About Prostate Cancer

About Prostate Cancer Prostate cancer involves a malignant tumor that grows on a man’s prostate gland, which is located right beneath a man’s bladder in his digestive system. A man’s chances of getting prostate cancer increases after he turns 40 and he will need to monitor his health more closely. If a man has a family history of prostate cancer he is at risk of developing the illness and African American men in particular are more likely to develop prostate cancer than other ethnicities. Prostate cancer is also the common cancer among men in the United States.   Prostate Cancer Symptoms  One symptom is difficulty in urinating and this includes having weak urination. Another prostate cancer symptom is bleeding in the urine and some men with prostate cancer also have trouble with maintaining an erection.

Basic Information on the Gall Bladder

Basic Information on the Gall Bladder The gall bladder is the organ in the digestive system that helps you digest food and it works with the liver to do this. This is because the gallbladder connects the liver to the small intestines and it breaks down the food waste called bile that is produced in the liver and then the gallbladder stores this and it later travels to the small intestines. Some people develop gallstones in the gallbladder and this occurs when parts of the bile crystalize or when the gallbladder swells inside the body. When this happens you should visit the doctor immediately because depending on how bad the gallstone is, the gallbladder may need to be removed. Basic Information on the Gall Bladder  How to Determine if Gall Bladder is Not Working Properly  One of the symptoms of a poorly working gall bladder is when you experience pain in the stomach that never disappears. Some people may experience the pain every few months or years but you should still be on the alert just in case. Gallbladder inflammation is another symptom and in these cases you may experience pain not just in the stomach but also in the...

High Intensity Interval Training

High Intensity Interval Training Can  high intensity interval training be the answer you have been looking for? High intensity interval training or HIIT, is a regimen where you exercise at maximum for around twenty seconds and then have a rest or exercise at a lower rate. You repeat this a number of times. There appear to be many variations but the best one I have come cross for people who do not generally have the time to exercise properly is one that involves a high burst (on an exercise bike) for twenty seconds followed by 2 minutes of medium peddling, repeated three times and the exercise then repeated again every other day. So basically 1 minute of high intensity a day three times a week! High Intensity Interval Training Here is some background:- “A HIIT session consists of a warm up period of exercise, followed by three to ten repetitions of high intensity exercise, separated by medium intensity exercise for recovery, and ending with a period of cool down exercise. The high intensity exercise should be done at near maximum intensity. The medium exercise should be about 50% intensity. The number of repetitions and length of each depends on the...

Treating A Cold

Treating a Cold We all have experienced the symptoms of a common cold: coughing, sneezing and snotty noses. Along with this we also experience our parent’s home remedies for treating a cold. These remedies can range from the ordinary (chicken noodle soup) to the odd (gurgling tomato juice). However, new research is suggesting three new ways of treating a cold. Treating A Cold The study suggests that susceptibility to cold may be in your DNA. Telemores are the end pieces of protein and DNA at the edges of your chromosome. Short length in telermores has been linked to increased susceptibility to colds. The length of your telemores is predetermined by your genetics but there are still ways to lengthen them and improve your health. Researchers in the study believe that your life style has a great effect on the lengths of your telemores. Ways to do this are listed below. Meditation, meditation, mediation: sitting cross legged humming may not seem like a remedy for the common cold but research has shown that meditation increases telemorase. Telemorase is an enzyme that lengthens telemores and protects cells. Just ten minutes of meditation a day is a good way to start. Remember to...
