Vitamins and lifestyle changes have been shown to encourage hair to grow and reduce hair loss. Balding is a genetic trait but good nutrition can play a part in hair growth. Hair products, such as masks, shampoos and leave on conditioners can also prevent hair loss and restore healthy, vibrant hair. Adding nutrients will help regrow hair.
Research has now shown that adding Omega-3 fatty acids to the diet can increase the survival rate of those with coronary heart disease. Omega-3s have also been shown to slow down the aging process. The marker used to determine these findings was a part of the DNA strand called telomeres. The research concluded that high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids in the blood slowed the aging process by as much as five years.
Benefit from the Natural Health of Bananas
The banana that we eat with our morning cereal has been used as a medicine around the world for centuries. Known in Latin as Musa sapienta, the banana is not actually a fruit but an herbaceous perennial. Alone and combined with healing botanicals, the banana can be used to heal ulcers and asthma, or to cure cataracts and other eye problems. Research has now shown that bananas can lower blood pressure as well as prevent colon cancer. Full of many nutrients and fiber, the banana is not only a food, but also a potent medicine.
Prevent Hair Loss with Biotin and Other Nutrients
Hair loss is a natural process that progresses with age, but many nutrients have been shown to improve circulation to the scalp, prevent hair thinning and hair loss. Adding simple nutrients from food and vitamins can both repair hair and help to regrow hair, starting at the roots. Biotin is an important nutrient to help prevent hair loss. Genetics play a part in predicting who will lose hair and when, but diet can delay or prevent hair loss and age-related balding. Treatments applied topically, such as hair masks, conditioners and vitamin treatments can also help but the best results occur when nutrients such as biotin are added to the diet.
(NaturalNews) New research shows that people with wheat allergies and gluten intolerance have a higher risk of heart disease, cancer and death. Gluten is a protein contained in many grains, including wheat, barley, rye, and oats. It is even found in more unusual grains, such as spelt and kamut. Gluten is also found in beer. Wheat or gluten intolerance plague many people and cause gastric disturbances, but research now shows chronic health conditions are triggered by gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity, and the extreme form of wheat allergy called celiac disease.
In July 2009, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) ceased tracking individual cases of H1N1 Swine flu, CBS News has reported. The CDC advised states to stop testing for the virus in the middle of an international pandemic. Their reasoning was that there was no need for confirmation of actual cases, since the epidemic was obviously underway. When CBS News investigated the data from that time period, they found that most of the reported cases were not H1N1 flu as suspected. In fact, over 80% of the tested cases that presented with upper respiratory infections were not any type of flu at all.
A recent study by Oxford University demonstrated that computer games could help treat traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and help remove the memory of trauma, if the same is played immediately after a stressful event. Previous research determined that video games can increase brain activity and create structural changes in the brain. Many online sites offer free versions of various video games that can be accessed easily and for free, for those needing relief from stress.
Televisions and other electronic devices emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Because of the subtle energy of homeopathic remedies, it is possible for them to be damaged by exposure to EMR. Electromagnetic radiation is damaging to human cells and to all living organisms because it causes atoms to alter. The radiation causes a removal of electrons from the atoms and alters the DNA of the cells. It is important to know which types of electronic devices emit damaging rays, and how to protect the remedies from exposure.
