No one would love to go bald. Not everyone showing signs of baldness can afford expensive procedures and products for it. Luckily, there is no need to stress over baldness — which can worsen everything — as there are plenty of home remedies for it. Some of the best and boldest of them are actually the simplest.
How you can combat baldness without spending a lot:
Just like what’s mentioned earlier, stress is something that can speed up or exacerbate baldness. In fact, it’s not unlikely for someone who is under a lot of stress to experience severe hair fall. This is the reason why you should try to keep your stress levels to a minimum if you want your mane to stay thick.
Although it’s virtually impossible to lead a stress-free life these days, try your best to dodge as many stressors as possible. Then you may also do yoga, have a massage, listen to music or perform any other relaxing activity to lower your stress levels and ward off baldness.
We all know that onions are good for the health despite of being bad for the breath. Did you know that this foul-smelling herb is actually very good at preventing baldness?
All you have to do is chop up some onions and massage the juice on the affected areas of the scalp. Your scalp may become reddish but this is a sign that the active compounds in onions are stimulating the hair follicles. Thoroughly rinse off with water afterwards or use a mild shampoo to completely eliminate the smell.
One more foul-smelling yet highly effective remedy for baldness is apple cider vinegar. Employing it to thicken your mane is as simple as diluting it with equal amounts of water, and using it as a final rinse after shampooing.
Many people who are bugged by baldness swear by the effectiveness of diluting apple cider vinegar with sage tea, which has antioxidant properties, instead of plain water. By the way, the best kind of apple cider vinegar for baldness is something that’s unfiltered and organic.
Coconut Milk Plus Aloe Vera
Both coconut milk and aloe vera are staple ingredients in so many hair products, most especially those that guarantee to give the consumers thicker and healthier mane. Well, it’s a scientific fact that the said ingredients are very good at thickening the hair, thus stopping baldness in its tracks.
The goal is to mix equal parts of coconut milk and aloe vera gel to come up with an all-natural hair growing paste. Apply on the scalp before going to bed, and then put on a shower cap. Shampoo your hair the following day.
Is there are health food store in your area? Do you know a reputable herbal seller on the internet? If so, consider getting your hands on saw palmetto if you are showing signs of baldness. Saw palmetto is one of the most revered herbs for baldness, as confirmed by many of those who have tried it.
Men most especially can benefit from the use of saw palmetto, which helps normalize the hormones. However, the intake of too much saw palmetto should be avoided. Otherwise, a man who is counting on the said herb may actually grow breasts, which is another thing that can rob him of his self-confidence, just like baldness.
Last but not least, having well-balanced meals can help put a stop to baldness. That’s because it helps supply your body with a range of nutrients that your hair follicles require to work optimally.
See to it that your meals consist of foods that contain: iron, zinc, copper, iodine, and vitamins A, B6, B12, C and E. Also, don’t forget the likes of oily fish, nuts and seeds as they contain healthy fats — they help control inflammation, something that can cause and/or worsen baldness.

Man Hospitalized After Sniffing His Own Smelly Socks
A 37 year old man has been hospitalized after sniffing his own socks for a little too long. The man who has been identified only as Peng from Zhangzhou, southeast China started having chest pains and decided to head to the hospital.
On arrival he was immediately admitted as an emergency case and the doctor ordered an X-ray to determine the cause of his pain as well as the cause of a cough that he had developed.
Peng was diagnosed with a fungal infection of the lungs, and had to stay put in hospital for treatment, while doctors determined the pretty unusual cause.
After taking an oral history from Peng, the doctors discovered that his condition was most likely caused by his habit of smelling his socks after he’d been wearing them.
A fungal infection he had developed on his feet was transferred into his lungs when he sniffed his socks, inhaling some of the fungal spores as he did so.
A local newspaper, Fujian Daily,reported that Peng had revealed to the doctors that he had become “addicted” to smelling the socks he’d worn during the day.
This regular and prolonged deep sniffs of his own socks most likely allowed the fungal spores to spread into his lungs, where they developed into a fungal infection.
Speaking to the Fujian Daily, Dr Mai Zhuanying at the Zhangzhou No. 909 Hospital said, “The infection could also be attributed to the patient’s lack of rest at home as he had been looking after his child, leading to a weaker immune system.”
Peng has been kept in hospital for treatment, and doctors say that he is expected to make a full recovery.
Before you panic and rush to the hospital to tell doctors about that time you sniffed your socks to check if they were clean, this is unlikely to happen to you. A quick sniff probably won’t cause you to be hospitalized, just don’t make it a habit!
3 Activities That Can Help You Manage Arthritis Pain
Arthritis can cause substantial joint pain. Thus, patients with this condition often struggle to stay active. That’s understandable. It’s difficult to move around when your joints ache. However, if you have arthritis, it is actually very important to exercise regularly. Some experts even consider exercise to be the most effective arthritis treatment that doesn’t require patients to take drugs.
That said, you shouldn’t jump straight into a new fitness routine if you have arthritis. It may not be safe to perform certain exercises. Use direct access to physical therapy to coordinate with an expert that can help to develop a workout plan that fits your needs and abilities.
The types of activities they recommend will vary on a case-by-case basis. In general, though, the exercises will belong to one of the following categories:
Aerobic exercise is good for everyone because it promotes cardiovascular health. It’s particularly important for arthritic patients because it also promotes weight loss.
When you lose weight, the amount of stress your joints are under reduces. Staying active and adhering to a fitness plan will help you not only achieve a healthy weight, but also maintain it.
Range-of-motion exercises typically involve simple movements designed to help reduce joint stiffness. An example would be rolling your shoulders backwards repeatedly. These exercises are ideal for patients with limited mobility because they can be performed easily and anywhere.
Your muscles protect your joints. Thus, it’s very important for people with arthritis to focus on exercises that strengthen muscles.
This usually involves some form of resistance exercise, such as lifting weights or doing push-ups. Again, you shouldn’t attempt such a routine on your own without speaking with your doctor and a professional first. Lifting weights is dangerous for anyone without the proper experience and information. By coordinating with a professional, you’ll avoid injuring yourself.
You should also stick to a low-impact activities that are easier on your joints. For instance, walking or jogging is a lot better for an arthritic person than sprinting through rocky terrain.
Applying heat to your joints before working out can also help prevent stiffness later. Apply cold packs to your joints after exercising to reduce inflammation. Of course, you should also stop working out if you feel yourself getting too tired or experiencing too much pain.
That’s less likely to happen if you develop a fitness plan with expert help first. Again, exercise offers major benefits to arthritic people. You’ll get the most benefits when you work out safely.
Young Girls Who Met In Hospital Reunite For “Survivors” Photo-shoot
Two years after beating cancer, four young girls reunited for a celebratory photoshoot, and the pictures are all sorts of incredible. McKinley, Chloe, Ava, and Lauren, were all diagnosed with cancer and were treated at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
The little girls all had different types of cancer, but they all met when being treated in the same ward. The four instantly became very close friends and spent as much time with each other as they could while going through treatments.
Lauren’s mom, Shawna Glynn, said, “She’s three years old and doesn’t have any hair, but all her friends in the hospital look the same way. So it kind of gave her some normality.”
“It was just always a breath of fresh air to see a familiar face, and to know that she wasn’t alone in there.” Another mom added.
The girls’ close relationship also helped their parents cope a little better, dealing with such a trying period in not just their kids’ lives, but theirs as well.
“From the standpoint of a mom, too, having other moms to relate to has been phenomenal. Just to have other people going through it at the same time as us.” Karen Moore, McKinley’s mom said.
“It gives me chills, it makes me want to cry. I mean, I love these kids as if they were my own, for sure. They’re awesome.” Paige Ward, a nurse at Johns Hopkins who took care of all the girls explained.
They may be just little girls, but the hurdles they have been able to overcome at such tender ages are incredibly amazing. What’s even more special about their story, is the beautiful friendship they have all been able to build while fighting such tough battles.
The girls have all beaten cancer, with Lauren finishing her treatment not too long ago and set to start kindergarten soon. The girls are also happy that they now have their long hair back as well and are planning to have their reunions every year.
