Migraine & Tension Headache:Prevention Breakthrough!

Do you get Migraines? Do you wake up with a headache. Neck pain or sore jaw muscles? Do you suffer from sensitive teeth?

The first clinically proven, non drug method for the prevention of migraine. The NTI-tss is a small, virtually invisable mouthpiece that covers only your upper front teeth while you sleep.

The NTI-tss must be custom-fitted by a dentist which usually takes only one 30 minute visit. In a clinical trial 82% of migraine sufferers who used the NTI-tss 8 weeks had a 77% average reduction in migraine attacks. The NTI-tss device reduced not only migraine but also the need for medication usually taken to treat migaine pain.

Winter Insulation

During the colder months of the year, we take various strategies to combat the cold. Rug ourselves up with jumpers, get in front of a good DVD with the doona over us, stoke up the fire place with a warm Milo; or increase our body fat percentage to create that extra insulation.

Body fat creates insulation did I hear you say? …That’s right! Generally speaking, body fat is a form of insulation. Therefore the more body fat you have, the more insulation you have. That is not to say that the fatter you are the less you feel the cold; everybody on some level will feel cold, but, Generally speaking, the leaner you get, the less body fat you have, the more you will feel the cold.

With this in mind, the colder you are, the more body fat you will burn. I have heard of several bodybuilders who will simply immerse themselves in a cold bath for 30mins to increase the amount of body fat they burn. Keep in mind that we are talking extreme fat loss here - jumping into an ice cold bath is no substitute for not doing your cardio and eating right!

So, your body’s natural tendency is, in periods of colder temperatures, to store body fat to keep you warm. Then during these colder months your natural tendency may be to do the same. If that is the case then recognize it, and go with it!

If you are concerned about how this may make you feel, then be aware of what your body may be trying to do. Compensate for the fact that your body may be operating a little differently. This might include understanding what foods may trigger an increase in body fat with you and eat less of these foods, or simply do more activity!

Remember there is always two ways to look at any situation. During the colder times you could stand around complaining about the fact that you are cold or you could think about how you are simply melting away body fat!

Health Buzz: The latest news on all things good for you!

Brought to you by


Chilblains are patches of red, swollen and itchy skin, believed to be caused by a combination of cold weather and poor circulation. The toes are particularly vulnerable, but other extremities that can develop chilblains include fingers, earlobes and the nose. Tight shoes can also contribute by irritating and pressing on the skin of the toes, especially the little toe. Despite the discomfort, chilblains don't cause any permanent damage to tissue. Not everyone exposed to cold and damp conditions will develop chilblains, which leads some researchers to believe that those who do are overly sensitive to changes in weather and temperature. The elderly, sedentary, teenagers and people with medical conditions (such as anaemia) are most susceptible.

Suggestions for treating chilblains at home include:

  • Resist the urge to scratch, as this will further damage the skin.
  • Use calamine lotion or witch hazel to soothe the itching.
  • Your chemist may also supply a suitable product.
  • Wear woollen or cotton socks.
  • Keep your whole body warm.
  • Gentle exercise will improve circulation to your feet.
