    Herbs Helping Health

    in Self Help

    Herbs are plants used as natural health foods or as alternative medicine. They are used for cleansing, for nutrition and support for certain organs and systems and as natural medicine. 


    Herbs can be consumed raw, with foods, dehydrated and made into tea or powdered in capsules, or made into an herbal extract or an essential oil, individually or as part of an herbal formula. 


    The phytonutrients in herbs have special benefits for improving health. Many of today's nutraceuticals contain herbs, and several common pharmaceuticals were derived initially from herbs. 


    Certain plants provide powerful compounds that can assist the body in correcting imbalances. Cordyceps tones organs and improves stamina. Turmeric has highly beneficial antioxidants, especially curcumin, to counter inflammation by free radicals. Aloe vera is soothing and healing to the skin as well as internal lining tissues such as the digestive tract. St. Johnswort calms the nerves and supports emotional well-being. Larrea tridentata interrupts the action of viruses and other invaders.

    Minority Health Month--Real Talk

    in Health

    National Minority Health Month began 100 years ago as National Negro Health Week. In April 1915, Dr. Booker T. Washington dispatched a letter to the leading African American newspapers, proposing the observance of "National Negro Health Week." Health was the key to progress and equity in all other things, he argued: "Without health and long life, all else fails." He called on local health departments, schools, churches, businesses, professional associations, and the most influential organizations in the African-American community to "pull together" and "unite… in one great National Health Movement."

    Understanding Your Stress Hormone --Cortisol

    in Health

    Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we share how we can make the hormone, cortisol, work for us, despite the bad reputation it has come to carry.


    Commonly known as the "stress hormone," it;s produced in part, by the adrenal glands when we're under pressure and perceive a threat.  The pituitary gland determines how much hormone the adrenals should release to help us fight or flee.


    This alarm system works beautifully -- until it doesn't.  Yet, without it we're helpless.
