It is found that a mix of honey and cinnamon CURES most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey isin fact very effective medicine for many kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a major plus.

Let me break it down for you……………………….

HEART DISEASES:

Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from a heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS:

Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people that were treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain — and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS:

Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder….who knew?

CHOLESTEROL:

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol-could be cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS:

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough-type colds AND clear the sinuses too! Another small  perk – it’s delicious!!

UPSET STOMACH:

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also is said to clear stomach ulcers from its root.

GAS:

According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM:

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION:

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA:

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ‘Ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY:

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Lifespans will actually increase and even it make possible that someone who may be 100 years old will start performing the chores of  someone half their age.

RASPY OR SORE THROAT:

When one’s throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.

PIMPLES:

Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste – Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm water. When done daily for two weeks, it removes all pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS:

Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

WEIGHT LOSS:

Once daily in the morning ,one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and then once again at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER:

Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder three times a day for one month.

FATIGUE:

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

BAD BREATH:

People in South America gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

Lose Weight & Boost Your Energy Level With The Fat-Fighting 4 Super Nutrients

fat-fighting-4-super-nutrientsYou’ve heard of mind-over-matter, haven’t you? Well then, let’s apply that concept to your food intake. Changing your thought process about food, healthy eating and losing weight could make a very positive difference in your lifestyle. Try looking at it this way – The latest news about the  amazing ways that eating — NOT dieting — can improve your health, help you lose weight and give you all-day energy just keeps getting better and better all the time. As a matter of fact, recent research studies show that certain nutrients found in several types of foods are powerful factors when it comes to balancing blood sugar and promoting weight loss. Take a close look here at the four “super nutrients” that can have a powerful effect on your weight, your energy level and your long-term health.

Introducing The Fabulous 4 Fat-Fighting Super Nutrients

1) – CALCIUM

Scientists aren’t sure how calcium burns body fat — some believe it reduces the fat-producing effects of a steroid hormone called “calcitriol”. What we do know is that it works — Researchers at the University of Tennessee found that obese people who went on a low-calorie diet that contained three daily servings of calcium rich dairy lost 70% more weight and 64% more body fat than those who ate just one serving of dairy a day.

  • What To Eat…..

Fat-free milk and low-fat dairy, spinach, kale, broccoli, and white beans

2) – VITAMIN D

A landmark study from Tufts–New England Medical Center showed that low levels of vitamin D raise a person’s risk of type 2 diabetes by as much as 46%. Researchers believe vitamin D quells cellular inflammation that contributes to diabetes. Plus, your body needs D to absorb calcium—and together, they can help fight diabetes — According to the Nurses’ Health Study, an ongoing investigation of more than 83,000 women, those who consumed more than 1,200 mg of calcium and more than 800 IU of vitamin D a day were 33% less likely to have developed diabetes than those taking in less of both nutrients.

  • What To Eat…..

Salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, fortified whole grain cereal, fortified fat-free milk, and Swiss cheese

3) – OMEGA-3s

New science published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that women who ate a balanced diet including omega-3s lost 1 1⁄2 more pounds of torso fat than women on the same exact diet but minus the omega-3s. These healthy fats slow the rate of digestion, which makes you feel fuller longer, so you eat fewer calories throughout the day.

  • What To Eat…..

Tofu, enriched eggs, shrimp, salmon, tuna, walnuts, flax, and flaxseed oil

4) – FIBER

Foods high in fiber are nutrient-rich, filling, and low in calories — a combination that makes them “weight loss wonders”. According to a study done at the University of Minnesota, people who stuck to higher-fiber diets lost 2 to 3 pounds more per month than those who followed lower-fiber diets. Fiber triggers hormones that control appetite, which also helps with weight loss. Plus, both soluble and insoluble fiber help control blood sugar — The soluble type dissolves in water and forms a thick gel during digestion, which can interfere with and slow down carbohydrate and glucose absorption in the intestines.  Insoluble fiber doesn’t dissolve in water. It stays solid and moves quickly through the digestive tract, so intestines have less time to absorb carbohydrates, and blood sugar levels stay even.

  • What To Eat…..

Whole grain breads and cereals, brown rice, barley, oatmeal and oat bran, apples, pears, citrus fruits, carrots, beans, and artichokes

Boost Energy & Fight Fatigue With Exercise

Have you been feeling tired and “run down” lately?

Believe it or not, a simple walk may be better than a nap for boosting energy and fighting fatigue.

Clip Art Graphic of a Fire Cartoon CharacterRecent studies suggests that regular exercise can actually increase energy levels, even among people suffering from chronic medical conditions associated with fatigue, such as cancer and heart disease. Contrary to popular belief, researchers say expending energy by engaging in regular exercise may pay off with increased levels of energy in the long run.

“A lot of times when people are fatigued, the last thing they want to do is exercise,” says researcher Patrick O’Connor, PhD, in a news release. “But if you’re physically inactive and fatigued, being just a bit more active will help,” says O’Connor, who is the co-director of the exercise psychology laboratory at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga.

“We live in a society where people are always looking for the next sports drink, energy bar, or cup of coffee that will give them the extra edge to get through the day,” says researcher Tim Puetz, PhD, also with the University of Georgia. “But it may be that lacing up your tennis shoes and getting out and doing some physical activity every morning can provide that spark of energy that people are looking for.”

Exercise Boosts Energy

Over the years, many studies have shown that sedentary people who start a regular exercise walking-character2program experience an increase in energy levels, although researchers say few studies have quantified those effects.

In this current study, which has been published in Psychological Bulletin, the researchers analyzed 70 studies on exercise and fatigue involving more than 6,800 people.

“More than 90% of the studies showed the same thing… That sedentary people who completed a regular exercise program reported improved fatigue compared to groups that did not exercise,” O’Connor comments. “It’s a very consistent effect.”

The results show that regular exercise increases energy and reduces fatigue.

It was shown that the average effect was greater than the improvement from using stimulant medications, which included the ones being used for ‘attention deficit hyperactivity disorder’ (ADHD) as well as narcolepsy.

Researchers claim that nearly every group that was studied — from healthy adults — to cancer patients — and even those with such chronic conditions as diabetes and heart disease — actually benefited from exercise.

Need A Quick Energy Boost – The Natural Way?

Need a quick energy boost — the natural way?

exerciseTry a few of these simple stretches during your “empty” moments, such as waiting for the printer or microwave. Eventually you will see your strength and flexibility improve.

Easy exercises can prevent problems and allow your body to do the work you ask it to do. You will even feel a boost of energy! You can do these exercises at your desk or just about anywhere throughout your day. The more often you do them, the better you will feel. You can even time your exercises to something you do frequently, like using the printer. While waiting, you can do a few exercises and make use of empty time. This will also help establish a good regular exercise habit!

Stretching brings nutrients to your muscles and relieves tension. It increases the feeling of well-being and improves flexibility. When possible, take breaks away from the computer and stretch whatever area feels tight. Stretch slowly without bouncing, and gradually increase the stretch to your tolerance. You should not stretch into pain.
Strengthening keeps muscles strong and helps to prevent any future problems. After exercising, you should pay close attention to how your body feels, and ask your physiotherapist to explain anything you don’t understand. Awareness of your body’s pain signals can help prevent injury as well as help recover from it.

The following is a suggested list of helpful exercises targeting several areas of the body.

Modify each exercise to your comfort level and discontinue any exercise that makes you feel worse. These exercises are most effective when done multiple times throughout the day. They make excellent stretch breaks at work.

Neck

  • Neck rotation: Sit or stand up straight. Turn your head from side to side without moving your shoulders or upper back. Hold 3 to 5 seconds — repeat 3 to 5 times each side.
  • Shoulder rolls: Move your shoulders up and backward in a circle — Repeat 5 to 10 times.
  • Chin tucks: Sit up tall and look straight ahead. Slowly tuck your chin in towards you (like making a double chin).  Hold 5 to 10 seconds — then relax your chin.

Upper Back

  • Shoulder blade pinch: With your arms by your side, bend your elbows to 90 degrees. Squeeze your shoulder blades together downward and backward. Do not let your low back arch or your head move forward. Hold 5 to 10 seconds — repeat 5 to 10 times.
  • Pectoral (chest) stretch: Place one forearm against a wall or door. The elbow should be level with the shoulder. Turn your body away from your arm. You should feel a stretch at the front of your shoulder and into the chest. Hold 20 to 30 seconds. — Repeat 1 to 2 times each side.

Lower Back & Legs

  • Abdominals: Sit with your buttocks against the back of a chair and tighten your abdominal muscles by pulling them toward your spine (flatten them and avoid pushing them outward). Keep your chest relaxed and continue to breathe normally while you hold the abdominals tight for 10 seconds — Repeat 5 to 10 times.
  • Hamstring stretch: Sit with your buttocks against the back of the chair, straighten your knee and feel the stretch in the back of your leg. To increase the stretch, lift your toes toward you. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds — Repeat 1 to 2 times each leg.
  • Low back extension: Stand up with your feet apart and place your palms on your lower back. Gently bend backwards, letting your back arch a comfortable amount. Pause 2 to 3 seconds — repeat 1 to 3 times.

Arms & Hands

  • Wrist extensor stretch: Hold your arm straight in front of you, palm down, and bend your wrist down. With your other hand over the knuckles, gently pull the hand down until you feel a stretch in the top of the wrist and forearm. To increase the stretch, make a relaxed fist. Hold 5 to 10 seconds — repeat 2 to 3 times each side.
  • Wrist flexor stretch: Hold your arm straight out in front of you, palm up, and bend your wrist back with fingers pointing down. With your other hand, gently pull the fingers back to increase the stretch. Hold 5 to 10 seconds — repeat 2 to 3 times.

Cardiovascular Exercise:after-exercise

Finally, it is important to find some time 2 to 3 times a week to do 20 to 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise. Make it fun! Getting the heart rate up improves circulation and gets important nutrients to all the different parts of our bodies. This promotes stress reduction, body weight regulation, and quality sleep. You will also be helping your body keep fit for life!
