Melatonin
 
Melatonin has many benefits:
  1. Its is a sleep aid 
  2. It in a potent antioxidant
  3. And resaerch shows it reduces stress.
 
Of significance, is that melatonin is produced in both the pineal gland to support sleep, and also IN THE SKIN, for many functions.
 
 
My hypotheses is that melatonin supplements helps reduce stress that is held in the skin.   Stress in teh skin can show up as hyper-anxiety, relationship stress, and skin disorders such as eczema.

From my experience, the natural forms of melatonin are better than the synthetic forms.

The Monmorency cherry variety, known as ‘tart cherry’,  is one of the highest natural food forms of melatonin available.

Calm your Skin

 

Coherence and Stress happens in the body in many ways.

One area that is poorly studied and promoted is the skin-brain mechanism.

This means that stress in your life shows up as both skin sensitivity and brain stress.

 

There are several solutions to calm your skin and calm your brain

Massage is a good one solution.

The other is to apply herbal infused ointments, lotions, balms and oils to your skin.

 

Aloe Vera

 

Aloe Vera is a good anti-inflammatory herb.

My favorite is herbal infused aloe vera.  A nice product is:

 

Burn Out Skin Fix.

See:

https://www.amazon.com/Burn-Aloe-Vera-Skin-Ounce/dp/B009WBJC6G

 

You can apply a thin layer of aloe vera across your entire skin.  For me it is calming and soothing. 

My brain and body feel more clear and coherent.

Antioxidants

 

Oxidative stress is process, when in excess, damages cell structures in your body.  The solution to excess oxidative stress is to detoxify using antioxidants and other methods.

There are many foods and nuitrients that are antioxidants.

Sear the internet for ‘Antioxidant Foods’ and you will find a plethora of information.

 

A few of my favorites are:

 

Glutathione: a master antioxidants.

 

Sublingual Glutathione

In this sublingual form it has a more direct impact upon the body.

Melatonin

Melatonin, often known as a sleep aid, is also one of the most powerful antioxidants.  From my experience, the natural forms of melatonin are better than the synthetic forms.

Oral Rehydration Solution

 

An Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) is a precise formula of glucose and sodium that has been scientifically tested to facilitate hydration. An ORS activates the Sodium-Glucose Transport Mechanism of the intestinal tract, helping the intestines to physically absorb more water. An ORS is more effective than plain water to rehydrate your body.

ORS is sold over-the-counter. You do not need a prescription for it.

Essential oils

 

Rosemary essential oil sublingual application:  link here

 

Application of oils:

You may be reactive to 100% essential oils applied directly on your skin.  Some people need to mix the pure essential oil with a ‘carrier’ medium, such as lotion, jojoba oil, sesame oil, etc before it is placed on the body. 

 

Test the 100% pure oil:

Apply a small amount of one essential  – a small dab –  on your skin.  Then wait for 30 minutes.   Is there skin irritation, reddening or itching?   If yes, mix the oil with a carrier medium.

 

Initial dose:

  • Start with 3 to 4 ‘dabs’ total over your entire body.
  • Wait 24 hours to determine your response.
  • If you feel comfortable with the dosage, you can repeat it if you want.
  • Small doeses of essential oil canbe used daily.
  • \You can increase the amont of essential oil over time.

Key points on body to place oils:

  • At the notch between the ear and the jaw.
  • Temples (avoid area close to corner of eyes)
  • Top/back of neck
  • Sternum
  • Inner wrists
  • On back at base of ribs next to spine (adrenal points)
  • Sacrum
  • Inner ankles
  • Navel

Tastes and Spices

 

Umami

 

Umami is the fifth taste, the taste that brings a feeling of satisfaction.

It is based upon the Glutamate receptor.

So eatting enough Glutamine food is important.

Glutamine is also essential to maintain a helthy stomach and intestinal lining.

 

Deficiency in Glutamate can cause a deficiency in the neurotransmittor GABA.. Gaba is a primary brain neurotransmittor to promote calm in the brain.  

 

See:  Umami Glutamate Food List and Resources

 

 

The Bitter Taste

 

Swedish Bitters

As a category of herb and taste, bitter foods stimlate digestion.

In Oriental, the bitter taste relates to the heart.   The bitter taste can soothe the heart.

 

Benefits of Swedish Bitters:

Non-alcoholic version.  There are two companies that make a non-alcoholic version.  Alcohol is typically used as a preservative.  Thus, the non-alcoholic version must be refrigerated.  I recommend the FLORA brand.

 

Available at iherbs.com or vitacost.com

 

I recommend Vitacost for delivery in the San Francisco Bay ARea.  They are closer.

Oil of Oregano 

Antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory

http://www.homeremediesweb.com/oil_of_oregano_health_benefits.php

http://www.newfoundationspubl.org/shepherdspurse/oregano.htm

 

Bitters come in many forms.  A salad of a mix of light and dark leafy greens are full of tasteful bitters.

 

Sour Taste:

 

The sour taste is a powerful stimulant to the entire body, especially supporting liver stimulation and general mental alertness. 

 

The most common food source of the sour taste are lemons and limes.   A higher nutritional value food are cranberries.

 

There are many simple ways to utilize this potent stimulant.  One is to put half a cup of cranberries in a cup and add hot water.  This creates a potent, soothing drink.  Suggested on an empty stomach to maximize the stimulation.

 

Spice Mixes for Healing

 

These spices can help calm the mind,  stiumulate digestion, calm deep stress.

1) Cardamom seed.   Buy the seed, not the whole pod.  Don’t buy the powder.  Small jar with seeds cost $7.   Pour seeds into mouth.  Saliva will soak them, then chew.  They are spicy and stimulating.  Deep grounding

 

2) Pumpkin pie spice mix: cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, clove.

Mix a few ounces of hemp seed with 1-2 teaqsoon of the spice mix.  Eat straight.  The goal is to get the specific taste to trigger your brain.

Or, add spice mixture to soup, oatmal, cooked grains, etc.  Get the taste!!

 

3) Ayurvedic Vata, Pitta, Kapha spice mixes.

These are the traditional three spices churnas of Ayurvedic medicine.

Mix a few ounces of hemp seed with 1-2 teaqsoon of the spice mix.  Eat straight.  The goal is to get the specific taste to trigger your brain.

Or, add spice mixture to soup, oatmal, cooked grains, etc.  Get the taste!!

You will mostly use the vata and pitta spice mixes.  The Kapha may also help, you’ll probably use less.

In the search bar, enter Vata churna, Pitta chura, kapha churna.

 

4) Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne is one of the oldest healing herbs in North America.

Search the internet and you’ll find a treasure of info.

Caution – it can be hot.

 

 

Acid/Alkaline: Bicarbonate salts

 

Alkala and Tri Salts

 

Both Alkala and Tri Salts are compounds of bicarbonate salts that reduce acidity in the body.

They are often used during periods of intestinal gas to reduce the acidic state and its consequences.

Take 1/8th teaspoon and place in your mouth.  Let it dissolve and absorb intoyour mouth.  After a couple minutes wither swallow or spit out.
