I have written a few times about aromatherapy and the benefit of essential oils. I have shared how they can help reduce stress, treat acne, help balance the chakras, and assist with a few other conditions. I have even shared with you my favorite essential oils, as well as different ways in which to incorporate aromatherapy into our lives.
But, aromatherapy and essential oils also have little known benefits of supporting high blood pressure, cognitive tasks, menopause, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Here are studies that have shown how they support these four conditions.
A friend of mine recently asked me about protein. She was unsure of what she should be consuming, so I decided to share with you what I shared with her.
Protein is an important part of our diet because proteins form basic structural material within our muscles, bones, tissues, skin, and organs. They also provide support functions that help our daily processes, and are a vital to our health and healing.
Proteins are made up of amino acids, each with a distinct property, which assemble together to make larger molecules. They can assemble in different ways to provide various forms and functions within the body.
I will first tell you more about amino acids, and then explain how that translates into the protein needs for our daily eating habits. I will also share a bit about protein supplementation, and why they may not be as effective in exercise or sports performance as we would want them to be.
This week I wanted to highlight a few herbs that are great to have around. Some of them may be familiar, and some of them may not. Some of them can be consumed as a vegetable, and others are best taken as a supplement, extract, tea, or infusion.
I have divided them according to the benefits they provide, which include menstrual complaints, skin conditions, stress reduction, calm the nerves, relieve congestion, aid digestion, purify blood, and for general wellness. The nine herbs I have included here have various other benefits, which I have also listed, and may provide us with additional incentives to incorporate them into our lives.
As our lives grow more sedentary, we are spending less and less time outdoors. Screens of all types dominate our attention, and we spend so much time focused on a piece of technology or a gadget that we often do not realize how quickly time goes by. How often have we spent time on social media, only to realize we have just dedicated the last hour to following other people’s posts?
And, while there is nothing wrong with that, the result is that we do not spend much time outdoors. In fact, polls have shown that 93% of Americans live a majority of their lives indoors (Loewe, 2017).
Yet, we all know that being outdoors is reinvigorating. If we need to clear our heads we head outside. If we need to refresh a space, we open the windows. If we need to feel alive, we go to a park. When we spend too much time indoors we feel stuffy and stale, and search for a breath of fresh air.
There is a reason for that. Several people have researched the importance of being in nature. This is what they say.
