It’s no secret that sugar is bad for our health, and yet, it’s not so easy for some of us to give it up just like that. The problem with foods and drinks with too much added sugar (not the naturally occurring sugar in fruits and dairy) is that while they’re highly caloric they don’t have nutritional value. Translation: it isn’t a lasting source of energy.
Do you often feel bloated and uncomfortable? Do you feel like you don’t defecate as much as you should? Don’t be embarrassed. There are plenty of people who deal with constipation on a regular basis. Women are usually the most frequent constipation suffers which may be a result of the slower movement of food through a woman’s intestines, as well as the effects of female hormones on the Gl tract. If you are constipated, it’s usually because there is not enough water in your stool, which is an issue that happens when you don’t drink enough fluids.

Also, the feces are small, dry and hard, making them painful and difficult to pass. Read More →

Do you snore? Did you know that it can be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea? It is a disorder that disturbs the way you breathe while sleeping. It is a result of the collapse of the airway in the throat during sleep and causes loud snoring and periodic pauses in breathing. This causes you to spend more time in light sleep and less time in the deep, restorative sleep, which is what you need to be energetic and productive the next day.
One of the most common long-lasting joint conditions is definitely osteoarthritis. A joint is where two bones come together. The ends of these bones are covered with protective tissue known as cartilage. With osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down, causing the bones to rub against each other, causing a lot of pain. This is a condition that usually affects older people, although it can affect people of any age as well. Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis, degenerative joint disease and wear-and-tear arthritis.

Harsh chemicals in synthetic creams, foaming cleansers, and lotions strip your skin’s natural oil and make dry skin even drier. For this very reason, your skincare for dry skin should include nothing but natural products that will help restore your skin’s shine and smoothness. These products do not contain any chemicals, artificial colours and fragrances, no mineral oils, parabens, and other harmful ingredients. Rosehip oil and vitamin C are the most common natural ingredients in these products as they provide both long and short-term hydration and skin radiance. Camellia and essential fatty acids are other ingredients that revitalise distressed and dehydrated skin, making you feel more radiant and rejuvenated.
