Are you embarrassed by your health problems? Don't be we've heard it all before and helped.
Are you embarrassed about your health problems? Are you mortified at the idea of going into a health food store and asking someone for help? You're not on your own! I have worked in health food stores for 25 years and have been asked all sorts of questions. I've have heard it all before, and helped. I can spot an embarrassed customer a mile off. I know it's not easy. You’ve got to walk through the door. The shop has other customers in there. It's not just you and the sales assistant. You're worried will people hear you when you bare all at the counter and tell the lady your embarrassing health problem? Well don’t be embarrassed! I'm not the only one who has heard it all before and helped. Health store workers have dealt with many health questions. They know it's not easy to ask questions about your health. But remember what seems embarrassing to you will not be at all embarrassing to them. Most will spot the anxious customer a mile off. They will guide you to a quiet place in the corner of the shop.
Often women come in to ask for help about their partners health concerns.
A more common than you think health problem is, male erectile dysfunction. Now I do admit the first time I got asked that question (25 years ago) I was a little thrown. But as I said it is common and I have been asked that question many times over the years both by men themselves and their partners. So what do I suggest! First, rule out any possible underlying causes with a visit to your GP. Some underlying causes can be Diabetes, Obesity or Heart Problems. Sometimes the medication you are on can be a contributory factor, so check that with your GP. Smoking and alcohol are contributory factors too. Obviously stress has a big impact on your health, and the ability to have an erection can be hampered if you are stressed and overworked. So try to fix that problem first. You may need to make some lifestyle changes. L Arginine an amino acid may help. It works by stimulating blood vessels to open wider thus improving blood flow. Ginseng is another remedy that may help. Ginseng is an adaptogenic herb that will help the body cope with and deal with stress more efficiently. It will help improve energy levels, low energy levels can be a contributory factor in erectile dysfunction. Another possible reason that taking ginseng is beneficial, is that, it is thought to increase nitric oxide in the body. This increase helps to improve blood flow in the penis. Poor sleep patterns can also be a factor in erectile dysfunction. So go to bed at the same time every night, before 11pm preferably. If you are having trouble sleeping, try a natural sleep remedy like Valerian. But it's not all about male health problems.
Women have their own embarrassing health concerns too.
A lot of women get embarrassed at the thought of asking for something to help with Vaginal Thrush. And it's just such a common problem caused by a specific yeast known as Candida albicans. A weakened immune system can lead to an overgrowth of Candida in the vagina. It is also quite common during pregnancy, if you have diabetes and during treatment cancer treatment. A lot of you will suffer after a course of anti-biotics. If this is you make sure you take a good strong pro-biotic when you have finished your anti-biotic. The one I like is Udo's Choice Super 8 and often recommend this along with New Nordic Dida. If vaginal thrush is something that you suffer with on and off, long term you will need to look at your diet. Sugars and yeast feed the Candida and they will thrive. You need to starve the buggers. So look up anti-candida diets and this will help guide you on what to cut out of your diet until symptoms improve. Optibac for Women is a great supplement. It has specific bacteria that are found in the vagina and help to fight off the candida infection.
