Could Too Much Beauty Sleep Put You at Risk of Having a Stroke?

Posted on : 26-02-2015 | By : Nani | In : Watch Yourself

For many individuals, the idea of getting lots of sleep is connected with being in a good mood, having more energy, and even looking more physically attractive. Who doesn’t feel great after getting all of their beauty rest? Most people do not associate getting too much sleep with having a stroke. However, a recent study shows that there may be a connection between these two things according to GlassDoor.

Researchers at the University of Cambridge have conducted a study that has lasted more than nine years. In this study, they found that individuals who get more than eight hours of sleep each night are at greater risk of having a stroke. Also, they found that individuals who sleep for less than six hours have a higher chance of stroke as well. This research does not mean that individuals should try to adjust their sleep patterns. What the researchers want to know is why this link exists. Could it be that the more an individual sleeps or the less they sleep, the more they are at risk for cardiovascular problems?

Individuals who sleep more than eight hours or who sleep less than six hours each night may be concerned about their risk of having a stroke. It would be advisable for them to speak to their physician about their concerns. Also, anything they do to improve their lifestyle, like getting more exercise and eating healthier foods, will contribute to better health.

Your Diet May Not Be as Healthy as You Think

If you are faithful to your diet and exercise routine, but still have difficulty losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight, take another look at your diet. Your diet may be so filled with so-called healthy foods that you are overeating because your brain has been tricked into thinking it’s alright.
It’s not alright. My coworker Gianfrancesco Genoso shared this anfip.com article about So-called healthy foods are often a load of calories wrapped up in a pretty package that will make their final destination around your mid-section.
Fruit juices, protein shakes, low-fat dairy products, vegetable spreads and whole grain food products can lull you into thinking they are a healthier choice, thereby a lower calorie choice and can be eaten in larger quantities than a slice of pie loaded with fat. Depends on how much of the healthy food you are actually eating.
Certainly the reduced fat foods are better for your health than a fried chicken leg, but you can consume more calories mindlessly eating a healthy meal than if you were mindfully indulging in a small portion of a fried chicken meal with all the trimmings.
You are what you eat and low fat, reduced calorie, healthy foods are not always the best choice to satisfy your hunger. To start and maintain a truly healthy diet, select foods with minimal processing. Select real foods instead of healthy foods. Real foods are grown in the land, swim in the water and walk on the land.

Smoking Worse on Health Than Originally Thought

Posted on : 13-02-2015 | By : Nani | In : Profiles in health

By now we’re well aware of the risk of lung cancer caused from smoking. We also are aware of the risk to heart health that smoking cigarettes poses, but these two health issues are just the tip of the iceberg of life-threatening illnesses that are directly related to smoking.

A new study, that has been 10 years in the making, discovered that smoking is worse on health than originally thought reported Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG. The numbers of smoking related deaths used to be under half a million per year, the number has now risen to well over half a million deaths each year. And if 21 different diseases, including various types of cancers, wasn’t enough to blame on smoking, add 5 more debilitating diseases which can be directly linked to smoking for a grand total of 26.
Cigarette smoking is still an epidemic, we just don’t see as much of it due to the public-use bans on the deadly tobacco product. But the statistics don’t lie, we’ve known for the last half century that smoking was not good for a person, now we realize it is worse than we thought.
In addition to lung cancer and heart disease, smoking is directly linked to other heart and lung problems, kidney disease, intestinal problems and increases the risk of infection.

Montana Senate Gives Terminally Ill Patients Some Hope

”Right To Try” Bill Gives Terminally Ill Patients The Right To Ignore FDA Restrictions

Being diagnosed with a life-threating illness, and being forced to use FDA approved drugs that don’t help doesn’t give them much hope. Terminally ill patients often give up mentally because the legal deck is stacked against them. On one hand, we have the most sophisticated medical facilities in the world, and on the other we refuse to allow terminally ill patients to experiment with drugs that may help them.

Jaime Garcia Dias knows that getting new drugs approved by the FDA is a painfully long process. People die every day, but some of them could have lived longer if federal restrictions on experimental drugs and treatments was lifted. The FDA hinders them from using their right to try whatever means available to prolong their lives.

The Montana State Senate did something about that flaw in the system. They passed a right to try bill that allows terminally ill patients to ignore FDA regulations. The bill gives them the right to try drug and treatment options that are banned by the FDA. The principle behind the bill was the main message in the 2013 movie Dallas Buyers Club. In the movie, an AIDS patient smuggles drugs into the country that were not on the FDA’s approved drug list.

Dr. Daniel Amen: Tips For A Healthy Brain

Posted on : 06-02-2015 | By : Nani | In : Exercise, Longevity, Mental health, Nutrition, Profiles in health

You probably remember when I did a quick profile on Dr. Daniel Amen last month. He’s just that interesting. Well, that post was so popular I decided to bring him back, this time with a focus on his tips on nutrition, lifestyle, and how it all can affect the health of your brain.

Having a healthy mind and body is something that everyone wants. According to Dr. Daniel Amen, this is possible through following his program called the “Daniel Plan” to get the vital organ of the brain in shape so the body will follow.

For those not familiar with Amen, he received his medical degree at the Oral Roberts University of Medicine, and has had his practice for more than 30 years. As part of his plan, it’s vital to take care of your brain, as it is one of the most complex organs of the body, using up to 30 percent of the calories, a quarter of the blood supply and 20 percent of the oxygen we all use to live. As part of that plan you must also do several things to ensure it stays healthy, including:

A person should “love” their brain by keeping it healthy through not drinking alcohol, not smoking, limiting stress, getting enough sleep and  eating brain nutritious foods. If the brains stays healthy, the body will also be healthier. Plus, the brain will have more “reserve” to allow it to withstand any future trauma. 

Another of the doctor’s teachings was that in order to protect the brain you have to do common sense things like wear a seatbelt, not hit your head with things like soccer balls, and try to avoid any other head injuries, as well as avoiding situations where you could be subjected to other toxins such as using cleaning chemicals without ventilation. 

One should also be sure to take things like omega 3 vitamins, gingko biloba, safe, and to follow a healthy and nutritious diet at all times, as well as do regular exercise to keep the body and brain healthy.

Amen also warns of the dangers of taking too much pain medication, as things such as Vicodin can damage the brain if they are used long-term, similar to how alcohol damages it. Instead, consider the use of alternative treatments like acupuncture, hypnosis and music therapies.

Another way to protect the brain is to watch for early indications of memory loss that could lead to dementia or Alzheimer’s, as nearly all of the people with Alzheimer’s aren’t diagnosed until they are in late stages of this deadly brain disease. According to Amen, people should get screened every year after they turn 50 by taking simple memory tests to check on their brain’s status.

All in all, by following the doctor’s suggestions, we can all keep our brains and ultimately our bodies, healthy and strong.

Falcons are Cheaters Too

With the now infamous deflate gate case still looming in the air, attention has been called to how other teams around the league operate and it has started to become apparent that most organizations probably attempt to stack the cards in their favor in ways that are stretching the rules or flat out illegal. The Atlanta Falcons are now in the midst of a scandal and it very well could fetch penalties that are just as substantial as the ones being thrown around in regards to the Patriots deflating footballs in the AFC championship game to give themselves a competitive advantage over the Indianapolis Colts. The Falcons have reportedly been adding crowd noise through speakers to increase the noise volume in the Georgia Dome when opposing teams were attempting to huddle and call a play. This is clearly against the rules, as fan presence continues to be a factor in the game. Places like Seattle pride themselves on how loud they are at the games, as tech crunch has shared, and one of their biggest jersey sellers is actually the sixth man. They are very prideful that they are the loudest fans in the game of football and it is clear to everyone that adding noise to an indoor dome is completely unfair. There are talks about the Falcons receiving hefty fines and for them to lose draft picks in the upcoming several seasons. Either way they need to get penalized greatly to stop this cheating debacle.

Health Risks of Shoveling Snow

Posted on : 27-01-2015 | By : Nani | In : Exercise, Watch Yourself

Everyone who lives in a region that receives significant snowfall during the winter knows that snow must be shoveled in order to maintain everyday life. Sergio Andrade Gutierrez of Sternstewart.com knows that the act of shoveling heavy, wet snow is intense physical exercise. That intense exercise from snow shoveling is both good and bad for health.
Physical activity is good for the waistline and for health, but for those who are out-of-shape or at risk for heart disease, the heavy physical labor of shoveling snow is a health risk. Snow shoveling could actually cause a person to have a heart attack, according to Dr. Clyde Yancy, chief of cardiology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, if there is a prior history or other risk factors.
With predicted snow storms this week, many people will find themselves on the business end of a snow shovel. To get the labor-intensive task done without having a heart attack, Dr. Yancy suggests that you exert only 80% of you energy during shoveling and take frequent rest breaks while shoveling. Avoid eating a heavy meal within the hour prior to shoveling as that will put added workload on the heart during an intense bout of physical exertion, such a shoveling snow.

Many have neck and back pain these days, and North American Spine understands this. The company is based out of Dallas, Texas, and they have been helping many with back and neck pain, for over six years now. The company has released an infograph, which shows the effects of bad posture, as well as ways to improve posture. PR Newswire released a report, that North American Spine has put out an infograph which can help one to have better posture. Unfortunately, many are not aware of the bad effects that posture may have on their body, especially when it comes to pain.

Poor posture can cause pain in the body, such as in the neck and back area, it can also cause insomnia, as well as headaches. The infograph released by North American Spine, teaches one to have correct posture, whether they are sitting or standing up. It also states the negative side effects of poor posture, and ways to detect if you have poor posture. If you’re able to correct your posture, you can save yourself a lot of future pain. Many do not even recognize that they have poor posture, and the infograph is a great way to help find this information out.

North American Spine is an excellent company that deals in back and neck pain. Many have gone to their facilities for treatment, including famous stars who are in chronic pain for many years. There have been over 8000 people treated at the North American Spine facilities, and the success rate is over 80%. North American Spine utilizes the AccuraScope procedure, which only uses a small camera that is inserted into the neck or back, allowing the surgeons to determine the cause of the patient’s pain. The procedure is an outpatient procedure, and it’s minimally invasive.

For more information on North American Spine, you can check out my previous post on them.
