The Amazing Healing Properties of 13 Common Fruits

The Amazing Healing Properties of 13 Common Fruits | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it
Fruits elicit not only joy in the eating of them -- incidentally, the word fruit stems from the Latin word frui, meaning "to enjoy, use" -- but they also nourish and protect the body with powerful, built-in medicinal activity. Fruits are, of course, by design a "perfect food," intended to entice animals to consume them in order to help disseminate their seed.

Read this interesting article on the Amazing Healing Properties of 13 Common Fruits. And be sure to eat a few pieces of fruit (organic preferable) every day to get all the health benefits and to add sweetness into your meals. A good idea is to try a new fruit every day or at least once a week So what's your favorite fruit?

Your body will tell you when it's unhealthy. Your skin is one of the first places where you can visibly see the symptom of a more serious health issue.  This is the time to pay attention and change your lifestyle  habits beginning with what you eat.

 

Here are 10 Foods for Healthy Skin from Green Living with recipes.

Buy organic fruits, especially the papaya, as it is loaded with pesticides.

Herbs are Mother Nature's proprietary medicine found in your yard or kitchen pantry. They've been used by Chinese and Indian practitioners for thousands of years. They work without side effects. Consider using them in place of synthetic pharmaceutical drugs or over the counter medicines which are also synthetic. Your body is organic and works best with herbs. If you're not familiar with herbs find a  professional who is knowledgeable in this field or educate yourself.

 

Ibuprofen, which many people turn to for help with inflammation is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular and G.I. problems.

Research: 7 Nutritional Deficiencies That Cause Depression & Mood Disorders

Research: 7 Nutritional Deficiencies That Cause Depression & Mood Disorders | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it

 "If you suffer from depression or mood disorders you may be deficient in one of these nutrients."

 

Depression and mood disorders are devastating health problems today. When you go to your doctor, their answer is often a prescription for one of the various popular anti-depressant drugs.

 

Many doctors do not investigate for metabolic or nutritional deficiencies that may be the ‘real problem’ for your depression. Patients have no idea why they feel so awful or where to start looking for the answer. They expect their doctor to give them real solutions. Instead they get drugs as the easy fix. Drugs are not an easy fix because of the serious side effects that come with taking them.

  An interesting fact - Lavender was one of the most popular herbs in England during the Victorian era. Women carried "swooning pillows" filled with lavender and camphor so they could be revived from fainting. Bed pillows filled with lavender without camphor were used to induce sleep. Lavender helps with headaches and skin conditions, burns, and soothes stomach upset.
