Medicinal Benefits from Everyday Foods
More and more we are hearing how people are healing their bodies from terrible diseases after their doctors give up on them, by switching to a Whole Foods or Raw Foods diet. Why do you think that is? Could there really be healing and life saving benefits from eating regular non-processed foods?
When something as simple as eating 6 stalks of celery, will lower high blood pressure and reduce stress hormones, maybe it's worth investigating!
In the "Food as Medicine" section we take a look at some of the incredible things that ordinary foods can do for your body. Join us as we explore the amazing facts so often overlooked in our current society!
Tried and True Home Remedies
Believe it or not, due to the overuse of antibiotics, we’ve unwittingly helped nature breed dangerous strains of antibiotic-immune superbugs that threaten our very existence. We are finally realizing that we truly cannot fool Mother Nature.
While it’s easy for these superbugs to evolve and develop a resistance to single or multi-compound antibiotics, it’s much harder for them to find a way around the more complex and numerous compounds found in so many natural sources.
So it would seem that Mom's and Grandma's home remedies, and some of those old wives tales like "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", still have an important place in how we choose to manage our health today.
We have put together some remedies we are familiar with in the "Home Remedies" section. Feel free to add some of your own in the comments.
Throughout time herbs have provided us with a source of food and medicine. But since the discovery of penicillin we have gravitated away from their use, and knowledge of them is no longer being handed down through our families.
How many people would know that you could use a certain common weed to help heal a gangrenous toe? Or that slippery elm bark can assist in healing ulcers? Would they even know how to prepare them for use?
In our "Herbs for Life" section, we hope to fill that void and help bring that knowledge back into more widespread use, by making it available to you. Take a journey with us through the age-old knowledge of healing herbs and learn how to put their amazing properties to work for you!
Essential Oils - Molecular Super Heroes
"Stronger than pharmaceuticals! Faster than any pill! Able to make a huge difference with a single drop!" These little guys are super potent and lightening fast! If you aren't familiar with essential oils or want to learn more, you're really gonna wanna check this out!
There are approximately 40 million trillion molecules in one drop of essential oil (that's approximately 40,000 molecules for each cell in the average human body). They can spread throughout your system in 30 seconds and even penetrate the blood-brain barrier! They are also aromatic, so even just inhaling them can have profound effects on the body, brain, and emotions. Some scientists predict they may even one day replace antibiotics for some purposes.
Around 340 BC, Aristotle believed that in addition to the four physical elements (fire, air, earth and water) there was a fifth element, quintessence. This was considered to be the “spirit” or life force of the plant. The term “essential oil” actually comes from the idea of “quintessential oil.” Today, essential oils are making a comeback.
You're not going to want to miss this! Access the adventure in our "Quintessential Essential Oils" section, as we dive into the incredible world of these molecular super heroes and discover what they can do for you!
