Grandma’s Flu Shot

What did grandma use to boost her immune system and keep the kiddies from getting sick?Cod liver oil!Cod liver oil is a source of essential vitamins including vitamin D and vitamin A as well as omega-3 fatty acids, which are critically important for cardiovascular, hormonal, immune, reproductive and neurological health.
Vitamin D acts more like a hormone then a vitamin, since it affects neurotransmitters, heart health and inflammation.Low levels of vitamin D are associated with rickets, osteopenia, cancer, autoimmune disease, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, mental illness, rheumatoid arthritis, autism and tuberculosis.

Vitamin A is an antioxidant that is good for eye related disorders, brain health and fights cancer.A teaspoon of cod liver oil has about 90% of your daily requirement.From Dr. Axe, “Vitamins A and D are fat-soluble nutrients often found together in animal foods. Both act like precursors to active hormones, so we produce certain enzymes that convert each o…

Turmeric is the most powerful herb on the planet for combatting disease, there are over 12,000 studies proving the healing power of turmeric and its main component curcumin.This medicinal herb has a long history within Ayurvedic medicine. The benefits of turmeric are numerous and well documented.According to the Mayo clinic, turmeric is a “functional food” defined as having a positive benefit far beyond baseline nutrition. In fact, I am starting to get a little angry that I keep finding these powerful medicines that nobody seems to know about.And you should be too!
According to c_a_n_c_e_r research UK, “A few laboratory studies on c_a_n_c_e_r cells have shown that curcumin has anti-c_a_n_c_e_r effects. It seems to be able to kill c_a_n_c_e_r cells and prevent more from growing. It has the best effects on breast c_a_n_c_e_r, bowel c_a_n_c_e_r, stomach c_a_n_c_e_r and skin c_a_n_c_e_r cells.” A July 2017 animal study by researchers at Baylor Scott & White Research Institute found tha…

Get yourself some Rose Hip Seed Oil, to heal wrinkles and more!

Let me introduce you to Rosehip Seed oil.It is my number one skin care recommendation, with coconut oil being a close second.I would rather clients use the oil directly, rather than products containing it, because you will pay so much more.Also, you run the risk of having a reaction to another ingredient in a product with many ingredients.For the winter months, I recommend using Rosehip Seed oil as a “serum” to be followed by Coconut oil.This is because RHS oil is considered a “dry” oil, which absorbs deeply into the skin.It is derived from the rosa canina bush from Chile.Rosehips are the bulbs that are left after a rose drops it petals.This oil is different and MUCH less expensive then the essential oil of rose, which comes from rose petals, and does NOT smell rosy.
According to Dr. Axe, “For facial skin care, rosehip oil offers several benefits when applied externally. It protects the skin and increases cell turnover because it contains beta carotene (a form of vitamin A), vitamin C …

Ok, this is my blog on Broccoli Sprouts whose active ingredient, SULFORAPHANE (SFN) is incredible, I just could not wait until Wednesday!It is derived from glucoraphanin and found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale .Cutting, chewing, or otherwise disrupting the broccoli plant cells initiates the production of sulforaphane.Sulforaphane has antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-c_a_n_c_e_r, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, neuroprotective, and anti-diabetic properties [1]. Apart from sulforaphane, broccoli sprouts contain many other bioactive, health-promoting compounds, such as gallic, chlorogenic, ferulic, sinapinic, benzoic and salicylic acids, quercetin, kaempferol, and vitamin C .
Sulforaphane also protects against cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases [1].
There are so many studies, I am simply going to list the benefits:
1.Kills c-a-n-c-e-r - Subjects who consumed at least one portion of cruciferous vegetables per week had a…
