Being sick is not a good thing at all. The experience is not a good one and no one prays to fall ill regularly. Though it looks almost impossible to prevent sickness, it is impossible.

Even if you feel that you can’t prevent it 100%, you can reduce the regularity and severity. The tips you are about to learn are real and potent.

Factor them into your daily life and you will enjoy amazing health.

How To Live A Disease-free Life

  1. Mind what you eat

A bad diet is the mother of all diseases. Your diet is everything in preventing and even treating diseases. What you eat can build up your system or wreck it.

So it depends on you to build a healthy body or a junk body. Humans are products of their thoughts, diet, and lifestyle. Health is literally “garbage in, garbage out”. What you put into your body is what you will get.

If you put in healthy and living foods, you get health and life. But if you put in dead and junk foods, you get diseases because these (diseases) are the way the body gets rid of accumulated wastes and toxins.

The first step in eating healthy is to take out dietary hazards from your diet. Some examples of dietary hazards are refined sugar and highly refined foods, synthetic seasonings and additives, food laden with preservatives and artificial colorings, refined salt, alcohol, hydrogenated oils, and any unnatural foods you can think of.

After eliminating dietary hazards, you then replace them with healthy and living foods. To prevent diseases, 80% of your diet should be whole-plant based foods.

20% can be organic animal proteins and little pleasure foods once in a while if you must indulge. And make sure you verify your meals. If you follow this strict diet rule, you will be healthy.

Even if you fall sick due to other factors, it won’t be intense and it will be very brief. If you’re the type that regularly falls ill, try working on your diet and you will see a reduction in the frequency of sickness.

  1. Detox regularly

Our bodies can clean itself and it does so regularly, even on a daily basis. But there are certain things we can do to aid this process especially if you’re still struggling in the area of your diet.

There are special detoxes you can engage in regularly. Examples are colon cleanse (you can take a purgative herb or do enema once weekly), liver cleanse, kidney cleanse, dry skin brushing, lymphatic cleanse, and juice fasts.

All these help your body repair, heal, and rejuvenate.  Alexis Carrel’s experiment on immortality showed that regular detox and intake of quality nutrients can keep your cells alive for a long time.

  1. Take raw and fermented foods

When it comes to nutrition, all foods are not equal. If you want healing and recovery, you need more raw foods. Raw foods are live foods, their enzymes and nutrients are untouched.

Most minerals and vitamins are lost through heat, enzymes are destroyed when heated, protein structures are changed, and many changes and destructions happen when we cook plant foods.

Although there are some foods we cannot eat without cooking and others need cooking to activate some enzymes in them, an example is beans. So, the best thing is to bring balance to your meals.

Raw fruits and veggies should be taken daily. Don’t take fruits and vegetables together, take them 2 -4 hours apart. If you are not treating any medical condition naturally, then try and include at least one raw meal in your diet daily.

Fermented foods are potent and superfoods. They contain healthy bacteria that make up a huge amount of your immune system. Fermented foods and drinks boost your immune system and improve your overall health.

There are also good probiotic supplements you can take to boosts your immune system and make you resistant to diseases.

  1. Expose yourself to sunlight daily

Sunlight is the freest natural cures we have. Just exposing yourself to moderate sunlight daily improves the speed and actions of your immune cells.

Sunshine also helps our mental health. It helps the body produce serotonin, the happiness hormone. A deficiency of this leads to depression and even suicidal behaviors.

It is also one of the cheapest sources of vitamin D. This vitamin/hormone plays a lot of important roles in the body, from strong bones to immune building, and even the production of hormones.

If you want to be healthy, you need to get moderate exposure to sunlight daily. You can practice sunbathing and sun gazing daily.

  1. Walk and exercise daily

A sedentary lifestyle is one of the biggest enemies of good health. The human body doesn’t like being sedentary, a lot of things go wrong in the body when you don’t move.

Include exercise and walks in your daily activities. Try and walk for 30 minutes (at least) each day. This will help you sweat and expel toxins. It also helps you take in lots of oxygen.

Exercise and working boost blood circulation and promotes cognitive functions. It even helps you sleep better at night.

  1. Get fresh air

Oxygen is life and a health quote says “he who breathes the most air lives healthiest”. All chronic diseases you can think of are anaerobic in nature and they only thrive in bodies where oxygen deficiency has been on for a long time.

Due to sedentary living and not knowing the importance of oxygen, a lot of people are constantly taking short and shallow breaths. This is not healthy.

Try and practice deep breathing many times daily. Don’t exceed your limit. Oxygen boosts your immune system and reduces your perception of pain.

Disease-causing microbes can’t thrive or spread in the presence of oxygen. Your brain depends heavily on oxygen, a few seconds without oxygen can lead to fainting or coma.

  1. Think rightly and don’t suppress emotions

There is hardly any thought you think or emotions you feel that does not show up in your body in one way or the other. Bad and negative thoughts and emotions show up as diseases while happy and positive thoughts and emotions lead to good health.

The mind and body are so closely related and that why we have the field of body-mind medicine or psychotherapy. Studies in this field have shown that all diseases start in the mind.

Suppressed anger, resentment, stony unforgiveness, loss of joy in life, and even fear have been linked to cancer, glaucoma, kidney problems, liver problems, immune dysfunction, and many more.

Always try to live at peace with all men, confront issues when you need to so you don’t have to suppress emotions. And when you’ve said your mind, don’t hold on to it again, just let it go.

Avoid people or places that make you angry. Let go of unforgiveness, anger, and resentment so that you can live in good health and enjoy peace.

  1. Surround yourself with health-conscious people

You can’t be healthy if people around you are not health-conscious. You would be tempted to cheat on your diet always, they would make it look as if you’re too hard on yourself or you’re suffering.

They won’t encourage you in your health goals. So, if you truly want to be healthy and prevent diseases by changing your diet and lifestyle, you have to be surrounded by like-minded individuals.

They will help you with your goals and make your journey smooth. They will always be around to encourage you and give support when you need it.

  1. Sleep is important

Health experts are saying we are the most sleep-deprived generation and it is showing a lot in the health of the populace. Some motivational speakers even talk people out of sleeping saying it is a waste of time and all that.

The truth is that we need sleep to be healthy and even reason and act well as humans. Every day, the body repairs and heals itself, but that is always in a state of deep sleep at night.

The more sleep-deprived you are, the more your health deteriorates. During a state of deep sleep at night, usually between 10 pm to 2 am, the body releases very powerful healing compounds.

Some examples of those healing compounds are interleukin I and II, and cytokine, a protein that helps regulate the immune system when fighting infections.

Adults who have at least 8 hours of night sleep have greater resistance against viral infections than those who sleep only three hours or less.

  1. Manage stress effectively

If you can’t avoid stress totally, you can look for effective ways to manage it. You have to do this because stress is regarded as the “silent killer”.

It is the silent root cause of chronic headaches and diseases. Walking in nature, drinking herbal teas, mediation, hot bath, praying, and deep breathing are some of the effective ways to relieve stress.

  1. Drink herbal teas

As a health-conscious individual, you should aim for at least one cup of herbal tea daily. Herbs are medicines, the first and original medicines of man.

They prevent and reverse diseases when taken rightly. Examples of herbal teas you can take are green tea, ginger tea, cinnamon, turmeric, moringa teas, etc.

They are dense in essential and non-essential nutrients, phytochemicals, and antioxidants. All these touch every aspect of your being and promote deep tissue repair and boost general wellbeing.

If you’ve experienced lost or damaged teeth, then you’ve no doubt quickly come to realise how much of a struggle it can often be to eat, especially with certain foods.

After all, the job of our teeth is to help us bite and chew, so there’s always going to be some degree of impairment when one or two get lost or sustain damage.

There are a few solutions available when it comes to missing or damaged teeth though, and each one has their merits in a number of situations.

That being said, no other solution for missing or damaged teeth can quite hold a torch to dental implants, especially when it comes to improving your ability to eat.

So if you’ve been thinking recently about taking the trip to Turkey for all of the amazing benefits you can enjoy with your dental implants, from the thousands of pounds in savings, the world-class surgeons and medical establishments, and the strict medical guidelines, to all of the amazing perks such as the luxury 5* accommodation, VIP transfers, and your own designated patient coordinator, then the following is a broad guide to walk you through everything you need to know about how you can improve your eating ability with dental implants Turkey

Dental Implants Can Help You to Chew Naturally Again if instead of going down the dental implant route you chose to go with dentures, you’d soon see how easily they can become dislodged when attempting to chew food.

Most of us are completely oblivious to the complex range of motion we employ every day when we chew, going up and down, front to back and side to side without so much as a thought.

With dentures though, you have to take the time to think and focus on a simpler up and down motion, which works for the most part, but it can never replicate the full chewing strength you had before, and it takes some getting used to.

With dental implants though, any issues such as this go right out the window, as you don’t have to think about any natural chewing technique causing them to become dislodged.

Not only does a dental implant look and feel just like the real thing, but they also act and function as the real thing too, meaning you’ll never have to worry about chewing unnaturally again.

Dental Implants Can Help to Restore any Lost Bite

There’s going to be a lot of comparison to dentures throughout this guide, and as the predominant alternative to dental implants, it won’t come as much of a surprise. When it comes to your bite though, this is an area where dentures can really fall short when compared to dental implants.

Unlike the way in which a dental implant is rooted strong and firm into the jawbone (just like a natural tooth), dentures sit on top of the gums, which aren’t supposed to support that much force. Therefore, dentures can only really recapture about 20% of your full bite potential, even if your gums have hardened up and adjusted to them.

As previously mentioned though, a dental implant is rooted and fused firmly into the jawbone, in just the same way as the rest of your natural teeth. This therefore provides a full strength bite, just like with a full set of natural teeth.

You Can Avoid Food Getting Stuck with Dental Implants

Food can very easily get stuck both underneath and to a set of dentures, and although many will be made of a special plastic to help prevent food getting stuck to them, it’ll unfortunately still be a fairly common occurrence, at least much more common than it’ll ever be with natural teeth or dental implants.

Many people who have dentures find themselves having to clean them out after meals, especially if they’ve been eating bread products. With dental implants though, you’ll have no more issues than you would’ve had with your own natural teeth.

Dental Implants Can Help You to Avoid Gum Irritation

Dentures can often make chewing somewhat irritating on the gums, or at worst even painful. The way that dentures sit on the gums puts a lot of force and stress on them when chewing, and this can easily lead to them becoming quite red and sore.

As mentioned in the last section, food can easily get trapped underneath the denture too, which can be irritating enough with soft foods, but if you’ve been eating nuts or seeds or anything jagged, this can become especially painful.

With dental implants on the other hand, food won’t be getting trapped underneath them and irritating the gums, in exactly the same way as food won’t be getting trapped underneath a natural tooth.

Even if you were to have an implant supported bridge and food were to get trapped underneath that, there’d still be less irritation due to the pressure of the bite still being directed into the implants in the jawbone, rather than to the gums.

Dental Implants can Help You to Taste Your Food Better Full upper dentures will be supported by a plate the covers the roof of the mouth, therefore covering up all of its taste buds.

It can be surprising how much of an effect this can have on our ability to taste the foods we eat, so if you were instead to replace your missing or damaged teeth with dental implants, there’ll be nothing to get in the way of all of your favourite foods, or making them taste like plastic.

The limitations when it comes to chewing with dentures can also have an impact on taste too. The altered, simpler chewing technique you’ll need to employ when wearing dentures will mean that, while you’ll be chewing food for longer, less flavour will be released than with a more natural, stronger chew.

Drinking can also be impacted too, as savouring any liquids in your mouth for too long could dislodge the dentures as they get underneath them.

What Are the Causes of Yellow Eyes? Fri, 27 Nov 2020 17:20:04 +0000 Yellow EyesYou might have heard this popular saying, “the eyes are windows of the soul”.

You might have heard this popular saying, “the eyes are windows of the soul”. This is true but not for the soul only, but a window or barometer of all parts of your body.

There are specialists well trained in eye (Iris) diagnosis and we call them iridologists. From looking at your eyes, they can see the state and health of your vital organs and know how healthy you are.

If the eyes don’t pass information about what’s going on inside the body, all these would not be possible. There are many signs the eyes give when things are going wrong in the body and one of them is yellow eyes.

This post will expose you to what yellow eyes means, the possible causes, prevention, and even effective natural treatments.

Causes of Yellow Eyes

There are many reasons why the white of the eyes turn yellow. The most common ones are:

1. Jaundice

This condition occurs when hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying compound in the blood) breaks down into bilirubin and the body cannot effectively clear the bilirubin.

The compound bilirubin is supposed to move to the bile ducts from the liver. From the bile duct, it moves to your intestines where it is passed out in your poop.

If this process is obstructed, bilirubin will build up in your skin and this will make your skin and eyes yellow. Healthy sclera should look white and not yellow.

When your sclera is yellow, it shows that there is an underlying health condition which could be a problem of the pancreas, liver, and gallbladder. Yellow eyes are a sign of organ malfunction.

One of the major causes of yellow eyes is liver problems. Your liver is a very important organ in your body with over 500 functions. Liver problems can make the sclera of the eyes yellow.

Common liver problems that can cause yellowing of the eyes are:

Liver cirrhosis (Scarring)

This is a leading cause of liver malfunctions and it can be caused by many factors. Common ones are:

  • Excessive intake of alcohol
  • Hepatitis B and C
  • Liver cancer
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Liver infection
  • Hepatitis A, D, and E but they are less common causes of jaundice.

Genetic conditions

There are some inherited conditions that can cause cirrhosis of the liver and some of them are:

  • Primary Hemochromatosis: Characterized by excess iron in the liver.
  • Wilson’s disease: Happens when excess copper lodge in the liver
  • Porphyrias: These are rare blood disorders that cause the accumulation of porphyrins. This compound is used to make red blood cells but it causes problems when it builds up in the body.

Gallbladder problems

The compound bile that helps in the breakdown and digestion of fat is produced in the liver but stored in the gallbladder. The gallbladder releases this bile for the digestion of fat.

It is connected to your liver through the bile ducts. Jaundice occurs of these bile ducts are blocked. Factors that can block the bile ducts are:

Signs that the gallbladder/bile ducts are blocked are:

Conditions that affect the pancreas can also cause yellow eyes. The pancreas is an organ responsible for producing enzymes and hormones.

Your pancreas duct and bile duct from your gallbladder join together to empty their content into your small intestines. If your pancreatic duct is inflamed, obstructed, or infected, bile will not drain properly.

When this happens, it can cause jaundice. Inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) also causes pains and discoloration of the skin.

Pancreatic cancer is also another condition that can cause yellowing of the sclera (Jaundice).

3. Blood disorders

Insufficient breakdown of red blood cells or less secretion of bilirubin can make your eyes yellow. This is the reason why medical conditions that affect how your red blood cells are produced and how long they live can cause yellowing of the eyes.

Factors that increase one’s risks of blood disorders are:

  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Incompatibility reaction after a blood transfusion
  • Drug-induced immune hemolytic anemia

The sclera is covered with a thin and clear tissue called Conjunctiva. This tissue lines the inside of your eyelids. Your eyelids contain a network of thin blood vessels.

These blood vessels can break easily or burst. When this happens, they settle between the sclera and conjunctiva and color the eyes. Of the leak is a small one, a part of your eyes will be discolored.

However, if it is a large leak, the entire part of the eyes/eye will appear bright red. On rare occasions, it causes pains and vision problems. It also causes a minor itching of the eyes.

Some causes of this condition are:

  • Eye infections
  • Trauma
  • Hard cough
  • Constipation
  • Hard sneeze
  • Forcefully rubbing your eyes
  • Vomiting
  • Lifting heavy objects

In some cases, Subconjunctival hemorrhage can be a warning sign of bleeding or blood disorders. It can also be a sign of underlying hypertension or diabetes.

A doctor can examine your eyes and rule out eye disorders or identify a cause. This will not stain your eyes permanently as your body will slowly re-absorb this.

Most hemorrhage resolve on their own within 7 days. Large ones can take up to 2 to 3 weeks to go away. The red color will turn to a yellow-orange color before going pink then white again.

5. Hemolytic Anemia

This happens when your body breaks down red blood cells too quickly. This causes anemia and makes the white of the eyes appear yellow. The level of bilirubin also increases.

6. Hyperbilirubinemia

This is an increased level of bilirubin in the body and it is produced when the body breaks down red blood cells. It is secreted in the bile and released into the small intestine to digest fats.

Then it is finally released through stools. When excess red blood cells are broken down, the levels of bilirubin in the blood quickly shoot up and this can cause jaundice.

Liver disease can also increase the levels of bilirubin in the blood.

7. Alcoholism

Excessive intake of alcohol can damage your liver and increases your risks of developing fatty or alcoholic liver disease. Liver diseases are the leading causes of jaundice.

The first step in treating this condition is to quit drinking.

8. Leptospirosis

This is an infection caused by the bacterium Leptospira genus. People with this infection develop yellow eyes. It is transmitted when you come in contact with water contaminated with animal urine and it is also common in warmer climates.

Along with yellow eyes, people with leptospirosis also develop a sore throat, cough, stomach pain, headache, swollen lymph nodes, and muscle pains. In some cases, infected individuals develop a swollen spleen or liver.

9. Certain medications

Some drugs/medications cause yellow eyes as side effects. Examples are:

When malaria parasites enter your body, they break or damage your red blood cells and your spleen or liver get to filter these out. Excess red blood cell breakdown can cause jaundice and anemia.

11. Cancer

Cancer can cause yellowing of the eyes, especially these types of cancers.

  • Liver cancer: Due to the inability of the bile duct or bile cells to perform its functions, the handling of bilirubin is affected. It builds up in the bloodstream and causes jaundice.
  • Gallbladder cancer: This is a rare form of cancer and it doesn’t cause any symptoms until the cancer cells spread or the tumor grows large. When the tumor grows big, it blocks the bile ducts and causes jaundice.
  • Pancreatic cancer: Tumors in the pancreas press on the bile ducts and if bile can’t drain properly, bilirubin builds up and jaundice occurs.

Also, cancer can spread to the liver and also cause jaundice.

12. Yellow fever

Yellow fever is a severe flu-like disease spread by mosquitoes and it causes high fever and jaundice. Apart from the yellowing of the eyes, yellow fever also causes yellow skin.

The organs most affected by yellow fever are the kidneys and the liver. Treatment of this condition reverses yellow eyes.

Other Symptoms Accompanying Yellow Eyes

Yellow eyes don’t just happen alone. It comes with other symptoms due to buildup of bilirubin like:

Effective Home Remedies For Yellow Eyes  

The first thing to do when you notice yellow eyes is to upgrade your diet. Make it richer in nutrients so that your body can overcome this condition. You should take out dietary hazards and include lots of potent foods in your daily meals.

Dietary hazards you should eliminate from your diet are alcohol, fried foods, refined sugar, processed foods, salty foods, excess animal protein, synthetic seasonings, and unnatural chemicals and food additives.

Potent healing foods you should include in your diet are:  

Barley water

Barley has wonderful diuretic properties that help flush out toxins and excess bilirubin from the body through urine. It’s highly effective for yellow eyes.

Add a tablespoon of roasted barley seed powder to a glass of warm water, mix well using a spoon, and drink. You can add honey if you please, but ensure you drink it immediately, don’t keep it for later.

People with a gluten allergy should avoid this remedy as barley contains gluten.

Lemon balm tea

Lemon balm is different from lemon, it is only associated with lemon because of its mild lemon aroma. Its healing properties benefit the liver immensely.

It increases all your internal organs and increases the production of bile in the body. This herb boosts liver functions and also and reduces the concentration/circulation of bilirubin in the bloodstream.

It also reverses eye discoloration. Make lemon balm tea using either fresh or dried organic leaves of lemon balm. Take this tea three times daily to reverse yellow eyes and support your liver health.

Milk thistle

Milk Thistle

This herb is well known for its liver-detoxing properties and medicinal properties. It promotes optimal functions of the liver. It boosts the formation of enzymes and increases bile production.

Milk thistle reverses liver damage caused by certain medications. It also gets rid of yellow eyes. Make milk thistle tea by blending milk thistle seeds, fennel seeds, and peppermint seeds together.

This will boost the benefits of milk thistle. Grind these seeds until you get a coarse mixture, pour in a cup. Add hot water, cover, and allow to steep for 10 minutes.

Negative emotions like anger and fear put the liver under immense pressure and that can affect its functions. This can lead to excess production of bile and yellow eyes.

Look for peaceful ways to deal with emotional problems and learn to let go of things that you cannot control. Look for ways to be in peace always even if it includes leaving a bad job or relationship.

Don’t bottle up emotions. Deal with issues and look for ways to uplift your spirit.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D deficiency leads to Jaundice in both children and adults. Increase your levels of vitamin D and your yellow eyes will go away. One effective way to increase your levels of Vitamin D is to expose yourself to moderate sunlight.

  • Fever
  • Feeling exhausted always
  • Darkening of skin color and other changes
  • Losing weight for no reason
  • Muscle pain and abnormal joint pain
  • Abdominal swelling or swelling of the legs
  • Pale stools
  • Dark urine

Can Excess Vitamin A Cause Yellow Eyes?

There are lots of misconceptions out there about the yellowing of the eyes and one of these is that certain foods, especially those rich in vitamin A triggers the yellowing of the eyes.

Well, this is not true as they are no studies verifying some of these claims. Eating excess foods that are high in vitamin A can cause yellowing of the skin, not the eyes. Examples of these foods are carrots, melons, and squash.

These foods can affect the color of the skin when taken in excess but they can’t change the color of the eyes. Yellow eyes only occur when there is excess bilirubin in the bloodstream.

Most times, jaundice is an indication of an underlying health problem. But it could also be caused by a temporal buildup of bilirubin in the bloodstream.

It can also be caused by nutritional deficiencies like vitamin B12 deficiency. A lack of Vitamin B12 in the body causes changes in the production of red blood cells and this can lead to the yellowing of the eyes.

Once the underlying issue is treated, the yellow eyes go away.

Yellow Eyes in Infants And How To Handle It

A lot of newborns have jaundice (neonatal jaundice) due to a minor and temporal buildup of bilirubin. Along with yellow eyes, you may also notice sleepiness, poor feeding, and yellow skin.

This has to be handled medically because high levels of bilirubin can cause hearing loss, brain damage, and even seizures. Babies eliminate excess bilirubin through their poop.

Breastfed your baby well, at least 8 times a day because breast milk has a mild laxative effect. Special lights can also be used to help your baby’s body eliminate extra bilirubin.

Side Effects Some People May Experience After a Vaccine Tue, 24 Nov 2020 18:46:40 +0000 VaccineVaccines were developed as a permanent solution to certain diseases, including tetanus, chickenpox, and flu.

Vaccines were developed as a permanent solution to certain diseases, including tetanus, chickenpox, and flu. These are typically a dose of the active viruses and microorganisms that can develop acquired immunity against infectious diseases.

Similar to drugs, some side effects have been noticed after vaccines were administered to patients. According to Victoria state’s Better Health Channel, the frequency of these side effects is one to ten in a hundred immunized people.

People of different ages may experience different symptoms, and at varying levels of severity. These side effects aren’t usually life-threatening, but require adequate knowledge to know when to consult a doctor.

Here are five side effects people may experience after getting a vaccine:

Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Shortened as GBS, this syndrome is an autoimmune disease that causes the body’s immune system to work counteractively against the nervous system. Its symptoms vary in severity and include swallowing difficulties, eyesight problems, tingling sensations, and deteriorating coordination.

This condition can progress relatively fast, such as within the first two weeks of noticing the initial symptoms of the disease. This can cause the eventual death of certain patients. Health professionals advise that if you notice the combination of the said symptoms, you should get medical attention immediately.

This disease’s primary cause is widely unknown, but some of the identified triggers include trauma, hepatitis A, B, C, E, HIV, Zika virus, flu, and flu vaccines. Read more about GBS and its association with vaccines here.

Swelling And Redness Around Vaccine Shot

Redness occurs when some individuals receive a vaccine shot due to skin sensitivity. After the vaccine is administered, there’s usually a mild irritation, which results in skin redness.

This is accompanied by mild irritation and swelling. These reactions usually last between two and seven days. Doctors recommend that you seek medical attention when you notice an allergic reaction. This is because these symptoms can be an indicator of a more serious problem.

If you think you’re allergic to ingredients such as formaldehyde and aluminum salts, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about getting a flu shot that doesn’t contain any of those ingredients.

In some cases, a doctor may recommend that you get a flu shot through a nasal spray. This contains only the actual virus, and none of the ingredients that cause an allergic reaction. However, nasal sprays don’t always provide complete protection.


Fever is another common vaccine side effect. This symptom may start within several hours after the vaccine was administered, and will go away after some days without intervention.

The severity of the fever depends on your body’s immune system, but it requires further medical attention if it persists for more than three days.

In fewer cases, the vaccine-induced fever is due to an allergic body reaction to the vaccine. Allergies are common among children, but adults may also suffer from them in rare instances. Other side effects associated with vaccine-induced fever are restlessness, drowsiness, and loss of appetite.

Muscle And Joint Aches

People who have weak immune systems or allergies may experience muscle pains after receiving a vaccine. The muscles can also experience temporary swelling, accompanied by skin redness.

Other symptoms include back, thigh, and neck pains. The swelling caused by the muscle pain may last from a few hours to a few days, depending on the muscle pain severity.

To help alleviate muscle pains caused by a vaccine injection, it’s recommended to rest for three hours after receiving injections. The injection spot will heal within a couple of weeks, and all the symptoms will be eliminated. 

Fatigue And Headache

It’s not uncommon for people to complain of tiredness after taking a vaccine. According to Medical News Today, this is a natural body response to use all available energy to build its immunity.

Also, the Center for Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) estimates one out of four recipients will experience tiredness.

Headache and fatigue are closely associated, and vaccine recipients may develop headaches after getting a vaccine. Medical doctors don’t consider this pair of side effects life-threatening, and they only prescribe pain relievers to combat the headache.


Vaccines provide the necessary prevention to certain infectious diseases, but they also come with side effects. The rarest side effect is Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which affects the nervous system of vaccine recipients.

Redness and swelling around the vaccine injection point is the commonest side effect of vaccines. Fever is identified as a possible side effect in persons with allergic reactions.

Muscle and joint aches can also develop after vaccine administration. Lastly, fatigue and headaches can also develop as the body overworks itself to build up its immune system.

How to Fit Incontinence Pads and Prevent Leakage Tue, 24 Nov 2020 14:02:58 +0000 Incontinence PadsIf you suffer from urinary incontinence, accidents and leaks can be a major source for stress, anxiety, and even self-consciousness.

If you suffer from urinary incontinence, accidents and leaks can be a major source for stress, anxiety, and even self-consciousness. Learning how to fit incontinence pads and prevent leakage can be a big step in the right direction.

Many adults suffer in silence because they are embarrassed to admit that they are incontinent – but adult incontinence is nothing to be ashamed of. In the United States, one in two women and one in four men suffer from some form of incontinence.

Finding the right incontinence pad that fits correctly is an important way to prevent leaks and help you continue enjoying your regular activities.

Knowing how to find the right fit can take a lot of the stress out of living with incontinence, but since everyone has a different body type and set of needs, this can become a trial-and-error process. Having an idea in mind on how to properly fit a pad can help save you a lot of time, money, and effort.

There are three main factors that help you determine how to fit incontinence pads and prevent leakage: size, absorbency, and style. When you understand each of these factors, you can easily find the right product for you.

Understanding Your Size

When it comes to size, every manufacturer of adult incontinence products tends to be a little bit different. Some measure by the length of the pad itself, while others measure by hip and waist size.

That’s where size guides come in handy. When you have your own measurements on hand, you can easily match them with the size chart provided by your adult incontinence pad supplier’s website. If you’re buying the products in person, you can sometimes find this chart in the aisle or on the product packaging.

You’ll need to know your waist size and your hip size to get the right fit. To measure your waist size, take a tape measure and wrap it around your waist just above belly button level. Keep it straight and make sure it’s not too tight.

To get your hip size, wrap the tape measure around the largest part of your hips, where they begin to curve. Once you have these measurements ready and recorded, you can match them to the size charts and get the right fit.

Determining Absorbency

Absorbency is equally as important when choosing an adult incontinence pad. You need to make sure you’re choosing a product that’s made for the amount of leakage you experience.

On most product packages, absorbency is represented by droplet icons. The more icons there are, the heavier the absorbance is. 

Here is a general summary of the absorbency levels you’ll come across, from light to heavy:

  • Thin or light, represented by one or one and a half droplets: ideal for light leakage, or a few dribbles at a time per leak.
  • Moderate, represented by one to three droplets: ideal for handling a light to moderate amount of dribbling per leak.
  • Ultimate or max absorbency, represented by three to four droplets: usually longer in length and ideal for absorbing moderate dribbles.
  • Super, ultra, or maximum, represented by four to five droplets: ideal for heavy leakage, usually used for overnight protection.

In general, incontinence pads are less absorbent than adult diapers and meant for those with lighter, more manageable leakage. For this reason, most pads come in thin or light absorbency.

If you regularly experience heavier leaks, you’ll want to consider something with more protection and coverage, like an adult diaper or adult incontinence underwear.

Choosing Your Style

The last thing to think about is your preferred style of adult incontinence pad. This part is entirely based on your own personal preferences and the type of underwear and clothing you prefer to wear.

Incontinence pads come in many different styles and shapes, from basic rectangular shapes to shaped styles designed to fit into tighter-fitting women’s panties.

Some also come fragrance free for more sensitive skin, and others feature top-level odor guard technology to keep you smelling fresh even if you’ve had an accident.

Once you’ve figured out all three of these categories, you can choose an incontinence pad that fits ideally for your lifestyle, personal preferences, and body type. With the right fit, you can easily get back to your life and enjoy every activity you love.

CBD Flower vs. CBG Flower Mon, 23 Nov 2020 14:42:17 +0000 CBD Flower vs. CBG FlowerSmoking or vaping CBD-rich hemp flower is rapidly becoming one of the most popular ways to use CBD.

Smoking or vaping CBD-rich hemp flower is rapidly becoming one of the most popular ways to use CBD. Inhaling CBD offers quick, intense effects, and CBD flower is one of the simplest and most natural types of CBD products on the market.

Recently, breeders have developed phenotypes of Cannabis sativa that contain high concentrations of cannabigerol (CBG) and low concentrations of every other cannabinoid.

While similar to CBD in certain ways, CBG is entirely unique, and inhaling this cannabinoid in flower form might provide impressive benefits.

What is CBD flower?

CBD flowers are buds from Cannabis sativa plants that have been bred to be high in CBD and low in THC. Every CBD product on the market ultimately comes from CBD flower, but in most cases, CBD-rich hemp is grown outdoors, and it often contains CBD concentrations under 10%.

It’s also possible to produce CBD flower using methods that result in high-potency, artisan buds that are designed to be smoked, not processed into extracts.

This type of CBD flower, also called “smokable hemp,” has exploded in popularity since 2019, and a select group of producers now offer manicured buds, high-potency pre-rolls, and even thick cigars that contain artisan-quality CBD flower.

While the effects of CBD are considerably more potent and immediate when this cannabinoid is inhaled in flower form, CBD flower remains non-intoxicating and non-addictive.

CBD flower is gaining popularity equally among veteran cannabis smokers, dedicated CBD consumers, and new entrants to the market who are on the hunt for the best ways to use CBD.

What is CBG flower?

CBG flower is essentially the same thing as CBD flower but with the dominant cannabinoids switched. Like CBD flower, CBG flower contains less than 0.3% THC, and certain hemp producers offer high-quality, artisan forms of CBG flower.

It took over 10 years to breed CBD flower to produce its current maximum concentration of approximately 25%. It will likely be just as long until CBG flower is available at similar potencies.

Currently, the most potent strains of CBG flower contain around 15% CBG, but that’s still plenty of potency to discover the benefits of cannabigerol for yourself.

Differences between CBD and CBG

From a chemical perspective, CBD and CBG are relatively similar. In fact, it’s possible to make the argument that CBG is similar to almost every other cannabinoid due to its origins.

CBG is the decarboxylated form of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). This carboxylic acid turns into CBG when exposed to heat, but it can also transform into tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), cannabichromenic acid (CBCA), or a variety of other cannabinoid precursors when exposed to certain enzymes.

Even though CBD and CBG have shared origins, that’s not to say these two cannabinoids are the same. In fact, CBD and CBG have remarkably distinct chemical structures, and they interact with the body in unique ways.

Research into CBD has primarily centered around this cannabinoid’s potential to prevent epilepsy, reduce chronic pain, and treat affect disorders like anxiety and depression. Studies into CBG, on the other hand, have examined this cannabinoid’s potential to relieve gastrointestinal conditions and offer antimicrobial benefits.

In terms of perceived effects, CBD and CBG each provide non-intoxicating, calming benefits. People who have smoked both cannabinoids, however, can note clear differences between their effects.

While CBD is strongly relaxing to the point of being almost sedative, CBG tends to provide a somewhat energetic state of mental calm.

Which type of hemp flower is right for you?

People who are attempting to treat specific illnesses or disorders might be better off choosing one particular type of hemp flower or another.

CBD flower, for instance, is remarkably popular among people with chronic pain or anxiety. Consumers are more likely to choose CBG flower, on the other hand, if they suffer from gastrointestinal conditions like irritable bowel disease (IBD) or Crohn’s disease.

For relatively healthy individuals who simply want to explore the full potential of the Cannabis sativa plant, it would be ideal to try both CBD flower and CBG flower.

As the more developed product, CBD flower offers incredible potency and variety. As a newcomer to the industry, however, CBG flower is an exotic option that the hemp community is only now starting to discover.

For a truly unique experience, try using CBD flower and CBG flower at the same time. Procure buds of both varieties, grind them together, and enjoy the power of the entourage effect as CBD and CBG blend in your body to provide boosted benefits.

Who is a Pharmacist and Their Function Fri, 20 Nov 2020 09:31:00 +0000 PharmacistA pharmacist often works in a pharmacy and is responsible for the distribution of prescription drugs.

A pharmacist often works in a pharmacy and is responsible for the distribution of prescription drugs. A pharmacist has drug experience and will educate members of the public on this topic and can also provide recommendations on over-the-counter treatments that can be bought for mild illnesses or non-serious diseases such as a cold.

Relevant speciality pharmacists are also available, some of whom are veterinary, oncology, pharmaceutical, nuclear, consultant and industrial. Others may specialize in pharmaceutical industry research, research new drugs, and other aspects of health and nutrition.

What does a Pharmacist do?

The pharmacist is always the first calling point for someone with a minor illness or in the initial stages of a disease, and appropriate advice is given. Prescribing power has been granted to community pharmacists in a few countries now, especially in Europe.

This implies that after a short consultation with a patient, some drugs can be administered by the pharmacist. Additional criteria are also requested of the pharmacist to be permitted to prescribe some medications.

More precise drug measurements and preparations are included in the work of hospital pharmacies. For example, they verify prescribed dosage estimates based on the patient’s weight and ensuring that the correct dose is given.

Hospital pharmacies focus on stronger and more severe medications more frequently than local pharmacies do and offer a critical service within the hospital. Generally speaking, all pharmacists have extensive knowledge of medicines and, depending on their chosen speciality or field of practice, can apply this in various ways.

What is a pharmacist’s workplace like?

A pharmacist’s workplace may differ based on the area of specialization. A pharmacy is usually a small store or a small department within a supermarket or larger drugstore where the pharmacist works closely with vending machines and sales associates.

A pharmacist has a very social role and works with several different individuals, including clients and drug reps, every day in the workplace. Pharmacies may get busy, and it would be beneficial to be able to function quickly when under pressure.

Hospital pharmacies are much quieter and less busy as there are fewer individuals to interact with daily and only medication to be given. Patients usually see a doctor in a hospital, so there is no need for consultations from the pharmacist.

The atmosphere will also differ in a research situation. There may be a lot of contact with patients participating in clinical trials, or with drug makers and regulators, or there may be quiet research labs.

There is ample variety within the field to choose a specialization that will allow the pharmacist to work in the setting that is ideally suited to his or her personality.

Frequently asked questions

Why are there pharmacists and why can’t a physician do their job?

Pharmacists know what there is to know about prescription medicine since they are specialists in pharmacy. The average pharmacist knows far more than the average physician about medications, so it’s just not the realm of a physician.

There is a lot more to the career of a pharmacist than just printing tags and drug counting. A pharmacist can double-check to be sure that the medicine a doctor has prescribed to a patient does not interfere with any medications that the patient might be taking, since anyone can make a mistake.

It is not uncommon for a pharmacist to call the doctor to check the dose, as it is possible to write the wrong quantity, resulting in a dosage that is either too small or too big

They will make dosage changes, review the calculations of chemotherapy, and will effectively serve as a gatekeeper between the patient and the interactions of harmful drugs.

A pharmacist also deals with many time-consuming tasks, such as ordering products, working out problems with insurance agencies, and coping with the many issues of regulatory enforcement.

Doctors are delighted that there is a division of labour so that they can focus on treating their patients.

What are the advantages of being a pharmacist?

One of the most significant benefits of being a pharmacist is that you will do much more than most careers, more than a teacher, a social worker, or even a nurse. Following the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, salaries begin from $89,000 and go up to $147,350.

Another advantage is job stability. Pharmaceutical jobs are in demand and are projected to rise faster than normal in the future. Yet another benefit is that pharmacists will also provide reviews on the side effects of medication and the efficacy of a medicine. This knowledge can be used in drug engineering and scientific and medical advances.

At times, the work can be very stressful, but it’s less stressful than other medical jobs. You can build relationships with regular customers over a period if you work in a small group, and see their success when you work with them.

What is it like being a pharmacist?

The work of the pharmacist is a vital one which needs close attention to detail. A typical day can include medication checking and dispensing, compounding medication, interacting with doctors, providing pharmaceutical information to patients, providing health advice to patients, explaining the proper use of drugs, supervising staff/pharmacy technicians, and more.

Pharmacists will sometimes have to deal with an angry or disrespectful person, but this is not a common occurrence. Although the duties of a pharmacist can differ considerably, each day is reasonably equivalent and involves routine work. Days can be long, and most of those hours will be spent standing (occasionally twelve hours).

You will most likely have to work on weekends, evenings, and some holidays if you work for a retail/community pharmacy. There are more predictable working arrangements for hospital pharmacies. You will be able to set your working days if you own a pharmacy.

How long does it take to become a pharmacist?

Becoming a pharmacist takes approximately six to eight years. All aspiring pharmacists are expected to receive a Pharmacy Doctorate (PharmD) through an approved doctoral program by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). Students would be expected to complete a four-year bachelor’s degree in health sciences to join the PharmD.

Incorporating classwork with clinical practice, pharmacy programs typically take four years. Several schools offer an accelerated three-year program, while others, according to the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, offer a “0 to 6” program.

This program accepts high school graduates for a six-year program that incorporates pharmacy prerequisites with technical education.

Steps to becoming a Pharmacist

There are some clear academic qualifications involved to become a pharmacist. Qualifications and basic standards for training differ from country to country.

An undergraduate bachelor of science degree, followed by a postgraduate pharmacy course, is usually required. The courses may be related in some countries such as the UK, and the full MPharm (Master of Pharmacy) certification may be acquired after five years of pharmacy training (four undergraduate years plus one master’s year).

For entry into a postgraduate pharmacy course in other countries ( like the USA and Australia), undergraduate studies or an undergraduate degree in a science course are needed. Then, at least 2 years of postgraduate study are required. In the US, this results in qualification for a PharmD (Doctor of Pharmacy).

Most countries then require newly trained pharmacists to work a “pre-registration” year, or an internship, after meeting the academic requirements to obtain the experience needed for the job.

The number of required hours varies according to the country, and even within the USA by state. There are typically further examinations after the job experience has been completed.

These can take the form of a licensing test or a registration exam, based on the requirements of a particular country. Some countries also mandate that pharmacists engage in continuing professional development (CPD) programmes as they advance through their careers.

This means that like current science and new drugs, they remain up-to-date on all facets of the job.

Tips for pharmacist students

Volunteering or applying for a position as a pharmacy technician is among the best ways to find out if pharmacy is the right career choice for you. For your resume, it is necessary to have some job experience, and at the same time, it will extend your awareness of what the profession means.

There are several things you can do to get the most from school if you do decide that pharmacy is for you. A few apparent tips are that you attend classes and take the right notes. Surprisingly, quite a few students do not go to class daily and feel they will catch up later.

Unfortunately, this would only worsen the success of your studies, so try to make it a tradition to go to all your lessons. Take detailed, clear and structured notes when you’re in class. If permitted, document your class lecture, so you can go back and refer to the lecture if needed.

If you need clarification about the subject, ask questions. This tells the professor that you’re interested, and keeps you alert in the classroom. If you’re the shy type, write down the question and ask the professor if you can chat or connect by email with him/her one-on-one.

Balance your time yourself. Juggling with education, assignments, research, jobs, and extracurricular activities can be daunting. Try typing notes in a study guide or listening to recorded lectures the day after class. Stop cramming for an exam. Instead, study the content regularly.

A rule of thumb is that for every hour of class, you can study for two to three hours. Stress is inevitable, particularly in pharmacy school, but try to eat reasonably well, exercise, take breaks, and maintain a daily sleeping routine.

If you are researching professions and contemplating becoming a pharmacist, make sure that in order to make an informed and educated decision, you obtain as much knowledge as possible beforehand.

This […]]]> Dental Extraction

Tooth extraction is a complicated procedure that should only be carried out by a qualified and licensed dentist. If you are contemplating getting one or your dentist or primary care physician has recommended it, it is best to know what the procedure entails and what you are up against in case something goes wrong.

This article focuses on common complications of tooth extraction, along with their causes and risk factors.

1. Nerve injury

Nerve injuries are quite rare compared to other tooth extraction complications, and their damage is temporary in most cases. Sufferers of nerve injuries following a tooth extraction may experience numbness and a tingling sensation in the lower lip, chin, gums, teeth, and tongue.

Severe nerve injuries can interfere with one’s daily activities and even lower their productivity at work. The good thing is that you can seek compensation from the practice’s insurance company if the injury occurred through no fault of your own.

Medical malpractice lawyers such as the team at Tinker Law Firm can help investigate your case, estimate the value of your loss, prepare a compensation claim, and represent you in court if the case goes to litigation.

2. Dry socket

A dry socket occurs when a blood clot doesn’t form or is dislodged prematurely after an extraction. Dry sockets can be incredibly painful as they leave underlying nerves exposed.

Telltale signs to watch out for include a visible bone at the bottom of the void, unpleasant taste, bad breath, and pain between the socket and the ear, eye, neck, or temple.

Common risk factors for the complication include cigarette smoking, oral contraceptives, infections, past dry sockets, and poor at-home care.

3. Bone infection

A bone infection is another highly uncommon complication that occurs after tooth extraction.

Clinically known as osteomyelitis, the condition usually starts with the wound coming into contact with bacteria before spreading to the jawbone.

It is a serious condition, especially if not detected and treated early and can show symptoms such as redness or warmth, tenderness or swelling around the site of extraction, and fever. If you suspect you have a bone infection, inform your dentist about it as soon as possible.

Most bone infections occur as a result of botched procedures, so it is wise to entrust the extraction procedure with a dentist you trust.

4. Excessive bleeding

After tooth extraction, the area will bleed and clot after a few minutes. However, for some patients, a clot doesn’t form, or the bleeding goes on for up to 12 hours in what is known as PEB or post-extraction bleeding. Incessant bleeding can cause the patient distress and even call for emergency follow-up care.

Wrong medication and an underlying systemic disease are some of the most common culprits behind PEB.

5. Incomplete tooth removal

As the name suggests, incomplete tooth removal occurs when the dentist fails to remove the entire tooth during extraction.

The remnants may cause pain and bleeding and create a channel for infections. For this reason, patients must go back to a dentist to have the residuals removed upon detection of incomplete extraction.

The process of removing tooth residuals is often straightforward, but the dentist may have to perform additional procedures to fast-track clotting since the initial clot has to be dislodged.

6. Bisphosphonates

Osteonecrosis of the jaw is a condition characterized by rotting of the jawbones that occurs if the patient is using drugs to treat or prevent conditions like multiple myeloma, osteoporosis, or bone cancer prior to the operation.

It is believed that bisphosphonates target the underlying bone and compromise the working of cells charged with breaking it down. Avoid teeth extraction as much as you can if you are using any osteoporosis.

It is also advisable to provide your dentist with all your medical records to help them formulate an extraction plan with past procedures and medications in mind.


A typical tooth extraction site takes at most seven days to heal. Complications can slow down the progress and cause serious, potentially irreversible damage to the jawbone and surrounding tissue and teeth.

Watch out for the above complications and inform your dentist if you suspect you have any of them. More importantly, ensure your tooth is extracted by a dentist with a good reputation whose practice is licensed and insured.

Life is moving very fastly, and the experiences regarding technology are increasing day by day. The more we are moving to comfort, the more we get weak.

Therefore the irregularities in human life are growing. That is what health issues are arising worldwide. We have forgotten the limits of eating. This Covid-19 virus is also a result of mishandling and worst eating habits.

Also, the number of diseases are increasing day by day. So it is compulsory to have Medicare supplement plans to get ready financially to beat the health issues. Here today, we will discuss some reasons that would let you buy an insurance plan for yourself and your family.

So let’s start with it;

Increasing disease

As I mentioned above, the changing lifestyle and human attitude are causing certain types of diseases. We are unable to tackle them as we don’t have any proper system of management.

Also, increasing conditions demand the most modern solution. Therefore vaccines or medicines are going to be costly. So, it could be your first excuse to buy health insurance.

24hours claiming facility

 Humans are physically uncertain as an electric device. You don’t know when and where you fell ill or got severe pain in your stomach or head. Now let’s consider, you have a severe injury from a road accident at midnight. At that time, you have no money to get cured.

Therefore, at this time, calling an insurance company would help you out. So buying insurance is helpful at any time and place.

Big families

Big families don’t always mean you have five to ten children. Supporting your parents, children, and partner is enough to have a big family on your shoulders. As the diseases increase from time to time, it is not affordable to remedy all family members, especially from the middle class.

Get rid of consultation charges

We all have faced this issue that in OPDs, we must pay a fee even if we doubt illness or have a test. Therefore, it became a repentable act when we have nothing and paid for a trial or consultation.

Also, in these years, even medical specialists are increasing their rates. So if you want to get rid of it, purchase a health plan.

We are living an irregular life. Nothing is maintained and checked, whether it is beneficial or not. The eating habits are one of those irregularities.

We don’t care about what we are eating and how it would impact our bodies. Especially at a young age, we eat fast food and do dirty things.

All these irregular eating habits could lead you toward health issues and severe disease. In the coming year, it wouldn’t be more comfortable for anyone to handle medical expenses.

The increasing rates of medicine are becoming a headache for the middle class and lower class people. Therefore, having an insurance plan is always helpful for you and your family.

So basically, health insurance is a way of protecting your health expenses by paying monthly premiums. During insurance, whenever you feel ill, the insurance company would pay for your medical expenses.

Therefore purchasing Medicare supplement plans 2021 is helpful for you. Also, some types of insurance would be beneficial for you to learn.

Individual insurance plan

It is a type of insurance plan in which you have to purchase an individual policy, and you would be paying for it. There would be a certain amount of monthly premiums that you have to pay.

Consequently, if you would be ill or any other medical issues, the company would fulfill all expenditures. The amount of this insurance plan and its period would be done on criteria of consumer’s age and their medical record.

Family floater health insurance plan

As many insurance packages could be available at your ease, so family floater is one of them. You may get the info by reading the headline that it is a whole family insurance plan for parents, children, and wives.

So you can get one program for all family members. However, it’s period, and premiums amount may be more than the individual plan.

It’s a premium amount, and the period would be done by having the age details of the most younger family member.

Group health cover plan (GHCP)

This is the most availed insurance policy by all employers. It is a type of insurance in which an employer or entrepreneur purchases insurance for all employees.

The premium of this plan is lower than in an individual project. Also, it has more benefits than other insurance plans. That’s why most European business owners or restaurant owners avail this insurance policy for their employees.

There are also other types of insurance plans, for example, SCHI, CIHC, STP. But these are basic plans which everyone wants to purchase. In my opinion, it would be helpful for you to buy health insurance for yourself as well as your family to meet the medical expenses.
