Introducing Issue 42 of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine

Highly relevant to contemporary concerns, Issue 42 features antiviral herbs that really work, of which Echinacea is just one important remedy. We are well aware of why they are often ignored and/or unjustifiably disparaged.

Our focus on nutrition highlights bromelain (an enzyme sourced from pineapple) as a potential option for Covid-19 and how the humble dandelion leaf (which can easily be incorporated into summer salads) may block spike proteins from SARS-CoV-2 from binding to the surface of cells and may therefore assist in the prevention or treatment of Covid-19.

This issue also features an article on how to determine a saturation level of niacin (vitamin B3) an essential nutrient and one that can be of great benefit in appropriate therapeutic dosages to treat conditions such as cardiovascular disease, anxiety and depression and other problems often considered to be purely “mental”.

Nutrition plays a vital role in detoxification and we explore the role of nutrients in optimising the level of glutathione, a vitally important antioxidant peptide synthesised in your cells that plays a vital role in assisting with the detoxification of heavy metals, among other toxins, and has a vital role to play in keeping your immune system in top shape.

Acupuncture: it’s not just for sprained backs.

Social pressures and other factors may result in the development of eating disorders with potentially life-threatening consequences. In our series “Difficult Acupuncture Case Histories” author Rick Loos relates how acupuncture assisted one young woman to overcome a long standing eating disorder.

Altogether this is another issue of The New Zealand Journal of Natural Medicine that you won’t want to miss.

Wishing you the best of health,

Katherine Smith and Jonathan Eisen, Editors
