The Truth About Superfoods

Superfoods are quite the rave these days. Every month, there seems to be a new super fruit or vegetable that you may have never seen or even heard of before. Their amazing benefits are often touted in such a way that they seem more than super. They actually seem magical!

Superfoods

The truth is, there is no superfood that will give you magical powers. Sorry to burst your bubble! Most superfoods are truly amazing but, individually, they are limited. The key is to incorporate an abundance of these foods in your daily diet. Your body needs a variety of healthy foods in order to thrive and achieve real wellness.

That doesn’t mean that you have to go on an exotic and expensive grocery trip to pick up sacha inchi, salsify and maca. The good news is that most superfoods are inexpensive and commonly found either in your own garden or in your local produce market. Try adding a variety of these common superfoods to a green smoothie to super charge your daily nutrition.

“Ebola is in the news everywhere and on everyone’s minds. Fear and concern seem to be a common thread. Each day we tune into the news to see the status of the latest victim or the progression of the disease. We saw an article the other day entitled, “Are Rental Cars Safe from the Ebola Virus“. All this talk about a deadly virus can be frightening.

“What we need to remember though is, ebola is a virus just like the flu virus. Sure, the effects of this particular virus can be devastating but it is still just a virus. What’s the point? Ebola isn’t something that God didn’t design the body to be able to defend against. The problem is that most people have weakened their defenses – or shall we say they have weakened their immune system.”

In Search of Ebola Cures: Chinese Medicine, Western Herbs, Sanitizing Chemicals and Immune Boosting Strategies

The international Ebola outbreak has caused a wave of alarm among people who are concerned it might spread to their own city or nation. It’s a legitimate concern, given that the government of Liberia has already issued a desperate plea for international help after declaring the pandemic “[beyond] the control of the national government.”(1)

In search of Ebola cures

Here at Natural News, we’re being flooded with requests from people asking whether any natural cures exist to kill Ebola. In short, there are no proven natural cures for Ebola, but there are some extremely valuable herbal formulas which may be lifesavers. There are also some valuable immune boosting strategies detailed here which can save many lives. Here’s what we know so far:

It means becoming aware that attitudes and emotions influence our health. It means taking responsibility for our attitudes, and making the commitment to change the negative ones. No matter what attitudes our parents, friends, or associates influenced us with, or what our life experiences have been, we are still responsible for our own attitudes. We are the only ones who can change them. Blaming others gets us nowhere except into a rut. Taking personal responsibility for where we are in life is the first step toward improving our attitudes.”

7 Superb Superfoods to Power Up Your Life [Infographic]

Eating healthy is almost synonymous to staying healthy. Almost 80 percent of the positive effects you reap from a wholesome lifestyle can be attributed to a balanced and nutritious diet, with the remaining 20 percent coming from exercise.

Unfortunately, most Americans are uninformed about what actually constitutes healthy eating. In a poll of more than 1,200 American adults, nearly 90 percent said their diet was either “somewhat,” “very,” or “extremely” healthy.  However, 43 percent of the survey respondents said they drank at least one sugary soda or sweetened drink every day. A third of the respondents also said they were at an ideal weight, when they actually were overweight or obese.

It’s hard to get anywhere near your wellness goals if you’re misinformed about what foods are truly healthy.

I believe that one key aspect of eating well is ditching highly processed, fast food meals, and opting for fresh, whole, locally grown foods – organic as much as possible – packed with valuable vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. An excellent example of this would be superfoods.

Isn’t it amazing how the health of our family members can trigger us into action! So was the case with this Turmeric tea recipe. My father was recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis, a condition that was causing him a great deal of pain and for a man who was exceptionally active, the pain began to slow him down.

Pain killlers weren’t helping, in fact the side effects from the pain killers were worst than the arthritis! So we set about finding him a diet that he could have that would help with his condition and this tea ticked all the boxes. A natural anti-inflammatory and natural pain killer, my Dad is LOVING this tea as its tastes like chai and he uses it as a replacement for coffee and black tea. With many many other health benefits, this tea is an absolute must have for your medicine cupboard.

Ingredients:
3 heaped teaspoons turmeric
1 heaped teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons ground cardamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger

1.5 Lts of 3.5 pints of filtered water
Honey to taste
nut milk optional
