  • hypertension
  • risk of heart disease and stroke
  • weak immune system
  • reduced energy
  • development of osteoporosis
  • poor motor function
  • risk of birth defects

Misconceptions About Relapse

October 5, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

  • Relapse occurs when a person suddenly starts using drugs during recovery. Apparently, a relapse may begin long before a person actually gets back to the substance again. Most of the times, a relapse is preceded by a number of warning signs and paying a close attention to them can greatly help in curbing its occurrence.
  • Relapse implies the failure of treatment. Recovery is an ongoing process. Therefore, relapse does not signify the end of the world. However, one needs to understand the problems that led to a relapse and get back to the track by reestablishing one’s abstinence to drugs and alcohol.
  • Using a different drug is not relapse. Whether a person begins to use the same drug again or a new drug, it is simply a situation of relapse. Clearly, relapse does not depend on the type of the drug. Thus, a person cannot be considered as sober or

Simple Swaps to Help Lower Your Blood Sugar

October 5, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0
  1. Swap A Bagel For An English Muffin. If you eat bagels often, they contain a significant amount of carbs. In fact, they are loaded with complex carbs, and while they are an energy producing food, they are not so ideal where blood sugar levels are concerned. Try an English muffin instead. You will take in about half the carbs with this option and still get a reasonable dose of energy when you need it.
  2. Swap Yogurt For Cottage Cheese. Try cottage cheese over yogurt next time you need a quick snack.

Cottage cheese is also slightly lower in carbohydrates as well, so a good option for those who are wanting to

Trouble Sleeping

Melatonin, in addition to being the primary hormone for normalizing the circadian rhythm (your normal wake and sleep cycle) is also a powerful antioxidant. It quenches free radical production which is responsible for destroying your cells

Two frequently used formulas for sleeping difficulties are Kavinace by Neuroscience and Kavinace Ultra PM also by Neuroscience.

These are all part of the coping process. However, despite of the availability of clothing able to battle out this temperature change, there are times or circumstances that put us in the position of being unable to fight the weather. One of these biggest risks is frostbite.

It can be difficult to deal with frostbite, and if not treated right, it could lead to frightening consequences such as nerve damage and amputation.

So a heads up: if you need to travel or stay out in the cold for long hours this winter season, you will be highly vulnerable to …
