Clear Skin From the Inside Out

You can have the clearest skin in the world…until you eat the wrong food or start slacking in your facial cleansing routine.  It happens to everyone.  If I get really stressed out, I get a surprise on my face.  Eat too many oranges, I get a surprise on my forehead.  Over the last few weeks, I’ve been really busy, and at times I have been too tired to wash my face before bed.  I don’t wear makeup on a regular basis, but I always moisturize my face.  I get tired of having to do a deep cleanse every other night before bed.  I workout alot and I sweat alot, but I don’t wear makeup.  Not wearing makeup helps, but you can’t forget the grime your face collects throughout the day.  Your pores need that layer of grime removed so you don’t wind up with Pimple Delight.  So I have been trying a few things to kind of keep my skin balanced. My skin is sensitive and it has helped cut down on the irritation I do sometimes experience for too much deep cleansing.  So here are the things I changed: #1 ACV and Honey I drink a cup of this stuff with […]

Hello Heartburn

As we all know heartburn is a royal pain.  In fact, in some cases it can be right up there with a case of bad gas.  You know nothing is more embarrassing than a really bad stomach that’s really just a bad case of gas, but that’s another story.  So I’ve been on the receiving end of heartburn.  It’s wasn’t pleasant.  It was like taking one of those really huge pills that gets stuck in your esophagus and no amount of water will get rid of it. Personally, I don’t like taking medication for something that is usually diet related.  I usually eat really well, but everybody has there nice little spurts of “I’m gong to eat donuts for the next month”.  So what had happened was, I was in college and busy.  I wanted something quick, easy, and easily portable.  My frozen meal of choice was ravioli.  There are many different variations of ravioli.  However, many sold on the market contain red sauce.  Mistake #1.  I was used to homemade red sauce with fresh tomatoes, and in all honesty I didn’t realize how acidic red sauce can be.  It had been a part of my diet regularly growing up.

A Herbal Remedy for Nausea and Morning Sickness

I’ve mentioned ginger’s properties before in regards to only the scalp and hair.  It’s a great herb that can heal damaged hair follicles and jumps start your hair follicles, but it also has other useful medical properties.  One of those properties is soothing nausea.  There have been medical studies conducted by the US Navy, as well as others, on the properties of ginger in regards to abating nausea.  The US Navy found the herb helped new sailors find their “sea legs” quicker.  It became more desirable when the toxicity results can back as very low.  The toxicity levels and the results the US Navy found brought ginger to the attention of the medical community, particularly in regards to its possible aid in helping pregnant women with morning sickness.  It was found that the toxicity levels are low enough for pregnant women to consume it.  A study showed that a 250 mg dose taken 4 times daily significantly reduced vomiting and nausea in 19 out of 27 in the pregnant women studied.      Another use for ginger is helping with arthritis.  Arthritis is defined as pain inflammation and stiffness of the joints.  Ginger has shown the ability to reduce inflammation […]
