What is Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis?...

Sep 14, 2016 by

Adapted by Melody Gluth Thyroid The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck. It secretes hormones that influence almost all of the metabolic processes. Thyroid problems can be as small as a goiter (enlarged gland) or as life-threatening as cancer. Most thyroid issues can be easily managed through treatment, though it may cause some discomfort. Hyperthyroidism is overproduction of thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism, in contrast, is when the body is not producing enough thyroid hormones. This can cause lower energy levels, and in some rare cases, it can bring on a myxedema coma, which can be potentially fatal. Hypothyroidism is the cause of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. What is Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis? Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks thyroid tissues. At some point, the tissue dies and stops producing...

Avoid Allergic Reactions from Hair Dye By Using Other Alternatives...

Sep 12, 2016 by

Adapted by Melody Gluth Changing your hair color is simple and easy, thanks to the many dyes available in stores and salons. There is a wide assortment of colors and brands to choose from. Choosing a new hair color wouldn’t seem to be the kind of decision that comes with much peril. But anyone intent on going from blond to brunette, or from grey haired to redhead could be in for a surprise. In fact, chemicals used in hair dyes can trigger allergic reactions, and skin exposed to the chemical paraphenylenediamin (PPD) may become swollen, red, blistered, dry and cracked. Even if you have used a certain brand time and time again, you can still have an allergic reaction at one point. Especially if you are using dyes that you bought from a drug...

Guna-Flam: Homeopathic Pain Relief Complex...

Sep 8, 2016 by

By Dorothy Desperate for pain relief and needing an honest answer? Homeopathic remedies for pain management might work better for you! Let me tell you our story: Earlier this year, our publisher (Trina) got into a rear-end collision on a highway and injured her neck and spine. She was prescribed typical pain relief medication, which caused lots of uncomfortable side-effects (i.e., constipation and dizziness). She ventured further with chiropractors and acupuncture; this only easing her discomfort temporarily. Frustrated with her injuries, she searched for a new way to alleviate her symptoms. After waiting with anticipation for this miracle pain reliever, Trina felt 60% better on day one. These Italian homeopathic drops, Guna-Flam, were very effective at soothing pain initially upon ingestion and caused no side effects whatsoever. They are satisfying and relieve minor aches...

Traditional Chinese Medicine Can Help Kill Cancer Cells...

Sep 8, 2016 by

By Andrew Spence Adapted by Melody Gluth Recent Research Recently, researchers have shown how Traditional Chinese Medicine works to kill cancer cells, paving the way for its potential use in western settings. Compound kushen injection (CKI) has been used for about 10 years in Chinese clinics as an adjunct to western chemotherapy but how it works has previously not been known. CKI contains extracts from the roots of Kushen and Baituling, as well as many other chemicals. CKI is able to interfere with various signal transduction pathways and block multiple receptor tyrosine kinases. South Australian Researchers at the University of Adelaide used high-throughput next generation sequencing technologies to identify genes and biological pathways targeted by CKI when applied to breast cancer cells grown in the laboratory. Study leader Professor David Adelson, Director of the...

Resistance and Possibilities by John English...

Aug 16, 2016 by

Resistance and Possibilities   You should never resist a challenge because there is so much benefit not to do so!   And, you should pay close attention to any resistance that swells up within you.   Now there are many ways you might have become creative in developing resistance. Such as, avoidance behaviors, being defensive and stubbornness, to name a few.   The reason you should pay attention to anything you resist is because resistance is directly related to your growth in personal power.   Let me explain.   Most often it takes more power than is currently available to break through any resistance. Consider a chick breaking through the shell of an egg.   At first the chick doesn’t have near the strength and power to break through to freedom and more growth....
