Making dietary changes is your first line of defense in treating hypothyroidism. 1. Greatly reduce or eliminate caffeine and sugar, including refined carbohydrates like flour, which the body treats like sugar. 2. Up the protein - Protein transports thyroid hormone to all your tissues and enjoying it at each meal can help normalize thyroid function. Proteins include nuts and nut butters; hormone- and antibiotic-free animal products and legumes. 3. Get fat - Fat is your friend and cholesterol is the precursor to hormonal pathways; if you?re getting insufficient fat and cholesterol, you could be exacerbating hormonal imbalance, which includes thyroid hormones. Natural, healthful fats include olive oil; ghee; avocados; flax seeds; fish; nuts and nut butters; hormone- and antibiotic-free full fat cheese, yogurt, and cottage cheese (yes, full fat, not skim); and coconut milk products 4. Nutrient-up - While nutritional deficiencies may not be the cause of hypothyroidism, not having enough of these micronutrients and minerals can aggravate symptoms: vitamin D, iron, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, zinc, copper, vitamin A, the B vitamins, and iodine 5. Go gluten-free - The molecular composition of thyroid tissue is almost identical to that of gluten. So for those with Hashimoto?s, it?s a case of mistaken identity. Eating gluten can increase the autoimmune attack on your thyroid. 6. Be mindful of goitrogens - goitrogens are foods that can interfere with thyroid function. Goitrogens include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, strawberries, peaches, peanuts, radishes, and soybeans 7. Look at your stressors and practice relaxation. The thyroid is a very sensitive gland and is exceptionally reactive to the stress response. Besides this, do work out and if you want homeopathic medicine, then do contact us.

4 Ayurvedic Remedies For Constipation Caused By Eating Junk Food!

4 Ayurvedic Remedies For Constipation Caused By Eating Junk Food!

Junk food is nothing but junk with no nutritional value. While it undoubtedly is lip smacking, but costs us our health without we knowing we are falling into an unhealthy trap.

It is somehow wrong to say say we don't know what it does to our health, but we just tend to ignore. The junk food that we prefer to eat contains lots of salt, fat and artificial chemicals and now a days, more and more processed foods are finding their way into our refrigerators as they can just be picked up and eaten anytime hunger pangs are felt.

Refined flour, white sugar, cheese, canned juices, frozen foods, cheese laden pizzas and breads are all yummy, but not something that is readily accepted and digested by your stomach. The most common problem they lead to is constipation as digestive organs find it increasingly difficult to digest them.

While it is advisable to stay away from junk foods or at least not have them very frequently, if its consumption has caused you constipation and you'are looking for ways to find relief, here are some quick ayurvedic remedies for you:

  1. Aloe vera: Besides acting as a remedy for minor burns and cuts, aloe vera gel also helps soothe your stomach. It functions as a natural laxative by making your stool softer. Moreover, it aids in protein digestion and makes the muscular structure of your intestines stronger, consequently providing relief from constipation. Have 2 tablespoons of aloe gel in morning by mixing it with your glass of fruit juice, or consume 1 cup of aloe vera juice.
  2. Castor oil: Castor oil is often referred to as a stimulant laxative and is a very useful remedy for constipation. Castor oil enables smooth movement and functioning of the intestines, making it easier for stool to pass. Drink 1 to 2 teaspoons of castor oil on an empty stomach. It takes about 8 hours to show its effect, so decide which time of the day will be suitable for you to consume it.
  3. Coconut Oil and Flaxseed: Coconut oil is a wonderful hydrating agent and eases stools. Flaxseeds help in the elimination of toxins, excess fat and cholesterol from the body. So in one tablespoon of coconut oil, add half a teaspoon of flaxseeds, chew well and eat this in morning.
  4. Baking Powder: Baking powder has an alkalizing effect and eases movement through the bowels. Add a teaspoon to 1/4 cup of warm water and drink it quickly for best results. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How L-Arginine Can Help Protect a Healthy Penis?

How L-Arginine Can Help Protect a Healthy Penis?


When a man is angling for the best possible penis care, he will often try a variety of methods and regimens before he settles on something that works for him. Part of that regimen should always be a good penis health crème. But how to choose the right crème when there are so many out there? A guy can do the best job in choosing a crème through looking at the ingredients. They should be all-natural ingredients filled with vitamins, minerals and amino acids, all of which aid in creating healthy penis skin. One of those very important ingredients is L-Arginine.

What is L-Arginine?

L-Arginine is a powerful amino acid the body needs for many functions. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein; without them, there are dire long-term consequences. Amino acids provide the body with energy, contribute to neurological function, improve recovery times after injury, keep the immune system ready to fight and help with good cardiovascular health.

L-Arginine plays several important roles in addition to these. It helps the body produce insulin, aids in eliminating waste through the kidneys, and relaxes the blood vessels through the production of nitrous oxide. This relaxing of the vessels allows blood to flow more freely through the body, especially the smaller vessels that feed the kidneys, brain, eyes and of course, the penis.

Related to this are some of the problems that L-Arginine is famous for helping to treat and prevent. Migraines and severe headaches are often relieved by the relaxing of the blood vessels; it does the same for high blood pressure and heart failure. And because it allows more blood to flow freely to the brain, it can play a role in helping to present dementia and other neurological problems.

But what about the penis? As mentioned earlier, those smaller blood vessels in the body need to be relaxed to allow proper blood flow. When the vessels are relaxed, a large influx of blood is easy to handle; that means a man can get and maintain an impressive erection. If the blood vessels are tense, blocked with plaque or otherwise unhealthy, a man might notice a lessening of his erections, taking longer to get hard, or losing the erection at key moments during intimacy. A healthy dose of L-Arginine, inside and out, can help prevent this from happening.

Where to get L-Arginine?

Fortunately, L-Arginine is available in many tasty foods. These include poultry, meat and fish. Dairy products are also loaded with this important amino acid. Vegetarians or vegans can find plenty of L-Arginine in nuts and vegetables. If that's not enough, they can seek out a supplement, much like one that bodybuilders use.

In addition, L-Arginine can be found in a great penis health crème. It's important for a man to choose his crème wisely, as other ingredients might mask the good benefits. For instance, a crème that contains anything he can't pronounce, or a crème that contains fragrances, artificial colors and the like should be avoided at all costs. The only thing the penis needs is natural ingredients, of which L-Arginine is certainly one.

When looking for the best possible penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin), a man should keep a few other things in mind. Another vital animo acid is L-Carnitine, which is great for protecting the peripheral nerves that can enhance penis sensitivity. Vitamin E and Shea butter both pack a hydrating punch; if a crème has both, all the better, because these work synergistically to provide the best results. Vitamin A for odor control, vitamin B5 for better health and vitamins D and C are also great for ensuring a healthy penis. Apply the crème daily and watch the benefits show up over the coming days and weeks!

When Should You Go For Laser Skin Tightening?

When Should You Go For Laser Skin Tightening?

Ageing is an irreversible process of human existence. With ageing, your skin will start to show problems and one of them would be the loosening or sagging of skin. While there are many treatments available to counter this problem, one of the most effective and popular methods is laser skin tightening.

In this method, a focused beam of infrared light is used to heat up the collagen under the skin. This triggers collagen growth resulting in the skin becoming tighter, thus, reduces  sagging, wrinkles, lines and other blemishes in the process.

Who can go for laser skin tightening?

Laser skin tightening is targeted towards both men and women of any age. Most of the candidates who avail of laser skin tightening are within the age range of 30 to 60 years and have common complaints about skin caused due to age. Some of the problems that laser skin tightening can deal with very well are mentioned as follows:

  1. Tightening and repairing loose facial skin
  2. Reducing fine lines all over the body
  3. Reducing wrinkles all over the body

However, you should know that laser skin tightening will not be able to correct loose facial skin if they form jowls or droopy sacs. In such cases you may need to avail of other surgeries, such as a face lift to correct the laxity of facial skin. You can then follow it up with laser skin tightening to eliminate the remaining wrinkles or lines.

Which of the areas of the body can be treated by laser skin tightening?

This form of treatment has been found to be very effective with skin from all over the body. Some of the areas which can be treated are

  1. Abdomen
  2. Legs
  3. Arms
  4. Face
  5. Buttocks
  6. Neck among others

Laser skin tightening can treat even moderate amount of laxity in all of these areas, thus reducing the need to go for more invasive types of surgery such as tummy tuck surgery or even liposuction.

When would laser skin tightening not be applicable?

Laser skin tightening is a very commonly availed procedure all around the world and there are very few risks usually associated with it. However, it is not advisable in certain circumstances:

  1. If one is prone to having herpes outbreaks
  2. If anyone has suffered or is currently suffering from skin cancer
  3. It is not recommended for pregnant women either

Hair fall and Skin Rejuvenation - PRP For It!

Hair fall and Skin Rejuvenation - PRP For It!

PRP is a latest, state of the art technology that employs non-surgical methods to stimulate hair growth in case of hair loss.

Advancements in research have enabled scientists to make new inroads in the field of wound and tissue healing. The result of these researches is PRP, which is a natural way to rejuvenate your scalp, skin and stimulate your hair growth.

How does PRP Work?

The presence of mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products in human blood contain specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. PRP has been used to heal skin and wounds for over two decades now. Apart from this, it finds use in oral surgery, cosmetic surgery and neurosurgery as well. It is also the promising treatment to promote hair growth.

Benefits:

  • It is a progressive healing treatment that doesn't require surgery.
  • Simple, rapid and highly effective system.
  • Autologous (from patient's own blood).
  • The system is biocompatible and xeno-free, so there shouldn't be any safety concerns.
  • An increase in the concentration of platelets can be observed.
  • It helps in the elimination of undesired erythrocytes, which significantly decrease the fibroblast proliferation.
  • Contains growth factors that help in the stimulation of growth of the hair follicles.
  • Can be performed preoperatively, intraoperatively, or post operatively.

PRP Facial (Vampire Facial)
The vampire facial involves topical application of the PRP combined with aeration of the skin with Micro Needling. The platelet-derived growth factors stimulate a healing response that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture. PRP naturally improves all aspects of skin health:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin’s texture and tone
  • Naturally increases collagen production
  • Pore refinement
  • Creates a natural glow
  • Reduces acne scars

PRP Hair Restoration
PRP Hair Restoration is a non-surgical solution for hair loss in both men and women. Platelet Rich Plasma contains growth factors that naturally stimulate the development of new hair follicles while improving the health of existing hair follicles.

What to expect:
First, a blood sample is obtained and processed to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma. A topical anesthetic is applied to numb the area being treated. The PRP is then administered with a fine needle in a series of injections on the scalp.

Mild swelling and redness can be expected 1-2 days following the treatment. It is recommended to avoid vigorous activity until the swelling has subsided. There is no other downtime following the procedure. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.

Who should Not Have PRP treatment?

Those with heavy drug and smoking issue should avoid PRP. Also, those who drink a lot of alcohol should avoid PRP. Those suffering from platelets related ailments, sepsis, chronic liver disease, thrombocytopenia, hyperfibrinogenemia, systemic disorders and cancer should also stay away from PRP.

Conclusion

At length, PRP is a boon for all those who aren't fans of surgery or the ones who prefer a more aggressive but non-surgical approach for treatment to their ailments. The results might vary from patient to patient, but it is certainly one of the most promising technologies to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate your skin, and the results are quite convincing. So decide wisely!

Paleo Diet

Paleo Diet

The paleo diet definition is simple: eat only foods that were available to our hunter and gatherer ancestors thousands of years ago during the paleolithic age. This means that things like processed foods, refined grains and cereals are off the table, and instead your plate should be full of fruits and vegetables, meats, nuts and seeds.

The idea is that these are the foods that our bodies were designed to eat while many of the heavily processed modern foods that fill our diets today contribute to chronic disease and health problems. Proponents of the diet suggest that a well-planned paleo diet could lead to improvements in many aspects of health, such as enhanced weight loss and reduced inflammation.

Because it is essentially a grain-free diet, it tends to be lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fat than some other diets. However, it also eliminates several food groups that contain beneficial nutrients, such as legumes and dairy, which has made this diet a subject of much debate among experts.

6 paleo diet benefits

  • Promotes weight loss
  • High in protein
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Boosts satiety
  • Corrects nutrient deficiencies
  • Regulates blood sugar

Here is a healthy paleo diet food list with some foods that you should include in your diet:

  • Grass-fed beef
  • Seafood
  • Poultry
  • Fresh fruits
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Heart-healthy unrefined oils, such as olive, coconut, flaxseed, walnut and avocado oil

Here are the foods that you should avoid while following a paleo diet plan:

  • Legumes (including beans and peanuts)
  • Dairy
  • Refined sugar
  • Refined vegetable oils
  • Processed/junk food
  • White potatoes
  • Cereal grains

Sugar-sweetened or caffeinated beverages

Sensible indulgences

These are perfectly healthy in small amounts:

Wine: quality red wine is high in antioxidants and beneficial nutrients.

Dark chocolate: choose one that has 70% or higher cocoa content. Quality dark chocolate is very nutritious and extremely healthy.

What to drink when you're thirsty

When it comes to hydration, water should be your go-to beverage.

These aren't exactly paleo, but most people drink them anyway:

Tea is very healthy and loaded with antioxidants and various beneficial compounds. Green tea is best.
Coffee is actually very high in antioxidants as well. Studies show that it has many health benefits

How to make your restaurant meals paleo

It is not very difficult to make most restaurant meals paleo friendly.

Order a meat or fish-based main dish.
Get extra vegetables instead of bread or rice.
Ask them to cook your food in olive oil or coconut oil.

Simple paleo snacks

There really is no need to eat more than 3 meals per day, but if you get hungry then here are some paleo snacks that are simple and easily portable:

  • Baby carrots.
  • Hard boiled eggs.
  • A piece of fruit.
  • A handful of nuts.
  • Leftovers from the night before.
  • Apple slices with some almond butter.
  • A bowl of berries with some coconut cream.
  • Homemade beef jerky.

Paleo diet drawbacks:

1. Restricts some nutrient dense foods

2. Allows pork, shrimps and other oft - contaminated food sources

3. Excessive consumption of certain meats can have adverse effects.
