Best Hair Product Ever!

castor oilI got this bottle of Castor Oil from Ramone Reid …her brand is Cultured Naturals. It blew my mind how amazing my hair feels since I have been using it. I am all over this product! Im so mad Im just finding out how amazing Castor Oil is for my hair. I highly recommend it. Nothing else can top what this is doing to my scalp and hair in general. And upon further investigation…Castor Oil is an amazing treatment for so many other things. I have been slathering it all over my body, my feet…the only thing I did was add itiba, LLC Midnite Rain Hair and Body Serum after I did my hair…mostly for the scent. Castor oil’s scent is plain but it reminds me of when I uses to take 4 huge tablespoons everytime I went into labor (yikes!)…which is yet another remedy for laboring women…its helps to promote contractions in natural birthing mommies. And one more thing, its growing wild all over our Puerto Rico Farm….YAY!! Oh yeah…one more thing…they are both St Croix US Virgin Islands products…Black Women in Business!! Yahoo!

Why women are giving up tampons

Why Some Women Are Giving Up Tampons For Good

By Anna Almendrala annaa@huffingtonpost.com

MENSTRUAL CUP

Maryann Flasch, a 32-year-old office manager from Austin, Colorado, used to suffer from vaginal itching, dryness and infections when she got her period, which she attributed to using tampons and pads. She had resigned herself to buying tube after tube of topical painkillers — until she discovered the menstrual cup.

“I suffered for years with the side effects of using tampons/pads because I didn’t know there was another option,” Flasch wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. “Not only do [menstrual cups] reduce garbage and mess, but they are a lifesaver for women that find tampons and pads to be highly irritating.”

Sara Austin, a 25-year-old occupational therapist from Gainesville, Florida, also says that cups are easier to use than tampons and pads. She cited relief from vaginal dryness — as well as a more pleasant olfactory experience.

“Tampons/pads tend to cause an unpleasant odor after a while, and I have yet to experience that with my menstrual cup,” Austin wrote in an email to HuffPost.

While most women in the U.S. and Europe use sanitary pads or tampons when they’re on their period, a small but vocal minority of women are sounding a cri de coeur for their beloved menstrual cups.

For the uninitiated, menstrual cups are goblet-shaped receptacles made out of non-toxic, non-absorbent and flexible materials such as silicone. They are inserted in the vagina to collect period blood. Cups can be reused for up to 10 years, and at around $30 to $40 apiece, they’re more affordable and eco-friendly than cotton or syntheticsingle-use products.

Beth Croft, a 38-year-old photographer and yoga teacher who splits her time between London and San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, says she loves her menstrual cup because it can be left in place for up to 12 hours at a time, which is especially helpful when she visits places where access to public restrooms can be dicey. Croft began using a menstrual cup eight years ago, when she traveled around India for a month. After her trip, she continued to use it and says that the cup’s environmental impact (or rather, lack thereof) is one of the biggest arguments for using one.

“Being very eco-conscious, I had always been bothered by the amount of sanitary products that must be used throughout the world, so it really felt like a revelation,” Croft wrote in an email to HuffPost. “It took a little getting used to, but it is without a doubt one of the best inventions, and I have since encouraged many family and friends to make the switch.”

The device also improves the lives of women in developing countries. In a recent HuffPost blog post, international women’s rights advocate Sabrina Rubli described how the silicone receptacle is helping poor girls in East Africa and elsewhere deal with their periods. Without menstrual cups, they often have to resort to using newspapers, rags, leaves and even mud to absorb the blood, which puts them at risk of infection and makes attending school difficult, if not impossible.

Menstrual cups come with other benefits as well. Some women say they help relieve cramping. Kelly Bailey from Newport, Rhode Island, experienced extremely painful cramps before she bought her Diva Cup.

“I used to have terrible, terrible cramps,” Bailey told HuffPost. “The first time I used a menstrual cup, the cramps were much less severe … I felt so much better.”

Others ditch tampons over concerns about toxic shock syndrome, a rare but serious disease that can occur when the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus become concentrated in the body and that has in the past been linked to tampons.

Because they are made of materials like silicone and create airtight seals inside the vagina, menstrual cups don’t encourage bacterial growth, says Dr. Philip M. Tierno Jr., a microbiology professor at New York University and author of the book The Secret Life of Germs.

Tampons are no longer made with the synthetic fibers that were thought to increase the risk of TSS, and tampon safety is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. In fact, the risk of contracting TSS is so small these days that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention no longer even tracks it. But for some women, peace of mind can be an important motivator: Janaye Murphy, a 29-year-old doula from San Francisco, says she loves her cup because she can leave it in longer than a tampon “without worrying about TSS.”

While menstrual cups have clear benefits, not everyone’s a fan. Some women who try them out never manage to adjust to them. Rev. Kimberly-Ann Talbert, 60, of Los Angeles, tried the Tassaway, a type of menstrual cup that is no longer manufactured. She says she found the cup “difficult to insert and a bit uncomfortable.”

“Taking them out was difficult as they were apt to spill their contents, making for a mess,” Talbert said. She’s sticking with pads for now.

She’s not the only woman who admitted to experiencing a few leaks before learning how to insert and remove a menstrual cup properly. When it’s time to empty a cup, a woman pours the collected blood into the toilet, washes the cup in the sink with warm soapy water, and then reinserts it into her vagina. If she happens to be somewhere where she can’t wash the cup, she can just empty it out, wipe it off with some toilet paper and then reinsert. The process is more hands-on than learning how to use a tampon or pad, and because cups collect — not absorb — blood, spills and leaks can be somewhat dramatic.

That airtight seal Tierno mentioned can also get users in trouble: In a single-patient case published in the International Journal of STD & AIDS, a researcher writes about a 20-year-old patient whose Mooncup was stuck so far up her vagina that even the doctor had trouble prying it away.

But most of the research comparing cups to other menstrual products find that women either like them as much as tampons and pads or prefer them over other options.

5 Critical Keys to Kill Your Cellulite

5 Critical Keys to Kill Your Cellulite

One of our contributing experts recently put together a kick-butt article that is the “Do This – and DON’T Do That” rule-book when it comes to getting rid of unsightly cellulite dimples, shadows and ripples. It’s a quick read with some eye-opening tips and a helpful video that you’ll want to see while it’s still up.
———————————————————————————————————————-

“Ask any woman on the street what the definition of “cellulite” is and you’ll get a confused variety of answers. From “toxic fat pockets caught in the skin” to “bands of fiber pulling down on the skin” and many odd things in between…”

no more cellulite orange bikini

The truth is: most people really don’t know what “cellulite” actually is, or, what causes this odd appearance of the lower body trouble zones…”

This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite’… So how do we get rid of something which doesn’t exist?”

Here’s the answer:

“The word, “cellulite”, was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy, shadowy and dimpled appearance of skin in the lower body trouble zones of the female body. (butt, hips, thighs, legs)”

The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing “beauty” services and products to get rid of “cellulite”. And if you’re like most women who’ve been challenged by this issue, then you probably already know all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not get rid of the dented shadows and mushy dimples on your buns, legs and thighs.”

In order to make your lower-body smooth, tight and attractive, there are 5 steps to follow.

Here they are:

5 Critical Keys to KILL Your Cellulite

1: You cannot get rid of the dimples and shadows (cellulite) by rubbing an odd gel, weird lotion or goopy cream on your trouble zones and problem spots.

So, stop using them – as some can actually make your cellulite worse.

Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed ‘cellulite reduction creams’ on the market, there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite. Cellulite is not a skin problem. Its an underlying structural issue, that can only be corrected by reversing the cause of atrophied muscle fibers directly beneath your “cellulite” trouble spots.”

Since the squishy dimples and shadows are a superficial symptom of a problem below the surface; it’s impossible for the creams, lotions or gels to have any physiological impact on the cause of the issue…”

2: Risky and expensive ‘medi-spa treatments’ can only reduce your bank account – not your cellulite problems. And there are many consumer reports about women being seriously scarred or injured as well.

Stay away from these as the FDA reports show women who’ve been scarred or injured for life.

Painful, dangerous and uncomfortable services ranging from endermologie to body-wrapping have been proven to be totally ineffective when it comes to treating cellulite. However, advertising and marketing loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to desperate women who are at wits end with the unattractive dimples and shadows on the lower-body problem areas.”

3: The unattractive dimples, shadows and saggy ripples known as cellulite are not ‘genetic’ and you are NOT stuck with them forever if you have them.

Falsely believing this will prevent you from getting rid of your cellulite. So, don’t entertain this nonsense for 1 second.

These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by ‘neighborhood know-it-alls’ – and many women actually believe these 2 myths – especially if they haven’t found the right way to get rid of the cellulite. Whats even more alarming are the number of doctors who also believe in and foster these 2 demoralizing falsehoods.

Yes – it is common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body “orange peel” look, BUT this doesn’t mean cellulite is genetic – it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone and firm the muscle layers under the dimpled, saggy skin.”

4: You can get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it.

Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) – it can be fixed with simple and unique body movements which target the cellulite areas.”

These types of moves can be followed by any woman, regardless of her age or fitness level. And it doesn’t matter if the cellulite started in the early teen years – or after pregnancy – or after menopause – it’s still a structural issue that results from soft, un-toned muscles underneath the saggy, dimpled, shadowy skin.”

5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of the dimples and shadows of cellulite is through a series of simple, yet specifically targeted lower-body movements

These unique movements focus on lifting, shaping and toning the muscle layers so they gently push outward against the skin – to bring back the smooth, tight and sexy appearance, while burning off any excess flab, if there is any.”

This is how regular women reverse the cause of cellulite dimples and shadows… AND, if there happens to be any excess fat in those zones – it will be burned off as fuel by the muscles. This bonus of losing any unhealthy excess body-fat is nice because it reveals a great body and it works wonders for your health profile.

BUT you won’t learn about these unique slow-tempo movements in the gym or your local health club.”

These body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises.” “Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method. (click to watch video)

These muscle-stimulating movements can be done right at home, in total privacy.

The female lower-body has over 90 muscles…

Picture those 90 muscles BENEATH your skin’s surface in your legs, butt, hips and thigh zones. That’s where the magic happens in regards to true removal of mushy dimples and saggy shadows in the trouble spots and problem areas…

Despite what most women have been led to believe, there is a critical difference between a ‘general workout program’ – and a laser-focused, cellulite removal method. The sweetest benefit of this is; you don’t need access to a health club or fitness center.” …”Just click PLAY on this video by Joey Atlas, (M.S., Ex.Phys.) and get it started now:” (it opens in a bigger screen so you don’t miss a thing)

These are simple, unique moves you can start doing today, right in the privacy of your own home. And if you start this type of targeted muscle stimulation method today – you will start feeling results within 2 weeks and seeing results within 3 to 4 weeks.

3 POWERFUL Ways To Profit From Your BLOG… Starting TODAY!
 
Cyberspace has a NEW marketing tool, even though they’ve been around for quite some time, yet, ONLY recently have been recognized as a Powerful communication tool for Internet marketers.
 
If you’ve been following the latest Internet marketing trends like I have, then you’ve definitely heard of them.
 
What’s this new marketing tool I’m talking about that every Serious marketer should have in place?
 
BLOGS! …(A.K.A. Web-Log).
 
Now, just for those of you who aren’t quite sure what a BLOG is, here’s a quick definition:
 
A BLOG(A.K.A. Web-Log) is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating(usually on a daily to weekly basis) a blog is called “Blogging” and someone who keeps a Blog is a “Blogger”.
 
There you have it, quick and to the point.
 
I’m going to list three ways that I think are the Best and most Powerful ways to get the most out of your Blog.
 
So, with that said, let’s go to Profit Tactic #1.
 
Profit Tactic #1. Writing “Articles”.
 
Writing “Articles” are a very Powerful way to profit from your Blog.
 
There are many reasons why “Articles” are valuable to your Blog, but, for the purpose of this email  I’m going to give you the most important part, and that’s your “Resource Box” at the end of your article.
 
Your “Resource Box” is like a classified ad and holds critical information about You, your websites and what you have to offer them after they’ve read your article.
 
The links within your “Resource Box” could lead to your own Product or Service you have to offer, or they could lead to a Affiliate Product related to the content of your article.
 
This is a great way to give them something of “Value”, which is the information within the article, and a great way to get them to take action by way of getting them to click on one of the links within your “Resource Box”.
 
That’s “Profit Tactic #1”.
 
Profit Tactic #2. Writing “Product Reviews”.
 
Writing “Product Reviews” is a great way to profit from your Blog simply because they allow you to Soft-Sell your potential customer by way of giving them your personal opinion on the product you are recommending and then providing them with a link if they wish to look into it further, instead of throwing a Sales Pitch at them.
 
Nobody likes to be sold, but, offering them your insight on a Product and/or Service that could help solve the problem they’re dealing with is yet another great way to profit from your Blog and make you look like a Hero.
 
That’s “Profit Tactic #2”.
 
Profit Tactic #3. “Text Ad” Programs.
 
“Text Ad Programs” like Affiliate Power Ads or Google Adsense are yet Another great way to profit from your Blog.
 
I’ve listed these two “Text Ad” programs for a reason, One is a Pay-Per-Click(Google Adsense) and shows related ads to the content on that particular webpage and the other one(Affiliate Power Ads) makes You up to $60 to $100 dollars in commissions on a single click.
 
Here are the links for you to check them out further if you wish.
 
Google Adsense —
 
Affiliate Power Ads —
 
They are both FREE to join and only take you minutes to set-up depending on your experience.
 
The great thing is… they’ll be displayed on every page of your Blog when you make a post.
 
I also provided a link below that shows you How-To set this up “Step-By-Step”, making it Easy for you to get started.
 
 
Now, I’m sure there are many other ways to $$Profit$$ from your Blog, but these ones in my mind are the most Powerful.
 
If you haven’t started a BLOG, maybe it’s time you considered it since NOW you have some incentive.
 
I truly hope this article helped you realize the $$Profit$$ potential your Blog could have and how you can start incorporating it… Starting TODAY!
 
 
Hope to hear from you soon!
 
Peace and Love

Miracle Cup: The Health Benefits of Green Tea


12a

How do you fit a miracle in a cup?

For 4,000 years, the Chinese people have been using green tea as treatment for everything from headaches to depression.

Today, studies are conducted in Asia and the west in order to produce hard evidence of the health benefits of green tea. In the 1994 edition of the Journal of National Cancer Institute, the results of an epidemiological study stated that one of the health benefits of drinking green tea is that it can reduce the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by up to 60%.

The rich presence of catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the reason why green tea has so much health benefits. A powerful antioxidant, EGCG can not only inhibit the growth of cancer cells but can also destroy them without harming healthy cells.

The University of Purdue has also concluded a research on how a certain compound present in green tea can stop cancer cells from growing. Still another health benefit of green tea is its ability to lower down cholesterol levels and improve the ratio between good (HDL) cholesterol and bad (LDL) cholesterol.

The EGCG in green tea is a health benefit substance that can lower down LDL cholesterol levels and stop blood from forming abnormal clots (thrombosis), a leading cause of heart attacks and strokes.

Green tea has more health benefits compared to other Chinese teas like oolong and black tea, all of which come from the plant Camellia sinensis. What makes green tea different is the process by which it is made. Green tea owes much of its health benefits to how the Camellia sinensis leaves are steamed. The steam process keeps the EGCG health benefit of green tea from oxidizing. With oolong and black teas, however, the leaves are fermented instead of being steamed, thus causing the EGCG health benefit to transform into another less medicinally potent form.

Aside from medicinal value, green tea can also offer other health benefits, especially in the fitness field. Drinking green tea can cause a person to burn down more calories. A recent study on the health benefits of green tea shows that the drink can help dieters. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 1999, men who take both caffeine and green tea burn down more calories than men who only take caffeine or a placebo.

Another health benefit of green tea is its bacteria-destroying properties. The health benefit of green tea in this area is that it can help prevent food poisoning and also prevent tooth decay. The substances found in green tea kill the bacteria causing food poisoning and those that cause dental plaque to form.

Well known for its countless medicinal and health benefits, green tea is nothing short of a miracle.
