11 Signs You Are About To Have a Heart Attack

Heart disease is either the number 1 or number 2 killer of Americans. Heart attacks present themselves differently in each person and even between the sexes.

However, there are enough common symptoms that if you experience one or two of these symptoms suddenly, you may want to either call 911 or visit the ER.


Risks include age (over 65), sex (male), family history, race (African descent), smoking, obesity and diet, lack of exercise, high cholesterol, alcohol consumption, and stress.

You don’t have to have risk factors to have a heart attack, so be aware of symptoms!

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…

Homemade Egg Protein Treatment For Hair

Eggs are packed with protein, sulfur and biotin, all of which contribute to shiny, healthy hair when eaten or applied as a hair mask. Because of the quick spoilage rate of this natural product, commercial hair products don’t contain eggs. Yet, home treatments using eggs require little time, expense or experience. Use either whole eggs or egg yolks to condition dry and damaged hair.

Basic Method


Herbalist Barbara Griggs notes that the basic hair conditioning treatment with eggs is simple. Beat one or two eggs. Apply the egg mixture to clean, dry hair, working from scalp to ends. Wait at least 30 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. Follow the water rinse with a shampoo. Complete the treatment with a homemade vinegar rinse.


Deluxe Method


Combine the fatty and antioxidant richness of coconut and avocado with the eggs for a super-rich hair treatment, suggests GrannyMed.com. Mash half an avocado and mix with one egg yolk and enough coconut milk to form a paste. Work it into the hair f…

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…
