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.

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.

6 Foods That Help To Boost Your Memoryhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/6-foods-that-help-to-boost-your-memory/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/6-foods-that-help-to-boost-your-memory/#comments Thu, 18 Jan 2018 12:15:47 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=76003 You can naturally improve your brain function and decrease your risk of Alzheimer's disease when you eat these healthy brain-boosting foods.

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.

The Best Foods To Eat Before You Exercisehttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-foods-to-eat-before-you-exercise/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/the-best-foods-to-eat-before-you-exercise/#comments Wed, 17 Jan 2018 09:00:30 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75859 Eating the right food before you exercise can dictate how your workout will go. Eat these plant-based foods to have the best results.

What should you eat before you exercise? This is an important question. You want something that is going to give you energy, but you also need something that your body can use efficiently. We mean that you need to eat something that the body can easily process. For example, you don’t want to eat a burger prior to your workout because: a) it isn’t good for your health; and b) the body cannot properly digest or process it.

 

Some athletes (endurance athletes in particular) need to eat while they work out. Exercising intensely for 90 minutes or longer burns through stored electrolytes and glycogen. To help maintain these levels, it becomes necessary to eat foods or drink beverages that are high in easily digestible nutrients. These foods are also beneficial to eat prior to exercising. Eat the following foods about 30 minutes before your workout to stock up on natural carbs and electrolytes.

 

Figs:

These are almost too easy to eat because they are so delicious. Offering a multitude of nutrients, including vitamins A, C, B-vitamins, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, dried figs help to strengthen bones and improve digestion. They also work to reduce your risk of hypertension and vision loss. Make sure to buy them unsulfured and without added sugars if you are eating dried figs.

 

Apples & Nut Butter:

Apples are beneficial to eat before working out because they give you a little energy boost. Enhance this snack by dipping the apple slices in raw nut butter. This will give you a protein boost that your body can easily absorb.

 

Bananas:

Because bananas are loaded with potassium, they help to prevent muscle cramps, which is only one reason why you should eat them before exercising. Plus, you lose potassium when you sweat and these levels need to be full. Bananas also help to improve kidney disorders and they can aid in getting rid of water weight.

 

Homemade Energy Bars:

We recommend making your own energy bars or bites because you know exactly what goes in them. A lot of mainstream protein/energy bars contain chemicals or processed ingredients. You can use unsweetened dried fruit (free of sulfur) and raw nuts & seeds to make some pretty delicious bars that fuel your workouts. Try these ones!

 

Dates:

You can actually use dried dates in those energy bites we just mentioned! They are great to eat before exercising because they contain vitamin K, potassium, manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium, in addition to B-vitamins. These can increase bone strength, maintain healthy weight, and help you decrease allergic reactions.

 

Oats With Fruit, Nuts, or Seeds:

Oats are filled with complex carbs that give you long-lasting energy. By adding fresh fruit, raw nuts, or seeds, you give yourself extra fiber, protein, and other beneficial nutrients that your body can use for energy.
