Menopause and OsteoporosisOne of the conditions a woman must be concerned about is osteoporosis. This may usually occur right after menopause. However, there are steps you can take to alleviate it.

Osteoporosis is simply bone loss. It is inherent in aging for both men and women, although women are more susceptible to it. Because a woman’s bone density is less than that of a man, this allows more time for the bone to age. The loss of bone mass begins approximately at age 40. After menopause, there is an acceleration of five to seven years at which point it returns to its normal age-related rate.

The absence of estrogen has less to do with bone loss than aging. In fact, smoking, medications, and being underweight have a greater effect on bone loss. That’s why exercise is so important. It increases bone mass. While osteoporosis can lead to loss of height and tiny fractures, woman are also vulnerable to fractures of the hip. Therefore, it is important to take precautionary measures such as proper diet, exercise and vitamins to prevent the loss of bone mass. Further, your doctor may advise you to take a bone density test to determine just how much bone loss has occurred.

If It Sounds Too Good to be True...You may have come across promotions on the internet by companies giving away ‘free samples’ of their supplements.  All you have to do is pay for the shipping and handling.

I see them from time to time and usually have a look to see where the catch is.  More often than not you will find buried in the small print of the terms and conditions that you are committing to a regular monthly shipment of the product and that it is automatic UNLESS you specifically cancel it.

But, even that can  be problematic as many of these companies do not provide phone numbers, physical addresses or even email addresses.  The only point of contact is through a webform.  Often these companies are not even companies at all but individual marketers working from home without the infrastructure to support customer complaints etc.

Medical Treatments for Bad HabitsCan bad habits be cured through medical treatments? Some say yes; they have succeeded in overcoming their addictions through science. There are many medical treatments for smokers and others who want to block their cravings.

For smokers, there is a variety of nicotine replacement options. Nicotine patches are probably the most popular for bad smoking habits. They can be adhered to the skin and forgotten until the end of the day.

Or, if you are a person who suffers morning cravings, you can wear the patch all night. In any case, you do not have to be constantly thinking about your smoking.

Nicotine gum is also used by many people with these bad habits. It is handy for those who like to do something with their mouths. It cuts their urge to smoke at the same time. You just chew it for awhile, and then place it in between your cheek and gum. The nicotine will enter your bloodstream. Nicotine lozenges work much the same way.

Itching

Itching can be caused by a lot of things. It may be due to allergies from food or plants, insect bites, stings, or even poor hygiene. You can either scratch away and leave scratch marks and wounds on your skin or you can try this.

The Pros, Cons and Benefits of the Master Cleanse DetoxThe Master Cleanse Detox, alternatively known as the Master Cleanse or the Lemonade Diet, was developed between 1940-1941 by a man named Stanley Burroughs. He described it as a valid way to eliminate bodily toxins, which he saw as the cause of all disease. His book on the subject was re-published in 1976 and in 2004, Peter Glickman published a book based on the late Burroughs’ diet.

The Master Cleanse has remained popular and its “get thin quickly” effect has much to do with its current popularity. Although it was not developed for this specific purpose, weight loss is a side effect of the cleanse.

Basically, the diet or cleanse consists of drinking a concoction of fresh lemon juice, water, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper throughout the day for up to 20 days. The recommended time spent on the diet is 10 days.
