How Do You Get Hemorrhoids?

How Do You Get Hemorrhoids?
 by: Rudy Silva

A lot of people don't even know they have hemorrhoids. The rectum is not an area you can readily see. Some times you don't know you have hemorrhoids until you see blood in the toilet water after a bowel movement, when you start to have pain or discomfort in the rectum, or when you feel extra tissue around the rectum.
So how do you develop hemorrhoids? For sure, constipation is not the only way you can get hemorrhoids. Here are some additional ways:
o Alcoholism or drinking to many alcoholic drinks
o Being pregnant and not eating enough fiber
o Doing daily heavy lifting and holding your breath while you do it
o Eating excessive processed foods, which are low in fiber and move slowly through your colon.
o General body weakness, which will affect the colon function
o Having a predisposition to constipation or inheriting a weakness in the colon and rectum area
* Holding fecal matter too long in the rectum causing pressure to buildup in the rectum veins - postponing a bowel movement
o Having a weak liver, which reduces the amount of bile released into the intestines. Bile helps to active peristaltic action.
o Having inflammation in the rectum that causes you to have constipation
o Irregular eating patterns
o Lack of protein leading to weak tissues and slow healing of wounds
o Not eating foods that keeps you constipation free such as fiber, vegetables, essential fatty acids, protein, water.
o Not getting the right vitamins and minerals in your food.
o Being overweight
o Poor muscle tone in the anal area from lack of exercise
o Pressure on rectum veins from cysts or tumor in the colon
o Sitting in a chair at home, at work, in a car, or in a truck for long periods
Using laxatives to the point where your colon no longer works properly and you end up with constipation
As you can see there are many reasons that you can develop hemorrhoids. And most of them relate to the function of your colon. If you want hemorrhoid relief look at the list and see which condition or situation relates to you and try to make changes in these conditions. In addition to changes add new foods that will help your colon to work better.

Skin Treatment - 8 Great New Skin Treatments by Hayden Barile

Skin Treatment - 8 Great New Skin Treatments
 by: Hayden Barile
Great new treatments for your skin

Want great looking skin in under an hour? Well now it's possible to achieve this with a variety of new skin treatments available at your local salon. Whether you want to smooth out lines and wrinkles or improve the tone and texture of your skin there is no need to go under the knife as the new treatments available require no down time.

Here are 8 treatments that are currently available:

Botox and Dermal Fillers

A popular choice – Botox can temporarily erase lines and wrinkles and can also be administered to reshape the face to create a softer, more youthful appearance. It can also give a lifting effect to the brow, or make the face appear more slim-lined. Similar to Botox are Dermal Fillers (Perlane, Restylane) and these are equally as popular to fill out unwanted lines on the face.

Omnilux Revive

Targets ageing, rejuvenates skin and improves the effect of skincare. This treatment involves a spectrally pure, non-laser light source that is directed on to the skin for 20 minutes. Through the use of only the red light part of the natural white light spectrum, the skin is rejuvenated.


A series of injections that aim to firm and tighten facial contours. Injected under the skin are a combination of vitamins, minerals and hyaluronic acid and amino acids. This has a rejuvenating effect and also lifts the skin. A few treatments may be required

Aptos Threads

Placed under the skin to lift facial contours and smooth out wrinkles. The treatment can be used on the face, breasts, buttocks and neck. A local anesthetic is administered and threads are placed between the skin and muscle using a special needle. The threads are then tightened to deliver the desired result.


A stabilized haluronic acid that is injected to lift and fill hollow cheeks and sagging jowl areas.

Sculptra Wrinkle Treatment

An injectible form of polylactic acid, which helps stimulate the body's own production of collagen, making skin firmer and younger looking. This treatment can be used on the face and neck, but also effective used on the hands.

Fraxel Laser Treatment

A specifically targeted laser applied to pigmented or damaged skin cells. A topical anesthetic is applied, then a blue tint, this highlights skin contours therefore increasing accuarcy. After treatment expect fewer lines and wrinkles and a reduction in pigmentation.

IPL LaserSmooth Photorejuvenation

This treatment directs Super Intense Pulsed Light on to the skin to reduce pigmentation, broken capillaries, enlarged pores and fine lines. The intense pulsed light is applied in a series of gentle pulses. Heat from the light causes damage to abnormal blood vessels or pigmentation. When the body heals it clears away the blemished skin in the process.

Eucalyptus Oil for Colds and Flu

Eucalyptus Oil for Colds and Flu
 by: Rudy Silva
Recently I came down with a cold, flu, and some heavy chest congestion. My 8-year daughter also became sick.
One of the Natural Remedies I used was Eucalyptus Oil, which helped to reduce the chest congestion and the symptoms of the flu.
Herbalists use this oil to treat colds, coughs, and other respiratory ailments. Eucalyptus helps to loosen phlegm and improve lung function.
The active ingredient in eucalyptus oil is cineol or euclyptol.
The oil is a fine decongestant and has strong germicidal and antibacterial effects.
Some other uses for Eucalyptus are skin problems, muscle, and nerve pain. It has been used as diuretic, and to lower blood sugar.
Here's how I use this oil to help me when I have a cold with cough and chest congestion. Just before bedtime, I rub the oil on my chest and throat. Then I wrap a cloth around my neck to keep it warm and to help the eucalyptus to penetrate the skin.
If you have EMU oil, you can add a drop or two of EMU to the eucalyptus oil to help it penetrate your skin faster and deeper. EMU oil has the property of penetrating the skin and moving deep into your tissues and to carry any other substances that are mix with it into the skin.
I use plenty of eucalyptus oil in the rub, but some of you might react to it so just rub a little to see it you will be ok with it. If you use eucalyptus oil with other oils, it becomes less irritating.
Eucalyptus oil can also be used in a steam inhalation to help with colds or flu.
You can also mix eucalyptus with tea tree oil and massage your chest and back when you have the flu.
You can also mix eucalyptus with thyme, rosemary and lemon and diffuse it into the room when you are sick with the flu or cold.
Only use eucalyptus for the time need to clear you cold. Long-term use of this oil has an effect on the liver.
Do not use eucalyptus oil on children under 6 years.

Drugstore Hemorrhoid Medications

Drugstore Hemorrhoid Medications
 by: Rudy Silva
There are many drugstore and alternative Internet products for treating hemorrhoids. Most of the products are not made to cure or eliminate hemorrhoids but to give you temporary relief of itching, pain, swelling or bleeding. I don't recommend using any type of product that is not natural or that comes from a drugstore.
If the product contains petrochemicals, additives, coloring, dyes, or other chemicals, which enhance its appearance and feel, I would not use them. Most, if not all, of these chemicals will be absorbed into your body where your organs of elimination will have to deal with eliminating them.
All products whether drugs, drugstore medications, or natural formulations use chemicals, substances, oils, and herbs that have the following properties: Anesthetics - suppresses pain and gives relief…any name with the suffix "caine" like tetracaine Analgesics - suppresses and give pain relief - some of them are Anacin, Tylenol with Codeine, OxyContin, Darvocet, Ultracet Vasoconstrictors - helps to narrow or constrict hemorrhoidal veins…any name with the suffix "rine" like phenylephrine Lubricants - provide lubrication in the colon to relieve constipation - mineral oil, flax seed oil, castor, oil olive oil Astringents - help to tighten tissue, which have been pushed out by hemorrhoid action - zinc oxide, witch hazel, calamine Keratolytics - help to remove excess hemorrhoidal tissue. They are compounds of sulfur and salicylic acid
Many of the drugstore medications have anesthetics. They can aggravate and irritate the hemorrhoids you're trying to eliminate. If you are using one of these drugstore medications, consider using a more natural remedy.
In 1975 Carl I. Flath, wrote a book called The Miracle Nutrient - How Dietary Fiber Can Save Your Life. In his book he talks about the effectiveness of drugstore suppositories,
"Suppositories quickly work their way up in the rectum beyond the location of most internal hemorrhoids, and so are of limited value in reducing local pain. As antiseptics they are essentially worthless, since the surface areas they are supposed to protect are under constant exposure to new bacteria…. Anesthetic agents do offer temporary relief from local irritations and pain… Neither the suppositories nor the ointments, however, do anything whatever to correct the basic cause of hemorrhoids-constipation."
