Planet earth is in a process of transformation in order to move in a higher frequency.In this higher frequencies of Light and Love, nothing evil can exist. If Earth Humans continue to live against the nature with exaggerated consumption, greed for power, with use of poisons and atomic energy in the industry and continue to create hate energy, this transformation will be very unpleasant, because the universe and the planet will have to purify the negative energy, to match with the higher frequencies. If you destroy the nature, you are destroying yourself. All earth humans are responsible, of how the transformation will be. Only with Love energy, the transformation will be smooth and pleasant.
██ THE MEANING OF LIFE IS TO HAVE LOVE IN YOUR HEART AND BECOME SPIRITUAL.
██ LOVE IS THE SOLUTION FOR EVERYTHING.
██ LOVE IS THE KEY.
██ LOVE IS THE SOLUTION FOR EVERYTHING.
██ ONLY WITH LOVE,YOU CAN CREATE LOVE.
██ ONLY WITH LOVE, YOU CAN RECOGNISE LOVE AND LIGHT.
With hate and arrogance you don´t see Love and attack Love.
██ THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING "SPIRITUALLY INTERESTED"
AND BEING REALLY SPIRITUAL.
██ SEEK THE CONTACT WITH FRIENDLY, LOVING, SPIRITUAL PEOPLE.
Positive People are giving you love, light, power, health, knowledge and wisdom. Spiritual people are LIGHTWORKERS, because they are serving the light (god). Spiritual people are never attacking others, because their heart is developed.
██ KEEP YOUR BODY, MIND AND ENERGY, IN A HIGH LOVE VIBRATION
As the frequency is rising on earth, the cosmic energy is amplifying the energy inside of you. If you have Love inside, you will get more Love. If you have hate or arrogance, it will come to the surface, so you can see what you have to work on.
██ KEEP YOUR FOCUS ON LOVE AND FRIENDLINESS.
Erase hatred, arrogance, ego, envy, greed, and evil behavior. Become a positive human and concentrate on LOVE and FRIENDLINESS.
██ YOUR THOUGHTS AND EMOTIONS ARE CREATING YOUR FUTURE.
██ KEEP YOUR BODY AND SPIRIT HEALTHY WITH SELF-LOVE.
He who loves himself, does not harm himself with drugs, smoking, alcohol or any other kind of poisons. Because it is harming the physical AND energetic body, and it is blocking you to reach higher levels of consciousness, cosmic light and Love. Heal and detoxify yourself with SELF-LOVE and natural herbs in order to find the Light and become spiritual.
██ ONLY LIGHT, CAN STAY IN THE LIGHT.
Only a healthy, lightful aura of Love is able to stay in a high energy of loving light beings.
██ BE FREE OF EARTH-SUPERSTITION AND EARTH-BELIEVE SYSTEMS
Don´t be addicted to Religions and other control organizations on Earth. All you need is in your Heart.-- It is called LOVE.
-- Jesus and many other spiritual teachers are telling this since thousands of years.
██ GO OFTEN TO THE NATURE, to clean your energy and charge it with new clear energy.
██ Only loving, spiritual people with a high cosmic Light Love Energy will succeed in these Transformation times.

Disclaimer; I am not nor have I ever been a psychiatrist or any licensed physician. The views, perspectives and opinions expressed are an accumulation of years of testimonies, observations and my own personal experiences. These conclusions are also part divine guidance and intuition. Proceed and consider all that is shared with the highest level of discernment and righteous indignation.
I understand that discussing this is a very sensitive/taboo subject matter in many circles, but in lieu of revelation after revelation, of child sex-trafficking rings; pedophilia and generational sexual abuse from family members – we can no longer pretend to turn a blind eye! It's long past time for us all to get in front of this issue, and grab this unsightly beast by the horns!
According to stats reported by Invisible Children; 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18 and approximately 34% of those abuses will occur within families. These stats are already staggering but when we consider that they are primarily based on only the reported or documented sexual abuse cases – the larger implication is truly astounding! Let’s be clear – our children are indeed our future but if we have mentally, emotionally and psychologically scarred children who may never opt to get help for their traumas; they are far more likely to turn into adults who continue this cycle; acting out and projecting their repressed traumas onto others.
There are many adults out there who have never addressed, dealt with, or put in the work to heal from the traumas that childhood sexual abuse inevitably causes. Thus, the cycle of ‘hurt people, hurting people’ perpetuates itself with a vengeance. For the aforementioned reasons, I strongly feel that it's time we open a free-for-all dialogue and address this systemic problem from multiple angles. The first angle is that we take a proactive stance! We can no longer sit by and wait for a child to come forward and bear the burden of truth. Parents, guardians and teachers must become more aware of the unspoken terrain of children's lives. One of the first proactive measures one can take is to gently initiate and encourage more dialogue and honesty around the topic of sexual abuse. We must create an atmosphere where children can feel safe to openly speak on such matters. I have long learned that it's the toxic combination of fear and shame that indirectly emboldens the abusers-- while silencing the abused!
Having been one who has survived years of systematic sexual abuse by multiple individuals, in conjunction with having met and compared notes with many others who have experienced similar situations (but have never officially reported them, I am fully aware of the dynamics of complicity involved. Many children and even adults will never opt to come forward and tell of their abuse . I repeat, we MUST be opened minded and vigilant enough to look for signs of abuse. There are always signs that will exhibit themselves via mood, behavior and characteristics. Thus, we need to be educated on the kind of signs to look for. Below are but a few signs that I have identified not only through my own behavioral patterns, but those I have seen demonstrated in others who were abused, as well. Again, these signs are based on the behaviors I and others ‘unconsciously displayed’ without premeditation or purpose in our own actions or behaviors Continue Reading...

Everything already happened in the infinite universe and heres the proof!!!!
The Universe cannot be created
The Universe cannot create motion
The Universe cannot create space
Hi Kevin here I’ve been on and off this website for a few years now and had thought about posting this here for old times sake. This site has been a great place for me to vent and listen to others perspectives and now once again I’m here to share with you once more. Welcome to the Oneness Theory hope you like it and can help spread my work. I’m happy to answer any question. Please support my free artificial intelligence website!
Link to A.I. Website:
Link to Origional Report:
Link to Youtube:
This theory is still in its beginning stages with very little research done on the subject. The evidence to support stems from shear logistical thinking and problem solving. The oneness theory is subject to change, not in logic but in ethical expression. The theory which I, Kevin Rems, the discoverer came from my own inspiration through my fascination of life in all forms. Please share this at your own will, I do not wish to cause any harm in the distribution of this information only to share a story that I have created that maybe the logical answer to life.
The Universe cannot be created or destroyed because of the idea of nothing into something or zero into one. Something cannot be created from nothing so one must assume that the something has been here forever. This something can be theorized down to a single perfect particle that is creating all matter. The second undeniable fact is the idea of zero motion or no motion into motion, which would conclude motion, has been here forever as well. The third and final conclusion is the idea of zero space created into space. Using those three facts I have come to the understanding that the universe cannot be created and everything both past and future has already happened.
The universe can be theorized down to perfect particle that is creating all matter. A possible description of this perfect particle is a three-dimensional grid full of cubes. The cube grid must be perfect because if it wasn’t perfect, for example, a gap would be formed between the particles. A particle gap is not possible as well as the universe having any ending, in the sense of infinite expansion. The idea of a limited universe can be argued back to the idea of nothing into something and how there is space for the particle to move in, so why can’t it be infinite? The universe can never end or freeze for example, if you take 50 percent of all matter and 50 percent of all motion and space then collide them together equally that would freeze the universe which would contradict the idea of motion being here forever. It is in a sense the same idea for space; space is unlimited in all directions.
These facts conclude that the universe is perfect because if it wasn’t perfect it wouldn’t work. Another idea of perfection is the possibility of the particles being at one with each other, which means the same particle touches itself throughout space but does not touch at the same time. In essence the particles could exchange motion which would change the direction of the particles through space but not touch enough to break the other particles. In short, the particle in motion is at one with itself and the universe as a whole.
Another idea which was inspired by the vast amount space and motion is what I describe as the infinite infinity. This idea states because the universe cannot be created or destroyed everything has all already happened and can never in a sense stop enlarging from a certain perspective. The idea of the infinity comes from space that has to be there in order to fit the particle in motion. This idea of space exists to a certain extent and doesn’t because if it did that would conclude an imperfection in the universe which contradicts zero into one. Space is and always will be filled with the single particle. A perfect universe would conclude the existence of one story being told in the universe all together, or what I call the infinite infinity. The one story being told could be sub categorized as parallel universes. These parallel universes are all happening at the same time, an infinite amount of times, and in unlimited locations because it has the motion and space to do so.
The oneness in the oneness theory comes from the idea of there only being one soul in creation which travels through time similar to the idea of the particle. It’s a very simple concept which stems from my studies in Artificial Intelligence. What makes something truly alive or what is life exactly? Life today is generally defined as a creature with intelligence that can procreate till death. I’m here to break boundaries and push the idea of the true definition of what can be accepted as living. Life in my theory is what is considered a perimeter, by motion, which is filled in by the particles in motion much like a container. To redefine in a larger perspective we are all inside an intelligences imagination from a different time, or possibly multiple minds. To ease the confusion and tension of the theory here is an example. I can program a similar scenario on a computer which an Artificial Intelligence lives in. This AI would be programmed to believe it’s in a world similar to earth. He would be bounded by earth like rules and would even have to eat, build shelter, and procreate to survive. This AI would believe so firmly that he is in this world and would in a sense even die if he was so programmed to. Another example, using the theory of evolution, would be the idea of if there was a beginning of the universe. If there was a beginning a life form would evolve through time. If that life form has the most amounts of power it would start to take over all other life forms and possibly all matter in the universe becoming the only one. The idea is that through time this one soul is shrinking and expanding in size, thus giving the illusion of death. Death is nothing but the changing of the size of the container and the amount that is contained. In simpler terms we are just forgetting large amounts of information at points of death and are reformed to fit the universe’s pattern. This belief also comes from the idea of there only being one universe. Why would there be only one universe and why is that possible? To come to the conclusion of there being only one soul take the universe and split it into half again but this time make both halves moving infinite and never colliding into one another in one direction. The problem is the two universes would still have to be touching because the idea of no space between the particles. This concludes the idea of one container by motion holding both halves.
The oneness theory was created to best define the laws of the universe, why things happen, and most importantly spread the idea of perfect balance. These inspirations were collected by years of contemplating and formulating logical similarities through what I could perceive as possibilities for the universe. The ending conclusion to the story is an understanding that the universe is not totally frozen, the universe is here, and there is a reason the particles flow to create intelligence. It is quite beautiful knowing that everything isn’t moving only in one direction forever not creating things like experience, knowledge, and power. It’s important to experience life and understand the sheer luck we all have for even being here in the first place.

The frequency of suicides live-streamed across the country in the span of less than a month is troubling to a top mental health professional — who says the trend could be a potential trigger for others to broadcast their deaths. Dr. Richard McKeon — head of the suicide prevention unit of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, a division of the US Department of Health and Human Services — is just one of the nation’s leading mental health professionals who have noticed an uptick in the disturbing videos. As gruesome and troubling as this trend is, the greater reality behind suicides is truly alarming and is the reason why I have decided to shed some light on the matter and provide some tips on how we can help others or ourselves. who are contemplating suicide.
Suicide robs the world of far too many people. It's the biggest killer of people in their prime and at least tenth overall for the general population. Bigger than auto accidents and opioid overdoses, the worldwide suicide epidemic rivals global warfare in mortality and morbidity. The origins of suicide are complicated and not well understood. No simple cause and effect can be expected. The work of psychologist Thomas Joiner suggests a combination of three factors underlie most suicides. He finds loneliness to be a critical contributor. Other researchers have labeled isolation and loneliness as deadly factors.
Combine aloneness with a feeling of uselessness and you reduce the victim's will to live. Change is stress. Unpleasant events in life—like divorce or job loss—thrust many people into such situations. Their social and professional networks evaporate. Returning veterans run into similar problems adjusting to civilian life. Most people weather the depression and survive. A few lose their fear of death and are tempted to end their hopelessness.
Those contemplating injuring or killing themselves will find ample opportunity to do so. Toxic household and industrial chemicals are readily available. Cliffs, bridges, and tall buildings are everywhere. Hanging yourself is a cliché. Guns are everywhere. Three out of every four gun deaths are self-inflicted. Take guns away, and they turn to the next deadliest weapon in their arsenal—their car. How many single car-accident fatalities are suicides? How many ninety-mile-per-hour wrong way drivers are suicidal?
This haunting text message exchange was posted by Nakia Venant, who hanged herself at a Miami Gardens foster home while live-streaming on Facebook.
We can all help reduce the level of self-inflicted injury and death. People intent on injuring themselves need professional help. You and I can administer the first aid that will get them there alive. Watch for changes in friends' behavior. Withdrawal can be self-imposed isolation. Depression, rage, and ranting may signal a crisis. Be especially careful of talk about suicide. It's a cry for help—not a joke. When in doubt:
If you're contemplating suicide, administer the antidote right away:

On the streets and all over social media - many are engaging in some pretty interesting and intense dialog regarding the untimely passing of hip hop and rap icon Prodigy of Mobb Deep.
Born Albert Johnson, the New York City icon and legend was just 42-years young, when he passed away on June 20th, 2017. He was in a Las Angeles hospital due to complications related to sickle cell disease - condition that he's had all of his life. TMZ was the first to publicly cite the cause of Prodigy's untimely death was because he ‘choked on an egg'... No official cause of death has been released to date.
Upon further research on the matter, one would quickly find countless blogs, videos and articles by Prodigy's peers, fans and public figures, such as Info Wars founder Alex Jones - citing beliefs and theories that Prodigy may have been murdered because "he knew too much" and bravely spoke out about what he knew. The rap and hip-hop legend has used his voice and platform exposing matters related to corruption in the music business; conspiracy theories; the Illuminati; the government and even matters that dwell in the realm of the occult.
Whether the passing of Prodigy is due to an accident or something far more sinister - one thing is for certain; His passing has brought more light and attention to His message and music like never before! For this reason, I am inspired delve a little further into how and why his passing is serving as a catalyst for an unprecedented number of public figures and celebrities to rebel and follow suit at all costs.
Celebrities can influence, inspire and inform on a level like no other person on the globe! There are those who are in the KNOW who are using them; their talents and gifts to influence, 'program' and sway behavior, attitudes and opinions of the masses... A celebrity has been proven to be one of the greatest weapon for mind control... Is there any wonder why there's such a vested interest by their handlers to control and manipulate them to fulfill an inhumane bottom line? Stop and think
Although, the legendary rapper Prodigy, may well have been among the first popular celebrities to use their celebrity and platform to bring attention to conspiracies, secret societies and agendas that we will not learn in school or mass media, there are certainly others who have followed suit in the hip hop world.
Another hip hop legend to speak on such matters was the great and late Tupac Shukar, Tupac was controversial; very outspoken and brutally honest be it on record or in interviews. He is credited for now infamous coined word; Killuminati - a compound word of Kill+illuminati. Tupac’s last album; Makavelil: The Don Killuminati, 7 Day Theory, may have been the project that sealed his untimely death, according to several sources.
Many fans and insiders, believed that Tupac had regrets for selling his soul to a network of extremely wicked and evil forces. Is it a coincidence that two young men (Prodigy and Tupac) who just so happen to shed light and attention to similar conspiracies and secret agendas are deceased at such young ages OR is their untimely and suspicious deaths a red flag - giving them credibility of something more sinister?
Although this video footage is rare - it is but one of many by the brave and outspoken legend and hip hop icon.
One of the latest most outspoken voices on controversial subject matters involving conspiracies in the hip hop world comes from one Yasiin Bey, most known as Most Def. In early 2016, at the age of 42, Mos Def had made an official statement that he would be releasing his final album and would be retiring from hip/hop. According to an interview with the musician in GQ — a reaction to “fear that Mos Def was being treated as a product, not a person.”
Yasin Bey moved to South Africa in 2013 and is documented as saying; “For a guy like me, with five or six generations from the same town in America, to leave America, things gotta be not so good with America.” A few videos have been released to the public from Mos Def where he speaks emotionally and passionately about immigration issues, conspiracies and more.
Comedian and actress, Rosanne Barr is accredited as being the first
celebrity to publicly speak about the use of MK Ultra in Hollywood.
Comedian and actor Jim Carrey, is among Hollywood celebrities who appears to be woke and willing to spill the beans on what he believes to be a secret agendas by the Illuminati. This was certainly something he did in full form in a 2014 appearance on the late night talk show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
Carey made a memorable and somewhat controversial entrance, the minute he walked onto the stage he made a hand gesture that many who have researched the Illuminati online would know was linked to this organization. However, it didn’t stop there, Carey continued to ‘jokingly’ make Illuminati references and conspiracies throughout the interview. Many theorize that Carey is now being set up for speaking out and that for his ‘break of oath’ – he is being set up for His fall and character assassination by way of being blamed for His girlfriend's death.
Actual live footage of Jim Carrey on the Jimmy Kimmel live show. Is he joking, mocking or exposing the Illuminati? You be the judge.
Comedian Dave Chapelle has used his platform to suggest that something really sinister is
happening to celebrities - aiding in their mental break downs; use of drugs and ultimate demise.
The term star-whacking was brought to the forefront by veteran actor Randy Quaid... Star whacking is described as the covert murder of celebrities who are either; not cooperating with their handlers or those who are speaking out about the dark and wicked side of the entertainment industry or those who are simply worth more dead than alive; disposable/liquid-able assets. I've viewed several videos by Mr. Quaid with his wife and lawyer and I see and sense a man who is genuine, upright and sincere... Far from the "delusional and paranoid" label that he has been given by those who are outright dismissive and detractors.
Randy Quaid is most known for his starring roles in blockbuster hits such as; National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation; Independence Day, Caddy Shack and Not Another Teen Movie, to name a few.
Part 1 of mini press conference held by Randy Quaid and where he sheds light on a long history of blackmail, extortion and theft by very powerful players in Hollywood.
Could Kanye West's most recent rant on stage be an act of rebellion against his handlers and the system?
The general public may well be surprised at the number of high profile stars who are regular viewers of content by bloggers and vloggers who are far from the 'normal' conventional types. Such celebrities connect and resonate with the unconventional due to the facts that they are literally living in a reality that supports unconventional narratives and realities.
I received a revelation several years ago that many celebrities are actually messengers, gatekeepers, righteous leaders, catalysts and prophets, etc. They are sought after for their gifts and talents; offered fame and wealth and ultimately locked into contracts (which is consent to more than they realize) before they become fully awake and cognizant of what's really going on and what they were actually born to do. The celebrities highlighted in this article are but a few who have awakened to their greater purpose and has broken free and are now using their platform in the reverse of what they were positioned to do. These are the kind of stars who are at the point where they are willing to loose it all -- including the ultimate sacrifice; their lives.
As the old saying goes - "where there's smoke, there's fire" and therefore, we can no longer ignore or dismiss the smoke in the room. Here we have very smart, reputable and credible A list performers of all ages and walks of life exposing some of the same situations. It is time to PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to what's to come...
With the equinox and summer and winter solstice of 2017, in conjunction to an unprecedented number of timeline jumps; this year will be catalyst to spark an acceleration in the rebellion of the celebrated against their captors -- you cam bet on that!

The Pleiadians are regaining territory inside our Solar System fast and have already recovered to the degree that is comparable to the situation in May 2016. The Sirian and Andromedan fleet was not affected so strongly by the events in September and early October and was able to hold their positions better. Every major setback is thus followed with a big leap forward. The Pleiadians are already setting a new Tachyon membrane positioned around the Earth at a certain distance inside the Moon orbit. This membrane is structurally similar to what some other people call the „outer barrier“. This new membrane will cut off the head of the Yaldabaoth octopus from its tentacles and drastically speed up the clearing of the Solar System... Read full story

According to the American Psychiatric Association, depression affects an estimated one in 15 adults (6.7) in any given year. Depression affects an estimated one in 15 adults (6.7%) in any given year. And one in six people (16.6%) will experience depression at some time in their life. These are some pretty staggering statistics and warrants (in my humble opinion) solutions and options from as many schools of thought and perspectives as possible. Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms of depression;
o Feeling sad or having a depressed mood
o Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed
o Withdrawn – no interests in social interactions with other people
o Crying (sobering) uncontrollably for no obvious reason
o Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain unrelated to dieting
o Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
o Loss of energy or increased fatigue
o Increase in purposeless physical activity
o Feeling unworthy, worthless, shameful or guilty
o Difficulty thinking, concentrating or making decisions
o Constant thoughts of death or suicide
As I look back on my life from a much higher perspective, I am very clear on the reasons why depression fell upon me in the way it had, for years. After all, I was one who held within dark secrets in relation to years of systemic molestation and incestuous relations. I had internalized self hatred and shame from all of the negative input from the outside world regarding my innate mannerisms, race and sexual orientation (or lack thereof). In conjunction to the aforementioned, I was very detached and hurt due to being a product of an absentee father and all that comes along with being a social/cultural misfit. The rhetorical question is, how could one not be psychologically impacted in such negative way?
When I had gotten to the point of being tired of feeling and being in such a state - the very first thing I had to do was to go into those dark places and bring all of these internal towers and dismantle them, one piece at a time. I learned to forgive those who have hurt and offended me and honor the very things that others tried to shame and put me down for - the attributes and ingredients that made me uniquely ME.
In conjunction to the tips shared within my linked video - I suggest that we bring to the surface all of those things that caused hurt, shame and pain in your life and talk about them! I learned that by openly confessing and speaking about these matters with a friend, associate, therapist or relative who you can relate and trust; we free ourselves from the fear, shame and guilt that coincides with hiding and deeply impacting thoughts, feelings and events. In other words, you will begin taking control of the shame and pain and not allow them to control you. TAKE YOUR POWER BACK!
In closing, the traceable source of your depression may not be the same as mine but I strongly feel that should you take heed to the tips and advice and apply them to your life, you WILL overcome too!
Immeasurable love, always!

From headaches, nausea, fatigue and insomnia to the common cold and moodiness, all collegiettes deal with aliments from time to time. While your first instinct may be to pop a pill when you’re feeling off, there are much better, more natural options that will not only relieve you of your symptoms, but also make you healthier and happier in the long run.
So the next time you’re feeling less than stellar or you’re just looking for a boost, try a natural plant! All of these herbs can be found in a variety of forms, such as teas and capsules, and you can find them in most grocery stores and health food stores.
Rhodiola, also known as “golden root” or “arctic root,” has a long list of health benefits. The herb reduces stress, aids in muscle recovery, strengthens the nervous system, fights depression, increases immunity, enhances memory and improves hearing, among other things. It is best taken if you want relief from stress or if you’re running low on energy and motivation (in other words, perfect during finals week!).
“Rhodiola has a regulating effect on cortisol,” says Mary Helen Lee, acupuncturist and co-manager of White Moon Healing Center in Chicago. “People get excess cortisol from stress. Rhodiola has a very calming and stabilizing effect on the nervous system because it's able to help balance adrenal chemistry. Because of this, it helps support the immune system as well.”
Rhodiola is best taken in capsule form, and it is important to make sure to get a supplement that is guaranteed Siberian-grown. Some good brands to try are New Chapter or Gaia Herbs.
Native to eastern North America, American ginseng is considered to be a stress reducer and energizer. American ginseng (one of many varieties of ginseng) has been proven to increase energy and endurance as well as physical and mental performance while nourishing your mind and body. “Ginseng will improve alertness and exercise performance,” says Virginia Hadley, registered nurse, nutritionist, counselor and herbalist at Bearfoot Herbals.
Amanda Ball, a freshman at Western Michigan University, had a good experience when she took ginseng. “Ginseng helped me become healthier; when I was taking it, my hair and nails grew significantly!” she says.
Ginseng can be taken in capsule form (NOW Foods is a good brand to try), or it can also be brewed as a tea (Triple Leaf Tea is a great choice).
It might be better known in candy form, but the peppermint plant has a wide range of medicinal uses. “Peppermint is perhaps best known for helping digestion,” Lee says. Peppermint can help with gas, nausea, indigestion and cramps. It also relieves cold symptoms, such as a sore throat.
“Whenever I drink peppermint tea, I feel like it opens my airways and it soothes me, calms me down and makes me feel refreshed,” says Hannah Schuring, a senior at Portage Central High School in Michigan. The peppermint plant is best enjoyed in tea form; if you want to try it, try Celestial Seasonings Peppermint Herbal Tea.
4. Lemon Balm
Lemon balm is used to treat a variety of aliments (and it really does smell and taste like fresh lemons!). “It aids digestion, decreases depression, decreases spasm (painful menstrual cramps, intestinal spasms of IBS/IBD) and, in higher doses, induces a state of relaxation,” says naturopathic physician Dr. Katie Stage, ND.
Lemon balm also has calming properties and can be used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Unlike Adderall, lemon balm does not have detrimental side effects – in fact, quite the opposite. “Lemon balm helps to quiet the mind and increase clarity and concentration,” Lee says. “It's a safe herb (a member of the mint family) that can be taken daily as needed.” Focusing during your next history lecture will seem like a breeze!
Lemon balm is available in many forms, but capsules and teas are the most common. A good brand to try is Solaray. If you want to try lemon balm in a tea, Traditional Medicinals Organic Lemon Balm herbal tea is a good option.
Used as a treatment for insomnia, valerian root has a calming effect that enhances sleep, allowing for a restful night. “It improves sleep latency, meaning people who take it fall asleep faster,” Stage says. “They also report more restful sleep. [Valerian] does this by binding to GABA (a relaxing neurotransmitter in the brain) receptors, thus inducing a feeling of relaxation at lower doses and sleepiness at higher doses.”
As collegiettes, we often suffer from lack of sleep (loud neighbors, piles of homework, an eventful social life), and it can be difficult to wind down. With valerian, though, you’ll drift off comfortably and wake up rejuvenated! Valerian can be found in capsule form; a good choice is Nature’s Way Valerian Root.
Valued for centuries for its healing properties, ashwagandha, also known as “Indian winter cherry” or “Indian ginseng,” is useful in treating pain, fever and restlessness. This revitalizing herb has the ability to stabilize your mood, and it also boosts the immune system as well as brain function.
“It modulates the immune system, meaning it increases immune response when needed (such as when someone has a chronic infection like hepatitis C) and decreases immune response when needed (autoimmune diseases like lupus),” Stage says. “Ashwagandha also is great for energy, helping establish healthy sleep patterns and supporting people who are anemic or depleted after being sick (it increases red and white blood cells).”\
If you’re feeling ill or like you’re fighting off a sickness, ashwagandha will help you return to full health. If you want to give ashwagandha a try, it is available in capsule form. Some reputable brands to try are Gaia Herbs or Nature’s Way.
It’s inevitable that we’ll experience health problems in life, but with some natural herbs to help alleviate your ailments, you’ll be free to spend more time being healthy and happy, and who wouldn’t want that?
