Myrtle Tree Oil: An All-Around Wonder Remedy For Wrinkles, Depression, Infectious Disease And Neurological Disorders

Famous for its superior antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties, oil from the lemon myrtle tree knocks out stubborn salmonella and staph organisms while providing a variety of cosmetic uses. Not only does it soothe wrinkles and blemishes, but also calms nervous system disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, vertigo and depression. As an added bonus, myrtle oil is considered an aphrodisiac.

Time-honored oil of beauty and health

The ancient Greeks associated the myrtle tree with Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, for good reason. Through its exceptional astringent, antiseptic and skin firming properties, myrtle oil is a powerful tonic for the skin. Pharmacologists believe the high level of myrtucommulone-A is responsible for the strong analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory attributes of the oil. Due to impressive antiseptic qualities, myrtle is an excellent topical remedy for skin infections, wounds and ulcers - including stubborn MRSA varieties. It also contracts and tightens the skin, helping to alleviate wrinkles. High myrtol content encourages the synthesis of sirtuin compounds, helping to further reduce skin aging. For those suffering from acne, myrtle opens the pores and acts as a bactericide, thereby reducing the incidence of breakouts. Mediterranean countries have long used myrtle extract to encourage hair growth as well. Additionally, it has a "highly selective cytostatic (inhibiting) effect on tumors," as stated by the botanical health and wellness site Bioesti.

Paleo Diet For Cancer-Free Living? Research Says Yes



A few vegetarian and vegan hackles will be raised due to research demonstrating a low-carb diet may be a better choice for preventing and healing cancer. Unfortunately, vegetarian diets tend to rely heavily on carbohydrates - mainly in the form of grains. When excessive carbohydrates are consumed, tumor growth is aggravated as a consequence of increased glucose and insulin levels. Considering the typical Western diet is 55 percent carbohydrate, it's no wonder cancer rates are through the roof. The problem is further inflamed by organizations like the American Cancer Society who advocate atrocious food choices for cancer patients. Rife with propaganda and misinformation, the establishment has kept the myth of  healthy high-carbohydrate diets alive.
