What Is Tapping and Does It Really Work?

Tapping, most commonly known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a type of energy psychology that combines eastern medicine and modern psychology.

It is extremely effective with both physical issues (back pain, headaches, etc) and emotional issues. Issues range from stress, anxiety, phobias, addiction, weight control, and limiting beliefs.

While the human body possesses a natural healing potential, stress and emotional problems can stand in the way, which is where EFT comes in. People who experience benefits from practicing tapping techniques find that it helps clear their mind, focus their attention on the present moment does, and improve their attitude so they have a better chance of overcoming challenges they may face.

Nutrition For Healthy Hair

Whole foods rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc and biotin may help promote a healthy scalp and hair. Add these foods to your grocery cart – think of them as ingredients in a healthy hair recipe!

 

  1. Dark leafy greens. Kale, Swiss chard, spinach and other dark leafy greens are good sources of vitamins A and C, which the body needs to produce the oily substance sebum, a natural conditioner for your hair.
  2. Salmon. Omega-3 fatty acids, of which wild-caught salmon is a top source, are important to a healthy scalp. Salmon (always look for wild Alaskan or sockeye salmon) is also a good source of protein. If you don’t like the taste of fish, try a high-quality fish oil supplement.
  3. Beans and legumes.  They are a good source of protein which helps promote hair growth, as well as iron, biotin and zinc. (Biotin deficiencies can occasionally result in brittle hair.) Another good source of zinc is raw pumpkin seeds or pepitas. Add a small handful per day like you would use nuts.
  4. Nuts. Specific varieties of nuts contain vitamins and minerals that can help promote the health of your scalp. Brazil nuts are a good source of selenium (limit yourself to no more than two Brazil nuts per day). Walnuts provide the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, which may help condition your hair, as well as zinc, which can minimize hair shedding. Cashews, almonds and pecans are other hair-healthy choices. Aim for raw varieties as often as you can, or lightly toast it yourself if an added crunch is preferred.
  5. Eggs. A good source of protein, which helps prevent dry, weak and brittle hair. Choose organic, omega-3 fortified eggs from cage-free hens.

Zinc has always been regarded as one of the main nutrients in the support of healthy hair and skin. Get your highly bioavailable supply here

Avoid Toxins In Personal Care Products

Research by the Environmental Working Group shows that the on average, people use products which contain 250 chemical products that are known carcinogens and endocrine disruptors. Ingredients in lotions are considered safe in small quantities, but eventually, it all adds up.

The skin is the largest organ in the body and it absorbs everything we put on it to a certain degree.

1.Triclosan

It is an antibacterial and antifungal found in soaps, body washes, hand sanitizers, toothpaste and cosmetics.

It can lead to skin sensitivity, liver damage, hormone disruption, and may even cause cancer. While we think we are getting rid of germs, the chemicals disrupt our microbiome and can contribute to antibiotic resistance. Ordinary soap does a good job of cleaning away germs.

2. Parabens

They preservatives used in most cosmetics, skin care products, soaps, cleaning products, baby products to keep them for longer.

Because of their chemical composition, they can cause skin and allergic reactions. Their main effect however, is on the endocrine system. They are believed to collect in breast tissue and can stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. They can also modify the male reproductive system and thus, can damage our DNA.

3. Phthalates

This is another group of preservatives used in soaps, shampoos, cosmetics, beauty and skin care and cleaning products.

And yet again, they are a group of chemicals that mess up the endocrine system. They particularly impact the male reproductive system. They can alter sperm quality and sperm count and damage to the testes.

4. Sodium Lauryth

These are a group of sulphates that make our soaps sudsy and frothy. It is widely used in soaps, body washes, beauty care and cleaning products.

They can lead to severe skin irritations and can be carcinogenic with certain contaminants. It can cause deposits in the brain, heart, lungs and liver.

5. Fragrance

Fragrance is used in soaps, shampoos, beauty care, skin care and cleaning products.

Fragrances cause allergic reactions. They also contribute to respiratory problems including asthma. The chemicals can cause headaches and are known hormonal disruptors.

6. Propylene Glycol

It is found in thousands of cosmetic products to hydrate them. It is found in soaps, shampoos, cleansers, and other beauty products.

This chemical causes skin irritation. It may also cause damage to the kidneys and liver, as well as neurotoxicity in children.

7. Fluoride

Fluoride is found in toothpaste, whitening agents and mouthwash.

It has been found to accumulate in the body and can inhibit thyroid function, contribute to bone disease and is a known carcinogen.

8. Talc

Talc has been used for many years in baby powders, feminine powders and blush. It also used as a lubricant in condoms.

Talc is linked to ovarian cancer, especially when routinely applied to the genital area.

9. Formaldehyde

It is usually used as a preservative in shampoo, nail care, baby products, deodorants, toothpaste, cleaning products, hairspray and cosmetics.

This list could go on and on.

The Main Reasons I am Grateful To Be A Nurse

 

Being a nurse is tough. The job is stressful, the hours are long, and nursing school is scary. Many nurses still face staggering student loan debt that is causing financial strain years after graduation.

Despite the professional challenges, I am thankful to be a nurse. Sometimes it may feel like there is not much to be thankful for, but I am thankful every day that I have had the opportunity to have an impact on somebody’s life.
While most people will be celebrating Thanksgiving, it is an opportune time to reflect on what makes us so grateful.
Each one of us may be grateful for a whole lot of things, but as nurses, we are all grateful for:

1. The impact.
There is nothing more fulfilling than helping patients on a daily basis. Everyone has had that difficult patient, but there’s always that one patient who expresses gratitude and makes all the difference.
Many patients may not always show appreciation, but deep inside we know we are doing a good job.

2. The opportunities.
Despite the shrinking budgets every community needs nurses, and there are many different care settings in which nurses can practice. This creates new opportunities for nurses who wish to make career changes without leaving the profession entirely—and for new graduates to specialize.

3. The people.
You are bound to meet some amazing people during your nursing journey, from whom you will learn valuable lessons. Not only do we meet amazing clients, but teachers, bosses, mentors, and co-workers. We are lucky to be surrounded by such talented people and it is exciting to know that we have these relationships with amazing people.

4. The personal growth.
Although we have considered quitting many times, nursing is what we do and it brings out the best in us. All we need is change our perspective on our job.

5. The respect.
With the violence and aggression shown towards nurses, nursing remains one of the most respected professions. Walking around the grocery store or church, you will always get a friendly greeting from a patient or a family member. It is gratifying to have such a good personal and professional reputation, and we should take care to live up to the trust that people place in us every day.

.
7. The problem solving.
I am thankful for the ability to solve problems for my patients. I really like the good feeling I get when I alert doctors on life threatening complications and participate in the care of patients.

8. The Salary
Although nursing school takes a long time and additional student loan debt, nurses are grateful to be able to support their families and repay the loans. Not a lot of people in many professions can say that, especially when they first enter the job market.

As we approach the holiday season, we must always remember to be grateful for being able to celebrate and be grateful for our profession, family, friends, and health.

Trusted Ways To Boost Your Immunity

The immune system does a great job of defending us against disease-causing microorganisms. But, sometimes there is a problem: A germ invades successfully and makes us sick. How can we therefore, boost our immune system? Diet? Certain vitamins or herbs? Lifestyle changes?

The critical role and complex functions of the immune system in overall health and protection are often underestimated until the immune system is not working properly. Like an army of soldiers, this system has many vital functions and uses the body’s defenses to guard against damage, disease, and infectious organisms that include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. The immune system can also recognize, protect, and destroy abnormal cells derived from host tissues.

The immune system comprises various organs, cells, and proteins.  Apart from the nervous system, the immune system is considered the most complex and multifaceted system in the human body. Its intricate network involves various cells distributed throughout the human body, which move via the lymph stream and the bloodstream.  In some areas, the cells are classified as primary lymphoid organs, where immune cells appear and mature (bone marrow and thymus), and secondary lymphoid organs (lymph nodes, spleen, and gut-associated lymphoid tissue), where mature immune cells interact and respond to antigens.

The idea of immune boosting has become common with more people opting to fight infections without antibiotics, 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. There is still much that researchers don’t know about the intricacies and inter-connectedness of the immune response.

It is also important to note that the body has to distinguish between self and nonself cells. Sometimes the body attacks it’s own cells such as in autoimmune diseases. This is a very complex phenomena very different from when the immune system attacks foreign cells.

As more and more people become proactive about their overall health, health practitioners  are likely to encounter patients seeking guidance about the use of the various nutritional supplements marketed to boost the immune system especially during the cold and flu season. As with any medications, these so-called immune boosters need to be controlled and patients educated about their uses and dangers
Why would cause the immune system to be compromised? Certain factors have been identified, such as poor diet, chronic stress, lack of sleep, specific medical conditions, and the use of certain medications such as corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents used to treat autoimmune disorders, immune-mediated diseases, and transplant patients. Chronic sleep loss is connected not only to an increase in inflammatory markers but also to immunodeficiency. Research has shown that the aging process can affect the immune system as well and that there appears to be a correlation between nutrition and immunity among elderly patients because older individuals tend to eat less, may have less variety in their diets, and experience loss of appetite due to the use of certain medications or medical conditions.

How then, can we boost the immune system?

Your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as these:

 

 

  • Avoid smoking, eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat, exercise regularly. Maintain a healthy weight and control your blood pressure. If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation. Get adequate sleep. Hand washing, simple as it is, remains the best way to avoid infection. Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.

There is some evidence that various nutritional deficiencies — for example, deficiencies of zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, and E — alter immune responses.
Many of the products marketed for the overall enhancement of the immune system contain 1 or more of the vitamins A, B6, C, D, and E, along with zinc and selenium. There  are also numerous complementary products marketed to enhance the immune system as well as to prevent and manage the symptoms most commonly associated with the common cold and flu virus, which may contain one or more of the following: echinacea, elderberry, and zinc.
One of the most critical steps in maintaining overall health and building a strong immune system is to incorporate healthy lifestyle habits into a daily routine.

 
Ideally, eating a healthy and balanced diet is the optimal approach for building and maintaining a strong immune system. People, however elect to use nutritional supplements to ensure that all their nutritional needs are met. Prior to recommending the use of any of these supplements, professionals should screen for possible contraindications and drug or nutrient interactions. Patients with medical conditions or those who take other medications should be encouraged to discuss the use of these supplements with their primary health care providers before using them. While counseling patients about the various products marketed for the immune system, remind patients who use these supplements to always adhere to recommended doses and to use products only as directed. Patients should also be cautioned about taking megadoses of vitamins and to always read labels to check for therapeutic duplications, which may lead to toxicities if they are taking other nutritional supplements.

7 Things I Wish They Taught At Nursing School

As a nursing student, you learn a lot of things about sick people, I mean a lot. You learn everything revolving around sick people. But there is more to being a nurse than taking care of sick people. There are other areas of life that nursing school would do well to include training in these areas to ensure that they’re turning out marketable, employable graduates.

I always wish that my nursing school would’ve better prepared me for my job. Here are some of the things I wish they did:

1. Empathy
Don’t you sometimes meet some nurses who are just not cut out for nursing? Like they did not know that they were going to deal with people who will be sick, scared, worried, confused, in a hurry, or all of the above—and they may act less-than-courteous under the circumstances? Learning how to respond with empathy most often takes place in actual work settings and requires lots of practice.

2. Managing Debt and Personal Finances
Most nursing students and new nurses have school loans and will go on to have a mortgage, car loan, or credit card. Although many may argue that managing personal finances doesn’t exactly fall into the realm of nursing education, the number of students carrying significant debt upon graduation and beyond would be sufficient justification.

3. Flexibility
Things tend to be right and wrong in nursing school; there’s usually a clear right answer and a clear wrong one (don’t we all know that there can be four right answers but you have to look for the most right? Only in nursing school!). In the real-world scenarios on the floor there’s lots of gray and sometimes no clear correct answer. Nursing students should be encouraged to be creative, adjust to changing circumstances, and look for new approaches to client problems.

4. How To Pass The NCLEX!

Really. Nursing is really hard, and you would think after all that you went through getting a license would be a breeze. People fail like four times! Passing the NCLEX simple, not easy, but simple. Nursing schools should just teach people how to pass the exam. In this article, I share some of the skills that one needs to master and which helped me.

5. Communication Skills
Nurses come out of school lacking basic written and verbal communications skills, despite writing all those and assignments making presentations of most of them. Communicating with peers, clients and management is always a challenge. How many times have you made spelling mistakes in that very crucial email to management because you want that promotion or recognition of some sort? We always take talking clearly so others can hear and understand us for granted until you meet a nurse who cannot even communicate and be concise when talking to patients.

6. Job Search and Interview Skills
Nursing remains a sought after career and prospects are always good post graduation. It has however become difficult for nurses in certain areas to get suitable jobs, especially new grads. Nurses struggle to get jobs sometimes due to the skills needed to sell themselves especially in a competitive market. Nursing schools need to offer formal training on job searching and interview skills towards the end of training. With the job market becoming more and more challenging for nurses, industry-specific training would be a welcome addition to any curriculum.

7. Running a nurse-based business

I believe every school to teach students how to be their own bosses if they choose to, not just how to get a job. There will always be enough nurses to service all the facilities out there, but I think nurses should be given the opportunity to go into business as soon as they feel ready to do so and not when they are tired of the bedside.
