Benefits of Natural Medicine: Sea moss, Bladderwrack, Tumeric, Maca, and Chasteberry

Hello fam!

I've been making adjustments to my lifestyle so I can have a healthier life. One big thing that I do is utilize natural alternatives to my healthcare regimen. I take vitamins and use natural ways to regulate my hormones levels since I do have POCS. I know longer have cysts but I do have the other issues as in insulin resistance, over weight, and irregular hormone levels. Again I'm not a doctor so make sure you always consult with your doctor before doing anything. I'm just sharing some things I do that has helped me greatly!
I'm a texture person I just add this to my scrambled eggs. This does have a salty sea taste since it is from the ocean. I know people who purchase the actual algae and soak in hot water to drink as a tea. I purchased my sea moss gel from a legit herbal person who also can mix whatever other vitamins or herb in your batch.
Tumeric
When using this try to get organic in the powder form. My mom even used this for inflammation. When ingesting this make sure to add Black pepper to activate this. Basically, no use taking this if you don't add the Black pepper. The Black pepper allows our body to absorb the tumeric. I just sprinkle on food. It does stain so be careful.
I use these both to regulate my hormones and this stuff is golden! I do not have the issues I had with my POCS once I changed to taking these two together. I actual purchased these in liquid form recently and love it. However, you can purchase the maca in powder form and both in supplement form.

Japan's New Temporary Tattoos Detect A Common Food Allergy.
Food allergies are no joke. As many of you might know, being allergic to foods like nuts, eggs, and wheat flour can cause a range of extremely dangerous symptoms, ranging from itching and nausea to even painful swelling of the throat and airways. Japan has been taking a pretty impressive proactive stance for early allergy detection - and the method they've employed to get the job done might really surprise you! These 'ukiyo-e'-inspired temporary tattoos have been specially created to indicate whether or not the wearer is allergic to soba. Soba, a staple noodle popularly enjoyed in the country, is made from buckwheat, the top food-related allergen among children in East Asia - with the strongest reactions resulting in anaphylactic shock. If the wearer is not allergic, the tattoo will remain a black-and-white design. If the wearer has an allergy, sudden red detailing will appear. And, differently from a traditional allergy test, this indication does not result in burning or itching skin. The tattoos are currently being used by the 230 Soba Street Promotion Association, a Hokkaido-based group of soba noodle restaurateurs along the region's popular foodie destination, Route 230. They hope that this kind of technology will catch on and encourage similar products to be made for other common food allergies. Would you rock one of these tattoos? Let me know in the comments below what you think of this story, and for more strange but true developments in the name of science, follow my Weird Science collection!

Invisible Illness Awareness Week Spet. 28 - Oct. 4, 2015
A chronic condition is any condition or disease that either develops over the course of time or persists for at least 3 months. As a general rule, a chronic condition cannot be prevented or cured by medication. The symptoms of most chronic conditions can be treated, but these conditions also will not just fade away or disappear. An invisible illness is a chronic condition or disability that tends to be, well, invisible to everyone except the person suffering. To everyone else looking in, this person seems to be fine. They look healthy and, more likely than not, happy. They tend to wear the most careful of "masks" to hide how much pain and discomfort that they are in all the time. Some of these illnesses include pain, chronic fatigue, cognitive dysfunctions, dizziness, brain injuries, learning differences and mental health disorders, as well as hearing and vision impairments. More than 130 million Americans are affected by a chronic illness. 96% of those people are suffering in silence, a victim of invisibility. Many times, they smile and lie, saying, "I'm fine, doing ok", even to those that they love - spouses, children, parents, and even doctors. The plight of someone with an invisible illness is a lonely one. Can you imagine suffering in silence? We have all done this at some point. But could you do it every single day? It is our nature as humans to judge one another based entirely on what we see. For many people with a disability, there is a way to see it, a visible impairment such as a wheelchair, cane, walker, even a limp. You look at that person and you know that they have a condition of some sort. You may even go out of your way to help them by opening a door or assisting them across a crosswalk. 74% of people with a disability do not use any of the aforementioned assistive devices. For those dealing with an invisible illness, there is typically nothing to show another person that they are in any way impaired! How can you help? First, remember that every single person is different. Just because someone is in a wheelchair does not mean that they can't do a lot more than you might expect. Keep that same thought in mind for those suffering from invisible illnesses. They may look perfectly capable to you, but sometimes they simply aren't at 100% and will not be able to do everything that you think they should. Next, treat everyone with respect and kindness. You have no idea what they are dealing with on a daily basis. If someone looks tired, do not assume that they spent the previous evening at a party! (Yes, this has happened to me.) Be considerate and thoughtful. Don't make assumptions about people feel. Instead, ask. Ask how that person feels. Ask someone if they need help. Finally, join us this week for Invisible Illness Awareness Week, running from September 28 through October 4, 2015. This annual event was started in 2002 by a woman named Lisa Copen. After living many years with an invisible illness, she decided that we need to spread awareness, educate one another, and create a network of people helping one another to deal with the battle that we are silently fighting one at a time. This year's theme is My Invisible Fight. Here on Vingle - and elsewhere - I will be doing my part to help spread awareness and shed a light on my own invisible fight. Later tonight, I will posting something called "Our 30 Things". This is basically a "30 questions" for those of us fighting a chronic condition. If you would like to post your 30 things, please, let me know and I will tag you in that post. Remember that you Are Not ALONE. You are no longer INVISIBLE. Together, we are Stronger. Edit: here is that card - My 30 Things. Are you asking yourself if you even "qualify"? If you are asking, then you do. There are thousands of illnesses that are considered "invisible". This explanation is from the Invisible Disabilities Association: "We do not maintain a list of specific illnesses and diagnosis’s that are considered invisible disabilities. Invisible disabilities are such symptoms as debilitating fatigue, pain, cognitive dysfunctions and mental disorders, as well as hearing and eyesight impairments and more. There are thousands of illnesses, disorders, diseases, dysfunctions, birth defects, impairments and injuries that can be debilitating. Therefore, all conditions that are debilitating are included when we talk about invisible disabilities..." Again, if you even think you MIGHT qualify, then you likely do! #invisiblefighting

How to Deal with Anti-Fans Online
We've been seeing a lot of "Kpop fans" kicking up some hate* on social media and I'd like to enlist the help of Vingle's guardian angel Choi Minho to remind us how to deal with them. Minho, if you please: 1. Do NOT Engage. Do not respond to them. That is exactly what they want. Even if they directly reply to you, DO NOT ANSWER THEM. I know they're infuriating and you want to shut them down, but it never ever works. Think of it like a forest fire, if they have stuff to burn the fire will keep growing. Take away their fuel and they'll die off. 2. Flood the thread. Bury the hate under positivity. Send messages of love and praise and hope, to get rid of the hate, anger, and rudeness. Its so much more fun to watch them get frustrated by your sweet messages (not directed at them, direct them at the person they're attacking!) rather than getting in a fight with them. 3. Watch Your Work Pay Off Slowly you see the haters back away and you can pat yourself and your fellow fans on the back for a job well done. Voila! Keep up the good work Vinglers and fight the good fight! * I would, however, like to mention that pointing out and not supporting your faves’ problematic aspects DOES NOT MAKE YOU ANY LESS OF A FAN BUT MAKES YOU AN ENGAGED AND AWARE CONSUMER. What’s the point of being a fan if you’re not a critical one? What’s the point of absorbing media without the intention of analyzing it? If the argument is a constructive one, then don't write off any random person not wholeheartedly supporting a kpop artist as a "hater" :)
To Vinglers: Thank You For Your Strength and Compassion
Vingle is a place to connect with people who love the things that you love. Many Vinglers have become best friends and in a few cases, they've become like family. Recently, the Vingle community was shocked by news of a fellow Vingler @BBxGD's illness. Rather than despairing or falling silent, the Vingle Kpop community's response was absolutely incredible. Hundreds of messages, comments, and cards were written cheering for @BBxGD and offering her support and positivity. When a large group of Vinglers organized a social media campaign to ask Korean entertainers to send encouragement, Vingle did whatever they could to help. Vingle reached out to Big Bang's Taeyang to let him know how brave @BBxGD has been during this tough time, and how incredibly loving and supporting our Vingle community is. He was touched and, wanting to offer his prayers and support, was kind enough to send @BBxGD a personal message and CD. Taeyang asked us to send these to @BBxGD from Korea. We hope this little gift will give her more positive energy and power to get over her illness and recover fast. This is a testament to not only @BBxGD's strength as a person but to how truly loving the Vingle family is. This could never have happened without the support from the Vingle community. The entire Vingle Team was moved by the kindness that was shown, and we are so proud to be the platform of such a caring community. Now we ask all of Vingle to take a moment to send love and positive thoughts towards @BBxGD. Thank you, Vinglers and stay strong, @BBxGD!
A Simple Guide to Women's Vitamins
While a balanced diet should get you all that you need nutritionally, there will always be days when you need a little help. Taking the right supplements will give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to stay in top shape. This list contains some of the best vitamins for young adult women, but are only suggestions! Food is the best source of nutrition, but when you have fallen into a junk food kick or have been sick and unable to get the right vitamins, this list should help boost your body’s nutritional intake. A Good Women’s Multi. If you’re going to choose one vitamin from this list, it should be a multi-vitamin that is made specifically for women. Make sure it contains folic acid, which is very important for women ages 18 to 40! Be sure to take these after you have eaten something. It is very common to feel nauseous if you take one of these on an empty stomach. Biotin. Biotin does amazing things for hair, skin and nails. Just taking 500 micrograms a day, can make your hair longer and shinier, your skin clearer, and your nails stronger. Iron. Iron is especially important for any vegan or vegetarians out there. You only need about 10-20 milligrams, but it makes a serious difference in your mood. If you eat a lot of red meat (about a serving every day) you might be getting enough iron already. Leafy greens like spinach are also great source of iron! Zinc. Zinc is an important mineral that boosts our immune systems and helps to fight off disease. Make sure you’re getting between 8 milligrams and 11 milligrams of zinc daily. Fish Oil. This omega-3 right supplement is fabulous for healthy hair, skin and nails, and will support your heart and blood systems. Take about 1-2 grams per day. But be prepared, certain capsules might lead to weird fish oil burps later in the day (ew!) Vitamin D. The main job of vitamin D is to help your bones absorb calcium and phosphorus and to keep your cells happy and healthy. You can get a ton of this from sunlight, my letting the sun hit your closed eyelids for fast absorption! If you live somewhere with constant cloudy weather or you're inside too much, you might not be getting enough vitamin D. Taking 3000 IUs should help to get you back on track. Calcium-Magnesium. Calcium is one of the most important supplements that women can take to strengthen their muscles, bones and teeth. A glass of milk just isn't going to cut it! The recommended dosage is 1000 milligrams of calcium and 400-600 milligrams of magnesium. As with all things in life, take these suggestions in moderation!
