Herbal Medicine for Loosing Weight

In 1527, the Swiss thinker Paracelsus demonstrates that only a small part of the plant has an effect upon the human body (1g per 20 kg of plant), which is what we now call active substance. Later on, scientists have developed methods to isolate these substances.

However, the first complete categorization of all known medicinal plants was printed in a book called Theatrum Botanicum by John Parkinson in 1640 AD. In 1649 Nicholas Culpeper published A Physical Directory, which is considered one of the best herbal pharmacopoeia manuals still quoted today.

The world of today is a world of progress, no one doubts about that.

We have managed to do in 200 years of continuous industrial revolution, what we couldn’t do in thousands and thousands of tumultuous history.

And yet, with all these technological breakdowns and synthetic substances, artificial food, not to mention the reign of King Plastic, some people still find the power and the wisdom to ask themselves how people in the past remained healthy and fit without nutritional supplements, drugs, even antibiotics.

Their secret was that that they used what Mother Nature gave them: the plants to cure themselves. Fortunately, this knowledge hasn’t been forgotten; even if they’re not so widely used, plants have found their place in our civilization.

The story begins thousands of years ago, before the recorded history, when man didn’t know how to write or read, but knew how to follow their instincts.

They discovered that certain herbs could alleviate their pains, others could make a wound disappear and others could even kill them.

In the course of time, societies developed and with them appeared the means to transmit their knowledge other than orally.

5000 years ago, in Ancient China, people used rhubarb (Rheune palmatum) as a purgative without knowing anything about the actual active substances they contained.

Also, they used Ephedra to treat asthma, even though the substance called ephedrine was discovered much later, in 1887 AD.

All oriental ancient civilizations had their insights into the fascinating world of botany, as plants were one of the few elements to which they could resort to heal themselves. The famous king Hammurabi of Babylon (18th century BC) recommended mint to cure constipation and other digestive disorders.

Mesopotamian doctors considered that the best time to take a herbal medicine was at night or early in the morning, a principle which is confirmed nowadays by modern studies.

The Indians had an entire system of rules, prescriptions, remedies and practices, called Ayurveda, many of which involved the use of plants. They also had strict rules about when, by whom and from where the plants should be collected

People in Ancient Egypt knew and used the castor-oil plant, wormwood, saffron and oregano to heal and disinfect wounds; they also put coriander in their tombs so that the spirit will remain healthy in his afterlife.

There are written records of their use of garlic (especially for the workmen who built the pyramids), indigo, mint and opium. The Greek and Roman civilizations have made a major contribution to the medical science.

Although much of their studies stemmed from other cultures (Mesopotamian, Egyptian), they added precious information and, in time, they became more and more concerned about the diseases and cures as natural and realistic processes, rather than spiritual or magical.

Physicians like Hippocrates, Dioscoride and others have recorded their discoveries; their works would enlighten the pre-medieval civilizations for many centuries after their death. Dioscorides wrote De Materia Medica (1st century AD), which contained a list of hundreds of medicinal plants, along with their description and curative qualities.

The Dark Ages met with a lack of any further recorded herbal studies; the knowledge was probably transmitted from generation to generation – parents taught children, monks, even herbalist taught apprentices.

However, there lived a great Persian physician by the name of Avicenna (Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abd Allah Ibn Sina) who wrote one of the most famous books in the history of medical science: The Canon, which also contained information about how plants should be used and their properties.


As chemistry as a science developed, physicians started to use more and more widely synthetic medicines, such as aspirin, which proved to have side effects. Yet all pharmacists and drug producers confirm the fact that, unlike artificially synthesized substances, medicines extracted from plants are more accessible to the metabolism and friendlier with the human body.

What type of oil is good for your heart?

Love your fish oil

Eating fish has always been championed as one of the ways to achieve optimum health. But apparently, fishes contain a more potent, health-giving benefit and that is fish oil, which contains omega-3 fatty acids, a type of polyunsaturated ‘good’ fat that is important to our health.
According to experts at the recently launched Omega-3 Academy, fish oil contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are examples of omega-3 fatty acids.

These play a crucial role in achieving optimum health and protection from certain diseases. Moreover, DHA is considered the building blocks of the brain and nervous system while EPA promotes good blood flow, thereby protecting the heart. EPA is also anti-inflammatory so it helps ease the effects of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
Established by a multi-disciplinary panel of professionals from fields like clinical nutrition, cardiology, family health and diabetology, the Omega-3 Academy Asia is comprised of expert panel of medical professionals from across Asia, who have come together to increase understanding and education on the role and use of omega-3.


Sponsored by sanofi-aventis Consumer Health, the Omega-3 Academy Asia is an Asia-specific organization chaired by Professor Andrew Sinclair from Deakin University in Australia, with members from Korea, Thailand and the Philippines’ Dr. Tommy Ty-Willing, an endocrinologist and Dr. Eugene Reyes, a cardiologist.

The Omega-3 Academy Asia is committed to increasing awareness and understanding of omega-3 fish oil by undertaking a number of initiatives to highlight the impact of decreased omega-3 intake in current Asian diets and convey the associated health benefits of increasing omega-3 consumption.

Good for your heart
Many studies since the early 70s have shown a link between high consumption of oily fish and reduced mortality rates associated with heart disease. For example, a study of Japanese people living in Japan or Brazil showed people who ate fish more often had reduced risk factors for heart disease like obesity, elevated blood pressure and blood sugar imbalances.
These findings, together with the earlier observational studies on Greenland Eskimos, form the basis of the theory that consumption of omega-3 fish oil could prevent artherosclerosis (thickening of the arteries), thrombosis (formation of blood clots inside vessels) and their associated diseases.

Helps increase brain power

In 1972, evidence was published showing that certain omega-3 fatty acids mainly, DHA, was involved with brain growth and development, with research first carried out in rats. Subsequent studies in chickens, primates and eventually humans showed that omega-3 fish oil is essential

for brain development and function. Furthermore, DHA is essential for vision, thought processes and the control of brain function.

Moreover, DHA is also crucial for an unborn child’s brain and is considered critical for brain development, maintenance and intelligence. Other studies have also shown that elderly people with low levels of DHA in the blood are more likely to develop age-related cognitive decline, memory loss and poor concentration than those with higher DHA levels. Furthermore, increased consumption of fish oil has been linked to reduced levels of mild depression, memory loss as well as mood and anxiety disorders.

Fish oil keeps you going

In autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, increased levels of omega-3 (especially EPA), have been shown to limit the multiplication of abnormal cells. Dietary fish oil has been shown to have a positive effect on suppressing chronic and acute inflammation in the joints.
At least 13 clinical trials have been undertaken using fish oil in rheumatoid arthritis, all in patients with late disease who’ve had the disease for at least 10 years. The most consistent benefits have been reduced morning stiffness and decreased tenderness of joints.
One form of inflammation that is effectively addressed by EPA is arthritis. EPA’s anti-inflammatory properties have also been proven to be effective in warding off other inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis, etc.

See clearly
Omega-3 fatty acids DHA & EPA found in fish also have eye-protective effects. Recent research has shown that regularly eating fish could help reduce vision impairment such as macular degeneration in old age. People with intermediate or advanced age-related visual impairment are encouraged to consider increasing their omega-3 consumption.
To help you get your omega-3 requirement, there’s Cenovis Fish Oil, an all-natural fish oil supplement that contains optimal amounts of omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. An Australian brand, Cenovis Fish Oil is a health supplement that has many health benefits.
International guidelines recommend that an adult should consume 500 milligrams of fish oil per day. This can be achieved by eating 2-3 servings of oily fish per week. For people with heart disease, double this amount is recommended (1,000 milligrams of fish oil per day). There are reports on the side effects of fish oil: diarrhea and skin rash. However, test results find these inconclusive and not directly attributable to fish oils.

Costing less than P10 per capsule, Cenovis Fish Oil comes from Peruvian waters, one of the world’s cleanest seas. Unlike other fish oil that come from shark, cod and other big fish, Cenovis Fish Oil comes from 3 kinds of small fish: anchovies, mackerel and sardines. These are small deep sea fish that reproduce easily, thus, no worries of extinction. Additionally, these fishes have a short lifespan making them less exposed to pollutants and contamination in the seas.

Individually packed for freshness, the fish oil extraction of Cenovis is done in a highly-advanced and sanitary process in Norway, which makes it odorless and with no fishy aftertaste. Cenovis Fish Oil is available in all Mercury Drug outlets and other leading drugstores nationwide.

Stop Eating Out and Make Easy Dinner Recipes Every Night!

These days, families are doing a lot more. Parents are working overtime, and kids are too, at after school tutoring and sports practice. Families barely have enough time to eat dinner, much less prepare it, sit down at the dinner table to eat it, and wash dishes after dinner.

The alternative to eating at home is eating out, which can be pricey and unhealthy. If you’re tired of eating out, you may be wondering how to start eating at home and making easy dinner recipes for your family. If this sounds like you, look no further. Below are five easy
steps you can take to finally start eating family dinner together at the kitchen table.


1. Make sure you always have the basic ingredients to make easy dishes on hand.
You’ll probably want to keep what you need to make macaroni and cheese, chicken
casserole, hamburgers, fried rice, and other well-loved, easy dishes. It’s also
a good idea to always store fresh or powdered garlic, vinegar, Parmesan cheese,
oregano, and baking soda in your pantry.


2. Experiment with staple dishes, so your family never gets tired of them.  Don’t be afraid to
try out new things and get a little adventurous. Just don’t go too far and try
something like putting tuna salad on a pancake!


3. Try out different easy recipes you find online, and figure out what your family
likes. Once you figure out which dishes they like, you can start cooking these often. Look for recipes with a simple, short list of ingredients. These recipes will be easier for you to prepare. You can also think back to what you enjoyed eating with your family as a kid, and try to replicate those meals.


4. Get a crock-pot, a panini grill, and a wok. These cooking appliances are very useful. You can just throw a few ingredients in a crock-pot in the morning, and you’ll have a stew ready for your family to eat in the evening. You can turn an ordinary sandwich into a delicious, hot meal with a panini grill. A wok allows you to easily make delicious and authentic tasting stir-fries that your family will adore.


5. Make it a requirement for each family member to wash his or her own dish. This
will save one person from having to do all the work. Family members can take turns washing pots and pans. Cleaning up doesn’t have to be a time-consuming ordeal, if everyone pitches in.


Keeping your kitchen stocked with the basics
will ensure that you will always be able to make easy dinner recipes for your
family. Cooking can actually be fun, if you allow yourself to relax and experiment with different meal ideas and cooking equipment like a panini grill or a wok.

Tofu as Meat Replacement

Tofu: it's like Tokwa but it's softer. Tofu is great meat replacement because it is almost the same texture as meat when fried.

It was first used in China around 200 B.C.

It has long been a staple of Asian cuisine.

It soaks up flavors and is best when frozen for at least 30 minutes or served with a flavorful sauce.

The two types of tofu

  •  fresh, water-packed tofu (always refrigerated) for when you want the tofu to hold its shape, such as when baking or grilling,

  • silken tofu, which is packed in aseptic boxes and usually not refrigerated, for purring. Try firm or extra-firm tofu for baking, grilling, sauteing, and frying and soft or silken tofu for creamy sauces, desserts, and dressings. Silken tofu is used for making a heavenly chocolate cream pie but will fall apart if you try to make it into shish kebab.

  •  When baking tofu, cook it in a marinade so it will soak up more flavor. To give tofu a meatier texture, try freezing it for two to 24 hours and then defrosting it.


Press the water out of the tofu prior to preparing it. Wrap the tofu in a towel and set something heavy on top of it for at least 20 minutes, and it will be ready for marinades, sauces, freezing, and cooking.

It is also a good substitute for baking powder.

Nippon Tofu is a great substitute for egg

Benefits of Tofu:

It's a good source of protein since it belongs to soy products
