Garlic – The Most Amazing Herb On The Planet

If I were allowed only one herbal remedy to treat medical conditions, it would be raw, organic garlic.Garlic is nature’s antibiotic and more. Garlic kills (removes, eliminates, reduces) bacteria, colds, flus, viruses, parasites, inflammation, warts, fungi, and plagues.

The Benefits of Garlic

•Increases insulin production
•Kills athletes foot (apply externally and take internally)
•Dramatically lowers cholesterol
•Helps with weight control and weight loss
•Reduces and regulates blood sugar
•Reduces high blood pressure
•Kills cancer cells (has been proven in numerous lab studies)160px x 600px

•Treats acne (apply externally and take internally)

•Soothes psoriasis (apply externally)
•Kills cold sores (apply externally)
•Removes heavy metals from the body
•Strengthens the immune system
•Kills strep throat
•Kills tooth infections

Two components of garlic, a sulfur-based compound called alliin, and the enzyme alliinase, are kept separate within garlic. But when the cells are ruptured these elements are released, allowing them to come in contact and form a powerful new compound called alliicin. This compound is responsible for many of the health benefits garlic is known for, along with it’s pungent smell and bite. The more the garlic is chopped (minced, pressed, etc.), the more allicin is produced. After cutting the garlic, let it sit for a couple of minutes to allow the chemical process to take place.

Many studies prove that ginger can selectively kill breast cancer cells!

Every year during the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month occurs. It is an annual campaign working to spread awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research to find the cause, prevention, treatment, and cure. People everywhere wear pink ribbons to show support for those affected.In fact, about 1 in 8 United States women, which amounts up to just over 12%, will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

A man’s risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. A large amount of money is needed to put into the research to discover the cure and understandably it appears that a low-cost, safe, and effective treatment is available. Or is it? Could ginger be the simple cure that the FDA-approved treatments have yet to accomplish?

4 Best Home Exercises for those Flabby Arms

Staying fit and active during this age of computers and machines is extremely important. Especially since the generation is all about the easy way out. With washing machines taking over hand washing, dishwashers replacing human hands and vacuum cleaners aiding manual work, one would wonder if we became lazier by the day. Will this laziness not lead to weight and health issues? Our body will end up having flab all over giving us a feeling of sagging bulging loose flesh… Are you repulsed by this flab over flow on your body?
Of course, yes!!! And witness to this is the increased number of fitness centres that help us keep fit and trim. But there is one part of our anatomy that is so stubborn that even the best of the fitness centers cannot help reduce it drastically! And those are our arms. It is very difficult to get rid of accumulated fat on our arms, owing to the lack of flexible space for our arms to workout. But we all know nothing is ever impossible. So here come four of the best exercises to get rid of that unsightly flab. This will also make way for perfect toned arms!!!. And what better way than to do it at home without any need of sophisticated gym equipment.
1. The Windmill

Raise your arms in front of you at shoulder level, parallel to the ground. Now raise your arms upwards and rotate it backwards and down and front again in a 360 degree motion, like the blades of a windmill. Repeat this motion for twenty times forward and twenty times backwards.Benefits: By the rotation, the upper arms and the shoulders get a thorough workout building strength in the upper arms, shoulders and neck muscles. The biceps and triceps get a toning session here.

2. The Wave Goodbye

Raise your arms at shoulder level at your sides. Start waving your palms as if you are waving goodbye to someone. Keep your arms still, only move your palms. Speed up the process such that you wave about 100 times in a minute. Do three sets of 100 waves each.

Benefits: The waving motion, keeping the arms still, creates a twisting motion in your arms, right from the wrists to the shoulders. This way, you are stretching all your arm muscles, thus toning your entire arm at once.

3. The Prayer Pose

Join your hands in a praying pose above your head. Bring your joined palms down to the front of your chest. Raise your joined hands again. Repeat this up down motion for at least 30 repetitions.

Benefits: When you join your hands together, your triceps are engaged. When you move your hands up and down, your biceps are engaged. This way, you are working out your triceps and biceps together therefore toning your upper arms with each repetition.

4. Arm Stretches

Raise both your hands above your head. Catch your right wrist with your left hand and your left wrist with your right hand, thereby interlocking your hands. Now with your right hand, pull your left hand towards your right such that your left elbow falls behind your head.

Release the pull and take arms back to center without releasing the interlocking. Now with your left hand pull your right hand towards the left such that your right elbow falls behind your head. Again release the pull and take hands to center. Repeat this for at least two sets of 20 repetitions each.

Benefits: When you interlock your hands, your triceps are engaged. Pulling the hands to the opposite sides creates a further stretch in the triceps thereby toning them. This exercise for flabby arms is great for those who have loose hanging fat on their triceps.

These four exercises are all you need to tone up those great arms of yours, and get in shape for a perfect sleeveless dress.

The best part is all you need for these flabby arm exercises are your hands and nothing else. You can do these tiny workouts anytime and anywhere. Have a little spare time? Get to work on those arms.

10 Foods that Detoxify Your Body,Without Fasting

Take the sprouts, leave the broccoli head. Broccoli sprouts are super high in antioxidants that help detox enzymes in the digestive tract.

Citrus

Vitamin C is one of the best detox vitamins around, so it’s no surprise lemons, oranges and limes made our list. The enzymes help to clear the digestive tract and cleanse the liver. Try drinking a warm glass of lemon water daily.

Fruit

Since fruit already has such wonderfully-high liquid content, it works wonders for your system. Plus, fruits are easy to digest, high in antioxidants, nutrients, fiber and vitamin C. Fiber is especially important for cleansing your digestive system because it expands to sweep the intestines clean. You can gently cleanseyour system by eating plenty of bananas, pears, apples, strawberries, blackberries, grapefruit, oranges, dates, figs and plums. Pst… pick the juicier fruits.

Garlic

It may be stinky, but by just adding raw or cooked garlic to your food you’re helping to filter out residual toxins.

Green Food

Remember when your mom told you to eat something green every day? Do it. And make sure some are leafy greens like kale, spinach, arugula and even wheatgrass or blue green algae. The chlorophyll will boost your digestive tract to eliminate toxins.

Green Tea

This well-known healthy drink washes out toxins with its special antioxidants called catechins, which also increase liver function. Win-win.

Mung Beans

These tiny beans pack a big punch as they absorb residual toxins along the intestinal walls.

Omega-3 Oils

Avocado, olive oil and flax seed oil… sounds good to us! These items are high in Omega-3s which help lube up the intestinal walls and absorb the toxins.

Raw Veggies

Since onions, carrots, artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, garlic, beets, turmeric and oregano are all high in sulphur and glutathione, they help to rid your liver of harmful toxins.

Water

And lots and lots of it.

While you’re at it, boost your metabolism with these foods.

The unlikely new medicine… pickled cabbage: New research reveals it may help with allergies, coughs, colds and more

By Chloe Lambert

Sauerkraut, blue cheese and pickles hardly sound like the route to wellbeing. But fermented foods – left to age for anything from a few days to weeks before they’re eaten – are the new health craze.
It comes from the U.S. of course, where it’s become fashionable to ferment vegetables and drink kombucha – a fizzy, fermented tea drunk for centuries in China.

Now the science appears to back it up. Last week Cambridge University researchers reported that regular consumption of fermented low-fat dairy foods, such as yoghurt, fromage frais and cottage cheese, could reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 25 per cent over 11 years.
When certain foods are left to ferment, they are ‘pre-digested’ by good bacteria and yeast found naturally on the surface of the food. These microbes eat the food before you do, breaking down the sugars and starches and making the nutrients easier for the body to absorb.
