August 31st, 2009

Aromatherapy oilsIf you are one of those people are sore all of the time – there this is a blog that you need to read.  I know that I work on the computer a heck of a lot and my shoulders tend to get really, really tense and sore most of the time.  Know what I use to ease that pain in my shoulders?  Aromatherapy oils are something that have helped me so much – however many people simply do not know how to use them.

Aromatherapy oils are fantastic for use whenever you are getting a massage as they can be used to regain your energy and truly melt away your pain.  Many Aromatherapy oils can actually be placed right on the skin and the essential oils can head their way into the blood stream in order to maintain physical and mental soundness.

These oils, while expensive are certainly worth it in every way possible.  Just bring them over to your massage therapist and they will absolutely relieve your pain for you!

What Can Aromatherapy Really Do for You?

August 13th, 2009

aromatherapyYou have no doubt at least heard about aromatherapy, but many people are not quite sure what its purpose really is, in spite of the fact that it is widely considered a holistic healing method. Even those who practice more conventional types of medicine accept that aromatherapy can be beneficial.

But what is it? Well, it is considered to be either a treatment or the prevention of disease, depending on whether or not you are already afflicted. It works by using your olfactory senses. Plant oils and other essential oils are primarily used, mainly for one’s physical and psychological well being. They are helpful when you inhale them and when they are applied right to the skin.

The idea is that pleasant scents will have a positive effect on the brain in general and the limbic system in particular.

As well, the oils themselves are believed to be therapeutic. They can be antiviral, antiseptic, antifungal, anti inflammatory, and antibacterial.

The Truth about Acai Berries

August 11th, 2009

acai-berryIf you ever get spam mail, find yourself bothered by pop ups, or watch late night infomercials — and even some more legitimate talk shows — then you have heard of acai berries. They have been touted as modern day miracles, able to give you tons of energy and make you lose a lot of weight fast — but “naturally,” of course, which seems like a bit of a dichotomy.

So what are these so called miracle berries? Well, by all in depth accounts, they are not going to help you lose weight fast and in a healthy matter. Any fast weight loss is frankly not healthy, by virtue of the fact that losing weight too fast simply is not healthy for your body. Are they aphrodisiacs? Well, they may make some folks randy, but they are certainly not a miraculous cure for everyone’s waning libido. Will they cure cancer, diabetes, and other serious illnesses? Not so much, no, at least not in the manner they are currently being used.

So beware and do some hardcore research before subscribing to this particular “miracle.”

Why Wheat Grass Is Good For You! Blog 2

August 6th, 2009

Wheat grassNow that we have talked about exactly what wheat grass is, it is now time to touch base on how you should eat it.  One of the most common ways lately of eating wheat grass is via juice bars and making the wheat into a juice.  However, you need to make sure that you cut the wheat grass fresh – otherwise you will not be getting all of the benefits of this incredible herb.

The great thing about wheat grass is that while it might not taste the best, there are so many different benefits; it does allow you to ignore the taste.  Wheat grass can help clear up skin, improve your digestive track, removes heavy metals, restores function of the liver and washes out stimulants and drugs that could still be in your body – it also eliminates body odors, which is always a plus.

Wheat grass is good all around and if you are looking for a way to truly help your body health-wise, you should invest in some wheat grass!

One of the first things that you need to know is what wheat grass really is – well, it is actually a young wheat plant.  Instead of allowing the wheat plant to grow into wheat, we actually harvest it much earlier in order to extract its juice and make it into wheat grass shots.  Wheat grass can honestly help a slew of things in your health – everything from cancer all the way to heart disease.

In the next blog, we are going to talk about how to eat wheat grass and when is the best time to eat it!
