I hope all is well with everyone. I thought I'd do something different and bring you.....
Healing from the Holy Land
Myrrh prevents gum disease:
Myrrh ups the activity of infection-fighting white blood cells to stop illness before it starts. As an antiseptic, it also kills fungi and bacteria, and is an anti-inflammatory that stops swelling, heals hurt tissues and relieves pain. It's also effective against mouth sores, sore throats and gum disease. You can use it for immune support by diluting it in water and drinking it. To use as a mouthwash, add 5-10 drops of myrrh extract to 8 ounces of water. (You can find myrrh extract on Amazon.com, I checked.)
Hyssop stops germs:
Used since ancient times to purify temples, scientists now know hyssop is packed with antimicrobial oils that kill germs, preventing and even curing infections. It also has anti-spasmodic compounds that help curtail coughing. As a protective or to help cure an infection or cough, sip up to 3 cups daily of hyssop tea.

Purslane helps protect your heart:
Purslane leaves, common in middle eastern cooking, have the highest amount of heart-healthy omega-3 fats of any edible plant, according to researchers of the University of Texas in San Antonio. They also found that this herb has 10-20 times more melatonin- an antioxidant that may inhibit cancer growth- than any other fruit or vegetable tested. You can find purslane in the produce section of health food stores, or take it as a supplement. (Swanson Full Spectrum Purslane, $7.99, http://swansonvitamins.com Be sure to check the label for appropriate dosage and ask your doctor before use.)
Aloe Leaf helps with digestion:
"Drinking aloe juice detoxifies the body, cleanses the system, eases stomach inflammation and kills pathogens in the intestinal tract", confirms chemist Shane Ellison, author of Over the Counter Natural Cures. Studies show it may even help suppress cancerous tumors in the GI tract. (Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Juice, $6.44, Walmart.com)
Dead Sea Salt helps with stress:
The Dead Sea has a salt content 8 times higher than any ocean and has the greatest concentration of therapeutic minerals including relaxing magnesium, detoxifying sulfur and anti-inflammatory silicon. "Dead Sea salt calms the nervous system, soothes aching joints and sore muscles, increases circulation and removes impurities", says dermatologist Marina Peredo, M.D. One study claims a salt soak reduced osteoarthritis symptoms 80%.

Date palms help you focus:
Date palms have more antioxidants and nutrients than almost every other food. These include; energizing iron, zinc, copper and B vitamins. They have a sugary taste, but studies show that the natural sugars won't raise blood glucose levels. Eating 1/4 cup of dates revs focus and alertness in 30 minutes without the blood sugar spikes that cause fatigue.
Please take care of your health, prevention is always the key.
Peace, Love and Blessings, everyone.
