The Power of Prayer and your Health!!! Prayer, much like meditation in Buddhism, or concentration on breathing techniques in Yoga, causes the mind and body to focus on singular focal points.This helps align the mind, soul, and physical aspects of a human being. Its leads to lower cortisol levels, improve oxygen utilization, and confer numerous other psychological benefits. Marilyn Schlitz, Ph.D., and lecturer at Harvard, says, “It's clear from the correlational studies within the epidemiology data that positive relationships exist between religious, spiritual practice and health outcomes on a variety of different conditions.” She says that in a study and confirmation study on intercessory prayer, “the prayer groups had statistically significant improvements in outcome, suggesting that the intervention has clinical relevance.” For the past 30 years, Harvard scientist Herbert Benson, MD, has conducted his own studies on prayer. He focuses specifically on meditation, the Buddhist form of prayer, to understand how mind affects body. All forms of prayer, he says, evoke a relaxation response that quells stress, quiets the body, and promotes healing. So, pray, meditate and connect to a higher being is good for your health!!

Top 3 foods to help your belly bloating!! If you have bloating you have a bad gut!! I challenge you to try them for 3 days and see if your bloating doesn't go away? 1.Avocados also are a healthy superfood with good fats and contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. ... Insoluble fiber “cleans you up” and makes you regular, resulting in a healthy gut. These fibers are found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. It may help reduce inflammation and heal the gut.
2. Bone broth helps with inflammatory bowel disease or leaky gut syndrome may benefit from consuming bone broth. Some amino acids present within bone broth may also be helpful for digestion.The gelatin content of bone broth is the source of many good gut benefits
3.Fermented foods are a hot health topic-and for good reasons. These good bacteria-particularly those in our gut-may improve digestion, boost immunity and help us maintain a healthy weight. Fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut and pickles are rich in probiotics. The good bacteria grow during the fermentation process. Love,Pure Girl ❤❤❤❤❤❤ P.S. if you use an antibiotic, if you've been through chemotherapy and radiation you're gut is usually bad!! #picoftheday#guthealth #cancer photographer @beckifreed_legacyphotography make up artist @muarene Stylist @lyndellwerling ...

The old saying "an apple a day will keep the doctor away" has alot more trutht than we thought!!! 🍎🍏🍎Apples have a broad spectrum of more nutrients then your average fruit. So, think of it more like taking a multi vitamin. Some fruits may have higher nutrient content but they might skip out on other nutrients. When it comes to red verses green it's a tough call, as both apples contain their own benefits. However, green apples are my top pick, here is why; 🍏1. Less sugar than red 🍏2. Lower in carbohydrates 🍏3. Higher in dietary fiber 🍏4. Suppress appetite 🍏5. Rich in antioxidants 🍏6. They have polyphenol and flavonoids that prevent DNA damage (it's a cancer protective.) 🍏7. Reduces liver and digestive track issues. So, truly an apple a day may keep the doctor away!! Love, Pure Girl #health#picoftheday #cancer ... See MoreSee Less

🌼🌼🌼Flowers are not just beautiful, but a new study say they're very good for your health!! Just make sure there are Organic!! If not you'll be giving that person a bunch of herbicide, fungicides and pesticides which will deftly make them ill!! A study from the University of North Florida, has found that having flowers in one's home does a lot more than simply enhance your living room. The study cites a recent survey that found that 68 percent of people feel stress on a weekly basis, and another 32 percent feel stressed every single day. Women are especially affected, with one in four reporting that they feel stressed out multiple times a day. The two-month study of 170 women aged from 18 -65, notes that women who received flowers overwhelmingly reported that they improved their mood. Researchers believe that this is because "flowers provide the opportunity for nature contact, an established health-promoting environmental exposure." 🌼1.They felt less stressed out 🌼2.They boost there mood 🌼3.They bolster your relationships 🌼4.They boost your memory 🌼5.Some even help you sleep 🌼6.They actually help you physically heal 🌼7.They help you have better sex!!!
