I put this information together to help a friend who has severe migraines and then I thought it could help others too so …..here it is 🙂
According to a friend who is, amongst other things, a medical doctor, all “types” of migraines are due to the capillaries in the shoulders, neck and head contracting, therefore restricting blood flow to the head/brain, so they need to be relaxed (dilated).
When a doctor says your problem is due to your genes what it really means is that you are simply more susceptible that other people are.
Nutrients which dilate blood vessels and keep blood at the right consistency to flow well are in these nutrient supplements:-
Mineral Solutions(L. Arginine),Cell Protect (Ginko Biloba, vitamin E etc), Endurance (Cordyceps Sinensis, ginger etc) and Omega 3 (EPA, DHA and Vitamin E), Protozymes (probiotics).
(It isn’t necessary to take all of the above, although each one has many other benefits for health too. Contact me via Messenger from my FB profile page – https://www.facebook.com/june.backhouse – to arrange a free consultation.)
Things to avoid.
Red wine, cheese, red meat, all chocolate, white foods eg. Potato, anything made from white flour (including pasta) sugar, white rice; refined carbohydrates
Add into your diet.
Walnuts, peanuts, almonds, chicken, turkey, chick peas, lentils, (in fact all legumes) —-they contain the amino acid L. Arginine.
Seeds .. pumpkin, chia.
Fresh spinach, beetroot (raw in green juices and cooked), parsley, ginger root, a small amount of Cayenne pepper, garlic.
Brown rice, cooked green veg (eg. broccoli, spinach, chard, kale, Spring Greens).
Drink 2 litres of pure water each day.
Visit an osteopath.
A hot water bottle on neck or shoulders can also sometimes dilate/relax capillaries as can massaging to relax the muscles. 🙂

5 Ways Eating Fat Helps to Burn off Unwanted Body Fat
Fat Burns Fat.
Our bodies are fat-burning machines NOT carbohydrate-burning machines because originally our diet consisted of flesh, fruit, green plants and the occasional root and, contrary to what we have been brainwashed into believing, low-fat and fat-free diets have been injuring and slowly killing people for decades! They have fuelled the Obesity Pandemic.
Fat provides twice the energy per gram than carbohydrate or protein provides!
“No fat in the diet = no fuel to burn calories”.
The body requires energy to keep its metabolism properly functioning, and a 2007 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that consuming fatty acids can boost metabolic health.
Furthermore, anyone wanting to get rid of body fat stored around the belly, thighs, or buttocks (also called subcutaneous fat)—needs to eat fat because this “new” fat to help to break down the “old”, stored fat by activating fat burning pathways through the liver.
Fat isn’t the easiest nutrient to digest, so it sticks around in the digestive system for more time than many other nutrients.. That means you feel full longer, and you won’t feel the stomach-growling urge to raid the refrigerator after mealtime.
MUFAs(Monounsaturated fats) may also help stabilize blood sugar levels, according to Mayo Clinic.
Oils…. olive, peanut, sunflower and sesame
Nuts and seeds….. include almonds, peanuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, and pistachios. Nut butters such as peanut butter, almond butter and cashew butter.
Other Foods….. avocados and black or green olives.
In fact, diets with high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, a type of PUFA (Polyunsaturated fats) that the body can only acquire through food, create a greater sense of fullness both immediately following and two hours after dinner than do meals with low levels of the fatty acids, according to a 2008 study from University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain. It’s no surprise that dieters who consume moderate levels of fat are more likely to stick with their eating plans than dieters who consume low levels of fat.
Benefit = more weight removed!
Makes You Happy.
Eating yummy foods makes us happy, and low-fat versions just don’t do the trick for one surprising reason:
We’re programmed to like the taste of fat because the body knows it needs fat – so when fat is missing, we get bored with what we’re eating and eat “tasty food” which is full of nutrient-poor carbohydrates eg processed foods such as breads, biscuits, cakes and manufactured “meals”!
On an even happier fat note, omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA from fatty fish) can boost serotonin levels in the brain, helping to improve mood, increase motivation so you’re not tempted to eat high carbohydrate dishes like pizza and nutritionally devoid dishes.
Eat wild caught fish only. It’s a good idea to eat mainly small fatty fish like sardines, herring, and sild because larger fish like salmon, tuna, swordfish and mackerel (even wild caught) tend to contain pollutants like PCBs, dioxins and mercury which can accumulate in the body, so don’t eat them more than twice a week.
Eating good fats along with an effective exercise program can increase muscle and increasing muscle mass is vital to increasing metabolism and burning calories both in and out of the gym.
Muscle weighs more than body fat and this is why you should measure yourself not weigh yourself to check on progress!
In a 2011 study published in Clinical Science, researchers examined the effects of eight weeks of omega-3 supplementation in adults ages 25 to 45 and found that the fat increases protein concentration and the size of muscular cells in the body. Previous studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids stimulate muscle protein synthesis in older adults and can mediate muscle mass loss due to aging.
Fat Makes Food More Effective for You
Many nutrients are fat-soluble, meaning that the body can’t absorb them without fat and if your body isn’t absorbing nutrients properly, that can result in deficiencies in Vitamins A, D, E, and K, leading to dry skin, blindness, brittle bones, muscle pains, and abnormal blood clotting.
These vitamins are also vital to maintaining energy, focus, and muscle health, all of which contribute to a healthy weight.
Vitamin E, for example, is a powerful antioxidant and helps maintain your metabolism and, according to a clinical trial from the University of Minnesota Medical School, the body’s levels of vitamin D (from sunlight) predicts its ability to lose fat, especially in the abdominal region.
So while you enjoy your salad with nutrient-rich spinach, almonds, sunflower seeds, tomatoes, carrots and egg yolk, you really need to thank the olive oil and avocado for sending the salad’s vitamins your way.
I hope you enjoyed/found useful those 5 reasons we need fat to burn off unwanted fat…
These 5 are just a few of the many reasons we need EFAs.
Eating a natural, varied diet (a Rainbow Diet) is important but we have to remember that our food today is nutrient deficient because of:-
poor, worked-out soils;
chemical fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides
harvested before it’s ripe – marketed as “Ripen at Home”—except that to ripen means to becomes full of nutrients and that can only happen whilst part of the plant!!
picked ripe but then stored – on average for 6 months – so nutrients disappear.
Therefore it’s vital that we supplement our diet with nutritional supplements.
Challenge…..how to know which are effective and which are a waste of money!
In my experience, Modere are the best choice because for more than 30 years they have provided carefully formulated supplements containing therapeutic amounts of top class nutrients which I have seen bodies use extremely effectively, time and again; plus the safest, most effective personal care products which do not lead to a toxic body!
Why Modere Skin Care Products Really Are Skin CARE Products.
“Why is it that at 16, girls’ skin is better than boys’ skin but at 60, men’s skin is better than women’s skin?” Well the answer can often be found in the skin care and cosmetics that women use, where the ingredients can prematurely age the skin.
Until recently, men haven’t used them.
The Skin Cell Journey
It takes about 4 weeks for new skin cells to rise to the surface and by then they have less than 1% moisture left in them. The idea of skin care is to plump up these cells near the surface so that the skin looks smooth and firm.
The question is: “How is this usually done?”
When choosing skin care products we need to be aware of ingredients, such as propylene glycol, which block the skin’s matrix because, due to their molecular size, they sit on top of the skin like a plastic bag, preventing the skin breathing and getting rid of waste. This causes spots and sensitivity. (The skin is a major detox organ). In order to try and wash away this blockage, moisture is drawn up from live cells beneath, thus plumping up the top cells giving the skin a “healthier appearance”. What it is actually doing is damaging the newly formed skin cells = Aging them.
If you put a waterproof plaster on your hand and leave it overnight, when you remove it, your skin will be pink, moist and plump – the same effect!
Modere Skin Care does not do this.
Modere’s philosophy is to work on the 4th week area and try to retain 2% moisture. DOUBLE THE SKIN CELL MOISTURE.
Modere Skin Care products (like the rest of their products) are always based on the latest scientific research, using ingredients which make the products safe for us to use AND which are effective.
The molecular size of ingredients in all our Skin Care ranges is smaller than the molecular size of skin’s matrix, that is, less than 350. so…
Our cleansers penetrate the skin, gently washing away dirt and impurities from the matrix and the pores.Our clarifier gently removes dead cells from the surface without damaging the mantle of the skin.
Our carefully chosen moisturising ingredients actually enter the upper skin cells, practically doubling their moisture content. Our ranges also deliver nutrients and anti-oxidant protection into the cells along with SPF15 protection.
Modere Skin Care is designed to defend and enhance the health of the skin as well as improve its surface appearance.
Beauty Balance Brilliance
The Best of Science and the Best of Nature
Five Simple Steps
It really doesn’t have to be complicated. Our skin care can be broken down into five regimen steps.
Step 1- Cleanse
Whether removing your make-up or lifting the day’s accumulated dirt and impurities, cleansing is the essential start to your skin care regimen.
Eye Makeup Remover Duo Phase
For effortless makeup removal
This unique, liquid formula is perfectly crafted for powerful and thorough eye makeup removal. It provides an “oil phase” to gently dissolve waterproof eye makeup, and a “water phase” to eliminate water soluble eye makeup while conditioning eyelashes and surrounding skin. This mild formula effortlessly clears delicate skin of the most stubborn eye makeup and other residues, preparing it for effective cleaning.
The blue colour is not for visible effect. It comes from the copper sulphate whose purpose is to make the pH of the product the same pH as our tears so that the eye is protected.
There are 2 skin types — dry (mature) and normal/combination skin. Sensitive skin is not a “type”, it is damaged skin. Each cleanser is a mild formulation that respond to the skin’s cleansing needs. The cleanser for Normal skin accommodates a wide range of normal skin variations and preserves the skin’s delicate moisture balance to create a perfectly clean complexion ready for nourishment.
Step 2 – Exfoliate
Benefits gained by the removal of dead skin cells.
Washing and towelling removes most dead cells but not all and they stay on the skin’s surface. Light is reflected back from the surfaces of these dead cells in all directions so the complexion looks dull. When the skin is smooth, light reflects back smoothly in one direction only and the complexion looks radiant and glowing!
Can Men Benefit? Yes. These dead cells act like “speed bumps” to a man’s razor, quite often causing nicks and bleeding, blunting the razor. Use:- Cleanser/Clarifier — Shaving Cream —- Balm. The results are a smooth shave and the razor lasts longer!
A mild exfoliator that leaves skin smooth and luminous
Exfoliator is a mild exfoliator that gently sweeps away dead skin cells and surface impurities, leaving skin smooth and luminous. Featuring a unique blend of natural bamboo, jojoba beads, and prickly pear, this natural, new generation clarifier conditions, tones, and tightens pores, reorienting the complexion and rejuvenating skin, leaving it in a receptive, balanced state.
It does not peel off the top layer exposing the new, immature skin beneath.
Step 3 – Tone
Our Toner, Combination Skin is feather light, oil-free, and uses natural exotic plant extracts to bring uneven complexions into proper balance.
Effectively hydrates skin and balances the complexion.
Feather light formula won’t overwhelm spots prone to excess oil.
Natural plant extracts are gentle.
After moisturising (day and night) spray again and massage gently to carry the moisturiser deeper into the skin.
This luxuriously rich lotion was developed specifically for dry complexions. Packed with powerful proteins that deliver abundant moisture, and fortified with botanical oils and Chinese Skullcap extract, there’s no better way to pamper and restore hydration to troubled skin.
Ideal for dry complexions.
Intense moisturizer delivers vital hydration.
Combines botanical oils and Chinese Skullcap extract to soothe skin.
Step 4 – Target
We have 5 special formulations to help with specific needs. I shall add these later. Please check back.
Step 5 – Moisturise
After cleansing and clarifying the skin is now ready to be nourished with essential moisture which includes a strategic mix of vitamins, anti-oxidants and other valuable botanicals.
Day Cream and Day Lotion…. Protect AM
Moisture and protection for the skin’s daytime needs
There are moisturisers for each skin type. The lotions provide SPF15 for sun screen coverage offering UVA and UVB protection. and safeguards the skin from other environmental pollutants. Protect AM lotions provide SPF 15 offer moisture and protection for skin’s daytime needs. Featuring zinc oxide sunscreen, along with liposomes that assist with hydro protection, vitamins, and antioxidants, these finely crafted formulas defend skin against sun damage and other environmental factors while leaving skin smooth and touchable, as it repels daily environmental assaults while delivering protective compounds to the skin’s surface.
Night Cream…. Renew PM
Moisture and protection for skin’s night-time needs
Each of the two formulas provides the required balance, ample hydration, and moisture retention for the skin’s night-time needs. With a diverse selection of natural oils, vitamins, antioxidants,and essential fatty acids, these formulations act to revitalise skin overnight. Working in conjunction with anti-aging factors, they can decelerate the signs of aging and visibly rejuvenate the skin. These dynamic formulas reinvigorate tired-looking skin, returning it to a youthful glow with important botanical extracts that improve skin vitality while you sleep so your complexion appears rejuvenated and rested.
Last year I developed a problem bending my left knee whilst standing…I could feel and hear it grinding! A scan showed that I had worn away cartilage from the top of my shin bone.
I was most unhappy because it interfered with my dancing and my Yoga but I discovered a simple, inexpensive way to ease the problem!
Beef gelatine from the supermarket!
I use it in two ways.
Make a drink.
Dissolve a third of a sachet in about 3 inches of water (just off the boil) and drink it. (it tastes neither nasty nor nice!) then I use the same mug for my hot drink to ensure I also get the gelatine which has been left coating the sides.
I do this 2 or 3 times a day.
Make a jelly.
Steep 4 Clipper Green Tea bags in half a pint of near-boiling water. Steep them well.
Reheat the tea and dissolve 2 sachets of gelatine.
Squeeze 2 oranges and make up to half a pint with cold water.
Add this and the orange pulp when the tea has cooled.
I add some jelly to my fresh fruit and natural yoghurt breakfast and I can also eat it when I don’t have time to make the drink.
Some cartilage has regrown because I can bend quite a way before it starts to “catch”. There is no pain and I can do most of my Yoga postures again.
This gelatine contains Sulphite – which is quite useful because from sulphite, we make sulphate, which is invaluable. Sulphate is anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant. It is needed for making stomach acid and digestive enzymes, so that we can break down the food we eat into useful components. 🙂
Muscle Rub from Modere is also excellent at relieving pain in inflamed, swollen joints because it removes lactic acid from muscles and cools inflamation with peppermint. It isn’t merely a pain killer.
Wash hands after applying and keep away from eyes!
