Article by: Maria Karla

Wish you were a blonde? Or do you aspire to be a redhead?

Are you afraid that your brilliant hair coloring ideas will remain only distant dreams? No way. There are ways close at hand to fulfill your dreams.

The Various Hair Coloring Products
Hair coloring products are usually of four categories –
a.) Temporary b.) Semi-permanent c.) Deposit only/demi-permanent d.) Permanent.
All products but temporary color require a patch test before application. The idea is to determine whether the client is allergic to the product.

Acid dyes are used to coat on the hair surface...

Benefits of Alkaline Water

Article by: Michael C.

We get old because we are not disposing of all the internally generated wastes and toxins, and accumulate the leftovers within our body.

Every living cell within our body creates waste products. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients are the waste products. The main ingredients of all foods, expensive or inexpensive, gourmet or junk, vegetable or meat, alkaline or acid, are either carbohydrates, proteins or fats. And they are nothing but the combinations of four elements: carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen.

These acidic wastes and toxins are disposed out of the body in liquid form, as urine or perspiration, that is why urine is acidic and skin’s surface is also acidic...

The Most Common Types of Cancer

Article by: Carol Ann

We do not know many things about cancer, even though research is extensive and ongoing. One of the things we do not know is why some types are more frequently occurring than other types. Despite this, it is worth learning more about the most common types of cancer. In this way, you will be able to take more adequate and timely measures for prevention.

Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer. In the Unites States the estimated number of new cases for 2010 is 222,520. The projected number of deaths from this disease is 157,300. This statistical data is quite frightening for one simple reason – the expected deaths are more than half of the newly diagnosed cases.

The Health Benefits Of Good Sex

Article by: C.H.

Sex is – well, let’s skip that part. I think we all have a basic understanding of what sex is. There is no need to go further down that path. Instead, let us look at some of the healthy benefits of sex and what may be keeping you from having good sex that can lead to good health.

Sex Helps Your Health

Not only does good health lead to good sex, but good sex may lead to good health. This is because sex is very therapeutic to humans in this way – sex helps relieve stress. Your body is not made to handle continual stress. In fact, stress kills cells that help fight sickness and stress greatly reduces endorphin, your body’s natural pain-killer. So the more stress you have, the greater chance you have of becoming sick and feeling aches and pains...

Chronic Fatigue and Women

Article by: James Pendergraft

Because a woman’s body can be subjected to various forms of stress such as those encountered during pregnancy, a lot of ailments affect women’s health.

Is Sugar a Drug?

Article by: Allyson Meyler

Although there are varying perspectives on a “healthy” lifestyle as being, I’d say that most everyone can agree that drug use does not fall into this category. Drugs, and the addictions that often accompany them, can blow in like an unexpected storm, wreaking havoc on the bodies of those who abuse them and the lives of anyone in the destruction’s path. While the initial participation in these substances is often a choice, we’ve come to understand that the mechanism keeping a user coming back for more is based on biology.

The chemicals in drugs activate the reward center of our brains, releasing a powerful surge of dopamine and producing a euphoric “high” that drug users will repeatedly seek out...
