Ginger has been used medicinally for centuries and in the U.S. is perhaps most known for its ability to soothe nausea and stomach upset.

It is without a doubt the best remedy I know of for nausea. You don’t need much just a piece the size of your fingernail minced very finely and swallowed.  It is phenomenally effective.

But now new research suggests this natural root may provide help for much more, including for arthritis pain, heart health, and people with asthma, in whom ginger may enhance the effects of the bronchodilating medications conventionally used to treat their condition. It may even be useful for weight control!

What is inflammation?


Before we proceed with our discussion of the top anti inflammatory herbs, it’s necessary that we talk about what inflammation really is, what are its causes, and the like. Scientifically speaking, inflammation refers to a condition that occurs when the immune system reacts to an injury, irritation, infection and other external changes. We normally associate inflammation with skin problems. When you see a reddish bump on your skin, you’re most likely to say its inflammation. People usually consider it as normal. But sometimes, internal inflammation can take place which may lead to more serious health problems.

Five foods to add to your diet this year

By Kristin





THEY SAY that variety is the spice of life, and it’s especially true when it comes to diet. The more variety, the more vitamins and minerals we feed our bodies. This year, why not add these super health foods to your diet?

Black rice

If white rice is a staple in your diet, you’re missing out on a whole new rice world. Black rice has been around for thousands of years, but only now is it getting the attention it deserves. Evidence suggests that black rice may have more cancer-fighting antioxidants than blueberries or blackberries. It’s also loaded with fiber and B vitamins.

Frozen oatmeal with frozen cherries

Numerous research studies prove that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast eaters tend to weigh less and are healthier than those who skip it. But, many people say they’re just too busy in the morning. The solution? Buy some frozen oatmeal and frozen cherries for a quick, microwaveable breakfast high in fiber and antioxidants. The oatmeal will help keep you fuller for longer, and the cherries will help your body fight off nasty free radicals.

Hemp seed

When it comes to taking in omega-3 fatty acids (shown to help fight inflammation, keep the brain healthy and decrease the risk of heart attack), a little bit of hemp seed goes a long way. Throw some in a smoothie, stir into yogurt or even sprinkle some on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If you don’t like fish and you don’t want to take a supplement, hemp seed is a cheap, easy way to get omega-3s.

Vegan gluten-free veggie patties

These low-calorie patties are a great option for picky kids (and adults) who are looking for an easy way to eat more vegetables. Veggie patties give you a burger-like experience without the calories and saturated fat.

Lemon juice

Looking to lose weight? Goal number one is to stop drinking calories, but that doesn’t mean chugging down the fake stuff (diet cola), as artificial sweeteners have been linked to increased waist circumference, increased crease appetite and increased risk for vascular events. Instead, drink water with a drop of bottled lemon juice or slices of lemon. It’s easy, tasty and hydrating, and it may help you lose weight. C
