Delicious Anti-Inflammatory Drink

We heard from the neighbor that her daughter is in the intensive care unit right now in other state due to an infection of the esophagus and that she couldn’t breath on her own. Her condition may be a little too serious than what it is since they have to insert a tube in so that she could breath. How awful is that to receive such a news like that knowing that the person is a working individual who drives 16 hours from her home to where we live to visit her mother. The news is so shocking and we are hoping for her recovery and that she will be doing fine whatever the doctors have decided to help her gain back her breathing.

It is really important to be cautious on what we eat and what we do everyday to our body because even the healthiest person on Earth could get sick too. With that said, proper diet and healthy lifestyle should what we do and take supplements as well to help. Once people reach the age 50 or over, that is when body and joint pains start to appear and for that taking Nopalea would be great.

But what is Nopalea (No-pah lay’uh) by the way? For your information, it is the delicious anti-inflammatory wellness drink that gets its inflammation fighting power from the Nopal cactus fruit (Opuntia Ficus Indica) of the Sonoran Desert. Nopal cactus fruit contains a powerful class of antioxidants called bioflavonoids that are scientifically proven to help the body reduce inflammation.

Use Healthy and Natural Beauty Products for Healthier You Inside and Out

People especially women love to look good and feel good inside out. Eating healthy or proper diet and exercise are the key factors to living a healthy lifestyle. Women want to be appreciated of how they look and what they do. For some whose job is interacting with different people every day, they want to ensure that their overall physical appearance and well-being are maintained every day. 

Wearing make-ups enhance the look of a woman and boost her looks. But not all women are aware that using healthy and natural cosmetics & beauty products are beneficial to them. Beauty products include; lotions, deodorants, shampoos, moisturizers, mascaras, lipsticks, foundations and a whole lot more. When they are accustomed to doing things the way they always have, they may not see why they would want switching to a natural healthy and beauty products.

 Here are the reasons why they should switch and adopt a new natural lifestyle with awesome healthy and natural beauty products that can greatly help them look and feel great.

First, products made from conventionally produced ingredients can have a negative environmental impact. The manufacturing of chemical-heavy health and beauty products puts those chemicals which they might not know present in the current products they are using.

Second, avoid skin irritation caused by harsh chemicals, artificial colors and fillers in skin care products and makeup can cause redness, irritation and breakouts. In conventionally produced products, chemicals are commonly found. The only way to avoid these irritations is to use natural makeup, skin care products and body products work with your skin instead of going against it.

Third, others have a strong allergy when it comes to smelling strong artificial fragrances. They are specifically designed to cover up the smell of other chemicals used in traditional beauty products which can cause headaches in many people. Unlike using natural beauty products, they smell like their natural ingredients scented with natural essential ingredients, not a cocktail of chemicals.

 Fourth, the presence of Parabens. They are used conventionally produced health and beauty products as a preservative to extend the shelf life of products. Parabens, however, are synthetic and mimic your body’s natural hormones that can alter functions of your body’s endocrine system. Whereas, natural beauty products use natural preservatives such as acai berry extract, maracuja oil goji berry extract, olive esters, pepperment oil and many others found in Tarte high-performance naturals line of products.

 Did you know that the average woman applies up to 200 chemicals to her skin every day through cosmetics, lotions and hair-care products? By using natural health and beauty products, they can greatly eliminate many of these harmful chemicals and replace them with natural ingredients that are not only protect them from harm, but can even be beneficial to their body.

I Paid More For Shipping than the Items

Look at the attachment below, don’t you feel aggravated by some companies who charge you more for shipping than the items you want to buy? I just made this transaction 30 minutes ago due to the lack of deodorant, lol. This is for a Nivea deodorant which will be shipped from India or Thailand.

If only there is Nivea whitening and deodorant available here in the US, I could have saved the shipping or it will be much cheaper if we can buy it here. You see, there is a benefit if you use this particular item. My main purpose I bought this product is for a clearer and fairer underarms plus it is a deodorant not an anti-perspirant which a lot of women do not know using anti-perspirants can cause cancer because of its active ingredient “Aluminum zirconium” found in most anti-perspirants/deodorants sold on the market.

Sweat as we all know is a waste product released by our body and we are supposed to let it not to be stopped…

I bought 4 pieces of deodorants which only cost me $2.01 a piece but the shipping for each is $4.99. Heck, if I don’t need it, I would pay for such choking shipping fee.

The Hair and Health Connection

It stands to reason that a head full of beautiful, healthy, vibrant hair is an indicator of good health. On the other hand, if your locks are lank and limp it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to rush to the doctor. You may just need a little help to get your hair back on track. Some of the best hair growth products are easily available with just a click of the mouse.

 So how do you tell if you need a refresher course in hair care or if you need to make a doctor’s appointment?

  • If your hair is visibly thinning… you may have an iron or protein deficiency. Hair is largely made up of protein and if your body doesn’t have enough of it, your hair will stop growing. Thinning hair can also be a sign of thyroid disease, so if increasing the iron and protein in your diet doesn’t help, consider having your thyroid checked.
  • If your hair is brittle and breaking… poor diet and nutrition – as well as over styling – may be to blame. Hair will get dull and dry when exposed repeatedly to heat and chemical processes such as dying or straightening. If your hair is starting to look like a bird’s nest, try eating a healthy diet rich in essential fatty acids – a deep conditioning treatment wouldn’t hurt, either.
  • If you have dandruff… you may have an inflammatory condition of the scalp known as seborrheic dermatitis. While it may be tempting to treat the flakes with a moisturizing shampoo, you’ll be better off choosing a medicated shampoo instead.

 If you’re still not sure which approach is best for your hair, resources such as information from Hair Energizer can be a huge help. With a little bit of help, gorgeous hair is within your reach.

Tooth Discoloration – Causes& Preventive Measures

Discoloration of teeth (i.e. formation of pale yellow colored layer on the teeth also known as ‘Dental Plaque’) is major problem faced by many people. It can lead to real embarrassment when speaking with friends, colleagues or any one for that matter. One loses on the confidence and can’t even smile or talk with ease. It is also not good for dental health as it can severely cause damage to teeth and gums over a period of time if not prevented timely. There are many reasons that can lead to discoloration of the teeth. Let us analyze all the probable causes for the same. As we know that prevention is better than the cure. So, knowing the causes of teeth discoloration in advance can lead us to stop it from happening in the first place.

The major causes

  1. Foods & Drinks–Some drinks like Coffee, colas, tea, wines and certain vegetables and fruits like apples, potatoes are known to stain the teeth. However, excessive intake of these items can cause the discoloration of teeth and are fine if consumed moderately.
  1. Tobacco Intake – Smoking and chewing tobacco are considered to be a major cause for stained teeth.
  1. Poor Dental Hygiene – inadequate cleaning of teeth by brushing, flossing, etc. causes the formation of dental plaque as the tooth-discoloring substances like coffee, tobacco, etc. are not taken care of. It is recommended that one should brush at least twice daily – once in the morning before having the first meal and in night before going to bed.
  1. Diseases – some diseases that affect the enamel and dentin can also cause discoloration of teeth. Their treatment procedure can also have an effect on the color of the teeth. For instance, treatments like neck/head radiation, chemotherapy, etc. are known to cause teeth discoloration if continued over a prolonged period of time. An infant can have discolored teeth if the mother had some infections (that affects development of enamel) when pregnant.
  1. Medications–Some antibiotic like tetracycline, doxycycline, etc. can cause teeth discoloration in children below the age of 9. Mouth washes and rinses that contain cetylpyridinium chloride and chlorhexidine can also stain the teeth.  Antihistamines (example – Benadryl), high BP drugs, antipsychotic drugs also cause discoloration of teeth when consumed in excess.
  1. Dental Materials–Some materials which are used in the dental treatments (like amalgam restorations), especially those containing silver sulphide can cause gray-black coloration of the teeth. You can consult with Cosmetic Dentistry Glasgow for the same.
  1. Advancing Age–With ageing, it’s normal that enamel’s outer layer gets worn out and reveals the natural pale yellowish color of dentin.
  1. Genetics–It’s natural in some people to have thicker or brighter enamel than in others.
  1. Environment – Excessive exposure of teeth to fluoride, from environmental sources (example –  water containing high levels of fluoride) or excessive use of substances like rinses, supplements, toothpaste, etc.containing high fluoride levels can lead to teeth discoloration
  1. Trauma – A fall from a height can disturb the formation of enamel in young children when their teeth have not developed properly. Prolonged trauma can also cause teeth discoloration in adults.

How to Prevent Teeth Discoloration

Preventing your teeth from discoloration is a matter of just few lifestyle changes. For instance,

  • Cutting back or quitting on coffee and smoking can help in preventing teeth discoloration.
  • Maintaining dental hygiene by regular brushing and flossing of teeth.
  • A periodical check-up from a dentist

 

Teeth Whitening Treatment Options

There are various dental treatments for preventing or removing teeth discoloration. They vary depending upon the causes of discoloration. Some of them are –

  • Proper brushing and flossing of teeth
  • Avoiding foods and drinks that causes stains
  • Bondings
  • Veneers
  • Using whitening agents (Over-the-Counter)

It is important to keep your teeth from discoloration (dental plaque) so that you don’t have to face embarrassment while talking, smiling or eating. For any further details on the same, you can consult a good dentist. For instance, check out glasgowsmileclinic.com

 

Old Folks That Need Tender Loving Care

My husband and I love to travel down South because it is where his late father spent the last four years of his life. From California moved to San Antonio, Texas at a nursing home where men and women served in the Air Force during their younger working years of their lives. When he was still alive, we used to spend weekends with him and some pretty good time to sit with him especially at the dining area and in his room.

While being at the Air Force Village 1, I didn’t just sit there and closed my mind of the surroundings of the area. I was also quietly observing how caregivers and nurses treat and provide care to their residents if their families or relatives weren’t around. I could tell they were all good workers and really took care of the elderly folks that need tender loving care. I remember one time there was one who had a small cut in his hand, the nurse ran to where he was at and took care of the wound. I saw the push cart with some in it, Medline wound care supplies similar to what I just saw at parentgiving.com.

There were times too when we happened to be at the village when the staff were busy changing bed linens, bathing the elderly and changing diapers to those were unable to do it themselves. Seeing them in a state where they are helpless makes me don’t want to reach their age because I don’t want to be of somebody’s burden.

Good Benefits Of Drinking Wine

I am sure many of you out there know that there are good health benefits drinking wine. By doing so of course drinking wine in moderation can reduce heart-attack risk, promotes longevity, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of Type 2 Diabetes and many more.

I am not much of a wine drinker nor my husband. I can only have a taste of wine during special occasions and could only do a few sips and that’s it. I guess I may have to keep a bottle or two of wine at home so I can have at least half a glass a day. Although I am perfectly healthy yet I find the need of drinking wine is a must.
