Gelatin Uses and Benefits

Gelatin is on the list of my supplements that I use on a daily basis. The reason is that it offers a host of uses and benefits. This article is focused on a few uses and benefits of gelatin. Read on.

Gelatin Uses and Benefits

According to Weston A. Price and Nourishing Traditions, Gelatin provides a lot of benefits for your health. For instance, some of the salient benefits of the product are discussed below:

· It triggers nail, hair and skin growth

· It helps you recover from joint problems

· It can help you tighten your lose skin

· It improves your digestive system and you will have easy bowl movements

· It's an ideal source of powerful dietary collagen and protein

What is Gelatin?

Actually, Gelatin consists of glycine and proline. They are found in fibrous tissues, bones and other organs of animals. You need these amino acids in order to get proper growth of hair, nail and skin. This is all what you need in order to look good and catch the eyes of others.

Gelatin Benefits

It's important to note that Gelatin is part of formulas for improving joint health. When used, some people find immediate relief from joint pain. For a long time, the therapeutic effect of gelatin in arthritis was due to its powerful cartilage healing properties. The assumption was based on the fact that the tissue of joints have a lot of collagen. As a matter of fact, some of the gelatin that you consumed becomes part of the joint cartilage; however, the process is slow paced. But the good news is that you can get relief almost immediately.

Since the product can heal your stomach, we suggest that you add gelatin to your diet so you can get rid of allergies.

Why Should You Take Gelatin

Aside from the health benefits given above, Gelatin is good for nail, skin and hair growth. After a few days of use, you will see a considerable difference in the tone and smoothness of your skin.

Apart from these, it will give you additional collagen and protein. As a result, you will be able to absorb the minerals in a better way. So, if you have been struggling to hone your joint or skin health, we suggest that you go for Gelatin instead of other sources of protein, such as whey proteins. You can also add it to your food and drinks so you can absorb the nutrients in the best way.

Also, here it is important to note that the product works better if taken with properly cooked meats. As an alternative, you can have it on an empty stomach in order to promote Human Growth Hormone production.

Long story short, if you have been looking for an ideal source of both the amino acids mentioned above, we suggest that you give a go to Gelatin. You won't regret your decision as the product is safe to use. So, you will always be on the safest side.

Have you been looking for a good source of collagen protein? If so, we suggest that you take a look at gelatin Australia.

You are probably reading this because you are not used to snakes. Those who live in hot climates where snakes are common already know what to do in case of any snake bite. And it is easy for the average person who does not live among snakes in nature nearby to assume that non-venomous snake bites are harmless. If so, here are some pointers from my recent experience.

First of all, it is important to recognize that the snake is a sentient being and has all the fears and reservations that any animal would have. Be careful if you handle them. Get expert advice first. And if the "expert" is handing you a snake to handle without advice, I would decline the offer. Not only can you get bitten, but the snake has feelings too and needs to be handled in a way that feels safe and comfortable.

Secondly, should you have done everything right but get bitten anyway, seek medical help straight away. But the snake is non-venomous, I may hear you say. Well, here is the interesting news. A bite from a snake (or any strange animal, for that matter) can deposit bacteria under your skin. Even if you wash your skin afterwards, there may be bacteria already lodged inside your skin that can cause havoc.

Thirdly, if you have handled snakes and not felt a sharp bite but maybe a tickle, do not assume you have not been bitten. I would have expected a snake biting my hand to have been excruciatingly painful, but it was not painful. It felt like a tickle. For me personally, symptoms only started to appear two days later. This added further confusion as to the cause, until I showed it to an African relative. Snake bite, she said. Then a person who keeps snakes as pets, whom I met purely by accident, also said the same.

There are a few ways to do this naturally, but trust me, I have tried the natural route and still ended up with a raging infection under the skin. It was misdiagnosed as contact dermatitis by one doctor, who gave me cortisone cream. When that only made the hand worse, I realized this was no allergic reaction. This is especially since I myself treat any allergy-like reaction, so really, why the symptoms if it were an allergy? Still, I took antihistamines and lots of painkillers whilst using natural antibacterials and disinfectants. But it was a very slow process. One morning, I got up after having forgotten the long-winded natural treatment the night before, and my hand was red, throbbing, and had lots of new blisters. Time to go to the doctor again. This time, I was finally taken seriously and given antibiotics. It is a very strong dosage and for longer than normal, so the situation must have been serious. I should have persisted and gone back for medical care earlier when the steroid cream made the hand worse. I should also have sought medical help as soon as symptoms appeared.

My advice is that if you think you have been bitten by a non-venomous snake, do not try to deal with it yourself but go and seek medical help as soon as possible.

Doctors of the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System have successfully conducted a stem cell transplant to cure a rare blood disorder, named congenital dyserythropoietic anemia (CDA). It' a rare condition, in which the body does not create enough red blood cells, which leads to organ damage and even early death.

This is the story of David Levy, who started experiencing the unbearable pain of CDA when he was 24. The pain was so severe that he had to leave his studies. He stated, "I spent the following years doing nothing - no work, no school, no social contact -because all I could focus on was managing my pain and getting my health back on track."

David Levy used to receive regular blood transfusions for more than 30 years, so that his tissues and organs keep receiving enough oxygen. When he was 32, he lost his spleen and developed an enlarged lever. As the results of regular blood transfusions, he was suffering from other illnesses such as fatigue, palpitations, and iron poisoning. At last, a desperate David wrote to Dr. Damiano Rondelli, the Michael Reese Professor of Hematology at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

He recollected, "It was bad. I had been through enough pain. I was angry and depressed, and I wanted a cure. That's why I started emailing Dr. Rondelli."

Dr. Rondelli stated that many institutions had rejected the possibilities of stem cell transplant on Levy just because of his physical condition was not stable enough to agree to chemotherapy and radiation. But Rondelli performed transplant on Levy in 2014. He said, "This procedure gives some adults the option of a stem cell transplant which was not previously available."

He also stated that Levy's condition created the optimum situation for the transplant. He added, "For many adult patients with a blood disorder, treatment options have been limited because they are often not sick enough to qualify for a risky procedure, or they are too sick to tolerate the toxic drugs used alongside a standard transplant."

After the surgery, Levy, now 35, is back to his normal life, even though he still feels the pain. He is pursuing his doctorate in psychology and runs group therapies at a behavioral health hospital. He said, "The transplant was hard, and I had some complications, but I am back to normal now. I still have some pain and some lingering issues from the years my condition was not properly managed, but I can be independent now. That is the most important thing to me."

The specialty of the transplant is, no chemotherapy and radiation were administrated in order to prepare the body for the surgery. The process involves the donor's cells taking over the patient's bone marrow slowly to avoid usage of any toxic agents to discard the patient's cells. Rondelli said, "The protocol can be used even in patients with a long history of disease and some organ damage because of the minimal use of chemotherapy."

Rondelli believes that the procedure has a great potential to treat severe congenital anemias. He concluded "The use of this transplant protocol may represent a safe therapeutic strategy to treat adult patients with many types of congenital anemias - perhaps the only possible cure."

The story of David Levy truly evokes a raw of hope for many such patients!

I'm sure by now everybody has heard of Vitamin D and how important it is for our overall health! If you haven't, please crawl out from under that rock for a moment so I can bring you up to speed! Most people, I'm hoping, are even supplementing with it daily (or they should be). Vitamin D is actually a not a vitamin at all but is a pro-hormone, as it can be manufactured in our body when we are exposed to light. Herein is where our problems arise. We get very little sunshine into our tissues on a regular basis nowadays. Many of us live at a latitude which predisposes us to sub-par sun exposure on our skin (where all the Vitamin D magic starts), or we are slathering on sunscreen for protection against the damaging effects of the sun, (like producing Vitamin D to keep us healthy) which halts our vitamin D conversion!

It turns out that about 40% of the global population is deficient in Vitamin D and over 70% of Americans are either deficient or insufficient in their vitamin D levels. The sunlight we are exposed to daily is our primary source of vitamin D and since we get very little from our diets, if we are not receiving that exposure on our skin, you can imagine how important supplementation now becomes. A deficiency of Vitamin D (a serum vitamin D 25-OH level less than 20 ng/dl) is linked to many chronic diseases, cancers, poor bone health, autoimmune diseases, neurocognitive issues like depression, mood stability and Alzheimer's disease. You can begin to see the importance of having adequate levels for our bodies to operate efficiently and without disease. We have a vitamin D receptor in nearly every single cell in our body and it is responsible for regulating over 3000 of our genes. So, you can understand the gravity of the situation. Unless you plan on sunbathing in the summer and taking vacations to sunbathe in the winter, your Vitamin D requirements might need some attention. I always tell my patients that they should know their vitamin D level. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin (OK, pro-hormone) that needs to be monitored. As with any fat soluble vitamin, toxicity can be an issue (although Vitamin D has a very broad range level of safety).

Where do we start? With a simple blood draw, inexpensive, not routinely done with the normal CBC or CMP, but can easily be added by asking your doctor. The test is serum Vitamin D 25-OH, and is one of the more important numbers you should know.

I had a patient who was suffering from crippling agoraphobia (she felt it unsafe to leave her home). What stood out the most from her blood work results was that her vitamin D 25-OH level was in the single digits at 7ng/dl. Very shortly after supplementing with Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) she had no anxiety, depression or mood instabilities, and her words were, "she felt like herself again"!

Vitamin D is one of the supplements I tell every one of my patients they should be taking regularly for their health. How much you may ask? Dosage depends on your serum blood levels. If you are deficient or insufficient in your Vitamin D levels, work with a practitioner to help monitor it and set your dosing appropriately. That being said, a very safe dosage that you may immediately start supplementing with (until you can have your blood levels checked) is a summertime dose of 5,000 I.U.s and wintertime dose of 7-10,000 I.U.s of vitamin D3. Everyone should be supplementing with some amount of Vitamin D for better health. If you need your levels checked or dosage customized, give us a call and we'll accommodate your needs.

Serum Vitamin D levels should be added to your typical blood draw panels that are routinely assessed for your yearly health. If you've haven't had your Vitamin D levels taken please contact us at and we can arrange for you to obtain your levels. Dr. Ronald Vaught, D.C.

The benefits of chiropractic care are well established today and people suffering from back and neck pain are increasingly seeking out this alternative treatment technique. Take a look at some of the more powerful benefits of chiropractic care:

Provides Effective Pain Relief

Several studies that have been done have established that chiropractic care can be more effective than medications when it comes to relieving lower or upper back pain or neck pain. It also works to treat the pain of sciatica, bulging disc and slipped disc.

Pain Management Without Drugs

As research throws up more and more evidence of the dangers of taking medication and prescription pills, we are becoming more conscientious about reducing our dependence of medication. Chiropractic provides the perfect alternative as it promotes a drug-free approach. Chiropractic focuses on treating the whole system holistically.

Low Risk Treatment

Conventional medicine uses prescription medication for mild back pain and surgery for more severe back pain. Both of these are high risk as medications can cause complicated adverse effects and surgery is invasive. With chiropractic adjustments the only side effect you can expect is a bit of soreness and in some cases fatigues. Very rarely are there any serious side effects.

Treats The Cause Of The Pain

Most medications merely help to manage the symptoms of pain but the cause of the pain still remains in the body. Painkillers may mask the pain in your upper or lower back but it does not cure the bulging disc. Chiropractic care on the other hand addresses the cause of the pain, which is more effective for long-term relief.

Treatments Can Be Customized Depending On Your Condition

Chiropractors make use of a wide range of tools and techniques to treat pain and other mobility issues. All of these techniques can be customized for your body shape and size and the location of your pain. If you let your chiropractor know the exact spot that is painful and the kind of pain, you will receive customized Chiropractic treatment.

Prevents Joint Dysfunction & Several Other Conditions

One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care is that it reduces joint dysfunction, which could otherwise lead to symptoms in other parts of the body. Routine treatment can also prevent and treat several other health conditions, from headaches and migraines to menstrual disorders, fertility issues, gastrointestinal disorders and ear infection. Your chiropractor can help develop a customized treatment plan for you depending on your symptoms.

Kidneys have a number of important functions to perform in our bodies. Firstly, they filter the wastes from the bloodstream and help maintain the balance of electrolytes in the body. They remove the chemical and drug byproducts as well as the toxins from the blood stream. Further, all these substances are eliminated from the body along with excess water as urine. They also play an important role in secreting hormones that regulate the absorption of calcium from the food - thus improving your bone strength. Well they help in the production of red blood cells and regulate the amount of fluid in the circulatory system and hence are important when it comes to controlling blood pressure.

When the blood enters the kidneys, it is filtered in two steps. First through structures called glomeruli and second through a series of tubules called nephrons. The tubules perform a dual task. They remove the unwanted substances and also reabsorb the useful substances back into the blood.

So, what causes kidney failure?

There are a number of conditions that could contribute to kidney damage. Some are primary kidney diseases and some are other conditions that indirectly affect the kidney. Here are a few causes:

· When a kidney is damaged to an extent that it cannot function normally, it caused kidney failure.

· Kidney failure can happen rapidly or slowly. Rapid failure, or acute kidney failure as it is called, is usually in response to another illness in the body that impacts the kidneys. If the underlying cause can be treated or controlled in time, kidney failure can be prevented. Slow failures happen in response to a chronic disease such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

· In some cases, kidney disease is hereditary

· Infections and substances such as drugs can permanently scar the kidneys and lead to failure.

It is most commonly seen that people with the following conditions are at a greater than normal risk of developing kidney related problems.

· Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes

· High blood pressure - especially when not controlled in time.

· Liver disease

· Heart disease

· Inherited kidney diseases

· Those taking a lot of antibiotics

Most common symptoms to look out for:

The symptoms for kidney failure vary widely depending on the cause of the kidney failure. These symptoms also depend upon the severity of the condition and the other parts of the body that are affected.

It is important to note that most people do not show any symptoms at all - especially in the early stages of the disease. Some display very subtle or mild symptoms that are very difficult to catch. The most obvious symptoms appear only when the condition becomes severe or even critical. Kidney failure is not painful - even when severe. However, watch out for dehydration, fluid retention, urinating less than usual or nausea, vomiting or pale skin.

Kidney transplant is considered as a viable treatment where the non working kidneys are replaced with healthy kidneys from another person. Your doctor will conduct a series of tests to ensure that you have a kidney that matches the criteria and will evaluate your surgical and medical history before the surgery.
