Tame your Gout with Herbs that Support the Kidney and Urinary System

If you suffer from gout, you know that it can cause strong pain, joint stiffness, and swelling.  But there are herbs that will help your kidneys and urinary system to work better and reduce your symptoms. What is Gout? Gout is actually a form of arthritis.  But this form of arthritis is specifically caused by excess uric acid in the blood.  This excess acid forms crystals of uric acid in the joints causing pain. The most common area to experience gout is the big toe, though it can affect any joint in the body.  People with gout typically experience a sudden attack of pain that has no warning. Medical doctors will typically prescribe medications to reduce the inflammation and help prevent flare ups.  It’s also important to treat these...

Going on holidays is always fun if not a bit stressful to start off with.  Planning that relaxing or adventurous holiday takes a lot of care and consideration into what needs to be done to pull it off so that everyone has an enjoyable time.

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”...
