Diabetes is manageable and a high quality of life can be maintained if you stay on top of your health. Once you are diagnosed with the disease you should start following a Diabetic plan for optimum health immediately.
One of the most important things that Diabetics can do is follow a meal plan. Do not leave eating up to chance. You must have a plan everyday and know what you are eating before the time to eat arrives. Not eating when you have Diabetes can lead to hypoglycemia or a Diabetic coma which can be fatal. Constructing a low carb menu and sticking to it will help you from having Diabetic episodes.
Your meal plan will be a combination of breads, meats, dairy products, fats, fruits and vegetables just like everyone else’s. When dining with friends and family you can feel free to make the same foods for them that you are eating. You won’t be having special foods or anything different from anyone else.Twitter This!
The tiny air sacs and airways in the lungs lose their elastic qualities and this in turn makes it hard to completely exhale the air from the body.
Normal lungs work like a balloon and bring in vast amounts of fresh air and then release equal amounts of Co2. When emphysema is present some of this carbon dioxide is left in the lungs and each breath becomes more difficult. As this terrible medical condition becomes worse breathing starts to come at great effort and physical activities take a great amount of energy.
Emphysema usually develops over years and there are treatments that can slow it’s progress. Some symptoms that you should be on the lookout for include: consistent shortness of breath, headaches, constant coughing, fatigue, wheezing, difficulty concentrating, tightness in the chest, irritability and a distended chest.Twitter This!

Meridian therapy is an alternative procedure for reducing stress and freeing your body from toxins. It is similar to acupressure in its applications. Meridian therapy releases blocked energy for total body health.
The name of the therapy refers to the lines of energy that run throughout the body. There are twelve meridian lines that run along the body, six on each side.
There are also two unpaired meridian lines: one along the front midline and one along the back midline of the body.
According to ancient Oriental teachings of healing, energy runs along these lines. This energy flow or ki (pronounced chee) is the life force of the body.
The flow of ki must run unobstructed in the body for optimal health. When the flow is interrupted, then the person gets sick in the body. This sickness can manifest itself as headaches, intestinal trouble, tiredness, depression or any number of conditions that people experience every day. According to meridian therapy, their ki is blocked along a meridian and must be unblocked to restore balance.Twitter This!
