  1. Judean Date Palm was miraculously brought back to life following the chance discovery of seeds in the 2,000-year-old ruins of Masada, the male date palm tree named Methuselah, the only one of his kind, has become a father.

For thousands of years, the date palm was a staple crop in the Kingdom of Judea, as it was a source of food, shelter and shade.  Thick forests of the palms towering up to 80 feet and spreading for 7 miles covered the Jordan River valley from the Sea of Galilee in the north to the shores of the Dead Sea in the south.

So valued was the tree that it became a recognized as a symbol of good fortune in Judea.  It is chronicled in the Bible, Quran and ancient literature for its diverse powers, from an aphrodisiac to a contraceptive, and as a cure for a wide range of diseases including cancer, malaria and toothache.

2. Raynaud’s disease is a condition that turns your fingers white or blue when you are cold. Your body overreact to cold temperatures and restricts blood flow to the extremities. Apparently smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin narrow, limiting blood circulation to affected areas

3. According to studies too much exercise is not healthy. Your body’s Homeostasis (regulators that keep the composition of the extracellular fluids constant) collapses when you over do exercise. Moderation is important. Stress on the body produces large amounts of free radicals that causes stress like sore or strained muscles. So overdoing exercise has no health benefits.  Source: The Enzyme Factor. (Excellent book – worth getting)

4. Water the giver of life – Our bodies are composed of nearly 90 percent waters using pure water for drinking and bathing is essential to our health. More than 700 pollutants most of them carcinogens often found in drinking water from municipal sources and rural wells. The exposure to our skin is significant and goes unrecognized as a health threat . Filtered water is the safest way to go. It can be a little pricy but it is the only way to give your family the highest quality water.

5. I know it’s almost winter here in the States but it will be summer sometime somewhere and there will be bugs and mosquitos. Now as you know repellents contain dangerous chemicals. It has been shown that prescription drugs in you system can combine with other compounds such as what you put on your skin and can cause brain cell death and other neurotic reactions including seizures. A natural substance which I use daily in my oil burner (it is also called Indian oil of verbena) is a great choice to keep the bugs away. You will find it at your health food store.

This is what happens to your body when you eat Pink Himalayan Salt!

This is what happens to your body when you eat Pink Himalayan Salt!

Pink salt is a salt that is found in the Himalayan mountains in a range stretching across Asia through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India.

Why is it pink?
The different hues of pink, red, and white are an indication of the salt’s rich and varying mineral and energy-rich iron content. Pink Himalayan crystal salt contains all of the 84 elements found in your body, just to name a few: sodium chloride, sulphate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

So, why should I use this instead of my normal salt?
Some of the benefits that you can expect by consuming this salt in place of regular table salt include:
Aiding in vascular health
Supporting healthy lungs and respiratory function
Promoting a stable pH balance within the cells
Reducing the signs of aging
Promoting healthy sleep patterns
Strengthen bones
Lowers blood pressure
Improves circulation
Detoxifying the body of heavy metals
Promote healthy pH balance in your cells
Regulate the water content throughout your body
Iodine- Natural salts, like pink salt, are rich in iodine. This means that it does not need to be artificially added in.
Less sodium- Yes, I know, that sounds strange, but Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals. They are formed naturally in the earth made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals like sulphate, bicarbonate, bromide, and strontium.

Himalayan salt can:
Create an electrolyte balance
Increase hydration
Prevent muscle cramping
Balance the Ph (alkaline/acidity) and help acid reflux.

Pink salt – Why it is better than table salt:

Conventional table salt is completely stripped of a good majority of its minerals with the exception of sodium and chloride. It is bleached, cleaned with chemicals and then heated to an extremely high temperature. Then the iodine is added in that is almost always synthetic that is quite difficult for our bodies to take in. Many studies have shown that for each gram of table salt consumed the body cannot process, your body will use 20 times the amount of cellular water to neutralize the amount of sodium chloride that is presented.

The best part is…
Versatility! That’s right, it can be used for more than just its food seasoning properties.
Air Purifier- crystal rock lamps make wonderful air-purifiers!
Bathing- throw a handful into the bath tub for a detoxifying Himalayan salt bath. The replenishing nutrients help to stimulate circulation and soothe sore muscles.
Decoration- they make lovely food decoration; you can also buy salt slabs to present your food on as well as lamps and holders!

Believe me, once you make this investment you will never go back!

4. The ‘head brain’ works things out on a logical basis, while the ‘gut brain’ links us with our emotional and instinctive side. In my personal view women have a much superior ‘gut brain’ than men as I believe women are far more instinctive than men. ‘Just saying’

5. Raisins, bananas, dates and grapes contain fast-releasing sugars, whereas berries, cherries and plums release their sugars slowly, thereby avoiding spikes.
