What The Heck Are Hemorrhoids Anyway???

I’ll tell you what you AREN’T…

They aren’t from THIS:

And they aren’t from this:

What ARE Those Nasty Purple Bleeding Things Coming Out of My BUTT???

Hemorrhoids are simply enlarged (sometimes super enlarged) varicose veins of the butt.

(Which is why the oil blend remedy is goof for varicose veins too).

Sometimes they are on the inside and sometimes on the outside of your rectal area (sorry.. this subject requires talking about those forbidden nether regions)…

Sometimes they bleed and sometimes they don’t.

Sometimes they hurt and itch and sometimes they don’t.

But the “BOTTOM LINE” (he he) is that they are absolutely terrible.

There are a number of reasons that might make them come out, including constipation, diarrhea, a bad diet, wiping too hard (you should really be using water and washing rather than wiping anyway), pushing when pooping (sorry for the grossness)… and other reasons…

The standard treatment for hemorrhoids (which are also known as “piles”) is first gels or creams (to reduce the inflammation and hopefully the swelling), a fibrous diet, sitz baths, sometimes laxatives, suppositories, and, if all else fails, surgery.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO STOPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!

You don’t have to have surgery!!!!

And, sometimes fiber can make it worse.. so eating properly is important, but what you eat might not be what you think.

But, most importantly.. use the essential oil blend and cleansing protocol that I am about share with you…

BUT WHY ME???????

Why Do We Get These Nasty Buggers???

There are a number of reasons that people might get piles…
Many pregnant women get them because of the strain of the weight of the baby and the constipation that sometimes comes along with being pregnant.

Other women get them on the delivery table.. for obvious reasons (to anyone who has ever had a baby)… from pushing.. sometimes other things get pushed out too, including veins.

People who are chronically constipated or chronically have diarrhea often get them more.

Sometimes they just come for no apparent reason at all…

They are miserable, itchy, painful, sometimes bloody.. and just plain gross!!!

The Recipe for the Cure

Yes.. it is a cure type of remedy… not only for relief… although it gives that too 🙂

My Own Personal Recipe for to get rid of hemorrhoids forever:

Cypress Pure Essential Oil
Pure Olive Oil

OR

Cypress Pure Essential Oil
Calendula Infused Oil

You can add some geranium oil in too if you like.. that makes this amazing recipe even better…

What else will you need?

Common Bar Soap

(Yeah, can you believe that is all there is????)

How to Do It

Every time you go to the bathroom (yeah.. why are we using potty talk here? … oh well) after you’re done you will need to wash with bar soap and water, and then dry very well.

Take 10 ml (or around 1/3 oz or 2 teaspoons of olive oil or calendula oil) and mix it with 3 or 4 drops of cypress oil (if you are using the geranium oil you will use slightly less of the cypress).

Blend well, and keep in a dedicated dropper bottle or any other covered closed glass bottle type container, preferably not clear (because essential oils will evaporate if left in a clear container or in heat or the sun.

Use the oil blend immediately after drying every time you go to the bathroom for a B. Movement (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, leave a message below..)

Here are some links to the oils that you will need for this remedy:

 

cypress oil

Geranium Oil

 

Water Is Important, Too, For Helping You To Avoid The Big H or Anal Fissures

Drink plenty of water and better yet, drink ionized alkaline water

As our visitor said… water is important and ionized water is amazing.

There have been many scientific studies about this type of water, and all of the hype is actually true.

Yes, the machines that make the alkaline ionized water can sometimes be priced rather high…

So I have chosen one of the most highly rated, that happens to be one of the least expensive (and safest)…

Even better… when you look at the health benefits (and it’s not only good for reducing enlarged veins and anal fissures), you will see that a water ionizer (which makes both alkaline and acid water) can be an amazing addition to your life in general, for all types of health issues that you might be suffering from.

So, it’s not just about drinking water, but also about cleaning water, cleaning food (the acid water can clean anything and de-germ faster than any other product, plus, the best part of all – no chemicals!!!!

You can even use this special water in the washing machine!

I have a friend who has one of these and absolutely adores it.

This is my dream machine… 🙂

I am saving up to get one.. they are just that awesome.

Eating For Relief

Eating Right Can Help You To Get Rid of Them Forever….

If you suffer from piles or fissures, you are going to want to make sure that your bowel movements are as healthy as possible.

I know this subject isn’t very nice to talk about, but I am going to do it anyway to help all those people out there who are suffering.

You need to know that you don’t need to suffer!

There is a way to help yourself.

Rules:

Stay away from junk

Eat as naturally as you can

Eat veggies and a very small amount of fruit (if anything, none is probably better)

Don’t eat TOO much fiber, because then you could go the other way and make it worse!

Make sure your fiber is always balanced with protein and fat…

Eat plenty of protein and FAT (Yes.. fat!).. but only healthful fats like butter, tallow, olive oil coconut oil, and a few others.

Stay away from soda and other sugary drinks (and preferably stay away from diet drinks, too)…

Stay away from ALL refined carbohydrates (white bread, white rice, cookies, cake, etc.) (as much as possible)…

 

Steak Dinner

Fight Constipation

Constipation is one of the things that can bring the veins out…

Constipation can also cause a fissure..

Neither of these are fun to have.

They bleed, they sting, they itch, and they are generally horrible and miserable.

If you are suffering and you are constipated, it is better not to put more pressure on the area.

This is particularly true for those people who don’t want to follow a diet.

There is an easy, pretty much non chemical way to get rid of constipation on the spot.

You can use glycerin suppositories.

While I know this isn’t a comfortable situation and no one wants to be constipated or have problems like these… but, sometimes things are not in our control…

This goes the same for young children and babies…they can get anus problems and inflammation too.

But, just make an effort to use these only in the case of emergencies..

 

sitz bath

Sitz Baths For The Soothing Effect

Sitz bath

 

Sitz baths are soothing and healing for the anal area…

Sitz baths are great for easing the pain and itching.

The sitz bath will help soothe the sensitive area and sometimes can even help to get rid of the piles once and for all.

All you have to do is fill the bathtub or a small roundish tub that you can easily sit in with hot to warm water (as hot as you can stand or less.. but not cold).

Then you can add various natural things like……

Epsom salts

Sea salt

Lavender Essential Oil

Cyprus Essential Oil

Geranium Essential Oil

Tea Tree Essential Oil

 

Dr Teals Soaking Salt

All of these are really great choices, and will definitely work to help you to feel much better….

Sitz baths are pretty easy to make.. watch these pointers now…

Yes, This Is Serious Stuff

Let’s Talk….

So, if you suffer from hemorrhoids there is help for you….

So, refrain from jumping into surgery (which a lot of people do unnecessarily)…

You CAN get rid of them and it’s not really that difficult at all.

In fact, if you employ the advice above…. you should have relief in no time at all (literally one or two days usually)…

 Hammurabis Code

The Ancient History Of Hemorrhoids

(And I bet you didn’t know there even was an ancient history of them, did you?)

The first known mention of piles goes all the way back to approximately 2250 BC!!!!!

Mention of it is said to have appeared in Hamurrabi’s Code…

And that was a long, long time ago!

Ancient Egyptian Proctologists???

 

Ancient_Egyptian_medical_instruments

And If You’ve Got ‘Em, You Gotta Know There Is Going To Be Someone To Get Rid of Them..

Well.. maybe….

The fact is that remedies for such ailments have been mentioned since ancient Egyptian Pharoah times.

They even wrote about several different possible cures (like certain essential oils, for example).

How smart!

OOUCH!!!!!!!!

 

bizarre-cures-hemorrhoid-cauterized

Barbaric cures?

In ancient times one of the “cures” was to cauterize them…… .

In fact, they are still treated in that way… but in those days the people were awake and didn’t have any anesthetic!!!

Yikes!

 

ancient_hippocrates_guardianarchive

Hippocrates

Yes… Hippocrates was on the bandwagon too…..

Even Hippocrates had a special remedy of this own….

His cure was along the lines of the the ouchy ones (cutting and burning)…

Double Yikes!

 

 

Ancient Aloe Vera Cure

 

Dioscorides (ancient Rome) described a treatment using natural Aloe Vera gel straight from the leaf.

I do believe that I could go along with this one…

After all… there is practically nothing more soothing than aloe vera… right?

But, it would be kind of gloppy…..

That would be the only setback with this one….

 

 




How To Prevent Heart Problems

heart

 

It seems like every time we turn around we hear of someone we knew dying of a heart attack. Many of these people are quite young and, for them, heart disease is the last thing one would expect. Even for people getting up in age, dying suddenly of a heart attack, leaving a bereaved family to carry on is not what most people would choose for themselves or their loved ones. It’s true that there are a certain portion of heart attacks that occur due to obscure congenital problems (ones that people are born with). Those are the ones that are difficult to predict, and most of the time there is nothing that can be done to help people in those cases. But, there are many forms of heart disease that are easily preventable and treatable, once they are suspected or discovered. The problem is often the diagnosis in the first place. The problem is that often, until people are showing serious signs, heart disease remains hidden. That is one of the reasons that heart disease is called the silent killer.

 

While there are many times that heart disease doesn’t show itself clearly to us, there are also many times when it does. Sometimes we are aware and pick up on the signs and at other times we don’t realize or think it’s something else, and leave it undiscovered until more serious symptoms begin to appear. It’s important to know what the signs are. Always remember that what you don’t know CAN hurt you!

 

Signs to Look Out For (you may be having a heart attack or have heart disease):

 

  • Breathlessness at light exertion
  • Edema (fluid retention) around the ankles, wrists, feet, or other places
  • Fatigue or weakness – particularly after only light exertion
  • Tendency to feel faint (or to pass out)
  • Sudden breathlessness (without exertion)
  • Cyanosis (blue lips and nails)
  • Dizziness
  • Coughing or wheezing particularly if it is accompanied with white phlegm
  • Heart palpitations (rapid heartbeat, skipped beat, flip-flop heart)
  • Chest pain or tightness (with or without heavy or light exertion)
  • Pain or tightness in other areas, such as the shoulder, arm (particularly on the left side, but this could also occur on the right side), neck, abdomen, face, jaw, back, or stomach (with or without heavy or light exertion (this will feel something like a dull, gripping, squeezing, band-like pain or heavy feeling
  • Burning or severe tightness in the chest area (possibly radiating out to the arm, neck, jaw, shoulder, or back)
  • Sweating (with or without heavy or light exertion)
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Overall lack of appetite
  • Indigestion, heartburn, or a choking feeling
  • Anxious feeling
  • Confusion
  • Weight gain (particularly if it is rapid and unwarranted)

 

You must be aware of what is going on inside your body, and the above mentioned symptoms are particularly important to watch out for if you have not experienced them before, and are suddenly experiencing them for the first time, whether or not they get better with rest. You must also pay attention to whether or not these symptoms are brought on by stress, because with heart disease (or an impending heart attack) the symptoms can get worse when the person is under general stress or in a stressful situation.

 

There are some statistics that show that heart attacks occur more frequently between the hours of 4 AM and 10 AM, and are increased in the winter (particularly in northern areas of the globe). But this doesn’t mean that a person can’t have a heart attack at any time, in any place.

 

There are certain risk factors that are associated with heart disease and heart attacks. When these factors are present the likelihood of a heart attack or heart disease being present are increased a great deal (although the presence of these factors doesn’t mean that you will have a heart attack or heart disease, it certainly increases your chances). Thus, if you can associate any or all of these factors with yourself, you really need to reduce or eradicate as many of them as possible, as quickly as possible. Remember these are things that you can change if you want to!

 

Risk Factors:

 

  • Being overweight (particularly severely)
  • Smoking (or other form of nicotine addiction, like chewing tobacco, etc) Even nicotine replacement products (like those kits that help you quit smoking) can increase your risk
  • Alcohol abuse (here in Kuwait this isn’t a huge problem, since alcohol is banned here but Westerners take note!
  • If you are on certain medications that have been associated with heart attacks or heart disease (such as Vioxx, Celebrex, or Aleve (which are promoted for the reduction of pain, particularly joint pain, rheumatism and arthritis)
  • Inactivity (if you don’t exercise regularly)

 

There are also several health factors that may make heart attacks and heart disease more likely:

 

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • If you are a male (sorry guys!)
  • You have a family history of heart attacks or heart disease
  • You are a post menopausal female (sorry ladies!)
  • Age (the older you get the more likely)
  • You are highly stressed or often angry
  • Accumulation of body fat around the midsection area
  • Gout
  • If you have ever suffered from rheumatic fever in your life

 

All of these factors are important and many of them are completely reversible. You don’t necessarily have to suffer from a heart attack or heart disease. But you do have to be careful. These are factors associated with an increased risk, so be aware!

 

The bottom line is if and when you suffer from chest pain for no apparent reason (you haven’t just fallen from the top of a four story building or gotten in a fight with Mohammad Ali, etc), particularly if this pain lasts for more than 15 minutes you need to get medical help immediately. If your pain is accompanied by any of the other symptoms mentioned above, you need to hurry. There is no need to wait to see what will happen. It might already be too late. Heart attacks kill swiftly.

 

Knowing the symptoms of heart disease isn’t really enough to do in order to save your self from the dangers of getting heart disease or having a heart attack. You really have to do whatever you can to prevent getting ill in the first place. While it is true that some people have a genetic predisposition to this problem, this in itself doesn’t mean that the person is going to get the disease for sure, and even those people who have several family members that have died from or suffer from heart problems don’t have to consider themselves impossible to help. Almost everyone can be helped. But, action must be taken. You really can’t sit back, do nothing and expect miracles.

 

If you are one of those unlucky people who have a strong genetic link to heart disease, then prevention for you could mean the difference between life and death. If you already suffer from heart problems, it still isn’t too late to prevent further damage, and, in certain cases, you may even be able to reverse your damage. It is possible to do that, and research has shown that it can be done. The question is what is it that you have to do, and are you willing to do it?

 

Dietary changes are important steps to improving your chances against heart disease. If you are overweight this is particularly dangerous, and must be taken care of as quickly as you can. The people who are in the most danger with regards to weight are those who have a spare tire of fat right around the midsection. Particularly those who have bodies that are proportioned like apples, with more weight around the upper body, and less at the bottom, but this doesn’t mean that all overweight people aren’t at risk, because they really are. The good news though is that you can reverse the effects of obesity on your heart by simply losing weight! So, even if you are only slightly overweight, you should really get started on losing it as fast as you can. This can be done with diet and exercise.

 

The heart health diet is the same as practically every other healthy whole foods diet. Eat plenty of fresh, healthy proteins (you can have red meats too, but everything must be in moderation and not altered by preservation methods, like curing, salting, etc). Eggs are not a no-no if you are on a heart healthy diet, but with everything you do, eat in moderation. Don’t overdo any food in particular, no matter how healthy it is supposed to me.

 

Be sure to have plenty of fresh whole fruits and vegetables, particularly vegetables. Stay away from corn, tomatoes, and starchy vegetables, and keep fruit intake low, and preferably concentrate on low glycemic fruit like berries. Blueberries are some of the best of all and contain so many good nutrients that they are considered a “super food”, but unfortunately they aren’t widely available in Kuwait, so unless you like frozen ones stick with fruit that is more available, like strawberries, for example. It is preferable to stay away from fruits and vegetables that are grown in far away places and from completely different climates than this one, and since we live in a desert region, fruit like oranges, bananas, etc are better left alone. You can get more vitamins and minerals from dates for the most part anyway.

 

Choose your cooking oils carefully as well. Corn oil isn’t the best choice, even though it is of vegetable origin. It is better to choose coconut or palm oil for hot cooking (like deep frying, etc),or even better tallow, and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is the best choice for cold oil use (like for salads, etc).

 

Whole grains are an important part of your daily diet. Note the part where I say “whole”. This means that white refined flour isn’t one of those things that you should allow yourself to have. Have whole wheat, whole barley, whole oats, etc. There are many other grains available in the market as well, and if you’ve never tried them before, now is the time to experiment. You can make pilafs with them, use them as additives for soups, bake with them, and more. Just use your imagination and cook! But, remember, if you are overweight and need to lose a lot of weight, it is easier to lose weight if you cut down on your carbohydrates a fair amount. So, for those who are considered obese, stick with your proteins and non-starchy vegetables until you have lost most of your weight, and then you can begin to add in more carbohydrates again later.

 

An important part of any weight loss program is exercise. This is even more important for those who suffer from heart problems. But, with heart problems you must be very careful to do the type of exercise that is conducive to a healthy circulatory system, and weight loss without overdoing it. If you exercise too strenuously you could even cause yourself a heart attack or angina (which is when your chest hurts and you can’t breathe well), so moderation is the key here. Moderately paced walking or swimming are always the best choices when it comes to heart problems or preventing them. Other more strenuous forms of exercise could also be fine for some, depending on whether or not they already suffer from any kind of heart problem. Join a good gym if you don’t like to be outside, and, here in Kuwait, the heat is often too much for people to take, particularly in the middle of the summer months here where it can get into the 50’s (centigrade)! If you like to walk, go to the mall. It’s air-conditioned there and there are long walkways that you can go around in, but don’t stop too often to window shop! Bicycle riding, trampoline, and any other mildly aerobic sports, done in moderation are going to be great for you! So get out there and start taking action right away!

 

These are just a few of the simple things that people can do for heart disease prevention and even to help reverse the damage that heart disease does. If you know that you have a family history of heart problems or if you are suffering from heart problems already, do something right away. You will be able to help yourself and save your family from the deep sadness that they will feel when you are gone.
