Are you Drinking Enough water?

Best Blogger Tips
  http://www.equinox-praise.com/EquinoxEQ-10CountertopWaterFiltrationSystem.files/FaucetFreshWaterThruHands.jpg Do you know that water, the colorless, usually flavorless liquid most of us take for granted, is actually the basic element of good health.  While water does not directly provide energy by itself, it is essential to all cells and processes that do provide energy to our body.

 
 In importance, water is second only to oxygen.  An average person can live for about two to four months with out food but only three to five days  with out water.

For some information: Approximately two thirds of a persons body weight is water-- our blood is 82 percent water and both our brain and muscles are 75 percent water.  This is why drinking enough glasses of water a day helps our body function efficiently.

 Whatever our body loses water, dehydration sets in.  Mild dehydration may result in tiredness, headache, decreased alertness, and loss of the ability to concentrate.
 
 Dehydration easily develops when we drink too little or expend our water reserves too fast.  Although fluid loss occurs during hard physical work, sometimes even simple tasks like gardening, walking or riding a bike can result in a significant loss of fluid within a very short period.  The best way to avoid the unpleasant and dangerous effects of dehydration is to make a habit out of drinking water and sustaining a consistent amount of water in the body.  While needs may vary, the typical daily requirements of an adult is 1.5 liters a day in order to stay healthy.

 We can obtain water from a variety of sources, aside from the clear liquid, food also contains water.  Fruit juices, fruits, and vegetables are rich sources of water, as well as dairy products, such as milk cheese and meat!  The best source of fluid is still clear and clean water.  Bottled and tap are the two main classification of water fluid.  Deciding which to drink can be influenced by a lot of factors.  However if you want to drink a tap water, it is always best to purify or at least boil the water especially when it comes directly from faucet.


Water intoxication is rare but can occur with excessive water ingestion.  For example, five liters of water drunk with in a short period of time can cause swelling of the cells and result in drowsiness and convulsions..

 During summer , the hot and humid climate puts everyone a larger risk of dehydration.  The intense weather will cause our body to sweat a lot to get rid of  the excess heat and keep body temperature cool. At the same time we lose a lot of fluid in the process.  Thus, sweating can also make us dehydrated. Thus is why water should be drunk before you get to the stage of feeling thirsty during the summer months.

 Too much of everything all at once is bad, even water.  However, too little water is unhealthy and may cause problems like dizziness and heat stroke.  Remember that when you drink a glass of water, you are doing yourself a healthy favor and literally drinking for life.

8 Things you should know about depression

Best Blogger Tips
http://medicalimages.allrefer.com/large/exercise-30-minutes-a-day.jpgDepression easy to treat.  A combination of psychotherapy and medication is effective for 85 percent of patients diagnosed with major depression.  Treatment usually takes from four to fives months.  However, those with bipolar disorder or manic depressives, will probably need to stay on medication to control their mood swings.

More than half of alcohol or substances abusers are clinically depressed. 

Physical  Illnesses like stroke, heart disease, cancer and diabetes, certain medication (antihypertensive drugs), and even certain vitamin deficiencies can raise the risk factors of depression.  A good doctor will conduct a thorough physical check up and a renew of family history of health problems to determine whether such factors involved.

 Depression is tough to spot because some of its symptoms also occur in other illnesses.  For instance, neorological disorders, Parkinsons and Alzheimer's disease maybe  at the root of loss of interest or memory which depressives manifest.  Again, a good diagnosis must be sought to rule out other diseases.

 Exercise is highly recommended for those suffering depression.  Not only does it allwviate symptoms, example elevates mood relives anxiety, improves appetite, sleep, sexual functioning, and self esteem, it also helps normalize the chemical imbalances in the brain linked to depression.

 Some studies show a significant positive correlation between intelligence and likelihood of depression.  Possible explanation is that those higher intelligence are bettr at creating or imagining negative options, possibilities, outcomes,etc.

married people and those in ongoing intimate relationships have lower rate of clinical depression than those living alone.  But unhappy married people have highest rates.

 Mothers are less likely to suffer severe depression because their relationshiop with their children shields them from emotional damage.

The test that saves LIVES

Best Blogger Tips
http://static.open.salon.com/files/ovarian_cancer_ribbon1236778886.jpgOvarian cancer is known as the silent killer.  There are no early warning signs and by the time symptoms such as swelling and abdominal pain become apparent, the cancer will have usually spread the outlook is poor.  More than half the women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will die within five years.  The key to improving these survival rates is early detection, before the tumor has spread outside the ovary.  A special blood test may be the answer.  the blood test measures the levels of CA125, a protein that occurs naturally in the blood.  When ovarian cancer first starts to develop, the level of CA125 rises.  Regular blood tests will help spot this change early, prompting doctors to investigate further using technique such as ultrasound.


However, the test is not infallible.  Other medical conditions such as endometriosis, benign tumors, and infections can cause the levels of CA125 to rise.  Another problems is that only 70 percent of ovarian tumors increase CA125 levels.  I have read that scientists are working hard about the accuracy of the test.

Over the counter

Best Blogger Tips
http://www.medicalplazapharmacy.com/images/prescriptionservices-new.jpg 

Self medication of minor ailments is steadily increasing in popularity.  This is mainly due to do ability of a wider choice of safer, more effective, and inexpensive over the counter drugs.

Modern consumers are better educated and enjoy greater accessibility to more health information than ever before.  Advertising helps tremendously of course.  Consumers can make informed choices about what is available to them and where to buy it.

Its is significantly advertising affects self medication practices. But many believed that education  not advertising, that influences self medication practices.  Less educated people are less likely to self medicate.  But while the practices of self medication is clearly beneficial, it is not entirely risk free and consumers should be aware that OTC drugs do have side effects.




Most drugs can be classified as over the counter (OTC) or prescription only medication (POM). Drug classified and regulations differ from country to country but as a general rule  many ( but not all) OTCs must still be brought from a Pharmacy and some can only be sold to you under the direct supervision of the pharmacist herself.

In some region, despite regulations to the contrary, it is a simple matter to buy POMs from a disinterested drug sore clerk, over the counter and with out the doctors prescription.  If you are aware of this status of the medication that you are buying, ask the pharmacist herself not the drug store clerk.  To protect your health and wellbeing, never self medicate with prescription only medication and never take medication that has been prescribed for someone else.

If you are in budget, compare the price of your branded medicine wit its generic counterpart. Always ask the pharmacist to advise you.

To reduced the risk of side effects, read the label carefully and take as instructed.  Never take more than the recommended dosage or more often than directed.  Read the precautions.  You may find you need to avoid alcohol or other medications.  Some medicines can cause drowsiness ( especially antihistamines), so you'd be unwise to drive or operate machinery while taking them.

Many medicines shouldn't be given to children.  Kids aren't miniature adults, they metabolize drugs in a different way from us.

A pregnant woman should never take any medication without first seeking the advice of her doctor.  Some drugs has adverse effect on the developing fetus.  Ask your doctor for advice if yo are breastfeeding, because your  milk will contain traces of any drugs you take.
