How to Manage Sore Throat, Inflammation, Laryngitis and Cough

There are a few ways to calm and relieve a sore throat and persistent cough using natural remedies. People who want to use natural remedies to treat sore throat and cough should look for various resources, and do your research regarding herbs and supplements that can help, taking into account any medications they may be taking, which can lead to unwanted side effects.

If you have a severe or persistent cough for a few weeks, it is essential that you see a doctor.

If you want to try herbal remedies to help you with the pesky cough and sore throat try the three featured in today’s blog to start with!

Marshmallow root

Marshmallow root is a herb widely used throughout history as a treatment for coughs and sore throats. The herb can improve the irritation produced by cough, due to its high content of mucilage. It is a thick, sticky substance that covers the throat.

In another small study, it was revealed that an herbal cough syrup with marshmallow root, thyme, and ivy relieved coughs caused by common colds and respiratory tract infections. After 12 days of taking the syrup, 90 percent of the participants rated its effectiveness as good or very good.

Marshmallow root is also available as a dried herb or tea bag. Add warm (not hot) water and drink it immediately or let it cool first. The longer the marshmallow root stays in the water, the more mucilage it will drink.

Bromelain

Bromelain is an enzyme that comes from pineapples and is most abundant in the heart of the fruit.

Bromelain has anti-inflammatory properties and can also have mucolytic properties, which means that it can shrink the mucosa and remove it from the body.

Some people drink pineapple juice on a daily basis to reduce the lining of the throat and eliminate the cough. However, there is not too much bromelain in the juice to relieve symptoms.

You can find bromelain supplements at a store and they can be more effective at eliminating coughs. However, it is best to speak to a doctor before trying new supplements.

Thyme

Thyme has both culinary and medicinal uses and is a common remedy for coughs, sore throats, bronchitis, and digestive problems.

A study showed that a cough syrup with thyme and ivy relieved a cough more effectively and faster than a placebo syrup in people with acute bronchitis. The antioxidants that make up the plant may be responsible for its benefits.

To treat cough with thyme, look for a specific syrup that contains this type of herb. Alternatively, brew a cup of tea and add two tablespoons of dried thyme to one cup of hot water. Let stand 10 minutes before straining and drinking.

Three Medicinal Mushrooms You Should Know About | The Power of Mushrooms

Three medicinal mushrooms you should know about – the Power of Mushrooms

I’ve been learning about and becoming obsessed with mushrooms for the last couple of years. I’m truly in love with these powerful products and wanted to share at least 3 that you should consider trying and adding to your healthy foods arsenal.

First of, it’s important to know that mushrooms (or fungi) are neither part of the vegetable world nor part of the animal world. They are their own kingdom, the fungi kingdom! There are tens of thousands of mushroom types out there, with a few dozen considered edible and beneficial to our health. We still don’t know all of them so chances are we may learn about a new mushroom or two and its benefits in the very near future.

For now, let’s look at 3 that are among the most popular and with the strongest known health benefits.

  1. Reishi

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been using reishi for hundreds of years. It is considered the “longevity” mushroom in many parts of the world.

There is strong evidence that reishi can help:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Have anti-cancer properties
  • Fight fatigue
  • Protect your heart
  • Can help control blood sugar levels
  • Provide antioxidant protection

It is mostly used in powder form (capsules or loose powder) but can also be found in tea and tincture form

  1. Chaga

This mushroom has been used for centuries in Siberia, Scandinavia and parts of Northern Canada to help improve overall health. It is so powerful indeed that a single cup of chaga tea can provide almost all of the antioxidants you need in a day.

In addition to antioxidants, evidence shows that chaga mushrooms can help you:

  • Prevent cancer
  • Lower blood sugar levels
  • Lower cholesterol
  1. Shiitake 

This is a yummy edible mushroom. I’m particularly obsessed with them because they have a smoky flavor when oven roasted and are incredibly tasty in soups, stews, salads other dishes.

There is strong scientific data showing how shiitake can help:

  • Boost health
  • Protect against cancer
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Increase circulation

Now, have you tried or are ready to try these magical ‘shrooms? Have you tried others that you love? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

2-Herb Blend To Help You Lose Weight

In these stressful times when we need feel good experiences, it is very common for people to increase the amount of sugar and sugary-converted foods as they trigger the release of serotonin and beta-endorphins, soothing us and making us feel better, at least temporarily.

These include not just sugary treats but simple refined carbohydrates that are easily converted to glucose (sugar), like bread, white rice white pasta and others.

Unfortunately, and as you probably know, sugar overuse can lead to some serious health issues including obesity, heart disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, type-2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, hormone irregularity, and depressed mood and anxiety.

In my practice as an herbalist, I often get asked what to do to help control sugar cravings while you take other steps to learn how to eat and have a better relationship with your foods.

I’ve mentioned one of the 2 herbs here before, the other one may be new to you. But both of them in combination are even more powerful to kill sugar cravings and assist in your weight loss journey.

Fenugreek Seeds 

These seeds taste a little sweet and are often used in Indian cuisine, both sweet and savory dishes.

It is an antioxidant herb used to manage metabolic disorders like diabetes or anemia, clear excessive mucus and reduce inflammation

Fenugreek can be used to control sugar cravings and even blood sugar effectively. A study published in the Journal of Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders, “fenugreek delayed the onset of diabetes in subjects with prediabetes and even helped to reduce fasting plasma glucose, postprandial fasting glucose, and LDL cholesterol.” It was also observed that the control ground had a “4.2 times higher chance of developing type-2 diabetes compared to subjects in the fenugreek group.”

Gymnema Sylvetre

The Hindi name for gymnema translates to “destroyer of sugar.”

The plant’s compound can reduce the absorption of sugar from the intestinal tract and boost insulin production, all of which could help lower blood sugar. In some animal studies, gymnema extract also causes subjects to eat less and eventually lose weight.

How To Use It

1 Tbsp each in 24 ounces of water

Bring to a slow boil and simmer for 5-7 mins.

Let it cool

Drink 4 ounces of this drink 4-6 times a day until you have drank 3, eight-ounce cups per day

Improve Menstrual Cramps

Each month, the lining of a woman’s uterus produces chemicals called prostaglandins, which help the muscles of the uterus to contract and expel tissue and fluids during menstruation.

If the levels of prostaglandins rise a lot, they cause strong contractions of the uterine muscle which are called pains, menstrual cramps or dysmenorrhea.

In addition to menstrual cramps, other discomforts may occur such as:

– Pain that radiates to the lower part of the spine and to the thighs.

– Headache

– Vomiting

– Cramps

– Fatigue, etc.

Herbs and blends to fight pain or menstrual cramps

Remedy for menstrual colic #1: Boil, for 10 minutes, 1 tablespoon of calendula and another one of lemon balm in 1/2 liter of water. After that time, remove from heat, cover and let cool. Take this infusion throughout the day.

Remedy for menstrual colic #2: Pour 2 tablespoons of cinnamon in a cup of water that is boiling. Cover and let stand. Take 3 cups of this infusion daily. It is important that this infusion is very hot (but not burned) for ingestion.

Remedy for menstrual colic #3: Pour 1 tablespoon of licorice and another of chamomile in a cup of water that is boiling. Cover and let stand. Take, still hot (but not burning) to feel the first manifestations of pain.

Remedy for menstrual colic #4; Take a mineral bath. To do this, add 1 cup of sea salt and another of sodium bicarbonate to the bath water. Immerse for 20 minutes. This bath helps to relax the muscles and relieve abdominal pain.

Remedy for menstrual colic #5: Crampbark and red raspberry blend. This is my favorite. I take them in tincture or tea.

Get Rid Of Canker Sores

The inside of the mouth is lined with a delicate mucus. Canker sores or aphthous ulcers are a type of sore that occur in said mucosa, and they differ from cold sores because they are not caused by the herpes virus. Also, its appearance is different.

They can be very painful and cause discomfort when talking and eating. They appear on the inner side of the cheeks, the inner part of the lips, the base of the gums and the lower and upper part of the tongue, but they even form in the upper part of the mouth and the area near the tonsils.

Wellness Plan for Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an uncomfortable autoimmune disorder that causes your skin to overproduce cells and build them into scaly-looking patches across the skin. It is often accompanied by redness and inflammation and can be itchy or painful when a flare-up happens.

Western medicine is not clear about what causes psoriasis. In the word of alternative treatment, it is believed that a weakened immunity, unhealthy gut and poor nutrition can increase the chances of developing or exacerbating this condition.

So, what can you do if you struggle with psoriasis?

Readjusting your diet should be step no 1. Visit your doctor, nutritionist or herbalist (like myself) to help you learn how to change your diet to help improve your condition.

Endometriosis Pain Management

Struggling with endometriosis pain? There’s much you can do. First of, check out the video below for details, then check out the notes below the video.

Here are the foods that you should avoid or favor:

Foods to avoid

  • dairy
  • processed foods high in refined sugars
  • caffeine
  • alcohol

Foods to increase include:

  • green leafy vegetables
  • broccoli
  • celery
  • blueberries
  • ginger
  • chia seeds

Regarding the herbs and natural remedies to try, check these out:

  1. Castor oil

Castor oil has been used for hundreds of years to treat endometriosis. It can be used at the very beginning, when cramping is first felt, to help the body get rid of excess tissues. It’s important that this technique is only used before the menstrual flow, and not during.

Castor oil should be massaged directly into the abdomen. You can also mix it with a few drops of a relaxing essential oil like lavender to help relax the pelvic muscles, and apply it to a warm compress to place on the abdomen.

  1. Turmeric /ginger

Turmeric has strong anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial to people experiencing endometriosis symptoms. It can also be used to manage endometriosis in the long term. Some research has even found that it has the ability to inhibit endometrial growth.

You can take turmeric capsules, or make turmeric tea by boiling one cup of water and adding a teaspoon of both turmeric and ginger powder. You can also add honey and lemon. Drink this three times daily while experiencing symptoms, and at least once daily when you’re using it for maintenance.

Ginger tea

Some people with endometriosis experience nausea as a result of the condition. Ginger tea is one of the best home remedies for treating nausea, and research has consistently shown that it’s both safe and effective.

You can purchase ginger tea packets at many supermarkets and grocery stores. Just add them to a cup of boiling water and drink two to three times daily when experiencing nausea.

  1. Pelvic massages with Motherwort oil

Massaging the pelvic muscles can help relax them and reduce inflammation, reducing cramping. Using a few drops of high-quality lavender essential oil can help further relax the muscles. Gently massage the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.

Pelvic massages should only be used before the menstrual cycle; it may aggravate symptoms if you use it as a treatment during your period.

Treat Sunburn at Home

Sunburn! Can happen at any time in the year and regardless of whether you’re at the beach, at a picnic, climbing Machu Pichu or skiing. They are never fun and can be downright dangerous. What I love about these 5 super easy sunburn remedies is that you’re not only soothing your skin, you’re helping the skin heal and potentially preventing serious consequences in the future.

Here are my top 5 go-to sunburn cures:

1.Potato paste

You will need…
-1 potatoes
-A grater, blender

Directions
Wash and scrub your potatoes thoroughly, and then either grate them over a bowl or cut them up and put them in a blender. There is no need to remove the peels. If you’re using a blender, give them a whirl until they’ve become quite liquid.

Let it sit for 15-20 mins

Pour out the mixture, soak cotton balls thoroughly in it, and apply to sunburn. An easier perhaps more effective method would be to soak gauze and lay it over the burn. If you’re using a grater, grate the potatoes over a bowl and apply the pulp, trying to get as much juice as possible.

 

2.Cornstarch/baking soda

What you’ll need:

Cornstarch or baking soda
-Cool water

Directions
How much cornstarch or baking soda you need will vary depending on how big of an area you want to cover. Whichever one you are using add cool water-not cold- little by little until it has reached a paste-like consistency. Smear the paste gently over your burn and leave on until the heat or pain has let up some. Rinse off completely.

Let it sit for 15-20 mins

 

3. Wash with witch hazel 

What you’ll need:

-3 tablespoons of witch hazel, approximately
-Cotton balls or a clean soft cloth

Directions
The amount of witch hazel you will need will depend on the area of the burn you want to cover. Pour the necessary amount into a bowl, and soak cotton balls or a clean cloth in the liquid. Dab on just enough to cover the burn-it doesn’t need to be dripping off. Reapply as needed for pain.

Let it sit for 15-20 mins

 

4. Vinegar

Pure unfiltered apple cider vinegar seems to work the best, and often times proponents of this method say is most effective after a cool or tepid shower.

What you will need…
-1 cup raw apple cider vinegar
-a spray bottle (optional)
-Cotton balls or something similar for application

Directions
Take a shower and before patting dry, spray the burnt area with the raw apple cider vinegar.

Let it dry.

 

5. Mint & Green tea 

What you will need…
-1 quart of boiling water
-5 green tea bags
-5 bags of mint leaf tea

Directions
Steep all bags into the water letting is sit for approximately an hour so you can get all the good stuff out of it.

Strain and then chill.

Apply directly onto the burn with a cotton swab. You can substitute de green tea for black if you don’t have green tea.

Herbs that Help Manage PMS

90% of women report having painful menstrual cramps from time to time. In parts of the world, women use fennel seeds to relieve cramps and pain during menses. In studies done with fennel versus placebo, they worked just as well as over the counter pain drugs and without the side effects.

Fennels seeds also have the added bonus of helping reduce bloat and painful abdominal gas. They’re like tiny 1-2 punches of goodness.

Note: Fennel seeds relax the uterus so you may bleed heavier than normal. Please exercise caution if you have very heavy periods.

On the other hand, ginger is one of the most effective herbs for cramps AND to reduce bleeding. Having ginger tea regularly throughout your period can just do the trick. In studies, ginger seems to appears to be a highly effective treatment for the reduction of menstrual blood loss.

And of course, it is safer than most prescription medication, and with fewer side effects

In combination, these 2 powerhouses may work incredibly well to manage PMS symptoms.

Here’s how I used them:

BENEFITS:
(1) Ginger Root
Effective for cramps
Reduces inflammation
Relieves pain
Reduces bleeding
Helps with anxiety and depression

(2) Fennel Seeds
Reduces gas and bloating
Can increase blood flow
Reduces cramps and discomfort
Anti-inflammatory
Relaxes muscles

Tea Recipe
1-2 inches of ginger root
1 Tbsp of fennel seeds
3-4 cups of water

Boil at low heat for 5 mins. Let cool and drink 1 cup twice a day at least one week prior to your period or when the first symptoms appear.

Natural Herbal Blend for Chronic Pain

Medical and recreational cannabis is all the rage today and for good reason. When it come to treating and managing chronic pain cannabis is considered one of the most effective herbal blends available.

Sadly, cannabis is still not available to many people in the US and other countries due to its status as an illegal drug. So, if you live in an area where cannabis is not available or legal to use, what natural cure alternatives do you have? Here are 4 of my favorite herbal remedies to help with pain, naturally:

Fever Few

A medicinal plant traditionally used for the treatment of fevers, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, stomach aches, toothaches, insect bites, infertility, and problems with menstruation and labor during childbirth.

Arnica

Arnica is applied to the skin for pain and swelling associated with bruises, aches, and sprains. It is also applied to the skin for insect bites, arthritis, muscle and cartilage pain, chapped lips, and acne.

CA Poppy

Mostly used for nerve pain, various psychiatric conditions, blood vessel problems, sensitivity to weather changes, and sedation.

Also for long term mental and physical tiredness.

Kava Kava

Kava Kava for tension headaches and neuropathic pain
