Respiratory Conditions »

Asthma affects 1 out of every 15 students. It has an effect on physical activity, sports involvement, school, friends, and every aspect of their life. Many people look for an immediate natural relief for asthma attacks rather than adding chemicals to their body. However, relief from the asthma attack through natural remedies depends upon the trigger that started the attack.

Asthma has many different triggers or mechanisms that will start an asthma attack. Triggers include chemicals, cleaning supplies, perfumes, emotional stress, environmental allergies, barometric pressure changes, cold weather, food allergies, pets, mold, smoke and pests such as cockroaches and rats.

Most of the solutions to asthmatic attacks include medications, steroids and long term medical treatments. One immediate natural relief for asthma is to avoid the triggers such as avoiding pets, chemicals, environmental allergens and emotional stress. Some triggers are unavoidable such as barometric pressure changes and cold weather or pest droppings in buildings that require your presence.

Joints, Bones & Muscles »

Arthritis is a generic medical term that describes well over 100 different conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, and in some cases other tissues and organs. The term inflammatory arthritis refers to any of these arthritic conditions where there is localized joint inflammation with any other type of inflammation in the tissues or organ systems.

There are several different type of inflammatory arthritis that are more commonly diagnosed than others. These include psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, reactive arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis arthritis. All of these conditions result in painful swelling, inflammation and redness in the joint area that results in disability, poor functional use of the joint and reduced range of motion.

Researchers from the Arthritis Research Campaign at the University of Manchester are looking to identify why the quality of life of a significant number of patients who suffer from arthritis is rated so poorly. In a health related questionnaire patients who suffer from inflammatory arthritis reported levels of pain that was rated “worse than death” by members of the general population. Rheumatoid arthritis was the most common form of the condition which affect the questionnaire participants.

It used to be that choosing toothpaste was a simple matter of going to your local market and picking between two or three popular brands. You may have had a choice of brands and varying flavors, but all in all, the toothpaste was made the same. It was to clean your teeth and to fight off tooth decay. However, these days, it is much different. One trip down the toothpaste isle will tell you that you have many choices in the toothpaste world. There are all sorts of brands, flavors, scents and colors. Some fight gum disease, some makes your teeth whiter and some claim to do it all.

So, when you have to choose toothpaste to fight off bad breath, what is the right choice? Do you go with the brand your mom always bought you, or do your branch out a bit and try some of the newer varieties. One thing is certain, when you choose toothpaste; you want to make sure that you choose the kind that will keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean.
