Natural Remedy for Arthritis

Arthritis is a group of painful and degenerative conditions marked by inflammation in the joints that causes stiffness and pain. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, gets worse with age and is caused by wear and tear over the years. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the immune system attacking the joints as if they were foreign tissues. Because of this, rheumatoid arthritis is classified as an autoimmune disease. Doctors traditionally treat arthritis with anti-inflammatory medications and painkillers. However, some medications cause side effects, and a natural approach to pain relief is becoming more popular. Remember to consult your doctor before trying these natural remedies.

We all suffer from acid reflux at some point in our lives. Until I adopted apaleo way of eating, I used to suffer from a bad case of acid reflux at least once a week. While that was certainly bad, I continue to have friends and family who suffer from acid reflux every single day. It’s just become a fact of life for them. But it doesn’t have to be.

Surprising causes of high blood pressure, simple strategies to manage hypertension By: Bel Marra

How healthy is your blood pressure? And exactly what causes high blood pressure, anyway? It rises with each and every heartbeat and then falls as your heart relaxes between beats. It can change from minute to minute with exercise, stress, sleep, even your posture. The important thing is you want to keep it in the healthy range: Less than 120/80 mm Hg – less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic – for adults age 20 and over. Most Americans, though, are reading closer to 140/90 or higher, which puts them in the high blood pressure range. That news is grim. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the proportion of Americans reporting they have high blood pressure rose nearly 10 percent from 2005 to 2009. High blood pressure, or hypertension, affects nearly one-third of Americans. And nearly half of those cases are out of control, health officials say. Furthermore, nearly one in three Americans has prehypertension – a condition which shows elevated blood…

Home remedies for low blood pressure (hypotension) By: Emily Lunardo |

We often talk about high blood pressure (hypertension) as it is a common ailment as we get older. Of course, rising blood pressure is a real health concern as it can contribute to many health complications. But low blood pressure, while discussed far less often, is also an important health issue that can have an impact on your well-being. Symptoms of low blood pressure include fatigue, lightheadedness, dizziness, nausea, clammy skin, loss of consciousness, and blurry vision. With low blood pressure (hypotension), not enough blood is reaching the heart, brain, and other important organs. Many of us may feel a sudden drop in blood pressure as we move from lying or sitting to an upright position—known as postural hypotension—but if you experience symptoms of low blood pressure without changing positions, then your doctor may diagnose you with hypotension. The good news is, home remedies for low blood pressure can help you manage the condition. Home remedies for low blood pressureEat smal…
