“..The changes that occur to the cardiovascular system during exercise all have a common function: they allow the body to meet the increasing needs demanded from an increased workload on the body. Many components of the cardiovascular system work in tandem with one another to achieve this goal. Like a fine tuned machine, the components of the cardiovascular system are orchestrated by local mechanisms, as well as by the neural and endocrine systems, to supply the increase in demand. The role of the nervous and endocrine systems will be discussed in a later topic. To better understand the contribution of every mechanism, we will need to take a quick look at each in greater detail. The following physiologic factors perform a unique contribution to the overall goal of homeostasis. These will include:..”

Sweating

Sweat Is Cool humankinetics.com
“..Sweating does for humans what panting does for dogs, but sweating does it better. Sweating is an effective way to stay safely cool in hot environments. That simple fact explains why humans are better than most animals at being physically active in the heat for prolonged periods. Animals that do not sweat cannot pant fast enough to keep up with the heat production of exercise. In humans, when body temperature increases slightly above normal resting temperature (98.6 ℉, or 37 ℃), the hypothalamus in the brain senses the increase in temperature and signals the sympathetic nervous system to dilate blood vessels in the skin and activate sweat glands. (See figure 10.3.)..”

Why do we sweat.mp4

The Science of Sweat By Tim Newcomb Dec 7, 2016 popularmechanics.com
From nerves to exercise, this is sweat’s cool factor.
“..When your body starts to heat up, whether it’s because of exercise, work, or outside temperature, your brain reacts by releasing sweat from the more than 2.5 million eccrine glands spread out across nearly all of your body, pouring liquid through pores to lower your body temperature. But when sweat simply drips off you and hits the floor, it can’t lower your body temperature. To reap the cooling effect of sweat, though, that salty liquid must evaporate off the skin and turn into a gas, says William Byrnes, a sweat expert at the University of Colorado…”

Sweat isn’t triggered by heart rate or movement, but by receptors in the hypothalamus area of the brain. Individuals living in hot and humid environments will adapt to the weather, just as people aerobically trained will sweat more and sooner. The body welcomes “adaptions that help us with heat regulation,” Byrnes explains.

Because the stink of sweat doesn’t come from the odorless, colorless liquid the body produces in an effort to cool the skin, but rather from contact with bacteria present on the body, we have to combat it from all angles. With this bacteria concentrated in the armpit, applying a powerful deodorant to that specific area, instead of rubbing it all over, proves the most effective way to combat B.O…”

Shoes

Are You Wearing the Right Shoes For Your Workout? by Amber Long on October 27, 2015 acefitness.org
“..If you participate in a specific sport or activity more than two times per week, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) recommends wearing a sport-specific shoe. This means you might need different shoes for different activities. Here are some recommendations on shoes for popular fitness modes…

For those who do not log miles, replace shoes every six months if you work out most days, or every year if you exercise a couple of times per week. You can extend the life of your fitness shoes by using them only when you exercise. Purchase a casual pair of sneakers to jet around town. This will prevent wear and tear from standing or walking and allow you to look forward to lacing up for exercise.”

Proper Fit Explained: You Don’t Have a Shoe Size; You Have a Foot Size 12 November 2011 naturalrunningcenter.com
“..A proper fit accounts for the natural expansion of the foot upon ground contact. Excess waste is eliminated, along with everything that inhibits your foot’s natural motion. So your foot is free to move and work the way nature intended it to; the way of its own barefoot motion. Call it toe wiggle freedom.

Yet, with sizing, most get it wrong

First, abandon the notion that you have a shoe size. Instead you have a foot size. Shoes are made all over the world and apply different shapes and standards. If you measure your foot seated with a traditional measuring device like a Brannock Device and base your size on that you will likely be off by 1-2 sizes when applied to a running or hiking shoe. One shoe size is only 1/3 an inch.

Here’s why most sizes are too small:

When a load is applied to a foot by running or with a pack weight your foot will spread in length by up to half an inch

You need at least an 1/8 inch or more space on heel and toe for any sock.

You want 1/3 to 1/2 an inch in front of your big toe to allow room for loading and splay

Your foot will splay 15 percent in width under load.

Your foot is widest at the toes and unfortunately most shoes are not shaped this way.

Tips on sizing.

At Two Rivers Treads, we never had a customer return shoes because they too were too big.

Do not assume you are the same size as a previous shoe.

Take your time and try several shoes on, preferably at the end of the day. Go run in them. Do not try them on sitting…”

Foods that make your sweat smell bodyandsoul.com.au
“..
Humans have two types of sweat glands – eccrine glands and apocrine glands.

Eccrine glands control body temperature and are concentrated on our foreheads, underarms, soles and palms. They release sweat with little odour, mostly composed of water, salt and other trace minerals such as calcium and potassium.

Apocrine glands are found mostly around the armpits, lower abdomen and genitals. Their purpose is to excrete wastes (mostly fats and proteins) from the body. Although this sweat also has little odour itself, bacteria on the skin feed on it and produce malodorous waste products such as androstenes and isovaleric acid. The process takes about 20 minutes.

Studies show that women find fresh male sweat reasonably pleasant, but the chemical compounds that result from its breakdown highly unpleasant…”

Stress

The General Adaptation Syndrome: Applications for Sports Training sports-training-adviser.com
“..In the 1930s, Hans Selye first described the General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS) as the predictable way in which the body restores itself to balance, or homeostasis, in response to stress. … Around the same time exercise physiologists began exploring adaptations taking place due to different forms of training stresses…

The General Adaptation Syndrome has three distinct stages:

The Alarm Stage, or alarm reaction stage, is the initial response when stress is first recognized. This fight or flight response is a very quick hormonal response that served to help animals survive in the face of danger since ancient times.

We might respond to narrowly missing a serious car accident in the same way. Our bodies immediately release hormones, including cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline to provide instant energy. Adrenaline immediately raises the blood pressure and heart rate. When the stress is removed, the body returns to normal state of homeostasis.

The Resistance Stage, or adaptation stage, occurs if the stress continues or recurs for a period of time. In this stage, the body makes adjustments in its structures or enzyme levels to give it added protection against this specific type of stress. Rest must occur in order for recovery and rebuilding to take place.

The type of training the athlete performs determines the type of protein synthesized during recovery. This is the reason for “specificity” of the adaptive response to training. A speed training session will mobilize the energy, building projects and immune responses in the cells and tissues involved in producing speed. The stimulation of these reserves during a speed training session will dictate the type of structural changes during recovery to make the cell stronger for the next speed training session.

Mobilization of the immune system strengthens the defense capacity of the body and stimulates the repair process by dismantling and rebuilding damaged cells. The immune system plays a critical role in the outcome of the response to training.

The Exhaustion Stage occurs when long-term stress is not removed. At this point the athlete becomes fatigued and irritable. The body runs out of reserve energy and stress takes its toll on the athlete’s mental, physical, and emotional abilities. When excessive long-term stress persists, as in the case of overtraining, the athlete is unable to function and is forced to take time for recovery….”

The Body’s Fuel Sources

This is an excerpt from Endurance Sports Nutrition, Third Edition by Suzanne Girard Eberle.

The Body’s Fuel Sources

Our ability to run, bicycle, ski, swim, and row hinges on the capacity of the body to extract energy from ingested food. As potential fuel sources, the carbohydrate, fat, and protein in the foods that you eat follow different metabolic paths in the body, but they all ultimately yield water, carbon dioxide, and a chemical energy called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Think of ATP molecules as high-energy compounds or batteries that store energy. Anytime you need energy—to breathe, to tie your shoes, or to cycle 100 miles (160 km)—your body uses ATP molecules. ATP, in fact, is the only molecule able to provide energy to muscle fibers to power muscle contractions. Creatine phosphate (CP), like ATP, is also stored in small amounts within cells. It’s another high-energy compound that can be rapidly mobilized to help fuel short, explosive efforts. To sustain physical activity, however, cells must constantly replenish both CP and ATP.

Our daily food choices resupply the potential energy, or fuel, that the body requires to continue to function normally. This energy takes three forms: carbohydrate, fat, and protein. (See table 2.1, Estimated Energy Stores in Humans.) The body can store some of these fuels in a form that offers muscles an immediate source of energy. Carbohydrates, such as sugar and starch, for example, are readily broken down into glucose, the body’s principal energy source. Glucose can be used immediately as fuel, or can be sent to the liver and muscles and stored as glycogen. During exercise, muscle glycogen is converted back into glucose, which only the muscle fibers can use as fuel. The liver converts its glycogen back into glucose, too; however, it’s released directly into the bloodstream to maintain your blood sugar (blood glucose) level. During exercise, your muscles pick up some of this glucose and use it in addition to their own private glycogen stores. Blood glucose also serves as the most significant source of energy for the brain, both at rest and during exercise. The body constantly uses and replenishes its glycogen stores. The carbohydrate content of your diet and the type and amount of training that you undertake influence the size of your glycogen stores…”

How Much Water Do You Really Need? Mauro Di Pasquale July 06, 2017 • 2 min read bodybuilding.com
“..So How Much Water Should You Drink

My recommendation is to drink when you’re thirsty, and if you think you should be drinking more, don’t overdo it. As far as drinking water in and around exercise, I’ve outlined a few simple guidelines that will make sure you’re well hydrated without hitting any extremes.

Within an hour or so of training, drink a few glasses of water so you start well hydrated. While training you can drink a glass or so of water for every 15 minutes you train, especially if you’re sweating it out.

However, even during times of heavy sweating don’t take in more than a quart and half of water per hour. As far as how much your daily intake of water should be, The American College of Sports Medicine that 12 quarts is the maximum amount to drink in a 24-hour period…”

How much water should you drink during a workout? By Cosmopolitan Apr 9, 2014 cosmopolitan.com

No need to drink whilst exercising (unless it’s very warm), but re-hydrate with water afterwards.

Exercise from 30-60 minutes
As above, then re-hydrate post-training with a drink containing both water and CHO.

Exercise 1-3 hours
Take a sports drink with you which combines water and CHO. Sip regularly throughout the session – aim for 30-60g CHO per hour. Continue to use the same drink post-training.

Exercise 3hrs +
Choose a sports drink which combines water, CHO and some sodium/salts. Sip regularly, taking on 30-60g CHO per hour and continue to drink post-training.

Check your hydration levels
There are two effective ways to check hydration levels when exercising.

Weigh yourself both pre and post a session to see how much weight has reduced. A 1kg weight loss equates to around 1 litre of fluid and you should aim to restore levels to your original weight post-training. And check your urine colour: the darker it is, the more dehydrated you are (although if you are taking single nutrient supplements these can affect urine colour eg B vitamins can turn urine fluorescent yellow)…”

Training Movements, Not Muscles Pete McCall by Pete McCall on November 14, 2013 acefitness.org
“..Focusing on just one body part at a time would be an effective way to exercise if that was how the human body was designed to function. Human movement, however, is not a series of isolated joint actions. If you have ever watched the process of a baby learning how to roll over, crawl and eventually walk, then you have seen everything you need to know about human movement. The human body is designed to be in constant motion with all joints and muscles working together to walk and move in an upright position.

Walking, or the gait cycle, is a series of coordinated movements. The foundational patterns that comprise the gait cycle are:

1. Squatting (when both feet are on the ground) [e.g. sitting down in a chair]
2. Lunging (as one leg is planted and the other leg is swinging) [e.g. picking up something off the floor]
3. Pushing (as one arm swings forward) [ eg. pushing a heavy door]
4. Pulling (as the other arm swings backwards) [eg. opening a car door or picking up a child]
5. Rotating (when the trunk and pelvis counter rotate during leg and arm movement). [e.g. picking up something from left side at the dinner table with right hand and passing it to someone to your right)

Following a movement-based exercise program based on these patterns means that you are using all of your muscles at the same time, which can be more effective for burning calories while also training the body for how it is designed to move…”

How Common Medications May Affect Your Clients’ Exercise Programs By Lance C. Dalleck, Ph.D. acefitness.org
Prevalence of Prescribed Therapeutic Drugs


Current trends show that Americans are living longer, while the number of individuals living with chronic diseases continues to increase. In the past 100 years, life expectancy at birth in the U.S. increased from less than 50 years to more than 76 years. The U.S. Census Bureau has projected that by 2030, the number of adults 65 years of age and older will be approximately 70 million. Approximately 80 percent of individuals aged 65 years or older are living with at least one chronic health problem, and another 50 percent are living with two. Management of these chronic conditions involves numerous strategies including both lifestyle interventions (e.g., increased exercise and healthy eating) and the prescription of therapeutic drugs. Not surprisingly, the percentage of American adults taking medications for common chronic conditions (e.g., high cholesterol and/or hypertension) increases with age (Figure 1)….

2. ACE INHIBITORS

3. DIURETICS

….Modifications Required in the Exercise Program

Encourage your clients taking diuretics to unfailingly perform a gradual cool-down after all exercise sessions. It’s also a good idea to suggest your clients perform a daily weight check to ensure that the prescribed dosage of diuretic is continuing to have the desired effect (i.e., increased urine excretion-lowered plasma volume-reduced blood pressure). A sudden change in weight of a few pounds can help alert clients that something may be amiss and that they should get in touch with their physician.”

5. ORAL HYPOGLYCEMICS

…Modifications Required in the Exercise Program

The most important program modification for clients taking oral hypoglycemics is frequent monitoring of blood glucose values. Initially, this should include checking levels pre-exercise, at the mid-point of exercise and post-exercise. Once it has been established how much blood glucose values typically drop for a usual exercise session, and provided these changes in glucose levels are within an acceptable range, less-frequent monitoring will be required. It should be noted that it is not your responsibility to check blood glucose values. Rather, the client should bring his or her own glucometer and glucose strips, which are prescribed by a physician or endocrinologist….”

Measurable. A goal to “lose weight” is not enough. How will you track your progress and how you will know when you have reached your goal? Making your goal measurable means adding a number.

Attainable. Before you can add a number, you have to know how high or low you want to go. It’s good to ‘shoot for the stars’, but don’t be too extreme. Likewise, a goal that is too easy is also not very motivating. Only you know your limits.
Let’s take our goal above. What percentage is attainable for you? Research suggests that a 5-10% weight loss is attainable for most overweight people.

A measurable, attainable goal could be, “I will lose 7% of my body weight.”

Relevant. Set goals that are important to where you are in your life right now. Don’t set a goal that someone else is pressuring you to attain-that isn’t very motivating.
Examine our goal so far. Does it seem relevant to you? If so, let’s keep going. If you are not concerned about weight loss or this is not a good time in your life to focus on that, choose something that IS motivating to you.

Time-bound. Include an end-point. Knowing that you have a deadline motivates you to get started.
Since healthy weight loss is about 1-2 pounds per week, set your deadline accordingly. For our example we can use 3 months. “I will lose 7% of my body weight in 3 months.”

Applying Risk Classification as a Fitness Professional
Christopher Gagliardi by Christopher Gagliardi
on May 10, 2017 acefitness.org
“…Risk classification is determined based on the presence or absence of a known cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, or metabolic disease or the presence or absence of symptoms of these diseases (see “Signs and Symptoms” below). ..

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Risk Stratification Criteria:

For each positive risk factor, add a +1.

For HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) there is an opportunity to take away a risk (-1) if the level is high (≥60 mg/dL).

Client Age: Male ≥45, Female ≥ 55
Family History: Myocardial infarction (heart attack), coronary revascularization (bypass surgery), or sudden death for the client’s male first-degree relative who is younger than 55 years old or female first-degree relative who is younger than 65 years old; first-degree relatives include parents, siblings, and offspring
Cigarette smoking: Current cigarette smoker or quit within the previous six months, or exposure to secondhand smoke
Sedentary lifestyle: Does not participate in at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on at least three days/week for at least three months (remember this by thinking of the 3’s—30 minutes, for 3 days, for 3 months)
Obesity: Client has a BMI ≥30 kg/m2
Hypertension: Blood pressure ≥140/90 mmHg or currently on antihypertensive medications; both numbers do not have to be above the defining criteria for a + 1 in this category; if either the systolic reading is ≥ 140 mmHg or the diastolic number is ≥ 90 mmHg, the client would get a +1 in this category
Cholesterol: Total cholesterol should only be used if it is the only value given; if using total, ≥200 mg/dL is considered a risk (+1)
If you are given LDL and HDL cholesterol, use these values only:
LDL (bad cholesterol) ≥130 mg/dL is a risk (+1)
HDL (good cholesterol, you want lots) <40 mg/dL is a risk (+1)
HDL (good cholesterol) ≥60 mg/dL is good, allowing an individual to take a risk away (-1)
PreDiabetes: Fasting glucose ≥100 mg/dL is a risk (+1)

The risks are then totaled and the client is classified in one of the risk categories:.."

Low risk = Asymptomatic and < 2 risk factors
Moderate risk = Asymptomatic ≥ 2 risk factors
High risk = Symptomatic (see signs and symptoms below) or if the client has a known cardiac, pulmonary, renal, or metabolic disease

What Is a Realistic BMI for Someone Athletic?
by MICHELLE MATTE Last Updated: Sep 11, 2017 livestrong.com
“…
Misclassified

Kinesiology professor Sue Beckham, PhD of the University of Texas at Arlington, asserts that BMI is not useful in assessing athletic muscular individuals and is not a good indicator of changes in body composition. A 2007 study of male and female college athletes published in “Medicine and Science in Sports and Medicine” concluded that BMI incorrectly classifies athletes with normal body fat as overweight and that separate standards should be established for athletic populations.
BMI versus FFM

Your fat free mass, or FFM, includes your muscles, bones, connective tissue and other not-fat components of your body mass. According to exercise scientist Len Kravitz, PhD of the University of New Mexico, we all need a certain amount of fat to maintain good health, and women need more than men. When you subtract your FFM from your total body mass, you get your fat mass. Body composition is a measurement that compares your fat mass to your total body mass, expressed as percent body fat…”

What is the best way to measure and monitor intensity during exercise? Viktoria Brautigam by Viktoria Brautigam on June 01, 2011 .acefitness.org

“..Another way to monitor exercise intensity is by the Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE), or Borg scale. Using the Borg scale, with values from 0 to 20, can help you monitor your cardiovascular intensity. A rating of 7 corresponds to very, very light training intensity. A rating of 12 corresponds to moderate intensity. A rating of 17 corresponds to very hard intensity. A rating of 20 corresponds to maximum all-out intensity. Notice how, as your fitness increases, your exertion level at a previously difficult intensity starts to decrease. For example, running a 10 minute/mile pace used to be a level 16 exertion level for you. Two months after exercising regularly, you notice that the same 10 minute/mile pace is only an exertion level 12. RPE is a useful way of monitoring progress and keeping intensity appropriate. It is best used when cardiovascular training is more generalized and less specific. A person most likely to benefit from using the Borg RPE scale is following a general weight loss program…”

Perceived Exertion (Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion Scale) cdc.gov
“..Look at the rating scale below while you are engaging in an activity; it ranges from 6 to 20, where 6 means “no exertion at all” and 20 means “maximal exertion.” Choose the number from below that best describes your level of exertion. This will give you a good idea of the intensity level of your activity, and you can use this information to speed up or slow down your movements to reach your desired range…”

Macrocycles, Mesocycles and Microcycles: Understanding the 3 Cycles of Periodization
April 11, 2017 By Tyrone Holmes trainingpeaks.com
“…Periodization is the process of dividing an annual training plan into specific time blocks, where each block has a particular goal and provides your body with different types of stress. This allows you to create some hard training periods and some easier periods to facilitate recovery. Periodization also helps you develop different physiological abilities during various phases of training. For instance, during base training you focus on the development of aerobic and muscular endurance. During the intensity phase, this focus switches to lactate threshold and aerobic capacity (i.e., VO2 max), and as you enter the competition phase, greater emphasis is placed on boosting anaerobic capacity and neuromuscular power…”

Periodization and the Adult Client April Merritt by April Merritt on December 13, 2010 .acefitness.org
“..is is done through the use of micro (small) cycles, combined to form meso (intermediate size) cycles, which combine to form macro (biggest) cycles…

Periodization has two primary styles – linear and undulating.

Linear periodization is what we sometimes consider a more traditional resistance training program with gradually progressive increases. Within each micro cycle the training protocols are consistent, and then after each micro cycle the training variables are adjusted. Linear programs tend to be fairly rigid in their design. ..

Undulating periodization provides different training protocols during the micro cycles, in addition to changing the training variables after each micro cycle. Undulating programs tend to be less rigid in their design. :…”

Is R.I.C.E. All Wrong?
by Jim Thornton9 months ago life.spartan.com
“…It’s the most famous acronym in sports medicine, a household term as familiar to athletes as the physicians who treat them: RICE, for rest, ice, compression, and elevation…

As for why keeping injured tissues moving works better than immobilizing them, the exact mechanisms await further research. “We don’t understand everything about this yet,” Reinl concedes, “but we do know that stillness is the enemy. If you remain still, everything shrinks and atrophies—your muscles, bones, ligaments, everything.”…

So if RICE is no longer the answer, what’s a better strategy for expediting your return to the field of play? Reinl, for his part, believes the answer lies in a new acronym: ARITA—active recovery is the answer.

There are exceptions, of course—you may have no choice but to immobilize a limb, say, with a compound fracture. But for most garden-variety sports injuries, Reinl suggests resisting the urge to ice away your pain and plop down on the couch for days. Instead, let your pain level be your guide and keep on moving as much or as little as your mending body allows….”

Fitness record-keeping: not just a waste of trees
Published: 05-Nov-2014 Updated: 10-Nov-2015 fitness.org.au
“…By way of a general guide, records should at least cover the following:

Initial assessment (most of these should be captured on a Client Information form):

client details (such as name and address of the client and details of GP);
relevant medical history including medications administered and diagnostic results;

previously injured her knee and wishes to regain fitness;
the assessment undertaken and findings, both positive and negative; and
the fitness plan and estimated cost.

Each session:

the date of each training session;
the client’s response to the last session and update on medical history e.g. any intervening incidents;
information and advice provided to the client, particularly in relation to warnings as to relevant potential adverse outcomes, and the client’s consent to training;
any new assessment undertaken and the findings;

It is important that your clinical records are just that – clinical. Do not record personal or offensive comments about the client – as a rule of thumb, if you would not say it to their face, do not write it down. A personal or offensive comment will, at the very least, be embarrassing to you if the records are required to be produced in response to a complaint and may well adversely affect the outcome of that complaint.

How To Use an EpiPen

EpiPen Alternatives Exist, and They May be Cheaper
By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer | August 26, 2016 06:29pm ET livescience.com
“…But in recent years, the price of the EpiPen has increased dramatically, from $100 in 2007 to a current price of $600 for a two-pack, according to The New York Times. This price increase may limit access to the drug for people who need it, said U.S. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, who sent a letter this week to Mylan, the manufacturer of EpiPen, asking about the drug’s pricing. And although health insurance may cover the drug, people with certain insurance plans, such as high-deductible plans, may have to pay the full price, according to USA Today.

But there is a cheaper alternative to the EpiPen, called Adrenaclick, which can be found at Walmart and Sam’s Club for as little as $142 with a coupon, according to Consumer Reports. Adrenaclick provides the same medication, at the same doses, as the EpiPen, according to Adrenaclick’s website. There’s also a generic version of Adrenaclick, called “epinephrine injection, USP auto-injector.” (There is no generic version of the EpiPen.)

However, the method of administering Adrenaclick or its generic version is a little different from that for the EpiPen; for example, Adrenaclick has two caps that need to be removed, while EpiPen has only one cap.

Types of Shock

There are several different types of shock that are all severely life-threatening if left untreated. The following are the types of shock:

Hypovolemic shock: caused by great volume losses of blood and fluids
Cardiogenic shock: linked to heart problems
Anaphylactic shock: caused by a severe allergic reaction
Septic shock: linked to body infections
Neurogenic shock: caused by damage to the nervous system

First Aid Management for Shock

A person should call for emergency medical services immediately for symptoms of shock. While waiting for the paramedics, apply first aid to help avoid complications from developing. The following steps are generally recommended:

Call for emergency medical services immediately or have someone drive the victim to the nearest emergency room.
Check the victim’s circulation, airway and breathing. If necessary, initiate rescue breathing and CPR.
Constant check rate of breathing every five minutes even if the victim is capable of breathing on his or her own.
If the victim is conscious with no injury to the head, neck, spine or leg, lay the person down flatly with the feet elevated about 12 inches to increase circulation. The head should not be elevated. This is called the shock position. However, if there is a suspected head, neck, back, or leg injury, do not move the individual’s position unless there is danger in the immediate environment.
If there is bleeding, broken bones or other injuries, apply appropriate first aid.
Keep the person warm by covering with a blanket or coat. Loosen any tight clothing.
If there is no injury, turn the victim’s head to the side to avoid choking. If there is a suspected spinal injury, hold the person’s head, neck and back in a line and roll the victim to the side as a unit.

What Is The Common Cold: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Prognosis & Prevention lillingtonmedicalservices.org
“..Also known as viral rhinitis, the ordinary cold is among the most common infections among humans. It is primarily an upper respiratory track infection that can be caused by several virus families. The virus family that is responsible for up to 40 percent of colds is called rhino-virus and it has over 100 distinct virus types.

Since common cold symptoms can be caused by so many viruses, it has not been possible to develop a simple cure for the infection. The common cold should not be mistaken for influenza, which can make you ill for much longer, has more severe symptoms, and can result in hospitalization or lead to serious health problems including pneumonia…”

Therefore, rhinoviruses are viruses that infect the nose and upper respiratory system. The upper respiratory system includes the nose, mouth, the throat (or pharynx), and the sinuses. The lower respiratory system includes the trachea and the lungs. Upper respiratory infections (URIs) are the most common acute illnesses in the United States and the Western world. As internal body temperatures fall after exposure to cold air, so too does the immune system’s ability to beat back the rhinovirus that causes the common cold…

Turn on the hot shower in the bathroom and every few hours spend 10 to 20 minutes breathing the warm humid air in order to loosen up any mucus in the lungs or nose. This will help you clear out sputum accumulating in these tissue and you can cough and expel them. Mucus-producing tissue lines the mouth, nose, sinuses, throat, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract. Mucus acts as a protective blanket over these surfaces, preventing the tissue underneath from drying out. It is not uncommon for a cough to last 2 or 3 weeks after the nasal symptoms and sore throat are gone…”

Wash your hands often. This is probably the single best measure to prevent transmission of colds. Especially after shopping, going to the gym, or spending time in public places, hand washing is critical. Frequent hand washing can destroy viruses that you have acquired from touching surfaces used by other people. You can also carry a small tube of hand sanitizer or sanitizing hand wipes when visiting public places. Teach your children the importance of hand washing too.

Avoid touching your face, especially the nose, mouth, and eye areas, if you are around someone with a cold or have been touching surfaces in a public area. ..

Maintain a healthy lifestyle. While there isn’t direct evidence to show that eating well or exercising can prevent colds, maintenance of a healthy lifestyle, with adequate sleep, good nutrition and physical exercise can help ensure that your immune system is in good condition and ready to fight infection if it occurs…”

‘“Yo! SLOW DOWN! I need a break!” So, slow down, take the day off and rest. You’ll body will thank you by recovering and rejuvenating itself and you’ll be back to your busy schedule in no time!..

1. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) – Make an ACV tea to sip and/or gargle. Use 2 tablespoons ACV, 1-2 tablespoons honey (to taste), lemon juice (again, to taste) and a little hot water to dilute. It’s potent but the stronger it is, the faster it will work (of course you can change the amounts of everything to your liking). Use it 3-4 times a day (less is ok too but the more you do it, the better the results). ..

4. Increase Vitamin C & D – Vitamin C has long been known to support the immune system and fight off colds. As with any supplement, check with your doctor first but about 500-2000 milligrams every 2 hours is recommended. Fruits and veggies high in Vitamin C are oranges, kiwis, bell peppers, guavas, strawberries, dark leafy greens, papaya, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Additionally, having enough Vitamin D reduces your risk of catching a cold in the first place. Sunlight and fish are great sources of D.

7. Honey – Make sure it’s local and raw. Honey has antioxidants, antiviral and antibacterial properties, boosts the immune system and soothes sore throats and coughs. Add 1-2 tablespoons to your ACV tea, ginger tea or just a cup of warm boiled water. Add some lemon for the added benefit of Vitamin C.
(Don’t give honey to infants and young children). As healthy as honey is, make sure you don’t overdo it (see #8 below!).

8. Just say NO (to sugar!) – Sugar weakens your immune system! It may be tempting when you have a sore throat to have hard candies, sugar in your tea, pudding/jello, popsicles/ice cream but if it’s high in sugar … STEP AWAY! This will only make you sicker and prolong your cold. Opt for sugar free items or better yet, just stick to tea sans the sweetener and soups…”

Wasp Sting Written by Erica Roth Medically Reviewed by Steven Kim, MD on August 24, 2015 healthline.com
“..Wasp stings are common, especially during the warmer months when people are outside for longer periods of time. Wasp stings can be uncomfortable, but most people recover quickly and without complications.

Wasps, like bees and hornets, are equipped with a stinger as a means of self-defense. A wasp’s stinger contains venom (poisonous substance) that’s transmitted to humans during a sting. While a bee can only sting once because its stinger becomes stuck in the skin of its victim, a wasp can sting more than once during an attack. Wasp stingers remain intact.

However, even without a lodged stinger, wasp venom can cause significant pain and irritation….”

Healthy Outlook-
How to Treat Bee and Wasp Stings—and When to See a Doctor

By Dr. Thomas McCoy cchealth.org
“.. All kidding aside, bee stings can actually pose a serious health threat. If someone is allergic to bees, a sting can be a life-threatening situation. In the vast majority of cases, though, bee or wasp stings are not a cause for concern—they usually just cause some pain, swelling, redness and itching at the site of the sting.

Dealing with a bee or wasp sting will obviously be different depending on your sensitivity. But let’s begin with the most common scenario in which a person has a mild reaction. The first thing you need to do is remove the stinger if you were stung by a bee (wasps don’t leave stingers behind). You can get it out with your fingers, tweezers or even the edge of a credit card. Remove it as quickly as you can in order to limit the amount of venom released.

Next, wash the affected area with soap and water. Once you’ve done that, apply ice and take an anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen to limit the swelling. If the affected area gets itchy—a fairly common side effect—you can apply hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion to get some relief. The pain and discomfort should go away in a few hours. With a more moderate reaction, swelling around the site of the sting may persist for a few days and even grow larger. ..”

Acne

-Causes

Acne vulgaris. Prevention, Natural home remedies – Grow Youthful growyouthful.com

“..Causes of acne

Acne is most common at puberty because the surge of hormones at this time stimulates the sebaceous (oil-producing glands) in the skin and makes them prone to blockages and infection. In adolescence, acne is usually caused by an increase in testosterone that occurs in both males and females at this time. The testosterone is associated with an enlargement of the sebaceous glands and an increase in sebum (waxy oil) production.
Several hormones have been linked to acne, including those that change around puberty and menstrual cycles. Taking pharmaceutical anabolic steroids (which mimic testosterone) can also cause acne.
Milk. Dairy products can cause acne. (3,5,9) Dairy products promote a hormone called insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), and may also promote the production of some types of estrogens. IGF-1 levels peak in the teenage years, and may be abnormally high if you consume a lot of dairy products.
I suspect this may apply more to pasteurised dairy products rather than raw dairy products, but could not find any research to confirm this.
Sugar. A high-sugar, high-starch diet is associated with acne. (3,4)

Minor causes / triggers:
Oily processed foods.
Constipation.
Oil-based cosmetics.
Lack of fresh vegetables and fruit.

The 2 MOST Common Causes Of Eczema And 7 Ways To REVERSE It! By Dr. Mark Hyman healthy-holistic-living.com
“..Let me be more specific. If I had to narrow down eczema to two primary causes, I would say:

Leaky gut. Medically called “increased intestinal permeability”. This is a sign of a good gut gone bad. Leaky gut creates a low-grade inflammation in reaction to food particles (deemed foreign by your immune system) that literally leak through your gut wall. This causes food sensitivities, especially to gluten and dairy, which are the biggest food causes of eczema. Leaky gut also triggers many other health problems including fatigue, brain fog, headaches, depression, allergies, sinus problems, irritable bowel, reflux, joint pain, skin diseases such as acne and eczema, autoimmune diseases and more. Inflammation also causes weight gain which is triggered byinsulin resistance, food sensitivities and food allergies.
Abnormal gut flora. Getting rid of the overgrowth of bad bugs and yeast can make a huge difference to eliminate eczema. This is called dysbiosis. It is when the 3 pounds of bugs in your gut become out of balance driving inflammation. Yeast overgrowth is a common cause of eczema. It can be caused by a high-sugar, refined carb, low-fiber, processed diet. Yeast overgrowth also can be triggered by the use of antibiotics, steroids, hormones and even the birth control pill.

“..The month of May is Skin Cancer Awareness month and the mainstream media will be focused on healthy sun habits and getting dermatological exams. While some of this advice may be useful, there is very little discussion of nutrition and lifestyle in relation to melanoma skin cancer prevention. This article provides key research-based insights on lifestyle factors that influence the development of melanoma skin cancer and compounds and strategies to prevent it…

Plants Fight Skin Cancer

Phenolic compounds in plants contain anti-carcinogenic potential. Flavonols, lignins, stilbenes, and phenolic acids are synthesized by the plant to protect against the sun’s rays, chemicals, pathogens, pests, and are used to repair injury. These compounds not only protect the plant for survival, but consuming plants rich in phenolic compounds can also protect you from skin cancer.
Change your Diet and Protect Your Skin

Naturally occurring phenolic compounds in food are more readily available to the body for use than synthetic compounds found in many supplements. Plants exhibit skin cancer prevention in the following ways:..

Compounds That Help Protect Against Melanoma Skin Cancer

Adding these antioxidant rich compounds to your diet can improve your skin’s natural defenses:

Caffeic Acid: Found in spinach leaves, olive oil, apples, coffee, wine, and cabbage
Tannins: Contained in a variety of fruits and vegetables, nuts, coffee, and tea
Resveratrol: This type of stilbene is found in grapes, berries, and peanuts. Resveratrol helps to inhibit the over-production of melanin
Anthocyanins: Eat blackberries, bilberries, and honeyberries
EGCG: Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) has an anti-proliferative effect on cancer cells. Green tea is a rich source of this cancer fighting compound
Quercetin: Protects against genetic alterations leading to irreversible carcinogenesis. Eating whole apples, including their skin, helps protect against harmful UV damage
Ursolic Acid: Holy basil tea contains ursolic acid which shuts down cancer growth and down-regulates the genes associated with cancer growth
Luteolin: A major anticancer flavonoid, luteolin is found in medicinal herbs like chrysanthemum flowers, as well as in fruits and vegetables including celery, parsley, broccoli, carrots, and cabbage
melanoma skin cancer prevention..

Supplementing with Vitamin D3

When the region where you live or weather conditions prevent the sun’s rays from breaking through the clouds, vitamin D3 supplementation is ideal. Vitamin D3 is the active form of vitamin D and regulates the vitamin D nuclear receptor (VDR) for proper immune support.

Foods containing vitamin D include wild caught fish, eggs, mushrooms, and fermented dairy − but they only contain small quantities. Supplements like cod liver oil and sublingual vitamin drops and sprays are excellent strategies for maintaining healthy vitamin D levels….”

Once your dermatologist or doctor has identified a dangerous mole or you have identified a mole you’d like to remove, there are a few options for treatment.

Natural Skin Health: Dermatologist’s Diet Recommendations for Healthy Skin

by Cynthia Bailey, M.D. on October 17, 2009 in Diet, Nutrition, & Natural Health .drbaileyskincare.com

“The foods you eat should be packed with vitamins and minerals. When most of the foods you eat are nutritionally rich foods, your skin will be its healthiest and most beautiful! This is far from the magic bullet we all want in our fast paced lives; healthy eating requires real commitment.

What are nutritionally rich foods? Every time we buy manufactured food there’s nutritional information on the labels. In fact, we’re bombarded with nutritional information. Even junk foods list vitamin content. It’s confusing and so I use my common sense to figure out what foods are packed with vitamins and minerals. I recommend that the majority of what you eat be high nutrition foods including: ..

The Dermatologist’s Diet for Natural Skin Health

* Eat mostly vegetables, fruits and grains- organic or naturally farmed.
* Limit meats, fish, dairy and eggs-use them as an embellishment to your meal, not the main portion of what you eat-and be sure they’re from naturally farmed animals
* Use virgin olive oil
* Consider processed foods as a treat, not your main source of calories and nutrition”

How To Get Glowing Skin – Foods for Glowing Skin


‘Published on Jul 30, 2014

Most women (and some men) go to great lengths to make sure that their skin glows and they look attractive. However, beauty is skin deep and what you eat determines how you look. A diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins is considered good for your skin. But, if you are confused as to what food items you should eat, we give you a list of 10 foods that can make you more beautiful from within:

Sweet potatoes: They contain vitamin A which is anti-inflammatory and helps fight off acne-causing bacteria. It also has vitamin C which helps prevent acne and heals it if you already have it.
Pumpkin seeds: It is packed with zinc, an essential in the creation of new skin cells and an aid in protein synthesis and collagen formation. It controls the production of oil in the skin and adds colour and brightness to the complexion.

Apples: Vitamin C found in these fruit, helps to firm and tone the skin. It prevents free-radical damage, protects your skin cells and delays signs of ageing.

Medical Conditions-Asthma9) Apple. Similarly high in quercetin; apples have been shown to provide powerful protection against asthma. A study out of Europe found that pregnant women who ate at least four apples per week were 53 percent less likely to bear a child with doctor-confirmed asthma. And the same study that linked banana consumption to lowered asthma symptoms also found that children who drink apple juice are about 50 percent less likely to develop asthma symptoms.Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/039632_superfoods_asthma_relief.html#ixzz3bepEJTE2

Beets: They are a great source of anthocyanins – a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation and slows down the ageing process and helps prevent wrinkles. Beetroot is also good for overall health.
Carrots: For the ultimate anti-ageing, wrinkle-fighting boost, add vegetables high in vitamin C like carrots in your diet which can protect and improve your skin. They are high in beta carotene which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A is one of the most important nutrients for healthy skin. You can also make these anti-ageing potions using veggies.

Strawberries: Mashed strawberries mixed with honey, avocados or yoghurt can bring a healthy radiance to the skin. But you can also use the juicy red fruit to whiten teeth. Strawberries contain malic acid, a natural whitening agent.

Lemons: Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which plays an important role in the synthesis of collagen in the body. For this reason, the regular use of lemons – both internally as part of the diet and externally on the skin – can help keep your skin healthy and free from scars. You could also use lemons for skin problems like acne, blackheads, etc.

Tomatoes: Tomatoes have an antioxidant called lycopene which acts as a sunscreen from within and has anti-ageing properties too. Tomatoes are acidic in nature and applying their pulp to the pimple causes the skin to dry and the pores of the skin in the region get tightened.
Spinach: Spinach is loaded with antioxidants which can help reduce the onset of wrinkles making it a good anti-ageing product. It also strengthens your skin tissue and has anti-inflammatory properties which helps flush out the toxins.

Amla: The extract of amla is rich in Vitamin A. This vitamin is essential in collagen production, a compound that keeps the skin looking young and elastic. Amla when consumed on an empty stomach has properties that slow down the degradation of collagen and helps the body produce more.

How to Choose the Right Sunscreen for Your Skin Type – SkinCancer … skincancer.org

“..Incidental vs. intense exposure:

For starters, the kind of sunscreen you use may vary depending on the type of outdoor exposure you are expecting. For incidental sun exposure — when you are outside only for minutes at a time — a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15, which filters out about 93 percent of UV radiation, is usually sufficient. Your sunscreen should have broad spectrum protection, meaning it effectively protects against significant portions of both the ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) ranges of the light spectrum. Most broad-spectrum formulas contain multiple sunscreen ingredients. For extended, intense exposure, you should use a broadspectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. SPF 30 filters out up to 97 percent of the sun’s UV radiation; SPF 50 filters out up to 98 percent…”

“.. A good rule of thumb is to wear a healthy sunscreen product on your face and any other exposed areas every day. This is because sun damage can accumulate over time from short and incidental sun exposure each day. Even if you are spending most of your days indoors, you can still be fully exposed to powerful UVA rays (these rays can penetrate glass windows). Ideally, you’ll want to reapply your organic sunscreen every two hours; however, this can be a difficult + inconvenient habit to build. Try using a solid SPF 30 product (longer protection), wearing a hat + sunglasses when outdoors, and making a note to reapply your sunscreen before going outside. Keeping a jar of sunscreen in your bag or car will help to solidify this habit. Also, your lips need SPF protection too!

Home Remedies to Solve Dry Skin Problems This Winter
Winter is a season that brings many pleasurable experiences, but dry skin is not one of them. It is one of the most common problems that people have to deal with during the winter days.

The skin tends to become drier due to the drop in the temperature and also humidity. This causes the skin to become dehydrated, leading to dry skin patches as well as irritation or itchiness.

Best Moisturizer for Dry Sensitive Skin

1. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the popular and effective treatments for dry skin during the winter months. It contains ample amounts of fatty acids that can compensate for any loss of moisture from the skin.

It also has protein as well as vitamin E that help retain moisture in your skin.

Also, its antioxidant property is good for your skin’s overall health. In addition, because this oil is nongreasy, it is easily absorbed by the skin.

* Warm up some coconut oil in a microwave for a few seconds and apply it on your skin before bathing. Massage it gently so that the oil penetrates into the skin. Wait 10 minutes, then take a bath or shower. Repeat this remedy once daily.

* When suffering from extremely dry skin, you can apply coconut on your somewhat damp skin after taking a bath.

2. Honey
Honey is considered another natural moisturizer loaded with antioxidant, antimicrobial and humectant properties.

Any of the following remedies can be used once daily:

* Before taking a bath or shower, rub some raw honey all over your body and massage gently using circular motions. Wait 10 minutes, then take a bath or shower.

* Mix equal amounts of honey and glycerin. Apply it on your hands, wait 10 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.

3. Olive Oil

Another effective remedy for dry skin is definitely olive oil. Olive oil contains antioxidants such as vitamin E that help neutralize the oxidant effect of free radicals that damage collagen, which causes skin dryness. It also works as a great natural moisturizer.

Plus, the healthy fatty acids in it can soothe and condition dry skin all over your body.

* For daily use, rub some lukewarm olive oil on your hands, legs and other areas with dry skin. Massage lightly using circular motions and wait 30 minutes. Take a shower to rinse it off, then apply a light moisturizer.

* For weekly use, add enough olive oil to 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to make a paste. Dampen your skin, then use this mixture as a gentle scrub. Leave it for 15 minutes, then wash it off with lukewarm water.

4. Milk Cream

Another milk-based product that can combat skin dryness is milk cream. The high-fat content in milk cream works as a natural moisturizer for dry skin.

The lactic acid in milk helps exfoliate the dry, dead surface of the skin and accelerates collagen production, too. It also helps maintain the proper pH balance of your skin.

* For daily use, rub some fresh milk cream on your dry skin. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, then rinse it off thoroughly with lukewarm water.

* Another option for daily use is to thoroughly mix 1 teaspoon each of milk cream and milk. Stir in a few drops of lemon juice. Apply the paste on your face, hands, and legs. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then wash it off with water.

5. Aloe Vera

When it comes to skin dryness, aloe vera is just the ingredient that you need to make your skin soft and vibrant even during the winter season.

It acts as a wonderful moisturizer and improves your skin tone. It also relieves itchiness and prevents cracking and flaking associated with dry skin.

A study published in Skin Research and Technology reports that freeze-dried aloe vera extract is effective at improving skin hydration due to its humectant properties.

1. Extract the gel from an aloe vera leaf.
2. Apply it all over your body.
3. Massage for a few minutes to help the gel penetrate deep into the skin.
4. Wait 30 minutes, then rinse it off using lukewarm water.
5. Do this once or twice daily.

Health: How to “fight” the flu?

I’ve rarely catch the flu and when I do, I do all these “home remedies” to fight it without any prescription meds (e.g. Tami Flu). I average “one” or “no” flu a season. I never had to get a vaccination at all…maybe as a kid, but never as an adult. In fact, this past winter season, I didn’t catch it all! I decided to do a blog on this topic today after chatting with someone that has it, which I asked her ..during the summer!? I did this to give her some “natural” remedies to fight this…

The flu (influenza) viruses

“…influenza viruses cause the flu and are divided into three types, designated A, B, and C. Influenza types A and B are responsible for epidemics of respiratory illness that occur almost every winter and are often associated with increased rates of hospitalization and death. Influenza type C differs from types A and B in some important ways. Type C infection usually causes either a very mild respiratory illness or no symptoms at all; it does not cause epidemics and does not have the severe public-health impact of influenza types A and B. Efforts to control the impact of influenza are aimed at types A and B, and the remainder of this discussion will be devoted only to these two types….”
Flu Attack! How a Virus Invades Your Body
January 06, 2014 articles.mercola.com
https://youtu.be/Rpj0emEGShQ

“… The video above gives a wonderfully clear illustration of what happens when someone nearby you sneezes… and you end up inhaling the virus. It’s said that a single sneeze may produce up to 40,000 droplets, which may leave your mouth at speeds of more than 200 miles per hour.1 While some of the heavier droplets will fall to the floor, others remain airborne and are quickly circulated around the room. If the droplet is infected with a virus, and you inhale it, the video shows how a single virus can quickly begin producing millions of copies within your cells.

It’s a frightening prospect, until you realize that your body has more than 1 trillion cells – making 1 million viruses a mere drop in the bucket.

Also important, your body is equipped with its own highly effective defense system – your immune system – that starts killing viruses almost as quickly as they are produced. As long as your immune system can stay one step ahead of the virus, you’ll feel better again quickly… and in some cases may not even know you were “sick.”

Preparing Yourself for the Flu Season Naturally

By Catherine Clinton ND, Clinic of Natural Medicine naturopathic.org
“Each winter the influenza virus wreaks havoc on our ability to work and play. Symptoms of the flu include fever, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, runny nose, cough and stomach symptoms like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Sometimes a flu virus can come on slowly or it can hit suddenly without much notice. Each year this leads people to wonder how they can prevent themselves and their family from getting the flu. Naturopathic prevention and treatment of the flu virus includes vitamins and minerals, botanical medicine and lifestyle recommendations….

Lifestyle tips for the prevention and treatment of the flu:

Sleep- Maintaining a balanced sleep routine is one way to keep our immune system healthy. Adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night to rejuvenate for the next day. Consistent inadequate sleep lowers the body’s defenses needed for fighting viral infections.

Stress- While stress is a part of everyday life; excessive stress can decrease immune function and make it easier to come down with the flu. Establishing stress management techniques like deep breathing, exercise, yoga or meditation can help ensure that every day stress won’t leave you vulnerable to the flu.

Diet- A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and quality proteins is a foundation for a healthy immune system. Studies have shown that eating a sugary snack or meal can depress the immune system for several hours, creating a window of time during which it is easier to get the flu. Avoiding excessive sugar can keep the immune system working at the level needed to fend off viral infections, like the flu….

“..Is it a common cold or the flu? If your symptoms are above the neck—congestion, sore throat, sneezing, coughing—you probably have a cold. If you have all those symptoms plus a fever of 38.8˚C (102˚F) or more, headache, muscle aches, extreme fatigue, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, you’re more likely to have the flu.
What you can do for colds and flu

• For a sore throat remedy, fill a 250 mL glass with warm water, mix in one teaspoon of salt and gargle away. The salt really does soothe the pain.

• Add a squeeze of lemon juice to a glass of warm water for the more traditional sore throat gargle. This creates an acidic environment that’s hostile to bacteria and viruses.

• Chicken soup is a time-honoured remedy that is tried, tested and true…”

“As soon as they are feeling a little bit hungry, you can advance to the BRAT diet,” advises Frankowski. That stands for bananas, rice, applesauce, or toast. Plain crackers are fine too.

HEALING

Flu: A Prayer for Healing

Flu healed – instantly after prayer (Living a Vision – a supernatural lifestyle)

“Published on Apr 26, 2012

This woman asked for prayer as she was feeling quite bad from the flu. After prayer, she felt heat moving through her body and she was healed. Here’s her testimony.”

Healed from Sinusitis!

Gerhard – St. Petersburg, Russia cai.org
“…Rebuke the infection of the sinuses.
Lay hands on your face and order the sinuses to open, and the pus to flow out. Order the sinuses to heal.
Pray for the arms to become the same length (this corrects any twists in the spine) and order the swelling of the sinuses to disappear.
Avoid nicotine (no problem after I became a Christian) and caffeine.
Drinking at least 8 glasses of water will help.
A few hours after this prayer and drinking lots of water, the pus started to stream down my nose and the pressure was released! Praise the Lord – He did it without any needles!..

“.. So I did everything I thought of – I commanded any spirits of infirmity to leave me, I came against the sickness in Jesus name, I cast it out my body, but it got progressively worse. The body chills started which led to body pain. I kept running to the bathroom wanting to throw up. I prayed throughout the day for my healing because I did not want to take more time off work! By the time I got home, all I could do was lie in bed and literally cry like a baby from the pain. I could not get up because my dizziness was so severe I kept falling all over the place.

As I lay in bed in tears, it got to the point of me now begging God for healing. “Please Lord, I don’t even know what to pray anymore!”
Suddenly and as clear as day the words “JESUS IS LORD” flashed in my mind. I just went with it. As loudly as I could muster, halfway into my pillow, I declared, “Jesus is Lord… Jesus is Lord…sickness-Jesus is Lord, so get away from me.”

Within twenty minutes I was as right as rain! The dizziness and fever went away and so did the body pain! I was able to eat something for the first time that day. And I had sweet sleep (Proverbs 3:24). It was as if I could feel the illness dissolve…”
