Costs for Life Alert System

Written By: costa - Nov• 30•14

My mother lives alone in the house that my father built some 4 decades ago, and I really worry about her, because she is not in the best of health. In fact, she is a bit frail. But anyway, she wants to live alone and I am going to respect her wishes. I wish to look into life alert cost for having that sort of system installed. I am not sure what all it involves, but I think there is probably going to be some sort of cost for the hardware itself and then maybe a monthly subscription fee. (more…)

Doing What It Takes to Live

Written By: costa - Nov• 29•14

It’s our personal responsibility to do everything that we can in order stay and be healthy. As someone whose grandfathers died from heart attacks and whose Uncle is dealing with his own heart issues, it is up to me to make sure that I keep my heart in healthy working order. What does this mean for me? I have to exercise, eat a healthy and balanced diet as well as supplement my nutrition with doses of COQ10 – one of the most powerful natural supplements that you can find on the market in regards to keeping a healthy heart.

I have been taking supplements for a long time which has lead me to doing a ton of research on what kind of medications I should be taking into consideration. While supplements are a great way to reinforce what I might be lacking from my diet, it’s still incredibly important for me to keep a healthy diet. It can be difficult; I’m something of a foodie which often means that I find myself straying from the path that I have set myself on. (more…)

A Shortcut for Weight Loss

Written By: costa - Nov• 24•14

garcinia-cambogia-dr-ozs-verdict.jpgI have been doing a bit of research on the internet. I am looking for an actually effective way to lose weight without doing all that difficult and boring stuff that the Mayo Clinic tells you to do. Let’s look at this stuff for example, http://www.amazon.com/garcinia-cambogia-extract-potassium-capsules/dp/b00clrusf2/ that is something called garcinia cambogia. It is something, but I can not say what and it is hard to say what it does. They can make claims and they can say a lot of stuff, but they are not really bound by the law to tell the whole and absolute truth. So it is very very difficult to separate the truth of it from the myth associated with it. (more…)

Turmeric Supplements Are Getting Me Healthier

Written By: costa - Nov• 14•14

When my doctor diagnosed me with diabetes, I knew that I was going to change everything about my life. My aunt had diabetes, and I saw what not taking care of yourself did to her. I didn’t want to go through the same complications, so I decided to change my lifestyle. I went on a weight loss plan, and I also started eating healthier. I lost 10 pounds in just a few weeks, and my sugar levels were getting more stable already. When my aunt suggested that I get some turmeric pills with black pepper to help maintain my better levels, I wasn’t sure what she meant. (more…)

Women Can Get Hair Loss Solutions Too

Written By: costa - Nov• 06•14

It seems that people never really think twice when a male looks into products that are designed to counter hair loss, but women often get overlooked. This leads to many women not even knowing products are available for them, as most male products are simply not meant to work with the chemistry and body of a female. However, minoxidil for women is actually easier to get than ever using this website. It is also surprisingly affordable compared to what most people assume, as a 3-month supply of the topical solution does not cost much more than a good meal.

Of course, anyone looking into products like these will be right to remain skeptical. (more…)

I Have Been Playing Around with Moisturizers

Written By: costa - Oct• 24•14

I have been playing around with moisturizers for a bit and doing some experiments. That is part of this little bit of research that I have been doing for the blog. I have some questions about this and I really do not have the answers. I do not really know what the best rosehip oil for face moistening is, but obviously a lot of people have dry skin and they worry about their complexion. It is a tricky question, because you really can not make absolute conclusion, but instead you have to figure out what sort of skin you have and then the judgments that you make are only reliable for the other people who have skin that is like your skin.

I Cracked My Front Tooth

Written By: costa - Aug• 05•14

When I cracked my front tooth, I thought it was the end of the world. When I saw it in the mirror, I am not sure if my tears were more from the pain or the look I now had. I was being a bit dramatic, but that is just how I am. I knew that I needed to get to a Bend cosmetic dentist sooner rather than later, because there was no way I was going to show my teeth to anyone before getting it fixed. Since I am the kind of person who is always talking and smiling, that meant that I needed to find someone the same day it happened.

I was fairly new in town, so I had not yet established a dentist yet. I knew that I could ask around and get some suggestions, but I decided to just look online and see if I could find one that way. (more…)

All About Botox Jaw Reduction

Written By: costa - Oct• 03•14

Do you have a wide or large jaw? If you do, but you’re afraid or not interested in surgery, you might consider Botox jaw reduction. What this procedure does is make the muscles in your mouth that you chew with weaker. This will make your jaw look less wide than it does now. It helps to soften the way the jaw looks so you lose the masculine wide jaw. It gives your whole face a more pleasant shape. Many people have large jaws because they have big muscles in their mouth for chewing. To see if this is the case for you, bit down. Place your fingers along your face and feel your jaw right around your ears. Does it seem hard or big? If you said yes, then this type of jaw reduction would be a good choice for you.

Botox makes the jaws smaller by relaxing the muscles in the jaw. When muscles aren’t used as much they become smaller, which will make your whole jaw smaller. (more…)

Spent the Day Toting the Boss’ Wife Around

Written By: costa - Oct• 03•14

Spent the day toting the boss’ wife around. Of course the reason is pretty simple. Her car is in the shop and Mr Keen does not trust anyone else with his Jaguar. He has a really sweet vintage E type Jag and he loves that car at least as much as he loves his wife. Of course I work on it and he lets me drive it because he has rather little choice. It is not as though you can find a lot of expert Jaguar mechanics in Singapore. I spent the day at an aesthetic clinic in Singapore. They gave me the treatment, some weird stuff that uses ultrasound to make the wrinkles in your face less noticeable. (more…)

How to Get Rid of Warts

Written By: costa - Sep• 05•14

I am looking around for a way to get rid of this wart that I have grown tired of. I have been reading an article on Wartrol this morning and it is sort of interesting. Of course the usual way to get rid of a wart is apparently to go see a doctor and they will first freeze it, I am not sure exactly how they do that. After they freeze it then they remove it. I am thinking that perhaps it is designed for something different than what I have. I just have an ordinary wart, the sort that you see on the cartoon witches and so forth. This seems to be designed for HPV or genital warts. I believe that HPV means the human papilloma virus or something that. (more…)

Pulsatile Tinnitus is Enough to Make You Feel Like You Are Going Mad

Written By: costa - Aug• 29•14

I started to having ringing in my ears years ago. I can even remember when I was younger how if I moved my jaw certain ways I could generate a ringing in my ears. Then I started to lose hearing in one ear. Just a little over a long period of time. I first noticed on night when a fan was running in the bedroom. I was lying on one side and heard the fan plainly. Then I turned over and the sound was slightly muffled. Then I found myself looking for a pulsatile tinnitus cause. When that started, it was really scary and annoying.

Not only did I have the constant ringing in my ears, I would have days where I could hear the ringing accentuated with every beat of my heart. It was a whooshing ringing sound in my ears that corresponded with every contraction of my heart. All day and into the night. The only relief I got was when I was asleep. There would be brief moments of distraction, but invariably my focus would go back to that sound in my head only I could hear. However, I did learn that there are some forms of tinnitus a doctor can hear. Some forms of tinnitus can mean that something serious is going on, or that something serious is developing.

Had a Little Accident on Friday

It was not my intent to get into this accident, but it turned out to be sort of lucky. I was riding with one of the sales guys from another town and I think he was lost, but he would not admit that he was. At any rate he was looking around not going on, some guy plowed into the back of his car at probably sixty five or seventy five mile per hour. For me it was pretty good, because I lost a tooth, but I had already scheduled a dentist in Bella Vista to pull that tooth. (more…)

I Imagine Few People Even Know That Type 2 Diabetes is Reversible in Its Early Stages

Written By: costa - Aug• 07•14

I am not fond of doctors. I like to try to see if I can do something about things happening in my own body on my own first. If something bad happened, I would go to the ER or schedule an appointment I suppose. Not everyone is willing to run to a doctor anytime a symptom manifests. For some things, I suppose that attitude could be dangerous. However, I wanted to do the work to fix myself that I know the doctor would advise anyway. That is why I have been reading a lot about how to reverse diabetes today.

My mother was testing her blood glucose before our lunch together.

Working Towards My Graduation Slowly

Right now I am just taking a couple of courses over the internet. I needed to earn some money and also to not spend any money, so I am living in my Mom’s basement and working for a lady that she knows. It is sort of an odd job for me and I did not think that I was very qualified for it. I am at the counter of a boutique. There is stuff like rrose water facial toner and that sort of thing in front of me and I sell it all.

Types of Spindle Cell Sarcoma

Written By: contrac - Mar• 21•14

spindlecellsarcomaThe Spindle Cell Sarcoma is a type of cancer which appears when the connective tissue cells in the human body become malignant or cancerous and they have the shape of spindle. It is difficult to observe the apparition of this form of cancer, as it has symptoms which can lead to other serious diseases, as well. Some of the main symptoms are fatigue and malaise, but the symptoms can also be influenced on the growth stage of the tumor, the size and site of it. This is why this form of cancer is usually diagnosed in its last stage.

Usually, the malignant connective tissue cells are released by the human body due to an injury. These cells are different from the wounded site cells, which have the ability to divide and grow into a predetermined number fast, thing which allows a rapid heal in general situations. The cancerous cells grow very fast, but in contrary to the healed cells, they grow in uncountable number, which determines the forming of Spindle Cell Sarcoma. But besides injury, there are also other causes that can lead to the apparition of this disease, such as the genetic history and the inflammation.

This disease is mainly preponderant at people over the age of 40. There are more types of Spindle Cell Sarcoma. The Undifferentiated sarcoma of the bone is the type in which the cells do not show proper specialization. These cells do not belong to any other category of connective tissue cancerous cells and this is why they are named as undifferentiated sarcoma cells.

The Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is the type that mostly affects the arms and legs and it is a very rare form. Though, it appears more frequently amongst middle-aged adults. The Fibrosarcoma is the type that affects the thigh bone. The Leiomyosarcoma is a very rare form of Spindle Cell Sarcoma, so there is not too many information about it.

If the Spindle Cell Sarcoma is found in the first stage of this disease, the chances to be removed successfully are high. But this happens rarely, due to the fact that symptoms can lead to other diseases as well and they make the diagnosis of this disease come difficult. As the disease advances to stages two and three, it becomes more difficult to treat it. But unfortunately, this type of cancer is most often diagnosed only in its fourth stage, when there is not too much left to do. The survival rate is about 5 years.

The diagnosis of this type of cancer can be done by making certain tests, such as biopsy, X-ray, MRI scan or bone scan. The main treatments for this disease include surgery, radiology and chemotherapy. In certain cases, if the sarcoma becomes too severe to can be cured, the affected area is amputated.

As in any other type of cancer, in the case of Spindle Cell Sarcoma it is better to diagnose it as soon as possible. This can only be done if you visit your doctor from the first unusual symptoms you feel. And always try to prevent it by living a healthy lifestyle.
