Amber is fossilized resin that can be dated back to prehistoric times – as far as 50 million years ago. Everything in life has a use and a function so naturally, the benefits of resin would be used from the amber trees themselves to stay strong and prevent getting infected or injured due to its antibiotic powers. This neat finding was later discovered by people and for centuries, it has been used as a remedy for pain relief, boost the immune system, and enhance jumpstarting your body back to it's functional operation. It has long served as an embalming substance, having both antimicrobial and drying properties. During the Ancient Egyptian period and during wars, many would apply resin on the injured to disinfect their wounds and save their lives.

To this day, amber’s therapeutic properties are being used and remains to be the center of attention in several scientific studies that indicate its amazing abilities.

The resin is an electromagnet that produces mass amounts of organic, pure energy that our body uses.

Eat These Foods for Inflammation

Fixing the Problem vs. Fixing the Symptoms

 

Acute and chronic heaImage result for inflammationlth problems caused by inflammation can induce pain and stress on an individual. When you think you’ve tried just about everything, you final pitstop for help is often the doctors. While there is nothing wrong going to the doctor and getting treated for an issue you believe is problematic (in fact, it is also recommended), you should still keep in mind that the drugs that are prescribed to you often address the symptoms rather than the cause. This means the inflammation and toxins still exist and overwhelm your body, and has the potential of getting worse over time. When we are born, most of us are healthy without complications; they develop as we grow older for a lot of reasons. One of these reasons is what we are putting inside our body without thinking of the consequences. Of course, it is not bad to splurge every once in a while, a diet made of empty calories can impede the body’s self-healing capabilities. Replacing this type of diet with foods, herbs, and spices can help address the imbalance going on internally and remove toxins.

Top Anti-Inflammatory Foods

  • Olive/Fish Oil: Healthy fats rich in omega-3, such as olive oil, offers amazing anti-inflammatory benefits comparable to ibuprofen. You can drink it straight from a spoon, add it to your foods, or mixing it with lemon and water. Oil from fish like trout, salmon and halibut have the same benefits and can improve blood circulation If you aren’t a fish person, you can opt for flaxseeds, chia seeds, or hemp seeds instead.
  • Rosehips: Rosehips has been found to work wonders for arthritis pain, where many were able to reduce or stop taking their medication in under a month. It can ease joint stiffness and severity of pain for those who still have arthritis.

  • Vitamin D: Reduced levels of this vitamin has been associated with chronic musculoskeletal pain. Many people tend to be low in vitamin D because they avoid the sun and because it is found in few foods (fish and cow liver). Getting enough sun outside for at least 20-30 minutes a day can help return levels to normal.
  • Magnesium: We need magnesium in order to support nerve and muscle function while treating migraines, cramps, and fibromyalgia. A lack in this mineral can result in migraine headaches and cramps. Although there are supplements available, their use is not recommended as it is difficult for the body to absorb. It is better use magnesium lotion, oil, or take an Epsom bath 2-3 times a week. You can also eat more seeds, nuts, and beans.
  • Ginger: This spice is highly anti-inflammatory and is perfect for easing muscle aches, headaches, arthritis as well as abdominal and joint pain. Ginger can be consumed as a tea or added in a variety of recipes to give food a nice kick.

  • Tumeric: Like ginger, turmeric works wonders for swelling issues and pain, especially those suffering from chronic pain. It works together with the body to get rid of harmful toxins too. Curcumin, the active ingredient, has been linked in reducing pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia.
  • Red Grapes: Red grapes, in particular, have bountiful amounts of resveratrol that work as powerful antioxidants that inhibit receptors for pain perception (COX-1 and COX-2) while stopping inflammation at the same time. This fruit can even inhibit the production of nitric oxide – also responsible for inflammation.
  • Berries: Berries have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and antioxidant capabilities and are wonderful for detoxing our system and getting rid of waste products while easing inflammation and pain. It helps to eat at least one cup of berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries) daily.

Fighting off Inflammation Daily

When our body can no longer heal as it normally should after an injury or abnormality, inflammation can become chronic and have unwanted repercussions. There are a range of diseases that stem from inflammation such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus), infection, ulcerative Adult Amber Necklace - Arthritis Carpal Tunnel Sciatica Pain Inflammation Raw 18 20 22 Inch Necklace Unpolished Cognac Baltic Amber Adultcolitis, and even some cancers.

Amber is made from fossilized resin noted not only for its beauty, but for its capabilities in easing pain and swelling. When the necklace is worn, the benefits are transferred from the beads and directly to the bloodstream after being warmed on the skin. The analgesic and anti-inflammatory powers of amber will last you for months and results can be felt in as little as a day.

Make Gut Issues a Thing of the Past

Make Gut Issues a Thing of the Past

Problems in the Stomach

Our body has many ways in rejecting things that it does not want or speaks to us when we take ingest something we shouldn’t have. One of the simplest gastrointestinal (GI) problems everyone is likely familiar with is the stomach ache. As painful and annoying as it can be, it is a normal process that can because we are sick, anxious, or ate something spicy, sour or past the expiration date. Stomach aches are normally few and far in between and disappear after a few hours or days, but if you notice they are sticking around longer, you may be battling a bigger gut problem. Those with chronic gut problems may also have pain, nausea, bloating, and elimination troubles on a frequent basis. A person may have or risk developing leaky gut syndrome, chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or ulcerative colitis.  

Things to Avoid

Gut issues begin to surface when something is already off balance, whether it is hormones, bacteria, blockage, sensitivity to certain proteins, inflammation, or a combination of these. Depending on the type of GI issue you have, there are food triggers that you will want to avoid if they seem to be related to flare-ups. The FODMAP diet, for example, is great for those with IBD, and its purpose is to avoid consuming poorly absorbed carbs from fruits, veggies, wheat, sweets, and dairy. The FODMAP may also be used for ulcerative colitis as well as a low-sodium and low-fiber diet.  Those with Crohn’s should stay away from butter, Image result for gut foods to avoiddairy, coffee, chocolate, fried foods, and foods high in fiber. The same also goes for people who have a leaky gut, with the exception that they can have fiber.


Start Taking Probiotics

It probably does not come as a surprise to know gut issues result from an accumulation of bacteria. While the gut is normally filled with bacteria (good and bad), too much of the “bad” bacteria can breed more bad bacteria, fungus, parasites, yeast, and viruses. Probiotics helps equip your gut with the “good” bacteria that it needs to promote a healthy environment, improve immunity, balance hormones, regulate appetite, and increase energy levels. One of the simplest way to make sure you are getting enough probiotics is by taking supplements. It is best to take probiotics as soon as you wake up on an empty stomach. This ensures that you are getting the most out of the bacterial str
ain. You can also consume foods that are a good source of probiotics such as:

  • Yogurt
  • Kimchi
  • Souerkraut
  • Kefir
  • Miso
  • Kombucha
  • Dark Chocolate

3 – Diverticulitis: Older adults developing abnormal bulges, known as diverticula, anywhere along the GI tract that can form into diverticulitis, a tear, or abscess.
