Super busy lives mean many of us shy away from cooking. Juggling to-do lists, demanding jobs, children’s busy schedules and perhaps less-than-stellar skills in the kitchen, cooking seems to slide way down on our list of priorities.

My lofty goal involves shifting people’s perception about working with food and creating a meal. We have raised a generation who don’t know how to cook and live instead on processed or fast foods. And quite frankly, it’s killing us.

The Benefits of Flax Seed Oil

FlaxSeedFlax is beneficial for preventing heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis   diabetes, breast cancer and a variety of other health conditions.

Flaxseed also contains a group of chemicals called lignans that may play a role in the prevention of cancer. Lignans are an estrogen-like chemicals and also act as antioxidants.

Helps in the prevention of coronary Heart disease in many ways:

  • Research suggests that plant omega-3s help the cardiovascular system through several different mechanisms, including anti-inflammatory action and normalizing the heartbeat.
  • significant blood pressure-lowering effects of flaxseed.
  • omega-3s help prevent hardening of the arteries and keep plaque from being deposited in the arteries partly by keeping white blood cells from sticking to the blood vessels’ inner linings.
  • Eating flaxseed daily may also help your cholesterol levels. The level of LDL or “bad” cholesterol in the bloodstream has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

Renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils, Frankincense has extraordinary internal and external health benefits. In addition to its notoriety in the New Testament, the Babylonians and Assyrians would burn Frankincense in religious ceremonies and the ancient Egyptians used Frankincense resin for everything from perfume to salves for skin ailments. This centuries–old knowledge contributes to the modern uses of Frankincense today.

Why the feet?

why the feet?Have you ever wondered why the feet are the most often suggested area of the body to apply essential oils?

The feet are the second fastest area of the body to absorb oils because of the large pores. Other quick absorbing areas include behind the ears and on the wrists.

It is also recommended to apply essential oils to the acupressure point on the feet.

Reflexology is thousands of years old practice of massaging acupressure points on the feet or hands to relieve stress, illness, pain, and to stimulate mental, emotional, physical and healing and well-being in all body systems. Reflexology is said to build resistance to stress, and rejuvenates by stimulating meridians, circulation, nerve systems, and detoxing.

Each area of the foot has energy channels (called meridians) to a particular body organ system. Rubbing stimulates that area.

Vitamin B12 & Folic Acid

legumes & greensVitamin B-12 – also called cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood.
Pernicious Anemia, which is an autoimmune disease, lack of intrinsic factor in the stomach to make Vitamin B12.
Increasing intake of Vitamin B12 may help elderly individuals by protecting against brain atrophy or shrinkage associated with Alzheimer’s disease and impaired cognitive function.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can potentially cause severe and irreversible damage, especially to the brain and nervous system. At levels only slightly lower than normal, a range of symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and poor memory may be experienced. Vitamin B12 deficiency can also cause symptoms of mania and psychosis.

Folic Acid – also known as folate – The human body needs folate to synthesize DNA, repair DNA. It is especially important in aiding rapid cell division and growth, such as in infancy and pregnancy. Children and adults both require folic acid to produce healthy red blood cells and prevent anemia.
Common symptoms of folate deficiency include diarrhea, macrocytic anemia with weakness or shortness of breath, nerve damage with weakness and limb numbness (peripheral neuropathy), pregnancy complications, mental confusion, forgetfulness or other cognitive declines, mental depression, sore or swollen tongue, peptic or mouth ulcers, headaches, heart palpitations, irritability, and behavioral disorders. Low levels of folate can also lead to homocysteine accumulation. DNA synthesis and repair are impaired and this could lead to cancer development.
