Calm Nerves, Fight Insomnia, Reduce Anxiety and Heal Depression with Passion Flower


Anxiety and Depression are two of the most common mental health concerns in our society.
Passiflora more commonly known as Passion Flower Nutritional Herbology has historically been used as a sedative known for its calming and relaxing properties.
It is used primarily on the nervous system, particularly for anxiety, depression, panic and worry.
Passion Flower soothes the nervous system enabling the users to have sound sleep.
Passion Flower has been used as a sedative to aid in the treatment of insomnia. Dried Passion Flower can also be used in herb pillows or sprinkled in a bath to help reduce depression, anxiety and stress. The stems are even eaten raw by adding it to salads.
Passion Flower is commonly sold as a tea in a dried form, it can be made as a tasty tea for truly holistic healing or strong decoction, some people have even been known to smoke it.
Additionally you can get Passion Flower in capsules or tablets.
Passion Flower exerts its calming effect by increasing the release of a particular neurotransmitter in the brain. Basically, some of the active phytochemicals in Passion Flower promote the release of GABA.
GABA or Gamma Aminobutyric Acid is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.
This neurotransmitter lowers neuronal activity in certain brain cells.
When there is excessive brain activity, its presence produces calmness. Considered vital for calming stress responses.
This action has a quieting effect in the central nervous system and it reduces anxiety and relieves insomnia.
Popularly referred to as the body’s natural tranquiliser, frequently identified as the calming neurotransmitter).
Normally, the brain pumps out all the GABA we need. Unfortunately, due to a poor diet, exposure to environmental toxins, or other factors, levels of GABA may become depleted. Too little of this important compound may result in anxiety, irritability, and insomnia. A deficiency of GABA has also been linked to depression.
Do you have acute anxiety or panic attacks, or difficulty sleeping through the night or even the inability to experience pleasure in activities that normally produce it? If so, you may very well be suffering GABA deficiency symptoms.
Low levels of GABA can directly affect a person’s capability in handling stresses that are brought about on a day to day basis. So generally, deficient GABA levels can negatively affect a person’s life and performance.
GABA is manufactured in the body from another amino acid, glutamic acid.
GABA essentially acts as a tranquilizer in the body, and its effects are comparable to prescription drugs such as Valium and other tranquilizers.
Because GABA helps to subdue the firing of nerve cells in the brain, it may be useful for treatment of disorders thought to be linked to over stimulation of the brain’s motor centers, such as epilepsy and attention deficit disorder.
Outside the central nervous system, GABA is also responsible for regulating muscle tone. Therefore, increased secretion of GABA can also help relax the muscles. This calming effect on the muscles is the reason why passion flower is used in the treatment of seizures and epilepsy.
In homeopathic medicine Passion Flower was used to treat epilepsy.
GABA itself does not cause drowsiness. Instead, by easing anxiety, it simply makes it easier to fall asleep. Some research indicates that the popular insomnia-fighting herb, valerian, boosts GABA levels too. When specifically treating sleep disorders, some people like to rotate GABA with Valerian or Melatonin, the popular Hormone-based sleep supplement.

In a study participates with a sleep disorder ingested a mug of Passion Flower Tea for 1 week and noted their results. The conclusion was that it helped their sleeping.

You should consult with a qualified healthcare provider before making decisions about using herbal therapies for health conditions.

Shed the Pounds Natural Weight Loss Eating Fish – There is nothing fishy about it!


If you want to lose weight you should start by avoiding sugar and starch like bread.
Fish is a wonderful food for dieters. It’s low in calories, low in saturated fat, and will strengthens the overall condition of the body.
If you want to adopt a really good eating habit, eat regular fish. By substituting fish for chicken or beef two to three times per week, you’ll avoid storing an excess 300 calories.
Less fat means fewer calories – There is nothing fishy about it!
Additionally fish is high in protein high protein diets often tend to be lower in calories which regardless of the diet composition will result in weight loss.
Protein makes people feel fuller and more satisfied for a longer period of time compared to carbohydrates or fat.
Calories in Fish may vary whether it’s marinated, baked, grilled or smoked.
Salmon is an ideal nutritional source of protein for those who are watching their weight or trying to drop some pounds. It might even be considered a weight-loss superfood. Additionally, the Vitamin D content present abundantly in salmon is another reason for its effectiveness for weight loss in a sustainable and healthy manner. Additionally, vitamin D helps in selective burning of calories, it serves to burn the unwanted fat tissues. It is a known fact that most adults suffer from the deficiency of Vitamin D in their diet,

Omega-3 fatty acids do actually promote weight loss in several ways. They help the insulin in your body work better and decrease insulin resistance.
They improve blood sugar control, which helps reduce food cravings and overeating. Omega-3s help your body to burn off calories before they get stored as fat.
The process of metabolism has been the centre of all discussions relating to weight loss. This particular topic of fish oil and weight loss is no different. For many years now fish oil is being considered as a great way to keep a check on the fat content in the body. Fish oil has Docosahexaenoic acid, known as DHA. What DHA does is pretty interesting; this chemical can actually help the body burn more fat. In other words DHA provides the necessary incentive to the process of metabolism thereby making it use more calories to burn fat in the body. This results in quick weight loss and also helps in fighting lethargy or physical inactivity. The process of metabolism is carried forward by certain enzymes; fish oil for weight loss also helps in activating these enzymes.
The highest concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids are found in cold water fish, such as sardines, salmon, herring, tuna, cod, mackerel, halibut, and shark. These fatty acids are also found in lower concentrations in plant foods such as Flaxseed, Walnuts, Great Northern beans, kidney beans, Navy beans, and Soybeans. Some registered dietitians recommend eating a diet rich in fish with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids or eating 1 or 2 teaspoons of flaxseed every day.
So, no more excuses! You can make easy switches to your diet today to help you eat healthier and lose weight.

Remember : Low carb AND low fat = starvation
Avoiding both carbs and fat results in hunger, cravings and fatigue. Sooner or later people can’t stand it and give up. The solution is to eat more natural fat until you feel satisfied.

Burn a minimum of 1,000 calories in aerobic exercise per week. This is equivalent to walking about ten miles over one week. You can spread it out into four 2.5 mile walks per week or any other combination you prefer. You can walk at any speed you like, but brisk walking is better.

Be Patient
It’s common to lose 2-6 pounds (1-3 kg) within the first week on a strict low carb diet, and then on average about one pound (0.5 kg) per week as long as you have a lot of weight remaining to lose. This translates into about 50 pounds (25 kilos) per year.
Every 5 pounds of fat loss roughly equals 1 inch lost around the waist (1 kilo = 1 cm).

Using such a fish weight loss plan may not suit every one, and it is necessary to keep your self hydrated while using this fish diet plan.

High protein diets do promote weight loss but caution is advised. Consult your dietitian or healthcare provider.

Reduce Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia and Nervousness with Magnesium


After Oxygen, water, and basic food, Magnesium may be the most important element needed by our bodies.
Magnesium,(Mg), is a vital mineral for human nutrition, its perhaps one of the most important natural anxiety remedies because of its effectiveness, record of safe use, availability and value. Zinc, Calcium, and Magnesium are three of the most important minerals essential for good health. Magnesium and Calcium are very similar in their chemistry, but biologically, these two elements function and react very differently.
Only 1% of the Magnesium in your body is stored in your blood and the majority of it is stored in your bones.
Magnesium is mostly ignored because it is not a drug, even though in many cases it is more POWERFUL then drugs.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, and it’s vital for good health. It’s needed for over 300 biochemical reactions. Magnesium acts as a natural tranquilizeris and is a antidote to stress. It is the most powerful relaxant mineral available and it can improve sleep. Magnesium is a calming mineral that nourishes the nervous system, helps prevent anxiety, fear, nervousness, restlessness and irritability. Also helping calm those under severe stress. Magnesium is also very protective of the heart and arteries; again, this is important if you suffer from anxiety or panic attacks.
Magnesium-deficiency causes N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) coupled calcium channels to be biased towards opening, causing neuronal injury and neurological dysfunction, which may appear to humans as major depression. Some scientists suggest that most cases of depression is a result of a Magnesium deficiency. Too much coffee, fizzy drinks, salt, or alcohol, as well as heavy menstrual periods, excessive sweating, and prolonged stress can also lower Magnesium levels.
Before you rush to the doctor to get the Insomnia medications you may want to look at Magnesium, it not only helps you fall asleep but it can also relaxes your muscles.
Magnesium is the anti-stress mineral and is known to alleviate stress. Magnesium is also known to cure severe forms of psychiatric dysfunctions including depression, anxiety and insomnia something we all need in these tough and stressful economic times.
Symptoms of Magnesium deficiency include paranoia, anger, apprehension, anxious behaviour, confusion, depression, hyperemotionality, insomnia, paranoia, nervousness and nervous fits to name a few.
Because Anxiety and Depression can be so debilitating, even life-threatening, it’s understandable that doctors feel strong measures are required to combat it, but these strong measures don’t always work. The alternative that many doctors are missing is the nutrient connection. Magnesium deficiency is a potential cause for every type of depression. Inadequate Magnesium appears to reduce serotonin levels and antidepressants have been shown to raise brain Magnesium. A 2008 study found that Magnesium was as effective as the tricyclic antidepressants in treating depression among people with diabetes.

An average diet usually supplies about 120mg of magnesium per 1,000 calories, resulting in an estimated daily intake of about 250mg.
The Daily Allowance (RDA) for Magnesium ranges between 240 mg to 420 mg. Most people benefit from 400mg -1000mg a day. Studies show that as much as 3 times this amount may be needed by the general population. A person’s need for Magnesium increases during pregnancy, recovery from surgery and illnesses, and athletic training.

Herbs that have the most Magnesium and are the healthiest for you include: Coriander Leaf, Dried Basil, Dried, Dried Dill, Liquorice, Nettle, Parsley, Peppermint leaves, Sage, Spearmint, Thyme and White Willow Bark.

Eat Magnesium rich food. Food rich in Magnesium is easy to find at your local grocery store. The top ten foods sources highest in Magnesium are :


2.Dark Leafy Greens such as Spinach (Vegetables are especially good if you are watching your weight because you can ingest a lot of magnesium for a relatively small number of calories).

3.Cashews, Brazil nuts, Peanuts etc

4.Cocoa / Dark Chocolate

5.Brown rice


7.Bran breakfast cereal

8.Baked Beans



Other food include : Bananas, Broccoli, Kidney Beans, Oatmeal, Potato, Raisins, Shredded Wheat and Wholemeal Bread.

Magnesium is easily absorbed through the skin. Epsom salt is scientifically known as Magnesium Sulfate (MgSO4). It is known for its high level of Magnesium. Even bathing in Epsom Salts will result in Magnesium levels rising in your body.

Although Magnesium is safe please be sure to check with your health care provider before taking Magnesium supplements.

Alternative Treatments for Bacterial Vaginosis and Vaginal Odour


The smell of a healthy vagina is mild, slightly pungent with a pleasant and musky aroma. It definitely does not smell like a dead fish rotting or have a strong foul odor.
Poor hygiene can also be a cause of bad vaginal odor in certain women.
Bacterial vaginosis, or BV, is typically the cause of vaginal odour. Bacterial Vaginosis is a very common vaginal infection. It occurs when bacteria that normally exist in small numbers in the vagina multiply rapidly. Even though antibiotic medication is effective in up to 90% of cases, 25% of women will develop BV again within four weeks.

Listed below are some effective home remedies for feminine vaginal odour:

Remove sugar from your diet! Avoid all sugar until the active infection passes plus two weeks longer. After this, reduce your overall sugar intake by less than one-third what you are currently eating. This includes the sugar that is found in processed foods.

Clove Oil / Clove Tea
In a clinical trial, eugenol (present in clove tree oil) was as effective as prescription medicines used in the treatment of bacterial vaginosis and vaginal candidiasis.
Diluted Clove Oil with water or Clove Tea can be used as a vaginal rinse or add five drops of Clove Oil to your bath.

Please DO NOT use concentrated essential Clove oil directly on the vaginal area as it may burn!!!

Garlic as a Natural Treatment for Vaginal Odour: It is suggested that the anti-fungal property of garlic can check yeast infection, thereby treating vaginal odour. One might make a paste of fresh garlic and apply it to the vaginal area. Alternately, one may wrap some fresh garlic in cheesecloth, tie it and insert it into the vagina for some time. It is truly effective or you can say magical remedy for your vaginal infection.

Tea Tree Oil
In my opinion this is one of the strongest natural cures for BV.
Tea Tree Oil as a Natural Cure for Vaginal Odour: Experts believe that the antifungal property of tea tree oil can help in treating vaginal odour. Mix 2-3 tbsp tree tea oil in a small bowl of water. Rinse your vagina with the solution. You can also try this remedy on a tampon.

To cure bacterial vaginosis take 1 teaspoon of dried tracheal and soak it into 1 cup of hot water. Drink this solution like tea before bedtime.

One of my favourites. Sage has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and help to fight infections. Recent laboratory studies support the use of Sage to guard against infections it has demonstrated an ability to fight against several infection causing bacteria. Drinking Sage tea three times a day or rinsing the vagina with Sage tea could help against Bacterial Vaginosis and vaginal odour. To add to your bath sprinkle half a cup of Sage into a warm bath and have a long soak.
For a homebrewed Sage tea, Add two teaspoons of dried leaves to a mug of boiling water. Steep for 10 minutes, strain then drink.

Another one of my favourites. Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) is a strong killer of fungus, bacteria, mould, yeast, viruses and has potent antimicrobial properties it also relieves discharge, itching and thrush. A vaginal rinse can be made with two tablespoons of Thyme and three cups of boiling water.
Use as a vaginal rinse several times a day. You can also do this to your bath.

Eating and living with herbs can bring you a lifestyle which may be more conducive to weight loss. Instead of taking a capsule, eat a handful of fresh parsley.

Uva Ursi

If you care enough for the result, you will almost always attain it. – William James
