Are E-Cigarettes a Good Substitute for Smoking Cigarettes?

It is no surprise and not rocket science by any means to understand the negative detriments that smoking traditional cigarettes has on our bodies. Disgusting breath, bad odor, and an empty wallet are easy to see on the outside of the body, but what happens to the inside of the body in regards to lung health and lack of circulation can be even more devastating. That should, what about an alternative to toxic cigarettes such as vaping?

More Background on Bodily Harm Done by Cigarettes

Smoking is dangerous in the fact that it brings in a host of bad chemicals into your body such as arsenic and carbon monoxide. Many of the chemicals in cigarettes are carcinogenic and can lead to the outcome of having cancer. Most people are aware that they are dangerous, but if they understood the other outward effects, they may think twice about smoking them.

Cigarettes can cause early signs of aging from wrinkles, skin stains from the tar on your finders, and the foul odor of smoke on both the breath and also the body: not to mention, it leaves you broke and only wanting for more…what a waste of time and life!

Inside of the body, smoking does more damage than on the outside. Although you cannot see it, arteries constricting and becoming clogged as well as shortness of breath and more susceptibility to getting sick are going on right beneath the skin! Lung cancer, pneumonia, and emphysema are also much higher of risks when someone is a regular smoker. In addition, heart attacks are increased because the body’s ability to both carry oxygen and effectively transport blood are greatly diminished!

“I Can’t Just Quit: So What Can I do About Smoking?”

Enter in E-Cigarettes and the growing popularity of vaping. Although critics and public health officials do not always acknowledge it as a healthy alternative, the majority of current studies say that e-cigarettes are indeed a nice alternative to smoking regular cigarettes (making e-cigarettes the new sense of style) and a great tool towards letting the habit of smoking go; in fact, many current e-cigarette users have relied on the tool to let go of traditional smoking.

What is an E-Cigarette?

Although there are some concerns that e-cigarettes contain carcinogens, heating the liquid inside of e-cigs instead of burning it, does not necessarily mean that dangerous chemicals are being released and inhaled. Burning the liquid could release carcinogens, but heating it and using it responsibility does not have the same effect. The media tends to cast a negative light on it by ignoring these statements and therefore is incorrect in much of its categorization of vaping usage. Other than, nicotine, only vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol are used in the e-cig liquid. The Prop Glycol is what produces the vapor that naturally looks like smoke but is actually composed of water.

What is the Verdict on E-Cigs and Vaping?

Although only fifteen percent of the public perceive e-cigarettes as a healthy alternative to smoking, they are actually proven to be ninety-five percent less harmful than traditional smoking and can also aid in saving a lot of extra cash to thicken your wallet!

It is shown that e-cigs are misunderstood and played out in a negative light by the media. The rechargeable battery is capable of exploding with extreme over-heating, but the likelihood of your e-cig blowing up in your face is about equivalent to your mobile phone blowing up on you while using it at the gas pump: if that were the case, there would be a lot more car fires!

In the end, e-cigs are widely more accepted by publish health and doctors in comparison to traditional cigarettes. The evidence points to strong positive effects when the two are compared and studies show that improved circulatory and respiratory effects are the result of switching from traditional tobacco cigs to e-cigs. Take that into consideration next time you have to choose between the two!

7 Tips on How to Stay Healthy Year Round

The holy grail of life? Staying healthy year round: no colds, no flu, no injury, no sleep deprivation, and no setbacks! Wouldn’t it be great to experience life without any downtime or time away from family, work (well, maybe), and loved ones?

We would all love to be in perfect health, eat the perfect foods, live the healthiest lifestyle, and be pillars of health and productivity given the time, education, budget, and choices in life. However, the truth of the matter is that staying healthy year round is easier said than done…it is a tall order that takes time, energy, effort, and a good sense of understanding of what your body is telling you.

Despite the fact that you may not be perfect, here are my tips on how to stay healthy year round to the best of your human capability:

1) Do some research on vitamins

Although you will never perfectly figure out the micro-nutrient needs of your body, do yourself a favor and research vitamins in a sense of daily amounts, water soluble versus fat soluble, and a full spectrum of foods that they may come in. You may just find out that you are deficient in vitamin D or vitamin B12 for example and may need to supplement.

2) Be good to your joints and your feet

Walking or running a lot? That’s great for your heart and great for your declining levels of fat: but don’t forget about the infrastructure that makes it all possible…your feet and your joints allow you to move and need to be pampered more than you think! Don’t neglect these important bodily workers: get some shock-absorbing cushions to keep your knees and your feet happy without falling apart.

3) Drink your water

This one may seem obvious and almost over-stated in every way possible…but drink your water if you want to keep up your metabolism and keep your body hydrated and regular. Remember that a healthy cell is a metabolized cell; and that a metabolized cell is an energized cell; and finally that an energized cell is a HYDRATED cell. So drink your water and keep your body running properly! 🙂

4) Incorporate weight training or resistance training in general

Cardiovascular work is great for your heart and it helps to burn fat. However, if you want your body’s metabolism to stay healthy, maintain strong bones and muscle, and keep your hormones in an optimal state, you will have to incorporate some form of resistance training. If you do not have weights or have access to them, you can learn some body weight exercises to keep your muscles primed and activated for growth.

5) Breathe, breathe, and breathe

If you want to control your cortisol, optimize healing, and get your lungs and heart beat in sync with each other, you will have to learn how to breathe properly. Try inhaling slowly for 6 seconds, holding for one second, and then exhaling for another 4 to 5 seconds. Do this for intervals of 3 to 5 minutes and you will notice the difference in your relaxation abilities, your stress levels, and your overall mental clarity. You will in addition help your body to heal and stay healthier in the long run.

6) Give up the booze and cigarettes

Do I really have to elaborate on this one? It’s pretty obvious that alcohol causes stress and breaks down muscle tissue whilst smoking causes increased blood pressure and weakens the immune system. If you want to give your body a true fighting chance, put down the smoking and drinking and allow it to heal back up and fight back so that you have less of a chance of getting sick.

7) Get enough sleep every night

This one may be a bit obvious as well, but the optimal levels of sleep (at least 7 hours for an activity individual) will make a world of difference in more ways than one. Your hormones will be more balanced, your mood will be betters, your anxiety will be better in check, and your body will have time to heal itself psychically and also mentally to prepare you for the stresses of the upcoming day. In addition, it will aid you in getting sick less often and for lesser periods of time. When in doubt, sleep it out!

That is my list of the 7 tips on how to stay healthy year round: I hope you liked it. Have some other ideas? Want to dispute my ideas? Want to add to or elaborate on my tips? Leave some comments below and we can discuss how to stay healthier for longer in full detail! 🙂

How does it start?

Menopause is a normal part of aging in a woman usually after the age of 45, A woman is born with a definite number of eggs which are stored in the ovaries, menstruation and ovulation are controlled by the hormones estrogen and progesterone made by the ovaries.

Certain conditions can cause premature menopause

Pm may start as a result of genetic disorders such as autoimmune disorders.

Premature ovarian failure: Normally, the ovaries make progesterone and estrogen, these hormones peradventure may stop releasing eggs due to changes in their secretion or for unknown reasons, if such is the case it is called premature ovarian failure and is always temporary.

Surgical removal of the ovaries: The surgical removal of the ovaries (oophorectomy) in an active ovulating woman will result to immediate menopause or induced menopause, and the ovaries may as well be removed together with the uterus (hysterectomy).

Radiation therapy o chemotherapy can lead to premature menopause when given to an ovulating woman.

Symptoms of menopause

Hot flashes and night sweats are common among women undergoing menopause, a pronounced feeling of warmth over the body especially in the head and chest, since it is yet to be understood fully, it is likely due to a combination of hormonal and biochemical fluctuations brought on by decreasing estrogen levels.

Vaginal starts losing its lubrication as estrogen level falls during perimenopause, becoming thinner, drier, irritation and itching/or pain with sexual intercourse (dyspareunia) starts.

The urethra undergoes changes similar to the tissues of the vagina and thereby leading to an increased risk of urinary tract infections, urine incontinence (feeling the need to urinate more frequently).

Emotional and cognitive symptoms, changes in mood including fatigue, memory problems, irritability, difficulty sleeping, anxiety and reduced sex drive (libido).

Other physical changes are weight gain, hair loss, wrinkles and acne, fat deposits more in the waist and abdominal area rather than in the thighs and hips.

There are certain complications and effects associated with menopause on chronic medical conditions.

Osteoporosis may start due to decreasing estrogen level and it affects the amount of calcium in the bone; this is the deterioration of the quantity and quality of bone that causes an increased risk of fracture, especially in women that do not exercise regularly.

Cardiovascular diseases increases around the time of menopause, decreased estrogen level can hamper the body from retaining flexible arteries, as such palpitations or dizziness may present, however; Women have a decreased risk of heart diseases and stroke volume when compared to men prior to menopause.

Oral contraceptive pills can be prescribed to women in perimenopause as another form of hormone therapy to treat irregular vaginal bleeding. These helps to relieve hot flashes, provide contraception, regulate menstrual periods when given estrogen therapy.

Some hormone and non-hormone treatments can be applied for the symptoms of vaginal estrogen deficiency, such as vaginal estrogen cream, vaginal moisturizer (example, k-y silk-E and liquibeads) as well as using lubricants during intercourse may manage discomfort of vaginal dryness

Betadine can be apply to the outer vaginal area or soaking in a bathtub of warm water can help to relieve the symptoms of vaginal pain and burning after intercourse.

Home remedies such as phytoestrogen and isoflavones plant can as well help, research has shown that a chemical found in soy( isofavones which contains genistein and daidzein) have a chemical structure similar to natural estrogen in the body and helps to relieve mild hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause.

Vitamin E supplements can provide relief to hot flashes, but no concrete facts have been proved scientifically, taking too much dosage of vitamin E may be fatal to health, but always see your gynecologist regardless what you see on the internet.

Some Alternatives to Sugary Drinks for The Kids This Summer

As we enjoy some beach time or family barbeques this holiday, there are likely to be lots of chilled drinks floating around. They go down beautifully in the hot summer sun and can make a fun day even more entertaining. While the adults will likely enjoy a bit of alcohol in their beverages, the kids will be more about the colour and the fizz.

The idea of sweet drinks can be a distressing one, because of the potential for sugar highs. Imagine having a bunch of ordinarily boisterous nieces and nephews. Now imagine herding them when they’re amped up on sweets and soda. The horror! Of course, from a dental perspective, the danger is far higher.

The reason dentists warn against (sweets and) fizzy drinks is that they stay in the mouth for longer periods, so the sugars have more opportunity to do damage to your teeth and gums. Sodas contain simple sugars which are broken down faster in the mouth. This makes it easier for the bacteria in your mouth to absorb and feed on them.

The sooner this happens, the sooner said bacteria would excrete acids, and those acids erode your teeth. On average, a glass of cola contains 30g of sugar per cup. Flavoured milk has 25g, while sports drinks have 20g per cup. For reference, a grown-up should take around 40g of sugar a day, which is roughly 10 teaspoons. Children should consume much less.

If you can take a single glass of soda, you’re fine, but we often consume three or four, especially when it’s hot and humid, or if we’re chilling by the pool in the summer. And of course, between the heat and their playing, kids get a lot more thirsty. They won’t realise that their drinks don’t effectively quench their thirst. They’ll just keep coming back for more.

Rather than rationing their sweet liquid intake – which can be quite the challenge, try replacing carbonated beverages with something healthier. It can still be iced, but it will have considerably less sugar than commercial products. Here are a few substitutions you can try.

Tea for soda

Kids love their fizzy drinks, but it’s easy to replace them with a fruity tea. Pick a flavour that matches their favourite commercial drink. Tea bags and infusions are available in hundreds of varieties, and they have the same taste as your kid’s favourite soda with none of the sugar.

Once you’ve selected the right kind, dip three or four tea bags into a litre of boiling water and let them sit for five to ten minutes so that the flavours fully infuse. You can give the tea some extra kick by adding a cup of soda water or sparkling water. It creates a fizzy effect. To fully bring out the flavour, stir in a teaspoon or two of sugar.

Lemons for oranges

Commercial fruit juice can pack up to 25g of sugar per cup, even when they’re completely natural. And since fruit juices aren’t buffered with fibre, the simpler sugar does more damage to teeth. Instead of bottled orange juice, offer your kids some home-made lemon water. Be sure to make lemon water rather than lemonade.

Lemon water contains one teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice added to one glass of water. Stir it in and offer it to the kids. Since it has no added sugar, it will quench their thirst more effectively than juice, and is much healthier. It also has more flavour than plain water. If you must, you can add a teaspoon of honey to the drink.

Coconuts for sports drinks

Sports drinks are marketed as a healthy option because they contain electrolytes and offer instant energy. However, they also contain a lot of sugar, colour, and artificial preservatives. Instead of putting that junk into your kids, entertain them with coconut water. If possible, use a young coconut rather than a packaged product.

For the kids, a drink served out of an actual coconut will appeal to their sense of fun. It may not be as colourful as a bottled sports drink, but it’s playful and organic. If you can only get the packaged variety, serve the kids in bright cups, quirky bottles, and curly straws.

Flavour your own milk

Flavoured milk is quite popular with little ones, and you can easily justify it because it seems healthy. However, commercially flavoured milk contains added sugar and artificial products. It’s better to buy your preferred brand of milk then add some flavour at home. You can use cocoa powder, organic essence, or blended berries.

How to look stunning and feel alive in easy steps

The fact that people use services like Dore Aesthetics is a testament of how much beauty means to us. However, many are struggling to figure out how they can look stunning. For some it’s easier than for others, but ultimately everyone wishes they would look a little better than they currently do, aside from a small minority of people that just look perfect already.  So how can you look stunning in a few easy steps? Stick around and you’ll find out, as we unlock the box of beauty mysteries, which in truth are just simple tips that work great.

Keeping your body moving

Movement is critical to a healthy lifestyle. If you want to feel alive, you need to always be on the move. Exercise daily in order to stay sharp and to vitalize your entire body. Before you fret about not being able to make it to the gym, you should know that you can simply work out from home a couple of minutes each day, and you will feel considerable differences. You don’t need any heavy equipment, as you can just use your body.

You can also combine the necessity of exercising with that of getting fresh air constantly. Make time to go hiking or to perform outdoors activities. You get the benefits of both at the same time. Also make sure to ask your friends to tag along. Hiking especially is a lot more fun when you go with someone that you can converse with during the hike. Of course, if you would like more alone time, that’s fine as well. Just make sure that when you do go hiking, you are enjoying yourself.

Feed your body what it needs

Skipping breakfast is the worst thing you could possibly do to your body. Not only are you starving it for nutrients, but you are also pretty much inevitably making yourself hungrier. You might not feel it then, but later on throughout the day you will feel a lot hungrier and you will most likely devour through some unhealthy snacks. Get a big protein rich breakfast every morning and make sure you are fully energized before you leave the house.

There are many types of meals you can have, so if it’s just the fact that you’re bored of eating the same things for breakfast, you can change that. Look up healthy breakfast ideas and combine foods you haven’t tried together before, or at all, even. This will give you not only the nutrients you need to start your day, but also the spontaneity to enjoy your day more.

Your face and hair should always get attention

Your face and hair are some of the most important parts of your body when it comes to aesthetics. Make sure you wash your hair regularly and often enough to keep it looking great, and use cleansing treatments to take care of the area around your eyes. Your eyes are a major focal point for your body, so they should always be enhanced.

Also, if your brows are a little wild, and not in the good way, you could groom them a little bit to add more style. But keep in mind that there’s nothing wrong with keeping them natural.  Your eyebrows can be your best quality, so make sure you’re not robbing yourself of an asset.

How Reincarnation Beliefs Gaining Wider Acceptance in Modern Society

For quite some time, reincarnation used to be a belief associated with particular religions. For instance, many Indian religions hold past life as a critical component of their religion. In particular, Jainism and Hinduism view reincarnation as a transmigration of souls. In fact, they believe that such souls continue to learn life lessons. The same is true with Buddhists. For them, it is so important to an extent that they strive their entire life to obtain good karma in order to achieve better reincarnation in subsequent life.

For many people who are outside the affected religions, reincarnation has often remained another intriguing supernatural teaching. In the past two decades or so, however, there have been interesting developments with regards to this topic amongst modern generations and even academicians. Different experiences in life such as visions, surreal dreams and déjà vu have made people to take an open-ended approach towards past-life.

Past scientific studies on reincarnation

The various life experiences have even made scientists carry out research on reincarnation. A notable one was a psychiatrist named Dr. Ian Stevenson who practiced at University of Virginia, School of Medicine. His research focused on parapsychological phenomena including near-death experiences, deathbed visions, psi and reincarnation. He is internationally recognized for his research on reincarnation.

In his research, he indicated that physical injuries and memories can be transferred from past lives. For over 40 years, he travelled across the world to investigate 3,000 cases of children who could recall having past lives. The evidence he tabled suggested that the children had unique illnesses, phobias and philias, all which could not be explained through heredity or their environment. His findings on reincarnation have ignited people’s curiosity on this topic. Refer to this page for more information.

Delving into past lives

Apparently, past-life belief is gaining wider acceptance amongst many people in today’s society. This has prompted many to ask questions regarding the same. While some simply do that out of curiosity, some hold firm beliefs that knowledge on past beliefs can unlock huge potential in our present existence.

Today, there exist various ways in which people can dig deep into their past lives. One popular option is past life regression. It is carried out by someone with experience in regression therapy. They can guide people through a hypnotic state into a previous life. People who have undergone this report different feelings, with some of them indicating the feelings of being in different locations. Others felt the feelings of the opposite sex or speaking in a different language.

Another widely used method of past-life exploration is meditation where people take quiet time to reflect. There is also dream analysis in which people can learn something about their past lives based on recurring dreams.

Exploration of past lives by different people has led to new revelations, with some achieving personal satisfaction and enlightenment. This has even led to past-life healing in which people believe bad experiences from past lives must be healed for affected people to lead a normal life. Do you believe in past life? What’s your take?

What Is Microdermabrasion and How Does It Improve Your Skin?

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that is not known to a lot of people. This procedure is among the most discussed topics by dermatologists. Patients with wrinkles, acne, clogged pores or uneven skin tone use the procedure to improve the condition of their skin. Microdermabrasion treatments require patience and you will notice results after a few treatments. They also require you to protect your skin from the sun. You need anesthesia before the procedure since it can be a little painful.

What to consider before microdermabrasion

    • If you have lupus, eczema, herpes or open sores, you should consider seeking medical advice first.
    • You need to know what you want the procedure to do for you.
    • Consider whether you want to use a home kit or visit a dermatologist.
  • If you are in your twenties, you should not expect too much from the procedure. The procedure seems to work best for those aged between 35 and 55.
  • If you get exposed to the sun every day, you should consider buying sunscreen which will help protect your skin from the sun after the procedure.
  • Consider how much you want to spend on the procedure. You need to research properly before going for the procedure. Visit a few clinics and ask a few people who have tried it about the results they received from it. Remember that everyone who has ever tried the procedure received results no matter how small they were.

Benefits of microdermabrasion

  • It helps exfoliate and remove dead skin cells.
  • It reduces wrinkles, acne scars and fine lines on your skin. The results may vary from person to person. Some people will see results as soon as after the fourth treatment while others require more than 5 treatments to see any results.
  • Helps reduce hyper pigmentation and age spots which may have been caused by too much exposure to the sun or cold weather.
  • It is safe and cost effective.
  • Helps stimulate the flow of blood to the skin. Accompanied by proper nutrition and increased water intake, it also improves cell production and skin elasticity.

The procedure takes around 30 minutes on your face and may take longer if you want it on other body parts. The skin will be sensitive to sunlight after the procedure so try not to expose your skin to the sun. If you must go out in the sun, be sure to use sunscreen. If you have not tried the procedure before, go to a qualified aesthetician or dermatologist. This will help prevent too much bleeding which may mean that the procedure was too aggressive. Ask about his or her training and any question about the procedure that might be worrying you.

What to do after the procedure

  • Buy some sunscreen and cloths that will help protect your skin from the sun.
  • Drink a lot of water and eat a balanced diet. Eating lots of fruits will make your skin to glow.
