        • April 23, 2018 3 Reasons to Use Lemon Balm
          3 Reasons to Use Lemon Balm

          Lemon balm or Melissa officinalis is one of my favorite herbs. It belongs to the Lamiaceae or mint family.  It was given its common name because when the leaves of the plant are rubbed together, it produces a lemon scent.

          Lemon balm is native to Europe, the Mediterranean, and Asia, and was used in ancient Greek and Roman times to help dress surgical wounds and treat bites and stings from snakes (American Botanical Council (ABC), 2013). It was also used to improve memory, as a sedative to treat sleep disorders, and to alleviate gastrointestinal conditions (ABC, 2013).

          Other than this list of benefits, here are 3 specific reasons to use lemon balm.

        • April 16, 2018 Low Thyroid Function? Pay Attention to These Foods
          Low Thyroid Function? Pay Attention to These Foods

          According to the American Thyroid Association (n.d.), about 20 million people in the United States have a thyroid condition.  Women are more likely than men to develop a thyroid condition.  It is also more common for a thyroid condition to develop later in life.

          I have had low thyroid function, also known as hypothyroidism, for over 10 years.  Common symptoms include low metabolic rate, difficulty in losing weight, feeling cold, feeling tired or lethargic, hair loss, and dry skin, although there can be others.

          Since I was first diagnosed, I have researched thyroid function and different factors that affect it.  Keep in mind that every person is different, and what works for one person may not work for all of us.  In general, there are certain foods that people with hypothyroidism should pay attention to.

          Before I tell you about these foods, I’ll tell you about the thyroid gland, and provide you with more information about hypothyroidism.

        • April 09, 2018 Why Forgiveness is Important for Healing
          Why Forgiveness is Important for Healing

          Often, we think of forgiveness as something we do for the other person- the one who caused us hurt or harm.  But, forgiveness does not have anything to do with them. Whether or not we forgive them, their lives are not likely to change.  But, ours are.  Forgiveness is something we do for ourselves.

          Forgiveness means we are freeing ourselves from holding on to feelings and emotions that no longer serve us.  We do it so that we may feel more peace and calm.

          I have been focusing on forgiveness over the past year, and I wanted to share with you some of the lessons I learned through the process.

          Parasites? Try These Herbs

          Most of us think that parasites that affect our human digestive system are common only in developing countries.  But, according to the CDC or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, millions of people are affected by parasitic infections in the United States every year (CDC, 2017).

          Symptoms can be serious, and include abdominal ache and/or pain, loss of appetite, bloating, diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, gas, nausea, rash or itchiness around the anal area, restlessness, sleep deprivation or difficulty sleeping, blood or mucus in stools, vomiting, and/or weight loss.  The symptoms vary, but they cause a great amount of discomfort and pain.

          I will share more information about these parasites, as well as anthelmintic herbs that can be used to support their elimination.  Anthelmintic herbs expel worms and parasites from the body.
