Eye Stye

What are eye styes?

In the eyelid, we have three types of sebaceous glands that are producing the liquid or oil from the eyes. Anatomically, usually develop in the glands of Zeiss or Moll, or are produced in the meibomian gland.

Meibomian glands (the major m) is secreted by the fat layer of the tear, which prevents evaporation and dry eye.

Body Fats

Fat is not a bad thing—just overdone

Popular consensus to the contrary, the body does need some fat, especially up to the age of two. After that, the requirement is drastically reduced. However, most Americans continue the high fat diet well beyond the age of two, many well into their seventies, which is a little excessive.

Fueling Before Competition

An athlete’s main objective before an event is to have their glycogen stores filled with little to no food left for digestion.

Athletes train for countless hours to have their body perform at maximum efficiency at a precise time. All that training will be thrown away without the proper pre-competition nutrition. Studies have shown that what and when you eat prior to competition has a huge impact on performance.

Age-related Hematologic Changes

The percentage of marrow space occupied by hematopoietic tissue varies throughout iife, declining progressively from birth until about age 30, when it levels off.

After about age 70, it again declines progressively. Whether this second decline results from a real reduction in blood-forming elements or a relative reduction caused by an increase in bone marrow fat is not known.

Hemorrhoids and Nutrition Recommendations

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins around the anus and in the rectum (the very lowest portion of the colon) that may protrude from the anus.

The word hemorrhoid comes from hemo, which is Greek for “blood,” and rrhoos, “discharging.” They are also known as piles, from the Latin word pila, meaning “ball.” Hemorrhoids are very much like varicose veins in that they enlarge and lose their elasticity, resulting in saclike protrusions into the anal canal.

They are not tumors or growths. They can be caused, and aggravated, by sitting or standing for prolonged periods, violent coughing, lifting heavy objects (or lifting relatively light objects the wrong way), and straining at bowel movements (especially when constipated).

Aging

Aging, of course, is not an illness, but as you grow older your body does become more prone and vulnerable to disease. Our cells have the wonderful capability of renewing themselves by dividing, but it seems our genes dictate that any one cell can only divide so many times before it effectively dies, estimates vary from between 30 to 50 times.

Once a cell dies, new cells have to be made to replace them, and this is a process that demonstrably slows with age, and when the body no longer can keep up and replace those cells that have died with new, fresh ones, the result is aging.

Chron’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis 2

Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are closely related conditions and are sometimes referred to as inflammatory bowel disease/syndrome (IBD/IBS). Ulcerative colitis causes frequent or relentless inflammation of one or more sections of the intestine. This inflammation progresses into ulcers or open sores. Ulcerative colitis only transpires in the colon or large intestine contrasting Crohn’s disease, which can be extensive.

These chronic illnesses both Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease can become incapacitating to it’s sufferers. The facility for absorption of food by the intestines is hampered, which may lead to nutritional insufficiencies. Ulcerative colitis sufferers find that some foods intensify symptoms, and consequently they are forever experimenting to find foods that they can tolerate.

Recreation and Dehydration

Recreation and safety. Together? The fact is we should exercise responsibility at all times. What fun is it when something goes wrong? One avenue of safety is staying hydrated in warmer temperatures. Dehydration can set in easily, primarily due to exposure to sunlight and heat.

Water recreation can rob the body of hydration. Sunlight causes dehydration in two forms. First is the sun’s heat causing you to sweat. As the body attempts to cools itself by sweating, it can deplete hydration. Second, but not least, the sunlight reflects from the water’s surface making it more intense than on dry land.

Colon Cleansing

Colon cleansing is a method of cleaning the large intestine (or colon) with the help of various procedures such as colon irrigation, enema, herbal digestive pills that can be consumed orally etc. If you are wondering as to why so many procedures for colon cleansing, here is the reason: Colon cleansing is opted by people of various ages and physiologies. And depending on their physiology, each one responds to colon cleansing procedures differently.

And then, there is the constipation level, hardness of stool etc that are to be considered before choosing a colon cleansing method. However, what one needs to keep in mind before this is consulting a physician is critical as a physician alone can accurately determine what additive needs to be added to cleansing water, if at all it is needed.

Why Do So Many Doctors Support HGH? 2

There are literally thousands of studies showing that HGH supplementation is beneficial in a variety of age-related conditions and even certain diseases. It is used in patients with AIDS to boost their immune system. It is given to patients with congestive heart failure to improve the pumping action of the heart muscle.

Study after study shows that HGH is remarkably safe, yet amazingly effective in improving the overall health, quality of life, loss of fat, improved circulation, better immune function and many other wonderful changes in the body.

After six months of HGH supplementation, HGH-deficient adults involved in a study in Sweden lost 20% of their body fat. Most of this fat loss occurred in the abdominal area. Large amounts of abdominal fat are strongly correlated with increased incidence of heart attack, hypertension and diabetes.
