Meningitis symptoms

Meningitis generally refers to a health condition that involves inflammation of the lining supporting and surrounding the brain and the spinal cord. It is a very serious health condition that needs to be treated by a doctor as soon as possible.

The meningitis symptoms include high fever, skin rashes and infected ears, nose and throat among others. Although meningitis calls for professional advice, there are still natural remedies that you can do to help tone down or alleviate the meningitis symptoms – especially high fever.

Here are a few of them.

If the person suffering from meningitis is having a high fever – which is pretty much likely – give the person a cold compress. The cold compress helps bring down the patient’s body temperature.

All that is needed to be done is to secure a cold pack. If you can’t find any, you can make one yourself by placing ice cubes in a plastic container.

Make sure to wrap the plastic container in a towel before you apply it to the patient’s body. You can apply it to the forehead or head area and also to the whole body.

Just make sure to change the cold pack every three hours and to have hot water bottles by the patient’s feet and body side.

Another way to lower down body temperature is for the patient to drink plenty of fluids – water, diluted orange juice or unsweetened lemon water.

You may also add in garlic to water, fruit juices and other liquid food that you will be feeding the patient. Garlic has been known to be significant in treating meningitis.

  • Keep up with your calcium intake! As opposed to salt, calcium may help in keeping the sodium and water balance in your body. You can take supplements but it is more effective to obtain calcium from food sources like milk and dairy products.
  • Include garlic in your diet. Garlic is said to have an inherent ability to lower blood pressure. You can eat fresh garlic cloves or pound some mixed in water.

3 Easy Ways of Natural Acne Treatment

Natural acne treatment

Natural acne treatment

Having acne can be very inconvenient – not to mention a big dab at your self confidence. It is then a big relief that the skin industry has done loads of research in trying to address this seemingly non-teenager-exclusive skin problem.

Nowadays, lots of skin products commercially available are developed specifically for acne problems. These skin products come in different forms – including spot on treatments, facial washes, facial scrubs, creams and gels.

Although the skin industry has made it quite possible for people nowadays to get rid of acne, going natural acne treatment is still the most preferred option. Here are three home remedies for acne that have been tested and proven!

  • Toothpaste

Toothpaste is one of the oldest and most classic home remedy for acne. It is used as a spot on remedy. Apply plain (avoid whitening, tartar control, etc.) toothpaste to your pimple. Do not apply on areas of the skin without pimples as it can cause dryness, itching and a burning sensation. Always remember that toothpaste contains an active ingredient which is sulfur.

  • Garlic

Garlic, like toothpaste, also contains sulfur and is also an effective treatment for acne. However, unlike toothpaste, garlic is not for external application but should be ingested. The main drawback of this home remedy is that eating raw garlic is not a very pleasant experience.

  • Lemon Juice

Fresh lemon juice applied to acne works best as it dries it out and helps it fade quickly. It also has bleaching effects, making your skin tone lighter than before. You can also drink fresh lemon juice if you find applying it onto your skin quite risky. External application of fresh lemon juice can initially make your skin feel itchy and you’ll also experience a burning sensation.

Lose Appetite of dogs

Lose Appetite of dogs

Having a very picky eater can be a huge problem – especially if you have spent a bit much trying to switch from one brand of dog food to another. More importantly, dogs without appetite are at risk for more health problems like being underweight and developing nutritional deficiencies.

Loss of appetites in dogs can be caused by various factors.

It can be due to the environment like if you have moved to a new residence or you have taken in a new dog perhaps. Any change in the normal environment can bring stress to your dogs in one way or another thereby affecting their appetites.

Your dog’s loss of appetite can also be due to an underlying health problem that you may or may not be aware of. Your dog might have digestive problems, bacterial infections and even severe worm infestations.

If you are positive that your dog has not been under any type of stress lately and yet there is loss of appetite, it is best to consult your veterinarian immediately. Otherwise, these two home remedies might be of great help:

Check your dog what cause lose appetite

  • Serve your dog’s food warm. Warm food releases more aroma and can entice your dog to eat it. If you are feeding your dog commercial kibble, try adding ¼ cup of hot water and mix it thoroughly.  My dog does not seems like to eat cold food when I serve for him directly from dog can food. But after I simply reheat it, he sniffs a while and start to eat without hesitation.
  • Add in some garlic. Yes, it is garlic! Although garlic can be a toxic food item for dogs, it is still acceptable in minimal amounts. Chop fresh garlic and add 1/8 tsp. for dogs weighing less than 15 lbs. and 1/4 tsp. for dogs weighing 15 lbs. and above. This is a daily limit so adjust the amount per meal by dividing it with the number of times you feed your dog each day.

Hope this little tips may help your dog back to normal eating appetite. Let me know if you have better tips, I would like to hear.  Looking for more articles? Please visit my website at Natural Health Care Reviews
