Manuka honey

THIS Type of RAW HONEY Kills Every Kind of Bacteria Scientists Could Throw At It (Even the Super-Bugs!) ManukaHoney THIS Type of RAW HONEY Kills Every Kind of Bacteria Scientists Could Throw At It (Even the Super-Bugs!) FacebookTwitterGoogle+Pinterest Here at Healthy Holistic Living, we search the web for health content to share with you. This article was shared with permission from our friends at The health benefits of raw, unprocessed honey are well known, but in Australia, scientists recently made a startling discovery – that one particular, obscure type of honey is capable of killing just about everything scientists throw at it, including some of the worst bacteria known to man. The findings were published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (June 2009 edition), and could hold special significance at a time when many of the world’s top antibiotics are failing, especially against resistant “superbugs.” The honey in question is known as manuka honey, which is produced in New Zealand and also goes by the name of jelly bush honey. The honey has become so popular in the past few years that shortages have been reported and fake products have been sold, leading New Zealand manuka producers to seek trademark protection (similar to French champagne or Scottish whiskey for example). It’s easy to see why now that the secret is out about this honey’s incredible health benefits. honey Manuka Honey Kills MRSA, Other Superbugs Manuka honey is created by bees foraging on the nectar of Leptospermum Scoparium, the New Zealand manuka bush, as well as tea trees native only to Australia and New Zealand. In the aforementioned studies, Australian researchers found that the honey killed every bacteria or pathogen it was tested on, according to a report by The Australian. The honey can be applied topically to help fight against infections of the skin, cuts and insect bites, or taken internally. Manuka HoneyThe most exciting difference with the manuka honey that was tested is that none of superbugs killed by the honey were able to build up immunity, a common problem with today’s antibiotics. “New antibiotics tend to have short shelf lives, as the bacteria they attack quickly become resistant,” said Dr. Dee Carter of the University of Sydney’s School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences. “Many large pharmaceutical companies have abandoned antibiotic production because of the difficulty of recovering costs. Developing effective alternatives could therefore save many lives.” According to Dr. Carter the manuka honey contains a compound called methyglyoxal, that combines with other unknown compounds to cause “multi-system failure” that destroys the bacteria. Where to Find Manuka Honey Manuka honey is now sold in health food stores and online, although the supply levels have fluctuated in recent years and fake honey scams have been documented. When looking for manuka honey it is best to look for one that is UMF certified. The term UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor, which is the phytochemical property derived from the manuka bushes that gives it its unique properties. This term is regulated by the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association of New Zealand and a handful of certified manuka products can be found on The brand Comvita manuka honey is available on Amazon and is UMF certified. One particular customer on Amazon said that it this type of honey helped to erase their MRSA: I had done a fair amount of research when a friend of ours got MRSA, and then, unfortunately, I got it too., said user JoshuaOne9 on Amazon. Thankfully, I had already done the research so I knew exactly what to do. As soon as I saw the red bump (thinking the first day that it was a mosquito bite) I scratched it, but the second day I realized that it had to be something else. My husband immediately knew what it was since we had been dealing with our friend’s case of MRSA. I got my hands on this Manuka honey and put on the area of skin that was affected and then it is very important that you cover it with a bandaid. Within hours I felt relief and within a few days it was completely gone… While further research needs to be done, it’s safe to say that manuka honey shows plenty of promise in defeating one of the biggest health challenges faced by humanity in the 21st century, and this research should not be taken lightly.

Understanding Chickens 101

I talk about my chickens a lot. It seems that people the world over love chickens and love to talk about what it’s like to own them. Last year, I traveled quite a bit for work and had the opportunity to talk chicken with people in Kashmir, Zambia and, of course, the United States. Throughout all of these conversations, the question of whether you need a rooster to get eggs always comes up. It seems that there is an obvious and wide knowledge gap among people. Either you know things about chickens. Or you don’t. If you fall into the “don’t” category, however, fear not! This video is for you. I am by no means an expert. But having chickens for 4 years has definitely increased my knowledge. Take a look and impress your friends with all of your chicken knowledge. Welcome to Understanding Chickens 101. P.S. Although I think my theory is great, does anyone know more precisely why farm-raised chicken eggs have lower cholesterol?

Oregano (Origanum Vulgare)

Oregano Benefits Oregano More Info Notes / Side Effects Reviews Related Olive Leaf Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) Oregano has been used for centuries, originally by the Greeks, for curing a variety of ailments. The ailments that oregano was used to treat in ancient times include a vast range of conditions from convulsions to heart failure. In the 19th century, herbal doctors proscribed oregano as a general well being tonic as well as to promote menstruation. The name oregano originates from the two Greek words oros and ganos. Oregano is also known by its other common name, wild marjoram and marjoram. The scientific name for oregano is Origanum vulgare. Medical Uses for Oregano in Present Times Antifungal properties Today, studies have demonstrated the oregano does possess many beneficial properties. Oregano has been used for the treatment of chronic candidiasis through its antifungal properties. Ideally for this particular ailment, enteric coated capsules are recommended to ensure that the tablets pass through the stomach and disintegrate in the intestine. Digestive system Oregano supplements can also be used to treat indigestion, heartburn, and low stomach acidity. Oregano aids by reducing gas in the stomach as well as soothing a churning stomach. Antimicrobial properties The antimicrobial and antifungal properties of oregano are attributed to thymol and carvacol. Clinical studies have shown oregano to be extremely effective in inhibiting the growth of Candida albicans. Additional clinical studies demonstrate that oregano oil has anti-microbial properties against a large array of bacteria including Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella enterica and Staphylococcus aureus. What Provides Oregano with its Healing Properties? This perennial herb grows approximately 2 feet in height. It is able to be cultivated worldwide, but originated in the Mediterranean. For herbal treatments, the leaves of the oregano plants as well as the volatile oil are used for medical purposes. Dried oregano contains a multitude of constituents, including approximately 3% volatile essential oil. In addition to the volatile oil, the other constituents include: -carvacrol -thymol -borneol -rosmarinic acid -triterpenoids, which are ursolic and oleanolic acid -sterols -vitamin A -vitamin C How to Use Oregano for Medical Benefits Oregano can be administered in a variety of ways to obtain its beneficial effects. A common way to administer oregano is by steeping a tea. The tea can be made with fresh or dried oregano. Approximately 1 to 2 teaspoons, which is 5 to 10 grams, should be steeped in hot water for approximately 10 minutes. The recommended dosage of this tea is up to three times daily. Oregano oil can be applied topically for treatment of microbial infections, such as athlete's foot or other fungal based infections. The oil needs to be diluted by 50% or more prior to application and it can be applied twice daily. The oil should not be used internally as this has not been studied from a safety aspect. Oregano can also be taken as tablets, enteric coated tablets or capsules, which can be purchased from herbal supplement stores or online. Oregano capsules and tablets will disintegrate in the stomach, whilst enteric coated tablets will disintegrate in the intestines.

How to manage food safety complaints

How to manage food safety complaints One of the most feared possibilities for your F&B establishment is an outbreak of food poisoning associated with your food. Though it may be an unfortunate event, it is crunch time and you cannot afford to wallow in self-pity. Speed and responsiveness is key, especially in a digitally connected world where such bad publicity can spread like wildfire on social media platforms. You have to take these steps in ensuring that there is minimal reputational damage caused to your establishment. How to manage food safety complaints Step 1: Upon receiving a food poisoning complaint, immediately gather information about the customer (name, contact, email) and details about his/her meal transaction (with receipt, if possible). Step 2: Try to extract information from the customer in order to do a food recall – this will help you track the food over the past 24 hours. Remember to be sincere and concerned when asking. E.g. if the customer is experiencing great discomfort, volunteer to bring him/her to the hospital, if necessary. Step 3: At the same time, immediately instruct your kitchen supervisor to do a food recall, whether the food is cooked or raw or whether it has been served or not. Freeze all operations in order to prevent further escalation of food poisoning cases. How to manage food safety complaints Step 4: Using the information gathered, work backwards and trace it to the root of the problem – whether it’s from the serving, plating, cooking, preparation or storage. Step 5: Form a crisis management team and assign a spokesperson to handle any questions from the public or media. Preferably, this person should be someone senior, who knows the business and has good communication skills. How to manage food safety complaints Step 6: Be transparent at all times, providing your team and the media with constant updates and prevent them from speculating and generating more unnecessary bad publicity. Work closely with any relevant health authority or food safety auditor to find the cause of the problem. Step 7: Once the problem has been identified, immediately apologise to the general public and promise them that corrective steps and preventive measures are in place to ensure that such hiccups will never happen again. Continue communicating with the health authorities and seek their advice on how to improve your food safety process. Step 8: Moving forward, consider engaging 3rd party food auditors to audit your establishment to ensure that there are no possible red flags and also to inform the general public that your establishment is serious in upholding the highest standards of food safety. Of course, the best-case scenario is for no such case to happen at all. In order to do that, everybody has a part to play in ensuring that food is not contaminated during any point of the food handling process.

the Tree

My Olive Tree Page Liked · Yesterday · My Olive Tree was birthed out of a heart to support the land and the people of Israel. It was in 2004 when I first sat down with the then, Finance Minister, now Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and we discussed a huge humanitarian aid initiative that I was involved in—a project that was bringing in over 20 million dollars worth of aid into the nation of Israel. It was an enormous undertaking, and the Finance Minister was grateful and polite when he opened up to express his heartfelt concern for the people of Israel. You see, he did not want Israel to become a country dependent on charity, but rather, a country that prospers through economic independence. It was a few years later while attending a meeting in Israel, when the “concept” of My Olive Tree was presented to us... My first reaction was, “No way!” But the Israelis in the meeting eagerly said, “You can plant a million olive trees… a plan to help make Israel economically independent… You can do this!” My answer again was, “No… this is not for me.” And then I felt the prompting of the Lord to step outside of our meeting place. He then began to show me a vision of a blue and green globe, and said, “Do you see all of those little green spots? I planted all of those without your help.” That was when My Olive Tree began… and it has since grown and is still growing! Today, through the help of thousands of people around the world, we have planted over 20,000 partner sponsored olive trees throughout Israel—a far cry from the HUGE vision of one million—but we are diligently moving forward to reach that goal! When My Olive Tree first began sponsoring olive trees, we planted in the Galilee area. It was exciting to see the vision unfold and for our partners to LITERALLY take root in the Holy Land! And then a few years later the opportunity became available to expand our efforts and begin planting in the Negev Desert. Again, thousands of sponsors rallied together to leave a living legacy and a living memorial in Israel. Like David Ben-Gurion you all jumped on the chance to be pioneers! The first Prime Minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion was focused on breathing life into the Negev Desert… and you as our sponsors have shown that you share his vision and have hence breathed new life into the goal of sponsoring one million trees. You heard Isaiah’s cry and Ben-Gurion’s cry, and you answered back with resounding support! It is incredible to know that our supporters, that’s YOU, are helping fulfill the goals of the projects... …by bringing the wastelands to life—expanding the greenbelt into the desert to create livable habitats for families to return to the land of their Father. Your gift is literally taking root in the land of #Israel, saying, “You belong. Through faith, I belong. We belong!” You see, more than anything, your sponsorships give hope and speak of friendship and solidarity. Your trees say to Israel and her people: I see you right now and I believe in your history—your past, your present, your future, and your right to exist. Your tree is a statement that you realize Israel’s future—acknowledging her potential—her promise. Your tree is not just a gift for today. Your tree is a living legacy—a living memorial. A few years ago My Olive Tree was asked to plant several very large mature olive trees (30-40 years old) in a special place in #Jerusalem called the King’s Valley. This area in the valley, which is part of the larger Kidron Valley, located east of King David’s palace, is believed to have once been a garden for the ancient King’s of Israel. And perhaps most importantly, it is also very symbolic that this area is on the hills below the Mount of Olives where the Messiah expected to return.

Microorganisms require oxygen to grow.

FATTOM – time to fight your enemies! There are a few factors that contribute to the growth of microorganisms on food. If we are able to counter and prevent these factors, we are able to fight our enemies. Food Food Many microorganisms grow on food rich in protein (poultry, fish, dairy, eggs) and carbohydrates (cooked rice, pasta). These foods have a high chance of contamination and may give rise to foodborne illnesses. Action: Pay more attention to these categories of food. Acid Acid Low acid food (poultry, fish, dairy, eggs) are considered potentially hazardous. Action: Cook food at high temperature. Check expiry dates. Look out for dents, bulges, leaks or rust in low-acid canned food (luncheon meat, baked beans). Temperature Temperature Microorganisms grow fastest in the Temperature Danger Zone (TDZ) of 5°C to 56.7°C. This TDZ range includes room temperature as well. Action: Do not leave food at room temperature for too long (e.g. rice and starchy foods). Store foods at the correct temperature. Time Time After 4 hours, the microorganisms on the food may produce toxins that make the food unsafe for consumption. Action: Food should not be kept at the TDZ for more than 4 hours. Oxygen Oxygen Microorganisms require oxygen to grow. Action: Cover food at all times. Moisture Moisture Microorganisms grow faster in food with high water content (fresh poultry, meat, fish and raw eggs). Action: Ensure these foods are stored at the proper temperatures with reduced moisture. By understanding your enemies and what you can do to prevent them, you’ll keep your food and diners safe.

oregano plant

History This plant is native to Europe, the Mediterranean and southern Asia. It has tiny hair like glands on its surface called trichomes which reflect the intense rays of the sun. This is a trait common to most plants in the Lamiaceae or Mint family. The trichomes synthesize and accumulate essential oils and phenols which protect the plant from oxidation while allowing it to survive in dry and hot conditions with direct exposure to intense sunlight. Throughout history, Oregano was used primarily as a culinary spice and medicinal plant for coughs, stomach distress, and topically for wounds and inflammation but also as an ornamental in gardens. It was used to preserve meat in ancient times before refrigeration was available, as were other spices which contain high amounts of volatile oils like Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) and Rosemary (Rosmarinus off.). Function This plant has many volatile oils. The main volatile oils that have been researched in this plant are Carvacrol, Thymol, Eugenol and 1, 8 cineole. The plant also contains appreciable amounts of Rosmarinic acid and other antioxidants. Oregano is high in antioxidant activity, due to a high content of phenolic acids and flavonoids. Oregano contains key constituents that function synergistically to support the body's natural resistance to microscopic invaders in the environment. Specifically, the volatile oils found in oregano, contain potent phenols, including carvacrol and thymol, which help to support a healthy microbial environment in the intestines and throughout the body. Oregano leaf also acts as an antioxidant and contains the flavonoid rosmarinic acid that appears to normalize the chemical cyclooxygenase 2 (Cox-2). Cox-2 is associated with inflammation in tissues. In vitro studies of Oregano oil, along with other essential oils such as Tea Tree oil, appears to have a particular affinity for Candida species as well as a variety of gram postitive and gram negative bacteria. The majority of research to date on Oregano has been done in vitro or in animals, therefore there is insufficient research to scientifically validate all of these actions in humans.* Oregano has been shown to possess significant antioxidant capacity in various in vitro models and has thus been suggested to be potentially beneficial to human health, but again studies in humans are lacking Uses of Oregano * Digestive Function * Gastrointestinal Flora * Immune System * Intestinal Health * Respiratory Function

Part 2 (two).................Pineapple: Health Benefits, Recipes, Health Risks Note: Cold pressed juicing Slow-squeezing juice extractor fresher and richer juice!

Part 2 (two).................Pineapple: Health Benefits, Recipes, Health Risks Written by Megan Ware RDN LD Knowledge center Last updated: Thu 10 September 2015 email 4 2361SHARE 3 (Continued from page 1...) Note: Cold pressed juicing Slow-squeezing juice extractor fresher and richer juice! Nutritional breakdown of pineapples One cup of fresh pineapple chunks contain approximately 82 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 grams of cholesterol, 2 milligrams of sodium, 22 grams of total carbohydrate (including 16 grams of sugar and 2.3 grams of fiber) and 1 gram of protein. One cup of fresh pineapple chunks provides 131% of your vitamin C needs for the day, 2% of vitamin A needs, 2% of calcium and 2% of iron. Pineapple Fresh pineapple is the only known source of an enzyme called bromelain. Pineapple is also a source of important vitamins and minerals such as thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, manganese and potassium and antioxidants and polyphenols, such as beta-carotene. Fresh pineapple is the only known source of an enzyme called bromelain, which has been used in studies to determine it's effectiveness in alleviating joint pain, arthritis, reduce inflammation, inhibit tumor growth and shorten recovery time following plastic surgery. How to incorporate more pineapples into your dietPineapple juice Make your own pineapple juice! Nothing tastes better than fresh fruit juice in the morning. Select a pineapple with a firm, plump body without bruising or soft spots and green leaves at the crown. A green outer shell does not mean the pineapple is not ripe and contrary to popular belief, neither does the ease in which the leaves pull from the crown. Pineapples should be picked at their peak ripeness since unlike other fruits, they will not continue to ripen once picked. Whole or cut pineapple should be stored in the refrigerator. If consuming canned or packaged pineapple, make sure to pick up the varieties canned only in pineapple juice, not heavy syrup. Keep a bowl of freshly chopped fruit front and center in a clear container in the refrigerator. Seeing the fruit readily available will likely cause you to choose them as a snack more often rather than raiding the cupboards for a less healthy processed snack Add pineapple to your favorite kebabs. Try shrimp, chicken or steak kabobs with red onions, pineapple and cherry tomatoes Make a fruit salad with strawberries, pineapple, mandarin oranges and grapes. Top with unsweetened shredded coconut for a fresh twist Add some pineapple slices to your salad at lunch or dinner. Compliment the pineapple with walnuts or pecans, a crumbled cheese and light balsamic or citrus vinaigrette dressing Make your own juice! Nothing tastes better than fresh fruit juice in the morning. When you make your own, you can be sure there are no added preservatives or sweeteners Make a fresh salsa with pineapple, mango, jalapeno, red peppers and chipotle pepper and use as a topper for your favorite fish tacos. If you are unsure how to cut a pineapple properly, there's a good article about that here Potential health risks of consuming pineapples Beta-blockers, a type of medication most commonly prescribed for heart disease, can cause potassium levels to increase in the blood. High potassium foods should be consumed in moderation when taking beta-blockers. Consuming too much potassium can be harmful for those whose kidneys are not fully functional. If your kidneys are unable to remove excess potassium from the blood, it could be fatal. Those with gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) may experience an increase in symptoms such as heartburn and regurgitation when consuming highly acidic foods, however individual reactions vary. It is the total diet or overall eating pattern that is most important in disease prevention and achieving good health. It is better to eat a diet with variety than to concentrate on individual foods as the key to good health.

Pineapple: Health Benefits, Recipes, Health Risks

Nutrition / Diet Pineapple: Health Benefits, Recipes, Health Risks Written by Megan Ware RDN LD Knowledge center Last updated: Thu 10 September 2015 email 4 2361SHARE 3 Contrary to popular belief, pineapples, which came to be known as such because of their resemblance to pinecones, did not originate in Hawaii. Christopher Columbus brought pineapples back to Europe after one of his expeditions to South America, where they are believed to have originated from. Pineapples became known as an extravagant and exotic fruit, served only at the most lavish of banquets. Today, pineapple can be commonly found in any grocery store and in many homes all-around the world. In Central and South America, pineapple is not only valued for its sweet taste - it has been used for centuries to treat digestion problems and inflammation. Possible health benefits of pineapples Consuming fruits and vegetables of all kinds has long been associated with a reduced risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions. Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like pineapples decreases the risk of obesity and overall mortality, diabetes, heart disease and promotes a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, overall lower weight. Pineapple's possible health benefits include: Age-related macular degeneration: A higher intake of all fruits (3 or more servings per day) has also been shown to decrease risk of and progression of age-related macular degeneration. Asthma prevention: The risks for developing asthma are lower in people who consume a high amount of certain nutrients. One of these nutrients is beta-carotene, found in plant foods like pineapple, mangoes, papaya, apricots, broccoli, cantaloupe, pumpkin and carrots. Blood pressure: Increasing potassium intake by consuming high potassium fruits and vegetables can help with lowering blood pressure. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, fewer than 2% of US adults meet the daily 4700 mg recommendation.1 Also of note, a high potassium intake is associated with a 20% decreased risk of dying from all causes.1 Cancer: As an excellent source of the strong antioxidant vitamin C, pineapples can help combat the formation of free radicals known to cause cancer. Diets rich in beta-carotene may also play a protective role against prostate cancer, according to a study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health's Department of Nutrition7 and has been shown to have an inverse association with the development of colon cancer in the Japanese population.8 High fiber intakes from all fruits and vegetables are associated with a lowered risk of colorectal cancer. According to the American Cancer Society: "there are studies suggesting that bromelain [found in pineapple] and other such enzymes may be used with standard cancer treatment to help reduce some side effects (such as mouth and throat inflammation due to radiation treatments)." Diabetes: Studies have shown that type 1 diabetics who consume high-fiber diets have lower blood glucose levels and type 2 diabetics may have improved blood sugar, lipids and insulin levels. One medium pineapple provides about 13 grams of fiber. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends 21-25 g/day for women and 30-38 g/day for men. Digestion: Pineapples, because of their fiber and water content, help to prevent constipation and promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract. Fertility: Antioxidant-rich diets have been shown to improve fertility. Because free radicals also can damage the reproductive system, foods with high antioxidant activity like pineapples that battle free radicals are recommended for those trying to conceive. The antioxidants in pineapple such as vitamins C, beta-carotene and the vitamins and minerals and copper, zinc and folate have properties that affect both male and female fertility.5 Healing and Inflammation: Some studies have shown that bromelain, the enzyme found in pineapples, can reduce swelling, bruising, healing time, and pain associated with injury and surgical intervention. Bromelain is currently being used to treat and reduce inflammation from tendinitis, sprains, strains, and other minor muscle injuries as well as swelling related to ear, nose and throat surgeries or trauma.9 Heart health: The fiber, potassium and vitamin C content in pineapple all support heart health. In one study, those who consumed 4069 mg of potassium per day had a 49% lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease compared with those who consumed less potassium (about 1000 mg per day).1 High potassium intakes are also associated with a reduced risk of stroke, protection against loss of muscle mass, preservation of bone mineral density and reduction in the formation of kidney stones.1 Skin: The antioxidant vitamin C, when eaten in its natural form (as in a pineapple) or applied topically, can help to fight skin damage caused by the sun and pollution, reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin texture. Vitamin C also plays a vital role in the formation of collagen, the support system of your skin.

Are You Eating the Most Pesticide-Contaminated Produce?

Are You Eating the Most Pesticide-Contaminated Produce? 14+1 20Tweet 172Like 108Pin 136Share Affiliate Disclosure 2016 Dirty Dozen pesticide foods - Dr. Axe Strawberries harness some seriously incredible health powers. The low-sugar, high-fiber, antioxidant-packed berries help reduce arthritis pain, lower your risk of cancer and even provide natural protection from sunburn. Unfortunately, chemical farming threatens all of that powerful strawberry nutrition. A 2016 Dirty Dozen report from Environmental Working Group (EWG) highlights the 12 produce picks most often contaminated with harmful pesticide levels. This is the first year that strawberries topped the Dirty Dozen list. (Nonorganic apples previously topped the list.) But when you realize that nonorganic farmers use a type of poisonous gas for pre-planting fumigation — and that one strawberry sample is capable of testing positive for 17 different pesticides — it’s clear organic strawberries should be on your shopping list. That’s especially true since Americans eat an average of 8 pounds of fresh strawberries annually. (1) 2016 Dirty Dozen List EWG uses the latest pesticide residue data from government testing to create a list of fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide loads. It’s important to note that even after being washed or sometimes even peeled, residues levels remained. That’s because many pesticides are systemic, meaning they are taken up inside of the plant, becoming part of the actual fruit or veggie. The most pesticide-contaminated produce items are: Strawberries Apples Nectarines Peaches Celery Grapes Cherries Spinach Tomatoes Sweet bell peppers Cherry tomatoes Cucumbers EWG also found that nonorganic hot peppers, kale and collard greens contain trace levels of particularly toxic pesticides. Opt for organic versions of these veggies, too.
