Get Advantages from Magnesium

Combine magnesium with vitamin B6 and you can relieve most of PMS symptoms along with dissolving calcium oxalate kidney stones.

But watch that calcium intake in supplement form. Over consumption of calcium can actually contribute to magnesium deficiency.

We’ve talked about your body being over acidic before on these pages and that is no different here in magnesium deficiency. Magnesium along with potassium are the first minerals to be lost in an over-acid condition of the body. Remember we want to keep our bodies in the 7.3 ph range on the ph scale. When we get below that number we are susceptible to disease and or worse. Alcohol, diuretics, diarrhea, fluoride, and vitamin D can deplete the body of magnesium.

How do I know if I am Magnesium deficient? Well odds are you probably are. But your Doctor can tell by giving you a standard serum magnesium blood test.

Conditions that might prevail if you are severely magnesium deficient are many but I will list a few here. Abdominal Pain and Inflammation, Adrenals

Tips Manage Asthma

First, it is important to learn how to identify the things and situations that can trigger your asthma symptoms. Your asthma can be aggravated by intense cardiovascular exertion. If so, take greater care when engaging in exercise. Perhaps animal dander is your primary trigger. If this is the case, try to avoid spending time in environments where pets are known to live. By proactively managing your activities in this way, preventing exposure to asthma triggers is easier than you may have initially thought.

You should learn how inhalers work and how they can be used most effectively. Familiarity with inhalers may come through personal experience combined with information from your physician. Regardless of how it is acquired, knowledge about the proper way to utilize an asthma inhaler is critical to effective management of symptoms of the condition.

Do not hesitate to work together with your doctor to develop an appropriate symptom management strategy for your needs. Everyone is different, so it is important to discuss a customized plan for handling symptoms and circumstances

Dry Eye Syndrome

The symptoms of this condition are the following: irritation, dryness, a burning sensation in the eyes, blurry vision, and grittiness. Additional symptoms include excessive tearing and watery eyes.

The eyes consists of 3 different tear layers. The first layer is called the Mucus Layer. The function of this particular layer is the production of tears that provide protection from microbial bacteria in the eyes thereby keeping the cornea safe from infections. The second layer is called the watery layer which provides the eyes with tear production content that consists mainly of 90% water. The third layer is called the Oily layer. The function of this layer is to prevent the evaporation of tears in the tear film on the cornea which can aid in preventing dry eyes. If one of these layers are not functioning properly, for instance in the case of the oily layer, ceasing to work properly, there is no oily lubrication provided to maintain moisture in the tear film. As a result of this the tears evaporate thereby causing the problem of dry eyes. Also, the eye’s immune system can go haywire and compensate for the dryness in the eyes or lack of tear

Selenium And Eye Health

Selenium is a trace mineral that is found in various concentrations in the soil and the water. Its health benefits include a variety of purposes from the prevention of heart disease, various forms of cancer, to the promotion of a stronger immune system. This trace mineral also supports the health of the Thyroid.

Eye Health Benefits: scientific research study showed that Selenium may protect the eye lens and prevent the age related vision disease cataracts. This is due to the fact that Selenium is a component of an enzyme found in the mother of all antioxidants; L-Glautathione. This is an essential antioxidant critical in maintaining healthy eyesight. Research suggests that lower levels of this essential antioxidant contributed to an increased risk for cataract formation.

When Zinc is combined with Selenium a benefit may be achieved in terms of a reduction in the risks for the development of Glaucoma. This is a serious eye condition characterized by an unhealthy increase in eye pressure. It results in damage to the optic nerve and if it is untreated it can lead to blindness.

Selenium provides general health support in terms of various health functions in the human body.

You must Brushing Teeth

There are three major parts of proper, at-home dental care: flossing, brushing and regular professional cleanings and check-ups.

Flossing

Flossing is necessary in removing the food particles from between your teeth. If this debris isn’t removed, it will decay and rot, cause plaque to accumulate. This plaque can breakdown tissue in your tooth enamel as well as the soft tissue of the surrounding gums.

Flossing reaches the tight, hard-to-reach places that a toothbrush can’t get to.

It is recommended that you floss at least once a day, preferably multiple times a day after eating.

Brushing

Daily teeth brushing is important in removing food and drink particles that off the surface of your teeth. The surface of your teeth is where the majority of debris will accumulate.

If your teeth are not brushed regularly, plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth cause erosion of your tooth enamel. Your tooth enamel is the outer protective layer of your tooth. If your enamel is destroyed, the vulnerable, inner portion of your tooth is exposed to bacteria that can lead to permanent staining and possible infection and decay.

Besides scrubbing off bacteria

Dizziness and Vertigo

Regular folk might think that vertigo is just dizziness, but in the medical profession it is a very specific type of dizziness. Vertigo is more than a sense of being giddy, but instead it is a sensation that the world is spinning. It is also not similar to a fear of heights or acrophobia. Rather, even if the environment is not moving at all, the person who suffers from vertigo feels as if the world moves all the time. It is also different from a certain type of fainting sensation or disequilibrium. The type of dizziness that is felt in vertigo is a form of spinning due primarily to a pathological condition of the vestibular system which is found within the inner ear.

There is a set of associated symptoms that characterize a state of vertigo. Some of these symptoms are tinnitus or ringing in the ears, hearing loss, vomiting, and nausea. There are a couple of areas that may be problematic, thus resulting in the physical symptoms. If there is a disturbance in the labyrinth within the inner ear or in the auditory nerve pathways, vertigo may result. These disturbances may result from inner ear inflammation,

Onions Improve Vision

Onions are part of the family of vegetables known as alliums. This eye food is known as one of the most commonly cultivated class of vegetables with close cousins such as chives, garlic and Chinese onions to name a few. These vegetables come from a subcategory of phytochemical rich foods. They possess medicinal healing properties that protect the heart and the immune system from free radicals that destroy healthy cells in the body. Here are some vision health benefits of onions:

Onions possess sulfur compounds that are responsible for making an essential antioxidant that is vital in protecting eye health called L- Gluatathione. This particular antioxidant protects against oxidative damage in the eyes by protecting and strengthening the eye lens. This antioxidant protection reduces the incidence for eye diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Due to the fact that eating onions increases L- Glutathione levels, the antioxidant action of this master antioxidant safeguards the health of the eye lens and reduces the risk for cataract formation. Additionally, red onions consist of quercetin; another essential vision promoting nutrient that plays a role in improving poor eyesight and preventing cataract formation.
Onions possess a nutrient called quercetin

Some Solutions for Bad Breath

Watch Your Diet

Some foods such as garlic and onions are especially potent-smelling. Foods high in fat and those that are processed can also increase the stench of your breath.

A healthy diet consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and proteins is most effective at minimizing bad breath.

Certain herbs, such as fennel, have been used in multiple cultures for centuries as a cure for bad breath. Chewing on herbs, nuts and seeds between large meals can lower the smell of your breath.

You’ve likely heard of the importance of staying adequately hydrated. Drinking plenty of water makes you feel better, think more clearly, help your body function properly and cleanse and detoxifies the body.

Drinking water also helps reduce bad breath.

Water doesn’t have the calories, caffeine and cavity-causing sugars other beverages have, so it is encouraged that you drink as much as possible.

A mouth that is dry will smell significantly worse than one that is moist. In fact, moisture is your mouth’s main plaque and cavity-fighting defense mechanism.

Drinking water adds to the moisture of your mouth, which helps your mouth clean

Tricks Eliminate Migraine

CST utilizes tissue unwinding, pelvic releases, SI joint releases, still point, neck releases and cranial suture releases.This results in more range of motion, reduced tightness within the tissues and restores proper space between the various bones in the skull. Adequate space between the cranial bones allows the proper flow and drainage of cranial sacral fluid, lymph and blood while ensuring normal nerve conduction. Pinched nerves in the brain caused by compression of cranial bones can and does affect the whole body including migraine headaches.

Sinus drainage can also buildup in the sinus cavities due to compressed facial and cranial bones which is one of the leading causes of sinus headaches. Cranial Sacral Therapy directly impacts cranial spaces within the bones of the skull during decompression as it creates space and frees delicate impinged nerves. Restoring proper nerve conduction directly affects relief of headaches and migraines and muscle function for the body as a whole. Let’s take a closer look at this protocol.

CST is performed with the client fully clothed and lying on a massage table. The CST therapist listens for the flow of cranial sacral fluid by palpating at the feet, thighs, hips, ribs, shoulders

Prepare for Cataract Surgery

Eating

Most patients will be awake during cataract surgery and will have local anaesthetic to numb the eye, therefore it is advised to eat a good meal and keep well hydrated before you come to the clinic/hospital for surgery. If you are going to be put to sleep using general anaesthetic or be sedated, then you will not be able to eat or drink before surgery, this can vary from 6-12 hours beforehand. Your eye clinic should advise you on eating prior to surgery, but also ask them to confirm this if you are unsure or have not been advised.

Transport Home

After surgery, you will not be able to drive yourself home so you must arrange for someone to collect you, whether this be a family member or friend or a taxi. Ideally it wouldn’t be recommended you take public transport as you may struggle getting around on this. Also, you may not be able to drive for several days after the surgeries, so it is always best to have someone that can drive you around or it’s a good excuse to put your feet up and rest.

Must know about “Normal” Headache

These are the most common headaches, and what most people classify as a “Normal Headache”. This type is known for having a band like compression around the temples, forehead, or back of the head. Many people call this a stress headache because it is exacerbated by a person’s response to stressful situations. These headaches are typically mechanical in nature (tight muscles, associated with neck pain)

There is a lot of variation in the duration and intensity of this type of headache. Even though the pain can become severe (as high as a 8 or 9/10 on the pain scale), the lack of neurological symptoms imply that the nature of the headache has a different origin.

Most people control these headaches with massage, over the counter medications, and conventional chiropractic to provide short-term relief. Things like Yoga and stress management techniques are also popular treatments.

A severe headache is NOT the same as a migraine. It’s important to recognize this because the nature of a migraine headache goes beyond mechanical dysfunction. Migraines are characterized by abnormalities in blood flow to the brain, which creates some distinct neurological symptoms. Most migraines feature:

– Severe headache

Tips Protect Eyes From the Sun

Wear UV-blocking contact lenses

A lot of people with issues in eye sight need to use contact lenses. So if you are one of them, make sure your lenses are good quality and you can use them for sun protection too. A lot of contact lenses today use the UV protection technology. Only buy lenses with UV protection. You can use these even if you have no issues with your eyes. Also, don’t forget to wear sunglasses while you wear lenses. As far as UV protection is concerned, a color like G-15 would be good in contact lenses as well.

Glasses aren’t only for sunny days

About Dental Implant Procedure

There are also mini dental implants, which are prosthetic teeth that are similar to regular dental implants but smaller. These implants are usually used as a solution to replacing the patient’s missing incisors or front teeth.

Having dental implant surgery will require surgery so the dentist can place the dental implants inside your jawbone. These are what functions as the roots for your missing tooth or teeth. Once the jawbone fuses with the metal in the implants they will remain secure, does not make any noise, and no damage to your jaw burn.

Who benefits

• Patients who have a jawbone that is fully grown
• Have enough bone to support the implant
• Patients who have healthy oral tissues
• Who does not have any health problems that will interfere with the healing of the bone

One important thing to remember is that when you have such a surgery it is not a one or two visit procedure. The process can require several months of dental visits before the process is complete.

About Treating Asthma

Asthma inhalers have ingredients that relieve the inflamed lungs and respiratory parts that become constricted during an asthma attack. Bronchospasm is the most common effect of an attack. Inhalers take immediate effect on the airways thus is more preferred than oral medications.

Beside the asthma inhaler, there are also other treatments available. The type of treatment, however, is a case to case basis. You should always consult with your doctor on which type of treatment is most appropriate for you. Treatment for a person is not always the right one for another. It always depends on the causes, triggers, risk factors, severity of condition, and over all health of the person. Every person should be closely monitored after seeing a doctor so that proper treatment and care is given to the asthmatic person. There should be a asthma management plan worked out with your doctor.

A good treatment plan may include being desensitized from agents that cause the signs of asthma. Others may require certain medications that are meant to control the severity and frequency of the attacks.

Since asthma is a chronic condition, there is no absolute cure for it. The best thing you

Some Heat Stroke Prevention Steps

You can Healing Migraines With Food

Cut processed sugar from your diet.

Too much sugar causes inflammation in your body and causes blood sugar to spike and dip. Long-lasting inflammation can cause migraines. Choose whole foods like nuts, seeds, fruit, vegetables, whole grains and beans over highly processed foods like cookies, granola bars, chips and candy.

Add healthy fats to your diet.

Olives, olive oil, nuts, seeds, avocado and fatty fish combat inflammation and provide your brain with the fat it needs to fight fatigue, sharpen memory, balance mood swings and reduce migraines.

Reduce stress.

Stress increases inflammation in the body. If stress is not dealt with, over time it can become chronic. Chronic stress keeps the body in a constant state of havoc. Chronic stress causes cortisol levels to remain high which keep blood sugar levels high, narrows arteries, and reduces digestion. All of these factors can contribute to migraines. Therefore, it is so important to focus on ways to reduce stress daily. Exercise, yoga, meditation, deep breathing, and listening to music are good ways to help you wind down and keep chronic stress away.

Healthy Teeth

Diet and Dental Caries
There is now general agreement that diet probably is the most important single factor in the maintenance of sound, healthy teeth, and that an adequate diet is most essential during the period of most rapid growth. McCullum and Simmonds conclude from an experimental study that rats which are kept on a deficient diet during a part of the growing period have inferior teeth and early decay, even though an adequate diet is provided later. In the days before viosterol had been developed and before cod-liver oil was widely used, McCullum also reported that at the age of entering school 9 per cent of children who had been breast-fed for at least 6 months had dental caries, 22 per cent of children who were fed on cow’s milk or on milk mixtures, and 27 per cent who were fed on oatmeal water and other prepared foods. This would indicate that the foundation of dental health is laid very early in life, but it now appears that the prenatal period is also of great importance in this regard. Consequently emphasis is now being placed upon a proper diet during pregnancy.

Important though diet admittedly is,

Consider Braces for Children

While it’s true that many situations where a child may need braces can seem ambiguous, there are a few hard and fast rules when it comes to considering the orthodontic treatment. Some of these rules include:

· Irregular loss of baby teeth

· Shifting jaw

· Involuntary biting of the cheek or roof of the mouth

· Difficulty chewing and/or biting

· Teeth and jaw that look strangely proportioned

· Teeth that are crowed or seem to be misplaced

If you’ve noticed any of these symptoms in your child, it may be time to consult with a dentist or orthodontist about braces. The benefits of braces are also numerous, and include positives such as these:

· Positive growth influence in the jaw

· Improved self-confidence and self-image

· Improved speech

· Improved ability to eat and chew efficiently

Again, these benefits are only a small number amongst the vast array positives when it comes to braces. Suffice it to say, braces can help your child enjoy a happy, healthy mouth for a long time.

If you think your child may benefit from braces, what do
