Dissolve Destructive Behavioral Problems Caused by Trauma?Practice 21-day Rule to Break a Habit and End Pain

Have you experienced pain in your life? As a result, have you fallen into destructive behaviors of anger, depression, guilt or shame? Is there an easy way to end pain and any associated emotional responses? What is one such practical solution?

The physical body operates on impulses received from the brain. According to scientific research, the brain is similar to the electric circuitry in your home. There are lines, or pathways, on which the current runs and connects to other lines, providing great sources of energy, and in turn, lighting up different areas of the home. In the human body, these pathways ‘light up’ different areas of the body, allowing them to operate.

Scientists have also determined that the more one feels and focuses on a thought, the stronger and more defined these pathways become in the brain. In fact, it takes 21 days of repeated thought patterns, without interruption to stabilize these conduits. In effect, if you focus on something for 21 straight days, it becomes a habit, as you etch new connectors into the circuitry of your brain.

When you experience emotional or physical trauma, damage can occur to the connectors already inside your brain. That distress can effectively cut the free-flowing constructive pathways in your brain. Therefore, the pain may have diminished your previous happiness and joy. Furthermore, you may begin to dwell on destructive thoughts of sadness, anger, and guilt instead of feeling constructive, happy thoughts.

As shown, if you think you are in pain and are angry, sad, or guilty for 21 days or longer, then you retrace a new connector, forming a habit. However, the new link made up of these destructive emotions will not generate constructive emotions, but will only further exacerbate your pain.

What is the answer to change the pattern and break a bad habit? Could it be a choice to work at changing the pattern, similar to dieting to lose weight? With continued effort, it is possible to see effective results using the scientific method of the 21-day rule for forming a habit. Therefore, might it be beneficial for you to redirect your energy, thoughts and feelings to happy thoughts to enjoy a joyful life again?

Hair Loss Caused By Hormones

Hair Loss Caused By Hormones

As early as ancient times, the Greeks have documented that eunuchs never go bald. Same happened in Egypt and China where eunuchs are often employed as servants or priests by their royal rulers. It is interesting to read these observations that are just now getting medical enlightenment from clinical studies on the effect of hormones on hair loss. Eunuchs have had their testicles taken out at an early age as social casting requirement. It’s called castration. It’s also observed that men whose testicles had been castrated as a result of battle wounds don’t go bald. Any connection here?

Yes, the testicles are primary the body organ responsible in the production of the predominantly male hormone testosterone. Historic references to eunuchs and genital-injured warriors have long suggested that hair loss caused by hormones is a fact. In particular, the male hormone testosterone has a lot to do with hair loss. Only lately has it been discovered that a testosterone hormone more specifically known as dihydrotestosterone or DHT is responsible for genetically predisposed men. Hair loss caused by hormones are classified as androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness.

Androgenetic Alopecia or Male Pattern Baldness Male pattern baldness or MPH, medically termed Androgenetic Alopecia to describe genetic predisposition, is the major cause of hair loss, accounting for about 95% of its causes. It is caused by DHT reaching the hair follicles to inhibit hair growth and eventually produce fine nearly invisible hair strands that easily fall off. DHT gets overly produced by the instigation of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase triggered by some genetic instructions most likely passed onto the male by the X chromosomes coming form the mother’s side.

In addition, prostate disorders notably the non-cancerous benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlargement of the prostrate gland has been known to cause hair loss due to the inability of the prostrate gland to expel DHT that it uses for cell division. This causes excess DHT to form in the body in males who are otherwise not genetically predisposed to androgenetic alopecia.

Hair loss is natural. However, hair loss becomes an alarming condition when a person loses more than the usual amount of hair that he sheds. If you are looking for more information about Hair Loss Caused By Hormones, visit us at now!

Water Retention Caused by Hormonal Imbalance

Water Retention Caused by Hormonal Imbalance

However, it is also true that many people, after they have corrected their diet and completely detoxed, still suffer from water retention. Medical staff need to accept that there are many other causes of water retention, especially as those causes have regularly been identified by researchers.

We haven’t got space here to look at these individually and I’m sure that you would tire before reaching the bottom of the article if we did. So, we need only list them below. Research has identified that these factors all contribute to water retention and from scanning the list you’ll no doubt identify with at least one cause, other than diet, which is likely to be attributed to your own.

Food Intolerance

The Contraceptive Pill

abuse of laxatives

abuse of diuretics

abuse of drugs


poor kidney function


poor food digestion

heart problems

protein or thiamine deficiency

varicose veins

sodium retention (poor magnesium & calcium balance)


poor magnesium & calcium balance in the body



allergic reaction

Four significant causes in this list can only affect women and so it is hardly surprising that women are still the main sufferers after diet has been corrected, whereas in men, a change of diet is usually sufficient to resolve the problem.

Hormonal changes caused by the contraceptive pill, HRT, PMT and pregnancy are the next major contributing factors. If you are one of these women who suffer from hormonal imbalance, howsoever it affects you, it is highly recommended that supplements are taken to control this. Hormonal imbalances cannot be corrected by everyday diet but herbal supplements such as StarFlower Oil, Evening Primrose and many Chinese herbal remedies greatly improve hormonal balance. Ingredients such as Dandelion, Fennel seed, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Celery seed, Potassium, Calcium, Uva Ursi, Horsetail and a herb called Tang Kuei. A number of these can be found in everyday foods but many cannot and a supplement is by far the easiest way to ensure the perfect balance is attained to achieve good results.


Tang Kuei specifically recovers hormone balance

Chinese herbalists have known about Tang Kuei for many centuries as a muscle relaxant and aid to hormonal balance. It is part of a daily regime for thousands of Chinese women.

Used here in conjunction with Chamomile (also known for its calming properties) to help control the hormonal imbalances which cause mood swings, hot flushes, PMT and the discomfort of monthly muscle cramps.

Tang Kuei is a very popular product amongst women worldwide for it’s calming effects and water balance control at certain times of the month.

Tang Kuei in tablet form

Suzanne Herwish is a Herbal Nutrition advisor and distributor for Herbalife – a worldwide herbal company that specialises in perfectly balanced nutrition to irradicate day to day health problems which are so easily resolved through diet. If you suspect your water retention is due to hormonal imbalance but have not yet tried a change of diet, visit my resolve water retention through diet blog first. Diet is the most common cause. Once you have eliminated the effects of poor diet then it is most likely to be a hormonal imbalance and Tang Kuei is a highly recommended and effective herb.
