Weight Loss

Jul 28, 2016 5:33:04 PM

There are literally hundreds of diets and products that claim to be the answer to weight loss. However, the basic equation for losing weight never changes. In order for an individual to lose weight, energy intake must be less than energy expenditure. This goal can be achieved by decreasing caloric intake (dieting), and/or by increasing the rate at which calories are burned (exercising). Most individuals will begin to lose weight if they decrease their caloric intake below 1,500 calories per day and do aerobic exercise for 15-to-20 minutes 3-to-4 times per week.

 

What causes Weight Gain?

Weight gain is often tied to resistance to the hormone insulin. As fat cells in the abdomen grow in size or number, they secrete a number of biologic products (e.g., resistin) that dampen the effect of insulin, impair glucose utilization in skeletal muscle, and promote glucose (blood sugar) production by the

Varicose Veins

Jul 28, 2016 5:28:30 PM

What is Vein Health? Veins are fairly frail structures. Defects in the wall of a vein lead to dilation of the vein and damage to the valves. Normally these valves prevent blood from backing up, but when the valves become damaged, blood pools and causes the bulging veins known as varicose veins. Varicose veins may be without symptoms or may be associated with fatigue, aching discomfort, feelings of heaviness, or pain in the legs. They may also be associated with fluid retention (edema), discoloration, and ulceration of the skin may develop.

 

What affects Vein Health?

The following factors can lead to poor vein health or varicose veins: genetic weakness of the vein walls or their valves; excessive pressure within the vein due to a low-fiber-induced increase in

Ulcers

Jul 28, 2016 5:16:21 PM

What causes an Ulcer? Even though duodenal and gastric ulcers occur at different locations, they appear to be the result of similar mechanisms. Specifically, the development of a duodenal or gastric ulcer is a result of some factor damaging the protective factors which line the stomach and duodenum such as too much gastric acid, the bacteria Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and various drugs, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and prednisone.

 

What dietary factors are important in an Ulcer?

Food allergy appears to be a primary factor in many cases of duodenal or gastric ulcers. A diet that

Stress

Jul 28, 2016 5:14:33 PM

What is Stress? Stress is defined as any disturbance—e.g., heat or cold, chemical toxin, microorganisms, physical trauma, strong emotional reaction—that can trigger the “stress response.” The stress response is composed of three phases: alarm (fight or flight), resistance, and exhaustion. These phases are largely controlled and regulated by the adrenal glands. If stress is extreme, unusual, or long lasting, the stress response can be overwhelming and becomes quite harmful to virtually any body system.

 

What causes Stress?

Stress is part of life. According to Selye, the father of stress research, stress in itself should not be

Sleep

Jul 28, 2016 5:12:44 PM

What is Sleep Quality? Sleep quality refers to a combination of easy induction of sleep, sufficient time being spent in the deeper levels of sleep as well as REM (rapid eye movement sleep), and adequate total sleep time.

 

What affects Sleep Quality?

The biggest challenge to sleep quality is insomnia. There are two basic forms of insomnia. In sleep-onset insomnia a person has a difficult time falling asleep. In sleep-maintenance insomnia a person suffers from frequent or early awakening.

 

The most common causes of insomnia are psychological: depression, anxiety, and tension. If psychological factors do not seem to be the cause, various foods, drinks, and medications may be

Prostate Health

Jul 28, 2016 5:11:03 PM

What is Prostate Health? The prostate is a single, doughnut-shaped gland about the size of a walnut that lies below the bladder and surrounds the urethra. The prostate secretes a thin, milky, alkaline fluid that increases sperm motility and lubricates the urethra to prevent infection.

 

There are two main conditions that affect the prostate. One is prostate enlargement, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Almost every man will develop an enlarged prostate if he lives long enough. BPH is not cancer and is not life threatening. The other condition, prostate cancer, is much more serious. It can cause symptoms similar to those in BPH, but it can also spread to other parts of

High Blood Pressure

Jul 28, 2016 4:01:59 PM

Blood pressure refers to the resistance produced each time the heart beats and sends blood coursing through the arteries. The peak reading of the pressure exerted by this contraction is the systolic pressure. Between beats the heart relaxes, and blood pressure drops. The lowest reading is referred to as the diastolic pressure. A normal blood pressure reading for an adult is: 120 (systolic) / 80 (diastolic). Readings above this level are a major risk factor for heart attack and stroke. High blood pressure readings can be divided into the

Cholestrol

Jul 28, 2016 3:41:56 PM

Cholesterol is a fatty substance in the body that serves several vital roles. It is a building block for various hormones and bile acids; and it plays a major role in stabilizing cell membranes. While proper cholesterol levels are important to good health, the evidence overwhelmingly demonstrates that elevated blood cholesterol levels greatly increase the risk of death due to heart disease.


Cholesterol is transported in the blood by lipoproteins. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is responsible for transporting fats (primarily triglycerides and cholesterol) from the liver to body cells, and elevations of LDL is associated with an increased risk of developing atherosclerosis, the primary cause of heart attack and stroke. In contrast, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) is responsible for returning fats to

Bone Health

Jul 28, 2016 3:16:56 PM

The biggest concern regarding bone health is avoidance of osteoporosis, which literally means “porous bone.” Osteoporosis involves both the mineral (inorganic) and nonmineral (organic matrix, composed primarily of protein) components of bone. Bone is dynamic living tissue that is constantly being broken down and rebuilt, even in adults. Bone health is best determined by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) a technique that measures bone density.

Blood Sugar Control

Jul 28, 2016 3:15:58 PM

The body strives to keep blood sugar (glucose) levels within a narrow range. Too high or too low blood sugar levels can have serious consequences. One of the key hormones in blood sugar control is insulin. In response to a rise in blood sugar after a meal, the pancreas secretes insulin into the bloodstream to help drive the glucose into the cells. 
It is widely accepted that a diet high in refined carbohydrates (sugars) is the most important contributing factor to loss of blood sugar control. Such a diet leads to the cells throughout the body becoming less sensitive to insulin to produce a situation known as insulin resistance. 
Insulin resistance often leads to obesity and type 2 diabetes. It is also a major underlying factor in a wide array of chronic health conditions including heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and macular degeneration. Every effort should be made to maintain proper blood sugar control to prevent insulin resistance.
