Feverfew For Migraines

Who would have thought that this delicate, feathery plant Feverfew and Migraine Headaches would go hand in hand? As someone who has suffered from them I can attest to the fact that it works. That was the main reason I started growing Feverfew 12 years ago. That one little plant has now spread over many acres into at least a hundred plants. That’s what happens if it goes to seed and the wind scatters the seed.
It grows in my woods and fields where it’s on its own. I don’t water it other than rain water and no fertilizer except what is in the ground, and it flourishes. Feverfew is definitely a no maintenance herb.
Feverfew is also referred to as bachelor’s button, wild quinine, featherfoil, and flirtwort.
Feverfew is masculine and Sagittarius, its planet is Venus, its element is water, and its character is warm, drying, and bitter. Feverfew’s power is protection from colds, fevers, headaches, and accidents.

Feverfew packs a powerful punch with its medicinal properties. It’s not just a pain reducer for migraine headaches. It is an antispasmodic, anti-prostaglandin, vasodilator, laxative, emmenagogue (any drug, herb, or agent that induces or hastens menstrual flow) used to stimulate uterine contractions; relieves dizziness, brain and nerve pressure, increases fluidity of lung and bronchial tube mucus. It’s also used to help alleviate inflammation and discomfort of arthritis and insect bites; helps in relieving flatulence, as a stimulant, and a vermifuge (expels worms).

Lots of people are rushing out to buy the product as they believe it will give them better brain health, maybe even prevent some dementia illness and help to reduce inflammation. The problem is that there is a lot of research needed to prove many of the claims surrounding coconut oil, but that doesn’t mean there are no health benefits of coconut oil.

Coconut oil has for a very long time been added to cosmetic and skincare treatments. This kind of coconut oil is slightly different from the one that you buy to take internally.

Probiotic Supplements-How to Choose the Best Ones

The term probiotics’ refers to beneficial micro-organisms, normally bacteria, which live in our bodies and assist in the maintenance of health in various ways. These good’ bacteria already live in our bodies but in small numbers and hence cannot maintain a healthy numerical balance. This is because they get eliminated from the body in numerous ways. Our unhealthy living habits such as poor nutrition, stress, pathogens, sleep deprivation have an adverse effect on the beneficial bacteria. Additionally, antibiotics do not discriminate between the good and bad bacteria especially when diarrhea results from using the antibiotics. This results in the ejection of both good and bad bacteria from the intestinal tract.

The best way of ensuring a healthy balance of good bacteria and boost digestive health is to increase consumption of probiotic foods like sauerkraut, yogurt and kefir. However, if this is not possible, it is recommended that you take probiotic supplements. The ever-growing probiotic industry markets a wide range of supplements in various forms like powders, tablets, liquids and capsules. There are myriad manufacturers and copious amounts of information regarding these supplements, hence choosing the best supplement for you can be confusing.
