Tangerine Essential Oil – Aromatherapy

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 30, 2010 in Aromatherapy with No Comments

From the citrus family comes the most royal and noble of them all, the tangerine. It belongs to the diverse orange family and like any citrus, the essential oil is derived from its peelings where the mild aroma and flavour of the tangerine comes from. Originally from China, where it was called Mandarin, it was named after the high officials and dignitaries of the old imperial China. That speaks well for the value the Chinese hold for the tangerine. From China, it found its way to Europe and eventually in North America. Today the United States is the world biggest producer of this fine citrus that has given us the one of the finest essential oil ever produced. In fact it blends well with other essential oil and can be found in most cosmetics and perfumery.

Tangerine essential oil is one of the perfect oil to be used in aromatherapy. It was said to be the oil of happiness in China because it gives a soothing effect both on the physical body as well as the mental and spiritual. Its calming effects on the body are well known because its effects are not only on the outside but on the inside as well. Other organs of the body are calmed by this body relieving us of stress and other stress related body problems like diarrhea or dyspepsia. Tangerine essential oil relaxes the muscles as well as the other organs of the body thus relieving us completely any problem associated with spasm.

It is very popular as in aromatherapy for the many benefits associated with it. Tangerine essential oil is also known to be the cleaning oil. It is said to combat many bacteria that attacks the body. Its anti septic properties where used even in the old days, even for babies. In fact bacteria causing sepsis are easily eliminated with it that can cause many skin problems and diseases. It is also perfect for treating acne and pimples due to its antiseptic properties. The fresh fruity yet mild scent refreshes the whole body giving one the feeling of complete cleanliness.

Tangerine essential oil is well known to improve the mood of a person. Its scent is appreciated by both the young and the young at heart. Even popular cologne brands used it as the primary scent of their colognes as babies are said to be more happy and calm with it.

Aromatherapy Simplified

“With immediacy and intensity, smell activates memory, allowing our minds to travel freely in time.” — Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume

Aromatherapy is an alchemic practice that has been used for centuries in many ancient cultures for a myriad of purposes. The aromas of each oil have a different and beneficial effect on the olfactory and limbic systems and can be used to treat both physical and emotional disorders. Below you will find some easy applications and recipes that you can incorporate into your daily lives to great benefit, particularly during this holiday season…which can be stressful as well as fun!

  • Basic Essential Oil Kit
  • Chamomile
  • Clary Sage
  • Eucalyptus
  • Geranium
  • Lavender
  • Lemongrass
  • Orange
  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary
  • Sandalwood
  • Tea Tree
  • Ylang-ylang

Lavender oil and tea tree oil are among the few essential oils that can be applied to the skin in their pure form – most are too strong and must be used with a base oil as a carrier. There are many base oils to choose from–jojoba, sesame, wheat germ, evening primrose and grapeseed, to name a few. Most health food stores sell these oils by the half or full gallon, as well as in smaller quantities.


Choose no more than three essential oils for each blend. Where more than three oils are listed in a category below, choose the three that most appeal to you.

  • A helpful measurement guide is 20 drops of oil = 1 milliliter (ml), and 9 ml = 2 teaspoons.
  • In general, use between 20 and 60 total drops of essential oil in 100 ml of base oil.
  • When blending an oil formula to be applied to the face or body, mix 3-4 drops of each essential oil into a base oil of your choice (9 to 12 total drops for a blend with three essential oils).
  • When using a diffuser, drop no more than three oils at a time directly into water.
  • For a bath, drop 6-10 drops total of your selected oils directly into bath water.

For specific issues with the skin, use these oils:

Blemishes/breakouts – tea tree, lavender, camphor (note: tea tree oil can be used alone, without a base oil)
Burns – ice the area for 10 minutes first, then follow with lavender oil applied directly to the skin. Finally, use a dry cold compress soaked with five drops of lavender oil.
Mature/dry skin: lavender, rose (otto), carrot, geranium, frankincense; use evening primrose oil as a base
Sensitive/irritated skin: lavender, carrot, chamomile; use evening primrose oil as a base

Body care:

Athlete’s foot – tea tree oil, applied directly to the affected area; lemon oil can also help
Tired feet – rosemary, peppermint, cypress, in a bowl of warm water as a foot soak or in the bath
Bronchitis – lavender, eucalyptus, pine, rosemary, blended with a base oil and used as a chest rub
Digestive disorders – peppermint, ginger; in this case, use peppermint leaves or ginger root infused as a tea
Depression – rose, orange, rosemary, ylang-ylang and sage; you can use these oils in a body blend, in the bath, or in a diffuser
General fatigue – all the citrus oils, particularly lemongrass and orange, and peppermint, used in a diffuser or the bath
Jet lag – ylang-ylang and lavender, used in the bath
Hangover – geranium and lavender as a cool compress on the forehead
Menopause/PMS – clary sage, geranium, sage, pine; use in the bath
Bruising – geranium, lavender; in a base oil and applied to the skin


Insomnia – lavender, rose, lemon, in the bath or a diffuser. Lavender dropped sparingly on your pillow is also very effective.
Concentration – ginger, black pepper, rosemary, in a diffuser, the bath or in a base oil blend
Loss of memory – rose, geranium, peppermint and lavender, in a diffuser, the bath or in a base oil blend
Stress – sandalwood, geranium, clary sage, orange, lemongrass and ylang-ylang, in a diffuser, the bath or in a base oil blend
Aphrodisiac – ylang-ylang, rose, clary sage, lavender, jasmine, patchouli, in a diffuser, the bath or in a base oil blend

“There’s flowers for you; hot lavender, mints, savory, marjoram;
The marigold, that goes to bed wi’ the sun,
And with him rises weeping; these are the flowers
Of middle Summer, and I think they are given
To men of middle age.”

— William Shakespeare, “The Winter’s Tale”

Homeopathic ADHD Remedies

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 28, 2010 in Health with No Comments

There is no shortage of ideas about how to treat ADHD symptoms including those involving homeopathic ADHD remedies. Examples would be the wildly popular and possibly over prescribed prescription stimulants such as Ritalin; oral antihypertensives; antidepressants; mind rebalancing therapies; mind re-patterning therapies; behavioral therapies such as CBT; ADHD counseling, ADHD coaching and training; diet modification solutions; vitamins; and of course homeopathic ADHD remedies. And what might surprise you is that there are many others which have both their staunch supporters and ardent critics.

Why are there so many choices?

Perhaps the simplest explanation is that there are many different variations of ADHD with the three primary categories being inattentive, hyperactive/impulsive, and the combined type which includes variations that can’t quite be neatly placed in any predetermined category.

There are also a laundry list of secondary symptoms such as anticipation of failure, loss of hope, sleep problems, low self esteem, frustration, lack or loss of motivation, boredom, and the tendency to be a worry wart.

Another possibility is an interesting fact I ran across in a recently published book titled “Everything Health Guide to Adult ADD/ADHD” and that was over 70 percent of adults with ADHD also have a co-existing condition of some sort. Examples would depression, bi-polar disorder, or chronic anxiety. The book failed to provide any statistics on children, or when their list of co-existing conditions are most likely to begin to develop. But one could speculate that this probably happens sometime in the mid-school age years as the challenges of unidentified, or unmanaged, ADHD start to overwhelm them both mentally and physically.

Why are so may turning their back on convention stimulant medications?

As you probably know most cases of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are treated with stimulant medications such as Ritalin and Adderall. While these types of medications can at times be helpful, when monitored carefully, there is no shortage of both long and short term side effects.

There is also some evidence to suggest they may be toxic for children age 6 and younger. And then there is the 30 percent chance stimulant medications will not improve the primary symptoms of inattention/distractibility, impulsivity, and hyperactivity/restlessness.

Additionally, there is no evidence to suggest that the current list of prescription medications does anything but mask the symptoms. Therefore making long term use a definite possibility, and opening the door for addiction.

Homeopathic ADHD remedies a safer alternative?

Homeopathic ADHD remedies seem to be an area of treatment which has few, if any, side effect risks and according to a couple of small to medium sized studies seems to produce long term benefits over 50 percent of the time. These same studies showed the failure rate about equal to that of convention stimulant treatment options.

In all fairness it should be pointed out that homeopathic ADHD remedies are only as good as their composition of ingredients and the skill used in formulation.

In conclusion, all treatments for attention deficit disorder have their pros and cons with none being 100 percent effective. Additionally, numerous large studies have shown a well thought out combination of multiple treatments is more effective than any singular solution. One example would be the combination of homeopathic ADHD remedies with cognitive behavior therapy(CBT).

How To Find An Acupuncture Practitioner

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 25, 2010 in Acupuncture with No Comments

Ever since acupuncture has become a more widely known therapy, locating an acupuncture practitioner has become an easier task. In the same manner you look for a dentist or primary care doctor, you can use the internet or a local phone directory, or even ask your family and friends for possible recommendations. Aside from that, there are also a few acupuncture organization websites online that allow you to search for recommended acupuncturists near your location. If you prefer to speak to your primary physician, he or she may be able to direct you to a practitioner as acupuncture is gaining more respect in the western medical field. You may be surprised to learn that there is an acupuncture practitioner located in your primary physician’s office.

After you find a few good choice practitioners, you will want to ensure that you check up on their credentials. Much like you would want to do with your primary health providers; this assures you that the practitioner or provider in questions has the proper training from an accredited school or institution. Be aware that not every state has acupuncture training standards or certification requirements, but if you live in a state that does, ask the acupuncturist about their acupuncture training, certifications and background. Often, practitioners will place these details on their clinic websites, too.

Is Certification Important?

Certification does not necessarily make one an instant expert, but it does give you peace of mind when approaching a new healing modality. It is also important not to rely on your practitioner to diagnose diseases unless they also have conventional medical accreditation or training. A good practitioner will disclose this at the very beginning, usually recommending a visit to your primary doctor at the same time. While Chinese medicine trains a practitioner to address the symptoms of an ailment, it is not specifically concerned with naming specific diseases. Always see your primary doctor first if you feel you have strong symptoms or if you need a more detailed and accurate diagnosis. Again, your physician may end up referring you to an acupuncturist, but you want to make sure you address serious issues before they escalate.

Once you are comfortable with the training and background of your acupuncture practitioners, all you have to do is choose which one you want to see. This is still similar to searching for a dentist or primary physician. You can ask a friend for recommendations or search for reviews online, or just schedule your first visit to see if you feel comfortable in their clinic space. Normally, the first visit will include a consultation and an initial diagnosis where the practitioner will ask specific questions about your condition and discuss treatment options. At this point, you always have the option of continuing with the suggested treatments or seeing another practitioner if you are not comfortable with the first one.

To Treat Or Not To Treat?

The acupuncturist will discuss the treatment costs along with your diagnosis. He or she will also talk about the length of treatment or the number of acupuncture sessions that you will need. This should all occur before any actual treatments begin. You will find that some illnesses and symptoms only require a few sessions, while others may need several weeks or months. An important tip to consider is that a conventionally trained physician who is also trained in Chinese medicine and acupuncture may charge more for their services.

Hoodia, A Natural Appetite Suppressant

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 24, 2010 in Health with No Comments

Hoodia for Weight Loss – Myth or Miracle?

As obesity levels continue to rise, the hunt for the perfect weight loss supplement is at an all time high. Infomercials, banner ads, email blasts, you name it – advertisers spend millions trying to talk us into buying the newest “miracle diet pill”. A recent craze that has even high profile celebrities looking is Hoodia, claiming to be a natural appetite suppressant. So is it a hoax or does it really work?

What is it?

Hoodia Gordonii, known in short as Hoodia, is a South African cactus-like plant. The history goes back to South African bushman (specifically The San), who chewed on the plant before long hunting trips to sustain their appetite on little food. Many variations have been found in several other countries however, these plants do not contain the same molecules therefore are completely different and have different effects.

How it Works

Numerous trials have been done to test if and how this plant suppresses the appetite and impressive results have been concluded. The active molecule isolated from Hoodia, that is known to suppress the appetite, is P57. This molecule acts similarly to glucose but is 10,000 times more active. The chemical constituents work within the satiety center, fooling the brain into believing enough food has been consumed. The trials were so impressive that a major pharmaceutical company spent millions trying to separate P57 to make it into a prescription weight loss supplement. Research is still being done and as of yet, no drug has been successfully manufactured from this major company.

Is All Hoodia Equal?

Unfortunately, due to the high spike in interest over the botanical, Hoodia has been put on a list of potentially endangered natural plants and therefore is extremely hard to import. However, Hoodia appears to be widely available, especially over the internet. Sound suspicious? It should – thousands of products claim they contain “100% Hoodia”. Although misleading, these claims might very well be true. Over twenty species of Hoodia exist being grown in Mexico and even the United States. However, only Hoodia Gordonii grown in the Kalahari Desert contains the powerful appetite suppressing P57, all others are basically useless.

What to Look for When Buying Hoodia

To determine the real, appetite suppressing, 100% Hoodia, look for a CITES certification. CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) is an international agreement between governments (watchdog being the United Nations), to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. Hoodia Gordonii was added to this list in 2004 due to a high demand and very limited supply. If you see Hoodia without this certification, it is either illegally grown/imported or, more likely, is not the authentic botanical.

How to Use Hoodia for Weight Loss

Hoodia is not a miracle pill that can be taken to melt pounds away. Instead, this powerful botanical should be used in partnership with a plan to achieve a healthy lifestyle. One of the most effective ways to take Hoodia is in liquid form such as blended with Rooibos tea. South African Rooibos with Hoodia is a calorie free, naturally sweet tasting beverage and can help reduce the amount of food needed to feel satisfied and full of energy. In addition, drinking this tea will help you feel fuller due to the liquid content and count towards your recommended daily intake of water.

Overall, Hoodia Gordonii, has been tested and confirmed to be a legitimate appetite suppressor. However, it is also extremely hard to find real, 100% Hoodia so take caution when purchasing. Paired with a healthy diet and exercise routine, Hoodia can aid weight loss and help those wanting to shed the pounds and keep them off.

Acupuncture and Weight Loss

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 23, 2010 in Acupuncture with No Comments

One of the most frequent questions I receive as an acupuncturist (after, “Does it really work?”) is, “Can acupuncture help me lose weight?” My first response is “No, but…” No, because if someone tells you they have the magic dart to help you lose weight, quit smoking, stop being angry with your parents, stop chewing your nails, etc., red flags should go up and you should automatically go the other direction. The truth is that there is no magic bullet to any of the above or the other myriad of things we wish we could “fix” with a quick and easy solution.

But acupuncture by itself does help to increase the flow of blood and energy throughout the body. This leads to better digestion, elimination, circulation, an increase in energy and generally more solid and consistent sleep patterns. If all of those things are flowing freely and without obstruction, it tends to follow that a person can lose weight safely, effectively and naturally simply by putting their physical body in order.

Acupuncture alone won’t “make” you lose weight. Only you can make the lifestyle choices necessary to achieve profound, lasting weight loss results. When I’m working with clients with a goal of losing weight, the first things we look at are the reasons they may have originally gained weight. Has their lifestyle become more sedentary? Why? Do they no longer enjoy doing the things they did in the past? Have they taken on the role of caretaker and no longer have time to devote to their own well being? Are they eating because they are sad? Angry? Grieving? Bored? Have they gained weight because they are drinking more than they have in the past? Is it really excess weight or simply a distorted view of themselves?

Each person is unique and the reason they have excess weight is individual to each person. There is no magic bullet because there is no single cause and effect to weight gain. I work a good deal on nutritional and lifestyle counseling with my clients, but equally important, I simply work with my clients. I will never underestimate the value of eating well and moving the body every day, but it is just as important to realize why a person doesn’t like how they look, how they got to this point, and finally – and this is the most important thing – realizing that fat or skinny, tall or short, curly hair or straight, it is all about loving ourselves.

I’m a huge advocate of being of a “healthy” weight (and remember, “healthy” by no means equals looking like the girls in the magazines). But who would you rather be around: a skinny person who is miserable because they restrict themselves in every aspect of their lives, or a person with a few extra pounds who is kind, loving and happy because they enjoy life? I have my answer. Thank goodness we weren’t all built with bodies like Twiggy.

What Exactly Are Bath Bombs?

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 22, 2010 in Aromatherapy with No Comments

We all have heard about them but unfortunately not many of us know what exactly these bath bombs are. Even those who use them regularly are unaware of what they are composed of. In the recent years, numerous such products have gained enormous popularity especially among females. Most of the females, who love soaking their bodies in the tubs, are the ones who prefer using these types of products to make the experience even more revitalizing.

So, if you are someone who wants to know what these balls are made up of then read on…

What are they made of?

Some bath bombs are soft while most of them are hard to touch. They are made up of materials which dissolve and make bubbles once they are in a tub filled with water. Basically, as soon as they come in contact with water they start dissolving and crackling. Not only this, the scented ones release the fragrance while they are dissolving. Some of them also have essential oils, cleansing ingredients and minerals in them which are quite beneficial to the human skin.

Citric acid, baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), magnesium sulfate, and com starch are also present in them. If any of these ingredients is missing, the product will lose its effects until it is replaced with an equivalent ingredient. Therefore, all of these ingredients when combined together are capable of producing the fizzing effects for which these products are popular. However, at times a bath bomb can also contain artificial colors, fried flowers and glitter to add more effects to the bathing experience.

Bath bombs which have minerals, cleansing agents and essential oils are helpful to the person in a therapeutic way. In fact, in the recent past many people have established the belief that such products are great to relax their bodies and minds. Other products like fizzers and bath salts are also popular for the same purpose. Today, there are a number of flavors available. For instance, the mint flavor is known for energizing the body in summer whereas the rose flavor and other similar sweet ones are meant for relaxation. The almond oil ones are good for moisturizing the skin whereas the ones with avocado oil have quite a lot of healing properties associated to them.

Although medical science does not approve the fact that such products have any therapeutic advantages, many still use them and believe in it. The scent, the bubbles and the fizzy effect are enough to relax the body. Once your body is relaxed, your mind will be relaxed too. Therefore, using bath salts and bath bombs is a great way revitalizing your body in those stressful days.

Alternative Ways for Asthma Relief

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 21, 2010 in Other with No Comments

Asthma can be a chronic concern to most people from childhood till the adult stage. Asthma is a breathing disorder that is caused by the inflammation and narrowing of your lung’s airways. Some of its symptoms include cough, rapid breathing, wheezing and breathlessness. And these symptoms can worsen with poor breathing techniques. When air can’t get in then the patient will also have a hard time breathing out thus causing the patient to have an asthma attack.

If you have asthma, you can help yourself by manipulating your breathing patterns with relaxation and deep breathing exercises. This will help you control your respiratory muscles and in turn will contribute to the improvement of your condition. When trying to learn breathing exercises it is important to consult a respiratory therapist first because not all breathing exercises can be safe for you.

Aside from breathing exercises, you can also seek help from the healing properties of nature by employing alternative treatments with the use of Garlic and honey. Garlic is considered to be an effective ingredient when it comes to natural asthma remedies. You can try it out by boiling garlic in milk. This is said to be very helpful when you are experiencing asthma symptoms and is recommended especially for those who are in the early stages of asthma. All you have to do is boil ten cloves of garlic in half cup of milk and drink it before you go to sleep.

Another possible remedy for you will be with the help of honey. You can get a glass of very hot water and add a teaspoon of honey in it. Drink this mix very slowly before you go to bed. Another concoction involving honey is to use one teaspoon of honey and mix it with a teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Then consume after mixing the two ingredients thoroughly.

Another home remedy you can use to relieve yourself from asthma is by the use of grapes. These grapes must have seeds and must be fresh. You need to soak the fresh grapes in water and place them in a cool place like the fridge. Then you can chew on the grapes before going to bed. This is said to help prevent any symptoms of asthma to take place.

With all this natural alternatives you can now reduce the risks of you having an asthma attack throughout the day or week. Do not forget to consult your doctor regularly.

Exercise and Fitness Tips

Posted by Alternative Medicine on December 18, 2010 in Health with No Comments

Golf exercise and fitness are key components in todays game of golf. It is imperative that the golfer is fit and supple prior to a round of golf. How many times do golfers turn up for a round and then head straight out onto the course without performing any sort of exercise or warm up routine. This is a big mistake, not only will this impact your game of golf, but it could possibly cause irreparable damage to your body.

First, a Bowflex exercise and fitness machine helps improve muscle flexibility. It uses power rods attached to pulleys to give you your workout, instead of the weights you usually find on a standard exercise machine. The seat on the Bowflex exercise and fitness machine can also be adjusted to change the angle and direction of your body, giving you a full-body workout and working all of your muscle groups. This helps improve the strength and co-ordination of muscles throughout your body.

The era of golf exercise and fitness, as well as golf-specific conditioning programs was probably ushered in by golfers like the legendary Tiger Woods. Never before had the world witnessed such physically fit professional golfers who were involved in regular exercise programs and who played the game while in tip-top physical condition.

Walking for exercise can either be a refreshing walk outside (with the dog, with a friend, etc.), or you may simply choose to walk places instead of using other forms of transportation. For instance, if you work a few blocks away, you may choose to walk to work every day instead of driving. You can also make other decisions such as choosing to take the stairs instead of the elevator.

The plus about this is that a group setting can be a motivating factor as can the instructor. This is also good for beginners who might not know the difference between certain exercises and how to perform them properly.

There are literally hundreds of ways to research physical fitness information and facts to assist in the creation of your own an active lifestyle regimen, that there is no excuse not to engage in some form physical training. Whether you choose to purchase home gym equipment, join a gym, participate in yoga or jazzercise classes or join a sports’ team, any will offer healthy exercise and fitness benefits.

Whoever said that the importance of exercise and fitness regresses as we age must not really know its valuable effects. In fact, exercise is the top secret to aging healthy. As one grows older, the most likely it is needed for him or her to get moving. Exercise and fitness do not only keep your body healthy, it also helps keep your mind, mood and memory in top form. If you intend to keep yourself as far away from ailments and disabilities as possible, exercise even more.

The human body is a very complex machine and in vain will you work the muscles unless you take care of what you eat, how you eat, what you think and how you function in general lines. People have grown used to abusing their bodies in so many ways without even knowing it. Junk food, smoking, alcohol, drugs, lack of sleep, and still, we keep functioning. Therefore, the approach to exercise and fitness should start with the close analysis of personal lifestyle, so that you may understand how to maximize your physical activity level, in order to achieve goals.

It is important to understand that lifetime fitness is not a matter of a passing fad. Lifetime fitness demands one hundred per cent commitment on your part. Don’t take it as an obsession. Instead, make it a mission in your life for which you must relentlessly strive. Once you have resolved to achieve and maintain your fitness don’t ever let your tempo slacken off. Don’t allow your old ways of a slothful lifestyle to prevail over your determination and dampen your spirit.

As you begin to have success and start to see results and improvements add another flexibility day and then another day of strength training. Remember to start slowly, new habits such as exercise take time to develop and can be challenging at first. Keep it fun and if possible exercise with a buddy – you will be less likely to skip a day! Before you know it you will be feeling strong, balanced and flexible.

With so many different types of exercise machines available, finding an exercise and fitness rowing machine isn’t going to be difficult. When you shop online, you will get a chance to check out all of the deals that are available and get to know more about the companies selling the machines so that you can find the right one for your particular workout needs.

Types of Workouts

To put it simply, any form of exercise that can get your heart pumping for an extended time period can be considered as a good exercise and a source of fitness workout. However for it to be more effective, you will need to carefully decide and tailor the type of workouts according to your intended fitness goals. For example, if one strives to get thinner, they will need to put more focus on cardio based routines than regular exercises.

The last type of low impact exercise and fitness equipment that you might consider is the elliptical trainer. Using this machine involves standing on a pair of pedals and moving them around a wheel, making it resemble a hybrid between a regular treadmill and a stationary bike. Some elliptical trainers also include cross-training bars, allowing users to strengthen their arm muscles as well as their leg muscles.
