Castor Oil Packs for Detoxification, Allergies, and Liver Health

Castor Oil Packs for Detoxification, Allergies, and Liver Health

Once upon a time, I found a magic remedy that was easy for anyone to do and made me look like a superhero healer. It also made me feel like a million bucks and got rid of my dark under eye circles.

Though nobody with a chronic illness lives happily ever after with a single remedy, castor oil packs are still a super star to add to your toolbox.

Reversing Diabetes World Summit

Can you imagine what it would feel like to help yourself, mom, dad, husband (or wife) reverse Type 2 diabetes? I can tell you firsthand that it feels pretty amazing.

I helped my husband reverse his diagnosis before I knew anything about holistic medicine. His blood test results show that he is no longer hyperglycemic; not diabetic, not even pre-diabetic.

Knowing that the father of my children no longer has an elevated chance of heart disease, eye problems, and liver damage is truly priceless.

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

Preventing, controlling, and reversing Type 2 Diabetes can be done. No advanced degree needed.

…though it helps to learn from those who have them. The good ones really know their stuff.

The Reversing Diabetes World Summit starts today and will give you everything you need to know to reverse Type 2 Diabetes.

I don’t promote many free summits, but this is one is worth your time.

Improve Sleep – and endocrine function – with These Essential Oils

Improve Sleep - and endocrine function - with These Essential Oils

I’m one of those fancy schmancy people who loves the symphony. All of the instruments playing together making beautiful music. Can you imagine if there was a rogue cellist who started playing We Will Rock You in the middle of a Mozart concerto?

Chaos.

Other members of the orchestra would eventually fall out of time and the piece would fall apart.

What on Earth does this have to do with sleeping? Let me tell you…

The Delicate Endocrine System

The endocrine system is like an orchestra. The instruments are delicate (thyroid, adrenals, ovaries/testes, pineal gland, hypothalamus, etc.), and they work together to play in concert.

If you adrenal glands are underperforming, they draw on the thyroid gland. If your hypothalamus is off, the messages (hormones) don’t get relayed between the other glands and systems.

Endocrine imbalances can result in everything from belly fat to PMS and insomnia.

Resetting the endocrine system is a big job. I start the healing process with diet, digestion, blood sugar handling, and SLEEP for most clients.

Holistic Practice of Forest Bathing Has Surprising Benefits

Holistic Practice of Forest Bathing Has Surprising Benefits

We All Need a Little Forest Bathing

Note from Jennifer: I’m excited to introduce you to our newest contributor at 20 something allergies. Paisley Hansen is a freelance writer who will stop by once a month to share some great new therapy ideas like this one…

While you may not have heard of the term shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, the Forest Agency of Japan has prescribed ‘activities in the woods’ as a way to increase wellness and alleviate stress among their people.

If you’re like most people, a walk in the woods leaves you feeling peaceful, calm, and refreshed.

Researchers have also scientifically measured benefits from shinrin-yoku, making it one of the most perfect and inexpensive natural remedies in the world.

Background

Most people intuitively perceive the benefits that come from spending time surrounded by nature.

Introduced in 1982, Dr. Qing Li, the foremost researcher in this field, quantified people’s perceptions in scientific studies that have been replicated and verified by other researchers all over the world.

The most obvious health benefit from forest bathing is a decrease in the production of cortisol, the stress hormone, when enveloped in the tranquility of rustling leaves, birdsong, babbling brooks, and fresh air.

Most exciting is Dr. Li’s recent discovery that inhaling the chemicals phytoncide, a-pinene, and limonene released by evergreens, stimulate the activity of Natural Killer (NK) cells produced by the immune system to destroy cancer cells.
