Common Causes of Asthma and Holistic Options

Asthma is a typical condition that prompts breathing trouble, hacking, and wheezing. It is created by a mix of inflammation and spasms of the small airways of the lungs, both of which disable the capacity of the lungs to exchange air.

Natural treatments for asthma are wrapped around key principals: reducing allergies is the main one. 

Aggravations that trigger signs of allergies (allergens) can also trigger signs and manifestations of asthma. Asthma triggers are not quite the same from individual to individual and can incorporate;

  • Physical Exercising (work out prompted asthma)
  • Chilled Air
  • Respiratory infections, such as the head cold
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease, an ailment that pushes stomach acid back up into the throat. 
  • Salt acids and preservatives added to types of foods and beverages
  • Stress
  • Air irritants and carcinogens 
  • Airborne substances, such as dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, or  cockroach waste
  • Beta Blocker medications (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen (Aleve)

Nutrients in Natural Asthma Treatment

Nutrients that are important in the treatment of asthma include vitamins C, B6, and B12, and the minerals selenium and molybdenum. There have been 11 clinical studies since 1973 which have studied the use of vitamin C in the treatment of asthma, seven of which showed significant improvement. Vitamin B12 and molybdenum both act to reduce sensitivity to sulfites, a common ingredient in restaurant foods which aggravates asthma in an estimated 5-10% of people with asthma. Urine testing is available in our office to determine if someone has sulfite sensitivity that may be contributing to their asthma.

Broccoli, broccoli sprouts, Brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables:

These contain many antioxidants and a key compound called sulforaphane. Researchers from UCLA state, “A major advantage of sulforaphane is that it appears to increase a broad array of antioxidant enzymes, which may help the compound’s effectiveness in blocking the harmful effects of air pollution. We found a two-to-three-fold increase in antioxidant enzymes in the nasal airway cells of study participants who had eaten a preparation of broccoli sprouts. This strategy may offer protection against inflammatory processes and could lead to potential treatments for a variety of respiratory conditions.”

black cumin seeds (nigella sativa)  from GreenMedInfo

The potent black seed known as nigella Sativa never disappoints. This small seed proves that food can be a powerful asthma medication alternative. In the past, it has been known as the remedy for everything “Except death” lol 

 

 

 

 

 

Met Gala 2017 Favorites “ReiKawakubo”

I really pay attention to this event in hopes that my favorite celebrity will opt for something ethical, sustainable, or repurposed. After searching all night I haven’t found anyone yet, hopefully, some ethical designers will unveil their design this week. 

UPDATE: 

Did you catch what Gisele Bündchen wore? She walked the carpet at the in a bespoke gown for the crafted from organic silk and glass-bead by Stella McCartney (made entirely out of sustainable materials)

Livia Firth of GCC-EcoAge‘s  gown at the  was made from leaves?

Talk about eco fashion at it’s shiniest. 

Future WINS for being both on theme and sustainable 

Future getting help with the bow tie for his organic silk shirt. Bobby Wesley Williams, his stylist, right, persuaded him to wear an H&M suit.

Future rocked a made-to-measure look by Swedish H&M for the 71st annual Met Gala.

“We wanted to pay tribute to [Rei] Kawakubo in our own way, by focusing on themes that are always present in her work,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, who serves as H&M’s head of design. The duo had a series of “amazing” creative talks about possible fabric options, custom design possibilities and played with the themes present in Comme des Garçons collections while staying true to Future’s personal style, to develop his eye-catching red carpet outfit.”

His look was of classic updated tailcoat. The outfit is made with a blend of wool and the sustainable materials of organic silk and Tencel. By embellishing the back with a hand-embroidered black skull and a red Swarovski crystal heart, showcases a bit of his style with an inspired Rei look, on his tall slip frame.

Vevers and Young were the ones to create and style Selena Gomez for the Met Gala. They went for an effortless and easy look, focusing on Selena’s elements and what she loves. They worked together to create an elegantly detailed dress the two used vintage lace found around New York City, making this dress sustainable and ethical. The beading elements to the piece perfectly mimic Coach’s prints, while also playing up the nostalgic vintage inspired looks from the 30’s.

I did enjoy Liu Wen’s outfit that looked like it was made of recycled denim.

For now, here are my favorite picks of the rockstars who stuck with the theme.

Remake the Starbucks “Unicorn Frappuccino”

Why?

This item seems to be the hottest item right now, and its “Limited Edition”

When I fall in love with something, I don’t want it to be limited edition. I’d like to be in control of my desires. If Unicorn, frap or smoothie is what I want Unicorn is what I will get.

Let’s start with:

The fact that the Starbuck’s Unicorn Frap is a limited edition cup of “sugar, milk, sugar, and more sugar.” I’m almost sure no one spends their money in hopes of consuming a colorful sugary drink with absolutely NO health benefits. The health department slammed Starbucks’s because in actuality, this colorful drink packs more sugar than a ½ a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts. Feeding right into your crave of getting diabetes .. I’m kidding, but could you imagine? I personally think Krispy Kreme should be illegal. It’s like grade a cocaine, a true addicts delight.

According to Starbucks Press release, “The magical drink is “blended crème” with “mango syrup” and layered with a “blue sour drizzle, It’s then topped with whipped cream and a dusting of pink and blue powder. The drink starts as a purple color with swirls of blue, and changes color and flavor with each stir going from sweet and fruity to tangy and tart”

The healthy part of the Frap is actually the vibrant colors. Kudos to Starbuck’s on that. The blue comes from spirulina (naturally-blue algae) and the pink is a mixture of fruit sources like radish, sweet potatoes, cherry, and apple.

The not so healthy part of the Frap is everything else. The drink is a princes’s concoction of ice, crème Frappuccino syrup, milk, whipped crème, and mango syrup. They also include natural and artificial flavoring that cannot clearly be sourced lol. Down the rabbit hole of questionable ingredients and mysterious labels.

What do we really care about at NerdDNA?

Nutrition …. Nutrition …. Nutrition …. Nutrition   …… …… And more Nutrition

    Whip cream, Whole Milk grams of fat Grams Saturated Grams of Sugar 
Grande 16 oz 401 cal. 16 10 59
Venti 24 oz 500 cal. 18 11 76
Tall 12 oz 280 cal. 13 8 39
    Skim Milk      
Tall 12 oz 170 cal. 0.5   37

A caffeine-free Venti or Grande will put you over your daily limit according to the FDA which recommends no more than fifty grams of sugar added daily. Since there’s actually no coffee your getting a straight sugar rush which typically leads people to crash. To set the record straight, I would love to try this color and flavor-changing marvel out at Starbucks, It’s just not up to my personal health code. I would like to give proper credit to Starbucks for using vegetable-based colorings like spirulina and using radish and sweet potato!

Let’s look at some healthier substitutions; 

– Ice = Ice
– Milk = Almond or Soy milk
– Flavors = Fruit Blueberries for blue and Beets and berries for red
– Dairy Whip = Soy, Coconut or Rice Whip or vegan whipped cream
– Mango Syrup = DIY Mango Syrup or Real Mango or more fruit or lemon or lime juice
– Blue Drizzle = E3Live Blue Majik algae powder blended with Key Lime or Lemon almond yogurt
– Blue Powder = E3Live on top + some lemon zest if you’d like!

What is Malaria – Popular Travel Vaccines

Malaria is mosquito born, it’s an infectious disease that affects plants and animals caused by nasty parasites. 

 

Other Causes 

  • Unhygienic living conditions and surroundings.
  • Terrible food habits – Eating tinned and fleshy foods.
  • Consuming alcohol lowers a person’s resistance because your body naturally uses your immune system to instead remove the alcohol. This makes a person vulnerable to any disease like malaria.


Malaria causes symptoms that commonly consist of fever, vomiting, feeling tired and complications. In extreme cases, it may trigger yellow skin, coma, seizures, or dying. Symptoms usually begin ten to fifteen days after being bitten. If now not properly treated, human beings may have recurrences of the disease months later

In those who’ve currently survived a contamination, reinfection typically reasons milder signs and symptoms. This partial resistance disappears over months to years if the individual has no continuing exposure to the infection.

The sickness is typically transferred by a tainted female mosquito. The bug bite introduces the parasites from the mosquito’s saliva into an individual’s bloodstream. The parasitic bug heads to the liver to reproduce and mature. 

  

The threat of infection may be decreased by way of stopping mosquito bites via the use of mosquito nets, repellents and draining still water. Several medication options are accessible to prevent travelers from catching malaria in regions the epidemic is common. 

The epidemic is popular in the tropical and subtropical areas around the equator. Vacationers to these regions should defend themselves from malaria through preventative measures like; stopping mosquito bites and taking medication to prevent malaria. Four different medications are typically used in the United Stated to prevent the disease while traveling: Chloroquine (Aralen), Atovone/proguanil (Malarone), doxycycline, and mefloqine (Lariam).

There is a NATURAL remedy

 

Cinnamon offers comfort from many associated signs of malaria. Grind cinnamon into a teaspoon of powder, boil in water, add one pinch of black pepper or cayenne pepper and honey.

Grapefruit extract incorporates herbal quinine substances beneficial for the curing of malaria. Boil a quarter of grapefruit and then strain the pulp.

Add ginger and raisins to a glass of water and boil this into a decoction and may be consumed once cooled down. Ginger root can be cut, a chunk may be used along with every 3 tblsp of raisins.

For more than 1600 years, herbalists have used leaves of the Artemisia annua, or sweet wormwood bush, to treat malaria. In the mid-1960s, artemisinin was identified as an active antimalarial ingredient. Garlic, especially when combined with the amino acid arginine and artemisinin is another natural option

TheThe World Health Organization announced Monday That it will try out the vaccine on people. They will start human testing. Almost 430,000 human beings die from the disease in 2015, and millions get ill with a malaria contamination each year. Some never completely recovering.

There has been enormous progress in fighting the epidemic. From 2000 to 2015, death from malaria reduced 62 %, the number of cases reduced by 21%, according to the WHO. There have been fewer deaths in large part because of better mosquito control and disease awareness, as well as sustained effort to get the right medicine to the right regions.

 

Reusable -vs- Disposable Nursing Pads

Nursing is such an intimate activity and healthy activity, but it’s more than just providing your baby with nourishment. It also involves cuddling and bonding with your baby. In my opinion, breastfeeding is equally as rewarding for the mom and baby, but others may disagree as it does come with sore nipples and leaking breast.

Nursing pads can help prevent embarrassing milk leaks from soaking through your clothes. They are available in both disposable or reusable options.

Which are the best option for you? Let’s talk about disposable nursing pads vs. reusable nursing pads.

Disposable nursing pads

Disposable nursing pads are made of a thin absorbent material that comes in different thicknesses similar to sanitary napkins. They usually come in a count of 50 to 216 when you pick up a box. They usually have sticky backs to adhere to your bra, which can impede breathability, they cause poor air circulation. When they get wet, it’s time for a new one.

Disposable nursing pads, contain absorbent chemicals that you put directly on your skin. Due to poor circulation allowance, they can lead to discomfort and trapped moisture. Breast infections thrive in moist environments because bacteria love warm and moist. If you’re leakier than normal, using disposable pads can not only become inconvenient but also expensive.

Reusable nursing pads

Reusable nursing pads are similar to disposable but healthier, and more breathable. Because they are made of natural fibers, cloth nursing pads provide better air circulation, which is necessary to aid in the sore nipple healing process. Rather than disposing of these, you simply wash and dry, even with your babies clothes. I recommend keeping them in a delicates sack, so you don’t loose them. 

Not only will you be saving the environment by reusing your pads, you will be saving your skin, and saving money. Washable nursing pads are much more economical. If you have more children in the future, you already have the nursing pads; they are designed to last.

Some women tend to wear both, as they do with baby diapers. Some prefer disposables, while out on the go, and reusables while in the house or close to home. Let’s face it if you’re a leaky mom, it can be embarrassing to be talking to friends while leaking through your shirt. Disposables can be more reliable in that sense.
