WHOOPING COUGH    
















WHOOPING COUGH

Known medically as pertussis, whooping cough is a contagious respiratory tract infection. At first, whooping cough may mirror symptoms of an ordinary cold. However, at some point, it can actually progress into a more serious problem especially in infants. In its most advanced stages, the infection is characterized by a severe, hacking cough followed by a high-pitched intake of breath that sounds like "whoop" which is where the condition gets its name.

In the early 1900’s whooping cough was a leading cause of illness in children and even death in America. However, once a vaccine was developed in the 1940s, the number of cases gradually declined. On the 1080’s cases of whooping cough reached an all time low.

Since then, however, cases have been increasing, primarily among children that are too young to receive the full course of vaccinations as well as teenagers whose immunity has become weakened.

With proper treatment, the majority of teenagers and adults recover fully from whooping cough without complications. In children, especially those under 6 months of gage, the condition can be more serious.

Signs and symptoms of whooping cough usually take a few days to a few weeks to begin surfacing. Once they do, they are initially mild at first and mirror those of a common cold, such as:

- A runny nose

- Nasal congestion

- Sneezing

- Red, watery eyes

- A mild fever

- Dry cough

- General feeling of illness and loss of appetite

After a week or two, signs and symptoms become worse and usually include:

Severe coughing attacks accompanied by a thick phlegm.

Coughing attacks (up to 15 coughs in a row) Which end with a high-pitched whoop sound as you gasp for air. These may be so severe that the child vomits or turns red or blue from the effort.

Fatigue (from excessive coughing).

Whooping cough is considered an upper respiratory infection meaning the areas affected are the upper airways, mostly the windpipe (trachea) and the tubes branching off from the windpipe (bronchi).

A person contracts the infection as a result of breathing in respiratory secretions of the Bordetella pertussis bacterium that are coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person. While whooping cough is most contagious early on, it can still be spread very easily until the infection clears completely.

Once the bacteria enter a person’s airways, it multiplies and produces toxins that interfere with the respiratory tract's ability to rid the body of germs. As a result thick mucus develops deep inside the airways which cause uncontrollable coughing.

Inflammation which narrows breathing tubes in the lungs can also occur, causing a person to gasp for air.

The regimen below includes a safe, natural approach to treating & preventing whooping cough:

If a child develops the condition, try to keep him or her calm, especially during coughing episodes.

Eliminate all possible coughing triggers, such as smoke and dust.

Use a cool mist humidifier and keep the child hydrated with small sips of water.

Avoid dairy products.

Check with the child’s healthcare provider prior to administering any herb or supplement.

The following supplements may also be helpful:

Garlic (2 capsules 3 times daily) - Improves immune function, holds antibacterial properties and helps expel Mucus from the lungs. I personally use Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract by Wakunaga of America, which is an odorless organic garlic supplement.

Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids (A large dose may be necessary) - Stimulates the immune system. Small amounts will not produce results so it should be taken every 15 minutes until bowel tolerance is reached. The whooping cough bacteria is destroyed by saturation doses of ascorbic acid.

Acidophilus (take as directed on label) - Stops harmful bacteria that cause infection and should be used if antibiotics are used because it replaces "friendly" bacteria.

Acupuncture - Traditional Chinese medicine which involves a combination of herbs that treat whooping cough.

Elecampane Root (take as directed on label) - Natural expectorant.

Marshmallow Root (take as directed on label) - Soothing to the respiratory tract.

Slippery Elm (take as directed on label) - Soothes the throat.

Osha Root (take as directed on label) - Mild cough suppressant.

Thyme (take as directed on label) - Clears respiratory congestion.

WRINKLES

Wrinkles begin to form as the skin begins to lose its elasticity and begins to thin over time. When the skin is full of elasticity and supple whenever a line is formed on the skin it goes right back to place, however with age these lines will become deeper and deeper and turn into permanent wrinkles. Of course age is a big factor with wrinkles, but it is not the only factor. Although in our society today we do all that we can to avoid wrinkles, some degree of skin wrinkles are inevitable no matter what you try to do to prevent them. As we all begin to age, our skin cells begin to produce more and more free radicals that are normally removed by natural antioxidants within your system. Unfortunately as we age these natural antioxidants become in short supply.

The free radicals that are generated during this stage of the aging process are left unchecked. This allows them to cause damage to the proteins, DNA and cell membranes. Eventually these free radicals break down the collagen within the skin and as we all know collagen is the key to wrinkle free skin. The combination of all these destructive actions creates the formation of wrinkles. The first sign of wrinkles is generally seen around the areas of the skin with the most delicate tissue such as the corner of the eyes and the lines around our smiles. There are more factors involved that contribute to the onset of wrinkles and how extensive they appear to the eye. Some of these factors include your diet, facial expressions that have become habit, nutritional habits, stress, constant exposure to environmental pollutants, skin care habits and general lifestyle habits, such as smoking. Each of these can be prevented and avoided to help keep your skin young looking for longer.

There are many ways to naturally prevent the signs of aging and experience wrinkles that are less severe than others.

  • Primrose Oil is a great tool when it comes to healing skin disorders such as acne, dermatitis and wrinkles. Can be taken in dosages of 1,000 mg, 3 times a day.
  • Vitamin A is important to help the construction of new skin tissue and the healing of damaged skin tissue.
  • Vitamin B Complex is an anti-stress and aging vitamin.
  • Silica is a natural supplement that works to help keep your skin strong and promote elasticity throughout the aging process.
  • Vitamin C is important for the creation of collagen in the skin. This natural supplement can also help eliminate the free radicals that destroy the collagen needed to prevent early signs of wrinkles.
  • Pure Aloe Vera gel can be used to heal and moisturize the skin. Apply as directed.
  • As always, consume a healthy diet consisting of an adequate amount of raw fruits and vegetables. Quite possibly the best way to do this is through juicing as you will intake the maximum amount of nutrients.
  • Use natural skin care products that don't contain harsh chemicals.

As you can see, there are many natural ways you can keep your skin healthy and strong without having to pay for cosmetic surgery

Having young looking skin is what almost everyone wants. The media has been hyping these days regarding how wrinkles will be eradicated. Almost every advertisement is finding ways to make one achieve young looking skin. This is because when several outfits surveyed women and men, asking them about what part of their face they want to be altered, the constant reply is they want to eradicate wrinkles. Wrinkles are the folding or creasing of the skin. When skin is immersed for a long time in water, such as the case when you do not want to get off the bath when you were a child, the skin forms creases. But when this happens in the bath when you were a child, this is just temporary. Older people are worried about permanent wrinkling of the skin, mostly because the society is giving more importance to young looking skin.

Ordinarily, we cannot stop the aging process, where wrinkling of the skin happens naturally. This is because we always express our emotions through creasing of our face. It is also due to the damages caused by the sun, smoking and poor hydration. But there are ways to slow them down, without resorting to surgery or using drugs, such as the popular injection of Botulinum toxins, or Botox, into the skin. Below are ways to find your path towards younger looking skin:

1.      Drink Water

Sixty percent of our body is made up of water. When there is decrease in the amount of water, or fluid, in our body, one of its manifestations is the wrinkling of the skin. This is because the body pulls water from the skin first in order to transfer water to the vital organs of our body, such as the heart and brain. By drinking enough amounts of fluids every day, the skin is kept hydrated, and there will be fewer tendencies to develop wrinkles. Remember that water may also come from food. The water contained in the food we eat, such as the vegetables and fruits, can also add to the hydration of our body. Unless contraindicated, always make sure that you are taking in at least 2000 milliliters of water per day. It does not only keep you hydrated, unwanted toxins are also eliminated, helping you more into having healthy and young looking skin.

2.      Take Coenzyme Q-10

Coenzyme Q-10 is a substance found in the body. It is a substance that assists in the transformation of food into energy. Every cell in the human body has CoEnzyme-Q10 (CoQ 10). Interestingly, CoQ 10 is also found out to be a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are important for it helps in the eradication of free radicals, the substances that compromises the integrity of the cell membrane. When there are a lot of free radicals in our body, the cells die faster, diseases are more prominent. Cancer and heart problems are some of the diseases affected due to damage of the cells caused by the free radicals. To neutralize the free radicals are the antioxidants, such as CoQ 10, which will not only reduce damage to the cells, but may also prevent the body cells from being damaged. Although produced naturally by the human body, CoQ 10 can also be sourced from organ meats, oily fish and whole grains. If taken through supplementation, make sure that CoQ 10 is limited to only 30 to 200 mg per day.

3.      Use Cocoa Butter as Moisturizer

If one listens carefully to the advertisements of skin products, some are promoting cocoa butter as a type of moisturizer. Cocoa butter is the vegetable oil that is extracted from the cocoa bean. It is used mainly as an ingredient of food products, such as chocolate, cookies and other baked goods. Because of its chocolatey aroma, it is also being used in pharmaceutical products. However, it is not just the aroma that makes cocoa butter a sought after product, it is its ability to moisturize the skin. Because it is a stable fat containing antioxidants, applying it to the skin prevents moisture from easily escaping. As it protects the epidermis, it also penetrates the deeper layer of the skin providing it with vitamin E and antioxidant protection.

4.      Eat Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables come in different colors. But despite the varied colors, fruits and vegetables has one thing in common for the skin – its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants eliminate the free radicals that damages the cell membranes, compromising the integrity of the cells and causing the body to develop diseases, such as the nasty cancer and of course, wrinkling of the skin. Increasing intake of fruits and vegetables also helps increase the body fluids, as well as assist in the moisturization of the skin.

5.      Massage your Face

If wrinkles are already apparent in the skin, no amount of massage can reverse the process. But if wrinkles are not yet developed, massaging the skin prevents the skin from developing wrinkles. Massage has many benefits. First, it stimulates the blood circulation of the skin as well as the production of hydrating oils. When massage is done regularly, the muscle tone is improved and skin creases are being prevented. There are various techniques of giving skin massage; using them well will optimize the results.

6.      Apply Yogurt, Almond Oil or Raw Honey

The cosmetic market has several types of skin care treatment to help prevent wrinkles. While some advertises that they are natural, some really consists of chemicals that may damage the skin. But if you have yogurt, raw honey and almond oil in your pantry, you can actually make a homemade wrinkle cream for yourself. Yogurt has a natural exfoliating factor. The lactic acid of yogurt help peel off the dead skin cells through the dissolution of the ceramides. When there is fine lines, yogurt’s lactic acid increases skin thickness and prevents the moisture from leaking out. Almond oil is said to have plenty of anti-ageing properties. And raw honey too, with its capacity to etch away the skin’s surface by removing the bacteria and dirt, as well as, removing the dead skin cells away. Combining the three ingredients helps prevent wrinkles away synergistically.

7.      Papaya and Oatmeal as Exfoliants

Through its exfoliating factor, papaya and oatmeal can help in removing and preventing wrinkles in the skin. By mixing at least two tablespoonful of papaya pulp with a tablespoonful of oatmeal, you can already have a natural exfoliant. Applying this to the face, massaging it for 10 minutes, and rubbing the mixture with flannel can help in slowing down the aging process as well as the development of wrinkles.
