  • Essential Oils

    10553367_902215623176760_8276173517395990179_nEssential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants with tremendous healing properties. Using essential oils for healing purposes is often called aromatherapy which is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental and emotional health.

    For over 5,000 years, many different cultures have used these healing plant oils for a variety of health conditions. They are often used for relaxation, beauty care, home cleaning and most often used as natural medicine.

    Essential oils are extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed or root of a plant or tree and just one drop can have powerful health benefits.

    They are typically created through the process of distillation which separates the oil and water based compounds of a plant by steaming.

    Essential oils are highly concentrated oils that have a strong aroma. By concentrating the oils of these plants you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil.

    Just adding some of the most common essential oils like lavender, frankincense, lemon, peppermint and tea tree oil to your natural medicine cabinet can:

    Fight cold and flu symptoms
    Relax your body and soothe sore muscles
    Heal skin conditions
    Alleviate pain
    Balance hormones
    Improve digestion
    Reduce cellulite and wrinkles
    Clean your home
    Used in homemade personal care products ...

  • Camu Camu

    14517511_1224892374242415_460257604758422171_nThe camu camu berry is quickly gaining popularity as a top super fruit variety sourced from one of the most nutritionally dense regions of the world, the nutrient-rich soils of the Amazon rainforest, a virtual treasure chest of many superfoods and herbs.

    Camu camu berry is famed for its substantially high levels of vitamin C, ranking far above other botanical sources and super berries.
    Camu powder is extremely concentrated. It takes approximately one hundred pounds of berries to produce four pounds of dried powder. Compared to other vitamin C sources, quality camu berry powders also contain no fillers, preservatives or artificial ingredients, just pure straight freeze dried fruit concentrate.
    Some of the most interesting benefits of camu camu include its ability to boost the immune system, protect against chronic diseases, reduce inflammation, detoxify the body, prevent viral infections, reduce mood swings, promote eye health, protect the sexual organ system, and prevent cognitive disorders.

    Health Benefits of Camu Camu:
    Cognitive Ability
    Anti-Inflammatory Activity
    Cancer Prevention
    Mood Swings
    Antiviral and Antibacterial Properties
    Fertility
    Muscle Tone
    Vision Health
    Digestion

    The camu berry is best known for its unusually high vitamin C content. Vitamin C, as you may know, has many uses for preventing chronic disease. Natural (not synthetic) vitamin C is an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage to the DNA of the cells throughout your body, which helps in the prevention of cancer and heart disease (among other health problems).

    Vitamin C also prevents colds and even the flu. It is a huge immune system booster and an all-around power-packed vitamin - but only in its full-spectrum natural form.

    There's no food on the planet with a higher concentration of vitamin C than the camu berry.

  • Moringa oleifera

    14522746_1222034351194884_4111510737831347969_n
    is a plant that has been praised for its health benefits for thousands of years. Almost all parts of the Moringa oleifera tree can be eaten or used as ingredients in traditional herbal medicines.
    The real mystery is how this four thousand year-old panacea plant went missing and disappeared from the nutritional horizon. Fortunately it has reappeared. As a matter of fact, the Bethesda, Maryland-based International Eye Foundation is now using Moringa, with its high content of beta-carotene, converting to Vitamin A in the body, to combat childhood blindness. Doctors are using Moringa oleifera to treat diabetes in West Africa and high blood pressure in India.
    Interestingly, several studies have shown that Moringa oleifera may help lower blood sugar levels.
    Moringa Oleifera is Rich in Antioxidants - Antioxidants are compounds that act against free radicals in our bodies.
    Moringa oleifera is a tree brought from the mind of God to the hands of man. It was recognized by the National Institutes of Health as the Botanical of the Year for 2007, and praised again in 2011 and 2012. It is valued worldwide for its ability to treat over 300 diseases. It has the ability to retain high concentrations of electrolyte minerals, allowing it to stay internally hydrated in the driest of conditions.

    This amazing tree is capable of delivering what the body needs and these enzymatically active amino acid sequences may simply not exist in the food chain anywhere else, and that is just the tip of the nutritional iceberg when it comes to Moringa oleifera.

  • Artichoke

    14524381_1216107811787538_4457461648831529568_oArtichoke is a truly healing plant.
    The leaf, stem, and root are used to make “extracts” which contain a high concentration of certain chemicals found in the plant. These extracts are used as medicine.People love to eat artichokes. What’s not to love? From the leaves to the heart, artichokes are simply delicious. However, you might not be aware of the humble artichoke’s position as a nutrient powerhouse and the amazing health benefits you can have simply by adding this veggie to your diet.

    Anthocyanins, quercetin, rutin, and many other antioxidants contained in fresh artichokes offer a range of health benefits ranging from cancer prevention and immune support to protection against heart disease.
    Artichoke is used to stimulate the flow of bile from the liver, and this is thought to help reduce the symptoms of heartburn and alcohol “hangover.” Artichoke is also used for high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), kidney problems, anemia, fluid retention (edema), arthritis, bladder infections, and liver problems.

    The longer, serrated, “true” leaves found along the stem of the plant are dried to make artichoke tea. Artichoke tea has a grassy, vegetal flavor and can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels. In general, however, the health benefits of artichoke tea require further long-term, human study.

    Making Artichoke Tea
    You can purchase artichoke leaf tea in ethnic and health food stores, where the tea is often sold in bags. Use one bag for every 8 ounces of boiling water. With loose-leaf tea, use 1 1/2 teaspoons for every 8 ounces. Because artichoke leaf tea has a natural bitterness, adding some honey or other sugar to sweeten the tea is common. You can also mix the leaves with loose leaf green tea to temper the taste. Iced artichoke tea is common in Southeast Asian diets, especially in Vietnamese culture where the tea is sometimes prepared with other herbs, sweetened and then served chilled.
