Happy Thanksgiving!
Image

Hi everyone!

Millions in America come together on that holiday to celebrate family, friends and the good things in live.

Celebrations of Gratitude are very powerful. Science is backing up the health benefits of an attitude of gratitude:

It improves sleep, increases self-esteem, increases your energy levels, increases emotional intelligence, lessens depression and anxiety, increases the feeling of being socially connected, and makes you 25% happier. [1]

A simple way to express gratitude is to think of 5 things that you are grateful for every day. You may even choose to keep a gratitude journal. Writing a note of appreciation to a loved one, friend, or co-worker is not only boosting your health but also lifts others as well.

What about the things that seem difficult to be grateful for? Being thankful ‘that it is so and not worse’, shifts your energy, and let’s you harness the power of gratitude even in challenging times.

Use the power of gratitude daily ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving,

Jeannette von Johnsbach

Staying Healthy in a Post-Antibiotic Era: Keeping A Healthy Gut Flore

Wellness News

October 2014

Staying Healthy in a Post-Antibiotic Era
Image

Hi Carlos

Empowering yourself with the knowledge of natural approaches to health is becoming more important than ever.

Antibiotics kill bacteria, not only the bad ones, but also the good ones that we need for proper functioning of our digestive tract. Our intestines contain more immune cells than the entire rest of our body.[1]

That’s why it is critical to keep the gut flora healthy by eating unprocessed foods, and to rebuild the gut flora after exposure to antibiotics to prevent health issues. Immune dysfunction begins with gut dysfunction. Scientists at Oregon State University have linked an impaired gut flora with significant health issues such as autoimmune disease, clinical depression, allergies and asthma. [2]

Up to 70 percent of all antibiotics produced in the United States are used for ‘non-therapeutic” purposes. Low dose antibiotics are often used in large scale meat production to speed up animal growth and ward off disease. Non-organic fruits and vegetables are also often contaminated with antibiotics. Eating these foods will expose our body to these antibiotics. Go Organic! Your health is worth it! [3]

And with the flu season around the corner, the Center for Disease Control reminds us that antibiotics do nothing for viral infections, such as colds, flu, most sore throats, bronchitis, and many sinus and ear infections. Using them for viral infections will NOT cure the infection, will not keep other people from getting sick, and will not help you or your child to feel better. It will contribute to antibiotic resistance. [4]

Once a blessing to safe life, overuse and misuse of antibiotics over the years has been promoting the development of super bugs. Many strains of bacteria are becoming resistant to even the strongest antibiotics available.

The World Health Organization warns that we are headed into the so-called “post-antibiotic era”, where common infections turn deadly because of drug-resistant bacteria:

The Andreas Method Newsletter )ctober 2014

Empower yourself! Learn how to use Homeopathy effectively for cold and flu symptoms, including ear ache, sore throat, coughs, and sinusitis.

Two course dates are available for your convenience.

Homeopathy was first proposed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, and gained popularity during the 1800s based on its success in dealing with the various epidemic diseases that raged throughout America and Europe.

Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, and safe for all ages, do not create dependency, and do not create super bugs – because they are not fighting a specific microbe, but provide an informational stimulus to the bodies innate healing capabilities.

Learn how to use natural remedies ;-)

Blessings,

Home Sweet Home
Image

Hi Carlos

I posted this article in 2013, but it is such an important topic – esp. for all who care for children, that I decided to re-post it.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that air inside the typical home is 2-5 times more polluted than the air immediately outside, which is largely due to cleaners and other toxic household products.

For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1,4-dioxane is considered by the State of California to cause cancer and has been found to be potentially toxic to your brain and central nervous system, kidneys, liver and respiratory system. [2]

Two-thirds of laundry detergents tested by the Organic Consumer Association contain 1, 4 dioxane. [3] The highest levels were found in Tide (55 ppm), Ivory Snow (31 ppm) and Tide Free (29 ppm).

Following "natural" brands tested completely free: Clorox Green Works, ECOS laundry detergent (Earth Friendly Products), Life Tree laundry liquid, Method Squeaky Green laundry detergent and Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent. [4]

You can also make your own natural cleaners using baking soda, vinegar and lemons!

Vinegar diluted with water can clean almost anything in your home: windows, floors… it even can be used as a fabric softener. Baking Soda is great to scrub your bath and kitchen. Just sprinkle it on the surfaces and scrub. You may add a little lemon or organic essential oil such as lavender or lemon.

For a great non-toxic drain cleaner, sprinkle one cup of baking soda down the drain, add one cup of apple cider vinegar and let it bubble for 15 minutes, then rinse with hot water.

Clean Your Home Naturally ;-)

How to Prevent Bug Bites (and hopefully Lyme Disease) Naturally

Wellness News
by Jeannette von Johnsbach

June 2014

How to Prevent Bug Bites 
(and hopefully Lyme Disease)
Image

Hi Carlos

Summer is here – and you want to enjoy it to the fullest!

There is one very exciting rediscovery – Cistus Incanus. This shrub is native to warm southern Mediterranean locations such as the Chalkidiki peninsula of Greece. [1] Cistus is not only an amazing immune system booster and supports anti-oxidant processes.

Research shows that drinking the tea of this shrub keeps bugs away. Not just mosquitos, but ticks as well!

Most bug bites are harmless, but some may be viscous. For example, deer ticks, as well as mosquitoes, fleas, and spiders have all been linked to the transmission of Borrelia burgdorferi. The first symptom of Borreliosis (Lyme disease) may a bull’s-eye shaped rash with flue-like symptoms. Treatment at this point is crucial. If Borreliosis (Lyme disease) is left untreated, the Lyme spirochetes can spread and may go into hiding in your body causing chronic Lyme, a multi-systemic disease with symptoms ranging from arthritis, facial palsy, nervous system, joint and heart problems and a plethora of unrelated symptoms. Lyme can be seriously debilitating for people as well as animals such as dogs and horses.[2]

Research at the University of Leipzig, Germany, showed, that polyphenols and other compounds of Cistus Incanus agglutinate borrelia spirochetes rendering them harmless. People suffering from lyme disease have found relief by this tea. [3] Cistus Incanus not only repels bugs, but also goes after borrelia spirochetes in the body.

Order some delicious Cistus Incanus here, and have a cup before you play out in the woods!

You may also want to use topical insect repellants. Many believe that DEET-based repellants are most effective. Interestingly, DEET is not only damaging to nerves and brain cells, but also is losing its efficacy.

A research team from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine observed that following three hours after exposure, many of the mosquitos were no longer averse to DEET. Mosquitos developed a type of immunity even after minimal exposure. [4]

Opt for natural insect repellents such as Bien Ella or Neem Aura Naturals Outdoor Spray. These non-toxic repellents use essential oils or other plant compounds that the insects simply don’t like or which make bugs sick.

You can even make your own!

First, choose essential oils that you like. You will need a total of 40-50 drops off essential oils per 8 ounces of bug repellent. You can use one kind of essential oil, or mix several. Choose from Citronella, Cedar, Cajeput, Catnip, Neem, Rosemary, Clove, Geranium, Lavender, Eucalyptus, cedar, Mint, Lemongrass, Basil, Tea Tree and Thyme.

For an oil-based bug repellent, mix 40-50 drops of essential oils into 8oz of coconut oil. Store it in a glass container and dabb it lightly on wrists, behind the ears, behind the knees and around the ankles to keep bugs away.

For a water-based bug repellent, fill an 8oz spray bottle with 4 ounces of witch hazel, 4 ounces of water and the 40-50 drops of essential oils.

When you spent time in an area known to harbor ticks, wear light colored clothing covering most of your skin. Upon return examine the whole body and remove any ticks. If they are already attached, don’t use oil or other substances. In Germany we use a Zecken-Zange, which you simply turn counter clock wise to remove the tick. If you are interested in a Zecken-Zange or Cistus Incanus Tea, send me an email.

And just in case you do end up with a very itchy and hot mosquito bite that won’t let you sleep: Use homeopathic Apis 30c for relief. If the bite area feels cold, choose Ledum 30c.

Have a Great Summer – Naturally ;-)

Blessings,
Jeannette von Johnsbach

Chlorophyll is Essential for Human Health

Chlorophyll is Essential for Human Health.
Raw Family’s Best-Selling Book Package

Chlorophyll is Essential for Human Health.

Fragment from Victoria’s up-coming new book. Copyright ©2014 by V. Boutenko Please do not copy without written permission from Victoria!

Chlorophyll is neccessary for healthy bodies Look at these two molecules and compare them:

The molecule on the left is a chemical formula of heme, oxygen carrying portion of Hemoglobin, which is an important part of human blood. The molecule on the right belongs to chlorophyll. These two molecules are very close in their structure, and the main difference is that that heme contains iron in the middle, and chlorophyll has magnesium. Obviously, green plants are vitally important for the human nutrition.

According to the USDA, 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient, and magnesium deficiency is a major contributor to our epidemic of chronic and degenerative diseases, including heart disease, osteoporosis, depression, and various autoimmune disorders. Here are some other diseases and symptoms associated with magnesium deficiency:

back Pain
chronic Fatigue Syndrome
stress and depression
Green Smoothie Cures insomnia
headaches and migraines
ischemic heart disease (angina)
hangover and alcoholism
muscle cramps and spasms
constipation
fibromyalgia
cardiac arrhythmia
osteoporosis
arthritis
diabetes
hypertension
asthma
kidney stones and gall bladder
dental caries
painful menstruation and premenstrual syndrome
processes, accelerating aging (calcification)
Eye twitching
sighing
hiccups

Indeed, magnesium is essential for humans. “The ratio of calcium to magnesium in the diets of the Paleolithic man was 1.3 to 1, but the diet that is commonly used now has shifted that ratio to 5 to 1. The worst foods that can hurt calcium-magnesium ratio are dairy products. The calcium-to-magnesium ratios found respectively in milk, yogurt and hard cheeses are 7:1, 11:1, and 26:1.”1 Even people who don’t eat dairy often still consume too much calcium with other foods or supplements. According to Ukrainian chemist Nikolay Druziak, excess calcium makes human bones brittle similar to glass, and only proper ratio of calcium to magnesium creates really strong bones.

Since each molecule of chlorophyll contains an atom of magnesium, consuming more greens is a great way to get your magnesium. Here are the greens that have the highest magnesium content.

• Swiss chard (one bunch or 340 g) contains 276 mg magnesium
• Spinach (one bunch or 340 g) contains 270 mg magnesium2
• Stinging nettles (one bunch or 340 g) contains 195 mg magnesium3

Enjoy your green smoothies!
