Oral thrush.

Best Blogger Tips
oral thrush
Oral thrush is a fungal infection wherein the fungus Candida albicans grows unchecked in the lining of your mouth. It can cause creamy white lesions. Typically you’ll find them on your tongue or on the inside of your cheeks. They can be painful, and might bleed if you scrape the white stuff off them or brush your teeth. It can also spread to the roof of your mouth, your gums, and down your throat.

It can happen to anyone but is more common in babies, toddlers, older adults and in people with compromised immune systems, in babies the infection is referred to as baby thrush. Oral thrush is a minor problem for healthy children and adults, but for people with weakened immune systems, oral thrush can be a serious problem.

In Babies, oral thrush may clear spontaneously without treatment and may be prevented by sterilizing all feeding equipment and mouth toys.  It's been suggested that by giving the child sterilised water immediately following a milk feed, residual milk in the mouth is rinsed away, reducing the population of candida within the oral cavity.

Thrush can make the mouth so sensitive that it's impossible to perform regular oral hygiene. Use a very soft toothbrush. It can often help to rinse the mouth with a diluted solution of 3 per cent hydrogen peroxide. 

 This will help you:
  • Rinse your mouth regularly.
  • Eat fresh-culture yoghurt with lactobacillus, acidophilus or bifidobacterium.

If symptoms persist, visit you doctor.

Best Blogger Tips

    Basic Health checklist for woman at age 40

    Best Blogger Tips
    All women need regular medical check us. As we are getting older.

    • Pap smear - once a year
             If you are active in sex life you must visit your ob-gyne. Cervical cancer was once the most common cause of cancer death among women. Thanks for the pap smear, that number has dropped by 75 percent over the past 40 years. Now that the vaccine for cervical cancer is available, grab this opportunity!

    • Cholesterol level-check every five years
             Without hormone replacement, a woman's risk of heart disease begins two to three years following menopause.

    •  Blood pressure check regularly
             Heart disease kills more than half a million women a year.

    •  Mammograms- yearly, beginning age 40
             One in nine women will develop breast cancer, but early detection can increase your chance to survive.

    Food Myths

    Best Blogger Tips
    The truth and nothing but the truth.  So help you eat.
    Sugar makes kids hyperactive- It only seems that way.
         There's no specific evidence that excess sugar causes children to become hyperactive.  It probably seems that kids  are overexcited when candy and other sugary treat take center stage.

    Grapefruit increases your metabolism- Nothing doing. 
         Grapefruit doesn't increase your metabolism nor does it burn off fat in the body.  However, grapefruits, like most fruits and vegetables, are packed with nutrients.  They are also a great low-calorie, low fat snack any day of the week.

    Gelatin makes your nail hard. - No. it doesn't.
         gelatin may be great, but forget it as a way to strengthen your nails.  A balanced diet with adequate  amounts of iron, vitamin C, folate and other V vitamins is probably your best bet for your healthy nail growth.

    Fasting flushes out impurities and toxins.  As if.
         There is no evidence to support this claim.  Your body is designed to process food  and remove naturally occurring toxins such as ammonia which results from the breakdown of protein. For most people, one day fasts are neither healthful nor harmful.  But longer fasts threaten your health.  risks include dehydration, dangerously low blood pressure, muscle and organ tissue breakdown, and irregularity of your heartbeat.

    The only way to lose weight is to eat less.  Not so.
         one of the best ways to lose weight maybe to eat more- of the right foods.  A handful of peanuts has the same calories as seven cups of light microwave popcorn.  The difference is the amount of fat and fiber.  Foods that are low in fat and high in fiber (like popcorn).  Gram for gram, fat has more than twice as many calories as carbohydrate or protein.  Fat makes little food add up to a lot of calories.

    Brown or wheat bread has more fiber than white bread.  Wrong.
         Brown bread, wheat bread, and white bread are essentially the same.  They are made from refined wheat flour and have about one half gram of fiber in a slice.  The only real difference is color.  Manufacturer often add caramel coloring or molasses to the darker bread to darken  its hue.  If you want lots of fiber, buy whole-wheat bread. Look for the label.

    Brown sugar and fructose are more nutritious than regular sugar.  Wrong again.
         Brown sugar is just sucrose ( or table sugar) that has a little molasses added for a coloring.  Fructose (the kind of sugar found in the fruit) will still break down to glucose in the body.  So, fructose offers no real advantage as a sweetener unless it's still in the fruit so that you get the advantages of the other nutrients and fiber.

    Drinking hot tea with a meal will reduce the fat content of the foods. No such luck.
          No beverage will keep you from digesting and absorbing that fat you have eaten.

    How to prevent falls

    Best Blogger Tips
          Falls and injuries that result are a major health threat to older people.  Household hazards such as slippery bathroom floors or poorly lit stairwells are  the main causes of falling accidents. 
        Instead, a person's health may have more to do with how frequently they fall and injure themselves.  Weak  leg muscles, poor vision and medication that compromise balance may put elderly people at risk of falling.  Older people should ask their doctors about the possibility of lowering the dosage   of certain daily medications such as sleeping pills, antidepressants, and blood pressure that could impair a person's sense of balance or eliminating them completely.  Elderly are advice to wear flat, wide-toed shoes. Eat calcium rich foods and take calcium supplements. They can have walking stick to help them balance while walking.    Those elderly staying at home need a helper to assist her/him in daily routine. It is very tasking to have elderly at home but as a Filipino tradition we take care to them till they will expire.
