Preventing and Treating Swimmer’s Ear

Filed Under: Health Aids,Homeopathy at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Summer is the best time for swimming and playing in the water. A refreshing swimming pool or a swim in the ocean, river or lake may be one of the best moments of every summer season but it can also lead to not-so-enjoyable moments.

Otitis externa, popular known as swimmer’s ear, is an inflammation of the outer ear and ear canal. Along with otitis media, external otitis is one of the two human conditions commonly called earache. These earaches are the result of an inflammation of the skin of the ear canal, which sometimes can be secondary to dermatitis (eczema) only, with no microbial infection, or it can be caused by active bacterial or fungal infection. In either case, but more often with infection, the ear canal skin swells and may become painful or tender to touch.

Preventing and treating swimmer’s ear is easy and can be done in many different ways. Avoid inserting anything into the ear canal. For example, use of cotton buds or swabs is the most common event leading to acute otitis externa. Most normal ear canals have a self-cleaning and self-drying mechanism, the latter by simple evaporation.

Ear drops may be used and you may want to try homeopathic ear drops, which are often used for earaches.  Ear relief ear drops help clear water trapped in the ear and the homeopathic ingredients help stimulate the body’s natural ability to soothe the ear, decrease the ear’s sensitivity to external factors such as water, cold, and drafts, reduce the clogged sensation in the ear, and return the ear to a water-free and comfortable condition.

Earplugs are also helpful but make sure to get good quality products. Hard and poorly fitting ear plugs can scratch the ear canal skin. It’s highly recommended that you use disposable ear plugs to avoid contaminating the ear canal.

Battling Spring Allergies

Filed Under: Health Aids at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Spring may be the most common time of the year for seasonal allergies for many people. Allergens are present all year round with tree pollen in the spring, grass pollen in the summer and weed pollen in the fall. However, it seems like most people suffer from allergies primarily in the spring months.

The spring pollen season has started and common symptoms are affecting people across the country. The immune system response to allergens is often felt in the form of congested, itchy, sneeze nose as well as watery, itchy eyes. You don’t have to wait until the summer to take action as there are many ways to prevent or lessen your reaction to spring allergens.

Natural supplements can be very helpful for seasonal allergies. One of the most popular products is quercetin, a well-known supplement proven to relieve allergy-induced runny nose, watery eyes, hives, and swelling. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, quercetin acts as an antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory, and in test tubes, it “prevents immune cells from releasing histamines, chemicals that cause allergic reactions.”

If quercetin doesn’t work for you, try one of the many allergies formulas containing a mix of natural ingredients. Most products contain a blend of vitamins and herbal supplements that can be very effective to battle allergies. Vitamin C can also be helpful as it is a natural antihistamine, but it’s since it is a very gentle form, you need to take 500-1000 mg, three times a day to reduce symptoms. Other supplements such as cayenne pepper, as well as homeopathic remedies complete the list of natural ways to fight off allergies this spring.

What’s New? Wiley’s Finest

Filed Under: Health Aids,Supplements at 10:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin continues to introduce top quality products to our customers. Our latest addition is a premium brand of fish oil supplements: Wiley’s Finest.

Wiley’s Finest offers a world-class selection of Omega-3 fish oils products made from certified sustainable, concentrated Wild Alaskan fish oil. Each and every product carries the Wiley Family signature to ensure that it comes from a responsible, sustainable fish source and provides the effective nutrition that your body needs.

The majority of fish oil supplements sold in the U.S. are produced from Peruvian Anchovy Oil, caught in South America. The entire catch is ground up and rendered into oil and fishmeal, which is then fed to farmed salmon, and the oils are used for paints, lubricants, leather tanning, or dietary supplements. There are very few Omega-3 ingredient manufacturers located in the United States. Most “Made in USA” brands are only encapsulated into softgels and bottled in the U.S. but the purification and concentration is not done in American soil.

Wiley’s Finest fish oils are a 100% U.S. domestic supplied product caught by American fisherman in the wild waters of Alaska’s Bering Sea. The oil is then shipped to a family owned and operated NSF certified for dietary supplement FDA GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices) manufacturing plant in Ohio where it is concentrated and purified into the finest high purity fish oil, encapsulated and bottled by trusted partners, and then delivered to you as the freshest, finest Omega-3 supplements.

No Pain, No Problems

Filed Under: Exercise and Fitness,Health Aids at 9:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A New Year has just begun and you have started a new workout. That’s great news and so far, so good. You have been exercising according to schedule and have not missed a single day, perfect! But many people face that “day” when you feel really tired, you have muscle pain, your whole body is sore, and the last thing your want to do is exercising. This is often a problem for many people trying to change into an active lifestyle, but you don’t have to skip or quit your fitness program just because of that.

Pain and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) are quite common issues for people who exercise, particularly to the ones just starting or getting back to physical activities. Exercising is excellent for your health but many activities can be very harsh on your muscles and joints. Running is one of the best ways to get or stay in shape but it can really cause some soreness on legs, knees, and ankles. Luckily, you can find a variety of efficient, low cost pain relief products that can provide quick relief and get you back to your workout in short time. If you feel pain or soreness, start treatment as soon as possible. Hot and cold packs are also a great way to treat these minor injuries. Some products can provide hours of relief from pain and inflammation without any discomfort or skin irritation. You may be surprised how efficient this simple treatment can be.

Prevention is also really important. Wearing protective braces can be helpful as it may help an individual to stay active by enhancing the position and movement of the joints and reducing overall pain. For example, knee braces can support or align the knee and can prevent issues from simple soreness to more serious joint problems. Ankle braces can do just the same and are an excellent way to prevent sprains.

Shower Gel Advantages

Filed Under: Health Aids,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

It’s a fact: old timers don’t like it. Many people prefer the good old bar soap when it comes to shower products but you can’t deny the advantages of shower gel over the traditional bar soap.

Shower gels are usually more sanitary and that’s perhaps the main reason many people are switching from bars to gels. Bars were first designed over a hundred years ago and technology has helped to create a product that can reduce the contamination on its surface. Gels are packaged in such a way that it cannot be penetrated, delivering a pure product to your skin.

Shower gels offer better formulations and a variety of natural products contain potent essential oils, fragrances and vitamins. Bars soaps may have some of the same ingredients but the gel form is proven to be the best way of deliver. In addition, many brands have created unique aromatherapeutic shower gels, which contain special, floral and effervescent compounds that cannot be packed into soaps.

Lastly, shower gels can drastically reduce waste when compared to bar soaps and are one of the best ways to make some savings in your personal care products budget. Soap users often lose part of the soaps as the wearing process isn’t always even due to moisture or when left in a wet soap-dish. Shower gels do not present this common and annoying problem as you are always able to avoid waste using the entire product out of tubes or containers, which are immune to moisture issues.

Lucky Vitamin Presents: Vitamin Squeeze

Filed Under: Health Aids,Vitamins and Minerals at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is proud to introduce a revolutionary line of water enhancer products: Vitamin Squeeze.

Vitamin Squeeze offers the perfect product whether you are on the go, or need a pick-me-up before a workout. Vitamin Squeeze is a zero calorie, zero carb, and zero sugar line of flavored water enhancers, designed in a variety of flavors where you control the flavor and nutrients.

Vitamin Squeeze keeps your body hydrated with the proper nutrients and minerals to get you through the day. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires a combination of eating healthy, exercising, drinking plenty of water and taking your vitamins. However, some vitamins do not stay in our system. For example, vitamins C and B are water-soluble and our kidneys excrete these vitamins rapidly. To support our immune systems we need to replenish vitamins as often as we hydrate.

Vitamin Squeeze water enhancers were created to satisfy research and support healthy living, through hydration. A concentrated, flavorful vitamin product in an easy to use squeeze bottle is a perfect fit to every lifestyle. Vitamin Squeeze is the first water enhancer loaded with antioxidants, essential vitamins, electrolytes and minerals to replenish your body while you hydrate.

Vitamin Squeeze comes in an easy-to-use, mess-free squeezable on-the-go bottle. Choose from eight succulent, customizable fruity flavors among three assorted varieties, multi-vitamin Acai Grape Pomegranate, Lemonade, Fruit Punch and Strawberry Watermelon, multi vitamin Energy Black Cherry, Blueberry Pomegranate Acai and Blood Orange, and multi vitamin Weight Control Pink Grapefruit.


Try Castor Oil!

Filed Under: Health Aids,Personal Care at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Castor oil is known for its multiple medicinal uses. This pale yellow liquid is extracted from castor seeds (Ricinus Communis) and contains anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. With mild odor and taste, this unique vegetable oil has been used both internally and externally for thousands of years due to its various wonderful health benefits. It is believed that most of castor oil’s benefits are derived from its high concentration of unsaturated fatty acids.

Castor oil has been used as a laxative for years and is categorized as generally recognized as safe and effective (GRASE) by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Studies have also shown that castor oil can help enhance the immune system. Additionally, castor oil is considered a great remedy to treat a variety of health conditions including sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, hair loss, pain from arthritis and rheumatism.

In addition, castor oil is used in a number of skin care products as this natural emollient has the ability to penetrate from the surface layers and deep into the skin thanks to its low molecular weight, making the skin softer and more beautiful. Castor oil products can significantly improve skin conditions such as burns, sunburns, skin disorders, skin cuts, and abrasions. It also improves acne-healing abilities. The effects of externally applied castor oil can be enhanced through the use of a piece of wool flannel saturated with the oil and applied to the body, allowing better penetration in a specific area. Dry heat may be applied to enhance results.

Sunburn? Calendula is the Answer!

Filed Under: Health Aids,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Sun exposure should be classified in three important stages: preventing, maintaining, and healing. Applying sun protection before you get sun exposure is the best way of preventing sunburn. Reapplying sun care products during your exposure is the best way of maintaining protection. Treating sunburn as soon as possible is the best way of healing your skin from sunburns.

Sunburn may significantly increase the risk of developing skin cancer and treating it quickly and with healing ingredients is important to help reduce the skin damage. Moisturizing the burned area without pulling the skin off is essential as the dead skin cells cannot protect you from the sun. Sunburn relief products can soothe your red and irritated skin. Aloe Vera is a well-known ingredient for sunburn treatment but calendula can be just as efficient.

Calendula is one of the best natural products to treat sunburn as the antioxidant-rich calendula flower has the ability to nourish and soothe sun damaged skin. Also known as marigold, calendula (calendula officinalis) is a common garden plant throughout North America and Europe. Many herbalists have nicknamed calendula the “flower of the sun” and this beautiful looking plant is considered one of nature’s most healing herbs.

The golden-orange flowers of calendula have been used as medicine for centuries. The petals and pollen contain triterpenoid esters, which works as an anti-inflammatory, and the carotenoids flavoxanthin and auroxanthin, both antioxidants. The leaves and stems contain lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene. Plant extracts are also widely used by cosmetics, presumably due to presence of compounds such as saponins, resins and essential oils.

Safe to use, calendula cream is a natural soothing cream for dry skin, sensitive skin and over-exposed skin. Calendula has been used to treat skin diseases such as eczema, poison ivy and poison oak dermatitis, as well as minor burns, bruises, diaper rash, and wound healing.

Acupressure Wrist Bands

Filed Under: Health Aids at 11:28 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure was developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. This therapy may be self-administered or conducted by another person using fingers, thumbs, elbows, or feet to apply pressure to a specific point(s) to provide comfort and alleviate a symptom(s).

Acupressure wristbands have been found effective in reducing nausea from seasickness, motion sickness, and pregnancy induced morning sickness. There are many studies looking at the effectiveness of these products. One study found that acupressure wristbands were also an effective adjuvant therapy to help men & women with breast cancer relieve chemotherapy-induced nausea. The results showed that the patients in the acupressure group experienced less nausea on the day of treatment compared to controls.

Another interesting use for the acupressure wristbands include migraine induced nausea. This study found acupressure wristbands effective at minimizing the nausea associated with migraines.

Acupressure wristbands are worn on a specific point. The Acupuncture point Pericardium 6 (Neiguan) is located on the flexor surface of the forearm, 2 cun above the transverse crease of the wrist. In acupuncture it is considered the anti-nausea point because it suppresses rebellious qi and stops vomiting.  Although some of the results may vary, consider trying for yourself to see if they work for you.

LympheDIVAS: Medically Correct Fashion For Lymphedema

Filed Under: Health Aids at 9:30 am | By: Kim McCorkell, Senior Editor

It all began in Philadelphia. Two young friends and breast cancer survivors developed lymphedema, a side effect from breast cancer treatment that can cause permanent swelling in the arms. One of the most effective ways to manage swelling recommended to these young women was to use compression armsleeves and gauntlets.

With much research, Rachel and Robin consistently found compression armsleeves to be hot, bandage-like, heavy and rough. Taking matters into their own arms, they met with a fashion designer to help create their own stylish – and medically correct – compression armsleeves. As a result, LympheDIVAs was born.

LympheDIVAs’ mission is to create “medically correct and fashionable compression apparel for the savvy and stylish breast cancer survivor with lymphedema which will inspire her to feel beautiful, strong, and confident.” One of their core desires is to always bring the latest patterns to their customers, while improving the lives of those managing lymphedema.

Other features of the LympheDIVAs garments include:

  • Moisture-Wicking   Pulls sweat away from the body and is fast drying!
  • Aloe Vera   Unscented aloe vera moisturizing micro-capsules are added for softness and skin protection.
  • 360º Stretch  Knit with 360º stretch, which allows the garments to stretch as your arm bends and flexes, and prevents binding at the elbow.
  • Fine Knit   Produces a smooth surface, lightweight, and replicating a ‘second skin.’
  • Graduated Compression   Available in compression Class 1 (20-30mmHg) and Class 2 (30-40mmHg).
  • Diva Diamond Band   A latex-free, silicone-free gripper applied directly to the inside top cuff of the sleeve. The Diva Diamond Band will keep your garment in place and your skin less irritated.
  • Made in the USA   All garments are knit in North Carolina. They are printed, pressed and shipped from Massachusetts.

Do you know anyone managing lymphedema? LympheDIVAs garments can provide a stylish and medically correct alternative to most compression armsleeves. Check out all the styles carries to choose from!

Neti pots were a tremendous hot-selling item a couple years ago. This weird but efficient product was featured by Dr. Oz on the Oprah Winfrey Show and sales skyrocketed after it. Today, sales are back to normal but one should not forget how efficient this product can be to cleanse the sinus passages, wash the nasal cavity, and flush out excess mucus and debris from the nose.

Generally used to eliminate sinus infections, neti pot products can also be a great, inexpensive way to relieve seasonal allergies, perfect for this time of the year.

Neti pots are very easy to use.  Use warm water, not hot, not cold, and fill it with the saline solution into your neti pot. Then, lean forward and turn your head sideways. The small spout is meant to be inserted into the upper nostril to begin the draining process. Raise the pot gradually so the saline solution has flowed through, exhale through your nose to clear the nasal passages. Repeat the steps with the other nostril. Demonstrations and instructions are helpful to make your attempt more comfortable. You should also wash your neti pot after each use. This practice is generally safe with no significant side effects.

How To Make A Castor Oil Pack

Filed Under: Health Aids,Health Concerns & Ailments at 10:30 am | By: Jeremy Michael, Contributing Author

Castor oil, or ricinus communis, has been used throughout the ages as a natural therapy. Castor oil applied topically in the form of “packs” is a popular way to aid in decreasing inflammation throughout the body, especially in the abdominal area. It has also been used to improve elimination of toxins and increase circulation especially in the lymphatic and circulatory system.

Castor oil can be used to reduce the pain and discomfort of endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts and other inflammatory conditions of the abdominal or pelvic regions. A castor oil pack may also be applied to the liver region of the abdomen during a cleanse, or when a person has inflammation/hepatitis.

How To Make A Castor Oil Pack:

Fold a piece of flannel or wool cloth into 2-4 layers, or a suitable size to cover recommended body area. Saturate the pack in castor oil. Cover the pack in plastic to prevent oil from ruining your clothes and linen, and apply it to the area of the body you wish to treat. Place a heating pad on top of the pack and turn the heating pad on medium heat, high if tolerable.  The treatment should continue for 45 minutes. Longer treatments are not harmful, though it is not advisable to fall asleep with the heating pad on. To complete your treatment, remove the castor oil pack and cleanse your skin with a solution of 1-teaspoon baking soda to 1 pint of water. Regular soap may also be used.  The pack can be stored in a container in the refrigerator and be reused 20-25 times. After that time it should be washed or dry-cleaned. Your clinician will recommend the frequency of use.

Although castor oil packs are generally considered safe, there is some contraindication for use. These include using heat with uterine growths, bleeding, pregnancy, ulcers or while menstruating. Always check with your physician before treating yourself.
