Epsom salts are used by many people every day for dozens of diseases and problems. In this post, I will explore ten huge benefits of using Epsom salts.
Epsom salts have been used for hundreds of years, come from Epsom in the southeast of England. Epsom salts are composed of magnesium and sulfates that can have some amazing benefits if used correctly.
It may be a little known fact that the magnesium sulfate found in Epsom salt is absorbed through your skin!
Time to relax
When we feel stressed, magnesium levels in the body are depleted. Epsom salts help replenish magnesium by taking a hot bath by immersing ourselves in them. Magnesium in salts helps the body produce high levels of serotonin, which is the chemical in antidepressants. The above properties of Epsom salts help the body to function properly, and can also help with concentration levels.
We have already seen that Epsom salts can help us to relax and rest, therefore, you may be surprised to discover that salts also help produce adenosine triphosphate, which is a natural chemical in the body that increases energy.
Alleviate the pain
Epsom salts have some of the same medical properties as anti-inflammatory, which can help with cramping problems and relieves the body’s natural pain.
There is also a natural neutralizer in Epsom salts that helps them (when mixed with water) to prevent foot odor.
Remove Dead Skin
When mixed with either olive oil or bath oils, Epsom salts can help remove areas of accumulated dead skin. Never leave the salts on the skin for a long time, once you have left the bathroom make sure to rinse the salts.
Good with Shampoo
If you have oily hair, adding the right amount of salts can help with the treatment. It can also help to add thickness to fine hair with Epsom salts.
Stops potential blood clots
Due to its relaxation properties, it is believed that Epsom salts can help in the prevention of blood clots because blood pressure drops naturally.
The salts contribute to increase the water in the intestines that can help with problems of constipation, however, since you have to take the salts for this to be effective, you should make sure that you consult with a specialist before using the salts.
Not only Epsom salts help the human body, but it can also help with the growth and maturity of plants. The natural properties of magnesium salts help with the development of chlorophyll, and the sulfur properties of the salts help the plant absorb healthier elements of the food.
As you can see in the previous points, Epsom salts can help many of the daily problems. At this current time in the western world, tablets are usually a quick solution, when the reality is that the solution may be in a product that has existed for hundreds of years. With Epsom salts on the side or as a substitute for medication, you can make sure that your problems can be eradicated quickly and effectively.

If you have chronic pain, stiffness, acidity, insomnia, nervous disorders or digestive problems, you should read this article.
We live in the times when the use of coffee has become a habit in more than 80% of the world of people.
Coffee is one of the most commercialized drinks in the world and most people take it without knowing its consequences for health and especially for people with Fibromyalgia.
Next, I want to explain how coffee affects your health in an undesirable way.
Lately the coffee that is used in most countries, is transgenic.
A transgenic product (genetically modified) is a tremendously toxic product for your cellulars, because it changes your genetics and this is related to all the chronic imbalances.
A part coffee is a product that produces an excess of acidity in your body (not only speak of the stomach). With coffee your PH becomes acid and your defenses use the minerals of your bones to balance this acidity (minerals are alkaline).
Because of this theft of minerals from your bones, there is a deficiency of minerals in both bones and joints and this, of course, you feel pain and stiffness.
Besides, the acidity generated by coffee generates inflammation and where there is pain, there is inflammation and where there is inflammation, there is pain.
Coffee blocks some digestive enzymes and makes digestion more difficult.
When digestion becomes incomplete, putrefaction and fermentation occurs in your intestine and as a result your intestine becomes more prone to infections by fungi, parasites and bacteria.
Coffee for caffeine excites your nervous system, but without giving you any valuable nutrients in return. That is as if when you have instead of eating something, you take a pill that takes away your appetite.
Coffe depletes your reserves of vital nutrients and your organism and the nervous system are altered chronically.
Coffee for caffeine and the deficiency of nutrients that causes, creates nervous imbalance that affects your sleep.
The body is renewed and repaired while we sleep. According to the scientists, an insufficient sleep causes the body not to repair itself, does not detoxify and thus accelerates cellular aging and the defenses go down.
Now surely you think you could have decaffeinated coffee. Well let me tell you that decaffeinated coffee is a product that undergoes a chemical alteration process that in the long run can be worse than normal coffee.
The decaffeinated coffee is a substance even more altered and foreign to the body and its harmful effects we will know in a few years.
If you have symptoms of Fibromyalgia, you should already opt for a much healthier way of life and stay away from all the substances not compatible with your body.
The gift of health is something we have to take care of and pamper, when you stop doing it, you approach the disease.

It is recommended that we introduce in our diet foods with diuretic properties to facilitate the elimination of fluids and excess sodium that are related to hypertension
High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the most frequent cardiovascular problems among the world population, also known as the “silent killer” because of the way it develops in the body.
According to the data revealed by the American Heart Association, one in three adults suffers from high blood pressure, that is, at least one third of those who inhabit the planet.
The high rate of diagnoses of this disease has turned on alerts in all corners of the world, especially because many people are unaware of their risks and do not treat them properly.
Given this, the main health entities constantly promote healthy living habits and try to provide all kinds of information in this regard.
Being aware of the risks of suffering from hypertension is one of the first measures to initiate a control and treatment. Having that clear, it is good to know some supports to reduce it naturally and not have to limit exclusively to the consumption of drugs.
A handful of raw almonds every day can help control the pressure thanks to its supply of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, which reduce cholesterol levels and improve heart function.
The fact of being a rich source of fat and calories does not mean that they influence weight gain; In fact, the fat they contain is considered healthy and could contribute to increase muscle mass.
It is delicious, refreshing and perfect to hydrate in those days of intense heat where you usually lose more fluids.
It contains a good amount of potassium, electrolytes and other nutrients that could help reduce high blood pressure.
In a study published in the West Indian Medical Journal, he found that drinking coconut water can help regulate blood pressure, both when it’s high and when it’s low.
Patients with high blood pressure who ingested coconut water had a reduction of up to 71%, while those with low blood pressure regulated it by up to 29%.
Valued for its high content of fiber and essential nutrients, oatmeal is another of those natural remedies that could lower high blood pressure.
A study carried out by researchers from the University of Columbia (United States) determined that the consumption of oat cereals can help reduce cholesterol levels by up to 5%.
Likewise, in this study it was discovered that it influences the control of hypertension and the prevention of heart diseases.
Turmeric has gained an important place as a healing remedy due to the anti-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory action that curcumin gives it, its active compound.
Its high power to decrease the inflammation of the body is one of its main benefits since, in turn, it helps to control high blood pressure and other inflammatory-type problems.
When taken with black pepper can have a vasodilator effect, ideal to improve circulation and keep the arterial walls clean. As if that were not enough, it also acts as a natural anticoagulant, which helps regulate blood flow.
Lemon and parsley smoothie
Daily consumption of this smoothie can help to reduce high blood pressure thanks to its diuretic effect.
Both lemon and parsley contain important nutrients that facilitate the elimination of liquids and excess sodium, associated with increased pressure.
1 lemon with peel
1 bunch of parsley
1 glass of water (200 ml)
Split the lemon into several pieces with its shell and place it in a blender with the bunch of parsley and the glass of water.
Process a few seconds, strain and take on an empty stomach.
It is one of the largest sources of potassium, essential mineral for people who need to control their blood pressure levels.
For this purpose it is recommended to eat at least 2 servings of banana a day and support it with a healthy diet.
Raw garlic concentrates a very important amount of nutrients that since ancient times have been valued in natural medicine.
Eating between one and two cloves of crushed garlic a day can help keep hypertension at bay thanks to its sulfur compounds that promote good blood circulation and lower blood pressure.

Many people who suffer from allergies, simply and simply hear about hay fever and suffer similar symptoms claim that they also suffer from hay fever, ignoring that there are many allergens that produce the same symptoms, so it is best to consult to an allergist who will help you find out exactly what caused your allergy. It may not be a pollen allergy, it could be due to mites or even cigarette smoke.
The fight against allergens
Fighting against allergens is extremely difficult, but that’s it or letting yourself be overcome by all the symptoms of allergies. To be successful in that fight, there are a few tips that I hope you will find useful: it is important to wash the bedding with hot water every two weeks, so that it not only eliminates, but also destroys all the accumulated debris in the clothes, try to find products for pest control that are not toxic but that completely eliminate the cockroaches, if you like and use the Hermes, Cartier or Dior perfumes, try to think about the possibility of eradicating them completely from your body, as well as perfumed milk and all kinds of beauty products that include in their composition synthetic elements, their chemical components as well as irritate the skin, can cause hormonal disorders and even neurological damage.
Symptoms of allergies are induced by an abnormal tissue response when exposed to a selected antigen, also considered as allergens. If all of the body’s tissues react to a selected antigen, the allergic response becomes active and begins to show results throughout the body. Allergic reactions can occur in almost any part of the body. There is a wide variety of circumstances and substances of how allergic reactions can be induced, understanding the mechanism that makes them jump can help to select the remedy for allergy symptoms. Some of which consist of dust, animal hair, cosmetics, serums, medications, heat, sunlight, and a variety of foods. The frequent meals that allergic reactions offer are milk, eggs, seafood, oranges, strawberries, tomatoes and chocolates.
Most of the time, allergy symptoms can not be prevented from causing havoc, but there are numerous treatments that can be applied to treat such symptoms. Fruit consumption may be the fastest way to treat symptoms of generalized allergy.
The signs of allergy can offer various signs and symptoms based on a particular person and their tolerance toward it. Generalized allergic signs such as dizziness, headaches, nervousness, depression, irritability, hay fever, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, asthma, and swelling of the eyes. Obtaining your own first aid kit with anti-allergy properties is a good idea for men and women who are susceptible to allergic reactions. This kit should include the regulatory treatments for allergies and so react quickly to an eventuality of this type.
The lime is an excellent remedy for allergy symptoms that can be obtained quickly and with satisfactory results, eliminates harmful toxins from the organism, as well as acting as an anti-allergic agent. Half of a lime squeezed and mixed with a glass of Water and honey is a mixture that in some people has given good results to treat some types of allergies.
A banana a day can be very good for people who suffer from allergy symptoms in food, asthma and skin rashes. With due caution since some people have shown to be very delicate to this fruit.
The carrot and cucumber juice has benefited a group of people in the treatment of allergy symptoms. A part of cucumber in 3 parts of carrot juice in your daily diet will provide the necessary benefits against allergy.
The remedies for the aforementioned allergy symptoms have benefited many people. These treatments are rather preventive and increase resistance to certain allergy symptoms. However, if a certain type of allergy persists, after trying these popular remedies, it is best to consult your general practitioner

Cereals are an extraordinary and balanced food, ideal not only for breakfast, but also for lunch or dinner. But when we talk about cereals, we talk about those that come out of the earth and that do not look anything like that infamous thing that appears in a colorful box in the supermarket
We explain some convincing reasons to avoid box cereals altogether, be they “special I do not know what” or “special light I do not know how many”. We also explain how to make a real healthy breakfast with real cereals.
Before entering fully into the matter, we only expose an idea that we consider to be of great common sense. Cereals are an extraordinary food but … Can we really call these colored balls cereals to feed our sons and daughters? How is that like a grain of rice? Where does the color come from? How is the taste of wheat similar to those brown cereal sticks with “low fat” chocolate?
What do the box cereals contain?
Depending on the type and brand, cash cereals usually contain:
Sugar: Especially box cereals for boys and girls and “normal”, that is, those that are not “special I do not know what” or “light” or “low in sugar” (these contain even worse things). The first thing we have to be clear is that the most abundant ingredient in many of them is, in addition to gluten, huge amounts of refined sugar.
Gluten: All box cereals made from wheat, oats, rye or barley contain gluten. We recommend you read our article “Wheat, poison in the diet” to know the many damages of gluten (not only in people with celiac disease but in the whole world) according to the interesting currents of active cellular nutrition (with which we totally agree) .
Corn: Almost all the corn produced in the world is transgenic (see our transgenic report) and our enzymes have serious problems to metabolize genetically altered structures. It is not that they do not know, they do what they can, generating serious disturbances in the organism (we recommend that you read the fabulous book “the truth about transgenics” by the French minister Corine Lepage … it will make your hair stand on end.
Synthetic Sweeteners: In our opinion (and increasingly that of more independent professionals from large multinationals), synthetic sweeteners are some of the most dangerous additives that exist, especially aspartame, suspected of producing rare types of brain cancer (see our report about aspartame and this list of safe and dangerous additives.
Nothing: Cash cereals contain, basically, a lot of nothing. That is, a completely processed product with a minimum amount of essential nutrients and additives. That is why, many times, they are forced to introduce added vitamins and minerals, which is completely absurd, since natural cereals contain vitamins and minerals. Look at the nonsense: they refine them, they take away everything good, and then they add it artificially … Are we crazy? Just to have an appetizing appearance and produce desire to eat a lot, because its flavor is irresistible thanks to certain additives.
It is true that, depending on the brands, the box cereals may contain more fiber (which is healthy), and may be more or less processed and therefore contain more or less nutrients, almost always very inadequate, and especially accompanied by:
Sugar + gluten + additives
Sugar + transgenics + additives
Synthetic sweeteners + gluten or transgenics + additives
What do real cereals contain?
The real cereals (not those that come in box) contain a series of essential and very healthy nutrients that, combined with other foods that we will see right away, provide a complete ration of essential nutrients to start the day with energy and health:
Proteins: Cereals contain a certain amount of proteins, although they do not contain all the essential amino acids, so it is important to add other foods that contain them in order to form a protein of high biological value. The best and healthiest to make this sum are the seeds and nuts.
Carbohydrates and fiber: The cereals contain carbohydrates of slow absorption (that is to say, of the good ones, those that provide energy and do not get fat) and a lot of fiber (essential to keep healthy the intestinal flora).
Fats: Hardly contain fats, although the few they contain are not saturated. Healthy fats that are necessary (essential fatty acids from the omega family) are also obtained from seeds and nuts.
Vitamins, minerals and other essential elements: Cereals, naturally, contain in their composition certain vitamins, minerals and other elements that contribute to the efficiency of our metabolism and general physiology. It is true that cereals do not contain enough of these elements. To provide enough vitamins and minerals, there is no better source than, at another time of the day, take plenty of vegetables, vegetables and greens (more vegetable than fruit, to avoid sugar), because they are the natural elements that more vitamins and minerals they contain.
Organic box cereals
In the stores of ecological products we also find cereals of box, or cereals in bags, but also with them we must be careful.
Likewise, although they are not transgenic, they contain gluten and often also large amounts of sugar.
If you are going to buy box cereals in a super organic, make sure they have little sugar (it would be better if they had stevia sweetener, since it is the healthiest natural sweetener of all).
Try not also to choose wheat, barley, or rye. Oatmeal is somewhat healthier, since it has many nutritional properties, but unfortunately it also has gluten (although less than the others mentioned above). If you are going to consume oats, better in moderation, from time to time.
The best cereals
First of all, we recommend that, among all the cereals, you choose rice in the first place. Rice is the cereal most consumed by all civilizations ; is the cereal that is recommended when we are sick in the stomach (for something will be) … Why not consume it even if we are not sick or ill?
Rice is the cereal that has been least genetically transformed and, therefore, is the one that best assimilate our enzymes (essential for health in general). It does not carry gluten and is the most digestive (see our article on the importance of consuming rice.
Other cereals that are also very healthy due to their characteristics (they do not have gluten) are buckwheat (which is not wheat, even if it is called that), millet and quinoa.

The problems of self-esteem are much more frequent than we imagined, so we would like to talk to you today about how to feel better on a day-to-day basis without having to leave the routine. Follow our advice and start to be happy.
Many times, in the midst of work, family life, haste, stress and routine, we have the feeling of not being happy and that in order to be able to be happy we will need great things. But this is not the case at all. Today we want you to learn how to feel better and how to raise your self-esteem on a daily basis simply by changing and adding certain very simple habits to your day-to-day life. Are you ready?
How to feel better by changing the perspective
We know that wellness is not a matter of magic and that it will not change from one day to the next, but we are also aware that with a small change in the perspective we have towards life, many things can change for the better. Many times the reality we see is the result of our own head: do not forget that you can decide how to see life and how to face it daily.
Enjoy the small things
First of all, you should avoid the thought that you need great things to be happy, because it is not true. Focus on the little things of everyday life and enjoy them: a coffee with your friends, sleep and wake up without alarm, watch a sunset, sound the song you expected while you have the playlist in random, the smell to coffee in the morning, go shopping and see that the dress you have been looking for months is lowered, go out and make the sun, or just realize that you have many more reasons than you thought to be happy. And how are you, many more things that happen to us every day and of which we do not usually be aware.
Accept what you feel
The “everything has a positive side” may be true, and that is what you have to set yourself to avoid low self-esteem, even negative events take you a good learning that can be useful in another moment of life.
However, no matter how hard you try to focus on positive things, there are inevitably times when you feel worse. Do not repress or fight against them, allow yourself to feel bad at some point, body and mind also need to download. You must learn to live with it and to see these moments as a way of mental liberation, a new opportunity to start over with the knowledge learned.
Become your priority
On the other hand, one of the strong points when learning how to recover self-esteem is to know ourselves, take care of ourselves and pamper us. You are the one who always accompanies you, so treat yourself well, think about all the qualities you have and empower them, make yourself happy. It is very important that you keep a little bit of time each day for yourself, to carry out the activities that you like the most and with which you feel comfortable and fulfilled. That will help you feel good. In addition, just as we said that we have to learn to live with moments of sadness, we must also do it with our faults, the trick is to know and accept us as we are.
Live here and now
Finally, remember that the only true reality is the present, do not waste your time remembering negative things from the past or overwhelming yourself for what will come. The past is already done and we do not have the power to control what will happen. The best thing is that, always according to your values and interests, you set some goals, but some realistic goals that start today. Go for them with decision.
The daily routine of happiness
As we have been saying, it is not necessary to leave our routine to get happy. How to feel better doing the same as always? you will ask yourself. Well surely it is much simpler than you think. Follow this routine that we propose below and you will see how every day you are a little bit happier. The goal of our routine is that, every day, when you return to bed again, you feel that it has been a good day, despite your “not so good” things. You see? This is also changing the perspective. Do not forget the enormous power that language has over things, the way to put them.
In the morning…
To start, put the alarm clock a little earlier than usual, so you’ll have time to carry out all the beauty rituals and take breakfast more quietly and without haste. Waking up with little time produces unnecessary stress from morning, which will make the day start worse than it should. Simply moving the alarm a little forward we can enjoy more peacefully every morning action before leaving home on the way to work. Do not forget to smile! It seems silly, but making a small effort to smile more has a huge impact on our mood throughout the day.
After breakfast, a good shower and the rituals of beauty that we like the most, it’s time to leave home and start the day to the fullest. To do this, put your favorite music on the way to work and enjoy each song. You can also take the opportunity to say good morning to your closest relatives or friends. We are social beings and being in contact with the people we love always suits us.
Once at work, try to be nice to everyone and accept things as they come. Do not take on more responsibilities than necessary and remember “dress me slowly I’m in a hurry”. Organize yourself well and you will see how there is time for everything and things will turn out better. It is also very important, within the possibilities of each one, to carry out a job that we like, with which to feel fulfilled.
Another of the essential things that you must take into account to discover how to feel better is food. A varied and balanced diet will make your body healthy and function normally, and therefore will make you generally feel better too. Avoid overly heavy meals that will lead to a more sedentary life. Even if you eat at work, try to bring homemade food, much better for your health and also for your pocket.
In the afternoon…
But not everything is to work, you also have to clear up. So, once your working day is over, dedicate time to yourself. A good way to end the tensions of the day is to perform at least half an hour of daily physical exercise. Also, get in touch with your friends, chat and disconnect. Telling your friends or relatives what you have done during the day, what worries you, worries you or makes you illusion, will make you relish a bit of pressure from your mind.
Once back home, you can take a relaxing shower before dinner. The end of the day has come, what has not been so bad? The dinner should be light, since this way you will sleep better and rest more, so that you wake up strongly to start your routine again. Remember that it is advisable to let at least one hour pass between dinner and the time you go to bed. During that time, you can enjoy your favorite series or movie or read a book, for example. It is very important that you take into account the schedules, so you can organize to do everything you want and sleep between 7 and 8 hours a day, which is the time the body needs to be fully rested.
Already in bed, before falling asleep, make a mental review of everything that has happened in the day, always focusing on the positive things and taking a teaching of those that are a little more negative. Positive thinking before sleep greatly influences the quality of sleep. Avoid thinking about the next day, since that will only make you feel overwhelmed by the things you have to do and, in reality, it does not make sense. Remember that you must “think in the present”, and your present is now your bed.
Now that you know how to feel better on a day to day basis, what is easier than you thought? Put all this into practice and you will see how your self-esteem and your well-being do not stop improving.
