Eucalyptus is an aromatic herb that has properties that provide great relief as a decongestant and an expectorant.
For centuries Vick’s which is made as a Eucalyptus rub is applied to the back and chest of a person who has a common cold or any other respiratory distress. It is known to loosen the mucus in the chest so that it can be coughed up and expelled.

Eucalyptus also has some antibiotic association with it. Eucalyptus has both internal and external uses. Internally it is the leaves that are used for herbal teas that are able to assist people by acting as a diuretic, an anti-diabetic and also has some anti-tumor properties. The Eucalyptus oils are almost never used internally or ingested but on rare occasion a doctor might use a miniscule amount for nasal congestion, bronchial disease and other respiratory problems.

Externally, Eucalyptus is used as a vapor rub and while it is recommended that it be rubbed on the chest and back area it is also good for inhalation in such ways as steam vaporizers. Some even boil water and drop a teaspoon of vapor rub into it so an ill person can breathe in the fumes which will help to break up the congestion in the lungs. Quite often people have used the very same rub for sprains, bruises, and muscle aches and pains.

Never underestimate the power of Eucalyptus oil as it can be beneficial for many reasons. First it is a very powerful antiseptic, it is used to treat pyorrhea which is a gum disease. It is often used to treat burns too. One thing you can bank on is that insects do not like Eucalyptus so if you mix some with water and put it in a spray bottle you can be sure that bugs will stay away. A small drop on the tip of the tongue is said to take away nausea. Many people will soak a cloth in Eucalyptus and put them in their pantries or closets to fend off bugs and roaches. Another quick tip is a few sniffs of Eucalyptus is said to help someone who has fainted and when mixed with cinnamon is known to alleviate the symptoms of the flu.

Eucalyptus is also commonly used for aromatherapy too because when mixed with other oils it is extremely beneficial. The effects of Eucalyptus are stimulating and balancing and the scent is very woody. For the purposes of aromatherapy it blends well with Juniper, Lavender, and Marjoram. Eucalyptus when used in aromatherapy does the body good as it helps to relieve mental fatigue, improves mental clarity and alertness, sharpens the senses, refreshes and revives, stimulating, energizing.

It also has great effects on the body as it feels cooling; it relieves pain and sore muscles, breaks up congestion, and reduces inflammation. Eucalyptus incorporated with aromatherapy offers pure enjoyment. Inhaling the fragrance of Eucalyptus can reduce stress and lessen depression. It makes for an overall sense of better well being. Eucalyptus is great for both bathing and also for massage oils.

Pregnancy can be one of the greatest experiences in your life. It can be joyous and worrisome all at the same time. Most of the fear is from the unknown. This article can help alleviate your fears by helping you understand just what is going on and what to expect as your pregnancy progresses.

Use a birth ball during pregnancy to stay fit. You can sit on the ball instead of the sofa to strengthen your muscles. It will help you keep your posture straight which will help in preventing the aches and pains that come from bad posture. You can also use it after pregnancy as well to get back into the swing of things.

If you have decided how to have your baby, maybe natural childbirth, or caesarian section, you should write a birth plan. The birth plan will detail all of your expectations for delivery and should be shared with your doctors. Having this plan will calm your anxiety as your delivery date approaches.

When you first find out that you are pregnant it is important to tell anyone and everyone that you are close to. Countless times families have been destroyed over the simple phrase, “Why didn’t you tell me?” Some people may be upset that you are pregnant, but if they were important to you in the first place they’ll be supportive.

If you wish to give birth vaginally after having a c-section, make sure you ask if your hospital will allow it before the big day arrives. Some hospitals will not allow vaginal births after cesareans (VBACs), which are considered riskier due to the possibility of uterine rupture. Checking ahead of time means no surprises on your child’s birthday.

Sleeping will become harder for you during your pregnancy. During the third trimester, sleep on your left side, this will provide you with the best blood flow to your fetus, uterus and kidneys. Remember, not to lay on your back.

Look around your home and work and get rid of chemicals that might be harmful to your growing pregnancy. Cleaning solutions are one of the biggest offenders in our daily lives, so start replacing them with more natural solutions. After having the baby, go ahead and keep them out of the house to have a safer home for the baby.

Heartburn is very common in pregnant women. The hormone progesterone is released as soon as you become pregnant and may cause pregnancy heartburn. To help, avoid acidic, fatty or spicy foods, and don’t eat close to bedtime. Sleep elevated with pillows to keep stomach acid down. If heartburn continues, ask your doctor which antacids might be safe and effective.

As noted in the start of the article, pregnancy can be one of the greatest experiences you can have. Many of the fears are simply due to all of the unknown and unexpected changes that take place. By taking note of the information in this article, you can help to make your pregnancy a more enjoyable experience.

Medical How It Works Saving the Heart

There is no cure for congestive heart failure, but there are things that you can do to help prolong your life and protect your heart from farther damage. Treatment is a matter of changing your lifestyle and drug therapy, which will change your quality of life. The medical field improvement over the past twenty years has grown in leaps and bounds. Lifestyle changes are the same quit smoking, losing excess weight, drinking less alcohol, and eating healthy low saturated fat and low salt foods. Then do not forget to exercise which is helpful for most patients. This is good advice that is a key to preventing heart failure but the most important is the medical. This is where your physician is very important do not attempt to try to prescribe your own medicines. The physician is well equipped to provide you with the proper medical treatment.

The heart like other parts of our bodies can malfunction in different ways. That is why we should trust the cardiologist a specialist in the medical field. One of the most common medicines prescribed for patients is a beta-blocker. The beta-blocker reduces the heart rate and output of blood by counteracting a hormone called noradrenalin. While this drug can prevent heart failure, it is not recommended for anyone with severe heart failure.

Patients who suffer from fluid retention and/or high blood pressure the medical field suggests that a diuretic will help compensate but some of the side effects is loss of potassium, weakness, muscle cramps, and joint pains. Let your doctor know right away if you feel any ill effects from the diuretic.

This is just an example of some drugs used by the medical field that can help prevent heart failure. There are other treatments that the medical field uses are just as valuable.
Congestive heart failure can become quiet extreme that is why the medical field has been experimenting with heart transplants and mechanical pumps, which are attached to the heart. There is another experimental procedure for severe heart failure, which is available at a few U.S. medical centers. This procedure, called cardiomyoplasty, involves detaching one end of a muscle in the back, wrapping it around the heart, and then suturing the muscle to the heart. An implanted electric stimulator causes the back muscle to contract and pump blood from the heart.

The medical field has also another surgical procedure called mitral valve repair may help extend and improve the lives of people with congestive heart failure. This procedure aims to correct leaky valves resulting from cardiomyopathy, or heart muscle disease, by surgically inserting a flexible annuloplasty ring at the mitral valve opening.

The medical field has made great strides in medicines and in surgical procedures that greatly increase the quality of life, we have. The medical field has experimented with such things as healthy heart diets and specialized exercises that can only help to improve quality of life. Now it is up to you it is your heart!

Your epidural space is the area which surrounds the spinal cord and the nerves coming out of it. It is the area associated with severe back pains and inflammation. Your epidural steroid injections are long lasting steroid (CORTISONE) injections for your Epidural space to help you relieve your severe back pains, inflammation and/or swelling of nerves in the Epidural space, and to reduce pain, tingling & numbness and other symptoms caused by nerve inflammation / irritation or swelling.

However, there are risks, side effects, complications, and adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections. 1% to 2% of all injections may have minor side effects that may include minor infections, but 0.1% to 0.01% of injections may have adverse reaction.

Some of the side effects of epidural steroid injections may include a transient decrease in immunity, Cataracts, transient flushing, increased appetite, weight gain, high blood sugar (mainly in diabetics), water retention, suppression of body’s own natural production of cortisone, etc.

The adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections may include severe infections. An adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections may include bleeding inside the Epidural space with nerve damage. This adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections is rare, but it is more common for patients with underlying bleeding disorders.

Dural puncture may be adverse reaction of 0.5% of injections. This adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections may cause a post-dural puncture headache (also called a spinal headache) that usually gets better within a few days. Although rare, a blood patch may be necessary to alleviate the headache.

Stomach ulcers may also be adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections, and severe arthritis of the hips (avascular necrosis) may also an adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections.

However, to prevent the adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections, epidural steroid injections should not be given to given to the people having local or systemic bacterial infections, pregnant women, or the people having bleeding problems. Epidural steroid injections should also not be given to the people having pain from tumor or infection. Epidural steroid injections should not be given to the allergic people, or the patients on blood thinning medications, such as Coumadin, Plavix, and Ticlid. MRI scan should be done prior to the injection to rule out the adverse reaction of epidural steroid injections.

Eat Right To Avoid Loss Of Strength And Energy As You Grow Older (3)

Eat Right To Avoid Loss Of Strength And Energy As You Grow Older

Are you sick of fine lines and grey hairs? Do you want to have the energy you had when you were younger? No matter why aging bothers you, there is something you can do to help. Read on to learn some of the best advice on dealing with the way age changes you.

When it comes to aging, numbers don’t matter, so forget about them and live life beyond categories. Don’t worry about weight, blood pressure, or even your age. Ensure that your doctors are keeping track, though, so you remain healthy. Stick to living for today to ensure that tomorrow is likely to come, too!

Make sure you’re only drinking alcohol in moderation. For those under 65, this means you shouldn’t drink more than two glasses a day. If you’re over 65, this means you shouldn’t drink more than one glass a day. If you’re going to drink alcohol try drinking wine instead since it’s shown to benefit health in small doses, unlike beer or hard liqueur.

Have the seasonal flu vaccine every year. As you get older, you will become more susceptible to illnesses, including the flu. The flu can also do more damage on an older body. So to stay healthy throughout that November-April flu season, have a flu shot every year, preferably in September or October.

Pay attention to your health. While joint aches and morning pains are an inevitable part of growing older, if something hurts excessively, there’s probably a reason. Regular visits to your doctor and a healthy lifestyle will reduce these pains and allow you to be happier and more active as you get older.

Take the time to get to know yourself. Many people do not really know what it is that they enjoy in life. If you take the time to try new things, you may find that you have been missing out on some really wonderful things that this life has to offer you.

So, you have been looking in the mirror? Wanting to look younger and feel good? This will give you motivation you need. Improve your body mass index by shedding off a few unwanted pounds in the upcoming month. Keep a positive mindset, and improve your outlook on life at the same time!

Keep up with the golden rule to treat others as you would like them to treat you. Even though many people think that many of the elderly are mean and grumpy, you do not have to be that way. Treat others with the respect and sensitivity that you would like them to treat you and you are sure to get the same in return.

Your home is your refuge. Fill it with the things that you love. If you love to be around your family, fill it with them. If they cannot be around as often as you would like, fill it with the things that remind you of them. If animals make you happy, adopt a pet that you can love.

It would be nice if we could remain young forever, but since we can’t, we’ll have to settle for looking and feeling younger instead. Thanks to this article, you know plenty of things you can do to turn back the clock and feel young again. All you have left to do is get started.

The Connection Between Spiritual Health and Well-Being

GOPR5998-007

Emotional health is as important as being physically fit and having a sound mind. Our emotional, physical, and mental health are connected with each other that each one affects the health of the other. However, there is another factor that can contribute to a healthy well-being: Spiritual health.

Being spiritual is not just being religious. It is being in touch with the spirit within you. It is finding meaning, hope, comfort, and inner peace in your life. Most people find spirituality through religion. Others find it through music, art or, a connection with nature. Still, others find it in their values and principles.

Spiritual activities such as prayer and meditation foster positive beliefs and comfort which bring healing and a sense of well-being. It may not necessarily cure the illness, but it can help you feel better, prevent some health problems, and help you cope with illness or death.

Whenever life becomes a bore or seems meaningless, or when emotional hurts and pains become overwhelming, we tend to be confused or anxious. We feel dead in our spirits. But those who are spiritually nourished are strongly anchored in their faith and hope. For Christians, boredom is a word that can never be used to describe a person who walks in the love of God. Firm believers have no room for anxiety and depression in their lives. The Christian faith surrenders all their worries and cares to a God who is almighty.

Most people usually associate manifestations of anxiety with a panic attack. This is about senselessly talking and worrying about the various details of our daily life or about sudden, unexpected situations. Stuff that makes your stomach go into knots and gives you a headache and a pain in the back of your neck.

In trying to improve your spiritual health, always remember that every individual is different. What works for you may not work for others. Do what is comfortable for you. Try to identify the things in your life that give you a sense of inner peace, comfort, strength, love, and connection. Set aside a specific time every day to do the things that help you spiritually. These may include doing community service or volunteer work, praying, meditating, singing devotional songs, reading inspirational books, taking nature walks, having quiet time for thinking, doing yoga, playing a sport or attending religious services.

It is important to some doctors who are treating you for an illness to know how your spirituality might be affecting your feelings and thoughts about your medical situation. Do not hesitate to tell your doctor if you think your spiritual beliefs are affecting your health care decisions or your ability to follow your doctor’s recommendations. A spiritual assessment as part of a medical encounter is a practical first step in incorporating consideration of a patient’s spirituality into medical practice. The relationship between spirituality and medicine has been the focus of considerable interest in recent years.

If there are spiritual beliefs, worries or concerns that are causing you stress, talk with your doctor or seek counseling from someone who can help you with these issues.

Adding green tea to your daily routine can really boost your anti-aging regimen! Green tea can help build your resistance against many diseases such as cancer and can also defend you against dementia and other neurological ailments of aging. Also of note, green tea can assist your body in its ability to burn fat, so making it a permanent addition to your grocery list is a very good idea!

One of the easiest ways to get more out of life and enjoy life more is to turn off the television. How much time is wasted sitting in front of a television and not living life? It is the same as shorting your life by sitting in front of the idiot box not out enjoying life.

Regular visits to your doctor and a healthy lifestyle will reduce these pains and allow you to be happier and more active as you get older.

Instead of driving everywhere that you go, take a walk to the shop if you are within a mile. This will provide you with additional flexibility, which will be very important to your joints for combating the signs of aging.

Symptoms And Preventative Measures Of Heart Disease

As we get older, the arteries surrounding the heart become smaller and smaller as fatty deposits stick to the walls of the veins and arteries surrounding the heart. As this happens, the flow of oxygen is restricted and the heart becomes “oxygen starved”. This is the time that a heart attack occurs. There are several things to look for that are signs of heart disease and ways that you can prevent it.

Someone can have severe coronary artery disease (CAD) without experiencing a heart attack or experiencing any chest pains. If you experience any of the following symptoms, even occasionally, seek the attention or advice of your doctor.

-Chest pain
-Shortness of breath
-Palpitations (an irregular heartbeat, skipped beats, or a “flip-flop” feeling in your chest
-Fast or racing heartbeat
-Weakness
-Dizziness
-Nausea
-Sweating (not due to exercise)

The most common symptom is chest pain or angina. This can be described as and uncomfortable feeling usually felt in the chest just below the breastbone. There are other places that the discomfort or pain can be felt including the left shoulder (because your heart is on the left side of your body), arms, neck, throat, jaw or even your back. Angina has often been described as a heavy feeling or aching, burning, fullness and squeezing. The symptoms often resemble those of heartburn or indigestion. Get emergency treatment if the feeling lasts for more than about 15 minutes.

For those who have not experienced a heart attack or who have not displayed symptoms of coronary artery disease can work these preventative measures into their lifestyle to greatly reduce the risk of heart disease.

Quit smoking! This includes not only cigarette smokers, but pipe and cigar smokers as well. Even smoking just one cigarette per day can double the risk of a hear attack.

-Lower your cholesterol. Cholesterol in the body produces fatty substances which can clog the arteries or greatly reduce the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. If your cholesterol level is above 200 mg you are at risk. Women should have a cholesterol profile done every year beginning at age 40 and men at age 30. If there is a history of heart disease in the family, cholesterol levels should be checked each year beginning at age 20.

-Raise your HDL levels of cholesterol. HDL is the “good” cholesterol. This is the cholesterol that carries the “bad” cholesterol away from the arteries back to the liver. From there it is removed from the bloodstream.

-Reduce high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the force applied in your arteries as your heart beats. The higher your blood pressure, the harder your heart and kidneys are working and this in turn increases your risk of heart disease.

-Maintain a healthy body weight. The more you weigh, the harder your heart has to work. Having excess weight on your body is not healthy and causes your organs to function differently. Women should aim to have a waist measurement of less than 35 inches and men less than 40. Your body mass index (body fat) should range from 18.5 to 24.9.

Exercise. Moderate exercise for about 30 minutes a day for at least 3 days is all that is required to gain the benefits.

-Eat heart healthy foods. Fatty foods with increased sugar and fat levels do not fall into this category. Fruits, vegetables, proteins, nuts and whole grains do.

-Reduce stress. Stress causes the heart to work overtime, therefore increasing the risk of heart disease.

-Limit alcohol consumption.

If you are uncertain about your health in relation to any of these topics, consult your doctor for advice.

Arthritis Aches And Pains: Ways To Minimize The Discomfort

201704222012 5

Were you aware that not only does arthritis cause pain and discomfort for the individual, but it also costs the United States just under $130 million per year? This is important to know because it shows that our economy takes a huge hit in addition to our bodies. Read this article for further information.

Be cautious with sun exposure if you have arthritis. Many medications used to treat the condition can cause sensitivity to sunlight. In addition, specific forms of arthritis may be triggered or worsened by exposure to excessive sunlight. Continue to enjoy the outdoors, but protect yourself with sunscreen, sunglasses and so forth in order to lessen the potential harm from sunlight.

Double check with your doctor or pharmacist to find out if any of the arthritis drugs you’re taking have adverse reactions with food or other drugs. For example, many prescriptions become longer lasting in the blood stream if you ingest grapefruit, leading to higher levels of the medicine in your body than your doctor prescribed.

Many people with arthritis become depressed because of their condition. It can alter many different aspects of their lives. Consider going to counseling to help you feel better. Counseling can help you identify problems in a way that will help you to think and act differently so that you can feel good about yourself.

Learn the information that is out there about your condition. When you get the diagnosis of your specific type of arthritis, hit the internet and all the sources that are offered, even pamphlets and brochures from the doctor’s office, all about arthritis and your specific type, so you know what you are dealing with and how to fight back.

Add Epsom salt to your bath water. Epsom salts relax the body and help relieve stiffness, swelling, and pain. Combining these great benefits with a warm bath in the morning hours can easily increase flexibility and reduce pain, allowing you to have a more energized and relaxed day ahead of you.

Take a nap. Leading a sedentary lifestyle is not a healthy move for anyone, but arthritis sufferers will often be hit by bouts of fatigue. In these cases, take a short nap to give your body the rest it needs, and you will find yourself more easily able to complete your everyday tasks.

During periods of non-inflammation and with the permission of your doctor, exercise to build energy and slow the onset of pain. Swimming or exercising in water is great for your joints because the water offers resistance without high strain. Water can also keep you cool thereby acting as a natural soother for pain and discomfort should it set in.

Start using other parts of your body to do the work when you are lifting items. You can use your shoulder to help get something that is placed a little higher. Incorporating other areas of your body will reduce the strain that you put on your most heavily used joints and muscles.

In conclusion, you now know that arthritis can hit home by causing great discomfort to you and your loved ones, as well as cause a great dent in the country’s budget. Hopefully, this article will help you to understand how big of an impact this ailment causes and what you can do to help.
