8 simple ways to beat seasonal depression

In my previous post I have mentioned SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder – also called “seasonal depression”) and fatigue briefly as the cause for feeling uninspired.

Quick & Easy Home Remedies for Constipation

Are you constipated? Read on…

We all get occasional problems with constipation. Most of us keep it to ourselves, being so embarrassed that we don’t even ask for help when it is needed. Let me address the “embarrassment” factor first though. If we look at our stool movements as a natural process which happens in our body in order to keep us alive, we will be able to see that there is nothing embarrassing about it at all.


This is not to say that we should broadcast it to the world, but taking the “embarrassment” out of the subject means that we can discuss it without going red in the face, at least with health professionals. It is a lot easier to treat constipation when at an early stage – by simply adjusting our water intake and nutrition, than using prescription medicines.



What I Used to Help My Painful Knee

How I cured my painful knee in only four daysA painful knee is not only uncomfortable – it can literally stop us in our tracks – from doing everyday tasks to being unable to walk and exercise. Besides, it can last for weeks, and sometimes much longer.

Magnesium Salts for Chronic and Acute Back Pain

Magnesium salts for chronic and acute back painUsing magnesium salts for chronic and acute back pain has been a subject of discussions and research for a long time. There is no arguing that replacing medications with natural treatments and remedies could save many people from sometimes horrible side-effects which come with taking pain-killers, sometimes very strong.


Back pain affects most people at some point in their lives. In many cases, it has simpe reasons, such as a muscle strain (commonly known as a pulled muscle), ligament or tendon injury, or a herniated intervertebral (“slipped”) disk which may press on nearby nerves causing acute pain.


Back pain that lasts for more than 2 or 3 months is considered chronic. Chronic back pain may have a number of causes, most common of which could be an old injury or degenerative disease (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis etc).

How to Survive MondayI often hear it from my friends, and read it on social media – people complaining about Monday being the worst day of the week.

12 reasons you need to start using magnesium oil

We hear a lot about magnesium, and advice from natural health practitioners about the importance of magnesium supplementation. There are loads of articles about it on the web. However, do we really know why it plays such an important role in maintaining our health – and life? What is it about magnesium that singles it out from other minerals?


In this article I will try to summarise why it is that we need is so much – what it does for us and what happens when we don’t get enough of it. For those of you who don’t know what magnesium oil is – it is in fact a highly saturated magnesium chloride solution, which is a salt, and not an oil, but which feels like an oil when applied on the skin – hence the name.
