Did you know that are body make 90% of its own Vitamin D?

Well I guess , I am part of the 10%  that does not produce its own Vitamin D as I was told that I was Vitamin D deficient.

So I am on the quest to not have to take any more pills. So I am learning more natural ways to heal my body and get what I need to live a healthier lifestyle.

I have been on a 30 Day Challenge to see if there will be any difference in how I feel with making some changes in my life that include getting up and moving with gym visits, increasing my Vitamin D intake ( which is the primary focus of this post) and drinking more water.

So you are Vitamin D deficient….What do you do now ? Education is the key, in my opinion.

Vitamin D is also known as the Sunshine Vitamin and can be produced with mild exposure or consumed in food or supplements.

Make sure you “Enjoy your Day ” Get out and get some  “Sunshine”

Research shows that 5-10 minutes outside 2-3x per week allows the body to produce sufficient VitaminD, but only has a half life of two weeks. So it’s  necessary to be consistent in order not to be VitaminD deficient…

Vitamin Day has many roles that included the following:

  1. Maintain health of bones & teeth
  2. Support the health of the immune system and nervous system
  3. Regulate insulin levels
  4. Support lung function
  5. Vitamin D is important for the regulation of calcium

Healing Fibromyalgia: Something New

IMG_6866
Standard
Purchased at my local whole foods store
Information about this product shared from a FB Friend…..Thanks for information….

 

I am always looking and researching was to heal Fibro and other pain conditions . I have been dealing with a lot if issues since my recent surgery. 

New pains as well as infection in my colon due to the fact that it was injured during my procedure. 
I have been on numerous rounds of antibodic medication to help aid me in healing. 

I was recently informed that the Manuka Raw Honey had great benefits. I did my own research and I am now sharing. I went and purchased mine on today. I will keep everyone posted on the results.
 
In regards to helping deal with fibromyalgia, there are benefits to eliminating inflammation and decreasing the everyday pain associated with arthritis and other joint pain.

Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Advocates say it treats wound infections and other conditions.

WebMD takes a look at what the science says about using manuka honey as a medicine

Components of Manuka Honey are listed below 

Hydrogen peroxide is a component of honey.  The peroxide gives the  most honey its antibiotic quality. But some types of honey, including manuka honey, also have other components with antibacterial qualities.

Another antibacterial component in manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MG). MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities. This is a great benefit in combating issues you may be dealing with in your body in regards to fighting infection.

In manuka honey, MG comes from the conversion of another compound — dihydroxyacetone — that is found in high concentration in the nectar of manuka flowers.

MG is thought to give manuka honey some of its antibacterial power. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibiotic effect. But, there may also be other compounds involved in the medicinal effect of manuka honey ( follow link below for additional information )

How is it used…..

  • Preventing and treating cancer
  • Reducing high cholesterol
  • Reducing systemic inflammation
  • Treating diabetes
  • Treating eyeear, and sinus infections
  • Treating gastrointestinal problems

Healing Power of Honey

Honey has been used since ancient times to treat multiple conditions. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that researchers discovered that honey has natural antibacterial qualities.

Can’t sleep? Bedtime Blast DIY Recipe

Standard
Recipe to help with improving sleep patterns

Bedtime Blast

Do you have trouble sleeping all night long or having restful sleep?

Many people struggle and have irregular sleep patterns for different reasons. There are some natural things that you can do to improve your sleep patterns. First you should take a look at your daily routines and your routines as you prepare for sleep.  You may not realize that what you do to prepare for sleep can affect how well you will rest.  If you don’t not have a good bed time routine consider some type of winding down activity like taking a warm bath, reading quietly, listening to relaxing music, exercising, spending quiet time in prayer closet.

Another area to look at deals with your diet. Sometimes the type of foods that you intake before bedtime can affect how well you sleep at night. If you struggle with upset stomach or other medical issues you have to be aware of how your eating habits can affect your body ability to function properly and prevent you from having discomfort which may cause you to wake up during the night due to heart burn, nausea or abdominal pain. I have found a lot of health benefits from using my nutribullet to make healthy natural drinks / smoothies and I will share a recipe with you that is focused on helping you sleep( see recipe above)

To purchase nutribullet visit there website www.nutribullet.com/ and take charge of your life!

* disclaimer: these are my personal viewpoints. Before any changes in your diet consult your primary care physician if you have questions or concerns.
