Powerful Natural Remedies For A Sinus Infection

Waking up with a headache, and on top of it a blocked nose is a rough start to the day. If this becomes a routine occurrence and even the face hurts with general heaviness in the head, it’s a medical condition called Sinusitis. Sinuses are air-filled cavities within the skull bone. These hollow spaces in the skull are situated in cheek bones, forehead, behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes. Another set is situated in the upper region of the nose and behind the eyes. All the sinuses have the same lining that is present in the nose. This lining produces mucus, which is drained out of the sinuses through an opening in the nose. When a person has cold or allergy, swelling in the nose and sinuses can cause the drainage to get blocked. This results in the mucus being trapped in the sinuses, leading to the growth of bacteria and viruses. The inflammation of these sinuses is referred to as Sinusitis.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

The symptoms of Sinusitis depend upon the sinus that gets affected. The symptoms include morning headache, blocked sensation in the nose, and heaviness and pain in the facial bones. Inflammation in the sinuses behind the bridge of the nose and in between the eyes can lead to swelling in the eyelids and the tissues around the eyes. Inflammation in the maxillary sinuses can result in pain in the upper jaw and teeth. Symptoms of severe sinus infection may be accompanied by nasal congestion, running nose, fever, tiredness and cough that may aggravate at night. Post-nasal dripping of mucus can cause problems in the throat too.

Western medicine treats sinus infections with antibiotics, steroids, anti-inflammatory medication, and in some cases, surgery.  Most of these methods have high potential to be more harmful than not.

Steam Inhalation- Break up thick mucus with a few drops of Eucalyptus or Peppermint oil in hot water.  With your face down over the water, drape a towel over the back of your head and inhale the steam.

Turmeric/Ginger Root- Turmeric root is a wonderful, fragrant spice commonly found in Indian and some Middle eastern dishes.  Not only does Turmeric contain the natural anti-inflammatory curcumin, this spice is also an anti-oxidant.  When combined with spicy ginger root and brewed for hot tea, this combination can help loosen mucus from clogged nasal passages, alleviate sinus pressure, and make you feel better all around.  Ginger root also has the added bonus of calming an upset stomach – a frequent side-effect of excessive nighttime sinus drainage.

Apple Cider Vinegar- Two or three tablespoons of raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar added to a cup of hot water or tea taken three times daily will help thin out excessive mucus relieving congestion an sinus pressure. 

Vitamin C- Available as tablets, liquid, chewables (as well as some other forms), Vitamin C is perhaps the most popular over-the-counter immune booster.  Studies have shown us that Vitamin C helps the body to resist immune system deficiencies and improves overall health.

Oregano Oil- Just a few drops of oregano oil in a cup of juice, water, or tea each day can make a huge positive impact on your health.  Not only does Oregano oil have anti-biotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties when taken internally, it can also used topically to fight cold sores, nail fungus, and dandruff among other things.  Oregano oil may also be steam-inhaled as an alternative to ingestion.

Get Relief from ECZEMA Naturally!

Eczema is a general term used to describe varying skin conditions that result in inflamed and discoloured skin. Typically the skin is red, dry, inflamed, and occasionally blisters or crusts form. The term eczema is often times used interchangeably with the term dermatitis, which literally translates to “inflamed skin.” There are many types of eczema, but the most common type is atopic eczema. Thought to be hereditary and triggered by allergens, atopic eczema is most common in children, but can reappear during adult years. There is no cure, but figuring out what causes it to flare up and treating the symptoms is usually the course of action to take.

If you have eczema, your skin is most likely producing less fats and oils than it should be, and the ability to retain water is diminished. The space between cells widens since they aren’t plump with moisture, you begin to lose water from the dermis, and irritants and bacteria can enter easier. This is why things like soaps and detergents can worsen eczema, as they strip away what lipids your skin is producing, and it will breakdown faster than healthy skin would to become dry, inflamed, and sometimes cracked or blistered.

Symptoms of eczema include:

Dry, sensitive skin
Intense itching
Red, inflamed skin
Recurring rash
Scaly areas
Rough, leathery patches
Oozing or crusting
Areas of swelling
Dark coloured patches of skin

Here are some of the most common eczema types:

Atopic Dermatitis
Hand Eczema
Contact Dermatitis
Seborrheic Dermatitis
Dyshidrotic Eczema
Nummular Eczema
Stasis Dermatitis

Lose Your Weight And Not Health!


First and foremost, understand your body. Every individual is different and so are the bodies. What might suit one, might not suit the other. So don’t blindly follow something just because the other person said so especially in terms of your health and body. That’s why utmost important is to understand what is good for your body, what are the deficiencies, what should you feed your body to keep it healthy and what not! This will only happen when you start to know your body by keeping a track of everything that you are feeding it in terms of calories, good or bad fat, healthy/unhealthy, etc. When you get on the track of losing weight (losing unwanted bad fat and not muscles) and becoming healthy, slowly you will realise that it becomes a habit and eventually that habit turns into a healthy lifestyle.

What is losing weight in a healthy way?

Remember Losing Weight Not Health!

Healthy habits can go out the window when we’ve got no time for the gym and few options besides Seamless. Losing weight isn't easy—and doing it in a healthy, sustainable way can make the task feel even harder. Making small changes each day is one way to get started.

Maintaining a healthy weight is a key consideration for good health. However, when many of us try to drop a few pounds we go about it in the wrong way. If you’re not sure if you need to lose weight then knowing your BMI can be a good starting point and help you figure out whether you are the right weight for your height. Check your waist circumference too as your body shape is also important. Carrying too much weight around the middle increases risk, even if BMI is within the healthy range.

When it comes to getting the weight off, everyone wants to lose weight quickly, and there are many diets out there promising instant results. But while they might work in the short term, more often than not they are difficult to stick to and so the weight quickly comes back on.

What are the Do’s and Don’ts?

Diet Rules to Follow!

Don't skip breakfast- Eat breakfast. It'll energize you for the day and keep your diet in check.

Avoid late-night snacks- Finish eating three hours before bedtime. Your metabolism slows down when you sleep so you shift from fat burning to fat storage.

Start with greens- Eat in the right order. Eat vegetables first to naturally have more of them and ultimately eat fewer calories.

Snack away- Eat every three to four hours so you'll be equipped to say no to temptations.

Say no to soda- Regular soda drinking may make muscles less likely to burn fat.

Fill up on fiber and protein- Enjoy so many non-starchy vegetables, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins that you're too full for anything else.

Tired Seeing Your Drooping Belly!

Turmeric Powder- Turmeric contains curcumin, a yellow, plant-based pigment, which works as an anti-inflammatory agent, and it may assist your body in metabolizing fat, potentially promoting weight loss. Curcumin significantly lowers serum cholesterol and proteins that play a role in fat production. It may speed up fat metabolism and have an overall lowering effect on body fat and total weight.

Dry Ginger Powder- Ginger improves satiety and thus prevents one from over eating. Ginger lowers fat absorption while eating high fat diet. It stimulates pancreatic activity and increases the production of bile salts. Ginger helps in weight loss by serving as a digestive help. An effective digestive system helps in ingesting food efficiently and can contribute to weight loss as bulk of the food is processed and eliminated out of the body. Effective digestion helps in using up of the glucose in the blood and stored fat. Ginger also helps in weight loss by improving metabolism. Ginger is found to be a thermogenic agent that helps in burning fat. The stored fat in the body can be burnt off by the increased rate of metabolism.

Kidney Stones/Disease Can be Horrendous! Ease it with Natural Tips!

Kidney disease is a growing problem. Anyone can develop kidney disease, regardless of age or race. The main risk factors for developing kidney disease are Diabetes, High blood pressure, Cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease, and a family history of kidney failure. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the most common causes of kidney disease.
These conditions can slowly damage the kidneys over many years.

Let’s First Understand-

What are the kidneys and what do they do?

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of a fist. They are located just below the rib cage, one on each side of the spine. Every day, the two kidneys filter about 120 to 150 quarts of blood to produce about 1 to 2 quarts of urine, composed of wastes and extra fluid. The urine flows from the kidneys to the bladder through two thin tubes of muscle called ureters, one on each side of the bladder. The bladder stores urine. The muscles of the bladder wall remain relaxed while the bladder fills with urine. As the bladder fills to capacity, signals sent to the brain tell a person to find a toilet soon. When the bladder empties, urine flows out of the body through a tube called the urethra, located at the bottom of the bladder. In men the urethra is long, while in women it is short.

Why are the kidneys important?

The kidneys are important because they prevent the build up of wastes and extra fluid in the body keeping levels of electrolytes stable, such as sodium, potassium, and phosphate making hormones that help regulate blood pressure, make red blood cells, and bones stay strong.

How do the kidneys work?

Is Your Metabolism Holding You Back? Boost It Naturally!

Metabolism”- We’ve all got one, but some have faster or slower than others. And that matters because the rate at which your body burns calories and converts fuel to energy can also affect how easily you gain or lose weight.

While a properly working metabolism is definitely important for preventing unwanted weight gain, boosting your metabolism is also critical for many other bodily functions related to maintaining general health.

So what is metabolism?

Metabolism describes all the chemical processes that go on continuously inside the body to keep you alive and your organs functioning normally, such as breathing, repairing cells and digesting food. These chemical processes require energy. The minimum amount of energy your body requires to carry out these chemical processes is called the basal metabolic rate (BMR).

Your BMR accounts for anything between 40% and 70% of your body’s daily energy requirements depending on your age and lifestyle. A ‘slow metabolism’ is more accurately described as a low BMR.

Do some people have a faster metabolism than others?

Body size, age, gender and genes all play a role in determining your metabolic rate.

Muscle cells require more energy to maintain than fat cells, so people with a higher muscle to fat ratio tend to have a higher BMR.

As we get older, we tend to gain fat and lose muscle. This explains why the BMR tends to decrease with age.
In general, men tend to have a faster metabolism as they have more muscle mass, heavier bones and less body fat than women, which is why their daily calorie allowance is higher.

The lower your muscle mass, the slower your metabolism. With less muscle and a slower metabolism, it then becomes a lot easier to put body fat back on after coming off the diet.

Your metabolism naturally slows steadily after age 40, which means you need to proactively add certain metabolism boosters into your daily life to keep yourself feeling and acting young.

When you have a sluggish metabolism, the body’s natural defense mechanism and levels of immunity drop and you become more susceptible to various infections that surround us.

Here are common signs you’re suffering from less than ideal metabolic functioning-

Ways to Thyroid Cure & Prevention!

The thyroid – a small gland in the neck, located just underneath the Adam’s apple – has two main functions which are essential to the health of the human body which are to maintain the proper concentration of calcium ions in the blood stream and to regulate metabolism, including the digestion and processing of proteins. The thyroid is responsible for a lot of things! It regulates your metabolism, keeps you at a healthy weight, makes energy, keeps your moods balanced and even, helps you get a sound night sleep and helps you have good digestion. In fact, your thyroid plays a part in almost every physiological process. That is why, when it’s not working optimally, it can really wreck havoc in your life.

The thyroid, though small otherwise, is one of the largest glands in the endocrine system. Diseases of the endocrine system are mostly caused due to production disorders that lead to inadequacy or excess of hormones or inappropriate response to hormones by tissues.

The thyroid hormone is produced by hypothalamus, pituitary glands and the thyroid gland which is situated just below the larynx. The thyroid gland is a key component of the endocrine system and its basic function to convert iodine from your dietary intake into thyroid hormones. These hormones are essential in regulating your metabolism and even a small variation in the amount that is produced can have a dramatic effect on the body.

Grow Taller! Interesting Tips to Gain Height!

Some people are blessed with good height and yet there are others who are not so tall and wish to be some inches taller than they are. We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 24 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body.

Read on to know the health tips, exercises and yoga, and the diet tips to gain height-

Sound Sleep- Our body grows and regenerates tissues when we sleep or take rest. It is believed that Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is produced naturally during the time when we have a sound sleep. As a rule, growing children and teenagers must have at least 8 to 11 hours of proper sleep every night so that they can reach their maximum height.

Exercises- When you are physically active; the body requires more healthy nutrients. Regular intake of nutrients boosts your nutrition and consequently, results in proper growth. Yoga, Cycling, swimming, basketball, tennis, stretching are a good way to keep the body physically active.

Yoga- Yogic gurus and research studies have also shown that Yoga and proper breathing techniques can play a fantastic role in increasing your height naturally. It is said that when we inhale deeply during yoga exercises, we release the stress that causes tension in your back muscles, which in turn removes the obstacle to enhance growth of the body. There are also a number of yoga postures which are particularly helpful in increasing your height. 

These yoga postures for keeping your body upright and increasing height are as follows:

Surya Namaskar- This is an age-old yoga exercise with 12 different postures and performed in a chronological manner.

Embarassing Dark Patches on Face! Melasma, Lighten it Naturally!

Melasma, also known as, Chloasma or Hyperpigmentation, is a skin condition that causes an overproduction in melanin to occur in an area of skin causing irregular darker patches of skin to visibly appear. The discoloration typically covers different parts of the face including the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose, above the upper lip and chin. The condition typically appears in women ages 20 to 50 years old. The cause of melasma is not known; however, it is commonly associated with exposure to the sun, oral contraceptives and pregnancy.

Hyperpigmentation is one of the most common and one of the hardest to get rid of. There are plenty of different reasons for dark spots to show up on our face that have nothing to do with acne or a poor skin routine. Often, melasma is caused by the UVA rays from the sun which is why suncreen or natural protection from the sun is essential in our skincare. Even if you're diligent about your daily SPF, melasma can also occur from hormonal changes from pregnancy and birth control pills.

Several factors trigger the formation of dark patches on the face. Some of these include the following:

Hormonal fluctuation is the leading cause of melasma in many people. It occurs when the hormone estrogen stimulates the formation of pigmentation, causing dark, blotchy and uneven patches on the face.

Prolonged exposure to the sun can trigger melasma.

Genetic predisposition is another reason for melasma to appear on the skin.

Use of oral contraceptives, drugs such as tetracycline and quinine may also trigger the formation of pigmentation on the skin.

Good news for pregnant ladies is that your pregnancy and melasma will most likely be over soon. Natural and conventional treatments for hormonal melasma should only be started when birth control is stopped else there are chances of making it worse.

Struggling to Gain Weight! Start NOW on these easy tips!

Despite an obesity epidemic, some children, teenagers and even adults are underweight. Being underweight is not the same as being thin or slim. Some people have a naturally slim build and maintain it with a well-balanced diet and physical activity. However, true underweight may be a sign of dietary, health or emotional problems. This is a concern, because being underweight can be just as bad for your health as being obese.

If you are concerned about being underweight, consult your physician first. Assuming you have no underlying medical concerns, the idea will then be to encourage weight gain in a healthful way. Empty calories from foods high in fat and added sugars might add a few kilos but they will not provide the essential nutrients needed to build strong bones and a healthy body. If you are underweight, make sure that you take a nutrient-rich diet.

What is Underweight?

Being underweight is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) below 18.5. This is estimated to be less than the body mass needed to sustain optimal health.

Being underweight can also impair immune function; raise your risk of infections, osteoporosis and fractures, and cause fertility problems. People who are underweight are also much more likely to get sarcopenia (age-related muscle wasting) and may be at greater risk of dementia.

Causes of being Underweight- Thesemay besome of the reasons for being underweight. However, it is best to see a doctor to find the real cause.

Say No to Hairfall with these simple tips!

Hair loss affects millions of people. It can affect both men and women. While genes play a vital role, there are usually other reasons as well, including, hormonal imbalances, an under-active thyroid gland, nutritional deficiencies and insufficient blood circulation in the scalp. There are a number of causes behind hair loss, including male pattern baldness, alopecia, fungal infections, and psychological disorders, as a result of chemotherapy, nutrient deficiencies, or hormonal imbalances. Also, a lack of circulation on the scalp can also cause hair loss in men and women, both.

Human hair naturally grows in three phases:

Anagen - Anagen is the active or growing phase.  

Catagen - Catagen is a short phase of the natural hair cycle during which hairs begin to break down.  

Telogen - Telogen is the resting phase. The hairs that are shed daily are often in the resting or late phase in the hair cycle.

Normally, about 10% of the scalp hairs are in the resting or telogen phase at any time. These hairs are not growing and are getting prepared for cyclic shedding.

The human scalp has around 1, 00,000 – 1, 50,000 hair follicles.

Each follicle grows a hair continuously up to age 8.

The average scalp has up to 150,000 hairs.

Each follicle produces a single hair that grows at a rate of half an inch per month.

After growing for two to six years, hair rests awhile before falling out.

It is soon replaced with a new hair, and the cycle begins again.

At any given time, 85% of hair is growing, and the remainder is resting.

Per experts, a normal human being can lose nearly 100 hair strands per day without any significant worry; however, losing more than 200 on a regular basis should attract immediate attention. Hair fall, if within normal limits, is a regular process. As new hair grows, old ones give way by falling off.

Do you have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)! Find out!

The term “polycystic” literally means that a woman’s ovaries have multiple small cysts on them, which is caused from ovaries not being released normally and therefore, building up in the ovaries into little “sacks.” Normally, the ovaries release a small amount of male sex hormones (called androgens), but in women with PCOS, their ovaries start making slightly more androgens. Polycystic ovary syndrome is a common condition related to a hormonal imbalance in women of reproductive age. It is characterized by high levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. The condition leads to issues like changes in the menstrual cycle, cysts on the ovaries and fertility problems.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or “multiple ovarian cysts” affect many teenage girls and adult women.   PCOS often begins shortly after puberty and can persist for years without showing any signs or symptoms. It can be a frustrating, and sometimes painful condition. However, there are natural treatment options available that are safe and effective even for teenage girls.

What are ovarian cysts?

Ovarian cysts are formed when ovulation doesn’t occur as it is supposed to.  Within each ovary there are sacs called follicles that contain eggs.  Normally, one or more eggs are released during each menstrual cycle – this is ovulation.  In PCOS the eggs within the follicles do not mature and are not released from the ovaries.  Instead, they form small cysts in the ovary – ovarian cysts.

Signs and Symptoms of PCOS- Having ovarian cysts is not enough for a diagnosis of polycystic ovaries.  You also must have other symptoms of PCOS. Typically a combination of the following symptoms is present:

Home Remedies for Varicose Veins!

Varicose veins are unsightly, swollen and twisted veins that can be seen just underneath the surface of the skin. They commonly appear in the legs and can cause pain, swelling, blood clots, skin sores, and ulcers. While arteries transmit blood from the heart to the rest of the body, the veins return the blood from the rest of the body to the heart. The veins have one-way valves that push the blood back to the heart. If the valves are weak or damaged, then the blood can back up and get stored in the veins causing the veins to bulge, resulting in the formation of varicose veins. Some of the common varicose veins causes are progressing age, obesity, overweight issues, pregnancy, prolonged standing or sitting. The problem of varicose veins can be easily treated with home remedies, combining them with some healthy lifestyle changes and daily workouts to lose fat, control body weight prevent obesity and remain active.

Lifestyle Changes- Spider veins and varicose veins are painful. Certain positive changes in the daily habits and lifestyle can cure varicose veins and also prevent their appearance in future.

Family History- Varicose veins is a hereditary disease, and it can run in families. It is believed that weakness or fault in the gene governs the development of this vascular problem. If you have a family history of varicose veins, then start following the preventing measures right away.

Wow! Amazing Uses of Rice Water for Skin & Hair!

Rice Powder or rice flour is made by grinding the uncooked rice into a fine powder whereas Rice water is the nutrient-rich water that comes from soaking or cooking the rice. Rice water is cloudy in appearance.

Rice contains a high concentration of PABA (para aminobenzoic acid) which is a very good sunscreen. When taken internally, PABA also raises the Vitamin C levels in our bodies. Rice also contains two other sun protecting agents – Ferulic acid and Allantoin. Ferulic acid is an antioxidant. Incredibly, scientists have found that when ferulic acid is added to Vitamin C and E, its sun protection ability doubles.  Allantoin is a good anti-inflammatory agent. It soothes sunburns and also promotes the skin’s repair.  When applied as a paste on the skin, rice powder has been shown to inhibit tyrosinase.

Rice Flour for Hair

It is extremely wonderful for hair. A mixture/paste of rice water either soaked overnight or cooked and Shikakai Powder is prepared. The quantity for this depends on your hair length. Prepare the mixture and apply this to your hair roots and lengths. Let it sit for 20 mins and then wash thoroughly with lukewarm water. You can follow this with your shampoo and conditioner. As Shikakai can be quite drying on the hair, so we always mix it up with conditioning ingredients like rice water. You can repeat this weekly once. Try it and see how smooth and shiny your hair turns.

Rice flour face pack for Glowing Skin

Take one teaspoonful of rice flour and mix half teaspoonful of oats and some honey to make a paste of the two ingredients. Apply it on the face and after 15-20 minutes. Gently scrub this face pack from the face to reveal a clear and glowing face. This is good to get rid of the flaky peeling dry skin and to whiten the dry face.
