Incontinence treatment

Do you feel the urge to go to the washroom more often than others do? If you do, then you may suffer from a common problem known as frequent urination or urinary incontinence. Under normal circumstances, your bladder should be able to store urine till you visit the toilet to intentionally evacuate the bladder. It is absolutely normal for you to urinate anywhere between 4 and 8 times a day. However, if you experience the urge to urinate more than 8 times a day or if you need to get up a couple of times in the middle of the night just to go to the washroom, it could mean that you are either consuming too much water in the day, or that you suffer from an underlying health problem that has affected the strength and functioning of your bladder.

Home remedies for lice

Head lice are parasitical brown insects that thrive on the scalps of humans. Due to their short 30-day life cycle, they tend to reproduce quickly. Their eggs, commonly called “nits,” are produced within a week of the female louse’s lifetime and can be even more difficult to remove than the lice themselves, since they are firmly attached to the hair shafts. Although head lice are often associated with schoolchildren, in reality, anyone with a head of hair can contact them if they are in close proximity to others who are infested.

An excess of abdominal gas leaves the body in three main ways: abdominal bloating, belching, and flatus. The average person passes gas around 12 to 25 times each day, but it is generally not noticeable. Large, frequent expulsions of gas are not typical. When air instead gets trapped in the colon or small bowel, abdominal bloating is seen. Air that is swallowed may stick around in the stomach until a person belches. To combat these uncomfortable situations, natural remedies can be used to decrease intestinal gas and prevent embarrassing releases.

Fibroids treatment: list of home remedies

Posted in Fibroids | Comments Off

Fibroid tumors are tumors composed of fibrous tissue which generally occur in women during their reproductive years and shrink or disappear after menopause. Most of the time they are benign and cause no apparent symptoms; however, in other instances, fibroid tumors can result in severe discomfort and may include heavy bleeding and pain. Conventional medicine’s answer to fibroid tumors is very often a hysterectomy or other type of surgery and medications – none of which guarantees that fibroids will not return. Nature, on the other hand, can shrink or eliminate fibroid tumors by addressing their source cause and utilizing remedies which create an environment in which fibroids are no longer welcome.
