        • August 20, 2018 Practical Uses for Turmeric
          Practical Uses for Turmeric

          The benefits of turmeric are commonly touted, which is why we find them in lattes, teas, soups, spice blends, and supplements.

          I use it readily in cooking- I add it to broths, stews, soups, lentils, curries, and on grilled or roasted vegetables.

          Turmeric is a root that looks much like ginger but has thinner branches.  In fact, it comes from the same family as ginger and cardamom- the Zingiberaceae family.

          Turmeric can be used fresh or as a dried spice.  It reduces inflammation, provides anti-oxidants effects, boosts the immune system, and can provide great support for those undergoing cancer treatments. I wrote an article about turmeric a few years ago, where I described some of the clinical evidence supporting the benefits of turmeric.

          5 Books That Can Transform You

          I read.  A lot.  I’ve done it since I was a child, and I have continued this habit as an adult. I read all types of books including fiction, non-fiction, historical, reference, self-development, and spiritual.

          Books offer an escape, a diversion, a learning tool, and a transformational vehicle.  I often encounter books that change my perspective and open my eyes in unexpected ways.

          The books I have included in this list have done just that.  They may be classified under the self-development or self-help category, but they are not what you expect.  Some offer profanity, humor, and even cynicism, and others offer spirituality, but they all provide the possibility for transformation.

          3 Essential Oils That Aid High Blood Pressure

          Hypertension or high blood pressure (HBP) is a chronic condition in which blood pressure is elevated above its normal range of 120 mm Hg of systolic pressure or above 80 mm Hg of diastolic pressure.

          HBP is often asymptomatic and requires blood pressure readings in order to be identified.  However, it can cause nose bleeding, headaches, a red or flushed face, dizziness, fatigue, nervousness, insomnia, blurred vision, fluid retention, and shortness of breath (Marieb & Hoehn, 2013).

           

          Treatment for HBP involves lifestyle changes, although other types of support, such as the use of aromatherapy, can be beneficial.  Here are 3 essential oils that can aid with HBP.

        • July 30, 2018 What is an Eating Disorder?
          What is an Eating Disorder?

          I recently got an email from Emily Z, a 14-year old who is aspiring to be a mental health professional.  She alerted me to an informative webpage on eating disorders.

          Emily’s enthusiasm inspired me to look more into the topic, especially in how it relates to teenagers since they are more susceptible to develop them.  I have however, also included some information about how eating disorders affect adults.

          An eating disorder happens when a person develops an unhealthy relationship with food and can involve under eating and/or over eating.  Often, eating disorders are associated with distorted body image (Maryville University, n.d.).

          There is no identifiable cause for eating disorders, although there are factors that have been linked with eating disorders. I will explain these here, as well as possible treatment options.  I will start by explaining the more common eating disorders.
