SNS Powder Gel Nails – Let Your Nails Talk on Behalf

Rather than focusing only on the eyes, hairs or skin, the modern generation ladies are more willing to have a mark of sophistication on the other parts of their body now. Thus, the ignorance for the nail has stopped and the nails have become one of the most significant parts to flaunt the elegance and class.

The time of those ordinary nail polishes has gone and there are various fresh and new ways which are being followed by the stylists as the fashion trend is going on. The newest feather in the crown is the SNS powder gel nails. It has been widely accepted that nails are one of the main ways to flaunt your style and taste; many of the techniques have been brought into the play. Unlike the others, SNS basically is happened to be an organic and nutritious substitute to gels and acrylics.

How is It Used?

SNS powder gel would be overlaid on your real nails by the professionals regardless of how long or short your nails are and it would be coated on top of your nails clearly. Subsequently, those will be plunged into the colored powders twice. At last, your nails would be filed and equalized before it is sealed by the gel coats. The end result lasts for 2 weeks with the stunning looks, unimaginable shine and without any lifts. But the care you will take for your nails can make a difference. A proper care can stretch the time from 2 weeks to 3 weeks as well.

There are some pros and cons of everything that you will go with. Considering those points, finding out how it can be helpful to you and what is the actual need of yours can make a difference. Below are the benefits and drawback of the technique.

Benefits:

Most of the consumer’s complaints are generally based on the time all the nailing techniques take when they are getting dried. In this case, it takes only two minutes and that also without any light.

If you get a feeling of having an unwanted artificial thing on your body part, it feels really vulnerable. SNS will make a thin layer on your nails to give you a generic feeling.

Least possible fling down of your actual nail can add a flavor to the technique.

The most important thing that is found in the cosmetics so rare is the healthiness. Whether SNS has the vitamin E and calcium mixed in the powder which toughens your nails.

Drawbacks:

The SNS powder gel nails are comparatively more expensive than the other techniques in the market. But if you find the cost worthy, it should not be any problem for you.

The procedure taken by the SNS is more time-consuming than the rest.

Sometimes, it is hardly be said how the color will turn out actually. But it doesn’t make such big issues.

Knowing everything about a product that you are going to purchase is the smartest decision for you. Hopefully, the description above can give you a fair idea how it will go on.

What You Would Want To Know About Your Broken Toe

“I thought I didn’t need to see a Podiatrist for a toe break but this hasn’t been getting any better!” Horace said. I looked down and couldn’t help but smile. I had heard this from Penny and Rod (names have been changed to protect the . . . health information. Please google HIPPA) the week before. It’s an excellent idea to consult your podiatrist whenever you injure your foot, particularly if you suspect a break. Many fractures of the toe can be treated. Depending on the severity of the break, many may respond to conservative treatment, but some might be serious enough to require surgery. Failing to get proper treatment may result in improper healing of the fracture. Deformity in the toe or foot might follow, making it more difficult to wear shoes comfortably, and reducing the function of your foot. Improper healing may also cause arthritis, or other long-term pain.

One type of break is a traumatic fracture, which results from a particular event, such as stubbing your toe on that wretched enormous dresser in the middle of the night, or possibly dropping an armful of bricks on your foot. In the case of Horace, a couple of weeks ago he had been going to get his mail (barefoot) and while returning back to the house tried walking and reading at the same time. Horace was so engrossed in the daily mail he neglected to lift his foot up on the curb at the right time and . . . WHAMMO. This type of fracture may be displaced (the broken bone has shifted from its proper position) or non-displaced (the bone is cracked, or even broken through, but it hasn’t moved from where it’s supposed to be).

Another type of break is a stress fracture, which occurs when repeated strain is put on a bone, resulting in small breaks that develop over time. Athletes who precipitously increase their activity (particularly runners), people with osteoporosis, and those who have abnormalities in the structure of their feet may be most susceptible to this type of fracture.

After taking x-rays of Horace’s foot and diagnosing the fracture we discussed what things he should do to get better quicker. In Horace’s case the break did not require surgical correction. “Horace, you need to transfer your weight to your heel as much as possible.” I produced a small cushioned splint and held it up for him to see. “This splint with the padding will protect the toe.” I demonstrated how it wrapped the toe bringing it securely around the adjacent uninjured one.

I also advised Horace the key to proper healing of breaks is immobilization. Finally I fit Horace for a sexy stiff-soled shoe that would keep the toes open and prevent rubbing as well as make it easier to walk on his heel.

If the bones had been dislocated or highly displaced, I would have needed to realign the bones (aka reduction) in order to get the right pieces to knit together with the other right pieces. Many times I can do this manipulation of the bones without surgery. However, especially with particularly bad breaks/dislocations, surgery may be needed to keep all the pieces of the broken bones together as they heal. Surgery often involves placing pins, screws or plates into the bone fragments to keep everything nicely aligned.

Horace was relieved to know he didn’t require surgery and decided that he would limit his multitasking to walking and chewing gum.

How to Ride a Motorcycle Properly

So you want to ride a motorcycle? This article will address the proper riding techniques and tips and will give you the base information on what you’ll need to know on starting to ride a motorcycle.

Motorcycling is a great deal of fun. But it’s very important to learn how to ride defensively and respect the motorcycle and it’s power. If you start out with this attitude at the outset, you will ensure that you’re entering this high risk activity with thoughtfulness and self-preservation, and it will make the riding experience so much more enjoyable.

Perhaps you know what type of motorcycle you want, or you already own a bike, or maybe you just want some refresher information — no matter who you are or where you are in the process of riding, you can use this online guide and information as a source of information on anything from how to start riding to wearing the proper gear or to whatever.

And please know that the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) offers rider safety and education courses. The courses are covered in more depth further in this article and found as its own section on our site (you can go to our website for more info on the MSF rider courses.

Proper Riding Gear

Whether you are just learning to ride or you’re already an experienced biker, remember to always wear your safety gear. Going down on a motorcycle hurts, there’s no denying it. Have you ever fallen off a bicycle? Remember how badly your skin and hands hurt because they were scraped along the street or sidewalk? Remember how easily your knees and elbows bruised? Now magnify that based on the speed your traveling on the motorcycle. Even if you’re driving around the block in your development or driving in a parking lot, you will easily scrape yourself up worse than any bicycle fall. I’m not stating this to scare you away from riding a motorcycle, I just want to make sure you protect yourself by wearing as much safety gear as possible, including gloves, leather jacket or armored clothing, boots, goggles or sunglasses, and a helmet (which is required by law in most states) . Go to my website to view the proper gear and shopping pages. Once you have your proper riding gear, you’re ready to get on the bike.

Getting On

Before you just jump in the saddle, you should do a T-CLOCS check of the bike. Let me explain —- EVERY TIME before you ride, you should make sure it’s fit to be on the road. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation has a checklist they call T-CLOCS:

T — Tires, wheels (air pressure)

C — Controls (clutch lever, throttle, brakes/pedals, cables, hoses)

L — Light (battery, headlights, turn signals, mirrors)

O — Oil (and other fluid levels)

C — Chassis (the frame, suspension, chain/belt, etc.)

S — Stands (kickstand and/or the center stand )

If the motorcycle checks out just fine, you’re ready to get in the saddle. Always mount the motorcycle by throwing your right leg over the seat. When getting off, always bring your right leg back over the seat. This is done for two very important reasons: 1) The kickstand is on the left side of the bike and that’s where the motorcycle weight is hanging. 2) When getting off, it is very easy to burn your leg on the exhaust pipes on the right side of the bike, and you don’t want to get your leg caught on the seat and pull the bike down on you.

So, starting at the left of the motorcycle, grab a hold of the handlebars, put the weight of your body on your left leg, and lift and throw your right leg over the seat and onto the other side of the bike. Take a seat on the motorcycle. Take your time and get accustomed to the bike. Make sure your mirrors are adjusted properly to where you’re sitting, get used to where the controls are (horn, turn signals, lights, etc.). While the kickstand is still down and holding the bike upright, put your feet on the pegs and get a feel for your leg positioning.

Now before you put that kickstand up and start riding, let’s walk through the controls…..

Controls/Hands&Feet

Let’s go over the basic controls of a motorcycle. Get familiar with the key controls like the brakes, clutch, pedal shifter, throttle, and turn signals. This will enable you to learn fairly easily and then we can work on technique. I say this because you don’t want to be looking down at your feet or your hands while riding.

Let’s start with the right side:

Your right hand is responsible for two major functions in motorcycling – accelerating and braking. If you turn the throttle by twisting the right grip toward you, you apply throttle and give it ‘gas’ to the engine. Do not overdo it here as a little twist will do the trick. If you pull back on that throttle too hard, you’ll end up on your butt before you get out of the driveway. So be gentle with this control.

The right hand also controls the front brakes, just like you would have had on your bicycle. Pulling the lever toward you applies the front brakes. You want to gently add pressure to braking as you don’t want to yank the lever too hard, forcing the front brakes to lockup, thereby causing the bike to skid, and possibly end up in an accident. Most bikes are able to come to a stop using a two-fingered technique (your index and middle finger on the brake level while the thumb is under the throttle and the other fingers are on top of the throttle). Some bikes require all fingers around the lever and the thumb under the throttle. You’ll need to assess and use whatever technique works best with your bike.

Your right foot is used to operate the rear brake, but just note that when you use the front brakes, the rear is a little less effective. See, what happens is when you break with your front brakes, the bike’s weight is transferred to the front. Rear brake application is more useful during low speed maneuvering.

Use this as an approximate guide for braking: Slow speeds up to about 10 mph, you can use your rear brake. Speeds above 10 mph, you can use your front brake lever. Now, in any case where you need to come to a quick and sudden stop — USE BOTH BRAKES!! It’s been proven that using both brakes in an ’emergency stop’ can cut the stopping distance by more than half.

Clutch

Now the left side:

The clutch is the lever just forward of the left hand grip. Sportbikes typically only require only a two-fingered operation (or pull of the lever), while other bikes like the cruisers and touring motorcycles typically require your whole hand to pull the lever and engage the clutch. The clutch is used as a way to connect and disconnect the engine from the transmission. If you’ve ever ridden a stick shift in a car, you understand what I’m referring to. In essence, when you pull in the clutch lever, you’re cutting off the power to the rear wheel and bike will coast as if it’s in neutral even if you’re in a specific gear. Once you release the clutch, the engine kicks in and if you’re in gear, and will power the rear wheel.

I’d suggest you practice this part before you ride off for the first time. Practice by gradually and slowly pulling the clutch with your left hand. Don’t think of it as off or on. You need to find that spot where the engine begins to engage. Each bike is different, so you have to find that ‘sweet spot’. I’ll give you more info when we get to starting the bike and riding off.

Shifting

Motorcycles shift differently than cars. The thought process is the same (Pull clutch/throttle off, shift, release clutch/accelerate), the motorcycle shifting is handled by moving the left foot lever (shifter) up or down with the left foot. The typical shift patters for motorcycles are:

— 6th gear (if applicable to your bike)

— 5th gear

— 4th gear

— 3rd gear

— 2nd gear

— Neutral

— 1st gear

Most motorcycles fit this pattern, which is referred to as the “1 down, 5 up” or “1 down, 4 up”. Finding neutral with your left foot will take some getting used to, but you’ll pick it up pretty quick. The gauge in front of you will have a green “N” that will indicate you are in Neutral. There have been comments and arguments from all over stating that you can shift without using the clutch and it won’t hurt anything. I agree that you CAN shift without using the clutch. My argument is that you SHOULD use the clutch when you shift. Over the long haul of your motorcycle, it will be worth it to use the clutch every time.

I mentioned it earlier with shifting, but here’s how the shift should be done: If at a complete stop, pull in the clutch with your left hand, shift down to first gear with your left foot, ease off the clutch until you feel the motorcycle moving forward and give it a little throttle. If you are already moving, pull in the clutch with your left hand and ease back on the throttle with your right hand, shift gears with your left foot, ease off of the clutch your left hand and twist the throttle to continue the acceleration. I know it sounds like a lot to remember, but when you’re moving, everything happens quickly. Some happen simultaneously. Pull clutch/throttle off, shift, release clutch/throttle on.

Starting it up

Ok, we’ve covered a lot of functionality of the motorcycle, and now we’re going to ‘fire it up’ and start the engine. Most motorcycles these days no longer need to be kick started. We all have that image of the biker jumping up and thrusting his leg down to get the bike started. Not anymore. Here are the steps to follow to start up your engine:

— If you have a choke on your bike, pull it out completely

— Turn the key to the ignition position (you’ll see all the gauges come on)

— Flip the red kill switch down to the on position

— Hold in the clutch (not necessary if you’re in Neutral, but a good habit to just ‘make sure’.)

— Push the engine start button (black button located below the red kill switch)

— Slowly release the clutch (make sure you’re in Neutral – the green N will be lit up)

If you have a carbureted bike, you may need to twist the throttle a little to get gas into the cylinders. If it’s fuel injected, there is no need to throttle.

Warming up/Choke

Warming up a car engine is basically a thing of the past. But a motorcycle engine requires the rider to trust the engine will perform at its optimal level and therefore, must be warmed up before taking off and riding. Once the engine has turned over, allow it to sit idle for a minute to several minutes, and do not rev the engine during this time. Revving the engine can cause issues as the oil may not get properly distributed to the moving parts. Again, if your bike has a choke, begin pushing the choke back in until the motorcycle is idling properly and not sputtering. You’ll get used to the sound of your engine and will easily know when the engine is warmed up. You can use the temperature gauge as a general guide that your motorcycle is warmed up and only start off when you’re confident your engine won’t sputter or fail because it’s not properly warmed up.

Kickstand

Today, most motorcycles have an automatic shut-off if you try to put the bike into gear while the kickstand is down. So, before you attempt to switch into first gear, balance the bike while sitting on it, and use your left heel to pull the kickstand up into place. If you have a bike that has a center-stand, the process is quite different. You’ll need to stand up while straddling the bike and rock the bike forward in order to get the stand retracted.

Now let’s get riding!

Get going

Now that you’ve gone through all the preliminary steps of making sure you’re wearing the proper gear, checked the bike over to make sure no issues (T-CLOCS), are now comfortable with where the controls are, how to shift, how to brake, etc., you are now ready to ride!

Here are some of my suggestions for getting the feel and taking it slow: Practice where the clutch engages the engine – pull the clutch all the way in, and shift down into first gear. Hold it there and relax. Very smoothly and slowly, start releasing the clutch. At a point somewhere halfway between pulling it all the way in and having it all the way out, you should feel the bike start to lurch forward. This is the ‘sweet spot’ where the clutch engages the engine/transmission and the rear wheel begins to move.

Now take your time and just play with this feeling. Let the clutch out slightly until the bike moves forward, then pull it back in. Do it again. Do it again. Get comfortable with this feeling.

Ok, now that you’ve got the feel for where the clutch engages, now it’s time to move. As the motorcycle begins to move forward, twist the throttle with your right hand just slightly to give it some gas and you will start moving forward. Once you start moving, pull those feet up onto the pegs. Get comfortable moving with the bike. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to keep the bike stable once moving forward. Once you’re moving at a rate of up to about 10-12 miles per hour, you’ll hear and feel your engine race and you’ll need to pull in the clutch/close the throttle, shift upward with your left foot (pump it upward), release the clutch and twist the throttle to accelerate. It may sound like a lot to do in little time, but trust me, it’ll come naturally with practice. Do the same (Pull clutch/close throttle, shift up, release clutch/twist throttle) to pump the shifter up again to get into 3rd, etc. You also do the same to downshift the bike into a lower gear, except instead of pumping the shifter upward you are pumping it downward. To come to a very controlled and steady stop, you can downshift your way and let the engine do the slowing for you. Again, practice this and it will come naturally to you.

Turning

Now you’re a rider…but wait, what about turning the motorcycle!? Have you ever ridden a bicycle? Ok, if you have, it’s almost the same with turning a motorcycle. Anything under approximately 8-10 mph, you actually turn the handlebars to steer the motorcycle. Once you get over about 8-10 mph, there’s a lean that’s involved. Say your motorcycle is at 35 mph and you’re coming up to a right hand turn. Slow the bike down and downshift to where you are comfortable BEFORE you get to the turn (use 2nd gear as an example). Say you’re now at 12mph as you enter the turn. Push the right handlebar to the left slightly and lean to the right to make the right turn. Yes, I said that correctly. With your right hand, you push the right side handlebar slightly to the left to make a right hand turn. Push left, lean right, go right. It’s called countersteering and it works. Most bikers will tell you ‘that’s not right’, but trust me, they are doing this exact thing and sometimes don’t realize it. And if you take the safety course, they will cover this subject. You can also practice these exercises in a controlled area like a parking lot. Click here to view the various motorcycle exercises

All of the above that I’ve discussed takes practice. The idea is to start and stop and ride as smoothly as possible. This will be your key to a safe and incredibly exciting time on the road with the wind in your hair, bugs in your teeth, freedom that only comes with riding a motorcycle. Remember to check out the riding courses offered in your area. Enjoy! And Safe Riding!

Examples of Common Types of Medical Malpractice Injuries

There are many different injuries that can be caused by medical malpractice. One of the most common types is birth injury. Birth injuries can arise due to complications during childbirth, leading to injury or injury to the infant or mother. Death or serious injury may occur due to a physician’s failure to provide adequate prenatal care to the mother, as well as proper care during delivery. Examples of medical malpractice injuries during childbirth include:

· Failure to conduct blood tests designed to identify fetal abnormalities;

· Failure to provide proper prenatal care;

· Failure to perform a Caesarian section delivery when required for the safety and health of the baby or mother;

· Rushing the delivery process, with the result of the baby being born breech and with broken bones;

· Failure to provide proper medical care to a baby born prematurely.

As a result of the medical malpractice examples provided above, a baby can suffer many serious injuries. Some examples of birth injuries include cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy or brachial palsy, facial paralysis, or clavicle fracture. Death of the baby is also a possible result of medical malpractice injuries in many instances.

Surgery is another area that is commonplace out of which medical malpractice injuries and claims may arise. Typically such claims are caused by a failure to engage in proper pre-operative planning or care. The result can be disastrous, often leading to serious, life-altering injuries or death. Surgical injuries may be caused by the improper administration of anesthesia, performing the surgery poorly and below the acceptable standard of care, puncturing or cutting internal organs, performing the operation on the wrong body part, operating on the wrong patient, leaving surgical instruments inside the patient after sewing the patient up, or failing to identify and treat post-operative infections. As a result of such negligence, a patient may suffer from blindness, asphyxia, paralysis, injury to the organs, brain injuries, amputation, cardiovascular injuries, coma, or death.

Other surgery related negligence that gives rise to medical malpractice injuries and claims involves the necessary sterile environment that is vital during surgical procedures. Specifically, it is imperative that a sterile environment is maintained throughout a surgical procedure to avoid infections or bleeding from occurring. If infection results, the consequences can be fatal to the patient. Using the wrong blood type during blood transfusions can also cause serious infection.

Misdiagnosis or the failure to diagnose a disease is also a common medical malpractice injury. These types of cases typically involve serious, often fatal diseases, where a failure to timely diagnose the disease can be the difference between life and death. Cancer is a perfect example where a failure to properly or timely diagnose the disease could be a death sentence to the patient. Failing to order medical tests, follow a patient closely, or recognize the telltale signs of a disorder are all examples of this type of malpractice. The result of a failure to diagnose a serious disease or condition in a patient, as well as a misdiagnosis, may lead to serious disease, chronic pain and often death.

The Ultimate Hotwife Lifestyle

What many men — and even fewer women — realize when they first start taking the idea of hotwifing and cuckolding as a serious possibility for them, is they are subtly changing the dynamic of their relationship and setting themselves up for a true lifestyle change.

In other words, it goes far beyond just trying out a new sexual position or technique, because of the profound changes it has on both of them in terms of how they see their roles in their relationship.

While this sounds scary, it’s actually exciting and usually beneficial for both of them. For men in particular it typically means his fantasy becomes fully realized and in fact far exceeds his wildest expectations.

Because as a woman grows into the role she truly begins to understand her feminine power and how it affects her husband — and if the relationship is strong (as it must be be if you ever hope to make a success of hotwifing), this is going to be entirely to their mutual benefit.

Because the culmination of the hotwife lifestyle, where it truly becomes the ultimate hotwife lifestyle, is when a woman’s sexuality dominates and defines their marriage. In other words, their life together revolves around her need for sexual expression with other lovers.

She does of course involve her husband in this, and there is no reason for her not to be even more sexually active with him than she was before, but it also means a great deal of her emotional energy is invested in seeking, seducing and fucking other men.

The good news is she will typically fully involve her husband in this, too. For example, if she’s going out on a ‘date’ with her lover, she will get her husband to help her bathe and prepare. On her return she will get him to help her wash and then tease and torture him with the exquisite details of her liaison.

Or, she will, say, invite her lover to the marital home for the night, and her husband will be cast in the role of servant. It’s not to say he’s especially submissive or subservient, but his role is to assist and support her by cooking a meal, serving it, pouring wine and then clearing up afterwards, while she takes her lover upstairs to the marital bed.

Her husband might then join them and be permitted to watch, or may be banished to a spare room where he will be reduced to simply listening to the sounds of his wife and her lover having hot, passionate no-holds-barred sex in his bed.

Far from being cruel, the man enjoys this, and his wife is perfectly aware of it, so she will usually ‘play up’ to the occasion by being even dirtier and more vocal than she would otherwise.

Indeed, many women will often engage in many sexual activities with their lovers they won’t engage in with their husbands, especially when the husband is watching and will feel the fill emotional impact of this seeming ‘unfairness’. But in truth, he likes it and loves her for it, because the whole thing is one big turn on for him.

This is the ultimate hotwife lifestyle, and what most men with the fantasy secretly crave.

Home Remedies For Herpes

Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease. Genital Herpes is a common viral infection caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV).

There are two herpes simplex viruses: Herpes Simplex Type 1 (HSV-1) and Herpes Simplex Type 2 (HSV-2).

Herpes is spread through direct contact and it is equally common in males and females.

Causes of herpes:

Genital herpes can be caused by either the herpes simplex virus type 1 or type 2.

HVS type 1 usually infects the lips and when the lips are infected sores called fever blisters or cold sores are present. However, HVS type 1 can infect the genital area and produce sores there.

HVS type 2 is the usual cause of genital herpes. However, it also can infect the mouth during oral sex. A person who has genital herpes can pass or transmit the virus to an uninfected person during sex.

Symptoms of Herpes:

Most people who have herpes do not know because they never have any symptoms, or they do not recognize any symptoms they might have. When symptoms are present, they can be different in each person. Usually the symptoms will appear within two to ten days. The first episode of the symptom of herpes usually last two to three weeks.

Symptoms of a genital herpes outbreak include: itching or burning feeling in the genital or anal area, pain in the legs, buttocks, or genital area, discharge of fluid from the vagina, feeling of pressure in the abdomen, fever, headache, muscle aches, painful or difficult urination, vaginal discharge and swollen glands in the groin area.

Herpes can be spread between outbreaks when there are no sign or symptoms present.

Treatment of Herpes:

The goal of treatment for genital herpes is to provide relief from the discomfort of herpes sores and to reduce the time it takes for an outbreak to heal. Treatment works best if it is started as soon as possible after an outbreak begins.

Home treatment and prevention for herpes:

Most herpes simplex infections that develop on the skin can be managed at home with over-the-counter painkillers and symptomatic relief.

To reduce discomfort from herpes sores:

  1. Take warm sitz baths or wash the area with warm water 3 or 4 times a day.
  2. In between sitz baths, keep the water sores clean and dry.
  3. Using a hair dryer to dry off the sores may be more comfortable than using a towel.
  4. Wear cotton garments to absorb moisture better than those made from synthetic material.

Nonprescription medicines may reduce the pain and fever from genital herpes.

To lower the risk of recurrent outbreaks, reduce or avoid factors that trigger outbreaks such as overexposure to sun, fatigue, irritation of the genital area, and stress.

Ayurvedic tips to avoid outbreaks:

Avoid:

  1. Spicy, sour, fried and junk food, which aggravates vata.
  2. Precipitating factors.
  3. Sleeping in afternoon.
  4. Meat products over fried or deep fried in oil or fat.
  5. Charred and overcooked food.
  6. Consuming opposite food like fish and milk etc.
  7. Physical exertion after a meal and
  8. Taking bath immediately after exercise or heavy outdoor work.

Include honey, pomegranate, and fruits of Emblica officinals, legumes, dates and raisins in the diet.

Practice yoga and meditation to control emotional disturbances.

Herbal and supplement remedies for herpes simplex include:

Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea)

Siberian ginseng

Aleo vera

Bee products that contain propolis, a tree resin collected by bees.

Lysine

Zinc

 Kyphoplasty Spine Surgery

Description of Kyphoplasty Surgery

During kyphoplasty surgery, a small incision is made in the back through which the doctor places a narrow tube. Using fluoroscopy to guide it to the correct position, the tube creates a path through the back into the fractured area through the pedicle of the involved vertebrae.

Using X-ray images, the doctor inserts a special balloon through the tube and into the vertebrae, then gently and carefully inflates it. As the balloon inflates, it elevates the fracture, returning the pieces to a more normal position.

The balloon is removed and the doctor uses specially designed instruments under low pressure to fill the cavity with a cement-like material called polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). After being injected, the pasty material hardens quickly, stabilizing the bone.

Recovery from kyphoplasty

Pain relief will be immediate for some patients. In others, elimination or reduction of pain is reported within two days. At home, patients can return to their normal daily activities, although strenuous exertion, such as heavy lifting, should be avoided for at least six weeks…

Candidates for kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty cannot correct an established deformity of the spine, and certain patients with osteoporosis are not candidates for this treatment. Patients experiencing painful symptoms or spinal deformities from recent osteoporotic compression fractures are likely candidates for kyphoplasty. The procedure should be completed within 8 weeks of when the fracture occurs for the highest probability of restoring height…

citalopram side effects weight gain

Nearly all discriminatory serotonin reuptake inhibitors, mixed serotonin/norepinephrine re-uptake inhibitors, and tricyclic antidepressant antidepressants case sleep freakishnesses to some extent. These antidepressant drugs have big dose-dependent effects on fast eye movement (REM) sleep, inducing reductions in the overall amount of REM sleep over the night and delays the zero entry into REM sleep (increased REM sleep onset latent period (ROL)), both in organic subjects and blue patients. The antidepressants that increase serotonin function appear to have the brilliant effect on REM sleep. The reducing in REM sleep is widest early in treatment, but gradually returns towards baseline during extended therapy; yet, ROL continues long. Following discontinuation of therapy the come of REM rest tends to rebound. Some of these drugs (i.e., bupropion, mirtazapine, Serzone, trazodone, trimipramine) come along to have a narrow or minimal issue on REM slumber.

Nervous system side effects of citalopram including cephalalgia (22%), dry mouth (25%), increased sweating (13%), quaking (2%), lightheadedness (2%), and sleep freakishnesses have been covered. Paraesthesia, and megrim have been according frequently. Hyperkinesia, giddiness, hypertonia, extrapyramidal distract, leg cramps, involuntary muscle muscle contractions, hypokinesia, neuralgia, dystonia, extraordinary gait, hypoesthesia and dyssynergia have been reported infrequently. Antipsychotic Agents malignant syndrome, 5-hydroxytryptamine syndrome, exaggerated coordination, hyperesthesia, ptosis, daze, and choreoathetosis have seldom been reported. Akathisia, dyskinesia, and special mal turmoils have been reported to be temporally affiliated with citalopram side effects.
Gastrointestinal

Citalopram and side effects taking nausea (up to 25%), diarrhea (8%), and dyspepsia (2%) have been according. Increased saliva and gas have been reported oft.

Where Comfort Food Meets Healthy Food

Comfort food is anything, which makes us feel good, and it is often directly linked to the foods we grew up with, made with love by our mothers and grandmothers.

Everyone has their own idea of comfort food and popular dishes include homemade macaroni and cheese, meatloaf with mashed potatoes, apple pie with ice cream, chocolate chip cookies and generously topped pizza recipes.

High in Flavor but in Fat Too

Do you see a pattern in the above foods? Comfort food is often high in calories and fat and this is what makes it comforting. How many people would say their idea of comfort food is a plateful of broccoli?

As well as enjoying comfort foods like the above, the current generation is becoming more aware of making healthy food choices. We want less fat and fewer calories but without sacrificing flavor. We might indulge in our favorite comfort foods less often or have smaller portions. Sometimes though, this can make us feel deprived.

Home Cooking is the Answer

The best way to make sure you know exactly what you are eating is to cook it yourself. Before you roll your eyes and claim not to have the time, think about the cooking methods we use today and what is available. You can get ready chopped ingredients, pizza crusts, which are ready to top and bake. Microwaves and pressure cookers make speedy work of cooking our food and blenders, food processors, and other gadget speed up the cooking process too.

If you want to make a healthy pizza recipe, for example, you can buy a whole-wheat pizza crust (or make one) and top it with delicious ingredients. Use low fat cheese if you want. Be generous with the vegetable toppings to fill you up. Add herbs and spices for an interesting flavor and bake it for twenty minutes.

A takeout pizza is expensive as well as fatty, but you will be able to put whatever you like in a homemade pizza. The following recipe shows you just how easy a healthy pizza is to make.

Healthy Chicken and Tomato Pizza

This deliciously simple recipe makes four servings of pizza and each serving has fewer than three hundred calories. You will get the wonderful flavors of chicken, tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella with every mouthful and this is one comfort food you can enjoy without any guilt.

Low fat cheese melts better than fat free cheese, so that is recommended for this pizza. In addition, oil helps cheese to melt, so a few squirts of cooking spray over the pizza before you bake it is a good idea.

You will need:

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 10 oz package of refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 cup shredded low fat mozzarella
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 4 oz cooked chicken, in 1-inch cubes
  • 3 plum tomatoes, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal

How to make it:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 12 inch pizza pan in cooking spray and sprinkle the cornmeal over it. Press the refrigerated dough into the pizza pan, making it thicker at the edges. Arrange the chicken and tomatoes on the dough, then sprinkle on the pepper and basil. Add the mozzarella and bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.

Four Types of Bonds of Love Between Man and Woman

The world is extremely mysterious. Every day we see many things that we take for granted without knowing how and why this happens. From billions of years people saw apple falling on the ground, yet they never thought why apple falls to the ground and does not go up. Newton for the first time thought, that there must be some force that must be pulling apple down to earth. This thought resulted to the discovery of gravity, the universal force of attraction that existed between all material entities of the universe since its origin. Gradually, scientists also discovered the electrical and magnetic forces between electrical charges and magnetic substances. Yet scientists could never find any satisfactory answer as to why different types of materials attract or repulse?

What is true in the world of particle is also true in the world of living beings. Every specie of the world gets attracted towards the member of opposite sex. Yet hardly any answers as to why it happens. We all as human beings are aware of the force of attraction that pulls us towards each other, yet we can not know why it happens.

The Reason for Attraction

While scientists have no reason to explain why material attracts, yet they have discovered some reason for the attraction between male and female species using the theory of evolution. They believe that the attraction between male and female species in this world is due to their desire to mate so that they reproduce children. These theories are based on the Darwin’s evolution principle as no spies would survive otherwise than reproduction. Yet the answer is incomplete as even after the people have produced the children, the forces of attraction des not diminish.

Studies show that certain physical characteristics stimulate the brain’s hypothalamus, leading to elevated heart rate, perspiration, and feelings of sexual arousal. What leads to this response? Perhaps the most obvious is a youthful appearance, which is linked to reproductive capacity. [Buss, David M. The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating. New York: HarperCollins, 1994] Women are similarly attracted to men for what they have to offer in terms of reproduction.

Yet the dull scientific research always misses the mystery of the universe. What causes heart rate, perspiration and feelings to rise? These actions seem nothing less than a miracle though we know that they happen. Einstein captured these thoughts in the following words

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

The clue to the physical attraction can be found from our knowledge of physics. For example, we all know that opposite charges attract. We know that all materials are neutral in their natural state. However they gets charged when electrons are removed from the material which make them positively charged while the matter having excess electrons are negativity charged. Hence the opposite charges attract so that they can neutralize their charges and come back to their original conditions. Same explanation exists for the magnetic particles.

We can also explain the attractions due to gravity using the same principles as even science believes that all matter and energy were one before the big-bang. Hence all maters seems to attract towards each other to attain the original neutral state of the matter and energy.

Using the same principle, it can be said that perhaps the attraction between the opposite sexes is due to their desire to become one as they were one sometime in past. We call it love as we know that it exists (like gravity) yet we can’t know why it exists. Since every human being is not only a body but also mind, soul and spirit (God), hence four types of love exists between the species of the human race.

1. Physical Bonds: The Basic Instinct

The most primitive and fundamental for of love between male and female is due to the differences in their body. The physical designs are complementary to each other which attracts towards each other. People get satisfaction and pleasure in the company of the person of the opposite sex. Even touch of hand is pleasurable and transmits energy and love. The reason seems to be chemical as the body shows increased flow of body fluids and chemicals when the physical bonding between male and females takes place.

The physical bonding between boy and girl is expressed by Tina Turner is one of the song “What’s Love Got To Do With It” that captured te imagination of billions of people all over the world in the eighties.

You must understand

That the touch of your hand

Makes my pulse react

That it`s only the thrill

Of boy meeting girl

Opposites attract

It`s physical

Only logical

You must try to ignore

That it means more than that

[Chorus]

Oh whats love got to do, got to do with it

What`s love but a second hand emotion

What`s love got to do, got to do with it

Who needs a heart

When a heart can be broken

……………………….

Physical Bonding is the oldest and most fundamental form of love that exits between man and woman. Prostitutions are considered to be the oldest profession of the world that humanity discovered to tap this attraction between male and female.

2. Mental Bonds: Friendship

While the animals find only the physical bonding between the opposite sexes as they fail to raise much above the physical level, male with their increased mental faculty found another form of boding that binds males and females. This bond also exists between the members of same sexes.

Friendship is found between the people having complementary thoughts. In the words of Mencius

“Friendship is one mind in two bodies.”

The mind of every person desires to know what it does not know so as to make itself whole. That knowledge may be living with someone elses mind. The friendship stems from the desire of two people to share their thoughts so that their minds grow and become complete.

The mind of male and females are as complementary as their bodies. Thus every man finds a different way of looking at the world, when he sees the worlds through the eyes of the woman. Thus a man who has good friendship with women is the epitome of “goodness” as his mind is fully grown up. On the contrary, the people who does not have friends in the member of opposite senses, are truly evil without doubt as their view is extremely unbalanced. All dictators and despots never had friendship with women and the list includes Hitler, Stalin and Mao though they had physical bonding with the women. Hence their minds were never truly evolved. The mind of a person can have the satisfaction, tranquility and peace only if it has friends in the members of opposite sex.

3. Emotional Bonding: The Feeling of Love

The most beautiful and powerful relationship that exits between the male and female is emotional. All emotions spring automatically in people due to the desire of souls to become one. The souls of a man and woman are complementary to each other as they originate from the same source. This is not only a philosophical truth but also a physical truth. Hence they always aspire to meet each other so as to balance each other like the opposite electrical charges or magnets of opposite poles.

The emotional bonding between a man and a woman is often so powerful that people even sacrifice their lives or kill themselves in their attempt to become one. Love is often called the fetal attraction as it is responsible for most of the crimes of this world.

Love is like a chemical reaction that transforms the souls of man and woman. People in love are changed from their core due to the transformation of their soul just like hydrogen and oxygen loses their identity when they combine to make the drop of water.

Love alone brings peace and happiness in the life of people which can not be bought with all the wealth of the world.

4. Spiritual Bonding: God in All

Man and woman also share the highest level of spiritual bonds with each other. The spiritual relationship is based on the non-physical relationship between the people. In this type of relationship, people have no expectation from each other as they all seems to merge their identity with God or Holy Spirit that is the origin of all entities of the universe.

The spiritual or nonphysical bonding exists between the people of opposite sexes in many forms. It is manifested in the form of love to mother, love to children, love to siblings and at later stage of the life even between the love of spouse. Spiritual love is the final stage of love between every person when the bonding evolves to its highest level. The seed of this love is always present in the person and it is first manifested in the child with his or her love of mother. Gradually all other forms of love diminish and only the spiritual love remains in the most evolved human beings in this world like Jesus, Buddha or Gandhi. This form of love is truly selfless and unconditional.

The Evolution of Human Bonding

All bonding between human beings can be classified in the four types viz. body, mind, soul and spirit. The journey of life starts from the spiritual bonding of love that alone exists in a child. However as the body, mind and soul of the person grows in this world, the bonding of love gets manifested in different forms. While in case of animals , the bonding hardly crosses the physical level, in man it evolves from physical to mental to emotional and finally takes a full circle and comes back to the level of spiritual level. Spiritual love makes a man divine and integrates him with God so that he achieves his salvation or goal of life. The cycle of life continues till a man realizes his spiritual love with God and man.

What Are The Common Zithromax Side Effects?

Bacterial infections have been one of the most leading causes of diseases, and these diseases can range from mild to severe, and if left untreated can sometimes eventually lead to death. But with the past and present clinical advances, bacterial infections are easily countered by different kinds of antibiotics that are readily available online or in the market.
Zithromax, also known by its generic name as azithromycin, is a type of drug termed as a macrolide antibiotic. These drugs are known to treat many kinds of infections including respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. they are also used to treat middle ear infection, pneumonia, tonsillitis, and strep throat in children. Even though Zithromax is considered safe for use by almost everyone, there certain health conditions that can raise concerns and must therefore be discussed with your health care professional, if you have had a liver disease, kidney disease, myasthenia gravis, a heart rhythm disorder, or a history of Long QT syndrome, then you may have to undergo several special tests and doses readjustments before you can safely take in Zithromax.
Though the use of zithromax is generally considered safe and is tolerated quite well by most of its users, there can still be some cases when you might have to experience some of its mild and serious side effects. There are also other persons who develop allergic reactions by taking Zithromax, immediately stop taking the medication whenever any signs of allergy come up, which includes: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. The less serious side effects of Zithromax include: mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation; stomach pain or upset; dizziness, tired feeling, or headache; nervous feeling, sleep problems (insomnia); vaginal itching or discharge; mild itching or skin rash; ringing in your ears, problems with hearing; or decreased sense of taste or smell. These mild side effects can easily be treated by your health care provider and at times, treatment may not be always necessary. Several of the serious side effects of taking Zithromax are: diarrhea that is watery or bloody; chest pain, uneven heartbeats; nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); or fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash. If any of the serious symptoms occur, immediately seek medical attention to ensure your safe health.

How to Install You New Stampede String

The stampede string, what is it?

What I am referring to by a stampede string or cord is the braided horsehair that is attachment to a Cowboy hat, or other styles of hats as well, to secure the hat on your head. It usually hangs down nearly to the belt buckle and often ends with a horsehair tassel dangling on the end of the strings. At least that is how Knot-A-Tail’s strings are made.

These stampede strings, cords or drawstrings are now decorated with a variety of materials. The can be made from horse hair, Rawhide, braided leather. The name “stampede string” has come to describe these cords as an obvious result of application-because a properly attached stampede string will keep your hat on even in the middle of a cattle stampede!

More than once, while attending some community Horse shows, I have observed a stampede string being fashioned out of twine, straight off the hay bales they brought with them. If you have ever lost points at a horse show for losing you hat, which I do believe is a 5 second penalty, they you also might need a stampede string.

The looped style stampede string

This type forms a Hat Band

Knot-A-Tail has 15 different styles of stampede strings and each style has at least 2 to 3 color combinations ranging from horse hair, leather and rawhide so there is quite a lot of different stamped string styles available to choose from. However, there are mainly just two types of stampede strings: the looped style and the cotter pin. You will want to know which type will work for you and how it is installed before you look at purchasing a stampede string.

The first type is the looped stamped string. The looped style stampede string requires two holes be place in the brim of the hat. The holes should be as close to the lining of the hat as possible just behind the ears, or wherever you find the stampede string the most comfortable. I usually place the hat on the customers head and them I can see just where the stampede string should rest.

Making the holes in the hat

Two small holes are needed to install a looped stampede string.

Once you find exactly where you want the stampede string, you will have to place two small holes in the hat. I like using an awl, which is a tool that has a small sharp point and the shaft gradually gets thicker. The awl easily spreads the hat material apart and if you are carefully, the awl will not cut through the material but just separate the material.

Again, make sure you know the exact spot for the holes before you start. Next, start slowing pushing the awl upward. You want to make the hole from the bottom of the brim towards the top. After countless times of installing a looped stampede string, I have found that the awl goes easier through the material from the bottom to the top and the hat holds it’s shape better.

Do not force the awl though, just gently and with a standing push let it work its’ way through the material. Now test the size of the hole, by sliding one of the end loops of the stampede string though the hole. (the end loops are the loops that are on the opposite ends of the tassels) There is one loop for each side. The end loops just loop back through themselves, so don’t worry if the loops come un-looped. Just note how the loops are done, so you can redo them once you have slide the loops through the holes.

You want the fit to be tight. It is best if you actually make the hole too small and redo it a few time, rather than making one big hole the first time. Once you have threaded the end loops you are basically done.

If the end loops still have the loops in tack, just open the end loops bigger, because they form a Hat Band around the crown of the hat. If you un-did the loops, just make the loop again. The loop is like the loop on a Lariat. Don’t worry, you can basically, not harm the stampede string unless you cut it somehow. Anyway, the looped stampede string are so long because the loops are made to become a Hat Band. So just cross the loops over the crown of the hat. Push the strings down on the crown where a hat band would rest and you are all done.

That’s it for the looped stamped string. Just adjust the slider under your chin and you are ready to go.

The cotter pin stampede string.

It is easy to install a cotter pin Stampede string.

The cotter pin type is by far the easiest to install, perhaps that is why it is so popular today. Start by placing the hat on your head and hold the stampede string to the spot that fells the most comfortable. This will depend on the person, some like in front of the ear, alongside the ear, while others like it behind the ear. If you wear you cowboy hat slightly tilted back on your head, then you might want to put it behind the ear for better balance.

Just mark the spot with your finger. Place the hat on upside down on the crown. You will see that the lining has threads where the lining is sewn into the hat. Pick a gap between two of the threads that comes as close as possible to where you want the stampede string to be placed. Slip the cotter pin carefully between the treads.

On the better made hats the threads are close together, but just wiggle the cotter pin through carefully. You do not want to cut the thread on the lining. Push the cotter pins all the way trough just to the end of the cotter pin, but not any of the stamped string.

Next flip the lining, inside out. Now, you can easily see the cotter pins. Just spread them apart until they rest flat against the lining. Turn you lining back to the inside of the hat and you are all done: simple and easy.

Well now you can ride hard all day long and never get off your horse to chase you hat again. More importantly, you will not have to watch you hat fly under the feet of the horse behind you. Not only are stampede strings one of the most particle items you can add to your western outfit, but they are sexy and way too good looking, especially Knot-A-Tail’s Stampede strings.

Taking care of your Stampede string

Once you have installed that brand new Horse Hair stampeded string, or perhaps you prefer that Braided leather ones with horse hair tassels, you will want to learn how to take care of your new treasures. Knot-A-Tail offers a complete Free eBook on the Care of your Horse Hair Products.

Springer Spaniel Problems

What are the main problems Springer Spaniel owners experience (other than day-to-day illnesses)? If you are thinking about a springer as a pet, then this brief introduction will give you an insight into what to expect. Overall, springers are healthy dogs, whether the Welsh or English bloodlines, but there is a set of potential conditions which often crop up in discussions about their springers. These are problems which arise from inherited genetic factors, and those which come about from environmental factors.

The risks of the hereditary-based problems being present in the dog of your choice can be minimised by a series of tests and careful selection of the pup. The environmental problems affect all dogs to a greater or lesser extent, and these environmental effects can be avoided by proper training and nurturing, as long as there is no inbuilt tendency. For example, if the springer’s parents are themselves particularly nervous, then this could be seen in the young dog. You can’t screen for this genetically, but you can check the parents – and the aspect may be made worse or disappear depending on the way that the puppy is treated and trained, either reinforcing the trait or cancelling its effect completely.

1. Inherited

This group of conditions mainly covers eye and hip problems (such as hip dysplasia, and PRA – progressive retinal atrophy, and will be tested for by any reputable breeder wanting to register the pedigree of a springer spaniel of either line. In the UK, the recommends that springer breeders screen breeding stock for hip dysplasia and eye problems (by gonioscopy). There are other undesirable problems (such as canine fucosidosis – a metabolic disorder) which are checked for, but are now increasingly rare and have almost been bred out of all springer bloodlines.

Springers are also predisposed to other problems – such as down-turning eyelids (ectropion), but these sorts of problem are almost impossible to anticipate, unless presenting in a parent.

2. Environmental

Temperament

Excitablity. The main temperament issue that is mentioned is excitability. Springers are near the top end of canine intelligence and very active. A high activity level can be seen to be excitability, and if young children (or anyone else) teases or winds up a young dog, then they will certainly become excited.

Obviously, as with children, excitability becomes less apparent with increased age.

Nervousness. This can also be a problem, but this is often a result of ill-treatment. When compared with some other breeds of dog they are far from highly-strung. They are loyal and loving, but as with all loyalty it has to be earned and maintained. So, if a springer spaniel is mistreated when young, this will affect their character and their trust of human beings; it could show as excessive nervousness or a defensive nature (which itself could be seen as aggression when the dog is provoked or teased.

Aggression. Unless they have been properly trained, springers can become aggressive in the presence of other dogs of the same gender. This is not a huge problem, but again is one of those things that is mentioned in any detailed analysis of the breed(s). On balance, this trait is common in almost all breeds.

Both aggression and nervousness are more likely to be found in dogs which have been abandoned, often ending up in rescue centres. Springers in rescue centres can be, more likely to have these problems than would a well treated and properly trained springer which has been nurtured from a pup in a healthy family environment. If you follow sensible steps when selecting a rescue springer (best from a springer spaniel rescue centre), with a good idea of what to look out for, then there is no reason why you should not be able to find a perfectly sound example of these great breeds.

Outdoor Dogs.

Because they love mucking about and have hairy ears, they tend to get ear problems unless groomed carefully.

All in all, springer spaniels are low down on the scale of emotional problems, and the inherited physical factors can be screened for. Therefore they make a fantastic choice of pet for a young family or faithful companion for more mature dog lovers.

Cancer – Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment

Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of cells usually occurring when normal cells undergo genetic mutation in a sustained manner and for prolonged periods. There is a failure on the part of the cells to stop dividing and growing and from undergoing a programmed death. There are nearly 200 different types of known cancers. Cancer causes include heredity; tobacco smoke; radiation; ultraviolet radiation from the sun; food toxins; and environmental chemicals. Cancer results when these causes bring about an increase in oncogenes and reduction in tumour suppressor genes, DNA repair genes, and self-destruction genes.

There are five main types of cancer which include: 1) Carcinoma, which results from skin and linings of organs and body systems [adenocarcinoma; basal cell carcinoma; squamous cell carcinoma; and transitional cell carcinoma] 2) Sarcoma, which develops in connective tissue [bone, cartilage, fat, muscle and blood vessels] 3) Leukemia, which develops in the bone marrow 4) Lymphoma and myeloma, which develop in the immune system and 5) Tumours of the brain and spinal cord [glioma, astrocytoma].

Cancer staging is done as per the TNM format (Tumour [T1-4 which indicates increasing severity]; Node 0-3, which indicates progressive migration; and Metastasis [0 or 1]). It is also done as Stages 1 to 4, which again indicate progressively increasing severity. Staging brings about a universal uniformity regarding assessment and treatment of cancer and understanding its prognosis. Treatment of cancer includes different modalities such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, stem cell transplant, photodynamic therapy and laser.

In spite of multiple available, advanced treatment options, cancer treatment still has many limitations, and recurrence is a major issue. Surgery may not physically remove all the cancer cells; chemotherapy only affects cancer cells which are actively dividing; radiation therapy too does not succeed in destroying all cancer cell DNA; repeated mutations in cancer cells can make these resistant to even highly potent multiple drug therapy. After undergoing full remission with cancer treatment, recurrence is most common within the first two years; the chances of recurrence decrease significantly after five years of remission. Recurrence is very rare after ten years of remission; however – and this a rather unsettling thought – there are still a few cancers which may recur even after ten years of remission.

In this scenario, Ayurvedic treatment has a special role to play in comprehensive cancer management. Currently, it would be safer and more ethical to use Ayurvedic treatment as a complementary (add-on) treatment rather than an alternative (stand-alone) treatment. The current lacunae in cancer treatment can be completely filled up with Ayurvedic medicines. Ayurvedic treatment can significantly boost the immune system and help the body in its fight against the cancer cells. Herbal medicines and herbo-mineral combinations can reduce cancer cell mutations and destroy abnormal cells. Concurrently given Ayurvedic treatment can reduce the known side effects of modern treatments, improve treatment response, help prolong remission, and also help prevent recurrence.

Ayurvedic medicines act on specific organs and body systems; hence Ayurvedic treatment can provide highly targeted cancer therapy as well as protect organs from irreversible damage. This treatment can also be used to turn the tide in cases of drug resistance or failure of modern treatment, or where the side effects of modern medicines necessitate withdrawal of these medicines. Ayurvedic treatment is also very useful in advanced cancer with multiple metastases, or patients with end-stage cancer, to help control the disease, improve quality of life, and improve survival.

It is important to note that maximum benefit can be derived from Ayurvedic treatment if it is started at the earliest, with the first detection and diagnosis of cancer. Most individuals tend to look for Ayurvedic treatment after exhausting all modern treatment options, when the patient is already in the terminal stage, and there is no time for Ayurvedic medicines to work. It is also equally important to avoid self medication or to fall prey to quacks. The same medical regime will not work for all types of cancer; different patients with the same type and similar severity of cancer may respond differently to the same medicine. In fact, even an individual cancer patient on treatment cannot be given the same medicines indefinitely; regular supervision and periodical assessment is required to modify the treatment based upon the progression of the cancer, the response to treatment, and the presence or appearance of co-morbid factors and treatment adverse effects. Treatment decisions for cancer are obviously not simple.

Clinical experience since the last three decades has consistently proved that Ayurvedic treatment for cancer can be safely given concurrently with modern treatment modalities, provided both are done by qualified practitioners from their respective fields. Ayurvedic treatment can make a significant difference in the final outcome while treating cancer. Ayurvedic treatment thus has a definite role to play in cancer management.

Canine Diabetes: You Must Know These Seven Symptoms of Diabetes In Dogs

Let’s face it, canine diabetes is on the rise. However, many people are totally ignorant of the symptoms of diabetes in dogs. In this case, ignorance is not bliss, though. Diabetes in canines can result in blindness, infections, and if left untreated, in death.  

Anyone who has a canine in their life needs to know these seven symptoms that are common to dogs with diabetes.

1. Drinking More Water Than Usual

This should always be a red flag for pet owners. If your pet is suddenly very thirsty, and continues to be for several days, this could be due to high blood sugar levels. Her body will be demanding more water in an attempt to flush some of the glucose out of her system.

Sometimes the amount of water she’s drinking increases so gradually, you may not even be aware of it until another symptom, frequent urination, shows up.

2. Frequent Urination

This goes along with drinking a lot of water. Even if you don’t notice your pet’s increased water consumption, it’s hard to miss it if she’s asking to go outside more often, or if she’s having accidents in the house because she can’t “hold it.”  

3. She’s Lethargic And Tired

Your formerly energetic companion suddenly seems to have lost interest in life. All she wants to do is lay around. You may notice that she’s weak, and tired all the time. She just doesn’t seem to be herself.  

4. Weight Gain Or Loss

Any pet that suddenly gains or loses weight for no reason needs to see the vet, especially if she’s ravenously hungry, but isn’t putting on any weight, or is even losing it. This can be a symptom of any number of health problems, but canine diabetes is often the reason.

5. Her Breath Is Sweet

Instead of the usual “dog breath,” your pup’s breath has a sweet smell to it. This is a definite sign of high blood sugar levels. Take your pet to the vet right away.

6. Shaking Or Shivering

This is a symptom of hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. This is very serious condition that needs immediate treatment.

7. Persistent Infections

If your pup is suffering from repeated urinary tract infections, gum infections, or fungal infections, it could because due to diabetes. One of the symptoms of diabetes in dogs is a decreased resistance to infections.  

Your Pet May Not Show Any Symptoms At All

Sometimes dogs with diabetes don’t show any of these symptoms because the disease changes their bodily functions so slowly. For this reason, this disease is often known as a silent killer.

Can you prevent diabetes in canines? The answer is yes. Here are some suggestions:

*Keep your dog’s weight under control.  
*Feed her a high quality canned food that’s low in fat and carbohydrates and high in fiber.  
*Have her spayed, as high estrogen levels can sometimes interfere with insulin production.  
*Regular exercise will keep her in shape, and it’s also helpful in keeping her blood sugar levels normal.

Some pet owners are curious about natural remedies for dogs. Research has shown that certain herbs and dietary supplements are very helpful in keeping the amount of glucose in the blood at normal levels. However, once canine diabetes has developed, your pet will need to be on insulin for the rest of her life. With this disease, prevention is definitely the best cure.

Don’t be paralyzed by ignorance. Protect your pet by knowing the symptoms of diabetes in dogs.
