Cleaning your house shouldn’t compromise your or your family’s health. Take care of the environment – including the environment in your home – by using nontoxic, natural cleaners.
Here are some down-to-earth suggestions for cleaning your home naturally with basic household ingredients, for a clean, safe home that doesn’t expose your family and guests to toxic chemicals.
Baking soda: An all-purpose cleaner especially effective for cleaning glass coffee pots and glassware, and removing red-wine stains from carpeting. A paste (made with water) can shine stainless steel and silver, and remove tea stains from cups and saucers.
Make a paste with a Castile- or Vegetable-based liquid soap and a drop of essential oil (tea tree or Lavender) to clean sinks, countertops, toilets and tubs. Pour 1 cup down the sink to clear a clogged drain, followed by 3 cups of boiling water.
Boiling water: Use to flush drains and avoid clogs.
Coarse salt: Cleans copper pans and scours cookware. Sprinkle salt on fresh spills in the oven, then wipe off. Sprinkle salt on rust stains and squeeze a lime or lemon over them, let sit for several hours and wipe off.
Grapefruit seed extract: Add to water in a spray bottle for an odorless way to kill mold and mildew.
Lemon juice: Use as a bleaching agent on clothing, and to remove grease from stoves and countertops. Add 2 Tbsp lemon juice to 10 drops of (real) lemon oil and a few drops of jojoba oil to clean and polish wood furniture.
Olive oil: Use to lubricate and polish wood furniture (three parts olive oil to one part vinegar; or two parts olive oil with one part lemon juice).
Tea tree oil: Can be added to vinegar/water solutions for its anti-bacterial properties. Use it to kill mold and mildew, and on kitchen and bathroom surfaces instead of chemical products. Add 50 drops to a bucket of water to clean countertops and tile floors.
White vinegar: Cleans linoleum floors and glass (from windows to shower doors) when mixed with water and a little liquid soap (Castile or Vegetable) Cuts grease and removes stains; removes soap scum and cleans toilets (add a bit of baking soda if you like). Pour down drains once a week for anti-bacterial cleaning, and add to water in a spray bottle to kill mold and mildew.

Many people are unaware that some of the foods that we eat on regular basis can be deadly to your dog.
It’s tough to look at that pleading, furry face and resist giving our best friend some of the yummies we are eating, but, that is exactly what we need to do in order to protect him.
Here are some foods that are especially dangerous for your furbaby:

A piece of chocolate can cause seizures, coma and death. Even a small piece of chocolate is dangerous.
Anything containing caffeine can have a similar effect and be as dangerous as chocolate, and that includes coffee grounds, tea, and tea bags.
Grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure and even a single serving of raisins can kill your dog.
Excessive salt intake can also cause kidney problems.
Onions can cause anemia by destroying red blood cells while tomatoes can cause tremors and heart arrhythmias.
Tomato plants are particularly toxic to dogs.
Avocados are also highly toxic and can cause breathing difficulty and fluid accumulation around the abdomen chest and heart.
When giving your dog bones ensure that they are raw as cooked bones can splinter and damage their internal organs.
Excessive fat can cause pancreatitis, so it is not wise to feed your dog a diet of fatty foods.
Fried foods also fall into this category and are not good to retain maximum health in your dog.
Certain nuts, such as Macadamia nuts and walnuts can cause weakness and muscle tremors. Peanut butter however is generally okay provided you use the salt and sugar free peanut butter as sugar can encourage cancer growth.
The core and pits of fruits such as Apple’s cherries and peaches contain cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs and can kill them within 24-hours without warning.

If in doubt, always refrain from feeding your dog foods that you are eating and assuming that they will be okay. What is safe for humans can kill your dog within hours.

Detoxification is a process that occurs within our bodies on a natural and continuous basis. Detoxifying is the process of releasing accumulated toxins and waste products that build up throughout our system.
From birth, we are bombarded by toxins, externally from environmental sources and internally, our organs give off waste products that accumulate in our body.
Imbalanced emotions also play a part in polluting our system with excess chemicals such as free radicals, homocysteine and cortisol.
Detoxifying is, in many ways, an easy process. Our body does much of the detoxification process through urination, defecation and perspiration. As our bodies age and our immune systems weaken from illness, poor diet and/or addictive substances, we sometimes need to give our system an extra helping hand. That is why conscious detoxing is a great way back to optimum health.
For some, counting on a few cups of coffee, having a cigarette, drinking excessive alcohol or doing recreational drugs has become a familiar habit. Between all the medications, refined foods, additives, alcohol, pesticides and other chemicals we are exposed to in the environment, the ability of our systems to adapt and detoxify can become challenged.
How to Know if You Need to Detox
Symptoms such as frequent or reoccurring colds, feeling heavy, sluggish or tired, poor skin, acne or other related skin problems, allergies, a thick, coated tongue, bad breath, headache, and feelings of gas and being bloated after meals may indicate problems in the body’s functionality and it’s ability to process, digest and excrete properly. These vague symptoms that are often overlooked tend to be the results of a congested and sluggish body system.
Exposure or toxicity to food additives, solvents, pesticides, herbicides and other toxic chemicals can cause a number of psychological and neurological symptoms. Toxins produced by bacteria in the gut can be absorbed, causing significant disruption of body functions. Toxins that the body are unable to eliminate build up in the tissues, typically in our fat stores.
One of the best ways to start your detoxification is with the body’s biggest organ, the SKIN. A detox diet strengthens the organs involved in detoxification and releases stored toxins, expelling them through the organs of elimination: the skin, as well as the intestines, liver, lungs, kidneys, and lymphatic system.
Top 10 Tips for Detoxing
1. Eating a diet that focuses on fresh vegetables and fruits, legumes, nuts and seeds and whole grains are extremely important.
2. Regular exercise, which gets your body moving and sweating.
3. Quality sleep, where you do not have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep and wake feeling rested.
4. Avoiding drugs and excessive alcohol. The problem is not only illegal substances like cocaine, heroin and marijuana, but we are solicited constantly by legal substances that pollute the body such as habit forming sleeping pills, excessive antibiotics that destroy not only the bad bacteria, but the healthy bacterial flora and the constant ads for alcohol.
5. Nutritional and herbal supplements to protect and enhance liver function, the kidneys ability to process and the digestive system’s regularity,( discussed below).
6. Improving our mental/emotional process by stopping the mental chatter, approving and accepting ourselves and loosing the emotional baggage that drags us down.
7. Taking a spiritual approach by looking beyond the little things that get in the way and accepting and trusting the “Universal Power” or energy to guide you. Take a look at the big picture!
8. Decluttering the toxic waste around you including the clutter in your home/office, the friends or loved ones that poison your thoughts and actions and the environment that is making you sick.
9. Knowing that YOU are in control of your life.
10. That you have the power to do something about that will make a change.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Detoxing
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the oldest, continually practiced, and professionally administered health care system in the world. It is a documented medical system spanning over 2,500 years based on comprehensive philosophies, rational theories, clinically tested and empirically verified by over 100 generations of highly educated practitioners.
Chinese Medicine is a total system of internal medicine which is comprised of a diagnostic procedure based on signs, symptoms and treatment styles including acupuncture, herbal medicine, exercise, diet and meditation. It’s foundation is based on the principles of balance; the interdependent relationship of Yin and Yang. Through this balance, health is achieved and maintained.
Traditional Chinese Medicine detoxifies the body system through the organs, primarily:
The Lung and Large Intestine
In TCM, the lungs are an organ system that opens directly to the exterior. It’s function is to regulate and control the breath through inhalation and exhalation. Because of its opening through the nose, the lungs are easily susceptible to cold, heat, dryness, dampness, and most of all, heat and wind. This can effect the biggest organ of the body; the skin. The lung is closely related to the large intestine.
The large intestine controls the transformation of digestive wastes from liquid to solid state and transports the solids onwards and outwards. It plays a major role in the balance and purity of bodily fluids and assists the lungs in controlling the skin’s pores and perspiration. It depends on the lungs for movement via the expansion and contraction of the diaphragm, which works like a pump to give impetus to peristalsis by regulating abdominal pressure. The lungs expel toxins through breathing, especially deep breathing.
Deep breathing stimulates lymphatic flow, which eliminates toxins. The skin eliminates waste and toxins through perspiration. The colon eliminates toxins from the liver and digestive tract. The lungs are our attachment to the breath of life and the large intestines is it’s buddy. Incorporate deep breathing and exercise along with a tall glass of psyllium husk to get things moving.
The Liver and Gallbladder
In TCM, the liver is the “farmer who cultivates”. It stores blood, governs and regulates the blood, organizes the “free flow” of Qi energy to promote circulation which cultivates our emotions, soothes digestion, regulates menstruation and bile secretion.
The liver changes harmful toxins into substances, which can be eliminated safely the colon or kidneys. The liver is our master cleansing organ and the gall bladder is its mate. Enjoy a tall glass of water with a 1/2 lemon squeezed into it.
The Spleen and Stomach
In TCM, the spleen transports and transforms food and body fluids for transporting, for absorption, raises the body energy and controls the blood by keeping it in the vessels. When improper function occurs with the Spleen there is weight gain, high cholesterol, hypertension, bleeding disorders, dampness and a heavy sensation, muscle weakness and atrophy.
The blood and lymphatic system transport waste and toxins to other areas for elimination, including cellular waste. The stomach is the center of our ‘gut feelings’ our immune system center and the spleen (pancreas) is it’s associate. Eat the cleanest, purest foods, that are the least processed. Enjoy health probiotics found in yogurt and acidophilus. Avoid greasy, fried foods.
The Kidneys and Bladder
In TCM, the kidneys store our essence or the basic materials that make up our constitution and the reproductive fluids that create life. All organs are dependent on the Kidneys for proper growth, reproduction, water flow and control and the balance of “fire and water”.
The liver sends water soluble waste to the kidneys, where they are further filtered and passed through the bladder for elimination. The kidneys filter nutrients and waste from the blood. The kidneys are our major filter and the bladder is it’s friend. Boil 4 cups of water and a handful of corn silk. Drink this tea for amazing results.

Athlete’s Foot is a fungal infection of the skin also known as tinea pedis. In an acute flare-up, the skin of the foot is red or white with scales, cracks, inflammation, cuts, and blisters.
There is itching, burning, and stinging. Most often it occurs in between the toes. During an acute flare-up, secondary bacterial infection is common.
In chronic athlete’s foot, the skin of the sides and sole of the foot is pink and scaly and there is no itchiness.
Tinea pedis can also infect the scalp, where it causes hair loss and scaly patches. It can infect the body, where it causes round, red, scaly patches, such as ring worm that itch and at the groin, where jock itch causes itching, redness and thickening of the skin.
The fungus lives off dead skin cells and thrives in warm, damp environments, such as the floors around gym locker rooms, showers and indoor swimming pools.
Don’t be confused. Athletes foot can sometimes be confused with dyshydrotic dermatitis, contact or atopic dermatitis, erythrasma and psoriasis.
Managing Athlete’s Foot
Prevention is key so it is important to take the following steps to prevent infection:
1. Good hygiene is vital. Keep your feet clean. Wash your feet twice a day with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.
Wash your hands with soap and water after coming into contact with the infected area. After bathing, wash out the tub or shower with an antiseptic cleaner such as Lysol.
2. Keep your feet thoroughly dry, especially between your toes. Use a foot powder to keep feet dry. Simple corn starch makes a good foot dusting powder.
3. Wear cotton socks, and change your socks daily. Wash socks in the hot water setting of a washing machine. Be sure to rinse the socks thoroughly during laundering, because detergent residue can aggravate your skin problem.
4. Don’t wear tight, closed-toe shoes. Moisture and heat cause athlete’s foot fungus to thrive. Natural materials such as cotton and leather create the best environment for feet, while rubber and even wool may induce sweating and hold moisture.
5. Whenever possible, such as during the summer, wear airy shoes such as sandals. Don’t go barefoot in public places. Wear slippers or flip-flops.
6. Don’t share towels, and keep your linens and towels clean.
7. To further keep your feet dry, allow them to air-dry for 5 or 10 minutes after a shower.
8. Freshen your shoes once a week and keep them clean.
9. Remove dead skin as the initial stage of athlete’s foot has seemed to settle down, remove any dead skin. This skin contains living fungi that can reinfect you. In the bath tub, vigorously work the entire foot with a bristle scrub brush.
Pay special attention to spaces between the toes. Use a small bottle brush or clean toothbrush. If you scrub your feet in the bathtub, shower afterward to wash away any bits of skin that could attack to other parts of the body and start an infection.
10. Toenails are favorite breeding spots for the fungi. Scrape the undersides of your toenails clean at least every second or third day. Be sure to use a wooden stick, toothpick, or wooden match instead of a metal nail file, which could scratch the nails and provide niches for the fungus to grow in.
The goal in treating athlete’s foot is to kill the fungus. The tinea fungus is contagious and once it takes hold, it can be quite tenacious to get rid of. If you are dealing with athlete’s foot now, here are some of the best natural remedies for athlete’s foot:
Aromatherapy Remedies for Athletes Foot Treatment
Aromatherapy offers some of the best remedies for Athlete’s Foot Treatment and they are in the form of essential oils!
Helpful are essential oils of eucalyptus, lavender, myrrh, patchouli and tea tree and thyme oils and are all beneficial for destroying fungal infection.
In fact, they seem to work as well if not better than pharmaceutical anti-fungal products.
Tea Tree: (Melaleuca alternifolia) is the most common natural treatment for athlete’s foot. Tea tree oil has anti-fungal properties. Tea tree oil can be applied directly to the skin three times a day, covering the affected area.
About 4 to 10 drops is sufficient. Continue for two weeks after the fungal infection seems to have disappeared to ensure that it is eradicated. Tea tree oil also helps with fungal infections of the nails.
Studies have found tea tree oil is an antiseptic and has the ability to kill many bacteria and fungi. Two clinical trials suggest it may help people with athletes foot and be an effective Athlete’s Foot Natural Remedy.
One study examined the effectiveness of 10 percent tea tree oil cream compared with 1 percent tolnaftate (a medicated topical anti-fungal) and placebo creams in 104 people with athlete’s foot.
The tea tree oil and tolnaftate groups showed improvement in scaling, inflammation, itching, and burning compared to the placebo group, however, only the tolnaftate eradicated the fungi more effectively than a placebo.
Tea tree oil can also be mixed with aloe vera gel. About 4 ounces of aloe vera gel to 1/2 teaspoon of tea tree oil can be combined in a spray bottle and applied twice daily. Allow the feet to dry before putting on footwear.
Eucalyptus: reduces pain, spasms and inflammation, stimulating local blood circulation and the removal of waste products and toxins from the tissues. Eucalyptus helps new tissue to form.
This oil has strong anti-fungal, anti-viral and immune stimulating properties.
Caution: do not use along with homeopathic remedies, use only for a week at a time and do not use on babies or young children.
Myrrh is a wonderful pain killer. This antiseptic oil works miracles on cracked skin. Myrrh can speed the healing of eczema.
The anti-fungal properties make it just right for a foot bath for athlete’s foot, as a vaginal wash for thrush and a very good remedy for pain in Chinese medicine.
Patchouli: This rich, spicy oil so often used for nausea also helps normalize blood pressure either by raises blood pressure by restricting external blood flow, or lowers it by dilating surface blood vessels.
This oil is warming and an antiseptic. Patchouli is one of the best for fungal infections on the skin. Especially for athletes foot, chapped, dry skin, acne, eczema and dermatitis.
Lavender: is probably the most helpful and Universal oils on the planet. This anti-inflammatory oil blends well with other oils such as soothing Chamomile and pain-relieving Rosemary essential oil.
Thyme: is one of the most useful medicinal herbs in natural healing. This oil is an antiseptic, disinfectant, antibiotic and strong germicide. Thyme is extremely valuable for fighting infections.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments for Athlete’s Foot
Traditional Chinese medicine considers athletes’ foot as wind, heat and/or damp patterns. The protocol is to clear heat and damp, and to bring yeast cells under control by decreasing the source that is encouraging them to grow, and strengthen the immune system to prevent their recurrence.
Athlete’s foot can be differentiated into three additional patterns: blistering, erosive, and keratinized. All these three patterns have itching and smell.
Blistering is indicated by raised or fluid filled sacks. The erosive pattern is whitish with exudate, generally between the toes, and turns red after scratching.
Keratinized generally is dry and characterized by peeling skin. These types may be present all at the same time or occur one after another.
Natural remedy relieves symptoms of athletes foot
Foot Flame Dr is a 100% safe, non-addictive, natural herbal remedy specially formulated to relieve symptoms of athlete’s foot.
Formulated by the Native Remedies team of experts in natural medicine, Foot Flame Dr. has been used for many years to safely and effectively reduce the pain, itching and inflammation associated with athlete’s foot and speed up the healing process.
Foot Flame Dr should be used as directed to provide relief without the risk of addiction and other side effects.

Cancer is a frightening illness, and even hearing the word can be scary. Thus, it’s comforting to know that there are spices and foods that can help prevent and fight cancer. Here are some of those foods.
General
In addition to the specifics, there are a few wise, general rules to follow in any cancer-preventing or cancer-fighting diet.
First, variety is essential. Second, that variety needs to be plant-based, meaning the greater variety of fruits and vegetables you consume, the better. Third, the variety of plants you eat need to be whole and natural, not processed (in other words, buy a bunch of fresh, organic spinach rather than a package frozen, prepared spinach dip).
Applying these general guidelines to all the foods you buy will go a long way in promoting cancer prevention.
Specific foods
* Whole grains are an important source of inositol hexaphosphate, a form of B vitamin that is a cancer fighter.
* Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower contain D-glucaric acid, which is an anti-cancer phytochemical. (“Phytochemical” refers to any chemical component found in plants.)
* Berries protect DNA from damage; the multiplication of cells with damaged DNA is how cancer forms.
* Cherries, particularly tart ones, contain powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins.
* Garlic and onions have sulfides, immune-enhancers and cancer-fighters. Be sure to crush or chop garlic before consuming; this treatment enhances the cancer-fighting properties.
* Bell peppers have cancer-fighting capsaicin and vitamin C, an antioxidant.
* Tomatoes are rich in the antioxidant lycopene.
* Red clover can be used in salads, and is a good anti-cancer food.
* Citrus fruits contain the anti-cancer compound limonene.
* Raw almonds have laetrile, which is anti-cancer, and calcium, which is also implicated in cancer prevention. (Note – dairy products are not a good source of calcium for those on an anti-cancer diet.)
* Brazil nuts contain selenium; low levels of this substance are associated with increased cancer risk.
* Mushrooms, specifically shitake, reishi, and maitake enhance the immune system and help the body fight cancer cells.
* Beans and lentils have inositol hexaphosphate, the same form of B vitamin found in whole grains. Serve up the beans and whole grain brown rice! And add liberal amounts of some of the following spices.
Spices
* Remember the song about “parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme”? That combination of herbs makes an excellent anti-cancer blend. All four of these flavor-enhancers have anti-cancer properties. Rosemary in particular is under scrutiny as a cancer therapy due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity.
* Cumin is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
* Cayenne pepper has more of anti-cancer capsaicin than bell peppers.
* Turmeric is anti-inflammatory.
* Ginger is a pungent anti-inflammatory spice.
Bear in mind, too, that the National Institutes in Health (NIH) recommends five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Here’s where a blender can come in very handy – you can toss in five different fruits and veggies, add some filtered water, and create a healthful drink.
Strengthen Your Immune System Naturally
Beta-1, 3D Glucan boosts the immune system to provide support and balance. It is unlike other immune supplements that simply stimulate or alter the immune response in unnatural ways. Over 50 years of research from prestigious universities around the world document the benefits of Beta-1, 3D Glucan.
Transfer Point is the only company that offers a Beta glucan with a minimum of 83% Beta-1,3D Glucan content, with no harmful contaminants. Every batch is independently tested and a Certificate of Analysis is provided and available upon request.
Research proves that purity matters when it comes to biological activity. No other Beta glucan can match the effectiveness that has made Transfer Point’s Beta Glucan the respected name in immune support.

Boiling water: Use to flush drains and avoid clogs.
Coarse salt: Cleans copper pans and scours cookware. Sprinkle salt on fresh spills in the oven, then wipe off. Sprinkle salt on rust stains and squeeze a lime or lemon over them, let sit for several hours and wipe off.
Grapefruit seed extract: Add to water in a spray bottle for an odorless way to kill mold and mildew.
Lemon juice: Use as a bleaching agent on clothing, and to remove grease from stoves and countertops. Add 2 Tbsp lemon juice to 10 drops of (real) lemon oil and a few drops of jojoba oil to clean and polish wood furniture.
Olive oil: Use to lubricate and polish wood furniture (three parts olive oil to one part vinegar; or two parts olive oil with one part lemon juice).
Tea tree oil: Can be added to vinegar/water solutions for its anti-bacterial properties. Use it to kill mold and mildew, and on kitchen and bathroom surfaces instead of chemical products. Add 50 drops to a bucket of water to clean countertops and tile floors.
White vinegar: Cleans linoleum floors and glass (from windows to shower doors) when mixed with water and a little liquid soap (Castile or Vegetable) Cuts grease and removes stains; removes soap scum and cleans toilets (add a bit of baking soda if you like). Pour down drains once a week for anti-bacterial cleaning, and add to water in a spray bottle to kill mold and mildew.

These vague symptoms that are often overlooked tend to be the results of a congested and sluggish body system.
Exposure or toxicity to food additives, solvents, pesticides, herbicides and other toxic chemicals can cause a number of psychological and neurological symptoms. Toxins produced by bacteria in the gut can be absorbed, causing significant disruption of body functions. Toxins that the body are unable to eliminate build up in the tissues, typically in our fat stores.
One of the best ways to start your detoxification is with the body’s biggest organ, the SKIN. A detox diet strengthens the organs involved in detoxification and releases stored toxins, expelling them through the organs of elimination: the skin, as well as the intestines, liver, lungs, kidneys, and lymphatic system.
Top 10 Tips for Detoxing
1. Eating a diet that focuses on fresh vegetables and fruits, legumes, nuts and seeds and whole grains are extremely important.
2. Regular exercise, which gets your body moving and sweating.
3. Quality sleep, where you do not have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep and wake feeling rested.
4. Avoiding drugs and excessive alcohol. The problem is not only illegal substances like cocaine, heroin and marijuana, but we are solicited constantly by legal substances that pollute the body such as habit forming sleeping pills, excessive antibiotics that destroy not only the bad bacteria, but the healthy bacterial flora and the constant ads for alcohol.
5. Nutritional and herbal supplements to protect and enhance liver function, the kidneys ability to process and the digestive system’s regularity,( discussed below).
6. Improving our mental/emotional process by stopping the mental chatter, approving and accepting ourselves and loosing the emotional baggage that drags us down.
7. Taking a spiritual approach by looking beyond the little things that get in the way and accepting and trusting the “Universal Power” or energy to guide you. Take a look at the big picture!
8. Decluttering the toxic waste around you including the clutter in your home/office, the friends or loved ones that poison your thoughts and actions and the environment that is making you sick.
9. Knowing that YOU are in control of your life.
10. That you have the power to do something about that will make a change.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Detoxing
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the oldest, continually practiced, and professionally administered health care system in the world. It is a documented medical system spanning over 2,500 years based on comprehensive philosophies, rational theories, clinically tested and empirically verified by over 100 generations of highly educated practitioners.
Chinese Medicine is a total system of internal medicine which is comprised of a diagnostic procedure based on signs, symptoms and treatment styles including acupuncture, herbal medicine, exercise, diet and meditation. It’s foundation is based on the principles of balance; the interdependent relationship of Yin and Yang. Through this balance, health is achieved and maintained.
Traditional Chinese Medicine detoxifies the body system through the organs, primarily:
The Lung and Large Intestine
In TCM, the lungs are an organ system that opens directly to the exterior. It’s function is to regulate and control the breath through inhalation and exhalation. Because of its opening through the nose, the lungs are easily susceptible to cold, heat, dryness, dampness, and most of all, heat and wind. This can effect the biggest organ of the body; the skin. The lung is closely related to the large intestine.
The large intestine controls the transformation of digestive wastes from liquid to solid state and transports the solids onwards and outwards. It plays a major role in the balance and purity of bodily fluids and assists the lungs in controlling the skin’s pores and perspiration. It depends on the lungs for movement via the expansion and contraction of the diaphragm, which works like a pump to give impetus to peristalsis by regulating abdominal pressure. The lungs expel toxins through breathing, especially deep breathing.
Deep breathing stimulates lymphatic flow, which eliminates toxins. The skin eliminates waste and toxins through perspiration. The colon eliminates toxins from the liver and digestive tract. The lungs are our attachment to the breath of life and the large intestines is it’s buddy. Incorporate deep breathing and exercise along with a tall glass of psyllium husk to get things moving.
The Liver and Gallbladder
In TCM, the liver is the “farmer who cultivates”. It stores blood, governs and regulates the blood, organizes the “free flow” of Qi energy to promote circulation which cultivates our emotions, soothes digestion, regulates menstruation and bile secretion.
The liver changes harmful toxins into substances, which can be eliminated safely the colon or kidneys. The liver is our master cleansing organ and the gall bladder is its mate. Enjoy a tall glass of water with a 1/2 lemon squeezed into it.
The Spleen and Stomach
In TCM, the spleen transports and transforms food and body fluids for transporting, for absorption, raises the body energy and controls the blood by keeping it in the vessels. When improper function occurs with the Spleen there is weight gain, high cholesterol, hypertension, bleeding disorders, dampness and a heavy sensation, muscle weakness and atrophy.
The blood and lymphatic system transport waste and toxins to other areas for elimination, including cellular waste. The stomach is the center of our ‘gut feelings’ our immune system center and the spleen (pancreas) is it’s associate. Eat the cleanest, purest foods, that are the least processed. Enjoy health probiotics found in yogurt and acidophilus. Avoid greasy, fried foods.
The Kidneys and Bladder
In TCM, the kidneys store our essence or the basic materials that make up our constitution and the reproductive fluids that create life. All organs are dependent on the Kidneys for proper growth, reproduction, water flow and control and the balance of “fire and water”.
The liver sends water soluble waste to the kidneys, where they are further filtered and passed through the bladder for elimination. The kidneys filter nutrients and waste from the blood. The kidneys are our major filter and the bladder is it’s friend. Boil 4 cups of water and a handful of corn silk. Drink this tea for amazing results.

Detoxification is a process that occurs within our bodies on a natural and continuous basis. Detoxifying is the process of releasing accumulated toxins and waste products that build up throughout our system. From birth, we are bombarded by toxins, externally from environmental sources and internally, our organs give off waste products that accumulate in our body. Imbalanced emotions also play a part in polluting our system with excess chemicals s...

How can you tell if your puppy’s encounter with an unfamiliar dog will be a delight or a disaster? That depends on how the other dog acts and how your puppy responds.
Pet dogs, though domesticated, interact with each other according to pack protocol. The pack (the basic canine social unit) is structured around a hierarchy of dominance and subordinance (submission).
Every pack member is dominant to some and subordinate to others, with the exception of the alpha male (who is dominant to all) and the lowest-ranking pack member (who is subordinate to all).
Social rank is communicated and enforced through body language – a complex combination of movements, posture and other physical signals.
When two dogs meet for the first time, the outcome depends on several factors:
1) Age: Most adult dogs tolerate puppies, but this isn’t always the case. If your puppy is approaching maturity and tries to out some dominant behaviors, an older dog may feel obligated to put your youngster in its place.
However, puppies of similar ages usually get along well with each other, because puppies usually don’t attempt to dominate each other.
2) Sex: Adult dogs often have friendlier interactions with dogs of the opposite sex than those of the same sex. Because this characteristic is related to maturity, it doesn’t affect interactions involving young puppies
3) Location: Dogs naturally try to protect their own territory (their house and yard), so they often get along better when they meet on neutral ground, such as a park. This tactic doesn’t work, however, if either dog decides that a frequently visited public location is part of its territory.
Most puppies, especially young ones, aren’t really territorial, but an adult dog may still regard your youngster as an intruder.
4) Owner Presence: And finally, some dogs are more amiable with one another when their owners aren’t around. This may be due to decreased feelings of jealousy or protectiveness. It may also be that socialization proceeds more smoothly without human interference.
A friendly dog will approach your puppy with a slightly crouched posture, low wagging tail, laid-back ears and a soft, indirect gaze. A not-so-friendly dog will approach standing tall, with its tail and ears erect. It’s gaze will be direct and staring; it may snarl or growl as it approaches.
Your puppy will probably respond to either of these dogs with submissive behavior, which is similar to that of the friendly dog, but more pronounced.
Your puppy may even roll over on its back or urinate a bit -signs of complete submission. Even the most aggressive dog won’t attack another dog in this position.

Athlete’s Foot is a fungal infection of the skin also known as tinea pedis. In an acute flare-up, the skin of the foot is red or white with scales, cracks, inflammation, cuts, and blisters.
There is itching, burning, and stinging. Most often it occurs in between the toes. During an acute flare-up, secondary bacterial infection is common.
In chronic athlete’s foot, the skin of the sides and sole of the foot is pink and scaly and there is no itchiness.
Tinea pedis can also infect the scalp, where it causes hair loss and scaly patches. It can infect the body, where it causes round, red, scaly patches, such as ring worm that itch and at the groin, where jock itch causes itching, redness and thickening of the skin.
The fungus lives off dead skin cells and thrives in warm, damp environments, such as the floors around gym locker rooms, showers and indoor swimming pools.
Don’t be confused. Athletes foot can sometimes be confused with dyshydrotic dermatitis, contact or atopic dermatitis, erythrasma and psoriasis.
Managing Athlete’s Foot
Prevention is key so it is important to take the following steps to prevent infection:
1. Good hygiene is vital. Keep your feet clean. Wash your feet twice a day with soap and water, and dry them thoroughly.
Wash your hands with soap and water after coming into contact with the infected area. After bathing, wash out the tub or shower with an antiseptic cleaner such as Lysol.
2. Keep your feet thoroughly dry, especially between your toes. Use a foot powder to keep feet dry. Simple corn starch makes a good foot dusting powder.
3. Wear cotton socks, and change your socks daily. Wash socks in the hot water setting of a washing machine. Be sure to rinse the socks thoroughly during laundering, because detergent residue can aggravate your skin problem.
4. Don’t wear tight, closed-toe shoes. Moisture and heat cause athlete’s foot fungus to thrive. Natural materials such as cotton and leather create the best environment for feet, while rubber and even wool may induce sweating and hold moisture.
5. Whenever possible, such as during the summer, wear airy shoes such as sandals. Don’t go barefoot in public places. Wear slippers or flip-flops.
6. Don’t share towels, and keep your linens and towels clean.
7. To further keep your feet dry, allow them to air-dry for 5 or 10 minutes after a shower.
8. Freshen your shoes once a week and keep them clean.
9. Remove dead skin as the initial stage of athlete’s foot has seemed to settle down, remove any dead skin. This skin contains living fungi that can reinfect you. In the bath tub, vigorously work the entire foot with a bristle scrub brush.
Pay special attention to spaces between the toes. Use a small bottle brush or clean toothbrush. If you scrub your feet in the bathtub, shower afterward to wash away any bits of skin that could attack to other parts of the body and start an infection.
10. Toenails are favorite breeding spots for the fungi. Scrape the undersides of your toenails clean at least every second or third day. Be sure to use a wooden stick, toothpick, or wooden match instead of a metal nail file, which could scratch the nails and provide niches for the fungus to grow in.
The goal in treating athlete’s foot is to kill the fungus. The tinea fungus is contagious and once it takes hold, it can be quite tenacious to get rid of. If you are dealing with athlete’s foot now, here are some of the best natural remedies for athlete’s foot:
Aromatherapy Remedies for Athletes Foot Treatment
Aromatherapy offers some of the best remedies for Athlete’s Foot Treatment and they are in the form of essential oils!
Helpful are essential oils of eucalyptus, lavender, myrrh, patchouli and tea tree and thyme oils and are all beneficial for destroying fungal infection.
In fact, they seem to work as well if not better than pharmaceutical anti-fungal products.
Tea Tree: (Melaleuca alternifolia) is the most common natural treatment for athlete’s foot. Tea tree oil has anti-fungal properties. Tea tree oil can be applied directly to the skin three times a day, covering the affected area.
About 4 to 10 drops is sufficient. Continue for two weeks after the fungal infection seems to have disappeared to ensure that it is eradicated. Tea tree oil also helps with fungal infections of the nails.
Studies have found tea tree oil is an antiseptic and has the ability to kill many bacteria and fungi. Two clinical trials suggest it may help people with athletes foot and be an effective Athlete’s Foot Natural Remedy.
One study examined the effectiveness of 10 percent tea tree oil cream compared with 1 percent tolnaftate (a medicated topical anti-fungal) and placebo creams in 104 people with athlete’s foot.
The tea tree oil and tolnaftate groups showed improvement in scaling, inflammation, itching, and burning compared to the placebo group, however, only the tolnaftate eradicated the fungi more effectively than a placebo.
Tea tree oil can also be mixed with aloe vera gel. About 4 ounces of aloe vera gel to 1/2 teaspoon of tea tree oil can be combined in a spray bottle and applied twice daily. Allow the feet to dry before putting on footwear.
Eucalyptus: reduces pain, spasms and inflammation, stimulating local blood circulation and the removal of waste products and toxins from the tissues. Eucalyptus helps new tissue to form.
This oil has strong anti-fungal, anti-viral and immune stimulating properties.
Caution: do not use along with homeopathic remedies, use only for a week at a time and do not use on babies or young children.
Myrrh is a wonderful pain killer. This antiseptic oil works miracles on cracked skin. Myrrh can speed the healing of eczema.
The anti-fungal properties make it just right for a foot bath for athlete’s foot, as a vaginal wash for thrush and a very good remedy for pain in Chinese medicine.
Patchouli: This rich, spicy oil so often used for nausea also helps normalize blood pressure either by raises blood pressure by restricting external blood flow, or lowers it by dilating surface blood vessels.
This oil is warming and an antiseptic. Patchouli is one of the best for fungal infections on the skin. Especially for athletes foot, chapped, dry skin, acne, eczema and dermatitis.
Lavender: is probably the most helpful and Universal oils on the planet. This anti-inflammatory oil blends well with other oils such as soothing Chamomile and pain-relieving Rosemary essential oil.
Thyme: is one of the most useful medicinal herbs in natural healing. This oil is an antiseptic, disinfectant, antibiotic and strong germicide. Thyme is extremely valuable for fighting infections.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments for Athlete’s Foot
Traditional Chinese medicine considers athletes’ foot as wind, heat and/or damp patterns. The protocol is to clear heat and damp, and to bring yeast cells under control by decreasing the source that is encouraging them to grow, and strengthen the immune system to prevent their recurrence.
Athlete’s foot can be differentiated into three additional patterns: blistering, erosive, and keratinized. All these three patterns have itching and smell.
Blistering is indicated by raised or fluid filled sacks. The erosive pattern is whitish with exudate, generally between the toes, and turns red after scratching.
Keratinized generally is dry and characterized by peeling skin. These types may be present all at the same time or occur one after another.

Cancer is a frightening illness, and even hearing the word can be scary. Thus, it’s comforting to know that there are spices and foods that can help prevent and fight cancer. Here are some of those foods.
General
In addition to the specifics, there are a few wise, general rules to follow in any cancer-preventing or cancer-fighting diet.
First, variety is essential. Second, that variety needs to be plant-based, meaning the greater variety of fruits and vegetables you consume, the better. Third, the variety of plants you eat need to be whole and natural, not processed (in other words, buy a bunch of fresh, organic spinach rather than a package frozen, prepared spinach dip).
Applying these general guidelines to all the foods you buy will go a long way in promoting cancer prevention.
Specific foods
* Whole grains are an important source of inositol hexaphosphate, a form of B vitamin that is a cancer fighter.
* Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower contain D-glucaric acid, which is an anti-cancer phytochemical. (“Phytochemical” refers to any chemical component found in plants.)
* Berries protect DNA from damage; the multiplication of cells with damaged DNA is how cancer forms.
* Cherries, particularly tart ones, contain powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins.
* Garlic and onions have sulfides, immune-enhancers and cancer-fighters. Be sure to crush or chop garlic before consuming; this treatment enhances the cancer-fighting properties.
* Bell peppers have cancer-fighting capsaicin and vitamin C, an antioxidant.
* Tomatoes are rich in the antioxidant lycopene.
* Red clover can be used in salads, and is a good anti-cancer food.
* Citrus fruits contain the anti-cancer compound limonene.
* Raw almonds have laetrile, which is anti-cancer, and calcium, which is also implicated in cancer prevention. (Note – dairy products are not a good source of calcium for those on an anti-cancer diet.)
* Brazil nuts contain selenium; low levels of this substance are associated with increased cancer risk.
* Mushrooms, specifically shitake, reishi, and maitake enhance the immune system and help the body fight cancer cells.
* Beans and lentils have inositol hexaphosphate, the same form of B vitamin found in whole grains. Serve up the beans and whole grain brown rice! And add liberal amounts of some of the following spices.
Spices
* Remember the song about “parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme”? That combination of herbs makes an excellent anti-cancer blend. All four of these flavor-enhancers have anti-cancer properties. Rosemary in particular is under scrutiny as a cancer therapy due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity.
* Cumin is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
* Cayenne pepper has more of anti-cancer capsaicin than bell peppers.
* Turmeric is anti-inflammatory.
* Ginger is a pungent anti-inflammatory spice.
Bear in mind, too, that the National Institutes in Health (NIH) recommends five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Here’s where a blender can come in very handy – you can toss in five different fruits and veggies, add some filtered water, and create a healthful drink.
