It’s that time of year again! The holidays are beginning for many families, and the rush is on to find that perfect gift. Whether you’ve gotten all of the presents long ago, or you are still in the “research” phase, it’s a good idea to have safety a priority in addition to fun.
Getting presents for kids can be really easy, or quite tricky. You have to think about age appropriateness, trends, components, to name a few considerations. Not sure what to do? It’s okay, here are few tips.
How would you answer? When is flu season? You might have heard that it begins in December and often lasts through February. While that’s generally true, it’s also true that the beginning and end of the season are unpredictable. In fact, sometimes it can begin in the fall and continue through spring.No matter the time of year, though, no one wants to end up with the flu. Coughing, chills, body ache and fever really don’t sound pleasant, do they? So what can you do to make sure that you’re spared for one more season? Get vaccinated.
Did you know that November is Bladder Health Month ?
Bladder health isn’t something that’s talked about openly or often. Yet, it’s very important. The ultimate goal of Bladder Health Month is to help people speak more openly about it, improve their overall bladder health and raise bladder cancer awareness.
When we think about bladder health it raises the question: What important things do you need to know on this subject of bladder health? Two issues that you should be aware of are first, urinary incontinence and an overactive bladder (OAB), and what are worrisome symptoms that I should talk to my doctor about.
Perhaps you’ve just eaten a good meal. Now, though, you’re in pain. There’s a sharp, burning sensation in your chest that won’t seem to go away. In fact, it gets worse when you bend or lie down. What’s wrong? Most people would answer “heartburn.” That’s correct.
It’s interesting that the word heartburn is often used synonymously with the terms acid reflux and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). However, these terms actually have different meanings.
Acid reflux is a common health condition that ranges in severity. GERD is a long-term, more serious form of that condition. And heartburn is a symptom of both. It’s important to know the difference so that you know what action to take to preserve your health. So when you start to feel “the burn,” is acid reflux to blame or GERD? Further, what can you do about it?
It’s no secret. Everyone knows that smoking kills. Yet, more than 35 million people in the U.S. smoke . Why? Why do so many people pick up and maintain a habit that’s estimated to take a whole decade off of a person’s life?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affects millions of people in the U.S. In fact, it’s the third leading cause of death, resulting in tens of thousands of lives lost yearly. As if this isn’t sad enough, it’s made worse by the fact that COPD is often preventable and treatable.
What can you do to prevent yourself and others from falling victim to the grips of COPD? Read on to find out. Before you can learn to protect yourself from something, though, you need to know what you’re up against. Hence the question: What is chronic obstructive pulmonary disease?
