Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

Bee Pollen....Powerful Stuff

The mighty bee pollen from our little friends the bees!! Those little guys know what they are doing as bee pollen contains almost all the nutrients the body needs to thrive. It's so healthy for us, the German Federal Board of Health has officially recognized it as a medicine!!!

It's great for natural allergy relief. It contains detoxifying properties. Bee pollen is responsible for the many health benefits of raw honey. It's rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, fatty acids, enzymes, cartenoids & bio-flavanoids. It's anti bacterial, anti fungal & anti viral. This pollen can help strengthens capillaries, reduces inflammation, contains antioxidants, stimulates the immune system & can help to lower cholesterol. It contains more protein than any other animal source. Bee pollen contains about 250 substances including amino acids, lipids, macro & micro nutrients.

It's composed of:
30% digestible carbs
26% sugars (mainly fructose & glucose)
23% proteins which includes 10% of the essential amino acids
5% lipids, including essential fatty acids
2% phenolic compounds
1.6% minerals which include: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, copper, zinc, maganese, silicon & selenium
.6% water soluble vitamins & acids
.1% fat soluble vitamins

Bee pollen can also help protect against liver toxicity, relieve menopausal symptoms, relieve stress, promotes healing especially in burns & it contains anti microbial properties.

Get your bee pollen from reputable sources, free from pesticides & chemicals. Mix it in yogurt, cottage cheese, cereal & baked goods. Add it to smoothies, fruit & veggie juices. If you add it to warm water & let soak 2-3 hours, they crack & release their nutritional value.

If you are allergic to bees, honey, etc. don't ingest it. Avoid if pregnant or on blood thinners.
