8 Natural Tips to Help Prevent a Cold





There are no known cures for colds and flu, so cold and flu prevention should be your goal. A proactive approach to warding off colds and flu is apt to make your whole life healthier. The most effective way for preventing the flu is to get the flu shot. It works better than anything else. But there are other strategies you can employ as well. Here are 8 tips you can use to help prevent colds and the flu naturally:

#1 Wash Your Hands

Recommended Related to Cold & Flu


A hacking cough, a throbbing head, a sore throat, and a nose so stuffed it feels as if you'll never breathe free and clear again. You've got a cold -- or maybe even the flu -- and all you want to do is crawl in bed and sleep. Until you get there. That's when you realize your symptoms are turning any chance for a solid night's rest into the impossible dream. "It's true that many cold and flu symptoms seem to get worse at night, and they can interfere with sleep just at the critical time when...


Most cold and flu viruses are spread by direct contact. Someone who has the flu sneezes onto his or her hand and then touches the telephone, the keyboard, a kitchen glass. The germs can live for hours only to be picked up by the next person who touches the same object. So wash your hands often. If you can't get to a sink, rub an alcohol-based hand sanitizer onto your hands.

#2 Don't Cover Your Sneezes and Coughs With Your Hands

Because germs and viruses cling to your bare hands, muffling coughs and sneezes with your hands often results in passing along your germs to others. When you feel a sneeze or cough coming, use a tissue, then throw it away immediately. If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into the inside of your elbow.

#3 Don't Touch Your Face


Cold and flu viruses enter your body through the eyes, nose, or mouth. Touching their faces is the major way children catch colds and a key way they pass colds on to their parents.

#4 Do Aerobic Exercise Regularly

Aerobic exercise speeds up the heart to pump larger quantities of blood; makes you breathe faster to help transfer oxygen from your lungs to your blood; and makes you sweat once your body heats up. These exercises help increase the body's natural virus-killing cells.

#5 Eat Foods Containing Phytochemicals

"Phyto" means plants, and the natural chemicals in plants give the vitamins in food a supercharged boost. So put away the vitamin pill, and eat dark green, red, and yellow vegetables and fruits.

#6 Don't Smoke

Statistics show that heavy smokers get more severe colds and more frequent ones.

Even being around smoke profoundly zaps the immune system. Smoke dries out your nasal passages and paralyzes cilia. These are the delicate hairs that line the mucous membranes in your nose and lungs, and with their wavy movements, sweep cold and flu viruses out of the nasal passages. Experts contend that one cigarette can paralyze cilia for as long as 30 to 40 minutes.

#7 Cut Alcohol Consumption

Heavy alcohol use suppresses the immune system in a variety of ways. Heavier drinkers are more prone to initial infections as well as secondary complications. Alcohol also dehydrates the body -- it actually causes more fluid loss from your system than it puts in.

#8 Relax

If you can teach yourself to relax, you may be able to rev up your immune system. There's evidence that when you put your relaxation skills into action, your interleukins -- leaders in the immune system response against cold and flu viruses -- increase in the bloodstream. Train yourself to picture an image you find pleasant or calming. Do this 30 minutes a day for several months. Keep in mind, relaxation is a learnable skill, but it is not doing nothing. People who try to relax, but are in fact bored, show no changes in blood chemicals.

Lack Of Iron Linked To Stroke


THURSDAY, Feb. 20, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Low iron levels can raise your risk of stroke by making your blood more sticky, a new study indicates.

Investigators looked at data from nearly 500 people with a ra...re hereditary disease that causes them to have enlarged blood vessels in the lungs. Typically, blood vessels in the lungs don't allow clots to enter the arteries. But in these patients, clots can escape the lungs, travel to the brain and cause a stroke.

Those who had an iron deficiency had stickier platelets -- which are small blood cells that trigger clotting when they stick together -- and were more likely to suffer a stroke, according to the researchers at Imperial College London in the U.K.

Even those with moderately low iron levels were about twice as likely to suffer a stroke as those with iron levels in the middle of the normal range, according to the study published Feb. 19 in the journal PLoS One.

The researchers noted that many people have other types of conditions that let blood clots bypass the lung's filtering system, and they added that their findings could eventually help with stroke prevention.

Iron deficiency affects about 2 billion people worldwide, and recent research has shown that it may be a risk factor for stroke, but how iron deficiency could boost stroke risk was unknown.

"Since platelets in the blood stick together more if you are short of iron, we think this may explain why being short of iron can lead to strokes, though much more research will be needed to prove this link," Dr. Claire Shovlin, from the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London, said in a college news release.

"The next step is to test whether we can reduce high-risk patients' chances of having a stroke by treating their iron deficiency. We will be able to look at whether their platelets become less sticky," Shovlin said.

"There are many additional steps from a clot blocking a blood vessel to the final stroke developing, so it is still unclear just how important sticky platelets are to the overall process," she added. "We would certainly encourage more studies to investigate this link."

Epilepsy


What is epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain. Epilepsy can affect anyone regardless of ethnicity and age. Children make up 30% of all new epileptic diagnoses each year, but people over age 65 also are commonly diagnosed. But what happens during an epileptic attack?

During an epileptic attack, the normal transmission of electrical signals sent out from nerve cells (neurons) is disrupted. Disruptions may occur in one part of the brain, or in the entire brain. Disruption of nerve cell transmission in only one part of the brain is called a partial, or focal, seizure. A seizure that occurs in the entire brain is called a generalized seizure.

Partial or focal seizures include:

● Complex partial seizures

● Simple partial seizures

Generalized seizures include:

● Absence seizures (petit mal)

● Atonic seizures

● Myoclonic seizures.

● Tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal)

Epilepsy Symptoms

Physical changes may occur during a seizure, or a disruption of neuron transmission in the brain. Some physical symptoms of a seizure include convulsions (an involuntary repetitive contraction of a muscle that lasts for a very short time and results in visible shaking of the body), changes in behaviour, emotions, or sensations. Different seizure occurrences can result in different symptoms, because many symptoms accompany each category of seizure.

Earlier, we discussed different types epileptic seizures. These different types of seizures result in different physical changes in the brain. Let's take a look at these different types of seizures to understand common symptoms.

Partial or focal seizures

1. Complex partial seizures exhibit the following symptoms:


    • Different facial expressions of emotions that are not triggered by a present or recent event
    • Difference in awareness
    • Moving the arms or rubbing hands without intending to
    • Swallowing without intending to
    • Staring
    • Wandering

2. Simple partial seizures exhibit the following symptoms:

    • Altered emotions
    • Changes in the way things look, smell, feel, taste or sound
    • Dreamy state
    • Involuntary muscle contraction that might imitate normal muscle movement
    • Unprovoked emotion

Generalized seizures
Each type of generalized seizure is accompanied by a group of symptoms. We'll discuss about each type of generalized seizure, in turn.

1. Absence seizures (petit mal): Children are mostly affected by this type of generalized epilepsy, and often stare while making movements different than what they would normally do. This can include changing the positions of their hands, smacking their lips, and other types of behaviour. Awareness is affected.

2. Atonic seizures: A atonic seizure results in a loss of muscle control, causing the person to fall to the ground which may result in injuring his/her body. No loss of consciousness occurs, bit an atonic seizure generally occurs without notice.

3. Myoclonic seizures: These seizures are characterized a sudden, incontrollable jerking of limbs, the mouth, and other parts of the body. They happen only for a short period of time, but many cause a person to drop something, or to have their arms or legs to move up or down suddenly.

4. Tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal): This type of seizure often comes to mind when people think of seizures. People experiencing grand mal seizures will exhibit sudden, violent movement of the body and limbs, unconsciousness, headaches after the seizure, and loss of bladder control (involuntary urination) and bowel control (involuntary defecation) during or after the seizure.

Epilepsy treatment
There a variety of techniques that can be used to control epileptic seizures, but it is important to remember that there is no cure for epilepsy. However, effective treatment can decrease seizure frequency and strength, or may leave you free of seizures. As with any medical decision, your doctor's advice, medical history, and tests are important to determine the best course of treatment.

Avoid triggers
It is very important that epileptic triggers be avoided. Aside from lack of sleep, stress and alcohol consumption, unexpected or repetitive or uncomfortable stimuli might trigger seizures. Repetitive flashing light (stroboscope) or inadequate screen frequency, sudden auditive stimulus (siren, or sudden yelling after silence), inadequate environmental temperature for longer period might trigger seizures are all environmental factors that should be avoided.
