Bnai Zion Medical Center


Eventually with the financial support of Bnai Zion, the hospital was renamed the Bnai Zion Medical Center in 1988. The hospital has a long history of service to the people of Israel. In its early days, it was known primarily as a facility for the treatment of children with developmental disorders. In 1948, during the War of Independence, it was the only medical facility in Haifa available to treat the wounded. It met a desperate, emergency situation head-on; injured soldiers and civilians were accommodated in tents and makeshift huts on hospital grounds and at the Technion.

In 1982, Bnai Zion Foundation presented an initial contribution to the hospital, which enabled the opening of its new Emergency Room and made a commitment to raise the funds needed to complete the West Wing Project. In 1988, recognizing its $5 million contribution, and in honor of Bnai Zion’s 80th anniversary, the hospital was renamed the Bnai Zion Medical Center.

The hospital is affiliated with the B. Rappaport Faculty of Medicine at the Technion (Israel’s Institute of Technology) and serves as a teaching hospital for its students.  Many of the hospital’s department heads and senior physicians are on the faculty of the Technion and are associated with its varied and wide-ranging medical research activities.


The Bnai Zion Medical Center, located on Mt. Carmel in Haifa was voted leading Medical facility, offering high-quality health care in Northern Israel. It expanded to a 450-bed general hospital facility, dedicated to meeting the needs of a growing population that reaches from Haifa to the neighboring villages throughout the North.

The hospital was in the forefront of treatment for frontline victims of the recent war with Hezbollah and other terrorist bombings.


A recent survey conducted by the Macabi Health Insurance Company rated the Bnai Zion Medical Center well above the national average. Patients have praised the medical staff, their professionalism, the admission procedures and efforts to relieve pain, and consider the Bnai Zion Medical Center as an outstanding hospital.

The hospital has been presented with the most prestigious Israeli award given to a hospital in Israel: The Bnai Zion Medical Center has been voted the number one hospital of choice in North Israel for eight consecutive years.  Its doctors are known worldwide for the development of groundbreaking treatments and techniques. 

What A Homeland Security Degree Is

Since the events of September 11, 2001, the United States has created and staffed a whole new piece of government, and called it Homeland Security. This agency has taken over the primary responsibility for keeping the US safe from terrorism, both foreign and domestic. This has led to interest in and a need for ways to get a Homeland Security degree.

A degree in Homeland Security is not actually a hard thing to find– a fair number of universities offer them now, including online colleges. They are available at associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree levels so most students can find one that fits their needs. Getting a degree in Homeland Security prepares people for jobs in the still-increasing market of the field.

Subjects covered in a Homeland Security degree range widely from political science to engineering and psychology. The idea is that someone with this degree will have a widely-based enough education to understand at least the fundamentals of possible threats from a variety of angles. A good grounding in the basics of these disciplines also allows students to understand the higher level coursework in security and emergency preparedness and response that follow the foundation classes.

Most national security programs are careful not to focus on any particular ideology or political views. The education given in these programs is in keeping people safe from potential threats, not in being politicians, and reputable degree-granting institutes recognize and implement programs to protect this.

People with degrees in Homeland Security find jobs at all levels of government, from working for the city as emergency responders (police, fire and paramedics) to those who work for the highest levels of the federal government. The Department of Homeland Security has a very large budget and employs 170,000 people who serve in a variety of jobs. All of them protect national security in some way.

Because security is such a broad job field, there are many internships to prepare new graduates for the job that they will enter. The education in this field is a basic grounding in the principles of the field, and then the students learn how to perform their actual jobs during an internship or while employed in an entry-level position.

Because the budget of national security is so big, and because they have assumed responsibilities that previously belonged to other federal agencies, the job market for those with security experience and educations is still growing. A degree in Homeland Security gives a person a good chance of finding a job within the field, at least at the moment, and is attractive to some people because of this in our currently low economy.

Choosing any major because of the job potential is fairly common, but generally a bad idea. These people often find that their jobs aren’t fulfilling, but take so much time that they can’t enjoy themselves at the things they truly want to do. Homeland Security jobs are often those that require the full commitment of the individuals employed in them, so it could be an especially bad idea within this field. For people who feel that these kinds of service-based jobs are their calling, though, they can be extremely fulfilling.

Stay in Your Lane – Un-Defining Gender Roles

My mom turned 70 earlier this month (Happy Birthday, Mom!!). A couple of days before the big day, I was on the phone with my brother talking about the gift we’d decided to get her. During the conversation, it dawned on me that we hadn’t planned to get her a birthday cake… So, I asked him “Hey, do you think we should get Mom a cake?” His response was quick and unceremonious: “I don’t know! We’re men and we’re not supposed to know those things. Ask your wife!”

We wrapped up the call, gift plans all settled, and ended with “I love you!” (Perfectly in bounds). I sat there for a minute, brow all a furrowed. Can’t be true. There can not be things that men cannot know about or think about because they’re men (and vice versa), can there? What other things are off-limits?

I rolled this internal debate around and wrestled with it for a couple of hours before I finally landed on clarity. Knowledge is the foundation for wisdom. Knowledge together with wisdom gives us all the ability to perform at our best in the world. The more we know, the better we can take care of the people and things around us.

Armed with this new determination, I took the question to the women (actually, I took it to a woman). I asked a friend, who shall remain nameless, “Are there things that you would rather the man (or men) in you life not know?” Her response was surprising. “If my man knows all of the lady things, what would he need me for? And that goes both ways. For instance, if I know how to change a tire and other things like that, what do I need a man for?”

Really?! I’m gonna say No! I’m going to completely reject the notion that being a man or a woman restricts what a person should know. I’m going to cast down the idea that the more typically other gender specific information that a person has limits their utility to their opposite sexed mate.

Life is about being your best you. It’s about being capable and able to respond. Gender and gender roles have nothing to do with it. The more my wife (and all of the women around me) knows about everything that this life has to offer, the safer and more secure I feel. The more my wife knows, the more I know she’ll be able to take care of me and our life whenever the need should arrive. I want to know as much about everything that I can. I want to be able to be the best that I can be for my wife and everyone and everything around me. Here’s my confession: I know how to buy underwear for my wife. When my wife is having her “Lady Moment”, I know how to go to the store and purchase “Candy” (cause that’s what I called the special sanitary products used during the special “Lady Moment”). I know these things because I want her to know that I’ve got her back whenever she should need me.

What Are Warts, Moles and Skin Tags?

Warts are skin growths which are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) – they are non-cancerous. The virus causes keratin, a hard protein in the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) to grow too fast. The virus that causes them only affects human skin.Warts are different from moles. While moles are dark and can be quite large, warts tend to be small, skin-colored rough lumps. Warts most commonly appear on a person’s hands and feet and can often be seen on the knuckles or around the tips of the fingers.

Although warts are most commonly seen on children, in particular of the ages between four and six, they can be seen on adults also. Warts look like small growths or crustaceans on the skin.

Warts can be extremely contagious and can spread just by touching the infected area, often people tend to bite or scratch them in hope of removing them or because they are irritating. Once they begin to bleed warts are even more contagious and are then more likely to either spread on the human who already has the virus or can be passed on to other people. The risk of infecting others can be decreased by using certain types of wart removing nail polish and covering them up particularly in areas where they can be easily passed on e.g. swimming pools or gym mats.

Another pressing area, particularly within the dermatological branch of medicine is moles and skin tags. Moles even if small can be found on almost all human beings, and are also referred to as melanocytic naevi they are small brown coloured marks on the skin which are sometimes raised. They often increase in numbers during the teenage years through to the age of 30 and are prone to changing in appearance as well as increasing in numbers.

Moles that keep changing appearance should be monitored as some Moles can be cancerous moles. If the mole is in a hard to examine part of the body; e.g. back, back of the neck etc. you will need to enlist the assistance of your partner or a good friend – using the same person each time will help you to get more accurate feedback on the findings.

With this type of changing mole there is always the risk of a melanoma, the signs you should be looking for:

  • Moles which are exaggeratedly black, white or red should also be checked by a dermatologist, because the normal color is dark brown for skin moles;
  • Primarily asymmetric – that means the two halves do not overlap perfectly;
  • Irregular around the edges – poorly defined or with irregular edges are, most often associated to malignant moles;
  • Moles with a large diameter that have increased their size are usually a high risk of melanoma.
  • Moles with more colors on the surface or irregularly divided, whose color changes over time shows the risk of malignant moles;

Things that affect the amount of moles that someone might have could be due to a number of factors, they are often genetic and are inherited from parents. They can also be affected by where a human being grows up as the sun often cause a human to break out in a number of small moles. Often brown marks that are caused by sun shine aren’t moles, they often appear after being sun burnt and are referred to as sun spots.

Remember, a change of size, color or occasional bleeding may be the early signs of a possible cancerous mole or skin tag – these should not be ignored.

A skin tag on the other-hand is usually benign and harmless. They are, as their name implies, small tags of skin usually dangling on a stalk. They can appear on any part of the body surface (skin), but are typically found where skin rubs against skin such as the: armpits, eyelids, neck, groin and upper chest / under the breasts.

Whilst skin tags may in the main be harmless they are still unsightly appendages which can cause great anxiety to the sufferer.

Moles Warts and Skin Tags can all be removed.

Earn a Certificate in IGI Appraisals

If you would like to become more educated about appraising diamonds for your own collection or because you sell diamonds and diamond jewelry, you can study for a certificate in IGI appraisals. Since this certification and the skills you learn in the courses are recognized throughout the world, you could also jumpstart your career in this area.

The grand majority of diamond appraisal institutes, such as EGL loose diamonds and GIA diamond rings, have a team of gemologists on staff that conduct the appraisals of the diamonds submitted to them. Even though there is a cost associated with taking appraisal courses, if you deal with large quantities of diamonds you can save yourself money by being able to do your own appraisals.

The courses offered in IGI appraisals are in the areas of:

– Polished stones

– Rough diamonds

– Colored stones, and

– Jewelry grading

The course leading to the certificate known as IGI Polished Stone Grader from IGI Appraisals is a comprehensive one that takes place over the course of 5 to 8 days depending on where you take the course. In the introductory lessons of the course, you will learn about the 4 C’s of diamonds and learn all the terminology associated with this field. In the first week you will learn how to grade diamonds for clarity by using both a high-powered microscope and the loupe.

The next part of the course will teach you how to determine the color of the diamond, after which you proceed into learning how to determine the cut of the stone. This includes an elementary knowledge of the different fancy cuts for best value diamonds. Diamond fashioning involves learning the steps that take place in taking a rough diamond and fashioning it into one that is ready to be set into a piece of jewelry.

Along with lots of practice in applying what you have learned throughout the course, you will have to take and pass a written and practical test in order to receive your diploma. The course in IGI appraisals of rough diamonds is a week long course. In this course, you will gain valuable information about non conflict diamonds and how to determine whether or not the diamonds come from conflict areas of the world.

Study of the different diamond mines and their practices is an important part of this section of the course. The main part of the course deals with teaching you how to sort diamonds by clarity and color and the markings of rough diamonds. Then you will learn how to evaluate them and practice using the computerized estimation technology used by IGI. At the end of the 7 days, you then must take and pass the test in order to receive your “diamond diploma.”

Although IGI appraisals mainly specialize in diamonds, other colored stones are submitted to the institute for analysis. You can also earn certification in grading and appraising other types of colored stones, such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls. This course is 10 days in duration and will teach you how to identify a stone and tell whether it is natural of synthetic and treated or untreated.

As part of the course, you will receive instruction in how to use specialized instruments, such as a refractometer, polariscope and dichroscope. At the end of the course when you pass the written and practical exam, you will receive a diploma certifying you as an IGI Colored Stone Appraisal Specialist.

You can easily find out about the cost of the courses and the locations where they are taught at various times of the year by looking on the website of the International Gemological Institute. The courses do take place at the various facilities throughout the world, which makes it possible for you to take one in your home country or travel to an exotic part of the world.

Is High Blood Pressure Hereditary?

What is high blood pressure?

This is a condition which occurs when you have a blood pressure that is consistently above 140/90. This can cause more serious medical issues which could be fatal if not treated or controlled well.

There are so many risks attributed to this condition. These risks may be controllable or uncontrollable. It is important therefore to understand the factors that will help you to control pressure. The following factors contribute to developing the condition.


This brings us back to the question is high blood pressure hereditary? A family history may be responsible for a person developing it. it is therefore hereditary and genetics play a large role in its contribution to run in the family.


Ethnicity is another contributing factor. It is more common among African-Americans. This condition can also develop earlier in life among this African-American group as compared to their white counterparts.


As you grow older, your chances of developing high blood pressure increase. Statistics show that more women are prone to developing it after menopause.

Weight Gain

This is one of the major contributors. This is because there is an increased pressure on the arterial walls when you gain weight. It is therefore important to lose weight in order to maintain healthy pressure levels.

Eating Habits

Diet is a common risk factor. Food that contains too much salt causes water retention in the body and this increases the blood pressure. It is therefore important to track how much salt is in the diet by keeping a food diary as this will help you know how much sodium you are taking in food and drinks.

Reading food labels and low intake of processed foods are a major contribution to lowering the pressure. Lack of potassium and increased an increased alcohol consumption can make the it to rise.


According to Mayo Clinic, a stressful situation can cause blood pressure to rise temporarily. Activities such as exercising for 30 – 60 minutes daily will reduce the stress levels. It is therefore important to stay active as this helps in managing stress and improving your health. In a long term situation, being regularly active will help.

If you have a diagnosis of this condition, your worries among other things would be to take medication to lower it. A healthy lifestyle can successfully control it, which may negate the need for medication.

Losing weight around the waistline, regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, reducing sodium in your diet and limiting alcohol intake can help to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Gall Bladder Symptoms

Ultimately it’s your health & wellness.

Something that is quite common in western medicines the emergency gall bladder removal. Plugged with stones, it begins to cause health & wellness problems, and instead of just removing the stones, the whole gall bladder is removed. Without the gall bladder the bile salts are not stored, and are just constantly released into the bowel. This irritates the small intestine when there isn’t any food in it. Without the gall bladder, a human can’t efficiently break fats down into the smallest molecules needed for appropriate utilization. Many times these fats are Essential Fatty Acids. A lack of Essential Fatty Acids is a escalating health & wellness concern in the US and much of this can indubitably be attributed to a exhausted gall bladder. inadequately broken down fatty acids can also lead to diseases of the lymphatic system, since the lymphatic system is a carrier of fats.


Bile is also one of the most dejected methods the body uses for toxin disposal. Honest health & wellness advisers know the amount of bile your body produces is directly related to the amount of toxins you can excrete, the key word here is can. One of the basic functions of bile is to break toxins down into smaller molecules, just as it does fats. The bile attaches itself to the toxins and carries it through the colon. Bile will also help clean the bowels of viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Bile also strengthens our normal bowel flora by keeping these invaders at bay. 

When the body’s toxins are not excreted quickly, they cause inflammation, immune response, fat storage in the blood vessels and bile ducts of the liver. As bile production slows and the wrong cholesterol levels elevate, it leads to plaque filled arteries and veins. In turn, this leads to many sorts of disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, sleep apnea, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, psoriasis, and edema. 

many toxic skin conditions may be traced to reduced bile production. How? The skin is the largest cathartic organ in the body, and when the lack of bile creates a condition in the bowel of the inability to breakdown and eliminate toxins, the skin is one of the cathartic organs that must overcome this condition. That pimple may be just a case of reduced bile salts. For many, it is as simple as supplementing bile salts to remedy a bad skin complexion.

When there is a bacterial or viral infection within the body, and as the body engages and purges these invaders, the dead remains of the infection are handled by the liver and dumped in the bowels. These toxins, known as endotoxins, are some of the most deadly toxic substances there is. Until the liver eliminates the blood of the endotoxins, these remains cause inflammation and cellular degeneration. Severe inflammation overwhelms the body, and soft tissues and organs are blasted. Blood thickens to the point it coagulates right in the veins. A Hungarian research scientist found bile salts split the endotoxins into harmless fragments, and halted the cellular destruction.


Once a gall bladder has been removed the body cannot regulate appropriate bile flow until it grows back. When it does, it functions at a lower level than the gall bladder of birth. At any rate, the ability to store bile salts are reduced, and the bile is completely gone after the next meal, and none is left to eliminate toxins or fight pathogens. 

The phyto-estrogens so common today from our plastic society are causing a hormone nightmare with women. Instead of using synthetic hormones to attempt to adjust the hot flashes, migraines, weight control, water retention, etc. Doesn’t it just make more sense to just increase bile salts to destroy these plastic hormone mimics?


So what can I take to increase bile? Proactazyme Plus and Food Enzymes are a direct replacement. Lecithin keeps bile thin, and reduces the need for bile by duplicating several things bile does. Milk Thistle and Dandelion combinations increase bile production naturally. NSP’s Gall Bladder Formula, Liver clean Formula, Red Beet Root Formula, and Liver Balance many increase bile production.


A Portuguese research group found a way to mix oil, water, and simple sugars to form a “cooking fat” that acts the same way as transfats or saturated fats, the stuff that makes baked goods taste good. The big difference here is this process works with oils like olive, grape seed, and sunflower. How to get food manufacturers interested in the process.


Erectile dysfunction is an indicator of cardiac disease or stroke because both conditions occur when certain arteries fail to expand fully in response to being stimulated. Because the arteries in the penis are smaller than those in the heart, for instance, the erectile dysfunction might show up sooner.


Men embarrassed to talk to their health & wellness advisers need to get over it, quickly. The risk of developing cardiac disease occurs with erectile dysfunction, perhaps much sooner. 

Research has looked at whether drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction might protect against cardiac problems in patients with vascular disorders. No such luck. Although some improvement was shown, most men still developed cardiac disease. If you are suffering from ED, see your health & wellness adviser about it.


The body works only for immediate survival, not toward long-term health & wellness. Mankind has a survival instinct that has served him well. In order to withstand threatened attacks, real or imagined, the body goes defense physiology. You may not be consciously aware that your body is responding to events of the past, but these buried memories of a defensive state may keep your body in a defense physiology without you knowing it. In time, you will begin to experience pain and develop symptoms of disease, many be­cause your memory patterns are keeping your body in a tensed survival mode rather than allowing it to respond to the stimuli of the moment. Your body is in a defensive state and accumulating more acid than it can handle. Thoughts exert the most power­ful influence on your health & wellness, and negative thoughts are the number one acid pro­ducer in your body. Stress in the form of negative thoughts has health & wellness damaging consequences. 

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is.

Healthy Eating Diet Plan

Here's a healthy eating diet plan that will work for just about anyone. It's not expensive and you will not starve. Each of the calories has a purpose, unlike a lot of diets that have too many useless empty calories that do not fill you up, yet add tons of calories to your daily caloric intake. Spare me 2 minutes to read this article. If you do, you should get at least 1 golden nugget tip out of it that'll help you to lose more weight, faster.

Healthy Eating Diet Plan

1. Eat some scrambled eggs or rolled oats oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder for breakfast

Ok, 2 simple options there. Forget the typical cereals, forget skipping breakfast, and forget just having coffee for breakfast. None of that works for weight loss. You need something that has protein it it and something that fills you up. Both of my options above fit that criteria. Make it happen!

2. For lunch have a protein shake and a soup or salad

You can pre-make the protein shake in the morning if making one at lunchtime is not convenient for you. Just make it and then put in a shaker bottle. When you're ready to eat lunch, shake it up and drink. This combo will fill you up really good without many calories. Just make sure the soup and salads have just vegetables in them … although you can add a protein to them if you want.

3. Dinner … eat only lean meats and vegetables

You get protein and you get your vegetables. What more can you ask for. Each night you can switch up both the meat you use and the vegetables. The only thing I want to warn against is using potatoes since they're a very starchy carb that is bad for you.

How did I do with this healthy eating diet plan?

Lose Weight Without Dieting – 4 Quick & Easy Weight Loss Tips

Type in the words "weight loss" in any search engine and you will be flooded with thousands upon thousands of search results – all involving various types of diet plans to supposedly remove the excess fat and flab around your arms, belly, hips, and thighs . In reality, however, there are several effective ways to lose weight without dieting which often prove to be much more effective than other types of treatment to help you lose weight.

1. Exercise

Whatever type of diet you chose, and if you are looking to lose weight without dieting, one of the essential components of your weight loss program should be exercise. In essence, losing weight is a matter of removing the excess fat in your body. As anyone with a background in science and medicine will tell you, losing the excess fat can only be done through a reduction in calories. The most effective way to reduce calories, however, is not actually through diets, where one of the most common problems is the weight loss plateau where the body becomes accustomed to low calorie diets and stops losing weight – but through exercise. Exercise burns up calories like no diet can, and also helps the health in various other ways.

2. Develop lean muscles

In terms of exercise, the best way to burn your calories for effective weight loss and to lose weight without dieting is through the use of aerobic and cardio vascular exercise that promote the development of the lean muscles. The lean muscles are a type of muscles that are most effective in burning down the calories in the body, especially because these types of muscles undergo metabolism fastest. The usual exercises that you can use to develop your lean muscles are those that subject the entire body to movement, such as jogging, swimming, or intensive physical sports.

3. Good confusion

Finally, another effective way for anybody to lose weight without dieting is through the use of the "good confusion." In other words, the metabolism in the body is fooled by the types of food that you eat, in order to change the metabolism patterns and make the body lose weight quickly. There are various ways to do this, and one of the most effective diet programs that make use of this is the diet program known as Fat Loss 4 Idiots. Without restricting your daily food intake, and while allowing you to eat anything on the menu for as much as you want, this diet program ensures weight loss by focusing on a particular type of calorie intake each day, in effect confusing the body as to the rate that it should metabolize the calories.

4. The results

Within eleven days of sticking to the Fat Loss 4 Idiots program, users can achieve as much as seven pounds of weight loss. In the long run, once the body's metabolism has been more effectively confused, the benefits are even greater. In the end, one thing that you should know about programs for losing weight is that there are many – and that few are effective. For a program that works, and which works without starving you half to death, try the metabolic confusion approach to lose weight without dieting that Fat Loss 4 Idiots brings you.

Vitamin D Pain Treatment

By an added consumption of Vitamin D, pain can be relieved to a great extent, researches pronounce. At least 8 out of every 10 people experience pain in one form or the other in their span of life. The symptoms and causes of pain however, differ from person to person. A deficiency of Vitamin D is a cause for many forms of pain, the most common among which is muscle pain. You may feel that this deficit of vitamin D is rare. In that case, you will be surprised to know that in a recent study concentrating on the six regions of the world, namely Africa, Europe, Asia, North America, Middle East and Oceania, the results have revealed that vitamin D concentrations lower than 75 nmol / L were rather common.

Vitamin D Pain Relif Overview

Vitamin D is also known as the 'sunshine vitamin'. This is because the skin makes vitamin D when exposed to sunrays. It is then broken down by the kidney into active chemicals that function as hormones. Vitamin D is very important to help the body absorb calcium from food and retain it. Calcium is integral to bone health. Lack of Vitamin D can cause many problems, including pain and discomfort. Researches show that people with long-term pain are usually deficit in vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency may be due to:

  • Lack of exposure to sun
  • Body not absorbing vitamins correctly
  • Lack of Vitamin D in the diet

With an intake of extra quantity of vitamin D, pain can be made to reduce. It relieves muscle pain, joint pain and pain in bones and back pain.

Kinds Of Pain Treated:

Consuming Vitamin D is useful for treating chronic pains like:

  • Fibromyalgia: The muscular pain and weakness experienced by patients of fibromyalgia is often related to lack of vitamin D in the body. This however does not mean that the disease is rooted in this deficiency. It is functional in aggravating the symptoms.
  • Osteoarthritis: It is the most common form of arthritis. Lack of vitamin D in body hampers the process of absorption of calcium. This in turn results in osteoarthritis. Low intake of vitamin D can increase this risk.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: It is a chronic inflammatory disorder. It mainly affects tissues, organs and synovial joints. Consumption of vitamin D is very important to patients suffering from this disease.
  • Myalgia: It means 'muscle pain'. Myalgia is the symptom of many disorders and diseases. Studies have revealed that almost 28% of patients have severe inadequacy of vitamin D.
  • Diabetic neuropathy: It involves serious pain. An Australian research has revealed that vitamin D deficiency is common in patients suffering from type II diabetes. Vitamin D supplementation is an effective way to treat this problem.

Since all these diseases engage painful conditions and in some way or the other, are triggered off by inadequate supply of vitamin D in the body, increased intake of vitamin D can help treat it.

Treatment Process

Treating pain with Vitamin D is cost-effective. You can consult your physician for advice.

A Crash Diet Vs A Healthy Diet – Which Is Better?

In the world we live in today, patience does seem to becoming a rare commodity. In a generation where easy credit and futuristic gadgets have become the norm, there has been big changes in the way we eat. Changes to family life (more families with two parents working) and longer working habits have hit our staple diet hard. An age of endless fast food joints, junk food diets and processed convenience foods have emerged as a result. People want, expect and demand things instantly in today’s world, and weight loss is no different.

Our modern culture that gave birth to reality television, is more obsessed than ever.with celebrities and the way we look. So called Hollywood diets, fad diets and crash diets have never been so popular, but how do they compare to a healthy diet and lifestyle?

Crash diet plans and weight loss programs are often accompanied by a sensational headline which promise a lot of weight loss in a short amount of time (lose 3 stone in 60 days etc.). The good news is that in a lot of cases you will experience rapid weight loss if you stick to a strict crash diet in the early days. However the bad news is that this will mainly be down to lost fluids from the body, the moment you resume eating properly (rather than starving yourself), then the weight will return.

The majority of crash diets involve making drastic changes to your diet, making them very hard to stick too. They generally do not supply you with enough calories or nutrients to feel full and satisfied throughout the day. You can often feel very tired, lack energy and feel very unhappy while following a crash diet. Any diet that you follow must be realistic and provide with enough food and sustenance to function properly.

People tend to view a crash diet as a short term solution to their weight problems. If they manage to stick to the diet long enough to achieve their weight loss goals, they tend to revert back to their old habits (the ones that made them overweight to start with). Changing your eating habits should be about educating yourself to eat more healthy on a regular basis. Introduce a couple of small changes and continue with them until they become a habit, then introduce a couple more and take it from there. Trying to change too much in one go is a sure-fire recipe for failure.

Crash diets are more dangerous, the longer that you remain on them. Starving yourself can leave you prone to binge and emotional eating. You will not have enough energy to concentrate or function properly and your sleep will be effected. Your general mental and physical well-being can be severely compromised, (you could end up feeling miserable all the time).

Working towards a more healthy lifestyle is the right option, and can have a really positive impact on your health and self esteem. You may not experience those amazing initial results, but the weight loss you experience is likely to be permanent. With permanent weight loss, slow and steady always wins the race.

Think Fat Loss, Not Weight Loss

Weight loss is one of the hottest topics ever. Everyone seems to be trying to lose weight nowadays. Most diet programs are about weight loss and body weight is often used as an indicator of fitness progress. But, this is an incorrect approach.

Your ultimate goal should always be to lose fat and reducing excess body fat is what you should be concerned about. Weight loss and Fat loss is NOT the same thing! Many people confuse the two terms, often believing that they mean the same, when in fact weight loss and fat loss are very different from one another. This article will help you understand how weight loss is different than fat loss and how fat loss is far superior to weight loss in almost all ways.

What Is Weight Loss?

(Weight Loss = Muscle Loss + Fat Loss + Water Loss)

Weight loss is attempting to lower your total body weight. It simply refers to a lower number on a scale.

Your body weight is composed of all the parts of your body such as muscles, fat, bones, water, organs, tissues, blood, water etc. When you lose weight, you lose a little bit of… fat, muscle and water.

You lose fat but very little and along with the fat you lose muscle and some amount of water. The higher you reduce your calorie intake, the faster you drop weight and the more muscle mass you lose.

Do know your muscle matters? Loss of muscle affects your health and your overall appearance.

When you lose weight too quickly, your body cannot maintain its muscle. Because muscle requires more calories to sustain itself, your body begins to metabolize it so that it can reserve the incoming calories for its survival. It protects it fat stores as a defense mechanism to ensure your survival in case of future famine and instead use lean tissue or muscle to provide it with calories it needs to keep its vital organs such as your brain, heart, kidneys and liver functioning. If you reach a point where you have very little fat or muscle, your body will metabolize your organs to keep your brain functioning leading to heart attack, stroke and liver and kidney failure.

As the body loses more muscle mass, the body’s overall metabolic rate decreases. The metabolic rate is the rate at which the body burns calories and is partly determined by the amount of muscle you have.

So the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate; the less muscle you have, the lower your metabolic rate and fewer calories you burn. This explains why it is crucial to protect your metabolic rate and not have muscle loss.

Loss of muscle also leads to loss of tone underneath the skin leaving you soft and unshapely with no form or contour. If you lose weight too rapidly, your skin won’t have time to adjust either. Also muscle is what gives you strength and loss of it means a weak body.

With weight loss you shrink in size and become a smaller version of yourself with a fragile frame with saggy skin.

Weight loss works in the short run to make you smaller but is temporary, almost everyone rebounds and regains the weight. This forces you to find another diet. And then another one, and another one – because eventually they’ll all fail.

What Is Fat Loss?

(Fat Loss = Loss Of Stored Body Fat)

Fat loss is attempting to lower your total body fat – i.e. the percentage of your total body weight that is made up of fat.

The right approach for fat loss is to exercise smartly and eat intelligently in a way that maintains muscle and focuses on fat loss exclusively.

The muscle you have is not there forever. If you don’t feed it and don’t use it – you lose it. A proper plan with right combination of resistance and cardiovascular training with adequate progression and a right nutrition plan to support it can help you achieve this. Exercise only boosts the burning process but doesn’t just melt the fat away on its own – if you do not create a deficit and feed the body too much – it won’t touch the stored fuel reserves. On the hand if you drastically cut your calories and do not feed your muscle properly or don’t exercise and use your muscle, you will lose it. Fat loss is about finding that right balance.

With fat loss you maintain the muscle and keep the metabolic rate running high. You also develop stronger connective tissue, tighter skin and stronger bones and joints. With fat loss you transform your body.

Fat loss is a lifestyle approach where you give your body what it needs without depriving and shocking it with threat of starvation. You get to see slow but permanent steady progress.

It may sound odd, but it’s possible to get thinner without actually seeing a change in your weight. This happens when you lose body fat while gaining muscle. Your weight stays the same, even as you lose inches.

Lets see how this happens.

Fat tissue is very loose and not dense. It occupies a lot of space in your body. Whereas muscle is more dense and takes up less space. When you lose fat, this space is freed and you can notice inch loss. If you are following a consistent strength training program then gain in lean muscle tissue will balance out this loss of fat and weight stays the same. Since muscle takes less space than fat, you lose inches and start to look more toned, lean and shapely.

consistent strength training program then gain in lean muscle tissue will balance out this loss of fat and weight stays the same. Since muscle takes less space than fat, you lose inches and start to look more toned, lean and shapely.

Myth: “Getting fit” means “Losing weight.”

Truth: Getting fit means lowering your body fat percentage!
