Title:
Casino et Football Fsont ils Bon Ménage

Summary:
Au mois d'Aout, les Casinos en ligne avaient le vent en poupe au sein des Clubs de Foot. On assistait alors à une ère des nouveaux pris! L'euphorie des Casinos en ligne comme sponsor de clubs!


Keywords:
football,sponsoring,actualites,sports,affaires,casino en ligne,france,games,recreation,888


Article Body:
En effet, Casino 888.com sponsorisait le FC Toulouse et PartyGaming le FNCA de Nantes! Oui mais voila, c'était sans compter sur la Ligue Professionnelle de Football.

Dimanche dernier, sur les maillots du FC Toulouse, on retrouvait bien les couleurs du casino mais les signes ???.com. Qu'est ce donc ???.com me direz-vous. Il s'agit tout simplement de son sponsor Casino 888.com.

Pourquoi?

Alors que les joueurs ont pour obligation de porter les couleurs et le nom du casino, la Ligue professionnelle a, quant à elle, décidée d'exclure les casinos de la publicité et du sponsoring. D'où l'omission. Or, tout le monde l'aura compris le sigle ??? faisait bien référence au casino sponsor de l'équipe.

La Ligue explique son refus. Du fait de l'arrestation de certains géants de casinos en ligne depuis le mois de septembre, dont le derneir en date de Bwin arreté en France, la ligue se voit le droit d'interdire la publicité, le sponsoring pour les paris en ligne.

Samedi, une autre équipe, la FC Monaco a rencontré le même problème que le FC Toulouse lors de son match face au Mans. Un représentant de l'équipe explique que, sans cette alternative, le coup d'envoi du match n'aurait pu être donné.

On se souvient encore des paroles de Jean-Luc Gripond, vice-président du club nantais, "le FCNA a décidé de s'associer à un nouveau sponsor disposant: "premièrement une dimension internationale, et notre football a besoin de partenaires de cette dimension, deuxièmement un lien avec les nouvelles technologies, ce qui représente pour nous le futur".

Qu'en est il aujourd'hui?

Un enquête a été menée ( voir notre article Bonnes Nouvelles pour les Casinos en Ligne).
Les paris sont monopole d'état en France et on pourrait penser que l'arrestation des cadres de BWin s'est opérée au bénéfice de la Française des jeux. Aussi, peu de temps après, la Commission européenne a décidé de s'intéresser de plus près à la question du monopole d'État pour les paris et les jeux. La volonté de la commission est clairement affichée, soit les États membres les considèrent néfastes pour leurs ressortissants et interdisent totalement les jeux en ligne, soit ils les autorisent et permettent aux sociétés comme 888.com d'offrir leurs services sur le marché.

title:Catching a Killer - New Steps Taken in Treating Mesothelioma

There’s a silent killer out there. It creeps up on its victims, attacks them quietly and unsuspectingly, and initiates a wound that develops over many years before it eventually causes pain. This unstoppable murderer is known as mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is a malignant tumor that develops on the mesothelial cells of either the lungs, heart or abdominal organs, and plagues those who have been exposed to asbestos for a prolonged period of time. Many who fall victim to this disease are people who have worked in specific trades or fields prior to the 1970s, such as blacksmiths, electricians, millwrights, and oil refinery workers.
Since it can take up to forty years for symptoms to surface, mesothelioma-related deaths are higher than ever in the 21st century. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that 1,493 people died from asbestos in 2000, compared to 77 people in 1968.
Mesothelioma treatment methods differ depending on the stage of the cancer upon detection, as well as the patient’s age and personal choice of treatment. The four distinct stages of the disease are a factor in determining the type of mesothelioma treatment that can be carried out. The first stage is when the tumor has had limited growth on the pleural lining (the lining of the lungs). At this stage, an attempt can be made to surgically remove the entire tumor. However, if the tumor is detected at a later stage when it has invaded surrounding areas, it is considered incurable.
Traditionally, the later stages of mesothelioma have been treated with either chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill cancer cells while radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.
Although mesothelioma treatment methods have been proven to prolong patients’ lives, they cannot cure the disease. Ongoing clinical trials are dedicated to overcoming this debilitating illness. Current experimental treatments include the following:
Drug Therapy: A drug called Alimta, developed by Eli Lilly, has been shown to significantly increase the life expectancy of patients and decrease symptoms of the disease. It is the only chemotherapy drug to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma.
Gene Therapy: This mesothelioma treatment is currently in the experimental stages. The process involves inserting a "suicide gene" directly into the tumor. This gene makes the cells sensitive to a normally ineffective drug called glanciclovir which destroys all the cancer cells and leaves the healthy cells unharmed.
Photodynamic Therapy: Still in its experimental stage, photodynamic therapy uses light to kill cancerous cells. The patient first receives a photosensitizer that only collects in cancerous cells. Fiberoptic cables are then placed in the body in order to focus the right frequency of light on the tumor. The photosensitizer is then caused to produce a toxic oxygen molecule that kills the cancer cell.
Immunotherapy: Also referred to as biological therapy, this mesothelioma treatment uses the body's personal immune system to defend itself against mesothelioma. It has been discovered that the immune system is capable of deciphering healthy cells from cancerous cells, and can thus eradicate those cells that cause cancer.
While treatment methods are still in the developmental or experimental stages, there is hope that one day all mesothelioma victims will be freed from the murderous hands of this fearsome disease.

Causes and Cures for Premature Ejaculation

Summary:
The notion “premature ejaculation” can be interpreted in many ways, because it’s relative. Taking place within minutes does not cause anything tie-up in a relationship as long as the partner herself had orgasm too, but an ejaculation can be premature even after a long lasting sex, if her orgasm occurs later.

Article Body:
The notion “premature ejaculation” can be interpreted in many ways, because it’s relative. Taking place within minutes does not cause anything tie-up in a relationship as long as the partner herself had orgasm too, but an ejaculation can be premature even after a long lasting sex, if her orgasm occurs later.

A friend of mine said so rightly once: expectations concerning a men’s performance in bed, can be compared to a dinner of a couple, which becomes perfect if they finish their meat simultaneously, they digest it together and also they use toilet in the same time.

Putting the joke away, premature ejaculation is being indeed around. The unpleasant form of it is the ejaculation “ante portas” (ejaculation before the gate), when ejaculation occurs before penetration.

Premature ejaculation, when the ejaculation comes quickly (within seconds or minutes) can be categorized in two types: the originally existing and the subsequently formed one.

To understand the process we have to know that ejaculation can happen as a result of stimulation of the glans (penis head), either without erection or with semi-erection, if sexual excitement becomes too strong.

The subsequently formed premature ejaculation is frequently associated with evolving erectile dysfunction.
In this case the patient concentrates to maintain it’s erection, sexual excitement becomes stronger, the body becomes "over stimulated" and all these leads to premature ejaculation.


Possible causes:
- Psychic causes
- Innervation disorder (increased state of excitement)
- Inflammations (prostate, genitals)

How to cure premature ejaculation?

If we oppose inflammatory symptoms, the ejaculation will return to normal after proper medical treatment.

If the cause is the above-mentioned evolving impotence, we have to treat the erectile dysfunction, which nowadays is perfectly remediable.

More difficult is to cure the originally existing premature ejaculation because in this case the nervous system is need to be adjusted; fortunately more opportunities are arising this time too.

One of these is the reduction of the stimulus using condoms, anesthetic gels or sprays. The last two options are contraindicated, because using these kinds of products both male and female sex organs, after contact becomes insensitive as well, leading to an un-enjoyable bed exercise.

There are medicines used in minor depression for rising the patient’s moral, which has few side effects, and usually one of these is the delayed ejaculation.

Onto lengthening sexual intercourse and curing premature ejaculation Last Longer sex pills were proved well suitable.

There are several acne care treatment methods that work well and are not very time consuming or expensive. Such techniques would be the treatment with alpha hydroxy acid or several forms of chemical peels that can do wonders for zit treatments. These methods of getting rid of acne are proven and effective and many cases of patients suffering from aggravated pimple irritation found these to be the perfect acne treatment. In the following article we will look closely at the above-mentioned acne care treatment methods and help you decide which technique will work best for your pimple problems.
Acne Care Treatment
The causes of acne are tied to the changes that happen when a child passes from infancy to puberty. Many persons still believe that acne is caused by dirty skin. The truth is, instead, is that to only wash the skin does not make acne disappear, nor does it prevent it. Adult acne treatment methods works just like those addressed to other age groups. To wash the skin, however, helps to remove the excess of sebum and the dead cells of the skin, and adults should be aware of this as well. Many persons use every type of product, including alcoholic detergents and exfoliant creams, often irritating the skin more than clearing it! Adult acne treatment approaches should also consider the social and psychological effects of adult acne. To wash the face two times a day, in a delicate way with water and a delicate detergent, is the best choice. However, acne is caused from a complex array of biological factors that cannot be eliminated just by washing. For this reason, it is necessary to begin a serious adult acne treatment focused on the problem of acne.
Adult acne treatment – myths and facts
In some cases, acne also persists in the adult age. This type of acne, generally, hits the skin of the face, but also the one of the body, and men are more exposed then women. Adult acne treatment for women takes into account the fact that the appearance of this type of acne is parallel to the menstrual cycle. In other cases, the acne is introduced randomly in the adult age: this type of acne plagues men and women alike. Acne is not caused by food, but some food items do have the potential to irritate the skin. To follow a tight diet will not recover your skin. While some think that their problem of acne is aggravated from the foods they consume (like the chocolate, drinks, fat oysters and foods), there are no scientific tests that demonstrate this being true. However it is not a mistake to avoid the fatter foods, but a focused and well-applied adult acne treatment is also necessary in order to get rid of this annoying condition. There are several ways to eliminate zits in adulthood. The most successful acne treatment methods may include acne blemish laser treatment, acne rosacea treatment, laser acne treatment. Consult with your dermatologist in order to determine which adult acne removal treatment will work best for you.
Treatment – Alpha hydroxy acid
Also known in the medical community as ascorbic acid, this technique mainly focuses on improving the levels of oil in the skin. It actually reduces the oil amount produced by the skin, thus diminishing the chances of acne eruptions. Alpha hydroxy acid also reduces the number of dead cells in the skin so your face looks healthier and with less irritation. This particular acne care treatment is effective when used in the early or mid stages of the problem, but it also used in severe acne treatment. The acid is found in several acne treatment drugs and ointments
Chemical peels acne treatment
In most cases, chemical peel treatments are used to remove lines under the eyes and around the mouth, as well as, sun-damaged skin, mild scarring, age spots and other skin problems. Acne treatments may include this method in which the dermatologist applies a certain chemical substance to the skin. The targeted spot blisters and can be peeled off. This method of acne care treatment is effective mostly for removing scars, especially in the facial area. The treatment is accompanies by some heat and stinging sensation, a fact that most patients found acceptable given the efficiency of the acne treatment.
Acne care treatment final remarks
There are several other methods for curing acne, such as home remedies or laser treatment. In order to select the best treatment for your pimple and zits you should consult with your doctor or dermatologist. For more acne information please visit: www.acnexpert.com.

Causes for Obesity

Too much Calories! Consumption of more calories than are burned through work, exercise, and other activities will lead to overweight and obesity. In the late 1990s, Americans ate about 340 more calories per day than they did in the mid-1980s, and about 500 more calories per day than in the 1950s. The extra food was often some kind of refined carbohydrate combined with fat, saturated fat in the unhealthiest cases.

Medical problems. Some individuals are obese because of biological problems such as malfunctioning thyroid or pituitary glands. Others may have physical problems or disabilities that severely limit or prohibit exercise, strenuous work, and other physical activity.

Too much stress. New research suggests that there is a biological link between stress and the drive to eat. Comfort foods high in sugar, fat, and calories, seem to calm the body's response to chronic stress. In addition, hormones produced when one is under stress encourage the formation of fat cells. In developed countries, life tends to be competitive, fast paced, demanding, and stressful. There may be a link between so-called modern life and increasing rates of overeating, overweight, and obesity.

Is there a Permanent Solution to Obesity?

Lucky for us all, Yes, there is a permanent solution to obesity! This permanent solution is known as the Gastric Bypass Surgery. This surgery must be performed by a certified doctor. Thousands of obese people has permanently lost tens of kilos with this fool proof method. We urge you to find out more about Gastric Bypass Surgery as the permanent solution to obesity! It works.

Low back pain is a quite common phenomenon in the humans and is generally experienced by all at some or the other point in their lives. The severity of the pain is often unrelated to the injury that has caused it. While a simple strain in the back can cause unbearable pain, a displaced disk may turn out to be quite painless.
Low back pain is often a result of a wrong posture or displaced or strained back muscle. Irritation of the large nerve roots that go to our legs and our arms, a strain in the smaller nerves or an injury in any of the bones, ligaments or joints may also result in pain in the lower portion of our back.
Many a times, one can experience low back pain without any injury or known anatomical cause. However, back pain can be largely linked to a strain in any of the muscles or a specific condition such as degenerative disc disease or a herniated disc.
Most of the times, one can get rid of the low back pain by using conservative treatments, such as the application of ointments, physical therapy or oral medications. However, cure of certain back low pains may require surgery. One should seek proper medical treatment if the back pain continues for a long time, and is severe and accompanied by sudden bladder or bowel incontinence or progressive weakness in legs. Persons, who have suffered from fever, cold, trauma or undergone sudden weight loss, should seek proper medical attention for the cure of their low back pain.

Keywords:
gall bladder, gall bladder symptoms, gall bladder diet


Article Body:
The gall bladder is a small organ that is situated in the vicinity of the liver. The liver produces bile, a substance that has a very important role in the digestion of fat. The gall bladder stores the bile produced by the liver and expels it inside the small intestine when the substance is required in the digestion of foods containing fat.

Many people suffer from gall bladder disease these days. The disease has a high incidence in elderly people and statistics indicate that around 15 percent of people with gall bladder disease have ages over 50. Gall bladder disease mostly occurs in women, as estrogen facilitates the development of the illness. Children and teenagers rarely develop gall bladder disease and young patients usually suffer from milder forms of the disorder. Gall bladder disease has a high incidence in overweight people, people with internal disorders (gastro-intestinal problems) and people with high blood cholesterol levels.

In the majority of cases, gall bladder disease is caused by gallstones. Gallstones are formed due to the excess of cholesterol in the bile or incomplete emptying of the gall bladder. Sometimes, gallstones are formed when the gall bladder removes too much water from the stored bile. Gallstones are solid formations that accumulate inside the gall bladder, blocking the access of the bile. The diseased gall bladder can’t sustain its normal activity and the process of digestion is perturbed.

Gall bladder disease can usually be overcome through diet and medical treatments. However, in serious forms of the disease, doctors recommend the removal of the diseased gall bladder through the means of surgical intervention. Gall bladder disease can be either chronic (chronic cholecystitis or billary colic) or acute (acute cholecystitis). Chronic cholecystitis is less serious and generates milder symptoms, while acute cholecystitis may in some cases require surgery.

The gall bladder is not considered to be a vital organ and if it is removed, the body can still sustain its normal activity. However, in the absence of the gall bladder, the liver has to produce more quantities of bile whenever food that contains fat enters the small intestine. Without a gall bladder, food digestion and absorption can sometimes be affected. People who had their gall bladder surgically removed need to respect a low-fat diet and limit the amount of food consumed during their meals. With appropriate medical treatment and good diet, the body will begin to cope with the absence of the gall bladder.

There are two common medical procedures used in gall bladder surgery: open surgery (cholecystectomy) and laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopic cholecystectomy). Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is usually preferred by both patients and surgeons, as the surgical intervention involves less risk and leaves less pronounced scars. This form of surgery is performed with the aid of a laparoscope, a tube-shaped medical instrument that has a camera attached to it. By using a laparoscope, the surgery requires smaller incisions and patients who suffer such surgical interventions recover rapidly. There are many effective means of dealing with gall bladder disease and it is important to see a doctor if you suffer from gall bladder inappropriate activity. Left untreated, gall bladder disease can aggravate and lead to complications.

What Causes Bad Breath:
Three Leading Factors Did you know:
1. Medications (including allergy medications) cause bad breath
2. Alcoholic beverages cause bad breath
3. Mouthwash with alcohol causes bad breath
4. Smoking causes bad breath
5. Dry mouth causes bad breath
The fact is that everyday common over-the-counter hygiene products, beverages an medications can be the "mysterious" cause of your bad breath! Medications and alcohol dry out the mouth, creating less saliva which leads to less oxygen in the mouth. This combination creates the perfect breeding ground for the Anaerobic Sulfur-Producing Bacteria that cause bad breath. In short simple terms, oral bacteria cause bad breath. Think of your breath in the morning, probably not top-notch. At night your mouth is at rest and drier than in waking hours, so bacteria grow. Upon waking you’re greeted with “morning breath.” Likewise, when you are sick and congested, possibly breathing out of your mouth, you probably noticed your breath smells. This is caused by dry mouth which creates bacteria which causes bad breath.
How do I Avoid the Bacteria That Causes Bad Breath?
Bad breath is caused by excessive bacteria in the mouth. Scientific study and clinical research on bacteria has helped experts discover why bacteria causes bad breath and how to best eliminate it. Surprisingly, those commercials and ads that tell us to pop a mint or use a mouth wash to deal with bad breath are always accurate. In fact many of the mints and washes people use to combat bad breath, actually cause bad breath or make it worse. How so? The bacteria that cause bad breath live and breed beneath the tongue’s surface, on the tonsils and in the throat, not on the surface where it can be scraped or brushed off or dissolved with a wash or mint. Instead of getting rid of bad breath, many of these products contain alcohol which dries out the mouth creating a more favorable environment for these odorous bacteria to grow.
Does Food Cause Bad Breath?
You bet your garlic breadsticks they do. Certain foods like garlic and onions can cause bad breath because they contain the same compounds, previously discussed, that create bad breath. If you regularly consume these foods, it can create higher amounts of bacteria and lead to halitosis. The catch is that the Anaerobic Sulfur-Producing Bacteria that can cause bad breath are in everyone’s mouth, because they are needed to assist in breaking down proteins in certain foods. Researchers are still searching for a reason why some people are prone to develop more of the beneficial bacteria, which in bulk are no longer beneficial because they cause bad breath.
The Secret to Getting Rid of Bad Breath (halitosis) is...
To truly eliminate the cause of bad breath you must eliminate the odorous bacteria by converting them to non-odorous volatile sulfur compounds. Okay, sounds complicated, right? In other words, make sure you are using the right type of bad breath eliminator to do the job for you. This cannot be done with mouthwashes or mints. These give your mouth a strong taste, which then leads you to believe if your mouth tastes "medicated" or minty, then your breath must smell good.

Causes of Bad Breath: What Are They?

Summary:
There are so many causes of bad breath. We uncover what some of those causes of bad breath are and how to stop them in their tracks.


Keywords:
cause of bad breath


Article Body:
There are many factors that could be the causes of bad breath, and many of the factors that could be causes of bad breath can be dealt with quickly and easily using simple techniques. In fact the causes of bad breath are so well documented that it is easy to find the factors which are the cause of bad breath for you.

So what are the causes of bad breath exactly?

Bad breath, which is usually halitosis, is caused by VSCs (Volatile Sulphur Compounds) in the mouth, these are the most common of the causes of bad breath. But what are they, anyway?

Bacteria in your throat and mouth help to break down certain proteins. When some Amino acids which have a lot of Sulphur inside, start to get broken down and then produce various foul smelling compounds from the back of the mouth and throat.

There is a common misconception that bad breath can come from your stomach, and although it may feel like that sometimes, the smeel comes from the compounds produced your throat and mouth. Some foods however after they have been consumed encourage the production of certain chemicals that are then discharged via the lungs. So that extra helping of deep-fried onion rings is actually making a smell through your lungs.

So how can we avoid these great causes of bad breath?

Well many of the causes of bad breath are things that we take for granted and use everyday. Most toothpastes can be a cause of bad breath because the stuff that makes the foam actually promotes production of VSCs.

A dry tongue can also be a cause of bad breath. The bacteria that produce those nasty SVCs actually don't like oxygen, so a dry mouth is perfect and hence becomes a cause of bad breath.

The nasty stuff from the bacteria comes from the breakdown of Amino acids, which are found in protein. So high protein foods can be a cause of bad breath, even a generally high protein diet could be one of the causes of bad breath.

Once you have elevated levels of the bacteria in your throat, it becomes very difficult to fight off the bad breath as those bacteria can use anything to be the next trigger for your bad breath. By successfully reducing the amount of bacteria in your throat you can make sure that it becomes that much more difficult to get the bad breath in the first place.

You literally zap the cause of bad breath at its source.

So one of the causes of bad breath are those things that allow the bacteria to produce more SVCs, so avoid or treat these and you will rid yourself of your cause of bad breath. Otherwise hit at the source and reduce those bacteria.

Although there is no exact treatment for fibromyalgia, but some preventive measures can be taken to get rid of it. Presently doctors are concentrating on managing pain, relaxing muscles and reduced depression. Doctors prescribe patients, low-stress exercises such as walking, swimming, water aerobics, and biking rather than muscle-straining exercises such as weight training. Some other measures are heat applied to sore muscles, stretching exercises (Pilates is one form.) and massage.

    As there is no specific medicine for fibromyalgia, doctors try to reduce the pain and increase the sleep. In order to achieve that following types of medicines are prescribed:

    Analgesics: Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) may reduce the pain and stiffness caused by fibromyalgia. However, its effectiveness varies with individuals. Tramadol (Ultram) is a pain reliever medicine that may be taken with or without acetaminophen. Doctors often recommend nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) — such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or naproxen sodium (Anaprox, Aleve) — in combination with other medications, but NSAIDs haven't proven to be useful in control the pain in fibromyalgia when taken by themselves.

    Antidepressants: Doctors advise antidepressant medications, such as amitriptyline, nortriptyline (Aventyl, Pamelor) or doxepin (Sinequan) to help deep and uninterrupted sleep. Fluoxetine (Prozac) in mixture with amitriptyline has also been found efficient. Sertraline (Zoloft) and paroxetine (Paxil) are also effective for the patients suffering from depression. These medications may be beneficial by affecting serotonin levels in the brain.

    Muscle relaxants: Taking the medication cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) at bedtime may help to take care of muscle pain and spasms.

    Doctors strictly oppose consumption of sleeping pills and pain killers. Patients sometimes take them for quick relief, but the effect is very short term while the side-effect lasts for a long term. These medicines are type of narcotic, so these are very harmful for the patients.

    Some self made measures can also be effective to prevent fibromyalgia. These procedures can be exercised in home. The measures are:

        * Proper workout include walking, swimming, biking and water aerobics. A physical therapist may help you develop a home exercise program.

        * Stretching, Free-hands, Good posture and relaxation workouts are also helpful.

        * Develop a plan to avoid or limit over-exertion and poignant stress. Give yourself time each day to rest.

        * Exercise stress lessening techniques, such as deep-breathing exercises, meditation and Yoga.

        * Leading a very healthy and simple lifestyle can also help to prevent fibromyalgia.

People with hemorrhoids have been stereotyped by the comics or comedians to be laughing stocks. That’s why fewer people with hemorrhoids tend to go to a doctor and have back irritations and pain sensations consulted by a specialist. Instead they just wait for the pain to subside and just worry about it some other time; especially if the pain becomes chronic. If you are really worried about having hemorrhoids, a careful lifestyle will help a lot. Here are some causes of hemorrhoids that you may have been practicing.

Pregnancy:

Being pregnant causes a woman to increase chances of having hemorrhoids. This is because the rectal veins will be pressured more because of the added weight in the uterus. For women who are already experiencing hemorrhoids, pregnancy can worsen the situation.

Women who are pregnant who do not experience hemorrhoids during pregnancy may still get hemorrhoids during the labor period. This is due to the long and arduous delivery. Another reason is the constipation that a woman experiences after childbirth. Because of the tenderness in the anus and perianal area, women will prolong bowel movements.

Postponing Bowel Movements:

There are some people who are afraid to crap at other places because the toilet might be dirty. Another reason is that there is just no toilet nearby. So people will just try to force the crap back inside for a couple more hours. Doing this occasionally can do no harm, however if it becomes habitual it might lead to hemorrhoids.

When the crap stays longer in the fecal colon, it becomes harder and drier. This makes it tougher to pass. You will then need to force its way out. The rectal muscles that signal a person its time to crap may also become weaker. Just imagine a situation that you suddenly crap in your pants because you didn’t feel anything.

Diseases:

There are lots of diseases that cause hemorrhoids. One disease that can seriously cause hemorrhoids is rectal cancer. This is because rectal cancer will make the person have “false” calls of nature. It will then cause the person to go the bathroom regularly and will strain longer.

People who abuse alcohol will make their livers larger. This will then create extra pressure on the rectal veins. Other diseases that may also cause hemorrhoids are irritable bowel syndrome and intestinal tumor. These diseases causes constipation or interfere with normal elimination.


title:Causes of variations from normal sperm count

article:

The factors that may affect the normal sperm count and quality could actually be summarized in six main points namely: sperm mobility, concentration, morphology, speed, count and last but not the least, sub-fertility. Drawbacks in any of these areas can vastly affect the chances of conception.
Sperm mobility refers to the sperm's ability to move in a rather dynamic and active fashion. When it comes to healthy sperm, more than 50% of them may be considered as active if over 25% of them moving vehemently in one direction. Its significance can be understood by the fact that it enables the sperm to travel through the cervical canal, into the uterus and the fallopian tubes and finally, to break through the egg.
Normal sperm count is a function of concentration that refers to the measure of the number of sperm cells in a milliliter of semen. The average or normal concentration measures around 22 million sperm cells per milliliter of semen.
The third point is morphology. A healthy sperm cell bears a resemblance to a tadpole in shape. The oval head of the sperm holds the genetic material, while the center provides energy and the tail thrusts the sperm forward. In addition, experts believe that oddly shaped sperm are not capable of fertilizing an egg.
Speed is another factor that affects sperm quality. Based on the study made by the World Health Organization in a healthy male, beyond 25% of sperm will exhibit progressive mobility. These are the sperm with the best chance of successfully infiltrating and fertilizing an egg.
Normal sperm count is also a vital factor in sperm production. Count refers to the number of sperms in the fluid that is ejaculated. There are over 50 million sperms in a normal ejaculate, and a total count below 40 million may indicate decreased fertility.
The sixth and last factor is sub-fertility. The term refers to the couples that are unable to reach conception even after a year’s period of unprotected intercourse. However, this is different from infertility. The typical causes of male sub-fertility include sperm production problems, blockage in the sperm’s delivery system, injuries to the testicles, low or high hormone production, anatomical problems, varicocele, past illnesses, side effects of medications, and sperm quality.
Increasing the volume of ejaculation and the normal sperm count has become a common obsession among men. During the past few years, the medical community had been committed to developing a safe and effective alternative treatment than the run of the mill advice that has been handed down from one generation to the next. Recent studies show that increasing sperm volume could actually be accomplished in two ways. First is by taking herbal supplements that contain amino acids and zinc. Amino acids, if taken regularly, are generally believed to increase ejaculate fluid. On the other hand, zinc seems to improve both the amount of sperm produced as well as the sperm's ability to move spontaneously and independently. Together with amino acids, this will increase normal sperm count and volume significantly.
The second way is doing PC exercises. Although Kegel exercises can help you last longer, they can also aid in increasing sperm volume. Several exercises can help to keep your penis in great shape and shoot like a champion.

This article is written from a layman’s' perspective. Always check with your doctor with any vertigo symptoms (dizziness).

The first time I experienced Vertigo symptoms was right after I had a nasty bout with bronchitis. I had already missed one week of work because of it. On the day I planned on returning to work; I got up when my alarm went off and promptly hit the floor.

I didn't fall to the floor because my legs were weak. I didn't even feel "bad". But I was as dizzy as you could get. Scared out of my wits - I'd never experienced any thing like this before in my life - I crawled my way to the living room and climbed into a chair. The dizziness remained. I made coffee, thinking the Vertigo symptoms would go away. They didn't and I decided to go to the emergency room.

At the emergency room, (as visions of brain tumors and the like presented themselves in my mind) the doctor seemed quite confident as to what my problem was. He asked me a series of questions, ran some tests, did some blood work and gave me some Antivert. He concluded that because of the Bronchitis, I had gotten the Vertigo, and that this was common. Vertigo is also common in the elderly - and it's usually chronic.

He sent me home with my prescription of Antivert. I was out of work for another week, basically chained to my couch or bed. I couldn't do anything else. I could not sit in front of my computer, or watch TV - everything had a tendency to bounce around. I was miserable. The Antivert that was prescribed to me made me incredibly drowsy and I slept a lot. After 3 days, I felt better and not quite so dizzy, but I still was unable to drive at this point, and it took another few days to feel normal.

The best way for me to describe my Vertigo symptoms is this. Don't laugh. It's exactly how I felt.

Have you ever gotten so drunk to the point to where you got the spins? The room starts spinning and twirling taking you for the ride. It only goes away when you lay down and lay completely still. Only with Vertigo symptoms, it doesn't go away.

My mother is prone to Vertigo, she usually gets the Transderm Scop motion sickness patch. She says it doesn't make her drowsy and vertigo symptoms go away within 24 hours. I've never tried the patch, I've always taken Antivert, prescribed by a doctor or you can also buy generic Antivert over the counter at any drugstore. Look for Meclizine on the box, or the brand Bonine.

My understanding of one of the causes of Vertigo is an imbalance of the crystals in the ear, which make sense, at least for me since I only get Vertigo after I've been sick with Bronchitis.

If you are experiencing vertigo symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.

Scalp Eczema

I am often asked what is the best remedy for dry scaly scalp - or another question is what are scaly bumps on scalp?  If you too ask this question, you are likely suffering from Eczema of the scalp.Eczema is an itchy, prickly irritation of the skin that can be extremely annoying to those who are unfortunate enough to be affected with this malady. People can be affected with eczema all over the entire body, but one of the most common types of eczema is that which affects the scalp. 

Where and When Does Scalp Eczema Begin?
When you have eczema of the scalp, the oil glands contained in the skin of your scalp are involved. These oil glands are connected to the follicles of the hair, and their job is to produce enough oil to keep the skin of the scalp smooth and supple as well as to keep the hair from being dry and rough to the touch. This involvement of the oil glands is why scalp eczema also goes by the name of either Seborrhoeic dermatitis, or Seborrhoeic eczema. This type of eczema affects the parts of the body that produce more skin oil than other areas are known to, such as the scalp, eyebrows, and sides of the nose.  You may have first noticed scaly scalp or bumps.Many times, scalp eczema starts at puberty, when the oil glands in the scalp began to produce more oil than usual because of the influx of hormones that have begun to flood the body. But, this disorder can appear on a person of any age. It seems to be a bit more common in men than in women, although females certainly suffer from it as well. Scalp eczema is known to be a chronic condition in that it can flare up seemingly for no reason at all, and then retreat, not to be seen again for months or years. Or, it can be an ongoing condition where the time without any symptoms is quite rare.

What Causes Scalp Eczema?
No one is exactly sure what the cause of scalp eczema is, but there are several theories as to why it occurs, such as – Hormones, no matter what your age group A skin fungusToxins in the body which seem to overwhelm the immune system Stress, which in turn can further aggravate the condition.


Symptoms of Scalp Eczema
Scalp eczema can start out with very mild symptoms. In fact, many people are totally unaware that they have this skin condition until it has gotten out of hand. The first telltale sign is a slight case of dandruff which can quickly escalate to an unusually oily scalp with extremely itchy, red and irritated skin. Scaly patches of skin with a yellowish crust from the excess oil are also quite common.  Itching of the scalp of course causes scratching, which eventually breaks the skin and can create open sores.

Treatment of Scalp Eczema
There are a number of topical creams and ointments on the market which are manufactured to treat scalp eczema and help the itching, excess oiliness and flaky skin. Medicated shampoos are also helpful, and may be used on a regular basis to help control symptoms. Many times, doctors will prescribe hydrocortisone (also known as steroids) to treat scalp eczema, but studies have shown that this only masks the symptoms. The steroid treatment does nothing to get to the actual cause of the disorder, but merely helps to relieve the itching, which can allow the skin to begin to heal.
Scalp on the scalp eczema has the maddening habit of recurring once you think you have it conquered and cease treatment. But beginning a treatment routine at the first sign of a flare up is the only way to keep a bout with scalp eczema from getting out of hand.  I am often asked what is the best remedy for dry scaly scalp?

You can use a variety of natural treatment including slight diet adjustments for a while and also by using natural oils such as hemp or neem and lavender to soothe and heal. You can also do a lot to help your scalp by using products that are gentle on your skin instead of harsh cleansing ingredients found in most shampoos.  To find a good shampoo for scalp eczema look for one that doesn’t contain sulphates (a harsh foaming agent called a surfactant) and instead contains natural surfactants like yukka or coconut.Scalp eczema and other scaly scalp conditions can be eliminated by understanding what to avoid and what you can use at home to nourish and heal your scalp.

Many people believe that the cause of childhood obesity is due to over eating and laziness and to an extent they are right but the main cause of childhood obesity are two reasons. The child’s DNA and their parents. If people in the child's family have been struggling with weight gain for most of their life then the genes in that child will make them more susceptible to follow the same pattern, but that can be prevented by healthy eating and exercise which is where the parents come in. Children imitate their parents behaviour so if the parents were to eat healthily and live active lifestyles the child is sure to follow but in this day and age that is not the case and because more adults are going down the road of obesity more children are following them and ultimately suffering at the same hand of fate as their parents although it could easily be prevented!

Parents have the most influence on their child's life, they have the power to show the child that over eating and that lack of exercise is not acceptable in a young person’s life and this is the cause of obesity problems later on in life. Obesity has some dreadful side affects and day to day life can be very unpleasant and simple tasks such as climbing stairs, taking a shower and other general things take more time and more effort because of the extra weight. This is even worse for a child, they need to be active and have fun!

The causes of childhood obesity are not so severe that obesity can be avoided! If you we teach oour children how to live an active and healthy lifestyle there is no reason why they should become obese even if they’re family are full of obese people! Obesity is a cause and effect disease it is caused by several things over eating being the man one and the effects are horrible which complicated medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and coronary heart disease! Childhood obesity can be avoided so lets try and do that, lets avoid it and help our children lead happy healthy lives with no health problems or emotional setbacks!

Genetic make up plays a large part when it comes to obesity and the cause of it. If you family members before hand have struggled to control their weight then you will ultimately suffer the same fate. I am not saying that you cannot stop it, of course you can. It takes a lot of time and hard work to prevent it but following a proper diet plan with exercise is a great way to prevent obesity falling upon you. So yes, the cause of obesity does sometimes boil down to your DNA.

Laziness and unhealthy living plays major part to the cause of obesity also. When you eat and you do not exercise, the energy from food is not used and is then stored as fat, the more fat your store the bigger you get and the more obese you become! Steps can be taken to prevent obesity by following a healthy living plan. The government have invested a lot of money into showing people how to live a healthy lifestyle, there are books, adverts and leaflets available to the public for information on how to live a healthy life. There are also slimming clubs and diets that can be joined to help you shed the weight.

The cause of obesity is due to a variety of factors that all need to be addressed and sorted out. If you are struggling with obesity then you need to seek out help, although you do not have to look very far! Doctors and friends are always there to offer support advice and help when it comes to struggling with obesity. The cause of obesity can also be medical related but that is not always the case, people are just sometimes to lazy!

Article Body:
It is strange but true that the exact Cause of Primary Pulmonary Hypertension is yet to be ascertained. However, researchers in this regard suggest that certain diet drugs (appetite suppressants) can make a person more prone to developing this fatal condition.

Primary Pulmonary Hypertension is basically a disorder of the blood vessels wherein the pressure in the pulmonary artery rises above normal levels, thereby posing a life-threatening risk. Several diseases or causative factors, largely unknown, may lead to the malfunctioning denoted by the term Primary Pulmonary Hypertension.

Research done in recent times point out that A mutation in the gene denoted BMPR2 Causes Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. Researchers have sensed that other genes may also possibly lead to causing Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. It is also probable that other genes can contribute to the development of the disease in people, together with the known mutation of the BMPR2 gene. The disease is thereby inheritable via genes.

Most cases of Primary Pulmonary Hypertension are, however, found to be not inherited as a result of traits in genes. Cirrhosis of THE liver, stimulant abuse and H.I.V. infection are often closely associated with Primary Pulmonary Hypertension, though no cause of the disease has been specifically delineated. Conclusive evidence has, however, been found regarding a direct correlation between the usage of appetite suppressants (diet drugs) and the risk of Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. The names of Pondimin and Redux, commonly known as Fen Phen, are important in this regard. These drugs were recommended by hospitals and health centers from the 1970s to late 1990s. The manufacturers and the people prescribing it (doctors and the like) did not have the necessary diligence to discover the severe risk involved in using the drugs. Their ignorance has, thus, been the cause of thousands of people either suffering from the disease or potentially at risk to fall prey to the deadly condition.

When a person has a stutter or a parent realises that their child is developing a stutter they often want to find out the cause. So what causes a stutter?

The answer is many things can trigger someone starting to stutter. These are some of them:
It can be a traumatic event
It can run in the family
People may copy a friend at school who has a stutter and then it sticks An over aggressive relative

Last year I had a female client who told me how she had developed a stutter. She was fluent until the age of twenty four. At this age she became pregnant for the first time, she was very happy and excited about the prospects about becoming a mother.

She was apprehensive about the birth and her friends had been winding her up telling her how painful the experience is. She knew that they were only teasing and tried to keep relaxed.

The day of the birth arrived and unfortunately the delivery was particulary hard and she was extremely shocked about how bad it actually was. After the birth of the baby, who was a healthy boy she developed the stutter.

Not all people who stutter have it from an early age, another one of my clients was fluent until the age of nineteen. At this age he had a car crash and this was the trigger to him starting to stutter.

Chelation therapy is the use of chelating agents to remove heavy metal ions from the body. Chelation (pronounced Kee la shun) therapy started during World War I when poison gas (Lewisite) affected soldiers were treated with a chelating agent Dimercapol also known as British Anti Lewisite (BAL). BAL had severe and painful side effects but was the only known antidote for the arsenic based poison gas at that time.

With the advancement in medicines many chelating agents were developed in the US, USSR and England which do not have as severe side effects as BAL. There are other chelating agents which have been developed to nullify the effects of harmful metallic ions. Some of them are:

BAL  : British Anti Lewisite
EDTA : Dietheylene triamine pentaacetic acid
DMSA : Dimercaptosuccinic acid
DMPS : Dimercapto-propane sulfonate
ALA  : Alpha lipoic acid
Ca Na2 –EDTA : Calcuium disodium versante
D-Penicillamine
Deferosamine
Deferoxamine

Chelation therapy is conventionally used for treatment of heavy metal poisoning like mercury, arsenic, plutonium, lead and iron, (as in thalassemia). It is only used in acute cases where the poisoning is so high as to justify chelation therapy. The chelating agents are treated orally or intravenously or intramuscularly depending on the type of poisoning. Chelation therapy is also used for treatment of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), autism caused by mercury by alternative medicine practitioners but the efficacy of chelation therapy is not proven for these ailments. Chelation therapy involves undergoing 20 to 50 infusions depending on the type of patient.

Chelating agents work by forming a water soluble compound with the harmful metal ions in the blood. This water soluble compound flows through the blood stream and is cleaned by kidneys and the liver.

It has been claimed widely that Chelation therapy is efficacious in treatment of people with fatty buildups of plaque in their arteries (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis is the main cause of heart attack and stroke where in fatty deposits in the arteries constrict the arteries. Calcium is a constituent of this fatty deposit. Chelation therapists claim that the chelating agents remove the calcium from the deposit and thus the artery gets cleared. However the problem with this theory is that the chelating agent cannot penetrate the cell wall and get to the calcium deposit. Further the chelating agent has more affinity for other ions than for calcium.

The proponents of chelation therapy like American College for Advancement of Medicine ACAM (a private organization) and few parent organizations have widely supported Chelation therapy. One example of successful use of chelation therapy is of Mr.Harold Mc Cluskey a nuclear worker who had been poisoned by americium and was later treated successfully by chelation therapy. Further high sulfur foods like onions, garlics, seaweeds etc,. are being used as “chelating agents” due to folklore. MSM and NAC have also been used as sulfur supplements. However they are not chelating agents as the double bond with the metal ion is not involved and these compounds have mono thiols whereas chelating agents have di-thiols.

The opponents of chelation therapy have pointed to the dangers of chelation therapy like hypocalcaemia and mainstream medicine has rejected the claims of chelation therapists. Caution is advised before undergoing chelation therapy.

Caution: Hidden Sodium Inside Common Processed Foods

Word Count:

Summary:
Salt is not just to perk up the flavor of dishes but is also essential to maintaining a good health.  While sodium deficiency can be problematic, excessive salt intakes have been associated with diseases and other conditions, such as hypertension and stomach cancer.


Keywords:
metabolism, vomiting, muscle cramps, nausea, heart disease, obesity


Article Body:
When food tastes quite bland, a sprinkling of table salt usually does the trick. Instantly, it perks up the flavor of the dish.  But salt is not just for seasoning.  It is also essential to maintaining good health. The human body needs a good balance of salt and water for metabolism. This careful balance between salt and water regulates the electrolytes inside and outside of the body's cells. Salt is a chemical compound that combines sodium and chloride. It also maintains the correct volume of circulating blood and tissue fluids of the body. Our source of salt comes from food and water, while our body loses salt through urine, perspiration, vomiting and diarrhea. Loss of body salt may cause the level of fluid in the blood to drop. Losing too much salt in the body can lead to muscle cramps, nausea, dizziness, and vomiting. Eventually lack of salt can lead to shock, coma, and death.

While sodium deficiency can be problematic, excessive salt intakes have been associated with diseases and other conditions, such as hypertension and stomach cancer.  Studies revealed that Americans eat nearly two teaspoons of salt daily, considered to be more than double the amount they need for good health. The culprit is not the table salt-shaker. Neither is the cook.  Most of the sodium is hidden inside common processed foods like stuffing mix, gravy, and all those ingredients for your holiday goodies. Public health specialists filed a petition with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as part of their clamor for government intervention to require food manufacturers to cut down on sodium content in the products they bring to the market. Their campaign is part of their fight heart disease. The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a consumer advocacy group, and food makers held an unprecedented, closed-door meeting on how to reduce sodium.

The American Medical Association (AMA) says that reducing sodium content in processed and restaurant foods by fifty percent within 10 years could wind up saving 150,000 lives annually.  However, food manufacturers argue that it would take a tremendous investment on the part of the government and the industry to come up with sodium alternatives that works well with food. On the other hand, studies show that people who get used to eating less salt even in just a few months usually find their old foods too salty.
High blood pressure is experienced by at least one in three U.S. adults and almost 1 billion people worldwide. On the other hand, hypertension is a leading cause of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure. Aside from obesity and inactivity, too much salt also raises blood pressure. While the average American consumes between 3,300 and 4,000 milligrams of sodium a day, the recommended daily requirement set by the government is 2,300 mg a day as the safe upper limit. But the Institute of Medicine says that 1,500 mg a day, a little less for older adults, is enough to regulate the body's fluid balance.
Freezing technology can help bring down the sodium level of some frozen vegetables, though other foods may get saltier.  Now that the holidays are fast approaching, Thanksgiving dinner alone can easily reach those limits. Think of the stuffing, gravy, salt-injected turkey, biscuit, dinner roll and the pumpkin pie. Homemade cooking, however, can help you regulate the sodium content of the ingredients and recipes.

Celedrin - The Natural way to be Free from Pain
When most people think of Celadrin, what comes to mind is usually basic information that's not particularly interesting or beneficial. But there's a lot more to Celadrin than just the basics.
Celadrin – or cetyl myristoleate - is one of a number of supplements taken by arthritis sufferers, but it really came into its own recently when the government withdrew popular painkillers like Vioxx from the market due to health concerns. This left many arthritis suffers with no option but to consider an operation to relieve their pain. An operation – or a supplement like Celadrin? Many decided to try the less invasive option first.
Traditionally, doctors have not been keen to offer supplements to their patients, but many are increasingly coming to see that products like Celadrin may be a suitable alternative for those people who for some reason cannot - or choose not to - have an operation.
A scientist who was trying to understand why he couldn’t induce arthritis into mice discovered Celadrin about a decade ago. It contains a blend of eight stable fatty acids that can easily penetrate cell membranes and by providing lubrication to the cell membranes and decreasing inflammation it supports joint health. In fact, research has shown that it definitely improves not only the range of motion in a joint affected by arthritis, but balance, strength and endurance were also improved.
Placebo-controlled studies in 2002 showed that the subjects were able to perform several day-to-day functions like climbing stairs and even simply walking that had been painfully difficult before. Some subjects were even able to return to jogging, an exercise that had been impossible for some time due to the pain and stiffness experienced from arthritis. 
Is everything making sense so far? If not, I'm sure that with just a little more reading, all the facts will fall into place.
University bio-chemist Dr. Daniel Gallaher PhD, prescribes Celadrin for many of his patients and has had no side-effects reported. The pills may need be taken for at least two months before improvement is noticed, though in some cases this time is considerably shorter. Some patients have noted a dramatic improvement within a few days of applying the lotion.
Daniel Hoeffal MD, advises his patients to take the product scientifically. That is, no more than one supplement at a time and stick to the instructions on the bottle. If several supplements are taken at once, there is no way of determining which was the one responsible for giving relief.
Celadrin comes in pill form and topical lotion and is quite affordable compared to some other supplements, with the pills costing about $12.00 a bottle and the lotion half that. It is available as a stand-alone product, or combined with other products such as Glucosamine
Always consult your health care professional before taking supplements, as some can interfere with the absorption of other medications, while others may change how internal organs function, cause blood pressure or clotting.
This article's coverage of the information is as complete as it can be today. But you should always leave open the possibility that future research could uncover new facts.

Article Body:
Stress and anxiety have become such an integral part of modern urban life, and it is no wonder that the market now is riddled with numerous drugs designed to lower these all-too-common human problems. It is not exaggeration to say that most people living and working in the city, particularly those climbing up the government bureaucracy or the corporate ladder, have had to take a “chill pill” or two. The fact is, with the modern world's focus on success and the “bottom line,”  the average Joe always lacks the time to unwind and vent.  Some,with utter resignation, would just point to the mysterious signs on the back of the US dollar and understand why they have to be “slaves” even in the 21st century.

Of course, this particular situation is a veritable goldmine for folks who make the aforementioned “chill pills.” Stress, fear, anxiety, and whatever else might fit into their category all have a drug or two that is designed to help deal with the effects. These drugs, which often tackle certain chemical transmitters in the central nervous system, can sometimes be made to target a number of conditions at once. However, it is generally more common to see drugs that target either specific or related conditions.

A prime example of this would be Cymbalta, an anti-anxiety and anti-depression drug. While by no means an obvious choice, Cymbalta for anxiety is gaining ground for being an effective medication for dealing with anxiety problems. Recent studies have shown that using Cymbalta for anxiety disorders is on the increase, though it is not quite as obvious a choice as cymbalta use for depression. This is likely due to the availability of more prominent medications that are on the forefront, whereas cymbalta for anxiety treatment is relatively new.

Celexa anxiety medication is also gaining ground in terms of commercial use and doctor-preference.  Celexa anxiety treatment also works by targeting the central nervous system but the set of neurotransmitters and receptors in the brain are different.  Celexa anxiety drugs have not been found to have any noticeable or significant effects on other psychological disorders, though research is still being conducted in this regard. Celexa anxiety prescriptions are really no more frequent than other potential anxiety treatments, though there are several patient testimonials that attest to the efficacy of celexa anxiety pills.

Of course, celexa anxiety and cymbalta for anxiety are not the only anti-anxiety medications on the market. There are still several other drugs out there, with similarities and differences from the examples mentioned above. A vast majority of them affect the chemical component of the central nervous system, which is believed to be the non-mental root of most anxiety-related disorders.

Celiac Disease is a digestive disorder found in patients who are genetically susceptible, with the resulting damage to the small intestine by an interference with the absorption of nutrients. The main culprit with Celiac Disease is a protein called Gluten. These proteins are found in all forms of main stream and non-mainstream wheat products. Such as durum semolina, spelt, einkorn, kamut and related grains such as rye, barley, and oats. Damage to the mucus on the surface of the small intestine is caused by a toxic reaction to the ingestion of gluten.
Effects Of:
With Celiac Disease the villi,which are the tiny hair-like projections in the small intestine, shrink and eventually disappear. This is the destructive reaction to Celiac Disease. Damaged villi interferes with the body's ability to absorb nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and even possibly water and bile salts. If left untreated, damage to the small bowel can be life threatening, posing an increased risk of many disorders.
If Left Untreated:
Iron deficiency, Anemia, Vitamin K deficiency, Vitamin deficiencies such as folate, B12, B6, or an iron deficiency, and other mineral deficiencies, Other food sensitivities.
Symptoms May Include:
Abdominal cramping,gas,and bloating.Diarrhea or constipation. Fluctuation of weight(loss or gain), fatigue, weakness, lack of energy, and all thats associated with with lack of energy.
Possible Treatment:
There is no treatment or cure for Celiac Disease. Except for a lifelong adherence to a strict gluten-free diet. When gluten is removed from the diet, the small intestine will begin to heal and general health will be improved. You may want to consider supplementation for any deficiencies. Consult your doctor about this. Lifestyle changes are in order for the Celiac sufferer. Become a label reader. If you are unsure about a certian food or ingredient, stay away and learn to identify ingredients that may contain that hidden gluten. Be very diligent. Be aware that hidden gluten can be hiding in some unlikely foods such as low or non-fat products, deli meats, soups, hard candies, soy sauce, even salad dressings. If there is no label to read such as candy in a dish, stay away, again be very diligent.
Gluten may also be used as a binder in prescription medicines. Again ask youre doctor about Gluten in medications.
Alcohol that's properly distilled shouldn't contain any harmful gluten. Research indicates that the peptide is too large to carry over in the distillation process. Beer is a definite no-no. You might want to consider staying away from alcohol altogether (like the author of this site). This might seem drastic to some but our health is at stake. Wine from the Liquor store might bother youre stomach, like it does mine possibly because of Sulfites as a preserative to give it a longer shelf life. Home made Wine wthout any added ingredients in moderation seems to be O.K.
Sometimes Gluten products are added to alcohols and Vinegars after the distilling process and should be avoided intirely. Malt vinegars are not distilled and therefore are not gluten-free. This in a nutshell is what Celiac Disease is. I might have left out some details, I'm not a doctor. But, I am a Celiac sufferer and I know what Celiac's go through.

Summary:
Managing one health problem can be difficult, particularly when it involves sticking rigidly to a restricted diet.  Having celiac disease and diabetes is unfortunate but not impossible.

This article offers strategies to ccombine both diets with the minimum of fuss.


Keywords:
celiac disease. gluten free, coeliac, gluten intolerance, diabetes, multiple health problems, positive thinking, celiac disease and diabetes, gluten-free, celiac sprue, special diet


Article Body:
Living with multiple health problems can complicate things.  As a diabetic balancing the levels of carbohydrates, (starches and sugars) with the level of insulin requires thought and discipline.  You should always consult your doctor and dietician for specific advice.

People with type 1 diabetes are at greater risk of developing celiac disease.  It follows that they will need to manage a diet which controls both conditions.  The diets do sit perfectly well together, but it needs careful planning.

In principle the same rules apply to your diet, whatever the problem.  As a diabetic you need to eat a well-balanced diet. The one area of difficulty is managing your carbohydrate intake with gluten-free versions.  You can find gluten-free carbohydrates in potatoes, rice, wild rice, buckwheat, maize, millet, sago, tapioca, corn flour, soya, polenta, flax, sorghum, linseed, gram flour, cargeenan, urd, channa (chickpea flour), quinoa, arrowroot, codex wheat starch, corn pasta, pure rice noodles, gluten-free pastas are available, as are gluten-free versions of bread.

Here are 5 rules to ennsure you get the most out of your life:

Become well informed about both conditions.  Be clear what you can and cannot eat, what alternatives there are and where you can get them.

Plan ahead-always take a supply of suitable gluten-free carbohydrates and insulin with you.  Planing ahead includes involving school, friends and other organizations of your needs.

Take control of your life, you are a person who happens to have celiac disease and diabetes.  You are not defined by these conditions.

Confidence grows out of knowing what you can and cannot eat.  Instead of tackling the conditions as two sets of restrictions, combine the needs of both.  Having both diabetes and celiac disease is unfortunate but it is important to be positive and take control.


Live life to the full.  Try new things, push out the boundaries and the sky is the limit!

If you are suffering from severe and chronic abdominal pain and bloating after meals, have excessive gas, or have large bulky stools that may have blood in them, you need to go to a doctor. While there are many causes for this set of symptoms including dysentery and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (which can only be treated with medications), it may be something called celiac sprue which is treated simply with a change in diet to a gluten free diet.

Celiac sprue is an allergic condition of the small bowel that causes inflammation and damage to the lining hindering absorption of nutrients. This is why you get the symptoms of malabsorption and intestinal damage (bleeding) described above. You may also have weight loss and suffer from dietary deficiencies like iron deficiency anemia and B12 deficiency neuropathies for example.

The substance that your body is allergic to turns out to be something called gluten that is a protein found in many of the grain products in a typical diet including wheat, rye, barley, etc. The bad thing is that this food product is found in so many things, the good thing is that the treatment for this condition is simple, change your diet. No meds with nasty side effects, no surgeries, no changes in activity, or other limitations. Don't get me wrong I am not saying that changing your diet and avoiding a common ingredient is just a walk in the park. But I am saying that this could be much worse than it is and that you can live a "normal" life despite this condition and the gluten free diet that you have to have.

So what about this diet? How much work is it? How much does it cost? What kind of affect will it have on my life? Well another positive thing to focus on is that you have a public health system that has made it easier on you if you have Celiac Sprue. They have made it mandatory for food producers to put labels on their food that show the ingredients and they have also made it a legitimate selling point to be gluten free. The other positive is that there are many similar products that will make staying gluten free easier in terms of acceptable substitute foods. There are helpful lists and recipe books and other resources that can make this process as close to a walk in the park as possible.

The other nice thing about the new diet is that it will have an almost immediate effect on the symptoms, for sure within one week of new diet initiation. The lining of your intestine takes a bit longer but will also return completely to normal. No more embarrassing bodily malfunctions, no more pain, and being able to enjoy meals again! Sounds nice doesn't it?

Cellulite...a womans worse nightmare, but what the hell is it? Well you might know it as orange peel, lumpy mattress, golf ball, dimples or even craters!
Currently Cellulite is said to be caused by connective tissue weakening between the skin and underlying fat. Therefore, fat beneath pushes out slighlty causing the orange peel look.
It's not just you that Cellulite affects. Models, athletes, office workers, mothers are all at risk. There are many factors which contribute and aggravate Cellulite some of which are stress, weight gain, a sedentary lifestyle, hormonal contraceptives and inflamation. While Cellulite affects all shapes and sizes, body fat levels play a large role in worsening the appearance of it.
Have you entered grade 2?! Grade 2 Cellulite is the first stage where the condition is visible. It usually starts on the glutes or on the back of the thighs. What can you do about it? The best form of treatment is to reduce the factors that contribute such as those mentioned above. However the main foundation for any treatment rests with diet and exercise...eat healthy and be active!
Are you overweight? If so the appearance of cellulite can look even worse. There are many pills, creams and oitments offering magical cures. However, most of these products either produce short term or disappointing results.
It is widely accepted that by lowering your body fat and toning your muscles cellulite can be lessened or even correct the appearance. Therefore, its time to begin exercising and start eating that little bit healthier.
Well done, you've decided to make the commitment to exercise but what do you do now? Which exercises, how long for?
The plan...you want to lose weight and tone up. The most important cause of fat gain and losses is your resting metabolic rate, this is the rate at which you burn calories while resting. Its all very well going to the gym and burning calories when you are there but what happens when you're at home? You need to rev up your resting metabolic rate so that you burn more calories when you are sitting at home watching TV. After all, to lose weights all you have to do is burn more calories than you are taking in.
The exercises that you need to know! First off cardio, idealy 5 times a week for 60 mins. Good forms of cardio include, fast walking, running, cycling, elliptical, etc. However, if you really want to rev your metabolism up you need to do some interval training as this willenable you to burn a faster rate of calories after the exercise is finished. Interval training is repeated bouts of high intensity exercise interupted by short rest periods. Once again, any of the exercises above can be used. An example would be to run for 1 minute at 90-100% of maximum effort, followed by 2-3 mins rest. Repeating this 10-15 times. You should try to interval train twice a week.
Weight Training...you will not get bulky! No! Never! Women simply don't have enough testosterone in their body to get big like men do. Weight training is the core of your cellulite management program. Why i hear you ask. Muscle is the most metabolically active tissue in the body. Weight training helps people lose fat because it burns calories, increases muscle mass which consequently helps increase the amount of calories you burn over a 24 hour period. 2-3 weight training sessions per week is sufficient enough to add muscle mass.
Finally, remember there are many treatments out there offering fantastic results but the true cure lies with eating healthily and exercising. This way you can eliminate excess fat and the appearance of cellulite, even to a point where the cellulite is no longer visible.

Keywords:
Sleep Apnea, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Central Sleep Apnea, Sleep Apnea Machines


Article Body:
Central sleep apnea is a rare condition characterized by a cessation or decrease in breathing during sleep due to problem with signals from the brain that control breathing.

The symptoms of central sleep apnea are loud snoring, hypersomnolence (excessive daytime sleepiness), and restless sleep. The problem of excessive daytime sleepiness (especially while driving, working or talking) develops slowly over years and is noticeable by friends and colleagues. Hypersomnolence and neurocognitive disturbances stand as a cause for automobile or work-related accidents in sleep apnea patients. 

Other symptoms of central sleep apnea include choking or gasping during sleep, unrefreshing sleep, morning headaches, daytime fatigue, personality changes, memory impairment, impaired concentration, poor judgment, mood disturbances, recent weight gain, polyurea, and impotence. 

The hypoxic and hypercapnic drives can be impaired by brain stem lesions or by exposure to recurrent hypoxia and hypercapnia and result in central sleep apnea. The stimulus to breathe instead from the cortex and reticular activating system is lost during sleep and the patient stops breathing, the so-called “Ondine’s curse”. Central sleep apnea can also be caused by another rare condition of bilateral diaphragm paralysis which usually occurs as part of a general neuromuscular condition but in some cases can lead to respiratory failure before general weakness is apparent. 

The most common and effective treatment option for patients of central sleep apnea is assisted overnight ventilation with external devices such as a rocking bed, or cuirasse. A rocking bed prevents cessation of breathing during sleep by pushing the diaphragm up and down by gravity. Another ventilator device of importance is cuirasse. Cuirasse consists of a small shell that fits around the patient and is connected to an intermittent vacuum pump that draws out the chest wall.

"If we do not find time to take care of our health, we will reluctantly have to find time for our illness"
-Hippocrates

Lately there's a lot of buzz in the news and online about green tea and its' health benefits, particularly the role of polyphenols in green tea.
Polyphenols are chemical compounds found in fruits, vegetables and green tea and further divided into sub groups called catechins. There are 4 major catechins in green tea of which EGCG ((-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most potent and found in abundance in green tea.


This compound is dubbed the "super antioxidant" because it's more powerful than the popular antioxidants Vitamin E & Vitamin C. This super antioxidant eliminates free radicals, the unstable molecules in the body that are the major cause of both aging and disease, which continually attack the body and leave the body vulnerable to disease.

Free radicals disrupt the biochemical processes within cells, and our body's natural defenses become compromised leading to illness. Free radicals indiscriminately kill cells, destroy enzymes and produce toxic chemicals which cause damage to cellular functions. They are highly reactive molecules; their activities cause damage to critical structures such as DNA, lipids and proteins. All of which are vital for normal cellular function.
Free radicals in the body are toxic forms of reactive oxygen metabolites (ROM). It's ironic that on one hand oxygen sustains us and on the other hand oxygen can be responsible for much of the destruction and aging of our cells. Free radicals are responsible for many ailments including but not limited to aging, cancer, heart disease, stroke and arthritis.

Without an antioxidant line of defense, your cells oxidize or breakdown faster thus speeding up the aging process, it's the free radicals oxidative damage that makes us age.

Since EGCG contained in green tea is a potent antioxidant it neutralizes free radicals and hence is responsible for the health promoting benefits listed below.

 Lower total cholesterol and LDL (bad)-cholesterol levels
 Increase HDL (good)-cholesterol levels
 Reduce the risk of cancer 
 Reduce the risk of heart attack
 Decrease the risk of stroke
 Decrease the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis
 Enhance immune function
 Act as an antibacterial and antiviral agent 
 Help in weight loss
 Boost longevity due to potent antioxidant properties

One cup of green tea usually provides 100-300 mg of polyphenols and contains EGCG in high concentrations. As mentioned above EGCG is believed to possess 100 times more potency as an antioxidant than Vitamin C and at least 25 times more potency than Vitamin E and protects cells and DNA from damage believed to be linked to cancer, heart disease and other potentially fatal illnesses.

Green tea has been used for centuries in China for the health benefits it provides. We're just now scratching the surface of what green tea has to offer, new studies come out constantly that provide data on the effectiveness of green tea against various ailments.

The latest research indicates that green tea may help in Alzheimer's disease by decreasing the production of a protein which in large amounts causes nerve damage and memory loss. All of the benefits of green tea can be attributed to polyphenols, particularly EGCG.

Green tea comes in various dosage forms but the more popular versions are the liquid forms and the patch. The patch seems to be gaining in popularity due to the convenience factor and delivery of the same amount of the active ingredient of green tea at a constant rate. Place the patch on the skin and wear it for 48 hours and replace it every other day. It can't get any simpler than that :-)

As you can see EGCG is an important component of green tea responsible for all of the health benefits listed above. Recent studies also indicate green tea as being effective in promoting weight loss.
Green tea is truly a 'wonder compound' with a large array of benefits for improving health. It's been around for thousands of years and now it has finally been re-discovered for our benefit.


CEREBRAL PALSY

It is a non progressive neuromuscular disorder causing mild to severe disabilities throughout life.This condition is manifested as a group of persisting qualitative motor disorders which appear in young children due to damage to the brain during delivery or due to some pathological conditions in the intrauterine life.The neuroligical problems are multiple but non progressive in nature.Approximately 2 per 100 live birth is having this problem.This disease is having no hereditary tendency.

Causes of cerebral palsy:

1) Injury to the brain during delivery.

2) As a complication of forceps delivery.

3) Lack of oxygen supply to the baby during delivery.

4) Infections during delivery.

Signs and symptoms of cerebral palsy:--

The signs and symptoms may not be similar in all babies affected.Depending upon the damage to the brain there may be mild to severe lesions.

Mild cases:- 20% children will have mild disability.

Moderate cases:-50% cases are having moderate disability.The affected children require self help for assisting their impaired ambulation capacity.

Severe cases:-About 30% of the affected children are totally incapacited and bedridden and they allways need care from others.

Abnormal findings in cerebral palsy:-

1,Abnormal neonatal reflexes.

2,Stiffness of all muscles with awkward motion.
3,Extention of extremities on vertical suspension of the infant.

4,Scissoring of the lower limbs due to spasm of the adductor muscles of the thigh.

5,In severe cases the back bend backwards like and arch.

6,May have total or partial paralysis.

7,Arrest of neurological and behavioral developement.

8,Swallowing may be difficult in some cases.

9,Drooling of saliva.

10,Mild to severe mental retardations.

11,Abnormal movements are seen in some cases.

12,Tremors with typical movements.

13,If cerebellum is affected there will be loss of muscle tone with difficulty in walking.

14,Complete or partial loss of hearing.

15,Speech may be affected.

16,Squint and other visual problems may be associated.

17,Convulsions may be seen in some children.

Cerebral palsy is diagnosed by detailed clinical examination and by eliminating other similar diseases like brain tumour, progressive atrophy ect.All investigations like CT scan,MRI and routine investigations are needed to ruleout other diseases.

Management of carebral palsy:--

General management:

This includes proper nutrition and personal care.  Symptomatic medicines are needed to reduce convulsions and muscle stiffness.  Diazepam can reduce spasticity and athetosis.
Dantrolene sodium helps to relax skeletal muscles.

Physiotherapy:

Here massage,exercise, hydrotherapy and ect are needed.Special training is given to train walking,swallowing and talking.The affected children are also trained to hold articles for routine activities.

Rehabilitation:

Moral and social support should be given to these children.They should be send to special schools where special training can be given by trained staff.Mentally retarded children need special training.Depending up on the disabitity special instruments and machines are given for locomotion and to assist their daytoday activities.

Occupational therapy:

This is given by occupational therapists.They train the disabled people to do some suitable works so that these people can have their own income.

Cervical Cancer HPV Vaccine

Summary:
Gardasil is a recently released vaccine aimed at protecting women against cervical cancer and the human papilloma virus (HPV) that causes it.


Keywords:
gardisal, hpv, vaccine, cervical cancer, skin, dermatology


Article Body:
Gardasil:
Cervical cancer is caused by a virus many people get in their teens and 20s.  Now there is a vaccine available to protect women from the most common cause of cervical cancer: a virus called HPV.
What is HPV?
HPV (human papillomavirus) is a common virus that affects both females and males.  There are actually more than 100 types of HPV. Most of them are relatively harmless, like the ones that cause common warts on the hands and feet. For most people, the body’s own defense system will clear the virus. However, there are a few types of HPV you should really know about.
Genital HPV:
About 30 types of HPV affect the genital area.
- Some are “high-risk” types (such as HPV Types 16 and 18) that can cause abnormal cervical cells and cervical cancer
 - Others are “low-risk” types (such as HPV Types 6 and 11) that can cause genital warts.
Genital Warts:
Genital warts are usually flesh-colored growths that are most often caused by certain “low-risk” types of HPV.  Anyone who has any kind of sexual activity involving genital contact can get HPV and genital warts – intercourse isn’t necessary.  And many people with HPV do not have genital warts or any other symptoms, so they can pass the virus without even knowing it. The warts may appear within weeks, months – or sometimes not at all.
More common than you might think:
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 80% of women will have had genital HPV by age 50. It’s estimated that most people get HPV within their first 2 to 3 years of becoming sexually active.
A cancer vaccine?
Gardasil is a vaccine that helps protect against the following diseases (these are diseases caused by the HPV Types in the vaccine (6, 11, 16, and 18)):
- Cervical cancer
- Abnormal and precancerous cervical lesions
- Abnormal and precancerous vaginal lesions
- Genital warts
Gardasil is indicated for girls and women ages 9 through 26. The vaccine is given as a series of three injections at 0, 2, and 6 months. Gardasil is intended to prevent, not treat, the above mentioned diseases.  However, you may benefit from Gardasil if you already have HPV. This is because most people are not infected with all four types of HPV contained in the vaccine. In clinical trials, individuals with one or more vaccine-related HPV types prior to vaccination were protected from disease caused by the remaining vaccine HPV types.
What about women of other ages and men?
The main purpose Gardasil is to protect women against the HPV types that cause cervical cancer.  Men are obviously not at risk for cervical cancer so, at this time, there are no efforts to vaccinate men.  Some men may choose, however, to get the vaccine simply for the partial protection it will give them against contracting genital warts. How effective the vaccine is at protecting men from genital warts has not yet been sufficiently studied. 
The age range for women is based on the fact that HPV is a sexually transmitted virus that most women encounter within the first 2 to 3 years of being sexually active.

Cervical Radiculopathy: Diagnosing a Pinched Nerve in the Neck

Word Count:

Summary:
A pinched nerve in the cervical spine can be a pain in the neck. It can also cause pain in the shoulder and arm, as well as numbness and weakness.


Keywords:
cervical,radiculopathy,root,pinch,disk,herniated,slipped,emg,mri,myelogram,electromyogram,nerve conduction,diagnosis,weakness,numbness


Article Body:
When a nerve is pinched in the neck’s spinal column, pain can be such a prominent symptom that more subtle, but diagnostic, aspects are overlooked.

By way of background, the spinal cord in the neck is connected to the nerves of the arms through pairs of spinal nerves. These spinal nerves, also known as roots or “radicles,” transmit incoming messages (electrical impulses) from the arms’ nerves concerning sensations of touch, pain, heat and cold on various patches of skin. Additionally, the cervical roots convey outgoing messages (also electrical impulses) through the arms’ nerves to their muscles, causing them to contract.

So when a cervical root is pinched, the pinch can cause not just pain, but--by blocking incoming and outgoing nerve impulses--it can also produce numbness of patches of skin, weakness of muscles, or both. The syndrome caused by the pinch in the neck is called cervical radiculopathy. The suffix “-pathy” means damage or impairment, so radiculopathy means damage or impairment of a radicle (root).

There are four pairs of cervical roots connecting the spinal cord to the arms’ nerves and they are named for the segment of spinal cord to which they are attached--C5, C6, C7 and C8, with the “C” designating cervical. While a pinch of any of these roots typically produces searing, deep pain in the shoulder which preoccupies the unfortunate person who has it, the shoulder pain is the least identifying or diagnostic component of the person’s symptoms.

The pain often shoots into the arm on the affected side, and certain movements of head and neck can worsen or reproduce this pain. While the arm component of the pain is less intense than that felt in the shoulder, its location is often the key to figuring out which root is pinched. Moreover, the pattern of numbness or weakness also varies according to which root is pinched. These patterns are almost identical from person to person and are as follows:

C5 impairment can send pain over the top of the shoulder in the first fourth of the arm which is also where numbness occurs, when present. When there is weakness, it involves the ability to elevate the arm sideways to the level of the shoulder or above. There are no good (rubber-hammer-type) reflexes the doctor can use to test this root.

C6 impairment can send pain as far as the thumb which is also where numbness occurs, when present. When there is weakness, it involves the ability to bend the elbow. The doctor can additionally test for C6 impairment with the biceps-reflex which involves striking a tendon in the crook of the elbow.

C7 impairment can send pain as far as the middle fingers which is also where numbness occurs, when present. When there is weakness, it involves the ability to straighten the elbow. The doctor can additionally test for C7 impairment with the triceps-reflex which involves striking a tendon on the back of the elbow.

C8 impairment can send pain as far as the little finger which is also where numbness occurs, when present. When there is weakness, it involves certain hand-movements, including the ability to join the tips of the thumb and the little finger and also to spread the fingers sideways. There are no good reflexes the doctor can use to test this root.

Having identified the typical syndromes, the next step is to understand what caused the pinch in the first place. It is typically one of two things--a herniated (“slipped”) disk or a bony spur. Younger adults are more likely to have a herniated disk and older adults are more likely to have a bony spur. Disks are soft structures sandwiched between each pair of spinal column bones (vertebral bodies). Their ordinarily tough outer membranes can weaken and allow extrusion of inner disk material--somewhat like toothpaste squeezed out of a tube--into the side-canals through which the spinal roots must pass. This traps and compresses them. Bony spurs, in contrast, are not soft at all. Instead, they are hard ridges of excess bone located on the edges of the back-bones. They are produced by arthritic degeneration. They, too, can trap and compress the spinal roots where they exit the spine.

How is cervical radiculopathy diagnosed? As described, the patient’s history and examination are often very informative and specific. When the pattern of nerve-impairment is ambiguous, tests of nerve and muscle electricity--called nerve conduction studies and electromyography--can help localize the impairment. These electrical tests can also detect impairments in the nerves of the arms which might mimic cervical radiculopathy, but require different medical management.

Until the 1980s myelograms made the best pictures of the pinches occurring in the spine. To perform a myelogram a doctor started with a lumbar puncture (also known as a spinal tap) in the patient’s lower back and injected x-ray dye into the watery space within the membrane covering the spinal cord and its roots. The patient was then tilted so that the dye ran into the corresponding space in the neck. Standard x-ray pictures showed the column of dye together with any indentations of the column caused by a herniated disk or bony spur.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was developed in the 1980s and created similar pictures but without having to do a spinal tap or dye infusion. Computed tomographic (CT) scans, developed in the 1970s, are generally the least useful of the spinal imaging techniques, except when an immediately preceding myelogram has been performed, in which case they can be strikingly helpful. Each of these these imaging tests has its strengths and weaknesses--none of them is always the best--so testing must be tailored to each case.

And how about treatment of this condition? Well, that’s a story deserving its own essay. Stay tuned.

Cervical Radiculopathy: Treating a Pinched Nerve in the Neck

Summary:
There are numerous treatments for a pinched spinal nerve in the neck. However, rigorous evidence of their benefit is scant.


Keywords:
cervical spine,spinal nerve,radiculopathy,cervical spondylosis,herniated disc,spinal surgery,Cloward,collar,physical therapy,physiotherapy,traction,spinal injection


Article Body:
Let's suppose that you have been diagnosed as having a pinched nerve in your neck, also known as cervical radiculopathy. If so, you probably have pain in the neck and one shoulder. The pain might radiate into your arm and you might have weakness or numbness in the arm as well. Moving your neck in certain positions probably worsens the pain.

If you're a younger adult, the pinch could be due to a herniated (slipped) disc. Discs are the soft spacers that separate each pair of stacked neck-bones (vertebrae). If you're an older adult, the pinch is more likely due to a bony spur (spondylosis). In either case, you're in good company. A survey in Sicily showed 3.5 active cases at any one time of cervical radiculopathy per population of 100,000. In Rochester, Minnesota, another survey showed 85 new cases each year of cervical radiculopathy per population of 100,000.

Let's say that your doctor has evaluated you thoroughly by taking a history of your symptoms and performing a physical examination. Perhaps with the additional help of an MRI of your cervical spine (neck) and electrical tests of nerve and muscle function (nerve conduction studies and electromyography) the diagnosis of cervical radiculopathy is deemed definite. Furthermore, there is no sign that the spinal cord itself is pinched. Now what?

Now what, indeed. Choosing a treatment for this condition is far from straightforward. Out of hundreds of published medical reports concerning treatment of cervical radiculopathy, most are case reports or case series. A "case series" translates roughly as: "We gave six patients in a row the same treatment and five of them got better." What can be concluded from a study of this kind? Did the treatment make the patients better or would they have improved anyway? We don't know.

The missing ingredient here is a comparison group of untreated or differently treated individuals known as a control group. The other mark of a quality study is that the chosen treatment is randomized, meaning that the research subjects agreed in advance to be assigned to one treatment group or another based on the equivalent of a coin-toss. So out of the hundreds of published studies involving treatment of this common condition, how many were randomized controlled trials? Unfortunately, the answer is just one.

Liselott Persson, Carl-Axel Carlsson and Jane Carlsson at the University Hospital of Lund, Sweden, randomly allocated 81 patients who had symptoms of cervical radiculopathy present for at least three months to any of three treatments -- surgery, physical therapy or a cervical collar. The patients ranged from 28 to 64 years old and 54% of them were male. The surgeons used the so-called Cloward procedure, removing fragments of protruding discs and spurs through an incision in the front of the neck, and then fusing two neck-bones together by means of a bone-graft. Physical therapy involved 15 sessions over a span of three months and consisted of whatever the physical therapist considered appropriate, variously including any of the following: heat application, cold application, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, manipulation, exercise and education. In the cervical collar group, patients wore rigid, shoulder-resting collars every day for three months. Additionally, some of the subjects wore soft collars overnight.

How did the study turn out? Three of the subjects who were assigned to surgery refused the procedure because they had already improved on their own. For statistical purposes their outcomes were included with those who actually received the operation. After three months the surgery and physical therapy groups reported, on average, less pain. After an additional 12 months patients in all three groups had less pain than at the beginning of the study and the outcomes of each treatment were statistically alike. Measurements of mood and overall function following treatment were likewise equal among the groups.

So, over the long haul, no treatment was better than the others. Of course, within each group some patients did better or worse than others and this spread of outcomes was not reflected in the overall averages. In fact, five patients in the collar group and one patient in the physical therapy group went on to receive surgery owing to lack of satisfactory improvement. In addition, eight patients in the surgery group underwent a second operation that in one case was due to a complication of the first operation.

With this Swedish study representing the only rigorous investigation of treatment outcomes in cervical radiculopathy, there are a number of unanswered questions. For example, what are the effects on cervical radiculopathy of painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs, local injections, systematic traction or other forms of surgery? We don't know. What happens if there is no treatment whatsoever? We don't know the answer to that question either.

Thus, in the care of individual patients there is a yin-yang balancing act between the medical edict of "Above all, do no harm" and the practical dictum of "Do what you have to do." This balancing act usually means starting with less intrusive treatments like drugs and physical therapy. If symptoms fail to improve or become unbearable, an operation may be helpful.

title:Cetyl Myristoleate for Arthrtis: Science or Speculation

article:

There are a lot of fabulous stories about Cetyl Myristoleate (also known as CMO or CM) floating across the Internet. Mine is one of them. There have been a number of articles published in little known journals or magazines. There have been four small booklets published.  One making fantastic claims, all four filled with anecdotal evidence but offering no real research to back up the claims. There are a number of Doctors sharing the results they are having with their patients but so does every other wonder-working product.  The question is, are there any scientific studies to back up any of these claims?  The answer is yes.  To date there are several patient studies and two double blind studies completed.  I will mention the three most prominent below.
Dr Len Sands of the San Diego Clinic completed the first human study on the effectiveness on Cetyl Myristoleate in 1995. There were 48 arthritis patients in this study.  All but two showed significant improvement in articular mobility (80% or better) and reduction of pain (70% or better). Obviously the study had its flaws. One doctor conducted the study, there was no control group and the number of participants was small. Even so, it suggested to many that maybe there was some hope here and that more scientific studies should follow.
The first double blind study followed two years later. Dr. H. Siemandi conducted a double blind study under the auspices of the Joint European Hospital Studies Program.  There were 431 patients in the study, 106 who received cetyl myristoleate, 99 who received cetyl myristoleate, and glucosamine, sea cucumber, and hydrolyzed cartilage and 226 who received a placebo. Clinical assessment included radiological test and other studies. Results were 63% improvement for the cetyl myristoleate group, 87% for the cetyl myristoleate plus glucosamine group and 15% for the placebo group.
In August of 2002, a double blind study was published in the Journal or Rheumatology.  The study included sixty-four patients with chronic knee OA. Half of the patients received a cetyl myristoleate complex and half a placebo. Evaluations included physician assessment, knee range of motion with goniometry, and the Lequesne Algofunctional Index (LAI). The conclusion was that the CM group saw significant improvement while the placebo group saw little to none. In fact in their conclusion the state that CM “may be an alternative to the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for the treatment of OA”.
Advanced Medical Systems & Design, Ltd completed the last study I would like to mention in Oct 2001.  It was not a double blind study but the study included 1814 arthritis patients. The results showed that over 87% of the subjects had greater than 50% recovery and over 65% of those showed from 75% - 100% recovery following a sixteen day regimen. I know that this is not the most scientific study but a study this large does suggest that there could be a positive benefit to the use of CM in the treatment of arthritis.
Conclusion:  There is mounting evidence that CM can be effective in the treatment of many forms of arthritis. While it is true that the evidence from these three studies can not be considered conclusive, it is a beginning. It should challenge you to think out side the box and consider that just because it did not come from a drug company does not mean that it will not work.  With over 10,000 people a year dying from Nsaids would it not be great to find a safer and more effective product. Especially with the cost of prescription treatments for arthritis costing into the hundreds and good Cetyl Myristoleate products can be found for between $20 and $40.

I am a strong believer in Cetyl Myristoleate for the treatment of arthritis. For the last three years I have been researching and writing about Cetyl Myristoleate. I am constantly searching for new research and contact and interview every doctor I can find that works with it.  The purpose of the article is to evaluate the claims made about Cetyl Myristoleate on the myriad of web sites that sell it. It you want more information on the research that documents the effectiveness of Cetyl Myristoleate then do a search for my article, “Cetyl Myristoleate: Science or Speculation”.
Cetyl Myristoleate is an Immune Modulator.  This is a tough question.  We do not have any medical research yet that documents that it is an immune modulator. Many doctors believe that it is based on observations of their patients. Some people respond so well it appears that the benefits go beyond joint lubrication and a decreases in inflammation. Base on these results some doctors theorize that it is helping to correct some peoples immune systems.  While this sounds wonderful it is a bold statement to make. I am not ready to call it an immune modulator.
Cetyl Myristoleate is a cure for arthritis. This is not only a bogus claim it is a lie. Not only is it a lie it is illegal to make that claim. If you are at a web site that makes this claim, leave, this person is not the kind of person you want to do business with. They need to be reported to the Federal Trade Commission.
All you need is one 15 or 20 day protocol. There are several companies that make this type of claim. You will notice that the companies that make this claim are among the most expensive.  I believe that they use this to justify their high prices. Who would pay this price on a regular bases. While the double blind studies show that many people start finding relief in this amount of time, they were all short term studies and did not evaluate how long the results lasted.  Every doctor I have talked to has disagreed with this statement. The people who find relief from Cetyl Myristoleate usually start seeing good results by the two week mark. But they continue to improve for the next two to four weeks. Almost everyone who discontinues use finds that with in a couple of weeks their symptoms begin to return. But they also find that once they max out their benefit they need much less to maintain that level of relief.
Cetyl Myristoleate helps 97% if the people who use it. I have seen this claim several times. It is simply not true. The research does not back it up and neither do those doctors who use it in practice. The percentage is closer to 70%. Of course the percentage changes depending on the type of arthritis you have.  With nearly 100 types of arthritis nothing is going to work well on every type.
Cetyl Myristoleate is an anti aging agent. This is a powerful marketing tool. Every one wants to look and stay young. There is no research to back up this claim. Some of the doctors I have talked to believe it base on their observations. I have over a dozen family members and friends who take CM faithfully and none of us look younger. Yet almost all of us feel younger because we can now do things again that we had to give up because of our arthritis. If this is what they are talking about I concur. But if they are claiming it will make you younger or keep you from aging I think they are stretching it.
It is necessary to take digestive enzymes with Cetyl Myristoleate. This is a hard one. I personally do not think everyone does. Some people have a hard time digesting fats. If taking CM causes you stomach upset then you need to take a digestive enzyme. Make sure it has lipase because it is the enzyme that digests fat.
Cetyl Myristoleate will help you grow new cartilage. This is another unfounded claim. There is nothing in CM to help you grow cartilage. Once the inflammation is down then your body may find it easier to replace the cartilage damaged by the inflammation.
Will Cetyl Myristoleate help me with my arthritis? I would like to end the article with the question most ask of me. The answer is I do not know. All I can say is the research and my experience and the experience of the doctors I have talked to says that there is a 60% to 70% chance. Be reasonable about your expectations. CM is not going to repair bone damage, remove calcium deposits or repair other types of damage created by your arthritis. If you decide to try it do not pay too much. There is no need to pay $50, $80, $100 dollars or more. There are several good products in the $20 to $50 range. If the first bottle does not work for you do not waste your money on a second.

The chakras are different coloured energy centres that originate from seven different points in our body. Chakra is a Sanskrit (East Indian) word that means "Wheel". For millennia the chakras have been visualized as round balls, blossoms or spheres of light that can open, close, darken, brighten and spin! The location of each of the seven chakras represents a different aspect of human experience. Our emotions, ability to connect with others and physical health are thought to be reflected in the condition of each chakra.
Seeing your own chakras requires mental focus and powers of meditation. Remember these are imaginary entities that were invented by great mystics thousands of years before medical technology. The manipulation of these spheres or wheels of light, particularly the brightening and opening of them is thought, by many, to relieve a variety of ailments.
There are seven main chakra centres in the human body and the correspond with the seven colours of the rainbow or light spectrum:
The Red Chakra, also often referred to as the Root, First or Base chakra is at the base of the trunk of the body and is thought to correspond to the sex drive and to primal drives such as the desire to procreate, survive and destroy. This is the chakra to work on if you are having troubles with your health.
The Orange Chakra, sometimes called the Second, Sexual or Spleen chakra is in the abdomen and relates to the lower digestive organs. It corresponds to our ability to physically digest and eliminate food, emotionally digest events and process them in a healthy way and emotions such as joy or affection. This is the chakra to work on if you are having trouble letting go.
The Yellow Chakra, sometimes called the Third, Stomach or Solar plexus chakra is located in the upper stomach area just below the rib cage. It is the centre where we connect to others on an astral level and it relates to our abilities to transform or manifest events.
The Green Chakra is located in the chest and is related to the lungs and heart. It is sometimes called the Fourth or Heart chakra. It represents the flow of energy and flow of love in our lives as well as our ability to connect to others.
The Blue Chakra, sometimes called the Fifth, Thyroid or Throat chakra relates to the immune system, the regulation of hormones. It represents our ability to communicate effectively with others as well as creative and personal expression.
The Indigo Chakra, sometimes known as the Sixth chakra or the Third Eye, is located just slightly above and between the eyebrows on the forehead. It is related to the pituitary gland and mental and spiritual processes, as well as intuition, second sight.
The Violet Chakra, also sometimes known as the Crown chakra, the Seventh chakra, the White chakra or the lotus chakra is located at the top of the head. It is thought to be the gateway or connection to the spirit world, ascended masters and the higher self. It is the receptor of divine wisdom and divine inspiration.
When functioning well, the chakras are thought to be a conduit for the constant flow of energy through out our bodies. If these chakras are blocked, slowed in their spinning, darkened or not working, then you can correct this imbalance by imagining them being cleared from negative energies such as resentment, fear or trauma. Tuning up your chakras can make an enormous difference to your sense of well-being in general as they conduct the natural flow of energy through our bodies. Chakras that are blocked are thought to cause physical disease and emotional and spiritual dis-ease. Common blockages are negative emotions, the desire to hurt, being emotionally hurt, and the holding on to of fears and resentment and sometimes past life issues. The chakras interact with each other in a constant dancing of the spheres that extends outside our bodies. They exist in a constant state of renewal that can be enhanced by meditation, creative visualization, light working and breath work.

Chamomile - A Natural Sleeping Aid

Summary:
This article tackles the area of chamomile wherein it helps depress the hectic    and stressful feeling of the body, therefore making the person feel good, calm,    relaxed, and ready to sleep. It not only induces sleep, but also helps in settling    upset stomachs.


Keywords:
natural sleeping aid


Article Body:
There is no better feeling like ending a long hard day's work by lying down and crawling under the cool sheets of a soft bed, closing one's eyes, away from the harsh and stressful scenes of reality. For many people, the only time that they can be at peace with themselves and be truly alone is during the blissful time of sleep.

There can be a number of things that might interfere with one's sleep.  Stress due to financial or relationship problems, sickness, and even other unknown causes could make a person suffer from sleeplessness.   For people who suffer from sleeplessness or even insomnia, the immediate source of relief is often sought in sleeping aids.  Still, these people remain reluctant about using such medications due to known side effects.  For them, the only thing that matters is to have normal sleep, and wake up in the morning feeling good and refreshed, ready for another day of work --- hopefully, without the need to use any chemicals or medicines the night before. 

So what are the alternatives to sleep aid medications? 

One such alternative is trying an all-natural option called Chamomile Tea. This kind of tea is recognized as one of the best all natural sleeping aid beverages in the market.  The typical day at work comes with a big serving of stress.  Millions of busy career men and women try to get through the day with a huge cup of coffee.  The caffeine is supposed to keep them awake, alert, and ready for the challenges of the workplace.  But after office hours, they can try to unwind by sipping the natural sleeping aid that can be found in a serving of chamomile tea.  This tea is the perfect counterbalance for settling down the nerves before going to bed. Chamomile tea has been shown to work as a mild depressant, thus bringing the nerves down to a manageable level before trying to sleep. Adding to the depressant effects on the nervous system, this natural sleeping aid can help for those who are having a bad experience with caffeine which can wreak havoc on one's digestive system, leading to an upset stomach at night, particularly when lying down. Chamomile tea has properties that are known to settle the stomach, as well as the nerves.

There is a little disagreement within the scientific community as to whether chamomile provides the effects that have long been attributed to it.  Either way, while they are all out to know more on the exact effects and properties, it woudn't hurt to give chamomile a try. There are few if any reports of adverse effects about this natural sleeping aid, so perhaps sitting with a warm cup of chamomile and finding time to relax would help. 

The best timing for a cup of chamomile would usually be a half-hour to an hour before one intends to go to bed. In addition to chamomile, try avoiding distractions and stimuli. Turn off the television, minimize interactions with other family members,  and avoid other things distractive or those that are not conducive to sleep. Reading a book can also be an excellent way to stir up the sleeping hormones.

Summary:
Inspite of modern advances in medicine, some herbal treatment remains to be popular in the treatment of various ailments.

Article Body:
Herbal medicine is a traditional practice of treating ailments with the use of plants and its extracts.  We all know that long before the advent of medical science and technology, people in ancient times would rely on the efficacy of certain plants and its extracts in curing various ailments such as stomach pain, head ache, skin infections as well as in the treatment of wounds.  The use of herbs as remedy to treat many types of diseases remains to be popular even in this new millenium where significant advances in medicine have been made alongside increased sophistication in medical technology and pharmacology.

Nowadays, herbal medicines are no longer limited to the traditional fresh or dried plants.  They come in the form of tablets, capsules, powders or teas.  The scent and flavors of these herbs have therapeutic benefits such as the chamomile plant which can be an effective natural muscle relaxant.

Medicinal Chamomile

Chamomile is very popular in Europe and has been widely used as for thousands of years as treatment for a number of ailments, such as sleep disorders, stress, anxiety, depression, digestion problems, intestinal conditions, skin infections or inflammation (including eczema), wound healing, infantile colic, teething pains, and diaper rash.

There are several varieties of the chamomile herbs. Chamomile varieties with medicinal properties include the German Chamomile (Matricaria Recutita) and Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum Nobile)). Both varieties are known to have the same medicinal properties but the German Chamomile has a less bitter taste quality while the Roman Chamomile is known for its sweet and unique scent especially when warmed up by the sun. A special blue oil component, called azulenes, is responsible for its sweet, distinctive aroma.  Other active compositions include bisabol, flavonoids, apiginine, luteoline, chamazulene, matricine and flavonoids.  But regardless of variety or type, the chamomile's main characteristic is its sedative properties or effects.

Sedative Properties     

Though there are a number of over-the-counter muscle relaxants and sleeping pills that are readily available, some people still prefer the soothing and relaxing effects that a chamomile treatment brings. 
In the United States, chamomile is popularly known as an ingredient in herbal tea preparations usually advertised for its mild sedating effects.  The sedative properties of chamomile are used in sleep disorders and as a muscle relaxant in the treatment of such illnesses as menstrual pain, neuralgia, tooth ache and tension headaches. Taking Chamomile Tea before going to bed has long been used to induce sleep in children as well as in adults and promotes a very deep, relaxed, and restful sleep. Aside from aiding in the treatment of insomia, the flower essence of Chamomile is known to relieve stress, tension, anxiety, and depression among others.

Aside from its sedative properties, chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties that is useful in reducing the inflammation caused by gout and arthritis when taken internally.  Moreover, it can also have external application such as adding chamomile essence in your bath to relieve hemorrhoid problems; as a chamomile wash for inflamed eyes; or as an anti-inflammatory agent for inflamed gums, inflamed skin conditions, and sore throat.

The third effect of chamomile is its carminative properties which brings about a calming action on the stomach and eases digestive problems, minimizing heartburn cases, reducing hyper acidity conditions and inhibits the formation of ulcers. 
Aside from being used as a healing remedy for hysteria and other nervous afflictions, Chamomile has been known for other benefits such as reviving a withered plant in a vase or when planted in a garden, it can heal the ailing plants and prevent disease in other plants that is why it is aptly called a “plant's physician.”

However, although chamomile has a reputation as a gentle medicinal plant and has been widely use especially in Europe,  there is not enough reliable research in humans and  there are many reports of allergic reactions in people after eating or coming into contact with chamomile preparations.  It is best to still seek medical to avoid possible drug interaction which may lead to life-threatening situations.

Summary:
The article is about Chamomile, a so-called sacred herb that

has been in use since the ancient times because of its many

curative and healing powers. This article features the many

benefits of the herb which is also best known as the best

herbal muscle relaxer. Chamomile is the safest and confident

choice.


Keywords:
herbal muscle relaxer


Article Body:
It is probably the most widely consumed herbal tea in the

world. Prove to the fact that over one million cups of this

kind of herb tea are ingested worldwide each day. Chamomile is

the name for various related plants of the family Asteraceae,

the aster family. The word chamomile is derived from the Greek

word “chamos” meaning ground and “melos” which means apple,

which refers to the plant's low growing habit and the fact

that the fresh blooms are somewhat apple-scented. Chamomile

has been used for centuries in teas as a mild, relaxing sleep

aid, treatment for fevers, colds, stomach ailments, and as an

anti-inflammatory, to name only a few of its therapeutic uses.

The plant according to extensive scientific research over the

past 20 years has confirmed many of the traditional uses and

established pharmacological mechanisms for the plant's

therapeutic activities, including anti-peptic, antispasmodic,

antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-allergenic activity. The

Chamomile flower  has also been hailed as a sacred herb from

early on.  The nervous system benefits from Chamomile tea

through its calming effects. Muscles in the body contract and

relax in response to chemical signals delivered through the

bloodstream. Muscles that are having difficulty relaxing have

a chemical in them that is signaling the muscle to contract.

This herbal muscle relaxer soothes muscles by increasing

certain amino acids.  With the way humans depend on their

muscle function, it is no wonder muscle pain can be a very

uncomfortable situation. Some muscle pain sufferers experience

manageable pain only causing stiffness and soreness. For

others, the pain may be debilitating and cause tenderness and

inflamed areas. Doctors often first recommend applying heat or

cold as well as rest and basic stretching. However if that

fails to work, an herbal muscle relaxer such as Chamomile is

the safest and confident choice.

Although best known as a herbal muscle relaxer, chamomile is

also believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory

capabilities. The plant's healing properties come from its

daisy-like flowers, which contain volatile oils including

bisabolol, bisabolol oxides A and B, and matricin, as well as

flavonoids and other therapeutic substances. Chamomile may be

used internally or externally. As a popular remedy, it may be

thought of as the European counterpart of ginseng. Chamomile

tea benefits the muscles along the digestive tract, allowing

digestion to take place more efficiently. It helps muscles

relax in other parts of the body, which helps people who

suffer from insomnia fall asleep naturally. Chamomile tea even

has the benefit of reducing gas.  Chamomile flowers have also

been proven to have anti-inflammatory properties. Cosmetic

products such as lotions that are infused with chamomile are

used to reduce skin diseases such as eczema and other skin

inflammation. It also greatly help repair skin on over-worked

and over-exposed hands. The chamomile flower extracts help

tone and strengthen delicate ski tissue. Drinking chamomile

tea before bedtime has been followed for centuries on account

of its ability to calm the nervous system and soothe

gastrointestinal disorders. It's mild flavor makes chamomile

tea a favorite beverage with many. From the time of the early

Egyptians and Greeks until today, Chamomile is still

considered as a sacred herb because of its many curative and

healing properties.

So, you are at the point where you realize that you have Binge Eating Disorder and you want to make a change in your life for the better…  But what do you do next?  If you are like how I was, a mixture of emotions used to begin to fill my head about what my new self would be like.  I was excited about getting on with my life and making Binge Eating Disorder a thing of the past.  But I was also a little nervous about letting Binge Eating Disorder go.  Why?  Not because I wanted to eat myself to death, but because I didn’t know any other way.  I had turned to food for about nine years of my life and that was all I knew.  I didn’t know how to deal with anything that was going on in my life.  I didn’t know what I would do without bingeing to make myself feel better.  What would I now do when I was happy, sad, bored, excited, or scared?  It was definitely a scary time for me to wonder what my new life would be like.

The most important thing that I did was to first transform my feelings toward change.  When most people think of change, they are scared because they are chartering along unknown territory.  They are not sure of what the future has in store for them.  They start questioning whether or not they are truly ready to take on this risk. 

I knew that I had to erase everything negative in my mind about change and focus on what good would come from it.  There were so many things that I was able to think of.  For example, I would be a healthier person.  I would feel better about myself.  I would start to like myself.  I wouldn’t feel like I was leading a double or secret life.  I would not worry about when or how I would binge next.  I would finally have a normal relationship with food.  Most importantly, I would finally be happy. 

When your negative thoughts of change start to turn into good thoughts, change doesn’t seem like such a bad thing.  It certainly doesn’t seem like something to be scared of.  I found myself starting to get excited about changing my life.  I couldn’t wait to see what was going to unravel and become my life. 

After the decision has been made to make changes in your life, next will come motivation.  Motivation is the driving force inside us all that push us to better ourselves.  Motivation is what keeps on refueling us and reminding us what it is that we truly desire.  Positive change is what produces positive motivation within each and every one of us.  When you feel inspired to change the bingeing in your life, motivation will kick it up a notch to push you in the right direction.  You will begin to do whatever it takes to achieve your desire result: no more bingeing!

Once positive changes in your life start to happen, you will want more.  You will feel motivated to keep on pushing forward, no matter how hard the obstacle may seem.  It is motivation, along with hard work and dedication that is going to create the new path for your new life of no more binge eating.

You can now say goodbye to your old glasses and wear contact lens. Many people feel that contact lenses are very inconvenient to wear, and that they might not be as effective as the glasses. But that is not so. Contact lenses serve the same purpose as that of conventional glasses. They should be placed in the cornea of your eye. Once you get the hang of it, they are very easy to wear, and unlike glasses, they can be worn anywhere and everywhere. You can even swim wearing them.

Before you get your contact lenses, you should first see an ophthalmologist. Your eyesight may be good, and you may not be wearing glasses, but it is still advisable that you get your eyes examined before going for it, to see if it's fine for you to wear contacts. Contact lenses need to be fitted properly by an optician first before you do it yourself.

There are various types of contact lenses available, and the most popular ones are the colored contact lenses. Many people go for them to change their eye color. Contact lenses are basically divided into two types:

• Soft contact lenses: These lenses contain from 25% to 79% water. They are easy to adapt and are very comfortable. They need to be replaced every few months.
• Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lenses: These lenses are more durable, but they take longer to adapt compared to soft contacts. They are cheaper, and are said to offer better vision than soft lenses and can be replaced in a couple of years.

Colored contacts:

Colored contact lenses are used by many to change the color of the eyes, as they can change the appearance of your face to some extent. Wearing the right color can do magic. Some people wear them instead of their usual glasses when going to parties or on special occasions. There are 4 types of colored contacts:

1. Visibility tints: This is the light blue or green tint added to the lenses so you can find them easily if you drop them, and also to help you see them better during insertion and removal. This color tint does not affect eye color.
2. Enhancement tints: It is a solid, translucent tint added to the lens to enhance the existing color of your eyes.
3. Opaque color tints: These are solid color tints added to completely change the color of eyes.
4. Light-filtering tints: These lenses are so designed that they enhance only some particular colors like optic yellow, the color of golf balls, tennis balls etc. They are made especially for sports players so that the ball stands out against the background making it easier for the player to focus.

Novelty Contact Lenses

These contact lenses are perfect for any dramatic effect and are very popular during Halloween, so they are called Halloween Lenses. They are special effects contacts, which would go perfectly with your Halloween costume. Novelty contacts are often used in movies, be it the werewolf you saw or the Dracula, or the black witch; all of them would be wearing these lenses. However; they should be worn with caution. Buy them only from a reputable distributor. As they are readily available anywhere, you should be careful, as chances are that these cheap, duplicate lenses may cause severe eye injury.

Safety Tips:

Always follow the manufacturer's advice about when to discard contact lenses, or else you may be inviting trouble, causing serious eye infection. Never exchange lenses with anybody, as this can transmit harmful bacteria causing infection in the eyes. Never wear contacts unless they are prescribed and monitored by an optician. Follow a good hygiene routine to prevent eye irritation or infection, and always store the lenses in proper commercially prepared sterile solutions.

Keep in mind that because of the way the eye reacts, you could require more frequent replacement of contact lenses than what is recommended.

Change: Major Source of Stress and Anxiety

Word Count:

Summary:
While change is inevitable, anxiety and stress are the natural response to any
changes in our environment. Anxiety is defined as a feeling of uneasiness and apprehension over something that is unrecognized or unknown, or to a situation or event that one does not have control over. That is why change is a major source of stress that causes bodily and mental tension which leads to anxiety.

Almost everyday, new discoveries and inventions take the headlines. Modern day living has caused our lifestyles to adapt to the radical changes brought about by advancement in science and technology. And along with these changes come stress and anxiety.
While change is inevitable, stress is our natural response to any changes in our environment. Normally, people develop anxiety whenever they encounter a situation that they have no control over; or a person or object that causes feelings of uneasiness and apprehension.  People are often afraid, worried, or anxious over something that is unrecognized or unknown. That is why change is a major source of stress that causes bodily and mental tension --- which eventually leads to anxiety.
Change poses a challenge let go of the past, especially the comfortable, old ways of doing things. Stress and anxiety are normal parts of everyday life. Both can motivate an individual to be productive and rise to the challenge of tough situations. However, too much stress and too much anxiety can be harmful and may cause physical, emotional, and psychological problems like infections, heart disease, and depression. However, it is important to realize that what can be stressful to one person may not necessarily cause an adverse effect on another person.
There is such a thing as a positive, good, and even beneficial form of stress.  Good stress is something that helps a person prepare mentally, physically, and emotionally to confront a certain situation, person, or object. Stress can actually motivate a person to think, develop a strategy, and decide on an appropriate response or course of action. However, when this persists on a long-term basis, it will still cause emotional, physical, and health problems.
There is a difference between anxiety as a feeling or experience, and an anxiety disorder as a psychiatric diagnosis. A person may be anxious without having an anxiety disorder. In the same way, a person facing a clear and present danger or a realistic fear is not usually considered to be in a state of anxiety. In addition, anxiety frequently occurs as a symptom in other categories of psychiatric disturbance.
Anxiety may somehow be related to fear, but they are not the same thing. Fear is described as a direct, focused response to a specific event or object, and the person is consciously aware of it. When someone points a loaded gun at you, it is expected to feel fear. There is a recognition of fear when you are at the beach and you see a tsunami approaching. Anxiety, however, is usually vague and not focused. It is something that's difficult to explain or find a specific cause. Anxiety may be experienced in the present but stem from an event or person that produced pain and fear in the past. The anxious person may not be consciously aware of the original source of the feeling.
To manage stress and anxiety, one must look at the world through new lenses. While there seems to be an illusion that you can manage change by controlling the world around you, on the contrary, change is most effective if it is managed from within.
As the cliché goes, “...the only constant in life is change.” Accept changes with an open mind and a plan. Look at problems in a different perspective. When you think of it as a situation that needs attention, you will be able to set up goals to improve it. Be flexible in the face of life's everyday challenges. Have inner peace and live life one day at a time. Everyone needs time for woolgathering.

When treating high blood pressure it helps a lot if it is detected in an early phase, because it appears long time before its symptoms and complications do.If it's detected early, much of the damage it does to the organs in the body can be prevented, and lowering blood pressure can be done easier. This is the first step that should be taken in high blood pressure treatment.

Afterwards, when what is called "pre-hypertension" is discovered, several other things should be done in order to lower the blood pressure.For example, patients should change their lifestyle quite often. The doctors recommend this for pre-hypertensive people. They are stating that life-style changes helps lowering blood pressure a lot for them. If your blood pressure reading starts exceeding 140/90 mm Hg, you can treat yourself by changing your lifestyle and taking the prescribed medicines. This, together with quitting smoking and drinking significantly helps lowering blood pressure. People must be made aware of these facts in order to help preventing and/or lowering blood pressure, and to reduce the risks of heart attacks and kidney failures.

As said before the blood pressure reading is very important when trying to prevent hypertension. For example, if you discover that the diastolic pressure is situated somewhere between 85 and 90 mm Hg you must consult a doctor and follow a different treatment, because there have been cases where people with blood pressure of these values suffered from end organ damage, and for some patients aged around 65 years-old the risk of cadiovascular damage increased when their diastolic blood pressure increased.These patients were suffering from diabetes and were smoking. Therefore it is recommended to immediately visit a doctor and lower your blood pressure if the readings indicate such levels.

Besides lifestyle changes of course, proper medication has an important role in lowering blood pressure.Medication should be administered right when high blood pressure is discovered in order for it to have its best effects in lowering blood pressure.If you suffer from high blood pressure and also diabetes there are special drugs that help treating both in the same time. Therefore, the conclusion is that in order to successfully and quickly lower blood pressure it must be discovered and treated while it is still in an early stage.

Cosmetic dentistry is very popular right now because people are starting to realize that a cosmetic dentist isn't anything you should be afraid of. A cosmetic dentist can actually help you feel better about yourself in a variety of ways. Because a lot of who we are is how we feel about ourselves, we can't afford to have a smile that we aren't comfortable with. Your smile is the easiest way to show people what a warm person you are, but when you aren't feeling good about your smile it's hard to let that warm side show through the way you want to. A cosmetic can easily turn your aging or unattractive smile into something beautiful.
A cosmetic dentist is still a dentist; it's just a dentist who has special training in more than the general removal of cavities, braces, and the like. A cosmetic dentist is someone who has been given training to help you feel better about your smile, while keeping the integrity of your teeth in tact. A cosmetic can perform very simple acts such as teeth whitening to make you feel better about your smile, or something more complicated such as porcelain veneers or tooth shaping. A cosmetic dentist can work with you to formulate a plan that will give you what you are looking for, while still keeping your teeth and your gums healthy.
While the idea of going to a cosmetic dentist may be quite exciting despite the dental procedures, you should really do your research about any dentist that you choose to go to. Before you let your cosmetic dentist do anything to you, it's wise to ask for pictures and references of people who have had the same procedure done by the same dentist. There is a lot that can make you feel great where cosmetic dentistry is concerned, but if you aren't careful you can end up with a dentist who doesn't really know what they are doing which can leave you, your teeth, and your self image suffering as a result. So, before you get started ask your cosmetic dentist for pictures and referrals and don't worry, the good ones won't take offense to this request!
If you are self-conscious about your dull teeth and you think they could be whiter, a cosmetic dentist can help you out by whitening your teeth. Tooth whitening is very popular and minimally invasive. There are several techniques for tooth whitening, the most popular using whitening gel, and lights to whiten teeth. With just a couple whitening appointments your teeth can be as white as they were when you were a kid, or even whiter! It's amazing how much whitening your teeth can change the way you look and feel, so if you think you might like to have whiter teeth get with your cosmetic dentist today to discuss the options available to you.
If you think your teeth are white and straight but they just don't look all that great, you might want to talk to a dentist about tooth shaping or even gum shaping. These two procedures actually can change the shape of your teeth and your gums, changing your smile completely. It's amazing how much a little tooth or gum shaping will change your smile, and this may be an option for you.
One of the more invasive techniques is porcelain veneers, which require the actual tooth to be ground down to fit a veneer over it. Porcelain veneers are great for people with poor teeth, awkward shape, and just in need of some help. Porcelain veneers aren't something you can change your mind about later, so you need to be sure that your cosmetic dentist really believes that it is necessary to perform this procedure.
Remember that a new smile will make you feel great, but your new smile will only be as good as your cosmetic dentist. So, do your research and then look forward to your new healthy and beautiful smile.

title:Changing Your Salt Habit Starts at the Grocery Store

article:

(ARA) - Many medical experts would agree that being worth your weight in salt in today's society is not quite as valuable as it may have been at one time. In fact, researchers and doctors across the world have found that a diet high in sodium contributes to a number of health risks, including high blood pressure.
This is not breaking news to many Americans, especially those already at a high risk of heart disease, stroke and certain kinds of cancers. The number of Americans at a high risk for high blood pressure alone has grown to nearly 50 million. It also may not come as a surprise to the many people whose doctors have continuously recommended a low-sodium diet in an attempt to decrease these and other health conditions. But this may be harder than simply removing the salt shaker from the dinner table.
Over 70 percent of a person's salt intake is derived from processed foods, so skipping that sprinkling of salt at dinner is not a sufficient way to cut the salt in your diet. Using salt substitutes or alternatives like NoSalt is an easy way to add flavor to your food without the sodium. Another way to prevent sodium from entering your kitchen and your body is to keep your eyes open at the food source itself, the grocery store.
Following these grocery shopping tips can help reduce the salt in you and your family's diet:
Always Read the Label
Salt is a substance with many different names. So even if you make the extra effort to read food labels and search for the amount of salt in the product, it can be difficult to determine. The following list contains a few of salt's aliases: sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate, sodium benzoate, monosodium glutamate (MSG), sodium nitrate and disodium. Other products with a large sodium content include hydrolyzed vegetable protein, soy sauce, miso and brine.
Interpreting the Labels
The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is making an effort to create public awareness of the amount of salt in store products. "By appropriately labeling, we are attempting to inform the public and those who want to keep their sodium intake down as to the amount of sodium they are consuming," says Ida Yoder, a chemist with the FDA's over-the-counter drug products division.
But some salt descriptors are not so cut and dry. Use the flowing list as a guideline to help determine the approximate number of milligrams of salt in a product:
Sodium free - Contains less than 5 mg of sodium per serving
Very low sodium - 35 mg or less per serving
Low Sodium - 140 mg or less per serving
Reduced Sodium - Contains at least 25 percent less sodium than the original product
Without added salt - No salt is added during processing to a product which would normally have salt added
No salt added - Unsalted
Fresh is Best
Avoid processed foods in the grocery store and head directly to the fresh fruit and vegetable aisle instead. Rather than adding salt to these fresh food items while cooking, use unsalted butter or salt alternatives. Many salt substitutes, such as NoSalt, are sodium-free but taste like the real thing. "By incorporating salt substitutes and other spices into your cooking, you can still add flavor to food while skipping the sodium," says Janet Andreas, a Home Economist with Reckitt Benckiser. She also recommends using a variety of spice substitutes as salt alternatives like Seasoned NoSalt.
If you do buy canned vegetables, rinsing them in water for one minute can reduce their sodium content by 40 percent. Also, it is important to resist the temptation of fast food, which also usually has a high salt content.
While making these tips habits on your trips to the grocery store can help reduce your sodium intake, health professionals recommend an even larger, overall change in diet. One diet that specifically addresses the issue of hypertension is the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH), a diet formulated by clinicians and researchers at Harvard University.
The DASH diet is based on increased servings of fruits and vegetables and the inclusion of low fat dairy products, lean meats, poultry and fish. The diet provides the right amount of fiber, adequate vitamins and antioxidants while limiting sodium and fat intake.
Consulting with your physician is the best and safest ways to address high blood pressure and the treatment of other health concerns. But by taking the initiative to start eating a healthier diet, you begin taking responsibility for your own health and well-being.
Reckitt Benckiser, the makers of NoSalt, has published a brochure on how to manage sodium intake and live an overall healthier lifestyle. To receive a free booklet entitled "Changing for Life," call toll free at 1-800-841-1256.

The word enzyme comes from the Greek ‘ensymo’. Here ‘en’ means ‘at’ or ‘in’ and ‘simo’ means ‘leaven’ or ‘yeast’. The enzymes are biological catalysts. These are by and large proteins. There are also some RNAs that have catalytic activity. These are referred to as RNA enzymes or ribozymes. The enzymes bind temporarily to one or more of the reactants in a reaction and lower the amount of activation energy needed. In this way they speed up the reaction. The enzymes may speed up reactions by a factor of many millions.

If it were not for the enzymes then most of the chemical reactions in biological cells would occur too slowly. The products obtained from such reaction would also have been different. In this respect the enzymes are essential for sustenance of life. Again, a malfunctioning of a single enzyme can lead to a severe disease. Such malfunctioning may stem from mutation, overproduction, underproduction or deletion of the enzyme.

Changes in pH and temperature affect the activity of enzymes to a large extent. Every enzyme works at its optimum level at a certain temperature and pH. At temperature and pH levels above and below that point the activity of the enzyme decreases.

Other molecules can affect the activity of enzymes. There are certain naturally occurring or synthetically prepared molecules that decrease or even completely abolishing enzyme activity. These are called inhibitors. There are also activators, which increase activities of enzymes.

Apart from the use of enzymes for their biological role they are also commercially used for other purposes. There are many cleaners used in the household, which use enzymes to speed up chemical reactions. Breakings down of proteins or removing starch stains in clothes are facilitated by the use of enzymes. There are more than 5,000 known enzymes. The names of the enzymes characteristically include the suffix ‘ase’ added to the name of the substrate.

The enzymes are found in all tissues and fluids of the body. The intracellular enzymes catalyze the reactions of metabolic pathways, the plasma membrane enzymes regulates catalysis within cells in response to extra cellular signals while the enzymes of the circulatory system regulate the clotting of blood.

Characteristics of Fibromyalgia Treatments

Word Count:

Summary:
Fibromyalgia is a serious neurological condition that causes pain in the musculoskeletal system. People who suffer from fibromyalgia also feel pain in the tendons, ligaments and the areas of the joints. Another characteristic of fibromyalgia is a pronounced state of fatigue that takes over the entire body. The symptoms of fibromyalgia resemble those of rheumatoid arthritis and due to this fact, fibromyalgia may be misdiagnosed. However, unlike people with physical illnesses, the people with fibromyalgia seem to be in perfect health. Although the pain reported by people with fibromyalgia is present, it occurs on the premises of abnormal brain activity. People who suffer from fibromyalgia have a very sensitive nervous system and a low tolerance to external stimuli. Increased nervous excitability is considered to be the cause of the intense, recidivating pain experienced by people with fibromyalgia.

People who suffer from fibromyalgia have a very sensitive nervous system and a low tolerance to external stimuli. Increased nervous excitability is considered to be the cause of the intense, recidivating pain experienced by people with fibromyalgia.

Statistics indicate that more than 3.7 million Americans are diagnosed with fibromyalgia. This is a disturbing fact, as modern medicine hasn’t yet discovered a specific cure for this type of neurological disorder. In fact, although scientists have established a connection between abnormal brain activity and the symptoms of fibromyalgia, the exact causes responsible for the development of the disorder remain unknown. In present, fibromyalgia treatments are solely focused on ameliorating its symptoms, instead of overcoming its causes. Although most fibromyalgia treatments can ease the muscular pain and discomfort characteristic to all people with the disorder, these symptoms seem to reoccur on a regular time bases. This is due to the fact that fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder and therefore it needs ongoing treatment.

Fibromyalgia treatments mostly consist of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs (used solely for their analgesic properties). However, apart from intense pain, many people with fibromyalgia complain about having trouble sleeping and feel a pronounced state of fatigue throughout the whole body. Therefore, in some particular cases, fibromyalgia treatments may include sedatives in order to correct the patients’ sleeping problems.

As a consequence of the fact that modern medicine is unable to trace the actual causes of the disorder, the symptoms of fibromyalgia can only be corrected by prescribing a certain treatment for each individual symptom. Therefore, the majority of fibromyalgia treatments consist of many types of medicines that target different aspects of the disorder.

Other physical symptoms of fibromyalgia are: migraines, lack of concentration, body weakness, decrease of the short-term memory, accelerated heart rate, nausea, abdominal pain and bloating, vomiting and diarrhea. When patients are confronted with these symptoms, the fibromyalgia treatment includes medicines appropriate for each particular problem. Fibromyalgia can even cause depression and in this case the fibromyalgia treatment will include anti-depressives.

The multitude of fibromyalgia symptoms requires a multitude of fibromyalgia treatments. Due to this fact, many people who follow ongoing medication either develop increased tolerance to drugs and need higher doses (especially in the case of analgesics and sedatives), or they start feeling even worse than before due to the side-effects of the fibromyalgia treatment.

However, there are other forms of fibromyalgia treatments that can relief the symptoms of the condition without relying on drugs. These fibromyalgia treatments involve kineto-therapy and massage therapy. By stimulating the trigger points on the body (the places where the pain is the most intense) and through the means of therapeutic massages, the muscular pain and fatigue can be diminished. Medical experts strongly recommend these forms of therapy instead of ongoing fibromyalgia treatments that involve drugs.

Do you need help to sleep but don't want to spend out on a new mattress?  Is your new mattress harder than your old one therefore not as comfortable as you hoped it would be?  Although memory foam mattresses, especially the Tempur Pedic ® brand, are great at providing the help to sleep you are looking for, there are other products available that can make life more comfortable without spending a lot of money.

You can lay a memory foam topper on top of your existing mattress to make your bed softer. This is particularly useful if your existing mattress is too firm.  However, if your mattress is too soft for you already, a topper or memory foam pad will only make it softer.

The problem might be your pillows. If your mattress is okay, but your shoulders and neck ache when you wake up in the morning, it could be that your pillows are not as supportive as you would like them to be.  There are two types of memory foam pillow available. One is a pre-formed shape that is used on its own. The shape is such that it fits into the curve or your neck and supports your head.  It comes with a fitted cover but will also fit into standard pillowcases.  My mother suffers from cervical spondilitis that causes her a lot of pain in the base of her neck and shoulder.  My sister bought her a shaped memory foam pillow and once she got used to it, found it helped her to sleep comfortably. She now sleeps with nothing else.  You only need the one pillow for the correct amount of support.  Pillows are available in the normal pillow shape but they are slightly more expensive because they use more foam and are not likely to be as supportive.

Memory foam pillows and toppers are made from the same high density visco-elastic foam that the tops of the mattresses are made from.  Density makes a difference to how soft the foam is - 4lbs per cubic inch is softer than 5lbs (Tempur Pedic ® use 5.34lbs density foam). The toppers come in varying depths but the standard is 2" to 3", the same amount as would be found in full mattress construction, over a harder supportive layer of foam.  Memory foam is too soft to be used on its own in a mattress.  As for cost, the less dense the foam, the cheaper it is, but to get the best benefit, it is recommended to not use a density of less than 4lbs per cubic inch.

These days, with fast food being such a cheap and quick option, many people are neglecting the nutritional needs that their body’s are crying out for. Without the proper nutrients and minerals, our bodies simply cannot function to their full capabilities. To this end, there have been many cheap and healthy nutrition plans developed to maximize your body’s health while keeping to a tight budget.
Once per day supplements can combine many of the nutrients your body needs on a daily basis into a simple pill form. These can be relatively inexpensive and work wonders for your health, giving you your daily required vitamins and minerals.
Eating vegetables is a key step in most cheap and healthy nutrition plans. Costing much less than purchased food at a restaurant, your body reacts well when given uncooked vegetables. Containing phytochemicals, powerful natural agents that promote health, fresh vegetables also help to alkalinize your system and reduce the harmful effects of the acidic content our bodies most often possess.
Limiting sugar is also a critical step in many of these plans, as eating refined sugar has been known to weaken your immune system and promote yeast overgrowth.
Another key step in cheap and healthy nutrition plans has to be recognizing the difference between a physical need for food and an emotional desire for it. Many of us overeat due to the fact that we can not differentiate between the two desires, resulting in paying more to get more food than we need.
These are merely a few suggestions to help you on your cheap and healthy nutritional plans. Remember to get enough protein to allow your body to rebuild and generate new tissues, enough carbohydrates to keep energy throughout the day, and enough fat to maintain a decent body-fat level while not overindulging upon it.

Cheap Contact Lenses - Buy Online and Save

Article Body:
The FTC reports that access to online contact lens retailers provides consumers with greater choice and greater savings on contact lenses. With over 36 million Americans now wearing contact lenses, the FTC continues to fight for the rights of consumers in accessing cheap contact lenses offered by online contact lens distributors.
In the United States, sales of contact lenses are over $1 billion dollars annually. The past few years have witnessed an explosive growth of online contact lens retailers, and other channels of distribution, offering consumers greater selection and lower prices when purchasing contact lenses. The FTC has played a central role in breaking down anti-competitive barriers in the sale of contact lenses that serve to restrict consumer choice and raise lens prices.
Online contact lens retailers are in a unique position to bring consumers cheaper contact lenses. With the entire globe as their marketplace, thanks to the worldwide reach of the Internet, they are able to purchase massive quantities of brand name replacement contact lenses. The sheer volume of lenses purchased provides them with an excellent price advantage from brand name contact lens manufacturers. Couple this fact with their ability to operate very low priced Internet storefronts, they benefit from low operating expenses, while being able to buy huge volume. The end result, in simple terms, is that their ability to pass on savings to their consumers is limited only by their desire to make profits.
Over the past few years, the FTC has been active in promoting the ability of non-traditional contact lens sellers to operate in an open, competitive market. A March 2004 FTC report points out that "non-traditional contact lens sellers, such as Internet providers, represent a unique alternative distribution channel and offer some consumers a combination of price and convenience that they value highly". Thanks to recent legislation brought into effect with the help of the FTC and other consumer groups, the ability of consumers to purchase cheap contact lenses online is becoming easier.
Important among these legislative changes is the Ophthalmic Practices Rule and the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act (The Contact Lens Rule).
The Ophthalmic Practices Rule requires ophthalmologists and optometrists to provide their patients with a copy of their eyeglass prescription at no added cost after the completion of an eye examination. This was a very important development that helped pave the way for the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act.
The Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act, enacted by Congress in 2003, requires that eye care practitioners provide their patients with a copy of their contact lens prescription at no added charge upon the completion of a lens fitting. In the past, contact lenses were replaced infrequently and the lenses were typically purchased from eye care providers. These lenses were far more expensive than the soft, disposable lenses now favored by most lens
wearers.
In today's world, the vast majority of Americans wearing contact lenses choose to wear soft contact lenses that require more frequent replacement schedules. These lenses are far less expensive than the old, hard lenses of the past. As a result, price, choice, and convenience have become extremely important to consumers. The ability of consumers to obtain a copy of their contact lens prescription then allows them to shop around for the best prices
available. The result is increased competition and choice, and this only benefits consumers in terms of lower prices and greater selection.
The Contact Lens Rule (2004) has opened up a huge online contact lens replacement industry. Many of these online replacement lens companies offer exceptional pricing discounts compared to traditional lens sellers, not to mention choice and convenience when purchasing lenses.
Buying Cheap Contact Lenses Online
How does a consumer know if the prices available from one online retailer are better than those offered by another? There is one simple answer. Consumers must take the time comparison shopping on the Internet, just like they do from traditional sellers. In addition, some other variables beyond price should be considered by online shoppers prior to placing a contact lens order online. The steps outlined below will help any consumer interested in buying the cheapest brand name contact lenses online do so safely.
Step 1 - Compare Prices
Your contact lens prescription outlines the individual features required to meet your vision needs. There are many brands of contact lenses available. Find the lens type that meets your needs, and compare prices between the leading online lens sellers to find out what online store gives you the best price.
Step 2 - Find out the Real Price
Learning what online store offers the best price on the lenses themselves is only one step. The real price of your lenses also includes shipping. Many online stores offer excellent deals in terms of shipping. Find out if you can get free shipping by, for example, buying two pairs of lenses instead of one.
Step 3 - Assess the Online Storefront
Buying contact lenses online is no different than buying any other consumer good, whether online or from a traditional brick and mortar business. Assess the return policies, as well as customer service access. Any online retailer you buy lenses from should provide an operational toll free telephone number and address, along with clearly delineated customer service hours.
Step 4 - Website Security
Before placing an order for contact lenses or any other product online, ensure that the webpage you are on is secure. A secure website encrypts all the information you input before sending it across the Internet, thereby preventing others from accessing it. Consumers can easily check if they are on a secure website by viewing the small lock icon at the bottom right hand corner of their computer screen, or by viewing the website address itself. A

Everybody is always trying to top their Halloween costume
from last year with something even wilder and crazier. You
may have noticed costume contact lenses that are available
with all kinds of different scary effects for Halloween.
They’re really great if you want to scare your friends, but
when you get ready to buy some cheap contact lenses for
Halloween, just make sure you follow some important tips
to avoid any problems.

Tip 1 – Getting The Right Fit

When you are about to order some cheap contact lenses for
Halloween, you’ll notice that they can appear to be one-
size-fits-all. Be careful! Some suppliers sell them this way,
but you may want to avoid those companies because a one-
size-fits-all attitude towards contacts can be dangerous to
your eye health. You can probably buy crazy colored
contacts without any problem. But before you do, get a
prescription first, and order only from places that can
provide your prescription. Your doctor’s prescription is
basically a description of the shape and size of your eye,
which is necessary to make sure that the lenses you order
will fit your eye, and not cause any rubbing, injury or
infection to your eyes.

Tip 2 – Making The Right Choice

Once you have your prescription and you’ve found a
company that can provide it, you’ll want to pick the right
lenses to coordinate with whatever costume or theme
you’ve selected for Halloween this year. If you wear a
clown outfit, you don’t want eyes that look like a zombie or
vampire (unless, of course, you want to be a scary clown).
Keep your costume in mind when you select the style of
contact lenses you want to order. There are all kinds of
crazy, colored lenses to choose from for this. If you’re
going to be a ghost or something else scary, you can order
zombie lenses, pitch black contact lenses, fire, bloodshot
eyes, or something similar. If your theme is fun, like Mardi
Gras or patriotism, try red spirals or red-white-and-blue,
among other possibilities.

Tip 3 – Following The Right Instructions

When you order your cheap contact lenses for Halloween,
you may have the false impression that you don’t have to
take care of them like you do with regular prescription
contact lenses that someone might wear for vision
correction. This is a false assumption that many people
make. If you don’t exercise normal care and caution with
your cheap special effects lenses, you may regret it because
you can end up with eye infections or injury as a result. To
avoid these unfortunate consequences, never share your
lenses with anyone else. Don’t wear them for lengths of
time that are beyond the time periods they are designed for;
for example, if they are daily lenses, don’t try to keep them
in 24-hours-a-day like extended wear lenses. Also, if you
plan to re-use them more than once, take care to clean them
properly and store them overnight in a good contact lens
solution.

Cheap contact lenses for Halloween are great for having
fun and saving money. Just remember the above tips and
you’ll be able to enjoy a safe and happy Halloween. Your
eyes are one of the most important assets you have. Don’t
risk them by getting cheap lenses without a prescription, or
being careless in how you wear or clean them. A little
effort is all it takes to be safe and healthy, and to have a
great Halloween, listening to the blood-curdling screams
when your friends see your bloodshot eyes, pitch black
mirrored eyes, or whatever ghastly delight you decide to
choose for your costume.

Title:
Cheap Generic Drugs Or Expensive Branded Ones?

Word Count:
549

Summary:
In the modern world, there are generally two types of medication that a person has to choose from when sick: the cheap generic drugs, or the expensive branded medications. There are numerous misconceptions and myths about both, usually taking a pro-brand name bias. However, the reality is that one is just as effective as the other.

When someone is sick, the basic response in today's world is to medicate. However, in today's world, whenever a consumer is out to get something (even something that's badly needed), the first  inclination is to go with what's the most economical option. A person's health can therefore be a touchy subject in this regard, with both the well-being and the financial situation of the patient being thrown into the pot for consideration. Granted, there are cheap generic drugs available on the market that are lower in cost than their branded, trademarked counterparts. There is, however, the lingering question of whether or not price dictates quality. As with most other things, there are both positive and negative points to both sides, with the decision usually falling squarely on the shoulders of the person deciding.

Cheap generic drugs, provided they're made by reputable pharmaceutical companies, have the same exact ingredients as their branded counterparts. The core ingredients, the compounds in the medication that make it work and fix problems in the body, are the same both both cheap generic drugs and the more expensive, brand-named ones. There are typically very few differences between the two. For example, in a number of skin care treatments, the active ingredients are of a lower concentration in the generic ones than their prescription or branded counterparts. In most cases, however, the only real difference between the two would be the packaging. A number of cheap generic drugs are made by the same pharmaceutical companies that sell the trademarked medications.

The appearance of generics differs from branded ones primarily due to trademark laws. In some cases, any non-essential ingredients in the medication can also differ, but these do not have any impact on the effectiveness of the drugs. Local regulations and marketing needs may also affect how a generic drug is produced, with a certain medication being sold as a pill in one country, but as a tablet in another. However, in most cases, a trademarked or branded drug will retain its form regardless of what country it is marketed in. The appearance is also retained, mainly because this aspect of it is trademarked, with most customers being familiar with both name and design.

Cheap generic drugs are not designed to be any less effective than their branded counterparts. There are some cases where the active ingredient is in a lower concentration, but this usually occurs if the generic version is over-the-counter, while the branded one is available only by prescription. They aren't less effective and they don't take longer to work than the branded ones.

However, one thing that must be kept in mind is that not all branded medications have a generic counterpart. Some medications only come in the branded form, and these tend to be very expensive. Of course, in situations where this is the case, the expense usually comes from the fact that the patient is likely to have no other choice. A medical professional like a doctor or pharmacist is likely to have a better idea of which medications have a generic counterpart, if the patient's finances aren't up to purchasing a branded drug. In reality, the differences between the two tend to be superficial and, for the purposes of fixing a problem, one is just as good as the other.
