Use Herbs for Natural Stress Relief

Have you had it with being constantly stressed out? If you suffer from anxiety, then you know what it can do to your productivity, well-being, not to mention your mental state. While you're dealing with the causes of your stress, you can use herbal remedies to gain some short-term relief.
... The best thing you can do to deal with stress is to deal with the underlying cause of the stress, obviously. But often there is precious little to be done, especially if things are a bit outside of your control. Modern day life can certainly add a lot to family stress! In that case, it is wise to make use of the many herbs that are safe and effective for stress control.

I will only mention 3, since these are well-known and are sure to help you in numerous ways. A very good friend of mine is a natural healer and herbal therapist. She uses these on an almost daily basis in her practice. (I think her most favorite is cognac, but that is not supposed to be one of these! Really, she does use it very moderately to help very uptight men lighten up a bit.) Read more

A new study from King's College London adds more evidence that exercise is a true anti-aging formula.

"A sedentary lifestyle increases the propensity to aging-related diseases and premature death. Inactivity may diminish life expectancy not only by predisposing to aging-related diseases, but also because it may influence the aging process itself," study author Lynn F. Cherkas, of King's College London, said in a prepared statement. Read more

Vitamin D Supplements Dangerous - Sunshine UV Good

Vitamin D is protective against heart disease and cancer, but supplements may not be the answer to raising levels of the vitamin. In fact, they may possibly be dangerous, according to new research. Apparently, the best way to get your vitamin D is the natural way - sunshine.
Low blood levels of vitamin D have long been associated with disease, and the assumption has been that vitamin D supplements may protect against disease. However, this new research demonstrates that ingested vitamin D is immunosuppressive and that low blood levels of vitamin D may be actually a result of the disease process. Supplementation may make the disease worse. Read more

Whiter Teeth the Natural Way

If you've ever considered teeth whitening, you've already found out that it's expensive. Even the over-the-counter kits aren't cheap.
