WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DOING A JUICE CLEANSE?

It’s a sure fact that a juice cleanse makes you feel amazing. Three days, five days... and you can feel the health benefits. Increased energy, improved sleep, glowing skin, reduced cravings, the list goes on. Juice detoxes and fasts have been around for hundreds of years, and they work! So if you live in Melbourne, Geelong, Canberra or any of their other locations, Juice Culture can supply a juice cleanse to you!

The benefits:
1. Rest your digestive system
2. Boost your energy levels
3. Reduce your inflammation
4. Promotes weight-loss
5. Improve your sleep


GIVE YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM A REST

Our bodies need rest. When we get tired, we go to sleep. When we are feeling stressed, we find a place to relax. What about our digestive system? Every day we consume many meals, and our bodies are constantly needing to digest what we eat. Digestion is an active process requiring blood flow and energy to break down the food we eat. At times we may not feel quite right internally. That could be because our digestive system needs an opportunity to heal and recharge. 

Do you feel bloated? Have irritated bowels? A juice cleanse can assist in resetting our gut. Drinking cold-pressed juice, rich in fruits and vegetables, greatly reduces the amount of stress and work that our gut experiences. We also replenishing our gut by supplying it with vitamins and other critical nutrients. Resting our gut for 3 to 5 days will give it a chance to get back on top of its game.

BOOST YOUR ENERGY LEVELS

Feeling low on energy? Within just one or two days of juice cleansing, you will start to feel a difference. Day two is often known as the 'honeymoon' day, where you experience inner calm and feel the energy boost from the juices.

As you consume the cold-pressed goodness, your body is filled with nutrients and vitamins, creating lasting energy. It is very different from the rollercoasters of sugar and caffeine, and this energy is stable and enduring. The enzymes in the fruits and vegetables are unleashed from the fibre, allowing them to be rapidly absorbed into your body. After only 15 minutes of consuming a detox blend, you will feel the boost.

REDUCE THAT INFLAMMATION!

Scientific studies have emphasised that juice cleanses, along with other plant-based foods greatly reduce inflammation in the body. We live in a time when processed foods, dairy, alcohol, and meat cause significant inflammation. Detoxing gets rid of these outside toxins, cutting the supply at the source, then adds the rich nutrients of cold-pressed juice. This enters you into a zone of optimal toxin removal and body repair. Here at Juice Culture, we specialise in cleansing with Ginger, Tumeric, and Cayenne which increases the anti-inflammatory results you experience. Check out Juice Culture's High Shot rich in these ingredients.


DOES A JUICE CLEANSE HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?

While not the primary reason one would undertake a juice cleanse, weight loss is a pleasing by-product. Not only is a significant drop in weight noticed over such a short time, but juice cleansing can also kick us into healthy eating habits! After completing the cleanse, you will feel clean due to toxin removal. This will motivate you to be more focused on eating what is good for your body. During a cleanse, you remove processed food, harmful fats, and refined carbs. What are you replacing them with? The valuable nutrients in cold-pressed juice. 

It is not hard to see how you will naturally lose weight doing a juice cleanse. Of course, part of this weight loss is excess water, but if you can maintain a good diet following your cleanse, you will maintain the weight loss!

WILL A JUICE CLEANSE HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER?

Juicing naturally lowers cortisol levels which cause stress and anxiety - the things that often keep one up at night! The majority of people undertaking a juice cleanse report a significant improvement in their sleep. In addition, when you have been avoiding all of those unhealthy junky snacks, it is amazing how your body rewards your efforts. 


WHAT ABOUT HYDRATION?

Studies show that more than 50% of people are dehydrated, consuming less than the daily six glasses of water. Consuming low sugar cold-pressed juice assists the body to function more efficiently, remove toxins, and build up energy. You might be surprised to know it is vital to continue drinking water throughout the day during a juice cleanse to assist in keeping all fluids in your body moving. Taking in water will enable those nutrients and vitamins to get where they need to be in your body to transform how you look and feel.

Easy Lifestyle Changes for Amazing Skin
Your lifestyle choices can lead to hormonal imbalances. Lack of exercise and eating packaged food can cause PCOD or Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. As a result, you may experience acne and hairloss. Here are some easy lifestyle changes to restore healthy hormone levels. Get Sufficient Sleep Lack of sleep can lead to unhealthy habits. Enough sleep helps to balance ghrelin and leptin – hormones associated with appetite. Ghrelin stimulates your appetite and encourages you to eat more while leptin regulates it. Insufficient sleep increases ghrelin and lowers leptin in your bloodstream. As a result, you tend to eat more than you need. Make sure that you get adequate sleep to avoid gaining weight. Sleep also helps to rejuvenate your skin and body. Don't Stay in One Place When you remain stagnant for a long time, your body experiences hormonal imbalances. That’s why you feel pain in certain organs. To restore balance, make sure that you commit at least 30 minutes every day to exercise. It doesn’t have to be something rigorous. A walk around the neighborhood can do the trick. The goal is to be active and get your blood pumping. The breathing also helps to balance your hormones and breaking a sweat can clear your pores. Remain Calm When you try to do so many things at the same time, it becomes stressful. You can’t stop thinking about all the possibilities – mostly bad ones. Unfortunately, stress causes a lot of hormonal imbalance and hair loss comes with it. You should also avoid a lot of coffee because caffeine can also increase your stress levels. Take a deep breath and relax. Do your things in an orderly manner, and you won’t have to worry about the results. Watch What you Eat There is a direct correlation between your diet and hormones. Insulin and glucagon are hormones produced by the pancreas. Your body produces insulin after you eat. It helps to convert the food into energy. On the other hand, your body produces glucagon when it has gone without food for a while. This hormone helps to convert the stored glycogen into energy. Eating sugary foods causes an insulin imbalance. Your body won’t produce enough insulin to convert the food into energy. That’s why you feel more exhausted after eating unhealthy foods. This also triggers insulin resistance and pigmentation. You should eat foods rich in omega-3 and probiotics. Lean proteins are also good for hormonal balance. Your habits can affect the hormonal balance in your body. Practice the above healthy habits to keep your energy levels and moods up. And do consult your dermatologist if your problems persist.
Why Do I Have Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that affects the oil glands and hair follicles. The pores in your skin are linked to glands that produce an oily substance called sebum. The glands and your pores are linked by a canal called the follicle, which contains thin hair that grows to the skin's surface. When sebum and dead skin cells combine, they form a plug in the follicle. The bacteria in the plug causes inflammation, which results in red inflamed acne and furthermore, acne scars What is the underlying cause of acne? Despite the fact that the exact cause of acne has yet to be determined. However, there are some things that can cause or worsen acne, such as: 1. Hormonal changes such as puberty, menstruation, and pregnancy can all cause acne. 2. Squeezing or picking at existing pimples 3. Excessive cleaning or scrubbing of the skin 4. Weather with high humidity 5. When you use excessive amounts of cosmetics or experiment with them, as well as harmful hair products and oil-based products such as sunscreen. 6. Corticosteroids and anabolic steroids for body building. 7. Acne on the forehead is linked to dandruff in the hair. What are the signs and symptoms of acne? Everyone is unique, and so are their symptoms. As a result, different symptoms indicate different types of acne. As an example: 1. If you have blackheads, they are open, clogged pores on the surface of your skin. 2. If you have whiteheads, they are plugged pores close to the skin's surface. 3. If you have papules, these are small, tender red/pink bumps on your skin. 4. Pustules are papules with pus on top if you have them. 5. If you have nodules, which are large, painful lumps deep beneath the skin's surface, 6. If you have cysts, they can be painful, pus-filled lumps located beneath the skin's surface. Acne is one of the most common skin conditions that can affect anyone, regardless of age. It is unquestionably a difficult condition to prevent and even more difficult to treat. Certain natural remedies, such as stress control and weight loss help tremendously. If you are suffering from acne do consider discussing it with your dermatologist. Medical science has advanced a lot in treating even the most severe forms of acne such as cystic acne and hormonal acne. You no longer need to suffer alone.
What Are the Benefits of Using Lavender Oil on Your Hair?
Essential oils are becoming more popular as home remedies. Among these, lavender has become a popular essential oil. Lavender essential oils are extracted directly from the lavender plant and have a heavenly scent. The end result of using special distillation techniques is a highly concentrated extract of lavender's useful compounds, full of health benefits and more. These include benefits such as pain relief, migraine relief, air freshening, cleaning, and even hair care. According to research, it has numerous benefits for hair and healthy, beautiful locks. How does lavender oil benefits hair health? Lavender oil has a variety of beneficial properties that may help with hair health, some of which are listed below. 1. It promotes hair growth. The lavender essential oil has recently gained popularity for its ability to promote hair growth. According to a 2016 study According to a reliable source, applying lavender oil to mice caused them to grow more hair. Their hair grew thicker and faster than usual as well. This benefit is far more effective when the oil can penetrate the skin. According to these studies, lavender oil may aid in the treatment of conditions such as pattern baldness or alopecia. Human studies are needed to prove this, though people can safely try the oil in their hair. 2. It has antimicrobial properties According to this 2014 review, lavender also has antimicrobial properties. This means it aids in the prevention of the growth of bacteria and fungi. When applied to the hair or scalp, this may help to prevent common hair and scalp problems. It may help to prevent itchy scalp, dandruff, and even infections. 3. It may aid in the prevention or eradication of head lice According to a 2011 study, the lavender essential oil can help prevent head lice. It may even be effective against head lice. The lavender essential oil was tested alongside another essential oil, tea tree oil, in the study. Though more research is needed, using lavender oil may reduce the risk of getting lice. It could be even more effective if you combine it with tea tree oil. However, these oils should not be used in place of your prescribed treatment plan; you should not rely solely on oils to treat head lice. 4. It may help to reduce skin inflammation Lavender is sometimes used as a natural treatment for skin inflammation and burns. Its essential oil form may be beneficial for scalp inflammation and dryness. Lavender oil was successfully used topically on skin inflammations and ulcers in a 2012 study. It reduced inflammation and sped up the healing process. 5. It has a calming effect as well as a divine fragrance Lavender has a wonderful smell as an added bonus. Its aroma has the ability to literally calm your nervous system. In this 2012 study, human subjects reported feeling more relaxed, pleasurable, and in better moods after inhaling the fragrance. Is there anything bad about lavender oil? Make sure not to use too much oil on your scalp or on your products. Excessive use of essential oils can irritate the skin. To avoid this, always combine plain oils with a carrier oil. If you develop a rash, hives, or dermatitis despite using carrier oils, discontinue use immediately. It could be an indication that you are allergic to lavender. A lot of people are. Never consume undiluted essential oils or get them in your eyes. If you get them in your eyes, immediately flush them out with cool water. If this Blog Finds Helpful.

[Week 1] Monday & Friday - Rest Day Recipes (Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie)
You've got to love a training plan that starts off with a rest day! Since Tuesday will be my first long distance run, I want to make great post-run meals ahead of time since I'll probably be too tired once I get home. I'll be making a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie since it has complex carbs AND protein. Plus its chocolate peanut butter...hello! Here’s the protein breakdown of my new favorite smoothie: 6 oz greek yogurt → 18 grams 3/4 cup skim milk → 6 grams 1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter → 4 grams The yogurt adds a ton of protein to the shake and should be pretty easy on your stomach, which can be sensitive after a run. Here's the recipe, enjoy! Ingredients: 1 large banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 6 oz Chobani 0% Greek Yogurt (or 2%, flavored or unflavored) 3/4 cup skim milk (or your favorite kind of nondairy or dairy milk) 1 Tablespoon honey, maple syrup, or agave 1 Tablespoon peanut butter (any kind you like) Directions: Put all of the ingredients into the blender, in the order listed, and blend on high until thick and smooth. I would start with only 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder, blend, and then add 1 more for a stronger chocolate taste. You may need to stop and stir/scrape down the sides of the blender a few times. Drizzle glass with 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup (optional) and enjoy! If you prefer a less sweet smoothie, you may leave out the honey. Add more peanut butter for a stronger peanut butter taste. Add more milk to make the smoothie thinner, if desired. Add 1 cup of your favorite greens for added nutrition.

Toxins and a too-acidic body contribute to weight gain. The acidic residues infiltrate your cells – causing you to store fat. The antioxidants in citrus fruit and the metabolism booster ginger join hands and saturate the cells – flushing out all the nasty bad stuff. Plus, the fruit acids dissolve the mucus that are keeping those deadly acids hostage in your body. Many of our favourite foods in the Western diet are loaded with acidity – creating acidic garbage in the bloodstream. Such foods include dairy, meat, gluten-flour, coffee, alcohol, sugar, and even pollution. It’s not harmful if you eat acidic foods in tiny amounts, but indulging on very acid-forming foods regularly places a burdensome task on the kidneys and liver. The goal is to ALKALISE, DETOX, and REJUVENATE. This living juice will help you destroy that toxic build-up. After you develop a healthy nutritional lifestyle – loaded with living raw foods – the fat will just melt off. So, join me as we kill those intruders with the potent ingredients listed below. The main ingredient in my special elixir is – you guessed it – grapefruit! Grapefruits are the largest members of the citrus family. They originated outside of Asia and were hybridised in Jamaica (possibly a cross between a pommelo and a sweet orange). A real popular ‘weight loss’ fruit, grapefruits are ‘eliminators’ – making them the ultimate detoxifier. Your liver will love you once you start drinking these citrus delights. Juice fasting with grapefruits (or eating them) for 3-7 days will detoxify your body. It’ll clean out your colon and purify the fluids in your body. Okay… Let’s start juicing! This zingy, zesty juice will instantly wake you and your senses up – making this an excellent breakfast juice. Ingredients 5 Grapefruits 1 Lemon 2 Limes 1/4 Medium Pineapple Handful of Ginger, you be the judge on how much to use Instructions Cut the tops and bottoms of the grapefruits. Then get a sharp knife and cut around the edges to peel off the skin. Remember not to cut the white pith away – as it contains a ton of nutrients. Do the same with the limes, pineapple, and lemon. (**You don’t need to peel the limes and lemon if you own a high-quality juicer) Juice the lemon, limes, ginger, and grapefruits. Then, juice the pineapple. Pour over ice. Salud! (Cheers in Spanish for you non-Spanish speakers) What’s So Important about Vitamin C? Vitamin C is required for repairing and maintaining cells and bones – not to mention fighting off infections. It even lowers your cancer and cardiovascular disease risks. We need to continuously consume vitamin C rich foods – as our bodies don’t store vitamin C. http://bit.ly/1CJLF0i
Significant COVID-19 Impact on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry The novel coronavirus has profoundly impacted all fields, including healthcare, medical device services, automotive, pharmaceutical and many others. This pandemic has led to shutdowns of mass production and disruptions in the supply chain that have impacted the economies of virtually every nation in the world. The pandemic also affected the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic industry. The patient's fear of contracting the virus compels patients to stay home instead of undergoing diagnosis and treatment. During the COVID-19 pandemic, countries worldwide witnessed a large number of patients suffering from COVID-19 and post COVID-19 complications such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and kidney problems. As the COVID-19 cases were rising, the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby delaying diagnosis and treatment of other chronic conditions as cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario As a result, the hospitals and clinics were filled up with COVID-19 patients and less preference was given to non-small cell lung cancer patients. Moreover, limited access to clinics, social distancing, the lockdown of the population, which results in a slow-down in patient flow and referrals, has also impacted the market growth. However, with the cases decreasing in number and increase in vaccination against COVID-19 across the globe, the market for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market may get a boost due to some relaxation in COVID-19 cases, which will result in increased demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnosis with patients coming forward to clinics and hospitals for treatment. IMPACT ON DEMAND Various screening, diagnostic and surgical procedures were restricted and at hospitals and cancer treatment centers, which resulted in disruptions in the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. However, even during the pandemic, the lung cancer cases were subsequent, which is expected to increase the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. For instance, · According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, lung cancer accounted for 2,206 771 deaths among both sexes. The lung cancer statistics include both small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. About 13% of all lung cancers are small cell lung cancer and 84% are non-small cell lung cancer. This proves an increase in the number of non-small cell lung cancer patients even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, according to the American Cancer Society, Inc., lung cancer patients are likely to get infected with coronavirus because of the changes in their immune system that control their body's defense systems. For instance, · According to a study published in PubMed, patients with lung cancer are at an increased risk of becoming infected with the virus and experience higher morbidity and mortality than the general population Thus, having cancer such as non-small cell lung cancer may also increase the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as the cancer therapy treatment reduce the immune system of the body. . This has increased the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic tools, especially in cancer-dedicated hospitals and surgical centres, where all the patients of non-small cell lung cancer-related problems are treated. Thus, with the increased lung cancer cases, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic will increase in the coming years. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The supply chain was widely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as acute restrictions and lockdowns produced many urgent situations in the early days of the pandemic, which needed immediate attention. The supply chain disruption has transformed many organizations' business environments, including the supply chain of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. The supply chain disruption impacted the Asia-Pacific region initially, especially the demand from China due to challenges from restricted movement and quarantine period. For instance, · According to the FDA, 63 manufacturers representing 72 facilities in China that produce essential medical devices face obstacles in manufacturing medical devices and their supply, owing to citing workforce challenges and the necessary quarantine of workers. Moreover, closing borders of various countries is anticipated to diminish the supply chain business environment, as it may hamper export of the medical supplies To minimize supply chain crises, the FDA has been firmly monitoring the supply chain with the assumption that the COVID-19 outbreak may adversely impact the supply chain of medical products, including shortages of critical medical products in the U.S. or potential disruptions in supply chains. Many organizations and countries are looking forward to improving and diversified supply chain models in all aspects to manage such a crucial situation. A diversified supply chain model anticipated minimizing the export of medical products as well as increase end-to-end visibility. For instance, · The Brazilian government published a resolution eliminating import taxes on 141 medical products and hospital equipment · The European Commission made a decision for helping Member States affected by the pandemic to suspend customs duties and VAT on medical devices temporarily · Federal indirect tax body the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council of India has decided to cut taxes on medical supplies IMPACT ON PRICE The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic does not significantly impact the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. But it is estimated that if COVID-19 continues to spread for a prolonged period, then the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment and devices will highly upsurge for top importer countries. For therapies and the diagnostic United States solicit the huge number of medical devices, followed by China and Japan. For instance, · According to the General Administration of Customs (GAC), China's exports of medical machinery and devices increased 40.5 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year, reaching USD 18.138 billion · According to the World Trade Organisation, the U.S. imports and exports of medical goods increased by 16 %, reaching USD 1,139.00 billion in value Henceforth for diagnosis, dependency of these countries highly increases on other exporters and many countries solely depend on China and the U.S. for the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment. Consequently, this may lead to a rise in the overall non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic cost. This increase in the price of the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic may hamper the market growth if it continues to be the same. Additionally, if the lockdown continues to stretch for a long period, then import of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market is estimated to get more restricted, which may further lead to a rise in the price of the these devices CONCLUSION It is estimated that the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has significantly impacted the growth of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market as the rising cases of COVID-19 worldwide the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby resulting in the delay of diagnosis and treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario. However, with the increase in lung cancer patients worldwide, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics will increase in the coming years. Moreover, poor lifestyle, smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity and other factors will contribute to the incidence of chronic disease such as lung cancer, including non-small cell lung, which is anticipated to increase the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market in the coming years.
What Causes Strawberry Legs And How To Get Rid Of It?
Summer is arrived, which means you're most likely showing a little more skin. As our gams finally receive their due, pants become shorts, maxi dresses become minis, and skirts become minis. Short hemlines, on the other hand, may be undesirable to those whose legs are spotted, bumpy, or spotty. Let's learn more about how a dermatologist treats and prevents skin diseases known as "strawberry legs." What Are 'Strawberry Legs,' Exactly? Strawberry legs refers to a dotty appearance of the legs, mainly around the hair follicles. The dots depict the buildup of common skin elements in and around the hair and oil glands. Keratin is a type of protein that is found in (the main protein in the skin) * Melanin is a pigment found in the skin (the source of pigment) * Sebum is a type of oil that is produced by (natural oil of the skin) * Bacteria are microorganisms (often, normal skin flora) The name "strawberry legs" refers to the dark pores and dots or red pimples that emerge on the lower thighs and resemble strawberry seeds. Strawberry legs are not hazardous in terms of health, but they are ugly. Strawberry Legs: What Causes Them and How to Treat Them While the appearance of strawberry legs is typically the same no matter what caused it, there are a number of causes. Knowing what's causing your dotted gams can allow you to address the appropriate ailment. The four most prevalent causes of strawberry legs, as well as how to cure them, are listed below. 1. Clogged Pores Clogged pores on your legs are just as common as clogged pores on your face. Because of heredity and thicker body hair, some people have larger pores, and while the pores themselves aren't inherently irritating, they can become problematic when they become blocked with germs, dead skin, and sebum. When clogged pores on the legs are exposed to air, the debris dries up and darkens, in the same way that a blackhead on the face does. Treat with: Chemical and physical exfoliation. Exfoliation, which is part of your facial skincare routine, can be used to cure congested pores on the legs or anyplace else on the body. My personal favourite for my patients is chemical exfoliation, which uses chemicals such as acids and retinols to stimulate skin cell turnover and clear pores. This eliminates keratin, oils, and other skin detritus gently, opening up pores and follicles and preventing secondary bacterial buildup. Acne and folliculitis bacteria grow in oil-clogged hair follicles, so eliminating that build-up is critical. Look for a body wash or moisturiser that contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), notably glycolic acid and salicylic acid, to exfoliate dead skin cells and other debris that create clogged pores. These acids gently exfoliate the skin by minimising the'stickiness' of dead or dying skin cells. This helps to open up the pores while also giving the skin a great textural shift and radiance. 2. Folliculitis Folliculitis is a skin disorder that causes inflamed or infected hair follicles. The most common sign is little red pimples around the hair follicles. Hair loss or scarring in the affected area may occur in extreme situations. The majority of instances, however, are small and normally resolve within a few days. It's crucial to note that folliculitis is a catch-all term for inflammation of the hair follicle. This can be contagious due to microorganisms like staphylococcus or sterile due to oil buildup or shaving stress. Treat with: Antibiotics, both oral and topical. Folliculitis is a "tricky condition" to treat, which is why you should consult a dermatologist before trying any at-home therapies. Folliculitis can be sterile, with red, pus-filled pimples forming as a result of causes like clogged pores and shaving. They can, however, indicate a superficial skin infection caused by bacteria or yeast such as staph and pityrosporum. While the former can be treated with over-the-counter medications, the latter may require prescriptions for antibiotic creams or even pills to resolve. A simple swab can be used by a dermatologist to assess whether or not organisms should be targeted. If there are, it might save you a lot of time and effort in developing successful at-home habits. Treat with: Antibacterial skincare. At-home treatments range from lifestyle changes to skincare. To begin, change out of your sweaty training clothes and shower as quickly as possible. In the shower, lather up with antibacterial soap. Treat with: Laser hair removal treatment. You should also reconsider your shaving routine. Use a soothing shave cream in addition to converting from a multi-bladed razor to a disposable razor. In return for less rough skin, the closest shave is compromised. The risk of folliculitis is inversely associated to a close shave. He also suggests shaving with the grain rather than against it every two to three shaves. If you're prone to razor bumps, laser hair removal with a dermatologist will save you a lot of time and aggravation in the long run. 3. Keratosis Pilaris Keratosis pilaris (KP), popularly known as "chicken skin," is a skin disorder characterised by the appearance of small bumps on the skin. Keratosis pilaris most usually affects the upper outer arms, however it can also affect the thighs. Keratin accumulation in the hair follicles causes this. Treat with: Chemical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliants, like clogged pores, are frequently efficient in the treatment of keratosis pilaris, but prescription-strength treatments may also be beneficial. Exfoliative acids are my first line of defence against keratosis pilaris. If those don't work, a prescription-grade retinoid may be an option, but only after consulting with a dermatologist. While keratosis pilaris is usually a year-round condition, flare-ups are more likely in the winter when the skin is drier. Additionally, swimmers may aggravate the illness due to the dehydrating effects of chlorine and other pool chemicals. 4. Dry Skin Dry skin, as previously indicated, contributes to a number of skin diseases, including strawberry legs. Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to irritation, especially during shaving. Dry skin on the lower legs is more prone to razor burn, keratosis pilaris, folliculitis, and plugged pores, all of which can result in a spotty appearance. Treat with: Creams and moisturisers. For severely dry skin, a daily moisturising body lotion containing ammonium lactate is an excellent place to start, especially if it is scaly. Ichthyosis, or dry, scaly, or thickened skin, may not usually respond to regular creams and moisturisers, thus a dual-purpose formulation may be necessary. Because there is a thicker layer of dead skin on the surface, moisturising alone isn't always adequate. Exfoliating lotions gradually remove that layer, allowing richer moisturisers to penetrate deeper into the healthier layers beneath. In conclusion Strawberry legs are a catch-all name for a range of skin disorders, but there are a few things you can do at home and at the workplace to cure and prevent a bumpy or spotty appearance. Consult a board-certified dermatologist before attempting to treat yourself to ensure you understand the underlying cause of your illness.
Significant COVID-19 Impact on Nivolumab in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Nivolumab in Healthcare Industry COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has affected the day-to-day life of people and has slowed down the economies worldwide. The pandemic has affected millions of people who either got sick or died due to the spread of this disease. Within a few months, coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which originated from China, became a pandemic, with more than 30 million people being infected till date. There are now numerous vaccines in use. The first mass vaccination program commenced in early December 2020, and as of 15 February 2021, 175.3 million vaccine doses have been administered. There is an added complexity because of COVID-19 diagnosis in cancer patients, particularly while on active treatment with immunotherapy like nivolumab. COVID-19 could cause more harm to cancer patients. In order to prevent the infection from spreading, the patient’s number and new diagnosis have been less during the COVID 19. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a dramatic loss of human life worldwide and presents an unprecedented challenge to public health, food systems, and the world of work. Still, there is an increase in the demand for cancer treatment with immunotherapy drugs like nivolumab during the second quarter of 2020 with the rise in awareness regarding health and new product launches in countries. IMPACT ON PRICE COVID-19 is significantly decreasing commercial activity in every area of the business sector. The economy has been decreased during the pandemic with the restricted and disrupted supply and sales of products and devices. The cost of medication and treatment of nivolumab has been increased due to the increasing demand for this drug during COVID-19. This contributed to the increased expenses and prices of immunotherapy drugs. Changes in the economy and other factors have caused consequences, including the decrease in the sales of the drug in some countries such as the U.S. With the rise of COVID-19 and decrease in new patients has also contributed to the increased cost and priced of some products and medication. · The price of Opdivo (nivolumab) drug which is a most common therapy treatment for various type of cancer or tumor have been increased to USD 1,172 for a supply of 4 milliliters of injection in 2020 with the rise in demand and increasing patients population in the second quarter of 2020. IMPACT ON DEMAND Global economic development in 2020 has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 has given rise to risks such as a prolonged, significant decline in global demand as well as unfavorable geopolitical and macroeconomic effects. The coronavirus pandemic has provoked many strategical actions among healthcare providers on how to manage cancer patients when faced with the threat of severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. There has been a decrease in demand for nivolumab in some countries like the U.S., whereas many countries have seen an increase in sales with the rise in demand for the treatment and new cancer patients. With the rise in demand for the drug, FDA has provided approval to various drugs related to the immunotherapy nivolumab. For instance- · For the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, the U.S. revenues of nivolumab decreased to 9% in 2020 due to lower demand caused by declining second-line eligibility across tumor indications and lower demand from COVID-19 (primarily lower new patient starts and patient visits). The U.S. has seen a decrease in sales in the first quarter of 2020. · However, the international revenues for nivolumab were increased up to 7% in 2020 due to higher demand as a result of additional indication launches in some countries with rising cancer patients globally. · In May 2021 -- Bristol-Myers Squibb Company has today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had approved their Opdivo (nivolumab, injection for intravenous use) for the adjuvant treatment of completely resected esophageal or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer. · Similarly, FDA has approved Opdivo (nivolumab) for treating different types of cancer in many countries via various market players due to the rise in demand for this drug. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The pandemic and COVID-19 have affected every business activity in which the supply chain was affected the most. Because of the pertinacious COVID-19 lockdown, sanctions have been forced by administrations of different nations. These limitations and boundaries across the nation’s borders prompted a diminishing stockpile because of restricted materials and labor force and the halting of the assembly line. The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed many organizations’ business environments; supply availability has been hampered by a number of issues, including export and travel restrictions by some producing countries, and the lockdown has forced suppliers to (temporarily) shut down. The supply of nivolumab medication has a slight decrease in sales during the first quarter of 2020, partly due to negative factors mentioned above in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, which particularly didn’t affect the overall yearly revenue. The supply chain and demand were positively affected by the COVID 19. The sales and supply of the drugs have been increased with the rise in demand for the drugs and diagnosis. Many major manufacturing companies have launched their drugs in different countries to fulfill the demand, and the government has provided approval for the sales of the drug nivolumab. For instance- Despite the pandemic, many market player of nivolumab has increased their sales globally. This is due to the ongoing increase in the patient population and rising awareness regarding their health. · The sales of ONO pharmaceuticals have been increased in the year 2020 as compared to 2019, which is 2656.05 USD Million in 2019 and 2809.23 USD million. · Similarly, sales of the drug Opdivo (Nivolumab) from the manufacturing company Bristol Myers Squibb Company have been increased globally (except the U.S.) from USD 2,860 million in 2019 to USD 3,047 million in 2020. This increase in sales in both of the major market players is due to the increase in cancer patients and the use of drugs in all areas of cancer. There is an increase in the sales of this nivolumab with the rise in prevalence of disease and early diagnosis & treatment. STRATEGIC DECISIONS BY MANUFACTURERS To deal with the COVID-19 outbreak challenges and increasing demand for the drugs, many market players are creating new strategies such as new product development, telemedicine, and a different program to support patients and to raise their sales. It is predicted that these strategies are anticipated to escalate up the company revenue and its growth in the forecasted period. The government has provided drug FDA approvals of nivolumab for the treatment of cancer. For instance, · In May 2020, Bristol Myers Company announced that Opdivo (nivolumab) 3 mg/kg plus Yervoy (ipilimumab) 1 mg/kg (injections for intravenous use) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the first-line treatment of adult patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). · There are several ongoing potentially registrational studies that have been conducted by different manufacturing companies for Opdivo for the treatment of different tumor types and disease areas, in combination with various anti-cancer agents · Also, there are various ongoing clinical trials conducting on nivolumab with the combination of various anti-cancer agents and others to treat various types of cancer to decrease the demand for cancer treatment and to provide patients with more advanced drugs. For instance · In Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, ONO pharmaceuticals are co-developing this drug nivolumab with the Bristol Myers Company CONCLUSION As the pandemic of COVID-19 resulted in several restrictions throughout the borders, still, manufacturers and market players were able to manage their sales and revenue of oncology and drug nivolumab. Various manufacturers allowed their workers to work in a clean and safe environment so as to boost up the production at various manufacturing facilities across several regions of the world, thus, helping them to maintain a continuous supply chain with the increasing demand. Market players have come up with better strategies which have also created a positive impact on the growth of the nivolumab market globally.
