        • June 18, 2018 How Do We Get Vitamins from Our Diet?
          How Do We Get Vitamins from Our Diet?

          I wrote about vitamins back in December, and I explained the different kinds of vitamins.  I also shared with you that if we are relatively healthy, I do not believe we need to take vitamins tablets or other supplements.  Instead, we can get the vitamins we need from our daily diet.

          Recently, I came across 16 Best, a website that specializes on doing research on a myriad of products from clothing and travel to food items.  They curate the internet to find the best options available, and vitamins was one of the topics they wrote about.

          The snapshot of the infographic above is included in its entirety below.  It goes through the vitamins we consume, their uses, signs to know if we are deficient, and natural sources where we can find them.  You will have to scroll down a bit below to see the wealth of information they provide on each of the vitamins.  I do recommend you look at it as it provides succinct, yet valuable information.  The image is courtesy of 16 Best.

          Here is some more about what they have to say.

        • June 11, 2018 Common Ailments and Simple Remedies
          Common Ailments and Simple Remedies

          Most of us have experience with inflammation, lymphedema, and vertigo.  These are common ailments that can come up on their own, as a consequence of an illness, or as a symptom of an illness.  In addition, most babies experience seborrhea or cradle cap.

          It is easy to find medications to treat these conditions, but there are also ways to treat them naturally.  I will start by describing each of these conditions, and then give some simple and even nature-based remedies to incorporate.

          How Pine Essential Oils Could be the Key to Arthritis Support

          Arthritis means inflammation of the joints.  It is a debilitating disease that results in swelling, stiffness, and pain due to the destruction of cartilage, bone, and/or synovial fluid around the joints.  Causes of arthritis are varied, and can be due to wear and tear, infections, autoimmune conditions, or other conditions.  There are different types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

          We often think that arthritis is a symptom of us getting older, but arthritis can strike at any time. I have known people in their 20s who suffer from arthritis, although it is more typical to see arthritis in older adults.

          Arthritis is not believed to be curable, and treatment is typically focused on alleviating symptoms.

          Essential oils from the pine family or the Pineaceae family, can provide great support for arthritis.  I will tell you about these oils, but first start by sharing some information about joint development and health.

        • May 28, 2018 2 Astringent Herbs That Regulate Body Secretions
          2 Astringent Herbs That Regulate Body Secretions

          Astringent herbs take action in the body by contracting soft tissues to stop or reduce blood, mucus, or other discharges.  The specific effect depends on the particular herb used, how the herb is administered and how strong its astringent effect is.

          Mostly all astringent herbs coagulate albumin or blood proteins, tone muscles, contract veins and gland ducts, slow down peristalsis or contractions in organs, and reduce excess salivation.  Stronger astringent herbs stop diarrhea and hemorrhaging.  The herbs with this latter effect are called styptics.  Milder astringent herbs reduce excessive perspiration and enlarged pores by toning and contracting the skin and glands.

          In other words, astringent herbs help us tighten and tone our body.  Two effective astringent herbs are witch hazel Hamamelis virginiana, and cranesbill Geranium maculatum.  I will tell you more about them here, and let you know ways in which you can use them.
