Natural allergy relief that is so complete and immediate (and cheap), it may blow you away

Natural allergy relief that is so complete and immediate (and cheap), it may blow you away | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

 

 

 "My 10-year-old son has increasing problems with seasonal allergies — we brace ourselves as spring comes with its pollen because this kid really reacts. Last year we kept him comfortable with over-the-counter medications, local honey, regular elderflower tea, lavender oil in a nebulizer/diffuser concoction as he sleeps, and a chest rub of lavender and eucalyptus oil in a carrier oil. The remedies helped keep him comfortable but he still needed a small dose of allergy medication, nearly daily. With each year we have added some new tools to the arsenal but it has felt impossible to stay in front of the problem, until now... This season’s addition has been near-miraculous for him: nettle leaf."

9 Kiwi Fruit Benefits - Reducing Cancer Risk, Promoting Vision ("a small fruit with a lot of punch")

9 Kiwi Fruit Benefits - Reducing Cancer Risk, Promoting Vision ("a small fruit with a lot of punch") | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

 

"Attention kiwi lovers. As delectable as the kiwi fruit is, did you know that this fruit also offers numerous health benefits? It’s not surprising, as nature offers countless natural foods that have been used as medicine throughout history. Also known as the Chinese gooseberry, and once the “sunny peach”, kiwifruit has been declared by some to be one of the world’s most nutritionally perfect foods. It’s time to experience all of the kiwi fruit benefits that the fruit has to offer.

 

Kiwifruit is known for it’s high vitamin C content – containing more of the vitamin than even an orange.  Kiwi is also a great ‘prebiotic’ food. Prebiotic nutrients help to feed the probiotic bacteria in your gut (these bacteria are essential for optimal health). This helps keep digestive health in check while also helping to prevent a number of health issues."

Teo Rui Ling's curator insight, February 22, 9:35 AM

I was really surprised after reading the article. I have always thought that drinking caffeine makes one dull and slow, but it can actually treat illnesses such as skin cancer or even Alzheimer's! Maybe coffee can do one good too. But it is still good to keep the quantity moderate, as too much can also do bad. Overall, this piece of news encouraged me to continue to drink more caffeine as I was afraid that I would become dull in the future if i consumed too much. Nevertheless, we ought to take in more caffeine as prevention is better than cure, for example; preventing one from getting Alzheimer's.

Love Potions or Homeopathy for the Heart | Alice Carr Homeopath

Love Potions or Homeopathy for the Heart | Alice Carr Homeopath | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"When I talk to people about homeopathy, some are surprised that it can help emotional conditions, and others are surprised that it can help with physical ailments.  In fact, it can help with both, and the homeopathic system believes the physical and emotional are not just intertwined, but part of the same imbalance in the person, which must be corrected to restore wellbeing.

 

This is never more true than when considering the heart, and it is no coincidence that we think of the heart as the seat of emotions, joy, love or grief.  Often we will find that after a grief or loss, physical heart problems may occur and there are homeopathic remedies that are designed to deal with these circumstances."

Chocolate (Cacao) - Ayurvedic Diet & Recipes - Joyful Belly | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

 

"ABOUT:  Romance may be sealed with a box of chocolates, but passion for chocolate is as eternal as true love. Long before John Cadbury invented the chocolate bar, native meso-american peoples brewed chocolate with medicinal herbs. Chocolate has been used as sacrament and in shamanic ceremony, a practice that continues to this day, for over three millennia. The botanical name of chocolate, 'Theobroma', means "Food of the Gods", a testimony that your affection for chocolate may be as deep as your soul.

 

Sensual and luxurious, chocolate is evocative of desire and indulgence. It warms the heart and abdomen while elevating mood and lifting depression. Chocolate is an aphrodisiac, especially for women for whom chocolate may be addictive. The caffeine in chocolate stimulates brain activity and elevates the mood. Cinnamon or cayenne in hot chocolate enhances these passionate and stimulating qualities...."

If you move, you need to move slowly in order to retain your balance. Have you tried to balance something on your head? Or, have you participated in a race in which you must balance an egg on a spoon? Both are doable. You just need to move slowly.

 

BALANCING WILL NOT SUFFICE IN TODAY"S FAST PACED WORLD. 

Of course, you can slow down and unplug from it all, and you definitely need to do this at times. However, depending on what type of life you want to live, a slow-pace or disconnected way may not work for you and your life purpose. A life choice for sure."

Know your egg terminology before heading to the store - Washington Post | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

' "Take this list to the grocery store."

Eggs have long been a symbol of new beginnings. Now they are celebrating a new chapter of their own, with the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s recommendation to lift the long-held limit on dietary cholesterol. It turns out that for the vast majority of people the cholesterol we eat doesn’t significantly raise our blood cholesterol; rather, saturated fat does. So foods that are relatively low in saturated fat but high in cholesterol, primarily shellfish and eggs, have been freed from the yoke of restriction (pardon the pun, I couldn’t help myself)." '

Magnesium: The Important Mineral You’re Probably Not Getting Enough Of | Natural Grocers | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including those involved in protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation. It is also required for energy production and the synthesis of RNA, DNA, and the important antioxidant glutathione. And magnesium is a key player in maintaining healthy bone.

 

Low magnesium intakes and blood levels have been associated with type-2 diabetes, elevated C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation), hypertension, sudden cardiac death, osteoporosis, migraine headache, asthma, and colon cancer. As you can see, magnesium is no minor player in whole body health."

Food As Medicine: How Diet Can Help Prevent Cancer

Food As Medicine: How Diet Can Help Prevent Cancer | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

"Diet in and of itself plays an important role in cancer prevention. Though the association between diet and cancer prevention is still not definitive, recent evidence suggests that diet may modify the risk of many cancers, including gastric, colorectal, breast, prostate, and lung cancers. For example, intake of dietary fiber and high consumption of fruit, vegetables, and fish has been associated with reduced risk of a number of cancers.

 

Some population studies also demonstrate that vegetarianism is associated with lower risk of overall cancer and female-specific cancers. On the other hand, red and processed meat, dairy, alcohol, and saturated fat increase the risk of certain cancers.  Research has found that vegetables and fruits containing high level of carotenoids (carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, papaya, tomatoes, etc.), cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bokchoy, broccoli, etc.), and antioxidant-rich foods (blueberries, blackberries, green tea, garlic, etc.) are linked to lower cancer incidence."

How to make the ancient grain amaranth: Recipe for breakfast amaranth with walnuts and honey

"Amaranth is the new quinoa. You heard it here first!  Both amaranth and quinoa are examples of the much-hyped "ancient grains" that are a wonderful nutritional addition to your diet.  The big difference is that quinoa has landed on the "trendy" list, while amaranth has remained in relative obscurity. I was fairly oblivious to its existence until Connor's mom suggested I do a video on it. And I'm so glad she did!

Amaranth is actually technically a seed, not a grain. It packs quite a nutritional punch: it's a complete protein, has all the amino acids, and is a great source of fiber, magnesium, and iron. It's rare that a grain/seed contains all that, so the term "super food" is well earned in this case.  Connor's mom also passed along a recipe suggestion for amaranth, and after I gave it a try I decided I needed to share it with you guys!"

They are selfless and work together with swarm intelligence for the greater good of the hive. They do amazing things like beat their wings at 250 times a second, twisting them for maximum lift."
