5 Powerful Recipes for Your Wellness in 2019


Living in a fast-paced world, we don’t have much time to think about our health and wellness. While trying to catch up with everything that goes around us, we forget to think about what’s going on with ourselves. As a result, most of us feel exhausted, sad, and nervous.

And, as the old saying “You are what you eat” says, the food we eat plays a major role when it comes to our well-being. Namely, if we don’t eat healthy food, we won’t be healthy. Therefore, we need to start consuming nutrients-rich foods. And, if you want that too, here are 5 powerful recipes to try this year.

5 CBD Oil Benefits & Effects on Our Brain Health


The body’s endocannabinoid system is a neuromodulatory signaling system that affects body balance and mental health. The best CBD oil has chemicals that interact with the endocannabinoid messengers in the body. This helps to treat diseases, pain, and other mental health conditions.

The endocannabinoid system plays a very crucial role in the development of the central nervous system, the body's reaction to internal and environmental effects and the synaptic plasticity. The three primary parts of the endocannabinoid system include:
  • The endocannabinoids
  • The body and nervous system receptors that cannabinoids and endocannabinoids connect with
  • The enzymes that assist in the break-down the cannabinoids and endocannabinoids

CBD, CBD Oil, health, brain health
5 CBD oil benefits and effects on our brain health
The endocannabinoid system is the bridge between the mind and the body. Cannabinoids, on the other hand, help to regulate the internal and cellular homeostasis.  

How CBD Communicates With the Brain

The brain has protein receptors that respond to endocannabinoids. When CBD is ingested using a weed pen, its cannabinoids bind to the receptors.

Here are the different ways CBD oil interacts with the brain

CBD Helps to Promote Healthy Brain Cells

Age contributes a lot to memory and learning difficulties. The cognitive decline as you age can be slow or dramatic. It is vital that you keep your brain healthy as you grow older.

Age-related cognitive decline can be due to lifestyle habits, genetics, or a decrease in neurogenesis and neuroplasticity in the aging brain. Neuroplasticity occurs when the brain can reorganize and change, stimulating your memory and learning. Neurogenesis is the recreation of new brain cells.

When the body consumes CBD, it helps to increase neuroplasticity and neurogenesis.

CBD Helps to Reduce Neuroinflammation

Neuroinflammation affects many neurological conditions such as depression, Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, stroke, memory issues, and more. Inflammation can also cause brain fog and fatigue.  

CBD oil can slow down the body’s inflammatory response. It reduces neuroinflammation in the brain after a stroke and helps to alleviate symptoms of various neurological conditions. 

CBD Can Protect the Brain Against Oxidative Damage

Free radicals can cause oxidative damage to the brain. The best CBD oil helps to protect the brain from oxidative damage and reduce age-related decline. Free radicals are natural consequences that occur when you breathe, eat, and sleep. Exposure to too much stress, poor diet, pollution increases the production of free radicals. CBD contains powerful antioxidant properties that help to stop free radical damage.

CBD is an Anticonvulsant

CBD oil has been used in various clinical trials for epileptic patients and found to be effective in eliminating seizures. Scientists say that this due to the way CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. In other studies, CBD was found to antagonize CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system and reduce the frequency of seizures.

CBD Interacts With Neurotransmitters in the Brain

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers used by the brain cells to communicate. They relay information between nerve cells to transport information throughout the body and brain. 

The brain uses neurotransmitters to instruct body organs to function. For example, they will tell the stomach to digest food, the lungs to breathe, and the heart to beat. Therefore neurotransmitters can affect your concentration, sleep, mood, and also cause adverse symptoms when they are not balanced. Poor diet, stress, genetic predisposition, neurotoxins, and certain pharmaceuticals can make neurotransmitter levels get out of their optimal range.

CBD oil was used in studies which reported an increase in the levels of serotonin and glutamate in depressed individuals. The brain's prefrontal cortex that controls your mood, executive functioning, and personality relies on serotonin. Glutamate is responsible for brain memory and learning.

CBD and Neural Regeneration – Healing Your Brain

When you suffer from depression, a section of the brain will atrophy or even shrink – especially the area responsible for emotion, learning, and memory (the hippocampus). The hippocampus can regenerate and grow new neurons while forming new connections in a process known as neurogenesis.

Researchers found out that CBD oil can protect neurons in the hippocampus to regulate seizures. The CBD treatment can help to prevent brain shrinking.

The researchers also think that CBD can regenerate the hippocampus through endocannabinoids. This is because CBD can increase the natural levels of endocannabinoids in the brain.

The brain-derived neurotrophic factor is another protein that helps neurons to survive. It also encourages the growth of new connections (synapses) and neurons. When CBD increases the levels of a brain-derived neurotrophic factor in the hippocampus, it will reduce any depressive symptoms.

Conclusion

CBD oil has beneficial neurological effects that help with depression, anxiety, brain fog, depression, and much more. More clinical trials are underway to confirm the effects of CBD on neurological health

In order to improve your brain health, look for quality CBD oil. Always consult with your primary physician to help you with CBD dosage and make sure it doesn't interfere with other medications.

How to Effectively Use CBD Oil for Dogs: Dosage


CBD Oil, pets, taking care of pets, animal health, dog care,


When your pets are ill, right medication is very important. Equally important is administering the correct dosage of the medicines given to them. Otherwise, instead of helping your pets get well, incorrect medication and dosage could worsen their illness or could lead to more damages to them.

CBD from the Cannabis plant is known to be a powerful compound with healing properties and which is said to be helping pets deal with a variety of symptoms and ailments. Visit https://www.health.com/pain/what-is-cbd to learn more about cannabidoil.

But since DFA has not yet regulated the use of CBD, aside from it being available almost everywhere, its dosage is not yet established. Hence, administering this to pets can be tricky and needs more attention than regulated medications.

Things to Consider

CBD comes in three different preparations: oil, capsules, treats. Decide in which form you want to have for your dog, this will also depend on what ailment and symptoms your dog is experiencing. CBD oil comes mostly in the form of tinctures.

The size of your pet is also a thing to consider. The amount of CBD will depend on the size and weight of your pets, just like any other medicine. Large dogs would require more CBD intake for it to be effective. Although, high quality products are expected to come with their own dosage instruction and this will depend on the weight of your dog.

Lastly, make certain your dog’s ailment first before you decide on how much CBD you should give them.

Dosage

CBD Oil, pets, taking care of pets, animal health, dog care,

Most often, CBD oils come in the form of tinctures; administering will be in drops,

For therapeutic purposes for example, a medium-sized dog can be given 2 to 3 drops of CBD oil.

But just like determining the right dosage for humans, you can start from below and work your way up. This compound reacts with the body’s receptors so different pets will have different reactions to it. That is why it I best to start conservatively and them watch for reactions – positive or negative – and then work up on increments, but also be mindful of the kind of ailment your dog has. Some dogs may be more sensitive to it so effects will show immediately on small doses. But it other dogs, it could take a few more minutes and a little more on the dosage for effects to show. Hence, careful observation must be done.

Just like humans, it will take 3 to 7 days for the effects of CBD to be noticed. So if you have not seen any signs of it working with your dogs after several doses, do not just stop yet. Stick to the 7-day rule. While doing this, increase the dosage in small amounts.

Click this to read more about the effects of cannabidoil.

Below is a rundown of a recommended dosage for your dogs, according to their weight:

5 lbs = 0.25 mg
10 lbs = 0.5 mg
20 lbs = 1 mg
40 lbs = 2 mg
60 lbs = 3 mg
80 lbs = 4 mg
100 lbs = 5 mg
120 lbs = 6 mg

Begin administering treatment with the lowest dosage and observe. Three days after, when no effect is noticed, increase by 0.5 mg. You might need this increment a few times more until you find that dosage where you see effects on your dog. Give it some time and extend some patience.

Watch Out for Side Effects

Oil derived from hemp is generally safe and has no toxic effects. Even if this is taken long periods of time, developing a tolerance does not occur, or at least has proven not to. If you have already found the dose where your dog has responded positively, there is no longer need to increase it.

If your dog is already taking medications, you might want to discuss with your veterinarian any possible reactions if you start administering CBD to your dog. It may alter the breakdown of compounds in the medications so instead of helping, it could hamper the healing process of your dog.

Lastly, always make sure that your dog is give high-quality and hemp-derived CBD only. Know that only hemp-based CBD contains little THC or perhaps even nothing at all.

3 Reasons to Hire a Magician for Your Child’s Birthday Party


Family, Birthday, birthday celebration, birthday party, birthday preparation, magician for hire

Birthday parties are an important rite of passage for young children. In fact, if you ask most kids under seven, they don’t even believe you can age without one. For them, it’s a necessary milestone to get to the next year, and for you, it’s a way to show them you love them and celebrate their youth. 

The question is what type of party to throw. With advanced technology and 24/7 cartoons available, it’s getting harder and harder to keep them entertained. But there’s one entertainer most children never get tired of — a good magician. In addition to that, here are a few more reasons hiring one is a good idea.

It requires less planning

If this isn’t your first birthday party to throw, you already know how much planning can be involved. You’ve got to decide on a theme, buy a cake, and plan party games. Hiring a magician could save you loads of time and make your life a little easier. Hiring a magician won’t get you out of all the planning, but all of your entertainment will be covered. You can rest assured that the whole party will be filled with excitement while you get out of planning a single game. Just make sure you’ve picked a place that’s big enough for the magician to work. Most living areas and backyards are just fine, but you might have to move some stuff around. Then, all you have to do is pick the theme, buy the cake, and hire a Long Island Magician. Your birthday boy or girl will be thrilled and their party will be the talk of the class.

It can help your child make friends

As a parent, nothing is harder than when children have trouble fitting in or making friends. But birthday parties are great avenues for making that happen. For one thing, most parents will bring their kids to their classmates’ parties even if they’re not really friends at school. It’s just common etiquette, so it’s a great time to interact. However, once you get them to the parties, it’s important to find ways to help the kids bond, and a magic show happens to be one of the best. Magic shows are considered great team-building events in the corporate world. They allow everyone to be involved, laugh together, and have fun. It’s no different for children, especially in the case of a birthday party, where the star of the show is your child. 

In addition to helping your child bond with other kids their age, a magic show birthday is a good time to get to know the other adults. Building relationships with other parents in your child’s classroom is a good way to help your child adapt and fit into their environment. Not only will it keep you informed about things going on at school, but it can also help you with conflict resolution in the future, should it arise. For example, if your child is being bullied, being friends with the other kid’s parents may make it easier to broach the subject. 

It will make your child feel special

Children thrive when they feel loved and accepted by their parents, and what better way to show that than an over-the-top birthday? Sure, any party can make them feel special, but doing things that go above and beyond the expected can make them feel adored. The magician you hire can make your kid feel like the star of the show by showering special attention on them and making them their helper. It’s also a great way to build lasting memories. This will be an unforgettable party that everyone will be talking about for a long time. 

Throwing your child a party they will remember for years to come may seem difficult. But by opting for a magician party, you can rest assured knowing that the festivities will be enjoyed by the birthday person and everyone they choose to have at the party.

What Are The Positive Effects Divorce Can Have on Children?


Divorce is widely understood as a failure in marriage. To cope with divorce, parents have to go through fire and water sometime. The whole scenario needs a great deal of strength and courage. However, sometimes divorce can prove to be a better way out if parents are genuinely unhappy with their lives. A reputable Mankato family law attorney can help alleviate the negative repurcussions of divorce.

Divorce isn't confined just to the couple, but stretches out to the whole family. The impacts are undeniable. Regardless of the negative effects related to it, there is a positive approach to look at divorce from a youngster's perspective.

Some Positive Impacts are Also Associated with Divorce


Note that these constructive outcomes are in contrast with a family of quibbling parents and not an ordinary family with cherishing parents.

1. Happy Parents Denote a Happy Child

If parents avoid fighting, the kid needn’t have to encounter a stressed atmosphere at home. As they are never again welcomed by contentions, they return home from school with a positive mentality. It additionally guarantees that the youngster does not meander away with a bad company to abstain from quarreling parents at home.

2. The Kid Could Be Less Inclined to Addiction

The divorce deed is completed and over at last. That is to say, the separated parents would now be able to concentrate on the kids as the undertaking of getting divorced is finished. The child needs not to depend on pseudo-comforters like drugs and liquor.

3. The Child Invests Quality Time with Parents

If the child feels free to shuttle between the houses of his both parents, then he may invest productive time. His communications are never again interpreted by a contention, and he can spill his heart out unreservedly. It likewise offers each parent a chance to divide the obligation equally, and still be the caring mother or father that they have been.

4. Improve Grades

Research has demonstrated that divorce can enable a child to concentrate better and improve his grades because he never again has the things of quarrelling parents back home. Additionally, each parent devotes their time for the child's schoolwork and studies. You know study needs full concentration. Quarrelling of parents all the time ruin peace at home, so, the children are unable to focus their studies and fail in the exams.

5. Children do not Rehash their Parents' Mistakes

What takes place when you observe your parents' marriage come to an end? The experience teaches them the best life lessons on how to cope with relationships. Studies about positive outcomes of divorce have demonstrated that youngsters who witness the split of their parents can perform maturity and tolerance while overseeing clashes in their relationships. They know how to communicate better and consistently endeavour to be great by not rehashing the slip-ups of their parents.

6. Your kids will learn Empathy for Others

When kids experience a major life change, for example, a divorce, it teaches them how to show empathy for other people. Sooner or later they will know their parents are just humans and no one is immaculate. They will learn everybody is special and everybody does feel pain.

Conclusion

Sometimes divorce comes out with positive outcomes concerning children. The child's response to their parents' decision relies upon different factors, for example, the age of the kid and gender.

Keto Diet For Weight-Loss and More


fitness, health, keto diet, keto salts, low carb diet,

The Keto or Ketogenic Diet is a very-low carbohydrate diets but allows you to increase fat intake. By lowering the amount of carbs intake, turns your system in a ketosis state.

At this state, the body becomes efficient in burning fat as source of energy. Furthermore, the fats in the liver will be converted into ketones which becomes the energy source for the brain.

Some uses this diet as their method of losing extra pounds without the feeling of hunger. Others incorporate Keto salts like Ketond for faster results. However, before using these supplements, physician's advice is highly recommended. 

There are several types of Keto diet.


The standard ketonic diet is a very low carb (5%) , high fat (75%), and moderate protein (20%) scheme.

The cyclical ketonic diet is a scheme that includes days of eating higher on a “cheat day”. For example, 5 days of standard ketonic diet followed by 2 days of higher carb meals.

The targeted ketogenic diet is used by individuals who are into gyms. This diet lets you increase the amount of carbs during workouts.

The last type is the high-protein ketogenic diet. Like the standard ketogenic diet, it is also a very low carb (5%) scheme but increases the amount of protein (35%) thus reducing the fat intake (60%).

Aside for weight-loss, Keto diet is also recommended for diabetic individuals. Diabetic persons lack insulin, when they eat  large amount of carbs, their blood sugar shoots. Since there are less carbs in the diet, there are only few amounts of carbohydrates digested and turned into glucose which lessen the amount of sugar in the body.

There are also other benefits of a Keto Diet like prevention of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, polycystic ovary syndrome, brain injuries and acne.

In following the keto diet, not only for weight-loss, but for other purposes limits some food intake like sugary food, grains or starches, fruits, beans and legumes, root vegetables and tubers, high-carb alcohols and even some condiments.

The good news is that you are allowed to increase some food in your meals likes meat, fatty fish, eggs, butter and cream, cheese, nuts, healthy oils and plenty of avocados.

Have you tried Keto diet?

Hello Momshies! Again, my apologies for posting late. Been so busy (lagi naman eh!). The truth is, apart from being busy, I am lacking that blogging inspiration again.

Also, I didn't know if there are still people who would want to read blogs. But, "I won't give up on us" sabi nga sa kanta. That's why here I am typing as fast as I can before I lose that momentum again.
