How Lagundi Really Works!

newshealthtoday.com
I'm usually allergic to a lot of synthetic medicines and sometimes I doubt the effect of some herbal supplements--not because medicinal herbs are ineffective but because lots of supplements are. So I always look for genuinely effective natural health supplements.

And lagundi supplement is one of them.

I often dread getting sick with cold and cough because no cold and cough medicines are effective on me. Sometimes, I end up with a fever and then the flu. That's what I really hate. I get so uncomfortable when sick with the flu.

And what I really hate about flu is not being able to do anything but lie down in bed.

And then I found lagundi capsules.

One day, my wife and I were buying medicines for her dad and scouting around for some cold and cough remedies for me. Then I saw a lagundi syrup and capsule advertisement and thought, yeah why not? Who knows, it might work for me. No harm in trying because it's all natural--or is it?

So I asked the pharmacist if it was pure lagundi, and nothing synthetic mixed in it. She said yes, it was just pure lagundi--or vitex negundo. Anything organic or all-natural was safe for me. So we bought 15 capsules, availing of the promo--get 15 capsules for the price of 10. Good buy.

What was the brand? ASCOF.

The Philippine health department did a clinical test on lagundi and found it to have therapeutic benefits. So, it's considered medicine. You won't see anything on the label that says, "No approved therapeutic value."

The first day I tried it (3 to 4 times a day), my unproductive and painful cough improved a bit. Gradually, my cough became productive. The clogging in my nose gradually disappeared and phlegm was smoothly released, the color of which turned clear.

The second and third day, I really felt much better. My cough decreased 80 percent and the same rate with clogging in my nose. To catch up on my health and strength, I also took my usual mangosteen and sodium ascorbate supplements.

I feel I can resume with my really heavy workouts tomorrow!

Here are the other health benefits of lagundi:
  • Helps provide asthma and pharyngitis relief.
  • Relief for rheumatism, boils, dyspepsia, and diarrhea.
  • Relief for bronchopulmonary problems
  • Helps deworm.
Safe for adults and kids but not for pregnant women. Always consult your doctor when taking anything.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
