Okay, folks.  I’ve seen one too many adolescents in the ED for the month of May already!  Stress from end of school testing?  No.  Stress from too much going on?  No.  Suicidal?  No and almost.  Surprisingly, it is directly related to bullying!!  Yes!  Kids are being picked on, hit, harassed, threatened at schools not only in our little corner of the state, but across the state as well.  Coincidentally, I watched a documentary on this very subject just last week.  Sadly, many victims are attempting or completing suicide.  Self cutting is on the rise along with the bullying.  Some victims tell me they have not told an adult until now because they were afraid.  Kids should not have to live this way!!  Okay, so I’m from the Leave it to Beaver generation.  But, still, no one should be afraid to go to school because of bullies.  Bullying is not a new subject by any means.

When I was 12 and had just moved to NC, I was bullied by a group of girls.  I was already shy, so this didn’t help at all!  I found myself surrounded by a circle of girls who took turns pushing me back and forth.  There was no one to help because I was new.  Later, someone locked me in my locker,  which “back then” was full size.  The teacher came out and found me halfway through class.  I didn’t tell anyone.  I was ashamed, embarrassed and afraid.  I stayed home for the next few days because I was sick.  Sick with fear.  For the next 2 years, I carried a small New Testament with me to school and prayed everyday that God would see to it that I go home in one piece with no bodily harm.  So, what’s the difference?
The bullying I experienced was racially related as were many problems during the early 70’s.  Sure it was bad, but the depth of hatred and anger seems to be greater now that it was then.  There seems to be absolute malice and terror.  Instead of pushing and shoving, or locking one in a locker, kids are being threatened in vicious ways that edge toward greater violence.  And the kids I have seen lately have been bullied for being good students and talented individuals.  I tell them the bullying says more about the bully than the victim. 

True, yes, but that doesn’t ease the pain and suffering from being bullied.

In one school, the victim was further bullied and threatened after telling an adult because the school authorities got involved.  The result was, someone else did the bullying instead.  In another school, the authorities chalked it up to “kids being kids.”   In yet another, the response was, “School will be over in another month.  Just stick it out.”  The lack of assistance from adults is further pain for the victim.  If adults can’t stop kids, who can?  Or who WILL?  This is frightening stuff to be sure.
Bullies and their victims are not limited socioeconomically.  They are rich, poor, all races, all sizes.  I don’t have an answer to this problem.  Wish I did.  But, hopefully, by increasing awareness and conversations about bullying, this issue will eventually be addressed more actively.  Being an adolescent is hard enough!!  Please spread the word.  Take action.

Nailing Things Home

I bite my nails in a way that is truly offensive. Truth be told, I come by it honestly. My mother bites her nails as well. I can remember as a child her perfect long finger, with elegant fingernails polished to perfection. She sat in the front of the 1975 Oldsmobile cutlass while my father drove. She chewed on her cuticles as if she was manicurist on a mission.

And now more than 30 years later, I chew my hands with a vengeance. It used to be a nervous habit and now it is just routine. I have tried everything. I have tried bitter nail polish and gloves, acrylic overlays and weekly manicure. I have bitten through it all like a fanatical rodent.

My nails have born the brunt of every nail fad known to women. In the 1980’s I wore Lee Press on Nails. They were plastic nails that were self-adhesive and pre-polished. They came in a variety of colours and sizes and promised in a half an hour to transform any hands into movie stars.

My Press On’s were not available in Canada and were thus bought typically on trips to the United States with my family. We drove from Winnipeg, Manitoba to Fargo, North Dakota (it was 1983- there was little else to do for fun) and there in a Target I was introduced to the fabulous world of fake nails. I could bite my fingers to my heart’s content and within 30 minutes in the safety of my hotel room, my nails could instantly be polished and perfect again.

There I sat in the Holiday Inn in Fargo packet of LEE PRESS ON’s in hand anticipating the magic. I looked down at my stubby, bitten nails and imagined my long perfectly polished future.

Make no mistake; my future was perfectly polished, but lasted only 12-14 hours. The nails rarely stayed on for longer than THAT day and were no match for the chlorine content at the Holiday Inn pool. I loved my nails, but I loved the water slide even more.

In the 1990’s I fell victim to the craze of the Acrylic French Manicure. These fake nails are now popular among the adult film industry stars and Intensive Care Nurses in Alberta. This is not an association but merely an observation.

I spent most of my 20’s in the hands of various women of Vietnamese descent as they painted my nail beds with acrylic based products in pink and white in order to mimic a French manicure. They then took what can only be described as miniature bench saw to may nails and sculpted them into my own Sally Hansen advertisement.
My chewed up nail stubs were replaced by perfect long nail beds that smelled like acetone and looked like a dream. I was on a contact high from the chemical fumes and deliriously happy from the visual effects.

But when the look and the fumes wore off, my sober self bit through the acrylic and the pain like a beaver from hell. Ten days and ten fingers later and I was back where I started.

Now another decade has passed. CHANEL comes out with a new nail polish every season that is the “must have” of the moment. Each winter I paint my nails a dark blue or black or red and promise to stop biting. I last a week perhaps two or three and the polish is gnawed upon over and over again. I make resolution after resolution and each one is broken as I bite back my promises… one finger at a time.

In spring I paint my nails a pale pink or pearl or nude colour and at $20 per bottle; the promise is renewed. I have paid for Karl Lagerfeld’s car with the amount of CHANEL nail polish that has been purchased in an attempt to banish my bad habit and to no avail.

A study published in 1971 in the Journal Of Child Development and Neurology showed that there may be a genetic component to nail biting. According to the authors, nail biting is a frequent habit in children. It usually appears between 4 and 6 years of age. About 35% of children bite their until puberty when the rates increase to 40-45% of adolescents. The majority of nail-biters give up the habit during their teens and it is only occasionally observed in adults.

The habit is markedly familial. In a large percentage of cases a history of nail biting during childhood by one or both of the parents can be obtained. It has been suggested that the children learn to bite the nails by imitating the parents, but this cannot be the case since parents usually stop the habit before their children are born.

The study in the journal looked at identical and fraternal twins and found that identical twins were twice as concordant for the habit of nail biting (both twins biting) compared to fraternal twins. In severe nail biters, identical twins were more than four times more likely to be concordant for the habit than fraternal twins.

This points to more than a learned behaviour because logic would argue that fraternal twins would both learn the same behaviour.

Spring has come once again. I have bought CHANEL’s now sold out colour (it is a puke brown but apparently fabulous) and have piled on the paint and the promises once more. My genetics will conspire against me as soon as I finish typing and I will stare at my fingernails with wanton abandonment in preparation for my next chew….

And now, I only have my mother to blame….

Of Alternative Medicine For Cancer with Thoughtful Use

of-alternative-medicine-for-cancer-with-thoughtful-useToday the standard for disease involve surgery, chemotherapy and radiation . For any individual who has endured these dibilitating medications a sincere quest for an option prescription for disease to treat the indications and increment the general prosperity is however characteristic.

Luckily modernmedicine has advanced far in the treatment and administration of all types of malignancy. Despite the fact that our insight has expanded regardless we have far to go before all growths can be cured. Lamentably, malignancy is going up against new structures and is being analyzed at a more prominent recurrence everywhere throughout the world.

Modern medicine still does not provide much hope for those diagnosed with terminal cancer, nor is there much progress in discovering the best means of cancer prevention. Many questions are being asked if our modern agricultural processes and food manufacturing procedures combined with global polution are infact a major cause for the increase in the diagnosis of cancer cases throughout the world.

Many of us believe the alternative medicine for cancer can best be found in altering our diets and to include other herbal remedies that are known to assist in regeneration of the body as well as in pain management giving sufferers a mor holistic approach to both prevention and the cure of cancer.

Using Alternative Medicine To Prevent Cancer.

It is common knowledge that adequate fiber content in your food helps to prevent cancers of the digestive system. Holistic nutrition using coarse grain and unrefined flour are therefore viewed as a form of alternative medicine for cancer preventiont. Other traditional medicine also has dietary supplements based on the husks of cereals which help to keep bowel movement regular. It is beneficial to follow the principles of alternative medicine for cancer prevention particularly when malignancies of the colon and surrounding areas are likely.

Similarly, there are herbal extracts available which help cancerous lesions developing in the liver. The vitamins, minerals, enzymes and elements found in fresh organic fruits and vegetables are known to be the building blocks and the repair kit of the human body It is therefore worthwhile to use alternative medicine for cancer management of vital organs in a pro-active way.

Alternative Medicine for Cancer Management near Termination

The goal of preventing every case of cancer from reaching a stage where it can no longer be successfully treated has not yet been reached, nor is it 100% curable.. Even though most people are now aware of the causes of cancer and that early diagnosis is easier to obtain, many patients may have to spend considerable periods of time in the progressively deteriorating terminal stages of this fatal illness.

Luckily more and more people are beginning to see that essential nutrition and pain management are key factors to make the final days of a terminally ill patient as comfortable as possible. Alternative medicine for cancer has important applications in this tragic context. Nutrition powders and fluid extracts can be prescribed for patients who are too unwell to enjoy normal meals, while topical preparations can be used with modern drugs to deal with distressing pain.

Although unsubstantiated, there are many claims of terminally ill patients taking alternative medicine for cancer for containment or reversal purposes and exceeding the prognoses for their malignant conditions by long periods of time by using of alternative medicine for cancer. This is an option a patient and their relatives may like to try when modern methods offer no further hope

Health Insurance Options

The PPO, (or Preferred Provider Organization), and HMO, (or Health Maintenance Organizations), belong to a network of physicians to choose from. Only the HMO requires you to choose one of their doctors as your Primary Care Physician (PCP). With the PPO you have more freedom to choose your doctor, but by using one “out-of-network” will raise the co-payments.

The premiums are higher for the PPO, making the HMO the least expensive. The POS is a combo of the two.

Another option is an HDHP, or High Deductible Health Plan. This may not seem like a low cost option, but after you pay the annual high deductible, your benefits will kick in. Plus, the premiums are much lower than average from the beginning. After enrolling in this type plan you qualify for an HSA, or Health Savings Account, which lets you to save up tax-free money for medical expenses – such as alternative healing treatments/procedures, eye care and chiropractor therapies. The HSA also allows you withdraw the money accumulated for other purposes once you reach retirement age.

Any form of coconut oil (excluding the hydrogenated one) can be good for curing acne. But in case you would like know the best one for acne cure, you should first know the major factors that contribute acne.

Most individuals appear to know just one thing, oily skin type is more prone to acne. The fact is, it’s only one cause of acne. Excessive toxic accumulation and overgrowth of certain bacteria result in acne as well. You may know about bacteria, however you might not realize that toxins inside your body could result in acne too.

That being said, you must pick the kind of coconut oil which could help you the best in order to restrict the development of bacteria while eliminating toxins off your body.

For this, experts strongly suggest virgin coconut oil. Usually, it’s promoted as extra virgin. However they in reality mean the same type.

Coconut oil normally carries the lauric acid, capric acid, myristic acid and caprylic acid. Among these fatty complexes, lauric acid can be considered as the most powerful. And as virgin coconut oil has the maximum proportion of lauric acid (nearly 50 percent), it obviously is the greatest type in order to control acne germs and other local germs which might also cause acne.

Talking about getting rid of toxins, mid chain fatty acids such as lauric, capric and caprylic acids, along with short chain fatty acid such as caproic acid makes the coconut oil detoxifying. The good news is virgin coconut oil has all of them. But, the fractionated or refined type might include 1 or 2 types of these fatty acids that are obviously less cleansing.
Taking into account the above facts, virgin coconut oil can be the best for acne cure.

But you’ve to prepare yourself for a more damaging acne breakout.

As it is more cleansing as compared to any other forms, virgin coconut oil has a tendency to draw additional toxins up towards your skin surface and thus, could cause more pimples breakout while curing your acne.

Naturally, if you’ve less toxin buildup inside the body and within your skin, then probably your acne will settle in nicely in 3-4 days after the use of virgin oil without resulting in any further breakout. However if you’ve greater toxins stored inside, you’ll most likely encounter the remedial disaster, i.e., your acne would get severe before getting better using this oil.

Home Hair Coloring – Tip for Home Hair Coloring

Hair color that contains ammonia and peroxide are very harsh on your hair. Make sure your hair is in the best possible condition before treating your hair with these chemicals.

Tools for Home Hair Coloring

For home hair coloring you will need some of the following tools. Some of these tools may have been included with your home hair color kit.

  • A glass or plastic bowl for mixing hair color. Avoid metal bowl because metal interacts with the chemicals in the hair dye and the result you get may be surprising.
  • Vinyl gloves. Most home hair coloring kit comes with plastic gloves. But some kit includes plastic gloves that are very large. These gloves tend to fold while you use them, trapping hair dye on your hand. To make home hair coloring easier, you need plastic gloves that fit snugly around your hand. Vinyl gloves can be easily purchased at the drug store. If you color at home often, a box of professional gloves is worth the investment.
  • A small brush to touch up roots
  • A rat tail comb to lift and section your hair.
  • Hair clips to hold up some section of the hair while you work on other section.
  • A timer or alarm clock to make sure you leave the color on for the amount of time required by your home hair color kit.
  • A button down shirt preferably without a collar. A button down shirt is easier to take off than a shirt that goes over your head.
  • An old towel that you don’t care if it get stained to wipe off excess color.

If you home color your hair often, for convenience, consider making the items listed above a part of your coloring basket.

To test your new hair color, take about ½ inch wide section of your hair from the nape of your neck (It’s important to do the hair strand test on this section of your hair because it’s where you can see and others can’t). Color it from roots to end. Leave the hair color on for the amount of time required by your home hair color kit. Rinse it and dry it thoroughly to make sure it’s the color you want and check for breakage and damage.

Home Hair Color – The Best Way to Home Color Hair

Hair coloring works best when your hair is dry and not freshly washed. Put on an old button down shirt and place a towel around your shoulder. Mix the formula. Apply the hair color to your hair in sections starting with the tops, then sides, then back, following the instruction on your home hair coloring kit. Also, as you go from sections to sections, make sure to saturate your hair evenly.

Avoid applying the hair color directly onto your scalp. And to avoid uneven color, consider getting some help applying hair color to the back of your head and area where you can’t see or reach. After you have finished applying the color, comb your hair a few times to make sure that the color is distributed evenly.

While coloring your hair, the last thing you want is to realize that you don’t have enough solution to properly saturate and distribute the hair color. If you have long hair (more than 14 inches long), and are home hair coloring, consider buying two boxes of hair dye.
