Parasites Cleansing

HerbalRemedies

The best time to cleanse the body of parasites is during the three-
day stage of the full moon. On the first day of the full moon drink
4 to 8 ounces of sweet water (honey and water). This will bring the
parasites out. An hour later take30 drops (liquid tincture) of clove,
black walnut and pumpkin under the tongue every four hours for the
entire 3 days while the moon is full. Taking liquid herbs under the
tongue by-passes the digestive system and immediately goes into the
blood stream.

If you missed the full moon stage you can also try another remedy

For one week take black walnut in capsule form (3 capsules 3 times a
day) for one week. Also chew on RAW Pumpkin seeds (one hand full
twice daily). After 7 days have passed STOP THE REGIMEN.

For one week move the bowels so that you can get rid of the dead
parasites. Use a mild laxative like Aloe or Cascara Sagrada. After 7
Days STOP. COLONICS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THIS PROCESS

For the third week go back to taking black walnut in capsule form (3
capsules 3 times a day) for one week. Also chew on RAW Pumpkin seeds
(one hand full twice daily). After 7 days have passed STOP COLONICS
ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THIS PROCESS

For the fourth week cleanse the bowels with a mild laxative again.
Please be aware that you might see a couple of unsightly worms or
dead parasites in your stool. Don’t be alarmed. This is a good
thing.
It’s best to have dead parasites floating in your toilet to be
living
in your body.

The last week take Black walnut in capsule form (2 capsules 3 times
daily) for one week. Eating Raw Pumpkins seeds is optional.

Cleanse the bowels and say bye bye to nasty parasites.

Take a Cold Shower & Improve Your Health this Summer

 

coldSHOWER

It’s the summer and what better way to beat the heat this season than by replacing your scolding hot showers with a cold one? But lowering your water temperature can do far more than just cut utility costs and cool you down—there are an enormous amount of other benefits that can help you improve your overall health.

Helps With Blood Circulation

If your blood does not properly circulate throughout your veins and arteries, your tissues and organs will not be able to absorb the necessary amount of oxygen and nutrients. As an end result, you can get high blood pressure, ugly varicose veins in your legs, puffy bags under the eyes and heart disease—one of the leading causes for death among Americans. While there several different ways to improve circulation throughout your body such as via exercising, experts say that hydrotherapy (switching from warm water to cold water midway through your shower) can actually do the trick as well. This is because warm water makes the blood come to the surface, while cold water makes the blood shift to your tissue and organs. Cold water can also help with inflammation.

Flushes out Toxins

Cold water can also help you fight against contracting certain illnesses and viruses in more ways than one. The first is the fact that cold water encourages your muscles to contract—this alone (with the added addition of improved circulation) helps flush out unwanted toxins that make you sick. But according to some experts, cold showers can also help your body build virus-fighting white blood cells. This is because cold water forces your body to go into “shock”—this in turn causes your immune system to work in over drive as it attempts to warm back up

Fights Mental Disorders

Some experts also say that not only can cold showers help boost your body’s defenses and help with circulation, but it can also help prevent depression. This is because according to research, cold water helps stimulate natural endorphins (chemical that make you happy) and helps activate a part of the brain that produces norepinephrine (sometimes referred to as noradrenaline) – an ingredient found in most anti-depression medication.

Gives Skin and Hair a Healthy Glow/Shine

Cold water can even help you improve acne prone skin and make your hair glossy. The reason is simple—cold water closes your pores and seals hair cuticles so that dirt and dull-causing agents cannot seep into your skin or hair. Do note that you should in fact use warm water to open your pores to first remove dirt and oil, but then splash cold water on your face and hair to seal your pores and cuticles back up.

Boosts Energy

As you may have guessed, cold showers can also help you shake off any lethargy and is the perfect solution if you are ever dragging your feet in the morning. This is because the same cold shock that helps your body wash away toxins also sets your nervous central system to ignite and make your heart race—this feeling will perk you up in a moment’s notice and unlike when drinking a cup of coffee, the feeling is not short lived.

9 Steps to Achieving a Healthy Lifestyle

healthy_lifestyleBy Michelle Jones-Nelson

Think you’re leading a healthy lifestyle? Aside from occasionally veering off the path, most of us think we do a fair job of maintaining our health with good (or at least OK) eating habits and physical activity whenever we manage to fit it in. But is that enough to be considered “healthy?”

According to a recent study, very few adults actually meet the criteria for a healthy lifestyle. The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, showed that only 3% of American adults got a perfect score on what the authors say are the four basic criteria for healthy living. Just 13.8% met three of the criteria; 34.2% met only two criteria. Women scored slightly better than men.

While those four habits are indisputably important for a healthy lifestyle, some may argue that more factors should be taken into consideration. What would be on your list?

Just for fun, I came up with my own personal top 10 list of healthy behaviors (beyond the four basics) that contribute to wellness and satisfaction with one’s lifestyle:

  1. • Brush and floss daily to keep your teeth and gums healthy and free of disease. 
  2. • Get a good night’s rest. Well-rested people not only cope better with stress, but may also have better control of their appetites. Research has shown that a lack of sleep can put our “hunger hormones” out of balance — and possibly trigger overeating. 
  3. • Enjoy regular family meals. This allows parents to serve as good role models, can promote more nutritious eating, and sets the stage for lively conversations. Being connected to family and/or friends is a powerful aspect of a healthy life. 
  4. • Smile and laugh out loud several times a day. It keeps you grounded, and helps you cope with situations that would otherwise make you crazy. Read the comics, watch a sitcom, or tell jokes to bring out those happy feelings. 
  5. • Meditate, pray, or otherwise find solace for at least 10-20 minutes each day. Contemplation is good for your soul, helps you cope with the demands of daily life, and may even help lower your blood pressure. 
  6. • Get a pedometer and let it motivate you to walk, walk, walk. Forget about how many minutes of activity you need; just do everything you can to fit more steps into your day. No matter how you get it, physical activity can help defuse stress, burn calories, and boost self-esteem. 
  7. • Stand up straight. You’ll look 5 pounds lighter if you stand tall and tighten your abdominal muscles. Whenever you walk, think “tall and tight” to get the most out of the movement. 
  8. • Try yoga. The poses help increase strength and flexibility and improve balance. These are critical areas for older folks especially, and both men and women can benefit. 
  9. • Last but not least, have a positive attitude. Do your best to look at life as if “the glass is half full.” You must believe in yourself, have good support systems, and think positively (“I think I can, I think I can?”) to succeed.


It’s All about You
Your list of healthy lifestyle behaviors may be different from mine. The most important thing to remember is that you can make a difference in your health and well-being. Take charge of your life, and be mindful of small behavior changes that can make your lifestyle a
healthier one.

5 Easy Ways to Improve Digestion

digestionBy Jordan & Kyla Miller, –  Wake Up World

Our digestive system is connected to most, if not all of our bodily functions. For this reason, optimal digestion is vitally important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, due to the unwholesome foods we eat, the contaminated water we drink, and the polluted air we breathe, our digestive systems are loaded down with toxins, chemicals and unfriendly bacteria. Some researchers have even suggested that digestive disorders are the principle underlying cause of many unexplained symptoms and diseases. It is therefore easy to see the importance of the digestive system and doing everything we can to support it. Here are 5 easily ways to improve digestion and assimilation naturally.

  

1. Chew your food

This is one of the easiest and most simple ways to improve digestion. However, it’s a practice that many of us often forget. We lead busy lives and most of us are lucky if we can sit down and eat our dinner. If we want to improve our digestion, we need to invest the time. When we eat, it is important to be relaxed and comfortable. We need to take the time to chew our food thoroughly. Food should be paste like before it is swallowed. If we swallow chucks of food, our digestive system is forced to work harder in breaking it down. Furthermore, we run the risk of food rotting in our digestive tract, causing gas, bloating and discomfort. In some cases, it may not be possible to breakdown the food, and this means that the nutrients in the food are not able to be absorbed into the bloodstream. On the other hand, if we thoroughly chew our food, it allows our stomach and small intestine to work efficiently in breaking down the food further into assimilable nutrients.

2. Don’t drink with meals

This is another important practice to get used to. When we drink with our meal, even if it is water, it dilutes our digestive juices and slows down the digestive process. It is understandable that some foods make us thirsty. In this case, it is OK to drink water with our meal; however we should only be taking sips, not gulping the water down. Additionally, beverages should always be room temperature. Cold water will stall digestion.

3. Increase your intake of enzymes

There are three main categories of enzymes. There are metabolic, digestive and food enzymes. Metabolic enzymes are required for growth, repair, maintenance, and detoxification which are produced by the body. Digestive enzymes break down food into small particles, small enough to pass through the cell membranes lining the digestive tract and into the blood stream. They are typically secreted along the digestive tract, however if one has issues

with digestion, they may not be secreting enough. In this case, it is advisable to take a digestive enzyme complex with each meal. The most important digestive enzymes are protease (breaks down protein), amylase (breaks down starch), and lipase (breaks down fat). Food enzymes, like digestive enzymes, enable the body to digest food by breaking down various nutrients into their smaller particles. They are derived from raw fruits and vegetables. This is why a diet high in raw fruits and vegetables is key to optimal digestion and therefore, optimal health.

4. Get your fiber

Dietary fiber is a carbohydrate that the body cannot digest or absorb. However, it plays a vital role in digestive health. As fiber moves waste through the digestive tract, it pushing food out and various toxins along with it. There are two classifications of fiber: insoluble which cannot be dissolved in water and soluble which can be dissolved. Found mostly in plant sources like fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes, fiber is essential for maintaining health and plays an important role in the digestive process.

5. Practice food combining

Different types of foods require different digestive secretions and take different lengths of time to digest. For example, protein can take 4-6 hours to digest, while fruit takes approximately 15 minutes. If we eat the two together, the fruit is left sitting in the digestive tract to rot while it waits for the protein to be digested. This can cause excessive gas, bloating and discomfort. Although food combining may not be the easiest way to improve digestion, it is certainly one of the most effective. (Note: Food combining is not for those with sugar imbalances. In order to balance blood sugar, a diet of balance macronutrients is vital)

An optimally functioning digestive system can do wonders for our over health and sense of well-being
