There Is Never an Excuse to ignore High Blood Pressure

I used to thinkt that people in good health just had "healthy genes" and that daily habits didn't affect health very much. Due to that belief, when my doctor diagnosed me with high blood pressure and prescribed a medication to treat it, I didn't take it at first. I soon got a health "wake up call" when I began experiencing chest pains. My wife took me to the ER and, thankfully, they determined I wasn't having a heart attack, like I thought I was. The next day, I began taking my medication and living a healthier lifestyle. Soon, I was able to stop the medication due to my lifestyle changes, but I still monitor my blood pressure at home just to "stay on the safe side." I wanted to share my story to help others and plan to post many more health tips on my new blog.

Like most facility operators, you probably think that the nitrogen will last almost forever, but you are mistaken. Not paying attention to the tubes in which the precious reproductive material is stored is the same as telling your customers their dreams of having children are not important. Read More 

Why You Should Consider Vision Therapy For Your Child

If you have a child with vision problems, you've likely already taken them to the optometrist to obtain prescription eyeglasses.  However, eyeglasses are designed to compensate for visual problems; they do not correct them.  When your child removes their glasses, they will have the same vision issues that they had prior to putting them on.  Vision therapy is a great alternative that can possibly go a long way toward correcting your child's vision problems, so that they are able to have good vision, even if their glasses are broken.

3 Alternative Therapy Options To Try During Pregnancy

Understanding The Basic Causes Of Breast Density

Once you reach the age of 40 it is essential to have regular mammograms in order to monitor your breasts for any abnormalities. The purpose of a mammogram is to allow the doctors to determine if the internal structure of your breast tissue has any unidentifiable breast density and growth. Breast density shown through a mammogram appears light on the file and the surrounding fatty tissues are darker in color. This allows the doctors to get a better determination on the amount of healthy breast tissue and possible presence of abnormalities. Read More
