6 Easy Tips for Beautiful Hair

Watch your diet-
Your diet plays a vital role in determining both-how you feel and look. A healthy diet devoid of processed foods, coupled with moderate exercise can literally make your skin and hair glow from within! Experts recommend adding more Vitamin A and Vitamin E rich foods to the diet to promote hair health.

Drink up!
Water makes up for around 70 percent of your body, and deprived of this vital substance, you can start to look and feel no-so-good. Make sure you drink at least 7-8 glasses of water a day; it’ll help nourish and keep your hair looking healthy.

Skip the blow-dry-
Blow drying, among other heat treatments can strip your hair of its natural moisture, making it look dull, dry and frizzy. Avoid using extensive hair treatments as far as possible, and if you must, make sure to compensate with good hair care afterward.

Use home remedies-
For different hair problems like dandruff, itchiness, hair fall etc, stick to using home remedies. As opposed to chemical-based products, home remedies work better and don’t lead to scalp or hair damage.

Dry hair needs oil-
Mom was right; even the most highly regarded beauty experts today consider moisturizing the most crucial step of hair care; and oil does it best! A 20-minute warm oil massage is excellent for dry, rough and frizzy hair. It moisturizes the hair and the scalp, unlike damaging it like other store-bought conditioners.

Be Gentle with Wet Hair-
You must be careful when dealing with wet hair. Wet hair is very fragile and can break easily. When your hair gets wet, the shaft and roots of your hair are more prone to sustaining damage.
Some practical tips when dealing with wet hair are: don’t be too rough when you are putting shampoo and conditioner in your hair. Don’t immediately brush your hair after you get out of the shower, give your hair some time to dry. Finally, if you are looking to straighten your hair with a flat iron, never use the flat iron on wet hair. Always blow dry your hair first, and then straighten it.

Natural Cures for Indigestion and Heartburn

By Jenny McLarthan

When I think of Indigestion, Heartburn and nausea, the popular ad
campaign for Pepto Bismol with the dancing symptoms starts playing
in my head. Then the pink chalky residue comes to mind, ew. So what
is a natural health girl to do when she has a stomach ache? Consult
the herbalists and Alternative Medicine gurus, of course.

The main symptoms of Indigestion include abdominal pain, a burning
feeling in the upper abdomen, nausea, Heartburn, Bloating, Belching,
vomiting and Flatulence. Sounds like a good time, eh? Please do
consult with your Alternative Medicine practitioner if you have a
chronic problem, but if it is just the occasional malady, here are a
few Natural Remedies that may help:

Indigestion Prevention – Drink a mixture of one teaspoon Ginger and
two tablespoons baking soda in cold water before eating to avoid
Indigestion altogether.

Bananas – Ripe bananas are actually natural antacids that help to
soothe the lining of your stomach. I guess that is why pediatricians
often recommend them when the little ones are not feeling well.
Cider Vinegar or Lemon Juice – Add either of these to hot water and
drink to alkalize the acid in your stomach if you do not have a
banana handy.

Tea – The following Teas are excellent for indigestion: Ginger,
Peppermint, Fennel, Lemon Balm, Cinnamon, Slippery Elm powder.
Why water=bad with a meal – Yes, the glass is on the table at
dinner, but you shouldn’t drink while eating according to experts.
Water can dilute the gastric acid in your stomach which causes
Indigestion.

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.
