Herbs & Hair
In the 1980s, doctors and patients found out that the drug minoxidil does help grow--and regrow hair. It just didn't work predictably well for many of those who tried it. Ten years and countless trials later, some dermatologists think that a three-drug regimen may be more successful in battling baldness. This less common regimen involves mixing Rogaine (minoxidil), now available over the counter, with Proscar (finasteride), originally a medication for prostate enlargement, and thyroid hormone. The application method is similar to what is suggested on the packages of minoxidil: Rub it into the scalp every day. Of course, this combination treatment will cost more....but early results are promising.
Saw Palmetto Berries
Widely recognized for their potential to diminish an enlarged prostate gland, say studies at major medical institutions such as the University of Chicago. But say palmetto may also help prevent baldness by blocking the body's production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a substance that deadens hair follicles. Male pattern baldness is a form of hormone-related hair loss. But of more concern to many men and women afflicted with hair loss is alopecia areata, a lesser-known disorder that causes hair loss in nearly 4 million Americans. Typically, hair grows in cycles of two to six years, after which hair lies dormant and then falls out. On a normal head, some hair is at the beginning of the cycle while some is further along in the growth cycle. With alopecia areata, some or all of the hair follicles stop growing at the same time, leaving tiny bald spots or complete baldness. Normally, hair will grow back in anywhere from six months to a year. But for those afflicted, the wait can be devastating.
Know Your Self For Real
Hot & Cold: Extreme Temperature Safety If you intend to travel outdoors, you should be prepared to deal with all sorts of weather. This might mean the rainiest days to the driest, and from the hottest daytime hours to the coldest nights.
The human body has a normal core temperature between 98.6 and 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit (F). In order to maintain this temperature without the aid of any warming or cooling device, the external environment must be at about 82 F. Clothes aren’t just a social convention — they’re necessary warming tools. We can usually add on more layers in colder months, and use fans or air conditioners in warmer months in order to maintain that healthy core temperature.
However, in some cases, you may find yourself in an environment with temperature extremes. It’s essential to know what health concerns you may face, and how to avoid any temperature-related problems.
Part 2 of 3: The Heat
The HeatIt’s important to note that the temperature reading on a thermometer is not necessarily the temperature for which you should be concerned. The relative humidity in an environment can significantly affect what’s called the “apparent temperature,” or the temperature you actually feel. If the air temperature reads 85 F, but there’s zero humidity, it will actually feel like it’s 78 F, whereas the same air temperature in an environment with 80 percent humidity will feel like 97 F.
High environmental temperatures can be dangerous to the human body. In the range of 90 to 105 F, heat cramps and exhaustion may occur. Between 105 and 130 F, heat exhaustion is almost certain, and activities should be significantly limited. An environmental temperature over 130 degrees F is likely to lead to heatstroke.
Heat-related illnesses include:
The ColdAs with high temperatures, when it comes to cold temperatures, don’t rely solely on the thermometer reading of environmental air. For instance, the speed of the wind and external body moisture can cause a chill that dramatically changes your body’s rate of cooling and how you feel. In very cold weather, especially with a high wind-chill factor, you can rapidly experience the onset of hypothermia. Falling into cold water can also result in immersion hypothermia.
When your body first drops below 98.6 F, you may:
It’s essential to protect anyone experiencing early symptoms of hypothermia. They should be removed from the cold immediately if possible. However, don’t try to warm a person suffering from serious hypothermia with vigorous exercise or vigorous rubbing, because this can lead to more difficult problems.
Other cold-related illnesses include:
Proper preparation and attention to emerging conditions can prevent or treat many temperature-related situations and ailments.
