Since green tea is chock full of healing antioxidants, flavonoids and catechins, it can help soothe skin and counteract the effects of free radical damage from sun exposure and environmental toxins. Studies even show that green tea may help soothe inflammation and protect skin from cancer caused by sunlight. When combined with extra moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and honey, this body wash sinks into parched skin and creates a protective barrier against the elements. And because it uses castile soap as its base, it lathers like a dream without stripping skin of its natural oils–thus leaving your skin even softer than before.

DIY Bathroom Steam

Before trying steaming, make sure you drink plenty of water before and after. You’re going to sweat a lot and you don’t want to completely dehydrate yourself. The point is to substitute the bad substances in your body with good, clean substances. A waterbottle both before and after your steam is plenty.

Sinus Relief 10 Ways

Difference Between a Cold and Sinus Infection

Before you jump into home remedies for sinus infections, make sure you have a sinus infection, and not a cold. The best way to determine whether you have a sinus infection or a cold is to know the symptoms of each. There are a few differences that are crucial for your treatment.


1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Known popularly as a “do-it-all-home-remedy,” apple cider vinegar can be used in two ways for sinus infection. The first and standard way is to include apple cider vinegar in your daily diet, as the vinegar delivers a number of healthy nutrients and vitamins that support a healthy immune system. However, once a sinus infection has developed, apple cider vinegar has another usage.

How to do it:

Dilute a few drops of apple cider vinegar into water, and then use it as a rinse to thin the mucus. A few days are more than enough to eliminate the sinus infection. If you like, you can prepare a bigger dose and store it to use a few times daily for few days.

2. Saline Rinse

7 Natural Allergy Relief Remedies

These simple natural remedies have been very effective for allergy relief in our family. Different people seem to benefit from different remedies, so it might be worth trying more than one of these to see which works best for you.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is an age old remedy that is often recommended for a variety of health conditions. I’ve personally used it for allergy relief (and heartburn relief) with great success. The theory is that its ability to reduce mucous production and cleanse the lymphatic system makes it useful for allergies. It is also said to help digestion, weight loss and more so it is worth a try!

What I did: When allergies hit, I mixed a teaspoon of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with “The Mother” (that part is important) into a glass of water and drank this three times a day. “The Mother” is simply a colony of beneficial bacteria present in some organic and unfiltered ACV brands. Check the label, it should list if it contains it.

This helped me with relief of acute allergy symptoms and seemed to help avoid allergy attacks as well when I do it daily.

2. Neti Pot and Saline Rinse

Years ago, I had to have sinus surgery due to complications from Cystic Fibrosis. My ENT was adamant that I had to irrigate my nose several times a day. And he told me how to make my own saline solution so I would never have to buy it (he is a great doctor!).

This is the recipe he gave me, and it’s the same recipe I’ve been using ever since.

San Diego Woman Dead After Turmeric IV Infusion

ENCINITAS, Calif. (KGTV) – Friends say Jade Erick was a “free spirit” who was as beautiful on the inside as she was outside. She was also interested in holistic health, but that interest may have contributed to her death at the age of 30.

According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner the cause of her death was “: anoxic encephalopathy due to prolonged resuscitated cardiopulmonary arrest due to adverse reaction to infused turmeric solution”.   A spokesperson confirmed the turmeric was delivered through an IV.
