Healthy Seniors Are Independent Seniors

''

We can’t help to stress over and over again that health is wealth because if you think about, you only have one body that will last you a lifetime. You die the moment it stops working but it does not happen without any warning signs. As you age, your body degenerates and gradually stop working as efficiently as it did in your youth. Over the years, you start to experience various body aches and pains or you may even get diagnosed with some chronic condition if you are unfortunate enough or perhaps you weren’t really taking good care of your body at all.

Once you reach your senior years, it is inevitable for your health to fail and you requiring special assistance because even doing simple activities of daily living have become unbearable for you. And we see this as the new norm these days with more and more of the elderly requiring carers. However, they can simply do away with all these hassles and still live independently if they are just healthy enough to at least look after …

Is It Better To Not Share A Bed Or Not?

''

At the end of a long and tiring day, what almost everyone is looking forward to is to get that much-desired shuteye. Your own sleep drive will likely tell you when your body had enough and it’s time to call it a day (or night). While you hated having to sleep and take naps as a kid, you now understand just how crucial sleep is in order to function like a normal human being most of the time, if not all the time. You don’t have to worry about these issues when you live by yourself and don’t have to share your bed with anyone, not even your siblings but things drastically change once you tie the knot and you now have to share the bed with your partner or spouse.

Once a couple is past the cuddly honeymoon stage, the idiosyncrasies of married life and the daily grind starts to set in and tick some people off. Some people (especially men) suffer from sleep disorders like sleep apnea that can make sleep impossible for your spouse/partner. Other times, others …

Journey To Weight Loss

''

Losing weight is easier said than done. Many people can agree to this cliché. You’d only realize how hard it is to lose weight when all your weight loss efforts are to no avail considering you’ve tried it all. Obesity is a global problem nowadays. It’s easy to find the culprit when you look around you. Fast foods are the staple when it comes to eating. After all, who has the time to prepare home-cooked meals these days when we are too busy juggling multiple tasks during the day. We end up going home exhausted and the last thing we want to do is to get our hands dirty and exert more energy into preparing and cooking our food.

Processed and artificial foods are everywhere. If you take a trip to the supermarket, you’ll see that the aisles are mostly stacked with cans of processed and preserved foods. There’s only a small section that carries fresh produce like fruits and veggies and most of the time they are also loaded with chemical fertilizers. No wonder people get sick often and …

Fitness Can Be Smart Too

''

Health and fitness are all the rage now. Everything around us is increasingly becoming artificial (even the food we eat) and our health is greatly compromised as we imbibe this modern lifestyle. Obesity is rising faster than we can get rid of the extra fats and calories we put on from our last meal. Not only is obesity a health risk but it also messes up a person’s confidence and shatters their self-image. It’s not a good thing nowadays where people are often bullied for their physical appearance and cyber bullying does more than damage than we give it credit for.

Organic markets are becoming more popular again. People are trying to go back to the basics and to how life was lived back then in an attempt to protect our health and well-being. It all starts with what you eat. Movement or leading an active life also plays a big part in getting that fit and toned body you so desperately want. Unfortunately, living healthy is proving to be more expensive than thriving on junks and preserved foods …

Medical Marijuana Use In The U.S.

''

Controversies are common in the field of Medicine. From controversial animal and human testing to untested ingredients and technologies, medicine is always buzzing with rumors and non-facts.

For something that has been around and used for ages, the experts can’t still agree when it comes to medical marijuana. Since medical cannabis use is not legal in many U.S. states, people have been using it under the radar. But that is about to change if the Medical Marijuana law will be passed in the country.

First off, its use is already legal in some states and other states are already discussing it in Congress. Many people rally for its approval because they believe medical marijuana can offer relief and cure to many of today’s diseases.

The Medical Cannabis Act has made its way past the first hurdle of many on the road to becoming law in Nebraska. It was approved for a hearing by the full legislature by the Judiciary Committee with a 6-1 vote, of which five of the six in favor were sponsors of the bill. Introduced

The Future of American Health Care

''

We all aspire for similar things in life – a roof over our heads, food on the table, education for the youth and health care for all. All the rest are excesses that we can live without. For centuries now, mankind has been struggling to meet its daily needs. From primitive hunting to manual farming, we have come a long way today. And despite the rising and falling of economies, people will always struggle to provide these basic necessities with or without the help of the government.

America is in such a dire situation today. The country is facing a lot of issues today – from the economy to international trade to basic health care services. Confusion is always expected when the leadership changes especially when they are from opposing parties. The new president will likely want to wipe out every trace of the previous administration.

President Trump on Tuesday turned up the pressure on recalcitrant Republicans to support a sweeping bill to overhaul the health care system, threatening wavering lawmakers in his party with political payback if they failed

Breakthrough Anti-Snoring Device For Loud Snorers

''

Life does not end when we sleep even though many of us may think that we are done for the day once we hit the sack and close our eyes. It is true, though, that we may temporarily forget our concerns and problems as we drift off to unconsciousness and dreamland but that does not mean our body ceases to function. If it does, then we are dead for sure.

Sleep is supposed to help our body recuperate from the stresses of the day and recharge in anticipation of the new day. However, it is not always the case for some loud snorers. For couples, this may be a big issue since both partners are affected and end up losing precious sleep.

As annoying it may be to the partner who does not snore, it is a serious health concern for the partner who snores. Experts have identified snoring as a health risk that may ultimately lead to a long list of chronic and debilitating (even deadly) health conditions.

Annoying and more often than not, disruptive, snoring is the most
