How To Release Constipation

I figured with the holiday bingeing coming up this might come in handy. This and water resistant trade show tablecloth.

1. Stop Eating.

The more you eat, the more you are stuffing into your digestive tract. Give it a break!

2. Drink Green.

Nature has provided us with the perfect essentials for elimination with green juice!

3. Spinal Twists.

Deep forward bends and spinal twists are excellent ways to break up that tough mucoid plaque in your GI tract.

4. Bath in Epson Salt.

Epson salts help with your body’s detox process. Nice warm salty water on your stomach is total bliss for a full belly.

5. Child’s Pose.

Any pressure on your colon will stimulate blood flow, and therefore elimination. In child’s pose our whole torso is melting over our quadriceps creating a deep pressure in your gut.

Foods that increase mucus when you’re sick

We’ve all had that annoying cough, the one that feels like there is something on your chest that you just have to cough up. It’s not pretty and it doesn’t feel great either. Colds can result in the production of excess mucus. Allergies, hay fever and even certain foods can also increase the amount of mucus produced. Phlegm is irritating as it can be difficult to deal with. If not dealt with early on it can become a source of potentially harmful bacteria. This can lead to things like chest infections. There are specific foods that you should be weary of when you have come down with a cold or flu. Stop mucus with a healthy diet.


Dairy foods include: milk, yoghurt, cheese and cream. The dairy food group has been identified as the primary source of mucus caused by food. They can cause thick phlegm in your throat that can be quite irritating. Almost like a slime that refuses to be moved. Consuming dairy whilst you are sick can make already existing mucus feel thicker. It can make it harder for existing mucus to thin and loosen. Try to avoid dairy when you are sick but of course you need it in your everyday diet for a source of calcium.


Animal products are high in protein and this can cause an increase of mucus in your throat. This includes pork, fish, poultry, eggs etc. Just like calcium, these products are fine to consume when you are in good health. Just be weary when you are feeling under the weather. Fish and poultry a couple of times a week are fine to consume but pork and red meat should be avoided if possible.


This food group should be kind of obvious. Things like lard, butter and omega-6 fatty acids should be avoided. Try replacing these items with flax, corn, sunflower, safflower and olive oil. Vegetable oils are good for you in more ways than one. They don’t cause the formation of thick mucus.

Grains and Nuts

Packeted nuts are sometimes covered in oil, this can be a problem. Go for the dry roasted selection, this should not cause a problem with mucus formation. The grain that you should be most weary of is processed wheat flour. It is known to be mucus causing. Breads, pasta, and processed cereals can cause sinus and chest congestion. Increase your consumption of barley, corn, buckwheat, millet and quinoa, which are dryer and do not produce a thick mucus.

These foods don’t have to be cut out of your diet completely. Some should be avoided when you are ill and others should only be a treat every now and then.

Searching for Walkers for the Safety of Your Elders

The past few weeks have let me realize that my parents are not getting any younger. I need to make sure that certain allowances and care are given to them especially since I am the eldest girl. They are still sharp and ambulatory, fortunately, so they can still be left at home by themselves. However, I need to make sure that features at home are not accident prone.

There are elderly people who would need assistance with walking. This is why walkers and rollators with seats are one of the most sold out medical equipment when it comes to geriatric care.

Medical walkers are ambulatory aids that were designed to help seniors become independent despite those conditions that make them have difficulties in staying balanced while walking or standing up.

There are roughly two types of walkers, those with wheels and those without wheels. There are also walkers with seats and those without.

One needs to choose the best medical walkers that fit the one that is using it.

1.  When it comes to the handles, choosing the right grip is a must to ensure that your hands and the bones in them don’t get deformed.

2. Be sure that the handles are of the appropriate height as you hold on to them. This will prevent undue stress and pressure on your arms, shoulders, and the back. See to it that your elbows bend at a comfortable angle and that when you place your hands at your sides, the handle reaches the crease lines of your wrists.

3. Test the product first. To test your walker, put your weight against it while keeping your back straight then take a step into the device, be sure that the walker doesn’t move as you take a step.

Treatment for Sinus Infections: The Natural Way

No sinus infections in the house for years. When we get stuffed up we get relief in under a minute, and it doesn’t settle or move into the chest. Inhale it from the bottle, or put a few drops on a tissue or cotton swab to carry around/ sleep with. When it is all of us I put 20 drops or so with a cup or 2 of water and simmer on the stove for a few hours. That also prevents colds from spreading(anitbacterial and antiviral). One person I know puts it in her vacuum when she vacuums.
