If the discomfort of cystitis (bladder infection) increases, or there is blood or pus when you urinate, see a doctor immediately.

Drink lots of water, cranberry juice and chamomile tea at the first signs of cystitis.

Use one Garlic capsule as a suppository placed up the rectum.

Make an aromatic wash with 3 drops each of Bergamot and Tea Tree in 17 fl oz (500 ml) of boiled, cooled water. Use this frequently as a local wash, making sure that you swab the opening of the urethra.

Make a hot compress using Bergamot, Chamomile and Sandalwood and place it over the abdomen, repeating as the compress cools.

To help prevent cystitis, take regular baths with Tea Tree, Lavender, Bergamot and Roman Chamomile.

Most teens start menstruating when they are 11-13 years old but the first period can start as early as 9! So when do you start to talk about teen menstruation? How early is early enough?

You can generally predict the start of a girls menstrual periods by the development of her breasts. Girls develop breast buds, or small nodules below the nipples as the breasts begin to grow. This development happens approximately 2 years before she will start her period.

Most preteens are too embarrassed to start the discussion themselves so it is up to you to begin the conversation. There is too much information to cover all of it in one conversation and one talk will discourage your girl from asking questions later.

To introduce the topic you may want to ask her what she already knows and has heard from her friends. You can also start the conversation with health issues, which may be less embarrassing for her. Answer any of her questions honestly and at her maturity level.

Teachers have a lot of influence in your child’s life. And since you two are on the same team in trying to ensure your child is successful in school, it’s important to know how to effectively communicate with your child’s teacher. Here are some ideas you can use to ensure you do that.

* As soon as you can, make an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher. If you can do that before the school year begins and there’s no pressure on either of you, it might be the best choice. However, that’s not always possible. By starting your relationship off early, there won’t be problems to contend so it should help it start on the right foot. Then, later in the year, if your child does have problems, you’ll already have effective communication established with your child’s teacher. Don’t wait until there is a problem before you meet your child’s teacher.

* Let the teacher know you want to be considered a partner in your child’s education. Ask them what you can do to help your child. You may be surprised at their suggestions.

Varicose veins develop in men and women when the one-way valves that control the return of blood from the lower extremities to the heart are damaged. These valves prevent the blood from holding in the veins and the subsequent swelling. Unfortunately, some men and women are prone to varicose veins and spider veins because of a genetic predisposition. Women can also develop varicose veins in the vaginal area, especially during pregnancy.

These vaginal varicose veins can occur both within the vaginal vault and outside where they can be seen more clearly. Some women complain of pain and discomfort while others noticed the bump but have no change in sensation. Just as with other varicose veins, women who spend the majority of their day on their feet, will experience greater heaviness and pain at the end of the day. Also, it is not uncommon for women to find that sex is now uncomfortable or painful after they have developed vaginal varicose veins.
