agingSugar has been shown to have a maturing influence. You do not need to cut it out of your life entirely, however absolutely cut down on it. In several research studies, it has been shown to actually lower life-span. Stick with foods that are normally sweet, like fruits, to help curb your sweet yearnings.

Use olive oil and keep in mind fat does not equal bad. Oils have actually gotten a bum rap but they are necessary to our wellness. The technique is to stay away from “fake” fats like trans fats. Using olive oil has lots of heart healthy advantages so do not shy away from using it. Try making your own tossed salad vinaigrette’s of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Take anti-aging supplements along with vitamins on a daily basis. Make sure to do your research on the supplements that you pick as they do not all act the same, work the same or contain the same ingredients. Your physician can also help recommend good supplements to add to your daily regimen.

To make sure you are getting ample nutrients in your life as you age, try drinking smoothies 3 to 4 times weekly. Smoothies taste fantastic and are chock full of good nutrients. They normally consist of approximately five nutritional portions of fruits and veggies. Even better, smoothies are rather filling, so as a light lunch or a treat, they can help you manage your yearnings and drop weight!

Skin Care

There are skin-care products that produce collagen in your face and in your neck. Collagen contributes much toward skin remaining firm and supple. However as you get older, obviously, it doesn’t stay that way. Nevertheless, a good skin care cream, used on a daily basis, will go a long way towards slowing down the effects of aging.

Focus on products to fit your skin type, conditions, body type, and age. Anti-aging products are as different as night and day: dry skin versus oily skin, 20-somethings versus the 50+ demographic, light skin versus dark, and on and on. So determine what you are, research the products that target what you are. Skin care is all about personalization. There’s no reason to settle for middle of the road, status quo. Find what works for you.

Aging and even retirement should be fun and rewarding. You are what you are and are fine just as you are. But, if you make the personal decision to counteract the part of aging you don’t like, that’s okay too. Go for it. Try a few of the things pointed out in this short article. You might find that these years are the best years.

acneAcne is one of those things that everybody seems to get at one point or another, and yet nobody really likes it. While some cases are mild, other cases are quite severe and can lead to visible scarring. So, not only do these people have to suffer through a bad outbreak of acne, they then have to live with the scars for the rest of their lives. Or do they? The answer to that is no they don’t, or at least they can try any number of acne scars remedies that will minimize the scars that are there. Not all of these treatments will work the same on everybody, but they are worth trying if it means you can feel better about yourself.

One of the best known remedies for acne scars is citrus juice. You can apply the juice of a lemon or lime directly to the problem areas. However, some people find that pure citrus juice irritates their skin, so you may want to try different dilutions until you find the one that’s best for you. Apply it once or twice a day for several weeks and see how much lighter your scars look. It can take quite a while, but if it just doesn’t seem to be working for you, then you can try other acne scars remedies.

A lot of people swear by olive oil for making their acne scars less visible. In fact, there are any number of different oils that you can try. Simply massage the oil into the scar and the surrounding area, and let it sit. This helps to soften and moisturize the skin which can help diminish the visibility of acne scarring.

Here’s a natural remedy for acne that you may not be familiar with: tomatoes! That’s right. Tomatoes are high in Vitamin A which keeps the body from producing too much sebum, which is the substance that is largely responsible for acne to begin with. Tomatoes are also rich in antioxidants which are beneficial for repairing the skin.

One of the most soothing acne scars remedies is a mixture of rose water and sandalwood. Simply add a few drops of the rose water to the sandalwood until it is at a paste like consistency. Then put the resulting paste directly on the scars and let it sit for about an hour. This is generally very gentle on the skin, so you can even leave it on as you sleep.

You have to be more careful if you are currently experiencing an acne outbreak, as you shouldn’t let any foreign material (such as any of the above ingredients we’ve talked about) get into the sores. Not only can it be irritating, but it can also make the acne worse. However, if you need immediate comfort, you may want to try an icepack to help cool and temporarily tighten the skin.

While a lot of people have found success with the above acne scars treatments, you should always consult with a qualified medical professional before doing anything that has to do with your health.

broncSuffering from bronchitis? Looking for natural remedies to get rid of the extreme discomfort? Bronchitis is an infection and consequent inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes. There are two types of bronchitis that individuals suffer from. Acute bronchitis is a result of a cold or flu. Chronic bronchitis is caused by allergies, pollution and smoking. The symptoms of bronchitis include shortness of breath, wheezing, tightness in the chest, fatigue, and persistent cough with heavy and multicolored mucus.

8 Best Ways to Cure Bronchitis Naturally:

  1. Steam
    Steam treatment is among the best treatments for bronchitis. This can be done in the shower. An alternate remedy is to bring water to boiling point, and then bend over the container and cover the head and chest with a towel. The affected patient can now breathe the steam to stimulate the flow of mucus and relieve bronchial inflammation. To make the treatment more effective, it is suggested to add eucalyptus oil to the water. Eucalyptus helps to soften the mucus in the obstructed airways of the lungs. It is a natural antibacterial agent.
  2. Eucalyptus and Pine Oil
    Those suffering from bronchitis can rub a little eucalyptus or pine oil on the chest and back, behind the ears and on the soles of the feet. Pine oil is a natural expectorant while eucalyptus oil helps to relieve inflammation. Both the oils help to rid the body of phlegm. Affected individuals can also add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a handkerchief and inhale every few minutes.
  3. Water
    Water helps to thin the mucus and cough it up more easily. It is important that individuals affected by bronchitis drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. It is best to avoid alcohol and caffeinated drinks as they dehydrate the system, making it harder to rid the body of mucus. A glass of warm water in early morning helps to relieve the pain caused by bronchitis. It also stimulates the flow of mucus.
  4. Garlic
    Garlic is a powerful natural antibacterial and antiviral agent. Allicin in garlic relieves bronchial inflammation and helps to stimulate the production of mucus. Garlic can be consumed raw or powdered, mixed with a teaspoon of honey. The mixture should be swallowed, not chewed.
  5. Onion
    Like garlic, onion is a powerful antibiotic that helps to cure bronchitis. Onions can be eaten raw, with salads or powdered, mixed with a teaspoon of honey. The mixture should be swallowed, not chewed. Even the pungent odor of onions helps to stimulate the flow of mucus and relieve bronchial infection.
  6. Chili Pepper
    Chili Pepper or cayenne pepper helps to thin the mucus lodged in the lungs, causing it to flow and be thrown out of the body. It is advisable to eat spicy food in small quantities and as part of a meal. It has been proven that peppers help to relieve bronchial inflammation rapidly.
  7. Olive Leaf Extract
    Olive leaf extract is a natural antibacterial and antiviral agent that boosts the immune system and cures bronchitis. It is a powerful natural antibiotic that stimulates the flow of mucus, soothes the bronchial tubes to reduce inflammation and attacks the infection-causing microbes.
  8. Raw Honey and Cinnamon
    Raw honey is among the best natural remedies for bronchitis. Raw honey is a good source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which improve immunity and provide essential nutrients. It also boosts metabolism. Raw honey mixed with cinnamon is an amazing cure for bronchitis. Consuming this mixture everyday helps to improve the immune system and prevent future attacks of cold, bronchitis, flu and other respiratory conditions.

These natural home remedies will help to cure bronchitis and relieve the associated symptoms.

lose-weight-naturallyWith the spring in bloom, the promise of summer and people waking from their hibernation there’s never a more perfect time to get back on track with your diet and get in the best shape for the season ahead.

The most well known methods are to: Overcome unhealthy eating habits and exercise for 30 minutes every day. Here are 10 complimenting natural health tips that can help you to lose weight naturally and maintain a healthy body.

  1. Breakfast
    The old saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” certainly applies here as many studies have concluded. People who eat breakfast are much less likely to overeat during the day. A high in fibre, low fat bowl of oatmeal with fruit can fill you up for a while, keeping you satisfied up until lunch time, reducing the temptation of snacking.
  2. Spice
    Boost your metabolism with spice – Cayenne, cinnamon, ginger and horseradish. It’s noted that with just a single teaspoon of mustard you can increase your metabolism significantly for up to three hours.
  3. Water
    Many dieters drink eight glasses of water a day. Water supports good hydration, shrinks the appetite and helps with digestion.
  4. Seaweed
    Sea vegetables are rich in iodine, which keeps the thyroid gland from becoming slow which is a cause of weight increase. Simply add 2 tablespoons of chopped, dried seaweed to your meals, salads and soups will work particularly well with this.
  5. Green Tea
    Drinking green tea can encourage thermogenesis. This is the process where the body converts fat into energy. Specifically the caffeine and antioxidant catechins found in green tea aid this process.
  6. Nuts & Seeds
    Polyunsaturated fats such as omega-3 fatty acids found in coldwater fish, nuts, and seeds healthfully satiate and provide valuable energy. So try to eat these whilst reducing your intake of saturated fats which are difficult for the liver to metabolise.
  7. Bee Pollen
    The liver is your body’s chemical plant for fat metabolism. Optimise your livers detoxifying affects by taking bee pollen and sarsaparilla. In addition Milk thistle extract taken very day can also regenerate liver cells.
  8. Evening Primrose and St John’s Wort
    Stave off hunger and lift your mood with a daily dose of St. John’s Wort and evening primrose oil. These stave off hunger and help lift your mood by stimulating serotonin.

cancer-cureNature has our cancer cure and this is good news because cancer is one of the scariest diseases in the world, and hearing this diagnosis will make anyone tremble. This disease is associated with death, and hearing this diagnosis many people have only one question: “How long do I have to live?”.

There are many people who fight this disease, and among them, there are many who lose the fight. Rick Simpson is a man who was in that situation, and like many others before him, there was a moment when he lost hope. After trying the traditional treatment received in a hospital, he soon enough realized that it was not working. What is different about Rick Simpson is the fact that he didn’t give up, and remembering about an alternative treatment heard at a local radio, he decided to try.

The method tried is unconventional since it is based on cannabis oil, this being the reason it is dismissed by many doctors and researchers. After he had successfully cured his own cancer, Rick Simpson decided to help other people, and he gives them this oil for free, curing a large amount of people who were seriously ill. This man saved lives without asking for anything in return, and even if his story gets to the point where there is a warrant on his name for illegal cultivation of cannabis, his message is now throughout the world.

All those who are looking for a cure for cancer should definitely consider Rick Simpson’s oil, which is an efficient method to cure cancer, preserving the body’s natural health. This method is less invasive and more efficient than the well-known chemotherapy, and it should be considered by anyone who is in the situation of losing their life. Unfortunately chemotherapy is maintaining its powerful status in the process of fighting cancer, and even if it has been proved to have a fatal toxic effect upon the body, it is still used by many. This happens because they decide to believe the word of a specialist. For some of them this decision may cost their life, and there are many people who die because of this invasive treatment. Cannabis oil is hardly comparable with chemotherapy which typically suggests a 30% success rate against cannibis oil, which boasts 80-90% chance of being completely cured. In addition chemotherapy (Mustard Gas!) is so toxic to the body and has such a devastating effect on the bodys general health many people may be dyng from the treatment but statistics will also blame the cancer and never the treatment.

Right now the choice is entirely up to you, since you are the only one who knows what is best for your body, but before you make a decision think seriously about it. There are many people who dismiss cannabis because it is actually considered a drug used by so many people, especially teenagers. Make sure that in your fight against a considered drug you don’t end up hurting yourself or those you love. There are many people who are psychologically addicted to using cannabis, but this is not the plant’s fault, rather an independent decision of consuming it. Rick Simpson’s oil is not a drug, it is a natural herbal cure and we can only hope that soon enough there will be serious research conducted on the health giving benefits of cannibis oil by some of the large Cancer Research organisations.

I urge anybody who is personally affected by cancer to research for themselves, the information is out there, you just have to open your eyes.

Don’t feel hopeless because there is hope!

The truth is lives could be saved if only people would be more receptive to using this amazing natural product that has many positive health benefits.

healthy-bonesBone strength starts to deteriorate once we hit our mid-30s. These expert tips will help boost bone mineral density to keep your skeleton strong.

1. Eat a diet that is nutrient-dense and made up of a range of wholefoods, ideally cooked from fresh. Aim for good quality meat, pulses (lentils and beans), fish, tinned sardines, dairy products, nuts, fruit and a wide variety of vegetables. Keep crisps, cake and confectionary to a minimum, as they don’t have any health benefits.

2. For the body to absorb and use calcium effectively, it needs sufficient levels of vitamin D. Make sure you get enough exposure to sunshine in the summer – up to two 10 minute sessions of exposure to sun without sunscreen per day is fine if you have very fair skin and the recommended 15-20 minutes per day puts you at risk of burning (always use sunscreen the rest of the time). Eat foods that contain vitamin D, such as eggs and fortified breakfast cereals. You may want to consider a supplement, particularly if you are a pregnant woman or over 65 – your doctor will be able to advise.

3. Stick to the alcohol guidelines – currently 14 units a week for women and 21 for men (a 750ml bottle of wine has 10 units; a single measure (25ml) of spirits has one). Too much booze is bad for bones – it interferes with the absorption of both calcium and vitamin D.

4. Do some varied resistance exercise. After the age of 30, we start to lose bone density as well as muscle mass. Key problems associated with poor bone density are spinal, hip and wrist fractures. We can stop this decline with exercise, which helps to maintain muscle mass and strength. Resistance exercise, such as weight lifting or using our own body weight, is ideal. Don’t get too hung up on lifting huge weights or putting yourself through a punishing regime. Some activity is better than none!

5. See your doctor if you’re worried about bone density – for instance, if family members have it you may be more susceptible as there is a familial link. Other warning signs are broken bones during routine activities on several occasions. Osteoporosis is most prevalent in the post-menopausal female population, particularly those with early menopause. If you or your doctor suspects you have low bone mineral density you will be sent for a DEXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan. If you are found to have low bone density, you’ll be advised to undertake high impact sports like skiing with care as you’re at increased risk of breaking or fracturing a bone if you fall.

tomatosCarotenoids are what cause some fruits and vegetables to have bright colors, such as yellow, orange and red. Lycopene is the carotenoid that gives tomatoes their rich colors and is one of the most popular carotenoids found in the diets of many Americans and Europeans. Many carotenoids enable the body to make the vitamin A that it needs in order to be healthy, though lycopene is not one of them.

The cancer-preventing benefits of lycopene
Though the body does not use lycopene to make Vitamin A, it still adds a very valuable component to the diet. Studies have shown a positive correlation between those people with a diet high in tomatoes, and, therefore, lycopenes, and having a lower risk of some forms of cancer. This type of diet has been shown to be particularly helpful for reducing the risk of getting prostate, cervical, skin, bladder, stomach and lung cancers.

Other benefits of lycopene
As if the cancer-reducing benefits of lycopene were not enough, there are other health benefits of eating a diet rich in tomatoes. Researchers have found that the risk of heart disease can be lowered by such a diet. The risk of macular degeneration, which is a disease that often occurs as a person ages and can result in blindness, and lipid oxidation, the damage that occurs to normal fat cells that can then cause both inflammation and disease, have also been shown to be reduced by eating a diet that includes a variety of tomato-based dishes.

Lycopene is an impressive antioxidant which helps block the free radicals that can cause disease. Studies have also shown that lycopene helps protect DNA, cellular fats and enzymes while also lowering the levels of bad cholesterol, LDL, and boosting the immune system. While other foods, such as watermelon, apricots, papaya, pink grapefruit and guava, are also a significant source of lycopene, tomatoes contain the most concentrated amount of the carotenoid.

The form of tomatoes matters
While tomatoes eaten in any form deliver a powerful amount of lycopene, there are some methods of preparation that increase the amounts. Studies found that the levels of lycopene in the blood were greatest after study participants had eaten cooked tomatoes, compared to their levels after drinking tomato juice or eating raw tomatoes. In addition, by combining the consumption of tomatoes with oil or fat, such as the cheese in a pizza or a drizzle of salad oil, the amount of lycopene absorbed by the intestines is increased. For those people who want to supplement, lycopene is available either as a liquid or as soft gels.

Eating a diet rich with tomato-based foods gives the body a number of health benefits that are difficult to replicate in other ways. For best results, eat cooked tomatoes several times each week.
