Does Bach Flower Remedies Actually Work?

Let me explain something to you . I think the flowers are very good. Yes a lot of people says they have the placebo effect, but the Placebo Effect itself has been observed in patients who don't have brain function in the areas we associate with placeboes.

Also, doctors know better than anybody that human biology is a peculiar science and the application of medicine is not governed by wide-ranging Universal laws like physics and chemistry. Medicinal treatments and responses vary between individuals.

Bach Flower Remedies were invented and developed by Dr. Edward Bach about 80 years ago.
A prominent physician, Dr. Bach decided to leave his practice and focus on homeopathy. He left London and began researching plant essences and their effect on humans.

Dr. Bach isolated and classified 38 flowers from which he extracted 38 essences with which he succeeded in healing patients’ ailments while taking into account their individual emotional states. Dr. Bach found that certain flower essences led to self-healing, as they purified the patient of negative elements that adversely affected their health.

Bach Flower remedies are completely safe for use by anyone, including children. They are natural, non-toxic, and non-habit-forming. Moreover, treatment with Bach Flowers can be combined with other homeopathic or conventional treatments. While it is unusual for Bach Flowers to be used for physical symptoms, it is possible that through their use, the body will heal itself of symptoms as the patient reaches a balanced mental state.

Bach Flower essences aid in changing negative emotions and eliminating defective traits or attitudes in such a way as to lead to the patient's peace of mind and contentment. Use of the essences aids in coping with stress, anxiety, depression, anger, fear, guilt, worry, and many other disturbing feelings.

The essences can help us to improve our emotional and mental state, thus balancing the body and the mind.

Environmental Illness In Your Home

Researchers found that the quality of air inside U.S. homes may be worse than outdoor air. What could be causing this problem? To begin, we are using more and more products, appliances and accessories in our homes that cause a variety of allergic reactions.

In addition, new homes are being built and remodeled tighter to prevent heat loss and air conditioning, so that the flow of air into and out of new homes is very limited.

The law Congress passed the “Clean Air Act” to help improve the air we breathe outdoors.The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA for its acronym in English) recently released new standards for outdoor air quality will benefit approximately 125 million Americans, including 35 million children.

Why your home is sick

1. Air conditioner: If the air outside your home is good quality, cross ventilation through doors and windows can be a good way to ventilate the house. You can use filter screens, filter fans or to prevent the passage of polen.Use purifiers or air cleaners if the air is not good. These filter devices work removing dust particles, pet allergens, odors and smoke

Environmental Illness In Your Home2. Asbestos Roofing: Asbestos is not a problem if is in good condition. It is recommended to cover the material. If the roof is broken, you may inhale asbestos particles.These particles lodge in the lungs and may increase the risk of cáncer. When we bought our first apartment I noticed that the roof was corrugated, it had a different texture.

I asked the realtor and he said , all the houses and apartments in Florida that were build during the 80’s have this king of roof. If I wanted to remove it I had to ask permission from the city, the building, neighbors and all the heavenly court. I decided not to, and how I regret it.

3. Rugs: It is important to use a durable coating, easy to clean rug. I prefer wood flooring, ceramic or marble. You can find now organic flax, which can be used instead of carpet, rugs made of natural and untreated cotton or wool. Must take into account that most carpets have been treated with chemicals including fire retardants, fungicides and pesticidas.the carpets “scatter” add heat the room.

Keep the house clean is a priority above all traffic areas to achieve a reduction of soil pollution, dust and pollen.

4. Mold: These microscopic organisms are fungi that grow on organic matter and can trigger asthma attacks, lung diseases, among others, in children and adults. When these organisms grow and are large enough, are visible. They reproduce by spores that travel long distances.

They can be found in dark, humid and warm, they need moisture to live.Basements, bathrooms, tree bark, fallen leaves, and poorly ventilated spaces are your favorite places.

5. Pesticides: if it kills a bug, don’t you think that can kill you? Sure, but slowly.

6. Air Fresheners: if they kill odors, they can kill you too.


Five facts about Sun Exposure:

It’s summer time and we know it’s time to take care of yourself. Your skin , your hair , your eyes, all your body is exposed to ultra violet rays .
Sometimes the products we have over the counter are not what we think.

So it’s important to know some facts about sun exposure:

1. UV rays also reflect off of surfaces like water, cement, sand, and snow.
2. Most sun protection products work by absorbing, reflecting, or scattering sunlight. They contain chemicals that interact with the skin to protect it from UV rays. All products do not have the same ingredients; if your skin reacts badly to one product, try another one or call a doctor.
3. Sun exposure damages the eyes as well as the skin.
4. Some medications increase the skin's sensitivity to UV rays. As a result, even kids with skin that tends not to burn easily can develop a severe sunburn in just minutes when taking certain medications. Fair-skinned kids, of course, are even more vulnerable.
5. Clothing provides very little protection from extended stays in the sun.

1. Use Sunscreen Properly: You should always use sunscreen when enduring prolonged exposure in the sun. Safe sunscreens not only protect your skin from sun damage and cancer, but also come free of suspect chemicals, like parabens, oxybenzone, PABA and retinyl palmitate.
2. Always wear a natural lip balm (no filler oils) with an SPF 15 or higher – remember that your lips can burn just like the rest of your skin.
3. Find sun protection fabrics for your clothes: Most sun protective fabrics (also called SPF fabric) are tightly woven/knit and may (or may not) be chemically treated with UV inhibitors. Fabrics from cotton to polyester are used, with the most common being nylon.
4. Use Polarized lenses with UV protection: Polarized lenses reduce glare. Unless they're specifically treated with UV coating, polarized lenses don't offer UV protection.
5. Find the best beach umbrella!

Is snoring imposible to cure?

Most of the women I know who sleep next to a man complains that her partners snores. A “male” friend also confessed to me that his wife emits sounds during sleep.
Snoring is to me unbearable.

About 45% of normal adults snore at least occasionally, and 25% are habitual snorers. Snoring is more common disease in men and overweight people, usually worsens with age.

Common causes of snoring

  • Age. As you reach middle age and beyond, your throat becomes narrower, and the muscle tone in your throat decreases.
  • The way you’re built. Men have narrower air passages than women and are more likely to snore. A narrow throat, a cleft palate, enlarged adenoids, and other physical attributes that contribute to snoring are often hereditary.
  • Nasal and sinus problems. Blocked airways make inhalation difficult and create a vacuum in the throat, leading to snoring.
  • Being overweight or out of shape. Fatty tissue and poor muscle tone contribute to snoring.
  • Alcohol, smoking, and medications. Alcohol intake, smoking, and certain medications can increase muscle relaxation leading to more snoring.
  • Sleep posture. Sleeping flat on your back causes the flesh of your throat to relax and block the airway.

What can you do?:

  • Lose weight. Losing even a little bit of weight can reduce fatty tissue in the back of the throat and decrease or even stop snoring.
  • Exercise can also help to stop snoring. Working out to tone your arms, legs, and abs, for example, also leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring.
  • Quit smoking. If you smoke, your chances of snoring are high. Smoking causes airways to be blocked by irritating the membranes in the nose and throat.
  • Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives, especially before bedtime, because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing. Talk to your doctor about any prescription medications you’re taking, as some encourage a deeper level of sleep which can make snoring worse.
  • Establish regular sleep patterns. Create a bedtime ritual with your partner and stick to it. Hitting the sack in a routine way together can help you sleep better and often minimize snoring.
