tweet Coconut on a tropical beach

You might have noticed that the beverage – coconut water – has become very popular, with many companies jumping on the bandwagon to market and sell their own versions. Of course if you are super fortunate with access to fresh young green coconuts, you can make a hole in the thick skin of a green coconut and pour out your own coconut water ready to drink. But most of us don’t have that opportunity and have to look for a safe ...

But there are many other health benefits from salt water. In fact, life itself is thought to have originated in the sea as single-celled creatures. Salt water in the past Sea water has a history of therapeutic use. Thalassotherapy (originating from the Greek word thalassa) involves warm sea water ...

tweet blog image - epsom salts large

Most would hardly give Epsom salts a second thought but they are surprisingly full of health benefits. The salt is named for a salty spring at Epsom in Surrey (in the UK), and not too far from where I now live. In fact Epsom salts are not a salt at all but a 100% natural pure mineral, comprising magnesium and sulfate. Why do we need magnesium and sulfates? It is now known that both magnesium and sulfate are readily absorbed through the ...

Age Spots & Should You Just Accept Them As Inevitable? |

tweet blog image - age spots

The words age spots are really not the kind of description you want to hear about a condition that usually affects visible areas of your skin (particularly the hands) as you grow older. Their other common name of liver spots is also a bit off putting. Sun spots would definitely sound more attractive, and not without justification either as too much exposure to the sun is the main reason for their appearance anyway. But please don't let that reason put you ...

  For many years it has been understood that Lyme disease is an infection caused by being bitten by an infected tick. It is called Lyme disease after the name of the town in the USA where it was first described back in 1975. Since then, thousands of cases have been reported both in the USA and elsewhere.  However, in the summer of 2013, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that Lyme disease was much more prevalent than previously ...

Why is Shingles on the Increase? |

Added January 27, 2014, Under: Skin Conditions

tweet blog image - shingles

In the not too distant past, children would catch chickenpox as part of their childhood rite of passage and they would then usually be immune for the rest of their lives. The only drawback was the possibility of shingles developing later in life but this was less likely if they were in contact with their own grandchildren or other children (when they in turn had chickenpox) because such contact would mean a boost to the grandparents' own antibodies. Both chickenpox ...
