Customers tell us that Melaleuca Original Shampoo leaves their hair silky and shiny. That by itself would make it a favorite but Original Shampoo does so much more. It has an effective dose of naturally healing T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil which makes it effective against bacterial and fungal conditions, and very soothing for scalp irritations.
This Good Housekeeping article has pictures of 7 common scalp conditions. You'll note that some of the scalp conditions are bacterial or fungal in nature. Melaleuca Original Shampoo is very effective for two of the most common conditions: dandruff and lice.
According to the American Lung Association, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) causes serious long-term disability and early death, and is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
People with asthma or COPD have airways that make them more sensitive to dust, mold, pet dander, chemical household products, and more.
You might think that this awful disease is caused by smoking, and yes smoking is a terrible risk factor, but scientists are finding that the roots for developing COPD can go way back, long before lighting that first addictive cigarette.
Some conditions can cause a large number of hairs to prematurely enter into the resting and shedding phase. After giving birth, some women will lose up to one-third of their head hair but will quickly grow it back within the year if properly nourished. Stressful events, such as a high fever, infection, malnutrition, or excessive dieting can cause severe hair loss six weeks to three months after the event. Hair loss is also a symptom of several autoimmune diseases.
Whether we are a man or woman, thinning hair causes stress. Hair loss changes the image of who we see when we look into a mirror. The American Hair Loss Organization tells us that temporary hair loss can be easily fixed with the right treatment and what all hair loss has in common is that something has gone wrong in the body. Hair loss may be triggered by genetics, a variety of diseases, or temporary conditions such as stress, pregnancy, or certain medications.
Hair loss, along with other signs of aging, can be signs of developing heart disease. WebMd reports on a large study that looked at receding hairline and other signs of aging, and a connection to heart attack and heart disease. While knowing about possible risk factors can be scary, knowledge can motivate us to practice prevention.
Osteoarthritis affects the wear and tear of cartilage over a bone where it meets a joint. Approximately 33 million Americans suffer the aches and pains of osteoarthritis. And another 1.3 million Americans suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease that affects the synovial membranes that line the joints. In RA, not only are joints swollen and painful, but they are also "red" and "hot".
Early diagnosis and treatment can help relieve pain and reduce further disability. The Melaleuca Wellness Guide tells us that the best long term treatment is the one that targets the cause. The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown but osteoarthritis often targets the joints most used in work and play.
