What is Impotence?
Impotence or erectile dysfunction is the consistent inability to achieve or maintain an erection. While it is quite normal to struggle to sustain an erection from time to time, it can become a problem when this becomes a regular occurrence. Impotence is very common and approximately 10 to 15 million American men are trying to cope with this type of sexual dysfunction.

Men who suffer from impotence may either be unable to achieve an erection at all, may have difficulty maintaining it for more than a brief period of time, or their ability to sustain an erection can be variable, being able to on certain occasions and on other occasions not all.

Impotence is largely due to a lack of blood flow ( poor circulation) to the penis that results in the inability to achieve or maintain an erection leading to poor or unachievable sexual performance. This condition is often very difficult and embarrassing for men to discuss because their sexual performance is usually considered an indication of their virility.

It can also affect personal relationships, especially those with your partner, and can lead to a loss of intimacy, conflict, anxiety, added stress and even anger.

An erection usually occurs as a result of sensory or mental sexual stimulation but it may also occur spontaneously, often at night during erotic dreams. When a man is sexually stimulated, nerve signals trigger the flow of blood from the arteries into the spongy tissue of the penis.

The blood creates pressure causing the penis to expand and become erect. When the penis muscles contract to stop the inflow of blood and open outflow channels, the erection subsides. If there is any interference with the nerve signals or blood flow responsible for activating erections, impotence may occur.

Symptoms and Signs of Impotence
The symptoms of impotence may range from mild to severe. Men with mild symptoms of impotence may achieve an erection occasionally. They may have difficulty engaging in intercourse because the erection cannot be sustained. Very often the erect penis is not long, hard or elevated enough for penetration. Some men may stop having erections during sleep or upon awakening. Others with low testosterone levels may develop enlarged breasts, raised voice pitch, shrinking testes, loss of energy and muscle mass. Men suffering from severe impotence are rarely able to achieve an erection.

Diagnosing Impotence
The diagnosis of impotence is based on a physical examination as well as symptom history. A thorough examination of the man’s genitals may be performed to assess the function of the nerves and blood vessels that supply the genitals.

An examination of the rectum may also indicate if there is a problem with the nerve supply to the penis. Blood tests will also be able to help to determine whether certain diseases such as diabetes or infection are the cause of impotence. To check for any blockage within the arteries of the penis, an ultrasound examination may be performed.

What Causes Impotence?
There are many physical and psychological factors that may contribute to impotence.

Physical factors include disorders that decrease blood flow or narrow arteries, cause neurological damage and reduced energy levels.

Physical factors include:

Blood clot
Heart and vascular disease
Kidney disease
Spinal disease
Multiple sclerosis
Peripheral nerve disorders
Low levels of testosterone
Drug abuse
Certain prescription or recreational drugs
Physical inactivity

Psychological factors

Performance anxiety
Fear of intimacy
Previous sexual abuse or rape
Ambivalence about sexual orientation

Help for Impotence
There are a wide variety of treatment options available for erectile dysfunction.

Natural Remedies

There are also a number of natural and holistic treatments such as nutritional supplements, herbal remedies and acupuncture that are highly effective in treating impotence. A variety of herbs have been identified as having strong aphrodisiac properties along with the ability to improve sexual functioning and overall systemic health.

Herbs such as Epimedium grandiflorum, also known as Horny Goats Weed are natural sexual stimulators that encourage performance and testosterone production. Tribulus terristis contains aphrodisiac properties and also promotes muscle strength and prowess.

One of the most well known herbs, Eleutherococcus senticosis which is also known as Siberian ginseng, promotes male or 'yang' energy, aids circulation, supports natural vitality and also acts as an overall systemic supporter.

In addition, Smilax ornata (also known as Sarsaparilla) is used as a supportive tonic for male genital development while Kola vera combats fatigue and increases energy levels. Be sure to source your natural remedies from reputable companies to ensure maximum safety, efficacy and therapeutic dosage.

Conventional Medicine
Medications such as Viagra and Sildenafil increase blood flow to the penis which enhances sexual performance.

Although these drugs can help to treat the problem, they have some adverse side effects which include headache, upset stomach, flushing and vision problems and even cardiovascular problems.

More serious conditions such as low blood pressure and heart attacks may occur as a result of these side effects. Men may also choose to have drugs injected or inserted into the penis which widen the arteries that supply blood to the penis.

For men who have abnormally low testosterone levels, testosterone replacement therapy may help to correct the hormone deficiency. Less expensive treatments such as constriction (binding) and vacuum devices can also be used to achieve erections.

In more severe cases when impotence does not respond to treatments, surgery may be required. A device that simulates an erection (prosthesis) can be surgically implanted in the penis. Psychological therapy and counseling may also benefit men suffering from impotence. In cases where impotence has a physical cause, therapy can still be very helpful as it improves mental and emotional factors that contribute to impotence.

Certain types of therapy techniques such as psychotherapy can help the man suffering from depression or anxiety about sexual performance.

Tips for coping with Impotence
Eat a healthy, balanced diet that is rich in fresh vegetables, fruit and fish
Exercise regularly to increase stamina, improve circulation and fitness levels
If you are overweight, lose excess weight in a healthy, natural way
Increase your intake of vitamin supplements such as vitamin A and D
Manage your stress levels by listening to music, running or partaking in a detox program
Learn as much as you can about impotence, the more you know the more you will be able to find a solution that best suits your lifestyle
Limit your intake of alcohol and stop smoking naturally
Avoid using recreational drugs as they contribute to impotency problems
Communicate openly and honestly with your partner about your problem because you are going to need their support
Together with your partner, try alternative methods to obtain sexual satisfaction and pleasure

10 Foods to Help Prevent Clogged Arteries 

Atherosclerosis (also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease or ASVD) is a specific form of arteriosclerosis in which an artery wall thickens as a result of the accumulation of calcium and fatty materials such as cholesterol and triglyceride. It reduces the elasticity of the artery walls and therefore allows less blood to travel through. This also increases blood pressure. It is a syndrome affecting arterial blood vessels, a chronic inflammatory response in the walls of arteries, caused largely by the accumulation of macrophages and white blood cells and promoted by low-density lipoproteins (LDL, plasma proteins that carry cholesterol and triglycerides) without adequate removal of fats and cholesterol from the macrophages by functional high-density lipoproteins (HDL) (see apoA-1 Milano). It is commonly referred to as a hardening or furring of the arteries. It is caused by the formation of multiple plaques within the arteries (Anthea et al, 1993).

Moreover, atherosclerosis is especially dangerous because it is hidden deep in the body and not easily detectable. It is a slow, progressive disease.

10 Foods to Help Prevent Clogged Arteries 

Since ancient times garlic has been used to treat heart disease and hypertension. According to a study published
in preventive medicine, garlic inhibits coronary artery calcification which serves as a marker for plaque

• Grapes
Grapes are rich in flavonoids, quercetin, and resveratrol. These flavonoids have been found to prevent the oxidation of bad cholesterol that leads to the formation of plaque in artery walls. They also lower the risk of developing blood clots that can lead to heart attacks.

• Spinach
Spinach is rich in potassium and folic acids, both of which act as a defense against high blood pressure. Spinach is also rich in lutein, a plant carotenoid which not only protects against age related macular degeneration but also
prevents heart attacks by keeping arteries free from cholesterol build up.

• Fish
A study conducted by researchers at Southampton University found that Omega 3 oils, present in fishes like
tuna and salmon, stop the build up of fatty deposits in the arteries. These fatty acids prevent clots from forming and cholesterol from becoming oxidized.

• Olive oil

Only oxidized cholesterol is able to stick to your artery walls and form plaques. Monounsaturated fats present in
olive oil when mixed with molecules of bad cholesterol become less likely to be oxidized.

• Tomatoes
According to a study conducted by Korean researchers, lycopene, a compound present in tomatoes that gives them their color, helps in prevent hardening of the arteries. Researchers found that women with the highest lycopene levels in their blood had the least stiffness in their arteries.

• Pomegranates
Pomegranate juice not only appears to prevent hardening of the arteries by reducing blood vessel damage, but may also reverse the progression of this disease. Pomegranate fruit and its juice are high in antioxidant content, which may help fight hardening of the arteries.

• Kiwi and Cantaloupe
These antioxidant-rich foods work by reducing toxic LDL cholesterol, which is formed by a rusting process in your
arteries. They can help stop the rust in its tracks and even prevent it from spreading. Eat one cup of cantaloupe or one kiwi per day to unclog your arteries.

• Cranberry juice
This juice strains the fat out of arteries. Instead of having fat build up in your blood vessels, this juice boosts your
cell’s ability to absorb the fat and use it for production of energy. Drink three glasses of this juice every week to
unclog your arteries.

• Oats
Thanks to the soluble fiber in oats, cholesterol doesn't stand a chance. This fiber attaches itself to cholesterol
and carries it right out of your system. Some studies have shown that eating just 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 cups of cooked oat-bran cereal daily can lower cholesterol levels by almost 20%.

HIV, AIDS, and the CD4 Count

CD4 cells are a type of white blood cell that fights infection. Another name for them is T-helper cells. CD4 cells are made in the spleen, lymph nodes, and thymus gland, which are part of the lymph or infection-fighting system. CD4 cells move throughout your body, helping to identify and destroy germs such as bacteria and viruses.

The CD4 count measures the number of CD4 cells in a sample of your blood drawn by a needle from a vein in your arm. Along with other tests, the CD4 count helps tell how strong your immune system is, indicates the stage of your HIV disease, guides treatment, and predicts how your disease may progress. Keeping your CD4 count high can reduce complications of HIV disease and extend your life.

How HIV Affects CD4 Cells

HIV targets CD4 cells by:

Binding to the surface of CD4 cells
Entering CD4 cells and becoming a part of them. As CD4 cells multiply to fight infection, they also make more copies of HIV
Continuing to replicate, leading to a gradual decline of CD4 cells
HIV can destroy entire "families" of CD4 cells. Then the diseases these "families" were designed to fight can easily take over. That's when opportunistic infections are likely to develop.

When to Have a CD4 Count Test

Your doctor will recommend a CD4 count test:

When you're first diagnosed with HIV. This is called a baseline measurement. It allows you to compare against future measurements.
About two to eight weeks after starting or changing treatment.
Every three to six months.

What the CD4 Count Test Results Mean

CD4 counts are reported as the number of cells in a cubic millimeter of blood. A normal CD4 count is from 500 to 1,500 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. It is more important to pay attention to the pattern of results than to any one test result.

In general, HIV disease is progressing if the CD4 count is going down. This means the immune system is getting weaker and you are more likely to get sick. In some people, CD4 counts can drop dramatically, even going down to zero.

The test does not always correspond with how well you are feeling. For example, some people can have high CD4 counts and do poorly. Others can have low CD4 counts and have few complications.

If your CD4 count goes down over several months, your doctor may recommend:

Beginning or changing antiretroviral therapy.
Starting preventive treatment for opportunistic infections.
Public health guidelines recommend starting on preventive antiretroviral therapy if CD4 counts are under 200, whether or not you have symptoms. This is a later stage of HIV infection called AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Some doctors start therapy earlier, when the CD4 count reaches 350 to 500 or if you have a newly acquired infection. If therapy is effective, your CD4 count should go up or become stable.

Most doctors recommend starting medication for opportunistic infections at these levels:

Less than 200: pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP).
Less than 75: mycobacterium avium complex (MAC).

Factors That Can Affect Your CD4 Count

You should know that other factors can influence how high or low your CD4 count is.

CD4 counts tend to be lower in the morning and higher in the evening.
Acute illnesses such as pneumonia, influenza, or herpes simplex virus infection can cause CD4 counts to go down for a while.
If you have a vaccination or when your body starts to fight an infection, your CD4 counts can go up or down.
Cancer chemotherapy can cause CD4 counts to go way down.
Fatigue and stress can also affect test results.
For these reasons:

Try to use the same lab each time.
Have your tests done at the same time of day each time.
Wait for at least a couple of weeks after an infection or vaccination before getting a CD count test.

How kim kardhasian lost 25 kgs 5 months after Giving birth

 How kim kardashian lost 25 kgs 5 months after Giving birth

Kim Kardashian’s Baby Weight — How She Lost 50 Pounds
In the new Us Weekly issue, Kim looks better than ever in a tiny bikini. “I’ve been doing the Atkins diet, but of course, I have my cheat days,” Kim told Us. The diet is extremely low on carbs and focused on healthy fats and lean proteins.
“She wakes up and does more than 100 squats every single morning,” a source close to Kim says. “Even now, when she can wear the things she did before her pregnancy, she still wants to tone her body.”
Kim’s motivation comes from the body shaming she received while pregnant. “I felt bullied throughout my pregnancy, and that was awful. No woman should have to deal with that,” Kim told Us.

Kim works out every single day with Kanye’s trainer. “She never misses a day. It’s therapeutic,” the source says.

Kim’s Exercise Routine Revealed

People magazine is reporting that thanks to “a trainer on tour with she and Kanye and a chef to keep her meals carb free,” Kim has continued to lose weight since she posted her sexy swimsuit selfie in October.

“With the exception of some cheat days, because she is realistic now, she sticks with it!,” the source spills to People. “Kim is working out almost every day. It’s usually running and weight training. It’s hard, but she sticks with it pretty much all the time. She’s so happy. Life is good.”

New Study Finds Link Between Bedtimes and Obesity

by C. Markus ..
Obesity-and-Your-Childs-Bed-TimeA new study conducted by Australian scientists gives new meaning to the old adage “early to bed, early to rise”. The study, which was posted in the journal Sleep, has found a link between overweight children and their bed times.
The researchers followed 2,200 Australians between ages 9 and 16. They compared what time each child went to bed and how many hours he or she was asleep. Researchers found that children who went to bed early and rose early were 1.5 times less likely to become obese, compared with children who went to bed later and woke up later.
It was thought that as long as the children got enough sleep, they would show the same results; however, this was not the case. The children who got the same amount of sleep but went to bed later were less active and more likely to become obese. This shows that it’s not necessarily how much sleep you get; it’s the difference in activity level that appears to change with later bedtimes.
This link could be related to television and video games. Children who went to sleep after 10:40 were 2.9 times more likely to sit in front of the television or play video games. Early risers are more active; there are less prime-time cable and social ties early in the morning, which could explain why early risers are less obese and more active. It is widely accepted that teenagers stay up later; however, this study should serve as warning to parents.

Fighting Libido Lows in Men

by Native.R
While it may be somewhat common for a woman’s  libido to be lacking from time to time due to hormonal changes in the body, they may not know what to think when their partner says they’re “not in the mood”. For some men their libido remains strong well into their 70’s and 80’s. But when certain life situations arise, such as problems at work, stressful home life, preoccupation with finances or even a medical condition all bets are off.
Men suffering from moderate to severe depression can suffer from a low sex drive. Some men don’t even realize they are feeling down until it is brought to their attention; however, they may be aware of their lack of sexual desire. The twist to this issue is that the lack of sexual desire and possible inadequate functioning only increases depressed feelings, thus leading into a vicious unfulfilled cycle.
On the other end of the spectrum is a little fact, sexual desire and drive decreases progressively with age, meaning, it’s not so uncanny for a man’s testosterone to decrease as the years go by consequently leaving him not wanting sex. In fact, men lose 1 to 2 percent of testosterone every year beginning at the age of 30. That being said, is there any need to worry about a lack of libido? The answer to this question is…yes!
Men who suffer from a lack of libido, added with sexual dysfunction, breast enlargement, and muscle loss, may be suffering from a condition called hypogonadism. Hypogonadism occurs when the sexual glands produce too little or no hormones, in men these glands are the testes. The cause for this condition can be attributed to an infection, kidney or liver disease, or a recent surgery. If you notice any other related symptoms along with your lack of libido, consult your doctor.
It is important to know that your body weight directly affects testosterone levels too, so  make sure you keep your weight in check by exercising and eating a well-balanced diet. There are foods out there that can boost your sex drive as well; try eating fish high in fatty acids like salmon and selenium-rich foods like lean meats and brown rice.Herbal supplements can help as well, add Eleuthero, Saw palmetto and Horny Goat weed into your diet to start promoting your sexual desire today.
Let’s face it guys, sometimes your sexual health suffers, If your libido isn’t up- to- par and you have noticed you are having some other related issues, it’s time to see a doctor. Getting your body back to optimal performance can be as easy as a diet change and adding herbal supplements!

Doctor Locates the G-Spot

by Native .R 
G-spotThis year, Professor Adam Ostrzenski announced that he had made a new discovery in female anatomy. In a newly published study, the doctor claimed to have located the G-spot, a source of intense sexual pleasure for women.1
German gynecologist Ernst Gräfenberg first described this erotic spot in 1950.2 Since then, no one has been able to confirm its existence. In May 2012, that changed. That’s when Professor Ostrzenski, a gynecologic surgeon, published his study, G-Spot Anatomy: A New Discovery.
“The G-spot was identified as a sac with walls that grossly resembled the fibroconnective tissues, was easy to observe, and was a well-delineated structure,” Ostrzenski said in the study.3
The Florida doctor pinpointed the location of this erogenous zone. He said it was on the on the superior surface of the dorsal perineal membrane. In women, this membrane is located between the vagina and anus.
Now, thanks to Professor Ostrzenski’s discovery, women may be entering a new era of pleasure. The discovery of the G-spot’s location may also give men a new way to please women.

Penis Enlargement: Does It Work?

Penis Enlargement: Does It Work?

Source:R. Morgan Griffin   (WebMD)

Guys, be honest: Do you wish you were bigger? Almost certainly, the answer is yes.

"I think there isn't a guy in the world who hasn't wished his penis were an inch or two longer," says Michael O'Leary, MD, professor of urologic surgery at Harvard Medical School and a urologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

However, after more than a century of generally dubious and sometimes lunatic penis enlargement attempts, there's still not much you can do. Sure, there are lots and lots of supposed options out there -- penis pills, creams, brutal stretching exercises, horrific-looking devices, and penis surgery. Almost none of it works. The few approaches that can work often have modest benefits and serious side effects. How serious? In some cases, erectile dysfunction-serious.

"Trust me, if I knew of a way to safely and effectively increase penis size, I'd be a billionaire," O'Leary tells WebMD. "But I don't. Nobody does."

Still, common sense doesn't stop size-obsessed guys from trying very sketchy treatments on a vital part of their anatomy -- and risking a lot in the process.

How Small Is a Small Penis?

Think you're smaller than average? You're probably not.

The typical erect penis is usually 5 to 6 inches long with a circumference of 4 to 5 inches. There's more variation in the size of flaccid penises.

Some guys are genuinely smaller than that. In rare cases, genetics and hormone problems cause a condition called micropenis -- an erect penis of under 3 inches. Sometimes Peyronie's disease or prostate cancer surgery can reduce a guy's size.

But studies show that most of the guys seeking penis enlargement are average-sized. They just think they're below average.

Why? Part of it is perspective. It's very hard to gauge the size of your own penis -- looking down, you've got a bad angle.

Psychology plays a role, too. Some average-sized guys become obsessed with the idea that they're too small. There's even a psychiatric diagnosis: penile dysmorphic disorder. It's similar to the perceptual distortion of anorexics who think they're fat no matter how thin they get.

According to one study, the majority of men who get penis enlargement surgery have this condition. They're also the least satisfied with the results.

What Works: Weight Loss

There is one safe and effective method for getting a larger-looking penis: weight loss.

"A lot of men who think that they have a small penis are overweight," says Jennifer Berman, MD, a urologist in Beverly Hills and co-author of Secrets of the Sexually Satisfied Woman.

Losing weight will reveal more of that hidden shaft that's buried beneath belly fat. It doesn't actually increase your size, but it will look that way.

For guys who would rather have a surgical procedure than eat less, liposuction of the fat pad around the penis can work. Still, the effects aren't permanent -- if you don't change your eating habits, your penis will once again sink into your belly, like a pier at high tide.

Penis Enlargement: Pills, Creams, and Devices

What else is there? Here's a rundown of some unsavory options.

The vacuum pump. This is a cylinder that sucks out air. You stick your penis in and the resulting vacuum draws extra blood into it, making it erect and a little bigger. You then clamp off the penis with a tight ring -- like a tourniquet -- to keep the blood from leaking back into your body. What are the drawbacks? The effect only lasts as long as you have the ring on. Using it for more than 20 to 30 minutes can cause tissue damage.
Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
Pills, supplements, ointments, and creams. They don't work. None of them. "I think it's safe to say that all of that stuff is complete nonsense," Berman says.

Penis Enlargement Surgery

What about surgery? It can work, but there are a lot of cautions. There are two basic penis enlargement surgeries.

Lengthening the penis. The most common procedure is to cut the ligament that connects the penis to the pelvic bone. This allows a little more of the shaft -- on average less than an inch -- to become visible outside the body. It's not really lengthening the penis so much as revealing more of what's usually hidden. To prevent the ligament from reattaching, a guy would need weights or stretching devices daily for about six months.
Widening the penis. For men who think their penis is too thin, more controversial procedures can thicken it using implanted fat, silicone, or tissue grafts.
One newer -- and low-risk -- procedure can work for certain men. In some cases, the scrotum attaches high up on the shaft of the penis. Partially disconnecting the scrotum can reveal more of the shaft, making the penis look longer. The surgery takes 20 minutes and can be done on an outpatient basis, O'Leary says.

Penis Enlargement Surgery Risks

Before you take out a penile improvement loan and unbuckle your pants, consider the risks of lengthening or widening surgery.

There are no well-studied approaches. No major medical organization approves of these surgeries. Some guys opt to travel to other countries for treatments that aren't approved in the U.S. If that thought has crossed your mind, slow down -- it's time to have a frank talk with your doctor about the risks you'd be taking.

The side effects of lengthening surgeries are numerous and include infections, nerve damage, reduced sensitivity, and difficulty getting an erection. Perhaps most disturbing, scarring can leave you with a penis that's shorter than what you started with. Widening the penis is even more controversial. Side effects can be unsightly -- a lumpy, bumpy, uneven penis.

The few studies that have been done aren't encouraging. The European Urology study looked at 42 men who had procedures to lengthen their penises by cutting the suspensory ligament and found that only 35% were satisfied with the results. Half went on to get more surgery.

Reconsidering Penis Enlargement

Wishing you were a little bigger is common. If it's becoming a fixation, stop and think before you do something rash.

Talking to a doctor or a therapist can help. Research has found that when a doctor honestly reassures a guy that his penis is average-sized, he is likely to stop searching for surgery.

You also need to be on guard against phony claims for miracle penis enlargement.

"The main target for penis enlargement advertising is insecure guys who think all their power lies in their penises," says Berman. "These guys are easy victims."

Ian Kerner, a sex counselor in New York, says that the imagined glories of a gargantuan penis are not all they're cracked up to be.

"When it comes to penis size, being average is really where you want to be," says Kerner, the author of books including She Comes First. "Having a penis that's too big can be a much larger problem -- pun unintended -- than one that's too small." For guys who are too big for their partners, oral or vaginal sex can be difficult.

"Size really doesn't matter nearly as much as being a good and creative lover," Kerner tells WebMD. "How you use your brains, your hands, your mouth, and everything else -- that's what counts in the bedroom."

So consider: A quest for a bigger penis could leave you with a lumpy, bruised, discolored, thickened, painful, dysfunctional member. (Not to mention a drained bank account.) Does risking the inches you have for the hope of an extra half inch make sense?

Amazing frozen lemons. All it is, is just a frozen lemon.

Do you know that many professionals in restaurants are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted?

 How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

Simple….. you should  place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

Sprinkle it on your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, whisky.... the lists are endless.

Importantly, all of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C- Not anymore.

Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles (however we do not recommend instant noodles-inbox us @  for explanations).

What is the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes? Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you have been wasting!!!

However, from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

It is also argued that lemon peels are health rejuvenators and help in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to making your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That is the lemon secret! Better late than never, right? 

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), more than one million people in the United States get cancer each year (even more worldwide). A poor diet can contribute to the development of cancer, so it is important to consume eat health foods. The ACS recommends healthy food choices with a focus on plant-based foods. Eat fresh, eat well and real foods and drink lots of water. Eat more of the following:

1. Blueberries: Many of the major diseases are caused or developed by chronic inflammation. Inflammation promotes free radicals, which result to dangerous oxidation, cell damage, and subsequently, cancer. Worryingly, the more these free radicals thrive, the more they multiply. The flavonoids in berries, which are part of a family compound called polyphenols, are what make berries so healthy. Polyphenols promote “the expression “of genes that reduce inflammation and also promote the body’s antioxidant system.

2. Pineapple: New research (UCL)  shows that the bromelain in pineapples helps with cancer treatment. According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, “Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme, which can be helpful in treating cancer because it helps restore balance to your immune system- among other cancer-fighting benefits.”

Ginger a common spice in most  kitchens can take care of  high levels of blood sugar which create complications for long-term diabetic patients, a new study has claimed.

"Ginger extracts obtained from Buderim Ginger were able to increase the uptake of glucose into muscle cells independently of insulin, "Professor of pharmaceutical chemistry Basil Roufogalis who led the research said in a statement.

Ginger is the thick knotted underground stem (rhizome) of the plant Zingiber officinale that has been used for centuries in Asian cuisine and medicine.
Native to Africa, India, China, Australia and Jamaica, it is commonly used as a spice or flavouring agent in cooking, as an alternative ‘herbal’ treatment for various ailments such as nausea and indigestion, and for fragrance in soaps and cosmetics.
Ginger rhizome can be used fresh, dried and powdered, or as a juice or oil. It has a pungent and sharp aroma and adds a strong spicy flavour to food and drink.

                        Effect on diabetes

Glycemic control
A study published in the August 2012 edition of the natural product journal Planta Medica suggested that ginger may improve long-term blood sugar control for people with type 2 diabetes.
Researchers from the University of Sydney, Australia, found that extracts from Buderim Ginger (Australian grown ginger) rich in gingerols - the major active component of ginger rhizome - can increase uptake of glucose into muscle cells without using insulin, and may therefore assist in the management of high blood sugar levels.  
Insulin secretion
In the December 2009 issue of the European Journal of Pharmacology, researchers reported that two different ginger extracts, spissum and an oily extract, interact with serotonin receptors to reveres their effect on insulin secretion.
Treatment with the extracts led to a 35 per cent drop in blood glucose levels and a 10 per cent increase in plasma insulin levels.
Cataract protection
A study published in the August 2010 edition of Molecular Vision revealed that a small daily dose of ginger helped delay the onset and progression of cataracts - one of the sight-related complications of long-term diabetes - in diabetic rats.
It’s also worth noting that ginger has a very low glycemic index (GI). Low GI foods break down slowly to form glucose and therefore do not trigger a spike in blood sugar levels as high GI foods do.
Other health benefits
Ginger has been used as an herbal therapy in Chinese, Indian, and Arabic medicine for centuries to aid digestion, combat the common cold and relieve pain.
Its powerful anti-inflammatory substances, gingerols, make it an effective pain reliever and it is commonly used to reduce pain and swelling in patients with arthritis and those suffering from other inflammation and muscle complaints.
In fact, ginger is said to be just as effective as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but without the gastrointestinal side effects.

                                Other medical uses of ginger include treatment of:

Menstrual pain
Nausea and vomiting
Upset stomach
Upper respiratory tract infections (URTI)
Cure for nausea
Helps with bronchitis
Reduces dizziness
Helps with morning sickness
Cure for diarrhea
Preventing osteoarthtritis
Helps with gas
Cure for cough
Prevents cold
Helps with upset stomach
Cure for baldness
Prevents colon cancer
Treating malaria
Juice can heal burns and relieve pain
Fresh helps with snake bites
Cure for rheumatism
Stimulates an appetite

The Joys of Laughter

by C. Markus 
The Joys of LaughterHave you ever wondered why laughter makes us feel good? Numerous studies have been conducted over the past decades linking laughter to health and happiness, but why?
According to Robert Dunbar of Oxford University, it’s not some deep intellectual pleasure, but the physical act of laughing itself. Dunbar found muscle contractions resulting from laughter release endorphins to the brain, which, in turn, make us feel good. Endorphins functions as neurotransmitters, and are released during exercise, excitement, pain, consumption of spicy food, and love. They act as opiates and are the main reason laughter makes us feel good.
Dunbar conducted an experiment consisting of 5 lab studies and 1 field study at a comedy club. The subjects watched numerous video clips, one meant to induce laughter, one neutral, and one meant to promote good feelings, but not laughter. After watching a combination of these clips, they were asked to rate feelings of pain. This was accomplished by placing an ice cold wine sleeve, or a blood pressure cuff on the patients arm. They were then asked when the pain was too much to bear. Their voices were also recorded in order to calculate the time spent laughing. Pain resistance is used to measure endorphin levels, because endorphins are too difficult to measure in the brain.  The results were posted in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. Dunbar found subjects who laughed had a higher tolerance for pain. It was thought that feeling good would also make us more resistant to pain, according to the study this is not the case. Subjects who watched the video meant to induce good feelings, but not laughter had the same tolerance as the subjects who watched the neutral video. This study is just another in a long line, but proves the simple physical act of laughing is what makes us feel good.

Is Your Partner Causing Your Sleep Problems?

by A. Grano 
If you’re one of many people who has difficulty sleeping, do you find that you sleep even worse with a partner beside you? From snoring to annoying habits, find out how to work through some of the most common problems that may be interfering with you and restful slumber!
Sleeping with a snoring partner is usually not an issue that can be ignored, and can lead to resentment in a relationship and even health problems if not addressed, making it important that your partner determine the cause of the snoring. Many times, snoring may result from sleep apnea, a breathing obstruction that could be life-threatening. Your partner is likely unaware of this condition, which should be diagnosed and treated by a professional.
Other causes of snoring may include sinus and nasal problems, obesity, alcohol consumption, and even the way a person sleeps (lying flat on the back can cause snoring). Talk with your partner about lifestyle changes that can help address some of these controllable factors.
Tossing, Turning & Restless Limbs
While we all may experience some restless nights now and then, for people suffering from restless leg syndrome, staying still is a constant struggle. Underlying conditions may be to blame for some cases of RLS, such as rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid problems, and even stress. For mild cases of RLS not associated with more serious health concerns, Butcher’s broom can help to improve poor circulation and relieve the pain and discomfort associated with restless leg syndrome.
Other Factors
Sometimes, achieving better sleep with a partner is all about compromise. After working through all the possible health issues that may be disturbing your sleep, discuss the little things that are playing a role as well, including temperature, alarm settings, or having Fido in bed. Be sure to bring these issues up before bedtime to ensure full attention from your partner and allow for some time to resolve the problems together.

Blood Sugar Control: Another Reason to Get Kids in Bed Early

by A. Grano 
While many parents are familiar with the studies showing a strong correlation between poor sleep habits and lower grades, a new study published in the journal Sleep is showing yet another reason why kids need to establish healthy sleep routines.
The study, led by researchers at the University of Arizona in Tucson, found that children with type 1 diabetes may have a more difficult time controlling their blood sugar due to poor sleep, including abnormalities like lighter sleep and sleep apnea. The study participants with diabetes showed higher blood sugar levels compared to their peers without the condition, and almost a third of the children had sleep apnea, a condition previously associated with type 2 diabetes in adults. The report also noted the correlation between these sleep deficits and performance in school.
While a proper diagnosis and evaluation by a professional should be made, parents can be watchful of symptoms of sleep apnea in children, which may include:
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Loud snoring
  • Periods of silence (not breathing) followed by gasps
  • Falling asleep during the day and at inappropriate times
  • Morning headaches
  • Trouble concentrating and limited attention
  • Recent weight gain
  • Irritability
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue
  • Poor judgment
  • Mood or behavior changes
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
For children without sleep apnea that have difficulty getting to sleep or experiencing restful sleep, making a few lifestyle changes may be all that is needed to help establish healthy sleep routines.
Encouraging children to engage in regular exercise during the day, creating a soothing and relaxing bedtime environment, and limiting stimulating activities such as video games and TV before bed can help.
