Evening Primrose oil - Asthma- Dry skin - sore throat. from Wild earth

Written by Jo Ann Prior

Each Gram of Evening Primrose Oil is collected from thousands of seeds of the beautiful Evening primrose flower ( Oenothera Biennis).

It's been claimed to work as a treatment for eczema, premenstrual syndrome, and even sore throats.

Its health benefits are believed to be linked to its high omega-6 fatty acid content.

Evening primrose oil contains a specific type of omega 6, known as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is usually found in a number of plant oils.

Without enough GLA in your diet, you're more at risk of developing some common skin conditions or allergic reactions, people that eat a typical Western diet are more likely to be deficient in GLA. Evening primrose oil is a rich source of the omega-6 fatty acid GLA," "Whilst our diets do tend to contain omega-6 fats, we do not get a lot of GLA in a typical Western diet.

How to use a Foam Roller

Written by Jo Ann Prior

What is a Foam Roller?

A foam roller is just a cylindrical piece of hard-celled foam that varies in size from 30 to 70 cm long. They can be purchased from $25 and up.

Foam Rolling is a method of soft tissue mobilisation and a form of self-myofascial release (SMR): basically self-massage.

Fascia is the soft tissue component of the connective tissue that provides support and protection for most structures within the human body, including muscle. This soft tissue can become restricted due to psychogenic disease, overuse, trauma, infectious agents, or inactivity which often results in pain, muscle tension, and corresponding diminished blood flow. Although fascia and its corresponding muscle are the main targets of myofascial release, other tissue may be affected as well, including other connective tissue. When the fascia becomes irritated, it becomes inflamed, leading to thickening of the connective tissues (fibrosis), which in turn causes reflexive muscle tension which leads to more inflammation.
