Surprisingly enough, Bananas have several uses, not just for eating! Here are 15 uses I found via www.care2.com! Enjoy!

“15 Surprising Uses for Bananas

Sure, most of us love to enjoy bananas for breakfast or, perhaps, a snack. But bananas have so much more going for them than just a delicious and nutritious treat. In fact, so many of the reasons bananas are great for other things beside eating has to do with their nutrients! Click through for clever ways to use bananas to tackle everything from insect bites to aphids.

HEALTH & BEAUTY
1. TREAT DAMAGED HAIR. Our own Diana Herrington detailed Dr. Oz’s quest for the best damaged hair treatment out there. The results? Bananas! Click here to read Diana’s step-by-step guide treating your hair with bananas.

By Randy Fritz
Ingredients:
2 or 3 ripe bananas

These are the two bananas I started with. The less ripe one smelled so good when I peeled it that I decided to eat it instead. Good thing I have short hair.

Directions:
– Puree the banana completely. This is important.
– Pour the banana mixture into a glass or bowl.
– I added a few tablespoons of water during the process to get it out of the blender.
– With your hands, massage the banana puree into your hair.
It felt smooth and milky like a conditioner should, and I knew it didn’t have chemicals in it!
– Relax and wait 15 minutes.
– Rinse and shampoo your hair.

2. WHITEN TEETH. Dying for some pearly whites? Rub banana peel on your teeth for about two minutes every time you brush and you’ll be well on your way to that perfect smile.

3. PREVENT WRINKLES. Check out this recipe for a 3-time-a-week banana anti-aging mask!

3 Times a Week Banana Anti-Aging Mask
By Annie B. Bond
This excerpt is from Anti-Wrinkle Treatments for Perfect Skin, by Pierre Jean Cousin.

Here they are teamed with heavy cream (traditionally used to prevent wrinkles) and organic honey in a recipe crammed full of nutrients.

INGREDIENTS
1 small banana
2 tablespoons fresh heavy cream
1 tablespoon organic honey
1 tablespoon oat flour
Bottled or spring water
Rose hydrosol (see “Note,” below, about hydrosols.

METHOD
Mash the banana, using the back of a fork, and then add cream, honey, and flour. Stir to mix well. You may need to add a little more cream or flour to obtain the consistency of thick cream of yogurt.

Apply mask to the clean face, including the area around the eyes and the neck, and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse off with bottled or spring water and cotton pads, and dab on a little rose hydrosol, allowing to dry naturally.

Effect: nourishes
Skin types: dry, aging
Frequency of use: 3 times a week
Shelf life: 6 hours in refrigerator
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Treatment time: 30 minutes

Note about hydrosols: Also known as floral waters (but not flower waters), hydrosols are a byproduct of steam distillation, created while extracting essential oil. Hydrosols have properties similar to those of their related essential oils, although inevitably in a less concentrated form, but they are enriched with various water-soluble active ingredients. Their gentleness makes them an excellent way to tone, hydrate, and rebalance the pH of the skin, so they are frequently recommended as final cleansers/toners after cleansing or nourishing masks.

4. TREAT INSECT BITES. Rub some banana peels on the bites to alleviate the itch.

5. TREAT WARTS. Bananas are rich in potassium, which is said to help treat warts.

6. TREAT BRUISES, CUTS, AND SCRAPES. Potassium also helps with the healing process for cuts, scrapes, and bruises.

7. GET RID OF SPLINTERS. Can’t get that pesky splinter out of your skin? I feel your pain. Luckily, if you press banana peels onto the splinter, the fruit’s natural enzymes will work to get that sucker out.

8. EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN. Check out a great banana body sugar rub recipe here.

Banana Body Sugar Scrub
By Melissa Breyer

Bananas are a natural for body care. Their creamy pulp is luscious and soothing, and works well as a carrier for other ingredients. Banana is nourishing and moisturizing and can be used for gentle exfoliation and skin-tightening.

In this simple formula, bananas and sugar are combined for a wonderfully aromatic and gently exfoliating body scrub.

INGREDIENTS
1 ripe banana
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract or your favorite essential oil (optional)

Mash ingredients together with a fork into a chunky paste. Do not overmix or it will become too watery. If you want a banana scrub for your face, reserve some of the banana and mash it separately without sugar.

In the shower, before turning the water on, slather the sugar mixture and gently massage over your body. For your face, gently massage plain banana there, avoiding the eye area.

Rinse off with warm water.

HOME & GARDEN
9. ATTRACT BIRDS & BUTTERFLIES. Like humans, birds and butterflies just love the taste of bananas. If you’d like to watch birds, leave a banana out.

10. FERTILIZE YOUR PLANTS. Dried ground banana peels make a fantastic mulch for seedlings and new plants.

11. POLISH LEATHER & SILVER. No need to invest in pricey, and often toxic, leather and silver cleaners. Instead, rub banana peels on the surface and buff with a cloth.

12. COMBAT APHIDS. Nobody likes a damaged plant. Bury some cut up banana peels 2-3 inches deep around the base of the plant.

13. DOG TREAT. Bananas are a perfectly safe, and perfectly healthy, treat for your beloved pooch!

14. PURIFY WATER. OK, this is perhaps best left to the professionals, but research has suggested that banana peels can actually absorb toxins in polluted rivers. But, if you ever find yourself lost in the woods with only a banana peel, you’ll be prepared!

15. MAKE “ICE CREAM”. Craving the sweet stuff but don’t have the time, calories, or budget to spare? Simply blend a frozen solid banana in a food processor or blender. You’ll be surprised how much it tastes like soft-serve ice cream!”

 Your Brain

A 2013 report found that since 1979, deaths due o brain disease have increased by 66 percent in men and a whopping 92 percent in women. Causes of death include:
Stroke, Brain tumor, Alzheimer’s disease, Degenerative brain disease.

These diseases are difficult to treat with traditional medicine, yet many doctors and healthcare providers will still do so at the cost of their patients. What if there were a way to prevent the onset of these diseases? Wouldn’t it make more sense to invest in personal health and prevention rather than uncertain treatment? 

Introducing Functional Medicine 
Unlike modern medical approaches, functional medicine doesn’t only focus on treating the symptoms of an illness. Instead, functional health professionals use the knowledge that the symptoms provide to get to the root cause of the discomfort with the goal of preventing it from happening again. This is where the vital difference between modern healthcare and functional healthcare lies. In terms of brain health, there are many things that can be done to prevent the onset of disease such as the ones listed above.
Functional health professionals will outline individualized techniques in order to eliminate underlying symptoms that can be precursors to brain diseases, such as stress and inflammation. They will help you figure out how to make these methods work for you and optimize your experience.
Getting to know all aspects of your health issue and implementing positive change to prevent them from worsening cultivates awareness in your body,  your mind and your overall state of health. 

Needless to say, nutrition plays a HUGE role in ensuring your baseline brain health is at its optimum level. Eliminating pro-inflammatory foods from your diet is key to healthy proper brain function. Check out this yummy brain-boosting recipe:
Black Bean and Salmon Tostadas
Ingredients:
8 6-inch corn tortillasCanola oil cooking spray1 6- to 7-ounce can boneless, skinless wild Alaskan salmon, drained1 avocado, diced2 tablespoons minced pickled jalapeños, plus 2 tablespoons pickling juice from the jar, divided2 cups coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage2 tablespoons chopped cilantro1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream2 tablespoons prepared salsa2 scallions, choppedLime wedges (optional)Instructions:: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/249998/black-bean-salmon-tostadas/

Magnesium beCalm – Essential Biomineral
A critical mineral responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions, Magnesium is found in all of our tissues, but mainly in our bones, muscles, and brain.

Magnesium is the second most abundant element inside human cells and the fourth most abundant positively charged ion in the human body.

A deficiency in this critical nutrient makes you twice as likely to die as other people, according to a study published in

The Journal of Intensive Care Medicine. It also accounts for a long list of symptoms and diseases which are easily helped, and often cured, by adding this nutrient

.Magnesium is required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione

.Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm.

Early signs of Magnesium deficiency can include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As Magnesium deficiency worsens additional symptoms may include numbness, tingling, muscle contractions, cramps, seizure, personality changes, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms.

Habitually low intakes of magnesium induce changes in biochemical pathways that can increase the risk of illness over time.

With its role in regulating the thousands of biochemical reactions that occur on an ongoing basis, sufficient Magnesium is essential to achieving the delicate balance necessary to the body’s function.

The importance of Magnesium ions for life itself, as well as for overall vibrant health, is hard to overstate.

Ingredients

Suggested Use

,Everyone ages, but there are aspects we can slow down or even prevent in order to preserve our healthy and youthful appearance. This, by definition, should be grab those interested in functional, natural healthcare. 

Why?
Because aging IS natural.It’s a vital and unavoidable part of life which when handled incorrectly can truly produce disastrous results (think of the WORST ‘botox-fail’ you’ve ever seen). While there are countless synthetic methods to ‘slow down’ the effects of aging, such as the onset of wrinkles, skin loosening, and the dulling of skin tone,, they are not permanent. These temporary “solutions” cannot prevent the pending lure of your next birthday when it inevitably comes around.Functional health care, however, makes the natural ways in which we can remain our most youthful and healthy the priority! It’s been proven that the most youthful, in both appearance and mindset, are those who live the more modest lifestyles such as avoiding extremes, and maintaining a healthy relationship with food, alcohol, and exercise.What Causes ‘Aging Skin’?The skin is one of the most obvious areas of aging. Some of the most damaging things for skin health include:StressSun exposureSmokingAlcoholExtreme cold weatherLack of physical fitnessLack of sleepNatural health practitioners recognize that it’s difficult to recommend one treatment or solution to prevent aging in all patients. That’s why it’s important to find natural products which agree to your unique skin needs in order to minimize the effects of the aging process naturally.Functional medicine believes that no one person or illness is the same, and so becoming ‘literate’ in the area of functional health which applies to you is key to gaining mastery of it and seeing lasting results.Our hope is to enable all patients to become ‘literate’ and confident in functional health, so as to maximize their chances of preventing the early onset of aging.Naturally occurring oils are some of the best-known fighters on aging in the functional medicine world! The following recipe is a great cream you can make yourself and add to your anti-aging routine: Ingredients: 1 1/2 fl oz (40ml) Sweet Almond Oil1 fl oz (20ml) Calendula Oil3/4 oz (20g) Cosmetic Grade BeeswaxA handful of Dried Calendula Flowers1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) Frankincense Essential Oil1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) Lemon Essential OilSee the link below for further instructions:
