Herbal Treatment For Constipation To Get Relief From Stomach Ache


In the last five years it has been reported that there has been a major increase in people suffering from allergies including hay fever in the UK.

In the last two years I have been suffering between the months of April ' September with the symptoms of allergies which has resulted in discomfort within this period. With this discomfort in mind I decided to research why I was experiencing these symptoms on the internet and I wanted to share with all sufferers the information I found.

The most likely explanation for this has been documented as a combination of summer starting early and the increasing rates of pollution, pollution traps the pollen in the atmosphere which holds it there. The warmer weather has also been blamed, as it tricks plants into pollinating early. The recent water drought has also been part blamed also for the increase in pollen in the air causing suffering.

Hay fever is an allergy to pollens within the male reproductive parts of plants from grasses and trees. When they come into contact with the tissue inside the nose, they trigger an immune reaction that can cause congestion, sneezing, itching, and a runny nose. It can also be triggered by moulds, which are likely to be found in rainy or humid areas. Trees are reported as starting first then grasses and then weeds. Its timing also depends on location the further north, the later it comes. In the UK, trees start in February with grasses running through the summer and mould spores present until October.

I then was left with the options of trying to find suitable ways of eliminating or atleast reducing my symptoms. There are three types of treatment which include anti-histamine tablets, nasal steroid sprays and anti-allergy injections. Many anti-histamine tablets are available over the counter in chemists. They knock out the body's immune system, preventing the pollens from producing an uncomfortable response.

Unfortunately some anti-histamine tablets causes drowsiness which can have effects on the body which can be dangerous when operating machinery or driving a vehicle which require attention at all times. There are products which do not cause drowsiness but these are usually more expensive.

What I didn't know is that a condition called rhinitis gives you the dripping nose in hay fever and also that the pollen season varies by plant. It has also been documented that some people have achieved relief from symptoms by using homeopathic remedies.

It has also been stated that consuming honey produced by bees in your local area or region can help with reducing symptoms. I am currently trialing various over the counter products to counter the effects.


The aim of any blood pressure treatment is to remove the pressure, positive or negative, and restore the blood to its normal level. There are two blood pressure levels which the experts consider as ideal.

The usually accepted target is to reduce blood pressure to below 140/90. Some say it should be below 140/85. But with regards to the levels, your doctor will make the final decision, because he knows your medical history. You might have certain other complications, for which he has to give allowance and due consideration.

The types of medications used to control blood pressure are many. Predominantly, there are five main classes of medicines that are used to control blood pressure. Each company may have its own brand and there are many over-the-counter medicines available.

Diuretics (water tablet) are one such medications available, either through prescription or over-the-counter. It is the most accepted system for treating blood pressure in the UK. A low dose of a diuretic is needed to treat high blood pressure. The most commonly used diuretic in treating high blood pressure is bendroflumethiazide. Other diuretics include:

1. Chlorothiazide

2. Chlorthalidone

3. Cyclopenthiazide

4. Hydrochlorothiazide

5. Indapamide

How do these tablets work?

The idea of these tablets is to increase the mount of salt and fluid that you pass out in your urine. The fluid in circulation is reduced, which in effect, reduces the blood pressure. It might also have a relaxing effect on the blood vessels and they, in turn, reduce the pressure within the blood vessels.

The principle adopted for the diuretic type of treatment is available in certain fruits and herbs, the importance of which is being gradually understood by researchers and scientists. Take garlic, for example. Garlic is regarded as one of the most effective remedies to lower blood pressure. The pressure and tension in the blood vessels are reduced because garlic has the power to ease the spasm of the small arteries. It also slows the pulse and modifies the heart rhythm, besides relieving the symptoms of dizziness, shortness of breath and the formation of gas within the digestive track. These days, garlic capsules are also available. An average dosage of two to three capsules a day is given to make a dent in abnormal blood pressure levels.
