The modern world is loud and proud about all of the new things it has to offer, but when it comes to preventative medicine, has science been able to replace the tried and tested remedies of the past?

Here are 5 Ancient Remedies that can help improve your health and general wellbeing. 

 

5 Ancient Health Remedies cayenne pepper

Cayenne

It took less than 50 years from the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus for the Cayenne pepper to spread across every continent of the world and be adopted into countless cultural cuisines and medicinal practices.

Excluding garlic, there isn’t a food on the planet that has as many health and nutritional benefits which are supported by over 3000 peer reviewed studies. From protecting you from heart disease to boosting your immune system, Cayenne does it all. However, the most popular medicinal use for Cayenne throughout history has been pain relief.

When combined with Olive Oil and Beeswax, Cayenne can be made into a salve that keeps for a long time and has natural healing and pain relief properties when applied to closed wounds.

 

5 Ancient Health Remedies blackberries

Blackberries

Aside from being a yummy staple in any good pastry chef’s kitchen, the blackberry has a long history of medicinal value throughout Europe. Its history dates back as early as 2,500 years ago and is an ideal food for anybody looking a natural and healthy remedy to ageing.

The blackberry contains hundreds of phytonutrients and phytochemicals that have immense anti-aging properties which help your body to detoxify and repair itself after a workout. Blackberries are also rich in tannins which reduce intestinal inflammation and reduce belly bloat, giving you that much desired trim belly. The blackberry also contains large amounts of Vitamin E, which assist in combating arthritis, chronic inflammation and other age-related illnesses.

We have only scratched the surface on the health points of blackberries but it’s easy as pie to obtain them all. Just add a cup to your morning breakfast to reap the benefits.

 

5 Ancient Health Remedies ginger

Ginger 

Ginger is a flowering plant from the jungles of Southeast Asia. Its “tubers” or “roots” are the part of the plant that have commonly been used in cooking and medicine for thousands of years.

The unique flavour of ginger comes from one of its natural oils called Gingerol. Research on Gingerol has shown it to have anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant, neuroprotective and gastroprotective properties.

Ginger does a lot to keep you healthy. It’s also an incredibly effective natural remedy for nausea so be sure to load up after a big night out by adding a little bit of ginger to your morning tea.

 

5 Ancient Health Remedies echinicea

Echinacea

What did the ancient indigenous peoples of North America take when they caught a cold? Unfortunately, they didn’t have access to Codral Cold and Flu as we do today. They did however have a secret weapon in the form of a flower called Echinacea.

Echinacea is a flowering plant in the daisy family. They are commonly called coneflowers and are found exclusively in the eastern and north America where they grow in dry wooded areas. Echinacea are famous for their natural flu fighting properties and their ability to strengthen your immune system.

The best part is you don’t have to book a long flight to North America next time you catch the flu. Echinacea extract is widely available in pill or gel form at most major pharmacies across Australia.

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

We understand how difficult it can be to prioritise your health, especially during the hustle and bustle of modern life. Fortunately, there are many ways you can improve your day-to-day health and well-being by incorporating Emu Spirit into your schedule.

Here are just a few…

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

A Drop in your Daily Diet

For many, breakfast is a luxury often missed, and while we don’t recommend skipping too many of them, we understand that it’s a symptom of a busy life. But just because we don’t have time to eat doesn’t mean we should completely ignore an opportunity to improve our gut health and digestive system.

Taking one or two Emu Oil Omega 369 Capsules on the way out the door in the mornings is a great way to reduce general inflammation in the digestive track and improve overall health, and it only takes a second of your time.

And for those breakfast aficionados, a couple drops of 100% Pure Oil of Emu in your yoghurt or cereal will greatly improve your heath by adding Omega 3, 6 and 9 to your meal without jeopardizing the flavour.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

Soothe Joints from Working from Home

For many, working from home became the silver lining of the Covid-19 pandemic. All at once, thousands of people across the country were able to show up to work in their pyjamas experiencing a form of liberation they’d previously only dreamed of. However, it didn’t take long to be made painfully clear to many that the couch isn’t exactly ergonomic.

Never fear! Office injuries such as general joint pain and repetitive strain injury (RSI) can be alleviated by applying emu oil to the sore area which will help reduce inflammation, stiffness and swelling, as well as help prevent scar tissue from developing within the joints.

Now you can cancel that trip to the physio and continue working in the comfort of your pyjamas.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

Massaging Muscles Post Workout

It’s unanimous amongst the experts. Daily exercise is just as important as a nutritional diet if you wish to stay in tip-top shape. Unfortunately, it’s quite normal to feel pain and soreness in your muscles after a tough workout. This has been coined “Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness” or “DOMS” by the professionals and it’s a result of small tearing in the muscle fibres.

Fortunately, due to emu oil’s deep penetrative and anti-inflammatory properties, massaging the sore areas of your muscles with 100% Pure Oil of Emu will accelerate the healing process and get you back in the gym before you know it.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life hair care

Hair and Scalp Care

For many people, the daily routine of hair and scalp care is an unconscious one. Shampoo, condition, rinse and dry. But there is so much more that can be done to protect your scalp and ensure your hair stays silky and smooth, and it only takes a couple more seconds of your time.

Emu oil is a major source of Omega 3, 6 and 9 which have been scientifically found to increase hair elasticity, nourish the hair follicles, prevent hair loss, stimulate hair growth and moisturise and improve dry and flaky scalps.  Simply massage 2-3 drops of Emu Spirit 100% pure emu oil into your scalp once you step foot out of the shower before drying your hair.

It won’t be long before you look back at your old hair-care routine as incomplete.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life pets

Pet Protection for Paw Pads, Coat and Joints

It’s not only human hair that benefits from emu oil. If your pet’s paw pads or coat is looking dull, brittle or flaky, it may be a good idea to apply a few drops to your hands and rub it into their coat thoroughly. Emu oil is 100% safe for pets (even if they lick it!) and can assist in treating a whole range of pet related problems such as healing skin irritation, reducing allergies and alleviating joint soreness. The best part is, you won’t have to worry about fighting your cuddly cat or pet pooch to accept Emu Oil as they generally love the smell.
