Blood In Your Urine

Hematuria

When you find blood in your urine – known medically as hematuria – be calm, because it is usually not a reason for major alarm.

Sincee blood in urine can be a sign of a serious medical condition, however, it should not be ignored. All cases of hematuria should be evaluated by a doctor who can order tests to confirm or rule out an underlying cause.

There is no specific treatment for hematuria, because it is a symptom and not a specific condition. Instead, treatment is aimed at the underlying cause if one can be found. In many cases, no treatment is necessary.

Managing The Kidney Stones

Diagnosing Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are rarely diagnosed before they begin causing pain. This pain, called renal colic, is often severe enough to send patients to the ER (emergency room), where a variety of tests can uncover the stones. These may include a CT scan, X-rays, ultrasound, and urinalysis. Blood tests can help look for high levels of minerals involved in forming kidney stones.

The CT scan here shows a stone blocking the ureter, the duct that empties into the bladder.

The Kidney Stones

As the kidneys filter waste from the blood, they create urine. Sometimes, salts and other minerals in urine stick together to form small kidney stones. These range from the size of a sugar crystal to a ping pong ball or more, but they are rarely noticed unless they cause a blockage. They may cause intense pain if they break loose and push into the ureters, the narrow ducts leading to the bladder.

When kidney stones move through the urinary tract, they may cause: Read more…

Healthy Sex Can Boost Your Immune System

1001healthsecret.com health benefits of sex

The Health Benefits of Making Love

It’s official: sex is good for you, at least in moderation. Psychologists in Pennsylvania have shown that people who have sex once or twice a week get a boost to their immune systems.

Scientists can evaluate how robust our immune systems are by measuring levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), an antigen found in saliva and mucosal linings. “IgA is the first line of defence against colds and flu,” says Carl Charnetski of Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre. IgA binds to pathogens at all the points of entry to the body, then calls on the immune system to destroy them.

Food List for Type B Blood

Type-B Diet is Balance and Wholesome

The sturdy and alertType Bs are usually able to resist many of the most severe diseases common to modern life, such as heart disease and cancer. In fact, a Type B who carefully follows the recommended diet can often bypass severe disease and live a long and healthy life. Type Bs are more prone to immune-system disorders such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome. The Type B Diet is balance and wholesome, including a wide variety of foods. For Type Bs, the biggest factors in weight gain are corn, buckwheat, lentils, peanuts and sesame seeds. These foods have different lectin that affect the efficiency of the metabolic process, resulting in fatigue, fluid retention, and hypoglycemia. The gluten lectin in wheat germ and whole wheat products also adds to the problems cause by other metabolism-slowing foods. It is important to leave off chicken for Type Bs. Chicken contains a Blood Type B agglutinating lectin in its muscle tissue, which attack the bloodstream and potentially lead to strokes and immune disorders. Type Bs thrive on deep-ocean fish, but should avoid all shellfish. The shellfish contain lectins that are disruptive to the Type B system. Read more…

Food Chart for Type O

Blood Type-O Diet

According to Dr. D’Adamo, type Os thrive on intense physical exercise and animal protein. Unlike the other blood types, Type Os muscle tissue should beslightly on the acid side. Type Os can efficiently digest and metabolize meat because they tend to have high stomach-acid content. The success of the Type O Diet depends on the use of lean, chemical-free meats, poultry, and fish. Type Os don’t find dairy products and grains quite as user friendly as do most of the other blood types. Be careful, not to drink too much coffee; arabica coffee is the only coffee type O people may drink.
The initial weight loss on the Type O Diet is by restricting consumption of grains, breads, legumes, and beans. The leading factor in weight gain for Type Os is the gluten found in wheat germ and whole wheat products, which interferes with insulin efficiency and slow down metabolic rate. Another factor that contribute to weight gain is certain beans and legumes (lentils and kidney beans) contain lectins that deposit in the muscle tissues making them less “charged” for physical activity. The third factor in Type O weight gain is that Type Os have a tendency to have low levels of thyroid hormone or unstable thyroid functions, which also cause metabolic problems. Therefore it is good to avoid food that inhibits thyroid hormone (cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, mustard green) but increase hormone production (kelp, seafood, iodized salt).

Enzyme Alkaline Phosphatase: Where Blood Type Meets Digestion

Your unique blood type is a principal thing for your health; therefore, never ignore it’s role for your health. Below, I’d like to inform you what Dr. Peter D’Adamo, the real health guru, say about the health of  your digesting system.

No single diet theory can address all aspects of our individuality, and only a fool would claim that soy, red meat, grains, coconut oil or anything else is universally good or universally bad for everyone.

For example, people who are blood type O appear to derive significant benefit from a diet including hormone and antibiotic free meats and poultry. There is a very basic physiologic reason for this: those with type O blood have almost three times the levels of an enzyme in their intestines called ‘intestinal alkaline phosphatase’ (IAP). [1]. This enzyme performs two very important functions in the body. First, IAP splits dietary cholesterol into smaller fragments, allowing for their proper breakdown. Second, IAP enhances the absorption of calcium from the diet. Now you’d think this was cutting-edge, late-breaking news since it is obviously of tremendous interest in these nutrigenomic times. However, the first observations were made over four decades ago.[2]

The Flu: Blood Type Differences and the Power of Elderberry

While the versatility of elderberry and these other berries is incredible, this article is going to limit itself primarily to a focus on elderberry’s most well known use—as a remedy in the common flu.

Many medical experts consider the influenza virus (cause of the flu) to be the most dangerous virus in the world. Several times in past history, this virus has been responsible for killing huge numbers of people within a 1 to 2 year period. As an example, the Spanish flu (type A(H1N1)) of 1918-19 killed about 500,000 people in the U.S. and at least 20 million people worldwide. In 1957-58, the Asian flu (type A(H2N2)) resulted in 70,000 deaths in the US and in 1968-69, the Hong-Kong flu (type (A(H3N2)) killed 34,000 in the U.S.

What is the Flu?

Let’s pause here and take a moment to get a clearer picture of what the flu really is. Terminology and language can be fickle and non-specific masters, and so the common day-to-day use of the term flu has evolved to often encompass anything from a common cold to a true flu. Read more…

Food List for Blood Type O, A, B, AB

Blood Type Diet – The Concept

Serum and cells are main components of blood. It was noted by Karl Landsteiner, a physician at University of Vienna in Austria long time ago that some sera caused the red blood cell to agglutinate. Dr. Karl’s observation leads to the development of the ABO blood group system. In order to understand blood typing, it is essential to define antibody and antigen. Antibodies are known as immunoglobulin, it is found in serum, whose function is to combat invaders by binding themselves to antigen. Antigen is substance found on the surface of red blood cell, which, when introduced into organism that does not have antigen, it leads to production of antibody. The ABO blood group system is the most important blood type system. Classification of human blood can be divided into type A, type B, type AB and type O. These blood types have certain elements that can make them unique from one another. Because of this difference, one doctor had an idea and he started an international craze when he tried to prove that even in dieting, one plan does not fit all. Eventually, that type of diet was born.

Higher Calcium Intake Vs. Fractures and Osteoporosis

Higher Calcium Intake May Not Lower Risk for Fractures and Osteoporosis

Gradual increases in dietary calcium intake above the first quintile in a large female cohort are not associated with further reductions in fracture risk or osteoporosis, according to the results of a prospective longitudinal cohort study reported in the May 24 issue of the BMJ.

“It is problematic to make recommendations regarding calcium intake based on the results from clinical trials and previous cohort studies,” write Eva Warensjö, from Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden, and colleagues. “Meta-analyses of randomised trials found that supplemental calcium gave modest or no reduction in risk of fracture. Both the habitual dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D status may affect the outcome and are rarely accounted for in the design of calcium supplementation trials.”
