Well, these three hazards have snowballed out of proportion and every person is at risk of major health hazards that can even prove fatal. How can you protect yourself? Check out these quick tips that can even save your life.

Quick Tips That Can Improve Your Health And Save Your Life

Wash fruits and vegetables before you cook them. No matter how “organic” you think your food is, you can never really be sure unless you personally grow it. Chances are high that your food has come in contact with pesticides, even if not while being grown, at least in transit.

Don’t skip your daily anti-oxidants. Many people swear by green tea these days, while still other retch at the thought of swallowing what tastes more like putrid rainwater! Green tea, though, is good for your health. A cup of green tea each day, coupled with fresh fruits and vegetables, can keep you healthy and prevent diabetes, stroke and

Health Basics and the Bigger Picture

Health BasicsThere are some basic fundamentals of health. One is to get the proper nutrients in the body. Another is to get the toxins that have accumulated out of the body. Nutrients feed the body, while toxins hinder and block the body from working properly.

Where do toxins come from? They come from foreign and chemical substances in the air, water, and soil. They come from chemicals in cleaning products. Toxins are all around us in the types of products that are used in modern day society. Even with the best of intentions, simply living life exposes people to toxins. An example of toxins is this. This writer was told a story by a person who visited a chicken factory where eggs were laid and who noticed that there were no flies. The person asked why? The answer was that bug spray was put in the chicken feed. The question is, do you want that in your breakfast eggs? Another example: look on the back of most tubes of toothpaste. There is a warning. So these are just a couple of

5 Signs It’s Time to See a Pulmonary Doctor

Pulmonary DoctorPeople dealing with asthma-related issues, tuberculosis, bronchitis and pneumonia that fall in the chronic category are often in need of a specialist. That specialist is a pulmonary physician. Pulmonologists, or pulmonary specialists, are physicians who study and treat diseases of the lungs, airways and chest, care for the very sick in critical care units, and are even medically equipped to handle sleep disorders.

Usually pulmonary specialists collaborate with your primary care provider and, depending on your ailment, are often part of a comprehensive team that may include everything from a cardiologist to an oncologist.
Why would you want to seek out a pulmonary doctor? Here are five reasons why it might be in your best interest.

1. If there are abnormalities in you lungs that make it difficult to exhale normally. Excessive inflammatory processes eventually lead to these abnormalities in the lung’s structure that permanently obstruct airflow. Two common conditions leading to COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Signs related to this include:
• Chest pain, usually in the front of the chest.
• Dizziness
• Fainting
• Fatigue
• Leg swelling
• Light-headedness during exercise

5 Options for Treating Your Kid’s Sinus Infection Symptoms

Kid's Sinus Infection SymptomsA sinus infection in your child isn’t that hard to spot. If what you thought was a run-of-the-mill cold has lasted more than 10 to 14 days and is accompanied by a low-grade fever, doctors say it could possibly be a sinus infection. If your child has thick, yellow-green nasal drainage, post-nasal drip that sometimes leads to or exhibits as sore throats, coughs, bad breath, nausea and or vomiting, there’s a better than average chance that they are suffering from a sinus infection.

Colds and allergies can lead to swollen nasal passages that make more mucus along with the sinus tissues. Drainage for the sinuses can get blocked, and mucus can become trapped in the sinuses. Viruses, bacteria and fungi can grow there and lead to sinusitis.

While sinusitis itself is not contagious, colds often precede it. Colds as you know can spread easily, particularly among family and close friends. Effective in preventing the spread of germs is to teach your family the importance of frequent hand washing, particularly when they’re sick.

How do you treat your child’s sinus infection in the first place?

Low Sugar Diet For Your Health

Low Sugar DietIn general, our immune system does a miraculous job of guarding our bodies against microorganisms that can make us sick and or kill us. Unfortunately, perfection does not exist, not even in our immune system, and pathogens can be very intelligent.

In addition to intelligent pathogens, which is anything that can cause disease and make us sick, our behavioral habits such as diets low in nutritional value, and lack of exercise, weakens our immune system. A weaken immune system makes self-healing difficult if not impossible.

Furthermore, activities such as cigarette smoking and drinking alcohol in access create an ideal environment for pathogens to thrive. Much of immune systems self-healing properties can be enhanced, with a proper diet and moderate exercise.

Moreover, diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease can be prevented through lifestyle habits that include getting enough sleep, abstaining from substance abuse and eating a proper diet.

For some reason, too many of us feel deprived if we can’t eat foods that contain too much sugar, and bad fats that wreak havoc on our immune system. Our immune system cannot do their

3 Preparation Tips for Flu Season

Flu SeasonFlu season comes around every year and most people aren’t thrilled by that. In fact, it usually starts in October, just when most people are drinking pumpkin tea and eating pumpkin bread. So, if you’re going to prepare for Halloween and Thanksgiving, you should also prepare for flu season. After all, there’s going to be a lot of coughing, sniffling, and sneezing and avoiding that fact won’t make it go away(but wouldn’t it be nice if it did.).

5 Questions You Need To Ask Before You Have Shoulder Surgery

Shoulder SurgeryEach year over 250,000 people in the U.S. alone undergo shoulder surgery. Those who do so include individuals with acute shoulder pain or injury that has severely diminished their everyday functionality without having to contend with some kind of nagging pain. Healthcare providers say shoulder surgery can make a big difference in your ability to retrieve that function, and return to work and play.

Patients are often worried because the shoulder is the most complex and unstable joint in the body and can get injured easily. Many surgeries have been developed to repair the muscles, connective tissue, or damaged joints that can arise from traumatic or overuse injuries to the shoulder.

If shoulder surgery is what you have to do, then check out these 5 questions you should ask before having shoulder surgery.

1. How long will I be out?
The actual surgery takes one to two hours, depending on what needs to be done. Patients typically spend a night or two in the hospital for pain control. Most arthroscopic shoulder surgery patients recover quickly. New minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques and improved instrumentation have allowed doctors to quicken the recovery process. Most surgeries are

5 Early Signs Of Osteoarthritis

OsteoarthritisLive long enough and chances are you’ll suffer from some form of Osteoarthritis (OA), which is when degenerative joint pain is caused by wear and tear on your joints. As we age, the cartilage that cushions joints begins to wear down. This causes the bones to rub together and leads to inflammation of the joints. That equals pain.

OA affects the joints in the arms and legs most, but can also include fingers, wrists, knees, ankles and hips. The lower back is also a common culprit of OA pain and discomfort.

What are the early warning signs of OA? Here are 5 of them.

1. General aches and pains. The pain of early arthritis can be classified in pain and tenderness. There might also be a sharper pain when moving your affected joint in a certain way, such as when opening a jar with arthritic fingers. The discomfort you feel when pressing down on the joint is tenderness. It can include visible swelling in the area of the joint.

2. Joint Stiffness. Following right behind joint stiffness is joint pain. Stiffness is normal doctors say, when

5 Ways To Take Control of Your Chronic Shoulder Pain

Chronic Shoulder PainThe shoulder is the body’s most movable joint. This is good and bad news. With this level of function comes the potential for some instability – and certainly pain. Doctors will tell you that there are a number of conditions and injuries that can affect the shoulder.

Common causes of shoulder pain include:
• Arthritis affecting your shoulder joint
• Broken or dislocated bone in your shoulder
• Bursitis
• Shoulder separation
• Torn rotator cuff
• Frozen shoulder
• Overuse injuries affecting your shoulder and nearby tissues

Chronic shoulder pain robs you of your quality of life. It doesn’t have to be that way, of course. Here are 5 ways you can take control of your chronic shoulder pain.

1. Avoid Activities. To a point. Depending on what is causing you pain, certain activities and movements could only make the symptoms worse. However, healthcare providers suggest that you should continue using your shoulder for some mild activities because keeping it still could also make your symptoms worse.

Doctors advise you to keep the shoulder mobile with light tasks if possible yet avoid heavy

Build Strong Bones

Build Strong BonesOsteoporosis is a chronic disease characterised by a loss of bone mineral density, with the ultimate effect of reducing the structural integrity of the bone. Once the structural integrity of the bone is reduced, the risk of fractures increases. To combat this, the recommendation is to increase the dietary calcium intake to such a rate that an amount sufficient for bone building is consumed. On the surface this is entirely plausible; however, myriad sources of epidemiologic and trial data seem to support the notion that high calcium intake does not result in increased bone mineral density (BMD) or reduction in incidences of osteoporosis.

A general thread in conversations on the internet is that the source of the calcium may be the problem – that is, dairy is not a great source of calcium for human bones. There is certainly some evidence to support this assertion, but it should be noted that epidemiologic data can only be used to show correlation, which is not the same as causation. It is noteworthy to acknowledge at this stage that the data presented

8 Dangerous And Shocking Ingredients Hidden In Your Foods

boraxAs a qualified personal trainer and health coach I’ve evaluated a lot of diets and meal plans over the years. I always ask “So what is your diet like?” And the most common response is… “Oh my diet’s pretty good actually.” It’s not until we delve deeper into what people are consuming on a daily basis where we start to realize that their diet wasn’t that healthy after all.

Just because a food product is sitting on a supermarket shelf doesn’t mean that it’s OK to eat. Think about it… Children can eat crayons but we don’t call crayons food. Therefore, why are we putting so many lifeless and nutrient devoid foods as well as many known toxins into our bodies these days?

The food companies certainly don’t make it easy. Most of the food labels don’t make much sense due to all the codes and unpronounceable names. But did you know that there are legal loopholes where manufacturers can add certain ingredients and chemicals to the product, but state on the label that the product doesn’t contain those ingredients at all? Ridiculous isn’t it!

6 Facts About High Heat Death and Injury

Heat wavesHeat waves kill. The 1995 Chicago heat wave killed almost 700 people and sent over 3,300 to the emergency room. The CDC Environmental Hazards and Health Effects Program gives us these 6 facts about how heat kills.

    1. It’s not just the heat. Humidity plays a large role in heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Humans cool themselves by perspiring so that the air dries the moisture and, thus, cools us down. In high humidity, perspiration can’t do its job. When desert dwellers say, “it’s a dry heat”, they’re telling you why their high temperatures might be more bearable than a lower temperature in a humid climate.
    2. Nighttime counts, too. We have a rhythm to our lives. We wake up; we sleep. And, there is a rhythm to our days and nights. At night, the sun goes down and the temperatures cool. When nighttime temperatures stay high, we don’t get that cooling during a heat wave, there is an increase in deaths.
    3. What happens when we overheat? Think of your car’s temperature gauge. If your car gets overheated and you continue to drive, you’ve got a real problem. The same is true

The Danger Of Dehydration In Cold Weather

Dehydration In Cold WeatherOn a hot summer day, when the sun is blazing and the sky is completely cloudless, the beads of sweat on your brow prompt you to ensure that you are consuming plenty of water. This is especially the case when you are doing hard physical work or exercise outdoors – because your body loses fluid much faster. The fluid loss from your body, which stimulates thirst when the weather is warm, does not trigger the same reaction when the temperature drops. This is not just because you feel cold, it’s because cold temperatures affect thirst sensations.

Getting the correct balance of fluid in your body depends on thirst stimulation. When you feel thirsty, you consume fluids voluntarily – and your kidneys will conserve or excrete the fluid as necessary. This process is facilitated by fluid controlling hormones, like AVP (plasma argentine vasopressin), and a couple of things can stimulate these hormones. When your body loses fluid, the level of sodium in your blood rises, and your blood volume reduces overall as well. Both of these reactions stimulate your hypothalamus to discharge AVP, which makes your kidneys

Opt For Heart Health Everyday

Heart Health EverydayWe’ve turned the page on the calendar – the chocolate roses, truffles, heart-shaped foods and all that jazz are behind us. I’m not trying to dismiss February 14 as insignificant, but I do want to remind you that the heart is bigger than one day.

I want you to give equal attention to keeping your heart healthy and adopting a lifestyle that will help keep it that way. My goal is to motivate you to go beyond slipping into something red and looking good on the outside, to considering what you need to do to have a strong healthy heart inside.

EXERCISE

Include physical activity as part of your regular schedule. Some folks may have occupations that keep them walking and moving while others are in jobs that are sedentary, keeping them tethered to a desk all day. In either case folks need to exercise. If your job requires movement throughout the workday, include 30 minutes of physical activity, to aid in reducing stress. For those of you that are bound to a desk, see if your employer will invest in a few walking workstations.

Why You Need to Know Stroke Warning Signs at Any Age

Stroke Warning Signs at Any AgeStroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the country. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, it causes more serious long-term disabilities than any other disease.

There are new treatments that greatly reduce the damage caused by stroke but that treatment needs to be administered – fast. The window of opportunity to start treating stroke patients is three hours. But a person needs to be at the hospital within 60 minutes of having stroke to be evaluated and receive treatment. The sooner the patient arrives at the hospital, the better chance they have at preventing disability. That is why it’s important for people of all ages to know stroke warning signs and what to do in case of this emergency.

A stroke is often referred to as a “brain attack”. It occurs when blood flow to the brain is stopped – due to a blockage by a clot. The brain cells in the immediate area begin to die because they stop getting the oxygen and nutrients they need to function.

There are two kinds of stroke. The

Body Fat Percentage and BMI

Body FatHaving excess body fat is a very common and potentially dangerous medical condition in human beings today. It is potentially dangerous because it predisposes the affected person to diseases like hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, polycystic ovarian syndrome, non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis and even cirrhosis of the liver! These are just to mention a few of the medical hazards that can be caused by excessive fat in the body. Between the genders, women have to be even more careful with weight gain because they have a greater percentage of fat in the body than men. That’s just the way nature made it.

If you want to know whether you are overweight or obese, you should calculate your BODY MASS INDEX; also known as BMI. It is really simple to do using this formula:

Your WEIGHT in Kilograms divided by your HEIGHT in centimeters (squared) i.e. WEIGHT (kg)/HEIGHT(cm)2.

The normal range of BMI is 18-24.9. If you are above 24.9, you are overweight and greater than 29.9 is the beginning of obesity.If you fall into these categories, you need to lose weight in order to avoid the above mentioned diseases.

Why Organ Donation Is Important and What Kind of Organs Can You Donate

Organ DonationOur body is made up of many organs that perform very specific functions. These organs are systems of cells and tissues that are assigned specific tasks like respiration, digestion etc. The capacity of these organs to perform the given tasks diminished with age. The main organs that experience this deterioration are heart, lungs and kidneys. Normally, these organs deteriorate along with the entire body. But diseases that hit specific organs ultimately destroy them sooner while the rest of the body remains healthy.

When an organ is struck by a disease and is deteriorating because of it, some treatments work. Just like dialysis works for kidneys. But if all other treatments fail, organ transplantation is the best alternative. In this procedure the damaged organ is replaced with a healthy one.

Healthy organs are not easy to find. The only sources are from those who have registered themselves as organ donors. This results in long waiting lists of recipients. And as mentioned earlier, since there aren’t as many donors as recipients, the list keeps getting longer and longer. There are incidents when a patient loses his life waiting for
