How to Eat Healthy   Leave a comment

Eating Healthy Foods Matters

 

Eating proper foods for the main meals, which most people consider to be breakfast and dinner along with healthy snacks are very important to our health. It is most important to make sure children get the proper foods they need to aid in growth and healthy bones and teeth. The meals prepared at home if done according to our basic food groups, will provide for proper nutrition.

Having a daily form of exercise is necessary to have a healthy body and mind. The body is able to relax and the thought process is helped when both nutrition and exercise is used properly in daily family planning.

The Power to Endure and Persevere of a Career Woman   Leave a comment

The strength we find within ourselves gives us endurance and perseverance power.

The Power to Endure and Persevere

 

Being a career woman with a family is challenging in many ways. Spending time with family, while keeping a schedule up- to-date with meetings, and job performances are demanding.  I t  leaves very little time for personal care and activities.

To be able to have a meaningful career and a family life that is well organized, takes lots of effort and adequate planning from day- to-day. Having a physically fit body with a competent mind to make decisions are absolutely required.

There are many things that challenge our ability to endure and persevere. When we discover the power within ourselves, we become victorious. The strength we find within ourselves gives us endurance and perseverance power.

The best gifts anyone can give to themselves are good health habits and activities to stay healthy.

Depression in the Elderly   Leave a comment

Depression in the Elderly

Depression in the elderly is a widespread problem that is often not diagnosed and frequently under-treated. Many people will not admit to the signs and symptoms of depression, for fear that they will be labeled as being mentally unstable, weak or crazy. Some people may be aware of their depression, but believe that nothing can be done about it.

Friends and family can help the depressed elderly person by spending time with them. Spending time with grandchildren is a way for the elderly to stay active. Sometimes the young adults need to be reminded to spend some time with their grandparents.

When Depression is Due to Loss

Each individual has to find the courage and strength to continue to live their life at their own pace. Not everyone deal with tragedies and losses the same as others. Some people need a longer time and a slower pace to return to living a normal life after losing someone.

Preventing Childhood Obesity   Leave a comment

Preventing Obesity

Exercise:

From crib to adult years exercise is very important. When babies are placed on a quilt on the floor, they can move around easier, and have closer contact with the parents and family. This aids in crawling and walking a lot sooner. There are many things parents can do to help their children get the proper exercise they need.  The best encouragement for exercise is for parents to engage in an exercise program with their children.  Having exercise equipment in the home is profitable to both parents and their children.

Scheduling:

Having a set time for each meal is very important, it prevent snacking before meals that can prevent eating the most important food. If a child is not hungry during the meal because they are filled from snacks, they aren’t going to eat, or if they are encouraged to eat, this will add extra calories and will lead to weight gain.  And it sends a message to the brain to eat, even though the child isn’t hungry, that is carried throughout their teenage years and into adult years, which can result in obesity.

Good Health Habits:

As parents, we pass much of our cultural traditions to our children. We should choose things that are good to aide in preventing obesity in childhood, and to encourage good health habits in future generations.

How we prepare meals and scheduling are examples we set for our children.  Practicing good health habits includes proper hygiene, hand washing to prevent transmitting germs, and personality traits with respect for parents and others are a part of good health habits.

The First Defence against Fighting Germs is Hand Washing   Leave a comment

The First Defence against Fighting Germs is Hand Washing

Microorganisms: How They Are Transmitted 

Microorganisms known as germs are minute living bodies that cannot be seen by the naked eye, such as bacterium or protozon. Listed below are the following ways by which microorganisms can be carried from one host to another:

Human Carriers:  any person who has recent recovered from an infectious disease remains a carrier of that infection that was caused by the organism, and may transfer the organism to another host.

Air: Pathogenic microorganisms in the respiratory tract may be discharged from the mouth or nose. These organisms that are present may carry infection if they resist drying. They will settle on food, dishes, clothing, skin, and as such.

 

Food borne:  Food and water handled by infected persons may contain pathogenic organisms acquired from them or through fecal or insect contamination.

Insects: May be physical carriers or may act as the Anopheles mosquito. Flies are also carriers of organisms.

Animal Carriers:  There are some organisms that are pathogenic for animals that can be transmitted to humans through direct or indirect contact. And is a link between animals and humans. Therefore, the animal carrier is also an intermediary host.

Soil-borne: The spore-forming organism in soil can enter the body through broken skin such as a cut, sore, or wound.  Fruits and vegetables, such as roots, should be cleaned thoroughly before being eaten raw, to avoid ingesting organisms, from the soil.

*Pathogenic __ disease-producing. Normally, used in reference to bacteria.

Good hygiene and cleanliness are the best defence against fighting against many diseases.

Streptococcal Bacteria

Streptococcal Bacteria is referred to as a fast moving killer. In May of 1994, Medical scientists made known to the public that a highly virulent strain of Streptococcal Bacteria is known to be a “Deadly flesh eating bacteria,” that is in the United States and in other parts of the world as well. The disease, is a serious concern to Medical Science, because the symptoms produced by the bacteria, are often disregarded in the early stages – thereby, making it dangerously life threatening.

Symptoms:

The Streptococcal Bacteria virus causes the skin, muscles, and tissue to decay. And can spread as fast as an inch per hour. It can be transmitted by touching an infected person. The bacteria, creates a toxic enzyme poison, which poisons the flesh and causes it to die. The toxins produced by the infection poisons skin, muscles, tissue, and internal organs; which in turn, cause the white corpuscles known to fight infection, to careen out of control. When this situation occurs, the lungs, liver, and kidneys shut down, causing the person to go into toxic shock. Death can occur.

The Other Faces of Addiction   Leave a comment

The Other Faces of Addiction

When most people hear the word addiction, they associate it with heroin, and cocaine.  They don’t consider the facts behind addiction;  those are the other faces.  There are other people who are addicted to other things that many of us would think are harmless, which are misguided beliefs. Anything that one feels they can’t live without, that satisfies them, and gives them a sense of comfort and security,  is an addiction.

The faces behind this kind of addiction are people of all ages, and nationalities, professionals, and nonprofessionals. This kind of addiction, can trick the individual into thinking they are not addicted.  And that they are different from those who are using heroin or cocaine.  Be it heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, or others, any kind of an addiction is very serious.

My Story:

I once was addicted to crushed ice. I went to bed with a bottle of crushed ice, and I woke up with a desire for my crushed ice. I had to have my crushed ice, throughout the day, and night. I realized that this was not any different than any other addiction, and I prayed to God to help me to get rid of this addiction, and he did. It took me a while, but I defeated that overwhelming desire to have crushed ice.

My problem was so serious I would freeze a bottle of water, and wrap it against the kitchen sink, until the ice was very soft.  (That was a noisy process.)  My husband and children teased me about my ice eating habit. But that didn’t bother me, I didn’t care. The thing about any addiction is that the individual becomes insensitive to others. Crunching on ice, and making loud noises while breaking the ice into pieces in the bottle was rude, but I was addicted to crushed ice.

I didn’t realize any of those things I was doing was wrong. It all seemed harmless. In my weakness, I judged myself, and made the decision that this was O.K., because I wasn’t hurting anyone. We all have to have a spiritual awakening before we can come face to face with our weaknesses, in order for us to overcome them.
