1. Heavy and painful menstruation.

2. Pain during sexual activity, also known as dyspareunia.

3. Discomfort or a feeling of fullness in the lower abdomen, especially in the case of large fibroids.

The Leaf that Stops Bleeding and Heals the Wound

Africa has herbs for virtually everything. This leaf has different names in different regions. In some part of Igbo land it is called nsịigube. It has different functions.

When my grandmother was alive before she died at the age of 130 years, she was using this leaf. She never used eyeglasses for a day. She often placed it on her eyes. When I asked her the function, she told me it helped her to see very well.

Apart from sight, my grandmother used this grass on her leg. She would place it on her two legs, then after sometimes, she would get up and walk. Until the day she died, she was using this leaf.

When you sustain injury and you are bleeding, this leaf will stop the bleeding immediately. How?

You will get some into your hand and squeeze it by crushing your both palms together until the leaf begings to bring out water, you will apply the water into the wound, immediately, the bleeding stops, and just after that day, the wound will get healed.

When I was a kid, my mother often applied it on my wounds; I often used this even now as an adult, if I have any cult be it knife, razor blade or other sharpen object, I stop the bleeding immediately and get healed by applying this nsịigube leaf.

80% Of Heart Attacks Could Be Avoided If Everyone Did These 5 Easy Things

Do you know the leading cause of death in the USA for both men and women? It’s heart attack and it’s responsible for over 1 million deaths every year. It’s usually a result of the most common heart disease, coronary artery disease.

According to statistics, this year alone we’ll have 920.000 new heart attack cases and as much as 50% of them will happen to unsuspecting Americans, without any warning signs.

Heart attack happens when the blood flow to your heart gets blocked and the heart isn’t receiving enough blood to properly do its function. The blood flow is usually blocked by arterial plaque buildup, which can suddenly rupture and form a blood clot which will limit the blood flow to your heart.

If such a situation does occur, you must react quickly or otherwise part of your heart muscle will start dying off and become scar tissue which can cause even more serious issues in the future.

5 Lifestyle Changes Could Prevent 80% of Heart Attacks

This life-threatening condition is very serious but what many people don’t know is that it can be completely prevented and avoided if people just made some crucial lifestyle changes. As we already know, our lifestyle is a big factor in our cardiovascular health.

READ  What is President Muhammadu Buhari Net worth?

Researchers at the Karolinska Institute conducted a study which showed that just five healthy lifestyle changes could reduce first-time heart attacks in men by 80%. Here’s what they said:

It is not surprising that healthy lifestyle choices would lead to a reduction in heart attacks… What is surprising is how drastically the risk dropped due to these factors.”

A similar study was conducted in 2004 by INTERHEART, which examined heart disease risk factors in over 50 countries worldwide and discovered that 90% cardiovascular disorders can be entirely prevented if certain diet and lifestyle changes are implemented.

What are these crucial lifestyle changes that play such an important role in cardiovascular health?

  • Healthy diet
  • Moderate physical activity (walking/bicycling minimum 40 min per day and exercising minimum 1 hour per week)
  • Healthy waist circumference (waist circumference under 95 cm or 37.4 inches)
  • Moderate alcohol consumption (maximum 10 to 30g. a day)
  • No smoking

What Is a Healthy Diet for Your Heart?

Contrary to popular belief, the worst foods for our heart aren’t saturated fats like butter, lard or eggs, it’s the refined sugars, carbs and processed foods that do the most damage.

People often get confused about this issue because it’s common belief that high LDL cholesterol levels, also known as “bad” cholesterol, lead to cardiovascular diseases and saturated fat can increase LDL in your blood. However, what is unknown to most people is that there are TWO kinds of LDL cholesterol particles:

  • Small, dense LDL cholesterol
  • Large, “fluffy” LDL cholesterol

Research has shown that those large, fluffy LDL particles aren’t to blame when it comes to heart disease. The small and dense LDL particles cause arterial plaque buildup which leads to heart attack. When it comes to food, trans-fats increase the levels of small, dense LDL particles, while saturated fats increase the level of the large, benign LDL particles. The amount of small LDL particles is increased with the intake of carbs and refined sugars, like bread, bagels, sodas and so on and that’s why trans-fat and carbs do a lot more damage to your cardiovascular health than saturated fats alone.

A True Heart-Healthy Diet Plan

If you want to preserve your cardiovascular health you need to avoid trans fats and processed foods entirely. This means that fast food and junk food is completely off the table. Then, you have to get your insulin and leptin resistance under control. The high intake of sugars and grains has probably disrupted the balance and caused an array of problems. If you want to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and prevent a heart attack you need to follow some basic rules:

  • Avoid sugars, processed fructose, and grains. Stay clear of most processed foods as well.
  • Implement a healthy balanced eating regimen consisted of whole, organic food. Replace the carbs with:
  • High amounts of vegetables
  • Low-to-moderate amount of high-quality protein (ideally organically raised, pastured animals)
  • High-quality healthy fat (saturated and monounsaturated from animal and tropical oil sources).

It’s been scientifically proven that the majority of people lack fat in their day-to-day diet and this need to be improved for optimal health. Everyone should increase the healthy fat intake by at least 50-85%. To do so you should consider eating more:

  • Avocados
  • Butter made from organic milk
  • Raw dairy
  • Organic egg yolks
  • Coconuts and coconut oil
  • Unheated organic nut oils
  • Raw nuts, such as almonds, pecans, macadamia, and seeds
  • Meat from grass-fed animals

If you want to have a healthy heart you need to restore the balance between omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids. The combination of these two ingredients participates in the formation of cells in the arteries, responsible for prostacyclin, an ingredient which enables smooth blood flow. The lack of omega 3 can cause a long list of health disorders and be the major risk factor in more than 96 000 premature deaths every year. Experts recommend that you limit your consumption of vegetable oils and eat more wild-caught oily fish like sardines and anchovies. You can consider taking a high-quality krill oil supplement.

Is Fruit Good for Your Heart?

A study presented at the ESC Congress in Barcelona this year revealed some amazing discoveries. The study showed that people who regularly consumed fruits had a 40% lower risk of any type of cardiovascular disease and a 32% lower risk of death from any cause in comparison with people who didn’t.

Fruits abound in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients which can improve your cardiovascular health and prevent inflammation. According to a study from the British Medical Journal eating just one apple a day can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and death from heart attack in people over 50 years, having similar effect as statin drugs.

Still, everything should be in moderation, and this goes for fruits as well. You should especially be careful with sweeter fruits; they contain high levels of fructose. The most beneficial ingredients are usually found in the skin or seeds and they have a bitter or sour taste. When buying fruit always opt for organic produce, they are the most nutritious and you’ll know for sure they haven’t been stripped of all the nutrients. Keep in mind that fruits contain lots of fructose and should be consumed in moderation. There are certain guidelines as to how much fruit you should eat on a daily basis according to your overall health condition. For example:

  • If you are leptin/insulin resistant, overweight, hypersensitive or have high cholesterol levels (this includes nearly 80% Americans), you shouldn’t eat more than 15g fructose daily.
  • If you are not insulin/leptin resistant, and have normal weight, don’t suffer from diabetes, hypertension, or high cholesterol and if you do some physical activity almost every day, you can eat as much fruit as you like.
  • If you belong to the second group, fruit can still increase your blood sugar, even your protein glycosylation. It’s best to eat fruits after workout and some physical activity, because your body will then use the sugar as fuel rather than store it in your blood and raise your blood sugar levels.
  • Plus, if you’re an endurance athlete, you can also consume large amounts of fruits because your body will burn most of the glucose during exercise, and it won’t be stored as fat.

Diabetes Drugs Increases Heart Disease Risk

People suffering from diabetes are most usually prescribed Metformin, a drug which makes your body more sensitive to insulin. However, recent studies have shown that prolonged use of this drug can decrease the levels of the thyroid-stimulating hormone TSH which can lead to serious medical problems and damage your cardiovascular health. Another study revealed that patients suffering from type 2 diabetes which were prescribed glucose-lowering drugs are at higher risk of death from heart related problems.

According to the researchers, “The overall results of this meta-analysis do not show a benefit of intensive glucose lowering treatment on all-cause mortality or cardiovascular death. A 19% increase in all-cause mortality and a 43% increase in cardiovascular mortality cannot be excluded.”

If you are suffering from type 2 diabetes you can look up some alternative treatments, these drugs aren’t your only option. You can implement certain lifestyle changes, such as eliminate processed foods and eat more organic food which doesn’t contain artificial sugars and sugar-forming carbs. If you start some high-intensity cardio workout in addition to the diet you will be on the right track to reversing this disease.

Warning about Beta-Blockers and Scientific Misconduct

Beta blockers are drugs aimed at treating high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. They block the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and epinephrine (adrenaline) from binding to beta receptors and dilate blood vessels, lowering your heart rate and blood pressure. It was a common practice in the past for patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery to take beta-blockers, and this practice was even recommended by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). However, it was recently discovered that this practice, which according to researchers was based on “questionable and probably fraudulent research,” may have been the cause of 800,000 deaths in the past five years in Europe only.

The main reason for the adoption of this practice was a research conducted by a scientist who was fired for scientific misconduct in 2011 and was also the chairman in the committee which drafted these guidelines. The question remains why hasn’t this information brought to light immediately? Why wasn’t anything done? And why did the ESC needed 2 years to withdraw the beta-blocker recommendation? Who knows how many deaths could have been prevented if the revelation had been brought to light immediately.

Even the doctors who knew about this had their hands tied because the guidelines must be respected and there was nothing they could do about it. Forbes reported:

They write about a culture of neglect in which few if any participants have anything to gain by finding or reporting scientific misconduct. They cite numerous examples in which misconduct has been alleged but the responsible actors– authors, home institutions, journals, and medical societies– have responded in only the most minimal and nonaggressive fashion. The portrait they paint is of a scientific and medical establishment devoted to not rocking the boat.”

Avoid Becoming another Heart Attack Statistic

There are a million things you can do if you want to improve your overall health and lower the risk of heart attack and cardiovascular disease. The one thing you shouldn’t do is wait for things to take the turn to the worse before doing something about it. If you don’t take immediate action the consequences could be deadly.

Here’s what you can do if you want to prevent heart attack and promote your health:

– Eliminate all sugars, including processed fructose and grains if you are insulin or leptin resistant.

– Eat unprocessed saturated animal fats, they are highly beneficial for you

– Don’t take statins, they have numerous dangerous side effects, while limited benefits. Truth to be told, only the people suffering from genetic familial hypercholesterolemia can benefit from these drugs. This group of people is resistant to lifestyle strategies like diet and exercise.

– Don’t sit for prolonged periods of time. If you can, try to limit the sitting time to three hours a day or less and be more physically active.

– Exercise regularly, in a combination with a healthy balanced diet, preferably organic. This may even yield better results than cholesterol lowering drugs. For best results, combine high-intensity interval training, strength training, stretching, and core work.

– Provide your body with the much needed vitamin D, spend more time under the sun, a tanning bed, or if that isn’t enough take vitamin D3 supplements.

– Reduce your stress daily. You can try the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for stress management. Stress is a contributing factor in a number of diseases, not just cardiovascular ones, so reducing stress can have a positive effect on your overall health.

Why Men Should Eat More of This

Scientists found that the sweat of men who had eaten the bulb smelt more attractive to women.

The researchers suggested that women may have evolved to prefer the type of smell that eating garlic – which is a highly nutritious food – produces in armpit sweat, because it suggests the person is healthy.

Garlic has antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal properties and studies have suggested it can help reduce the incidence of colds, and even high blood pressure and some cancers.

The body odour of the men was perceived to be ‘significantly more attractive and less intense’ when they had eaten the garlic in bulb and capsule form than when they (the same men) hadn’t eaten it.

The antibacterial action of the garlic makes the armpits smell sweeter by reducing the density of the microbes which cause the nasty odours, the researchers from the University of Stirling in Scotland and Charles University in the Czech Republic said.

So, while you will be needing a mint to mask the smell on your breath, your armpits will be giving off all the right smell.

‘Certainly, breath odour plays a crucial role in most social interactions, but human axillary (armpit) odour is also an important factor in intimate relationships,’ the researchers wrote in the journal Appetite.

‘Our results indicate that garlic consumption may have positive effects on perceived body odour hedonicity (the pleasure derived from it), perhaps due to its health effects, for example antioxidant properties and antimicrobial activity.

As the health benefits of garlic consumption include antioxidant, immune-stimulant, cardiovascular, bactericidal, and anti-carcinogenic (anti-cancer) effects, it is plausible that human odour preferences have been similarly shaped by sexual selection.

‘Obviously, garlic negatively influences the individuals’ breath on account of sulphur-containing gases which does not seem to apply to the body odour.

The compounds contributing to garlic odour might not reach the skin glands in perceptible quantities, because the sulphurous constituents are highly volatile and many leave the body through the mouth.’ For the study, 42 men were asked, in rotation, to eat raw garlic, garlic capsules, or no garlic, and wear pads in their armpits for 12 hours afterwards, to collect body odour.
