The habit of smoking contributes to many diseases and health problems:
- Cigarette smoking was first identified as a risk factor for osteoporosis decades ago. Studies have shown a direct relationship between tobacco use and decreased bone density.
- A recent study shows that smokers will have increased bone loss and decreased calcium absorption.
- This was a three year study that used over 400 participants
- The results suggest that smoking accelerates bone loss from the femoral neck and total body and that less efficient calcium absorption may be one contributing factor. (PubMed.gov Article)
- Other studies show that cigarettes cause a prompt transient hypercalcemia – or high content of calcium in the blood, which suggests that smoking may be associated with rapid calcium loss from the bones.
- Still another study indicates that parathyroid hormones are reduced in young adult smokers.
- “In this generally healthy sample of black and white, young adult men and women, we observed that PTH concentration was lowest in current smokers.” (Natiuonal Library of Medicine Article)
We all know that the addictive habit of smoking is bad for general health and well being.
Below are some herbs that supplement health and well being:
- The herb Mullein has been cultivated in Scotland and England for centuries as a medicinal herb for respiratory issues like coughs, lung congestion, bronchitis and nasal congestion.
- Mullein contains a good amount of potassium and calcium phosphate.
- ·These two organic salts are essential for rebuilding tissue, nervous system function, bone structure and in maintaining general health and well-being.
- Mullein leaves and flowers are classified in traditional herbal literature as expectorants (promotes the discharge of mucus) and demulcents (soothes irritated mucous membranes). Historically, mullein has been used by herbalists as a remedy for the respiratory tract, particularly in cases of irritating coughs with bronchial congestion.
- Mullein is an excellent herb for the respiratory system, and has been known as an astringent, which opens air passages allowing the person to breathe more freely.
- Mullein is known by other names in other ancient cultures. The people of Rome and Ireland called it “lungwort” because of its use to cure lung disease in both humans and livestock (Muenscher, 1935; DeBray, 1978).
- “Mullein contains approximately 3% mucilage and small amounts of saponins and tannins. The mucilaginous constituents are thought to be responsible for the soothing actions on mucous membranes. The saponins may be responsible for the expectorant actions of mullein.” University of Michigan Medical Health Article
- The traditional uses of Echinacea started in North America with the Native Americans. They use it for cuts, burs, stomach issues and as a curative for colds and flu’s. Echinacea and many constituents are known, such as polysaccharides, echinacoside, cichoric acid, ketoalkenes and alkylamides. Currently the homeopathic and alternative medicine groups use the extracts because they seem to exhibit immunostimulant properties. Echinacea is now mainly used in the prophylaxis and therapy of colds, flu and septic complaints.
- Historical Uses – Valerian has been used as a medicinal herb since at least the time of ancient Greece and Rome. Its therapeutic uses were described by Hippocrates, and in the 2nd century, Galen prescribed valerian for insomnia. In the 16th century, it was used to treat nervousness, trembling, headaches, and heart palpitations.
- The Native Americans have used chaparral herb for many internal body malfunctions as well as for rash and acne-type skin eruptions, for hundreds of years. Chaparral has antibiotic and antiseptic properties along with immune stimulating substances.
- Exactly how it works is open to debate, however, most credit one of the main active components of chaparral, nordihydroguaiaretic acid, or NDGA, as a key factor.
- NDGA has antioxidant properties. The plant also contains lignans that give it healing and anti-aging properties.
- Some other traditional claims are that there are anti-microbial properties too. Although this is subject to review and more studies. Herbalists have used Chaparral in blood cleansing formulas because of the anti-oxidant properties.
