How IT Professionals with Hair Loss suffer from Hypertension

How IT Professionals with Hair Loss suffer from Hypertension

Hair loss is a growing concern among men and women today and people living in the IT hub –Pune are also not spared from the worry. There are several reasons that can cause hair loss. Sometimes hair loss can be a temporary response to an operation that you have undergone or due to high fever causing the hair to fall out. In such cases, you may not worry as the hair may grow back after some time. 

Hair loss can also be an inherited trait, in which case you may have to take precautions and delay the loss. Another major reason of hair loss may be nutritional or medical imbalance. In such cases, it is advisable that you seek medical help at the earliest.




Pune is a metropolitan city and houses several IT giants. Young IT professionals work for long hours, giving them little or no time to take care of their hair, skin and general health. This causes a lot of stress which in turn can cause hair loss. 

It can be embarrassing for young people to lose hair and go bald. To tackle this issue, several people are resorting to hair transplant in Pune. Unlike the traditional hair transplant methods, today’s methods are safe, hygienic, reasonably priced and result oriented. Therefore, hair transplant in Pune has become highly popular among the youth.

Hypertension And Hair Loss


In addition to hereditary and nutritional deficiency related to hair loss, medication induced hair loss can be a big blow to an individual’s self esteem. The severity of the hair loss varies from one person to another and in most of the cases the hair loss is reversible once the medications are stopped.

The hair cycle comprises of a growing phase (anagen), a transitional phase (catagen) followed by a resting phase (telogen) and shedding phase (exogen). The hair grows and falls randomly which is why daily hair loss goes unnoticed. However, when the hair enters the telogen phase earlier than normal, excess hair thinning and shedding can occur.

When a person uses anti- hypertensive medications, it interferes with the normal hair cycle and makes the hair enter the resting phase early. This causes the hair to fall out, resulting in hair loss. The hair loss becomes noticeable after about 3-4 months of taking the medications.  Consult a physician to get respite from the situation. He may change the drug or stop it completely keeping in mind the seriousness of the blood pressure. 

Another method of covering hair thinning is with the help of hair transplant in Pune. It is a surgical method of transplanting hair from a donor area to the balding area. It is one the most successful method of restoring hair.  However, it is recommended that you select a reputed hair clinic in Pune and avoid falling prey to inexperienced and cheap hair transplant treatments.

Whether it is inherited, medication induced or stress related hair loss, a trichologist will be able to calculate your hair loss accurately and diagnose the root cause of the problem.

7 Go-To Ways to Keep Bored Seniors Active

7 Go-To Ways to Keep Bored Seniors Active

Looking for fun and creative ways to embolden your elderly parent or grandparent in their ‘Golden Years’?



Check out these 7 go-to tips for helping seniors stay active, healthy and social.

1. Make a date: Set up a recurring outing with your favorite senior that they can look forward to each week. It can simply be getting lunch together every week, or planning a surprise activity like a trip to the botanical gardens, seeing a movie, or visiting the local farmer’s market. Keeping a scheduled weekly date with your elderly loved one ensures they stay active and get out of the house regularly.

2. Find volunteer opportunities: Help your bored senior find local volunteer opportunities that keep them interested, mobile, and let them give back to their community. Websites like VolunteerMatch and Create the Good have interactive online tools that give anybody the ability to find volunteer opportunities based on their location, interests, age, and more. If Grandma is a green thumb, help her find opportunities to pitch in at the community garden or beautifying the local elementary school. If your aging dad loves shows and performances, help him get connected with the volunteer program at the local fine arts theatre.

3. Start a bucket list: Inspire your older friend or relative to think out of the box and come up with a list of things they would like to accomplish in their retirement. Anything and everything counts, like learning photography, taking a ballroom dancing class, learning an instrument, or starting a blog. Turning your bored senior into an active, life-lover all starts with a simple question, “what would they love to do in the next few years?”. Creating a real-life bucket list will help build confidence, strengthen mental clarity, and energize them to try new things!

4. Look in the community: If your elderly loved one lives in an assisted living center, nursing home, or retirement community, chances are daily activities and weekly outings are regularly scheduled and announced. If they still live on their own, however, assisting them in finding community activities and events could be life changing.

Great places to look include:

a. Senior centers and YMCA’s (they often offer wellness classes like yoga and Tai Chi)
b. Chamber of Commerce (for community fundraisers and festivals)
c.   Meetup groups (for shared interests like gardening, books, art, etc)
d. Weekly newspapers/magazines (they often keep a calendar of community events)
e. Local AARP chapters (they host Block Parties and volunteer events)
5. Organize help: One regular challenge senior citizens face in their later years is the inability to get around easily, especially when they can no longer drive. Staying inside, weary of asking for help, can lead many seniors to spend their days on the couch in front of the television. Organize ‘volunteers’ - whether it’s family members, people from your faith community, or neighbors - and coordinate a “helping calendar” where friends can sign up to help transport your loved one.

Websites like SignUp.com, CaringBridge, and SignupGenius make it easy to organize free, online signups and calendars where your support system can sign up to pitch in from their computer or smartphone, and receive automated reminders. Transportation to simply get out to the grocery store, pharmacy, even to get a cup of coffee, can help your favorite senior stay active, get exercise and feel independent.

6. Get them online: Launching an online presence is super easy (and free!) for your bored senior, and gives them the opportunity to socialize into their Golden Years. Register a free Skype account and open a world of connections for them, helping them keep in touch with friends and family who live far away. Opening a Facebook account for them is also a great way to help seniors connect with old friends and family, and gives them a place where they can see photos of their grandkids, send messages to friends, and play games.

7. Support their health: Staying active and staying healthy go hand in hand, especially for the elderly. Understanding your loved one’s health needs will power the best care you can provide when it comes to helping them stay active and interested in life. For example, knowing Grandpa uses a wheelchair to get around means planning an outing to a wheelchair accessible restaurant or venue. Understanding Grandma’s diabetes means remembering to check her blood sugar when she is over for dinner and board games. With a support system to help keep their health on track, elderly parents, grandparents and friends will feel more confident about getting out, doing something interesting, and staying active.

Top 3 Natural Ingredients to Treat Bacterial Vaginosis

Top 3 Natural Ingredients to Treat Bacterial Vaginosis


Bacterial vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection in women mostly in reproductive age. It is a mild infection of the vagina caused by bacterial unbalance and may increases the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Bacterial vaginosis is the frequent cause of an abnormal vaginal discharge or a “smelly” vaginal odor.


Causes of Bacterial Vaginosis:

Normally, many bacteria exist in the vagina. One type, called lactobacilli, known as the good bacterial, maintains the normal acidity of the vagina, thus controlling the growth of certain bacteria that cause infections. Bacterial vaginosis occurs when the number of good lactobacilli decreases and the number of other bad bacteria increases, upsetting the natural balance. Experts have found that bacterial vaginosis is more common to women who have or do the followings:
  • ·        Having a sexually transmitted disease.
  • ·        Having several sex partners or a new one.
  • ·        Doutching.
  • ·        Smoking.
  • ·        Naturally lacking of lactobacilli.
  • ·        Having a copper coil for contraception.
  • ·        Family has Afro-Caribbean origins.
  • ·        Using bubble bath or strong cleaning gel for vagina.

Bacterial vaginosis also develop in women having sex with women frequently, especially when they have several sex partners.

Symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis:

The most common symptom of bacterial vaginosis is a smelly vaginal discharge. The discharge may have the grey white or yellow color. Usually, it has an unpleasant odor, which is often described as a "fishy" smell. After having sex and during menstrual periods, the odor may become stronger. Itching is very common too. Burning during urination is reported in some cases. And actually, about half of women who have bacterial vaginosis do not notice any signs or symptoms.


Treatment for Bacterial Vaginosis:

Despite the fact that bacterial vaginosis can go away without treatment, a proper BV treatment is advised to all women who have bacterial vaginosis signs and symptoms to avoid complications and recurrence. Also, it is very important for pregnant women with even mild symptoms to be tested and treated to help reduce the risk of premature births or low weight babies.

1. Metronidazole
An antibiotic treatment is usually prescribed by doctors as an effective way to treat bacterial vaginosis.  The most common antibiotic for bacterial vaginosis is Metronidazole. It is available in tablet form or gel form.

In tablet form, the medicine will be taken orally with the usual dosage is 400-500 mg twice a day for 5-7 days. This is considered to be the most effective treatment since the bacterial vaginosis rarely returns. Do not drink alcohol during using metronidazole and for at least 48 hours after completing treatment because it can upset your stomach and cause vomiting. If you are taking metronidazole tablets, it is important to finish the 7-day course even if the symptoms seems to be get better.

     In gel form, the medicine will be applied in your vagina once a day for five days. Same as the tablet form, you should avoid drinking alcohol while using metronidazole gel and for at least 48 hours after finishing treatment. Also, metronidazole gel can cause weakening of condoms, caps and diaphragms, thus, women during treatment should use addition contraception protect herself from pregnancy and STIs.

2. Clindamycin
Clindamycin is an alternative antibiotic treatment, often used in case metronidazole did not work or the bacterial vaginosis returned. Most women use clindamycin as a cream to place in the vagina daily for at least seven days. Not using condoms during and for at least three days after you stop using the cream is necessary because it might affect the contraceptive results. Clindamycin is also available in tablet form for women to take orally. However, it is not recommended nowadays due to the risk of developing pseudomembranous colitis while using it.

3. Tinidazole
Tinidazole is another antibiotic which is sometimes used to treat bacterial vaginosis. Tinidazole will be taken by mouth as a single dose of four tablets taken at the same time. Alcohol must be avoided when taking this treatment. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, consult your doctor before using tinidazole as it may cause side effects.

Best Way To Help Your Body Protect Itself Today

Best Way To Help Your Body Protect Itself Today

Cellgevity is Max’s premiere formula and features our proprietary RiboCeine™ technology, a special blend of D-Ribose and L-Cysteine, combined with an all-star collection of 12 complementary ingredients to more effectively enhance the function of glutathione within your body.

RiboCeine™ is a patented breakthrough nutrient compound clinically proven to deliver the key precursor nutrient, cysteine, to the cell. RiboCeine™ enables the cell to produce optimal levels of glutathione.

BACK PAIN - One of our Associates (business partners) has had years of back pain. When her children were younger she used to have them walk on her back to help relieve the pain. For years she has tried all she could, but has had limited success. Since beginning on Cellgevity she has had no back pain for the past 8 months, and her costs for her monthly Max products are a tiny fraction of what she was paying previously. She is now passionate about sharing Cellgevity with all those who have chronic pain

ANKLE PAIN / WAIST PAIN - One of our Associates, a 28 year old medical doctor, has had unexplained ankle pain since he was 18 years old. The worst part is he loves to play soccer, and whenever he played the pain got very bad and he would be disabled for some time after. Tests showed nothing wrong. Since he has started on Cellgevity he can now enjoy playing soccer without pain and has had no ankle pain for the past one year. His Dad is 68 and enjoys riding his bicycle but had been unable to continue due to ongoing serious waist pain that stopped him from many activities. He started on Max products and has been pain free for the past 8 months, once again enjoying bicycling and all of his normal activities.

HEALTHY AGING/SKIN RADIANCE - one of our Associates had to get her passport photo redone. The bank didn’t believe that her photo ID was correct because she looked so much more youthful than her photo after being on Cellgevity. Many people find their skin and overall appearance improves with Max products.

PAIN & VITALITY - One of our Associates mother had surgery 4 years ago and never recovered fully. She experienced ongoing pain and it was sometimes even difficult to carry her handbag. As a widow with 5 children she had to continue working regardless, her family relied on her. After being introduced to Cellgevity she says she has never felt such vitality and happiness in all her life, she now works and even requests overtime because her well being is so wonderful.

KIDNEY DISEASE - One of our Associates’ sister, a Barrister, shared her story of being diagnosed with renal failure last year. She had dropped from 75kg to 45kg, was bed ridden for 6 months, hospitalized for 2 months, on dialysis, unable to work or care for her children, and was looking at a kidney transplant. Her doctor started her on Cellgevity, and today her kidneys show no sign of disease, she did not need any transplant, she is healthy, back to work and looking after her family.

SICKLE CELL - One of our Associates, a Medical Doctor, has a 54 year old Sickle Cell patient who frequently felt bone pain and other crises related to Sickle Cell. She has been on Cellgevity for 6 weeks and has been crisis free. This would not have been the case before Cellgevity.  He is now going to introduce it to other Sickle Cell patients.

SLEEP & ENERGY - One of our Associates is a Nurse, standing on her feet for 12 hour shifts. She gets very tired during her shift and also cannot sleep well at night. After starting Cellgevity her sleep is very refreshing and deep and has great energy all day long and for her 12 hour shift.  


ENERGY/SEXUAL PERFORMANCE - One of our new Associates has just started Cellgevity, and after just 2 days has noticed increased energy and better sexual performance. We know that there are many men with hypertension or diabetes who have challenges with sexual performance. We often have testimonies that Cellgevity and MaxATP work wonders for anyone with these issues.

INJURY RECOVERY - One of our Associates played professional football Internationally. His football career was cut short due to injury. He returned to Ghana with a limp and looking for a career change. He tried Cellgevity and after the first day he went from limping to walking much better. He was convinced, joined Max as an Associate, and less than 3 months later is a Bronze Associate, and will make close to $500USD or more.

HYPERTENSION / ENLARGED HEART - One of our Associates gave Max products to a Pastor who has been struggling with high blood pressure and an enlarged heart, in and out of hospital and in the house for the past year. After 3 weeks, he is feeling much better, is sleeping well and says he feels very strong. He is eager to begin his second month of Cellgevity.

EYESIGHT - One of our Associates, a medical doctor, has found after 2 weeks that his eyesight is improved. Before taking Cellgevity, he was unable to read without his eyeglasses. Now he finds he is able to read without reaching for his eyeglasses immediately and can see his eyesight is improving.

ATHLETIC RECOVERY - An Associate who is very active in sports has normally experienced aches and pains after exercise, and particularly the morning after he does strenuous sports activities. Since starting Cellgevity, the recovery is much faster and he no longer wakes up with aches and pains after his sporting activities.

PROSTATE & SURGERY RECOVERY - one of our Associate’s father’s had surgery for prostate cancer. The surgery did not go well and he was in pain. He returned for a second and then a 3rd surgery but the pain was still very bad. He was unable to move from the bed and his family had to help him bathe and relieve himself. The doctors recommended a 4th surgery. Instead he was introduced to cellgevity. After 4 days he was up and wanting to drive. He has now resumed all his activities, no pain, and no 4th surgery.

ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER - One of our Associates, a Pharmacist, gave Cellgevity to a parent who used one capsule a day with her 13-year-old son who was experiencing Attention Deficit Disorder and lack of focus in class. After one month on Cellgevity, his parents and teachers have noticed a remarkable improvement in attention and focus.

DOWN’S SYNDROME - one of our Associate’s has a 2-year-old daughter who the Doctor’s feel may have Down’s Syndrome, or perhaps something else. At 2 years, the daughter doesn’t speak, crawl or walk. The father started giving her MaxOne, our pure RiboCeine product. She started to speak and then crawl. She is now trying to teach herself to walk. The family is overwhelmed and grateful.

DIABETES - One of our Associates started to feel very unwell and was diagnosed with high blood sugar. He was placed on medication for 2 months by his doctor which did not do much good. He was then placed on a different medication for 2 months also with limited results. Somebody introduced Cellgevity to him and after a month he was doing very well. His medication for diabetes has been reduced and combined now with cellgevity his blood sugar is very well controlled.
one of our esteemed Medical Doctor & Professor is doing animal studies in Nigeria on Diabetes and is finding the results on Cellgevity to be remarkable.

MENSTRUAL/HORMONAL ISSUES - One of our pharmacists gave Cellgevity to 2 different women both with the same issue. The first woman was 34 years old and not had her menses for 4 years, the other was 40 yrs and with no menses for 2 years. After starting on Cellgevity they both began to flow normally after just a few weeks. Another woman with a lot of pain during her menstrual cycle and with her menses being too short, now has no pain and a normal cycle after Cellgevity. We have many testimonies of irregular or painful periods normalizing after Cellgevity.
