It is a very important fact to know that vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins that our body’s crave every single day of our lives. Without vitamin D, our body’s would not be able to regulate calcium and phosphorous absorption, build strong muscles, teeth, bones, and as well as boosting our immune system. We need vitamin D for a lot of reasons, however, if you do not then you could be at risk for bacterial/viral infections, heart diseases, and multiple sclerosis.

Here are ways to tell if you have a vitamin D deficiency or not.

Sudden Fatigue

People who do not get enough vitamin D will often find themselves exhausted for no reason at all. Even doing the slightest bit of work can fatigue a person if they do not have enough. If you have a workout routine and find yourself losing in endurance, then you might need more vitamin D in your diet.

Constantly Sweating

If you do not have enough vitamin D, you may find yourself sweating at the forehead constantly. This could be an early warning sign that you are not getting enough vitamin D in your diet.

Shifting Moods

Not getting enough vitamin D can also make a person have mood swings. It is important that you get enough so that your serotonin levels are in prime condition. This hormone is the reason for your good mood feeling and has a major impact on the rest of your body if not satisfied.

Bone And Muscle Weakness

You need vitamin D in order to build strong, healthy bones and muscles. If you do not, you may find your teeth, bones, and muscles start to deteriorate and will have a hard time recovering from any activity from the day. This also ties into that fatigue feeling.

Hopefully this article has helped you identify some problems you may have. Remember to keep up on your daily vitamin D intake! Your body will be thanking you greatly!

Migraines are one of the cruelest things that can happen to us, especially when we are trying to enjoy ourselves with friends, family, or wherever we may be at the time. Sometimes migraines can be triggered by weather pressure changes, eating certain soy products, dehydration, loud noises, stress, and even red wine.

As we try to go about our daily lives, it can be difficult to reduce these minor annoyances that cause a severe pain. If you are a woman, then you know all too well about having a migraine from hormonal changes, which isn’t fun for anyone involved.

We come baring good news about a quick and simple way of relieving these extreme pains. According to a recent study that found that monoterpenes in frankincense as well as other essential oils can take on the role of a powerful anti-inflammatory. What this means is is that they are able to reduce the swelling of your blood vessels/reduce severe pain.

Another study shows that frankincense oil is able to reduce the frequency as well as severeness of headaches in individuals who suffer from the intensity of debilitating cluster migraines. However, if frankincense does not work well with you, applying a cold, wrapped ice pack to the back of your neck can reduce a migraine pretty quickly. You can also try running cold water over your head to help reduce the size of your blood vessels. Another method you can try is holding cold water in your mouth as you breathe through your nose.

These are all really good ways to reducing migraines and the severeness that comes along with them.


If you have the unfortunate case of the common cold and can’t seem to stop coughing up phlegm deep in your lungs, then you will want to try this out.

Carrots are some of the most amazing natural foods that we could put into our body’s for a variety of reasons. Carrots are extremely rich in vitamin A as well as beta-carotene, which is used to maintain the healthiness of our eyes/vision. Carrots are also a really good source of vitamins K, C, and B including the essential minerals they are packed with which include phosphorous, potassium, calcium, iron, and manganese.

To get to the point though, carrots are awesome when it comes to reviving our respiratory system, as they can relieve bronchitis, asthma, cough, and plenty of other health issues.


  • 3-4 spoons of honey
  • 1/2 kg of carrot


Cut your gathered carrots into slices, letting them boil in water as to soften them. Remove your carrots from boiling and place them into a blender or you can use a fork if you do not have a blender. It is important that you save the water you boiled the carrots in.

Let your boiled carrot water cool down and then add the honey to the water. Combine the water and mashed carrots together in order to finally prep your natural syrup. Keep this concoction in a cold place or in your refrigerator.

You will want to consume up to 3-4 spoons throughout your day. You will begin to notice how effective this remedy is after about one to two days. The phlegm in your lungs will be almost entirely gone and your cough will have been cured!

As we all know turmeric is one of the most amazing herbs that you can use for just about anything. Warming/peppery, and it’s signature bitter flavor accompanied with it’s pleasant aroma of ginger and orange, you will be wanting endless turmeric as long as you live, and here’s how easy it is!

Turmeric is amazing for a variety of different reasons, mostly because it has anti-inflammatory properties as well as being just as potent as ibuprofen. So, get ready to jot down some notes, because you are about to learn how to grow your own super-spice!

How To Grow Turmeric Indoors

You may also grow turmeric outdoors if your climate is a lot warmer wherever you live. It’s important to note that turmeric grows from rhizomes, which are essentially the likeness of roots. Turmeric does not produce it’s own seeds, and the rhizomes that turmeric produces are the only way you can cultivate the root. However, the rhizomes are not hard to plant in the slightest.

When looking for turmeric, I suggest taking a trip to your nearest health food store or Indian food store, and look for a rhizome that is riddled with bumps. These bumps/buds will branch off into a new plant. Next on the list, a sizable pot for the rhizomes.

Find a pot that has pretty good drainage holes. The size has to be at least 14 inches by 14 inches, as turmeric is not a fragile herb at all. Fill your obtained pot with a high-quality potting soil, just an inch below the rim.

If your rhizomes are pretty large, you can split them into smaller pieces that have 2-3 bumps/buds on it, planting them 2 inches deep with the bud side pointing up. Water the soil and watch them grow!

You will have endless turmeric for days and not even know what do with the rest! Happy planting!

Keeping our lungs healthy and clean plays just one of the various key roles in order our body in order to function. If you are one who has experienced the tar that builds up inside after smoking for so many years, or having certain allergies in your home, keeping your lungs healthy is a very essential part of your life. Negligence of keeping your lungs pure and clean can lead to a menagerie of respiratory diseases such as chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, and asthma.

  • If you are recovering from a cold like virus, then adding 6-10 drops of eucalyptus oil into a pot of hot water can stimulate your respiratory system and even improve the functionality of your respiratory tract. Place a towel over your head as well as the pot and inhale the steam deeply until the water is no longer warm.
  • Collecting a glass of cranberry juice as you are about to go to bed can help strengthen your body to fight against bacterial infections.
  • Have a potassium enriched beverage with your lunch. Grapefruit, orange, and plum juice contain a considerable amount of potassium which is used to help support the body through detoxing.
  • Drinking carrot juice in between your breakfast and lunch can encourage your pH levels within the blood that amplify the effectiveness of cleansing your lungs.
  • Be sure that you avoid dairy products as much as you possibly can. Milk is one of the primary sources for toxins that can damage your body. The reason behind this is due to the chemicals, dairy products that come from large-scale livestock farms tend to not be so healthy for you.

Hopefully these tips will have helped you in doing what is the right decision for your diet.


High blood sugar is not just something that diabetics have to worry about, but all of us as well. If you’ve experienced being always hungry, gaining weight despite slowing down on calories, and having frequent stomach problems, then you may be experiencing what high blood sugar really is.

Of course, these spikes occur when you eat cake, soda, and candy but the real danger happens when your blood sugar levels stay high for long periods of time. This can definitely lead to having diabetes as well as other provoking health issues. However, having these symptoms can motivate a person to taking control of the situation and making themselves healthy once again.

Some of the reasons why high blood sugar occurs:

  • Use of certain medication
  • Certain health conditions
  • Stress
  • Lack of exercise
  • Very poor diet

Some of the symptoms of high blood sugar:

  • Nerve issues
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty with concentrating
  • Itchy/dry skin
  • Constant dry mouth
  • Always thirsty
  • Always hungry
  • Always needing the bathroom

As a suggestion to combat these symptoms and regaining your overall health again, using the Glycemic Index (GI) can help you determine which foods will help you decrease your high blood sugar. This is a numerical index that ranks carbohydrates that are based on their rate of glycemic response, which essentially gives you which foods are able to raise your blood sugar levels after consumption.

Foods that are high GI tend to be quickly digested and absorbed that mark fluctuations in your blood sugar levels. Compared to foods that have a low GI tend to be slowly digested/absorbed that can give you a gradual rise in your blood sugar. Low GI foods are preferred for their healthy benefits that can reduce your insulin levels, insulin resistance, and as well as preventing other high blood sugar symptoms.

Hopefully this article has helped you stay mindful about your health and what you should do next in order to fix it!

It is becoming abundantly clear that certain household “goods” that range from food packaging, personal care products, and the cushions that reside on your couch are actually prime suspects for harboring dangerous chemicals. What else that factors into this kind of unfortunate misconduct is that they are deemed to be “healthy” to you in some shape or form with a label that states otherwise.

This article is aimed to help you know how to identify when something you are purchasing is actually extremely toxic for your lifestyle.

1. Certain Humidifiers

When it comes to adding a humidifier into your household you must be prepared that it doesn’t backfire on you. If you already live in a pretty humid place but wish to keep your household full of moisture, then consider the rapid development of mold that may come along with purchasing a humidifier.

2. Certain Cotton Swabs

It is important for your ears to have a healthy amount of earwax, why? Because your ears are able to self clean because of it. However, excess earwax can be moved out of your ear canal automatically, just as cells can actually migrate themselves naturally.

In fact, the American Academy of Otolaryngology, the Head and Neck Surgery Foundation, have stated that under ideal situations your ear canals should never have to be cleaned especially with the aid of cotton swabs. As they so declared:

“Unfortunately, many people mistakenly believe that earwax should be routinely removed for personal hygiene. This is not so. In fact, attempting to remove earwax with cotton-tipped swabs, bobby pins, or other probing devices can result in damage to the ear, including trauma, impaction of the earwax, or even temporary deafness.

These objects only push the wax in deeper, and can block the ear canal entirely.”

3. Antibacterial/Whitening Toothpastes

The grit that is put in whitening toothpaste that is used to make your teeth all sparkly white may actually be damaging your enamel or even be destroying your gums and teeth which could make them more sensitive. I would even go as far as to avoid antibacterial toothpaste as well, such as Colgate Total, which has been known to contain triclosan.

There are a plethora more of these toxic products, hopefully this short introduction has opened your eyes to some of the chemicals and toxic products we purchase daily.


Soy products are considered to be some of the healthier choices compared to our traditional cooking methods. However, soybean oil is considered to be one of the most harmful ingredients in processed foods and is widely used as a cooking oil all over the United States.

This means that anything else that contains soy must also not be the best choice for your overall health and should be taken into consideration on what your alternative options are.

In order for soybeans to be considered edible, they are required to go through a large treatment process. If your body has too much soy intake, it will begin to produce steroid hormones which creates a risk of developing Alzheimer’s, early puberty within girls, as well as a delay in physical maturation within boys.

To give you even more as too how much harm comes from this product, there is a bog production of GMO soybeans all over the world, which means that soy is pretty difficult to avoid in today’s society. In fact, it’s so favored that mothers are told to switch to soy milk instead of breast milk for their infants.

There is a guise that has been cast over the word soy that has us all believing we are doing the right thing for our body’s when in actuality we are doing the complete opposite. It’s better that you research everything possible that involves soy products, you may save yourself a lot of stress and wasted time from consuming this toxic ingredient.
