HEALTH

This is a recipe for a great, metabolism-boosting drink. It’s pretty good, and it’s supposed to boost your metabolism by 12% after just one cup! All you need is 8 cups of bhealthrewed green tea, 1 tangerine sliced (I didn’t have one/they weren’t in season so I used a grapefruit), and a handful of mint leaves. Mix it all together and keep it in a large pitcher in the fridge. Drink 1 pitcher everyday throughout the day and it supposedly helps to keep up your metabolism! This is Dr Oz’s very own recipe he calls the Tangerine Weight-orade, it’s pretty good (much more flavourful than drinking 2 litres of plain water) and has so many benefits. It’s ALL natural!

I swear every time I check my emails I’ve got at least 1 telling me what “Doctor’s” have proven to be the number 1 weight loss solution!  Or that one “strange trick” that makes you lose 1 lb of belly fat a day?  Well, I don’t always believe everything I read, so sometimes it’s nice to just try it for yourself!  Or sometimes you just want to read the review of someone who’s already gone through the process 😉 … which is where I come in!

HEALTH – THE NETI POT

Maybe you’ve heard of the neti pot, healthmaybe not, but it’s basically this little teapot thing that you use to pour a warm water/salt solution through your nostrils to clear out your sinuses.  You may have seen it lately featured on Dr. OZ or Oprah, but it’s been around for centuries as part of a yoga medical tradition.  You can buy a Neti Pot at your local drug store, they’re not necessarily cheap (about $20 on average), but they work wonders.  Continue reading
