Have you heard about the Tai tea is all over the stores and coffee shops, at first I wasn't sure about it, then I learn from my Mom that the awesomeness of the Tai tea, is that contain Ginger, Turmeric and pepper, It may have other ingredients in the different variations, but mostly is Ginger, Turmeric and pepper, the pepper works as a maximizer of the effects of the turmeric. To understand the benefits of this we have to learn more about the ingredients, we can start with Ginger, Ginger is an amazing anti-inflammatory and a natural phyto estrogen, when you hear anti-inflammatory be sure that it will help against tumor formation or cancer. Then we have Turmeric, turmeric (curcumin) is the root of the awesome Saffron, Saffron is good but the root of Saffron, the amazing Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, cancer preventing,digestive aid, lowers sugar blood levels, prevents tumor cell growth, is loaded with anti oxidants and is great against arthritis. Turmeric (Curcumin) is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, stomach-soothing, protects your liver, prostate, skin, heart. There are some contra indications, in the case of patients with gall bladder stones see the link for more info. Turmeric Info Link. Ginger Info Link.

Alpiste or also known as canary grass is an amazing aid when treating diabetes because is been discovered that alpiste milk enzymes will help lower the sugar blood levels in patients with Diabetes type II. Also helps your liver and pancreatic cells regenerate and be healthy. I always recommend to use Pureza Alpiste because is the only one safe for human consumption, the others must be totally strained and filter after mixed or blended and soak for two days before even blended. The seed has a shell with asbestos like fibers that should never be consumed by humans not even birds eat this shell, they crack it open and eat only the inside seed. To be safe use only Pureza Alpiste Pure and safe because is Silica Fiber Free. You still need to soak and blend and I like to use a strainer but the time of preparation shortens immensely. Many people drinks this enzymatic milk to loose weight because is nutritious and makes your body feel satisfy and free of cravings. Here is a video of how some people do this but again this time can be shortened and also be safer for you if you use the only alpiste for human consumption and Silica Fiber Free Alpiste Pureza Alpiste. There is a link to Pureza Alpiste at the top right corner of this blog so you can start enjoying the benefits of this amazing super food. Alpiste Milk preparation example video from the web.

Do you suffer from Osteoporosis? Did you know that it can be related to lack of exposure to sunlight and low vitamin D levels? Our body needs the right ingredients to keep homeostasis in our body, means the balance to maintain life working properly. Lacking of the proper form of vitamin D affects the amount of calcium in our blood, muscles and bones. You may ingest calcium and vitamin D, but there is a process inside of body that needs to take place for this vitamin D to go into our blood stream and take calcium into the bones and muscles. When you don’t have enough calcium in bones or muscles, these weaken experiencing fractures and also muscle pain. We need to understand the physiology of vitamin D so we can learn how important it is the exposure to sunlight. To make it simple, when we eat our foods that contain Vitamin D we are taking Ergocalciferol Vitamin D2, for this Vitamin to be useful for your body, the Vitamin D goes into the skin (vitamin Choloecalciferol D3 provitamin). Then, if you expose your skin to Ultraviolet Light from the sun, this one turns into Pre vitamin D3, which turns (isomerizes) into Vitamin D3 and enters (translocates) to the blood stream or circulation. Then our liver converts this vitamins D2 and D3 into a different form of Vitamin D in a storage form, to be used as needed. There is much more to this physiological process and you can find more info but I found here a link to a nice drawing and labels that may help you to understand. Click here to see a figure of this physiological process. As you can see there are many things that our body does by itself better known as the Autonomous System but diet and solar exposure are needed to maintain healthy bones. Our organs and glands will work according to what they sense in our body, if we are not giving our bodies the right nutrients and environment, then our body will start hurting in many ways. So get some sun and eat healthy, prevention is important to have a health in the years to come!

Azadirachta indica is the scientific name of the health superstar Neem Tree. I was amazed to learn that the word Neem in Sanskrit means; Perfect, complete and imperishable. One thing I love about natural medicine is that you learn amazing remedies and cures from other cultures which can be very helpful in our modern world. Indian ancestors have been utilizing this tree in many ways, it grows in the tropical areas of India and the people call it The Village Drugstore! You can imagine the amazing miracles that this tree has done for the people that have been using it, from generation to generation. Medicinal Properties: Antiviral, antiseptic, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-acid and antifungal. Strengthen the immune system. In other words the properties of the leaves, bark and seeds of this tree are countless, natural antibiotic, antiviral, fever reducer, inflammation reducer, etc… everything you need in one. No wonder why in the Indian natural medicine literature is also known as, sarvaroga nivarini which means the cure of all illness. Neem extract is even used as a natural non toxic insecticide and insect repellent. Also Neem oil is used in bath soap, shampoo and lotion because of its skin detoxifying properties. Nature is amazing and everything in it. .Ayurvedic medicine has used the extracts and products of this tree long time ago. You can learn more about it in the ancient Indian books of Natural Medicine Carak Samhita and Susruta Samhita Books.

and this explains the extreme weather, Obama may say that is because he needs to spend more money against global warming, oh wait now is global climate change... because now we are freezing...
We are nothing but ants comparing to the space sorrunding us. It may be that for a couple more years we have more severe cold or severe storms of all kinds in some places, we can not for sure know how will affect, but it will.
Nothing that the planet haven't experienced before and probably since man existed on the planet.
Have faith in God, we need Him, He will deliver us.
