Lemon juice and peel have an antiseptic effect and leaves of the tree uses to reduce fever. Lemons are rich in vitamin C, strengthening the immune system and act as antioxidant and protects cells from free-radical damage. The lemon can stimulate the appetite, aids digestion, relieves cramps and strengthens the bodies defenses. When ingested internally it has anti-inflammatory action helping to cleanse the body by promoting perspiration and acting as a diuretic.

When picking your perfect lemon, its best to go for organic lemons especially when using the peel, as most fruits (the inside) that have peels are less affected by non organic growing methods. The lemons should be firm and bright with a fine-grained skin. If a lemon is heavy for its size then chances are it is very juicy!

 

Natures Remedies: Honey

The word “honey” comes from ancient hebrew and means “enchant.” Rightfully so, as this time honored natural remedy can be found all over the world and serves many culinary and healing purposes.

 

 

Honey treatment is called apitherapy and helps to replenish energy and enhances physical stamina, strengthens those weakened by illness or stress. It can help calm the mind and promote rejuvenating sleep. It relieves indigestion, treats cardiovascular disease and respiratory complaints. It can disinfect and heal minor skin wounds and chapped lips.

Bees act as a biological filter, they die if they come into contact with toxins because they do not bring pollutants into the hive. That is why honey contains only very slight traces of residues from industrial emissions, car exhaust, agricultural chemicals or others air pollutants.

Uses of Honey:

Culinary sweetener – Honey is an excellent alternative sweetener, use in place of sugar in food and beverages, honey provides a healthy pick-me-up, the glucose and the fructose in honey has been predigested by the bees that produced it. These simple sugars are quickly and easily absorbed in the digestive tract.

Sore Throat – Take orally 1 -2 spoonfuls of honey to coat the throat when it is sore or scratchy

Skin Treatment – Honey has natural antibacterial properties with a germ-killing substance called inhibine, which helps prevents infections. Apply to skin on chapped and dry lips, minor wounds and cuts or as a mask to help with pimples or blemishes. Honey draws excess water from the tissues and reduces swelling.

Honey Bath – Add 2 oz of honey in a glass with 5 drops of lavender oil, heat it by placing the glass in warm water then apply 1 – 2 tbsps to your bath water for relaxation and to combat insomnia.

Asthma, Bronchitis and Respiratory Ailments – Honey can help with coughs and wheezing, mix 1 tsp of finely chopped thyme and add to honey. Take orally to soothe inflammation in the lungs and airways.

There are many varieties of honey available as each honey is different dependent on the types of flowers from which the bees collect the nectar. It’s important to look for beekeepers that do not feed their bees refined sugars or use harmful pesticides!

 

 

The Happy Day Smoothie: Best Morning Smoothie Recipe For Energy and Weight Loss

I was looking for a quick, delicious and nutritious morning breakfast smoothie that would help wake me up and not weigh me down as I started my day. I came up with a combination of ingredients that are easy to get and you can alter to fit your needs while still tasting amazing!

  • What you’ll need:
  • A blender
  • Frozen mixed berries or fruits (you can also get fresh ones)
  • Bananas
  • Maca Powder
  • Cacao Powder
  • Chia Seeds
  • Ground Flax Seed
  • Almond milk or soy milk – you can use water as well

You can get most of these ingredients online or at a local health food store, some grocery stores carry these ingredients like the powders in their health food sections.

How to Make the The Happy Day Smoothie:

I add about 1 cup of berries, two bananas (break them up into pieces so they blend more easily) 2 tbsps of maca powder, 2 tbsps of chia seeds, 1 – 2 tbsps of flax seed and about 2 cups of almond milk. You can add in a ice cube or two. On days that I am very sleepy, I do add in about a 1/2 cup of black coffee to my mix – coffee does have its benefits too, but in moderation. Mix them together into your blender until it is silky smooth. If the smoothie is too thick or chunky for your liking, you can always add some more water or almond milk to thin it out.

I call it the Happy Day Smoothie because you can drink it in the morning to feel good all day or throughout the day as a supplementary meal – since it has plenty of nutrients and vitamins. It is so simple and easy to make, plus it is absolutely scrumptious!

Best Holistic Methods to Cope with Fatigue, Weakness and Listlessness

For a long period of my life, I have dealt with fatigue throughout the day even when I’ve got plenty of sleep the night before or when I am on a healthy sleep schedule. I tried to remedy this through a number of quick fixes whether it be drinking coffee all day long or taking small breaks during the workday by going on a short walk around the area.

There were some days where I was so tired I would use my lunch break to nap in my car. Somedays I would go to work, get home at about 6pm, eat a little dinner and fall back asleep until the following day. It felt like I wasn’t even living my life but just going through the motions like a zombie.

There are a number of approaches you can take to cope with this. I would say first and foremost, what is it that you are doing for work and what sort of environment are you in? Secondly, are there external stresses in your life that are outside of your control that you be expending a lot of emotional and mental energy towards?

Write down a list of the things you enjoy about your job and the things you don’t. Write a plan to change or better your situation and work towards that a little each day when you have the energy to do so. Even looking ahead and beginning to plan, will breathe new life into you, you’ve given yourself something to look forward to. Keep a journal or a BLOG about the thoughts, feelings and experiences you’ve been having that have been causing you stress, add solutions to those issues and if some of them are beyond your ability to change, simply writing them out is a great way to stop them from swirling around in your mind so often.

However, it is a holistic process. Hence, why we are so fatigued or physically weak often. The stresses that happen in our minds can be felt and experienced in our physical world. If we can’t change what is happening in our minds and in our external world immediately. We can find physical methods to cope with these stresses.

The way our energy production is working on a cellular level can be treated. One method is doing some sort of physical exercise in the morning, it can be a soft jog, a brisk walk, a hard run, a bike ride, yoga or even good stretching. At the time this was occurring, I was going to the gym almost every morning and running before work but I obviously needed more.

A balanced diet can help. Take multi-vitamins in the morning after breakfast (do not take them before bed as they can increase energy). A light but nutrient filled breakfast is best. Avoid foods heavy in carbs, salt, fat or sugar. Eat nuts and dried fruit in moderation throughout the day. Brown rice, pineapple, walnuts, sunflower seeds and tofu are good choices to add to your meals. Avoid alcohol, coffee and nicotine as much as possible.

Energize using hot-cold showers. In the morning and when you get home from work, alternate water temperatures in 3 minute intervals, first hot and then cold. Dry off vigorously to stimulate the skin, to increase circulation and to stimulate the lymphatic system.

Essential oil combinations of clove, cinnamon and sage in an oil diffuser or applied directly on the skin can also help.

Breathing exercises can also help – sometimes this goes beyond working out or during meditation by simply focusing on the breath. I have found that quiet meditation relaxes me more than wakes me up. I actually like to play a song I know the words to and sing with it, simply make up one of my own or you can even do vocal toning and mantras to change your breath while also changing your vibration in the process.

Another great way to cope with your fatigue is by finding something you like to do outside of the world of work or staring at a screen whether it’s watching Netflix or going on Facebook and Instagram. Maybe you enjoy painting, sculpting or drawing? Maybe you have a great idea for a novel and want to start writing? Maybe you like to craft – you can start by making your own homemade castile soaps, like I described in my previous blog post.

Shari Kreller – “Crows”

Getting into nature on the weekends or if it’s still daylight after work on a weekday is another great way to revitalize your energy levels. You can start small like taking a walk around a local park at night and work your way up to venturing to nature preserves or hiking destinations.

Maybe you are feeling a little lonely and just need a hug from a friend or some affection from another person. Call a friend or family member up and let them know how youve been feeling and express that you need a hug, I am sure they would be more than happy to give it to you! But sometimes, its hard to ask for that or maybe you don’t have someone in your life you feel comfortable hugging. You can always go to local animal shelter, a pet store or ask a friend with an animal if you can cuddle with their kitten or puppy. Sometimes we just need a little loving.

I have tried all sorts of ways to help with my fatigue – some of them have worked beautifully, by doing one or a combination and other days it seemed like nothing would work and I just needed to rest. The point is to try! Be easy with yourself and find out the best solutions that work for you. I hope this helped!

You can acquire a set of hot massage stones, they are typically oval and round flat and smooth black stones, the most commonly used stones are called Balsalt river rocks. You can heat your stones using an electrical heating device, i’ve used a small crockpot and had the stones soaking in water.

The stones can get very hot so test the temperature periodically and if you are massaging another person make sure you use caution when applying the stones, use a barrier like a cloth between the stones and their skin.

If you reduce the temperature on the stones, you can oil the body using sweet almond oil or coconut oil and gently massage it into the skin beforehand, it allows the stones to move more smoothly over the surface of the bare skin.

The heat helps to sooth and relax the muscles while breaking up the tension in them. It calms the nervous system and increases blood flow to those areas dissipating the tension. When we relax our stress hormones are reduced and it allows us and the practitioner to better feel what the body needs and where it is experiencing pain and tension.

Once the muscles are warmed, it is easier to give a less painful deep tissue massage. Apply the stones to the skin, gently placing them, this is a good technique if you have cramps caused by menstruation. You can also place them gently on other muscles on the back or shoulders, while hand massaging other parts of the body.

Use sweeping movements when massaging with the stones. These help to flush out the lymphatic system and improves circulation. This is where the help in weight loss and nerve damage comes in.

Using hot massage stones is great beginning guide to the art of massage. It is a great way to heal your own pain and tension and it is a great gift to give to a friend or significant other who may be experiencing stress and needs to have a good nights sleep.

 

Make Homemade Castile Soap for Body Odor, Oily Skin, Acne and Calluses

Skin is a sensitive subject for those of us suffering with pimples, acne, rough or oily skin. There are a ton of soaps on the market as miracle treatments for these issues, however, many contain ingredients such as deodorizers, colorants and fragrances that can be drying and damaging to the skin.

 

Homemade Castile soap is an excellent alternative to help those pesky skin issues you may be having and the best part is it made using all natural ingredients and you can make it yourself at home!

Start with pre-made Castile soap flakes, order online or find at a local health store, add your choice of exfoliators, some great choices are oatmeal, cornmeal or coffee grinds, then add your favorite essential oil such as lavender, sweet orange, lemon or peppermint to give it a scent. Some people prefer to not add essential oils allowing the Castile soap to have its natural aroma.

Acne & Oily Skin – Use lavender or tea tree essential oil with powdered cinnamon or cloves

Calluses and rough skin on feet and hands – Use cornmeal and dried peppermint leaves

Dry skin on body or face – Use eucalyptus essential oil with coffee grounds

Strong Body Odor – Use peppermint or patchouli essential oil

Use about six, 6 oz containers, candle molds, bottom halves of pint sized cardboard milk cartons or washed and dried tuna cans work well. Grease your containers with all-vegetable shortening. Boil about 2 quarts of water in a pot and then reduce to medium low heat. Add your Castile soap flakes – add about 1/2 cup at a time.

Fold them into the water gently but do not mix rapidly. Add your choice of exfoliators to the mix, then turn the heat to medium. Remove the pot from the stove and add about 60 drops of your essential oil if you choose to add one. Pour your soap into the containers until 3/4 full and let the soap stand for about 6 hours. You can then use a knife to separate soap from the mold gently. Allow the soaps to air-dry on preferably a drying rack but you can also use a towel for about 24 hours.

 

Castile soaps make great gifts and they can be customized to fit the needs of whoever you are giving them to because you have the flexibility of adding the best essential oils or exfoliating scrubbers for their skin type!
