|Healthy Healing Blog Herbal Preparation & Delivery Methods Today, herbs are available at all quality levels. Today, we are able to simultaneously obtain and use herbs from different countries and different harvests, an advantage ages past did not enjoy. However, because of the natural variety of soils, seeds, and weather, every crop of botanicals is unique. Every batch of a truly natural herbal formula is slightly different, and offers its own unique benefits and experience. There must be a firm commitment to excellence from growers and suppliers everywhere, because herbal combinations are products for problems. For therapeutic success, herbs must be BIO-ACTIVE and BIO-AVAILABLE. If you decide to make your own herbal preparations, buy the finest quality herbs you can find. There is a world of disparity between fairly good herbs and the best. Superior stock must go into a medicinal formula so that the herbal product can do its job correctly. Superior plants cost far more than standard stock, but their worth in healing activity is a true value for the health care customer. Third party certifications like NSF, Non-GMO Project, Certified Organic and stringent in house quality control testing on herbs can help provide assurance that the herbs you are purchasing have been held to rigorous industry standards for quality and efficacy. Herbal suppliers will give you plenty of good information on their commitment to quality before you buy. Which type of herbal preparation should you choose? Whichever herbal preparation form you choose, it is generally better to take greater amounts at the beginning of your program, to build a good internal healing base, and to stimulate your body's vital balancing force more quickly. As the therapeutic agents establish and build, and you begin to notice good response, reduce your dose gradually, finally reducing to long range preventive amounts. Herbs can be applied to almost any necessity of life. It's simply a matter of knowing their properties, how they work together and how to use them correctly. Herbs are foods, and your body knows how to use them. Give them time. Give yourself a good diet, some rest and relaxation for the best results. ...Herbal teas are the most basic of all healing mediums - easily absorbed by the body as hot liquid. They are the least concentrated of all herbal forms, but many herbs are optimally effective when steeped in hot water. The hot brewing water releases herbal potency and provides a flushing action that is ideal for removing toxic, loosened wastes. Although teas have milder, more subtle effects than capsules or extracts, they are sometimes the only way for a weakened system to accept therapeutic support, and often work synergistically with stronger medicinal forms to boost their value. Note 1: Volatile essential oils are lost during cutting of herbs for tea bags. For best results, buy cut herbs or crumble leaves and flowers, and break roots and barks into pieces before steeping for best results. Note 2: Medicinal teas may have bitter tasting properties. Where taste is unpleasant, I add mint, lemon peel, spices, or stevia (sweet herb) to improve taste without harming therapeutic qualities. Tips on taking herbal teas: 1: Use 1 packed small teaball to 3 cups of water for medicinal-strength tea. Use distilled water or pure spring water for increased herbal strength and effectiveness. 2: Bring water to a boil, remove from heat, add herbs and steep covered off heat; 10 to 15 minutes for a leaf-flower tea; 15 to 25 minutes for a root-bark tea. Keep lid down during steeping so volatile oils don't escape. 3: Use a teapot of glass, ceramic or earthenware, not aluminum. Aluminum can negate the effect of the herbs as the metal dissolves into the hot liquid and gets into the body. 4: Drink medicinal teas in small sips throughout the day rather than all at once. One-half to 1 cup, taken 3 or 4 times over a day allows absorption of the tea, without passing before it has a chance to work. ...An infusion is a tea made from fresh, dried or powdered herbs. Use directions above, or pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 tablespoon of fresh herb, 1 teaspoon of dried herb, or 4 opened capsules of powdered herbs. Cover and let steep 10 to 15 minutes. Never boil. A cold infusion can be made by simply allowing the herbs, especially powders, to stand in cool water for an hour or more. ...A decoction is a tea made from roots and barks. Use directions above, or put 2 tablespoons of cut herb pieces into 1 cup cold water. Bring to a light boil, cover, and simmer gently for 20 to 30 minutes. Strain. For best results, repeat the same process with the same herbs. Strain again and mix both batches. ...Sun tea is an infusion where herbs are put in a covered jar and allowed to stand in the sun. ...Herbal broths, rich in minerals and enzymes, are made by grinding dry ingredients in a blender. Simply mix 2 TBS. of dry mix to 2 cups hot water. Let flavors bloom for 5 minutes. Add 1 tsp. Bragg's liquid aminos to each broth for a flavor-nutrient boost if desired. Sip over a half-hour period for best assimilation. ...Herbal capsules are generally four times stronger than teas, more concentrated, yet bypass any herbal bitterness and are convenient to take. Capsules make both oil and water soluble herbs available through stomach acid and enzyme alteration. Freeze-dried powdered herbs, with all the moisture removed, are also available in capsules, and are four times more concentrated than regular ground herbs. As noted with herbal teas above, grinding herbs into powders creates facets on the whole herb structure causing potential loss of volatile oils. Effective potency for powdered herbs is six months to 2 years. ...Herbal extracts are 4 to 8 times stronger than capsules. They are effective used as a spray where all the mouth receptors can be brought into play, or as drops held under the tongue, bypassing the digestive system's acid-alkaline breakdown. Their strength and ready availability make extracts reliable emergency measures. Small doses may be used repeatedly over a period of time to help build a strong base for restoring body balance. Alcohol based herbal extractions can last for up to 5 years if stored correctly. ....Herbal gels allow absorption of herbs through the skin. We use aloe vera as a conduit in our gels to deliver the extracted herbs quickly to the target area. Use gels topically as needed for problems like cut, scrapes, scars and more.Healthy Healing Blog|
|Healthy Healing Blog Women's Weight Loss Over 40: Herbal Solutions to Fight Middle-Aged SpreadNearly everyone faces a disconcerting body thickening and slow rise in weight in their 40s, even people who have always been slim, who eat a healthy diet, and who exercise regularly. In fact, body fat typically doubles between the ages of 20 and 50. Sometimes diet and exercise really isn't enough! What's happening to our bodies?For women, a major calorie-burning process grinds to a halt after menopause. The metabolic rise in the last two weeks of the menstrual cycle accounts for 15,000-20,000 calories per year. Those calories really start to add up when the menstrual cycle stops. Further, women tend to develop more abdominal fat as estrogen levels are reduced. For men, lower testosterone levels caused by andropause leads to a decrease in muscle mass and an increase in fat storage. Research shows that with age, men burn less fat during exercise, so older men actually need to work out longer to lose weight!Healthy lifestyle changes are critical to achieve long-term weight loss goals, but it often takes more at mid life. Whole herbs are an ideal choice for weight loss after 40. They are not habit forming like stimulant anti-obesity drugs, and they support natural weight loss processes, like thermogenesis.Thermogenesis' Role in Weight Loss Over 40Thermogenesis is all about fat burning. About 75% of the calories you eat work to keep you alive and support your resting metabolic rate. The balance of calories are stored as white fat, or burned up by brown adipose tissue (brown fat), your body's premier fat burning factory. The more active your brown fat is, the more efficient your thermogenesis is, and the easier it is to maintain an optimum weight. Differences in brown fat activity explain why some people can overeat and stay slim, while others put on the pounds even though their diet and exercise plan is sound.Starting in our early 40s, a genetic timer begins to slow down the thermogenic mechanism. Instead of calories being burned off, more of them get stored as white fat, leading to weight gain, especially around the middle. In addition, some people are simply not born with enough brown fat. These people gain more weight at middle age because the little brown fat they do have is reduced even further. Nature in her wisdom provides a solution. You can reactivate your brown fat activity after 40, and using thermogenic herbs is a key.Fat Burning Herbs: The Good & Bad NewsMost of us have heard of the herb, ephedra as a thermogenic aid to stimulate weight loss. Unfortunately, misuse and abuse of ephedra in highly concentrated, chemical ephedrine products has led to cardiovascular side effects and health risks for consumers. Today, ephedra is banned from use in dietary supplements in the U.S. But, ephedra is not the only herb that stimulates brown fat activity. Green tea, mustard seed, cinnamon and ginger are a few other thermogenic herbs that you can use without the side effects or health risks.As a traditional herbalist, I only formulate with whole herbs, because they are much less likely to produce side effects or interactions than standardized herbs or highly concentrated herbs. Further, whole herbs in combination offer the advantage of addressing multiple body systems and needs. For "after 40" weight loss concerns, I combine thermogenic whole herbs with herbs that control appetite and sugar cravings, and herbs that relieve bloating. Whole herbs support the whole person.Losing weight at mid life does present new challenges, but once the body adjusts to its new hormone levels, weight gain stabilizes, and becomes more manageable. Whole herbs can help you get over an "after 40" weight loss plateau, and have the added benefits of improving body chemistry and reestablishing better metabolic rates.To Life-long health,Linda PageHealthy Healing Blog|
|Healthy Healing Blog Do You Need A Gallstone Cleanse?In the United States, high bile cholesterol levels are the main cause of gallstones (bile cholesterol levels do not necessarily correlate with blood cholesterol levels). Gallstones form when bile liquid (made in the liver, then stored in the gallbladder to help the body digest fats) hardens into bits of stone-like material. A stone may grow for 6 to 8 years before symptoms occur. Since continued formation of gallstones is dependent on either an increased accumulation of cholesterol or reduced levels of bile acids or lecithin, it's easy to see that anywhere along the way, diet improvement will deter, even arrest, stone development.Important note: Although I have personally seen several gallstone sufferers use the 9 day program. I recommend it only under the supervision of a qualified health professional. The liver and gallbladder are interconnecting, interworking organs. Problems with either affect both. Before undertaking a Gallstone Flush to pass gallstones, have an ultrasound test to determine the size of the stones. If they are too large to pass through the urethral ducts, other methods must be used.The Nine-Day Gallstone Flush PlanNote: If olive oil is hard for you to take straight, sip it through a straw.3 Day Olive Oil And Juice FlushOn rising: take 2 tbsp. olive oil and juice of 1 lemon in water. Sip through a straw if desired.Breakfast: have a glass of organic apple juice.Mid-morning: have 2 cups of chamomile or cascara tea.Lunch: take another glass of lemon juice and olive oil in water; and a glass of fresh apple juice.Mid-afternoon: have 2 cups of chamomile or cascara tea.Dinner: have a glass of carrot/beet/cucumber juice; or a potassium juice or broth.Before bed: take another cup of chamomile tea.Follow With A 5 Day Alkalizing DietOn rising: take 2 tbsp. cider vinegar in water with 1 tsp. honey; or a glass of grapefruit juice.Breakfast: have a glass of carrot/beet/cucumber juice, or a potassium broth or juice.Mid-morning: have 2 cups of chamomile tea, and a glass of organic apple juice.Lunch: a vegetable drink with Pure Planet Chlorella, or Crystal Star Energy Green drink, a green salad with lemon-olive oil dressing and a cup of dandelion tea. Mid-afternoon: have 2 cups of chamomile tea, and another glass of apple juice.Dinner: have a small green salad with lemon-oil dressing, add daikon radish shreds as a gentle diuretic flusher; and another glass of apple juice.Before bed: 1 cup chamomile or dandelion tea.End With A 1 Day Olive Oil FlushAt 7 p.m. on the evening of the 5th day of the alkalizing diet, mix 1 pint olive oil and 10 juiced lemons; take ¼ cup every 15 minutes until used. Lie on right side for best assimilation.Prevent Gallstones From FormingIncrease your fresh fruit and vegetable intake for more fiber. It keeps bad cholesterol deposits from forming and keeps food moving naturally through your system instead of developing deposits which turn into stones. Vegetable proteins from foods like soy, oat bran and sea veggies help prevent gallstone formation. Reduce your animal protein intake, especially dairy foods (casein in dairy foods increases gallstone formation). Avoid fried foods, fast foods and sugary foods altogether if you are at risk for gallstones.Healthy Healing Blog|
|Healthy Healing Blog Do you have Gallbladder problems?Do You Have Gallbladder Problems? You may not think it's serious, that it's just heartburn or indigestion, but if it's chronic, it could be serious.•Do you have intense pain in the upper right abdomen during an attack, sometimes accompanied by fever and nausea? (it may be gallstones)•Do you have periods of nausea, vomiting, fever and intense abdominal pain that radiates to the upper back? (it may be cholecystitis, gallbladder inflammation)•Do you have recurring abdominal pain, bloating and gas after you eat a heavy meal? along with headaches, sluggishness or nervousness? (it may be gallstones or Crohn's disease)Do You Have Gallstones?In the United States, high bile cholesterol levels are the main cause of gallstones, with most stones (80%) composed of cholesterol and varying amounts of bile salts, bile pigments and inorganic calcium salts. When bile in the gallbladder becomes supersaturated with cholesterol, it combines with other sediment matter present and begins to form a stone. Dietary factors like high blood sugar, high calorie and saturated fat intake that lead to obesity are also involved. A stone may grow for 6 to 8 years before symptoms occur. Continued formation of gallstones is dependent on either increased accumulation of cholesterol or reduced levels of bile acids or lecithin. It's easy to see that diet improvement will deter, even arrest, gallstones.Gallstones Can Be SeriousNinety-five percent of people suffering from cholecystitis have gallstones. If these symptoms sound like you, pay close attention and seek medical help immediately. An ultrasound test provides a definitive diagnosis.Healthy Healing Blog|
|Healthy Healing Blog Can You Prevent Kidney Stones?Kidney stones have long afflicted mankind. Evidence of kidney stones has recently been found in a 7,000 year-old Egyptian mummy! Still, in every decade since World War II, the U.S. has seen a steady rise in kidney stone cases. Today 10% of American men and 5% of American women have a kidney stone by the time they're seventy. Kidney stones are a diet-related illness. They are directly linked to dehydration, low dietary fiber, high fats from large amounts of animal protein, sugary foods, and too much alcohol and salt. Notable amounts of unabsorbed calcium (usually from dairy sources or antacids), also play a part.The above symptoms parallel the rise of the Standard American Diet, full of fat, fried foods, rich dairy products and sugar. Excessive use of antacids and adrenal exhaustion also contribute to kidney stones. Kidney stones form when minerals that normally float free in kidney fluids combine into crystals. When inorganic mineral waste overloads and the body has too little fluid, kidney stones form. There are three types of kidney stones: those composed of calcium salts, the most common type (75-85%), struvite, or non-calcium-containing crystals (10-15%), and uric acid crystals, at about 5-8% occurrence. It takes from 5 to 15 hours of vigorous, urgent treatment to dissolve and pass even small stones.Kidney Stone Prevention TipsA vegetarian diet, low in proteins and starches, that emphasizes fresh fruits, vegetables and cultured foods to alkalize the system, is the key to avoiding kidney stone formation. This type of diet is high in fiber to reduce urinary calcium waste. Eliminate caffeine foods, salty, sugary and fried foods and soft drinks that inhibit kidney filtering. Avoid clogging, mucous-forming foods like dairy foods, heavy grains, starches and fats, to relieve irritation and inhibit sediment formation. Healthy Healing Blog|
|Healthy Healing Blog All about Gallbladder DiseaseGallstones, CholecystitisThe gallbladder helps digest fats by producing bile (a compound of cholesterol, bile pigments and salts). But if you eat a lot of fatty and fried foods, gallbladder bile fluids often become saturated with cholesterol, the cholesterol precipitates into solid crystals, then accumulates into stones. The stones enlarge, the gallbladder becomes inflamed, and severe pain that feels like a heart attack ensues. It can be life threatening if left untreated. Stones may also block the bile passage, causing pain and digestive harm. About 20 million Americans have gallstones, and gallbladder cholecystitis (acute gallbladder inflammation); three fourths of them are women.High risk factors for gallbladder disease include a poor diet with high cholesterol and low bile acids, chronic indigestion and gas from too much dairy and refined sugars, obesity, and Crohn's disease. Research shows that even birth control pills or HRT, hormone replacement drugs, which change estrogen balance, increase cholesterol production by the liver. Yo-yo dieting increases risk of gallstones. (I personally knew a 64-year-old woman who died from her gallstones that became severe through twenty-five years of yo-yo dieting.)Gallstones are far easier to prevent than to reverse. Research shows eating just one large orange a day may reduce gallstone risk. The sharp rise of three conditions in America affect our ability to digest cleanly... 1) food allergies - because they affect the ability to digest (eliminate the offending food to stop attacks), 2) parasite infections - because they can lead to calcium composition stones, 3) lack of regular exercise which stagnates digestive activity.

|Healthy Healing Blog The Demodex Connection to Rosacea OutbreaksResearch suggests human demodex, a microscopic mite, is potential contributor to rosacea. Numerous studies have found it appears in higher numbers on the skin of people with rosacea, particularly on rosacea bumps and pimples (papulopustular rosacea).For some time, it has not been clear whether the mites actually cause the rosacea or whether a person with rosacea's immune system reacts sensitively to them. However, a new study suggests altered immune response may be involved. A new study from the National University of Ireland-Maynooth found bacteria present on the mite (Bacillus oleronius) caused an immune response in rosacea patients.Typically, treatment to reduce the mites/bacteria (Metronidazole) reduces skin inflammation and relieves rosacea. In the herb world, we use herbs like cat's claw, pau d'arco, and goldenseal infused in a topical aloe vera gel (Immune Support gel) to keep skin balanced, cool and calm. Healthy Healing Blog|
