Now, I would not ever think that there was a reason to have a bee stinging you and for it to actually do anything for you.  However, for centuries, bee pollen, honey and bee venom even has been used to treat all kinds of things ranging from skin conditions all the way to chronic pain.  The venom in a bee sting actually works as a natural anti-inflammatory for chronic pain.

What you might not know is that bee venom is actually made up of a complex composition of amino acids, proteins and enzymes.  It is basically a colorless liquid that has a very sweet taste and is soluble in water and insoluble in alcohol.  Bee venom also contains a heck of a lot of mineral substances.

There are so many uses for bee venom that I would have never thought of – it is something that you should think about when you are looking for something for your chronic pain!

What you might not realize is that there are a ton of different cures and home remedies right in your kitchen that can help you with all sorts of different aches, pains and even some health concerns that you might have.  That is exactly what we are going to explore in the next few blogs, so make sure that you stay tuned!

First up?  Apple cider vinegar.  This little vinegar is something that should be staple in your kitchen, as it is a fantastic and natural remedy for all sorts of things.  The biggest thing though is heartburn.  If you are a constant sufferer of heartburn, you should absolutely make sure that you dip into some apple cider vinegar.

So next time – rather than taking a typical dose of antacids, make sure that you just down some spoonfuls of apple cider vinegar, it will really help you!

Whenever you are looking for something to fight all sorts of common infections – you need to just look for some Tea Tree Oil!  This particular oil mixed with some silver nitrate is fantastic to fight all sorts of common micro-organisms.  Now, when you are dealing with these two particular ingredients, you want to make sure that you are mixing up low concentrations – because the two of them together actually have increased antimicrobial activity.

Dealing with these two particular things, you always want to make sure that you are careful and that you do your research, however I can tell you for a fact that they work … as I have used them.  This little combination is a brand new one and may even be en effective treatment for MRSA or methicillin resistant staph aureus, which seems to be an increasing concern.

Natural remedies are always fantastic, however you always want to make sure that you are careful with them and talk to your doctor about them.

Fortune cookie soap’s bath milk actually contains everything from pumpkin powder full of vitamins and minerals all the way to some Epsom salt which can certainly help with softening your skin on up and melting away some of that pain that you might be experiencing from – being on the computer too much.

The great thing about this particular product?  Besides the fact that it rocks of course is the price tag – fortune cookie soap is a company that does not overcharge and they truly create some beautiful, sweet-smelling and all around fantastic products!

I have been a huge fan of the fortune cookie soap products.  Not only do I think that the creators are beautiful people, but the products themselves are absolutely incredible.  The quality that goes into fortune cookie soap is absolutely incredible and if you have not heard (probably because it hasn’t exactly been launched yet, but I have the down low about it), fortune cookie soap is revamping some of their products!

This particular product is their Rejuvenate Me bath tea and I have to say that these bath teas are something very different and unique.  Boil them on the stove for five minutes then drop everything into your bath water and I swear you got yourself something awesome!  This particular bath tea has lemongrass, rosemary and some mint, which was all designed to wake you right up.

Fortune cookie soap has some fantastic products and you should absolutely check them out – for they are some quality stuff there!

So what is magnetic — or electromagnetic — therapy? Well, in short, it is a therapy based on energy which is specifically designed to aid in the relief of pain. Of course, that does not really explain how it works.

Put simply, certain medical practitioners believe that there are magnetic static fields which can affect the body — some positively and others negatively.

It is believed that this kind of therapy can help boost energy, relieve pain, and even help people sleep better. According to many reports, not only is this therapy completely safe, but it is said to have no side effects either.

So how does it work? It is believed that if the body is to maintain and keep up the maximum of healing, then it has to have electromagnetic balance. Due to various things, from the sun to power lines, our personal electromagnetic force can be seriously out of balance. Magnetic therapy can help to maintain that balance, in addition to providing pain relief, reducing inflammation, restoring energy, improving the circulation of blood, preventing and even healing infection, improving metabolism, and aiding in the whole healing process.

A lot of people suffer from tendinitis, which is not only extremely uncomfortable but which is also painful.

As the name of the condition itself suggests, it affects the tendons. Specifically, in tendinitis, the tendons become inflamed. That may sound simple, but the results are extraordinarily painful; they can even be quite debilitating.

Fortunately, there are a number of treatments — natural ones at that — which can be used to ease the pain caused by tendinitis. For one thing, the condition itself can be related to either overusing your tendons, or using them improperly. If, for instance, the injury is sustained because you have been jogging too much, taking a break can be helpful.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has also been shown to help the condition. Acupuncture in particular is said to be extremely helpful.

To be perfectly honest – up until I was an older child, I did not understand exactly what Feng Shui meant, nor did I understand why people were constantly moving their furniture around the rooms in an effort to keep the peace.  Now, I know that there is much more to Feng Shui than just moving furniture around and the Feng Shui that I am talking about refers to colors.

While I never realized it – colors are actually one of the main reasons why our moods can switch on and off all of the time.  There are different meanings behind the colors and if you – for example, paint your living room red, you will most likely have very passionate conversations and experiences there because passion is what the color red evokes.

Yellow is a warm and friendly color, which is one of the main reasons why people are constantly painting their homes yellow.  Blue is a calming color and green is a color that is full of life – these are all Feng Shui colors and they truly can help you with those mood swings of yours!

Now that we have discussed just some of the things that can truly help you via taking chamomile, let’s talk about some more things that this heavenly flower can offer up.  One thing that it does it truly helps all sorts of muscle strains, which is fantastic for athletes who are constantly pulling their muscles.  Another thing that chamomile helps fight against are both streptococcus and staphylococcus.

While most people are familiar with chamomile tea to get their daily dose of chamomile, that is not the best way to get it.  You can get it via creams, pills and even tinctures, which is a fantastic way!  If you are looking for a cream that contains chamomile, you want to make sure that you find one that contains about three percent of it – in the tinctures and pills; about one percent is good enough.

Chamomile is one of those herbs that have no or very few side effects, however, you want to make sure that you talk to your doctor before trying anything.

When you truly think about it – herbs are something that are so powerful and can truly do everything for you that all of those over-the-counter medicines and things can do … without everything that is harmful to your body.  For example, Chamomile is one of those flowers that are so powerful in the way of healing that people do not truly know what is locked away in this particular herb.  While Chamomile tea is used to promote relaxation, which is not all that this little flower can do for you.

When cooled, Chamomile is actually something that can truly help with soothing rashes, sunburns and other skin irritations that you might not expect from this particular herb.  The active chemicals in Chamomile work a lot like the prescription anti-anxiety medicines do and that is why Chamomile tea is so good for not only relaxation, but also for really getting rid of your anxiety!

Another thing that Chamomile is great for is menstrual cramps – which help us women out a lot of the time!
