Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar

The proponents of apple cider vinegar say that if you regularly use the vinegar "with the mother" - the cloudy combination of bacteria and yeast - you have a cure-all, whether it is a better skin or a more efficient metabolism.

Some studies suggest a beneficial impact on glucose metabolism and weight loss, while other studies have found no effect compared to a placebo.

Drinking ACV may do more harm than good. It's been linked to tooth enamel erosion, gastrointestinal issues such as reflux, and reduced potassium levels.

Oil pulling

Oil pulling

The practise of swishing oil around in your mouth for 15 - 20 minutes a day is an Ayurvedic folk remedy and said to be a miraculous way to cleanse the body of toxins. Advocates say that it can whiten teeth, freshen breath, prevent cavities, and cleanse your body of various toxins.

However, the detoxifying effect is yet to be shown in clinical trials. There is some evidence that oil pulling can help with oral hygiene, but mainstream dentists don't see it as a good substitute for toothpaste.

There are few documented harms that can come from this practice.

Lymphatic massage

Lymphatic massage

The massage technique involves a light touch to activate the lymph nodes (the tiny trash scavengers vital to your immune system). The method was developed to help people with oedema and to combat inflammation.

There's no evidence to show that lymphatic massage can make you lose weight, change the shape of your face, improve your general health, or cure cancer.

Lymphatic massage is relaxing and safe for most people but not recommended if you have circulation problems, congestive heart failure, or certain kidney issues.

Saunas

Saunas

Sauna sech can benefit your body. Dry saunas raise the pulse and increase circulation, mimicking the effects of physical exercise. In addition, regular sauna sessions are linked to pain reduction in patients with rheumatic diseases like fibromyalgia. However, those with existing heart problems should check with their doctor before using saunas.

Time in a sauna doesn't cause permanent weight loss. However, it can make you dangerously hydrated, making it essential to drink lots of water before and after a session.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
