best eye cream for wrinkles and dark circles

today I’m going to be telling you about under eye wrinkles what are the causes and how to treat them this was a highly requested video under eye wrinkles are a common complaint so whenever we look at somebody the first thing we notice are their eyes so if the skin under their eyes have wrinkles or it’s dark then the tend to look older than their age so taking good care of your under eye skin is very important if you want to look youthful so what are the causes for under eye wrinkles first and foremost is robbing your eyes

lot of people have a habit of rubbing their eyes especially at the end of the day when they feel that robbing their eyes will reduce the tiredness this is something should absolutely not do ok robbing the eyes causes injury to the skin and leads to collagen breakdown which causes wrinkles the skin under the eyes are very thin ok so you don’t want to injure it so please do not rub your eyes second is if you have spectacles and you don’t wear them so when you don’t wear spectacles your eyes will try to focus on an object which is far then

effort to focus the muscles around your eyes will tend to contract and this repeated contraction can lead to early appearance of wrinkles around the eyes certain allergies can also cause wrinkles around the eyes such as allergic rhinitis allergic sinusitis atopic dermatitis all these conditions can cause premature appearance of wrinkles around the eyes in Etobicoke mellitus there’s dry skin in the whole body and also dryness or under the eyes so because of dry skin under the eyes the wrinkles tend to be more prominent just the normal process of aging can also lead to wrinkles under the eyes so as we age the skin tends to lose collagen and elastin

okay so the skin is not as elastic and does not have the turgor that it had when it was young so this breakdown of collagen can lead to the skin getting thrown into fools and these fools appear as wrinkles there can be certain change in your genetics that could be the reason for your under eye wrinkles so in certain families wrinkles tend to appear early as compared to others so what are the treatments that you can take for under eye wrinkles the best and the gold standard treatment for under eye wrinkles is bottling toxin injection or motor Injection Botox injections cause relaxation of the muscle so because the muscle is not contracting

there will be no inline formation but botulinum toxin injections are best when you have dynamic wrinkles okay so if these fine lines and wrinkles are dynamic that means that when there is expression and movement of your face only then if the wrinkles are pure then Botox can completely get rid of it but if you have wrinkles even when you have a straight face with new expressions at all then Botox will help in reducing the appearance but will not completely help in disappearing the wrinkles the cost for bottling toxin injection depends upon the units injected and the units depend upon how deep your wrinkles are and how many of them you have results of botulinum toxin can be noticed as early as three days and maximum results are seen in 14 days

and the results tend to last for about four to six months so it is best to consult your dermatologist if you want to know whether botulinum toxin injections are suitable for you or not there are certain under eye creams that you can use to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles so look for components such as retinol peptides and hyaluronic acid in them okay these will help in boosting the collagen and will also plump up the skin as hyaluronic acid tends to attract water under the skin so it makes the appearance of fine lines much less I suggest you to please make a habit of reading the labels of all the under eye creams

I get a lot of requests for suggesting an under eye cream so I request that if you look at the ingredients available maybe the under eye cream that you’re using is good enough okay so you can just look for the presence of retinol peptides and hyaluronic acid the under eye creams I prefer are roc under eye cream a Vata under eye cream and Neutrogena hydraboost eye gel these under eye creams will have to be used regularly for a period of about 3 to 4 months before you can notice improvement ok so it is not like a magic or a quick fix so you will have to use this regularly for 3 to 4 months in order to see results I get a lot of questions whether they can apply tretinoin cream under the eye tretinoin is a very good cream in reducing wrinkles

ut under-eye skin is face sensitive okay so if you have dry under-eye skin or you react to products easily then tretinoin cream is not a good option for you to apply on the under eye you’ll not be pro tolerated so I will not suggest you to apply tretinoin cream under the eyes if you do wish to apply Tet you know in cream I suggest that you visit your dermatologist you consult once a dermatologist can you know see you in person and see how your skin is then maybe they’ll be able to give you the right suggestion whether trechie know in cream under the eyes will be suitable for you or not we can also undergo certain peels such as arginine peel lactic acid peel or mandelic acid peel in order to reduce the wrinkling under the eyes

you have to go for about six to eight sessions of these peels in order to see improvement these pins help in shedding the dead skin layer of the skin and also helps in stimulating collagen formation so in the long run it helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles you can also undergo a few sessions of fractional co2 laser or micro needling RF treatment would these work by heating the skin up causing a type of a thermal injury to small portions of the skin thereby causing collagen stimulation and formation of new skin this new skin will be tighter and we’ll have less lines and wrinkles

you will have to undergo about three to four sessions of these treatments at about two months interval in order to see improvement hyaluronic acid fillers injected under the eyes can also help in improving the fine lines and wrinkles so if you have your trough under the eyes along with fine lines and wrinkles then hyaluronic acid is a good option for you hyaluronic acid tends to attract water and hence plumps up the skin under the eyes so this way it will not only improve the groove under your eyes but will also improve the quality of the skin okay so the fine lines and wrinkles will appear much less so there you go a short video on fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes

Hair Color Tips and Best Hair Color

do you have gray strands of hair would you not want to get rid of them naturally in just five minutes if yes then this video is for you as in this Blog I’m going to share with you the best hair color in the Indian market stay tuned hello friends welcome to 51 greying of hair is not just a problem among adults but lately one out of every five teenagers is facing this issue the reasons could be many apart from genetics bad eating habits smoking and stress are some of them of course eating healthy helps a lot but what if we want an instant solution well hair colours are what we turn to so in order to find out the best hair color in the market I picked up 15 most commonly used hair colors by Indians

one thing that I found during the intensive research of this video was that the hair colors for men and women are not more than a marketing gimmick this is because the ingredients of both these hair colors are almost the same on the basis of number of harmful chemicals in them I have categorized all these hair colors into four categories category number one includes the hair colors by L’Oreal Revlon Garnier streaks and be blunt if you have been using one of these to color your hair surely you haven’t gone through their ingredient list because

if you had you wouldn’t have dared to touch them all these hair colors have over twenty harmful chemicals present in them using them on a regular basis may cause itchy scalp dandruff excessive hair fall and in some rare cases dermatitis and skin cancer so through these toxin lated black powders out of the window as they do not deserve to be part of your grooming kit category number two includes the hair colors by Cote rage color mate begin indica and became surely better than the ones in the category number one but still not recommended using them regularly main white skin allergies these products themselves warn you of the certain ingredients in them which may cause skin irritation so do yourself a favor by staying away from them category number three include the hair colors by Jovi’s banjaara and black rose these are those self-proclaimed safe and natural hair colors

which shy away from mentioning the complete list of their ingredients if you go through their ingredient list you will only find the mention of a few active ingredients the details of the base are totally missing on the back so not much can be said about them although these hair colors to come with a warning about certain chemicals in them which can cause inflammation of the skin so better to go for something better so are there any hair colors in the indian market which can be used on a regular basis without worrying about their side-effects yes category number 4 includes the hair colors by biotech vegetal hadi all these hair colors are natural in their true sense and

do not come with any warnings let’s briefly go through them one by one biotechs bio henna fresh powder hair color mentions hundred percent ingredient list on the back organically pure and preservative free this hair color will cost you two Peas $1.99 for 90 grams Hadi Naturals herbal black hair color is indigo and henna based product which will cost you two please 235 for 150 grams vegetal x’ safe hair color is another chemical free indigo based vegan product which will cost you rupees 475 400 grams a little on a pricier side but in my opinion it’s worth a try you can use any of the hair colors mentioned in this category according to your budget and suitability the links to the best hair colors are down in the description box I want to confirm that whatever I have spoken in this video or any of the previous

videos in this series is my honest opinion none of the haircolor brands mentioned in the four categories has paid me prevention is better than cure isn’t it although graying of here is something which is not completely in our hands still we can do our bit by eating the healthy and balanced tight reducing the consumption of tea and coffee protecting hair from UV rays of the Sun staying away from tobacco and and living a stress-free life I want to thank mama for partnering with us for this video rainy season is here and one thing that we need this season is a mosquito repellent

Tofu Nutrition Facts for our Heart and Body

Tofu, edamame and tempeh are high-quality sources of protein that are low in calories and saturated fat and high in vitamins and minerals. However are there a subset of people who should avoid soy foods? Should men avoid soy products because of possible feminizing effects, lowering of testosterone and the fact that soy contains plant estrogens called phytoestrogens? The short answer is no…..and this meta-analysis showed that soy products do not affect testosterone levels in men. Interestingly soy may be protective against prostate cancer. This is because prostate cells carry beta type estrogen receptors, which appear to act as tumor suppressors, inhibiting invasion, proliferation, and preventing the prostate cells from turning cancerous and those are the very receptors targeted by the phytoestrogens in soy.

This analysis showed that increased intake of soy resulted in a 26 percent reduction in prostate cancer risk and even a 30 percent risk reduction with non fermented soy products such as tofu. I must stress that it’s very important to eat soy in it’s whole form and not to eat isolated so protein products like soy burger, powders etc. Now there have been two case reports of men who consumed 14-20 servings of soy foods a day who did experience feminizing effects but that’s the equivalent of consuming 5 liters of soy milk every day so of course it’s dose dependent. Now what about women at risk of breast cancer? In the past it was recommended that those who have, or are at risk of developing estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer should avoid eating soybean-based foods because they contain the isoflavones.

Isoflavones are similar in structure to estrogen so there was a fear that soy could act as estrogen in the body and stimulate cancer cells and encourage tumor growth. Well let’s hear from Dr Michael Greger as he addresses this concern……[Dr Greger] Yes until 2007 we didn’t know either way because there weren’t any human studies so soy did one thing to hamsters and other things to rats and there was a lot of controversy, until finally it was put to the test. The original study was published in the journal AMA there’s since been five studies done to date looking at breast cancer survivors involving thousands of breast cancer survivors basically split into two groups half eat soy, half don’t eat soy and just asking simple questions who lives longer and who has lower cancer re occurrence risk, lower risk of the cancer coming back and in every single study,

five out of five studies, women with breast cancer eating soy live significantly longer, have significantly lower risk of the cancer coming back, when you put all the studies together so five out of five. It couldn’t get more clearer so not only should breast cancer survivors not avoid soy they should actively include soy in their daily diet and this goes for a woman with estrogen receptor positive breast cancer, estrogen receptor negative, on tamoxifen, off tamoxifen and in fact it’s particular beneficial for those women with BRCA genes with these breast cancer genes at particularly high risk, soy is even more protective for them not only for preventing breast cancer in the first place but extending the life of those with breast cancer and significantly reducing risk of the cancer returning.

People don’t understand about soy there are two types of estrogen receptors in the body, alpha and beta so the phytoestrogens in soy preferentially bind to the beta receptors whereas our own endogenous estrogen binds to the alpha receptors so the effect that soy has on the tissues of the body depends on the relative ratio from alpha to beta. I mean estrogen has positive effects on some tissues like bone health whereas it has negative effects other places like increasing risk of breast cancer so ideally we would have some kind of selective estrogen receptor modulator and that’s exactly what soy does. Soy has anti-estrogenic effects where you want them like reducing the risk of breast cancer but pro estrogenic effects where you want them like reducing menopausal hot flashes that’s actually a pro-estrogenic effect so you get the best of both worlds when you eat soy.

So the most important thing is that you’re eating whole soy foods so I encourage people to eat a diet centered around whole plant foods and so the more of the food is whole the better. So even something like tofu, that is a processed food, you know, you take a soy bean and you remove about 80% of the fiber remove about half of the minerals and you’re left with tofu. Now soybeans are so incredibly healthy you can remove most of the nutrition and are still left with a really healthy food but tempeh is even better you can see the individual soybeans right there in front of you something like miso something like edamame, whole foods is really the critical point.


soya chunks you’re getting about 52 grams of protein per hundred grams and hundred grams of soya chunks come for about 20 rupees compare that to eggs if you want 52 grams of protein from eggs you need to spend about 40 rupees so soya chunks are half the price of eggs so your chunks and soy products in general are fantastic for building muscle but chances are if you tell a gym bro to take so a chance they’ll react like this yo soy un man boobs or what now here’s the unfortunate truth about jimbros if for most of their life they’ve believed in a particular concept and they formed an opinion on that concept it’s very difficult to ask them to reconsider their opinion now in today’s video I’m not asking you to listen in my opinion I’m asking you to listen to the opinion of science don’t form opinions based on something you’ve heard someone say

if you want to form an opinion on something fitness related first you got a science the shit out of it now understand this topic better you gotta understand where this whole myth comes from now any soy derived product contains a compound called isoflavones and isoflavones are called phytoestrogens phyto means plant and estrogen is the female hormone responsible for giving you female characteristics and unfortunately for most people this is where the story ends you’re eating estrogen grow obviously will become a chick and unfortunately it’s not just the guys a lot of women are also concerned about soya

because they think it messes with their hormonal system but again to understand the truth let’s dive a little bit deeper into the science now isoflavones are called phytoestrogens because they’re capable of combining with the east asian receptors all over your body but what is – gene receptors now East Regine receptors are these proteins found on cells all over your body even on the guys and Eastridge and by itself which means the female hormone doesn’t have any effects without combining with the east asian receptors you know if you’re trying to light a firecracker you need the wick and you need the flame so the flame is the Easter gene that set off the whole thing

but the East region receptor is the wick only together will they have an action now these receptors basically allow East region to do its thing and they found all over your body in your bones they allow for a deposition of calcium in the bones on your skin it helps in keeping the skin looking you’ll know when it’s combined with these students now the isoflavones that you ingest when you eat soy products also have the ability to combine with these receptors but the thing to note here is that they don’t combine with the receptors the same way the East region does they combine weakly with the receptors but just to be sure let’s put numbers on this so there were these studies done when rodents were given a huge amount of isoflavones

and the rodents did show an elevated estrogen level and a drop in the testosterone levels but not so fast the rodents were given about twenty milligrams per kg of body weight converting that the human numbers for every gram of protein that you’re getting from soya you’re ingesting about three milligrams of isoflavones so even if you have 100 grams of soya you’re getting about 52 grams of protein which means you’re getting about 156 milligrams of isoflavones so if you’re a 70 kg dude and you’re ingesting 100 grams of soya chunks you’re only getting about 2.2 milligrams per kg or body weight now just for a minute compare that with the 20 mg per kilogram

that those mice were given if as a human being you want to be consuming 20 mg per kg that means you need to consume about 1,400 milligrams if you’re a 70 kg individual which amounts to about 467 grams of protein and if you want 467 grams of protein just from soya chunks you have to consume a kilo of soya chunks every single day if you actually want manboobs through the soya chunks and if you want your hormones to get affected you got to be consuming a kilo of soya chunks every single day you gotta understand that unfortunately the fitness industry is full of egos and a lot of propaganda and there are rumors that the whey protein industry and the meat industry have had a role to play so we are having such a bad name

now soya having such a bad name is linked to isoflavones but what they don’t tell you is that isoflavones also have a lot of other health benefits they use in everything from cancer therapy to hormone replacement treatment to helping with your bone density and a bunch of other things okay but just for a bit let’s turn our attention away from the science and the numbers and let’s look at Japan and Japanese food culture a lot of the dishes are centered around soya products like tofu and miso sauces everything that contains isoflavones

but none of them have hormonal problems or manboobs or reproductive problems or anything like that now if a culture like that has survived and prospered for thousands of years and thousands of generations of eating soya what makes you think that that little bit of soya chunks are you eating every day will change your hormonal system or your hormonal profile or will make you more manly or more feminine or things like that okay now that we know that you can consume so a chance

Top 10 Essential oils for cold sores and Its Benefits (Updates 2020)

hey there everyone so today I’m gonna be extremely vulnerable because I am suffering from something that I have not had happen to me in a very long time and that is this ugly thing on my lip which I feel like the whole world can see all the time and it’s like it’s like one of those bright flashing lights you know like how they used to have the staples like push like the easy button or something that’s what I feel like is on my lips now if you’ve ever had one you know exactly what I’m talking about and that would be the dreaded cold sore now I used to get these all the time actually like three four times a year then

I got into lipstick health I boosted my immune system I addressed it mice I dressed my stress which are some of the most common reasons why you will have this Colts were erupted I addressed those things and lo and behold for many many years I’ve had zero but lately I’ve been a little bit stressed out not managing very well and look what we got here so I don’t know if you didn’t see it I know it’s disgusting right you don’t really want to look that close but just if you’ve never seen it you know what

I’m talking about now for those of you that have had them and you know exactly how it feels you get that tiny little prickly sensation and then lo and behold you have a fever blister on your lips well I felt the tingling last night woke up this morning and sure enough the blister is performing it’s a bunch of fluid that forms in these blisters on your lips usually and I immediately thought what can I do what do I have in my medicine cabinet that I can apply I’ve tried Abreva has not really worked for me in the past I’ve tried lysine mixed results and this time I decided to try oregano oil this stuff is amazing so what I did was I took a little bit of fractionated coconut oil approximately half a teaspoon put one drop of oregano

I took a q-tip and I dabbed it in here and then applied it to the lip I did that this morning and I did it around lunchtime and now we’re in the afternoon and this thing is probably looking like it would normally look on day four or five and we’re like five hours in so this stuff is amazing I mean it’s cut down the time in like four days so add half a teaspoon of fractionated coconut oil one drop of regon o oil in here take a q-tip apply delicately to the lip and then it’s a live in half a day for me

and I’ve already had the fever blisters let go release their liquid and now it’s starting to form a scab which like I said before usually takes about three or four days to get to and now once this gap is Fleming you can apply different oils before we move on to that I did want to say that a lot of people also have really great luck with mal looka or tea tree oil and you can do that the same way dilute it and another thing that people really love and you can use this in conjunction is turmeric so you could put a drop of turmeric with the oregano oil or with the Melaleuca and apply that I just did oregano by itself and that did the trick now

that I have a scab forming I can actually apply lavender lavender is amazing for healing the skin especially for burns or blisters so that’s what I will do now that this gap is forming so I hope you don’t get cold sores because they’re awful in the whole world can notice them on your face but if you do get them don’t worry don’t fret you can get rid of them really quickly with the help of essential oils I will leave a link below if you want to get hold of some of these great essential oils for you and I highly recommend getting the basics all three of these will come in the bay that kid Melaleuca the lavender and the oregano and I use these for so many things so if you have any questions leave a comment below and I am more than happy to answer them have a great one



I want to talk to you guys about my journey with cold sores first off let’s just talk about how much do cold sores suck if you get cold sores you have the answer to this they suck and they always happen at the absolute worst times and I have been suffering with them let’s see I am 41 so I’ve been suffering with them for about 25 years now they started when I when I hit puberty they started getting really bad and it got to the point where like everything would trigger a cold sore eat citrus I get a cold sore get a fever cold sore get sick cold sore go out in the Sun oh another cold sore and the kicker was I started getting them with my monthly cycle

when I of you late ‘add and my temperature would because your temperature goes up a little bit when you ovulate so I died late cold sore so like every month I was getting a cold sore for years oh my gosh you guys my life has been changed world transformed so a year ago I started taking whole food concentrates and vegan omegas I’ve had one cold sore in this past year one cold sore so this is my first tip these things amazing I will post the link in the comments completely as I think have just regulated my immune system or something because I’m not getting cold sores anymore when I do get them though

I have amazing tips so I did get one cold source since I’ve started that but one cold sore in a year versus one every month I literally feel like a new human being but I have a trick for when you do get a cold sore how to make it go away super super fast like within three days I have tried everything prescription medications every home remedy known to man freezing them gosh I can’t I can’t even go through the list of how many different things I’ve tried alcohol lemons like everything but I have found something that works so here’s what I do when I get a cold sore essential oils and I do them straight you’re not usually supposed to put essential oils directly on your skin but when it’s a cold sore you don’t ever round you just don’t because you don’t want that thing on your face so here’s what I do I get a q-tip and I saturate the tip of the q-tip

with either helichrysum essential oil or Melaleuca essential oil which is tea tree so saturate the tip of this with tea tree or helichrysum essential oil I’ll put some good brands some of my favorite brands in the comments or wherever the comments are gonna show up up down so that you can buy these essential oils if you don’t have already have them this is the most expensive one and is the kind of the investment which is Melissa essential oil it’s lemon balm so then and you don’t need much of this so you can just get a teeny tiny little bottle so after you saturated the tip of your q-tip with either helichrysum or tea tree you will put one drop of Melissa essential oil on that q-tip and then you’re gonna take it and you’re gonna scrub you’re not gonna dab you’re not gonna be gentle you’re gonna scrub the heck out of that cold sore and hopefully you caught it

early and it’s just barely there or just starting to blister so that’s the best time to catch it you’re gonna take this and kind of flatten your lip out and scrub really hard the whole area where the cold sore is for probably thirty Seconds to a minute scrub it scrub scrub scrub you’re gonna do that two to three times a day for the first actually I would maybe even do it more often I would do it maybe every three hours or something for the first day and then after that you can you can dab that you don’t have to scrub it as much once it starts to scab but the first day before it scabs you want to really scrub it it might bleed those little blisters are gonna pop but you guys I’m telling you your cold sore will dry up and be gone within three days

so it’s like magic basically and those of you who get cold sores know what I’m talking about those suckers can be hard to get rid of and to get to dry out and what seems to happen with this is that you get down into like those deep layers and the cold sore never gets really deep painful if you catch it early on and you do this trick it stops it like it stops it right where it is and then it’ll just scab over lightly and you’re done Colts are gone so that is my magic tip and I’m telling you it works and flooding my body with these whole food concentrates has changed my world because now I only have to deal with a cold sore once a year I’m hoping maybe even less than that I don’t know knock on wood we’ll see how the next year goes so let me know how this works for you let me know how this scrubbing tip works for you put some comments below I’d love to hear back from you guys cold sores suck but there is a little bit of hope I never thought I wouldn’t say that there’s hope

How to cure flu naturally fast? Everyone should know that

cure flu naturally fast

hi friends welcome to my blog and today we are talking about natural cold and flu remedies since we are in the depths of cold and flu season right now I thought that I would put together some of my favorite home remedies these aren’t really remedies per se but there are things that you can do to take care of yourself help yourself hopefully get better sooner

if you do have a cold currently or if you feel like you have something coming on hopefully you could use some of these strategies to make it not happen and make sure that you don’t catch that nasty bug that’s going around so why don’t we just go ahead and dive right in the first thing that you can do for your cold and flu is to hydrate I talked about hydration a lot on my blog and it is so important especially when you feel like you have a polder flu or you feel like you’re coming down with something the reason for that is that our body needs water to optimally function

so in order for our immune system to be strong in order for our digestive system to be strong our detoxification systems to be strong they need to have proper hydration so that they can function properly so it’s really important that we if we are feeling like we’re coming down with something we flood our body with water so in general I recommend that you guys try to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water every single day and that could be herbal teas whatever you want but when you have a cold or flu or you feel like you have something coming on I want you to 1.5 that amount so you’re basically drinking 3/4 of your body weight in ounces of some form of hydrating liquids

so that could be regular water it could be herbal teas it could be coconut water it could include kombucha or seltzer water really you want to just make sure that you’re getting in a ton of hydration and that kind of brings us in to my second topic which is to make some homemade elixirs so there are tons of things and tons of food things that help boost your immune system and help support your immune system but these are three drinks that I make all the time in the winter not only just to like feel cozy and warm because they are warm drinks but also because they are helpful for your immune system and they’re really cozy and comforting when you have a cold or flu so the first thing that we’re gonna make is a lemon ginger echinacea tea and this is super simple it’s just fresh lemon juice some sliced fresh ginger some echinacea droplets and then I like to sweeten mine with honey and the reason that I like to use honey is that raw honey which

I always use that’s the only form of honey that I use is really high in antimicrobial and antibacterial properties so it’s really great for when you do have some sort of thing going on in your body it just helps to kind of like get that bacteria out and get that stuff that stuff out and the other benefit of it is that it’s really soothing and it’s really comforting especially if you have a sore throat so this tea is amazing I love it I actually just made one this morning even though I’m not really feeling sick but I did make one this morning and it’s such a great way to start your day and it’s also really cozy and comforting so here’s what you do the first thing we’re gonna do is slice a lemon and we’re going to use all of that juice in our tea and then we’re also going to slice I like to thinly slice a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger I don’t peel it

I just really slice it on along the diagonal and then I also add that into the water as well so we have our lemon juice and our ginger and then the echinacea that I like is from Gaia herbs and this is a droplet bottle and you just basically are going to add two dropper Foles of the echinacea you could do one I like to do two especially if I feel like something is coming on so I have two dropper Foles of the echinacea and then I also add in either half to a whole teaspoon of raw honey and again just make sure that you are buying really high quality honey hopefully from somebody that you can find locally that has a really kind of sustainable bee farm and again like I mentioned honey just has a ton of really great nutritional properties so you’re going to add everything into your cup and then you are going to top it with hot water you’re going to just stir it all together and then you have your amazing ginger lemon tea like to let this steep for about five minutes before I drink it so it gets nice and gingery but it’s super simple to make and it’s really soothing especially if you have a sore throat the second elixir that we’re gonna make is a tumeric latte and I’m actually cheating a little bit with my tumeric latte because

I use a golden milk powder I found this on thrive market but you can get it at a lot of grocery stores and you can also get it on Amazon and actually this brand is again Gaia herbs they have really great products this video is not sponsored by them but I use a few of their supplements I use their echinacea like I just mentioned and I love their golden milk mixture so here are the ingredients of the gold milk it’s just tumeric it has some ashwagandha it has some cardamom has a little bit of date sugar it also has some vanilla and of course you could make this at home if you wanted you could just kind of build up these ingredients and I’ll give you some proportions in the description box that you don’t want to buy this mix but what I really like about this mix is that it also contains black pepper and if you are eating turmeric you really want to make sure that you have some black pepper in there as well because that activates the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric

which is the curcumin and when you have the black pepper that activates the curcumin and it helps boost the anti-inflammatory properties of the turmeric so for our tumeric latte we are going to add about a teaspoon of this golden milk powder into a blender I also like to add a little bit of cinnamon I just really like the flavor and it’s really warming I also like to add in some monk fruit extract to sweeten but you could also use raw honey you can use maple syrup or you can use some form of granulated sugar and then I add in a little bit of almond milk to make this nice and creamy of course you could use coconut milk or coconut butter some form of coconut oil or MCT oil and then we top it with hot water and basically we just blend this all up until it’s smooth and creamy and that’s all you have to do and

what I love about tumeric lattes is that they are super cozy they’re super comforting because this one has ashwagandha powder in it it also is really calming and relaxing it’s stress relieving and like I mentioned it’s also really anti-inflammatory so one of the things that happens when we’re sick internally is that we have inflammation so our body is responding to whatever is happening with our cold or flu and one of the things that it does is it gets inflamed so whether it’s your lungs your throat whatever is your sinuses there is inflammation inside of your body when you have a cold or flu so it’s really great to add some anti-inflammatory ingredients like tumeric into your diet so that’s why I love tumeric lattes when I’m feeling down and out the last thing that we’re making is a mushroom hot chocolate and I know that this sounds a little bit strange

but medicinal mushrooms are incredible immune boosters they are amazing for your immune system and they really help your body fight back against the whatever is happening the cold or the flu so I love incorporating with its no mushrooms especially when I’m feeling sick but I honestly eat medicinal mushrooms every single day the brand that I like and I’ve talked about these before and another video is root and bones they are organic they’re sustainably harvest and they’re really amazing so the three mushrooms that we’re using in our hot chocolate aren’t chaga this is considered the king of mushrooms it’s really amazing it’s great for immortality it’s great for longevity it’s also a course amazing for your immune system we’re also using reishi mushrooms which are considered the queen of mushrooms and they are amazing as well these are really great for immune system they’re really great for energy and they’re really great for balancing stress and in the last mushroom that we’re using is cordyceps I love cordyceps they’re really energizing they’re really great for vitality and clarity and they also aren’t amazing again for your immune system

so these are just the three that I personally like you really could do a blend of any of your favorite medicinal mushrooms and I promise this hot chocolate does not taste like mushrooms at all it tastes like hot chocolate it’s so good super creamy super thick and you guys are gonna love it and your immune system is going to love you for drinking it so here’s how to make it we’re gonna add about a tablespoon and a half to two tablespoons of rock cacao powder into our blender and then I like to do a full teaspoon each of my vegetable mushrooms and then I’m adding in some monk fruit extract to sweeten it as well as some coconut butter to make it super creamy you guys know I love adding coconut butter into my warm drinks and then you’re just topping this all with about two cups of hot water

and you’re just gonna blend this up until it’s smooth and creamy I find that this needs to be blended a little bit longer just so that the powders get evenly distributed throughout the liquid so I would say blend it for like fifteen to thirty seconds and then you can just pour it into your mug and you’re good to go so those are my three elixirs that I like to drink when I’m really feeling sick or I feel like something’s coming on but there are a few other things that you can do for your body if you have a cold or flu so we talked about hydration we talked about elixirs the second thing that I want to encourage you guys to do is rest and I’m sure you’ve heard of this a million times but it’s really important to get proper sleep and proper rest when you’re feeling sick your body is under internal stress and it needs to recuperate

it needs time to get better and if you’re just pushing pushing pushing going going going and you’re feeling really stressed out at work or whatever it is you’re not going to be able to get better as quickly so you want to make sure that you’re getting at least eight hours of sleep every single night maybe that means going to bed at 8:30 and getting up at your normal time if that’s the case do it you’re going to get better a lot faster if you get proper sleep and you’re gonna feel a lot better more quickly so I definitely recommend that you rest and recuperate as much as possible the third thing that I recommend you think about doing is sweating a little bit so it doesn’t have to be like a super intense workout or anything but getting a little bit of movement is going to really help kind of break things up inside it’s gonna get your body moving

and it’s really important for keeping your immune system in tip-top shape so I recommend that you do something semi gentle even if you are an intense exerciser I personally think it’s better to kind of go for a light jog go for a nice walk outside maybe go to a hot yoga class that’s what I personally love to do when I’m feeling sick because heat really makes me sweat and gets out some of those bad toxins but yoga is also really gentle so do something that’s kind of gentle but still kind of get your body moving so that you can get your systems moving internally another thing that you can do is take a steam shower I’m sure you guys have heard this as well but steaming in the shower is going to really help break up the congestion especially if you’re feeling something in your sinuses or in your chest so just kind of take a hot shower leave the water on for a little bit before you get in let your bathroom kind of steam up and then get in and what I actually love to do is add some eucalyptus oil into my shower so I just kind of drop it into the tub or the basin and it smells amazing it’s super energizing and invigorating but it also has like a kind of minty nest to it so it also helps to break up the conduction

so I love eucalyptus if you don’t have that you could also do peppermint but really just kind of steaming in your shower for like 10 minutes it’s really gonna help loosen things up and then from there I recommend you get out of the shower and try to either cough the congestion out of your lungs or really try to blow the congestion out of your sinuses like with tissues since it’s all kind of loose from your steam shower you really want to take advantage of that so make sure you try to get it out instead of just like going into your bedroom and getting dressed if congestion is something that you’re struggling with the fourth thing that I recommend is getting a neti pot and neti pots are really great because they flush your sinuses they feel super weird they like basically you’re just putting this little pot inside of your nose and water is going all through your sinuses and coming out the other side of your nose it feels so strange but I promise it helps amazingly well so I was pretty congested a couple weeks ago and I woke up in the middle of the night and I could barely breathe so I went into my bathroom and I did the neti pot with like a little bit of warm water and a little bit of sea salt I let it kind of sit so that the sea salt dissolved and then I flushed out my sinuses and I felt so much better it really cleared them out it really broke them you that was in there and I was able to blow my nose get the congestion out and fall back asleep

so if congestion is something that you’re really struggling with and you’re feeling really clogged up then I definitely recommend you guys pick up a neti pot and then the my last thing and of course there are a ton of other remedies that you can do and I’m actually gonna have a blog post on at my blog today as well so you can check that out in the description box below but the last thing that I recommend you do is incorporate essential oils into your routine so if you aren’t already using essential oils I have a few videos on my channel I’ll again link those for you in the description box below as well but I love using essential oils when I’m feeling sick I use them at night and I use them all day while I’m at home so if you are at home you’re working at home or you’re just taking a sick day even if you’re in an office if you have it like a closed-door office

you can definitely do this but bring your diffuser with you and diffuse some oils so my favorite blend is during the day our lavender peppermint and eucalyptus and sometimes I also add in some lemon in there and those scents together are really great for just feeling sick like the lavender is kind of calming and stress relieving the peppermint gets into your sinuses and it just kind of like helps break things up but it’s also energizing and then again the same thing with eucalyptus so that is my favorite blend for the daytime in the evening if I’m falling asleep I like to put together a little sleep concoction which really helps with congestion as well there is a blend from Young Living that I love it’s called RC so I used like 5 to 10 drops of RC I also add in lavender which I sleep with lavender every single night because it feels and smells amazing so lavender I also do a little bit of stress away because your body is feeling stress when you’re feeling sick so it’s kind of coping

like with you or feeling emotional stress so I like using stress way in that blend and then I also add in some thieves sometimes so those 3 blends are actually unique to Young Living so you really can only get them if you are a young living customer but you could also just use the the oils that I just mentioned in for the daytime and that would also work so those are a bunch of the natural remedies that I personally use I want to recommend that you guys check out the blog post like I just mentioned you can find that in the description box below and I took a little bit more and I’m giving you a more detailed like recipe for all of those liquors and I talked a little bit more about the essential oils so make sure to check that out and of course

What is Parkinson’s Disease? How it Happens?

Parkinson's Disease


hi  today I’d like to discuss a question that is essential to our Foundation’s work what is Parkinson’s let’s start with some basic in the United States it is estimated that anywhere from 600,000 to 1 million people or more are living with Parkinson’s and at least 60,000 are diagnosed each year this makes P V one of the most common brain diseases second only to Alzheimer’s age increases the risk of Parkinson’s and the average age at diagnosis is 60 so as our population continues to grow older
more people are likely to experience PD in fact people tend to think of Parkinson’s as an older person’s disease but some get PD at 40 or even younger some diseases can be diagnosed with a lab test cholesterol levels and blood pressure are measured to evaluate for heart disease for example we need tests like that in Parkinson’s but they don’t exist yet doctors diagnose Parkinson’s by completing a medical history and physical examination they look for two of the three classic motor symptoms which are resting tremor stiffness and slowness of movement
when people hear about Parkinson’s they mostly think of these motor symptoms especially tremor but some people also experience walking and balance problems and PD affects other body systems constipation sleep problems cognitive changes and depression can occur sometimes even before a Parkinson’s diagnosis and some people report that they lose their sense of smell one of the hardest things about Parkinson’s is that everyone with the disease embarks on a unique journey in fact movement disorder specialists say if you’ve met one person with Parkinson’s you’ve met one person with Parkinson’s each person has their own mix of symptoms and there is no standard trajectory or path so if everyone gets their own version of Parkinson’s


Parkinson's Disease


and what does everyone with PD have in common to answer that let’s take a look inside the brain in Parkinson’s the brain cells that make dopamine stop working or die dopamine is a signaling chemicals or a neurotransmitter that coordinates movement as well as feelings of motivation and reward when dopamine cells die Parkinson’s symptoms emerge exactly why these cells die is not well understood researchers believe that in most people Parkinson’s is likely caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors but although certain environmental factors such as pesticides and head injury are associated with an increased risk of PD in most people there is no clear exposure we can point to as a straightforward cause of their Parkinson’s similarly while genetic mutations are linked to an increased risk of Parkinson’s based on

what we know today the vast majority of cases are not directly related to genetics however the field of genetics is moving fast in Parkinson’s as in many other diseases tremendous research is focused on genetics because this is our best opportunity to uncover paths to treatment breakthroughs but how do we treat Parkinson’s today here’s what I told my own patients when I was a doctor in clinical practice the currently available PD medications can’t slow or stop the progression of the disease but they can ease symptoms and help you continue doing much of what you have always done the same goes for certain surgical procedures which are a good option for people the most important point is that treatment regimens need to be individualized

so you should work closely with your doctor to determine what medication or combination of therapies work best for you and your symptoms speaking of doctors our foundation urges people with PD to see a movement disorder specialist if possible many people don’t get to these experts and we’d like to change that because the right doctor can help optimize your Parkinson’s care update you on research and drug development and direct you to clinical trials which are vital opportunities for you to advance scientific progress specialists can help you build the right care team and treatment regimen but there’s much more you can do to feel your back like making sure to eat well exercise and stay connected to others check out our full Parkinson’s 360 toolkit for advice

on living in the here and now with Parkinson’s as well as information on what to expect as Parkinson’s unfolds over time so what is Parkinson disease today it’s different things to different people but by working together urgently and with purpose we hope to make it a thing of the past for everybody at the Michael J Fox foundation our mission is nothing short of eradicating Parkinson’s altogether much work remains to be done but we’ve got many reasons to be optimistic as Michael J Fox says the latest research is the latest hope we’re closer than ever to new and better therapies even one second slow or stop the progression of the disease and until the day we find the cure and close our doors we promise we won’t stop
