Uterine Fibroids and vaginal infections

Uterine Fibroids and vaginal infections

Many women have encountered some sort of vaginal yeast infection or even battled with a case of uterine fibroids.  For the yeast infection; a fungus called candida which is also a natural resident in the intestines and vagina, an area that shouldn’t be imbalanced, but if so, can lead to discharge, itching, swelling, to your general discomfort.  Most cases of yeast infections have increased due to antibiotics which destroy beneficial natural flora found in the vagina and allow more harmful bacteria or yeast to multiply.  Trichomoniasis is another common vaginal infection as is chlamydia which can be passed to a baby during childbirth and cause blindness.

Making Homegrown Medicinals

Preparedness – Homegrown Medicinals

Homegrown Medicinals @ Common Sense Homesteading

While I’m out working in the garden, I’m not just tending standard food crops, I’m also tending herbs and “weeds”.  Some I use for culinary purposes, some for medicinal, some for both.  (Don’t you love it when you can get multiple uses from one item?)  With many medicinal herbs now being outlawed in Europe, and increasing odds that the US is likely to follow Europe’s lead (thank you, Big Pharma), I’ve been learning more about plants that I can grow in my own yard for medicinal purposes.  You’d be surprised at how useful “weeds” can be.

I dry an assortment of plants over the course of the season.  Most of them live in my pantry in glass jars covered with my husband’s old mismatched dress socks to keep out the light.  I cut each sock in half so it can cover two jars.  The socks are elasticized so they grip the jars nicely.  I always hated throwing one sock out when the other got worn through – now I have a use for them.  The food in front of them is kept in bins that can be easily pulled out to access the herbs.  You can see part of a bin on the right hand side of the photo.

Could moringa be the best beauty-boosting superfood?
What you eat shows on your face and this superfood promises superskin thanks to its anti-ageing, sun damage defending AND eczema and acne relieving powers.

By Bridget March
Moringa powder

We are big believers that healthy hair, skin and nails show from the inside out and one of the easiest ways to boost what nature gave you is with your diet and we’ve found a superfood to slip into our smoothies that offers innumerable beauty benefits.

Yep, move over blueberries, chia seeds and spirulina and make space for moringa, harnessed as a powder from the leaves of the native African and Asian ‘Miracle Tree’, celebrated for its medicinal properties.

Moringa’s nutritional profile reads like a health nut’s wish-list. We spoke to one of the UK’s leading facialists and Cosmo Beauty Awards 2014 judge, Abigail James to understand what its mega antioxidant levels, vitamins and minerals mean for skin.

Vitamin A
“This is absolutely key to anti-aging, healthy cell turnover and skin health”

Vitamin E
“Essential for retaining moisture and protecting against free radical damage, so it’s ideal to take as a regular daily supplement as a sun damage preventer”

B3 Niacin
“Key for the skins healthy barrier protection, keeping moisture in and irritants out. It’s been known to be helpful in the treatment of sensitive skins and rosacea, and also help minimise dark spots”

B2 Riboflavin
“Essential for normal healthy cell growth and repair, it’s healing and helps reduce scaring in the skin. Also known to be good for eczema conditions”

Zinc
“Essential in wound healing and healthy cell renewal, a key aspect nutritionally for acne sufferers who are often deficient in this”

Sprouting Garlic

Great! Love this~

Aquaberry Bliss

Garlic is a magical plant. The cloves have antibacterial and healing properties and add a fragrant zing to every food item. Here is how you can grow garlic yourself, starting by sprouting it indoors.

Sprouting Garlic

Garlic can be grown using the cloves you already have in your kitchen! I sprouted my garlic indoors using cloves from a bulb I had inside my fridge. Garlic sprouts faster when kept at colder temperatures so place it in the fridge 1-2 weeks before you want to start growing it.

COFFEE – 3 Tricks to Make Yours Super-Healthy

COFFEE – 3 Tricks to Make Yours Super-Healthy
3-Tricks-to-Make-Your-Coffee-Super-Healthy

coffee can be healthyMmm, coffee… almost everybody drinks it… some people have 3-4 cups per day or more.

But most people don’t think of it as a “health drink”.  And it’s certainly NOT healthy the way most people make it with loads of added sugar or artificial sweeteners and artificial creamers.

But I’ll give you my tips here on how I make a healthier cup of coffee and what to watch out for…

First, you may have seen debate in the past about how coffee has some compounds in it that could have negative health effects such as small amounts of acrylamides or other possibly harmful compounds in brewed coffee.  But, the good news is that coffee has such high concentrations of beneficial antioxidants, phenolic nutrients, chlorogenic acids, and other healthy compounds, that it more than counteracts any bad compounds.

In fact, coffee provides the biggest source of antioxidants for most Americans… although that mostly has to do with the fact that many Americans don’t get enough antioxidants from fruits and veggies, so coffee ends up being their biggest source.  You should try to diversify your sources of antioxidants from fruits, veggies, spices, herbs, berries, beans, unsweetened organic cocoa, teas, and yes, even coffee if you like it.
