Pumpkin Seeds A Tasty Treat For Better Health

Pumpkin seeds – if you have tried them you know that they are a delicious treat.   Did you know they also provide many health benefits?

2. Improved Bladder Function – Studies show that pumpkin seed extracts improved bladder function.

3. Depression Treatment – Pumpkin sees contain L-tryptophan, a compound naturally effective against depression.

4. Prevention of Osteoporosis – Pumpkin seeds are a natural protector against osteoporosis, because they are high in zinc. Studies show that low intake of zinc is linked to higher rates of osteoporosis.

Remove Heavy Metals With Delicious Cilantro Pesto

Cilantro is one example of an inexpensive, common herb that exhibits unusual healing properties. Historically, herbs and spices have been used in cooking as a method to preserve foods and make them safer to store and eat. We’ve become used to them to enhance or accentuate the flavors of food, but research continues to discover herbs have much more to offer than just good taste.

For instance, the leaves of the coriander plant (cilantro) could accelerate the excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum from the body, a process known as chelation. This was discovered accidentally when researchers noticed that mercury levels in urine increased after an individual consumed Vietnamese soup. The soup contained coriander, which is better known as cilantro.

Infections seem to hide and flourish in areas of the body where there are concentrations of heavy metals like mercury, lead, and aluminum. Somehow the organisms are able to use the toxic metals to protect themselves from medicine. When cilantro was used concurrently with natural antiviral or antibiotic agents and/or omega-3 fatty acids, infections could be eliminated for good.

Chelation therapy using chemical agents like EDTA has long been used to help remove heavy metals, but cilantro is the only natural substance that has shown this ability. Cilantro is an inexpensive, easy way to remove — or chelate — toxic metals from the nervous system and body tissues.

All it takes is adding some cilantro to your diet daily, for two or three weeks. Add a handful of fresh cilantro to a salad, mix a couple of teaspoons of cilantro pesto with whole wheat pasta, spread the pesto on toasted Italian bread, or have it with your favorite fish (good in soups).

Heavy metal poisoning is wide-spread. It is a major cause of hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression, blood pressure problems, premature aging, food allergies, parasites, and much more. Here is a great recipe that is not only easy to make but also really yummy, and it helps you to remove heavy metals from the body! Whether you need to detoxify heavy metals from your body or just want to use it as a preventative measure, 2 teaspoons a day is all you need to take. Consider doing this cleanse for three weeks at least once a year. The pesto is delicious on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta. It’s so good you will find ways to incorporate it into your diet.

Cilantro Pesto

1 – 2 garlic cloves

Add raw pine nuts or raw sunflowers seeds

1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves some fresh parsley (optional)

1 jalapeno pepper or chili pepper/powder

2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice

6 tablespoons olive oil (1st press, cold press, extra virgin)

1/4 spoon cumin

Sea salt & ground pepper to taste

Process the cilantro and olive oil in blender until the cilantro is chopped. Add the other ingredients and process to a lumpy paste. (You may have to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the blender.) It freezes well, so you can make several batches at once.

 

Home Remedies For Bad Breath

Have you ever had your confidence tested when the person you just said “Hello” to startled and took a quick step back? Most times, other people will take notice before the person who is afflicted with it – Bad Breath.

Bad breath can be caused by many things. Poor oral hygiene, cavities, bacteria on the back of the tongue are just some of the more obvious reasons for bad breath. Certain foods, smoking, dehydration, gum disease, or sinus conditions can be other causes for bad breath. In some persistent cases of bad breath a serious condition like gastrointestinal problems, sinus infection, bronchitis, diabetes, liver or kidney failure, or even cancer can be the underlying cause. People suffering from persistent bad breath should consult their dentist as well as their physician to rule out any serious health problems.

Ruling out any serious conditions, getting rid of offensive breath can be as simple as:

  1. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, or after every meal, flossing daily, and brushing the back of your tongue.
  2. Avoid certain beverages, like beer, wine, or coffee. Residue from these beverages attaches to the plaque in your mouth and gets into the digestive track, then with every breath the bad odor comes back out. Black tea, on the other hand, will freshen breath as well as benefit your health.
  3. Eat fresh Parsley. This breath saver contains chlorophyll, a known breath deodorizer. You can also juice a few handfuls of the green goodness, mix in some watercress for a tasty flavor twist, and sip a little whenever the breath needs freshening.
  4. Ease up on the cheese. Some of the cheesy favorites are called strong for a good reason. They can get a hold of somebody’s breath and just won’t let go. Be cautious: other dairy products may have the same effect.
  5. Make sure you are well hydrated. A dry mouth is often a smelly one.
  6. Make your own gargle. Mix equal amounts of sage extract, Calendula extract, and myrrh gum extract, store in a tightly sealed jar at room temperature. Use to gargle 4 times a day. If you are out without your gargle, simply remember to rinse your mouth with water after a meal.
  7. Certain Spices have been used for centuries as natural breath fresheners. Keep a small amount of cloves, fennel seeds, anise, or cardamom with you to chew a few after a meal. Some of the flavors may be strong and may take getting used to, so, pick the ones you like best, they are well worth a try. Not only do they freshen the breath, they also aid digestion.
  8. As a last resort, there are always the cover ups – commercial mouthwash, breath mints and gum. They are really just a short-term fix, if you take a short ride with someone in a compact car, or similar situations.
