HIV STIGMA: NOT RETRO, JUST WRONG
Being diagnosed with HIV today means something very different than it did 20 or 30 years ago. HIV is no longer a death sentence. However, people’s attitudes can make living with HIV really hard. Some things from the 1980s and 1990s are worth revisiting, but HIV stigma isn’t one of them. It’s time to end HIV stigma.
The problems that the 'rest of the population' creates for me makes living with HIV difficult to the point where taking my medication, remaining unemployed and choosing friends carefully appears to be the only comfortable option.- Gary
This World AIDS Day, help us put HIV stigma firmly in the past where it belongs, by joining our Not Retro, Just Wrong campaign.
CHALLENGE HIV STIGMA ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Take a stand against HIV stigma on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram this World AIDS Day.
Share a funny or embarrassing picture of you (or your parents!) from the 80s or 90s, to show that although some retro styles have come back in to fashion some things should be left in the past, including HIV stigma. Or share one of our campaign posters, below. Remember to hashtag #HIVNotRetro

Symptoms of Kidney Problems
1. Changes in your Urine
This is one of the first signs your kidneys are in trouble. So If you notice any of the following changes, speak to your doctor:
- Pressure during urinating
- Trouble urinating
- Foam in your urine
- Dark urine followed by less frequent urinating and/or urinating in small amounts
- Pale urine and more frequent urination in larger amounts
- Need to urinate many times during the night (although this can be a sign of other issues as well)
2. Excessive Swelling
Because your kidneys are responsible for filtering any fluid in your body, if this fluid starts to back up, you will notice swelling, typically in your hands and feet as these small organs struggle to eliminate any excess fluid. As well, protein in your urine is a clear sign your kidneys are in trouble and the tiny filters are not working properly.
When this happens, the filters allow protein to seep through into your urine. People with kidney issues will often notice they have a telltale puffiness around their eyes, which is caused by large amounts of protein in their urine. You may also notice swelling in your joints.
3. Shortness of Breath
While you may not automatically see shortness of breath as a symptom of kidney problems, this is actually a very common sign. When your kidneys are taxed, fluid can build-up in the lungs, making it harder to take a deep breath.
Less oxygen in your blood makes it harder for your body to function, causing you to become out of breath quicker.
4. Skin Rashes
Any time your body is overwhelmed with toxins, it looks for any way to get rid of these poisons and waste products. One such way is through the pores in your skin. This can result in rashes, dry, irritated skin or even open sores.
While skin creams and ointments can help ease the symptoms, they do not help with your kidneys, so it is important to address the underlying issue.
5. Metallic Taste in the Mouth
Sometimes, your body can become so overloaded with toxins that you can literally taste them. People with kidneys that are not working at optimal capacity, can often experience a metallic taste in their mouths.
Any unfiltered waste buildup can linger in your blood where it can alter the taste of food. This buildup of toxins can further lead to halitosis (bad breath) and a lack of appetite.
6. Poor Concentration and Dizziness
As your kidneys become overwhelmed with toxins, they begin to fail, which can lead to inefficient oxygen flow to the rest of your body, including your brain.
This leads to such things as poor memory, concentration, and dizziness, and even light-headedness— brain fog.
7. Pain in Your Lower Back
Lower back pain is often associated with kidney damage, failure or infections since these organs sit in your lower back area. This pain can be a result of kidney stones or even a urinary tract infection.
You may also experience pain in your legs or sides.
In healthy people, your kidneys produce a hormone known as EPO (erythropoietin), which essentially increases the number of red blood cells in your blood. These red blood cells carry valuable oxygen to every part of your body. A general lack of oxygen, not surprisingly, can lead to fatigue, including your muscles and every other working part of your body.
Chronic fatigue may also be a symptom of anemia, so it is imperative you speak with your health professional if you have long-term, unexplainable exhaustion.
9. Nausea and Vomiting
As toxins and wastes begin to buildup in your blood, it can cause severe nausea and vomiting. This can also be a sign of a urinary tract infection, so make sure you speak to your doctor right away, especially if you are experiencing any pain in your lower back or abdomen too (5).
When you kidneys are functioning properly, they produce erythropoietin, a hormone that triggers your body to make red blood cells. As such, any issues that affect the healthy function of your kidneys can ultimately interfere with this process resulting in a lack of oxygen-carrying red blood cells.
When this happens, you can often develop anemia, a symptom of which includes constantly feeling cold

1. Exercise! Exercising stimulates blood circulation and prevents the blood from pooling in your lower extremities. If you’re suffering from painful or inflamed legs, swimming can be the perfect solution. When you float, the impact is taken off your feet, which eases the discomfort. So find a pool, or take a dip in a nearby sea or lake. If you do yoga, go for the postures that make you lift your feet above the head. This is called an inversion and has many health benefits, including improved immunity and digestion. So start with your headstand as soon as you notice your feet swelling… and experience the thrill of it. Incorporating physical activities into your daily life is also one of the 70 habits featured in my e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health which will guide you how to take positive steps to improve your wellness and overall health.
2. Elevate your legs. If you’re not quite ready for the headstand yet, try elevating your legs by putting them on a higher surface so that they are above the heart. Do that for 30 minutes, three times a day, and observe the difference. When you’re in bed, put a pillow under your ankles. This will help drain the excess fluid, so it can then get absorbed in the body, or is eliminated with urine.
3. If you sit for long periods of time, get up and walk around a bit. When your boss asks you what you are up to, explain that you are just trying to prevent your feet from swelling. Walking for 10 minutes, three times a day, should be enough to keep your tootsies healthy and happy.
4. When you travel, consider wearing compression socks. I know that they can be difficult to put on, but they do serve their purpose. They help the blood vessels with their elasticity, so that the blood doesn’t pool in your legs. Plus, they prevent varicose veins. Consider wearing them on long-haul flights and on long bus and train journeys. My traveling friend would certainly benefit from wearing them. Also, support/compression socks or stockings can be good for you if you’re already suffering from leg inflammation.
5. Eat healthy and avoid excess salt. A bit of salt is good for you, and is in fact needed for the body to function well. But too much salt can cause water retention and should be avoided. Caffeine too is a known culprit. So go easy on the salt and try to bring your coffee intake to a minimum. If you are overweight, consider losing some weight, so you reduce the pressure that is put on your muscles, joints and bones. Every little helps. To get some ideas that can help you reduce your weight, you can have a look at my previous articles 12 simple tweaks for weight loss and great health and 9 secrets of losing weight without diet.
6. Stop smoking! Smoking is one of the top 10 habits to stop right now if you want to be healthy. I know, easier said than done. But think of all the rewards that come when you stop smoking. Having your feet less swollen is just one of them. Also, smoking is related to many (more serious) underlying conditions that can cause lower limb swelling.
7. Drink plenty of water. We are all guilty of often not drinking enough fluids. By drinking water throughout the day, we hydrate our tissues and detox the body. Sodium and caffeine, which contribute to feet inflammation, get diluted if we water ourselves sufficiently. Eight to ten glasses a day should be the norm. Drink more if you had some alcohol. So make sure you carry that water bottle with you. For added antioxidant value, squeeze some lime or lemon in or prepare your own flavored water.
8. Massage the painful area. Or even better, make someone else do it for you. Massaging your feet is extremely relaxing and improves your blood circulation. Use gentle but firm motions, and always go in the direction of the heart.
9. Soak your feet in Epsom salt and feel the bliss. I’ve already written about the great uses for Epsom salt, and I’m sure your legs and feet will appreciate the attention. If you feel like indulging yourself completely, add a few cups of sea salt to your bathwater and soak your whole body. Essential oils can help alleviate pain and discomfort too. Some popular choices are peppermint, eucalyptus, lemon and lavender that are all known to have anti-inflammatory properties. If you are interested to learn more about essential oils you can find useful information in my e-book Magical Aromatherapy. This e-book will help you to discover the power of essential oils and the most effective ways to use them.
10. Take magnesium supplements. Often feet inflammation, which can result in painful swelling, is connected to magnesium deficiency. A dose of 350 mg a day can make a difference, but always talk to your doctor before taking any supplement.

Why was August 15 chosen as Independence Day?
India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru addressing the nation from the ramparts of Red Fort.In 1929, when Jawaharlal Nehru as Congress President gave the call for ‘Poorna Swaraj’ or total independence from British colonial rule, January 26 was chosen as the Independence Day. In fact, Congress party continued to celebrate it 1930 on wards, till India attained independence and January 26, 1950 was chosen as the Republic Day – the day India formally became a sovereign country and was no longer a British Dominion.
So how did August 15 become India’s independence day? Well, Lord Mountbatten had been given a mandate by the British parliament to transfer the power by June 30, 1948. If he had waited till June 1948, in C Rajagopalachari’s memorable words, there would have been no power left to transfer. Mountbatten thus advanced the date to August 1947.
At that time, Mountbatten claimed that by advancing the date, he was ensuring that there will be no bloodshed or riot. He was, of course, to be proven wrong, although he later tried to justify is by saying that “wherever colonial rule has ended, there has been bloodshed. That is the price you pay.”
Based on Mountbatten’s inputs the Indian Independence Bill was introduced in the British House of Commons on July 4, 1947 and passed within a fortnight. It provided for the end of the British rule in India, on August 15, 1947, and the establishment of the Dominions of India and Pakistan, which were allowed to secede from the British Commonwealth.
The 1947 photograph provided by the Ministry of Defence shows Lord Mountbatten, Edwina Mountbatten and Jawaharlal Nehru at the first Independence Day celebrations in New Delhi.Mountbatten later claimed, as quoted in Freedom at Midnight, that “The date I chose came out of the blue. I chose it in reply to a question. I was determined to show I was master of the whole event. When they asked had we set a date, I knew it had to be soon. I hadn’t worked it out exactly then — I thought it had to be about August or September and I then went out to the 15th August. Why? Because it was the second anniversary of Japan’s surrender.”
On August 15, 1945, Japanese Emperor Hirohito gave a recorded radio address, which later came to be known as the Jewel Voice Broadcast. In the radio address, he announced the surrender of Japan to the Allies. Mountbatten remembered hearing the news of Japanese surrender that day sitting in Churchill’s room, and as the Supreme Allied Commander of South East Asia Command signed the formal Japanese surrender of Singapore on September 4, 1945.
But how did Pakistan get independence on August 14? Actually it didn’t. The Indian Independence Bill gave August 15 as the date of independence for both the countries. The first stamp issued by Pakistan mentioned August 15 as its independence day. In his first address to Pakistan, Jinnah actually said, “August 15 is the birthday of the independent and sovereign state of Pakistan. It marks the fulfillment of the destiny of the Muslim nation which made great sacrifices in the past few years to have its homeland.”In 1948, Pakistan started marking August 14 as its independence day, either because the ceremony for transfer of power in Karachi was held on August 14, 1947 or because August 14, 1947 was the 27th of Ramadan, a very sacred date to the Muslims.Whatever be the case, 69 years on, India and Pakistan celebrate their hard fought independence with patriotic fervour. The dates, in any case, hold far less significance than the mission to deliver the fruits of independence to the vast multitude of people in the two countries

What Happens When You Drink Water with Baking Soda on an Empty Stomach
This remedy should not be underestimated because it has some undeniable benefits for the body. Just a glass of water with baking soda on an empty stomach can help you get rid of some serious diseases.
Find out what are the effects of water consumption on an empty stomach with bicarbonate, to convince yourself, enter into this liquid diet for a miraculous effect!
Water with Baking Soda: Pure Health
Baking soda is not only useful when you make cookies, but it is a guaranteed cure for many unpleasant ailments. In addition, it helps to regulate the pH in the body, given that, we already know that a large proportion of serious diseases are caused by an imbalance in it.
Here are Most Important Benefits of Drinking Water with Baking Soda!
1. Antacid Effect:
Baking soda has been recognized as a remedy for gastric hyper acidity, a symptom faced by most of people. Gastric reflux occurs when stomach acid in the esophagus sometimes reaches even higher in the throat, causing a burning sensation specific. Drinking water daily with sodium bicarbonate, hydrochloric acid neutralizes stomach and fixes the issue. Also, these effervescent beverages belching induce healing (removing gas from the stomach through the mouth), which prevents bloating and heartburn.
2. Alkalize Body:
An acidic pH of the body results in the occurrence of several serious diseases, including cancer. Water has the property sodium bicarbonate to balance the pH of the body. Acidity is necessary for effective digestion of food, but it is generally considered that a high alkalinity is healthier, because the diseases thrive in an acid environment. Many chronic degenerative diseases, such as osteoporosis, arthritis and cancer have been associated with an increased acidity of the body. In these conditions, even it does not seem much to drink one glass of water with baking soda on an empty stomach, since you can have great benefit.
3. Prevent Kidney Stones:
Kidney Stones not only occurs from a genetic disorder, but also due to an iron imbalance in the body which can be identified through strongly acidic urine. Nephrolithiasis is a disease that shows no sign of pain or suffering for a long time, but when it does, the pain is very severe. You might have kidney stones and not know until you remove them. This disease affects a large part of the population; one of the main reasons is that people do not hydrate properly. Drink a glass of water with baking Soda every day and you will greatly reduce the risk of kidney stones.
4. Preventing Urinary Infections:
It goes without saying that when you protect your kidneys, bladder, it in turn protects you. Soda is recognized as a remedy for urinary tract infections and their prevention method, because of its antiseptic properties, as acidity reduces urine. Bacteria can grow easily in the bladder, and women are the main victims of UTIs. A poor hygiene, pregnancy, low immunity and certain drug treatments can lead to the development of this disease which cannot be easily escaped. Therefore, it is best to prevent this problem through adequate fluid consumption and by “cleaning” bladder using sodium bicarbonate.
How to Drink Water with Baking soda in Right Way:
To do everything “by the book”, you should first know how to measure pH paper to test its value in urine and saliva. As you wake up, your saliva pH should be between 7.0 and 7.4 before you drink. Urine will be more acidic in the morning because the body had worked all night to clean the body. In the first hour, the urine pH should have values between 6.0 and 7.0 and is expected to increase throughout the day. Measure pH value for few days, note the results and if you notice that the values are far lower than desirable, you can use baking soda with water to make it balanced.
It is enough to drink a glass of water in which you have added a teaspoon of baking soda twice a day, preferably on an empty stomach. You need the right acids for a proper digestion. Continue to monitor your pH and can also increase the dose to (an extra glass or two) until you notice an improvement.
Drink water with baking soda on empty stomach for excellent health benefits, which has no unpleasant side effect, so it’s worth trying this treatment inexpensive and effective.

8 Signs You Might Have Serious Metabolism Issues
1. Cold Hands & Feet (and overall low body temperature)
Do you always have cold hands and feet whether it’s winter or summer? When overall body temperature is cold it’s a sign that your metabolism might be in danger.
2. Frequent Urination
Despite what some people may think or teach, clear urine and the need to pee frequently are red flags for metabolism issues.
3. Frequent Headaches
Do you find yourself getting headaches often? Do you struggle with brain fog? Time to check up on your metabolic health.
4. Poor Digestion and Food Intolerances
Because metabolic health is critical to digestion and food assimilation, poor digestion and food intolerance issues are both signs of poor metabolic health.
5. Sleep Problems and Insomnia
This was the issue that finally got me take my metabolic health seriously. Whether it’s problems going to sleep or waking up wired in the middle of the night, sleep disturbances are often a thing of the past once your metabolism has been healed.
6. Mood Swings
Dramatic shifts in mood and overall instability are another sign of poor metabolic health.
7. Blood Sugar Crashes & Instability
My blood sugar issues were pretty bad several years ago, but I didn’t catch on that it was connected to my metabolism issues until after I recovered. Now I feel much more stable, don’t deal with nasty sugar cravings, and don’t turn into the incredible hulk if I am an hour late to dinner. (Although, I’m rarely late for any meal! Ha!)
8. Weight Gain
Weight gain (and in some cases, the inability to gain weight) are other signs of poor metabolic health. Excess weight in the midsection is particularly a sign your metabolism could use some nourishing.
