A 13-year life without gluten

This is a very sensitive subject for me as my nephew is living with celiac disease. It was not discovered until he was 10 years. Her parents couldn’t understand why he had stomach aches and diarrhea after eating meals. After very encouraging, they took him to their primary care doctor. The doctor has a battery of tests and announced that the cause of his discomfort was celiac disease. This was the first time I had never heard of this disease. Needless to say, I was shocked. I’m a chef and as a chef I faced a lot of requests for the preparation of the meal. Many times patrons tell us precautions due to allergies to seafood, allergic reaction to nuts, etc., but never had a patron alert me gluten free needs.

Now I am very aware that a gluten-free diet is a treatment for celiac disease and living gluten-free life is so very important! When a person with celiac disease consumes any food containing gluten, causes inflammation in the small intestine. Eating gluten free foods helps people with celiac disease control symptoms and prevent complications.

Diet of switching my nephew was a big change and, as something new, took some getting used to. At first my grandson couldn’t understand why there were so many restrictions: no McDonald; No Pizza Hut; no birthday cake? However, we started to get him focused on all foods that you can eat. You may also be pleasantly surprised to realize how many gluten-free products, such as bread and pasta, are now available. Many grocery stores now sell gluten-free foods. Fortunately, in our area many of our grocery stores sell a wide variety of these items. My nephew really loves the pizza crust without gluten and the donuts. (We have yet to find a “Big Mac” gluten free “at any store). If you can’t find gluten-free products in your area, go online to Katz Gluten-Free Foods, where you’ll find a nice variety of gluten-free foods that are very tasty.

If you’re just starting with a gluten-free diet, it is in your best interest to consult a dietician who can answer your questions and offer advice on how to avoid consuming gluten while still eating a healthy and balanced diet. Once again, I’m a Cook, not a dietician. Can I follow a recipe; tell you if an ingredient that contains gluten, but I can’t answer all your questions as a qualified dietician. We worked with a dietician as we began our diet to switch my grandson and we’re glad we did.

Working to build a variety of meal choices for my nephew brought me to make a list of DOS and Don’ts for planning a gluten-free diet. I hope this list will help you as you work to develop a selection of meal choices for you or who can help.

Things to do:

Eat only foods that are naturally gluten-free as beans, fresh eggs, fresh meat, fish or poultry, fresh fruit and vegetables and most dairy products (read the label of any product from milk to be certain).

It is important to be sure to select foods that are not processed or mixed with cereals containing gluten. Many cereals and starch can be part of a gluten-free diet. Those can include buckwheat, corn, cornmeal, quinoa, rice, tapioca, rice flour, potato starch and tapioca flour.

Note: for me, it took me to “educate” my nephew and his parents on the need to accept the fact that you can survive without fast foods. It requires actually prepare and eat meals together at home.

The Don’ts
Avoid all foods and drinks containing wheat, rye, barley and malt. Also be careful, avoid other wheat products that you may not be familiar with how bulgar, semolina and flour.

Important advice when shopping for a person with celiac disease is to not buy the object, unless it is labeled GLUTEN-FREE! There are so many elements “tricky” and some that are obvious. For example, beer. Personally, I’m glad that beer is one of “I Dont” then my niece won’t be tempted to attend its festivals of friends where you are serving beer.

Chronic fatigue syndrome: effects

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), is a disease in which the patient constantly feels fatigued and is not helped by sleep or rest. While there is no cure for the CFS, there are many treatments available to soothe the symptoms. Even if the effects will cease for an extended period of time, the symptoms associated with CFS may be quite restrictive to the victim, and some are listed here:

As with many diseases, one of the first indicators of CFS is nausea; It is likely that the onset of CFS will flu-like symptoms on sick, quickly followed by a persistent fatigue that won’t go away. These are the first signs of starting to act and there are a number of other effects that can cause, with some people living in more than others.

The term “myalgic encephalomyelitis” means pain in the muscles and inflammation of the brain and spinal cord; Thus, an effect of the syndrome is particularly muscle pain throughout the body, making the victim unable to do much in the way of activities and daily chores. This lack of social activity can cause effects psychologically jarring as well, like depression, irritability, anxiety and panic attacks. Isolation from family and friends mean that the victim will usually also be able to get out of bed due to tired and aching muscles and lack of motivation.

Other short-term effects include loss of concentration, and in some cases, loss of memory for specific periods. Physical effects can vary from headache sore throat, the usual symptoms of a bad cold/flu; However, adding the rest not to impede these signs, which can cause further problems with major organs.

Palpitations, increased heart rate and shortness of breath in certain situations is likely to occur in more severe cases and sometimes the body is able to adapt to sudden changes in temperature, or the victim may begin to suffer from allergies that have not experienced before.

As regards the long-term effects, many CFS symptoms begin to clear up over time, but the disease can still take its toll. Although fatigue cannot be as persistent, it is likely that it will be activated after the strenuous activity and excessive affirmation. Far from the physical effects and in addition to the social problems which can lead, CFS also affects those who cannot earn a living and have to get disability. Younger sufferers can have problems at school and need to be taught independently which of course can affect social growth, as well as their academic balance.

CFS can affect anyone, at any age, of any background; Although the effects and symptoms may vary, the personal and social obstacles, which sets the victim is more drastic. Is an unusual disease that can operate in very unusual models and this can really affect a person’s life and work. Although it cannot be cured, it can be softened through special diets and treatments, pain management, and has no controlling your life.

Five effective tips for blood pressure control

In today’s hectic life high blood pressure has become a very common health disorder. Is a very dangerous condition for health and is often called the ‘ silent killer ‘ as it hardly shows symptoms before hand, but the good thing is that with small changes in lifestyle that this problem can be controlled. In this article let us discuss some of the effective ways to keep our blood pressure under control.

Common causes

People today have a completely different type of lifestyle than people 20 years ago. The main difference lies in the type of food we eat, which is giving way to a lot of disease and high blood pressure is one of them. Also due to hectic work schedules and extra work pressure that it is quite normal that suffers from blood pressure problems.

Here are some of the things that one can do to stay healthy and lead a normal life without any kind of health ailments.

1. weight

Obesity is a leading cause of many health ailments so it is very important to keep your weight under control. This can be done by adopting a healthier lifestyle and active, exercising regularly, doing yoga and taking a deep sleep. If a person can keep his weight under the normal level automatically become immune to diabetes even of many diseases.

2. stress

Is a major cause of high blood pressure so that it is very important to keep stress levels to indulge in relaxing activities. Keep company with people who feel happy with, indulging in yoga and meditation and working pressure to keep in place of work does not take it home.

3. Salt

After a particular age that is very important to control the amount of salt you eat. Salt contains sodium and may cause the blood pressure increase instantaneously.

4 Smoking

Smoking and alcohol are like poison to a patient of high blood pressure. Both of these substances are harmful to our overall health and increase the chances of premature death for life-threatening diseases. So if you love yourself and your family to stop taking these harmful substances.

5. visit a doctor

Most people only go to a doctor when they fall ill and severally but it is advisable and very important to have regular health check-ups, so that even if there is no disease can be controlled and treated in its early stages and does not become life threatening.

How to heal yourself, of heart disease

At the physical layer, the heart acts as a pump to two-way for the circulatory system. As such, it is life that gives the governing body that regulates the flow of vital strength throughout the body. Coronary artery disease is the most common cause of death in North America. As reiterated in my previous articles, traditional medicine has a hard time identifying what causes the disease and why some people have them and others do not.

The traditional view:
Traditional medicine or traditional medical practices today, teaches us that every disease is the result of a physical cause. For heart disease, the cause is commonly attributed to factors such as smoking, genetics, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, high alcohol consumption, lack of exercise and stress. Research has shown smoking seems to be the cause of about 36% of the cases and obesity about 20%.

Depending on what is happening at the physical layer, these causes more identifiable because it occurs in a person’s body. Unfortunately, there’s never a solid and reliable, which can be detected by traditional medicine and its counterparts. Why? Because the physical body is not the origin of the disease and illness, and until you have understood the actual source, the confusion remains.

The body has no power to himself:
According to our traditional thinking, we believe that illness and disease are caused by something wrong physically in our bodies. For heart disease, the physical cause is primarily attributed to high and genetics. But these are not the true causes. Why? Because the physical layer, including our bodies, is the level of the effect, not the cause itself. If this is true, and nothing physical is the cause, what is? In a general sense, is the emotional and mental levels, like all things exist in the mind, before becoming a physicists.

Very practically, the physical body can do nothing in and of itself. Has no power to create anything, including sickness, illness and disease. Power comes from being involved and it seems that the physical layer is the effect layer; It has no power to create. The physical body simply reflects the mental. In other words, our physical bodies are not more than a mirror of what is happening within us emotionally and mentally.

The real cause of heart disease:
As unfortunate as it may be, traditional medicine is seeking the causes of illness and disease in the wrong places. Actually, something physical, such as not smoking can cause a physical effect in the form of a disease or illness. In other words, an effect cannot create another effect, only because it can create an effect. With that being so, because there are similar physical actions or symptoms of people who share an illness or a disease? Basically, it’s because they’re trying to find a way to relieve pain and emotional and mental imbalance which take place within them.

Interestingly, the heart is located practically in the center of the body. If a person is centered, are living from the heart in a balanced State of love and trust. A cardiac disorder is the manifestation of the opposite mindset. This person is fighting the power of life to the point of physical and emotional exhaustion. Often the person with heart disease seeking love through what others do. In essence, the disease is an urgent message from your body to change the perception of themselves.

How to cure diabetes:
As I mentioned in my previous articles, this new paradigm of thinking requires us to let go of the belief that illness and disease is an enemy that is not needed. Everything in our lives is an expression of love or a call to love. Disease and illness, in whatever form, is an invitation for us to love ourselves, because we don’t live for love in an area or areas of our lives. Is designed to take us forward in life, don’t take us back or destroy us.

Illness and disease is a message from our body, helps us to be aware of what we are not aware of. The disease is a specific message that do not allow proper flow in your life; If the flow of ideas, love or your life much. To bring healing, you need to tap into a source of love within you by changing the belief that love can only come from others. Give you the love you seek, and will always be there. Start believing that you deserve love and affection from others and that you are just as lovable as everyone else.

4 practical ways that you can do to grow long hair Fast

Advertise with my Blog My hair grows slowly-what does it mean? In a nutshell, this may simply mean my scalp is healthy and in better condition than it should be. This brings my hair even be unhealthy and not in his best condition naturally so that my hair grows naturally optimal speed or faster.
It may also simply mean that might fall faster than they can ‘ restore ‘ or grow my hair. Or does it mean that my hair is weak and unhealthy, splits, are fragile and break easily. It also says my general health, lifestyle, diet, scalp care, hair care, emotional state or physical state or all of these factors, needs my attention, care and ‘ fine tuning ‘.
The fact is, when the scalp and hair is healthy, about 90% of the hair is growing all the time at the optimum speed and of course healthy–while the remaining 10% is resting. After my hair rests for a couple of months, my hair healthy naturally falls to make room for my new hair. When i get my new hair grow, healthily, naturally grow as half an inch each month.
But when I have those factors ‘ block or slow hair growth ‘ arrival, this whole process is disrupted and soon you will see this effect or consequence when I look in my mirror and, or see how more than 50 hairs are shed each day from my head!
So, what are the ways to get around these factors is disturbing and disruptive ‘?
Economic ways, expensive ways, ways of scientific ways, luxurious natural ways, ways of chemically induced, combination of ways of this and that, with Ayurvedic treatments, learn ways to rest and relax, eat well, live well, good scalp massage, or if you can afford to splash a lot more money, just do the transplanted hair, natural hair extensions or wear natural hair wigs!
We examine how feasible for normal people, like a normal busy working MOM with two kids like me.
1) Diet
Eat foods rich in protein (this makes keratin which is what the hair is made of), B vitamins (reduce hair loss), antioxidants such as vitamins C, E and to detoxify and cleanse our system to build new hair cells and strengthen the hair, foods rich in iron and zinc.
Iron gets oxygen to the cells and hair follicles too-very important for hair and scalp healthy. Two things can make zinc-to grow our bodies and repairing our tissues like hair.
For all this goodness can I obtain them either from taking supplements (as recommended by my doctor) or eat things like eggs, lean meat, fish, nuts, beans, soy stuff, bananas, seafood, spinach, peas, broccoli (green leafy vegetables) and whole grains, oranges, lemons, strawberries, kiwi fruit, fortified foods, etc.
If possible, try to have these fresh foods and canned processed or not. Would much rather Cook the healthy way as steamed and grilled instead of deep frying or deep fried. Do it constantly (I have them in your diet every day) and your body gets the diet ‘ blocks ‘ to grow hair very fast.
And another tip, drink plenty of water. As they say, 8 glasses would be great and if it is possible to have 2-3 glasses like first thing in the morning after you wake up, this can do wonders for your health-water removes all accumulated bacteria and toxins from your system.
2) lifestyle
In summary, this means maintaining physical and mental health in tip-top condition as possible-because the mental health or emotional well-being is also fundamental to remain positive.
I just talked about eating well as one of the ways to grow hair very fast. So what should we do with our everyday life? For a great start healthy, if you smoke, stop-or at least work to get out of this bad habit it’s self-destroying ‘. It’s basically burning money ‘ for no benefit at all.
So for heavy drinkers or regular party goers, go easy on alcohol. A SIP or two of wine or brandy ‘ sano ‘ Gets our blood circulating and carries blood up to my cheeks (cheeks ‘ blush ‘ when I drink), but not as gulp down glass after glass, like any other night at parties, social gatherings or at home on their own. Excessive alcohol burns the liver-especially on an empty stomach.
Then stay healthy by doing regular exercise such as running, brisk walking, jogging, yoga, swimming, dancing, biking, cycling, climbing, skating, playing tennis, playing soccer and much more that can be done. I love the outdoors!

The do's and Don'ts of hair healthy and beautiful

If you want your hair to grow and prosper, the best thing you can do for it is to cure properly. If you can do that well, it will grow rapidly.

Below, we will explain some of the dos and Don’ts of taking care of your hair and promote healthy growth.

To do:

1. Use comb/hairbrush made from natural materials

When you choose a comb or hairbrush, try one made from natural materials. Wood Combs & brushes from boar hair are good choices. Brushes and combs are much less likely to cause hair breakage than those made with artificial materials.

2. use a mask for natural hair for healthy growth

Your hair needs to nourish and moisturise to grow and you can meet these requirements by using a mask for natural hair with a collagen proteins and vegetable oil mixed in it. Apply on a regular basis.

Avoid using masks containing silicon and other substances that can damage your hair.

Not to do:

1. Tie your hair, pull it back too tight

If you tie your hair back, make sure it’s not too pulled back. Continually putting too much pressure on its roots can cause it to break, or even fall.

Don’t worry if you usually wear your hair up-that alone will not keep growing, but you have to be careful not to press too firmly in place.

2. don’t hold your hair dryer too close to the scalp

When drying your hair, don’t use an excessively high temperature setting and not hold your hair dryer any closer to the scalp.

In addition, should refrain from the use of straightening or curling irons, as these tools often cause damage and breakage of hair and broken and damaged hair does not grow at the same pace.

3. Keep the use of chemicals to a minimum

Keep the use of hair chemicals to a minimum.

Lacquer is well-known to leave your hair dry, brittle and susceptible to damage. Coloring it or treat it regularly with other chemicals can also cause rupture, because these treatments damage the keratin in the hair, making them thinner.

4. avoid using hard water

Avoid using hard water to wash my hair. Fresh water is better.

Limestone in hard water can easily damage your hair, especially if other factors were already weakened. If your water is hard, use bottled water, at least for rinsing your hair after you wash it.

5. do not scrub too often/vigorously

Be careful not to brush your hair too often or too vigorously. Overdoing it might pull out some.

Falling hair with a little white bulb at the end

A little white bulb at the end of a hair fallen is not in itself a cause for concern. Indicates only that the follicle has gone through various phases of the growth cycle before the thread was paid. Although this is a normal process (even in the absence of any type of hair loss disorder), the white bulb is not usually seen until, or unless the scatter becomes excessive-pushing one to examine their fallen strands.

If you suspect a problem, an examination of the bulb can provide professionals with clues as to the nature and the cause of the disorder. The shape, size and color will determine which stage of the growth cycle of hair was before the fall. and if any abnormalities are present.

The first phase of the cycle, the period of active growth, anagen is called. During this time the hair is securely anchored deeply within the follicle. Removing an anagen hair from a healthy scalp would require a pinch, forced. The tip would reveal a small rounded or slightly pigmented, light bulb that can be surrounded by a fence of sac-as reported.

After every single hair has reached its full growth potential, the follicle moves into what is known as “catagen”. Although catagen lasts only a week or two, many changes occur during this period preparing for the formation of the white bulb. The lower follicle shrinks. Disappears the inner sheath of the root. Pigmentation ceases. Cellular material (such as that of the outer root sheath) which is no longer required to support growth, began to migrate to the base of the filament.

Once all the catagen changes have occurred the follicle enters what is known as “telogen”. In early telogen remaining cells that are no longer needed to migrate to the base of the hair. Because it has ceased to pigmentation, these cells are unpigmented. These non-pigmented cells cluster together to form the “mysterious white bulb that acts as an anchor to hold the hair in the follicle while it” supports “for about three months before being released. The telogen phase is also referred to as the rest.

Any hair that fall with an attached white bulb indicates that it has cycled through the telogen phase before falling. Due to the shape, these filaments are also referred to as animal hair club. This feature will be present in daily normal shedding. Unless the shedding is excessive, there is no cause for concern.

The most common condition that causes excessive shedding with a white bulb is associated with telogen effluvium. Because each hair follicle at any stage of the growth cycle may be affected, fallen strands can be of different lengths.

With alopecia areata hair are often spread during the telogen phase, but in some cases that can be paid during the anagen or it can break. The threads interested may have an “exclamation point.” A small portion of the right wire to the scalp becomes very thin, giving the appearance of an exclamation mark. Because the hair is very thin at this point can also break. Although the most common form of alopecia areata causes bald patches, there are other variations of this condition that cause other severe patterns of baldness.

The absence of a visible white light bulb might indicate that the hair fell during the anagen phase, as in the loose anagen syndrome or anagen effluvium. It could also indicate that broke off, rather than fell out.

Fertility and thin women-what are the problems, it's better to be overweight or underweight

Being overweight or underweight affect fertility? OF COURSE!

For hundreds of years, fertility in women is represented by prominent and large stomach and Mons pubis as well as full breasts breasts. However, many women today are driven by society to keep slim and sexy body that is defined by the seductive curves of models and celebrities. Many times, this undermines their ability to get pregnant later.

Contrary to common belief, it’s not just overweight that can affect female fertility. Both are underweight and overweight creates adverse effects on fertility. You believe that the level of weight influences the level of production of hormones in the body that regulate ovulation and pregnancy as progesterone and estrogen.

Being underweight means that a woman’s body mass index (BMI) reaches the normal BMI level which is between 18.5 and 24.9. On the other hand, people are considered overweight if their body mass index exceeds the upper limit. If the BMI of a person goes beyond 30, he or she is considered to be obese. As research shows, obese people are less likely to conceive.

Statistics revealed that underweight pregnant women are five times at risk of having children underweight. Also, not being an underweight, women increase their chances of having healthy children by five times. In one study, it was discovered that 75% of underweight women who decided to put on weight actually have conceived.

According to research, fertility problems are more likely to occur in lean women than women. Some thin women are not menstruating. Some are having menses, but they don’t ovulate. Some women are menstruating and Ovulating still are having a hard time conceiving. In some cases, menstruation, women ovulate and conceive but soon they experience difficulty in sustaining the pregnancy up to the end.

Underweight women usually have irregular cycles. In cases severely underweight, can completely stop menstruation. In some cases, it may also prevent ovulation. In addition to irregular cycles, it is said that underweight women produce low levels of the hormone estrogen, which negatively affect fertility in women.

With irregular cycles, women are less likely to conceive. Research shows that the irregularity of menstrual cycle negatively affects the lining of the uterus, making it less able to support a fetus. Even though the conception takes place, underweight women are more likely to have a miscarriage due to the inability of the uterus to create a suitable and ideal for the fetus to grow. The fertilized egg usually takes thick Uterine lining to support fetal growth.

Recent research has shown that the reproductive technology and the availability of reproductive drugs can help women conceive, however, this technology is less likely to face problems with the uterine lining thin and inadequate. In some cases, can only lead to miscarriage because your uterus is less able to support the growth and development of the fetus.

Observing a healthy diet to improve your weight level is important to increase the chances of a woman getting pregnant. Maintaining a healthy weight level, significantly reduce the risk of pre-term birth and low birth weight. Maintaining a health body size and weight, give your child a chance to have the best of health.

It is believed that women are required to reach certain levels of critical mass in order to get pregnant. Sufficient amount of fat in the body can trigger the menarche which may indicate that the body is ready for pregnancy. The amount of fat in the body is one of the most important factors that determine the ability of the body to support the growth of the fetus.

On the other hand, being overweight affects ovulation, which in turn, can also affect fertility. Thicker, overweight women have extra fat tissue that can lead to excessive production of estrogen. Increased production of estrogen can cause a hormonal imbalance that can adversely affect the process of ovulation.

Overweight women have high levels of fat cells produce estrogen, which triggers the pituitary gland to prevent the production of a follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). These hormones are responsible for the future of ovulation. In addition, overweight level is associated with conditions of insulin resistance and polycystic ovary syndrome that can cause fertility problems later.

Find a medical clinic for convenience

Getting sick is never convenient. It happens usually when you need to work longer hours, have all children at home, or when clinics are open. This can be a nuisance, but if you have a medical clinic nearby, can solve your problems. As you look for one near you, look for one that offers the services for which you have more often a necessity.

Most of your doctor visits are probably for your children, then it would be useful to find a doctor that has a pediatrician that is available. Although a regular easily could help your child, a pediatrician will know more precisely what your child needs, and will be better able to deal with children.

Another attribute to look for in a medical clinic is the place. Yes, you want near you if possible, but if you live in an area that you cannot find anything for sure so you may want to find one near you that is outside of that area. Medical records could end up being a catch-all for drug addicts and those who might have problems that you might wish to have children. Find a medical clinic in a pretty nice location is important.

The staff is also an important consideration. Should be well trained and experienced. They should have doctors or nurses are available to see patients.

Regarding the treatments, you want to move to a location that has a laboratory where you or your children that you could have an infection or need a blood draw for some other reason. Should have x-ray capability and maybe even the ability to ACT. It is useful if they offer services such as vaccinations and physicals for school and work as well.

One of the many advantages of going to a medical clinic’s operating hours. Make sure that what is at the top is open until late in the evening. Find one that is open even on weekends is very useful as well. First aid is always available, but all problems do not require a visit there.

As can be seen in some clinics, make sure you also note the Office cleaning and the friendliness of the people on staff as a receptionist. That is an important part of any activity that should not be ignored. If you do not have started researching to find clinics in your area, start today. You will not regret ever being prepared.

Feel sleepy when driving? Drivers who fall asleep cause 1/5 incidents-help reduce this

According to statistics, up to 20% of the motorist accidents are caused by drivers who suddenly fall asleep while driving. Each year, approximately 100,000 vehicle accidents are mentioned to drivers falling asleep at the wheel actually. Driving from 2 to 7 increases the risk of a driver for accidents. What are the causes behind this phenomenon?

Apart from possible accidents that pilots had to deal with during the duty, they also have to deal with the alarming health impairment of their work. Through time, the drivers are put at greater risk of suffering from many life-threatening diseases, including diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Recent research shows that a large proportion of the motor accidents recorded are caused by excessive daytime sleepiness and other sleep-related disorders.

Sleep disorders
A group of conditions that are mainly characterized by disturbances in quality, time and amount of sleep a person to sleep. When treated, the result is normally to daytime sleepiness and can dramatically affect the quality, overall health and safety of patients. In addition to daytime sleepiness, common symptoms of sleep disorders include increased movement during sleep, irregular breathing, abnormal sleep behavior and difficulty sleeping.

The most common forms of sleep disorders including narcolepsy, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, obstructive sleep apnea, the disorder behavior of rapid eye movement, hypopnea syndrome, periodic limb movement, delayed sleep phase syndrome, night terrors, sleep terror disorder, pavor nocturnus and bruxism.

Causes of drowsy driving
According to a study conducted in Sweden, sleep disorders are very common for professional drivers. Results of the study with 116 participants showed that 23 percent are experiencing pronounced diurnal somnolence, 29% have restless leg, 19% are diagnosed with sleep apnea and 28% of them are having trouble falling asleep.

Because of their irregular working hours that prevents them from getting an adequate amount of sleep regularly, professional drivers are at greater risk of developing sleep disorders like sleep apnea and insomnia. This increases the risk of suffering major accidents that can cause injury and even death.

There are certainly a lot of factors that can contribute to excessive sleepiness while driving. These factors include the breakdown in circadian rhythm, sleep disruption, lack or loss of sleep, chronic sleep debt, fragmented sleep, undiagnosed sleep disorders, intake of sedatives medicines and alcohol consumption.

Compared to ordinary drivers, long-distance drivers, professional drivers, shift workers and those who have been diagnosed with sleep disorders are at a higher risk of suffering from fatigue-related accidents.

When taking a rest drivers?
Professional drivers are responsible for life. Professional help is a job that requires optimal concentration all the time. When the drivers are not always adequate amount of sleep regularly, their readiness and response time are greatly affected. In fact, accidents can occur.

When drivers should stop and take a break?
-When blinking very often

-When you have heavy eyelids

-When you have difficulty focusing or remembering

-If you’re daydreaming and yawning repeatedly

-If you are drifting from the proper lane or tailgaiting

-If you feel irritable all the time

-If you feel restless

Modern lifestyle with work related factors such as shift work are seen as major contributors to disorders that are experiencing professional drivers. Alcohol intake and too little sleep actually provide the same effect as drivers. The negative impact of these unhealthy lifestyles includes slow reaction time, poor coordination, be aggressive or Moody, reduced alertness and impaired vision and judgment.

What are the benefits of getting an adequate amount of sleep regularly
Sleep is a natural process that is very beneficial to the body. Actually lowers a person’s susceptibility to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other diseases. It helps people with depression and helps maintain good health.

Medical alert systems help to reduce the high costs of elder care

With the high costs of healthcare, rehabilitation centers, medicines, medical equipment and home doctor visits, there is usually little money left. Greater care is very expensive and the costs just keep going up. Sometimes it becomes impossible to pay for most things need with many external costs burdening a person. A medical alarm system can greatly reduce the high costs of senior care. Light alarm systems, simple and inexpensive, can reduce the need for medical care and expensive doctor visits.

It may be hard to believe that a simple service at home as a medical alert system can help reduce the cost of senior care so much. However, there are many ways in which medical alert systems can act as a sort of replacement for certain types of care. Let’s take a look at some of the average costs of senior health and as a medical alert system can help reduce overall costs.

Be sure to keep in mind that using a medical alert system is generally free and carries only a monthly monitoring fee ranging from about $ 17.95-$ 24.95. Each year, our medical alert system advertised will cost no more than $ 215.40. Hopefully this will help you more easily put its cost prospectively compared to any other expensive expenditure senior care.

Home health
Home health care can be incredibly expensive, especially if the insurance does not cover or covers only a small part. Most home health nurses make upwards of $ 30 per hour. This means that it costs more for a nurse monitor someone for an hour, how much does it cost for a whole month of alarm system service doctors. Of course, a device can never replace a trained medical professional, but many times home health nurses are used to working at home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This can be excessive and unnecessary for some patients. Sometimes having a nurse or loved checking in regularly is sufficient. However, it may seem daunting to leave a loved one all by yourself for many hours a day in order to have a family member or home health nurse stay with the patient seems to be the one and only option. $ 30 For 24 hours a day, every day half an hour will cost $ 720. For the moment, 7 days a week is over, the cost of a home health nurse became $ 5,040. And at the end of a month of 30 days, it will cost you $ 21,600. For some people, this is an annual salary. And if the insurance does not cover the treatment, this could all be out of pocket, which for many people is completely out of reach. Also keep in mind that this is just the cost of a nurse (and is even a conservative estimate.) When you use a home health agency, as many people find a home health nurse, actually can cost twice as much as what the agency pays home health nurse is only part of the cost through the patient.

With a medical alert system cost as little as $ 24.95 per month, replacing completely the domestic health care with a medical alert system could reduce the cost by $ 21,570. Of course, it is usually not feasible to cut home health fully. If home health were provided in Haus for a typical work week of 40 hours, would bring the cost to $ 21,600 to $ 4,800 per month, a savings of $ 16,800. With the help of a medical alert system during the hours that a nurse is not in home health care, people are able to exchange a bill of $ 16,800 for an invoice of $ 24.95-$ 17.95.

Expensive doctor and hospital visits
Not to see a doctor or go to a hospital as a senior with medical problems is not advisable. However, the amount of times that you need to see a doctor or visit a hospital can be greatly reduced by having a medical alarm system in your home. When a medical alert system is used in your home, personal physician is able to reach more quickly on a person in need. This greatly reduces the chances of more serious injuries and health problems. Then, there will be fewer follow-up doctor visits or trips to the hospital because it is likely that medical emergencies will be much less disastrous.

Assistive Technology explained

Assistive technologies, also known as adaptive technology includes devices or equipment to maintain, increase or improve skills of persons with disabilities. It is important to realize that assistive technology is not just computer programs or electronic devices. Since many people think of when thinking about computer technology, this is a common mistake. Assistive technologies need not be high-tech, but should serve the purpose of “service” and can include anything from a stick you use to reach something of a Walker or a wheelchair or more complex elements such as environmental audits or adapted vehicles.

This means that assistive technology existed the first homo sapiens picked up a branch to help himself on uneven terrain. Sophisticated forms of assistive technology date back for centuries as well as the 6th century saw a picture of a wheelchair is carved in stone on a sarcophagus. Today, assistive technologies are available to support many common disabilities. For example, assistive technology can:

or provide help with communication, such as speech, writing and typing aids

or help people with access to a computer with the standard mouse and keyboard. They include software programs such as a screen reader or screen keyboard and hardware, such as a mouse operation.

or provide exercises that stimulate the train and evaluate the cognitive functioning.

or assist with daily life as cooking, dressing room, bathroom, bathing, eating

or provide assistance with Visual or auditory limitation how blink light system for the doorbell, hearing aids, closed caption decoders for TV.

or provide assistance with mobility, such as wheelchairs, walkers and canes.

or help with disabled or missing limbs as artificial limbs, braces, supports

or Enable disabled individuals to take part in sports or recreational activities.

or support the muscular-skeletal systems and maintain positions needed to perform the desired task, such as moulded seats, lumbar support and changes to wheelchairs would fall into this category.

telephones or improve access to materials such as Braille devices and translators and large print button.

If you are a person with a disability or know a disabled person, maybe you have some thoughts on assistive technology. Perhaps you know of a cool product disability or do you have any idea on what would like to see.

Healthy longevity is the greatest wealth

As the dark storm clouds gathering upset before a violent summer storm and the fall of ice pellets and sudden gusts of wind causes those who live in tornado alley than turn anxious gaze skyward, so health authorities are also worried the world news scan to see if the much-talked about Asian bird flu that degraded a world wide pandemic has infected another man.

Memories of the horrors of the black death that wiped out millions of people in the middle ages and smallpox that devastated more than 1 million native Americans give rise to the fear that might be about to happen again!In fact the health officials are warning that the next pandemic is not a matter of if but when it happens!

Now it has been reported that at least two people in Turkey were infected with bird flu, as it is now called. The fear is that with each new human infestation increases the likelihood that avian influenza could mutate into a virus can spread from human to human. If this happens a pademic of epic proportions could hearld the collaspe much of civilization as we know it!

Around the world Governments are scrambling to develop a vaccine against this deadly virus. You can win the race in time to protect humanity from this pandemic threathening?! In addition to not having a vaccine ready, the problem is compounded by the fact that antibiotics are no longer effective due to use.

However, what may prove to be one of the most timely miracles of all time is the findings of nobel prize winners and other health research scientists who can save the day.Just as there is a race to come up with a vaccine to immunize us against bird flu in Asia, so there’s a rush to get these new discoveries to the masses!

Such a discovery is done through the discovery of what has been called the second code. The first code is the code of DNA. Health researcher, Dr. Rath, postulated “That once the body stores amino acids for 1.1 pounds of 150 kg of body weight that no disease will beable to spread through the body” calls it a Teflon shield for cells.

A second discovery has to do with how the virus spread throughout the body. A virus like the flu should get into any cell of the body using an enzyme that temporaily dissolves the cell wall. Once inside the cell the virus alters the DNA or cellular code and feeds on nutrients of the cell causing cell death.During his stay inside the cell, it reproduces itself.

After using cell nutrients causing the death of the cell the virus multiplied and then leave the cell and repeats the process so invade nearby cells, multiplying and destroying the cells as they spread throughout the body.

Another timely discovery that was found a way for the body to neutralize the virus uses enzyme dissolution to dissolve the cell wall to gain entry.Unable to gain entrance to one person may not be infected! So, this discovery hearlds paradign shift away from thinking in terms of development of vaccines or antibiotics in ways allowing the body to neutralize the methods used by the invading virus from infecting the body.This new paradigm should not be seen as a threat to the development of new vaccines and antibiotics, but as a weapon against a pandemic or gathering.

So now we have a new weapon to protect ourselves from these dreaded diseases and avert any pandemic is approaching! We are not left depending on the development of a new vaccine or antibiotic to win the race against a pandemic meeting a clear and present danger!

By using some form based on recent findings from nobel prize winners it is now possible to provide the body with a teflon as a shield for our cells. Just like teflon prevents food from sticking to our kitchen ware and heat from damaging engine parts, so too can form thse shield our cells from invading viruses.

This teflon shield can offer hope that the long-sought after dream of freeing mankind from dreaded diseases can be realized not only atlast reliance on new vaccines for many diseases imunize us, nor to discover the most powerful antibiotics or other drugs, but merely to shield our cells from home invaders!

The danger here is that the medical establishment can preceive these new developments as a threat to the American medical establishment with the guise of public safety squelch this information. This wouldn’t be the first time that they have done.

How to prepare children for Ear surgery

If you have a child who needs surgery microtia, you must take some steps to prepare him or her. If he or she is still a baby or a child, there may not be much you can do in terms of preparation for treatment. But older children who understand more can be nervous and want to feel assured ahead of time. Consider some ways to do it.

First should speak with your pediatrician to determine how to prepare your family for treatment. If you have other children, you probably will want to know a little bit what’s going to happen, too. If the pediatrician is experienced in treating children and explain difficult concepts in a simple way, you should ask him or her to talk to your children. Most doctors are happy to explain the basics of microtia surgery so their patients and their families understand everything. This can help you and your family be assured that everything is going well.

If your child is still nervous after obtaining an explanation, make sure you have made clear you are happy to answer any questions. Many children need extra reassurance so they need to feel comfortable asking you questions you may have, and probably you don’t need to be a doctor to respond to them. Your child probably wants to know if it will hurt the treatment and how long it will take to recover. He or she may also want to know what to expect next, such as the ears are similar. That’s why you might consider looking at before and after photos with him or her to show you what to expect.

You can also talk about what surgery microtia will do for your son or daughter. Once he or she is aware of the benefits, probably will be a change in attitude. Some guys who understand what the operation can also be excited for it so they can see the results. If you want to increase the excitement, you can make plans to do something fun for a couple of weeks after the operation. For example, you can plan a trip to a theme park so all your family has something fun to focus on once the ear surgery.

Your child’s doctor may be able to give you more advice depending on your circumstances. Appropriate suggestions for preparation depend on the age and temperament of each child. As long as you’re aware of all the feelings that your child might have regarding the impending operation, should be able to help him or her feel more relaxed as possible before getting the microtia surgery.

Reasons to have ear surgery for a child with Microtia

If your child has ear, he or she may need ear surgery. Although the hearing is not affected and seems to be just an aesthetic problem, they can find the best get an operation anyway. Learn why some kids with mild cases may find this beneficial.

Bullying at school is the main problem that many parents worry when they notice anomalies in the appearance of their baby’s ears. Even babies and children with this problem may cause people do double takes or stop and ask what causes. While some people and their parents are able to take this step, many children develop insecurities about it from a young age. It doesn’t tend to get better at school, since children may be lacking in tact and even downright mean about the differences. If you are worried about your child’s fun facts or simply stand out in a negative way, you may choose to plan for ear surgery before he or she enters the school. In fact, it is usually recommended that kids get this done before they reach the age of eight or so.

One of the reasons for the treatment that is sometimes not considered is the fact that hats and headbands may not fit properly when the ears are malformed or barely there. Young patients with microtia may be shocked to realize that not wearing hats with their favorite teams or sports figures. Bands and other accessories depending on the ears to stand properly can also be out of the question. These details can be missed by adults, but for many children, are a big problem. If your child expresses concerns to you on this, you might want to consider.

Even more important is the fact that the glasses may not fit right. If it turns out your child has difficulty seeing, you may have a hard time keeping glasses on her face. Contact lenses are usually not recommended for young children, nor is the laser eye surgery. This means that the glasses may be the only option, and this is not convenient for children whose ears are not the normal shape or size. Even though vista is not a problem, children with microtia may also have trouble wearing sunglasses, that can be disappointing.

Clearly there are a few reasons to consider ear surgery for children whose hearing is not impaired. You might think there are important reasons, but could be a great deal for many guys. Therefore, make sure that you and your family have looked on all the details before making a decision on whether to get treatment.

3 Souvenirs from my trip to Oz

I am crazy about Dr. Mehmet Oz! A beautiful heart surgeon, author, speaker and star of his own TV show, has become the gold standard for accurate, reliable advice from the medical world.

Dr. Oz has been one of the medical experts who spoke at the Symposium integrative health earlier this month. Here are some nuggets of wisdom that he shared, along with some ways that it would be advisable to integrate his advice the wellbeing goals.

1) Remember your resistance level at the age of 17 years?

Dr. Oz says it should be the same when you’re level 65! Really? Although you may have less strength as you age, essentially extends your “lifetime warranty” how to keep your physical activity. What eventually leads to poor health is fragile, the inability to recover. What robs us of such resilience? Sedentary lifestyle and lack of muscle mass (especially for women to estrogen declining years). But the exercise helps reverse the loss.

The Take-away

“Exercise” doesn’t mean the continuous cardio intensity that was popular in the past. If you don’t want to run the marathon addition, well … just keep moving! Strength training and interval training (you just accelerate one of 10 minutes) and yoga are preferable. That is feasible-for life.

Maybe it’s not ability, but your mind block that is standing in your way, the thought that says “I’m too old” or “it’s too late” or “that’s impossible”. Not at all-just to know where to start. Endurance is not immediate; accumulates over time. That’s what we’re looking for.

I saw this in my practice. We are far more capable than we think often, and feel the pride and energy client entries when you share their latest efforts to move to the next level.

2) Without a good night’s sleep, expect problems.

During sleep at night time, the body Restore depleted function and repair everyday wear. Take away that sleep quality, and your body craves sweets to keep the energy report. A sleep-deprived body also stores extra fat and produces hormones that make you feel hungrier. Lack of sleep increases the risk of heart disease and immune challenges. There’s no way around it: sleep is essential.

The Take-away

Good sleep is refreshing, and it also helps your body maintain a healthy weight. Give yourself optimum conditions of sleep by adopting some suggestions of sleep Dr. Oz Toolkit:

-Dim lights at the beginning to imitate the sunset and encourage your body’s natural release of melatonin.

-Wear loose clothing.

-Reduce the ambient noise.

-Keep the temperature around 68F.

3) If you slip, go now!

We will slip up; that is human. The trick is to not give up. If your goal is to exercise, a new eating plan or a business strategy, the difficulties are inevitable but not insurmountable. Recognize and return immediately on your floor.

The Take-away

Think of your plan as a GPS. Make a wrong turn? Notice the entry does not blame for your mistake. Rather, recalibrate, or provides an alternative route. You may need to make a u-turn, but soon you are still on your way. No judgment-only useful guidance.

Reading these sensible tips, seems to find well-being should be simple. Change is possible, when you have a plan that works for you. There is something in the tips above you can adopt now? Commit to it. Although it is a small step, it is a step in the right direction.
