These Everyday Habits May Damage Your Kidneys

These Everyday Habits May Damage Your Kidneys

healthy gem header logo 18710  1

"According to the National Kidney Foundation, kidney disease kills more than 90,000 Americans annually. That’s more than breast cancer or prostrate cancer. If we want to live long, healthy lives, we need to take care of our kidneys. But our daily habits might be preventing us from doing that.

It’s not too late to unlearn these habits. Simple changes to your diet, supplements, and sleep will prevent kidney disease in the future. New habits may also prevent other illnesses such as diabetes. For the sake of your kidneys, change these everyday habits."

Vitamin D For Better Health

Vitamin D For Better Health

harvard t h  chan

"Vitamin D is both a nutrient we eat and a hormone our bodies make. It is a fat-soluble vitamin that has long been known to help the body absorb and retain calcium and phosphorus; both are critical for building bone. Also, laboratory studies show that vitamin D can reduce cancer cell growth, help control infections and reduce inflammation. Many of the body’s organs and tissues have receptors for vitamin D, which suggest important roles beyond bone health, and scientists are actively investigating other possible functions."

Natural Sunscreens

Natural Sunscreens

"When it comes to sun protection, there are two main types: Chemical and mineral. The word 'natural' usually refers to mineral sunscreens, which use naturally-derived minerals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to block UV rays, as opposed to chemical formulas that absorb sun's rays. Mineral sunscreens are gaining popularity because they're free of controversial chemical sunscreen active ingredients like oxybenzone, and because, 'in general, there's been a movement toward natural and organic skincare,' says Elizabeth K. Hale, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City and senior vice president of The Skin Cancer Foundation."

Chiropractic Care for Degenerative Disc Disease

Chiropractic Care for Degenerative Disc Disease

spineu

"Chiropractic care is a treatment option you may want to try for degenerative disc disease (DDD). The first step the chiropractor will take with DDD is to carefully determine if you have a true disc-related problem.
The goal of chiropractic care for DDD is to improve joint mechanics by improving spinal motion and reducing inflammation. The chiropractor may also work on improving the function of the intervertebral discs—but that’s only if you do not have advanced disc degeneration.
To help treat your DDD symptoms, your chiropractor may use spinal manipulation (also called spinal adjustment). 
Your chiropractor may also recommend therapeutic exercises, which can help reinforce your other treatments. With chiropractic care, prevention is key, and therapeutic exercises can prevent your symptoms of degenerative disc disease from getting worse."

How to boost your immune system

How to boost your immune system

harvard health logo

"How can you improve your immune system? On the whole, your immune system does a remarkable job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms. But sometimes it fails: A germ invades successfully and makes you sick. Is it possible to intervene in this process and boost your immune system? What if you improve your diet? Take certain vitamins or herbal preparations? Make other lifestyle changes in the hope of producing a near-perfect immune response?

The idea of boosting your immunity is enticing, but the ability to do so has proved elusive for several reasons. The immune system is precisely that — a system, not a single entity. To function well, it requires balance and harmony. "
