Frequent migraine headaches can rob you of your quality of life. They not only produce throbbing in the head, but can also be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, sound, etc. They can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours and be debilitating and agonizing. However, by understanding the potential triggers and how to prevent or stop migraines naturally, you can greatly reduce their occurrence and strength. Its also good to keep in mind that learning what works and doesn’t work for our own bodies takes time and dedication of personal observation over time.

This Sunday morning I arrived a few minutes late at the Center for Inquiry – Los Angeles, to help with our booth preparation for the 17th Annual Los Feliz Village Street Fair event, literally just around the corner.
An entire street (Vermont Avenue) was blocked off starting
at Hollywood Blvd. and stretching for a number of blocks up to Franklin Avenue. There were two performance stages – one at
each end – and bands were scheduled to entertain throughout the event (11 a.m.

Generic Name: EMOLLIENTS - TOPICAL Aquaphor With Natural Healing Top Uses
This medication has 2 types of ingredients (emollient,
keratolytic) that work together to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy
skin (e.g., eczema, keratosis, xerosis). Dry skin is caused by a loss of water
in the upper layer of the skin. Emollients are substances that soften and

work by forming an oily layer on the top of the skin that traps water in the
skin. Petrolatum, lanolin, mineral oil, and dimethicone are common
Lactic acid, salicylic acid, and urea are keratolytics.
They increase moisture in the skin by softening/dissolving the horny substance
(keratin) holding the top layer of skin cells together. This helps the dead
skin cells fall off and helps the skin keep more water in. Higher strengths of
urea are used to treat corns, callous, and some nail problems (e...
