Amino Acids are not talked about enough and they are necessary in the body, especially for proper brain function. Making sure you are sufficient in amino acids helps to maintain balance in the entire body. Are you suffering from a mood related issue such as anxiety or depression and can't figure out why?
The skin is the largest organ in the body and the outer layer that we present to the world. It is a truly remarkable organ in its direct reflection of what is going on inside your body. It weighs approximately 8 pounds and stretches 22 square feet with about 300 million cells. Laid out in a line, your skin contains about 45 miles of nerves!
You shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour, which weighs around 1.5 pounds per year, so by the age of 70, you will have shed about 105 pounds of skin! In healthy people, the body produces an entire new skin layer every 28 days and is thickest on the soles of the feet and thinnest on the eyelids.
I’ve always wondered why Mother Nature decided to grow some of her most powerful medicinal foods underground? With the exception of the pepper/chilli families, the spiciest foods I can think of like horseradish, garlic, ginger and onions all seem to develop underground. Well, I’ve found out that there are good reasons for this.
First, there’s obviously two parts to most plants (seaweeds and water plants aren't included in this article). The above ground stem system (stem, branches, leaves, fruit) otherwise known as the aerial system, and then there’s the root system, the below ground system.
The two very different worlds which these plant parts exist in has a lot to do with how and what they produce. The stem system is negatively hydrotropic, which means it moves away from water, while the root system is positively hydrotropic, it moves towards water. And the stem system is also negatively goetropic, which means it is growing up against the force of gravity, while the roots are positively geotropic, they are growing down with gravity.
Probiotics are basically beneficial bacteria. We have billions of beneficial bacteria living in our digestive tract. Friendly bacteria helps us digest food and absorb nutrients efficiently. These friendly or beneficial bacteria are very important to our health. In our gut, good bacteria can displace bad bacteria that inhibit our overall health.
Drinking juices is a great way to get easily absorbable nutrients into your body that you might not otherwise consume.They can help protect against pollutants and inflammatory diseases. Drinking Juices is so beneficial to your health and this is why!
Oil pulling is a traditional Indian detox technique that involves swishing oil in the mouth. I love this because it is so beneficial, extremely effective, cheap, and easy. Oil pulling helps the body's natural detoxification process. Usually it is best done in the morning upon waking but can be done at any time. It can act like a cup of coffee, waking you up, but it also helps remove all the bacteria sitting in your mouth that regular brushing doesn’t eliminate.
A coffee enema is a good way to cleanse toxins out of the gall bladder and empty your colon of feces. Caffeine in the coffee is absorbed into the body through the anus. These chemicals relax muscles, stimulate the bowels, and cause bile ducts and blood vessels to open.
This might sound gross to you but this is an excellent way to detox the colon. The colon is part of the large intestine, the final part of the digestive system. Its function is to reabsorb fluids and process waste products from the body and prepare for its elimination.
Have you heard of one of the top 3 most important nutrients to human health? Astaxanthin. It is derived from microalgae and found in wild salmon, responsible for giving salmon their pink color. This carotenoid, has remarkable benefits to human health.
Here are some of the top reasons why I include this supplement everyday:
The body stores within its fatty tissues the toxins that we ingest from the food we eat, air we breathe, water we drink, plastics, antibiotics, vaccines, etc. More than ever we are living in a toxic soup of dangerous pollutants. There are certain small amounts of heavy metals that are nutritionally essential for life. However, there becomes health issues when the body absorbs high levels of heavy metals. Heavy metals accumulate in the body when there are large amounts. The body cannot properly metabolize them and they accumulate in the soft tissues of the body.
Thus, making the body toxic.
If heavy metals are not detoxed from the body, serious damage can occur from all of the toxic build up. Long-term exposure can result in muscle degeneration, Alzeimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, neurological problems, learning disabilities, cancer, to name a few.
Do you know that 85 % of the world's population has some kind of parasite living inside them? Parasites often go undetected and misdiagnosed but they can manifest as symptoms such as trouble sleeping, bloating, digestion issues and seizures. These parasites enter the body from other people, animals, mosquito, ticks, contaminated food, undercooked meat and unclean water.
