It Aint What You Do Its The Way That You

It Aint What You Do Its The Way That You Do It!

Now basically, we all have an idea of how to lose weight, dont we?

So why do we find it so hard? Every single diet on the market no matter how fantastic it is will not work without one vital ingredient, WILL POWER!

Unfortunately that is not something we can purchase from the store, that I am afraid to say, is something that we have to supply ourselves, and without it, every single diet that you attempt will fail.

There are some good diets around, and one diet that suits one person will not strictly suit another. So you may find that you and your best friend are going to start a diet together, you friend may be going great guns and losing pound after pound, but you, are not. Its frustrating, but its a fact of life that we are all made up differently.

Personally I dont recommend diets as such. Once you restrict your calories, your body will think that there is a food shortage, and it will go into starvation mode. Once in starvation mode it will slow down your metabolism to conserve calories.

You see our bodies have been programmed from way back when there was not an abundance of food, we had to hunt our food so our meals were not regular. The metabolism regulated the usage of our calories so that in periods of food shortage, we did not waste away and starve.

Now in this day and age there is always food to hand, but our bodies are not aware of this. When you skip a meal your body will go on starvation alert and slow that metabolism right down, which means next time your eat, your body is going to hang right on to those calories and store as much of them as it can as fat.

So, whats the solution? There has been tons of research and in my opinion the way forward is this. To keep your metabolism ticking over at a regular pace you need to eat regular meals, regular small meals every 2.5 – 3 hours, try to include protein in these meals (meat, preferably lean meat i.e. chicken, turkey, tuna) as protein doesnt shoot your blood sugar right up and plummet it back down as sugary foods would. Keep your daily calories to a guideline level, (check out your ideal consumption online somewhere).

The next part is something that you are not particularly going to like, but, its the only way forward, you need to EXERCISE!!

You need cardio exercise 3-4 times a week for approx 40mins at a time, and very important, you need to do weight training, as the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn. Ladies dont freak out, I am not saying that you need to look like Arnie, but you need muscle tone, and the more you have the more fat you will burn, even while you are sleeping!

Good Luck!

Is a Franchise the Way to Go with your New

Is a Franchise the Way to Go with your New Daycare?

Going into business for yourself is always a big step with a lot of unknowns. And those same risks are just as true when it comes to starting your own day care as they do with any new business. Its hard not to pay attention to the statistics about what a big percentage of new businesses that start each year fail. So you want to do anything you can do to give yourself the advantage to avoid that happening when you open your new day care.

One option that is always available to you is to go with a franchise operation rather than start your own free standing day care under your own name and marketing “label”. For most of us, this is unappealing because when you first got the vision to start and own your own day care, you saw it as a place where the parents would come knowing you would take good care of their little ones. So the idea of opening what might be equivalent to a Blockbuster Video day care operation can seem pretty unappealing.

Like any business decision, there are good points to be made for going the franchise route and points against it as well. A franchise might be a great way to get your start in owning your own business and jumping through all the hoops that it takes to get a day care up and running. There is a lot more to it than just loving the children and since a franchise of a large national organization has the process down to a system of steps, the anxiety and risk factor drops off significantly.

You still get the advantage that it is “your day care” in that when you buy a franchise, it belongs to you. But the corporate ID of the franchise is not yours. There will be rules to follow and a “look” that you will have to conform to in order to be a member in good standing with the franchise operation. The name of your day care center will conform to the franchise naming scheme as will your choice of furniture, interior and exterior decoration and even uniforms. The company that is supporting you in your franchise operation already know what they have found to be successful in the day care business so they will hold you to that standard.

So in that way franchising runs counter to your desire to be free of being an “employee” and having to live up to someone else’s rules and regulations. However, there is another value to some franchise arrangements to take into consideration. You may be able to lock in to the franchise for a limited period of time after which you are free to separate from the franchise and “buy them out” so you can take the day care over entirely.

This is the best of both worlds. You get the security of the expertise and guidance the franchise system can give you during those crucial months as you prepare to open and then finally start you day care business. If the franchise has a good reputation, that may help you establish your customer base. And you can get through those first months and years with their help to reduce the chance that you will be one of those statistics of a failed new business venture.

At the same time you are buying yourself some time to prepare for “going solo” in a year or two. So taking advantage of the franchise option may have some real value for you consider. This is not to say that a franchise day care is how you should launch your own day care business. But it is worth taking into consideration.

GETTING RID OF THOSE WORKPLACE BLUES

These days, supplements abound on the market, all touting the various health benefits that come with taking them regularly. Many people believe the hype and pop these supplements like candy. But as the saying goes, too much of a good thing is bad for you. Apparently, that saying applies to vitamins as well. In fact, the phenomenon of vitamin overdose is surprisingly little known for something that is as pervasive as the fad of taking all sorts of vitamin supplements. Unfortunately, these supplements not as regulated as other medications. Many overdose on vitamins because they don’t understand what it is and the role it plays in the body.

Vitamins are substances found in the plants and animals that your body needs for normal function, growth, and health. The human body cannot manufacture these vitamins, and in some cases cannot store it in huge amounts. Each vitamin has a specific function, and they are involved in many processes that enable your body to use carbohydrates, fats and proteins for energy and repair. They can be classified into two categories: fat-soluble vitamins and water soluble vitamins. Fat-soluble vitamins are absorbed by the body using bile acids, and are stored until they are needed. Among these are vitamins A (retinol), D (calciferol, commonly referred to as the sunshine vitamin), K and E (tocopherol). Water-soluble vitamins are easily absorbed by the body, but it cannot be stored and all excess is quickly flushed out through urine. Among these are vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B12 (cyanocobalamin), C (ascorbic acid), H (biotin), and Folic Acid. If you have low levels of certain vitamins, regardless of whether it is a water-soluble or fat-soluble vitamin, you may develop a deficiency disease. Some of the more familiar vitamin deficiency diseases are rickets (lacking vitamin D), scurvy (lacking in vitamin C), pellagra (lacking in B3 or niacin), and beriberi (lacking in B1 or thiamine).

On the opposite end of the spectrum, multiple vitamin overdose is basically being poisoned by vitamins. This is most commonly observed in patients taking the fat-soluble vitamins A and D, as well as concentrating on a specific B vitamin. Obviously, this occurs when you have too much of a particular vitamin or number of vitamins, and the gravity of the overdose is largely determined from person to person, depending of their age and state of health. As with the overdose of any drug, the imbalance causes unwanted side effects that are potentially life-threatening. The most common symptoms of vitamin overdose are diarrhea, irritability, dehydration, decreased appetite, constipation, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting. These symptoms may disappear if the dosage is reduced.

However, in some cases, the overdose may greatly affect your overall health. For example, if you have a vitamin D overdose, this will cause the calcium levels in your blood to rise to toxic levels, causing damage to soft tissues, bones and kidneys, and possibly cause kidney stones to form. An overdose of vitamin A may cause liver problems, excessive skin dryness or peeling, coarse bone growths and reduced bone mineral density. Pregnant women must be especially careful not to overdose on vitamins because it may cause potentially serious birth defects.

The best way to get vitamins is through consuming nutritious food. To avoid a vitamin overdose, do not take more than the recommended daily dose of supplements. It would be wiser to consult a doctor before taking any vitamin supplement, especially if you are pregnant or suspect you may be pregnant, have a preexisting medical condition or are taking prescription medication regularly. Vitamin overdose is extremely preventable as long as you remember that everything must be take in moderation.

What Are Orthotics?

Orthotics are orthopedic devices that are used to treat a variety of biomechanical foot disorders. Whenever a person’s foot is not functioning as designed, the weight of the body is not properly transferred and distributed. As a result, pain and tenderness can develop in the foot, ankle, and the surrounding muscles. Orthotics work to relieve pain by realigning and supporting the ligaments and bones of the foot properly, so that the foot can function as normal.

Orthotics are can be made of any number of materials and range greatly in terms of price, effectiveness, and ease of availability. Simple orthotics, such as the shoe insoles and gel heel cups sold in general goods stores, are inexpensive and widely available. These over-the-counter orthotics can relieve mild foot discomfort by taking excess pressure off of sensitive areas of the foot. They are relatively ineffective, though, at treating moderate to more severe foot disorders.

The next step-up in orthotics are custom-tailored devices that are specifically designed to meet the needs of the particular individual. Such orthotics usually require a doctor’s prescription since an impression of the foot, called a cast, needs to be made in order to identify those areas of the feet that are out of alignment. The resulting cast is sent to an orthotic laboratory so that a custom device can be produced to correct any misalignments. The orthotic is then fitted to the patient’s shoe to help keep the foot properly aligned.

Since perfectly aligned feet are uncommon, nearly everyone stands to benefit from the use of an orthotic device. Orthotics can rarely cause harm to the foot. Instead they both prevent and alleviate any number of foot disorders that cause pain, fatigue, or discomfort in individuals who are otherwise happy and healthy. The extent to which your foot is maligned will determine the exact type of orthotic best suited for your foot.

How do you know if you may need an orthotic? Consider the following symptoms:

One side of the sole of your shoe typically wears out faster than the other side (the soles of your worn shoes are not flat)

Your feet point inward or outward more than normal when you walk

You have frequent heel, ankle, knee, hip, or lower back pain

You frequently sprain or twist your ankle

You have flat feet or feet with a high arch

Your shins frequently hurt or ache

Your toes are crooked

Your feet generally hurt after you spend more than a few moments standing on them

If you have one or more of these symptoms, you may be a good candidate for an orthotic device. Keep in mind that pain is your body’s way is signaling you that something is wrong. Sore feet are no exception to this rule. Ignoring pain can intensify problems and lead into much more serious disorders, so it is important to find the underlying cause for your foot pain. Contact your local podiatrist to set up an appointment for an initial exam and find out if orthotics are right for you.

Schizophrenia: The Voices Within

All of us, somehow, have experienced hearing something only to discover nothing when we turn our heads. But not all of us experience hearing voices inside our minds that tell us to do something which turn us into monsters of sorts. Yet, it is unfortunate that there are people who go through life with such hallucinations. These are the people who are suffering from psychological disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder which makes people hear voices not heard by other people or they may believe that others are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. These experiences can be terrifying to the person and may cause fearfulness, withdrawal, anxiety, or extreme agitation and depression. They may not make sense when they talk, may sit for hours without moving or talking much, or may seem perfectly fine until they talk about what they are really thinking of. Many people with schizophrenia have a hard time getting a job or find it difficult to take care of themselves, thus, the burden on their families and society is significant as well.
Schizophrenia usually occurs in men during their late teens and early 20’s while women start showing signs in their mid-20s to early 30s. Although cases of schizophrenia in children as young as 5 have been reported, they rarely emerge after age 45 and before puberty. First signs of the condition in adolescents can include a change of friends, a drop in grades, sleep problems like insomnia, and irritability. However, most normal adolescents exhibit these kind of behaviors as well, thus, a diagnosis at this stage can be very difficult.
There are three broad categories for the symptoms of schizophrenia:
Positive symptoms are easy-to-spot behaviors not usually seen among healthy people and often involve losing touch with reality such as hallucinations, delusions, thought disorder, and disorders of movement. Positive symptoms can range from being mild to severe depending on whether the individual is receiving treatment.
A hallucination is something a person sees, hears, smells, or feels that others do not. Voices are the most common type of hallucination in schizophrenia. These voices may comment on their behavior, order them to do things, warn them of impending danger, or argue with each other. They may hear these voices for a long time before family and friends notice that something is wrong. Others include seeing people or objects that are not there, smelling odors that no one else detects, and feeling things like invisible fingers touching their bodies when no one is near.
Delusions are false personal beliefs bordering on the illogical and bizarre. Nothing can change these beliefs even when other people present proof that the beliefs are not true. People may actually believe that neighbors can control their behavior with magnetic waves, people on television are directing special messages to them, or radio stations are broadcasting their thoughts aloud to others. They may also have delusions of grandeur and think they are famous historical figures. They have delusions of persecution that others are deliberately cheating, harassing, poisoning, spying upon, or plotting against them or the people they care about.

People with schizophrenia often have unusual thought processes. They have disorganized thinking and find it difficult to organize their thoughts or connect them logically. Their speech may become garbled or hard to understand. They also experience “thought blocking,” in which the person stops abruptly in the middle of a thought.
People with schizophrenia can be clumsy and uncoordinated, exhibiting involuntary movements and may grimace or exhibit unusual mannerisms. They tend repeat certain motions over and over or, in extreme cases, may become catatonic. Catatonia is a state of immobility and unresponsiveness which was more common when treatment for schizophrenia was not yet available.
The term “negative symptoms” refers to reductions in normal emotional and behavioral states characterized by the following:
immobile facial expression
monotonous voice
lack of pleasure in everyday life
diminished ability to initiate and sustain planned activity
speaking infrequently, even when forced to interact.
People with schizophrenia often neglect basic hygiene and need help with everyday activities. Because it is not as obvious that negative symptoms are part of a psychiatric illness, people with schizophrenia are often perceived as lazy and unwilling to better their lives.
Cognitive symptoms are subtle and are often detected only when neuro-psychological tests are performed. They include the following:
poor ability to absorb and interpret information
poor decision-making
inability to sustain attention
poor ability to keep recently learned information
Cognitive impairments often interfere with the patient’s ability to lead a normal life and earn a living. They can cause great emotional distress and anxiety disorder.
Availability of treatments today can relieve many of the symptoms, but most people who have schizophrenia must cope with some residual symptoms for the rest of their lives. At any rate, patients and families should not lose hope since early treatment can help the patient recover a sense of normalcy in life.

The Depressive Narcissist

Many scholars consider pathological narcissism to be a form of depressive illness. This is the position of the authoritative magazine “Psychology Today”. The life of the typical narcissist is, indeed, punctuated with recurrent bouts of dysphoria (ubiquitous sadness and hopelessness), anhedonia (loss of the ability to feel pleasure), and clinical forms of depression (cyclothymic, dysthymic, or other). This picture is further obfuscated by the frequent presence of mood disorders, such as Bipolar I (co-morbidity).

While the distinction between reactive (exogenous) and endogenous depression is obsolete, it is still useful in the context of narcissism. Narcissists react with depression not only to life crises but to fluctuations in Narcissistic Supply.

The narcissist’s personality is disorganised and precariously balanced. He regulates his sense of self-worth by consuming Narcissistic Supply from others. Any threat to the uninterrupted flow of said supply compromises his psychological integrity and his ability to function. It is perceived by the narcissist as life threatening.

I. Loss Induced Dysphoria

This is the narcissist’s depressive reaction to the loss of one or more Sources of Narcissistic Supply or to the disintegration of a Pathological Narcissistic Space (PN Space, his stalking or hunting grounds, the social unit whose members lavish him with attention).

II. Deficiency Induced Dysphoria

Deep and acute depression which follows the aforementioned losses of Supply Sources or a PN Space. Having mourned these losses, the narcissist now grieves their inevitable outcome the absence or deficiency of Narcissistic Supply. Paradoxically, this dysphoria energises the narcissist and moves him to find new Sources of Supply to replenish his dilapidated stock (thus initiating a Narcissistic Cycle).

III. Self-Worth Dysregulation Dysphoria

The narcissist reacts with depression to criticism or disagreement, especially from a trusted and long-term Source of Narcissistic Supply. He fears the imminent loss of the source and the damage to his own, fragile, mental balance. The narcissist also resents his vulnerability and his extreme dependence on feedback from others. This type of depressive reaction is, therefore, a mutation of self-directed aggression.

IV. Grandiosity Gap Dysphoria

The narcissist’s firmly, though counterfactually, perceives himself as omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, brilliant, accomplished, irresistible, immune, and invincible. Any data to the contrary is usually filtered, altered, or discarded altogether. Still, sometimes reality intrudes and creates a Grandiosity Gap. The narcissist is forced to face his mortality, limitations, ignorance, and relative inferiority. He sulks and sinks into an incapacitating but short-lived dysphoria.

V. Self-Punishing Dysphoria

Deep inside, the narcissist hates himself and doubts his own worth. He deplores his desperate addiction to Narcissistic Supply. He judges his actions and intentions harshly and sadistically. He may be unaware of these dynamics but they are at the heart of the narcissistic disorder and the reason the narcissist had to resort to narcissism as a defence mechanism in the first place.

This inexhaustible well of ill will, self-chastisement, self-doubt, and self-directed aggression yields numerous self-defeating and self-destructive behaviours from reckless driving and substance abuse to suicidal ideation and constant depression.

It is the narcissist’s ability to confabulate that saves him from himself. His grandiose fantasies remove him from reality and prevent recurrent narcissistic injuries. Many narcissists end up delusional, schizoid, or paranoid. To avoid agonising and gnawing depression, they give up on life itself.

Common Causes of Lung Cancer

There are a various risk factors that are linked to lung cancer. The most common known causes are as follows:

Cigarette Smoking
Cigarette smoking is probably the most closely related link to developing lung cancer. A person who smokes two packs or more of cigarettes per day has a one in seven chance of developing lung cancer. Those that smoke one pack of cigarettes per day have a twenty-five times greater chance of developing lung cancer than a non-smoker. In addition, those people that smoke a pipe or cigar have a five times greater chance of developing lung cancer than a non-smoker.

The risk of developing lung cancer increases with the number of cigarettes smoked over your lifetime. Cigarette smoking damages the cells in your lungs. The moment you stop smoking, your lungs begin healing themselves, replacing damaged cells with healthy, normal cells. Your risk of developing lung cancer begins decreasing almost immediately when you quit smoking. Every year that you do not smoke, your chances of developing lung cancer drop further. By the fifteenth year, your chances of developing lung cancer are about the same as those of a person who has never smoked.

Secondhand Smoke
Also known as passive smoking, people exposed to secondhand smoke on a regular basis will have a higher risk of developing lung cancer, even if they do not smoke themselves. Studies have shown that those who live with a smoker have a 24% greater risk of developing lung cancer than most non-smokers. Doctors estimate that about 3000 lung cancer deaths a year are related to secondhand smoke.

Asbestos Exposure
Exposure to asbestos is another well-known cause of lung cancer and mesothelioma – cancer of the pleural lining of the lungs. Asbestos was widely used in construction and everyday products in the late 1800s through the 1960s. Asbestos separates into fine silica fibers that become trapped in the tissues of the lungs. Mesothelioma is inextricably linked to asbestos exposure. There are no reported cases of mesothelioma in people who were not exposed to asbestos either in the workplace or through their environment. A non-smoker who was exposed to asbestos has a five times greater risk of developing lung cancer than a non-smoker who was not exposed. Smoking increases the risk dramatically – a smoker who was exposed to asbestos has a risk of developing lung cancer that is 50 to 90 times greater than that of a non-smoker.

Radon Gas
It is estimated that about 12% of lung cancer deaths can be attributed to radon gas, a colorless, odorless gas that is a natural byproduct of the decay of uranium. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that as many as 15% of homes in the United States have unsafe levels of radon gas, which will account for 15,000 to 22,000 deaths from lung cancer annually.

Air Pollution
Scientists estimate that as many as 1% of all lung cancer deaths are attributable to air pollution. They believe that prolonged exposure to very polluted air can raise the risks of developing lung cancer to about the levels of a passive smoker.

HGH Suppliers Review hghsuppliers(dot)com

A business does not come to the limelight overnight. It needs years of activities, hard-earned trust, customers’ satisfaction and so on to come to the top. As a leading HGH Injection supplier within the United States, this California based business has proven that they deserve their due place. Well, no one is above criticism.

Why HGH Suppliers is the industry leading
This is the most important part of my argument. I will point certain things out that will explain why hghsuppliers.com has become so very popular.

-Immediate shipment: Imagine how you would feel if you get your product after two weeks of your purchase. HGH Suppliers are void of that. They ship your product right after your purchase, though they charge you a small amount for the delivery and handling charges.
-Dedicated hotline: Many HGH sellers seem to hide their identity. But, HGH Suppliers tell everything about themselves before they charge you. They eventually have a dedicated hotline to respond to your queries.

But, it is recommended that you visit their website by yourself and check how their system works. The official HGH Suppliers website is accessible at . You may also have a look on their products page for a list of products they sell.

Story of A Doctor Without Border

Sierra Leone noted as one of the poorest countries in the world whose health system was paralyzed by civil war for decades. In a country located in western Africa, the medical humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) runs a hospital (RS) referral to pediatric patients and women with complications of pregnancy.

The hospital is located in the village Gondama, Bo District, about five hours by road from Freetown, capital of Sierra Leone. In this RS Hosni Mubarak Zainal, a doctor born in South Sulawesi, underwent his third assignment MSF, having previously served in a remote clinic in Malawi and refugee camps in South Sudan.

Most patients arrive at the hospital with severe medical conditions, even in a coma. Because of lack of local health-care costs and inadequate, many patients given the herb plants that actually cause toxicity.

Abubakar, a patient suffering from pneumonia and malnutrition. His liver function was also disrupted due to toxicity of herbal medicine before being taken to hospital. Husni and MSF medical teams perform gastric lavage to remove the remnants of herbal remedies. Pneumonia disease treated with antibotik and he was given therapeutic food for treating malnutrition.

Sierra Leone Lassa is endemic disease, a type of hemorrhagic fever which is transmitted through body fluids of infected patients. RS MSF has an isolation ward for patients with suspected child affected by this disease. Husni medical workers such as doctors must wear protective clothing in layers so as not infected.

“At night duty at the hospital, we must be ready to be called at any time. This is a difficult task because there are more than one hundred beds in this hospital. I get around in ICU, check the condition of critically ill patients, and sometimes I was asked immediately to another ward because there are patients seizures, “says Husni.

“Served in the middle of the night is quite challenging. I have always focused to make sure I assess the patient’s condition correctly.”

On the sidelines of his duty time, Husni took time to read or write while waiting for an emergency call from the radio.

For Husni, working in MSF hospital in Sierra Leone is a special experience because he had the opportunity to help children with critical illnesses who can not get quality health care elsewhere.

“My best moment as a doctor here was to see the children gradually recovered from his illness, they could resume their childhood outside the hospital. I am grateful, happy moments like this happen almost every day, “he said.

MSF hospital in Gondama, Sierra Leone reaching about 600,000 inhabitants and taking care of about 7,200 children per year
