Helpful Equipment When You're Caring For Somebody At Home

Helpful Equipment When You're Caring For Somebody At Home
Becoming a carer is challenging, to say the least. Not only is the work often physically demanding, but the person you're caring for can have additional, behavioral needs. That's why it's so important to prepare your home with equipment that you might need to make your job a little easier. Kitchen One of the things that many people that require care find difficult is operating the taps in the kitchen. It often involves a precise twisting motion that requires both fine dexterity and strength. And many patients are not capable of either. Fitting single lever taps in your kitchen is one possible option. Single lever taps are much easier to operate than simple taps, and can adjust both temperature and flow rate.

New HIV Guidelines Released by WHO

New HIV Guidelines Released by WHO
July 23, 2014 (MELBOURNE, Australia) -- Five groups of people are driving the global HIV epidemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) says in its new guidelines. Men who have sex with men, sex workers, injection-drug users, transgender people, and people in prisons are among the groups targeted for prevention and treatment efforts. HIV rates are "going down all over the world, with the exception of key affected populations," Fabio Mesquita, MD, said during a news conference at the 20th International AIDS Conference. Mesquita is the director of the HIV and viral hepatitis program at the Ministry of Health in Sao Paulo, Brazil. "If we don't address key affected populations, we won't reach our goal of controlling the epidemic by the year 2030," he said. Recent statistics indicate that men who have sex with men are up to 19 times more likely than people in the general population to be infected with...

HIV Insights

HIV Insights
1. HIV establishes secure hiding places from the immune system extremely early after infection — a huge obstacle to developing a cure for HIV infection, scientists say. Researchers reported in Nature on 20 July that monkeys treated starting three days after infection with simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) appeared to be free of virus after two years. But after treatment was stopped, the virus escaped from its hiding places, or “reservoirs”, and the infections resurged in the monkeys. 2. Still, finding a way to eliminate such reservoirs seems the only way to a cure, and scientists reported a degree of progress in this direction on 22 July. A team from Aarhus University in Denmark used a cancer drug called romidepsin to re-activate dormant HIV  in six infected patients. HIV then surged to detectable levels in five of the patients. The next step in this ‘kick and kill’ strategy is to find a way...

Foods that Prevent Wrinkles

Foods that Prevent Wrinkles
YOU NEED TO EAT A well-balanced diet to have healthy-looking skin. To fight wrinkles, though, certain foods are a must, says Alison Levitt, M.D., a holistic family physician in Asheville, N.C. Most anti-wrinkle foods are rich in antioxidants, which neutralize the effects of free radicals that attack your skin's collagen and elastic tissue, forcing them to lose their firmness. Levitt and other skin experts consider these five the best. Other anti-wrinkle habits: Drink four to six glasses of water daily; wear sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen when in the sun; don't smoke.

Yoga for Beginners

Yoga for Beginners
One of the favorite poses in yoga is Tree Pose. It combines everything there is to love about yoga: strength, flexibility and balance.Tree Pose helps with the muscles we use in walking, specifically in ‘mid stance’, the position when one leg is on the ground and the other is swinging to make the next step. During ‘mid stance,’ the primary muscles engaged are the butt (gluteal) muscles consisting of: [glute] medius and minimus as well as the half-hip half-leg muscle tensor fascia latae.These butt muscles work together to help stabilize the pelvis and prevent it from dropping to the opposite side. If these muscles are weak, specifically gluteus medius, then you will have trouble stabilizing the pelvis, resulting in anything from localized hip pain to lower back pain or even knee and ankle issues.By learning how to keep the balancing leg in the midline and not let the hip swing out...

Using Vitamins and Minerals Supplements

b2ap3_thumbnail_screen-shot-2013-01-11-at-16-37-45.pngFound this great article on supplements fact by Charles Poliquin, outlining various vitamins and minerals, what each do, why you should take them and giving you the lowdown on multivitamins. It’s definitely worth a read because it’s highly unlikely you’re getting everything you need from your diet alone and rather than buying anything that is on offer (ahem…), get what you really need! I’m particularly interested in magnesium to help me sleep better and I’ve started taking Vitamin D too, cos let’s face it, here in the UK we definitely don’t get enough of that!

Or maybe you dieted hard for a vacation/wedding etc and right after you immediately gained the weight back and it then took months to then lose it again?? I am going to try to break this down as simple as possible as it pertains to EVERYONE. Your metabolic rate (metabolism) is The single most important factor that determines fat loss. Not caloric deficit, not doing endless hours of cardio. Without metabolism you are dead in the water. You can burn calories all day but if your metabolism is damaged your body essentially goes into emergency protection mode and holds onto fat storages.
