What Are the Causes of Hemmorhoids and How Can You Cure Them?

What causes hemorrhoids in the first place?

A common misconception of hemorrhoids is that we strain a lot and that causes our veins down there to bleed and suddenly, we have enlarged veins that are suddenly hemorrhoids! This straining can be from bowel movements normally or can even be from pregnancy with women, too.

A lot of people are wondering: “Did nature just do a blunder here?”

After some intensive research in the world of alternative therapies, I have come to conclude that hemorrhoids are actually our bodies response to imbalances caused by modern day pollutions and practices that our bodies are not designed for.

Let’s take for example processed foods and sugars. Our bodies are not designed for intaking such a high volume of this pollutant.

Some examples of overly processed foods that we eat every day include:
- White Flour
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Hydrogenated Oils
- Refined Sugars

Naturally for many millenniums, we changed from eating predominantly hunter/gatherer style foods to processed foods. This used to be mostly fruits, greens, nuts, fish, and other whole foods, but now these are eaten less often.

Even the original agrarian society foods were closer to what we’re designed for than the mass produced, processed foods of today.

So when we consume all this refined stuff, our stool naturally takes a response to it. We then have problems with constipation, straining, etc and some of the other root causes for hemorrhoids.

Now, these elements are not enough to cause it, there’s also the issue of how we regulate and perform bowel movements. Check out section 8 of the H Miracle System and see what I mean on the illustration.

This is the reversed immediately to shrink a hemorrhoid regardless of the cause.

So what is a practical action to take?

If you have a hemorrhoid that is bleeding or itching, you need to start a predominantly vegetarian diet, add sweet potatoes (yams), and start to bring refined sugars out of your diet. This only has to be done for a few days while you’re doing the remedy process of H Miracle. Three to four days should be good.

With the H Miracle process, you only need to be on this strict diet for a few days. Once it is cured, you can revert fully back to your normal diet. However, you could come back.

Now that you know some of what causes are, check out the H Miracle System at NaturalHemorrhoidsCure.info and learn how to get rid of hemorrhoids!

Since you will be eating healthy anyways, why not throw in some ab exercises and get the body you have always dreamed of. Hemorrhoids are just another side effect of general unhealthiness so a good healthy lifestyle is a great cure.

The Best Way To Work Your Abs

There’s a bit of a debate going on on-line about ab exercises and which ones are the best (and worst) to use to tone and define the abdominal muscles.

The debate basically stems from the question of how the abs should be treated. Are they actually one muscle group? Or are they several muscle groups that should be worked on individually? Well, here are my thoughts for whatever they are worth.

I’ve applied ab exercise coming from both directions…i.e. treating the abs as one muscle group and “just” doing one major exercise for them (with variations like twists added) and as several separate muscle groups and hitting them from different directions. And the results from this (totally subjective and unscientific) experiment were interesting.

My favorite ab exercise has always been the incline crunch. That is, using a slant board and crunching several inches up and then back for as many reps/sets as I can do in one session. After the body adapted to the point where I could do 12 reps and 3 sets, I added weight, holding a 10 pound dumbbell to my chest, then as time went on adding more weight.

My theory for this exercise is simply that since I am on an incline, my entire group of ab muscles are involved in the movement, starting with the lower abs as I begin my crunch and working the mid and upper abs as I continue through the entire movement. And using heavier and heavier weight, to failure, encourages muscle growth rather than simple toning. To tone, I would have simply increased my number of reps per set rather than add weight. Btw, I don’t like sit-ups and I discourage anyone from doing them, simply because the lower back and hip flexors get involved in the exercise and there’s a real chance of injury from that exercise.

I also went at the abs from the other direction. That is, I would do regular crunches and also add hip thrusts and/or leg lifts to work the lower abs separately. I also did “the bicycle” routine for awhile, which has been recognized by researchers at the American Council on Exercise as “the best” ab exercise out there. And I have to agree that it is an excellent workout for the abs. However, you can only add weight to “the bicycle” if you use wrist and/or ankle weighs, which is an added expense and a waste of money, IMO.

So, which is the best way to work on the abs? Well, try them all! And then go with the one(s) that you enjoy and feel will do the best job on your abs. Personally, I will stick to my incline crunches. I’m getting great depth/definition from this workout, I can freely add weight as I go and my risk of injury is minimal. But of course your mileage may vary!

What are the Best Ab Exercises Workout for Stomach Fat Loss for Women?

A lot of people are confused about what exactly are the best ab exercises for women. What most women want is to have flat, sexy abs and have been taught to do hours of cardio and hundreds of crunches to get there. This is not the most effective way to get flat, sexy abs. When you do cardio, you need to take a different approach to increase the fat burning effect and you need new ab exercises. I will show you some ideas for mixing up your cardio workout and tell you what I think are the best ab exercises for women.

Let’s start with cardio because this is the where many women spend hours a day trying to walk (or run) away their belly fat. As I said above, this is not the best way to get rid of belly fat. Cardio can be good for burning fat, but you have to get your body into fat burning mode before that happens. This can take up to 20 minutes so if you are only doing 20 minutes of cardio, you may not be burning very much fat.

Doing cardio at a steady pace can also cause you problems if you are trying to burn a lot of fat because your body adapts to what you are doing and you don’t get as much benefit as you would if you change intensity. One good method is to change intensity every minute or two. For example, start out slow to warm up, then speed up every a couple minutes until you are going as fast as you can. After you exercise at peak intensity for a couple minutes, slow down to warm up speed and start the process over. This is a much more intense workout that burns more calories and more fat than a steady pace.

Even though I don’t think cardio is the best way to burn fat, it is still important to do. Just focus on high intensity or interval type training and you will get better results. You should only do this 3 or 4 days a week and plan on doing something that will help you burn fat 24 hours a day at least 2 or 3 days a week. I am talking about strength training.

The same as it is with men, the best ab exercises for women women focus on building muscle. This will give you a firmer body and build the muscle that I just mentioned would burn fat all day long. You don’t need to go to the gym and pump iron like a body builder, but you do need to make your muscles stronger. You can easily accomplish this without weights if you want. Doing simple, body weight only exercises like squats, push ups, lunges, and crunches will give you a really good full body workout without ever picking up a dumbbell. You can even do the exercises quickly, changing from one exercise to the next without a break and get your heart rate up and get a cardio workout while you are strengthening your muscles.

Strength training really is the best ab exercise for women and men. It firms up your body and helps you burn fat so the next time somebody asks you what the best ab exercises for women are, you can tell them how to change their workout routine and their physique. When you combine this with a healthy diet and all natural supplements like the ever popular acai berries, you will have the body of your dreams in no time.

You should check with your doctor before starting any diet or exercise program to make sure there aren’t any hidden health issues you should know about. In most cases, there isn’t anything that will prevent you from exercising or dieting, but you should check to be sure.

Great Ways To Lose Tummy Fat With exercises to lose your tummy

Are you tired of doing sit up after sit up with little results?

If you are looking to tone your tummy then you need to start thinking a bit differently when it comes to getting a toned tummy you need to workout your entire body if you want that fat to go away. Why? Well, your body stores fat in many different ways. One is to put fat around your tummy so it can use later for energy. However, this is one of the last places the body will use energy(fat) from. One key point to note is that your body will lose weight in the reverse order it put fat on.

If you got fat on you tummy before you gain a bunch of weight or decided to lose weight. Then that tummy fat will be the last place for your body to burn that energy from. Many people try to target train their midsection. Doing a core workout is still really good for your body. Don’t stop doing this. It is still really important that you work your stomach muscles and build strength within your core. Having a strong core helps with posture, back problems and helps get a flatter tummy. However you should include a variety of cardio workout programs to get your heart pumping and those calories burning.

So why is burning calories with running, jogging or a fasted paced walk helping your tummy section? Well, like I said before, when you work your midsection you want to also lose the fat around this area. Running or jogging is going to increase your metabolism and that is going to burn more calories. Another key to losing your tummy fat faster besides doing exercises to tighten your abs is to ear properly. Yes, if you workout hard but don’t eat properly, then you are never going to lose that tummy fat and you will have wasted your time doing tummy exercises. Eating around 2000 calories a day for woman and 2200 for men, you will see that fat also disappear a bit faster. Your body does not need you to eat 3 big meals a day for you to live. In fact, if you eat 5 smaller meals a day, your body is continually being fed.

Eating food stimulates the digestive system, which also uses a great deal of calories to process the food you eat. So as you can see, when you eat right and less, your body will thank you and show that thanks by not carrying fat. If you continue to miss breakfast, your body will think it is in survivor mode and keep some of the food you eat throughout the day as fat. Don’t miss breakfast. Get a tummy exercise workout.

Low Carb Dieting For Successful Weight Loss. Points to Know

Low carb dieting has become fashionable in recent years especially with the publication of the Atkins diet. Losing weight is a goal for so many people and everybody is looking for the quick and easy way to lose weight. Some people do not need to lose weight at all but still get stressed over a couple of pounds. Others need to lose for medical reasons and may have one hundred pounds or more that they want to shed.

There are many different diets out there including low carbohydrate diets and the truth is that most of them will achieve weight loss if they are followed correctly. This does not mean always doing what the diet says every moment of every day. What is more important is how you deal with the inevitable occasion when you eat too much or feast on foods that are not on the plan. If you can write this off and return to the plan without giving yourself a hard time, you are likely to succeed. Everybody has those days – the important thing is to let them go and accept them as just another step on the road to permanent weight loss.

It is also important to find a diet that you can easily follow. Low carb diets suit many people because the rules are quite simple. As the name suggests, the diet consists of avoiding or limiting foods that are high in carbohydrates. These include bread, pasta, potatoes, rice and other grains. Sugar is also a carbohydrate. Once you understand what these foods are, it is a simple matter to choose dishes that avoid them.

Most criticism of low carbohydrate dieting is based on the fact that the dieters will get most of their daily calories from meat, dairy and other high fat products. This can lead to high cholesterol and other problems related to a high intake of saturated fats. Medical advice is advised before starting this type of diet. Sometimes weight loss is good in the early stages but people cannot handle the restrictions in the longer term and start to deviate from the diet.

One of the problems that many people have with low carb dieting is the elimination of bread and pasta. No more toast, spaghetti or pizza! Many of the foods that are quickest to prepare are based around carbohydrates – burgers in their buns, fries, sandwiches, pasta and sauce. Beer and other alcoholic drinks are high in carbs too. It is true that alcohol is generally restricted on any diet, because it is high in calories and very low in nutritional value, but low carb diets put particular emphasis on this.

Still there are many foods that can be enjoyed on a low carb diet. If you are fond of meat you will relish the opportunity to consume beef, chicken and other animal products. The popularity of these diets is clear from the length of time that they stay on the bestseller lists. It is just a matter of what suits you. Low carb dieting works for many people.

There is a Cosmetic Tooth Procedure for Almost Every Dental Problem

New advances in dental science have made a wide range of cosmetic teeth procedures available to the general population. Some are very basic treatments that can be performed in one or two office visits. Others are very complicated procedures that require the use of very advanced technology and special dental training. Go to Painless Dentistry for more information.

Specialists in cosmetic dentistry take a great deal of time to study the specific individual needs of every patient and come up with a plan that maximizes that particular persons smile and overall quality of life. Cosmetic teeth procedures fall into a number of specific categories, and are intended to be customized to the needs of the individual patient through a treatment plan specific to that person that is developed by the dentist.

One of the most common problems people face as they get older is the discoloration of their teeth. Even a normal diet can, over time, cause teeth to take on a yellowish appearance. The use of caffeine and tobacco only compound the problem. To correct this, dentist may opt for one of two very simple and painless cosmetic teeth procedures: tooth whitening or cosmetic dental veneers.

Tooth whitening is done with a special bleaching gel that is applied in the dental office. For two weeks after the initial office visit, the patient will apply a similar gel using a special tray custom molded to his or her upper and lower jaws. Normally, this takes only 20 minutes each evening, and requires brushing teeth with special toothpaste like Sensodyne.

At the end of the two weeks, the patient returns for a final bleaching session, at which time more gel is applied, and a high intensity light is used to seal the results.

If the enamel is too deeply stained for the gel to remove, the dentist may opt to use cosmetic dental veneers made from porcelain. These veneers are extremely hard and stain resistant. Veneers are one of the more popular cosmetic teeth procedures because they can last for many years, and offer the additional benefit of correcting minor alignment problems and tooth chipping and pitting. Refer to Dentistry Sandton for more information.

Another cosmetic teeth procedure that is rapidly becoming a dental mainstay is cosmetic bonding. Bonding is done with a special composite resin that matches the color of teeth. It is applied to cracks and cavities when soft, and then allowed to harden. Dental bonding achieves the same results that the amalgam fillings of the past achieved in terms of repairing holes in teeth.

However, the bonding resin blends more naturally with tooth enamel than metal fillings do, and it does not expand and contract with changes in temperature the way metal does. It is much safer to use in the human mouth, and much easier on teeth as a result.

More complex cosmetic teeth procedures have to be used when teeth are badly damaged or lost. Dental crowns made from porcelain offer the best solution to a tooth that has lost a large portion of its surface area due to an accident or tooth decay.

The crown is shaped to match the size of the tooth in its original state and the proportions of surrounding, healthy teeth. When it is placed over the tooth, it looks and functions like a natural tooth.

Dental crowns also play a significant role in the most advanced of cosmetic teeth procedures, dental implants. Implants are basically artificial tooth roots made from titanium alloy that screw into the jaw bone itself. Once the bone grows around the implant, a crown is used to cover the alloy and create the appearance of a normal, natural tooth.

Cosmetic dental implants are a much better tooth replacement option than dentures because they are permanently set in the bone and can be used to chew any foods typical of a normal, healthy diet. Visit Dentistry Johannesburg for further information. for further information.
