The premenopausal women: How to get rid of the tides


As stated in traditional Chinese medicine, hot flashes indicate podavlenii inside anger and irritation. In this regard, the hot flashes are a sign that the body is trying out all the accumulated and totally unneeded.

Hot flashes are one of the most pronounced signals of menopause, but many women tolerate them and in the course of the preceding premenopausal. Many are beginning to bundle up in blankets, sit for a long time under the fan, trying whenever possible to throw off the clothes.


Painful hot flashes in premenopausal. What to do


The beginning of the premenopausal is typical of most women around the age of 35 years. The process is quite long (about 10-15 years), and its for the woman periodically feels surges of the hormone levels of different force and frequency, in particular it can be expressed in a complete cessation of menstruation.


The body is no longer producing the needed amounts of testosterone, progesterone and estrogen. The depth and degree of pain sensation data jumps due to the fact what kind of life you lead, as well as diet and routine food. This is most important during the premenopausal. But, by understanding them and knowing the causes, and, most importantly, what to do, you can achieve a fairly high boost of energy and libido. Your skin will stay smooth and beautiful, and the body more than one year will attract men’s eyes.


According to statistics, from 50 to 80% of all women experience hot flushes. But, interestingly, they are not a compulsory element of premenopausal and menopause. Their characteristic is the feeling of heat all over the body, mainly in the neck area and face. Tides occur not only at night but during the day. On how intense the attacks are, depends on the side effects.

In particular, the tides are accompanied by strong headache, excessive sweating, rapid fatigue, weakness in legs, heart palpitations. Often at night women suffer from insomnia. They usually start shortly before the menstrual cycle or the period of bleeding during premenopausal. Despite the fact that the tides for the most part appear after the onset of menopause, there are experiencing their influence upon its completion.


That lies at their base


It is known that body temperature is regulated, in particular, and with the stable operation of the hormones. And when, during the jumps of the level starts to deviate from the normal values and this is reflected on the body temperature, resulting in discomfort. To hot flashes leads to vasodilation of the skin of the head and neck, and then begins to redden the skin.

Thoroughly it is not known how they appear, but it is considered that the changes in vascular tone are disturbances in the functioning of neurotransmitters in the nervous system, causing disruptions in the hormones. If the estrogen level is below normal, or is unstable, the malfunction of the hypothalamus, which leads to spikes in body temperature.

Most believe that the basis of the tides lies a high enough estrogen level that is not fully true. Those women who go through it, basically there is an imbalance of several hormones at the same time. Here there are several options, including a combination of the prevalence of estrogen on the background of reduced progesterone low level of progesterone when estrogen is at an acceptable level.


In addition, hot flashes can occur with a low level of testosterone (this is subject to men), elevated follicle stimulating hormone, lutenizing hormone, and cortisol. Such a condition is possible and due to reduced quantities of antioxidants. In view of this, during the premenopausal and menopause the main advocates proper nutrition. Sudden temperature spikes can occur as a result of taking drugs that have anti-allergic property, or those that are designed to relieve inflammation.


Try to listen to the signals that the body takes


If you try to understand the impulses that emanate from the body, it will be possible to control the intensity of the tides. They are based on different reasons, and different women are similarly subject to various factors. You should look at the behavior of the organism, including, for example, to start a diary, based on the records in which you can define some patterns and know what time to expect the tide. The most common causes of tides described are:

  • spicy and peppery foods;
  • tea, coffee and other hot drinks;
  • caffeine;
  • alcohol
  • heat;

This applies primarily to food, in respect of which it is necessary to observe following rules:

  • In addition to full diet on a regular basis, it should also contribute to the stable functioning of the hormones. Their work is vital to the quality of a food products. In this regard, one should carefully consider their choice.
  • You must exclude from your diet foods that contains gluten. According to the obtained scientific data, it speaks the fact that in large measure leads to an imbalance of estrogen in the body, prevents its metabolism stable.

It is characterized by a content of a significant number of lihanov, which is, in essence, phytoestrogens, and promote the necessary balance of estrogen. It also contains a lot of fiber, due to what is stimulation of the intestine. In this respect, it is advisable to prepared useful cocktail pour 2 scoops (tablespoons) of seeds (pre-ground).
  • You need to eat as much greens. In the leaves of greens are present in a large amount of useful vitamins and minerals that support the functioning of the hormones, positively affect the passage of the menses, and encourage the bone became stronger.
  • We need to limit caffeine. Available experimental data clearly indicate the negative down-effect on estrogen levels.
  • You can consider the option of eating propolis, which stimulates the ovarian tissue, normalizes the endocrine system is composed of phytoestrogens.
  • It will not hurt and use a grenade. Its juice (like the oil from pomegranate seeds) reduce the number of tides, their power by bringing the estrogen to the desired level. Seed oil should drink twice a day (dose of 15 milligrams).


In regard to dietary supplements, among them:

But keep in mind that its action has a very strong effect, therefore, the daily dose should be within a quarter teaspoon;
  • racemose black cohosh. Carries a large number of effects therapeutic properties that help in establishing the balance of hormones (including, for the account of the increase of estrogen) and the restoration of the proper menstrual period;
  • a radiogram. Is an immunomodulator, stimulating the endocrine and nervous systems, normalize menstrual cycle. Helps eliminate hot flashes;
  • cream, which includes progesterone. With it leveled the balance of estrogen and progesterone;
  • if blood is not enough estrogen in the period of the tides will help bioidentical cream, which includes estrogen. Thus, before it is necessary to take a blood test to check hormones.

How to make up the loss of electrolytes after a workout


By Katie Kissane, MS, RD, CSSD

Electrolytes are ions contained in sweat and other body fluids. These include ions of sodium, chlorine, potassium, magnesium and calcium. We lose electrolytes in the process of sweating when you exercise. The most common electrolyte is sodium, followed by chloride, then potassium.

What is the importance of electrolytes?

Electrolytes are essential for transmitting electrical impulses the heart, maintaining fluid balance in cells and outside of them, and to transmit the signals of muscle contraction. When electrolytes are lost in sweat and their loss is not replenished, this can lead to muscle spasms. Dangerous lowering of sodium level may occur with the loss of large amounts of sodium from sweating and by drinking water without replenishing losses of sodium. This condition is called hyponatremia. That’s why it’s important to replenish electrolytes (as well as liquid) while in a hot and humid environment, as well as in intense exercise.

When the most optimal time to replenish the loss of electrolytes?

Many people to restore the loss of electrolytes drink drinks with electrolytes, but not all beverages with electrolytes are equally effective. Avoid drinks with high sugar content, artificial sweeteners or food dyes. If your drink with electrolytes has a bright neon color, it might be a problem. Currently, there are good natural drinks with electrolytes, which contain little sugar. Remember that electrolytes are not the only thing that needs to be filled in after training. Typically, in order to ensure recovery and muscle growth, it is useful to fill not only the electrolytes, but proteins and carbohydrates. Try to eat a revitalizing drink that contains all three components. You will also be useful to obtain additional amount of liquid.

You are looking for more natural ways to replenish the loss of electrolytes and liquids? This can be a broth or a soup-based soups, as they usually contain fluid and sodium. However, on a hot summer day, it might not be the most appropriate option. Milk can be very cold and refreshing, and it contains electrolytes, carbohydrates and protein. A glass of milk contains 8 grams of protein, 12 grams carbohydrates, and about 100 mg sodium, 380 mg potassium and 27 mg of magnesium. Very active people who require additional carbs after a workout, can come chocolate milk. All these has advantages and Greek yogurt, which also contains more protein. To increase the amount of carbohydrates and potassium in Greek yogurt, add a little fruit. All is not well tolerate milk and dairy products, but unfortunately, milk substitutes, generally do not contain the proteins, carbohydrates and electrolytes that are in cow or goat milk.

Great food after a workout can be fruits and vegetables because they contain carbohydrates, potassium and fluid. However, fruits and vegetables are a good source of sodium, so consider adding them to other foods that contain sodium, or add to fruit some sea salt as a source of sodium and chlorine. Watermelon may very well freshen up after a workout if you take it with a pinch of sea salt.

Adding to post-workout mixed nuts and seeds is a great way to make up the loss of magnesium and calcium. A good source of these minerals is almonds and pumpkin seeds, and if you add to them salt, they will also be an additional source of sodium.

Another alternative drinks with electrolytes can be coconut water as it contains large amounts of potassium, as well as a number of natural carbohydrates. However, it is not a good source of sodium.

After a very long and hard training (especially in hot and humid environment), it is recommended to make smoothie with a few of these ingredients to maximize compensate losses. You can use fruits rich in potassium (mango, banana, oranges, or even avocado), Greek yogurt, nuts and seeds, such as Chia seeds, coconut milk for the liquid, and a pinch of sea salt. All this will contribute to the recovery after exercise and also help replenish lost electrolytes and fluids.

Atherosclerosis: How to improve the transport function of blood vessels


Atherosclerosis can trigger problems such as high cholesterol and triglycerides, a diet rich in fats, emotional stress, lack of exercise, and diabetes and high blood pressure.

The word atherosclerosis comes from two Greek words “ATERA”, which means “interference” or “porridge”, and “sclerosis” which means “difficult” Defeat atherosclerosis begins with soft sediments in the arterial vessels, which harden with time. These deposits or damage called plaques. They grow gradually thickening of the artery walls and narrowing the passage through which blood flows. Plaques consist of a mixture of different substances: cholesterol, lipoprotein, fatty acids, calcium, fibrous scar tissue and blood. The formation of these plaques leads to loss of elasticity of walls of blood vessels. And if the blood clot is formed in these blood vessels and blocks the flow of blood to the heart, then there is a heart attack. A blow (stroke) is the result of blockage of blood vessels through which blood is supplied to the brain.


Atherosclerosis: treatment and prevention


Atherosclerosis is one of the most common blood diseases in all developed countries today. It is a common disease of the arteries, which is rare without atherosclerosis (the disease is also called “hardening of the arteries”). Atherosclerosis often affects the major arteries, usually in places or spots. If this disease began in the limbs, it affects it all. Moreover, more affects the lower limbs than the upper.

Atherosclerosis can trigger problems such as high cholesterol and triglycerides, a diet rich in fats, emotional stress, lack of exercise, and diabetes and high blood pressure.


Among men after the age of 65 years atherosclerosis is one of the most frequent causes of death. More than 50% of people aged 60 -70 years of age die because of the existence of any types of atherosclerosis. Myocardial infarction (heart attack) or cerebral vascular attack (stroke) is the most common manifestations of this disease is recorded in hospitals. Is also often pain in the legs when walking.



The root causes of vision loss – excess cholesterol


In atherosclerosis, the lumen of the vessel narrowed due to deposits on its inner wall cholesterol. When the lumen is reduced by 40%, the heart has to increase the strength of cardiac contractions. And if the process sclerosing vessels do not stop developing such diseases as hypertension, which is complicated by stroke or heart attack.


Cholesterol is used to build the shell of the cells and production of certain hormones. There are two types of cholesterol. First produced by the liver, is a plasma cholesterol, which we need daily. The second is dietary cholesterol, which we get with food. Excess cholesterol narrows the blood vessels, prevents blood flow, leading to metabolic disorders, occurrence of diabetes, which, in turn, leads to loss of vision.


Source of cholesterol are foods of animal origin. Most of the cholesterol contain fatty meats, egg yolk and whole milk. The early stage of the clogging of the vessels has been observed in children from 10 to 15 years, in 20 years young people fat deposits can be seen in the cross-section of the artery. A disease such as cataract, develops as a result of malnutrition of the lens of the eye, as the vessels cannot comply fully with its function.


But the process of hardening of the blood vessels is reversible. Our body has a certain amount of strength and is able to neutralize and excrete toxins, medications, toxins, bacteria and viruses. The function of the vessels can be restored by limiting the ingestion of cholesterol, to give preference to foods that are rich in vitamins, trace elements.


For example, cellulose, which contain all products of plant origin, able to clean the intestines and improve the body’s cells. Lentils, soybeans, peas, beans contain carbohydrates, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, two times more than the good meat. The best and a surefire way to have clean vessels is not to clog them.



Prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis


1. Fruit, legumes and vegetable fibers reduce fat in the blood and contribute to increase the excretion of bile acids.


2. It is known that eggplant is a good agent for lowering the cholesterol level in the blood. Once in the digestive system, it breaks down connected with cholesterol and removes it from the body.


3. Useful strict vegetable diet. Many vegetarians cholesterol lower than the and lax-vegetarians are vegetarians who eat milk and eggs.


4. Many people begin to use creamto lower cholesterol, but research conducted at the University of “Wisconsin-Madison”, showed that the cream, on the contrary, increase his level.


5. The use of chromium in food rich in cholesterol, lowered his level in experimental rabbits by 50% and the number of plaques in their arteries was reduced by 50%. Brewer’s yeast and whole grains are a good source of chromium.


6. According to the statement of Dr. Paul Raina, typical hearty dinner contributes to the development of atherosclerosis. Dr. Ryan notes that a large number of animal fats taken during dinner, digested, mostly during sleep. While the overall metabolism and blood circulation sluggish. This contributes to the accumulation of cholesterol in the arteries, especially those that are narrowed by plaque. Easy low fat dinner eaten a few hours before bedtime, will reduce the amount of fat in the blood during a night’s rest. The perfect dinner: a few simple fruit and bread from wheat flour.


7. Patients with excess weight need to begin weight reduction to ideal for them or even a little below the ideal. Obesity, where excess weight is 20% of perfect, brings great risk of developing atherosclerosis.


8. Smoking reduces blood circulation and affects the blood vessels. It also helps to increase the circulation of lipids and changes in metabolism of these substances. The group of patients who quit Smoking, there was a rapid and surprising increase in the level AVP (useful in blood fats). Smokers with diabetes are at risk of developing atherosclerosis in two times more than non-smokers.


9. Pay particular attention to the feet, as decreased circulation can slow the healing process. Shoes and Slippers should fit. Wash your feet in warm water, and then carefully and gently wipe them. Wear cotton and wool socks. Regular walks help you feel better. This may be due to the increased additional circulation in the extremities.


10. Do not wear such things as garters, stockings, straps, etc., which constrict and do not allow blood to circulate normally.

11. Dress so that no part of your body to keep warm. During the experiment, in which rats were given pure products, but were kept in a cold room, the level of cholesterol in their blood increased significantly. This phenomenon is probably due to the stress, at least partially.


12. High blood pressure produces a physical effect on the arteries and leads to an aggravation and acceleration of atherosclerosis. It also increases the susceptibility of large and small arteries to the disease. Therefore, if you have high blood pressure, you have to face it.


13. Absolute risk of the disease atherosclerosis can cause the failure of glucose. You need to carefully control the level of blood sugar.



How to clean vessels


To improve the transport function of blood vessels, it is necessary to take three steps:


  • to limit the use of products containing cholesterol;

  • to apply available anti-sclerotic agent;

  • master massage face and eyes to improve circulation.





Fiber, or in other words, dietary fiber is a very important component of the cell walls of plants and is contained in the leaves, roots, tubers, stems, fruits. These fibers are the basis plants. An important property of them is that they are passing through the gastrointestinal tract, like a sponge absorb water, swell and move all waste from our body through the digestive tract.



What is the role of fiber in maintaining our health and improving eyesight?

It is known that digestion begins in the mouth during chewing of food.


Fiber triggers the need for thorough chewing of food to stimulate salivation, promote digestion of carbohydrates (the enzyme in saliva is involved in the breakdown of starch). The digestive process continues in the stomach. Foods containing high amount of fiber, low in calories, but causes a feeling of fullness, since the fiber gives it “rude” and “volume”. After a meal a person for a long time feels full. This is very valuable in the control of body weight.


In the small intestine tissue, hold down the glucose, prevents the absorption of it that protects the body in diabetes from sudden changes in blood sugar.


In addition, connecting the intestine with the bile acids and cholesterol, fiber helps to remove excess bile and cholesterol from the body. This, in turn, prevents back absorption of cholesterol in the blood and the formation of cholesterol gallstones.


Fiber also protects the inner surface of the large intestine, absorbing carcinogens and other harmful chemical agents contained in food. It reduces toxicity and risk of cancer of the colon.


Swollen by water, the fiber fills in the intestinal lumen, which stimulates peristalsis. If a food is low in fiber travels through the digestive tract in the form of dense prills for 3-5 days, spongy food mass passes this way is much faster for 24-36 hours.


It is now known that a lack of fiber in the diet combined with excess fat contributes to the development of the disease of the coronary arteries, stroke, heart attack. Most saturated fats foods contain significant amounts of cholesterol, which is deposited as plaques on the inner walls of the coronary arteries. When these plaques become large, which close the lumen of the coronary vessels, can sometimes be a myocardial infarction, If it occurs in the arteries that supply blood to the brain, a stroke occurs, and also develop eye disease.



How to reduce cholesterol level in blood?


Eat foods containing high amounts of fiber.


  • The highest content of fiber in fruits with seeds (e.g., figs), Mature beans, seeds, bran cereals, nuts, and prunes.

  • High content: whole grains, root vegetables containing starch, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and greens.

  • Moderate: whole fruit with skin and other not mentioned vegetables: cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.

  • Low in fiber: refined grains, white flour, pasta and juices.

  • Do not contain fiber, fats, oils, alcohol, sugar, honey and all animal products (meat, eggs, cheese, milk and fish).



To all it should be added that in food with a high content of fiber, vitamins and minerals contains 50-70% morethan in other foods, and it’s so important to feed our eyes and preserve the vessel in good shape.



Natural antiscleroticescoe tool

Anti-sclerotic means “oily propolis solution” — will help you as soon as possible to improve circulation in the eye area, will promote the excretion of cholesterol and improve immune system.


  • A piece of propolis size of a walnut to put in a metal container, pour 250 ml of vegetable oil, put in a water bath and heat, stirring until dissolved. To propolis dissolved faster, it can freeze in the refrigerator, chop on a coarse grater, and then dissolve in sunflower oil.

  • The resulting solution to cool, filter through 8 layers of cheesecloth, store in refrigerator.

  • Take 15 drops to 1 tsp. of honey: dissolving in the oral cavity for 10 minutes before beginning exercises, which will be submitted in the next article.


Depending on the quality of propolis oily solution may to make a pudding-like consistency, in this case, it is possible to measure, equating volume with 15 drops of vegetable oil.


Diabetics as many drops may be taken with honey and a sugar substitute. Propolis very quickly into the blood and has anti-sclerotic effect on the blood vessels in the eyes, getting into the oral cavity, which contains many blood vessels. The absorption of carbohydrates takes place directly in the mouth.published econet.ru.
