Description

Chikungunya is a growing health concern across the world. A personmay contract the chikungunya virus through the bite of an infectedmosquito. The defining characteristic of Chikungunya is the extremejoint pain it causes, and although the infection itself only lastsfor between two and twelve days, the joint pain can last forseveral months. Thankfully, this disease is preventable as certainprecautionary measures can be taken to prevent the mosquito biteswhich cause the illness.Mosquito PopulationsKnow that chikungunyafever is contracted through mosquito bites. The virus that causeschikungunya fever is from the genus Alphavirus. This virus istransmitted to humans through mosquito bites, most commonly thoseof the Aedes aegypti mosquito.[2] Aside from chikungunya, the Aedesaegypti mosquito can transmit other diseases such as dengue andyellow fever. The Aedes aegypti mosquito can easily be identifiedby the unique white markings on its legs and body. Originally, thismosquito was only found in Africa, but now it is found insubtropical and tropical regions across the globe. The mosquito isattracted to human blood by certain chemical compounds emitted bythe body, such as ammonia, lactic acid, carbon dioxide, andoctenol.Behavior of mosquitoThe Aedes aegypti mosquito is known tobe more active during the early and late hours of the day. However,these mosquitoes can bite at any time of the day and in any season.In addition to this, Aedes aegypti is more common in dark, shadyareas, and indoors The most common breeding area of Aedes aegyptiis stagnant water. This includes the water found in flower vases,discarded tires, buckets, uncovered barrels, bottles, and others.The lifespan of Aedes aegypti may last up to one month. However,its eggs are resistant to cold and heat. Thus, these mosquitoes caneasily make a comeback after the summer and winter.Target breedinggroundOne of the best ways to protect yourself from chikungunyavirus is to go directly to the mosquito's breeding grounds andeliminate as many mosquitoes and eggs as possible. The most commonbreeding area for the Aedes aegypti mosquito is standing water.Therefore, the first step is to empty any open containers of wateraround your home. Next, look for any possible reservoirs of wateraround your home or backyard that may serve as a place formosquitoes to reproduce. This may include discarded tires, flowervases, cans, bottles, rain gutters, drums, and more.Cleaning aroundyour homeIt should be noted that female Aedes aegypti are attractedto the scent of bacteria found in stagnant water, so when you cleanyour surroundings, there will be less stagnant water and thereforefewer mosquitoes. Cleanliness is the key to destroying the homes ofmosquitoes, therefore you should make sure that you clean yourwater drainage system. Also keep in mind that stagnant rivers,creeks, or canals may also serve as a breeding ground for thesemosquitoes. In the event that a creek or river is filled withplants or garbage to the point that the water cannot flow anymore,make a concerted effort with your community to implement a clearingprogram which will get the water flowing again.Add some fish topondsFish are great for keeping mosquitoes under control. Sinceponds and other still bodies of water may attract Aedes aegypti,adding fish to the water will help to decrease the number ofmosquito eggs and larvae as they will be eaten by the fish. Thismethod may serve as a long-term solution for mosquito control. Themost common type of fish that feeds on mosquitoes is the Gambusiaaffinis, better known as the mosquitofish. Other fish may includeminnow, carp, tilapia, and killfish. You should also promotepopulations of other animals that prey on mosquitoes. This includeslizards, geckos, dragonflies, frogs, birds, bats, and others.

Prevent Kidney Stones | How to tips and tricks 1.2.1 APK
Kidney stones, which are also known as renal lithiasis or calculi,are solid deposits that originate in the kidney. Initially, thesedeposits are microscopic; however, they can grow into largerstones. Kidney stone prevention is important, because these tinystones can result in excruciating pain as they descend from yourkidneys to your bladder. In some instances, kidney stones becomelodged in the ureter and block the flow of urine. Fortunately,making the correct dietary decisions can prevent the development ofkidney stones, especially if you fall into a higher-riskcategory.Identifying Risk FactorsAsk close relatives if they havehad kidney stones. You are at greater risk for developing stones iffamily members have experienced kidney stones. Studies show thatkidney stones appear to be more common in people with Asian andCaucasian backgrounds than for Native Americans, Africans, orAfrican Americans.Watch your weight.Research suggests that peoplewith a high body mass index and larger waist sizes are at greaterrisk for the development of kidney stones. Body weight, not diet orfluid intake, appears to be the greatest risk factor for kidneystones. Eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise to reduceyour weight and your risk.Consider age and genderMen between 30 and50 years old and postmenopausal women are the most likely to getkidney stones.Medical conditionsCertain surgical procedures andmedical conditions increase your risk of kidney stones. Theseinclude: Gastric bypass or other intestinal surgery Urinary tractinfections Inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn's disease Chronicdiarrhea Renal tubular acidosis Hyperparathyroidism InsulinresistanceDifferent kidney stonesThere are four different kinds ofkidney stones. The first step in being able to prevent kidneystones is knowing what causes them. Different kidney stones arecaused by different lifestyle factors and diet decisions. Calciumstones. Calcium stones come in two forms: calcium oxalate stonesand calcium phosphate stones. Calcium oxalate stones are the mostcommon form of kidney stone. Calcium stones are often caused byhigh sodium intake. Uric acid stones. Uric acid stones form whenurine is very acidic, and are often because the patient has a diethigh in animal protein (meat, fish, shellfish). Struvite stones.These are usually caused by kidney infections. Staying free ofinfection can usually stop struvite stones. Cystine stones. Theseare formed when cystine leaks into the kidneys, resulting instones. Cystine stones are caused by a genetic disorder.DietDrinkplenty of water. You may have heard the “eight glasses a day” rule,but research suggests that you may actually need more than that.The Institute of Medicine recommends that men drink about 13 cups(three liters) of fluids per day. Women should drink about ninecups (2.2 liters) of fluids per day. If you’re sick or you exercisea lot, you’ll need to drink more. Water is the best choice.Drinking a half-cup of fresh-squeezed lemon juice daily raises thecitrate levels in your urine, which can help reduce your risk ofdeveloping calcium kidney stones. Experts no longer recommendorange juice, as it raises oxalate levels. Be cautious withgrapefruit juice, apple juice, and cranberry juice. Several studieshave linked grapefruit juice to an increased risk of kidney stones,although not all studies agree. Apple and cranberry juice bothcontain oxalates, which are linked to the development of kidneystones. Cranberry juice may increase your risk for calcium oxalateand uric acid stones. However, it may help prevent the less-commontypes of stones, such as struvite and brushite stones, and it’sgood for overall kidney function. Talk with your doctor aboutwhether consuming these juices is a good idea for you.
Cure Ulcer - Natural Home Remedies Treatment 1.2.2 APK
Stomach ulcers, also known as gastric ulcers, are open sores withinthe lining of the stomach. They are a type of peptic ulcer, meaninghaving to do with acid. Because of the amount of acid present inthe stomach and the damage that can occur, they are often extremelypainful.Additional Tags: ulcer diet, burning stomach, stomach ulcerdiet, burning in stomach, esophageal ulcer, peptic ulcer diet, dietfor ulcers, ulcer medication, home remedies for ulcers, bleedingulcers, burst ulcer, bleeding ulcer treatment, symptoms of bleedingulcer, how to get rid of ulcers, esophagus ulcer, stress ulcers,quick ulcer pain relief, can stress cause ulcers, home remedies forstomach ulcers, how to cure stomach ulcer permanently, foods toavoid with ulcers, natural remedies for ulcers, how to heal anulcer, what to eat when you have an ulcer, does stress causeulcers, stomach ulcer medication, signs of stomach bleeding,ruptured ulcer, ulcer remediesThe most common cause of stomachulcers is the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, or H. pylori. Ulcersmay also be caused by overuse of painkillers, such as aspirin(Bayer), and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), suchas ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Naprosyn). Stomach ulcersare treated with antibiotics and medications to reduce and blockstomach acid. In addition to this well-proven treatment plan,research has shown that there are also some natural home remediesthat may be useful in managing a stomach ulcer and helping it heal.Talk with your doctor about adding these foods to yourdiet.FlavonoidsResearch suggests that flavonoids, also known asbioflavonoids, may be an effective additional treatment for stomachulcers. Flavonoids are compounds that occur naturally in manyfruits and vegetables. Foods and drinks rich in flavonoids include:soybeans legumes red grapes kale broccoli apples berries teas,especially green tea These foods may also help the body fightagainst the H. pylori bacteria. Flavonoids are referred to as“gastroprotective,” which means they defend the lining of thestomach and could allow ulcers to heal. There are no side effectsof consuming flavonoids in the amount found in a typical diet, buthigher amounts of flavonoids may interfere with blood clotting. Youcan get flavonoids in your diet or take them assupplements.Deglycyrrhizinated licoriceDon’t let that long firstword give you a stomach ache. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice is justplain old licorice with the sweet flavor extracted. One studyshowed that deglycyrrhizinated licorice might help ulcers heal byinhibiting the growth of H. pylori. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice isavailable as a supplement. You can’t get this effect from eatinglicorice candy, though. Too much licorice candy can be bad for somepeople. Consuming more than 2 ounces daily for more than two weekscan make existing heart problems or high blood pressureworse.ProbioticsProbiotics are the living bacteria and yeast thatprovide healthy and important microorganisms to your digestivetract. They are present in many common foods, particularlyfermented foods. These include: buttermilk yogurt miso kimchi kefirYou can also take probiotics in supplement form. Studies have shownthat probiotics may be helpful in wiping out H. pylori andincreasing recovery rate for people with ulcers when added to thetraditional regimen of antibiotics.HoneyHoney is far from simplysweet. Depending on the plant it’s derived from, honey can containup to 200 elements, including polyphenols and other antioxidants.Honey is a powerful antibacterial and has been shown to inhibit H.pylori growth. As long as you have normal blood sugar levels, youcan enjoy honey as you would any sweetener, with the bonus ofperhaps soothing your ulcers.

Thereare more non-smoking women who die from lung cancer each year thannon-smoking and smoking women combined from breast cancer. And eventhough you may have heard optimistic reports that lung cancer isdeclining, the news isn’t all so good. Lung cancer is increasingsignificantly for one group: young, never-smoking women. There aremany risk factors for lung cancer, some of which are avoidable, butthat doesn’t mean you have to hide in a bubble. There are actuallysome things you can add to your life to reduce your risk.Certainly, exercise has been shown to make a difference, but whatyou put in your mouth is important as well.

In other words, morewas better. The intake of total flavonoids, flavonols, flavones,and flavanones, as well as the flavonols quercetin and kaempferolwas significantly associated with a decreased risk ofsmoking-related cancer. For those who have never smoked, one ofthese compounds, called flavanones, also lowered risk. While theentire apple is rich in these compounds, they are especiallyplentiful in the skins, so you may want to leave the peeler in thedrawer. Since apple skins are included in making apple cider, thismay be a better choice than apple juice if you wish to consume yourapples in liquid form. Add an apple a day to try keeping theoncologist away.GarlicIn the past, it was thought that garlic hadanticancer effects based on what researchers found in animals andthe lab. Recently, a study in China found that people who consumedraw garlic two or more times per week dropped their risk of lungcancer by 44 percent. The key may be eating garlic raw, as thecompound diallyl sulphide, thought to be responsible for theseeffects, is greatly decreased by cooking or pickling. Garlic hasbeen looked at for a possible role in health for treating highblood pressure, reducing cholesterol, and even warding off thecommon cold.BroccoliCruciferous vegetables like broccoli pack a bigpunch in the cancer reduction armory.
Syphilis treating and curing tips 1.2.2 APK
Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by a type ofbacteria known as Treponema pallidum. In 2013, more than 56,400cases of syphilis were reported in the United States. The rate ofwomen infected with syphilis has been declining in the UnitedStates, but the rate among men, particularly homosexual men, hasbeen rising. The first sign of syphilis is a small, painless sore.It can appear on your sexual organs, rectum, or inside your mouth.This sore is called a chancre. People often fail to notice it rightaway. Syphilis can be challenging to diagnose. You can be infectedwithout showing any symptoms for years. However, the earlier youdiscover the infection, the better. Syphilis that remains untreatedfor a long time can cause major damage to important organs, likethe heart and brain. Syphilis is only spread through direct contactwith syphilitic chancres. It can’t be transmitted by sharing atoilet with another person, wearing another person’s clothing, orusing another person’s eating utensils.Stages of SyphilisInfectionThe four stages of syphilis are: primary secondary latenttertiary Syphilis is most infectious in the first two stages. Whensyphilis is in the hidden, or latent, stage, the disease remainsactive but often with no symptoms and is not contagious to others.Tertiary syphilis is the most destructive to your health.PrimarySyphilisThe primary stage of syphilis occurs about three to fourweeks after you’re infected with the bacteria. It begins with asmall, round sore called a chancre. A chancre is painless, but it’shighly infectious. This sore may appear wherever the bacteriaentered your body, such as on or inside your mouth, genitals, orrectum. On average, the sore shows up around three weeks afterinfection, but it can take between 10 and 90 days to appear. Thesore remains for anywhere between two to six weeks. Syphilis istransmitted by direct contact with a sore. This usually occursduring sexual activity, including oral sex.Secondary SyphilisDuringthe second stage of syphilis, you may experience skin rashes and asore throat. The rash won’t itch and is usually found on your palmsand soles, but it may occur anywhere on the body. Some people don’tnotice the rash before it goes away. Other symptoms of secondarysyphilis may include: headaches swollen lymph glands fatigue feverweight loss hair loss aching joints These symptoms will go awaywhether or not you receive treatment. However, without treatmentyou’ll still be infected. Secondary syphilis is often mistaken foranother condition.Latent SyphilisThe third stage of syphilis is thelatent or hidden stage. The primary and secondary symptomsdisappear, and you won’t have any noticeable symptoms at thisstage. However, you will still be infected with syphilis. Thesecondary symptoms can reappear, or you could remain in this stagefor years before progressing to tertiary syphilis.Treating andCuring SyphilisPrimary and secondary syphilis are easy to treatwith a penicillin injection. Penicillin is one of the most widelyused antibiotics and is usually effective in treating syphilis.People who are allergic to penicillin will likely be treated with adifferent oral antibiotic, such as doxycycline, azithromycin, orceftriaxone. If you have neurosyphilis, you’ll get daily doses ofpenicillin intravenously. This will often require a brief hospitalstay. Unfortunately, the damage caused by late syphilis can’t bereversed. The bacteria can be killed, but treatment will mostlikely focus on easing pain and discomfort. During your treatment,make sure to avoid sexual contact until all sores on your body arehealed and your doctor tells you it’s safe to resume sex. If you’resexually active, your partner should be treated as well. Youshouldn’t resume sexual activity until both of your treatments arecomplete.
cold and flu treatment when pregnant 1.2.1 APK

Influenza—a severe respiratory illness that causes fever,cough and congestion—is not something to be trifled with. And it’snot to be confused with stomach flu, a distinct and less seriousinfection. As Laura Magee, Women who are pregnant and have the fluare at an increased risk of serious complications. And that list ofpotential repercussions includes pneumonia, kidney failure,swelling of the brain, premature labour and even death. Anestimated 10 to 20 percent of Canadians becomes infected withinfluenza each year, causing upwards of 12,000 hospitalizations and3,500 deaths. The good news is the vaccine is safe throughoutpregnancy. Be sure, however, to request the injection, which ismade from an inactivated virus, and not the nasal-spray vaccine, asthat’s made from a live virus and not recommended for use bypregnant women. While it can be impossible to ward off illnessespecially when, you can take steps to protect yourself. Get plentyof rest and wash your hands often throughout the day. If a lot ofyour colleagues are still coming in sick, ask if you can work fromhome.Know to dealYou’re sneezing, coughing and aching all over. Isit a cold or the flu? A cold is a mild respiratory illness, and thesymptoms typically coughing, sore throat and congestion tend toappear gradually. With influenza, the symptoms which include a sorethroat, loss of appetite, fever, congestion, cough and aches comeon quite suddenly. You could have a high fever for three or fourdays and extreme tiredness for several weeks. In contrast, feverand extreme exhaustion are less common with a cold. Children whohave the flu can experience nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, butthese symptoms are rare in adults. If you are enduring a variety ofunpleasant gastrointestinal issues, chances are you have thestomach flu, which is caused by other viruses or bacteria, notinfluenza.Care providerWhile most colds do not pose any risk for anunborn child, the flu should be taken more seriously. Pregnantwomen should contact their midwife or doctor if they have a feverthat lasts longer than two days, can’t keep food down or arecoughing excessively. It’s best to double-check with your careprovider immediately so you know exactly what you have and how tobest proceed. Most people with the flu become only mildly ill andstart to feel better in seven to 10 days. But if a case ofinfluenza is confirmed, and it’s early enough in its onset, you maybe prescribed an antiviral medicine, such as Tamiflu, whichshortens the duration of flu symptoms and has been shown to be safeduring pregnancy.Pick MedicationI find the biggest barrier totreating colds and flus is misinformation. There’s an idea outthere that pregnant women shouldn’t use any over-the-countermedication, so a lot of women suffer unnecessarily.

You and your doctor should worktogether to create a plan that describes the use of your asthmamedications, your triggers and how to avoid them, as well as whatto do when your asthma is flaring. Everyone will have a differentaction plan as everyone experiences asthma differently. Forinstance, if the person suffering from asthma is a student, hisaction plan would include permission to take his medicine atschool. The action plan should include emergency phone numbers, alist of triggers to avoid, flare-up symptoms and what to do whenthey appear, plus how to prepare before exercise so you don't havean attack.Additional tags: asthma symptoms, asthma attack, symptomsof asthma, asthma guidelines, bronchial asthma, nebulizertreatment, breathing treatment, signs of asthma, asthma attacksymptoms, asthma classification, home remedies for asthma, asthmasymptoms in adults, natural remedies for asthma, asthma homeremedies, types of asthma, asthma medication, asthma treatmentguidelines, asthma diagnosis, adult asthma, prednisone for asthma,asthma test, asthma cure, breathing treatments, asthma remedies,how to get rid of asthma, asthma relief, signs and symptoms ofasthma, nursing diagnosis for asthma, seasonal asthmaGet aprescriptionMedication is usually the foundation of asthmatreatment. Medication prescribed by your doctor can help keep thedisease under control and prevent asthma attacks. There are twotypes of oral and inhaled asthma medication your doctor mayprescribe, and most people take both at the same time:Anti-inflammatories that reduce swelling and mucus in your airways.This can make breathing easier. Bronchodilators that relax themuscles around your airways to improve breathing rate and theamount of oxygen in your lungs.Use an anti-inflammatoryOral orinhaled medications that control inflammation can be the mostimportant for a person with asthma. They reduce swelling and mucusin your airways and can help control or prevent asthma symptoms iftaken daily. Your doctor might prescribe an inhaled corticosteroidsuch as fluticasone, budesonide, ciclesonide, or mometasone. It maytake daily use over a longer period of time for these medicationsto have their full effect and they come with few side effects. Yourdoctor may prescribe leukotriene modifier such as montelukast,zafirlukast, or zileuton to help prevent and relieve symptoms forup to 24 hours. Use these drugs carefully, however, as they arelinked to psychological reactions including agitation andaggression. Fortunately, these reactions are rare. Your doctor mayalso give you a mast cell stabilizer such as cromolyn sodium ornedocromil sodium. For severe symptoms not controlled by othermethods, your doctor may prescribe short or long courses of oralsteroids. These have more possible side effects, so are only usedwhen other treatments aren't effective or when acute symptoms aresevere.Take a bronchodilatorBronchodilators come as short- orlong-term medications. Short-term bronchodilators, which are oftencalled rescue inhalers, relieve or stop symptoms and can helpduring attacks. Long-term bronchodilators help control symptoms andprevent attacks. For some people, pre-treating with medicationbefore exercise can reduce asthma symptoms caused by exercise. Yourdoctor might prescribe a long-acting beta agonist such assalmeterol or formoterol. These can open your airways, but may alsoincrease your risk of a severe asthma attack.

If you smoke, you shouldquit. If you don’t smoke, continue to stay away from cigarettes.This is an important step. Avoiding cigarettes is crucial, not onlyto prevent liver cancer, but smoking cigarettes negatively affectsyour whole body as well. Try to quit smoking by reducing yourcigarette consumption a little bit every day or by using cessationaids like nicotine patches. If you have trouble quitting smoking,contact your doctor for more support. If you don't smoke, stay awayfrom people who do. Second-hand smoke is bad for you and can leadto increased risk of liver cancer as well.Watch the level ofalcoholOver time, drinking large quantities of alcohol can lead tocirrhosis, or scarring, of the liver which can contribute to livercancer. Try to avoid drinking too much, specifically over longperiods of time. Binge drinking (having more than five drinks inone sitting) is especially damaging to your liver. Considercompletely eliminating alcohol to minimize the impact it may haveon your liver. To maintain your health, women can drink up to onedrink per day and men can drink up to two drinks per day. One drinkis considered 12 fluid ounces of beer, 5 fluid ounces of wine, or1.5 fluid ounces of distilled spirits. Don't get drunk just becauseyour peers persuade you into drinking. And don’t drink if you areunderage.Stay away from drugsCertain drugs can increase your riskof liver cancer. Your liver metabolizes any drug you ingest, soexposing your liver to potentially harmful drugs over long periodsof time could lead to developing liver cancer. One such risk factoris taking anabolic steroids like Anadrol, Oxandrin, or Winstrol.This also includes male hormones like testosterone.Cancer causingagentsExposure to certain chemicals greatly increases your risk ofcancer, especially in the liver. One of the main functions of theliver is to metabolize drugs and detoxify chemicals. So if you areexposed to cancer-causing chemicals, they will go straight to yourliver. Things to avoid include arsenic and aflatoxin (a rare typeof mold). Some research has indicated that exposure to triclosan(an ingredient in many detergents and soaps) may cause liverfibrosis and liver cancer. If you have reason to believe thatyou’ve been exposed to any of these elements, contact your doctorimmediately.Making Healthy DecisionsMaintain a healthy weight. Abig risk factor for liver cancer is having a fatty liver, which iscaused by being overweight or obese – especially if you carry mostof your weight around your midsection. Obesity can also lead totype 2 diabetes, which is associated with an increased risk ofliver cancer. If you are overweight, try putting yourself on a dietand exercise plan that will allow you to shed some of the extraweight. Focus on eating healthy and aim for 30 minutes of exerciseevery day, even if it is just taking your dog for a walk. Talk toyour doctor about what kind of diet and exercise plan is right foryour body.
