Synthetic HGH Under Review

What many people don’t know is that HGH, the synthetic form that mimics the human form which is responsible for the “youth” benefits it offers to people when they are very young and still growing, is actually used medically for a variety of conditions and diseases.

It is used in children with growth deficiencies for example. Because some children have rare disorders where they do not grow like they should be growing when they are younger and should be having natural growth spurts, they are put on medically prescribed HGH.

This helps the bones to be able to growth longer, which encourage height growth in these children. It can also be used in adults who have not achieved height with age.

It is also used to treat chronic renal deficiency in adults and children.  When some numbers were crunched and it was found that children on HGH actually had a slightly higher death rate than children who were not on this form of HGH, a study was commissioned to look at whether this higher death rate was something to worry about.

Sometimes, things like this don’t show a statistically significant enough risk, and the benefits of a medication outweigh the risks.

The research did not show a large enough danger. Still, for any adults doing medical HGH for it’s anti aging benefits should probably think twice about it, as there are really no long term studies that show it is safe for this type of long term, therapeutic use.

There are some excellent alternative supplements that increase HGH out there though. These natural HGH supplements actually help coax the body into making more of it’s own precious HGH (Human Growth Hormone) instead of relying on the actual synthetic hormone to be injected and potentially putting one’s health at risk.

 

Puerto Rican Children Have Much Higher Asthma Rates

Asthma is a fairly common breathing condition where one feels like they are having a hard time breathing. It is due to the constriction of the bronchial tubes, and it has a lot to do with psychological influences as well as physical influences such as exertion and allergies to certain things in the air or that you eat.

Puerto Rican children actually suffer from asthma more than other nationalities, and it is not known exactly why this is yet. The theory of the children who actually live in Puerto Rico having much higher rates of asthma this year at least is that there were a lot of heavy rains.

These heavy rains theoretically caused more mold spores, and mold is a common trigger of asthma for a lot of people.  But what of the Puerto Rican children here in the US that also have higher rates on any given day than non Hispanic children?  And why do they not respond as well to common medical asthma treatments like albuterol?

We know we have some excellent asthma remedies at our fingertips these days, but what of the child who needs instant relief fast or else they could be in serious trouble?  Drugs like Albuterol are needed for emergency situations, and these children do not react well to this drug.

Drug companies are of course working to come up with something, but it is baffling he medical community as to why this particular demographic is having so many more problems with this disorder.

What are some of the common triggers of asthma in kids and adults?  Well, they can vary greatly from person to person. I like to think that asthma is a very individual health issue, and that individuals usually have different triggers.

Lots of people with asthma get attacks when exposed to allergens, such as dust mites, mold, any kind of food they may be allergic to, and more. And many more people, like myself, get asthma more easily when they eat more sugar in their diet, and when they are under a lot of stress of going through a period of heavy anxiety in their lives.

Herbal remedies for asthma really focus on relaxing the mood, and relaxing and helping to open the bronchial passages that get so restricted when we have an attack and make us feel as if we have a giant rubber band around our lungs, or like someone is standing on our chest.
