Most people experience acid reflux, or otherwise known as acid indigestion, pyrosis, or heartburn, from time to time. In the US, nearly 18 to 28 percent of adults struggle with this common digestive disorder characterized by burning pain in the lower chest. In some people, the pain moves up as the stomach acid flows back into the tube that connects the mouth and esophagus (stomach).

  • Smoking

  • Pregnancy

  • Consuming certain foods such as coffee, chocolate, tomatoes, alcohol, and fatty or spic...

DHEA and what it does

By Aliesha Epps

DHEA is a hormone produced by your body's adrenal glands(these are glands just above your kidneys). Scientists know that it functions as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. Precursors are substances that are converted by the body into a hormone. Your body's DHEA production peaks in your mid-20s and in most people, production usually gradually declines with age. However, DHEA supplements can be made from wild yam or soy.

It has been around for many centuries, with the recorded sighting coming from an Egyptian traveler, Costas, in 5th century AD. Ancient Chinese marketplaces also used them for fiber. Today we use coconuts for their many uses, such as:

A natural sunscreen- Because coconuts occur naturally in the tropics and subtropics, people have discovered that coconut oil works great as a natural protection from the sun. It blocks harmful UV rays, while still letting some through so our bodies can create some much needed vitamin D.

Moisturizer- Coconut oil is great for keeping skin moist and healthy....
