A Cheerful Heart Is Good Medicine

I love the wisdom of the bible. In Proverbs 17:22 it states: "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." I love when science, biblical wisdom, and the power of positivity intersect and speak truth. A cheerful heart IS good medicine. Positive thinking, laughter, and a good attitude can help maintain good health and aid in the fight against illness. Research suggests what many people already know. Optimism helps when facing disease or surgery. A positive outlook has a big impact on health and longevity. (1) Optimism is linked to better heart health, blood pressure , and overall health.

Balsam Copaiba an Excellent Essential Oil for Aches and Fighting Germs

One of my favorite essential oils to add to salves and creams for aches is Balsam copaiba (Copaifera officinalis). This essential oil is rich in β-Caryophyllene. Research suggests that this aromatic compound is analgesic (pain relieving) (1, 2) , anti-inflammatory (2,3), neuroprotective (1,4), and antispasmodic (5) or relaxing. In addition Balsam copaiba appears to thwart germs(6,7), support the immune and cardiovascular system (8,9). So how to use? In general a low dilution is used for kids, elderly, and for skin care. A 2% dilution is great for massage, everyday use, or when more fragrance is desired. A dilution of 3% and beyond is used for aches and therapeutic issues. What does dilution

Quality sleep is vital for good health but elusive for many. And there are a variety of reasons why we find it tough to get the sleep we need.
