The Secrets of Detox – Your Key To Vibrant Health and Rejuvenation

The Body Detox Diet

How Breastfeeding Works

Because milk is the sole source of food for young mammals, it must provide all the nutrients essential for their growth. Therefore, the mammary gland must synthesize and secrete sufficient milk of appropriate composition to nourish the young, and the young must be able to remove the milk to sustain their growth and ensure continued milk production. This article reviews the synthesis and secretion of breast milk, the changes in the volume and composition of breast milk after birth, the breastfeeding patterns of babies, and the methods by which babies can regulate the milk production of the mother.

Maasai Diet as Cultural Code

During recent years biomedical scientists, epidemiologists and other public health specialists have come to recognise the importance of an anthropological perspective within public health. As a result medical anthropologists have increasingly been employed within multidisciplinary teams on health projects across the globe, raising their colleagues’ awareness of the importance of cultural determinants of health and ill-health, and providing crucial insights into the ways in which people in different cultures and social groups explain the causes of illhealth, the types of treatment they believe in, and the types of people to whom they turn if they do get ill (Helman, 1999).

Essential Vitamin and Minerals

There is an argument between doctors, nutritionists, and many others that nowadays, if they eat right, people don't need to take vitamins, minerals or extra precaution toward the health and beauty of their skin and hair.

Furthermore, these experts will say, "if you take extra vitamins or minerals you or wasting your money." I'd like to analyze each of these contentions.

How to Use the Milk Diet Scientifically at Home

Almost invariably those who have taken the milk cure properly will find themselves in better health than they may have ever enjoyed before.

Effect of Dietary Supplementation With INVERSION

In modern society, the ideal of slim women with beautiful hair, skin, and nails is well established. The process of aging, together with an unhealthy diet and little physical exercise, often leads to deterioration of this ideal. Two open clinical trials were conducted to investigate the effect of the proprietary oral supplement INVERSION Femme (Inversion Laboratoires, Hasselt, Belgium) on slimming in overweight women and on hair loss, as well as on skin and nail parameters. A total of 22 overweight women aged 38 to 63 y participated in the study that explored slimming activity. In the hair loss study, 30 women aged 38 to 67 y who had experienced hair loss were examined.
