Kale as a Superfood

July 25, 2018

Kale is a leafy vegetable from the cabbage (Brassica oleracea) family, that is related to other vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. It can come in many different colours and varieties, with one of the most common being curly kale, or Scots kale, which is distinguished by green, curly leaves, and a hard, fibrous stem. Kale grows best in cooler climates, especially Mediterranean regions, but is also found in many other areas of the world. Kale leaves can be flat or curly, and grow up to 6 feet in height, with colours including green, purple, white, and lavender. It is an extremely nutrient dense food, full of important vitamins and minerals that the body requires to function on a cellular level. It also contains very low amounts of calories and fats, with a large portion of the fat amount being the healthy omega-3 fatty acid known as alpha linoleic acid.   When it comes to buying

Iridology (also known as iridodiagnosis or iridiagnosis) is generally used as a diagnostic tool rather than a treatment therapy to determine systemic health.   Studying the various marks, signs and discolouration of the iris is said to be an indicator of existing or developing systemic health problems.  Markings and patterns are compared to an iris chart that correlates the 80-90 zones of the iris with parts of the human body.    There are a number of varying iridology charts available with no uniform interpretation of specific iris signs.    Although Iridology cannot detect specific diseases and an iridologist will not (or should not) name a specific disease it can reveal whether various body systems are under par or over-stressed.  The approach is more holistic as it considers physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of an individual’s health.

Diamond is the hardest mineral in the world, with a hardness of 10 on Moh’s hardness scale. Diamond is composed completely of carbon atoms arranged in a strong crystal lattice. It is so hard because the carbon atoms are bonded together via extremely strong covalent bonds. There are usually hardly any impurities in diamond due to the rigidity of its lattice, but when there is nitrogen or boron present, the diamond will turn yellow or blue respectively.   Diamond is formed at extremely high pressures and temperatures deep under the Earth’s surface. This depth usually varies between 140 – 190 kilometres into the Earth’s mantle. Minerals containing carbon, provide the source material, and the diamond crystal will grow over a time period of 1 billion to 3.3 billion years. The diamond will then be brought to the surface by violent volcanic eruptions, and the magma (containing the diamond) will cool and solidify into rocks known as kimberlites and lamproites.   Diamond is u
