    • Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

      premature ejaculation No Comments »

      For centuries, humans have known the importance of a healthy mouth and healthy gums. However, in light of recent findings showing a link between periodontal disease and your overall health, it is more important than ever to take good care of your mouth. Research shows that periodontal disease is associated with many for serious medical conditions such as heart disease, pulmonary disease and other systemic problems. Pregnant women with the disease are at a higher risk for miscarriage and premature birth complications.

      Periodontal disease starts with the formation of plaque, which can harden into tartar. Tartar harbors bacteria, and makes removing the bacteria with a toothbrush nearly impossible. As the bacteria grow and multiply, certain pathogenic bacteria emerge and make periodontal disease more likely. Periodontal disease can begin with a mild bacterial infection that festers between the gum and the roots of your teeth. This stage, called gingivitis, it is often painless. Signs of gingivitis include redness, swollen gums, and occasional pain. If left untreated, it can lead to periodontitis which involves destruction of the underlying bone. Severe periodontal disease results in tooth loss and a wide range of overall health problems. Advanced signs of the disease include bad breath, red and swollen gums, bleeding gums, pain when choosing, sensitive teeth and tooth loss.

      In periodontitis, the infection forces the gums to pull away from the teeth, forming “pockets” that harbor infection. Bacterial toxins will break down soft tissues. Your immune system battles the bacteria with enzymes that also break down the bone and connective tissue that hold your teeth in place. Eventually, the connective tissue is destroyed leading to tooth loss.

      Periodontal treatment involves removing the bacteria and restoring the mouth to a state of health. A periodontist is a dentist that specializes in gum disease. Procedures are intended to remove the bacteria below the gum line and prevent further soft-tissue damage. Extreme cases of periodontal disease may require surgery. Sometimes, the bone and gum tissues which have been destroyed by the disease can be grafted to regenerate the lost tissue. If there is loss of teeth, dental implants should be considered.

      Although we don’t yet fully understand the exact link between periodontal disease and other systemic health conditions, we know that infection in your mouth leads to an altered immune response. Bacterial present in the mouth can enter the bloodstream, and cause damage to the lining in the arteries. Further studies are ongoing to help clarify the exact relationship between these important conditions. Meanwhile, excellent oral health is prudent to help ensure your body is as healthy as possible.

      To keep your mouth and your body health, see your dentist every three to six months for a routine cleaning and check-up. In addition, brush twice a day, floss and use an antiseptic mouth rinse. Because periodontal disease is also linked to tobacco use and poor diet, you should be careful to eat healthy foods and avoid smoking. By maintaining excellent oral health, and healthy habits, you increase the chances of living a long, healthy life.

    • Dynamics of Addiction and Recovery – Regaining Trust in Early Recovery

      premature ejaculation No Comments »

      A common question that I hear from people at the beginning of recovery from addiction is about how to get their loved ones to trust them again. This is often a premature question, when the newly abstinent person is in the very early stages of change. They often want credit from family members about their “intentions” toward recovery. They may want to be recognized and rewarded for being willing to quit drinking and using at day two or three of abstinence. They may forget that they have repeatedly made it several days in a row without drinking or using before relapsing once again.

      The newly recovering person often wants family members to accept at face value that they are done with drinking and using for good. They may be telling the partner or family members that they are willing to go to 12 step meetings, but one thing after another has gotten in the way of actually attending those meetings. From the addict’s point of view, the willingness and the intention of doing so should be accepted and regarded as evidence that the alcoholic is “in recovery”.

      Alcoholics may feel insulted when it is suggested that for family members to believe that they have changed, that they actually must change. Words are not enough. Family members have been through promises and declarations of “quitting for good” for years. These verbalizations do not mean anything to the family if not followed by behavior change.

      Family members often assert that their addicted loved ones have lied to them about wanting to get sober or by making unfulfilled promises of “giving it up”. People with addiction usually mean it when they make the promises that they will quit, that they will go to meetings, and that they will engage in any form of recovery activities. The addiction gets in the way of the promises to themselves and others. The cravings or urges set in and the defenses mechanisms make it alright to drink or use “just one”, “just one more time”, “only for today”, “only beer”, or “only pot”. And of course, the first one only leads to the rest.

      Addiction is an illness that plays tricks with your thinking. A psychological tug of war between the side that wants to quit and the other side that wants to use is played out in the mind of the addict, as they deal with cravings. Both sides have their arguments to gain supremacy. The battle is ongoing; thoughts are fluid; resolve changes minute by minute.

      The newly recovering person often has difficulty really understanding that family members will regain their trust as the alcoholic regains “trustworthiness”. Behavior, that is dependable, responsible, constant, and predictable, is trustworthy behavior. Trust comes back the same way it was lost-a little at a time. As the addict does what he says he will do (i.e., going to meetings, not drinking one day at a time, getting a sponsor, etc.) family members’ perception of his “trustworthiness” goes up. When he tells the truth instead of lying to avoid conflict, his “trustworthiness” rating goes up some more. This process continues as the trust in the relationship is restored. All the arguing and promising in the world won’t make it happen sooner. In fact, this behavior slows down the process since it is not “recovery behavior”.

      Family members will also be reassured about a loved one’s ongoing abstinence when they observe that the appearance of new living skills. The chemical must be replaced by healthy living skills or the recovering person remains vulnerable to relapse. When the chemical use is removed from the newly sober person’s problem solving skill set, it leaves big gaping holes where something that had a purpose used to be. When the need arises for the role that the chemical played, and healthy replacements have not been found, relapse is a strong possibility. Spouses and parents in early recovery live in fear of their loved one relapsing. They feel less fear when they are able to observe that their loved one now has alternatives to chemicals when he feels uncomfortable feelings, is stressed, or has problems that he is struggling with.

      An example of the need for living skills would be stress. Addicts without stress management skills, in the wake of elevated stress, would want to use a drug to manage that stress because at some point it worked–at least temporarily. Recovering people not practicing good stress management skills would tend to be irritable, anxious, and might employ other diversionary tactics to not feel stressed. Spouses and parents will notice when a loved one is practicing stress management skills because their old behavior associated with stress will be changed. They will see that the alcoholic is changed and is engaged in working a program of recovery.

      “Working a program” is not just about attending meetings. It is about utilizing what you learn in those meetings to effectively manage one’s life. To regain trust in the relationship one must actively work a program of recovery.

    • Diagnosing Pleural Mesothelioma – A Malignant Disease!

      premature ejaculation No Comments »

      Similar with other types of lung cancer, diagnosing pleural mesothelioma is such a complex job for doctors since symptoms do not usually take place for some time after primary asbestos exposure. Furthermore, since the indications of malignant pleural mesothelioma are distinctive to many ailments, in the premature stages of the cancer, the symptoms are frequently mistaken for less aggressive diseases such as pneumonia and influenza.

      Diagnosing pleural mesothelioma is made partially on the origin of the symptoms but additional diagnostic tests are needed to confirm the presence of cancer. If the doctor suspects an asbestos-related disease, the next step for the diagnosis is testing to confirm the presence of this asbestos cancer, verify the location, size and type of the cancer involved, and to know whether the cancer has already spread to the other parts of the body.

      Typical imaging tests involved are the:
      * X- ray – most commonly used imaging test for the diagnosis of mesothelioma.

      * Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan – it is an x-ray like procedure in which numerous x-ray pictures are taken and combined with a computer to create a thorough image of body tissues. When you undergo a CT scan, you may be given an injection of dye, which helps produce more concrete images. It may not only show the effusion but as well as the presence of pleural masses.

      * Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan – this is a highly sensitive scanner that detects the metabolic signal of progressive cancer cells in the body and can help staging the cancer. Glucose solution is being controlled by an intravenous injection. Malignant cells get up and use sugars more quickly than normal cells, so they can be easily noted using the procedure.

      * Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – is a combination of strong magnetic field and radio waves and is much more sensitive in determining chest wall invasion and the multiplication of the disease. It is also used to create detailed three-dimensional images that can be warily examined by a radiologist.

      After diagnosing pleural mesothelioma, your physician will generally recommend an oncologist, a cancer specialist, who is well versed in treating the disease and who will help determine the best alternative for your mesothelioma treatment.

      So do you have the answers to your mesothelioma questions?  Or even how it is transmitted?  If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, do you know your legal rights and are you receiving the best health care possible? To find out these answers and more, go right now to a-mesothelioma-guide.com and see what else you need to know to be as healthy as you can.  After all, doesn’t your family deserve a healthy you!

       
    • Easy Weight Loss That Lasts!

      last longer in bed No Comments »

      Dieting is the process of reducing your food intake and restricting what you eat. It usually is accompanied by an exercise plan that calls for you to perform certain motions for a certain amount of time each day. These tactics do help you lose weight but they do not help you change your life in a way that you will be able to maintain the results.

      We live in a society that wants fast results. We are always on the lookout for a pill, a product, or a surgery that will improve the way we look and feel. We have yet to find that magic pill or product. No matter how many surgeries, pills, creams, or contraptions we try; we are just not able to find it. There is no magic bullet. The answer to our weight loss problems, our skin issues, and all of the other things we find that are wrong with our bodies can be found in a much closer place. It isn’t easy to find, but each of us has it right here in our own minds.

      Instead of riding the fad diet merry-go-round forever, consider the possibility of changing everything you dislike about yourself using only the power of your mind! You can do it! All it takes is creating good habits that you know help you and make you feel healthier and happier. Believe me. It can be done. Eat healthy, act healthy, and think healthy. Once you have done have adopted these habits, your body will balance out to a healthy weight, your skin will clear, and your mind will be calm and at ease.

      Eating healthy is the first step. Reduce the amount of processed and junk foods that you consume until you no longer crave or enjoy them. Think of them as poisons that work against your goal. Eat fresh vegetables and fruits, plenty of water, lean protein, and whole grains. You will feel the difference almost immediately. As you start to feel better increase your activity level. Do things that you enjoy! Hiking, boating, swimming, skiing, walking, skipping, or jumping rope! It does not matter what activity you choose or if you do a different one each day. Just do something and keep on doing things that make you happy.

      Once you created those 2 new habits of eating and acting healthy you can easily add the third. Think healthy. The key is to not let feelings of inadequacy, fear, or sorrows undermine your positive outlook. Continue to do things that make you happy, eat things that make you feel good, and enjoy your life in a joyful way. Use the power of your mind to change the way you live and strive to find the balance that we are all craving as human beings.

    • Hydration – Moisturize to Glow!

      premature ejaculation No Comments »

      Water acts as a healing agent for the body and is required to be replenished constantly. 70% of the human body is made up of water and about 15% of it is stored in the skin. Thus, it is important to moisturize both inside out. Otherwise, your skin will become dry and could result in premature aging. However, there are many misconceptions and mistakes made about the process of staying moisturized.

      Right Those Wrongs!

      Blunder 1: Oily skin indicate as sufficient or over hydration, so i must not use moisturizer or else the skin will become even oilier.

      Truth: On the contrary, oily skin indicates dehydration! When the skin is dehydrated, it secretes oil to fight against dryness. For oil skin complexion, choose oil-free moisturizers.

      Blunder 2: Since dry skin reflects a lack of moisture, i will slap on as much moisturizer as i possibly can to ensure its dampness.

      Truth: Over-moisturizing will cause your skin pores to get clogged, resulting in more skin problems, such as the sprouting of blackheads. Use a serum before applying the moisturizer. Serums have small particles that can enhance the absorption of moisture.

      Blunder 3: My skin is neither dry nor oily, so it must already have enough moisture. I do not need to apply any more moisturizer.

      Truth: A hydrated skin will feel soft and supple, but it will soon dry out due to harmful elements like sunrays and maintained at all times. For normal skin type, apply a good moisturizer on damp skin, 1-2 times daily.

      Blunder 4: Since i have an oily nose, my skin complexion must be oily. Thus, i must use an oil-free moisturizer.

      Truth: Oiliness on the nose and forehead region (T-zone) does not mean you have oily skin. If, with an oily T-zone, your cheeks feel rather dry and flaky instead, what you have is a combination skin type. You ought to choose products in serum or lightweight lotion form that will ensure adequate hydration for the different textures of your skin.

    • Wood Roses Last A Lifetime

      last longer in bed No Comments »

      Wood roses come in a variety of colors and in some cases, have been hand-crafted so well, you might even be fooled into thinking they’re real. The petals on wood roses are usually made from birch with the leaves made from fiber and the stem from bendable wire; this way, you have the ability to arrange the flowers in a number of ways. Wood roses can even be purchased scented (although for those sensitive to fragrances, they can also be purchased unscented).

      Even amateur gardeners dream of having roses in their gardens, but they’re not always so easy to grow. A poor rose specimen for example, will always fall short and ultimately, lead to disappointment. There are a number of things, however, which can be done to enure you have healthy, beautiful rose plants.
      When choosing roses, you should only buy budded plants that have well prepared root stock and are two years old. Planting these specimens in any spot where an unhealthy, previously planted rose was, will stop the new one from developing the way it should, so choose [the spot] carefully.

      The way in which roses are planted also play a large part in how healthy they will be; they need to be in a drought-free, well-drained, and sunny location. The spot should also have good air circulation which means they should not be planted underneath trees and shrubs. The holes in which the rose plant will be placed should be big enough so that it can well accommodate the roots without having to bend or cut them. In addition, enough space should be left in the hole so that fertilizer and compost can also be added.

      Roses need to be watered at least twice a week so the soil they are planted in stays evenly moist; the soil needs to be watered deeply but not often so the surface has a chance to dry out before its watered again. By doing it this way, it will stop fungus from spreading on moist surface and will encourage roots to grow. When moisture in the soil gets trapped around the base of the plant, it leads to rot which ultimately will kill the plant. Also always water roses in the morning so as to help prevent mildew and black spot disease.

      You may wonder why you would even want to purchase wood roses over the real thing but there a number of good reasons; they are less expensive and you can get more for your money; wood roses will never wilt; they can be kept forever and are always in season. And, for the allergy sufferer, wood roses will never aggravate the allergy no matter what time of the year it is.

    • Dog Food Secrets Review – Learn About the Right Food to Feed Your Dog

      premature ejaculation No Comments »

      Dog Food Secrets is a startling new book the illustrates an important reason why our dogs get sick and die much sooner than they should. Andrew Lewis is the author of Dog Food Secrets. His young 4 year old Beagle developed kidney failure, and died a horrible premature death. Andrew began a dedicated study to find out just why dogs like his and so many others could get so sick, even though they were apparently well cared for.

      What he found out was absolutely shocking. The ingredients found in almost all commercial brands of dog foods, even the so called premium brands, had toxic harmful adulterants and fillers that were poisoning our pets on a daily basis.

      Andrew claims that by feeding your dog home made meals, you can prolong your dog’s lifetime by up to 134% or over 8 years-while at the same time, having a happier, healthier and more active dog. He says dog owners can enjoy their pet’s company for many more years by avoiding feeding our pet unhealthy meals. He recommends an alternative to commercial dog food brands that will provide your pet with the right amounts of nutrition he needs to be at his healthiest, happiest and most energetic.

      Almost all commercial dog foods contain things like preservatives that are illegal for human consumption, euthanized animals (including dogs themselves), dog feces, sodium pentobarbital (which is still found in the bodies of euthanized animals added to the mix, along with other unsavory items. Andrew Lewis teaches you how to read the labels of packaged dog food so you can understand exactly what you are-or are not-getting.

      Andrew includes as a bonus another excellent book called The Dog Food Conspiracy Report, which will tell you which 9 products-out of all products tested-passed Andrew’s teams rigorous standards. This is good news for those of us who cannot (or don’t want to) cook our dog’s meals to ensure that they have a healthy nutritious diet.

      Dog Food Secrets offers you 35 different tasty and healthy recipes proven by Andrew’s specially trained dog gourmets to be well received by dogs everywhere. Four Paws Up! He gives you ideas that make the recipes easy to prepare, and tips on how to make a large enough batch to last for several meals at a time. Andrew teaches you that between the cost savings of buying the best dog foods commercially and the health benefits your dog will get, that making your dog’s food at home is the better choice.

      Besides providing the specially formulated healthy recipes, Dog Food Secrets also reveals a specific formula to calculate just how much food your doggy needs. The formula is based on several factors, such as whether your dog is very active or not, whether your dog is pregnant or breast feeding, whether your dog has been neutered, or whether your dog is old or young. All these factors have an influence over just how many calories are needed daily to keep your dog at his healthiest.

      Dog Food Secrets also provides you with information on how to spot any signs of illness in your dog before they get too far progressed. Andrew has included a complete health care program for you to follow, starting with your dog as a puppy and then moving on throughout the stages of his lifetime. This section includes valuable health related information about illnesses such as parasites and gum or dental problems, and a list of 5 important vaccinations your puppy or dog needs to have.

      I very highly recommend checking out Dog Food Secrets. This is a valuable book for anyone who loves their dog and is concerned about providing their pet with the longest and most healthy life possible. You will never look the same way at a bag or can of commercial dog food again.

      I hope you found this article helpful. I have many more free articles with advice for dog obedience training and solving any dog behavior problems you pet may have. Please click here to visit http://www.BehaveDoggy.com.
