Breast Cancer - Top Ten Things Every Women Should Know

December 6th, 2006

By Nathalie Fiest

Breast Cancer is a reality many women will have to deal with. Statistics show that one woman out of nine will develop breast Cancer in her life. Whether it be a dear friend, a close family member or herself, every woman will be touched by breast Cancer in one way or the other. Breast Cancer accounts for about 30% of all cancers.

Every woman should be aware of the risk factors and change those she can to lower her risk of developing breast Cancer in her life.

Women who are not active physically, smoke or consume a lot of alcohol are at higher risk to develop breast Cancer. Women who have their first child at a later age or have never given birth are at higher risk to develop breast Cancer. Women who had their first period at an earlier age (less than 12 years old) are at higher risk for breast Cancer. Woman who have close family members who had develop breast Cancer are at higher risk for themselves. Women who are older. The further a woman advances in life, the higher her probability of developing breast Cancer. Women who experience a late Menopause (after 55 years old) have an increase risk of developing breast Cancer.

There is hope however and certain measures have proven to help reduce the risk of developing breast Cancer for a woman. It is recommended to exercise regularly, lose any excess weight, lower alcohol consumption and stop smoking. It is also proven that women who Breastfeed their babies are at lower risks to develop breast Cancer.

Certain measures, by finding breast Cancer at an earlier stage can lower the complication rate and morbidity associated with this condition. The two most recommended measures are to do a mammogram exam every two years after the age of 50 (or earlier if a woman has risk factors) and doing a breast self-examination. It is also recommended for a woman to visit her doctor regularly. One has to know that about two thirds of breast tumours are found by the woman herself upon doing her self-examination.

Many organizations and industries have joined forces to push back breast Cancer and one can only encourage them by donating time or money for this worthy cause. There are many researches on breast Cancer conducted worldwide and it is expected that the near future will see the decline of this devastating affliction.

Acupuncture shows promise for hot flashes

October 6th, 2006

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) — Acupuncture may offer women an alternative for easing Hot Flashes during Menopause, preliminary research suggests.

In a study of 29 women with frequent, daily Hot Flashes, researchers found that those who received acupuncture began to have fewer and less severe symptoms during the night.

As nighttime Hot Flashes improved, so did the quality of the women’s sleep, the researchers report in the journal Fertility & Sterility.

Hot Flashes are a common part of Menopause, and women who get them often have difficulty getting a good night’s sleep. Hormone replacement therapy is effective at quelling Hot Flashes, but given the risks of the therapy — including increased risks of Heart Disease and breast Cancer — many women are interested in alternative treatments.

The new findings offer preliminary evidence that acupuncture works, but it’s too early to recommend the procedure for Hot Flashes, senior study author Dr. Rachel Manber told Reuters Health.

“Large replication studies are necessary before we move from bench to bed,” said Manber, an associate professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine in California.

Recent medical research has found that acupuncture may work by altering signals among nerve cells or by affecting the release of various chemicals of the central nervous system. There’s also some evidence that acupuncture affects hormones related to both sleep and Menopause.

However, for now, the mechanism by which acupuncture might affect Hot Flashes is not completely understood, Manber said.

For their study, she and her colleagues randomly assigned 29 women to receive seven weeks of acupuncture or a “sham” version of the procedure. In the latter case, acupuncturists used flat-tipped needles that did not pierce the skin, placing them on areas of the skin not considered to be acupuncture points. The patients could not see that the needles weren’t piercing their skin.

By the end of treatment, women who’d been getting the real acupuncture sessions reported a greater reduction in the severity of their nighttime Hot Flashes than those in the comparison group.

Both groups said their Hot Flashes had become less frequent, the researchers found, and as hot flash symptoms improved, so did the women’s sleep quality.

The sleep improvements were seen in both groups, and acupuncture itself did not seem to have a special effect on sleep. However, Manber pointed out, the acupuncture points used in the study were chosen because they target hot flash symptoms, according to traditional medicine. So the therapy was not designed to directly address sleep problems, she said.

Menopause and Urinary Infections

August 14th, 2006

Urinary Infections, also known as infections of the urinary tract, are one of the most common bacterial infections in women. The urinary tract is more susceptible to infections during Menopause due to reduction in hormonal support.

This tract, being a system for the removal of the body’s fluid wastes, is more vulnerable to multiplication of bacteria, leading to infection. Though not very serious, the Urinary Infections are painful. The symptoms disappear quickly after treatment with antibiotics.

Most women would experience infections of the urinary tract, at least once in their lifetimes, though many would have them repeatedly.

Menopause and Urinary Infections - Their Causes

Factors leading to increased risks of Urinary Infections in women are Pregnancy, Urinary Infections as a child, Diabetes and Menopause. The bacteria, around the rectum or the vagina, which enter the urinary tract cause Urinary Infections in women. The female anatomy is prone to Urinary Infections as the very act, and sexual intercourse Massages the bacteria into the urethra.

A Weak Bladder could be the cause of Urinary Infections. The bladder stretches to hold urine and relaxes when it is emptied of urine. When, at times, you wait a long time to empty your bladder, the bladder is overstretched and the bladder muscle becomes weak. In this state, it does not completely empty the bladder and retains some urine, which increases the risk of infection.

When you have Urinary Infections, you have a strong urge to urinate. The act of urination is followed by sharp pain and a burning sensation in the urethra. Some times, even when the urge is great, very little urine is released. This frequent urge to urinate is one of the symptoms of Urinary Infections. It is advisable to have proper diagnosis done, since during Menopause similar symptoms could cause vaginal or vulva-related infections.

Ways to Prevent Urinary Infections during Menopause

The usual treatment is a course of antibiotics. Antibiotics need to be taken as prescribed and continued until the full treatment is complete. There are certain ways that you can prevent Urinary Infections from occurring:

� First and foremost is to practice good personal hygiene.

� After bowel movement and urination, wash the area around the rectum and the vagina thoroughly and ensure it is dried properly.

� Washing before and after sexual intercourse is a way of preventing Urinary Infections. Some doctors recommend urinating before and after a sexual intercourse to flush out bacteria.

� Drink plenty of water to ensure flushing out of bacteria from the urinary tract. Do not accumulate urine in the bladder, and empty it out at the earliest to reduce the risk of infections.

� Cotton panties, or panties with a cotton crotch, is recommended as cotton allows moisture to evaporate. Moist environment is a breeding ground for bacteria.

� Sexually active women can change sexual positions to cause less friction on the urethra. Women who tend to have frequent Urinary Infections are advised to take antibiotics after sexual intercourse.

Natural Remedies for Endometriosis

August 13th, 2006

What is Endometriosis?

The endometrium is a special type of tissue that usually lines the inner walls of a woman�s uterus. Sometimes endometrium migrates and becomes implanted in other areas within the pelvis. In women with Endometriosis there may be endometrial tissue on the fallopian tubes, the ovaries or anywhere else on the lining of the pelvis- these are all places endometrial tissue is not meant to be.

During a woman�s normal menstrual cycle the endometrium within the uterus becomes thickened and prepared for the possibility of conception and Pregnancy. This occurs under the influence of hormones in the blood stream. If conception does not occur, the hormone levels decrease and the endometrium comes away from the wall of the uterus and is shed through the vagina - what we know as menstruation or our monthly period.

In women with Endometriosis the same process occurs but the extra endometrial tissue in various sites around the pelvis reacts in the same way to hormonal changes in the bloodstream. This means the misplaced endometrium thickens and breaks down as normal but then has nowhere to exit the body and becomes trapped. This can lead to inflammation and pain in the surrounding tissue and, in the long term, can form cysts and Scar tissue.

How will I know if I have Endometriosis?

Endometriosis can cause severe pain, usually in the pelvic area, and women with this condition usually feel the most pain and discomfort during their monthly period. This pain can be debilitating and is generally more severe than what other women experience as �period pain.� Other symptoms of this condition are Menorrhagia or Excessive Menstrual Bleeding, bleeding in between periods and pain during sexual intercourse or bowel movements.

Endometriosis may also decrease Fertility and is an important factor in women who are having difficulty getting Pregnant. In some women, Endometriosis may cause few or even no symptoms at all.

Endometriosis is a very common disorder and current estimates indicate that almost 1 in 10 women in their reproductive years suffer from this condition. It is most common in women who have not had children.

Because various other conditions may mimic the same symptoms as Endometriosis, it is important to consult your health care provider about any troublesome menstrual symptoms or anything else that causes you to suspect this condition. Endometriosis is usually easily diagnosed by means of an internal pelvic examination.

What causes Endometriosis?

Modern medicine is not quite sure what causes Endometriosis. However, although the cause of Endometriosis has not been scientifically proven, there are a number of possible options that are being researched by conventional medicine. One theory is that a small amount of menstrual blood does not flow out of the vagina as is usual but instead travels backwards through the fallopian tubes into the pelvic cavity.

Endometrial cells contained in this blood then act as �seeds� to produce areas of endometrial tissue outside of the uterus. It is not understood why this process leads to Endometriosis in some women but not others. Studies suggest that it has something to do with Immune Functioning. Another theory is that the endometrial cells are transferred within the bloodstream. This theory is based on the fact that endometrial cells can be isolated from blood in the blood vessels and would explain cases of Endometriosis found in obscure sites such as the lung.

Traditional Chinese and Oriental medicine has a different understanding and approach to the cause of Endometriosis - but one which fits the current scientific knowledge and would fill in many of the gaps in scientists� theories. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Endometriosis is classified as a liver disorder and associated with liver stagnation. In every woman with Endometriosis the underlying cause for this liver blood stagnation may be slightly different but the outcome is similar.

Recent studies have supported this theory and implicated chronic exposure to dioxins (an environmental pollutant) to both liver health and Endometriosis independently. Unfortunately, for women living a modern lifestyle, avoiding these dioxins would be very difficult as they are found in a large proportion of all fish, meat and dairy products produced for human consumption. A compromised liver would also play a part in weakening the Immune System - once again a factor implicated in Endometriosis.

Eating foods that are understood to be liver-weakening is also a problem of modern lifestyle and Endometriosis. Refined foods, especially those containing wheat flour and sugar, deep fried foods, caffeine and ice-cold drinks, all compromise liver functioning and should be avoided by women in general, but particularly those with a predisposition to or past experience of Endometriosis. Stress is also a big enemy of liver health and in Chinese medicine the liver is considered the most emotion-sensitive organ of the body.

Apart from stress and environmental pollution, conventional drugs and medications are also largely to blame for liver weakness and stagnation. Painkillers are a huge culprit in Endometriosis. Women with this condition often rely on conventional pain killers and Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug�s (NSAIDs) to help them cope with the pain around menstruation. NSAID�s are one of the most damaging classes of drugs, especially to the liver and Kidneys, and these medicines can actually contribute to the worsening of Endometriosis in the long-term, even causing irreversible damage.

What complications can Endometriosis cause?

If left untreated or if poorly managed Endometriosis generally worsens over time. The most serious and often heart-breaking complication of Endometriosis is Infertility. Endometriosis is sometimes diagnosed for the first time when a woman seeks Fertility treatment.

Scar tissue caused by Endometriosis may be the culprit in preventing conception - sometimes partially or completely blocking the path of the egg to be fertilized. There are probably also other, less understood ways that Endometriosis can affect Fertility and although many women with Endometriosis can still fall Pregnant, it usually takes longer than average or requires some type of intervention.

What is the usual treatment for Endometriosis?

Conventional treatment for Endometriosis is based on prescription medications or surgery depending on the severity of the condition and whether the woman wants to get Pregnant.

For women who wish to control the pain of Endometriosis and menstruation in this condition, the most common treatment is with Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID’s) which vary in effectiveness depending on the severity of the condition, the strength of the drug prescribed as well as individual factors. The use of pain-killers or NSAID�s in Endometriosis is only really effective at treating the symptoms, such as menstrual cramps, pelvic pain and painful intercourse and will have no positive long-term effect on the condition itself.

Hormonal medications including the contraceptive pill are used to treat the progression of Endometriosis itself and are useful in reducing symptoms and shrinking the endometrial deposits. Unfortunately though, hormonal drugs are also only a temporary solution. While using these drugs the Endometriosis will be suppressed and symptoms improved but long-term, the condition will return. Within 1-2 years of stopping hormonal treatment, the Endometriosis will flare-up again with all of the associated symptoms. Also, large deposits of endometrial tissue in the pelvis (i.e. larger than 3 cm in diameter) do not generally respond to hormonal treatment at all.

Both NSAID�s and hormonal treatments can also cause a variety of adverse side-effects including irregular bleeding, thrombosis, Menopausal symptoms such as Hot Flashes, reduced bone density and vaginal dryness (which may or may not be reversible). As mentioned above, use of painkillers and NSAID’s can also compromise liver functioning - thereby contributing to the continuation or even worsening of the Endometriosis.

Surgery may be regarded as either conservative or radical. In conservative surgery endometrial deposits, Scar tissue and cysts are removed as much as is possible with the maximum amount of healthy tissue left intact. Radical surgery is usually reserved for severe cases or women who have completed their families and usually takes the form of a complete hysterectomy.

How can Natural Remedies help?

By treating the underlying cause of the Endometriosis - namely a poorly functioning liver - Traditional Chinese Medicine has the potential to cure the condition and prevent future recurrence rather than just suppressing the symptoms and outcomes as is the case with conventional medicine.

The herbal ingredients used in traditional Oriental treatment of Endometriosis work by fundamentally changing the functioning of the liver and female reproductive system. In order to do this, the treatment must be continued regularly for a regimen of several months and even longer if necessary in particularly stubborn cases. Medicinal Herbs in general take longer than allopathic medicines to show their effectiveness but the patience and persistence required is usually worth the safer, superior and often permanent results achieved.

What is Endo-Ex Formula?

Endo-Ex is a safe and effective Natural Remedy for treating Endometriosis. Containing Herbs known for their liver strengthening and hormone-balancing properties in concentrated tincture form, Endo-Ex offers a healthy and potentially permanent solution to stubborn and painful Endometriosis, without exacerbating the condition as is often the case with conventional treatment.

Use Endo-Ex To:

  • Address the underlying cause of Endometriosis
  • Decrease pelvic inflammation associated with Endometriosis
  • Strengthen liver functioning and protect against environmental pollutants
  • Reduce menstrual pain and cramps
  • Regulate the menstrual cycle
  • Prevent diminished Fertility in women with Endometriosis

What are the ingredients of Endo-Ex?

This 100% Natural Remedy contains the following herbal and homeopathic ingredients:

Vitex agnus-castus is also known as Chasteberry and is a useful hormone-balancing herb. Recent studies have shown that compounds in Vitex are effective in adjusting female hormones that are out of balance and regulating menstruation. Vitex has also been proven to be effective in the treatment of Endometriosis, PMS and dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation). Chasteberry helps the liver to process and excrete estrogen which is important for women with Endometriosis as excess estrogen in the system has been linked to the development of this condition.

Angelica senensis (Don Quai) acts as a hormone balancer and is an indispensable herb for treatment of female reproductive disorders. A very highly regarded medicinal herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Don Quai acts as a tonic herb for the reproductive system and will address the overall health of your reproductive organs. It is especially useful in treatment of irregular periods, polycystic ovarian syndrome, estrogen dominance and Endometriosis. Don Quai is also a well-known liver tonic and blood pressure regulator.

Silybum marianus (Milk Thistle) This herb has been used since ancient times for treating a wide variety of ailments, but is particularly effective in the treatment of liver problems. Studies suggest that this herb protects the liver from damage by viruses, pollution, stress and Toxins. Milk Thistle is a potent Antioxidant and laboratory studies indicate it may have useful anti-Cancer properties.

Dioscorea villosa (Chinese Yam) is an excellent natural liver and nervous system tonic. It is also known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties and will decrease menstrual pain as well as inflammation associated with Endometriosis that leads to Scar tissue.

Viburnum opulus (30C) is a homeopathic remedy known for its effectiveness in treating painful menstruation, especially backache.

Endo-Ex contains less than 1% pure pharmaceutical ethanol when diluted as directed. Like all Native Remedies products, Endo-Ex contains no artificial flavors or colors and is gluten free.

How has Endo-Ex helped other women?

“After having had Endometriosis since my teens I was tired of the awful monthly pains and was not interested in using oral contraceptives as my doctor suggested because I want to get Pregnant in the near future. I decided to try your Endo-Ex and it has really helped me. The dreadful pains every month have subsided considerably and these days I don�t feel completely useless and miserable when I get my period. I am confident that with continued treatment my problem will be completely cured.” - Kerryn

“My husband and I have been trying to conceive for more than a year and it just wasn�t happening for us. After extensive testing I was told that I have Endometriosis and this was why I was struggling to get Pregnant. I went through two traumatic and expensive attempts at IVF before I decided to give the natural route a shot. After 6 months of using Endo-Ex I got Pregnant. We were both flabbergasted and thrilled! I have Native Remedies to thank for this miracle and don�t think you will ever understand how grateful I am.” - Andrea

Causes and Treatment of Menorrhagia

July 13th, 2006

What is Menorrhagia?

Menorrhagia refers to Excessive Bleeding during menstruation and is experienced by many women at some point in their lives. Bleeding may be very heavy during a normal length period or in the form of prolonged bleeding every cycle. The average menstrual period lasts between four and five days and produces 60 to 250 ml of blood. What is �normal� varies quite widely between different women and one woman may be used to a regular 28 day cycle with a 3-day bleed while another may menstruate every 35 days for 7 days. Both may be considered normal.

Bleeding in excess of what is considered �normal�, acceptable to the individual or even healthy may be known as Menorrhagia.

Menorrhagia can include:

  • Menstrual bleeding that lasts longer than seven days
  • Bleeding which soaks one or more sanitary pads or tampons every hour for several consecutive hours
  • Needing to use �double� sanitary protection or change sanitary pads or tampons during the night
  • Menstrual flow that includes large blood clots
  • Heavy Periods that interfere with your regular lifestyle
  • Tiredness, fatigue or shortness of breath due to anemia

What causes Heavy Periods?

In a large proportion of women who experience Excessive Menstrual Bleeding the cause is not known. There are certain conditions that may be to blame though. These may include hormonal imbalances, fibroids, uterine cysts and polyps, some forms of Cancer and certain medications. Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUD�s) may also lead to Excessive Bleeding.

In order to exclude the above causes, it is important to consult your health care provider about any changes in your menstrual cycle such as increased length of menstruation and heavier flow. Any vaginal bleeding after Menopause should also lead you to seek medical advice.

In young women who have begun menstruating in the last 18 months, Menorrhagia is common due to irregular ovulation. Also, for women approaching the Menopause, hormonal imbalance may contribute to heavier and irregular menstruation.

What complications can Heavy Periods cause?

Menstrual bleeding that is prolonged or excessive over several cycles may lead to health complications if not properly managed. Iron deficiency anemia is caused by the loss of red blood cells during Heavy Menstrual Bleeding. Anemia typically causes weakness and fatigue though women with more severe cases may even find themselves short of breath, light-headed, experiencing Restless Leg Syndrome or a rapid heart rate. Anemia can be easily remedied and reversed with iron Supplements and proper treatment of Menorrhagia.

Menorrhagia is also associated with severe cramps and �period pains� as well as decreased Fertility.

What is the usual treatment for Menorrhagia?

Conventional treatment of Menorrhagia is based on treating any underlying cause or condition or, in the many women who have no known cause, symptomatic treatment may range from oral contraceptives and other hormonal medications to surgery.

What is Mens-Reduce Formula?

Mens-Reduce is 100% safe and effective Natural Remedy for reducing Excessive Menstrual Bleeding and regulating a woman�s cycle.

Use Mens-Reduce To:

What are the ingredients of Mens-Reduce?

This remedy contains the following herbal and homeopathic ingredients:

Capsella bursa-pastoris has been used since the 19th century for bleeding problems including blood in the urine, Bruises and heavy menstruation.

Calendula officinalis is used as a menstrual cycle regulator in naturopathic medicine. This herb is excellent for women who suffer from irregular periods and will also relieve pain associated with menstruation.

Study: Yoga helps breast cancer patients

June 10th, 2006

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) — Women going through treatment for breast Cancer felt better when they tried Yoga, according to one of the first scientific studies of its kind.

“Our belief is something as simple and brief as a short (Yoga) program would be very useful” at combating side effects from Cancer treatment, said Lorenzo Cohen, a psychologist who led the pilot study.

Yoga incorporates Meditation, relaxation, imagery, controlled breathing, stretching and physical movements. Although the study was small and preliminary, it’s one of the few to try to rigorously measure the benefits of this form of exercise, Cohen said.

Researchers at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center focused on 61 women who had surgery for breast Cancer and now were getting six weeks of radiation treatment. Thirty women were assigned to a test group that took twice-a-week Yoga classes. The others did not.

At the end of six weeks, study participants filled out detailed questionnaires grading their ability to lift groceries, walk a mile and perform other physical activities. They also were asked about feelings of fatigue, their sense of well-being and other aspects of their quality of life.

Their scores were converted to a scale that ranged from 0 to 100. The researchers found the Yoga group consistently had higher scores in almost every area. It was most pronounced in physical function — the Yoga group had a mean score of about 82, compared with 69 for the other group.

Participants said they were in better general health, were less fatigued A.D.H.D.fewer problems with daytime sleepiness. But the researchers found no differences between the groups in measurements of Depression or Anxiety.

The researchers drew blood and took saliva samples in an effort to measure the participants’ Immune System function and stress levels, but those results are not finished yet, said Cohen, who presented the results at a medical conference in Atlanta held by the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

A future study will have one group do stretching and another Yoga, to see if there is a difference in the result, Cohen said.

Traditionally, such scientific approaches have been lacking in the assessment of Yoga’s medical benefits, said Alan Kristal, an epidemiology professor at the University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine.

Due in part to increased federal funding for research into alternative therapies, more rigorous studies have emerged in the last three or four years that attempt to provide harder proof, Kristal said.

Recent studies have demonstrated the benefits of Yoga for Cancer patients and people with carpal tunnel syndrome. Kristal co-authored a study last year that found middle-aged people who regularly did Yoga lost weight over 10 years while a non-Yoga group gained, on average, more than 13 pounds.

The National Cancer Institute recently awarded Cohen and his team $2.4 million to study the effects of Tibetan Yoga on women with breast Cancer undergoing Chemotherapy. It was the largest ever federal grant for the study of Tibetan Yoga in Cancer patients.

Teresita Ladrillo, 52, a Houston breast Cancer patient currently taking Yoga classes at M.D. Anderson, said the stretching helped her regain flexibility in her right arm, which was limited by scarring from surgeries and other treatments.

Learning to control her breathing through Yoga has helped her to calm and sleep, she said.

“Whenever you do Yoga, the first thing they tell you is forget everything else and just focus on your breathing,” she said. “There’s something to be said for being still.”

The Problem of Frequent Bladder Infections

March 8th, 2006

Symptoms of Lower UTI (Cystitis, Urethritis) in Adults:

  • Back pain
  • Blood in the urine (Hematuria)
  • Cloudy urine
  • Inability to urinate despite the urge
  • Fever
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Painful Urination (Dysuria)
    • Malaise (general discomfort)

What is a Urinary Tract Infection?

Infections of the Urinary Tract are extremely common, accounting for more than 8 million doctor’s visits a year. Approximately 8 - 10 million people in the USA develop a UTI each year.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) usually occurs when bacteria enter the opening of the urethra and multiply in the urinary tract. The urinary tract includes the two Kidneys, ureters (tubes that carry urine from the Kidneys to the bladder), the bladder itself, and urethra (tube that carries urine from the bladder to the urethral opening).

The special connection of the ureters at the bladder help prevent urine from backing up into the Kidneys, and the flow of urine through the urethra helps to eliminate bacteria. Men, women, and children develop UTIs.

Twenty percent of women in the United States develop a UTI and 20% of those have a recurrence. Urinary Tract Infections in children are more common in those under the age of 2. (More on causes and risk factors)

Infections in women

Women are more prone to UTI’s, probably because they have shorter urethras which therefore pass bacteria into the urinary tract more easily.

Statistics show that one woman in five will develop a UTI during her lifetime. Some women are prone to recurring infections.

Women who have had more than three UTI’s are likely to continue to develop recurrences within 18 months of a UTI. In severe cases this can be even more frequent.

Infections in men

Men are not as prone to UTI’s as women, but infections are still common. The prostate gland in men produces secretions that retard the growth of bacteria and a healthy prostate is one of the best defenses against UTI’s in men (see Prostate Dr)

While men develop UTI’s less frequently than women, their infections tend to be more severe. UTI’s in men are often caused by an obstruction (e.g. a urinary stone) or an Enlarged Prostate.

Prostate infections are more difficult to cure via conventional means because many antibiotics do not easily penetrate infected prostate tissue.

What is the usual treatment for a UTI?

Once a UTI has been diagnosed, most conventional doctors choose antibiotics as the preferred treatment. A course of antibiotics can quickly cure a UTI and kill the bacteria that cause it.

Although antibiotics certainly have their place, there are two main problems with antibiotic use for urinary tract infections:

  1. Due to the frequency of antibiotic use for UTI’s and other infections, bacteria are developing a resistance to the antibiotics, making them less and less effective. The ’smarter’ the antibiotics become, the ’smarter’ are the bacteria, which mutate to avoid the effects of the antibiotics.

  2. Frequent use of antibiotics will also affect your Immune System functioning. As we have seen above, a healthy Immune System is important in the prevention of UTI’s. This means that the antibiotics that are used to cure your UTI, may make another infection more likely in the near future.

Natural Remedies

There are many natural Herbs which are extremely effective in the treatment and prevention of UTI’s. Some of these have been used for centuries and many have been subjected to clinical trials which prove their effectiveness.

Using the knowledge and experience of experts in the field of natural and indigenous medicine, Native Remedies has developed a unique formula containing a total of seven therapeutic Herbs, especially selected to relieve the symptoms of UTI and promote the health of the urinary system.

What is UTI-Clear?

Containing a unique combination of potent Herbs in therapeutic dosage, UTI-Clear relieves the symptoms of Cystitis, Bladder Infections and Urinary Tract Infections (UTI).

Many people suffer from recurring infections of the bladder and urinary tract and find it embarrassing and costly to constantly have to consult their doctors for the same reason. Now you can help yourself with UTI-Clear

UTI-Clear Effectively:

  • Stops burning when urinating, helps to flush out the bladder and urinate more easily
  • Reduces the need for Frequent Urination and eliminates inability to urinate
  • even though you have the urge
  • Treats and prevents recurring Cystitis
  • Assists with Bloating and as a diuretic
  • Reduces your dependence on antibiotics

When should I use UTI-Clear?

A few drops of UTI-Clear at the first signs of infection (burning and Frequent Urination, fever, stomach cramps or lower back ache) can help to clear the infection and stop it from recurring time and time again. Give UTI-Clear to your partner to prevent re-infection.

How has UTI-Clear helped others?

“I just wanted to write to you to tell you thank you so much for the UTI-Clear product… I was an otherwise healthy 47 year old woman when last September I was afflicted by a UTI, well I went on antibiotics and over the course of the following 5 months I was put on over 7 different antibiotics, each time getting rid of the UTI for a short time, but then coming back with a vengeance each time, sometimes getting a UTI while I was on the antibiotic!! I was going to a specialist A.D.H.D.all kinds of expensive tests run, it was getting to be a nightmare..well I ordered your product, at the first tingle I used it for 3 days, and now am completely symptom free!!! It is nothing less than a miracle …I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have found this product.. I truly don’t know what I would have done without it…thank you so much.” - Toni, MO

“Hi Guys! I had to write you and say thanks a lot for UTI-Clear. I had 3 Urinary Tract Infections within the past year. I would take prescribed antibiotics and it would go away but come back again. My bladder became terribly weak and I even would urinate on myself if I could make it quick enough to the restroom. I tried UTI-Clear and it speaks for itself. It worked wonderfully in only 3 days. All of the Weak Bladder symptoms and other urinary tract symptoms went away and has yet to return. Thanks guys!.” VERY HAPPY in Georgia

“I am not the type of person to write a testimonial, but feel compelled to do so because of how UTI-Clear has changed the quality of my life. For about 7 years I have suffered with Urinary Tract Infections and could not understand why I chronically had these while other women I know never did. I could not maintain a regular sex life because of this problem. Last year I was on antibiotics 8 times for Urinary Tract Infections. The gynecologist who was prescribing these told me I must go to a urologist to begin considering surgery. I began to do research about why some women chronically have UTI’s and others do not, when I came across nativeremedies.com. I immediately ordered the UTI-Clear. It has been about 7 months and I have not had one Urinary Tract Infection since I began taking this product. Thank you, it has changed my life in every area.” - Ann, NY, U.S.A.

“I have to admit that initially I ordered UTI Clear as a last resort but I can’t believe how well it works!! I have suffered from recurrent UTI for 25 years and have had endless courses of antibiotics, followed up by endless medical investigations. However with this amazing product I really have been able to change my life. I can’t thank you enough.” -JB, UK

“My recent purchase of UTI-Clear resulted in complete satisfaction. Not only did this product live up to the promises you advertise on your site, but it made me feel very confident in using herbal/homeopathic treatments in the future. I am very pleased with the results, and this is to show my appreciation for your quality products.” - Lissette, U.S.A.

“I am a disabled man (quadriplegic) from an accident I had 25 years ago. For most of that 25 years I have suffered from Urinary Tract Infections, some very severe at times. I have used antibiotics to the point they are not very effective anymore. The last time I had a UTI the antibiotic pills were ineffective A.D.H.D.to be in the hospital for 10 days of IV antibiotics. I am very excited about using your UTI-Clear product and just wish I had found this years ago. I recently started coming down with another bad infection when I tried this great product for the first time. After just a few days using UTI-Clear I felt great and did not experience the bad side effects of antibiotics. Thank you very much for this life saving product.” - John, Texas, USA

“I suffered with recurring Urinary Tract Infection and the antibiotics provided by my doctor offer only temporary relief. I found UTI-Clear and ImmunityPlus on the web and my symptoms have now cleared to the extent that I no longer suffer the agony of this uncomfortable condition. I am grateful that the products are shipped internationally as I have been unable to locate such a beneficial product in the UK.” - Barbara, Lancashire, UK

“I have suffered for 6 years with chronic UTI, and have been on constant antibiotic therapy. As a last attempt at relief, I came across UTI-Clear. It began working in 2 days and I have been symptom free since I began using it 3 weeks ago. I finally feel relief, and would recommend this product to anyone who has suffered like I have.” - Karen, CA, USA

UTI-Clear contains seven Herbs formulated in therapeutic dosages:

UTI-Clear is formulated in therapeutic dosage and contains medicinal extracts of Agothosma betulina (Buchu), Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (umbabazane), Melissa Officinalis (Lemon Balm), Avena Sativa (Hawer), Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s Wort), Vaccinium myrtillus (billberry), and Echinacea angustifolia.

Is there anything else I can do to prevent a UTI?

Yes! Here are some things that you can do to take responsibility for the continued health of your urinary system.

  1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Remember that urine flushes out bacteria from the urinary tract and therefore prevents infection. Sufficient water every day is necessary for regular urination.

  2. Some women are prone to develop a UTI after sexual intercourse. Cleansing the penis and the vagina both before and after making love will help to prevent infection. It will also helps for women to completely empty their bladders after sex, so that the urine can flush out any bacteria which may have entered the urethra during intercourse.

  3. Avoid the use of scented vaginal sprays and douches. These products are more beneficial to their manufacturers than they are to female health! Always wear panties with a cotton gusset.

  4. For recurring infections, it is recommended that both men and women take a regular course of ImmunityPlus (see below for a 20% special on our PowerPack)- a Natural Remedy especially formulated to boost the Immune System and protect against all types of infection, including UTI.

  5. It is also highly recommended that all men over the age of 50, use Prostate Dr - a formula that promotes prostate health and helps to relieve and protect against the symptoms of BPH and prostatitis. BPH (Benign Prostate Hypertrophy) is a condition which causes swelling and enlargement of the prostate gland, which in turn can increase the likelihood of men developing a UTI.

How do I use UTI-Clear?

Dosage: Take 15 drops in a little water 3 times per day.

One bottle holds about 45 doses and will last 15 days. We recommend keeping one bottle of UTI-Clear on hand at all times.

For maximum results use with ImmunityPlus (see special PowerPack below)

Caution: Safety during Pregnancy or Breastfeeding has not yet been established.

How long until I see results?

Due to the fast-acting tincture formula, just a few drops of UTI-Clear in a little water will show results within about 24 hours.

Continued use over a period of 3 - 5 days will completely clear the symptoms of most bacterial UTI’s without the use of antibiotics and without compromising your Immune System.

Use consistently and drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

Dealing With Menopause

December 28th, 2005

What is Menopause?

Menopause is the time at “mid-life” when a woman has her last period. It happens when the ovaries stop releasing eggs - usually a gradual process. Sometimes it happens all at once.

Perimenopause is the period of gradual changes that lead into Menopause. It affects a woman’s hormones, body, and feelings. It can be a stop-start process that may take months or years.

“Climacteric”is another word for the time when a woman passes from the reproductive to the non-reproductive years of her life.

The ovaries’ production of estrogen slows down during Perimenopause. Hormone levels fluctuate, causing changes just as they did during adolescence.

The changes leading to Menopause may seem much more intense than those during puberty. The intensity may be affected by a woman’s feelings about aging, including her reactions to social judgments about aging.

Induced Menopause occurs if the ovaries are removed or damaged as in hysterectomy or Chemotherapy. In this case, Menopause begins immediately, with no Perimenopause. The time after Menopause is called Postmenopause.

The average age for a woman’s final period is 51, but it can occur as early as age 40 and as late as age 60. Each woman’s experience with Menopause is unique. Some women experience very few changes during this time, while others report noticeable symptoms.

The more you know about Menopause, the better prepared you will be to manage any Menopause-related problems that might come your way.

Indications of Menopause

Achy joints - Hot Flashes - temporary and minor decrease in the ability to concentrate or recall - changes in sexual desire - extreme Sweating - Headaches - Frequent Urination - early wakening - vaginal dryness - mood changes - Insomnia - Night Sweats - conditions commonly associated with PMS ….More on the 32 Menopause symptoms

Treatment, diet and lifestyle

Dealing with Menopause is best accomplished via a combination of diet, healthy lifestyle and and alternative or natural treatments.

Many doctors are early in prescribing radical treatments such as HRT without fully educating their patients on the risks and side effects associated with the treatment.

Before embarking on so radical a treatment, consider first the proven, 100% safe, effective, Natural Remedy - MellowPause.

What is MellowPause?

Estrogen dominance is also a factor in some of the more troublesome symptoms of Menopause as well as PMS and complaints like PCOS.

Estrogen dominance is thought to occur when there is a drop in progesterone production during Menopause.

Black Cohosh is one of the more thoroughly researched Herbs which contains phytoestrogens and is approved by the German ‘Kommission E” - a body similar to the FDA.

Because Black Cohosh has mild estrogen-like effects it will bind to estrogen receptors, without raising estrogen levels in the body - thereby lowering the estrogenic activity of the body.

Phytoestrogens can compete with excess systemic estrogen and xeno-estrogens and therefore help to balance systemic estrogen production.

In addition, research suggests that Black Cohosh also suppresses Luteinizing Hormone (LH), high levels of which are responsible for Hot Flashes, among other things.

Black Cohosh is one of the principle ingredients in our MellowPause remedy, along with Pasque Flower which is a well known tonic for the female reproductive system.

In the case of severe Menopausal symptoms, we recommend that MellowPause be taken together with Don Quai, which has been used for many centuries in traditional Chinese medicine.

Don Quai is also well researched and apart from its phyto-estrogenic properties, it has also been shown to be effective in the induction of progesterone receptor activity, thereby further balancing the estrogen/progesterone ratios.

Use MellowPause for immediate relief from symptoms:

Why is MellowPause better than HRT and soy?

The risks and long term effects of HRT are well known, and MellowPause is a much more comprehensive solution than soy-based products.

While soy has been shown to have positive effect on hormone balancing, MellowPause’s combination of ingredients make it effective for not only hormone balancing, but helps with other Menopausal symptoms such as irritability, mood swings and Insomnia.

How has MellowPause helped others?

“I started with ADDult and immediately felt better. Not trusting my feelings I went to my doctor to get a prescription for Strattera. Strattera not only didn’t work any better, but made me feel sick and drugged everyday. I immediately came off of it and started back on my ADDult. I will swear by this stuff! I feel more mentally alert and it is not my imagination. I have also recently purchased MellowPause and have immediately felt the difference. I highly recommend these products. They work!!!” - Sharon C., WV

I would like to let you know that this Menopause Treatment has done wonders for me!! Thank you. - Clare M., USA

“I have been taking your recommended Herbs, Dong Quai, MellowPause and Femalite for a couple of months. I do have to tell you that all of my symptoms have totally disappeared. I probably started your course about last week of May. My sister is actually a Homeopath practicing in London and I will be visiting her in September and I can’t wait to share my news with her! Thank you.”- Clare L. UK

“Your MellowPause remedy has made such a difference! My Hot Flashes have almost completely disappeared. Thank you for all your help.” Nelly, USA

“Thank you very much for recommending your MellowPause treatment. I honestly felt like I could climb the walls! My mother also struggled during her Menopause and I guess it must run in the family. I feel so much more calm and all the Hot Flashes have gone!” Sandra, SA.

I would like to let you know that this Menopause Treatment has done wonders for me!! Thank you. - Claire, Sydney, Australia,

“I used to wake up at night absolutely drenched in Sweat! I’ve been taking Dong Quai and MellowPause for about two months now and I can really see the difference. I am not Sweating at night anymore and I feel much calmer.” - Molly, SA

“I was very depressed and my moods were up one day and down the next. When I went to my doctor she said that I was starting to go through the Menopause even though I was only 41 years old. She told me about this remedy and I tried it. I take it every day and I feel fine - not moody anymore, thank goodness!”- Belle, Canada

The Complete Menopause Program

Native Remedies has put together a trio of effective, natural remedies: MellowPause, Dong Quai, and Femalite. Each, on its own, has been shown to be highly effective.

Based on Michele’s experience over years of successfully helping women suffering from symptoms of Menopause and PMS, we have developed this comprehensive three-month treatment course at a specially reduced price.

MellowPause contains:

Cimicifuga Racemosa (Black Cohosh) is a relaxing Nerve Tonic and has been used over the ages as a remedy for female gynecological problems. Recent clinical studies done in Germany have confirmed that Cimicifuga is strongly estrogenic and that it is effective in relieving Menopausal symptoms. It has as its main constituents triterpene glycosides, cinnamic acid derivatives, chromone, isoflavones, tannins and salicylic acid.

Pulsatilla vulgaris (Pasque Flower) is an important nerve relaxant and mild sedative, which is also a soothing analgesic for the female reproductive organs. Pulsatilla has also been used by patients trying to recover from dependence on benzodiazepine tranquillizers.

MellowPause can also be taken with Dong Quai for long-term relief.

How do I use MellowPause?

Ten to fifteen drops in a 1/4 glass of water three times daily or as prescribed.

Caution: Safety during Pregnancy or Breastfeeding has not yet been established.

How long will a bottle last?

One bottle of MellowPause will last 25-30 days.

A 90-120 day supply of 3 bottles is offered at a discount

Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)

December 16th, 2005

What is Premenstrual Syndrome?

PMS is a disorder characterized by a set of hormonal changes that trigger disruptive symptoms in a significant number (estimated 40 million suffers) of women for up to two weeks prior to menstruation.

Often symptoms tend to taper off with menstruation and women remain symptom-free until the two weeks or so prior to the next menstrual period. These regularly recurring symptoms from ovulation until menses typify PMS, Premenstrual Syndrome.

Characteristics of PMS

Over 150 symptoms have been attributed to PMS. After complaints of feeling “out-of-control”, anxious, depressed and having uncontrollable crying spells, the most common complaints are headache and fatigue. But symptoms may vary from month to month and there may even be symptom-free months.

Characteristically symptoms may be both physical and emotional. They may include physical symptoms as headache, Migraine, Fluid Retention, fatigue, Constipation, painful joints, backache, Abdominal Cramping, heart palpitations and weight gain.

Emotional and behavioral changes may include Anxiety, Depression, irritability, Panic Attacks, Tension,lack of co-ordination, decreased work or social performance and altered Libido. (some useful PMS information)

Use Femalite for a few days before your period and say goodbye to Bloating, sore breasts and mean mood swings!

Use Femalite for relief from symptoms of PMS including:

How has Femalite helped others?

“I had such bad PMS - every month I cried and nothing seemed to go right for me. My boyfriend said I was like a different person. I don’t think he could understand and we would have one fight after the other. Since taking Femalite I can feel the difference. I don’t feel so moody and I can talk about how I feel rather than yelling and crying. Thanks for all your help” - Carol, USA

“For years my PMS has been completely out of control. I have been hospitalized twice for my symptoms which have been as severe as passing out, throwing up, diarrhea, and fever. Doctors have tried everything from birth control pills to heavy medication, yet nothing has really worked. To control my cramps recently I have been exceeding the prescribed about of pain killers and even doubling my dosage of prescribed medicine. Recently, I went on the internet in search of something homeopathic, although I was skeptical that anything could help me. When I saw the description for Femalite I thought it was seriously too good to be true. However, I figured it would be better to try something that didn’t work and wasn’t harmful for my body rather than the heavy drugs that I have been prescribed.

Normally five days before my period I have intense mood swings; I feel really sad or frustrated and usually yell and cry at my loved ones. Also during this time I get the worst Headaches (irritated by light and uncontrollable) and cramps. Yesterday, I felt those symptoms coming on so I started taking Femalite. Honestly my body’s reaction was almost immediate. The pain literally disappeared and I was in a completely euphoric state all day. Honestly, I have not been in a mood that great since I was a child. My fiance commented that he looks forward to me being this happy before every period.

This is my second day using Femalite and I can say with confidence that I will use this product for the rest of my life!” -Alexandria, GA, USA

Femalite contains:

Foeniculum Vulgare (Sweet Fennel), Pulsatilla Vulgaris (Pasque Flower), Melissa Officinal (Lemon Balm) (more detail on these natural Herbs)

Femalite is 100% Safe, Proven and Totally Effective and can be also be used together with Dong Quai to balance hormones and to treat both the symptoms and the causes of PMS.
