The Menopause and the benefit of Aloe Vera 

What is the Menopause 

The menopause is a natural phenomenon which occurs in all women when their finite number of ovarian follicles becomes depleted. As a result, Oestrogen and progesterone hormone levels fall, and luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) increase in response. Menstruation becomes erratic and eventually stops.

Menopausal symptoms are attributed to tissue sensitivity to lower Oestrogen levels. This primarily affects the oestrogen receptors in the brain. The experience of women varies widely, with some being debilitated and others unaffected by their symptoms. Some women experience symptoms while still menstruating and others not until a year or more after their last period.
Around 80% of women going through their menopause experience symptoms and around a quarter have severe symptoms but only a small proportion of menopausal women take hormone replacement therapy (HRT).Symptoms of the menopause last far longer than most women anticipate; frequent menopausal vasomotor symptoms, including night sweats and hot flushes, persist in more than half of women for more than seven years. 
  1. Menstrual irregularity
  2. Hot Flushes and Sweats 
  3. Urinary and Vaginal Symptoms
  4. Sleep Disturbance
  5. Mood Changes 
  6. Loss of Libido 
Other changes may include brittle nails , hair loss, thinning of the skin and general aches and pains which are due to falling oestrogen levels . 

For all these issues and much more , that's why Aloe Vera is the perfect Anti-dote

As a sufferer my self i wanted to write about this degenrating joint disease and the effects it can have on daily life and also what can help . 

What is osteoarthritis ? 

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that mostly affects cartilage. Cartilage is the slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage allows bones to glide over each other. It also helps absorb shock of movement. In osteoarthritis, the top layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows bones under the cartilage to rub together. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint. Over time, the joint may lose its normal shape. Also, bone spurs may grow on the edges of the joint. Bits of bone or cartilage can break off and float inside the joint space, which causes more pain and damage.
People with osteoarthritis often have joint pain and reduced motion. Unlike some other forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis affects only joints and not internal organs. Rheumatoid arthritis - the second most common form of arthritis - affects other parts of the body besides the joints. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis.
What causes Osteoarthritis ?
Osteoarthritis usually happens gradually over time. Here are Some risk factors that might lead to it these include:
  • Being overweight
  • Getting older
  • Joint injury
  • Joints that are not properly formed
  • A genetic defect in joint cartilage
  • Stresses on the joints from certain jobs and playing sports.
What can help ?

Medication / pain relief can help , surgery also in later stages , but most of all you can make changes to your lifestyle to help . 

Dietary alteration and food supplements to promote changes in cartilage replacement rates. The benefits of chondroitin and glucosamine for joint health are well documented, they are primarily responsible for keeping the cartilage layers well hydrated. Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM) has also been shown in trials to reduce both acute and chronic pain for sufferers. With this type of treatment, there is a requirement to maintain a regular intake.

Here at Luscious Aloe  there are a few products which can help this joint degeneration disease.

  1. Forever Living have a product (Forever Freedom) gel, specifically for persons suffering with osteoarthritis, it contains all the ingredients previously mentioned and has yielded some fantastic results, by preventing further degradation of joint tissue, reduction of pain and increased mobility. The results are from a very extensive collection of personal testimonials made by osteoarthritis and arthritis sufferers.
  2.  Aloe MSM gel can also be bought from here and is an excellent topical application cream that uses aloe as an absorption carrier to take MSM directly into the joint area.

Psoriarsis & how aloe propolis creme can help

What is Psoriarsis ? 

Psoriasis is a long-lasting auto-immune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin.
These skin patches are typically red, itchy, and scaly. They may vary in severity from small and localized to complete body coverage.
In a healthy person, the outer layer of skin is regenerated about once each month, yet with the condition Psoriasis affecting the immune system the process is accelerated and diseased skin is reproduced around every 3-4 days. The faster regeneration process requires more skin to be shed, and this appears as the whitish scales on the surface of the face or body. In this condition, skin becomes cracked and can invariably be more prone to bacterial infections.
Psoriasis forms quite slowly and it’s rare that other symptoms accompany the condition. However, in around 10% of Psoriasis sufferers, Arthritis can form in the joints of the body, causing increased pain and discomfort, which can have a snowballing affect on the Psoriasis itself.

So why Propolis creme ?

Bees are some of natures busiest creatures. They build intricate hives, produce honey, pollinate flowers and provide health supplements to humans in the form of bee pollen and Propolis. The use of bee Propolis as a treatment for various skin ailments has been around almost since the beginning of time.

What Is Bee Propolis?

Propolis is a sticky substance that bees make which is better known as "bee glue". The process 
begins when an expert propolis-making bee gathers resin from cone-producing evergreen trees or from the buds of trees. 
Humans have been using this as an antiseptic since the times of ancient Egypt. Applying Propolis to wounds & skin conditions greatly improved the healing throughout the centuries. 

The Aloe Propolis creme is fab for skin conditions especially psoriasis .  Aloe Propolis Creme is a rich blend of stabilized Aloe Vera Gel and Bee Propolis, with other ingredients recognized for their contribution to healthy skin. Chamomile, one of nature’s best-known skin care herbs, is also added to the mix. Vitamins A and E complete the formula, recognized for their natural skin-conditioning properties.

Aloe Vera and Eczema

The word eczema comes from the Greek word “ekzein” which means “to boil.”
Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a dry skin condition. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms. It is not contagious so you cannot catch it from someone else.
In mild cases of eczema, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and also leaves it open to infection.
Eczema affects people of all ages but is primarily seen in children. Those who “grow out” of their eczema during early childhood may see it recur again in later life.
In the UK, one in five children and one in twelve adults have eczema while eczema and contact dermatitis account for 84-90% of occupational skin disease(According to published data). 
Atopic eczema is a genetic condition based on the interaction between a number of genes and environmental factors. In most cases there will be a family history of either eczema or one of the other ‘atopic’ conditions i.e asthma or hay fever.
Aloe vera is often touted as being a miracle cure for eczema but does it really work? There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that it can be helpful but is there any scientific evidence? The ScratchSleeves team have been digging into the scientific literature to bring you the ultimate fact based guide on using aloe vera for eczema in children.
How Aloe Vera Can Help Eczema
  • Hydrates the skin: There is good scientific evidence that Aloe Vera gel is an effective moisturiser which can increase the water content in the top layer of the skin (the epidermis). This is thought to be due to the high sugar content of the gel which allows it to act as a humectant, attracting and holding water in the epidermis. Increasing the water content of the skin can reduce the ‘tight’ feeling of eczema.
  • Reduces infections – Eczema is often aggravated by infections so minimising them can often make a big difference to a overall eczema symptoms. This is especially true of young children who are prone to getting mucky and scratching and whose immune systems are still developing Several studies have shown that Aloe Vera gel can inhibit the proliferation of various strains of Streptoccocus bacteria and Candida albican (a yeast).
  • Calms the itch: A number of known anti-inflammatory substances have been indentified in Aloe Vera gel which can help calm inflamed eczema and reduce the incessant itching. It also feels really cool when applied to have an immediate calming effect too.
  • May help hydrocortisone work better: There is an indication that Aloe Vera gel may enhance absorption of hydrocortisone into the skin, which suggests that using Aloe Vera gel in conjunction with prescription steroid cream more effective in calming eczema flare ups than just steroid creams alone. While more research is needed to understand and verify this finding, Aloe Vera/hydrocortisone cream is already available in some parts of the world.
