EAT AND DANCE TO STAY WITH IT
Your Diet is important, Go Natural. Go low cost.
Eating Live green food when it is first born as a sprout.
Fast Ageing ?
In the research done recently at Harvard University ---The scientists discovered that seeded fruits have the longevity genes, while the seedless varieties possess fast-aging genes. It is as if the plant decides that its nutritional content has been so altered that the plant commits suicide by not producing seeds. Subsequently, when we consume seedless fruits, we consume fast-aging genes.
Dancers Feet Problems ( from the Web )
Achillies tendonitis causes inflammation and degeneration of the achilles tendon. The achilles tendon is the large tendon located in the back of the leg that inserts into the heel. The pain caused by achilles tendonitis can develop gradually without a history of trauma. The pain can be a shooting pain, burning pain, or even an extremely piercing pain. Achillies tendonitis should not be left untreated due to the danger that the tendon can become weak and ruptured.
Achillies Tendonitis is aggravated by activities that repeatedly stress the tendon, causing inflammation. In some cases even prolonged periods of standing can cause symptoms. It is a common problem often experienced by athletes, particularly distance runners. Achillies Tendonitis is a difficult injury to treat in athletes due to their high level of activity and reluctance to stop or slow down their training.
Individuals who suffer from achilles tendonitis often complain that their first steps out of bed in the morning are extremely painful. Another common complaint is pain after steps are taken after long periods of sitting. This pain often lessens with activity.
There are several factors that can cause achilles tendonitis. The most common cause is over-pronation. Over-pronation occurs in the walking process, when the arch collapses upon weight bearing, adding stress on the achilles tendon.
Other factors that lead to achilles tendonitis are improper shoe selection, inadequate stretching prior to engaging in athletics, a short achilles tendon, direct trauma (injury) to the tendon, and heel bone deformity.
Treatment and Prevention
Athletes, particularly runners, should incorporate a thorough stretching program to properly warm-up the muscles. They should decrease the distance of their walk or run, apply ice after the activity and avoid any uphill climbs. Athletes should use an orthotic device, heel cup, or heel cradle for extra support.
A heel cup or heel cradle elevates the heel to reduce stress and pressure on the achilles tendon. The device should be made with light-weight, shock absorbing materials. An orthotic device can be used to control over-pronation, support the longitudinal arch, and reduce stress on the achilles tendon.
If the problem persists, consult your foot doctor.
But painful and uncomfortable feet aren't a natural part of growing old or something to "put-up with". A lot can be done to improve comfort, relieve pain and maintain mobility.
It's not too late to start caring!
Follow the SCP daily foot care routine and keep on the move. Keeping toenails cut and under control will help keep you mobile but you may need help with this from your chiropodist/podiatrist or a friend.
Try to keep your feet as warm as possible, but don't cook them in front of the fire! Exercise is the best way and warm stockings or socks can help. Avoid anything too tight which can restrict your circulation or cramp your toes. Wearing fleece-lined boots or shoes or even an extra pair of socks will also keep you warm but do make sure your shoes aren't tight as a result. Bed socks are also a good idea.
CHOOSING THE BEST FOOTWEAR
The older you get, the more you need a shoe which holds your foot firmly in place to give adequate support. Throw out those sloppy old favourites as they may make you unstable when you walk.
Look for shoes with uppers made of soft leather or a stretchy man-made fabric which is also breathable. Avoid plastic 'easy clean' uppers which don't allow the foot to breathe and won't stretch to accommodate your own foot shape.
Many shoes have cushioning or shock absorbing soles to give you extra comfort while walking. When buying shoes, ensure that you can put them on and take them off easily. Check that the heel is held firmly in place - you'll find that a lace-up or velcro fastening shoe will give more support and comfort than a sliYour shoes should be roomy enough, particularly, if you intend to wear them everyday. If you suffer with swollen feet, it's a good idea to put your shoes on as soon as you wake up, before your feet have had a chance to swell.
LINKS TO CURE CANCER
The ONLY cause of corns is pressure.
For proper treatment of a corn, it is essential to first stop wearing the shoes that caused it. In most cases the corn will disappear when the pressure is removed.
Too much pressure can be from causes such as:
nature can help there is no point in wasting hard earned cash right?
Cut the rind from a pineapple (with some of the fruit intact) and place the fruit side against the corn; cover with gauze and tape overnight and it should fall off by the morning. and:
Soak crumbled bread in 1/4 cup of vinegar for 1.5 hours. Place the bread over the corn and cover with gauze and tape overnight. Repeat until the corn falls off.
One age old remedy for corns is to apply a lemon peel (white side against the corn) to the corn and affix it so that it stays on overnight. You can remove it during the day, but repeat each night for 7 days.
In addition to applying the lemon poultice mentioned above, put 1-2 drops of the essential oil of lemon on the corn during the day by using a Q-Tip to apply the oil. Don’t put the oil on the surrounding skin.
Aspirin paste can be used as a corn remedy. Crush a few Aspirins and add water to them until you get a smooth paste. Smear over the corn and wrap the foot with bandages and leave on for about 20 minutes. Wash off the area, let the foot dry and using a pumice (or file), gently remove the dead skin.
Finally, try soaking feet in tea, chamomile will do. Leave the feet in for 10-15 minutes and again, using pumice or file, scrape off the foot corn.
Make a paste of equal parts of washing soda and lime using water . apply it over the corn during night . Repeat the process up to a minimum of 5 nights and slowly, the corn affected skin dries of and sheds like flakes . avoid the mixture getting in contact with areas surrounding the corn . cover the surrounding area using a bandage.
Papaya fruit milky juice could also be applied on the corn in order to remove it
Tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar is very good for corn removal. After bathing, soak a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar and hold it on the area for a few minutes until corns are soft. Dry excess away and immediately soak the area with tea tree oil and let dry naturally. Do not wash it off. Corn will peel away easily in less than five days.
Apply pure castor oil three times a day to harden the corn. Soak feet in warm salt water and rub corn with a pumice stone every night. Reapply oil. It works in three days.
