Can Eating Meat Cause Man Boobs?

More and more people are beginning to look at the foods they consume and are finding that they are often a leading cause of obesity and more namely, man boobs. One of the worst areas of food as of late is meat. While meat itself is not strictly to blame, we must look at the chemicals and hormones that are given to the animals to encourage abnormal and quick weight gain.

Although people in the meat industry will quickly deny that any of the products they pump into the animals, which we consume by eating meat, have any affect on humans what so ever, it does not take much of a questioning mind to wonder how much truth is behind their answer. I personally find it quite hard to believe that a hormone given to an animal to produce fast and extreme growth will have absolutely no effect on me when I eat a piece of meat from that animal. It has been proven that there are identifiable paths of these hormones still in the meat when it hits your dinner plate, so one must suspect that these hormones will have some affect you once you consume them.

If you are not quite ready to go the vegetarian route, there are still options available to you. More and more supermarkets are starting to carry organic foods including meats. Any farm that desires to label their meat as organic must abide by strict guidelines and allow their animals to eat and grow in a totally natural way. Of course by doing this, it puts the cost of the meat produced up as the quantity is drastically reduced.

As for my personal preference, if I plan to eat any meat I can assure you it will be organic. No matter how many businessmen and hired doctors tell me the hormones pumped into animals on normal farms will not have any affect on me what-so-ever, I still find it to be a hard pill to swallow. Simply knowing that those unnatural chemicals are present turns me off any meal containing non organic meat.

You too should be very weary of non organic meat as there is really no telling just what else you will end up consuming. I am sure there is nothing in there that will cause any severe ailments, but when you are in the tough battle of getting rid of man boobs, there is simply no reason to take the chance. By eliminating non-organic meat, or meat altogether from your diet, I am sure you will see much better, and much quicker results.

Homemade Skin Bleach – Are You Making This Mistake With Homemade Skin Bleach?

Homemade skin bleach seems to be a very popular remedy for a very nasty problem bothering both men and women alike. It does not matter how old you are, or what type of skin you have: dark spots, skin discoloration, sun damage will sooner or later make their ugly appearance on your face when you least expect it.

What can you do about it you might ask? – There is only one answer: Deal with it right away. Don’t wait for them to go away on their own. They won’t! I see another question coming up: Exactly how do I make my dark skin spots go away? Here you have some choices:

1) you can either make your own homemade skin bleach or

2) use a skin brightener with a good reputation and proven skin brightening effect.

Let’s look at option number one: homemade skin bleach. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a homemade skin bleach?

I would like to lay it right out for you: using your own home made skin bleach might seem like a great solution because:

  • you can control what ingredient you are putting into the end product;
  • you do not need to pay sometimes higher prices for a ready made skin brightener;
  • if you are getting an adverse skin reaction to your homemade skin bleach you can easily adjust your recipe formula and try again until you see the desirable effect;
  • you don’t need to spend any time on going to stores to buy yourself an over-the-counter skin brightener.
  • Some important things to remember before using your own homemade skin bleach:
  • Always clean your facial skin thoroughly prior to bleaching your skin
  • Never apply skin bleach to your eye area or eye lids
  • Remember: if you are bleaching your face skin, you should also bleach your neck. Otherwise you will get a funny looking difference between your facial skin and your neck skin color.
  • If this is your very first time trying to use a homemade skin bleach, don’t do it right before (or shortly before) an important even like a birthday party, wedding, graduation, corporate party etc. Chances are the first time try will give you some unpredictable results as well as negative skin reaction. It might take a few days before your skin settles and the redness is gone!

How do I know all this you might ask? Because I’ve done it all myself. One day I complained to my best friend about a dark spot on my skin under my left eye and how much it was bothering me. She happily shared a “great and instant solution” for my irritating problem. She gave me her own proven homemade skin bleach recipe. I gladly followed her advice… and I did it the day before I had to go to a wedding. To make the story short: I wished I used my concealer instead!

I will give you just one more warning: if you skin starts to feel a bit of a burning sensation, it might be a normal reaction. But if you feel an intense burning feeling – remove your homemade skin bleach off your skin right away! As a great precaution method it is highly recommended to do a five minute skin test (on the inside of your arm) to make sure this procedure is right for your skin type.

If all this seems like something you might want to try on your own, you most certainly can. But if you are looking for a safer and many times proven alternative to a homemade skin bleach, you need to know that there are some good and even great safe, very effective all natural skin brighteners out there that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Insomnia Scope and Mode of Treatment

Insomnia or lack of sleep is a kind of sleep disorder characterized by disturbances in sleep and disturbed sleep patterns. Insomnia represents a particular symptom and is not a disease or diagnosis in itself. Lack of quality sleep due to this sleep disorder can result in fatigue, restlessness and feeling tired all day.

What it is
Insomnia is characterized by an inability to fall sleep or get quality sleep. Every individual has their own benchmark of quality sleep and the number of hours' sleep they should be getting. This is why insomnia as a sleep disorder does not have a particular number of hours' sleep because this statistic would vary from one person to another. Insomnia can negatively affect quality of life as well as daily life activities especially since the person has not had sufficient sleep. Sleep is essential to enable the body to repair itself, improve immunity and gain energy. Poor immunity can translate into being more prone to diseases and illnesses. However, in spite of these debilitating conditions, most people remain unaware that this sleep disorder can be treated with psychiatric and medical assistance. We have teams of dedicated physicians who enable patients with insomnia to confront their issues and recognize patterns that are disabling their sleep schedule.

Symptoms
Common symptoms associated with insomnia include difficulty with falling sleep, frequently waking up through the night, stress, various daytime symptoms, which stem from chronic insomnia. The daytime symptoms of this sleep disorder include inability to focus or concentrate, being uncoordinated or suffering from hampered motor coordination, unable to remember things properly, hampered social interaction or feeling irritable, accidents due to sleep deprivation and fatigue. Persons who consume alcohol and suffer from insomnia will aggravate this sleep disorder since alcohol tends to take away from the ability to sleep. Some people with this sleep disorder may turn to sleeping aid medication, without a prescription. However, this can be dangerous as not knowing the correct dosage can trigger negative results. Most people with insomnia will not experience daytime sleepiness and yet will experience great difficulty in falling sleep at night. Sleep apnea is a contributing factor to insomnia. Sleep apnea occurs when there is an obstruction in the breathing pattern due to which the victim has to gas for breath every now and then, resulting in loss of sleep as many as 100 times in a single night. Not having proper sleep preparation patterns can also contribute to lack of sleep.

Treatment Options
In the case of chronic insomnia the victim can suffer from highly debilitating symptoms affecting daily life. In this case psychiatric and medical assistance becomes essential. Most sleep disorder patterns originate from psychological issues. Anxiety and stress can be the largest culprits causing insomnia. The treatment of insomnia can include pharmacological (involving medication) as well as non pharmacological treatments. The non pharmacological treatments such as brain music therapy are fast gaining popularity because of their ability to cure patients successfully. In this type of sleep disorder therapy, brain waves are converted to corresponding music sounds, which are played to the patient to admit them to relax and get sleep.

Facebook for Nail Technicians – How and Why

Many Nail Techs are using Facebook now as a part of their overall marketing strategy and are doing it quite effectively. There are still still many that are just not quite there yet in regards to using this social media platform correctly and for their best results.

I want to give you some do's and dont's and help you get the most out of this fantastic tool.

Facebook can be a real asset for your Nail Salon business. You can connect with your clients easily and for free, you can connect with new clients and you can also use it to advertise available booking times, weekly specials or new services. If you are new to Facebook as a marketing tool, here are some points to remember when setting up your Nail Salon business page:

  • The name is important and ideally should be the name of your salon! However, try not to make it too long (with added extras apart from the salon name) as it gets hard to remember.
  • When you are filling in your information section, write as much as you can about your salon, the services you provide, anything you specialize in and maybe even some words from happy clients?
  • Make the access to your salon information easy, for instance your contact details, appointment times, email and address are important elements
  • Include a tab for salon services / menu. Some people add this to the information area which is OK also but I think a whole tab (page) for the prices / services looks better
  • Include lots of photos of the work you do specifically the unique services you provide.
  • Have your salon logo on the page to match all of your other advertising material for eg if you have a website too. If you can not get the logo to fit in the banner / side area you will have to change the size either by doing that yourself or getting professional help with that. (Should not cost a lot and there are many services / companies that do Facebook branding now. Look around though as some are still a little over the top price wise)
  • As soon as you have 25 likes on your page, get your Vanity URL. This allows you to have an address for use on other marketing for instance your website and advertising materials such as fliers and business cards. An address with – facebook.com/your salon- name looks a lot better than the long one with numbers etc that you see before you get the url!

I would also like to give you some points here on what not to do / say and what would be advantageous to do / say !

DO

1. Interact with your clients and friends positively.

2. Advertise specials

3. Advertise vacant appointment times

4. Advertise new services / products to your nail salon

5. Show images of nail designs, nail art and results your clients have received at your nail salon

6. Survey / ask questions of your clients as to what they would like to see introduced to your nail salon or what they find the best thing is about the salon etc.

7. Show a human side and let your personality shine through to all who see. Your clients already know you to be the wonderful person you are but new clients need to see and feel that energy through the page.

8. Add some interest with advice on nailcare or tips on how to with the other services you provide.

DO NOT

1. Use your business page as a venting ground! If you want to complain about clients being late / not showing up / nastiness / gossip / hassles at home etc etc, please do it either on your personal page or private message another nail tech for support and understanding! I totally know how it feels by the end of some days after 10 – 12 hours in the salon! If you want to let some emotion loose, do yourself a huge favor and dont do it on your business page!

2. Discuss too much about personal life and people etc. Do discuss events that have been special and have been great at the weekend etc because that will make you more human and your clients will join in on the joy and positivity!

3. Set up the page and forget about it. You need to be on there for at least 30 minutes once or twice a week to comment and make posts. This is a way to connect with more people who are your ideal clients and for many, this is the way they will find out about you.

4. Get involved with any negativity or bad mouthing etc that other people may begin in a comment thread. If it is bad, delete the post. If you add fuel to the fire sometimes things get worse. If someone is adjusting you through your business page, call them or email them to sort it out.

Your Nail Salon business needs many different marketing strategies , many of which I cover in the Gloss System Home Study Course. This is just one of them and if used correctly can be a major contributor of new clients to your salon.

I hope this has given you some fresh ideas and if you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you!

Discover Hesperidin: Super Bioflavonoid Nutrient

All about Hesperidin

What is Hesperidin?

Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid. Bioflavonoids are water-soluble nutrients that are found in some fruits – especially citrus – and various leafy green vegetables.

Other well known bioflavonoids include quercitin and rutin.

Benefits

Hesperidin, along with other bioflavanoids, can improve
the health of capillaries and connective tissues. Because of this, it has been noted to help with bruising, varicose veins, and fragile capillaries.

Other benefits include a purported ablility to alleviate hay fever and other such allergies. Some studies suggest bioflavanoids like hesperidin and quercitin do this by inhibiting the release of histamine.

Hesperidin is an important nutrient that works synergistically with Vitamin C to maintain the health of collagen. Sagging and wrinkling of the skin is the consequence of the breakdown of collagen.

Precautions

Because it is not considered an essential nutrient, there is no RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) set.

Various studies have indicated that there does not seem to be an issue of toxicity.

As for dosage amount, we would generally suggest refraining from using mega-doses – 500 mgs or above.

A dose of between 10 mgs and 100 mgs seems much more reasonable.

Hesperidin works synergistically with Vitamin C, as mentioned above, to maintain the health of collagen, and the health enzyme bromelain (derived from pineapples) enhances its absorption. Therefore, all 3 nutrient should be taken together for maximum efficiency. In addition, it is desirable to take it with other prominent bioflavonoids, quercitin and rutin to achieve maximum impact.

Just make sure that the product you purchase is manufactured to pharmaceutical GMP standards, which is the industry gold standard.

DIY Remedies For Ovarian Cysts That Are Proven to Work

As you know most ovarian cysts are benign or non cancerous, but it does not mean that they are not extremely uncomfortable and cause severe amounts of pain. Many women can even suffer from recurring cysts which are not only stressful, but really painful and difficult to treat. The traditional methods of treatment include medications such as birth control pills and invasive surgery. And then of course there are the natural remedies for ovarian cysts.

Hopefully you are one of those people that are only interested in a natural remedy that will prevent and cure them for good, and not just a short term fix. So in that respect i would opt out of surgery which is not the best option for those that are looking for long term relief. Remember surgery will only take care of the cysts that are there already, there is no prevention with this type of treatment.

As with surgery medications such as birth control pills are prescribed to women that have ovarian cysts, but again this is not a good long term solution. These pills contain both male and female hormones, and all they will do is prevent an egg from being released every month. So in essence, it's just a deferment and not a cure.

You have probably guessed by now that natural remedies are the most productive in terms of a cure, and most specifically DIY remedies for ovarian cysts. By that I mean, using basic found at home, in the kitchen ingredients. And with that in mind, the very first thing you can try is a herbal drink, like tea for instance. This is especially good for soothing the stress levels. Follow that by increasing your water and fiber intake, and by basically living a more healthy lifestyle.

By following the natural approach this will lead to the best way to get long term relief. And by taking your overall health and well being more seriously you will achieve the best results. Natural remedies for ovarian cysts are the only realistic treatment option available if you are looking for proven and permanent results.

Bacterial vs Viral STD's – A Life Altering Difference

Less than half of all adults 18 to 44 years of age in the United States have been tested for a sexually transmitted disease other than HIV. However, an estimated 15 million people world wide became infected with one or more sexually transmitted diseases (STD) each year. In the US alone, more than 65 million people are currently living with an STD and roughly half of them have contracted an incurable lifelong STD such as herpes.

Most sexually transmitted diseases fall into one of two categories – Viral infections and bacterial infections. Bacterial infections, such as gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia are curable with antibiotics. STDs caused by viruses such as human immunodeficiency virus (HPV), herpes and hepatitis B are not curable.

As far as bacterial STD's, Chlamydia is by far the most common among women; most likely because it is very contagious and difficult to detect. In fact, an estimated 75 percent of women and 50 percent of men with chlamydia have no symptoms. All sexually active women should ask to be tested with each Pap smear, because untreated, chlamydia can cause infertility or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). An estimated 2.8 million Americans are infected with chlamydia each year. Luckily, chlamydia, as well as gonorrhea and syphilis, can be cured with antibiotics.

In 2002, 351,852 cases of gonorrhea were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the United States, approximately 75 percent of all reported cases of gonorrhea are found in people aged 15 to 29 years. The highest rates of infection are usually found in 15 to 19-year old women and 20 to 24-year-old men.

Once liable for devastating epidemics, the rate of primary and secondary syphilis in the United States actually declined from 1990 to 2000 by 89.2 percent. However, there was still a reported 5,979 cases of syphilis in 2000 and 6,103 in 2001 so syphilis is still out there infecting people.

Of all the non-curable viral STD's our there, HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, is probably the most feared; and for good reason. There were nearly 45,000 New AIDS cases reported in the US in 2004 and a cumulative total of over 500,000 people have died from HIV / AIDs in the US alone since the disease was first diagnosed. Currently over 400,000 people in the US are living with HIV / AIDs right now. That means about 1 out of every 700 US citizens has contracted HIV / AIDs.

Genital Herpes, while not a potential death sentence like HIV / AIDS, is however much more prolific. Some estimates suggest that as many as 1 in 5 people may carry some form of the herpes virus in their body. That is a staggering figure. Forms of the herpes virus include cold sores, genital herpes, chickenpox, mononucleosis and shingles. Medical treatment can, however, alleviate the symptoms of viral STDs such as herpes and in some cases eliminate symptoms without actually eliminating the herpes virus itself. About one million people became infected with Herpes each year in the US, and an estimated 45 million are currently infected with the herpes virus. An estimated 75 percent of the reproductive-age population has been infected with sexually transmitted HPV. Genital warts are caused by HPV, and can lead to cervical and bladder cancers. There's no cure, but there is treatment.

Hepatitis B is the only STD out there that you can get a vaccine for. See your doctor if you're not sure if you've been vaccinated. Hepatitis B is a nasty STD that can cause liver failure and death.

Natural Anxiety Remedy – Benefits and Risks of Kava Kava

Although more and more people are turning to newer natural methods for treating anxiety, herbal remedies are still widely used by panic and anxiety sufferers. Here are some of the benefits and risks of using Kava Kava as a natural anxiety remedy.

What is Kava Kava?

Kava Kava is a member of the pepper family and grows as a tall shrub in the islands of the South Pacific. It is considered a sacred plant by many of the traditional Polynesian cultures and has been used in prayer and ritual as well as for a wide variety of ailments ranging from asthma and rheumatism to weary muscles and sleeplessness. The main active components (kavalactones) are found in the root of the plant. Kavalactones are thought to affect levels of neurotransmitters in the blood which can affect the body's fight-or-flight response. While Kava root was traditionally chewed or made into a beverage, it is now primarily taken as a natural anxiety remedy in capsule, tablet, beverage, tea and liquid extract forms.

Benefits

Kava Kava has become a popular natural anxiety remedy due to its ability to induce a state of relaxation without impairing mental functioning, memory or alertness. It also does not produce tolerance or dependence unlike many anxiety medicines such as Xanax and Valium. Clinical trials have shown Kava root to be as effective as many popular anxiety remedies. In addition, Kava root has been shown to improve mood, well-being, and drive and even improve mental functions.

Risks

Side effects reported include indigestion, mouth numbness, skin rash, headache, drowsiness and visual disturbances. Some reports have even linked Kava Kava use to liver toxicity including hepatitis, cirrhosis, and liver failure. However, no clinical trials have found any evidence of liver toxicity suggesting that these instances were a result of preexisting liver disease, alcohol consumption, taking excess doses, or combining with other herbs and medicines to create a toxic effect. Kava root may lower blood pressure and injury blood clotting, so it should not be taken within two weeks of surgery or used by people with bleeding disorders. Because of its effect on neurotransmitters, Kava Kava should not have been taken with anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications without under the supervision of a physician.

Bat Poison – Not a Good Idea

Bat poison might seem like a good plan to get rid of bats. It works for insects and mice, so why not bats? Well, for starters, bat poison and using pesticides against bats is illegal. Breaking the law to solve your bat problems is probably not a good idea. Aside from that, it can create a higher chance that they will get into your living space and come in contact with your family, which increases the danger to your family when it comes to having bats in the house. All in all, poison does not seem to be a good answer to bat removal.

If not bat poison, then what can get rid of bats? The best option for bat removal is to call a professional pest control company or wildlife specialist that deals specifically with bats. They will be able to inspect your home, find the problems, and figure out how the bats are getting in and out. Then, they will seal up any entry points with the exception of one or two and install bat control devices in those last openings. The control devices provide a means for the bats to exit the home, but do not allow them to get back in when they return. Defeated, they will return to the wild to find a new place to nest.

Once all the bats are thought to be out of your home, another inspection will ensure that they are actually gone. Then, the professional service will seal all of the holes that still exist, keeping the bats out for good. Most services will offer a guarantee with their bat removal process that usually lasts for two to three years. That way, you can trust that the bats are out of your home and that they will not come back. However, after a few years, it's likely that age and wear could create new problems in your home, which is why you should keep up on the maintenance. Watch for any cracks or gaps that are even inch inch big, because that's all the space that bats need to get into your attic.

Bat poison is not an effective solution for bat control. It is much better and more highly recommended to humanely release them back to the outdoors and then seal up your home to keep them out for good. If you ever considered buying bat poison to get rid of bats, you can now understand why there are better ways to do things. Even if you do not poison them only because it's illegal, at least you are doing the right thing by releasing the bats back into the wild.

Treatment and Diagnosis of Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing cardiovascular disease is becoming more sophisticated. Diagnosis begins with a medical examination and patient history. This procedure may be supplemented with a variety of tests that may confirm or refute the physician's suspensions of the presence of cardiovascular disease. Exercise stress tests using a motor driven treadmill with the patient hooked to an ECG have gained popularity in the last 10 years or so. It is a noninvasive test using surface electrodes on the chest that are sensitive to the electrical actions of the heart. Mechanical anomalies of the heart produce abnormal electrical impulses that are displayed on the ECG strip. These are read and interpreted by the doctors.

The treadmill "road tests" the heart as it works progressively harder to meet the increasing oxygen requirement as the exercise protocol becomes more physically demanding. This test is more accurate for men than women. The gender difference in response to the treadmill test is not fully understood, but it is believed that women's breasts and extra fat tissue interfere with the reception of electrical impulses by the chest electrodes.

In some cases a thallium treadmill test is required because it is more sensitive; however, it is also much more expensive. This involves the injection of radioactive thallium during the final minute of the tread mill test. Thallium is accepted, or taken up, by normal heart muscle but not by is chemic heart muscle. The absorption or nonabsorption of thallium can be seen on a television monitor. The thallium stress test increases diagnoses susceptibility to cardiovascular disease to approximately 90%.

Echocardiography is a safe, noninvasive technique that uses sound waves to determine the size of the heart, the thickness of the walls, and the function of its valves. Cardiac catheterization is an invasive technique in which a slender tube is threaded from a blood vessel in an arm or leg into the coronary arteries. A liquid contrast dye that can be seen on x-ray film is injected into the coronary arteries. X-ray films are taken through the procedure to locate where and how severely the coronary arteries are narrowed.
Medical Treatment

A variety of drugs have been developed that lower blood pressure and cholesterol, minimize the likelihood of blood clotting, and dissolve clots during a heart attack. Even aspirin sees to playa significant role in preventing a second heart attack or an initial heart attack. The more aspirin is studied, the better it appears to be.

Surgical techniques have also affected the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Coronary artery by pass surgery is designed to shunt blood around an area of ​​blockage by removing a leg vein and sewing one end of a leg vein into the aorta and the other end into a coronary artery below the blockage, thereby restoring blood flow to the heart muscle.

The internal mammary arteries are also used for bypass grafts. In fact, many permissions consider these to be the ideal grafts. There are two internal mammary arms, but the one in the left side of the chest is preferred because it is closer to the coronary arteries. Many surgeons would rather not use both arteries in the same patient because the flow of blood to the chest impairs healing of the surgical wound. Also, fashioning bypass grafts out of these arteries is time consuming precision surgery, and there are only two of them and they do not reach all parts of the heart. The advantage is that 95% of them remain open 10 years after surgery.

Balloon angioplasty uses a catheter with a shaped shaped balloon at the tip. The catheter is positioned at the narrow point in the artery, and the balloon is inflated, which cracks and compresses the plaque, stretches the artery wall, and widens the blood vessel to allow greater blood flow. Laser angioplasty uses heat to burn away plaque if the catheter can be maneuvered into the correct position. This technology appears to be useful for patients with certain types of atherosclerotic narrowings or blockages. Coronary artherectomy, one of the newest techniques, uses a specially tipped catheter fitted with a high speed rotary cutting blade to shave off plaque.

Catheterization techniques are also used to implant a coronary stent in a diseased artery. The stent is a flexible, metallic tube that functions like a scaffold to support the walls of diseased arteries, thus maintaining an open passage for blood flow. Stents are positioned in such arteries by a catheter with a deflated balloon inside the stent. When correctly positioned, the balloon is inflated, causing the stent to expand. This action stretches the artery. Then the balloon is withdrawn, leaving the expanded stent behind to keep the blood vessel open.

This technique shows much promise, but there is a major limitation associated with the procedure: it increases the risk of blood clots forming at the site of the stent. To counteract this, patients are given blood thinning medications for 2 to 3 months following their implantation, and then they are maintained on aspirin thereafter.

Artificial valves have been developed to replace defective heart valves, and these work quite well. On the other hand, artificial (mechanical) hearts have not performed to expectation because modern technology has not produced a surface smooth enough to simulate the natural interior of the human heart. Blood clotting continues to occur at the valves in these devices. However, mechanical assist devices have been successfully used to aid a failing heart while the patient awaits a heart for transplantation.

Heart transplants have prolonged many lives. The outlook for patients has improved considering due to the development and use of cyclosporine, an antirejection drug. The 5 year survival rate is up to 72%.

Candidates for transplants are those whose hearts are irreversibly damaged with disease that does not respond to conventional treatment. Without a new heart, these people will die. In 1968, 23 heart transplants were performed, in 1993, 2298 were performed. The major problems associated with heart transplantation involve too few donors, procurement of a compatible donor heart, and the constant battle against organ rejection by the recipient.
