Rushing to go urinate middle of the night. Follow this rule first. It may save your life.

This advice I am about to share comes from a doctor. It can save your life, my life or the loves of other people just by sharing this article. It can affect any of us at any given time. So please take note and please save lives by sharing it. 


This article is for you especially if you are one of the many who wake up during the night or early morning for the need to urinate. It is safest to remember the half minute rule x3. You will see what I mean in a moment.   

Imagine for a moment you wake up suddenly and realize you need to rush to the bathroom. In all aspects you can be considered healthy and you take care of your health. But in these few moments of rushing to go to the bathroom to urinate you endanger your health. Worse you may not even realize how dangerous it can be. Even much more serious your life is at risk. Yes that is how serious this can be.   

If you wake up suddenly to go to the bathroom and you just stand up. It is very bad for you. Because the brain does not have enough blood at the specific moment. It can cause heart failure because there is a lack of blood. Or the brain may become anaemic. Causing heart failure and the end result is death.

So what should you do that is safest for you? 


  • Lie in bed for half a minute
  • Next sit in bed for another half minute
  • And last start to lower your legs. Sit on the edge of your bed for the other half minute.
  • Each one counts as thirty seconds to help your body to help with blood flow.


By doing this you will reduce the chance of falling while at the same time your heart wont fail or have anaemic brain will not occur . Thus avoiding suddenly dying. 

I hope this advice given helps to save lives. It is in all not even two minutes but life is precious. As seen it is 3 things, each lasting 30 seconds and it can save a life. So please share so it can save the lives of people. You may never know you saved someone's life. That person may not even know it by following the rules given. Life is precious. Treat it is such.

Waxing the good the bad and the home made recipes

Today I want to talk about something that many feel they will never consider. It is frowned upon by many. Yet those who do this as part of their beauty routine will praise the effectiveness of it. Painful? Yes. Effective mostly.  Facial hair, arms legs back and hair on many other parts can be removed by using this method But many will feel they will stick to their preferred ways of dealing with unwanted hair..  It is an opinion from the one person the next. But it is best only in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing. I am talking about waxing. Many are not sensitive to waxing. But for those who are sensitive to waxing. It is best to use other ways to get rid of unwanted hair


Waxing is an effective way to deal with unwanted hair growth. For 6 to 8 weeks there is no issue about hair growth. Hair growth will be thinner. So many consider it as an ideal way to deal with unwanted hair growth. First the home made waxing recipes. There is a variety of ways available. It is about personal preference. 

Please read the full article before you want to do it you do not have experience about waxing.

Sugar wax

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 or 2 drops tea tree essential oil (optional)  


Place everything together in a saucepan. Put the pan with the mixture on the stove. Medium high heat is best temperature for melting the ingredients. Keep stirring the mixture. Please know that sugar can burn fast. The intention is to melt the sugar. You are looking for a consistency that is syrup in appearance. It should be golden brown in appearance. Remove the mixture from the stove. Pour into container that can handle high heat. Leave the mixture to cool for two hours before you want to use it. 

Honey wax

  • 1 cup white sugar, granulated
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Juice of half a lemon 


Put all the ingredients in saucepan. Stir everything. Again remember that sugar burns easily so stir frequently.  Keep doing that till everything has melted. There should not be any sign of sugar granules. Remove the mixture from the stove and leave it to cool to room temperature. 

Waxing method

Use cotton fabric cut into strips after applying a thin layer of wax over freshly washed skin. Rub with your fingers to make sure everything spreads evenly. Always apply wax in the direction of hair growth. Never the opposite. Leave it to harden on skin. Now take the side of the strip and quickly remove the strip from your skin. Pull the opposite direction of hair growth.  

Word of caution

In the hands of a novice it is very very dangerous. So get information about safely waxing or ask a friend that knows enough already to help. Make it a girls hangout. If the wax mixture drips easily. Do not attempt to use it. The only thing you will experience is painful burns on your skin. And it can be very serious. Depending on how hot the mixture is. So if you are a first time user. Please first and most. Be careful. Do not burn yourself. Not only is it painful. It is also very dangerous if the burns are severe. Find a friend that has experience. Or find information to avoid burning yourself.

How to deal with waxing burns.

If it is minor burns. This will be effective. By minor burns I mean some redness and swelling that may occur. For more severe burns find medical help.
First apply an ice pack. Do not directly apply ice cubes onto skin. Wrap ice cubes in cloth or towel. Something that will avoid freezer burns. And leave it on for a few minutes. Apply Vaseline over the area as it protects skin from becoming infected. This is only effective it is some minor burns. If you find that you have severe burns you should seek medical attention. Do remember that skin that has burns are prone to infections. You will deal with redness and swelling for a few days but your skin will heal. 

With that said I hope that this article not only helps those who are considering waxing but it also saves those who do know how dangerous waxing can be if you do not know what you are doing. Please use this methods safely. Or keep using your preferred methods of dealing with unwanted hair.

Homemade all-in-one face mask for younger clear radiant skin for all skin types

I was on the verge of a skin break out which doesn't happen much to me despite having oily skin. So I knew I had to do something drastic. Result is a great facial mask that I just knew I had to share. I will however confess I got carried away when combining ingredients. But at the same time I knew what would be good for skin and wanted to make sure I handle a few things at the same time. Despite having oily skin I knew I had to give my skin some much needed pampering as well. Having oily skin doesn't mean you don't need moisturise. It just means your moisturiser should not be for other skin types and not have any unneeded oils. As your skin will be aggravated and it will be visible.


If you suffer from dull tired looking skin, need to focus on wrinkles, dark circles or even dark marks, irritated tired looking skin then you can try this. As this a home made face mask you will be amazed at the results. I have to admit I just combined things that I knew will be good for my skin. Each of these ingredients does something beneficial for skin. So it wasn't just a random pick. If you have made facial masks before you will know how beneficial each of these ingredients are.

What items did I use, you may wonder.
Oats
Lemon juice or juice of one lemon
Extra virgin olive oil, 
Banana, 
Cucumber
Tomato
Mint leaves that was freshly picked I used about 6. 
Now don't forget to add yogurt. 
If I had raw honey I would've added it. As it is good for many skin conditions.
While you are relaxing why not place two cucumber slices over your eyes as well

The cucumber came straight from the fridge so it was a cold face mask. Combine the ingredients and liquidise it in a liquidiser and make sure to make a fine smooth paste with it. Or a food processor if you don't have a liquidiser. Apply on your face and neck. I always apply the mask on my hands too. We use our hands so much but it shows age just as easily. Yet most forget that hands need pampering as well.  When applying you will feel it starts working on your skin within minutes. Personally I leave it on to dry completely as it has a skin tightening effect as well. I can say about 20 minutes then rinse off with lukewarm water (never use hot water on your face). Apply your favourite moisturiser or why not consider ending your facial treatment with a well nourishing oil such as castor olive or coconut oil for extra benefits. Leave it on overnight

As seen it was a wild made facial mask. But with these results. I keep doing this every day. I don't know if it is about the combined effect or if it is the fact that after I put on castor oil but it is stunning. But you can apply olive oil or coconut oil after face mask and leave it on overnight. It has so many nutritional benefits. 

I always make facial masks, not only for me but for my mother as well. She deserves the pampering too.  Some time other ladies use this facial mask as well. This is the changes I have noticed as following between all of us. Smooth clear skin that is well hydrated and slowly removes wrinkles. Skin looks radiant, fresh, nourished and well hydrated. Dark circles are lightened, it may even be gone. And that skin break out. That disappeared before it became a problem. Dark marks are lightened. Freckles are lightened as well, firmer younger looking skin that shows you gave your skin some much needed time. I am surprised at all the results I have seen. I call this the all-in-one face mask. I may improve it over time. But I am truly satisfied with it. I do hope you will approve it as well.

What I did that worked for varicose veins

After receiving tremendous response on the article to remove varicose veins permanently I decided to share what I did. That worked! As well as explain a few things. Now many may feel no or may think why do it.  But for me. Time is something I do not have much off. I am sure many can agree with that also. Between my busy schedule and family. I can not see myself sitting for half an hour sitting and holding cotton wool. So after long consideration. I decided what I can do that will be effective for me. And yes it does work. Bare with me I will explain what I did.

I was about 20 when I first discovered that I like many others suffer from varicose veins. I thought I will have to live with it. And for a while I tried to make peace with that. So understand that you are talking to someone that knows exactly how it feels and how embarrassing it is. Not to mention it can be extremely painful as well. I covered my legs like most will that suffer from it. Going for surgery isnt something I would consider. Till one day I discovered there is natural solutions to help with it.


So to really make sure it can not happen again. It means that we have to think about our life styles and habits. Long standing or even being overweight can be a sure cause of varicose veins. Poor blood circulation is the culprit that causes varicose veins. As well as leaky valves. Blood circulation is so important and especially more when you suffer from this condition.  Why we get varicose veins will explain about a few things that has to do with varicose veins and what to do.

What you will need and what to do
Paper towel
Bandage
Apple cider vinegar with mother of earth enzyme (Bragg is one example)

With all that bare in mind that exercise is important as it improves blood circulation. 

I took paper towel and poured some apple cider vinegar on it. That soaked paper towel I placed on the specific area that had the varicose veins. I wrapped it with bandage. Put on pants to make sure it stays covered well and that it can not move. I went to sleep and the next morning I washed the affected area. Only to repeat it the next night. First thing I noticed is that on busy days my legs would feel painful. That changed the first day as I too tend to be busy and on my legs most of the day. It took time but I could see the varicose veins slowly go away.

Now many may say no and it doesnt work or other comments. It worked for me. And because of that I am sharing it with all who do suffer from it.

You can also check out the article on alternative home remedies and foods to consider. It may give a few ideas or ideas that will help with the condition.

I hope this may give you a few ideas or that it works for you. Please share so others can benefit from it. Feel free to comment below or email us. If you have any suggestions feel to respond.

Alternative home remedies that works for varicose (spider) veins. And foods that helps

After receiving tremendous response on the article to remove varicose veins permanently  I have decided to give a few other home remedies and foods that may help with the treatment for those who suffer from varicose veins. So with that in mind allow me to explain a few things. 

First thing to realize is that what you do matters. The way you sit really does matter. What you wear matters. When standing  for long periods of time. It does affect your legs and it can cause varicose veins. What you must remember about varicose veins is the real problem is veins does have valves. One way valves. It is supposed to make sure that blood flow goes one way only. But when the valves becomes weak. It causes leaky valves.That is when this condition occurs. As blood gets accumulated in veins instead of moving along to go through to the heart. it causes the appearance of varicose veins or spider veins


Some reasons for varicose (Spider) Veins can be 
Obesity
Pregnancy
Being inactive
When hormones is not balanced
Standing for long periods of time

Eating some type of foods may help treat varicose veins
Foods that has high fibre content as it helps to avoid or cure constipation which takes away pressure from the veins.
Cayenne pepper as it helps with blood circulation
Vitamin E rich foods as it aids circulation as well as contains a herb that has high capsaicin. So consider leafy green vegetables almonds and sunflower seeds as it has high Vitamin E content
Berries such as blueberries raspberries that is full of flavonoids. It helps to strengthen veins. Green tea is also full of flavonoids.
Seeds such as flax seeds and chia seeds that is rich in omega 3 fats. Relieving stress on veins.

Foods that cause spider (varicose veins)
Sugar as it leads to weight gain and it can cause inflammation.
Caffeine as it causes dehydration so it is not good for your veins. 
Alcohol should be avoided for that same reason as caffeine
Processed foods as it makes varicose veins worse by increasing toxins in the body. Sadly these foods doesn't have much nutritional value for your body.   

Again I repeat a few top remedies that works for varicose veins, as well as spider veins.

Horse chestnut. Take 100 mg a day
Reduces swelling and strengthen veins
Butcher's broom. Take 200 mg a day.
It helps to reduce inflammation in the veins
Grape seed extract. Take 200 mg a day
It helps to strengthen vein walls

Keeping warm on those cold cold days

Winter time can be pleasant for many. But at the same time we realize we miss the warmer days. Especially when night falls and the cold sets in. So with that in mind I am sharing a few tips to stay warm. But also safely warm.


Fireplace
If you are fortunate enough to have a fireplace dont be afraid to use it. Off course safety is important. So if you can not use it with safety then rather avoid that. Although I have to say I think that is one very cozy way to have the family together around a fireplace. Thinking of all those family movies that shows a very delightful time. Yes time spent well indeed.

Using a heater
If you feel it is a good to use a heater. Remember the three feet rule. Stay a distance away from it. And make sure that it isnt a hazard to your family or health either.

Electric blanket
I dont think there is anything quite as nice as getting into a warm bed on a cold evening. It is cost effective as most tend to save power in some way. But at the same time it can keep the chills away too. But do to take note of all the safety measures and precautions.

Dont forget to layer up
To wear an extra shirt or leggings is a good way to protect yourself from the cold weather. Consider gloves or mittens. If it is very cold use a hat also. Dont be too shy to think of winter socks. Nothing quite as painful as cold painful feet and toes.

Warmer foods
It is good to consider hot coffee or tea. Or hot chocolate drinks. As well as soup or spicy food to help keep you warm during those cold winter nights.

Alcohol is a no no
Yes I know some will say but,,, It feels warm. Sorry people the fact is that alcohol actually decreases your body's core temperature. A study done by Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine showed that your body loses the ability to shiver when drinking alcohol. Yes alcohol can make you sweat even when it is very cold. That obviously cools your core temperature too. So next time leave the alcohol and go for the hot drinks that will help you stay warm.

Layer your covers and blankets
Start with your cozy fuzzy and warm blankets first. And putting your thin dense blankets last to help  make sure that heat wont escape. Keeping your bed warm and cozy.

Bake and cook to your heart's content
Using the oven helps spread heat through out the house. Making it pleasant and warm.

Remember a warm bottle
Always a good idea to use a bottle to help keep cold weather away. If you don't have one. Take a two litre bottle that is rounded and nice. Like a Coke bottle. And fill it with hot tap water. Now use that. You will be surprised as it keeps you warm but at the same time it lasts for hours. I still do this every winter. Or even on cold days.

Staying dry
It is very important to stay dry if it is cold and rainy weather. So dont forget to use a raincoat or an umbrella. 


And one of my favorites.
If it is very cold outside and its just slowly crawling up your spine. Consider a nice warm bath. Nothing beats the chills quite like that. I dont think of showers when it is cold. I think of soothing warm baths. Where all that ice cold coolness is slowly drained and all that is left is a pleasant warm feeling from the bath

These are just a few simple ways to stay warm on cold days. But it is effective against freezing cold weather. Life is a learning process after all. Thanks for reading this article. I hope you found it helpful. I sure did. As it is winter and very cold here.

This doesnt helps you lose body fat. Although some will say that Vicks can help with fat burning. Don't hesitate to consider this effective home remedy. It is a full DIY project.

You can use either body lotion or Vicks Vaporub. The camphor in Vicks Vaporub can be used to helps stimulate fat burning. But many will tell you this is not a permanent solution for weight loss.

Yes rehydrating is very important for your body as it needs water to function properly.

It is still a way to lose weight. But most important. Never forget that a sensible diet and exercise is vital and most effective for weight loss.
