Ask a Pharmacist. Why see a naturopath?

There are many reasons to work with a naturopath. The care provided by this holistic take on health is unparalleled, as naturopathic remedies treat all the parts of a person. Treatments such as homeopathy, nutrition counselling and acupuncture are all associated with naturopathy, and may be great avenues to consider if you’re suffering from chronic illness.

Acupuncture: Many believers in naturopathic care turn to acupuncture in their quest for relief. The practise originated thousands of years ago in China, and involves the insertion of tiny needles into the patient’s body. In theory, placing the needles on various spots on the human body can affect the flow of qi, or vital energy. There is ample evidence to support the effectiveness of acupuncture, as well: The World Health Organization (WHO) backs acupuncture for the treatment of many different conditions, including bone, joint and back pain, nausea, stroke, hypertension and depression. Acupuncture treatments may be further supported by the use of supplements and lifestyle changes.

Chiropractic: Many people swear by chiropractic care. Chiropractors focus on the skeletal and nervous systems, working to proper alignment. When the skeletal and nervous systems aren’t properly aligned, people can suffer from neck, back and joint pain, as well as a host of other issues. We offer many different joint support and anti-inflammatory supplements that can be used in conjunction with chiropractic care.

Homeopathy: Homeopathy is not synonymous with naturopathy – it is a very specific branch of care that focuses on the premise that the cures for various ills lie in treating those maladies with similar ingredients. For example, caffeine is often prescribed for the treatment of insomnia. Conventional medicine largely does not support homeopathy, though its focus on holistic care may hold some lessons for those seeking relief from chronic illness.

Herbalism: As its name suggests, herbalism refers to the practise of using herbs (often crushed) as a means to support health. Herbs are a wonderfully diverse group of plants, and have been used to treat everything from anxiety, depression and mood disorders to chronic pain. We offer a variety of herb-derived supplements to help support your health.

What’s the next step?

Working with a pharmacist may also be an important step toward better health. Even in the realm of naturopathic products, there are many supplements that are only available with a prescription. Our practitioner-only supplements come from trusted brands such as Biocare, Bioceuticals, Mediherb, Metagenics, Orthoplex and PRL.

Your naturopath may prescribe high-potency supplements and dietary products to help treat what ails you. If that’s the case, you can purchase those care products through NetPharmacy by login/sign-up to our website here and complete the health consultation form.

Our consultant will review your information and inform you when access is granted with login credentials. (Please note: This process may take several hours.)

It’s also important to note that NetPharmacy offers free shipping on all orders over $100 within New Zealand. Take advantage of our great selection, low prices and knowledgeable staff as you navigate our way toward better health.

Antihistamine – Net Pharmacy

Antihistamines are a class of pharmaceutical drugs designed to stop the action or block the production of histamine. A histamine antagonist, the drug stops the formation of histamine from histidine upon being catalyzed by histidine carboxylase. This type of allergy treatment is often available in liquid, capsule, tablet or other chewable forms which may be taken orally.

ANTIHISTAMINE BENEFITS

Antihistamines are often used to treat allergies, including but not limited to seasonal allergies (hay fever), allergic rhinitis, food allergies (nuts, seafood), and indoor or outdoor allergies. These allergies are often the result of protein intolerance or histamine intolerance. Histamine promotes increased permeability in blood vessels, hence more fluids flow into tissues, causing runny nose and watery eyes. By inhibiting histamine binding to receptors, natural antihistamine provides allergy relief for the following symptoms: runny nose, itchy nose, itchy eyes, watery eyes, nasal congestion, sneezes, and coughs. Hives, skin rashes and insect bites may also be treated using antihistamines.

ANTIHISTAMINE SIDE EFFECTS

Anti histamine may induce drowsiness, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. It is recommended that those taking antihistamines that

Anti-inflammatory – Net Pharmacy

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs are analgesics, meaning they are used to provide relief from pain. NSAIDs also have anti-inflammatory properties, and as such, they can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joints, muscles, and tendons.

NSAIDs work by halting the production of the lipid compounds prostaglandins in the body. Prostaglandins are similar to the hormones, but they are responsible for regulating inflammation in the body, and inducing labor, among others. Most importantly, prostaglandins are involved in the process of pain transmission. By lessening the production of prostaglandins, NSAIDs lessen the feeling of inflammation and pain.

These drugs are often used to alleviate painful conditions like arthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis, which cause swelling around the muscles and bones, particularly in the shoulder, elbow, knee, hip, wrist, and ankle. NSAIDs are used also for common injuries in sports caused by direct and indirect trauma to the body, like sprains and strains. Aside from these, NSAIDs are used for menstrual cramps and gout attacks. Menstrual cramps, or dysmenorrhoea, are the painful cramps felt in the lower abdomen or back by women before or during their menstrual period. Menstrual cramps may cause an upset stomach and loose stools. A gout attack or a gout flare-up, on the other hand, happens to people with high levels of uric acid in the body, when this uric acid builds up around a joint. A gout attack may begin with a burning, itching, or tingling feeling in a joint that feels stiff or sore.

Pain Relief – Net Pharmacy

Feeling pain because of your arthritis? Do you have swollen, inflamed joints? Tired of unsightly and throbbing cracked heels?

Pain relief is part of pain management, a branch of medicine also called algiatry. This branch of medicine is all about easing physical pain and mental trauma. In addition, pain relief is also about promoting healing and supporting the patient throughout the whole of the recuperation process. Pain management practitioners can be pharmacists, psychologists, physiotherapists, and therapists.


WHAT IS PAIN RELIEF?

Pain relief is part of pain management, a branch of medicine also called algiatry. This branch of medicine is all about easing physical pain and mental trauma. In addition, pain relief is also about promoting healing and supporting the patient throughout the whole of the recuperation process. Pain management practitioners can be pharmacists, psychologists, physiotherapists, and therapists.

There are two approaches to pain relief: the first approach is the physical approach. The physical approach is about physical medicine and rehabilitation, and it utilizes techniques like acupuncture, therapeutic exercises, electrotherapy, and light therapy. The second approach is the psychological approach. The psychological approach, on the other hand, utilizes techniques like cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnosis, and meditation.

The World Health Organization has organized a pain ladder that ranks pain type along with initial drug treatment. The lowest pain type is that of a headache, and the highest is that of fibromyalgia. A less specific way of ranking pain is by categorizing them into: (1) mild pain, (2) mild to moderate pain, and (3) moderate to severe pain.

WHAT ARE THE DRUGS USED FOR RELIEVING PAIN?

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs, which include acetaminophens and paracetamols, are administered for mild pain types like headaches, migraines, and menstrual cramps. Antidepressants and antiepilectic drugs are used for managing chronic pain. Another drug used for pain management are opioids. All of these are analgesics, which are drugs that are more commonly known as painkillers. Analgesics can come in different forms like tablets and capsules which can be ingested, and gels and ointments which can be topically applied to the skin. Analgesics can also be lotions or sprays.

Athlete’s Foot – Net Pharmacy

Athlete’s foot, also called ringworm of the foot, is an infection that can happen to anyone despite its name. Its technical and medical name is tinea pedis, which means dermatophytosis of the feet, and it is similar to other diseases such as ringworm and jock itch. It is caused by a parasitic fungus that is easily transmitted in areas like swimming pools and locker rooms, making it contagious. The parts of the body that are commonly contaminated with these fungi are the feet and the skin between the toes. However, toe nails, hands, and fingers can also become infected.

ATHLETE’S FOOT INFORMATION

Athlete’s foot causes the skin of the feet, the skin between the toes, and any other afflicted areas, to become itchy and cracked, because of fissuring of the skin. The skin may also turn reddish in color when dry, or white and flaky when wet. Athlete’s foot will cause the area to become painful and the infection will cause the area to produce an unpleasant smell. Furthermore, athlete’s foot will cause the scratching reflex. Severe, untreated athlete’s foot can even lead to blisters.

Athlete’s foot is easy to treat. The easiest solution is to purchase over-the counter medicines such as creams and lotions and apply these to the afflicted area over a given period of time. One home remedy people can try is soaking the affected area in water mixed with a small amount of bleach, which will kill the fungus. However, the real problem with athlete’s foot lies in preventing re-infection. To avoid getting infected or re-infected, one should avoid going barefoot, if possible. One should also avoid getting the feet sweaty and trapped in closed sneakers or shoes.

Jock Itch – Net Pharmacy

Jock’s itch, which is caused by the fungus ringworm, is an infection that afflicts the outer layers of the skin and nails. It is most common in male athletes, as the name suggests, but can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, and occupation. Its technical and medical name is tinea cruris and it is very similar in nature to other diseases like athlete’s foot. The difference is that although athlete’s foot most commonly affects the feet and the toes, jock’s itch affects the more private areas of the groin, buttocks, and inner thighs. Unfortunately, it is possible to be afflicted with athlete’s foot and jock’s itch at the same time, because they are caused by the same condition: the proliferation of fungus in warm and moist areas.

Jock’s itch causes the afflicted area, whether it be the groin or the buttocks, to become itchy and to develop rashes. Rashes caused by jock’s itch have distinct appearances in that they may be reddish or brownish in color. These rashes can quickly spread to surrounding skin of the body. Their edges will either look scaly or develop pus bumps that will ooze. If left untreated, jock’s itch can cause infections on the head of the penis for men and yeast infections for women. Furthermore, because it affects the skin, it can even lead to further complications such as open sores and ulcers.

Treating jock’s itch isn’t very difficult. One can simply buy creams and lotions that are sold over the counter and apply them to the affected area. If jock’s itch has caused blisters, one can use compresses to dry these blisters before applying the antifungal cream. To prevent becoming re-infected, one should always make sure to wash their underwear properly.

Nail Fungus – Net Pharmacy

Fungi infection of the nails, which has the technical name onychomycosis, is a common medical condition that can be caused either by the dermatophyte fungi or Candida. This dermatophyte fungus, which is also responsible for athlete’s foot, is easily transmitted in moist areas like swimming pools, while Candida is responsible for yeast infections. Fungal nails can affect both fingernails and toenails and any part of the nail: the nail plate, the nail bed, or the root of the nail.
People with weakened immune systems, poor hygiene, and those suffering from health conditions like diabetes or psoriasis are more prone to acquiring nail fungi. Furthermore, nail fungi is rarer in children than in adults. Other factors that increase the risk of acquiring nail fungi include being in a constantly humid environment and experiencing regular damage to the nails.

Nail fungi can start out harmless and painless, as a spot of white or yellow discoloration under the nail. This condition, as it develops, causes the nail to look abnormal. The nail can become discoloured and turn black or green from white and yellow. The nail can thicken and start crumbling at the edges, which is a sign that the fungal infection is spreading deeper. The afflicted nail will then become brittle and crumbly. It will lose its shine, appearing dull. Soon, debris will accumulate under the nail, giving it a dark color. Although nail fungi is not highly contagious, it poses a risk of causing further complications like bacterial infection of the skin.

The easiest treatment for nail fungi is to purchase antifungal medicines like antifungal tablets and nail paint. However, for the extremely severe cases, high energy laser treatment may be used to kill the fungus.

Thrush – Net Pharmacy

Thrush is a medical condition caused by a fungus that commonly affects the mouth and throat, the vagina in women, or the diaper area in infants and toddlers. Normally, the fungus that cause thrush is kept in check by the body’s other friendly bacteria and microorganisms. However, there are several factors that may increase one’s risk of developing thrush. These are illness, smoking, stress, and medication. Oral thrush is caused by the fungus oropharyngeal candidiasis, while vaginal thrush is a yeast infection caused by the fungus Candida albicans. If thrush keeps returning, it is called recurrent thrush or complicated thrush.

Vaginal thrush can be considered harmless, because it doesn’t cause pain. However, it causes itching, irritation, and swelling of the vaginal area, accompanied by a white discharge. Furthermore, this type of thrush can be passed on to men through sex. On the other hand, oral thrush causes the mouth to develop painful wounds and lesions that look like creamy white patches. These can spread to the esophagus, making it difficult to swallow. If it gets past the esophagus, it can cause one to have fevers.

Vaginal thrush can be treated with anti-thrush creams, which are to be applied near the vaginal area. One may also ingest antifungal tablets, in which case one should use ordinary emollient and moisturizer for the vaginal area, instead of antifungal creams. Similar to the treatment for vaginal thrush, curing oral thrush can be done with antifungal medications, particularly those that come in lozenges and liquids. To prevent both types of thrush from returning, one should follow good hygiene practices like brushing the teeth thrice a day, flossing regularly, and proper washing of the vaginal area.

Cough medicine can come in three forms: suppressants, expectorants, and topical ointments.

Cough suppressants shouldn’t be used to treat cough caused by the following: asthma, emphysema, and smoking. On the other hand, cough expectorants make it easier to expel the phlegm or sputum by thinning and loosening the mucus and increasing the expulsion of this mucus through the air passages of the lungs.

Cough expectorants can clear congestion, but these shouldn’t be used for prolonged periods. Lastly, topical cough medicines, which can be creams or ointments, are often applied to the throat and chest area, or released into the air through steam vaporizers and inhaled. Cough medicine shouldn’t be used for more than seven days.

Cough medicine that can be bought over the counter usually combines suppressants and expectorants. Aside from coughing, these medicines can be used to relieve colds and body aches. However, before taking cough medicine, one should first look at the ingredients and ensure it doesn’t interfere with other medication. One should be particularly careful with combination medicines. Other natural cough remedies include honey which can also treat sore throats, yoghurts and fortified milk filled with probiotic microorganisms, pineapples, peppermint leaves, eucalyptus oil, and thyme.

There are different ways one can prevent getting cough. Firstly and most importantly, one should make sure to get their annual flu shots. Secondly, one should avoid those who have cold or influenza. Thirdly, one should remember the importance of good hygiene and always wash their hands. Fourthly, if possible, one should avoid smoke and second-hand smoke by steering clear of smokers.

Decongestant – Net Pharmacy

Decongestants, also called nasal decongestants, are a type of pharmaceutical drug that can come in the form of pills, nasal sprays, nose drops, or other liquids. These decongestants, which can be bought over the counter without prescription usually contain pseudoephedrine. Decongestants work by reducing the swelling in the passageways of the nose and shrinking theese swollen blood vessels and tissues. Consequently, this improves air flow and relieves the nasal congestion in the upper respiratory tract. Although most decongestants work for the upper respiratory tract, some brands can relieve congestion and pressure in the head, nose, and ears. Others can also be used for itchy, watery eyes, and eye redness.

These decongestants are similar to antihistamines, in that both can relieve runny noses and effects of cold, but not sneezing and itching. However, antihistamines are mainly used for suppressing allergic reactions to pollen, pet dander, and even dust mites, because it blocks the chemical histamine, which makes the tissues in the nose itch and swell. Possible side effects of taking antihistamines include nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, and having trouble urinating for adults, and restlessness or moodiness in children.

Before taking decongestants, one should make sure to consult a doctor if they have the eye disorder glaucoma, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, heart conditions, and diabetes. One should also be mindful of their caffeine intake when taking decongestants. Decongestants in the form of nasal sprays shouldn’t be used for longer than three straight days, as it may actually lead to the nose becoming more blocked. Side effects for decongestants include feeling jittery, experiencing headaches, dry mouth, and dizziness, and either experiencing drowsiness or having trouble sleeping.

Fever – Net Pharmacy

Fever, which has a medical name of pyrexia, is a common condition where the body’s temperature is above the normal range. Although body temperature naturally changes throughout the day, going lower in the morning and going higher in the afternoon and evening, the normal range of temperature is between 37.5 and 38.3 °C or 99.5 and 100.9 °F. Normal fevers usually don’t go higher than 41 to 42 °C or 105.8 to 107.6 °F. Fever occurs in the part of the brain called hypothalamus, which is primarily concerned with the pituitary gland and the endocrine system. This hypothalamus is the one responsible for altering the temperature and causing it to rise.

Fever can be caused by a number of different reasons, the most common of which is bacterial infection. This bacterial infection can be accompanied by strep throat, flu, chickenpox, or pneumonia. Aside from bacterial infection, fever can also be caused by viral infections. Other causes include heat exhaustion, extreme sunburn, and certain inflammatory conditions. There are even some medications like antibiotics and drugs for high blood pressure or seizure that can cause fevers. Despite all of these, there are times when the cause of fever cannot be identified.

Fever can be treated using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs, which work by bringing the temperature down and relieving uncomfortable symptoms. Generic medications include acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and aspirins. Natural home remedies for fever can be tea made from herbs like yarrow, elderflower, and ginger. Those suffering from fever should remember to increase their fluid intake and dress warmly. Furthermore, they should take a bath in lukewarm water to bring their temperature down or give themselves a sponge bath, particularly in their high-heat areas like the groin and the armpits.

Headache – Net Pharmacy

Headaches that are accompanied by nasal congestion are called sinus headaches. Sinus headaches are caused by clogged sinuses putting pressure above the nose and between the eyes, particularly in the forehead area. Symptoms of a sinus headache include stuffy nose, nasal discharge, sore throat, fatigue, and cough. This headache makes it difficult to move and particularly painful to bend or lie down. Sinus headaches can cause complications like pain and swelling of the eyelids, causing decreased vision.

Sinus headache can be similar to migraine, but migraine is accompanied by nausea or vomiting. Migraine makes one sensitive to sound and light and causes a severe throbbing pain on one side of the head. Triptan, an abortive type of medication, is used for migraine to reduce the pain. To treat sinus headaches, one can use over the counter painkillers such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen, but one has to remember not to take these drugs for more than ten days. One can also use decongestants to alleviate the feeling of having blocked sinus cavities. Nasal decongestant sprays shouldn’t be used for more than three days, while oral decongestants shouldn’t be used for more than seven days. Moreover, one can use antihistamines which block the chemical histamine that causes the nasal passages to itch and swell. One can use a humidifier or vaporizer to keep the nasal passages moist, thereby avoiding irritation of the sinuses.

To prevent sinus headaches, one should avoid perfume and cigarette smoke, which irritates the nasal passages. One should take note of any particular foods, odours, or drinks that trigger their headaches and try to avoid these triggers. Furthermore, one should make sure to take regular meals, making sure to take plenty of fluids, and keep a regular sleep pattern.

Preventative – Net Pharmacy

Preventative drugs or preventative medication is part of what is known as preventative healthcare, which is a set of measures designed to prevent transmission of diseases. Diseases can be caused by a number of uncontrollable factors, namely genetic predisposition and environmental features. That is why preventative healthcare consists of methods to keep the body physically healthy and the mind mentally sound, so as to be able to fight against these unchangeable conditions. Preventative healthcare, also called prophylaxis, is composed of four levels of disease prevention.

The first level of disease prevention is called primary prevention. Primary prevention is all about either eliminating the disease causing agents or increasing the body’s resistance to these agents. This level urges people to maintain a healthy and balanced diet and to keep to an exercise regimen appropriate to their body. Most importantly, it urges people to get vaccinated so as to acquire immunization against some diseases. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure, as they say.

The secondary level of prevention is treatment and it is about detecting dormant, existing diseases before they begin to manifest their symptoms. This can be done through regular consultations and check-ups with a doctor, who can perform disease screenings and identify risk factors one is most prone to. Disease screenings can be done for high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high blood cholesterol, and the different kinds of cancer.

The tertiary level of prevention is rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is done when one does acquire a certain disease, but rehabilitation ensures that the negative impacts of this disease are lessened. This level is about taking medication and undergoing medical procedures to stop the disease from progressing further.

Sore Throat – Net Pharmacy

Sore throat, which is caused by acute pharyngitis or inflammation of the throat, causes pain, irritation, and itchiness. It can be caused by different reasons, like bacterial infections such as strep throat and inflammation of the tonsils, viral infections such as mumps and influenza, and infection of the voice box. There are four common types of sore throat. The first is pharyngitis, which affects the pharynx. The second is tonsillitis, affecting the tonsils. The third is laryngitis, which affects the larynx. The last is epiglottitis, affecting the epiglottis.

Sore throats normally don’t last longer than a week. Those that do are caused by throat irritation from smoking and air pollution, stomach acid that goes back to the throat, and an injury like a cut or a puncture to the throat. This type of sore throat is usually accompanied by other conditions like rash, joint pain, or difficulty breathing. If one experiences prolonged sore throat with fever and bloody mucus, one should immediately consult with a doctor.

For easy treatment of sore throat, one can gargle warm water mixed with salt and drink plenty of warm fluids like teas and soup. For medicinal treatment, one can take throat lozenges or anti-inflammatory medicines like ibuprofen and acetaminophen. If the sore throat is caused by bacterial infection, one can take antibiotics. If it is caused by viral infection, one can take decongestants and pain relievers to alleviate the symptoms.

To prevent sore throats, one should make sure to always their hands with soap or use hand sanitizers so as to kill germs and bacteria, lessening the chances of acquiring sore throat through bacterial and viral infection.

Swollen Glands – Net Pharmacy

Having swollen glands is a sign that one’s lymph glands or lymph nodes have been infected. Lymph glands are lumps of tissue in the shape of an oval that can be found throughout the body, such as in the armpit area, the neck area, and the groin area. These contain lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, and their function is to fight bacteria, viruses, and other harmful agents to protect the body. Therefore, these will become infected when one experiences bacterial or viral infections. These infections can be fairly minor like an ear or throat infection, or it can be other inflammatory conditions such as the common cold, tonsillitis, or cellulitis. However, swollen glands can be caused by more severe viral illnesses like rubella and measles and bacterial infections like tuberculosis and syphilis. In addition, some conditions like HIV and lupus, where the immune system attacks the body, can also cause swollen glands.

The main symptom of gland infection is that the gland will to about an inch, which is three times their normal size. The swollen gland will feel soft and tender, and one will feel pain when they press on these glands. The skin over this lymph gland will be red and warm. This swollen gland may even be accompanied by fever, sore throat, and mouth sores. One should immediately consult with a doctor if the lymph gland is hard and won’t move, and if it doesn’t go away after a few weeks and instead becomes bigger.

Because swollen glands are inflammation of the lymph nodes, one can use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs like Advil, Motrin, or Aleve. To alleviate the pain, one can take painkillers like Tylenol.

Blood Pressure Monitors

Blood pressure monitors are diagnostic tools that can be used to measure the blood pressure of a person. Also known as a sphygmomanometer, blood pressure monitors measure the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. These tools can be used for both hospital and home use, for personal use. The products featured are typically used for personal use, for those who are conscious of their blood pressure and want to monitor the levels at home. Blood pressure monitors, which are made for personal use, are easy to use and electronic, which can help even someone with no medical knowledge to be able to monitor their blood pressure. This may be especially important for those who may be predisposed to high blood pressure or hypertension to ensure that they are within the normal range of blood pressure.

Electronic blood pressure monitors feature a measuring tool, which is responsible for displaying the results of the blood pressure measurement. It is also responsible for inflating and deflating the cuff that is placed on the arm of the person being measured. This inflating and deflating of the cuff is used to test the arm, which will result in the blood pressure to be shown on the display.

As the blood pressure monitors comes with only one size cuff, it may be possible that there would be a need to purchase an additional cuff to adjust to the size of the user’s arm.

Ovulation Tests

Pregnancy tests are used primarily by women to determine if they are pregnant. There are several tests that can be done in a hospital to determine if a woman is pregnant, but there are at home tests that may be done beforehand to help to attempt t confirm pregnancy. These tests require usually a urine or, less frequently, blood sample. This sample is used by the test to see if a woman is pregnant or not. Studies have shown that the accuracy of at home use pregnancy tests is significantly more inaccurate not because the product is faulty, however it is due to user error. This is why it is important to ensure that the user read the directions of the pregnancy carefully to ensure that the test is done right to avoid “false negatives or false positives.”

Ovulation tests, on the other hand, are tools used by women to see if they are ovulating or not. These tools help to determine when a woman is the most fertile when they are looking to become pregnant. By using ovulation tests, it can help to maximize the efforts to conceive a baby. They are only accurate if a woman is close to ovulation, so it is important that the user be aware of their own body and their own cycle so that they use the ovulation tests as accurately as possible.

Both pregnancy and ovulation tests are useful in determining pregnancy and an ovulation cycle, respectively. While they are more accurate now, there is still a chance that a false positive or negative may occur, especially in pregnancy tests.

Syringes

Syringes are diagnostic products that are comprised of a tube or barrel, plunger and needle that can be used to inject or extract fluids such as blood. Medical professionals and people who have been instructed by medical professionals are authorized for home use using syringes for a medical purpose. One such example of home use would be the injection of insulin for people with diabetes. Syringes have many different sizes of needles and volumes to cater to the specific need of the person. For people with diabetes, for example, an insulin needle tends to have a smaller, thinner needle. This can help to decrease the amount of pain felt by the user and to ensure that the needle does not penetrate too deeply.

Syringes come in all different sizes and functions, but the ones typically commercially sold are for use by diabetic patients at home, especially for insulin or other “pen” type tools to administer their insulin. Some syringes are also latex free, which can help those who have a latex allergy to use them safely without the risk or worry of having an allergic reaction to latex.

Due to the fact that syringes pierce the skin and enter the body, it is extremely important that all syringes are sterile and only used once. This is to ensure that there is no cross contamination or infection. It is especially bad to share needles, which may increase the risk of infections such as HIV.

TENS Machine

A TENS machine is a tool that is used therapeutically to help relieve pain through the use of electrical stimulation and electrical current. An anagram meaning transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, these machines apply an electrical current underneath the skin to activate and excite nerves, stimulating them to possibly relieve pain. TENS machines are normally used by people to treat pain and commercial machines are non-invasive ways to stimulate nerves.

Some machines can act as massagers, stimulating nerves to relax sore and tired muscles. These machines are usually battery operated and are extremely portable. The intensity of the stimulation can be controlled and as such, can be personalized to the person using the device. TENS machines can be considered natural ways to relieve pain, as they do not require the ingestion of medications to act as an anti-inflammatory or pain reliever.

By attaching the small electrodes provided with the device to the skin, the TENS machine sends small impulses to that specific area of the body, normally resulting in a tingling feeling, which can relax muscles and reduce pain. TENS machines have been shown to help relieve the pain associated with arthritis, back pain, pain arising from sports injuries, and many more. It is also associated with being used during labor to help to alleviate labor pains. While it is shown to help to alleviate pain, a TENS machine is still a tool that should not be taken lightly. It is important to read all pamphlets and the instruction manual prior to the use of the TENS machine to ensure that no adverse side effects arise. People who have a pacemaker, for example, should not use the machine, so it is important to read all information prior to use.

Thermometers

Thermometers are diagnostic tools that are used to measure the body temperature of a person. In principle, thermometers in general have a wide variety of uses and functions, ranging from applications in cooking and medically. Traditionally, thermometers for measuring body temperature should be placed in certain areas where the body is the hottest. Some of these areas include the armpit, into the rectum and underneath the tongue. Another less common location for measuring temperature is in the ear.

Modern thermometers used to measure body temperature consist of an LCD display and a temperature sensor, usually with a metal tip. This tip is inserted into the aforementioned locations to measure body temperature, which is then used to evaluate if a person has a fever. This fever may be an indicator that the person is sick with an infection and should be treated. Digital thermometers in particular can be programmed to measure temperature in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, depending on the preference of the user. Many thermometers are also equipped with an alarm that can be used to indicate to the person measuring the body temperature when the reading has completed. These readings normally take about 10-20 seconds depending on the location used to collect the readings. After this amount of time, the alarm will sound, indicating that the thermometer is done collecting the reading.

Oral thermometers are easy to clean and maintain, as the tip used to measure temperature can be washed and sterilized. Ear thermometers, on the other hand, usually require a cover or other implements to ensure that the process of measuring the body temperature through the ear is safe and infection free.

Ear Pain

Ear pain is a common medical condition that can be caused by a variety of factors. Those who experience ear pain tend to feel discomfort or pain, possibly arising from the inner or outer ear. Common causes of ear pain include ear infection, ear injury, or inflammation. Ear pain or earache may also be caused by a rupture in the eardrum, excess buildup of earwax in the canal, or even fungal build up. Ear pain can also be caused by other medical conditions such as a sore throat or a sinus infection or sinusitis.

Since ear pain is a very generalized term and condition, it is important to understand what was the cause of the pain experienced. There are many medications to address ear pain treatment, but it is important to pinpoint what specifically is the cause. While there are some oral medications to treat ear pain, one of the most common medications is topical treatment in the form of eardrops. Some eardrops are formulated to combat fungus and inflammation, which can help to alleviate the cause of ear pain arising from fungal infection or bacteria.

These kinds of eardrops relieve pain associated with inflammation, hinder the buildup of mucous, and may even kill bacteria to prevent infection. There are others that work to soften wax that has hardened is causing pain, these help to alleviate blockades in the ear that may be causing difficulty in hearing. This is why it is important to understand what is the cause of a person’s specific ear pain. By pinpointing the exact cause, the correct type of medication can be administered to help alleviate ear pain, as ear pain can arise from a variety of factors.

Ear Plugs

Earplugs are devices that can be used for a variety of uses. One of the most simple is to use earplugs control the amount of noise heard by the person using them. These may be used on a plane, when there are a large number of people or even at home, if the person is having difficulty getting to sleep at night due to noises heard while trying to fall asleep. Earplugs, for those who use them, have been shown to reduce ambient noise and can help a person who has difficulty sleeping at night due to excessive noise.

Swimmers also find use for earplugs in that they help to keep water from surging into the ear, be it from the pool or the beach. One common condition that arises among people who swim is a medical condition known as swimmer’s ear. It is an ear infection that may cause pain that is caused by bacteria. This bacterium thrives on the water that may be in the ear due to swimming, creating an environment perfect for bacterial growth. By using earplugs while swimming, especially if a person is a competitive swimmer where they spend a long time in the water, can act as a barrier. This barrier can help to prevent water from staying in the ear for an extended period, thus helping to prevent ear infections like swimmer’s ear.

As the use of earplugs is varied and vast, there are many different designs and shapes to cater to the specific needs of the person who uses it. Some may be mouldable, able to fit easily the shape of a person’s ear, while others are disposable. Disposable kinds are useful, especially for those who are worried they may still get an ear infection due to use of ear plugs.

Ear Wax

Earwax or cerumen, is the yellow waxy substance produced by the ear. It is produced primarily as a protection for the ear canal, acting as a protectant from dirt and other possibly harmful substances that may enter the ear. By trapping these foreign substances, earwax can help to prevent ear infections and the subsequent pain associated with the said infection. Earwax is also shown to provide lubrication to the ear and can help to keep the ear clean.

While earwax is shown to have a beneficial role in the ear, mainly to help to clean and prevent ear infections, the amount produced by people can vary as much as skin or hair color. Some people produce a large amount of earwax while others do not. When earwax stays in the ear for an extended period, it may harden and clump together. This clumping may eventually cause an ear blockage, eventually causing loss of hearing. It has been shown that one of the most common causes of ear blockage is the improper use of ear swabs. By using ear swabs incorrectly, a person runs the risk of pushing wax deeper into the ear canal, eventually causing a blockage.

One of the most common treatments for buildup of earwax is to use eardrops specifically formulated to combat earwax. These formulas are made of oils and other ingredients that target hardened earwax, aiming to soften it while cleaning out the ear. Through this softening, the excess earwax buildup in the ear can be easily removed, helping to relieve the ear pain or hearing loss that may be associated with the excess buildup of ear wax. These ear drops may also serve as a natural and safer alternative to using ear swabs, which are known to be a cause of earwax blockage.

Dry Eyes

Dry eyes are a common condition that many people face. It is normally caused when the eyes do not produce enough fluid or lubrication to keep the eyes moist. As a result of this, eyes tend to become dry and make the person experiencing it feel very uncomfortable. Dry eyes tend to feel stinging and may even cause redness. There are many reasons why a person can have dry eyes. Some can be due to genetics due to a decreased production of tears, or it could be environmental, possibly arising from pollution or dry air.

Red eyes, on the other hand, is another common condition affecting the eyes. It is characterized by the inflammation of the vessels in the eyes, which then causes redness in the eyes, often called bloodshot eyes. While red eyes are a sign of other underlying medical conditions, it can also be simply caused by irritants. Some of the most common irritants that cause red eyes include dry air, dust, and allergic reactions. Red eyes may also be a sign of infection, so it is important to monitor the eyes to ensure that there is no infection present.

For both dry eyes and red eyes, one of the simplest methods of helping to alleviate the effects is to use eye drops that are formulated for each problem. Many eye drops are made to lubricate the eye, acting as artificial tears that can help to reduce the pain and stinging that arises from having dry eyes. Red eyes also have other eye drops that can help to address the redness, as sometimes redness can be caused by dry eyes.

Eye Allergies

Eye allergies are allergic reactions in the eye in response to exposure to substances that a person is allergic to. There are many kinds of allergens in the world and some things that may cause an allergic reaction in one person may not necessarily cause a reaction in another person. Some common allergens include pet dander, mold, pollen, and dust. Allergies may also occur due to cosmetics like makeup and eye drops. Itchy dry eyes, watery eyes, eye redness, and many other symptoms are signs of an eye allergy.

PREVENTING EYE ALLERGIES

There are several ways to prevent an eye allergy. If the person is a contact lens wearer, the first thing that should be done is to remove the contacts, if possible, as contacts can attract allergens in the air. The best way to prevent an eye allergy is to simply avoid the allergen that causes it. Over time, a person can avoid the locations and situations that have the allergen, such as avoiding being outdoors for too long during the seasons when pollen count is high.

TREATING EYE ALLERGIES

In order to treat eye allergies, one of the most common methods used to treat the allergic reaction would be to administer special eye drops formulated to combat allergies. These eye drops have lubrication properties that help address the reaction, as many eye allergies cause dryness and redness. Along with this, these special eye drops also can have antihistamines that help to reduce the allergic reaction to the specific allergen. Always make sure that the eye drops used to treat an eye allergy is formulated to treat eye allergies. There are many eye drops on the market, so it is important to read the label to ensure it can help treat eye allergies.

They can be caused by a variety of organisms, so one of the biggest ways to prevent eye infections is to avoid touching the eye often. Hand washing frequently, especially when coming in contact with another person who has an eye infection, is important to avoid infection. Contact lens wearers are also very susceptible to eye infections, as the contact lens can attract substances to the eye. Proper care and disposal of contact lenses can help to prevent a person from contracting an eye infection.

DIAGNOSING EYE INFECTIONS

One large problem with eye infections is that the symptoms mimic common problems with the eye. These include dry eyes, pain, redness, itching, and watery eyes. Since many people experience these on a daily basis, people may be unaware that they actually have an eye infection. If a person suspects that they have an eye infection, it is best to visit an optometrist or eye doctor. Many treatments for eye infections require a visit to the eye doctor first, so it should be a top priority to confirm the presence of an infection. If a person has an eye infection and he or she is a contact lens wearer, it is important that they avoid wearing them until the infection has been treated.

TREATING EYE INFECTIONS

One of the common ways to treat eye infections is through the use of eye drops that are made specifically for this complication. These eye drops are made with antibiotics to combat the organisms that are affecting the eye, if used correctly.

Red Eyes

Dry eyes are a common condition that many people face. It is normally caused when the eyes do not produce enough fluid or lubrication to keep the eyes moist. As a result of this, eyes tend to become dry and make the person experiencing it feel very uncomfortable. Dry eyes tend to feel stinging and may even cause redness. There are many reasons why a person can have dry eyes. Some can be due to genetics due to a decreased production of tears, or it could be environmental, possibly arising from pollution or dry air.

Red eyes, on the other hand, is another common condition affecting the eyes. It is characterized by the inflammation of the vessels in the eyes, which then causes redness in the eyes, often called bloodshot eyes. While red eyes are a sign of other underlying medical conditions, it can also be simply caused by irritants. Some of the most common irritants that cause red eyes include dry air, dust, and allergic reactions. Red eyes may also be a sign of infection, so it is important to monitor the eyes to ensure that there is no infection present.

For both dry eyes and red eyes, one of the simplest methods of helping to alleviate the effects is to use eye drops that are formulated for each problem. Many eye drops are made to lubricate the eye, acting as artificial tears that can help to reduce the pain and stinging that arises from having dry eyes. Red eyes also have other eye drops that can help to address the redness, as sometimes redness can be caused by dry eyes.

Anaesthetic

Anaesthetics are drugs and medications that cause anaesthesia, which means a ‘loss of sensation.’ It can either be a numbing of sensation or the inducing of sleep.

Anaesthetics are drugs and medications that cause anaesthesia, which means a ‘loss of sensation.’ It can either be a numbing of sensation or the inducing of sleep. Anaesthetics work by preventing the nerve signals that tells one to keep awake from reaching the brain. Only once the anaesthetic wears off will these nerve signals be able to finally get to the brain. Anaesthetics come in two kinds: the first is local anaesthetic, which is used for minor procedures. With local anaesthetics, only a selected part of the body is numb and the person remains aware and conscious. The second kind is general anaesthetic, which is used for serious procedures and surgeries. The person, in this case, is unconscious. Other more specific types of anaesthetic are regional anaesthetic which targets a definite region of the body, epidural anaesthesia which is used on the lower half of the body, spinal anaesthetic that provides total numbness, and lastly, sedation which relaxes a person physically and mentally.

FORMS OF ANAESTHETICS

Anaesthetics can come in multiple forms. It can be in the form of ointments, sprays, or drops. In surgeries and medical procedures, it is given to one via injection into a vein. It can also be a gas to be inhaled for the effects to take place. Most topical anaesthetic gels contain amethocaine, a potent anaesthetic that prevents the brain from receiving pain messages from the nerve cells. Other active ingredients are lignocaine and prilocaine, both of which can numb tissue. Products with these ingredients can last from four hours to six hours.

SIDE EFFECTS OF ANAESTHETICS

Before using anaesthetics, one should be aware of the possible side effects, namely nausea, or the feeling of being sick, vomiting, headache, and dizziness. One may also experience itchiness and bruising in the area where the anaesthesia is used.

Antiseptic

Antiseptics can lower the risk of acquiring infection, sepsis, or putrefaction, because it stops these microorganisms. Antiseptics are often called ‘skin disinfectants.’ However, disinfectants are distinct from antiseptics because they are primarily used on inanimate objects. One should also take care to remember that antiseptics are different from antibiotics, which work inside the body.

The word ‘antiseptic’ comes from two Greek words: anti meaning against, and septikos meaning putrefactive. From the make-up of the words alone, one can already tell that antiseptics are chemical agents that prevent the growth and spreading of microorganisms. Antiseptics can lower the risk of acquiring infection, sepsis, or putrefaction, because it stops these microorganisms. Normally, they contain a lot of active chemical agents like biocides. Antiseptics can be either bacteriocidal or bacteriostatic. Bacteriocidal antiseptics destroy microbes, while bacteriostatic antiseptics inhibit their reproduction. Antiseptics are often called ‘skin disinfectants.’ However, disinfectants are distinct from antiseptics because they are primarily used on inanimate objects. One should also take care to remember that antiseptics are different from antibiotics, which work inside the body.

USES OF ANTISEPTICS

Antiseptics are mainly used in the field of medicine and health, particularly for surgeries and operations. As a matter of fact, ancient Greek and Sumerian physicians who lived thousands of years ago advocated the use of antiseptics. In modern times, antiseptics are still used by doctors to disinfect their hands, their equipment, and even the portion of the body of the patient which they will be operating on. Antiseptics, the most common of them being alcohol, are also used in food preservation and even in the embalming of the dead!


ANTISEPTIC PRODUCTS

As antiseptics are used mainly to disinfect wounds, it can usually be found in first aid kits and are usually available for sale over the counter. There are a variety of antiseptic products, like antiseptic liquids, antiseptic ointment, and antiseptic spray. There are also antiseptic lotions and antiseptic hand creams, for those who are conscious of the effect on their skin. As for those who are always on the go, there are antiseptic wipes and antiseptic towelettes for easy disinfection in case of an emergency anywhere and anytime.

Dressings

A medical dressing is a pad or compress that is disinfected and sterilized. The purpose of a medical dressing is to promote the healing of wounds, which it does by covering the injury. People often confuse dressings with bandages, but a bandage is the part used to hold the dressing in place.

Although its main purpose is to help a wound heal, a medical dressing has a lot of uses. For bleeding wounds, it can stem the bleeding to speed up the clotting process and absorb the blood and any other fluid the wound may be secreting. Some dressings provide pain relief, either through the dressing’s active chemicals and materials, or through placebo effect. A dressing can also be used to hide wounds, if one so wishes.

First Aid Kits

A first aid kit is a set of supplies, over the counter drugs, medical products, and equipment stored for use during emergencies or in the event of minor and common injuries. First aid kits can be bought or put together at home, and one may have separate first aid kits for his house and his car. The contents of a first aid kit may differ depending on one’s geographical location, medical condition, and preferences. As a matter of fact, there are first aid kits designed specifically for certain activities like hiking, camping, and boating. International standard mandates that first aid kits must have the symbol for first aid, which is a white cross on a green background, to make it easier to identify and recognizable to people requiring first aid.

FIRST AID KIT CONTENTS

A basic first aid kit should contain disinfectants like hand sanitizers, antibiotic ointments, and antiseptic solutions. It should contain bandages in assorted sizes and instant cold packs and compresses for muscle strains and sprains. Furthermore, it should have it petroleum jelly or other lubricants. It should have vital materials such as adhesive tape and duct tape, cotton balls and cotton tipped swabs, several pairs of disposable non-latex gloves, scissors, safety pins, and plastic bags. Most importantly, it should contain a first aid manual.

As for medication, a first aid kit should have pain relievers, laxatives, antacids, and cough and cold medications. One should not forget to put his personal medication in his first aid kit. First aid kits also need emergency items like important phone numbers, small waterproof flashlights with extra batteries, waterproof matches, sunscreen, insect repellents, and a whistle.

First aid kits should be checked regularly, to make sure the medications are still valid, the phone numbers are updates, and the batteries for the flashlight still work.

Hot Cold Pack

Looking for a simple way to relieve your pain? Try this hot and cold therapy using hot and cold packs! Hot/Cold Packs are an easy to apply pain relief therapy that soothes your joints and muscles. What’s special about hot cold packs is the non-invasive feature because you simply have to place it on top of the sore area. Plus, hot and cold packs are non-addictive, unlike other pain relief medications.

BENEFITS OF COLD THERAPY

A cold therapy usually consists of an ice or gel pack. Cold therapy restricts blood flow to the injured area by decreasing the size of the blood vessel opening (or vasoconstriction). This will slow down the flow of blood onto the swollen or bruised area.

To use effectively, apply the cold pack 1 to 2 days after the injury occurred. Do not apply for more than 20 minutes and make sure to place in a towel first.

Cold therapy is the recommended treatment for injuries, namely strain, sprain and bruises acquired during heavy sports or activities.


BENEFITS OF HOT THERAPY

The application of heat dilates the blood vessels (or vasodilation). This promotes increased blood flow and so, your sore muscles and joints receive more oxygen and nutrients, thereby decreasing the pain you feel. Heat from the hot therapy eases muscle spasms and allows a greater degree of flexibility for your tendons and ligaments.

Hot therapy or heat therapy is therefore suitable as an easy, simple remedy for stiff joints and muscle pain.

In order to use safely and to prevent incurring a burn injury, it is advisable to wrap the hot pack in a towel. Do NOT apply the hot pack directly onto skin.

Plasters

A medical plaster is made from a bandage which is then soaked in plaster. This medical plaster is commonly used to support broken bones, done by wrapping the plaster around the damaged limb. Afterwards, an orthopaedic cast is set around the limb. Aside from the field of medicine and health, plasters are also used in orthotics, prosthetics, dentistry, and even in fire protection!

A medical plaster should be waterproof and breathable, providing proper air circulation for the skin. It should be flexible, so as not to restrain movement. Moreover, it should provide instant action and protection against dirt and bacteria.

Medical plaster is also available in spray form. However, in this form, a person should be careful not to spray near their eyes and nose. Spray plaster also shouldn’t be used for large or infected wounds, or burns. Applying this spray plaster may cause a slight stinging sensation.

Blister

A blister is a pocket of liquid that forms after the skin has been damaged. The job of this fluid is to protect the skin underneath and allow it to heal. This fluid is colorless, however it may become inflamed or infected and filled with blood or pus instead. An infected blister can lead to complications like secondary impetigo, which is a bacterial skin infection, and other conditions like cellulitis or sepsis.

Typically, blisters develop on the outer, upper layers of the skin, particularly in the hands and the feet but it can form on any part of the body. The most common cause of blisters is friction, which is when something continuously rubs against the skin. Other causes of blisters are burns due to extreme temperature or chemical exposure, crushing or pinching, and medical conditions like contact dermatitis and allergic eczema. Blister in itself can be a symptom of chickenpox, shingles, or herpes.

HOW TO PREVENT BLISTERS

To prevent blisters on the feet, one should not wear tight, ill-fitting, or stiff shoes like high heels and dress shoes. Because blisters form faster on moist skin, one should wear keep their feet dry. This can be done by wearing clean socks and bringing along a spare pair or two or by using talcum powder. If one feels that a blister is beginning to develop, he can use protective padding, bandages, and tapes on this area. To prevent blisters on the hand, one should use gloves when doing manual work and when handling chemicals.

HOW TO TREAT BLISTERS

Blisters can heal on their own, if they are given enough time. However, to prevent further complications, one can choose to use plasters and rolls of gauze to protect the blister. By keeping the blister intact, one can avoid infection and allow it to heal faster.

Corns

In the field of medicine, a corn is not the small yellow grain known to others as maize. Instead, a corn or hyperkeratosis is a callus in the shape of grain that occurs in the upper, outer layers of the skin, particularly between the toes and fingers. They get their name from their unique shape, which is the shape of a grain of corn, unsurprisingly. A corn, similar to a callus, is a thick and hardened layer of skin that the body forms to protect itself against consistent friction. What makes corn different from callus is that callus forms a mass of dead cells in its center. Corns, like calluses, can be painful or not.

TREATING A CORN

While corn can go away on its own, it can be unsightly, prompting one to immediately get rid of it. One should also seek medical help and treatment if he experiences redness and soreness around the corn, if there is pain and swelling, and if the fingers and toes begin to undergo discoloration. A corn may also lead to gangrene, or the decaying of tissues, which is another reason to have it treated promptly.

To treat a corn, one can use corn removal pads and skin softening creams, both of which will make the skin turn white. Afterwards, one can trim the excess skin, making the corn smaller. There are also corn removal patches which contain salicylic acid, a chemical that can wither away the hardened skin. One can apply antibiotic creams and ointments on a corn to prevent it from getting infected.

PREVENTING CORNS

To prevent a corn, one should avoid excess friction on the hands by using gloves and on the feet by wearing socks. In addition, one should choose footwear with additional space for the toes. One can also use moisturizing and lubricating agents like lotions.

Cracked Heel

Having cracked heels, also called heel fissures, is a very common problem. It happens when the skin on the bottom of the feet becomes too dry and then splits open. Having cracked heels may simply be a cosmetic problem to some. However to others, having cracked heels may make it painful and difficult to walk. The skin on the bottom of the feet is sensitive, and if the cracks on the heel are deep enough, it may even bleed! These cracks can also become infected with bacteria and viruses, leading to illness and further skin complications like cellulitis.

Spotting cracked heels is easy. The first sigh of cracked heels is the hardening and thickening of the skin around the rim of the heel. This skin my also become discoloured, turning yellowish or dark brownish. Aside from these, one may experience itching, peeling, and inflammation of the affected area.

CAUSES OF CRACKED HEELS

The main reason behind cracked heels is having dry skin, a normal skin condition called xerosis. However, other factors may contribute to drying feet. These factors include experiencing cold, dry weather, dehydration, and medical conditions like diabetes, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and hypothyroidism. People who take long, hot showers or baths, and people who use harsh soaps on their feet are more prone to cracked heels. Overweight people, and people who put too much pressure on their feet by prolonged standing, are also at greater risk.

TREATING CRACKED HEELS

Because cracked heels are caused by dry skin, one can use oil based moisturizing creams and foot lotions to keep the skin hydrated. There are heel balms that are specially made for the sensitive skin of the bottom of the feet. Heel pads and heel cups can support the heel by redistributing its weight. One can also use tissue glue to keep the cracked skin together.

Foot Odour

Embarrassed of having smelly feet? No longer! Fight foot odour with foot sprays and foot powders!

Having smelly feet is a type of body odour and a common condition known as bromodosis. The feet have more sweat glands than any other part of the body, and unlike the body’s other sweat glands, the sweat glands in the feet secrete all the time. The feet naturally are also home to millions of bacteria. When the feet’s sweat glands produce perspiration, these bacteria in the feet grow and reproduce. When the feet sweat excessively, it’s like the bacteria are having a feast! These bacteria are responsible for producing the unpleasant smell that is foot odour. Other conditions like athlete’s foot or jock’s itch can also cause the feet to be smelly.


CAUSES OF FOOT ODOUR

Foot odours happen because of excessive sweating. Some medical conditions, like hyperhidrosis, cause abnormally increased sweating. Hormonal changes among teenagers and pregnant women can also cause them to sweat more. There are other factors that can contribute to the feet becoming smelly. Wearing the same shoes everyday will cause the sweat to soak into the material of the shoes. Having poor personal hygiene will increase the chances of having foot odour.

PREVENTING FOOT ODOUR

To prevent foot odour, a person can wear socks and even bring along a change of a pair or two. One should use wool or cotton socks, or sports socks, which are more absorbent than nylon socks. In addition, one can change shoes at least every other day. Maintaining good personal hygiene and washing the feet every day will also lower the risk of having foot odour. Moreover, a person can use antiperspirants and foot sprays or foot powder on their feet. One can use antibacterial foot scrubs to eliminate the bacteria in the feet.

Shoe Comfort

As the saying goes, spend your money where you spend your time. Spend your money on your bed, spend your money on your phone, and most importantly, spend your money on your shoes! Shoe comfort is all about the 3 F’s: Fashion, Fit, and Function. Running or walking shoes don’t have to be plain and dress shoes don’t have to be uncomfortable. However, it cannot be denied that there might be times when your favourite design doesn’t have your size, or times when your favourite pair of shoes won’t fit you anymore. When it comes to these cases, don’t throw out your kicks just yet!

PRODUCTS FOR SHOE COMFORT

There are lots of products available for shoe fitting and shoe comfort. Most insoles are designed to cushion the forefront of the foot for a firmer fit, and to ease the discomfort and pressure applied to the front of the feet and the toes. Similar to normal insoles, sports insoles are made from polyester and include nylon shell for added support and stability. Insoles for women are dual-purpose and made to give comfort to feet that are tired and aching from a long day of wearing high heels.

For the back of the feet, a person can use sling-back strips. Sling-back strips prevent shoe straps from chafing the skin and slipping down the heel. A person can use heel cups, which cradles the heel and supports the back of the feet. Heel cushions, on the other hand, are used under the heel to relieve the pressure and absorb the shock of walking.

As for protecting the toes, a person can use gel toe spreaders, which is applied to the toes to reduce the friction caused by rubbing against each other. Toe sleeve protectors are wrapped around the toes, and do the same thing.

Toes

Although they’re small, your toes do more than you think! The feet have twenty six bones and fourteen of those are in the toes, and those digits on your foot are responsible for helping your foot support your weight. They provide the balance you need to keep yourself upright when you walk. However, your toes, like any other part of the body, can be injured or damaged. Toes can be damaged because of physical activities like playing sports and running. In addition, wearing ill-fitting footwear like shoes that are too tight, too narrow, and too loose can also cause toe disorders. Medical conditions like arthritis can also cause toe problems.

COMMON TOE DISORDERS AND INJURIES

There are plenty of common medical conditions concerning the toes. One of them is the development of corns. Corns are small calluses in the shape of their namesake grain, with a mass of dead cells at its center. Another disorder of the toes are ingrown toenails, where the nails grow into the flesh, causing pain and redness. Frequent rubbing of the toes against each other will cause friction and develop into blisters. A prevalent condition that affects the bones of the toes is bunion, which happens when the bones of the big toe move towards the other toes. This causes a bump to form on the side on the big toe and makes walking difficult. The bones of the toes can also be sprained, fractured, or dislocated. A sprained toe will manifest as a bruising and stiffness.

TREATMENT FOR COMMON TOE DISORDERS AND INJURIES

A person can apply corn removal pads and skin softening creams to their toes to treat corns. To treat blisters, one can use gel pads and gel separators to lessen friction between the toes. For disorders of the toe bones, one can use toe plasters.

Travel socks are socks that have been specially made and crafted for wear on long journeys, car rides, and flights. Travel socks improve circulation of blood in the legs, providing comfort to your tired, aching limbs. Because travel socks are antibacterial, they can even keep your legs and feet feeling fresh. They can absorb moisture from sweating and lessen friction of the legs rubbing against various surfaces, thereby avoiding the development of blisters. Travel socks can prevent swollen ankles and ease leg discomfort caused by the cramped conditions of riding in cars, buses, and planes.

Hangover Relief

A hangover is an unpleasant side effect from a over consumption of alcohol, primarily ethanol. The symptoms of hangover can vary from person to person, but commonly people who experience hangovers tend to feel dizzy, drowsy, have a headache, and may have trouble concentrating. It is not a medical condition; it is more an effect caused by drinking too much alcohol.

CAUSES OF HANGOVERS

It has not been established what is the specific cause of a hangover, but it is widely understood that hangovers are caused by excessive consumption of alcohol. Some factors that may cause a person to be more prone to having a hangover include sleep deprivation, dehydration, and metabolism

TREATMENT OF HANGOVERS

While there are many different treatments that have been suggested to treat a hangover, there is very little evidence shown that proves the beneficial effects of using said treatment. One of the best ways to avoid having a hangover is to simply observe moderation when consuming alcohol or even to avoid consuming alcohol altogether.

One such example that has potential benefits is to make sure to drink enough water other than alcohol before, during, and after. By doing so, a person may avoid feeling dizzy, having a dry mouth, or feeling thirsty, all symptoms of a hangover.

NATURAL REMEDIES FOR HANGOVERS

In the same case as treating a hangover medically, there are some natural remedies that exist to help alleviate the effects. However, they also have not been proven to treat hangovers entirely. One treatment is a supplement that aims to replace the amino acids and other body nutrients that are lost during consumption of alcohol. By doing so, the harmful effects of a hangover are less felt, helping to prevent dizziness and other conditions commonly associated with a hangover.

Heartburn

Heartburn is a medical condition that is a pain that feels like a burning sensation. This is commonly felt in the heart area, behind the breastbone. It is normal to experience heartburn, but if it is felt on a regular basis it may be a sign of other complications such as an ulcer or other conditions that require medical attention. If heartburn occurs more than twice a week, it may be recommended to see a doctor.

CAUSES OF HEARTBURN

Heartburn is caused when stomach acid that should normally stay inside the stomach backs up into the esophagus. The stomach is lined with a substance that protects itself from the stomach acid, but the esophagus is not lined with the same substance. As a result of this, when the acid backs up into the esophagus the burning sensation is felt. This backing up of acid into the esophagus is usually caused when the sphincter dividing the stomach and esophagus weakens, allowing the stomach acid to flow back into the esophagus.

TREATMENT OF HEARTBURN

There are many medications that can be used to treat heartburn. Many of the medications work to reduce the production of stomach fluid, while others are antacids that work to neutralize the acid that flows into the esophagus.

NATURAL REMEDIES FOR HEARTBURN

One natural remedy to treat heartburn is to avoid eating overly spicy foods, as they tend to aggravate the production of stomach acid. Another is to drink aloe; it has been shown to help reduce inflammation, which can help to reduce heartburn. By drinking aloe, it can help to naturally reduce heartburn. Peppermint oil has also been found to help relieve the burning feeling of heartburn. It protects the esophageal lining from the acid. By lining the esophagus, it counteracts the acid from the stomach, helping to relieve heartburn.

Insect Repellent

Getting tired of pesky mosquitoes? Here’s one convenient solution for you and your family! Insect repellents are any substances designed to ward off insects and avoid insect bites. There are different biting insects to protect from: mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, chiggers, and biting fleas. By definition, insect repellents are pesticides, because pesticides are anything that repels and destroys pests. However, there is a misconception that pesticides are only made for killing insects.

In contrast, repellents work by making one look less attractive to pests. These repellents are usually applied on the skin, or on any other surface where mosquitoes and insects normally land. They can be made from natural ingredients or from chemically made ones. Common repellents include essential oils like lemon eucalyptus, catnip oil, citronella oil, and neem oil.

There are different types of insect repellents. There are clip on products with pads; there are lanterns that disperse the repellent; there are table top diffusers, candles, and even coils. There are insect repellents in the form of aerosols, sprays, and sticks, and various liquids like creams.

When choosing the best insect repellent to use, there are a few factors one should consider. One should consider the type of insect, the protection time the product offers, and the active ingredients in the product. One should also keep in mind the type of activity for which he’s going to require the usage of repellents.

By using natural insect repellent, one can protect from mosquito and insect bites and the various diseases that can come from them. There are a lot of deadly diseases that can be transmitted through mosquito bites. One of them is malaria, a disease that has killed over 660, 000 people in 2010 alone. Symptoms of malaria include fever and chills. Another disease is dengue fever, which infects as many as 400 million people yearly and is a leading cause of death in tropical countries. There is also yellow fever, which causes the liver to bleed severely.

Because there are different types of insect repellents, and they are made differently as well, some people might have experience adverse reactions to using repellents, particularly children. Children may suffer from rashes and other conditions having to do with skin irritations. Remember to avoid using repellents on open wounds and cuts, and avoid the areas of the mouth and the eyes. Or, you may also consider wearing insect repellent clothing, especially those with long sleeves.

Scabies & Headlice

What is scabies? Scabies rash, or the seven year itch, is an irritating and persistent itchy scratch due to a parasitic infection. This infectious skin infection is caused by a specific type of mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), this condition is categorized as water related disease. Like tinea and pyoderma, it is one of the three most common skin diseases prevalent in children.

Scabies first appears as small red lumps, which turns into rashes over time. Scabies then develops into full-blown itches that cause skin dryness and scaling.

Lubricants

Lubricants are substances that are applied to any surface to reduce friction. Lubricants are widely used in the mechanical industry, in cooking and baking, and even in medicine and health. In the same way, there are also lubricants that are used for sexual activities. These are called personal lubricants and are divided into three types: (1) water based lubricants, which are gentle on the skin but may dry out during use, (2) oil based lubricants, which can damage condoms and even cause them to slip off, and (3) silicone based lubricants, which lasts the longest.

ABOUT LUBRICANTS

There is a special type of lubricant called warming lubricants, which can be water based or honey based. As its name suggests, warming lubricants create a warming effect when applied on the skin. Another special type of lubricant are the cooling or tingling lubricants, which produce the aforementioned sensations. There are even edible lubricants, which are flavoured after various fruits like strawberries and cherries, enhancing oral contact.

Most lubricants can be applied to any body part, external and internal, and some lubricants even contain ingredients that can soothe the skin. Look for lubricants with aloe vera so you can pamper your skin, while you’re being pampered! Lubricants, ideally, should be non greasy and fragrance free for easier application.

USES OF LUBRICANTS

When it comes to usage, lubricants can be categorized into two: (1) vaginal lubricants, and (2) anal lubricants. Vaginal lubricants aim to reduce vaginal dryness, thereby making penetration easier and lessening the chances of intercourse being painful. Anal specific lubricants are often thicker than vaginal lubricants and can even be in gel form, because the anus doesn’t produce its own lubrication. Some anal specific lubricants contain small amounts of anaesthetic. Aside from these two, lubricants can also be applied on sex toys like dildos and beads.

Snoring

Snoring is a condition that happens when the air can’t flow freely through one’s nose and throat during sleep, producing a sound that can be soft, harsh, or hoarse. It is a fairly common occurrence, with as many as half of the adult population of the United States having experienced snoring at least once in their lives. However, snoring is more prevalent among men and those who are overweight. Although most people don’t think snoring is dangerous, it can actually be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. Furthermore, snoring can affect the quality of one’s own sleep and the sleep of those around him.

The major, primary reason behind snoring is an obstruction in the passages of the mouth and the nose. This obstruction can be caused a number of factors. Having an allergic reaction, a sinus infection, or a nasal problem can block the nasal airways. Alcohol consumption can cause the throat and tongue muscles to be too relaxed during sleep, also blocking the airway. Age naturally relaxes these muscles, which is why snoring is also common among the elderly. For overweight people, the fat gathered around the throat can cause bulky throat tissue, resulting in the blocked airway.

The way one snores is an indicator of the cause of snoring. If one snores and their mouth is closed, it is indicative of a problem with the tongue. If their mouth is open, it is indicative of a problem with the tissues in the tongue.

CAUSES OF SNORING

Obstructed air flow may be caused by allergies or sinus infections. These lead to blocked nasal airways. Additionally, the throat and tongue muscles might be too relaxed and the muscle tone poor. The most common reason for this is ageing and excessive alcohol intake. Swollen tonsils in children can also result to bulky throat tissue which leads to snoring.


HOW TO STOP SNORING

The main treatment for snoring is to clear the air passageways using nose drops like Asonor and Botanica. There are also nasal strips like Breath Right and Snoreeze. Most importantly, one should establish a regular sleep pattern, while avoiding the use of sleeping pills. One can also change his sleeping position.
