news for High Blood
|One out of every
three adults in the US with high blood pressure,
medication is almost a given. There's many
medications to keep blood pressure under control
-- diuretics, ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers,
alpha-blockers, calcium channel blockers and
more. Unfortunately, though these various drugs
do a reasonable job of pushing down blood
pressure readings, they also can cause serious
complications and come with a list of side
effects ranging from fatigue, insomnia, and
depression to impotence, gout, diabetic
episodes, fatal liver problems, heart disease
(ironically), and permanent kidney damage.
A research team fed small amounts of pea protein
hydrolysate extracted from yellow peas to rats
for eight weeks, and by the end of that time,
the rats showed a 20 percent drop in blood
pressure compared to rats on a regular diet.
Not only did the pea protein lower their blood
pressure, but it also increased
urine output by 30 percent, indicating a significant
improvement in kidney function since those with
kidney damage often have impaired urine flow and
so can't rid the body of toxins.
Eating peas for dinner won't do the trick. The
protein needs to be isolated and activated with
enzymes. Yellow pea protein has enormous
benefits as a protein source, as it's
hypoallergenic, easily absorbed by the body,
easy to digest and cholesterol-free, and unlike
other protein sources, doesn't lead to
intestinal toxemia. And now, it turns out, it
also may be anti-hypertensive and beneficial to

During premenopause, the ovaries no longer
ovulate on a regular basis. This is the basis
for the cycle changes and the beginning of
symptoms such as hot flashes. Menopause itself
usually begins in the mid-forties to early
fifties. When the ovaries stop producing
significant amounts of estrogen and
progesterone, the menstrual cycle ceases; a
woman who has had no periods for a year is
said to be menopausal.
Women's reactions to menopause vary widely.
Some enjoy the change, while others suffer
from problems like hot flashes, vaginal
dryness, heart palpitations, and mood swings,
often for years. But if a woman is healthy,
active, and well nourished, her adrenal glands
will usually respond to menopause by creating
precursor hormones such as pregnenolone and
DHEA, which are then converted into estrogen,
progesterone, and testosterone. And if she
takes natural steps to encourage this process,
it is likely that she can avoid harsh and
possibly dangerous medications altogether.
For women with mild to moderate symptoms of
menopause, it is generally recommended to try
diet, exercise, and nutritional supplements,
especially herbal, essential oils and
homeopathic remedies. Natural supplements
balance the hormones that are already present
in the body. In addition, the use of natural
progesterone appears to be very safe and
effective when a stronger approach is
There are many symptoms that come with
menopause but the most talked about symptom is
definitely hot flashes. Some women can
experience up to a dozen hot flashes in just
one day making it difficult to sleep and
making it hard to focus on their daily
activities. Hormonal Replacement Therapy is
one effective way to relieve hot flashes but with
that comes many side effects and risks. There
are many alternative ways women are
discovering everyday to relieve the severity
of their hot flashes. Some of the best and
most effective ways are listed below.
We found that women who experienced symptoms
when they began menopause had fewer
cardiovascular events than those who
experienced hot flashes late in menopause or
not at all. Hot flashes will never be
enjoyable, but perhaps these findings will
make them more tolerable.

one to two times daily. Black cohosh has
been shown in numerous studies to alleviate
a multitude of menopausal symptoms,

- The best way to increase deficient
progesterone levels is through natural
nutritional sources. A progesterone-like
molecule is available to assist the body in
creating its own progesterone. The molecule

wearing cotton clothes and allowing your skin
to breathe you can decrease both the
occurrence and severity of these hot flashes,
especially in the heat.
Watch Triggers- Everyone is
different and a variety of things can trigger
hot flashes in different people. It is
important to pay attention to what you were
doing or eating before your hot flash. You may
begin to notice a trend and figure out what
your triggers may be. Common triggers are
alcohol, caffeine, hot food, hot tubs, saunas,
smoking, sugary food and spicy foods.
Relax- Stress can also be a
common trigger for hot flashes. Giving
yourself just 10-15 minutes a day of complete
relaxation can greatly decrease your amount of
hot flashes. Yoga and many deep breathing
exercises can help relax
your body and cool down.

plays an important role in ridding the body of
toxic and harmful chemicals. It also helps the
body make various sex and stress-related
hormones in the adrenal glands and other parts
of the body. Niacin is effective in improving
circulation and reducing cholesterol levels in

osteoarthritis, cataracts and burns. Niacin
needs can be partially met by eating foods
containing protein because the human body is
able to convert tryptophan, an amino acid, into
niacin. Our No-Flush Niacin will not cause the

common ailments we see at home. Their actions
are broad and diverse, ranging from topical
antiseptics and anti-inflammatories to
analgesics, digestive system tonics, and
anti-depressants. While essential oils should
not be a substitute for professional medical
care, they can be successfully employed for many
minor complaints, and as adjuncts to other
Here we will have a brief look at ten essential
oils considered by some to comprise the ‘basic
home care kit’. While by no means exhaustive,
this list will go a long way to providing
effective (and often pleasant!) treatments for
you and your family for things like cuts and
scrapes, sunburn, digestive troubles, stress
related conditions and more. In the second
article, we will cover specific applications and
uses of each oil.
Oil #1: Lavender
Lavender has often been called the ‘medicine
chest in a bottle’ for its broad range of
applications. Every home should keep Lavender on
hand, even if no other oil is used, as it is so
very effective on burns. It’s anti-inflammatory
action is responsible for the beginnings of
modern aromatherapy, as Dr. Jean Valnet
discovered Lavender’s healing properties after
being burned in a laboratory accident. Lavender
is considered to speed wound healing and reduce
scarring. The oil is also pleasantly calming,
and can be used to reduce stress in a variety of
situations – a commonly used technique is to
apply Lavender oil ‘neat’ (undiluted) to the
soles of the feet of patients recovering from
almost any ailment.
Oil #2: Tea
When first examined for it’s antiseptic
properties, Tea Tree essential oil was found to
be 100 times more powerful than carbolic acid –
the medical standard at the time. Tea tree has
an extremely broad range of antibiotic,
antiviral and antifungal properties that have
been confirmed by modern scientific research.
Often used topically on small wounds, Tea Tree
is also commonly found in oral hygiene
preparations, and can also be effectively
employed for Candida, athlete’s foot and acne,
among other things.
Oil #3: Peppermint
An excellent digestive tonic, Peppermint
essential oil can sooth many stomach complaints.
For the traveler, it’s effectiveness on calming
motion sickness can be of great help. Further,
at least eight controlled studies have shown
Peppermint oil to be effective in reducing
symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, a painful
condition of the intestines. Beyond it’s support
of the digestive system, Peppermint is
delightfully stimulating to the mind,
brightening and sharpening mental focus.
Finally, Peppermint is considered by some to be
a more effective insect repellent than
citronella when used on the body (rather than in
the surrounding air). Eases menstrual cramps,
aids morning sickness, labor, delivery, aids
mastitis, kidney tonic-cystitis, headache,
arthritis, muscular aches and pains, rheumatism.
Oil #4: Chamomile
Ah, the great tension reliever, Chamomile oil.
This extremely gentle essential oil is useful
for a wide variety of nervous conditions, and is
often indicated for cases of stress in children
(including teething and general ‘crankiness’).
Rubbing into the solar plexus is a commonly used
application if that is where one tends to ‘hold
tension’. Chamomile essential oil is available
in to varieties, German or Blue Chamomile and
Roman Chamomile. The Roman variety is most often
used for stress relief, whereas the German
variety has the added bonus of being an
extremely effective anti-inflammatory.
Oil #5: Eucalyptus
Another essential oil with a broad range of
properties, Eucalyptus is most often used for
respiratory conditions, being useful in clearing
congestion with coughs and colds. However, it’s
effects are certainly not limited to the airways
– because of it’s broad range of effects, it has
been called the aromatherapists ‘designer oil’.
Eucalyptus oil can cool the body in Summer (or
due to fever – use in a compress), and support
the immune system in Winter. Diffusing
Eucalyptus oil can kill most staphylococcus
bacteria, again being supportive of bronchial
infections. It is considered equally effective
in cases of cystitis, candida, and sunburn, to
name a few, as well as being an insect
Oil #6: Geranium
Geranium (sometimes known as ‘Geranium Rose’)
works wonderfully on both physiological and
psychological levels. It’s floral aroma is
brightening and uplifting, while also working as
a sedative. Malte Hozzel has made this statement
regarding this oil: "Geranium’s vital, sensual
presence is not subtle, but direct &
unavoidable, making it one of the oils of choice
for aphrodisiac qualities. (Geranium Essential
Oil) inspires natural beauty & enjoyment,
uplifts instantly & "tonifies" the mind
& intellect in a powerful, nearly demanding
attitude. Mobilizing hidden creative &
emotional reserves, helping us to rise to our
own earthly & spiritual identify. A fiery
beauty for the spells of all worlds."
Particularly noted for it’s effect on female
physiologic conditions, Geranium oil can be
effective for menopausal problems, uterine and
Oil #7: Rosemary
Rosemary essential oil is an effective physical
and mental stimulant, whether used in a diffuser
or in a morning bath. It’s slightly spicy,
rather than floral aroma, has a warming effect
particularly useful for arthritic joints and
other muscular complaints. It also has a long
history of treatment for colds and flu –
Rosemary was a component of ‘Four Thieves
Vinegar’, which robbers rubbed upon their bodies
to prevent infection when up to no good during
the plague years of the middle ages. Also,
Rosemary is the essential oil most often
associated with improving hair growth in cases
Oil #8: Thyme
Thyme oil is a powerful antiviral, antibiotic,
antiseptic and diuretic, though it should be
employed with great care. There are many types
of Thyme oil available, but only the ‘linalol’
chemotype is appropriate for use with children;
all varieties should be diluted prior to topical
application. Given the precautions, Thyme can be
a first line of defense in cases of flu, being
used in a room diffuser. It also supports
elimination of toxic wastes from the body
(particularly noted for excessive uric acid),
and it’s warming quality can eliminate mucous
and phlegm. It’s application for the digestive
system is that of a powerful anti-parasitic, and
for the muscular system, it can be helpful for
rheumatic aches and pains. Thyme oil may also be
supportive in cases of hair loss.
Oil #9: Lemon
A recent study on test-taking college students
showed the diffusion of Lemon oil into a room
improved test scores more than any other oil. In
addition to it’s mind-brightening qualities, it
can also disinfect room air and act as a natural
deodorant. Lemon has been noted to support liver
function, and is also commonly used to assist in
weight loss and cellulite reduction. In blends,
lemon adds a pleasant top note, and can create a
synergistic effect with other oils. Finally,
Lemon oil is commonly used as both a fragrance
and flavoring agent.
Oil #10: Clove
The power of Clove essential oil is noted upon
the first sensing of the aroma – it is quite
strong, sharp and earthy. Clove oil has been
found to be the strongest anti-oxidant of any
essential oil, and is a component of ‘longevity’
formulas. It is also an extremely potent
antibacterial, effective against a broader range
of microbes than any other oil except perhaps
Oregano – Clove oil has even been employed to
sterilize surgical instruments. Clove also has
analgesic properties, and can be used to
temporarily reduce the pain of toothache. Clove
oil (or ground cloves) is also a component of
Dr. Huda Clark’s anti-parasite protocol, helping
eliminate parasites from one’s digestive system.
This is a very powerful oil which should be
diluted to 1% or less for topical application.
