Anti aging foods and herbs

Common Questions and Answers about Anti aging foods and herbs


Avatar f tn What vitamins can I take to prevent aging? Exclusively the face and neck areas. If there is not a vitamin, can herbs help and what kind? Any Natural Preventions?
Avatar n tn Take failures as learning lessons and build on it. Look at both sides, bad and good, and try to begin and end the day with a positive. Do something meaningful for yourself and others. Don't bury yourself in a pre-made coffin lined with regrets, negativity, sourness, pessismism and narrowness, because it makes other people not want to be around you all the time and it makes you miserable. Don't listen to the depression. Take the help and support.
Avatar m tn Can you share your anti-aging regimen like cream, facial wash, soap, supplements, diet, etc. Would appreciate any info. Thanks!
Avatar n tn First of all, we don't know what meds you're on. Herbs can conflict with them. We also don't know your condition -- devil's claw is one good herb for your condition, but it also contains a little of the acid that causes aspirin to cause internal bleeding, so if you have that problem you might want to go easy on it. If you don't, it's fine. There are many herbs that are anti-inflammatory in action. Two used often with RA are the one you mentioned and boswellia.
Avatar m tn Cinnamon contains compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce the likelihood of cellular damage and chronic disease. It's been shown to protect against heart disease by preventing blood platelets from clumping and to inhibit abnormal cell growth. Cloves are a great source of antioxidants that scavenge free radicals and help protect cells. They are also a powerful antifungal in the body, whether ingested or applied topically.
559992 tn?1216169738 I can see you are a person that has some real issues; pain & depression. Obviously, your doctor knows more about your condition than anyone else, but it sounds like he's letting the pain continue and wants to sedate you to the extent that your depression state lowers....not accepting the fact that one of the reasons you are depressed is because of the various pain issues and Big Pharma is getting their hooks into you.
1763193 tn?1488895865 What you can do is buy a good herbal and look up the individual herbs being used. I have a lot of experience with herbal formulas, having managed health food stores for 18 years during which I did a lot of reading and was trained by some of the top herbalists and naturopaths in the US (most of them also own product companies and write books, so they wanted us to be able to sell their names and products and promote their books and, also, not harm anyone using their products).
Avatar m tn Has anyone tried certain amino acids and herbs for improving their health and immune system and etc. Like I read research pro-line,lysine with Green tea and vitamin C extract is good for blood/cardiovascular health and as well cancer prevention treatment. Others - olive leaf extract, selenium, colostrum, cal/mag.
Avatar n tn * Herbs bugleweed [Lycopus virginica] and lemon balm [Melissa officinalis] can help reduce the production of thyroid hormone. The herb Motherwort [Leonurus cardiaca] can help regulate rapid heartbeat. * Over consumption of uncooked goitrogenic foods can depress thyroid activity: brussels sprouts, cabbage of all kinds, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, peaches, pears, rapini, spinach, strawberries, radishes, rutabagas, turnips, soybeans, pine nuts, peanuts, millet, rape seed (canola oil).
Avatar n tn Eggs, drugs, salty snacks, snack, chips, pastries and confectionery products, sandwiches, frozen foods ,and too salty quickly poached ,salt vinegar ,sauce and tomato juice, Pickled, roasted foods. These are enemy of liver. But water , fruit , Lettuce, cucumber, carrots and sprouts with lemon Game salad before the food until you do not obese.
216278 tn?1308861082 Alkaline foods are vegetables, non-citrus fruits, cereal grasses (wheatgrass, barley grass) and herbs like black cohosh and valerian root. (acidic foods to avoid - meats, dairy, most grains - basically my entire diet!!) 2. Get lots of essential fatty acids: fish, fish oil, nonhydrogenatd cold pressed oils like flaxseed and pumpkin seed oils, eggs soy, raw nuts and seeds. Also wintergreen vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, rutabga, brussel sprouts.
Avatar f tn I just found out I am pregnant and I use Oil of Olay Regenerist night and day. I am wondering if that is safe. I had a co-worker who was told not to use it while she was pregnant. Has anyone else heard anything about it?
535822 tn?1443976780 Turmeric is outstanding as an anti-inflammatory and I need to use it more. I use fresh basil and cilantro whenever I can. Just smelling them makes me feel happy. I am a big lover of curries so have many different types that I use often (sometimes mix up my own) and we use a lot of dried red chili flakes to flavor.
Avatar m tn Why is it when a person is on chemo for cancer they are encourged to take lots of antioxadants and vitamins and herbs to lesson the sx,BUT when taking chemo for hep c we are told to advoid herbs and myself an I thing its ok to be careful when taking "nutrients"while on the combo tx,BUT again,i think sometimes it may blown out of proportion...i wish i knew why the disparancies (spelling) in the two treatments?.
Avatar f tn Thankfully, one of the best ways to decrease intestinal inflammation is to eat a paleo diet! By avoiding potentially irritating and inflammatory foods such as grains and omega-6 fatty acids, we can reduce intestinal inflammation and encourage proper gut health."

Avatar m tn Here's the problem: nobody ever claimed gingko by itself did anything about dementia. It does help oxygenate the blood vessels, and protects blood vessel walls' integrity, but herbs are used in combination, not alone. Problem with these pharmaceutical studies is, they always study herbs in isolation, and that's not how herbalists use them. There's a difference between how herbs are advertised and how they're used by professionals.
Avatar m tn no fatty foods is a start but try anti parasitic herbs,buy them online,they are cheap enough
1075109 tn?1281835691 If you see a naturopath, they should know of these contraindications, but again, it depends on who you see and how good they are. And doctors are downright ignorant and hostile to natural medicine, so they have no interest in these problems, for the most part. But if you google any remedy you're considering, you should find a site that includes the theoretical contraindications. Again, best of luck in your search.
Avatar m tn Carefully check your diet for inflammatory foods as well, and elimiate any intolerances you have (get off gluten and dairy for an extended period). Would also recommend a good Omega 3 EFA supplement.
Avatar m tn By itself probably not. Herbs and natural remedies are usually used in combination. Passionflower is considered a systemic anti-anxiety herb, meaning regular use over a period of time helps the nervous system calm down. Quicker and stronger natural remedies would be kava and holy basil -- the first works on GABA, probably, and the second works on cortisol production, which creates the physiological symptoms of anxiety. Herbs that balance the adrenals, such as ashwagandha, might help as well.
Avatar f tn I have ordered my anti miscarriage herbs and I eat all gmo free and organic foods. I was a terrible eater before. With my daughter I lived off of salami(only thing I could stomach) and mustard sandwiches and chocolate.
653169 tn?1303446369 Don't know exactly what tumeric supplement you're taking or why. Tumeric as far as I know isn't a blood thinner. It's an antiinflammatory and very good for liver support. However, it's a hot herb, so it could aggravate your GERD, and it might not. Depends on how you respond to hot herbs. You can help with your GERD by trying a couple ounces of aloe juice every day starting dose; DGL might help as well. Don't lie down right after eating.
Avatar m tn Maybe some people react good to what you will react badly to. The way I see, my body did not have any problem with PVC's and tachycardia's at a younger age and I didn't take any "heart healthy herbs and supplements" back then... so why would my body need them now? It's better to work on the cause rather than the symptoms. But if you can't find the cause, then working on the symptoms is all you can do I guess. I hope you find something that works.
Avatar f tn Do you mean chamomile tea? It is suppose to have anti-spasmodic properties and also helps encourage sleep. But then again, those natural foods people also swear by catnip. You can soak in a tub with it or drink it. I say if you enjoy it, drink it. If it helps so much the better. I wouldn't give up my meds for it.
Avatar m tn Ooh stay away from those, they can induce serious anxiety and hypomania. If you mean "diet pills" What they are supposed to do is up your metabolism, but there is no actually proof that they do that, except for folks who have less then 20lbs.I see all those commercials with "special" herbs or supplements. I actually called on company and they refused to tell me exactly what was in it. Like herbs they are not FDA approved.
