Health Hacks in a Readable Form

Candace McNaughton, ND wrote in to provide the hacks from her great talk, Health Hacks- Natural Medicine Quick Fixes, in a list form. Enjoy!

Following are the eight health hacks presented at the third Ignite Seattle. Keep in mind that these are meant to be examples of some quick-acting natural approaches rather than representative of naturopathic treatment. Treatment plans are always more holistic and complex.

Overeating– Hoodia gordonii, 250-500 mg twenty minutes before a meal. Eat less that meal
Afternoon slumps – 15-20 grams protein in the morning balances blood sugar
Migraine – 150-200 mg Butterbur can avert migraine in process.
Diabetes – Gymnema and other plants balance blood sugar. Gymnema on tongue blocks sweet receptors.
Fatigue – B12/BComplex intramuscular injections. Feel energy boost right away.
Traveler’s Diarrhea – Probiotics like lactobacillis acidophilus can prevent or stop this condition.
Smoking Cessation – Lobelia fills nicotine receptors, calms anxiety, and is a muscle relaxant.
Anxiety – California poppy, hops, oats, valerian, skullcap, passionflower all calm mental & physical symptoms.

Worldwide Lexicon Unveiled at Ignite

Brian McConnell, one of our Ignite 3 speakers, wrote in to tell us that the subject of his talk is ready to be used! From Brian:

The Worldwide Lexicon, an open source translation project, made its first appearance at Ignite. WWL enables websites to translate their content to any language, by recruiting bilingual users from their audience to contribute translations via a wiki. WWL is inviting more websites to join its test. Visit for more information.

Joining the network is as simple as posting your site’s full text RSS feed address. WWL polls your RSS feed for new texts, and then creates wiki pages for translations to any number of languages. You can either let WWL host the translations, or if you want to be fancy about it, loop RSS back from the WWL system to your site.
