According to statistics, about 50 % of American citizens use some type of artificial vision at one point of their life. These can either be in the form of eyeglasses or contact lenses. These artificial methods are not permanent for eye improvement.

They are only meant to help your eye for some time and offer relief. So let nobody trick you that the eye glasses and contact lenses will never and can never restore your vision or repair any defects as a result of eye-related complications. They are only made to treat the symptoms that have deteriorated your vision and not to treat any eye problems.

The problem with the use of corrective lenses is overdependency. They make your eyes unable to function properly on their own without a corrective lens. This will make the eyes somehow weaker and unable to repair themselves. To prevent this, make sure you train your eyes to become relaxed by reducing any eye strain. This will reduce your dependency on the corrective lenses.

Why and how Quantum Vision works

Multiple studies have shown that mental stress and eye strain are the main causes of vision damage. To prevent or reverse these two conditions, you need to avoid putting too much strain on your eyes. Training your eyes to avoid straining may be hard at first but becomes easier as you proceed. This is why you need to devise ways of reducing your eyestrain levels.

There are many things that affect your vision. These factors determine how well your vision is. These factors may include the weather, your mental capacity, stress and other outside influences. All these factors will determine the quality of our vision under different conditions.

These factors cause your eyes to undergo changes from time to time. This is what makes your eye very different from the other parts of your body. This is what makes it difficult to look for an appropriate prescription for any eye problems, especially corrective lenses.

Basic Information About Hair Loss

200285526-002

200285526-002Do you believe that you are the only person in the world who has ever lost their hair? You are most certainly not! Androgenic alopecia, which is the most common type of hair loss, affects more than 50% of all men. It is also a problem for 20-40% of the entire female population. You are far from alone. In fact, you are in the majority.

Androgenic alopecia is caused when hair follicles (where hair grows from) start to decrease in size and the hair growth phase is significantly reduced. This means one simple thing: More of the hair follicles will come to a state of rest before being shed. The good thing is that this condition does not affect all of the hair follicles at once. This is the reason that some places on the scalp seem to have more hair than others.

What Is The Cause For Androgenic Alopecia? As boys age, their hair follicles come in contact with androgen, which is a hormone that controls the physical appearance and development of masculine features. Once this happens, they become sensitive to the androgen and lay a path for androgenic alopecia to become a problem later in life. Prevent hair follicles from coming in contact with androgens will stop this condition from every becoming a problem. Grow new hair with the rebuild hair program.

To offer a few more details about how this works, there are two types of androgen; testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). An enzyme that is known as 5-alpha-reducer is what turns testosterone into DHT. Once this is formed, it can become bound to any androgen receptors that are in the hair follicles. This will decrease the activity of the follicle, the hair growth cycle will stop, the hair shaft will decrease in diameter and as time moves on, hair will stop growing altogether.

Females experience things very similar to the way that males do. Androgen in women stems from the combined activity of the adrenal glands and ovaries. Hair loss in females is sometimes related to other factors, including pregnancy and menopause.

Levels of Vitamin B-12 Tied To Bone Fractures in Older Men

o-MEN-VITAMINS-facebookOlder men who have minimal amounts of Vitamin B-12 face increased risk to have bone fractures as suggested by a study. Researchers have measured the levels of Vitamin B-12 in a sample of 1000 men in Sweden with ages averaging at 75. They found out that the participants that had low levels of the vitamin were more likely to suffer a fracture as compared to those with normal levels of the vitamin.

The men in the group with the lowest B-12 levels were 70 percent more likely to suffer a fracture than all the others in the study. This decrease was mainly because of fractures on the spine where there existed an up to a 120 percent increase in chance of fractures.
The higher risks still remains when you take other risk factors leading to fractures into consideration. These risks include age, bone mineral density, physical activity, previous fractures, smoking and even the content of Vitamin D in the blood together with your intake of calcium.
It, however, is unknown whether consuming more vitamin B-12 which can be found in fish, eggs and poultry may be used to decrease chance of fractures in old men. If you are willing to make stronger your bones and prevent future fractures, you can opt to engage in physical activity about half an hour each day and quitting any habits that may adversely affect your health.
Even though the study has tied little vitamin B-12 amounts in a body to a greater risk of older men getting fractured bones, it has not established a cause and effect relationship. This study has been published online in the journal Osteoporosis International. It is a vital part of an international research project that was initiated by the National Institute of Health in U.S. that includes over eleven thousand men.

Kidney Stones: Causes, Symptoms And Treatment

inflamed-sie_REV_web_105987101

inflamed-sie_REV_web_105987101What ís a kidney stone? A kidney stone is small pebble-like formation that is brought about by minerals and salts found in the urine sticking together. These pebbles usually vary in size and may be as small as a sand grain or as big as a golf ball. These stones may either stay in your kidney or could travel out of the body via the urinary tract- the system that is responsible for making urine and carrying it out of the body. The urinary tract is made up of: the ureters, which are tubes that connect your kidneys to your bladder; the urethra, which is the tube that leads urine from the bladder and out of your body; the kidneys themselves; and the bladder.When a kidney stones passes through a ureter it may or may not cause pain. In the event it does, the accompanying symptoms and pain could excruciating.

How are kidney stones formed?

Kidney stones are formed when there is a change in the normal balancing of water, minerals, salts and other substances found in our urine. The greatest cause of kidney stones is when one does not drink enough water. It is important that you drink lots of water; enough to turn your urine light yellow or clear just like water. The recommended amount is about 8-10 glasses every day. However, there are people who are likely to ail from kidney stones because of underlying medical conditions like gout.

At the same time, this condition could be inherited. If there are people in your family who have suffered this disease, then there is a high likelihood that you may too.

Symptoms

Often, kidney stones cause no pain while still in the kidney. However, they could cause sudden and excruciating pain as they start making their way from your kidneys to your bladder. It is important that you consult with your doctor if you think or feel like you have kidney stones. Keep an eye out for severe pain in your belly, groin or side. Also, be keen on the color of your urine when passing it out. If it looks red or pink then it may be a sign that somethingís wrong. You also may feel nauseated.

How are they diagnosed?

You may get to know that you are suffering from this condition when you first consult with your doctor or visit the emergency room with agonizing pain in your side or belly. The doctor may ask you questions about the pain you are feeling and your lifestyle. He/she will then examine you and may go ahead and do a couple of imaging tests like ultrasound or a CT scan in order to have a look at the condition of your urinary tract and kidneys.

In the event that you have more than one kidney stone or your family as a history with these stones, then more tests will have to be done. In order to find out the main cause of your kidney stones, the doctor may request for a blood test and may ask you to collect urine for 24 hours. This will make it easier for your doctor to find out whether or not you are likely to grow more stones as time passes by.

These stones may not necessarily have to painful. If, in your case, there is no pain, you may get to learn that you have them as your doctor conducts tests for other diseases.

Treatment

In most cases, your doctor may suggest that you go pass the stones in the comfort of your home. However, you may need to have pain medication by your side. You will be required to drink lots of water plus other fluids; this is important to ensure that you stay well hydrated. Often, the doctor will give you medicine that will help speed up the passing of these stones.

However, if one of the stones is too big to pass all on its own, or in the event it gets stuck in one of your urinary tracts, there will be need for more treatment. About 2 of every 10 kidney stone cases usually require specialized treatment.

For such a case, the most commonly used treatment option is ESWL or Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy. Under this option, shock waves are used to break down the stones into smaller pieces. This way, they can be passed out naturally through the urine. In other cases, the doctor will have to remove them or will place a small tube known as a stent in the ureter to ensure that it stays open while the stones pass.

Ways Of Preventing Kidney Stones

Once you have had kidney stones, it is very likely that you may have them again. To keep this from happening again, drink lots of water daily. Take enough water (8-10 glasses every day) that your urine turns clear or light yellow. You may or will have to avoid certain foods or eat them less. Once you have been treated, it is likely that your doctor will or may give you medication to help prevent them from forming again.

Introducing The Pain Free Flu Vaccine

girl_shot

girl_shotIf your main reason for skipping a flu shot is a fear of needles, there is good news for you. Last year the FDA approved a new vaccine technology that does away with the long needle and the sore arm.

One of the two technologies that have been approved for use with the influenza vaccine is called Fluzone. How Does It Work?
The technology works by forcing the vaccine through the skin using tiny microneedles that puncture the skin very slightly. The technology is Fluzone is manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur Inc. and as pediatrician, Erin Giudice, MD from the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital explains, it is not completely free of pain. However, the spokesman for the product, actor, Chris O’Donnell (who has suffered from a lifelong fear of needles) say that it is virtually painless. He explains that the sensation is literally just a little prick on the arm and that you almost do not realize it’s been done.

According to FDA clinical trials, although it causes less pain, there may be more irritation at the site of the injection because it injects at the skin surface rather than the muscle. Fluzone is currently only approved for use in adults; however, the FDA is now conducting clinical trials in under-18s. It is available nationwide and you can find out where you can receive the injections in your area by visiting the company’s website and entering your ZIP code.

Along with FluMist, Fluzone is one of the only pain free influenza vaccine technologies available. Having said that, according to Giudice, additional topical and oral vaccines have been approved for immunization against rotovirus and other diseases.

FluMist is a nose spray that is administered in a single dose. It has been approved for children as well as adults, but the FDA has warned that people with asthma and children who suffer from recurring wheezing may have problems with wheezing following inhalation of the vaccine. Having been on the market since 2003, FluMist is available for the 2014-2015 dose of the flu vaccine.

For those who are concerned about whether these painless alternatives will be as effective as the original vaccine option, according to Giudice there is no need for concern.

She explains that since the flu infects a person through the nose and mouth, when the nasal passages are squirted with the vaccine, it simulates the virus without causing the symptoms; and this helps the body fight off the infection.

Giudice stresses that whether you choose to receive your annual flu shot through an injection or through the nose spray option, the most important thing is to get one. The American Academy of Pediatrics updated its guidelines in order to urge the parents of all children over 6 months to have them vaccinated. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that as soon as this year’s dose is available, all healthy adults get vaccinated.

How To Maintain Proper Personal Hygiene

Woman Resting in Bath

Woman Resting in BathThere can be no doubt about it: sound personal hygiene practices are vital to staying healthy. Observing good hygiene on a daily basis, including hand washing and daily brushing and flossing can ensure that you do not fall victim to viruses, bacteria and other causes of serious illness. In addition, taking care to follow proper hygiene practices is a great way to keep your overall mental and physical health going strong. Experts agree that heeding hygiene advice on a consistent basis works wonders for your self esteem, which in turn benefits your emotional wellness. Those who fail to do so tend to be characterized by their unpleasant body odor, foul breath, messy hair and bad teeth, all things which attract the negative judgment of others.

Good Grooming As Part Of Your Personal Hygiene Routine

To boost your health and keep the risk of illness and infection low, keep the following tips in mind:

Take baths often. Make certain to clean your hair and body frequently, largely because you are constantly shedding skin cells, and they need to be washed away with regularity to prevent buildup known for harboring infections.

Keep your nails trimmed. By maintaining your fingernails and toenails, you will stand a much stronger chance of avoiding infections of the nail bed, painful hangnails and athlete’s foot.

Make brushing and flossing a priority. While it is often recommended that you brush following each of your daily meals, you should at the very least try to brush and floss twice every day. The process of brushing works to reduce bacteria accumulations in the mouth which could produce gum disease and tooth decay. Flossing is also critical to gum health and also helps prevent bacterial buildup that can damage the heart if allowed to proliferate unchecked. Gum disease also causes a loosening of the teeth, making eating harder and harder. Regular dental visits complete with cleanings and exams should round out your oral hygiene routine.

Hand washing is essential. Always make certain to wash your hands prior to eating or handling food, following bathroom visits, after you sneeze or cough and whenever you touch garbage. Doing so helps prevent hazardous viruses and bacteria from spreading. Consider having alcohol-based hand sanitizer in close proximity for situations in which soap and water cannot be accessed.

Never fail to get enough sleep. Making sure to sleep for 8-10 hours every night is an optimal way to feel constantly energized and refreshed. Sleep deprivation is notorious for producing feelings of sluggishness and susceptibility to illness. Getting sufficient rest helps your immune system do its job efficiently and effectively.

What Poor Personal Hygiene Can Say About You

If you have a friend, acquaintance or family member who seems to be neglecting basic personal hygiene, it may be that they are facing deeper issues including depression. It may be helpful to take such a person aside and initiate a discussion about hygiene habits and perhaps even offer them some basic hygiene products. Try to strike the delicate balance between sounding the alarm about the warning signs you are seeing and exhibiting sensitivity for their troubles. Ultimately, it may be that the particular individual at issue really needs professional assistance with their issues, and you can play an important role by encouraging them to seek it.

Remind Others How Hygiene Can Keep Them In Top Condition

The majority of individuals are so accustomed to following sound personal hygiene routines that they hardly give any thought to the daily process of bathing, tooth brushing and routine scheduling of appointments with medical and dental professionals. However, there are always a few individuals for whom strong personal hygiene habits do not necessarily come naturally and who can always use a friendly reminder about the tremendous benefits of establishing and maintaining proper hygiene practices.
