'‘I Made 3 Changes To My Diet, and Finally Got a Six-Pack’'

Image
Carl Parnell remembers being a picky eater at 7 years old—so much so, that his parents just fed him whatever he wanted. While he’s been involved with soccer most of his life, the 37-year-old UK native was always a “chubby child,” even through his teenage and early adult years. And he didn't know what to do about it. But in 2012, Parnell got the reality check he needed: His then 4-year-old daughter looked up at him and said “Daddy, you look like you have been pumped up by a bicycle pump.”
“It hit me hard. You can put a brave face on, but it did hurt,” he recalls. “But I really needed to hear that.”

For the next two years, he went through a roller coaster of yo-yo diets and workout plans that didn’t work. It was always the same cycle: He’d lose a little bit of weight and then gain it all back, always tipping the scales at about 216 pounds (he had already lost some weight in the before photo above). After struggling to find a routine that worked for him, Parnell decided to…

Having Knee Pains? This Recipe Has Made All Doctors Crazy, It Heals Your Knees And Reconstructs Bones And Joints Immediatly

Image
As we age, our organs and body as a whole start to deteriorate, which results in many age-related conditions. Bone and joint pain is one of the most common body aches with the passage of time. Many people consider it untreatable and try to soothe the pain with painkillers and other medications, but there is a way of treating the pain completely naturally and with no side-effects.

The knees are one of the body parts that is subjected to a lot of wear and tear over time. They support our weight and are very important for our movement, which is why they need to be protected. Additionally, our joints can be easily worn down due to a number of factors such as bad posture or inflammation.

Once joint or bone pain kicks in, it will only increase if left untreated. These aches are usually among the first symptoms of aging, and they progress over time. They won’t go away after a while, and should be treated as soon as possible in order to avoid bigger problems. Luckily, this can all …

5 Signs You Have Liver Damage Without Even Knowing It

Image
Your liver is the largest internal organ (and also the largest internal gland) that you have in your body. In a healthy adult, a normal liver will weigh somewhere between 3-3.5 pounds and it plays a crucial role in multiple key bodily functions.

The key functions of the liver are to detoxify your blood and to enhance your digestive system by creating bile, which helps to break down the fats that you consume into small pieces, making them easier for your small intestine to absorb.

But that’s not all. Here is a quick summary of what else your liver does for you:

It stores some of your body’s vitamins and ironIt stores glucoseIt converts glucose into sugar that the body can use when the body’s sugar levels become depletedIt processes hemoglobin, insulin, and a variety of other hormonesIt converts ammonia into ureaIt eliminates old red blood cellsYou simply can’t live without it, that’s why it’s so important to be able to detect and interpret the early symptoms of liver disease.

Real Facts on Urinary Tract Infections

Image
It’s a common misconception that a urinary tract infection (UTI) automatically equals a bladder infection. In reality, a UTI can develop in any part of the urinary tract, including the urethra, bladder, ureters, or kidneys.
The villain in this scenario is bacteria. When a UTI is diagnosed and treated properly, most people won’t have complications.
How can you make sure this happens to you?

Symptoms
The Urology Care Foundation – which is the official foundation of the American Urological Association (AUA) – describes a UTI as the lining of the bladder and urethra becoming red and irritated just like your throat does during a cold. This can result in pain in the belly and pelvic area, and may make you feel like urinating more frequently. Sometimes trying to urinate isn’t successful, as only a few drops are released and/or there’s burning. Incontinence can occur, and the urine can smell bad or look cloudy.


Women tend to get more bladder infections than men, according to the National …

Is Your Period Pain Free?

Image
I remember the first time I got my period. I was 12 and in school – of course. My bleeding and cramps were severe enough to warrant a get-out-of-school-free card. The only person available to pick me up was my taciturn grandfather. That was fun.
My cycle has varied over the years, and as I approach menopause, I look forward to no longer receiving my monthly visitor. I’m thankful that it gave me two kids, but I won’t miss the sore breasts, bloating, mood swings, inconvenience, or the pain.


The pain. I imagine wringing out a towel; only it’s my uterus.
Everyone’s menstrual cycle is different, as is everyone’s pain tolerance. So how should you deal with period pain, and how do you know when to see a healthcare professional?
Period pain 
As you may have noticed, menstruation can change with time, or even from cycle to cycle, says Dr. Jennifer Lang, MD, OB/GYN, FACOG. Some women, for example, have no discomfort, while others miss days of school or work due to their symptoms.

5 Reasons Why Women Feel Dizzy and How to See Straight Again!

Image
Barbara didn’t think much about it when she felt dizzy after getting up from her easy chair. Who didn’t feel a little dizzy now and then? She figured she just got up too quickly. She wasn’t as young as she used to be, after all, so she started to give herself more time to adjust.
A week later, when she was taking a walk, it hit her again. She had to stop and sit down. Must be the heat, she figured. She’d forgotten to take water with her. She’d be sure to bring along a bottle from now on.

A month passed, and still Barbara was struggling with dizziness. She’d made several changes in her lifestyle, trying to address the problem, but the world was still spinning at the most inopportune times. She finally decided to see her doctor.
Estimates are that more than 40 percent of Americans will experience dizziness or vertigo serious enough to see a doctor at one time or another in their lives. According to a 2001 study, women are about twice as likely as men to end up in the hospital …

5 Ways to Become More Optimistic

Image
Considering these findings, how can we all become more optimistic? Below are several suggestions that may help. Even if you don’t think you’re a particularly optimistic woman, you can improve. Dr. Kaitlin Hagan, one of the lead researchers on this study, told Harvard Women’s Health Watch that people can change:

“Previous studies have shown that optimism can be instilled by something as simple as having people think about the best possible outcomes for various areas of their lives.”
Dr. Sood agrees, stating that optimism can be learned, and that if women can be optimistic, “they are more likely to have more incremental benefit in their health outcomes compared to men.”

1. Keep a gratitude journal.
Many studies have shown that having an attitude of gratitude is good for us. Optimistic people tend to “look on the bright side.” You can generate these feelings in yourself by keeping a journal in which you record five good things that happened to you each day. Some days it will be…

Women Who Cop This Attitude Live Longer!

Image
American philosopher and psychologist William James said, “Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.”
It’s a quote that makes sense to most American women. We’re a positive nation on the whole, and believe in having hope for the future. We know that if we can approach each day with an optimistic attitude, things are likely to go better for us than they would if we set out each morning with frowns on our faces.

A recent study suggests that optimism may do a lot more for women than give them hope or happiness, however. Researchers at Harvard’s T. H. Chan School of Public Health observed data from 70,000 women, and found that those who were more optimistic actually had a better chance of living longer lives!
What does this mean for us? After all, we can’t always put smiles on our faces. There are days when things just aren’t good, and no amount of attempts to “be positive” will make them better. What actions do we really need to take in our lives to enjoy the benefits of …

10 Tips to Help You Sleep Better

Image
If you or a loved one is having trouble sleeping, try these tips to leave insomnia behind and enjoy better health no matter what your age. Avoid sleeping pills, as they can cause serious side effects and don’t address the underlying cause of insomnia. Some studies have shown they can even make it worse in the long run.
Switch medications: Ask your doctor about the medications you’re taking. If you suspect one of these may be interfering with your sleep, you may be able to take something similar that won’t affect you as much. Changing the dose or the time of day you take the medication could also help.  Ask your doctor: If you suspect that you or a loved one may be experiencing memory problems, check with your doctor for a diagnosis. If you’re seeing the early signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s, early treatment can help delay the progression, and may also lead to better sleep. Urinary problems, GERD, respiratory issues, restless leg syndrome, and more should all be discussed w…

As A Woman Over 50: How Much Sleep Do You Really Need?

Image
I’ve heard it said that we don’t need as much sleep as we get older.

Some research seems to support the idea. When asked to stay in bed for 16 hours in the dark each day, younger people (18 to 32 years) slept an average of 9 hours, whereas older people (60 to 76 years) slept an average of only 7.5 hours.

The elderly may need less sleep, the scientists theorized, though they did say more research needed to be done.

Other experts have agreed with this theory, stating that sleep changes from childhood to adulthood into older age. Whereas an infant may require 16 to 20 hours a day, a young child needs only 11 or 12. Adolescents feel best on about 9 hours, and adults seem to do well on 7-8.
But what about seniors?

A new study challenges the idea that we don’t need as much sleep in our golden years. Researchers agreed that older adults often don’t sleep as well as younger adults, and looked into the various reasons why. Turns out that it’s not that seniors need less sleep, but instead,…

Fight High Blood Pressure And Heart Disease Without Deadly Medications

Image
The risk of hypertension can be affected by a wide range of risk factors, from smoking, stress, and overeating to excessive drinking and lack of physical activity.  All of these factors impact people in a different manner, meaning that there isn’t any exact way to set the limits on what is too much.

This is the reason why maintaining a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle is quite challenging, requiring elimination of the bad stuff and introducing more of right things in your daily routine.  If you strive towards regulating your blood pressure levels, making certain lifestyle modifications is a must.


High blood pressure levels make it much more difficult for the blood to get pumped through the body, which in turn increases the risk of disease by putting stress on the heart. Complications of hypertension are quite severe, including eye damage, stroke, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, and kidney disease.

Did You Know You Can Remove Fibroma And Other Skin Warts All By Yourself?

Image
Fibromas are growths on the skin, which are actually benign tumors of connective tissue. They look like small nodes and their size can vary from 1 millimeter to 1 centimeter. They usually have the same color as the skin, but they can also be lighter in color.

They are not dangerous, but their number can increase and they can become an aesthetic problem. They usually appear on the neck, the armpits, the crutches, under the breasts, the stomach and the eyelids.

However, they can also appear on other parts of the skin. In fact, almost every man has at least one fibroma, so fibromas are not rare.

Fibromas can also get inflamed, start bleeding or get bigger. Their number and size increases gradually through the years. Even though the reasons for the appearance of fibromas are not known, fat deposits contribute to their appearance.

The number of fibromas can vary from a couple to several hundreds. A doctor can diagnose a fibroma and a dermatologist can prescribe the further treatment…

Never Dispose Eggshells

Image
Most people tend to dispose of the egg shells once they are done with cooking the eggs.However, by throwing them in the trash, you will be deprived of many health benefits.

As a matter of fact, egg shells are probably the best natural source of calcium and are much easier for the body to digest and absorb. Egg shells are healthy and balanced calcium, thanks to the trace amounts of other minerals.

Namely, the calcium found in egg shells is the same calcium which our bones and teeth are made of. Not only is calcium needed for healthy bones, it is needed for the muscles and nerves as well.

As mentioned above, the powder from egg shells is easily absorbed and this is confirmed by several studies conducted in the US National Institutes of Health. In addition, it was found to reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, and of course, to strengthen the bones.

As little as half a tablespoon of eggs shells powder provides about 90 percent of the recommended daily intake for an adu…

Fibroid Cure

Image
The natural and effective remedy to get rid of Fibroids without drugs or surgery.
Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that grow from the muscle layers of the uterus (womb). Nowadays, 3 out of every 5 women have fibroids. Fibroids can be as small as a pea or as large as a grapefruit. Fibroid has several names such as uterine myoma, leioma, fibroma, fibromyoma, or as hysteromyoma.

TYPES OF FIBROIDS
1- Intramural fibroids: These are located in the wall of the uterus. These are the most common types of fibroids.
2- Subserosal fibroids: These are located outside the wall of the uterus. They can develop into pedunculated fibroids (stalks). Subserosal fibroids can become quite large.
3- Submucosal fibroids: These are located in the muscle beneath the lining of the uterus wall.
4- Cervical fibroids: These are located in the neck of the womb (the cervix).
