THE BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF ALOE

CERTIFICATION IN BACH FLOWER REMEDIES OF ENGLAND, Ph.D DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY IN BIOCHEMISTRY, B.S.M.S BACHELOR OF SIDDHA MEDICINE AND SURGERY,
Alternative Medicine Specialist,
THE BENEFICIAL EFFECTS  OF ALOE
Aloe was one of the most frequently prescribed medicines throughout most of the 18th and 19th centuries and it remains one of the most commonly used herbs in india today. However, oral use of aloe for constipation is no longer recommended, as it can have severe side effects.

Burns
Aloe gel, made from the central part of the aloe leaf, is a common household remedy for minor cuts and burns, as well as sunburns. It can be found in many commercial skin lotions and cosmetics. Aloe contains active compounds that may reduce pain and inflammation and stimulate skin growth and repair. Aloe is best used for minor burns and skin irritations and should never be applied to an open wound.

Herpes and skin conditions
Preliminary evidence suggests that aloe gel may improve symptoms of genital herpes and certain skin conditions such as psoriasis.

Constipation
Aloe juice or aloe latex, a yellow, bitter liquid derived from the skin of the aloe leaf, is a powerful laxative. However, it can cause painful cramping and is not safe to use in this way.

Dental cavities
Studies show that aloe vera gel inhibits the activity of several types of bacteria that may lead to cavities and gum disease. More research is needed.

Diabetes
Preliminary studies suggest that aloe juice may help lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 (adult onset) diabetes. More research is needed to determine whether aloe is helpful for diabetes.

Alcohol-induced liver disease
Preliminary studies suggest that aloe vera extract may help mitigate the effects of alcohol-induced liver damage.

Available forms
You can get aloe by simply breaking off leaves of the plant (which can be grown as a houseplant), but it is also available commercially in ointments, creams, and lotions. Aloe gel is often included in cosmetic and over-the-counter skin care products as well. You can purchase aloe in the form of capsules, tablets, juice, gel, ointment, cream, and lotion.

Aloe gel is considered safe when applied to the surface of the skin, but should not be applied to open or deep wounds. In rare cases, it may cause an allergic reaction, mainly a skin rash. If you develop a rash, stop using the gel.

Taking aloe latex orally may cause severe intestinal cramps or diarrhea and is not recommended. Pregnant women should never take aloe latex because it may cause uterine contractions and trigger miscarriage. Nursing mothers should not take aloe latex either because the effects and safety for infants and children are not known. High doses of aloe can cause kidney damage.

Of course it will affect your baby. Your baby will be reactive to all your feelings and actions. Anything that affects the mother has a direct bearing on the well being of the unborn child. Talk to your husband and gynecologist to find ways of sorting out the problems at home and finding some peace for the sake of the child. If you are happy, the child will also experience it and will feel good. Get excited, learn all about child rearing and get some special information from your gynecologist to foster good feelings. Every thought and feeling that you go through is communicated to the child and that child must feel wanted and awaited with all the excitement possible. That is your responsibility. Meet with a counselor to discuss the family situation and if necessary you could move to a separate home and live peacefully. Even if it a temporary arrangement, it is worth it.

5 uncommon ways to live longer

 

Things such as exercise, a healthy diet are a great way to live longer. However, there are certain uncommon strategies that you could incorporate in extending your lifespan.

 

Things such as exercise, a healthy diet are a great way to live longer. However, there are certain uncommon strategies that you could incorporate in extending your lifespan. Here are 5 tips to help:

 

Alcohol: Scientific studies showed that moderate drinking is linked to low mortality rate, while a lack of alcohol totally raises a person’s risk of dying. The study also showed that mortality rates among people who don’t drink alcohol are actually higher than those of hardcore alcoholics. However, moderation and red wine are important.

 

Sex: Scientific Study has shown that sexual activity has a “protective effect” on health. Though the study features additional evidence to support the idea that women benefit from more frequent encounters, also. The study further shows that men who achieve frequent orgasms can raise life expectancy by 3-8 years and lower mortality risk by about 50 percent.

 

Shopping: A study discovered that shopping regularly decreases mortality rates for men and women. This doesn’t mean you should spend carelessly. The benefits of shopping have to do with walking and socialising

 

Laughter: Norwegian scientists have disclosed that those who inject humor into their lives can increase their lifespans by as much as 8 years. Moderate laughter aids in keeping blood vessels elastic. Hysterical laughter can over-exert the body’s organs, which can accelerate certain health conditions or biological defects.

 

Love the curve: women with larger hips, bottoms and thighs have a lower risk for heart and metabolic diseases. Apparently, when fat lives in the hips and derriere, it helps absorb fatty acids that can lead to the arteries being clogged

It needs her examination to decide. Two natural conditions are first or initial intercourse and menstruation time.

Hi the problem aid pcos is irregular periods due to ovulation not happening. But there can be a random ovulation and the possibility of pregnancy is always there. So if yu hv misd yur period you cud definitely first check by doing a home pregnancy kit test. Dryness of vagina is a very common symptom in patients wid cos. Do not worry about that. As far as conception is concerned. Do not worry. Have yu done any tests for you and your husband. Pls let me know. We can discuss further.

The cause for underweight baby not only depend on amount of the food consumed during pregnancy. Along with good number of medical cause it also depend on occupational-physical-mental stress during pregnancy. Environmental factors also play important role in the growth of the baby. Nothing to worry try to come out from current stress at the earliest and plan pregnancy minimum of 6month gap. Be hopeful. God bless you.

Coz last I had sex 2 mnth ago with my x and now after 8 day I am going to have sex with my wife. So is it safe to have unprotected sex.

It is obvious you are engaging in unsafe sex with your cousins. Oral sex will protect the female partners from getting pregnant, so that way it is safe, provided you are not having vaginal sex with them. Semen gets metabolised in the salivary and gastric secretions so there no sequelae to it. But having multiple partners does put every one at risk of acquiring infections.

Unprotected intercourse increases the risk of HIV transmission only if your partner has HIV. And you can find if your partner is suffering from HIV by asking her to get tested.
