- Rinse With Water: Use clean water such as mineral or bottled water when using this method. If you do not have mineral or bottled water available you can also use tap water (as long as your tap water is treated and filtered properly). The best method is to cup your hand and splash the water into the irritated eye. Most of the time this method works well and seamlessly flushes the debris out. If this method does not work you can resort to a gentler method by filling up a bowl with water and submerging the eye. Inevitably the act of submerging your eye under water will likely help flush the debris out.
- Saline Solution: If the method above yields no results you can use saline solution as a possible solution. Unlike the method above, saline solution provides a little more pressure during the rinsing process which may help dislodge
If you have pain or discomfort in your heel, there are many causes. If the pain is chronic and severe enough to greatly impact the daily use of your foot, it is highly recommended that you see a podiatrist as soon as possible.
For other heel pain ailments, you may be able to get relief and treatment in a variety of ways from stretches to orthotics.
Not every heel pain ailment can be effectively treated in the same manner. It is important, then, to know what the cause of your heel ailment is.

Many people swear by the ionic foot detox to rid their bodies of all the toxins that are constantly bombarding us. While one session won’t rid your body of everything, with a set of sessions under your belt you will notice cleaner water at the end as your body slowly rids itself of the toxins found within.
Many people say that the detox helps them have less pain, especially in the joints like knees, elbows and hips. There is increased energy and improved sleep patterns and of course the big one, toxin reduction that is also widely reported. Some people say they have less swelling and improved digestion after a set of treatments and others say they have an increased metabolism, better skin and a better functioning circulatory system after as well.

- Myofascial Release:
According to Wikipedia, myofascial release is “a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This alternative medicine therapy aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles.”
A very common and well-known form of MFR is massage. Another is foam rolling. Since massage is not always an easy or affordable option, the best way to affect MFR, in my opinion, is with a good foam roller. The one I recommend is made by Trigger Point.
When it comes to rolling for back pain, you need to keep in mind that the body is a single muscle, and that in order to “fix” your back, you have to treat the entire body. So don’t just roll your back. Roll your entire body, both lower and upper. Done properly, foam rolling can get you out of pain …
In other cases, the ringing sensation is caused by the natural loss of hearing due to aging, Meniere’s disease, head injuries, or even something as simple as wax build-up putting pressure on the inner ear. In rare instances, the ringing sensation can be caused by high blood pressure, which leads to what’s known as pulsatile tinnitus. In that case, the ringing manifests not as a constant hum but beats in time with an individual pulse.
Because it is a symptom of a number of possible conditions, there is no “cure” for tinnitus. Addressing the underlying cause may help, but, in the case of noise or age-induced hearing loss, there is little that can be done. For the vast majority of people afflicted, tinnitus is merely a mild annoyance that can even go unnoticed most of the time. If the ringing is perceived at a very low volume, the noise of …
- Lemon – Malassezia is a fungus and is associated with a number of dermatological disorders including dandruff. Lemon contains various flavonoids, which are known for their antibacterial activity and thus help in controlling dandruff by acting against these species. Lemon also helps balance pH levels and reduces excessive oils that can be a factor in dandruff. A mild lemon juice rinse effectively cleans away leftover soap or chemicals that can cause itching and flaking. Additionally, using lemon on dandruff problems provides an antibacterial action.
- Egg whites – Antimicrobial (against fungus and bacteria’s) properties of the proteins present in egg white helps in the treatment of dandruff at home. Although, most of the proteins present antimicrobial activity, lysozyme is one of the most important enzyme present in egg white. It initiates events of cell death (among bacteria and fungi) by breaking their cell wall and thus exposing the weak cell membrane
There are several different ways that the thyroid gland can malfunction. The most prominent way is due to the autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which accounts for approximately 90 percent of cases of clinical hypothyroidism in the US.
An autoimmune disease is one in which the body’s immune system has gone into overdrive and accidentally started attacking its own cells as a result of poor gut barrier health. In Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the thyroid gland is the victim.
You can find out for certain if you have Hashimoto’s (as opposed to other kinds of thyroid malfunction) only through getting blood work done. A quick explanation of thyroid function is helpful for understanding this blood work
First, your thyroid gland works only after it receives a “green light” signal for production by the pituitary gland, which comes in the form of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). When TSH gets to the thyroid gland, the …

The more I read and research health and wellness, skin conditions and their probable causes, the clearer the link has become in my mind. In the olden days our cleaning products were made of hot water and soap, or bicarb and vinegar, or just plain old elbow grease. Our bathroom cupboard was not full of hundreds of different products housed in plastic bottles and tubs, and our clothes were washed in nothing more than boiling water.
Fast forward to the 21st century. Now for most of us, our morning routine alone means we start each day by applying multiple products to our hair and skin. We vigorously and vigilantly scour our homes with a selection of chemical based cleaning products, and we use highly developed detergents, fabric softeners and ironing aids on our clothes each time they go in the wash.
So what’s the difference? Chemicals. Synthetic chemicals, poisons, pesticides, …
