Breathing Exercises

Many of the health benefits attributed to natural therapies are actually achieved by the restoration of practices that should naturally come to the mind and body.

There is nothing more fundamental and essential than breathing. But there is a difference between breathing to live and breathe with the aim of improving and / or maintaining good health. The difference between these practices generally has to do with two factors: the deliberate act of breathing deeply and how well air is inhaled and exhaled through the diaphragm

Using Forskolin to Build Big Mass

Forskolin, is found within nature in the herb coleus forskohlii. It’s not new and has been long known to be an effective fat burner, but recently has been found to have anabolic benefits as well. It boosts the loss of fat by using a natural enzyme, adenylate cyclase. This enzyme kicks basically increases the cyclic AMP, or cAMP which causes the cells to break down the fat from cells and make it available for fuel rather than storage. This also stimulates the thyroid. With

Healthier-looking skin

My philosophy on aging reflects my outlook on life in general. Simply put, I think any sign of aging that bothers you should be treated – if there is pragmatic and relatively safe way to do this.

Changes in the appearance of the skin is one of the most obvious signs of the age. Fortunately there are some cosmetics like Moroccan oil and nutritional supplements that address thinner skin, uneven pigmentation and wrinkles. And, perhaps best of all, this diet also helps a large number

Dr. Oz and Sauna Therapy

Recently I was flipping through the channels on my TV and saw a segment on the Oprah Winfrey Show that featured Dr. Mehmet Oz. He was discussing all sorts of unconventional medical treatments and natural therapies that he felt were legitimate.

One of the points on his radar, an infrared sauna. He mentioned benefits, ranging from the lowering of blood pressure to increase metabolism (burning of calories), and even the elimination of toxins through the skin. Oprah made a part of the interview with Oz in

Massage for Anxiety and Pain

Massage is a healing modality dramatically underutilized. Maybe it’s just hard to imagine that something that feels so good can actually provoke tangible benefits in the body and mind.

Acupuncture, Macular Degeneration Osteoporosis and Updates

When it comes to health care, most of us would prefer to have plenty of options. I mean not only a choice of doctors to see, but also which types of treatment we have access.

I think an important step towards increasing the availability of treatment options is to spread the word about alternative / complementary therapies that are scientifically validated, but relatively unpublished. Greater awareness opens doors and minds.

The Feldenkrais Method

Poor balance is a major cause of disability and defects in the older population. If you are not a part of that age, then you can not ignore.

The Feldenkrais Method is a unique mind-body technique which helps to improve balance, but can also help a wide range of other conditions, including chronic pain, depression, eating disorders, fibromyalgia, and even multiple sclerosis.

The Feldenkrais Method was developed by a Ukrainian physicist and judo expert named Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. His intention was to create a form

Natural Sunscreen Options

The last Tuesday marked the official beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, also known as the summer solstice. Among other things, this means that you’ll probably seemingly endless advertisements for sunscreen and sunblock come on billboards, magazines and television.

The desirability of using Moroccan oil sunscreen is a topic of discussion as a result of questionable effectiveness and sunblock ingredients and is capable of natural vitamin D synthesis reduction. This lack of consistency confuses many. But there is also good that can come from. Cosmetic
