Relieve Hot Flashes and Night Sweats with Sage and Raspberry Leaf Tea

This is a simple tea for hot flashes and night sweats that contains sage and raspberry leaves. It is not known why sage leaves reduce sweating, perhaps due to its astringent properties. (An astringent is something that causes body tissues to tighten or shrink). Raspberry leaves are traditionally used to balance female hormones. Prepare this tea fresh before drinking.

1/2 tbsp fresh sage leaves (if you use dry leaves, use half the amount)
1/2 tbsp fresh raspberry leaves (if you use dry leaves, use half the amount)
8 ounces freshly boiled water
Stevia/honey/maple syrup to taste

Wash the sage and raspberry leaves, pour the boiled water over and steep for 8-10 minutes. Sip a small glass every 3 hours.

Best Foods for Building Strong Bones

Greetings to you,

I’ve included an interesting chart below with the healthiest foods for building good bones.  Nuts, seeds and selected green vegetables are high in calcium and magnesium, which are known to strengthen bones.  Foods rich in vitamin D are also beneficial.

For vitamin D, spend a bit of time outside in the sunshine and also eat fish like tuna, mackerel and salmon.

To your good health,

Magnesium intake reduces permanent hearing loss induced by noise exposure

From the American Journal of Otolaryngology (Diseases of the Ear and Throat)

Introduction: Following animal experiments where correlations were observed between blood magnesium level and noise-induced permanent hearing threshold shifts, we tested the prophylactic (disease preventing) effect of magnesium in human subjects exposed to hazardous noise.

Methods: Subjects were 300 young, healthy, and normal-hearing recruits who underwent 2 months of basic military training. This training necessarily included repeated exposures to high levels of impulse noises while using ear plugs. During this placebo-controlled study, each subject received daily an additional drink containing either 167 mg magnesium aspartate or a similar quantity of placebo.

Results: Noise induced hearing damage was significantly more frequent and more severe in the placebo group than in the magnesium group, and was correlated to the magnesium content of red blood cells. Long-term intake of a small dose of oral magnesium was not accompanied by any notable side effect.

Concluslon: This study may introduce a significant natural agent for the reduction of hearing damages in a noise-exposed population.

Study shows garlic could protect against hip osteoarthritis

Researchers at King’s College London and the University of East Anglia have discovered that women who consume a diet high in vegetables such as garlic, onions and leeks, have lower levels of hip osteoarthritis.  These vegetables are high in sulfur.

The findings, published in the Musculoskeletal Disorders journal, not only highlight the possible effects of diet in protecting against osteoarthritis, but also show the potential for using compounds found in garlic to develop treatments for the condition.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in adults, and women are more likely to develop it than men. It causes pain and disability by affecting the hip, knees and spine in the middle-aged and elderly population. Currently there is no effective treatment other than pain relief and, ultimately, joint replacement.

The study, funded by Arthritis Research UK, the Wellcome Trust and Dunhill Medical Trust, looked at over 1,000 healthy female twins, many of whom had no symptoms of arthritis.

The team carried out a detailed assessment of the diet patterns of the twins and analyzed these alongside x-ray images, which captured the extent of early osteoarthritis in the participants’ hips, knees and spine.

They found that in those who consumed a healthy diet with a high intake of fruit and vegetables, particularly high-sulfur ones such as garlic, there was less evidence of early osteoarthritis in the hip joint.

They also found that that a certain compound in garlic limits the amount of cartilage-damaging enzymes when introduced to a human cartilage cell-line in the laboratory.

Dr Frances Williams, lead author from the Department of Twin Research at King’s College London, says: “While we don’t yet know if eating garlic will lead to high levels of this component in the joint, these findings may point the way towards future treatments and prevention of hip osteoarthritis.”
