The ‘twin’ words - senility and dementia are recurrent health issues associated with Alzheimer’s – a disease that most people growing into the senior citizen zones tend to dread. In the days of yore when the awareness was very remote I guess most folks probably thought it was an issue that had to do with the individual – probably going nuts, or just being difficult.

Healthy feeding for men and the importance of wholesome, nourishing foods

In his book In Defense of Food, Michael Pollan offers three simple, easy-to-remember “rules” for eating: 1. Eat food, 2. Not too much, 3. Mostly plants. Eating food should not be aimed at merely filling your stomach – it is more than that regular daily routine we think it is. Food helps you to fight diseases and stay healthy, strong, and look even younger. Thus how you eat as a man is what will predict or explain how you are bound to age.

Very often too we hear medical experts say they do not know exactly what causes cancer except that cancer is any malignant growth or tumour caused by abnormal and uncontrolled cell division; it may spread to other parts of the body through the lymphatic system or the blood stream. And so there is no particular virus or bacteria, etc. that is known to be responsible for cancer! Is there a (natural) cure for cancer hiding somewhere; is it really a disease?

Orange Peel and its Many Health Advantages

Back in the days when we were growing up in the village I remember vividly that my mother sometimes would boil herbs of orange leaves, guava and mango leaves as well, for the purpose of curing malaria (fever) using the steam bath approach. Then I cannot recall her making use of orange peels for anything. But now orange peels have also proven to be highly potent as a remedy for various ailments. Oranges are very popular fruits in Nigeria but very few people identify with the peel, which is arguably the healthiest part of the entire fruit as modern research has shown.

Hormonal Imbalance - Causes and Effects, and Natural Cures

Hormones are the secretions of endocrine glands transmitted by the blood to the tissue on which they have specific effects; they are chemical “messengers” that impact on the way your cells and organs function.

And so, it is normal for your levels to shift at different times of your life, such as before and during your period or a pregnancy, or during menopause. But some medications and health issues can as well cause them to go up or down. There are also natural safe ways to dealing with your problems.
