People here and abroad have been expressing their interest for this wild fruit; some even wonder if this is just another marketing hoax or a genuine discovery that can give our country a place in the scientific world. Well, there are so many things about “sapinit” that we ought to know before judging its true potential. However, with credible scientific research data to back it up, it seems that nothing will ever stop “sapinit” from gaining national recognition and worldwide fame.

10 Herbs That Heal
I’m a firm believer that God has put everything we need on this earth to prevent diseases and to heal ourselves.
Here is a list of some of top healing herbs that may be in your cupboard:
Rosemary has shown a lot of cancer-protective potential.” Frying, broiling, or grilling meats at high temperatures creates HCAs (heterocyclic amines), potent carcinogens implicated in several cancers. Rosemary contains carnosol and rosemarinic acid, two powerful antioxidants that destroy the HCAs.
Oregano this super herb is very rich in anti-oxidant phytochemical flavonoids and phenolic acids. Oregano oil has been classically used as a disinfectant, an aid for ear, nose, & throat/respiratory infections, candida, and any sort of bacterial or viral conditions.
Dill contains calcium and iron, and the oils in the plant may help to neutralize carcinogens, which are substances that have been shown to cause cancer. Dill also has a number of beneficial healing properties for the digestive system and has been used since ancient times to treat heartburn and diarrhea.
Cayenne highly effective pain reliever and is an ingredient in some over-the-counter pain relieving creams. It is also great for improving circulation, healing sore throats, and stimulating sweating to help relieve cold symptoms.
Cilantro the carboxylic acid in cilantro binds to heavy metals such as mercury in the blood and carries them out of the body. Their removal reverses the toxin buildup that causes chronic fatigue, joint pain and depression.
Mint counteract nausea and vomiting, promote digestion, calm stomach muscle spasms, relieve flatulence, and ease hiccups. Menthol, the aromatic oil in peppermint, also relaxes the airways and fights bacteria and viruses.

When it comes to the herbs you're taking, are you unwittingly making mistakes that could harm your health? Here's a rundown of the 10 most common herb mistakes.
1) You drink chamomile tea without knowing what medications it interacts with.
Although most people think of chamomile tea as being harmless, it can have some serious side effects if it's combined with certain medications.
For example, a case report published in the April 2006 issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal describes a 70-year-old woman who, while being treated with the drug warfarin, was admitted to hospital with internal bleeding after having used chamomile tea and body lotion for cold symptoms.
Tip Take a look at this list of drugs that can interact with chamomile.
Constant weariness, tiredness, or lack of energy warrants a trip to your primary care provider, not the health food store. Although diet and supplements may help, the first step is make sure that the cause of the fatigue isn't an underlying illness, such as:
Fatigue can also be a symptom of other conditions such as infectious diseases (e.g. mononucleosis), heart failure, diabetes, liver or kidney disease, Addison's disease, Autoimmune diseases (e.g. lupus), cancer, malnutrition, or due to medication side effects.
Tip See your primary health provider first. He or she will ask you questions and make sure you have the proper laboratory and/or imaging tests to rule out these conditions. Then you can think about natural approaches.
3) You take herbs, supplements, and/or drugs that together may increase your risk of bleeding.

When they are combined with herbs and supplements that also have an anticoagulant effect, they can increase the risk of bleeding:
