This One Herb May Promote Longevity

rosemary

Cooking or incorporating rosemary into your life may just be the ticket to a healthier and longer life. People have been using rosemary to add a Mediterranean essence to dishes for quite some time. It grows in gardens, but can often be dismissed as just a regular herb. Trust us, it’s way better than normal.

In recent months, researchers have traveled to the small town of Aciarolli, Italy, which is just south of Naples, because 300 centenarians are living there. Researches don’t think this a coincidence, considering that the Italian island of Sardinia is already a Blue Zone, an area where people live measurably longer lives. Rosemary, in conjunction with a Mediterranean diet (mostly consisting of plant-based foods like legumes, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables) is believed to play a major role in their longevity.

 

The Benefits of Rosemary: 

            Rosemary has a wide variety of medicinal properties. It is easy to grown and maintain, and you’ll be amazed at how you can utilize its benefits in your daily life.

 

Improving Memory: 

            Rosemary has been known as a memory booster for a long time. While you are enjoying the aromatic flavor rosemary gives your meals, it actually helps your ability to focus. This helps keep your mind quick and allows you to have improved memory retention. Additionally, rosemary has been shown to increase cognitive activity in older people, Alzheimer’s patients, and people with dementia. While tests are still being conducted, rosemary is showing positive results in helping memory retention and mental sharpness.

 

Immune Booster:

            Rosemary has antioxidants, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties that help boost the immune system and promote healthy circulation. It has been known to help fight off staph infections and enhance one’s overall well-being. If you have essential oil of rosemary, you can use it topically on your skin for better blood circulation, as long as you dilute it with carrier oil first. Did we mention that it helps promote healthy digestion too?

 

Stress Reliever:  

Everybody experiences stress in life, but rosemary’s essential oil can help relieve anxiety, stress, and muscle tension. You can rub rosemary oil, which has been diluted with carrier oil, on the area of tension, but remember to avoid open wounds and your eyes. You can also add several drops of essential oil to a hot bath for an aromatherapy treatment that may promote overall relaxation.

 

Breath Freshener:

            Since rosemary has natural antibacterial properties, it can be used as a mouthwash to help freshen your breath. Boil a few sprigs of rosemary in water and strain it. Let the solution cool and keep it in your bathroom. Swish a small amount of the solution around in your mouth to help clean your teeth, gums, and freshen your breath.

 

Skin Health:

            Rosemary has incredible anti-aging benefits, which can be reaped from both the essential oil and the plant itself. By applying the leaves or diluted essential oil topically, you can improve the quality of your skin. The properties of rosemary can help heal blemishes and give your skin a natural, healthy, and refreshed glow. How amazing is this herb?!

One thing to keep in mind when you are using the essential oil of rosemary: Do not take it orally because of its potency. You can, however, incorporate a few drops of essential oil into your cooking, or you can put a few drops in a beverage to dilute it; or dilute it with carrier oil to apply it topically to the skin. If you use rosemary frequently, in combination with a plant-based diet like those in Aciarolli, there’s no reason you can’t have a healthier, longer life.

    Q: I have read that Peppermint, Lavender, Rosemary and Sage essential oils are all good for hair and stimulating hair growth. Would it be more beneficial to use them all at once for maximum result or should I just use the Rosemary and Sage only as you suggested? Also, I didn?t see any Almond oil so I was wondering if I could use Olive oil or Jojoba oil as a carrier oil.

    A:

    Yes they are great for stimulating hair growth; however, I would use them together or combined. ANY natural edible oil can be used - it's YOUR choice. Jojoba and/or sesame seed oil are the best oils for the hair.

    Q: Hi, I have been suffering from a dull pain the testicular area for over 2 years now. I have seen 2 urologists that have confirmed that I have enterococcus bacteria in either the prostate of genital area based on semen culture. I have also done testicle ultrasound and CAT scan of the area with good results. One of the urologist said that I have an inflamed prostate (prostitis) there was some varicose veins when ultra sound was done but the urologist continues to give me long term antibiotics. Some my symptoms have been dull pain in the testicular area when I need to have a bowel movement. low energy, moody, memory loss, irritable, confused, brain fog etc. I use to have a health sex drive but now my sex drive is really low. A bit of erectile dysfunction but I think that comes more from having the pain all the time and anxiety. I don't know if this is possible but my penis seems to have reduced in size when erect. The doctor ask me to try some cialis for the ED which I did for a short while but decided I needed something natural because of the long term problems of using those medications. I have had long periods of stress from a bitter business relationship about 2 years ago. My concern is that every time I go to the urologist all they want to do it give me antibiotics and that doesn't seem to be working. I am concern of the other organ damage caused by taking long term antibiotics. Is there an alternative you recommend? I have been looking at your Anti- virus treatment. I am 30 years old.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOXfollowed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. Read some of our free health articles too on male reproductive health. Healing begins with knowledge!

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.

    Q: I think this way is easier and faster to have your response. I currently have many skin problems. I first started having body rash and eczema around my lips. When the skin gets dry, it hurts, and I've been trying to moisturize the skin with using all natural Burt's Bees andor Hugo natural lotion, cream or oil. I tried sea salt soak and been taking Sen-Fen, Blood formula, Immune support, Anti-Viral, but it's not working and the symptoms haven't gotten better at all. My entire body is really itchy from rash, so I haven't been able to sleep well for the past 2-3 weeks. If you have any suggestions for life style, special drinks and foods or products I can use, please let me know asap.

    A:

    Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!

    Q: Is there a regime for dementia/Altzheimers like symptoms? My husband was diagnosed hiv+ 6 years ago. He stopped taking medication 3 years ago when I shared all info I could on hiv/aids myth/hoax. Unfortunately my husband is not sure what is true and I am afraid that the stress of this diagnosis has planted the seeds for his current physical and mental decline. He suffers from chronic bronchitis, body aches/pains, extreme weight loss, depression and now has memory loss and is often disorientated in his own home. For the past six months I have been able to get him to eat a predominately raw fruit and vegetable diet. Two weeks ago he was admitted to the hospital because he passed out while taking a hot bath. Several tests were done. We refused to have the hiv test done. Needless to say this got back to his VA doctors who now believe that all of this is due to him being non compliant to taking his hiv meds. In a follow up meeting they now declare that my husband has full blown AIDS and will die in six months if he does not take medication. Can your detox regime help now and what about the dementia-like symptoms? Is there a product/herb that can help this? I can make sure that the diet is raw.

    A:

    AIDS and HIV is a full blown hoax used on the ignorant, fearful, government-dependent, irresponsible, immature, and unconscious American people (95% of them, at least) to control them and make money off of them in the process. I would suggest your husband start reading as many of our free health articles as possible to help change his mindset which is the only thing that can kill him, of course with corresponding physical actions. Your husband can save his life by performing the FULL BODY DETOX kit, followed by the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, followed by the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. After these kits, if he takes 5 capsules of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD 5-6 times a day and drink 1-2 cups of RAINFOREST TONIC TEA and BRAIN TUNER TEA, he will be amazed at how he feels. Dementia: take 3 capsules of BRAIN TUNER daily! There's so much your husband can do to reclaim his health and life. But it all starts in the mind. We are here to assist if he so desires the assistance.

    Q: My grandmother has been diagnosed with alzheimer's and dementia... She is taking medications for her memory Namenda, which is doing no justice. and Duloxetine (Cymbalta).... Are there any alternatives to these medicines. We are no longer going to be giving her the Namenda. Any suggestions on which pills I should purchase for her?

    A: It would be in your grandmother's best interest to do the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body cleanse is a detox program that eliminates toxins and waste from the body that often contributes to things like memory issues and certain health ailments. In doing the cleanse, you're detoxing all of the major organs giving the body and the immune system the reset it needs to function how it should. The cleanse helps pull the aluminum and other heavy metal toxins that often plays a major role in Alzheimer's and Dementia. After cleansing we suggest taking the Brain Booster, Nerves Formula and the Magical Alchemical Elixir to specifically help bring recovery from the conditions of Alzheimer's and Dementia. The Oxy Drops could also help promote more oxygen to the brain.

    Q: Over the last 2 yrs I've been interested in taking a more holistic approach to my health. I heard a radio ad for the dherbs website in NC where I live. At any rate, after perusing the site, I know there are several products I want to use but I don't want to take a large quantity of supplements at once. I am interested in doing a detox and colon cleanse. I want to improve the health of my eyes. I am very mucus laden and don't want to have an invasive procedure done that ENT/Sinus doctors are suggesting so I would like to do something more natural to clear that head congestion. I also have oily skin and have struggled with acne most of my life and my hair is not manageable so I would like to do something about skin/hair. With the multiple areas that I'm trying to improve, what's the best regime for me without having to take a lot of products together at once?

    A:

    Start your healing journey by: 1. Change your diet (Go raw foods/vegan: no meats, no dairy products, etc.) 2. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX 3. After the FBD, take daily EYES FORMULA, MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD.

    Q: Thank you so much for doing all that you do. I wish that you were in my everyday life...If I ever come to Cali, I hope to be able to take you up on some of your services. I have given your site out to many people that cross my paths...most recently, a man with diabetes who is going blind. He seemed to be quite thankful for your info...I do hope that he contacts you...and my friend who perhaps has a problem with a parasite(s). But me....okay just waiting for tax refund and then I will hit you up for another full-body detox...and perhaps a parasite kit myself...as it is sad but true..with my current boyfriend careless but kind...I now have a problem with genital herpes...a small breakout every other month...I eat well for the most part...ofcourse it could be better. But the stress is hish...I am working on that. But my question is...would an air purifier do me any good? You see I live in Dundalk, Maryland...near baltimore...near a Steel plant, and a yeast plant, and close to the military practice bombing sites, and other military negative stuff, and the city polluted with car pollution, tons of light pollution, and they spray for mosquitos...then I go to work and I work at a place called ABC Supply...great place right, well the stress is high, and the building we work in is shot...I swear there is mold under the carpets in one of the rooms...the ceiling is constantly leaking and we don't know what from...and the fumes from forklifts and the asphalt from the shingles...the filterfrom the intake gets changed like once a year...but is filled with 'shit' probably in a day or week. So the answer is to get a new job and move...yeah I know...I just don’t know how to do it...or where to go. Since I moved here, I have a problem with my ears...filling up with water or histimine or whatever...usually if I don't drink enough water near my menstrual cycle...I went to a doctor once and basically walked out of the office telling him what to do for his cold...yasee..he was no help...I knew more than him already....these past two years have been bad for allergies. Now, my ears and my throat...my nose too...though I do clean it out with water and that helps. I am not the only one. In the past two years there is a great number of people who say the same thing...they have never had a problem with allergies until these past two years. My grandmother and next door neighbor are two..but many more...well they just started up that steel mill again probably about that time...they sprayed hard core for mosquitos right before my grandmother started having problems...global warming for one...and i dont' know..but two years ago I was involved with a group of people sending out petitions against an LNG liquid natural gas plant that would bring in a ship two times the size of a football field and a huge pipe line to pennsylvania, and a skyscraper of a building to store the gas. Well...we fought against it...but apparently the gas company has more say than our own local government...I don't know...but hear about it every once in a while that they are still trying to get it built. So, an air purifier?? what do you think? Much Love and Health and Thanks!! Peace, RESPONSE: Thank you so very much for your words, Beloved. Much obliged from the heart!

    A:

    In regards to your question: Oh yes! By all means purchase an air purifier or an ozone machine (which will actually be best or better for you). Make sure you detox (FULL BODY DETOX) periodically, consume ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, and take plenty of IODINE PHOSPHATE as sea weed is great for neutralizing the effects of radiation.

    Q: I just purchased the FULL BODY DETOX for myself. But I need something for my 35 year old Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) son. He was in a motorcycle accident on April 14, 2007. He hit his head real hard. He injured his head all over. He was not wearing a helmet. This was his first time getting on a motorcycle without a helmet. First, Doctors said he would be dead in 3 days. Well, since he was still alive after 4 weeks they said that he would live in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. Well, now it's been 10 months and he is talking, asking questions, standing up on his good leg, because his right leg and arm is contracted. He is still out there a little but he is progressing very well. His speech is slurred a bit. He can feed himself a little, but like I said he is still out there some what. Oh, going to the bathroom is a hit and miss. Sometimes he will tell you he has to go and sometimes he will not. Then, sometimes he will tell you he has to go and then he will tell you it was a false alarm. We still put diapers on him. I still change him and he has not become ashamed yet. So I was just wondering if you have something for his brain injuries. His long term memory is getting there, but short term memory is short.

    A:

    Doctors are a straight mess, specializing in negativity! They taint hope, optimism, and inspiration. Have your son take Dherbs.Com NERVES FORMULA (3 caps every night), CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA (3 caps daily), and BRAIN TUNER (6 caps daily) and drink the BRAIN TUNER TEA (1-2 cups daily) and he'll come back a round. Stay positive! Healing is a miracle, so claim and welcome it!

    Q: When I use the OZ OIL my outer skin is very soft and subtle. However deep down in the skin I feel very itchy. I have been assuming this is the effect of the oil doing its job. After a few weeks I got the feeling that I should try to loofa off the top layers of skin so the under skin could rejuvenate its self. I suppose I am writing because I want to check to make sure that the deep itching truly is a positive healing process before I purchase another bottle. Also to prompt you for any other ideas you might have to help my condition. It is purely beauty based btw I don't have any skin illness.

    A:

    The itching is a natural side effect that a healing crisis is taking place. Keep using the Oxy Oil at your discretion.

    Q: I did the FBD, the Antiviral Cleanse, and Electric Greens Cleanse. I tested negative for HSVII, (thank GOD). But, I have still been experiencing a lot of itching, and redness in the genital area (and they get worse around the same time periods that my genital herpes outbreaks used to flare up, though this just might be a coincidence). There aren't any big lesions, but sometimes there are small patches of red raw skin, (not cuts). I know that the body can eliminate toxins via the skin. Knowing this I am assuming that if I take in toxins, it is still leaving via the skin (correct me if I'm wrong).

    A:

    Great to hear! You tested negative. The energetic residual effect of the outbreaks are still there. Doesn't mean you have herpes though! Healing is not over with because of some test! You still have healing to do on the emotional energetic level. You are 100% correct about your body eliminating toxins Beloved! Because, the occurrences are on the vagina, you may need to address some past sexual issue or issues dealing with your Goddessness.
