Stop the pain of osteoarthritis with Glucosamine Sulfate.  Some studies show that glucosamine sulfate, a nutritional supplement, may build cartilage and slow the progression of the disease instead of merely masking the symptoms.

Some nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and aspirin may actually worsen or accelerate joint destruction by preventing new healthy connective tissue in the joints from being formed.

Studies show that taking 500mg of glucosamine sulfate, 3 times per day (before meals), helps people suffering with osteoarthritis with no known side effects.  There is one thing you must understand….don’t expect to be pain free right away, it does take time to build up in the body.  After all it is working to rebuild a damaged part in the body.

If this is something you are considering, try taking 1500 mg of glucosamine sulfate daily for 6 months and then drop down to 500 mg, 3 times per day with a meal.

Now for those of you that are serious about fighting arthritis naturally, you need to check out Turmeric!  Turmeric Curcumin boost the healing power of Glucosamine!!!  Where gluocosamine works to rebuild cartilage, turmeric curcimin reduces pain and inflammation of arthritis with no known side effects.

FOR IMMEDIATE PAIN RELIEF TRY MAHANARAYAN OIL.  You simply rub the oil on the skin where the pain.  Now it can give immediate relief but it is temporary relief.  The pain will probably come bake in a few hours, but you can rub some more of the mahanarayan oil on the spot again.  You can do this as often as you need to.

FOR LONG-TERM PAIN RELIEF TRY GUGGUL (sometimes called Guggulu).  Some say this herb can relieve the pain of arthritis within a day or two.  Take 1/4 teaspoon of guggul tincture with 1/2 teaspoon of water 30 minutes before meals 3 times per day.

The herb travels through the body to the arthritic bone and removes the imbalances that are causing the stiffness, swelling and inflammation.

If the pain goes away, doctors do suggest that you stop taking the herb for a month to let your body adjust.  You can start taking the herb again as a preventative or if the pain returns.  As always, check with your doctor.

One last note…..You always benefit from lubricating your joints with dietary oils such as Fish oil, Flaxseed oil, and Evening Primrose.

If you are fed up with that swollen, achy feeling in your forehead or your cold has lasted a lot longer than it should have you may be suffering from sinusitis.

Your sinuses are hollow air spaces inside the bones surrounding your nose. Sinuses produce mucus which drains into the nose. The mucus can cause inflammation and swelling in the nose which can block the sinuses and cause pain and even infection.

Sinusitis can be acute or chronic. Acute means it lasts less than 4 weeks. Chronic lingers around longer.

Acute sinusitis often starts as a cold or hay fever, but then turns into an infection. Unfortunately, allergies and pollutants can also bring on sinusitis.

Symptoms of Sinusitis:

fever
weakness
fatigue
cough
congestion
postnasal drip

Treatment:

antibiotics
decongestants
pain relievers
saline nasal sprays
vaporizers

Still looking for a natural approach of treatment? Try adding antioxidants such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, Glutathione (add to diet either by food or supplements) all of which neutralize free radicals to beef up immune system and prevent infections. Pack your diet with asparagus, avocados, honeydew melon, sweet potatoes, and carrots or opt for the supplements.

Also the supplement Bromelain works to loosen up mucus and suppresses coughing. And your body’s best defense is drinking water. Stay Hydrated. Water moistens mucous membranes so sinuses drain properly. So drink up!

Liver disease claims the lives of thousands of Americans each year, and disrupts the health of millions more.  The liver is threatened daily by constant  toxins, unhealthy diets, and infections.  There are many different kinds of liver disease, but all liver disorders come down to a few main causes.  Oxidative stress and inflammation that lead to liver cell damage and loss of function.  The liver is a workhorse for the body and labors tirelessly to rid the body of accumulated toxins. Mainstream medicine has virtually nothing to offer victims of liver disease, but an age old remedy, milk thistle extract provides new hope.  Milk thistle is a herbal supplement used to treat liver disease. Milk thistle extracts are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory which also boost normal liver regenerative properties and fight specific toxins.  Make sure you get  standardized  milk thistle which has  active ingredients to provide all the supplements for the most therapeutic value.

Some people may get more forgetful with age.  It may take longer to learn new things, remember familiar names and words or even find your glasses!  
Not to worry, these are usually signs of mild forgetfulness maybe due to a hectic lifestyle, etc….

On the other hand, serious memory lapses affect your ability to do everyday activities like driving a car, grocery shopping, or even handling money.  So signs of serious memory problems may include:

Asking the same question over and over again.
Becoming lost in familiar places.
Being unable to follow directions.
Getting very confused about time, people, and places.
Not taking care of yourself (such as eating poorly, not bathing, or being unsafe).

Any of those signs need to be reported to your doctor immediately.  Fear Not! There are things you can do to help make your memory last!  Exercising, having a hobby, socializing with friends and family, and eating healthy foods all play an important role in keeping your mind sharp.

Nutrients like antioxidant vitamins such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E work to clean up oxidative damage in brain cells.

Carbohydrates help to provide energy for the brain to function.

Foods such as grapes, blueberries, and dark chocolate contain epicatechins that improve brain blood flow.

Iron helps form neurotransmitters to carry messages in brain.

And last but not least, healthy fatty acids help to form membranes in the brain.

FEELING BLUE?

Start supplementing your body with turmeric daily.  Turmeric is rich in curcumin, an antioxidant that helps you produce more mood boosting serotonin and dopamine in the brain and body. When levels are low it causes mood changes and depression. Try taking 1000 mg daily and you will feel perkier by week’s end!

VITAMIN D

The majority of us are lacking vitamin D now due to the dreary weather and the sun’s weakened ray’s. Low levels of vitamin D reduce the function of beta cells in the pancreas, which are responsible for producing insulin.  This impairs the body’s ability to regulate insulin and increases the risk of insulin resistance, prediabetes and diabetes.  People with low levels are 40% more likely to develop diabetes than those with high levels.  This vitamin is also essential for keeping your joint cartilage healthy and strong. Research shows that it can cut your risk of ever developing osteoarthritis by 67%!   You can use a vitamin D in a supplement to deliver the benefits.

 

Natural Stress Relievers

Everyone experiences stress sometimes. What may stress you may not be stressful to someone else. Stress can even be helpful sometimes (example: to meet a deadline, etc…). On the other hand, chronic stress can build up over time and cause wear and tear on the body weakening the immune system and possible health problems.

There are many options to deal with stress such as: exercise, hobby, gardening, down time with friends/family, pets, music, diet/nutrition, and medicine.

Where most of these options are self explanatory I would like to talk about 2 natural remedies whether you prefer to take in the nutrients by supplement form or dietary, you just can’t go wrong with Vitamin C & B12. Eating the right foods/natural supplements can help your body to deal with stress.

Vitamin C is needed to make serotonin in the brain, which is believed to help prevent depression. Food sources that are rich in vitamin C are sweet bell peppers, kiwi, and artichokes.

Vitamin B12 helps make neurotransmitters to carry messages in brain. It helps boost your mood, energy, and immune system. Food sources that are rich in vitamin B12 are crab, salmon, tuna, and turkey.

It is nearly impossible to avoid stress, but eating a healthy diet can certainly help your body to deal with it!
