Subject: What are the best clove substitutes?





Cloves are a spice that can be added to soups, stews and other dishes to add flavor. However, if a recipe calls for cloves and you do not have any on hand there are other substitutes that you can use. Allspice is an easy substitute because both spices come from the same family. Cardamom is another substitute but does not taste quite as sweet. Use cardamom in conjunction with cinnamon as a substitute for clove, but use less than the cardamom than cloves.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cloves have found much uses by humans. They are not only used in soups and stews, but also used to treat conditions like cancer, diabetes, or obesity.
  • When tasted, cloves taste bitter and some people describe the flavor as being hot. Cloves also have a strong, pungent, and sweet aroma.
  • Allspice can be used as a substitute for cloves because they belong to the same family and it is called allspice due to the combined smell of other spices.

"Allspice can be used to treat bloating, cramping, diarrhea, excessive flatulence, nausea, and vomiting."

In today's health world, the agenda has been hydration, drink more water. While minerals and different things have been added to commercially sold water to enhance flavor, little of it if any helps with health issues. Latest trends have been for people to add their own things, such as whole berries, citrus fruit slices or cucumber. But there is a value to spice, and ginger is gold. Ginger has anti inflammatory properties that can help relieve symptoms of swelling and gout in joints, but so much more. Ginger water can soothe an upset stomach, help balance blood sugars,relieve menstrual cramps, and even help fight off several chronic diseases.

Key Takeaways:

  • To gain more from the benefits that this spice can give, one should drink plain ginger water because adding artificial sweeteners can result in bloating.
  • It has been found that consuming ginger can help improve blood sugar. A study found that it helped diabetic patients with their glycemic indices.
  • Ginger can help patients with chemotherapy because it eases morning sickness and nausea that might be caused by having chemotherapy.

"Ginger is a spice that offers many health benefits and it can be used to enhance the flavor of various dishes."

  • Potassium also aids in the regulation of blood pressure, the contractors of muscles and the transmission of electric nerve impulses.
  • A severe lack of the mineral can lead to exhaustion, vomiting, nausea and constipation.

Subject: Is magnesium the secret to ending PMS? Vitamin eases headaches andCRAMPs





The vast majority of women will suffer from common PMS symptoms like cramps, insomnia, headaches, anxiety and mood swings. Roughly five percent of women will suffer more serious symptoms — known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder — involving anger and depression. However, studies suggest that women who take a daily magnesium supplement suffer from less severe PMS symptoms, possibly because magnesium helps promote higher levels of gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter which helps regulate sleep. Women who experience exhaustion as a central PMS symptom are particularly likely to need more magnesium.

Key Takeaways:

  • Seventy-five percent of women suffer from PMS at some point during their life.
  • Magnesium research suggests that it can help with restful nights sleep, reduce the symptoms of pain and tiredness, as well as migraines and mood swings.
  • Research suggests that individuals who received a magnesium supplement saw improvement with PMS symptoms and lowered depression and anxiety.

"According to PubMed Health, during this time, some women feel a wide range of physical discomforts, such as abdominal pain, abdominal cramping, backache, headaches, bloating, weight gain, breast tenderness, possible sleeping issues and digestive discomfort."

Subject: Double-blind clinical trial validates cinnamon as natural treatmentfor primary dysmenorrhea





According to recent studies by Iranian researchers, cinnamon may be an effective natural remedy for symptoms of primary dysmenorrhea, the painful and sometimes debilitating lower abdominal cramps that some women get in association with their periods. The researchers performed a double-blind, randomized study in which women were given either a placebo or 1000 mg cinnamon capsules during the first three days of their periods. The group that got the cinnamon showed a much higher decrease in their dysmenorrhea symptoms, suggesting that cinnamon holds promise as a form of relief.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from two research institutions in Iran have found that women who have dysmenorrheal can find cinnamon to be of great relief to them.
  • Primary dysmenorrheal is referred to as the pain that many women experience before or during their menstrual period which pain can be severe or mild.
  • The researchers created two groups and it was found in the treatment group who were given cinnamon that they had greater improvement in treatment than the placebo group.

"The Iranian researchers carried out a randomized, double-blind clinical trial to determine the effect of cinnamon on dysmenorrhea. In conducting the study, they divided their women participants into two groups: a treatment group and a control group."

Is Your Body Too Alkaline Or Too Acidic? Here’s How To Know

Your body needs to maintain a neutral pH of 7.365 to remain in peak health. If your body becomes too acidic, as through too much consumption of meat, dairy, grain or processed foods, it can leach nutrients out of your system and cause inflammation, poor immunity and other ailments. Becoming too alkaline can also cause problems, including cramping, irritability and cramping. Generally, your diet should contain about 80% alkaline (fresh fruits and vegetable) and 20% acidic (everything else) foods in order to preserve the. A rural balance inside your body.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is important to keep your body’s pH as close to neutral as possible, since being too acidic or alkaline can cause health problems.
  • Meat, milk, sugar and processed foods make your body too acidic, which can cause inflammation and make you less resistant to infection.
  • It is also possible for your body to become alkaline, which results in symptoms like craps, muscle spasms and irritability.

"It’s all about finding that optimal acid-base balance and more importantly, understanding when your body is imbalanced."

Australian father treats his daughters' Chron's disease by juicing cannabis... then gets raided by the government

As a parent, what would one not do to prevent a beloved child from suffering? One Australian father chose to break the law. Stephen Taylor is the father of two daughters, both afflicted with a very serious and chronic gastrointestinal disease that routinely causes fatigue, cramping, diarrhea, and even hemorrhaging.

The girls, Ariel and Morgan, had both failed to thrive while under conventional treatment options, even acquiring horrible side effects. So, Taylor took matters into his own hands. He tried and was unable to obtain legal permission to administer medical marijuana to his daughters. So, Taylor placed the girls on a regimen of home-grown cannabis juice on his own. The regimen proved efficacious, with both girls obtaining stellar results. Unfortunately, however, the authorities caught on, impounding the marijuana and charging Taylor.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sufferers of Chron's disease typically experience, abdominal pain, exhaustion, weight loss, cramping, diarrhea and bleeding through the rectum.
  • One Australian father to daughters afflicted with Chron's placed his girls on a regiman of home-grown cannabis juice, with excellent results.
  • Unfortunately, the authorities caught on and impounded the cannabis and charged the father with criminal charges.

"Even though medical marijuana use has been legal in Australia since 2016, it is very difficult to obtain. Though experts estimate that around 100,000 Australians are self-medicating with cannabis for a variety of health problems, only 500 patients have official government authorization to do so."

CBD Success Stories: How Cannabidiol Improves Lives

Subject: CBD Success Stories: How Cannabidiol Improves Lives





The cannabidol plant (CBD) is something that not every person knows about. The human body naturally produces CBD and has CBD receptors in the brain. CBD based products have been shown to have use across a variety of medical contexts, including relief from severe pain caused by migraines, nerve injuries and menstrual cramps. CBD has also demonstrated its effectiveness in combating skin problems and helping individuals sleep, without the same hangover type effect caused by THC. CBD has proven to be a much more effective alternative to traditional pharmaceutical pain killers, without the harmful side effects caused by those medicines. Finally, CBD has been used as an ingredient in massage oil and lubricants to aid with the process of relaxation, and in some cases, romance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cannabinoid receptors are already present in our bodies from birth.
  • Our bodies can create our own CBD from birth, which will attach to our cannabinoid receptors.
  • Use of cannabinoid oils allows for a more natural approach to pain management, as our bodies already have receptors ready to deal with an influx of cannabinoids.

"As lucky as we are to live in Colorado's cannabis haven, it's important to arm ourselves with knowledge about CBD and its healing effects."

A new study has shown that broccoli may be able to slow and even reverse type-2 diabetes, which accounts for 90 to 95 percent of those diagnosed with diabetes. The pharmaceutical approach, a drug called metformin cannot be used on some people because of the risks of kidney damage. The side effects of this drug are not pleasant, and include abdominal discomfort, muscle pain, and cramping. Researchers have determined that sulforaphane, which occurs naturally in broccoli is able to lower over-expressed high glucose genes that cause diabetes. With this discovery, researchers are hoping to stop the problem early and treat prediabetic patients using broccoli, thus avoiding type-2 diabetes altogether.

Key Takeaways:

  • specific vegetables such as broccoli helps patients with type-2 diabetes control their levels of sugar
  • type-2 diabetes is the most common form that people have been diagnosed with it and 90 percent of the people are living with type-2 diabetes
  • scientists discovered the fact that 1,720 genes are linked to hyperglycemia which causes extra glucose to linger in the blood

Subject: Why do my feet always CRAMP during workouts?





Cramping in the legs can happen with dehydration caused by exercising and sweating but cramping in the feet can have a different source. Tight footwear can often be the problem because the feet can swell when they heat up. Pressure on the top of the foot can cause cramping. Keeping the top of the shoe loose can help prevent the pressure. Occasional cramping can be relieved by rolling the foot on a ball and massaging the foot, but a podiatrist may need to be consulted.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dehydration can come into play with any type of muscle cramp
  • when it comes to your feet specifically, the most likely culprit is ill-fitting shoes
  • if you don’t have proper arch support, your shoes will bend too much midfoot, potentially leading to overuse injuries

"Your muscles need water to function properly, so when we sweat, they’re getting less and less water, becoming tighter and tighter, which can lead to contractions within the muscle"

Subject: Relieve the Holiday Stress with Magnesium

The holiday season is meant for having quality time with friends and family, going on an adventure, taking time off work and so on. However, it can also be very stressful given the many guests to entertain, tight budget to stick to, preparing family meals, the shopping craze and so much more. It is important to gain control in this period of the year since too much stress can lead to depression alongside other physical and psychological issues. Fortunately, we have magnesium, the original chill pill, to get you back into the holiday cheer.

Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a huge role in cell functioning and relaxation. It has been used in hospitals to treat a myriad of complications including anxiety, irritability, muscle CRAMPs and headaches. Magnesium accounts for over 250 enzyme reactions in our bodies and regulates the secretion of stress hormones. It is basically the fuel that your body runs on and hence its deficiency will lead to undesirable symptoms like brain fog, anxiety, aggression and fatigue among others. Modern farming and lifestyle changes have led to rather low levels of magnesium in our bodies as compared to decades ago. Magnesium will particularly be used up in greater quantities by your body during periods of extreme stress like this holiday season. This will usually translate in poor stress management, thus the more reason you should take some magnesium.

Some of the magnesium-rich foods include parsley, avocado, bananas, kelp, leafy greens like spinach, soy beans, brown rice, cashews and almond. In addition to providing this crucial mineral these foods also pack other nutritional benefits. Alternatively, you can also take a magnesium supplement like magnesium citrate and magnesium oxide to help rid some of that holiday stress. Lastly, taking baths in Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) is also a great stress reliever plus it works wonders in treating colds, detoxifying the body, relieving back pain and sore muscles.

Ginger root: a homemade remedy for stomach pain and nausea

Subject: Ginger root: a homemade remedy for stomach pain and nausea

A fragrant homemade remedy for an upset stomach is ginger. There are several properties that make ginger root a stomach pain soother. Researches have shown that ginger root has proved effective in getting rid of nausea while pregnancy. It is more effective than any anti inflammatory drug. Ginger root can alleviate the pain and discomfort in your abdomen in many ways. One gram of ginger taken in the form of tea, ale, salad, juice or soup is as efficacious as the anti-nausea drug, dimenhydrinate because it has lesser side effects. Ginger root is a better cure for nausea than vitamin B6. Ginger has reduced nausea due to chemotherapy in many cases.

The healing spice, ginger has anti-inflammatory properties which helps it in increasing the digestive juices, neutralizing the stomach, thus soothing the stomach pain. Ginger helps in the secretion of some digestive juices and enzymes that neutralize the stomach. The root of ginger contains two chemicals: gingerols and shogaols. These are antioxidants that reduce the free radical production, thus protecting the body from them. 

When we use ginger root to treat stomach pain, these two chemicals soothe the intestinal tract, in order to prevent motion sickness and relieve the person from vomiting, stomach CRAMPs, diarrhea and nausea. As the intestinal tract gets relaxed, the person is instantly relieved of pain. It causes elimination of any extra gas from the intestinal tract. Ginger root help in the quick flow of food in the stomach through the digestive tract by facilitating better absorption of nutrients. It aids in the production of bile, saliva and other gastric juices for better digestion and prevention of gas. The muscles are relaxed because of the phenols present in ginger root, that act like a sedative. Any over activity of stomach is prevented. The stomach CRAMPs are prevented because ginger reduces the food from backing up in the digestive system. These phenols also help in quick movement of food and toxins in intestine and digestive system. Besides, ginger root helps in improving blood circulation and decreasing inflammation.

Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

Subject: Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

The human body is an extremely complex system of checks and balances that's held in a very delicate state of equilibrium. It's hard to understand at times but with the patience of science, we can usually get to the bottom of whichever mysteries our bodies will present us with.

One of the mysteries that some people might find themselves faced with at some point in their lives is that of gaining weight for no reason. Diets and exercise will seem not to work. A possible culprit might be found in a small organ known as the thyroid gland. Let’s have a closer look at it and how it may be affecting your metabolism and weight.


How the Thyroid Gland Works

The thyroid is the largest gland in your endocrine system of glands and is located right in the middle of your neck just below the Adam’s apple in men. Endocrine glands refer to glands that secrete hormones in the human body. The thyroid gland produces the hormones Thyroxine and Triiodothyronine, which are referred to as the thyroid hormones. These hormones play a significant role in your energy regulation and metabolism functions by prompting almost every cell in your body to increase its activity. This is essentially what your metabolic rate is. There are three basic categories of problems that can occur in your thyroid gland, as follow:

  • Hypothyroidism or Underactivity – too little thyroid hormones produced
  • Hyperthyroidism or Overactivity – too much thyroid hormones produced
  • Growths – include benign cysts and nodules as well as cancers of the thyroid gland

The Thyroid Gland and Weight Gain

When too little thyroid hormone is being produced in a patient, their metabolic rate will slow down, meaning that the body’s cell will not be burning up calories at their optimum rate. This will lead to these unspent calories being deposited throughout the body in the form of fat. The person affected might find themselves suddenly gaining weight without any apparent changes in their lifestyle or eating habits. This is also why dieting and exercise may not have the desired effect on the patient.

The symptoms of an underactive thyroid can be very vague because the hormone acts throughout the body but should you find yourself experiencing some of these, consider testing specifically for hypothyroidism:

  • General weakness
  • Cold intolerance
  • Heightened cholesterol levels
  • Fatigue
  • Sleepiness
  • Constipation
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness
  • Heavy menses
  • Coarse, dry hair and skin
  • Weight gain
  • Changes in blood pressure
  • Depression and/or irritability
  • Muscle CRAMPs and aches
  • Swelling in legs (edema)
  • Blurred vision
  • Hoarse voice and sore throat
  • Hair loss (on head and/or body)

The Question is can you get all the probiotics you need from yogurt?

Well, you'll get some probiotics from yogurt, but it won't be the same as what you'll get in a name brand probiotic supplement.  While most yogurts measure their probiotic count in the millions, by the time it gets through the digestive system, it'll be a lot less.  By contrast, name brand probiotics like Europharma's colon & bowel probiotic provide 20 billion probiotic bacteria in just one capsule. 

For reference, it takes 1,000 million to make even one billion.

Don't forget calories, consuming yogurt adds calories to ones diet,  with todays overweight America, why should you have to consume calories to get your beneficial bacteria?  Taking Enteric Coated probiotic, provides the probiotics where it is needed in the small and large intestines, and contains zero calories.

High potency Probiotics Can Relieve:

  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • CRAMPing
  • Irregularity
  • Constipation

Subject: Botanical benefits buchu leaves

Giving off a sweet, peppermint fragrance, buchu or Agothosma Betulina has been part of the indigenous culture and heritage of South Africa for more than three centuries. Its earliest documentation dates back to 1652 when the Khoisan bushmen first introduced this versatile plant to the Dutch colonists.

Today, it is a well-recognised culinary leaf-spice commonly featured on the menus of top South African restaurants. But apart from its contemporary culinary uses, did you know that it is chock-full of health benefits too?

This herb contains antibacterial, antifungal and antispasmodic properties, providing relief to pre-menstrual CRAMPing and bloating. What’s more, these unassuming leaves have also been used in Western herbal medicine to relieve inflammation, treat kidney, urinary infections, used as a diuretic, as well as a stomach tonic. Like many natural diuretics, buchu doesn’t seem to lower potassium levels like some drugs do.

It is no wonder the early Khoisans championed this healing herb as an elixir of youth!

This can prompt an issue with the data pathway between the cerebrum and the gut, bringing about modifying intestinal capacity.

Side effects of lactoferrin

Side effects could be a consequence of a contaminating or disturbance in the stomach and insides from microorganisms or other destructive creatures. One study demonstrated that individuals who had an episode of gastroenteritis were ten times more inclined to create touchy inside disorder. An alternate condition, called small digestive tract bacterial excess, is truly regular in individuals with IBS. An excess or change in the kind of microorganisms in the small digestive tract causes aggravation and indications of loose bowels, over abundance gas, weight reduction, and dietary lacks. Some gastrointestinal manifestations could be because of the abundance of yeast (candida). Intestinal candidiasis can result in indications of bloating, gas, the runs, blockage, and CRAMPing, alongside exhaustion.

Lactoferrin helps the side effects by:

1. Tying to free iron drifting around. This is essential on the grounds that most microbes and candida need iron to develop. Free iron meddles with our resistant cell work, so this viably starves the destructive life forms while keeping our invulnerable frameworks solid.

2. Entering the microbes or candida and harming their phone layer. This will either murder them straightforwardly, or it meddle with their vitality and debilitate them.
