With an increasing emphasis on beauty and age defiance in North American society, everyone seems to be seeking ways to make themselves appear younger by taking better care of their skin. While it is true that skin is one of the keys to a healthy, youthful appearance, not all skin care treatments that are proposed, or even that are popular, are effective.

With an increasing emphasis on beauty and age defiance in North American society, everyone seems to be seeking ways to make themselves appear younger by taking better care of their skin. While it is true that skin is one of the keys to a healthy, youthful appearance, not all skin care treatments that are proposed, or even that are popular, are effective. Here are some of the top myths when it comes to skin care.

1) Acne. Acne is the bane of everyone from their teenage years and onward. There are so many false rumors out there concerning acne that an article could be written on them alone. To start with, acne does not cease miraculously when you are out of your teens. In some people, acne is a perpetual problem and will continue throughout their lives. Many of the false ideas about acne are extremely detrimental to people who are afflicted with the condition. Acne is not a sign that an individual does not wash their face. In fact, many individuals with acne will be told this by their peers and the result will be extremely counter-productive; they end up washing their faces too much. The dryer skin does not clear out the acne problem, instead it exacerbates it. Acne may be aggravated by certain foods in an individual’s diet, but rarely are the “suspect foods?(chocolate, French fries, or pizza) the main trigger. Finally, remember that acne can be treated by several types of medicine on the market today-and effectively- so it is all right to go to your doctor and consult her about acne treatments.

2) Tanning. Tanning is often advertised as adding a warm, healthy glow to your skin. The truth is, nothing is worse for your skin than direct exposure to the harmful ultraviolet rays that are necessary to tan, whether you are on a bed or in the sun. Tanning may help to get rid of formed acne, but it will not prevent new pores from clogging. Tanning has little benefits beyond immediate aesthetic appeal, and in the long run it will prove harmful to your skin. It is best to use sun block whenever you are out in the sun.

3) Moisturizers. Many people think that moisturizers will help in making their skin appear more youthful by getting rid of wrinkles. This is not the case. Moisturizers will help to lubricate the skin and lessen dryness, but they will not serve to repair the microscopic damage at the cell level that wrinkles represent.

4) Skin Care ingredients. For many years, top beauticians have placed slices of cucumber over the eyes of their clients in order to reduce skin damage and swelling. Today, you will find many products on the shelves that depict a cucumber or slice of cucumber and claim to include cucumber extracts that will help rejuvenate your skin. The fact is that it is not any particular mineral in the cucumber that is beneficial to the skin, it is the fact that cucumbers are mostly made of water, which leeches into the skin during the process and gives the appearance of re-invigoration.

All of these myths are used today to help sell products via a method known as scare tactics. In fact, if you follow the advice of your doctor most of your skin care needs will be resolved, and they will not require a lot of home grown methods and wives tale rumors.

Near infrared (NIR) diode laser low-intensity (soft) phototherapy with the topical application of indocyanine green (ICG) has been suggested for treatment of acne vulgaris. Acne scarring, formerly treated with excision and dermabrasion, has benefitted from newer alternatives, such as fillers and non-ablative laser treatments. The prinicpal advantage of laser and light-based treatment of acne is safety. Whether or not laser treatments should be used as first-line treatment for acne, or even for prevention of acne, remains unclear at this time.

Any vision that is already lost prior to the laser treatment, in general, will not return. In general, loss of vision after a laser treatment is usually FROM progression of the glaucoma disease and not FROM the laser per se. However, the immediate vision loss caused by laser treatment must be measured against the more severe vision loss that could result from untreated retinopathy. However, the vision loss caused by laser treatment is mild compared with the vision loss that may be caused by untreated retinopathy. Following the laser treatment the vision is quite blurred for about a week and after that vision largely recovers. Some people will notice decreased side vision or decreased night vision after laser treatment to stop bleeding. Therefore, floaters or spots in your vision will not necessarily go away after laser treatment.

Immediately after the laser, your vision will be blurred because of the bright lights and jelly used for the special laser treatment lens. Peripheral, color or night vision may be reduced after surgery from widespread laser treatment, but the majority of sight can be saved. Even if vision cannot be improved, laser surgery may help to limit visual loss and minimize damage that would have occurred without treatment. It is important to realize that laser treatment does not usually improve vision, but is aimed at prevention of further visual loss.

This is common with laser treatment and may either take the form of lightening of the skin (Hypo-pigmentation) or darkening (Hyper-pigmentation).

Bowel related problems have become an integral part of the lives of the average Americans, thanks to the abundance of fast foods in their diet. Low vitality, stomach bloat, poor digestion– are all the natural corollaries of irregular bowel movements. Add to it foul body odor, bad breath and a lackluster skinÂ…together they indicate to one common point and that is; your colon is not in the proper state and it needs immediate attention.

Now the question is how do you ensure the health of your colon? It is simple, go for colon cleansing at regular intervals. There are mainly two different ways to cleanse the colon. The first is to consume high fiber supplements and second is to flush the colon with water. In the second case where the colon is provided large amount of fluids, it actually flushes itself to get rid of the fecal matters and toxins accumulated in its walls for years. The end result is: you get a clean inside and get back the vitality of health.

How does the colon flush help you to get back to the previous healthy and energetic state? To know this you have to first learn the importance of colon with regard to our over all health.

Colon is the organ responsible for conserving water in the body and eliminating the wastes from system. It also stimulates the growth of the beneficial organisms that help our body to absorb the essential nutrients like vitamin K or B complex. As a result of growing age, flawed dietary practice, stress and exposure to pollution robs our colon off its natural resilience. The passage of elimination no longer remains smooth and fecal matters are built up in the walls of colon leading to accumulation of toxins. These toxins are circulated over other parts of the body through blood and the lymphatic system. This results in a number of disorders like diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, poor skin, joint pains, and depression.

Now a good colon cleansing system is one which is divided into three steps: first it prepares the colon by creating the right environment for starting with the next and most important step of flushing. It can be achieved by consuming oral supplements.

Colon flush is the second step in which all the encrusted waste materials are flushed away from the digestive system. In this step, mainly the fluids are used to force out the internal debris accumulated for years. Also known as hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation, a colon flush ensures a thoroughly cleansed intestine.

In the last stage helpful Probiotics are introduced to support the overall health of digestive system.

In a nut shell, colon flush destroys the causes of toxin build up in the body. This is a process that triggers off energy regeneration naturally. Colon flush enables your body to repair itself and thus keeps the dangerous diseases at bay.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD does not have any cure. But with the help of medicines and cessation of smoking, it can be kept under control. Different types of medicines cure different types of symptoms. Mucus, breathlessness, cough and fatigue are all the symptoms of COPD. Based on the intensity of the particular symptom and the prescription given by your doctor, you can use one or more than five types of medicines available to keep COPD under control.

Bronchodilators help ease breathing. The medicine in a bronchodilator opens up the airways of your lungs and eases breathing. Oxygen therapy is suggested if it is becoming difficult for your body to get enough oxygen into your bloodstream. Oxygen therapy lessens breathlessness and improves physical stamina in patients suffering from COPD.

COPD patients often suffer bacterial inflections that can cause severe flare-ups in the lungs. In such cases, antibiotics are used to kill the bacteria. Different antibiotics such as Cipro, Amoxil, Septra, etc., kill different bacteria. Sometimes, because of extreme flare-ups in the lungs, a COPD patient may experience flu and pneumonia. Here, vaccines are given to decrease the intensity of the symptom.

Some COPD patients experience severe cough and inflammation in the lungs. These patients are prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs. These medicines are usually in the form of corticosteroids. Anti-inflammatory medicines reduce cough and inflammation in the airways of the lungs. Usually, the patient inhales them. Although corticosteroids are primarily given to asthma patients, they can also help those COPD patients suffering from severe cough and inflammation in the lungs.

Based on the symptoms and the individual reactions to the medicines, doctors prescribe various medicines. But all COPD patients should take some precautions while they use these medicines. Taking the medicines as directed, not stopping them without consulting the doctor, not sharing the medicines with other patients, planning for the refills well ahead of time and being well aware of the effects and side effects of a medicine before you start taking them etc., can be extremely beneficial in containing the symptoms of COPD.

Contact your physician if you experience any side effects from these medicines. They can be increased shortness of breath, allergic reactions, prolonged nausea, vomiting, prolonged muscle cramps, or heart palpitations, white spots in the mouth and vaginal itching.
