Are You Possessed by Demons? Symptoms and Signs of Real Demonic Possession

Demon possession is real and silently affects most souls on Earth. Below we will outline symptoms and signs of real demonic possession and what to look out for.

Demons succeed in not being detected due to “partial possession”. What most people do not understand is that demons seek to only “partially” possess the mind, body and soul of a human being. They do this because they wish to remain undetected within the soul of a human being. These demon spirits seek to disrupt a soul’s spiritual path and to steal its light. They do this by causing addictions within the soul and by increasing feelings of low-self worth, self-hate, anger, rage, hate, grief, sadness, depression and anxiety. The majority of human beings who are possessed by these dark entities have no idea they have such an entity within them.

Demons pray on souls who are in a weakened state emotionally, mentally and physically. This weakened state causes splits and fractures in the soul and leads to “holes” in the aura. Demon entities are then able to enter the soul without detection. Most demon possession occurs as a result of the soul “fragmenting” due to emotional trauma or shock or fright. This phenomena is explained by Jesus Christ in the following channeled message from Kim Michaels:

Jesus Christ: “As the soul experiences a traumatic situation, a part of it separates itself from the main part of the soul. When a part of the soul’s substance has been split off, there is a vacuum inside the soul. Because of the imperfect conditions found on this planet, it is highly likely that the vacuum is invaded by non-material beings such as demons. The vast majority of human beings have some kind of split or fracture in their souls, and therefore have been invaded.”

Symptoms And Signs You Are Demon Possessed

Demon possession is nearly always responsible for the following human conditions: mental illness, depression, schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, multiple personality disorder, paranoia, acute anxiety, panic attacks, personality disorder, psychosis, delusional disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, narcissistic personality, serial killing, rape / murder / torture, mental / emotional / sexual abusing, child molestation / pedophilia, addiction (drug, alcohol, sex, obesity, etc), eating disorders, suicide and suicidal thoughts, self-harming behavior (cutting), Alzheimer’s / dementia, insomnia.

The above conditions are more chronic symptoms of a “large” number of demon and earthbound spirits having gained entry into the soul. Demon spirits in fewer numbers are commonly responsible for causing physical pain, cramps, physical illnesses, headaches, mood swings, and more intense “fear-based” emotions such as anger, hate, bitterness, depression, sadness, anxiety and low self-worth.

This article has been written to educate souls on this phenomena of demon possession and to let you know there are many tools available on the below mentioned website to protect you from these dark forces and to cleanse your soul of any existing demon entities.

I’m Not Going Away, Would You?

October 9, 2006

I’m not going away, would you? Cynthia Allen asked that question the other day.

Though I would like to write about the boy Joey was, about how everyone loved him, and about how much he wanted to get better and lead a normal life, I feel compelled to write about what really happened to Joey Aletriz and how his mom feels about it.

I stopped to think about her question, and these thoughts came to mind:

Imagine how it would feel if you had a teenaged boy who needed help to cope with issues in his life. You and he together sought help and you thought you’d found it. You enrolled him into a residential treatment program for kids with the promise that within six months they could help him overcome his issues. Two months after you put him in the program you receive a phone call, “I’m sorry, Mrs. Allen, but we don’t think Joey is going to make it.”

Imagine your pain and the feeling of disbelief, the thoughts rushing through your head as you remember your son’s words about a boy who had died there just weeks earlier. Imagine rushing to the hospital to find your child lifeless, laying on a bed, his face bruised nearly beyond recognition. Being a nurse, you understood all that was being said and all that was going on around your son. You watched as they continued to try to revive him, only to give up when they knew there was no way he was going to come back to life. Imagine holding your child in your arms when there was no life left – this is the tragic scenario Cynthia was forced to endure.

Cynthia was told her son was restrained because he did not want to give staff back the hooded sweatshirt he was wearing. But Cynthia recalls the sweatshirt met their dress code and that her son should have been allowed to wear it. She also recalls it was cold that February day. She remembers the barrack-style rooms the boys slept in and how cold it was there. Why was there an issue about his hoodie, his mom wondered?

Being a nurse Cynthia knew what happened to her son was more than simply a restraint. She has been trained in restraints and has had to perform restraints. If restraints are done according to policy and procedure they do not cause the types of injuries her son sustained. She understood when she read the preliminary autopsy report. She was dismayed to learn the stomach contents of her son were in his nasal cavity. One side of his face was black and blue and the other side had a hemotoma from his temple to his jaw. His organs were damaged and he had bruising consistent with that of a slug or kick on different areas of his body. The list went on as her anguish grew.

Joey’s mom lives with the memory of that day every day. She cannot shake what has happened to her son. She cannot allow his death to be in vain. She cried last week when she said, “They never even said they were sorry. No one has ever told me they were sorry for killing my son.”

I feel Cynthia has good cause to be concerned and to want to seek justice for her son, Joey. She is not only concerned about what happened to her son, but what has happened to the countless others. Her goal is to see to it other parents do not have to endure the agonizing pain she has had to endure, and continues to endure. She said, “I don’t know what I’m going to do, it’s almost the holidays. I don’t know how I will survive them without Joey this year. I will have to hold it together for Alex”. Alex is her older son who, too, is grieving for the loss of his little brother.

The juvenile justice system did not protect Joey when they suggested his mother place him in a facility operated by a company with a history of abusive practices, some leading to death.

Below is a list of sixteen seventeen children who have died just over the past year while they were in youth programs (that we know of, there are undoubtedly others):

On September 11, 2005, 12-year old Shirley Arciszewski was restrained and died of asphyxia at the Charlotte Group Home in South Carolina.

On September 13, 2005, 12-year old Alex Harris died of dehydration and blow to the head, allegedly when he was dropped on his head at Hope Youth Ranch in Minden.

On September 18, 2005, 14-year old Linda Harris was physically restrained by a male worker at the Chad Youth Enhancement Center. She stopped breathing and later died.

On October 8, 2005, 13-year old Kasey Warner was found dead in 12″ of water at the ViaQuest Warren Avenue group home. Kasey was an autistic boy who had never spoken a word. Though is mother was promised he would have round-the-clock care and supervision and that he would never be left alone, he was left alone and drowned in a bathtub with 12″ of water.

On October 13, 2005, 17-year old Willie Durden, died at the privately managed Cypress Creek Juvenile Offender Correctional Center in Lecanto, in Citrus County. An autopsy concluded Willie died of ventricular arrhythmia, due to an enlarged and diseased heart. A recent report says guards waited about 20 minutes after discovering the limp teen before calling 911 and beginning CPR. A guard told investigators he waited to begin CPR because teens sometimes “play pranks.”

On December 5, 2005, 12-year old Michael “Mickey” Garcia was placed in a basket hold restraint by a staff member at Star Ranch facility in Texas. Mickey stopped breathing, could not be revived, and later died.

On December 12, 2005, 16-year old James White lost his life at SummitQuest Academy, in Ephrata, PA. According to newspaper articles his death is being investigated. Allegedly he fell during exercise and died.

On December 26, 2005, 14-year old Johnny Lim complained of an excruciating headache, vomited, and fell to the floor in his cell at the King County Juvenile Detention Center in Washington. The county’s medical examiner ruled the death a “spontaneous brain-stem hemorrhage” attributable to natural causes. There are many unanswered questions by Lim’s family and attorney representing staff and the center.

On January 6, 2006, 14-year old Martin Lee Anderson died at a Pensacola hospital one day after guards at the Bay County Sheriff’s Office Boot Camp punched, kneed, and applied pressure to his head in an attempt to force him to continue running laps. An autopsy ordered by a special prosecutor concluded Martin died of asphyxia after guards covered his mouth and shoved ammonia capsules up his nose. A use-of-force report said the guards had thought Martin was malingering.

On February 4, 2006, 16-year old Giovanni “Joey” Aletriz died after being beaten and restrained at SummitQuest in Ephrata, PA (details above).

On May 26, 2006, 7-year old Angellika Arndt lost her life at the Northwest Guidance and Counseling Center in Rice Lake, WI. Angie had been restrained nine times in the month she was there, each restraint lasting one to two hours, one time she was restrained for “gargling milk”. She was restrained again the next day, and the following she died as a result of the restraint.

On May 31, 2006, 12-year old Lenny Ortega drowned during an outing at Star Ranch in Texas. The facility was under investigation for the death and alleged abuse of other children there; the facility has been shut down pending an investigation.

On June 17, 2006, 13-year old Dillon Tyler Peak died after becoming ill at the Peace River Outward Bound wilderness camp in DeSoto County, Florida. Officials say Dillon apparently died of a severe case of encephalitis. The death remains under investigation.

On July 16, 2006, 16-year old Elisa Santry died after hiking in the wilderness in 110° weather while attending an Outward Bound wilderness expedition. She was separated from her group for 10 hours before being found, dead, alone on the side of a canyon. She had complained she did not feel well early that morning, yet she was allowed to hike alone.

On July 31, 2006, 16-year old Natalynndria Lucy Slim was found by a friend hanging from a computer cord. Her death is being investigated and is considered a suicide at the Adolescent Residential Treatment Center operated by the Presbyterian Medical Services.

On August 4, 2006, 14-year old Danieal Kelly died during a heat wave. She was bedridden, infested with maggots, and nearly paralyzed with cerebral palsy. She died in extreme heat, dehydrated, weighing just 46 pounds when she died. She wasted away in bed with bedsores, under the nose of the city’s social service agency, according to an October 25, 2006, MSNBC article, 14-year-old Pa. girl died of dehydration; workers failed to notice neglect.

On August 12, 2006, 16-year old Alex Cullinane died of dehydration at Back to Basics Christian Military Academy. His death is under investigation. He did not eat for days, according to other children, and complained of stomach pain. He died in the middle of the night after getting up to use the bathroom.

Below are two children who died this past year who were allegedly abused during their stay at Tranquility Bay in Jamaica. Both boys were featured in the June 22, 2006, “Rough Love” article:

On June 6, 2006, Kerry Layne Brown was found dead in his bed. Layne spent nine months at the World Wide Association of Specialty Programs (WWASPS) program, Tranquility Bay, where he was tortured – he was pepper-sprayed multiple times a day for months (a staff member admitted to it on videotape), his genitals were scrubbed with toilet brushes. His life was never the same and he died at the young age of 24. His death is under investigation.

On June 7, 2006, Carter Lynn was found dead hanging from the rafter in his home. Carter had been interviewed about his experiences, also at WWASPS’ Tranquility Bay program in Jamaica. His death is also under investigation.

How to Stop Being Emotionally Paralyzed in a Stressful Relationship

A big indication that you are in a stressful relationship, either at work or at home, is that when you think about the particular person or situation, you feel paralyzed.

You can’t move forward. You can’t move back. You are stuck and the stress is killing you!

The reason you feel paralyzed is that you have made a commitment to this relationship and don’t feel you can abandon it. Either it’s your job and you don’t want to lose it, or it’s a serious relationship in your family or with your “significant other.” So you have already invested a lot of time, energy and hope in this relationship. And yet it’s not working. Something has gone very wrong.

Let’s say the problem is in your marriage. It could as easily be a paralyzed situation with an in-law, or with your boss, a co-worker or assistant.

It could be that warning signs were there from the start but, as so often happens when signals don’t jive with what you decided you want, you ignored them and barreled ahead with the relationship. At times, you might have felt a nagging uncertainty about it, but you dismissed your inner misgivings as being cold feet or perhaps the normal anxiety about getting married.

But now you realize that you’re stressed out all the time and if you’re honest about it, you can see the pattern has been there all along. There was a blueprint from the start, as if for a garden layout, and now all the plants are full grown because years have passed and you kept reacting to each other in unhealthy ways. You’re choking in the weeds, miserable and confused, when you thought you were going to have wedded bliss with roses, fragrant lilies and singing birds.

If you weren’t fully invested in this relationship, it would be a lot easier to split up, go away and move forward. But usually, we enmesh ourselves thoroughly so that making a decision to stay or go leads to feeling unable to do either one whole-heartedly.

Do you feel paralyzed? Are you wondering what to do next? Does relationship ambivalence keep your mind churning with indecision, and your stomach churning with anxiety? Then set aside quiet time to think about these three points:

1. If you imagine yourself leaving, do you notice a sudden release of tension in your shoulders? That’s a clue that your heart really does want you to find freedom from this untenable relationship, and simply go, to find a fresh start.

2. If leaving makes you feel instantly panicked and afraid, that can indicate that you have a lot of work to do on your own self-esteem before making a decision either way. So give yourself the gift of time to keep thinking about what is in your best interest. No need to rush, unless physical abuse is involved — in that case, don’t delay a minute more. Get yourself and your kids to safety.

3. If things are basically “good enough” and you have already made the decision to stay, then stop behaving the way you always have. If you’ve gotten into a habit of arguing all the time, cut it out.

Understand that to end the paralysis will require action on your part. You need to shake up the way you run your life and stop dancing to the old tunes that are not working for you.

How to Strengthen Your Lower Esophageal Sphincter

The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) muscle is situated between the stomach and the esophagus (throat). It opens to allow food to pass from the esophagus into the stomach. It closes to keep food and acid from flowing up from the stomach into the esophagus. Acid is produced in your stomach to help break down food for digesting. When the lower esophageal sphincter muscle is weak, acid flows up into the esophagus and can irritate and burn inner parts of the body.

So, have you found out that you have gastroesphageal reflux disease (GERD)? Many people don’t even know that they have it. It effects infants as well as adults. Heartburn is the most common symptom of GERD. Other terms for heartburn are acid indigestion and acid reflux. More than 25 million adults suffer from heartburn daily.

Causes of Gastroesphageal Reflux Disease

Some doctors believe that a hiatal hernia may weaken the lower esophageal sphincter muscle and cause reflux. Reflux means the return flow of a liquid. A hiatal hernia is caused when the upper stomach moves up into the chest through a small opening in the diaphragm. Coughing may cause a hiatal hernia. A person of any age can have one. Many healthy people over the age of 50 have a small one. If it is severe you may feel a constant pain behind your breast plate. The pain can last for months.

The Problem with Soy

Isoflavones are chemical compounds. Glycitein, genistein and daidzein are isoflavones found in soy. They mimic estrogen. Estrogen weakens the lower esophageal sphincter muscle. Soy is found in most every food today because it is a cheap commodity. If you’ll exam the ingredients on the packages that you purchase, you’ll see that soy is in bread, peanut butter, coffee mate non-dairy creamer, salad dressing, infant formula. The list is endless. The vegetable oil on the shelves in grocery stores is usually soybean oil, unless the oil is specifically labeled such as olive, safflower, sunflower, almond etc.

Other Foods

Certain foods and beverages can weaken the lower esophageal sphincter muscle. It would be helpful to avoid tobacco, alcohol, coffee (caffeinated and decaffeinated), caffeine, carbonated beverages, chocolate, peppermint, refined sugar and pastries, citrus, fried foods, fat and fatty foods, soy products (unless fermented), and especially avoid tomatoes and tomato products. Tomatoes are very acidic. Think twice before you eat that delicious pizza.

You must be very conscientious about reading the ingredients on the packages of the food that you purchase. Sugar is always harmful to the body and is in most food. Tomato is also in a lot of packaged food.

Foods to Encounter

Aloe Vera Gel Gets Two Thumbs Up

Aloe Vera Gel (whole leaf) could be taken before A.M. and P.M. meals. It is a natural remedy for acid reflux. The suggested dose is 4 oz. per day. If you have ulcers it would be a good idea to take a tablespoon (less of a dose). Until you feel the ulcers are healed. Otherwise too much Aloe Vera Gel may exasperate the ulcer condition.

Aloe Vera Gel coats the throat and stomach. Aloe Vera is a healing plant. Over time the lower esophageal sphincter muscle should strengthen. I’d give it a good year. A year is a normal length of time for anything in the body to reverse from disease and heal.

Ginger Is Beneficial

Drinking ginger tea can help keep stomach acid under control. It may take a couple of weeks until you see a difference. The suggested dose is 3 cups per day, with distilled water. It is best to drink the tea without sugar, honey or lemon juice. Refined sugar doesn’t do the body any good. It and citrus should be avoided anyway. The tea should be steeped.

How to Steep Tea

  1. Boil distilled water
  2. Pour 6 oz. of boiled water over a tea bag in a cup
  3. Place a saucer on top of the cup for 5-10 minutes

After you’ve steeped your tea, it is a good habit to squeeze the tea bag with your spoon up against the inside wall of the cup. Doing that and steeping enhances the strength of the tea.

Enjoy!

Other Tips for Controlling Acid Reflux

Modify eating habits:

  1. Eat many small meals during the day
  2. Eat nothing 3 hours before going to bed (especially spicy foods)
  3. Avoid lying down after eating
  4. Eat slowly
  5. Eat in an upright position

Sleep in an upright position or at a 45 degree angle by:

  1. Using a wedged pillow
  2. Using an adjustable chair or bed
  3. Sleeping on your left side at a 45 degree angle so that the sphincter valve closes
  4. Elevating the head of the bed by 6-8 inches with blocks

Try to avoid using abdominal pressure such as:

  1. Heavy lifting
  2. Bending at the waist
  3. Tight belts, clothes, etc.
  4. Slumping in chairs
  5. Straining with bowel movements

Note: With the above diet you may lose a few pounds.

Grow Taller After Puberty

Usually, people say and feel that after the age of 18, the growth is limited. Moms repeatedly tell their wards, “run and exercise now before you grow out of the growing period.” It is a usual ideology; not really unwarranted as it has a little science attached to the fact. But, science usually has answers to various problems. In this case too, it has good answers about how to grow taller after puberty.

After puberty, the growth areas or growth plates in the long bones fuse together obstructing any more growth. This is the reason there is said to be no area for growth, medically of course. But many people have grown taller even after puberty.

So, individuals, who want to grow taller after puberty, can concentrate on other areas – the spine and the knee cartilage.

The spine has bones that are never fused together except the lowest nine. Between the bones, there is cartilage called as a spinal disk; which helps in cushioning impacts. These disks can be stimulated to thicken and the length of your back can be increased. This requires simple exercises like swimming, hanging that stimulate the secretion of the Growth Hormone by the pituitary gland. This directly increases your height.

Simultaneously, you can work on the knee cartilage too to thicken it and thus, grow taller after puberty. The knee cartilage will have to be subjected to a lot of stress and accurate exercises to increase its length and width. This exercise is called as Micro Fracture & Ankle Weights technique. Eventually, the knee cartilage gets used to these exercises.

It is also found that more than one session of exercise in a day increases the amount of Growth Hormone secreted during the entire day. This shows that having multiple exercising periods during a day can increase the range of your growth. Not to forget, the amount of good sleep that is quintessential, during which the maximum amount of Growth Hormone is secreted.

These measures help break the myth that people can’t grow taller after a certain age, especially after puberty.

Migraine – Or is Nerve Damage Causing Your Headache?

Millions of people suffer from headaches. This often causes missed work days. less productive days, and less enjoyable days. Migraine is a specific intracranial vascular headache. Many use the term mistakenly to describe other types of headaches. There are many other causes of headache and many of these can be caused by nerve dysfunction.

The occipital nerve is a large nerve in the neck. It can be damaged by such things as whiplash injuries and improper patient positioning during oral surgery. Occipital neuralgia causes pain in the back of the head but this can be referred to other areas. This is because the ganglion interconnects with the trigeminal ganglion in the brain stem. Throbbing is often associated with this type of headache because of proximity to the occipital artery.

The auriculotemporal nerve is located near the ear and the top of the jaw on both sides. Common headaches with problems to this nerve are temple headaches. This nerve is commonly damaged in TMJ surgery. it is usually pounding because it is near the temporal artery.

Another nerve that can cause problem is compression of the ethmoid nerve in the sinuses. An ear nose and throat doctor can diagnosis this problem by seeing if the patient has tenderness when using the instrument commonly used to explore the sinuses.

Another type of neuralgia that can be found involves the supraorbital nerve and can be caused by a head hitting a windshield or a punch to the front of the head. Treatment and diagnosis involves injection of local anesthetic with steroid. The headache can sometimes take years before it starts to present problems.

The infraorbital nerve can also cause problems and is often misdiagnosed as maxillary sinusitis.

Nerve problems causing headaches are different than migraines and need to be treated as such. Diagnosis is made by injection of local anesthetic into the nerve that seems to be the problem. Treatment is directed at reversing the underlying pathology. Entrapments are treated with injectable anti inflammatory medications. Always remember you can’t treat what you can’t diagnosis. Patients as well as doctors need to be proactive in finding a potential source for chronic headaches.

Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief – 5 Tips For Quick Relief of Sciatica

Finding an effective treatment for sciatic nerve pain relief can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Treatments that may work for some, may not necessarily work for you. Meanwhile, you may be suffering from mild to severe pain from the small of your back to the back of your thighs and legs. There are many pills, lotions and medications that are designed to give you quick relief, but many come with side effects and are used in possibly addictive dosages. We will explore some simple home remedies which have known to give natural sciatic nerve pain relief.

  1. Take an Epsom Salt Bath. Epsom salt can be found in any local drug store. Liberally add to the water in your tub and take a relaxing bath. The Epsom salts are known to naturally draw toxins out of your body as well as sedate the nervous system. It is also beneficial because Epsom salt when dissolved in water is known to ease stress and improve concentration and sleep. A great treatment for sciatic nerve pain.
  2. Take a cold shower. Yes, the opposite of the Epsom salt bath can also be helpful when undergoing pain. Cold showers are known to loosen up your body muscles and reduce any built up inflammation. You can also do this first before doing your Epsom salt bath.
  3. Drink plenty of water. You should never get dehydrated when having this type of nerve pain. Drink plenty of water to keep your body muscles hydrated and prevent them from putting extreme pressure on the nerve.
  4. Eat magnesium rich foods. I had a client who immediately ate peanuts when he felt sciatic nerve pain coming on. The high magnesium content of peanuts stopped his pain almost immediately. Of course, if you have a peanut allergy, this treatment may not be for you. Other foods high in magnesium include walnuts, pistachios, cashews, almonds, organic beans and bananas. It is sensible to always keep a supply of these types of helpful foods at hand, especially for sciatic nerve pain relief.
  5. Do some yoga poses. Research or see a yoga professional and learn some yoga poses that are known to reduce pain and pressure on your back. Yoga not only reduces pressure, but also calms you and reduces stress when doing the breathing and concentration exercises.

You don’t have to suffer, and you may not also need to look in the medicine cabinet when looking for a quick relief from sciatica. These simple methods are not addictive or harmful, so give them a try next time you need relief.

Best Laryngitis Home Remedies Using Therapeutic Essential Oils

Laryngitis remedies using essential oils are far superior to most over-the-counter, synthetic choices because they create deep healing, rather than just covering up the symptoms. You’ll get over the laryngitis quicker and feel better while you’re healing and afterwards.

What Is Laryngitis?

It’s an inflammation usually caused by an infection of the vocal cords. It’s often the result of an upper respiratory infection of some type starting with a sinus infection, a cold, a sore throat, etc. and settling into the vocal cords. The cords swell, changing the sound of your voice. In severe cases, the voice becomes only a hoarse whisper. Your cords will often be covered with a hard, dry, incrusted mucous that must be dissolved.

With the approval of your health care professional, try these remedies.

Try an Aromatic Mouthwash

Make yourself an antibacterial mouthwash by using two drops of tea tree oil in a half cup of warm water. Put it in a water bottle or a container that you can close and shake vigorously to disperse the oil molecules throughout the water. Immediately gargle and swallow.

The Lick Trick

You’ll want to frequently take a trace of tea tree and mix it with the saliva of your mouth and swallow. We call this the “lick trick” because it’s easiest to lick the trace of oil off the back of your hand. You don’t want too much.

Put a drop of spearmint or peppermint essential oil in all your drinking water every day, even for a month after you’re feeling better. This will give you a deep cleansing, and you’ll love the refreshing, cooling taste of the water. When you have laryngitis, drink more water than usual to help break up the mucus on your vocal cords.

Antihistamines or any over-the-counter remedies designed to stop or dry up a cough or cold symptoms would make the laryngitis worse, so always avoid cold and cough remedies. Using these synthetic remedies tends to drive the infection deeper into your body and actually manifest elsewhere. Work with your body to naturally loosen the mucous and allow the infection to run its course quickly and naturally. Using oils in lots of different therapies will speed the process and help eliminate the infection completely for deep, permanent healing.

Use Oils in a Compress

Prepare a simple compress with four to five drops of a respiratory blend in a half cup of hot water. Use a mixture of oils like rosemary, tea tree, eucalyptus radiata, fir, peppermint, ravensara, or spearmint. You can use one or two of these oils alone as well. Dip a washcloth in the mixture, wring it out and apply it to the base of your neck covered with a dry cloth.

Oils in the Steam of Boiling Water

Boil a pan of water and add a few drops of a respiratory blend or one of the single oils discussed earlier. Place a towel over your head to contain the steam and inhale deeply until the fragrance starts to go away. You can blow into the water to agitate and increase the steam. Add a few more drops and inhale until you’ve inhaled about 20 drops of oil in all. Keep reheating the water as often as necessary.

Don’t diffuse oils in a dry room when you have laryngitis. That only hardens the mucous. Instead you can diffuse oils in a steamy bathroom as you shower or bathe. In fact using about 20 drops of oil in a hot Epsom salts bath and at the same time turning on the diffuser, also with about 20 drops of oil will help to break up the mucous as you soak.

How to Avoid the Coughing Stage of a Respiratory Infection

For many people, the last stage of a cold is often bronchitis, unless you can stop the infection on its way down your respiratory system. An infection often starts as a virus in the sinuses or throat, then it makes its way into laryngitis, and finally bronchitis.

Do everything you can from taking lots of essential oil capsules, taking hot baths or showers night and morning while diffusing oils, putting respiratory oils on your feet and chest after every bath, and using oils in all your water.

At the first sign of a cough, try to stop it in its tracks before your bronchioles become inflamed. Put cold compresses with peppermint oil on your chest at night before bed to keep those bronchioles cool and calm. If you start coughing during the day, have a little herbal tea or warm water with a drop of one of your favorite oils in it, like peppermint, spearmint, basil, or lemon.

Cure For Bad Breath At The Back Of The Throat Caused by Sinusitis

There are many reasons for bad breath so it is quite difficult to pin down the reasons in some cases. Most of the problems appear because of improper oral hygiene. However, if you are experiencing bad breath from the back of the throat, it is likely to be due to sinusitis and post nasal drip. If this is the case for you, you should know some things about this condition and how to handle it properly.

What is Sinusitis

Sinusitis refers to the inflammation of the paranasal sinuses. It can appear as a result of an infection or problems relating to fungal, allergies, viral, bacterial or autoimmune. This condition is closely linked with inflammation of the nose (rhinitis) also known as rhinosinusitis.

The human body has many paired paranasal sinuses. This includes the sphenoid, masillary, ethmoid and frontal sinuses. Ethmoid sinuses can be further divided as posterior and anterior. There are different levels of acuity of sinusitis and we can classify the disease by the cavity it affects.

Based on that, we can have maxillary sinusitis (which causes problems in the maxillary area showing headaches, toothaches and so on), sphenoid sinusitis (which affects the area behind the eyes causing pressure or pain and can also be linked with the vertex of the head), ethmoid sinusitis (which can also cause pain and/or pressure behind the eyes but can also be exhibited between them, usually causing headaches) and frontal sinusitis (which attacks the frontal sinus cavity, usually causing headaches).

Lately, it has been discovered that there is a link between sinusitis and different diseases that attack the respiratory tract. Often, this is linked to asthma. Every type of sinusitis can appear as a part of general inflammation of the airway and thanks to symptoms that are characteristic to this inflammation, like coughing, it can be easily detected.

Sinusitis and Post Nasal Drip

Bad breath is not caused directly by sinusitis. What happens is that the inflamed sinuses will produce a lot of mucous that varies in thickness. It tends to drip down the back area of our throats, thus appearing on the back of the tongue and throat. This condition is known as post nasal drip.

Such mucus is made of mostly protein which is food for anaerobic bacteria living in the mouth. When these bacteria feed on these proteins, they release bad odors through their waste products. To make matter worse, the lack of moisture in the areas affected allows anaerobic bacteria to multiply easily. Mucus will also get attached to the back of the neck and will create an uncontrollable urge to swallow for the person affected. In order to get rid of bad breath that appears at the back of the throat because of sinusitis and post nasal drip, we will need to eliminate the condition that is causing mucus development.

In most cases post nasal drip is caused by an allergy, flu or common cold. In such a situation you might need to wait for the condition to cure itself and take some medicine if you are suffering from allergies. On the other hand we can also fight post nasal drip and try to reduce it (even eliminate it) while it still is produced by sinusitis. Doctors can prescribe different drugs in order to reduce bad breath and discomfort caused by the condition. Usually we will find a mix of three: Sudafed, Guaifenesin and antithistamines as the possible solutions for such a case.

Sudafed is a decongestant that you can purchase without a prescription and works by opening the sinuses. It also reduces the mucus that is secreted when inflammation is exhibited. Guaifenesin will work at removing mucus directly and will make it easier for the patient to swallow. You can also purchase it without a prescription and the most common names under which it is sold are Mucinex or Robitussin. As antihistamine, doctors usually prescribe Allegra, Claritin or Benedryl. They are recommended for night use and tend to make the patient sleepy, especially in the case of Benedryl.

Bad breath can be fought when dealing with the condition highlighted here. The only persistent irritation is your urge to swallow because of the mucus at the back of your throat. One way to relief this is to eat a piece of bread, celery or any type of bulky food. Most patients who suffer from chronic problems with post nasal drips will have celery near them at night so that they can sleep easier.

Bad Breath is the Least of Your Worries

When dealing with sinusitis and post nasal drip, bad breath is the least of your problems. You can easily mask bad odors coming from the back of the neck. What you really need to do is to follow the prescription from your doctor. Failure to do this will only make the condition worse and you might end up with various types of pain, based on the type of sinusitis you are suffering from.

For most cases, bad breath will disappear as soon as the disease is under control. By combining medicine, a proper diet and proper oral hygiene you will quickly notice important improvements in your breath quality. Do note that besides sinusitis, tonsillitis is another possible cause that leads to post nasal drip. To have a proper diagnosis, it is very important for you to consult a doctor.

Penis Pain – Soothing a Sore Penis After Sex

As unfortunate a problem as it may be for those afflicted with it, penis soreness is a common problem for many men. There are various causes and conditions associated with penis pain, the knowledge of which may lead the owner to jump to conclusions regarding the seriousness of the problem. Luckily, a sore lovestick does not necessarily indicate the presence of a serious medical condition or sexually transmitted disease. In fact, it many cases, it is merely an unpleasant side effect with a benign cause, and proper penis care, and perhaps a few days of rest, can help rejuvenate and restore the penis back to its normal, pain-free state.

While old wives’ tales and teenage folklore may have spread the rumor that too frequent masturbation leads to blindness or hairy palms, thankfully, such side effects are no more than imaginative falsehoods. However, when facing the question of whether too frequent sex or masturbation can cause penis soreness, the answer is, in a word: yes. Although an active sex life — with or without a sexual partner — is perfectly healthy, too vigorous or too frequent of contact can cause pain or discomfort of the penis.

Penis Soreness Caused by Sex

Believe it or not, too much sex really can cause pain and soreness to the penis. The most likely culprit may be due to prolonged or unfamiliar sex. While this particular cause may more commonly afflict younger, less experienced men or those experiencing sex for the first time, it can happened to a seasoned pro as well. Reasons for soreness after a sexual encounter may be attributed to:

· Friction: either being unaccustomed to the new experience of the friction, or a different type of friction than usual

· Vigorous sex or masturbation

· Prolonged sex or masturbation

· Lack of lubrication or dryness

· Extended manual stimulation by a partner (otherwise known as a “hand job”)

Such soreness may be especially common on the foreskin, but will also occur on the shaft of the circumcised and uncircumcised penis alike. Irritation of the penis is likely to result in redness and irritation of the skin as well, a finding which can be quite alarming, but will subside with time. Extreme cases have been known to cause swelling of the penis as a result of lymph fluid in the tissue. When this occurs, it may take up to a week of solid rest for the penis to return to its normal size.

Treatment of a Sore Penis

Perhaps the best way to treat a sore penis caused by overuse is to underuse it for a few days. Giving it a much need rest by refraining from all forms of penis play will allow the skin to repair itself naturally. In most cases, no medical attention is needed. However, if the penis pain persists, worsens or is accompanied by excessive bleeding, discharge or unusual bumps, men should seek medical attention to rule out a more serious medical condition. Once sexual activity resumes, adequate lubrication can be used to reduce friction and offer protection for the sensitive penile skin. Engaging in less vigorous activities and shortening the length of time may also prevent excessive chafing of the skin.

For the individual who is anxious to get back on his feet — or off them as it were — a gentle penis health crème (most experts recommend Man 1 Man Oil) can provide much needed relief. Daily use of the crème, packed with vitamins and other essential ingredients, can provide instant relief to the uncomfortable area, all while healing damaged skin, enhancing sensitivity and generally improving the overall health and functioning of the penis.

Scalp Psoriasis – A Skin Disorder Of The Immune System Bringing Social Stigma In Its Wake

Scalp psoriasis is an embarrassing, non contagious, genetic skin disorder of the immune system. Severe psoriasis is reputed to even lead to psoriatic arthritis. Scalp psoriasis can manifest itself as mild scales or as thick plaques in severe cases. Care should be taken not to confuse Scalp psoriasis, which is exemplified by the silvery, powdery appearance of the scale with Seborrheic dermatitis, which has greasy yellow scales. The crumbly powder of Scalp psoriasis gives rise to dandruff which everyone is trying to avoid.

The advent of Scalp psoriasis is normally attributed to the hair dryers and the spurious hair supplements that we use so often. When the skin gross rapidly at a pace which is more than normal, it leads to red lesions covered by the scales and severe dandruff problems are normally associated with the onset of Scalp psoriasis. It is a cause for severe social embarrassment, although the hair camouflages the psoriasis. Ayurvedic medicine claims that immune deficiency is a main reason for psoriasis.

Loosening and removal of the scales are paramount in the treatment of Scalp psoriasis. Some recommend the use of calcipotriol lotion, but these do little but to reduce the itching that accompanies this aliment. For proper de-scaling, sporadic or more consistent use of tropical steroids is recommended, based on the severity of the manifestation.

Some of the home remedies recommended is the application of tar – based anti psoriasis shampoo where the coconut oil content also nourishes your hair. Wash your hair daily and avoid exposure to the sun. Rubbing warmed olive oil to the Scalp and letting it soak for 30 minutes before you wash it off with special shampoo is also considered a good remedy. In some cases, Scalp psoriasis is known to disappear on its own, but in other cases it has been known to persist. According to Ayurveda psoriasis can be treated with Panchakarma treatment, which in simple terms, is the detoxification of the impure ‘Doshas’ (bad features) from the body.

Some of the simple preventive measures for Scalp psoriasis include avoiding scratching the Scalp, brushing your hair regularly and cutting your hair short for facilitating the penetration of medicines.

The psychological aspects of psoriasis and the mental distress it brings to sufferers must be understood in their correct perspective. Acceptance of this condition is the first step towards coping with this disease. Often, it is the lack of good information that brings about fear and embarrassment. People who are afflicted should continue their social activities and not turn into a recluse, which can again instigate the manifestation of depression and panic. Read as much as you can about this affliction from the Internet and the other sources and also discuss frankly with friends. Finally, also get a good hair dresser who can understand your problem and serve you well.
