Do You Know About These 7 Treasures?. . .A few Natural Products

God has given us natural food; everything that we need. We just need to open our eyes and see.


Natural Products

Have you ever observed that the hospitals serve gelatin to many of the patients?  Besides the fact that gelatin is nutritious and has very few calories, there may be more to it than meets the eyes.

1. Pain Reduction

Did you know that Gelatin can reduce pain in the joints? According to diynatural.com it can do just that. Furthermore they suggest that it can produce a more helpful sleep. Also, according to WebMD., gelatin contains collagen a material that makes up cartilage and bone. They further add that it may be helpful for the bone and other joint conditions.
2. Sesame Oil

A relative of mine opened my eyes to the benefits of Sesame Oil. She explained that she basically just swished some of the oil in her mouth about 2-20 minutes, spits it out, then brushes her teeth. She explained how it was is 100% organic and is good for the gums and the teeth.Also 20 minutes will pass by fast when you are getting dressed. 

I decided to do some research on this before attempting to try this. I discovered that using Sesame Oil known as (swishing) for teeth and gum care evolved in India at least 3,000 years ago according to earthclinic.com. They further added that swishing with sesame oil eliminate bacteria, whitens the teeth, and much more. Now this is not to take the place of regular dental checkups, but is a natural way to keep gums healthy and teeth whiter. It is also very inexpensive.
3. Herbal Iron Extract

This liquid iron extract is known by the name of Floradix. It is rich in iron and B-vitamins, easily absorbed, non-constipating, contains several herbs such as spinach leaves, fenel and much more. The great thing about this iron supplement is that it is in a liquid form which can be helpful for those that are unable to tolerate the iron in a pill form. There have been those that complain about stomach upset with the iron pills. This liquid can be taken on an empty stomach before eating also.  I also have a friend that just loves Floradix.  

Note:


In this article I discuss that beside the fact this vegetable is high in vitamin C, it is very tasty to the palate.



4. Forskolin. . . For Weight Loss

According to healthline.com Forskolin natural supplement can promote fat loss while preserving muscle mass. While this herbal medicine has been used for centuries in other cultures, there are those that are now using it with great success. This was also mentioned to me by a friend who takes the herbal medicine.

5. Charcoal. . . .for gums and teeth

This activated charcoal is not absorbed by the body toxins but it does attach to the toxins directly removing them from your system according to Holistic-Healing information.com. Again this is not to replace your regular dental checkups. This also was praised highly by another relative of mine.   

6. Vinegar. . . many uses

Did you know that vinegar has many uses? I love to use vinegar for basting and seasoning many of my meats such has baked ham, steak, and roast beef. It really helps to may the meat tender as well. While some people put hot sauce on their chitterlins, I put vinegar on them. While they may look different they tasted delicious.  Now that is definitely a taste for the palate.

7. Copper Bracelet 

Did you know that according to healthline.com there is a claim that tiny amounts of copper rub off the bracelet onto the skin that absorbs into the body and helps regrow joint cartilage that has been lost because of arthritis. I do have friends that claim the bracelets has helped ease their pain. They also claim the bracelets are inexpensive.

How to Be Aware of New Stranger Danger

As Technology increases so does the stranger danger. Tricky people are discovering new techniques to lure your children away from you.


TRICKY PERSON

Does your child know what at stranger is? Does your child know that a predator may not always be a stranger, but instead someone close to the family? A few of the latest stranger dangers are listed below:

1. Drones

There has been discussion of drones being used for pizza or retail products delivery by merchants, but now there is the possibility that drones are being used by possible predators lurking after your children.  Possibly you have seen drones or your children may have asked for a drone for Christmas or their birthday. Did you know that a drone has been seen near the Windemere's playground in Ohio according to foxnews. The problem with this is that it occurred not during the school time and it could lure children away from the school ground. Drones having talking capability and also picture taking capabilities. This can be an invasion of privacy.



2. Tricky People

Possibly you have had the conversation with your child about stranger danger. Maybe it is time to have the new conversation about tricky people. Today.com emphasizes that if a safe adult needs helps they will generally ask another safe adult as oppose to asking a child.


3. Empower Your Child

Anxioustoddlers.com talks about a few tips that could possibly save your child's life. I know that I have seen children in the store maybe having tantrums and the parent might be dragging them out of the store, but sometimes it might not be the parent. I like the tip they discuss about having the child scream “Who are you, you are not my mom, or help. They even suggest if in a store for your child to knock over items and cause a commotion.




4. Vocal

Let your children know that this is the time to get loud and scream “HELP” OR “FIRE,” if they are in trouble.

I recall the movie "Silence of the Lamb.” The man asked the lady to help him fit a couch into the van and she ended up being kidnapped by him. Children need to know if they are asked to help find a lost dog, that this could be a technique being used to kidnapped them. I also, remember watching a program where the woman said her child was outside playing and she briefly went into the house to get something she forgot. When she came back out, her child was gone, because she had been kidnapped just within a matter of seconds.

5. Are there registered sex offenders living near you?

This is just good information to know and be aware of. Sometimes you may even discover that there are multiple offenders in one specific area.

Check the FBI Register listed below to find out if sex offenders are living in your area, daycare, or school area:

How to Be Intentional in 2018. . . 5 Things You Need to Know

Are you focused? Are you intentional? There are ways to be intentional. Do you let others decide what your day will be about? Will you be intentional this year? Why not start making a plan to be more intentional.

FROM THE ASPHY FAMILY
free happy new year animated gifs 2017
Living Intentional 


****A few tips are listed below on being intentional in 2018****



“For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” That is so awesome. Did you know there are several things that you can do to be intentional because God gives you freewill. You can have purposeful living. It is possible.


1. Sleep Habits

Do you have trouble getting a good night's sleep? Do you sometimes just toss and turn? Do you decide to just lay there. Possibly there are good sleeping habits that you can use to help you get a good night's sleep. I have found that during days I may have trouble falling asleep repeating bible scriptures that I have memorized is really helpful and soothing to me as well. I know personally that it is important to not deviate from you regular sleep schedule, because a couple of times I would deviate and stay up late watching a movie. I discovered that was a big mistake. It usually compromised my immune system and I would end up getting sick. Sometimes it is hard to stick to this schedule because there is so much I want to do and especially in the wintertime when the days are shorter there is just not enough time in a day. That old cliche “Rome wasn’t built in a day” makes sense. I have come to the realization that what does not get done today will have to be done tomorrow or the day after.




2. Gratefulness

Do you express your gratefulness. Of course things may not be as great as you had anticipated, but look around. Think of those that are less fortunate than you. I recall as a young child when I lived with my father, we did not have a car. That did not matter to me, because we could take the bus or the train to where we wanted to go. As I watched Judge Mabel and one of her cases, it was so sad to see this young woman taking her mother to court. She was very ungrateful and did not even seen the sacrifices that her mother had made so that she would be where she is at now. This young woman was very focused on appearances. She actually felt she was better than her mother. Had it not been for her mother she would not have been here today. Think of those that were not able and are not able to get an education. Think about those that are living in shelters or even just living in their cars because of circumstances. Circumstances can affect everyone. Be grateful for what you have.

3. Exercise

I cannot emphasize enough about making exercise a priority.
Are you intentional by exercising? Did you know that increasing the blood flow nourishes the skin cells? According to Web MD, besides nourishing the skin it keeps the skin cells vital. In addition, they emphasize that exercise is important to healthy skin and increasing the blood flow helps flush cellular debris out of the system. I walk several days a week and find that it is quite beneficial to me. It is not too late to improve your circulatory system. Why not start today?
About 600,000 Americans die from heart disease each year according to The Center for Disease and Health Prevention. In addition, they add that coronary heart disease kills more than 385,000 people annually. That is a lot of people.
4. Kindness

Did you know that kindness is infectious? Do you just wait until Veterans Day to honor a vet? I recall my husband and I going into the store. Before he could grab the door a nice lady took the door and said, “No you go in first and thanks for protecting our country.” My husband had on his veteran's cap. This was how she knew he was a veteran. It was totally unexpected, but I could tell my husband really appreciated it.

I also recall one day my husband and I was at an event out of town. This man approached my husband and said, “Welcome home here is $100.00. Take you and your
wife out to dinner.” I thought that was so sweet and very unexpected.


5. Increase Spiritual Feeding


Just as you feed your physical body the spiritual needs to be fed as well. I will be intentional to feed by body the word of God, which will be essential for my emotional well being. This brings to mind when I was talking with a friend regarding an episode in my life. The great thing about my friend is that she told me what the word of God says about it. Then made it clear this is not what she was saying, but showed me scripture as to what God said about it. I will always value that advice.

Have You Had Rutabagas?

Has there ever been a time that you were cooking so many different things for the holiday that you forgot a dish that you really wanted to make?


How to Cook Rutabagas

I will share what happened to me. I even had my list written out and I still forgot to cook it. I wanted to cook rutabagas for Thanksgiving. How could I forget to do that. I love rutabagas. I also did research and discovered that rutabagas are definitely very nutrition and good for you.

1. What Is a Rutabaga?

Did you know that a rutabaga is a cross between a turnip and a cabbage, that it  slows the growth of cancerous tumors, it is high in fiber, boost the immune systems, is high in vitamin C, lowers the blood pressure, and does much more. This is according to organicfacts.net. Rutabagas tastes nothing like a turnip. It is a totally different taste. Now don't make the mistake that I did one day. I thought I picked up a rutabaga, but accidentally picked up a rutabagas are usually much larger than turnips too.




2. How to Cook

First you peel it with a potato peeler or what I do is boil it about 10-15 minutes then take a knife and peel the skin off easily and cut it or dice it up. Rutabagas are quite tough and really too large for my fingers. After peeling and dicing, season to taste with salt and pepper then return to boil about 60 minutes or until done. You will know it is done when it is tender and appears dark orange like a baked sweet potato.

3. History of the Rutabaga

According to Dr.Mercola the rutabaga originated in Bohemia in the 17th century as a hybrid between the turnip and wild cabbage. He even further suggests a mixture of mash rutabaga, potatoes, onions, and carrots, seasoned with butter and salt as dish in itself. I have not tried this yet, but it sounds very delightedly and good for the palate.

4. Rutabaga and Ham

Did you know that you can mix ham with rutabagas? According to geniuskitchen.com diced rutabagas with diced ham is another dish. It is call southern rutabaga with ham bits. There are so many different ways that you can cook rutabagas. You can roast them or even eat them raw.
