Tension Headaches? I’ve Got Your Natural Remedy

I can’t think of anything as hard to deal with than a tension headache. Well, there are things I guess that are harder  like natural child birth but at least with that there is a reward. The tension headache rewards no one. I used to have them quite a bit and have tried a lot of things. Of course prayer is the first solution but after that try this:   Boil 3 cups of water Add 2 tablespoons of fresh ground ginger Allow to steep for 5 minutes Add natural honey to taste Ginger is a great remedy for inflammation which is usually a tension headache cause. Lay down and rest while you sip your mixture and plan to spend some time just resting your head on a good pillow where the back of your neck and shoulders are supported. Breathe deeply a few times and let a lot of relaxing air into your system and then blow out and completely relax ! Surprise! After some rest your headache should be gone. Give this a …

Did You Know How Coconut Oil Can Kill Mouth Bacteria? Here are the Benefits!

I was never so happy to discover that coconut oil has so many benefits for our bodies! Please see my post on the benefits of coconut oil! The Benefits of Coconut Oil . Now I have discovered that using coconut oil as a replacement to mouth wash is so good for us! All that is needed is to take a spoonful of oil in the morning after brushing your teeth and swish it around like mouthwash. Do NOT swallow it because it removes bacteria from the teeth, gums, and tongue. You don’t want this in your stomach! The point of it all is to eliminate a lot of the mouth bacteria that eventually ends up in the stomach. Swish it gently for anywhere from 5-20 minutes. Then spit it out and rinse your mouth. Here are the benefits: Cures bad breath Keeps bacteria from entering into the stomach from the mouth Helps avoid skin eruptions due to lower bacteria being ingested. Gives a bright shiny beautiful smile Keeps gums safe from gum disease Will help major skin …

Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Panic Disorder, and Healing and Deliverance

I can’t think of many things that are as scary as a panic attack. I remember when I first started having them! I felt like I was going to die. I had no idea what they were or even to handle them. Even after I knew, I still did not know how to handle them! God wants us to be powerfully free from all anxiety, fear, and panic. In this video I tell some of my story about how I dealt with anxiety, panic attacks and panic disorder. I also explain what spirit this is that is causing it and deliverance from it. My hope is for your healing and my prayer is for your deliverance! If you need help, all 800-421-1765 and leave a message. You will be called back! Pastor Jenine Marie Howry

Are You Depressed and Anxious?

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. (Genesis 1:1-2). Do you ever feel formless and void sometimes? I know I do. Sometimes between seasons that change in my life I can get this glazed over look like I am somewhere in another realm waiting for life support. Or then there are the times when I know I need to be writing a message and I just stare at the computer screen wondering where my mind is. I was sure it was there the last time I looked! All kidding aside, feeling formless and void can also be a serious thing. According to the National Institute of Mental Health there are over 40 MILLION people in this country that suffer from anxiety type conditions alone. In 2014 over 15.7 MILLION adults were diagnosed with a form of depressive disorder. The mental health bills in this country are up …

Do NOT Eat These If You Have a Struggling Thyroid Gland

Most of the time when I do research for good healthy habits I am searching for foods and things I should be taking in. I’ve discovered that sometimes I need to take a look at foods to avoid. I was kind of shocked when I discovered there are foods a person would need to avoid for the purpose of keeping the thyroid healthy. The thyroid is that butterfly looking gland that is right below the Adam’s apple in the neck. Having a troubled thyroid can really mess with a person’s health and sense of well being. The thyroid regulates calcium and also how tissues use proteins. Keeping the thyroid healthy will keep your body working and serving you well. **Some foods to avoid if you struggle with thyroid issues. Let me begin with some of the foods NOT to eat if you struggle with thyroid issues or you are concerned about keeping a healthy thyroid. Cruciferous vegetables – such as cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts (cooking reduces the effects on the thyroid. Cruciferous means “cross bearing” because of …

Is Caffeine Making You Feel Sick?

There are times when I often thought there can be nothing better than the first cup of coffee in the morning. There is a sense of “ahhhh” that some how takes place with it. I always looked forward to that morning moment with God and a good cup of coffee with stevia and some low fat creamer. I think it has been an addiction of mine since I was 15 years old. The strange thing is, I never really completely liked the taste of coffee. It seems to just be that first cup that is so mesmerizing but the following ones never ever tasted as good. Of course there is that idea in our heads that we need a good cup of coffee in the morning to get us started. The honest to goodness truth is that our bodies know how to get started without it. It was not until recently that I started to explore the adverse effects of the caffeine in a cup of coffee. Once I read enough about it, I was …

The Magic of Magnesium

In my latest quest to feel better after a period of illness, I have discovered the massive health benefits and needs of magnesium. I had been having horrible migraine like headaches, muscle weakness, and loss of good sleep. Along with these, constipation and horrible heart palpitations as well. Strangely these symptoms and more can be an indication that there is a magnesium deficiency. This very important element is involved with over 300 bodily processes and is much needed for the absorption of many other vitamins and minerals. Magnesium is involved with the nerves, muscles, and bones. Every area of the body needs it for good health and function. Who knew? If you have not studied nutrition you might have missed this important element. I recall those good health and nutrition classes in high school we always had to take but never had I ever learned the benefits of some vital minerals and vitamins for good body function. When the body breaks down and one becomes ill, believe me, we have to study beyond the usual visual …
