Curcumin May Prevent Breast Cancer For Women Who Took Hormones

Posted by on Jul 25 2009 | Uncategorized

Estrogen and the hormone progestin can promote breast cancer. Studies have shown that postmenopausal women who took a combination of estrogen and progestin in hormone replacement therapy have an increased risk of developing progestin-fueled breast cancer. Here is a natural therapy that could help. Curcumin is a popular Indian spice that comes from the turmeric root and could reduce the risk of breast cancer risk in women exposed to these hormones.

Six million women in the US use hormone replacement therapy to treat the symptoms of menopause. This exposure will put these women at a risk for future development of breast cancer. Taking curcumin may help protect them from developing progestin-accelerated cancer.

The research team found that curcumin delayed the first appearance of progestin-accelerated tumors in lab animal experiments. Curcurmin also decreased the incidence and lowered the numbers of progestin-fueled breast tumors in the studies.

According to the American Cancer Society, using hormones that combine estrogen and progestin for several years increases the risk of developing breast cancer and the chances of dying from the disease.

Find Health and Healing Properties in Ginger

Posted by on Jul 18 2009 | Uncategorized

Ginger has long been used as a natural healing agent by Asian cultures. Ginger is especially helpful in treating digestive issues like nausea and diarrhea. Other uses of ginger include inflammation, heart conditions, arthritis, colic, and headaches.

Ginger has been shown by various studies to be more effective than placebo in the treatment of nausea. One of the greatest benefits of utilizing ginger instead of medication is that ginger does not have side effects. Studies have also shown that pregnancy related nausea can be safely and effectively treated with small doses of ginger. Other studies have looked at the benefits of ginger for reducing nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy in cancer patients.

Ginger also appears to have anticancer properties. Researchers have found that in laboratory settings ginger powder can kill ovarian cancer cells.

Do you live in denim? I find with my casual lifestyle of a stay at home mom, denim comprises a high percentage of my wardrobe. Of course, I could never stand to be bored, so I vary my denim with lots of different styles and colors.

I was just browsing for new denim jeans at Armani Jeans and found some great looks and great prices. Look what I found!

Colostrum Can Reverse the Aging Process

Posted by on Jul 15 2009 | Uncategorized

Colostrum is often called liquid gold. It is the liquid secreted before a new mother’s breast milk is established immediately after the birth of a baby. Colostrum is said to affect the immune and growth factors that insure health and vitality of the newborn baby. Colostrum carries immunities transferred from mother to infant.

Human mothers produce a small amount of colostrum but cows produce approximately nine gallons after giving birth. Colostrum is produced by almost all mammals.

Colostrum is a supplement that can bring help to everyone that uses it because of its ability to perform many of the functions of human growth hormone in the body. Scientists believe colostrum may be the most important preventative that can be consumed. Scientists in London have found that colostrum can prevent the death of human neurons and effectively treat Alzheimer’s patients.

Colostrum works in a unusual way to protect the body from pathology. Most pathogens enter the system through the mucous membranes of the intestinal tract. Bacteria, viruses, pollutants, contaminants and allergens must be fought there. A high percentage of the antibodies found in colostrum are not absorbed but remain in the intestinal tract. Immune factors work there to support proper immune function. Other immune factors from colostrum are believed to be absorbed and distributed to help other defense processes.

As people age, the immune system begins to decline. Aging people have trouble fighting off illness and energy begins to ebb. Bones thin, hair falls out, and vigor diminishes. Some people have begun to use a synthetic human growth hormone (HGH) replacement. This HGH is expensive, requires a prescription, and must be injected into the body. HGH is great for weight control and losing weight, particularly belly fat.

Supplementing with colostrum can provide many of the benefits of HGH.

Final Days to Go Blu!

Posted by on Jul 10 2009 | Uncategorized

Have you entered the BluFrog contest yet? I already told you about this last week, I believe, but this bears mentioning again. BluFrog is hosting a contest with some amazing grand prizes. Win a trip to Orlando, Aspen, Chicago, or New York…or win an awesome gaming package. Entering is easy so there’s no excuse not to get a chance at some of these prizes.

Have you tried BluFrog energy drinks yet? They are packed with real fruits, healthy ingredients, less sugar, and you won’t be lifted up and crashed to the floor from the sugar crash either. All of these things make it sound pretty good to me. This is a whole new breed of energy drinks for people who have shunned these drinks because they are not a healthy drink option. I fall into this option and am not an energy drink consumer as a rule, but I might make an exception for BluFrog.

Now that I have BluFrog on my mind, it’s going to be very hard to concentrate on anything else, I fear. But I think I might be able to concentrate on choosing which prize I would like to win. Hmmmmmm…I think I’ll go for Orlando. There…that wasn’t hard!

The Benefits of Barley

Posted by on Jul 09 2009 | Uncategorized

Barley is one of the most widely cultivated grains in the world. It has a nutty flavor, a texture somewhat like pasta, and is very versatile. It can be substituted for rice substitute in recipes and tastes great in a stir fry. One of the best health benefits of barley can be found in its high dietary fiber content.

Dietary fiber is essential for making your digestive system run efficiently. A sluggish digestive system is one of the main causes of colon cancer. A regular intake of barley has also been found to help the body create two chemicals called propionic and acetic acid which are used as fuel by the cells.

A recently published a report states that barley’s high fiber content has multiple beneficial effects on cholesterol. Barley has also been found to have significant cardiovascular benefits for young women. Adding barley to one’s diet slowed progression of atherosclerosis.
