Digestion

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Digestion: Barley Grass Black Seed Oil Cats Claw Chamomile Cinnamon Curcumin Ginger Hemp Oil Peppermint Spearmint Valerian Wheat Grass Natural Cures and Remedies for Digestion Sleeping pills are no remedy for sleeplessness. They are habit forming and become less effective when taken continuously. They lower the I.Q., dull the brain and can prove fatal if taken in excess or before or after alcohol. The side-effects of sleeping pills include indigestion, skin rashes, lowered resistance to infection, circulatory and respiratory problems, poor appetite, high blood pressure, kidney and liver problems and mental confusion. The process of digestion begins in the mouth. The saliva in the moth, besides helping to masticate the food, carries an enzyme called ptyalin which begins the chemical action of digestion. It initiates the catabolism (breakdown) of carbohydrates by converting starches into simple sugars. This explains the need for thorough mastication of starchy food in the mouth. If this is not done the ptyalin cannot carry out its functions as it is active in an alkaline, neutral or slightly acid medium and is inactivated by the highly acid gastric juices in the stomach.

Strokes

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Strokes: Fish Oils Ginko Biloba Hemp Oil Natural Cures and Remedies for Strokes Hypertension, if not eliminated, may cause heart attacks or strokes or other disability conditions such as detachment of the terina. The hypertension and the hypercholesterolemia that occur in conjunction with obesity both increase the incidence of strokes in fat folks. The brain uses more oxygen than any organ of the body and depends on an unimpeded flow of oxygenated blood. When that flow is interrupted, either because a blood vessel ruptures under high blood pressure or because an artery or arteriole becomes clogged from the buildup of cholesterol, the brain tissue that the blood flow nourishes will quickly die. The tragic result is a stroke whose damage is all too frequently permanent; severe disability or death will usually follow.

Literally, the more infections people experienced, the more likely they were to develop and die from heart disease. It wasn’t that the bacteria and viruses were directly infecting the heart.

More likely, repeated infections maintained a heightened activity of immune cells, which unleashed part of their damage on blood vessel walls. To reduce the risk of contracting colds and flus, it is important to exercise caution when interacting with infected people.

Umbilical Hernia

If you have a swelling or pain in the tummy button called your umbilicus, this is due to a rupture known as a hernia. Because of its position in the tummy button the rupture is called an umbilical hernia. Umbilical hernias account for approximately 14% of all hernias. In some adults umbilical hernias will not resolve and may progressively worsen over time. They are sometimes caused by abdominal pressure due to being overweight excessive coughing or pregnancy.

Pancreas

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Pancreas: Hemp Oil Natural Cures and Remedies for Pancreas After all the preparation is completed and the food is cooked, you sit down and begin slowly chewing your food (the key here is slowly). Again you’ll notice the increased saliva in your mouth. Within your saliva is the first phase of digestion, a little enzyme called amylase. As you chew your food, amylase coats it and begins breaking it down. As the swallowed food travels to your stomach, stomach acids are waiting for it. Your stomach turns on like a washing machine and heats up like an oven, tumbling the food with the acid to break it down to a recognizable molecule: a protein, a carbohydrate, a sugar, and so on. en the stomach sends cues to your pancreas to release the Even mild to moderate obesity can increase the risk of developing non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus by a multiple of ten.

It gradually destroys its functions and often causes cirrhosis of the liver. It leads to disorders of the stomach and bowels. It can cause brain damage as brain cells are often affected by it. Alcohol also affects the heart which becomes weak and flabby. In cirrhosis of the liver, although regenerative activity continues, the progressive loss of liver cells exceeds cell replace- ment. There is also progressive distortion of the vascular system which interferes with the portal blood flow through the liver. The progressive degeneration of liver structure and function may ultimately lead to hepatic failure and death.

For the same reason you should not apply it to open wounds and cuts, as too much arnica can then be absorbed into the bloodstream. However, applying the ointment well away from the cut is acceptable: keep a 2-3cm gap between the margin of the cut and the cream application, and apply arnica in a thinner layer than you would to unbroken skin, where it can be applied quite liberally. There is little point in applying arnica to injuries that are more than one day old – arnica is very much a first-aid item that must be applied as soon as possible after the injury to prevent local haemorrhage and swelling.

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Burns: Aloe Natural Cures and Remedies for Burns Free radicals are found in virtually all dangerous chemicals, including air pollutants and cigarette smoke, and are generated when your body is exposed to radiation (even from sunlight). They are also created when your body burns food for energy, breaks down harmful chemicals in the liver, or fights infections. Indeed, your body’s white blood cells generate large quantities of free radicals to destroy bacteria and virus-infected cells. Cool, soothing and sedative, blue alleviates pain, reducing bleeding and heals burns.

High blood sugar

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for High blood sugar: Fenugreek  Natural Cures and Remedies for High blood sugar The inability to convert blood sugar to vitamin C may very well predispose people to adult-onset diabetes; excess glucose remains in the blood instead of being converted to vitamin C. Indeed, the chemical similarities between blood sugar and vitamin C lead to a competition between them; both molecules enter the cell on the same transporter protein. This competition takes on greater significance when one considers that diabetes has a strong inflammatory component.

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Congestive heart failure: Hawthorn Natural Cures and Remedies for Congestive heart failure Obesity, cardiac disease, and death go hand in hand, independent of all other risk factors.

Of all the neurotransmitters studied to date, Serotonin appears to be the most important in the development of PMS. Indeed, PMS shares many of the features of other mood and anxiety disorders. I treated a 28-year-old mother of one who had significant irritability 7 to 10 days prior to her menstrual cycle and who refused to take prescription medication. She was treated with 5-HTP-a standing dose of 30 mg twice a day, with “as needed” doses of 15-20 mg throughout the days of her PMS. That made a total of 50-70 mg day. She was able to control her irritability and emotionalism during her menstrual phase without the use of prescription medications.

All of Hank and Debra’s health problems were treated according to the prevailing medical standards of care.

Teeth

TMJ disease is often corrected with a plastic cover over the teeth to separate the upper jaw and the lower jaw.

One theory is that migraine develops because the nervous system is vulnerable to sudden changes either within the body or in the environment; according to this reasoning, migraine sufferers have inherited a more sensitive nervous system response to such changes than people who are not prone to getting migraine headaches. During a migraine attack, changes in brain activity produce an inflammation of the blood vessels and nerves in and around the brain. Migraine medication may produce relief by quieting sensitive nerve pathways and reducing their inflammatory reactions.

Reflexology

  What is reflexology? Reflexology is the application of pressure stretch and movement to the feet and hands to effect corresponding parts of the body. Reflexologists view the feet and hands as a mirror image of the body. By applying technique a reflexologist can break up patterns of stress in other parts of the body. How does reflexology work? There are many theories but in our approach we look at the nervous system as the explanation of reflexology’s working. Pressure applied to the feet generates a signal through the peripheral nervous system. From there it enters the central nervous system where it is processed in various parts of the brain. It is then relayed to the internal organs to allocate the necessary adjustments in fuel and oxygen Finally a response is fashioned that is sent onto the motor system. This message is feed forward to adjust the body’s tone or overall tension level. If applied properly the tone will reset itself to a lower operating tempo. A lower operating tempo means a lessening of stress and less wear and tear on the body’s systems. Where do you apply technique? We apply techniques to the feet and hands. There is a school of thought Read More …

Cuts

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Cuts: Burdock Root Echinacea Angustifolia Echinacea Purpurea Witch Hazel Natural Cures and Remedies for Cuts Arnica is not suitable for internal use as it can be quite toxic, unless it is in a homeopathic form. For the same reason you should not apply it to open wounds and cuts, as too much arnica can then be absorbed into the bloodstream. However, applying the ointment well away from the cut is acceptable: keep a 2-3cm gap between the margin of the cut and the cream application, and apply arnica in a thinner layer than you would to unbroken skin, where it can be applied quite liberally. There is little point in applying arnica to injuries that are more than one day old – arnica is very much a first-aid item that must be applied as soon as possible after the injury to prevent local haemorrhage and swelling. Small cuts, scrapes, and burns are common injuries: I cannot tell you how many times my husband has burnt himself in the kitchen, only to shrug o? my o?er of a little burn salve.

Gingivitis

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Gingivitis: Goldenseal Green Tea Natural Cures and Remedies for Gingivitis Conventional dentistry takes a mechanical approach to what is a biological issue. Many dental procedures entail digging into tissues, filing away teeth, and building new structures. For example, the standard treatment for periodontitis in the United States is to clean teeth and then to cut away inflamed tissue. This contrasts with the approach of European dentists, who clean teeth and then allow the tissues to heal over many months. For gingivitis, conventional treatments involve better oral hygiene. TMJ disease is often corrected with a plastic cover over the teeth to separate the upper jaw and the lower jaw. For many disorders inflammation is so obvious it does not have to be measured. For example, the pain of arthritis is a clear enough sign of inflammation. Swelling, redness, and tenderness to the touch also are obvious signs of inflammation in muscle injuries, gingivitis, and many other disorders. These are typically localized forms of inflammation, though they burden the entire body with a variety of inflammation-promoting substances. Tests to confirm inflammation in these situations may be an unnecessary expense. Goldenseal, Read More …

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Boils: Echinacea Eleutherococcus Ginseng Rhodiola Tea tree oil Topical Garlic Natural Cures and Remedies for Boils The real cause of eczema however is the failure of the human system to excrete the poisons from the various orifices of the body.

Sometime the pores of the skin are overworked as waste matter is not properly eliminated from the other orifices. If the pores are not given the chance to perform their normal function, the sweat will be full of morbid matter and this gives rise to skin diseases like eczema, acne, boils and other eruptions. This herb provides a basis for the treatment of chronic (long-lasting) skin diseases such as psoriasis, acne, acne rosacea, eczema and boils.

Fibromyalgia

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Fibromyalgia: 5-HTP Hemp Oil With Cbd Melatonin Natural Cures and Remedies for Fibromyalgia CFS/FMS is notorious for causing a sleep disorder where stage 3 sleep intrudes into stage 4 sleep. This causes the all too familiar morning sensation of being “run over by a truck.” Fibromyalgia researchers call it “non-refreshing sleep.” Without sufficient stage 4 sleep, growth hormone cannot be produced. Without growth hormone, the cells of the body cannot be properly maintained. This may account for the exaggerated fatigue experienced after exertion. The muscle cells never get the opportunity to completely heal after normal wear and tear.

Fibromyalgia continues to be considered a controversial diagnosis, lacking a widely accepted scientific consensus as to its cause. Not all members of the medical community regard Fibromyalgia a disease because of a frequent lack of precise abnormalities on physical examination and the absence of objective diagnostic tests or laboratory findings. However, Fibromyalgia has been recognized as a diagnosable disorder by the American College of Rheumatology and the Read More …

Eye Problems

The fine skin around your eyes is the first to show the signs of ageing as well as dark circles and puffiness. Don’t be tempted to deal with the problem by slapping on heavy oils and moisturizers – your eyes will benefit more from specially designed eye creams and gels. The delicate skin around your eyes needs extra special care because it’s thinner than the skin on the rest of your face so it’s less able to hold in moisture. There are also fewer oil glands in this area which adds to the potential dryness and there’s no fatty layer underneath the skin to act as a shock absorber. The result is that this skin quickly loses its elasticity. CHOOSING AN EYE TREATMENT Face creams and oils are too heavy for the eye area. They can block tear ducts causing puffy eyes so you should choose a specific eye treatment that won’t aggravate your skin. There are hundreds of products to choose from. Gel-based ones are great for young or oily skins and are refreshing to use. However most women find light eye creams and balms more suitable. Use a tiny amount of the eye treatment as you don’t want Read More …

Concentration

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Concentration: Ginko Valerian Natural Cures and Remedies for Concentration Aromatase is a key enzyme in steroid hormone metabolism, and its inhibition may partially explain the activity of the roots in BPH. The polysaccharide fraction of the aqueous root extract show prolonged antiedemic and antiinflammatory activity (40 mg/kg orl rat). Ethanolic extract also inhibits elastase, a destructive enzyme in the inflammatory process (IC50=68 µg/ml). The isolectin (UDA), abundant in the roots, may contribute to the antiinflammatory and antiprostatic activity of the extracts. Aqueous extracts interfere with, dose-dependently (0.6–10 mg/ml), the binding of dihydrotestosterone to SHBG (with specific receptors on human prostatic membranes). The alcoholic extract, UDA, and stigmast-4-en-3-one were inactive. At concentrations of 0.1 mg/ml, some root extracts inhibited Na+, K+-ATPases 27.6–81.5%. Stigmast-4-en-3-one, stigmasterol, and campesterol inhibited Na+, K+-ATPases 23–67% at concentrations of 1-1000 µ M. Such inhibition may influence prostate cell metabolism and growth (Bombardelli and Morazzoni, 1997). Root polysaccharide extracts anticomplementary (IC50=

Hepatitis

From our list of herbs and spices, the following are recommended for Hepatitis: Blue-Green Algae Comfrey Dong Quai Kava Kava Natural Cures and Remedies for Hepatitis To reduce the risk of contracting colds and flus, it is important to exercise caution when interacting with infected people. For example, wash your hands after touching a person (or touching objects the person has recently touched) who has such an infection. To reduce your risk of HIV and some types of hepatitis, avoid unprotected sexual contact or other exchanges of body fluids, such as through the use of unsterilized syringes. Sometimes people with chronic hepatitis may be asymptomatic, and at other times they may experience extreme fatigue and loss of appetite. In both acute and chronic hepatitis liver enzymes become elevated—one sign of liver disease. Noninfectious hepatitis may result from drug or alcohol abuse. Often, the stress of hepatitis reduces levels of glutathione, one of the body’s principal antioxidants, which is made in the liver. The viral and inflammatory stresses, combined with low glutathione levels, compromise liver function and may lead to cirrhosis or liver failure.
