• This is what will happen when you eat avocados every day

    20/Jul/2016 // 2614 Viewers

     

    You’ve probably seen avocados being touted as a heart-healthy superfood in recent years. Realistically, the truth isn’t too far off from the hype. The next time you’re grabbing that burrito or turkey sandwich, you might want to consider adding a healthy dollop of guacamole. Here are four reasons that you should consider eating a little bit of avocado each day.

    1. You may reduce your risk of heart disease.
    Heart disease is the number 1 killer in the United States, affecting nearly 27 million adults, so it only makes sense that we would want to protect ourselves by being more health-conscious in our dietary choices. Avocados have been shown to positively benefit our cardiovascular system in a number of ways due to its low saturated fat and high unsaturated fat content (predominantly the monounsaturated fat (MUFA) variety). Consuming excess saturated fat (>10% of total calories) may raise your LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglycerides. On the contrary, consuming adequate unsaturated fat in your diet may help lower LDL-cholesterol (bad cholesterol), maintain HDL-cholesterol (good cholesterol) and potentially improve your insulin sensitivity.

    In addition its nutritious fat content, avocados also contain a potent mix of nutrients (e.g., potassium and lutein), including plenty of antioxidants such as carotenoids, callexanthophylls and phenols. These compounds can help prevent inflammation and oxidative stress in the blood vessels while facilitating improved blood flow.

    2. You may have an easier time maintaining your weight
    Eating fat to lose fat; who would have thought? Avocados can help with weight-loss and maintaining a healthy BMI by promoting a feeling of satiety. A recent study showed that including avocado in meals helped extend feelings of fullness and reduced the desire to overindulge. The belly-filling properties of avocados is aided by their high fiber content, about 14g per fruit on average. In addition, higher avocado consumption has been associated with smaller waistlines and lower BMIs in observational studies.  Lastly, some research has even shown that weight-loss diets higher in MUFA, like the kind avocados are packed with, may prove healthier for your heart than low-fat weight-loss diets.

    3. You might reduce your risk of cancer
    Avocados provide us with numerous phytochemicals that may help prevent cancer, including the previously discussed xanthophylls and phenols. A protein compound called glutathione, along with the xanthophyll lutein (both found in avocados), have been associated with decreased rates of oral cancer. Preliminary data also show promising results for avocados’ potential role in reducing risk of both breast and prostate cancers. Additionally, preliminary studies demonstrate that a specific type of fav derived from avocados is able to exert anti-cancer effects on acute myeloid leukemia cells. Together, these studies show that further research needs to be conducted to draw more conclusive results.

    4. You will protect your skin and eyes well into old age
    As it turns out, avocado carotenoids do quite a number of things for our body. Both lutein and another compound found in avocados called zeaxanthin can slow age-related ocular decline and prevent vision dysfunction. In addition, these same two nutrients also act as buffers against oxidative UV damage, keeping our skin smooth and healthy. The bioavailability (ease of absorption by our body) of carotenoids from avocados compared to many other fruits and vegetables makes eating avocados every day a sensible choice.

    Recipes to try:

    Avocado Smoothie

    ½ ripe avocado
    1 ripe banana
    ½ cup low-fat yogurt
    ½ cup orange juice
    OPTIONAL: handful of ice
    Combine ingredients into blender and mix.

    Bacon Peach Guacamole

    1 ripe peach
    2 ripe avocados
    ¼ red onion, minced
    2 strips bacon, crisped
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Cut peaches into small dice and place in bowl. Mash avocados and combine with peaches. Crisp bacon in skillet, dice and add to bowl. Mince onion and add to guacamole. Enjoy with whole-grain tortilla chips.

    Aside from the multitude of health benefits, avocados have the extra bonus of being a tasty, creamy food that can be incorporated into shakes, desserts, dips, and toppings. So don’t be afraid to add avocado! - lifehack.com

  • When not to have sex while pregnant - Experts

    20/Jul/2016 // 380 Viewers

     


    Some couples worry about sexual intercourse during pregnancy, fearing that the thrusting of the penis can damage the baby. In most cases, sexual intercourse can’t do any damage, but certain conditions may prevent a couple from having intercourse.

    The most common signs that sex could cause problems for the mother or baby is spotting or pain after intercourse. If a woman notices either of these things, she should avoid sex until she’s consulted her doctor.

    The obstetrician will also warn a woman if she should avoid intercourse after seeing the results of her sonogram — a picture of the baby made by sound waves, which is now a routine part of pregnancy care.

    Only about 3 out of 100 women have a problem that prevents sexual intercourse. If you think you might be one of the 3 percent of women who has such a problem, consult your doctor. Even in these cases, that limitation should not stop her from enjoying sex and from seeking satisfaction but only cause her to limit the ways in which she does this.

    If the man uses his finger to masturbate his partner, or if she masturbates herself, more care must be taken than when doing this during normal times. Because her vaginal area has more blood flowing to it than normal, it will be more sensitive and so more prone to scratches and irritations caused by fingernails or calluses. If a woman does find that she experiences these types of irritations, be sure to use plenty of lubricant the next time you have sex.

  • BREAKING: Sex with HIV positive person on ARVs is safe!

    20/May/2016 // 2498 Viewers

     


    The early treatment of people with HIV massively reduces their infectiousness and gives the world our first real opportunity to halt the HIV epidemic.

    This follows results of a trial released in May which found that sex with an HIV positive person on ARV treatment with an undetectable viral load is as safe as using condoms.

    ‘€œThis is the biggest news of the year,’€ according to Dr Francois Venter, head of the Southern African HIV Clinicians’€™ Society.

    ‘€œNo other intervention beyond abstinence shows such a level of protection. It’€™s probably even safer than condoms because things often go wrong with condoms.’€

    The trial has revolutionised HIV policy-making as, for the first time, ARVs are being counted as a weapon to prevent the spread of HIV as well as to treat the virus ‘€“ what the experts are now calling treatment-as-prevention.

    The trial involved over 1 700 ‘€œdiscordant’€ couples, made up of an HIV positive and negative partner, and it was conducted in South Africa and eight other countries.

    All the HIV positive partners had CD4 counts of between 350 and 500, which means that they did not yet need antiretroviral medication.

    The couples were randomly divided into two groups. In the first group, the HIV positive partners were put onto ARVs immediately. In the second group, ARVs were delayed until the partners with HIV reached a CD4 count of 250 or developed an AIDS-related illness.

    The difference between the two groups, with over 800 couples in each, was striking.

    In Group One, only one person became HIV-infected but in Group Two, 27 people got HIV from their partners.

    Venter was on the Data Safety and Monitoring Board (DSMB) of the trial, which actually stopped the trial early because the results were so ‘€œunequivocal’€.

    ‘€œThe one HIV transmission in the first group meant there was a 96 percent reduction in transmission. But even that one transmission was a weird one,’€ says Venter.

    It happened right at the beginning of the trial, he said, indicating that the man was either already infected or that his partner had not yet reached an undetectable viral load.

    ‘€œI would say that people who are on successful ARV treatment are 100 percent safe and will not transmit the virus,’€ said Venter.

    Venter added that a CD4 count of 350, recently introduced in South Africa, was also the optimal time to start ARVs.

    ‘€œIf all HIV positive people started ARVs at CD4 350, this would have a massive effect on transmission,’€ said Venter.

    ‘€œBut there is very little health benefit for people with CD4 greater than 350 going on ARVs simply to protect their partners.’€

    The one drawback of the study is that only three percent of participants were men who have sex with men, which is a group at high risk of HIV.

    Infectious diseases specialist Dr Kevin Rebe says the risk of HIV infection from anal sex is 18 times higher for the receptive partner than vaginal sex.

    ‘€œI would recommend early ARV treatment in men who have sex with men, but without a solid research base,’€ says Rebe, who runs the Ivan Toms Men’€™s Clinic in Cape Town.

    ‘€œWe need the highest risk groups to be represented adequately in studies like this.’€

    Meanwhile, the health department’€™s Thobile Mbengashe described the treatment-as-prevention as a ‘€œgame-changer’€.

    Speaking at a recent meeting, Mbengashe said that South Africa could carry on doing things as usual ‘€“ or we could hit the epidemic hard with a few proven interventions such as treatment-as-prevention that actually have a chance to halt the spread of HIV.

    With the business-as-usual approach, ‘€œwe will double the expenditure from R16 million to R32 billion by 2030. There will be an increase infections, death and costs and this is not sustainable,’€ said Mbengashe.

    But the approach being advocated by the new National Strategic Plan on HIV, due for release on World AIDS Day, advocates a rapid expansion of services aimed ensuring that 80 percent of people have access to annual HIV tests and the treatment of three million people with CD4 count of 350 by 2015.

     ‘€œWe will probably end up spending the same amount of money as the business-as-usual approach, but we will have a far greater effect and we will have a chance to halt the spread of HIV, whereas the old approach is unsustainable,’€ said Mbengashe.

    The biggest obstacle to mass treatment, however, remains the fact that the majority of HIV positive South Africans still don’€™t know that they are living with the virus.

    ‘€œAlthough testing has increased significantly in sub-Saharan Africa in recent years, only about 20 percent of men and 28 percent of women in South Africa received an HIV test and result within the past year,’€ according to Professor Salim Abdool Karim, head of the Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in SA (CAPRISA).

    ‘€œThe most recent national HIV survey revealed that 74 percent of those most at risk of acquiring the virus were unaware of their HIV status.’€

    A number of new approaches, including HIV self-testing kits, are being explored to ensure that all South Africans are able to know their HIV status, and if they test positive take advantage of treatment services and keep their sexual partners safe from HIV. - www.health-e.org.za

  • 5 Little-Known Things That Help Men Last Longer In Bed

    21/Apr/2016 // 762 Viewers

     

    Most men are insecure about two things: sex and penis size. Men from all walks of life pride themselves on the size of their penis and their duration in bed, believing an above-average size and performance can feed the sexual appetite of their partner. Although men can’t do much about the size of their genitalia (except plastic surgery), they can control premature ejaculation to make sex last longer.

    The ability to finish early and quickly can be advantageous in many areas in life, but not when it comes to sex. Premature ejaculation is a common and often distressing problem for couples who simply want to find ways to make sex last longer. Harry Fisch, author of the book, The New Naked: The Ultimate Sex Education for Grown-Ups, found although an astonishing 45 percent of men finish sex too quickly, specifically within two minutes, the average duration is 7.3 minutes — only four minutes less than women’s ideal time.

    These statistics may be discouraging for men and women alike, but like any athletic activity, sexual performance and stamina is improved in the most unexpected ways. Remember, not all men are doomed to be the infamous guy in Missy Elliot’s 2001 rap song, “One Minute Man.” Here are little-known things that actually help you last longer in bed that you probably didn’t know.

    1. A Bigger Belly

    Men, size does matter when it comes to sex. The bigger the belly, the better the lover, according to a 2010 study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. Overweight men with obvious bellies lasted an average of 7.3 minutes compared to their thinner counterparts who could barely make it to two minutes. Although this seems counterintuitive, the researchers found more belly fat means the man has more estradiol, the female sex hormone, which helps inhibit orgasm. 

    2. Adult Circumcision

    The phrase “better late than never” applies to several areas of life, including adult circumcision. A 2004 study published journal Adult Urology unveiled circumcised men took “significantly longer” to ejaculate after they got a circumcision in adulthood. Ironically, this may actually be considered advantageous, rather than a complication, when it comes to lasting longer in bed. Temucin Senkul, lead researcher of the study and an urologist with GATA Haydarpasa Training Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey, speculates the delay to reach ejaculation may result in circumcision lessening the penis’ sensitivity. Ejaculation time may be different, since losing skin is something different that these men have to get used to.

    3. Pelvic Floor Exercises

    Pelvic floor exercises aren’t just for women or those with bladder problems — they can help treat men with lifelong premature ejaculation. In a study presented at the European Congress of Urology in Stockholm, a small cohort of men aged 19 to 46 with an average ejaculation time of 31.7 seconds, tried pelvic floor exercises over the course of 12 weeks. The 33 out of 40 men who were able to improve their ejaculation time within 12 weeks with these exercises and their own efforts also helped their self-confidence. At the end of the course, the average ejaculation time had increased to 146.2 seconds — nearly four times the average at the start of the study.

    4. Vegetarian Diet

    Vegetarians are known for their strong stance on dairy and meat intake, including their stamina and energy in bed. A vegan diet that is high in fruit content can provide more sustainable energy that will not lead to the often seen “sugar crash” from processed sugar. For example, a banana is high in potassium, a nutrient that helps in sex-hormone production and boosts energy.

    Tests have shown that vegetarians have twice the stamina of meat eaters. A study published in the Yale Medical Journal compared meat-eating athletes to vegetarians and near-vegetarians, half of whom were sedentary. Researchers measured how long they could hold arms outstretched and the number of deep-knee bends the participants did. The findings revealed only 13 percent of meat-eating athletes could hold their arms out for 15 minutes compared to 69 percent of vegetarians. Moreover, no meat-eating athletes could hold their arms out for 30 minutes compared to 47 percent of vegetarians only. When it came to knee bends, only 33 percent of the meat eaters exceeded 352 knee bends, compared to 81 percent of their vegetarian counterparts.

    5. Viagra

    The little blue pill can do a lot more than just treat erectile dysfunction or impotence in men; it can also boost men’s sexual performance. The “magic pill” that contains phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors — used to treat erectile dysfunction — helped extend the length of time men could last in bed before reaching an orgasm, according to a 2012 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Although 11 out of the 14 studies demonstrated erectile dysfunction medication was associated with longer duration in bed, the studies were unable to determine whether the medication was actually responsible since some did not test it against a placebo.

    Overcoming premature ejaculation, or simply the desire to boost sexual stamina, can be resolved simply with the concept of mind over matter. Like any athletic activity, stamina and endurance in sex, is practiced and cultivated. After all, lasting longer in bed shouldn't be seen as an impossible feat for men. - Medical Daily

    21/Aug/2016 // 1141 Viewers

     

    PARIS, AUGUST 21, 2016: (DGW) Medical research conducted by MAYO CLINIC shows that infertility men could be caused by certain factors which fall into three categories ranging from medical causes, lifestyle to medical causes. 

    MAYO CLINIC , one of the leading medical research groups says infertility may be caused by an infection which attacks the male semen or sperm or  undescended testicles and hormone imbalance.

    The following are the other factors that are capable of causing  fertility:

    *Exposure to lead or other heavy metals

    *Exposure to radiation or X-rays

    *Overheating the testicles through frequent use of saunas or hot tubs

    *Sitting for long periods, wearing tight clothing or working on a laptop computer for long stretches of time

    *Use of anabolic steroids taken to stimulate muscle strength and growth can cause the testicles to shrink and sperm production to decrease
    *Use of cocaine or marijuana may temporarily reduce the number and quality of your sperm as well

    *Drinking alcohol can lower testosterone levels, cause erectile dysfunction and decrease sperm production.

    *Liver disease caused by excessive drinking also may lead to fertility problems.

    *Tobacco smoking

    *Emotional stress

    *Obesity can impair fertility

  • HOW NOT TO DIE: The natural diabetes solutions that works

    21/Aug/2016 // 534 Viewers

     

    THE NATION - Many has said that there is currently no cure for diabetes, There are many natural treatments that has been established. From Research so far conducted, it has shown that preventing or even reversing type II diabetes is possible. The steps that can help prevent the condition are also beneficial for those who have the disorder, regardless of how long they have had it. He’s a look at some of the steps.

    Regular Exercise

    Exercising regularly is beneficial for prevention and continues to be beneficial, even if the exercise does not lead to weight loss. Exercise improves glucose tolerance and glucose metabolism. It also raises good HDL cholesterol levels in the bloodstream, which can help to reduce the risk of the complications that is associated with type II diabetes. Click this link healthinesscall.com.ng

    Lose Body Fat
     
    A high waist-to-hip ratio and High body fat (where the waist measurement is larger than the hip measurement) are normally associated with an increased risk. Losing body fat and reducing the waist-to-hip ration may reduce your risk of developing the disorder and could also improve your cellular insulin sensitivity.

    Fat is believed to clog cellular insulin receptors. These receptors are located on the outside of the cells. When the receptor is not clogged, insulin enters the receptor and causes the cell to absorb glucose for energy, getting it out of the bloodstream where it causes problems.Because of the insulin resistance that accompanies type II diabetes, the cells usually do not absorb glucose or they absorb very little. Thus insulin and glucose levels in the bloodstream rise. healthinesscall.com.ng

    You can lose 40% of your body fat by exercising more and by reducing the amount of fat in your diet. For those people with pre-diabetes or type II diabetes, the recommended fat consumption is less than 30% of calories. Some Diabetes organizations recommend 20%. Less than 20% can cause problems with satiety and weight control.

    Choose and get used to Healthy Fats consumption

    Ensure that the fats you take in should be the healthy polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated ones. Saturated fats should be limited. Trans-fat should be completely eliminated. You have to become something of a detective if you eat a lot of packaged, processed or prepared foods to make sure you are getting the right kind of fat. If you eat mostly natural foods that you prepare at home, it is easier. olive oil,Fish, brown rice,oatmeal, fruits and vegetables should be the staples of your diet.

    Diabetes 
    Take Some Good Dietary Supplements

    Type II diabetes has been associated with a variety of nutritional deficiencies. Nutrition may also be involved in Type I. Optimizing your nutrient intake can help regardless of whether you are currently in the Pre-diabetes stage or you have had type I all of your life. healthinesscall.com.ng

    There are some Natural Diabetes Solutions that were designed to help people with diabetes, although they are not always advertised as such. Basically, they support normal glucose metabolism, protect pancreatic cells that produce insulin and improve insulin sensitivity.

    You should not rely on a specialty supplement alone, but a good one can certainly help.

  • What Muslim women really want in the bedroom

    21/Feb/2016 // 771 Viewers

     

    Sex is taboo subject for most Muslims. However, a growing number of young Muslim women are talking about what they really want when in the bedroom. Shelina Janmohamed, author of Love in a Headscarf, explains how women are leading the way in her faith when it comes to understanding sexuality.

    Abdelaziz Aouragh runs an online sex shop for Muslims. “We don’t sell products that simply enhance the love life between man and woman,” he explains. “All of our products provide a deeper meaning to sexuality, sensuality and even spirituality.”
    His company El Asira, based in the Netherlands, offers products like “sensual silicone” and “glamour lotion.” All of his products are Halal.
    “The majority of our customers are women,” he tells me. “With men there is too much bravado.”
    I see this pattern often repeated of Muslim women leading their male counterparts in the discussion about sexuality and intimacy.
    According to Islamic law, sex is limited to between those who are married. But when it comes to exactly what you can do, and how sex is generally discussed, Islam itself is quite open. Sex is of course for procreation, but it’s also for pleasure.
     
    There are stories about how Prophet Muhammad would be approached in the mosque by women and men asking open questions about sexuality. In one famous tale, a woman came to see him on her wedding night, to complain her husband was too busy praying and hadn't come near her. The Prophet went to see the husband, admonished him for being too engrossed in religious prayer and instructed him to, erm, pay more attention to his bride.
    This openness has been lost over time, and discussions about sex have become taboo. However, things are slowly changing.
    Wedad Lootah is a UAE marriage counsellor who published an Arabic sex guide, Top Secret: Sexual Guidance for Married Couples, on how to achieve sexual intimacy with your partner, stating couples needed the advice. Her book was blessed by the mufti of the UAE. But she received intense criticism.
     
    Whilst engaged, my now husband and I attended a ‘pre-marriage’ seminar, one of the first of its kind in the UK. The one day training included an hour about sex. It wasn’t very good, but nonetheless, I was pleased that the subject was raised and the taboo broken.
    Jenny is an Irish Muslim organising a similar two part seminar for young women only, the first on marriage, the second on intimacy. “The girls don’t know what should be happening in their intimate lives,” she explains. “The men tell them to do X or Y, and they don’t know any better.” Jenny understands that her seminar is unusual, but her primary concern is that the young women receive this education, and criticism is kept at bay. For this reason, she asks I don’t quote her real name: “I’m sticking my neck out here.”
    It’s not a sex instruction class that she’ll be hosting. “We’re not telling them what goes where!” laughs Jenny. “But these girls need to know their rights in the bedroom.”
    In the USA, controversial Muslim activist Asra Nomani has written an “Islamic Bill of Rights for Women in the Bedroom.” to ‘uphold women’s right to pleasure”. Nomani says she received negative feedback about the bill. But when I read about it I remember thinking, this is not in the least controversial or new for Islam. If anything it shows how little Muslims - even vocal ones - have knowledge about Islam's un-guilty approach to sex, or understand that Islam has always been extremely open about sexual pleasure, and in particular women’s pleasure.
    Yet, it’s undeniable that to talk about sexuality, especially as a woman, is difficult, and as a consequence I’m genuinely apprehensive about publishing this piece. But push on I will.
    It’s a subject that needs to be openly addressed, precisely so that these contradictions can be unravelled.
    There is a lack of research about the existing levels of sexual knowledge among Muslims. How much do they know? Where do they gain their knowledge? And perhaps the most difficult to ask: what is the reality of how they conduct their sexual lives?
    A new chick-lit novel about to be published in the UK is called No Sex and The City and features a Muslim heroine. And last year in the US, an anthology of true courtship stories written by Muslim women was published delightfully entitled Love, Inshallah (God willing). Amongst the narratives there were those that were sexually explicit and spoke about sex both inside and outside marriage. Whilst the book itself was extremely popular, its comparatively graphic nature drew positive feedback as well as criticism. But the more important point of both books is that Muslim women themselves are trying to open a discussion about sexuality, its role in their identity, and their fears and aspirations.
     

    For those Muslims who want to live a chaste life, the pressures are immense. Our surroundings are notoriously sexualised. Virginity is seen as freakish. And rejection of ‘sexual liberation’ is seen as backward. For teen Muslims, these challenges must be particularly difficult.

    If contextually appropriate teachings are not available – whether at home, in the mosque or in other social settings – then the taboos about sexuality become entrenched, lead to diminished knowledge, and pleasure or even negativity about sex.

    So where should a young (or even old!) Muslim turn to for sexual teachings that they feel are in line with an Islamic perspective. Courses like the one being run by Jenny are few and far between. And those willing to discuss matters openly are equally rare.

    And to even begin such discussions, what is needed is a healthy dose of facing up to the fact that how Muslims live their lives is not necessarily the same as the Islamic ideals they aspire to.

    A famous Islamic traditional teaching about sexual pleasure says that when God created desire, He made it into ten parts. He gave nine parts to women, and just one to men. So it’s no wonder women are leaving men behind when it comes to trying to better understand their sexuality, as well as the relationship between their sexuality and their faith.

  • WARNING: GENITAL WARTS CAN SUDDENLY APPEAR DURING PREGNANCY; CBCD REVIEWS THE MEDICAL EVIDENCE

    21/Oct/2015 // 1313 Viewers

    “Women can present for the first time with obvious genital warts in pregnancy even though the HPV may have been in the genital area for many years before.” (1)

    A woman's immune system is usually weakened during pregnancy. Dr. Mitchell wrote in an article that “pregnancy is a relatively immune compromised state and so women can present for the first time with obvious genital warts in pregnancy even though the HPV may have been in the genital area for many years before. The genital warts tend to grow rapidly in pregnancy and in severe cases can extensively cover the vulva and vagina. The safest option for treatment in this case is to burn or cauterise the warts. This can be done safely by injecting the vulva and vagina with some lidocaine to make this a relatively painless procedure. In some cases repeated cauterisation has to be done since the warts can regrow after treatment. The cervix should also be examined at the time of cauterisation of the vulval warts by doing a colposcopy. This shows a detailed visualisation of the cervix to determine if there is involvement by the human papilloma virus and to rule out early abnormal changes that can lead to cervical cancer.” (1) Dr Sharmaine Mitchell is an obstetrician and gynaecologist writing for the Jamaican Observer. 

    If a person suspects an infection with the HPV virus, The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that this individual set a doctor's appointment and get checked. In addition, the Center recommends taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin before becoming pregnant. Women should stop taking these products during pregnancy, and should resume once they have given birth. The formula of Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin was shown to reduce symptoms associated with HPV infection in two separate post-marketing studies that followed FDA guidelines. Additionally, the formula of these products was designed to help the immune system target the latent form of the HPV. 

    The formula of Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the HPV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the HPV…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (2) The study authors also wrote that “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (2)

    Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

    Once infected, if warts do show up, they will most often appear on moist surfaces. These are especially at the entrance of the vagina and rectum in women. “In men and women, they can appear anywhere in the genital or anal area. They may be small, flat, flesh-colored bumps or tiny, cauliflower-like bumps. Individual warts usually measure 1 millimeter to 2 millimeters in diameter – much smaller than the diameter of a pencil eraser – but clusters can be quite large. In some cases, warts can be so small that you can't see them. Genital warts may not cause any symptoms, or they may cause itching, burning, tenderness or pain.” (3)

    Are there treatments available against the HPV?

    “There are no drugs approved against the HPV. Current treatments include procedures, such as cryotherapy, conization, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP). These procedures use liquid nitrogen, a surgical knife (scalpel), a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, or electrical current to remove the abnormal growths caused by the HPV. These growths include cells that harbor the active virus. The procedures do not target cells with the latent virus. Since they do not remove the latent virus, these procedures only produce a temporary remission.” (2) In contrast, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR were designed to target the latent HPV.

    “We recommend that individuals infected with the latent HPV virus take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin. When a woman becomes pregnant, she should stop taking these products. She may resume once she has given birth.” - Greg Bennett, CBCD

  • Working hard to get pregnant? UK experts recommend red wine

    21/Oct/2016 // 338 Viewers

     

    A glass of red wine a day could help women who are struggling to get pregnant, experts claim.
     
    A chemical compound found in the popular tipple can combat a major cause of female infertility, new research has revealed.

    Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is estimated to affect one in five women, but that number could be much higher as almost half of sufferers show no symptoms of the condition.

    It causes a hormone imbalance, with the body producing too much testosterone – the male sex hormone which can prevent pregnancy.

    But now, researchers in the United States and Poland believe resveratrol – a natural compound in the skin of grapes used to make red wine – can reverse the damaging hormone imbalance.

    It adds to past studies that show the compound can help ward off heart disease and some cancers.

    Dr Antoni Duleba, lead researcher from the University of California, San Diego, said: “Our study is the first clinical trial to find resveratrol significantly lowers PCOS patients’ levels of testosterone.

    “This nutritional supplement can help moderate the hormone imbalance that is one of the central features of PCOS.”

    What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?

    Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition – a leading cause of infertility in women.

    The three main features of the condition are:

    Irregular periods – which means your ovaries do not regularly release eggs
    Excess androgen – high levels of “male” hormones in the body, which can cause physical symptoms such as excess facial or body hair
    Polycystic ovaries – enlarged ovaries that contain fluid-filled sacs around the eggs
    If you have at least two of these features, it is likely you will be diagnosed with PCOS.

    Signs and symptoms include:

    irregular or no periods at all
    difficulty getting pregnant
    excessive hair growth, often on the face, chest and back
    weight gain
    oily skin or acne
    hair loss or thinning hair on the head
    Across the world, PCOS is one of the most common causes of infertility in women, the report, published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, noted.

    Women suffering PCOS can also suffer irregular periods, weight gain, acne and excess hair growth on the face and body, as well as chronic conditions including diabetes.

    Researchers believe it is resveratrol’s anti-inflammatory properties that help tilt the hormone imbalance back to optimum levels for conception.

    They tested 30 women with PCOS – giving half a placebo, while the other half took a resveratrol compound once a day for three months.

    Blood samples were examined at regular intervals to monitor each woman’s hormone levels.

    The researchers noted those women taking resveratrol showed falling levels of testosterone over the course of the trial.

    On average testosterone levels in this group of women fell by 23.1 per cent.

    That is compared to a 2.9 per cent fall in testosterone among those women taking the placebo.

    Dr Duleba said: “The findings suggest resveratrol can improve the body’s ability to use insulin and potentially lower the risk of developing diabetes.

    “The supplement may be able to help reduce the risk of metabolic problems common in women with PCOS.”

    He said his team also noted added benefits in the fall of other harmful hormones, and the body’s ability to control insulin in the resveratrol group, that was not seen in the women taking placebo.

Our breathing rates rise which in turn burns calories, which means that if you have sex just three times a week you can burn around 7,500 calories a year. That's the same as running 75 miles!

    3. Sex Helps Your Immune System.

    Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that their students who stated they had sex at least twice a week had higher levels of particular antibodies than those who had no sex at all.During sex, antigens like immunoglobulin A are released which are proven to fight the common cold and even flu! Even more good news: the more frequently you engage in sex the more antigens will be released and the healthier you  will get.

    4. Sex Lowers Your Blood Pressure.

    Even if its just a quickie, some forms of physical contact can improve your blood pressure significantly. A study conducted by the University of Paisley found that sex reduces diastolic blood pressure which is the bottom number on a blood pressure reading making us healthier all around!

    5. Sex Helps a Healthy Heart.

    As our bodies burn calories, it also improves our heart health. Researchers from the New England Research Institute found that men are 45% less likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases if they have regular sex.

    6. Sex Helps Pain Relief.

    If youre experiencing aches, pains or migraines then sex may be a better form of pain relief than pills! Arthritis specialist Dr. George Erlich conducted a study on his patients and found that those who had sex often experienced significantly less pain than their counterparts who went without.

    7. Sex Ensures Regular Periods.

    If your periods are a bit erratic, it could be down to a stressful lifestyle. As mentioned previously, sex reduces stress and so will also have an impact on your menstrual cycle!

    9. Sex Reduces The Risk Of Cancer.

    Particularly for men, regular sex reduces the chances of developing cancer. In an Australian study published the Journal of the American Medical Association, it was found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month were much less likely to suffer form prostate cancer.

    10. Sex Makes You Sleep Well.

    Like exercise, sex increases your heart rate which leads to relaxation. In addition to this, its common knowledge that male ejaculation leads to lethargy which can make men extremely sleepy after sex.

    Having sex three times a week can apparently make you appear 10 years younger than your real age! In his book Secrets of the Superyoung, Scottish researcher and clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, David Weeks states: Its good for you to have good sex. What more incentive do you need?
