Keeping healthy - The natural way #2

    Connor Meehan Pictures, Images and PhotosThe second most common problem these days is obesity. It is not such a difficult thing to control our weight as it is made out to be if you know the correct method. At this point of time, you must be wondering how to regain your slim figure back once more effortlessly. It is very easy if a person has desire, determination, good planning and a large helping of motivation.

    This journey starts with a desire to regain that lost figure that you once had in your youth. A person should be self motivated to stick to a weight loss program that he/she has chosen. Good planning helps a great deal in speeding up the process of becoming healthy once more. One should always try to maintain the vision of a healthier and leaner figure so that they stay motivated enough to continue with the weight loss program. There are many causes for obesity. It can be due to either our genes or our eating habits. Our defective genes cannot be changed but we can modify our diet so that we can once again become again.

    One good way is to plan out our daily activity as much as possible so that we not only are able to control our calorie intake but are also able to burn up the excess weight as possible quickly. Start out your day with a fruit salad with a large glass of freshly squeezed glass of orange juice in the morning. Pack that lunch from home instead of eating out. Hit the gym after work and finally when you finally reach home eat something light. Reclaim that lost figure and not only will you end up looking good but feeling healthier also. Try to avoid sugar laced drink and foods as much as possible as they are loaded with excess calories and try to do a quick calorie count when buying packaged foods from your favorite grocery chain.

It is difficult to find that special place you are looking for at the last moment and a generous amount of help is needed at times like this. One of my friends was in such a situation and I volunteered to help out. So, I logged onto the net and I was desperately searching the net for a perfect vacation spot in Australia as it is one of the main destination points for fun seekers. During the search, I discovered some really great vacation spots which can be used to really impress the people who will want to see your vacation photos at a later date.

        While doing the search, I discovered that there is a Accor Hotels 3-Day Super Sale Asia Pacific campaign going on which runs for only 3 days 27 Oct 09 to 29 Oct 09. In this 3 day Super Sale about one million hotel rooms across Asia Pacific can be gotten at an at amazing rate starting as low as US$30 per night.

It offers to its clients over 40 years of expertise in hotel and service sector. What can be better than going with the leader?

          Keeping healthy the natural way#1

            People are bound to fall ill every so often and under these situations we usually follow one of two paths. If we categorize the illness as minor then we usually try some kind of home remedy at first to see if we can cure the illness before seeking medical help from a doctor. The other path is seeking medical help immediately we are able to recognize the seriousness of the problem at the time of the incident.
            There are many lifestyle diseases which affect almost every person. Some of these can be cured while others can be controlled to some extent. Some of these lifestyle diseases which come to my mind at this point are: High blood pressure, Obesity and numerous tummy related problems.

            One of the most common diseases is affecting a lot of people these is high blood pressure which is also known as the silent killer. It is often misdiagnosed by the affected people until it is too late as there are no particular symptoms which are directly connected only to blood pressure problems. This can often leads to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure in the long term.

            The only way to tell if a person has high blood pressure is to have their blood pressure checked on a regular basis by a doctor. A normal and healthy person’s heart beats about 60 to 80 times a minute under relaxed conditions. The blood pressure should be as near as possible to 120/80 mm Hg (millimeters of mercury) for an adult. Blood pressure that stays between 120–139/80–89 is considered pre-hypertension and above this level (140/90 mm Hg or higher) is considered high (hypertension). Your doctor may take several readings with a stethoscope over a period of time before deciding whether the person’s blood pressure is high or normal.

            It can be controlled though not fully cured by either taking the blood pressure medication prescribed by the doctor and by making some lifestyle changes. The sedentary lifestyle and incorrect eating habits are the main causes of high BP and modifying our lifestyles. One way to correct this problem is to become more active through incorporating some form of exercise and meditation and eating healthier fat free foods leads to a lowering of high blood pressure to some extent.
            Some ways to correct the BP problem is to reduce the salt intake, adding garlic to your diet, Hawthorne, Rauwolfia serpentine, taking supplements of potassium/magnesium and fish oil as these things have been shown beneficial for patients with high blood pressure.

            Fish oil contains DHA (docohexaenoic acid), which lowers high blood pressure in most cases. Even though it is quiet safe to use it in ones diet, some points must be kept in mind. It has been show that people who have the following symptoms: Bleeding problems, allergy to fish oil, lung/breathing problems, pregnant, or breast feeding should avoid taking it as it leads to complications.

            Garlic is a very efficient high blood pressure preventative natural alternative. It is very effective because of its cholesterol-lowering properties and has blood thinning capability thereby reducing the blood pressure by about 5 to 10%. Over a period of time it has gained a reputation for being an anti-social food due to its offending smell, but with all of the health benefits that garlic provides, bad breath should be the least of your worries.

            Hawthorne berries are used in some parts of the world to treat cardiovascular disease. It helps to protect arterial walls, lower blood pressure by dilating blood vessels and strengthen the heart's pumping ability. Studies have shown that the full effect usually takes several weeks to months to develop and has far fewer side effects than the over the counter medication.

            Rauwolfia Serpentine is also known as the Indian Snakeroot is also a popular alternative here prescribed by some doctors who follow the alternative medicine. One of its main beneficial points is to significantly lower blood pressure with only a small dose. It takes a few days after the initial administration for the full effects of the medication to take place and it has shown to have a cumulative effect. One must keep in mind that Rauwolfia does have side effects when taking this medication. The most common side effect are: nasal congestion, dizziness, nausea and dry mouth. Read more...

                  Helping the expecting mother out

                    When one of my relative who had shifted to a new town recently, the first thing he did was rent an apartment close by to the hospital as they were expecting a baby shortly. The first thing that I noticed when I visited their place was how bare, dull and boring everything looked. The baby room especially looked so bleak, dreary and so drab. They really hated the look of the bare windows and the empty rooms. Since nobody really has any idea on what to do to spice up the looks, I was called up for some advice. We ended up buying something cheap yet decorative for the windows and it seemed to do the trick.

                    After filling it up with all types of furniture, it finally started to look just right. We went through once more through all the rooms with different furniture combinations and went through all types of ideas and finally everything seemed to click. But after giving it some thought we realized that everything was just right. After spending many days going to different places and looking at all the different setups at other people houses to get some ideas, we all realized that the one thing which was missing from his place was a baby crib stuff for the new arrival so that the kid has something to look good in.

                    He really didn’t want to splurge on something expensive so went to a place which stocked a wide variety of children stuff at decent prices and he was thrilled at the range the site offered. Everyone gave their own suggestions, but he managed to find something on his own. We finally bought a tiny baby shoe item as he simply loved this product. No more carrying the little kid around anymore and now he can move around more freely without getting tired. We had never realized how convenient and versatile these handy toys were until the salesperson explained all the different uses it can be used for.

                    Later on I was told that they needed to choose from a baby suit range of baby items and my buddy was assigned the task of finding them at a good rate. Now finding the right one is not really an easy job so it took us some time before we found the right one at an online shop which dealt in giving good deals and great after sales service. After going through the different items we finally ended up buying one which suited his budget and went back completely satisfied that we had made the right choice. Before heading home, we managed to buy a few other children related items to make life easier for the mom to be so that the room looks colorful and ends up being an excellent present as well.

                      Avoide default in payment

                        As we grow older, we realize that money gives us a great feeling. This feeling is fantastic and it gives a person a sense of freedom which nothing else gives. It gives a person the ability to do what they want to do and without depending on others for any help. But not everyone has unlimited amount of money. Due to our limited earning capability, sometimes we end up in such a situation that we need to borrow money from a lending organization in order to make some large purchase like a car or a house.

                        It is not always easy to get the right rates as it sounds. One thing which I have discovered over a period of time is that one can try to keep the loan rates on the lower side by following a very simple to follow method. A person should try to start out by researching as many companies as possible which offer loans to their clients. Having a good credit record is a plus point as it is the starting point for loan companies when they figure out the rates for you. One way to get good loan rates is to improve your credit score by being prompt on your payments and not missing any installments. If a person is having difficulty in repaying the loan amount due to some financial difficulty, then they should talk to the credit repair companies if they are having serious payment problems and work out some credit repair services solution in order to avoid any further negative marking in their credit report.

                        Some of you out there must be asking the question what is a credit score? In order to borrow money from some lending organization, we need a good credit score. A credit score can be defined as an expression based on a statistical analysis of a person's credit files and to represent the creditworthiness of a person. It is based on the credit report submitted by credit bureaus. Having a good credit score tells a company that the borrower is a responsible person who will repay the loan amount on a timely basis. A person should try to improve their credit scores if they have payment problems by using credit repair services in order to get the best market rates possible. Remember, never skip that bill amount no matter how small it is and borrow only as much as you can repay without putting any financial strain on yourself. Read more...
