Try A Quick Health Tip

May 19, 2008
Here are some quick health tips and information. Choose one and put it into practice straight away. When that's part of your life, add another one. Small steps lead to big changes:

Reduce the number of times you go to the supermarket. The more often you go the more you are likely to buy unhealthy food. Eat something before you go to - research shows you buy more when you're hungry.

A bath made by adding 4 or 5 drops of chamomile oil, or several cups of chamomile tea is relaxing and can help dry, itching or sunburnt skin.

Eat garlic, leeks and onions for the probiotics they contain. These feed the healthy bacteria in our guts.

Watercress contains 12 times as much vitamin C as lettuce and more iron than spinach. Eat some today!

Most people take 3000-4000 steps a day. For the sake of your health (and your weight) you should be taking at least 10,000. Buy a pedometer and get walking.

Some migraine sufferers find that the supplement Coenzyme Q10 reduces the frequency of attacks.

Eating processed meat products such as bacon, sausages and smoked ham increases your risk of getting stomach cancer.

Research has shown that water plays a vital role in our immune systems ability to fight infection, making those who drink sufficient less likely to suffer from flu and colds. A cheap health tip - drink more water.

If you are giving up smoking or cutting down on alcohol, change the routines that are associated with these activities, just for a while.

If you suffer from stress incontinence, learn how to do pelvic floor exercises. They work for both men and women.

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine researchers have found that men carrying a few extra pounds in early adulthood nearly double their chance of developing painful knee and hip osteoarthritis later in life. Want to get fit, eat more healthily, lose weight? Find a buddy who wants to do the same things.

Drinking tea with meals increases your chances of suffering from anaemia as tea decreases the absorption of iron.

The American Chiropractic Association says: When standing, keep one foot slightly in front of the other, with your knees slightly bent. This position helps to take the pressure off your low back.

Try valerian tablets if you can't sleep.

An Israeli study found that those who suffered from job 'burn out' were twice as likely to develop Type 2 diabetes. Your job is important, but so are you.

Eating pumpkin seeds has been shown to be good for the prostate. They've got a great taste too - add them to salads or just eat them as they are.

Don't take health advice from unhealthy people. It has been estimated that between 44,000 and 98,000 patients in the USA die each year as the result of medical mistakes. Speak up if you are concerned. Be actively part of the process.

Gum disease has been linked to an increase in heart problems. Bizarre as it may seem, flossing your teeth and seeing a dental hygienist may help prevent heart disease.

Symptoms can be nature's way of telling us something is wrong. When you just try to stop the symptoms, you may be killing the messenger?
