Alternative herbal medicine

Some people use alternative herbal medicine to treat a number of bodily disorders. This is so because alternative herbal medicine provides the same beneficial treatment without having to worry about fatal side effects. Most alternative herbal medicines are relatively safe to use if taken at recommended dosage.

To treat alcoholism, capsules of gamma linoleic acid (GLA) from evening primrose, borage or currant seed oils are the best alternative herbal medicine for controlling alcoholism. Valerian herb could also slow down brain cell damage due to excessive alcohol consumption. Skullcap is another alternative herbal medicine that could effectively lessen anxiety due to physical and emotional exhaustion.

To treat depression and anxiety, the alternative herbal medicines recommended are St. John’s wort, valerian and hops, ashwaganda, ginseng and Motherwort. To treat insomnia, the alternative herbal medicines you should use are ginger tea, chamomile, lemon balm and linden. Essential oils of peppermint, eucalyptus and lavender can be used as a compress to relieve headache. To treat partial memory loss, alternative herbal medicines recommended for use are four Gs- gingko biloba, ginseng, Siberian ginseng and gotu kola. To relieve from pain and inflammation, use meadowsweet and willow bark. Both contain salicin which is converted by the stomach to salicylic acid, the key ingredient in aspirin. Ginger is another pain reliever which works by reducing prostaglandin. Stress is another ailment that can be effectively treated with alternative herbal medicine. Ginseng and Siberian ginseng are potent stress relievers. Angina and irregular heartbeat can be regulated by alternative herbal medicine such as hawthorn, ginseng, motherwort, valerian and even pineapple.

About 80 percent of the pharmaceutical drugs being sold today are based on herbs. These drugs are not derived from the entire herb, but based on its one major active ingredient. In turn, this extracted substance is used to treat a specific illness. While herbs can effectively relieve the body from various illnesses, still they could not replace the prescription drugs in treating life-threatening illnesses. Being an alternative herbal medicine, it could not be viewed as replacement but as complement to prescription drugs that could be a potent way to heal body conditions.

Herbs unlike prescription drugs do not need to be patented. You do not need to buy and spend huge sums of money for them. They can be readily found in your garden especially if you cultivate them. If bought, they cost lesser than conventional dugs. And the effects of alternative herbal medicines are quite potent too.

Shoudl You Be Taking Any Kind Of Supplements?

Shoudl You Be Taking Any Kind Of Supplements?

In nowadays very fast paced world we do not eat a correct diet all of the time. Whenever you lead a busy life and do not acquire adequate vitamins for your body to function properly then you should be compensating with natural vitamin supplements.

Diet nutritional supplements are intended for ingestion in capsule, pill, tablet, liquid, or powder form. They are clearly labeled as “dietary supplements,” and, by law, should not be represented as conventional food. It is not intended for supplanting a proper meal, or be made as a sole item of a diet. In the US, diet nutritional supplements are defined under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 to contain one or more of the following ingredients:

Naturally, the most obvious benefit to adopting multi vitamin supplements is convenience. It is far more easily for a person to accept one dosage of a multi vitamin supplement that incorporates each of the needed vitamins compared to adopting each one one by one. This is particularly the case for children as it could be hard for them to accept a large number of vitamin supplements but one dosage of a multi vitamin supplement is far easier.

Vitamins that are water soluble are the easiest to use, as they will pass through the body easily and quickly, and should be taken three times a day. Vitamins that are fat soluble are best absorbed if they are taken with food that contains fat. You should always take vitamins with meals, as the minerals and nutrients found in food will work with the vitamin supplements.

Our organisms require great nutrition in order to function correctly. Our organisms require adequate necessary vitamins to habitually make it through the day and with our daily nutrients intake not supplying each of the necessary nutrients the need for a vitamin supplement has never been bigger.

To make the decision simpler there are now a many of multi vitamin supplements produced for unique people. For instance, there are multi vitamin supplements that are designed for children. These multi vitamin supplements holds the unique nutrients that children need for them to grow and acquire properly. Pregnant women have singular nutrient necessities to assure that their baby encounters the essential nutrients and there are multi vitamin supplements prepared for pregnant women.

Vitamin supplements are available in a number of different forms, including capsules, tabs, liquids, and even chewable tabs. Also, there is a big variety in the brands and the real content of the vitamin supplements.Do some research and find out what these vitamin supplements carries. Pay attention to doses, ingredients, safety precautions, and other authorative information.Buy the correct supplement for you, and when in doubt, consult a physician or your health professional prior to taking any vitamin supplements.

Herbal Weight Loss Pills

Herbal Weight Loss Pills

As the desire for losing weight continues to affect many people, several herbal weight loss pills are developed and distributed throughout the world. Today, whether you surf on the internet or walk into a certain health food store, herbal weight loss pills are definitely there.

There are basically different components in herbal weight loss pills. There are those herbal weight loss pills that contain ephedra, and there are also some herbal weight loss pills that contain HCA or hydroxycitric acid, PPA or phenylpropanolamine, and pyruvate. Each type component in such herbal weight loss pills has different functions and of course they have different effects.

For instance, the ephedra in herbal weight loss pills is considered by the Food and Drug administration as potentially hazardous. In fact, ephedra is the main ingredient in the so called “natural” herbal alternatives to “fen-phen”, which is a now banned prescription anti-obesity drug. These types of herbal weight loss pills are largely considered by the FDA as unapproved diet pills that have not been tested for its safety and efficacy.

Besides, ephedra is the natural source of the amphetamine-like stimulant known as ephedrine. Although it is a potent decongestant, and it suppress appetite as well as burns fat quickly, the risks of taking ephedra in herbal weight loss pills far overshadow its benefits. It has been found out that ephedra in herbal weight loss pills results to serious reactions such as soaring blood pressure, irregular heart beat, insomnia, tremors, seizures, heart attacks, and stroke.

In terms of the HCA in herbal weight loss pills, it is noted that this herbal extract which is also present in at least 14 commercial weight loss pills, slows down the conversion of carbohydrates into fat, thus this component of the herbal weight loss pills does aid weight loss.

Herbal weight loss pills also contain pyruvate, which is a natural compound that is derived from all plants and animals. This has gained popularity as a weight loss aid, but one should be aware that taking large amounts of herbal weight loss pills that contain this compound can lead to intestinal distress, bloating, and diarrhea. So, one should be wary in taking pyruvate herbal weight loss pills.

Lastly, the PPA contained in herbal weight loss pills was considered as the most renowned weight loss drug in many parts of the world. However, it does not win that position with excellent effects. Many experts have concluded that PPA was too risky to be available in prescription drugs and so they called for manufacturers to stop selling drugs containing this compound. Just like the ephedra, this also causes extreme spikes in blood pressure, headaches, strokes, and even death.

Self Help For Women

Self Help For Women

Self Help has come a long way in the past several decades. It used to be that “women’s issues” weren’t even thought of let alone specialized in Universities, counseling centers and books all over the world. In just a few short decades, self help for women has burgeoned into a major industry and a worldwide movement. Entire countries that used to promote traditional cultures where women were expected to be submissive to their husbands are now taking up new values and becoming part of a globalization of equality.

Women’s issues were traditionally overlooked in the past largely because of the fact that the jobs were simply held by men and the economy and industry of publications and counseling were exclusively male driven. Today, things have changed and there is plenty of self help available for specific women’s issues as well. Women have issues that they still face concerning self esteem, sexuality and even “the perfect body image” but they can now face these issues out in the open and learn to grow and change just like men are doing. As human beings, we all have issues to contend with and none of us are perfect. It is a great step that we can now recognize this together and learn to grow spiritually regardless of our genders.

Some of the women’s issues which are constantly challenged by the media and by product advertising today concern objectification and marginalization. These are issues that concern women individually and often require a person who has already “been there” who can help. One great program which has pioneered the movement against the marginalization of women is the Oprah Winfrey Show. Setting herself apart from many other self help guru’s, Oprah avoids much of the negative language aimed against men and instead focuses on the solutions that women can use to overcome in society. The Oprah Winfrey Show also raises awareness of many other issues outside of just women’s self help and thereby makes itself accessible to an even wider audience. This places the struggle for women’s self esteem and self empowerment into a larger context of world issues rather than cutting it off from its connection to all issues that face humanity. Greater self esteem for women means greater self esteem for everyone and the Oprah Winfrey Show has been a great benefit to humanity because of this fact.

Self help books for women are widespread but some of the earlier works are especially notable for those who wish to get a foundational understanding of the issues. Interestingly, Anna Freud, the daughter of Dr. Sigmund Freud actually contributed to the work of psychoanalysis in a very profound way when she wrote the famous work The Ego and Mechanisms of Defense. This is one of the classic works of psychoanalysis which actually brought together many of her father’s ideas in a more succinct and clear fashion thus making them more easily identifiable for all people. Another great book which is part of the classic works on women’s issues comes from Nancy Friday and is entitled My Mother Myself. Here, Nancy Friday investigates the core issues which involve women in relationship with their mother’s and uncovers the common reasons for self esteem issues in women. She leads the reader to a deeper understanding of herself so that she may identify her issues more readily and find a way to move ahead in her life. Although a third book has been largely left behind in terms of the women’s movement, Carol Gilligan’s book In a Different Voice was a groundbreaking work decades ago in terms of the women’s movement and is still offered in many University courses today.

Wherever you choose to start, there is a wellspring of information on women’s self help today. Women have taken the lead in terms of personal growth in many areas and have caused men to stand up and take notice as they lead the way into a better future for all of us.

Choosing Your Fitness Equipment

Choosing Your Fitness Equipment

Fitness equipment is a large group of tools that are used in exercise and are referred to also as exercise equipment. These can include simple items such as balls, track shoes and skipping ropes as well as more complex pieces of equipment such as treadmills, weights, bicycles and many others. Today a wide range of fitness equipment is available for sale with new designs constantly being produced due to the high demand for equipment that is effective in building muscles and strength as well as for losing weight.

Some of the types of fitness equipment available for use can be classified according the type of exercise for which they are built. The first class to be discussed is the strength training equipment. These include free weights and machines referred to as the resistance machines.

The most common type of resistance machine is one that uses gravity as a resistance source. This design is used mainly in weight machines. Gravity in combination with a simple design of pulleys, wheels and inclines, uses a percentage of the weight of the user as the resistance transferred. Other types of resistance machines can use other forces other than gravity to provide resistance. These include friction, spring-loaded, fan-loaded or fluid-loaded machines.

Another type of equipment belonging to the strength training equipment is the bands and tubing, which are lightweight options for training at home and in the office.

The other class is the aerobic fitness equipment which is mainly the endless-path machines. These include devices such as the stationary bicycles, the treadmills, the elliptical trainers, aerobic riders, the stair climbers, the ski and rowing machines. The stationary bicycle focuses the exercise on the legs by the action of pedaling. The treadmills are an all body exercise as you may walk or run at various speeds. There are also some models that can simulate slopes for a more intense workout.

The stair climbers replicate the action of climbing a stairway. This device now also has modifications that replicate the pulling up action off the hands for a more through workout. The skiing and rowing machines work both the arms and legs simultaneously with the rowing machine also working the back muscles. The elliptical trainers are a cross between the stair climbers and the ski machines. The aerobic riders also exercise the arms and legs at the same time by the use of a simultaneous pull and push motion.

There is also a miscellaneous group of fitness equipment. These include items such as heart rate monitors and exercise balls as well as many others. The heart rate monitors are used as a motivational tool in exercise as they monitor the heart rate and provide feedback to the individual exercising. The use of exercise balls has become very important in training such as flexibility training and for balance as well.

When using any type of fitness equipment it is always important to seek professional advice as the improper use of this equipment can cause severe damage.

Cambodian Women and Barriers to Social Participation

Cambodian Women and Barriers to Social Participation

"Women hold more than half of the sky" — (Chinese Saying)
But why women are the ones who suffer the greatest discriminations and pains?
Women account for more than fifty percent of the overall Cambodian population; furthermore, all work related to society, culture, politics, economics, humanity, etc., won’t attain great achievement, unless women are allowed to take part. Since antiquity, Cambodia was a women-headed state (story of male/female hill, as a unique example), which means women held important roles in leadership in almost all fields. In contrast, why the number of women today, participated in society-related especially in the decision-making work, has ominously diminished, compared to men’s, in today’s Cambodia ?
Cultural Factor
In retrospect traditionally, Cambodian women were edified to bear in mind the quality of "Khmerness"; virtue, gentleness, unconditional gratitude to parents, seriousness, loyalty…etc. Due to all of these cultural constraints, Cambodian women had to follow them without knowing any original meanings. I am not criticizing these Cambodia ’s spirits that has, thousands of years, nicknamed Cambodia "The Golden territory," but I want our teachers/professors/students to explain and think deeper about these values; when "calmness is gold," and when "to venture expression for better tomorrow." Too many women are being negatively tolerant to their husbands’ violence, unsafe sex, physical exploitations, etc. These women don’t venture to liberate themselves from these exploitations, because they think they would destroy the well-beings, and fames of the families and themselves.
Questioned by Phnom Penh Post, "What are the pressing issues affecting women in Cambodia now" in June 7 – 20, 2002 , Her Excellency Mu Sochua, Minister for Women’s and Veteran’s Affairs answered, "Society has to change its mentality. A woman’s role is not just about raising children, being a good mother, the mother of the universe. The man’s role is also about being the father of the universe. For the woman it is about making safe choices for herself and not letting anyone else make those choices. Does she have a chance to say: ‘No, that is not the man I want to marry’ or ‘I want to stay in school’? If those choices are open to men they should also be open to women. It is the only way for long-term development in Cambodia . Look at garment factory workers, the majority of whom are women. They don’t have choices and in the next five years if they stay in the same position without anyone to help them increase their capacity, education and skills they will be kicked out and replaced and left on their own." Such a social mentality may probably the most appropriate answer to "why women almost always lag behind men in social participation?"
Girls are thought as more grateful, caring to parents than boys, so it is boy’s absolute opportunity to pursue education, if the schools are too far away from home or if the family can support only one child’s education.
Stereotype of Cambodian Literature
In teaching Cambodian literature, most stories narrate about main male characters as the brave, intelligent, creative, loyal men, and female main characters are usually excellent housewives. This is one of the elements that have extremely discouraged the Cambodian women, and step by step have inserted into Cambodian women’s mentality. Story is one of the most effective means to psychological education for Cambodian people, so turning Cambodian stories into better gender balance would dramatically contribute to gender equity.
Besides this, in the past Cambodia, most or all of education centers were located in the pagodas, and most of the students were male, so female students were strongly discouraged by the majority of the male students.
What Can Be Done?
As stated previously, gender inequality has been in children’s mind since they are at the very young age. So girls must be given equal treatment and opportunities from the very beginning, as stated by World Declaration on the Survival, Protection and Development of Children.
Gender discrimination was instigated in the family, so there should be programs to explain the parents or heads of the families the values of education to girls, what would affect the girls’ future, and the nation as the whole.
Turning the drafted law related to women’s protection into reality. As Mu Sochua stated, "saying ‘yes I understand I have rights’ is not enough." She continued: "But how are women going to use them when they have fewer choices than boys and less chance to stay through school all the way to tertiary level?"
Families and government should try their utmost to alleviate discrimination in the field of education such as:
schools, specially programs and training programs open only to boys and men; higher paid, higher status teaching positions open only to male educators; testing methods biased in favor of boys (e.g,. questions that reflect the interest and vocabulary of most boys). And remove discrimination against women in all two levels:
At work and in the community At work where they are exploited more than men and given unskilled jobs or lower wages than men. Imagine if you were a woman, living in Cambodia : What would be your most pressing difficulties, and what would be your highest desires? How would you handle those hardships?

Are you having trouble building muscle?

Are you having trouble building muscle?

Have you been going to the gym regularly for months and haven’t been able to put on any serious poundage? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to take a step back and make some plans. Building muscle is not rocket science. There are four key factors that will mean the difference between building muscle and staying skinny. You have to ask yourself these four questions.

Is my diet optimized for building muscle?

It’s time to get out of the “3 meals per day” mentality. If you want to gain (or lose) weight you need to feed your body whole foods, six times per day. This means splitting your large meals up and eating about once every three hours. Not only is this good for your metabolism, but your body will use the foods instead of storing them as fat.

Your six meals per day should consist of mainly complex carbohydrates and protein. You should aim for at least thirty grams of protein per meal. High protein foods include lean meat, chicken, fish, egg whites, cheese and milk products. Complex carbohydrates are found in brown rice, brown bread and potatoes. Stay away from foods high in salt and sugar

Should I be using supplements, and when should I be taking them?

If you can afford supplements you should be using them. The basic three you should be considering are protein, carbs and creatine. Whey protein supplements are the fastest known way to deliver quality protein to your muscles. This makes shakes particularly effective after your workouts, when your body is craving protein for muscle re-growth.

There are three key times that supplements should be taken. First thing in the morning, after your workout and before bed. If your diet is up to scratch you shouldn’t need supplements at any other time. Don’t use supplements to replace meals. Supplements are supplements, not meal replacements.

Am I training hard and not smart?

The biggest mistake the new lifters make is thinking that the more they workout the bigger they’ll get. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Two basic rules you must remember when it comes to weight training. First, quality is better than quantity. Second, compound exercises are the kings of building muscle.

Compound exercises require at least two joint movements. Big compound exercises are the squat, bench press, wide grip pull up and seated row. These movements recruit many more muscles fibers to use to move the weight. This means more muscle groups are worked, the exercise is more challenging and the potential for growth is much greater.

Generally you should be doing three compound exercises for one isolation exercise. For example your back/biceps workout might consist of wide grip pull ups, seated row, bent over row and standing bicep curl. You might think this is not enough work for your biceps? Wrong. Your biceps are worked heavily in all over these exercises; the bicep curl just finishes them off.

The length of any training session should not exceed one hour. And you only need to train one muscle group once per week. This means a split routine should only need to be three days per week. In fact, most professional bodybuilders only train four times per week. Remember, it’s quality not quantity.

Do I get enough rest and recovery time?

When you workout you’re not building your muscles, you’re breaking them down. The reason why you looked “pumped up” when you’re in the gym is because your muscle tissue is swollen and damaged. Your muscles actually grow when you are resting. So in simple terms, no rest equals no muscle growth.

So take it easy when you’re not working out. Ease up on the cardio. And make sure you get plenty of sleep. Sleep is the body’s number one time for building muscle. This is also why it’s important to eat before bed, so your body has the fuel to repair muscle in your sleep.

Simple isn’t it?

So you can see that despite what you read in magazines or on the web about building muscle, it’s surprisingly simple. If you get the four aspects I have mentioned in this article right, you will build muscle. If you’ve got any questions, I’m available on the forum on my site. See links in my bio.

Power Yoga – Powering it up

Power Yoga – Powering it up

We may not be familiar with power yoga as it is not fully introduced to us. Power yoga is known as the western version of Ashtanga Yoga which brought by the Indians.

Beryl Bender Birch was the one who gave the term Power Yoga. He was a teacher of Ashtanga Yoga and at the same time an author of Power Yoga.

Yoga was inspired and was brought to the west by the renowned Sanskrit Scholar Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The people of the west were inspired with his Ashtanga Yoga and also his philosophies.

Power Yoga is described to be the the practice of Yoga Poses which is done continuously in a series of exercises without stopping. The practice is accompanied by the Vinsaya which is known as riding the breath. This enables you to make certain movements from one pose to another.

The power yoga is characterized by vigorous exercises which challenges your physical and mental ability and concentration. This enables you to reach your inner power and connect with it.

The difference of power yoga is that the poses are done faster in a pace. This practice is essential and helpful in increasing your physical endurance.

Power yoga enables you to maintain and keep up a good focus at a longer time without breaking or distracting your concentration. if you need to fully concentrate with something, power yoga might just be the right type for you.

Power yoga has some similarities with the modified versions of Ashtanga Yoga. The certain practices of Iyengar yoga and Bikram also influenced power yoga.

Just like Bikram Yoga, notice that Power Yoga also applies the execution of the common basic yoga poses which is a good practice because even the beginners can do it.

Power yoga also adapted some practices of the Iyengar Yoga which gives emphasis on the form and alignment during the practice. It also includes practice in holding a pose longer without breaking which aims to achieve maximum benefits.

Although Power Yoga has been influenced by a lot of yoga types, still it aims on the steps of Classical Yoga. It aims to unite the body, the spirit and the mind uniquely. The main objective of yoga is for you to be able to connect to your inner power and to reach every level through the poses and practices.

With the help of power Yoga, you can dig deep to your physical, mental and spiritual power.

Power yoga is considered a good training for athletes. Not only does it train them to concentrate deeply but it also aids them in the prevention of injuries and rehabilitation that may come.

If you want to do Power Yoga, you should know first if your health condition can withstand the practice. You should know that Power Yoga is dine in a heated room which is perfectly designed to increase the strength and flexibility, increase your concentration, release tension, stamina and tone in your body which is achieved and released through sweat.

Power yoga can be taught by teachers but there might be some differences depending upon who is teaching it. The people who are healthy and fit can do and practice power yoga. If you enjoy doing exercises and if you want less chanting, power yoga is the best style for you.
