DID YOU KNOW (www.didyouknow.org)
Snake oil is a traditional Chinese remedy for joint pain and inflammation. Imitations with unidentified or mischaracterized ingredients have caused the term "snake oil" to become synonymous in Western culture with a class of remedies marketed as miraculous panaceas but which actually provide little health benefit. ALSO DID YOU KNOW Researchers have found that a specific gene variant may be linked to bad driving. According to their study, those who possess the variant performed more than 20 percent worse on a driving test than those with a different DNA sequence. Additionally, they estimate that approximately 30 percent of Americans have the variant, possibly explaining why there are so many bad drivers on the roads.
TIP OF THE DAY
How to Treat Mental Exhaustion Naturally
Mental exhaustion can cause you to lose motivation and energy. You may feel a constant desire to sleep. This has many causes, such as side effects of prescription medications, stimulating substances like caffeine, alcohol and sugar, or may be related to a mental illness such as depression. Often, mental exhaustion can be treated and relieved with natural home treatments.
Replace your morning coffee with ginseng. Coffee can actually drain your energy instead of stimulating it, so ginseng is a natural and healthy alternative. Ginseng tea helps the body to adapt better to emotional and mental stressors that can cause mental exhaustion.
Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables, which contain the important minerals your body needs to prevent mental exhaustion. Green leafy vegetables contain potassium, an important element in the protection against fatigue, and calcium, which is essential for relaxation and the alleviation of tension that can cause fatigue.
Drink a glass of grapefruit juice and lemon juice daily to help prevent and relieve mental exhaustion. Grapefruit has proven to effectively dispel fatigue and tiredness, and is particularly helpful after a long day's work. Just combine lemon juice to grapefruit juice in a one to one ratio and drink up.
Make a natural energy-restoring bath to combat mental exhaustion. Add seven drops of lavender essential oil, three drops of rosemary essential oil, three drops of peppermint essential oil, 1 cup of sea salt and one cup of baking soda to a hot bath. Soak for at least 15 minutes with the shower curtains closed to hold the healing vapors inside the tub. Finish the bath treatment with a semi-cold shower to rejuvenate the body and energize the mind.
ALSO FEATURED:Susan Erasmus from health24. She join us to speak about an article in which she addressed ‘Women behind The Wheel’. This also sparked an idea of getting people’s response and opinions on female drivers and what a response! However Susan was probed to write an article about this right after the whole SAA (South African Airways) debacle in which an aeroplane got stuck in sand when it left the runway about two years ago. Everyone was chuckling at the fact that the pilot involved was a women, as if to say, that’s so typical of a women. Susan then look at the statistics of bad driving and it looked alot different i.e more car accidents are caused by males as well as road rage. I then spoke to Dr Craig Ress who joined us to speak about hair loss in males and females. To find out more visit www.medhair.co.za
