My frizzy disaster 

There is a time when my hair would never do what I wanted it to. I used to battle with it on a daily basis using all sorts of products and they never seemed to work. I went through hundreds of products and I never seemed to get the lush look I used to see in the health and fitness magazines. I loved Beyoncé and Cristine Aguilera who were my icons who were always so fit and healthy with amazing bodies the made my want to keep looking until I found something that made me look like them.

There are loads of hair products and for those who understand what it is like to have frizzy hair it is not surprising to hear this. I used to wake up in the morning and when standing in the mirror look at my frizzy hair and wonder how the hell am I going to tackle this? I used to tug, comb, spray, brush and then layer some hair products on that would make my hair feel awful and I knew I needed to find some solution.

I went around for 9 years with a Frizzing-disaster and all for nothing, until one day my friend was discussing her latest hot oil treatment that she was using for her clients to improve the quality of the skin, which also included hair, scalp and overall vitality of the face. This was sounding all well and good, but underneath I knew this wouldn’t work for me. After explaining how this wouldn’t work for me, she handed me a bottle to try and said if I like I can pay for it at a later date.

I was AMAZED to find out what this did for my hair and with my first application I noticed that is made my dry hair moist and smooth, silky and lovely to touch. Then my dry scalp was no longer itchy and all this was begging to get exciting. I was amazed to find that my curls and frizzy hair became less and less frizzy. Could it be true I was saying to myself is this the miracle product for my hair I have been looking for? Yes, it was and to this day this hot oil is the perfect choice for me.…

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease In Children

There can be various factors affecting the esophagus such as gastric reflux, bleeding of the varicose blood vessels, cancer, tears, constrictions, and motility disorders which can cause difficulty and pain in swallowing or chest pain. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or acid reflux is one of the disorders of the esophagus in which stomach contents come up back into the esophagus. It occurs because of the incomplete or poor closure of esophageal sphincter located at the junction between the stomach and the lower esophagus. Symptoms caused by GERD include:

  • Acid-like taste in the back of the mouth and bad breath
  • Heartburn and vomiting
  • Chest pain
  • Breathing problems
  • Wearing away of theteeth

GERD in infants and children

Spitting up of milk without causing any other distress to the infant is called gastroesophageal reflux or GER. GERD is more severe and long-term and can sometimes be asymptomatic and difficult to detect in infants and children as their communication abilities are not developed. So observation is the only way to identify its existence. The most common symptoms are effortless spitting up of milk or food and repeated vomiting causing discomfort to the infant. Other manifestations are a cough, wheezing, bad breath, inconsolable crying for feeding but refusing to feed and again crying to feed.  Some infants may become underweight and show unpleasant face after feed and burp.

Underlying reasons for GERD in children

The reason for GERD in infants is the undeveloped digestive system at birth, primarily caused by the increasing early births now. The infants might be having poor coordination of the processes in the alimentary canal or issues with nervous system and muscles. The symptoms disappear between the age of six months and one year in most of the infants. However, the disorder continues to be present in some children even after one year, particularly when there is a family history of GERD.

Benefits Of Taking Mass Gainer Supplements

Like any other external dietary supplement you use, mass gainers too have their own benefits and drawbacks. If you choose a good mass gainer protein powder and follow the dosage instructions and also continue maintaining a healthy diet and workouts, then you can see more of the positive effects of the mass gainer and avoid the negative effects. Here are some of the benefits of taking mass gainer supplement powders along with your daily diet:

  1. Better and improved muscle mass:

This is, in fact, the first main benefit of going for a mass gainer. The muscle mass of those who work out and then take a mass gainer supplement is found to be better and the results start showing faster than those who don’t take any such supplements. These add a backup to your workout routines.

  1. More energy for your workouts:

The mass gainers all come with a good proportion of carbohydrates that can be easily broken down by the body. This breaking down of carbohydrates releases energy. This can help you exercise for longer with more energy than with your normal diet alone.

  1. An easier way to meet calories:

You can skip breaking your head over the calculation of calories. When you consume normal food, you would mostly not know the precise number of calories you consume. But with a mass gainer, it is all there on the label, each portion of the mass gainer consumed would contain exactly the same amount of calories as given on the label. This would help tracking calories easier if you use these as meal replacement options.

  1. Better recovery:

When you work out, your muscles are strained a great deal. This is what results in pain and fatigue after intense workouts, the quickness with which your body recovers would also determine how well you resume your exercises. Mass gainers help to hasten the recovery process.
