The weather is changing. That is what I noticed this past few days. In the morning it is very hot and in the afternoon, it would rain. The sudden change in the weather can lead to colds, cough and even fever. As they say, the weather is unpredictable, and it is really. Common Colds can lead to fever and other health problems. So my advice to all people is to bring umbrella with you and coats to protect you from the sudden change in the weather.

When you are already infected with colds and even flu, you should always drink plenty of water as much as possible. Water flushes the toxins in your body. Take only medicines that are prescribed my your physicians. You can also drink hot lemonade. Lemonade has been trust ever since to take colds away.

Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals ..not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.

Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks: Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.

60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this article shares it to everyone they know, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.

1) Bacteria - Bacteria is one of the main factors that can lead to acne breakouts. This is especially true if you do not cleanse your face thoroughly at the end of the day. As we go through the day, we are exposed to pollutions, dirt, fumes and etc. Bacteria that are built up on the skin should be eliminated. To do this, it is most effective to use an acne face wash that is aimed at removing bacteria on the skin. This will keep the acne causing bacteria at bay and prevent new breakouts.

2) Excess oil - People with oily skin have the tendency to have acne. Overproduction of oils in the skin can cause the pores to be clogged. This, in combination with bacteria, is the perfect condition for acne to form. To treat acne, you have to keep your skin dry. However, this does not mean to dehydrate your skin. You still need water content to keep your skin moist but you have to cut out the oil. The best treatment for this is to use a product containing salicylic acid. This agent will help to reduce excessive oil on the skin as well as to unclog pores.

3) Hormones - An imbalance in the hormones can be triggered by a number of factors. It can be due to puberty, menstruation, poor diet and stress. To deal with hormone imbalance, it is best to use acne herbal supplements. These supplements are aimed at treating acne and keeping out bodies' composition well balanced. Also, it is safer to consume these herbal supplements than prescriptive medication, as they are natural.
