The Seven natural antibiotics.

1. Garlic

Cultures across the world have long recognized garlic for its preventive and curative powers.

Research has found that garlic can be an effective treatment against many forms of bacteria, including Salmonella and Escherichia coli (E. coli). Garlic has even been considered for use against multi-drug resistant tuberculosis.

2. Honey

Since the time of Aristotle, honey has been used as an ointment that helps wounds to heal and prevents or draws out infection.

Healthcare professionals today have found it helpful in treating chronic wounds, burns, ulcers, bedsores, and skin grafts. For example, results of a study from 2016 demonstrate that honey dressings can help to heal wounds.

The antibacterial effects of honey are usually attributed to its hydrogen peroxide content. However, manuka honey fights off bacteria, though it has a lower hydrogen peroxide content.

A 2011 study reported that the best-known type of honey inhibits approximately 60 kinds of bacteria. It also suggests that honey successfully treats wounds infected with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Antibacterial properties aside, honey may help wounds to heal by providing a protective coating that fosters a moist environment.

  1. Ginger

The scientific community also recognizes ginger as a natural antibiotic. Several studies, including one published in 2017, have demonstrated ginger’s ability to fight many strains of bacteria.

Researchers are also exploring ginger’s power to combat seasickness and nausea and to lower blood sugar levels.

 

4. Echinacea

Echinacea has been used to treat infections for many years.

Native American and other traditional healers have used echinacea for hundreds of years to treat infections and wounds. Researchers are beginning to understand why.

A study published in the Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology reports that extract of Echinacea purpurea can kill many different kinds of bacteria, including Streptococcus pyogenes (S. pyogenes).

  1. pyogenes is responsible for strep throat, toxic shock syndrome, and the “flesh-eating disease” known as necrotizing fasciitis.

Echinacea may also fight inflammation associated with bacterial infection.

5. Goldenseal

Goldenseal is usually consumed in tea or capsules to treat respiratory and digestive problems. However, it may also combat bacterial diarrhea and urinary tract infections.

In addition, results of a recent study support the use of goldenseal to treat skin infections. In a lab, goldenseal extracts were used to prevent MRSA from damaging tissue.

A person taking prescription medications should check with a doctor before taking goldenseal, as this supplement can cause interference.

Goldenseal also contains berberine, an important component of natural antibiotics. This alkaloid is not safe for infants, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

6. Clove

Clove has traditionally been used in dental procedures. Research is now finding that clove water extract may be effective against many different kinds of bacteria, including E. coli.

 

 

7. Oregano

Some believe that oregano boosts the immune system and acts as an antioxidant. It may have anti-inflammatory properties.

While researchers have yet to verify these claims, some studies show that oregano is among the more effective natural antibiotics, particularly when it is made it into an oil.

Risks of natural antibiotics

While cooked garlic is usually safe to consume, research suggests that taking concentrated garlic may increase the risk of bleeding. This can be dangerous for people facing surgery or taking blood thinners.

Garlic concentrates may also reduce the usefulness of HIV medications.

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/321108.php?srAntibiotics may be prescribed to speed recovery from illness or to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

 Lemon and honey – our ‘go-to’ remedy , for colds, a home-made hot drink with fresh lemon juice and honey was the most popular choice, with a staggering 62 percent citing it as one of their ‘go-to’ drinks,   based on getting vitamin C from lemon, and the antibacterial/antimicrobial elements of honey,”  

Ginger was cited by 23 percent  as an effective method to soothe a sore throat. Indeed, ginger has been shown to reduce pain.

Colds and flu share many of the same symptoms; the major difference being flu is often worse, and accompanied by a high fever. The extreme fatigue associated with flu can persist for weeks. Cold symptoms are generally milder and last about 1 week. Also, runny nose or nasal congestion is more common with cold than flu.

Over-the-counter medications – these can reduce fever. Tylenol can help people with flu feel more comfortable while they recover.Saline nose drops can help relieve a blocked nose.Vapor rubs can make it easier to breathe.Gargling with salt water or sucking on a lozenge can ease the pain of a sore throat.

 

Health Benefits of Saffron

Boosts Immunity

Although people often think of spices as nothing but food flavoring tools, they still contain high concentrations of certain important nutrients, including vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is important for human health, as it stimulates the immune system’s production [3] of white blood cells, the body’s first line of defense against illness. It is also crucial to the production of collagen, which is necessary for cellular production in the body and contributes to wound healing, muscle growth, blood vessel repair, and tissue production.

Increases Circulation

Saffron can function as an effective energy booster and can increase your metabolism by increasing your blood circulation. The high concentration [4] of iron means that saffron increases your RBCs, which thereby stimulates circulation and the oxygenation of organ systems and the body’s extremities. This improves efficiency and functionality of the tissues and organ systems for healthier metabolic activity and also prevents the symptoms of anemia.

Protects Heart Health

Improving the health of the heart seems to be one of the top goals in human health today, and one simple way to do this is to increase your potassium intake [5]. Potassium acts as a vasodilator, effectively lowering the stress and pressure on blood vessels and arteries, allowing blood pressure to decrease and relieving strain on the cardiovascular system. This can prevent things like atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes from occurring.

Controls Diabetes

The significant levels of manganese can help the body optimize its blood sugar levels. Diabetes is one of the most dangerous and widespread conditions in our world today, affecting millions of people globally. By regulating [6] your blood sugar, insulin, and glucose levels, you can effectively prevent the onset of type II diabetes or manage the symptoms if you already suffer from this affliction.

 

Relieves Anxiety

Saffron has been known to relieve [7] mild depression and improve mood in those who regularly consume it. The many active compounds in saffron have some effect on the endocrine system and can stimulate the release of beneficial hormones that keep us happy and healthy. For women, this same effect has also been known to act as an aphrodisiac. It has been hailed as a natural antidepressant by numerous research studies and organizations.

Improves Bone Strength

Some of the minerals and organic compounds in saffron have been linked to optimized nutrient uptake, particularly of calcium. By maximizing the amount [8] of calcium that our body can absorb from food, we have a better chance of improving bone mineral density and preventing the onset of conditions like osteoporosis and other degenerative age-related diseases.

Analgesic Qualities

Pain relief is always a valuable property of an herb or a natural remedy, and the volatile compound safranal in saffron acts as a sedative for many patients. This sedative action can help [10] relieve pain, reduce anxiety and stress, improve sleep patterns, and generally soothe the mind and body, which is always a good thing!

Reduces Stomach Disorders

One of the oldest and most well-known uses of saffron is for upset stomachs and excess flatulence. The sedative and anti-inflammatory nature of saffron helps [12] calm the stomach and reduce inflammation, which eases things like constipation, bloating, cramping, and other serious conditions like gastric ulcers.

Treats Inflammation

As a topical tool used in massage, saffron oil and creams derived from the flower’s compounds can eliminate aches and pains throughout the body, while also relieving pain and discomfort. For people suffering from sports injuries, arthritis, gout, and other inflammatory conditions [13], this is a wonderful remedy. Also, for the topical healing of bruises and wounds, the quick-acting antioxidants in saffron can help speed the healing process.

Saffron for your eyes

Vision reaches a degeneration level with age, which may cause blindness (macular degeneration). The light retinas of the eye begin to break down with age. Saffron promotes a long-term improvement in eyesight. It improves visual acuity and light sensitivity, even in those who have macular degeneration at an early stage. Clearly, this is an eye–opener to see the light of Saffron.

Word of Caution: Consuming saffron in high doses can be potentially dangerous, as the high concentration of active ingredients can have a range of effects on the body. However, in small doses (such as in meals or in pill supplement form), saffron is not known to have any common side effects or allergenic properties.

Diabetes, a long-term condition causing high blood sugar level has following common symptoms:
Frequent urination, intense thirst and hunger, weight gain, unusual weight loss, fatigue, cuts and bruises that do not heal, male sexual dysfunction, numbness and tingling in hands and feet. Diabetes if not treated well can lead to Glaucoma/ loss of sight, Gangrene, skin disorders, heart problem, hypertension, hearing problem, gum diseases, wound healing takes longer etc.

Turmeric

Turmeric demonstrates anti-inflammatory property Study in humans shows that curcumin works an antioxidant and reduces oxidative stress and heart risk in diabetes.   Curcuminoids found in turmeric functions as an anti-hyperglycemic agent- it lowers elevated blood sugar in diabetes.   Curcumin is a natural wound healing agent and speeds up wound healing process. Even topical application of curcumin benefits in skin wounds.Curcumin is a natural painkiller. Primarily turmeric reduces blood sugar, improves insulin sensitivity and improves metabolic health in diabetes. It helps manage diabetes effectively  At a dose of 1 teaspoon o  2-3 times a day benefits should be evidenced within 1-2 weeks. Including turmeric in diet and cooking is the best way to start taking turmeric. You could add it to soups, sprinkle it over salads, add it to juices.  I am including turmeric in my food and I am also drinking the turmeric tea. I must say I am very happy with the results. I am diabetic and I take Metforman 500 tablets twice a day.

Generally as a precaution it is advised not to take turmeric with anti-diabetes medication. This is because both curcumin as well as anti-diabetes medication reduce blood sugar levels so it is thought that taking the two together could cause abnormally low blood sugar levels and there are chances of drug interaction.

Effects noted of cinnamon, cardamom, saffron and ginger consumption on blood pressure and  type 2 diabetes  

 

Ginger benefits for diabetes

Ginger provide lots of benefits of health and based on some studies, ginger also has some beneficial effect in diabetes patient, below are the list that you can check :

  1. Keeping blood sugar level

Some studies conducted in Iran reported that certain phytochemicals contained in ginger such as gingerol and other component can lower the blood sugar level. Study which conducted in more than 30 days with some diabetes patients shows that after therapeutic treatment with ginger, they experienced lower blood sugar level and this lead to maintain normal blood sugar level. The effect of ginger in lowering blood sugar level is may conducted with the inhibition of hepatic phosphorylase which known as an enzyme that break down glycogen ( glucose storage molecule ) into glucose. If glycogen break down into glucose, blood sugar level in the body will also rise.

  1. Improve glucose tolerance

Mechanism of keeping blood sugar in diabetes patient has been studied by some researches and they found the phytochemical brought by ginger facilitated the glucose metabolism and improve glucose tolerance in the body. A study by James W Daily et al which published in Journal of Ethnic Food reported that ginger supplementation is efficient to improve the glucose tolerance in diabetes people especially those with type 2 diabetes.

  1. Reduce insulin resistance

A study by Iranian researchers from University of Medical Sciences, Yazd, Iran which published in Journal National Library of medicine reported that ginger supplementation can reduce insulin resistance level by 10,5 %. It is also suggested by those scientist that diabetes people better consume about 3 g of ginger supplement everyday for 8 weeks more to get the benefits.

  1. Increase the secretion of insulin

According to a study which published in European Journal of Pharmacology, scientist has found that ginger extract can increase the level of insulin secretion by interact with serotonin receptor. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in brain which play important role in promoting pancreatic cells to produce insulin.

  1. Reduce lipid profile

Ginger suplementation also can reduce the level of several kind of fat such as triglycerid acid, cholesterol and LDL ( Low density lipoprotein ). Better lipid profile show better health condition and prevent diabetes people to develop complication.

  1. Decrease oxidative stress

Oxidative stress is a term which refer to the imbalance level of free radicals with the ability of the body to get rid their bad effect from the body. Oxidative stress may trigger development of complication in diabetes people. Ginger contains various phytochemical which act as antioxidant that can fight free radical and protect the body from free radical.

  1. Increase hemoglobin level

It is also reported that ginger supplementation can increase level of hemoglobin in diabetes people. Hemoglobin play important role in oxygen and nutrient transport including sugar. The high level of hemoglobin allow the body to deliver better nutrition and prevent from lacking sugar as energy building block. When the body lack of sugar, glycogen will be broken to provide glucose and increase blood sugar level.

  1. Improve liver function

People with diabetes has greater risk of developing nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease is a condition where some excessive fat attach to liver and bother liver function. It may also causing other serious health problem such as cirrhosis. Study has proved that consumin ginger extract can keep healthy liver and reduce the risk of developing fatty liver.

  1. Improve kidney function

High sugar blood level can increase the risk of nerve, blood vessel and other organ damage including kidney. High blood sugar level in diabetes make the kidney work harder and even may cause glomeroli or kidney filter damage and lead to kidney failure. Ginger has potential effect to lower blood sugar level and keep healthy kidney.

 

  1. Reduce inflammation

Diabetes is usually suffered by obese people and fat cells in their body will trigger the production of chemical which promote inflammation. Ginger contain anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce inflammation that occur in the body especially in people with diabetes type 2.

  1. Protect from cataract

People with diabetes have high risk to develop cataract. Cataract is a condition which the lens of the eye become blurred, opaque or unclear. Human eyes get energy of sugar from Aqueous Humor and people with diabetes have no ability to control the sugar or glucose level in Aqueous Humor. This condition may cause excessive accumulation of sugar inside eyes which lead to cataract. According to a study   ginger supplementation can help to delay the development of cataract.

Health risk of ginger

Ginger has lots of benefits for health but consuming excessive ginger is not recommended. Ginger can reduce the blood sugar level but consuming high amount of ginger may cause very low level of sugar in blood and it can make the body weak, dizzy and even fainting. Before consuming ginger as diabetic supplement, it is better to consult the doctor first.

Those are the benefits of ginger for people who suffer diabetes. Make sure you purchase fresh ginger if you want to consume it as food seasoning or choose only best ginger powder to make ginger tea. Having herbal medication to treat diabetes is another safety way to increase your health.

Ginger also interacts with herbs that stimulate blood flow and slow blood clotting, which includes clove, garlic, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, turmeric, angelica. Combining ginger with these herbs could increase your risk of bleeding. Eating too much ginger root can cause heartburn, diarrhea and mouth irritation. You may also experience belching, upset stomach, a bad taste in the mouth, bloating, gas and nausea.If you suffer from high blood pressure or diabetes and take medications for your condition, ginger is known to change the way the drugs you need react with your body. Specifically, beta-blockers, anticoagulants, and insulin drugs can be very dangerous to mix with ginger. ginger when consumed in reasonable quantities has few negative side effects and is on the FDA’s “generally recognized as safe” list.   An Alternative for Ginger  There are many alternatives that nutritionists recommend such as cayenne pepper, red paprika, and sweet peppers. They can be added to dishes and beverages to add that kick of spice to your taste  buds.

 

Review

  • Turmeric: Give yourself an immunity boost with the anti-inflammatory action of turmeric.  In one small study, it even outperformed a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug when used on patients with rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory joint condition.  The curcumin in turmeric is responsible for its anti-inflammatory properties and can help suppress and inhibit inflammatory pathways. Turmeric can help cleanse the blood in those dealing with inflammation in the liver or kidney.

 

  • Chili Peppers: You could tap the anti-inflammatory action of the capsaicin in a chili pepper to battle inflammatory diseases. So if you’re looking at alternative ways to ward off heart disease, obesity, or other diseases where inflammation plays a role, reach for that chili pepper. Researchers are even exploring its potential in battling certain cancers like that of the prostate.

 

  • Cinnamon: Cinnamon is packed with anti-inflammatory compounds like quercetin.  Which is why this warm, sweet spice can fight inflammation and neurological disorders like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease that have an association with inflammatory processes in the body.

 

  • Ginger: If you suffer from inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or obesity, you could benefit from having ginger. The spice has broad anti-inflammatory actions against a range of such conditions. Ginger Against Migraines And Cluster Headaches: If you have a migraine or cluster headache problem and don’t want to constantly pop migraine medication, ginger powder can work as a natural alternative. Research has found it can act as quickly as within two hours of consumption  Ginger is very suitable for those with a high level of blood sugar (including diabetics who manage the disease without medication), due to its natural propensity to lower one’s blood sugar levels. However, for those who are taking medication for diabetes – for example, Metformim or insulin injections – this could undermine the effectiveness of the doctor’s prescription. As a good rule of thumb, think of a tablespoon of fresh ginger root as equal to a 1/4 teaspoon of dried ground ginger

 

.  Cloves: Due to its antibacterial action against oral bacteria, clove oil is used in products like dental creams and toothpastes as well as oils to protect against dental caries and periodontal disease. It also has antiseptic and analgesic properties, helping soothe the pain associated with inflammation and infection.  It can also ease gum disease (gingivitis) and do away with the associated bad breath. Simply mix with a carrier oil and apply as a topical treatment.

Now there is a completely safe and highly effective natural way to keep insects at bay, and its results are far better than the effects of DEET- lemon eucalyptus oil

The pink Himalayan salt has a myriad of healthy medicinal properties, being rich in 84 minerals and trace elements. It can be used as a replacement of the processed table salt, as a bath soak or body scrub, or as pink Himalayan salt lamps. Yet, you might not know that you can use it as a salt inhaler and enjoy its numerous health benefits These salt inhalers have small Himalayan salt rocks at the bottom, and when you inhale, the natural moisture of the air helps absorb the salt particles into the lungs. This is highly beneficial in the case of colds, congestion, allergies, and asthma. The method is completely safe and natural, and thus causes no side-effects.

Have you ever heard of the restless leg syndrome? This common medical condition affects about 50% of the population, and it is characterized by leg cramps during the night. It is actually a neurological disorder that causes discomfort in the leg while resting, and is also known as “Charley’s horses”.The pain is additionally aggravated if you move the leg while cramping. These craps are most commonly a result of dehydration, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, and excessive exercise. Yet, it can also be caused by pregnancy, alcohol abuse, diabetes, and kidney failure. Apparently, placing a bar of soap under the sheets by sleeping can relieve this disorder!

Numerous people find it difficult to distinguish baking powder and baking soda, but these two ingredients do not share the same chemical composition, so here is how to make the difference:

Baking soda

The reaction of baking soda or bicarbonate of soda or sodium bicarbonate with acidic ingredients releases carbon dioxide. When cooking, you need an acidic ingredient such as lemon juice, molasses, cream of tartar, yogurt, buttermilk, or brown sugar.

It is stronger than baking powder, and it gives a metallic taste if it is not neutralized. Note that you should add a quarter teaspoon of baking soda per every cup of flour.

Baking powder

Baking powder contains cornstarch, baking soda, and cream of tartar. When cooking, the first leavening occurs when the powder gets wet, and the other when it is heated. Also, make sure you add a teaspoon of it per every cup of flour.

Moreover, some recipes are much better if you use both of these, baking powder and baking soda, but you need to find the perfect balance since carbon dioxide from baking soda and acids might influence the volume after the leavening.

Also, baking soda and baking powder have expiration dates, so you should always use them fresh.

Macular eye degeneration

Macular eye degeneration

Use Pressed Garlic to Reverse Vision Loss

Mode of consumption

  • To obtain these benefits from daily garlic consumption, one or two cloves is recommended.
  • You should always eat it raw, because when you cook garlic it loses up to 90% of its benefits.
  • You can also combine it with a little lemon juice and olive oil.

How often should you add this to your diet? Now that you know how good it can be for your vision, stop making excuses and try it on a regular basis.

 You’ll need a kitchen utensil known as a garlic press, which is designed to crush a clove of garlic by pressing it through a series of small holes. It has a small lever that serves to press the clove into a thick paste.

A healthy diet, regular physical activity, drinking enough water, reducing stress and getting enough sleep are all beneficial for regulating blood pressure, normalizing blood sugar levels to prevent nerve damage and supporting heart health.

The best foods for preventing and reversing macular degeneration are green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits (especially all yellow and orange colored fruits and vegetables), fish and whole grains.

Eggs are a good source of Lutein so eat plenty of eggs with bright yellow yolks.

Eat 2-3 tablespoons of cooked spinach every day.

Also eat carrots, broccoli and kale.

Foods to avoid for macular degeneration are refined grains, processed foods, refined sugar and sugary drinks etc.

Key raw foods to include in the diet are:

* Sprouts

* Raw vegetables

* Raw cultured vegetable be

* sauerkraut

* Avocados

* Presoaked Seeds and Nuts

* Sprouted legumes (bean sprouts, sprouted chickpeas)

* Sprouted grains (wheat and rye berries)

* Seaweed also called sea greens or sea vegetables

* meats should be consumed.

* fish. Fish to be consumed would include Wild Alaskan Salmon and small body fish such as sardines.

* Raw carrots

* Brussel sprouts

* Raw spinach

* Corn

* Broccoli

* Green peas

* Green beans

  • Tomatoes

* Leaf greens

* olive oil, flax seed, sesame, sunflower,

* safflower, almond oils and grape seed oil

Dehydration also is a major contributor to chronic disease.

The Indian spice that could save your eyesight,  that reverses and prevents age-related vision loss is saffron

To stop age-related vision loss and make your eyes as healthy as possible, you need to get at least 20 mg per day of saffron. There are two options for using this powerful orange miracle. You can cook with it and if you love curries, this is a great choice.  Or, you can take a saffron extract supplement. They are widely available and easy to find.Since saffron is a very expensive spice, for most people, taking the supplement will be the best option. after a year or more ingesting only 20 mg (milligrams) of saffron daily, vision improvements should stabilize without requiring more saffron dosing. Saffron is the world’s most expensive spice, stemming from the dried orange-red stigmas of the Crocus sativus flower. Boil a pinch in tea for a delicious refreshing hot drink, add to smoothies and all other recipes I’d suggest you visit an East Indian store. Bought the Spanish saffron this week. It is around $7 something for 2g. Remember, the redder in colour the higher the quality.    The crop with tiny leaves and purple buds does not flaunt its treasure. But hidden at the centre of the flowers are pistils, each containing three red stigmas which, when dried, make the pricey seasoning saffron.

Avoid eating margarine.

Sunflower seeds=Selenium which is found abundantly in sunflower seeds is known to prevent cataracts and also protect overall eye health. Eat a handful of sunflower seeds every day.

Essential oils: Frankincense essential oil has been demonstrated to improve eyesight, helichrysum oil improves vision and supports nerve tissue, and cypress essential oil improves circulation. Apply three drops of any of these essential oils twice daily on the cheeks and lateral eye area (next to the eyes), but be very careful not to put oils directly into the eyes.

Coconut oil – Coconut oil may prevent progression of wet and dry macular degeneration. Take a couple of tablespoons of the oil daily in your diet. You can also use it to massage gently around the eyes.

Foods to improve blood circulation in the body

health

There are also a number of brilliant herbs which have been shown to have a great effect at improving circulation.The four main herbs which have been proven to have a positive effect include cayenne, garlic, ginkgo biloba and ginger.

Some of the simple dietary changes that you can make include adding more fibre to your diet. Try eating more fruit and vegetables each day. Another thing you can do is to drink more fresh water at least 5 or 6 glasses.

Exercise for a myriad of benefits, including weight loss and better circulation. Just like the muscles in your body, your cardiovascular system needs to be exercised to stay strong. When you exercise with your legs, such as walking or using a leg machine, blood pumps to the ankles, calves and feet to help support the movement of the muscles used. This in turn helps to improve circulation and improve your weight, which acts as a marker for poor circulation issues.

Citrus fruits contain high amounts of vitamin C that helps strengthen capillary walls and also acts as a natural blood thinner, promoting smooth circulation. Goji berries, which look like raisins, are known for improving blood circulation due to their high fiber content. Watermelon is rich in lycopene, which has been linked to improved circulation

Dark chocolate. This type of chocolate contains a high amount of cocoa, which is known for improving blood flow. Studies have shown that dark chocolate can improve blood flow in the legs by affecting chemicals in the body that help widen arteries.

Dry skin brushing This involves vigorously brushing the skin with a dry brush. The removal of dead skin cells is thought to help improve blood circulation. The act of brushing will stimulate your skin promoting blood flow to it, as well as promote the elimination of metabolic waste

Walnuts and raw almonds have been found to help improve blood flow. Several types of nuts are high in vitamin A, B, C, and E, as well as magnesium and iron. Each of these nutrients helps contribute to better blood circulation.

Turmeric is a wonderful spice that can help improve blood circulation. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, helps prevent blood platelets from forming clots and reduces plaque buildup in the arteries. Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and a little honey to a glass of warm milk. Drink it 1 or 2 times daily. Also, include turmeric in your cooking.

Coconut oil is very beneficial for improving blood circulation. It has healthy fats and contains medium-chain triglycerides that help relieve inflammation of the arteries. This in turn improves blood flow throughout the body. Consume 2 to 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil daily.You can also use warm coconut oil to massage your hands and legs daily

Onion is also one of the best foods to improve blood circulation in the body. It contains high concentrations of allicin, a substance that is known to improve blood circulation. It also functions as a diuretic, increasing the amounts of fluids to be excreted. This helps to reduce swelling caused due to poor circulation.

Rosemary is one of the great herbal remedies for blood circulation improvement in the body. Fresh rosemary works best, but you can use the dried ones as well.

Garlic promotes blood circulation, lowers blood pressure and prevents blood platelet aggregation. It is effective in preventing plaque buildup in the arteries and reducing the risk of atherosclerosis. A study published in The Journal of Nutrition in 2006 found that garlic is good for cardiovascular health.Eat 2 to 3 raw garlic cloves daily on an empty stomach, include garlic in your daily cooking

Warm, dry footwear is a must for helping to maintain one’s body temperature.

If you can use stairs instead of a lift at least part of the way, then do so. If you can avoid using a lift, then do so. Stairs really work the legs, raise temperature and get things moving internally.

Folic acid deficiency results in a form of anaemia that responds quickly to folic acid supplementation. Anaemia is a condition when the amount of red blood cells is below normal, accompanied by a tired feeling due to lack of oxygen. There are various factors that cause this including iron deficiency, poor diet and disease. ‘Anaemia’ is a word that literally means “without iron” from the Greek word ‘anaimia’ – which means lack of blood.

B vitamin is essential for reducing levels of damaging amino acid homocysteine. B6 can be found in fish, pulses, nuts, chicken and potatoes.

Lycopene This is a carotenoid noted for its use in reducing the risk of coronary disease. It is fat-soluble and is therefore more efficiently absorbed when eaten with oil. It can be found in raw tomatoes and in any tomato product.

Gel toe separators are handy little inserts that you can secure between your toes.  The compression and gel contour stretch and promote blood flow to your toes.

The Doctors cannot do everything for you , you also do have to do your part to improve, maintain your health.

Natural cures for itchy skin?

h

Itchy skin is a common problem for seniors and doctors rarely help to deal with it.

There are many possible causes, but for some people no obvious cause can be found. Generalised especially in people over 65 years of age itchyness is most commonly caused by dry skin. It may also be caused by medicines or by internal diseases affecting the body. Reduce stress, as stress can make your itch worse. Diabetes can cause it as well

Avoid scratching whenever possible.

Itching, known medically as pruritus, is an uncontrollable and irritating sensation on the skin that urges you to scratch the affected area to get relief. It is also one of your body’s defense mechanisms against irritants. Aloe vera gel will provide immediate relief from itching, that is why it is considered to be one of the most effective home remedies for itchy skin. However, continue to apply it 3 times daily for 4 to 5 days to get complete relief from itchy skin.

Aloe Vera

Break off a leaf from the plant, and cut it open lengthwise from top to bottom with a knife. Scoop out the gooey gel inside, and rub it directly onto irritated skin. If you have extra left over, you can keep it refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.

Aloe veras has  an enzyme called bradykinase found in aloe vera gel helps reduce excessive inflammation when applied topically on the skin. It also contains auxins and gibberellins, which are hormones that aid wound healing. Its fatty acid content adds to its antiseptic and analgesic properties; it can also be used to treat minor burns. It can be used most successfully to get rid of acne and scars, to stop skin itchiness, to make  a homemade face wash, and also to lighten skin.

Making aloe vera gel at home is super easy, very inexpensive.  First wash your hands Always wash your hands before extracting aloe vera gel, as any impurities can contaminate and spoil the gel quickly. Then leave the leaves in upright position for a few minutes to let the darker resin drain out. After the resin has drained, wash the leaves and start peeling off the thick skin with a knife, leaving you with the transparent gel.

Wash a healthy aloe vera leaf under running water.

Using a knife, cut the serrated edges off the leaf. If the leaf is too long, you can cut it into 8-inch pieces for easy handling.

Make a long, lengthwise incision in the middle of the leaf to peel off the skin.

Place your knife right under the rind and slide it along the length of the leaf to pull off the skin. Try to stay close to the skin so you get as much gel as you can.

Repeat the same for the other half of the skin.

If you like your aloe vera gel thick and gooey, skip the blender part. Simply scrape out the aloe vera pulp and use it
Place the gel into a blender and also add a few drops of either grapefruit seed extract, vitamin C powder, vitamin E oil or some essential oil to help preserve the gel for longer period.  Then blend everything, pour into a clean glass jar and you’ve got some fresh aloe vera gel which can be kept for several months in the refrigerator.  Fresh aloe vera gel without any added preservatives will stay good for 1 week when kept refrigerated at all times.

What you can also do?

After you extract the gel from the aloe vera leaf, wash it to remove the yellow liquid that sometimes is also removed.

Mix the gel with an equal amount of honey. Thanks to its high content of natural sugars, honey is a product that never expires. The low concentration of water is another key to its long shelf life, just like fruit preserves or fruit stored in syrup

Use this for making smoothies, teas, and facial masks, and more.

After the bath, it is important to gently pat your skin dry with a towel (or air-dry). For more localized itching you can make a paste of 1 part water to 3 parts baking soda

Apple Cider Vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is an effective antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent that relieves itching, especially itching associated with dry skin (for example: sunburns and dandruff). Or Mix 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, adding honey, cinamon as well. Add two or three cups of vinegar to your bath water and soak for 15 to 30 minutes. Apple Cider Vinegar  works as an antiseptic and helps kill the invading pathogen as well as neutralizing the skin’s acidity to alleviate itching.

Coconut Oil.

Besides removing the dryness and roughness of skin which makes itching worse, coconut oil has a soothing action on itching itself. In fact, coconut oil is often used to relieve itching due to insect bites and nettle stings. To be sure your oil is as pure as it can be, make sure to opt for an Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil that is either  cold-pressed and unrefined, or pressed. Coconut oil is a cheap and effective natural treatment for many skin conditions including eczema. It can also be used on the skin for everyday moisture, as a lip balm, makeup remover and so much more. Coconut oil is extremely gentle on the skin and can be used by people of all ages and all skin types.

If your skin’s seriously dry, coconut oil for skin is one of the best remedies. Rub coconut oil in hands to warm it up and then use it in lieu of body lotion. Because coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, moisturizing and, according to research, great for atopic dermatitis, many women swear by its use as a nighttime moisturizer for their face, too. The best way to use it is to rub a little coconut oil directly onto the affected area. If you suffer from a widespread itch all over the body especially during the winter, soak in a bathtub of lukewarm water; then just pat yourself dry and apply the oil all over.

Using it as a topical therapy significantly improves skin hydration as well as skin surface lipid levels. Coconut oil also is able to penetrate your skin on a deeper level than your average product because of its low molecular weight and the way it bonds with proteins. Create a simple detox bath with coconut oil by adding ¼ cup of Epsom salts, great for detoxing, to ¼ cup of coconut oil into a hot bath. “Coconut oil is as effective and safe as mineral oil when used as a moisturizer.”

Stretch marks occur as the skin’s elasticity changes, most frequently after weight gain/loss or pregnancy. Using coconut oil can help reduce the marks that are left behind, helping them fade more quickly while keeping skin moisturized to allow quicker healing. We should warn that some people might have an allergic reaction to the coconut oil itself. Although this appears to be a rare reaction,

Cold water

Apply a cold, wet cloth or ice pack to the skin that itches. A cool, wet compresses to soothe the itch. Do this for about five to 10 minutes or until the itch subsides.
Because cold and itch travel along the same nerve fibers, the use of cold can “jam the circuits” and deaden itch. Cool showers or baths or even ice packs can be an instant remedy for itchy skin. Again, hot water feels good temporarily, but it often leaves you feeling itchier later.

Peppermint Leaves

Peppermint is great for bug bites and itching, as it provides a cooling sensation that’ll give you welcome relief. The quickest, easiest way is to crush up the leaves and rub the peppermint directly onto the skin. You could even freeze the crushed peppermint leaves into ice cubes for a cooling double-whammy, as the cold of the ice cubes also helps to numb the affected area and bring down swelling and inflammation. Always use clean, filtered water.

 

Lemon

With a rich content of vitamin C and bleaching properties, lemons are one of the best remedies for itchy skin. The volatile oil in lemon has the ability to numb sensations and is also good against inflammation. Simply cut a lemon in two and squeeze out a little juice over the itchy area; allow to air dry and you’ll soon find some relief.

You can use tea tree essential oil to get rid of itchy skin. The homemade aloe vera paste for dry scalp. This natural salve to get rid of itchy scalp contains two main ingredients – tea tree oil and aloe vera. Other than that, secondary ingredients include coconut oil and lemon juice. Lemon juice has powerful doses of citric acid that breaks down the yeast buildup on the scalp. Coconut oil has both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties in just the right proportion, which help to stimulate blood flow, reduce scalp infection and free up hair follicles Ingredients 1 tablespoon fresh aloe vera gel 1 tablespoon coconut oil 10 drops of tea tree oil, 1/2  tablespoon lemon juice

 Garlic is packed with zinc and copper which stimulate blood circulation, cleanse scalp of the buildup residue and help remove flaky dandruff. Crush a few garlic cloves and extract the juice. Mix 1 tablespoon of garlic juice with half a cup of coconut oil. Heat it in low flame. Massage the oil on to your scalp. Massage until you feel your scalp becoming warm. Let it sit for an hour or so. Rinse your hair with clarifying shampoo and condition. Another seamless natural way to include garlic in your hair care routine to prevent hair loss is by simply adding garlic to your regular conditioner.

Garlic Salve  a soothing salve out of it. Now, garlic alone can be irritating on the skin, but when you combine it with healing aloe vera and nourishing honey, it adds a punch of goodness to it. Ingredients 1 tablespoon of garlic 1 tablespoon of honey 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel

 Garlic Spray This is by far the most handy way to use garlic in your hair care routine. This natural remedy is perfect for hair growth. Ingredients 1 tablespoon of garlic juice 1 tablespoon of olive oil 1 cup distilled water 10 drops of lavender oil

Other

Hydrocortisone. An anti-itch cream is another common way to soothe itchy skin. Buy an anti-itch cream that contains at least 1 percent hydrocortisone. This drug inhibits inflammatory responses in the body and can help calm inflamed, itchy skin.

When Itching is a Serious Problem.

These products not always miracle treatment .

Regardless of the cause, schedule an appointment with an adequate doctor if you’re itching constantly for three or more days. If you’re experiencing severe eczema or have a topical infection, it is always best to seek medical advice immediately.

 

Milk is it really good for you or what are the bad side effects?

One thing we know for sure milk is good for the dairy farmers, a real money maker.

milk-cheese-yogurt

Decades of public health, commercial  messages have encouraged us to drink milk to strengthen our bones and also to reduce the risk of fractures as we age.

Dairy products have recently come under fire as Researchers have linked high milk intakes to nopne fractures, diabetes, heart problems, cancer and premature ageing.

Research reviews, published in the British Medical Journal, reported that calcium supplementation and dietary calcium intake didn’t substantially reduce the risk of hip fractures or increase bone mineral density in adults aged over 50 years.

Is milk is healthy or harmful, and whether you should include it in your diet depends on how much and what kind of milk products you consume. . And it depends on your age and current health status. Also whether you’re underweight or carrying excess weight, elderly or convalescent, or have food allergies or intolerance.

Does  Milk increases your risk of chronic diseases

Dietary calcium and dairy products are important for bone development up until the end of adolescence and for maintaining peak bone mass in adulthood.

But there seem to be few benefits for older adults, in terms of fracture prevention, neither for dietary intake or supplementation. There are also possible adverse effects from too much calcium, such as kidney stones, heart problems and gastrointestinal symptoms.

Persons with lactase non-persistence are largely lactose-intolerant. When these people consume milk, the lactose remains unabsorbed in the gut, causing bloating (due to bacterial fermentation) and build-up of fluid leading to diarrhoea.

Milk and dairy products, especially full-fat varieties, are high in saturated fat. Two-thirds (68%) of milk fat is saturated fat.

Saturated fat has been suggested to increase concentrations of “bad” cholesterol in the blood and to increase the risk of heart disease.

The quantity of milk consumed is important to consider in any case – a dash (40 mL) of full fat milk in a cup of tea or coffee will provide 1.6 grams of fat (1.1 grams of saturated fat) and 118 kJ of energy. A full fat milk “grande latte” will provide approximately 15 grams of fat (10.2 grams of saturated fat) and 934 kJ of energy.

Milk is a cocktail of hormones, pesticides and antibiotics

While it is difficult to compare study conditions and provide definitive conclusions Beware..

Alcohol Consumption

ALCOHOL (1)

Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally retarded .
.
Poison is a good choice of words, particularly when the substance is in the hands of young people who often think themselves immune from the dangers around them Drinking even one alcoholic beverage while soaking in the sun can increases skin cancer risk by 20 percent while drinking more than four glasses increases this risk by 55 percent, a new study finds . It’s estimated that roughly 13% of those watching the watching Super Bowl will consume alcoholic beverages. Too many deaths are also linked to energy drinks being mixed with alcohol. This is a dangerous combination . And it’s just a matter of time before new regulations start to surface here too. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people impaired by these products are young, often those not yet of legal drinking age. They mix it with juices and stimulant drinks that enhance the poisonous effects. According to the American Cancer Society, cancers linked to alcohol use include mouth, throat, voice box, esophagus, liver, colon and rectum, breasts, and even pancreatic cancer. For each of these cancers, the risk increases with the amount of alcohol consumed.
.
Heavy drinking can cause cancer, heart disease, stroke, liver failure and other diseases, and drinkers are more likely to die in acccidents or to be murdered. And people who drink and smoke together raise their serious health disease risk even more.
.
Alcohol is still an ‘important cause’ of premature death . Overall, most deaths were due to liver disease (63 per cent) and neuropsychiatric disorders (32 per cent). Excessive alcohol use can cause or exacerbate disorders such as alcohol dependence syndrome, depression, anxiety and psychotic episodes. In Canada, the U.S., Argentina and Costa Rica, Cuba, the highest mortality rates were seen among those aged 50 to 69 http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/01/04/the-problem-of-doing-your-own-thing/
.

Even light and moderate drinking – up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men – could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers.

For women, the researchers observed, the risk of alcohol-related cancers – mainly breast cancer – increased even after one alcoholic drink a day One alcoholic drink a day is enough to increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer,

All people with a family history of cancer should also consider reducing their intake to below recommended limits or even abstaining altogether, “given the now well-established link between moderate drinking and alcohol-related cancers.”

The risks

  • Alcohol is linked to an increased risk of mouth, throat, gullet, bowel, liver and breast cancer
  • Smoking and drinking together further increases cancer risk
  • All types of alcohol increase cancer risk
  • The more you drink, the higher the risk
  • Cutting down on alcohol can reduce cancer risk

One in two people who smoke will die of a smoking related illness…

People can spend 20 years drinking alcohol and not feel any of the effects this is doing to them. Eventually you reap what you sowed and the damage shows up.

.

Pancreatitis – Alcohol is the second highest cause of pancreatitis. This is an inflammation of your pancreas, an organ that makes enzymes for digestion, and causes pain just below your ribs. If you’ve overdone it you may feel this pain for a few days. In some cases it can become severe and persistent. This is called acute pancreatitis and can be life threatening.

.

Liver disease is the term used to describe damage to the liver and there are two types. Acute is when liver problems develop over a few months and chronic is damage over a number of years.

.

Scientists are not sure exactly why drinking too much alcohol can damage your liver but the reasons include:

  1. Oxidative stress. When our liver tries to break down alcohol, the resulting chemical reaction can damage its cells. This damage can lead to inflammation and scarring as the liver tries to repair itself.
  2. Toxins in gut bacteria. Alcohol can damage our intestine which lets toxins from our gut bacteria get into the liver. These toxins can also lead to inflammation and scarring.

.

Early symptoms of liver disease can include:

  • fatigue
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pains

.

And liver damage symptoms can include bleeding in the gut

.

Diabetes – People who drink beer, alcohol are often overweight – and as a result, can go on to develop diabetes

A sobering new study finds that alcohol consumption in American states rises as the population’s politics becomes more liberal.The study shows a direct correlation between political beliefs and the demand for alcohol. The study compares sales of alcoholic beverages against the political leanings of a state’s members of Congress, as ranked by liberal organizations Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) and the AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (COPE).The research reveals that states with more liberal representatives like Nevada tend to consume up to three times more alcohol per head than more politically conservative states like Arkansas and Utah

Most headlines about moderate alcohol consumption are still misleading ones —such as a drink or two a day is good for your heart, your soul, and may even extend your lifespan! But a new study finds that regularly consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol can cause a decrease in brain plasticity, or the brain’s ability to generate new cells. It rather kills even existing brain cells..
.
Once the alcohol is absorbed into the tissue, it affects your mind and body. Blood alcohol concentration can rise up to 20 minutes after having a drink. After alcohol is absorbed it leaves the body in three ways: the kidneys, lungs, and liver. Alcohol is not a stimulant, it is actually a sedative-depressant of the central nervous-system, it is capable of rupturing blood capillaries and veins, it does not warm you up; in fact it makes you colder by increasing perspiration and causing body heat loss, it damages the branched end of nerve cells that bring messages into the cell, causing disruptions to brain function. It depletes the body of many essential nutrients such as all the B vitamins, especially B1, B2, B3,B6, B12, folic acid, vitamins C and K, zinc, magnesium and potassium. It can hamper the liver’s ability to process fat. It can lead to liver toxicity and disease. The high sugar content of alcoholic drinks can lead to hypoglycemia and predispose to diabetes. Drinking alcohol regularly can lead to its dependence. Drinking alcohol damages the liver, kidneys, and lungs
.
Alcohol consumption has previously been linked to a reduced bone mineral density (BMD), or osteoporosis, and increases the risk of fractures especially since bone fractures can be the result of falls, and one in three adults over 65 will experience a fall each year, this is a serious issue. And too much booze can cause people to age prematurely. It impairs your driving now too no matter how old you are. Some of the wider known effects of alcohol include diminished performance, mental impairment, possible addiction, diabetes and liver disease. Now there a very few people, though, who can have one small drink too.. Yes too many have ended up dying from alcohol abuse, and as well there are those whose alcoholism led them to stop taking care of themselves. Alcoholism certainly can increase the risk of many different diseases occurring, especially as an individual grows older, and most of the negative effects are irreversible as well.
.
“As alcohol is a by-product of yeast digestion, it can have an irritating effect on the lining of the stomach and gradually weaken the kidneys and liver, leading to serious health problems and can prove fatal in extreme cases. When the stomach is weakened it becomes less efficient at digesting food, which inevitably interferes with a healthy metabolism and positive weight loss. Also, after alcohol is consumed it is then the first energy supply to be used up by your body when combined with carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which postpone the fat-burning process. As a result this can lead to greater fat storage, meaning that whenever you drink you will not be burning away your fat stores in the near future. Another shocking fact is that alcohol supplies almost twice as many calories as proteins and carbohydrates, seven calories per gram! And as all of these extra calories you are getting from alcohol contain zero nutrients, they accelerate fat storage while also having a negative effect on a healthy metabolism.”
.
Now every drop of alcohol you drink, every bad drug you take, kills your brain cell, and you become more and more brain dead.. retarded and Recent medical studies also do indicate that young Men who take marijuana, drugs are also twice as likely to get testicular cancer next before the age of 35 even
.
Statistics which show an increase of in the number of people binge drinking, getting drunk and that the statistics also show that we still have a long way to deal with this major problem. 81% of people who choose to drink are still exceeding the recommended daily limits. The cost of alcohol misuse to our society is very real. In just over 10 years, there has been a startling 86% increase in the numbers of people dying due to alcohol related harm. The harsh reality is that although alcohol misuse is known to be damaging and harmful to health and well-being, many people still drink to excess. This must change,
.
If you drink 2 martinis at lunch time or supper time for a start you are definitely an alcoholic. Now besides the negative effect of alcohol in the private sector they do not booze it up as much as our civil and public servants, politicians have and do for sure. Politicians, civil and there Public servants Pigging out, living high on the hog, or getting drunk, and patronistic hiring practices, are clearly an unacceptable abuse.
.
“One of the risks to seniors of drinking alcohol is that as human bodies age, they lose muscle mass and their body functions slow down, meaning it takes less alcohol for them to become more intoxicated or suffer other ill effects, such as bone loss or cerebral atrophy. Another problem that alcohol often interacts negatively with medication, which older people too often are be taking a significant amount of, depending on their health.” Alcohol may seriously increase your risk of health problems and even seriously now damage your heart. Although some would say it may offer some very marginal health benefits, for your heart. Are you willing to take the risks of bad health associated with the consumption of alcohol still then?
.
Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. 70 percent of Canadians drink alcohol, 15 percent Canadians are alcoholic, binge drinkers so of course alcohol is associated now with politics, Christian politicians as well. Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study. Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. All governments should consider more education programs and raising the price of alcohol so it isn’t as widely available.
.
“What governments decide is illegal is not always based on science,” for monetary considerations about revenue and taxation, like those garnered from the alcohol and tobacco industries, may influence decisions about which substances to regulate or outlaw. “Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit,”
.
IN ONE YEAR 60% of fatally injured drivers in Canada had a positive reading for blood alcohol and 160,000 people were convicted of impaired driving . IMPAIRED DRIVING CONVICTIONS ARE MAINLY ENFORCED 2 MONTHS OF THE YEAR FIRSTLY, AND ARE NOT DONE THE WHOLE YEAR. generally alcohol-related driving offences account for approximately 25% of all Criminal Code prosecutions. ” If you drink and drive, it’s everybody’s business” still. In an average year in Canada, impaired driving killed 1,212 persons, injured 71,532, and caused damage to 236,375 vehicles, translating into 1,010 fatal crashes, 48,890 injury-only crashes and 155,510 property-damage only (PDO) crashes, totaling an average of 205,410 crashes in all. In turn, on average, this cost Canadians between $1.90 billion (Real Dollar Estimate model) and $11.28 billion (Willingness to Pay model) dollars, depending on the costing model and assumptions used. To put this another way, that represents a cost of between about $59.00 and $341.00 per Canadian. EXCLUDING THE EXTRA COSTS FOR INSURANCE NOW TOO..

Ever notice that if you watch the movies or the TV they give you a really lying, distorted image of alcohol drinkers where they are all smiling, happy faces too.. unlike the real taverns, bar scenes ehh.. where people cause trouble, are depressed, etc.,, Drinking alcohol cause permanent brain damage, it also causes a significant deterioration of one’s mental capabilities, deterioration of one’s inter personal relationship skills, it also causes more car accidents than speeding or not having adequate winter tires, it also reduces significantly one’s work productivity as well undeniably too. It has ruined many families as well. There are about 5,000 alcohol-related crashes in B.C., Canada every year, causing about 155 deaths and 3,000 injuries, according to the Insurance Corp. of B.C. – ICBC’s website.In BC alcohol revenues provide the government with $1 billion annually.
.
Provincial Governments, cops too do not want to reduce gambling or alcohol consumption for it is a great money maker for them, and too many Canadian politicians and cops do like to booze.. But health and enforcement costs related to alcohol were $57 million higher than revenue generated by alcohol sales. Alcohol consumption has increased almost twice as much in British Columbia as it has in the rest of the country, according to a new study.
.
Researchers at the University of Victoria Centre for Addictions Research say British Columbians’ alcohol consumption has risen 16 per cent since 1998. That’s almost twice the nine per cent increase seen in the rest of Canada. and if that is true now there should be twice as much arrests for drunk driving and twice as much prison incarceration for drunk driving too? is there or why not? Kind of foolish encouraging people to become alcoholics at taxpayers expense, for while a few corporations will get richer in the process.
.
Also a review of B.C. accidents from 1999 to 2003 showed that nearly a third of such impaired drivers faced more drunk driving charges, even after they killed or maimed others in 84 per cent of the initial accidents.“Follow-up over a 4.5 year period indicated that 30.7 per cent of the injured impaired drivers were engaged in subsequent impaired driving, notwithstanding that they injured or killed someone in more than 84 per cent of initial crashes. These studies suggest that our emergency departments may have become safe havens for the worst drinking drivers, those drivers who are involved in fatal or personal injury crashes. They recover, get out of hospital, drive drunk again, and escape prosecution and conviction. It doesn’t take them long which is exactly why the conviction rate has to go up. There needs to be more intervention to get them off the roads,” Booze, gambling revenues now worth more than the oil- gas royalties to Alberta government all thanks to a past alcoholic premier there.

PEOPLE WHO TAKE DRUGS, ALCOHOL TEND ALSO TO CHEAT, LIE, STEAL.INDULGE IN PORN, COMMIT ADULTERY.. AS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LITTLE BIT PREGNANT HERE TOO..
.
About those self centered, clearly self oriented, selfish, immoral weasels who with the help of ostriches, snakes do try to falsely continue to justify their immoral acts of drunkenness.. even while they themselves escalated their hurts upon others and have also increased the taxpayers costs, I do not care to listen to their lies, false justifications distortions over the reality. The reality is that innocent people do suffer too often as a result of the alcoholic drunks and they the drunks wrongfully continue to bring a vast amount of pain, suffering to others. Drunk drivers hurt others.. There’s just no cure for drunks except Jesus. I bet he’s a repeat offender. There is no need to send it to court. Merely Ban the idiot from driving for the next 100 years and throw him in jail for five years. If proven to be impaired, the driver will be without insurance. they also will sue him to recover their losses, garnish his wages and put a lien on his house and anything else he owns. But he or she will continue likely to drink and drive. Alcoholism is not just too often a supposed sickness but it is violence, and murder..
.
Now about the police rightfully going after drunks all year, not just mainly the car speeders.. Oh I forgot the police are too often drunks themselves, and drink and drive too.. Alcoholics do not need a reason or a season to get drunk, on the job or off the job, including many civil and public servants now too, for they do it all year. They also still need to be jailed, fired and not rather neglected.
.
We already know that the first alcoholic drink too can be deadly to an alcoholic next.. And Regular alcohol or marijuana use takes a worse toll on the teenage brain than thought . It seems that 70 percent of the adults drink alcohol in Canada too but 100 percent of them claim to be non alcoholics? civil and public servants included, and where do all of the many drunk drivers, alcoholics come from now too?
.
We need to also stop electing liars and alcoholics too.. be for certain there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, and that there is a direct correlation between the people who are heavy alcohol users.. that they are the same persons who will also take bad drugs… and they will also be the same persons who also now do cheat , lie, steal, commit tax evasions.. as they have no solid morality. It seems we have too many cheats, thieves, liars, alcoholics, adulterers for cops and for politicians, civil and public servants still in Canada.. for basically there is no such thing as a little bit pregnant, it seems you are basically honest or merely another crook…

A new study suggests Canadians are thirstier than ever as sales of wine, beer and spirits are on track to setting a record high. Increasing indulgence has been a trend all year long with Canadians spending close to half a billion dollars more on alcohol in the first nine months of 2012 than in 2011, and if this growth holds up through the holiday season, that would set the stage for record retail sales of more than $19 billion in 2012. Whether it is family get-togethers, holiday parties or just drinking to stay warm, liquor sales typically surge by over 40 per cent of the monthly average in December, the study suggests. By comparison, despite the hordes of people descending on malls to purchase gifts for their loved ones, the retail sector only rises by 15-20 per cent in December. Alcohol sales on pace to high record high: report Canada becoming a nation of alcoholics
.
Drink Alcohol and Die or Kill is fast becoming Canada’s preoccupation, main goal, slogan.. The problem with the Police or Politicians consuming alcohol, is that alcohol not only makes you a mental retard cause it does now kills your brain cell, alcohol also kills your emotions of compassion, and reasoning ability now as well..Alcohol and alcoholics the unacceptable main cause of vehicular accidents, domestic violence, and so many other ills…It is not the rapists, drunk drivers that mostly fill the courts calendars, docks it is mostly the revenue generating traffic tickets.. if the government wants to get tough on crime, as it purports, it should go after the real criminals. Drunk, impaired drivers too. DRUNK DRIVING KILLS AT LEAST 5 TIMES MORE PERSONS OVER SPEEDING FIRSTLY .

.

Now we know that more people have accident due to road rage, impaired driving, driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol over speeding too and we still do need to review how much time and resources do the police deal with that speeding and neglect the drunk drivers firstly? “An Australian study estimates that about half of all traffic accidents in Australia may be due to road rage and most of the others related to alcohol, impaired driving and yet the police falsely tend to pursue revenue generating speeding traffic tickets still and why? Road rage is a relatively serious act; it can be seen as a violation of human and property rights , an endangerment of other’s personal well being, security. Women tend to be a higher risk for drunk driving than men. Why you might ask? It is due to the fact that women tend to have more passengers in the car or are more likely to be distracted or have small children present. Men are more likely to be driving alone or less distracted by what is going on around them
.
Canadians are spending hundreds of millions of dollars every year self-medicating their insomnia with alcohol, a study suggests alcohol has a very negative effect on your sleep. It deprives you of any of the deep stages of sleep“We were very surprised to see that so many people use alcohol as a way to promote sleep, particularly because it has more detrimental than beneficial effects on sleep,” Overall, eight per cent of the sample reported using alcohol as a sleep aid. Among people with insomnia, 28 per cent reported self-medicating with alcohol. “We know insomnia is a very prevalent problem, it has a very negative impact on people’s quality of SLEEP: it’s 10 times more costly not to treat insomnia because of its impact on absenteeism from work and reduced productivity than it is to treat it, why aren’t we treating it more often?” Part of the problem is that so few people seek help. Now some people take sleeping pills, that can also affect their brain cells negatively “but there are many more who self-medicate with over-the-counter products or, worse, with alcohol.” The money spent on the use of booze as a sleep aid far exceeds costs associated with visits to doctors and the use of prescription pills and over-the-counter products from antihistamines to herbal teas.

A new study suggests Canadians are thirstier than ever as sales of wine, beer and spirits are on track to setting a record high. Increasing indulgence has been a trend all year long with Canadians spending close to half a billion dollars more on alcohol in the first nine months of 2012 than in 2011, and if this growth holds up through the holiday season, that would set the stage for record retail sales of more than $19 billion in 2012. Whether it is family get-togethers, holiday parties or just drinking to stay warm, liquor sales typically surge by over 40 per cent of the monthly average in December, the study suggests. By comparison, despite the hordes of people descending on malls to purchase gifts for their loved ones, the retail sector only rises by 15-20 per cent in December.

Even moderate alcohol drinking raises cancer death risk: study Alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine, according to a new study. Heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine, or crystal meth, were the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the deadliest. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances, followed by heroin and crack cocaine. Experts said alcohol scored so high because it is so widely used and has devastating consequences not only for drinkers but for those around them. When drunk in excess, alcohol damages nearly all organ systems. It is also connected to higher death rates and is involved in a greater percentage of crime than most other drugs, including heroin. Alcohol, drugs common in fatal crashes: study- More than half of US drivers killed in car accidents had alcohol or drugs in their system at the time of the crash, according to a study.

And alcohol is a “major” contributor to cancer deaths in the United States, even when consumed in small amounts. ‘The risk of developing breast cancer from drinking even small amounts of alcohol is being ignored by women with thousands now needlessly dying every year. Less than two drinks a day can increase the risk of developing cancer, doctors have warned, after finding that even moderate consumption was linked to almost a third of alcohol-related cancers.
.
The majority of deaths due to alcohol consumption seemed to occur among people who consumed more than three alcoholic drinks a day, but those who consumed 1.5 beverages daily may account for up to a third of those deaths, the researchers found
.
Leaders who boast now of their consuming alcoholic beverages are encouraging others to next become alcoholics, the teenagers too… what a bad example of their leadership skills too.

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. (Gal. 5:19-26).

Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. .

Drunkenness (and/or alcoholism) is a very serious problem in our society. The statistics associated with drinking alcohol are both alarming and disturbing, especially from a Christian point of view:
.
It is apparent that a wide variety of temporal problems stem from drinking alcohol, as just shown. The above cited dangers and sufferings for the drunk, however, are inconsequential and almost not even worth mentioning compared to the greatest danger in the entire universe—that of being thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, which is forever.
.
Furthermore, there is no such thing as a Christian alcoholic since drunkards will not inherit the kingdom of God.
.
Jesus similarly taught about drunkenness:
But suppose the servant says to himself, “My master is taking a long time in coming,” and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk. The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers (Luke 12:45, 46).
.
The physical dangers of alcohol consumption include:
● Liver damage especially, but also brain, heart, bone marrow and gastrointestinal tract. Such can lead to cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, cirrhosis, nerve problems, etc. When the liver is affected nutrition is also adversely impacted which will hurt the entire body.
● Becoming overweight. One glass of wine daily can add 10 pounds a year to your weight.;

Four More Facts About Drunkenness
(1) It leads to debauchery:
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:18).
(2) It brings woe, sorrow, strife, complaints, needless bruises and bloodshot eyes:
Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine. Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly! In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper. Your eyes will see strange sights and your mind imagine confusing things. You will be like one sleeping on the high seas, lying on top of the rigging. “They hit me,” you will say, “but I’m not hurt! They beat me, but I don’t feel it! When will I wake up so I can find another drink?” (Prov. 23:29-35)
(3) It reveals those who do get drunk as unwise:
Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise (Prov. 20:1).
(4) It disqualifies a person from spiritual leadership:

(1 Tim 3:1 KJV) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

.

1 Tim 3:2 Now a bishop (superintendent, overseer) must give no grounds for accusation {but} must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, circumspect {and} temperate {and} self-controlled ( Sober) ; [he must be] sensible {and} well behaved {and} dignified and lead an orderly (disciplined) life; [he must be] hospitable [showing love for and being a friend to the believers, especially strangers or foreigners, and be] a capable {and} qualified teacher,

.
Since an overseer is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain (Titus 1:7).
.
Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks, who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine. They have harps and lyres at their banquets, tambourines and flutes and wine, but they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD, no respect for the work of his hands (Isa. 5:11,12).
.
Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Rom. 13:13,14).
.
It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall (Rom. 14:21).
.

(1 Cor 11:28 KJV) But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

.

(Prov 3:33 KJV) The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

.

Jesus himself had said that professing to be a Christian is not enough,

Matt 3:8 Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart];

Gal 5:23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law

Matt 7:16 You will fully recognize them by their fruits. Do people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?17 Even so, every healthy (sound) tree bears good fruit [worthy of admiration], but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree bears bad (worthless) fruit. 18 A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit, nor can a bad (diseased) tree bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration]. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits.

.

Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
.
Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
.
Hebrews 3:11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest
.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor… idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Taking a Nazarite vow makes one a true Nazarite. A Nazarite should also abstain from strong drink (wine containing alcohol). It is possible for Jesus to have been a Nazarite, due to the fact that he did abstain from drinking strong drink (wine containing alcohol). , which he would have to do in order to keep an Nazarite vow and he also would be not to put a razor to his head. Do Jesus would have long hair. then Elizabeth, John the Baptist’s mother was cautioned by an angel, as was Samson’s mother told to abstain from certain dietary no-no’s namely strong fermented grape juice and unclean meats. During the Jewish wedding, He Jesus had turned water into wine (pure grape juice-without fermentation). Yes we can be assured the Jesus still never ever consumed any alcohol even if Jesus did make the best wine in those days but it was a pure fresh grape juice , non alcoholic, it was unfermented,.

.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

.
Ephesians 5: And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

.

.. the latest studies show you can get almost all the same benefits from grape juice. The reason Purple grape juice contains the same powerful disease fighting antioxidants, called flavonoids, that are believed to give wine many of its heart friendly benefits. .. but watch the sugar content or your juice supplier or you might get diabetes.. It seems that Jesus and the Apostles knew the benefits of grape juice, when they drank new wine, the unfermented wine..
.
“Do not drink wine nor strong drink, …when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;” (Leviticus 10:9,10)(Isa 28:1 KJV) Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! (Eph 5:18 KJV) And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
.
(Gal 5:19 KJV) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
.
(Col 3:5 KJV) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Homemade Dandruff Treatments & Shampoos

hair wash

Not washing one’s hair is certainly a time-saver. Imagine this,  but not five days  with no shampoo or conditioner. Dream on..

Dandruff may be also caused by not rinsing well your hair well after a soap wash and  thus using additionally a conditioner can help.

.

If you know you have dandruff, than read on.

Below are home remedies to help you

.

1. Pour, Rinse, With Vinegar

Rinsing your hair with vinegar (specifically Apple Cider Vinegar or white vinegar) actually addresses the root of the problem Put simply, dandruff is the result of skins cells maturing and dying too fast, building up, and causing irritation. Vinegar will get rid of the unwanted skin that would flake off into dandruff, and it won’t clog up your pores or cause more. An overgrowth of fungus can also cause dandruff, and vinegar acts like a fungicide. Using it is straightforward, simple, and is probably easier on your hair than some shampoos out there.

.

You will need…
-1/2 cup warm water
-1/2 cup ACV or white vinegar
-A cup

Directions
Mix together the warm water and vinegar in a cup. The total amount may be varied to be more or less depending on how much hair you have. Pour the mixture over your hair, scrub it around gently for several minutes, and then rinse it thoroughly with water (only water!) Wait about 8-12 hours before taking a normal shower. Repeat once every week or two weeks, depending on how often you feel you need it.

.

2.  Baking Soda

Baking soda is just an all-around useful thing to have in the house. It plays a large part in a lot of natural home remedies, and for good reason-it usually works! It helps to remove dandruff for a number of reasons. First, it mildly exfoliates, which gets rid of the excess dead skin. It’s also kills off acts as a fungicide, and a common fungus that occurs on everyone’s scalp can cause dandruff if it becomes overly abundant. In addition, its tiny particles can be useful in actually removing those loose flakes stuck in your hair-instead of just breaking the pieces of skin up into smaller pieces.

You will need…
-1 tablespoon of baking soda
-1 cup of water
-A few drops of rosemary oil (optional)

Directions
Mix one tablespoon of baking soda to every one cup of warm water. If you’re using an old (clean) shampoo or soap bottle, shake up the mixture and apply generously. Otherwise, stir it before you use it. Do this in place of shampoo, daily if possible. Your hair may feel quite dry in the beginning, but its natural oils will restore themselves soon, and they will be much more balanced than when using some commercial shampoo. If you feel you absolutely must use shampoo (and really try the baking soda alone first if you can) you can add a teaspoon of baking to a handful of shampoo and use that instead. The rosemary oil is optional, but some people find rosemary helps dandruff and think it has a pleasant scent.

.

3.You can  Utilize Listerine

Listerine was actually created in 1879 by a doctor in Missouri and used as a powerful surgical antiseptic for dentists. one its original purposes was also to fight dandruff. Listerine fights fungus, and one of the most common cause of dandruff is an overabundance of fungus.

You will need…
-Water
-Listerine Mouthwash (preferably not green or blue as they might stain your hair)
-Spray bottle (optional)

Directions…
Mix 2 parts water with 1 part Listerine. After you shampoo, spray or pour the solution onto your scalp, massage in well, and let sit for 30 minutes before rinsing with water.

.

4. Get Some Sun on your scalp

It’s not known exactly why, but there have been links between dandruff and exposure to sunlight. There have been many cases in which the severity of dandruff lessened when the afflicted person spent more time in the sun.

,

5.  Aspirin

Aspirin can help with more than just headaches-it’s also an easy at-home remedy for dandruff. Pure Aspirin uses a large percentage of Salicylic Acid, which is an active ingredient in many commercial anti-dandruff shampoos. Salicylic Acid has fungicidal and anti-microbial properties to fight the extra flakes caused by fungus, while the Aspirin helps with the inflamed skin that often goes hand-in-hand with severe cases of dandruff.

You will need…
-2 white Aspirin tablets
-Shampoo

Directions…
Crush up the Aspirin until it becomes a fine powder. Add it to your regular shampoo before use, making sure to leave it in your hair for about 2 minutes before rinsing completely.

Simple Home Reading Glasses test

 

  • reading glasses

Reading glasses are rarely manufactured for strengths greater than 4, and typically range from strengths of 1-3. While reading glasses generally don’t need to be as accurate as normal prescription glasses, finding the right size for you is important, as wearing the wrong size can cause headaches, dizziness, or nausea. While there are many styles and colors to choose from, you may want to start your reading glass journey with a bigger pair of specs. “You may need larger glasses frames or lens to really get the sweet spot of where the prescription is,”  You can go down in size as you get used to wearing them,.

Those who are depressed are more likely to exhibit risky behavior with drugs and alcohol, as well as being more likely to attempt suicide. In fact, are more associated with a shorter lifespan than the smokers. .The standard course of treatment for depression is questionable medication. Often it takes a combination of two or more different medications to mask, control the symptoms, and it is a trial and error approach to find the right combination for each patient. When medicine has been tried and doesn’t work then generally nothing can help cause doctors are not really dealing with the basic causes of the depression.
