  34. <content type="html" xml:base="http://www.after50health.com/an-important-discussion-bladder-infection-versus-urinary-tract-infection.html"><![CDATA[<p>Urination, one of the important processes carried out by the body to eliminate waste, with this process helping the body to maintain good health and prevent it from various damages. Any disorder in the ability to urinate like frequent urination, pain and burning sensation during urination or difficulty in passing urine or emptying the bladder completely could be due to various causes. Urinary tract infection or UTI or just bladder infection could be a predominant cause for difficulties and peculiarities in urination.</p>
  35. <p>Understanding this important process in the human body makes one realize that the kidney an important part of the urinary system performs the task of filtering the blood and discharging urine. The waste in the form of urine is then carried to the urinary bladder and accumulates there. Once the bladder is full you would feel the urge to pass urine making you to voluntarily release urine. Urine passes out through the ureter to the urethra and is released from the body. Infections in the urinary system could be just in the bladder or in the urinary tract; hence the difference bladder and urinary tract infection. </p>
  36. <p><b>Differences between bladder infection and urinary tract infection</b></p>
  37. <p>Learning all about bladder infection versus urinary tract infection would be better understood when we realize that bladder is just a part of the urinary system, hence bladder infection could form just one of the urinary tract infections. Bladder infection also referred to as cystitis refers to the infection in the urinary bladder that is caused with harmful bacteria and substances entering the bladder where urine is collected and stored before being expelled from the body. Causing infection and inflammation, bladder infection could occur due to various reasons with inadequate emptying of the bladder being a predominant factor. </p>
  38. <p>The stagnation of urine inside the urinary bladder could cause infection in the cells that are connected with the bladder only.  This action allows urine to stagnate inside the bladder, which can be a haven for bacteria over time. </p>
  39. <p>As most of us are aware the urinary tract is responsible for removing waste products in the form of urine and maintaining the balance of fluids in the body. As opposed to bladder infection that is infection and inflammation in the bladder, urinary tract infection or UTI is the term that is used collectively for the infection in the lower urinary tract that involves mostly the ureters and urethra only.   </p>
  40. <p>It is significant to note that infection and inflammation is mainly caused with the entry of bacteria through the opening of the urethra with pain while urinating being an important symptom. </p>
  41. <p>Again every bladder infection is a UTI, but all UTIs are not bladder infections. Bladder infections more common in women than men because the urethras are short make it much easier for the bacteria Escherichia coli, yeast and parasites to enter it. Bladder infection or cystitis presents itself with symptoms like burning sensation while urinating that is sometimes very frequent and in small amounts. In addition there could be presence of blood in urine with the urine being strong smelling accompanied by discomfort and pressure in the lower abdomen. Some could also complain of low grade fever. </p>
  42. <p>On the other hand, UTI could mean that the bladder, urethra, urethral neck have been affected and if untreated could lead to more complications due to the kidney being affected. Some of the symptoms of urinary tract infection could be strong and persistent urge to empty the bladder accompanied with a burning sensation while urinating and passing of small amounts of urine. There could be bacteria and blood in the urine, with some infections in the upper urinary tract showing up as chills and high fever.</p>
  43. <p>So dear friends just understand that a bladder infection versus urinary tract infection means that every bladder infection is a urinary tract infection, but it is not the other way around.  </p>

They generally have difficulties in processing information in the brain and could have difficulties in finding suitable jobs, with training and experience helping them to build up skills to cope with the disorder. </p>
  74. <p>However it is to be realized that these adults do have their own unique set of strengths and skills along with their weaknesses and difficulties. You would find that dealing with Aspergers in adults could not only be frustrating, but also demoralizing with the adult not showing any signs of empathy and understanding and being unable to understand the changing needs of their close family members. It is significant to note that though this syndrome cannot be cured fully, social skills training, counseling or psychological therapy has helped many sufferers of Aspergers syndrome.  </p>
  75. <p><b>How to deal with Aspergers in adults effectively?</b></p>
  76. <p>(a) It is rather frustrating to find that adults that suffer from Aspergers syndrome find it very difficult to relate to others in a normal way and this could make the others feel that he/she does not care enough. But this attitude may not be understood or interpreted in the right way when being told. Family counseling could help a lot in providing assistance, but convincing a sufferer of Aspergers syndrome that he/she needs helps may be very tough.</p>
  77. <p>(b) Counseling both individual and group/family have helped in case of Aspergers syndrome patients, but social skills training has been able to provide the skills for the sufferer in dealing with intimate people like partners and children and others like workplace colleagues and friends. Convincing an adult Aspergers syndrome sufferer for training in social skills will teach him/her not only to recognize and act according to facial expressions and body language, but would also teach them to clearly associate and interpret the messages communicated. This would make for better verbal interaction with others. </p>
  78. <p>(c) It is an acknowledged fact that dealing with Aspergers syndrome adults can be very tough for their near and dear, as they have to deal with acceptance of constructive criticisms, for it is this that helps them to smoothen the rough parts of the close relationship together. It is true that mutual willingness and understanding proves better in close daily interactions, so this could be helped with social training that helps Aspergers adults to learn slowly but surely effective ways of social interaction. This would help lessen not only misunderstandings and social isolations, but also help sufferers to be more amicable to ask for help and advice.</p>
  79. <p>(d) Dealing with marital partners that are afflicted with Aspergers syndrome can be very frustrating and demanding when the other partner has to take up the full responsibility of making the emotional relationship work. A lack of intimacy could be very difficult for the healthy partner to understand and may also feel like ending the relationship that simply is not fulfilling. When children arrive the affected parent may find it difficult to understand his/her childrens needs and may not be in a position to reciprocate love, affection and concern.  </p>
  80. <p>So every 4 out of 5 such marriages end in the divorce court due to lack of understanding. However it would help best to go in for counseling and also join support groups of relatives of sufferers, these actions would help to understand better the intense feelings of hurt, anger, disappointment, and depression and then to overcome them.<br />
  81. All this goes to effectively deal with adult sufferers of Aspergers syndrome and then to make a success with mutual and fruitful relationships.  </p>

  113. <p><strong>Understanding the conventional medical approach:</strong></p>
  114. <p>The conventional medical approach to treating ovarian cysts is very simple and straightforward and consists of three stages: </p>
  115. <p>1.<strong>Understanding the symptoms:</strong> There are certain textbook symptoms of ovarian cysts which include irregular menstruation, pelvic pain, infertility, and more. The patients are asked to keep a tab on these symptoms so that the condition can be diagnosed quickly to prevent potential complications. However, sometimes, ovarian cysts do not give rise to any symptoms. Hence, they can be discovered accidentally during a routine gynecological examination. </p>
  116. <p>2.<strong>Diagnosing ovarian cysts:</strong> Diagnosing ovarian cysts canbe done in several ways. Besides understanding the symptoms of the condition, the practitioner will also make use of an Endovaginal ultrasound, CT scanning, blood tests, Laproscopy and many other forms of tests to confirm his or her prognosis. Similar to the treatment of ovarian cysts, the diagnostic stage of the treatment can be equally traumatic. </p>
  117. <p>1.<strong>Treatment:</strong> The treatment for ovarian cysts normally depends upon the type of cyst and its nature. If the cyst is benign, little to no treatment is required. However, in the more serious cases, conventional medicine will recommended the following forms of treatment: </p>
  118. <p>. <strong>Birth control pills:</strong> Birth control pills stop ovulation. They therefore repress ovarian cysts. They can also reduce the size of the follicles and help in reducing the size of the existing cysts.</p>
  119. <p>. <strong>Surgery:</strong> If the cysts are cancerous or if there are any other complications, then surgery is recommended. The decidion regarding surgery will depend upon the type of cyst and the potential complications. Sometimes, only the cyst is removed. However, it is not very uncommon to remove one or both ovaries to get rid of a cyst.</p>
  120. <p>Besides the above, pain killers are also given to provide relief from the pain caused by the cysts. </p>
  121. <p>The only way to effectively treat and prevent ovarian cysts is by using a multidimensional holistic approach to healing. </p>
  122. <p>Unlike the conventional approach which deals with the inflicted organ or with the symptoms of the disease (and the treatment in often aggressive with a myriad of side effects), the holistic approach treats every disease as part of a whole by firstly restoring natural balance to the body while naturally tackling each causative factor which lead to the condition. In this way, the holistic approach to treating ovarian cysts offers a long term, safe and gentle solution without the side effects of drugs or the risk of surgery while ensuring the prevention of future ovarian cyst recurrence. </p>

This symptom affects millions of people and despite what many books will tell you, tinnitus cannot be cured. That being said, there are many holistic remedies that may help to alleviate the symptoms. </p>
  154. <p>Generally, it is assumed that if you can reduce the severity of the symptoms so that they are not a bother anymore, you may consider yourself cured. That may be one way to look at it. Yet, you should remember that if you stop doing what you are supposed to do, the symptoms may return.</p>
  155. <p>In order to know which remedy will work for you, you will need to go through a process of trial and error. Different methods will work differently for each individual. What works wonders for one may have a negligible effect on another.</p>
  156. <p>You must try and find out what is the underlying cause of your tinnitus. You should also monitor your lifestyle and the effect it has on your tinnitus condition. You may see patterns emerge and from there you will be able to make adjustments to help yourself.</p>
  157. <p>For example, some people may experience tinnitus when they are exposed to loud noises. For people like this, loud noises should be avoided at all costs. Wearing ear plugs will be extremely beneficial. Is this a holistic method? Yes. Does it work? Yes.</p>
  158. <p>Other people may notice when they drink caffeine containing beverages, their ringing starts. Cut out the caffeine and it disappears. Why? Because caffeine is a stimulant. So, by reducing or stopping the consumption of caffeine, the tinnitus symptoms will be minimized. This too is a holistic method.</p>
  159. <p>In fact, any remedy that doesn’t require medication, surgery or some procedure that a doctor will do, is considered a holistic remedy.</p>
  160. <p>People with high blood pressure, atherosclerosis аnd head аnd neck tumors may also experience tinnitus. For cases like these, you will need to see a doctor because these are serious health problems. Holistic remedies can only do so much. By insisting on only using natural remedies, you may be doing more harm than good and your health may seriously suffer.</p>
  161. <p>Changes to your diet will also make a world if difference. Salt, sugar, saturated fats аnd processed foods tend tо aggravate thе condition оf tinnitus. Avoidance of these foods will be very beneficial.</p>
  162. <p>Alcohol is best avoided because it increases the blood flow all over the body and in the inner ear too. This may trigger the ringing noises in your ear. The best thing that you can do is avoid alcohol completely. The truth of the matter is that alcohol is a form of poison and the body does not need it at all.</p>
  163. <p>Stress control is another important factor. Do whatever it takes to reduce your stress levels since tinnitus is caused by stress. In fact, many health problems can be avoided if people are not stressed out.</p>
  164. <p>There are many natural herbs and supplements that can also be consumed to help reduce the intensity of your tinnitus. You may get one of the many guides sold online that are dedicated to helping tinnitus sufferers get a grip on their problem by using holistic remedies. Thousands have benefitted from these guides and you just might be one of them too.</p>

Ovarian cysts raise concern among many women, especially in childbearing age.  While the majority of ovarian cysts are simply functional in nature, some ovarian cysts can turn out to be cancerous.  The first step of correctly diagnosing and treating ovarian cysts is to identify the cause of the disease. However, there is no single cause of ovarian cysts. Ovarian cysts can be triggered by a variety of primary factors and secondary factors. It is imperative to understand these different factors in order to seek appropriate treatment.</p>

  295. <p><strong>Primary factors of ovarian cysts:</strong></p>
  296. <p>There are several primary factors and a combination of these factors which lead to ovarian cysts formation. </p>
  297. <p>1.Genetic predisposition: Genetic predisposition is often considered to be the primary cause of ovarian cysts as research has shown that the genetic pattern of women who suffer from this chronic condition is far different compared to women who have never suffered from ovarian cysts or PCOS. PCOS women are often predisposed to abnormal metabolism and the dysfunctions of cell activity. However, this should not be a death warrant as many times the genetic characteristics can be modified with the help of environmental factors and proper lifestyle related changes.  </p>
  298. <p>2.Poor dietary choices: Different types of foods including refined carbohydrates, acidic foods and foods which contain high levels of toxins and hormone like substances can trigger hormonal imbalance and can weaken your immune system making you more susceptible to ovarian cysts. Similarly a diet rich in sugar and low on fresh vegetables can make the task of flushing out toxins difficult thereby aggravating your ovarian cyst condition. </p>
  299. <p>3.Weak immune system: Poor dietary choices, stress and sleep deprivation can lead to a weakened immune system. A weakened immune system invites cannot defend the body against ovarian cyst formation.  </p>
  300. <p>4.Insulin resistance: High level of insulin can stimulate ovarian androgen production, which leads to the production of male hormones. This reduces the serum sex-hormone binding globulin or SHGB. The SHBG can in turn aggravate your ovarian cyst condition to quite an extent. </p>
  301. <p>5.Failed ovulation process:  When the ovaries fail to release an egg on a monthly basis due to certain metabolic disorders and because progesterone isn&#8217;t produced it can trigger the formation of ovarian cysts as the immature follicles develop into cysts.</p>
  302. <p>Besides the above primary factors, toxins in the liver and blood and even environmental toxins can increase the chances of ovarian cysts formation. </p>
  303. <p>The only way to effectively treat and prevent ovarian cysts is by using a multidimensional holistic approach to healing. </p>
  304. <p>Unlike the conventional approach which deals with the inflicted organ or with the symptoms of the disease (and the treatment in often aggressive with a myriad of side effects), the holistic approach treats every disease as part of a whole by firstly restoring natural balance to the body while naturally tackling each causative factor which lead to the condition. In this way, the holistic approach to treating ovarian cysts offers a long term, safe and gentle solution without the side effects of drugs or the risk of surgery while ensuring the prevention of future ovarian cyst recurrence.    </p>

  337. <p>Why? Why must something annoying always just when you are trying to make progress in life?</p>
  338. <p>Fair questions indeed. To answer the second question, that’s just life. Something will always pop up to challenge you. It’s just like that and that’s how you develop as a human being by moving forward despite all obstacles.</p>
  339. <p>Now let’s talk about the ringing sound. </p>
  340. <p>This is known as tinnitus, but you probably already know that. It could be a ringing іn thе ears accompanied bу а hissing, clicking, wooshing, roaring оr а thudding sound. Thе degree оf thе ringing саn range frоm mild tо intense. There might be pain and pressure in the ear too. </p>
  341. <p>Ok… that’s all fine. But why are you getting it after exercise and not during normal times?</p>
  342. <p>Firstly, it is due to increased blood flow because your heart is pumping away and beating harder than normal. During exertion, the heart beats harder, takes іn more oxygen аnd also expels high levels оf blood tо аll parts оf thе body. Blood is sometimes distributed to areas where it is not required in such high amounts. The body will then respond by producing a ringing sound in your ears.</p>
  343. <p>This sound will diminish once your heart rate returns to normal.</p>
  344. <p>You can prevent the ringing sound by pacing yourself, warming up properly and not over-exerting yourself. </p>
  345. <p>Besides exercise, there are also other factors to consider.</p>
  346. <p>Are you having a cold? Infections in the nose and throat may result in tinnitus symptoms due to the proximity of the throat and nose to the ear. The pressure from the mucus may trigger the ringing sound. The constant blowing of one’s nose and coughing, etc, will draw an increase in the blood flow to the ear causing the ringing.</p>
  347. <p>Do you have any pre-existing head or neck injuries? If you have neck or head injuries, your ears will probably start ringing after an exercise session. Your immediate course of action will be to see a doctor because this is a sign of something serious.</p>
  348. <p>Don’t exert yourself too much and make an appointment with your doctor.</p>
  349. <p>Something that many people overlook is the music in their gym. Some gyms blast heavy metal music, some kickboxing classes have techno music that is blasting to motivate the members to workout in a frenzy. While your heart and lungs may be getting a good workout, your ears may be getting damaged. So, bear that in mind the next time you go to the gym.</p>
  350. <p>These are just a few of the most common reasons why your ears may ring after exercise. You should observe how long the ringing lasts and what exercises trigger it. Once you have an idea of what is causing the ringing, then you just need to tailor your workout in a way that will prevent the ringing sound.</p>

Therefore, it is a good idea for those with mobility restrictions to consider installing a stair lift to help them access any room in their house without any difficulty. Having said that, here are the major reasons why it is good to have a stair lift in your home:</p>
  382. <p><strong>Provides freedom</strong></p>
  383. <p>People with disabilities and seniors are usually forced to relocate when mobility becomes a challenge. The good news is that they don’t have to relocate due to mobility challenges as a stair lift can enable them to use their house the way they want to without any mobility challenges.</p>
  384. <p><strong>Promotes safety</strong></p>
  385. <p>Stair lifts often enable mechanical transporting up and down staircases. The chair has a safety buckle that ensures that the person using it is fastened in during the movement up and down staircases. </p>
  386. <p>In addition, many stair lifts have built-in safety features that prevent operation in case the device is obstructed by anything on the stairs or in case the footrest, seat or armrests are not properly positioned. A stair lift also comes with a lock switch that helps prevent anyone else from using the chair, especially children.</p>
  387. <p><strong>A stair lift is very comfortable</strong></p>
  388. <p>This is because of the fact that a stair lift armrests and seat are adjustable and padded. Its footrest can also be easily adjusted hence enabling a user to easily adjust it to his or her desired height.</p>
  389. <p><strong>Enables the user to fully access his or her staircase</strong></p>
  390. <p>Most of the stair lifts don’t block access to the rest of the staircase as they have slim profiles. The footrest and the chair usually fold away meaning that it won’t hinder other people who would like to access the stairs.</p>
  391. <p><strong>A stair lift is easy to use</strong></p>
  392. <p>Modern stair lifts can be easily controlled by a toggle found on the armrest. Most of them also have a remote control handset hence enabling its user to call the stair lift from the bottom or top of the stairs when necessary. </p>
  393. <p>A stair lift is also ready to use at any time as it charges when it is in the park position. And the good news is that it can be used even when there is power loss as every stair lift comes with a built-in battery backup system according to this <a href="https://www.brookmiller.co.uk/a-complete-guide-to-buying-a-stair-lift/" target="_blank">Brook Miller stair lift guide</a>.</p>
  394. <p><strong>Custom ordered</strong></p>
  395. <p>Before installing a stair lift, the installer first evaluates the length and angle of a staircase so that the custom rail that will be ordered will be specifically designed for the stairs and also promote safe access on and off the stair lift depending on the ability to transfer onto the chair. </p>
  396. <p>The transfer can be made safer for a stair lift user by adding additional bends and “parks”.  Installing a stair lift is easy and quick and doesn’t need any changes to the interior of a home.</p>

This affects the lower parts of the body resulting in ankle, knee, leg, and lower back pain. The feet are particularly at risk in those suffering from diabetes and should be well cared for by wearing proper diabetic footwear.</p>
  427. <p>At Excel, we have a full line of diabetic footwear and custom inserts to keep diabetic patients walking in comfort. Our highly skilled practitioners understand how different types of diabetic shoes, orthopedic shoes, and surgical shoes in combination with biomechanical orthotics helps to solve foot problems in diabetics. We use cutting-edge technology combined with experience to create a better quality of life for our patients.</p>
  428. <p>Technology is constantly changing and improving the products available to us we consistently seek to expand our knowledge in order to provide our customers with the best options available. Our innovative technologies are led and utilized by an expert team of certified technicians and practitioners. An example of this leading-edge technology is digital scanning that captures the most accurate model of a patient in order to provide the best solution for foot and general health problems.</p>
  429. <p><strong>Diabetic Shoes</strong></p>
  430. <p>Off the shelf diabetic footwear and custom-molded <a href="https://www.orthoticshop.com/diabetic-footwear/" target="_blank">diabetic shoes</a> feature modifications that include wedges, lifts, and rocker soles.</p>
  431. <p><strong>Diabetic Insoles</strong></p>
  432. <p>Diabetic insoles serve the purpose of evenly distributing weight over the whole plantar surface of the foot, alleviating pressure on areas that may be painful or sensitive. These insoles improve the overall alignment of the feet, lower limb, and ankle complex and can also accommodate and correct for deformities. Categories in these foot orthoses include corrective, accommodative, soft, semi-rigid, and rigid.</p>
  433. <p><strong>CROW &#8211; The Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker </strong></p>
  434. <p>An orthosis is a brace custom-fabricated to maintain the foot in a <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantigrade" target="_blank">plantigrade</a> position for better ambulation. It protects the skin and joints by uniformly distributing or transferring weight across the entire foot area until the pathology has reached a stage of coalescence (blending or fusion of parts).</p>
  435. <p><strong>Excel TORCH Walker </strong></p>
  436. <p>The TORCH Walker combines the functionality and accommodation of custom-molded footwear with the positioning and support of a traditional AFO. Standard features include a rocker base with SACH heel and a triple-density custom insole.  It offers a wide range of options and modifications that are diagnosis-specific to address any complex conditions of the lower extremities.  The Velcro lace closure creates a perfect fit and it is fully adjustable to accommodate fluctuating edema. This 100% customized device is a superior alternative to the Excel CROW Walker and can accommodate any issue with the lower extremities. Better outcomes are achieved by increased patient compliance.</p>

  467. <p><strong>1.  Guaranteed Vitamin Absorption</strong></p>
  468. <p>Certain pharmaceuticals and medical conditions can interrupt the body&#8217;s ability to adequately absorb nutrients required to function correctly.  Using IV therapy, it is possible for the vitamins to be quickly and completely absorbed into the bloodstream; thereby, allowing the body to use them immediately.</p>
  469. <p><strong>2.  Boosting The Body&#8217;s Energy</strong></p>
  470. <p>If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, respiratory illness or even a <a href="https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/common-cold/symptoms-causes/syc-20351605" target="_blank">common cold</a>, IV therapy can be beneficial by boosting the immune system and helping you feel energized and refreshed.</p>
  471. <p><strong>3.  Instant Rehydration</strong></p>
  472. <p>IV is one of the most effective means of providing the body with optimal hydration to support all vital organ functioning.  This can assist in prevention of medical conditions such as kidney stones, damage to the body&#8217;s muscles, and constipation.</p>
  473. <p><strong>4.  Fast Treatment Times</strong></p>
  474. <p>You will not need to spend a great deal of time waiting for the treatment to be completed when using IV therapy.  The majority of IV vitamin therapies can be completed in less than one hour.  You can relax and enjoy the therapy is a calm and comfortable setting. If you’re interested in this, check out this <a href="https://www.elevenwellness.com/" target="_blank">med spa in Dallas</a>. </p>
  475. <p><strong>5.  Customized Therapy</strong></p>
  476. <p>There are various IV therapies available at the Lifestyle Physicians clinic used to meet a patient&#8217;s nutritional requirements, such as the popular Myers cocktail.  This custom therapy is perfect if you desire relief from allergies, fatigue or muscles spasms; as well as utilizing essential vitamins such as magnesium, calcium, and vitamins C and B.  The therapies are created utilizing your personal treatment goals and nutritional deficiencies.</p>
  477. <p><strong>6.  Reduced Reliance On Medication</strong></p>
  478. <p>When using customized IV therapy, it is possible to reduce the use of costly nutritional supplements to be taken several times per day.  Dr Asad works in conjunction with you to identify exactly what your body requires and how often you need the therapy.</p>
  479. <p><strong>7.  Ideal Preventive Treatment</strong></p>
  480. <p>The IV therapy can be a beneficial step on the road to preventive healthcare.  Research has found that doses of vitamin C can be toxic to cancer cells but effective when building a person&#8217;s immunity.  Regular IV therapy can prevent the development of further chronic medical conditions including migraines and respiratory ailments.</p>
  481. <p><strong>8.  Immediate Results</strong></p>
  482. <p>Food can take up to two days to fully be digested by the body.  Using IV therapy, you can begin to feel the beneficial effects of the treatment on your body instantaneously.  Reports show that within a few hours, people have felt the effects of the nutrients included in IV treatment; therefore, you will have more energy, be able to think more clearly and have an improved mood in a shorter space of time.</p>
  483. <p><strong>9.  Best Choice For Athletes</strong></p>
  484. <p>People on the go will typically experience muscle spasms, tired muscles and exhaustion.  Utilizing IV therapy, you can replace the lost vitamins and minerals; thereby, improving your overall recovery time after your workouts.  These treatments can also ensure adequate hydration following excessive perspiration that accompanies physical exercise sessions.</p>
  485. <p><strong>10.  Fighting The Effects Of Toxins</strong></p>
  486. <p>Toxins in the daily environment can affect a person&#8217;s health and appearance.  The IV treatment provides the body with antioxidants required to prevent premature signs of aging and flush the body of harmful toxins.</p>

Getting exercise on a regular basis can not only help keep your heart healthy but it can also help you control your weight. As an added bonus, it can improve the overall health of your joints while at the same time reducing your risk of falling by improving your sense of balance. </p>
  517. <p>Best of all, you don&#8217;t have to spend all of your time exercising to enjoy these benefits. Instead, you just need to fit in about 2 1/2 hours of aerobic exercise each week. This can include activities like walking, hiking, or swimming. Additionally, you should try to incorporate strength training activities into your schedule twice a week to maximize your results.</p>
  518. <p><strong>Fun And Simple Ways To Get In Shape</strong></p>
  519. <p>You don&#8217;t have to spend all of your time sweating at the gym to get a great workout. Instead, you can try some of these fun activities:</p>
  520. <p>* Dancing. Hitting the dance floor provides a great workout. You can dance by yourself or with a partner. If you really want to have a great time, consider signing up for classes.</p>
  521. <p>* Bowling. Spending time bowling is a great way to stay active. Consider signing up for your local bowling league or setting a regular date to get together with your friends.</p>
  522. <p>* Other types of sports. Is there a sport you played a lot when you were younger? If so, why not try playing it again? Whether you want to head out to the golf course or hit the tennis court, there are a lot of options available. You may even want to try incorporating a number of different sports into your routine to keep from getting bored and to work all of the muscles in your body.</p>
  523. <p>* Spend time outdoors. There are a lot of fun ways to exercise outside. Whether you want to go for a bike ride, hike a local trail, or take a walk around your neighborhood, breathing in fresh air while you work your muscles can be both fun and rewarding.</p>
  524. <p>* Go swimming. When it comes to low-impact exercises, few are as effective as swimming. It is ideal for people who have pain in their joints or who suffer from arthritis.</p>
  525. <p><strong>Build Strength And Improve Your Balance</strong></p>
  526. <p>Falls are far more likely to result in serious injuries as you get older. You can minimize this risk by working to improve your balance. Exercises like tai chi and yoga do a great job of helping you increase your muscle tone. As an added bonus, they also provide much-needed stress relief. This is why any good <a href="https://srcarecenter.com/" target="_blank">Senior Care Center</a> will include it in their routine. </p>
  527. <p>Stretching also can go a long way toward improving your flexibility and keeping your joints in good shape. Don&#8217;t forget to focus on strength training a couple of days a week, as well. If you don&#8217;t have weights at home, you can lift cans of food from your pantry or use a lightweight resistance band to build muscle.</p>
  528. <p><strong>Work Around Your House</strong></p>
  529. <p>You can get a great workout doing chores around your house. <a href="https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/household-chores-fitness-lose-calories-burning-cleaning-home-hoovering-health-a7526451.html" target="_blank">House cleaning burns a tremendous number of calories</a> and helps you build muscle. The same goes for gardening or raking leaves.</p>
  530. <p>As you age, you should focus on staying as active as possible. Getting regular exercise will help keep you healthy and strong for many years to come.</p>

  561. <p>However, the mood swings seen or experienced by women are mainly due to hormonal changes and the situation sometimes makes women hapless victims.</p>
  562. <p>A recent study that used music therapy for improving the women&#8217;s health and wellness revealed that music could play a very vital role in improving the overall health in women.</p>
  563. <p><strong>Classical Music and its Effects on Women&#8217;s Health and Wellness</strong></p>
  564. <p>You could have noticed that classical music is played in some popular restaurants and high-end departmental stores, but never bothered to look into the reasons for such specific type of music.</p>
  565. <p>The reason for such selection of classical music is due to the soothing effects that it can instill in the minds of listener and it is true that classical music can promote relaxation in a person.</p>
  566. <p>In workplace also such classical music can do wonders in the minds of people, especially in the minds of women and with some kind of classical music playing in background, women were seen to get a relaxed mood and an increased efficiency in their otherwise mundane jobs.</p>
  567. <p>The classic part of a classical music is that it will not distract the attention of the listener and at the same time be able to instill relaxed feeling in the minds of listener.</p>
  568. <p><strong>Role of Other Popular Music in Women&#8217;s Health and Wellness</strong></p>
  569. <p>Similar to classical music, playing other popular music with a good beat can also descend a state of serene atmosphere and make listeners forget their worries and merge with the music instantaneously.</p>
  570. <p>If you are in need of some kind of relaxation or escape route for momentarily forgetting your worries, then you can tune your radio to a favorite popular music channel and start dancing matching to the beat. A sing along can also help, but the same may not be nice looking in an office atmosphere.</p>
  571. <p><strong>Getting Adept at Women&#8217;s Health and Wellness</strong></p>
  572. <p>Being a woman and in need of some kind of relief, you can sit in a quiet place and start listening to your favorite music.

An infant frequent urination could be a sign of abnormality in the infants urine like bacteria, blood or sugar with some also urinating more frequently simply because of intake of a lot of fluids or undergoing stress and anxiety. However it is not advisable to neglect frequent urination that could be due to more serious causes and see a pediatrician immediately to carry on an analysis of the urine and suggest suitable action of treatment if any. It is a well realized fact that professionals can easily diagnose the cause of an infant frequent urinating and take prompt preventive steps to avoid permanent damage to the kidneys due to extreme infective conditions of the urinary tract.  </p>
  606. <p><b>Some causes of an infant frequent urination</b></p>
  607. <p>One of the serious and most embarrassing causes for frequent urination is infection in the urinary tract with bacteria. This is quite common in many infants with some also having pain and burning sensation while urinating. Besides urgency could be felt each time one urinates and sometimes fever and abdominal pain can also be felt. Urinary infection caused by the bacteria E-Coli mostly may show symptoms or not, with a urine analysis and culture being the most common diagnoses of this infection. Urinary tract infection is more common in infants that are girls than boys with treatment being though antibiotics. However many other natural methods like toilet hygiene and drinking a lot of water helps in eliminating the infection. </p>
  608. <p>It is quite common to find that some children especially infants do not take enough time to empty their bladder and get easily distracted. This may cause the buildup of urine in the bladder with the splinter muscle that helps the infant to hold urine becoming overactive and not assisting complete voiding. This voiding dysfunction could be corrected with encouraging children to try and fully empty their bladder so that urination becomes regular and less frequent.   </p>
  609. <p>It is quite possible that the irritation of the skin in and around the vaginal region or opening of the urethra could cause frequent urination with the main cause being shampoos and soaps that are used for infants. Vulvovaginitis could seem like UTI, with the skin   around the vaginal area not only being very sensitive, but also turning easily red and inflamed when irritants like soap and shampoo come in contact with it. Poor toilet hygiene could also be one of the causes that arise out of not cleaning after urinating or wiping in an incorrect way.  </p>
  610. <p>Another prominent cause for infant frequent urination could be diabetes mellitus that affects not just adults but children also with main symptoms like increased amount of urination at closer frequencies accompanied by drinking more water and fluids than infants usually do. Besides polydipsia or increase in fluid consumption there could be excessive eating or polyphagia with weight loss that could be unusual. It is common to note that children suffering from diabetes would in a routine urine analysis show the presence of glucose and ketones, with a blood test confirming it. </p>
  611. <p>Another uncommon disorder that could cause not only increased urination but also excessive thirst is diabetes insipidus. Along with these symptoms there could be other prominent signs like bedwetting at night, irritability accompanied with poor growth. Care is to be taken as excessive loss of fluids from the body could lead to dehydration. This could show up as dilute urine with excess of sodium and serum in blood.  The occurrence of renal tubular acidosis where the infants kidney is not able to properly dispose of acid could also frequency of urination in infants.<br />
  612. Look for these causes in infant frequent urination to find out a solution. </p>

  642. <content type="html" xml:base="http://www.after50health.com/insole-recommendations-broken-down-by-foot-issue.html"><![CDATA[<p>We see a lot of our customers buying insoles. They have many different reasons for doing so, and each reason demands a different sort of product. Below are our top reasons to buy insoles and specific recommendations for each concern.</p>
  643. <p><strong>Plantar Fasciitis / Arch Pain</strong></p>
  644. <p>If you&#8217;re suffering from foot arch pain due to plantar fasciitis or other problems, the answer is often a well-cushioned orthotic arch support. The best choices here are foam orthotic supports that offer either a rigid or semi-rigid footbed. We recommend semi-rigid arch supports for first-time buyers. These deliver a good blend of support, comfort, and flexibility. Rigid orthotic arch supports are ideal for experienced orthotic users who are looking for maximum support. Extra layers of foam are great for alleviating pain as long as you have room for them in your shoes. If your shoes are tight-fitting, try a low-profile insole for compact relief. To learn more about the best insoles for arch pain and plantar fasciitis, check out our <a href="https://www.orthoticshop.com/footwear-for-plantar-fasciitis.html" target="_blank">Plantar Fasciitis Shoes</a> and Insoles page.</p>
  645. <p><strong>Over-Pronation</strong></p>
  646. <p>Pronation is the technical term for the natural tendency of the feet to roll inward when you step forward. When the feet roll too far inward, the result is over-pronation. This may cause foot pain and a lack of stability. An orthotic arch support, either semi or fully-rigid, can help correct over-pronation by keeping the foot properly aligned. The right orthotics deliver support to both the heels and arches, and this will reduce or eliminate over-pronation. We suggest semi-rigid orthotics for first-time users. Rigid orthotic arch supports are best for buyers who are looking for the strongest possible support.</p>
  647. <p><strong>Extended Standing</strong></p>
  648. <p>When professional duties or other demands keep you standing for extended periods, you may develop foot pain. One effective solution to this problem is wearing a <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Ontel-Strutz-Cushioned-Supports-Green/dp/B00850VJVQ" target="_blank">cushioned arch support</a> for gentle support all day long. Cushioned arch supports reduce pressure on all parts of the foot. Foam insoles are especially good for reducing standing pain. You can find a complete list of insoles that help with pain from standing on our Insoles for Standing page.</p>
  649. <p><strong>Morton&#8217;s Neuroma</strong></p>
  650. <p><a href="https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/mortons-neuroma/symptoms-causes/syc-20351935" target="_blank">Morton&#8217;s Neuroma</a> is a condition that manifests itself through sharp, tingling, or burning pains in the forefoot. The source of the pain is having a nerve in the area that is being compressed or irritated. If you have problems with Morton&#8217;s Neuroma, forefoot padding can relieve the pressure being placed on your forefoot. Insoles and inserts that include metatarsal pads can be helpful in this area. Our Morton&#8217;s Neuroma page has more details and a complete list of inserts and insoles that can help relieve the pain.</p>
  651. <p><strong>Metatarsalgia / Pain In The Ball Of The Foot</strong></p>
  652. <p>If you&#8217;re experiencing pain in your forefoot from metatarsalgia or similar conditions, try an insole that includes good top-coat cushioning and a metatarsal pad. Cushioned arch supports often fit the bill. We find many customers can also benefit from added support. In these cases, a semi-rigid or rigid support can help. To relieve pain in the balls of your feet and pain caused by metatarsalgia, see the full insole list on our Metatarsal Insoles &#038; Inserts page.</p>
  653. <p><strong>Morton&#8217;s Toe / Hallux Rigidus / Hallux Limitus</strong></p>
  654. <p>Morton&#8217;s Toe and the Hallux conditions (Rigidus and Limitus) can cause pain through unwanted toe flexing. You may find a stiff insole that prevents toe flexing to be very helpful. Most shoes have flexible toe-boxes that allow unwanted flexing. The right insoles can significantly reduce the amount of flex allowed or even eliminate it entirely. We&#8217;ve highlighted flex-reducing products that work with your existing insoles on our page for Morton&#8217;s Toe, Hallux Rigidus, and Hallux Limitus.</p>
  655. <p><strong>Supination</strong></p>
  656. <p>Supination is also known as under-pronation. It happens when your feet roll too far outward when you walk. The foot&#8217;s natural tendency is to roll inward slightly with each step. An outward roll of the foot can produce discomfort and/or pain. You can stop supination by using a semi-rigid or rigid orthotic arch support. These orthotics deliver constant support to preserve healthy foot alignment. Orthotic arch supports correct supination by delivering support to both the heels and the arches. This discourages supination. First-time orthotic wearers should start with a semi-rigid orthotic. Fully rigid orthotic arch supports are suitable for those who need the most aggressive levels of arch support.</p>
  657. <p><strong>Running / Walking / Shin Splints</strong></p>
  658. <p>People who experience shin splints or those who do significant amounts of running and walking need insoles that can handle support, flexibility, and shock absorption. Cushioned arch supports and semi-rigid orthotic arch supports can both do the job. Insole construction matters a great deal here. You need either an all-gel product or one that has significant gel padding on both the forefoot and the heel. An appropriate support insole will deliver the flexibility you need for varied activity. The insole&#8217;s gel material works to absorb impact shocks and prevent fatigue damage to the knees and feet. See our Walking &#038; Running Insoles page for a range of specific products suitable for use in these situations.</p>
  659. <p><strong>Diabetes / Arthritis</strong></p>
  660. <p>Diabetes and arthritis sufferers need insoles designed to safeguard their feet. The right insoles will not only cushion the everyday shocks your feet are subjected to but also encourage healthy circulation and feature maximum comfort. In order to address the specific features needed in a good diabetic or arthritic insole, we&#8217;ve listed all of the suitable products separately on our Diabetic and Arthritic Insoles page.</p>
  661. <p><strong>Heel Spurs / Heel Pain</strong></p>
  662. <p>If you have heel pain arising from heel spurs or other conditions, the right insole for you is one that delivers lots of cushioning on the heel of the foot. Many products match this description, including both full-length and 3/4-length insoles. There are even heel insert pieces that can relieve heel pain. To learn more, review the products listed on our page on Insoles and Inserts for Heel Spurs and Heel Pain.</p>

  692. <content type="html" xml:base="http://www.after50health.com/how-to-get-better-sleep.html"><![CDATA[<p><strong>1. Get Into A Relaxing Routine Before Bed </strong></p>
  693. <p>One of the best things you can do for yourself, especially if you have trouble sleeping, is to start a healthy and relaxing routine. For example, about 10 minutes before crawling in, dim the lights and do things that typically help you relax. From putting on soothing music to drinking a glass of warm milk, get your body in the &#8220;mood&#8221; for sleeping. </p>
  694. <p>Krieger also says that it&#8217;s about the time you take to unwind your mind and to take a minute and slow down the hectic pace of modern life. So, instead of working towards a breaking point, take 10 or 20 minutes to simply slow down. This will help you have a better quality sleep in your <a href="https://www.slumbersearch.com/sleepys-mattress-reviews" target="_blank">Sleepys mattress</a>.</p>
  695. <p><strong>2. Rid The Room Of Electronics</strong> </p>
  696. <p>You might not realize it, but the phone or laptop that&#8217;s only a few feet away can actually disrupt your sleeping patterns. For example, if you are expecting a text or email, and you take these gadgets to the bedroom, your mind will not shut down until that message comes through. </p>
  697. <p>As tough as it may sound, keep all electronics in another room while you sleep. You&#8217;ll be happy you do it after a couple of days. </p>
  698. <p><strong>3. Keep A Diary </strong></p>
  699. <p>Writing in a diary before going to bed is beneficial in many ways. And while you typically associate it with psychological benefits, the fact that you are writing down the thoughts that keep your mind awake is like telling your mind to relax a little. Everything is written down to handle another day. </p>
  700. <p>You can even use a blank piece of paper that you keep by the nightstand. And if you don&#8217;t like writing too much, go for bullet points and only take down the most important worries keeping you up. </p>
  701. <p><strong>4. Don&#8217;t Look Down </strong></p>
  702. <p>Everyone knows the phrase, &#8220;Don&#8217;t look down&#8221;, and it&#8217;s usually said while climbing great heights. In this case, you don&#8217;t want to think about falling asleep, while trying to fall asleep. This will cause you to focus, and focus calls for attention. You can&#8217;t sleep when you are paying attention to something. </p>
  703. <p>Instead, let your mind wander and let happy thoughts stick around. Forget about sleeping as you linger on these thoughts and just let them run past like a movie. Of course, this is a technique that can take some time, but once you understand it, you won&#8217;t have any problems falling asleep. </p>
  704. <p><strong>5. Stick To A Schedule </strong></p>
  705. <p>The body is connected to an <a href="https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2012/03/your-bodys-internal-clock-and-how-it-affects-your-overall-health/254518/" target="_blank">internal clock</a>, referred to as the body&#8217;s circadian rhythm. Basically, when the sun comes up, the body feels more energized and ready to work. When it gets dark, the body begins to relax and prepare for sleep. </p>
  706. <p>And just like your body follows a specific clock, you should too. In other words, get a specific time you want to be in bed every night, and get a specific time for waking up. Also, make sure you get at least 7 to 8 hours of solid rest. And yes, even on Saturdays and Sundays, stick to the schedule.</p>

While they are nice to look at, is this something you really want to have in your home? We are going to look at some of the reasons you may want to reconsider making this type of purchase.</p>
  737. <p><strong>A Distraction</strong></p>
  738. <p>We have to admit that the sound of flowing water does help, you down and reduce stress. It is a very relaxing sound two-year in the background. However, how long would you be comfortable hearing this noise for? Indoor fountains make a constant noise as the water is always recycling and never-ending. If you work from home or have homework, the sound may actually make you lose your concentration. In addition, if you are an individual who is easily distracted you may become mesmerized with the moving water and not get any work done.</p>
  739. <p><strong>Moisture</strong></p>
  740. <p>An indoor fountain is going to release of aberration into the air of your home. Now, depending upon where you live this may be a good thing or a bad thing. If you happen to live in a humid area, the atmosphere in your home is going to become rather uncomfortable. In fact, the humidity levels may become so high that you need to use a dehumidifier to remove all of the moisture in the air.</p>

  742. <p><strong>Safety Concerns</strong></p>
  743. <p>The vast majority of indoor fountains are quite safe according to <a href="https://www.luxewaterwalls.com/" target="_blank">Luxe Water Walls</a>. However, even when you are as careful as can be accidents can still happen. Having a large full of water in the home can be dangerous to children and pets. Either may become curious and place their heads into the pool. In addition, larger indoor fountains are rather heavy once they have been filled with water. If the fountain is lifted and falls on an individual it could cause serious harm.</p>
  744. <p><strong>Leaks</strong></p>
  745. <p>One of the biggest risks of owning an indoor fountain is its ability to spring a leak. If too much water is placed into the basin, it may splash out and create a wet floor. Or, the basin could crack and not be able to contain the water within it. In either case, this can create serious conditions in the house. If too much water spills out of the fountain the floor may get ruined. Or, if the situation goes unnoticed for an extended period of time the foundation could be damaged. If you have a basement, the water could be down and room possessions that are being stored.</p>
  746. <p>There is no question that owning an indoor fountain can be great. Many people do not feel that the noise is distracting at all and they take precautions against safety and leak issues. However, one still should seriously consider these issues before they purchase a fountain. You do not want to put that much money out on an indoor fountain only to find some unexpected surprises that you do not like. Being informed and researching the product you want to buy is essential. If you do plan on purchasing a fountain, be sure it is a high quality.</p>

  776. <content type="html" xml:base="http://www.after50health.com/6-health-benefits-of-gardening-for-older-people.html"><![CDATA[<p>When done correctly, gardening can bring lots of wealth ranging from bounty harvest to peace and satisfaction. In addition to giving you an opportunity to grow your crops, this exercise packs many health benefits for the gardener. Whether gardening in the backyard vegetable garden, a small patio planter, or in a community garden somewhere, the interactive health and healing benefits are remarkable. This could be the reason why more and more gardens are cropping up in hospitals, prisons, community centers for the homeless, nursing homes, and at-risk youth centers. Gardening brings out the deep sense of well-being and connection to nature, and especially when pruning and weeding. Outlined below are some of the health benefits you get from gardening. </p>
  777. <p><img src="http://www.after50health.com/images/gardening.png" alt="Gardening" /></p>
  778. <p><strong>1. It Helps Boost Your Self-Esteem While Relieving Stress</strong></p>
  779. <p>According to a study conducted in the Netherlands on the effects of gardening on one&#8217;s health, researchers were able to determine that gardening helps lower a person&#8217;s stress levels. The study was conducted on a group of students who would garden for at least 30 minutes in a day, while the other group would remain indoors studying. Add a water feature for even more impact, see this <a href="https://www.outdoorfountainpros.com/blogs/news/outdoor-fountain-pros-guidebook" target="_blank">guidebook on outdoor fountains</a> for details. From the study, the gardening students recorded better moods and had significantly lower levels of Cortisol (a stress hormone) as compared to those studying indoors.  From the study, the researchers were also able to confirm that elevated cortisol levels (chronic) can lead to certain health conditions such as heart disease, cognitive problems, memory loss, obesity, and low immunity. Gardening also helps boost a person&#8217;s self-esteem as the results are tangible. </p>
  780. <p><strong>2. Improves Heart Health Hence Reduced Risk Of Stroke</strong></p>
  781. <p>Gardening can be labor-intensive at times. The need to move around while weeding, watering plants or pruning gives you at least 2.5 hours of moderate-intensity exercise in a week. Unlike a treadmill where you only workout with the machine, gardening lets you engage with nature, making you engage almost all muscles of the body. The moderate-intensity exercise you get from gardening helps burn excess fats from the arteries which again keeps your heart in check.  Seniors who engage in gardening activities also get more exercise hence have a reduced risk of stroke as compared to those that don’t. Exposing your limbs to just 10 minutes of sunshine (while gardening) every day gives your body enough Vitamin D, which also helps reduce the risk of various cancers, osteoporosis, and heart disease.</p>
  782. <p>Regular exercise is particularly crucial and especially where your heart health is an issue. Gardening gives you an opportunity to exercise without pushing your body too far. You even get to enjoy the fruits during the harvesting time. In addition to this, gardening lets your mind wander away from daily stresses of life. Leading a sedentary life only hurts your health. </p>
  783. <p><strong>3. Dexterity and Hand Strength</strong></p>
  784. <p>While we may blame it on age, lack of regular exercise is one of the causes of diminishing hand strength and dexterity. Gardening however enables you to keep working those hand muscles, thus making it possible to tackle possible yet pleasurable activities. This can be confirmed by physiotherapists who recommend gardening and other lightweight activities for stroke patients in rehabilitation programs.  The best thing with gardening is that you can never push your body beyond what you can do, neither do you strain your tendons.  Those with tendonitis, repetitive stress injuries and the carpal tunnel should, however, consider doing a few warm-ups before taking on gardening. Warm-ups help position your body ergonomically and comfortably for the changing tasks while gardening, which again reduces strain on the same. Although it may seem like a simple exercise, gardening does help maintain your hand strength and cognitive functions as well. </p>
  785. <p><strong>4. Improved Brain Health</strong></p>
  786. <p>According to research, <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/07/08/why.gardening.good/index.html" target="_blank">gardening daily reduces the risk of contracting brain-related conditions, and especially dementia by up to 36%</a>. This is according to a long-term study conducted on 3000 adults over a period of 16 years. From the study, active gardeners from the group showed a remarkable reduction in the incidence of dementia by up to 36%. Although other conditions such as Alzheimer&#8217;s may be poorly understood, the researchers believe being active in gardening can help the severity of the condition. This is mainly due to the fact that it helps boost most of our critical functions including problem-solving, endurance, learning, dexterity, strength, and sensory awareness. </p>
  787. <p><strong>5. Immune Regulation</strong></p>
  788. <p>Working in the garden, even for 30 minutes in a day, gives your body enough exposure to get vitamin D. vitamin D is essentially needed for proper functioning of cells, and improved immunity as well. Although you may not have noticed this, individuals who take care of their gardens, interact with nature and even get dirty weeding their gardens are less vulnerable to common colds and flu. This is because they are exposed to Mycobacterium vaccae, a soil bacteria commonly absorbed by vegetables. This bacteria helps alleviate symptoms of psoriasis, asthma and common forms of allergies. Just like the good bacteria found in the gut, mycobacterium is good to the body as it contributes greatly to improved immune response and alleviates depression. </p>
  789. <p><strong>6. Mental Health and Depression</strong></p>
  790. <p>For many people, gardening in the morning or late in the evening gives one a &#8216;lift&#8217; they never experience doing anything else. Breaking the morning sweat in the garden tending to radishes, lettuces, and spinach gives your mind an extra boost, which not only helps more blood flow into the brain but also stimulates cognitive functions.  The other good thing with gardening in the morning is that the morning sweat calls for a warm hot bath or sauna, which also helps elevate your body temperature. This could be refreshing and especially if you had a busy day previously. In addition to this, many people find themselves drinking some water in the morning just before heading to work.  Gardening in the morning and drinking water in the morning kick starts your day in a good mood which lasts the entire day. Starting your day with positivity means you get to tackle stressing moments with ease, which also reduces depression and stress in the workplace.  If you haven&#8217;t started gardening yet, you could start with a small flower garden then take it from there. You will be surprised at the numerous benefits this has.</p>

  821. <p><strong>1) Shun The Sun</strong></p>
  822. <p>The sun is one of your biggest enemies in the battle to preserve the glow of youth. Always use sunscreen when you&#8217;re outdoors. Make sure your product of choice has an SPF rating of at least 30 and provides full spectrum (both UVA and UVB) protection. Remind yourself that UV rays are shining down no matter how sunny or cloudy a day might be; you need sunscreen on darker days too. When you&#8217;re outside for extended lengths of time, remember to reapply your sunscreen regularly to maintain full protection.</p>
  823. <p>Up to 90 percent of the visible signs of aging can be ascribed to ultraviolet sun exposure. UV rays (<a href="https://www.skincancer.org/prevention/uva-and-uvb" target="_blank">UVA and UVB</a>) break down the elastin in the skin and render it dull and saggy. Sun exposure causes wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and age spots. These forms of damage develop over many years, so it&#8217;s vitally important to start protecting yourself early.</p>
  824. <p><strong>2) Up The Number Of Vegetables In Your Diet</strong></p>
  825. <p>The foundation of a healthy diet that promotes a youthful appearance has to be fruits and vegetables. While lean protein and whole grains are important too, plants have to be the foundation. The range of core nutrients provided by vegetables and fruits are vital to healthy aging. The phytonutrients in vegetables can also help protect you from free radicals that cause premature signs of aging.</p>
  826. <p><img src="http://www.after50health.com/images/diet.png" alt="Diet Vegetables" /></p>
  827. <p><strong>3) Always Stay Hydrated</strong></p>
  828. <p>What&#8217;s the simplest thing you can do to promote the look of youth? Boost your water intake! Your skin will look better and your overall wellbeing will improve if you make sure you get six to eight glasses of filtered water every day.</p>
  829. <p>Dehydration wreaks havoc on your skin, making it dry and wrinkled. Ample amounts of water make it easier for your skin cells and underlying tissues to replenish themselves. The result is younger, healthier-looking skin.</p>
  830. <p><strong>4) Get More Exercise</strong></p>
  831. <p>You have to make space in your daily schedule for <a href="https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/obesity-prevention-source/moderate-and-vigorous-physical-activity/" target="_blank">vigorous physical activity</a>. The latest research shows that strenuous exercise (like high-intensity interval training, for example) can slow down the aging process &#8211; at the cellular level! &#8211; by as much as 10 years. Hard exercise promotes better blood flow, carrying more nutrients and oxygen to the body&#8217;s cells. Skin cells are of course included in this invigorating process.</p>
  832. <p>Exercise has deeper health benefits as well, of course. It maintains strength and muscle mass and even boosts the areas of the brain responsible for coordination and motor control. Exercise can reduce the unwanted effects of menopause and boost brain functions like memory, too!</p>
  833. <p><strong>5) Steer Clear Of Tobacco</strong></p>
  834. <p>Smoking is a huge accelerator for the least pleasant parts of the aging process, and one of the most easily avoidable. If you want to preserve your youthful looks as long as possible, ditch your tobacco habit.</p>
  835. <p>Because cigarettes and other forms of tobacco inhibit the body&#8217;s supply of vitamin C, they end up accelerating the formation of wrinkles and the breakdown of collagen in the skin. Smoking also leaches moisture from the skin, making your complexion dry and dull. The simple mechanics of smoking also cause avoidable wrinkles around the mouth.</p>
  836. <p><strong>6) Moderate Your Alcohol &#038; Caffeine Usage</strong></p>
  837. <p>A moderate alcohol intake can actually boost your health, but indulging to excess can turn into a negative instead of a positive.</p>
  838. <p>Both alcohol and caffeine can interfere with your body&#8217;s natural acquisition of vital nutrients and water. Excessive alcohol use can cause permanent dilation of the blood vessels in the face. The result is an undesirable flush and spidery veins that make it harder than it needs to be to maintain a youthful look.</p>
  839. <p><strong>7) Meditation</strong></p>
  840. <p>An outdoor meditation area can be a lovely addition to the home and help you stay healthy in numerous ways. Adding some nice additions such as this water feature from <a href="https://www.outdoorfountainpros.com/collections/outdoor-wall-fountains" target="_blank">Outdoor Fountain Pros</a> could be a notable help. </p>
  841. <p><img src="http://www.after50health.com/images/meditation.png" alt="Meditation" /></p>
  842. <p><strong>8) Use The Right Supplements</strong></p>
  843. <p>There is a wide range of different factors that cause and accelerate the appearance of aging effects on your skin. A healthy diet (see above) is vital to minimizing these effects, but you can also bridge nutritional gaps with carefully-chosen supplements to slow down the impact of aging as much as possible.</p>
  844. <p>Good supplementation can also help you feel younger internally. The right supplements can keep your mood elevated, give you more energy, and strengthen your immune system.</p>
  845. <p><strong>9) Enlist Expert Help</strong></p>
  846. <p>Aging presents us with plenty of facial challenges. The loss of bone density, muscle, and fat make wrinkles and lines easier to see. Frown lines can be built up by repetitive facial expressions, and long-term damage like acne scarring, broken capillaries, and hyperpigmentation can become more prominent. Consult with a professional to explore non-invasive treatments for maintaining and restoring your youthful looks.</p>
  847. <p><strong>10) Consider Reasonable Procedures</strong></p>
  848. <p>Under ideal conditions, healthy living is reflected in a healthy appearance. Sometimes factors beyond our control (from genetics to injuries) rob us of this reward for taking care of ourselves. Don&#8217;t be afraid to explore more intensive options that can improve your looks and your self-image.</p>
  849. <p>If you&#8217;re considering an aesthetic procedure, you can learn a lot about your options by exploring surgeons&#8217; professional organizations. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can all educate you and help you find reliable, board-certified professionals.</p>

  880. <p>Sleep apnea is a dangerous one as it is capable of resulting in death due to stroke or heart attack and hence it is important that the snoring person should get the reason for snoring diagnosed immediately and takes appropriate treatment. </p>
  881. <p>All snoring need not necessarily indicate sleep apnea and a normal snorer may make loud noises where as the person with sleep apnea will tend to snore and he/she may also experience stoppage in their breathing momentarily and these persons will wake up with bated breathing and fall back to sleep again without being conscious about it. </p>
  882. <p><strong>Understanding Sleep Apnea with its Snoring Symptoms</strong></p>
  883. <p>The snoring pattern in a person who suffers from sleep apnea will be different and marked than that of any other normal snoring. Persons who suffer from sleep apnea will experience regular stoppage of breathing during their sleep, and they will wake up with gasping or with a bated breath. Due to stoppage of breathing for a momentary period, the person will tend to breathe stronger to fill the lungs with air and this will result in a louder snoring.</p>
  884. <p>Though the persons with sleep apnea may sleep the whole night, they will feel drowsy in the morning and normally wake up with headache. They may also get sore throat and dry mouth feeling besides memory loss and learning difficulties. </p>
  885. <p>Sleep apnea is categorized into three types and they are obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and mixed sleep apnea. Though you need note relate all snoring to sleep apnea when it comes to treating, the methods may be same or similar for treating both snoring and sleep apnea.<br /> From time immemorial snoring as a problem is known to mankind and snoring may indicate other underlying medical conditions such as sleep apnea.  </p>
  886. <p>During sleep, the breathed in air will vibrate the soft palate tissues and this vibration is heard as snoring outside. There are many methods of treatment for curing snoring and the techniques include change in behaviour or lifestyle changes, weight reduction, using few specific dental devices, medication, use of nasal strips and even surgical intervention. With the advent of many scientific and advanced nano technology, treating snoring and sleep apnea has become easy today.</p>
  887. <p>Out of the various reasons, alcohol consumption or use of sedatives is also said to be instrumental in triggering snoring and hence it is advised that you can avoid consuming alcohol and preferably before going to bed. Further, efforts to reduce your body weight, use of nasal CPAP can also help you to avoid snoring during your sleep. </p>
  888. <p>With regard to surgical intervention few techniques such as diathermy palatal reduction, or surgical straightening of the septum, or removal of tonsils and/or enlarged adenoids is also very effective in treating both sleep apnea and snoring in a person. A recent addition to the treatment method is the snoreplasty in which sclerosing agents will be administered into the palate area of the snoring person and this will help the person to stop snoring.</p>
  889. <p>When it comes to finding an effective treatment for snoring and sleep apnea, then there may not be any one single treatment but you can try more than one treatment in a combination and you are sure to get relieved from your snoring habit and sleep apnea problem. </p>
