This specific plant is proven to treat tumors, diabetes and high blood sugar among many other health benefits. White mulberry is native to China. It was introduced into the United States in colonial times, during an attempt to establish a silk industry. Many plants that grow in these places are not as well known for its healing properties, just because they are mainly used for other industrial purposes. This is the case with the white mulberry tree. This tree is used for timber, and the fruit to feed silkworms, but its berries are very healthy and helpful for many serious diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and even tumors. This Plant Is Everywhere, But You Had No Idea It Can Treat Tumors, Diabetes And High Blood Pressure! The wood is very flexible and durable and has been used to make tennis rackets, hockey sticks, furniture, and boats. White mulberry has been researched in the treatment of diabetes, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, the common cold and its symptoms, muscle and joint pain such as arthritis, constipation, dizziness, ringing in the ears, hair loss, and premature graying. How does it work? The most important compounds found in the white mulberry work in a similar way to some medicines used for type 2 diabetes. They slow the breakdown of sugars in the gut and allow them to be absorbed more slowly into the blood. This helps the body keep the blood sugar levels in the desirable range. White mulberry contains organic acids, plenty of vitamin C, carotene, pectin, fiber, inverted sugar, resin … These active ingredients help with tonsillitis, for the treatment of cough, fever, diarrhea, headaches and inflammation. It is also rich in antioxidants, and a regular usage can considerably reduce the blood cholesterol, and long term it also helps with heart disease. A study conducted at the University of Texas found that white mulberry berries contain resveratrol, a natural phenol that is effective in fighting several types of cancer and heart disease. White mulberry delivers many health benefits, however the plant’s ability to lower blood sugar has attracted the most attention. There are multiple health problems that arise when our body processes too much sugar (obesity, diabetes, inflammation). If a natural remedy can eliminate the excess sugar in our bloodstream, then that is certainly important news. Recent studies have shown that eating an extract of white mulberry does in fact help the body process sugar. The white mulberry is especially researched and proved to help lower the level of the sugar in the blood, but researchers now are continuing to discover its abilities to treat tumors. The white mulberry plant can prevent big spikes of sugar in our bloodstream after we eat a meal. We are sure you have seen the white mulberry tree and its fruit but you didn’t think of its benefits for our health. Now, you can use this information from this article to improve your health and go buy some white mulberries and treat tumor, diabetes and heart disease among other benefits. You Might Also Like

Solar Backyard Chicken-Coop Building Plans 4/14/2016 9:48:00 AM By Steve Maxwell Tags: chickens, poultry, chicken coops, building plans, DIY projects, raising livestock, Steve Maxwell, Ontario, Canada We’ve kept chickens on our Manitoulin Island homestead since 2002, and experience has taught me something that no one made clear to me beforehand. When it comes to chicken coops, a handful of smaller, semi-portable coops are better than one large, permanently anchored house. I call this approach “modularity”, and I’ve worked this ideas into some free plans you can download. The big problem with permanent chicken houses is that they’re always troublesome and expensive to build. Lack of flexibility means they offer no chance to reduce or expand flock size, either. You’ve got what you’ve got when it comes to coop size. Keeping chickens in one place in a permanent coop turns that area of your yard into a dusty, vegetation-free wasteland. Permanent coops are also difficult to heat with winter sun – an issue that really matters where I live in Canada. All this is why I’ve come to prefer one or more smaller, semi-portable backyard chicken barns that can be mixed and matched in different ways. We use one to raise day-old chicks, others as production houses for adult birds. Add another house if you want to separate some birds because of disease of bullying. The modular coop I designed is solid and exceptionally warm in winter because of the clear, solar roof, yet also easily ventilated in summer by hinging open the roof. Simple to build, this design can be moved to new locations when needed. Individual modules can be pulled out of production for a time to break pest cycles, and they're easy to clean without standing in poop. Although my solar-heated design looks fancy, it’s really only a box made of 5/8-inch plywood with trim. Nothing this substantial could be easier to build. My design sits on legs that raise the structure off the ground, and there are two reasons for this. First, it keeps the wood of the coop high, dry and away from rot-promoting soil. Raising the height of a chicken house like this also makes it perfect for winter use in areas that get snow. I used 1” diameter galvanized steel pipes for my chicken house legs, but you could also put it on some replaceable 4x4s. The opportunity to collect eggs without opening the chicken door is one advantage of the clear, hinged solar roof. Simply swivel the top upwards, reach down into whatever nesting box you’re using, then retrieve the eggs. You can also replenish feed and water this way, too. Although hens can get in an out of a very small door, having a large door makes it easier to move feed and water in from the side if you want, and move out manure when it’s time to clean the houses. In my design nearly one whole side swings outwards, with no lip above the floor level. Manure and bedding is easy to scrape out. There are more details here than I have space for, but you can download free plans for my chicken barn at BaileyLineRoad.com/chickens. As practical as it is to keep backyard chickens, the real attraction for me is also because these birds are great fun to watch. In a world with too many screens in front of us, it’s refreshing to be entertained by something non-digital for a change. Try it and you’ll understand what they mean by “chicken TV."

Today’s modern medicine may not be the only hope in getting rid of pain. Herbal medicines are becoming more and more popular every day, and that is for a reason. Herbal medicines are trusted to cure many ailments. Experts agree that there is a list of other positive uses such as reducing inflammation and reducing body toxin levels. But it this post we decided to share specific herbal medicines that act as pain killers. Below are some of the most powerful options for natural pain relief: 1. Capsaicin (Chili Peppers) chili-peppers Capsaicin is a substance found in chili peppers which is literally responsible for the fireworks in your mouth when you bite one. “Capsaicin works by depleting Substance P, a compound that conveys the pain sensation from the peripheral to the central nervous system. It takes a couple of days for this to occur,” said David Kiefer, MD, assistant clinical professor of medicine at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine. How to use it as a remedy: For osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetic neuropathy, apply an over-the- counter cream containing 0.025 percent capsaicin to aching joints or feet 4 times a day for 3 to 4 weeks. About 40 percent of people who try this experience stinging, burning or skin redness at first, but these effects fade as capsaicin desensitizes nerves. To treat colds, sprinkle chili (flakes, powder or finely chopped fresh chili) onto your food. The heat will stimulate drainage from the nasal and sinus passages. When consumed fresh, chilies are considered to be a good source of Vitamin C. However, you should eat them in moderation, as eating big amounts may cause nausea, stomach pain or diarrhea. 2. Ginger ginger Ginger has been used as a medicine for thousands of years. According to a study by Dr. Krishna C. Srivastava, a world-renowned researcher on the effects of spices at Odense University of Denmark, Ginger is found to be an effective pain killer for treating arthritis. Daily consumption of ginger will significantly lower the pain, swelling and morning stiffness. How to use it as a remedy: The best way to consume ginger for pain relief is making a ginger tea. 3. Feverfew feverfew Even its name makes it obvious that feverfew is indeed a powerful natural pain killer. It is an affective cure for headaches, stomachaches and toothaches. Feverfew contains Parthenolide which is a chemical that decreases factors in the body that might cause migraine headaches. How to use it as a remedy: Consuming two to three of the bitter-tasting dried leaves each day constitutes a medicinal dosage. Limit consumption to a maximum of four or five leaves a day. Beware as mouth irritation may occur. 4. Devil’s claw devils-claw The name sounds scary right? Devil’s claw actually contains chemicals that might decrease inflammation and swelling and resulting pain. It is used for hardening of the arteries, arthritis, gout, muscle pain, back pain, tendonitis, chest pain, gastrointestinal upset or heart burn, fever, and migraine headaches. It is also used for difficulties in childbirth, menstrual problems, allergic reactions, loss of appetite, and kidney and bladder disease. How to use it as a remedy: Drink a strong decoction of Devil’s claw once a day for slow but steady relief of join pain caused by both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, sports injuries and muscle pain. Note: Devil’s claw is not recommended for those with an ulcer. High doses could interfere with blood pressure, heart, and diabetes medications. 5. Valerian Root valerian-root Valerian root is commonly used to aid in sleeping problems like insomnia, tension, and nervousness. This herbal medicine can also be used to cure spasms and muscle cramps. Also, many women claim that it helps them manage menstrual cramps and symptoms associated with menopause, including hot flashes and anxiety. How to use it as a remedy: Valerian root may be dried for teas or used fresh or dried for tinctures. The tincture method is found to be the most effective. Take 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon at a time. Take 3/4 to 1 teaspoon before bed time to deal with insomnia. Take one to three times a day for anxiety, tension, and high blood pressure. Start with a low dose and increase as needed. A bathtub full of warm water with 2 cups of tea added is considered a soothing method to restore restful sleep. Note: Valerian occasionally has the opposite effects of that intended, stimulating instead of sedating. When used for insomnia, in rare cases, valerian can cause morning grogginess in some people. Reducing the dosage usually alleviates the problem. We advise you to consult with your doctor first before you try out any of these home remedies.

“Because it works” is not a good enough answer. Here’s why. BY MATTHEW SHERRINGTON ON JULY 4, 2016 AT 2:00 PM CATEGORY : LATEST POSTS RESPONSES : 4 COMMENTS success-and-failure-signWhat is success in fundraising? And what is failure? That might seem a ridiculously simple and binary question with a ridiculously simple and binary answer: it’s what works, and what does not. And yet it isn’t that simple, is it? It all depends on what you’re measuring. Where you start. What your target is and what it might take to reach it. How you compare with others. The trauma that’s hit fundraising in the UK over the last year has raised a lot more questions, many of which don’t have easy answers but still have a bearing on what success looks like. If you aren’t from the UK, don’t be complacent. This is something where we’re just ahead of you, which could easily jump borders. Our Brexit won’t protect you. “What works”, taken out the immediate metrics of response rates, average gifts, net income and ROIs, now has to answer “for whom”? Because it’s clear that a lot of fundraising activity has got a lot of people rather disenchanted with charities, and once they realised they weren’t alone in feeling that, they’ve been vocal about it. The media has been awash with stories confirming their negative experiences of excessive mail, intrusive phone calls, and irritating face-to-face fundraising. Trust has fallen quite dramatically. Just last week, the UK Charity Commission issued a report showing trust in charities has fallen 15%, from a score of 6.7 out of 10 in 2014, to 5.7 out of 10 this year. Fundraising isn’t working for donors, or the wider public. Ah, but we’re still getting good results, comes the reply. Who cares? It’s working for beneficiaries, for whom we raise the money, isn’t it? But at what cost, I’d ask? Do the ends justify the means? Is there longer-term and wider damage? It’s hard to say, because we enter territory without too many metrics (though initiatives like the Commission on the Donor Experience are working on that). We enter questions around ethics and values, and have to think about public perception and the risk of brand damage. We have to use judgement, as well as raw evidence. I’ve written here before on this question as it relates to the representation of those we serve. Some speculative wishful thinking is in order until we know more about the full impact we’re having. There’s a commercial example in the UK right now. Tesco, the largest supermarket in the UK, has been selling a lot of its fresh food – meat, fruit and vegetables – under fictional farm brands. Essentially, these take advantage of the whole ‘buy local’ idea, with people imagining they get better quality and support local farmers at the same time, Even though much of the produce comes from as far and wide around the world as it ever did. Tesco says it works, that it’s making a difference to their bottom line. But is that ok, when it’s pretending to be something it’s not? Doesn’t that just eat further away at credibility, authenticity, and trust? Our fundraising faces similar challenges. What’s really got the UK fundraising sector thinking is the question of the cumulative impact of fundraising on individuals. As single charities, we all make our own rational decisions. Everything ‘works’ in our own little world of metrics. We look after ‘our’ supporters with a view on how often it might be reasonable to contact them. But we forget that generous people support a lot of charities, and that adds up to a lot of contact. What we’re dealing here is an example of ‘the tragedy of the commons – that economic theory that explains how the rational decision-making of everyone in a community, can lead to the destruction of the common resource. (For example, pastoralists all increasing their herds of goats, leading to overgrazing of fragile land, and ecological disaster). Sixteen years ago, the UK fundraising sector set up a regulatory body to manage face to face fundraising, managing and allocating street sites in conjunction with local authorities, specifically to avoid a gold rush that would lead to the end for everyone. It really hasn’t done a bad job. And now we are faced with whether we have been doing this with everything else. Is our fundraising activity sustainable? Is it ‘working’ for the sector at large? Is it working for our future, in terms of public trust, supporter relationships, and longer-term income? Copy Copy CopyAll of this provoked a great debate recently about innovation and best practice: Joe Jenkins asked whether our sector’s culture of sharing and copying was contributing to the homogenisation of fundraising, a reduction to the lowest common denominator. Claire Axelrad responded, arguing that sharing and copying spread best practice that raised more money. A cry of “it works”? Maybe. I’ve complained on SOFII (“it won’t work here”) about fundraisers’ reluctance to learn and copy. Copying is the greatest form of flattery, and the quickest way to innovation success (as laid out in Mark Earl’s fun book, “Copy, Copy, Copy”, but the trick of course, is to adapt what you see and learn to work for you, and do it differently, as Derek Humphries nicely summed up (“Don’t cut and paste”). I think we’d all agree with that. Joe’s is an important challenge, to think about how we forge new paths to keep things fresh and not destroy our ‘commons’ before their time. Claire’s is an important argument too. Not all charities have the resources to test and innovate, and rely on watching those that do, and copying what they hear is best practice. “What works”. It’s all part of our fundraising ecology. Oxfam water pack outerWhich reminds me of my biggest direct mail failure, which I’m happy to share. At Oxfam we had a very successful direct mail pack for new supporter recruitment. It had been working for ten years, beating every new idea we tested against it. Determined to crack it, we put our agency on the case, with two creative teams and a whirl through their innovation hothouse. We deconstructed all we knew made a difference to results – engagement devices that were relevant to the brand story, and tactile, the latest on format design. We spent more time on it than on any other creative development. Whatever. God knows how we ended up with this. It bombed, as common sense should have told us it would. (We did beat that pack in the end). Does my challenge that “because it works’ is no longer a good enough answer, change the importance of testing, learning and improving? No, of course not. It’s just that the question “what works?” has got a whole lot bigger, and we’ve all got to pay attention to that. It’s not just about the numbers. Public trust is our lifeblood, more than the money, for without it, the money won’t follow. Public trust is our common good, and that’s what we all have to look after. Including you. As the Lorax said: “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.
10 CANCER-CAUSING FOODS YOU SHOULD NEVER PUT IN YOUR MOUTH AGAIN ALEXA ERICKSONJULY 1, 2016 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter 1.2K SHARES While no one goes around trying to consume things that will make them ill, the truth of the matter is, there are many unnatural products out there that can wreak havoc on our health. The American Institute for Cancer even states on their website that, “of the most common US cancers, about one third of the cases are preventable through a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight. This translates to approximately 350,000 preventable cases of cancer this year.” advertisement - learn more While cancer can feel like an inescapable disease, it’s helpful to know there are steps you can take to minimize your risk of developing it. But first, you need to know about the following 10 toxins to avoid: 1. Processed Meats From hot dogs, sausages, and bacon to most luncheon meats, processed meats contain chemicals and excessive amounts of salt that damage your health. A study published in the journal BMC Medicine found an overwhelming association between processed meat and cardiovascular disease and cancer. “Overall, we estimate that 3% of premature deaths each year could be prevented if people ate less than 20g processed meat per day,” explained Prof Sabine Rohrmann from the University of Zurich, who led this analysis. 2. BPA-Lined Cans BPA, which stands for bisphenol A, is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. Found in hard plastics and resins, and used to coat metal cans, research has linked BPA to cancer, infertility, diabetes, and obesity. 3. Cured And Smoked Foods Smoked and cured foods often use nitrites and nitrates to act as preservatives and prevent food from spoiling, but when cooked, those chemicals change into byproducts called N-nitroso compounds, such as nitrosamines and nitrosamides. One study, for instance, of nearly 10,000 adult males and a 24-year follow-up, revealed a relationship between sodium nitrates from smoked fish and colorectal cancer. 4. Microwave Popcorn Microwave popcorn is a convenient and relatively healthy snack, but the bag it comes in is another story. Many microwave popcorn bags are lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (or PFOA). This toxin has been found to significantly increase the risk of breast, bladder, kidney, prostate, thyroid, colorectal, lung, leukemia, and lymphoma cancers. 5. GMOs GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) have infiltrated our food supply and become quite controversial. One study found that Roundup-treated GM corn as well as the herbicide used on it increases cancer in rats. Glyphosate—the main ingredient in Monsanto’s widely used herbicide Roundup—has been exposed as a potential endocrine disruptor, which can cause cancer tumors. 6. Sugar Sugar continues to negatively impact our diet, as we fight to find ways to keep it out while still enjoying sweet sensations. Cancer cells thrive on sugar, as well as any food that converts to sugar, like grains, pastas, carbs, breads, and many fruits. Eliminating sugar is key. One study from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center found that diets high in sugar are a major risk factor for certain types of cancers, especially breast cancer. 7. Hydrogenated Oils Also known as trans-fats, hydrogenated oils are a man-made product whose chemical structure has been altered to increase shelf life. Chemicals are also used to mask the odor and change the taste of the oil. Research has confirmed that hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils present in industrial processed food double the risk of breast cancer. 8. Sodas Sodas are filled with loads of added sugar and empty calories. Linked to weight gain, inflammation, and insulin resistance, they also contain a slew of artificial colorings and chemicals foreign to the body. This makes it no surprise that research has linked drinking soda to a higher risk of cancer, including pancreatic cancer. 9. Soy Protein Isolate While unprocessed soybeans offer individuals an excellent source of protein, among other things, 90-95 percent of U.S.-grown soybeans, used to create soy protein isolate, have been genetically modified to withstand herbicides. Soy protein isolates are known to contain anti-nutrients that can hinder the body’s ability to digest food and absorb the nutrients into the bloodstream. Foods high in isoflavones—which are weak estrogen-like compounds—like soy protein isolate, have also been found to promote the development, growth, and spread of breast cancers in some individuals. 10. White Flour Commercially-grown grains like white flour start off as seeds that are treated with fungicide. The plants are then sprayed with pesticides, harvested, and stored in bins coated with insecticides—all of which increase toxicity. Grains are then processed using high temperatures and high speed rollers, often using chlorine oxide as a whitener. The end result is a starch absent of nutrients, rich in toxins, and potentially carcinogenic. Scientific evidence indicates that bleached white flour significantly raises the risk of lung cancer as well.

100 Times More Effective Then Chemotherapy: A Herb That Kills Cancer Cells In 48 Hours April 22, 2016healthylife kkl Recent researches have given new hope to patients suffering from cancer. While our ancestors knew that dandelion syrup contains many healing properties, now it is discovered that the root of this herb can help patients suffering from cancer. The University of Windsor in Canada conducted a study at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Scientists have found that dandelion tea “works” better than chemotherapy because it affects cancer cells by disintegrating them within 48 hours, while leaving healthy cells unaffected. Because of the excellent results, the research team received additional support to continue studying this herb. John DiCarlo, age 72, has witnessed the healing properties of dandelion root, while having cancer treatments for 3 years. As an alternative, he has been drinking tea from dandelion root, and after only four months, he experienced complete remission, writes Webtribune.

Filipino priest spreads the good news via organic farming Church should not only address spiritual needs but also social needs Mark SaludesJune 16, 2016 Philippines Global Pulse MoreGlobal Pulse PrintGlobal Pulse More Filipino priest spreads the good news via organic farming Father Manuel Catral visits a trial farm in the town of Baggao in Cagayan province. (Photo: ucanews.com/Mark Saludes) t was the end of another day. The sky displayed a soft glowing ray of light as the sun dipped into the horizon of Solana town in the northern Philippine province of Cagayan. The animals had been brought to the shed, but for Father Manuel Vicente Catral work was far from over. The priest still had to meet his neighbors — all farmers living around the small hamlet they call home. "I asked to be assigned to the poorest villages of Solana," said Father Catral. The priest explained he wanted to understand their situation. Father Catral first arrived in 2007 and stayed in a hut in the middle of a farm. He had nothing but the view of vast green rice fields. "You know it’s five o'clock in the morning because you will hear people working in the fields," he said. In the evenings, the priest sits with the farmers. "They tell their stories," said Father Catral. "They talk about the irrigation fees, usury, and the oppressive situation they are in." He started organizing the people, and later conducted a study to understand the state of agriculture in the area and its impact on the community. "My driving force was to convert the land where my hut stands into a model of sustainable farming," he said. The priest, who was born to a middle class family, soon got his hands dirty. He became familiar with the animals and tended the vines, vegetables and root crops that flourished in the dark earth. As time passed, the priest was able to implement the idea of diversified but integrated farming by creating his own farm. Pigs, cows, a number of goats and sheep, and a couple of water buffaloes now roam there. "The integration of animals in the farm provides another source of income," the priest said. In front of his hut, which also serves as his convent, is a fishpond surrounded by vegetable plots, climbing plants, and root crops. Around the compound is a rice field where 50 varieties of rice grow. "We are testing which kind of rice grain should be planted in different weather conditions," explained Father Catral. In the shade is a compost pit where the farm's organic fertilizer comes from. "It's one of the most important things in the farm," he said. "It’s a big help for us," said Melecio Elchico, a 46-year-old farmer who claimed that he has cut his expenses by 70 percent from using the organic fertilizer. "It also brought the land back to life," he continued. "The land is slowly recovering from acidity and poison caused by synthetic fertilizers." Father Manuel Catral sits on the steps of his old hut in Solana town where he first experimented with organic farming. (Photo: ucanews.com/Mark Saludes) Integral evangelization Archbishop Sergio Utleg of Tuguegarao saw the efforts Father Catral made on his small farm and thought the community was ripe to be turned into a parish. The community already had 79 basic ecclesial communities, with up to 60 families in every community. Several ministries — lay liturgy, family life, social action, youth and education — were established in the 16 villages. "The farming program we introduced and implemented contributed to the people's willingness to participate in church activities," said Father Catral. In 2007, the Holy Family Parish was officially created through the efforts of the community. "The poor communities built the parish," the priest said. "It was not us who brought the church to them," he continued. "But it was them who saw the need for a institution that recognizes their plight and serves their interests." The trial farm that Father Catral and the farmers of Solana built was turned into a model farm in 2009. The archdiocese created a socio-pastoral institution to teach farmers the diversified-integrated farming system. "The center is a model of how to translate Laudato si [the Pope’s recent encyclical] into action," said Archbishop Utleg. He said the promotion of organic farming would help poor farmers in the archdiocese. "One way of fulfilling the Jubilee Year of Mercy is for the church to lead the poor into the betterment of their lives," said Archbishop Utleg. As for Father Catral, he now serves as parish priest of another town where he continues his "mission to deliver the good news to the people through organic farming." The farmer-priest said the Catholic Church is a "church of the poor," that is why church people "should address not just their spiritual needs but also the people's social needs."

20 Diuretic Foods to Detox, Lose Weight, and Lower Your Blood Pressure The Hearty Soul The Hearty Soul
20 Diuretic Foods to Detox, Lose Weight, and Lower Your Blood Pressure The Hearty Soul The Hearty Soul 71k 115 1 Diuretic foods can be helpful if you’re looking to lower your blood pressure, or if you’re retaining water. Some dieters also use it to help them lose weight, and purging the body of excess fluid is good for your overall health and wellbeing. One option is to take water pills in order to get your body to release extra water and salt, but before going that route it may be a better idea to make a few dietary changes and see if that helps. Here are our picks for the best diuretic foods available to keep things natural. 1 1. Lemon Adding lemon to your water doesn’t just make it taste better, it can help you if you have high blood pressure, and is often one of the first foods recommended to those suffering from certain medical conditions. It’s easy enough to start getting more lemon into your life, because it’s the juice that does the trick, so you don’t actually have to eat lemon slices or wedges, just add the juice to water or other foods and you’ll get the benefits. It is also used to help treat cases of urinary tract infection. 2. Oats Oats consistently rank as one of the best foods to eat when losing weight, and surprisingly enough they have a diuretic effect on the body. Most of the time it’s hydrating fruits and vegetables that are diuretics, and oats seem to be a food that soaks things up, the way it soaks cholesterol up. But oats can also give you relief if you’re retaining water. This is just one more reason why a bowl of oatmeal makes a great start to your day, regardless if you’re dieting or worrying about your cholesterol levels. 3. Celery Celery contains plenty of water, and will therefore get you to go more often. It’s great for hydrating the body, and recent research has shown that it’s not just the water we drink that hydrates us, but the water we take in from foods as well. If you don’t care for the taste of celery, or don’t like having to chew it up, try adding it to a diuretic smoothie with other fruits and vegetables found on this page. You’ll be giving your body a big boost of nutrition and also make it easier to digest and process. 4. Brussels Sprouts Perhaps you don’t enjoy the taste of Brussels sprouts, but they’re so good for you that you may just have to learn to like them, or at least tolerate them. They are just one of several cruciferous vegetables to make our list, and this is a low calorie food that has plenty of antioxidants and is great for your overall health. If you can’t stand the thought of a pile of Brussels sprouts as your side dish, try mixing them with other vegetables or incorporate them into your main dish so you’re not just eating them straight up. 5. Ginger It’s not easy to eat a lot of ginger, and luckily you don’t have to. Using it to zest up your meal, or adding a bit of ginger root to a glass of water will give you the benefits you need from it. It has a nice cleansing effect on the body, and is often used in detox programs to help flush out toxins. It also serves as a diuretic, and will help your body get rid of any built up fluid it may have. Next time you’re grocery shopping, buy some ginger root. You’ll be surprised how often you use it when you have it handy. 2 6. Beets In addition to being a diuretic, beets are also a rich source of antioxidants and have a specific antioxidant, betalain, which is only found in a few select foods. When choosing what style of beet to eat, go for fresh beets that you can either grill, boil, or steam. These are better for you than the pickled variety, and will yield more antioxidants for better overall well-being for the body. Unfortunately most beets you’ll find for sale in supermarkets and grocery stores are the pickled kind, so you may have to check out a farmer’s market or other vegetable stand to find fresh beets. 7. Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar has a number of uses, and one of those is that it’s a natural diuretic that can encourage your body to purge itself of unneeded fluids, leading to better urinary function and overall health. You can use apple cider vinegar to help purify water, and to help stir up a sluggish digestive system. You’ll also find it used in plenty of recipes, but if you’re trying to use it as a diuretic it’s best just to add it to water and drink it down. You don’t need to use very much of it in order to benefit from it. 8. Cabbage Cabbage is a healthy food no matter how you cut it, and part of the benefits it provides is being a diuretic food. It’s also been shown to be helpful in preventing cancer, and is a vegetable that can help reduce the risk of heart disease. One great way to eat cabbage is in soup form. This entails chopping or shredding the cabbage so it’s easier to eat, and also cooking it until it’s very tender. The key is not to use too much salt when you make your cabbage soup, as that will reduce the diuretic effect of helping the body release stored up sodium. 9. Cranberry Juice Perhaps you’ve heard that cranberry juice can be good for a urinary tract infection, and that’s partly because it acts as a diuretic. The nice feature of cranberry juice is that it leaves your potassium levels intact, and also provides extra antioxidants to help your body battle free radicals. Be sure to opt for organic cranberry juice for the most benefit, since you’ll be avoiding the use of conventional berries which most likely have been treated with chemicals during the growing and preservation process. 10. Eggplant Eggplant acts as a natural diuretic, and there are some weight loss enthusiasts that will make a special “eggplant water” by boiling eggplants and drinking the leftover water in an effort to lose water weight. That’s a bit excessive, but you can still consume these a side dish to just about any meal and experience the side effects a diuretic provides. 3 11. Parsley Not just a pretty adornment to your plate, parsley has several benefits to it, including being a natural diuretic. Parsley contains several types of antioxidants in one tiny package. You can add parsley to your water for a fresh taste, or you can use it more in your cooking if you don’t want to eat it directly. The tart taste can act to freshen your breath in the process, but it might be too strong for some palates. 12. Caffeinated Beverages Any caffeinated beverage will serve as a diuretic, including coffee and tea. It’s best to weigh the pros and cons of the foods that you’re thinking of consuming for their diuretic effect. The caffeine in these beverages might be disadvantageous enough to the body to choose other foods and drinks that provide a similar function without the use of a chemical like caffeine. 13. Water Even though it might sound counterintuitive, drinking water actually helps your body rid itself of excess fluid. Conversely, not drinking enough water can lead to your body retaining the water it has in order to try to keep its water levels where they need to be. If you want to increase its diuretic effect try squeezing the juice of a lemon into it, or drinking hot water with slices of ginger in it for a sort of ginger tea. These methods will amplify the diuretic effect because these add-ins are also on our list of diuretic foods. 14. Tomatoes For the diuretic effect you’ll want to eat tomatoes raw. The best way to do this is on a salad, or blending them up for fresh tomato juice. If you don’t like the taste of plain tomato juice consider adding carrots or watermelon to it to increase the effect and improve the flavor. Tomatoes are also one of the healthiest foods you can eat, with their large amounts of the antioxidant lycopene they’ve been shown to help battle cancer and prevent heart disease of all types. 15. Cucumber Cucumbers are made up mostly of water and are a very hydrating vegetable. This is why you’ll typically see them being used in detox recipes. They’ll get your urinary system going as well, and they are a food that can be used to help with diabetes, weight loss, and even cancer. That’s because cucumbers contain antioxidants as well as minerals the body needs daily to keep functioning at its best. 4 16. Watermelon Watermelon is aptly named and contains a lot of water, and also gets you to go more, so you’ll be helping to flush your body of excessive water and salt. You’ll want to be careful not to each too much watermelon in one sitting, as it can be hard to stop eating this sweet fruit, but its sweetness can cause your blood glucose levels to spike and can negate the healthy benefits of this antioxidant-laden fruit. 17. Carrots Carrots are often thought of for their benefit to eyesight, but they do have a host of other benefits, and being a natural diuretic is one of them. Carrots are great because they come in a few different varieties depending on how you want to use them. Baby carrots are great for having as a snack or going on top of salads. Regular sized carrots can get sliced and chopped for use in recipes or cooked up as a side dish to a meal. No matter how you go about eating them, you’ll still get all of the nutrients as well as the diuretic effect they provide. 18. Garlic Garlic provides a cleansing effect, and also acts as a diuretic, which is all the more reason to use it in more of your cooking. It has yet to be shown that garlic pills are a diuretic as well, and it appears that eating garlic in it’s natural form, or in powder form, is the way to go if this is your goal. You don’t have to eat clove after clove of garlic to reap the benefits, and just using it as part of the cooking process should be enough to see results. 19. Artichokes Artichokes can have a powerful diuretic effect, and can rival the effects of prescription medication in some instances. The good news is that artichokes are also good for the digestive system, so if you’re looking to lose weight it can help you on two levels. They’re also packed with vitamins and minerals, so you’re replenishing the body at the same time you’re helping it to rid itself of excess fluid. 20. Asparagus Asparagus is one of the healthier vegetables around, so you’ll be getting plenty of nutrients in addition to the diuretic properties it has. Many have noted that eating asparagus makes their urine smell, and this is one way to see the connection between this veggie and your urinary system. The odor is caused by an acid found within the asparagus that reacts in a certain way. It’s not harmful to the body, and in fact the antioxidants found in asparagus is going to benefit you in countless ways. P.S.
