The study isolated an ingredient called thymol, which is naturally found in the herb thyme. Treatment Although toenails fungi are usually treated with oral medication prescribed by a doctor, some people treat them with Vicks VapoRub. There is evidence proving that Vicks VapoRub can cure fungal toenails in some people. This is largely due to its ingredients, including menthol, camphor and eucalyptus oil.

What Causes Ridges in Finger and Toenails
What Causes Horizontal & vertical Ridges in Finger and Toenails Ridges in fingernails Vertical ridges sometimes appear along the length of the fingernails. Sometimes marks, discoloration or pits or grooves on a fingernail, such as those that run from side to side (known as Beau's lines), can be an indication of a nail injury or a health problem. However, in the case of vertical ridges, there is normally no reason to be concerned. These ridges look and feel like raised lines, and they run from the cuticle at the base of the fingernail to the tip. These ridges are not usually a sign of injury or a health problem but are a harmless result of ageing. They often become more prominent or numerous as you get older. However, if the vertical ridges are accompanied by brittle nails, with jagged edges or splitting, you may have a condition known as onychorrhexis, which may be linked to a skin-related medical condition such as lichen planus, a type of non-infectious skin rash, or certain other health conditions such as anaemia or an underactive thyroid gland. Also, if the ridges run horizontally from side to side, they may indicate a health problem. So you should seek medical advice

Over the counter topical treatments often don’t reach down into the nail bed where fungus thrives, but anti-fungal pills have long lists of risky side effects. Fortunately, the cure for nail fungus might be as close as your pantry. Both apple cider vinegar and baking soda have a long history of use in folk medicine and home remedies. A lot of pathogens– fungi included– are only adapted to surviving within a narrow range of pH. Vinegar is very acidic, while baking soda is very basic. This helps disrupt the pH of the pathogen’s environment, leading to healthier, clearer nails. In order to take advantage of this effect, all you need are a basin large enough for your feet, warm water, baking soda, and several cups of apple cider vinegar.

How To Use Hydrogen Peroxide for Mouthwash
How To Use Hydrogen Peroxide for Mouthwash Using hydrogen peroxide as mouthwash is simple: just swish 1% to 3% hydrogen peroxide around in your mouth, then spit it out Like you'd do with any kind of mouthwash Why 1% to 3%? Well Some people feel that 3% is a bit strong to use as a mouthwash. You can try 3%, or water it down with some water. (Some 3% hydrogen peroxide with an equal amount of water added will give you 1.5% hydrogen peroxide.) Using hydrogen peroxide as mouthwash will kill bacteria and viruses in your mouth. However, it takes time for hydrogen peroxide to work, so this is not going to remove all the bacteria and viruses in your mouth – it will just lessen them. Using hydrogen peroxide as mouthwash can taste a bit weird. Also, any time hydrogen peroxide is killing germs, it will foam -- so there can be some foaming when you are using hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash. If you want to get at the bacteria in your gums, try it this way: brush your teeth, then floss between your teeth, and then swish with peroxide. This way any gunk is out of the way, and the peroxide can get in to the gums more easily. Swishing for a minute or longer will be more effective than a shorter swish. Another idea for getting peroxide in to your gums is Putting hydrogen peroxide into a Water Pik and then spraying the peroxide at your gums, as you usually would do with a Water Pik. Probably the best way of doing this is to spray a mixture of half water and half 3% peroxide. (The mixture will be 1.5% peroxide.) Three percent hydrogen peroxide will probably be too strong to spray into your gums. Just A word of warning Hydrogen peroxide can harm your gums if used too often, too long, or in too strong a solution. Here are some More ways to use peroxide for teeth, mouth, throat.... You can also try using hydrogen peroxide to brush your teeth - some people use a mixture of peroxide and baking soda. If that doesn’t appeal to you, you might like to soak your toothbrush in some 3% hydrogen peroxide. That will kill the bacteria and viruses in the bristles of your toothbrush, which will also, in a round-about way, make for fewer bacteria going into your mouth Gargling with hydrogen peroxide will get the hydrogen peroxide in contact with the back of your mouth and throat. The longer you gargle, the more time it has to kill germs. This won’t prevent all illnessness, but it’s a good idea to do this when colds and flus are around. Gargling with peroxide won’t kill all the germs in your throat, it will just lessen them. Peroxide takes time to work. But use some care, as peroxide can also be harmful if used to long or too often.

This step is simple and all you will need are rubber gloves and a plunger. Before doing anything, put on your rubber gloves. Next, you will need to plunge the water out of the toilet. It’s also good to know how to do this this if you ever need to know how to fix a clogged toilet. Start by plunging the toilet to push the water further down the pipes. To do this, take the plunger and seal the end of it around the hole at the bottom of the toilet bowl. Then push down on the plunger and pull up on the handle. Do this a few times to remove as much of the water as possible. Use a towel to soak up any remaining water. If you have’nt got a punger you culd you a plastic cup to scoop water out but this way its difficult to remove all the water Cleaning the rim of the toilet . because we all know what happens when you leave the rim of your toilet sitting for too long. Spray some vinegar on that rim and let it soak for a moment, then if you need to scrub, scrub; another suggestion is to soak paper towels around the rim and leave for a few hours or over night but scrubbing is best. Also allow to soak a sponge in vinegar for under the rim which is usually a hidden germ place. pour vinegar into toilet bowl To really clean the toilet bowl and remove unsightly bowl rings, fill it with the vinegar . Pour as much vinegar until the level reaches and covers up the stains in the bottom of the toilet bowl. You can pour a little extra until the level of the vinegar is slightly higher than the level of the stains at the bottom of the pan. About a half a gallon of vinegar should do the trick. Leave the vinegar to soak for a few hours. You may need to use the srubbing brush for stubborn stains if your toilet is really dirty. Spray the rest of the pan with vinegar between the rim and the vinegar that’s been poured into the toilet. Use a toilet brush to scrub away any remaining stains along the rim of the bowl or deep inside the bowl. The final step in cleaning a toilet bowl is a quick rubdown of the outsides of the toilet. There are some bacteria growing in places where you thought your personal waste would never end up. And I mean, all over. Spray down the entire toilet with your spray bottle of vinegar, allowing it to soak for a moment, and then give the whole toilet a good rubdown with some paper towels, or if you’re going to be really eco-friendly, a leftover rag. This should complete the process of cleaning a toilet with vinegar. All that’s left to do is to flush the toilet a few times to remove the vinegar once the vinegar has been left to stand for a few hours. Like I said you may need to do one final scrub for those stubborn stains. After that you can admire your gleaming toilet!

How to Remove Warts & Skin Tags at Home Using Hydrogen Peroxide
How to get rid of warts and skin tags using hydrogen peroxide Warts are raised bumps on your skin caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Warts have plagued humans for thousands of years — they have been discovered on 3,000-year-old mummies and were mentioned by Shakespeare. Although warts are generally not dangerous, they are ugly, potentially embarrassing, contagious, and they can be painful. Skin tags are small, brown or flesh-coloured growths that protrude from the surface of the skin, usually by a few millimetres. Often mistaken for warts, skin tags can appear anywhere on the body but are typically found in areas where skin repeatedly rubs against itself, such as the armpits, groin, eyelids and neck. Some skin tags grow over time and can very occasionally become as large as 5 centimetres. Although they may be unsightly, skin tags are always harmless. The obvious solution for both of these ailments is to have them removed by a professional dermatologist through either cryosurgery (freezing the wart until it comes off), electric needles, or lasers,  However there is an interesting alternative, one which you can try at hydrogen peroxide is a surprisingly effective option for warts and skin tags alike. All you need to do is dip a cotton ball into the product and apply it to your skin tag or wart, up to five times a day for a week or two. It's important to aim properly with this, because hydrogen peroxide can be painful and will definitely sting if you accidentally apply it to a spot on your skin instead. It is important to note that the type of hydrogen peroxide required here is 35 percent food grade product. If you use a too strong a grade of hydrogen peroxide it will damage your skin.
Top Ten Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar & Honey Morning Drink
HEALTH BENEFITS OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND RAW HONEY: Apple cider vinegar (ACV) and honey are two amazing natural substances. When you consume them in their unprocessed, raw forms, the health benefits are plentiful. If you put the two together, the results are even stronger. Raw sweet honey also makes the taste of the drink more pleasing. Raw honey also has been used for thousands of years as a health food as well as a sweetener.  Local honey is great, but make sure it is truly raw for this recipe to benefit from the enzymes present. Vinegar is said to have been discovered around 5000 BC, when unattended grape juice turned into wine and then vinegar. Originally used as a food preservative, vinegar’s medicinal uses soon came to light. Hippocrates used vinegar to manage wounds, while medical practitioners in the 1700s used it to treat everything from poison ivy and croup to stomach aches. Vinegar was even used to treat diabetes.1 Traditionally, vinegar is made through a long, slow fermentation process, leaving it rich in bioactive components, giving it potent antioxidant, antimicrobial, and many other beneficial properties. “Mother” of vinegar, a cobweb-like amino acid-based substance found in unprocessed, unfiltered vinegar, indicates your vinegar is of the best quality. Most manufacturers pasteurize and filter their vinegar to prevent the mother from forming, but the “murky” kind is best, especially if you’re planning to drink it. Health benefits of ACV and honey mix The traditional health benefits of this drink combination, especially on an empty stomach include: Digestion Improved digestive health, including help with constipation Weight loss aid PMS help Reduce inflammation -Better joint health and joint pain alleviation (good for arthritic pain) Relieve a sore throat Help with seasonal allergies Regulates stomach acid, relieving acid reflux Promotes clear skin Youthful appearance and better condition of the skin Remedy for bad breath Increases energy Reduced cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure Why is the combination of ACV & honey so successful? The benefits of the mixture can be explained by looking at their chemical properties and interactions with the body. Many experts believe that we become ill when our bodies turn overly acidic (pH below 7). Vinegar is naturally acidic, but when consumed, it turns alkaline. Honey, too, has a low pH, but raises the alkalinity of the body once eaten. The two substances are a perfect way to get rid of excessive acidity (resulting from stressful lifestyle and unhealthy foods and drinks) and building an internal environment with a protective pH. Our bodies function at their best and healthiest when the body’s pH is approximately 7.4, so slightly alkaline. How to make ACV & honey healing drink Make sure you get the ingredients that are unfiltered and in their natural forms. Honey and ACV that have not been processed, thus have maintained all their nutritional properties, appear cloudy. Also, check the label and go for ACV with the ‘mother of vinegar’, which can be seen as a pulp on the bottom of the bottle. Mix together: 1 teaspoon raw honey 1 teaspoon ACV (if you can tolerate the taste, increase the dosage to up to 1 tablespoon) 8 oz. warm water (1 glass)
How to Use Vicks Vaporub to Treat Cystic Acne
We’ve all heard of some pretty off the wall products when it comes to acne treatment…like toothpaste for example. But here’s something you probably haven’t thought about using and thats Vicks VapoRub. There are lots of health forums stating that’s vicks vapour rub actually works It must be noted though that Vicks certainly don’t market their product as an acne treatment The only testament you need regarding the effectiveness of VapoRub is that it’s still around 122 years after it was first formulated for being a decongestant, cough suppressant, joint pain reliever. It does work very well for all of the complaints listed above, as well as being a great acne treatment. While many of these treatments such as the myriad of creams, Clearasil, Neutrogena Proactiv worked for a short duration of time (or for milder cases of acne), none of them completely wiped away the boss of all pimples – cystic acne. Vicks VapoRub can work wonders on the bigger, more irritating blemishes and even scars. And for anyone who has dealt with even a single cystic pimple, you know how large, painful and embarrassing they can be. And on top of that? They usually last for weeks. After just two days of applying Vicks VapoRub can make a massive difference. The magic ingredients The active ingredients are simple and old-fashioned, as you’d expect. They include the following oils, which are all listed as cough suppressants and/or topical analgesics (for pain relief). Camphor Eucalyptus Oil Menthol Also included is petroleum jelly, to bind it all together. You’d think this stuff would block pores, but it doesn’t – the long chain molecules which make it so sticky mean the Vicks doesn’t enter your pores, it just sits like a protective layer on top. The other, inactive ingredients (which still play their part in calming acne) are cedarleaf oil, nutmeg oil, thymol and turpentine oil (?!). On their own, each of these ingredients are antibacterial and can be soothing to the skin. But here’s the beauty of Vicks Vaporub – for treating acne, the sum of these essential oils is greater than any of them individually. What I mean by this is that combined together in Vicks, they work incredibly well for killing acne, soothing inflammation + reducing redness In many cases vicks vaporub can work miracles, just apply it on acne before going to bed and when you wake up, acne is gone How to apply Vicks vaporub on acne 1. All you need is Vicks VapoRub and cotton 2. Dip the cotton into the jar and scoop out a tiny amount (just enough to cover the affected area) 3. Smear the ointment over the area (treat it as you would a topical acne medication)  By the way, don’t get it anywhere near your eyes, up your nose, in your ears or down your throat, otherwise much pain and suffering will result. But be careful when and how long you plan to apply Vicks because there are couple of ingredients in it that can be potentially dangerous if consumed or used for an extended period of time. Those ingredients are cedarleaf oil and nutmeg oil. Although both aid in aromatherapy, both are still classified as poisonous and have been linked to various side effects such as hallucinations, abdominal pain and seizures.

Frankincense is a very holy oil, You probably first heard of it at school when it was presented by the one of three wise kings to baby jesus as a gift. It’s been used for thousands of years during meditation and spiritual practices. Frankincense comes from incisions made into the bark of the small tree, where a natural gum/ resin is then produced and the oil is collected through steam distillation. What Is Frankincense Essential Oil Used For? Frankincense oil is used by either inhaling the oil or absorbing it through the skin, usually mixed with a carrier oil, such as an unscented lotion or jojoba oil. It’s believed that the oil transmits messages to the limbic system of the brain, which is known to influence the nervous system. A little bit of oil goes a long way; it should not be ingested in large quantities as it can be toxic. If you’re purchasing essential oils, avoid oils that say “fragrance oil” or “perfume oil” as these can be synthetic and don’t provide the desired health benefits. Instead, look for oils that say “pure essential oil” or “100% essential oil” for the highest quality essential oils. Let take alook at its benefits and uses- 1Fights Against Cancer Cells Many studies and researches have proven that frankincense oil has cancer-fighting properties. It has been known to effectively kill bladder cancer cells. Frankincense oil has been shown to help fight cells of specific types of cancer. (3) A 2012 study even found that a chemical compound found in frankincense called AKBA is successful at killing cancer cells that have become resistant to chemotherapy, which may make it a potential natural cancer treatment.The oil may also be used internally, aromatically, or even topically for treating different forms of cancer . 2 Decrease Stretch Marks and Wrinkles Frankincense essential oil has been shown to help minimize stretch marks, decrease the appearance of scars and help to reduce or slow the progression of wrinkles.

Scar, Wound, Stretch Mark or Acne Remedy Frankincense oil can help with wound healing and may decrease the appearance of scars. It may also help reduce the appearance of dark spots caused from acne blemishes, stretch marks, eczema and help with healing of surgical wounds. Mix two to three drops of oil with an unscented base oil or lotion and apply directly to skin. Be careful not to apply it to broken skin, but it’s fine for skin that’s in the process of healing. 6. Regeneration Of Skin considered to be one of the best Frankincense skin care benefit. Frankincense essential oil is a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and it even helps lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging. The oil can be used anywhere where the skin becomes saggy, such as the abdomen, jowls or under the eyes. 7.

Itchy skin Coconut oil soothes itchy skin, hybridizes and softens it. People who use coconut oil will not have problems related to dry skin. Rash Skin Rashes are very common occurrences. Fortunately, coconut oil helps in this case as well by softening the skin and reducing the intensity and consequences caused by the rash itself.

Start with a small quantity (a pea size) and apply around your eyes and face, and even your lips if they are dry and chapped. At first it tends to have a greasier consistency, but it quickly absorbs into the skin. Let it absorb into your skin for few minutes before applying your makeup. You can also use coconut oil instead of a body lotion to hydrate the rest of your body.

Fear of Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Dying
CLICK HERE http://www.positivepanicattacks.com/fearofanxietyandpanicattacks.html Can a panic attack hurt you? The most common fear in my experience is the fear of having a heart attack, fear of not being able to escape or the fear of dying. However what underlines all these fears is usually the fear of having a panic attack itself. This fear or thought usually occurs at the start of a panic attack and this gives the fear its power. This is the most important bit – NOBODY HAS EVER DIED OF A PANIC ATTACK. Your body is actually trying to save you rather than kill you. It’s sending all this adrenaline around your system to help you to run or fight. So with all this adrenaline your heart is not going to stop. However because we are not fighting or running away, the adrenaline has nowhere to go. That’s why we tremble, sweat, breathe fast and have heart palpitations. The feeling of dying is your mind playing tricks on you to try and protect you. It’s trying to fool you into believing that where you are is unsafe, and you need to remove yourself from the situation. It can be really difficult to think of the exact thoughts which are running through your mind when you’re having a panic attack, so it’s important to have a piece of paper with you and write down exactly what you’re thinking when you panic. (See Worksheets) Although you may think you know what you’re thinking, the actual terror thoughts might actually be something you’re not aware of. The panic reaction is a defence mechanism against a really dangerous situation such as being attacked in some way. When we develop all these phobias there isn’t actually any threat at all, but it feels exactly the same as if we were being attacked – TOTAL FEAR. This whole process makes the sufferer feel so scared inside that they often feel like they’re going to explode with fear. There is this overwhelming feeling that fear is going to consume them and that something awful is going to happen (of course it never does). This impending doom can lead to the person feeling they have all sorts of things wrong with them – Multiple sclerosis Heart attack Stroke Brain haemorrhage Brain tumour Heart condition Going crazy Cancer It’s a fact that everybody has to die sometimes. On average around 2000 people day every day in the UK with around 200,000 die in the world as a whole. You can die anywhere – on the lavatory, watching TV, singing in the shower, walking the dog. Statistically you are much more likely to die in your sleep but it’s not impossible that you would die during a panic attack. The point being that it would be only coincidence. If you want to know the biggest killer, its smoking. More people die off smoking related diseases than anything else! So acknowledge this fact and believe it NOBODY HAS EVER DIED OF A PANIC ATTACK A PANIC ATTACK WILL NOT KILL YOU, IT ONLY MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR DYING.

Amazing Hemp Seed Oil Benefits & Uses for Skin, Hair & Cancer
http://www.epicnaturalhealth.com/what-is-the-best-hemp-oil-to-buy/ what is the best hemp oil to buy Hemp is a tall, beautiful and gracious looking annual plant that can reach heights over twelve feet - and even that is more than many people know about it. Although hemp (cannabis sativa) and marijuana (cannabis sativa var. indica) come from a similar species of plant, they are very different and are often confused. Hemp oil is an oil extracted from the hemp plant. All plants in the Cannabis genus can produce the oil, but usually only industrial hemp is used to make hemp oil. Industrial hemp is a hemp varietal which has been cultivated specifically for industrial production, and it has a minimum of the psychoactive substances associated with the genus, most notably THC. Hemp oil is typically almost free of THC, and it has no psychoactive properties. Seeds tend to produce the best hemp oil, although the whole plant can be pressed for oil. Cold pressed oil which has not been refined has a rich, nutty flavor and a green tint. After refining, hemp oil becomes colorless, and the flavor is fairly minimal. There are a number of uses for it. One classic use is in soaps. Hemp oil is also used in paints and lubricants, and as a body care product. It may be rubbed directly onto the skin to treat cracked, dry skin, or it can be blended into body oils, body creams, and other personal care products. Some people also use it as a dietary supplement, taking advantage of the high concentrations of essential fatty acids in unrefined hemp oil and using the oil as a dressing or garnish to improve nutrition. The oil is also not suitable for cooking, because it has a very low smoking point. Hemp Oil Nutrition The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the less desired saturated fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is reputed to be the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom. The essential fatty acids contained in hemp seed oil are required in our diet more than any other vitamin, yet our bodies do not naturally produce them. Hemp seed oil has been dubbed "Nature's most perfectly balanced oil", due to the fact that it contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linolei/LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition. Hemp actually contains more protein and omegas and less carbs than the same serving of Chia or Flax. Hemp Oil Benefits Hemp oil for cancer The hemp oil has a number of health benefits and its products as well as its raw forms are used to provide many essential amino acids to the body. If the body is deprived of any of these amino acids there are serious problems like genetic mutations and cancer. Hemp oil can help cancer as the essential and non-essential amino acids are present in abundance in the oil and thus when hemp oil is regularly used by cancer patients, there are chances of cure. Thus using hemp seed oil is very useful for many reasons. Hemp Oil Benefits for Skin The hemp oil contains a number of fatty acids which are very healthy for your skin. These fatty acids nourish and moisturize your skin in the right manner and sufficient amount. There are many skin products like face creams and body creams which have hemp oil as the main ingredients. This is because it is herbal and has almost no side effects. A skin massage of only hemp oil, would give you healthy and rich skin which looks very young and held. If you are a regular user of hemp oil products for the natural skin care, it acts as an anti-aging benefit too. Hemp oil prevents skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, acne and dry skin. Hemp Oil Benefits for Hair There are many hair health benefits of hemp oil as well. Many non-commercial and herbal hair products like shampoos, hair oils, conditioners, etc. are made by using hemp oil. Like the skin care, massages with hemp oil products can improve blood circulation in the head and the brain. Washing hair with hemp oil shampoos and conditioners, can thicken the hair texture and keep the scalp away from dandruff. Thus hemp oil is very beneficial for your hair care as well. Loss of hair is also reduced by using them and scalp infections and problems are kept away. Hemp seed oil, like Argan oil for hair, is a good source of many nutrients than can benefit the health of your hair. It is proven to be helpful for developing keratin formation. Hemp seed oil for hair helps develop stronger and healthier hair. Hemp oil for acne Hemp Seed is a non-clogging oil. When applying any type of oil you always want to check to make sure it has a low comedogenic rating to avoid making things worse. Hemp Seed oil has a comedogenic rating of zero which means that it does not clog pores and is safe to use on acne prone skin.

15 Ways to Get Rid of DUST MITES Quickly
House dust mites are tiny creatures, about a quarter of a millimetre long. They live off human skin scales which have been partially digested by moulds and thrive in humid environments. Mites are found in bedding, carpets, soft furnishings and clothing. In people allergic to dust mite, it is often not the mite itself but proteins in their droppings which cause the allergy. Each mite produces about 20 of these waste droppings every day and the droppings continue to cause allergic symptoms even after the mite has died. House dust mite allergy is very common and is associated with asthma, eczema and perennial allergic rhinitis. A significant amount of exposure to house dust mite allergen happens in the bed, so taking precautions in the bedroom by using allergy-proof covers on bedding, washing it regularly can sometimes help, although clinical trials suggest that multiple measures need to be taken, possibly including the use of chemicals called acaricides, in order to see an effect. However, remember that dust mite allergen is found in all rooms of the house, on the floor and in soft furnishings, not just in the bedroom. Measures to avoid house dust mite will lower, but do not totally remove, dust mite allergens. Often, this will be sufficient to significantly improve symptoms, but sometimes, the reduction may simply not be enough to result in a noticeable difference. There is no way to predict whether someone will benefit from avoidance measures, except by trying them. Remember that it is better to properly carry out several allergen avoidance measures in order to see an improvement in symptoms. Just doing one or two things half-heartedly may not make any difference. Controlling house dust mite allergens At home: Most efforts at controlling dust mites should be aimed at areas of the home where you spend most of your time and where dust mite load is greatest, i.e. bedrooms and living areas. Use allergen-proof barrier covers on all mattresses, duvets and pillows. These should be breathable and should completely enclose the item. Buy products that have been tested to make sure that they prevent the escape of house dust mite allergen. Wash all bedding that is not encased in barrier covers (e.g. sheets, blankets) every week. Washing at 60 degrees centigrade or above will kill mites. House dust mite allergen dissolves in water so washing at lower temperatures will wash the allergen away temporarily, but the mites will survive and produce more allergen after a while. Allergic children should not sleep in the bottom bunk bed where allergen can fall onto them. If possible remove all carpeting in the bedroom. Vacuum hard floors regularly with a high-filtration vacuum cleaner (see below). Remove all carpeting from concrete floors. Such floors trap moisture allowing dust mites and mould spores to thrive. Seal the floor with a vapour barrier, and then cover it with a washable surface such as vinyl or linoleum. There are certain types of flooring designed to prevent allergen build up (details of suitable floorings are available from Allergy UK). Where carpets cannot be removed, vacuum regularly with a high-filtration vacuum cleaner. Use a high-temperature steam-cleaner to kill mites effectively. Products are available that can be sprayed on carpets to kill mites; these are effective but should be used with care if you suffer from respiratory symptoms, and should not be used in areas where children play on the carpet, or on soft toys or pillows. Use a high-filtration vacuum cleaner with filters capable of retaining a high proportion of the smallest particles (HEPA filter, S-class filter or similar). Details of suitable vacuum cleaners are available from Allergy UK. Damp-wipe all surfaces each week (pelmet tops, window sills, tops of cupboards and so forth). Use light washable cotton curtains, and wash them frequently. Reduce unnecessary soft furnishings Vacuum all surfaces of upholstered furniture at least twice a week. Washable stuffed toys should be washed as frequently and at the same temperature as bedding. Alternatively, if the toy cannot be washed at 60 degrees place it in a plastic bag in the freezer for at least 12 hours once a month and then wash at the recommended temperature. Reduce humidity by increasing ventilation. Use trickle-vents in double-glazing, or open windows. Use extract fans in bathrooms and kitchens. If necessary use a dehumidifier to keep indoor humidity under 50% (but over 30%)

How To Detoxify Your Liver With Milk Thistle
How to Use Milk Thistle for Liver Detoxification As your primary defense against dietary and environmental toxins, your liver is one of the most important organs in your body. Modern society, with its polluted air and chemically loaded food and drinks, can be particularly stressful on the liver. Milk thistle is a powerful herb with a proven ability to protect, detoxify and rejuvenate your liver. Here’s how to use milk thistle for liver detoxification and the best milk thistle extract to use for a healthy liver. Your liver is the master chemical processing plant of your body, performing over 300 critical metabolic functions. It converts various compounds into the substances your body needs to function properly and is integral to good health. Amongst its many responsibilities, your liver deals with the various toxic compounds that you may breathe in through polluted air, ingest in your food, or drink in your water or beverages every day. Your liver is very good at its job, but it will come as a surprise to no one that our air is getting more polluted, our supermarket foods more loaded with chemical additives and the liquids we drink, like coffee, soda and alcoholic beverages, are full of substances that have to be detoxified by the liver. An overloaded liver, burdened by too many toxins, can become sluggish, fatty and have difficulties performing its most important functions. Once that starts happening headaches, fatigue, poor skin tone, lowered immune function, gastrointestinal problems and a general lack of energy are just the start of the many and varied health problems that can result. Many people report a dramatic improvement in a long list of seemingly unrelated health problems once they start taking care of their liver. A healthier diet and more exercise will certainly help, but one of the best ways to begin healing your liver is with a liver detox. Milk thistle is a proven and potent herb for healing and detoxifying your liver. The compound silymarin found in milk thistle extract has been studied for decades and is now recognized as one of the best supplements for liver health. Milk thistle and its silymarin are known to have the following benefits for protecting and detoxifying your liver: Milk Thistle Increases Glutathione Antioxidant Activity Glutathione is considered the body’s master antioxidant and vital for effective liver functioning. Milk thistle extract has been shown to increase glutathione levels in the liver by up to 35 percent and decrease oxidative stress. The silymarin in milk thistle has also been observed to increase superoxide dismutase, another one of your body’s most important antioxidant enzymes for combating free radical damage.
