The foundation of earth is one of the best creations and sanctifications of God. He has gifted us with, four types of seasons, and high-quality food from diverse sources. Allah has blessed us with a variety of senses for our proper well being along with self approval, so in that way we can develop a healthy environment. Environment is the only factor which is greatly interlinked with the inhabitants of that place, and plays a major part in safeguarding of their health. It has numerous forms including natural environment, biophysical environment, built up environment, and others.
As we all know that “health is wealth”, so it matters a lot in the appropriate performance of our body, and substantial for proper functioning of our lives. Environment delivers profound result on our well being and influences it directly or indirectly. Health is seriously affected by immunological effects falling under specific category of chemicals and radiations. Different factors such as physiological, psychological, social, mental and cultural contribute alot in apt built up of healthy environment. Other factors such as proper housing, urban development, transport and occupied land are also vital for the hale and hearty atmosphere.
Certain physical characteristics and factors regarding environment have a very innate influence on us. It involves different kind of indoor or outdoor air, smoke prevailing in air influence health badly, and causes several diseases such as respiratory disorders, inflammation in lungs etc. Dust particles suspended in air are inhaled by the individuals that are source of harmful results too, and in order to get rid of such destructive situation we should plant maximum trees. This will lead in the reduction of pollutants, provision of the dust free environment.
Some natural disasters for instance wars, earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods affect human health adversely. In these circumstances lots of epidemics break out due to diverse sort of pollutants and chemicals. So people of those regions should be shifted in safe areas before their possible occurrence to avoid its damaging end results. Precautionary measures should be taken by the Government and people themselves. Government should provide sufficient quantity of food, so that they should not have to face any kind of nutritional deficiency which leads to different diseases.
Distinctive type of climatic conditions such as excess of cold in winters and hot summers also initiate many ailments. As we all know that sunlight is essential for humans because it provides them Vitamin D, inspite of its merits it also has some demerits as its ultraviolet rays affect the human health and its excess leads to sun burns etc. So we should be prepared in advance through preventive measures.
Environment should be facilitated with safe and clean water so that people shouldn’t face diseases such as typhoid or hepatitis A (acute hepatitis). Proper system of sanitation and sewage should be implemented. There should be proper disposal of medical waste such as used syringes and other medical equipments by the management. Vector control techniques should be applied to avoid unwanted mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, and rodent which are responsible for polluting the environment by transmitting different kinds of pathogens. Proper systems of spraying in the environment i.e. houses, parks and the other areas should be put into operation.
Over crowding is the burning concern due to the massive migration of people. People living in small houses suffer from unhygienic conditions related to their housing or food. Members of that area should recover it by mutual contributions and efforts in collaboration with the superior authorities. Houses and working places should have enough spaces for their workers and the inhabitants. So that there is a minimum tendency for diseases to be transmit by close interaction. Last but not least, environment leaves its upshots on our health but we have to choose between a healthy or detrimental atmosphere by self effort and responsibility.

Heart is the most vital organ of the human body. The foremost job of the heart is to pump the blood in the entire human body and it directs it to every part so it can distribute the energy to every cell. If this organ suffers through any trouble the whole body experiences panic during that period. It is reported in the recent research reports of WHO that 48% death are occurred due to cardiovascular diseases. But Allah Almighty has not created any disease without its treatment. Humans have been bestowed with the wisdom to find the solutions for the problems they face. So we have to do some efforts and struggle in order to cope with them efficiently. World Heart Day is a part of such efforts and it’s celebrated on 29th September all around the globe. Initially it was celebrated on every last Sunday of the month September since 1999 to 2010.

The World Heart Federation is the non-governmental organization that organizes it. It is doing great efforts with its partners and other member to create an awareness that can be recognized at international level regarding heart health. As a minimum 80% of premature deaths can be controlled that take place as a result of cardiac diseases and stroke if we restrict those factors that are the actual threatening element in this context. In order to do so proper understanding is necessary to create desirable responsiveness from the society and for this purpose different activities are arranged such as lectures, scientific discussions, health and fitness gatherings,  organized walks, shows, festivals and sporting events.

The World Heart Federation has chosen “take the road to a healthy heart” as the main idea in Year 2013. The movement focuses on a life-course approach to the avoidance and to manage heart disease with a focus on women and children, for the reason that healthy children lead to fit adults and fit adults bring about hale and hearty families and populations. The focus on the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) among women and kids will be emphasized in the current year, reinforcing the reality that from childhood through adulthood we have the chance to put a stop to the trouble of cardiac disease and stroke and arrive at the objective of a 25 per cent decline in CVD deaths by 2025.

As stated earlier, we can stay away from early deaths due to cardiac diseases if we strive to overcome and control the risky aspects that are the root cause of such consequences. These factors include high blood pressure, diabetes, raised cholesterol, overweight, smoking, lack of physical activity, unhealthy diet, and increased glucose level. All of these causes are controllable if one really tries with enthusiasm and the results will be outstanding if they are monitored under the guidance of a health care expert.

Fasting is a very familiar practice for all of us generally. But sometimes it varies from the perspective of its main objective as some people fast due to religious purposes, some due to diet or attaining spiritual peace. It also differs from religion to religion like Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism. Its duration and phases fluctuates too. But the common point is that offers a lot of health benefits.

To begin with, it brings harmony, inner peace, and raises our awareness and these characteristics play a major function in stabilizing our mental health and fitness. It provides us with the opportunity to come up for air from our every day lifestyle and confers a possibility for our body to take a pause and gives break to its different organs. Fasting helps out for the accomplishment of abdominal fitness. As it purifies our body from the excessive and contaminated stuff, relaxes digestive tract, filters our intestines, and lightens the stomach by clearing fats. Additionally, it removes toxins from our body and consequently results as detoxification. During fasting as our body is not allowed for the intake of food so it utilizes the fats reserved in our body. These fats are initially the extra carbohydrates and glucose not consumed by human body and then transferred into fats. So for the period of fasting when we draw on these fats for obtaining get-up-and-go ability, chemicals are released from the fatty acids within the internal mechanism. Subsequently, those chemicals are wiped out through different organs and end result is purification of our entire body.

It also possesses anti-cancer perspective as recent research supports this fact that fasting makes the cancer treatment more bearable. The healing tendency is increased and victims put up with chemotherapies in a healthier way. Moreover in the absence of intake of food our body does not give any chance to tumor growth. Fasting also enhances immune system, because, during fast when one is not ingesting food then energy turns away on the way to immune system and metabolism instead of digestive system. It leads to improved protein development and growth hormones. It is also discovered that an anti-aging hormone production is also observed during the period of fasting. Fasting results in the immunoglobulin intensification that leads to the strengthening of immune system.

Fasting covers very promising ways in order to get rid of drugs like heroine, alcohol, nicotine etc. furthermore, it enhances sensory awareness, normalizes blood pressure, re-establishes cell oxygenation, develops insulin sensitivity, and stabilizes nervous system. So we can analyze that it offers huge benefits, this verity is very clearly stated in a Hadith “Fast and be healthy.” (Ibn As-Sunni and Abu Nu΄aym, and As-Suyuti graded it as Hasan.)

But one has to keep in mind that fast does not mean cutting our diet to an extreme. In the same way while breaking our fast, avoid from overeating and initially prefer fruit and vegetables. Certain limitations are there, when one is suffering from severe disease or his/her health conditions are not very compatible then he/she can skip it as clearly stated in the Holy Quran “(Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (Should be made up) from days later. For those who can do it (With hardship), is a ransom, the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free will, it is better for him. And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew.” (2:184). So fasting really helps us in bringing serenity to our lives and accomplishing peaceful health.

Claudication, derived from the latin verb claudicare, meaning “to limp”. It refers to the severe pain in legs, specifically experienced during exercise or walking. This pain is typically felt in the calf muscles, caused by the inadequate supply of blood in legs due to the hardening of arteries. Its occurrence can be ascribed due to the arterial spasm, atherosclerosis, or any blockage of artery.

Initially the pain is not very severe and a person is able to walk with it. But, as the disease becomes more severe this state will become brutal and intolerable, so the sufferer is not able to walk. Walking with flat shoes or bare foot makes it more noticeable and obvious. Because the symptoms are intermittent so they can be resolved easily by taking some rest. The signs of claudication can be imitated with other conditions like arthritis and neuropathy.

This malady can be alleviated by avoiding smoking completely if a person is chain smoker, because tobacco is harmful in various contexts. Firstly, the hardening of arteries becomes more rapid, and secondly it forms clumps in small collateral vessels which decreases the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscles.
It can also be treated through cutting down cholesterol level in our diet, because it leads to put on weight more speedily. Added weight will cause difficulty for the leg muscles in carrying more blood for fulfilling the required demand. It can be controlled through taking low fat diet or cholesterol lowering drugs.

Exercise is also a good regimen in order to avoid intermittent claudication because regular exercise raises the walking intervals. When one feels that the pain has enhanced and becomes critical, then take a break until the pain ceases, and when feels relaxed then he/she can start walking again.

High blood pressure can also lead to this disorder because it deteriorates the arteries more swiftly. It can be lessened through taking low sodium diet. Wearing flat shoes can also become a source of this trouble because all the pressure exerts on it. Slightly raised heel can take some pressure off from the calf muscles and can assuage the person.

In the current scenario we are living in a modern and sophisticated environment, where we have brought so many changes in the way of our living. So do we have in our way of intake of food, the way we eat and drink is not the same as it was several years ago. For enhancing business volume and achieving profitable sale, advance farming techniques, including the use of pesticides, fertilizers are getting very common now a days.

But the bitter reality is these practices are opted at the cost of our own health as due to such practices our food has been ended as electrolyte affluent, far less healthy, and with reduced amount of mineral. Other than food the atmosphere is so much exposed to destructive toxins and metals. In order to have appropriate fitness, we require encompassing heavy metals but in a form that our body can make use of. So the issue is how to chuck out this hurdle. Auspiciously, the earth itself has given us with two exceptionally heady associates Humic and Fulvic acids. Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid work collectively to eliminate superfluous salt acids that enclose & harden cell walls, constructing cell permeability. Humic acid has the capacity to break down the salt acids that upsurge on the cell membrane, and fulvic acid has the ability to transfer nutrients into the cell and swill out toxins away of the cell. Due to such potential once it gets in touch with the cell; Fulvic Ionic Minerals can together stabilize and boost cell life and biological properties. When individual cell is reinstate to its standard chemical permanence and electrical potential then it has established a new life, so in that case death and breakdown would take place normally. Including radiation and petroleum, both of them will break the unions of inert matter and alter them into organic matter and eliminate them out of the body.

Fulvic Acid is regarded as the main dominant type of Oral Chelation and illustrates an incredible ability for electrochemical stability. It offers a huge number of intrinsic worth; it stimulates wisdom of happiness and well being by nourishing every cell in the body. Humic substances consist of a significant feature that they can unite with oxides, metal ions, and clay minerals to form water soluble or insoluble complexes, and can intermingle with natural compounds such as fatty acids, alkenes, pesticides, and capillary active substances. It plays a major biological role in viruses, bacteria, fungi, and plants.

Fulvic Ionic minerals make food, herbs, and supplements bio-available so due to this ability it develops there effectiveness. They have the special gift as they can respond with both negatively and positively charged, unpaired electrons. As far as free radicals are concerned they can leave them harmless, or transform them into new useable compounds, or take them out of the body as waste. Fulvic acid has terrific benefits; it boosts mental clarity, increases immune system and also regulates it, potentiates the accessibility of necessary nutrients ,work as a catalyst for enzymatic effects, facilitates in balancing hormonal level, kills pathogens, reduces curing time considerably, oxygenates the blood, confiscates discoloration owing to skin marks, supports thyroid gland, enhances circulation, aids in slowing down aging progression.

But one should bear in mind that only fulvic acid cannot repair our body alone. We should support it by having healthy and balance diet, exercising in a balanced way, taking rest when one needs to have it. So crux of the whole discussion is that Fulvic is an elixir of life in a real sense and it is the demand of present era when there is an alarming need of detoxifying our body.
