Infection treatment with antibiotics is very common but for those of us that have a story to tell concerning the use of antibiotics for an infection, where the use of antibiotics caused us harm than good, and when finally we get an alternative to antibiotics, we appreciate it better.
Growing up I remember taking antibiotics for throat infection, which is an infection of the oral pharynx and tonsils by streptococcus. I was always having sore throat and most times, it comes with feverish condition and very severe that I can’t swallow saliva, food or even talk. At that time I was taking Strepsils, Rosiclox, Amoxicillin, Ampiclox prescribed by my doctor, I used to take any of these antibiotics but discovered that Strepsil and Rosiclox works better for me so I took more of Strepsil and Rosiclox for so many years.
Antibiotics have a number of drawbacks. They kill bacteria indiscriminately throughout the body, that’s the way they work. For example, if you have a sore throat, the antibiotic you take kills the friendly or good bacteria known as lactobacillus in the gut and vagina, exposing you to vagina yeast infection. That’s why vaginal and intestinal yeast infections are very common after the use of antibiotic. Continue reading How to Fight Infection Naturally Without Antibiotics

An insect repellent, also known as “bug spray”, is a substance applied to skin, clothing, or other surfaces that helps to keep mosquitoes and other insects away and prevent them from approaching or settling on that surface.
Most insect repellents that work contain N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide as their active ingredient. Permethrin is another active ingredient widely used, a pesticide rather than a repellent. These insect repellents are used for prevention of insect-borne diseases as well as painful insect bites.
It is a fact that insect repellents have prevented countless cases of malaria, fever, and other mosquito-borne diseases. However, there are concerns about the potential adverse health effects of insect repellents in recent times which have increased, especially for those containing N, N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide, also known as deet.

Pregnant women are being warned not to use antibacterial soaps because they contain triclosan.
What is Triclosan
Triclosan is a whitish crystalline powder used especially as a broad-spectrum antibacterial agent in personal care products such as antibacterial soaps, deodorants, mouthwash, toothpaste; it’s a chemical that hinders an enzyme called estrogen sulfotransferase that helps metabolize estrogen and move it through the placenta into the developing fetus. There, the estrogen plays a crucial role in brain development as well as the regulation of genes.
Have you ever wondered how fertile you are now that you are in your 30s, 40s? You know in your 20s, you were in your most fertile years, now that you are in your 30s or 40s do you have a good understanding how age affects fertility?
Does age affect fertility?
The answer to this question is Yes, age affects fertility. It is important to understand that fertility declines as a woman ages due to the normal age-related decrease in the number of eggs that remain in her ovaries. This decline may take place much sooner than most women expect.
Fertility begins to decline for women from about the age of 30, dropping down at a rapid rate from the age of 35. As women grow older the likelihood of getting pregnant falls while the likelihood of infertility rises.
A study published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, sheds light on the factors that affect the risk of miscarriage. An interview was scheduled for over 6000 British women to talk about their pregnancy history, and results collated:
Preparing your body for conception: Women who prepare their bodies for conception had an extreme low rate of miscarriage.
Bisphenol-A (BPA), a by-product of plastic manufacture used for decades in the mass production of food containers and baby bottles is now a threat to male fertility.
Published in the journal PLOS Genetics, the study found a direct link between BPA and disrupted sperm production. BPA has now been shown to decrease sperm mobility and quality and has been linked to male infertility.
BPA is found in most food and drink cans – including tins of infant formula milk – plastic food containers, and even the casings of mobile phones, and other electronic goods. Even though BPA has been banned in baby bottle manufacture in Europe, it is still used to line most plastic and tin food packaging – despite the calls for a complete ban of the nasty substance from our shelves by campaigners.

Stress hormones obviously reduce fertility as hormones like cortisol or epinephrine rises and often remain high during times of chronic stress.
On the other hand, reducing stress may help enhance proteins within the uterine lining that are involved in implantation. Stress reduction such as practicing relaxation techniques helps increase blood flow to the uterus, and this greatly affects conception.
We are living in stressful times. The economy is still struggling; jobs don’t seem to be easy to come by, businesses are struggling to survive and the cost of running a business is extremely on the high side.

When a man is finding it difficult to have or maintain an erection it is known as erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is also known as sexual dysfunction or impotence. There are a number of hormones, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels that work in conjunction with one another to signal an erection when a man is sexually motivated.
An erection begins in the brain. Both physical and mental stimulation cause nerves in the brain to send chemical messages to nerves in the penis telling the penile blood vessels to relax so that blood can flow freely into the penis. Once blood gets in the penis, high pressure traps the blood within both corpora cavernosa which causes the penis to expand and sustain an erection.
Here’s advice from nutrition experts on top pregnancy foods. You may not need to like or eat them all, but you can pick and choose your favorites to give your pregnancy a nutritional boost.
Number 1. Eggs
In addition to more than 12 vitamins and minerals, eggs contain lots of quality protein, which is essential for pregnancy. “It’s amazing what you get in one egg for only about 90 calories.
“Your baby’s cells are growing at an exponential rate, and every cell is made of protein, and as a pregnant woman, you have your own protein needs.”
Eggs are also rich in choline, which promotes your baby’s overall growth and brain health, while helping prevent neural tube defects. Some eggs even contain omega-3 fats, important for both brain and vision development. (Brands that have omega-3s will probably state it on the label. DHA-enriched eggs contain the most beneficial form of omega-3s.)
As for the egg’s bad rap about cholesterol? Not warranted, expert says, It turns out that eating saturated fat does much more damage to your cholesterol level than eating the cholesterol naturally found in food. And while eggs are high in cholesterol, they’re also relatively low in saturated fat, with only about 1 1/2 grams per egg.
