Olive oil is packed with healing potential!

The "good fat."

Here some amazing effects olive oil has on the body!

  • Anti cancer:  It is believed that olive oil lowers the risk of prostate cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer.  Extra virgin olive oil also triggers apoptosis, or triggered cell death, in cancer cells.  In regions of Mediterranean Europe where olive oil is used most, cancer rates are significantly lower. 
  • Heart health:  Olive oil contains monounsaturated fat which is known as "good fat" and is heart healthy.  Phytochemicals in olive oil lower cholesterol as well further protecting against heart disease.
  • Diabetes:  Monounsaturated fats in olive oil help manage cholesterol.  This beneficial fat found in olive oil helps to manage triglyceride levels, increases healthy HDL cholesterol levels, and reduces bad  or LDL cholesterol.  Some evidence also suggests that monounsaturated fat plays a role in stabilizing blood glucose levels.
  • Inflammation:  An article published in 2005 by researchers from Philadelphia identified a compound in olive oil called oleocanthal has an anti inflammatory effect.  Their studies concluded that the compound acts like ibuprofen or other anti inflammatory medications.
  • Weight management:  The simple fact that olive oil contains monounsaturated fats makes it beneficial to the body in different ways.  Try switching from saturated fats to monounsaturated fats and it will aid in losing excess weight.  Successfully managing your weight and saving on health insurance go hand in hand.
Legend has it that the olive tree was a gift from Athena, the wise warrior goddess who recognized the power of peace.  Athena competed with Poseidon for the affections of the Greeks and offered the versatile olive as a gift in response to the sea god's offering of a saltwater well.  The stories are almost as epic as the true healing potential of olive oil.  Luckily, olive oil is delicious and can be included in many  recipes.  Switch out the unhealthy fats for this wonder oil.

Huge results from juicing raw cannabis!

     It seems that every year there is a new expert or study coming forward with compelling evidence of the fantastic medical powers contained in the cannabis plant.  Conditions like diabetes, inflammation, cancer, infections, depression, pain, and sleep disorders can be treated naturally using various cannabis strains.  With health insurance and cost of living to consider, should we be looking to nature for our healing needs?  Even strains that have zero psychoactive effects contain compounds that battle illnesses and free radicals while delivering sweet relief to patients.  Smoking cannabis yields some pain and appetite stimulation effects for terminal patients but is not the ideal method of medicating using cannabis as fire destroys up to 80% of the beneficial compounds in the plant matter.  Rick Simpson, the legendary cannabis activist from Canada, uses essential oils from cannabis to cure not just terminal cancers but other serious and deadly health conditions.  The concentrated oil is extremely effective, but is there yet another approach to medicating with this wonder plant?
