Curing Yourself with Food

The Role Of Herbs
And Spices In Diet Pt 1

Part One

When we think of healing foods sometimes we do not consider the little extras that we often put on our food to give it more seasoning and to make it tastier for everyone at the table.

Put the saltshaker away when it comes time to season a casserole or a pot of soup as too much salt in the diet can spell disaster for your circulatory system and your kidneys. Instead reach for healthy herbs and seasonings to jazz up your next meal and help make you healthier to boot! Herbs and spices have been used for centuries to treat a variety of health and medical conditions. Examples of these include inflammatory conditions, infections, autoimmune disorders, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and nausea.

There is no doubt that when it comes to herbs and spices there are plenty of healing properties worth getting familiar with. Garlic has long been used as a folk remedy for many ailments and research into the benefits of garlic has shown that it is a strong preventative force against stroke and heart disease.

Garlic is also instrumental in lowering high blood pressure. Further studies cited as test tub studies have shown that garlic is very close to a natural form of an antibiotic. Garlic is full of substances that help to detoxify the body and are able to disperse carcinogens that are building in the system. Many tests have shown that a diet rich in garlic helps to lower the total cholesterol rate of an individual, including the bad cholesterol or LDL while at the same time it raises the good HDL cholesterol in the bloodstream.

Garlic also fights a great number of bacteria and viruses and therefore helps to prevent infections. Garlic is associated with a decreased risk of stomach cancer and this fact is well documented in both Italy and China. It is important to make it known that garlic is best eaten in its raw state and its medicinal properties are at their height when garlic is cut up, sliced up or chopped.   

Quick Reflexology Fact

The only possible thing that might come up in direct relation to the appearance of your feet may be if you have a severe problem with corns or the like. In this case, your reflexologist may recommend treatment options. Ticklish feet are not usually a problem for a reflexologist. Once pressure is applied, the sensation will quickly turn from a tickle to massage and you should be ok.

Garlic is a member of what is called the allium family as it contains a substance called allicin. Other members of this family include onions and scallions. Ginger is a very odd looking substance found in the produce department of grocery stores but it is very good for the body. Ginger works well to calm an upset stomach and can be purchased in capsule from. 

Ginger is particularly good to take before embarking on a road trip if you are prone to motion sickness. Ginger snaps and ginger bread are also effective at calming an upset stomach. Pregnant women are often encouraged to consume ginger when they are suffering from morning sickness.


Ginger is a miracle herb. It is great for infections as well as helping you with energy and clarity


Ginger is also believed to be helpful in the fight to lose weight as it works as a natural dietary aid. The reason it works is that ginger helps to boost the rate in which the body burns calories. This has been borne out in studies conducted by researchers in Australia. When coupled with other spices including rosemary, thyme, oregano and pepper, ginger is excellent in regards to its antioxidant properties and therefore is proficient at fighting cancer.
