Trying to Determine if You Are Allergic to Gluren

We have been parents for a short time and right now we are wondering if Robbie has some sort of allergy. In particular it seems like he is displaying some of the typical gluten allergy symptoms and we are going to talk to our doctor about what we do to find out if it is true or not. In fact he could have these symptoms for other reasons and it is not an allergy at all. The same symptoms are quite common and could be caused by a lot of other problems. They are pretty worrisome since Robbie is so young and he has lost a lot of weight due to the vomiting and the diarrhea. It has been going on for some time and Lynn realized that it seems to have coincided with the time frame when we were starting to feed Robbie normal food. At least that is what we were told. Of course you do not want to just start a child on table food immediately. Continue reading Trying to Determine if You Are Allergic to Gluren

There is No Universal Acne Cure

Finding 100% pure Rosehip Oil turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would be. I’ve been making it myself for a while now thanks to the garden that my old place had but now that I’ve moved into an apartment I unfortunately don’t have any space to have my own herb garden! I know, it’s super sad but thankfully Amazon has exactly what I need. I’ve been using Rosehip Oil for several years now in place of a moisturizer – I couldn’t justify spending the $30 that a good moisturizer typically is going to set you back.

Honestly, I’ve been battling acne since I was fourteen. It’s become part of my life – a very annoying part of my life that I wish I didn’t have to deal with. Continue reading There is No Universal Acne Cure

What’s All the Fuss About Phytoceramide Supplements?

One thing you notice as the years slip by is how much your skin starts to look like your mom’s skin. I noticed my mom’s skin losing its elasticity and firmness years ago. She actually got a facelift. It does make her look like she pretty much instantly took 20 years off of the look of her face, but that is too extreme for me. Since I am 22 years younger than my mother, I wanted to get started doing something to protect my skin’s integrity now. That is why I got interested in phytoceramide supplement choices.

I heard about them on that doctor show on TV. Continue reading What’s All the Fuss About Phytoceramide Supplements?

Causes of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes

The precise cause of type 1 diabetes is not known. What has been determined is that the body’s immune system eliminates it’s own islet cells in the pancreas. The function of the islet cells are to produce insulin. Once the cells are destroyed, the body makes little to no insulin.

Without insulin, the body can’t provide adequate energy to tissues and muscles. When a healthy, non type 1 person eats the pancreas produces normal insulin and it is sent to the bloodstream. From that point, it makes the rounds through the cells in the body and provides the required energy vital for normal function. The liver also plays a vital role in storing and producing insulin. Whenever your insulin levels are running low, the liver will pick up the slack and change stored insulin into back into normal glucose. This lowers the blood sugar and keeps it a normal level.

Because type 1 diabetes there is not enough glucose for the conversion to occur, the normal functions mentioned above do not occur. Rather than being transported back into the bloodstream, the glucose increases to high levels. The high levels of glucose can lead to damaging and potentially fatal consequences. Often, people who have diabetes may have to wear special shoes, such as those found at, to encourage proper circulation and prevent issues related to diabetes.

The most common form of diabetes is type 2. Of all diagnosed cases, only 5 to 10% are non type 2. With this type, the body does produce insulin just not enough for proper use. There can be many causes related to this type of diabetes. It can be a single cause or several factors may contribute to the disease.

Anybody can get type 2 but there are certain factors that may contribute. For example, people who are overweight or morbidly obese are at a high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Also, people who are inactive or have a genetic predisposition are at risk. Certain ethnic groups are at a higher risk as well. Type 2 diabetes does not form overnight. You will go through an insulin resistant phase, also known as pre-diabetic, prior to full onset diabetes. It can take an individual years to discover that they have type 2 diabetes.

Pills Was a Smarter Choice for Me

I try to be positive about my body, but when I looked in the mirror, I was so very unhappy with the way certain parts of my body looked. But the issue is that plastic surgery is really expensive. Who has $1,000 to simply remove some freckles or $20,000 to change the size of your breasts when you have children and a home to take care of? I sure don’t. I was reading online about breast enhancement pills and I wondered if they would work for me. I wondered if I should go get some price quotes from a surgeon first and to see if they had a payment plan. I did not know the answer, and I was on the path to find out.

I did a lot of research to see who the best surgeons are in my area. If I was going to talk to anyone, I wanted them to be the best. Continue reading Pills Was a Smarter Choice for Me

What Helped Both of Us Lose Weight

When my coworker came back to work after her maternity leave, I was pretty surprised at how she looked. I have been around a lot of women who have been pregnant, and very few looked as good as she did. I couldn’t hold back my questions, but she did not take offense. I really did want to know how she managed to lose her pregnancy weight and come back looking better than ever, and she told me that all the credit goes to a free diet plan that she had downloaded from the Internet.

She told me that she had been feeling fat and ugly instead of happy, and she knew she needed to do something about it. Continue reading What Helped Both of Us Lose Weight

A Crack in the Tooth Filling

While eating one day, one of my tooth fillings became cracked. I had the tooth filled years ago after getting a root canal. I was hesitant to go back to the dentist because I didn’t have such a pleasant experience when I initially had the tooth filled. My hesitation caused the cracked filling to become infected, and at that point, I had no choice but to seek help. I didn’t want to go back to the same dentist, so I looked for Albuquerque endodontic retreatment.

The infection caused a lot of pain in my mouth. I was able to dull the pain a little bit with some over the counter medication, but it was still pretty bad. Continue reading A Crack in the Tooth Filling

Why Losing Weight is Hard for Women

When my husband and I decided to lose weight together, we thought that it was going to be a pound for pound journey. What I mean by that is we thought we were going to lose about the same amount of weight at the same pace since we were eating virtually the same foods and exercising the same amount. I was even eating about 500 calories less per day than he was, but he still ended up losing weight so much faster than me. A friend of his told me to look at the Venus Factor Diet when I was jokingly complaining that it really isn’t fair that men lose weight so much easier and quicker than women.

That is when he told us the reason why this is. I had no idea that it was something biological about women. It is a hormone that women have an abundance of because we are the ones who become pregnant. Continue reading Why Losing Weight is Hard for Women

Finding Recipes for Healthy Salads

For years, my wife has been making salads for the family, and they are not very healthy. One of the typical salads that she would make, includes Iceberg Lettuce, cheese, Ranch dressing, bacon bits, and other things along those lines. They are not very good for you, and I think that might be putting it lightly. I am going to try to look up recipes healthy salads.

I am going look up some recipes, and I really want to try something different. I have always been opposed to the concept of fruit in salads, but I am starting to warm up to the idea. I think that it could actually work, if you had the right dressing to put on the salad. In general, I want to move away from dressing that are high in fat. A lot of them are quite high in fat, and I think that is one of the main reasons that people turn healthy salads, into something far from being healthy.

I am not sure how likely it is going to be that I will be able to find the right recipe right away. Continue reading Finding Recipes for Healthy Salads

Why Does Society Revile Men

As a man grows older, there is no doubt that many functions that used to be normal begin to fail him. This is a natural process of the human body that, more or often than not, is unable to be denied. And yet because we are living longer and more active lives, many of us want to do what we can to bypass this issue! Who could want to blame them for that? Personally, I’ve actually taken Sildenafil recreationally from time to time to great success and a lot of enjoyment. I can only imagine what it’s like to take it when you actually need it!

it’s a shame that men are often reviled for taking something like Viagra. It’s not our fault that our bodies are unabnle to keep up with our minds or our desires. It’s simply a product of our fantastic health industry that we’re living longer and fuller lives. Continue reading Why Does Society Revile Men

Need to Trim Down to Play in the Backfield

Of course I thought I would play the tight end or as a middle linebacker when I showed up here. It was going that way until I blew out my knew before my sophomore year here. Now I am at a weight that would be good for a tight end or a linebacker, but that is not where I am going to play as things look right now. Instead I need to lose five or ten pounds and get quicker to play as a slot receiver slash running back and as a defensive back. I need some hcg drops or something that would magically let me drop the weight without losing any strength and I need to work on my agility, burst speed and getting down the field.

The coach who recruited me to this college moved on to a bigger school, and we got this new coach from Texas who runs the sort fo spread offense that they like so much down there and out in the Big 12. You never huddle up at all and you need about a dozen guys who can catch the ball. I was a very good receiver in high school and in fact this is the sort of offense where I would get the ball upwards of 25 times per game, either directly through a hand off or in the short passing game. We been running it already in spring practice and all of the running backs are just not very good at this sort of football. Hardly any of them can catch most of the balls thrown to them. To be honest the quarterback situation is unsettled too and the guys we are practicing are not used to getting these sorts of quick throws out with the accuracy that you really need.

I Needed a Better Job

I didn’t go to college when I graduated from high school. I knew that I did not want to sit in a classroom for four more years. I wish I had thought more about the types of jobs I would be able to get with just a high school diploma though. There were not many, and the available ones were for minimum wage. I knew that I needed something more than that, so I started looking at the different options available to me. A friend suggested I look into phlebotomy certification because the training is not anywhere near as long as a traditional college degree. Continue reading I Needed a Better Job
