Benefits Of Dark Chocolate: 2

March 20th, 2010

dark-chocolateNow that we have discussed dark chocolate and how it is healthy for you, let’s figure out how exactly chocolate is healthy for you!  For one, dark chocolate is actually jam-packed with an antioxidant called phenol, which actually has a lot of positive effects on your blood pressure and can actually increase the nitric oxide which trims down your aggregation and will help lower your LDL cholesterol.

Another cool thing about dark chocolate is the fact that it can actually increase a person’s insulin sensitivity, which is good.  You can also increase your attention span, which is something that a lot of people need, especially in this day and age.

You want chocolate that is good for you all around?  Make sure that you opt for dark chocolate versus milk!

Natural Black Eye Treatments: 1

February 12th, 2010


All right guys, so I am going to share something personal with you … I fell down the stairs this past weekend.  Sunday, I took a tumble down on top of a bunch of laundry and I definitely bruised not just my hand, thigh, calf and head but I bruised my eye.  When I woke up this morning, I have a black eye.

So – that lead me to these next few posts.  What does cure a black eye naturally or at least what helps speed up the process?  That is what the next couple blogs are for and that is what we are going to talk about.  One of the first things that helps are tea compresses – honestly, place a teabag on your black eye and in no time at all, it should go down.

In the next blog, we will talk about what specific teas will help you with your black eye (and thank god for that!) … stay tuned!

The second principle that you need to remember is that the remedy is to be taken in a much diluted form – and the minimal dose.  You never want to OD when you are dealing with homeopathy.  Finally, the third principle is single remedy.

Skin Tags, Deal With Them Naturally: 2

November 28th, 2009


Now that we have talked about one of the ways that you can get rid of pesky skin tags, let’s go ahead and dive right into another one.  To be perfectly honest, skin tags are nothing that you really need to worry about – they are however something that you should get rid of.

One great way that I found is duct tape.  Duct tape is something that I have found that not only works great but it is pretty painless.  All you do is apply the duct tape over the skin tag … let it sit and you will see just how easy it comes off!

Skin tags are unsightly and not something that you really want to deal with – however you do not have to have any chemicals to get them off.
