Is The “Zobo” Drink REALLY Healthy?

Do you know the Hibiscus flower? hibiscus-tea

Do you also know that the popular drink called “Zobo drink” is made from the Hibiscus flower?

And that is why this drink is also called the Hibiscus tea.

The word “Zobo” is culled from the name “Zoborodo”, which the northerners in Nigeria gave it.

And yes, the “Zobo” drink is a healthy and medicinal drink as well.

Research studies have shown that among the medicinal values that the “Zobo” drink offers is its ability to tackle high blood pressure.

Several studies have shown that drinking “Zobo” drink has almost the same effectiveness on hypertensive patients as the regular anti-hypertension drugs do.

Here Are Some of Such Research Studies…

Case Study #1

A group of Iranian scientists subjected 60 mildly hypertensive, but diabetic patients whose initial blood pressure readings were 134/80 to a twice daily in take of the Hibiscus tea over a 30 day period. And their blood pressure readings were taken on day 1, day 15, and finally on day 30, and it was discovered that on the 30th day, that their blood pressure readings went down to 112/70.

Though this study was conducted using two groups of people. One group was placed on Hibiscus tea, and the other group on black tea. It was discovered that those on black tea didn’t have as much positive effect on the BP level.

You can read the study yourself from here The Iranian Hibiscus Study on Hypertension.

Case Study #2

According to another authoritative health source, the WebMd, it says, drinking the Hibiscus tea (Zobo drink) 3 times daily helps to lower hypertension.

And for people who have been drinking this tea, it has lowered their systolic blood pressure by an average of 7 points.

A 7-point drop in blood pressure may not look like much, however, when sustained over time, research studies have shown that “even small changes in blood pressure when maintained over time… surely reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack”.

Case Study #3

Other research studies have also been conducted where the hibiscus tea is given to two groups of people. One group is on normal hypertensive drugs (Lisinopril, Zestril, Prinivil; 10 milligrams per day) and the other group on just 250 milligrams of hibiscus as a capsule.

At the end of the study, 4 weeks later, the hibiscus component has almost the same effects with high blood pressure medications. There was a 15 percent decrease in the group that took regular medications, while there was a 12 percent decrease in blood pressure reading among those taking hibiscus.

All of these research evidence is telling us that every hypertensive person can actually improve his/her condition by learning how to take the “Zobo” drink at least twice every day, and possibly replace this medications with this natural drink.

If you want to know whether this is effective, try doing that for a 30 days period, and I’m sure your blood pressure readings will be lowered, and since it has the same effects with the chemical drugs, there may be no need to continue taking the medication drugs every day.

However, caution should be exercised as every hypertensive patients as a matter of fact must have his blood pressure checked regularly. Having a home electronic blood pressure monitor may be the best to know whether to continue taking your hypertensive drugs or not after using the Hibiscus tea for a while.

Apart from helping to lower blood pressure, the “Zobo” drink also has other positive health effects.

Many have wondered why hibiscus or the “Zobo” drink lowers blood pressure successfully.

Well, according to research studies, it has been discovered that Hibiscus has a diuretic properties, that is ability to open arteries, and helps the body to slow the release of hormones that constricts blood vessels, this effect reduces the pressure exerted on the walls of blood vessels, by the action of the heart to pump blood to other parts of the body, which consequently leads to a lowering of blood pressure in hypertensive people.

Above all, the Hibiscus (Zobo) drink is a 100% natural plant with no additives, or chemicals that go through industrial process, so it is a safe alternative for health reasons.

For a hypertensive patient, it’s always a good idea to give it a try, and if possible lower the amount of medication drugs used daily.

The Truth About Fibroids!

For over 2 years, I have got requests upon requests to write on this very topic. I have been putting it off for a very long time.

Finally, I decided to create time to do some research on this most common health problems about women, and what I found is the result of this eye opening article.

Please read, digest the information, and if you or someone you know is affected by this disease, you can forward this piece to them so that they too can become as informed as you are. I’m sure you will enjoy it.

What Is a Fibroid?

uterinefibroidshowtheyformFibroids are known as non-cancerous growths found in or on the muscular wall of the womb.

These growths vary in sizes. Some fibroids can be as small as a pea, while others can be as large as a 7 or 8 month old foetus.

In other words, some women that have fibroids that size would be believed to be pregnant, when they are not.

Fibroids are given different names depending on where they grow inside a woman.

Types of Fibroids

  1. Fibroids that grow on the inside of the womb is called Submucosal fibroids.
  2. Fibroids that grows on the wall of the womb is called Intramural fibroids.
  3. Fibroids that grows on the outside of the womb is called Subserol fibroids.

Studies have shown that fibroids affect up to 20 percent of women above the age of 30. And women below the age of 20 hardly experience the problem of fibroid.

Fibroids seem to run in some families, but there is no research evidence that is currently available to prove that fibroid is genetic.

What Are The Symptoms?

Fibroids has one major symptom and that happens when a woman has heavy periods.

The heavy periods is caused by the growth of fibroids inside the womb and this disrupts the normal function of the menstrual flow.

Most women who have fibroids, experience no pain at all, whereas, others do. Usually, this pain is a slight pain caused because of the pressure exerted by the fibroid, which causes a dragging sensation in the abdomen.

In most cases, however, fibroids patient may not notice it, if the fibroid growth does not exert any pressure on the neighbouring organs.

And for these people, they can live with the fibroid for many years without problem.

Still in other cases, fibroids have caused infertility in women, and have been responsible for many miscarriages that happen among women. If a woman has fibroid, it may be difficult to maintain the growth of a baby till childbirth happens.

Miscarriages happen in women with fibroids because, these fibroid growth most times are so enlarged in the womb that it distorts the normal space that the baby occupies for growth.

Furthermore, because of this distortion, a fertilized egg will have problem with implantation on the walls or lining of the uterus because a fibroid is there already. When implantation fails to happen, miscarriage may result.

Other possible symptoms of fibroids can happen if the fibroid presses or exerts pressure on organs such as the bladder or bowel. In this situation because these organs are always “under pressure”, the sufferer will now experience frequent urination, constipation or even backache.

Some women may experience lower abdominal swelling, making it look as if they are in their early stage of pregnancy, whereas they’re not.

Causes and Side Effects of Fibroid

What exactly is responsible for the growth of Fibroids in the body? uterine_fibroids07

Currently doctors and scientists DO NOT know the exact causes of Uterine Fibroids. However, researches and clinical experiences point to just two factors that may be responsible.

1. Hereditary Factors

Experiences has shown in many clinical cases that fibroids run in families. Though this study do not have any research or scientific proof to back it up.

2. The Estrogen And Progesterone Hormones

There are two hormones that is responsible in stimulating the development of the uterine lining during each menstrual cycle in preparation for pregnancy.

These two hormones are called Estrogen and Progesterone. It appears these two hormones promote the growth of Fibroid in women when the presence of these hormones are more than normal in the body.

In other words there is an Estrogen Dominance in the body of victims because fibroids contain more estrogen and progesterone receptors than normal uterine muscles do.

Effects of Estrogen Dominance In The Body

When there is too much Estrogen in the body, beside the cause of Fibroids, it brings along with it the following health problems.

  • The formation of small cysts (tumor) inside the breasts
  • Risk of Cancer growth in the breast and other areas of the body
  • Hair loss
  • Acne
  • Infertility
  • Weight gain
  • Hormonal Imbalance

Story Of A Woman With Fibroid

There is a woman I used to know who had the problem of Fibroid for many years. Fortunately for the woman, her fibroid was discovered when she had her first child, a baby girl.

Doctors advised her to go for a surgery to remove the fibroid. But she was unwilling to do so. After the first child was born, having another child became a great problem.

Most pregnancies thereafter resulted to miscarriages. At the end of the day, the woman gave in to her doctors’ advise and went for a surgery.

The Fibroid was removed. About 18 months later, it was discovered that the fibroid has grown again, and she had another surgery.

Almost 2 years after the second surgery, yet another fibroid growth was noticed in her body.

She gave up trying to remove the fibroid via a surgery. Eventually, she used a special medication and melted away all the fibroid.

Almost 8 years after her first pregnancy, she conceived again, and this time, she was able to maintain the pregnancy – no miscarriage- till the baby was born.

And guess what?

It is a baby boy. More on this later in this article.

Treatment [Shrinking Fibroid Growth]

Fibroid can be treated in two ways, and we are going to look at them one by one.

Treatment #1 – Surgery

The quickest way to solve the problem of fibroid is through surgery.  However, there are a lot disadvantages going this route. fibroids-2

The experience of the woman I related about earlier actually had two major operations on fibroid, and after sometime, the fibroid came back.

Do you know why there is a high chance of the Fibroid to grow back after it has been removed from the body?

It is because surgery DO NOT treat the CAUSE of Fibroid. It only treats the symptoms and the manifestation of the disease. That is, cutting off the fibroid tissue.

The known cause of Fibroid is Estrogen Dominance. In other words, the only way to stop the growth of fibroid is to limit everything that causes the production of excess Estrogen hormones to be stored in the body.

The presence of excess estrogen hormones in the body feeds the growth of fibroid, meaning that, as long as this estrogen level is NOT MINIMIZED, the fibroid growth will continue.

And that also means, cutting off the fibroid via a surgery is only a temporary solution, not a permament one. It will grow back to replace the one cut off in a short time.

If you want to treat the problem of Fibroid, you need to eliminate what feeds the fibroid to grow. When that happens, if there are existing fibroids, they will starve, and gradually shrink to death.

Treatment #2 – Herbal Remedies

The next more reliable but slow method to actually shrink the fibroid to death is to use herbal remedies for 3 months.

Here are the things you need to do.

1. Strengthen Your Liver

The first thing you need to do to strengthen your liver is to detoxify your body from other contaminants. Your liver metabolizes the estrogen that is available in the body.

If the liver is overloaded and overworked, it will not be able to to metabolize the estrogen to the normal level responsible for pregnancy to occur or just to the normal level for a human body.

When I say you have to detoxify your body this time, I do not mean the 3 days detox, or 7 days detox or even 30 days detoxification. You will need to detoxify your body continuously for 90 days, thereafter you can continue like that once in a while  if you like.

Detoxification makes the liver stronger and helps it to work at optimal capacity.

And to do this, you will be needing the help of one of the trusted herbal products for fibroid. It’s called Fibrofit.

2. Decrease The Amount of Estrogen Hormones In Your Body

To control the amount of Estrogen in your body, you will need to watch what you eat. You must as a matter of fact, eliminate poor diet. Your food choices must be a selection of the most natural foods you can find.

And that means, you will avoid foods that could trigger the production of the hormone Estrogen.

And that also means, you will cut out foods like…

  • Diary foods
  • Alcohol
  • Completely eliminate sugar from your foods
  • Caffeine
  • All processed foods

Fill your diet with foods that could be found in nature unprocessed, like plenty greens, fruits in moderation, drink plenty of water.

3. Use Natural Dietary Supplements  

It is a known fact that we can not get all the nutrients we need in the body from the foods we eat, we need to supplement our diets to help us with adequate supply of these nutrients.

The herbal supplements that actually helped the woman that I told her story earlier, is called FibroFit.

This herbal supplement has a total of 5 individual products, each one plays a vital role in helping you to shrink the fibroid growth available in the body.

And they do this by helping in the metabolism of the hormone Estrogen and with the assistance of a cleaned or detoxified Liver, the right quantities of this hormone is maintained resulting in the shrinking of the fibroid over a few months period. It is suggested you use it for 3 months for maximum result.

You will start noticing visible signs of your health improving from the second week of using FibroFit.

If you need FibroFit, you can get it by clicking here. Get FibroFit Here!

When you endeavour to treat [shrink] fibroid using natural method, you will start noticing changes in your body from the second week. Your fibroids will shrink month by month and you will find out that your menstrual cycles continue to improve as each month passes by.

Your life will improve, and your energy levels will rise as your body is restored.

If you contemplate surgery, I think you should first try this option for 3 months, go back to the hospital to check if the fibroid is still the same or not, before finally deciding.

Whatever you do, let consistency be your keyword when making these life changes so that your body will remain a healthy and unfriendly environment for fibroid growth to happen.

Infertility In Women And Possible Solution!

Today’s article is a little off the theme of this blog. However, since over 79% of my readers are made up of women, some of who have asked me countless times to write on this topic, I have decided to do so.

fertilityMoreso, obesity is one of the reasons why conception may not happen in some marriages, so I feel this topic is also an important health related issue that must be addressed.

In many homes today, the problem of conceiving a child is becoming one of the fastest growing trends in Nigeria and elsewhere.

The problem is becoming a plague because there is an alarming statistic of this everywhere you look around.

In Nigeria, according to Medical World, between 20 to 25 percent of married couples are unable to conceive within the first or second year of marriage.

And that is why about 40 to 45 percent of all consultations done in gynaecological clinics are infertility related.

In the U.S, it follow a similar trend…

One in every four U.S couples has infertility problems. 40 percent of this is due to female factors, and another 40 percent due to male factors, while the rest 20 percent is due to a combination of both causes.

So you can see, that this is a prevalent problem indeed.

Now the question is…

What Exactly Is Infertility?

Infertility is defined as the inability of a woman to become pregnant after a year or more of sperm insemination or well-timed, unprotected vaginal intercourse.

Infertility may be a temporary or a permanent condition; this depends on the available treatments, the cause, and the fertility of the partner at any particular point in time.

In general, infertility is seen or known as a “woman’s problem”. The reality is, the problem is both ways. If a couple is having problem with conception, the fastest way to solve it is to have both the man and woman evaluated, and treated because the problem could be from any one of them or both of them.

The reason is because conception depends on the following factors…

  • For conception to happen, the man must produce a healthy spam, and the woman a healthy egg.
  • The sperm’s ability to reach the egg after intercourse
  • The sperm’s ability to fertilize the egg when they meet
  • If the fallopian tubes are not blocked, access to the egg by the sperm is enhanced
  • The ability of the fertilized eggs to become implanted in the uterus.

Infertility Comes In Different Forms

  1. Primary Infertility is for women who have never become pregnant in their lives
  2. Secondary infertility is for women who have given birth the first time, but having problem with conceiving again.
  3. Infertility Miscarriages. Recurrent Miscarriage is for women who experience two or more successive miscarriages.

What Are The Causes Of Infertility?

Here are some of the possible causes of Infertility

  • Chronic Illnesses and their associated treatments
  • Diabetes
  • Antidepressant drugs could lead to irregular menstrual cycles
  • Treatments or drugs for hypertension could cause male infertility
  • Low sperm count, low quality sperm could be caused from various factors
  • Cancer treatments, radiation therapy near reproductive organs could make them become infertile.
  • Sexually transmitted diseases could cause blockage of the fallopian tube and prevent access to entry of the sperm.
  • Uterine fibroid

In men sometimes, the problem of infertility is caused by so many factors.

Sometimes, a man is born with problems affecting his sperms, and he will have problem with producing quality sperm that can impregnate a woman.

Some other time, this problems could be caused because of injury or illness.

In general there are certain risk factors, or things that we do everyday that could cause infertility in marriages.

Here are some of them…

  • Tobacco smoking
  • Stress
  • Poor diet
  • Alcohol
  • Being overweight or underweight
  • Cancer
  • Environmental toxins, pesticides and lead
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Ill-health that causes hormonal changes in women
  • Medications for certain illness
  • Cancer radiation treatment and chemotherapy
  • Aging

What You Can Do About Infertility!

Most of the health problems we have (Infertility inclusive), is due to what we eat or do. It is also a known fact that we can not get all the nutrients we need to be healthy in the foods we eat.

Therefore, we need food supplementation to help us because food is medicine on its own.

One very good food supplement that a couple suffering from the problems of infertility can use is “Fertility Boost”.

This product helps the woman especially, and many women who used it have seen serious changes, and conception has happened.

You need to supplement your normal foods with this powerful all natural product to help you increase your chance of conception.

1. Lose Weight To Booster Fertility For Women

If you want to increase your chance of conception, you need to lose weight as soon as you can. The reason is body fat produces the Estrogen hormone, and too much Estrogen in the body impairs your ability to conceive.

Being too thin could also cause infertility because without enough body fat, you may not be able to ovulate normally.

And if you want to lose weight quickly to increase your chance of conception, you may need the Clean-9 product to help you achieve this in record time.

2. Supplementation For The Man

The man should ensure that he protects his sperm by using a regular dose of Vitamin C twice daily. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that work by blocking off the action of free radicals that causes cell damage to the body.

To enhance fertility greatly, the man also needs, just like the woman a fertility product. This time around, he could use “VITOFIT For Men”. This one is a 100% natural supplement for sexual health.

“VITOFIT For Men” helps in addition to boosting fertility in men, it helps the man to maintain stamina, prevent fatigue during sex, promote libido, sexual potency and energy, increase sperm count, and improve a healthy prostrate condition.

3. Time Your Fertile Periods And Conceive

Conception happens during the most fertile days of the woman, and if the man has a healthy sexual state, conception could happen if sexual intercourse takes place.

It’s important that the woman know how to calculate her fertile days if she has regular ovulation which supplementation can help achieve, that way the most fertile days for conception can be determined.

If you’re really interested in solving the problem of infertility, it’s vital that you invest in a quality supplements, because infertility in men and women may be linked to nutrient deficiency.

Bear in mind that it takes a minimum of 3 months for immature eggs in the ovaries to mature enough to be released during ovulation in women. For the men, it takes about 3 months for the sperm cells to be fully matured and to provide quality sperm, quality supplements are needed during this time period.

And those quality supplements can be found in the “Fertility Booster” for women, and “VITOFIT For Men”, both of which you can order immediately and have it delivered to you in days.

Above all and ultimately, I believe in God, and making the issue of infertility a matter of prayer is very important, as the source of life is from the Almighty One above. [Personal opinion]

7 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Daily!

In recent times, I’m sure you have been hearing of people who just developed cancerous diseases just like that.

Some have cancer of the lungs, testicle, blood etc.

In fact, one of the current diseases that claim the majority of lives in our time is Cancer. The reality is, cancer can be prevented or avoided.

However, in most cases there are circumstances that makes it extremely difficult to avoid the threat of cancer. And such conditions or circumstances comes from the foods we eat every day.

Eating some of these foods on a daily basis increases our chances of acquiring this deadly disease.

The truth is…

Most people simply DO NOT pay attention at the processes that goes into the production of the foods they consume.

And this can be an unhealthy practice if attention is not given in these areas, and of course negligence could result to getting the dreaded disease, Cancer.

Here is a list of some of the foods that could cause one to get the Cancer disease.

1. Canned Tomatoes

canned-tomatoesI know this may sound hard to believe, possibly because we consume lots of canned tomatoes in preparing stews.

However, I want you to look at the packaging and how this can affect every consumer of the canned tomatoes.

Every canned food is a cause for concern, however canned tomatoes appears to be the worst.

Here’s the reason…

The internal lining in cans used in packaging the tomatoes, is made from a chemical known as bisphenol-A or BPA. This is a very toxic chemical to the human body, and this can speed up the growth of cancerous cells.

However, tomatoes tend to be exceptionally dangerous when packaged in these cans, because tomatoes have high levels of acidity. This acidity in tomatoes when in contact with the lining (the BPA chemical) of the Tomato Can, can cause it to leech the BPA chemical into the tomato paste itself.

And that means every time you eat a Can of tomatoes, there’s always a chance that this toxic chemical is in the food you eat.

Currently, there are no NAFDAC laws requiring that companies provide a label of the components used in packaging canned or packaged foods.

If you want to avoid these cancer causing chemicals present in canned tomatoes, it’s always a better choice to either purchase fresh tomatoes or if you need processed tomatoes, go for the ones in bottles or sachets.

These are safer alternatives.

2. White Flour

Most of the processed foods you see in fast food joints are made from refined white flour.

Foods like Sausage rolls, egg-roll, meatpie, fishpie, buns, chin-chin etc are all products of white flour. white-flour

The main concern with refined floor is the excess carbohydrate that it has.

Do you know that a study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Mile Markers, and Prevention discovered that refined carbohydrates were linked to a 220 percent increase in breast cancer among women.

Rapid rise in blood sugar levels fuels the growth of cancerous cells and its spread as well.

Additionally, during the industrial production of refined white flour, the mills that bleach this flour uses a chemical called Chlorine gas.

This Chlorine gas is a dangerous irritant that is unsafe to inhale and can be fatal when inhaled in large quantities.

Cancerous cells or tumors feed on sugars within the bloodstream which is a by product of refined carbohydrates such as white flour. When you avoid such foods, you can actually starve these cancerous cells to death, and that would mean killing the chance of cancer growth in the body.

3. Potatoe Chips

Potatoe chips is the favourite snack for a lot of people. More especially, when you want to enjoy a nice movie, it’s so interesting to relax with it while watching the TV.
