East meets West

East meets West

Have you considered using nebulized gluthathione to counter the effects of the pollution you see outside your window asked my friend Ben Greenfield.

Nebulize Glutathione?

Nebulized means to convert a liquid into a fine mist or spray. If you are asthmatic, you know what I am talking about.

Your body makes a powerful antioxidant called glutathione. Gluthathione is used by your respiratory tract to repair its lining. 

So nebulizing glutathione and inhaling it makes perfect sense.

In fact, the early use of nebulized glutathione has been shown to be effective in helping people suffering from the symptoms of COVID-19, asthma, and respiratory diseases.

Which brings me to an interesting fork in the road between east and west.

Eastern medicine relies more on herbs making their way into traditional medicine. With a rich history of Ayurveda and Naturopathy, we invariably turn to our local practitioners for dealing with ailments.

Western medicine has taken a systemic approach, discovering drugs and inventing medicines, which has now carried over to prevention and natural healing.

So we see supplements such as NAD, curcumin, and resveretrol making their way to your medicine cabinet.

It makes for an interesting debate on the future of preventive healing. Traditional, modern, or a blend of both?

The West keeps discovering traditional medicinal cures and inventing products successfully.

I can think of no better example than the use of Haldi in India as a cure-all, which has now acquired the fancy name of curcumin in a pill.

My bias has always been natural, so consume the Haldi, or Turmeric not the pill.

Yet, when you look at the use of modern science to aerosolize gluthathione as a cure for our modern problem of pollution, it is hard to turn away.

Personally, I believe we are heading for a blend. Traditional medicine needs to find a better way to communicate its effectiveness based on evidence and peer-reviewed studies.

Modern tools are now moving from curing to prevention, which has long been the basis for Ayurvedic medicine.
