Why is Valentine's day celebrated?

The origins of Valentine's day are murky.We know that the Ancient Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia, a Spring Festival, on the 15th of February, with the introduction of Christianity. The holiday moved to the 14th of February - The Saint Day that celebrated several early Christian Martyr's named Valentine.


What is the real story of Valentine's day?

The legend of St Valentine - The History of Valentine's day and the story of its Patron Saint-is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance.and that St. Valentine's day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and Ancient Roman tradition.


Who was Saint Valentine and What did he do?

One account from the 1400s describes Valentine as a temple priest who was beheaded near Rome by the Emperor Claudius II for helping Christian couples wed. A different account claims Valentine was the Bishop of Terni. also martyred by Claudius II on the outskirts of Rome.


What is Valentine's Day all about?

Each Year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special "Valentine" The day of romance we call Valentine's Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century. but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.

Nelly's Beauty Blog Winner - After been Ranked among the 100 best British Beauty Bloggers, here is the next blog, which I hope you will enjoy reading. It is about your eyes!


Marigolds are a common sight in flower gardens and are even planted in other gardens because they support the growth of vegetables. It is that protective ability that we are interested in.


Specifically, we are interested in the colour essence of Marigolds,

Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Marigolds are the most potent source of these two vital Vision Detoxifier compounds.


- Zeaxanthin helps give Marigold leaves their vibrant green colour.

- Lutein helps make the flower petals yellow and orange.


More importantly, the top nutrition researchers from India, Italy, Poland, Turkey, Iran, and England all came together to report that light comes in through your lens, then projects the image onto your retina (the inside back of your eye). The images then travel along your optic nerve to your brain, your lens flexes and adjusts to focus the image. It stays loose to focus on objects far away and flexes tight to focus on close objects.


If your near-distance vision is getting worse as you age, here's what' happening: Your lens is losing its ability to flex and focus on close objects.


Fortunately, there is a way to protect your eyes.

In fact, this solution lies deep inside that beauty of nature itself.

I'm talking about the "colour essence" of a common yellow and orange flower.


The molecules that give this flower it's vibrant colours are the very same molecules that will protect you against blue Radiation. I believe there is poetry in this. It's as if the flowers want you to continue enjoying their beauty, so they give you the tools to do so.


Vision 20 starts with the 3 ingredients we've already talked about. Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Zinc.


Beta-carotene is a form of vitamin A. You can find small amounts of it in foods ranging from milk to carrots. According to researchers at the University of Colorado, Beta-carotene protects your vision against overly bright light including blue UV light. It also slows the death of vital eye cells and lowers your risk of serious vision concerns.


Lycopene. This is another colour essence compound. It gives fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, watermelons and guavas their red colour. AND it also protects the cells in your eyes.


Hope you enjoy this reading. Please give us your comments! Nelly.

If you ever expect to restore your health naturally using Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), it is critical you get the right kind.


See, raw organic apple cider vinegar truly is a nature's perfect miracle food and should never be confused with regular clear vinegar. Clear vinegar has none of the health properties of ACV and can actually be harmful!


Raw organic ACV is made from organic apples, and goes through a double fermentation process that produces an abundance of enzymes while preserving all its health-promoting characteristics in a liquid suspension.


That's how you know you have the right kind of vinegar. Because raw organic ACV will appear almost like it's “dirty". But make no mistake, this is normal and a good thing and proof that ACV is packed full of beneficial nutrients and natural healing substances.


If your body is not properly pH balanced, it is wide open for disease and sickness because:

1) Acidity robs minerals from bones, cells, organs and tissue!

2) Without minerals-vitamin absorptions is compromised!

3) Toxins and pathogens easily build up and the immune system is suppressed!


There's something wrong with our way of thinking when something as pure and natural as ACV is considered an "out of the box" remedy-when in fact it's just a good old simple common-sense way to promote overall heath and well-being!


So why do some people find it hard to believe that natural cures don't work and that we have to put our faith in dangerous pharmaceuticals to find relief. Now if that's not "out of the box”, I don't know what is! How often has the next big drug been fast-tracked through the FDA and fed to millions of trusting people expecting to be cured. Only to discover that the medicine they were taking was making them sicker-even killing them?


But as soon as you understand the "business of medicine”, it all becomes crystal clear. Conventional medicine is about treating your symptoms not preventing illness.


Is it okay to add a spoonful of sugar?


In one word, no. Sugar is found in everything, in fresh fruit and certain vegetables. These are not harmful as they usually comes with other nutrients fibre, vitamins, minerals and water. We need a certain amount of sugar to help maintain our energy levels and a number of functions that maintain general good health. But with modern food processing, it's easy to extract sugar from that natural food and leave the nutrients and fibre behind, so the processed food is not very beneficial to your body.


Fibre allows sugar to be released more slowly, so it doesn't go straight into your blood. However, with processed foods and in particular sugary drinks, you have excessive amounts of sugar and very little fibre. The sugar goes straight into your body, which can lead to conditions like diabetes and obesity.
