It’s dreadful to suffer from bad breath – you feel like your very words are offensive to those around you, and it lowers your self-confidence when you think that people don’t want to hear you because of it. Humans are social creatures, and if something is keeping us from communicating with those around us in the most effective way, we feel like we’re at a disadvantage.
The good thing about tea – especially a hearty green tea – is that it provides a healthy and stable base for different potions that help to ease different ills. The best tea to use as a base for tonics is definitely a mid grade green, like a Maofeng. I will write here about some healthy green blends that are popular in China.
Today just feels like the day that I needed to share this with you. This is autism — according to my experience and research. My beautiful son is recovering wonderfully from this disorder, and I am happy to share how we did it with anyone who needs help.
The majority of the English-speaking world is missing out on this powerful medicine! Black cumin, from the plant Nigella sativa, is just starting to make the rounds in the Western world, but this potent healer has been well-known and respected as an all-around remedy in African and Islamic countries for millennia.
Normally when someone says ginger, I think about that chewy candy I can’t get enough of or my favorite way to spice up a stir-fry. But recently, I’ve learned about the unique Thai massage therapy techniques that use ginger, specifically cassumunar ginger, to relieve deep-seated muscle and joint tension.
I must say I was very proud of the little Kuding leaf and glad that my friends could appreciate it as much as I do. Kuding tea (bitter tea) is grown all over China, in two distinct varieties. The Sichuan variety, which I know very well, is called Qing Shan Lui Shui (Jade Mountain Green Water) and the Hainan variety is just straight Kuding (bitter nail).
Today, antibiotics are prescribed for all infections indiscriminately and as a result of this, there is increased microbial resistance, the evolution of super-bugs like the MRSA’s, the ESBL organisms, the resurgence of fatal viral infection and fungal diseases, and a population that is grossly immunologically compromised. So, we’d like to recommend some natural alternatives to antibiotics.
One taste of turmeric and you’ll know why this vivacious root vegetable has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to cleanse the liver, reduce arthritic inflammation, and improve energy levels. This powerful plant is a close cousin of ginger and has the same kind of super-concentrated flavor.
Achiote, otherwise known by its Aztec name of achiotl, comes from the Annatto tree (Bixa orellana), and is known for the brilliant saffron color its seeds exhibit after the pods split open to reveal their tiny inhabitants. The intense vermilion hue comes from the high concentration of bixin that the annatto seed contains.
If you experience regular acid reflux, don’t ignore it – it could become chronic and turn to GERD and become a permanent condition by wearing away at the necessary mucous linings of your stomach and esophagus.
