  Celebrity-driven image culture behind growing demand for steroids

Celebrity-driven image culture behind growing demand for steroidsDoping officials and members of the general public are raising their deep concerns over the growing demand and popularity of steroids despite the fact that the government has already claimed that it has already enforced tight control on the manufacture and distribution of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. But, truth cannot be hidden for long and the underlying truth is that steroid usage is growing at an all-time high.

The biggest reason: celebrity driven image culture.

With news about sportsmen and other celebrities taking up anabolic steroids to stay ahead of the competition and maintain the “invincibility” factor, more and more “followers” have already started using steroids without understanding possible side effects. With big names such as Sylvester Stallone saying that he is an old man jumping around trying to look young and being busted at the Sydney Airport with 48 vials of human growth hormone Jintropin, things cannot be expected to settle down. The only thing that can happen from here on is popularity of steroids.

As per members of the general public and doping officials, things cannot be corrected unless highly stringent measures are implemented. Till this happens, illegal importation, unauthorized steroid usage, and distribution of anabolic steroids will continue despite all odds.

Liver protection for steroid usersWhatever medications you are taking, you must see to it that your valuable body organs are well taken care of and preserved from any adverse effect. It is a widely prevalent practice for bodybuilders and weightlifters to use performance enhancing drugs to keep up with their competitive environment. They can be in injectable form like Trembolone and Testosterone or they can be taken orally like Anadrol and Dianabol. Injectables pass through the liver once while oral medications pass through the liver twice. The effects of orals are more stressful and severe to the liver than of injectables. Users must find some kind of remedy to keep their liver from possible damage.

Liv52 is an herbal product found to protect the liver. It contains a mixture of herbs, like Jhavuka, Negro coffee, yarrow, wild chicory, capers, black nightshade and arjuna, that are clinically proven to improve the efficiency and function of the liver through stimulating effects.

Hepatic treatments using this product shows a definite improvement in the number of functioning liver cells (hepatocytes). The liver enzymes are also found to return to normal with increases in proteins, albumin and hemoglobin after treatment. Liv52 comes in easy to swallow capsules that do not leave an aftertaste or any unpleasant odor to your mouth.

According to Dr. Rajesh Nair:

The users have to find a remedy to get those enzyme levels down and to cleanse the liver of all the toxins that have built up due to extended steroid use. Among the various products available to protect the liver, Liv 52 is undoubtedly the most popular. Introduced in 1955 and now sold all over the world, this herbal preparation offers comprehensive liver care. Apart from being an effective protection against cirrhosis, hepatitis, fatty liver and elevated liver enzymes, it is also the best cure for these conditions in affected cases.

Steroid therapy for acute sinusitis!The statistics show that every year, almost 37 million Americans suffer from the sinus allergies which include nasal congestion, postnasal drip leading to severe sinusitis.

For those of you unknown to this condition must know that sinusitis is basically the inflammation of the mucous membrane that line the sinus cavities. There are a number of steroid sprays available like Flonase, Nasonex and Rhinocort which have been proved to be highly beneficial for the reduction of this inflammation. This also leads to promoting the drainage in the sinuses which are often prescribed to treat chronic sinusitis and other similar allergies symptoms.

A few reviews have appeared in the issue of The Cochrane Library , a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration which is an international body that evaluates research in all possible areas of health care. These systematic reviews have drawn some great evidence-based conclusions about medical practice after considering the content and quality of existing trials on the subject.

However, there are few aftermaths of employing nasal steroids for conditions like sinusitis and the like but one should know that they are fairly expensive. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has released a paper which says that diagnosing and treating sinusitis costs Americans nearly $6 billion per year.
