Gross Misinformation about Fish Oils…

October 9th, 2007

Question: from Darikka

I am a mother of one-year old boy. I have been Breastfeeding him for a year now and will continue to do so for another year. When my baby was 8 month, he had skin rash that appeared everyday and disappeared in the morning. The doctor said he could be allergic to seafood so we stop giving him seawater fish since then.

I just discovered recently that he actually was allergic to baby liquid Soap. I switched to a bar Soap and he never had skin rash again. I, however, do not dare to give him seafood yet. At the same time, I am afraid that he might not have enough Omega 3 for his brain. I would like to use your Fish Oil hoping that it will be passed on to him through my milk. Nevertheless, I have some questions/concerns on the following:

  1. Will Fish Oil get passed on to my baby through my milk? Will he be allergic to it? Should I take Fish Oil or not?

October 9th, 2007

Exercise is what your body instinctively wants to do especially under stress: fight or flight, and it works. It Burns off some of the stress chemicals which Tension produces.

But even something as casual as a walk around the block can help you burn off some of the Tension that you carrying around.

  1. Aerobics : The word aerobic literally means “with oxygen” or “in the presence of oxygen.” Aerobic exercise is any activity that uses large muscle groups, can be maintained continuously for a long period of time and is rhythmic in nature. Aerobic activity trains the heart, lungs and Cardiovascular system to process and deliver oxygen more quickly and efficiently to every part of the body. As the heart muscle becomes stronger and more efficient, a larger amount of blood can be pumped with each stroke. Fewer strokes are then required to rapidly transport oxygen to all parts of the body. An aerobically fit individual can work longer, more vigorously and achieve a quicker recovery at the end of the aerobic session.

Using sedatives as medications for insomnia - Effectiveness and dangers

October 9th, 2007

The amount of sleep a person needs in a day varies depending on the age and other lifestyle and health factors. The quality of sleep also matters to a large extent. Lying in bed and tossing and turning will still leave you groggy and listless whereas, at times a catnap can refresh you totally.

Insomnia is a condition where an individual is unable to sleep peacefully for more than a couple of minutes at a time.

The general perception is that Insomnia can be cured by sedatives, a substance that induces sleep. It is also believed that sedatives cause an individual to relax and therefore, sleep peacefully.

But this is far from the actual truth. Sleep induced by sedatives is neither a cure nor a permanent remedy. You may actually feel relaxed and sleep for some time but sedatives are addictive. Taking sedatives regularly can become such a habit that the dependency increases to such an extent that sleeping with one becomes impossible.
