Natural Home Remedies

In the world there are lots of home made remedies, some remedies work some don't work. So I have created a list which can help to understand that weather which home remedy works or not. So here we go :)

When ever it's cold many Americans go for Chicken soup and Americans believe that chicken soup helps to fight cold. But is it really that effective or just a myth ?

What To Do, When You Need Immediate Attention ?

There are times when you no one is home and you are your own in the kitchen. You are making some salad for yourself and when slicing the tomatoes you also slice your finger. Now at this time lots of question pop up in mind that weather you should apply bandage on it or go to the ER, or go to Walmart, CVS. The first thing you should do is to go to these CVS or Walmart as these also have drop-in medical clinics that can help you out with your situation as they contain nurses, physicians and even sometime doctors. In these situations they can help you out but if they think that you really need to go to ER they will tell you. If you have medical insurance, then there is chance that your medical insurance company might also contain 24/7 nurse hotline, which in many cases can become very useful. There are many who don't have any health insurance if this is the case then you can go to findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov, now this website can help you find federally funded clinic near you. Just t…

Energy Therapy: Integrative Healing For Cancer Patients

Medical patients facing a cancer diagnosis should be aware that traditional medical treatment is not their only option. Alternative therapies such as emotional freedom technique (EFT), healing touch, and intuitive bodywork have a place in cancer treatment as well.



Known as energy healing, these alternative healing therapies can benefit cancer patients in a number of important ways. They help patients cope with the emotional and spiritual aspects of living with cancer such as rare diseases like mesothelioma as well as the physical side effects (pain, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting) that can really take their toll on a person's health.

Patients typically feel a tremendous loss of control when they discover they have cancer. EFT and other healing therapies give them a renewed sense of being in control. When integrated with standard medical treatment, alternative therapies offer hope to cancer patients. Even those with the most serious cases are most likely faced with an unfavorable me…

Kidneys Which Guard Our Blood

Kidneys are most important part of our body. Kidneys purify blood and maintain chemical balance in the body. Kidneys have the ability to remove toxins and extra water in the form of Urine. Kidneys resemble to Black eye pea or bean and is almost equal to closed hand in the form of punch. Kidneys lie almost in the middle of back and below the rib cage. It's a very perfect reprocessing machine. In one day kidneys purify 200 quart of blood from toxin and extra water.

Blood gets toxicated because of food and continous work in cells. When our body gets the required food from blood, then remanings are added as discharge to blood. If kidneys don't remove this toxin, this toxin becomes poison for the body.

Kidneys filter the blood through small holes called Nephron. Each individual kidney contains 1 million Nephron's. Inside each Nephron there is web of blood tubes called Glomerulus, which is connected to Tubule ( which collects urine ). Blood is purified by passing through this co…

Responsibilities Of Patient

Whenever a patient goes to doctor, he/she has some basic responsibilities that must be kept in mind. Just like doctor has responsibility, similarly patients also have responsibilities. If you want to know about these responsibilities then keep on reading.


1. If you have an appointment with the doctor, then come on schedule. It's better to come fifteen minutes before the actual time. If by any reason you cannot come at specified time, tell the receptionist about the situation. This is to make sure that no one gets frustrated by your late coming. Many doctors don't give appointments because they know that patient will not come on time or if patient does manages to come (not on time), patient tries to get first to the doctor, which is kind of frustrating for others.

2. Doctor will ask you about your condition, which is known as taking history. You should go prepared for this. Which condition started when, you should know about it. If you think that you might forget about some spe…

Live Long By Having Mediterranean Diet

All of us must be familiar with the word "Meditate" where you try to understand yourself by sitting in a quiet room. But very less know about Mediterranean diet, and if you are woman and you are on Mediterranean diet you can live upto 15 years more and if you are a male you can expect to live 8 years more. So what is Mediterranean diet ? 
Mediterranean diet is a combination of vegetables ( any vegetable), nuts, fish, meat, olive oil, fruits along with very small amount of alcohol. If you are doing excercise daily and if you combine this basic food combination to your daily diet provided the condition that you don't smoke you can expect to live longer as much as 15 years. According to the study which was done in Netherlands at the university of Maastricht under the supervision of Piet van den brandt, who is epidemiology professor, observed almost 120,000 men and women together whose age ranged from 55 to 69 years during the year of 1986 and yes this was ten year study peri…

A new hope to treat Parkinson Disease

According to new study which is published in FASEB journal, nicotine actually helps in preventing Parkinson's disease, nicotine works by making a shield around Dopamine neurons found in brain. This is a break through because it will help to unravel the new treatments. According to the Patrick Michel, who is the joint author of institute du cerveau et de la Moelle Epiniere, Hospital de la Salpetriere, which is in Paris said that " This study will raise the hope to help the patients with Parkinson disease at an early stage or yet even at that stage where this disease is not apparent."

So in my opinion we should include some amount of nicotine in our diet through the use of coffee or tea, but not through cigarette definetely not through cigarettes. Till then stay healthy by eating healthy foods.

Smokers know that quit smoking is very difficult because of the cravings that occur which is very intense that can last up to three months, that makes them believe that it's impossible. One thing that you should keep in mind is that quitting depends on your will power and there is no other way, you can sa…
