Health Fitness Articles

I have always been the kind of person to study something in depth before getting my feet wet. A lot of people call me obsessional, but I don’t see it that way. For me, it is all about getting all the information I need to so I can make the right decisions. That is why, when I decided to get in shape, I read all the health fitness articles that I could before I took my first step on the tread mill. By reading fitness and health articles until I felt like I was an expert, I was able to design the optimum workout for my needs.

Health fitness articles are one of the most popular reading subjects nowadays. Our culture is kind of a paradox if you think about it. On the one hand, we have bigger problems with obesity than ever before...

Manage Depression

Depression

It’s not an easy task to manage depression on your own unless you are able to determine the feelings are indeed depressed ones. Acknowledging the feelings of depression at an early stage will give you the upper hand on the situation and changing the surroundings is a good place to start. When you feel down and not quite sure why you are feeling this way is usually the first sign of depression. If you’re feeling the same or about the same the next day, it’s most likely the reason for those feelings. Acknowledging the feelings before reality is present will be the easiest way to detour them...

Summary: Make a good head start with your health and fitness profession by getting a sports certification.

Lifetime Fitness: On Your Way to a Healthier You

Lifetime Fitness: On Your Way to a Healthier You

Many people end up abandoning perfectly good fitness programs and weight-loss regimens before they even lace up their sneakers.

Why? Because in a world filled with fast food, instant messaging, and a five-second disease-tracking device, anything without a quick payoff goes against the grain of the typical American instant gratification ethic. While it would be nice to actually drop inches in just a few days like what most miracle ads proclaim, managing weight and losing weight through physical fitness is a slow and steady process that takes time and commitment.

Setting weight management goals for yourself can be a good motivator...

How To Get Rid Of Cradle Cap

Cradle Cap

You can get rid of cradle cap from the infants head by gently brushing the scalp with a soft bristle baby brush or a soft but new toothbrush, brushing the scalp in the same direction for a few minutes a day. Cradle cap is caused by an attributed hormone passed from the mother to the infant and causes a decrease in the immune system. Cradle cap is a result of foods that decrease the immune system. It’s hard to change a babies diet as the formula is their source of nutrition but mothers that intend to breastfeed have a better chance of the newborn not having cradle cap by avoiding the foods that contribute to cradle cap.

Cradle cap is not uncommon in infants and it usually lasts until 3 months of age, however, it could be visible up to the age of 4 years old...

Living With Diabetes Requires Special Attention

Diabetes Testing

Do you know someone who is living with diabetes? If you answered yes, you know living with diabetes requires special attention and you may have experienced some of the situations I will be discussing. For many years of living with and being next door to my parents who both had type I diabetes, it becomes a natural instinct to pay attention to their demeanor. My mother experienced many episodes of low blood sugar that required ambulance services.

It’s important to have a specified diet to follow to avoid fluctuation of sugar levels. Many foods that contain high carb content can be just as bad as eating sweets on a regular basis. The seasonings used plays a big part in the taste of the food but can also bring negative influences on the body...

Avoid Unnecessary Trips To The Hospital

monitor

Unless you feel that it’s an emergency, avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital. An emergency is a life-threatening situation in which you feel you may not live another day. Calling a nurse hotline is the first step that should be taken to find the relief you need for the situation, and calling within the first day or two that symptoms appear. I have a dear friend that recently had a situation, being afraid it was appendicitis, that was not addressed in the first 48 hours and by the third day, she was barely able to walk, and wasn’t able to go to work either...

Longer Healthier Hair That Shines

If you’re looking for longer healthier hair, according to the experts there are a few ingredients to be considered when selecting products used on your hair. Most shampoos are filled with sulfates that strip the oils needed for healthier hair and most people shampoo their hair on a daily basis and without using a conditioner. When shampooing the hair, only lather up the scalp and allow the suds to slide down the hair to remove the dirt and build up on the hair. I never thought about only adding shampoo to my scalp and not my hair. When I was a little girl and learning to shampoo my hair, my mother would always say, let me smell your head to see if it’s clean...

Blood Clots Were Passed

Blood Clots

Blood clots were passed after my friends’ menstrual cycle had ended and she was terrified. The day after her menstrual cycle had ended and no signs of blood, suddenly she began passing large blood clots, size of a golf ball and passed several before conferring with her doctor. After a couple of hours of passing clots and having lots of pain in her abdomen, she called her doctor to see if he was available to see her. He told her to come in at a certain time that was an hour after calling and performed many tests including pregnancy test which she really didn’t think was a possibility since she has just had a menstrual cycle even though she was horrified to think it could be a miscarriage and then a vaginal sonogram was performed.

To no avail, no acceptable reason was g...

Contacts Or Glasses Whats Your Preference?

Contact Lens

Contacts or glasses, what’s your preference? This has been an age-old question for many years. Wearing glasses prohibits the ability to wear sunglasses and for that reason, many people would prefer contacts. But everyone doesn’t really have an option since contacts aren’t suitable for some eyes. Being a contact lens wearer can be a challenge in the beginning but with the right determination, you will surpass the uncomfortable feeling and will be glad you did.

My friend Yvonne had worn glasses since she was in the second grade and when she became a senior in high school, she decided to get contacts. She wanted her senior pictures to look their best and not feel like she was hiding behind some glasses that she despised wearing...
