Nail Diagnosis

The nails, skin, tongue, and hair are all outward reflections of your inner health, and we can learn to read these signs with practice and study. The nails are alive and always growing and they’re quick to show us what might be going on in the body. REMEMBER- everything you see on the outside of your body, is a reflection of something going on inside your body.

Bojenmi – Weight Loss Tea From China

Bojenmi is a tea that is used for weight loss in China. It contains medicinal herbs that strengthen your digestive system and spleen, and reduce water retention. The formula includes several herbs, the main one being a tea leaf found in the Fujian Province. Bojenmi’s herbs are traditionally used to enhance digestion, resolve accumulations of mucus and moisture, eliminate food stagnation, and provide a slight laxative effect. The combination works with the four therapeutic actions relied upon in Chinese medicine to promote weight loss and reduce blood lipids. By enhancing digestive function, general digestion is improved. Good digestion results in good health and a long life. By enhancing the spleen, nutrient absorption is improved which results in better metabolism and energy. By reducing blood lipids, fat is removed from the blood which results in lower cholesterol. Excess mucus in our body results in excess water by removing the mucus the excess water is expelled.

Understanding Vitamin A

People use to get a dose of vitamin A from cod liver oil but it tastes awful and often cause digestive upsets. Once known as the ‘anti-infective vitamin”, vitamin A has recognition as a major player in immune status. Carotenes, some of which can be converted into vitamin A, are immune enhancers. Carotenes represent the most widespread group of naturally occurring pigments in nature. They are an intensely colored group of fat-soluble compounds. These compounds not only play a vital role in protecting the organism or plant against the tremendous amount of free radicals produced during photosynthesis. Vitamin A is termed retinol, signifying that it is an alcohol involved in the function of the retina of the eye.

Freshen Your Breath Without Chewing On Gum

Osteoporosis – You Can Rebuild Your Bones

A crippling, degenerative disease marked by gradual loss of bone mass, osteoporosis can lead to height loss, a stooped appearance, back pain and skeletal deformities or fractures, especially of the hips. Bone loss occurs at different locations depending on the woman, the most common being the spine and hips. Those with the highest risk have Caucasian or Asian ancestry, a family history of osteoporosis, take excessive mounts of thyroid or cortisone-like drugs, are physically inactive, have early or surgically induced menopause, a diet low in calcium sources and smoke or drink alcohol.

Another Reason For Organic – Irradiation

Nowhere has technology been so misused as in its application to food processing and preservation, and the best example of this misuse has been the practice of using toxic nuclear wastes to irradiate our food.

Aluminum-Free Baking Powder

When baking quick breads and muffins or cookies, use baking powder that is aluminum-free. Studies have shown that aluminum salts can be absorbed from the intestines and concentrated in various human tissues, and that high aluminum levels are found in the brains of patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. In addition, aluminum is linked to bone degeneration and kidney dysfunction.

Watch Out For Fat

In recent years, nutritionists have made distinctions between saturated fats (animal, tropical, and hydrogenated oils) and unsaturated fats (most vegetable) oils, because the saturated fats contribute to heart problems. But if your goal is to slim down, the issue is much simpler: all kinds of fats and oils are problems. They are all packed with calories. Commercially packed goods list their ingredients on the label. The ingredients are listed in decreasing order of their quantities, so if oil is one of the first ingredients, there is more of it than if it is one of the last listed ingredients.
