Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Clinical Efficacy of Bitter Orange Aromatherapy for Premenstrual Syndrome

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects up to 40% of reproductive-age women worldwide. PMS symptoms include irritability, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, and bloating in the days before menstruation begins. Bitter orange (Citrus × Aurantium, Rutaceae) has traditionally been used as a carminative, antiemetic, antidepressant, anxiolytic, analgesic, and sedative and to treat headache, inflammation, insomnia, and uterine prolapse. Previous clinical studies have shown aromatherapy with essential oils (EO) from bitter orange flowers can reduce stress and menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women and reduce pain and anxiety in women in labor. The purpose of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was to evaluate the effects of bitter orange EO aromatherapy on PMS symptoms in young women.

The trial was conducted at the Shiraz University of Medical Sciences in Shiraz, Iran from March 2016 to February 2017 with female medical students from the university. Participants were included if they had moderate to severe PMS symptoms (scores…

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Cannabis and the Incidence of Psychotic Disorder – A Multi-cohort Study

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

While cannabis (Cannabis sativa, Cannabaceae) prohibition is being discarded by many nations, epidemiological studies and biological evidence continue to report links between its use and psychotic disorder (PD). A meta-analysis reported a dose-response link, with the highest risks of PD among people with heaviest cannabis use. It is unclear whether cannabis use affects the incidence of PD. It is often used by individuals to self-treat psychiatric symptoms, as is also seen with other drugs and alcohol.

The European Network of National Schizophrenia Networks Studying Gene-Environment Interactions (EU-GEI; May 1, 2010 – May 1, 2015) sought to identify genetic, clinical, and environmental factors involved in the development, severity, and outcome of psychosis. As part of the EU-GEI, the authors describe differences in cannabis use across sites, identify measures of use with the strongest impact on PD rates across sites (assuming causality), calculate the population attributable fraction (PAF) for patterns…

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Deep Breathing for Lung Cleansing

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Oxygen Helps With Lung Cleansing

Oxygen is, by far, the most vital component humans need to live. We can go weeks without food, days without water, but only a few minutes without air. To get the most out of oxygen, it’s imperative our lungs are functioning properly. Every cell in the human body requires oxygen and, although it seems like an autonomous function, deep breathing exercises can be done to help clear out toxins that may have built up in the lungs which can help improve lung performance and clear airways. Deep breathing gets more nourishing oxygen into your body. Blood that is rich in oxygen will help you feel better and give you more energy. Deep breathing also reaches the deepest depths of your lungs and helps to expel and break up residue.

Shallow Breathing vs. Deep Breathing

Although the average human lung capacity is about 6 liters of air, we…

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Lung Cleansing Benefits of Lungwort and Osha Root

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Lungwort, also known as lungwort leaf or Pulmonaria officinalis, is a natural plant that has been used around the world for a variety of respiratory ailments, including coughs, colds, bronchial detoxification and catarrhal problems. Lungwort is found in native damp habitats and coastal areas in Europe, Asia, North America, and Africa. Because it’s very sensitive to environmental toxins, the areas in which it is found are typically unpolluted old forests, and thus, the presence of lungwort is often a good indicator of an ecosystem’s health.

A Brief History of Lungwort

In the early 1600s, a theory known as the “Doctrine of Signatures” was widely accepted. Essentially the foundation of this practice was that plants resembling certain human physical attributes were believed to be beneficial to the part of the body they resembled. It was during this time that lungwort–which resembles the tissue inside the lungs–was discovered to be an…

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Boost Your Juice With Herbs

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Have you ever cracked open a fresh aloe plant and watched it ooze a clear, sticky gel? This is one of the earth’s natural juices that can be scraped from the inner plant and used externally to soothe inflamed skin.* Humans have been juicing plants for hundreds of years, traditionally by mashing them or with simple tools like a mortar and pestle.

In the last hundred years, juicing has evolved from human hands to high-powered machines. We understand why juicing is so popular, as it is a quick and tasty way to get an abundance of nourishing fruits and veggies in daily. However, we don’t always agree with the new jargon surrounding this age-old practice. Often, juicing is touted as a way to “cleanse” the body and rid it of toxins. We believe in the many benefits of juicing, and we believe that our bodies are intelligent— not inherently flawed…

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Herbs for Natural Detox – Traditional Medicinals – Herbal Wellness

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

As we shift from the holiday season, it is an excellent time to take a few days to simplify, clear and pave the way to receive the bounty of the new year. This can mean making space for creativity, resetting intentions, or cultivating healthy habits that support the body and mind. Symbolically, it is no surprise people gravitate towards “cleansing” and “detoxifying” during this time of year.

While “detoxing” may appear to be a modern-day answer to what seems like an increasingly toxic world, our ancestors have long incorporated bitter, nutritive herbs and roots into their diets. Modern science has revealed that many of these herbs – such as dandelion, burdock, nettle, Schisandra, and red clover, have a special affinity to support the natural function of our inherent detoxification systems.* Honoring this age-old wisdom, herbalists continue to utilize these herbs to support and nurture these processes rather than encouraging harsh…

Heart transplant patients inherit character traits from their donors. Science proves that there is a second brain in the heart sometimes called “the little brain” for emotion, premonition etc.

It’s Okay To Allow For Yourself

Everything you want is just an energy shift away. Shifting your mind from lack and limitations to absolute possibilities. There’s no reason why you can’t have what you want out of life. With enough faith, anything is possible for you. You must decide though. You must declare it now and never look back. Don’t try. Don’t think one day. Do it now. This is the most powerful thing you can do for yourself. We have a beautiful gift called the imagination to create from. Our mind allows us to see beyond current circumstances. We can either visualize in detail the experiences we want to have or fall trap to the experiences we already created. What’s in front of you isn’t real. It already happened. Don’t become too identified with it. You already created it. However, what you want to experience next is waiting for you to decide. Most people settle, because they forgot their real power. They settle out of fear that “this is it for me” or they assume life has nothing else to offer them. Being a victim of circumstances is giving up your creative mind power. Know what you want. Visualize it. Feel good…
