12 Tips on How to Deal with Brain Fog

 

12 tips on dealing with brain fogDo you sometimes wake up with a feeling that you have cotton wool in your brain? I do, quite often. Most people call it “brain fog”. On such days I just simply feel like the life is being sucked out of me, slowly. On days like these, I would give up my breakfast, lunch and dinner to help it go away.

 

Is it only me who suffers from brain fog?

 

Apparently, I am not alone (which is somehow good to know). There are many people who go through such days. Apart from lack of clarity, other symptoms of brain fog include:

 

  • Forgetfulness
  • Lack of concentration
  • Irritability
  • Feeling sleepy
  • Lack of energy
  • Nausea
  • Feeling stressed
  • Sleep issues.

Top 10 Natural Cold & Flu Remedies

It’s February, and we are in the middle of a flu epidemic. Last week I started feeling weak. I think it was caused by a combination of stress, fatigue and poor sleep. When I had the flu last year I had it really bad, with severe bronchitis and months of trying to clear the remains of it. This time I decided to take no chances and started taking precautionary measures early. By the way, I wrote a blog post about natural remedies for the cold season a few years ago which you may also want to take a look at. This is an updated version of it.

How Toxins Make Us Fat & What We Can Do about It

How toxins make us fat and what to do about itThe fact that toxins make us fat has been proven many times. Toxicity and obesity are directly connected with each other, which is one of the reasons so many people struggle with weight loss.

 

The fast growth in the rate of obesity and type II diabetes in the past few decades has prompted scientists to look into possible causes which extend beyond diet and exercise. Various scientific research experiments have been conducted to establish the link, with very interesting results.

“Surviving in a Toxic World” – Book Coming Out Soon

I have been quietly working on my new book – “Surviving in a Toxic World”. I thought I should keep it to myself until the book was published, but then decided to share it with you – both to keep myself on track and also to let you know what was coming. The subject is too important to my heart and too urgent to procrastinate with it. I will explain why it is urgent shortly.

25 Health Benefits of Transdermal Magnesium Therapy

Transdermal Magnesium Therapy - Health BenefitsTransdermal Magnesium Therapy is not a new thing. It has been around for quite some time. Dr Mark Sircus wrote an excellent book on the subject – named “Transdermal Magnesium Therapy”.Dr Carolyn Dean and many other authors have also described in detail benefits and applications of magnesium salts for health and vitality.

Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body. Without it:

  • 300+ body processes would be impossible.
  • Our cells could not produce energy without magnesium.
  • Toxins would not get eliminated. Bones and teeth could not be formed.
  • Our heart and muscles would simply go into spasm.
  • The food we eat could not get converted into energy.

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.

 

Having relied on magnesium salts for well over a decade, I am a huge fan of this simple but powerful remedy. Don’t get me wrong – I am not trying to say that magnesium salt is a cure-all miracle. But it’s pretty close I’d say! 🙂

 

The more I learn about magnesium, the more I am convinced that many problems would not exist if we were all bathing in magnesium baths or even applying magnesium oil on ourselves at least twice a week.

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).
