How to Strengthen Hair Naturally?

Strengthening hair strands can be done without some sort of medical intervention. B-complex supplement consumption twice a day can do the trick.

Healthy hair can also be accomplished by taking 200 mcg a day of selenium. However, you should not consume this mineral in excess as it can cause hair loss.

Evening primrose oil is also beneficial to the hair by keeping it glowing from inside. This oil is rich in gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid.

Significance of Uric Acid in the blood

The end product of purine (DNA) metabolism is uric acid. This end product is normally excreted through urine. One of the reasons doctors request for a uric acid blood test is to determine the function of the kidneys.

High levels of uric acid in the blood may indicate gout, kidney disease, high protein diets, or alcoholism. Low levels, on the other hand, may imply a liver damage, low-purine diet, or malabsorption.

If you have increased level of uric acid in your blood, you should not conclude that you have kidney disease or liver damage. Instead, you should consult your physician to tackle the reason of the abnormal level of uric acid in your blood.

Understanding Mesothelioma

Families trying to be healthy through a balanced diet and plenty of exercise may fail not because of their lack of information or their lack of effort, but because of their environment.  Where you spend most of your time can have negative effects on your long term health.

Older homes, buildings, and schools may contain a poisonous mineral called asbestos. If inhaled or ingested, asbestos particles collect in the lining of the lungs or stomach, causing a cancer called mesothelioma. Mesothelioma symptoms include shortness of breath and chest heaviness. These signifiers are often misdiagnosed and are latent for 20-50 years, meaning that the cancer has metastasized and that treatment is less effective.  Treatment for mesothelioma is very similar to standard cancer treatment and includes chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and tumor removal surgery.

If you are experiencing mesothelioma symptoms and may have been exposed to asbestos, it is important that you see a doctor and request a cancer screening. Screenings for mesothelioma include chest x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and PET scans.

Of course, prevention is always better than treatment. Be sure that your home is toxin free. If you suspect asbestos, do not attempt to remove it on your own. Handling asbestos materials can loosen the fibers and increase your risk of mesothelioma.  Instead, keep all persons and pets away from the contaminated material and contact a licensed and trained asbestos abatement professional.
