Now I’m going to show you a couple of techniques for how to relieve headaches in people.

Headaches can occur in a couple of different places, so we’re going to show you all of those. One of the first places that they can happen is right here at the base of the skull. I’m going to go ahead and cup her head in my hands and find this ridge at the base of her skull called the occiput. Your fingers will pretty much sink in there and, you can just get a nice pull back. Of course you’re going to want to check in with your client and make sure that they feel comfortable.

This is a nice way to relieve that area. You can also move forward just a little bit. You’ll find that there’s a couple of little bumps there in front of that ridge. You can do some circular motions on those, or apply deep pressure to that area, and that feels really great as well. So, this is for people who get headaches that are rooted from the back of the head.

Sometimes they’ll wrap around to the side and/or they’ll be in the front here in the temples. This is pretty common. A lot of people go and try to rub in this area here which, it feels OK, but it’s not typically where the headache is located. It’s located a little bit higher, and if you just follow your fingers along here they’re going to fall into a little dip. Right above that is a ridge, and that’s typically where the spot is. You’re just going to go nice and deeply, slow movements, keep your fingers with contact on the scalp the whole time. You don’t want to bounce over that area especially if there’s a headache and it’s tender. That will typically help quite a bit.

Another thing that’s really common is headaches behind the eyes. So, if it’s a sinus headache you’re going to be applying pressure here. You’ll want to apply pressure and then let go.

But more commonly, and especially I find in women, their headache’s behind the eyes. So this is something that is a pretty tender area. You’re going to go in just deep enough that you can sort of feel the edge of the eyeball on your finger. They’ll be able to guide you in there so you don’t go too far. When there’s a headache there you’re actually going to feel the inflammation. There’s going to be a little knot there that kind of feels like a small pebble. It feels like she’s actually got one right there in the right side. So, she probably gets headaches on her right side sometimes.

You can also just do pressure there and release, pressure there and release. You do the same thing. You go up to the very top of the arch, kind of hook your finger under just a little bit, apply pressure, and let go. Then all the way on the exterior of the eye like at the end of the eyebrow, apply pressure and let go. Then you’re going to do one final one right there in the center of the forehead, and one nice swoop right around the eyebrows, and a little pull.

And that is how you work on headaches.




Unfortunately, numerous people nowadays face sleeping difficulties, and the irregular sleeping patterns affect the entire living and overall health.

If you suffer from sleeping issues as well, if you fail to get at least 7 hours of sound sleep at night, and toss and turn the entire night, you should know that you are one of many, but these problems cause various other as well.

The most common causes of sleep deprivation include stress, depression, stress, and anxiety. The more you think about the reasons for your stress, the less sleep you will get at night.

Moreover, the sleeplessness can also be a result of the use of blood pressure drugs, pain-killers, and antihistamines, and they may lead to drowsiness, anxiety, disturbed sleep, and frequent bathroom trips.

On the other hand, sleeping pills are far from a good solution to your problems, as they do not provide permanent effects. On the other hand, they may even worsen the situation, and lead topoor sleep and insomnia.

These pills belong to the group of sedative hypnotics, together with barbiturates and benzodiazepines, and are created to maintain sleep. Yet, Valium and Xanax, which are benzodiazepine types, are used to cure anxiety, and increase drowsiness.

Furthermore, barbiturates are used as sedatives and anesthetics and depress the central nervous system. Yet, their major flaw is the fact that they cause addiction and highly habit-forming.

Moreover, they can cause various adverse effects, like dizziness, weakness, stomach pain, parasomnias, constipation, difficulty focusing and remembering, uncontrollable shaking.

Also, they decelerate the breathing rhythm, and may be dangerous and even fatal in the case of lung diseases, like asthma, or COPD.

Yet, the body suffers a lot if the person gets less than 8 hours of sleep, as this deprivation causes long-term and short-term memory issues. The lack of sleep raises the risk of numerous health problems and diseases, like cancer, diabetes, obesity, and it impedes the cognitive performance.

However, regardless of the cause for your sleeping issues, you should definitely do something to treat the irregular sleep pattern. We will reveal an extremely effective natural cure that will provide results quickly-banana tea!

This tea is prepared easily and has a delicious taste. It consists of natural, easily accessible ingredients, that you may already have at home. This tea will do miracles for your sleep!

Bananas, together with their peels, are high in magnesium and potassium, which are especially enhanced when combined with potassium. Magnesium is extremely beneficial in the case of sleep disturbances and provides relaxation.

Since you will also need the peel as well, make sure you use 100% organic bananas, which are free of chemicals and pesticides.

This tea is simple to prepare, you need only 10 minutes, and you should consume it before going to sleep.


1 organic banana
A small pot of water
A dash of cinnamon
Method of preparation:

You should first cut off the ends of the banana, peel it, and place it in a pot with boiling water, together with the peel. Leave it to boil for 10 minutes, and then strain the tea through a colander, and pour it into a mug. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon and drink it before going to sleep.

You should not throw the fruit away, of course, as you can use it to prepare another delicious dessert. Just sprinkle some more cinnamon over it, and enjoy its health benefits.

The banana tea is an extremely pleasant way to treat your sleeping issues, it is completely natural, safe, and helpful.




Erika Schwartz a medical director requested to speak to the cardiologist of an elderly patient who had come to her, after she had gone through his obsolete medication and observed his symptoms she was convinced that his medications had to be completely changed.

The elderly man was suffering from low thyroid and testosterone levels, he was also sluggish and overweight. He had also a severe eczema and this led to him unable to sleep as he would be itching all night.

Dr. Schwartz eventually contacted the cardiologist after about three weeks of calls. She advised the cardiologist that the patient be taken off some of his meds as it was responsible for his severe eczema.
According to Dr. Schwartz the cardiologist was rude and even suggested that she had no knowledge of science. This surprised her and when she reminded him that they both had the same degree he hung up.

Dr. Schwartz discussed with this elderly nan and he decided to discontinue his treatment with the cardiologist.

She then placed him on a treatment that involved boosting his thyroid hormones and stopping him from taking cholesterol medication. This frightened the man as he thought he would have a heart attack but he did not as Dr. Schwartz corrected his cholesterol levels naturally.

The thyroid gland produces two thyroid hormones —triiodothyronine and thyroxine which are also referred to as T3 and T4.

Hypothyroidism is a problem with your thyroid gland and it can be caused by both external and internal factors and can lead to Hashimoto’s disease which is an autoimmune condition whereby your immune system becomes detrimental to your thyroid and attacks it.

If you have hypothyroidism then you are likely to show symptoms such as, weight gain, brittle nails, dry skin, fatigue, hair loss, mood swings and depression.

These symptoms are usually confused with other conditions and doctors tend to hand out meds without considering the possibility that hypothyroidism could be responsible.

Mary Shomon stated that a lot of people have high cholesterol and are having depression due to thyroid issues but yet doctors are handing them cholesterol meds and antidepressants.

Shomon also suggested that for those doctors that have identified thyroid as the root cause of the problem is not doing it right.

The test is known as thyroid stimulating hormone test or TSH test according to her is flawed.

The test measures the quantity of pituitary hormone—TSH—in your blood. The pituitary hormone informs your thyroid gland and makes it to release thyroid hormones. The TSH test cannot measure in actually fact the amount of T3 or T4 which is in your blood.

The problem is that patients exhibiting the symptoms stated will come down with a normal TSH result. Where a patient is on meds to fight the symptoms the side effects may be worse than the root illness.

Dr. Schwartz said that people suffer because the symptoms are been treated and not the root cause.

A better test will help, checking the amount of T4 and T3 in your blood independently is important. It is also very vital that the T4 is converted into T3 also that the T3 can penetrate the cells so it can do its job of regulating your organs.

Dr. Schwartz applies a more rounded approach to treating her patients who are of all ages. She looks at everything from diet to hormones to stress and so on.

She said that what she realised is that when she gives people thyroid they tend to feel much better. So once they feel better then it’s always easy for them to change their diet and engage in exercise regimes recommended by her.

Shomon also agrees with Dr. Schwartz’s assessment and stated that the health of our thyroid affects all other parts of our body.

As stated earlier external and internal factors could lead to thyroid disorders and wrong diagnosis can be made by doctors who do not understand the connection between diet, exercise, the immune system and every other factor that can influence the thyroid gland.

Dr. Emerson suggested that because we are living in a toxic world we are even more susceptible to having thyroid disorders; he stated that the mold and mycotoxins produced by some fungi is at the top of his list of dangerous toxins. He has researched into the dangers of these mycotoxins and mold to the thyroid gland and says that eating food with high mycotoxins or even foods high in sugar which gives mold the chance to grow in our bodies can be very deadly. He says that he had never seen a patient with Graves’ disease which is an over-active thyroid disorder without high levels of mold or mycotoxin infestation.

You need to take control of your own health and normalise your thyroid and other hormone levels. Eat a balanced diet, engage in regular exercise and try to live a stress free lifestyle.

Dr. Emerson believes that if you get the basics right will be rewarded with good health.

He designed some questions with which you can ask yourself and do a simple self-appraisal.

– Am I eating the right food?

– Am I drinking the right water?

– Am I getting enough sun?

– Am I getting enough sleep?

– Am I getting enough exercise?

– Am I getting medicines in my food?

Dr. Schwartz also created her own series of questions for self-appraisal and they include.

– If you cannot sleep at night, then why can you not sleep at night?

– Is it possible that you drank too much and it woke you up in the middle of the night?

– Do you eat late?

– Do you eat unhealthy foods often?

– Do you exercise late?

– Do you sleep with your TV on?”

If you ask yourself these questions and answer honestly then you would have taken the first step towards solving your thyroid disorder concerns.




Roughly one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lives, and health professionals expect over 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer in 2016.

While breast cancer rates have declined significantly in the last two decades, breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women (next to skin cancer) and kills more women than all cancers, excepting lung cancer, according

Early intervention is essential to increasing chances or survival. WebMDrecommends that you check for these possible warning signs the next time you do your regular breast exam:

1. Lump in the breast or under the arm
According to, you should pay special attention to lumps that do not hurt, feel hard and have uneven edges. However, any unusual lumps and tenderness in the underarm or breast area should be examined by a doctor.
2. Unusual swelling under the arm
During your monthly exam, take time to feel carefully under your arm for any areas that feel unusually swollen.
3. Dimpled skin
Look for dimpling of the skin over the breast, or general skin irritation.
4. Changes in the skin around the nipple
Look for changing colors, shapes or textures in the skin around your nipple, as this could indicate the presence of cancerous cells. Changes in skin pigmentation are also common in skin cancers.
5. Unusual swelling of one breast
It’s normal to have breasts that aren’t exactly even Steven, but any unusual swelling should be examined.
6. Gland enlargement
Enlarged glands in the breast or around the underarms could indicate cancer or another type of infection and should be examined by your doctor.
According to Mayo Clinic, three other symptoms to look for include:
7. Blood or other unusual discharge from nipple
8. A newly inverted nipple

9. Redness or pitting of the skin near the breast (similar to that of skin of orange)

The symptoms listed above may also indicate a cyst or other less-serious conditions; however, it is important to discuss any unusual symptoms with your doctor. Regularly examining your breasts is a simple way to catch changes in your body as soon as they happen. You are also more likely to notice the changes if you are already familiar with what your body should feel like.




Do you suffer from dry, itchy feet? Is the skin on your feet red, rough, or flaky?

Do you see cracks in your heels?

These are all common symptoms of dry feet. Unfortunately, most people suffer from this problem to some degree or another. The reason for this is because, unlike every other part of the body, skin on the feet has no oil glands. Instead, sweat glands are the only source of moisture.

Sometimes these sweat glands are not enough to keep feet properly moisturized. Foot Vitals explains common causes of dry feet are non-moisturizing soaps, cold weather, low humidity, sun exposure, hot showers, and aging. Dry feet can be uncomfortable and lead to excessive itching or burning. So don’t let the problem go untreated. Try these home remedies today.

1. Lemon juice. The acid in lemons helps dissolve dead skin. This is whyFoot Vitals recommends soaking feet in lemon juice for ten minutes and then using a loofah to scrub your feet and remove the dry skin.

2. Olive oil. The moisturizing properties of olive oil can be a lifesaver for dry, cracked feet. Add a few drops of lavender essential oil or lemon to boost the healing effects, says Foot Vitals. Combine your chosen ingredients in a jar and then shake until a milky solution forms. Apply the homemade cream to your cracked heels.

3. Vaseline. Moisturizing is a common use of Vaseline and other petroleum jelly products. Livestrong recommends massaging Vaseline all over your feet, including the tops and between your toes. For the best effects, apply at night and sleep with cotton socks. This will better allow the Vaseline to soak into your feet. Be sure to rinse your feet in the morning.

4. Sugar. Livestrong recommends mixing a homemade exfoliating scrub made from equal parts olive oil and brown sugar. Give yourself a foot massage with the sugar scrub. Be sure to focus on the roughest part of your feet. After 10- 15 minutes, rinse your feet under cold water.

5. Honey. The natural enzymes in honey can heal your feet and help seal in moisture. This is why Livestrong recommends soaking your feet in warm water mixed with honey. After 10- 15 minutes, your feet should feel softer.

6. Milk. Rapid Home Remedies explains milk is rich in vitamin A and other nutrients that contribute to healthy, glowing skin. It also contains lactic acid, which can shed dead skin cells and promote the growth of new, healthy cells. Make a milk-based foot bath by combining 1 cup milk and 5- 7 cups warm water.

7. Sesame oil. This powerful oil contains vitamin E and three different kinds of acid. It also has anti-bacterial properties. Rapid Home Remediesrecommends soaking your feet in warm water for 10 minutes and then rubbing your feet with sesame oil. It is best to apply the sesame oil nightly before bed.

8. Turmeric. This home remedy might turn your feet bright yellow, butRapid Home Remedies promises the miraculous effects are worth the temporary color change! The home remedy is especially powerful for people whose dry feet are caused by infections like athlete’s foot. Mix 3 tablespoons turmeric powder in a few drops of coconut oil and apply the solution to cracked feet. Rest for 20- 30 minutes and then wash your feet with warm water and a mild soap.


Give your feet a rest! With these home remedies, your feet will be soft and healthy.

5 Crazy Signs You’re Way Too Stressed (And You Don’t Even Know It)



1. You’re Snapping At Everyone (For No Good Reason)

When your co-worker poses a simple question—“Hey, can you proofread this memo for me?”—and you act like she asked you to read the employee handbook to her. You huff and puff and silently wonder why she’s so very stupid. Instead of calmly responding with a “Sure” or “Give me a few seconds to wrap this up,” you answer with venom-laced words: “Um, I’m kinda busy right now, but sure, whatever.”

Later on, you realize you severely overreacted, and the embarrassment sets in. Christine Porath, a professor at Georgetown University’s business school, explains that a lot of people have no idea they’re being rude to others. And it’s probably “because they’re so stressed and overwhelmed that they don’t have the mental bandwidth to consider other people’s hurt feelings.” (But just because you’re not the only drama queen doesn’t give you the excuse to be Cruella.)

2. You’re Thinking About Work All The Time

Your hours may be nine to five, but your mind is occupied with work 24/7. During your commute, while eating dinner, when you’re trying to fall asleep, in your dreams—you know the drill. It’s the sole topic of conversation when talking with friends and family, and the only thing you can think about when you’re pretending to listen to them (smile, nod, smile, nod).

I’m not saying you should limit every thought about it to specific days and times—you’re not a robot (if you are, though, no judgment here). But as Adrian Granzella Larrsen, Editor-in Chief of The Daily Muse says, “bringing too much work home—even if that work is just rolling around in your head—can quickly make you an anxious, sleep-deprived, pretty boring dinner guest.” And no one wants that!

3. You Can’t Focus Enough To Actually Be Productive

It’s time to get down to it, but you just can’t seem to make any progress (or even get started). Countless thoughts are bouncing around inside your head at lightning speed, and you have no idea how to control them. And so begins the vicious cycle—you’re overwhelmed because you’ve got a lot to do, but you’re fretting about it so much that you can’t accomplish anything.

You can blame this frustrating situation on your body’s response to regular anxiety, which is really helpful when you need survival mode to kick in, but not so helpful when it’s impairing your concentration.

4. You Aren’t Sleeping Well (Or At All)

You’re exhausted at the end of the day, but when you finally retire for the night, you spend hours staring at the ceiling. At last, you drift off (hopefully), but you toss and turn all night. When you wake up the next morning, you’re just as tired as you were before.

“When we’re stressed,” says Lindsay Holmes, Deputy Healthy Living Editor for The Huffington Post, “our minds race with thoughts instead of shutting down at night, inhibiting important functions involved in memory, muscle repair and mood (yikes).”

It gets worse, says Holmes. It can also lead to persistent insomnia and a malfunctioning immune system (which explains that nagging cold I get each year). Weird dreams are also a common symptom—such as that time my subconscious explored the ins and outs of PowerPoint, which was super riveting and enlightening.

5. Your Entire Body Feels Sore

When there’s too much tension in your mind, it’ll manifest itself in your body in several ways, as well—pain and stiffness in your back, neck, hips and shoulders; headaches; a clenched jaw; and more.

“When the brain senses a threat, it activates the sympathetic nervous system and signals the adrenal glands to pump out adrenaline, cortisol and other hormones that prime the body for action,” shares Melinda Beck, a health contributor for The Wall Street Journal. “Together, they make the muscles tense up, the digestive tract slow down, blood vessels constrict and the heart beats faster.”

And when your body has this reaction unnecessarily—like to an overflowing inbox rather than to a saber tooth tiger—your muscles will remain contracted for a prolonged period of time (hence all those knots in your upper back).

Listen—you can’t avoid feeling this way all the time. It’s part of life, and sometimes very important. But when it’s long-term, the effects can be harmful. So, while you can’t eliminate it completely, you can prevent it from spinning out of control and taking over your life. The first step? Being aware of your behavior and how you feel.

And then, figure out the best way to manage your to-do list, remember to take (frequent) breaks, disconnect fully on a regular basis and when you need to—ask for help. Learning how to successfully manage stress is key to a happy and healthy life. So, go on, conquer it! It’ll pay off big time.




Scientists have long examined the effects of red wine weight loss and the results they got will sure favor the ladies.

A study conducted at the Harvard University tracked 20,000 women for 13 years and the results showed that women who had two glasses of red wine a day experienced no problems with obesity. Similar studies have shown that red wine stimulates fat burning.
The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry published a study which tried to determine what do grapes actually do within the body and how can red wine stimulate weight loss.
Their experiment involved lab mice and showed that mice were less likely to store liver fat when they were given red wine grape extract. The same group of mice also showed decreased blood sugar levels. Surprisingly, acids in grapes have the ability to delay growth of fatty cells.

Snacking red wine
People drink red wine instead of having their evening snack. Experts say that a glass of red wine has less calories than a piece of cake, ice cream and chips. It also contains almost no bad fats.
This helped Linda Monk to lose 6 pounds within three weeks. She claims that red wine really helped her to reduce sugar cravings and eat less unhealthy snacks before bedtime.
Red wine — Health benefits
  • Red wine not only aids weight loss, but also provides a wide range of benefits, due to its high resveratrol content.
  • Resveratrol is a strong antioxidant that has shown to prevent cancer. It protects heart health and prevents Alzheimer’s Disease, because of its ability to prevent cell damage.
  • Resveratrol is associated with longer life span and higher athletic performance.
Is there anything to be concerned for?
Remember, just because red wine is super healthy and aids in losing weight, that does not mean that you should drink a whole bottle at once. The secret lies in moderation.
What’s Popular Now

You should also make a difference between having red wine instead of a snack and drinking it along with your snack. Combining a glass of wine and a piece of cake only means extra calories, and that sure hurts.
Make sure you do not drink wine late at night. It may affect your goodnight’s sleep and cause drowsiness in the morning. However, that applies to individuals only. You know your own body, meaning you know what is best for you.
The most important thing is to remember that having a glass of wine once in a while does not affect your body line; on the contrary, it may be the key to an attractive body.
