Edema is a medical condition wherein the body suffers from certain fluid buildup. This buildup occurs due to a variety of medical conditions. Normally, this occurs when there is too much water being dumped that the lymphatic system, the one responsible for the draining of excess water, becomes unable to cope up with the volume of water that needs to be drained. Another reason is that the lymphatic system or part of it is no longer functioning properly. When any of these two happens, edema or fluid buildup occurs. To stop such buildup, you need to buy Lasix as treatment. Read more…
So, I’m off to see a naturopath. I’m still trying to figure out the fertility thing, and I’d like to learn more about this healing method of treatment. Diet is the first thing a naturopath evaluates (I think) – so it should be interesting to hear what she thinks of my eating habits. My no coffee, no alcohol, and increased intake of fruits and vegetables seems to be going okay (sure, there’s hiccups along the way, but not too many). But the no sugar plan? That’s tough. I’m off it, then back on it. Off. On. Off. On. OffOnOffOnOffOnOffOn. Lately, in order to satisfy my cravings, I’ve been snacking on a little sweet treat in the late afternoons (mostly chocolate). Sugar depresses the immune system drastically. And after reading up on the potential harm sugar can do to my body (feed cancer cells, contribute to autoimmune diseases, weaken eyesight, and so on) I actually felt fear rising inside me. But while fear can be a strong motivator, what really moves me into action is knowing how healthy and healed and clean I’ll be and feel when I eliminate sugar from my diet. I already know the next step. Instead of satisfying my craving with candy, I should switch to treats that have been sweetened with natural sugars, like maple syrup and raw honey. Okay . . . back to the kitchen to experiment with more recipes.
It’s not often I’m in a yoga class where the teacher gives a reading during closing. But those rare times when that has been the case — well, I’ve adored it. I love words. Language. Poetry. Here’s the quote my yoga teacher read the other day:
Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth
you owe me.
Look what happens to a love
like that – it lights the whole sky.

Well, for those who are truly suffering from hair loss, the hair products mentioned above will not be enough to help them with their hair problem, thus they will need extra help. Read more…
