HO SHO WHU

HE SHOU WU (also known as fo-ti, ho shou wu, he shou wu, flowery knotweed, and fleeceflower) is used in Traditional Chinese medicine. Its name literally means Mr. Ho’s hair is black (shou = head, wu = black). The name is based on a story about a 58-year-old gentleman named Ho, whose gray hair turned black again after taking the herb. He also become more youthful and was able to father several children. Legends says he was able to live to 160, retaining his black hair. There are numerous variations of this story, but all center on the fact that the herb not only restored normal hair color, it restored vitality, strength and sexual vigor.

Many clinical studies have been conducted to study the medicinal properties. After extensive research, the studies conclude that HE SHOU WU is beneficial to boost the immune system. Also improves blood circulation and results in an increased libido. It is an anti-oxidant and gets rid of free radicals in the body. Ho Sho Whu fortifies the vital organs such as the kidneys and the blood. The organs then cleanse the blood of its impurities and ultimately help the body to get rid of toxic substances.

HE SHOU WU has a high content of Iron. It is also rich in zinc. It boosts the immune system and increases the energy levels of the body. A Chinese man named Li Cheng Yuen lived 256 years through the consumption of various Chinese herbs including Ho Sho Whu. Though HE SHOU WU increases the energy levels of the body, but is not a stimulant. It is slightly sedative and is said to have a calming effect on the nervous system of the body.

HE SHOU WU roots are a red-brownish in color and have an astringent, bitter and slightly starchy taste. The roots can be dried or processed with black soybean juice. If the root is left unprocessed it is used to treat inflammation, toxicosis, hyperlipidemia and constipation. If it is processed in the soybean juice, it is used to treat the blood, muscles, bones, gray hair, weakness,, and numbness, among other ailments.

TRY THIS DELICOUS DRINK!

 

One of the most common ways that HE SHOU WU is used is in tea. To make the tea, take ten grams (.35 oz) of the dried root and simmer it in a pot of water for about 40 minutes. The tea can be consumed or applied topically to treat a variety of ailments or to promote longevity. Some people gargle with the tea to treat inflamed gums or teeth that are loose.

HE SHOU WU is adaptogenic. This means that it adapts to the needs of the human body. If there is any imbalance in the body, then HE SHOU WUworks to sort out the imbalance and brings the body back to the ‘normal’ or the ‘ideal’ state. Studies show the herb has almost ninety percent success in reduction of grey hair and improving the quality of hair. As such, no serious side effects of Ho Shu Whu have been noticed – but still it is better to consult your general physician before the consumption of any herbal medicine including HE SHOU WU.

These days, one of the most important things we can do as a whole is to universally come together.

To build bridges with one another, we must learn to activate our true being and our consciousness as a whole. The truth is that this can definitely be a possibility but many of us simply do not know how to go about doing this. Thankfully, there is an answer and it is in the form of Chaga Mushroom. Chaga Mushroom allows amazing things to happen in the body since it activates what is referred to as The Third Eye. The Third Eye, also known as The Pineal Gland is defined as the seat of the soul, it has been known to be a remarkable tool we can all use to reach higher conscious levels and true ideals of spirituality.

The reality is that we are all human beings and we are all living in this world together, so now, more than ever before, it is vital for us a whole to come together peacefully and in a way that nourishes both our minds, bodies, as well as our spirits. Chaga Mushroom is known to strengthen the pineal gland due to its high levels of dense nutritional components. It is truly revolutionary in the way that it works to universally bring people together through pineal gland health and consciousness. It has been shown that the more people who become aware of their true consciousness as a whole, the more universally bridging the world becomes. That is why Chaga Mushroom has been specifically helpful towards people in general, but especially in regards to seniors. When seniors consume Chaga Mushroom, it has been shown that they immediately can sense their pineal gland becoming activated. Chaga Mushroom was even recognized from the Siberians to be the Gift from God, and the Japanese refer to it as The Diamond of the Forest, according to www.decalifypinealgland.com. At the end of the day, for seniors to truly come together in a peaceful fashion, strengthening their pineal glands is the way to go, and there is no better way for them to go about doing this than by the simple consumption of Chaga Mushroom.

“Poor health is not caused by something you don’t have; it’s caused by disturbing something that you already have. Healthy is not something that you need to get, it’s something you have already if you don’t disturb it.” -Dean Ornish

To All those in need,

Healthy Living with Conscious Eating

“Cancer is a passport to intimacy. It is an invitation to enter the most vital arenas of human life. To experience the most sensitive and most frightening emotions, the ones we never want to experience. When we do go there though, we feel transformed.”

This is what Bruce Feiler said in his TED talk in January 2011 at The Council of Dads. This talk was given after he was diagnosed with cancer and he worried about his family. He asked his friends to bring their wisdom to help his daughters as they grew up.

With cancer, your health needs a boost to help it fight the tumors. By developing lifestyle complete with conscious eating, you will discover that you will live healthy. Conscious eating brings your mind, body, and spirit into unison. This is done by focusing on a plant-based diet and using natural herbs to help cleanse the body. This will promote better health, but it will also slow the growth of diabetes, cancer, and other life threatening diseases.

Focus on the food that will bring nutrients to your body. Vegetation comes in a variety of colors, and the more colors you select for your palate, the more nutrients you are receiving. Consider where the food comes from, and minimize the amount of meat you consume. Your carbon footprint will be reduced, and you will boost your spirituality because you are eating based on your values.

Clean eating will teach you how to marry food through the selection process, preparation, and presentation. It is possible to touch each of the chakras through consumption of fruits and vegetables. The food cleans out your system and balances your body’s ph. It is a simple and natural way to detox your body. When you do not put toxins in, your body will flush the old toxins out.

Adding ginger to your food or tea will help reduce sour stomach, eliminating the need for Tums or Pepto. Raspberries, tomatoes, carrots, and other berries are loaded with antioxidants that help boost your immunity. The more you tend to your health by allowing your diet to do their work, the less medication you will have to worry about with their side effects.
