Liver Function – by Naveed

The liver is the hardest working organ in the human body and performs many functions that are vital to life. It plays an important role in digestion (breaking down of nutrients) and assimilation (building up body tissues). It is the storage site for many essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, copper, B12, vitamins A, D, E and K. Red blood cells, which are responsible for carrying oxygen around the body are also produced in the liver as well as Kupffer cells which help to devour harmful micro-organisms in the blood thus helping fight infection.

 

The liver is also one of the most important organs in the body when it comes to detoxifying or getting rid of foreign substances or toxins especially from the gut. The liver detoxifies harmful substances by a complex series of chemical reactions. The role of these various enzymatic activities in the liver is to convert fat soluble toxins into water soluble substances that can be excreted in the urine or the bile depending on the particular characteristics of the end product. This enzymatic process usually occurs in two steps referred to as phase I and phase II.

 

Phase I Detoxification either directly neutralises a toxin or modifies the toxic chemical to form activated intermediates which are then neutralised by one or more of the several phase II enzyme systems.

 

Phase II Detoxification is also called the conjugation pathway whereby the liver cells add another substance (e.g. cysteine, glycine or a sulphur molecule) to a toxic chemical or drug in order to render it less harmful. This makes the toxin or drug water-soluble so that it can then be excreted from the body via watery fluids such as bile or urine.

 

Disordered Eating and Eating Disorder

Eating Disorder

Eating disorders are complex, chronic illnesses largely misunderstood and misdiagnosed. The most common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating. No one knows exactly what causes an eating disorder, however it can be found among all socioeconomic, ethnic and cultural groups. Eating disorders have numerous physical, psychological and social ramifications from significant weight preoccupation, inappropriate eating behaviour and body image distortion. Many people with eating disorders experience depression, anxiety, substance abuse, childhood abuse and may be at risk of osteoporosis and heart problems.

 

Disordered Eating

Disordered eating is a term used to describe eating habits or patterns that are irregular. Many different types of disordered eating habits exist but for the most part these habits do not add up to a diagnosis of an eating disorder. Excluding whole food groups (for example, all fats or all carbohydrates), eating only specific foods, eating only foods of a specific colour, eating only foods of a specific texture, not eating certain foods together in a sitting and not eating specific foods from the same plate can all be types of disordered eating.

Disordered eating can also be described as changes in eating patterns that occur in relation to a stressful event, an illness, personal appearance or in preparation for athletic competition. Disordered eating also involves people who have no time to eat or plan their meals properly, who often eat fast food or miss meals especially breakfast and who are not aware of their body signals of hunger or fullness.

 

Differences between Eating Disorder and Disordered Eating

  • Eating disorders are chronic and most often even complex illnesses which need concrete treatment and therapies for effective control. Disordered eating on the other hand is not complex enough to be categorised as an illness.
  • Some of the prominent forms of eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, binge eating disorder and bulimia. All of them are known to have damaging repercussions on health. Disordered eating might not have specific names as such. Some forms of dieting or resorting to diet pills and weight loss supplements can also be considered as forms of disordered eating.
  • Whereas eating disorders are most often persistent conditions which might last through the years if left untreated, disordered eating sprees are considered to be rare phenomenon. They might occur as isolated spells and no prevalent trends can be established for the same.
  • Eating disorder can often be considered responsible for serious repercussions. Alternatively, disordered eating is considerably less harmful leading to some nutritional insufficiencies alone.
  • Disordered eating is mostly atypical while the same cannot be said about eating disorders.
  • Disordered eating can often develop into an eating disorder. The reverse however, is not possible.

 

Several studies in the last decade show that eating disorders and disordered eating behaviours are related to other health risk behaviours including tobacco use, alcohol and drug abuse, delinquency, unprotected sexual activity and suicide attempts.

While disordered eating can lead to weight loss or weight gain and to certain nutritional problems, it rarely requires in depth professional attention. However, it may develop into an eating disorder. If disordered eating becomes sustained, distressing or begins to interfere with everyday activities, then it may require professional evaluation.

Male Impotence – Herbal Remedies

Impotence (erectile dysfunction) can be classified as psychological or organic. Psychological impotence is due to mental factors which include depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems, financial difficulties and mental illness. Organic Impotence is due to some form of body malfunction.
Various causes of organic impotence include reduced blood flow to the penis, low levels of androgens such as testosterone, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, and stroke which affect the brain’s ability to respond to sexual stimulation. There are various herbs that are effective in the treatment of male infertility. These herbs help maintain longer erection, increase sexual desire, raise testosterone levels and increase sperm count. The two herbs that could be considered useful for addressing male impotence are listed below along with their benefits:

 

  • DAMIANA

Damiana leaves have been used as an aphrodisiac and to boost sexual potency by the native peoples of Mexico, including the Mayan Indians and is used for both male and female sexual stimulation, increased energy, asthma, depression, impotence and menstrual problems.
The chemical composition of Damiana is complex and all of the components have not been completely identified. However, the known make-up is volatile oil, flavonoids, gonzalitosin, arbutin, tannin and damianin (a brown bitter substance). It also contains essential oils (containing cineol, cymol, pinene), cyanogenic glycosides, thymol and trace amounts of phosphorus.
Damiana has also been used traditionally to improve digestion and to treat constipation, as in larger doses it is thought to have a mild laxative effect.
It is well known in south western cultures as a sexuality tonic and is recommended by many herbalists. It stimulates the intestinal tract and brings oxygen to the genital area, increases blood flow to the genital area during sexual stimulation facilitating erections.
It also increases energy levels which does a lot to restore libido and desire.

 

 

  • PANAX GINSENG

Panax ginseng also called as Red ginseng, Korean ginseng or Asian ginseng is a perennial  plant native to the mountains of Korea and China. Red ginseng is related to but not the same as American ginseng.
Panax ginseng has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 5,000 years. Western medical studies verify that the roots of the Panax ginseng plant contain beneficial plant compounds, including antioxidants and ginsenosides, which may offer a number of health benefits.
Panax ginseng is reputed to be helpful in the treatment of diabetes, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, weakness, depression, and anxiety. Panax ginseng is also supposed to be helpful as a supplement to improve thinking skills, to boost energy, and to cope with stress.
There is evidence that it is helpful with male sexual issues such as erectile dysfunction when taken orally. It is also an ingredient in a cream that is useful in the treatment of premature ejaculation.
It is known to measurably raise testosterone levels and increase sperm count and motility. Ginseng can also increase sexual desire and help alleviate impotence. It is also a natural male tonic that stimulates the immune system.

 

Siberian Ginseng is also known to restore libido and desire but should not be consumed alongside Panax Ginseng. One should always seek advice when preparing or consuming herbal combinations.
