1) GETTING GROUNDED FOR A POSITIVE LIFE
By Buddha Groove

At Balance by Buddha Groove, we believe that a good day begins with a solid foundation and overall sense of wellbeing. Whether you’re already on track for the resolutions you set at the beginning of the year or need to center yourself after a life’s twist, here are a few small suggestions to help you get grounded.


Cleanse Your Space 


A fresh, revitalized environment inspires a clear, optimistic mindset. Clear out the old energies of yesterday by performing a purifying smudging ritual. Using a special smudging kit or palo Santo set, you can ride your space of any unwanted or negative energy to make room for new intentions and positive vibrations. 


Focus On Your Root Chakra


  Residing at the base of the spine, the Root Chakra is the energy center that rules over stability and security. Focusing and meditating on your Root Chakra builds a strong emotional core that will keep you steady throughout the upcoming year. There are many methods for balancing and strengthening this special energy center. Try essential oils specially selected to open up your Root Chakra or light a Root Chakra candle made with grounding gemstones. You can also try special asanas or meditating with mudras that align with the Root Chakra.  


Practice Grounding Yoga Poses 


Being grounded has as much to do with bodily balance as it does mental and spiritual health. Build a physical foundation for the new year through some restorative yoga. We recommend these simple asanas, which are beginner-friendly and designed to connect to your center through calm focus. 


Find a Mantra for the Month 


Just like setting  New Year’s resolutions, why not set a personal mantra any time of the year for a week, a month, or the entire year? The right mantra can help you face the oncoming days with a strong, empowered attitude. Select a simple, powerful word like “Calm” or “Fearless”. Or choose a confidence-boosting phrase, like “I Am Enough”. Wear the mantra on a piece of jewelry or hang it in your home as a piece of art. Recite it as often as you’d like, grounding yourself and drawing strength from its words throughout the year. 


Use Grounding Gemstones

 
While gemstones can be harnessed for many different purposes, stones known for their grounding energies can channel strength, balance and harmonizing. We recommended stones like smoky quartz, Tiger’s Eye, jasper, Agate and Obsidian. Wear them on jewelry to let your body absorb their powers, or place them in a space where their energies can radiate throughout the room.

2) 7 MILK THISLE USES TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH
By Dr. Edward F. Group


Milk thistle (Silybum marianum), a member of the Asteraceae family, is a therapeutic herb with a 2000-year history of use in traditional Chinese, European, and Ayurvedic medicine. Originally native to Southern Europe, Asia Minor, and the Mediterranean region, the plant now grows wild throughout the world. In addition to being one of the most commonly used supplements for supporting liver health, milk thistle also offers specialized nutrition for the cardiovascular system, prostate, and gallbladder. High-quality, organic milk thistle is inexpensive, readily available, and should be on your list.


How Milk Thistle Improves Your Health


Let’s take a look at seven exciting ways milk thistle supports good health.


1. Assists Antioxidant Activity


The health benefits of milk thistle lie in its seeds, the extract of which is called silymarin. Silymarin is a potent antioxidant. The extract contains natural compounds called flavonolignans, which are phytochemicals that are part flavonoid and part lignan. Silibinin is the most active flavonolignan in silymarin. While silibinin itself is a strong antioxidant, silymarin is 8 to 10 times more potent than silibinin alone in scavenging free radicals.


2. Nutritional Support for the Liver and Gallbladder


Milk thistle’s foremost role in traditional medicine is to support liver and gallbladder health. The liver is one of your body’s primary organs for detoxification. Maintaining its proper function is critically important to overall wellness. Milk thistle is one of the best herbs you can use to promote liver health. Silymarin helps the liver grow new cells by boosting protein synthesis. Silymarin may even counteract some toxin-induced liver ailments.


3. Encourages Normal Lipid Profiles


Milk thistle may support normal lipid profiles. Early research suggests that silymarin, combined with other flavonoids, may promote ideal lipid absorption and synthesis in the body. The exact mechanism behind these properties is unknown, although it may relate to the herb’s strong antioxidant properties.


4. Promotes Healthy Skin


Topical preparations of milk thistle extract may benefit the skin. Silymarin appears to encourage normal skin cell development. A topically-applied, silymarin-based skin cream also promoted healthy skin.Some have even begun to look at silymarin as a natural replacement for conventional sunscreen.


5. Supports Normal Blood Sugar


Recent studies have focused on milk thistle’s potential to encourage normal blood sugar. Daily administration of silymarin may promote normal blood sugar levels. Silibinin specifically has shown beneficial effects on conditions that arise from imbalanced blood sugar.


6. Supports Prostate Health


The prostate is a small organ in the male reproductive system. It produces prostatic fluid, which nourishes and protects sperm. Unfortunately, the prostate can also be the point of development for threatening conditions. Fortunately, milk thistle supports normal prostate health. Silymarin has shown many benefits to prostate health, including normal cell development and the development of new blood vessels.A related milk thistle compound, isosilybin B, was found to be particularly effective.More research is necessary, but studies like these provide strong support for the use of silibinin to support prostate health.


7. May Counteract Mushroom Poisoning


Amanita phalloides, more commonly known as the death cap, is a deadly mushroom commonly mistaken for edible varieties. The appropriately-named fungus is one of the most poisonous mushrooms on Earth and the most frequent cause of fatal mushroom poisonings worldwide. Milk thistle not only can prevent this but intravenous administration of silymarin is, in fact, the only thing that works. Silymarin stabilizes cell membranes and inhibits the absorption of the toxin. In any case of poisoning, such administration should be done by a medical provider.


The Side Effects of Milk Thistle


Milk thistle is safe for most people, but those with a ragweed allergy should avoid it. As a member of the ragweed family, the plant can upset the condition. Due to its effects on blood sugar, those who already suffer from low blood sugar should exercise caution. While safe for humans, milk thistle is toxic to cows and sheep when eaten in large amounts over a period of days or weeks.


Best Tips for Growing Milk Thistle


You can buy organic milk thistle seeds online, but if you want them fresh, you may have to grow your own. Fortunately, the plant is extremely easy to grow. Maybe even a little too easy. There’s a reason it’s often thought of as a highly invasive weed.


In fact, be sure to check your local laws before planting. Because of its prolific nature, some jurisdictions restrict milk thistle. For example, the state of Washington recognizes the plant as a “Class A Noxious Weed” that must be eradicated when found. You could face a stiff fine for growing it intentionally.


Once you’ve checked your local laws, you’ll need to obtain viable milk thistle seeds. These can be ordered online or harvested from an existing plant. You can start the seeds indoors, but the plant is hardy enough that you can probably plant directly outside.


In mid to late summer the flowers will dry and transform into a white puff that’s similar to a dandelion. This is when it’s time to harvest your seeds. Beneficial aspects aside, remember that the plant is still a thistle. It has little, spiky barbs, so wear thick gardening gloves and be careful. Remove all the puffy white flower heads and put them in a paper bag. Keep the flowers in the bag for about a week to dry. At the end of the week, shake the bag vigorously to separate the seed from the fluff.


Easy Milk Thistle Tea Recipe


Making a tea is a great way to access the health benefits of milk thistle seed. Using a mortar, grind one tablespoon of milk thistle seeds into a powder. Steep in 3 cups of boiling water for about 15 minutes and strain. Enjoy a cup 30 minutes before meals or bedtime. Some cultures even enjoy roasted, crushed milk thistle seeds as an alternative to coffee.

3) TOP REASONS TO TRY ACUPUNCTURE
This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC


Discover a world of benefits with acupuncture that goes beyond alleviating chronic pain, from helping treat various forms of addiction to addressing depression


Will a time-tested intervention like acupuncture point your health in the right direction, or is it a useless stab at well-being?


A centuries-old practice that takes off from traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has been widely studied for its potential against chronic pain. In one of the largest studies to date on the relationship, a meta-analysis involving almost 18,000 patients found that acupuncture can effectively treat chronic pain, serving as "more than a placebo."


The scientific literature, however, shows that stimulating certain points on the body, often with a needle that penetrates the skin, may go well beyond alleviating pain. Here are seven reasons to try acupuncture for better health today.


1. Addiction


Acupuncture involves a meridian system that strings connecting acupuncture points through which energy flows throughout the body.In an animal study, acupuncture stimulation emerged as a useful therapeutic alternative, with few side effects, for treating morphine addiction. With the prevalence of excessive internet use alongside compulsive behaviors like checking your cellphone, acupuncture may also prove beneficial in combating internet addiction. A 2021 systematic review offers proof of the efficacy of the practice in treating the disorder, noting that "it is of great significance for effective clinical routine treatment" of the condition.


2. Insomnia


Acupuncture has also demonstrated good efficacy (with few side effects) against insomnia, an ongoing public health threat worldwide.


In a 2010 study, total sleep time, quality and efficiency in the group that received scalp penetration acupuncture significantly increased as compared with participants in the routine acupuncture group, suggesting that scalp penetration acupuncture may be particularly useful for those struggling with insomnia.


Combined with cupping, where a local suction is created on skin with the application of heated cups, acupuncture also treated insomnia and "tranquilized" the mind among college students.


3. Fatty Liver


Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of liver dysfunction globally. Its increasing incidence is associated with the simultaneous epidemics of obesity, unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle. Acupuncture may help inhibit NAFLD by regulating lipid metabolism, improving insulin resistance and increasing the antioxidant levels of liver tissue.


4. Tinnitus


Characterized by ringing or other noises in one or both ears, tinnitus is a challenge for patients as well as researchers and health care professionals looking for an effective cure. Acupuncture has surfaced across different studies as a viable option for treating the condition.


A 2020 study on patients with severe chronic subjective tinnitus emphasized acupuncture as an effective treatment, but stressed the need for maintenance acupuncture therapy, as patient complaints dipped at the second treatment week but reappeared in the third month post-treatment.


Separate research also pointed to combined acupuncture and continuous multi-point pulse stimulation for better therapeutic results among tinnitus patients.


5. Stroke


The age-old healing practice may also help patients with their post-stroke recovery.  For instance, acupuncture improves cognitive impairment after stroke, enhances functional communication and helps recover motor and nervous functions in those who had acute to chronic stroke cases.


According to recent neuroimaging studies, the stimulation from acupuncture at motor-involved acupoints modulated the activities of brain areas that were relevant to the processing of motor functions.In 2014 research, it enhanced effective connectivity between the cerebellum and primary sensorimotor cortex in patients with stable-recovery stroke.


6. Depression


Among post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients, acupuncture was associated with a significantly greater improvement in depression and pain, as well as physical and mental health functioning, compared to those who received usual PTSD care.It was also found safe and effective for perimenopausal and post-stroke depression.


Acupuncture also compared favorably to fluoxetine hydrochloride, a drug commonly sold under the brand name Prozac, in treating depression, without the side effects.


7. Obesity


Acupuncture has great therapeutic value for weight loss. For treating simple obesity, alongside reasonable diet and exercise, it proved safe and effective and may even be "more effective than routine western medicine," according to the researchers.


A separate study in 2020 found acupuncture was an effective therapy for improving body mass index (BMI), body weight and waist circumference. The procedure worked significantly better than a sham acupuncture procedure, and researchers called for longer-term and more rigorous randomized controlled trials to look further into acupuncture's effects on obesity.


In another example, a study among polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) patients with abdominal obesity found acupuncture effectively reduced markers such as fasting insulin and waist circumference, thus helping to regulate glucose metabolism, insulin resistance and sex hormones. This was "significantly superior to simple diet control plus exercise," the researchers wrote.


The GMI Research Group (GMIRG) is dedicated to investigating the most important health and environmental issues of the day.  Special emphasis will be placed on environmental health.  Our focused and deep research will explore the many ways in which the present condition of the human body directly reflects the true state of the ambient environment.
