Can-C – A Natural Remedy for Cataracts.

How does a nonsurgical cure for cataracts sound? The makers of Can -C eye drops (N-acetylcarnosine) claim to have more than a 80% improvement for all people with cataracts. This is great news for people who want a natural remedy for cataracts and do not want to or cannot have surgery to remove the cataract.

Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness. They can occur at any time in life but and are usually associated with aging. They can be caused by a nutritional disorder such as diabetes or an inflammatory condition of the eye.

Causes of Cataracts

Cataracts are caused by the clouding of the lens of the eye, the part that focuses to allow us to see objects far and near. The clouding is caused by the failure of the body’s antioxidant system to deal with free radicals. Proteins in the lens turn yellow and brown and cloud the vision.This process can occur when there is too much sugar in the blood so they are common in people with diabetes. Low blood calcium levels may also contribute.

If you have progressive blurring of your vision, sensitivity to bright lights or see halos around lights you may have cataracts forming. Stress, poor diet, smoking, drugs, exposure to sunlight chemicals and air pollution may also be linked to the formation of cataracts. Researchers have shown that they may also be due to a lack of Vitamin C, an antioxidant and Vitamin B1 (riboflavin) in the lens of the eye.

Previously the only treatment for cataracts was surgical removal but after much research revolving around the antioxidant L-Carnosine as eye drops the form N-acetylcarnosine was found to be the best way of getting it into the eye.

Can-C treatment

A 1% solution of N-acetylcarnosine (Can-C) dropped into the eye twice a day fights free radicals and you should begin to notice some improvement in your vision in 3 months. It is recommended that you carry on the treatment for at least 6 months.

Nutritional Prevention

You will of course have better results if you have adequate nutrients and antioxidants from a very nutritious diet and avoid stress, smoking, trans fats, rancid fats, chemicals and shield your eyes from bright sunlight.

A diet that is rich in Vitamin C, B1, B6, folic acid and calcium can help. Selenium is needed for the body’s own antioxidant system to function and a deficiency can contribute to the formation of cataracts. Vitamin E and betacarotene are good antioxidants.A diet high in whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, beans & lentils, live yoghurt , nuts & seeds will supply these nutrients.

A diet high in green vegetables and especially spinach is good. Try drinking a fresh vegetable juice or Green Smoothie every day. Make sure 60% of the juice is green. Choose from spinach, kale, chard, lettuce, parsley, dandelion, watercress and broccoli. Add apple or blueberries to sweeten.

Eat more watermelon, avocados, asparagus, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli and garlic, good sources of glutathione, an antioxidant that can prevent the progression of cataracts. Last but not least get some exercise every day.

So you see if you have cataracts forming you don’t have to wait until you need surgery. Start using Can-C today. Combined with a good nutritious diet you have a natural remedy for cataracts.

Some Helpful Hints About How To Get Rid Of Acne Overnight

By Peter Skonctue

It could be your friend’s birthday party, a wedding, or any other special occasion that fueled your desperate attempt to find some quick tips on how to get rid of acne overnight. Just when all you need is clear and glowing skin, these breakouts appeared without warning, the night before the event. Thankfully, you have just arrived at the right place to find some effective ways on how to get rid of acne overnight. With simple dubs and wipes, you can pull off a clear and zit-free skin in the morning. Here’s what you should do to make it happen.

Wash your face with warm water. Use a mild cleanser to wash away the oil and dirt residue on your face.

When that is done, it’s time to exfoliate. You want to get rid of the layer of dead skin on your face to help make room for new, clean skin, but you don’t want to scour your face red. A mild facial scrub should be enough. You can even make your own by mixing together sugar, toothpaste – not gel – and a bit of water. Mix them together until you have a paste and gently apply the paste to your face. Massage it into your skin, paying special attention to your problem areas, and then rinse it off with warm water.

Apply a dab of toothpaste (not gel) on the acne area. Leave it for about 15 to 20 minutes then wash it off and pat it your face dry.

You can also use homemade facial masks to help your skin. You can use plain oatmeal to make a mask, since oatmeal is good at absorbing the oils your skin produces and can be easily washed away. Another possibility is using egg whites. But how do egg whites help you get rid of your acne? Eggs contain vitamin A which helps firm your skin, and also has its own exfoliating properties.

Another recommendation to help with single pimples is to wet a cotton ball or pad with rubbing alcohol or eye drops, and gently dab at any swollen, irritated acne.

In addition to alcohol, you may also apply some homemade acne cleansing solutions over the infected area. For instance, you may use a mixture of half teaspoon tomato juice and one teaspoon of honey. This mixture gives you a brilliant cleansing agent that is very effective in curing all kinds of acne. You may also dab apple cider vinegar or hydrogen peroxide over the problem area to help it dry faster.

Another solution that you can dab over the area is that made from natural herbs. Herbs like burdock, sarsaparilla and yellow dock brings your acne into its more manageable state. You can use tea tree oil, mixture or groundnut oil and lime juice or lemon juice and rosewater solutions on your face. Use whichever is available.

It’s also a good idea to remember that nothing makes you feel better like a good night’s sleep. Just don’t sleep on your acne, since the pillowcase can rub against the area and leave it more inflamed and red.

If your acne isn’t completely gone in the morning, try holding ice to the area for a minute or so to reduce the swelling and redness. Then simply conceal it with a mineral based cosmetic. Any concealers or powders made with oil can make your acne worse.

Many prescription medicines, soaps, and creams promise overnight relief. But for those emergencies that leave you needing to know how to get rid of acne overnight, these tips and tricks are not only more cost effective, they are also kinder to your skin than a harsh chemical. Remember that the more severe your outbreak, the longer it will take to heal.

With time, your skin will clear up. All you can do is try to help it along. When looking for answers on how to get rid of acne overnight, remember that your skin is unique and may not respond to some forms of treatment as quickly as you would like. But with these hints, hopefully you’ll see signs of improvement.

Hypnosis – What It Is And What It Is Not

By Sarah Cox

Hypnosis and its healing offshoot, hypnotherapy, have always been mired in misconceptions. Some consider them to be some sort of magic while others hesitate to even acknowledge them. Provided below are some general beliefs prevalent about hypnosis, and the real facts behind them.

Hypnosis has no link with any sort of mystical arts. It is a very easy technique, which can be explained easily with the help of psychology and other scientific methods. The genuineness of hypnosis is suspected even by people who have seen it casting its spell on subjects. They believe that the people who have been under hypnosis are mentally not strong enough to withstand the impact of the practitioner. But that is simply not the truth. Hypnosis can in fact work on people who are mentally strong and are trying hard to resist the spell.

That hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness is another misconception that has been circulating for quite some time now. A hypnotized individual is fully awake to what is going on in his surroundings. That person is just in a calm state where the attention spans are very high and the person can receive new inputs easily.

Some scientific findings have claimed that only about 5% of humanity is capable of being hypnotized, which is the third myth on this list. The researchers are somewhat true in their own way, because they attempted hypnotising their subjects by the same hypnosis technique without acknowledging individual differences in nature and disposition. People differ in their characters and personalities, and thus there have to be different hypnosis techniques to fit the temperaments of different individuals.

People also tend to connect hypnosis with meditation. But while hypnosis is a communication technique, meditation is all about a state of mind and generally has nothing to do with communication. The state of trance and the state of hypnosis are entirely different from each other too. Just like meditation, trance is a state of mind, and it is not linked with communication in any manner, whereas the very basis of the hypnosis technique is communication.

A sizeable number of people believe that it is impossible to bring about changes in one’s looks and behaviour through hypnosis training or hypnotherapy. Hypnosis obviously cannot attain something that is abnormal to the body. But it can bring about a development in physical health by altering behavioural patterns like overeating and constant smoking by raising inspiration levels in an individual.

Experiencing hypnotherapy is a fine way to lead a richer and satisfying life, and therefore one must not pay heed to the myths, and go for hypnotic sittings with an unbiased mind.

Lose Weight: Losing Weight Is Easy!

By Bufen Hill

The weight increases when we burn fewer calories than what we consume through eating and drinking. If we keep our life straight forward and only consume the amount of calories which need, we will never have extra weight.

This makes the weight lose look easy. But it is not so. For some people the greatest problem is to stop eating and yet for others the greatest problem is to utilize those calories which they have consumed through out the day.

The entire weight lose process can be made simple if we do not get involved in the complex and somewhat poor weight lose methods. Most of the times you would see advertisements telling you to lose the excessive weight by using pills or a certain kind of herbal product. These things actually do not help you to lose the weight. They just change your metabolic process and you will have changed eating habits. But again, all of us may not have the same metabolic systems and all of may not need the same changes in the metabolic processes. Also, it is the reason of the excessive weight which may differ from person to person and if you can understand that reason, it will become relatively easy for you to lose the excessive weight.

What you need to do in order to reduce your weight is simple. You will have to come back to the natural life. You will have to consume the food which is closest to its pure form. Eating more vegetables and more fresh fruits will work wonders. Also, regular workout will help you to overcome the problem. Eating less or going on a special diet is not the right approach. You can eat as much as you want and it will not create a problem for you until you are utilizing and burning those calories and you are eating the right kind of food.

You should ideally avoid the food which is rich in fats and carbohydrates. Such food will add to your weight. Make sure that you are not eating too much of sweet and fried things. They are full of fats and carbohydrates and they will make you fat.

One important thing is to mend your sleeping habits and drink as much water as you can. This will also help you to stay fit. You will not be gaining any extra weight. The more you sleep the fewer calories you burn. Also, the muscle mass develops quickly while you sleep. So just take normal sleep and sleep early. Get up early in the morning and go to some park and do some workout. This will help you to lose weight quickly and easily. You will also stay healthier this way.

Causes And Treatment Of Acne Scars

By Geraldine Spencer

Acne is an a matter of serious concern, particularly for teenage girls, as it sprouts up all of a sudden and its scars stay long after the acne is gone. Irrespective of your dislike for it, acne occurs throughout the teenage years of most people and a lot of effort is required for fighting these bad looking marks and stopping them from recurring.

When the sebum secreted by skin glands comes in contact with bacteria, it results in an infection, which is known as acne. During the healing period of this condition, a fibrous protein called collagen is formed. On the level of collagen falling low, tiny depressions are created on the skin and on its level being too high, distinct protrusions appear. Either of these factors can lead to acne scars. Adolescents are normally more susceptible to acne infection as their hormones rise suddenly at the time of puberty leading to more sebum release.

Among the common reasons of acne infection are use of beauty products that are not appropriate for the kind of skin, taking contraceptive pills, intake of medicinal drugs, and genetic reasons. A number of lifestyle aspects including diet that is not nutritious enough and mental stress can also result in acne. However, contrary to common perception, there is no scientific link between spicy or junk food and acne.

Although a variety of lotions and herbal products are sold in the market to cure acne, it is advisable to seek medical help if the problem aggravates or keeps on recurring. It is also advisable not to poke the lesion with pointed objects or to put any kind of pressure on it as it makes the infection get worse.

A number of affected people now go for many cosmetic procedures to make the scars disappear and get a glowing skin. Surgery and laser treatment are among the most successful methods of permanently getting rid of acne scars, but several other innovative cures are also available nowadays. You must visit a good dermatologist who would be able to identify your skin type and suggest a proper treatment.

It’s not too soon to be planning your next year’s detox diet. So many people have been begging and pleading with Dr Ritamarie and Tera Warner for another amazing 6 week deep tissue, raw food detox diet program that they have agreed to run one in January.

Although, according to Chinese Medicine and other authorities, Spring is the best time to detox many people feel in the mood and are most motivated to make changes in January. After the excess of the holiday season many people feel they need to detox. If you are tired, miserable, aching or overweight you are toxic!

Every year we hear the same old thing. In January when the newspapers and magazines are full of detox and weight loss diets, some outspoken doctors and dietitians are saying it’s a waste of time, effort and money because your body detoxes all the time.

Toxin overload

Well, your cells do try to detox themselves every day. You liver, the major detox organ, detoxifies many chemicals and other toxins that get into your body through the water you drink, your food, the air you breathe and products that you put on your skin.

But, researchers have discovered that a huge number of chemicals get stored in our bodies. They are in your blood and fatty tissues interfering with how your cells function. Your body gets overwhelmed with our modern world chemicals you cannot avoid these days however hard you try. You liver simply can’t cope any more with the incredible volume of toxins in our modern day world.

Industrial wastes, hormone disruptors in plastics, formaldehyde and insect deterrents in carpets, VOCs in paints and varnishes, pesticides on your food … are just some of the toxins that undermine your health.

Toxins cause many health problems

Some of the very latest published research confirms that there is a link between the level of the Bisphenol A in your urine and the risk of diabetes, heart disease and liver disease. This is a toxic substance that is used in the production of drink and food containers, food can linings and babies bottles. It leaches from the plastic into your food and water and gets into your body.

It is also known that chronic exposure to the herbicide Atrazine causes insulin resistance, and dysfunction in the mitochondria, the little powerhouses of your cells that produce energy. Insulin resistance is involved in Diabetes Type 2, weight loss problems and polycystic ovary syndrome.

Other research shows that toxic metals such as mercury, lead, or cadmium interfere with the way energy is produced in your cells which correlates with the increased risk to various chronic diseases.

Latest research proves detox works

Researchers have shown that detox, when done properly, results in real health changes. Blood tests prove that biochemistry changes and liver detox pathways improve.

If you have real health problems a short detox is not enough to turn your health around. You might get the “feel good factor” but a properly designed detox program will really dissolve and eliminates the toxins that have been lingering in your body for years!

Your program coaches

Dr Ritamarie is a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Certified Clinical Nutritionist with a Master of Science in Human Nutrition. She is probably one of the world’s leading authorities on a raw food detox and cleansing. She cured herself of health problems with a raw food detox. Tera Warner is a superb health coach and organizer of the deep tissue cleanse. She has helped support thousands of women on their journey back to health.

If you are struggling with poor health, can’t lose weight, have low energy, water retention, cravings for bad food, constipation, indigestion, poor sleep, stress, or just niggling symptoms then this powerful 6 week detox is just the thing.

You can do it!

If you are concerned that you could not do a raw food diet for that long there are 3 different diets to choose from depending on your previous experience and your current diet. Cooked food choices will be given as alternatives to raw food for the first weeks. It will be adapted for you so you can do it. Many people have already experienced the great health benefits that result from a properly managed detox and you can too.
