BEWARE OF THE DANGERS OF SIDE EFFECTS PRESENTED AS MAIN EFFECTS

In the medical world, proper use of words is highly called for because a simple mistake could complicate things usually unwanted for the patients. Because this field has full of jargons that mostly are too technical to not easily be sifted and digested by the general public, putting them in a layman’s term is indeed helpful.

A good example of which are the words “side effect” and “main effect”. These, are more often than not, interchanged or used instead of the other. Doing so is not just wrong but also dangerous to the people’s health.

A side effect of any substance pertains to the result beyond the main or primary action that is intended by the physician giving drug prescription. The doctor, likewise, foresees this extra consequence.

For instance, the patient might not be conscious of the side effect of unwanted hair growth elsewhere on the body while using vasodilator drug called Minoxidil to treat hypertension. The physician, nevertheless, is very well aware about it, as well as other implications, such as burning or irritation of the eye, itching, and redness or irritation at the treated area. By and large, doctors suggest that patients should ignore the side effects unless serious and often alert the sick persons about their likelihood.

But not all the side effects are boon. They are bane, too, hence, they are often used as a therapeutic benefit in the pharmaceutical industry. Like the Minoxidil which, initially was developed to treat high blood pressure. People taking it reported an unusual side effect: Hair began to grow on various parts of their bodies. In this case, the downside of the drug is controlled and employed for a beneficial and therapeutic effect judiciously. It is noted that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved prescription of two percent (2%) Minoxidil topical solution for hair loss in men in 1988 and for women in 1992.

An adverse effect, on the other hand, is identified as an outcome wherein the reaction occurs over and beyond the main and wanted action of a medicine. Both the physician and the patient don’t know about it as a consequence of taking such treatment. It can happen simply due to incorrect dosage. Undesirably, this is very harmful as it can exacerbate the prognosis of the disease. Occasionally, if the adverse effect is too serious, there might be a need for hospitalization.

Just like the Sildenafil Citrate— a medication used to treat erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension, the most common adverse reactions include headache, flushing, dyspepsia, abnormal vision, nasal congestion, back pain, myalgia, nausea, dizziness and rash. Patients should seek emergency treatment if an erection lasts over four hours. Patients should stop Sildenafil Citrate and seek medical care if a sudden decrease or loss of hearing and also that of vision in one or both eyes.

Since side effects paired with adverse effects can be fatal and need to be reversed or given antidote immediately, a very extra cautious effort not to interchange them with the main effects in the prescription process must be always observed. After all, it’s the lives of patients at stake here.

It’s ironic to note that people who seek treatments for their ailments or to prolong their lives become sicker or morbidly end up six feet underground simply because of such medical error. So, it’s still best to deal with health conditions like excessive hair shedding and thinning hair the natural way, especially with NOVUHAIR that offers the safe and natural effects.

With 19 natural ingredients—mostly standardized herbal extracts, essential oils and co-factor nutrients – it does not only help prevent such hair maladies, but also aid in maintaining a healthy scalp and “crowning glory.” Set aside those chemical-based topical scalp solutions out there. Choose natural, choose NOVUHAIR!

ABBY ASISTIO: MY HAIR HAS MADE A NATURAL COMEBACK

Abby Asistio was seen and heard when she graced the first season of “The Voice of the Philippines” in 2008. She had left an indelible mark in this reality show not only because of her singing prowess, but also her courageous act to talk about her condition called alopecia on national television back then.

This ailment characterized by excessive hair shedding causes bald patches on the head, receding hairline and sometimes complete baldness. It can be severely distressing and humiliating. What’s more, it can negatively impact one’s self-esteem, appearance, youth and vitality.

But Abby didn’t lose a strand of positivity in life. Just as she embraced her baldness before the eyes of the many, it paved the way for the public to accept her and others suffering from this with open arms. More so, it gave hope to those with the condition to hold on to medical breakthroughs for remedy.

Coming out in the open sans donning hats or wigs, Abby still sought relief from a chemical-based haircare product that only ended up in failure. Patiently refraining from using again ineffective treatments, especially those with scalp-burning chemicals, it finally paid off when NOVUHAIR gave her a shot at nourishing her locks naturally.

NOVUHAIR is fully packed with 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help remedy excessive hair shedding, thinning hair and promote healthy tress and scalp.

Thankful that her tress is back, the singer-songwriter continues to lend herself to be the voice of Alopecia Philippines, a group she founded in 2012 for people afflicted with a condition characterized by a complete to partial hair loss. With NOVUHAIR supporting this cause, Abby sings her heart out to impart to everyone that “bald isn’t bad, but be bold to embrace and correct it.”

BE WELL, LIVE WELL, CHOOSE NATURAL!

Stress is one of the main reasons why we experience hair shedding and hair loss. According to a research, stress and hair loss are related, and the severity of the problem is relative to a person’s stress level.

Exposure to pollution is also one of the causes of HIV—hair is vanishing. Living in urban areas, a study shows that smoke and pollution coming from car exhaust fumes affect the keratin formation in the hair structure that causes every strand to weaken and be damaged, thus, falling out of the head.

If you are a millennial living in the congested cities of the metropolis, exposure to chemicals and pesticides used in the plains can also result to severe shedding and hair loss. Dust particles present in our homes is also one of the main causes of hair problems. Dust irritates and triggers allergies in the scalp that results to infection or inflammation. These are just some of the reasons for various hair problems.

Living in the 21st century, science and technological advancements have opened new doors for the treatment of hair issues. However, going all-natural is still the best option and remedy.

NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion, for example, has 19 natural herbs, essential oils, and co-factor nutrients such as Panax ginseng, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, lemongrass, and virgin coconut oil that work together to replenish and nourish our crowning glory. It penetrates deeply to help rejuvenate, nourish, and maintain moisture in the scalp.

This breakthrough product helps increase nutrition in the hair, prevents dandruff, and improves the overall appearance of the tresses. It gives off a minty and cool effect that will make the hair feel always clean and fresh.

“There are no shortcuts to good health and looking beautiful. There is only one way and that is to embrace a wellness lifestyle. If you truly love yourself, you will go natural,” said beauty and wellness expert Cory Quirino, the new ambassadress of NOVUHAIR.

Destress the tress from your hair solution’s harmful chemicals and free radicals. Choose natural!

SAY NO TO HARMFUL CHEMICALS AND LET NATURE DO THE MAKEOVER!

Got hair problems? Well, don’t pity yourself. You’re just one of the many who also experience these for once or, much worse, the rest of their lives.

According to beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, no matter how old you are and whatever your gender is, hair shedding is a natural occurrence. It happens to everyone, she adds.

Despite this fact, however, you still tend to panic and stress yourself over these issues. So you end up using various products that promise to solve these problems in a quick way. Without due diligence, you have no idea that they contain harmful chemicals and substances that may worsen instead of addressing the condition of your mane.

“Products concocted with artificial chemicals cannot provide long-term benefits. Some products give immediate results, but it is never long-lasting,” Cory enthuses.

Furthermore, using chemical-heavy anti-hair loss products may result to side effects, such as difficulty in breathing and swelling of the hands and feet. Studies reveal that these may be caused by chemicals commonly used by some anti-hair loss products.

So opt for natural products. They are healthy options due to milder formula that does not strip off the hair of its protective oils. Likewise, they are safe to use because they do not irritate the scalp. What’s more, they are suitable for people with sensitive skin.

These are some of the reasons why Cory strongly recommends an all-natural haircare remedy called NOVUHAIR. This topical scalp lotion has 19 natural herbs, essential oils, and co-factor nutrients that work together to help remedy hair problems. It helps increase nutrients to the hair follicles to address hair shedding and dandruff. Moreover, this product gives one the benefit of feeling better, looking better, and living a relatively longer life.

“Wellness is a choice. This is why the use of natural products is a must. There are hair treatment products in the market today that claim to be effective but their ingredients could contain chemicals that may prove harmful with long-term use,” Cory says.

“You no longer have to be scared if you’re losing hair because there’s always hope in a formulation that has all the powerful herbs to help make your hair and scalp healthier. With NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion, you can appreciate the worry-free benefits of using an all-natural product,” she continues.

Better say “NO” to harmful chemical-laced haircare products now than feel sorry in the end. Natural is still the best way to a healthy tress. Choose natural! https://novuhair.us/shop/

CRASH DIET: YOU LOSE SOME POUNDS, YOU SHED MORE STRANDS

Dieting is effective in losing unwanted body fats and, eventually, decreasing weight. While undergoing this process, however, you may end up slimming down your hair instead of getting fit. That is if you do it fast yet wrong.

Most people resort to extreme methods of restricting their food intake, especially after their glutony moments during the holidays or any occasion wherein they can’t resist the temptation of the feast spread before them. It may be a good idea at the time, but more often than not, their New Year weight loss resolution or just a basic crash diet haunts them in the end at the cost of their mane.

Usually, the hair will fall out a month or two after the diet begins at a quicker rate than normal—about an average 100 hairs a day. Dieters may observe an increase in hair fall from the top of their head when the skin on the scalp is more visible. They may also find more strands in the shower after taking a bath.

Why is this so? The shedding is caused by restricting calorie intake inevitably. It means that your ingestion of nutrients will decline sharply. Since the hair system is very sensitive to changes taking place in any of your body parts, Telogen Effluvium may happen.

This hair loss condition occurs when the follicles stop growing prematurely and enter the telogen or resting phase. While the affected hairs will remain at this stage for a few months, but still they will fade away. So theoretically speaking, you could have given your diet the boot long prior to the moment when your tress vanishes.

Luckily for those who have been taking vegetable juices and breathing fresh air for the past few weeks, hair loss from Telogen Effluvium should regrow after several months. However, hair still needs a helping hand for it to go back to its previous luster, especially if a nutrient deficiency is still ongoing.

Rather than starving yourself, ditch your crash diet for a balanced nutrition. Eat food that promote healthy locks. For instance, liver contains biotin that helps the hair to grow. Sweet potato is rich with vitamin A that helps secrete sebum, a substance that prevents hair breakage. For zinc and selenium that treat many hair issues, such as hair graying, losing hair, and dandruff, eggs are a good option.

Bean sprouts are ideal for the mane’s nutrient absorption. You can go nuts for its Vitamin E contents that contribute to a robust scalp.

It is, likewise, suggested to have a regular exercise schedule in your daily routine. Because you perspire when you flex some muscles, sweating from the scalp aids to unclog the hair follicles, giving enough space for the new hair to grow. Exercising also pumps up the flow of the blood to our muscles, skin and scalp, thus bringing in more nutrients and more oxygen to the hair roots, and thereby promoting healthy hair growth.

If you think you must crash diet, the best way to avoid hair loss is to take a high-quality mane care product to compensate for the nutrients that are lacking in your body. Worth considering is NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion. Packed with 19 natural ingredients, it penetrates deeply into the scalp to help promote blood circulation, improve overall appearance, nourish and rejuvenate the hair.
