The pattern of a woman’s menstrual cycle changes with her body and age. It is quite interesting to learn about these alterations that take a turn almost every decade.
Let us have a quick scan through how our body and menstrual cycle corresponds with age.
Commencing of Period Cycle in Your Teens
Most girls get their first period (menarche) between the age group of 11 and 15. This could be a confusing phase for young girls. This is when they attain puberty involving a lot of bodily changes.
The reproductive system of a girl starts to get activated during this stage. And the sex hormones play tricks with her body and mind.
Most commonly, periods would be irregular in the initial stage. Commencing with spotting and mild periods, the onset of menarche is marked in your teens. It is considered to be the first step to womanhood.

As I get older, I have begun to look more and more for natural ways to care of my body. I have done this for a few reasons. The first is that it’s usually healthier to use natural things rather than manufactured products containing chemicals and God knows what else. The second is it’s almost always if not always cheaper to do things naturally. Lastly, it’s surprisingly easier to mix together a few things from the grocery store rather than finding that one product in the store or ordering it online and waiting for it to arrive. Because of all of these things, we’ve posted about other uses for household items, natural beauty recipes using everyday foods, more natural beauty tips and more. Today, I bring you the plight that has plagued me for years and the ways I have discovered to treat acne naturally. Before you buy some more Clearasil, Neutrogena or Proactiv, give one or more of these ideas a try. I have not bought any acne products since discovering these recipes and I don’t think I ever will. Here are some of the best ones I’ve found to give you some natural help!

Most people are of the opinion that hair loss runs into the family. Children look at their parents who may be balding and assume that this is their future. In a vast majority of cases, hair loss is hereditary, passed down the genes from either side of parentage. Some studies indicate that baldness from the maternal side has a greater chance of it being passed along to a male offspring
Whilst in many situations hair loss does seem to be hereditary, there are, of course, some exceptions to this, but they are not incredibly common.
You may therefore be wondering, what exactly does cause hair loss then? Is it genetically already predetermined that you will lose your hair? The answer is yes, and no! Hair loss is affected genetics but it can be caused by factors that can be controlled or even reversed by outside forces or products.
Hair loss is caused by an increase in DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) in the scalp. A human body is programmed to produce an enzyme known as 5 alpha reductase. When the Androgen hormone in the scalp produces testosterone, which mixes with 5 alpha reductase, it produces Dihydrotestosterone or DHT.
DHT is not well received by male (and some female) hair follicles, cutting off blood supply which is critical to growth of new hair.
Thinning and or balding process begins when this occurs, in other words DHT related hair loss.
DHT is not the only cause of hair loss. Dirt and oil on your scalp can also lead to an increase in the rate of hair loss, as can malnutrition and poor circulation. Lucky for you, plenty of products on the market right now can cancel out the effects of these problems and ultimately allow you to keep your hair.
Even if there are many family members who are presently balding, or indeed are bald already, this may not be your future. You can start as soon as possible to take the right supplements and use the right products to prevent any future hair loss. In the long run you will be glad you did. Even if you have already started to lose your hair, there are some great hair loss products out right now that can really turn things around for you and help you re-grow hair you have already lost.
If hair loss is due to excess DHT hormone, can balancing it regain the lost hair?
Too much protein and high caffeine diet can increase the DHT hormone level which can also destroy hair. If we lower the amount of protein and caffeine intake, will it balance the DHT level and can the hair re-grow?
I have never heard of anyone able to balance the DHT level by lowering the amount of protein and caffeine. High amount of protein which could possibly cause hair loss usually comes from protein shakes or creatine taken for muscle building. It would be much ideal to try and control your DHT levels by consulting with your local doctors

You want a great body and a perfect shape. Obviously you are controlling your calorie intake, but are you
- While studies show that calorie restriction (dieting) is effective, in terms of weight loss, they also show that they are almost useless in isolation in maintaining this weight loss. Whatever you think now, a few days into your diet you will discover that self-denial and abstinence is neither fun nor sustainable over the long haul. However, exercise in combination with dieting has been shown to be significantly more successful in maintaining your new body. Exercise is the single best predictor of your chances of keeping the weight off.

Excess belly fat is a common problem for both men and women. Unfortunately, it isn’t a problem that gets easier to manage as we get older. Indeed, after the age of 30 we start to lose muscle and, because we move less, gain fat. Thus, it becomes increasingly harder to lose belly fat. Where you gain fat and how easy it is to lose belly fat is partly down to genetics. Our genes help determine how many fat cells we have and where these fat cells are stored. Most men preferentially deposit fat in their abdominal area; this is due to the action of male hormone testosterone. The stress hormone, cortisol also encourages belly fat. Women tend to deposit fat on the hips, thighs and buttocks, which is down to the effects of the female hormone, estrogen. For this reason, a woman’s body shape changes and belly fat increases after the menopause when estrogen levels decrease. Though men tend to have more belly fat than women, men generally lose belly fat faster as a result of regular exercise.
