Americans love cheese. Cheddar, pepper jack, bleu, feta, mozzarella, provolone, brie, gouda, and a lot of other cheeses are devoured by people every day. In fact, the average American consumes about 31 pounds of cheese each year. If you really love cheese, you probably exceed this number. Americans love cheese so much so that pizza companies have started stuffing the crust with cheese!

 

This article was posted on this day (January 20th) for a reason. It is National Cheese Lover’s Day. We know that a lot of people know that they shouldn’t eat as much cheese as they do. It’s important to highlight the reasons why you should be avoiding this addictive dairy product.

 

Increased Risk of Heart Disease:

A lot of cows do not have positive living conditions and are treated like milk pumping machines. They are also fed a diet rich in GMOs and antibiotics, which contain hormones that make them produce more milk. Because cows ingest all of these chemicals, humans ingest them when they eat cheese or drink milk. This ultimately increases a person’s risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and many other ailments.

 

Cheese Is America’s #1 Source of Saturated Fat…And That’s Not Good:

In an average slice of pizza from a major pizza chain restaurant (think Domino’s or Pizza Hut), you get about two-thirds of your recommended daily intake of saturated fat. This has largely contributed to the obesity epidemic in America. Try to go for healthier fats like avocados, coconut oil, nuts and seeds, or extra virgin olive oil.

 

We want you to enjoy cheese, but we want you to do it in a healthy way. To help you avoid eating regular cheese we have some awesome vegan cheese recipes to help you out. Try them out. You might be surprised at how much you like them.

They are both going around, but you can help protect yourself by using these natural remedies.

In case you haven’t noticed, people are dying from the flu at the moment. Whether it is flu season or not, you need to take action so that you can avoid getting sick. One of the best ways to do this is to make sure that your immune system is functioning optimally. A weakened immune system, or an immune system that doesn’t function the way it should, can make you more prone to viruses, skin problems or stomach pain, and even frequent heartburn.

 

We want to help keep you healthy, safe, and virus-free, which is why we have put together a few natural remedies that can have a positive impact on your immune system. Some of these things may be different from what you are used to, but they are better than getting sick or taking whatever medications you see in commercials.

 

The Master Tonic:

This has some incredible healing properties that can help improve circulation, purify your blood, and remedy your lymphatic system. We have to warn you, though, that it is a very potent herbal remedy. Here are a couple things to know before consuming this natural antibiotic. 

  1. Wear rubber gloves and a paper mask when making this Master Tonic because the peppers are quite intense.
  2. If the flavor of this liquid is too potent, try eating an orange, lemon, or lime slice to help out your taste buds and cool your mouth.

 

Ingredients for the Master Tonic:

  • 1 liter organic apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup garlic, finely diced
  • ¼ cup onion, finely diced
  • 2 fresh peppers, hottest you can find
  • 2 Tbsp. grated horseradish
  • 2 Tbsp. turmeric powder
  • 5 liter glass mason jar

Instructions:

  • Combine all of the ingredients, excluding the vinegar, in a large mixing bowl. Mix it up and then pour the mixture into a mason jar.
  • Pour the apple cider vinegar into the mason jar, seal the jar, and shake it up. Store this in a cool, dry place (like a cupboard) for 2 weeks, shaking it up a couple times a day, everyday.
  • After two weeks, strain the juice from the jar into another vessel that you can drink from. You can use the remaining mixture to cook with.

 

Elderberry Syrup To Boost Immunity:

Elderberries are widely known for their ability to boost the immune system and help the body fight off bacteria or viruses. In fact, elderberry is commonly used in the flu vaccine. In addition to providing allergy relief, elderberries can also be used to help lower blood pressure, aid digestion, and even slow cancer cell growth.

Word to the Wise: Few species of elderberry are actually edible, which is why it is important to get elderberries from a credible, licensed store. Don’t go into the woods and pluck whatever resembles an elderberry because it could be deathly poisonous.

What You Need To Make An Elderberry Tincture:

  • 2/3 cup dried elderberries
  • 5 cups filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon clove powder
  • 1 cup organic raw honey

 

Instructions:

  • Combine everything except for the honey in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Once it is boiling, reduce heat to a low simmer for 45 minutes so that the liquid reduces by about half.
  • Remove from the heat and carefully mash the berries in the pan. Strain through a mesh strainer into a glass jar.
  • Once it is lukewarm, stir in the honey. You can store this airtight glass jar in the fridge and take it daily.
  • Children can take ½ teaspoon or 1 teaspoon of the syrup and adults can take ½ tablespoon or 1 tablespoon once a day. If you get hit with the flu, take these respective measurements every 3 hours.

 

Supercharge Your Immune System With This Drink:

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ¼ cup raw apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup organic raw honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 cups filtered water

Instructions:

  • Put the filtered water in a saucepan over medium heat and warm until it is steaming. Remove from the heat and stir in the honey until dissolved.
  • Add the turmeric, apple cider vinegar, and cayenne pepper and mix well. Let this cool before pouring into a large glass jar. Cover it and leave it in the fridge to cool overnight.
  • Drink one cup of this after your morning glass of water.

You may be wondering how the food you eat can affect your brain. Well, the brain is in your body and your body is affected by the food you eat; thus, your brain is affected by the food you eat. You can help boost brain function the same way you can boost your immune system or metabolism. As it turns out, helping the different systems, specifically your gut, in the body can keep your brain healthy.

 

When the body is stressed, for example, it tries to remedy the situation via inflammation. Inflammation is beneficial if you have a wound because it helps to repair the damage, but it is not beneficial when it is chronically in the body for no reason. This can lead to multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, anxiety, and other health conditions.

 

When your digestive system is happy, your body can help keep inflammation under control. Healthy gut flora is actually conducive to a healthy brain because gut hormones enter the brain and can improve cognitive function. Additionally, eating foods that are abundant in antioxidants, healthy fats, and vitamins & minerals help to decrease your risk of cognitive decline. Be sure to include the following foods in your diet to boost your memory and keep your brain healthy.

 

Extra Virgin Olive Oil:

This oil contains heart-healthy fats, but it also contains oleocanthal. This substance helps to increase the production of enzymes and proteins, which help to break up plaques have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Broccoli:

It’s always important to eat your greens. Not only is broccoli rich in plant-based protein, but it is also abundant in vitamin C. In fact, one cup of broccoli contains about 150% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C. It also contains choline, which helps to keep your memory sharp.

 

Virgin Coconut Oil:

It is important to get virgin coconut oil and not whatever coconut oil you see on the shelf. Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil is even better. Coconut oil is a proven heart-healthy oil and acts as a natural antibiotic and antioxidant. It also helps to improve the body’s use of insulin.

 

Rosemary:

Rosemary has a lot of anti-aging properties. It also contains carnosic acid, which helps to protect the brain from neurological damage. This acid protects the brain from free radical damage, which has been known to cause strokes and Alzheimer’s disease. Dried rosemary is beneficial, but it is always better to get the fresh herb.

 

Turmeric:

Turmeric has already been known to have anti-cancer properties, and more recent studies are indicating that it can help keep people mentally sharp. More recently, it has demonstrated that it can help to positively influence brain function, especially for people who have genetic history of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other neurological disorders.

 

Blueberries:

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which are integral for a healthy brain. Not only are they rich in fiber, vitamin K, and vitamin C, but they also contain tons of healthy omegas and work to decrease stress and brain degeneration, due to the galic acid content.

It is no secret that there is a direct link between stress and certain skin conditions. Psychological stress (i.e. worrying about money, work, making food, kids, parents, or anything) can aggravate the skin. For instance, a common side effect of stress is dark circles, especially when this is combined with lack of sleep.

 

The body can only handle so much before it becomes stressed. When certain pressures go beyond a person’s adaptive power, his or her brain understands that the body is stressed and releases stress hormones. This can lead to behavioral or physiological changes. Dark circles, for example, can be a physiological response to an over abundance of stress hormones in the body.

 

When it comes to naturally getting rid of dark circles, it is much easier remedy the situation when you treat the cause. If stress is causing you to sleep less and develop dark circles, it may be beneficial for you to practice some stress relieving exercises. Natural ways to eliminate stress include massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, exercise, or even eating a healthier plant-based diet.

 

Because it may take some time for you to naturally reduce your stress levels, we have a simple DIY skincare cream that you can use to remedy dark circles. It helps to hydrate your skin and decrease puffy eyes.

 

Ingredients:

  • ½ teaspoon beeswax
  • 1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond oil
  • ½ teaspoon Shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • ¼ cup alcohol-free aloe vera gel
  • 1 teaspoon organic raw honey
  • ½ teaspoon bentonite clay
  • 5-10 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions:

  • Place the first four ingredients in a double broiler* and heat until the mixture is melted. Pour into a blender and let it cool.
  • In a separate bowl, add the rest of the ingredients (except for the bentonite clay) and mix well.
  • Once the mixture in the blender has cooled and become similar to the texture of lip balm, break it up with a spoon and add the mixture in the bowl to the blender. Blend until everything is well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a non-metal bowl and stir in the bentonite clay with a non-metal utensil. Place the cream in a glass jar and store in a cool, dry place. Apply a little of this cream around your eyes every night before bed.

*If you don’t have a double broiler, you can place a heat-safe glass bowl over a saucepan that is filled with simmering water. Make sure that the heat is low once the water begins to boil.

What You Should Eat To Help Improve Your Thyroid https://www.dherbs.com/articles/what-you-should-eat-to-help-improve-your-thyroid/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/what-you-should-eat-to-help-improve-your-thyroid/#comments Fri, 12 Jan 2018 12:15:01 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75793 Want to naturally improve your thyroid? Follow these dietary guidelines and eat these foods to help your body get back to normal.

Having a thyroid issue can completely change the way you live your life. Detecting a problem with the thyroid can take some doctors a couple years. Some people with thyroid conditions get prescribed different medications that are not conducive (or sometimes even for the thyroid) to thyroid health. These medications can lead to mood swings, constipation, sugar cravings, or extreme fatigue.

 

How Important Is A Healthy Thyroid?

The thyroid is one of the most important glands in the body. It regulates the endocrine system, which includes all of the glands in your body that are responsible for hormone production. Since the thyroid is almost like the gland in charge, the endocrine system (and the rest of your bodily functions) can become faulty. An improperly functioning thyroid basically throws your body out of whack.

 

It is possible to naturally reverse your thyroid condition through food. By eliminating certain foods and adding healthier foods, the thyroid can naturally improve its functions. Always remember that it is best to avoid meats, meat products, dairy products, flour, processed foods, junk foods, fried foods, and refined sugars. Plant-based foods are always best for your body!

 

Avoid Soy Products:

Eliminate all soy products (including edamame) from your diet when trying to heal your thyroid. About 94% of all soy is genetically engineered, and you don’t want those hormones in your body. Additionally, you should eliminate gluten, especially if you have Hashimoto’s disease, because both gluten and soy can have negative effects on normal thyroid function.

 

Sea Veggies:

Since iodine is an extremely important nutrient for the thyroid, you should eat your sea vegetables. Insufficient iodine levels can limit the production of thyroid hormones, which ultimately inhibits healthy thyroid function. The best sea vegetables to eat include spirulina, kelp, wakame, hijiki, or nori sheets.

 

Brazil Nuts:

Selenium helps to convert thyroxine to T3 hormones, and Brazil nuts are full of this mineral. It’s important to not eat too many Brazil nuts, though. Only eat three a day. Other sources of selenium include chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and flaxseeds. Note: Sometimes people with Hashimoto’s disease are recommended to avoid selenium, but selenium is needed for glutathione production to decrease thyroid antibodies.

 

Chlorophyll:

Due to the antioxidant properties in chlorophyll, it can decrease and absorb mold toxins, for example aflatoxin B, which can cause liver complications and cancer. Additionally, chlorophyll helps to boost energy levels and remove heavy metals, which may be negatively affecting the thyroid. Make sure to eat your green vegetables to get your daily dose of chlorophyll.

 

Cruciferous Vegetables:

There have been many studies indicating that cruciferous vegetables may help to prevent thyroid cancer. Cruciferous vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, kale, turnip greens, watercress, bok choy, arugula, cauliflower, and mustard greens. It is best to eat them raw to absorb their phytonutrients.

 

Remember: Always listen to your body, especially when you change your diet. Include these foods in a well-balanced, plant-based diet and see if your thyroid improves.

In recent years, Americans have been developing more vision disorders and conditions. A lot of these conditions are diet-related, meaning that you can naturally improve your vision or help prevent the development of these conditions/disorders. In fact, there is increasing evidence that proper nutrition is strongly linked to better eye health.

 

What Foods To Eat?

You have to do more than eat fruits and veggies that promote eye health. You can’t eat these vegetables and continue eating unhealthy foods. The foods that promote healthier eyes won’t have a beneficial effect if you eat dairy products, processed foods, meats, meat products, junk foods, and refined sugars. The body won’t be able to properly absorb the nutrients because it will be trying too hard to process the other junk.

 

What you need to eat is collard greens. We aren’t talking about collard greens that are cooked with bacon fat. We are talking about either blending collard greens in smoothies, lightly sautéing them in a little olive oil, or using the leaves as a wrap while you are cleansing. They have amazing nutrients, such as magnesium, vitamins A, B, C & K, iron, calcium, folate, and potassium.

 

Eye Health:

One cup of sautéed collard greens contains about 771 micrograms of vitamin A, which exceeds the recommended daily amount for women; the average female requires 700 micrograms and the average male requires 900 micrograms. In addition to benefiting your eyes, vitamin A is beneficial for healthy skin, teeth, and mucus membranes. Collar greens also contain lutein, which has been known to decrease the risk of macular degeneration. This nutrient helps to filter out U.V. rays, so it is almost like a natural pair of sunglasses.

 

Folate:

A lot of people take folic acid, but getting the natural source of folate is much better. Folate helps with the production of new cells! Collard greens are rich in folate (177 micrograms per cup), which helps to support a healthy nervous system and can even reduce the risk of some birth defects. According the CDC, folate can also reduce the risk of heart defects and cleft lip.

 

If you need a little inspiration for how use collard greens in a healthier way, try making the following recipes.

 

Collard Wraps With Avocado & Sunflower Seed Paste:

You’ll be saying , “That’s a wrap” when you make this simple recipe. And that was terrible.

We bet that you didn’t know cedar trees have some pretty amazing health properties. More specifically, cedarwood essential oil, which is extracted from the wood through steam distillation, has some amazing antiseptic, astringent, diuretic, insecticidal, and anti-fungal properties. These health properties can help to boost your metabolism, improve your digestive system, and can even help to promote hair growth.

 

Cedarwood essential oil is great to have in the house because you never know when you are going to need its health benefits. If you don’t have any, you may just have to run to the store and buy some after you read this article.

 

Reduces Arthritis:

Inflamed joints and tissues are common symptoms of arthritis, but using cedarwood essential oil can help the discomfort of the condition. You can use it topically on the affected joint(s) or you can inhale the aroma by placing it into a diffuser. Adding about 10 drops to a warm bath can also help to lessen joint pain.

 

Prevents Infections:

Because of the strong antiseptic properties, cedarwood essential oil can be applied to wounds to help protect you from tetanus bacteria. It is often used in herbal antiseptic creams, so you don’t have to worry about it not being safe to apply directly on the wound. It helps to relieve the white blood cells and immune system of stress so that they can focus on maintaining internal health.

 

Natural Deodorizer:

The scent of cedarwood has been known to improve self-esteem and promote togetherness. It has even been known to change a person’s outlook on life. You can add it to a diffuser and place it in your room or a common area to spread its therapeutic aromas. You can also apply it to the inside of your wrists as a natural cologne/perfume. You’ll smell like the wilderness.

 

Remedies A Dry Scalp:

If you have a dry or flaky scalp, it’s time to turn to cedarwood essential oil for help. Cedarwood helps to improve scalp circulation and stimulate hair growth in the process. To make a DIY remedy, mix two drops of cedarwood essential oil with a little bit of virgin coconut oil. Massage this mixture onto your scalp for five minutes. Let it work its magic for 30 minutes before washing out. Repeat once a day until you see a difference.

 

Relieves Spasms:

Using cedarwood essential oil can relieve a lot of spasms. It can provide relief to muscle, respiratory, intestinal, heart, and nerve spasms. You can even use it if you have restless leg syndrome. Massage the oil topically, once a day, on the area where the spasm is or inhale the aroma to provide relief

 

Cough Relief:

If you feel congested or are suffering from a cold, cedarwood essential oil can help to relieve the irritation. Because it is an expectorant, it works to remove phlegm from your airways and lungs, resulting in natural decongestion and cough relief. Pour 10 drops of cedarwood essential oil in a bath and soak in it for at least 30 minutes for best results.

 

Relieves Seborrhea Symptoms:

Seborrhea is caused by a malfunction in the sebaceous glands and typically results in yellow, white, or scaly looking skin near the scalp, eyebrows, inner ear, or other areas with hair follicles. You can apply the oil to the affected areas or add the oil to the bath to soak in to help remedy the condition. It helps to regulate sebum production and treat seborrhea. It also helps to reduce redness.

Knee pain is quite literally, a pain. It can inhibit certain activities, daily tasks, or exercises, which is not necessarily a good thing if your New Year’s resolution is to be more active and lose weight. What if we told you that you may be able to naturally fix the problem? Rather than just slapping a brace on your knee or getting knee replacement surgery just for the heck of it, try stretching.

 

Stretching, you say? Yes, and we know this sounds too easy to be the answer, but the reality is that most people don’t stretch the correct muscles, whether they exercise or not. Most people do not stretch their hips, which commonly cause knee pain. Your knees typically give you some warning that your hips need to be stretched, for instance, the pain. This is why you should do the following stretches every day.

 

Half Moon Stretch:

Stand up straight and cross your right leg over your left, with your feet right next to each other. Place your left hand on your left hip and reach your right arm up and over your head. Your body should be curved like a half moon. Hold this stretch for about 30 seconds and repeat on the other side.

 

Butterfly Stretch:

Pop a squat and sit with your back straight, feet in front of you with your soles touching. Your knees should be out to the sides. Gently push your knees down toward the floor until you feel a stretch. Don’t hurt yourself. Hold it this stretch for one minute.

 

Half Butterfly:

Remain sitting down with your palms behind you, but raise your knees and place your feet flat on the ground in front of you. Raise your left foot and put it on your right knee, your left knee making a half butterfly to the side. Hold this pose for 30 seconds and then repeat on the other side.

 

Pigeon Pose:

Start on all fours just like you did in the previous pose. Slide your right knee forward and angle it out slightly; the outside of your right thigh should be on the ground. Extend your left leg back until it is straight, making sure to keep your hips square. Hold yourself up straight and remain in this pose for about 30 seconds. If you feel flexible enough, lay down on your right leg. Repeat this on the other side.

 

In addition to these stretches, you should also stretch your calves. Doing these stretches once a day is going to help you. If you do them five times a day, they will really help you. Do these stretches and let us know how your knees feel.

It’s no coincidence that we posted an article about beans today because it is actually National Bean Day! Most people are familiar with kidney, pinto, garbanzo, and black beans, but a lot of people may not be onto the amazing benefits of adzuki beans. Signature to Asian cuisine, adzuki beans are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals that contribute to the optimal functioning of the body’s organs and systems.

 

What Are Adzuki Beans?

Native to the Himalayan region, adzuki beans are commonly eaten in Japan, Korea, China, and other East Asian countries. The pronunciation is “azuki,” which comes from the Japanese language. They are red beans, which are typically used in sweeter dishes, and they are most commonly eaten in the form of a paste.

 

Adzuki beans are different from other beans in that they have a slightly sweeter, nuttier flavor. Even if you have a particular palate, you might be pleasantly surprised with the taste of adzuki beans. We want to entice you to try these beans, and that is why we have gathered some of the health benefits you can reap when you eat them.

 

Improves Heart Health:

Eating adzuki beans can help to give you a cardiovascular boost! They are rich in dietary fiber, which helps to lower cholesterol levels, and the potassium works to increase blood flow and release excess sodium in the body. This is especially beneficial for those with high blood pressure. Adzuki beans can even help to decrease your risk of atherosclerosis and heart attack.

 

Improves Digestion:

Just like most other beans, adzuki beans are high in fiber, which is important for digestive health. Fiber works to stimulate peristalsis (the moving of food through the digestive tract), and this helps to relieve constipation, bloating, diarrhea, and can even benefit more serious digestive conditions.

 

Builds Muscle Mass:

Adzuki beans can help you build muscle mass because they are loaded with protein (17.3 grams of protein per cup). Because adzuki beans are comprised of plant-based protein, the body can absorb it more easily and build muscle more efficiently. When you combine a regular workout routine with sufficient, complete protein intake, you will start seeing results.

 

Antioxidants Galore:

According to several research studies, adzuki beans contain about 29 compounds, which means they have a high antioxidant content. These antioxidants are disease-fighting and contain anti-inflammatory properties. Some of the compounds are also bioflavonoids, which help to promote optimal internal health.

 

Weight Loss Helpers:

Even though people can use these protein-packed beans to help build muscle, there are others who like to use them for weight loss. In addition to the protein content, the fiber helps to fill you up and make you feel full, which helps to decrease your cravings and caloric intake. One cup of adzuki beans contains about 300 calories, but you’ll feel more satiated when you eat that one cup, as opposed to eating other empty calories like bread, chips, sodas, pizza, or cookies.

 

Better Bone Health:

If you need help strengthening your bones, adzuki beans are your friends. They contain beneficial minerals like copper, zinc, and magnesium, all of which help to prevent bone demineralization and work to boost bone strength.

 

Word to the Wise:

Adzuki beans are typically sold in paste form, which is an acquired taste. Some people may find it unpleasant, but you shouldn’t be afraid of it. We think it tastes pretty good!
