Zentraveler on your health!

 

To your good health

To your good health

Volumes have been written about health, however a simple change like eating an apple a day to keep the doctor away might be just what your body needs to maintain good health.  Notice there is no saying that says drink five cokes a day plus eat a chocolate cake to get that sugar rush to invest in your health! It should say WARNING you want diabetes, clogged arteries, and tracking toward a good heart attack… then be my guest and eat fructose sugars and make the hospitals and doctors happy to treat your self inflicted diseases and line their pockets.

What is the definition of health? Health is the level of functional or metabolic  efficiency of a living organism. In humans,  it is the general condition of a persons’ mind and body, usually meaning to be free from illness, injury or pain. (as in “good health” or “healthy“)

There are many choices when it comes to health in our modern world.Most westerners simply go to the doctor as if its a car repair clinic which it definitely is not come out with a bag full of prescriptions and hope for the best.  Many others are using some of the old Chinese methods and practices of India to utilize a more natural approach to healing.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. TCM practitioners use herbal medicines and various mind and body practices, such as acupuncture and tai chi, to treat or prevent health problems. In the United States, people use TCM primarily as a complementary health approach. This outline provides a general overview of TCM .

Are these methods safe?

  • Acupuncture is generally considered safe when performed by an experienced practitioner using sterile needles. Improperly performed acupuncture can cause potentially serious side effects.
  • Tai chi and qi gong, two mind and body practices used in TCM, are generally safe.
  • Most Chinese herbal products are safe however like anything else there have been reports of Chinese herbal products being contaminated with drugs, toxins, or heavy metals or not containing the listed ingredients. Is best to check with your herbal doctor.

TCM encompasses many different practices, including acupuncture, moxibustion (burning an herb above the skin to apply heat to acupuncture points), Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese therapeuticmassage), dietary therapy, and tai chi and qi gong (practices that combine specific movements or postures, coordinated breathing, and mental focus). TCM is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 2,500 years. Traditional systems of medicine also exist in other East and South Asian countries, including Japan (where the traditional herbal medicine is called Kampo) and Korea. Some of these systems have been influenced by TCM and are similar to it in some ways, but each has developed distinctive features of its own.

 

So there you have it! If you are feeling sick, use a saltwater gargle three times a day, eat steaming bowls of homemade chicken soup, drink tonic of lemon juice and honey and get plenty of rest or go to the doctors and pharmacy and pop plenty of antibiotics (which your system is immune to anyway) and see what happens.  As a final note you could also seek out a naturalist who may just have the natural herb to cure what ails you!

Zentraveler on heal thyself with Cosmic Energy.

Cosmic Energy

Cosmic Energy

We all have the capacity to look within and find the light energy that can eradicate any disease. The problem we have… we are living in an external world full of stimuli and we keep searching outside for the answers. If we could only have that new house, that new car, the latest electronic gadget…then all of our problems would be solved. Not so fast grasshopper! Some of the most miserable people in the world are rich beyond description with money and poorer than a church mouse on understanding of Cosmic Energy.

They did a study on the top 20 happiest people in the world and everyone was of modest means, but each had developed an attitude: Of course I’m happy, I have food on the table and fully understand my purpose here on earth. They developed a high level of consciousness and thought it was rather silly to worry about the rat race and earthy things. In essence they were above the noise and the fray of a modern society.

I have good news and bad news! The bad news… even when you are a billionaire and you are stricken with a deadly disease…all of the money in the world isn’t going to make much difference. The good news is your amazing machinery that is part of your body has the possibility of healing every disease.

Your cells are the key. When they turn rogue they can act like Pack-Man and destroy everything in your body until you die. The trick is to find a way to reverse this situation.

The answer my friend is not written in the wind. The answer is to align yourself with positive energy… which you can do yourself and then let the Cosmos Energy which is there for every living thing do its thing. THAT’S ALL FOLKS…ALLOW THE COSMIC ENERGY TO HEAL THYSELF.

So there you have it! Why didn’t they teach the importance of Cosmic Energy and its relation to good health in our schools? Don’t be so glib grasshopper! Can you imagine how many doctors, druggists, and health care providers, would be unemployed if they could simply tap into the Universes Cosmic Energy!

QUOTE:”People with small minds talk about other people. People with average minds talk about events. People with great minds talk about ideas”

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: Out of the great Power all atomic energy is throbbing, manifesting and sustaining every cell of the physical universe. As moving pictures are sustained by a beam of light coming from the projection booth of a movie house, so are all of us sustained by the cosmic beam, the divine light pouring from the projection of the booth of eternity.SOURCE:TIMES OF INDIA

THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE:Your new understanding of COSMIC ENERGY!

ZENTRAVELER SAYS: Use COSMIC ENERGY to rid yourself of all diseases! That’s a POWERFUL STATEMENT. Yes it is.

From here to Infinity is a relatively short ride! The next leg takes eons and eons as you fly through the Barycentric Dynamical Time Zone! …and on and on and on.

Zentraveler on health benefits of black tea!

Black Tea

Over the years black tea has been neglected as green tea gets all of the press and attention, however black tea has many excellent health benefits and should be seriously considered as an addition to your daily drink regimen.

Black tea, known to the Chinese as red tea, is the most common product of the tea bush Camellia sinensis, produced by encouraging freshly picked tea leaves to darken with large amount of cellular oxidation. It is the same plant as green and oolong tea, but is left to oxidize longer than either of these and so has a different, generally stronger flavor and different health benefits. Black tea stores better than other types of tea and can keep its flavor for several years. Whole leaf black tea is considered the best quality, whereas broken leaves are often used in tea bags. Black tea is often mixed with other ingredients such as bergamot (orange) oil to create Earl Grey tea, or cinnamon and other spices to create chai tea. In many cultures, black tea is taken with milk, lemon and/or sugar or sweetener as well.

Black tea contains caffeine. It has very few to no calories or nutrients, although it does contain antioxidants. Black tea should be steeped in just boiled water. While the tea in tea bags usually has a high surface area and should only be steeped for a couple of minutes, whole leaf tea can be steeped for 5 minutes without turning bitter. Many cultures have significant rituals surrounding the brewing and serving of tea.

Black tea has many health benefits, most of them stemming from the polyphenols it contains, which are a type of antioxidant. Antioxidants are protective chemicals which prevent free radicals from damaging the body. Black tea has been shown to reduce some symptoms of heart disease and may even help to keep blood cholesterol levels from rising.

Black tea also helps to boost the immune system, as well as lower the chances of dementia in later life. Drinking black tea may give a short mental boost by increasing alpha brain-wave activity, as well as lowering the production of the stress hormone cortisol. Elevated levels of cortisol are linked to the eventual development of osteoporosis. Black tea can also help to reduce bad breath and tooth decay.

Research has shown a long-term study by the Netherlands National Institute of Public Health and the Environment found a correlation between regular consumption of black tea and reduced risk of stroke. Researchers looked at data from a study examining the health benefits of foods that are high in flavonoids – phytonutrients with antioxidant benefits. While some of the flavonoids were obtained from fruits and vegetables, seventy percent came from black tea. The study looked at 552 men over a 15 year period. Researchers concluded that the flavonoids in black tea helped reduce the production of LDL – the “bad” cholesterol that can lead to stroke and heart attacks.

Men who drank over four cups of black tea per day had a significantly lower risk of stroke than men who drank only two to three cups per day. A separate study by Dr. Joseph Vita at Boston’s School of Medicine supported these results. For four months, sixty-six men drank four cups of either black tea or a placebo daily. Dr. Vita concluded that drinking black tea can help reverse an abnormal functioning of the blood vessels that can contribute to stroke or heart attack. Furthermore, improvement in the functioning of the blood vessels was visible within two hours of drinking just one cup of black tea.

Finally, a study of over 3,000 adults in Saudi Arabia – where black tea is favored over green – found that regular consumption of the dark brew can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by fifty percent.

QUOTE: Ever since tea was first discovered, its cultivation and consumption have been encouraged because of its apparent ability to ward off disease, strengthen powers of concentration, cleanse the body, and aid digestion. Legends of its medicinal properties reached Europe and the New World from China, intriguing the Western consumer, and now, centuries later, modern research has begun to confirm many of those early beliefs. —JANE PETTIGREW

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW:While references to tea in Chinese literature go back approximately 5,000 years, the origin of tea’s use as a beverage is unclear. Ancient folklore places the creation of the brew at 2737 BC, when a camellia blossom drifted into a cup of boiled drinking water belonging to Emperor Shen Nung. However, most scholars credit a reference found in Erh Ya, an ancient Chinese dictionary, dated about 350 BC.

THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE:Tea Leaves: Write your own destiny grasshopper…what are you waiting for?

ZENTRAVELER SAYS:Drink several cups of delicious Black tea daily to reduce the risk of stroke, dementia, and coronary heart disease.

QUOTE: “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” -Thomas Edison, Inventor

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: Good health is possible!

First, you must understand that our bodies have the natural blueprint for good health. We fall ill mainly because our modern way of living not only denies our bodies the opportunity to exercise that blueprint, it takes things to the other extreme and hammers them daily with harmful lifestyles, toxins and poisons.

The very good news is, you CAN do something about it. There exist simple, effective, natural and often inexpensive steps we can take to reverse disease-creating conditions and give our health a mighty boost.

There is one big catch though – to be truly healthy, you MUST take personal responsibility. Yes, you are responsible for your own health. Not your doctor, not your parents, not your boss, not even your spouse – only YOU! And you must be committed to your new life, because so much of the modern way of living creates disease and NOT health.

Our body needs more than just the right and healthy fuel to continue to perform efficiently. It needs exercise, proper diet and supplementation as we grow older. In addition to Sambong natural herbs the natural products from Herbalife offer great nutrition and have a great weight loss track record. The Herbalife research team recently won the nobel prize for nutrition and is currently available in over 70 countries.

Zentraveler on benefits of Oregano!

Oregano Herb Flower

Oregano means “mountain joy” and is a wonderfully aromatic, flavorful herb popularly used in Spanish and Mediterranean cooking. Oregano adds depth and savor to any dish, but goes particularly well with tomatoes, eggplant, fish, chicken and any meat. For an extra zest sprinkle oregano in your scrambled eggs and salad dressings.

Oregano oil is extracted from the Oregano plant. It contains two different compounds that work together to create the healing effect; carvacrol and thymol. It is an antiseptic, an antifungal, and an antioxidant. Oregano is not used as a seasoning for food in the Philippines but is considered a medicinal plant.

Oregano, the seasoning, can be found in any grocery store however, this is not the Oregano that you are searching for. If you want the Oregano oil health benefits you will need to buy the concentrated oil that is found in health food stores. Before you purchase the oil, make sure that the Oregano oil is from Origanum vulgare and has at least a 70% concentrate.

Oregano Oil Health Benefits: An upset stomach may be brushed off as indigestion when it could be caused by bacteria. The bacteria may be treated with oregano oil. Put a few drops into a glass of juice and drink it. With the help of carvacrol and thymol in oil of oregano, you can relieve the symptoms of joint pain and stiffness. Oil of Oregano has recently been found to be more effective in killing MRSA infections than the drugs used in the past.

A small drop of oregano oil on an ailing tooth can also relieve toothache pain. Oregano oil is great for all different types of skin conditions. Skin infections are easy to get, but hard to get rid of. The oil can be combined with water and then placed directly on the infection, where it will begin working immediately to kill the infection. Read the bottle of Oregano oil first before using. Most of these oils require that you mix it with coconut oil, olive oil, or water before you apply it to the infected area. When used correctly you can enjoy the many Oregano oil health benefits from one bottle.

Cold season can be rough on anyone. You get sick and it seems like it takes a long time before you are able to get over it. People usually reach for vitamin C in order to ward off cold symptoms, but this year put Oregano oil in your cabinet and be prepared for the next cold that comes your way. For sinus congestion, you can add as little as three drops of the oil into your glass of juice, one time a day for up to five days and it will help reduce the symptoms associated with the congestion.

Within a few hours of adding three drops of Oregano oil to your juice you can feel the symptoms of a cold or sore throat begin to weaken as the oil kicks in. It’s best if you only use the oil for a total of five days.
Oregano oil has a sedative effect and can be used to induce sleep when insomnia is a problem. It should not be used in large quantities for this purpose. It only takes a little bit. Keep a bottle of this oil in your medicine cabinet. You will be glad you did when you need one or more of oregano oil health benefits. It is also available in soft gels.

Zentraveler on the Calamansi Fruit!

Calamansi Fruit


Calamansi (Citrofortunella microcarpa – is a small green citrus fruit that is native to the Philippines. It is also known as calamondin, Panama orange or acid orange. It is very sour hence its popularity as souring agent for sinigang and sawsawan (dipping sauces). It is also one of the more common backyard trees in the Philippines. It goes well with soy sauce and lemongrass for marinating meats and fishes for grills. It is an excellent deodorizer too, after handling fish just rub calamansi juice on your hands and the fishy smell vanishes. It is also incorporated in soaps and lotions and shampoos.

The first time I encountered Calmansi was in my travels to Bacolod, Negroes, Philippines. As I was walking toward my room an elderly distinguished man invited me to have a drink. Joining him at his outdoor table for a nitecap he eloquently boasted that calamansi makes the best rum drink mixer in the world. Decked in a pinstripe dress shirt and straw hat he said he was originally from London, England and retired here to the Philippines several years ago. He volunteered his age at 95 and said there is something in this calmansi that cannot be explained. As I drifted off to sleep I thought to myself maybe this old coger has discovered the real fountain of youth.

Calamansi Juice

Calamansi citrus has found several medicinal uses. When rubbed on insect bites, the juice will relieve the itching and reduce the irritation. It can also be used as a natural acne medicine or taken orally as cough medicine (often mixed with green tea), and is a natural anti-inflammatory.

For problems with constipation the juice is warmed and diluted with water. It bleaches freckles and helps to clear up acne vulgaris and pruritus vulvae. In Malaysia, it is used as an antidote for poison, and a poultice of pandanus leaves mixed with salt and the juice of citrus microcarpa, can be used to treat abscesses. It is combined with pepper to help expel phlegm. Its root is used in the Philippines at childbirth.

If you require medical or other assistance Zentraveler strongly encourages users to consult with a qualified health care professional.

So there you have it! You should incorporate calamansi citrus fruit into your morning tonic drinks, salads and fishes to add zest to your life.

Calamansi for Good Health

QUOTE: A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy. (Albert Einstein)

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: While many growers see the calamansi as tiny decorative oranges and mostly ornamental, they are finding that the trees are problem free and easy to cultivate both indoors and out. They thrive inside the house in containers, as well as planted in the ground in tropical areas and zones with only occasional mild frosts. Calamansi is the result of a rare natural cross between two closely related genera, the Citrus and the Fortunella, and carries the characteristics of both the parents. The Fortunella parent, Kumquat, lends a dense shrubby habitat, small leaves and a hardy constitution, whereas the Citrus reticulata, Mandarin Orange, lends thorns, tasty fruit and ease of peeling. So the Calamansi has small, easy to peel fruit with the sour acid flavor.

THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE:Calmansi seeds! You can start your own calamansi tree in a garden pot and let it grow. Bring it indoors for cold climates and plant in your yard for a great addition to your gourmet kitchen.

ZENTRAVELER SAYS: Be creative and enjoy new drinks and seasonings by adding Calamansi to your daily routine.

Zentraveler on natural herb Lemongrass!

Lemongrass Herb Garden

Lemongrass very pretty! Sounds like a song or a folk singers group. Lemongrass is the name of many restaurants throughout Asia and conjures up a good feeling about this natural herb. Lemongrass smells good, has a host of health benefits, adds flavor to your fish and chicken dishes, makes a great tonic drink, and a wonderful herbal tea.

Lemon grass is an essential ingredient in Thai and Indonesian cooking. Lemon grass grows wild in Indonesia, Indochina, and tropical Australia, and has been cultivated in Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka as a culinary herb and in India as a medicinal herb for thousands of years. It was considered by Paracelsus to be a cure-all and was his favorite and most revered herb. Traditional Chinese medicine has used it to relieve headaches and abdominal pain. Traditional Brazilian medicine makes great use of lemongrass as a sedative, an analgesic, and to relieve spasms and muscle cramps.

As a medicinal herb, lemon grass is mildly diuretic and a stimulant tonic. The herb promotes digestion of fats, and in Ayurvedic medicine a preparation of lemon grass with pepper has been used for relief of menstrual troubles and nausea. The herb stimulates perspiration, cooling the body in summer and lowering fevers any time of year. Lemon grass is well-known a mild insect repellent (citronella) and the essential oil is used in perfumery. A study in 1988 found significant antimicrobial activity in fighting several human pathogens such as E.coli and Staphylococcus aureus. It has also been used externally for treatment of lice, ringworm, and scabies

So there you have it! Lemongrass is easy to grow and makes a great addition to your herb garden. How cool is that to pick the lower stems, boil them in a pot, strain the lemongrass and pour into a cup for your morning tea. Just add honey! What a great way to start the day by using one of natures gifts from the gods.

QUOTE:”Tea and Water give each other life,” the Professor was saying. “The tea is still alive. This tea has tea and water vitality,” he added, “…Afterwards, the taste still happens… It rises like velvet… It is a performance.”
-Jason Goodwin, The Gunpowder Gardens

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW:Herbal tea has been imbibed nearly as long as written history extends. Also known as a tisane or herbal infusion, an herbal tea is simply the combination of boiling water and dried fruit, flower or herb…made from anything other than the leaves of the tea bush. The English word “tisane” originated from the Greek word “ptisane”, a drink made from pearl barley.

THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE: The opposite of save is not to save! Why not give a ten stock lemongrass gift to all of your best friends and relatives. Tis the season to be giving. Everybody should be giving. Give first then receive. That’s the way to celebrate the best season of the year. Happy Holidays from Zentraveler

ZENTRAVELER SAYS: Drink several cups of lemongrass tea for a tonic and healthy natural drink.
