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...

If you are FATIGUED, you HAVE to read this….

Now more than ever before the most common complaint that practitioners and doctors hear from their patients is that they are “tired” all the time. Data shows that up to 25% of patients suffer or have suffered from prolonged fatigue. Fatigue affects the nervous system which is a major part of the body’s control mechanism.  It has the function of coordinating the activities of the organs with one other. This coordination allows the body to coordinate as a whole to changes in its external and internal environment. As this control is effected by a dense network of fibres that impulses travel along (very much like telephone wires), the system is supported by complex relay stations in ascending order of sophistication throughout the central nervous system to the...

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...

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...
