According to Dr Bilali Camara, data has shown that by the end of 2015, no fewer than 800,000 people living with HIV and AIDS are on anti-retroviral treatment.

It really works especially the last tips which I gave a try yesterday.

This purging cure is also helpful in kids, it is a perfect baby purging solution although home remedies can not override the doctors prescription. 



Natural Remedies for Purging


Carrot and Mint "Juice" can help stop purging (Upset Stomach)

Boil four sliced carrots, four cups of water, and one teaspoon of dried peppermint or one peppermint teabag.

It might sound iffy, but this concoction is helpful if you're suffering from the winter flu; the carrot provides nourishment and peppermint soothes your upset stomach.  
Turn the heat to medium-low and cook about 15 minutes or until carrots are soft. 
If you're using a teabag, remove it, then blend the mixture until smooth and enjoy! You can also add a pinch of ground ginger to further soothe, or a squeeze of lemon juice for flavor. 

Rice Tea Alleviates an Upset Stomach

To settle an upset stomach or stop diarrhea, make a rice "tea." Boil 1/2 cup of rice in six cups of water for about 15 minutes. Strain out the rice, then flavor the water with a dash of honey or sugar and drink warm.


CRAP Diet Is Good for an Upset Stomach


If you're feeling constipated, try the CRAP diet: It stands for "cherries, raisins, apricots, and prunes," all fiber-friendly foods that should get your system moving and ease your upset stomach.

Burnt Toast Settles an Upset Stomach


You know that toast is good for an upset stomach, but burnt toast is even better because the char absorbs toxins that are making you feel ill. 

Add a smear of jelly to make it more palatable.



Fennel Makes an Upset Stomach Feel Better


Whether it's indigestion or gas and bloating, fennel can help. Sip a fennel tea, chew on a few fennel seeds or crunch on some raw. It supports digestion, reduces gas, helps with cramping, and reduces nausea from an upset stomach.

Apple Cider Vinegar Soothes an Purge / Upset Stomach


Whether easing hiccups or soothing a sore throat, is there anything apple cider vinegar can't do? This popular home remedy may also calm an angry tummy. A mixture of one tablespoon apple cider vinegar, one cup warm water, and one tablespoon honey will ease indigestion and may alleviate cramping and gas in your upset stomach. It can also lessen discomfort caused by heartburn

Yogurt Can Reduce Discomfort from an Stomach Upset/Purge


You probably don't crave anything dairy when you have a stomachache, but the probiotic qualities of yogurt—aka live bacteria—make it a good cure as it eases digestive discomfort and boosts your immune system. Just make sure to choose non-fat plain yogurt without added sugar or flavors when you have an upset stomach.

Keywords:

 

Caraway Seeds Ease an Upset Stomach - Purging or Diarrhea

Caraway seeds are packed with vitamins and minerals, which inhibit the growth of bad bacteria that causes indigestion, gas, or bloating and contributes to an upset stomach. Nibble on a handful after eating your meal, or if you feel gassy.


Heat Helps an Purging Stomach (Stomach Upset)


Place a hot water bottle or heating pad on your upset stomach. The heat increases blood flow to the skin surface and transfers the perception of pain from inside your stomach to the outside.

How to Lose Weight Fast in 3 Simple Steps Using Science Based Principle

There are so many routes you can take to get weight loss but almost all of them will lead you to hunger and starvation.

To crown the whole messy situation up, most people will quit because of hunger.

How to Lose Weight Fast


In this quick tips to lose weight, we will see:

  • How to reduce your appetite 
  • how to significantly lose weight quick, without starvation.


1. Cut down your sugar and starchy food intake


The number one thing you should consider is cutting back on those food to high with carbohydrates.
Science reveals that these foods are the main stimulants of the secretion of insulin.

- Insulin is the storage hormone for fats.

If the there is a low amount of insulin in the body, it becomes more easier for fat to get out of the fat store so that the body starts burning fats and not carbohydrates.

It is very possible that you can lose up to 10 pounds or more in the first week you start eating in this way. The evident will reflect on water weight and body weight.

Conclusion on lowering intake of sugar and starch - Removing carbs from your diet will lower your insulin levels, kill your appetite and make you lose weight without starvation.


2. Eat Fats, Vegetables and Proteins.


Every of your meal should be made of a fat, protein, and low-carb vegetables. Constructing your meals time table in this way will automatically bring your carb intake into the recommendable range of 20-50 grams daily.


Sources of Protein:
  • Meat – Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bacon, etc.
  • Fish and Seafood – Salmon, trout, shrimps, lobsters, etc.
Intake of food rich in protein has been shown to boost metabolism by 80 to 100 calories per day.

Experts says high protein diets can reduce obsessive thoughts for food by about 60% and reduce desire for late-night snacking by half.

When it comes to losing weight, protein is your best option.



Low-Carb Vegetables:

  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Swiss Chard
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Celery
A diet based on meat and vegetables contains all the fiber, vitamins and minerals you need to be healthy. There is no physiological need for grains in the diet.

Fat Sources:
  • Olive oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Avocado oil
  • Butter
  • Tallow

- Assemble each meal out of a protein source, a fat source and a low-carb vegetable. This will put you into the 20-50 gram carb range and drastically lower your insulin levels.

3. Lift Weights 3 Times Per Week


You don’t really need to exercise to lose weight on this plan, but it is also recommended.
The best option is to go to the gym 3-4 times a week. Do a warm up, lift weights, then stretch.
If you’re new to the gym, ask a trainer for some advice.

If lifting weights is not an option for you, then doing some easier cardio workouts like running, jogging, swimming or walking will suffice.
Bottom Line: It is best to do some sort of resistance training like weight lifting. If that is not an option, cardio workouts work too.



Weight Loss Tips to Make Losing Weight Easier and Faster

Here are 10 more tips to lose weight even faster:
  1. Eat a high-protein breakfast.
  2. Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice.
  3. Drink water a half hour before meals.
  4. Choose weight loss-friendly foods
  5. Eat soluble fiber.
  6. Drink coffee or tea.
  7. Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods.
  8. Eat your food slowly.
  9. Use smaller plates.
  10. Get a good night’s sleep, every night.

Bottom Line: It is most important to stick to the three rules, but there are a few other things you can do to speed things up.

Don’t Starve Yourself In Order to Lose Weight


If you have a medical condition then talk to your doctor before making changes because this plan can reduce your need for medication.

By reducing carbs and lowering insulin levels, you change the hormonal environment and make your body and brain “want” to lose weight.

This leads to drastically reduced appetite and hunger, eliminating the main reason that most people fail with conventional weight loss methods.
