Cases of Lung Damage Lead to Self-Reflection

With the growing number of people being affected by lung damage and chemical burns of the respiratory system due to vaping, are you worried or wondering….

Is it possible to maintain good health?

What your body needs to function properly?

Why conventional medicine is becoming more complicated and costly and in some cases simply ineffective?

A growing number of people are turning to alternative medicine and natural healing–simple, traditional low-tech methods of preventing illnesses and solving everyday health problems.

Do you have unanswered questions on….

Why are people flocking to health food stores, with their lotions and potions, and what keeps them going back for more?

What to do if you or someone in your family falls ill?

Are these therapies really old wives tales or can they really work?

Even mainstream doctors have begun to recommend natural drugless therapies’ to treat both everyday complaints and serious illnesses. Dietary modifications, for instance, has become the weapons of choice against a number of diseases that would have been treated mainly with prescription drugs a generation ago.

It is now known that many conditions are caused by the wrong diet and can be reversed by the right diet.

Heart disease, cancer, weight problems, arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure–they can all be treated to some degree with foods.

Natural therapies found in alternative medicine are actually much older than Western treatments such as surgeries and antibiotics. Experts estimate that herbal remedies and Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, has been around for 5,000 years.

Many alternative medicine remedies began with scientific research or clinical impressions reported by physicians working with safe, natural substances.

But we live in a generation now that has been cut off from this age-old tradition of self-reliance. Healing and health care have become almost–the exclusive province of duly licensed physicians. While doctors and other professionals-are indeed great to have around, what is not so great is when you cannot do anything without them.

Shouldn’t we be able to do something to save our health–maybe even our lives–without a doctor?

What happens when medical help is not so readily available?

What happens when doctoring simply does not work?

Some of us go to doctor after doctor, and still no help. Is that the end of the line?

While antibiotics have saved millions of lives, they have not really solved some resurgence of germs that are turning up in new forms that do not respond to conventional therapies.

There has been a real shift in the way people think about their health. Rising health care cost is a factor in the recent surge of interest in alternative medicine.

Many people are attracted to the alternative physicians emphasis on treating the whole person–body, mind and spirit. Most importantly some physicians use intensive counseling to help patients find out whether aspects of their daily lives, such as job stress, marital problems diet or sleeping habits might be behind their symptoms.

In this age of managed care and impersonal group practices patients find this individualized approach of alternative medicine particularly appealing.

One of the principal goals of natural healing is to break the cycle of dependency and allow people to be more in control of their own lives.

You Don’t Need to Lose Perspective to Lose Weight

Obesity is the principal cause for a variety of serious illnesses including heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer. It also inclines to raise your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and makes you more potentially to acquire diabetes. Therefore, obesity is one of the most significant but preventable causes of death and disability among people.

The number of people in the United States who are overweight has increased dramatically over the last decade. Present day figures show that an estimated two thirds of adults and one fourth  of children and teenagers in the United States are overweight.

The number of calories you eat and the number of calories you use each day are the factors that control your body weight. Therefore, to lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you use. You can do this by becoming more physically active, by eating less or both. Your weight loss program should also help you make changes that you can adhere for the rest of your life.

How to determine if you are overweight

The most usual and easiest way to know if you are overweight is to determine your Body Mass Index (BMI). The BMI looks at how much you should weigh based on your height. It is a relative comparison of the balance of fat vis-a-vis lean in your body.

You can find out your BMI by using the following formula below:

1.Divide your weight (in pounds) by your height (in inches) squared

2.Multiply the results of Step 1 by 705.

For example, if you are 5’3” (63 inches) and weigh 138 pounds, the equation looks like this:

BMI=(138/(63×63)) x705=24.5

Your BMI should be somewhere in the 19 to 25 range. A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight and a BMI over 30 is considered obese.

If you decide that you need to lose weight, first, you should focus on eating a healthy diet. Determine what you are eating. To lose weight while remaining healthy, you should try to lose only about 1/2 to 1 pound a week. One pound equals 3,500 calories. So if you exercise off 500 calories per day, you will lose about a pound a week. Losing weight will be easier if you combine exercise with diet management and proper nutrition.

Proper exercise and a healthy diet, when combined, are the best means of losing and or maintaining your weight.

The History of Herbal Remedies and Aromatherapy

Herbal remedies are available everywhere and manufacturers of these products are numerous. The products can range from capsules containing a single type of herb to “specialty formulas” such as those marketed for “menopause symptoms” or “stress relief” which often contain many different herbs in a single capsule. Determining which of these to take and how much has become a challenge for many consumers.

Dietary Supplements and Herbs

These treatments use ingredients found in nature. Examples of herbs include ginseng, ginkgo and echinacea, while examples of other dietary supplements include selenium, glucosamine and SAMe.

Many of today’s conventional medicines began as folk medicines, including digoxin, which treats congestive heart failure, and quinine, which treats malaria. Many people trust in herbal medicine because of its long history, and others like its use of “natural” products. Remember, though, that natural doesn’t mean that herbs can’t hurt you.

The Beginnings of Aromatherapy

Some sources trace the history of aromatherapy back to the Greeks. In the 10th century, the Arabs invented a process of distillation that allowed for more efficient extraction of the essential oils from plants, and for centuries, cultures from every part of the globe have inhaled aromas, drunk potions, and worn aromatic amulets as healing aids and to protect them from harm.

By extracting the essential oils from plants and herbs, aromatherapy has been, and continues to be, used to address a wide range of physical and emotional ailments, from headaches to herpes, from dry skin to acne, and from arthritis to asthma.

In modern times, France and England have led the attempt to reintroduce many ancient remedies to the world in the early 1900s, and to help aromatherapy gain greater acceptance in the traditional medical community. France still leads the world in rediscovering modern uses for ancient remedies, and many French doctors routinely prescribe aromatic remedies for their patients. That practice is reinforced by the fact that French pharmacies stock a wide variety of essential oils, and insurance companies are willing to pay for treatments involving ancient healing methods.
