    Helping improve your Thyroid Gland Function with Herbs

    in Health

    On tonight's show Rosie is going to discuss some important herbs and seeds to add to your diet that will help your thyroid glands and improve your overall health.


    Bladderwhack


    This herb has a funny name, but it has a lot of potential for those who are experiencing an underactive thyroid. This is because it has a high iodine content and iodine is one of the most important nutrients for your thyroid. By replacing iodine, it can help to improve an underactive thyroid.
    Flaxseed


    You often hear about flaxseed when it comes to digestive health and while it is important for this because it is high in fiber, it also aids your thyroid. Those with underactive thyroid can help to boost their thyroid hormone ratio by consuming this herb on a daily basis. What is ideal about this herb is that you only need about one tablespoon every day to reap the full benefits.


    Evening Primrose Oil


    This herb is popular for women’s health, but it is also highly beneficial for the thyroid. In addition to aiding with underactive thyroid as a whole, it can also aid with the symptoms of this condition, such as reducing hair loss and heavy menstrual periods. It is often recommended to drink this as a tea for the most benefit.


    The show is sponsored by Rosalea of Blended Herbal Treasures at www.bhtshop.com

    Aphrodisiacs

    in Romance

    Aphrodisiac: A substance that increases sexual desire. The name comes from Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of sexuality and love. Throughout history, many foods, drinks, and behaviors have had a reputation for making sex more attainable or pleasurable. However, from a historical and scientific standpoint, the alleged results may have been due to mere belief by their users, rather than an actual increase in sexual desire or performance. Either way, we're going to go over them! Join us, as SWAK gets juicy, with our topic: All About Aphrodisiacs  We'll tell you what they are, which ones work, and which ones are totally bogus!

    Herbs That Heal

    in Environment

    All chefs know that the secret to good food is fresh herbs. Whether you are a chef or just someone who appreciates the flavor of fresh, organic herbs, having an herb garden is becoming an essential part of every home environment. In addition to culinary uses, herbs are also grown for a myriad of reasons such as natural remedies, fragrance, beauty, to dye textiles, for attracting pollinators and even to repel other insects. Some herbs are even grown for spiritual ceremonies and rituals. While there are many uses for herbs, growing your own herbs is something that everyone should incorporate into their home environment. It is economic, good for the environment and good for your health! Tammi Hartung, author of Homegrown Herbs- A Complete Guide To Growing, Using and Enjoying More than 100 Herbs, will share her stories and inspirational guidelines for growing and using herbs as a part of ones daily lifestyle. She will discuss ways to garden on the windowsill during cold seasons and outdoors in the garden the rest of the year. She will describe ways to cook with herbs, how to prepare them for a proper cup of tea and how to use them in the bath.

    Green Herbs to Heal the World

    in Health

    Sorry Everyone. We dropped the ball last week with our Online Circle on Moringa (Moringa Oleifera). Google was in a mood and didn't want to allow the broadcast. No worries, let's go for round two tonight at 6:30 PM EST to pick up the discussion on Moringa,  a powerful green herb I was recently reintroduced to last week in Jamaica, and why not... let's throw in other powerful green herbs such as spirulina, yerba mate,  and more...

    Please join the discussion and share your knowledge and ideas with the world. We want to hear about green herbs that have the potential to heal the world, particularly people who don't have access to unlimited supply of fresh food and clean water.

    This should be an interesting discussion.
    Join the video chat or call in at 917 889 9947

    Spread the word about the Online Circles.
    We're back on schedule for every Tusday night at 6:30 pm est.

    Recordings will be published at http://youtube.com/user/circleofdrink
