Why Exercise is So Important

It’s easy to get intimidated by the word exercise. You may think of all those fitness influencers effortlessly working out, or even just people at your local gym knowing what they’re doing. Exercise is for everyone and it’s important to move your body. If you’re thinking about starting your fitness journey, here’s a boost to get you going.

Physical Health

It pretty much goes without saying that exercise is good for your physical health, but we may as well cover some of the basics to get you motivated. Regular exercise can help reduce your risk of getting chronic conditions, like diabetes or heart diseases. Even some kinds of cancers. It can also help you sleep better. You may be tempted to go all out with a new exercise routine, but you might injure yourself. If you experience medical negligence, there are people who can help.

Start Small

You don’t have to torture yourself at the gym or slog out a 5k run. You can start small. When you begin exercising, you want to find things you actually enjoy doing - that way you’ll keep doing them and form a habit. Whether it’s going out for a walk every day, dancing around your kitchen, or trying yoga - find the activity that works for you. It’s ok if you’re nervous to try something new, everyone starts like that. Even those fitness people you see had to start somewhere.

Mental Health

While you’re probably aware that exercise helps your body, did you know it also helps your mind? Physical activity has a huge impact on your mental wellbeing. It can improve your mood and self-esteem. It can also make you feel less stressed and anxious. You shouldn’t view exercise as something you have to do, but something you want to do to make yourself feel better.


Exercising can also help you feel connected with people. Even for those people who prefer to work-out alone, they feel like they’re part of a community. Whether you take part in online fitness classes or simply nod at your fellow runners - you’re all doing something together. Or, if you do need the motivation of another person to help get you started, exercising gives you a great excuse to hang out with a friend.

Exercise is not about looking a certain way, but feeling a certain way. Moving your body can make you feel better in more ways than one. What motivates you to exercise?

3 Myths About Adolescent Eating Disorder Treatment, Debunked

Residential eating disorder treatment is generally considered to be the most effective way to effectively treat bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, and other disorders, But some people may feel apprehensive about going into treatment. Before entering a residential treatment program, many adolescents and families have heard some myths about what residential treatment is like and maintain some fears about what they’ll face. After all, there will be new responsibilities, a new location, a new schedule, and separation from the day-to-day schedule they are used to. 

Despite these fears or hesitations, there's nothing to worry about; in fact, in addition to providing solid psychological and medical residential treatment programs, residential eating disorder programs are increasingly comfortable and homey. Modern residential eating disorder treatment facilities are nothing like the sometimes negative media portrayal – they’re places of healing and growth, not institutional, cold hospital-like settings. Here are some common concerns people have about entering a residential treatment facility, and reasons not to be worried about them.

1. It will be like a prison

In the media, mental health treatment centers are portrayed as sterile, fluorescent-lit hospitals where clients are held involuntarily. This perception of residential treatment facilities, often based on outdated and old-fashioned ideas about mental health treatment from movies like Gia or Girl, Interrupted, is truly out of date in 2021. The simple fact of the matter is that residential treatment programs are often luxurious and comfortable, and residents are NEVER held involuntarily.    

Normally speaking, residential treatment for adolescents with an eating disorder is strictly structured, however, creating a focused space where clients can address the underlying symptoms that influence the eating disorder as well as work on a positive relationship with food and eating. This means that a comfortable, home-like setting is to be expected since a feeling of comfort and safety is key to eating disorder recovery.

2. I’ll have to retake my grade in school

Eating disorders like anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and most other eating disorders often (but not always) first appear during adolescence. This means a statistically large amount of cases will appear in people who are still in middle school or high school, stretching out into college years. These are important periods in students' development and their college prep. Of course, this can be a huge concern for both students and parents.

Thankfully, adolescent-focused residential treatment centers normally include a scholastic program as part of their daily routine. For long-term residential stays, there is normally a time set aside each day for maintaining the client’s educational path. At the highest quality residential treatment centers, they’ll have certified education professionals to teach lessons and provide tutoring in line with the client’s educational track. They will also coordinate coursework and lessons with the client’s school and parents, ensuring that eating disorder treatment won’t interfere with their education.

3. I’ll be away from home for so long

Another common fear regarding residential treatment programs is that the client will be stuck in treatment for months or years on end. While treatment can take a long time to achieve a full recovery, residential treatment is usually not needed for that length of time. Even for 30-day sessions, though, there might be fears that it will become a dreary, repetitive routine. Thankfully, most quality programs include various excursions and exposure therapies that take clients out of the facility, for learning experiences, and mental well-being.

For example, as part of nutritional and meal-planning purposes, a group of residential eating disorder clients might take an excursion to an open market and do a little shopping in preparation for a meal. Excursions to visit the movies, a live show, nearby attractions like parks, or even to the mall not only make the time fly by faster but also provide a way to put recovery lessons into everyday practice.

Residential Treatment Programs Can Be More

The modern eating disorder treatment experience is one that can be personally and academically fulfilling. It’s certainly not the desperate, boring, difficult experience many people imagine it to be. If you or a loved one has received a diagnosis of an eating disorder, don’t wait. Seek out a quality adolescent residential treatment facility today and get started on a happier, healthier life.

A New Way; Emerging Treatment Methods for Binge Eating Disorder

Ever since it was added to the official list of eating disorders in the DSM-V (the diagnostic manual for mental health disorders), the need for binge eating disorder (BED) treatment has become obvious.  BED is the most common form of eating disorder, but treatment is still in its relative infancy as compared to treatment for other eating disorders like anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. A binge eating recovery center that offers personalized programs and non-traditional methodology can often make greater strides in treatment than a one-size-fits-all treatment program, and for that reason eating disorder treatment centers are employing new, evidence-based, and holistic treatment methods to help their clients.

Although Western medicine has its place in eating disorder treatment, as it does in all forms of modern medicine, more holistic and alternative treatment methods have increasingly become centerpieces of eating disorder treatment. As complementary components to a more traditional talk-therapy methodology, they’re often used at full continuum of care facilities. Check out a few new approaches to BED treatment that are helping people make strides in their recovery.

Animal Assisted Therapy

The presence of our furry, domesticated friends brings calmness, trust, and comfort to people all around the world. Their presence can also be a boon to people engaged in mental health treatment, including treatment for eating disorders like BED. Because of this, some eating disorder treatment centers are beginning to incorporate treatment methods employing cats, dogs, and especially horses.

Working with horses allows these magnificent animals to become close to clients. Their sense of calmness and strength may transfer to the client, and the sense of responsibility gained from taking care of the animal can give them a better sense of their capability. Many people who engage in animal-assisted therapy for the first time have come to swear by it.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy and chiropractic massage is a form of relaxation therapy used at many modern binge eating disorder recovery centers that can release serotonin and dopamine in the brain–these brain chemicals prompt positive feelings like contentment and relieve the mood. In recent years, many studies have been conducted on how massage affects a person’s psychological outlook; one result, in particular, shows great promise for eating disorder recovery.

The NCBI published the results of a study that was performed on 19 women with anorexia nervosa. The group of 19 was split in two; one group received standard therapy and the other received both the standard and additional massage therapy sessions. The ones who had had both talk therapy and massage therapy reported a lower rate of body dissatisfaction than the control group. This indicates that as part of an integrated treatment program, massage therapy can help lead to even more positive outcomes than therapy alone.


One of the most tried-and-true alternative health and wellness treatment components used for eating disorder treatment is yoga. Yoga’s well-established in psychological, medical, and addiction-treatment circles as a physical and mental tool.

In a study titled “Body Awareness, Eating Attitudes, and Spiritual Beliefs of Women Practicing Yoga,” the authors came to the conclusion that:

“Qualitative data reported improvements in body satisfaction and disordered eating due in part to yoga and its associated spirituality.”

Yoga, in addition to being an ideal form of self-aware meditation, is also perfect for mindful movement. Many people with eating disorders also engage in excessive exercise – sometimes beyond the point of suffering an injury. Yoga provides a way to stay active without the high-impact exercise that becomes problematic for too many people with eating disorders.

New Approaches for Better Outcomes

A quality binge eating disorder recovery center in the modern age will employ multiple forms of therapy and therapeutic activities. This can include yoga and mindful meditation, traditional talk therapy, dedicated therapeutic techniques such as CBT and DBT, and many more. Binge eating treatment shouldn’t necessarily be old-fashioned – a new way has emerged, which incorporates both traditional and alternative approaches.

How to Recognize an Eating Disorder When You See One

Eating disorders are serious mental health disorders that can affect people of every age, race, ethnicity, and gender. Someone who has an eating disorder may exhibit a range of signs and symptoms that range from obvious to subtle. People close to someone with an eating disorder may not be prepared to recognize the more subtle signs; this can prevent them from reaching out to help the person who is struggling with the eating disorder

For this reason, we’ve listed some basic information about eating disorders, the signs you may see when these disorders are present, and what steps you can take to get help for yourself or a loved one.
Signs of Binge Eating Disorder

A binge eating disorder is actually the most common form of eating disorder in the United States, although it doesn't get as much recognition as others. People with binge eating disorders engage in binge eating episodes, where they compulsively eat large amounts of food in a short time. They may engage in dieting behaviors, but they do not engage in purging behaviors, such as vomiting.

If you suspect that your loved one may have binge eating disorder, keep an eye out for:

  • Episodes of eating large quantities of food in secret.
  • Frequent dieting.
  • Extreme concern with weight and/or body shape.
  • Unexplained weight gain.
  • Keeping stashes of junk food, or hiding food.
  • Discomfort about eating in a public setting.

People with binge eating disorder may feel out of control during episodes of binge eating, and they might begin to organize their schedule to accommodate these binge eating episodes. Binge eating disorder can lead to many of the negative symptoms of obesity such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Signs of Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia is a well-known restrictive kind of eating disorder where people severely restrict their caloric intake, leading to extreme weight loss. They are typically preoccupied with their body weight and may experience a distorted body image. Some of the most common signs of this disorder and behavioral symptoms include:

  • Obsession with body weight, appearance, and avoiding weight gain
  • Prolonged or extreme weight loss.
  • Frequent dieting and counting calories.
  • Chewing and spitting.
  • Wearing baggy clothes to hide body shape.
  • Always feeling cold
  • Lethargy.
  • Lack of normal menstrual cycles in women.
  • Intense fear of weight gain.
  • Extreme or compulsive exercise
  • Becoming isolated or withdrawing from social engagements.

People with anorexia nervosa face a long list of negative symptoms. It is the most dangerous form of mental health disorder, with the highest death rate and suicide rate of them all. People with anorexia nervosa might also experience gastrointestinal problems, anemia, dizziness, thinning hair, muscle weakness, and a variety of other physical problems.

Signs of Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia nervosa is similar to anorexia nervosa in that it often includes body image distortions and a fear of gaining weight. However, rather than restricting food intake, people with bulimia try to prevent weight gain by purging the food they eat, often during binge eating episodes similar to those in binge eating disorders. The most common way to purge is self-induced vomiting, but other methods like laxative abuse or excessive exercise are also common. Sometimes, the person will use several purging methods. Some of the signs of bulimia nervosa include:

  • Obsession with weight and body shape.
  • Evidence of binge eating episodes, such as large amounts of food disappearing or watching the individual eating large amounts of food at one time.
  • Discomfort at meal times.
  • Unusual rituals involving food.
  • Keeping breath mints on themselves at all times, and other ways to hide the smell of vomit.
  • Calluses on the fingers and knuckles.
  • Evidence of purging, such as disappearing after meals, spending too much time in the bathroom, and laxative packages.
  • Rapid or sudden tooth decay.

Bulimia nervosa can have many negative health effects, including thinning hair, dry skin, muscle weakness, and a range of other issues.

Recognizing Eating Disorders in a Friend or Family Member

If you believe your loved one may have an eating disorder, make sure you research their symptoms and maybe even talk to a professional before raising the issue with them. Many eating disorders cause the person great stress at mealtimes, especially when others are present, so keep your eye out during shared meals. In fact, many people discover eating disorders during the holidays, when family gatherings are common. Make sure you don’t jump the gun – a conversation about a person’s potential eating disorder is not an easy one.

Getting Treatment for Eating Disorders

Treatment for eating disorders is available in a variety of forms, including residential treatment, outpatient day treatment, and partial hospitalization programs. Residential treatment programs are conducted in inpatient facilities that provide all the resources people with eating disorders need to get better, with 24/7 medical, psychiatric, and therapeutic care.

Reach out to an expert such as an eating disorder counselor or the admissions staff at an eating disorder treatment center if you want to help yourself or your loved one attain a full recovery. They can help you diagnose the disorder, arrange treatment, and enter an eating disorder treatment facility, as well as arranging transportation and financial considerations.

What should I do after a slip and fall in a restaurant?

If you slip and fall in a restaurant, forget about feeling foolish or embarrassed by what the other diners might think when they see you sprawled on the floor. You should concentrate on understanding just what happened to you and determining what injuries you have suffered.

You might have slipped and fallen because the floor was wet. This is quite a common occurrence in restaurants and bars, where people spill their drinks and the staff might take too long to get the spill cleaned. Maybe there were too many people crowding a small hallway and you might not have been able to see a small step up or down or a change in flooring material.

First Things First: Get Medical Attention

Some people might suffer a sprained ankle due to a slip and fall accident in a restaurant, but others have fared much worse, suffering life-threatening injuries. If you are having a hard time determining how badly injured you are, stay put. Call 911 or have someone call for you. Don´t attempt to stand up until medical help has arrived.

If your injuries are minor and you can walk out of the restaurant on your own, get checked out by a medical professional as soon as you leave the premises. Keep the medical records and bills for your injuries. Don’t put off getting checked out or the insurance company might interpret it as though your injuries were not serious enough to warrant immediate attention.

Talk to the Manger

Whoever is responsible for the restaurant should be appraised of your accident. If your injuries allow it, make sure that the owner or manager, or responsible party knows what happened. Don’t ask someone else to report this for you. Also, don’t make statements such as “I think I’m fine” or “It’s probably nothing”. Stick to the facts. Have them put your statement in writing and give you a copy.

Document the Accident

Use your cellphone to take pictures of the accident. If possible, have someone take pictures of you where you fell. You want what you were wearing to come out clearly. You want to avoid the restaurant manager saying that you fell because your clothes snagged on something or you were wearing shoes that made walking difficult for you.

Also, take pictures of security cameras to show that the accident was captured on the restaurant’s video feed.

Get Testimonies from Witnesses

If other patrons around you saw what happened, gather their testimonies. Also, ask for their contact information. Ask around to find out who was standing close enough to witness your fall. Tell them you might need to get in touch with them later. There is no need to explain anything else to them at this point. Just let them know you might be in touch soon.

Talk to a Personal Injury Lawyer

You will need experienced legal help to be able to prove that there was negligence on the part of the restaurant. This means that they knew about the issue and took no action to correct it or to let you and other patrons know they needed to be aware of an issue when they were walking by.

Your Jacksonville slip and fall lawyers have had to deal with plenty of slip and fall accidents in restaurants and other premises. That is why they recommend that you seek legal help as soon as possible after the accident.

Start working with your personal injury attorney by telling them the full account of what happened, gather all the medical records and bills related to your injuries, if you have written testimonies and an accident report from the restaurant, give them that as well.

Your lawyer will explain your legal options and design a strategy to build a strong case and obtain the damages you are entitled to.

Bodily Injury Liability 101


No matter how careful you are in every area of your life, there is no way to avoid every single fall, bump, or accident. The problem is that in many cases we manage not only to hurt ourselves but to hurt someone else. For this reason, and being aware that accidents are a part of life, both general liability insurance, and automobile insurance include bodily liability coverage in their policies. Its purpose is to help you pay for the costs that come with having caused injuries to someone else.

Bodily Injury Defined

A narrow definition of bodily injury coverage includes three main areas which are personal injury to the body, disease, and sickness. A broader definition goes much further and includes such items as:

  • Shock
  • Disability
  • Mental injury
  • Mental anguish
  • Death

What is the biggest problem associated with a personal injury?

Personal injuries are generally associated with secondary problems that may last much longer than the original injury itself. These secondary issues can have a negative impact on the life of whoever suffers from them, making daily living difficult. These may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Diminished ability to carry out a previously held job
  • Inability to work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish

How can your insurance policy help you face the possibility of having to deal with those issues?
Insurance policies reflect the fact that the issues listed above are a reality. Thus, they include different types of coverage that aim at protecting you (and your bank account) every day. These types of third-person liability coverage are:

Bodily Injury

This coverage offers financial protection to others when you are found to be at fault for an accident or an injury to a third party. It is understood that you may end up causing harm to somebody else either directly (such as when you harm them with your car), and indirectly (such as when you have left objects lying around and someone trips over them and gets injured).

Property Damage

This section of the coverage is used to offer financial protection in cases where things get damaged. If you destroy or damage someone else’s property, such as their car during an accident, your insurance would help cover the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged property.

How can you protect yourself from bodily injury claims?

Before you face an accident where you are at fault or damage someone else’s property, you should protect yourself with a general liability insurance policy. If you are the owner of a small business, this coverage is that much more crucial, since one single claim could end up ruining your business and forcing you to close your doors forever.

According to lawyer Kenneth King, it is more important to focus on the things you have to do to stay afloat in these economic circumstances than having to constantly worry about unexpected accidents and their effects on your business. Protect yourself and your livelihood: get a bodily injury policy now. It will offer you protection for third-party medical bills, legal fees, lost wages, mental anguish, pain and suffering, and even funeral costs.

In California, bodily injury liability insurance must cover $15,000 for bodily injury or death and $30,000 for wrongful death. That is what’s known as the “15/30” insurance.

Inside the OR: The Ten Most Essential Items

Every OR is meticulously designed to ensure that anything a surgeon could need is readily available throughout every procedure. Here are just ten of those essential items. 

1. Anesthesia

Anesthesia literally translates to ‘loss of sensation’, and it enables surgeons to perform complex, lengthy, and otherwise incredibly traumatic and painful procedures on patients who are not conscious of what is going on. This transformed surgical practice, and enabled much more complicated procedures to be developed without worry for the patient’s ability to survive. 

2. Lights

Any complex and intricate task requires excellent lighting, and this is never truer than it is within the OR. Plenty of bright, adjustable lighting must be used in order to ensure that the incision sites are not afflicted by shadows, and that the surgeon’s own hands do not get in their way. 

3. Retractor

These days, innovation continues to change the face of surgery, with many improvements being made with the Lone Star retractor. For instance, June Medical has worked to design a cam lock system, which offers the surgeon much more control and ensures that fewer personnel need to be present in the operating room – thus lowering the risk of infection. 

4. Smoke Removal System

Surgical smoke produced via cauterization can be highly damaging to surgeon’s lungs, and an effective removal system is essential to ensuring that medical professionals do not suffer long term health consequences as a result of inhalation. 

5. ECG Machine

A lot can go wrong during an operating, and close monitoring of the patient at all times is essential to ensuring that they are able to wake up from the operation without any complications or setbacks. An ECG, or electrocardiogram machine, enables everyone in attendance to monitor the patient’s heartbeat for sudden spikes or lulls, and ensure that they are coping well under anesthesia. 

6. Scalpel

The scalpel is one of the most recognisable symbols of the OR. With this, the surgeon can make precise, neat, and definitive cuts into the patient’s tissue, and ensure access to the site requiring medical attention. 

7. Sterilisation Equipment

Keeping all reusable implements clean, and ensuring that no germs are transferred from one patient to another within the OR, is an incredibly difficult job. All operating rooms need to be equipped with excellent facilities for sterilizing reusable implements, and ensuring that nothing touches the patient unless it has been scrupulously cleaned first. 

8. PPE

Personal Protective Equipment is essential not only to keeping the surgeon and those working within the OR safe, but also the ensuring that the sterile field is maintained, and that the patient is not exposed to any harmful microbes throughout the procedure. From masks to caps and gowns, all surgeons need to be appropriately dressed before entering the sterile field. 

9. Surgical Table

This is where the patient will lie throughout the surgery. It is designed to be easily adjusted to suit the height of the surgeon, and the nature of the operation, and ensure that everyone involved is always able to gain easy access to the site upon which the procedure is taking place. 

10. Backup Power

Many factors are at play during a surgery – all of which could, in worst case scenarios, backfire during the course of even the most routine procedure. One of the most devastating possibilities, however, remains loss of power, which would plunge the room into darkness and prevent any of the machines monitoring and supporting the patient from working. 

A backup source of power is, for that reason, essential, and no surgery should proceed without it.

All about Gender Identity

Gender Identity is a timely and relevant topic that deserves proper discussion and attention. As we all have known, gender identity only has distinctions which are the male and female. However, it still has a wider spectrum of perceptions that must be discussed thoroughly considering the modern influences of this generation. Given that, here is a brief discussion of gender identity and linking ideas for us to gain more awareness about this relevant topic. 

Defining Gender Identity 

Gender identity refers to one’s personal sense of their own gender. It can correlate with what sex is assigned to one when born or differ from it. Also, gender expression reflects the gender identity of a person but not all the time. For example, in this modern time, people may express their appearances, attitudes, and behaviors assigned to a specific gender role; however, these do not essentially reflect their true gender identity

Moreover, each society has its own set of gender categories, which serves as the basis for self-identity. As mentioned previously, there are two main categories of gender which are the female and male. Females express femininity and males express masculinity. Now, gender identity has been known to form at the age of three. After this age, making changes to it can be difficult, and failed attempts to reassign it results in gender dysphoria. 

Age of Formation 

Different theories were made and used to determine the exact age of the formation of gender identity. It has been a tough journey for researchers since children still lack language at an early age. Communicating and investigating children in terms of their gender identity did not come easily However, researchers claimed that gender identity mostly forms at the age of three. This is the age where children are starting to be aware of themselves, their identity, likes, and life. This is the age where their level of consciousness, not only about themselves but also in the surrounding increases. Moving forward, let us now proceed to the factors affecting the formation of gender identity. In this way, we can widen our perspective about this topic and gain more knowledge on how to deal with it.

Factors Affecting the Formation of Gender Identity 

Lots of people are not yet completely aware of gender identity, especially the factors affecting its formation. This leads to confusion and hard times in coping and understanding it. Given that, below are the brief discussions about these factors. 

Nature vs. Nurture 

The very first factor that affects gender identity formation is nature vs. nurture. Nurture refers to the environmental or social factors, and nature pertains to the biological factors. Beginning with nurture, human beings are born to be social-making interactions not only with fellow human beings but also with nature, society, and other elements. With daily exposure to a specific kind of nature, gender identity can be formed. For example, when a child is exposed to a setting that consists of feminine attributes, the child will be more likely to become feminine. Although biologically, the child is male, exposure to femininity can alter gender identity. One big example of this is when a boy is born with siblings that are all female. The tendency of the child to think and feel feminine will increase as his exposure to his female siblings is dominant.

On the other hand, the nature or biological factors affecting gender identity is also important. The females have feminine attributes, while the males have masculine attributes. Once a child has been made aware of what biological features he or she has, these attributes can be nurtured over time.

For a wider discussion, below are specific factors: 

Biological Factors

This is considered as the most important factor for gender identity, for it comes naturally. Any feminine features will lead to femininity, and masculine features will lead to masculinity. Examples of unchangeable and inner features are the reproductive system containing the ovaries and vagina for the female and sperm for the male. As our world continues to be more modernized, altering physical features representing gender identity has been made possible through surgeries and operations. This is where the idea of transgender and trans-sexuality follows. 

Transgender and Trans-Sexuality 

Due to confusion, other people choose to alter their gender identity by undergoing major surgeries removing or changing the features that show their old identity. Countries such as Thailand are only one of the well-known countries that host surgeries for transgender purposes. Due to advancement in technology, that surgeries like these are becoming successful and even undergoing further development and improvement. In this way, people who wish to change their gender identity can have a higher assurance that they will never hide who they truly are. They will have the confidence to show what and who they really are as long as it does not create any negative effect on other people. 

Environmental and Social 

The next set of factors is environmental and social. Here, we are going to discuss the specific factors that affect the formation of gender identity of one’s self. 

Parental Establishment 

Since a child is born, the parents are there to look and care for him or her. Whatever the parents do and show to their child will be copied and admired by the child. This is what we call the parental establishment or simply the influence the child’s development not only in gender but also in other area. 

Parents must show the proper respect connected to a gender. If the child is a female, then feminine influences must be established. On the other hand, if the child is a male, then masculine influences must be established.

Society and Groups 

Another factor is society and groups. Any gender influence learned by a child from society and groups will then contribute to shaping the individual and can avoid leading him or her into confusion in the future.

Why do New Year’s diets fail?

Every January there is a massive influx of diet culture and New Year’s resolution diet based media. It could be gym based, how sleep affects your weight, Veganuary, or just a good old “cut out carbs” based diet.

On one hand, January can be the perfect time to start introducing healthy new habits; everyone loves the feeling of a fresh new year, a brand-new page. Just like the first page of a notebook. It can give you the boost you need in order to kick start the year in the right way, chances are you’ve eaten and drunk your fill over Christmas, so your body might be craving veggies.

Veganuary is also becoming bigger
every year, originating in 2014, it’s the trend where you try becoming Vegan for the month of January. Due to its impact, both supermarkets and restaurants have been known to run promotional adverts to coincide with the movement.  

According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute “weight loss” was the second most popular New Year’s resolution in 2017, with only 9.2% then feeling successful in achieving this.  One of the main factors stopping people from succeeding is purely that they get too hyped up about it at the beginning and set themselves unrealistic expectations.

Old habits do tend to die hard. If you’ve been eating a lot of chocolate every day for an extended period of time, then stopping immediately, especially just after Christmas because it can be a bit of a shock for your body. It can also trigger you if you’re an emotional or stress eater. You suddenly feel like you can’t do something which has been bringing you happiness, therefore you’re more likely to then binge. Try just reducing the amount you eat on a daily basis so you can still feel like you’re in control.

Another problem with a new diet resolution is the word itself. “Resolution” is such a demanding word. It creates such an inflexible idea of what you need to do in order to achieve success. Automatically making you feel that if you slip up once then you have failed and may as well give up.

A different method of approach can be to change one thing in your diet, say rather than doing Veganuary and making it your whole month, alter it to Meat Free Monday. This way, you can make more sustainable changes within your life. Also, probably carry it on for longer, rather than just shocking your body one month, you’re making more sustainable changes that with benefit your health in a much more long term fashion.

Adopting a new habit can be an effective way to aid your weight loss, if that’s your aim.  Rather than cutting something out and feeling like you’re missing out on something, adding something into your daily life can have the same affect and make you feel better. For example, making sure you get your 10,000 steps in every day can increase your calorie output, especially if you work a desk job.

The Basics to Taking Good Care of Your Teeth

Our mouths are living organisms that need looking after, from our gums to our teeth and our tongues. Despite dental care being an essential part of our daily hygiene routine, most people fail to take proper care of their teeth. This is mainly because they don’t have a solid understanding of the subject. We hope to change that with our article today. Read on to find out all the basics to taking good care of your teeth.

Brushing Your Teeth

First things first, let’s talk about brushing our teeth. We should brush our teeth at least twice a day, every day – without exception. It’s important to use a fluoride toothpaste when doing so, and not to spit the toothpaste out after finishing. This is because the fluoride provides a protective covering for our teeth. Rinsing after spitting means that all this gets washed away. Furthermore, when brushing our teeth, we should use small circular motions, plus back-and-forth strokes. Don’t forget about the gums, either! Lightly bring your toothbrush around these areas because food can sometimes accumulate here. We also suggest gently brushing your tongue (or using a tongue scraper) to help your mouth stay clean and ensure your tongue is healthy. Finally, make sure to change your toothbrush’s head every 3 to 4 months because, otherwise, it will become ineffective and unhygienic.

Flossing Your Teeth

Most people will proudly announce that they don’t floss their teeth, and they haven’t had any problems. This is because you can’t see the damage that is done until it’s too late. Flossing removes the plaque from in between your teeth which a toothbrush can’t reach. If this plaque is allowed to fester, it will eventually cause tooth decay and gum disease. These are painful, serious dental issues that can lead to further complications down the line. As such, everyone needs to floss at least once every day. You can either use tooth floss or interdental brushes for this. Gently slip your flossing tool of choice between your teeth, then use strokes which go side-to-side, up-and-down. This should dislodge any plaque which is lodged between the teeth.

Visit Your Dentist

As well as staying on top of your dental hygiene, it’s also important to regularly visit your dentist. They will be able to identify any problems you might have missed when cleaning and then provide treatment. No matter how brilliant you think your dental hygiene is, this step cannot be missed. Head online and search for a specialist in your area, like this dentist in Plymouth for example. This is the best way to ensure your teeth are top-notch. Also, your dentist can provide you with expert advice on your specific dental needs. For instance, they will be able to tell you how your diet is affecting your teeth. If you don’t realize you are drinking or consuming too much sugar, they will highlight this, so you know to cut down.

These are the basics of taking good care of your teeth. Remember to always stay on top of your dental hygiene routine!

Things One Should Do For Good Dental Health

When it comes to our body and mind, we are very active in maintaining our health. However, in the same scenario, most people neglect to maintain their good dental health as well. Most people think that brushing two times a day would be more than enough in their daily routine to maintain their dental health and will not cause any problem to their teeth. However, this is not true and people who are not attentive to their oral health are most likely to go through many health issues due to it. Maintaining good dental health is very necessary for various reasons. It not only helps us retain the natural look of our teeth but also helps in making sure that there is no accumulation of bacteria in our teeth and does not lead to other health issues as well. Following a few habits and routines can easily help you in maintaining your great smile and can keep you away from many health problems as well. Let's have a look at a few of them.

Brushing and cleaning

Consuming these things leads to the accumulation of bacteria in between the teeth, which further increases the chances of fungal or bacterial infection in one's mouth. Therefore, these can damage your teeth and also leads to a lot of pain and other problems as well.

Other diseases

If you are suffering from any other types of disease or problems like Diabetes etc, even that could lead to serious dental problems. For example, people with diabetes have high sugar content in their blood, which could lead to a lot of side effects in the body and lead to gum disease. Make sure that if you are suffering from any such issues, then it would be a lot better to keep them in check and maintain them to a level so that it does not affect your health in any way.

Tips For Buying The Best First Aid Kit

Nobody wants to get hurt, but one can have no control over the injuries. A person can get hurt while doing typical daily chores. In such times, usually, people go looking for a first aid kit to find bandages. Hence, a first aid kit must be within your reach.

Furthermore, one can always call emergency services. But until the time they arrive at the spot, it can be very late. In those moments, a first aid kit comes to the rescue. You can prepare a first aid kit from a plastic bag, considering that it contains all of the essentials. However, it must be nimble. It should be easy to find and to carry wherever you need. 

Is just a kit enough? 

The first aid kit must have the medical supplies you need for your household because you might not have the time to get these in case of emergency. However, a few items are mandatory in every first aid kit, such as a thermometer. One can buy all of the things needed for a first aid kit from the local drug store.

You can also buy a pre-assembled first aid kit from your pharmacy or drug store. When searching for a first aid kit, it’s important to buy from a brand you trust. You can purchase first aid kits from Aero Healthcare, an industry-leading supplier and manufacturer of medical equipment and first aid supplies.

Necessary items for every first aid kit 

Everyone needs to have necessary medical supplies with themselves; therefore, here are some essentials that are a must-have in a first aid kit:

First aid manual:

A first-aid manual is a necessity in a first aid kit because you may or may not know how to use all the items of the kit. Furthermore, a manual can assist you well.

Triangular bandages:

Bandages are necessary for minor cuts and injuries. Triangular bandages can wrap the wounds.

Adhesive bandages for assorted sizes: 

These types of bandages are helpful to cover minor cuts and injuries on the body.

Sterile scissors:

Any shard items of the first aid kit should be sterile because, if not, these items can cause an infection. A clean scissor comes in handy for cutting tape and clothes.

Adhesive tape:

When there is a minor injury, adhesive tape works well to hold the gauze.

● Latex-free gloves:

While dressing a wound, it can be prone to infection. There is hardly any time to wash or sanitize the hands, so there are higher chances of getting infected. Hence, in that situation, latex-free gloves can be a life saver.

●  Thermometer: 

A thermometer is an essential item in a first aid kit. When a patient is ill, one can monitor the temperature with the help of a thermometer.

Instant cold compress:

These can help to deal with sprains, sore joints, and aches.


Aspirin is needed in case of chest pain. However, it is advisable that one must always read the warnings, especially when a child is injured.

Mentioned above are some of the essentials for a first aid kit. However, the list can vary depending on the requirements. 


Another thing to keep in mind while buying a first aid kit is that the box or whatever you are using to contain all the items must be waterproof. In injuries, time is always considered crucial; a slight delay can cost someone's life. It would help if you always had medical supplies ready. Hence, with a first aid kit, one can stop the bleeding and start the treatment on the spot

Common Causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Many of us suffer from a sore stomach from time to time after eating, but if the condition persists, it could be a sign you’re suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome – often referred to simply as IBS.

IBS often becomes more common or more noticeable as we get older, but it can also be a sign of greater, more dangerous underlying problems, so you should always consult your GP if you find you’re regularly suffering cramps, constipation, diarrhea, or pains in your stomach or digestive system.

Signs you may be suffering from IBS

Pain after eating can cause discomfort and could be a sign you could be suffering from – or developing – IBS. However, rather than being short-term, symptoms tend to persist with most people. You may be developing problems if you regularly suffer from the following:

  • Regular problems with constipation
  • Diarrhea or other abnormalities in stools
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Cramps or other pains
  • Suffering from feelings of being bloated or producing excessive gas

Even making small changes can make big a difference to IBS

While recurring pain is worth checking out with a qualified clinician, often just making small changes to your diet is enough to clear problems in the short term. Using an online service like the can help you isolate common problems in your diet so you can eliminate the causes of your problems. Here are some of the common causes of IBS that you should try to avoid:

Dairy products: Milk and other dairy products frequently trigger problems in sufferers of IBS. Note, in some cases, problems with milk can be a sign of lactose intolerance, so you should check with a doctor.

Fried foods: The high-fat content of fried foods can cause problems with IBS. Also, frying food changes its chemical make-up, which often makes it harder to digest, in turn triggering digestive issues.

Foods rich in insoluble fiber: Foods with insoluble fiber such as whole grain products and vegetables should be avoided.

Foods with a high gluten content: You should try to avoid foods high in gluten like wheat, barley, or rye.  

Peas, lentils, and beans: Beans and other legumes can cause digestive problems due to having compounds called oligosaccharides, which are hard to digest as they are resistant to our intestinal enzymes.

Drinks with a high caffeine content: Caffeine is present in many sodas and energy drinks and can cause problems as it has a stimulating effect on the intestinal tract, which may trigger diarrhea problems. Caffeine is also clearly present in high doses in coffee and tea.

Processed foods: Processed foods tend to have a high prevalence of sugar, fat, and also added salt – all of which can bring about digestive problems. Deep-fried foods should usually be avoided, including some processed meats, microwave and pre-made meals, and chips.

Artificial sweeteners:
Sugar-free sweeteners are commonly found in mouthwash products, chewing and bubble gum, the majority of diet drinks, and sugar-free sweets. The ingredients used in sugar substitutes have all been known to cause issues in IBS sufferers.

Candy bars, sweets, and other chocolates:
Chocolate is normally high in both fat and sugar and also commonly contains lactose and caffeine, so it should be avoided.

Alcohol: Beer normally has a high gluten content while wine and other mixed drinks can also be high in sugar – again, all products to steer clear of.

Onion or garlic: Both onions and garlic are difficult for the digestive system to break down, and both can be a cause of gas.

Cauliflower or broccoli: Cauliflower and broccoli are both tricky for the body to digest and can also be a cause of gas, so they should be avoided.

Personal Injury Case Timeline

Although the great majority of personal injury cases end up settling instead of going to court, it is important to know the steps that a personal injury case needs to follow to reach a successful ending should the settlement not come through. Even cases that appear to be heading to court may end up settling at any point.

Here is a basic personal injury case timeline:

Make Medical Treatment a Priority

After your accident, you probably have to deal with the police and get an accident report. However, as soon as that is done you should head towards a medical facility to get your injuries checked out. This may mean either a stop at an emergency room or an appointment with your own physician. Not seeing to your injuries right away will send a clear message to the other party, the insurance adjuster, and the jury that you did not consider your injuries to be serious enough to require attention.

Talk to a Lawyer

If your injuries are not major, you may be able to tackle this case yourself. Otherwise, having the support and advice of a personal injury lawyer is vital. Your lawyer will have an in-depth conversation with you to understand what happened. Give them as detailed information as possible. They will also review your medical records and bills.

Filing a Claim or Settling

It’s a well-known fact that many personal injury claims are settled. If your lawyer thinks this is the way to go, they will make a demand to the other attorney. This can only happen once you have reached the point of maximum improvement in your injuries to be able to calculate the amount needed to cover your damages.

If no settlement is forthcoming or the amount offered is not what you were expecting, the lawsuit will be filed. This needs to happen before the statute of limitations runs out.

The Discovery Phase

At this stage, both parties will investigate the legal claims. They will send interrogatories and document requests. They will also take depositions of witnesses and any other relevant parties. This process may take between six months and a year, depending on how complex the case is.

Mediation and Negotiation

At this point, lawyers will bring up the possibility of reaching a settlement. This might be accomplished just by having them negotiate amongst themselves. In other cases, a mediator will be called upon to try to resolve the case.

The Trial

A personal injury trial may be over in as little as one day or it may take longer. In many cases, the trial goes on in the morning, and in the afternoons the lawyers have time to get other things done. The judge’s schedule will impact exactly when the trial takes place and it may also end up being pushed back for that same reason.

Before the trial gets underway, a jury will have to be selected. Then, both parties will have the opportunity to make opening statements. Then, first, the plaintiff will present evidence, followed by the defendant presenting its own evidence. After closing arguments and deliberation, a verdict will be reached.

If you still have questions regarding the timeline of your case or would like to talk to a personal injury lawyer, click here to get the answers you seek.

6 Foods To Improve Kids Gut Bacteria

Gut bacteria is essential for health and wellness from childhood to adulthood. These microbes aid digestion, breaking food into metabolites that can be taken by the body. Gut bacteria also influence immune and mental health, fighting disease-causing microbes while communicating to the brain. Without a surplus of healthy bacteria, you may suffer an increased risk of developing respiratory infections, irritable bowel syndrome, asthma, and mental diseases. Fortunately, there are various foods rich in probiotics and gut bacteria. You can also purchase probiotics and live organisms to increase the supply of these microbes, which are usually passed to babies during birth and breastfeeding. Here's a quick overview of five foods you can take to increase the natural population of your kid's gut bacteria.

1. Probiotics

The number one choice for gut bacteria is probiotics. Food like yogurt, kombucha, and kefir all contain healthy gut bacteria that can supplement the existing supply. Parents can also purchase special probiotics, which are formulas that contain live organisms and key microbes needed to promote digestive and immune health. Probiotics are merely live bacteria and organisms that are good for your digestive system and overall health. They are safe to consume and nourish the gut flora, which results in various health benefits.

2. Fermented foods

Fermented foods are the natural source of probiotics. Popular examples include yogurt and kefir. The fermentation process occurs when you preserve food using yeast and bacteria, which use the sugar in the food and break it down to organic acids, gases, and alcohol. According to studies, giving your child fermented foods will increase the natural population of gut bacteria as they contain live organisms. They also contain food for the microbes, which is essential in their growth.

3. High-fiber foods

Oatmeal, bananas, oranges, apples, quinoa, and brown rice are great sources of fiber, a key component of the microbe biome. Gut bacteria love fiber and the more they can access, the healthier they will get. As such, it is essential to add foods with lots of fiber to your child's diet. This will nourish the healthy gut bacteria and help to aid digestion, encouraging regular bowel movements, and cleansing the colon. Foods rich in fiber include whole-wheat bread, cooked dried beans, lentils, split peas, grains, fruits, and vegetables.

4. Leafy greens and vegetables

Vegetables are some of the healthiest food classes available to humans and other animals, explaining the abundance of vegetation. In particular, Leafy greens are rich in fiber and special carbohydrates, which are nutrients for gut bacteria. Although they can be tough to sell to children, you can find recipes for delicious leafy green meals. Some of the best leafy greens for kids' gut health include kales, spinach, collard greens, Swiss chard, and arugula, among others. Sweet potatoes, asparagus, bell pepper, beets, cabbage, mushroom, and cucumber are also great for gut flora.

5. Whole grains

Whole grains, nuts, and seeds are rich in nutrients and also contain fiber for the microbes. The human body cannot break down fiber, so the gut bacteria do most of the work and thrive when there's a surplus of whole grains coming into the digestive tract. Brown rice and black rice, oatmeal, whole cornmeal, and whole-grain tortilla are all great gut bacteria foods. You can also try less common grains like amaranth, bulgur, and barley.

6. Garlic and polyphenols

Garlic and polyphenols come from two different food classes but play similar roles pertaining to gut bacteria. Both garlic and foods rich in polyphenols, such as tea and coffee, are vital in fighting off bad gut bacteria, providing room for the healthy microbes to multiply. Red wine is also a polyphenol, but this is only for adults. Garlic has antimicrobial properties that target harmful bacteria but should be used in moderation. The same goes for foods rich in polyphenols.

Several other foods can improve your kid's gut bacteria, including Brussels sprouts, Miso, Kimchi, Saukraut, olive oil, almonds, and sourdough. However, the fastest way to introduce live organisms and gut bacteria to your kid is through probiotics like the one offered by sproutedbiome, you can buy from here. These are live gut bacteria and microbes known to promote digestive, immune, and mental health.


Like vegetables, some foods may not have the best of taste, so you can add them to the recipes your child love to ensure they take these essential nutrients. It is also important to avoid foods like meat, processed sugars, fried foods, caffeine, and foods rich in antibiotics as they can kill gut bacteria.

Preparing to Pursue a Medical Malpractice Claim

When you enlist the services of a healthcare professional, be it for a surgery, psychiatric care, physical therapy, or dental care, you do so under the assumption they will keep you free from harm. As such, when these individuals or institutions don’t exercise due diligence and behave recklessly, causing injuries or damages, you have the right to file a suit against them.

If you find yourself in this situation, you’re likely eager to move forward as fast as possible to recover the compensation you deserve. However, if you want to find success with your claim, it’s important to slow down, think ahead, and take the necessary steps to prepare. Follow the tips below to ensure you’ve got all the tools and resources needed to succeed as you move forward. 

3 Key Steps to Take if You’re Pursuing a Medical Malpractice Claim

1. Hire an Attorney

The first, and possibly most crucial step, is to find a reputable medical malpractice law firm that will take on your case. Working with a lawyer will alleviate a major burden moving forward. These professionals are equipped with the knowledge, experience, and skills needed to most accurately and effectively represent your interests. 

Medical professionals are usually backed by major corporate lawyers, and attempting to go up against these professionals by yourself isn’t just intimidating—it can also be disastrous for your claim. Their main goal will be to poke holes in your arguments and try to turn things around on you. If you don’t know how to properly present your evidence, they could ultimately find a way to avoid liability on behalf of their client.

Furthermore, a medical malpractice attorney’s negotiation skills will likely come in handy when the time comes to figure out your settlement – they’ll have a better understanding as to what your claim is really worth, so you don’t miss out on any much-needed compensation. 

2. Put Together an Arsenal of Evidence

Evidence plays a key role in building a medical malpractice claim. Not only does it help to show the other party’s true liability, making it near impossible for them to avoid paying your damages, but it also helps to prove the true value of your claim. 

To start, gather any images or videos you took immediately after the accident. If possible, opt for footage with a date or time stamp to help validate your findings. You should also provide your attorney with a list of contacts who served as eyewitnesses. This might include family members, attending nurses, additional physicians, or friends. 

Finally, provide them with any documents or bills associated with the accident and any expenses incurred as a result. For example, this may include a medical report outlining the procedure or treatment administered, a report of your injuries from the hospital, and a repository of bills from treating said injuries. 

3. Find Out Your State’s Statute of Limitations

A statute of limitations refers to how long you have to legally file a lawsuit. Typically, this is a period of three to five years from the date of the accident. In the state of Florida, you have two years from the date of the discovery to begin the proceedings and file against the liable party. Although this may sound like a long time, acting earlier is better. Medical malpractice cases can take months to reach a settlement, and the earlier you are within that statute, the less likely you are to run into complications. 

After your accident, beginning a lawsuit can seem overwhelming. But with proper care and research, you can seamlessly move forward to recover the compensation you deserve.

The 5 Top Benefits of Laser Therapy

Using laser treatment for cosmetic purposes started in 1963 when American surgeon Leon Goldman pioneered laser applications for dermatological conditions. The developments and clinical applications of lasers for cosmetic purposes soon followed.

Getting laser treatment sounds daunting, mainly due to the lack of information about it. But laser treatment, if you have skin conditions you want to repair, may be the right choice. The treatment is quick and easy and will give your skin a new lease of life, so to speak.

Lasers emit high-intensity light, and they are capable of accurately focusing on small spots. The laser beam gently ablates or vaporises the skin tissues to treat cut skin tissue, seal blood vessels, remove blemishes and scars, and smooth out wrinkles. The treatment directs short and intense pulsating light beams on the skin, removing the blemished skin layer by layer.

What do lasers treat?

Dermatologists say that laser treatment is effective and safe for treating the following conditions:

  • Unwanted hair
  • Sunspots
  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Spider veins
  • Brown and red spots

Benefits of getting laser treatments

Lasers are effective because they can accurately send the hyper-focused light energy to a specific area, even if it is small. With its capability to micro-direct the treatment, it does not damage the surrounding tissues. Here are some of its benefits:

  • 1. Medical aesthetics technology provides controlled strength and accuracy. Its ability to accurately target deep layers of tissue below the skin's surface is considered the most effective type of treatment for certain conditions.
  • 2. It can bring back the glow of your skin. Getting spa treatments leaves your skin clean and hydrated. In contrast, laser treatments rejuvenate your skin from the surface to several layers underneath. Laser treatments resurface, rejuvenate and tighten your skin, making it feel and look younger.  
  • 3. Laser treatment is non-invasive. Compared to cosmetic surgery, laser surgery does not require a long recovery time. You will not face the risk of blood loss, infection and nerve damage. Being non-invasive, there is downtime, and you can see the results immediately. You can have a photofacial (laser skin rejuvenation) during your lunch break if you wish.
  • 4. Laser treatment can remove unwanted tattoos. Aside from the list of services you can get, you can also use laser treatment to remove that tattoo you want to erase from your memory.
  • 5. Removes skin blemishes. Laser treatment can permanently remove acne scars and other blemishes on your skin.

The skin is the most visible and largest part of the body. Your skin protects you, and being visible, it is exposed to pollutants, dust, dirt, harsh products and other environmental hazards. If you have blemishes and other skin conditions that creams and other topical treatments cannot remove, you might find a better solution by getting laser treatment.
