6 Simple And Effective Home Remedies For Water Retention

Water retention or fluid retention, is the accumulation of excess body fluid in certain areas of the body. It is, in the worse cases, quite the unsightly looking condition.

In milder condition, it can cause someone to look obese despite not being overweight. It can also cause pressure fluctuations and in the worst of cases, even a coma.

The clearest symptoms of water retention are easy to notice: swelling of joints, lethargy and a general stiffness in the body.

In the worst of cases, the excess tissue fluid has to be drained out, using minor surgical methods. This would not only be painful but costly too.

8 Natural Remedies For Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a complex disorder that causes pain and fatigue in the muscles. This pain tends to be on specific tender points on the body, including on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, arms, and legs, and occurs when pressure is put on them.

Doctors don't really know what causes fibromyalgia. People of all ages, genders, and ethnicities develop it, but it appears to be more common in middle-aged women.

In addition, people with a history of rheumatoid arthritis or other autoimmune diseases often develop fibromyalgia.

There is no cure for fibromyalgia, but it is possible to manage the symptoms, with medication and other lifestyle changes.

Natural remedies and lifestyle changes
While there are medications that can help manage fibromyalgia, self-care in the form of some lifestyle changes and even some natural remedies can be effective in controlling the condition.

An important part of self-care is finding a supportive doctor who understands and cares for people with fibromyalgia and…

Building Muscle On A Vegetarian Diet

More and more people have shifted to adopt a plant-based diet due to its touted health benefits and nutritional strongpoints. However, many weight-trainers hesitate to make this lifestyle change due to one glaring question: is it still possible to build muscle?

For years, the conventional belief has been that meat was the only way to build muscle. However, well-planned vegetarian diets that include other high-quality proteins can also assist in muscular development – no steak required.

The protein sources and types are going to vary with each athlete, depending on which vegetarian type diet they have assumed. Looking at some of the main categories, a lacto-ovo vegetarian consumes a diet that excludes meat, poultry and fish but does include eggs and dairy products, which are good sources of protein. Similarly, a lactovegetarian’s diet is one that excludes meat, poultry, fish and eggs but does include dairy products. Lastly, a vegan diet is one that excludes all animal products, includ…
