Recent studies are beginning to show that the elusive liquid has been right under our noses the entire time. It makes up most of our planet and it makes up the majority of our bodies. The magical liquid has been with us since the beginning of time but we are only now starting to understand the wondrous qualities of H2O, better known as water.

The fluids that flow throughout our body create a sense of well being and help to keep us healthy. The human body is a water tank built to exist on minerals and water.

AspirinAspirin to some, acetylsalicylic acid to others, this synthetic compound helps relieve pain and reduce inflammation. So it comes to no surprise that many doctors recommend it when dealing with fevers or pain recovery. A few even believe it can help prevent heart attacks.

But is this pill really some sort wonder pill? Aspirin is already a source to use to help reduce fevers, relieve pain especially in muscular joints, and stop headaches. Now a study earlier this year suggests aspirin can combine with enzyme GAPDH which causes human cells to die on purpose.

By limiting GAPDH, aspirin could limit cell death and thus stop diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Another recent study shows that daily usage of a low doses (81-100 milligrams or less) of aspirin for at least a decade can reduce the threat of cancer up to 35-50 percent. These studies are coming out now because scientists only recently began to figure out why aspirin works even though it has been regularly used for more than a century. Its medicinal uses were actually first theorized way back around 400 B.C. by a physician named

The Benefits of Deep Breathing

Deep BreathingWhen we were born, we knew how to breathe correctly. We instinctively knew to breathe deeply. Our breaths were rhythmical and relaxed. At the time of our very first breath, we knew what to do.

Somewhere along the line we forgot how to breathe deeply. We may have been frightened, stressed or shocked. We may have panicked and our automatic response was to breathe quickly into our chests. Over time this became our new habit. When I look around a yoga class, I see most people are shallow breathing. But if we do this for a long period of time, we begin to think this is normal.

As you sit at your computer now, notice what your breath is doing. Now breathe deeply. Notice what your shoulders are doing and how your stomach is feeling.

Is Paranoia Total Awareness When It Comes to Health

ParanoiaI have yet to meet many adults who weren’t interested in staying healthy, but each of us being unique find are own paths. Perhaps it begins with our parents telling us to do certain things like eat a good breakfast, or bouts of illness we experiences during our lifetimes. I believe that keeping healthy is amazing when it comes to quality of life, not always in terms of longevity. As far as I know there are two things we can’t choose, when we are born, and when we die. I also think many unhealthy choices are out of our control, the air we breathe, the chemicals in the food we ingest, our genes, and the viruses we acquire unknowingly from others. It would seem that what is considered good for us today, might be frowned upon in the future. Therefore becoming paranoid about a person’s health could be an exercise in futility.

The Health of the Immune and Lymphatic System

Health of the ImmuneInside the body, the immune system is made up of an ‘army’ of special cells. These defenders each have different functions and are located in different areas of the body. For instance, some do their work in the bloodstream, tonsils, appendix and spleen, while others work in the gut and lymph nodes.

For the purposes of this article, we are going to look at the specific role of the lymphatic system in supporting immunity.

What is the lymphatic system?

The lymphatic system is made up of:

Lymphocytes: These are a form of small white blood cell that determine the type of immune response to infectious microorganisms and other foreign substances that enter the body.

Lymph: This is a clear fluid, which bathes the tissues and carries immune cells (such as B and T lymphocytes). The lymphatic system collects excess fluids, nutrients, gases, ions, hormones, enzymes and plasma proteins from surrounding tissues and returns them to the blood circulation, once pathogens, toxins and waste matter have been filtered out.

Lymph vessels: Fluids move out of our blood capillaries into tissue spaces,

New Innovations for Varicose Veins Treatment

Veins TreatmentWhen vascular problems result in uncomfortable swelling and discoloration of the lower extremities, a doctor may recommend varicose veins treatment. In the past, medical techniques often involved painful procedures that did not always effectively or permanently address the problems. New technology has resulted in more options for better resolution of this painful malady.

New Ways to Diagnose

Even diagnostic techniques have changed significantly with modern medical technological advancements. Instead of a Doppler device pressed firmly against the leg to detect the areas where the vascular flow is diminished, special ultrasound tools provide faster results. Modern ultrasound machines enable a physician to examine the entire landscape of the leg to see all the intricacies of the circulatory system. The resulting image is both sharp and two-dimensional. This image is a useful tool physicians use to determine the exact vein that is causing problems.

Old Treatments

Years ago, patients had to undergo uncomfortable procedures for varicose veins treatment. A physician would insert a flexible rod under the skin near the groin, and then pass the rod through the entire vein. The physician would then attach a metal

The procedure is less invasive and recommended to patients with early to mid-stages of knee osteoarthritis. Doctors may opt for total knee replacement if the case of osteoarthritis is severe or in the last stages.

Orthopedic surgeons also recommend the treatment if your knee pains you as you stand from a sitting position or after walking for a short distance. The procedure is also recommended if you experience knee swelling and/or knee locking.
