Every year, heart disease kills up to 18 million people of all ages. Heart disorders are often disguised as a slight indisposition or features of the body. Here is a list of the not always obvious symptoms that indicate possible heart disease. People who are overweight, with diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol level should be especially attentive to these signs.
1. Chest Pain
Someone feels a slight pain, others may complain of pressure or burning pain. In any case, if you sometimes feel some unusual sensations in your chest, you need to go to the therapist as soon as possible and get an electrocardiogram and heart ultrasound. There is also good news, in 80–90% of cases, chest pain is not connected with heart problems.
The problem of painful sensations during sex in women used to be omitted by discussions. It’s a very delicate and somehow stigmatized subject because historically women weren’t encouraged to speak about their bodies aloud or tell their partners there’s something wrong in bed (in order not to put their masculinity under concern).
However, these days are the days of women’s empowerment and speaking free about women’s bodies is a very important part of it. This concerns their health – the warning symptoms women often are ashamed to speak about may be the signs of diseases that need treatment.
What do you imagine when you hear the phrase “the risks of running”? Perhaps you think of the runner’s knee, heart attack or something similar. But we often forget about our skin which covers our entire body and is influenced by everything that we are involved in.
Running means spending a lot of time outdoors, under the sun and in motion. There are some benefits and risks for the runner’s skin. This concerns skin on different parts of the body. There are good news and bad news for runners. Let’s start with the good ones.
The reputation of superfood gained by broccoli seems to have come to stay. This magic vegetable has many fans and haters. Fans praise its unique compound full of important vitamins and minerals. Haters complain about its taste claiming it to be poor and unpleasant. However, any food can be cooked the way that opens the best notes of its flavor.
Why cooking broccoli is definitely worth trying? This vegetable is good for your health not only because it contains very few calories and zero fats. It is really a great source of multiple nutrients especially important for people with certain health issues. It preserves most of its priceless compound being eaten raw. But if you don’t like its taste, you can cook it.
At least some foods which are present in any kitchen are dangerous in one form or another. We are used to adding them to different dishes and do not even think about the potential threat. We just can handle some foods in such a way as to protect our body from dangerous substances which are contained in them. But no one is safe from mistakes, so it’s best to know in advance what products may be really dangerous for anyone.
1. Cashew Nuts
The raw cashews that each of us buys in the supermarket are not really raw. They are handled by steam before being placed on store shelves. This allows getting rid of the dangerous chemical compound, which in large quantities can be fatal. It is called urushiol and is also found in poison ivy. So stay away from cashews that have not undergone a proper cleaning procedure.
Do you prefer to prevent problems from occurring? Hopefully, the answer is yes because after all, it is the most sensible approach. But do you visit your dentist regularly? If you answered no, and you tend to skip appointments, then you are missing a very vital trick. In fact, preventative dental care is far easier, quicker, cheaper, and much more effective at helping to ensure your pearly whites remain strong and healthy.
Although the opportunities that modern cosmetic dentistry provides are truly impressive, it’s not magic. It’s hard work that requires great skill and experience of specialists, the newest equipment and technologies, but also great patience and commitment from the patient. The cases are different, and very often, the procedure may require even removing some of your teeth.
Yes, that’s right. The tendency in modern dentistry is to preserve as much as they can but sometimes it’s just impossible to kill two birds with one stone. If your dentist says that you need teeth removal to achieve the result you want, there are serious reasons for this and any other way is impossible. No dentist will ever take such decision if there are at least chances to avoid it.
The cervical ectropion (also called ectopy or erosion although the last word isn’t correct) is among the most common reproductive health abnormalities in women of childbearing age. This disease, like many other gynecological diseases, can develop completely unnoticed by a woman. However, it can also show some symptoms, and sometimes they may be really annoying.
This condition is easy to misunderstand. Let’s discuss the most common myths about it and figure out what exactly is a cervical ectropion and what is important about it.
If you have Internet or TV, you probably heard about stem cell technologies used in medicine and cosmetics at least once. Maybe you’ve also heard some ethic discussion concerning the use of them. In any way, stem cell technology is a thing. Not only does it promises great results in medical and cosmetic implementation but has already shown them.
The hype was also caught by the beauty industry. There are plenty of cosmetic procedures and skin care products based on the magic of stem cells. They promise regeneration, rejuvenation and many other possible wonders to happen to your skin. Although the research is still ongoing, this type of skin care is already a trend.
As your baby is born, you have plenty of things to do and perhaps the last thing you would want is to double them. However, there are enough mothers who are quite okay with the idea that they can get pregnant again very soon. People are different, each decision deserves respect. But the information about the next pregnancy right after labor will be equally relevant for both types of novice mothers.
Is It Really Impossible to Conceive While You Breastfeed?
It is believed that you can’t conceive when you are breastfeeding. This idea has scientifically approved ground. You can thank prolactin for this. This hormone is responsible for your lactation. It starts producing when you are pregnant to get your body prepared for this vital process. It is known to oppress ovulation.
