Injuries: “Wham, bam — no thanks ma’am”

(The French — of course! — have a special name for this: faux pas de coït, which roughly translates as ‘a sexual stumble’. Oui, indeed.) Other causes can be masturbation, industrial accidents (though why would you have a hard-on at work?), turning in bed with an erect penis, or any other movement that can give a quick abnormal flex to it.

What Relieves Bloating?

What relieves bloating? – Exercise

If you are feeling discomfort already and want to know what relieves bloating, what can you do? There are various things you can try.

Firstly, there is the exercise approach. Sometimes the passing of food within the digestive tract can slow down, and taking a walk or some mild exercise can ‘jump start’ this process. You may have noticed that after a walk sometimes you release more gas, either by burping or breaking wind. This is a good way to relieve bloating, however embarrassing it may be.

Human Growth Hormone Helps Elevate Brain Power

As we age, it seems as though our brains suffer from a midlife crisis of their very own. Where did I leave my keys? Why did I come to the grocery store? Sometimes, we laugh it off as “getting old”, shake our heads and promise ourselves that we will never leave the house without a list again. Other times, it can be frightening as we wander the parking lot desperately trying to remember where we parked the car.

Do You Suffer From Motion Sickness And Need Relief?

Do you suffer from car sickness, air sickness, or get sick while flying in a plane? Of course these are all caused by the same thing, motion. Really this a side effect of an imbalance in the way your vision sees objects in motion, and what your vestibular system is interpreting. Incidentally, the vestibular system is a series of canals of the inner ear which we use to maintain balance and sense orientation and movement.

So what’s the big deal you say? The big deal is that many people are afraid to travel at all due to their fear of getting deathly ill right in the middle of their trip. Whether it’s flying, or taking a cruise on a luxury liner, or just traveling by train to another state to see relatives, this fear is very real. If you have never experienced motion sickness, I can tell you its pretty awful. Many people vomit uncontrollably, and need to lie down in order to just make it through the trip at all. Does that sound like a fun way to spend your vacation?

Altruism Results in Longer Life

There is some good news for people of an altruistic bent: they’ll live longer than their more selfish counterparts. A recent study by researchers from the University of Michigan LiveScience showed that people who volunteer for completely selfless reasons enjoy greater longevity than those who volunteer but for less noble reasons, such as brownie points at work, university credits and social pressure. So, unless all those celebs really mean it when they lend their weight to all those charities, they’re not going to live any longer than the rest of us. If, however, they are genuine then we’re going to be stuck with Oprah for a very long time.It appears that less noble reasons for volunteering also include making yourself feel better. So, if you volunteer at your local animal shelter because the puppies help you relax after a hard day at work, you won’t reap the benefits. It also doesn’t count if you use volunteering to boost your self-esteem or as a platform from which to build your self-perception as a caring person.

Analyzing Electric Waves With 12 Lead EKG Interpretation

Performing an electrocardiogram test (ECG or EKG) is essential for determining the activities of the heart which may lead to a disease. Doctors and medical technologists create an assessment of the heart condition through interpreting electric waves. A 12 lead EKG interpretation is a necessary tool which observes the activities of the heart through twelve lead points. Before doing an interpretation, one should have a keen knowledge of the different heart functions and parts to arrive at an accurate analysis. It measures three different directions of the heart: the right and left part; superior and inferior; and anterior and posterior.

Sciatic Pain Relief

The sacral bone, located where the spinal column ends, is connected to the pelvis bone by the sacroiliac joint bridges. The structure acts a shock absorber when we run and walk, protecting the spinal cord from injuries while supporting the upper body. The joint, also called the SI joint, restricts the movement of the lower body and any awkward or abnormal movement can cause the joint to dysfunction. Such movements also affect the sacroiliac nerve that runs through the ligaments and muscles of the joint. Any problems related to the SI joint can cause pain in the legs and back. Aging can also cause sacroiliac joint dysfunction as the muscles around the joint start to stiffen.

Biotechnology and Ultrasound Technology

Ultrasound Technology
Ultrasound makes use of sound waves of high in pitch that humans cannot hear them. It has become a great boon to medical science. Using ultrasound, doctors can peer deep inside every part of the body without cutting it. Cardiologists can see which blood vessels are thickened or obstructed and which muscles are being starved of blood. The sound waves are used by ophthalmologists to treat tumours in the eye, as well as to relive the pressure that causes glaucoma. A Urologist use the ultrasound to pulverize kidney stones. Unlike X-rays, ultrasound has no harmful effect compared with other body imaging systems, it’s also fast and portable and cheap. It eliminates screws and glues in plastic products.

Flossing For Good Heart Health

As well as brushing your teeth regularly and going for regular dental checkups, it is very important that you also floss regularly -2 or 3 times a week at least (but preferably on a daily basis). Some people will only floss when they can feel food stuck in between their teeth, but there may be smaller pieces of food in there, that you can’t feel and which will be rotting away and causing bad breath.
