The Curly Toe: Causes and Treatment by Scott Kilberg DPM

Of the many conditions which result in a change in the shape or position of the toes, the curly toe stands out as a more unique deformity that is treated in a somewhat different manner than a standard toe deformity (like a hammertoe). This article will discuss this unique deformity, and ways to treat it effectively.

Due to a variety of reasons (but mostly because of one’s arch structure), the toes can gradually develop a change in their shape over the course of many years of standing and walking. The most common change is the development of the hammertoe, in which the first joint, or ‘knuckle’, of the toe pulls upward, while the middle of the toe flexes downward. Although rarely painful in and of itself, a hammertoe deformity can allow for excessive pressure from the top of a shallow shoe onto the toe. A corn will develop on the skin where the toe joint is prominent, which can eventually lead to pain. Another change that often develops is a rotation of the little toe towards the toe next to it. Often called a curly toe, this condition is the combination of a hammertoe deformity, and an actual inward rotation of the toe. The result of this abnormal toe position is usually a very painful corn that forms due to the pressure from the shoe on the toe, where the toe bone is now prominent due to the toe rotation. The difference between the corn that forms in this condition as opposed to that of a regular hammertoe is that this corn is less on the top of the toe than it is more along the side of the toe. The involved skin is still the ’top’ of the toe technically, but the corn appears on the side because the top of the toe has rotated to the side. In this case, not only does the top of the shoe irritate the corn, but the side does as well. A second pattern of corn can also form along side the outer edge of the nail where pressure from the ground builds up due to the toe’s rotation. This corn is often mistaken for an ingrown nail due to it’s closeness to the nail edge itself. Removal of the side of the nail in this case will only temporarily relieve the symptoms, as the toe pressure from the rotation will allow a corn to form again despite the nail edge’s removal.

The little toe is not the only toe that can curl inward. This can also be seen in the other smaller toes, although the fourth toe (the one next to the little toe) is the primary toe outside of the little toe to develop this. However, this toe does not tend to develop the same sort of painful corn as the little toe, due to the unique position of the little toe on the outside of the foot.

Treatment of this condition is fairly straight forward. One either conservatively lives with the condition or one has the toe straightened out surgically. Self-care with gentle filing of the corn with an emery board or pumice stone after bathing can flatten the corn and limit it’s potential to cause pain. Taping the toe out of a rotated position has limited benefit, and may actually cause additional discomfort. The use of a wider and deeper shoe seems to give the most benefit by reducing the external pressure on the toe. Padding the toe with gel, foam, or felt pads can provide some pressure reduction, although they need to be applied daily. Topical corn removers should be avoided as they contain skin acids that can potentially harm the surrounding good skin and create a chemical burn on the toe.

Surgery to repair this condition is possible, and is usually quite effective. This fairly simple procedure combines a fixing or straightening of the hammertoe deformity (by removing a small amount of bone near one of the toe joints), as well as a procedure to straighten out the toe rotation. Fixing the rotation can involve plastic surgery techniques to re-rotate the skin back around, or a technique to partially fuse the little toe with the base of the toe next to it to keep it stable and straight. The plastic surgery technique uses various skin incision orientations to effectively push the toe back into a non-rotated position. The fusion procedure removes part of the space in between the little toe and the fourth toe, and then stitches the skin together. Once this heals, the bases of the two toes will be as one. This has no effect on the way the foot functions in walking, and cosmetically is barely noticeable. The end result is a little toe that cannot rotate out of positionany longer. Recovery is fairly simple for both the bone and skin part of the procedure, with most people able to return to a normal shoe within three to four weeks. Complication rates are low, and the toe tends to stay in the corrected position for life.

The curly toe deformity is common, can cause discomfort in shoes, and yet is easily treated. Anyone suffering from this toe deformity should see their foot specialist (podiatrist) for evaluation and treatment options specific to their toe.

Aging Gracefully by Michael Logan

Is aging gracefully an oxymoron? Shouldn't we be raging against the night, to paraphrase an Irish poet?

I am 62, just started Social Security, and I am married to Julie, 15 years my junior, and I have an 11 year old son, Shane, and a 6 year old daughter, Hannah Marie.

My sister sent me an e-mail earlier this week including two video performances 50 years apart of a band called the Diamonds doing a song called "Little Darlin", I believe, and I felt a strong nostalgia for that time of my life, when my adventure was beginning, and that nostalgia has been a significant part of my emotional landscape in recent years, even as I handle the day to day aspects of being a Dad, and a husband, and a business partner to Julie.

There are dishes and laundry to do, and horn practice, and emotional meltdowns to handle, (some by the kids) and all the discussions that happen between husband and wife about holiday celebrations, which involve a certain level of stress, and then there are moments of appreciation for the beauty of our neighborhood and our safety and opportunity.

And then there are memories of parents and grandparents, and old friends from childhood scattered to the winds, and a longing to know what happened to them, and a thought about going upstairs to wake Julie before the kids get up, because who knows how long I (or she) will be around and I want her to know how much I love her. But instead, I am diligently building my new career.

And from my perspective, and supposedly, we older folks are better at seeing the big picture, I think about the incredible changes in the United States over the last 50 years, from the Kennedy assassination to Barack Obama.

Wait, did I just mention building a new career as an online entrepreneur?

I did, and that is perhaps the most important aspect of my aging gracefully.

Thirty years ago, I found myself in a situation where I had to chose to start over or die, and I did start over, and that is the most important lesson in aging gracefully for me.

I can start over even if I lose everything external to myself.

Part of that starting over involved some steps that needed to be repeated frequently, if not every day, so I learned to schedule regular practice, and as my new life unfolded, I undertook some other regularly scheduled practices which have impacted my ability particularly to be a Dad to small children, in other words, physical exercise, so that I can fling them around, or wrestle with the boy when he needs it.

So I have taken this experience of starting over and reiterated it several times, as a mid-life career changer, a late life father, and now as an online entrepreneur at 62. Some would say I have ADD, but I think I am flexible, and a book I read a couple of years ago, called The Brain That Changes Itself, backs me up.

Not too many years ago, no one knew of a concept called neurogenesis, which means that the brain grows new neurons, if I make the garden fertile, so to speak, so I see no reason not attend to the pillars of brain fitness which is what it takes to bring those replacement parts online.

Norman Doidge,MD, author of The Brain That Changes Itself, pointed me down a brand new avenue of exploration, which is another of the pillars, novel learning experience.

So The Key to Aging Gracefully is Brain Fitness?

Yes, if you want to age gracefully, then taking care of the pillars of brain fitness, which are physical exercise, good nutrition including lots of anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acid, good sleep, stress management, and novel learning experiences, are very important.

Taking care of those pillars keeps the brain growing new neurons, and forming new connections between neurons, so you will remember all those words you have learned at the moment you need them rather than hours later.

So check out Brainfit for Life written by Simon Evans,Ph.D. and Paul Burghardt,Ph.D. for your aging gracefully guide.

One of the things that Evans and Burghardt discuss is the dual n back task, and how research shows that regular practice of that can increase what is called fluid intelligence at any age.

Increased IQ? That will show them, won't it? There are some computerized brain fitness tools out there that I have tried and like. One has beenn researched in the IMPACT study, and I recommend that you read that study to expand your aging gracefully brain fitness file and remember the lyrics to all those anthems from your youth. (I am really starting to appreciate Tommy Dorsey).

Discover Ideas About An Adult Diaper by Rudy Silva

Do you work for an adult that has incontinence? Are you a disabled or elderly that has bowel incontinence? You can use special diapers to help you eliminate your worry or embarrassment. To learn about which diapers are available for you, read this article.

Adult diapers are designed to help people that urinating or bowel movement issues. Diapers are composed of layers of fabric like cotton or microfiber which can be washable or disposable. However, due to issues on health and environment, the cloth diapers are on a hot seat list.

The most common type of diapers used widely is disposable. Primarily, they are worn by infants up to their toddler years until they are trained to use the toilet for their toiletry needs. They can also be used by adults who suffer from incontinence or where access to toilet is not readily available.

The elderly people are among the individuals who find it convenient to wear diapers. But, care and precaution should be taken as rashes will develop if the diaper is not replaced as necessary.

Senior citizens who have disability in their physical and mental aspect may also wear adult diapers. These individuals need special attention and care, as they can not function well. At anytime, they may wet their bed, if they are always confined to it. They may wet their gown or clothing. if they are out on a field to have some fun or while having their meal.

Patients who have mental disability cannot be taught the proper way of have a bowel movement. In this case, having a diaper makes it convenient for everyone. Physically disabled may find it very hard to go to the toilet anytime they feel the urge, especially if it is in the middle of the night.

Patients who suffer from fecal incontinence and urinal incontinence are always confronted with the issue on how to do it properly. But with diapers, it assures them that the secretion is not done carelessly.

Although it may require the task of changing diapers, it is nothing compared to cleaning everything when secretion are done on a bed or on the floor. It also saves them from any embarrassment that they feel with it.

The astronauts also wear diapers because their working conditions are extreme: when they are in outer space, where gravity is always a challenge, toilets are not readily available.

But even normal people will find wearing adult diapers to be a necessity. In the Urology Journal published by BJUI International, a problem on bed wetting every night is still common even in 19 year olds! In fact, wetting problems are still a problem ranging from five year olds to nineteen year olds.

In choosing the right adult diapers, it is best to consider your needs or the patient’s needs. Diapers come in different absorbency capacity. At times, the absorbency quality plays an important factor in determining its price.

Choose the right size. Do not ever confuse the size of adult diapers with its capacity to absorb wetting. If you choose a size larger than necessary, there are chances of leakage. There are diapers that fit for every gender. Choose the ones that are correct to your gender.

How To Properly Do Doctors Appointments Online? by Rudy Silva

If you can’t connect with your doctor, you can now make doctors appointments online. Not all doctors are online for you to make your appointments. But this will all change as more and more doctors get online. For now here are some tips on how to make an appointment with your doctor, even when you can’t connect with them on the phone.

There can be no convenience as the chance to schedule a doctor’s appointments online. In our time, almost everything is done with the aid of technology. When used properly, technology such as the internet can help make life easier.

One of the regular annual activities is to visit our doctor. We have dentist and general physician. If we have special condition, we maintain or seek the medical help of the specialist such as the cardiologist, neurologist, and internist. If we have kids, then they have their own pediatrician. Sometimes, they too have different dentist than our own.

Before you have your chance to see the doctor, you have to book your appointment with the secretary or receptionist. Traditionally, this is done by calling the clinic and talking to a secretary or receptionist who will then make your schedule.

But at times, the telephone line is busy or if off line. Or, it is under repair. If you do not have a fax machine, then it would be hard to make the appointment, unless you call the doctor at home or on his mobile phone, or fax your letter seeking appointment. But this could be inconvenient, as it would take awhile before you can finally get your schedule.

As part of the medical professional’s effort to reach out to the public and to make their services readily accessible, many of these doctors signup for internet service, so their clients can make doctor’s appointment online.

There are two ways to do this. One, the clinic creates its own website. Whether the clinic has one or more medical professionals, it can post on its website the services that the clinic offers. It can post the specializations of each doctor in the clinic, the contact details including the address, e-mail account and telephone number whether local or Toll free.

The doctor’s website can allow anyone to make appointments. You can also specify how many persons will seek professional help. If the clinic is medium-sized or large-sized and has other clinics in other cities, county, or state, making appointment with the doctor can be narrowed down into choosing which clinic is the closest to you.

Another way to make the service of making a doctor’s appointment online available is by joining an association of medical doctors, which host its own website. These associations are very large and their website can specify their doctor-members in each area.

To make it easier to book an appointment with a specialist online, you will begin by choosing your area. Of course, you have to choose the clinic that is the most accessible to you. Then you choose the specialization; do you want to see a dentist? OB Gyn? Pediatrician?

Sometimes, you will include information such as your age, birth date, and address. A few websites offer the chance to fill out an insurance form to make things easier. But many people opt this out because they do not want to divulge too much information about themselves while they are still at the first stage of making doctor’s appointment online.

Tummy tuck is formally known as abdominoplasty, a cosmetic surgery that aims to help patients wanting to have a well sculpted and toned abdominal area. There are different types of abdominoplasty surgeries.

Cutting the skin between the belly button and top of the pubic hair is the first step that a tummy tuck surgeon does in performing abdominoplasty. Next is to tighten the muscles from the pubic bone to the ribs. The skin above the belly button is then stitched in place down to the pubic area.

To ensure that the belly button occupies its original position, it is brought out through the overlying skin. Patients undergoing this procedure will inevitably get tummy tuck scars. This is why it is important to choose the right surgeon. Choose only the one who enjoys the reputation of doing the procedure real good so that the scars it leaves are barely visible.

Just like any other surgeries, tummy tuck also carries with it some risks and normal side effects. But these can be avoided with the right selection of a very qualified surgeon who can do the job safely.

It would also help for patients to be candid enough in discussing their medical history with the chosen surgeon before undergoing the procedure. And in order to speed up recovery after surgery, patients should religiously follow the doctor’s specific instructions for a risk-free and speedy recovery.

Therefore, before you decide to undergo a abdominoplasty procedure, you should take a close look at some important matters pertinent to it. Your safety and the amount of money it would cost you should be taken with utmost priority. Hence, for you to fully enjoy the benefits of having to undergo this cosmetic procedure, it is essential to choose only the best tummy tuck surgeon.

Are You Putting Yourself at Risk? by Wolf Krammel

This rise in obesity should be taken as seriously as any infectious disease epidemic. Overweight and physical inactivity account for more than 300,000 premature deaths each year in the U.S., second only to tobacco related deaths.

Clearly, many Americans are struggling to maintain a healthy body weight, which is putting them face to face with serious psychological, emotional, and physical health problems. Beyond the psychological and emotional hardships that overweight adults and children experience, is the physical toll that excessive weight takes on the body. Research studies indicate that a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 27 is directly correlated with increased incidence of disease and death. (See the next section to determine your BMI). Sadly, on average, people with obesity do not live as long as non-obese people. Obesity is the leading cause of preventable death in this country. You should be encouraged by the word "preventable" in the previous statement because even small reductions in weight can reduce your risk of early death from obesity.

Some of the medical problems associated with obesity that you should know about include heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, gall stones, cancer, and osteoarthritis.

Heart disease is one of the top risk factors associated with obesity. Research demonstrates that the risk of heart disease is doubled in people with moderate obesity compared to normal weight individuals. Fortunately, weight reduction reverses the cardiovascular disease process and lessens the associated risk factors.

Increased body fat, especially in the abdominal area puts pressure on the chest wall thereby preventing the lungs from holding the maximum volume of air required for efficient respiration. Inefficient respiration can be damaging to the body and cause even more problems for individuals who already have some form or respiratory or lung disease.

Diabetes is a disease characterized by high blood sugar levels, which are caused by decreased insulin production and/or decreased sensitivity to insulin. Initial symptoms of diabetes include excessive thirst and frequent urination. The long-term complications related to untreated diabetes include eye degeneration, neurological disturbances and heart disease. Clearly, excessive weight and lack of exercise are closely associated with the development of diabetes, as evidenced by the fact that ninety percent of adults with adult-onset diabetes are overweight or obese. Weight loss and exercise reduce fasting blood sugar levels, thereby decreasing the risk of diabetes-related eye, heart, and neurological problems.

If you are female, middle-aged, overweight, and eat a high-fat, low-fiber diet, your chance of developing gallstones is high.

Although it is not yet known if obesity causes cancer, cancer rates are higher among people with obesity. In addition, the mortality rates for colorectal and prostate cancer is higher among obese men than normal weight men. Likewise, obese women have higher rates of death from endometrial, breast, ovarian, and gallbladder cancer than their non-obese counterparts. As is the case with heart disease and obesity, it appears that the diet and lifestyle choices that promote obesity can increase your risk for cancer.

Excess body weight puts strain on the skeletal structure of the body, and many overweight people experience chronic pain in the muscles, bones, and joints. For example, increased abdominal fat can cause lower back pain and poor posture.

Overweight and obese people also have altered hormone levels. In men, obesity results in decreased testosterone levels, which can cause their sex drive to plummet. Conversely, obese women have increased estrogen levels, due to the fact that fat cells produce estrogen. Elevated estrogen levels increases the risk for breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and other hormone-dependent diseases.

As you can see, being overweight takes a tremendous toll on your health. However, it is important to remember that even a small reduction in weight can greatly decrease your chances of developing the obesity-related diseases.

When Advertising Dentists Should Choose A Dental Directory That Targets Closely Their Own Location by Jim Peterson

Today, people would rather go online, than use their cars to search for something. After all, google will get you there faster, with no gas consumption, wear and tear on your car and tires, and the worry of finding parking. Plus the main benefit to most people is the convenience of saving time. Precious time that could be productively used elsewhere. Then all it takes is an email or a phone call and your worries are sorted out.

People prefer using the internet as their source of all information to written media. That is not to say that books and newspapers are outdated. People are trying to save trees and cut down on the usage of paper. So as a dentist it is the wise thing to do, being listed on a specialized dental directory. And not just a generic one, one that helps target the traffic specifically to your area.

The medical and dental profession are making more and more use of directories which direct people to their practices as cities grow larger and the population expands.

When advertising in a specialized web directory, dentist should choose one this is targeted as closely as possible to their own location. It is no use advertising in a generic dental directory as the traffic will not get directed to your locality.

Non targeted directory listing dentists:

For the directory targeted traffic to reach your city or locality it makes sense as a dentist with a practice in Toronto for instance to have the this url :

Targeted specialized Toronto dental directory :

Dental practices based in Toronto should therefore choose the second option as it targets your area specifically.

Dental and medical directories are great as people new to an area will search these first to find a local dentist or doctor in their area. They are too new to the area to ask neighbours and Google really finds everyone today. But in a non-area targeted directory a search for a dentist will bring up every dentist in the directory. It is best to help people to reach you faster, by have a specialised area-targeted dental listing to aid in the search.

Google also searches the directories first when a search is done for a medical professional listed in such a directory and Google will also find your area faster, which is better than having the whole directory brought up, then having to wade through more search options, and maybe more. By this time the person looking to have dentistry work done by a dentist in Toronto has given up, or been distracted by something else that has caught his eye.

Avoid Vendor Lock-In With Your Virtual Medical Receptionist by Jim Peterson

Patient data is something not to be underestimated for, along with appointment scheduling, it is what every medical practice relies on. Furthermore, because of its private nature, patient data is highly protected by both the doctor and the medical receptionist, so that it won't fall in the wrong hands.

Now, because there are many doctors out there who have decided to make us of certain tools to simplify their job, such as virtual receptionists and online schedulers, there are a few factors that ought to be kept in mind when choosing the company that actually sells these в€œtoolsв€.

As you surely know, vendors aim to sell a certain product and, depending on their ambition, their interest in your work and success may be more or less в€œconditionalв€.

That means their aim is to have you buy what their company sells and will do whatever they can to keep you from switching to one of their competitors in the future.

And here comes the so-called vendor lock-in. A vendor lock-in is a strategy used by some vendors to make it possible for you to switch from someone else's software to theirs, while you won't be able to do the opposite without facing significant switching costs and/or losses.

For instance, online schedulers enable patients to book their appointments right from your practice website. When booking, patients have to choose among the doctor's available slots and enter their personal data which is then transferred to your practice database for you/your medical receptionist to check it and organize your day accordingly.

Now, let's say you are no more happy with the online scheduler you got from that vendor who visited you when you first started your practice and would like your patients to use a better one that has more functions and is more user-friendly.

At this point, the question is: Will you be able to export your patient data from your previous online scheduler to the new one without facing any problems? Well, probably not.

Hence, switching to another company would either mean losing all of your patient data or spending a fortune to save it. Needless to say that most doctors simply find such difficulties terribly annoying and would rather keep using a bad online scheduler than switch to a new better one.

However, such problems may be easily avoided by applying a few simple rules. In the first place, make sure the vendor you are talking to is not only interested in selling their products but also in your practice success.

Then, do not forget to opt for an online scheduler that supports data importing and exporting in excel format, so that, should you decide to switch to another company in the future, you will not risk losing your patient details.

If, on top of that, the software also allows you to save your patient data as pdf and have it printed nicely, you can be sure of the vendor's honesty, because that means they are not there only to в€œsnap you upв€, but also to offer a good service.

The Virtual Medical Receptionist Saves Doctors And Medical Office Assistants Lots Of Time by Jim Peterson

Whatever your field of expertise is in the world of medical practice, you're certainly aware of the fast-paced environment surrounding your medical front desk receptionist's area. That's because everything passes through that area ∓ it's where your patients sign up for appointments, it's where new patients fill up registration forms and it's where all your records are located.

When a patient walks in to your medical office, the first thing he notices is how smoothly and efficiently your front desk runs. It's where he bases his first impression of your medical practice. That's why it's very important that your medical front desk makes a good impression to the patient.

Of course, maintaining order at your front desk area is no easy feat. Just imagine what your receptionist needs to contend with: patients waiting in line, filling out forms, asking questions and answering phone calls. Not to mention the fact that there are times when your receptionist has to stay after hours just to accommodate the bulk of her work like taking messages, scheduling appointments, cancelling appointments and a lot more.

To save your medical office assistant from frustration and to keep your medical practice running smoothly, you need to acquire help. Help doesn't have to come in the form of another assistant or a part-time receptionist. Help here is in the form of a virtual medical receptionist.

A virtual medical receptionist will save you and your medical assistant a lot of time because it can do everything that your receptionist does, and probably more. This system comes complete with a medical scheduler software so basically it becomes possible for your medical office to run without chaos whether during or after office hours.

The virtual medical receptionist allows for automated appointment scheduling. This means that a patient can schedule an appointment with you without having to personally go to your clinic. He can just enter all the necessary information on the online appointment form and once finished, he just needs to submit the form and it will automatically be transmitted and stored in your database.

You can also set up the virtual medical receptionist in such a way that all incoming phone calls are coursed through it. It filters the calls and if the call is very important or if the call needs immediate attention, the patients are instructed to press a few keys so that they get routed to your actual, human receptionist.

A virtual medical receptionist, along with its many features like the automated appointment scheduling and online appointment form is indeed the cost effective answer to your medical practice needs. So make wise use of your finances and resources and invest on medical scheduler software not only to bring more business to your practice but to keep your practice running smoothly.

RNCOS Releases a New Report - Saudi Arabian Healthcare Market Forecast to 2012 by Shushmul Maheshwari

RNCOS has recently added a new Market Research Report titled, “Saudi Arabian Healthcare Market Forecast to 2012” to its report gallery. Saudi Arabia represents one of the richest economies of the world. The country has witnessed many rapid changes in people’s lifestyle, eating habits and social system over the last few years. These transformations at the social and individual levels have brought changes in diseases profiles and statistics. Hence, the prevalence of lifestyle and chronic diseases has been continuously increasing for last few years, which has put an additional burden on the healthcare spending in the country. From investors’ point of view, the Saudi Arabian healthcare sector seems to be very promising and is expected to outpace the growth rate of other countries in the Middle East region in coming years.

Our new research report “Saudi Arabian Healthcare Market Forecast to 2012” states that the healthcare sector in Saudi Arabia is expected to enjoy a double-digit growth in future. All the three segments of the healthcare industry (hospital, pharmaceutical and medical devices) will post strong growth in the backdrop of strong demand and government support. For instance - the pharmaceutical market and medical devices market are projected to grow at a CAGR of around 10% and 12% respectively during 2010-2012. Besides, the most noticeable aspect of the healthcare industry is huge private investments and this trend is likely to continue in near future.

Our report has found that the demand for hospitals beds will escalate at rapid pace with changing country’s demographic conditions and rising population. The increasing prevalence of diseases and expanding proportion of ageing population will further boost the demand for beds. However, there are several factors, like high cost of healthcare treatments in the country, economic dependency of the country on oil rates, which are imposing a negative impact on the growth rate, but these are expected to be overcome in near future with the help of government efforts.

This report contains valuable information and rational analysis of the Saudi Arabian healthcare market and its various aspects like health insurance.

Details About What Liposuction Surgery Does by Rudy Silva

Liposuction surgery is a procedure of removing excess fat from areas like the face, chin, love handles, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, flanks, hips, upper arms, jowls and neck. The sole purpose of liposuction is similar to all cosmetic surgery-to improve your physical appearance and body.

When it comes to liposuction, the surgeon has in mind the goal of improving the contour of your body. It comes from the Greek word ‘lipos’ which means fat. It is also known by its other terms such as suction lipectomy and lipoplasty.

In order to remove fats, liposuction uses suction, which is provided by a vacuum-like device or by a large syringe. The suction is inserted through a small incision in the body, and the surgeon will suction out some of the fat tissue.

In contrast to what most people believe, liposuction surgery is not an alternative method to losing weight, if you are overweight. What it offers is a way to a smoother and trimmer body if you have extra pockets of fats that will not go away with physical exercise.

Discarding the financial aspect, the ideal people to have liposuction are those who are close to normal weight. But, they have pockets of excess fat with firm skin, and are physically and psychologically healthy.

Before the procedure, you need to find the right surgeon for you. Discuss with him all your expectations and concern. Even if liposuction sucks the fat tissue out of your body, it is not a guarantee that you will have a perfect body. A good surgeon will discuss with you the facts about the procedure, the preparation, the benefits, risks, costs and the recovery period.

You will also have to take certain measures as part of your preparation. For example, if you are taking birth control pill, it should be stopped and be replaced with another birth control method, until after the liposuction surgery.

Drugs such as Ibuprofen, aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs should be avoided for ten days before the surgery, because these drugs can contribute to bleeding during and after the surgery. Even certain vitamins and herbs can affect bleeding, so it is best to inform your surgeon, if you are taking them.

If you are a smoker, your surgeon will recommend that you stop, before the surgery, and you should not resume even after the procedure. Smoking can put you at higher risks of contracting chest infections, after anesthesia is injected into your body.

Depending on some cases, your surgeon will inform you not to eat any food and drink any liquid after midnight a day before the surgery. The choice of anesthesia depends on several factors, including the amount of fat removed, the technique of liposuction used and your pain tolerance.

There are three types of anesthesia that your surgeon will choose: local, regional and general. The local numbs only the area to be treated, while regional numbs the lower half of your body, and general makes you unconscious.

The three techniques common in making liposuction surgery are wet liposuction, super wet liposuction and tumescent liposuction. The wet liposuction requires general anesthesia. The amount of wetting solution will be less than the volume of fat removed.

In super wet liposuction, the wetting solution is equal to the volume of fat removed, and requires general anesthesia. Finally, the tumescent liposuction surgery has a wetting solution of two or three times the volume of fat removed. It requires local anesthesia, and causes fat deposits to swell. This technique is the most common, because it has the advantage of having less bleeding, and bruising.

Fire Up Your Metabolism by Robert D. Franklin

Ask 20 people you know what type of exercise they should be doing to burn fat and fire up their metabolism and they may all tell you the same thing... do about 40 minutes of moderately-paced aerobic exercise on some type of fitness machine for 3-5 times per week.

They may even emphasize that more times during the week is better.

What's wrong with that scenario? Because that continues to be the mainstream recommendation for fat burning by a lot of fitness professionals. Get to and stay at a certain target heart rate for about 1/2 hour or so a few days in the week. Solution: there is certainly a better, more effective way!

No telling, you will burn calories while you’re running running or moving in place, but you won’t make drastic changes in your physique with this type of exercise regimen.

In fact, it might even be counterproductive to burning fat. Why?

Long duration, lower intensity aerobics calls upon your stored body fat for energy during the sessions. This may sound good to you, but it can actually create more body fat in your reserve after the workout is over to prepare it for the next workout.

What’s worse, it trains your cardiovascular system to be efficient. Also, your heart and lungs can actually reduce their capacity for work as they are getting more efficient at doing easy work, which reduces their ability to handle stress.

This could lead to all sorts of other problems including higher change of heart attack. Basically, you are only working within your current aerobic capacity because it's not challenged to go beyond its capability. For that matter, anything that is easy won't yield effective results.

What you should do is challenge your body to increase its capacity, so that it is stronger and able to deal with stress more easily. How, you ask?

Resistance training is the fastest and most efficient way to rev up your metabolism, burn fat faster, and develop lifelong health and fitness is to add lean muscle. If you are seeking out life changing results in the quickest possible time, get stronger and build some muscle. When you add lean muscle to your body you will turn into a fat burning machine.

Let’s say that you were eating the amount of calories that allow you to maintain your current bodyweight, but began to add lean muscle to your body through proper resistance training…you’ll need to use some of those calories you’re eating to feed the new muscle, creating a calorie deficit in your body.

In addition, when you stimulate your body with proper resistance training, the repair and growth process will call upon your stored body fat for energy. This calorie deficit combined with the repair and growth process will allow you to burn fat all day long, every day. You’ll even get these fat burning effects when you’re sitting around doing nothing at all.

Also, properly conducted resistance training actually increases your heart and lung’s capacity for work. By placing intense demands on your body, it is forced into being ready for anything you throw at it. This makes you more resistant to cardiovascular health problems that plague most people…even those that exercise with aerobics frequently.

And the great thing is that you don’t have to spend much time working out to get the fat loss effects. You can more than likely accomplish this in 2 or 3 weekly workouts that last between 20 and 30 minutes, and even less time at an advanced level.

This works because you're using efficiency and it will help keep you lean and healthy for the long term.

Positive Cognitive Aging by Michael Logan

Cognitive aging at the age of 62 can result in some scary feelings, a little worry, a little fear, because these days my vision or my memory is not quite what it was, and so on.

If you are my age, 62, then I am sure you and Bill Clinton feel my pain.

I grew up with the neuroscientific model that we had all the neurons we were going to have and all the brain circuitry that we were going to have by the time we were five years old or so, and that we would slowly lose those neuronal assets until we ended up in 'the home' staring vapidly at a fish tank.

That model is still so ingrained that at first blush I forget that we have made some wonderful discoveries about the human brain in the last few years, like the brain grows new neurons throughout the life span, so there are replacement parts available.

That is right, my cognitive aging does not need to describe a slow descent into Alzheimer's.

The process of growing new new neurons is called neurogenesis, and it can be encouraged.

Positive Cognitive Aging

But there is a catch, of course. Neurogenesis and its cousin, neuroplasticity, which describes the connections neurons make amongst themselves when they learn something new, can be encouraged if we take care of the what the research folks who are writing about this call the pillars of brain fitness.

Those pillars are physical exercise, good nutrition including anti-oxidants and omega 3 fatty acids, good sleep, (no problem with that one, right?), stress management, and novel learning experiences.

If you have not exercised for awhile, or do not like fish, which is the best source of omega 3 fatty acid, or are still living a high stress lifestyle, you may despair that neurogenesis is beyond what you can hope for.

Not true. You need to read this excellent e-book, called Brainfit for Life, written by Simon Evans,Ph.D., and Paul Burghardt,Ph.D. who are neuroscientists at the University of Michigan.

They write for the layperson, and their mission is to give us information we can use to age well.

In my book, that means increase neurogenesis and neuroplasticity.

Positive Cognitive Aging and Physical Exercise

Physical exercise is the most important pillar of brain fitness, but it does not mean that you have to buy an expensive club membership or hire a trainer.

It means you have build a way for there to be lots of deep breathing in your life, which could come from doing more of what you are already doing. If you are walking regularly, then walk for a little longer, a little faster, fast enough that it is hard to breathe and talk at the same time.

Of course once you start, you will want to start lifting weights and getting buff all over again.

One model worth looking at for its simplicity and economy is called the HIIT model, short for high intensity interval training, which you can do at home in ten minutes with an exercise ball or some dumbbells.

I can do that for positive cognitive aging.

Positive Cognitive Aging and Nurtrition

Broadly speaking, you get no more processed foods, which are full of appetite stimulants and high fructose corn syrup. You do get lots of fruit and vegetables because they are full of anti-oxidants which sop up free radicals that result from the incredible number of chemical reactions that happen in your noggin every second. Your brain uses 20% of the fuel you burn every day, but comprises only 2% of your weight, so lots of reactions happen, and free radicals are actually what cause aging.

Smoothies are a great way to get a daily dose of fruits, and juicing is a very good way to get those phytochemicals that our neurons need.

Your neurons are also about 70% omega 3 fatty acid, which we do not make very efficiently from food, unless you are eating lots of fish. Not sure about you, while I like eating fish, I am concerned about mercury so I like a supplement to make sure I am getting what Evans and Burghardt recommend. If omega 3 fatty acid is not replenished regularly, according to Evans and Burghardt, neurons get brittle and their conversations get garbled, leading to poor decisions.

Positive Cognitive Aging and Stress Management

Eustress versus distress. Neurogenesis is inhibited by the presence of unnecessary stress hormones, so stress management is a very important part of the cognitive aging process.

Stress management and mindfulness have important links, and biofeedback can be a key piece of stress management. The tool I like the best for stress management, because it combines mindfulness, cognitions, and breathing to learn how to manage the time between heart beats is called heart rate variability biofeedback.

The great thing about biofeedback is that it is learned so I practice it on the computer for 5-10 sessions, and then, more than likely, you will be able to cue a response simply by remembering your cue thought, or your breathing pattern, or both.

Heart rate variability biofeedback is a wonderful tool to use to help you drift off to sleep, and a full cycle of sleep stages is very important for your neurogenesis.

For example, your brain consolidates the days memories while you sleep, and also releases melatonin, which is a key daily event in keeping your brain healthy

Positive Cognitive Aging and Novel Learning Experiences

The last of the brain fitness pillars involves the novel learning experience, and it is the pillar which most enhances the connectivity of neurons or neuroplasticity, and that connectivity, or cognitive reserve is very important in providing re-routing around plaques in the brain.

The factor most important is the novelty factor, so if you are a counselor, you cannot read another counseling book and hope to enhance neuroplasticity.

The kinds of learning most endorsed for this pillar is the kind we experience when learning a new language or a new instrument.

You might want to take a look at some of the research around the computerized brain fitness programs that have emerged in the last couple of years. There is very interesting information in the IMPACT and the PNAS study.

So attend to the pillars of brain fitness for a positive cognitive aging.

Fish Oil And Heart Health – Know All The Details To Maximize Your Health by Laurel Cohen

You need to know all of the details of the connection between omega 3 DHA fish oil and heart health in order to maximize your health. You have probably heard a lot about the benefits that omega 3 fatty acids have on the brain, but there so many other ways that these nutrients can positively affect your health. If you are not currently taking an omega 3 fish oil supplement it is something that you absolutely must start doing.

We seem to all take it for granted that at some point in time in our lives we are going fall victim to one of the many common inflammatory diseases, and if we don’t take the proper precautions then this is likely to come true. What most people don’t realize is that inflammatory disease is the result of the foods that we eat. Our diets are far too high in omega 6 fatty acids, and too sparse in omega 3s.

There is an extremely positive connection between fish oil and heart health due to the anti-inflammatory properties of DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids. The high levels of omega 6 fatty acids obtained through our diets cause massive amounts of chronic inflammation to build up in our bodies. This inflammation takes a heavy toll on our organs and soft tissue unless there is some way for it to be counteracted.

If we can just bring our DHA and EPA levels up to match the levels of n-6 fatty acids, then all of the inflammation that the latter nutrients produce can be nullified. By canceling out the inflammation before it has the chance to wear down the body and pave the way for disease, we can live healthier and possibly even longer lives. Tests conducted on a dietary combination of DHA and EPA fatty acids and natural vitamin E has led scientists to believe that it may be possible to extend life.

The connection between omega 3 DHA fish oil and heart health has to do with the ability of DHA and EPA omega 3 fatty acids do perform a number of heart friendly duties. These fatty acids significantly lower blood pressure and triglycerides, slows the heart rate and prevents irregularities in heartbeat, act as an anticoagulant, and inhibit the formation of fatty deposits along the artery walls.

These fatty acids have also been proven to be dramatically effective in the prevention of adult onset non-insulin dependent diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis and gout, allergies and asthma, and various inflammatory skin disorders. They have also been proven effective in preventing the development of hormone driven cancers, so your risk of breast, prostate, and colon cancer will be significantly lower.

The positive connection between fish oil and heart health is indisputable, and so is the link between omega 3 fatty acids and the prevention of inflammatory disease. If you want to remain as healthy as absolutely possible or want to improve the quality of your life if you already suffer one of the diseases that I mentioned, then supplementing your diet with an omega 3 DHA fish oil formula is for you.
