Become Psoriasis Free For Life

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease and affects around 7.5 million people in the United States.
It will cause red, dry patches of skin and inflammation. Psoriasis is not contagious but can be inherited.
The most common type is plaque psoriasis, which will give you red skin and silvery scales.

The second most common form of psoriasis is guttate psoriasis, leaving you with salmon pink or red drops on your skin. This can be on a large part of the body, and some require treatment, while others can go away by itself in a few weeks.

Inverse psoriasis will give you red, smooth patches in the folds of the skin. This can be in the armpits, under the buttocks, by the genitals, under the breasts, or in the abdominal folds. This can get worse from sweating and skin rubbing together where the skin folds. These moist areas can be the beginning of yeast and other fungal infections.

Nail psoriasis will affect the toenails and the fingernails. Most people will also have another type of skin psoriasis. The nail can have a yellow red color change as if there is a drop of blood under the nail.

There can also be little pits in the nail from losing cells from the nail’s surface. The nail bed can become infected and start to crumble. It is not contagious but when left untreated, it can become a functional and social problem.

The least common type is erythrodermic psoriasis but can be very serious. A very large part of the body is bright red and inflamed, as it is overgrown with a red, peeling rash. This will normally give an itchy or burning feeling and require therapy or medications and light therapy.

To prevent or stop infections, antibiotics can be used. As this is a serious condition, some people might need to go to the hospital for treatment. Most doctors will send you home with allergy medication such as creams and pills that will only mask the problem.

Stop Hypothyroidism Problems

Hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. This will affect the metabolic processes of the body. Women will have more problems with it than men, especially when they get older. Low thyroid hormone levels will lower metabolism, but also increase the risk of other health problems such as heart disease and pregnancy problems.

Autoimmune thyroiditis is an inherited condition and is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in adults. It is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks its own thyroid gland. Sub-acute thyroiditis is a condition where the thyroid produces an excess of thyroid hormones, which will be followed by a hypothyroid phase. The thyroid function will return to normal after a while.

Symptoms of hypothyroidism depend on the duration and extent of the hormone deficiency, but can be weakness; muscle aching and cramps; fatigue; weight gain or difficulty losing weight; poor appetite; intolerance to cold; constipation; memory loss; dry, rough skin; depression; irregular or even heavy menstrual periods; hair loss; increased cholesterol levels; eye and face swelling; slow mental activity; and a deeper or cracked voice.

To find out what causes hypothyroidism, a laboratory examination is needed. With this test the blood levels will be measured of the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH); T4 and T3 thyroid hormones; and the thyroid auto-antibodies. The thyroid stimulating hormone measurement is the most accurate test for the diagnosis of hypothyroidism.
The presence of thyroid antibodies indicates autoimmune thyroiditis, also known as Hashimoto’s Disease.

A normal treatment of hypothyroidism is a life-long therapy, with only a few exceptions.

Most people are treated with a synthetic form of the T4 thyroid hormone because this is a more stable form of thyroid hormone and is only required once a day. For hypothyroidism sufferers it is important to have a good after treatment, as the body is sensitive to small changes in thyroid hormone levels.

After a change, TSH and free T4 levels should be measured within two months.

The symptoms are completely reversible and even easily treated naturally in almost every case, using a step-by-step process for treating the problem at its source.

Eliminate Snoring Once And For All

Too many people have experience with a partner that is snoring, and keeping them awake most of the night. It is not only man who are snoring, women can snore also, although not so much or not so loud. The snorer will not have much problems with it, while the other person can have a lot of problems from waking up several times at night.

Snoring is caused by soft tissues at the back of the nose and throat that start to vibrate. This comes from air going through small air openings.

Snoring is not a disease in any way, but it can be very annoying for other persons in the same room. However, there can be a problem from the soft tissues as they can block the air ways, making it harder, or even impossible to breath.

Snoring is very common in people who are obese, while post-menopausal women also snore more. It seems that family history and genetics are causing it. Medical conditions, like sinus infections, nasal tumors, hypothyroidism, allergies and colds, are also enhancing the chance of snoring. A swelling of the area at the base of the tongue can also cause snoring.

When you go to sleep, the soft tissues of the throat, and the tongue, can form a blockage preventing air from going into your lungs. This negative pressure during inhaling will close your airway even more tightly. To get air into your lungs, you must wake up for a moment, or move to stop the soft tissues from closing your airway. As this can happen several times at night, you won’t have a peaceful sleep.

As you snore more when you sleep on your back, you should try not to sleep on your back. This sounds easier than it is, but with a few pillows next to you, it might work.

Losing weight is not only good for your overall health, but can also help to relieve snoring.

Using medication or drinking alcohol before you go to bed, can increase snoring as it relaxes the muscles in your throat, causing an airway blockage.

Although many people won’t notice their snoring problem, the other person in your bed will notice it.
This can have a negative effect on your relationship, work, study, or cause other health problems, such as depression, stress, high blood pressure, or even heart problems.

Cure Sleep Apnea Without CPAP

Sleep apnea is a condition noticed by a repeated reduction in, or a complete stop of breathing while sleeping. There are two known types of sleep apnea; the common obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and the less common central sleep apnea (CSA). This stopping of breathing can take 10 seconds or even more resulting in 25% less airflow than normal.

About 25% of people have central sleep apnea; the brain doesn’t send a signal to the respiratory muscles to bring air into the lungs. Up to 4% of people have obstructive sleep apnea; the brain does send a signal, but the air flow into the lungs is blocked, causing less breath going into the lungs. More men than women have this problem and it will be more common with older people.

Sleep apnea can cause insomnia, memory problems, headaches, tiredness during the day, concentration problems, anxiety, bad temper, and problems during work due to bad concentration. Sleep apnea can also lead to a higher chance of having a car accident or an accident at the workplace. In fact, apnea sufferers have a three times higher chance of having an accident, caused by sleepiness.

If sleep apnea is left untreated, it can lead to other health problems, such as heart failure, high blood pressure, diabetes, liver damage, kidney failure, heart disease, strokes, and even death.

Central sleep apnea might be caused by medication, strokes, heart failure, or even high altitude. Obstructive sleep apnea can be caused by narrow airway passages, nasal congestion, vocal cord injury, enlarged tonsils, upper
respiratory infections, obesity and weight gain, medication, use of alcohol, and smoking.

Most of the time, doctors will prescribe a treatment with CPAP: continuous positive airway pressure. It is a breathing machine that pushes air into the airways with adjustable intensities and pressures. Research has proven that half of the CPAP users will stop within 3 months, and are looking for an alternative treatment. Most apnea sufferers get problems from using their breathing mask, such as dry mouth; nasal congestion; sinus problems; ear pressure; headaches; and even claustrophobia.

A simple step to improve your sleep is trying to sleep on your side, instead of on your back. Also, try not to eat too late, especially before you go to bed. Do not drink too much alcohol, because alcohol will relax the muscles in your throat more than usual. For the same reason don’t use drugs before bedtime. Try not to smoke because smoking reduces oxygen levels in your blood and strains your heart, and will contribute to sleep apnea.

If you are overweight, you should lose weight as it has shown to be important in the treatment of apnea. In fact, your weight can be the cause of your sleep apnea. Losing weight and stop smoking are the 2 most important things you can do to stop sleep apnea.

Exercises will improve your health but should be avoided late in the evening. Raising your bed a little bit to an incline position can help you to keep your airways open.

Research has proven that people with sleep apnea have worse symptoms when they sleep flat on their back.
As you stop breathing during your sleep, sleep apnea can eventually kill you.

But there is an alternative to the CPAP treatment. Like almost any other health condition, getting rid of your sleep apnea takes time and, most importantly, you need to have commitment to the treatment.

Most people who used this treatment got rid of their sleep apnea within 6 months, sometimes even within 3 months.
The ebook “Cure your sleep apnea without CPAP” contains 78 pages of information with effective alternative treatments, with 7 types of treatments that have proved to stop sleep apnea.

You get 12 action steps for each treatment, to make sure you know exactly what to do to benefit from that treatment. You also get 7 quick fix treatments that you can already use for a better sleep tonight.
