Why Do I Have Stomach Gas (Flatulence)

Flatulence is commonly known as farting, passing wind, or having gas. Flatulence is when you releasing gas from the digestive system through the anus. It occurs when gas collects inside the digestive system, and is a normal process.

Gas collects in two main ways. Swallowing air while you eat or drink can cause oxygen and nitrogen to collect in the digestive tract. Second, as you digest food, digestive gases such as hydrogen, methane, and carbon dioxide collect. Either method can cause flatulence.

Foods To Avoid When You Have Flatulence (Gas)

  • lentils
  • prunes
  • apples
  • foods high in fructose or sorbitol, such as fruit juices
  • beans
  • cabbage
  • broccoli
  • raisins

 

What Cause Gas

  1. Air swallowed as we breath and eat
  2. A by-product of Digestion

These Acts Also Cause Gas

  • Sucking hard Candies
  • Drinking through a Straw
  • Eating, Drinking and (get this) Talking too Fast
  • Carbonated beverages
  • Smoking
  • Chewing Gum

Three Common Causes Of Gas

1.  Candida Overgrowth: You may never have heard of this before but this yeast is likely inside your body causing havoc right now as it exists in over 90% of people. Although not always creating symptoms for everyone, this yeast can cause ongoing health problems if not addressed. One of the #1 symptoms it causes is excessive gas, the reason being that this fungus will grow inside your intestines and ferment, especially when there has been a lack of bowel movements even temporarily. It feeds on sugar as well so if you eat a diet of processed foods then you’re giving it exactly what it needs to grow further! The gas it creates is only one of many problems candida can cause such as anxiety, difficulty concentrating, allergies.

2.  Too little Stomach Acid: This will come as a shock but when your body has too little stomach acid that’s when the problems start. Your stomach will reflex to either shoot the food out in order to prevent bacteria on the food from passing through your digestive system or it will churn and try to break it down without the acid. In either case it causes an upset stomach quite often, one easy solution to it is to avoid liquids entirely with meals as this only dilutes stomach acid further.

3.   Lack of bowel movements: When you go less than 2 times per day you’re considered constipated believe it or not! What happens is the food sits in your intestines and begins to ferment and putrefy, this creates an excessive amount of gas which travels up the digestive tract back into the stomach or will apply pressure to the stomach and create tremendous bloating.

 How To Treat Gas Flatulence

 

  • Try activated charcoal. Activated charcoal has been known to reduce and treat excess gas and bloating. Unlike the charcoal you find in your grill or fireplace, activated charcoal undergoes a special treatment that makes it safe for human consumption. Once you take activated charcoal (via liquid or pill), it attaches to fluid in your gut, reducing gas and bloating and creating firmer stools.
  • Don’t fill up on air. Habits like smoking, chewing gum, and drinking through a straw may cause your stomach to fill with air, leading to gas.
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners. Sorbitol and related sugar alcohols used in many sugar-free versions of foods can also aggravate gas. “Sorbitol is the first ingredient in every brand of sugar-free gum I’ve found at local grocery stores,” says Bickston. “One to two sticks is akin to eating a prune.” However, the sugar substitutes that are found at a typical coffee stand or in popular soft drinks are not the kind that cause gas. The various packet sweeteners – yellow (sucralose), pink (saccharine), and blue (aspartame) – are not associated with gas or laxative effects.
  • Drink before meals. If you drink liquids with your meals, you lose stomach acids and can’t break down food as well, Novey says. Try drinking about 30 minutes before a meal to help your stomach digest better.
  • Eat and drink slowly. When you eat or drink fast, you can swallow a lot of air, which can cause gas, says Bickston. The simple solution? Slow down when you eat. If you have dentures, check with your dentist to be sure they fit properly so you’re not gasping air while eating.
  • Take over-the-counter digestive aids.   An over-the-counter digestive aid, Beano, contains an enzyme that can allow the body to digest the sugar in beans and many vegetables. Add five drops of the liquid form or swallow one Beano tablet per half-cup serving of food before eating. Heating degrades the enzyme in Beano, so adding it to foods while cooking reduces its effectiveness. Beano will not help if excessive gas is caused by fiber or lactose.

What You Should Know About Parkinson’s Disease

What You Should Know About Parkinson Disease

What You Should Know About Parkinson Disease

Parkinson disease is a brain disorder that affects nearly 1.5 million Americans and 60,000 new cases are diagnosed annually. There is no known cure but with research and medication there is hope. Parkinson’s isn’t easy to diagnose either. There is no blood test or brain scan that definitively points to the condition – doctors diagnose based on the process of elimination and patient symptoms. Other signs of the disease include: a shuffling walk, small cramped handwriting, muffled speech, depression and stiff facial expressions. There are doctors, neurologists, who specialize in the treatment of neurological disorders and of these even more specialized practitioners who specifically treat Parkinson disease.

What Causes Parkinson

Parkinson’s disease is caused by the death of neurons in a part of the brain known as the substantia nigra. This area of the brain is part of a system of neurons known as the basal ganglia. This system is very important in the control of movement. The neurons in the substantia nigra secrete dopamine. The loss of dopamine’s effect on the basal ganglia leads to the signs and symptoms of Parkinsonism.

Who Gets Parkinson

About 1 million people in the United States have Parkinson’s, and both men and women can get it. Symptoms usually appear when someone is older than 50 and it becomes more common as people get older.

Many people wonder if you’re more likely to get Parkinson’s disease if you have a relative who has it. Although the role that heredity plays isn’t completely understood, we do know that if a close relative like a parent, brother, or sister has Parkinson’s, there is a greater chance of developing the disease. But Parkinson’s disease is not contagious. You can’t get it by simply being around someone who has it.

Medication For Parkinson

Medications may help you manage problems with walking, movement and tremor. These medications increase or substitute for dopamine, a specific signaling chemical (neurotransmitter) in your brain.

People with Parkinson’s disease have low brain dopamine concentrations. However, dopamine can’t be given directly, as it can’t enter your brain.

You may have significant improvement of your symptoms after beginning Parkinson’s disease treatment. Over time, however, the benefits of drugs frequently diminish or become less consistent, although symptoms usually can continue to be fairly well-controlled.

Medications

  • Anticholinergics. These medications were used for many years to help control the tremor associated with Parkinson’s disease. Several anticholinergic medications are available, including benztropine (Cogentin) or trihexyphenidyl.However, their modest benefits are often offset by side effects such as impaired memory, confusion, hallucinations, constipation, dry mouth and impaired urination.
  • Amantadine. Doctors may prescribe amantadine alone to provide short-term relief of symptoms of mild, early-stage Parkinson’s disease. It may also be given with carbidopa-levodopa therapy during the later stages of Parkinson’s disease to control involuntary movements (dyskinesias) induced by carbidopa-levodopa.Side effects may include a purple mottling of the skin, ankle swelling or hallucinations.
  • Carbidopa-levodopa. Levodopa, the most effective Parkinson’s disease medication, is a natural chemical that passes into your brain and is converted to dopamine.Levodopa is combined with carbidopa (Rytary, Sinemet), which protects levodopa from premature conversion to dopamine outside your brain, which prevents or lessens side effects such as nausea.Side effects may include nausea or lightheadedness (orthostatic hypotension).After years, as your disease progresses, the benefit from levodopa may become less stable, with a tendency to wax and wane (“wearing off”).

    Also, you may experience involuntary movements (dyskinesia) after taking higher doses of levodopa. Your doctor may lessen your dose or adjust the times of your doses to control these effects.

  • Carbidopa-levodopa infusion. The U.S. Food and Drug administration approved a drug called Duopa in 2015. This medication is made up of carbidopa and levodopa. However, it’s administered through a feeding tube that delivers the medication in a gel form directly to the small intestine.Duopa is for patients with more advanced Parkinson’s who still respond to carbidopa-levodopa, but who have a lot of fluctuations in their response. Because Duopa is continually infused, blood levels of the two drugs remain constant.Placement of the tube requires a small surgical procedure. Risks associated with having the tube include the tube falling out or infections at the infusion site.
  • Dopamine agonists. Unlike levodopa, dopamine agonists don’t change into dopamine. Instead, they mimic dopamine effects in your brain.They aren’t as effective as levodopa in treating your symptoms. However, they last longer and may be used with levodopa to smooth the sometimes off-and-on effect of levodopa.Dopamine agonists include pramipexole (Mirapex), ropinirole (Requip) and rotigotine (given as a patch, Neupro). A short-acting injectable dopamine agonist, apomorphine (Apokyn), is used for quick relief.Some of the side effects of dopamine agonists are similar to the side effects of carbidopa-levodopa, but also include hallucinations, sleepiness and compulsive behaviors such as hypersexuality, gambling and eating. If you’re taking these medications and you behave in a way that’s out of character for you, talk to your doctor.
  • MAO-B inhibitors. These medications include selegiline (Eldepryl, Zelapar) and rasagiline (Azilect). They help prevent the breakdown of brain dopamine by inhibiting the brain enzyme monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B). This enzyme metabolizes brain dopamine. Side effects may include nausea or insomnia.When added to carbidopa-levodopa, these medications increase the risk of hallucinations.These medications are not often used in combination with most antidepressants or certain narcotics due to potentially serious but rare reactions. Check with your doctor before taking any additional medications with a MAO-B inhibitor.
  • Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitors. Entacapone (Comtan) is the primary medication from this class. This medication mildly prolongs the effect of levodopa therapy by blocking an enzyme that breaks down dopamine.Side effects, including an increased risk of involuntary movements (dyskinesias), mainly result from an enhanced levodopa effect. Other side effects include diarrhea or other enhanced levodopa side effects.Tolcapone (Tasmar) is another COMT inhibitor that is rarely prescribed due to a risk of serious liver damage and liver failure.

Treatment For Parkinson

Parkinson’s disease can’t be cured, but medications can help control your symptoms, often dramatically. In some later cases, surgery may be advised.

Your doctor may also recommend lifestyle changes, especially ongoing aerobic exercise. In some cases, physical therapy that focuses on balance and stretching also is important. A speech-language pathologist may help improve your speech problems.

The Health Benefits Of Eating Flax

The Benefits Of Flaxseeds

The Benefits Of Flaxseeds

Flax is a seed that I eat regularly. It is very powerful and nutritional. You can really boost your health with Flax Seeds.

It even helps in the fight against cancer and diabetes, plus a number of other health benefits. People use it to help with high cholesterol problems and find that it has helped me reduce my cholesterol score, along with other dietary changes.

Flax is the seed of a blue flowering plant native to the region extending from the eastern Mediterranean to India. Flax has been grown for thousands of years. The first known growers were in the middle-east in around 7000 BC. Flax was also cultivated throughout ancient Ethiopia. Some of these ancient cultures also used it for food and medicines. There was also a growing market for flax linen cloth for clothing and sails for ships.

Nutrients In Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. They are a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B1 and and copper. They are also a good source of the minerals magnesium, phosphorus and selenium.

Different Ways To Use Flax

1. Add it to your scrambled eggs in the morning.
2. Sprinkle it on your vegetables.
3. Top your salad with it or add it to your favorite dressing.

What You Need To Know About Sickle Cell Anemia

 Treatment For Sickle Cell Anemia

Treatment For Sickle Cell Anemia

What is Sickle Cell Anemia?  Sickle cell is belongs to the family of thalassemia, it is very common inherited blood disorder disease, it occurs almost exclusively among black Americans and black Africans. Sickle cell disease (STD) is a condition that affects your blood. It’s sometimes called sickle cell anemia. STD can be diagnose by a simple blood test called CBC, in which complete blood counts, with red blood cells, and protein with iron and hemoglobin measured. While A hemoglobin electrophoresis test measuring the different types of hemoglobin in the bloodstream.

Sickle Cell Anemia is a Greek word which means without blood. As the meaning of anemia showing the actual situation. Anemia is a condition in which your blood has abnormally low number of red blood cells circulate in the body.

Sickle Cell Anemia is not a disease, in fact it is a condition that results from below-normal levels of hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Hemoglobin is the iron-containing pigment of the red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. Anemia also can occur if your red blood cells don’t contain enough hemoglobin.

Symptoms For Sickle Cell Anemia

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Infections. These are due to the spleen being damaged. Your spleen helps to fight infections.
  • The most common symptom is sudden pain. This is due to the abnormal red cells getting caught in the blood vessels in the limbs and organs.
  • Fatigue. This is due to the anemia.
  • Chest pain. This is caused by the cells getting trapped in the lungs, or an infection.

Cure For Sickle Cell Anemia

As we know that there is no proper cure for this deadly disease while there may be some care instead of cure. STD patient need oxygen, plenty of fluids and iron containing foods to reduce the severity of the pain. In some cases they need blood transfusion if the condition is more serious.A drug called hydroxyurea(brand name Hydrea) may prevent regular attacks of sickle cell pain and give more gap between severe pain attacks. Medical experts are still trying hard to get proper treatment for STD.

Test For Sickle Cell Anemia

  • A red cell analysis(CBC or ABC), including studying the cells under a microscope, will show the shape of the cells.
  • The “Sickle Cell Test” determines if abnormal hgb is present in the blood. A deoxygenating agent is added to the blood. A technologist examines the sample under the microscope to look for sickled cells. This shows if the patient has either the trait or the disease.
  • Hemoglobin electrophoresis determines the type of hgb by passing an electric charge through a solution of the patient’s blood. Different hgb’s travel different distances.

Treatment For Sickle Cell Anemia

  • Pain management
  • IV fluids. It’s important for the patient to drink lots of fluids to help prevent a sickle cell crisis.
  • Antibiotics for infection
  • Vaccination against pneumonia
  • Blood transfusion
  • Medication to prevent a painful crisis. There are possible serious side effects to the medication, however.
  • Possible bone marrow transplant

Self Treatment For Sickle Cell Anemia

Step 1 – Proper hydration: It is estimated that 75% of Americans have mild, chronic dehydration. This will affect blood flow so getting the proper amount of water on a daily basis is critically important. It must be pure water. Pop, coffee, diet soda, alcohol, or other doctored beverages to not count. Your body must replace 2-3 quarts of water everyday. As a rule of thumb, for every 15 lbs of weight, you need 8 ounces (1 cup) of water.

Step 2 – Stay warm: Cold reduces blood flow because capillaries constrict. If you live in a cold environment, then take extra precaution to keep your extremities, especially fingers and toes, properly protected.

Step 3 – Avoid high altitudes: Geographic locations with high elevations should be avoided due to the reduce level of oxygen in the atmosphere.

Step 4 – Exercise: Intense exercise should be avoided but mild to moderate aerobic exercise can be a benefit. Exercise improves blood flow and can produce collateral capillary beds that can aid in providing alternative pathways for blood flow when an arterial pathway becomes blocked. Before starting an exercise program, you should always consult your physician.

Step 5 – L-arginine supplementation: The body utilizes L-arginine to create nitric oxide which is necessary for the proper function of the cardiovascular system especially in the control of the elasticity of the arterial walls. Now, before you go out and start buying L-arginine supplements you need to be aware of the dark side of this amino acid. L-arginine ingested in its pure form tastes terrible and will simply go into the stomach, move into the intestinal tract and then into the gut, negating most of its benefits. There is only one way for L-arginine supplement to be safe and effective and that is in a powder form with a specific glycoside rider. By itself, L-arginine can have some serious side effects like: increasing free-radical brain damage, activation of the herpes simplex virus and reduced sperm motility. This is why L-arginine is also called the “double-edged sword.” Because L-arginine is a blind amino acid it must be attached to a rider to properly direct it to the area of the body where it will have an impact. This rider must use a low-glycemic method.

Step 6 – Organic germanium: Organic germanium was first synthesized 20 years ago. It is a trace mineral that helps support the immune system. Its many beneficial attributes include oxygen enrichment, free-radical scavenging, and heavy-metal detoxification. Organic germanium is also known to be a rejuvenator and aid in increasing stamina, endurance, energy, and heart muscle tone. Toxicological studies have documented its rapid absorption and elimination from the body. But, as a precaution, you should discuss this with both your physician and pharmacist especially if you are on any type of medication.

Step 7 – Rest: It is important to get adequate rest since stress can have a negative effect on your overall health and wellness as well as lower your immune system.

Step 8 – Support your immune system: There is so much that could be said in this area. Increasing your consumption of antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables would be an important first step. Daily consumption of at least 500 mg of vitamin C would help both the immune system and liver function.

Step 9 – Support your liver: Again, there is much that could be said in this area. Adequate amounts of green leafy vegetables with proper water intake are two good first steps to help the liver. Taking 500 mg of vitamin C will help increase the rate of synthesis of glutathione which is a major component in liver detoxification.

Step 10 – Avoid people with colds and flu: Try not to place yourself in situations that allow for infections to occur. This may require you to use a mask at times if your work or school environment is compromised with illness issues.

Step 11 – Immunizations: Stay up-to-date with the proper immunizations needed. Work with your health care provider to set up a schedule so that all the proper steps are taken to stay on top of this area.

Step 12 – Folic acid supplementation: Folic acid is a necessary component for the production of red blood cells. The recommended daily amount for adults is 400 micrograms and 600 micrograms in pregnancy. If you are thinking about taking a larger amount, then you should discuss this with both your physician and pharmacist.

Step 13 – Support groups: Because of the emotional challenges of this disease it always helps to find a support group to share frustrations, challenges, hopes, and successes.

Step 14 – Family planning: Due to the genetic nature of sickle cell disease, it is always helpful to discuss options with a family practitioner who has experience in genetic counseling.

The Health Benefits Of Black Pepper

Black Pepper is one of my favorite herbs. I eat it with a lot of my food.
Black pepper has been consumed for thousands of years, but it is only in the last decade that clinical studies have been done to discover its constituents and what health benefits they can give us. Did you know that small amounts of black pepper are added to food to maintain prostate health.

Black pepper has always been known as a carminative, which means that it helps get rid of flatulence and intestinal gas. It is also a diuretic, and diaphoretic. The former term means that it helps remove excess water from the body and the latter means that it promotes sweating, which is useful if you have a fever. It can also boost the immune system as it has powerful antioxidant effects. Black pepper also provides us with minerals that our bodies need, such as manganese, copper, iron, chromium and calcium. It is rich in vitamin K which is found in green vegetables such as kale, broccoli and brussel sprouts.

Health Benefits Of Black Pepper

1. Improves skin: Did you know that crushed pepper is one of the best exfoliators nature has provided us? Don’t use it directly though; add a bit of honey, curd, or fresh cream to it. It also enables blood circulation, and provides the skin with more oxygen. Adding it to your food also takes care of unwarranted skin wrinkles. Black pepper is known to help in the cure of Vitiligo, a condition where the skin loses pigmentation, and creates white patches.

2. Addresses depression: It’s said that the piperine in black pepper helps to deal with depression. It stimulates the brain, and helps it to function properly by making it more active.

3. To prevent cancer: The piperine in black pepper can be credited with the prevention of cancer, and becomes twice as potent when combined with turmeric. The spice also has Vitamin C, Vitamin A, flavonoids, carotenes and other anti-oxidants that help remove harmful free radicals and protect the body from cancers and diseases. The best way to eat pepper to harness maximum benefits is to eat freshly ground pepper, and not cook it along with food.

4. Stimulates digestion: Again, the piperine in black pepper eases digestion and stimulates the stomach, which then secretes more hydrochloric acid that helps to digest proteins in food. So a bit of pepper in food will actually help you to digest it faster.

5. Relieves cold and cough: Black pepper is antibacterial in nature, and therefore helps to cure cold and cough. A teaspoon of honey with freshly crushed pepper does the trick. It also helps to alleviate chest congestion, often caused due to pollution, flu, or a viral infection. You can add it to hot water and eucalyptus oil and take steam. And given that black pepper is rich in Vitamin C, it also works as a good antibiotic.

6. Enables weight loss: You might not want to believe this, but black pepper is brilliant when it comes to extracting nutrients from food. And it’s outermost layer contains phytonutrients, which helps to break down fat cells, and also increases metabolism. If you eat fresh pepper, and begin to perspire, that’s the pepper helping your body to get rid of excess water and toxins. But you need to control consumption – a pinch with your food (one meal) is enough.

Health Benefits Of Garlic

Health Benefits Of Garlic

What is Garlic? Garlic is a superfood. It is a species in the onion genus, Allium. It is used in fresh or dries form as a source of characteristic sulphur containing substances (e.g.allicin, which is responsible for the odor of garlic) that have potentially beneficial effects within the body. Some of these compounds are present in garlic in a latent form, which are activated when garlic cloves are crushed or digested.

Garlic has been used for centuries for its amazing healing potential, and also as a tasty food additive. Once upon a time herbalist and medicine men used garlic for everything, it was actually considered a wonder herb. Now days, we have a group of specific conditions that we feel garlic has the highest impact on, such as lowering cholesterol and decreasing your chances of heart disease.

Garlic is beneficial to good health in one way or another. Get past the odor, and a world of good can be had from a daily regimen of fresh garlic or garlic supplements. Although not all of garlic’s health benefits have been proven in the laboratory, centuries of garlic consumption – and its pronounced use in natural medicine – point to an herb with a variety of healing properties and significant nutritive value.

Garlic contains healthy amino acids and high levels of the constituent alliin, an amino acid derivative said to be responsible for the herb’s health benefits. Garlic contains trace minerals copper, zinc, germanium, selenium, iron and magnesium, vitamins A and C and several beneficial sulfuric compounds known to bind to heavy metals and toxins in the liver and transport them for elimination.

 Some Nutrients In Garlic
  • Selenium: 6% of the RDA.
  • Fiber: 0.6 gram
  • Manganese: 23% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B6: 17% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin C: 15% of the RDA.
  • Decent amounts of calcium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin B1

Type Of Garlic Supplements

o Garlic oil capsules

o Allicin-stabilized pills

o Encapsulated powdered garlic

o Aged garlic extract

o Odorless garlic pills

Health Benefits Of Garlic

Cold Buster: There still is no cure for the common cold, but you can reduce your chances of catching one as well as the number of days you remain ill. For this, raw is best, though it’s a little hard to eat. Supplements and that found in food will also help.

Lowering Blood Pressure: There is a solid link between the use of this supplement and the reduction of blood pressure, both diastolic and systolic. Taking it along with your regular medication could help prevent heart attacks and stroke

Antibiotic: While it is not as strong as penicillin, studies indicate that there is an antibiotic property in garlic. It is one of the secret ingredients of Grandma’s Chicken Soup, the one always served when you don’t feel well. Garlic was used on soldiers in several wars. It was applied as a poultice to wounds to prevent infection.

Cancer Battle: Increased garlic consumption may help prevent several types of cancer. A study done in Iowa on 41,000 middle aged women showed that increased garlic plus fruits and vegetables reduced the chances of colon cancer by 35%. It may help battle other types of cancer as well.

Cholesterol: Several studies suggest that taking supplements of this herb could reduce cholesterol. At least one study indicates that it does not, so I wouldn’t depend totally on it as a factor in reducing it. More studies are being done which should clear this matter up.

Garlic Sex Benefits

Garlic is purported to help maintain healthy testosterone levels in men and boost the libido of both men and women.

Garlic Side Effects

Garlic is a natural blood thinner and inhibits clotting, so those with clotting disorders should consult a physician before beginning a regimen of garlic supplements or cloves. Garlic can irritate the digestive system, cause cramping, bloating, diarrhea and gas, and should be avoided by those allergic to sulfur.
