Anxiety Solved – Nature’s Top Picks

Do you ever have constant worry niggling at the back of your mind?  Wondering if you’re ever going to get everything done?  Wondering how you’re going to meet that deadline at work, remember the numerous appointments, meetings and responsibilities of family life?  Are you constantly running the kids from ‘A’ to ‘B’ and then remembering what time to pick them up whilst also wondering what to cook for dinner, get to the shops to pick up the ingredients, take the dog to the vet, get some cleaning done and pay the bills – all in the space of 8 hours? And that’s only one small part of it. Retired people also suffer from anxiety but for a multitude of different reasons. Anxiety is not only a silent epidemic...

KAVA – Nature’s Muscle Relaxant & Anti-Anxiety Herb

In Captain Cook’s 1768 recount of his voyage in the Southern Seas, he wrote of his discovery of an intoxicating ceremonial drink prepared from Piper methysticum (better known as Kava): “the Kava first causes a numbing and then astringent effect in the mouth.  This is then followed by a relaxed, sociable state where the muscles are relaxed from the drink and fatigue and anxiety are lessened.  Eventually a deep, relaxing sleep arrives and the person that has had the kava awakes refreshed and without a hangover or any after-effects of the herb.” Given the proven anxiolytic activities of Kava root, it is most commonly used to calm anxiety, stress, restlessness and treat insomnia. It’s also used for the treatment of ADHD symptoms, epilepsy, psychosis, depression, migraines and...

Healthy Heart Herbs

  When heart abnormalities are confronted the first point of call is always the doctor and if required, a pharmaceutical medication is always prescribed.  Currently when a patient presents with a health problem such as abnormal heart rhythms, high blood pressure, angina (heart pain), tremors etc., they’re treated with pharmaceutical drugs known as Beta Blockers and Calcium Channel Blockers. Beta Blockers act by blocking adrenaline receptors (norepinephrine and epinephrine) from attaching to the beta receptors located on the nerves.  Their actions primarily reduce blood pressure by dilating blood vessels however, they also may constrict air passages by stimulating the muscles that surround the air passages to contract (which is considered an adverse side effect of the drug). Yet, there are some really wonderful herbs that can also be...

4 Herbs for Gut Health

Your gut doesn’t lie. It gives you that “gut feeling” when something isn’t quite right, “growls” when you’re hungry and gives you that “upset tummy” feeling when there’s something not quite right in your body. The gut is also sensitive to emotion.  If you’re upset or worried you often don’t feel like eating and vice versa.  If you are not feeling well in the tummy, then you can feel sad, upset, worried, anxious, irritated – a range of negative emotions. The gut-brain connection is now widely recognised and for good reason. Around 95% of the brains serotonin receptors are located in your bowel!  So it makes sense that if your gut is not feeling right, it will ultimately affect your mood.  This is another reason why it is so...

5 Herbs you Need to HEAL and RESTORE your LIVER!

[caption id="attachment_4265" align="alignright" width="300"]       St Mary's Thistle (Silybum marianum)[/caption] Food and drink, routinely ingested in the mouth and digested in the stomach would actually be incredibly poisonous for us if we just injected it directly into our blood stream.  That’s why we need a healthy functioning Liver - one of our body’s most important organs. A liver which is not functioning correctly results in digestive problems such as acid reflux, indigestion, poor protein or fat digestion, bloating, pain, sluggishness, low bile production and skin problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and skin rashes.  In addition, symptoms of an overburdened or sluggish liver will result in emotional problems such as anger, low tolerance, mood swings, depression, anxiety, inability to cope or a “wired but tired”...

Why you NEED Magnesium

You are always hearing it said that you need Magnesium, but do you really know why?  Most people just know it as the muscle relaxant that it is and that it can be beneficial after exercise. Magnesium deficiency is one of the leading nutrient deficiencies in the body.  It is now estimated that approximately 80% of people are deficient in magnesium. Typically, in today’s farming societies across the world, soils have been depleted of their natural stores of magnesium due to current farming practices and the use of pesticides and herbicides.   It is also due to digestive disorders that in turn create the malabsorption of magnesium and other minerals throughout the gut along with antibiotic use and prescription medication.  These factors all damage the digestive tract which is...
