If you’re plagued with bad breath (halitosis), you can probably relate to how hard it is to get rid of it — and how embarrassing it can be. If you’ve tried over-the-counter remedies and found that they just didn’t work for you or just made your mouth feel like cotton, you need to know that TEA is your answer.

Tea is an all-natural way to banish bad breath!

What causes bad breath? It happens when bacteria grows rapidly on the surface of your tongue or hides in gum pockets. The bacteria gives off a sulfurous-like odor that gives you what’s known as halitosis or bad breath. Most over the counter products only attempt to cover up the smell, which is why they don’t work.

In order to rid yourself of the halitosis problem, the bacteria itself would need to be taken care of. Black tea is known to help control plaque within the mouth, which would normally cause the bacteria to grow.

Without the plaque, bacteria are kept under control, thereby keeping bad breath problems at bay.  Studies show that the polyphenols found in some teas helps keep the foul odor bacteria from forming.

By drinking some tea regularly, you can help keep bad breath and plaque under control AND reduce the amounts of colds, throat infections and even dental problems you endure.

What better way to do this than to do it with tea, which happens to be an all-natural product that has no harmful side effects linked to it? Not only that, but it assists with so many other things that help our body stay healthy longer. Read More→

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that affects both children and adults. Learning disabilities such as forgetfulness, inability to organize thoughts and shortened attention span can make ADHD a very frustrating illness to live with.

Research has shown that the cause of ADHD is a failure of the brain to properly stimulate the neural network that rules such areas as how we react to outside stimulation and our emotions. The result can be extreme anxiety and aggressive behavior.

Diet is a component that should be addressed when attempting to treat ADHD — too much sugar or allergies to certain foods such as peanuts, tomatoes or milk – can have a huge impact on controlling adverse stimulation to the brain. Red, yellow and blue food dyes found in many foods can also cause undesirable reactions in children with ADHD.

Mainstream medicine often uses antidepressants or other stimulant-type drugs to treat ADHD, but they’re often ineffective and can cause a lack of interest in life and depression. More people who suffer from ADHD are turning to herbal remedies for positive results. Some helpful herbs include: Read More→

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the combined use of medical practices and products that aren’t a part of conventional medicine. Many are using the CAM approach in hopes that they can prevent disease and live a more enhanced quality of life.

People often turn to CAM because conventional medical techniques aren’t always successful in treating chronic health conditions and psychological behaviors. The lack of proper insurance coverage is also a factor in more and more people turning to CAM.

CAM is based on both provider and non-provider therapies. The provider therapies include reflexology and acupuncture and the non-provider therapies include herbal remedies, certain types of exercise and meditation.

A complementary and alternative approach to your health can help you get in touch with your personal power and become the best person you can be, both in mind and body.

If you’re hurting physically or not mentally alert, life can begin to pass you by and you may find yourself in the proverbial rut. The ancient findings of Eastern medicine, combined with our modern technology, can lead the way back to physical fitness and mental alertness.
