Home remedies for hemorrhoids

       Hemorrhoids (HEM-uh-roids), also called piles, are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. It may be located inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids), which is painless but tend to bleed or they may develop under the surface of the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids), which may cause pain.  Hemorrhoids are common ailments. By age 50, about half of adults have had to deal with the itching, discomfort and bleeding that can signal the presence of hemorrhoids.
      Fortunately, many effective options are available to treat hemorrhoids. Most people can get relief from symptoms by using home treatments and making lifestyle changes. 
      Warm bath. Soak your anal area in plain warm water 10 to 15 minutes 2 to 3 times a day.
      Keep the anal area clean. Clean daily the skin around your anus gently with warm water. Soap isn't necessary for it may aggravate the problem. Avoid alcohol based or perfumed wipes. Just use moist towelettes or wet unscented toilet paper.
      Cold compress. Apply ice packs or cold compress on your anus to relieve swelling. Break ice into small cubes and place it in a plastic, reclosable bag. Cover with a thick paper towel and sit on it! It numbs the region and reduces blood flow to those distended veins.
      Aloe Vera. This plant is a hemorrhoid healer that helps reduce the irritation. Break off a piece of the aloe vera leaf and apply only the clear gel to the hemorrhoids. Apply aloe vera gel to the anal area frequently. It feels good and promotes healing.
      Vicks Vapor Rub. Apply the Vicks Vapor Rub up your ass to ease the discomfort and decrease the hemorrhoid both in size and pain.
      With these treatments, hemorrhoid symptoms often go away within a week. However, don't hesitate to seek your doctor's advice if home remedies won't work.

Friday the 13th, 'the most widespread superstition'

>> Friday, June 13, 2014

      Why is Friday the 13th the most widespread superstition? Many considered Friday the 13th an unlucky and a fearful day. One reason is that both Friday and number 13 have some troubled ties to Christianity. Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday and ever since this day has been associated with 'bad omen'. As for number 13, seating 13 people at a table was seen as bad luck as Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus Christ, is said to be the 13th guest at the Last Supper.
      In the Medieval times Friday was unlucky because it was a 'hangman's day'. This kind of superstition represent a kind of phobia. The fear of Friday the 13th is named paraskevidekatriaphobia which is pronounced as paraskavideketriaphobia. The term is based on the Greek words paraskevi (Friday) and dekatria (thirteen) with phobia as suffix meaning fear. It has been considered an unlucky day since the 14th century.
      Friday the 13th is unlucky for some believing that Friday is an unlucky day and 13 an unlucky number for they associated it with some coincidental bad experiences in their lives not having a second thought that only God conquers all here on earth.
