Constipation and Hemorrhoids – How to Avoid Becoming Constipated and Stay Hemorrhoid Free

Hemorrhoids, which are painful swollen veins, can be found inside the anus or under the skin around it, and a common cause of this symptom is constipation. Blood vessels tend to swell, causing the hemorrhoid, when they are weak or have excessive pressure, particularly when one is constipated. The vessel can then burst and bleed, along with other symptoms experienced with hemorrhoids, such as itching and rectal pain.

When one is constipated, that person is likely to strain when trying to pass a bowel movement, and this can cause a small amount of lining from the intestines to be pushed out from the anus. This rectal prolapse can lead to the secretion of mucus from the anus. To treat this condition, all that is needed to do is stop the training, unless the collapse is severe. In that case, surgery might be needed.

In addition to training during a bowel movement, hemorrhoids can be caused by constipation in women due to water retention during the premenstrual syndrome or menstruation.

Possible ways to stay hemorrhoid-free are to keep stools soft and easily-passable, as to also avoid constipation so there is less pressure and training. Another important action is to empty bowels soon after the desire occurs.

Constipation can be avoided by exercise and fiber intake, and cutting back on alcohol and caffeine. Treatment or remedies for hemorrhoids include warm baths, ice packs and special creams. Anal fissures, or an unnatural crack or tear in the skin of the anus, can be taken care of by stretching the sphincter muscle or removal of the tissue or skin in that area.

Six Steps to a Career in Computer Science

Computer science is not for everyone. If you like math and solving puzzles, then you will probably enjoy computer programming. Give it a try and see if it's right for you. However, if you find puzzles to be tedious and frustrating then you should probably consider another line of work. Debugging computer programs can take hours of focused work with little reward until the end. Some people find this sort of work stressful.

If you think you have what it takes, here are six steps to launch your career in computer science and maintain a high salary:

Study math in high school. Computer programs strongly heavily on algebra, with variables, functions, etc. Try to take the highest math classes your high school offers. Computer programmers sometimes employ trigonometry, calculus, and linear algebra depending upon the application. Take any computer classes offered as well.

Take computer science in college. While some individuals can get a programming job with a high school diploma or associate's degree, most employers require a four-year bachelor's degree. Each university is different but the major is usually called "computer science", "software engineering" or "computer engineering". If they offer more than one that's even better! Find out which department has the best reputation for producing skilled computer programmers.

Learn a programming language used in the industry. Some universities only teach "toy" languages ​​because they are well suited for teaching computer science theory. If this is the only thing on your resume, employers will not be impressed. Decide what type of work you'd like to pursue (web development, desktop applications, etc.) and find out which are the most commonly used languages ​​in that industry.

Complete a warm up project. There's an old catch-22 about needing experience to get a job, and needing a job to get experience. A good way to gain programming experience is to volunteer on an open source project. Just choose a project that interests you. You can either start a new project on your own or contribute to an existing project on SourceForge. Prospective employers will be impressed by your initiative and you can even show them excerpts of your code as a sample.

Navigate your career path. Recent college graduates generally start in an entry-level position. With a good attitude and work ethic, you can move up the ladder to senior engineer in about five years. This may mean moving between companies. It's common for employees to change jobs every year or two in high tech industries. Sometimes that's the fastest way to get ahead and find a job you really enjoy.

Stay up to date. The technology of computers is always evolving rapidly. Make sure to continue learn new developments in the industry. This will ensure a long and prosperous career. However, beware of short-term fads and do not waste your time and effort to learn about them.

BDSM Protocol – How to Successfully Present Yourself to a Pro-Domme (Dominatrix) In Six Simple Steps

A Pro-Domme, also called a Dominatrix or Mistress, is a professional who engages in BDSM activity with clients. These clients take on the submissive role (or “bottom”) during a session. Typical activities engaged in may include: dominance and submission (D/s), sadomasochism (S&M), fetish play, bondage, and discipline. While BDSM activities are highly charged both emotionally and sexually, sex is not included in the services of a Pro-Domme.

Many clients present themselves to a prospective Mistress in an unfavorable way, which results in them not being given that precious opportunity to serve. Sometimes clients can find a Pro-Domme who will session with them, only to discover that the so called “Dominatrix” is inexperienced or lacking in skills. As the saying goes, “a good Domme is hard to find.” This difficulty in finding a Mistress often occurs due to the submissive’s naivete or because he possesses a “Dive Bar Attitude.” However, by following six simple steps when approaching a Pro-Domme, it is highly unlikely that a prospective client will not be given an opportunity to serve a professional.

What is a “Dive Bar Attitude?”

Many prospective clients present themselves to a Pro-Domme inappropriately because they possess what I’ve termed a “Dive Bar Attitude.” When a person goes to a dive bar, they do so with certain expectations. They expect to be served. They expect to have their thirst quenched. They expect to get drunk without paying a lot of money. They expect that, other than their payment, they will not be required to provide anything to the proprietor. This is the WRONG ATTITUDE when approaching a Pro-Domme.

Think of approaching a prospective Mistress as having more in common with an outing to a new, fashionable club. There’s preliminary legwork that must be done to prepare (such as making a reservation, or learning what the dress code entails). The establishment wants a certain type of clientele because the club’s clientele is a reflection of the club. And because many people want to experience the club, the proprietor can be picky about who gets in. Once inside the club, the visitor’s main expectation is to simply experience the club. The goal is not cheap drunkenness. Instead, it’s to experience the whole ambiance of the club, to relish the very experience of it, and to enjoy drinks that are expertly prepared. It’s a premium experience that is being sought, and it’s not bargain priced.

Knowing this, how should a client tailor their approach to a prospective Mistress?

As a wise person once said, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Pro-Dommes are approached by numerous prospective clients. Many of these men fall victim to the Mistress’ delete button. Because so many who approach us are time wasters who regard us as masturbation fodder, we have no choice but to discard the e-mails of those who exhibit insensitivity or lack of social awareness. If you properly introduce yourself in that first communication (presumably an e-mail), you will stand out from the crowd and you will please the Domme.

So, keeping in mind the exclusive nature of sessioning with the best Pro-Dommes, and knowing that you must make your very best impression in order to earn the opportunity to serve a Mistress, what protocol should a prospective submissive follow?

Step 1: Do Your Research

You most likely found the Mistress through her website, so read it! Read every word; don’t just perv on her pics. Her website is a reflection of who she is. It will tell you her interests, her likes and dislikes, and (most importantly) how she likes things done. It is basically a virtual version of herself. It is her domain. I repeat, read every word.

Step 2: Exhibit Self-Awareness & Honesty

Someone who is self-aware makes a good client. Know what you want, and know what you are capable of delivering. There is a big difference between fantasy and reality. It may make a good fantasy to envision life as my 24-7 slave, a slave that will do everything I say without question. But please don’t waste my time with your fantasy unless you actually: 1) truly want that, and 2) can provide that. If you have a day job as an attorney or a CFO or an engineer, I don’t think you’re going to be giving that up anytime soon. Don’t waste my time with your masturbatory fantasy. Just keep it to yourself, please. What I would like to know is what you can truly offer me. If what you can offer is a client who would like to session with me every couple of weeks… perhaps because you enjoy bottoming watersports (feel free to insert your favorite fetish here) but don’t have a woman in your life who is into that, THEN SAY THAT! That type of communication shows self-awareness and, hey, it’s honest. Honesty makes a Mistress happy.

Step 3: Don’t Be Creepy

No, of course you’re not creepy, not in your regular life. You’re normal. You have a normal job, a normal family, normal friends, and normal hobbies and interests. Most likely, you probably even have a pretty normal sex life. Please don’t take this opportunity while communicating with a Pro-Domme to suddenly turn into a strange incarnation of yourself. Don’t be a troll, and please don’t harass the Mistress. Approach her as you would any business professional.

Step 4: Be Respectful

Address the Pro-Domme how she wants to be addressed. Some Mistresses want to be called Mistress or Goddess or another title. Other Mistresses prefer NOT to be addressed that way by strangers. If you have read the Mistress’ website completely, she most likely specified how she would like to be addressed.

Send a photo if the Mistress requested you do so, but don’t send graphically sexual photos. If she wants these, she will request them when she is ready for them.

Step 5: Begin Building a Connection

Don’t give empty compliments. Most Dominatrices have an extremely good bullshit meter. Do show her that you are interested in her specifically. What is it about her that attracted you? Begin to also share some personal information about yourself: a physical description, career, location, marital status, whether you have a car (that can be important when considering service submissives, especially). Also, be sure to include the times you are most often available for sessions and, of course, your contact information.

Step 6: Present Yourself Favorably

In your e-mail, put your best foot forward, but also be yourself- the most respectful version of yourself. Every Mistress will have personal preferences regarding the type of submissive with whom she most enjoys playing. You can’t be who you aren’t, so be who you are. Don’t grovel and don’t beg. This generally makes most Dominatrices want to vomit. Try approaching her as a man with respect for himself and respect for all women.


By following the above six steps when approaching a Pro-Domme, you will demonstrate to the Mistress that you are sincere, respectful, and would make an enjoyable, interesting submissive. You will find your success rate with the most desirable Pro-Dommes will increase. You will also find those first few sessions with your new Mistress will be even more enjoyable for both of you.

Discoloration on the Penis: Causes and Treatment Options

While men may not use all the tonics and potions created for the facial skin, preferring a more rugged look, when it comes to their penises, men notice immediately when something seems to be off. Discoloration on the penis is one of those issues that often makes a man take notice of his skin and can lead to unnecessary panic. Most reasons for a discolored penis are results of a small injury, and the coloring fade with time; although there are a few potential reasons for worry. Here are a few of the most common causes of discoloration on the penis and how to manage them.

1) Bruising – One of the quickest ways to get a discolored penis is through injury. After a penile injury, bruising can appear in a variety of discolorations, from purple to blue or even a greenish hue. If there is an excessive pain post-injury, seek medical attention immediately. It could be a more serious issue like a penile fracture.

2) Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) – It’s completely normal for men to have some variance of skin coloration. However, if a man notices that skin has darkened suddenly or within a short span of time, it’s understandable he may worry. Most times it’s just post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is simply an overproduction of melanin, the body’s skin pigment maker. The skin can appear in a wide variety of colors including blue, gray, or dark brown.

Overproduction generally happens after an injury to the skin, the most common being excessive rubbing of the penis from vigorous sex or self-pleasure. It will fade over time, or if a man is bothered by it, topical treatment with retinol each night before bed can accelerate healing.

3) Penile Vitiligo – Vitiligo is known as the “white skin patch disease” made most famous by the late Michael Jackson. This skin disorder is caused by a loss of melanocytes from the epidermis. Penile Vitiligo most often occurs as a penile discoloration on the foreskin. It must be diagnosed by a doctor through a physical exam. It can be treated with medication, creams, lasers and surgical techniques.

4) Hematoma – If a man is seeing red, blotchy skin or blood vessels under the surface of the skin, he may have a hematoma. This happens after an injury to the penis. The discoloration on the penis will fade in time; however, if he feels pain or discomfort, medical attention should be sought.

5) Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) – Sometimes purple sores on the penis can be evidence of a sexually transmitted infection like genital herpes or syphilis. Both STIs are accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, fever, itchiness, burning, and fatigue. Head to a medical clinic or see a physician as soon as possible to be tested and get treatment.

Preventing and Caring for a Discolored Penis

First and foremost, practice safe sex. Use a condom to prevent STIs and always have an open dialogue about sexual and medical history with partners, even if it ruins the mood. Next, wear appropriate protective gear during group or adventure sports so that the penis is not an unfortunate casualty of a pick-up basketball game. Also, be sure to monitor the vigorousness of sex and self-gratification so pleasure doesn’t turn painful.

In addition to those tips, practice good grooming to keep the penis in top shape. Cleanse regularly and thoroughly with a gentle cleanser. Follow up cleansing with a specifically formulated penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to soften and soothe the penis. These specially created crèmes should have a nourishing, natural base like Shea butter and include vitamins and nutrients like vitamins A, B5, C, D, and E to promote healthy skin and cellular function, and Alpha-Lipoic Acid to reduce the signs of cellular damage and aging. These crèmes leave the penis hydrated and promote healing.

Why Extended Computer Work Causes Back Pain and What to Do About It

SAN RAMON, CA – You are sitting at your desk, typing away as usual. You notice pain in your neck, shoulders, wrists and hands developing. You shake your hands and stretch your neck, and continue with your routine. Weeks go by, and all of a sudden you notice that the pain does not go away like it did before. Why is this happening?

Simply put, the human body is not designed to be sitting sedentary in front of a computer terminal. There are over 200 joint surfaces that make up your spine; all of which need to be moving frequently in order to stay healthy. With intense computer work, this is difficult to do. Since computers have permeated everyday life at the same level as watching TV, the issue of pain is of major concern.

Computer work sets the stage for repetitive strain injuries, or RSIs. RSIs are "overuse" injuries that result in microtears to ligaments, tendons, fascia (tissue covering muscle), and in some cases, nerves. RSIs include tendonitis, epicondylitis (elbow), tenosynovitis (tendon that extends the thumb), and carpal tunnel syndrome (wrist and hand).

The first mistake an RSI victim makes is having her keyboard and mouse too high. And, a distance as small as an inch can mean too high. This will cause one to subconscious contract the upper trapezius and neck muscles in order to raise the arms and hands over the keyboard. Over time, this contraction can lead to strain.

The second mistake is not keeping the wrists straight. Many people bend their wrists when typing; these teters the median nerve and may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.

The third mistake is reaching forward to type. It's best to keep the upper arm in line with your torso. Reaching forward requires contraction of the upper shoulder and deltoid muscles; they will start to fatigue more quickly in this position.

The fourth mistake is not taking enough mini-breaks. Every 10-15 minutes, stop for a minute and stretch your wrists to get blood flowing.

A "stealth" cause of neck and shoulder pain is monitor glare. Monitor glare causes vision fatigue, which causes you to subconsciously bring your head closer to the monitor so that you can see better. When the center of gravity of the head (a 10-12 lb. weight) moves forward of the spine, a lever-arm is created. This means that a force is generated at the back of your neck and upper spine to counteract the weight of the head. Over time, it leads to neck stiffness and tension headaches.

In summary, make sure to keep your keyboard and mouse low enough that you do not have to lift your shoulder in order to type. This will require an adjustable keyboard tray. Keep your upper arm in line with your torso, and your elbows 90-110 degrees. Wrists straight. Angle your chair back about 5 degrees to take some pressure off your low back.

Keep your head up so that your ears are directly over your shoulders. Look away from your monitor and focus on an object at least 20 feet away to prevent lens fatigue.

For some people, it's too late to fix the problem by making corrective ergonomic adjustments. In this case, consider chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic can help by repositioning your skull directly over your spelling to reduce the lever-arm; theby reducing neck and shoulder muscle contractions. Adjustments are done using a special table called a Drop Table that moves the lower cervical and upper thoracic vertebrae forward, and the head backwards. The end result is better posture and less muscle strain. Additionally, chiropractic adjustments to the collar bone, shoulder blade, ribcage, elbow and wrist joints can help remove restrictions and allow better movement.

Hair Loss – How to Minimize It

As we get older, hair loss is not that uncommon, particularly in men. Hair loss can be rather discouraging, especially for those of us that consider our great looking hair to be a real source of pride. However, if you have been experiencing loss of your hair recently, there is no need to worry as I have some excellent tips that I would love to share with you!

Sometimes hair loss will occur due to certain nutritional deficiencies in one’s diet. Therefore, if you have been having problems with losing your hair recently, I would highly recommend that you look into supplementing your diet with vitamins such as Biotin and Vitamin B6. The reason for this is that these particular vitamins are known to promote strong, healthy hair, and when people are deficient in these particular nutrients, they have been known to lose hair more readily. Omega 3 fatty acids are also known to work wonders on a wide variety of medical conditions, including hair loss. Therefore, I would also recommend that you add Omega 3 supplements to your diet regimen.

Also, rapid weight loss can often cause hair to fall out. Therefore, if you have lost a great deal of weight in a fairly short span of time recently, then that very well may be the reason that you have been experiencing hair loss. In the future, if and when decide to go on a strict diet regimen, it is always best to supplement your diet with a daily multivitamin supplement in order to help you eliminate or at least minimize any negative consequences to your health that may result from dieting.

Losing hair can also be stress related, so if you have been feeling rather stressed out lately, this could have a lot to do with why you’ve been losing some of your hair. The best thing to do in this case in order to help minimize it is to try some different stress management techniques. Different things work for different people when it comes to managing stress. However, some commonly used stress management techniques that are known to be effective are meditation, yoga and/or taking a nice, long, relaxing soak in the bathtub.

If your hair loss symptoms seem especially severe, you may want to ask your doctor if he is willing to give you a prescription for Propecia. Propecia is a prescription medication that is taken in pill form, and it has been specially developed to help re-grow hair. It’s important to note that Propecia is for men only and should not be taken by women.

A good idea is also to talk about your problem with other people who have been losing hair. Join a hair loss online community or group, for ongoing support and ideas. I wish you the best of luck, and I hope that the aforementioned tips on how to minimize hair loss have been helpful to you!

Celebrating Independently-Minded Women In America

Fighting For Women's Rights & Education

From early on, women bought for their rights – whether it was to own land, to give girls the opportunity for a good education, or for equal rights in the workplace. Here are some women who stand out in history:

Margaret Brent: In 1639, Brent became the first female landowner in Maryland. A close friend of Governor Leonard Calvert, he appointed her the executor of his estate. The Provincial Court appointed Brent as Lord Baltimore's attorney-in-fact in 1648 and, as part of her duties, she made sure soldiers were paid and fed and her actions helped to avoid mutiny in the colony. She was a significant finding settler of both Maryland and Virginia. She was also the first woman in North America to appear before a common law court.

Sarah Josepha Hale: The author of the nursery rhyme "Mary had a little lamb" was a fierce supporter of education for girls. After her husband's death in 1822, Hale launched her writing and magazine editing career to support her five children. She was instrumental in changing minds to allow girls into professions like teaching, and later medicine.

"In this age of innovation during no experience will have an influence more important on the character and happiness of our society than the granting to females the advantages of a systematic and thorough education." – Sarah Josepha Hale

Gloria Steinem: In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Steinem became nationally recognized as the spokeswoman for the feminist movement. She is a journalist and social and political activist and is currently speaking about the issues of equality through the world.

In 1920, American women got the right to vote – after 70 years of fighting for this right. Over the years, there were many women who helped fight for the right to vote. Here we highlight some of the most prominent:

Lucy Stone: In 1847, Stone became the first woman in Massachusetts to earn a college degree. She was a vocal advocate for women's rights and the abolition of slavery at a time when women were discouraged and even preverted to speak in public. Stone kept her maiden name after her marriage – something that was strictly frowned upon at the time. She founded the Woman's Journal, a weekly magazine about women's rights.

Lucretius Mott: Mott believed that the roles women played in society at the time were due to limited education, not inferiority. She supported equal political rights and economic opportunities.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton: Stanton helped form the first women's rights convention in 1848, with Lucretia Mott.

"Self-development is a higher duty than self-sacrifice." – Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Women In Politics

Not so long ago, women were not allowed to participate in political affairs. Here are some women who helped change the gender gap in politics:

Jeannette Rankin: Selected in 1916, Rankin was the first woman in Congress. Prior to joining Congress, she was a professional lobbyist for the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA), and her efforts helped women in Montana to gain the vote in 1914.

"I may be the first woman member of Congress, but I will not be the last." – Jeannette Rankin

Eleanor Roosevelt: The wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, she dramatically changed the role of the first lady through her active participation in American politics. During her husband's presidency, Roosevelt wrote a newspaper column, cave press conferences, and spoke about human rights, children's causes, and women's issues. After his death, she became the delegate to the United Nations and served from 1945 to 1953. She also served as the chair of the UN's Human Rights Commission.

"Women are like teabags. You do not know how strong they are until you put them in hot water." – Eleanor Roosevelt

Madeleine Albright: In 1993, Albright became the US Ambassador to the United Nations. In 1997, she was appointed as the first female US Secretary of State. In 2012, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Albright holds a Ph.D. from Columbia University, as well as numerous honorary degrees.

Women In Sports, Adventure, And Entertainment

A woman can hold their own when it comes to adventure, entertainment, and sports. Here are some of the women who excelled:

Amelia Earhart: An aviation pioneer, author, and idol to many, Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She helped form The Ninety-Nines, an organization supporting female pilots. She was also an adviser to the aeronautical engineering faculty at Purdue University and a career counselor to female students. In 1937, she disappeared near Howland Island during an attempt to make a circumnavigation flight of the globe.

"The woman who can create her own job is the woman who will win fame and fortune." – Amelia Earhart

Florence Chadwick: Chadwick was 32 years old when she became the first woman to swim the English Channel both ways in 1951. She attempted the crossing ten times, of which she successfully completed four legs.

Katherine Hepburn: This leading lady was known for her fiercely independence and outspoken personality. Hepburn wore trousers before it was fashionable for women to do so and lived her life independently and out of the spotlight. During her career of more than 60 years, Hepburn won four Academy Awards for Best Actress. She died in 2003.


Many women have great results every day, but here are some pioneers:

Bridget 'Biddy' Mason: Born a slave, Biddy had to fight for her freedom in an LA court in 1856. California, where she lived at the time, was a free state, but her 'owner', Smith, wanted to move them to Texas, where slaves were not free, to sell his slaves there. After winning in court and becoming free, she worked in Los Angeles as a nurse and midwife. She became one of the first African-Americans to purchase land in the city. A real-estate businesswoman, she accrued a reliably large fortune for the time – nearly $ 300,000 – which she generously shared with charities.

Ellen Swallow Richards: Richards was an industrial and environmental chemist, and the first to apply chemistry to the study of nutrition. She was the first woman admitted to any school of science and technology in America, and also the first woman to obtain a degree in chemistry. She graduated from MIT in 1872.

Winifred Edgerton Merril: Merrill was the first woman in the US to obtain a Ph.D. in Mathematics and the first to receive a degree from Columbia University. She achieved her Ph.D. with high honors in 1886. She was instrumental in the formation of the Barnard College in 1889, New York's first institution to award women a degree in liberal arts. She also founded the Oaksmere School for Girls in 1906.

Elizabeth Blackwell: In 1849, Blackwell became the first female physician in the US and the first woman listed on the UK Medical Register. Originally born in Britain, Blackwell had to fight to get permission to study and work in the medical field. She advocated for the education of women in medicine.

Sandra Day O'Connor: Appointed in 1981, O'Connor became the first woman justice on the US Supreme Court, a position she held for 24 years.

Treating Gout Pain Can Be Achieved With Uricinex

Gout is a painful condition that affects the joints. It has been described as one of the oldest forms of arthritis, and it is caused by an overload of uric acid in the bloodstream. There are many treatments for gout, but some give sufferers unpleasant side effects. An all natural remedy called Uricinex has been used to alleviate this pain with favorable results.

People who have used Uricinex have reported that it is very effective in reducing the swelling and pain within a few days. Regular use of this natural medication can be vital in bringing a patient back to a functioning level without damage other major systems of the body.

Traditional, prescription based drugs have been known to damage the liver and many people have opted to try out a more natural alternative. The key ingredients used here are herbs and nutrients that are combined to relieve pain and swelling in the joints. It helps the body to rid itself of excess uric acid by enabling healthy function of the kidneys and the liver.

This product claims to nurture healthy cell membrane development and maintenance by using all natural ingredients in its product. It also argues that the balance of ingredients in the proper dosages can successfully aid with the elimination process the body needs to stay in good shape.

The company that produces this herbal remedy does not tout it as a cure for gout. It is a supplement that aids in the body in getting rid of the uric acid that causes this very debilitating affliction. They suggest that a diet that is purine limited is the best way to manage a gout flare up in the long term arena.

Since Uricinex has very mild side effects, it is a great alternative to pharmaceutical remedies. If you are plagued by the pain and swelling that gout brings, you may want to do some research on the most affective way to make you comfortable and pain free, while steering away from the more serious side effects traditional remedies can present.

Function and Uses of a Medical Centrifuge

Medical centrifuges come in various sizes and apply to many different applications, making them an extremely useful device whether in a doctor’s office, hospital environment, or laboratory.

Modern centrifuges are basically compact, made either of plastic or metal, and are visually appealing; they normally sit on a counter top on rubber feet so they do not move while in operation. The bottom may be weighted to make it stable while in use. Size will determine how many glass test tubes or vials it may hold at one time. They are controlled by a timer and have at least two speeds, low and high. Many also have the capability to keep the interior cool so when the appliance is working, particularly on high speed, the contents will remain cool instead of heating up as would normally happen when the centrifugal force is applied.

There are many medical applications for a medical centrifuge including studies of viruses, proteins, polymers, nucleic acids, and blood. They can separate serum as well as from plasma from blood, and solids from liquids. The uses are many and not restricted to the medical field alone.

Having a timer is convenient when uses include extended periods of time required for separation of ingredients. The high speed spin creates an artificial gravity that, depending on the substance, will separate the ingredients quickly or slowly.

Medical centrifuges can spin at amazing speeds, especially the variable speed models. They can produce from eight hundred revolutions per minute (RPM) up to a blazing two and a half million RPM. Average use and application for most centrifuges with a minimum of two speeds (low and high) are from two thousand RPM up to sixty thousand RPM. Most uses require the higher speeds but for shorter periods of time.

It is a difference in density that causes most substances to separate when run through a cycle in a medical centrifuge. The high speed units are called ultracentrifuges and these are generally bench top units which require some means of fastening them down on the counter or bench top so they stay in place while in use. Uses for ultracentrifuges include the separation of gases to determine molecular weight of certain liquids. They are put to use as a means of separating uranium 235 for nuclear reactors. The temperature requires strict control in many of these applications due to sensitivity of the ingredients. They will become extremely hot at high revolutions which are actually a form of friction.

While an average medical centrifuge may cost anywhere from a few hundred to several hundred thousand dollars, there is one instance of an efficient device being created by chemists at a university which cost a mere two dollars to make. The device is basically an old fashioned egg beater to which was added plastic tubing held on by tape. It is capable of creating a low speed centrifugal force that actually will separate blood cells from plasma and has proven useful for simple laboratory tests in instances where no lab or equipment is available. It proves that human ingenuity can work many wonders.

How to Find the Best Omega 3 Supplement

Omega 3 fatty acids are known to be beneficial to the body in many ways. These fatty acids are normally found in fish oil, but some are from plant sources as well.

Best omega 3 supplement – what is it?

The best omega 3 supplement is fish oil that contains two important components, DHA and EPA. DHA is the more important of these two and is beginning to be noticed by more consumers, even those without a particular interest in nutrition. DHA is being added to milk, baby food, and various other food products, often from plant-based oils. There is some controversy over whether or not plant-based supplements are as effective as those made from fish oil.

Benefits of omega 3 supplements

Some of the health benefits of these oils are that they act as beneficial health for the heart and immune system. Multiple studies have proven that they lower triglycerides and slowdown the buildup of plaque in the treaties. They reduce the risk of heart attack and irregular heart rhythms and even lower blood pressure slowly. They keep joints healthy and improve arthritis symptoms for many people.

Are all fish oil supplements the same?

Many stores have rows of fish oil supplies on their shelves, and an increasing number of websites sell omega 3 supplements. Without knowing more about them, it's impossible to know which one to buy. Some expensive supplements do not have the qualities they should have for optimum health benefits, and some less expensive ones may have very little benefit or could be better than expensive omega 3 supplements. Consumers need to know that the amount of DHA and EPA should be listed on the ingredient list on the back of the bottle. If the manufacturer does not list the amounts of these ingredients, the supplement is probably low in these and is probably not worth buying. Many experts recommend that oils used to make omega 3 supplements should come from fish in the New Zealand area where the Southern Ocean waters are less polluted than those of other oceans.

Other important qualities of the best omega 3 supplements

Beside looking for high levels of DHA and EPA, it is important to know how the oil is decontaminated. Fish that are used to make omega 3 supplements often have mercury and other dangerous elements in them that end up in the oil. Manufacturers of supplements are not required by law to decontaminate the oil, but high quality omega 3 supplements have gone through a process to ensure that arsenic, mercury, and other elements have been removed. Another thing to look for in quality supplements is their freshness. Rancid oil can cause burping up the fish odor and taste due to the oxidation in the oil. This oil is particularly bad because it contains free radicals that are not good for the body. Experts sometimes recommend not buying supplements with flavoring since since it is often added to disguise a rancid flavor. The best omega 3 supplements also have high anti-inflammatory qualities which are also important since inflammation causing many problems in the body, including those related to the circulatory system and the heart.

How to know which omega 3 supplement to go for?

Research several companies who sell supplements, preferably online since online vendors typically provide the most information about how they produce their supplements. Companies with proven research results about their supplements test them often, and they can provide you with the results of their tests. These are the safest and best companies to buy supplements from because you will know exactly what you are paying for.

Headaches – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

The causes of headaches are many and it is always advisable to understand the root of all head pains before attempting to counteract them. Since such pains are Nature's means of warning us of internal disturbances, it is unwisely to attempt to treat the headache alone, but rather to understand its origin and treat both cause and symptom.

Among the most common conditions creating headaches can be identified eye strain, stomach disorders, menstruation, hunger, high blood pressure, rheumatics, sinusitis and nervous tension. If you know your body as you should and if you are aware from day to day of your general health, there should be little reason for you not to be able to recognize and treat the cause of your headache.

While each case was individually diagnosed and treated, there was a general course of treatment used to alleviate headaches. The full pack was prescribed, to be taken for a period of one hour. Cold compresses were applied during the pack. Immediately following this patient was bathed in lukewarm water (86 °). Finally, cold affusions (water jets) were directed at the head and back of the neck. In the case of the nervous headache, the affusions were also directed at the spinal column, running slowly up and down the length of the patient's back. The affusions provided particularly successful. Light diets, particularly vegetarian, were also prescribed.

Zone therapy was used with amazing results in treating chronic headaches. I recall a woman of thirty who had suffered the pain of chronic headaches for a period of two years without relief. The woman was despondent upon entering the sanatorium and it was necessary that her condition be deal with at once, lest she lost her sanity entirely. Asking that the woman open her mouth, I thrust a flat metal object into her mouth and pressed up the roof of the mouth with such strength as to almost cause the woman to cry out. Five minutes later, when the metal device (similar to an ordinary tablespoon) was removed from her mouth, the woman was unable to believe her own senses. The headache, partner to her two-year misery, had entirely disappeared.

This case cited above was not the exception but the rule as regards the allocation of heads. Time and again zone therapy provided the answer to this problem. The application of zone therapy in the case of heads varied only in accordance with the area of ​​the head affected. Where the pain was centred in the frontal area of ​​the head, the zone pressure was applied at a corresponding point on the roof of the mouth.

Infertility and Fertility Treatment

Infertility is defined as a male's or female's incapacity or reduced biological ability to contribute to the conception of a child. More commonly, it is defined as the inability to become pregnant after 12 months of intercourse without birth control. Infertility may also refer to a woman's inability to carry a pregnancy to full term.

Infertility affects about 1 in every of couples in their reproductive age. In the US, approx. 7% of married couples in which the woman was of reproductive age (2.1 million) reported they were not able to get pregnant after trying for one year (2002 National Survey of Family Growth).

In some cases, both the man and woman may be sub-fertil. In other cases, each partner is each fertile but the couple can not conceive together without assistance. In approx. 1 / 3rd of the cases, the male is infertile, in 1 / 3rd the female is infertile, and in 1 / 3rd, it can be either one of them, or the cause is unknown. In about 15% of cases, investigation will show no abnormalities which can be detected by current methods.

Egg quality is also of critical importance, especially for women of advanced maternal age. Or it may be a question of the egg not being released at the optimum time for fertilization, or the sperm not being able to reach the egg, or fertilization may fail to occur.

If you are trying to get pregnant, and are considering a fertility treatment, do not opt ​​immediately for the most advanced and expensive Fertility Treatments, such as IVF, thinking you'll get pregnant faster.

You have a number of Fertility Treatments available, which include: fertility drugs, surgery, IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, donor eggs, and surrogacy. In 85% to 95% of cases, Infertility can be treated with conventional Fertility Treatments, such as drug treatment. These solutions are more affordable and less invasive than some of the other options.

Here's an overview of your Fertility Treatment options, ranked from the least to the most invasive:

Fertility drugs: These drugs can help get a female's or males reproductive system and hormones in balance.

Artificial Insemination: Sometimes the male's sperm needs help getting to the female's egg. Placing a dose of sperm in your uterus at the proper time will improve one's chances of getting pregnant.

Surgery: Some women have blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, fibroids, or ovarian cysts, or genetic defects. A minor surgery, performed with a laparoscope (a fiber-thin tube) can help diagnose the problem. However, more intensive surgery may be required.

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART): ART can introduce the hi-tech In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), or in rare cases, GIFT or ZIFT. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of ART have failed. It involves surgically removing eggs (ova) from a woman's ovaries, fertilizing them with sperm in the laboratory, and returning them to the woman's body. Both Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer and Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer are ART procedures, which involve removing the woman's eggs, mixing them with the male's sperm, and implanting them in the woman's Fallopian tubes. With ZIFT, fertilization takes place outside the body, and with GIFT, fertilization takes place inside the body. Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is a procedure in which a single sperm (especially donor sperm) is injected directly into an egg.

Egg Donation: Occasionally, a woman may require to use a egg donor, depending on her age, and egg quality.

The 6 Medical Conditions that Can Cause Sciatica

Can Sciatica be Cured? (Part 1)

This article is not a scientific account of sciatica, but my very personal experience of it, how it affected me and what I tried to do to recover or at least get some improvement. I tried to pass on some of the more general information about sciatica that I discovered on the internet and how it helped or did not help me on the road of recovery.

I discovered that there are a number of reasons why you "get" sciatica or sciatic lower back pain. For myself, I can only give a guesstimate of what the reason is why I got sciatica as I did not go for a MRI or CT scan (because of financial constraints). My MD explained to me that sciatica is not a disease, but only describes a certain kind of pain. This painful pain is caused by any kind of pressure on the large sciatic nerve that exits through an opening in the spine in the lumbar region and travels down through the buttocks and then to the back of the leg, so "transferring" the pain to these areas.

I just want to add that since that fateful day that I was diagnosed with sciatica back pain, I made an in-depth study of this affliction to get as most information about it to see what I can do to get a cure. Now I do not say that I know everything about sciatica, but I am confident that I do know much, much more about it and the way it affects a person. As far as a cure is concerned, as I mentioned earlier, this is something that one has to try different treatments or combination of treatments to find out what is the best for you.

I was diagnosed with sciatica about a year ago in February 2014 after experiencing the classic sciatic lower back, buttock and leg pain and in this article I will chat about the source of sciatica, what may be the cause and finally how to get rid or completely cure it.

To start off, I want to give you a picture of what sciatica is, how you get it, how it affects a person and the different types of treatments that you can experiment with. There are drugs, exercises, stretching exercises, creams and even a psychological approach to the problem.

How do You Get Sciatica. Part 1

Primarily, there is no single cure for sciatica and every person will have his / her own set of treatments for the problem. This suggests that a certain number of trials and errors must be done before one can find a balanced and individualized treatment plan that will be based on the symptoms, diagnosis and reaction to the various treatments.

· Characteristics of Sciatica.

o You will have a continuous pain from the pined area in your back, running through the buttocks down to the leg, sometimes even reaching your foot. Very rarely this can affect both legs.

o This pain in the leg will make it very difficult to stand.

o Lying down or sitting can make it worse.

o You will find a weakness or numbness of the leg and it will be difficult to move.

o The pain can be described as a very sharp, stinging pain that can at times become unbearable.

The 6 Types of Medical Conditions that Can Cause Sciatica.

There are basically six different reasons of what can cause sciatic back pain:

1. Lumbar Herniated Disk.

2. Degenerative Disk Disease.

3. Isthmic spondylolisthesis.

4. Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.

5. Piriformis Syndrome.

6. Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

I will try to explain what these important sounding terms means: –

1. Lumbar Herniated Disk.

A lumbar disk consists of an outer portion which contains a soft inner portion. When the fibrous outer portion ruptures, the softer inner portion leaks out into the spinal canal putting pressure on the spinal nerve. This will cause pain to travel down the nerve into the buttocks and down the leg.

Symptoms of a Lumbar Herniated Disc

  • Basically sciatica usually starts with a severe pain in the lower back, buttocks and the leg.
  • This pain can be followed by numbness or tingling and weakness in the leg, making it difficult to walk and dragging the foot.
  • The leg pain may in some cases even be more severe that the back pain
  • Sometimes this can also affect the bowel and bladder functions, at which point you are urged to consult a physician because it can point to a very serious medical condition.

L4-L5 and L5-S1 Disc Herniation Symptoms.

Most of these conditions will occur in the bottom lower part of the spell, affecting the L4-L5 or L5-S1 levels. Classic sciatica symptoms will be present and can lead to the following:

  • L5 nerve impingement at the L4- L5 level. This can also bring a weakness in the ankle and big toe, but the numbness will be felt on top of the foot with the pain extending to the buttocks …
  • S1 nerve impingement at the L5-S1 levels. Causes weakness or loss of the ankle reflex and / or a weakness in lifting up the big toe (toe rises). The patient can also experience pain down the sole or outside of the foot.

This is the first installment of a series of "How do you Get Sciatica" These articles will begin with the discussion of what is sciatica, how you can contract Sciatica, then move on to the different conditions that can cause it, and lastly, what you can do for relief of the pain. In the second part of these articles, I will discuss the condition called Degenerative Disk Disease. (DDD)
