46. Nutrition and Supplements – Herbs for Menopause
Once women reach the menopause years, typically around the age of 50, a variety of physiological changes and menopause symptoms occur that can have a profound impact on their lives. Menopause is a term that refers to the end of menstruation, the result of the natural decline in the hormones (estrogen, progesterone and others) produced in the ovaries. After years of preparing and releasing eggs, the ovaries eventually reach a point where they end their monthly routine. As hormone levels decrease, a number of symptoms may emerge, although their presentation and severity varies greatly from woman to woman.

The most common menopause symptoms are hot flashes, depression, insomnia, vaginal dryness, irritability, mood swings and headaches.

Try the following natural remedies and herbs for menopause:
Soy foods.

The isoflavones in soy foods help balance hormone levels and have some estrogenic activity. There is ongoing research about the safety and efficacy of isolated soy isoflavone supplements. While the initial results look promising, we currently recommend using natural soy foods rather than supplements. Choose from tofu, soy milk, roasted soy nuts or tempeh.

Flaxseed.

Substances called lignins in flaxseed are important modulators of hormone metabolism. Grind flaxseed daily in a coffee grinder at home and use 1 to 2 tablespoons a day.

Dong quai.

Dong quai (Angelica sinensis) is known both in China and the West for its ability to support and maintain the natural balance of female hormones. It does not have estrogenic activity. This is one of the herbs for menopause that should not be taken if a woman is experiencing heavy bleeding.

Black cohosh

(Cumicifuga racemosa). One of the best-studied traditional herbs for menopause, black cohosh is used to help alleviate some symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes. Black cohosh seems to work by supporting and maintaining hormonal levels, which may lessen the severity of hot flashes. Many women report that the herb works well but it isn’t effective for everyone. While any therapy that influences hormonal actions should be a concern, black cohosh does not appear to have estrogenic activity and thus may be safe for women with a personal or family history of breast cancer.

Vitamin E

.A daily dose of 400 IUs of natural vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols) can help alleviate symptoms of hot flashes in some menopausal women.

B vitamins.

This group of water-soluble vitamins may help women deal with the stress of menopausal symptoms.

Evening primrose oil or black currant oil.

These are sources of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that can help influence prostaglandin synthesis and help moderate menopausal symptoms.

47. Home Remedies for Breast TendernessBreast discomfort and tenderness can happen for several reasons. Some women have achy breasts before and during their period
Home Remedies for Breast Discomfort and Tenderness: Warm compress
Hold a heat compress such as a towel or a heating pad to the achy breast for 10 to 15 minutes to ease the pain and discomfort from achy or tender breasts.

Home Remedies for Breast Discomfort and Tenderness: Cooling Down
When you have achy and swelling breasts from having your period you can try holding a cold compress such as a bag of ice, an ice pack, or a frozen bag of vegetables, molded onto your breasts until the pack starts to warm. Repeat this as needed. By doing this you will ease the pain and swelling from breast discomfort and tenderness due to your menstrual cycle.

Home Remedies for Breast Discomfort and Tenderness: Supportive Bra
Sometimes wearing a bra can irritate a woman’s breasts. Not wearing a bra, however, can cause irritation even more because of the weight of your breasts. Try wearing a supportive bra such as a sports bra. If you don’t like sports bras, look for a bra that has no seams and nothing pushing up against you. If it has an underwire in it, make sure it is very well padded so that it doesn’t add to the friction.

Home Remedies for Breast Discomfort and Tenderness: Add More Soy
To ease the pain and discomfort in your breasts caused by unwanted effects of estrogen, try adding more soy to your diet. It is a fact that in certain societies where soy is a regular part of a woman’s diet, there is fewer breast discomfort. Foods made from soy contain natural substances that are converted to hormone like substances that may block unwanted effects from estrogen.

Home Remedies for Breast Discomfort and Tenderness: Cut out Salt and Caffeine
If you are experiencing breast discomfort from fluid retention, cutting salt from your diet should help prevent and ease breast discomfort. Salt is a water magnet. Cutting caffeine from your diet may help also because caffeine contains a compound called methalxanthine that can cause pain and stimulate breast tissue. Cut out coffee, tea, soda, chocolate, and pain medications such as Excedrin.

Home Remedies for Breast Discomfort and Tenderness: Herbal Tea
Herbal teas such as corn silk, buchi, and uva ursi act as a mild diuretic that can flush out some of the fluid that contributes to breast discomfort. You can find these herbal teas at any health food stores.

Home Remedies for Breast Discomfort and Tenderness: Evening Primrose Oil
Some women have found that by taking evening primrose oil eases breast discomfort and tenderness. There is no scientific reason for it. Health food stores sell evening primrose oil in tablet form.

48. Nature Cure for Anal fissures:
The treatment of anal fissures should first commence by taking all the necessary steps to avoid constipation and soften the stools and keep them regular. The patient should be made to fast on raw juices for about five days. Juices of fruits such as carrot, orange and pineapple may be taken during this period. The patient should drink a glass of juice every two hours throughout the day mixed with water in equal proportions. Warm water enema should be administered daily during this period to cleanse the bowels.

The patient may thereafter switch to an exclusive diet of fresh fruits for the first five days. He should take fresh juicy fruits such as apple, pineapple, orange, peach, pears, grapes and papaya at an interval of five hours during this period. After this the patient can gradually embark to a well balanced diet.

The patient should strictly adhere to diet restrictions in curing anal fissure. This should consist of unrefined foods such as molasses, lentils, whole grain cereals, honey, green leafy vegetables such as lettuce, French beans, tomatoes, cabbage, onions, carrot, pumpkins and beet; fresh fruits especially mangoes, pears, figs, grapes, papaya, oranges, guavas and gooseberries; dry fruits such as apricots, figs, raisins and dates and milk products in the form of milk, butter and ghee.

One of the most effective remedy in the treatment of anal fissure is a gentle instillation of about 65 grams of olive oil into the rectum. This should be repeated daily as needed as it helps in softening the hardened stool.

Foods such as biscuits, cakes, pastries, fleshy foods, cheese, preservatives, products made of white flour, rice and white sugar should be avoided as they result into constipation. It is necessary to strictly avoid sugary foods as sugar steals away the B vitamins from the body without which the intestines cannot function properly.

Drinking sufficient quantity of water is beneficial not only for cleansing the system but also for removing constipation, washing out poisons and diluting the blood. However proper care should be taken not to drink water along with meals as it dissolves the gastric juices necessary for proper digestion. It should be taken one hour before or one hour after meals.

Daily dry friction should form a basic part of the treatment for anal fissure. The affected part should be bathed several times daily with hot and cold fomentations. A piece of linen material should be applied for three to four minutes after being wrung in hot water This hot application should be repeated three times for the same length of time. This should be followed by cold application. This order should always be adopted namely three hot applications followed by one cold application.

Regular physical exercises and fresh air should form an important part of daily health regimen. Yogic asanas such as pavanmuktasana, yogamudra, uttanpadasana, vajrasana, shalabhasana and shavasana are also very beneficial in the treatment of this disease.

Thus it can be concluded that the application of various natural remedies have been found to be very beneficial

51. Home remedies for ulcers in intestine

An ulcer is a wound or erosion in the lower portion of the food pipe, stomach, or duodenum. A gastric ulcer occurs when the natural resistance of the stomach tissues towards acids and the digestive juices decreases. There is pain in the middle of the chest after having a meal because the food irritates the ulcer, therefore one tends to avoid eating. In a duodenal ulcer, there is increased acid secretion in the stomach, which trickles down into the duodenum and erodes it. This condition occurs on an empty stomach and so one prefers to overeat. In Ayurveda, gastric ulcer is known as annadravshool. Annadrava means ‘assimilated food’, and shool means ‘pain’, i.e., ‘pain that arises when the food is eaten’. The duodenal ulcer is known as parinaamshool: parinaam refers to the ‘post-digestive fluid’, so parinamshool is the ‘pain (shool) occurring after the final stage of digestion in the stomach’.

Home Remedies:
Have 1 glassful of cold milk with a pinch of green cardamom powder and 1 teaspoon powdered rock candy (or unrefined sugar), 3-4 times a day or whenever there is pain.

Take 1 teaspoon of Indian gooseberry (amla; amalaki) powder with ½ teaspoon of powdered rock candy (or unrefined sugar) twice a day on an empty stomach.

Mix 1 teaspoon of roasted barley flour into 1 glassful of water. Add 1 teaspoon of powdered rock candy (or unrefined sugar). Have this 3-4 times a day.

Diet and Lifestyle
Have light and easily digestible food. Use whole-wheat flour, brown rice or parboiled rice, cow’s milk, coconut water, and barley water. Avoid heavy, dry, penetrating, spicy, and sour foods. Avoid fish, mustard oil, mustard seeds, pulses, rice, tea, coffee, and alcohol. Avoid waking up late in the night, sitting under the sun, and fasting.

61. Home Remedies for Glaucoma
Your eyeball has internal pressure called intraocular pressure. Glaucoma is a condition where the intraocular pressure increases. This pressure is similar to high blood pressure in the eye and is known as the hypertension of the eye. Some amount of pressure in the eye is necessary but when this pressure goes beyond the manageable limit, it can result in the loss of vision.

The increase in pressure is due to buildup of fluid in the eye ball. This fluid nurtures the eyes and keeps them healthy. After the circulation of the fluid is complete, it empties through the drain in the eye. But when the drain in the eye is blocked, the fluid cannot empty itself. This causes the buildup of fluid resulting in increased pressure and glaucoma is the end result.

As you age, your risk of suffering from glaucoma increases. But a lot of times, the symptoms of disease are not noticeable and when you finally do, it is very late to prevent the handicap. You are more likely to suffer from this problem if you have a family history where one or more of your family members are afflicted. Hence it becomes very important for you to undergo regular eye examination to rule out the possibility of glaucoma, irrespective of the presence of symptoms. If you detect the problems early, you can prevent damage to the nerves of the cells of the eye and vision loss.

Glaucoma Natural Treatment
Doctors will normally recommend surgery to relieve the internal pressure. But this does not remove the cause of the excess fluid. Hence the operation does not guarantee that the trouble does not recur or will not affect the other eye. Go for the natural treatment of the glaucoma, which is the same as that for any other condition arising from toxicity and is targeted toward preserving the remaining sight. You cannot cure glaucoma in the advanced stages but proper nutrition and other natural methods can control the problem and taking care of the remaining sight.

If you are suffering from glaucoma, avoid certain foodstuffs. Coffee is the main food to avoid due to its high caffeine content. Excess caffeine stimulates the vasoconstrictors, elevates blood pressure and increases the blood supply to the eye. Beer and tobacco can cause constriction of the blood vessels and hence should be avoided. Drink moderate amount of tea. Do not take excess fluids like juice, milk or water. Instead have small amounts many times with a gap of one hour.

Your diet should be mainly of seeds, nuts and grains, vegetables and fruits. Eat plenty of vitamin C-rich foods, fresh fruits and vegetables. Your breakfast should consist of oranges or grapes or any other juicy fruits of the season and a small amount of nuts or seeds. Take raw vegetable salad with olive oil and lemon juice dressing, two or three whole wheat chappatis and a glass of buttermilk for lunch. Steamed vegetables, butter and cottage cheese should form your dinner.

Consuming certain nutrients will help your condition tremendously. Generally, people with deficiencies of vitamin A, B, C, protein, calcium and other minerals have a higher risk of suffering from glaucoma. Calcium and B-complex relieve the intraocular pressure. Including vitamin C will also reduce this pressure. Taking 7000 mg of ascorbic acid five times a day brought down the pressure within the acceptable limits. Take some calcium along with it to minimize the side effects of the large dose like mild stomach discomfort and diarrhea.
Relax and strengthen your eyes by doing variety of eye and neck exercises. Avoid emotional stress and develop a peaceful and relaxed lifestyle. Do not strain the eyes for the long time like watching television, movies or reading. Do not use sunglasses.

62. Hoarseness (Laryngitis)
Hoarseness is usually caused due to inflammation of the voice box (laryngitis) or due to an infection such as cold, sounding voice scratchy or husky. There may be sore throat as well or feel as if there is lump in it, also suddenly lose voice as a result of overuse. When hoarseness develops gradually, it is usually because of prolonged overuse of the voice, smoking, or reflux of stomach acid (heartburn) irritating the voice box. In rare cases, a hoarse voice is a symptom of cancer of the larynx. Laryngitis or hoarseness are usually temporary, lasting for no more than a week and home treatment is usually all that is needed.

Home Remedies
Black pepper:

Take 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper powder with 1 teaspoon of clarified Butter.

Do’s
* Rest your voice as much as possible.
* Eat soft foods that can be swallowed easily.
* Try steam inhalation to soothe inflammation and loosen secretions.
* Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep throat lubricated.
* Try to breathe through nose. Breathing through mouth dries the lining of throat and introduce cold, unfiltered air into the lungs, which contributes to hoarseness.
* Use a humidifier in home, or place bowls of water beside a radiator, to keep the air moist.

Don’ts
* Don’t talk or whisper. Whispering can strain vocal cords even more than normal speech.
* Don’t drink caffeinated drinks or alcohol.
* Stop smoking and avoid dry or smoky environments, which can dry the throat and aggravate hoarseness.
* If you smoke, stop it.
* Avoid fermented foods and dairy products such as cheese, yogurt.
* Avoid undiluted citrus juices as they are acidic and may irritate throat.
* Don’t gargle or use mouthwash as the alcohol in some gargles may cause more irritation.
* Don’t cough or clear throat forcibly.

63. Home remedies to remove burn scars
When the skin gets burnt, it often leads to scarring of that area which can be very displeasing to look at. The burn itself is a painful memory to erase and the burn scar is a constant reminder of it. Here are some effective home remedies using traditional Indian herbs to get rid of burn scars

1. Lemon and tomato juice both can help gently remove the dead skin and help the skin rejuvenate. Lemon has acidic properties that naturally lighten the scars. Freshly squeezed tomato juice is a natural bleaching agent and naturally cures the burn marks. Here’s how you can use them: Rinse the burn with cool (room temperature) water. You will need two clean washcloths, a fresh lemon and some fresh tomato juice. The burn mark should first be rinsed thoroughly under cold water. Now, place a moistened washcloth on the burn mark for a few hours. Meanwhile, keep some fresh lemon juice ready. Now, moisten the other washcloth with fresh lemon juice and dab the burn mark gently. After the area is dry, you should apply some fresh tomato juice on the burn mark. Due to its strong natural bleaching effect, you can get rid of the burn mark in just a few days. Repeat this procedure about twice a day on a regular basis to be rid of burn marks.

2. Another good way to remove scars at home is to gently massage the scar with almond oil. Massaging the scar twice a day will help to progressively reduce the scar.

3. Fenugreek seeds also help in getting rid of scars. Soak the fenugreek seeds in water overnight and grind it into a fine paste. Now apply this mixture gently on to the burn marks and leave it on. Once the paste has dried completely, you can wash it off with water. Apply this paste regularly to remove the scars. Cold water with turmeric also has antiseptic properties which work well on burnt skin.

4. Lavender essential oil is a very effective antiseptic that reduces pain and promotes rapid healing. In addition, lavender reduces scarring. When lavender oil is applied to a burn very quickly, the burn may heal with no scarring at all. For larger burns, pour lavender oil onto a gauze or cloth and apply to the burn every few hours.

5. The India unani Cotton-Ash Paste burn remedy has been used for centuries to treat even severe burns. Take a large piece of cotton wool (or any kind of pure, white cotton fabric) and burn it (perhaps in a metal pot). Use the ash of the burned cotton and mix with olive oil to get a thick paste. Spread this black paste on the burnt skin and cover with a cling film. Reportedly, the pain disappears in seconds and even the accompanied shock reduces in severity. If the pain is back, refresh it and use fresh paste on the wound. Use the paste for a week or so, depending on the severity of the burns.

6. Another age-old remedy is potato peels. They provide moisture and they also have anti-bacterial properties that help in healing. Doctors have found that potato peel bandages work better for minor burns than conventional dressings.

7. An effective home remedy for burns can be made by combining equal portions of barley, turmeric and yogurt. Apply the resulting paste over the affected areas for pain relief and healing.

8. Last, but far from least, is colloidal silver. Colloidal silver has wonderful antiseptic and healing properties and helps damaged tissue to regenerate. Major hospital burn units use colloidal silver bandages and ointments.

64. Home Remedies to Control Food Cravings
Eat balanced meals and avoid stringent diets: Researches show that people who eat balanced meals tend to snack or crave foods less often. Dietary restrictions worsen food cravings. You may wonder if that means you should give in to those intense cravings. Give in to your cravings sometimes. But what is really important is to listen to your cravings. If you are tempted to eat something salty, its possible that you may need salt. So, add salt to your food instead of munching of salty unhealthy snacks – which are also high in fat and probably even sugar.

Destress:
Meditate to relax. Meditation in the form of Pranayama and breathing exercises, psychic healing and various mind management techniques help to destress.

Mouthwash :
Brushing and gargling with an antiseptic mouthwash dissuades you from eating after fresh mouthwash use.

Distract yourself:
Distraction helps you lose attention from your cravings. Change your environment or situation for at least an hour, get busy in some other activity. Try not to think of food. And, if you still feel you want what you’re craving for, just have a little.
Avoid situations which trigger a craving: If you skip a meal, you are likely to get so hungry that you end up overeating all the ‘wrong foods’ to compensate for it. These wrong foods are handy sugar candy or high fat fast foods. To control cravings and refrain from binge eating, eat several mini meals throughout the day.

Choose healthy substitutes
If your craving is so intense and you just cant control it, go ahead and pick up healthy alternatives like frozen yogurt, lite icecream or even the fat free sugar free variety. If you cant resist potato chips, choose baked tortilla chips. Whole fruit is a great alternative to stop sugar cravings. Prepare a food nutrition list with healthy food substitutes you can choose to guide you in these times of intense cravings.

Start a journal:
Prepare a food cravings journal. To keep track of your diet cravings, list down the foods you crave for, with the timing when you feel these urges, your emotional status at that time, quantity of the food you ate to satisfy your craving. This food journal helps you keep track of specific craving patterns and how you can deal with them.
Need more love and tender loving care: People who feel loved and cared for, are less likely to seek solace in unhealthy comfort foods. If you get frequent food cravings, it should give you the heads up that it is possible that you need more time to relax, need some tender loving care, positive friends, companionship, productive hobbies and activity.

Exercise:
Oftentimes, craved foods are processed carbs. These increase serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is our feel good neurochemical. Exercise releases such neurochemicals; namely serotonin, endorphins, dopamine, adrenaline which improve mood, regulate emotions positively. Thus, people who exercise regularly are less likely to get food cravings.

Food Fortification:
Consuming foods fortified with vitamins and minerals is an alternative option to deal with the micronutrient deficiencies which may arise out of food cravings.

65. How To Treat Numb Sensation In The Fingers?

Pins and needle sensation
It is common to feel a numbness or tingling sensation in your fingers or different parts of the body. Often referred to as ‘pins and needles,’ this temporary loss of sensation or burning feeling is caused by lack of blood supply to that particular area of the body. In a number of cases, this feeling passes on its own and is rarely a cause for anxiety. However, for some people, numbness in the fingertips or finger pareathesiamay be a sign of a more serious medical condition caused by nerve damage or another disease. If the condition is not treated in time, it may even lead to a permanent loss of sensation.

Symptoms
Signs and symptoms that may accompany numbness in the fingers include:
Pinpricking or tingling sensation (in fingers and other parts of the body)
Burning sensation (in fingers and other parts of the body)
Cramps or pain
Loss of sensation
Tremors in the extremities
Loss of muscle tone
may lose color and turn white
Decrease in muscle strength
Dizziness
If your fingers suddenly feel numb and you experience any of the following symptoms, it is important that you dial emergency services at the earliest. Some of these symptoms include:
Numbness following any injury or trauma
Change in vision
Loss of consciousness
Difficulty walking or moving
Uncontrollable movements of the arms or legs
Incoherent or slurred speech
Paralysis
Loss of control over urination and bowel movements
Weakness or fatigue

Causes
Numbness of the fingers can be caused by:
Holding a particular position for a long time
Cold or extreme weather conditions (frostbite)
Repetitive stress injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome where the median nerve is compressed and causes symptoms such as tingling and pain
Poor blood circulation
Stress and anxiety
Damaged or pinched nerves
Peripheral neuropathy
Diabetic neuropathy
Raynaud’s Syndrome
Peripheral artery disease
Spinal cord injury
Ulnar nerve palsy
Rheumatoid arthritis
Nutritional or vitamin deficiency (especially vitamin B12 deficiency)
Low potassium or calcium levels in the body
Leprosy
Multiple sclerosis
Neck injury
Shingles or herpes zoster
Migraines

Treatment
Treatment for numbness in fingers will depend on the cause. For example if you have carpal tunnel syndrome, certain wrist and hand exercises and the use of a wrist brace can help relieve pain and tingling. If diabetes is the cause of the numbness, medication and dietary changes can bring your blood sugar levels under control. Tingling caused by vitamin deficiency requires an increase in your vitamin intake either through your diet or with supplements.

Some simple ways to ease the feelings of numbness, tingling or burning in the fingers include:

Gentle massage of the fingers and hands to improve blood circulation. Massaging the fingers when immersed in a bowl of warm water is an effective way of reducing numbness
Regular exercise to improve circulation to the extremities and increase the supply of oxygen to all the cells of the body

Keep the fingers and hands elevated to promote blood circulation

Apply a warm or cold compress to reduce burning or tingling
Remedies such as breathing exercises and meditation may also help reduce stress-related symptoms such as numbness and tingling

Change your diet and remove inflammatory foods such as citrus fruits, dairy products and wheat that may aggravate the condition. Simultaneously increase your intake of potassium and calcium-rich foods such as bananas and avocados and green leafy vegetables

Stop smoking and drinking alcohol as this can exacerbate nerve damage.

Protect yourself from the cold and extreme weather conditions

Vitamin B12 is important in the maintenance of health and normal functioning of the nerve tissue and deficiency

66. Home remedy for Frozen Shoulder – pain relief
Stand a couple of feet away from the corner of a table, facing the table with legs slightly more than shoulder width apart. Put the hand of your ‘good arm’ on the corner of the table and lean forward so it supports your body weight, and so that the hand of your ‘bad’ arm (the one with the frozen shoulder) is hanging down. Let your bad arm just hang there. Do NOT swing your bad arm. GENTLY rotate your hips and upper body in a circular motion, similar to hula hooping in slow motion. (see Fig 1) You will notice that your hanging arm also rotates very gently in the same direction. Allow your hanging arm to move naturally. After a few rotations (between 10 and 20) pause for a few seconds, then rotate the hips and body in the opposite direction a similar number of times.

That’s it!

If the above exercise is very painful, or increases your pain, STOP immediately. It isn’t working for you. If the exercise doesn’t increase your pain, try repeating it after 15 minutes. If you find it relieves the pain, then the next time your shoulder is painful repeat the exercise. After doing the exercise a few times try doubling the number of rotations to see if this increases the period of relief.

72. Home remedies for Blotting (Gases)
Behaviors And Food Choices That Can Lead To Gas
Behaviors
Talking while eating
Eating when upset
Smoking or chewing tobacco
Using a straw or sports bottle
Overloading your stomach
Deep sighing
Drinking very hot or cold beverages
Chewing gum or eating hard candy
Drinking from a water fountain
Tight-fitting garments
Long-term use of medications for relief of cold symptoms
Foods
Carbonated beverages
Spicy, fried or fatty foods
Broccoli, cabbage, onions
Beans
Apple or prune juice
Dried fruits
Anything containing sorbitol, mannitol or maltitol, found in many low-carb or sugar-free foods

Beat The Bloat
Bloating is a sensation that makes the abdomen feel larger than normal. The abdomen doesn’t get
physically bigger until its volume increases by one quart, so the bloated feeling may occur, but the
abdomen is not distended. Intestinal gas may cause the feeling of bloating.

Here are additional suggestions to decrease bloating:
Eat slowly, and consume smaller, more frequent meals
Chew your foods well
Drink beverages at room temperature
Have your dentures checked for a good fit
Increase physical activity during the day
Sit up straight after eating
Take a stroll after eating

It is important not to completely omit foods from the diet that may cause gas. As we know, a high-fiber
diet is important for bowel regularity and colon health, so it is well worth the patience it may take to
slowly build up tolerance to these types of carbohydrates. Start by adding the offending high-fiber food
in smaller quantities, such as a half cup or less. Be sure that fluid intake and activity levels are
adequate, as they help to move foods through the digestive tract.

Natural And Other Remedies For Gas
Many advertisements tout medications or remedies that reduce gas and bloating. Some have been shown
to be of value in clinical studies, others have not yet been proven scientifically but are anecdotally helpful.
Before trying anything, you may want to consult with your physician.

Two products on the market can help with food-related gas and bloating. Both products are packaged
forms of the enzymes needed to break down the problematic carbohydrates. Lactase, found in
products such as Dairy Ease and Lactaid, can be taken with dairy foods to help break down lactose
and lessen gas. Beano helps digest the indigestible carbohydrate in beans and other gas-producing
vegetables.

Natural remedies for gas include:
Peppermint tea
Chamomile tea
Anise
Caraway
Coriander
Fennel
Tumeric
Over-the-counter gas remedies include:

Pepto-Bismol
Activated charcoal
Simethicone
Lactase enzyme (Lactaid or Dairy Ease)
Beano

When To Be Concerned
In most situations, occasional gas and abdominal discomfort does not require medical attention. Over-
the-counter products, or a self-assessment of habits and changes in eating behaviors can help remedy
the situation. However, you should seek medical attention when there is an increase in frequency,
location or severity of the symptoms, or if they are accompanied by weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting or
heartburn.

The first thing that you can try doing is giving them snacks in between meals. This is believed to encourage eating on a regular basis. It will over time become a habit which will cause your child to move in the right direction. Make sure to NOT force your child to eat because it will just cause them to rebel against eating even more. You can also try eating snacks with them so they don’t feel as if the problem is revolving around them ONLY.

Stimulating your child’s appetite is another way to rid your child of a low appetite. You can try exercising and or walking for an hour or so a day. Constant movement and activity has been known to stimulate the appetite, causing hunger.

If none of these things seem to work for your child’s appetite then you can try a few natural remedies that are good for enhancing a low appetite. Ginger Root is really good for people with low appetites. It works well with indigestion, constipation, morning sickness, and nausea. You can have your child chew ginger with a small sprinkle of rock salt and lime juice. This will get their appetite rolling. If this doesn’t sound appealing to your child, you can just give them a simple ginger tea to drink a half an hour before you are going to feed them a meal.

Alfalfa is an appetite stimulate that has been used for years in the herbal world. Chinese medicine use Alfalfa extensively in remedies pertaining to the digestive system. You can give your child one teaspoon daily to help increase their appetite. It also helps with their bowel movements. So if your child is having trouble moving bowels, this would be a great remedy for them.

Powdered root of Horseradish is particularly a great home remedy to use to stimulate a healthy appetite. You can give your child one teaspoon three times a day before meals. This will help to create gastric juices which is a sign of hunger.

Aloe Vera is the number one choice for stimulating appetites. It heals the mucous area (that is located around the openings in the body) and it also works on bowel disorders. If all else fails, try using Aloe vera. One teaspoon daily is all that is needed.

It’s always best to try the all natural before you go with the extreme. Most times child with low appetites are just going through a phase. With a little help and a small push, you can get going in the right direction.

80. Natural Remedies for Treating Umbilical Hernias
Although umbilical hernias typically occur in infants, adults can also develop them if they are overweight, pregnant or have excess fluid in the abdomen. Surgery is generally recommended to repair the hernia, but there are natural remedies that can be used to treat or prevent them from recurring.

What is an Umbilical Hernia?
An umbilical hernia occurs when tissue, fluid or a part of an organ such as the intestine pushes through a weakened area of the abdominal wall, causing a lump or bulge in the navel or belly button area. Fairly common in infants, especially in females and those of African-American descent, umbilical hernias form if the opening in the abdominal muscles for the umbilical cord does not close up completely after birth, allowing a piece of the intestine or other tissue to poke out and cause a hernia. Generally, umbilical hernias disappear without medical intervention by the time the infant is a year old and are usually not painful or life-threatening. Surgery is recommended if the hernia is large, becomes infected, is a burden to the child or has not closed up by age five.

Umbilical hernias in adults, however, are a direct result of health issues such as obesity, pregnancy, ascites (excessive fluid in the abdomen), heavy lifting or chronic coughing. In adults, umbilical hernias do not dissipate on their own and can lead to complications such as the development of a strangulated hernia or an incarcerated hernia — both of which require immediate medical attention.

Treating Umbilical Hernias Naturally
Surgery is the recommended treatment for the repair of umbilical hernias in adults, especially if they become strangulated or incarcerated. However, there are some natural remedies for umbilical hernias that can help alleviate the pain as well as help prevent them from forming or recurring. Remedies that may help lessen the pain associated with umbilical hernias as well as possibly stop their formation or recurrence are:

Hawthornia —
a blend of hawthorn, litchi seed, citrus seed and fennel — is widely used in China as a way to strengthen the weakened wall of the abdomen (known as Qi). If used early enough, hawthornia can stop the progression of the umbilical hernia and limit their regrowth.
Using a combination of the herbs Shepherd’s purse as a tincture and lady’s mantle as a tea — both have an astringent effect that constrict the blood vessels and lessen blood flow.
Eating low-fat, higher protein foods such as tuna, chicken, lentils and other beans, cottage cheese and skim milk as protein deficiencies and surplus fat can weaken the abdominal walls and lead to hernia development.
Eating high-fiber foods such as dark green vegetables, fruits and unrefined whole-grains to reduce risk of constipation which can strain the abdominal wall.
Increasing water and/or fluid intake to also reduce risk of constipation.
Engaging in regular exercise to strengthen the core muscles and reduce risk of obesity; however, be aware that exercises that are improperly performed or involve heavy lifting put strain on the abdominal and/or visceral muscles. This can lead to weakening of those muscles and hernia development.
Acupuncture and/or reflexology on the colon, adrenal gland and groin points of the body by a trained professional.
Visceral manipulation by a trained professional.

82. Home remedies for calcium deficiency

Dairy products:
Consumption of calcium rich dairy products like milk, curds, paneer and buttermilk is one of the best ways to rebuild your calcium reserves.

Green leafy vegetables:
Green leafy vegetables like spinach, lettuce, celery, fenugreek (methi) etc. are also good sources of calcium.

Lemon:
A lemon a day keeps the cold away. For a bad cold, the juice of two lemons in ½ a litre (2 1/2 cups) of boiling water sweetened with honey, taken at bed time, is a very effective remedy.

Ginger:
Cut ginger into 1-1 1/2pieces and boil with a cup of water. Give 8-10 boils. Strain, sweeten with ½ teaspoon sugar and drink hot.

Soyabean:
Soyabean and its products like soya flour, soya milk, tofu etc. are valuable sources of calcium and protein. A quarter to half cup of soyabeans in any form is beneficial for those with calcium deficiency. A vegetable made with soyabeans in gravy or chapattis made with Soya flour are the most acceptable dishes for both children and adults.

Sesame seeds (til):
Having 1 to 2 tsp of sesame seeds everyday is an effective way to keep calcium deficiency at bay.

Cumin seeds:
A teaspoon of cumin seeds is added to 1 glass of boiling water. Strain and simmer for a few minutes. Let it cool. Drink it 1 -2 times a day. If sore throat is also present, add a few small pieces of dry ginger to the boiling water.

Tips for increasing calcium intake
Include at least one source of calcium in every meal.
Have at least 100 to 125 grams of one leafy vegetable everyday, either cooked or uncooked.
Consume 2 to 3 glasses of milk in any form (like curds, paneer etc.) to supplement calcium in your diet. Overweight people can use low calorie milk products.
Restrict the consumption of fat, as excessive fat hinders the absorption of calcium in the body.
Have a sunbath every morning, as the early morning sunlight is good for the production of vitamin D which in turn helps in the synthesis of calcium in our body

85. Home remedies to remain active and energetic
Peel one clove of fresh raw garlic and swallow as if it is a pill. ( don’t attempt to swallow a piece of garlic that is larger than you can handle swallowing) Chop it to the size that you feel you can comfortably swallow using only water to help swallow it down. Yup you will have garlic breath for three hours or so, but you may feel a boost in your energy levels within 5 minutes ! ( don’t swallow more than one clove at a time….garlic is a very strong herb and will have dramatic effect on your physical body)

This second remedy has more to do with digestion but may also improve mood and immunity.

Raw ginger can be peeled and then boiled in chunks in water. Add white sugar or honey to the pot and then drink down once cool enough to drink. The raw ginger will reactivate your digestive sytem and reinvigorate your pallete.

86. Home remedy for damaged ligaments
All you need is one egg yolk,
and about 2 Tbsp. of tumeric powder, again I used organic tumeric to get the most healing benefits (in fact I use only organic spices to retain the potent healing properties often lost in traditionally processed irradiated spices, but that will be a topic for another post!)

Simply mix the egg yolk and tumeric into a paste and apply to the affected joint (do not apply to broken skin or open wounds)

87. Vaginal Boils Home Remedies
Boils refer to localized infections that develop in the deeper layers of skin. Boils initially develop as areas of redness and tenderness and in course of time they become firm as pus accumulates in the center. Pus is actually a combination of protein, white blood cells and bacteria and is a result of the body’s natural defense response. The pus forms a head in the center of the boil. The center then turns yellowish or white and ruptures. This causes the pus to drain out.

It is important to treat boils at the earliest, especially vaginal boils. If left untreated, the infection could become aggravated. The pain and discomfort arising from the boil could also worsen. In case severe infection develops, antibiotic medication may be necessary.

A vaginal boil could occur due to various factors. The most common cause of such boils is ingrown hair. Bacteria that are normally present on the skin may infect these hair follicles and lead to the development of a boil. Boils can also occur when a foreign object gets lodged into the skin. A splinter or a fragment of glass could penetrate the skin and get trapped inside, thereby leading to infection.

Other vaginal boils causes include clogged sweat glands. An excess production of sebum or oil can cause a blockage of the pore openings. Bacteria and dirt may then become trapped inside the blocked pore. Clogged sweat glands can also be a result of poor hygiene as dirt and dead skin cells may get stuck inside the pores. In some cases small bruises and scrapes that occur on the skin could get infected and lead to the formation of abscesses. The pus may leak out from the boil and spread to surrounding areas. This could lead to the formation of new boils.

Vaginal boils may be treated with hot or cold compresses. This encourages rupture of the boil and drainage of the pus. Hot compresses have a tendency to improve the blood circulation in the area and this helps the body to fight infection. Swelling and pain arising from the boil may be alleviated by applying an ice pack to the area.

An effective natural cure for boils on vagina are is tea tree oil. This helps to ease the inflammation. One can also apply a paste of turmeric powder and ginger to the boil. Keep the area covered with a piece of gauze for about thirty minutes.
EPSOM SALTS

A sitz bath made with Epsom salts can sooth, cleanse and even help dry a pimple in the vaginal area. To prepare this type of bath, run about two to three inches of warm water in a tub and sprinkle one-half to one cup of Epsom salts into the water. Soak in the tub for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse the area thoroughly after the bath and pat it dry.

88. HOME REMEDIES FOR FUNGAL INFECTION.
Fungal infection is a dreaded disease to women as it causes a lot of embarrassment and discomfort to women of all age groups. Discomfort can be dealt with, but it has negative side effects in a couple’s personal life because intimacy is at risk. Although women suffer the most from this variant of fungal infection, it can occur occasionally in babies as well as men. There are many tried and tested home remedies that are proved to be an effective cure for fungal infection. Given below are 3 common home treatments that can be tried at home and you will notice that the effects of the fungal infection disappear in no time.

1. The first remedy for the fungal infection is yogurt. Yogurt is made up of acidophilic bacteria that are helpful bacteria. These bacteria produce hydrogen peroxide which neutralizes the pH level in the vagina and kills the Candida Albican fungi which is actually the main culprit in this fungal infection. Sugar free yogurt is beneficial to your health too. Yogurt can be applied outside the vagina or also inside using a tampon. Olive oil should be coated on the tampon so as to prevent the tampon from absorbing the yogurt. This can cure the fungal infection within a few days.

2. Another home remedy for treating this fungal infection is vinegar. It is a weak acid and helps in restoring the pH balance in the vagina. Take a tub, add a few drops of vinegar into it, and then sit with your naked hips immersed in the tub for around 30 minutes. This is also called as a Sitz Bath. It is an excellent cure to treat fungal infection. Vinegar is an acid which enters the vagina and kill the fungus which is responsible for the fungal infection.

3. Garlic is also known to help cure fungal infections. It is a very dominant and powerful antiviral and antibacterial agent that can kill the candida fungi and you will notice that the fungal infection symptoms just disappear. See that you apply olive oil on the garlic pod before inserting the garlic pod into the vagina. The olive oil acts as a good lubricant. The above home tips will make you realize that the fungal infection just disappears.

4. Take care of your diet too. Lots of fresh green fruits and vegetables and lots of yogurt will help you tide over this fungal infection pretty fast. See that you wear clean undergarments so that the fungal infection can be controlled. There is no need to panic as the fungal infection has a cure and can be treated with suitable remedies.
