Glucosamine

Vitamin for Joints

Dietary Supplements, for example, Chondroitin Sulfate or Glucosamine are now and then utilized as a part of treating Arthritis. Numerous individuals ask whether Glucosamine Sulfate is superior to Glucosamine HCL. To put it essentially, Glucosamine Sulfate has been turned out to be more successful yet since it is inferred from shellfish, Glucosamine HCL is the more secure choice as it is determined from vegetables. Vitamins, uniquely Vitamin D3 and to a lesser degree Vitamin E are prescribed in patients with arthritis joint pain as they help in the assimilation of Calcium that strengthens bones and joints and expands resistance. http://goo.gl/Gjp4 hE  (Aug 1, 2014 | post #2)

The Link Between Depression and Acne

Taking care of yourself gives you a reason to feel good about your body, and can give you a lift when you need it most. 1. Eat well. Eating a healthy diet is good for your body, and will ultimately help you feel better. Eating right will give your entire body, including your skin, the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Are there any foods you should avoid when you have acne? Maybe. A few small studies have shown a correlation between certain foods and acne severity. Dairy products and high glycemic index foods seem to be the worst offenders. These foods don't necessarily cause acne in a otherwise clear-skinned person, but may worsen existing acne breakouts. So, if a food seems to make your pimples worse, avoid that particular dish. 2. Get enough sleep. Face it, everything seems worse when you're tired and cranky. Try to get eight hours of sleep each night, or take regular naps when you need them. When you're well rested it's easier to keep things in perspective. Just make sure you're cleansing your face before hitting the pillow each night. Removing dirt, excess oil, and makeup will help get your skin into shape, and help you remember to apply those acne treatments too. 3. Exercise regularly. One study suggests those with acne tend to exercise less than their clear-skinned counterparts. But exercise is a great way to improve your mood! Not only does regular exercise make your heart and lungs strong, but it helps you beat stress and can ease anxiety and depression. Besides, when you feel good about the things your body can do, it helps you to focus less on your skin. Always shower as soon as possible after exercising, though. Sweat can be irritating and worsen acne, especially back and body breakouts. 4. Start treating your acne, if you haven't already. Acne won't go away on its own, so the sooner you start treatment the better. If your acne is mild, try an over-the-counter product. But don't wait to see a doctor if you're not seeing any improvement after several weeks. Your doctor has an arsenal of acne-fighting treatments that will get you on your way to clearer skin. It's easy to feel helpless when you're breaking out and don't know how to stop it. Just knowing you've taken a step to improve your skin can help you feel more in control. 5. Get help, if you need it. Acne can be an upsetting problem, causing you to feel self-conscious or embarrassed. You're not being vain. Many people with acne feel the same way you do. But if acne is impacting your life to the point that it is negatively affecting your self-esteem, it's time to get help. Talk to your doctor. Don't dismiss your feelings, and don't be ashamed. Depression, anxiety, social withdrawal, and thoughts of suicide are all warning signs you shouldn't ignore. Please get help right away. With help, you can feel better. http://acne.about. com/od/livingwitha cne/tp/TakingCareO fYou.htm  (Nov 18, 2013 | post #6)

Fresh hope for acne sufferers

I found this article informative: There are various types of pimples Whiteheads - remain under the skin and are very small. Blackheads - clearly visible, they are black and appear on the surface of the skin. Remember that a blackhead is not caused by dirt. Scrubbing your face vigorously when you see blackheads will not help. Papules - visible on the surface of the skin. They are small bumps, usually pink. Pustules - clearly visible on the surface of the skin. They are red at their base and have pus at the top. Nobules - clearly visible on the surface of the skin. They are large, solid pimples. They are painful and are embedded deep in the skin. Cysts - clearly visible on the surface of the skin. They are painful, and are filled with pus. Cysts can easily cause scars. How common is acne? Dermatologists (skin specialists) say that approximately three-quarters of 11 to 30 year-olds will get acne at some time. Acne can affect people of all races and all ages. It most commonly affects adolescents and young adults, although there are people in their fifties who still get acne. According to Brown University, USA, approximately 17 million Americans are estimated to have acne at any one time. Although acne affects both men and women, young men suffer from acne for longer - probably because testosterone, which is present in higher quantities in young men, can make acne worse. What causes acne? Nobody is completely sure what causes acne. Experts believe the primary cause is a rise in androgen levels - androgen is a type of hormone. Androgen levels rise when a human becomes an adolescent. Rising androgen levels make the oil glands under your skin grow; the enlarged gland produces more oil. Excessive sebum can break down cellular walls in your pores, causing bacteria to grow. Some studies indicate that susceptibility to acne could also be genetic. Some medications which contain androgen and lithium may cause acne. Greasy cosmetics may cause acne in some susceptible people. Hormone changes during pregnancy may cause acne to either develop for the first time, or to recur.  (Nov 18, 2013 | post #3)

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Arthritis

Arthritis (from Greek arthro-, joint + -itis, inflammation; plural: arthritides) is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints.[1][2] There are over 100 different forms of arthritis.[3][4] The most common form, osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), is a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection. The major complaint by individuals who have arthritis is joint pain. Pain is often a constant and may be localized to the joint affected. The pain from arthritis is due to inflammation that occurs around the joint, damage to the joint from disease, daily wear and tear of joint, muscle strains caused by forceful movements against stiff painful joints and fatigue.  (Nov 15, 2013 | post #11)

Acne Battle Plan

You may go for these home treatment: 1 Use baking soda. Mix equal parts baking soda and water to form a paste. Apply the paste onto acne individually, not over the entire face. Dip a Q-Tip into the baking soda mixture and apply that way. Leave the baking soda paste on your face for about 10 minutes, or until dry. Wash off with very cold water. It will help close the pores significantly. Repeat at most two times a day. If your skin becomes irritated or excessively oily due to use, make sure to discontinue treatment. 2 Try using lemon juice as an acne remedy. Cut a lemon in half and gently rub the open-side of the lemon onto the acne. The stinging feeling means it's working. Lemons contain citric acid, which attacks the bacteria that cause acne. Make sure to wipe/wash the lemon juice off, and use sunscreen afterwards. Citric acid can bleach the skin and puts it at significantly higher likelihood of sun damage. 3 Slice a raw potato and apply to skin. Slice a raw potato in half and apply onto acne. Raw potato can heal as well as act an anti-inflammatory. Again, wash the residue off your skin gently with water after using. 4 Use toothpaste for pimples. If you have a single, mighty pimple you want destroyed overnight, consider using toothpaste to cover the pimple with. Toothpaste contains silica, which is the substance you find in beef jerky bags, used to keep any moisture out of substances. Silica will dry out and diminish the size of the pimple overnight if left on. Try using a natural toothpaste — with silica but without sodium lauryl sulfate. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a harsh chemical that's also an irritant to some people. It's best to avoid it, and any of the big, name-brand toothpastes, for that reason. 5 Use ice to close your pores and reduce inflammation. A lot of people with big pores like to take ice cubes and gently hold or rub them over their problem spots. Ice specifically, and cold in general, constricts the blood vessels underneath the skin, making the irritation or inflammation less noticeable. 6 Use tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is a renowned anti-fungal and antibacterial herbal remedy, making it great for mild to moderate acne. In a study comparing the efficacy of tea tree oil and benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil proved just as effective in fighting acne and reducing lesions. Whereas benzoyl peroxide works quicker than tea tree oil, tea tree oil produces less side effects in patients. 7 Crush up some aspirin and use it as a paste. Crush up a pill or two of aspirin and mix it with just enough water to form a paste — as you might have done with the baking soda. With a Q-Tip or your hands, apply the paste onto individual pimples, leaving to dry. Why does aspirin work? Aspirin has salicylic acid in it, which is what most topical acne treatments use to bust up acne-causing bacteria. Salicylic acid dries out pimples and fights the bacteria simultaneously. 8 Apply alum to the pimples. Potassium alum can usually be found in the spice aisle in some grocery stores. Although widely used as a natural deodorant and styptic (lessens bleeding after a cut), alum is a natural antiseptic and astringent, meaning that it shrinks skin tissue. Try to get a big block instead of in powder form. Powdered alum can be a little too abrasive. Gently wipe the alum over the affected areas, being careful not to irritate or inflame any pimples.  (Nov 15, 2013 | post #13)

Help with Acne treatments

Here are the home remedies for acne: 1. Baking Soda Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate works as a gentle exfoliant for your skin. Thus, it unplugs the pores and removes dead skin. It also helps regulate the pH imbalance of the skin and has mild anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. All these characteristics make it an excellent home remedy for clearing acne. Mix together two tablespoons baking soda, one teaspoon cinnamon powder, the juice of half a lemon, and five tablespoons honey. Apply it on your face and wash after 5 minutes. You can also apply a paste of one or two teaspoons of baking soda and a little water. Again, rinse it off after five minutes. Use it once or twice a week. 2. Oatmeal Oatmeal is beneficial in reducing acne because it cleanses your skin pores and absorbs excess oil. Plus, it exfoliates your skin. Mix one teaspoon of honey and the juice of half a lemon in a cup of cooked oatmeal. Rub this mixture over your skin. Leave for 30 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. 3. Fuller’s Earth Fuller’s earth also known as multani mitti is good for greasy and acne-prone skin as it absorbs excess oil (without over-drying your skin) and unclogs the pores. It helps improve your complexion too. You can find it at Indian grocery stores. Mix equal proportions of Fuller’s earth (multani mitti), rose water, and sandalwood powder. Apply this mud pack to your face. Wash after it dries up. 4. Lemon Juice The acidic property of lemons can be very useful in treating acne. Lemon will clean out dirt that has accumulated in the pores and will harden the sebum. Rub a slice of lemon on the affected area and leave it for a few hours before rinsing your face with water. You can also mix lemon juice with rose water in equal amounts and use the solution to wash the affected area thoroughly. 5. Toothpaste The toothpaste that you use regularly to clean your teeth can also help clear up an acne problem. This is in fact one of the easiest home remedies for acne. Apply a small amount of toothpaste on the affected area before going to bed. The toothpaste will reduce the swelling and dry out the acne. Within a day or two, you should see significant improvement. 6. Tree Tea Oil Another popular natural treatment for acne is tea tree oil. Tea tree oil acts like an antiseptic and this can help remove damaged skin cells by slightly irritating the skin. When tea tree oil is applied on the affected skin, it produces bacteria-fighting cells. Just apply one drop of tree tea oil to the affected area three times a day.  (Nov 5, 2013 | post #9)

Acne Myths

Acne Myth 1: Adults don’t get acne. Not true. Surveys have found that significant numbers of adults are still getting acne into their 30s, 40s, and even 50s. Acne may look different when you’re 36 than it did when you were 16 -- it’s more likely to be reddish nodules around your mouth and jaw, rather than whiteheads and blackheads scattered all over your forehead, nose, and cheeks -- but it’s acne all the same. Acne Myth 2: Eating chocolate and drinking soda gives you acne. “The diet controversy over acne goes on,” says Amy Derick, MD, FAAD, a dermatologist in Great Barrington, Ill. “The idea that chocolate and caffeine cause acne has never really panned out.” Some studies have suggested that milk products might influence acne, because of the presence of hormones and bacteria in the milk. “But the data isn’t that strong, and I don’t want to recommend that 30-year-old women cut out milk when they need it for their bone health.” Acne Myth 3: Stress causes acne. This myth may have some basis in reality, but it’s hard to quantify. “Some studies have found that college students have increased breakouts during finals, but it’s hard to be sure if it’s causative,” Derick says. Not all students with acne have increased breakouts during stressful times. "So maybe stress does play a role, but we haven't seen any good studies showing that stress hormones make acne worse." Acne Myth 4: Don’t wear sunscreen, it will aggravate your acne. You just have to pick the right sunscreen. Chemical sunscreens, like Helioplex, dissipate UV light using a chemical reaction, which may cause heat bumps. If you’re prone to acne, use a physical sunscreen like zinc oxide instead. Acne Myth 5: You have acne because you’re not washing enough. Unless you’re a slob, that’s probably not true. “Studies in teens show that washing your face twice a day is more effective than just once, but more than that isn’t necessary and can dry out your skin,” Derick says. “Cleansers are only on your skin for five seconds. Leave-on products like retinoid creams are more efficacious.”  (Nov 1, 2013 | post #7)
