Watercress has a viewed as both a healing agent and a weed. The plant has old history in the treatment of scurvy a disease resulting from Vitamin C deficiency. Recent scientific studies indicate that this historic plant can protect human DNA from damage. A 2010 study conducted by the University of Southampton found that consumption of watercress May also inhibit the growth of breast cancer. The high content of phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) May explain some of the benefits. If you can find this plant pick up a bunch and try it out. It has a tangy taste since it is in the same family as mustard. It does not have a long shelf life 2-3 days refrigerated and is eaten raw. You can sprikle it in a regular salad for deeper flavor or eat it by itself. About Dr. Powell I have spent every moment since 1995 learning practicing and teaching chiropractic. I am currently focused on the brain-body connection through chiropractic and share my experience with students of Life University as an instructor in the clinic system. I use my knowledge of structure and function tone congenital abnormalities and connective tissue involvement to produce astounding effects with very little time. My goal is your optimal physical mental and social well-being by encouraging possibilities. Remember health is not just the absence of illness or disease but the presence of optimal physical mental and social well-being. I am aware that external factors like the type of work we do can have deleterious effects on our health and sometimes cause pain and discomfort. Expect extraordinary results.
