Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 Heavy metals include metals such as lead, mercury, boron, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic, antimony, cobalt, and lithium. Only a few such heavy metals have been researched in connection to reproductive function. People are continually exposed to metals in the environment. Medical tests can detect metals often, but this is to be expected and alone is not evidence that a person is poisoned. Metal screening tests should not be used unless there is reason to believe that a person has had excessive exposure to metals. People should seek medical testing for poisoning only if they are concerned for a particular reason, and physicians should consider a patient's history and physical examination before conducting tests to detect metals. An option for treatment of metal poisoning may be chelation therapy, which is a technique which involves the administration of chelation agents to remove metals from the body. Chelating agents are molecules that have multiple electron-donating groups, which can form stable coordination complexes with metal ions. Complexation prevents the metal ions from reacting with molecules in the body, and enable them to be dissolved in blood and eliminated in urine. It should only be used in people who have a diagnosis of metal intoxication. Chelation therapy is administered under very careful medical supervision due to various inherent risks. When the therapy is administered properly, the chelation drugs have significant side effects. Chelation administered inappropriately can cause neurodevelopmental toxicity, increase risk of developing cancer, and cause death; chelation also removes essential metal elements and requires measures to prevent their loss. * Symptoms * dark circles under the eyes * depression * digestive problems * extreme fatigue * alcohol intolerance * anxious and irritable * insomnia * loss of memory and forgetfulness * low body temperature * chronic unexplained pain * coated tongue

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 There are a number of different bacteria associated with bacterial gastroenteritis. Yersinia is found in pork, staphylococcus can be found in dairy products and meat, shigella is linked with water that is found in swimming pools, and salmonella is found in meat and dairy. Meat and poultry can also contain bacterium called campylobacter. E. coli is a bacterium associated with ground beef and salads. Essentially, we can blame bacterial gastroenteritis causes on improper handling of food (contamination), improper storage of food items, and meats that are not cooked thoroughly. In the year 2000, an outbreak of E. coli in the water supply of Walkerton, a small town in Ontario, Canada, lead to seven deaths and 2,300 illnesses. Numerous bacteria can cause gastroenteritis, including: Yersinia, found in pork staphylococcus, found in dairy products, meat, and eggs shigella, found in water (often swimming pools) salmonella, found in meat, dairy products, and eggs campylobacter, found in meat and poultry E. coli, found in ground beef and salads Bacterial gastroenteritis outbreaks can happen when restaurants serve contaminated food to many people. An outbreak can also trigger recalls of produce and other foods. Bacterial gastroenteritis can be easily transmitted from person to person if someone carries the bacteria on their hands. Every time a person infected with these bacteria touches food, objects, or other people, they risk spreading the infection to others. You can even cause the infection to get into your own body if you touch your eyes, mouth, or other open parts of your body with infected hands. You’re especially at risk for these infections if you travel a lot or live in a crowded area. Washing your hands often and using hand sanitizer with more than 60 percent alcohol can help you avoid catching infections from the people around you.

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 Antibiotics are the main course of treatment for this condition. They’re usually taken for four to six weeks. However, because the infection can return, you may need to take antibiotics for 12 weeks or longer. Your doctor will schedule a follow-up exam once you’ve finished treatment to ensure that the infection is completely gone. It may take six months to a year for symptoms to go away completely. In the meantime, certain home remedies may be able to ease your symptoms. Home remedies include: * warm baths * drinking 64 to 128 ounces of water per day * using stool softeners to avoid constipation * avoiding alcohol, caffeine, citrus juices, and hot and spicy food * medications to treat pain You may need additional treatment in the following rare cases: * If you’re unable to urinate, a healthcare provider will insert a tube called a catheter to empty your bladder. * If you have an abscess, your doctor will drain it. * If you develop sepsis, you’ll get intensive antibiotic therapy and you’ll need to stay in the hospital for treatment. * If you have stones, or mineral deposits, in your prostate, your doctor may need to remove your prostate. This is very rare.

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 Alcoholic liver disease is the result of drinking alcohol excessively. This condition is in direct correlation to the amount of alcohol you drink; your blood is not able to break down the alcohol properly, and it affects your liver. This can also be a hereditary condition because genes that are passed down from your parents may increase your chances of becoming an alcoholic. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is considered the most common liver disorder in the Western world. It’s recognized as one of the most common forms of chronic liver disease and is among the most common forms of chronic liver disease across the globe. NAFLD is most likely to happen in people who are overweight and middle-aged, but recently there are more and more cases of children with NAFLD because it is a result of the standard American diet. People with NAFLD often have high cholesterol and diabetes as well. Typically, this condition is linked to malnutrition, medications, inherited liver disease, fast weight loss and too much bacteria in the small intestine. There are three types of NAFLD: Nonalcoholic fatty liver is when fat builds up in the liver, but it won’t necessarily hurt you. This means that it’s causing excess liver fat, but there are no complications, which is common. According to a study conducted at the University of Sydney at Westmead Hospital in Australia, NAFLD is present in 17 percent to 33 percent of Americans. This growing percentage parallels the frequency of obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis happens to a small number of people with fatty liver. The fat causes inflammation in the liver, and this can impair the liver’s ability to function. This can also lead to cirrhosis, or the scarring of the liver. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease-associated cirrhosis is when liver inflammation leads to the scarring of the liver tissue, making the liver heavier

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 For many men, they don't realize the frequent urge to urinate and the sometimes burning sensation ìs actually a symptom of an enlarged prostate. So, they put the symptoms off until ìt becomes urgent and then usually decide to seek medical care. It's important when there ìs any change ìn the normal day-to-day function of your body to get an examination by your primary care physician to ascertain why the change ìn your prostate ìs occurring. It's not unusual for a man aged 45 and above to experience an enlarged prostate on occasion. It ìs however, unusual to have ongoing symptoms that do not diminish or grow worse. There are a number of treatments that can be undertaken for an enlarged prostate. Some of these can be managed at home. Studies have shown that men who eat diets low ìn milk and dairy products have a lower risk of prostate problems than men who eat a diet high ìn dairy based foods. The problem doesn't seem to be wìth the milk itself but rather the high value of calcium that can aggravate the prostate. There are two main trace elements that are essential to good prostate health. These are, selenium found ìn Brazil nuts and pumpkin seeds whìch have long been used as a folk remedy for prostate problems. It has been learned through research that pumpkin seeds are actually a good source of zinc whìch ìs an essential trace element for a healthy prostate gland. Make good choices ìn your diet and be advised that men wìth enlarged prostates should avoid the consumption of alcohol. Many men find that warm baths or showers relax a swollen prostate and bring temporary relief. A Mayo Clinic once estimated that over half of the American public ìs dehydrated and ìf you're not drinking at least sìx 8-oz glasses of water a day, you're among those people. Also, include cranberry juice as a daily drink because the acidity ìs very beneficial ìn prohibiting the growth of bacteria. If you're having prostate problems

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 Keeping nails trimmed and filed can help to reduce the amount of fungus in the nails and is highly recommended. A podiatrist or dermatologist may shave the top layer of the nail off or even remove part of the nail. Creams and other topical medications have traditionally been less effective against nail fungus than oral medications. This is because nails are too hard for external applications to penetrate. Prescription topical medications for fungal nails include the following: Ciclopirox (Penlac) topical solution 8% is a medical nail lacquer that has been approved to treat finger or toenail fungus that does not involve the white portion of the nail (lunula) in people with normal immune systems. It only works about 7% of the time. The medication is applied to affected nails once daily for up to one year. The lacquer must be wiped clean with alcohol once a week. There is some evidence that using an antifungal nail lacquer containing amorolfine can prevent reinfection after a cure, with a success rate of about 70%. However, this drug is currently unavailable in the United States. Efinaconazole (Jublia) is a medication approved in 2014. It is a topical (applied to the skin) antifungal used for the local treatment of toenail fungus due to two most common fungal species affecting nails (Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes). Once-daily application is required for 48 weeks. Tavaborole (Kerydin) is another new medication that is indicated for onychomycosis of the toenails. This medicine has the same indication as efinaconazole. It also requires application once daily for 48 weeks. Oral antifungal therapy works about 50%-75% of the time, depending on the medication. It can take nine to 12 months to see if it has worked or not, because that is how long it takes for the nail to grow out. Even when therapy works, the fungus may come back about 20%-50% of the time.

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 If the fat in your liver makes up 5–10 percent of the organ’s weight, then you are diagnosed with fatty liver disease. There are two main types of fatty liver disease, alcoholic liver disease and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Acute fatty liver of pregnancy is another rare condition that happens when fat builds up in the liver of pregnant women. One of the hardest-working organs in the body, the liver works tirelessly to detoxify our blood, to produce the bile needed to digest fat, to break down hormones, and to store essential vitamins, minerals and iron. This is why it’s so important to take care of our livers or practice a liver cleanse — as when the liver is not functioning optimally, we cannot digest our food properly, especially fats. It’s the liver’s responsibility to process nutrients absorbed by the intestines so they’re more efficiently absorbed. The liver also regulates blood composition to balance protein, fat and sugar. Finally, it removes toxins from the blood, and breaks down both alcohol and medications. For people with fatty liver disease, the handling of fat by liver cells is disturbed. Increased amounts of fat are removed from the blood and produced by liver cells, and not enough is disposed of or exported by the cells. As a result of this, fat accumulates in the liver. There is an imbalance between the uptake of fat and its oxidation and export. Today, we’re faced with so many environmental toxins occurring in our homes, places of work and in our food supply, so it’s essential for our general health and well-being to keep our livers functioning properly.

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 The liver is an organ about the size of a football that sits just under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen. The liver is essential for digesting food and ridding your body of toxic substances. Liver disease can be inherited (genetic) or caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Obesity is also associated with liver damage. Over time, damage to the liver results in scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to liver failure, a life-threatening condition. Signs and symptoms of liver disease include: * Skin and eyes that appear yellowish (jaundice) * Abdominal pain and swelling * Swelling in the legs and ankles * Itchy skin * Dark urine color * Pale stool color, or bloody or tar-colored stool * Chronic fatigue * Nausea or vomiting * Loss of appetite * Tendency to bruise easily * When to see a doctor Make an appointment with your doctor if you have any persistent signs or symptoms that worry you. Seek immediate medical attention if you have abdominal pain that is so severe that you can't stay still.

vymarex com What causes erectile dysfunction? How does an erection happen? The veins that allow blood to leave the penis are only so wide. During an erection, the blood vessels that let blood into the penis relax and widen (dilate). This lets more blood in – more than can escape – which causes the sponge-like tissues of the penis to swell and harden. Complex biological mechanisms are involved in allowing these blood vessels to relax and redirect blood to the penis. Your thoughts and senses (touch, hearing, smell and sight) influence a part of the brain that can trigger an erection. In addition, hormones and other substances determine how your nerves transmit ‘sexual signals’ and how blood vessels respond to the received signals. Arousing thoughts or nervous mechanisms (eg, touch reflexes) are two ways an erection is initiated. What causes an erection to fail? Erectile dysfunction occurs when sexual stimulation or arousal (you may still ‘have the urge’) does not result in sufficient blood flow to the penis. For most men there is a physical or medical reason for this, for others the problem is related to thoughts or emotions. Even when there is an initial physical reason, a man may still feel anxious about having sex, and this can compound the problem. Physical & medical reasons Recent illness, such as a heart attack, or injury to the brain or spinal cord, can be a cause. Many other medical conditions can also lead to nerve damage or reduced blood supply to the penis – the most common of these is diabetes (men with diabetes are much more likely to have problems with erections). Other factors that can reduce blood flow to the penis include: excess alcohol smoking use of social drugs such as marijuana, cocaine narrowing of blood vessels caused by a high blood cholesterol level medications - wide range such as in Table 1. Any concerns, discuss with your doctor for possible alternatives.
