July 14th – The Sweet benefits of Astringent Herbs--Pucker Power for health.
Watery eyes and runny noses are indications that you could use this class! Astringents help to tighten and tone tissues that are swollen and painful. The mucus in the body is trying to deal with the fluids that have become acidic. Astringents also form a protective barrier to the skin (inside and outside the body) so with them we can apply topically for bleeding gums; hemorrhoids and varicose veins to strengthen and support. Another area is leaky gut. The pores of the gut have become spongy and lack tone. Astringent herbs can arrest diarrhea and inhibit bleeding in the digestive, respiratory and urinary systems. This class will be invaluable for those having concerns with incontinence and sinus drainage.

Your spine encases the spinal cord which is the main branch of nerves that comes directly from the brain. When you have a backache or having injured your spine in some way, your nerves are affected. The signals that tell other body parts to function may be lost and function may be hampered. Not only is there pain but there is loss of ability. If you have a headache it is difficult to think. 80 percent of the population will experience back pain. The older one gets, the more likely structural imbalances will occur. Getting regular chiropractic treatment helps to keep the spine flexible and easier to handle the stress we put on it. I will also give you tips during this class on other things you can do to support your spine better.

The Earth's Cure--Mineral deficiencies may be the root cause of your health concerns. Minerals are needed for healthy bones and teeth, but that's just the beginning. We obtain minerals from the food we eat. If any element is missing from the soil, then it will be missing from the foods we eat and as a result, we will not be properly nourished. Unfortunately, our commercial methods of agriculture are not only depleting the soil of precious trace minerals, they are also destroying the ability of plants to be able to utilize those elements. Hence, our food is deficient in minerals right from the start. If you would like the pdf handouts of this class, please email: Mary@BornForHealth.com Recorded audio class
