Anemia

Anemia

Anemia is a nutritional deficiency that involves a decrease in blood cell count and the blood’s hemoglobin content. There are various causes for anemia including blood loss and the death and termination of red blood cells.

Anemia can be a threat to your health as it can lead to oxygen deprivation, fatigue or the stopping of bodily functions. It is quite difficult to prevent anemia but it can be highly avoided by eating iron rich foods like green leafy vegetables, liver, dried fruits, breads and pastas. There are also some home remedies that might help treat anemia.

Acpuncture

Acpuncture

Acupuncture has been around for a thousand of years already. It originated in China and has spread rapidly to Western Europe, the United States of America and even to Canada. Acupuncture is a process that involves having to insert very thin needles onto your skin.

Usually, practitioners of acupuncture insert needles in the back, on the face or to any other body part that somehow needs relief. The insertion of the needle can vary greatly in depths and the needle also varies in size. Acupuncture is said to have therapeutic effects like pain alleviation and relief from nausea.

Practitioners and patients of acupuncture have claimed numerous health benefits although no scientific study has yet proven the validity of such claims. Some of the health benefits are the following:

The Dangers of Lipstick: Possible Lead Content

Lead is found in lipsticks can cause cancer

Lead is found in lipsticks can cause cancer

I came across an article today, saying that in the year 2003, several females were on high alert due to a certain terrifying email.

The contents of the email were highly troubling not only to females but to everyone who wears lipsticks.

The email said that most of the popular lipstick brands like Christian Dior, Lancome, Clinique, Yves Saint Laurent, Estee Lauder, Shiseido, Red Earth (Lip Gloss), Chanel (Lip Conditioner) contained traces of lead that can cause cancer.

This email has been found to be highly flawed and is deemed a hoax – resulting only in false alarm and a bad reputation for the brands mentioned.

Although the email content is highly flawed – most especially in terms of reference to such popular brands, it is quite true that lead can be lethal to humans.

Lead is a dangerous substance to humans – causing numerous deterioration of health. Side effects include behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures and even death.

It is generally a neurotoxin and can lead to health cases such as miscarriages (for pregnant women), infertility, brain damage and even cancer.

Lead has been found to be present in various household items most especially in paints, solders in plumbing joints and some are also found in children’s toys.

Finding lead in the cosmetic products that one uses on his or her face, especially on the lips is highly frightening. From absorption to ingestion, lead can make its way into your body in various ways.

In the year 2007, the US Food and Drug Administration said that even though there are small amounts or traces of lead in lipstick, it is unlikely to cause cancer.

Homemade hair moisturizer ingredients

Hair moisturizers do not necessarily have to be purchased from the shelves. You can make your very own hair moisturizer at home using ingredients from the kitchen and the cupboard.

  • Honey Hair Moisturizer

Combine half a cup of honey and 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Apply the mixture onto your damp hair and massage. Leave the honey and olive oil mixture on your hair for about 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

You can also replace olive oil with other natural substances and food products that are high in protein like egg yolk or avocado. This can be used once a month for extremely damaged and sun dried hair.

  • Avocado Hair Moisturizer

Cut avocado into half and use one half of it for this recipe. Simply mash half of the avocado and combine it with 1 to 2 tablespoons of egg yolk, mayonnaise or sour cream. Massage the mixture onto damp hair and let sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse it off with water and repeat this natural treatment after two weeks.

    How to get shiny hair just like this?

Open a can or a bottle of beer and measure 1/2 cup of it. To make the beer flat (less carbonated), let it sit for about 2 hours. After 2 hours, add in 1 teaspoon of canola oil or sunflower oil and one raw egg.

Mix the three ingredients thoroughly and apply it onto damp hair. Let it sit for around 15 minutes and rinse off. Make sure to use cool or room temperature water when rinsing so as not to cook the raw egg.
