The Important Healing Benefits of Bitters

By: Colleen LeeAnn Meheen

Healing Bitters Drink RecipeThe old saying “you have to take the bitter with the sweet,” may have deeper meaning than first thought. For thousands of years the healing group of bitter herbs has helped promote keep bodily functions and can now help balance the ill effects of American diets that are often too focused on sweets. Bitter herbal remedies can vary, but commonly utilize naturally cleansing herbs traditional to liver and blood cleansing. Some examples are Dandelion, Blessed Thistle, Artichoke, Orange Peel, Yarrow, Gentian, Fennel, Ginger, Chamomile and Wormwood.

You can utilize any or all of these herbs in a variety of ways. From teas, tinctures, capsules, elixirs or tablets, you can enjoy the benefits that bitters offer in whatever way you find to be most convenient and effective.

These bitter formulas that are often used in the dietary supplements you see on your health food grocery store shelves, have been recipes passed down throughout the ages. The 19th century apothecaries utilized the powerful intestinal comforting benefits of these bitters in cocktails and mixed drinks. Throughout the ages, these bitters found their way into many drink concoctions and medicinal configurations to help prepare the palette and digestive system for optimal digestion.

Many bitter herbs provide ample anti-inflammatory properties, to help relieve bloating and swelling within the body. Not only this, but orange peel and dandelion also assist the body in lowering blood pressure and helps balance cholesterol, boosting your healthy cholesterol levels. Dandelion also assists in balancing the bodies’ chemistry to help reduce or even eliminate the factors that cause acne, and can help reduce the symptoms of PMS. One bitter herb particularly, called Fennel, provides ample benefits in digestion, along with its natural ability to help reduce anxiety, respiratory issues and depression.

Bitter herb solutions are ideal for those that want to digest their foods optimally or have issues digesting and assimilating food well. Organic solutions are widely available, and can be enjoyed before large meals to support an easy digestive follow up. Two products worth checking out include NatureWorks Swedish Bitters and Herbal Bitters from Urban Moonshine.

We love NatureWorks Swedish Bitters because of the healing history of the product. In fact, NatureWorks Swedish Bitters has been utilized by millions of Europeans and is a favorite herbal elixir.

Herbal Bitters from Urban Moonshine is gaining a powerful reputation for producing a quality product that makes a healthy difference. It inspires your body’s own production of digestive juices and enzymes and helps keep healthy blood sugar levels in the normal range.

How many times have you had a mini freakout when you have guests over and they head to your bathroom?! Yes, probably everyone has experienced a sense of dread when faced with their medicine cabinet contents being exposed to the outside world. Why is it that this cabinet can be the one place in the home that is a complete, unorganized disaster? While the obvious explanation is that it is often filled with clutter causing products, there can be psychological component making us hold on to expired medicines and old lotions that we will never use again. For instance, sometimes we hold onto medicine cabinet products because of a strange sense of “needing them later” when we haven’t used these products for months…or even years!

Three Natural Travel Essentials to Keep You Healthy While You’re Away!

We all know how hectic it can be when you are getting ready for a trip. Between planning who is going to take care of the pets to making sure that you don’t forget to pack the right clothes, sometimes the very basic things we need to ensure a wonderful holiday get left behind. How many times have you been on the plane and suddenly remembered that you forgot something important?

But, what if you didn’t even KNOW that you are missing a travel essential that can make your trip better and even protect your health while you are away?

The Most Important Component of a Great Trip is How You Feel!

While travel gadgets are cool, how can you enjoy your trip if you aren’t feeling well? Those cool headphones won’t help you overcome a bad case of indigestion!

Thankfully, we found three natural products to help ensure that you are up to speed in Sydney or happily backpacking in Burma. Check out these three must-pack natural travel essentials to protect your health!

DiaResQ

DiaResQ REALLY is to the rescue! It is the first product of its kind that effectively reaches the intestinal tract and helps to restore normal function. It is different because it helps address the underlying issue of indigestion and not JUST the symptoms. Plus, it is safe for kids as young as one year of age. And since 70% of travelers and backpackers experience some sort of travelers diarrhea, this is definitely a product to have handy. In fact, tummy trouble is the number one travel related illness AND it certainly ruins all the fun.

No one wants to “sit this one out” (literally) while on a glorious vacation because of a rumbling stomach!

Best of all, this product isn’t a drug, but rather a food made from naturally derived ingredients that reach the intestine to rapidly support normal function. WHAT you say? Yes, this is a unique product that is really a game changer when it comes to wellness!

21 Drops Headache Relief

This ISN’T your average essential oil blend! This concentrated blend of Lavender, Peppermint, Ho Wood and Jojoba feels like something from the future every time you apply it to your temples. Why? The steel rollerball  provides antimicrobial benefits (so you can share), the premium glass vial helps to preserve the oils and the silicone protective sleeve makes it travel-friendly.

Best of all, it really works to help to ease head pain and pressure and it is TSA friendly. We especially love to use it on the plane if the cabin pressure is getting to us!

The Lost Explorer Traveler’s Protection Balm

We’ve been lost many times, but never thought to develop a great balm along the way. DARN IT! Well, even though these folks beat us to it, this balm is really…the bomb. OK, ok, seriously though, once you experience it you’ll be hooked. The careful blend of Ravensara Oil, Camphor Leaf Oil, and Eucalyptus Leaf Oil really help to relax, restore and protect. Just smelling it feels healing to the body!

Not many people know about Ravensara Oil, but as a botanical it is one of the most protective in the world.

In fact, the meaning of the word Ravensara translates to “good leaf” which pretty much sums it up. Look, the ancient people didn’t play, if they named something “good leaf” it was like the very best leaf…EVER. Now, thankfully this amazing leaf comes in a handy travel balm you can take with you wherever you go! YES!

Pure Body Extra Strength
Concerned about the rising levels of toxins in our lives? You’re right. We’re surrounded by chronic chemical exposure and many of these chemicals are toxic over time.

Zeolite (Clinoptilolite) is nature’s natural detoxifier, working like a magnet to attract and trap positively-charged toxins such as mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic and more.

Is Zeolite the Key to an Effective Detox?

We know what you are thinking…what in the heck is zeolite and how can this help me detox more efficiently? When we think of detoxing, we often think of changing our eating or drinking patterns to remove harmful substances in the body.

However, when we detox we don’t think of the chemicals that are actually STUCK in our bodies that won’t be removed by typical detox efforts. This is why sometimes it feels like traditional detoxing is not getting us anywhere…and it can be very difficult to commit to a detox diet.

Let’s Face It – Traditional Detoxing Can Feel Horrible!

Often when we are detoxing, we are radically restricting or changing our food intake which is hard on our mood and energy. Also, just like clockwork it seems like something extremely fun always happens right in the middle of a detox. It’s like “oh you just got VIP tickets to Kendrick Lamar? Sorry, I’m in the middle of this detox and I guess I just am going to stay in my room and cry tonight…” Seriously, why do the most amazing invites always seem to pop up during a detox?!

Thus, just like you we are all for learning and sharing ways to detox that feature the GAIN, without any of the common detox PAIN. This is one reason that we were so thrilled to learn about zeolite

What is Zeolite?

Zeolite is a collection of microporous minerals commonly used as adsorbents AND it has the scientific research to back it up. In fact, research shows it selectively binds to toxins including mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, radioactive particles and volatile organic compounds.

The challenge is that in its raw form, zeolite can’t be absorbed by the body. That is why it’s important to find a supplement that will enable the body to recognize and utilize it in order to give you the detoxing effect. People have shared amazing stories about how zeolite detoxing has worked for them including helping with immunity, allergies and overall wellbeing.

Zeolite as a Liquid

This liquid zeolite suspension is 100% natural, non-GMO, non-toxic, vegetarian and safe for long-term use to support your well-being.

 

Zeolite as a Powder

It’s also possible to find Zeolite in a powder form that you can mix easily in your morning shakes.

Zeolite in Capsules

Zeolite is also available in capsule form.

Please note: Consult your doctor before starting any supplement, this is for information only and is NOT medical advice.

How I Attracted Love, Protection and Success with Crystals

By: Chelsea Vurciaga

Few know about crystal healing, yet those who use crystals to heal and attract good things into their lives report powerful experiences. If this is something that interests you, approach it with an open mind and you might be surprised at the positive results. While using crystals may feel foreign to Westerners, it’s something that people throughout the world have been doing for thousands of years.

This article is a results of my personal success using the crystal Rose Quartz. This story demonstrates the power of crystal healing and might make you want to delve further into the possibilities of using crystals in your own life. The story goes like this: Around 20 years ago I went to a crystal shop and decided to purchase two matching rose quartz crystals. I was attracted to rose quartz because of its connection with love and self fulfillment. For some unknown reason I felt that I had to purchase two identical carved rose quartz stones. This was a feeling that I had that I couldn’t really explain.

After purchasing the stones for a small amount of money I soon forgot about them and carelessly packed them while moving to different apartments throughout the years until I could no longer remember where I had put them. Since the crystals weren’t expensive, it was of little concern to me. Eventually, I forgot about them completely.

Then nearly a decade later I was involved in a horrible accident that could have easily taken my life, but I miraculously escaped, nearly unscathed. While cleaning out my totaled car, I discovered one of the rose quartz crystals in the heaps of metal and broken glass. It was completely intact. This shocked me for a number of reasons, but mainly because I had four different cars throughout the ten years and never remembers placing the crystal in my car to begin with. Still, I soon forgot about the crystal again after putting it in a bag with other items from the crash.

Five more years passed and I was looking through my belongings and found the crystal I had placed in the bag after the crash. Suddenly, I was struck by a feeling that I needed the crystal and should hold onto it. I wondered what happened to the twin crystal I had purchased, but thought that it was long gone after so many years of not keeping track of it. This bothered me, since I had the feeling that I needed that crystal, too. I even went to a crystal shop to try and purchase another one, but couldn’t find a replacement. Then, as if guided by a force I can’t quite describe I stumbled upon an old purse I hadn’t carried in a number of years way, way, WAY in the back of my closet and inside was the matching crystal.

When I held the two crystals together for the first time in several years, I had a strong feeling of love and peace that is hard to describe. I felt like they were somehow protecting me all these years and I didn’t even realize it. I also felt like I could use them together to help me find what I was looking for in my life. Sometimes when I am looking for an answer, I hold them in my hands and the answer comes to me. This has led to new career success. Also, recently I’ve met new people who have brought a lot of love and opportunity into my life. They say that you can never really lose a crystal, and they will come to you when you need them and now I truly believe that.

Now, I have several different crystals and use them as a part of my daily life. You will see various crystal kits for sale on this site at special prices that will enable you to experiment with crystals and find your own love, money and success.

WATCH: Crystals and Stones to Attract Love and Romance

Are you looking for crystals and stones to attract love and romance? Check out one of our most popular segments on how to use crystals and stones to attract someone special into your life.

How Do Crystals Work?
If you are skeptical, you might be wondering how it is possible for crystals to have any effect on your life. Besides the fact that crystals have been used for thousands of years, one clear indication of their power is the piezoelectric effect. Namely if you squeeze certain crystals, like quartz, electricity will flow through them. This is how the quartz movement in watches works. The piezoelectric effect or piezoelectricity is the voltage or charge across the crystal when you subject it to mechanical squeezing, which makes quartz watches run. While this explanation may sound complicated, in basic terms it just means that quartz emits energy that can be used. This explanation gives us a window into understanding the potential of crystals to conduct energy, which may be the key to the power of using them to attract what we want.

Crystals Specifically for Romance
One of the main reasons that people turn to crystals is to use them to attract their soulmate. It is thought that crystals can help us remove the blocks that are standing in the way to finding true love. Many of us have been hurt by past relationships and find it hard to connect to other people. Crystals can help to clear the energy path to love by cleansing hurt emotions. Crystals and stones can also serve as a beckon to draw the right person to you. After all, we are all made of energy so it makes sense that we can raise our energy to attract what we want.

Must-Dos When Using Crystals
Since most crystals and stones can hold energy, it is vital to clear them for your own personal use. To do so, simply give them a cleansing bath in sea salt or place them under the moonlight in your yard. Make sure to say an intention over the crystal or stone that it is to be cleared for your own personal use. Another interesting thing is that crystals that are meant for you will never be lost. Even if you continue to misplace a crystal that is good for you, you will continue to find it among your things again and again. In the same regard, a crystal that is not meant for you will be easily lost and you will never find it again. When choosing the right crystals for you, go with your intuition and hold the crystal to your chest. If it feels like it is pulling you forward it is a good match.

 

The Dangers of Undercooked Beans

It’s always a shock to learn that something considered healthy—like beans—can pose risks that are not widely known. You may be surprised to learn that several types of everyday beans can make you sick if not cooked thoroughly. In fact, consuming undercooked beans can lead to abdominal complaints, like vomiting, diarrhea and gas, and even hospitalization in rare cases.

Cooking beans properly is vital because beans contain natural insecticides in their core. The chemical found at the center of beans is often referred to as lectin or phytohaemagglutinin and must be cooked in order to neutralize. This chemical is found in various concentrations depending on the bean type. The highest concentration of lectin is found in red kidney beans.

So why do people often consume undercooked beans? The reason is simple—we smell the delicious aromas coming from our crockpots and we don’t want to wait out the full cooking process. However, it’s fairly simple to check if your beans are cooked properly.

Remember that soaking beans before cooking can help make them more digestible (although I never remember to soak them!) and when you think that they are done check to make sure they are fork tender. Undercooked beans will often have a chalky consistency and will feel too firm under your fork. Also, you can take a spoonful of beans out of your cooker and blow on them. If the skin on the beans’ wrinkle and then start to peel, they are most likely cooked properly. You will also notice on that the skin on properly cooked beans looks a tad loose in appearance.

If you feel like you are experiencing poisoning from undercooked beans, please consult your physician as soon as possible. Luckily, most recover very quickly, but don’t wait if you feel you need immediate medical attention. Also, please note that sprouting beans has separate risks and challenges that are different from cooking beans. Thus, you want to follow completely different practices for sprouting vs. cooking and remember that only certain beans can be sprouted.

Ten Free Things You Can Do to Improve Your Health, Today

By: Dayna Copeland Schaef

Sometimes it may seem overwhelming and expensive to promote good health. Read our suggestions for the best things you can do to improve your health without spending a cent.

1. Drink Plenty of Water – Dehydration can cause a myriad of health issues, including: heartburn, ulcers, colitis, arthritis, allergies and even diabetes. Visit the water cooler once an hour to keep your body optimally hydrated and prevent headaches and energy deficits.

2. Soak up the Sun – Moderate sun exposure sans sunscreen can actually benefit your health. Catching a few rays every day can boost your vitamin D production, an essential nutrient for strong bones. Sunshine can also improve your mood and overall mental health.

3. Turn off the TV – A recent study suggests that watching large amounts of television has a direct connection to developing certain diseases like type 2 Diabetes, Heart disease and eventual early death. Turning off the television will prompt you to become more physically active, more productive and more interactive with your family and friends, all of which lead to better health.

4. Meditate – It is not necessary to take a meditation class, or to follow any certain format when meditating, just the act of sitting quietly, breathing deeply and looking inward for solitude can have incredible health benefits, including: reduced anxiety, increased energy, weight loss, increased mental sharpness and physical strength and much more.

5. Laugh – Whether you’re laughing at a funny joke, a funny face or, let’s be honest, a funny noise (and who can resist that,) getting a good chuckle can do wonders for a healthy body. Laughter relaxes your muscles, releasing endorphins, which are the “feel good” hormones that can even temporarily relieve pain.

6. Talk it Out – Internalizing issues can really eat away at your overall health, causing stress, unwanted weight gain/loss, insomnia, ulcers and increased blood pressure. Constant communication in your personal and professional relationships can really help you sleep at night.

7. Sleep In – Speaking of sleeping, getting a few extra minutes of rest can lead to a much better day, increasing your mental sharpness, memory and reaction/reflex time, and who doesn’t love to press snooze a few times.

8. Stretch – As soon as you get out of bed in the morning, and again, before you get back in it each night, a little light stretching can reduce aches and pains, prevent headaches and improve your overall mood.

9. Linger in a Hug – Intimate touch releases the “love hormone” oxytocin which increases a person’s mood, promotes healthy heart and blood circulation and reduces feelings of fear and anxiety.

10. Go For a Hike – Or a walk, or a bike ride, a swim, a jog or just jump around with your dog. Raising your heart rate for thirty minutes a day can help you maintain a healthy weight, improve your circulation, increase your endorphins and improve your heart’s health.
