Technology Cleanse

November 14, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Outline Your Cleanse

Without a plan, you plan to fail. Technology cleanses are probably one of the hardest cleanses to endure because it’s not a physical challenge, but a mental one. Decide how long you will cleanse for (typically 2-3 days or a week) and plan to begin 2-3 days prior so that you are not quitting cold turkey. Also set parameters of what technology you will obstain from, or when you will be able to use them. During this planning phase, decide what you want to spend your time doing instead. You will need this outline to refer to when you are feeling the itch, which brings us to our next point; relapse prevention.

Relapse Pre-Prevention

Decide why you are doing this technology cleanse and write your answer down. Place this card somewhere you will see it daily as a reminder, or keep it on you at all times. …

Glaucoma Treatments

November 11, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

See a Doctor

See your eye doctor regularly for standard check-ups. He or she will check for the signs of glaucoma to catch it early. Medical professionals recommend that you see your eye doctor every five to ten years, assuming you are under forty years old and have no risk factors (i.e. family history, heritage, high blood pressure, or diabetes.) As you age, the frequency of these visits should increase. By the time a person reaches 65, these check-ups should occur every six months to a year.

Get Treatment

If you do get diagnosed with glaucoma, find the best glaucoma treatment for you by working closely with your doctor. Based on your unique situation, your physician might find that eye drops are effective on their own, or perhaps you will also need laser treatments or surgeries to lower ocular pressure. When patients experience adverse side effects, or the glaucoma treatments …

The Unconventional Diabetic

November 11, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

If you are caught somewhere in the middle, it is going to be perplexing to many people; especially if you are in your twenties, or even younger.

There is an unfortunate trend in modern society. We are seeing Type 2 diabetes afflicting our youth at unprecedented rates. People are getting this form of diabetes at younger ages. What was once an anomaly is now uncommon, but still prevalent nonetheless. If you are an unconventional diabetic, you are part of this group and unfortunately this trend.

If you are a young diabetic with Type 2, it is almost certain you are overweight and eating a poor diet. It is likely you consume a high volume of sugars. And it is not just sodas, although they are a common cause of concern for many young diabetics.

In some ways, unconventional diabetics are at higher risk. If you have Type 2 diabetes at …

Eczema Nightmare

November 11, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

FACING THE CHALLENGE – The uninvited guest is eczema; and it challenges you. It makes you angry, frustrated, and causes pain and shame. You feel like hiding and no one seems to truly understand what you are going through.

Yes, it is scary and messy because of all the creams, concoctions, itching and scratching. I have friends with eczema and I have seen their suffering. The challenge makes you feel powerless and close to despair and very disappointed.

FIGHTING BACK – But how do you do fight back?

  1. By refusing to accept the status quo; you must refuse to accommodate.
  2. Stand Your Ground and fight. These challenges make us uncomfortable, but you must stand your ground. Perhaps you are asking: Is there a natural healing for eczema? I must say that many people have found that healing quite easily.
  3. Keep searching; I have lost count of

Underweight and Overweight

November 10, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

To say that overweight is the result of overeating is like saying that a fire is the result of a match. Who struck the match? What caused the overeating? Overeating is not a cause but rather a result. Have you noticed how your eating habits vary when you are occupied and when you are not occupied: when you are lonely and when you are not; when you are tense and when you are relaxed? The busy, satisfied and relaxed people of the world are rarely overweight. The idle, lonely and nervous people frequently are.

When you are not occupied and feel that you should be, you eat to excuse your idleness. (“I’ll do it after supper – after I have a sandwich – as soon as I’m through eating – one must eat, you know.”)

When you are lonely, you eat to replace the satisfaction of friendship. When you are …

Symptoms of Hand Eczema

November 9, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

As its name suggests, the dry form eczema results in dry, fractured skin, with telltale little cracks on fingertips. Household work, such as cleaning or frequent water exposure, aggravates the symptoms and can prolong the healing process. Occupational factors may also attribute to the worsening of symptoms, as professions that require frequent hand washing (medical professionals, chefs, and barbers) are more prone to dry form eczema. Even the weather plays its part: a dry, cold winter makes skin feel dryer than during more humid parts of the year, resulting in further cracking of the skin surface.

Unfortunately, drinking lots of water will not sufficiently hydrate skin and is unlikely to improve hand dermatitis. The most effective way to deal with this chronic skin condition is to moisturize your skin. An ideal moisturizer for hand eczema performs three functions: it intensively moisturizes dry skin, it repairs damage of the skin barrier, …

November 8, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Body Mass Index (BMI) is used to determine one’s body weight. It is calculated metrically and measured in weight divided by height squared.

Drugs That Help Curb Alcoholism

November 6, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Topirimate (Topomax)

It is an anticonvulsant, mood-stabilizing drug that can help reduce alcohol cravings. Topirimate works by reducing brain levels of neurotransmitter dopamine and potentially resetting the brain’s chemistry. Dopamine creates pleasurable sensation which is akin to the ones alcoholics derive from drinks.

But it also has certain side effects, like causing numbness and tingling sensations in the hands and feet, confusion, difficulty concentrating, headache, nervousness, mood swings and drowsiness. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued fresh warnings, indicating the occurrence of cleft lip and/or cleft palate in infants when exposed to Topirimate during pregnancy.

A 2008 research revealed that Topirimate works wonders by reducing the body mass index (BMI), all liver enzyme levels, cholesterol levels, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. It was found that Topirimate significantly decreases obsessive thoughts and compulsions about using alcohol. It also immensely contributes to a patient’s well-being, improves quality of life, …

Decompression Back Belt

The Decompression Belt

The Decompression Belt is a device greatly effective for healing a sore back. And the best part is that when you use the Decompression Belt, you require no external assistance for the same.

The belt is based upon the principle of physical therapy for the spine, and comes with a manually operated air pump. On inflation the Decompression Belt rises vertically in height. This heals the back by multiple mechanisms.

  1. It massages, or tractions the back.
  2. As the belt rises in height, it decompresses, or creates more space between the vertebrae. This simply reverses the effect of gravity and our posture, so the back can relax.
  3. The Decompression Belt takes the weight of the upper body off the lower back, which is known to be the underlying cause of backache in most cases.

You can put the belt on and carry on with the activities that were …

Types Of Obesity Surgery

November 3, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Because dieting doesn’t work! About 90 percent of people regain some or all of the weight they lost while dieting in less than one year. We can argue all day and night about which diet might possibly be effective, but the fact is that only obesity surgery offers a permanent solution to the problem. With that in mind, here are three of the most popular types of weight loss surgery.

Adjustable Gastric Banding

In this procedure, the surgeon uses a band that squeezes the stomach into two much smaller sections: a small upper pouch and a larger lower one. Still connected by a tiny passage that slows the emptying of food, patients can no longer eat as much or as quickly as they once did. On average, most can only swallow half a cup of food before feeling full.

Advantages: Much simpler and safer than a gastric bypass, this procedure …

Carrots: These portable vegetables are perfect for on-the-go snacking. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, a carotenoid pigment which is an essential precursor for vitamin A.

Theory of Immittance Audiometry

October 31, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Immitance in measured in compliance, compliance is the movement of the tympanic membrane. This is done by stimulating the ear by a pure tone and a consistent intensity. Then the sound pressure level is measured. This measurement is then used to determine the impedance (how well the energy flows though the system) of the middle ear and the tympanic membrane and everything that is attached to it. The immittance of the ear is derived from a few sources of mechanical and acoustical stiffness, mass and resistance. The stiffness component comes from the volumes of air in the outer ear and middle ear spaces, the tympanic membrane, the tendons and ligaments of the ossicles. The mass come from the ossicles, the ear drum and the perilymph. The resistance is introduced by the perilymph. The impedance of an object is dependent of frequency. The formula for determining impedance is the square root …

About Backache and Its Causes

October 29, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

The back comprises of various interconnected structures, and these are our muscles, bones and joints, and also tendons and ligaments. The vertebra is the primary support structure in our spine, and is formed by 24 smaller bones, which are also known as the vertebrae. Towards the lower end of the spine are sacrum and coccyx, wherein the sacrum is attached towards the front to our pelvic bones.

In essence, backache is caused when one or more structures in the back are affected, and these could be bones, cartilage, muscles or even spinal cord.

In human beings, the posture is erect, and it has been created in a way such that we are able to withstand the gravitational force. But as a direct outcome of the erect posture, the back becomes more susceptible to wear and tear, strains or even fractures.

Flexibility in our backs enables mobility, and there are a …

Effect of Loud Music on the Ears

October 29, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

The worst thing is tinnitus that generates constant ringing or noise in the nerves that is not related to anything in the environment. It is a malfunction of the hearing mechanism and the main cause is loud noise.

This can be from chain saws; music; drills; machinery; rock concerts; and so on. A friend of mine acquired it from being in the army and the guns he had to use. It is doubtful whether soldiers would be compensated for this condition when it occurs after they leave the service.

People who work with loud noise are risking their hearing and many do not know it. While it is common to have it playing in shops the assistants are unaware of the risk they are taking. Likewise, customers who have to put up with it while shopping are also in danger.

This is a general health hazard and one that governments …

Treatment: Correcting your posture, avoid staying in one posture for a long time, taking frequent breaks, spinal muscle strengthening

If your walking pattern has changed

Cause: This might be a symptom of one of your discs slipping out of your vertebral column. A common indicator of this is when your gait is stooped and crooked (tending to one side), which happens because your spine is unable to bear weight on one side. The severe muscle …
