LITERALLY talking, the climate has been beneath the climate for about one or two weeks in lots of elements of Nigeria.
Rainfall has gone on a brief vacation, giving strategy to mild, chilly wind in some locations earlier than the seasonal AUGUST break. In Southwestern Nigeria, that is the season senior residents are mentioned to depart the flesh in giant numbers.
So, it’s the time younger ones pay severe consideration to the aged. Don’t be shocked if you happen to discover extra girls tie scarves which cowl their ears.
It’s their very own manner of protecting out the chilly. As I write, about mid-night this Sunday (July 19, 2020), Higher Effiong, the 13-year-old orphan woman I’m a guardian to, went to mattress sporting socks and two robes.
As well as, she wrapped herself with a blanket in such a way you’d assume she is an Eyptian Mummie!
Surprisingly, she carries an additional padding of fats throughout her which ought to burn to maintain her heat in opposition to the chilly. It’s potential she has way more white fats cells than the brown.
The white doesn’t burn nicely and quick, even beneath stimulation from fats burning herbs. That is most likely a cause some fats individuals don’t “come down”, regardless of efforts to shed extra fats load.
However, brown fats cells burns quick and nicely on their very own, even with out stimulation or provocation. Which means they burn to launch power even when you don’t ask them to, by the usage of herbs.
Individuals who have quite a lot of them are often slim or skinny, and are heat or sizzling nearly all day. In lately of coronavirus overstatements, they could be mistaken for coronavirus contaminated individuals.
However they is probably not, and infrequently outlive the fats. Such individuals could eat the world with none proof of it of their physique mass!
On this chilly season, there’s a tendency to eat extra. I’ve discovered myself rounding off on three sq. meals, besides on days I undertake natural espresso enemas to scrub up the liver and the digestive tract, and I intentionally spike breakfast to offer myself a break from meals.
The explanation for the “greed” stands out as the want for extra power from meals to maintain the physique heat.
Crimson sizzling Pepper
There’s something I don’t toy with throughout chilly season, similar to this and the harmattan, which follows the winding down of rainfall. It’s RED HOT PEPPER.
In my flower beds, I develop a few of them. I’ll sound weird if I say I decide some contemporary, wash them in saline or Vinegar water and cube them straight into corn pap.
My favorite amongst them is CAYENNE or Cameroun pepper. The place I should not have ripened cayenne, I exploit the proprietary mix which may provide me 100,000 warmth items per capsule.
This seems even hotter and extra warming than the vine-ripened cayenne. I desire corn pap for dinner, on a cautionary word.
It’s mild and may digest simply. However I recognise it’s a easy carbohydrate with a excessive glycemic index as a result of it has misplaced a lot of its fiber from the way in which we course of the corn in Nigeria.
I do know it might spike blood sugar within the morning because the sugar is packed up within the blood all night time whereas all bodily actions to burn it up are at low ebb.
So, what preventive measures do I take? I add some sugar burners which, by the way, are fiber endowed. My favorite is ORANGE PEEL POWDER, which comes from the inexperienced peel of the orange.
This citrus peel is a pal of diabetics. It cuts excessive blood levels of cholesterol as nicely, tackles hypertension, histamine associated illnesses, similar to cough and bronchial asthma and is a robust pure anti-histamine.
As well as, I’ll complement orange peel with INDIAN GOOSEBERRY. One other title for it’s AMALAKI or AMLA.
This powder is sweet for a lot of functions, together with the decreasing of intra-ocular strain in glaucoma. It has Vitamin A for clear imaginative and prescient and immune boosting, and different functions.
Whereas Cayenne helps to maintain the physique heat in opposition to the chilly night time, CBD capsules assist me cruise over the day-time chilly climate.
I observed the consequences of a 200gm capsule in about six hours, warming and energising the physique, calming the nerves and steadying mind efficiency.
I counsel it’s tried together with Magnesium and Gotu Kola by individuals who have consideration deficit or who’re hyperactive.
That is one other fantastic energiser. It’s the extra bio-active model of Co- enzyme Q10(CoQ10). Each human cell incorporates ubiquinol.
Inside each cell, there are “power factories” referred to as mitochondria. It’s contained in the mitochondria that power is produced.
The extra the mitochondria in a cell, the extra its power output.
The variety of mitochondria is said to the quantum of ubiquinol within the cell. Thus, the power output of the cell relies upon considerably on the worth of ubiquinol within the cell.
The guts has the most important stockpile of ubiquinol within the physique for good cause. It really works continuous from the womb to bodily dying and requires a considerable amount of power to carry out its tasking job.
Many coronary heart ailments have been linked to a deficiency of ubiquinol. Accordingly, it’s advisable to complement the food plan of previous or sick and weak individuals with obiquinol.
Dr. Carl Folkers, the daddy of CoQ10 analysis, carried out a land mark experiment through which giant dosage of CoQ10, which was believed to be the one dietary issue that helped a majority of terminally ailing breast most cancers sufferers to energise their breasts and nutritionally treatment their cancers.
Chilly legs & toes
When you watch previous individuals at the moment, they aren’t solely sporting cardigans or sweaters however socks as nicely. They’re particularly chilly within the legs and toes.
This can be as a result of the tiny blood capillaries which convey circulation to the floor space have collapsed or had develop into blocked by all method of gear which don’t dissolve within the blood stream.
Cayenne and different peppers could assist breakdown these limitations to blood circulate and quicken the heartbeat.
Nutritional vitamins B6, B12 and Folic acid can even assist if the blockage is from HOMOCYSTEINE, a greasy byproduct of the metabolism of an necessary amino acid.
We are inclined to urinate extra this season. It is because the chilly environment causes the physique to constrict, fairly than increase blood vessels close to the pores and skin.
Their growth brings extra blood to the pores and skin floor, in order that some warmth could be misplaced by perspiration. Perspiration or sweating takes away some toxins as nicely.
Within the constriction of the blood vessels, warmth is conserved, there may be much less perspiration and the kidneys are referred to as upon to get rid of extra waste by urination which turns into extra frequent.
Males who’re challenged with the prostate gland mustn’t let be lured to sleep by this understanding of how the physique responds to chilly climate.
They need to see their docs and run exams, in the event that they expertise urine dribbling, scanty circulate or retention.
Because the kidneys are inclined to work extra in a season similar to this, they need to be given all of the help they should forestall overworking them and to guard in opposition to the toxins they’re to filter out of the blood stream.
So, you will need to drink extra water. I monitor my want for water not solely by the mechanism of the dry mouth warning system.
And that’s as a result of in some individuals, this mechanism not works or works sub-optimally. Slightly, I hold a marked white desk glass within the lavatory and catch my urine in it.
Each member of the family is knowledgeable in regards to the mark in order that they don’t at some point mistakenly combine it up with glasses for consuming water.
The physique speaks to us their homeowners in varied methods – by the color, weight, quantity and the urine. Watch your urine fastidiously.
If it bubbles and the bubbles break up so quickly after you end, there could also be no hassle developing. But when there may be foam, which lingers on, the kidneys could have some hassle and be unable to maintain a sure protein the blood stream.
Laboratory exams could decide that it’s this protein within the urine, fairly than within the blood stream that’s inflicting the froth. In different instances the froth could also be trigger by an infection.
If the color is deep, the kidneys could also be heading for hassle and extra water consumption could assist them. Deep color signifies a focus of waste and toxins, none the least of which is urea usually downgrades to uric acid in urine.
It could nicely occur generally that the enzyme, URICASE, which is required to do that just isn’t doing the job nicely for no matter cause, together with an insufficiency of it.
It could even be as a result of the kidneys are getting weaker and passing out, or as a result of there’s a want for dilution by extra water consumption.
When half a glass of urine is heavier within the hand than a full glass, it might be time to see the Urologist. Generally, ants could go to the urine within the glass.
This will likely inform us blood sugar is rising and that it’s time to add sugar burners similar to orange peel, Chanka piedra or Karela, amongst others, to the food plan.
Generally, pure salt, similar to sodium, accumulates on the backside of the glass. This can be an excellent or dangerous occasion. If we’ve got been on a food plan overloaded with potassium, sodium will probably be flushed out of the physique.
This can be a foul occasion if sodium ranges within the blood fall too low as a result of salt is required for nerve motion and different features.
Low ranges of sodium could disturb the sodium-potassium pump, which drives vitamins into the cells and pumps waste and poison out of them.
A deficiency of sodium can also be why some individuals should not have restful night time sleep as a result of the nerves are usually not calm.
Dr. F. Batmanghelidy received round insomnia with a few of his sufferers by encouraging them to drink some water after which rub a pinch of desk salt on their tongues (lately, sea salt or full salt is in vogue).
On this season, as at all times, we are able to take pleasure in our kidneys extra if we help them with herbs. They’re the filters of our blood, to rid us of poisons.
If we repeatedly clear the gas filters of our motor autos to guard the engine from undesirable supplies, what about our our bodies which needs to be extra useful to us?
Mom Nature offers us many kidney cleaning herbs. Maize is in season now. Its filaments, additionally referred to as CORN SILK, are good for even urinary tract infections (UTIs),when they’re dry.
Within the moist type, they could purgative. Dandelion, an excellent pure diuretic, is helpful for the liver as nicely.
The great thing about this herb is that, not like chemical-infused diuretics, which leach potassium from the physique, inflicting potassium deficiency signs similar to lethargy, sore muscular tissues, uterine fibroids, most cancers and different growths, dandelion leaves and root convey Potassium into the physique.
Marsh Mallow Root
Marsh mallow root is a demulcent. It’s soothing. It stimulates the mucus membrane lining. That’s the reason it’s helpful in ulcers.
However asthamtic ought to used it beneath the supervision of a healthcare supplier as a result of it might probably spur extra mucus manufacturing than it saves within the air pipes.
Ginger is anti-inflammatory and is effective the place irritation induces such tendencies. So are cucumin, CBD oil or capsule and Jobelyn.
Many pure care givers add herbs, similar to onion and garlic, turmeric, golden rod, Juniper and cranberry. Everybody acquainted with the ALOE BERRY NECTAR of Ceaselessly Residing Merchandise (FLP) would simply respect cranberry for its conquering powers over urinary tract an infection (UTIs). Aloe vera is one other plant we should always not miss.
When the kidneys are weak and fluid begins to build up all around the physique as in dropsy, the RED KIDNEY BEAN POD could also be an excellent selection.
Sadly, this bean is not broadly cultivated in Nigeria, and proprietary formulation or blends of it are scarce within the nation at a time the variety of extreme kidney challenges is rising.
I can not overlook CILANTRO. That sounds esoteric. What if we name it by its different title, CORRIANDER? It was once a well-known vegetable in Yoruba delicacies.
Then, its native title was EBOLO ( r:d:d). At this time, the typical Yoruba girl is aware of little or nothing about it as a result of her mom by no means cooked it.
And he or she by no means did both, as a result of she discovered the scent and possibly the style, offensive. But it is a nice kidney and urinary tract cleanser and healer.
We now must import the powder, capsule and even tinctures, when we’ve got extra land than we have to develop it.
Can we overlook ASPARAGUS as nicely?
No, we can not. It has been used with nice impact within the remedy of most cancers within the urological system. Many of those herbs are warehoused in proprietary formulation similar to Bell Way of life’s KIDNEY CLEANSE and FUNCTION TEA.
As I said earlier, I mix Cayenne and CBD capsules to offset the chilly climate. Cayenne stimulates metabolism and thermogenesis. Capsaicin, its lively ingredient, blocks expressions of ache by the nervous system, muscular tissues and joints.
By inducing thermogenesis and fats burning, Cayenne could also be a weight supervisor. By straightening up the nervous system, it might probably cut back or cease itching. Irritation could retreat earlier than cayenne as a result of it’s anti-inflammatory. That needs to be excellent news for asthmatics and ache victims.
Chilly and congestion can not stand earlier than warmth any greater than ice within the solar. One capsules of standardised capsaicin in cayenne capsule ought to produce about 100,000 warmth items, nearly sufficient to maintain the blood flowing freely for at some point.
The generated warmth breaks down coagulations in crimson blood cells. Cayenne might be in a position to obtain these and different objectives as a result of it’s a powerhouse of antioxidants, which embody… Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Beta carotene, Choline (an necessary nerve nutrient), Zeazanthin and Cryptoxanthin.
Lastly, I see a relationship between this season of chilly and a bumper harvest of peppers in farms and within the supply to the meals markets.
Isn’t Mom Nature fantastic? And for Higher Effiong who wakened this Monday morning July 20, 2020 as I conclude this text, asking me why the climate is so chilly when we aren’t within the harmattan season, I replied: ONE CAYENNE CAPSULE OR RAW PEPPER EVERY DAY KEEPS THE COLD AT BAY.
