Know About Premature Ejaculation - Part 1

Premature Ejaculation Definition

Uncontrollable ejaculation, also called premature ejaculation is the most common sexual problem in men. 20-30% of men suffer from premature ejaculation. 

Ejaculation is the process of ejecting semen from the penis, and is usually accompanied by orgasm as a result of sexual stimulation. Most men experience premature ejaculation at least once in their lives. The ejaculation when not controlled, may occur spontaneously during sleep, or during the day. The ejaculation in that matter can occur with minimal sexual stimulation before, on, or shortly after penetration.

Home Remedies for Premature Ejaculation

How to Cure Premature Ejaculation with Natural Treatments

Add 1 spoon of green onion seeds into a glass of water, stir and sip before every meal. 
Have sex more often 
Exercise: when having sex try to stop the penetration every 30 seconds and continue, repeat for 5-6 times.

Practice makes perfect. "The simplest thing to do if you're a premature ejaculator is to have sex more often," says J. Francois Eid, M.D., director of the Erectile Dysfunction Unit at The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center in New York City . 

"For one thing, you're more likely to ejaculate prematurely if there's a long gap between sexual sessions. Besides, most men find they perform better with practice. You learn more about your body and your limitations."

Try the "stop-start" approach. This technique involves stimulating the penis almost to the point of ejaculation, then stopping; stimulating it again, then stopping; and repeating this until you learn to control your ejaculations, says Oakland, California, psychologist Bernie Zilbergeld, Ph.D., author of The New Male Sexuality.

Top Five Cancer - causing Foods !

1. Hot Dogs 

Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.

2. Processed meats and Bacon

Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.

3. Doughnuts 

Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.

4. French fries 

Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies

All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.

Symptoms & Causes of Cracked Foot / Heels

Cracked Foot 

Cracked Heels are very common. They can be painful, unattractive, and very upsetting especially to those of us who love sandals. Usually, cracked skin on our heels and feet is caused by excessively dry skin. For many it's worse in the winter months or for those who live in dry climates. But going barefoot and wearing shoes with open backs can exaserbate the problem, meaning that even in the summer our feet are in rough shape.

 Symptoms of cracked heels :

If the cracks are bad enough there will be pain on weight bearing, that is not there when weight is off the heel. The edges or rim around the heel will generally have a thicker area of skin (callus). Wearing open or thin soled shoes usually make the symptoms worse.

Causes of Cracked Heels :

* Dry skin.
* Prolonged standing.
 * Obesity.
 * Wearing shoes with an open back.
 * Heel Spurs.
 * Flat feet.
* Improperly fitting shoes.
* Athlete's foot.
* Thyroid disease.
* Diabetes.

Reduce Weight by Natural Ways - Part 3

Preparation of Home Remedies
According to ayurveda home remedies are prepared in the same way and with the same purpose as other ayurvedic medicines. The main aim is to obtain the maximum therapeutic benefit while making it palatable.

Some common methods of preparing home remedies are:

The juice may be taken from the fresh leaves, flowers or stems of the herb. The part of the herb used should be crushed or ground in a mortar and pestle, to make a paste. This paste should be put in a piece of cloth and squeezed to take out the juice.
Dosage: One to two tablespoons twice a day.

Dried herbs are used for powders. The herbs are usually dried in a cool, shady and well-ventilated place, although some herbs are dried in direct sunlight. The herbs are then ground into a fine powder and stored in a dry, airtight bottle. The powder may be taken with water, or if specified, with milk or honey.
Dosage: Half to one teaspoon twice a day

A decoction is prepared by boiling the herb in water (ratio: 1 part herb to 16 parts water). The herbs are broken into pieces and soaked in water overnight. This mixture is then boiled until it reduces to one quarter of the original volume. It is then filtered and stored in a glass bottle.
Dosage: One to two tablespoons twice a day.

Herbs are soaked in water to make an infusion (ratio: 1 part herb to 8 parts water). Hot infusions result from adding herbs to hot water, or gently heating but not boiling the mixture. This is strained and taken internally. Herbal teas are forms of hot infusions. Cold infusions are made from soaking the herb overnight. Honey can be added.
Dosage: half to one cup once or twice day.

A paste can be made from either fresh or dried herbs. The flowers, roots, stems, leaves or bark are ground and mixed with water. Pastes are mainly used for external application, in cases of cuts, burns and swellings. The paste should be thick enough to be applied in a layer to the skin.

The herbs should be first dried separately and then mixed together in a powder form, in fixed proportions. Water or herbal juice can be added to this powder to make a paste, from which tablets of a specific size or weight are made. Tablets remain potent longer than juices, powders, pastes or decoctions.
Dosage: 1 or 2 tablets twice a day.

Medicated ghee and oil
Ghee is cooked with herbal juices, decoctions or pastes. The ghee should be heated with the herbal mixture at a moderate, controlled temperature. High temperatures can easily burn the ghee or oil, destroying its effectiveness. Medicated ghee and oils are either used internally or massaged externally.
Dosage: Half to one tablespoon.

Health Mantra- Tips for Good Digestion - Part 2

Tips For Good Digestion  ( continued )

6. Don’t Overeat if you are stressed out

Avoid eating as an antidote to emotional pain.. Eating excess food of any kind may lead to digestion problems and weight gain.

7. Take Your Food in Time

The later you eat, the harder it gets to digest the food. If you have to have a late dinner, eat a small snack in advance, that way you won’t be very hungry at dinner time.

8. Exercise Regularly

Understand the benefit of regular exercise.

9. Create a Calm Atmosphere While Eating

Relax when you eat your meal. Eating when you are rushed increases your stress and slows down the digestive process.

10. Don’t Drink Cold Water With Your Meal

Drink warm or hot liquids while you have your meal.  Food is digested more efficiently at around body temperature, therefore cold fluid can slow down the digestive processes.

Health Mantra- Tips for Good Digestion - Part 1

Tips For Good Digestion

Digestion is the mechanical and chemical breaking down of food into smaller components, to a form that can be absorbed, for instance, into a blood stream. Digestion is a form of catabolism; a break-down of macro food molecules to smaller ones.

Here are some tips for good digestion.

1. Take Time and Eat Slowly

Eat slowly, to give your body time to release the enzymes that tell your brain you have had enough.

2. Avoid large meals

Big meal can make you feel sleepy, because it takes time to digest. When you consume five to six small-healthy meals every day, your body needs more calories to break down the food, thereby helping to raise your body metabolism.

3. Eat Fibre Rich Food

Fibre is an important source of roughage. The roughage component in fibre aids the digestive system, helping the body’s elimination process, and is therefore referred to as “Nature’s Broom”!

4. Drink Plenty of Water

You need to drink eight to ten glasses of water every day. Water regulates body temperature, assists the digestive system, transports nutrients and eliminates water from the body.

5. Avoid Frozen or Processed Food

Choose nutritious food rather than refined, processed food that are full of additives. To preserve nutrients, eat freshly cooked food rather than frozen or packaged food.
