    A youthful glow reflects healthy skin that has been well-nourished. Healthy skin can be accomplished with vitamin-enriched anti-aging cream products when your diet alone does not provide enough of certain vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants.

    Here are some vitamins that can help make your skin healthy:

    Vitamin C is one of the better-known anti-oxidants in use today. It has been shown to reduce the damage caused by free radicals. Sun exposure, smoke, and pollution all contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, thus, leading to a wrinkled appearance and other signs of aging. Ingesting foods with a high concentration of Vitamin C, including citrus fruits and vegetables, and taking Vitamin C supplements of 500-1,000 mg are beneficial. Anti-aging moisturizing cream that contains Vitamin C will help achieve healthy skin by forming new collagen.

    Vitamin E, one of the fat-soluble antioxidants, helps reduce sun damage to the skin, as well as reducing production of cancer-causing cells. It is also an effective way to reduce wrinkles and make the skin look and feel smoother. As an oral supplement more is definitely NOT better: take no more than 400 I.U. to avoid serious harmful side effects. When combined with Vitamin C in lotion form, Vitamin E is very useful in protecting against sun damage.

    Vitamin A is necessary to repair and maintain healthy skin tissue. If a person lacks the proper amount of this vitamin, the complexion may become dry and flaky. To avoid this, eat foods that are rich sources of vitamin A, such as fruits and vegetables. Besides getting vitamin A from dietary sources, applying it externally is also helpful. This can take the form of lotions and creams. Used as a component in OTC anti-aging creams (retinol), or in prescription form for treatment of acne (Retin A), Vitamin A is notable for decreasing the amount of lines and wrinkles seen in the skin.

    Vitamin B Complex, including the very important B vitamin, biotin, can be found in many foods such as bananas, eggs, oatmeal and rice. The body makes biotin too. This nutrient helps form nail, skin, and hair cells. A deficiency in this important nutrient may result in inflamed skin, itchiness or dermatitis. Anti-aging creams that contain B vitamins contribute to healthy looking, well-hydrated skin. It is useful in lightening dark spots as well.

    Vitamin K, when used as a cream, is most valuable in reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. It becomes even more beneficial when used in a formula that combines it with Vitamin A.

    Let’s face it, we all want to get natural glowing skin. In this installment of my series of articles on the secrets of beautiful skin, I’m going to give you 3 things you can do if you want to restore that youthful, vibrant glow to your complexion.

    1. Maintain a healthy lifestyle

    Look, you simply cannot expect to get beautiful skin if you never do any exercise, or stuff yourself with refined sugars and junk food all day, or smoke like the devil’s chimney. If your body is under stress, your skin will show it.

    If you want natural glowing skin, get some exercise. It will improve your circulation and strengthen your lungs, getting more oxygen filled blood pumping though your veins. The results will be visible in your skin.

    2. Moisturize and nourish your skin with natural oils

    Dry skin doesn’t look healthy, and it isn’t healthy. One of the big secrets of beautiful skin is to keep your skin properly moisturized.

    Don’t just trust in over the counter cosmetics to achieve this. The mineral oil used as a moisturizing agent in most mainstream cosmetic products provides little benefit to the skin other than coating it to trap existing moisture.

    Instead, use natural skin care products that deeply moisturizes and nourishes your skin. Natural oils and emollients like shea butter and avocado oil provide wonderful benefits for the skin, including the reduction of inflammation, correction of skin tone and increased collagen production.

    3. Help your skin cells to regrow

    How do you get or maintain natural glowing skin? By helping your skin to renew itself. Advances in skin care technology provides us with ingredients like Cynergy TK. This not only helps your skin to product more collagen and elastin, but drastically increases the production of new skin cells.

    Furthermore, skin creams with the powerful antioxidant Coenzyme Q10 also helps to protect cells from free radical damage, while promoting new cell growth.

    These were some more secrets of beautiful skin. Remember to educate yourself and learn about new advances in skin care. Having natural glowing skin is not difficult when you know what to do and what to use for maximum skin benefit.

    Herbs have been being used since long to treat dreaded diseases including cancer. Many alternative care practitioners used herbal and vitamin supplements for treating cancer. These supplements come in form of pills, gels, powder, tea, capsule, or liquid to be added to bath water. Though all the herbal supplements are not safe some herbal and vitamin supplements can help patients undergoing conventional cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

    It is claimed that there are a variety of herbs and vitamins that can prevent, slow down, or fight cancer. Some of them block natural bodily processes including spread of cancer and inflammation. Some herbs can help in killing cancer cells. Different vitamins and herbs may prevent cancer development by blocking mutagens, carcinogens, and tumor promoters.

    There are number of herbs possessing anti-tumor properties. There is little scientific evidence supporting few herbs and there is no proper information about others. A lot more research is needed in this field. Though one cannot rely solely on herbs and vitamins for cancer treatment, they can definitely be used to fight cancer symptoms and side effects of cancer treatment.

    Some vitamins, minerals and herbs, that are said to be beneficial for cancer patients are:

    Aloe, Arnica, Black walnut, Bromelain, Clove, Essiac, Flaxseed, Folic acid or folate, Germanium, Ginger, Asian ginseng, Green tea, Peppermint, Photochemical compounds produced by plants, Pine bark extract, Pokeweed, Sodium, Calcium, Potassium, Red clover, Saw palmetto, Selenium, Sodium bicarbonate, St. Johns wort, Strychnos, Nux-vomica, Tea tree oil, Thuja, Turmeric, Venus flytrap, Vitamin A, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, White birch, Wild yam, Wormwood, Yohimbe, Graviola, Ashwagandha, Berries and berry extracts, Broccoli, Mangosteen, Melatonin, Mushroom and Zinc.

    Risk of Using Herbal and Vitamin Supplements

    There is no proof that taking vitamins can help to prevent or treat cancer. But large doses of vitamins can be toxic and prove harmful. Water-soluble vitamins are generally considered to be safe but they can prove harmful in some cases. High doses of Vitamin C increases the risk of oxalate kidney stones. Vitamin B6 could cause nerve damage, if taken without medical supervision. Fat-soluble Vitamins such as Vitamin A can be toxic if taken in large doses and can cause bone malformation, liver enlargement, anemia, and hair loss. High doses of Vitamin D can lead to calcification in the kidney and blood vessels and osteoporosis. Some herbs can also interfere with conventional cancer treatment. Some herbs can even cause miscarriage if taken in large quantities by pregnant patients. Patients should consult their oncologist before using any herbal or vitamin supplements. It is not safe to rely solely on herbs and vitamin supplements for cancer treatment, as they are not proved to treat the disease.

    Growing support from doctors and the government, in Canada and the USA, has been growing rapidly, bringing a regulated and taxed industry closer to a reality.

    The American College of Physicians (ACP), the second-largest doctors group in the U.S.A., is calling for the government to withdraw the prohibited use of medical marijuana in treating patients. The prominent doctors group says there is ample research supporting cannabis and its medical applications and it is valuable in treating severe weight loss in AIDS patients, and the nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy in cancer patients.

    Medical cannabis has been shown to have established effects in the treatment of nausea, vomiting, premenstrual syndrome, unintentional weight loss, insomnia, and lack of appetite. Other medicinal treatment effects were in the treatment of spasticity, painful conditions, especially neurogenic pain, movement disorders, asthma and glaucoma, to name a few.

    Medical billing services can actually increase your practice’s revenue.

    The revenue your medical practice pulls in is closely related to a large number of factors – and some of them may not be the first to jump into your head. While having a large patient base and offering quality patient care are hugely important, how you run office functions in the practice can make a big difference.

    Even a number of very small factors can have a major impact on your office’s revenue. The idea of streamlining medical practice office functioning has become more popular since the technological age began and computerized systems became more common in businesses. While most doctors’ offices and hospitals are still not using electronic medical records systems, many have chosen medical billing outsourcing as a way of improving office procedures.

    There are a number of ways that medical billing services can streamline the office and actually increase revenue. Though it may seem counterintuitive to pay a third party to collect money owed to you, the division of labor is a smart choice and here assigns a task that most doctors do not specialize in – accounting and billing – to a financial specialist. Also, because the staff at physician medical billing companies like PhyLogic specializes only in medical billing, they have the time to call your patients, properly file paperwork, and make certain that you collect all revenue owed to you. This also saves you the time and money involved in hiring someone to help with billing at the office – or training your existing staff to do the job.

    Medical billing may seem like a huge leap, but accounting reports – and office headaches – will show that it’s a smart step in the right direction.

    About PhyLogic

    PhyLogic Healthcare, LLC, is a specializing in maximizing physician revenue by outsourcing to experts in the United States. Dedicated to their clients and customer service, PhyLogic offers fully customizable plans.

Being referred to as psychodynamic, these therapists and the varieties of therapy they practice vary from other categories, for their overall contemplation of peoples positive suffering and their situations.

    Despite the fact that being unfamiliar with the good and bad of therapy, the approach towards cure ought to be with these factors in mind. In most of the cases, beneficiaries come across the positive results of therapy where as only in a very few one-off cases has there been bad therapy with utter carelessness or abuse of clients. A good or bad therapeutic experience depends to a great extent on the effort taken towards locating and taking services an efficient therapist who could aid the clients in harnessing their potential to the maximum by mingling with them.
