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.

Parathyroid Imbalance Causes Anxiety and Depression

If you’re like us, you probably don’t think of your parathyroid glands very often…if ever. However, these pea shaped glands are very important to our overall health. An imbalance it can cause a host of problems including anxiety, lack of concentration, loss of energy, depression, high blood pressure, trouble sleeping, gastric reflux, headaches, osteoporosis and even mental instability.

So what does the parathyroid do and why is it important? The parathyroid glands are part of the Endocrine system. In short, they help to regulate calcium and phosphorus in the body. The work of the parathyroid helps to:

  • normalize blood clotting
  • promote bone and teeth health
  • increase cell membrane permeability
  • protect the health of the nervous system

It’s surprising that symptoms of a parathyroid issue can be anxiety and depression, however, this is not something that is normally discussed. Most likely, many of you reading this have never even considered that your parathyroid might be giving you trouble.

The most common problem people encounter with the parathyroid is hyperparathyroidism, or hyper-activity of the parathyroid glands which can produce a calcium imbalance. Thankfully, there are steps that you can take to help correct a parathyroid imbalance once you are aware that you have a problem. For instance, Kelp easy to find and is known to help feed the parathyroid.

Reduce Cancer Risk by up to 79 Percent by Changing One Simple Thing

When it comes to health strategies, often times we forget about the simple things that we can do to help improve our well-being. Thankfully, many of these options are easy and can be accomplished at little-to-no cost.  In fact, one of the simplest cancer prevention strategies is one that nearly everyone can do daily without much effort.

Obviously water is vital to our overall health, but how many times have you went almost an entire day without so much as a sip of liquids and then drink excessively after feeling a strong sense of thirst? If so, you could be chronically dehydrated and putting your health at risk. Not many people realize it, but drinking enough fluids each day is one of the most important things we can do to look and feel our best. In fact, proper water and fluid consumption can help ease back and joint pain, boost metabolism and even reduce cancer risk by up to 79%!

Here are some interesting facts about how water and fluid intake influences our health:

•    75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (This likely applies to half the world population)
•    Even MILD dehydration will slow down ones metabolism as much as 3%.
•    One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
•    Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
•    Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day (half of that coming from food and drinks other than plain water) could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
•    A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
•    Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by up to 45%, the risk of breast cancer by up to 79%, and the risk of bladder cancer by up to 50%!

When you first start drinking the fluids that your body needs, you might experience increased urination as your body is used to utilizing whatever little moisture it receives to flush out toxins. However, keep drinking the 8 to 10 glasses of fluids you should be each day and before long you will notice a striking change in the way you look and feel. You might notice your skin looking brighter and clearer and start to feel better and more focused. If healthy skin is your focus, check out these other natural acne treatments.

As you continue to drink the appropriate amount of fluids, your body will start to trust that more is coming so it will get rid of any water retention weight in your body. This will encourage weight to drop from problem areas such as the hips, ankles, stomach and thighs.

How Ohsa Root Helped My Allergies and Asthma

Anyone who has experienced breathing problems due to allergies and asthma will tell you that it’s an absolute nightmare. Half the time you are trying to avoid undefined “triggers” that can send you into a tailspin and the other half of the time you are trying to find anything that will help.

Of course, you always want to consult your doctor about the best course of treatment for you, but I want to share my recent experience with Ohsa Root in hopes that it might help other people going through the same thing.

Ligusticum porteri, known as Osha or oshá, is an herb that grows primarily in the Rocky Mountains and northern Mexico. In Native Americans cultures it’s known as “Bear Medicine” because the bears are known to rub the root on their bodies. When the Native Americans observed how bears were utilizing this root, it led them to consider it’s healing potential.

When it comes specifically to breathing and allergies, Osha is known to help cut mucus and clear it from the sinuses and lungs. It also works to naturally open the bronchial tubes and help increase oxygen intake. Within a few hours of taking the root extract, I noticed that breathing through my nose was easier and that I could inhale deeper into my lungs. After about a week of continued use, I’ve found that my wheezing is better and that I’ve coughed up some of the mucus that seemed trapped in my chest. It’s feels like my congestion is lifting in a new way that I haven’t experienced before.

Of course everyone is different and I cannot guarantee that you will have these same results. However, the more that we share our positive healing experiences the more we help each other find new, helpful wellness strategies. So pass along the word about which natural products help you! –Chelsea

Natural products to help heal your pets emotions

People know that pets have emotions, but rarely do we think of helping our pets with their emotional baggage. Perhaps, this has lots to do with the fact that we are focused on our own emotional problems and that our pets can’t verbalize how they feel.

For instance, some animals have been subjected to puppy mills and animal shelters prior to landing in a loving home.  Experiences like these can take a toll on pets, even years later. Fortunately, the line of Bach Flower Remedies for Animals can really help.

Bach makes a wonderful line of remedies for your pet’s emotional needs. The Bach Flower Remedies for Animals utilizes homeopathic principles to help little furry friends become more balanced. You’ll find remedies for everything from jealousy and depression to fear and anger.

Check out the line of remedies now!

How to Get Rid of Parasites

While we tend to accept that our pets can contract parasites that disrupt their overall health, the notion that humans can also get parasites tends to be a foreign one. The truth is that most of us will have unfriendly parasites in our bodies at one point in our lives.  Also, the truth is that anyone can get parasites—even those that don’t travel far from home. For some time many believed that people only got parasites if they traveled to exotic countries, but that just isn’t true.

Types of parasites include roundworms, protozoa (one-cell parasites), flukes and tapeworms. Before you start to imagine huge worms crawling around your body, keep in mind it is estimated that 70 percent of all human parasites are microscopic—which means that they can’t be seen with the naked eye. Despite the type of parasite, the good news is that there are lots of things that we can do to get rid of them and we don’t have to feel “creeped-out” by their existence.

So how do you know if you have parasites and if they are affecting your overall health?  While the symptoms vary widely, some more common signs include nervousness, stomach bloating, fatigue, fuzzy thinking, itchy anus, sinus trouble and feeling hungry, tired and malnourished—even after eating a large meal. And while you should always consult your health care provider if you believe you might have parasites and need advice on a course of treatment, below are some more common tools people have used to rid their bodies of unfriendly critters.

Garlic—Perhaps the easiest thing to do to help get rid of parasites is to add more garlic to your diet. Garlic contains Allicin and Ajoene—two components that work to kill parasites.

Wormwood –One of the most well-known herbs for parasites, Wormwood contains the components thujone and isothujone, which help to dispel parasites from the body. Looking for a parasite cleansing kit that features Wormwood? Check out Hanna Kroeger’s Wormwood Kit, which features Wormwood and other products that work in synergy to help rid the body of parasites.

Colon Cleanse—Diets heavy in processed and fast foods can clog up the body. And just like garbage attracts unwanted bugs when left outdoors for longer periods of times, so can waste that sits in a backed-up colon (You get the picture). Thus, a gentle colon cleanse can help dispel waste and parasites from the system.  Some of the most well-known products for colon cleansing include Sonne’s Organic Food— a highly regarded line of products which has been around since 1946. Whatever path you choose to rid your body of parasites, remember to talk to your health care provider before starting any supplement or cleansing program.
