How to Avoid Neck and Back Pain from Backpacks

How to Avoid Neck and Back Pain from Backpacks

happy childrens group in schoold have fun and learning leassos

If you’re like most parents, you remember sending your kindergartener off to school with a backpack bigger than they were. While your child may be able to shoulder it, students are now weighed down more than ever by these cumbersome packs.

Which is why, say experts, more kids than ever before are complaining about back and neck pain. With school starting up again, a likely reason for the complaints is the heavy load they’re carrying (and we’re not talking about classes), with everything from textbooks to laptops to musical instruments crammed inside.

Consider this: “The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission calculated that carrying a 12-pound backpack to and from school and lifting it 10 times a day for an entire school year puts a cumulative load on youngsters’ bodies of 21,600 pounds,” the New York Times reported, “or the equivalent of six mid-sized cars.” No wonder experts warn that kids are putting themselves at risk of even more serious conditions, such as stress fractures in the back, inflammation of growth cartilage, and nerve damage in the neck and shoulders.

“Over time, the heavy weight of a backpack can cause an unnatural alignment of the spine as students are forced to offset the pressure by arching the back or bending forward at the hips,” said Sherry McAllister, DC, executive vice president of the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, adding that students who are already prone to slouching may experience further pain from sitting at a desk for prolonged periods.

Doctors of chiropractic, who have a minimum of seven years of higher learning, specialize in providing drug-free, hands-on care that helps to naturally align and strengthen the spine. And since they also routinely advise on proper body positioning — especially important to ensure while children are still growing — the Foundation is confident in offering backpack-related tips:

• Limit packs to no more than 10 percent of a kid’s weight.
• Packs with padded straps and multiple compartments help distribute weight.
• Wear straps evenly on both shoulders, and not on just one shoulder.

Champion Bodybuilder CRUSHES Competition on 85g of Protein

Champion Bodybuilder CRUSHES Competition on 85g of Protein

 

When you look at the big dudes competing in the Mr. Universe,
Natural Olympia or any big bodybuilder competition what do
you immediately assume?

You assume that they are taking MASSIVE amounts of
protein and possibly even anabolics to get THAT big right?

You’re not alone in your assumptions.

Everyone who works out and tries gaining lean muscle automatically
goes on a HIGH protein diet – sometimes in excess of 300 grams per day.

I am here to tell you some good news.

This is OVERKILL and you are WASTING money.

If you think that consuming more protein will equal more muscle,
you may be sadly mistaken and be disappointed with your results.

More protein does NOT equal more muscle.

Consider that a there are a large number of vegetarian bodybuilders
out there who don’t get anywhere near the amount of protein in a day
as meat-eating bodybuilders but yet they are just as massive.

So what’s the big secret?

I was a bit of a skeptic myself about the whole vegetarian bodybuilder
thing but as it turns out, all that was needed for a Mr. Universe athlete
to conquer his competitions was 85 grams of protein per day!

If you want to know how you can maximize your best body composition,
build more muscle and burn more fat all while taking in LESS protein,
you should really check out the free guide called The Enzymatic Edge guide over on this page.

PS. You don’t have to go ‘vegetarian’ for these methods
to work…you can continue whichever nutrition plan
you are currently on.

The protocols and tips in this guide are simply to help
you assimilate MORE from your protein consumption
in turn, allowing you to require less in total.


Treatment for Vitiligo 

Treatment for Vitiligo 

What is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is a skin disorder that causes patches of white skin to appear on different parts of the body.  It can occur in anyone and affects all races and both genders equally. Worldwide, about 100 million people suffer from this condition and its prevalence in the United States is estimated to be around 1%.
What Causes Vitiligo?
In vitiligo, the cells responsible for giving the skin’s its color (the melanocytes) are destroyed, hence the appearance of white patches. There may be several factors that can cause these cells to be destroyed, and sometimes the exact cause is unknown. It is believed that vitiligo may be an autoimmune disease, which causes the immune system to start attacking the melanocytes. It can also arise due to a disorder in the melanocytes themselves, causing them to trigger pathways that result in ‘cell suicide’. Some researchers also believe that sunburn and chronic stress can cause vitiligo.
Symptoms of Vitiligo
The main symptoms of vitiligo are white patches on the skin. These patches often spread and become larger with time. The rate of spreading is highly variable – some people report very quick spreading while in others they spread slowly over several years. These patches tend to be found mostly on the areas that are exposed to the sun, such as the hands, feet, face and around the lips. However, they are also commonly found in the armpits and groin, at the navel, in the genital area, and at the nostrils. In addition, people with vitiligo often suffer from early graying of the hair.
Diagnosis of Vitiligo
White patches of skin are tell-tale signs of vitiligo, but there are other factors that confirm this diagnosis. These include whether the patient has a parent who suffers from vitiligo, whether autoimmune diseases run in the family, and whether the patient experienced grey hair before the age of 35. Sometimes, a biopsy and a blood test will be used to rule out other medical conditions.
How is Vitiligo Treated?
Treatment for vitiligo is still a highly-researched and changing area. Treatment will depend on the extent of the condition, and also how much the patient can afford, as many treatments tend to be very expensive. In addition, even the most specialized treatments are not always effective and are associated with a number of side effects.
Usually, one of the first treatment options recommended is steroid therapy and/or immunomodulators. However, both these pharmaceutical treatments can only be used in the short term and are notoriously ineffective and suffer from a high incidence of side effects. Another treatment option involves the use of ultraviolet light coupled with medications. However, this involves bi- or tri-weekly visits to a specialized clinic for weeks or months is very expensive, and side effects include eye damage and an increased risk of skin cancer.
Yet another treatment option involves surgical skin grafting, but sometimes this causes skin trauma that ends up aggravating vitiligo even more. For very small patches of white skin, tattoos are sometimes used to cover these up.
It is interesting to note that as early as the 1980’s, medical researchers had reported that they cured people of vitiligo using herbal extracts, mega doses of vitamins or a combination of herbs and vitamins. Several such reports were also published in the 1990s; for example, there was a group of Swedish doctors who cured patients of their vitiligo in just 3 weeks using only vitamin supplementation. However, nowadays such research has been hidden both from the general public and from the scientific community itself. This is because there is too much money involved in the more expensive treatments, and indeed vitiligo accounts for a large chunk of the pharmaceutical and medical industry’s annual revenue. Doctors who know about the natural cures for vitiligo will not mention it as doing so will cause them to miss out on thousands of dollars from each patient. Worse, young doctors may never know about the natural alternative, as this research has been removed from all modern medical textbooks.
Due to the pharmaceutical and medical industry’s wide-reaching influence and the money involved for all health professionals who deal with vitiligo, very few are willing to publicize findings that vitiligo can indeed be treated naturally, safely, extremely cheaply and in just a few weeks. One of these few medical researchers who dares to go against the current is Michael Dawson, a UK-based researcher and certified nutritionist who is doing a lot of work to try to make these findings available to the general public. He is the creator of the “Natural Vitiligo Treatment System™”, a step-by-step guide to self-curing vitiligo holistically using an amalgamation of all the research done in the area together with his own research and self-experimentation.
Vitiligo Treatment
Vitiligo is a skin disorder affecting about 100 million persons worldwide. It is characterized by white patches of skin on different areas of the body, caused by a destruction of the melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells. Current medical treatment for vitiligo includes medications and surgery. Unfortunately, all treatments are notoriously ineffective, associated with a high risk of side effects and are often unaffordable for most people.
Medical Treatments
Medical treatments include topical steroid therapy, psoralen photochemotherapy, and depigmentation therapy.
In topical steroid therapy, you are required to use steroid creams on the white patches of the skin, and this is supposed to help the skin re-pigment itself. Doctors recommend that you use these creams at least for 3 months before any improvement can be expected to be seen. However, these creams are associated with a number of side effects and are not generally recommended for children or for patches of the white skin occurring on the face, armpits or genital region.
In psoralen photochemotherapy, ultraviolet light is used to re-pigment the white patches, in conjunction with psoralen cream or oral medications. This is extremely time-consuming and you will need to undergo bi- or tri-weekly sessions at a specialized clinic for several weeks or months. This type of treatment is associated with a number of severe side effects, including an increased risk of skin cancer, severe sunburn, blistering of the skin, and eye damage.
If your vitiligo is extensive, you may opt to have the rest of your skin de-pigmented, so that it matches the color of the vitiligo-affected parts. De-pigmentation involves the use of chemicals that basically bleach the skin. Side-effects include inflammation, itchy and dry skin, and extreme sensitivity to sunlight.
Surgical Therapies
If medical therapy proves ineffective (as it often does), surgical therapies may be opted for. Unfortunately, these are not generally paid for by insurance carriers, hence making them unaffordable to most patients.
A common surgical therapy for vitiligo is the autologous skin graft, wherein a doctor takes some skin from an unaffected area (e.g. the buttocks) and attaches it to a de-pigmented area (e.g. on the arms). This operation suffers from complications such as infection, scarring, and cobblestone appearance of the skin.
Another type of surgical therapy is special tattooing. Effectively, the doctor will try to find a dye that matches the natural color of the person’s skin, and apply this dye into the skin. Obviously, it is hard to find a dye that matches the natural color perfectly. In addition, whilst normal skin changes in color according to different levels of sun exposure, the tattooed skin won’t.
A Better, Safer Option
Although very few doctors will know or tell you about it (there is too much money involved in conventional treatment methods), you can actually cure yourself of vitiligo at home using only herbal and vitamin supplements, combined with some dietary and lifestyle changes. Indeed in the past, a number of doctors and scientists had reported such successes in medical journals, but this research is now kept hidden by the pharmaceutical industry.
For the first time ever, this research has been dug up and used to compile a comprehensive step-by-step guide on exactly what you need to do to naturally and safely cure yourself of vitiligo in just a few weeks – without any medications or surgical interventions.

Natural Vitiligo Treatment – The Vitiligo Cure That Doctors Don’t Want You To Discover
Vitiligo is a skin disorder that causes white patches of skin to appear on different parts of the body. Common areas include the body parts most exposed to the sun (such as the hands, face, and feet) as well as areas such as the armpits and the genital region. The patches tend to spread, sometimes very slowly over a number of years and sometimes in a matter of days.
Vitiligo affects about 100 million people worldwide. In the United States and Europe, the prevalence is estimated to be about 1% of the population. It affects all races and both genders equally.
Medical treatments for vitiligo are notoriously expensive, ineffective and associated with a high risk of side effects. Unfortunately, these people with this condition are often desperate for a cure and are willing to pay any price tag, even when they are told about the problems and limitations of the therapies. Every year, the pharmaceutical industry keeps coming up with new, more expensive and still ineffective therapies. And, the profits for the industry keep increasing…
In fact, according to ASDReports.com, in 2011 the vitiligo therapeutics market was estimated to be worth $1.4 billion. By 2019, it is estimated that this market will grow to $2.7 billion, in other words, doubling the profit and this already lucrative niche.
Knowing this, if I had to tell you that there was a way to cure vitiligo naturally, without using any medications, special therapy or surgery…would you be surprised that no doctor is telling you about it? Of course not! In fact, each patient that a doctor treats vitiligo brings in on average $2,000 to $4,000 yearly, making them one of the most profitable patients to have.
Well, guess what, there is such a cure! And it only involves the use of herbal extracts, vitamin supplementation and some dietary and lifestyle changes.
And that’s not all. You see, this is not ‘new’, or ‘cutting-edge’ research. Not at all – in fact, medical scientists have published reports about how they cured vitiligo in just a few weeks using only natural extracts and nutrients as early as the 1980s! And again in the 1990s, there were several reports by Swedish doctors about how a single herb and/or vitamin supplementation can halt the spread of vitiligo immediately and cure it completely in a matter of weeks with zero side effects.
Now, you may expect such great findings to make big news right? Not so. You see, the pharmaceutical and medical industry is driven by profits, not benefits to patients. That’s why they keep designing drugs that are expensive, of limited effectiveness, and that need to be taken continuously for years. That’s the perfect combination for ensuring ever-increasing profits. An example of such shameless profiteering on a large scale is the wide prescription of statins for anyone with even borderline high cholesterol. Statins actually have very limited effectiveness, are associated with a number of side-effects, and…guess what…once a person starts taking them, they will need to keep taking them for their whole lives! Not so surprising is it? Same with vitiligo cures – no medical professional or anyone involved in the industry will want you to discover that you can cure yourself of vitiligo for just a few dollars worth of supplements when they can get you to pay thousands for their “latest technology” therapeutic treatments!
Well, now you know better…
If you want to know more about the natural cure for vitiligo that the medical industry is striving so hard to keep hidden from you, the go-to guy is Michael Dawson. Dawson is an independent nutritionist and biomedical researcher, who in recent years has been working hard to expose the medical industry’s unscrupulous tactics. He has also published the highly acclaimed “Natural Vitiligo Treatment System™”, which you can order directly from his website www.naturalvitiligotreatmentsystem.com.
Vitiligo FAQ
What is Vitiligo? Vitiligo is a skin condition characterized by loss of pigment; this results in white patches appearing on the skin and mucus membranes.
Who Is At Risk Of Developing Vitiligo? Anyone can develop vitiligo and both genders have an equal chance of getting vitiligo. All races exhibit a similar prevalence of this condition. However, you are more likely of developing vitiligo if a parent has it if you or someone in your family has an autoimmune condition (such as hyperthyroidism), and if you experienced graying of hair before the age of 35.
What Is The Prevalence of Vitiligo? Vitiligo affects 1 to 2% of the population worldwide and it is estimated that between two to five million Americans have the condition. Generally, vitiligo develops between the ages of 10 to 30.
What Causes Vitiligo? The symptoms of vitiligo arise because the melanocytes (the cells that produce a pigment which gives the skin its color) are either destroyed or stop functioning. What causes this to happen is still debatable – it may be the result of an autoimmune reaction, genetics, or possibly an event such as sunburn or emotional stress.
Is Vitiligo Contagious? No, vitiligo is not contagious.
What Are the Symptoms of Vitiligo? People with vitiligo exhibit irregular white patches on different parts of the body, and these patches of growing bigger with time. Usually, the first white patches appear on the face, lips, hands, arms, and feet. Later, they spread to other areas including the armpits, eyes, genitals, and nostrils. Loss of pigment can also result in the eyes and hair.
How Is Vitiligo Diagnosed? A doctor will diagnose vitiligo by doing a physical examination, taking a patient’s history and possibly carrying out a biopsy and/or blood test to rule out other conditions.
How Is Vitiligo Treated? Conventional medical treatments for vitiligo include UV light therapy re-pigmentation, corticosteroids (oral or topical), skin grafting, skin tattooing, and in extensive cases of vitiligo, de-pigmentation of the rest of the skin to match the color of the affected skin.
Is Vitiligo Treatment Effective? Unfortunately, no method has a guaranteed success. Steroids may produce some improvements if used in the long-term, but this is not recommended because of side effects. Light therapy is effective to an extent, but it is very time consuming and can cause eye damage, skin burns and skin cancer. Skin grafting should, in theory, be very effective, but in reality, many complications occur, including rejection of the graft, infection, and abnormal appearance of the grafted skin (cobblestone effect).
Is It True That Vitiligo Can Be Cured Without Any Medications Or Surgery? Yes, there have been numerous research papers published that reported that in scientific trials, patients have been cured of vitiligo using a combination of 3 vitamins, herbal extracts or a combination of herbals and vitamins. It has also been shown that dietary changes can have a pronounced effect on the condition. A lot of research on natural cures for vitiligo has been carried out in Sweden.

White Patches on Skin – Vitiligo
White patches on the skin are a characteristic symptom of vitiligo, a skin disorder that causes the destruction and/or malfunction of the pigment-producing cells. Often these patches are present on the body parts that are most exposed to the sun, such as the arms, hands, legs, feet, and face. White patches can also occur at the navel, armpits and genital region. In addition, persons with vitiligo typically exhibit early greying of the hair. It is estimated that 1% of the USA’s population has vitiligo, and in total, around 100 million people worldwide suffer from this condition.
It is still not known for sure what causes vitiligo. The main theory is that vitiligo is an autoimmune disease, which results in the body’s immune system attacking the melanocytes (pigment-producing cells). In fact, people with another autoimmune disease such as hyperthyroidism and adrenocortical insufficiency are more likely to suffer from vitiligo. Some researchers also believe that events such as severe sunburn, certain medications, and emotional stress can trigger vitiligo. In addition, there appears to be a genetic component as well.
There are a number of treatment options for vitiligo; however, all suffer from high rates of ineffectiveness and risk of side effects. Furthermore, most are long-term therapies (e.g. PUVA therapy requires bi- or tri-weekly visits to a specialized clinic for weeks or months) and are not generally paid for by insurance companies. This often makes these treatments too expensive for most patients.
One of the most basic treatments is topical steroid therapy, which involves the use of steroid cream on the white patches of the skin. This may help to re-pigment the skin; however, results come very slowly (after several months). In addition, steroids are associated with a number of side effects, including a weakened immune system and skin irritation. A more advanced treatment involves photochemotherapy in combination with oral or topical psoralen. Although this approach is generally more effective than steroid therapy, it is also much more time-consuming, expensive and is associated with severe side effects including skin burns, eye damage, and skin cancer. There are also a number of surgical therapies for vitiligo, such as skin grafting. Again, this is not always effective as the graft may be rejected. Surgical procedures can also have complications such as infections, scarring, and ‘cobblestoned’ skin appearance.
A much better and safer option is to cure vitiligo using a holistic, natural approach. This involves using herbal extracts to halt the spread of vitiligo and combination therapy with vitamins (three vitamins appear to be particularly effective) to stimulate the melanocytes to start producing pigment again. This should be combined with dietary and lifestyle changes (such as avoidance of certain foods) to ensure a fast and permanent cure for vitiligo. Using such a holistic approach can permanently cure vitiligo in just a few weeks. Best of all, such a method is free of side effects because no artificial chemicals or medications are used. The most famous proponent of such as system is Michael Dawson, a certified nutritionist, health consultant, and independent medical research. Dawson is the author of “Natural Vitiligo Treatment System™”, a step-by-step guide on how to cure vitiligo naturally and safely.
