7 Ways To Boost Your Mood… Naturally!

4c9d31fe-7a6a-4a3a-a2c8-71a1ae250249

Have you ever had one of those days where you just don’t want to be in a good mood? Waking up on the wrong side of the bed is part of life, but it doesn’t have to last. Simple activities like meditation, going for a walk or jamming out to your favorite song can all help relieve a sour mood.

Often times we turn to “comfort” food to put a smile on our face, but we all know that classic comfort dishes are not always the best thing for our health. Here are the Top 7 whole comfort foods that can kick that bad mood to the curb and make you feel great!

1. Chocolate
In its purest form, Raw Cacao naturally contains mood enhancing chemicals like Anandamide – taken from the Sanskrit word ananda, meaning joy, bliss or delight. No wonder we feel amazing after a good chocolate indulgence!

You’ll want to stick with raw, unadulterated cacao though – popular candy bars and truffles contain a lot of refined sugars and additives that do more harm than good.

2. Vitamin C
You know it’s good for your immune system… but did you know that Vitamin C also has a positive effect on your brain? This powerful antioxidant has been shown to decrease depressive symptoms by helping the body stop the buildup of free radicals and quickly recover from stress. Impressive, right?

All you need is a handful of Goji Berries, or add a teaspoon of Camu Camu Powder into your smoothie to get that C boost you need!

3. Omega-3 Fatty Acids
By now you have heard that you need Omega-3 fatty acids for a balanced diet, but you also need them for a balanced happy brain.

EPA and DHA are two crucial omega-3 fats that can actually help battle depression. These little mood-fighters go into the brain and help promote proper functioning of the neurotransmitters which regulate your mood.

4. Aromatherapy
If you’ve ever had a relaxing massage, or light candles and incense after a long day– you know that the effects of certain smells can do the body good. This is called aromatherapy.

The scent of Lavender has been shown to decrease feelings of sadness or depression and increase relaxation, while Ylang Ylang has been found to significantly increase calmness.

Other popular aromas such as rose, vanilla and coconut also promote feelings of happiness and calmness.

5. Tea
Sometimes you just need a good cup of tea to reset your mood. Tea is generally made of powerful herbs that can help an array of issues with our minds and bodies.

Early medicine has suggested that Pau D’Arco attracts alpha rays, which give human cells a positive electrical charge – promoting feelings of happiness, clarity and positivity.

Cat’s Claw is known to relax soreness or tightness in the body, and when combined with vanilla can be extremely therapeutic.

6. Honey
Sweet, sticky, delicious honey! Other than being far better for you than refined sugars, honey contains kaempferol and quercetin, which are phytochemicals that have the ability to prevent depression and keep your brain healthy!

Combined, these precious neuro-heroes reduce inflammation in the brain, promoting clear thinking and happy thoughts!

Did you know that honey can replace refined sugar in most recipes? In fact, you don’t even have to use as much! It can also be used with savory ingredients to create a delicious snack experience!

7. Antioxidants
We already covered vitamins and well known phytochemicals, but let’s talk about another group of antioxidants… flavonoids. This group of powerful compounds has been scientifically proven to have memory and mood enhancing properties.

You see, cumulative damage from free radicals occurs throughout the body but is especially present in memory decline, slowing of body movements and the fatigue, irritability, and mood disturbance that mark depression. Flavonoids kick these free radicals to the curb!

Want a colorful, flavonoid-packed boost to your daily regimen? Maqui Berries pack a punch and turn everything purple! Plus they’re delicious!

Awaken Ganoderma Coffee – Magic Medicinal Coffee

More commonly known as reishi, ganoderma is a hard, bitter mushroom used to promote health and longevity in traditional Chinese medicine. Proponents claim that ganoderma can relieve fatigue, keep cholesterol in check, curb high blood pressure, tame inflammation, build stamina, and support the immune system.

An increasingly popular natural remedy, ganoderma is used only as a medicinal mushroom and is not recommended for cooking.

Health Benefits of Ganoderma

Ganoderma shows promise in reducing cholesterol levels and easing allergy-related inflammation of the airways, according to preliminary evidence from animal-based studies. Here’s a look at more of the science behind ganoderma’s health-enhancing effects.

1) Cancer and the Immune System

Often used as an immune stimulant by people with cancer, ganoderma has been shown to strengthen immunity as well as combat cancer-cell proliferation. In a 2003 study of 34 people with advanced-stage cancer, for instance, taking ganoderma in supplement form three times daily for 12 weeks led to a significant increase in T-cells (known to play a central role in immune defense).

Lab tests on breast cancer cells, meanwhile, found that combining extracts of ganoderma and green tea heightened the mushroom’s ability to slow cancer-cell growth.

2) Antioxidant Benefits

Several small studies have suggested that regular use of ganoderma supplements may increase your levels of antioxidants, compounds thought to protect against disease and aging.

3) Relief of Urinary Tract Symptoms

In a 2008 study of 88 men with urinary tract symptoms, researchers found that ganoderma was significantly superior to placebo in providing symptom relief.

Other Common Uses

Acne
Allergies
Adrenal Fatigue
Arthritis
Candida
Common Cold
Herpes
HIV
Hair Loss
Lyme Disease
Ulcerative Colitis
Uterine Fibroids
Vitiligo
Weight Loss
Using Ganoderma For Health

Cupuacu – The Juggernaut of Super Fruits – Awaken Tropical Burst

Cupuacu – The Juggernaut of Super Fruits

Cupuacu is extremely popular in South America, especially Brazil, and is poised to become the next big super fruit to hit the U.S. Some nutritional food experts are saying that it will eclipse the popular Acai because it’s healthier, has the same benefits, and is easier to grow without destroying rain forests.

So what is Cupuacu, why is it better, and how can you get it?

About Cupuacu (cupuaçu)

Cupuacu is a tree that grows in the rainforest canopy in South America with the Latin name Theobroma Grandiflorum. The Cupuaçu belongs to the cocoa family and grows to a height of 12-20 meters (30-65 feet). The fruit of the tree, which is called by the same name, has been a primary food source for natives in the rainforest for centuries and has a creamy, exotic pulp at the center of a large melon.

The fruits are about the size of a medium-sized watermelon and become ripe from January to April, during the rainy season. These are gathered, split open, and the pulp is made into juice, ice cream, jam, tarts, smoothies and more. These are considered delicacies in many of the larger cities of South America, such as Rio, and are sold in shops of all description.

Traditionally it has been cultivated and used by indigenous peoples for centuries. Nutritionally, Cupuacu is very compact and full. The ìbeansî (seeds) were often given to people to chew to cure abdominal pains and the juice would be blessed by shamans and given to pregnant women, newlyweds who wanted children, and others for various maladies.

Cupuacu came to the attention of many westerners when a Japanese company attempted to trademark the name of the tree and fruit as well as the term ìCupulateî to sell as a chocolate coffee-like drink. Brazil finally declared Cupuacu to be the national fruit and the name to be ineligible for trademark.

The Nutrients in Cupuacu

Alone amongst every plant known, Cupuacu fruit has phytonutrient polyphenols (theograndins). These have a myriad of nutritional benefits, which will be discussed more thoroughly below.

Cupuacu is also heavy with vitamins B1, B2, B3 (Niacin), fatty and amino acids, and at least nine antioxidants (including Vitamins A and C). Being from the cocoa family, Cupuacu also has a high flavanoid content.

There are many other ingredients in the nutritional content of these rainforest fruits as well, including calcium, selenium, and others.

Nutritional and Health Benefits of Cupuacu

There are many health benefits to Cupuacu, most of which are tied to the fruit’s extremely potent phytonutrient polyphenols, anti-oxidants, essential nutrients, vitamins, and others mentioned earlier.

It’s primary health benefit is stimulating the immune system while simultaneously supporting the body’s ability to fight disease. Cupuacu has a caffeine-like effect, but does not contain caffeine. It is one of the few cocoa relatives that does not, yet it retains this energetic effect.

Most of the benefits of Cupuacu are synergistic. For instance, the energy-boosting effect mentioned comes primarily as a result of the fruit’s heightening of the immune system, lowering of blood pressure, and the body-boosting effects of the fast-acting nutrients and vitamins from the fruit. Unlike most energy drinks or caffeine, however, there is no ìdownî with Cupuacu. No tired feeling afterwards.

Still more synergistic effects include healthier skin and hair, lowered cholesterol levels (through lipid peroxidation inhibition), and better libido. These are some of the better benefits of the Cupuacu fruit.

Another huge benefit of the fruit is its extremely rich array and concentration of antioxidants. These have a large number of longer-term effects on the body including (and possibly most importantly) the neutralization of free radicals in the body’s tissues. The improved circulation and lowered blood pressure mentioned already aid in this process of eliminating those free radicals.

Others of these antioxidants are what help lower cholesterol levels, improve brain function, and more. Many of the essential vitamins and minerals are boosters for the gastro-intestinal system (explaining the fruit’s use by natives for GI problems) as well as a healthier cardio-vascular system.

How Cupuacu Compares to Acai

There are two major differences between Cupuacu and Acai. Both of them are at the root of why Cupuacu is better than Acai in a side-by-side comparison.

First, Acai is a small berry that grows in clumps similar to grapes (though the individual berries are smaller). This means that Acai, when picked, begins to lose many of its vitamins and antioxidants over time. The longer the berry sits after picking, the less value it has when juiced or pulped. The other major disadvantage of a small berry is its relative susceptibility to the elements and natural forces.

Secondly, Acai is very well known and has had a plethora of hucksters and sellers spinning it into some kind of cure-all. This has given it a bad public name in some respects, has lent a large amount of industrialized growth (rainforest trees are destroyed to make way for the Acai), and has generated some less-than-organic methods for cultivation and processing.

Those two things are the major differences between Cupuacu and Acai, at least until nutritional content is considered. Scientists in Brazil have analyzed both fruits and have found that, pound for pound, fresh-picked Acai has less-concentrated antioxidants, vitamins, etc. than Cupuacu.

Since Cupuacu is a melon-type fruit with a relatively thick skin, it is not prone to nutritional loss when picked and keeps for a longer period after picking before succumbing to rot than Acai does. Cupuacu trees produce more fruit per tree (measured by weight) than Acai does, and these trees are already naturally indigenous rainforest specimens.

Because Cupuacu is relatively new outside of South America, it has not been exposed to the hucksterism that Acai has and most sources are natural and organic in nature.

Although the two are different in some ways, the two fruits are very often combined (successfully) into juice drinks for sale in North America.

Where to Buy Cupuacu?

Cupuacu is available in many forms: shampoo, lotion, butter, ice cream, as a juice, as straight pulp, or even as the fruit itself.

Cupuacu is an exotic fruit that can be hard to come by in the United States, but with the internet, you can find anything… even Cupuacu products.

Sacred Smoking of Cannabis & The Tree of Life

I have to share this excellent video made by Jahn Illuminati Congo. He gives some of his perspectives on the origin and usage of Sacred Marijuana. I have always loved to study the parallels in different cultures and mystical traditions in their use of symbols, stories, and use of sacraments. Ganja has always been used in mystical tradition all over the ancient world. Jahn really breaks down and elaborates very clearly and concisely the similarities and mystical overstandings of the Sacred Ganja in its holy use for mankind. I know you will gain so much value from this informative video.

Illuminati Congo – Still Got My Sinse – Official Video

You must definitely watch this new music video by Illuminati Congo “Still got my Sinse”. Illuminati Congo is a friend of mine and “my personal favorite” underground artist! Me and him have done a couple tracks together on a Krishna Conscious hiphop project called Age of Gaura and also Mix of the Mystics

I enjoy this new song a lot because he raps about how his girlfriend left him, and how the ganja, the sinse, is there to comfort him, to help blanket the pain possibly or to just give a broader perspective. I connect to this song because I lost my woman too. She is my daughter’s mother and she broke my heart. And there have been plenty of times where I’ve used the holy herb to comfort my heart and help me see beyond my present pains and see a greater perspective on the situation. Ganja doesn’t solve the problem but it definitely can be used as a tool towards transformation. Besides all that, the song is just really fun and dope! lol

Marijuana and Hemp are so beneficial to the planet and human beings in countless ways, stay tuned for another post about that. Ganja truly is the Healing Herb, and by the way, this video is really well done and cool too! Illuminati Congo is lookin smooth in his hat, the girl in video is hot and the special effects are neat too! And also check out my other posts about Illuminati Congo’s other song “Chalawa” and his educational video about “Sacred Smoking of Cannabis & the Tree of Life”. So, until next time, Fiyah Blaze & Enjoy!

Kale is the New Beef!

Do you love Kale? Did you know that the highest sources of protein are found in dark leafy greens like Kale, more then in meat. How does the cow get its protein and how is the cow meat and milk so full of protein? It all comes from that green grass the cow eats all day. You see, protein is all just condensed sunlight and that sunlight protein is all stored in the dark green grasses and greens of the earth and gardens. Wheat grass, spinach, collards and kale all have such tremendous nutritional value. Today, we gonna talk more about Kale! Now, this is a repost of another blog because its just so good! I love Kale so I’m happy to share the glories of Kale to others!

 

Kale is the New Beef
by rawgirltoxicworld

Kale is such a staple in my diet, that I often forget to sing its praises. A friend asked the other day, “So what’s the big deal with kale, anyway?” After going through the laundry list of health benefits and nutrients, and ending with the declaration that kale is one of the most nutrient dense leafy greens on the planet, I realized I needed to show kale some public love. Apparently I am not the only one. Have you seen all the t-shirts and stickers available on the web for you to express your infatuation with kale? I used to work as a fashion designer, it seems ages ago, and black was the staple color that you compared everything to. One season grey may be the new black, the next it was red. Well in the old paradigm food world, beef and animal products were the standards, leaving all of us hippie veggie lovers on the outskirts like the weird kids in class. But times are a changing! Just like those popular kids in high school who were really cool back in the day but are now overweight and boring, those who preach the gospel of animal protein are starting to look shabbier than all the lean, energized, and bright-eyed vegetable eaters. Yeah, we were once the weird kids in class, but now we’re totally hot and our sexiness is way more sustainable. As a part of this shift, kale is becoming what beef was, a staple. Although I sometimes still go through the checkout line and have to explain to the person ringing me up what Lacinato (also called Dino kale) or green kale is, more and more people are singing the gospel of kale because, frankly, it’s awesome. Below are a couple of reasons you may want to join the new cool kids and learn more about purple, green, and dino kale and how you can incorporate them into your diet. If your already on team kale, I salute you. -XoXo Raw Girl

Supports Weight Loss. Kale is incredible low in calories, high in fiber, and has zero fat. Unlike a slab of steak on your plate, eating kale isn’t going to add anything to your waistline. In fact the fiber and nutrients will promote better digestion and proper elimination, all while providing you with some essential nutrition.

Potent Anti-Inflmmatory Food.
Kale is a power green leafy vegetable which solves a major issue that is plaguing the majority of people with chronic diseases or common skin issues: inflammation. Kale is an incredibly effective anti-inflammatory food and its omega-3 content adds to its anti-inflammatory properties. One cup of kale has 10% of the RDA of omega-3 fatty acids which is a key missing ingredient in standard modern diets leading to arthritis, autoimmune disorders, and other health problems.

Relieves Constipation.
For those who have never incorporated kale into your diet, one of the first things you’ll notice is that kale will get waste moving out of the body and induce a bowel movement fairly quickly. Why is this great? Because most people are full of s&%$# thus leading to chronic health problems, skin issues, and other conditions that could have been solved by getting waste moved out of the colon.

Nutritional Powerhouse. Kale is an excellent source of nutrition including vitamins A, C, K, E, B1, B2, B3, calcium, beta-carotene, phosphorous, iron, copper, magnesium, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and the carotenoid lutein. This cruciferous veggie is one of the richest sources of lutein which has been proven by research to be effective in protecting the skin from UV rays. The vitamin A content promotes the repair and maintenance of the skin, maintains healthy vision, and protects against lung and oral cancers.

The A Word. You cannot claim to be devoted to living a healthy, disease-free, and youth maintaining lifestyle if you are not getting enough foods with antioxidants. Kale is full of antioxidants which protect against cancers, fights free radicals, and promote youthfulness.

Kale Takes the Prize for Iron & Calcium. The next time a meat-eater taunts you for loving on your veggies you may want to serve up these facts to make them consider spending a little more time in the produce isle. Kale is high in calcium, in fact, kale has more calcium per calorie than milk and helps to prevent bone loss, osteoporosis, and maintain a healthy metabolism. So much for those “got milk” ads! That’s why I always say “got chlorophyll?” In addition to this kale has more iron per calorie than beef! Although most people think of veggie lovers as being anemic, more and more meat eaters are becoming anemic and could probably use a little kale in their lives. Iron is important because it is necessary for cell growth, the formation of hemoglobin, transporting oxygen throughout the body, and more.

If your still reading, you can now see the amazing qualities of the mighty Kale! There are many varieties of kale. There is the traditional hearty Green Leaf, Red Kale, Scotch Curled, Leaf and Spear, Dwarf Blue, Ragged Jack, Cavolo Nero (black cabbage), Siberian Blue, Tuscan, Lacinato and Dinosaur Kale. Some have crinkly-leaves, others have smooth leaves.

Kale is a great base for green smoothies. Adding apples, pears, kiwis, or oranges creates a nice balance. Kale is available year round, but is most abundant through the late fall and winter with peak months December through February. There is just so much to love about Kale!
