How to Avoid Buying Toxic Cosmetics Online

Many of these stores sell nail polish, blush on, and any online stores sell nail polish, blush-on and makeup. But what most people don’t know is that many, if not all, of these products are highly toxic. Despite well designed and marketed labels, many of these are highly toxic with little or no information given on the packaging or the site about its dangers. The end result is the hundreds of horror stories in newspapers and websites of women who have experienced severe adverse effects owing to use of cosmetics they purchased online. The surprising bit about this is the fact that it’s not just small or new manufacturers but also a few established ones that fail to inform their buyers. Finding out if they are toxic? If you want to find out if a cosmetic product contains dangerous toxins then make sure to read the label. There should be a list of ingredients either on the box, the leaflet or on the website itself. If there is no detailed description of exactly what the makeup contains then it is best not to take the risk of buying something that may be dangerous to your health. The reason being that credible and established manufacturers will always list what their product contain even if they are selling it at a low price point. Beware of this toxic trio If there...

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is defined by the World Federation of Chiropractic as “A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.” In other words, chiropractors believe in the body’s inherent ability to heal when the nervous system of the body is allowed to perform this task without interference. Diseases may afflict the body whenever the nervous system is compromised. The most common being the entrapment of a nerve. This creates a reaction of reflexes that affects blood flow and eventually, the organ that the blood is supplied to become stressed and works abnormally. The job of a chiropractor is to remove interference to the nervous system so that the body will be able to heal itself naturally. How does chiropractic treatment help? Chiropractors are concerned with the interaction of the muscular-skeletal system and the nervous system, structurally. As the nervous system controls every cell in the body, it is important to keep that structure at an optimal state to function well. The chiropractic approach is to detect, correct and prevent nerve entrapment within the system naturally. Hence, everybody benefits from chiropractic; be it an athlete, an elderly, an adult or a...

Increase Your Testosterone with Yoga

Men and women both produce the hormone. Men do it through their testicles, while the women secrete the hormone through the ovaries. Both sexes also produce the hormone through the adrenal glands. Though both produce testosterone, men produce it ten times more than women. Testosterone is normally looked upon as the sex hormone, but it has many roles in a male body. It is responsible for their sex drive, libido and sperm production, plus it also ensures traits in males that are considered to be masculine. These traits include physical strength, muscle mass, body hair, dominant behavior and bone strength. As men age the testosterone levels increase till a certain age then start to decrease gradually. In some of them the decrease can be sharper than others. Decreased testosterone levels mean a decrease in a male’s libido and sex drive. However, since the hormone plays other important functions in a male’s body, the other functions are also affected. Men feel fatigued and less motivated to work despite getting plenty of sleep. This happens because the hormone is an anabolic hormone responsible for muscle strength and overall energy. Hair loss, especially facial hair loss, and an increased amount of body fats are also experienced in such a scenario. Increasing Testosterone There are many ways of increasing the amount of testosterone produced in a male body. The easiest of them all...

The S5 Arrives

The last year or so, the big debate on the best smartphone to buy was centred on whether to choose the Samsung Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5. Then last February, that discussion has been overtaken by how appealing is the new Samsung S5 which was launched at the Mobile World Congress in Spain. The verdict (so far) from the world’s technology press is that the changes are more evolutionary than revolutionary with the most outstanding features being the new 5.1-inch high definition (1080p) screen, a 16 megapixel scanner, a finger-print scanner and a heart rate scanner located next to the LED flash. The S5 is Samsung’s flagship model and buyers expect the best and latest. The heart of the smartphone is the powerful Snapdragon 800 2.5GHz quad-core processor. The skin though is still the same in plastic (and not metal as some had hoped for) and in terms of looks, it is still similar to the S4 with its rounded corners, the main differentiating feature being the back of the phone having a rubber indented case which is supposed to make it easier to hold. The back case can be replaced in various colours. Phone security is enhanced thanks to the new finger print scanner (first introduced by iPhone) which will be welcomed as it unlocks the phone and open its use for mobile payments. It was reported that...
