“What There is to Know About Diet Pills?”

According to manufacturers, diet pills use natural ingredients capable of prolonging life and containing alcohol used in medication or flavoring. One things for sure, never take diet pills as substitute for cutting calories without the doctors recommendation. There are simple but important steps to be followed when taking diet pills:

1.Never crush diet pills to mix in drinks or soups. Take it whole with a full glass of water.
2.Diet pills causes a person to urinate more frequently due to its diuretic effect. This could lead to dehydration, thus, causing complications. As a pre-caution, it is best to drink eight glasses of water everyday while on diet pills.
3.Take only the recommended dosage. Taking more than required will not help you lose weight but increase the risk of side effects.
4.Heartbeat should be less than 86 beats per minute. Stop taking the pills if it reaches 90 or higher that is why regular checking of pulse is a must.
5.Always follow the instructions set by the dietician and/or doctor and not only rely on whats enclosed in the box. Also diet pills will only work as expected if diet plan is being followed.
6.After three months, stop taking the diet pills. Common diet phenylpropanolamine is safe to use only up to sixteen weeks. Other studies show that it can cause health problems if taken under one month.

There are two kinds of diet pills; one is the prescription only diet pills and the over-the-counter diet pills.

Prescription Diet Pills – are drugs regulated by the Food and Drug Administration agency which side effects are monitored, maybe advertised and prescribed under certain dosages. The most popular of these is Xenical, which is licensed for long-term use. However, this too has its own side effects, diarrhea, oily and unexpected fecal discharge are just some. Therefore, users are advised to take a low fat diet plan.

While Over-the-Counter Diet Pills are categorized as food substitute and are unregulated. Beware that these diet pills are not Federal authorities tested and may cause serious side effects up to and including death.

Aside from a dietician, local pharmacists can also help in determining the pills that are safe and not for each persons case. Just be extra careful about the so-called natural or organic ingredients. Not everything that comes from a natural source is safe. One example is Ma Huang, which is a botanical source of ephedrine known as a stimulant and being studied for potential side effects.

Those who have or have a family history of prostate problems, thyroid disease, mental illness, high blood pressure, and heart problems should avoid taking diet supplements. The same applies to those whove had seizures or strokes. If someone is taking cold medicines, especially those with decongestants, diet pills should not be taken. Whether it be a prescription or an over-the-counter diet pill, the dangers are unvarying with other similar drugs which controls the brain to reduce appetite and includes chest pains, hair fall, fever, depression, and even impotence.

And as a general rule, dont ever try to take diet drugs if pregnancy is suspected. Persons that are allergic to sulfites and tartrazine should also avoid taking diet pills. And those who are under 18 years or over 60 years of age should consult their doctor first prior to taking any dietary drugs, especially if they rely on over-the-counter stimulants used as a replacement for increase exercise.

Plate Decoration Gone Healthy!

Plate Decoration Gone Healthy!

Plate Decoration Gone Healthy!
By Lena Sanchez

It hasn’t gone healthy it’s always been healthy just
ignored by the modern world!

One of the oldest herbs in the world and is now grown all
over the world is also one of the greatest toxin removal
systems around as well as illness and disease preventor
PARSLEY

And you thought it was just to decorate your plate. Not so,
next time the restaurant puts a sprig of parsley on your
dinner plate, eat it! Parsley is a much maligned herb!

Parsley originated in the Eastern Mediterranean region but
is now grown throughout the world. For more than 2,000
years, it has been known as a medicinal herb. The ancient
Greeks valued the seeds and roots of the plant for their
soothing, diuretic effect on those with kidney and bladder
ailments.

Today parsley is still used primarily as a diuretic.
In addition, it strengthens the digestive system and
helps alleviate stomach and liver problems.

In folk medicine, parsley was recommended for women who
have irregular menstrual periods. As a diuretic it may
also ease the bloating that some women experience
before their periods. In addition, parsley leaves are a
good source of many vitamins and minerals – including
iron, which is important for the proper formation of
red blood cells, potassium and vitamin C.

The Medieval German herbalist St Hildegard of Bingen
prescribed parsley wine to improve blood circulation. It was
believed to help heart conditions. To make his parsley wine,
combine 10 – 12 large sprigs of parsley with 1 quart of red or
white wine and 2 teaspoons of white-wine vinegar. Boil for
10 minutes then add 9 ounces of honey. Strain the mixture
and pour into bottles. I have not tried this, but it is said to
work well, according to many Take 1 Tbsp. Three times
a day, is said to keep the blood circulating.

This herb supplies important vitamins and minerals, for
instance, just cup of fresh parsley provides a third of
your daily vitamin C requirement. It’s high vitamin C and
A content also help fight cancer. Parsley ranks higher than
most vegetable in bistidine an amino acid that inhibits
tumors. In addition, parsley is an excellent source of
potassium, which is important in lowering blood pressure.
Also supplies folic acid, which helps prevent cardiovascular
disease. It also contains calcium, manganese and iron.

Parsley for Osteoporosis; Sometimes high doses of calcium
are taken in supplemental form, however this impairs the
body’s absorption of manganese which help build bone. But
parsley enhances manganese absorption, particularly when
it is eaten with foods containing copper and zinc, such as
shellfish and whole grains.

Is it any wonder that a Mediterranean diet is one of the known
healthy diets? The average Mediterranean inhabitant eats
lots of parsley in a lot of different dishes!

Tips:
* Parsley contains essential oils; the most important one,
apiole, is a kidney stimulant. Because these essential
oils can stimulate uterine contractions, pregnant women
should avoid eating large quantities of it. BUT, after the
baby is born, parsley can help tone the uterus and promote
lactation.
* Don’t cook parsley, because heat destroys its valuable
vitamins and minerals. To retain parsley’s flavor, chop
the herb just before using and add it to hot foods at the
last minute.
* Avoid dried parsley, it is far less tasty and healthful
than the fresh herb.
* Try the flat leaf variety, also called Italian parsley, It has
more nutrients and a better flavor than curly parsley.
* Add parsley to compliment a dish, such as potatoes,
smoked salmon, trout, poultry, pasta and vegetables.
* Freeze fresh parsley to save preparation time in the
kitchen. Wash, zip seal plastic bag. You can then remove
the amount you need with each recipe.
* To keep parsley fresh, sprinkle it with water, wrapping
it in paper towels and refrigerating it in a plastic bag.
Or place parsley stems in a glass of water, like a bunch
or flowers, and refrigerate.

This Healthy Parsley spread is great on crackers, for dip or on
wheat bread as a sandwich spread.
