Treating Cystic Acne Naturally


If you want to avoid things like Cortisone, Accutane and Differin Cream, and use an all Natural approach to treating acne, read on.

Firstly, acne needs to be treated inside out. Nourishing the body with the proper amount fibre allows the body to rid itself of harmful toxins. You need to make sure your digestive system is working at it's best and enzymes also found in fibre, are a huge part of that. 
Try using cereal grasses like wheat grass and green supplements
- and be consistent. 


Why Wheatgrass? *taken from http://hippocratesinst.org/living-food/benefits-of-wheatgrass
Wheatgrass juice is nature’s finest medicine. It is our signature elixir here at Hippocrates. It is a powerful concentrated liquid nutrient. Two ounces of wheatgrass juice has the nutritional equivalent of five pounds of the best raw organic vegetables. For example, wheatgrass as twice the amount of Vitatin A as carrots and is higher in Vitamin C than oranges! It contains the full spectrum of B vitamins, as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potas-sium in a balanced ratio. Wheatgrass is a complete source of protein, supplying all of the essential amino acids, and more. It has about 20% of total calories coming from protein. This protein is in the form of poly peptides, simpler and shorter chains of amino acids that the body uses more efficiently in the blood stream and tissues.
In addition to flooding the body with therapeutic dosages of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients, wheatgrass is also a powerful detoxifier, especially of the liver and blood. It helps neutralize toxins and environmental pollutants in the body. This is because Wheatgrass contains beneficial enzymes that help protect us from carcinogens, including Superoxide Disumates (SOD), that lessens the effects of radiation and digest toxins in the body. It cleanses the body from head to toe of any heavy metals, pollutants and other toxins that may be stored in the body's tissues and organs.
Among other things wheatgrass juice is particularly high in chlorophyll. Wheatgrass cleanses and builds the blood due to its high content of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the first product of light and therefore contains more healing properties than any other element. All life on this planet comes from the sun. Only green plants can transform the sun’s energy into chlorophyll through the process of photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is known as the ‘life-blood’ of the plants. This important phytonutrient is what your cells need to heal and to thrive. Drinking wheatgrass juice is like drinking liquid sunshine.
Chlorophyll carries high levels of oxygen (among other things) which is especially powerful in assisting the body to restore abnormalities. The high content of oxygen in chlorophyll helps deliver more oxygen to the blood. We see red blood cell counts rise and blood oxygen levels rise very quickly with the regular drinking of wheatgrass juice and using wheatgrass juice implants. This marker is a key indicator of health recovery for abnormalities, ailments and disease. Oxygen is vital to many body processes, especially for the brain which uses 25% of the oxygen supply. This high oxygen helps support a healthy body.

Apple Cider Vinegar will also aid in fighting off parasites and help maintain friendly bacteria. Eating yogurt with friendly bacteria and/or taking Acidophilus would be beneficial. Remember sugar destroys our friendly bacteria.
Olive Leaf Extract is very well known as a parasite killer and may hugely aid in eliminating acne.
Evening Primrose Oil & Fish Oils are essential in the fight against acne as they contain gamma linolenic acid which repairs, regenerates and cleanses the skin and reduces inflammation and keep oil producing hormones under control. Best taken with Zinc.
Liquid Iodine, Ginger, Tumeric, and Boswellia have all shown great success while treating acne.
Diet has everything to do with treating any ailment, including acne, so avoid processed and refined foods altogether and all pasteurized animal products cause complications with digestion.
Drink water, lots of it! And Aloe Vera Juice!!! Aloe Vera Juice is exceptional.
Topically, use tea tree oil. (Buy it at www.babartoo.com)

Does Food Affect Our Mood?

Darn right it does! All those nutrients in healthy food have a huge impact on your brain function and therefore your mood. Think as your body as one big machine, if all the parts are working properly by obtaining the right fuel, all systems should be good to go! 
95% of serotonin is created in our gut and so is GABA. The bacteria in our gut is called our microbiome, a diverse ecosystem, and it makes up approximately 1 kg of weight in the average adult. This bacteria protects our intestinal lining, aids in digestion and the absorption of the nutrients found in what we eat, and even aids the manufacturing of neurotransmitters creating a link between our gut and our brain. 
When we eat nutrient rich whole foods we are enabling our bodies to function as they were designed.  Probiotics, prebiotics and fermented foods all aid our gut bacteria. Fibre rich foods help the bacteria in our colon. 
So bring on the whole foods (foods that have not been altered) and create a great ecosytem within you!…

Natural Remedies to Aid in Asthma Relief

I had severe asthma as a child, but my parents were very anti 'steroid filled puffers' and thank goodness. Of course had them when I needed them but they were smart to look hard at alternatives and quickly. 

As a baby I had severe asthma attacks, by the time I was 12, I did not need another puffer again. I truly believe with faith, and a proper health plan, you can manage your own asthma. In worst case scenarios puffers are a good emergency go to, but should not be an everyday norm. 

I found a great deal of relief breathing in menthol found in real essential oils including eucalyptus, not synthetic scents. A turning point came for me when I started seeing a reflexologist and my parents continued the recommended therapies at home including massaging the proper pressure points in my feet. 

Often just changing your diet can alleviate severe asthma symptoms. Many foods contain anti inflammatory properties including raw fruits and veg, and wild salmon (not farmed).
