Best Home Remedies for Asthma

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Asthma is a very common respiratory disease, it affects the trachea and bronchial tubes by becoming inflamed and plugged with mucus. This causes the airways to narrow, restricting the amount of air going to the lungs, and makes it very difficult to breathe. Asthma can occur in anyone but is very common in children and young adults.

Asthma is a chronic but treatable condition. You can manage your condition much like someone manages diabetes or heart disease. You and your doctor can work together to control asthma, reduce the severity and frequency of attacks and help maintain a normal, active life.

The rate, in which asthma attacks have increase in the pass few years is alarming, specially in children. Scientists believe that, there is a strong link between contamination in the air we breath and asthma, evidence suggest that the percentage of people who live in big cities, and have asthma attacks is far greater, than those of people who live in rural areas. However, this may not be the only reason, it is believed that genetic, food additives, toxins etc. could also contribute to asthma attacks.

Remedies for Chest Pain

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

The first thing to do when you have chest pain, is to take an aspirin and drink a glass of water. If you have left side, chest pain, there is NEVER a natural alternative or cure, until you are certain that your chest pain is not cardiac related.

Since heart attacks can mimic indigestion, and other relatively benign illnesses, it is very important that you do not waste time, if you have clammy skin, feel sick to your stomach, have pain radiating down your left arm, in your left jaw, and constricting pain in your chest.

Garlic Garlic has traditionally been used by Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans as a medication for several illnesses. Garlic contains vitamins and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin C.

Alfalfa Juice extracted from alfalfa makes a good home remedy for chest pain as it contains significant amounts of chlorophyll that would help manage many lung related diseases. They also help soften arteries and reduce the chances of cardiac chest pain.

Hibiscus tea Hibiscus tea is a traditional tea that is rich in vitamin C and minerals. It helps control cholesterol and decreases the risk of heart diseases. It also lowers hypertension and prevents other chest problems and cold.

Basil Within the list of home remedies for chest pain, basil is considered yet another effective one. Basil not only enhances the taste of your favorite dish, but also provides many health benefits. It works like medications such as aspirin to block cyclooxygenase and provide an anti-inflammatory effect. They also provide a great amount of vitamin A.

Eye shadow tips

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Matte powder eyeshadows in an array of neutral tones from light to dark are your best bets for a classic, sophisticated eye design that accents the shape and color of your eyes.
Unless you’re using just one eyeshadow color, use at least two eyeshadow brushes for application.

Prep the eyelid and under-brow area with a matte-finish concealer, foundation, and/or powder before applying eyeshadow. This ensures a smooth, even application and (if you have fair to medium skin) will also neutralize the red and blue coloration of the eyelid.

Tap off any excess eyeshadow from your brush before applying—this will prevent overapplication as well as flaking eyeshadow.

If you really want to make the color of your eyes pop, choose a contrasting color in a soft tone and apply this to the lids. Blue eyes come alive with pale peach or cantaloupe hues, green eyes seem richer with light bronze or caramel tones, hazel eyes become more alluring with chestnut and golden brown shades, and brown eyes are nicely accented by almost all neutral tones.

Symptoms and remedies of pollen allergies

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Let’s be honest. If the miserable symptoms of pollen allergies don’t push you over the edge, some allergy relief medicines can. Sure, some older allergy relief medicines ease your symptoms, but they can also leave you feeling sluggish, sleepy, and unable to concentrate at work or school.
So how can something as miniscule as pollen make you feel absolutely awful? And where do you turn for effective allergy relief when you’re plagued by weeks of impenetrable pollen?
To know what you’re up against, it’s important to know something about pollen. Pollen, the microscopic powdery granules of flowering plants, is the mechanism for the fertilization of trees, grasses, and weeds.
While pollen from plants with bright flowers like roses rarely trigger allergy symptoms, the tiny, dry pollens from grasses, trees, and weeds are the main allergy culprits. Even though your yard may have no true pollen offenders, pollen particulates blow in the wind.
Certain nutrients are also supposed to be helpful in fighting pollen allergies. Quercetin, grape seed extract and vitamin C are all good sources of allergy relief. You can buy supplements or take them in through the foods you eat. Apples, bananas, onions and red wine all contain allergy-fighting nutrients. Plus, eating spicy foods like cayenne pepper, ginger, onion, garlic and fenugreek helps to thin the mucus that causes congestion. Rinsing your nose with saline is also a good trick to dilute mucous and get allergens out of your system. However, for some people, eating bananas, cucumbers, sunflower seeds, chamomile and Echinacea can worsen allergic symptoms.

Ulcers In Your Foot Is Very Bad

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Foot ulcers arise from a breakdown of the skin surface due to slow necrosis. The most common are the result of:: continuous trauma; loss of fatty tissue; diabetes and vascular insufficiency which results in diminished nutrition of the skin. An ulcer may exude either tissue fluid, which will be clear or pus, which indicates a secondary infection.

Self-treatment is not recommended for this serious condition, consultation with a State Registered Chiropodist/Podiatrist or your family doctor is recommended, they will evaluate the particular form of ulcer and choose the appropriate treatment plan.

Some of the things that the Podiatrist or your G.P. will do are:

Check the pulses and test for neuropathy (lack of sensation to; touch; pain; hot and cold) if the pulses are diminished then a Doppler ultra-sound can be used to determine the extent of the circulation. If there is a decrease in circulation then referral to a vascular surgeon is indicated.

The vascular surgeon will carry out various tests to determine the level of the blockage of the artery, if the artery is blocked in a specific point, then various surgical procedures can be employed. Balloon Angioplasty, laser Angioplasty and stents are employed to open up the blood flow to the foot.
