Green Gram Health Benefits Overviews

By: http://www.OWorking.com 

Overview
Green gram, also known as mung bean, has been cultivated exclusively for the seeds that are contained in the plant's pod. Used since ancient times in Indian and Chinese cuisine, mung beans have migrated throughout the Far East and Southeast Asia. Nutritious and mild in flavor, green gram takes on the flavor of the spices and other ingredients added to it. When mung beans are dried and halved, they go by various names, including green gram dal.

The Mung Bean
Green gram is a small, oval-shaped bean that you can cook before or after soaking. Once cooked, the bean is sweet and soft in texture, and it is easily digested, so it doesn't produce flatulence like many other legumes. The mung bean has an olive green husk and a dark-mustard-colored interior. The dried bean is often split to expedite cooking and sold as green dal. If it has been hulled before splitting, only the yellow endosperm remains, and the bean goes by various names including moong dal and mung dal. Green gram dal, which still has the husks, maintains its shape better when cooking, while moong dal becomes soft and mushy like porridge. Because of their soft consistency, dals are used for stews, soups, salads and desserts.

Low-Fat Protein
Like other beans, the mung bean is a rich source of low-fat protein. One cup of mature, boiled beans contains 14 g of protein, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Unlike many other plant-based sources of protein, mung beans have a wide amino-acid profile, providing at least some of every type of amino acid. Green gram dal contains virtually no trans or saturated fats. It does contain a small amount of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat.
High Fiber
One cup of cooked green gram dal has a whopping 15 g of fiber. It contains both insoluble and water-soluble fiber, which together yield varied benefits. Fiber scrubs your intestinal tract as it makes its way through your digestive system. It fills you up, sating your appetite. Water-soluble fiber reduces LDL cholesterol -- the "lousy" cholesterol -- and reduces risk for cardiovascular disease.
Low-Glycemic
Because of the high amount of fiber, green gram dal is considered low-glycemic. It digests slowly and gradually releases glucose into your bloodstream, stabilizing your blood sugar. Consumption of low-glycemic foods lower your risk for developing diabetes, and since green gram dal prolongs the release of sugar into your bloodstream, it can help curb your post-meal cravings. A study published in 2008 in the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry" indicates that mung beans might lower blood glucose, triglycerides and cholesterol and might improve glucose tolerance



Green Gram - The Popular Healthy Sprout


During my younger days, my mother used to feed me dishes which had green gram as a major ingredient. She used to say that eating these food kept one healthy and resistant to common ailments. I would have appreciated what she told, much better, if I was aware of the health giving qualities of this wonderful pulse which formed an essential ingredient in all her dishes.

Green gram arose in North-eastern India and there is a long history of its use throughout Asia. Its popularity stems not just from its medicinal and nutritional properties, but also from its adaptability to drought conditions and inferior soils. The nitrogen fixing bacteria in the plant's root help replenish the nitrogen content of the soil, which makes it a valuable inter-crop in rice and sugar cane cultivation.


Health benefits 


Unlike other pulses, green gram is free of flatulence-causing agents. This makes it an acceptable food for convalescents and pleasant weaning food for babies. The protein is especially rich in the amino acid, lysine, but it is somewhat deficient in sulphur-containing amino acids. The seeds are rich in calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, folate and other B Vitamins. They also contain appreciable amounts of Vitamin C.

Raw seeds are rich in trypsin-inhibitors that block the effects of protein digesting enzymes in the gut. Sprouted green gram has lower amounts of these inhibitors, but the best method to eliminate trypsin inhibitors is boiling. Cooking does not affect the protein profile of this seed.

Food Uses 

Green gram's use in creating dishes is widely prevalent all over India. It is eaither used whole or split into dal. Whole green gram is the most popular sprout worldwide. Green gram in its split form is used to make khichdi, dal, barfi, payasam (a sweet dish) and other sweets. Deep fried and salted moong dal (green gram) is a popular Indian snack. Processed green gram is a common soup base, and gram flour is a common ingredient in many fried snacks.

Medicinal Uses 


Chinese medicine uses green gram as a remedy for oedema, fever, headache and generalised anxiety, and as a diuretic. It is also a folk remedy for arsenic poisoning and other mineral toxins

Aloe Vera Health Benefits Overview

BY: http:www.OWorking.com 

The scientific name for the type of aloe used medicinally is Aloe barbadensis. It is a member of the lily and onion family of plants.
Aloe has been used as a skin soother historically. It is helpful with soothing cuts, burns, sunburns, bug bites, and scrapes.

Carrisyn which is an extract made from aloe is known to increase the production of blood cells which can fight infection and as a result help to boost the immune system.
Aloe is good for occasional gastric upset. Aloe may also be used as a natural laxative. The typical dose is 1 to 3 ounces of gel or 50 to 200 mg. The component of aloe that provides the laxative effect is anthraquinone glycosides.
Getting the Most Out of Aloe
Aloe is best used topically in the raw natural form. After the “gel” has been used one can also cut the leaf lengthwise to use as an exfoliating body scrub.
Aloe may also be drunk as a juice; however, it is best and most nutritious made fresh.
Aloe Concerns and Cautions
If too much aloe is ingested it may cause diarrhea and gastric upset.
Aloe can also cause an allergic reaction in some people so use must be carefully monitored for signs and symptoms. The risk of an allergic reaction tends to be higher in those who have a known allergy to onions and/or garlic.
Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should abstain from using aloe.

Health Benefits of Aloe Vera
Energy and Wellness are affected by several factors including:
Digestion
Water Intake
Poor Nutrition
Anemia
Constipation
Immune System Function
Blood Sugar
Exercise
Digestion - We are not only what we eat but what we absorb! Providing the body with proper nutrients is important but not enough. We must be able to utilize those nutrients for the body to function at its optimum level. A lack of energy is one of the first signs that the body is lacking what it needs to perform. Digestion can be improved by chewing food well approximately 10-15 chews per bite. Chewing food is very important because the body has to work harder to digest the food when it is in larger particles. Chewing also starts the digestive juices flowing. Many individuals lack the proper levels of hydrochloric acid and other digestive juices in their bodies and can encourage proper amounts by drinking concentrated whole leaf aloe vera juice before meals. The aloe vera must be in a concentrated form and be high quality non diluted to insure that it is an herbal bitter. Aloe Vera is also a carrier and supports 3-10x better absorption of nutrients when taken before meals and supplements. Signs of improper digestion besides a lack of energy are gas, bloating, constipation and burping. For more information on how to have a healthy digestive system visit the digestive and constipation pages of this website.
Recommended Aloe Life products: Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate or Aloe Gold tablets.

Water: Children and Adults must drink at least 6-8 8oz glasses of water per day. Water is essential; our bodies consist of 70% water. It is used to transport nutrients into the cells and toxins out and allows digestive juices to flow as well as all the excretions of the glands including enzymes, hormones and anti-bodies. For each serving of caffeine ingested per day drink 1 more glass of water. It is best to drink water in between meals or minimal amounts with meals because it will dilute the digestive juices disrupting the digestive process.

Poor Nutrition
: A balanced diet with adequate protein, vegetables and whole grains as tolerated is necessary for energy. Half of an individuals weight in protein is the proper daily amount. Many individuals consume excessive amounts of sugar or refined carbohydrates that give a quick boost of energy but will quickly disappear and bring on fatigue.
Recommended Aloe Life Products: Healthy and Slim Daily Greens, Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate or Aloe Gold Tablets and Aloe Boost.

Anemia: A condition of low red blood cells, which are made in the bone marrow inside of the body’s larger bones. Fatigue and headaches are the most common symptoms. Drinking Aloe Vera Juice before meals seems to stimulate the bone marrow production of red blood cells and all lymphocytes including white blood cells. Other recommended nutrients include protein, vitamins E, C & A, zinc, minerals, folic acid, B- Complex, B-12 sub lingual, iron as needed (too much iron can be toxic) and liquid liver by Enzymatic Therapy.
Recommended Aloe Life Products: Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate or Aloe Gold Tablets.

Constipation: Toxins will build up in the colon if an individual does not have daily bowel movements. These toxins will add to feelings of sluggishness and fatigue. Individuals who are experiencing optimum digestive health will have a bowel movement after every meal. Aloe Vera naturally encourages the bowels to move when it contains the yellow sap. It should be taken daily to aid constipation and the digestive processes. Also be sure to include scrubbing vegetables such as carrots, celery, apples, cabbage and fresh beets. Supplements should include calcium, magnesium and essential fats (ex. Udo’s Choice by Flora).
Recommended Aloe Life Products: Fiber mate, Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate or Aloe Gold tablets, Healthy and Slim Daily Greens.

Immune System Function: A symptom of poor immune function is a lack of energy. Conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and autoimmune conditions may have a viral component, which contributes to the illness by keeping the body in a vulnerable state and added fatigue. Increasing immune function will help to fight the viral component and therefore help the condition. Quality Aloe Vera contains polysaccharides, which stimulate part of the immune system (dose dependent) called macrophage. When properly stimulated the macrophages will start phagocytosis by destroying invaders in the blood stream. Quality aloe vera juice should be taken daily to promote immune function. Supportive nutrients are ester C 1-3,000 mg, Bioflavonoids, Vitamin A fish oil 50,000 i.u., Vitamin E 400 i.u., N-A-C 500 mg 1- 4 tablets or glutathione, Single cell Algae, minerals, Essential Fatty Acids, Super Oxide Dismutase (S.O.D.),Chromium Picolinate and Wheat grass.
Recommended Aloe Life Products: Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate or Aloe Gold tablets, Aloe Boost, Fiber mate, Healthy and Slim Daily Greens and Detox Plus Formula.

Blood Sugar: The pancreas produces insulin that signals the body to utilize blood sugars for fuel in energy production. If the body cannot utilize its sugars than it will not be able to produce energy. Unutilized sugar is very dangerous to have in the body and can induce fatigue, confusion, irritability and even comas. Aloe Vera supports the pancreas to help with insulin production to utilize blood sugar! It is not uncommon for individuals with Diabetes to experience a dramatic decrease in blood sugar levels within minutes of taking Aloe Vera. Support nutrients include Vitamin E, Chromium Picolinate, Vanadium, Minerals, Protein 3-4 servings daily, free form amino acids and Water. Recommended Aloe Life Products: Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate, Aloe Boost, Healthy and Slim Daily Greens.

Exercise: Daily exercise is wonderful for the body and will help maintain emotional and physical health. Just 30 min of walking or other cardio vascular exercise such as marching in place or swimming a day will help to lower stress levels, promote healthy bowel regularity and circulation of the blood providing oxygen to all the cells for increasing energy and wellness!
Growing Aloe
Aloe falls into the category of plants known as succulents which denote thick and fleshy leaves and stems that are used to store water during arid conditions. Because of this ability to thrive in areas of low humidity succulents such as aloe thrive as house plants. It is also possible to grow aloe as a potted plant that is allowed to summer outside and winter inside if the climate is requires.
Aloe is like most succulents in that it likes sandy well draining soil. Modest amounts of water and fertilizer are needed to grow aloe; however, they do require high amounts of sunlight. When watering it is important to thoroughly wet the soil then allow to completely dry out before subsequent watering in order to not distort the growth. Aloe may be propagated through the use of stem cuttings.

Natural Healthy Safe Way for Fat Loss

By: http://www.OWorking.com
 The basic principles of nutrition stay the same regardless of your goals, age, sex, or physical condition. The main differences will lie in meal sizes and proportions of different macronutrients in meals. You should always:
  • Have 5 or more small to medium-sized meals throughout the day.
  • Drink lots of plain water throughout the day. 8 cups of water is the minimum.
  • Get at least 25% of your daily calories from protein, with some in every meal.
  • Get 20-40% of your daily calories from carbohydrates.
  • Get 20-40% of your daily calories from fats.
  • Eat minimally processed and cooked foods whenever appropriate. Especially, eat a lot of raw vegetables.
  • Avoid meals heavy in carbohydrates and/or fats.
  • Avoid sweets and sugary foods, processed foods, fried foods, junk foods, and alcohol.A diet that doesn’t leave you feeling constantly hungry, allows you to eat a variety of natural foods and doesn’t require a great deal of exercise? This is what the infamous Fat Loss 4 Idiots diet promises its users but can you really expect results from this method? This Fat Loss 4 Idiots review will expose what you can really expect from this well known and much acclaimed weight loss program.

    The creators of Fat Loss 4 Idiots claim that the method will allow you to lose weight faster and melt away up to 9 pounds of body fat every 11 days! This is  quite a big claim and from searching a sample of the many thousands of user testimonials that exist for this approach it is safe to say that this kind of result would be at the extremes of what you can expect however most users affirm  that they have indeed lost weight – anywhere from around 3-5 pounds per 11 day cycle on average and that the diet process was easier to stick with long term than most other diets they had tried in the past.

    The first task of this Fat Loss 4 Idiots review is to explain how this program works. It works on the principle of calorie shifting. This involves varying the amount of calories consumed and the food types where the calories come from on a daily basis. The program involves 11 days of following a specially designed calorie shifting regime then 3 days break where the user can eat anything of their own choice! Of course, you would need to exercise common sense not to over indulge and put the weight back on during the 3 day break which is one manageable disadvantage to the diet, but this 3 day break is also vital to the diet’s success.

    The changes in amounts of calories throughout the 14 days (especially the 3 days “off” dieting) prevents the body from adjusting to lower levels of calories and ceasing the fat burning process. By essentially keeping the body guessing and unable to adjust to a pattern, the body’s metabolism is kept running at its most efficient. This varied pattern of eating turns the body into an efficient fat  melting machine, working at its best.

    If you can really expect to get results from Fat Loss 4 Idiots, or any diet for that matter, you need to be able to continue the diet long term without suffering. Many would be dieters give up as they constantly feel hungry, bloated, experiencing headaches, excessive tiredness – the list of unpleasant side effects is enough to make anyone want to give up. Usually diets that make you experience these types of symptoms are based on processed foods, powders or shakes or unnatural eating patters (such as low levels of carbohydrates). Fat Loss 4 Idiots was specifically designed to avoid these problems and be a program that can be continued long term without suffering so you can persevere with it long enough to achieve your goals. In fact, many dieters have found this program to be the only one that they have had long term success with as it is based on natural foods and natural eating patterns despite the calorie variations.

    This means that you will need to prepare your own meals, but the Diet Generator included with the program makes everyday meal selections a breeze and the meals are specifically based on ingredients that are commonly available in your local supermarket and quick and easy to prepare. The whole family would even enjoy them if you choose not to prepare a separate meal for yourself.
    The diet is based on eating habits so exercise is not essential for its success. This is another reason many people have found it a realistic program for long term weight loss success, especially if you find it difficult to make time for exercise or simply loathe it (even I am guilty of this!).

    So what is the verdict of this Fat Loss 4 Idiots review? While you may not lose  9 pounds every 11 days, many users have reported good losses and long term  success with this diet and have preferred its approach for its simplicity and comfort. Because of this approach many people have finally achieved their weight loss goals when previously they have given up so Fat Loss 4 Idiots is definitely worth your time, especially if you have struggled with shedding those stubborn pounds in the past;

Natural Treatments for Hemorrhoids

  There are Three solutions I know of how to get rid of hemorrhoids:
1) the standard western medicine approach: a large cone shaped device is placed carefully up your rear end, after which you hear a quick zip sound, like the sound of one of those powerdrills for tightening bolts on car tires, and a chunk of your inner intestines is miraculously sliced out.
Make sure you have a full bag of amphetamines on your way home from the doctor.
2) the old wives tale approach (which worked for me).
Go to a pharmacy, or maybe a forest, and get a bunch of oak bark. Cut them into small shavings. Bring to boil about one liter of water per 50 g of shavings. Let your concoction boil for about 3 minutes, then seep for about 30. When your concoction is not so hot anymore, pour it into some plastic or other basin and let cool down until you can bear it (supposed to be applied lukewarm) and START SOAKING THAT CAULIFLOWER BABY!
The reason this works is because it causes the flesh in the burning inferno compression chamber to compress and become smaller, allowing the blood to flow through it easier and hence help the healing process. I usually soak it for about 25 minutes. I think the best time to do this is sometime shortly before noon, by which time you should have fully released your previous day’s meal. Otherwise, the compressed nature of your inner tubes might compress against any remaining processed food, aggravating your hemorrhoids and making matters potentially worse.  3. I think it should be the best one i ever know:  Offered by http://www.hemorrhoidmiracle.com, it can have hemorrhoids well controlled in very short time and in safe & effective way, which can be found here

Attempting to cure hemorrhoids without surgery is a difficult thing. Natural remedies play an important role in relieving hemorrhoids. When compared to medicinal remedies, natural remedies are cheap, available and their effect lasts for a longer duration. There are various natural remedies to get relieved of hemorrhoids, but as every other individual differs in health structure from others, the best-suited remedy is to be opted for better results. One should keep in mind that there is no guaranteed success - some cases improve, some are cured, others don't.
    The treatments for a home cure, as opposed to the doctor's surgery, revolve around strengthening the vein walls - not just in the hemorrhoids, but also throughout the entire body. Also, there are a series of non-surgical medical techniques that can be applied, depending on the types of hemorrhoids the patient has.

    In case of the internal type of hemorrhoid, legation is preferred by most of the patients. In this type of treatment, the affected part of the veins is tied with rubber knots, which stops blood supply for that area. Thus the affected part dries and gets separated from the body. This legation is a simple method and carried out by by doctors who specialize in this type of medicine.
    The herbal hemorrhoids treatment may sometimes be bought through a druggist / chemist, but you'll more than likely have to go to a health food shop or you could always buy online.
    Most of the herbal medicines and creams are prepared from various trees such as the horse chestnut tree, butcher broom tree and the pagoda trees that are mostly found in Japan. These herbal supplements provide temporary relief to the patients but they are to be followed regularly without fail. Along with these, Cranesbills and Aloe Vera are the natural astringents that provide smooth effect to the motion.
    Here are some natural remedies that will help you getting quick relief from the hemorrhoids. These natural methods do not have side effects and are safe with respect to medicines. Still, the best option remains precaution to carry out early treatment, so that hemorrhoids are prevented from further development.
    To achieve fast relief from hemorrhoids, cranberry poultice gives the best results. Here is a method to prepare it: take four teaspoons cranberries and blend it in a mixer. After blending wrap this powder along with cheese and push it in the anus for one hour. Again take fresh cheesecloth with mixture and repeat the process. This will enable a patient to get quick relief from thehemorrhoid symptoms.
    Another natural way to treat hemorrhoids is using onion and garlic. This treatment helps in destroying the bacteria and also helps in strengthening the damaged veins while the inflammation is minimized. The procedure is very simple, just remove the outer cover of the garlic or of the onion and insert it into the rectum. Next day morning the used garlic will be out along with the fecal matter. The patients are advised not to use this method if they are suffering from bleeding hemorrhoids.
    The other treatment available is shallow bath method. In this method the suffering patient has to dip his affected portion into water that contains iodine crystals. This provides a soothing effect to anus area and also repairs the ruptured tissues, but one has to regularly soak in shallow bath for fifteen to twenty minutes. Pain and swelling can also be reduced with hazels that contain astringent and the analgesics but more precautions have to be taken while using these creams.
    The next method that is very common is a mixture of germanium oil with almond oil. In this natural method, proper ratio of these two oils is mixed. After mixing thoroughly, apply it with the help of fingertips to affected areas around the anus. This helps in killing the germs and keeps the area at a low temperature. This mixture also enables the patient to pass fecal smoothly without applying more pressure.
    Ice Pack is another natural method that helps in relieving the symptoms of hemorrhoids. This pack can be prepared at home by taking small ice pieces in a bag and place the bag on to the effected area and replace the ice cubes every after half an hour, so that the bag remains cold.

Natural Treatments for Chronic tinnitus

By: http://www.OWorking.com

Chronic tinnitus is a condition that is symptomized by an irritating buzzing racket in the ears. While there are many prescribed medicines available for treating the condition, not all of them seem to be effective, not at least in the long run. Fortunately, there are several chronic tinnitus natural cures which can help you get rid of the problem.
So far, One of the best Natural Treatments for Chronic tinnitus is Tinnitus Miracle (tm): tinnitus, which can be found here

Chronic Tinnitus describes the sounds that sufferer’s experience when diagnosed with the condition.
Tinnitus sufferer’s are said to experience a subjective condition. This means that the noise is audible only to the patient. Tinnitus has been formally linked to a wide range of so-called causal variables. This includes variables such as head trauma, tumors of the ear canal, and exposure to loud noise. Some tinnitus symptoms tend to resolve themselves, however, the chronic tinnitus variety will often result in persistent bouts of buzzing, hissing noise pain.
Many times, regular medical treatments will see little success, this is because the condition tends to be very resistant to traditional medicine. Doctors will therefore misinterpret the condition as ‘incurable’ because they place less belief in holistic treatments due to their emphasis on ‘science’. I will now discuss two highly respected treatments undertaken by chronic tinnitus sufferers.
Yoga
Research often states that stress plays a major impact in the severity of the condition. The head and neck muscles may become tightened when the subject is under stress, and this can exacerbate the situation. Yoga and meditation are great tools to help you de-stress yourself. This will result in wide recognition amongst sufferers’ that their condition is much relieved.
The cat pose is a hugely popular pose. The subject sits on their hands and knees and arches their back upwards. This is then held for approximately ten seconds, and then this is followed by reversing the arched back (i.e. arching it downwards). Muscle tension is greatly reduced and the patient then feels the benefit of reducing their tinnitus effects. Sufferer’s have been recorded, claiming immediate relief from their symptoms, when using this technique. It is not necessary to join a yoga class for this purpose, but having a trained instructor will speed up the learning curve.
Hearing Aids
Hearing aids is the second causal link claimed to invoke severe bouts of chronic tinnitus. Chronic tinnitus is widely reported to cause greatly reduced hearing. Hearing loss results from a reduced sensitivity to external noise. This may result in an overcompensating of sound of internal noise. Hearing tests are considered major tools in the treatment of chronic tinnitus.
In many cases, the doctor’s determine that the hearing aid has been the root cause of the chronic tinnitus condition. Hearing aids have also been considered important tools in the fight against tinnitus. This is because the hearing aid increases the level of external noise, and the external noise can then regulate that of the internal noise. The internal noise can then be ‘drowned out’, which provides enormous relief to the sufferer. This is why hearing aids are considered to be an extremely popular treatment for tinnitus.
These two treatments are actually only used in small numbers of chronic tinnitus cases, as there are many other factors at work in tinnitus sufferer’s conditions.
Other so-called natural remedies have gained an enormous following, in large part due to the failure of conventional medicine to tackle this problem.
The majority of these natural tinnitus remedies may be tried and tested from within the confines of one’s home.

Natural Treatment for Tourette Syndrome

By: http://www.OWorking.com

Neurological disorders like Tourette’s Syndrome are becoming more commonplace in our society today because of poor diet and environmental toxins, which means it originates in the brain and/or the nervous system. It is believed it may be caused by a malfunctioning in the way the brain uses its neurotransmitters, particularly dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that transmit information from one nerve cell to another and play a crucial role in learning, behavior, mood, memory, sleep, pain perception and sexual desire. It is the brain’s communication system. The unusual and uncontrollable sounds and movements that occur with Tourette’s are a clear indication that something in the brain is not functioning properly.
So Far One of the best sellers as to  Natural Treatment for Tourette Syndrome is Ex-sufferer Of Tourettes Syndrome
which can be found  here
Imbalances and malfunctioning of neurotransmitters is extremely common in our society, although it is rarely heard about. When you hear someone saying that a health condition is caused by a “chemical imbalance,” what they are referring to are neurotransmitters. Not only are they connected to Tourettes, but they are also often at the root of depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, addiction, autism, chronic pain, fatigue, hyperactivity, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s eating disorders, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel, impulse control ,schizophrenia, aggression and many other conditions.

Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder that involves involuntary muscle twitching, violent jerking of the body, odd noises and obscene languages. Usually, people suffering from Tourette syndrome are treated with the help of pharmaceutical medicines, but it has also been seen that there are a number of herbal remedies that can be put into use to get relief from this disorder and also the symptoms associated with it.
There are certain steps that can be followed to help the people who are not only suffering from Tourette’s syndrome but also for anyone who is afflicted by some kind of neurological disorder or malfunctioning of the neurotransmitters. Avoiding the use of caffeine, sugar, refined foods and white flour can help the person minimize the symptoms. Also, identifying sensitivity to food and food allergies can also prove to be helpful. People suffering from this syndrome can switch over to organic food to help them get all the natural and vital nutrients and vitamins without any chemicals. Another important thing should be avoided is the use of any herbicide or pesticide in the house. It is of equal importance to replace any chemical based personal care product with environmental friendly products.
Identifying nutritional deficiencies and providing supplements along with a balanced diet can be a savior. It has been seen that supplements like niacin, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium, and selenium have been quite helpful to people suffering from this syndrome. If there is an incidence of hypoglycemia, then it should be identified and a diet that brings relief from this syndrome should be put into use. People suffering from Tourette’s syndrome are prone to developing candida overgrowth. It is important to keep a check and take steps that can reduce this condition.
The tremors and tics associated with the syndrome can be controlled by giving the affected person some tea that has been made from passionflower, chamomile, skullcap, wood betony and lady’s slipper. These herbal supplements provide vital minerals and vitamins that can help the muscle and the nerves relax. To make this tea, you can add one teaspoon of each of these herbs in a cup of boiling water and strain it after a boil. This can be given three times a day to see the best effects. Another herbal treatment that can be done is by taking a tincture of St. John’s Wort or valerian root that can help relieve the muscle tension and also relax the nerves. You can add 20 drops of either of the extracts in a cup of water and have it daily.
It is important to include avocadoes and wheat germ in the diet of the person suffering from Tourette’s syndrome. These foods are rich in supply of niacin and have the ability to stop tics appearing during the syndrome. This should be given in association with a regular balanced diet. Taking evening primrose can help alleviate the tremors. It can also help by normalizing the important functions of the nervous system. One can take up two capsules each of 500mg three times a day. Also, the person can drink herbal teas that help in calming the senses. Green tea and eucalyptus tea have been found to be quite effective in relieving stress and keeping the person away from tension, which can trigger an attack.

Review of Causes and Treatments of Low Back Pain

If you are looking for "back pain treatment options" you have come to the right place.
Quite a number of different back pain treatments are known to relieve lower back pain but there is no guarantee that back pain won't return at some point. In addition, most treatments for back pain are either expensive drugs with horrible side effects; or extended pricey visits to your chiropractor, acupuncturist, osteopath or physiotherapist.

Back Pain Relief4life introduce an effective all natural scientifically proven method for lower back pain relief & prevention; So far, it already receive a lot of good feedback, maybe you should try; you can get you copy here

The complaint of back pain is among the most common medical conditions. To begin on the positive side, patients must understand that most episodes of back pain resolve, and usually within a few weeks. Unfortunately, back pain can be among the most difficult and frustrating problems for patients and their doctors.
Understanding the cause of your back pain is the key to proper treatment. Because back pain is sometimes difficult to treat, a better understanding of the cause of your condition will assist in your recovery.
Causes of Back Pain
Lumbar Muscle Strain
Muscle strains are the most common cause of low back pain. Patients may or may not remember the initial event that triggered their muscle spasm, but the good news is that most episodes of back pain from muscle strains resolve completely within a few weeks.
Ruptured Disc
A ruptured intervertebral disc, also called a herniated disc, is another common cause of back pain. How to treat the back pain from a herniated disc depends on the particular individual and situation.
Discogenic Back Pain
Discogenic back pain is thought to be a common cause of low back pain. Discogenic back pain cis the result of damage to the intervertabral disc, but without disc herniation. Diagnosis of discogenic back pain may require the use of a discogram.
Spinal Stenosis
Spinal stenosis causes back pain in the aging population. As we age, the spinal canal can become constricted, due in part to arthritis and other conditions. If the spinal canal becomes too tight, back pain can be the result.
Lumbar Spine Arthritis
Arthritis most commonly affects joints such as the knees and fingers. However, arthritis can affect any joint in the body, including the small joints of the spine. Arthritis of the spine can cause back pain with movement.
Spondylolisthesis
Spondylolisthesis causes back pain because adjacent vertebra become unstable and begin to "slip." The most common cause of spondylolisthesis is due to degenerative changes causing loss of the normal stabilizing structures of the spinal column. If the spine becomes unstable enough, back pain can become a problem.
Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis can cause a number of orthopedic problems and generalized discomfort. Back pain from osteoporosis is most commonly related to compression fractures of the vertebra. Osteoporosis causes weak bones and can lead to these fractures.
When do I need to go to my doctor for back pain?
Most episodes of back pain last a few days, and have completely resolved within a few weeks. If you have new back pain, you should contact your doctor to see if you need further evaluation. There are also a few warning signs that may indicate a problem that needs immediate evaluation:
Your back pain persists beyond a few days
Your back pain awakens you at night
Your have difficulty controlling your bowels or bladder
You have a fever, chills, sweats, or other signs of infection
Any other unusual symptoms

Back Pain Treatments
The most frustrating aspect in treatment of back pain is that there is no "magic bullet." Most individuals recover completely by simply avoiding strain to their spine. Patients often find help from ice, heat, and medications. If the basic treatments for back pain do not relieve your symptoms, the next step is to seek medical evaluation. Depending on the symptoms and the length of the problem, your physician can properly organize a treatment schedule.
Depending on the condition that is causing your symptoms, a number of treatments may be recommended. Some options for treatment of back pain include:
Non-Surgical Treatment
Non-surgical options are usually the first step in treatment of back pain conditions. Rest, ice, heat, exercises, medications, and other treatments may all be useful in relieving your symptoms.

Alternative Treatments
Alternative treatments are popular and often as successful as traditional medical treatments for many types of back pain. These treatments are often safe and as effective as medicines used for treatment of back pain.

Spine Surgery
Spine surgery is usually reserved for treatment of back pain that does not resolve with simple steps. However, there are some conditions where surgery may be necessary. Your doctor can help you determine when surgery may be an appropriate treatment for your condition

Review of Natural Remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis

By: http://www.oworking.com/

  Despite significant advances in treatment over the past decades, rheumatoid arthritis continues to be an incurable disease.Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis has two components: (1) reducing inflammation and preventing joint damage and disability and (2) relieving symptoms, especially pain. Although achieving the first goal may accomplish the second, many people need separate treatment for symptoms at some point in the disease.
and there are well know side effects of allopathic medicines. So far, one of best Natural Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatments is offered by Ebook "Arthritis Free For Life", which can be found  here.

Natural Remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis

There is no known cure for rheumatoid arthritis. Alternative therapies are popular among people with rheumatoid arthritis, however, they should complement, not replace, conventional care. Here are some natural remedies that are used for rheumatoid arthritis.

1) Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of fat. Our bodies can't make omega-3s on their own, so we must obtain them through our diet.

There is reasonably strong evidence that omega-3 fatty acids may help people with rheumatoid arthritis. The results of over 13 double-blind, placebo-controlled studies involving a total of more than 500 people suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may improve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. One of the ways it appears to work is by decreasing the production of inflammatory chemicals.

Although omega-3 fatty acids reduce symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, they don’t appear to slow the progression of the disease.

Cold water fish such as salmon, sardines, and anchovies are the richest food source of omega-3 fatty acids. But instead of eating more fish which contain mercury, PCBs, and other chemicals, fish oil capsules are considered a cleaner source of omega-3 fatty acids. Many companies filter their fish oil so that these chemicals are removed.

Fish oil capsules are sold in health food stores, drug stores, and online. Most brands should be stored in the fridge to prevent the oil from going rancid.

Although flaxseed oil is often used as an alternative to fish oil, it doesn't appear to have the same anti-inflammatory effects as fish oil at achievable intakes.

Fish oil capsules may interact with blood-thinning drugs such as warfarin and aspirin. Side effects may include indigestion and bleeding. Fish oil should not be taken two weeks before or after surgery. Fish oil can also cause a fishy aftertaste. To prevent this, fish oil is usually taken just before meals.

2) Gamma-linolenic Acid

Although there is more evidence that omega-3 fatty acids may improve symptoms of rhematoid arthrits, some studies suggest that gamma-linoleic acid, another type of essential fatty acid, may also help. It is found in borage oil, black currant seed oil, and evening primrose oils.

A review of studies by researchers with the respected Cochrane Research Collaboration concluded that there was some potential benefit for the use of gamma-linolenic acid in rheumatoid arthritis, although further studies were needed.

3) Boswellia

Boswellia is a herb that comes from a tree native to India. The active ingredients are the boswellic acids, which have been found to block chemical reactions involved in inflammation.

It is used by people with rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Although there have been a couple of preliminary studies that suggest boswellia may reduce symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, we need more research to know whether it's effective. There is also no evidence that it can slow disease progression like some conventional drugs for rheumatoid arthritis.

Boswellia doesn't appear to cause gut irritation that can occur with many conventional pain relievers.

Boswellia is available in pill form. It should say on the label that it is standardized to contain 60 percent boswellic acids. It should not be taken for more than eight to 12 weeks unless under the supervision of a qualified health practitioner.


4) Devil's Claw

Devil's claw is a plant native to southern Africa. Its name comes from the small hooks on the plant's fruit. The active ingredients in devil's claw are believed to be iridoid glycosides called harpagosides, which are found in the secondary root.

Devil's claw has been used for thousands of years in Africa for fever, rheumatoid arthritis, skin conditions, and conditions involving the gallbladder, pancreas, stomach and kidneys.

A study published in the journal Rheumatology compared a devil's claw extract providing 60 mg harpagosides a day and and 12.5 mg a day of the anti-inflammatory Vioxx (now off the market) for 6 weeks in 79 patients with an acute exacerbation of low back pain. Devil's claw was as effective as Vioxx in reducing pain.

More studies, however, are needed before we can confirm that devil's claw is effective for rheumatoid arthritis. For more information about devil's claw, read the Devil's Claw Fact Sheet.

Eczema Review and Proven effective Treatment

By: http://www.OWorking.com


"I had Eczema..."

In the beginning, it cropped up in common places like my elbows and wrists. I could hide behind long sleeves in the winter - but it wasn't long before summer rolled around and shorts, t-shirts and sandals.

And that's when you'd hear the whispers. The gossip. The questionable looks from teachers and other parents who wondered if you were getting abused at home for all the red, irritable patches on your skin that looked like someone punched you straight in the face

Names like "Leper", "Creep" and "Scaly" still ring in the back of my mind like it was yesterday. That's why, when I started noticing Samuel scratching his back against a door frame, I lifted up his shirt and noticed all the sure-fire signs of eczema:

Blotchy red skin
Scaly patches with oozing
Incredible itching that keeps coming back
Skin that would heal and then break out again

"Eczema Free Forever" is currently one of best  effective  Eczema treatments, which can easily get from here.
Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is not one specific skin condition but a group of skin conditions that cause inflammation of the skin. Eczema is not caused by an infection. The condition may be temporary or chronic, mild or, in rare instances, very serious.
Serious cases usually occur when:
it is severe enough to cause complications, such as skin infections
an affected person also contracts the herpes simplex virus
an affected person has a violent allergic reaction caused by contact dermatitis
Contact dermatitis is the most common type of skin inflammation. It's a temporary reaction to an irritant or an allergen (a substance that can cause an allergic reaction). An example is poison ivy.
Atopic dermatitis is the prevalent form of chronic eczema. It is a genetically inherited condition that tends to run in families who also suffer from hay fever and asthma. Atopic dermatitis will affect about 10% to 20% of people at some point in their lives.
Seborrheic dermatitis is eczema of the scalp. It may also affect the face or chest. In adults, mild seborrhea is known as dandruff. In babies, it tends to look more severe and is called cradle cap.
Dyshidrotic dermatitis occurs on the palms of the hands, sides of the fingers, and the soles of the feet, and it is associated with itching and blisters.
Nummular dermatitis normally affects older adults. Although its cause is unknown, it often starts after trauma to the skin (e.g., burn, cut, or scrape). Round patches of scaly, inflamed skin may appear anywhere on the body. Winter is the peak period for this condition. It tends to strike dry skin.
Stasis dermatitis (or gravitational eczema) affects the lower legs of older adults. It is basically a poor circulation problem, usually due to blood not being able to get out of the legs well. It is caused by varicose veins.
Neurodermatitis (or Lichen simplex chronicus) is a non-allergic itch, which often appears in times of stress. The condition is prolonged and sometimes spreads if you scratch.

Causes of Eczema
Genetic inheritance plays a major role in most forms of eczema.
Atopic dermatitis is an inherited oversensitivity of the immune system. Genes play a role in allergies, too, though it usually takes prolonged exposure to a given allergen before it becomes a nuisance.
Of course, there are some chemicals that will irritate any skin. Harsh irritants can give anyone a temporary bout of contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis may be caused by irritants or allergens.
The exact cause of seborrheic dermatitis is not known, but it appears to be linked to the yeast called Pityrosporum ovale, which inhabits most human scalps. Genetics, emotional stress, and climate play a role in the severity of the condition. Some medical conditions such as HIV and Parkinson's disease may also play a role.
Stasis dermatitis is caused by poor circulation in the lower extremities. Fluid builds up in the capillaries due to raised blood pressure. This causes inflammation of the skin.
Neurodermatitis may be caused by certain triggers, such as insect bites or emotional stress. It occurs when the nerve endings in the skin become irritated. There are also general risk factors than will aggravate any kind of eczema. These include harsh soap, rubber gloves, wool, very hot water, and emotional stress.
Symptoms and Complications of Eczema
Atopic dermatitis appears as red, itchy, dry skin. It tends to first appear in childhood, and may disappear completely before adulthood. It most often affects the area behind the knees and around the elbows, as well as the face. In infants, it often appears on the chest, face, scalp, and neck. Atopic people who contract the herpes simplex virus can be struck by eczema herpeticum, a serious secondary infection of the inflamed skin that causes a worsened rash and fever.
Contact dermatitis often causes a dry and intensely itchy, red rash. Depending on the trigger to the reaction, the rash may actually be painful, forming blisters that cause discharge before then crusting over. Still other reactions caused by irritants cause swelling at the affected area. The area involved may be a clue to the responsible allergen or irritant. The worst forms of allergic contact dermatitis, such as severe latex reactions, can be associated with the potentially fatal allergic reaction called anaphylaxis, which is a body-wide response to the allergen.
Seborrheic dermatitis in adults is dandruff. In babies, it can form a thick yellow flaky rash on the scalp. In severe cases, bacteria can build up in fatty deposits, producing an unpleasant odour.
Dyshidrotic dermatitis can cause blisters on the palms of the hands, sides of the fingers, and soles of the feet. The skin will feel itchy or you may feel a burning sensation, and it can crack or peel.
Nummular eczema appears as itchy, red, coin-shaped areas with discharge on the limbs and torso.
Stasis dermatitis appears as inflamed, scaly skin around the lower legs and ankles. Over time, it may turn dark brown.
Neurodermatitis is intensely itchy and tends to promote an itch-scratch-itch cycle that causes red, rough plaques. It usually affects the ankles, lower legs, back, and sides of the neck. Neurodermatitis tends to be most itchy when you are at rest or relaxing.
Diagnosing Eczema
To make a diagnosis of eczema, your doctor will examine your skin, and ask you questions about your symptoms. If you get inflamed skin, it's important to tell your doctor about any allergies you have and any unfamiliar substances you have recently come in contact with.
Looking at the skin itself will often allow a physician to distinguish particular types of eczema. In people over the age of 6, when the doctor suspects the condition is due to an allergen, your doctor may recommend that you undergo a series of allergy skin tests. The physician, usually an allergist, scratches the skin with a variety of common allergens to determine which ones you're allergic to.

Treating and Preventing Eczema
Your doctor will recommend a treatment plan for your eczema that will take into consideration the type of eczema you have, the severity of the eczema, as well as other factors. For most people, a combination of therapies is needed to manage eczema.
The first step in managing contact dermatitis is to remove the irritant responsible for the dermatitis. Treatment options for most types of eczema can include moisturizers and topical corticosteroids (e.g., betamethasone*, desonide, hydrocortisone, prednicarbate). Topical calcineurin inhibitors (e.g., tacrolimus, pimecrolimus) may also be used to treat atopic dermatitis.
For some people with more severe eczema, oral corticosteroids may be needed to control symptoms. For older adults, ultraviolet (UV) radiation is sometimes used, but the skin cancer risk makes this unsuitable for younger people. Antihistamines that cause drowsiness may be recommended for some types of eczema to help with itching and sleep. When skin infections occur, topical or oral antibiotics may be prescribed.
Seborrheic dermatitis can usually be managed with non-medicated shampoos by washing the hair frequently. If this is not effective, over-the-counter dandruff shampoos may help. In some cases, a doctor may prescribe a topical corticosteroid. Baby shampoo can be used daily for infants and children to reduce the likelihood of bacteria developing in the fatty deposits. For cradle cap, mineral oil applied to the dry areas can soften the scales, making them release more easily.
Stasis dermatitis can be helped by keeping in good physical shape so that blood flows freely through the legs. Support stockings can also assist in pumping the blood up out of the leg. And elevating your leg also increases circulation.
Susceptibility to most forms of eczema is genetic and unavoidable. Knowing what allergens and irritants to avoid can help you get through life without being inconvenienced by eczema.
Other tips to help you deal with eczema include:
Bathe in cool or tepid water with gentle soap. Minimize the use of soap when possible.
Use moisturizers immediately after you bathe to keep the moisture locked in. Avoid moisturizers with perfumes, as they may worsen the condition.
Avoid scratching affected areas. Some people wear cotton gloves at night to prevent scratching in their sleep.
Keep your fingernails short.
Don't let sweat stay on your skin.
Avoid clothes that don't let the skin breathe.

*All medications have both common (generic) and brand names. The brand name is what a specific manufacturer calls the product (e.g., Tylenol®). The common name is the medical name for the medication (e.g., acetaminophen). A medication may have many brand names, but only one common name. This article lists medications by their common names. For more information on brand names, speak with your doctor or pharmacist.

Natural Remedies for Asthma

By: http:// www.OWorking.com

There some Natural Remedies for Asthma, so far one of the best ones is The Dramatic Asthma Relief Report, which not only consider effect or Benefits of Diet and Herbs, but also  the safe issue.

Studies have shown that while medication is one of the most effective asthma remedies but more asthma sufferers are turning to natural remedies for asthma in place of more traditional medications. Diet is being shown to have a greater impact on the treatment of asthma than once thought with clinical studies showing significant improvements in those who changed their diets over those who did not.
The Importance of Childhood Diet in Preventing the Development of Asthma
Because asthma most commonly occurs in children, it is important to be sure your child has a proper diet to help prevent the onset of the condition. This is particularly true if there is a family history of asthma or if there is a high rate of environmental factors that may contribute to the onset or exacerbation of the condition.
Fruit has been shown to be effective as way to help your child avoid developing asthma but can also help if your child already suffers from asthma. Many studies have shown that one of the best natural remedies for asthma in children is to make sure the child is eating a diet rich in fruit like apples, oranges, melons and berries.
Diet and the Adult Asthma Patient
Often asthma occurs in adults due to environmental factors or viral infections but it has been proven that simply adjusting ones diet can greatly reduce the symptoms of asthma even in adults. Of course asthma varies in severity, but studies indicate eating a healthier diet can assist even those with severe asthma.
As in children, a high daily intake of fruits particularly apples and citrus fruits can help ease the symptoms of asthma or prevent its development. Vegetables also play an important role even though they are often over looked. Adding tomatoes, carrots and leafy vegetables like lettuce and things of that nature to your diet is a great natural remedy for asthma. Taking these steps may not eliminate asthma completely, but your asthma attacks will generally be less severe as will your dependence on an inhaler.
Herbs as a Natural Remedy for Asthma
Butterbur is currently one of the most talked about herbal natural remedies for asthma as many of the active components of the shrub have been shown to soothe muscle spasms and act as an anti-inflammatory which can help control asthma symptoms. The shrub grows in Asia, Europe and North America but some have reported side effects you may want to take into consideration. It is a member of the ragweed family so anyone with allergies should avoid it and it may also cause headache, dizziness, fainting, nausea, fatigue or vomiting.
