Tim Horton's Peppermint Tea

A Word to the Wise - Health is Wealth

These are the days of added, unnecessary ingredients in everything that's prepared and packaged for our consumption.  It has now also reached ordinary herbal teas.  Why is it that peppermint tea needs to have any flavor added to it?  Peppermint is a very strong flavor on its own and would hardly need enhancing by any natural or artificial in flavor.  Is it that we have become so addicted to adding ingredients that we have become helpless and must add these natural and artificial flavors to everything?

It is becoming quite alarming that the incidences of certain specific conditions are on the rise every year.  Certain heart conditions used to be uncommon that are now more prevalent and actually very common.  If you suffer from any heart condition suddenly, it may be wise to check out what you are eating.  The saying "you are what you eat" is not just some old wife's tale but very true.

It may be a wise idea to keep a list of the foods you eat for about a month and then set about to change that list and watch to see if you can observe any changes in your health.  Some people are very sensitive to natural and artificial flavors as some are to MSG and metabisulphite, an ingredient in shredded coconut and in so-called naturally canned coconut water.

However, getting back to Tim Horton's peppermint tea.  The list of ingredients in those tea bags should be made public so that sensitive individuals can choose more wisely and not suffer the consequences of consuming an additive that may impact their health negatively.

There's another saying "that one man's medicine is another's poison" - don't let this be a true saying for you the next time you drink a cup of tea at Tim Horton's restaurant.

How to Prevent High Blood Pressure

How to Prevent Heart Disease

The painless, easy way to keep your heart ticking and your blood pressure normal without high blood pressure medication. If you have had to use high blood pressure medication for up to a year but want to discover and use herbal medicine, I would highly recommend the  protocol outlined below to keep your blood pressure normal and avoid anymore medication.

Garlic is an old herb used by man for hundred of years.  It also benefits your immune and circulatory systems and will help normalize your blood pressure while keeping your blood thin without having to take blood thinners and endure nasty side effects.

Capsicum is spicy (hot) herb that promotes blood flow to the extremities.  It contains many valuable nutrients such as vitamins A, B and C with iron and calcium.  Even though it is hot it actually does no harm the lining of your stomach. It also stimulates your digestive juices and is considered to be a nervine herb which is of great benefit to a healthy heart rhythm.

Hawthorn berry or leaves can be bitter but is famous in Europe as a heart stimulant.  It will also assist your body in strengthening all the heart's tissues and is considered to be a heart tonic by many herbalists. This herb is adaptogenic in that it has the ability to dilate and help the body open up constricted blood vessels.  This is how it can help to lower blood pressure since constricted blood vessels will increase blood pressure automatically.  Dilated blood vessels will allow and increase blood flow to your heart.

These three herbs that are readily available everywhere can benefit your heart and your health without breaking the bank, causing you any inconvenience and if used every day will become habit forming with very good results.

Parasitic Uterine Fibroids

I started a parasite cleanse after I was attempting to clear a block naturally and found critters in my stool. I have been at it since May 2012 and there's no evidence that I am clean or free of these monsters - is this normal, can a parasite cleanse take this long?

I now believe that I must have some in my uterus too. I've noticed something move in my belly more than once and I have passed what I believe to lung flukes encased in a cocoon. What if the one's in my uterus are also encased there? I have suffered with heavy bleeding throughout my menstrual cycle, frequently passing clots.

I am now menopausal with a number of issues that I am convinced were related to the fact that I had these critters living in for a good while. I've read that you can tell how long by the color. For example, if there are a lot of green, they've been in liver for a while.

Does anyone know which herbs in particular will run them out of the uterus? I've recently passed several heart worms after a 24-minute soak in a herbal concoction I created to try to by-pass the liver and get directly into my blood stream. This was a lucky decision because it yielded these results.

Any thoughts on this, comments or suggestions and/or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Obesity: Importance of Diet and Exercise

First Lady Michelle Obama has been criticized  by some people, for wanting to tell us what to eat. The truth be told, we are eating ourselves to death at a very early age or perhaps earlier age. Doesn't it worry you that kids as young as 12-years old are being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes? Do you not realize that this disease usually strikes people well over 40-years old?

These are troubling signs that need to be addressed and we ought to be glad that the First Lady was bold enough to highlight this issue of obesity and offer some alternatives for our children and the parents of these kids. From an impartial standpoint, the object is to show by examples that we can make better choices for our kids and we can seek to make them more active.

Kids Can Benefit from Culture Change

Today's generation is the one that sits in front of the computer and TV for many hours and spends very little time outdoors. Fun for a lot of kids come from video games instead of playing soccer, running, baseball, swimming and other outdoor activities. We need to set boundaries for our children - how many hours of video game playing vs. time spent outside in the park, at the gym, playing basketball and other things that kids also love to do.

We need to provide help to poor families such as advice on diet, how to prepare nutritious meals, tips on how to shop for fruit and vegetables without having to increase the family's food budget. Rather than criticizing, we need to look at the many options we have. Introduce home economics in our schools so that children can be taught about food and nutrition so they are more aware about the importance of food, preparation and consumption.

Are you lost in the kitchen, this Natural Diet Guide is full of tips, tricks and recipes for the price of a MacDonald's happy meal?  Get it for only five bucks on Backpage.

Can Parasites Impact Your Health

Parasites in Galore

This is a question I have had to ask myself as I start to develop a poor state of health in spite of exercising and eating all the right food. Then one day, I stumbled on the idea that maybe I needed to clear out and clean out my system.

I started to do this cleanse and then I decided I would observe what I was passing in my stools, just to be curious. Wow, was I so surprised at what I saw in my stools! My eyes widened in amazement and I thought what are all these things and where were they hiding? I hope I don't gross out my readers with this but worse things are shown in movies and on CNN, so lighten up - the truth must be told - cleanse.

Then it became a perils in my food chain regimen that I continued to do for several months. All the while, I was searching and looking at samples of what was being passed everyday. I decided to take a visual log so I would have proof for myself perhaps to gossip about with close friends or show to my health care providers and for any non-believers that may exist.

The old saying is "seeing is believing". Take a look for yourself at what I was seeing at each passing of a stool, sometimes twice a day. Would these parasites not impact your health?

What is Acid Reflux

Acid Reflux or GERD is a very common condition in which the liquid content of the stomach backs up into the esophagus. The valve that separates the stomach from the esophagus does not close properly and this allows stomach acid to flow back causing what is often described as "heartburn".

What an oxymoron I thought when a friend told me recently that she was told that apparently there's no acid involved in "acid reflux"!

It is becoming very worrisome at how health care professionals are either misleading or giving inaccurate information to their patients. Is this a symptom of society or is it the way that new doctors are being trained?

Elizabeth Cohen, CNN health correspondent wrote a book "how to be a bad patient" although this may not even be the exact title of the book. After a horrible experience involving her mother's kidneys, she was inspired to write the book to advocate patient empowerment.

It seems that nowadays it is advisable to remember that you are the owner of the body and you need to learn how it works and be able to recognize when it is not working at its optimum. In other words, know some basic things about your body and educate yourself about various diseases, their causes and suggested treatments.
