Children of Alcoholics and Sex Addiction

Sex addiction losses graphIf parents struggling with alcohol addiction need one more reason to get sober, here it is: Your children are at greater risk of becoming sex addicts.

A questionnaire sent to people in 12 step programs found that 45% of those attending sexual addiction support groups had at least one alcoholic parent. Among the general population, about 18% of adult Americans were raised by an alcoholic parent, but only 3 to 6 percent of Americans suffer from some form of sex addiction (predominantly men), according to the National Association of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity. So, it’s quite significant that sex addicts are 2.5 times more likely to have grown up with an alcoholic parent than the general population. There are a number of theories floating around as to why alcoholics are more likely to raise sexual compulsives. I have listed a few below:

5 Herbs that Heal UTI’s within Hours!

5 Herbs that Heal UTI’s within Hours!

Originally posted on Eat Beautiful:

Several years ago I had a few recurrent urinary tract infections.  They were an early warning sign of my leaky gut and interstitial cystitis (now healed).  I found several herbs that when steeped or boiled, depending on the nature of the herb, made a healing tea that gave me complete relief and healing within just a couple of hours.  This recipe worked every time with quick, powerful convincing evidence that herbs are worth learning about.  I never saw relief from other methods; and I am surprised these herbs haven’t gotten more press due to their effectiveness.  If you can’t buy bulk herbs locally where you live, I recommend ordering from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

7 cups filtered water

1 T. burdock root

1 T. dandelion root

1 T. hops

1 T. nettle leaf

1 T. plantain

Method

  1. Choose at least four of the herbs listed.  They…

Are GM Crops Eugenics by Stealth?

eugenics-editorialThe thing I find most disturbing about GMOs is the epicyte gene used in certain crops. What is an epicyte gene, you ask? The epicyte gene, named for the corporation that created it – Epicyte Pharmaceuticals, activates a rare class of antibodies that attack sperm. How did Epicyte Pharmaceuticals do this? By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these spermicidal antibodies. But unlike other forms of pharmaceutical birth control, once a man or woman has been affected, or infected, by the epicyte gene it is permanent. There is no known way to reverse it’s effect.

The Benefits of Ayurvedic Medicine: Agastya Rasayanam

Agasthya-RasayanamAgastya Rasayanam, also known as Agastya Haritaki (Hareetaki) Vasasyana, is an Ayurvedic medicine famously used to treat asthma and other chronic respiratory conditions. Agastya Rasayanam, which is comprised of multiple Ayurvedic herbs, including shati and bala, is also useful as a rejuvenative. In fact, the word rasayana means “rejuvenation” or “augmentation of rasa”.

Rasa is the vital fluid produced in the body by the digestion of food. Rasa is said to nourish the body, heightens one’s immunity and prolong life. In Ayurveda (the science of life), excessive work, intense stress, overindulging habits, and sensory overload cause a gradual depletion of our rasa, which is often the root cause of disease. If not addressed, rasa depletion may result in lowered vitality, lowered immunity, and chronic health issues.

A Simple Cure for Hemorrhoids

Internal and external hemorrhoids

Internal and external hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids have multiple causes, chief among them pregnancy, anal sex and hard, dry tools. And while Pregnancy hemorrhoids can be averted with a maternity support and anal sex hemorrhoids can be averted with proper training or abstinence, hard, dry stools require greater effort to prevent. However, the most important aspect of how hard, dry stools cause hemorrhoids – being forced out – is rarely, if ever, addressed; yet, this one act can lead to weeks of pain and frustration.
