Get Better Sleep Into Nights

1) Just an hour before you go to your bed, have a warm shower with as much heat as you can bear. This will automatically relax and alleviate pain in your muscles and bones.

2) If your physician has prescribed a sleeping pill, take it. It will be a plus point. While lying in your bed, do a breathing exercise for 10 minutes. Exhale and inhale air so that enough oxygen gets inside your body to help your body function well while you sleep.

3) The third step is to focus on a happy image. It could be about your spouse, children or grandchildren or something else that makes you happy.

As you concentrate on this beautiful happy image, before you know it, you will be dead asleep.

If people can start sleeping better because of my technique, nothing else could make me happier. Because I know the stresses of the day overwhelm you so much that they begin to affect your sleep at night. So try my technique and get benefitted. It’s a simple method, yet so powerful leading you to nights of sound and blessed sleep.

Must know about Basic Awareness Hypertension

Some people are more at a risk of suffering from hypertension, and it is interesting to know more about the factors that make one more vulnerable to hypertension.

1. Age

– As one ages, the risk of high blood pressure increases as well. So for men, if they are above 45 years of age, they are at a higher risk of suffering from hypertension. Similarly, if women are over 65 years of age, they are equally at the risk of suffering from hypertension.

2. Family History

– Similarly, if one has a family history of hypertension, one is more likely to suffer from the same.

3. Obesity

– And being overweight also makes one more vulnerable towards suffering from hypertension because if one is overweight, more blood needs to be pumped for supply to blood vessels.

4. Not Being Physically Active

– If one is not physically active, the risk of contracting hypertension increases because the heart is required to pump harder, and this makes the force on arteries higher as well.

5. Tobacco Consumption

– Tobacco consumption too is related with high blood pressure. Not only does tobacco increases the heart rate with immediate effect, but it also increases the risk of damage to the arteries.

6. Excessive Consumption Of Salt

– Consumption of too much salt in one’s diet causes the body to retain water, and this too can increase the blood pressure. In the same regard, it is very important for one to get the right amount of potassium in one’s diet, and that is because potassium balances the sodium in one’s body. When one does not get the right amount of potassium in one’s diet, one tends to accumulate too much sodium in the blood.

7. Right Amount Of Vitamin D In One’s Diet

– One needs to take care that one gets the right amount of Vitamin D in one’s diet. Vitamin D can affect an enzyme produced by the kidneys, and that can have a direct influence on the blood pressure. Mushroom, eggs and dairy products are some good sources of Vitamin D.

8. Stress

– High stress levels too are attributed to a temporary increase in the blood pressure. If one tries to beat the stress by use of tobacco, alcohol or a high diet, this may work towards aggravating the condition.

Thyroid Disorders

Commonly known as hypothyroidism, it is a chronic ailment that can occur at any age. The ailment onsets when the immune system of the body destroys the thyroid gland, and hence, its ability to release thyroid hormone is completely tampered. People with mild case of hypothyroidism may not show obvious symptoms, but those with severe temperament may end exhibiting symptoms such as:

  • Constipation
  • Dry skin, thin hair
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Puffy, pale face
  • Weight gain
  • Intolerance to cold
  • Unbalanced mensuration cycle (in females)
  • Enlarged thyroid (goiter)

Named after the doctor, who first revealed it, it is a common form of overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism. It is an autoimmune disorder that strikes when the immune system of the body attacks the thyroid gland, and hence, results in overproduction of thyroid hormone. With high level of thyroid within the blood stream, the body may show symptoms such as:

  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Intolerance to heat
  • Excessive sweating
  • Fatigue
  • Bulging eyes and improper vision
  • Frequent bowl movements or even diarrhea
  • Hand tremors
  • Irregular heartbeat

A noncancerous result of the thyroid gland, goiter is common worldwide and is considered mainly an outcome of iodine deficiency within the body. Goiter can affect at any age, but is common in people above 40. Medical history, pregnancy, radiation exposure, and usage of certain medication are the major risk factors of this illness. Mild goiter cases may not reveal any symptoms, while complex goiter cases may show up with following symptoms:

  • Tightness/swelling in the neck
  • Wheezing or coughing
  • Hoarseness of voice
  • Difficulty in breathing and/or swallowing food

About Exercising Diabetes Sufferers

Exercise helps diabetes sufferers in many ways. Weight is easier controlled when exercising regularly. Blood sugar level, which is a major concern for all diabetes sufferers, is lowered, thanks to exercise. Additionally, exercise lessens the probability of a heart disease, which is also very wide-spread among diabetes sufferers.

Also, regular exercise helps to improve one~s overall condition and this way reduces the risk of long-term complications. Regular exercise can even prevent diabetes in people who still have not developed it but are susceptible to it.

Despite the numerous advantages of exercise, do not underestimate the risks. Let your doctor decide if taking exercise is recommendable for you and if yes ~ what kind of exercise will be less risky. One of the dangers for diabetes sufferers are that exercise might change your reaction to insulin or might lead to an abrupt drop in blood sugar level, which is another risk for you.

In addition to the general advice for exercising, there are some tips, which for diabetes sufferers are especially important to follow. For them wearing comfortable shoes (and
clothes) is a must because the occurrence of a single blister on the foot might lead to a serious infection that requires time and drugs to heal.

Special attention should be paid to drinking enough water and any kinds of liquid in order to avoid dehydration.
Dehydration during exercising occurs because the body evaporates liquid in order to keep cool and if you do not drink water while exercising, you will get dehydrated, which is bad for your blood sugar level.

So, what kind of exercise is recommended? Exercise can be any physical activity ~ from cleaning the house, to regularly climbing the stairs, to strength training. It all depends on the physical condition.
