Treating arthritis with natural product

Rheumatoid arthritis hands and fruits. Apple in hand

Today more than a third of the population suffers from arthritic pain. Although often true, you have to realize it is not necessarily arthritis. For starters, it is very important to know the difference between arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Arthritis is an inflammatory pain. It is caused by inflammation of the joints. As such, it can cause pain even at rest. It is a pain which can appear throughout the body and can also reach the organs. They tend to decrease with physical activity and be more intense at rest.

Osteoarthritis is a more mechanical pain, which is due to an alteration of the cartilage that, by dint of wear, disappears and leaves the bones in contact with other unprotected bones directly between. It is more likely to cause pain at movement. This chronic and degenerative disease of the joints, unlike arthritis, usually affects the hands and back.

To prevent arthritis, the most effective way is certainly to maintain a healthy weight but also to pay attention to food. Priotizing a diet rich in antioxidants, fruits and vegetables and low in processed foods and red meat, substantially prevents the risk of developing a form of arthritis in his life.

Otherwise arthritis can also be caused by inadequate physical effort, repetitive movements and change of seasons.

How to relieve arthritis pain?

• Plenty of rest and relaxation: the lack of sleep and fatigue may increase the pain associated with arthritis.
• Avoid refined foods, sugars and red meats. Establish a diet rich in protein, amino acid and antioxidants.
• Physical activity and posture exercise like yoga, stretching and swimming.
• Use specialties such as massage therapy, osteopathy, acupuncture etc …
• Dietary supplement such as calcium, magnesium, glucosamine, chondroitin and silicon.

Also, there’s a plethora of effective natural products:

UNA  de Gato: powerful anti-inflammatory that relieves pain by decreasing inflammation in the body.
FORMULA # 11 is known to regenerate bone, nerves, tissues, cartilage and it very quickly. It is a powerful ally for arthritis but also for osteoarthritis.
Arthrex is also very interesting because it contains anti-inflammatory plants but also glucosamine.

Otherwise, remember to drink lots of water and avoid unnecessary stress. You’ll be less tense and you will feel way much better! Hope these tips help. Don’t hesitate to reach out for more info on natural treatment for arthritis.

Do not underestimate the health of your bones!

Collage of products containing calcium

Picture this scenario: it’s mid-January, sidewalks are icy. On the other side of the road, you see an uneased face, walking tentatively on the slippery road. There’s a good chance it’s an elderly person, but most of us could fall victim to that icy sidewalk!

Ah, the fear of falling on the ice, causing one or more fractures. Although many women have osteoporosis, it doesn’t mean you have to be suffering from this disease to have brittle bones. Let’s be honest, the bones are of crucial importance within the human body.

In fact, they represent the structure on which the body rest and to which the muscles are attached. In addition, they have a role of protector of your organs. Moreover, they store calcium that your body will eventually use.

The bones are not a static structure. They are constantly changing, as and when the bones are renewed and replenished.

Bone health is essential and it starts with a healthy bone mass. Several factors come into play and must be respected to avoid breaking them into pieces during a simple fall.

The importance of your diet

You should eat well, plenty of proteins and ensure a sufficient supply of good calcium.

Your activity level

Always keep a stable and equal level of daily physical activity, such as taking a walk after dinner. Take supplements of calcium and organic silicon each day especially after the age of 30 (CA-W).

It is best to start early and build a healthy bone mass in childhood and adolescence, but there are also some steps you can take during adult life to protect your bones.

For most of us, the arrival of autumn is a particular period of the year. The light and heat of the sun is less intense and the days are becoming shorter. This inevitably reminds us of the coming of winter.

This lack of light slows down our metabolism and makes it lethargic. Rare are those who can put a name to what happens to them. And yet, 18% of Canadians are suffering from the winter blues.

What is seasonal depression?

SAD (Seasonal affective disorder) is a form of recurrent depression that always occurs during the same period each year.

Many people who suffer from SAD are experiencing changes in terms of appetite, weight, sleep, mood and energy.

Hormonal imbalances can eventually cause symptoms related to depression.

  • Increased sleep time, difficulty getting out of bed
  • Decreased concentration
  • Have the impression of being idle or be agitated
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, suicidal thoughts or death.

What to do to avoid suffering from SAD (Seasonal affective disorder)?

Because, this disorder is due to the decrease in the time of sunshine, light therapy is one of the indicated treatments.

Also, exercise: go outside to properly oxygenate, do activities, see friends, the use of medicinal plants, vitamins and minerals such as: B complex vitamins, calcium, magnesium, zinc and omega-3, are also suggested.

In addition, it is important to increase the intake of proteins, reducing sugars, change your diet and drink plenty of water.

They are often unknown to most people and cause symptoms that often resemble those of AD/HD. In addition, a lack of vitamins or minerals, a diet high in carbohydrates, refined foods and food intolerances may be the cause of such symptoms.

Abuse and excess during the holidays

Holiday Dinner Plate Setting

Although we tend to eat well, the holiday season is more about quantity and less about quality. Too many sweets, saturated fat, hydrogenated fatty dairy products and not enough fiber, fruits, and vegetables. The important thing at this time is to share, to take pleasure in eating with others and to have fun.
Effectively, the balance of the digestive system is an essential key to vitality and overall good health. Proper digestion allows us to efficiently assimilate all the good nutrients essential to metabolism. Proper digestion not only serves to nourish and give us energy, but also provides our body with protective antioxidants and immune stimulants. Proper Digestion helps to eliminate organic waste toxins and pollutants as well. Healthy digestion balances and strengthens the intestinal flora, so important for health. Finally, proper digestion helps us to maintain a healthy weight and a flat stomach, synonymous with vitality, well-being and a positive self-image!
Here are some natural recipes to help you maintain or recover a good digestive balance:
– Bloating/swollen stomach after meals, digestion time is often extended: use the relief provided by bitter digestive plants effective on the liver, pancreas, stomach (MILK THISTLE, CHICORY, LG-W FORM DEP and CCE-W) .
Use this cure for a minimum of one month. A dose of one of these products (approximately 2 droppers), two to three times per day.
Additionally, you can take a dose of probiotics in the morning or evening. Drink plenty of water during the treatment and ensure that the intestines are working properly.
– If the bloating is caused by irritation due to stress caused by extra work, long to do lists with little time or planning celebrations etc. Take one of the following combinations as well: NW, DAN-C, BB-W, or, one of the following plants: VERVEINE BLUE OR skullcap.
– If you have a tendency to experience constipation, slow/difficult digestion, inner stress, or hidden anxiety: perform a liver drainage with a mixture of laxative plants (CASCARA, PSYLLIUM +3 or +4 PSYLLIUM or CCE-W) in the evening with water for a few days.

Manage the stress of the holiday season.

young girl is stressed with christmas

Often, the period before Christmas gives rise to rather destructive “outbreaks of stress”.  People want everything to be perfect in fear of disappointing friends or family. Whether it is gifts, food or clothing, it is often a race against time that may cause extreme exhaustion for some people.
In the days leading up to Christmas, shopping center parking lots are crowded and everyone is in a rush. It is very easy to find ourselves with long shopping and to do lists with very little time to complete them. All that stress can have devastating effects on our health. Also, be aware that taking care of the nervous system throughout the year, allows our body to react better during stressful periods. Stress is responsible for a host of ailments and illnesses and people are often wrongly medicated. In fact, stress has harmful effects on all systems of the body.
To avoid suffering the consequences of stress, we recommend the following plants: Skullcap is a plant called Tonic CNS (central nervous system). It nourishes the nervous system and thus will help you get through this period without much hassle. Blue Verbena is a plant of choice for this time of year because it acts on the nervous system fatigue. (Calms tensions and restores vigor to a breathless body)
We also have several combinations that contain many of the most effective herbs for the nervous system: NW (insomnia), DAN-C (depression), BN.CW (brain and concentration), BW (vit b) and many others.

Cardiovascular system:  Under the effect of adrenaline, the heart is ordered to contract more rapidly. This reaction is intended to send more blood to the muscles in order to ensure a more adequate response. The heart is working more as a result of stress which may cause irregular heartbeat or racing. Angina is also a danger, as well as high blood pressure. In severe cases of anxiety, there is often the risk of heart attack. As a reaction to stress blood pressure increases to activate blood circulation and provide more oxygen to the muscles. Cortisol is also produced to increase blood sugar which in effect may cause hardening of the arteries.  Blood vessels may also be damaged as they contract in order to reduce bleeding which may result from an injury. As vessels contract the skin is mal-nourished causing problems such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, and others. Furthermore, under the effect of stress, the body releases more fat into the blood stream to provide more energy. This fat can be deposited into the blood vessels and reduce their size. The body also produces more coagulants to prepare and respond to sites where an injury might occur. These coagulants thicken the blood and increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

LUNGS: Breathing rates increase as a result of stress in order to provide oxygen to the muscles in action. For people who have chronic respiratory problems such as asthma, it can become difficult to breathe normally. One may also experience hyperventilation and dizziness problems.

DIGESTIVE SYSTEM: Under the effects of stress, digestion slows or even stops. People who are frequently stressed cannot digest normally, which can lead to problems with nutrition. Stress can also cause constipation or diarrhea.

KIDNEYS: The effectiveness of the kidneys are reduced by the effect of stress because they receive less blood. The body favors certain organs during stress to the detriment of others. In effect the disposal of waste from the body is less efficient and therefore the risk of intoxication is accentuated.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Stress can weaken the immune system due to the activation of adrenocortical hormones, because the body is not able to devote all the necessary energy. It becomes more susceptible to colds, flu and all infectious diseases. Viral conditions such as herpes can also occur more frequently. Moreover, allergic reactions can also be triggered. It was found that patients with low levels of stress suppressed four times more viruses than others.

REPRODUCTIVE: Stress can suppress the production of sex hormones and thus lower the libido. It may also aggravate markedly symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome and menopause. Thus, mood swings and hot flashes can be much more frequent and more pronounced. Stress can also cause irregular menstruation. In humans, stress impairs erections and reduces the number of sperm produced.

LIVER: Fat reserves are mobilized and the liver causes increased blood cholesterol levels. This excess cholesterol in turn may lead to obstruction of the arteries.

IMPAIRED MENTAL FUNCTIONS: Stress significantly reduces the effectiveness of mental faculties. Indeed, there is, among others, a net reduction in levels of concentration. In addition, the quality of intellectual work is greatly reduced. Stress also makes people more distracted and indecisive.

THE NERVOUS SYSTEM: Stress disrupts the proper functioning of the nervous system. It accentuates states of anxiety and depression, as well as panic attacks. The sleep disorder insomnia can also be aggravated by increasing nightmares. It causes headaches and impairs the ability to relax properly. Stress also causes muscle tension, especially in the area around the neck and trapezium and can lead to the abuse of alcohol and drugs.

So, give yourself a gift and try to stay relaxed this year …
Happy Holidays!

How to survive winter, cold and flu

shutterstock_86255134

According to Health Canada, the flu and cold season starts in November and ends in April. The flu is a respiratory disease that affects millions of Canadians each year.

A cold is a minor infection of the upper respiratory tract that can be caused by different viruses.

How do we differentiate the symptoms?

It is easy to confuse the symptoms of colds and of the flu. Here is a chart that will help you understand the difference between the two:

 

 

Symptoms Cold Flu
Fever Rare Frequent, high(100.4 ° F, 38-40 ° C) and persistent (3-4 days)
Muscle aches and pain Rare and light Frequent and severe
Chills Light Frequent
Fatigue, weakness Often light Intense and persistent(up to 2 to 3 weeks)
Nasal congestion and runny nose Frequent Rare
Sneezing Typical Sometimes
Sore throat Frequent, usually disappears after 3 days Rare
Headaches Rare Frequent and intense
Cough Typical, but light Usually lasts about a week
Chest pain Rare, light to moderate Typical and sometime very intense

 

Today, our world is a place full of viruses, bacteria, and potentially dangerous fungi that can have a detrimental effect on the body and can cause severe disease.

According to INSERM (National Institute of Health and Medical Research), about one in seven cancers have human origins; viral infection, bacterial or parasitic.

 

To protect

Help your immune system fight infectious diseases and it will help you in return. A daily dose of the combination IM.S.-W or Special Wild Cherry (Vitamin C Concentrate) is a high-caliber weapon to prevent and combat bacteria and viruses of all kinds. (Yes! Yes! Even for the Ebola virus).

However, if the infection is already contracted, the following items are recommended:

• IM.S.-W increases the defenses of the immune system and helps fight viral infections.

• ETI-W: natural antibiotic (ear infection, tonsillitis, bronchitis, etc.).

• SPECIAL WILD CHERRY: Cough syrup, natural antibiotic, dissolves mucus, corrects respiratory infections.

 

Is fever a dangerous symptom?

Fever is usually a symptom that causes anxiety for the patient or his/her relatives. Never use Tempra, Tylenol or others to lower the fever.

Fever is classified as a temperature above normal or 37.7 degrees Celsius (or about 100 degrees Fahrenheit). Moderate fever is a healthy bodily reaction to an attack. The temperature rise is a defense of the body, particularly effective and necessary when there is an infection.
