How to Cope with Allergies

Most allergies are cause discomfort to internal organs, skin or breathing. Some can be fatal while others can cause other issues due to scratching the itch, and if your digestive system is affected, you may be staying near the bathroom. How can you cope with your allergies to be able to live life more comfortably and minimize the dangers that can befall you? Having had asthma for several years and having experienced near-death several times, I’ve figured out what to do.

Know your Allergens

If you have been treated in a hospital, you will likely be asked if you are allergic to certain medicines. That is to avoid aggravating the situation. Being aware of your allergens will enable you to decide whether to eat a specific food or not, choose your accessories better, and breathe more comfortably. Once you have identified your allergens, avoid them as much as possible, unless you have made your immune system stronger, then ingesting them from time to time, wearing metal or sniffing cologne or smoke from time to time will be bearable.

Breathe Correctly

Breathing the wrong way robs you of a more comfortable life. Babies breathe right naturally. As we grow old, we learn to breathe the wrong way, hence, the lower lungs are not maximized. Inhale and exhale slowly through the nose and make sure to use your diaphragm (your stomach bulges as you inhale instead of your chest). When asthma attacks, sometimes it helps to hold your breath for awhile to calm the airway.

Avoid Chemical-Laden Products for your skin

People with sensitive skin react to chemicals 99.9% of the time. There are just varying degrees of reactions for different people. Choose hypoallergenic makeup sets or all-natural ones. Virgin coconut oil helps in healing the skin and making it glow. Applying right after bathing at night, but before toweling, will lock the water in the pores through the night, for healthier skin. It is also anti-fungal, as well as anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial, so you are covered well.

Strengthen your Immune System

As long as your immune system is weak, there is no way your allergic reaction will lessen drastically. It can only be done with proper nutrition. In today’s generation, most of what is called food are filled with preservatives and served fast. Even supposedly natural foods are GMOs. Livestock and poultry are often injected with hormones. Farm lands are filled with insecticides. Choose where you get your nutrition from wisely.

Visit an allergy doctor, such as Dr. Summit Shah, MD. He will be able to help you, especially when you have ongoing allergy problems. Check his LinkedIn profile, too.

A Motherly Touch For Your Own Health

As a mother, it’s very easy to get sucked into the whirlpool of life, dealing with the problems of the entire family while ignoring your own. Of course, you want to be able to put your energy into the people you love. But, just sometimes, you have to be a little selfish. Your own health is very important to both you and your family. If it goes bad, your family might have to pick up the pieces, struggling with their new workload. Or, it could just be a matter of keeping up with the kids. To help you out, this post will be going through some of the most common areas moms have health issues and some of the ways to secure them for the future.

Considering it’s so important, it almost feels like an oversight that humans only have one heart. But, of course, you do only have one, making it critical that you protect it. There are a lot of different things which can negatively affect your heart. From smoking and a bad diet to a lack of exercise or issues in the family, your heart is under constant pressure. Regular trips to the doctor will help you to make sure you’re not unhealthy. But, you should also adapt your lifestyle to make sure it’s as healthy as possible.

Next, it’s time to consider another part of your body which will be hugely impacted by the way that you live. It’s very easy to damage your back. Sitting in the wrong kind of chair for days on end will have a negative impact. And, so could your bed. When you’re choosing items like this, you should always be aware of the back pain they could cause or solve. There are loads of options out there designed to help people with their back.

Your senses are one of the most valuable assets you have. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to perceive the world around you in the way that you do. Protecting your ears is easy, you just have to avoid long exposure to loud volumes. Your eyes, though, might take more work. There are loads of different eye conditions which can only be spotted by a professional. It’s a good idea to have your eyes tested as often as you can. This will help you to ensure that they keep their health, and will enable you to catch issues before they get worse.

Finally, not a lot of people consider the health of their skin. But, with issues like skin cancer on the rise, it’s worth thinking about the protection you use. UV light from the sun breaks down the cells in your body, causing sunburn and other painful issues. Eventually, this damage can cause cancer to form. Avoiding sunlight is very hard. But, you don’t have to. Instead, you just need to make sure that you use a good sunblock when you’re spending a long time in the heat.

Hopefully, this post will help you to start considering your own health a little more, not just the families. It’s worth being a little bit selfish when it comes to health. A lot of people leave this sort of effort until it’s too late. But, with the little amount of work it takes, it makes sense to put as much in as you can.

Careful Parental Advise For Illnesses That Toddlers Commonly Catch

As children grow up, they’re bound to catch something; it’s purely inevitable. Not only is it a foregone certainty, but essentially human beings would not exist if mother nature does not test our defenses. Our immune systems can only develop strong if we don’t go through illnesses when we’re little. Unfortunately, children need to go through some common ailments before they can grow up with tough, reactive white blood cells. In a way, children aren’t exposed to illnesses because as parents we try to protect them as much as possible. We make every precaution we can think of and still, one day; your child will get sick. It doesn’t help that toddlers are extremely curious and often put things in their mouth to feel and chew them. Basically, parents are fighting a losing battle. However, that’s not to say you should just let them be because of course, you should wrap them up warm when they go to school in the winter. By no means necessary are your children going to go through the ebb and flow of illnesses in a linear pattern. However, there are certain illnesses which they are likely to catch, and here’s how to treat them.

The most common

Of course, everyone knows it, because it’s the bane of all humankind; the common cold. You know the drill by now; the first sign of a virus taking hold will be your children complaining of feeling hot, or suddenly they develop a sniffle. Next will be the un-mistaken noise of the dry throat cough. Before you know it, your child’s sinus will be stuffy, their nose will be running, and they’ll be sneezing regularly. Toddlers above two years old are unlike babies in the fact that they can take cough medicine, although the brand and strength should be consulted with your doctor or local nurse. Equally, warm orange juice should clear their throat, as well as closing the bedroom window at night and keeping their extremities such as hands, feet, and head covered. Although initially, they’ll feel hot, the body expends so much energy trying to fight off the virus, that the energy resources are located purely in that battle; thus their body temperature will start to dip.

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is a bacterial infection that attacks the digestive system. A shigellosis outbreak is mainly found in unsanitary daycare centers, and ingested through contaminated drinking water; as well as food. The bacteria releases toxins that exasperate the intestines which cause further progression of the infection. Toddlers are more likely to get it because they put their fingers in their mouths and allow bacteria into the bodies. The symptoms are watery diarrhea as well as cramping of the abdominals. Toddlers can feel nauseous, and vomiting can occur. Symptoms usually begin to surface within three days. To treat the illness, first, you need to fight off the effects of dehydration by giving your toddler plenty of fluids, especially those that have electrolytes in them. It’s best not to give your toddler some kind of medication as this will actually keep the bacteria in their system for longer. Usually, within 4-6 days, the illness should subside and pass. If it prolongs, go and see a doctor or take to the nearest hospital, although, such instances are very rare.

Conjunctivitis

Pinkeye or to use the medical term, conjunctivitis,  is an inflammation of the soft tissue lining the eyelids. The cause of the infection is due to contact with another person’s infected secretions, and bacteria living in the nose and ear making contact with the eye from the hands. This causes redness and sometimes yellow pus to discharge from the area. Your toddler will suffer from blurred vision and dry eyes. It’s a bacterial infection which has to be treated with antibiotics in liquid drop form. Belay your child from going to school for a couple of days. Make sure they wash their hands regularly and avoid touching their eyes as well as sharing towels, blankets, pillows at home, and the other children at the daycare center.

Asthma

If you see your child struggling to breathe, or hear them wheezing when they exhale, they may have a mucus infection in their throat. This can lead to breathing difficulties which cause their windpipe to react overly defensive and tighten and or close up. Asthma is common in toddlers because they often don’t have very thick mucus to protect them. Bacteria from mold, damp or poor quality air in the home care lead to this illness. Dust mites also play a role, because the feast on dead skin cells and their excrement causes bacteria to waft into the air. When this occurs, the germs latch onto living tissue and begin to infect the internals of the throat. To treat your child, they must see a doctor as soon as possible. He or she will prescribe your child an inhaler, only to be used in mild discomfort and or sudden attacks of breathlessness. The main thing you can do at home is to make sure their bed sheets are changed regularly and to hoover their carpet which is where most of the dust mites reside. Equally, fresh air should be circulating their bedroom, so bacteria in air particles don’t infect them further while they sleep. They should also be regularly changing their clothes, so dead skin cells aren’t allowed to pile up and fester in them.

Ear ache

Ear ache is very common in toddlers, and there can be multiple causes. Swimming in dirty pools can afflict them with swimmer’s ear which is an infection of the ear canal. Pressure from the cold or even pain from the jaw can radiate itself into the ear. Your child may suffer from fever due to the proximity of the infection to the brain; the body will need to be cooled by wearing thin clothes and avoid wearing socks at home. Take your child to the doctor, and they may give you some antibiotics if the infection is in need of immediate attention. However, if you think the infection is in its early stages and can be managed, simple ear drops can fight the infection adequately.

The TUNG Brush & Gel is the Best Tongue Cleaning System Available & It’s yours for FREE!!!

Many people don’t realize that bad breath comes from our tongue and that a special brush and cleaner is needed to resolve the unwanted smell. Mouthwash does not remove the bacteria causing the unwanted smell and a tooth brush is too soft to be effective. Screen Shot 2017-05-15 at 2.17.03 PMThe original tongue brush is called the TUNG Brush that is used with the TUNG Gel. The brush cleans the tender but rough surface of the tongue and the gel neutralizes nasty bacteria for fresher breath. We tried this system for a week and we were amazed how fresh our breath and mouth was after each time we used it. Each time it only takes about 10 seconds and the brush and gel couldn’t be easier to use. It’s definitely beneficial to use immediately after brushing our teeth because it’s so quick and easy.

Very Tasty & Healthy Back-To-School Lunchbox Sandwich & Snack

This is a sponsored post by Nature’s Harvest.  All opinions stated are my own.

As a mother, I have always been worried about the health of my daughter. I’m very conscious about what she eats and what I should give her that will make her healthy. The real challenge that I face in this mission was when she started going to school. Being a choosy girl, she rarely ate what I gave her in her lunchbox. The problem was solved when I got to know more about the Nature’s Harvest® Bread in honey wheat flavor and Entenmann’s Little Bites Fudge Brownies®.14079807_1173212509408481_3920409606140183153_nI did not waste any time and went to my nearest WalMart to buy them.  As I have already mentioned, I always prefer to make healthy choices for my daughter, so I reviewed the ingredients in the Nature’s Harvest® Bread and Entenmann’s Little Bites. I found that the Nature’s Harvest® Bread is baked with at least 8 grams of whole grains per serving, and without high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors or colors. Moreover, the Entenmann’s Little Bites Fudge Brownies® are a wholesome, fun snack perfectly packaged for the lunchbox and made with real ingredients and never any high fructose corn syrup or trans Fat.14046093_1173259529403779_7241809501296880198_nWe all know that these days some children are very finicky and they only eat the things that they want to. This is the reason that I need food for my daughter that is not only high in nutrition, but should also look and taste good. This problem was also solved by the Nature’s Harvest® Bread and Entenmann’s Little Bites. I made a cool shape of flowered sandwich using ham and cheese with the fresh and the appetizing look of the Nature’s Harvest® Bread and its amazing taste…. my daughter cannot resist them! Moreover, the Entenmann’s Little Bites Fudge Brownies® are so tempting that even if your child is not a sweet- lover, he or she will love to eat them.

Furthermore, the Nature’s Harvest® Bread can be used to make a club sandwich which is my daughters favorite sandwich or anything similar that your child loves to eat. Yes, they taste good with whatever you make from them. To tell you the truth, I have often seen my daughter eating their bread all by itself. So, remember the next time your at the grocery store to buy the Nature’s Harvest® Bread and Entenmann’s Little Bites for your child and pack a delicious lunchbox they love each and every day.
