Lactuca virosa or wild lettuce is a natural remedy that grows throughout North America and England, making it an accessible painkiller to substitute the chemicals often advertised.

Wild lettuce is an herbal remedy with some evidence of being a sedative and #painkiller, and adding it to your garden provides a series of benefits.

Wild Lettuce has been associated with fighting insomnia and relaxing the body from anxiety and spasms. The herb is known to calm the nervous system, relaxing muscles to help with several different issues such as:
Restlessness, Insomnia, Stress-induced indigestion, Coughs (by relaxing the respiratory system), Spasms and cramps

Adding wild lettuce to your daily routine by drinking it as a tea can help limit these problems for you.

Wild Lettuce has also been associated with lessening pain from menstrual cramps, muscle pains, and other tissues that have been irritated. There’s a reason it has earned the name opium lettuce, as it has numbing effects like opiates with the advantage of not being as addictive or dangerous. Therefore, consuming the properties of these leaves can safely give you pain reducing benefits.

When using #wildlettuce, you should use dried leaves to get the medicinal benefits. These leaves should be plucked in July and August when they are at their best for harvesting.
A safe dose is about a 2-4ml tincture about three times a day, or 1-2 teaspoons of the dried leaves steeped in boiling water for 10-15 minutes to infuse the nutrients in the water. Drink this about three times a day.

There can be an irritation if you apply it directly to your skin, so be careful when using it as a topical remedy. Always do a small patch test before using.[vi] In addition, don’t use wild lettuce if you:
Are pregnant
Have an enlarged prostate
Are allergic to ragweed and similar plants,
Have glaucoma
Are going into surgery. #uglybynature

Vitamin D plays a critical role in maintaining bone health. When blood levels of calcium begin to drop, the body responds in several ways. It promotes the conversion of vitamin D into its active form, which then travels to the intestines (to encourage greater calcium absorption into the blood) and to the kidneys (to minimize calcium loss in the urine). For bone health, an adequate intake of vitamin D is no less important than calcium.
Vitamin K, which is found mainly in green, leafy vegetables, likely plays one or more important roles in #calcium regulation and bone formation. Low levels of circulating vitamin K have been linked with low bone density, and supplementation with vitamin K shows improvements in biochemical measures of bone health. A report from the Nurses’ Health Study suggests that women who get at least 110 micrograms of vitamin K a day are 30 percent less likely to break a hip than women who get less than that. Among the nurses, eating a serving of lettuce or other green, leafy vegetable a day cut the risk of hip fracture in half when compared with eating one serving a week. Data from the Framingham Heart Study also shows an association between high vitamin K intake and reduced risk of hip fracture in men and women, and increased bone mineral density in women. Getting one or more servings per day of broccoli, Brussels sprouts, dark green lettuce, collard greens, or kale should be enough to meet the daily recommended target of 120 micrograms per day for men and 90 micrograms per day for women.

In a 12-year Harvard study of 78,000 women, those who drank #milk three times a day actually broke more bones than women who rarely drank milk. Similarly, a 1994 study of elderly men and women in Sydney, Australia, showed that higher #dairy product consumption was associated with increased fracture risk. Those with the highest dairy product consumption had approximately double the risk of hip fracture compared to those with the lowest consumption. #uglybynature

Bananas improve your calcium absorption and will prevent calcium loss in your body.

Bananas are known to boost brain function and will improve the cognitive and reasoning ability. This occurs due to the rich potassium content which is vital for proper brain activity.

As they improve calcium absorption in the body, bananas can prevent the formation of kidney stones and may also prevent kidney cancer. They will improve your bone and teeth health as well and protect you from macular degeneration.

Due to the rich iron content, bananas can improve your blood chart and fight anemia.

Bananas are rich in fiber which will improve your digestion and fight numerous digestive problems such as constipation and diarrhea.

Bananas are a great fruit for diabetics as they can regulate the level of glucose in your blood. .

They can also help you in cases of #depression, PMS and will improve your mood.

Consuming bananas regularly has been linked to lower risk of heart attack or stroke due to their rich potassium and low sodium content.

Bananas can fight depression thanks to tryptophan, a precursor to the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin, which regulate your mood.

#Bananas are rich in vitamin B6, which can fight inflammation in your joints and help you in cases of type 2 diabetes. #uglybynature

The point of making sure we consume #probiotics is that the bacteria, while aurally unappetizing, are instrumental in keeping our gut in harmony. They help us break down food, combat variously embarrassing and unhealthy digestive issues, and wage a behind-the-scenes battle with other, less altruistic microbes that may cause infections.

1. Unpasteurized #Sauerkraut. Pasteurization kills some of the good stuff.

2. #Kimchi is a spicy, fermented cabbage with loads of health benefits, including probiotics, lots of vitamins, and antioxidants.
3. Full of antioxidants and B-vitamins, miso, the Japanese staple, is reported to have as many as 160 different bacteria strains.

4. #Tempeh, an Indonesian dish of fermented soybeans, has a firmer texture than tofu as well as the probiotic benefits derived from the fermentation process.

5. Sourdough bread is probiotic-friendly. Apparently, all that effort to save the starter not only pays off with taste but also via usefully nutritious bacteria.

6. Sour #pickles. Seek out varieties that are naturally fermented in sea salt and water as opposed to all-out vinegar. .

7. #Olives can also be a great fix for your innards. The key here, as with any pickled product really, is that the briny solution fosters the growth of good bacteria.

8. Soy and nut milk already naturally have some probiotics, and new products are being made with active cultures added to them. So, remember, even though soy’s name has been tarnished of late, it’s not the plants fault but rather what has been done to it.

9. The superstar of #fermented healthy stuff, kombucha has re-blasted onto the scene in the last decade. Kombucha knows detoxification. #Kombucha knows active enzymes. Kombucha knows antioxidants, amino acids, and probiotics, too. Over 2000 years in the making, there’s not much this tea can’t do. #uglybynature

#Babycarrots today are a breed apart from the original product, which were peeled and reshaped from broken or misshapen larger carrots. California carrot farmer Mike Yurosek was the entrepreneur in the 1980s who reshaped the way you think about #carrots.

As Yurosek’s method of peeling and reshaping has evolved over the years, the popularity of the product has grown. Today, farmers produce hybrid carrots designed to meet the needs of the consumer who wants a fresh out-of-the-bag snack without the hassle of peeling and cleaning. But, does all that convenience come at a price?

Part of the process baby carrots undergo before reaching the grocery store is a chlorine bath. The largest carrot farm, Grimmway Farms, reports that chlorine is used on all their baby carrots to prevent food poisoning. After their chlorine wash they are rinsed, packaged and shipped.

#Chlorine, used to clean and preserve the carrots, is a common chemical found in your water supply, pesticides, paper and plastics. In the last 30 years, a growing body of evidence has suggested that chlorine and by-products trigger significant negative health conditions.

It isn’t the chlorine that causes the problems, but rather the disinfection byproducts (DBPs) produced when chlorine interacts with organic matter. These byproducts are far more toxic than the chlorine, including trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids. In this instance, the term organic is used to mean a compound that is carbon-based.

This means these byproducts are produced in all carrots, whether toxic pesticides were used in the growing process or not. Long-term risks of exposure to DBPs include excessive free radical formation, which accelerates aging and vulnerability to gene mutation and cancer. More than 600 DBPs have been discovered, some of which are linked to liver malfunction, arteriosclerotic damage and neurodegenerative changes.

Scientists are only beginning to understand the long- and short-term impact of chlorine-based chemicals. The healthiest option is to buy whole, unprocessed carrots — Ideally

As with most places, Russia too noticed a remarkable increase in cancer rates during the 19th century. Soviet researchers looked at cancer rates by region and noticed certain geographical areas of the Soviet block were practically immune to cancer while other areas seemed to be suffering from a cancer epidemic. Looking deeper into those areas they noticed a correlation between high levels of Kombucha intake and low cancer rates. over the course of the 19th century, both Russia and Germany conducted many studies on the health benefits and potential cancer fighting properties of Kombucha, only to have lost most of that data during the cold war and political transitions.

On the bright side, these transitions lead to the West becoming aware of Kombucha. However, it has only been in very recent years that most of us have heard of this powerful antioxidant. However, as is typical in the west, there are basically no studies ongoing into the health benefits of Kombucha as there is little profit to be made by corporations…after all, the average person can make it at home for about fifty cents per gallon.

Probably the number one benefit of Kombucha is its ability to aid the body in producing many of the enzymes and bacterial acids it uses to aid the liver and kidneys in detoxifying your body. Glucaric acid has been shown in clinical studies to aid cancer patients such as Ronald Reagan who started drinking Kombucha regularly after his cancer diagnosis in 1987, remember he didn’t die until 2004 of old age.

Close behind detoxification has to be Kombucha’s ability to aid the body maintain digestive health. Because it is fermented by a colony of bacteria and yeast, Kombucha is a pro-biotic beverage. Next time you feel like your body is not processing food correctly or suffer from digestive uncomfortableness, try Kombucha.

#Kombucha made from sweetened tea (usually black tea, but sometime green tea as well) fermented by a colony of bacteria and yeast. The end result is an elixir that has strong properties for fighting #cancer, #arthritis and other degenerative diseases. #uglybynature
