postheadericon The Natural Treatment Of Ovarian Cysts Eating The Right Foods

Thousands of women suffer agonising pains leading up to and during their menstrual cycle and in many cases this can be attributed to ovarian cysts. A lot of cysts dissolve away naturally but it is the ones that continue to grow that cause symptoms such as swelling in the abdomen, heavy bleeding and nausea. Traditionally treatment has been by medication or, in the worse case scenario surgery, and even then, the cysts often return. Well the good news is that natural treatment of ovarian cysts can and does work by shrinking the fluid filled sacs and preventing them from returning.

The food we eat determines the ph levels of our blood and research shows that an acidic blood stream creates an atmosphere inside our bodies that cancers and other diseases can thrive in, whereas a blood stream that is more alkaline provides a much healthier refuge. So it is important to cut back on the amount of sugar and processed foods that we consume, so as not to create an atmosphere that is conducive for ovarian cysts to form.

So the low down is that by eating less sugar we are less likely to suffer unhealthy insulin levels which can trigger the growth of ovarian cysts and at the same time we may well lose some weight, which isn’t normally a bad thing. Naturally it can be difficult to change your diet overnight but make a real effort to implement healthy changes to your regular meals. I am not suggesting that you become a vegetarian, but it is important to cut down on your meat intake and eat more fish and also to fill your plate with lots of healthy vegetables. Other foods that are vital to creating a good alkaline level are garlic, grains and most fresh fruit.

postheadericon Urine Color and Its Meaning in Health and in Disease

Normal urine is pale yellow or straw-yellow in color.
Urine may have a variety of other colors, however, including dark yellow, orange, pink, red, green, blue, brown and even black. These rainbow hues may be caused by dehydration, ingested foods and drinks, supplements, medications, injuries and illnesses.

Some scientists consider urochrome and urobilin to be the same chemical, while others believe that they are different substances and that both occur in urine. Urobilin is produced from the breakdown of hemoglobin, the red pigment which transports oxygen around the body in red blood cells.

The hemoglobin is released when old red blood cells are destroyed.
Dehydration causes less water to enter the urine, so it appears dark yellow. Urine is usually darkest when we get up in the morning, since we�ve spent the night without drinking. Dark yellow urine during the day indicates that we�re not drinking enough water and is likely to appear if we�ve been sweating heavily without replenishing our body�s water content.

postheadericon Disease of Starvation

Alcoholism and drug abuse are incredibly hard diseases to kill off, and they tend to spread from generation to generation, both through genetics and through behavior. In addition to this, addiction of any kind is inherent in dependent personalities and in hardcore control freaks. Addiction is based entirely upon fear. This means that, to some extent, addiction is based upon the mentality of starvation. Fear can exist anywhere, but it is a reactionary science, not one based upon carefully thought out logic. Fear brings out reactions of fear, and one of those is addiction.

Unfortunately, this disease of starvation feeds upon our most primal urges and sentiments. It feeds into what we believe that we will lose and it feeds upon how we will gain it back, even if we would never act that way under ordinary, non-fear-based circumstances. Fear can be transferred from individual to individual, especially if the first individual is highly influential in the mind of the second. The disease of starvation can rapidly spread from person to person, from idea to idea, until it taints and distorts everything around it. It is useful at this point to focus on preserving one’s own resources, and not to focus on someone else’s resources, intentions, or lack thereof.

Starvation excites high needs for survival within a human being. It builds hunger and weakens the ability fight or run away from danger. It pretty much puts a person at attention at all times, which is an unnatural state of being. If stress hormones are being activated at every moment of every day, then someone can find it very difficult to have or maintain peace. It is important to notice if you are involuntarily clenching any of your muscles, and why you are doing so. Diseases like drug abuse and alcoholism can build involuntary fear reactions in someone, to the point to where they often feel at risk, even when they are not. This can drive away perspective-enhancing relationships in their lives, and make them more susceptible to further paranoia and the inability recognize real danger when it arises.
