  • 20 Ways to Stay Healthy During Cold and Flu Season

    20 Ways to Stay Healthy During Cold and Flu Season

    1. Eat raw fruits and veggies daily, preferably half of your food intake.  Try to vegetablesmake as many of those fruits and vegetables bright and colorful. Colorful fruits and vegetables have a high antioxidant content. Antioxidants help to assist your immune system and prevent you from getting sick.

    2. Avoid all dairy foods especially during an outbreak but also when congested. Raw dairy is much better but also best avoided when congested.

    3. Avoid processed meats and any meat from animals raised with hormones and antibiotics. These antibiotic residues weaken our guts by killing off beneficial gut flora. We should replace and maintain normal gut flora by making probiotics an essential part of our daily regimen.

    4. Avoid all processed foods, artificial sweeteners, hydrogenated oils, refined carbohydrates, high fructose corn syrup, food colorings, MSG etc.

    5. Take apple cider vinegar in water daily. (1 tbsp in 4oz water) and or the juice of ½ a lemon in 4oz water.

    6. Take a high quality greens formula daily. Eat more greens in your diet such as kalekale, collards, beet greens etc…

    7. Use only extra virgin coconut oil to cook with. Use cold pressed olive or flax seed oil on salads. Especially avoid all hydrogenated and denatured fats, which upset your hormonal balance. This in turn causes stress and weakens your immune system.

    8. Take a high quality Vitamin D supplement during winter months or if you do not get sufficient sun exposure. When the sun is out, try to expose as much of your body as you can to the sun between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. Try to get at least 15 minutes of sun exposure. Sun exposure should vary depending upon your skin pigment. The lighter the skin the less sun exposure.

    9. Get daily exercise and maintain an upright posture. Upright posture helps maintain optimal respiratory and lymphatic function.

    10. Avoid public places during any outbreak.

    11. Wash your hands thoroughly with natural vegetable based soap. Avoid using antibacterial soaps, which kill the good bacteria on your skin. Washing off dirt and perspiration is all you need to do where hand washing is concerned. Use the same practice on your body.

    12. Eliminate fluoride from your water supply with a good water filtration system. Also filter chlorine out of the water you use to shower with. Both chlorine and fluoride depress your immune system.

    13. Use only natural, non-chemical personal care products such as shampoos, soaps, creams etc. If you would not put it in your mouth, do not put it on your skin.

    14. Wear natural fiber clothing.  This in itself has an effect on your body’s electro-magnetic field. Synthetic clothing weakens that field. A weakened magnetic field lowers immune activity.

    15. Keep your living space free from clutter. Keep your kitchen and bathroom surfaces clean. Use grapefruit seed extract to disinfect, mixed with water. Use 7 to 10 drops for a quart spray bottle. This is also a great gargle (2 drops to 2 oz warm water) for sore throats.

    16. In times of an outbreak use a quart spray bottle with the following essential oils in it; eucalyptus, pine, grapefruit, orange and lemon. Use 12-15 drops of each oil.

    17. Watch your emotions. Keep your stress levels low with deep breathing, good communication and a healthy lifestyle. Stress weakens the immune system.

    18. Take immune building herbs such as astragulus, ashwagandha, echinacea, reishiosha root, shatavari, Siberian ginseng, reishi , maitake, cordyceps, agaricus, shiitake and coriolus. These herbs and mushrooms all work to help prevent you from getting sick.

    19. Adopt a healthy sleep regimen. Lack of sleep weakens your immune system and in many studies has been repeatedly demonstrated to have effects ranging from immune system suppression to increased blood pressure and poor sugar metabolism.

    20. Keep well hydrated. When you are dehydrated, your cells do not function as well, your circulation becomes more sluggish and your blood pressure tends to rise.

  • The Red Reishi Mushroom: King of Fungus

    Reishi Mushroom Reishi Mushroom

    Ganoderma Lucidum, aka The Red Reishi Mushroom, is a well-known fungus native to Asia.  G. Lucidum has been dubbed as the "King of Mushrooms" for all of its immune boosting properties. This fungus has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years. The fruiting body of the fungus and the mycelium are used for medicinal purposes.

    The reishi mushroom is often used in supporting a healthy immune system.  Reishi has been known to support healthy cholesterol levels. It also is known to support healthy lung function; and is beneficial in aiding with kidney and liver detoxification.  For many reasons, it's understandable why this miraculous herb is called "The King of Mushrooms". Surprisingly, these are just a few beneficial properties of the mushroom.

    Reishi mushroom is fantastic to ingest in a coffee blend. The mushroom hardly leaves a bitter, earthy taste when blended correctly. As much as the world loves coffee, this isn't the only way to ingest reishi. The mushroom can be taken in powder form, as a tincture, or eaten as is.

  • What Can Turmeric Do For You?

    A pinch of turmeric can go a very long way. The popularity of turmeric has been rapidly growing in the U.S. and in other parts of the world. The plant and its benefits are nothing new, however. Asia has been using the herb for more than 4,000 years in their cuisine and medicinally. Turmeric aids in promoting a healthy smile, and it will also promote a healthier scalp. Add a little bit of turmeric in a homemade toothpaste, or blend it into your own hair paste to try it out for yourself. Turmeric also contains an important chemical called curcumin. Curcumin has been known to support a healthy inflammatory response in the body.

  • Protein Supplements can be Dangerous!

    I have been telling people for years now that the 'protein myth' is alive and well in the U.S. and apparently the world considering the news today that a 25 year old body builder in Australia died from what appears to be excessive consumption of protein and protein supplements.

    I have had the opportunity to speak with a few body builders after they had blood work done and the line of questioning goes like this:  Do you take a lot of protein isolates?  They invariably answer in the affirmative.  Next question:  How does you liver panel look?  The answer is invariably will there were some problematic issues in my last panel.  Too much of just about anything can harm your health.  Protein in excessive amounts certainly qualifies as a harmful product if done in large amounts.

    My advice is BE CAREFUL with any protein supplement and please watch your diet.  Even lean meats in excessive amounts can be harmful especially if it is the 'conventional' type beef, full of BGH, antibiotics and lord know what else.  These sort of chemicals can accumulate in the body and cause all sorts of issues.

    We always like to use as much vegetable sourced proteins as they come with all the good fats and oils required to break down proteins.  This is so important and why many of the protein isolates out there can be harmful, they are devoid of naturally occurring fats an oils!  Hemp hearts are a great example, while not as high in protein per serving, they are a tasty and highly nutritious food that contains great omega 3 and 6s.  Food combining is something we should all do to maximize proteins in our diets, rice/grains and beans/legumes for example.  I don't know of a single incident where someone died of over doing these types of foods.  Make sure they are organic!

    Enerhealth Botanicals tries to present good information concerning your health and ways to achieve optimum health.  For everyone that phrase, 'optimum health' can carry different meanings and we try to meet people where they find themselves on the health continuum.  Enerhealth also offers a variety of organic nutritional supplements, foodaceuticals, that can help you achieve your personal goals, whatever they may be.

    To read more about the Australian body builder you can access that information here.

     

     

     

     

  • Water Quality Database, finally

    While not perfect the new database set up by Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a step in the right direction!  The site can be found by going to the EWG website or just click here.

    Mike Adams at Natural News also does some phenomenal water analysis from time to time and reports them to the public.  Naturalnews.com

    Here at Enerhealth we recognize the poor quality of the water in many places and offer water filtration devices that take out most of the contaminants.  www.enerhealthbotanicals.com

     

  • Colon Cancer is on the rise, Why?

    Wow, you would think that someone might make a connection.  What goes into the mouth, ends up in the gut and out the colon.  Does anyone think that it might be diet?  Perhaps the influx of GMOs?  This would be an interesting study that will probably not happen.  Lots of great drugs and radical radiation and chemo to ‘cure’ all your ills!

     

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/08/health/colon-cancer-rectal-cancer-deaths-study/index.html

     

    The article says: “To reduce your risk of colon and rectal cancers, Siegel recommended maintaining a healthy body weight, staying physically active, avoiding drinking alcohol excessively and avoiding smoking.”  All of which is true but the odd part missing is what I mention above!  Perhaps a better diet, one that eliminates as much as possible GMOs and high quality supplements could be the best preventative measures!

    Here at Enerhealth Botanicals we believe in proper nutrition and great herbal supplements to achieve and maintain optimum health!  Our view on this subject does not include GMO anything!
