Anger Management: How To Deal With Anger - Springhill Group Counselling - 1 views

  •  
    Accepting that you are wrong and compromising can be hard at first but consider that you cannot for all time get your way by being the loudest and most demanding. It does nothing but pushes people away. Are you afraid to let your guard down and allow people to truly see you for who you are? Other people are saying that if you wanted to achieve anything you must be aggressive, tough and in control. Anger can have a repealing effect and sends you spiraling out of control. Do you believe that no matter what, you always have to be right and opinions and viewpoints of others are a direct threat or challenge to you? Oftentimes we get mad because we observe behavior in someone else that we see in ourselves. This brings up sentiments that we do not desire to appear at or deal with. Underneath the anger may be hurt, disappointment, trauma and resentments. It's vital to become aware of how your body is reacting to feelings of anger. If you sense yourself get tense, "see red", find yourself clenching your fist and jaw, have trouble concentrating, find you're breathing to be rapid and fast then maybe it is really time for you to seek help. There are numerous other physical ciphers but these are a little you may notice. Source Link: http://springhillgroupcounselling.com/2013/05/08/anger-management-how-to-deal-with-anger/

Lower hypertension risk by two-thirds through lifestyle modifications - 3 views

  •  
    "Pursue healthy lifestyle parameters to cut the danger of high blood pressure" - springhill medical One of the most significant risk factors for cardiovascular disease that leads to an estimated 15 percent of all deaths worldwide each year is hypertension or high blood pressure. Micro-cracks in the inner lining of arterial walls are caused by an excessive blood pressure consequently leads to a series of serious health concerns. Patching materials are hurriedly pulled from blood circulation to fix the cracks; this is in a desperate attempt to prevent a potentially deadly hemorrhage. This may save you today and can continue a life for a while but over the course of several decades, plaque volume increases until blood flow is cut off to the heart and brain, or a clot becomes lodged in a narrowed artery. There are a number of important lifestyle factors according to medical researchers. These factors increase the risk for hypertension. They also found out that blood pressure can be returned to normal without the need for pharmaceuticals that are ineffective and wrought with deadly side-effects by modifying these actions. Healthy behaviors regarding alcohol, physical activity, vegetable intake and body weight reduce the risk of hypertension by two-thirds; this is according to the research team from Finland reporting to the European Society of Cardiology Congress. Prevention of hypertension is essential to improving health and preventing morbidity and mortality, they further noted. Smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity, obesity and consumption of vegetables are the five major cardiovascular disease-related lifestyle factors the have identified...

Healthier Taco Bell - 1 views

  •  
    Taco Bell was well-known as one of the purveyor of junk food and they wanted to start erasing that from our memory yet they are not ready to give up the chalupa yet. Wednesday, the chain announced that it's exploring ways to offer more "balanced choices," marking just the latest sign that the fast-food industry is trying to adapt to shifting tastes and upend the conventional wisdom that it only offers caloric indulgences. Taco Bell is testing a "range of products" this year, with national launches planned for 2014. He also said existing menu items could also be reformulated but noted that the chain would remain true to its brand, CEO Greg Creed said. "We're not going to walk away from who Taco Bell is," Creed stated. Taco Bell says, by 2020, 20% of its combo meals will meet nutritional guidelines for calories and fat set out by the federal government. People eat three meals a day, as a general thought, that means a single meal would have about a third of the recommended intake of about 2,000 to 2,500 calories. The company has no idea of what portion of meals currently meet those guidelines. Taco Bell is known for urging people to eat nachos as a "fourth meal" late at night, it is a bit of a contrary to the announcement and it gained a lot of skeptics. However it demonstrates just how much difficulty the broader industry is facing to overturn its greasy-food image as people more and more look out for alternatives they believe are healthier. The lower-calorie options were a key indicator of growth at restaurant chains between 2006 and 2011 from a report by the Hudson Institute earlier this year. The increase in customer traffic rise by 11 per cent by those chains that expanded while those that didn't saw traffic fall by 15 per cent, according to the public policy research group. As customer "tastes and needs" evolve, Creed said that offering more balanced choices would be critical in helping Taco Bell reach its growth targets over the next

Springhill group international medical news | is "Vaccine Diplomacy" the Right Prescrip... - 0 views

  •  
    http://springhillmedgroup.com/2013/02/cancer-prevention/ UNDISPATCH>> In an op-ed, published Thursday in the Los Angeles Times, Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, suggests that "vaccine diplomacy" could improve relations between North Korea and South Korea. From joint neglected tropical disease (NTD) treatment efforts to scientific alliances, Hotez argues that it could be "a breakout year for science and vaccine diplomacy to reduce the disease burden on the Korean peninsula and promote an unprecedented level of scientific collaboration." But according to experts who study the region, Hotez's vision may be a long shot. "DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or North Korea] is extremely distrustful and unlikely willing to expose themselves to lethal transmissible diseases in the name of science or anything else," says Roger Cavazos, an associate at the Nautilus Institute for Security and Sustainability, which is based in Berkeley, Calif. (South Korea is also called the Republic of Korea).

Do Infections Speed Up Alzheimer's? Springhill medical group reported>> - 0 views

  •  
    "An increase in brain inflammation, such as that caused by age, diabetes and obesity, is known to increase risk for developing Alzheimer's disease. Now scientists at UK's Southampton University are about to start a three-year study, using brain tissue generously donated by people who died with Alzheimer's disease, to see if inflammation caused by infections such as those of the urinary tract or chest, also speeds up progress of the disease." - medical news today In an announcement released on Wednesday, study leader Delphine Boche, Lecturer in Clinical Neurosciences at Southampton, says: "Many of the known risk factors for Alzheimer's, like age, obesity and diabetes, increase inflammation in the brain and we think that infections could be another risk factor." "There is already evidence that the immune system is on high alert in people with Alzheimer's and we think that an extra trigger, like an infection, could tip the balance and make immune cells switch from being protective to harmful," she adds. Alzheimer's Research UK has already put £300,000 into the project. The money is part of the charity's £20m investment in leading dementia research in the UK. The study started in January 2013, and will add to the growing pile of evidence that shows how the immune system is implicated in Alzheimer's disease. The Southampton team believes that in Alzheimer's, the immune system goes beyond its role as protector of the body and starts causing damage, like it does in an autoimmune disease. For their study, Boche and colleagues will use brain tissue generously donated by people who had Alzheimer's disease when they died. With reference to donors' medical records, the researchers will compare the brains of those who had infections when they died with those who did not. They will be particularly interested in immune cells known as "microglia", which go around mopping up cellular debris. They will use fluorescent tags to label the cells in the brain, and look

    Anti-aging without Surgery - Afraid to age but more afraid of knives and undergo surgery? We always look for the best things and best ways on how to avoid looking old. Have you ever wonder how to reclaim your youth while you do not have to go under the knife? For the millions of people that have sun spots and scars on the surface of their skin that become more prevalent with age, Zapiach said laser technology has vastly improved over the past decade, with patients seeing full results in about three months. Patients looking to turn back the hands of time have a non-invasive option that was most commonly associated with pregnancy: ultrasound unlike before when face lifts used to be the way to go for patients looking to tighten up the saggy, loosening of the facial skin that comes with age. All of us will age and as a part of aging process more and more physical features will vanish along the way. We lose volume in places like our eye sockets, cheeks and jaw line. The doctor has the solution for that, Fillers and injectables, although he said that those are temporary. It will last anywhere from six months to a year but will on depend on the one you choose. A non-invasive procedure that uses a patient's own fat is permanent though. But the doctor warned that not everyone is a candidate for non-invasive procedures. Dr. Zapiach also cautioned that patients with advanced aging may have to resort to surgical options. "Ultherapy actually has an indication to lift and tighten that area . . . as well as the neck and also the eyebrows," said Zapiach. "We'll see results in the cheeks that it will lift and tighten the cheeks and jowls as well."

Highly Pathogenic H5N1: Deadly to Birds and to Humans - 0 views

  •  
    Influenza A virus or more known to us as H5N1 is an avian (bird) flu, an influenza A subtype that has caused outbreaks in domestic poultry in parts of Asia and the Middle East. This is deadly to them and is considered "highly pathogenic" meaning highly disease causing. Although the virus does not usually infect people but infectious that these viruses occurred in humans. Most of these cases have resulted from people having direct or close contact with H5N1-infected poultry or H5N1-contaminated surfaces. There are three types of viruses, A, B, and C, that can cause flu to human. The type A is characterized not only to human but to other mammals and birds too. The virus transmitted by air. The type A virus is composed of two obligatory protein components. One is called hemagglutinin and is lettered H, and the other-neuraminidase (N). And there are 13 variants of hemagglutinin and 9 of neuraminidase, which then can characterized what type of virus it is. Making H5N1 is just out of the many possible variants of the virus structure. Many parts of the world has been infected by the virus such as Asia, parts of Europe, the Near East Africa, birds as well as half of the humans infected did not survive. The outbreaks infected poultry and wild birds, and humans who have direct contact with the infected animal. In most cases, healthy children and young adult and have resulted from direct contact with H5N1-infected poultry or contaminated surfaces were infected. The H5N1 virus does not infect humans easily and in general it remains very rare disease in people. If the person is infected it is not that easy to spread it to another human. However, there has been some human-to-human spread of the virus although it is limited. But scientists are anxious that H5N1 virus one day could infect humans then spread easily from person-to-person because viruses such as influenza have the ability to change. Although at the moment that the virus do not com
