In an effort to help woman of all ages learn to take care of and nurture themselves, here are 6 easy ideas you can use to bring balance and harmony into your life.

Eat Right

Managing Diabetes Naturally

When we eat, our bodies break down the proteins, carbohydrates and fats we consume to be used as the building blocks of our bodies. Carbohydrates, such as those found in bread, pasta, rice, potatoes and cereals are first digested and converted into simple sugars in the intestines and then move from the intestines into the bloodstream. These simple sugars are our body's first choice for energy production.

Fear - The Thief Of Dreams

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear."
H.P. Lovecraft

Fear is defined as an emotional response to an unknown or impending danger or as an expectation of evil. Fear can create feelings of apprehension, anxiety, alarm, dread, fright or terror. When you are in fear, you are scared of someone, something or a potential outcome.

Understanding & Reducing The Risk Of A Heart Attack Naturally

The heart beats about once a second and pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood throughout the network of veins, arteries and capillaries that constantly provide the body with the oxygen and nutrients we need to sustain life. Like the rest of our body, our heart muscle requires a constant supply of oxygen-rich blood to nourish it. When we have a heart attack (a myocardial infarction) the flow of blood into the heart, via the coronary arteries, becomes blocked, inhibiting the flow of blood.

What's That Ringing In My Ears? It May Be Tinnitus

Often referred to as "ringing in the ears" tinnitus is often not a serious health problem, but more of a nuisance. With this disorder, sufferers hear sounds in one or both ears, yet only they can hear it, i.e. there is no external sound present. The sounds experienced can be short lived or constant, soft in tone or loud enough to drown out other external noises. The sounds experienced are characterized with terms such as hissing, whistling, clicking, chirping, pulsing, buzzing or a high pitched ringing sound.

Natural Remedies for Iron Poor Blood

Anemia or iron poor blood is a condition where there aren't enough red blood cells in the body to carry sufficient amounts of oxygen to the tissues. Each of our red blood cells contains hemoglobin, an iron rich protein that gives it its red color. Hemoglobin is responsible for the transportation of oxygen from the lungs to other parts of the body.

Natural Remedies For Dealing With Diarrhea

When we eat, food is mixed with large amounts of water and fluid in the stomach. It then travels through the small intestines where nutrients are absorbed. The digested food then moves into the colon where water is extracted and what remains is a semi-solid stool. If the colon doesn't absorb sufficient fluids or if the digestive system produces too much, our stool will be loose, resulting in a watery bowel movement - diarrhea.

Controlling Intestinal Gas Naturally

Intestinal gas, flatulence, farting or breaking wind is a natural part of the digestive process. This odorless gas, although at times embarrassing, is the result of good digestion. Every day our body produces one to three pints of gas that is ultimately passed. Intestinal gas is made up of oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide and methane. If we notice an unpleasant smell, it is because the gas contains other compounds, including hydrogen sulfide and ammonia.

How Bad Is Your Breath? 14 Simple Tips For Reducing Mouth Odor

Bad breath, morning breath, breath odor or halitosis are all terms used to describe a noticeably unpleasant odor exhaled on the breath. Halitosis is not a problem by itself, but it can cause concerns in our interpersonal relationships.

We are all familiar with how the consumption of certain foods such as garlic and onions can affect our breath. This occurs because these foods are absorbed into our bloodstream, where they are transferred to our lungs and exhaled. Fortunately, bad breath caused by the foods we eat is only temporary.

Understanding Breast Cancer

Our body is made up thousands of cells that differ in size, shape and function. Controlled by our DNA, each cell is programmed to perform certain tasks and after a specified period of time - die. This is normally done in an orderly manner. However, if our cells are exposed to carcinogens, viruses or ionizing radiation, for example, the DNA can become damaged creating havoc with this once orderly process. Said another way, if the rate of new cell growth in the body overcomes the rate of cell death, tumors can develop.
