Get to Know Some Friendly Fungi - Part II

When we experience a cold or the flu, our immune system is sending out an SOS. Mushroom soup is a great choice for two reasons; one, because it is a hot liquid, which warms the throat and retards viral replication, and two, because it contains special compounds that bolster the immune system. The active substances derived from mushrooms stimulate cell regeneration and activate the defense cells. This results in the production of several regulatory proteins being released.

The Agaricus mushroom, has several well known varieties including meadow mushroom (agaricus campestris). During the past 10 years, the medicinal mushroom known as agaricus blazei has been studied and developed as a foodstuff in Asia. Agaricus bisporus is the most common edible mushroom in Western countries.

You may have heard of Kombucha, a very popular remedy, but it is not a mushroom at all. It is the common name for a fermentation of sweetened black tea using lactobacilli and yeast cultures. The species of yeast found in the tea can vary, and it is the yeast culture, which looks a bit like a large pancake, which is sometimes mistaken for a mushroom. Kombucha is regarded to properties that protect against cancer by supporting the liver in detoxifying the body.

Maitake and Reishi are two mushrooms that the Chinese and Japanese have called upon for thousands of years. The reishi mushroom treats liver disorders, hypertension and arthritis, the Maitake mushroom for its positive impact on the immune system. It has been found to inhibit the growth of tumors and now in the United States there are clinical studies underway of patients with breast and colorectal cancers.

Re-engerize Yourself with Reiki

As an alternative therapy, Reiki is unique in its application. It is totally non-invasive, yet effective. If you adhere to the principle that all physical manifestations begin in the spiritual dimension, it is easy to see how Reiki impacts your health.

Japan has long been regarded for their respect for the human spirit and reverent care of the body. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.

The word Reiki comes from two Japanese terms - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy" - Reiki is in essence is, "spiritually guided life force energy."

The hands are used to connect to the unseen life force energy between the giver and receiver, creating a channel that removes tension and stress, as well as emotional blockages. The energy fields of both people communicate, and in doing so, relief from tension is felt.

By respecting the spirit, mind and body of the person and treating it as a whole, the recipient experiences a feeling of peace, security and wellbeing. When done properly, a treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.

Just as with any therapy or health care treatment, it is important to seek out a certified professional. Reiki is a bona fide science that requires skill and training in order to work with a persons life force. If you are interested in a reiki treatment, there are many organizations that can help you find a professional Reiki Master.

Having Trouble Sleeping? Reflexology to the Rescue!

After a long day of activity, whether you are working at home, in an office, going to school or taking care of children, a good rest is what we all look forward to. But it seems to be that these are exactly the times when sleep evades us.

What to do? Try using a do-it-yourself reflexology foot massage. It makes sense, your feet work the hardest supporting your entire body throughout the day, plus all the nerves in your body end here.

What is reflexology? The art of reflexology has its roots in the ancient cultures of Egypt, India and China. The West received word of this therapy in 1913 from Dr. William Fitzgerald, who noted that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body. Eunice Ingham developed this zone theory further in the 1930's and reflexology as we know it today became real. She found that tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which works on the feet to help heal the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.

First, take a nice shower or bath, get out your favorite lotion and coat your foot with just enough to lubricate your foot.

Now beginning with the ball of your right foot, take both hands and place the thumbs in the middle, beneath your third toe. Use enough pressure that is comfortable for you and make slow, circular movements.

Next, move to the arch of your foot. Make sure you massage the complete area of the arch from the ball of your foot to the heel.

Now, move to the heel of your foot, continue using circular movements, by now your body should begin to relax. Use both hands and hold your foot between them, flex your toes, first forward and then backward, then massage each toe from the top to the bottom where it meets the ball of your foot.

Finally, move to the top of your foot. Take your thumbs and beginning at your ankle, use the same circular movements down to your toes, around the sides of your foot and the ankle joint.

Repeat the process on your left foot, and once you are finished you should be more relaxed and ready for a wonderful dream.

Change is the constant driving force to life and many people are seeking change in their health regiment, no longer satisfied with the traditional view that treats every person from the same perspective.

Add Spirulina to Your Diet and Enjoy Better Health

Just like many people, I am concerned about living in an urban environment; how do I deal with daily exposure to air borne toxins from auto and manufacturing emissions, noise pollution and stress?

After doing some research, I found Spirulina, commonly known as blue-green algae. It is a photosynthetic life form, the first food that nature produced and was responsible for producing oxygen which helped other life forms evolve. I am pleased to report that I have witnessed a definite improvement in my health since I began including it in my daily diet.

The improvement is due to the fact that Spirulina is rich in protein and compounds that improve the immune system. It assists the body to manage stress with vitamin B-12, which is very important for the nervous system to function well. And removing toxins from the body is given a boost by its chlorophyll, beta carotene, iron and GLA (gamma lineolic acid-as found in human breast milk) content, that helps the body to rebuild healthy, strong muscle tissue.

There are many other benefits and a lot of scientific research that verifies it, so if you want to keep yourself healthy and happy, take a look at Spirulina.

Grow Your Own for the Freshest Food Possible!

We probably need a lot of enzymes and plant sugars (not refined!) for optimum health.

Enzymes get killed when food is cooked, and the essential sugars in plants are only produced when the fruit ripens naturally on the plant. They don't survive very long in the form that our body needs most.

Have you ever picked a ripe fruit from a tree and tasted that burst of flavour? That's from some of the essential sugars that your body needs to coat every cell so that the cells can comunicate with one another. If you have allergies or auto-immune disease you likely are missing some essential sugars in your diet.

The solution? Have something raw and freshly picked with every meal. Grow herbs in pots and have a little vegetable plot if you can to grow salad vegetables and fruits to eat raw.

You'll feel so much better!

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is about using natural essential oils from flowers and trees and other plants to achieve balance, harmonize oneself and promote the health of your body, spirit and mind.

It needn't be complicated. A few drops of essential oil in a warm place close to you will work wonders on your state of mind.

If you like you can buy an aromatherapy diffuser. Most of them would be something that was pleasing to the eye and had a place to put a small candle with a small bowl on top to put some water and a few drops of oil in.

Then just light up the candle and you are in business!

Try lots of different essential oils and mixes of them. But use the real thing! Artificial fragrance oils just aren't going to have the same effect. And with essential oils a little goes a long way.

Lots of places sell essential oils. I get mine from one of my local health food stores. But I know of stores just dedicated to aromatherapy. If there isn't a source for them close to you, well, everything is available on the internet.

Acupuncture - An ancient and effevtive treatment

The acupuncturist is able to influence health and sickness by stimulating certain areas along these "meridians". Traditionally these areas or "acupoints" were stimulated by fine, slender needles. Today, many additional forms of stimulation are incorporated, including herbs, electricity, magnets and lasers. Still, the aim remains the same - adjust the "vital energy" so the proper amount reaches the proper place at the proper time. This helps your body heal itself.

Aloe vera's skin-soothing and cell-protecting properties

For countless Americans, myself included, aloe vera was the first encounter with a medicinal herb. As teenagers in coastal Maine, my friends and I would head for the beach on a warm spring day to start renewing our suntans, and after frying our pallid winter skin, we'd rub aloe gel on each others' blistered backs.

Alternative Health: An Aide to Traditional Medicine

The scope of alternative healing or natural healing is very broad. Alternative healing in general is recently becoming popular. This includes herbal therapy, acupuncture, the use of gems, crystals, and magnets to promote healing, and other similar ideas. Several other methods are still being developed. I, personally, am a fan of alternative healing. This concept relays the magical form of healing. Let me make it clear though, that I do not recommend users to simply switch to alternative healing. As for my experience, I systematically blend the traditional medical treatment with the specific alternative healing method I prefer. The results are good as it dramatically speeds up my recovery.

 

The Powers of Meditative Healing

Meditation refers to the state of the body is relaxed and the mind is maintained in complete calmness and focus. Healing through meditation is possible. You can try it and it can relieve your senses, your body, and even your soul. Although the full meditation stage is not easy to achieve, practicing it daily can improve health and in time noticeable changes happens on your physical and mental well being. Meditiation can be self-taught, it's just a matter of stong determination and will. Generally, it can relieve stress because it aims to relax your body and mind. You can be healed of acute and chronic pain even. Mentally, your focus and state of mind will improve. At times, it is believed that pain is just a state of mind. With proper meditation, healing can happen. Just will it to be.
