Schistosomiasis Patients Increases

The lack of medical staff, medicines, and operating costs caused the percentage of patients with schistosomiasis at Lindu District, Sigi District, and District Napu, Poso Regency, Central Sulawesi, increased.

Currently the percentage of patients in both regions were respectively 2.49 percent and 3.79 percent. 1990's figure of less than 1 percent, in the 1950s had about 50 percent.

It is told by Head of District Health Office of Sigi dr Sofyan Mailili, Sunday (27/6) in Palu. The day before, Chief Representative of World Health Organization (WHO) in Indonesia dr Khanchit L with Director General of Disease Control Ministry of Health and Environmental Health Prof. dr Tjandra Yoga Aditama SPP (K) visited the two areas that became endemic area of schistosomiasis.

In that visit, Tjandra Yoga brings several thousand Praziaquantel, schistosomiasis drug, and submitted to the Health Office of Central Sulawesi.

Distributed snail

Schistosomiasis is a disease caused by Schistosoma japonicum worms that spread via snail Oncomelania hupensis linduensis sebulir sized rice. From snails, worms enter the body through the skin. Besides, can also go to other mammals, like cows and buffaloes, to become the next source of infection. To prevent infection, people need to wear boots in the snail habitat.

Symptoms of humans infected with this disease are itching, fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. It continues bulging belly and swollen feet and hands like beri-beri disease. Patients also suffer from anemia, and could end up with liver disorders.

In Sub district Lindu, totaling 139 patients from a total 4824 population. In the laboratory, and schistosomiasis in Lindu Napu each there is only one laboratory worker.

Beware, Strict Diet Cause Fragile Bones

Actress Gywneth Paltrow confessed, she was sentenced to suffer from osteopenia (brittle bones) due to the strict diet he was doing. As an actress, she was required to maintain an ideal weight equipment. Actually if osteopenia is and how dangerous?

Osteopenia is the term used to describe the condition of reduced bone density so that the bones become fragile and not as strong as normal bone. However, osteopenia was not as bad as osteoporosis.

However, osteopenia need to get serious attention because this is a yellow light that will continue to osteoporosis. In general, osteoporosis is more common in older women.

Initially asymptomatic osteopenia. There are times when a new osteopenia is known after the bone fracture. In addition, this condition is usually only known after a bone density scan performed a painless and simple. Investigation performed at the spine, hip, or wrist.

They experience a lack of calcium, drugs kartikosteroid class, smoking, lack of exercise, and presence of eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia, is more at risk of brittle bones. More women than men suffer from osteoporosis.

Regular exercise will also prevent brittle bones. Research has shown that women who exercise regularly experience significant increases in total calcium levels in the body.

Sports should be done since his youth. A good exercise include walking, lifting weights with small dumbbells emphasis on the hips, thighs, back, arms and shoulders.

Vitamin E deficiency signs

According to the book The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vitamins and Minerals, vitamin E deficiency in the long term can cause nerve damage, especially the nerves in the spine. Sometimes it also occurs in the retina of the eye damage.

Vitamin E deficiency should be rare. That's because of the daily food intake of almost all people get 7-11 mg of vitamin E. Even so, it turns out in the U.S. who eat plenty of famous and wealthy, carrying a mild deficiency of vitamin E.

Apart from daily food intake, vitamin E deficiency can also be caused by medical conditions such as:

1. Suffering from cystic fibrosis
Cause, people with this disease can not digest fat well, so it can not absorb enough vitamin E.

2. Suffer from Chron's disease
Patients with this disease can not absorb enough vitamin E through the intestines.

3. Liver disease
Patients with liver disease can not use vitamin E with the right.

4. On a diet low in fat and low calorie
The lack of fat in the body can affect the supply of vitamin E. This is because vitamin E, including fat-soluble vitamins. We need a little fat to absorb vitamin E.

5. Drinking certain drugs
Drinking cholesterol-lowering drugs can reduce the absorption of vitamin E and fat-soluble vitamins other.

Vitamins and Minerals According to the book's Handbook, there are signs of a person's body needs extra vitamin E, which is easily bruised body, heal old wounds, varicose veins, lack of sex drive, infertility and loss of muscle strength.

5 Symptoms Women's Health Disorders Who should really pay attention

Remember my parents to continue to maintain body condition because healthcare is expensive. This is true. Healthy body shape is the dream of all people, including women. However, women are often not aware of precisely who was suffering from the disease. Many symptoms are underrated but has a considerable impact harmful by the body. Here are five symptoms you should watch the health of women.

1. Nails turned white so depressed
Nail will turn white when pressed briefly, but be careful when nails remained white until a few minutes. This could indicate you are exposed to anemia and iron deficiency. "Many women, especially those who regularly experience heavy menstruation, may be affected by anemia but he did not know it," said Dr. Johnston.

Things you can do to overcome this anemia is a blood test done. In addition you should also start eating foods rich in iron such as salmon. But there's one thing to note is you do not take iron supplements without the advice of a doctor.

2. Dry mouth
Dry mouth can also be caused by excess vitamin A. Jacob Carolyn, MD, a dermatologist from Chicago revealed that he had once had a patient who had no idea that he had consumed 20,000 units of vitamin A each day. This amount is four times the amount that's recommended. In normal doses of vitamin A can function to overcome the problems of skin cells. However, excess doses of vitamin A can actually cause dry skin and harms the fetus if you are in a state of pregnancy.

To overcome the dry lips, it can do if you consume supplements is to check the label to ensure that you consume the amount of content to not to overdose. In addition to calculate the amount of vitamin A from supplements, you also have to calculate the amount you consume vitamin A derived from natural sources such as eggs and milk.

3. Yellow eyelids

Eyelid yellow indicates high cholesterol. This occurs because the fat that collects in the upper eyelid continues to combine there. And because the fat is yellow, the spots appeared yellow petals around your eyes, no matter what your skin type.

Steps you can do first is to do a blood test. If you find that high kolestrolmu, eat nutritious foods without fat, do the exercise for 30 minutes per day and taking the drugs recommended by doctors. Another possible way is to remove cholesterol with lasers.

4. Flushed cheeks
Facial which too often can cause peeling like sunburned skin. This is the first sign from rosacea, a skin disorder can be caused by allergies.

Steps that can be done is to use antibiotic cream and avoid caffeine and sunshine.

5. Dark circles under the eyes
Black circle is caused by a lack of sleep. Another thing that causes dark circles under the eyes is due to allergies. Allergies can cause sinusitis which can reduce blood flow into the cavity between the eyes.

Here are some indications of health problems which is common in women. Do not dismiss the above symptoms because of the effect it is also quite dangerous. Prevent illness by knowing the early symptoms.

Vitamin D to think faster

Brain Helath - Besides have a vital role in maintaining adequate bone density so that strong and not easy to osteoporosis, vitamin D apparently also have influence on speed of thinking of us, especially men. This is based on research published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

This health study examined more than 3100 men aged 40 years and over in eight cities in Europe, namely Florence, Leuven, Lodz, Poland; Malmo, Manchester, Santiago de Compostela, Szeged, Hungary, and Estonia.

The researchers took blood samples throughout the adam is to determine levels of vitamin D in the blood. Then the participants must perform three tests to test the speed of thought, namely the visual memory, visual recognition and speed of processing visual information.

The results were quite surprising, their blood levels of vitamin D in low turned out to have worse scores on tests of visual recognition and visual information processing.

One researcher David Lee, PhD, MPH of England's University of Manchester say that the results of this study may be related to geographical conditions for the best time for our bodies to produce vitamin D is when exposed to sunlight is, those who stay in place with little sunlight produced less vitamin D which in turn would affect the results of this research.

Be thankful that we are in a country with abundant sunshine, but even if we are rich in sunlight so what if thinking is still weak too, huh :

Joint pain and gout.

Gout is a metabolic waste material of the body that tend to be toxin, under normal circumstances the production of uric acid and disposal must be balanced, but on certain conditions in the blood uric acid levels can increase. elevated levels of uric acid could be due to uric acid removal process disrupted, causing accumulation in the body, could also be due to the increased production of uric acid. Blood uric acid level is affected by many things, such as:

* Food. Already not a secret anymore if meat especially organ meats, seafood and alcohol contains a lot of purine which causes elevated levels of uric acid in the body.

* Descendants. People with a family history of suffering from a high uric acid more frequently attacked than those without joint pain.

* Impaired kidney. Kidney disorders may affect uric acid levels, this may be due to a decline in the ability to secrete renal uric acid through urine.

If uric acid is high, why?

High levels of uric acid the body can lead to accumulation of uric acid, if the embankment is in joint pain joints could occur, if hell is still a little mending, most just ordinary rheumatic pain, but when it really can make a lot of experience inflammation of the joints characterized by swollen, reddening and severe rheumatic pain.

How is prevention?

* Eat less red meat, especially organ meats, because the innards contain high purine could increase the production of uric acid.

* Reduce the consumption of alcohol. besides making drunk alcohol also makes high uric acid.

* Expand drink. High water concentrations in the body can dissolve uric acid, so before had buried late at first.

In addition to the above steps, according to a publication by Arthritis Care and Research in American cities, that consumption of coffee and tea is also quite effective for lowering uric acid.

If Babies Urine Smell maple syrup

Urine or little urine smell like maple syrup - a sweetener made from the sap of maple trees? Well, yes you may be surprised by the headline above. But this is a real place loh! Medical terms, Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD), which is one of the congenital metabolic disorders (RTC) that is associated with abnormal amino acid in the body.

Although rare, but if not handled immediately, MSUD is already acute in infancy can cause developmental delay and death in the first months of life.

Inhibitory KMB Metabolism

The term of congenital metabolic disorders (RTC) or inborn errors of metabolism may not be familiar to the layman. However, since the term was invented in the RTC in 1908 by Sir Archibald Garrod, until today no less 400 species known diseases associated with metabolic defects. Although categorized as a very rare disease (incidence of each disease ranged 1:100,000) but if counted as one single group of diseases RTC, the incident could reach 1:1000-2500.

"Publication of data on the incidence of the RTC in Indonesia until there is currently no. However, the live birth rate estimated at 4.5 million per year in Indonesia (UNICEF Indonesia in 2005) will get the range of 900-4500 with KMB babies every year, "said dr. Prawitasari gout, SpA from the Department of Pediatrics, Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital, Jakarta.

KMB is a hereditary disorder at the level of genes that cause deficiency, dysfunction of an enzyme or other protein to hamper our metabolism.

Furthermore, a pediatrician who struggle daily in the Division of Nutrition and Metabolic Diseases was added, "This teaching often does not show clinical signs and symptoms specific. KMB manifestations can occur at any age, whether the neonates, children and adults. Symptoms also may be associated with various organs, such as central nervous system, heart, liver and kidney. The clinical manifestations can occur in acute and progressive, slow and gradual until the chronic. In neonates, the clinical manifestations which often occurs as a bad drinking tolerance, respiratory distress, convulsions and vomiting. Given its manifestations are not typical, the RTC in neonates is often too late to be diagnosed. "

Amino Acid Disorders

If the enzymes involved in amino acid metabolism deficiency will lead to substances that are toxic and can eventually cause organ damage.

"Abnormal metabolism of amino acids can occur at any age. But a new manifestation emerge if the process of protein catabolism, for example in the newborn: providing intake is too late (too long of fasting), infancy: changes in intake of foods rich in protein, state of infection, vomiting and poor intake), the onset of puberty: increased growth rate, "said dr. Globule.

Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD)

Itself is included in the RTC MSUD associated with protein metabolism and the amino acid. Classical MSUD Symptoms generally occur in newborns aged 4-7 days with initial symptoms did not want to drink, vomiting, lethargy (weak, very sick).

Clinical symptoms that may occur, neurological abnormalities (neurological), namely in the form of changes in muscle strength (hipotoni/decreases, hipertoni/increase). In addition, seizures and decreased consciousness (encephalopathy), which progressively on days 3 and 5, the comma, and the evidence smells like maple syrup urine has smelled from the beginning of symptoms occurred. Smell of maple syrup is associated with increased levels isoleucine on the body.

"In MSUD the juvenile or late onset (already in childhood) may experience delays in development, but symptoms usually occur when there is a trigger of the cracking process (catabolism) proteins, such as infection, surgery, trauma(injury/accident), another dab -Other. MSUD recessive reduced, indicated by the number of events that is 1:200.000. The success rate of therapy is determined if the treatment has been carried out since the beginning (fifth day of life) and implemented in strict and precise, "bright devotee was traveling and watching movies.


Generally, patients are given:
- A diet that does not contain amino acids that accumulate, and provide protein/amino acids are not formed due to deficiency of an enzyme to block its formation. Due to a disparity in the path of protein catabolism (certain) then given a meal that does not contain any protein.

In MSUD, do not give the amino acid leucine, isoleucine and valine. In other countries there are special formulas designed specifically so it does not contain amino acids, such as MSUD1, MSUD2, phenylalanine-free milk, and so on.

- In the early phase (the newborn) is given carbohydrate (glucose/sugar) and subsequent amino acid-free diet in accordance with katabolismenya pathway disrupted.

- Addition of vitamins and minerals suplematasi necessary (depending on the abnormalities that exist). If proven the existence of a specific vitamin deficiency, can be added vitamins. Additions can not be generalized, again depending on the path which led to disrupted and whether the deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals.

- Fixed monitor child growth and development. Weight and height measurement of weight, circumference of head, and monitoring of development milestones (both motors rough, smooth and languages) should be performed on all children.

- Children who experience the RTC is often delayed growth and development, whether caused by the illness itself or because the intake is less (given the restriction and prohibition of certain substances will limit food choice). For laboratories that do periodic checks to ensure there is no shortage of excess/lack of certain substances in the body caused by disease or therapy.

- If there was suspicion of congenital metabolic disorders may be referred to the Division of Nutrition and Metabolic Diseases, Department of Pediatrics Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital in Jakarta to be evaluated and subsequent handling.

Recognize the Causes of Premature Birth

preterm labor or Premature Birth is the occurrence of delivery before the full gestational age standards, namely in gestational age between 20-36 weeks. Normal pregnancy is 40 weeks duration is calculated from the first day of last menstrual period.

Infants born less months, usually birth weight less than 2,500 grams. These premature babies who may die at birth or in need of intensive care because his vital organs, immature, such as lung, liver, or swallowing reflex.

In Indonesia, 30 percent of preterm births occur. Preterm labor are often not known the reason. But according Dr.Gilberto R. Pereira, experts from the Perinatal children's hospital in Philadelphia, United States, there are several causes of preterm labor. Among these are:

- Cervical or cervix does not close completely so that pregnancy can not be maintained.

- Pre-eclampsia or eclampsia, a condition with complications of pregnancy high blood pressure, release of protein in the urine and swelling in both legs. "If the pregnancy could endanger her mother passed on," said Pereira.

- Placenta previa or location of the placenta was covering the birth canal.

- Failure of fetal growth.

- Infection of the amnion or amniotic membrane.

- Too little amniotic fluid

- Birth of twins

- Forms of abnormal uterine

- Have experienced previous preterm delivery

Symptoms of preterm labor is there are additional amounts of mucus in the vagina, there is a sense of like menstrual cramps that come and go, feels there is pressure with a regular rhythm in the pelvic area, back pain associated with a sense of cramping in the abdomen. Those who experience it must immediately contact the nearest doctor.

To reduce the risk of preterm delivery, pregnant women are advised to regularly check its content so it can show us the disorder. "Premature births could be prevented by improving the health status of mothers," Pereira said in a Premature Infant Care Campaign launch in Jakarta, Thursday (24/6).

Unexpected Causes of Fat [Obesity]

Taken from - Excess calories are not the only cause of weight loss continues to grow. There are many other unexpected factors that make the target weight gain proportionately more difficult to achieve.

1. Sleep Deprivation
There are two issues relating to sleep and obesity. First, the more often you stay up the more likely you are snacking at night which results in extra calories diasup. The second thing is related to chemicals in the body. When we stayed up late, the hormone that triggers appetite will be issued, as a result we will feel hungry when I wake up. This hormone also makes stomach never feels full.

2. Stress
When we are bothered by various problems and the bustle, the body will adapt to how to get the hormones cortisol or stress hormones. This hormone can increase appetite, so it's no wonder when the time deadline or are under stress, we will mengasup more food.

3. Drugs
Antidepressant drugs is one type of drug that can promote weight loss, especially when taken long term. Other drugs that need to watch out for is a cure for mental disorders, hypertension medications, migraine medications, and diabetes.

4. Hyperthyroid
When the thyroid gland (located in the vicinity neck, shaped like a butterfly) are not capable of producing enough thyroid hormones, we will feel the symptoms of fatigue, malaise, and weight increase. When the body lacks the thyroid, the metabolism will slow so that the body converts into fat.

5. Hobbies sweet drinks
Although still debated by experts, in fact, cases of obesity in America continues to increase along with the popularity of sweet drinks in containers. Besides the sweet taste and excessive calories, sugar does not provide any benefit. Therefore, limit the consumption of sweet drinks, including soft and study of water consumed each day.

WHO Give Child Drug Guidelines

World Health Organization (WHO) for the first time issued guidelines for the use of 240 essential drugs for children under the age of 13 years.

These guidelines contain information about the indications of use, dosage and side effects of drugs, including warnings that children should not consume a particular drug. Thick 528-page guide also mentions common drug interactions.

"To be effective, the drug should be chosen carefully and the dose was adjusted for age, weight, and the needs of children," said Dr.Hans Hogerzeil from WHO.

He added, without a guide health workers, including pediatricians would be difficult to prescribe an appropriate medication based on little evidence.

Some countries were already making their own guidelines regarding medications for children, but until now there is no universal standard that nature. WHO created this guide published in English, but the government of each country was allowed to translate in order to be used as a recommendation.

Each year 8.8 million children younger than 5 years died of various diseases, such as diarrhea and pneumonia. In fact, according to the WHO's death could have been prevented with proper medication.

Stomach Cancer Drugs, Healthy Eyes

Cancer Disease - Avastin, a drug often used patients with stomach cancer, was also effective in preventing blindness in patients with macular degeneration caused by age diseases. Drugs are not only effective but also more expensive than existing therapies.

Disease due to aging macular degeneration (age-related macula degeneration / AMD) is one of the main causes of blindness in people aged over 50 years. This disease occurs when the macula, the part of the retina which acts as a central sight, was damaged due to age.

As a result, vision becomes blurred in the middle or even appear blind spot, blind spot, in the middle of the field of view. AMD occurs in two types, wet and dry. Dry type macular degeneration more experienced. At the beginning of this disease attacks only one eye, but gradually be about both.

While the types of wet AMD develops when there are new blood vessels grow in the choroid under the macula. These abnormal vessels leak fluid or blood out. This condition causes the central vision becomes dark.

Until now there is no treatment for dry type macular degeneration. For the wet type macular degeneration, available treatment options, usually in the form of surgery with lasers.

Researchers from three eye care centers in the United Kingdom conducted a study on 131 patients suffering from wet AMD. In the new study compared the effectiveness of Avastin, a drug of stomach cancer, with a standard therapy for AMD's disease. Apparently, Avastin is far more effective than standard therapy, and certainly much cheaper.

Eye experts around the world have been doing experiments with low-dose injections of Avastin in the eye of the patient. They reported success with low cost because one drug can be shared and used by many patients.

Avastin is a drug manufactured by pharmaceutical company Roche. This drug is not registered for the treatment of wet AMD. Therefore, patients are advised to continue standard therapy for AMD to find stronger evidence regarding the ability of Avastin to treat eye disorders

Complex carbohydrates Keep Blood Sugar Concentration

Healthy food - For years people with diabetes are encouraged to avoid sweets, cakes and other sugary foods because it is assumed to be faster elevate blood sugar levels. However, research shows that it is not true. All carbohydrates, including sugar kitchen, affect blood glucose with almost the same way.

The most important thing on carbohydrates is not dependent on the edible kind, but rather on the portion of the diasup. If you consume more carbohydrates than usual, there is a possibility you do not have enough insulin to carry excess inventories of sugar into the cells, which could result in increased blood sugar levels.

One way to help control blood sugar is by eating the same amount of carbohydrates at specific times each day. It's best to consume a mixture of complex and simple carbohydrates.

The benefits of complex carbohydrates (starch) is that the body takes longer to decompose it into sugar. Thus, the sugar enters the bloodstream with a more stable speed. Include carbohydrate foods in a high-fiber mixtures. The more fibers that contained food, the more slowly and the slower the digestion process also increase blood sugar levels.

Source of complex carbohydrates such as whole grains (rice, maize, wheat), tubers, sago, and sebaginya. Simple carbohydrate sugar product itself or the easily digested into sugar, such as honey, syrup, cake, and jam, the faster the body uses as energy so quickly lead to hunger.

Red Rice Keep Blood Sugar

Diabetes mellitus has become a global health problem. Number of patients with this disease continues to increase dramatically, including in Indonesia. One of the preventive efforts that can be done is setting a good diet.

From this strategy, various studies have shown, change the type of food consumed effectively to control blood sugar levels. One way is to replace white rice with brown rice or bread from serelia intact.

Latest publications from Harvard researchers published in the Archives of Internal Medicine states, red rice and foodstuffs from serelia intact is a healthier choice for diabetics because it raised blood sugar slowly.

Knowledge about the benefits of red rice to diabetes is not new, but until now still be the favorite of white rice a lot of people. In a study of 200 000 Americans are known, those who ate white rice has diabetes risk 17 percent higher than those who rarely eat rice.

Conversely, those who ate red rice risk for developing diabetes fell by 11 percent. A similar benefit was found if we replace the plain white rice with serelia intact, including bread or pasta.

Consumption of foodstuffs high in fiber lowered the risk of diabetes because it can lower blood sugar and insulin levels and reduce the risk of poor progression of glucose tolerance in type 2 diabetes.

Like serelia intact, brown rice is also rich in fiber and energy production in stages or known to have a low glycemic index. Therefore, the experts called for 70 percent of our carbohydrate needs met from brown rice or whole serelia.

Women's fear of fat, men focus on sexual pleasure

Modern Women are more confident when entering the meeting room and do a presentation in front of many people. But as she entered the bedroom, it seems there are still many women are still "tormented" by insecurity.

A study quoted by the Daily Mail, Friday (11/06/2010) says, nearly three out of four young women are concerned with distended stomach, which seemed to bring a black cloud over their sex lives. Even they are hesitant and afraid not attractive enough in the eyes when having sex couples. While the participants of the mothers said that the stretch marks become worried. This problem that can ruin the night she felt a passion.

Sex expert Pam Spurr says that women are unable to help themselves to overcome the insecurity.

"They were not given a special container by a modern society that bombards them with images of actress and model who is very glamorous. Women remember the image of the artist's body into her mind, "says Dr Spurr.

Excessive anxiety is making them miserable. The reason, many husbands who would not focus on the body.

"Most men do not think about the lumps and bumps (fat). They think about enjoyment, "said Spurr.

Furthermore, a survey in Cosmopolitan celebration of nearly 3000 women - mostly aged 18 to 40 years - reveals that three out of five women to fake an orgasm or a fake orgasm. And, one percent of these women describe sex is not a disaster. And this proved to just a third of respondents who say they have the best sex of his life.

Another fact say, four out of ten women in London said they rarely had sex, women in the West Midlands proved to be most fond of having an affair with a 20 per cent of them admitted having betrayed their partner, while half of the respondents are involved in a one night stand. However, one third of them felt remorse after treason.

When Baby late for Talk

Baby Health - Some research indicates the cause of the disruption of speech disturbance is the dominant hemisphere. These deviations usually refers to the left brain. In some children are also violations in the right hemisphere, the corpus hearing kalosum and trajectories are related.

Speech delay can also be caused by environmental influences, such as children who get less stimulation or the use of two languages in the family. However, if the cause because the environment, usually the delay that occurred not too heavy.

In normal children without speech and language disorders is also necessary to stimulate speech and language from birth, even stimulation may also be done from within the womb. With the expected stimulation of early speech and language abilities in children is more optimal, so that it can improve communication quality.

Handling late talking can be done in accordance with its cause. In some cases, delays occurred because of this talk of genetic factors or descent. The rest are there problems with the child. And, food allergies can also interfere with brain function, resulting in developmental delay, including delays in talking.

Indeed, the language skills of children are not equal to one another. However, if the child's language development seems to be inhibitory, unlike his peers, is a good idea to contact your doctor immediately. Recognize and treat more quickly would be great.

Guava Fruit, Natural Vitamin C

Healthy Eating - Do not ever forget to take vitamin C if you want to have beautiful skin, bright, healthy and young. Vitamin C is a key ingredient in the formation of collagen which is very important for our skin. And guava is one of the best sources of vitamin C that we can enjoy.

Why? One cup (165 grams) of vitamin C content of guava was nearly five times more than they are at a medium-size oranges, namely 377 mg. This is the same as getting vitamin C five times from our daily needs.

And what relation of vitamin C with beautiful skin? Based on studies that examine the eating patterns of 4,000 American women aged 40-74 years, found that women who consume large amounts of vitamin C have fewer wrinkles than that consumed in small amounts. Therefore, the production of collagen for the better thanks to vitamin C.

Not only that, guava also offer protection against food borne pathogens or dangerous pathogens that are transmitted from food, such as Listeria and Staphylococcus. Thus the results of research conducted by experts from Bangladesh microbiology. Antioxidant content in guava equally great with that found in blueberries and broccoli.

Enjoy drinks by mixing super ½ banana, ½ fruit guava, a handheld strawberries, ½ cup soy milk, and ice cubes. Mash with a blender until well blended. Serve and enjoy as relieving thirst in the scorching afternoon sun.

Drinking three or more cups of tea each day may be healthy by drinking enough water. In addition, there are other additional benefits from tea consumption, which help prevent heart disease and cancer.

Extra benefits of tea come from flavonoids, antioxidants found in many plants, including tea leaves. Various studies indicate flavonoids are effective for preventing cell damage.

Nutrition expert Dr Carrie RUxton and his team from Kings College London, analyzing the results of research on the effects of tea consumption on human health. They found evidence that drinking three cups of tea per day may reduce the risk of heart attack.

Another advantage of drinking tea is to prevent cancer, protect teeth from plaque and strengthens bones. "Drinking tea is better than drinking water because the tea does not just replace the body fluids but also contains antioxidants, so that we can be an extra benefit," said Dr.Ruxton.

During the tea has been thought to actually cause dehydration. "Studies on caffeine was shown at very high doses can cause dehydration, but a cup of tea or strong coffee, we are still getting the benefits of fluid replacement," he said.

However, the tea can also disturb the absorption of iron from food. Therefore, people who suffer from anemia is not advised to drink tea at meals.

Do not Fear Dinner

According to Kelly Brownell, PhD, Director of the Center for Eating and Weight Disorders at Yale Center Agency, the U.S., when you live your diet, avoid eating late to lose weight is a wrong assumption. It is important you know, if dinner is removed, then replaced it with a light snack to keep hunger and eat snacks that contain high calories, so weight is not going down.

"The hunger that comes from non-dinner can disrupt your sleep. Sometimes what happens is skipped dinner, but finally woke up at midnight because it was hungry and snacked on food that should not be eaten, such as cakes, biscuits, instant noodles even. If it's like this weight body just soared, "said Brownell.

Habit no dinner could also result in the emergence of complaints body uncomfortable, hungry, or even gastric disorders (gastritis).

Then, when the right time for dinner? What time is your dinner should not be ascertained with certainty. However, with respect to quality of sleep, try to time dinner was not too near bedtime. At least two hours before bedtime.

"Try to have dinner at least 6-7 nights, especially for your regular sleep pattern, and used to sleeping at night 90-10," Brownell said.

If you sleep too close to dinner, could experience stomach bloating, especially for people with stomach acids easier ride. This condition can make abdominal pain and discomfort. As a result, you had trouble sleeping.

In essence, at night the body processes slow. And, if the channel is still working hard, of course will interfere with your rest time. All you need to know, when the rest of the body is the body time to regenerate cells. If the regeneration of body cells is interrupted, this condition can negatively affect health.

Do Stuck Myth

Want to trim, do not eat rice at night. Is it true that opinion? At night, not a lot of body movement. So, you do not need a lot of carbohydrates. However, it does not mean should not eat rice. The rice is not taboo to eat. All you have to do is look at the types and portion it.

"To improve rice quality, choose white rice/brown rice are still skin epidermis. Menu eating healthy is that containing carbohydrates, protein, and low in fat, and contain minerals and vitamins," said Brownell suggested.

There are medical studies that reveal the composition should rendak fat dinner, but high in carbohydrates. Precise?

Opinion was inaccurate, that need to be, what your activities after dinner? If you do not have any activity, other than rest at night, intake of carbohydrates that can be turned into energy, does not need much. At bedtime, do not you do not move, so did not need a lot of carbohydrates. If you are accustomed to eating rice portions should be no more than 100 grams.

If you were hungry after dinner, should eat fruits, like apples or bananas.

In addition, avoid caffeine and alcohol consumption because it can interfere with sleep quality. Alcohol can make the sleepy, but can reach the depth of sleep that they should. Avoid drinking too much because it causes waking to urinate. So that it can make you wake up, and the desire to eat can come back.

In essence, the right calories depending on calorie needs someone. Generally, the range of calories at dinner between 300-400 calories.

In addition, there are several myths or assumptions about the dinner can be misleading. Among other things, is it true you should avoid drinking ice water at dinner, if you want to lose weight does not rise.

Brownell explained, this assumption has no basis. Water contains no calories. However, the digestive enzyme functioning both in normal body temperature. So, when we drank ice water, then enzin digestion can not function maximally to digest food.

In addition, if true intake should eat only fruits night? "Be careful, if dinner is replaced with a snack of fruit, with notes on the night did not do any activity. Basically, eating is an activity to supply the body's metabolism of the body, replacing damaged cells, physical activity, and others."

If there is no supply, so will not be able to move because of famine, which will be compensated by forming the body of sugar from the body's own reserves. Impact, disturbed metabolism, and will arise complaint is not feeling well, can arise even heartburn.

But, fruit is usually used as a light snack when hunger arises before bed. However, you should still eat fruit at dinner. Vary by making a fruit salad plus a sprinkling of walnuts or almonds, or fruit can be added in the pasta salad.

Epilepsy may recur at any time

Epileptic seizures can occur at any time without recognizing places. As experienced by Calvin (28), residents of Taman Sari, who suffered epileptic seizures while driving dozens of participants of the road to graze leisurely in order to alert the month at the Bung Karno Jakarta, Sunday (06/20/2010) yesterday.

Manifestations such as seizures or epilepsy may lose consciousness instantly. "Seizures can occur anytime and anywhere, including while driving or swimming," said Dr. Andrew Harry, SPS (K), the neurologist, when contacted

Epilepsy, according to the Mayo Clinic, is a disorder of abnormal patterns of activity of brain cells, similar to electric short circuit. Had abnormal signals cause temporary changes in behavior sensation, movement, or consciousness.

Although dangerous, actually epileptic seizures can be controlled with medication. "The primary function of epilepsy drugs are the cells lining the brain in order to avoid contact. If there was contact, the result is a seizure," explains Dr. Andreas.

Selection of drug and dosage should be done under the supervision of a physician. "This type of medicine should be tailored to the cause. What is important patients taking the medicine must be disciplined in order epilepsinya not recur," said a doctor who practiced at RS Gading Pluit, Jakarta, this.

With controlled epileptic seizures, people with epilepsy can perform daily activities well, doing well in school and at work.

Blood Pressure Drugs, Cancer Risk

Jakarta - Using the popular drug to increase blood pressure and heart failure associated with at least an increased risk of heart disease.

These drugs known as angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs), and medicines including telmisartan Micardis), losartan (Cozaar, Hyzaar), valsartan (Diovan), and candesartan (Atacand).

Overall, the researchers observed an experiment on 223 000 patients. "Patients treated with ARBs, approximately 10% experienced an increase in cancer, relative to those not given medication," said Dr. Ilke Sipahi, assistant professor of medicine at Case Western Reserce University. He wrote this report in the journal Lancet Oncology, 14th edition June.

Although there was an increased risk, researchers made a note that there is little increase in the number of deaths from cancer will ARB in which users are using the ARB 1.8%, 1.6% of them experience death. This is a distinction that is not too significant.

Individuals who conduct these trials, 85.7%, using the ARB telmisartan (Micardis) where others consume ARB like losartan, valsartan, and candesartan.

"Experimental studies using animal models of cancer cells and has been implicated in the blockage of angiotensin system, which stimulates the growth of tumor cells," said Sipahi. "Evidence from animal studies indicate that angiotensin receptor blockage can stimulate tumor growth by promoting the formation of new blood vessels in tumors."

But the evidence that ARBs could contribute significantly in the growth of cancer remains unclear, he said. These findings only show relations, not causal.

Dr Hwyda Arafat, who has conducted research on the angiotensin system and pancreatic cancer, says there is some evidence from animal models that the ARB can prevent cancer growth.

But it is also possible that treatment with an ARB can lead to cancerous growth, said Arafat, who is also professor of surgery, pathology, anatomy and cellular biology at Thomas Jefferson University. ARB treatment can increase the amount of angiotensin freely in and around the cells and allows an effect on tumors.

3 Most Fatal Mistakes in dieting

Mistaken about the diet is to eat less to lose weight. In the end, the diet is close to activities that harm the body, with a weight that would not go down. Or if it falls, in the near future will rise again. This is called the yo-yo diet.

If you tend to drop weight easily and dramatically, do not think your diet is correct. So no error occurs, it helps to know a fatal error in the diet is very often experienced by dieters. Anything?

Here is Denny Santoso S. Kom, SAC.DIP, SCN, Sport Nutritionist Indonesian elaborated to you by Diet Secrets book.

Holding the Hungry

Eating a lot can gain weight. Therefore, we try to hold hunger or even not eating. To starve can decrease the body's metabolism, which then slowed down fat burning. That's all deplete our energy. To carry out daily activities, the body became less fit and sluggish.

Hunger is one sign that the stomach is empty and depleted blood sugar. Though both are needed by the brain. If the hunger was also "cured", the head so dizzy. This will also occur in those who eat only once or twice a day. The truth is that eating 5-6 times a day, three times the normal meals and snacks three times to boost your metabolism remains high.

Normally it three times a day, but in reality, the body is designed to eat more than three times a day. Feeling hungry between meals is great because that usually causes the body is filled with fast food, namely a high-calorie foods that are not filling. Fill the hungry this time degan high nutritious snacks, such as apples, skim milk, almonds, and so forth.

Skip breakfast (no breakfast)

Was not done intentionally, did not get done, not accustomed to doing whatever reason, turned out to skip breakfast so often happens. Breakfast is the most important meal time for the body. After eight hours of sleep without the intake of nutrients, the body requires nutrients derived from the breakfast. Skipping breakfast means exposing the body in the catabolic phase, ie, the body attempts to take the available energy in the muscles.

No Dinner

It's time to sleep, we do not require large amounts of calories, especially carbohydrates in high levels. But, we need a lot of protein because during sleep, growth hormone will be used to repair all body cells are damaged.

Therefore, make sure your protein intake is adequate. Eat protein, approximately 2-3 hours before bed and carbohydrates 4 hours before bedtime. Also, it is suggested taking casein protein before bed for a slower absorption.

Fat People At Risk Asthma

If weight loss occurs continuously up to obesity, it is quite likely a person will suffer from asthma. Risk of asthma in the fat three times higher than people of normal body weight. These trends continue to rise in recent decades.

'Dr.Jun Ma' from California, United States, tracked links asthma and obesity by looking at survey data of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in 2005-2006 involving 4500 men and women. One third of respondents are overweight and one third obesity.

Approximately 41 percent of respondents have some type of allergy, and 8 percent had asthma. During this allergy and asthma are closely related. Meanwhile, 12 percent of people who are overweight suffer from asthma, this number is bigger than people whose weight is normal (6 percent).

Although obese people are statistically at greater risk of asthma, but not yet known exactly how the two things that could be related. Some experts assess low levels of inflammatory factors that occur when a person suffers from obesity to be a triggering factor.

Another theory states that the factors of insulin resistance occurs when the body weight increase may explain the relationship the two. Insulin resistance is a condition before the occurrence of diabetes.

So far, more visits with asthma as a disease inherited in families. People with allergies have asthma at high risk. Asthma is marked symptoms of cough, breathing sounds (wheezing). Cough or runny nose often occurs in the middle of the night until morning.

Grape juice is useful to strengthen memory

Everyone would have wanted his memory to be strong, or clever. but how?

Of course we should eat foods that contain many nutrients, but on this occasion we want to share tips to strengthen your memory. what it is, Grape Juice.

Grape juice can reduce the risk of memory decline. However, if the wine in a juice, must or wine purple (purple grape). This is based on research conducted by a team from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio, United States.

The study was conducted involving 12 people who experience memory decline. During the 12 weeks they regularly consume purple grape juice. Participants who engaged research, also regular memory tests over three months. The result is visible progress rapidly enough memory after they underwent several tests of mental and memory. Researcher who is a psychiatrist from the University of Cincinnati certain antioxidants found in wine making has improved their memory.

"The test results of participants showed an increase of short-term memory and non-verbal after 12 weeks of consuming a mixture of grape juice without any," said Dr. Robert Krikorian, chief researcher at the University of Cincinnati.

This study strengthens the theory that the foods that contain high antioxidants can prevent the decrease of brain function and slow memory decline. Dr. Krikorian experimenting with purple grape juice on the parents who experience memory problems between the ages of 75 to 80 years.[]

Sex Is Not Just Fulfillment Needs of Men

Not all couples (married couple) have a happy sexual experiences. In this case, sexual satisfaction is the measure of his happiness. Because, there are many couples who lack knowledge about sex. Generally, couples need only look at sex than men who have met the wife.

Many consequences of the lack of knowledge and lack of openness about sexual relationships. Couples, or one of them, do not feel happy and fulfilled, especially women who are more difficult to experience orgasm than men. The impact is not just a problem of sex life, but also to the quality of relationships and domesticity.

Chairman of the Association of Indonesian Seksologi Prof. Dr. Dr. Wimpie Pangkahila, SpAnd, FAACS, explains the difficulties women to orgasm due to various things. But even more important to note is that couples understand that women are not maids sex. That is, sex in a conjugal relationship is not just fulfilling the biological needs of man without regard to the needs of women.

"If necessary, the man who made the waiter because it is harder to make women orgasm. The man orgasm more easily because of its prominent and easily aroused penis, while the female sex is difficult to achieve. Therefore, the position of women in sexual relationships is important," said Prof. Wimpie in talkshows "Sexual Happiness Moot Erection of Sub-Optimal", which is held by PT Pfizer Indonesia in Jakarta, some time ago.

According to Prof. Wimpie, men need to find the stimulation to the sensitive part of women. In addition to regulate a position to provide stimulation and sexual satisfaction of women, violent erections in men also affect women's sexual satisfaction.

"Women can multiple orgasm, as long as man can not manage an erection and quick ejaculation," he added.

In discussions exposure to say, besides stimulation, position, and erection, sex couples will also depend on the emotions awakened. Open communication is key. Sex education to be the solution earliest. Couples need to be more open to understand the various issues surrounding sexual assault.

This mindset is also affected because with a good understanding of sex, men do not merely ask serviced (sexual) from his wife, but also gives happiness to his wife, with a more open-known women's sexual needs.

Vitamin B, Prevent Lung Cancer

Vitamin B, Prevent Lung Cancer - Vitamin B has been more famous for its benefits to maintaining brain health. But the latest study showed vitamin B also lowers the risk of lung cancer, even in smokers.

The study of 400,000 people showed, vitamin B6 and amino acids in the body methionin enough to reduce the risk of lung cancer by half. However, the experts emphasized that quitting smoking is far more effective to prevent lung cancer.

"Increasing intake of vitamin B will never be the same effect as if we quit smoking," said Dr.Panagiota Mitrou from the World Cancer Research Fund, one of the researchers.

Research of this nature is still early of course require further research to prove whether the vitamins are widely available in nuts, fish, or meat is indeed effective in preventing lung cancer.

Nevertheless, the ex-smokers or people who have never smoked can still do something positive, such as vitamin B-sufficient, to reduce the risk of lung cancer.

At that time women usually menstrasi cycle will also hormonal changes that can cause acne.

3. Overactive oil glands

Oil glands that are too excessive this could be possible because of food or genetics it has become a sufferer of acne. With the emergence of many oil glands oil glands will eat more so that the possibility of its follicle and pore blockage of skin pores would be a lot. Acne that appears would be a lot.

4. Pile of dead skin cells

Dead skin that accumulate or accumulate it will lead to clogged follicles and pores clogged her pores. As I have explained above this can cause acne because there is no way out for the oil glands and causes formation of blackheads. If severe acne can be a bacterial infection including acne.

5. Bacteria in the pores of skin pores

8. Birth control pills

9. Environments that contain high levels of chlorine (chlorine), especially chlorinated dioxins, are that can cause severe acne called Chloracne.

Several kinds of hormones are also often associated as a cause of acne. Androgens such as testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), insulit-like growth factor (IGF-I), and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS).

Causes of Acne

Acne in adulthood is generally caused by sebum, the oil substance produced by sebaceous glands. Sebum the pores close, and then attract the bacteria and cause inflammation. For some adults, acne caused by overly sensitive to androgens (male hormones). But the imbalance of estrogen hormones in men and women can also cause acne. For women, this can occur during pregnancy, pre-menopause and menopause. Some drugs, such as corticosteroids and cosmetics on skin buildup could also spark a pimple.

Handling Acne

Easy bother managing acne in adulthood. Most free drug on the market designed to address adolescent acne to oily skin, which is not suitable for mature skin that tends to dry. To get the best care needed patience and testing. Jonette recommend to try:

The fourth level is marked by a bump that comes out after defecation can not go alone, so that should be helped to enter it again. In fact, dr. Niko M. Manaf add a fifth gradation, when the lump can not be pushed back. This occurs because the process of fibrosis (hardening) or the formation of thrombosis (blood clotting). At this level, patients are usually extremely painful.

Differences in levels of hemorrhoids is then differentiate how to handle it. For mild cases are usually quite controlled by drinking, eating high-fiber menu, and defecating on a regular basis. Creams containing corticosteroid drugs and materials of local anesthetic can reduce swelling and pain. However, the possibility of re-emergence of hemorrhoids is still wide open.

More severe hemorrhoid can be overcome by the binding of the swollen part with rubber in order to "die" and off by itself. However, how binding of the base of the hemorrhoid is already quite outdated and only a limited circle who is still practicing. Its success could not be guaranteed, it will often lead to infection or bleeding torturing extraordinary.

Binding artery

If reluctant or afraid to undergo surgery, the patient can also choose non-operative measures. Among others, these are quite modern and has been accepted in the medical world is sclerotherapy (injecting a liquid irritant). In this way the swollen blood vessels will experience shrinkage. Or, by using Doppler ultrasound Transproctoscopie Haemorrhoidal Artery Ligation (TDUHAL) which has been developed in Australia. Implementation of this method is quite simple; patients underwent only the binding act of the arteries that leads to swelling of hemorrhoid.

TDUHAL method is typical of the tools he used Doppler ultrasound and its supporting equipment. In the sophisticated and expensive equipment have doppler transducer, equipped with sensors such loudspeakers. With the help of these tools, the doctor can listen to the sound pulse so that it can know where the troubled artery. In front of the Doppler transducer, there are small windows and lamps. From this hole doctors were doing was binding on the arterial problem. Binding point approximately 10 cm from the anus.

With the introduction of therapy in the form of sedation to prevent anxiety, this action only takes 15 minutes plus to recover from sedation for about 30 minutes. "Anesthesia is not required and relatively pain is not too disturbing," said dr. Henry Santoso, Indonesia surgeon Procto Center (PCI) who practice TDUHAL method.

Malaria vaccine, Lower Level Infection

CHICAGO, MONDAY - malaria vaccine being tested in phase can reduce infection rates and disease in children up to 53-65 percent in two clinical trials conducted in Africa. Efforts to develop a vaccine for the deadly disease has been conducted in various research for more than 70 years old.

"This is the first candidate malaria vaccine showed significant protection based on the results of laboratory tests and field-based clinical studies," said William Collins and John Barnwell of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Centers for Disease and Prevention) in his writings on the New England Journal of Medicine, Monday (8/12) in Chicago, U.S.

The vaccine was first developed by GlaxoSmithKline, an international pharmaceutical company, the late 1980s, and has been tested to the volunteers in the United States.

Malaria transmitted by mosquito bites, and each year kills about one million people and infects 250 million people. "Malaria vaccine is difficult to develop because there are several stages of the disease," said the child's allergist and immunologist from the Medical Faculty University of Indonesia-Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital, Zakiudin Munazir, yesterday in Jakarta.

Watch out, Malaria Cause the Anemia !

Malaria is an infectious disease caused by Plasmodium parasites, which live and breed in human red blood cells. The disease is transmitted through the bite of female Anopheles mosquitoes and malaria parasites containing malaria parasite that is transmitted through the bite of a healthy person.

Malaria is dangerous because it causes anemia or blood deficiency. This is because red blood cells are destroyed much damaged by Plasmodium and contribute to maternal mortality. This disease can also cause severe malaria resulting in coma, multiple organ failure, and cause of death.

Sourced Animals for Disease Control Director Directorate of Disease Control Ministry of Health and Environmental Rita Kusriastuti, in commemoration of World Malaria Day, at the Building Department of Health, Jakarta, Wednesday (22 / 4), states, the disease usually attacks people who lived in the area that have a lot of standing water or suitable breeding places for the proliferation of malaria mosquitoes in malaria endemic area. "Many areas in Indonesia including endemic malaria," he added.

People can obtain further information about malaria at health centers, such as health centers, posmaldes, at both the provincial health office and district or city, and the Health Department, said Rita. Information on malaria can also be obtained through the extension of malaria, such as leaflets, booklets, and manuals.
