Teas That Melt Fat

Teas That Melt Fat

Think of your body as teapot on the stove and the water inside as your belly fat. Chances are the pot is sitting there over a low flame, not doing much of anything. The water inside may be warm, but it’s not boiling. If you want the pot to whistle—and attract a few whistles yourself—you need to crank up the heat.
Well, that’s exactly what will happen if you take that teapot from metaphor to reality. Tea—at least, certain types of tea—can rev up your body’s ability to melt fat as quickly and easily as turning a stove from low to high. New research, included in my book Zero Belly Diet, reveals that tea can reset your internal thermometer to increase fat burn by up to 10 percent without exercising, or dieting, or sitting in a sauna dreaming about a Nestea plunge.
Why not give your body every advantage it can get in the battle against fat? Here are the five brews to start sipping for a slimmer, sleeker, more efficient fat-burning you.
FAT-MELTER #5
White Tea: Breaks down stored fat
We like: Twinings, The Republic of Tea, Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime
Think of white tea as Spanx in a cup. It actually works with your body in four different ways to promote fat-burning: It blocks the formation of new fat cells while simultaneously boosting lipolysis, the body’s process of breaking down stored fat, according to a study published in the journal Nutrition and Metabolism. Another group of researchers found that the tea is also a rich source of catechins, a type of antioxidant that triggers the release of fat from the cells and—bonus!—helps speed the liver’s ability to turn fat into energy. Brew this and burn fat.
FAT-MELTER #4
Barberry: Blocks fat cells from growing
We like: TerraVita, TeaHaven
The stem, fruit and root bark of the barberry shrub contains berberine–a powerful, naturally occurring, fat-frying chemical. A study conducted by Chinese researchers revealed that berberine can prevent weight gain and the development of insulin resistance in rats consuming a high-fat diet. Previous studies have also found that consuming the plant can boost energy expenditure and help decrease the number of receptors on the surface of fat cells, making them less apt to absorb incoming sources of flubber. Pair it with this definitive plan of 14 ways to turn on your get-lean genes to slim down fast.
FAT-MELTER #3
Pu-erh Tea: Reduces belly flab
We like: Numi Organic Tea, Uncle Lee’s Tea
This fermented Chinese tea might do to your fat cells what the New England Patriots allegedly do to their footballs—deflate them! To discover the brew’s fat-crusading powers, Chinese researchers fed groups of rats varying diets over a two-month period. Those who had a high-fat diet while also receiving pu-erh tea extract had lower levels of fat in their blood and lower levels of belly fat than those who did not. While the effects aren’t proven in humans, this tea has true fat-blasting potential. Sip a cup in the morning, and get even skinnier with the 8 ways to lose weight before noon.
FAT-MELTER #2
Oolong Tea: Burns a pound a week
We like: Bigelow, Stash
This antioxidant-rich traditional Chinese drink not only helps keep cholesterol levels in check and aids digestion, it can also help rev up your metabolism. Like green tea, oolong is also packed with catechins, which boost weight loss efforts by improving the body’s ability to metabolise fat. A six-week Chinese study found that participants who regularly sipped the brew lost a pound a week! And burn, baby, burn with the essential 6 quick ways to boost your metabolism.
FAT-MELTER #1
Rooibos: Cuts new fat cell growth
We like: Celestial Seasonings, Teavana
This red, naturally sweet tea made from the leaves of the Rooibos bush are powerful fat-melters. According to South African researchers, polyphenols and flavonoids found in the plant inhibits adipogenesis—the formation of new fat cells—by as much as 22 percent. The chemicals also aid fat metabolism. Sip this brew to help burn that stubborn bit of chub clinging to your middle, no diet necessary.

How to Treat Gum Infection (Gingivitis) Naturally

How to Treat Gum Infection (Gingivitis) Naturally


Gingivitis is inflammation of the gum tissue and is one of the most common diseases among the population. This is actually a real epidemic – about 95% of the population suffers from periodontal disease of some degree during their lifetime. The source of the infection is bacteria that inhabit the oral cavity, infect the teeth (plaque), hardened and become tartar.
Gingivitis is characterized by redness and swelling in the gum tissue, bleeding while brushing the teeth, tenderness or pain in the gums, a bad taste in the mouth, bad breath, formation of pus between the teeth and gums and more.
Chronic gingivitis can lead to periodontitis, which is more severe gingivitis that can lead to teeth loss and receding gums. In addition, it was found that prolonged inflammation and gum infection increase the risk of atherosclerosis, diabetes, heart attacks, heart disease, stroke, cancer, premature births and miscarriages.
How to treat the infection?
To ensure healthy teeth and gums and to prevent gingivitis or treat it after it appeared, it is important to get rid of the bacteria that cause the inflammation, maintain high oral hygiene level and treat gum problems as soon as you notice the first symptoms.

Natural remedies for gingivitis

Saline solution
Dissolve a teaspoon of salt in ½ cup warm water, mix and rinse your mouth well with the solution for about a minute. It is recommended to repeat the treatment several times a day.
Aloe vera
Aloe vera has many healing properties. Similar to its use on skin, aloe vera is used to cleanse and soothe teeth and gums. Apply a small amount of aloe vera with your finger on the affected area. You can use natural aloe vera gel that can be purchased at any pharmacy or the aloe vera plant itself if you have it on hand. Aloe vera is a common medicinal herb and is useful for other ailments. If you want to learn more about aloe vera as well as other herbs, you can find more useful information in my e-book the Herbal Remedies Guide. This guide will teach you how to treat common ailments using herbs.
Sage
Sage is an effective anti-bacterial herb used to treat gingivitis. Brew some fresh sage leaves in a glass of boiling water for about 10 minutes, let it cool off and gurgled the infusion around your mouth 2-3 times a day. Alternatively, rub sage leaf on the gums and focus on the area of ​​the inflammation. See also here how to make sage and sea salt tooth powder.
Raw honey
Honey has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Apply a little bit of natural raw honey directly on the infection. You may also be interested to read my article about 13 ways to use honey for your health.
Garlic
Garlic is known to have antibiotic effects. Crush one or two cloves of garlic, and place them on the infected gums. If you have rock salt, add a little bit of it to the crushed garlic, and then place this mixture on the infected gums.
Coconut oil / Vitamin E oil / Olive oil / Neem oil
Virgin coconut oil has anti-bacterial properties and can be used to treat a lot of skin infections. Vitamin E oil can do a lot of the same things. Rub some virgin coconut oil, or vitamin E oil on your gums. Neem bark and its leaves have active ingredients that has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It strengthens the immune system and the body’s resistance to infections. You can also use olive oil that is anti-inflammatory due to many of its healthy components. Take one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and swish it around your mouth for a few minutes and then spit. Don’t swallow it as it contains toxins from the mouth. You may also apply it to gums and rub or massage the gums gently. For best results, repeat the process three times a day.
Clove / Tea tree essential oil
When you do the oil treatment above, you can add a drop or two of clove oil or tea tree oil to the oil you are using. Tea tree oil is highly antiseptic, and clove oil can fight infections as well. It has antibacterial properties, and is very effective in treating gum disease. If you are interested to learn more about essential oils you can find useful information in my e-book Magical Aromatherapy. This book will help you to discover the power of essential oils and the most effective ways to use them.
Chamomile / Ginger / Cinnamon tea
Ginger improves inflammatory condition, and chamomile may help soothe mouth inflammations and keep gums healthy. Cinnamon has strong anti-bacterial effects and has been known to treat infections. To relieve pain and help in the heeling process drink a lot of these teas. Make a tea, take a sip and pass on the gums. You can also gargle the tea as a mouthwash.
Apple cider vinegar + Baking soda
Add one tablespoonful of apple cider vinegar to a cup of water and use it as a rinse after brushing with baking soda. Drink the rest of the water to build up your system and fight gum disease from the inside. Don’t drink undiluted apple cider vinegar as it can erode tooth enamel.
Strawberries + Lemon juice
Strawberries are known to remove tartar due to their acid content. Apart from making the teeth cleaner and whiter, strawberries are also responsible for maintaining good health of gums. Strawberries contain a large amount of vitamin C that helps fight diseases and treat infections. Lemon juice has been known to treat infections too. Place about 3-4 strawberries in a food processor and add to it a tablespoon of organic lemon juice. Use this strawberry and lemon juice mixture to brush on your gums, using a soft toothbrush. Then rinse well and spit. To learn more about the amazing healing properties of berries, have a look at my e-book The Healing Berry Guide. This e-book will teach you how to transform your health with berries.
Plain unsweetened yogurt
A report published in the Journal of Periodontology credits probiotics as one possible champion of gum health, so eat plain white unsweetened yogurt, and rub a little bit on the gums.
Supplements
Coenzyme Q10
Has a strong antioxidant effect and improves the oxygen supply to the tissues of the gums and helps in preventing and curing gingivitis.
Chlorella
This green algae helps to relieve, heal and treat gingivitis. Chlorella contains a compound that can enhance immune function and stimulates tissue repair.
Proper nutrition
Avoid consuming simple sugars and alcohol as they increase the accumulation of plaque on the teeth and weaken the immune system. Instead, consume foods rich in fiber such as fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains. The fiber doesn’t attack the bacteria on your teeth but it helps to improve your body’s immune system so you are in a better position to fight bacteria that causes gingivitis.
Brushing your teeth and flossing
Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day. Daily brushing reduces gum infections by 60%, and although you may have bleeding gums, it is important to brush your teeth thoroughly with a soft fiber toothbrush. Brush horizontally on the border between the gums and the teeth so the bristles will penetrate the space between the teeth and gums and will remove the leftover food and plaque. In addition to brushing your teeth with a brush, it is recommended to use a dental floss to clean between the teeth to prevent food from sticking between the teeth resulting in a favorite area for bacteria.
Visit dental hygienist
Visit a dental hygienist at least once a year to remove plaque and tartar. If your gingivitis doesn’t improve or getting worse, see your dentist.

Herbs That Kill Internal Parasites Naturally

Herbs That Kill Internal Parasites Naturally

Parasites are more common than most people realize. There are many different kinds. Internally, there's a pretty good chance that you and a third of the people you know have them. If we consider the possibility that there are many common parasites that we are as of yet unaware of, most of us could be suffering from them. If you want to take it a step further and consider candida a parasite (most don't group them together, but candida does fit the description), then it could be argued that most people in the world suffer from adverse health effects due to parasites.We use the word herb loosely here, it should really read "Foods, herbs, other things you can eat to kill parasites." But that's not a very good title.

1. Garlic

Garlic is anti-bad-stuff. Viruses, fungi, bacteria, parasites, cancer, and vampires all hate garlic. It's an absolutely amazing herb and the best in the business at killing bad stuff. It even chelates heavy metals (removes them from the body). Garlic is also a very powerful deterrent for blood sucking parasites like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas.

2. Black Walnut-Nuts & Hull

The nuts and green hulls of black walnut (Juglans nigra) are loved by herbalists for their ability to cleanse the blood and the intestines. Black walnut hull is used to cure fungal infections. The juice from the green hulls are used to kill parasites. Only green hulls should be used. 

3. Wormwood

Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) is a perennial herb with tiny yellow-green flowers. Leaves and flowers are used to treat stomach problems and wormwood is a powerful remedy for intestinal worms. Wormwood should be avoided by women who or nursing. Wormwood has strong antimicrobial properties and is used for other infections as well.

4. Cloves

Clove essential oil is used to dissolve eggs found in the intestines that have been left behind by worms. It's believed to be the only herb that actually does destroy almost all parasite eggs. When used in conjunction with black walnut and wormwood, the trio break the parasite's life-cycles. Clove is also antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Clove oil has powerful broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties. 

5. Thyme

Thyme is one of the best herbs for stimulating the thymus, a major gland of the immune system. Thyme helps stimulate the body's natural defenses and works very well with echinacea to boost the ability of our immune system. Oil of thyme can eliminate growth of many parasites, and it kills them in the intestinal tract.

6. Oil of Oregano

Oil of oregano is infused with extremely high levels of free-radical-crushing antioxidants, and it is antiparasitic, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. It is a powerful, indiscriminate killer that can reset the microbial environment in the intestines. Many studies show the effectiveness of oil of oregano with everything from parasitical infections to cancer.

7. Chinese Goldthread

Goldthread (Coptis chinensis) has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to treat all types of infections, including bacterial, parasitic, yeast, and protozoan. It contains a substance called berberine, which is responsible for the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties. 

8. Diatomaceous Earth

Food grade diatomaceous earth absorbs methyl mercury, E. coli, endotoxins, viruses, organophosphate pesticide residues, and drug residues. Its positive effects include killing intestinal parasites, balancing the intestinal flora, killing viruses, and absorbing toxins. It's great for intestinal cleanses. The only side effect known is its ability to irritate the lungs if inhaled; it is a very fine powder.
For many more choices to internal parasites, as well as a specific protocol that I personal use, read Eliminate Parasites, and check out Kill Common Parasites.


Agave Nectar: A Sweetener That is Even Worse Than Sugar

Agave Nectar: A Sweetener That is Even Worse Than Sugar 

The harmful effects of sugar are among the few things that most health experts agree on.
Everyone knows that sugar is unhealthy and most health conscious people try to avoid it.
Not surprisingly, all sorts of other sweeteners have become popular, both natural and artificial.One of those is called Agave nectar, a sweetener that is found in various “health foods.”It is claimed to be natural, and marketed as a diabetic-friendly sweetener that doesn’t spike blood sugar levels.However, if you ignore the marketing claims and take a look at what Agave nectar really contains, you will learn that it is actually even worse than plain sugar.
Let me explain why…  What is Agave?
The Agave plant grows natively in the southern U.S. and South America. It is most commonly associated with Mexico.Although most Westerners only recently started hearing of Agave, it has been used in Mexico for hundreds (if not thousands) of years.Back in the day, the Mexicans used it for various purposes and believed it to have medicinal properties.This is what the Agave plant looks like:
The Mexicans also used to boil the sap (sugary circulating plant fluid) to produce a sweetener known as miel de agave.But the most common use of the Agave plant is fermenting the sugars in it to produce the alcoholic beverage called tequila.In fact, tequila is the most common commercial use of Agave today and one of Mexico’s best known export products.Like many plants in their natural state, Agave probably does have some health benefits.However, as is so often the case, when the product is processed and refined it tends to lose some (or all) of these beneficial health effects. This appears to be the case with the refined Agave sweetener that people are consuming today.
How is Agave Nectar Made?

The sweetener commonly sold as Agave nectar would be more accurately labelled as Agave syrup.The truth is… it has very little in common with the traditional sweetener made by the Mexicans.The starting process is the same. They take the plant, then cut and press it to extract the sugary circulating fluid.This fluid is high in sugar, but it also contains healthy compounds like fructans, which are linked to beneficial effects on metabolism and insulin.However, when processed into a syrup, the manufacturers break the fructans down into fructose by exposing the sugary fluid to heat and/or enzymes.This process destroys all of the health promoting properties of the Agave plant, but instead produces the concentrated syrup available on store shelves that is falsely claimed to be healthy.The manufacturing process is similar to how other unhealthy sweeteners are made, such as High Fructose Corn Syrup.So… the sweetener sold as Agave nectar is NOT truly “nectar” – it is a refined, processed sweetener made from Agave nectar.Agave Nectar Does Not Spike Blood Sugar Much The Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of how quickly the sugar in a food enters your bloodstream.
Woman Wondering About Syrup Generally speaking, the higher the GI rating of a food, the greater the blood sugar spike and the worse it is for your health.Unlike glucose, fructose does not go directly into the bloodstream and therefore doesn’t raise blood sugar or insulin levels in the short-term.This is why high fructose sweeteners are often marketed as “healthy” or “diabetic friendly.”Agave nectar has a very low GI, primarily because almost all of the sugar in it is fructose. It has very little glucose, at least when compared to regular sugar.A recent study in mice compared the metabolic effects of Agave nectar and sucrose (plain sugar) after 34 days. The mice getting agave nectar gained less weight and had lower blood sugar and insulin levels.This is actually what we would expect in a short-term study, as the glucose in plain sugar elevates both blood sugar and insulin levels, whereas fructose does not.That being said… the glycemic index is just one of many things to consider when looking at the health effects of sweeteners.The harmful effects of Agave (and sugar in general) actually have very little to do with the glycemic index but everything to do with the large amounts of fructose… and Agave nectar is very high in fructose.
Agave Nectar is Dangerously High in Fructose
Glass Full Of Sugar Cubes
Sugar and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contain two simple sugars… about half glucose and half fructose.Although both glucose and fructose look very similar, they have completely different effects in the body.Glucose is an incredibly important molecule. It is found in many healthy foods (like carrots and potatoes) and our bodies even produce it to make sure that we always have enough.In fact, every living cell on the planet has glucose in it… because this molecule is absolutely vital to life.Whereas every cell in the human body can metabolize glucose, the liver is the only organ that can metabolize fructose in significant amounts.In the context of a high-carb, high-calorie Western diet, eating a lot of added fructose can wreak havoc on metabolic health.The liver gets overloaded and starts turning the fructose into fat, which gets shipped out as VLDL particles and raises blood triglycerides. Many researchers even believe that some of the fat can lodge in the liver and cause fatty liver disease.Although fructose doesn’t raise blood sugar levels in the short-term, it can on tribute to insulin resistance when consumed in large amounts.This can cause major increases in long-term blood sugar and insulin levels, strongly raising the risk of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.Eating large amounts of fructose can also have various other harmful effects… such as increasing small, dense LDL particles and oxidized LDL (very bad), cause belly fat accumulation, to name a few.Here’s where it gets really interesting… Agave nectar is about 85% fructose, which is much higher than plain sugar.Keep in mind that none of this applies to whole fruit, which are loaded with fiber and make us feel full quickly. We are well equipped to handle the small amounts of fructose found in fruit.
This “Healthy” Sweetener is Even Worse Than Regular Sugar
If you must add some extra sweetness to your diet, agave nectar is absolutely not the way to do it.There are several natural sweeteners out there that are much healthier… including stevia, erythritol and xylitol.Agave nectar may just be the unhealthiest sweetener in the world. It makes regular sugar look healthy in comparison… and that is saying something.

Проф. Мермерски - всичко се лекува, но българите ядат храни, които убиват!

Проф. Мермерски - всичко се лекува, но българите ядат храни, които убиват!



Българите не знаят, че ядат храни, които ги убиват… Стомасите им са като циганска торба, хвърляме в тях всичко, което видим на масата“.
Това са думи на проф. Христо Мермерски -  агробиолог с две докторски дисертации. Автор е на 23 книги за здравословното хранене и за това как да се лекуваме без лекарства. Преподавал е в много наши и чуждестранни университети.
Също така казва, че има лек за редица „неизлечими“ за съвременната медицина болести.
Например...
За високото кръвно или „тихият убиец“, както го наричат в медицинските среди, защото поразява сърдечната система, води до инфаркт, инсулт и бъбречна недостатъчност.
Проф. Мермерски предлага лек за този коварен убиец, който се води нелечим в според официалната медицина.  
Ето каква е „рецептата” на Мермерски: едно твърдо сварено яйце се накисва в съд с оцет. Престоява в него 24 часа. Черупката му се напуква и пада сама. После се обелва ципата на яйцето и то се измива, посолява се и се изяжда. На 4-тия ден кръвното на пациента се нормализира напълно...
Звучи толкова просто и хубаво, че се чудим възможно ли е да е вярно?
Професорът споделя, че рецептата работи безотказано. Няма нито един неуспешен случай сред първите 15 доброволци...
Не само високото кръвно е лечимо според Мермерски, а дори и ракът, с помощта на специална напитка.
Според хората, които са изпробвали чудодейната рецепта, тя наистина действа!
Напитката прочиства кръвоносните съдове, лекува сърцето, подобрява имунитета, почиства бъбреците, системата за секреция, подобрява работата на мозъка и паметта, а се предполага и, че помага при всички видове рак...
Необходимите съставки са: 15 лимони, 12 глави чесън, 1 кг мед, 400 гр.  пшеница и 400 гр.  орехи. И това е всичко.
Ако и вие сте опитвали методите на лечение на проф. Мермерски, моля споделете!

TISANA DEPURATIVA LIMONE PEPE DI CAYENNA E ZENZERO

TISANA DEPURATIVA LIMONE PEPE DI CAYENNA E ZENZERO

Innanzitutto vorrei chiarire una cosa: questa tisana  depurativa  a  base  di  limone  pepe  di cayenna  e  zenzero non costituisce una dieta drastica. Se siete arrivati fino al mio blog pensando di trovare una dieta che preveda di bere solo tisana per una settimana senza mangiare, allora questo non è l’articolo che cercavate. Preferisco chiarire subito questo: io credo in un’alimentazione bilanciata che comprenda tutti i cibi in proporzioni giuste.
 Detto ciò sono convinta che bere questa tisana al mattino certamente possa mettere in moto il  nostro  metabolismo e aiutare a ripulire  e  depurare  il  nostro  corpo, specialmente dopo i periodi festivi durante i quali si tende a mangiare di più. Ecco quindi qualche spiegazione sugli ingredienti e il mio metodo di preparazione della tisana.


Innanzitutto bere questa tisana regolarmente, al mattino e a digiuno, stimola il fegato, organo primario ai fini della depurazione, e dà un avvio al sistema digestivo. Il fegato è l’organo che rilascia acido urico e crea la bile ai fini di eliminare le tossine dal nostro organismo. Mantenere fegato e sistema digestivo puliti e in forma aiuta a prevenire malattie croniche.


Il limone è un disintossicante naturale in quanto trasforma le tossine in sostanza digeribile. Oltre a contenere la vitamina C, il limone è ricco di antiossidanti ed elettroliti quali potassio, calcio e magnesio che facilitano la reidratazione del nostro corpo. Inoltre il limone stimola gli enzimi naturali del fegato contribuendo a ossigenare il corpo.



Il pepe  di  cayenna (che altro non è che peperoncino essiccato) è ricco di vitamina A e stimola il sistema circolatorio aprendo i capillari, facilita la digestione e aiuta a regolare gli zuccheri nel sangue. Inoltre, cosa molto importante, aumenta la temperatura del nostro corpo e mette in azione il metabolismo.


Lo zenzero è noto per tante proprietà: facilita la digestione, calma la nausea, allevia dolori muscolari e articolari, accelera la guarigione nelle malattie da raffreddamento e l’influenza. E così via: le sue proprietà sono tante. Quella che a me interessava di più è quella che grazie al suo effetto termogenico lo zenzero aiuta a bruciare calorie, sempre assunto all’interno di una dieta equilibrata. Infatti lo zenzero favorisce la digestione dei carboidrati e delle proteine. Questa tisana  va bevuta tiepida al mattino prima di ingerire qualsiasi altro alimento. Infatti quando ci svegliamo i nostri corpi sono disidratati. Il caffè, che noi siamo abituati a bere come prima cosa, ahimè è un diuretico dunque ci disidrata ulteriormente! Invece la tisana limone pepe di cayenna e zenzero non solo ci fornisce le proprietà appena descritte ma anche l’idratazione necessaria al nostro corpo dopo aver dormito. Dunque è un super stimolante mattutino per il nostro corpo!


Personalmente la prima volta che ho bevuto questa tisana ho pensato “bleah” ma poi ho capito innanzitutto di aver messo troppo pepe di cayenna, dunque il sapore era proprio troppo piccante… e poi ho anche capito che, golosa come sono io, non avrei potuto bere questa tisana senza dolcificarla. Dunque, senza ovviamente ricorrere allo zucchero, mi è bastata una puntina di miele per dolcificarne una tazza e renderla gustosa e dopo 4 giorni devo dire che al mattino mi fa piacere berla. Il caffè lo bevo dopo almeno mezzora dalla tisana, per dare tempo agli ingredienti di essere assorbiti dal corpo. Ma sinceramente, e chi ha letto il mio diario sa che se lo dico io la cosa si fa interessante: dopo questa tisana io il caffè me lo dimentico completamente… incredibile ma vero!

13 Reasons Every Woman Should Masturbate Regularly

13 Reasons Every Woman Should Masturbate Regularly


Historically, masturbation has gotten a bad rap, but a party for one is still a party. And this is one party you'll actually feel better after attending. Masturbation has some awesome health benefits and feels really really good.
Research shows most women over the age of 18 have masturbated at least once, but few women do so routinely. According to Indiana University's National Survey Of Sexual Health And Behavior, only 7.9 percent of women between the ages of 25 and 29 masturbate two to three times a week whereas 23.4 percent of men do. C'mon ladies, we deserve better than that.
Masturbation is a normal, enjoyable and healthy experience. It's time to put the taboo subject of women and masturbation to bed and realize a little menage a moi might be exactly what you need.
The Huffington Post spoke with Dr. Lauren Streicher, an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern University and author of Sex Rx: Hormones Health And Your Best Sex Ever, about the health benefits of masturbation. She said that masturbation can benefit your health by helping you sleep, relieving stress and simply being more comfortable with your body. She also noted that, similar to working out or getting a massage, self-stimulation is a great way for you to relax both emotionally and physically. Instead of buying an expensive massage, you can just stay in and give yourself one.
So, dim the lights, burn some candles and hop into bed (or whatever your routine may be) -- it's time to partake in a little self exploration. Here are 13 reasons every woman should masturbate on the reg:
1. It makes you happier.
“We know that pleasure makes people feel good," Streicher said. It's really that simple. Orgasms release the endorphins dopamine and oxytocin, which can improve your mood and create a natural high. Who needs drugs when you can make your own?
2. You become more comfortable with your body.
Your body should be your best friend -- it's one of the only things that will be with you your entire life. And part of becoming besties with your body includes exploring it. “It is extremely important that women have an appreciation of their own anatomy and how to self-pleasure,” Streicher said. Time to hit the books, ladies.
3. It can improve your sex life.
Masturbation allows you to explore your body and find out what feels best. Knowing your body in this way can make you more confident in bed and more vocal with partners. Once you figure out what you like, you can tell your partner where to touch you.
4. It helps you sleep.
There's a reason most of us feel so sleepy after those toe-curling climaxes: Orgasms physically and emotionally relieve tension and exhaust the body, which allow you to fall asleep quicker. “Generally people do sleep better after masturbating, but very often it’s from feeling relaxed and satisfied," Streicher said. Masturbation helps people sleep the same way reading a book before bed does -- you feel calm and relaxed after.
5. It's a great way to release sexual tension.
If you've chosen to not have sex or are simply going through a dry spell, masturbating is a great way to satisfy your libido.
6. Masturbating can ease body aches and menstrual pain.
“If you have a uterine contraction while self-stimulating and a uterine contraction can help menstrual blood come out faster... theoretically it’s going to help with cramps,” Streicher said. While she cautioned that the research behind this benefit is relatively limited, Streicher said there's no reason not to masturbate while on your period: “It’s never a bad thing and if it seems to help you then go for it.” Either way, it's more fun than a heating pad.
7. It relieves stress.
“Anything that makes you feel more relaxed and gets you to turn off the day, whether you do yoga or get a foot massage, it’s all the same thing," Streicher said. "It’s not that it has to be sexual but sex and self-stimulation is definitely one of the ways to relieve stress." Sounds like an awesome way to unwind.
8. Masturbation helps your body stay sexual... even when you're not having sex.
“If you’re between partners, there’s a very strong benefit to keeping things going by self-stimulating -- not only in terms of keeping the tissues elastic and healthy and increasing blood flow, but just getting your brain going," Streicher said. "We know that sex and arousal starts in the brain… The more sex you have, the more sex you want because you think about sex more. If you have someone who hasn’t been sexual for a very long period of time, in most cases, they’re not even thinking about it."
9. There are tons of cool gadgets to help you masturbate.
From hands-free vibrators to buzzing faux lip stick bottles, there's a vibrator for every lady.
10. If you're in a relationship, it's a great way to mix things up -- and keep you coming back for more.
As Streicher noted, the more sex you have, the more sex you'll want to have. It follows that the more you masturbate and become comfortable being sexual with your own body, the more you'll want to be sexual with your partner. "We know that being self-sexual is going to stimulate the part of the brain that is going to keep your libido alive and well," Streicher said.
11. Multiple. Orgasms.
Understanding how your body works helps you know exactly how to pleasure it. Once, twice, three times -- it's up to you! Climax is often times only at the end of sex for men, but women can keep going. Why stop at one?
12. There are no downsides to it.
Masturbation has "absolutely zero negative effects," Streicher said. "Nothing bad can happen from doing it -- you can’t catch anything, you can’t get pregnant, you’re not going to get sick. It’s the best thing out there as far as a feel-good vice that isn’t going to have any negative repercussions.”
13. It feels f*&^%$! amazing.
No explanation needed.
Clear your calendars, a little "me" time starts now.
