In certain situations, a proper diet can help to resolve a health problem. Here is what you could eat when you are down, or when you can not sleep, have migraines, stomach problems, etc. .
Sweet potato against bad mood
Instead of chips and candy, we could eat sweet potatoes! Sweet potato is one of the healthiest sources of carbohydrates. It is known that carbohydrates affect the production of serotonin, one of the so-called “happiness hormone” that lifts the spirits. Also, sweet potato is rich in dietary fiber which enables the carbohydrates to slowly enter into the bloodstream and maintain stable energy levels.
Humus for good sleep
If you have trouble with sleeping, hummus can help. Tryptophan, an amino acid that contains chickpeas (the main ingredient in hummus), acts on the production of melatonin (normally the level of this hormone rises in the evening), making you drowsy.
Cherry juice for pain in muscles
If you have gone too far with physical activity, drink cherry juice. Cherries contain anthocyanins – anti-inflammatory antioxidants that may help reduce muscle pain after exercise. Studies have shown that if you drink cherry juice before and after physical activity, you can reduce the pain and speed up the recovery of the muscle.
Peppermint tea for stomach problems
Recommendation is not new, but science confirms what people have long known : one or two cups of mint tea can help the digestive organs. Studies have shown that peppermint can help to relieve abdominal pain and discomfort by preventing muscle cramps in the stomach.
Spinach against migraine
Instead of drinking drugs, eat a salad of raw spinach. Magnesium are normally used to treat acute migraine attacks, and spinach contains magnesium and riboflavin, another ingredient that can relieve the symptoms of migraine .
Vitamin A from carotene provides us with better pigmentation and healthy skin, hair and nails.

In cosmetic surgery there are a number of non-invasive methods that may solve some of the wrinkles for longer or shorter time and thus perform facial rejuvenation, while at the same interventions do not require any preoperative treatment.

Botox, fillers and mesotherapy
Wrinkles can be solved by injecting botox at doses that are several hundred thousand times less than the toxic dose. Botulinum toxin acts at the neuromuscular synapse stopping the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscle fibers, but affects only certain parts of some of the muscles.
Apart from Botox there are different fillers which can be used if a person wants to significantly reduce the depth of the wrinkles. The most commonly used are artificial fillers, such as various preparations of hyaluronic acid and similar natural products, the effects of which have a limited duration, which is between six months and one year. There are also permanent fillers such as Aquamid whose effects lasts for many years.
Mesotherapy is a completely new procedure to rejuvenate facial skin, neck and chest. It is the injection of specific products in the region to be treated with the achieved effects of hydration, nutrition, tension, rapid regeneration and rejuvenation of the skin. Special gun and thin needles, virtually painless, the surgeon injects a drug in the superficial layers of the skin after which it becomes fresher, and the wrinkles softer.
Facial rejuvenation with radiowaves
This method of facial rejuvenation is performed with a radio machine with high frequency – 4MHz. Based on the characteristics of the radio waves passing through the skin and subcutaneous tissue, converting the energy into heat due to the resistance of tissues. Going through the layers of skin radio wave beam exerts its effect solely on the collagen and elastin fibers dermis, which the first reaction is intense contractions, which explains the immediate effect after the procedure. However, the real effect is based on the relaxation of these fibers after 7 days.
The intervention does not require anesthesia of the treated region, it is performed on an outpatient basis, which means that the patient immediately after the treatment can leave the hospital and attend to daily activities. This technique significantly reduces the effects of ageing.

Have you heard the news about Garcinia Cambogia? Many famous diet experts are talking about it on the television and in magazines, proclaiming it to be one of the biggest breakthroughs in the weight loss industry for some time.
So what exactly is it?
Quite simply, the Garcinia Cambogia extract is a fruit that is widely found in Asia. Natives have been using it for many years, to help them stay healthy, lose weight, and add flavor to their exotic dishes.
Generally, people are presumed to have healthy teeth. However, the modern diet greatly affects teeth decay. How can we prevent it?
Carbonated drinks are especially harmful because they directly damage the tooth enamel. It is scary to see preschool children with completely destroyed deciduous teeth – as a result of drinking some unhealthy drink.
So, in addition to regular hygiene, you should not forget the importance of proper nutrition. Nutrition should provide some important vitamins and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, fluorine, vitamins A, D, C, and B complex vitamins.
In this case, the rule is that one should eat food that is less processed (this means the advantage of whole grains and whole-wheat flour products). Foods made with white flour contain a larger amount of starch that sticks to the teeth. Particularly, the most damaging is the combination of starch and sugar.
A survey has found that the use of probiotics reduces inflammation in the intestines and increases bone density. It has recently been published in the Journal of Cellular Physiology.
The researchers of The Michigan State University fed mice with the bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri for 4 weeks. From previous studies is concluded that Lactobacillus reuteri is effective in reducing intestinal inflammation. The fact that the intestinal inflammation is associated with osteoporosis has led researchers to investigate the efficiency of Lactobacillus bacteriums to the health of bones.
Researchers have found that the bone density of male mice improved after taking Lactobacillus reuteri. However, in females, bone density is not improved. This probably indicates that it is necessary to include other probiotics into the treatment of females.
After the discovery of the connection between probiotics and bone density, several studies are initiated to determine which are the best probiotics to prescribe certain persons as a cure for osteoporosis. Results are expected soon.
Many of us like to stick with the familiar, even if it’s not a “good” familiar. This doesn’t just go for personal relationships and broken-down shoes. It also goes for computer programs. We like ‘em, we’re familiar and feel “in charge” of them, and that makes us feel confident and competent.
What happens when we realize our old Norton 360 program is no longer anywhere near up-to-date and has become almost useless? What if we want to change to another manufacturer’s internet security product? Can we just go to the “My Computer” icon and choose to “Add or Remove Programs”, click a button, and have it disappear like magic?
That is not likely to work! Why, you may ask? When first you installed your old version of Norton 360 on your PC, it integrated itself, or became vitally entangled with, your computer. It works best that way. Unfortunately, it’s hard to get rid of, kind of like kudzu vines. You think you’ve followed the proper procedure for removing it, then you turn around and realize it’s not really gone.
Norton 360 generally doesn’t remove system files voluntarily when it leaves, which means it is taking up memory and slowing down your computer. You may be able to contact Symantec for further assistance, and if they cannot help you remove the unwanted “extras”, you may end up having to just disable anything related to Norton 360, or upgrade to a newer version of the product and continue to use it in its advanced form.
