Arthritis is a common condition characterized by joint pain and inflammation. If you are suffering from arthritis, there are several ways by which you can relieve the pain it causes. A popular option is by applying an arthritic pain relief cream. Since most arthritis creams available in the market are topical, they often produce instant results. However, with the variety of "pain relief cream" s in the market, each with its own active painkilling ingredient, choosing one can be tough. Below are some of the most common components of pain relief creams available today: SalicylateOne of the most popular components of arthritic pain creams is salicylate, an ingredient found in aspirin. Salicylate can enter the bloodstream and produce the same effects as an orally ingested aspirin. Although salicylate-based creams are effective, they should be avoided by anyone taking blood-thinning medicines or is allergic to aspirin. NSAIDNonsteriodal anti-inflammatory drugs are also common ingredients found in pain relief creams, particularly those that target athletes as their main consumers. NSAID-based pain relief creams are available only through prescription since their active ingredients may cause side effects. As it is, if you are thinking of using an NSAID-based pain relief cream, talk to your doctor first. CapsaicinCapsaicin is a popular ingredients in most natural pain relief creams. An ingredient found in chili peppers, capsaicin works by ridding the nerve cells of pain-inducing Substance P. Pain relief creams with capsaicin work best when applied on the knees, fingers, and elbows. Although highly effective in soothing joint pain caused by arthritis, capsaicin-based creams can irritate and cause burining sensations in the eye and mouth areas. Thus, it is essential that you wash your hands properly after applying capsaicin creams. If the cream is applied to your hands, wearing mittens or gloves are strongly recommended. Alternatively, you can wait for 30 minutes or so until the cream is fully absorbed before washing your hands. Applying capsaicin creams to broken skin or using a heat pad after is a no-no. Breastfeeding mothers and those allergic to chilies are also advised to avoid using capsaicin creams. Emu OilCreams that use emu oil as their active ingredients are usually pricier since authentic emu oils are imported from Australia. Creams with emu oil are very effective against joint pain with no severe side effects. Emu oil creams get absorbed easily, thus, providing quick relief. Eucalyptus Oil or MentholAside from heat, cold therapy also works well against joint pain. Using creams with menthol or eucalyptus oils as active ingredients is a convenient way of providing your joints with a cooling sensation. Eucalyptus oil or menthol-based creams works well for mild arthritic pain but they must be applied at frequent intervals. Like capsaicin, these creams must not be used near the eyes or mouth. There are different pain relief creams for arthritis and choosing one that best suits your needs and lifestyle is essential in ensuring maximum efficiency. Take note of the advantages and disadvantages of each active ingredient to find out which is the best one for you.
Aw those where the days, you could go outside youre door and breathe in to your hearts content and it wouldnt cost a penny! O.K I know Im being a bit over the top here, but can I ask you would you pay for fresh air?A couple of years ago youd never have thought of going into a shop to buy a bottle of water, if you said it to people back then that you were thinking of selling water in your shop youd have been told that you were crazy and who was going to buy water when all you had to do was stick your head under the tap for free!But times have change and attitudes have changed. With the great advances weve made with new technology unfortunately we also have produced a lot of waste products and gases. The way we live nowadays it seems harder to find somewhere you can go to get a breath of fresh air, you watch the footage on TV of people commuting through smog or in some of the oriental countries where all you can see is cyclists traveling around with what looks like doctors masks on their faces.So what are you to do?... O.k. you could travel to mountain top get some there but this option isnt available to everyone and it would also be a bit time consuming if you could do it a couple of times a week but, what about the average Joe.Well your problems is solved if you live in Columbus in the U.S (although they are popping up all over the place), you can now try out an oxygen bar where you can sit and have a cup of tea and put on a mask and breath in pure oxygen. The bar (no alcohol is served) is supposed to be doing really well. Its clients use it to help relieve headaches and the local hockey team uses it before their matches for an added energy.It may seem a bit crazy to some of you, the thought of people paying for air but then they said that about bottled water and look what happened there.
Smelly feet can cannot only be an embarrassment but can seriously damage the self esteem. There are many people, especially guys, who have to deal with this problem every day, and also are the victims of numerous medicines that didnt help. To help them I wrote this article hopping to at least make them understand what is causing this problem and how to prevent it. So here it is.Smelly feet, also known as bromohydrosis, are the result of the interaction between perspiration and the bacteria that lurk in you shoes and socks. The foot and hands contain the most sweat glands than any other part of the body ( about 3000 glands per square inch). Inside the shoe the temperature reaches sometimes 102 F. So this temperature combined with the moisture generated by the sweat glands constitute the perfect environment and a fertile breeding ground for the bacteria responsible for your smelly feet.The bacteria that are often found in foot odor are usually corynebacterium and micrococcus species. They produce the isovaleric acid which is main substance responsible for the smelly feet. So, successful treatment of smelly feet depends on eliminating the organisms. Smelly feet can also be caused by an inherited condition called hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, which primarily affects males. Stress, fluid intake and hormonal changes also can increase the amount of perspiration your body produces.The bacteria that are often found in foot odor are usually corynebacterium and micrococcus species Successful treatment of smelly feet depends on eliminating these organisms.Preventing smelly feet.Smelly feet generally can be controlled with a few preventive measures. The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society recommends that you:- maintain a good feet hygiene this way you keep the bacteria population to a minimum level.- Change your socks and shoes at least once per day.- Bathe your feet daily in warm water the dry them well.- Dust your feet frequently with a non medicated baby powder or foot powder.- Look for fungal infections between you toes and on the bottom of your feet and if you spot redness and dry skin get treatment.- Wear thick, soft socks made from cotton to absorb the moisture away from the feet and under dont wear under any circumstances nylon socks.- Let your feet breath by wearing leather shoes and dont wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row.( let your shoes to wear out at least 24 hours)You must remember that these measures are mostly preventive and not curative and if you still have smelly feet it is time for you to visit a doctor and get an professional opinion.
