Olive Oil As Natural Health Remedies

I’m sure we have all heard about the wonderful benefits of olive oil. Well, this humble olive tree has lots of goodness for those who believe in natural health remedies.

Olive oil has always been a popular ingredient in organic skincare. Aside from being a flavorful food source, olive oil was a popular skin moisturizer and ointment for soothing dry skin and sunburns in the ancient times. Olive oil was also used as a skin highlighter, allowing the user to emphasize the curves and shapes of the body. In terms of actual health benefits, the consumption of olive oil has been shown to stimulate bone growth and calcium absorption. Tests show that the oil helps prevent cancer, diabetes, and skin aging. Studies also show that the consumption of olive oil results in favorable effects on cholesterol regulation and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol oxidation.

For the believers of natural health remedies, olive is also known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic, and anti-hypertensive properties. Since olive oil is rich in antioxidants, it is speculated that its use may help counteract the effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Studies in Japan have also proven that the antioxidants in olive oil helps in neutralizing free radical damage. While I was shopping for some big and tall clothing for my DH the other day, I picked up a brochure that talked about the wonderful healing benefits of olive leaf extracts. It is said that the extracts can help arthritic pain and other skin problems such as psoriasis.

Aside from its proven effects as a beauty product, olive oil can also be massaged onto the cuticles to restore nail strength and resiliency to the nail bed.

Natural Remedies for Joint Pain

After coming back from my vacation last week, I have been experiencing some joint pain on my fingers. Being a believer of natural remedies, I started to take some natural supplements for joint pain including glucosamine chondroitin and MSM.

Having pain in any part of the body isn’t fun at all. Being an active person, I don’t like to experience such discomforts that will hamper my movements or activities. My mom has been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and I have seen how she suffered. Thus, I told myself to start getting treatment before it’s too late! I know that some people don’t believe in supplements but it’s always good to open up one’s mind. Natural remedies for joint pain are aplenty from traditional chinese medicine to ayurveda. In one significant study, Indian researchers gave three to seven grams of ginger a day to 28 people with rheumatoid arthritis. More than 75 percent of those participating in the study reported at least some relief from pain and swelling. I also read that Boswellia, has been investigated for its effects on arthritis. The herb has a unique anti-inflammatory action, and acts much like the conventional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). People are advised to take 400-800 mg of extract in capsules or tablets three times per day.

You can search for more natural remedies for joint pain online these days but it’s often good to read up reviews before trying out any. From best fat burner to joint pain treatments, I find that the internet is a great resource stop for health remedies.
