2. Moringa oil for beautiful hair

3. Moringa oil for dry scalp

Another one of wonderful Moringa oil benefits is that the oil is a fantastic moisturiser. Lighter than many other natural oils, Moringa oil is absorbed quickly into the scalp for fast relief of a dry and itchy scalp.

4. Moringa oil soothes minor cuts and burns

Moringa oil benefits also include natural antiseptic qualities and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it an ideal treatment for minor cuts, burns and rashes. It gently soothes pain, reduces inflammation and promotes the healing process.

5. Moringa oil promotes a good night’s sleep

Taken internally, moringa oil is well known for its calming properties and it can help ensure that you get a good night’s sleep. It is also known to help lower and control blood pressure. (Ask the advice of your doctor though, before trying any self treatments.)

6. Moringa oil : an acne treatment

10. Moringa Oil to soothe and soften dry skin and chapped lips

Moringa oil helps soothe dry skin and chapped lips by maintaining moisture and skin softness. It can also be beneficial in treating various skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and can simply rejuvenate dull and tired looking skin, adding beautiful and healthy glow. It can also help reduce acne spots and hyper-pigmentation.

NOTE : Moringa oil, like other many other natural oils, does tend to solidify in cold temperatures.   One can either warm it a little in some warm water or just scoop into the palm of the hand and it is almost instantly ready to apply.

 

 

 

 

and, and ………. one can take Moringa oil as a health supplement or use it in cooking. Similar to olive oil, it can be used as a salad dressing or as a cooking oil and it contains 90 nutrients, as well as omega-3 fatty acids and anti-oxidants.

Stay beautiful!

Did you know …. Diatomaceous Earth (D/E)

 

 

DIATOMACEOUS EARTH – MOTHER NATURE’S WONDERFUL SECRET

Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a powerful, inexpensive solution to most of your health issues. It’s probably the simplest and most straightforward health product out there on the market. It can be used as a beauty product, an internal cleanser, or a deep revitalizer for the whole human body.

There it is—a bit of diatomaceous earth resting at the bottom of my water glass. It might not taste delicious, but its ability to cleanse my body and fill it with sought-after nutrients more than makes up for it.

Where Does DE Come From?

Diatomaceous earth is the waste product of unicellular algae. Over a 30 million year period, it has taken the form of white sedimentary rock that is typically harvested from the bottom of oceans, lakes, and rivers around the globe. After it is harvested and dried, DE is a fine, white dust.

 

 

What Is Diatomaceous Earth Predominantly Used for and Known for at the Present Time?

The usefulness of diatomaceous earth ranges from an internal one (as a natural medicine or supplement), to a solution you can apply in-and-around the house in order to protect yourself from unwanted vermin. DE, amazingly, can also be made into a beauty product with its special and unique properties highly effective against “aesthetic defects” which tend to appear as Father Time catches up with all of us. Here’s a quick list to showcase its numerous benefits:

  • Osteoporosis: As silica helps with the absorption of calcium, taking a silica supplement along with a calcium supplement can effectively offset chronic illnesses like osteoporosis, which are due to chronically depleted calcium stores.
  • Detoxifying the body
  • Losing weight
  • Revitalizing the skin
  • Promoting hair growth
  • As a cough decreasing agent
  • Fighting kidney stones and healing infections of the urinary tract
  • Reducing inflammation in the intestines and stomach
  • Protecting vital lung tissue from pollution and restoring its elasticity
  • Normalizing hemorrhoidal tissue
  • Preventing side-effects of menopause like stress
  • Eliminating bacteria and parasites

Such a powerful force of action begs the question: how can a product do so much without it hurting the organism?

Diatomaceous Earth Is Completely Safe

For example, DE makes your body bug-free, not with a chemical but by physical action. The hundreds of particles that attack the insect are so small, so microscopic, they cause no harm whatsoever to people or pets. So it’s completely safe to ingest orally, as long as it’s food grade!  It can also be an ingredient in natural toothpastes such as this one :

 

 

 

How to Use Diatomaceous Earth (Food Grade)

#1: Internal Use

  1. First week: 1 teaspoon of DE in a glass of water or favorite juice, first thing in the morning (the body needs time to get used to it).
  2. Week 2, 3, and 4: 1 tablespoon of DE in a glass of water, again, first thing in the morning.

The following is only if you wish to do a full detox or have a parasitic infection 

  1. For the next 3 months, take 2-3 tablespoons of DE every single day.

Note: drink a lot of water to help flush out toxic metals and dead parasites out of your system.

#2: External Use

Step 1: Mix diatomaceous earth and some water in a bowl (roughly 1 part DE to 3 parts water).

Step 2: Choose whether you prefer a mask or a facial scrub. If you want a mask, just add more of DE to the mixture. If you want a scrub, just add more water to dilute the solution even more.

Step 3: Whatever you have decided, spread the mixture across your forehead, your nose, your chin, and your cheeks.

Step 4: Leave it on your face for 2-5 minutes, allowing it to dry.

Step 5: Finally, thoroughly wash your face with some water and a wash cloth. And that’s it, my friend. You should be good to go now—your skin, delicately exfoliated by the sweet action of diatomaceous earth.

Diatomaceous Earth inexpensive health benefits

Diatomaceous Earth (D/E) – many benefits  – inexpensive and effective

bug running from diatomaceous earth

What is it?

Diatomaceous earth is often harvested from areas where large bodies of water once stood and is marketed in two grades – industrial and food grade. Industrial grade diatomaceous earth is used for many purposes including water filtration systems in swimming pools. Food grade diatomaceous earth is perhaps best known for its use as a non-toxic insecticide. However, food grade diatomaceous earth offers a host of health benefits too.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The sharp points found on fossilized diatom exoskeletons create a safe and non-toxic strong abrasive that scrubs intestinal walls and cuts up any parasites present in the digestive tract. Additionally, as it passes the digestive tract, it attracts and absorbs pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi. It also absorbs and removes pesticides, heavy metals, and drug residues.

 

HEALTH BENEFITS

Diatomaceous earth also has many health benefits due to its mineral content, which consists of about 85% amorphous silica and approximately 20 trace minerals. The silica in diatomaceous earth is effective in preventing premature aging. Silica can also make age spots fade and also helps to repair and maintain lung tissue elasticity.

 

 

 

Regular intake of diatomaceous earth also has numerous other health benefits, some of which include:

*Lowering blood pressure and bad cholesterol.
*Relieving sore joints.
*Healthier skin and hair.
*Healthier teeth and gums.
*Harder nails.

Diatomaceous earth does not have an unpleasant taste. Simply mix 1 to 2 tablespoons daily in liquid or food. Since diatomaceous earth does not dissolve, it may be necessary to stir a few times while drinking to prevent settling. As some people experience high energy levels, it is best to take it in the morning hours.

PETS

Diatomaceous earth benefits pets and other animals similarly to the way it does humans, and it can have other benefits as well. For example, rubbing diatomaceous earth on their coats will ward off fleas and ticks and given internally, it is an excellent de-wormer.


When giving pets diatomaceous earth orally, just mix it in their food. Kittens should receive 1/4 of a teaspoon while large cats should be given 1 teaspoon.

The dosage for dogs is as follows:

*Very small dogs should receive 1/2 teaspoon.
*Dogs under 50 pounds – 1 teaspoon.
*Dogs 50 to 100 pounds – 1 tablespoon.
*Dogs more than 100 pounds – 1 to 2 tablespoons.

Diatomaceous earth can also be added to kitty litter and pet carriers to reduce odors.

 

 

 

GARDENS

Gardeners can find that diatomaceous earth is a dream come true. The sharp points scratch the exoskeleton of insects, causing them to dry out and die and the powder also absorbs fats (lipids) from the hard exoskeletons of the insects, drying them even further. It makes an excellent pesticide, effectively controlling aphids, thrips, mites, snails, and slugs without harming worms or beneficial soil microorganisms.

 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

(NB there are two grades : food grade and industrial grade)

Industrial grade diatomaceous earth, which has larger quantities of a highly crystallized form of silica, should never be inhaled due to possible health risks for the lungs. When using food grade diatomaceous earth externally, such as in the garden or on pets, it is probably a good idea to wear a dust mask and gloves. Breathing in too much food grade diatomaceous earth may irritate the mucus membranes in the nose and mouth and it may dry out your skin. Once the dust settles, it does not pose a threat. Diatomaceous earth can also dry out your skin.

If a client is pregnant, may be pregnant or may become pregnant during cancer or any disease – it is important for them to understand the following:

Some of the cells in a developing foetus are very similar to cancer cells!!  Alternative cancer people generally call these cells trophoblastic cells.  The important thing to understand is that foetal cells are very similar to these cancer cells.  For example they have high energy, are fast growing and probably have a very low “voltage.  Many herbs used in cancer treatments target cancer cells directly looking for trophoblastic cells – as many foetal cells have the same property the herbs may kill these cells also.  Therefore we do not recommend any of our products to be taken by pregnant women, and that they need to consult with their professional health care practitioner before taking any natural remedy.

Splinter Removal

Splinter Removal

bandage-and-epsom-salts

another method:

A splinter is a fragment of any foreign object that penetrates and becomes lodged inside one’s body. While splinters can come from a variety of materials such as glass, plastic, metal or even the spines of animals, for most people, splinters commonly occur on the fingers and hands from handling some type of plant matter such as a piece of wood.

When one experiences a splinter, pain as the sharp object initially penetrates the skin is usually felt. This is because the object has cut through the cutaneous layer of skin, settling into the subcutaneous layer below. While some splinters stay put at that point, most others will continue to move around, damaging additional tissue in the process.

Splinters that become lodged in the fingers or hand as would happen while doing yard work are usually very easy to remove with a simple needle that has been properly cleaned with alcohol first.

The problem with this approach is that children don’t like it as picking at a splinter with a pointy object can sometimes hurt until part of the splinter is exposed and the rest pulled out with a pair of tweezers.

The second problem with the needle approach is that it doesn’t always work.

This happened to my husband recently when he got a thorn that was about an inch long deeply lodged in his left index finger while doing some yard work.

No matter how hard he tried to dig that thorn out with the traditional needle approach, he could not even find it let alone remove it.

It was just too deep.

At first, he figured the splinter would naturally work its way out.  Splinters sometimes do this – the skin “pushes” them to the surface of the skin where they are easily removed a short time later with tweezers or your fingers.

That didn’t happen with this splinter.  Waiting a few days made the situation much worse as the finger got very sore and began to swell.

I became very concerned at that point because the finger was obviously infected.  I suggested a trip to the doctor, but my husband wasn’t keen on that idea as the (out of network) holistic family doctor we called said it would cost $500 for the office required consultation and subsequent removal of the splinter.

$500 to remove a splinter?  What has happened to healthcare in the USA?  Unbelievable.

I then suggested the walk-in clinic, but my husband didn’t want to go that route unless absolutely necessary as the staff there would no doubt harass him to get a tetanus shot (which he wouldn’t get) and then open the finger with a scalpel and cut away until the thorn was removed.  With the finger already infected, antibiotics would probably be required for recovery.

My husband then had the bright idea to ask his friend who is a veterinarian about the situation.

The vet said that removing a deep splinter is easy with magnesium sulfate, better known as epsom salts.

He said you could either soak the finger a few times a day in a cup of warm water and epsom salts or make a poultice with it.

Sounded easy enough.

My husband decided to go the poultice route.  He took a small pinch of epsom salts, placed it on the bandage section of a regular, large band-aid and wrapped the finger with it. He changed the bandage once a day or after it got wet in the shower.

magnesium sulfate paste

Another option would have been to put a bit of magnesium sulfate paste (which costs just a few dollars) on the area and cover with a bandage (see picture right). Since we didn’t have the paste on hand but did have epsom salt crystals for bathing, we chose to go that route.

Within 2 days, it was apparent that the epsom salts poultice had worked!  The end of that thorn was ever so slightly sticking through the skin!

My husband pulled about 1/3″ of thorn out, but he could tell there was still more in there.

He continued to apply the epsom salts poultice for one more day which caused the rest of the thorn to come to the surface of the skin as well.  He used tweezers to pull the rest of the thorn out, which turned out to be about another 1/2″ in length.

Best of all, the swelling and soreness of the finger quickly resolved with the removal of the thorn.  It has been a couple of months since this happened and the finger is perfectly fine.

I will be using the epsom salts or magnesium sulfate paste on a bandage approach to remove all splinters that occur in our household from now on. I’ve purchased a small bottle of the magnesium sulfate paste, and it is now a permanent part of my medicine cabinet.  This approach suggested by our vet friend is far easier than using needles or enduring the drama of a doctor’s visit and there is surprisingly no pain at all involved.

Warts and all

Garlic – A Natural Treatment For Warts and Corns

 

English: A basket of garlic (allium sativum) o...

Posted By Dr. Ben Kim

Warts are considered non-cancerous skin growths – different strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV) cause warts to form on different areas of the body. Warts that form on the fingers are typically called “common” warts, while those that appear on the soles of the feet are called plantar warts.

About 70 precent of warts dissipate on their own within two years without any treatment, though in some cases, more warts can appear as the initial wart shrinks. Warts can spread by direct contact with scratches or cuts in the skin.

Corns are small collections of thickened skin, typically along the bottoms or sides of the feet – they are typically caused by excessive friction within footwear, usually due to aggressive athletic activity or footwear that doesn’t fit properly.

To treat common warts, plantar warts, and corns without acid, cryotherapy, or excision, all you need are fresh garlic cloves, a knife, and athletic tape.

Start by thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water, and if you have any breaks in your skin, be sure to bandage them up to avoid direct contact with the wart.

Peel one clove of garlic, then cut it in half.

Use the cut side of one portion of garlic to gently rub the wart – the goal is to coat the entire wart with natural garlic juices. Do this for a minute or two, then use athletic tape to affix the remaining fresh garlic half against the wart – be sure to do this with the cut side of the garlic against the wart. You can cut and trim the garlic to cover the wart, but be sure that the portion of garlic that will remain in contact with the wart is a little larger than the wart itself to ensure contact if the garlic shifts.

You can apply this natural garlic treatment to warts and corns before going to bed, then remove it during the day to allow the area to breathe, and continue to reapply using fresh garlic each night.

For a small wart or corn, this garlic treatment will often lead to a complete cure within a week. For larger warts, you may need to continue with garlic application for a few weeks.

I just had a client use this garlic remedy for a large wart on his second toe. Within a few days, his wart shrunk by about half – as his wart shrivelled away, he could see blackening of the roots of the wart. Within a month of daily treatment, his toe was perfectly normal.

Garlic has long been known to have anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties. Koreans eat massive quantities of garlic through many of their staple dishes, kim chi being the most notable one, and epidemiologists in Korea have long believed that this partly explains their better-than-average record of immunity against various air-borne diseases.

A study in the International Journal of Dermatology (2005;44:612–5) confirms that garlic is a useful treatment for warts and corns.
