How to Detox Properly

PlanetRx raises the bar on quality in terms of health products and healthy eating options. On its website, PlanetRx offers a number of diet and fitness aids, including cleansing and detox products.

Whether you are feeling run down, experiencing frequent skin problems, or simply want to restart your diet, a detox is a great option. Before you start, however, make sure to talk with your doctor and gather as much information as possible on safe methods for detoxing your body.

The first step in any detox plan is to eliminate the ingestion of toxins. This means refraining from coffee, alcohol, cigarettes, manufactured sugars, and solid fats. You should use house-cleaning products as little as possible, and seek out natural options in personal care products such as shampoo and toothpaste.

Reducing the amount of stress on your body is equally important, as stress is one of the leading causes of basic health issues. And since your body will be taking in fewer calories, it’s best not to engage in strenuous exercise. Yoga and meditation are simple methods for reducing stress while you detox.

Once you have begun to eliminate stress and toxins from your daily life, you are ready to start a detox program. Most detox programs last about seven days, including a two-day “juice” or fast during which you ingest only liquids, and a five-day period of eating a carefully structured diet.

Types of Knee Braces

Online retailer PlanetRx carries knee braces for people who want to support their knees, whether to prevent injuries, recover from an injury, or help with chronic pain. There are four main types of knee brace: prophylactic, functional, rehabilitative, and unloader/offloader braces. Each of the four types has a unique function.

1. Prophylactic braces are made for contact sports. They are built to withstand a rugged sport like football while preventing knee injuries.

2. Functional braces provide support for a knee that has already been injured.

3. Rehabilitative braces restrict the knee’s range of motion in order to limit harmful movement while a knee is healing after surgery or a severe injury.

4. Unloader/offloader braces are designed to relieve arthritic pain in the knees.

PlanetRx maintains a huge selection of knee braces for a wide variety of needs. Check out the selection of knee braces available from such brands as Good Neighbor, Brace Yourself, FLA Orthopedics, and Bell Horn at PlanetRx.com.

Be Prepared – Medicine Cabinet Essentials

The online drugstore PlanetRx offers more than 30,000 health care, diet, and personal health products. PlanetRx has a full selection of diabetic care products, pain relief medication, and much more. A late-night trip to the pharmacy is the last thing anyone wants to make if they are struck by sudden pain, fever, or intense indigestion. It is better to make a daytime trip to the local grocery store or pharmacy while you are healthy so that you can stock up on some of the basics that every medicine cabinet should have. Pain relievers and fever reducers are the primary items that every medicine cabinet should feature. Ibuprofen, Advil, and Motrin are all good examples of medicines that treat a wide range of stomach pains, headaches, and fevers. Similarly, if you are prone to experiencing heartburn and indigestion, make sure to have a quality antacid product on hand. Antibiotic ointment is equally important, as you never know when you will need to treat a cut or wound before bandaging it. Allergy and cold medications round out some of the basic supplies that you should have in your cabinet. There is also one less-obvious item that should be in your medicine cabinet. The ordinary person might not think of this product until it is too late. Some people are unfortunate enough to have to deal with hives on a semi-regular basis, while the lucky ones will experience hives only once or twice in a lifetime. Either way, there is no possible way to get any sleep when your body is covered in an itchy rash that can stretch from your waist to your toes. Benadryl is a great way to reduce the irritation and itching of hives until the symptoms pass, or until you can get to a doctor for a more effective prescription.
