  • Coffee May Prevent and Treat Alzheimer’s
  • Coffee May Help Diabetics
  • Caffeine Used to Fight Skin Cancer
  • Coffee Helps Hepatitis C Patients
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."

"Vitamin D is produced in the body primarily through exposure to sunlight.

Moreover, it plays a critical role in ensuring strong bones, healthy skin, proper cellular function and a strong immune system...

 

The Mayo Clinic suggests some symptoms which are indicative of a vitamin D deficiency:

-- Fatigue

-- Muscular aches

-- Gastrointestinal difficulties

-- Mental confusion or forgetfulness"

Chocolate (Cacao) - Ayurvedic Diet & Recipes - Joyful Belly

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...."

Not Work-Life Balance, Work-Life Tempo

Not Work-Life Balance, Work-Life Tempo | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it

 

"WORK_LIFE BALANCE IS A MYTH.  Have you tried to balance yourself on a thin beam? You can do it; it just takes a lot of concentration and effort. 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."

Many people who start a plant-based diet experience fatigue simply due to a lack or iron, and often make the assumption (which many of us have probably done), that it’s because of a lack of iron because they’re not eating meat anymore. Thankfully, this isn’t true.Iron can be consumed through a variety of plant-based foods, but it’s important to know what iron-rich foods to eat so your body gets the nutrients you need. Iron-based supplements derived from synthetic ironhaspotential side effects, so it’s much better to get iron from your foods.  There are some amazing sources of iron to add to your diet.

"I wasn’t always a honeybee lover. But, after directing the documentary film Vanishing of the Bees, narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page, I became an advocate for countless reasons. This fuzzy insect is one of endless surprise and delight.

For starters, honeybees are a female society, 95 percent of the hive are made up female workers, sisters to each other, and daughters of the Queen. They are considered to be ancient messengers as well as teachers when it comes to things such as cooperation, industriousness and adaptability.

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."
