First of all, I want to state that I am not in any way, shape or form trying to suggest replacing prescription medicine with these natural ingredients. This site promotes balance in all activities, so keep moderation in mind if you decide to use any of these ingredients in your diet! These ingredients might be available at your local herbalist shop, where you can consult with someone regarding your objectives.

1. Boost your system with echinacea

I personally use it in tea 🙂

Echinacea is an active ingredient in cold medicines. You can use dried echinacea in your tea, especially when feeling healthy!
Why ? Because echinacea is also a potent lymphagogue, which increases the formation and flow of lymph. Blood has the heart which helps is promote flow, however there are no vital organs to promote the flow of lymph fluid.

Potential Benefits: high in antioxidants, great for immune system, may reduce low blood sugar and anxiety, anti-inflammatory and more!

Potential Side effects: Appear to be safe and well-tolerated for short-term use. However some have experienced itchy skin, rashes, stomach pains and nausea.

2. Boost your immune system with Tulsi

Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil – presents great health benefits. If you enjoy the smell of basil, then wait until you smell holy basil ! I find it adds a boost of flavour in my tea.

Potential Benefits: Tulsi can help reduce fevers, relieve respiratory disorders/asthma, prevent lung disorders and heart diseases. It can also help combat against infections.

Potential Side effects: Prolonged use and heavy doses can negatively affect the liver, thin blood, affect sleep and cause fatigue.

3. Stinging Nettle for immune system boost

I personally use it in tea 🙂

Nettle is a natural plant that grows in the wild. A colleague of mine once told me that she had stinging nettle growing in her backyard! How amazing is that !?

Potential Benefits: Nettle is packed with healthy nutrients and vitamins. It may help reduce inflammation, treat hay fever, lower blood pressure and more.

Potential Side effects: Are considered very low, however you might need to empty your bladder more frequently 🙂

4. Horsetail to boost your immune system

I first heard of Horsetail as a great way to strengthen hair and nails because of its richness in calcium, amongst other nutrients. Horsetail has antibacterial and antiseptic properties which may help with inflammation.

Potential Benefits: Horsetail might help reduce inflammation, strengthen bones, better respiratory issues and promote hair growth – to name a few.

Potential Side effects: It is not recommended to use Horsetail on a long term basis. It may also interfere with certain medication.

5. Turmeric for immune system boost

I personally use it in homemade juices and vinagrettes 🙂

Turmeric is a flashy orange spice often used in Indian cuisine. I first started using turmeric in juices. Just like cutting raw beets can stain your hands red, turmeric does the same with orange. It’s considered a superfood that has major benefits for your body and brain.

Potential Benefits: It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, increases the body’s antioxidant capacity, improves brain function. It can also help with depression, alzheimer’s and arthritis.

Potential Side effects: depending on intake, it could lead to upset stomach, nausea, diarrhea and dizziness.

I’m not an expert in this field, however I am curious to discover natural and healthier ways to improve my health. I believe these suggestions may not be for everyone, so I do urge you to review with your physician or herbalist clerk.

I also highly recommend further exploring ‘The Lost Book of Remedies’ with Dr. Nicole Apelian. My curiosity for natural health products came around the same time as I started watching the TV show ‘Alone’. This is when Dr. Nicole Apelian opened my eyes further.

Yoga Burn Review

Yoga Burn Review, 5 reasons why you should sign up

Perfect Mother's Day Gift

Here are 5 reasons to sign up for Yoga Burn

  1. The Starter Kit
  2. Room to Grow (no matter your level)
  3. Accessible from Home (while gyms are closed)
  4. Very Affordable and Great Value
  5. Motivational (results based)

In this Yoga Burn Review blog, I’ll indicate 5 reasons why you should sign up. Especially if you are a woman, between the ages of 18-65, physically active or not. Also, it doesn’t matter if you’ve done Yoga in the past !

Did I pique your interest ? Well then, read on !

Yoga Burn Starter Kit

The first reason to consider Yoga Burn is their Free Starter Kit. This is perfect for those already knowledgeable about Yoga and for newcomers as well.

What’s included ?

A 1 month follow along-from-home Yoga DVD. It’s perfect for women who are interested in yoga or are relatively new to yoga. With it, you can start mastering the fundamentals and techniques right from the comfort of your own home.

You might want to hurry as it’s for a limited time only !

No matter your level, There’s room to Grow !

Yoga Burn is designed for women between the ages of 18-65. The large age bracket alone is proof that it’s for just about anyone. Whether you’re just getting started (absolute beginners to fitness) or have been previously working out with yoga.

This challenge can be equally as effective for women that have been into fitness and yoga their whole lives.

Space at home, the size of your Mat

All you need to get started, besides the obvious program, is enough space at home for your Yoga mat ! So, if you’re like me in a 3 1/2 (650 sq feet) condo, you’ll easily find space in your bedroom or living-room.

It’s also a great way to stay in shape during this Stay at Home quarantine!

Yoga Burn Review

Very affordable and Great Value

No matter the program you choose at Yoga Burn, it’ll surely be inferior to your current annual gym or yoga membership.

On the low-end, a gym membership can run $30/months = $360/year. Alternatively, I’ve heard of Yoga memberships going upwards of $1,000 per year!

There’s currently a limited discount offer on the Ultimate Package ($80+), plus free shipping.

Also consider, when you do sign up at a gym there’s no way they offer a free money back guarantee if you decide to change your mind. With Yoga Burn, you have the peace of mind with a 60 DAY Iron-Clad 100% Money Back Guarantee. That alone should get rid of any insecurities you might have.

Motivational and Great Satisfaction

Lastly, for this Yoga Burn Review. I think we all get a great sense of satisfaction and pride when we accomplish something great. Whether it’s graduating school, making a sale or seeing our kids move our of the house. If you think about it, first we’re not really alone when we accomplish these things, mainly because of our support system that surround us. At times, we were probably like training wheels to a bike, receiving light help and nudges in the right directly.

Visualize success for starters

How do you see yourself after your first 14 days or month challenge using Yoga Burn ? Imagine doing Yoga poses you’ve never thought possible! Imagine how, with your home Yoga routine, you can work out at home – lose weight – and feel better about yourself. All because you took the first step in the right direction !

Thanks for reading this review and stay tuned for more Review Blogs !

Until then, stay safe 🙂
