Baltic Amber is an all natural healer

The Beginnings of Amber

While Baltic Amber is dubbed as a gemstone, it is actually made from fossilized resin from pine trees, and it has been around for thousands of years. Not only has it been around for a long time, amber in itself takes just as long to be created from the trees. It is not possible to plant a pine tree today, and expect it to transform into amber within a few months or years. Raw Unpolished Cherry Baltic Amber Necklace For Big Kid, Child, Or AdultAmber is a craft and gift given to us for use from another period. This may answer the question for some who wonder why there are insects trapped inside some of them. It has long been believed that they were sealed within resin as it dripped down the pine trees. Time and weather are the key ingredients in the creation of amber, which is mostly found in Northern Europe. The change from resin to amber occurs from ploymerization, a hardening processing where molecules merge to form bigger particles until it becomes insoluble.

What Does Amber Look Like?

Amber comes in an array of colors that depend on the resin's condition and components. The typical color most see amber as is a golden brown that can be compared to honey. It can come in other yellow to orange colors as well as black in red. Although rare, amber can also come in blue in white. Amber has several colorful natural forms, and it should be note that the color variances do not alter the benefits or effect in any way. It does, however, change the Raw Unpolished Multi Baltic Amber Necklace For Big Kid, Child, Or Adultvalue. Since red and blue are not as common as yellow amber, they are looked at as more valuable. Clarity also affects value, and the more transparent it is, the more it will likely cost you. Cloudy amber can be made clear, but a special process is needed to complete it by heating it up with oil. It should be done with extreme caution because there is a possibility the stones will develop cracks.

The Benefits of Amber Then are the Same Now

The most known wonders of amber is its ability to free the body from toxin, disease, and pain while promoting an optimal immune system so the body can heal itself without needing medication.

Dealing with Troublesome Ear Infections

Get rid of Ear Infections

All About Ear Infections

There is no such thing as a "little" injury; even something as small as a paper cut can be painful. Infections of the ear are no different, and its appearance can be a challenge to deal with throughout the day. Ear infections may be of bacterial or viral origin, and often occur due to allergies, a cold, sinus infections, mucous buildup or swollen tonsils, although other factors exist. The ear is also connected to the teeth and jaw, and occasionally, if an injury or infection were to occur in any of these areas, such as tooth pain, an ear infection may also develop. 

Types of Ear Infections: 

Outer Ear Infection: Also known as "swimmer's ear" or otitis externa, this painful condition involves the opening of the ear and ear canal. An infection results from excessive moisture from frequent swimming, showering, or bathing. The water sits in the canal, becoming an excellent breeding ground for bacteria. The infection can also develop if the canal is injured due to scratching or placing objects (earphones, cotton swabs) in the delicate areas, causing inflammation. Risk factors include:

  • Swimming in water with high levels of bacteria
  • Aggressive ear cleaning
  • Use of certain devices like a hearing aid
  • Narrow ear canal

Acute Middle Ear Infections: Although this form of infection tends to occur in children because they have smaller Eustachian tubes, adults are not immune. It can happen when something prevents fluid from properly draining out the middle ear. Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae are the usual bacterial offenders. Adults are more likely to have this type of ear infection during the winter compared to the spring or summer. Risk factors include:

  • Immunosuppression 
  • First- or second-Hand Smoking
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Craniofacial defects (Down's Syndrome)
  • Eustachian tube dysfuction

Antibiotics Aren't Actually the Treatment of Choice

It seems to make sense to treat an infection with antibiotics, but this choice should be re-evaluated. The Institute of Quality and Efficiency in Health Care found that many cases of Baltic Amber Necklace - Lava Rock Amber Necklace Arthritis Carpal Tunnel Polished Cognac Or Raw Rainbow 19 Inch Teen Or Adult Essential Oils Aromatherapyear infections resolved on its own.

Is Your Child Suffering From Ear Infection?

When Ear Infection is the Problem

New and veteran parents often do not struggle understanding when it is time to change or feed their baby. Noticing when their baby is sick with a fever or needs to go to sleep are not too complicated either. However, raising a little one is far from easy, and there are plenty of instances where they continuously keep us guessing. One of the last things most parents would suspect happening to their child is an ear infection although nearly 75% of kids get it by the time they are three. In fact, ear infections are the most common diagnosis found in kids after the common cold. Kids under three are most likely to get it because of their underdeveloped immune system. Sometimes the infection can appear on its own or be accompanied by another complication, so it helps to monitor your child to determine which of the two it is. 

Three Types of Ear Infections Image result for ear infection kids

  • Acute Otitis Media (AOM) : Infection of the middle ear is seen in kids the most. The central ear is red, swollen, and infected due to fluid being trapped behind the eardrum. This results in ear pain, and it's possible for a child to develop a fever.
  • Otitis Media with Effusion (OME) : Kids may get this type of ear infection after AOM has run its course, and fluid gets trapped behind the eardrum. There are no distinct symptoms, but it is often diagnozed when doctors notice fluid draining behind the ear using an instrument.
  • Chronic Otitis Media with Effusion (COME): This is a more severe version of OME where fluid remains trapped in the middle ear for long periods of time or it continuously recurs. No active infection exists in either, but COME makes it tough for a child to stave off infections. Their hearing may also become compromised.

Symptoms to look For in Ear Infections

When an ear infection exists, it often occurs when the child is not yet able to speak so parents and caregivers have to rely of signs that present itself to let you know something is up with their ear.

  • Trouble with sleeping Image result for ear infection kids symptoms
  • Running a high temperature
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • They cry or get fussy
  • Less appetite
  • Clear fluid drains out the ear
  • Pulling or Tugging of the ear
  • Foul/Unpleasant odor from the ar
  • Trouble responding to or listening to quiet sounds
  • Issues with attaining balance

The Ugly Side of Ear Infections

Many parents do not treat ear infections out of malice, but because of their lack of knowledge that it exists. In the event an ear infection is not taken care of, there is a high risk the eardrum will rupture. They seldom ever form, but when rupture do occur, they fortunately heal rather well although it may take a few days or weeks. If ear infections happen often, it can lead to scarring of the eardrum and hearing loss. If that is left untreated, mastoiditis, a rare skull infection present behind the ear, can form. Ensuring ear infections are under control when they do happen ensure a safe and rapid recovery. 

Healing Ear Infections

There is one main step involved when treating ear infections: getting rid of the inf19 Inch Raw Polished Multi Baltic Amber Necklace Bean Leaf Big Kid, Child, Or Adultection.

Get Rid of Tooth Pain

Does your Tooth Need Personal or Professional Touch?

Depending on the root of the problem, you may or may not have to go to a dentist for tooth pain. If you have an inkling that your tooth pain is due to an abscess, loose fillings, cavities, or extreme sinus condition, remedies should only be used at relief until you can visit your doctor. However, if you are experiencing tooth or gum pain due to minor, short-lasting sinus conditions from being sick, the recent addition or removal of braces or because your wisdom teeth are growing in without alignment complications, at-home care may be the only solution you need to take care of it. Below are a few options you can do to take care of toothaches in addition to or without having to resort to using chemicals such as Orajel.

 

Remedies to Treat Tooth Pain Naturally

 

Salt Water SolutionImage result for tooth pain

Salt water is an excellent cleanser when you need to treat infected areas infested with bacteria and pus as it loosens debris as it eases the pain. Treat the solution as a mouthwash by swishing it for about 30 seconds before spitting it out to draw out the debris and reduce swelling Add about half a teaspoon of salt to every cup of water. Be sure to boil the water to help dissolve the mixture quicker. The warmth provides even more soothing benefits that extends as far as the throat.

Peppermint Tea

Peppermint is fragrant and flavorful as tea, and drinking it will help numb the pain. Peppermint contains tannins, an astringent, that help with both swelling and pain. Add a teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves to every eight ounces of water and allow it to sit for 15-30 minutes to cool down. When it does, swish it in your mouth the same way you would salt water and spit it out. Alternatively, you can use the tea bag directly on your tooth after heating or freezing it.

Hydrogen Peroxide

The mouth is able to effectively eliminate bacteria, odor or foul taste when hydrogen peroxide is swished then rinsed with water. In order to avoid possible irritation or burning of the gums, combine equal portions of 3% hydrogen peroxide with water rather than using the full strength. Any pain felt will also be temporarily relieved. It is important to not swallow this solution because it can cause intestinal or stomach issues.

Clove Oil

Cloves, derived from eugenol, is a naturally occurring anesthetic that numbs the nerves to decrease the level of pain. A little goes a long way with this, and it should be used with caution. If you are not careful, it can do more harm than good in regards pain and sensitivity should it land on the tongue or tender gum tissue. It is best to apply 1-2 drops on a cotton ball directing it to the affected tooth to have the most control. You will notice the numbing effects not long after applying it, but keep in mind it only lasts for a few minutes.

Ginger and Cayenne Pepper 

Ginger and cayenne pepper are spicy in their own way, and one would think both should stay far away from the mouth when dealing with tooth pain to avoid irritation. Interestingly enough, the combination does more good than harm when the application is done right. They work as powerful painkillers, especially cayenne pepper. The active ingredient of the red pepper is capsaicin, which prevent pain messages from being sent to the brain. Make a 50:50 paste with water and at apply it to the area with a cotton ball. As a note, you only want it to touch the tooth while keeping it away from the tongue and gums. The paste may remain as long as it is needed until the pain leaves.

These Triggers Flare up Rosacea

Treat Rosacea Flare ups Naturally

Skin Sensitivity and Rosacea

The most annoying part about flare-ups is that even when they are gone or look better you dread that they will find a way to come back. Rosacea  is a problem that affects nearly 20 million people that is far from just the blush it is mistaken as. It causes the skin to be overly sensitive and leave a red-tinted flush that remains for hours. It is a chronic type of inflammation that primarily shows on the face due to dilated capillaries that can remain red longer with every flare-up. For some, bumpy blemishes, itching, stinging and thickening of the skincare additional complications that are coupled with rosacea. While your parents genes play a strong influence, rosacea can be controlled by avoiding common triggers.

 

What Your Skin Routine Shouldn't Include

One of the first things most people look at changing when they are suffering from a skin issue is adjusting their skin routine. Of course, this is an excellent start, but it is important to remember your skin is extremely sensitive and the last thing you want to do is be overzealous. Certain products, especially exfoliants and astringents, will be harsh on the skin and are best avoided when you notice they are turning your face red. Abstaining for harsh sulfates and opting for gentler or natural cleansers will make difference. Exfoliants may still be used, but remember, you want to seek those that are gentle and do not irritate the skin. The same applies for body cleansers and products like lotions and perfumes containing fragrance and alcohol.

Is it Your Makeup?

We wash our face to get rid of all the grime and dirt that accumulates throughout the day. Making sure all your makeup is thoroughly removed will help. Completely changing the brand of makeup you use can also help in the event it is the makeup itself that it causing the triggers if you are allergic to it. If you suspect you are allergic, it is best to keep track of your symptoms when you wear makeup, and what happens when you do not for at least two weeks. 

Don't Let Stress Get the Best of You

It is amazing -- in a not so good way -- what stress can do physically and mentally. When you are under a lot of stress your body releases chemicals as a way to help deal with the stress. These chemicals can affect your skin when there is too much, and a lack of it can to the same (when you are burned out). It is all about keeping a balance and refraining from stress.

Consider What You Are or Aren't Consuming

The body is a funny thing. What affects one person may not affect the other so it is hard to completely rely on the methods of what worked for one person. A sad, but excellent example is food. Flare ups can happen for some who consume something that activate the unwanted response, often because you are allergic to it. The opposite affect can happen as well with not eating enough of a nutrient, plummeting the immune system, which causing an immune response to occur. The only true way to determine your issue would be to test either or both out to see if food, or a lack of a certain food, is causing your problem.  Baltic Amber Necklace - Luxury Baltic Amber Necklace Arthritis Raw Polished 19 Inch Teen Adult

The Many Types of Acne

Types of Acne and Treatment

Which Form of Acne Do You Suffer From?

Not all people suffer from the same form of acne during the times it erupts. In a lot of cases, it is possible to have more than one type appear on the skin at the same time. This complex issue can  make how acne should be approached when you are treating the ailment. The rise of hormones or imbalance can happen to any age. It is also of no surprise that our diet and the environment may also play a role in the development of acne, putting genetics aside. The following below can help you understand what type, or types, of acne you may be struggling with. 

Whiteheads

Believe it or not, these unsightly white spots that appear on the skin are oil glands that occur due to excessive production of oil which causes the glands to clog. Due to this, the oil remains trapped between skin layers and is unable to reach surface causing  a plug to form. Although no true infection takes place, bacteria may be present as well. Whiteheads do not last nearly as long as blackheads, with an average cycle of seven days.

Blackheads

This type of acne is extremely common for people on and around the nose, chin and forehead. If a pore remains open, it is also known as a open comedo. Black lumps appear because of blocked follicles because of bacteria, dead skin cells, and other substances that react to oxygen when it reaches the surface. It may appear black, grey, or brown.

Papules (Inflammatory)

Papules appear as little bumps or reddish dots on the skin. The area is inflamed although it may or may not be sensitive to the touch. They typically do not contain any pus or display a visible pore. It is best to not pick the area when flare-ups are active as it may result in scarring.

Pustules (Inflammatory)

You may be dealing with pustules the acne is inflammed, hard, and filled with pus that appear as white spots with a yellowish center. Attempting to pick or pop it can also lead to scarring and dark spots. The primary difference from and papules is that pustules contain white blood cells. There are an accumulation of these cells as the immune system tries to combat bacteria that travelled inside a ruptured follicle. The area tends to inflamed and tender.

Nodules (Inflammatory)

This is one of the more severe forms of acne that is larger in size compared to pustules and papules. The inflamed bump is painful although it does not contain pus and is hard and stiff. People may notice them during the latter stages when they are breaking out. Nodules appear due to accumulated skin cells, sebum, and bacteria within the follicles that are formed deep within the skin for a long time. This deepness poses potential tissue injury. They can be dormant, and activate occasionally. Should they be popped or squeezed, deep in
fections are a high possibility as well as permanent scarring. 

Cysts ((Inflammatory)

Cysts are the deepest form of acne that are filled with pus, unlike nodules. It is tender to the touch, and do not come to a head. Since cysts are located so deep under the skin, they do not look like pimples. They simply look like big, swollen lumps that either clump together or occur individually. Scarring and hyperpigmentation are almost a definite aftermath when it heals.

An Option for Treating Many Types of Acne

Baltic Essentials Hazelwood can naturally treat many types of acne without having to worry about troublesome side effects. It is especially helpful for those who are dealing with inflammatory acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Hazelwood is also able to ease pain associated with some forms of pimples because it is also a natural anesthetic. The active form of Hazelwood, acetylsalicylic acid, is delivered directly into the bloodstream where it attacks the infected and inflamed area. This ability is most favorable for deep pimples in the skin where topical agents have little to no effect on the area. It can be used to treat active breakouts as well as prevent them from coming so you can look your best.

Getting Painful Pimples

For something so small, pimples can pack quite the punch on a person, whether it's  physically or emotionally. The pain is often intensified if we dare to pop it which may or may not be successful. Even the aftermath of popping a pimple is ugly as it invites scabs and scars. The reason pimples sometimes hurt is because the pore has become infected due to the collect of oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. This causes the body to fight back to kill the infection, wrapping the infected pore in a secluded bubble where inflammation takes place. The level of pain also depends how close the area is pushed against a nerve. It helps to implement a routine to reduce to eliminate the appearance of acne, but should the enemy decide to appear, there are a few things you can do to get rid of it quick while easing the pain.

Addressing the Pimple

There are a few methods you can try to banish the pimple(s). Try one or all to see what works best for your problem and skin type. Of course, keeping your skin clean and trying not to touch it should be remembered.

      2. Typically, painful pimples do not head a head and they are embedded deep within the skin so drawing it up to the surface by applying a heat cloth can also be beneficial (other than the clay mask). As with the ice, apply it for 5 minutes on and off up to half an hour.

      3. The cooling sensation of peppermint and tea tree oil can also ease the pain as it heals the pimple by cleansing the area while drying it out. Remember to dilute the oil. It may be wash off or left over night.

The Many Benefits Meditating Has on the Body

Improve Concentration Skills with Amber

Peace and Relaxation Does More Than We think

Sometimes it is the simple things in life that help us the most. Something as basic as sleeping helps us reset our body so we can function to conquer each day as it comes. We often think doing more or buying a certain product will help increase our productivity, but we are truly capable of doing this ourselves without medicinal assistance, products, or programs. If you have never thought of meditation or given it a try, you would be pleasantly surprised to know it can help increase brain function such as memory and concentration, reduce mental overload, relieve stress, treat chronic pain. 

The Problem with Today

It's true, the 21st century is deemed as the technology area, and we have advanced a lot even compared to 100 years ago. We are able to travel just about anywhere and complete a lot of tasks quicker. We also have something called the Internet, cell phones, and games that seem to destroy our attention span and memory rather than build it these days. It is no Image result for meditationwonder most people have issues focusing these days, even if we believe we do. The food we eat today and the increase in sedentary lifestyles can fog our mind, cause stress and even be the cause of complications and disease in the future. Taking care of ourselves is now more important than ever.

Our Mind

Academics are drilled heavily on us from the time we are kids until we reach the age to work and are professionally successful. Although standardized tests and exams all high school and college students are probably familiar with are minimally predictive indicators of future success finding work, admission departments and schools enjoy giving them. After all, they test our memory and ability to focus as much as our knowledge on the material. There are other reasons memory and concentration are needed outside school, and improving them seems to be an impossible task to most. Increasing our brain function should also be thought of as exercise, and improvement can happen if we train. Think of our brain as a muscle where meditation can train our minds to focus and keep attention as well as memory. Meditation can be done in as little as a few minutes every day or as much as several hours daily, and studies have shown that either are beneficial. 

Our Body

There may be days, weeks, months, and even years, we overwork ourselves, and put a toll on our body. A little stress is normal, but too much of it is a recipe for disaster as it can cause mental and physical turmoil. It is very possible for conditions and diseases to occur as well due to stress, including the sensation of pain. The body has a peculiar way to heal itself, but on the same token, it can eat itself away. The body can only handle so much at a time, and promoting rest through meditation can help ease and potential issues and functional optimally. Mediation can help control stress and wounds.

Jump Start Your Meditation Skills

The Four Stages of Acne

Living with Acne

Living with Pimples on Your Face

It's interesting how there are times we wake up one morning and notice an unwanted lump on our face. Pimples may appear few and far between or they may appear often and nest in many areas on our face. We often feel extremely unlucky when acne seems to make a home out of our face, never really leaving. Knowing which stage you often fall helps define its level of severity, what options there are to treat it, and how long it may take to get better. 

First Stage of Acne

The first stage is the mildest form of acne where people may notice that they have blackheads, whiteheads, and small pimples. The most common areas these signs occur is on the forehead or nose, and teens are most likely to suffer from this stage. Nonetheless, adults are just as likely to develop this form of acne, especially the black- or whiteheads on the nose. There are usually no active signs of inflammation although the person is breaking out and small blemishes can be seen.

Second Stage of Acne

The second stage is classified as moderate acne where comedones tend to appear on the skin. There is a high chance that pustules, papules, and nodules are present as well that most find are sensitive to the touch. The cheeks, chin, and forehead are primary locations where the breakouts occur. It is usually a local problem and does not typically spread to other areas of the body other than the face.

Third Stage of Acne

Like the first two stages, breakouts do not tend go beyond the face although there is a chance it will in some cases. During the third stage, inflammation is now in effect to a great degree and signs such as pain and redness are common. Papules, pustules, and nodules continue to be present. Problems such as scarring and hyperpigmentation are likely to take place after the pimples heal, but if addressed properly, can heal.

Fourth Stage of Acne

The last stage is, of course, the most severe with the skin not only having pustules, nodules, and papulues -- troublesome cysts are a problem too. Most people experience breakouts often and may suffer from those breakouts moving to other areas like the back, neck, chest, and buttocks. Scarring and hyperpigmentation is especially likely in this severe stage that can cause permanent damage to the skin. The appearance of cysts have the highest possibility of disfiguring the skin.

An Incredible Way to Control Acne

The active ingredient of resin is the succinic acid that is released from the bead that is absorbed into the bloodstream when it is warmed up from the skin. It is the oil from the acid that provides immense anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and analgesic effects on the body. The trio make it the perfect combination at relieving teething pain along with many of its associated symptoms such as redness, drooling, fussiness, and ear pain. The succinic acid also contains immune boosting and antioxidant rich properties which are most useful in easing or preventing the flu and cold. The swollen, sore gums your little one may initially feel will go away as the new teeth grow in over the span of a few weeks or months. The end result? A very happy baby.

The Benefits Come Soon

A common question many ask is do the amber teething necklaces really work for babies. The great thing about using Baltic Essentials Teething Necklaces for babies is knowing that relief is only moments away. Parents notice a positive change in their child after wearing it within half an hour. Of course, not everyone will see the exact same results and others may notice the results in several hours or a few days. The teething necklaces also provide lasting results when they continue to be worn with adult supervision, but be sure to remove them anytime your baby is asleep. The jewelry is also best worn when it is not too tight, but not too lose Image result for happy babywhere your child can tug on it. Doing so prevents them from chewing on amber as the product only needs to be in contact with skin to work, and not the mouth. Leaving amber alone and allowing them to forget that the necklace is there allows the beads to work its magic.

For the Child That Wants to Chew

Sucking, biting, and chewing on things are actually natural reflexes a baby must have and should be allowed to do during their development. If you find that your infant still wants something to chew on even if they are relieved from any pain with the help of Baltic Essentials Amber, you should still allow that to satisfy that need to chew. In addition to using the teething necklaces for your baby, you can still give them products that are safe for them to chew on such as chewable toys, damp cloth, or a teether. All of these items give just the right amount of texture your baby can handle to gnaw on safely. You can even allow them to chew on your finger if their teeth are not completely grown in (a full set of teeth would be painful). Children, namely those under 12 months explore and have fun by putting things in their mouth so it is okay to give them such products. Of course, always be sure to monitor them and provide the right teething products they can use safely. The teething process should be a fun phase for parents and babies, and it most certainly can done. Do amber teething necklaces really work? Amber teething necklaces really work for babies!
