Psoriasis is defined as a chronic skin disorder that commonly affects 1% to 3% of the world’s population.  Psoriasis is characterized by periodic flare-ups of red patched covered by a silvery and flakey scale typically on the scalp.

There are several variations of psoriasis, but the most common plaque psoriasis, but the exact cause of psoriasis is unknown.  It is believed that a combination of several factors contribute to the development of psoriasis. 

In an immune system that functions normally, white blood cells produce antibodies to bacteria and viruses.  These white blood cells also produce chemicals which help to aid in healing and fighting infective agents.  Psoriasis causes special white blood cells, called T-cells, to become overactive.

T-cells attack the skin which sets off a series of events which make the skin cells multiply quickly enough so they start to stack up on the surface of the skin.  Normal skin cells are typically sloughed off every thirty days, but in plaque psoriasis the skin goes through the entire process in three to six days. 

Herbs For Health »

There is great activity in the areas of herbal cleansing and rebuilding of various organs during autumn, so the winter quarter of the year seems more quiet and restful. It may be time to simply snuggle up in front of the fire with a good book and a mug of steaming chamomile tea on a cold wintry evening. In this last quarter of the solar year we traverse the signs of Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces � the signs where we achieve the goals we set at the beginning of the year in Aries (21 March - 20 April) � and we move into releasing those goals, resting a bit and formulating new aspirations.

Seasonal Notes

Here is an array of holiday seasonal notes from our ancestors, who used these helpful herbs. Stress relief was found in chamomile tea, botanical name Matricaria recutita, as it has tryptophan in it. Chamomile in bath herb mixes may soothe away stress (see recipe at end). Valerian, Valeriana officinalis, has calcium that is supplied directly to the nerves, so valerian may help calm the season. Those who find sleep elusive often place a few drops of valerian extract under the tongue about an hour before bed. For daytime calm, some like capsules. Some hold their breath or nose to avoid the odd aroma while opening the bottle to pop a capsule in their mouths.

Diabetes, Health and Vitality »

[6 May 2010 | No Comment ]

Like obesity, diabetes is now considered by many health experts and professionals as an "epidemic" because more and more people suffer from it. The age ranges of people who become prone to it become younger and younger. And the people who are at risk are those who do not only have diabetes history in their families but also those who have developed the disease over time.

Experts say that people who have a history of diabetes in their bloodlines are the primary set of people who are at risk for this disease. But, they are not the only ones who can suffer from this chronic illness. In fact, almost everyone—especially those who have high glucose content in their blood and unable to use it—is prone to having this disease.

Trends are changing

Before, when you are diagnosed with diabetes, it is synonymous to loss of limbs, total loss of vision or blindness, kidney failure, and worst, early death. But now, this is no longer the case. Because of the trends in modern technology and advances in the medical field through research, many people with diabetes are seeing hope that they will enjoy longer and healthier their lives just like the regular people.

John Beaulieu, N.D., Ph.D.

Our cranium is the crown of creation. The Old Kings and Queens of Europe and the Orient placed special metals and jewels on their heads during a Holy Ritual. Over the centuries the special jewels and metals were made into rudimentary and eventually more sophisticated crowns. The people believed that Royal blood was special and different from theirs. They believed that Kings and Queens because of their blood could communicate directly with Spirit.

Each country had special ceremonies to prepare the King or Queen for Adoration. These ceremonies often times involved fasting and preparing their heads with special herbs and aromatic oils. When a King and Queen were crowned the metals and jewels in their crowns served as antennae to receive divine messages by which they were to govern. Ideally they were psychic channels or intermediaries between God and the Kingdom or Heaven and Earth.

The Down Side Of Appetite SuppressantsSo many of us, in America, are wanting to lose a few extra pounds. We are a society of consumption and often have an appetite that is bigger than what is needed to sustain our bodies. People are afraid to adopt a healthy diet because it is often seen as them depriving or starving themselves of something.

Fact is, controlling your appetite and starving yourself are two very different things. There are plenty of foods that are good for you and still make you feel full. In fact, you might even start to feel better if you are eating the right things!

Appetite suppressants are not nearly as popular as they once were. Years ago, they were often used by those who wanted to shed a few pounds and were too lazy to put in any kind of real effort. They have lost their popularity because of the vast list of side effects that they cause. Some of them are abdominal pain, anxiousness, addiction, loss of sleep, impotency and too many others to list right here.

Researchers, doctors and patients have been able to identify many triggers for migraines. Knowing what triggers your migraines can be beneficial to you in that you can either avoid them all together by paying attention to staying away from your triggers or at least minimizing the symptoms by taking preventative medications when you know you will not be able to avoid your triggers.

Common triggers that have been identified are reactions to food or other allergy producing substances, bright lights, loud noises, stress that is either physical or emotional in nature, changes in your patterns of sleep, exposure to tobacco smoke or being a smoker yourself, fasting, consuming alcoholic beverages, and hormonal fluctuations. Some individuals have even reported that when they have a tension headache that often triggers a migraine headache to start.
