Alcoholism general effects gives reason to stop the drink for a better health and comfort

Alcoholism general effects gives reason to stop: Substance abuse

The genesis of alcoholism general effects is always simple, attractive and appears harmless. It all begins with an introductory simple sip which appears to be very harmless as it is taken then the simplicity gains momentum from the influence of your friends and it is no longer a simple sip but a simple drink and because you want to fit in and be counted, you join in the club of belonging. You are now accepted and you feel well placed and can be counted among your peers. However in doing all these you have just started the journey of health problems and complications which will also start in almost the same way you got into alcohol consumption. Health complications will also start in very simple ways and as you continue drinking they graduated from one level to another.

Dear reader, alcohol consumption is not good for your health says doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center. When it comes to protecting your health, the sentiment “responsible drinking’ has no value. With addictive substances, there is nothing like that. The effects of alcohol are costly and complicated that, if you are not drinking please stay that way and if you are drinking already, all is not lost. However, you need to make quick decision and stop what you call responsible drinking and move to responsible healthy living. We appreciate that this may not be everyone’s cup of tea and therefore, you will need professional advice from the house of experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center by scheduling an appointment with doctor Akoury for the commencement of your recovery process. Meanwhile for a better understanding, we are going to interrogate some of the effects of alcohol for better understanding of the magnitude as follows:

  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Cancer
  • Effects on the lungs
  • Skin, muscle and bone disorder
  • Weight and diabetes
  • Central and Peripheral Nervous System and Mental Functioning
  • Vitamins and mineral deficiencies

Alcoholism general effects gives reason to stop: Heart disease and stroke

For the purpose of this article, we are going to narrow down on the first two (heart disease and stroke and cancer), while addressing the different in our subsequent articles. While it may be true that when people drink moderately there is the possibility of some improvement of health by reduction of certain risk factors like increasing HDL i.e. good cholesterol levels. This is only minimal and it is subject to consuming one or two units of alcohol daily. It is important to understand that this does not in any way indicate that drinking alcohol unilaterally reduce cardiovascular risk because excessive consumption will definitely affect your health negatively. Alcohol being a toxic substance has the ability to damage the heart muscles making heart disease to be the leading cause of death among alcoholics.

Alcoholism general effects gives reason to stop: Cancer

Alcohol abuse and dependence may increase the risk for certain type of cancers like mouth, throat, esophageal, gastrointestinal, liver, and colorectal, cancers. When it comes to some of these risks there is no safe limits and the dangers are realistic even with very minimal consumption having adverse effects on breast cancer. It is important that alcohol consumption be avoided in totality for attainment of good health.

Skin cancer prevention and risk management

Skin cancer prevention

Skin cancer prevention and risk management begins with stopping drug usage

Skin cancer prevention and risk management: Melanin

Melanin is the colour pigment in our skins. When skin is exposed to sunlight, more melanin is produced to help protect the skin against the UV rays. This makes the skin darker what people refer to as a suntan. Although melanin stops your skin burning so easily, it does not prevent the harmful effects of UV rays and that is why skin cancer prevention is very necessary as a tool of risk management in keeping the skin health intact says doctor Dalal Akoury MD and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center. Doctor Akoury’s expert opinion is that most skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to the sun which also includes:

  • The non-melanoma type of skin cancer
  • The melanoma type of skin cancer

Non melanoma skin cancers include basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas. Sun damage can also cause other skin problems to develop. For example, it can cause premature skin ageing, such as wrinkles and loss of elasticity. It can also cause non-cancerous growths on the skin, such as solar keratosis

Skin cancer prevention and risk management: Who is at risk of skin cancer?

People of all ages should protect their skin, but it is even more vital to protect children. Although skin cancer is rare in children, the amount of sun exposure during childhood is thought to increase the risk of developing skin cancer in adult life. Children who have had episodes of sunburn are more likely to develop skin cancers in later life. The skin of children is more delicate and more prone to damage. Therefore, take extra care with children, and keep babies out of the sun completely.

If you have pale skin, red or fair hair, and freckles, you have the type of skin which burns most easily. This puts you at increased risk of sun-related skin damage and you should take extra care to protect your skin NEVER allow yourself to burn. If you have pale skin, you do not have as much protective melanin. Skin cancers, especially melanoma, are less common in non-white skin types. However, they can still occur, and sun protection is still important. Other factors which can put you at more risk of developing skin cancer are:

  • Having lots of moles.
  • Having a history of a skin cancer of any type.
  • Someone in your family having a history of skin cancer.
  • Having albino skin. This is very white skin which has no melanin at all.
  • Having vitiligo. This is patches of very white skin with no melanin.
  • Scars on your skin from burns or ulcers.
  • A weakened immune system (being immunosuppressed.) This can be from an illness such as HIV or AIDS, or from certain medication which affects the immune system.
  • A job which involves you being outdoors most of the time.
  • Living in a hot country, particularly if you have naturally pale skin.

With all these risks, it is important that we all do our part in the prevention of skin cancer. And for the benefit of your skin health, you can always consult with doctor Dalal Akoury from time to time over the skin cancer prevention techniques.

Holistic cancer treatment strategies: Raising hope for cancer patients

Because of the devastating nature of cancer disease, to reduce the pain, holistic cancer treatment is very necessary. This will need a lot of professionalism to be achieved. Experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center are very categorical that cancer can be avoided if certain things are done right. The prevention element would be the best because it would save us from all the complications that come with the diagnosis of cancer. In this article, we are not going to dwell much on the prevention aspect but to look at the holistic cancer treatment strategies in this order.

Cancer is an immune deficiency condition

First cancer impairs immunity. It is therefore important that we stimulate and support the immune system by taking the following precautions:

  • Chronic infections like Lyme diseases and yeast needs to be detected and removed.
  • Enhance immune defense to cancer
  • Patients’ needs to know their immune status through carrying out laboratory tests
  • Tissue inflammation needs to be decreased to promote healing

Cancer developed over time under the stress of accumulated toxins

To correct this, the body needs to be adequately detoxified.

  • A comprehensive whole body detoxification program in order for other therapies to work effectively
  • Detecting and eliminating food and environmental allergies
  • Detoxification is essential for cancer prevention and treatment
  • Laboratory testing to evaluate heavy metal or environmental toxicity
  • Restoring natural flora to the bowel

Holistic cancer treatment strategies: Malnutrition condition

Correct nutritional imbalances by:

  • Optimal nutrition foods, oral and I.V. supplementation to correct imbalances
  • Laboratory evaluation to determine any nutritional imbalance
  • A comprehensive cancer diet program

It must be appreciated that cancer is a whole body disease involving the body, mind and spirit. That therefore means that incorporating mind and body medication is very necessary. Like for instance:

  • Detect emotional trauma or stress trigger for cancer
  • Relieve stress burden through individual and family support, meditation
  • Use biological, psycho-emotional support to regain harmony of mind/body/spirit

Holistic cancer treatment strategies: Cancer and sugar

Targeted Low Dose/Insulin Potentiation Therapy (TLD/IPT) is a non-conventional protocol for the treatment of cancer based upon the hypothesis that insulin may be used to potentiate the effectiveness of commonly used anti-cancer drugs. Because cancer cells have many more insulin receptors than healthy cells, when exposed to insulin the cancer cells open these receptors and become more susceptible to low doses of chemotherapeutic agents. The chemotherapeutic agents are then given in much lower doses than in conventional therapies because of this insulin effect. TLD/IPT also delivers chemotherapeutic drugs more frequently, also thought to allow a therapeutic impact while imparting fewer side effects and allowing patients a higher quality of life.

Finally cancer has tendency of taking over the bodily systems and progresses in an acidic microenvironment, which partially contributes to pain. This can be corrected by modifying your diet to reduce the acidity in the body, drinking a lot of water, taking foods loaded with good fats, vegetables, lean meat, fish and whole foods. Remember that good nutrition will also help cancer patients through the negative side effects of chemotherapy and radiation

Adulthood overweight and obesity health problems: An all age health complication

It is clearer that being overweight or obese isn’t a cosmetic problem. Ideally these conditions greatly raise ones risk of contracting other health problems some of which are listed below. Looking at these conditions, they are life threatening. That should be a motivation for all of us to seek for lasting solution to all adulthood overweight and obesity health problems. With that great task hanging on us, doctor Dalal Akoury made a decision of creating a medical center (AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center) whose main objective is to transform each individual’s life through increasing awareness about health and wellness and by empowering individuals to find their own inner healing power to avoid the following health problems:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Abnormal blood fat
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Cancer
  • Sleep apnea
  • Obesity hypoventilation syndrome
  • Gallstone
  • Reproductive problems
  • Osteoarthritis

If you are obese, your risk of getting any of the above problems is relatively high than leaner people. It will therefore interest you to note that Dr. Akoury’s practice focuses on personalized medicine through healthy lifestyle choices that deal with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of patching up symptoms. This is what is known as professionalism in addressing obesity and all its attached complication. You may want to call doctor Akoury on telephone number 843 213 1480 for a more comprehensive treatment of your condition today. In the meantime, let us consider discussing some of these health problems progressively as we continue into the discussion.

Coronary heart disease and high blood pressure

As your body mass index rises, so does your risk for coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart. The plaque then blocks the coronary arteries and reduce blood flow to the heart muscle. This can cause some chest pain or a heart attack. Besides that obesity can also cause heart failure. This occurs when the heart fails to pump sufficient blood for the body’s needs.

Adulthood overweight and obesity health problems: Type 2 diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which the body’s blood glucose, or blood sugar, level is too high. Normally, the body breaks down food into glucose and then carries it to cells throughout the body. The cells use a hormone called insulin to turn the glucose into energy.

In type 2 diabetes, the body’s cells don’t use insulin properly. At first, the body reacts by making more insulin. Over time, however, the body can’t make enough insulin to control its blood sugar level.

Adulthood overweight and obesity health problems: Metabolic syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke. A diagnosis of metabolic syndrome is made if you have at least three of the following risk factors meaning that your metabolic syndrome is:

  • Higher than normal fasting blood sugar.
  • Higher than normal blood.
  • Lower than normal HDL cholesterol level.
  • Having extra fat in the waist area is a greater risk factor for CHD than having extra fat in other parts of the body, such as on the hips.
  • Higher than normal triglyceride level.
