Turmeric Tea Against Body Pain

authoritynutrition.com
Most body pains you feel are due to inflammation, so you sometimes take ibuprofen, analgesic or aspirin. Anything that has "itis" (pronounced ay-tis) at the end of its name is painful (gengivitis, arthritis, sinusitis, etc.) and are caused by inflammation.

But a clinical finding published in the journal, Oncogene, showed that curcumin, the antioxidant found abundant in Turmeric, is among the most powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative phytochemicals in the world.

Turmeric being all-natural, it's lots safer to just drink turmeric tea than take anti-pain drugs. And the relief lasts longer.

It's easy to make turmeric tea. Peel a handful of turmeric roots (luyang dilaw in Tagalog), wash, and boil into a tea. Drink. As simple as that. A handful of turmeric costs about P15 or less. You can re-boil that bunch up to 5 times.

How does it taste? If you love green tea, you don't have any problem with turmeric tea. Best thing is, it has zero caffeine.

Just make sure your doctor approves of your turmeric tea consumption. That's SOP for any herbal supplement.

Here's a video on how to make turmeric tea.

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&#…
