I hope it inspires others as well. They do offer coaches for a fee, but I’m doing it on my own. There are a number of vegetables that contain protein. I have never been good at eating vegetable, but juicing is completely different. It’s like getting Chinese food, or a bowl of vegetable soup, when they’re mixed together it’s a different animal.

And for the lady that has colitis, I have that too. I add cabbage into my juice because it is suppose to be able to heal ulcers.

I guess when you’re in great pain, you hold onto anything that gives you (temporary) pleasure, like Tab, because it’s easier than giving it up. As a person in the movie said, he wasn’t in denial that he had diabetes; he was just in denial that he had to do something about it. I guess that’s been me. I congratulate all of you who have succeeded in quitting your addictions and I hope I will join your ranks quickly.

For Diane Flemming I send my prayers. I wish that any evidence they found later could help her, but I guess as long as people are being paid off to allow these poisons into people it doesn’t seem like it’s possible… but I like to believe anything is possible. I hope she gets her miracle and is released.

As for all these people who are causing harm to people around the globe I wish somehow we could find a way to stop them. Either way I believe in Karma, and I’m so thankful I don’t have theirs. We need government leaders that refuse payoffs/job opportunities, and will follow the laws they make to protect the public.

Thank you all for sharing, it is so appreciated and helpful.

Regardless of age, a woman's hormones all work together like a symphony; if one part of the orchestra is not functioning properly, then the melody you produce is out of tune. Signs of hormonal imbalance in women are a very real quality of life issue. All women need to be aware these signs of hormone imbalance.

Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies.

Even when only one unbalanced hormone is present, it may result in the following hormonal imbalance symptoms in women.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women:

That beautiful, tuned melody that we look for is your optimal health, free from premenopause symptoms and menopausal symptoms. Women with balanced hormones integrated with proper nutrition and fitness can have a better quality of life as they age.

The flu is a respiratory infection that spreads easily. It is caused by the influenza virus.

This virus circulates each year in Québec and elsewhere in the world. In Québec, it mostly spreads during the end of the fall to the beginning of the spring.

The duration of the flu season may vary. As such, it may start earlier or later and last shorter or longer depending on the year.

Flu symptoms, which appear suddenly, and their severity, can vary depending on age and health condition. The main symptoms are the following:

  • Sudden fever between 39 °C and 40 °C (102 °F and 104 °F)
  • Sudden cough
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Headache

Symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain may also be experienced. These symptoms are most common in children.

Even though signs of heart attack can be subtle in women, the good news is that heart disease is preventable. To better understand your body and risks, schedule an appointment with your health care provider to discuss your history. Try to move around a little more every day as well, since even walking 30 minutes a day can lower the risk of heart attack. If you think you might be having a heart attack, dial 911, sit or lie down, and chew an uncoated aspirin immediately. Even if it turns out not to be a heart attack, it’s better to be prepared. Once a heart attack starts, every minute counts.

The bottom line, says Dr. Daniel: Don’t ignore how you feel. If you know something isn’t right, you can’t expect symptoms to just go away. Even though women often put themselves last after taking care of others, it’s important to pay attention to your body’s signals and trust your instincts. Women may experience warning signs up to a month before an attack, which means they have a valuable internal warning system when something isn’t right. The true trick to preventing a heart attack is taking preventative measures like exercising and eating well, but most of all, listening to your body.

Now that we talked about why you have sugar withdrawals, let’s talk about what the symptoms are. After coming off of sugar over 50 times myself and helping hundreds to the same, I have found that sugar addicts actually have different symptoms when they are coming off of sugar. And I don’t really like to give you a long list of negative things to “expect” because maybe none of these will happen to you, only one of them or a bunch of them. It can be helpful to be kind of prepared though so you don’t think something weird is happening while you are breaking this sugar addiction. Check out this one great tool, a free video that I made for you called The 3 Mistakes Sugar Addicts Make and How to Avoid Them. Here is a list of the sugar withdrawals I personally experienced and those I have seen come off sugar and keep in mind they usually only last for a few days if even that:

  1. Feeling sad or down. I will admit, this is then number one thing I would experience when I would come off sugar. But have hope, it would only last a few days, thank God! That is one thing that really motivated me to stay away from sugar because I hate feeling sad and it started to not be worth it, the trade-off of having sugar to being really down for a few days. For me I know this is a major sugar withdrawal because I do NOT experience sadness on a regular basis, only when I am coming off sugar. Its very important if you struggle with depression already, that you guard yourself against this and make sure are aware of this. The good news is, I have seen many people who struggle with moodiness and depression GREATLY improve when they no longer have a sugar addiction. Personally I think a lot of people who struggle with this would see an improvement when they break the sugar addiction.
  2. Headaches. I personally never had this sugar withdrawal but I have heard some say they do.
  3. Fatigue. If you have been jacked up on sugar all the time, your body is used to that rush but you have also really stressed out your adrenal glands, which can make you more tired. The ironic thing is, since I no longer am a sugar addict if I do have sugar, I am so tired that night, it literally puts me to sleep. I really can’t believe it! And when I wake up the next day, I almost feel hung over I am so tired. I never realized that as much when I ate sugar all the time.
  4. Sleep patterns affected. Remember you are detoxing off a poisonous substance that is toxic so you are going to be detoxing as it gets out of your body. If you were addicted to sugar, your body was all out of whack from having blood sugar spikes to insulin surges and your body needs some time to balance back out.
  5. Sugar cravings. Now this one is the obvious side effect. Once you stop eating sugar, one sugar withdrawal can be ridiculously intense cravings for it. Remember, you may be stopping something that has been a habit of yours for 20 years so give yourself a break! Its normal to crave something that has been a part of your life for so long not only mentally but physically as well. Be encouraged that sugar cravings DO go away.

Take “The Quiz” to self-diagnose whether you even are a sugar addict or not, click here.

One of the most important things about breaking a sugar addiction is learning how to think differently about sugar and how you resist temptation in your life. Because if you get off sugar but don’t know how to stay off it, that is something that can be very frustrating. If you want to check out a free internet seminar I am doing click here or go to http://sugaraddictionspecialist.com/internet-seminar/

Be on the lookout for your own sugar withdrawals and feel free to leave a comment and let us know what yours were so we can all know what to look out for.

Except in patients with a tracheostomy or endotracheal tube, bacterial tracheitis is an uncommon infectious cause of acute upper airway obstruction. It is currently more prevalent than acute epiglottitis in children who have received Haemophilus type B vaccine. Patients may present with crouplike symptoms, such as barking cough, stridor, and fever; however, patients with bacterial tracheitis do not respond to standard croup therapy (racemic epinephrine) and instead require treatment with antibiotics and may experience acute respiratory decompensation. [1, 2, 3]

Bacterial tracheitis is a diffuse inflammatory process of the larynx, trachea, and bronchi with adherent or semiadherent mucopurulent membranes within the trachea. The major site of disease is at the cricoid cartilage level, the narrowest part of the trachea. Acute airway obstruction may develop secondary to subglottic edema and sloughing of epithelial lining or accumulation of mucopurulent membrane within the trachea. Signs and symptoms are usually intermediate between those of epiglottitis and croup. [4, 5]

Bacterial tracheitis may be more common in the pediatric patient because of the size and shape of the subglottic airway. The subglottis is the narrowest portion of the pediatric airway, assuming a funnel-shaped internal dimension. In this smaller airway, relatively little edema can significantly reduce the diameter of the pediatric airway, increasing resistance to airflow and work of breathing. With appropriate airway support and antibiotics, most patients improve within 5 days.

Although the pathogenesis of bacterial tracheitis is unclear, mucosal damage or impairment of local immune mechanisms due to a preceding viral infection, an injury to the trachea from recent intubation, or trauma may predispose the airway to invasive infection with common pyogenic organisms.

Die Influenza-Welle ebbt bereits wieder ab – doch noch immer schnupfen oder husten sich viele Menschen durch die kalte Jahreszeit. Doch wo beginnt eine Grippe – und hört eine Erkältung auf? Und was ist, wenn ich gar kein Fieber habe?

Grundsätzlich gilt: Eine Grippe wird durch Viren ausgelöst und beginnt meist urplötzlich. "Normalerweise fühlt man sich am Morgen noch gesund und hat abends plötzlich 39 oder 40 Grad Fieber", erklärt Infektiologe Peter Walger vom Berufsverband Deutscher Internisten gegenüber der Welt. Viele Betroffene leiden zudem an heftigen Kopf- und Gliederschmerzen sowie Schüttelfrost und fühlen sich zudem elend und schlapp – und das teilweise über Wochen oder sogar Monate. Weitere Symptome sind:

  • Appetitlosigkeit
  • Starke Müdigkeit
  • Hohes Fieber von 38 bis 40 Grad Celsius
  • Muskelschmerzen im ganzen Körper
  • Trockener Husten ohne Schleim
  • Verstopfte oder laufende Nase

Sein Tipp: Besser sofort für ein paar Tage das Bett hüten. Schließlich ist mit Influenza nicht zu spaßen – und ganz wichtig: Nicht das Trinken vergessen. Ärzte raten gesunden Menschen bereits, eineinhalb bis zwei Liter durchschnittlich zu trinken. Wenn Sie allerdings krank sind, sind es nochmal bedeutend mehr. "Bei Fieber kann der Körper schnell zusätzlich zwei Liter Flüssigkeit verlieren", warnt Walger. Viel Wasser und Tee sind hier die beste Wahl.

Zudem rät der Experte, wenn der Schmerz nicht mehr aushaltbar ist, zu Ibuprofen & Co. zu greifen. Doch Vorsicht: Die Dosis macht das Gift. Am besten nur so viel nehmen wie nötig. Von Kombipräparaten rät der Infektiologe allerdings ab: "Bei diesem Mix sind wichtige und unwichtige Einzelwirkstoffe drin, da ist eine richtige Dosierung unmöglich."

Und auch von Antibiotika hält Walger nicht viel: "Antibiotika machen weder bei Erkältungen noch bei Grippe einen Sinn, sie wirken gegen Viren nicht." Sie machen seines Erachtens nur dann Sinn, wenn zusätzlich zu den Viren noch eine bakterielle Infektion kommt. Dann spricht man von einer sogenannten Superinfektion, die den geschwächten Körper zusätzlich belastet.

Erkältung: Ebbt schnell ab - und es droht kein Fieber

Viele Betroffene verwechseln allerdings Grippe und Erkältung miteinander, da sich die Symptome sehr ähneln. Doch eine Erkältung kann bis zu viermal im Jahr auftreten. Auch diese wird durch Viren ausgelöst - allerdings sind es unterschiedliche Virentypen - und auch hier treten Schnupfen, Halsschmerzen und Kopfweh auf.

Doch es gibt einen gravierenden Unterschied: Eine Erkältung beginnt sehr langsam und ebbt meist auch wieder nach ein paar Tagen ab. Zudem "beeinträchtigt sie zwar die Befindlichkeit, aber man ist nicht schwer krank", so Walger. Außerdem ist hierbei das wichtigste Kriterium nicht vorhanden: das Fieber. Das bedeutet konkret: Wer erkältet ist, wird davon glücklicherweise verschont. Wenn Sie allerdings bereits unter hohem Fieber leiden, dann sollten Sie am besten schnell einen Arzt aufsuchen. Das gilt besonders für:

  • Senioren
  • Menschen mit Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen
  • Menschen mit Lungenkrankheiten
  • Diabetiker
  • Menschen mit schwachem Immunsystem
  • Kleinkinder

Wer nicht zur Risikogruppe gehört, aber mit Verdacht auf Grippe zusätzlich unter Atemnot, Kreislaufstörungen oder sogar Schwindel leidet, sollte ebenfalls einen Arzt aufsuchen. Das gilt übrigens auch für diejenigen, die eine langanhaltende Erkältung plagt oder nach ein paar Tagen ein neuer Schub kommt. Schließlich könnte sich dahinter sogar eine Lungenentzündung verbergen. Doch auch andere Organe könnten betroffen sein:

Studie überrascht: Jeder fünfte Grippe-Infizierte zeigt gar keine Symptome

Dagegen erstaunt eine Studie des Lancet Respiratory Medicine von 2014 – die besagt, dass sich während einer Grippewelle jeder Fünfte mit Influenza-Viren ansteckt. Doch jetzt kommt der Hammer: Die meisten wissen es nicht einmal, da sie gar keine Symptome haben. Das Team um Andrew Hayward vom University College London konnte nachweisen, dass es sich sogar um drei Viertel der Infizierten handelt. Daher sollen auch nur einige wenige "Unglückliche" in der Folge zum Arzt gegangen sein.

Und das ist auch richtig so – eine Influenza ist schließlich eine ernstzunehmende Erkrankung, die bei Komplikationen am Ende sogar tödlich enden kann. Daher macht es auch Sinn, dass es gegen die "echte" Grippe eine Impfung gibt – gegen Erkältung nicht. Der Impfstoff unterscheidet sich dabei von Jahr zu Jahr, je nachdem, welche Grippeviren gerade im Umlauf sind.

Being Deficient in Iodine Affects Thyroid Function

Iodine is an essential mineral. It is a non-metal that is only needed in small, trace amounts in the body but it must be present in the right amount.

The primary role of iodine in the body is to serve as one of the ingredients in the syntheses of thyroid hormones.

The two major thyroid hormones are thyroxine or T4 and triiodothyronine or T3.

While T3 contains 3 iodine atoms, T4 contains 4 of them. Therefore, 65% of the molecular weight of T4 is due to iodine but 59% of the weight of T3 is iodine.

Even though iodine is most known as a precursor of thyroid hormones, most of the iodine in the body is actually outside the thyroid gland and the hormones released from it. 70% of the iodine ingested into the body can be found in the tissues of the mammary glands, salivary glands, thymus glands, walls of blood vessels, eyes, cervix and the mucosal surface of the mouth and gastrointestinal tract.

The person who wishes to have a new sober life can achieve that goal at any one of some 45 Narconon centers around the world. After withdrawal, the Narconon program guides each person through an intensive detoxification phase called New Life Detoxification. Through running to get the blood circulating, followed by time in a dry-heat sauna to sweat out the drugs, and good nutirition and adequate sleep, drug residues flush out of the fatty tissues of the body. As traces of drug use are eliminated, participants report that they experience return of alertness and reduction or elimination of cravings for drugs.

As the cravings depart, a person begins to think more clearly. This means that they can begin to address the damage they have done to themselves with their drug abuse. One loses personal integrity and feels guilt over the harm done to loved ones. The ability to say no to drugs is often gone and there are troublesome people in one’s past who could make more trouble in the future. To stay sober, it is necessary to recover one’s self-respect and learn the skills needed to make the correct decision in each situation one encounters.

The later phases of the Narconon program address these necessary skills and recoveries. The Narconon program has no set time limit, but usually takes 8-10 weeks. Each person progresses at their own rate. The program takes as long as necessary for the individual to become free of drugs, discover for themselves why they turned to drugs in the first place, and to learn life skills that empower them to live drug-free. The goal of the program is an individual free of drugs and the desire to take them and living a productive and happy life as a contributing member of society.

Intestinal Parasites Symptoms
The Early Warning Signals

Common Intestinal Parasites Symptoms can be recognized as early warning signs that you've got unwanted visitors. Pay attention to your body when it is sounding out the alarm.

The funny thing about parasites is that they are sneaky. I don't suppose they have a brain that literally plots against us, but they are very clever at mimicking other ailments and are able to go undetected by doctors for many years.

That is one of the reasons that I adopted the practice of cleansing my system on a regular basis to insure that no little microscopic creepy crawlies are able to take up permanent residence in my digestive system.

By keeping my colon healthy, I am able to enjoy a stronger immune system that is more prepared to fight off any visiting bacteria that it encounters.

An intestinal parasite may live in your body without you really knowing about it for several years.

You may not experience any symptoms, or even dismiss them as "just getting older" or "having a hard day."

Some of the most common symptoms of parasitic infection are.

  • watery diarrhea
  • intestinal cramping
  • fever
  • fatigue
  • gas
  • bloating
  • bad breath
  • constipation

    Food poisoning usually occurs as an outbreak with symptoms more or less common among the victims. The severity of the symptoms depends on the contaminant which caused the food poisoning. Diarrhoea in its severity can lead to loss of life and has been one of the leading causes of death worldwide.

    Difference between Flu and Food Poisoning

    Symptoms

    Both the diseases have common symptoms such as nausea, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, vomiting etc. Headache, fatigue and fever are the first to show up. The symptoms are usually mild for healthy individuals and recovery is possible within 48 hours. In severe cases, these mild symptoms lead to dehydration and can become fatal.

    Causative agent

    In case of viral gastroenteritis, the symptoms are caused by viruses whereas in food poisoning, the common agents are bacteria.

    Severity

    Both symptoms appear mild in the outset, but Food poisoning can be quite dangerous in high risk groups such as children and elderly patients. In severe cases of infection it can also lead to death.

    Preventive measure

    These are common for both. Proper cooking and keeping hygienic surrounding lead to a healthy life. Food poisoning is usually caused by improper cooking or contaminated food. This can be minimized by taking enough precautionary measures while cooking.

    Seniors may feel weak and sometimes disoriented without showing other symptoms.

    The flu is often confused with other respiratory infections such as the cold. To learn more, read Differences between Flu and Cold.

    Generally, the flu can be treated at home. In certain cases however, you must see a doctor.

    You should seek medical help the same day if you have flu-like symptoms and also one of the following:

    • Increasing or persistent pain when breathing
    • A rising fever, or one that has lasted for over 5 days

    If symptoms worsen or do not improve after 7 days, you should also consult a doctor the same day.

    You can find a resource near you offering medical consultation on the same or next day. To learn more or to find one of those resources, consult the Finding a Resource Offering Medical Consultation On The Same or Next Day page.

    You must go to emergency immediately if you have flu-like symptoms and also one of the following:

    • Breathing difficulty that persists or worsens
    • Blue lips
    • Intense chest pain
    • Intense headache that persists or worsens
    • Drowsiness, difficulty staying awake, weakness
    • Confusion, disorientation
    • Seizures (body stiffens and muscles contract in a jerky and involuntary manner)
    • No urination for 12 hours, excessive thirst

    If your baby is less than 3 months old and has a fever, bring him or her to emergency immediately.

    If your child has a fever and appears very sick, lacks energy and refuses to play, bring him or her to a doctor immediately, or call Info-Santé 811.

    If you require immediate help to get to emergency, call 9-1-1.

    Some situations require you to be evaluated by a nurse who can offer specific advice regarding your condition. The nurse can also assess whether or not you should see a doctor immediately.

    You should call Info-Santé 811 if you or your child are in one of the following situations:

    • You are short of breath
    • You have difficulty breathing
    • You are unsure whether or not to see a doctor

  • kegunaan lisinopril 5 mg

    Colds usually clear up within 7 to 10 days. See a doctor if:

    • your cold hasn’t improved in about a week
    • you start to run a high fever
    • your fever doesn’t go down

    You could have allergies or a bacterial infection that requires antibiotics, such as sinusitis or strep throat. A nagging cough could also be a sign of asthma or bronchitis.

    There’s an old saying that goes, “We can put a man on the moon, but we still can’t cure the common cold.” While it’s true that doctors haven’t yet developed a vaccine, there are ways to prevent this mild but annoying affliction.

    Because colds spread so easily, the best prevention is avoidance. Stay away from anyone who is sick. Don’t share utensils or any other personal items, such as a toothbrush or towel. Sharing goes both ways — when you’re sick with a cold, stay home.

    Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands often with hot water and soap to get rid of any germs you might have picked up during the day, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Keep your hands away from your nose, eyes, and mouth when they’re not freshly washed. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and always wash your hands afterward.

    Influenza — or the flu, as it’s better known — is another upper respiratory illness. Unlike the cold, which can hit at any time of year, the flu is generally seasonal. Flu season usually runs from fall to spring, peaking during the winter months.

    During flu season, you can catch the flu in the same way you’d pick up a cold: by coming into contact with droplets spread by an infected person. You’re contagious starting 1 day before you get sick and up to 5 to 7 days after you show symptoms.

    The seasonal flu is caused by the influenza A, B, and C viruses, with influenza A and B being the most common types. Active strains of influenza virus vary from year to year. That’s why a new flu vaccine is developed each year.

    Unlike the common cold, the flu can develop into a more serious condition, such as pneumonia. This is especially true for:

    • young children
    • older adults
    • pregnant women
    • people with health conditions that weaken their immune system, such as asthma, heart disease, or diabetes

    In most cases, fluids and rest are the best ways to treat the flu. Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. Over-the-counter decongestants and pain relievers, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen, may control your symptoms and help you feel better. However, never give aspirin to children. It can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called Reye’s syndrome.

    Your doctor may prescribe antiviral drugs — oseltamivir (Tamiflu), zanamivir (Relenza), or peramivir (Rapivab) — to treat the flu. These drugs can shorten the duration of the flu and prevent complications such as pneumonia. However, you need to take them within the first 48 hours of getting sick for them to work.

    If you’re at risk of complications from the flu, call your doctor when you first have symptoms. People at risk of serious complications include:

    • people older than 50 years
    • pregnant women
    • children younger than 2 years
    • those with weakened immune systems due to HIV, steroid treatment, or chemotherapy
    • people with chronic lung or heart conditions
    • people with metabolic disorders, such as diabetes, anemia, or kidney disease
    • people living in long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes

    Contact your doctor right away if your symptoms do not improve or if they become severe. See a doctor if you have signs of pneumonia, including:

    • trouble breathing
    • severe sore throat
    • cough that produces green mucus
    • high, persistent fever
    • chest pain

    Call a doctor right away if a child develops the following symptoms:

    • trouble breathing
    • irritability
    • extreme fatigue
    • refusing to eat or drink
    • trouble waking up or interacting

    The best way to prevent the flu is by getting the flu shot. Most doctors recommend getting the flu vaccine in October, or at the very start of flu season. However, you can still get the vaccine in late fall or winter.

    To avoid picking up the flu virus, wash your hands often with soap and warm water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth. Try to stay away from anyone who has the flu or flu-like symptoms.

    The average person loses 60 to 100 ounces of water a day by the normal bodily functions of breathing, sweating, and urination. This amount may increase or decrease due to the activities performed or the temperature of the environment. Heavy exercise can lead to the loss of more than 60 ounces per hour! To prevent dehydration, simply replenish the liquids that are lost throughout the day. On average, 8 glasses of water a day is needed to totally hydrate the body, but every person is different and only you will know how much water will meet your needs Be aware that water is the best drink, not soda, not juice, not sugar-drinks. Pay close attention to your fluid loss and take special care to replenish it as it is lost. By the time you feel thirst coming on, you are already dehydrated. Attempt to avoid becoming thirsty and be aware of the color of your urine. Dark urine is usually a sign that dehydration had begun. Drink more water, especially infants, children and the elderly.

    Many illnesses and diseases can trigger acute dehydration because of the increase in body temperature that accompanies them. In addition, some may cause profuse sweating which leads to a loss of body fluids. This is the reason physicians and other medical professionals recommend that you drink plenty of fluids when illness sets in.

    The body uses fluids to eliminate toxins, keep joints and muscles flexible and maintain other vital functions. Dehydration can also lead to blood pressure troubles due to the loss of electrolytes and other vital chemicals needed for proper bodily function.

    Suppose you have made the decision to change your diet and improve your health. You understand how the body heals itself and you are more aware of its needs. Yet, you may not have complete faith in your body.

    A splitting headache, chills, nausea, a dripping nose, increased body odor, reappearance of old aches and pains, rashes, boils, drastic weight loss—all the symptoms that can shake the faith of the most sincere health seeker.

    Without proper understanding or support, you could panic at these symptoms and believe your new diet or way of life is the cause of them. You might revert to your old unhealthy practices because you became afraid.

    Thousands of people have experienced the same sort of problems as they improved their health. Books about fasting and dietary changes should be read so that you may feel reassured. Case histories, such as the one below, may help you understand these changes.
