5 Simple Steps to Younger, More Radiant Skin

In Health
On May 30, 2020

Drugstore shelves and beauty counters at department stores are filled with an almost overwhelming array of products promising youthful skin, a dewy or glowing complexion, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and even skin tone, and more. Dermatologists’ offices can provide botox injections for wrinkles and laugh lines, collagen injections to reduce the “parentheses” from the corners of your mouth to the outer edges of your nostrils or to give you full lips, and chemical peels to uncover the “real you” beneath layers of dead skin. Along with all that, Botulinum toxin therapy has been used to treat many neurologic disorders making it a really useful and effective medical therapy. 

But does having beautiful skin need to be so complicated, expensive, or even dangerous? Of course not. By following these five simple and inexpensive steps and choosing a few products, you can keep your face looking its best at any age.

  1. Moisturize. Whether you are 19 or 90, whether your skin could single-handedly solve the oil crisis or is as dry as the Sahara, there is a moisturizer just for your skin, and you should use it twice a day. If you spend money on only one product, it should be the right moisturizer for your skin. It doesn’t have to break the bank, either; for example, Olay makes a Complete Defense Moisturizer TM for every skin type (dry, oily, normal, combination, and sensitive) for around $8, available at discount chains like Wal-Mart and Target as well as pharmacy chains like Walgreens, CVS, and Eckert’s. One bottle should last you about two months. There are other brands in the same price range, or higher if you want to go that route. Just find the right moisturizer for your skin type, and use it religiously in the morning (after you cleanse but before your make-up!) and at bedtime. Be sure to apply it in an upward direction from the chin up, and don’t forget your throat and decollete.
  1. Wash your face gently. Soaps can be drying (in a bad way) to your skin, and scrubbing away at oily skin will only cause it to produce more oil. In the evening, wash off the day’s make-up and environmental pollutants with the gentlest non-soap cleanser you can find. Cetaphil makes a gentle cleanser for under $10, in a big bottle that should last at least three months. Olay makes a moisture-balancing foaming cleanser for the same skin types as its Complete Defense moisturizer, also around $8. If you want to spend a little more, L’Occitane’s Comfort Cleansing Fluid TM with milk and honey wipes the grime from your face by putting a little bit on a cotton ball and wiping it over your face. It doesn’t even need to be rinsed off. Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple cleanser sells for $20 for an 8-ounce bottle on QVC, and a little bit goes a very long way. That one is gentle enough to clean off your eyeshadow without causing any burning or other problems for your eyes. But you don’t need to spend a lot to get a gentle cleanser. You should use the cleanser at night, to remove the day before applying moisturizer; in the morning, rinsing with warm water is really all you need to do. Never use hot water on your face.
  1. Use a sunscreen. Even the exposure your face gets by walking from your car to your office, or your house to the mailbox can damage your skin. You should use a sunscreen every day, and make sure it provides both UVA and UVB protection. Olay’s “Complete Defense” moisturizer got that name because it contains sunscreen with an SPF of 15, and both UVA and UVB protection. Many other moisturizers and some foundations also contain a sunscreen. If your exposure to the sun will be limited, an SPF of 15 is enough, but if you will be spending more time than that in the sun, you should use a sunscreen formulated for the face with an SPF of 30 (testing has shown that more than 30 is really no more effective than 30, so don’t waste your money by going higher). Do reapply sunscreen several times during the day. Because the skin of your face is more delicate than the rest of your body, be sure to use a sunscreen that is specifically for your face on your face, and not the one you’d put on your arms, legs or back. As much as some of us love the sun, avoiding it is better for your skin.
  1. Stay hydrated. For the sake of your face as well as your body, drink at least five 8 ounce glasses of water a day. Coffee and soft drinks don’t count; your body and your skin crave water. If you don’t like the taste, add a slice of lemon or lime. Carry around a 16-ounce sports bottle, and sip out of it all day, refill as necessary, and you’ll get that 40 ounces of water in without even noticing it. It will help keep your skin firm, and help to moisturize from the inside out. As a bonus, if you’re trying to lose weight, filling up on water, especially drinking an 8-ounce glass about 15 minutes before a meal, will help you to eat less and eat smaller portions.
  1. Use an eye cream. If you are over 18, it’s not too early (or too late) to start using a moisturizing cream or gel formulated just for the eye area. That skin is thinner and less resilient than the rest of the skin on your face. Using a cream just for eyes will help to prevent, and some brands will help eliminate, the fine lines and the crepey skin that develops as you age. Use it morning and evening, and use it sparingly. The reason it comes in that little bottle is that a very small amount goes a long way.
  1. (Bonus Tip) Exfoliate once a week. Exfoliation, using a gentle and non-chemical exfoliant (try Alba brand Pineapple Enzyme Facial Scrub from Alba Organics, around $8 for 4 ounces), done once a week, will remove dead cells from the surface of your face and reveal the glowing new cells beneath. If you don’t want to buy an exfoliant, even an inexpensive one, you can make one with ingredients from your own kitchen (see my article on making your own exfoliants here on AC).

  1. (Bonus Tip 2) If you smoke, stop now. The sooner you stop smoking, the better, for your skin and the rest of your body. Smoking causes the formation of lines around your mouth and eyes, and the tar and nicotine in tobacco can cause your skin to appear blotchy and discolored. Besides, smoking is the number one cause of heart disease, and heart disease is the number one killer of women in America. Stopping will not only help keep your skin young, but it might save your life.

Follow these steps, use make-up sparingly, and your skin will look fresher and younger, and you’ll feel better too. Add a smile, and you’re gorgeous and ready to go!

Tips for Keeping Your Skin Fresh All Day

On May 30, 2020

When you have a long day ahead of you, the last thing you want to think about is spending time reapplying makeup. If you like a fresh skin look, then care for your skin with products that will allow you to show better skin with fewer flaws. Daily maintenance for skin with The CoolSculpting Treatment is the best tip for keeping your skin fresh all day.

Day Formulas

Select a day formula for your skin. Day formulas act as shields between your skin and your makeup. Day formulas contain sunscreen that keeps age spots and wrinkles at bay. Squirt a dot into your hand, apply it to your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Avoid getting day formulas in your eyes. This product makes the skin smooth and fresh looking. It is like a daily facial peel only a very light manner.


After your day formula, apply an oil-free moisturizer to your skin. Do not pick one that is thick and goopy. A lightweight moisturizer is better for your skin. Moisturize your body too with an oil-free product. Never use your body moisturizer on your face.


A dab of concealer will hide dark circles, brown spots, and red patches leaving you with fresh looking skin. The concealer comes in colors that match your skin tone but it is best to go a shade lighter. Women who have red spots might consider using a yellow concealer on trouble areas. Yellow concealer mutes the red color and allows the foundation to cover your skin better, leaving you with fresh-looking skin.


Primers are a relatively new makeup product that holds your eyeshadow and lip color in place. Use eye primer on your eyelids before applying makeup. Squirt a tiny amount of primer onto the tip of your finger. Rub it over your eye area. Use eyeshadow colors that match your skin tone for a fresh look. Pick bone, nude and tan colors for eye shadow. Apply lip primer to lips by opening the tube rubbing it lightly over clean lips. Then apply your natural lipstick color.


Foundation is necessary for keeping your skin fresh all day. Mineral powders make the best natural looking foundations while still offering problem skin good coverage. Select a powder that matches your skin tone and apply it using a flat kabuki brush.

Body Care

Use deodorizing sprays and spritzers to keep your body smelling fresh all day. After your morning shower, moisturize then spray your body lightly with deodorizing sprays. Keep the bottle in your purse and give yourself a quick blast every few hours.

Wear a fresh skin look with confidence all day long. Use these tips to help you get the perfect natural look.

When you are at crossroads in life where you have to choose between what is right and what is easy, the decision taken ultimately influences your life and sets in motion the chain of events that will take place in your life.

This might not stir the imagination for some people because life and destination go hand in hand where an individual travels and the path that he takes decides where he is going to go, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

It helps you to become a better and stronger person where you don’t shy away from taking tough decisions and choosing difficult career paths because if your resolution is strong, then success will be yours in due course, provided you keep going with your struggle.

New wave Theory

When it comes to taking tough decisions, career choices are the hardest in this matter because it pertains to your future, which is a cause of constant worry to the parents as they want to see their children settled in life.

The medical profession is quite tough to manage but the thing that inspires parents to force their kids into it is their preconceived notion that it is the most profitable industry in the world at the moment.

They don’t give much thought to what their offspring wants to become and what his interests are but simply want to look good by setting an example to the neighbors and relatives that their child is academically stronger than their children.

It is this game of one-upmanship among parents that have a negative impact on their child’s life and they are emotionally shredded, forcing them to take the extreme step of suicide

When it comes to the medical field, you need to obtain an MBBS degree and then practice for many years before qualifying to become a doctor and treating the patients diligently.

This new wave theory is quite a welcome change for people who are interested in becoming a doctor as this is a field that is complicated and promises big returns in the bargain.

Healthcare Firm

The healthcare market is in its thriving phase and the medical profession means big business, which is why you will see various online portals and websites that provide an opportunity for people to open their own clinic or hospital.

Social media has made it easier as there are many platforms for medical marketing agencies where you can practice medicine and healthcare for financial and social growth by making a big name for yourself.

For example, plastic surgery marketing was started a couple of years back and is now a big name where surgeons can manage various patients from different parts of the world, especially film stars that constantly yearn for the perfect look and are willing to go under the knife and spend millions on the procedure.

Choosing a medical marketing agency is not easy because you need to know differentiate between genuine and fake firms as there are plenty of them online so try to contact them through their number and lookup the given address online.

Genuine medical  firms have years of experience in this field and it is easy to identify them through their speech and mannerisms apart from the routine enquiry that is conducted. 

African American Skin Care

In Beauty
On May 29, 2020

Contrary to popular belief, there is very little about African American skin that can be safely assumed which is why African American skincare is a combination of general skincare, individual skincare, and a few extras that may be specific to olive skin, brown skin or darker skin tones. While African American Beauty Therapy at Ethos Spa is based (for the most part) on the “individual” due to numerous factors ranging from diet and environment to different shades, hues and hormones, there are several minor issues that may affect some African Americans skincare regimens.

Whether its acne or eczema, dry skin or oily skin, psoriasis, or vitiligo-people from all different backgrounds can get these conditions. Some African-American skin types may encounter everything from small moles and ingrown hairs (men) to keloids and skin discoloration. These conditions can affect African-American skincare regimens.

Ingrown hairs or flesh moles may affect some African Americans more than others. In African American men with curved hair shafts, ingrown hairs, commonly referred to as razor bumps, may appear after a close shave. This condition can be easily resolved by shaving with safety razors, shaving less often, avoiding stretching the skin during shaving, and washing the face with a warm washcloth before shaving. This helps to loosen the hairs. If the condition is severe, which is rare, electrolysis is an option as well as hair removal chemicals or growing a beard.

Flesh moles are brown or black raised dark spots, resembling moles or flat warts, which usually appear on the cheeks. Everyone has at least a few moles and they may appear by the age of 20 as freckles at first. Freckles can develop into flesh moles and they can become darker or larger as a result of pregnancy or hormones (birth control pills) as well as exposure to sunlight. Flesh moles tend to run in families and they are not cancerous, but for cosmetic reasons some may opt to have them surgically removed. To prevent darkening or increases in size, it’s best to wear sunscreen every day and choose the type of birth control pill wisely.

While keloids can be found in Indians, Chinese, and even whites, they are found most often in people of African descent. The majority of these small, irregular shaped scar tissues develop as the result of a serious cut or scratch on the skin that has not been treated properly. When a deep cut or scratch hasn’t been treated properly, in some cases, the cut may turn into a bump. Again, if not treated, the bump may develop into a keloid. Keloids tend to run in families, but in rare cases, they may appear for no reason. Keloids are not life-threatening and there are several different treatment methods including injection of steroids into the keloid, radiation therapy, topical applications used to flatten the keloid over time, and permanent removal. To prevent keloids and any type of infection or permanent scarring, treat deep cuts and scratches immediately.

African Americans are blessed with natural protection against the sun and it is believed that the average African-American has sun protection factor (SPF) of 13. The result is fewer wrinkles, a lower incidence of premature aging, and a lower incidence of skin cancer. On the flipside, because African American skin contains more of the pigment melanin, this can cause skin discolorations or darkened areas resulting in picking the skin, harsh abrasives and scrubbing or cuts, and other injuries to the skin. In some cases, these darkened areas may take several months to fade, in others it may take years. To avoid this, refrain from picking the skin, treat cuts and injuries promptly, and always wear sunscreen.

There are literally dozens of different skin tones or shades among African Americans, but there is one thing that all skin has in common-the the need for sunscreen. Every African American skin care regimen should include sunscreen, no matter how light, medium, or dark you are. Having natural protection against the sun is great, but it’s still not enough. Not too sure about which SPF is best for your skin tone? Consider the following: if you fall into the dark to very dark category (Whoopi Goldberg, Bernie Mac, Seal, Wesley Snipes), an 8-15 SPF should be sufficient. If you fall into the fair to slightly dark category (Michael Michelle, Vanessa Williams, Halle Berry, Thandie Newton) a 20-30 SPF should be sufficient. For very light or very fair skin (Christopher “Kid” Reid from Kid n’ Play), an SPF higher than 30 up to 50 should be sufficient. If you’re unsure about your skin tone, check with your dermatologist to find out which SPF is best for you.

When it comes to African American skin care or any type of skincare, one of the single most important steps in a skincare system is cleansing. Everything from pollution and dust to moisturizers, make-up, and product build-up can clog the pores which can lead to acne, dull skin and blackheads. Finding the right cleanser may take a significant amount of trial and error for some and it may be quite simple for others. It’s best to know your skin type before shopping for a suitable cleanser.

If you have oily skin, it’s best to avoid cleansers that are overly “creamy” and if you have dry skin, it’s best to avoid cleansers that contain excessive amounts of alcohol. Combination skin can be tricky, but dermatologists recommend using products that contain Alpha Hydroxy acids which help to normalize the skin. Cleansers that contain glycolic acid such as Glytone have been proven safe for the vast majority of skin types, including combination skin. It cleanses and exfoliates without drying the skin and without the need for scrubbing agents. It is safe to use morning and night and it is highly recommended by dermatologists. Glytone can be purchased at just about any dermatologist office or you may purchase Glytone online directly from the manufacturer (Genesis Pharmaceuticals) at www.genesispharm.com, 1-800-Glytone.

The use of toners and moisturizers depends on skin type. Toners are typically used for deep cleansing and they may help to reduce excessive oiliness, persistent breakouts, and blackheads. Moisturizers help to hydrate the skin. A general rule of thumb with African American skincare is “keep it simple.” If the skin is dry, moisturize, if it’s oily skip the heavy moisturizers. Use oil-based make-up for dry skin, use water-based make-up for acne-prone skin. Be aware of birth control pills, antibiotics, and medicines that increase sensitivity to the sun, wear sunscreen, and don’t pick the skin or ignore cuts, scrapes, and injuries. In the end your skincare regimen has to work for your skin. So choose your products and your system with care.

Benefits of Plastic Surgeries

On May 29, 2020

Nowadays, a lot of people are considering plastic surgeries. For most, the only purpose of plastic surgeries is to enhance the physical appearance of the person. But the power of plastic surgeries doesn’t end there. There are several and wide varieties of benefits that plastic surgeries can provide. Here are some of those:

Improves Self-Esteem

One of the main purposes of plastic surgery is to improve your physical appearance. And once you are happy and confident with the way you look, your self-esteem will be improved. The natural outcome of the plastic surgery will help to boost your self-esteem which usually provide additional beneficial activities and feelings. Arguably, most of the people are relying heavily on their own looks. This is why most of the doctors or surgeons also consider the mental and emotional condition of their patients before performing the surgery. 

 Healthier Lifestyle

As stated earlier, most of the patients of plastic surgery want to make the most of their effort and time that went into their procedures so they do their very best in order to maintain the results. They have also spent a lot of money for the procedure and on other things needed and related to the surgery. So, when the results have finally manifested, they will make sure that it will be taken care of properly. As a result, they do better diet and they try to have a more active lifestyle so their investment will be maintained.

Relieves Neck, Back and Shoulder Pain

Another benefit of plastic surgery is that it can help reduce neck, back and shoulder pain. Usually, women who have overly large breasts and a body frame that has difficulty supporting them almost always experience immediate relief of pain. So this is now when the idea of plastic surgery comes into the picture. This is only for women who consider this kind of operation. There is a bunch of information that women need to know and a lot of factors to consider before making a final decision. The private clinic offers the very best in cosmetic plastic surgery and they accept insurance as well. 

Reduces Chance of Diabetes

Plastic surgeries can also reduce your chance of having diabetes. Technically speaking, fatty acids impair the ability of your body to break down insulin so reducing and removing the number of fat cells that generate these fatty acids can also improve your chances of not getting diabetes. Patients who have family history of diabetes and obesity should take a very serious point of idea of proper diet, weight loss and regular exercise. The liposuction fat removal is significantly small but overall, it contributes in improving your chances against diabetes. Hence, taking care of our health and ourselves is really recommended. 

Improves Breathing and Oxygen Flow

Last but not the least, plastic surgeries are also known to be helpful in improving the flow of oxygen into our body so we can breath properly. When patients have problems in breathing and have been corrected through rhinoplasty, the breathing will be improved.

The world has made great strides in the medical field that has created many milestones in the wake where you can cure most diseases at a quicker pace today than you could in old times when there was virtually no cure for life threatening ones.

Speaking of cure, the corona virus pandemic has taken the death toll to an alarming rate where all the nations have come together to fight it while in the meantime the doctors are working out a vaccine that should be out in a few months from now.

It is not that things were any better even before corona broke out from China and slowly took the other countries into its grasp because mankind was already grappling with various diseases, both normal and life threatening, prior to this virus.

Preventive Measures

One such ailment is back pain, which tends to take it out of aged folks who can’t stand or sit straight due to this issue and this problem continues to persist most of them where they start feeling that death would be a much better option.

Now back pain can be both acute and chronic in nature and it is the latter that is the worst because it stays with you for a lifetime and death is the only means to get relief from the pain.

Today, even youngsters are prone to back issues as there have been many cases of small children with drooping shoulders while walking that some people attribute it to lack of calcium and vitamin deficiency in their body but it must be said here that they themselves are responsible for this.

It has been seen that most children never sit on the chair or bed with their back straight but spread out completely even while sitting at a desk while working, which slowly begins to sore and before they know it, the pain engulfing them become unbearable that only a surgery can cure.

Therefore, youngsters are advised to take preventive measures at the earliest before things get worse but what about old people who don’t seem to find any respite as their advanced age is an added burden with slower reflexes.


The symptoms associated with back pain are:

  1. Constant pain in the spinal area with regular aches
  2. Pain in the upper neck and lower back, which is caused by lifting heavy objects
  3. Pain in the muscles at the back while standing

If the above symptoms persist for a longer period, it is best to get a spinal treatment as early as possible because they will only get graver with age. There is a minimally invasive spine surgery Austin that is quite successful in spine surgeries where the best surgeons are up to the task.

You can find plenty of spinal surgeons in your city who are great at their job but take care to manage the complications that arise post surgery as they are quite difficult to manage in old age.

All in all, spinal treatment is the best option for back pain like no other and the proof is there for all to see.

Weight Training for the Adolescent

In Health
On May 28, 2020

If you have let your child play as my previous article suggested, then you should have a sufficiently developed adolescent to really start training. The should have developed flexibility, relative strength (strength based on body weight), speed, agility, power, and balance. Since these have been developed you now have a solid base to work with and start training your adolescent with more advanced training regimens.

The first thing you will do when you work with an adolescent is to sit down and see what their goals are for this training. Once you know these goals you can properly lay down your plan or road map to reach the goal. When it comes to weight room training at this stage in the participants life you still want to be on the side of safety. Teach them the exercises in the program with just the bar and make sure they develop sufficient technique before you start progressing them. If you are not sure of proper technique there are many books and videos on the subject. If the adolescent is training for sports you should look at Olympic lifting videos and power lifting videos. These to strength and power sports require the best techniques either for their competitions or they translate the best to the athletic field. If they adolescent is training for aesthetic purposes then reading up on bodybuilding techniques might be the best idea. All of these techniques can be used for any number of reason and they all have originated from the same background. Once a solid technical base has been achieved (this may take a few weeks up to a few months depending on the lift and the person learning) then you can start setting up an even more organized training program to develop the adolescent. For weight loss, the selection of the pre workout canada products can be done. Either it is training program or not, the intake will offer the desired benefits. Along with the males, females can consume the pills for boosting stamina. Proper research can be conducted at online sites for the purchase of the best one. 

Normally you would look into using a typical linear periodization model to train the adolescent. This will work really well through the first few years of training. If you do not know what linear periodization is, it is a system of setting up your training phases to reach certain strength goals. This system works well for whatever purpose you want. The first phase may be an endurance phase. During this time the adolescent will perform high repetitions (15-50) with very good for and a pretty short rest. If this person is training indefinitely you can set up how long this phase will last. After this phase you will most likely progress into a hypertrophy phase. This size will be used to gain a lot of muscle. The repetitions will fall between 8-15 and you will take approximately60-90 seconds of rest between sets. This is pretty close to what bodybuilders will use most of the year. The next progression would be a strength phase. During this phase heavier weights will start being used for 5-8 reps with a 2-3 minute rest. This phase will also allow for a lot of muscle to be put on the adolescent assuming the diet is made in such a way to do so. The last phase is normally a Pure strength Phase in which you will perform you big lifts for 1-3 reps per set and take 3-6 minutes in between sets. During this phase you must take proper steps to help the adolescent recover since this will be extremely taxing on the body. This is normally the last phase and you would go back and repeat the process again. if you are training a strength and power athlete you may want to cut out or shorten the endurance phase and add in a power phase after the pure strength phase. In this phase you will still use 1-3 reps per set but at a much lighter load, attempting to move the weight as fast as possible.

These steps can be used for many of the adolescent years and make very good progress while preparing the body for more advanced techniques as they get older. With a good teacher, their technique should be flawless and the amount of injuries sustained during this time should be very minimal if any. The adolescent goes through many changes with the body and will get strong fast. This is probably the best time to train an adolescent because you make a lot of mistakes in the training and still look like an awesome personal trainer. Have fun with these groups of kids.

Cold Water Can Cause Cancer

On May 28, 2020

I have heard that drinking cold water after meals may cause severe cancer. I love drinking cold water especially when I am done eating my meals. All the way until I was with my friend who is half African American and half Japanese. She went back to her country and came back with extraordinary news. She said that cold water can cause cancer. At first I laughed it sounded funny until I realized that it wasn’t a joke. It hasn’t yet been proven in the United States but it’s very common in Japan. So I thought like any other human being would think and I asked her to describe to me how drinking cold water can cause cancer.

Well forget about the rest let me get to the point. Once the cold water emerges from the bottle into your system after you eat a meal and your food has not digested yet the cold water will hold the chewed food still. This will of course slow down the eating process known as digestion. Once this happens your food moves about as fast as a snail. Once the slow solid food moves and attaches to the acid it will decompose it will absorb quickly by the intestine as if it was whole. According to the 

 http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/223712/Does_drinking_cold_water_cause_cancer_ this will line the inside of your body especially the intestines. Shortly and eventually this will cause cancer. I know crazy right that’s the same thing I thought. Then again it has not been proven in the United States or in America period I believe. So it may not be true but I won’t take any chances. If you don’t believe me look it up and do some research on it and see for yourself. They even say that there’s a diet plan to this method in some websites. The only reason that I believe in the diet process method is because Japanese people have been proven to be much healthier than Americans. Have you ever seen a fat or oversized Japanese person? No! So maybe some of the methods for these things really do work. Why not drinking hot tea after my meals instead of cold water! I mean it does kind of make sense even though there are no scientific facts to back up this allegation it kind of haves me on the difference about it. I don’t really believe it because it can’t be proven and I do kind of believe it because I’ve actually seen how “sludge” as scientist refer to it as can slow down the food process.

This debate of cold water and hot water can go on forever but one must be aware of the benefits and limitations of both of them so that there is no compromise with your health and this can be done by looking up an interesting article online titled something like diamond rock spring water review where you can get all the information.

What if removing that item from your diet meant it could help you lose weight while strengthening your bones and your teeth? That’s just all the more reason to take this item out of diet! Well, if you are sitting at your computer right now drinking a soda, you may want to think twice about your soda habit because removing soda from your diet can have a significant improvement on your health.

First, if you are drinking your soda out of a can, you may not realize that most soda cans are lined with BPA (bisphenol A), a synthetic estrogen used to harden plastics and make items shatter-proof. While many people only associate plastics with BPA, it is used in cans to extend the shelf life of the soda. BPA is harmful to developing fetuses, infants, and is linked to infertility, diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

Second, drinking soda weakens your teeth and bones. If you want a pretty smile, put down your soda right now! Soda delivers a double blow to your teeth because it contains both sugar and acids that soften teeth. Many sodas, regardless of if they are diet or regular, contain phosphoric and citric acid. These are used to provide a tart or sour flavor. Once the enamel on your teeth erodes, it leaves your teeth more sensitive and susceptible to decay. Phosphoric acid also has been shown to limit calcium absorption into the body. You need calcium for strong bones, so even if you are eating a healthy diet, the soda you consume may work against you. Osteoporosis research points out that women who regularly drank soda (any type of it), had a bone mineral density almost four percent lower than those who did not drink it.

This is alarming news for people that are soda addicts and is enough to see the grave repercussions that it can have on the body because you don’t know what lies in store for old age due to calcium deficiency. Just make sure that you have Trusted CoolSculpting Specialists serving Old Bridge to give your body an image makeover.

Third, there is no nutritional value in soda. If you regularly drink a 12-ounce can of soda, you are consuming on average 160 calories! Those extra calories quickly lead to extra pounds. Are you off the hook if you drink diet soda? Surprisingly, research shows that people who consume diet soda (rather than water), actually gain more weight! The reason why is because the artificial sweeteners used in the diet soda actually increase your craving for sweet foods. It keeps your brain wanting more sweets, and so you are more tempted by that donut if you are a diet soda drinker than if you are a water drinker!

Fourth, drinking soda regularly increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Soda consumption is linked to weight gain, specifically in the belly area, which is a major risk factor for this disease and also for heart disease. The added sugars in soda can quickly add up, and many people may not consider the calories in them when watching their caloric intake.

Lastly, if you or anyone you know has ever suffered from painful kidney stones, then soda should be the furthest thing from your drinking glass! Phosphoric acid in sodas changes the way kidneys process urine and can put you at an increased risk for developing kidney stones. Both diet and regular sodas contain phosphoric acid, so there is no “safe” soda to consume it if you want to avoid kidney stones.

Soda is so readily available in our culture that we rarely take the time to consider what is in it or how it affects our health. It is also easy to remove it from our diet and replace it with healthy, thirst-quenching, calorie-free water. If you are transitioning from soda to water, consider flavoring your water with lemon and fresh cut fruit (like strawberries) to get a little natural sweetness. Before long, your soda habit will be long gone along with a few pounds!

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could lose those last ten pounds while enjoying a mini-vacation in a spa like environment? Weight loss spas that promise to help make the task of weight loss easier and more pleasant have sprung up across the country. Here are some of the best weight loss spa vacations:

How Starbucks Keeps Customers

On May 26, 2020

As a business manager as well as chronic Starbucks customer, I’ve been analyzing what Starbucks does that keeps us coming in. Some might say it’s because they sell an addictive product, but I would suggest that it’s the “Starbucks Experience” that’s addictive. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

The Starbucks Products

Quality –

Starbucks serves a core product of high quality surrounded by supporting products (light lunch items, pastries, breakfast items) that flesh out experience. I know I can drop by even if I need a little something to eat. While there are other good coffee places around, Starbucks is still where I want to go if I want to be sure I’m going to get a great cup of coffee.

Consistency –

I recently moved from the Kansas City area to the San Francisco Bay area. When I walked into my “new local” Starbucks, I knew exactly what I would receive when I placed my order.

Just Enough Variety –

While staying true to its core, Starbucks rolls out just enough related seasonal items to keep us interested. It’s always a great place to pick up a gift, whether it’s a gift card, a coffee mug, some Starbucks Via, or a pound of roasted beans.

The Starbucks People

When I walked into my new Starbucks, the barista helping me made a quick note of my name from my name badge, and called me by my name when thanking me for my order. I have been in businesses where this is done in a way that feels “gamey;” at Starbucks I nearly always feel that the employees are glad to see me. Hiring genuine people who have high customer service values, then training them thoroughly, is a recipe for repeat customers in any business, whether it’s healthcare or coffee.

My other people-related measure is whether people who work there like working there. I frequently ask people (not just at Starbucks) how they like their work, the company, etc. Starbucks employees generally give their company generally positive feedback.

Starbucks Convenience

Even with the well needed closure of a number of stores in the last few years, I never have to travel too far to find a Starbucks. As a result, it is never too much hassle for me to go there to get something, so I never end up stopping at a competitor.

Starbucks Rewards

Starbucks has a “My Starbucks Rewards” program that provides incentives for returning customers. They use Facebook and mobile apps as ways of enhancing this experience and making it more user-accessible.

I do think this program could be more prominently featured. I received a Starbucks gift card for Christmas, and almost accidentally discovered that I could register the card, reload it online, etc. A gentle reminder when the card is used for the first time might increase the profile of the Rewards program.

I would also suggest that Starbucks take a look at what Panera Bread is doing with their “My Panera” program. Rather than just having standard rewards at various levels, I receive pretty regular little surprises from Panera in my email box (a free pastry and free coffee so far). This might be a useful addition for Starbucks to consider. Intermittent reinforcement is a powerful thing.

The Starbucks Intangibles

We like to go back to places that make us feel good, not only about them, but about ourselves. Starbucks accomplishes this in large part by their long-term emphasis on the environment specifically, but social responsibility in general. This includes using fair trade practices, being a leader in recycling, and being involved with their local communities. Starbucks and social responsibility actually sounds like a pretty good article idea that would stand on its own.

The Starbucks Brand

Starbucks keeps customers by being a “Brand,” in the best sense of the word. I know who they are, what they stand for, and what they do. They have a strong social networking presence (#1 on Facebook), and I think they are just beginning to find ways to use that to enhance customer loyalty and experience. I believe they will successfully grow even more as those efforts being to bear fruit.

Lastly, another reason why starbucks keeps their customers is because they use tools and software that can help them in managing their customers. They are using CRM software to better provide quality service to their clients. So if you are a business owner, you should find and compare CRM software for your business.

Enduring Surgery Wide Awake

In Health
On May 26, 2020

In June of 2012, a tumor the size of a bowling ball was surgically removed from my abdomen. Fortunately, the tumor hadn’t turned cancerous. This was a result of an out-of-control hormonal imbalance that went undetected for years (big problems start out small). Just when I thought I had overcome the hardest part, one of my worst nightmares was brought to life. I didn’t heal after surgery.

I spent the days following the surgery recuperating at home. It was tough, but thinking the worst was behind kept me optimistic. I was hopeful for the future and excited to see how my body would change after this poisonous mass had been expelled from my body. After a few days, I started getting strange pains that just didn’t feel right. It was really hard to tell, at first, if this was normal, because my insides hadn’t gotten used to the newly opened space.

Because I was not able to use my abdominal muscles, I was very careful getting in and out of the seated position. Eventually, a tearing sensation occurred whenever I stood up. It sent shooting pain down my left leg. I worried about infection and possible blood clots, so I called my doctor. He told me to go to the nearest emergency room. So I did. It was determined, right away, that I should be transferred in an ambulance to the hospital where I’d had the operation. Before surgery of the Spine and Nervous System, the medical history should be disclosed to the expert. The medicine will be provided according to the requirement of the body. The patients will be well-treated in the ambulance to provide the relaxation for the surgery. The charges of the treatment should be under the budget of the patient. 

In the second emergency room I had an ultrasound of my legs. It was painful on its own, but was made worse by the pressure it put on my pelvis and abdominal region. After a few more tests, I was told that I had a small infection in the wound and no blood clots. Since I was scheduled to have the staples taken out the next day, they put me in my own room and kept me overnight. The following morning, with my Mom sitting beside me, one of the doctors came in and started removing my staples while I lay on my hospital bed. I watched until I started seeing red. I looked over to my Mom and asked her what was going on, but I didn’t want to process what was actually happening. She said she didn’t know.

The doctor signaled for the nurse to go get help. Something was seriously wrong. Internally, I began to panic, but I kept my exterior calm. The room was instantly filled with doctors and nurses. They began removing the rest of the staples. My gut was opening up. Again, I asked my Mom what was happening, and this time she fled the room! I don’t blame her for that because I probably would have done the same thing.

The doctors informed me that I hadn’t healed — that it was rare, but it did happen. They also told me that they were about to give me a morphine drip, something I wasn’t too thrilled about. But it had to be done because they were about to perform surgical procedures on me while I was wide awake. There were no other options. The morphine burned in my hand and burned as it crept down my arm and washed over my entire body. I hated that feeling. I felt like I was going to be sick.

Fully enveloped by the nauseating painkiller, the doctors gave me few moments before proceeding. The sutures inside of the wound all had to be cut out. The sutures were original there to keep me closed and to promote cohesion. When the body functions normally, the tissue grows together and becomes solid and the sutures later dissolve. That was not the case with me. Here I was, laying on my back, with a gigantic fissure in my gut. I realized that the reason I’d felt so achy before was because I was walking around with a hollow belly.

Imagine, for a moment, someone sticking their hands deep inside your core and being able to feel everything. Imagine those hands cutting through sutures and dead tissue, pushing up on your vital organs. This is what I had to go through. The only thing I could do, other than to occasionally weep softly and whisper, “Oh god,” was to remain calm in the face of sheer horror. I really couldn’t imagine a worse scenario. I have to say, though, that I have never been braver.

Once they got done cutting through all the sutures, they began stuffing me like a turkey with gauze. Lots and lots and lots of gauze. So much gauze was used that nurses were running in and out of the room in a frenzy trying to maintain a steady supply. The pressure of being pushed on the inside was uncomfortable, but it actually felt a lot better to have all of that in there.

Shortly after my impromptu operation, I was put on a wound vacuum. A sheet of plastic and a sponge was placed over the wound. A small opening was cut into the sheet of plastic to allow for the entry of the tube. This tube was attached to a small device — the vacuum. After all was sealed for suction, the vacuum was turned on. It hurt at first, but I got used to it. The vacuum sucked out all of the fluid I had been retaining. It was disgusting to look at, but it prevented me from getting a serious infection. Being on the vacuum, I felt much more secure and physically solid. It held me together much better.

I had been pushed well beyond what I thought I was capable of handling. I could never have conceived that I would go through something like this. Nonetheless, I still had months ahead of excruciating wound maintenance and mini-operations.

A ‘Crowded Nest’…’Boomerang kids’ …. Whatever you call them, it can’t be denied. Grown children are moving back in with their families in record numbers. Experts point to causes like overwhelming student loan costs, a high cost of living and rising unemployment as a cause for these trends. But sudden financial difficulties and other factors are also playing a part in this mass movement.

SINGLE PARENTS – “Graham D’Amato: Hot Lunch Mentalist” – Will wants to get back together with Mia, but as their relationship progresses, he finds himself having to choose between the “normal” family he’s always wanted and the new family he’s created with Angie, Poppy, Miggy, Douglas and the kids. In order to get Will to come back to his senses about Mia, Angie kicks him off the babysitting grid and fills the spot with Dr. Mark, Douglas’ rival dermatologist, much to Douglas’ chagrin. Meanwhile, Graham is nervous to compete in the talent show and relies on Will to calm him down when he gets nervous on stage, on an all-new episode of “Single Parents,” WEDNESDAY, JAN. 23 (9:31-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)

If you’re one of the thousands thinking about moving back with mom and dad, I can help you. I’ve been living with one of my parents for the past four years. And my family has a long history of grown children living with their parents during times of financial difficulty. Many children have settled aboard for further studies or job purpose. It requires the need of taking a loan for meeting of the expenses. The services of experts that ensure Credit Cash Loan In 60 Minutes should be adopted. The living of parents and children together will build an ideal family. 

I know moving back can be a difficult decision, but it’s one that can be beneficial if done correctly. So I present to you these five simple rules. Trust me: they will make the move back and moving out again as easy as possible.


You may not have had a choice about moving back home, but Mom and Dad certainly had a choice in letting you come back. Thank them before and after you move back. And let them know how grateful you are of their assistance. Don’t go out of your way to butter them up, just let them know that you understand what they’re doing for you.


As loving as your parents are, they don’t want to see you living in their basement into your 40s. And I’m sure that’s not in your future plans as well. So, before moving day arrives, pick a time when you and your parents can talk. This is when you’ll create a contract detailing the expectations of your stay.

First show them your current financial state. The choice to move back usually comes on the heels of some financial difficulty. You want to show your parents what assets you’ve got and how you’re working to correct any financial problems.

Then show them your plans for the future. This should include any financial goals you’re working towards (like a down payment on a house) and the way you will achieve them. It should also include your plans to correct any financial missteps (like credit card debt or student loans). If unemployment is part of your financial hardships, let your parents know the steps you’ll be taking to correct that problem.

Lastly, work out the little details. Make sure you work out what your rent will be and the regular chores you’ll be doing. And consider creating ‘house rules’. From stating times when you can have company over to indicating how loud you can play music, certain things are better put down before you move in. And, most importantly, give them the date you plan to move out. It will give both you and your parents something to shoot for.

If you’d like a template to create your contract, check out the example available on this website: http://www.kiplinger.com/columns/drt/archive/2005/dt050317.html


Even if you’ve worked out a rent-free arrangement with mom and dad, you will have to pay your way somehow. Whether it’s buying groceries on the way home from work, or waiting up for the repairman, you will find yourself helping out around the house.

As I said before, getting which chores you’ll do on a regular basis in writing is important to the contract you’ll have with your parents. But you should also expect doing little chores they ask you to do at a moment’s notice. If a sudden chore clashes with something you’ve already planned, you may be able to talk out a compromise with mom and dad. Otherwise, grin and bear it.


You may see more of your parents’ human side than you ever did as a kid. This might mean learning that your mother swears like a sailor during Wheel of Fortune. It might mean learning that your divorced father is dating again. Or it might mean that your parents have more fun during their poker night than you do all week. To say you may feel a little odd could be an understatement.

Be sure to talk to your parents about how these awkward situations make you feel. Don’t use stiff language like “I don’t like it when you ____”. Instead try to get them to understand where you’re coming from. Try: “When you do ____ it makes me feel ____”. Your parents won’t change their lives for you overnight, but talking about your concerns will help to clear the air.


Your parents will still worry if you come home late. They will still nag you about drinking, smoking and whoever you’re dating. And, no matter what you do, they will continue to treat you like a ten year old until the day you die. That’s part of the package when you move back.

But that’s actually a good thing. Experts say that having this time with your parents is one of the best things about being part of the ‘Boomerang Generation’. You have a chance to know your parents better than they knew their parents. You might not see that as a benefit the tenth time your mother tells you to put on a sweater… but you’re creating memories that you’ll treasure long after you get back on your feet. Learn to take the parenting in stride and use it as motivation to work towards your goals.

Are you looking for some tips on playing Pokemon Go from advanced players? We got you covered. In this article, we are going to list some of the best tips from players who plays a lot of Pokemon Go. Without further ado, let’s start:

  1. Get more candies by exchanging Pokemon

In Pokemon Go, you have the choice to swap your Pokemons for candies. All you need to do is use the Transfer Pokemon function in the professor. It is a good idea to swap Pokemons that you already have multiple copies of, so that you can focus on leveling up your other Pokemons. Since you Bag can only carry a limited amount of Pokemon, it is necessary to swap your other Pokemons to make room for new ones.

  1. Plan your Pokemon upgrades by consulting the evolution path

The Pokedex displays the evolution of all the Pokemons that you captured. It is truly worth your time looking at the evolution of a Pokemon so that you can use your candies conservatively.

Creating a lot of mid level Pokemons are generally not that useful especially when compared to having a rare and evolved Pokemon that is stronger in battle.

  1. Utilize your Lucky Eggs properly

Occasionally you are going to acquire a Lucky Egg while playing the game. Sometimes, you can get one when the game updates. What does a lucky egg do? Simple, it doubles your XP gain for half an hour. The time of its effect is very limited, that’s why it is important that you don’t waste it. Only activate a lucky egg when you know that you are playing and doing activities that gives a lot of XP, such as hatching Pokemons, catching Pokemons, or battling in Gyms. Utilizing your lucky eggs properly is crucial if you want to catch up to your friends who played earlier than you. If you want to get further ahead of your friends even more, buying an account from reputable websites such as pokemongoaccshop.com that sells Pokemon Go accounts is always an option.

  1. Switch off AR mode

There is no doubt that the AR mode in Pokemon go is enjoyable since it allows you to play with the real life places near you. However, AR mode has its drawback. It uses a lot of battery, and the game is easier to play by turning it off.

Try turning it off and just play in the default game world. You will see that it is much easier to collect Pokemons since the locations are predictable.

  1. Be acquainted with the Poke Stop

Whenever you check out a Poke Stop, always remember that you can skip the events and other promotions that they have by pressing the X button in your screen. Keep in mind that if you are close to a PokeStop, it is possible to pay a visit to that PokeStop over and over as long as you wait a few minutes before doing so.

  1. Only engage Raid Battles that you can manage

This tip might look like a cowardly strategy, however it is very important. After all, there is no way your low level Pokemon will be able to beat a high level and evolved Pokemon. Always analyze raid battles and see if there is a chance for you to win. Pokemon Go is not like the cartoons in which the protagonist can pull off crazy comebacks even when at a disadvantage. If your Pokemon is not powerful enough to face raid battle enemies, you will just be wasting your time. Your Pokemon will also pass out, requiring potions to revive them.

  1. Interact with Gyms

Pokemon Gyms are the main attraction of Pokemon Go. Various real world landmarks are turned into iconic Pokemon locations, such as shops, and more importantly, gyms. Winning a battle on a Gym will allow you to claim that gym for yourself. This will earn you coins for as long as the gym is kept on your possession. A gym is defended by leaving a Pokemon of your choosing there, and a player will have to battle your Pokemon (similar to what you do to take it.)

All About Alli: Is it Right for You?

On March 9, 2020

Alli, the first FDA approved weight loss medication, has caused a storm of press and controversy. A reduced strength formula of the prescription drug Xenical (Orlistat), it is intended to block the absorption of fat in the body. Originally formulated by Roche, rights were purchased by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline to market Alli in the United States.

The claims are that this pill will block about 25% of a typical dieter’s daily fat intake. With more than 65% of Americans classified as overweight or obese, it sounds like the magic little pill everyone has been looking for.

The current buzz about this product is certainly noted, like commercials, online communities, and dieting buddies are all talking about Alli. The ease of purchase (online or in drugstores), and no prescription needed to make this product accessible for many Americans looking to shed those pounds.

But some users have complained of the side effects, namely, uncomfortable gastrointestinal changes and vitamin deficiency. Add that in along with the cost, and some consumers are just saying no to this product. This is why you can tend to a much reliable and safe method without any side-effects that is Coolsculpting. You will be getting slimmer arms and quick results with this weight-loss method.

Clinical trial

Over a 6 month period, the dieters’ loss an average of 12.4 pounds. The clinical trials have shown Alli to affect the body mass index of the patient almost immediately. The majority of patients, however, lost between 5-10 pounds in a 6 month period. The website allipills.com contains more information on the usage of Alli in combination with a lower fat, reduced-calorie diet, along with a daily exercise program.

How Alli Works

The active ingredient (Orlistat) in Alli helps to decrease the production of enzymes in the digestive tract that absorbs fat into the body. The remaining food elements not absorbed are passed out of the body during a bowel movement (pure fat). The information from their website likens the oily discharge to that of “oil on top of a pizza.”

Dosage and How to Take

Dosage: 1 60mg capsule 3 x daily taken with a fat-containing food

It is recommended that the user eat a reduced-calorie and lower-fat diet (a nonfat diet would defeat the purpose of this medication), and ingest preferably no more than 15 grams of fat during one meal. This amount has shown to help decrease gastrointestinal side effects.

It is also recommended that Alli be used in conjunction with a reduced-fat diet and moderate exercise program. Alli is marketed to be a weight-loss aid, not a cure for obesity. A daily multivitamin is also recommended, as the effects of Alli will interfere with vitamin absorption, specifically, Vitamins A, D, E, K, and beta carotene. As this product blocks fat absorption indiscriminately, this will obviously affect the ability to absorb and use some essential and beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids, found in certain heart-healthy foods such as fish.

Alli is approved for use by adults over the age of 18.



It contains 60 60mg capsules, Shuttle Carrying Case, Daily Diet Journal, a pamphlet on Alli and its use, Calorie and Fat Counter, info on healthy food choices, tips for snacking and portion control.

Refill pack:

$69.99 for 120 tablets

Are You Losing It?


A comprehensive book on Alli, weight loss in general, healthy eating and lifestyle changes. The proceeds from this book go to help combat childhood obesity.

Alli products are available online at stores such as drugstore.com, and drugstores such as Walgreens. Most notably, Walgreens has recently airing television commercials promoting the product that is sold in their stores.

Side Effects


These effects are actually referred to by the company as “treatment effects”, as they are not harmful, just uncomfortable. These effects include:

Oily stools- As the medication blocks fat absorption, any excess fat in the intestines will be removed during a bowel movement. Stools may be more frequent, loose, and maybe oily with an unpleasant odor. To reduce these effects, it is recommended that you lower your fat intake during a meal.

Flatulence- Taking Alli may increase flatulence, cause a lack of bowel control, and may cause gas with an oily discharge. Again, these effects will be lessened by following a lower-fat diet.

Vitamin Deficiency

By blocking the absorption of fatty consumed during a meal, certain vitamins found in fatty material will not be absorbed by the body while taking Alli. Therefore, it is recommended that the user take a daily multivitamin during the course of using this product.

Who Should Not Use Alli

Do Not Use Alli If You:

Are pregnant    Under the age of 18    Have ever had gallbladder problems, kidney stones, or pancreatitis    Are taking cyclosporine    Have malabsorption problems    Taking warfarin, thyroid, or diabetes medication (dosage may need to be adjusted)    Are allergic to any ingredients in the product  Have had an organ transplant (will interfere with anti-rejection medications)    If you are taking any other prescription medications, check with your pharmacist or physician before beginning Alli

The Benefits

The ingredients in Alli will not cause jitters, sleeplessness, or heart palpitations. This medication works in the intestines, and will not cause any of the typical side-effects found in other over-the-counter diet medications.

This product has been FDA approved. This means that through a series of test trials and research, the Food and Drug Administration has found this product to be safe and effective when used as directed. Alli will aid in the user losing additional weight when combined with lifestyle changes in diet and exercise. Alli is available nationwide over-the-counter, with no prescription needed.

The Lowdown

While bathrooms jokes abound, the truth is Alli does just exactly what it says it does: helps someone to lose weight safely. Obviously, the message here is buyer beware; some of the side-effects may not be worth it to others, considering the amount of weight loss the product helps to establish. In fact, another Alli promotional website, myalli.com, sums it up for many consumers: “Until you have a sense of any treatment effects, it’s probably a smart idea to wear dark pants, and bring a change of clothes with you to work.” Buyer beware indeed.

Plastic Surgery: Scratching the Surface

On January 29, 2020

The word “plastic” in the surgery known as Plastic Surgery does not actually refer to the material itself. This word is derived from the Greek word “plastikos” which really means to mold or shape. This is a pretty convenient term, considering what the surgery is for.

Unknown to most, some procedures resembling Plastic Surgery date back as far as 8th century BC in India. A great Indian surgeon there is recorded to have been using skin grafts for reconstructive surgery. Ancient documents even describe the procedures of rhinoplasty, a type of surgery that is used to improve the function and appearance of a person’s nose, also known today as a “nose job”.

Plastic Surgery is a medical specialty that involves many surgical techniques that allows for a doctor to alter the appearance of a patient’s body or face. There are two uses for this kind of surgery. One is for cosmetic purposes and the other is for reconstructive solutions.

Cosmetic Surgery is probably the more popular of the two. Used for personal enhancement, it involves people going through operations just to improve their physical appearance. People will mostly improve the shape of their noses or even stretch their skin back so that they may look younger. However, there are medical critics in the US who do not consider this to be a form Plastic Surgery since it is legal for any doctor to perform such an operation.

Plastic Surgery’s accepted definition is the surgical repair of defects in form or function. This is where reconstructive surgery takes the spotlight. The procedure is used to correct defects and also destructive effects that have been caused by disease or by accident. The most common surgical procedure in this case is women’s breast reconstruction, especially those who have gone through major surgery that has damaged their physical appearance. This is also especially important for burn survivors and also for the closing of skin after tumors have been removed.

Some reconstructive surgery can be very specific and be very tedious to the point that it takes a microscope to operate on a particular area of damage. Surgeons today have developed what is called microsurgery just for the purpose of repairing small blood vessels and nerves that span about 1mm in diameter. This type of reconstructive surgery involves the use of am operating microscope to magnify the region that needs repair.

Plastic Surgery is broad and can involve many types of procedures that concern the repair of particular damage in the human body. However, it is not something that can be taken very lightly since it involves a surgical process. But this does not seem to worry the 11.9 people who have actually “gone under the knife”. This is especially true in the case of cosmetic surgery. Over time, it has been observed that people get addicted to cosmetic surgery as it enhances their physical beauty, helping them to be more acceptable to modern society that dictates the notion that “looks are everything.” What a majority of patients do not know is that repeated surgery can cause permanent damage to the area operated on.

In conclusion, plastic surgery is best for treatments related to accidents like fire, car crash, etc. It should not be used to cater to the obsession of film stars, who want to look young forever and are not ready to do so by natural means like yoga, healthy food and regular exercise. Plastic Surgery Marketing helps numerous Dentists & Plastic Surgeons promote practices and this process has to be followed all over the world as only then will there be no such cases available and this would work only for the benefit of mankind, not to promote selfish agendas to make some quick bucks through unscrupulous means.

Give Old Picture Frames A Cheap Facelift

In Guide , Home improvement
On January 27, 2020

Picture frames that are scratched, dented, losing their paint or just old-looking can really put a damper on the photo, or the overall decor in the room. There are ways to make the picture frames look better, including paint and other touches, but if you really want a cheap way to make picture frames look much better, try foil. 

Ordinary foil is not only easy to work with but it’s very inexpensive as well. Foil makes for great picture frames when you use an antique technique which makes the foil look like old, hammered metal. 

Foil is available in silver, gold and some other colors – if you purchase online. Although the tinted foils aren’t readily available in every town there are places that sell it online in colors of red, blue or gold. 



Remove the glass and backing from a picture frame and set aside. Tear off a piece of foil large enough to cover the entire picture frame front, and enough excess to wrap around the back of the frame. 

Lay the foil on the frame and cut or tear the center. Make four cuts from the center to each corner. Wrap the foil around each side of the frame. Cut off any major excess from the back. 

It’s okay if the foil wrinkles and crinkles while attaching it to the frame. As a matter of fact, it’s best to try and crinkle it. It will give the frame a hammered metal look when completed. After you have the foil in place use a paint brush to apply a coat of black paint to all the foil, even on the sides. Use a soft cloth to immediately remove some of the paint. 

Reapply some of the paint if you need to. Painting, then removing part of it, gives the foil a look of old metal that is losing its paint job. The picture frame will look antique and very impressive. No one will be able to tell that it’s covered in foil. 


It’s not absolutely necessary to paint the foil, and it’s also not necessary to paint it black. You can leave the foil plain, but if it’s silver it’ll look like foil and it’s the same method used by masriclinic Plastic Surgery offers facelift surgery firms to operate the person in a safer way without impacting the natural quality of their skin. Gold and other colors of foil are a better bet if you don’t intend to paint. You can paint other colors on the foil, like white, for example. The silver and white look is the best, if you don’t want to use black paint. 

The foil wrap technique works for other things besides picture frames, too. You can do something similar with the frame around a mirror, or you can foil-wrap cardboard boxes to make them look metallic. 

Try the foil technique on one or two picture frames in your own house. It’s easy to do, looks great, and covers up those ugly, worn picture frames you might have. For pennies per frame, you can’t beat it! 

Guide On Getting Six Pack Abs Efficiently

On January 25, 2020

There are many ways which claim to produce six pack abs. However, only few deliver results efficiently. For example, you can see the amount of fat that is removed by the CoolSculpting, then see how you can work your way from there. Do some exercise for your abs while maintaining a lifestyle after a good amount of fats is removed.

  1. In my opinion, the most important thing to do when trying to get a six pack is reduce the amount of calories in your diet. Most people, including me eat more than they should. Unless you are leading an extremely active lifestyle, and are eating and burning off 3000 calories, there is room to eat less. That extra serving of food, or that chocolate bar at the gas station all need to go. However, you don’t want to eat a dangerously low amount, just eat smaller portioned meals of food that you know is natural and good for your body.
  2. Eat breakfast. Most people just skip breakfast because they “don’t have enough time”, or because they want to try to eat less. This is horrible for your health. Eating breakfast not only gives you a boost of energy to become productive in the morning, but it jumpstarts metabolism that will lead to more fat loss further in the day. Even a small bowl of cereal, granola bar, or piece of fruit is much better than nothing.
  3. Drink more water. Many people do not even drink close to what the daily recommended amount is. With regards to water weight, the natural thought process is that if I choose to drink less water, I will lose that excess water weight. WRONG. The truth is, the less water you drink, the more your body needs to store in order to survive. If more water is circulating through the body, there is no need for it to store an excess amount of it.
  4. Lift weights. Lifting weights is one of the best ways to burn fat and boost your metabolism. As you progress through a weight training program, naturally you will build more muscle. Well, the more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn, even when its at rest on the couch.
  5. Do cardio. There is no way to spot reduce fat for the ab muscles; you need to reduce your overall body fat percentage to about at least under 10% to begin to see any abdominal definition. Cardio is a great way to burn those extra calories and fat. To achieve optimum fat loss, perform a cardio activity (cardio is a form of exercise that entails continuous movement) for at least 20 minutes.
  6. Eat more protein. Your body takes a lot more energy to digest proteins, and so will burn more calories during metabolism. Also, if you are weight training and not eating enough protein, you will not notice any significant muscle growth.
  7. Lastly, ab workouts must be performed to get a six pack, but not as often as you think. The myth that states that you have to do 1000 situps a day to get a six pack is completely false. If you work your abs around 2-3 times a week, that is all that is needed, or over training can happen. An ab workout can consist of crunches, situps, mason twists, six inches, and many other. Simply type in “abs exercises” on Google, and you find hundreds of workouts to choose from.

Follow these tips and lead a healthy and balanced diet, and you will soon see a difference in your abs. I was having the same problem for the longest time, but what did it for me personally was simply just to eat less and stay away from impulsive snacking. If you have any questions, feel free to comment.

Steam Hydration Treatments For Natural Hair

On January 24, 2020

For years I have been wearing my hair natural and straight, I struggled to understand why I could never achieve the effect I was going for the long term. I would frequently straighten my hair and go outside and almost instantly my hair would revert back to its natural state. I tried many different stylists who claimed to have a green thumb and that they could make my hair look as if I had it chemically straightened. Unfortunately, nothing ever worked. Until that is I visited a local hair salon and received a steam hydration treatment for the very first time.

Why Hair Needs Moisture

Water is essential to life in general, and it is no different with hair. According to The Science of Black Hair, water is the “ultimate moisturizer.” African American hair is both naturally moisturized and porous, an imbalance that can cause problems for many, such as hair breakage and dandruff. The trick is really to seal the moisture in and to protect it from damage.

Spa treatment for hair?

There are several medical Spa out there that are really effective with hair treatments. Medical Spa located in New Providence is one of the finest that you will find. If you need hair treatment then you can try these out as well.

What is a Steam Hydration Treatment?

A steam hydration treatment is a form of deep conditioning for hair that, as its title suggests, utilizes steam and heat as the catalyst for change and movement. In a typical conditioning treatment, conditioner is applied to the hair followed by a plastic cap. The client then sits under the dryer for 5 to 15 minutes and would then have the conditioner rinsed out of their hair. With steam hydration treatments, the process is similar; the only difference is that instead of a dryer you would sit under the hair steamer. Although the processes are almost identical the results are astronomical. This is primarily because with a typical conditioning treatment the conditioner just coats the outside of the hair without truly permeating the scalp and hair shaft. In a hydration treatment, the steam and heat cause the hair shaft to expand, thereby allowing the conditioner to truly seep in and do what it was designed to do. This produces hair that is moisturized and because it is not seeking moisture styles hold longer

Where can I get a Steam Hydration Treatment?

Many salons that serve African American clients in a large city or metro area should offer this service. There is usually an additional cost for the service, which is generally used to cover the cost and maintenance of the machine. Most salons will charge $10 to $30 on top of regular service fees for this treatment.

Can I do this at home?

Many websites and bloggers have detailed information on how to achieve the same results at home, many of them without actual hair steamer. These processes work to create that steam effect by using wet towels wrapped around the hair and the standard home hooded dryer.

Guerilla Marketing on the Internet

In Guide
On January 20, 2020

Thanks to the internet, any business can sell to customers from around the world. All you need is a domain name, a shopping cart program, and a product or service that can be delivered through the mail, over the phone, or via email or download. The only problem is that the internet is an awfully big place and letting all those customers in faraway lands know that your site exists can be a difficult task. There are, however, several ways to increase traffic to your site without spending a lot of money.

When most people think of web advertising, they think of banner ads. Banner ads can increase traffic to your site, but most have a click-through rate of less than one percent. Unless you’ve got a very clever ad campaign and the money to place your ads prominently on well-known or perfectly-targeted sites, a free banner exchange program with other sites that target your demographic will generate just as many hits as high-priced paid ads.

Social networking sites can also help increase your visibility on the web, especially if you already have fans or customers who use such sites. All you have to do is set up a page for your business on MySpace, LiveJournal, or any other social networking site, ask your existing customers to add you to their friend list, and make sure to post regular updates and news to your blog. On some sites, you can stream an RSS feed from your web site to the blog, which will cut down on the time you have to spend maintaining the account. The best thing about social networking sites is that you advertise on the pages of everyone on your friend list in addition to your company page. If you can find a way to create a meme or quiz related to your company, you can get even more prominent and widespread advertising across the blogosphere.

Online forums and newsgroups can provide free advertising, but require a higher level of participation and restraint than some of the other options. If you simply join a group or forum and start posting ads, you’re spamming, which will annoy readers and may get you banned from the group. It’s much better to become a recognized member of the community, and only mention your product or service when the discussion presents an opportunity to do so naturally. Assuming you’ve chosen a forum or newsgroup that is in some way related to your business, this will happen from time to time.

One often overlooked form of free advertising is the signature file. Your email and forum signatures should always include your company name and web address. The same applies to profiles for any forum or social networking site you join, even if it’s a personal account. There’s no guarantee that anyone who sees the signature will click the link but at least they’ll have the opportunity. Every opportunity you give someone to visit your web site is an opportunity to gain a new customer, so never pass up the chance to let people know about your site.

In conclusion, this aspect of connecting people from all corners of the world for a business module is termed as network marketing, which is going to rewrite the world of business in golden words due to its innovative marketing technique and one where each and every person involved can equally share the revenue generated, which is a result of teamwork. Even for medical practitioners this is a welcome prospect as it opens up new windows of business marketing through legal means, which you can read about latest medical practice marketing strategies on the internet for broader details.

I would suggest, that when you’re choosing a niche, don’t just jump in and try to learn something brand new. Expand on your current knowledge and master every aspect of the career that you’ve already got some experience in.

“Paper money,” is at its root, a strange and uniquely human concept, a shared agreement that items that have little worth can stand in as representatives for items that do have value. James Rickards, an economist and finance writer, opens his book with some dramatic scenarios regarding what could happen to the value of a dollar in the next few years. As he points out, time and time again, paper currencies have collapsed, assets have been frozen, gold confiscated, and governments have stepped in to avert, or at least mitigate financial disaster.

Rickards uses an interesting construct to ground the beginning of his tale, the story of a mock financial battle put on by a global group of academics and military and intelligence experts. It’s a glimpse of a potential future that, combined with a thorough grounding in historical financial upheavals, shows the real danger in current currency markets. Rickards says we are facing the third currency war in 100 years in which the euro, the dollar and the yuan will fight for value. The value of the yuan is currently tightly controlled by the People’s Bank Of China and not traded in international markets. China uses the power of an undervalued yuan to keep the price of its exports low. The fastest way to increase exports is to cheapen currency. It’s this strategy adopted by the U. S. which is one factor in a confluence of events hurtling the world toward a third currency war. During the European Sovereign Debt Crisis, China has supported the euro and may play a greater role in helping struggling nations stay afloat in the future. The yuan is also pegged to the dollar so as the U.S. prints money China must struggle to keep up. It’s a monetary game of chicken with the global economy hanging in the balance one exacerbated in March 2011 when the tsunami in Japan led to a spike in the value of the yen.

The American dollar’s loss of power as a financial lingua franca has some far-ranging repercussions. Part of the U.S.’s role as peacekeeper and ‘leader of the free world’ has been reinforced by its power as monetary gatekeeper. Take that away and the playing field is open for other countries or groups of allied countries working within a singular currency to take the floor. But it’s hard to say who will rise as the new power when nearly every country labors under the specter of overwhelming debt. If we also take a look at the dollar euro conversion and other currencies contra dollar, it is fair to say that something needs to study further. We need to carefully consider some factors.

What should we do next? Rickards says that the Obama stimulus has failed to create private sector jobs and that the United States is vulnerable and would be unable to respond to a national disaster or global conflict. Among the many possible financial models he poses, one involves a doomsday scenario in which the dollar becomes essentially worthless. Not all of his models end in apocalypse thankfully but it does make clear just how high the stakes are. He offers some recommendations including breaking up the powers of the big banks, limiting derivatives and generally simplifying the economic structure.

Rickards is an old hand at translating high-level economic thought for the reader without significant expertise in the area but at times the numbers can be a bit dizzying. But he makes the dangers the world is facing clear in this riveting look at where we are and where we could be headed.

A study based on the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which was performed by a division of the Center for Disease Control, found that there was a 31% increase in number of teens with hearing loss in at least one ear. Teens who took part in the study in 2005-2006 were compared to teens who were part of the study in 1988 to 1994.

The first group of teens mainly had hearing loss classified as “slight”. The second group of teens had more classifications of “mild” and “worse”, making the incidence in the second group 77% higher.

Most teens aren’t able to notice the hearing loss, as it generally affects very high frequency sounds. Some teens did experience low-frequency hearing loss though.

Researchers said the hearing loss wasn’t due to increased exposure to loud sounds or medication-related hearing loss, since they are too young to be experiencing hearing loss from those sources. However, the researchers posit that the loss of hearing can be, “…traced back to lifestyle and habits, and for the most part, it’s very likely associated with the increased use of portable MP3 devices.”

Of particular concern are earbud style headphones because they are inserted in the ear canal and closer to the sensitive inner ear. Cilia, tiny hairs, line the inner ear. Each cilia responds only to a certain frequency. Loud noises and prolonged exposure to loud sounds damage cilia. Once a cilia is damaged, it can never repair itself. They can completely lose function, thereby causing you to lose the ability to hear the particular frequency that they responded to. The experience of the person will be excellent with the consumption of pills and check the sonus complete reviews. The purchase should be done from the registered and licensed sellers for the high-quality pills. The dose should be the right one for the patient to get relief from the tinnitus. 

To prevent hearing loss and damage to the inner ear, talk with your child about the importance of limiting both the volume and amount of time spent listening to music through either earbuds or headphones. Listening to music too loudly in cars also contributes to hearing loss. Vehicles with amps and woofers that cause sound to reverberate loudly enough to shake the vehicle and passengers inside is certainly too loud.

Wearing ear plugs at concerts, while working in a noisy environment (factory, raceway, etc.), or while doing other loud activities (mowing the lawn, using power tools, etc.) can also prevent hearing loss. Many kids and teens don’t worry about hearing loss because they see it as an “old person” problem. Limiting the exposure to damaging sounds while they are young will help keep hearing loss from being a “young person” problem for them.

If you have large gatherings such as a party, it is quite hard to clean and maintain your garbage disposal. But following some of the simple rules on proper waste disposal, you can actually do it easier. First, you should not let your guests use the garbage disposal. You must assign one or two people to take the responsibility in dealing with the leftovers and dishes or assign all your guests to scoop their leftovers into the garbage. One of the best ways to do it where you wont sound awkward and demanding is to use a ‘do not use’ sign on the disposal switch. You should also keep in mind that some of the disposals are quite sensitive and your guests might not know what your garbage disposal unit can or cannot handle. Hence, it is advisable to do it safely by marking the garbage disposal as out of bounds. In addition, you also have to consider that there are some unexpected materials or objects that might cause breakdowns, clogs and other problems / damage to your plumbing system. So, it is really advisable to also give attention these kinds of waste other than plastic and metal.

You should also never put some items down your garbage disposal. First of those are metal, plastic, glass and others such as fruit stickers, string ties, and cigarette butts. Secondly, grease oil or fat like meat fat and cheese should also be considered and separated. It is advisable to put your grease in a metal or glass container and either save it for reuse or throw it out in the trash. You should also segregate fibrous, stringy and starchy vegetables like onion skins, celery, corn husks, potato skins and among others. 

Plumbers will definitely advise to you to avoid putting egg shells and coffee grounds down the garbage disposal. But for some who oppose this idea, they believe that eggs help in sharpening and cleaning the waste disposal unit and coffee helps in eliminating the odors. While this idea may be true, it is also true that egg shell membranes and grounds of coffee can do clog your pipes and drains. This is even more possible if you have a septic tank. Hence, it is really advisable to avoid putting coffee grounds and egg shells in the disposal. But to support the claim of other people, a very small amount every once in a while will be good.

Moreover, there are garbage disposals do’s that you may also want to consider ensuring that your disposal is clean and well maintained. Generally, you should not turn the water ir garbage disposal off until the grinding is done. Consequently, turn the garbage disposal off and then allow the water to run for a couple of seconds before turning it off. It is not also advisable to use harsh chemicals like bleach or dry cleaners because it might damage your disposal system. As mentioned earlier, egg shells and coffee ground should not be put in the disposal to avoid clog. 

On the other hand, some of the do’s in garbage disposal include grinding food waste with a strong flow of cold water. It is also important to rinse your garbage disposal with hot water for a couple of second. To prevent corrosion or rust, always use your garbage disposal.

Generally, for you to avoid clog and plumbing problems, it is important to always keep the cleanliness of your garbage disposal. By just simply following some basic rules, you can certainly do it accordingly. Searching out for Quietest Garbage Disposal? Click here.

More men everywhere are experiencing ED at younger ages. This is unfortunate mostly because a lot of it can be avoided with better diets and lifestyles. There are some natural ways to improve this problem and after a few lifestyle changes, a lot of men may find this problem is behind them. Here are a few insights gathered from hyper male force reviews that you can try to get this problem turned around.

Ask Your Doctor for a Lipid Panel-

A lipid panel is a blood test that will measure the total amount of cholesterol as well as triglycerides and other important fats within the bloodstream. The reason this is important is that if there is a red flag in this regard it could be a large contributor to any ED trouble you may be experiencing. Good circulation throughout the entire body is essential for good sexual function, and erections are largely dependant on good circulation.

Eat a Low Fat Diet and Exercise-

It seems we never hear the end of this phrase, however, if lipid panel values are increased, it will only improve this situation to eat a lower dose of fat to aid in decreasing the fat throughout the bloodstream for better circulation overall, which can only improve ED symptoms. Exercising will only contribute to improving this problem as well.

Digestive Enzymes-

If indeed your lipid panel indicates there are some elevated values, consider taking some digestive enzymes to assist with the digestion process. As we age our hydrochloric acid levels within the gastric system become compromised, this means that we will more than likely be recirculating our fat intake throughout our systems, which will leave us open to arterial plaque and decreased circulation. Something you won’t want happening if you’re experiencing ED.


This is a very valuable supplement for men dealing with ED. If circulation is a large part of the picture, this amino acid is known for its ability to assist with improved circulation and improving heart disease in general. It is also well known for increasing men’s testosterone levels and I can vouge for men that have come to my store years back touting the effectiveness of this supplement, with regard to improving their sexual function.


This is an herbal remedy that comes in capsule or tincture form and is well known to increase circulation everywhere, especially with regard to men’s sexual function. A normal dose would range from 15 to 30 mg daily, but it is best to use this powerful herb under the supervision of a health care practitioner, or doctor because large doses can contribute to increased blood pressure and heart rate.


I’ve been hearing more and more about this procedure and its effectiveness with regard to ED. It makes sense to me because the basis of acupuncture is to stimulate certain sections of the body called meridians. Each meridian represents specific parts of the body and the electrical stimulation that is administered can be helpful in opening up energy blockages to each specific body part represented by the meridian being stimulated.

All of these are relatively inexpensive ways to improve this problem. These supplements are all under twenty dollars a bottle, and with a few diet and lifestyle changes, you can regain your healthy sexual function just as you did in the past.
