Homeopathic Remedies Cure Patients Holistically

Homeopathy, which dates back to the 1700s, is an alternative medicinal practice that uses small doses of natural substances that in a healthy person would create symptoms of disease. In order to help treat or cure a disease Homeopathy uses the fewest possible quantity of an active element, even if this same component has resulted in the illness in the first place.

Homeopathy is the second largest therapeutic system in use in the world, according to WHO.

Now, hundreds of diverse homeopathic remedies are available. A range of natural substances are used in Homeopathic medicine. They are either derived from animals or from minerals or plants. Activated charcoal, fresh or dried herbs, garlic, vinegar, caffeine, crushed bees, white arsenic, mountain herbs, stinging nettle plants, and poison ivy are used by a homeopathic doctor to treat a patient. To create the sweet pills, gels, skin ointments, creams or drops, these substances are extracted or processed in another way.

The Real Problem With 'Text Neck'

Smart phones. Tablets. Texting. Social Media.

Most of us, me included, are hooked on our smart phones and multi-media devices.

This is a big problem. Why?

Because of the constant bending of the neck.

It may seem like this constant bending of the neck is no big deal because in most cases people don't feel neck pain from texting.

However, what is actually happening is premature aging and wearing down of the spine and discs. This is called degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis.

And in a majority of cases, you will not feel pain while the spine is wearing down and degenerating.

However... fast forward 10 years, or 15 years, or 20 years, and the amount of spinal damage, decay, and aging that occurs and is seen on x-rays is startling. And to think that it could have been prevented or at the very minimum the progression could have been slowed down significantly.

I am especially concerned with kids and teens because they represent our future.

And while they are spending hours and hours on their…

Technique Vs Cost Perspective of Choosing the Hair Transplant Procedure

The hair transplant procedure is referred to as moving or shifting the hair follicles from the safe zone of the donor to the recipient one's scalp, where it is needed to implant the follicles in order to cover the bald portion as well as shifting the hair follicles in such a manner that the aesthetic results could be achieved in terms of natural hairline design as well as the proper dense graft pattern of the bald portion as requisite.

The second thing which comes in this aspect is about the cost of the hair transplant for the particular technique that is being opted in terms of harvesting maximum grafts as well as getting more natural results.

How Your Home Is More Contaminated Than Most Public Places

Not all germs are bad, but many are, and they are lurking everywhere, including the soil, the air, our water and food supplies, our pets, people we come in contact with and all of the surfaces we touch. However, most people don't realize that the home of all places is host to more germs than most public places.

A global hygiene study was conducted by The Hygiene Council, which is funded by Reckitt Benckiser, the parent company of the disinfectant products under the name Lysol. The study they conducted included more than 10,000 people worldwide, including about 1,000 people in the U.S. In the survey, only 5% of the U.S. participants answered "in the home" when they were asked where they thought children are most likely to come in contact with the most germs.

Their study also revealed that 55% of all respondents worldwide thought the garbage can would pose the greatest risk of transmitting germs to the family. However, the fact of the matter is the bath tub actually harbors …

The Nature of HIV

The contagious nature of HIV places it in a different class than other chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, cancer, diabetes, and so forth. The contagious nature of HIV has a more debilitating psychosocial and psychological impact on the ill person's mental and emotional state than non-contagious diseases and often leads to self-imposed isolation and a feeling of being totally inadequate.

HIV medications can help the body of the infected person but that person's feelings of self-worth, self-esteem, and self-confidence suffer from a staggering blow that must be attended to just as directly as the treatment of their physical body.

Healing the mind of the HIV infected person goes a long way in healing the body of that person because the healthy mental state of the mind will produce far more antibodies to combat intrusions than a mental state that is depressed and dispirited about the condition of its physical health.

The most dangerous mindset that a person who is infected…

Why the World Needs Empaths, and How Empaths Can Survive the World

In her New York Times bestseller, Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life (2011), Dr. Judith Orloff defines empaths as "highly sensitive, finely tuned instruments... that feel everything, sometimes to an extreme, and are less apt to intellectualize feelings."

There is no doubt that empaths are special, sensitive, and beautiful people. Without them, the world would be one without passion, love, understanding, and support.

All people need empaths in their lives.

The sad fact is that many empaths suffer from constant fears, stress, anxiety, or a lack of meaning in their lives. Empaths are heroes, because, unlike many of us, they choose not to keep their souls and their compassion hidden from others. They make themselves available without question-whenever needed-and surround those who need them in a beautiful circle of love.

Our planet needs empaths.

They have the power to make other people great; unfortunately, they don't know how to …

Why Your Mental Illness Struggle Is Inspiring

Dear Fred,

Your mental illness struggle is inspiring. I know you will disagree, but I hope you will read this and come to understand that you really are an inspiration.

I see the efforts you make just to function. I know the risks you have to take, the faith you must show, simply to do what many people take for granted. Daily things that seem easy to so many. The fact that you do these things when you're feeling so empty, afraid, and de-energised is inspiring.

The strength you show in your weakness, to share so honestly when you can; I find that amazing. That you can be courageous enough to be vulnerable when you've possibly never felt so vulnerable. I want to encourage you. Keep it up. Keep being you!

The fact that you keep showing up the best you can, even on days when you're unable to leave the house, and especially when some days you feel hopeless and barren, says to me that you're a fighter and not a quitter. Even if you feel like a quitter.

You have told me you often…

Type 2 Diabetes - Are These Three "Healthy" Foods Raising Your Blood Sugar Levels?

As you go about managing your Type 2 diabetes, it is important you stop and consider all the foods you are eating, as some may not be quite as healthy as you had hoped. Many people get caught up in the notion of thinking if food is not processed and is in its natural condition it must mean it is a healthy choice. And, for the most part, it is.

But a few food choices are managing to slip under the radar. Let's take a closer look at three seemingly healthy foods Type 2 diabetics should consider passing on...

1. Milk. Milk is often touted as providing plenty of calcium for strong bones and also offers a good dose of protein. Seems great, right? Well, not so fast. The bigger issue with milk happens to be the sugar content. While no sugar is added, milk is naturally high in lactose and can contain up to nearly 10 grams per cup.

When milk is pasteurized, the process turns lactose into beta-lactose: sugar that is quickly absorbed into our bloodstream.

If you drink three glasses of milk each…

Type 2 Diabetes - Stomach Bypass Surgery May Be Helpful in Diabetic Kidney Disease

Stomach bypass surgery, originally developed for weight loss in highly obese individuals, is now used for Type 2 diabetes control as well. Scientists at Heidelberg University in Heidelberg, Germany, found the procedure is also suitable for helping diabetic kidney disease.

The journal Deutsches �rzteblatt International reported in December 2016 on twenty people taking insulin for Type 2 diabetes and who saw improvement in their kidney function after the roux-en-y gastric bypass (RYGB). These Type 2 diabetics were moderately overweight or obese, with a body mass index ranging between 25 and 35. One year later and again at two years later, blood and urine testing showed their kidneys were working more efficiently and clearing more waste from their bloodstream. The researchers concluded the RYGB stomach bypass surgery could be a treatment option for overweight or moderately obese Type 2 diabetics with diabetic nephropathy.

Signs and symptoms of diabetic nephropathy include...

Quit Smoking - The Road Ahead

One of the reason many people struggle to quit or endlessly delay the moment is because they can't see the road ahead or they are looking down the wrong road altogether.

The wrong road has only the imagined problems along the way. Suffering with cravings, even though at worst they are short lived. What about not being able to relax, and having your stress run out of control without nicotine, or having to breathe all of that fresh air, perhaps your concern is having a spare hand wandering around, and not knowing what to do with it.

Or maybe you are concerned about the government not collecting enough tax, or the cigarette companies suffering without your help. Is that you will be so bored that you will resort to filling your blood with toxic chemicals so that you won't have to find another way to occupy five minutes.

Possibly you are using cigarettes to lose weight, by attacking your liver with toxins, the very organ which breaks down fat! Or are you afraid that you won't be a…

Wheels and Tyres: A Quick Way to Upgrade Your Car

The engine is what makes the car a muscle car, which means that this is probably the most expensive way to upgrade your car. Most people start with the exterior of the vehicle before enhancing the performance of the car.

The wheels and tyres are the quickest way to upgrade your car. Why? That's where the simple performance starts. You might not believe it but the tyres can affect the way any car drives.

How do you want your car to look?

Many people go for the racing look. Low profiles are what give your car racing appeal. Keep in mind that if the tyre touches the car whilst you turn the wheel you can't keep them on. This could cause serious accidents and wear your expensive tyres. Race car drivers use low profiles in racing cars because of how much more the tyre will grip whilst driving. This increases speed.

The racing look also needs a shiny set of wheels. These kind of wheels have quite the diameter on them to fit into the tyre. Not only do they have to be stable but they need …

Which Cars Are the Best to Modify?

Looking to change the face of your car? Before deciding on the spot on what to do, think about how you can change the car to look interesting and not weird.

The Volkswagen is one of the most common cars to be modified. The reason for this is that not only is it an affordable car but it also has an ergonomic engine that works well with aerodynamics whilst traveling. The newer models also look amazing with lower profile tyres. Old or new, this car can definitely look great when modified.

Ford is a fast little monster that can take the streets on like no other four-cylinder vehicle. The suspension can be lowered to give it that drag racing look. Not to mention the stunning wheels that can be put on the car to give it the proper street racer look.

Subaru is not the most common car in town but it is definitely the only car you see that will not be modified. These cars resemble racing cars. The suspension is always hectically lowered with a wing installed on the back. Sometimes you will see th…

Tata Hexa Reviews: Specifications, Variants, Features and Price

Till January 18, 2017, domestic car maker Tata Motors had Tiago hatchback to make it fly on the sky of success with its remarkable performance and over whelming response from Indian car enthusiasts. But, now the native car maker has one more name to enjoy this ride of success in the form of Hexa SUV, which made its debut on January 18, 2017 and succeeded in receiving the same encouraging response from the motorists which its sibling Tiago had received almost a year. However, the encouraging response received by Hexa becomes more important in current scenario, because of the internal disturbances taking place inside the house of native car maker.

The internal condition of Tata Motors after termination of Cyrus Mistry as the CEO of company is not hidden from anyone, but ignoring all those issues launching the new product strictly according to determined schedule is enough to reveal the commitment of Tata Motors towards its customers.
So, won't it be interesting to know about the featu…

How Your Tyres Can Save Fuel

Ever wonder why adverts say that their tyres can save you a lot of money? With technology we are finding ways to save as much money as possible. One of the main expenses that we have in our daily lives is paying for fuel. As we run out of the fossil fuel it gets more expensive.

Tyres are engineered to give the driver a smoother ride. Every day they design a tyre with a tread or material that can be used to make your drive less bumpy and rough.

The main factors that cause a high usage of fuel are the heavier cars. Not only does the shaft have to give a great force to pull the car along but it also has to be able to grip onto the surface.

When it comes to the faster, higher performing cars the tyres need to have more contact with the floor and a narrower tread. Although these cars already use quite an amount of fuel, the tyres will help the car from consuming too much.

The less you have to rev your car the less fuel will be used in the process of driving. An example of over-revving would be…

It's Important to Know Everything Before Looking for the Perfect Decal Graphics

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of a bike must be in want of decal graphics.

Because they are amongst the most important adorations for a bike. They can make the bike look more attractive and presentable than it initially was. Even though they are by no means a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing for the bike, constant replacement might still be a problematic issue, financially, structurally or otherwise. Therefore, make thorough research when looking for perfect decal graphics.

Here are a couple of pointers that one might find extremely helpful while hunting for it.

First and foremost, be absolutely certain regarding the purpose for which they are to be used. If they are needed to hide old damage in a fanciful manner, make a thorough analysis of the size and shape of the damage and then select the appropriate size of the graphics. This is because, the right size will wholly cover the blemish, and will not leave any of the unwanted part exposed. Therefore, pi…

Choosing the Best Blonde Hair Highlights

If you are thinking of adding some highlights to your blonde hair, there are things you need to consider before doing this. The best highlights will depend on several things.

• Your skin tone
• Your natural hair color
• The health of your hair

To create the most natural looking results you may need to choose two or more highlight colors. Once you have made your decision about the highlight color to use you will need to choose the density, placement, and thickness of the color. These will help you determine whether our highlights will completely transform your hair color or just add depth to the color.

Skin tone

Against this skin tone, the highlights that would look good are caramel, golden, or strawberry undertones. You have a cool skin tone if you have light eyes and fair skin. To enhance this skin tone you should choose ash blonde or p…

The Don'ts of Skincare That Every Girl Needs to Ignore

Here are a few things that you need to avoid if you want a glowing soft skin within a short span of time:

1. Foods to Avoid:

If we start debating on a general skincare note, the conversation for the unhealthy food for skin will never come to an end. Therefore, if we segregate it on a larger scale, you must bear in mind that caffeine, oily eatables, and consuming too much sweet can have an extremely adverse effect on the condition of your skin. Whatever that you consume has a direct impact on your skin, and eating the things like French fries and chocolates on a regular basis becomes the cause of constant breakouts.

2. Don't Exfoliate Too Much:

There is no harm in moisturizing daily but when it comes to exfoliation, you should keep a strong check on your routine so as not to overdo it. The skin needs a specific time to recover and to let the cleansing and toning to start its work. If you exfoliate or use scrubs on a regular basis, the skin cells can be damaged, which will eventually ca…

Osteoporosis and Bone Density Drugs May Be a Problem

Women over 50 should be aware that their bones are thinner and this begins as early as age 30. Osteopenia is a lower bone density due to age and some doctors prescribe bone building drugs for it. It is not as severe as osteoporosis.

An American study showed some time ago that some women are taking way too many drugs for osteoporosis. In short they are being over-treated for bone loss and these drugs have serious side effects. The gist of it is that many menopausal women may be taking drugs they don't need.

The FDA in America has reported serious side effects of many of the bone-strengthening medications and that some women should not be taking them until they really need them. Whilst it is true that for women with osteoporosis, bone-strengthening medications can lower the chances of breaking a bone, experts argue that women with Osteopenia do not necessarily need the drugs. They are being taken at too early an age because women under 65 are being encouraged to have bone density test…

Type 2 Diabetes - Do You Eat Aimlessly?

There is much to be said about poor eating habits and behaviors. Arguably, inferior food choices are the number one cause of most health problems affecting adults today. For a case in point, consider Type 2 diabetes. It's a disease mostly brought on by an unhealthy diet and overall lifestyle. What was once a not so well-known condition based on its historical roots is now a modern-day pandemic with millions diagnosed around the world. It is projected by the year 2030, a whopping 1 in 10 adults worldwide will have Type 2 diabetes - this accounts for more than 550 million people.

It is true one's eating habits determine a person's future well-being.

One question more people ought to answer is whether they are guilty of aimless eating. It's exactly what it sounds like: eating without purpose and direction, sometimes in an uncontrollable manner. We are all guilty of aimless eating at times, so don't feel ashamed to relate. After all, as human beings, we are not infallibl…

In February of 2016, the journal Diabetologia reported on a study carried out by the Technical University of Munich and several other research institutions in Germany. Scientists there compared HbA1c changes in people who had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. They found diabetics who had the most unsteady HbA1c levels were at risk for...

strokes took place in 1 percent of the participants with steady HbA1c levels, versus 29 percent of those with variable HbA1c levels.

Type 2 diabetic who controlled their HbA1c levels steadily had a 2 percent risk of developing low blood sugar readings.

BODYBUILDING & "Paralysis Through Over-Analysis" or "Don't Over-Think Bodybuilding"

Over the past month I have been thinking about the successful people as well as the unsuccessful people in bodybuilding, health and fitness in general. I have a LOT of contact with people locally as well as worldwide and here's what I have noticed.

"There are many smart trainees who spend way too much time pondering different strategies and ideas regarding training and nutrition. I try and get their mind back to reality. Don't over-think bodybuilding!"

This type of person is very knowledgeable and reads a lot. They are well informed and have researched all the latest training and diet information. They can discuss all the virtues and drawbacks of the different diets and workout programs on the market. They can also tell you the latest news about various internet muscle building Guru's, bodybuilding champions and fit movie stars. Unfortunately, despite all of their knowledge about bodybuilding diets and training routines it doesn't seem to be doing them much goo…
