Due to the fact that CBD produced promising results in a variety of mental disorders, specialists wonder if it could help ADHD patients as well. Considering that when ADHD is present in the brain of a person, the signs are elevated cortisol levels and low dopamine levels. Which explains the constant state of irritation and […]CBD Oil and ADHD

I cant get to my acupunture sessions and I am missing the benefits of the treatment so after my sister telling me how wonderful these mats were I thought I would buy one for myself.
It is probably too early to say as I have only used it a couple of times and yes I feel and look like a giant pin cushion but my shoulder pain seems to have diminished and I must admit the first 5 minutes I lay on it I felt my tension melting away. I will still go to visit my acupuncturist as nothing can beat a real session but in the mean time I will use this mat as a new part of my daily routine. I actually practiced my breathing meditation whilst lying on this mat so maybe that should be my new daily habit.
I have not managed to stand on mine yet as its mega painful, but i pop it on the floor and rest my feet on it. I will work up to this level eventually but for now I am pretty pleased with this.
Memory performance decreases with increasing age. Cannabis can reverse these ageing processes in the brain. This was shown in mice by scientists at the University of Bonn with their colleagues at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel). Old animals were able to regress to the state of two-month-old mice with a prolonged low-dose treatment with […]Study Suggests – Cannabis reverses aging processes in the brains
This article is taken from my Higher Nature herbal Account and it is help and advice on how you may want to boost your immune system. Prevention is better than cure.
There is a range of immune supporting supplements and I am sure you are aware of the most common ones, namely vitamins C, D, zinc and probiotics. However, there are also several other nutrients that are less well known but are particularly supportive of the immune system such as olive leaf extract, beta – (1,3-1,6) – D-glucans and grapefruit seed extract.
Vitamin C is widely researched in its ability to regulate the immune system and has long been used for the treatment of colds and flu. It has been found to shorten the length of a cold and in trials was shown to prevent pneumonia. A number of studies have also demonstrated its anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. (2)
Vitamin D plays a large role in the health of the body and especially in boosting immunity. As many of your clients may be deficient, especially during the winter months, supplementation is always advised for everyone. A deficiency has been implicated in immune system dysfunction and optimal doses have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects as well as enhancing the natural substances in the body that help fight infection, according to one 2018 study. (3) The British Medical Journal also found that supplementing with Vitamin D reduced the risk of respiratory infections. (4)
Also well known in supporting immune function, zinc helps regulate the pathways between the immune cells and is known for being both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant as reported in Nutrients journal. (5) It plays a key role in the body and deficiency has been implicated in many illnesses. (6)
Beta – (1,3-1,6) – D-glucans is branded as Wellmune® which is derived from a proprietary blend of yeast known Saccharomyces cerevisiae, with many research studies to demonstrate its effectiveness on immunity. It works in the body by helping to prime the immune system by binding to the immune cells. This means that any pathogen is identified and killed off more quickly. A study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition showed that supplementing with Beta – (1,3-1,6) – D-glucans can reduce the duration and severity of respiratory tract infections. (7) In addition a 2010 study also showed a reduction on both upper respiratory tract symptoms as well as an improved mood state and increased energy levels. (8) Not only do they help support the immune system but may also help with your clients suffering from higher levels of stress, especially with the current fears felt by many people at the moment.
Olive leaf extract is a lesser known supplement which may also assist immune function. Oleuropein is a polyphenolic compound from the leaves of the olive tree. It is thought to have many health promoting benefits, specifically anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activities, as reported in the Journal of Medicinal Food. (9) Another study in Scientia Pharmaceutica reviewed its pharmacological components, showing it to have anti-viral properties. (10).
We know that good health begins in the gut with 70% of our immune system located in the microbiome. Probiotics will provide extra support to optimise gut health and keep the immune system functioning well. A study in BioMed Research International suggested that probiotics have the ability to prevent certain pathologies and certain strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium play important roles in immunity by potentiating the function of natural killer cells in the body. (11)
Grapefruit seed extract, available in liquid form to be diluted with water, is also known to have a variety of uses. A study in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine that it may be effective particularly as an anti-fungal, anti-microbial and anti-viral (12). It has also shown to be effective as a disinfectant agent against some bacteria and viruses, according to a 2019 study. (13)
Colloidal Silver is thought to have antibacterial properties due to its silver ions which bind to the DNA of bacteria and preventing them from spreading. Before the invention of antibiotics, it was used to treat and prevent infections.
Diet and lifestyle approaches
As with all nutritional protocols, the approach has to be multi-faceted. Even though supplements are important, they work alongside the diet and lifestyle in helping your clients to stay well and maximise their immune system function. Encourage a wide range of vegetables and fruits to ensure the benefits of the vitamins and minerals they have to offer, alongside whole grains and good sources of protein, which helps provide the amino acids needed to build immune cells. It may also be helpful to include turmeric and garlic in the diet as both may have immune boosting properties. Turmeric, specifically its compound curcumin, has been used in Eastern medicine for centuries due to its health promoting benefits. It has grown in popularity in recent years as a supplement and has been shown to play an important role in preventing and treating various illnesses, according to a 2017 study. (14) Garlic is also known to contain properties that may have a positive role on the immunity of the body. One study in the Journal of Nutrition showed that when consumed as a supplement for a 90 day period, it reduced the symptoms of cold and flu. (15)
Consumption of refined carbohydrates, sugar and alcohol should be minimal as they are highly inflammatory and can lower the body’s defences.
In terms of lifestyle, adequate rest is essential for the immune system as it gives the body time to repair so ensure your clients implement good sleep hygiene. At times like these, when stress levels tend to be high, encouraging relaxation activities and taking steps to lower stress is just as important in helping to stay well and bolster immunity.
