Curing scabies with out prescribed or recommended drugs has not yet been possible. Still one can take some measures in order to prevent the re infecting of the family or them selves. Simple measured like washing all clothing, bedding and towels in hot water can be taken. Again, another thing that is recommended is actually drying the clothes with a dryer. It is very good and actually indicated to use the medication prescribed by the doctor. There are though risks of chemical irritation of the skin if the drugs are used more than they should. Medication like antihistamines can also be used to treat itching. One of the best available now for people is benadryl. Another action that is very indicated to be done is the cutting of the nails. Afterwards it is very indicated to properly and thoroughly wash the hands in order to remove any mites or eggs that might be present. It is a very good thing to also clean the house. Vacuuming rugs, furniture, and bedding is actually indicated in such cases; afterwards the vacuum cleaner bag must be thrown in order to completely get read of the mites that cause scabies. Treating scabies involves two types of medication: topical cream to treat the scabies and anti itch medication for relief. Elimite is one of the best on most used medication in the fight against scabies mites. Treatment involves the covering of the whole body with the cream, starting from the head down to the bottom of the feet. The time it should be left to best take effect is a period between 10 to 14 hours after completing a shower. The best thing to do would be to use the cream just before bed time and wash it off in the morning. The treatment must go on for a week. The best thing about this type of treatment is that it can be used even on children as young as 2 month old. A wide variety of anti itch medications are available for curing scabies. Regardless if they are infected or not other members of the family should also use the cream in order to best prevent the appearance of scabies. In the case of children that attend day care and are in close contact with both staff and other children, medication must also be used to again prevent the development of scabies. In some cases the rash can actually become infected. This is on top of the scabies that the patient is suffering from. To be able to also cure the infection the patient must take oral antibiotic or use an ointment applied on the area. If any person develops severe rashes, has terrible itching, or any lesions what so ever that suggest that scabies is involved, a doctor must be seen immediately. Self treatment in this cases is not at all recommended for the well being of the patient.

How can i lower health risks of the atkins diet while on the atkins diet?
i heard the atkins diet is a very effective diet, but there are a lot of severe health risks that come with it. some are dehydration, high blood pressure, and other things like that.
is there any way to lower the health risks while on the diet?
There is no better way to bring the body to the state of optimal health than with Atkins low carb way of eating. Atkins doesn't cause high blood pressure, high blood sugar or high cholesterol, it cures it. It is actually dangerous to take meds that lower these levels and do Atkins at the same time because the levels will become abnormally, dangerously low. Atkins does cause dehydration the first few months til the body acclimates but that can be controlled with fluid intake.
U.S. government guidelines were changed 35 years ago to suggest we lower our fat intake & increase our carb intake. American society followed these recommendations & lowered their fat intake by 11% & increased their carb consumption. In this same time frame obesity, diabetes, heart disease, thyroid dysfunctions are all at epidemic levels. Most of this is caused by a high carb diet NOT a low carb diet. Through their direct effects on insulin & blood sugar, refined carbohydrates, starches & sugars are the dietary cause of coronary heart disease & diabetes.
Your body requires fats & protein, you will die without them. You will die if you eat protein without fat. You do not require carbohydrates. The body can manufacture all it needs from the protein/fat combination.
A low carbohydrate diet is a high fat diet. The protein should only be a little higher than adequate. Although it is completely possible to live on a fat/protein only diet for long term (as proven by research done in a hospital setting) it becomes boring fairly quickly. Luckily many vegetables & some fruits, nuts & seeds are low in carbs and greatly expand the diet. Most long term low carbers eat as many, if not more non starchy vegetables than vegetarians.
Glucose is the bodies preferred fuel (if you want to get technical, it actually burns alcohol most efficiently, but that doesn't make it any healthier for the body than carbs), the body can convert 100% of carbs, 58% of protein & 10% of dietary fat into glucose. The body can also be fueled by fat (dietary fat & fat cells) but only in the absence of carbs. Your brain actually prefers (* reference info) to be fueled by ketones (part of the fat burning process), only the heart requires glucose, but glucose can be easily converted from excess protein if needed or dietary fat.
IF a person eats sufficient fat & protein & minimal carbs, they can become very healthy. Free of blood sugar health problems, high blood pressure, health problems associated with high cholesterol, obesity health problems. Anything less that 9 grams of carbs per hour controls insulin and is considered low carb (up to 144 grams per day).
Simple carbohydrates trigger insulin. High insulin levels unbalance other hormones. Controlling insulin levels balances out other hormones & allows the body to function properly.
The link between saturated fats and heart health is based on faulty science. Dietary fat, whether saturated or not, is not a cause of obesity, heart disease, or any other chronic disease.
Plaque build up in the arteries is more attributable to carb consumption than dietary fats, which seems to be the conclusion of the following study. Carb consumption raises triglycerides & VLDL (bad cholesterol). Fats raise the HDL (good cholesterol). High triglyceride levels & low HDL levels are an indicator of plaque & glycation - the precursors to a heart attack & heart disease.
study from the Oxford group examining the postprandial (after-eating) effects of a low-fat vs. low-carbohydrate diet. (Roberts R et al, 2008)
Postprandial lipoproteins, you'd think, would be plentiful after ingesting a large quantity of fat, since fat must be absorbed via chylomicrons into the bloodstream. But it's carbohydrates that figure most prominently in determining the pattern and magnitude of postprandial triglycerides and lipoproteins. Much of this effect develops by way of de novo lipogenesis, the generation of new lipoproteins like VLDL after carbohydrate ingestion.
The brain gets its energy from ketone bodies when insufficient glucose is available. After blood glucose is lowered for 3 days, the brain gets 30% of its energy from ketone bodies. After 40 days, this goes up to 70% (during the initial stages the brain does not burn ketones, since they are an important substrate for lipid synthesis in the brain). In time the brain reduces its glucose requirements from 120g to 40g per day.
Ketones have been described as "magic" in their ability to increase metabolic efficiency, while decreasing production of free radicals, the damaging byproducts of normal metabolism. The heart and brain operate 25% more efficiently using ketones as a source of energy
Is unintentional weight loss not actually due to dieting something to worry about?
I am not trying to lose weight. I am not dieting. I don't notice anything different in my eating habits.
Yes. Unintentional weight loss can be from anything from a thyroid disorder (hyperthyroidism) to diabetes.
My brother had lost 15 lbs in 3 months and was not on any diet. He had Hodgkin's Disease. He is cured and feeling healthing.
Any unexplained weight loss needs to be presented to your doctor. He will run the appropriate blood work and other tests to rule out any disorders.

TMJ Syndrome Symptoms and Signs
Pain in the facial muscles and jaw joints may radiate to the neck or shoulders. Joints may be overstretched. You may experience muscle spasms from TMJ syndrome. You may feel pain every time you talk, chew, or yawn. Pain usually appears in the joint itself, in front of the ear, but it may move elsewhere in the skull, face, or jaw and lead to headaches, dizziness, and even migraines.
TMJ syndrome may cause ear pain, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), and hearing loss. Sometimes people mistake TMJ pain for an ear problem, such as an ear infection, when the ear is not the problem at all.
When the joints move, you may hear sounds, such as clicking, grating, and/or popping. Others may also be able to hear the sounds. Clicking and popping are common. This means the disc may be in an abnormal position. Sometimes no treatment is needed if the sounds give you no pain.
Your face and mouth may swell on the affected side.
The jaw may lock wide open (then it is dislocated), or it may not open fully at all. Also, upon opening, the lower jaw may deviate to one side. You may find yourself favoring one painful side or the other by opening your jaw awkwardly. These changes could be sudden. Your teeth may not fit properly together, and your bite may feel odd.
You may have trouble swallowing because of the muscle spasms.
Headache and dizziness may be caused by TMJ syndrome. You may feel nauseous or vomit.

How does one get hypo thyroid and are there any natural CURES?
I know someone who was diagnosed with hypo thyroid. Of course she was given a prescription for the diagnosis, but she wants some natural cures. Any ideas?
Here are some ideas to heal your friends condition. Also be sure to do colon and liver cleanse to clean out the toxins in the blood.
Cause: Hypothyroidism can be caused by food allergies, excess stress, environmental toxins, insufficient exercise, B vitamin deficiencies, lack of iron, lack of digestive enzymes, liver disease, hormone imbalances, and/or parasites. All of these factors need to be screened for and addressed before lasting relief can be achieved.
Sulfa drugs, lithium, synthetic estrogen, and antihistamines can exacerbate hypothyroidism symptoms. In addition, if you are on thyroid medication, increase calcium supplementation to reduce the risk of bone loss.
Low thyroid function may also be due to Hashimoto`s disease, a condition in which the body becomes allergic to its own thyroid gland and forms antibodies that attack it, thus lowering thyroid hormone output.
Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet, emphasizing foods that are naturally high in iodine such as fish, kelp, vegetables, and root vegetables (such as potatoes). Also, increase your daily consumption of foods rich in vitamin B complex, such as whole grains and raw nuts and seeds, and foods rich in vitamin A, such as dark green and yellow vegetables. But avoid foods that slow down production of thyroid hormone, such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard greens, broccoli, turnips, kale, spinach, peaches, and pears.
Herbs: Mild cases of hypothyroidism can be helped by herbal bitters such as gentian or mugwort, while constipation due to low thyroid function can be improved by yellowdock, butternut, or cascara sagrada. St. John`s wort can also be helpful.
Homeopathy: Calc carb. in a dose of 1M once a day is very useful for treating hypothyroidism and improving overall thyroid function.
Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. I suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.
Lifestyle: Regular aerobic exercise can play an important role in helping to regulate thyroid hormone production.
Nutritional Supplementation: Organic thyroid glandular extracts can help restore normal thyroid function, but should only be used under the supervision of your physician. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A, vitamin B complex, essential fatty acids, iodine, kelp, calcium, magnesium, and zinc.
Alternative Professional Care: If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating hypothyroidism include: Acupuncture, Biofeedback Training, Cell Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Homeopathy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Osteopathy, Qigong, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga.
Best of health to both of you
