There are many customs and beliefs of ancient times that are resurfacing due to YouTube. As the spread of home remedies, folk medicine, and alternative medicine is introduced, this can benefit the reader. It is Sunday so I wanted to talk a little bit about herbs and oils to benefit the body.
One oil that can really help people is castor oil. Use castor oil to grow thicker hair on your head, eyebrow, and eye lashes. Castor oil packing on the abdomen can help women with fertility issues and some say castor oil can reverse damage to breasts and uterus and ovaries. Another method of using castor oil is for belly bloat and belly fat. Simply place some drops of castor oil in your belly button before bed. Put a cloth over it and rest overnight. The next morning, you will probably have a bowel movement as the castor oil helps with bloating and constipation but it also expels unwanted elements from the digestive system like mucoid plaque and parasites that rob you of minerals and nutrients. You put it in your belly button because this was the original receptor of minerals and nutrients into your body as a baby and it is closely tied to circulatory and nervouse system. Castor oil can help with skin tone too. It is used in facials and deep cleans pores to smoothen skin, give it a glow, and reduce acne.
If you have brain issues, consider using oils on your third eye area. Remember all the passages of the Bible about anointing the head with oil? Shepherds do this to their sheep, placing oils on their heads to fight off pesky parasitic elements or insects. Use frankincese or myrrh to improve overall body health and beauty.
Another thing to consider is something called the sattvic diet in Ayurvedic. Food is medicine to the body so be careful what you intake. You want to eat Sattvic foods like raw fruits and vegetables and avoid low vibrational foods like mushroom fungi (decomposers and death eaters) or meat that has been adrenalized due to the suffering of an animal.
Replace sugar cravings with locally grown honey which hinders allergies to local pollen and is antimicrobial with lots of nutrients. Also consider incorporating the following foods in your daily diet: berries, apples, bananas, pineapples, pomegranates, and medjool dates, walnuts, almonds, and green veggies especially broccoli, kale, beets, watercress, etc. Be sure to eat foods that help your kidney and liver function for optimum energy and watch out for foods that will make you what doctors call insulin resistant. You want to be what’s called insulin sensitive. One herb that can really help you if you are prediabetic or diabetic is Rosemary. Incorporate this herb into your daily food to help lower onsulin and cortisol levels in the body. If you have thyroid issues, look into seaweed chips or seaweed flakes to add to dinner meals for iodine. If you have kidney concerns, look into something called an adrenal cocktail on YouTube.
Humans are just the same as plants. We need the sun to produce vitamin D in our bodies. Vitamin D deficiency is correlated to cancers, diabetes, Covid mortality, etc. You need sunshine to thrive and fresh air is better than HVAC systems because it naturally purifies the air of microbials that cause odors and illness. So get some walks in outside that don’t bring up your cortisol levels and cause adrenal fatigue like extended cardio. Breathe in the fresh air and let the sunshine absorb through your cells so they can generate just like a plant makes chlorophyll. If you find some dandelions along the path, pick the leaves to make a nutrient rich salad that can help lower acidity in the body.

Another important item to look for on your walk is red clover which in Amish medecine prevents cancer. The use of apple cidar vinegar actually comes from the Amish. They are way smarter people than modern society gives them credit for. Even hedge balls are supposed to be good for the body if chopped up. Gather a few and throw them under your house to keep spiders, snakes, and other insects away.
When you go to bed at night, drink a mug of warm milk mixed with honey, cinnamon, and ashwagandha powder. Get plenty of sleep. Drink lemon water and green tea during the day.
Avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning house. Consider the use of white vinegar to clean things and other healthier alternatives. And consider having your water tested to see how healthy it is for you. Your residence and resources can really determine your overall health so before you move somewhere look into the public health data. For example, I used to work in a town with an old ammunition plant nearby and fertilizer company. Rates of cancer were much higher there and often times we would have a ban on water consumption. Look into this data and the water data as well as lead or phosphorus levels. Study if the water source is surface or ground.
All of these tips are beneficial.
