Sexual dysfunction in women: Causes and remedies

It may be out of the ordinary to talk about sexual dysfunction in women or its causes as this is usually associated with men. However, women can also have sexually related problems. Therefore, it is important that you know what can cause this and the remedies available.

Sexual dysfunctions are persistent, recurrent problems with sexual response, orgasm or pain that can cause distress between partners. Sexual dysfunction includes pain during intercourse, involuntary painful contraction (spasm) of the muscles around the vagina, and lack of interest in sex and problems with arousal or orgasm. Reduced sexual desire is the most common form of sexual dysfunction.

CAUSES OF SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION IN WOMEN

  1. Medical Conditions: A number of medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure and bladder problems can cause sexual dysfunction. Scarring from surgery in your vaginal opening or in other parts of your genitalia also can change one’s sexual experience.
  2. Physical Changes: other possible causes include hormonal imbalance related to pregnancy, childbirth, breast feeding and menopause. These can greatly reduce your desire for sex.
  3. Psychological Factors: Depression and anxiety commonly contribute to sexual dysfunction. Previous experiences can affect a woman’s psychological and sexual development, causing problems such as:i.) Negative sexual or other experiences may lead to low self-esteem, shame, or guilt.
    ii.) Emotional, physical, or sexual abuse during childhood or adolescence can teach children to control and hide emotions. Women who control and hide their emotions may have difficulty expressing sexual feelings.
  4. Hormonal Changes: Lower estrogen levels after menopause may lead to changes in your genital tissues and sexual responsiveness. A decrease in estrogen leads to decreased blood flow to the pelvic region, which can result in less genital sensation, as well as needing more time to build arousal and reach orgasm. These factors can lead to painful sexual intercourse also referred to as dyspareunia. Sexual desire also decreases when hormonal levels decrease.
  5. Gynecologic Conditions: Endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids and vaginitis can all cause pain during sex. Vaginismus, a condition that causes vaginal muscle spasms, can also make intercourse unpleasant.

 

REMEDIES AVAILABLE

It’s important to understand the physical or psychological causes before choosing management or treatment therapy. Some of the recommended remedies for sexual dysfunction include;

  1. Use of Natural Supplements: use of a mix of plant sterols and nutrients that has been proven to enhance sexual libido, orgasm and maximum sexual satisfaction in women is highly recommended. Nature’s Field Eve’s Desire is a natural sexual support formula that: improves sexual performance and satisfaction in women, increase healthy sexual urge (libido), enhance enjoyment and reduce feelings of fatigue during sex. This product also helps to regulate hormonal levels in women and ease menopausal symptoms.
  2. Counseling: Talking with a mental health professional may help. This is also applicable especially when the problem is psychological. You can work through emotional or psychological barriers to pleasurable sex. You may choose to have one-on-one counseling or couples counseling.

Other remedies include:

3.       More open communication between couples.

4.       Improving intimacy with your partner.

5.       You can to improve sexual health by making certain lifestyle changes such as; cessation of smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly. Also, a reduction of stressors can help boost your sexual drive.

 Sexual dysfunction can be a frustrating and challenging condition for many women. But it’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed to talk about. Talking openly and honestly with your partner can help get to the root of the problem. Most women are able to enjoy healthy, pleasurable sex with the right treatments once the underlying causes are addressed.

Monkey pox vs Chicken pox: What you should know

The causes of Monkey pox and chicken pox are both members of the pox family. However, the cause of chickenpox is varicella-zoster virus.

READ: https://www.naturesfieldng.com/2022/05/26/what-is-monkeypox-and-why-is-it-a-global-health-concern/

WHAT ARE THE DISTINGUISHING FEATURES YOU SHOULD KNOW?

Some of the monkey pox symptoms are similar to chickenpox such as flu-like symptoms, cold, fever, malaise, fatigue, body ache and characteristic rash. However, there are some distinguishing features between monkey pox and chicken pox of which includes their causes;

  • Causative Agent: Orthopoxvirus in the Poxviridae family is the cause of Monkey pox. It is one of the four species of Orthopoxviruses that are pathogenic to humans. The other three are vaccinia virus, variola virus (small pox) and cowpox virus. Varicella-zoster virus (Herpesviruses) is the cause of chicken pox, which is highly contagious.
  • Rash: The rashes caused by monkey pox and chickenpox manifest differently in the skin. Rashes in monkey pox develop within 1-5 days and it begins on the face and spreads to other parts of the body including palms and soles. In the case of chickenpox, rashes appear 1-2 days after fever. It typically starts on the chest, back, face and finally, the entire body except palms and soles.
  • Incubation Period (the period between exposure to disease to the appearance of the first symptoms): The incubation period for monkey pox is usually within 5-21 days. The incubation period for chickenpox is 5-7 days.
  • Host: Animal host for monkey pox include a range of rodents and non-human primates. Whereas for chickenpox, humans are the only reservoir for the virus.

 Other features include;

  • Mode of transmission: transmission of the Monkey Pox virus is through various means such as handling infected animals, bite or scratch from infected animals, from mother to fetus, direct contact with body fluid or sores on an infected person, broken skin, respiratory tract or mucous membrane. On the other hand, chickenpox virus spreads mainly via close contact with someone who has chickenpox to others who have never had the disease or yet to receive any vaccines.
  • Lymph nodes: Monkey pox causes swelling of lymph nodes while for chickenpox, swelling of the lymph nodes are visible. This is a major distinguishing feature between monkey pox and chickenpox.
  • Treatment: In monkey pox, you do not require any specific treatment but administration of smallpox vaccine to infected persons and their contacts. The chickenpox vaccine is very safe and effective at treating the disease.
  • Prevention: various measures can be taken to prevent infection by monkey pox such as avoiding contact with infected animals, avoid close contact with beddings or nasal droplets from infected persons, etc. The most effective way to prevent chickenpox is to get chickenpox vaccine.
  • Mortality Rate: For monkey pox, death occurs in 1-10% of cases depending on the strain. Death rarely occurs in people with chickenpox.

 

IS MONKEYPOX SIMILAR TO COVID-19?

Monkey pox is in no way similar to Covid-19 so there no cause for panic. First of all, monkey pox requires very close contact to spread, mostly skin-to-skin contact with infected persons. This is why more cases of the outbreak have been seen in bisexual men. This may be due to their proactive engagement with sexual-health services.

By contrast, Covid-19 spreads quickly and easily via various means. Coronavirus can spread simply by talking with another person, or sharing a room, or in rare cases, being inside a room that an infected person had previously been. It is also extremely contagious when you compare it with Monkey pox.

It is important therefore for you to be vigilant and pay close attention to your health status. Also, if you are due for a sexual health check-up, do not hesitate to do so even if you do not have any symptoms.

Harmful effects of toxins to the body

Toxins are substances produced by plants, animals or micro-organisms that are poisonous and have harmful effects on humans. We would be looking at the types of toxins as well as symptoms of toxins in the body

Our bodies are constantly exposed to toxins both from the outside environment and from within our own tissues, thereby rendering the body susceptible to these harmful effects. These substances can cause a variety of diseases if not eliminated from our body.

TYPES OF TOXINS

Some of the major types of toxins include: Environmental, marine and microbial toxins. Microbial toxins are those produced by bacteria and fungi.

The main environmental toxins include: herbicides, pesticides and fungicides, heavy metals, industrial gases and pollutants.

HOW TOXINS ENTER THE BODY

The various ways by which toxins enter our body are;

  • Absorption by the skin via direct contact with poisonous substances.
  • Inhalation of toxins through the lungs and taken into the blood.
  • Ingestion of food, drink or other substances can also cause toxin buildup in the body.

SERIOUS SYMPTOMS OF TOXINS BUILDUP IN THE BODY.

  1. Constipation: constant feeling of unsatisfactory defecation is one of the signs of toxin buildup in our body. Food we consume also consists of preservatives, colorants and artificial flavorings. This can lead to a buildup of toxic wastes in our body which can cause constipation.
  2. Brain disorders: environmental toxins can impact the brain of a developing child. Some toxins such as mercury, cause cell death and affect cell migration and proliferation. This can lead to serious neurological disorders in children. Also, signs of brain fog such as memory loss, confusion and inability to stay focus can be as a result of irritation caused by exposure to toxins.
  3. Low Energy Levels: Toxin overload in your body can cause your kidneys and liver to work exhaustively in order to eliminate the wastes. Such overwork of the kidneys in turn causes symptoms of fatigue and low energy.
  4. Skin Problems: The skin also removes toxins in your body which the liver and kidney failed to do. Due to toxic overload, your skin might have a hard time eliminating this waste which often leads to acnes, boils and skin rashes.
  5. Impaired Immune System: persistent headaches, muscle aches, strain, tension can all be signs of a weakened immune system due to high level of toxins in your body. This increases the risk of autoimmune diseases, anxiety and depression.
  6. Unsuccessful weight loss: This might be a sign of having excess toxins in your body. Some toxins such as pesticides are lipophilic which means that they could be stored as body fat when not eliminated from the body. This can lead to persistent body fat which is difficult to shed due to overload.

HOW TOXINS CAUSE DISEASES

  • Liver overload: Toxins cause diseases when the toxic load is greater than the body can effectively deal with or eliminate. When the liver becomes overloaded with toxins, ability to detoxify becomes impaired, hence, this leads to premature ageing and chronic diseases. This increases the risk of toxic liver disease.
  • Damage to Enzymes: toxins damage enzymes and interrupt several metabolic functions such as production of hemoglobin, protection against oxidative stress and energy production. This increases the risk of various diseases and lowers the body’s capacity to prevent the damage cause by free radicals.
  • Damage DNA and gene expression: Toxins induce their effects by distorting the DNA structure through breakage of hydrogen bonds between two complementary base pairs involved in stabilization of DNA strands. This accelerates the ageing process and increases the risk of chronic disease and degeneration.

  Others harmful effects of toxins include:

  • Damage cell membrane: Healthy cell membranes are vital for messages to pass throughout the body and for substances to move in and out of cells. Toxins can damage cell membranes and hinder normal signaling processes and substance movement. This leads to problems such as messages from vital hormones such as insulin not being passed on, leading to elevated blood sugar. Eventually, chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes results.
  • Autoimmune diseases: There are 3 theories on how toxins contribute to development of autoimmune diseases: the first is that toxins can damage the cells in your body so that your immune system no longer recognizes it and then attacks those cells. Also, toxins can stimulate an immune response, causing chronic inflammation and overwhelming the immune system, it starts to malfunction. Finally, toxins damages the thymus which regulates the immune system and produces cells that differentiate your own tissues from invaders.
  • Organ damage: Toxins can damage the vital organs in the body leading to their malfunctioning, poor health and eventually disease conditions.

EFFECTIVE WAYS TO REDUCE TOXIN BUILDUP

Below are effective ways to reduce toxins buildup in the body once you observe these symptoms:

  • Use naturally-made detoxifying products: Consider using a natural supplement that detoxifies your kidney, lungs, colon and lymph while enhancing digestion in the process. We highly recommend Nature’s Field Toxi-Flush to achieve your detoxification goals in a relaxing way, support liver function and strengthen the immune system. This product also don’t contain any harsh stimulant laxative and is easily absorbed by the body.
  • Reduce your intake of sugar and processed foods.
  • Take anti-oxidant rich foods: such as fruits, vegetables, berries, nuts all contain high levels of anti-oxidants.
  • Reduce your stress levels
  • Limit alcohol and tobacco intake and exercise more.

Finally, you shouldn’t dismay, just take action!

Toxins can cause a myriad of disease conditions which can be curtailed by taking better care of your body. What better way to do that than to detoxify with Nature’s Field Toxi-Flush. Detoxification helps to increase energy levels, improve mental clarity, promotes healthy and clear skin, balance emotions and help improve mood. Taking care of your body has a huge impact on your general well-being. The healthier you are, the happier you are!

 

10 Health risks of Tobacco Smoking You Didn’t Know About

Smoking is bad for your health! This is widely known but what you do not know is that there are short term and long term health risks of tobacco smoking. The following are 10 health risks of tobacco smoking:

  1. Blindness: Smoking increases your risk of age- related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in adults over the age of 65. Smoking causes oxidative stress, damages the retina and reduces blood flow to the eyes. This leads to oxygen depletion in the macula which can result in tissue death. Working on your smoking habit and using Nature’s Field eye cap helps in slowing the progression of age-related macular degeneration.
  2. Cancer risk: Certain chemicals in cigarette such as carbon monoxide and various metals increase the risk of cancer in different parts of the body such as the mouth, kidney, lungs, stomach, colon, pharynx, larynx, cervix, pancreas, etc
  3. Ectopic Pregnancy: This occurs when a fertilized egg occurs somewhere other than the uterus. A product in nicotine called cotinine reduces the expression of the gene BAD in the fallopian tube. This results in an environment that allows ectopic pregnancy to occur.
  4. Hip Fractures: Nicotine and free radicals kill osteoblasts which are the cells that make bones. Smoking damages blood vessels, interrupting supply of blood to the bones, hence, causing fractures.
  5. Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate: The fifth on our list of harmful effects of tobacco smoking is orofacial cleft. These birth defects which occurs when the baby’s lips do not develop properly during pregnancy. Women who smoke during pregnancy carry a fetus whose DNA lacks a gene involved in detoxifying cigarette smoke. Therefore, this increases the baby’s chances of being born with a cleft lip or palate.

Other health risks of tobacco smoking you do not know include;

  1. Gum disease: The solid particles suspended in tobacco smoke called tar contain chemicals and cancer-causing substances (carcinogens). Tar is sticky and brown, stains the teeth and contributes to periodontitis. This is a gum infection that destroys the bone the supports the teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.
  2. Tuberculosis: If you have had tuberculosis, smoking doubles the chance of recurrence. Nicotine in cigarette inhibits the production of Tumor Necrosis Factor (a substance that causes inflammation). As a result, this increases the susceptibility of development of progressive disease form a latent tuberculosis infection.
  3. Cardiovascular Disease: The highly reactive chemicals in cigarette such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, thiocyanate, radioactive metals, can damage the heart muscles and blood vessels of people that smoke. They react with cholesterol leading to a buildup of fatty materials on the cell wall. Their actions lead to heart disease, stroke and blood vessel disease.
  4. Risk on the brain: Smoking causes significant harm to your brain too. A compound in nicotine called NNK (Nicotine-derived nitrosamine ketone) provokes the brain’s immune cells causing them to attack healthy brain cells rather than unhealthy cells they are supposed to attack.
  5. Immune System: The last on our post of Health risks of Tobacco Smoking is Immune system weakening. Smoking causes inflammation throughout the body. It poses more health risk by weakening the immune system. Therefore, it becomes harder to fight off infection and diseases.

STEPS TO NATURALLY CLEANSE THE BODY

The toxic chemicals present in cigarette smoke, reach the liver and cause oxidative stress producing free radicals. This free radicals damage liver cells. Therefore, it is important you detoxify to get rid of those free radicals.

The recommended steps include:

  • Detoxification: A great way to detoxify is to use Nature’s Field Toxi-Flush which enhances natural detoxification of harmful chemicals and toxic wastes. This product contains a blend of botanicals and extracts that are loaded with nutrients to detox the liver, kidney, colon , gall bladder amongst other detox properties it possesses.
  • Include healthy foods, specifically for your lungs in your diet: this includes water, cruciferous vegetables, apples, fatty fish, beans, nuts, carrots. These are foods that will boost lung health and keep them healthy.
  • Get more exercise: such as walking, running and cycling can help improve your lung capacity. If you have a chronic lung disease, it is important you speak with your doctor to find out the exercise most suitable for you.

In addition to the above, you should also limit alcohol and tobacco intake. Drink more water, and consume anti-oxidant rich foods to enhance your body’s natural detoxification system. While doing that, do not forget to take Nature’s Field Toxi-Flush to help you live a longer, healthier and happier life.

What is monkeypox and why is it a global health concern?

Monkeypox has become a global health concern recently and early detection using the symptoms is very essential.

Monkeypox is a viral zoonotic (a virus transmitted from animals to humans) disease which is caused by the monkeypox virus. This virus belongs to a subset of Poxviridae family called Orthopoxviruses. This subset includes smallpox, vaccinia (small pox virus) and cowpox viruses.

Monkeypox was first discovered in 1958 from two colonies of monkeys that were kept for research. Two outbreaks of a pox-like disease was discovered from these monkeys, hence the name monkeypox.

WHY IS THERE AN OUTBREAK IN 2022?

Monkeypox confines particularly in African rodents. It was not until 1970 in Africa when a 9 year old boy was the first to be eventually diagnosed of monkeypox. Since the 1970s, most of the outbreaks had occurred in Africa till 2003 when an outbreak occurred in the US.

This happened when an animal distributor transported monkeypox-infected African rodent with Priarie dogs that people later bought as pets. The animals became sick and transmitted the disease to their owners.

In September 2017, an outbreak of monkeypox began in Nigeria. This was as a result of a river flooding. This flooding caused infected wild animals especially rodents and monkeys to be closely associated with humans. Thus, spreading the disease.

An ongoing outbreak of monkeypox was confirmed in 6th May 2022 beginning with a British resident.  He travelled to Nigeria where the disease is endemic. On his return, he showed consistent symptoms for monkeypox in April 2022. This resident returned to the UK in 4th May 2022, creating the country’s first documented case of the disease.

HOW IS MONKEYPOX SPREAD?

Transmission of the virus is through contact with an infected person, animal or contaminated surfaces. Usually, the virus enters the body through openings. These openings can be a break in the skin, inhalation or mucous membrane in the eyes, nose and mouth. After the virus enters the body, it starts to replicate. It then spreads throughout the body via the bloodstream. Symptoms usually do not appear until one or two weeks after infection.

WHAT ARE THE RISK FACTORS FOR MONKEYPOX?

  • Animal bites and scratches from infected animals.
  • Eating meat from such animals (rodents and monkeys)
  • Physical contact with patients without PPE (Personal Protection Equipment).
  • Skin contact especially sexual intercourse with infected patient.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS FOR MONKEYPOX?

The incubation period (this is the interval from infection to onset of symptoms) of monkeypox is usually from 6 to 13 days but can range from 5 to 21 days.

The disease can be classified into two phases:

  • The Invasion phase: this lasts between 0-5 days and possesses flu-like symptoms. These symptoms include; fever, intense headache, malaise, swelling of the lymph nodes, back pain and muscle aches. Swelling of the lymph nodes is a distinguishing feature from other similar diseases such as small pox and chickenpox.
  • Eruption of the skin typically begins within 1-3 days of appearance of the fever. The rash affects the face in most cases. Rashes can also occur in the palms and soles of the feet.

WHY IS IT A GLOBAL HEALTH CONCERN?

Symptoms for monkeypox lasts 2 to 3 weeks. It has become a source of concern because severe cases occur more commonly among children and people with underlying immune deficiencies which can lead to worse outcomes. In the past, vaccination against small pox was protective. Today, people less than 40 years of age may be more susceptible to monkeypox. This is due to cessation of smallpox vaccination campaign globally after eradication of the disease.

CAN PEOPLE DIE FROM MONKEYPOX?

In newborns and people with immune complications, monkeypox can lead to severe medical complications and even death.

METHODS OF DIAGNOSING MONKEYPOX

Several methods are in use to diagnose monkeypox which includes:

  • Medical History: this includes travel history which will enable the doctor determine your risk.
  • Laboratory Tests: this involves testing the fluid from lesions and dry scabs. Using PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), one can check the presence of the virus.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Since monkeypox is self-limiting, it can get better without treatment. Although, treatment focuses on relieving symptoms.

However, some medications are in use to control an outbreak and prevent the disease from spreading. They include;

  • Small pox vaccine: This has been shown to be 85% effective in preventing the development of monkeypox. This vaccine has been recommended only in people who have been exposed or likely to be exposed to monkeypox.
  • Antiviral medication (for animals).

What exactly is Lupus?

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that happens when the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissues because it is overactive.

An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your body’s own immune system is responsible for the inflammation and breakdown of its own cells.

Therefore, this condition causes inflammation, swelling and damage to joints and body organs, including the skin, heart, and kidneys, among others.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF LUPUS?

The cause of lupus is currently unknown. However, there are risk factors that could cause lupus. They include;

  • Environmental factors like amount of sunshine you are exposed to, medications you take or even stress can all be possible causes of lupus.
  • Family history: if you have a family member who has lupus, your chance of getting lupus is increased.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS?

This depends mainly on the part of body affected. However, the most common signs and symptoms include;

  • High fever
  • Joint pains
  • Rashes, including a butterfly rash on the face.
  • Body aches
  • Sores in the nose and mouth
  • Skin lesions (skin lupus)
  • Headaches.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE LUPUS?

Lupus is usually diagnosed by your healthcare professional through assessment of symptoms, physical examinations, X-rays and lab tests.

HOW DO YOU LIVE WITH LUPUS?

It is important to maintain a healthy diet when dealing with lupus. Therefore, some top anti-inflammatory foods that can help with lupus management are:

  1. Fish: The DHA and EPA found in fatty fish including sardines and tuna which can reduce the inflammation that leads to numerous medical conditions including heart disease. This you can find in Nature’s Field Omegol plus 3-6-9.
  2. Fruits and Vegetables: These are loaded with antioxidants and natural plant compounds that fight inflammation.
  3. Whole Grains: People with lupus should try and eat whole grains instead of refined ones. These grains include rice, barley, oatmeal, etc.
  4. Yoghurt and Diary: Healthy bacteria found in yogurt and other dairy products can reduce disease symptoms in some people with lupus. As a result, eating foods high in calcium and vitamin D is important for people with lupus because they have an increased risk for osteoporosis. You can also add calcium and vitamin D supplement like Nature’s Field Super Calcium +Vitamin D3 which is paramount for effective prevention of osteoporotic fractures.

SELFCARE FOR LUPUS
Making some changes to your lifestyle can also help reduce flare ups due to lupus. These changes include; avoid smoking, exercise regularly, improve on your stress management and don’t forget to take Nature’s Field Super Calcium + D3 and Nature’s Field Omegol plus 3-6-9, coupled with a healthy diet to improve your condition significantly.

Cancer: Three key ways to prevent cancer

What is Cancer?

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These abnormal cells are termed cancer cells, malignant cells, or tumor cells. These cells can infiltrate normal body tissues. Many cancers and the abnormal cells that compose the cancer tissue are further identified by the name of the tissue that the abnormal cells originated from (for example, breast cancerlung cancerand colorectal cancer). Cancer is not confined to humans; animals and other living organisms can get cancer. There are over 200 types of cancer.

The incidence of cancer and cancer types are influenced by many factors such as age, gender, race, local environmental factors, diet, and genetics. Despite the fatality risks which cancer poses, there are three key ways to prevent it. Consequently, the incidence of cancer and cancer types vary depending on these variable factors. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) provides the following general information about cancer worldwide. Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. It accounted for 8.2 million deaths (around 22% of all deaths not related to communicable diseases; most recent data from WHO).

What are the common symptoms of Cancer?  

Common signs and symptoms of cancer in both men and women include:
-1.Pain. Bone cancer often hurts from the beginning and some brain tumors cause headaches that last for days.

-2. Weight loss without trying: It’s often one of the signs that cancer patients notice first.

-3. Fatigue: Feeling tired all the time even after resting

-4. Prolong fever that persists for more than 3 days.

-5. Changes of Skin: If it’s darkened, looks yellow or red, itches, or sprouts more hair, or if you have an unexplained rash, it could be a sign of liver, ovarian, or kidney cancer, or lymphoma.

-6. Sores that don’t heal. Spots that bleed and won’t go away are also signs of skin cancer.

-7. Cough or hoarseness that doesn’t go away. A cough is one sign of lung cancer.

-8.Unusual bleeding. Cancer can make blood show up where it shouldn’t be.

-9. Anemia. This is when your body doesn’t have enough red blood cells in the bone marrow. Cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma can damage your marrow.

How do I prevent cancer?

There are three key ways to prevent cancer; avoid tobacco, maintain a healthy weight, practice safer sex, and avoid risky behaviors. You should take hepatitis vaccines, and make sure your diet contains nutrients that help prevent cancers. These 3 diet tips will guide you;

-1. Eat Foods Rich in Antioxidants like such as vitamin C, lycopene, and beta-carotene, which are in many fruits and vegetables like strawberries, carrots, spinach, and garlic.

-2. Eat whole-grain foods: Whole grains contain other substances that might battle cancer, including lignans, which act as antioxidants, and saponins, which could keep cancer cells from multiplying. You should look for bread labeled “100% whole wheat” rather than simply “wheat bread,” which likely contains refined grains.

-3. Take Supplements that help prevent cancers: High-Quality supplements like Nature’s Field Vitamin C 1000mg, Nature’s Field Selenium 200mcg, Nature’s Field Immune Defence, Nature’s Field Mega Garlic, and Nature’s Field Vitamin E

 

 

 

 

Diabetes: 9 early signs you must know

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, (blood sugar) is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps to convert the glucose to energy. It is estimated that 415 million people worldwide live with this disease and 46% of them remain undiagnosed. People with prediabetes have higher-than-normal blood sugar levels, but doctors do not consider them to have diabetes yet.

The risk factors of diabetes include: being overweight, a family history of the disease, having a high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol level lower than 40 mg/dL or 50 mg/dL, a history of high blood pressure, having gestational diabetes or giving birth to a child with a birth weight of more than 9 pounds, a history of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), being more than 45 years of age, as well as having a sedentary lifestyle.

9 early signs of Diabetes that you must watch out for are;

 

-1. Frequent urination: You always experience a need to urinate more frequently, particularly at night.

-2.Increased thirst: The frequent urination causes dehydration and leads to a person feeling more thirsty than usual.

-3. Always feeling hungry: People with diabetes often do not get enough energy from the food they eat. As a result, they often feel constantly hungry, regardless of how recently they have eaten.

-4. Feeling very tired: This tiredness occurs as a result of insufficient sugar moving from the bloodstream into the body’s cells.

-5. Blurry vision: An excess of sugar in the blood can damage the tiny blood vessels in the eyes, which can cause blurry vision.

-6.Slow healing of wounds: High levels of sugar in the blood can damage the body’s nerves and blood vessels, and such wounds may take weeks or months to heal.

-7.Numbness, or pain in the hands or feet: This condition is known as neuropathy, and it can worsen over time and lead to more serious complications if the diabetes is not treated.

-8. Patches of dark skin: Patches of dark skin forming on the creases of the neck, armpit also signifies a higher risk of diabetes.

9. Itching on your body:  Excess sugar in the blood and urine provides food for yeast, which can lead to an infection that itches.

Taking cognizance of these symptoms is not just enough but making the move to tackle it while it is sill early. With the Nature’s field Dia-K premium formula, one can prevent its escalation to the life threatening stage.

Beating invisible Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It gets worse over time. It’s often linked to a build-up of pressure inside your eye. Glaucoma tends to run in families. You usually don’t get it until later in life.

The increased pressure in your eye, called intraocular pressure, can damage your optic nerve, which sends images to your brain. If the damage worsens, glaucoma can cause permanent vision loss or even total blindness within a few years.

Most people with glaucoma have no early symptoms or pain. Visit your eye doctor regularly so they can diagnose and treat glaucoma before you have long-term vision loss.

If you lose vision, it can’t be brought back. But lowering eye pressure can help you keep the sight you have. Most people with glaucoma who follow their treatment plan and have regular eye exams are able to keep their vision.

RISK FACTORS

You’re more likely to get it if you:

-Are of African American, Irish, Russian, Japanese, Hispanic, Inuit, or Scandinavian descent
-Are over 40
-Have a family history of glaucoma
-Have poor vision
-Have diabetes
-Take certain steroid medications such as prednisone
-Have had an injury to your eye or eyes
-Have corneas that are thinner than usual
-Have high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or sickle cell anemia
-Have high eye pressure
-Are near sighted or farsighted

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness, but with early treatment in addition to Nature’s Field Eye Cap, the damage may get limited and sight may be saved. #WorldGlaucomaWeek

Coronavirus: 10 things you need to know

Coronaviruses are types of viruses that affect the respiratory tract of mammals, including humans. They cause common cold, pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).

Here are 10 things you need to know about Coronavirus;

-1. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, which means they can be transmitted between animals and humans.

-2. Human coronaviruses has a unique pathogenesis because it causes both upper and lower respiratory tract infections.

-3. Among humans, corona infection most often occurs during the winter months as well as early spring.

-4. Flu-like symptoms usually set in from 2 to 4 days after coronavirus infection. Other symptoms include; sneezing, a runny nose, fatigue, cough, in rare cases, fever, sore throat and exacerbated asthma

-5. Coronavirus can spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes without covering the mouth.

-6. Touching or shaking hands with a person that has coronavirus can pass the virus from one person to another.

-7. Making contact with a surface or object that is infected with the virus and then touching your nose, eyes, or mouth can get you infected with the virus.

-8. Young people are most likely to contract a coronavirus, and people can contract more than one infection over the course of a lifetime.

-9. Covering the mouth and nose with a tissue or handkerchief while coughing or sneezing can also help prevent the spread of a this virus.

-10. There are no vaccines available to protect you against coronavirus infection. You may be able to reduce your risk of infection by wash your hands often with soap, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands and avoid close contact with people who are sick.
