Resveratrol Cancer

In the recent researches, it has been proven that the red wine extracts like Resveratrol are the best to trigger anti aging and regeneration of cells. The scientists in the USA have recently concluded that Resveratrol, a red wine extracts, is the best anti oxidant until date to tackle cancer. Many researchers have proven that this natural antioxidant found in grape skins and red wine can help destroy pancreatic cancer cells by reaching to the cell’s core energy source, or mitochondria, and crippling its function.Resveratrol is the most concentrated in the red wine. Resveratrol is a benzoyl chemical, which is very effective in chain reaction in the body.

The study also showed that when the pancreatic cancer cells when doubly treated with the antioxidant, resveratrol, and irradiated, the combination induced a type of cell death called apoptosis, an important goal of cancer therapy.

Laboratory researches to have proven that resveratrol acts in the following ways to tackle the carcinogenic cells:

Pancreatic cancer cell membranes have proteins, it reduces the action of the proteins in that membrane that are responsible for pumping chemotherapy out of the cell, making the cells chemo-sensitive.

Triggering the production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), when ROS is increased, cells burn out and die.

Thus, it causes apoptosis, which is the state when the carcinogenic cells are no longer able to grow.

Despite the widespread interest in antioxidants, some physicians are concerned antioxidants might end up protecting tumors. In fact, the research by some of the leading cut edge Surgeons showed that suggests resveratrol not only reaches its intended target, injuring the nexus of malignant cells, but at the same time protects normal tissue from the harmful effects of radiation during chemotherapy in the case of proplonged stage of cancer.

Pure Resveratrol has been proclaimed as anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic agents, and for their ability to modulate cell growth. Other well-known antioxidants derived from natural sources include caffeine, melatonin, flavonoids, polyphenol, and vitamins C and E.

Foods that worsen gastroesophageal reflux

You felt an unpleasant sensation of sourness in the mouth, because of the liquid from the stomach? This reaction is called acid reflux and gastro-esophageal reflux is a disorder of the esophageal sphincter, the valve located between the esophagus and stomach.
Sphincter is to prevent the ascent of stomach contents into the esophagus. When there is a disturbance, sphincter gastric juice passes from the stomach into the esophagus.

Manifestations of gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD)

There are many events that may indicate gastro-esophageal reflux:
* Burns in the neck and chest which usually occur in a lying position and usually occur after eating;
* Heartburn;
* Hoarseness;
* Difficulty swallowing;
* Cough or pant, often at night, similar to an asthma attack;
* Angina pains.

Complications of gastro-esophageal reflux

In most cases, gastro-esophageal reflux is trivial and does not represent any serious character. However, a gastro-esophageal reflux can complicate in esophagitis caused by an inflammation of the lining of the esophagus. In turn esophagitis can lead to serious complications for the body: esophageal ulcers, GI bleeding, and esophageal cancer in rare cases.

Prevention of GERD

Many foods and drinks are risk factors for gastro-esophageal reflux. Here are the main foods that favor the occurrence of sour sensation in mouth:
* Chocolate helps relax the sphincter muscles which favors gastric movement.
*Milk- fat, protein and calcium present in milk greatly stimulates gastric acidity.
*Fatty foods – foods high in fat increase the secretion of stomach acid. This category includes: cheese, butter, sauces, pastries, etc.
* Citrus – acidity of oranges, lemons and grapefruits increases the acidity of gastric juice.
* Peppermint promotes relaxation of esophagus valve which causes gastro-esophageal reflux.
*Tomatoes and onions – these vegetables irritate the lining of the esophagus and automatically aggravate heartburns.
* Spices foods, herbs – very spicy and flavorful foods irritate the lining of the esophagus and stomach.
* Carbonated drinks can be an aggravating factor in gastro-esophageal reflux, as it causes a feeling of bloating of the stomach.
* Alcohol – alcoholic beverages such as wine, beer or strong alcohol, participate in the esophageal sphincter relaxation, thus favoring the appearance of reflux. The risk is greater when alcohol is consumed on an empty stomach.
* Coffee and tea – certain substances in coffee and tea favor relaxation of the sphincter and irritate the lining of the esophagus.

The essential element of the regime: the patient should not sleep with full stomach!
The disease in most cases will not heal because the cause of reflux remains. It can heal if the cause is delay in gastric emptying. This can happen if someone has duodenal ulcer. It can heal and if hiatal hernia coexists, it is operated and mechanical defect is resolved.
Often the cause is repetitive and transient relaxation of lower esophageal sphincter. This abnormal condition remains unfortunately. Treatment in this case does not address the cause of reflux, but involves a marked decrease in gastric acid secretion. With hygienic and dietary measures the risk of stomach acid contents reflux into the esophagus is less. One of the most important elements of this regime is represented by the idea that the patient should not sleep with a full stomach, and the interval between dinner and sleep to allow gastric emptying.

Breast Cancer Research Info

Breast cancer is considered as a fatal disease and it is known to be the number one cause of cancer fatality in women. According to American cancer society, an estimated 1.3 million new breast cancer instances are detected every year which includes 465,000 deaths. In order to productively tackle this devastating disease, we must push innovative scientists to research cancer at its most basic stage. In other words, breast cancer research work should be done at its molecular stage. Also, besides the governments, private organizations must offer flexible budget to scientists who will be doing breast cancer research work.

Proper financial support of breast cancer investigation projects; can not only lead to better prevention methods but it can also assist towards earlier detection techniques and new anticancer drugs and cure.

Not so long ago, scientists who are working towards breast cancer research project, have created and successfully tested a breast cancer vaccine which is possibly to cure women with treatment – resistant HER2 – positive breast cancer and thus be able to avoid cancer remission. Breast cancer scientists look forward to use HER2 DNA vaccines for cancer-free women, in order to avoid early development of these tumours. Today therapies such as trastuzumab and lapatimib are used towards treating breast cancer patients. However, it was lately noticed that a huge number of patients develop a resistance in trastuzumab and lapatimib. HER2 receptors are identified to promote a specifically aggressive kind of cancer that affects an estimated thirty percent of breast cancer patients. The latest breast cancer vaccine is created by the body’s own cells. It gives a cancer combating gene into cells, which subsequently produce immune system proteins and also cancer ? fighting cells.

According to the lead researcher Wei – Zen Wei, a professor of immunology and microbiology at the Karmanos Cancer Institute, the vaccine is made by using so – called naked DNA from genes that makes the HER2 receptor. This DNA is mixed with an immune stimulant. The method involved in the making of the vaccine, is called as electro oration.

In this process, pulses of electricity were used in order to inject the vaccine into the leg muscles in mice. The genes acted towards the cells, which then created HER2 receptors that led to activation of antibodies and immune cells called Killer T cells.

A Key to Solving Auto-Immune Diseases Like Rheumatoid Arthritis

A Thomsonian Naturopathic Doctor’s View of a Common Sense Way Out of the Autoimmune Disease Mess

I am a Thomsonian Naturopathic doctor and follower of Dr Samuel Thomson (the founder 1822). He believed as I have learned from his teachings and my experience that all diseases are actually simple to explain. That the more you complicate disease and medical techniques the more that people are removed from the healing process. One of the results is what you see today in these auto-immune disease epidemic nightmares.

When I was looking at autoimmune diseases in 2004 there were at that time 65 and everyone was shocked at the high number. Sadly these diseases have nearly tripled in that short period of time and today I believe the number is close to 150. But this is not the true number as anyone of those autoimmune diseases can have any number of sub-diseases with their own symptoms. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) for example, has about 100 sub-diseases.

Autoimmune diseases like RA are a disease where your immune system does not recognize you and attacks you as though you were something foreign. Here is a comparison that shows just how crazy this really is. Imagine, that in your city one day for no apparent reason the police department starts shooting at the employees of the water department, crazy huh?

Modern medicine’s answer seems like a good idea, suppress or control the immune system. But wait a minute that is like answering your city’s problem by taking away the policemen’s guns. This is unrealistic; because like your immune system the police have a vital service to perform. Shouldn’t the realistic solution be to find out why your immune system is attacking you in the first place, why the confusion?

Let me see if I can make something clear for everyone so it is easier to understand. When each cell is created by your body it gets an identifying signature a code that says it is part of you and do not attack me. You might say it is like the license plate on your car. Well, when your immune system senses this code it automatically knows that this is you and do not attack. Modern medical science calls this code a major histocompatibility complex (MHC).

As long as you have been alive your immune system has checked each of the trillions of cells in your body two times a day. The question is why, after checking the identification of your cells successfully all your life, does your immune system suddenly attack as in RA? What has happened to these cells of your body such as those in your joints that it once protected and now attacks?

Naturopaths like myself, believe that RA and all other autoimmune diseases are a symptom of a modern lifestyle and genetic weaknesses. Making the pain or symptoms go away without addressing the underlying root of the immune confusion will give your body cause and effect to bring you another autoimmune disease. And so it is, someone with an auto-immune disease tends to get another auto-immune disease and possibly more. It is like the child’s game where you knock the peg down with a hammer and another one pops up.

What is needed to prevent the immune system from making these errors? Simply eliminate from the body those things that are causing the immunity confusion. These are things that never have and never will be naturally accepted or beneficial to the human body or mind.

Objective Autoimmune Disease Causes
There are combinations of toxins in everyone’s bodies today that have never been there in all of human history. Our bodies were never designed to carry them nor do we have any use for them. Some of them are objectively toxic in nature like the heavy metals aluminum, cadmium, lead, mercury and thallium. Then you have the industrial chemicals that include hydrazine, herbicides, preservatives, dyes, plastics, bisphenol A and rubber products that are released in the environment and they number somewhere close to 85,000 thanks to the EPA and the FDA.

Note (In 2005, researchers from the Environmental Working Group found something very frightening: a cocktail of 287 pollutants – PFOA’s, pesticides, dioxins, flame retardants — in the fetal-cord blood of newborn infants from around the country).

Medical Drugs That Can Cause Autoimmune Diseases
It has been known for some time that medical drugs can trigger an autoimmune disease. Now it has been found that many medical drugs are the direct cause of various autoimmune diseases.

The Prescription Drugs
Alferon N, Allopurinol, Atenolol, Atorvastatin, captopril, Carbamazepine, chlorpromazine, Chlorthalidone, cimetidine, Ethosuximide, gold salts, griseofulvin, Hydralazine, Hydrochlorothiazide, Infergen, Inerferon Alfa, Interferons, Interleukins, Intron A, Isoniazid, Levodopa, Lithium, Lovastatin, Mesantoin, Methimazole, Methyldopa, Methylsergide, Metoprolol, Minocycline, Minoxidil, Nitrofurantoin, Ophthalmic timolol, Oral contraceptives, P-aminobenzoic, PegIntron, Penicillamine, Penicillin, Perphenazine, Phenylbutazone, Phenytoin, Pravostatin, Primidone, Procainamide, Propylthiouracil, Quinidine, Simvastatin, sulfasalazine, sulfonamides, streptomycin, Sulfonamide antimicrobials, Tetracyclines, Tiotropium Bromide inhaler, Trimethadione, Tumor Necrosis factor, Valproic acid.

Why would a medical drug that you take for your health cause you to become sick? Basically medicine is not made to help you to become healthier. Medical drugs are developed to suppress your symptoms. You would never take a pharmaceutical drug to feel healthier as you would a vitamin or herbal supplement.

Mercury in Medicine
Of course everyone knows the dangers of mercury, but modern medicine insists on putting mercury in just about everything they give us and the FDA allows them to, why? Because mercury is cheap and it works to suppress your symptoms even though over the long haul it poisons us all. How dangerous is mercury? It is the second most dangerous element on the planet next to plutonium.

Yet mercury is even found in over the counter medical drugs (OCMD) such as topical antiseptics, stimulant laxatives, diaper rash ointments (yes for babies), eye drops, nose sprays, Preparation H, Calomel body powders and talc, Mercurochrome, Merthiolate, Laxatives containing Calomel, Psoriasis ointments, Calamine lotions, Contact lens solutions and Vaginal gels – especially those that are contraceptives. And of course mercury is highly suspect as a cause in all these new autoimmune diseases and the alteration of our children’s behavior such as ADD, ADHD and Autism. Easy to see why we have health problems, isn’t it?

Why is the FDA afraid to do what is right and pull mercury out of all of these products? Because the use of mercury is so cheap and the pressure is high in the drug industry to leave it that way.

“Lawsuit to Force FDA to Comply With Law and Ban Mercury” (News of the Day 11/13/2006)
The lawsuit, originally filed in August 2006, asks the court to force the FDA to comply with existing law and regulations and provide proof of the safety and efficacy of mercury in drugs. The suit was filed because the FDA failed to answer issues raised.

Mercury is found in at least 45 different prescribed or over-the-counter drugs, including eye ointments, nasal sprays, and vaccines, most importantly, flu vaccines administered to children and pregnant women.

In a 1999 internal email, obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request, an FDA official wrote that the agency’s failure to evaluate the cumulative amount of mercury in medicine “…will raise questions about FDA being ‘asleep at the switch’ for decades by allowing a potentially hazardous compound to remain…and not forcing manufacturers to exclude it from new products….”

In a second email, the same official wrote: “…the greatest point of vulnerability on this issue is that the systematic review…by the FDA could have been done years ago and on an ongoing basis.”

Subjective Autoimmune Disease Causes
Would you be surprised to learn that something subjective like losing a loved one or getting a divorce can trigger an autoimmune disease just liked mercury can. To eliminate these and others you need to address the whole person which takes work and willingness on the part of the patient.

Your Genetic Weaknesses and Autoimmune Diseases
The genetic connection to autoimmune diseases are well established but very few people are aware of the Naturopathic Medical view of genetics and disease. A chain is the perfect object to use as an example of genetic weaknesses. There is a very old saying that goes like this, “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link”. So, there is no chain that does not have a weak link and that link can be found by exerting enough stress on the chain to break that link.

Now imagine each organ in your body alphabetically beginning with your adrenals down to your veins is a link in a chain. This chain of organs has a weak genetic link somewhere you just need to apply enough stress (through diet, toxicity and lifestyle) on the organ chain to find the weak link. Knowing you have a weak link how would you protect yourself from getting a disease in that organ? The answer is as simple as the cure for all disease. Simply do not put stress on your genetic chain with your lifestyle.

Those people whose genetic chain is already broken need to reverse what they have been doing all their life. This will take the stress off of the weak organ and give it a chance to recover. By doing the opposite I mean cleansing, detoxing, no refined foods, lots of produce, live juices and lifestyle adjustments.

One of the miracles of the human body is the replacement of each and every cell and organ over an 8 year period. To take advantage of this process you give your body everything it needs to do this to the optimum level. In other words treating your body just as I said above with the best cleansing, detoxing and the most nutritious foods, herbs, supplements and lifestyle adjustments to get the most from this building process.

Specifically What Can You Do?
Naturopaths believe disease and ill health attack you from five different areas of your life. One, what you bring into your body via food, water, air. Two, what is not eliminated; the toxins that build up encouraging the disease to start. Three, a lack of movement and exercise cause poor blood flow encouraging toxic buildup, low oxygen and poor nutrition to cells. Four, the stressful people and situations in the work place and at home. Five, a poor spiritual foundation, no belief in higher power. To reverse auto-immune diseases like RA and bring good health, the above five areas are addressed at the same time with rigorous cleansing, detoxing and lifestyle changes

Few people today realize how intensively healing and powerful Naturopathic medical treatments really are. They think of using a few herbs for this and that disease, drinking an herb tea, do a few yoga stretches etc. Which is as weak as it sounds and is also very far from the truth.

The truth is that Naturopathic Medical therapies are intense, invasive and rigorous. Juice fasting, colon, liver and kidney cleansing and detoxing, cold sheet treatments, hydro therapy, caster oil packs and blood cleansing using substantial doses of herbs, etc. All of these treatments plus making permanent changes in your lifestyle and more are part of Naturopathic Medicine’s treatments to undo RA and all auto-immune diseases. Anyone who gives these techniques their complete attention and focus will see RA and any disease including cancer disappear into their past.

I know, I used the above techniques on myself against a life threatening disease twenty years ago and they wiped my health slate clean as when I was a boy. I am 65 now; healthy and strong as a horse with zero diseases and zero medications.

20 benefits of turmeric to your health

The active ingredient of turmeric (turmeric) is curcumin. Turmeric has been used for 2,500 years in India, where it is likely to be used first as a dye.

The medicinal properties of this spice have slowly revealed themselves over the centuries. Long known for its anti-inflammatory properties, recent research has made it clear that turmeric is a natural wonder that proves beneficial in the treatment of many different health conditions from cancer to Alzheimer’s.

1. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful for disinfecting cuts and burns.
2. Combined with cauliflower, has shown to prevent prostate cancer and to stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.
3. It prevents the spread of breast cancer to the lungs in mice.
4. Melanoma can occur (a agressieven form of skin cancer) and it ensures that the existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.
5. Reduces the risk of childhood leukemia.
6. Is a natural detoxifier for the liver.
7. Alzheimer’s disease and can prevent the development of Alzheimer stagnate by “amyloid plaques” to remove build-up in the brains.
8. May occur in many different types of cancer metastases.
9. Is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many other anti-inflammatory drugs, but without side effects.
10. Has proved promising in the delay of multiple sclerosis in mice.
11. Is a natural painkiller and a COX2 inhibitor.
12. Can help with fat metabolism and helps with weight control.
13. It has long been used in Chinese medical world as a treatment for depression.
14. Because of its anti-inflammatory effect, it is a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatic arthritis.
15. Increases the effect of the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel and reduces side effects.
16. There are promising investigations underway into the effects of turmeric on pancreatic cancer.
17. Ongoing research into the positive effects of turmeric on Kahler’s disease (multiple myeloma).
18. It has been shown that it stops the growth of new blood vessels in tumors.
19. Accelerates wound healing and helps in repairing damaged skin.
20. Can help in the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory-related disorders.

Turmeric may be administered in powder form or as a pill. It is available as a pill in most drugstores, mainly in 250-500mg capsules.

The moment you turmeric on a regular basis are going to use, it’s fun to find new ways to use in recipes. My favorite way to use it is to add a small pinch in the egg salad. It adds a delicious flavor and gives the egg salad a rich yellow color.

Warnings: Turmeric can be used better by people with gallstones or cholestasis. Despite turmeric is often used by pregnant women, it is important to use to consult a doctor, since turmeric may have a stimulating effect on the uterus.

Reasons to Consider Not Having Hookups in the City – Or the Country

As fun as it has been to watch Carrie Bradshaw and her friends living the wild and crazy life of gorgeous singles in the City, I have to wonder what it would be like to watch them having a visit with their gynecologist, psychologist and anyone else who might have their “best” interest at heart.

Somehow, the reality of sex (mentally, physically and spiritually) doesn’t quite make it to the big screen. I don’t suppose it would be as fun to watch Samantha romp in the hay with some hot stud, only to find out a week later that she got herpes from him, her heart broken or became pregnant, do you?

Before you have sex in the city… or the country, you might want to consider these facts:

#1. Four out of five people have an STD

There are over 25 different types of sexually transmitted diseases and four out of five people have one of them! By the age of twenty five, fifty percent of men and women already have a sexually transmitted disease and many of them do not even know it!

Herpes is the most common STD in America. A reported 45 million American adults and adolescents have genital herpes — that’s 1 out of every 4 to 5 people. If you have herpes or know someone who does, you know how awful the outbreaks can be, not to mention the embarrassment of having to share this fact with every future love interest you meet.

The HPV virus is also one of the most common STD’s these days and it infects at least 50% of all people who have sex at some time in their lives. Often, people don’t have any symptoms and the one carrying it would have no idea they are passing it forward, so to speak. Yet, symptoms or not, this dangerous STD can lead to cervical cancer or cancer of the anus or penis if not monitored.

Other STD’s include Hepatitis B, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Gonorrhea and AIDS.
Getting an STD is very likely and it isn’t sexy. It’s serious and it’s dangerous.

Obviously using a condom each and every time that you have sex is a must! Even at that, you can’t prevent every STD… so it is also important to have an open and honest talk with your partner before you engage in any type of sexual intimacy.

#2. Women are more likely to get emotionally involved after sex than men

It’s true, there are times in most women’s lives where they can have casual sex and not necessarily care if the guy calls them the next day or not… and a random one night stand or a friend with “benefits” is probably reality for many single women these days.

But, let’s face it… in general – most women are engaging in sex to fulfill that deep intimacy and closeness that makes us feel that we are loved, cared about and accepted.

This desire to have a partner in our lives that wants and loves us is natural! It almost seems as though admitting that these days is somehow showing that we, as women, are weak.

On the contrary, this desire to want an emotional attachment is part of what makes the female gender wonderful! Biologically speaking, the fact is that the hippocampus – the site of the brain that stores emotions is larger in women than it is in men. This is also the part of the brain that stores memory.

It makes sense then that if your emotions are higher during great sex and your memory of the great sex lingers on… it’s nearly biologically impossible to not “feel” more than your male counterpart.

Being able to love, show emotions and linger on those feelings is part of being a woman. Instead of discounting it, turning yourself off or wishing you could act more like a man in bed, perhaps you should accept that you are a woman and consider more closely whether someone you are considering sleeping with is worthy of your emotional investment.

#3. You could get pregnant

I think it’s fair to say that the primary intention of sex is procreation. Having sex to create life is natural to every living creature on the planet (except of course for those who lay eggs and operate in less complicated manners of sexuality). The emotional and physical pleasure we receive from sex is simply an additional benefit that makes us want to procreate.

If you truly do not want to procreate, then you need to really make sure you are using a safe form of birth control or you are abstaining from sex all together.

While no form of birth control, except abstinence, is 100% effective, you might want to really consider the consequences of having sex with someone that you would not want to parent your child.

In other words, if this person was the last person on the earth… would you want to have a child with him/her? If your answer is, “no way”… I would say the sex isn’t worth the risk!

#4. Too Many Partners Could Lead To Low Self Esteem

Having sex with someone demonstrates acceptance of them, completely and without judgment – even if only for that brief period of time.

When you have sex with another person, you are showing them that they are desirable. They are showing you the same thing. The cellulite on your thighs (that are way too big to being with), are no longer an issue (at least for the moment). The fact that your breasts are smaller than your little sister …who is ten, doesn’t seem to be a factor either. During the act of sex, you feel beautiful, accepted and wanted.

When you have sex with someone that you consider “hot,” it makes logical sense to think that you are “hot: too. Why not? Certainly, like begets like, right?

For the moment, and perhaps a lingering few days later… all of this positive self esteem feels great. But what happens when he doesn’t call you? What happens when you realize that you have slept with twenty five men and still don’t have a relationship? What happens when the thrill of the moment is gone and you find yourself alone still with your cellulite and small breasts?

If you are using sex as a way to increase your self esteem, you need to re-think… your think.

A better way would be to learn to love yourself for the person that you are. Are you thoughtful, loving and kind? Do you work hard and treat others fairly? Are you honest and responsible to your obligations? Do you believe that these qualities will bring love into your life? I do!

Loving too many others (literally with sex) can lead to poor self esteem. Loving yourself,(flaws and all) leads to positive self esteem which radiates to everyone that you meet. There is nothing sexier!

#5. Having Sex Too Soon Can Ruin A Relationship

While having great sex at the beginning of a relationship can be a wonderful thing… it can also be the very thing that leads to an all too abrupt ending.

You’ve heard it before, “Sex changes everything.” Primarily, it can change the expectations you have for the relationship. Perhaps now that you are engaging in sex with someone, you expect that they call every day.

Perhaps you expect that they do not date anyone else. Perhaps you expect that they ask you out for the weekends. Perhaps you have taken this “sex” thing a little too far and assumed that it means you are in a relationship. Guess what? It doesn’t!

On the contrary, these expectations and hurt feelings can often prohibit men and women from developing a relationship with someone that might have been “the one”… had they just been more patient.

The truth is that a relationship does not begin until you have bonded with the other person. This, my friends, takes time. Usually, it takes more time for men to bond than for women – but this is not always the case.

Once you bond with someone over time – you get to know them, care about how they feel and have an opportunity to be vulnerable with them. You are able to show your flaws and know that it is safe to do that because you are being accepted for who you are.

Once you get to this level, it is safe to have sex because you have had time to develop the relationship and considered expectations. The great sex with someone who loves you will be well worth the wait!

When the timing is right, expectations are set, bonding has occurred, and falling in love is taking place… sex in the city or the country can be a great thing!

Consuming Coffee Can Have These Side Effects On Your Health And Wellbeing

Each day, many of us everywhere wake up with a cup of coffee. Although it is known that caffeine has attributes that stimulate and can help a few people feel much more alert, there are many other health issues which have come about by consuming an excessive amount of coffee. Research has confirmed a few of the results of consuming coffee in moderation can be beneficial. Yet, some of the other unwanted side effects of coffee drinking in huge amounts might be more detrimental for your health than beneficial. This article will examine some of the other health effects that drinking coffee may have.

Men and women in just about every culture know the stimulant effects of coffee Coffee is often used to promote alertness or help people remain alert and awake. It is commonly used following a night with very little sleep. In some people, coffee has a detrimental side effect that ends in overstimulating the nervous system. This usually results in symptoms of irritability or nervousness. An overstimulated nervous system can certainly reduce that person’s capacity to withstand stress, making the stress and anxiety symptoms a whole lot worse. More health conditions may be identified, with regular overstimulation, through the exhaustion of the adrenal glands. Males that drink coffee are not as likely to develop gout. Gout is a continual affliction that is commonly diagnosed by symptoms like unpleasant swelling and irritation of the joints – especially in the feet or ankles. The big toe is usually the worst afflicted area although it is possible for the ankles, knees, wrists, or fingertips to be afflicted too. Sore and sensitive joints can be the end result and they might be inflammed and/or red. Uric acid, the substance thought to trigger gout in the body can also be the reason for kidney stones. Research shows that drinking coffee decreases the amount of uric acid in the body.

It has been found that both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee have a bit of laxative effect that may prevent constipation. As a result of laxative effect, it’s believed that drinking coffee might help lower the chance of getting colon cancer. But individuals who drink extreme amounts of coffee, also have bowels which are loose. In the event this is the truth, then drinking coffee in small amounts will change this.

To summarize, drinking coffee in moderation can be advantageous for your health. On the other hand, heavy coffee drinkers must be cautioned that there are also negative health consequences that may come from consuming an excessive amount of caffeine. Moderation is the key to reaching a healthy normal balance..

How To Know The Difference Between Internal And External Hemmoroids?

Engorged veins, or hemmoroids, happen in the anal canal. While it is unbearable, it is not deadly. 10 million Americans have had, or do have, hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids have two variations, external and internal.

When swelling of the veins inside the canal cause internal hemorrhoids. If the swelling happens near the anal opening, external hemorrhoids form. It is possible to suffer from both at the same time. Treatments and symptoms will vary depending on which one you have.

The cause of pressure on the veins in the rectal or pelvic area can lead to hemorrhoids.

Movement of the bowels is maintained by tissue, inside the rectum, that fills up with blood. If bowel movements take effort, the force might make the veins to engorge and broaden causing hemorrhoids.

Force from constipation or diarrhea.

Those who are pregnant will more than likely suffer from hemorrhoids at some point. The weight of the fetus in the pelvic region increases the stress on the veins. Also the stress on the veins during labor is known to create hemorrhoids or can make them worse.

Those who are overweight are more likely to suffer from hemorrhoids.

Symptoms of both types include bleeding during bowel movements, itching and pain when cleaning the area.

For internal hemorrhoids, blood may be present on your bowel movements or on toilet paper.

Internal hemorrhoids are generally little, distended veins in the wall of the channel. The veins may also protrude from the rectal region and are quite large. When compressed by the rectal muscles they are excruciating if they protrude. It is also excruciating if they are cut off from the blood supply.

With external hemorrhoids, a tough mass normally develops because of the blood gathering in that area. This is agonizing.

Letting your doctor perform a physical can normally tell you if you have hemorrhoids or not.

Assessments might not be required for those under 50 if the doctor believes the bleeding is due to hemorrhoids. Using a finger that is covered with a glove, the doctor will perform a rectal exam or use a lighted scope to view the inside.

There is a chance that the sigmoidscope or a colonoscopy may be performed. This is due in part to anal, colon and rectal cancer all having signs of bleeding. These procedures will only be done if hemorrhoids are not found to be the cause.

Taking over the counter medication, drinking plenty of water and having enough fiber in your diet can help prevent or cure hemorrhoids. These home remedies can be used for most external hemorrhoid treatment.

Use the same cures listed above to aid in treating internal hemorrhoids.

If the internal hemorrhoids are bad enough, other forms of treatment might be necessary. Doctors can use scar tissue and rubber bands to tie of the hemorrhoids. Since the blood supply decreases, they will become smaller or disappear.

Surgery might be required if home cures do not work.

To prevent hemorrhoids or keep them from worsening eat foods high in fiber like fruits, whole grains and vegetables. Drink plenty of water and exercise regularly to for prevention efforts also.

Alternative Cancer Treatment – Breast Cancer No Longer A Killer

Breast cancer continues to be a serious condition that affects 1 in 12 women at some point in their life. Fortunately, it is no longer always life threatening and doesn’t typically permanently scar individuals.

Breast cancer, like all other cancers, is extremely mysterious. Breast cancer is an active research area and many questions remain unanswered. The underlying causes of breast cancer remain unknown in most cases, but the way by which it spreads and acts is better known today.

The risks of breast cancer – who gets it, the pros and cons of different treatments, survival rates and more – are also much better quantified.

While many claims are overblown, the effects of diet are becoming clearer. Many questions remain, but low estrogen producing diets and lifestyles are strongly indicated as beneficial. Low fat diets contribute to that as does regular exercise.

Early detection and diagnosis has reached a point in technological advancement where it only takes a clump of 50 cancer cells to be identified as a cancerous tumor. Chemical tests for early detection are becoming cheaper and much more sophisticated. Treatments now range from the more traditional such as lumpectomy or mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation to even more advanced hormone treatments.

Even with all the innovation, though, self-examination remains one of the best practices. It is in the individual’s control and makes possible ferreting out anything requiring further investigation by more advanced methods. Mammograms remain a low cost, low risk and low discomfort method of detecting tumors.

Recovery is typically faster with fewer recurrences being seen thanks to more precise diagnosis and treatment. Digital mammography is computer assisted and makes the review of test results much more accurate than in the past.

Though it is tragic, when a woman or man contracts breast cancer that requires surgery improved reconstruction techniques make it a lot less scary. The FDA has recently removed silicon implants from the forbidden list. Implants and plastic surgery are becoming less dangerous. Patients now are home from the hospital the same day they have surgery.

It is normal in today’s world for almost 100% of the individuals who receive early diagnosis and treatment (treatment during stage 0 or stage I) to live longer than five years. Most of these individuals never have any recurrence at all and aren’t bothered by their breast cancer for the rest of their life.

This disease was once life threatening and typically terminal. Though it hasn’t been reduced to nothing more than an annoyance yet it is still much less life threatening. Typically following treatment individuals can enjoy a cancer free life.
