Treat Toenail Fungus

A group of fungi called dermatophytes love humidity. They flourish in damp areas of your body that includes your toenails. When you wear dirty socks and shoes for long periods of time and use public showers and swimming pools barefoot on a regular basis, these fungi begin to flourish on your nails. There are other factors such as weakened immunity, injury to nails, dermatological problems and diabetes that make you prone to the infection.

Signs and Symptoms of Fungal Nail Infection

The most distressing symptom of the infection is not pain but the social stigma it carries. When the fungi colony grows, the following signs and symptoms occur:

  • The infected nail appears grossly thick and coarse with a white, black, yellow or green discoloration.
  • Within a few weeks, nails become very brittle and even break off completely.
  • Adjacent skin becomes inflamed, itchy and painful.
  • Foul odor
  • Psychological trauma
  • How to Tackle the Fungal Infection

Today we will tell you a bunch of tried and tested treatment options and nail fungus medicine that will help you cure the fungal infection beyond doubt.

Ketogenic Diet Helps Squash Migraines

Decreased Migraine Frequency

In recent studies, scientists have found that the ketogenic diet significantly reduced the frequency of migraines in 90% of patients. This completely dwarfs the effects of migraine drugs.

Glutamate Inhibition

Glutamate is found in both epilepsy and migraine patients. Medications that work in epilepsy (anti-seizure drugs) also block glutamate production. These drugs have been used to treat migraines as well. Since about 500 BC, ketones have worked to help prevent seizures, but the ketogenic diet has only been popular for the last century.

Processed Food

I have said many times that processed foods are bad for you, especially if you suffer with migraine. “Food-like products” are filled with preservatives, chemicals, and other triggers that could be affecting your migraine symptoms. Any diet that removes those processed foods, including the ketogenic diet, would be a good step to controlling migraine symptoms.

Saturated Fats

Several studies have debunked the great saturated fat myth. There are plenty of saturated fats (and other healthy fats) in a ketogenic diet, which has been found to reduce bad cholesterol and help the body produce serotonin and vitamin D, both of which help prevent migraines.

Consider Before Using Invisalign

Pain

Knowing how to handle the pain caused by the aligners is imperative. Some patients complain of pain after fixing the clear aligners. This is normally caused by the sharp edges of the aligners. It is advisable to report the pain to the dentists. The dentists will file the sharp and rough edges of the aligners to smoothen them. However, most patients solve the problem on their own by using wax to cover the sharp edges. This is an effective means of reducing the pain.

Results

The clear aligners will only be beneficial if they provide positive results. However, it is important to know how long it will bring those results. For most individuals, it does not take long before results are seen. A majority of the people obtained better results after 2 or 3 months. However, it will not exceed a year. Knowing the duration of the treatment will enable users to be committed when wearing the braces. Apart from that, both the dentists can determine the effectiveness of the aligners using time.

Is it the perfect solution?

The clear aligners are not capable of solving every misalignment problem. The dentist or

Removing Nasal Polyps Naturally

What are Nasal Polyps?

So what are nasal polyps anyway? Well they are abnormal tissue growths that develop in the nose. They vary in size and can be pink, gray or yellow in color. For the most part they have a teardrop shape. These growths of course are what made breathing through my nose hard to do.

What are the Symptoms?

Symptoms of nasal polyps include loss of smell, loss of taste, runny nose, facial pain and your significant other’s most trouble symptom of yours, snoring.

Who is at Risk for This Condition?

Basically anyone can suffer from this condition. However most people who develop the condition have had many sinus infections, chronic sinusitis and sinus irritation.

Remove Nasal Polyps Naturally

Sometimes people will undergo surgery to remove their polyps. However, surgery can take longer to recover from and as with any surgery is always more risky than a natural remedy.

The good thing about treating this troublesome condition is that you can remove nasal polyps naturally. That means without surgery and without the pain of going under a knife.

Below are some methods to treat these nasty little

Composition of a Tooth

Tooth Enamel

The part of the teeth you’re most familiar with is the tooth enamel. This is the hard, translucent, outer covering of the tooth. It is this part of the tooth that cavities can destroy and leave the tooth vulnerable to further decay and disease. The enamel is said to be the hardest and most mineral-packed substance of the body. Tooth enamel is made up of mostly minerals, with some organic compounds and water. The enamel is the thickest (and strongest) at the cusp of the tooth and is weakest along the tooth edges.

As we age, the years of use, abuse and wear and tear, the enamel slowly wears off in what is called attrition.

What is enamel made of? Crystalline calcium phosphate called hydroxyapatite accounts for most of the minerals found in tooth enamel. These minerals give teeth their strength, as well as their brittleness. Enamel also doesn’t contain collagen like other parts of the tooth. Tuftelins, ameloblastsins, ameloblenins and enamelins are proteins that help develop enamel.

Dentin

Underneath the enamel is a porous, yellowish material called dentin. It is this material that gives teeth their classic yellow, or preferably

Popular Food Fads

Fruit juices are as good as fresh fruits

Many people prefer to drink fruit juices as compared to eating fresh fruit. Cold juice is a lot more refreshing than eating fruits. However, juicing removes the healthy fiber content of fruits, though it still retains the vitamins and minerals that are present in the fruit. Fiber is an important part of our diet, and helps to keep our cholesterol low and bowels healthy. When possible, opt for fresh fruit rather than fruit juice.

Coconut oil is good for you

This has been a controversial topic for quite sometime now, but things are now getting clearer. It was previously believed that coconut oil is good for you, but there does not appear to be any scientific evidence to support that. In fact, coconut oil is loaded with harmful saturated fats that are responsible for the clogging up of the heart arteries. The American Heart Association issued a statement recently debunking the health benefits of coconut oil, stating that is does more harm than good. When possible, use olive oil or rice bran oil.

Build Muscle Fast

Train For Strength

If you want to build muscle, you must train for strength. A stronger muscle is a bigger muscle because the fibres have to grow to accommodate greater load. If you started out bench pressing 25 kilos, can you imagine how much bigger your chest, shoulders and arms would be if you increased your Bench Press to 100 kilos?

Stick To The Basics

For sure, you will put on size when you apply resistance to a muscle. But not all exercises are created equal. Basic, compound exercises which use different muscle groups build muscle faster than cables, machines or bodyweight training. Lat Pulldowns build your latissimus dorsi muscles, rear shoulders and biceps. But Deadlifts work your legs, glutes, hips, lower back, middle and upper back, traps, rear shoulders, arms and abs.

Eat On Schedule

It is very important to regularly feed your body with valuable nutrients throughout the day and especially the hours after you exercise.

Consuming plenty of protein and carbs within around 30 minutes of your workout will probably make the single biggest difference in your muscle building program.

The reason for this is that this time

Headaches in Children

Scalp, skull, and brain

The brain is housed inside the skull bone. The skin covering the head is called the scalp. Many muscles, nerves, and blood vessels crisscross the thickness of the scalp.

Tension or stress headaches

Emotions, both bad and good, can cause headaches. More commonly, in the case of headaches, bad emotions fire up the muscles of the head and face.

The frontalis muscle stretches over the forehead and the occipitalis covers the back of the head. The temporalis muscle is located on the sides of the head. The masseter muscle is in the cheek area and parts of the trapezius muscle extend to the upper neck.

Nearby nerves pick up noxious tensions from these muscles and transmit them to the pain awareness center of the brain.

Migraine headaches

Unlike a tension headache, which is clearly known to arise from the tightening muscles of the head and neck area, the cause of a migraine headache is still debated. A disturbance of the brain’s biological and physiological elements-hormones, peptides, dilatation and constriction of brain blood vessels-is implicated.

Other causes of headaches

Headaches also often go with many illnesses. Malaria, ear infection, sinus infection, throat infection, runny
