Only men have prostate glands and they are situated underneath the bladder.

This tiny gland is about the same size as a large walnut and is comprised of two separate lobes with a layer of tissue on the outside. Some would argue that the prostate should not be called a gland, but an organ.

As men become older, the prostate gland often increases in size. During puberty it is a normal part of our growth cycle for the prostate to double in size.

When men reach the age of 25, or so, the prostate gland starts a second stage of growth. The gland continues to grow for many years and is the reason that it might become too enlarged, at some point.

The problem is that the layer of tissue that covers the prostate does not grow at the same time. The result can be symptoms of prostate problems by pressing against the urethra like a clamp. As a result, the bladder walls begin to become thicker and irritated. This is what leads to another of the symptoms of prostate problems – frequent urination.

Glycation…a simple explanation to a complex problem…

Glycation is even more dangerous to your health than free radicals! It is important that you understand what it is, how it is caused and how to protect yourself against it.

In order to appreciate the problems associated with glycation there are some basic biological facts that you need to be aware of.

Firstly, the role that proteins play in your body!

Proteins are valuable biological molecules which are found in almost every part of your body and have a variety of functions. They are present inside the cells making the life of the cell possible. Without them you would not survive as these proteins are needed to carry oxygen and nutrients to the tissues.

Proteins are made up of strings of different amino acids. To function properly they need to be ‘free agents’. In other words they need to remain as singular molecules to move around and perform their tasks.

So far, so good…

Varicose veins and spider veins will affect close to 40 million Americans, mostly women. Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure which is used to treat these varicose veins and spider veins through a use of sodium chloride directly injected into the vein.

This particular procedure has been used since the 1930s to treat varicose veins. If left untreated these normally cosmetic problems can increase the risk for blood clots, skin ulcers and pain and discomfort.

Sclerotherapy is performed in the physician’s office using a 23% solution of sodium chloride mix with lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic used to help numb the area. Heparin is also added to the solution.

This is injected directly into the blood vessel using a very fine needle. The solution is designed to irritate the lining and cause it to swell and stick together. The blood clots within the vessel and eventually the vessel turns to scar tissue and fades from the body.

Anxiety and Depression »

[9 Mar 2010 | One Comment | 5 views]

As humans, we are a mix of emotional states. One minute we cry and the next we laugh. An even bigger mix is the types of situations that can bring on these emotional changes. It shouldn’t be surprising that your teenager has them too. But, one of the most destructive and mismanaged emotions is anger.

Anger has led to a lot of poor choices and rash decisions. To know this, all you have to do is read the newspaper. Murders, thefts, insidious plots have all begun from a point of anger. On the other hand, so have marches against injustice and new legislation in the government. The difference is how the angry feelings were handled.

One of the daunting jobs of a parent is to help their children manage their emotional states. While we can never control what another person says or does, we can control our response to it. That sense of control comes with a responsibility.
