Menstrual Cup, All You Need To Know About It

I switched to using a menstrual cup some 2.5 years ago and it was probably the best decision I ever took. The trend in India had just started back then and I was glad to give it a try and since then there has been no looking back. But I do get surprised that even now, not many women know about it, and if they know, they are very hesitant of using it.

What To Do When You Pull A Muscle?

Pulling a muscle is one of the most common injuries you can suffer while exercising. It usually happens when you push yourself too hard, and your muscle overstretches. This can also be referred to as a muscle strain – or even a muscle tear in extreme circumstances. With a pulled muscle, you’re in a fair bit of pain and are unable to do certain activities that require the use of your muscle.

As per me, personal hygiene is one of the most important aspects of maintaining good health. When it comes to a female body, this need is even more.

Since these are the most sensitive parts of the body, I take no risks of using unknown or cheap products. But then one has to use a product or two to understand which one is the best.

A Guide To Breaking Bad Health Habits

(Image: Pixabay / CC0 Licence)

 

There are certain things that we all do that we know we really shouldn’t. Whether it’s eating a little too much sugar, smoking cigarettes, or rarely exercising, we all have something that – in the harsh light of day – we know isn’t the wisest choice for our health.

 

Of course, a new year always heralds an opportunity to break these bad health habits – but, unfortunately, actually defeating these habits once and for all can be a tough ask. However, if you’re hoping that 2019 will be the year where you can kick one of your bad health habits for good, then the guide below may be able to help you achieve exactly that.

 

Focus on the ultimate goal

 

When seeking to conquer bad health habits, people often focus solely on the end itself; they will, for example, say that want to “quit smoking” or “eat less sugar”. However, it’s usually preferable to reshape your thinking a little, transforming your goal into something that sounds a lot more enticing. For example, rather than “quit smoking”, you could tell yourself you’re “reducing your risk of cancer” or “improving your lung function. This simple shift in thinking helps to emphasize the benefits of quitting your bad health habit, rather than focusing on the self-denial aspect.

 

Decide if you want to take a gradual or abrupt approach

 

  • A gradual approach would be cutting from 10 cigarettes to five in the first week, then moving to zero in the second; or exercising once a week for the first month, then twice a week for the second month.
  • An abrupt approach is the opposite; it means throwing yourself wholeheartedly into the change, quitting smoking entirely, or starting a three-sessions-per-week exercise regime right from the get-go.

 

There’s no right or wrong decision here, by the way – everyone responds differently, so it’s best to make the decision on what you think will work best for you. When you have established which approach you prefer, choose a date at which your approach will begin; if you’ve adopted a gradual approach, you’ll also need to plan the next few weeks or months to incorporate the next stages, too.

 

Research options to help make the transition easier

 

Even when focusing primarily on the benefits of changing your bad health habit, it’s still important to acknowledge the process is going to be tough. You may need a little help to make such a significant change easier to deal with. If you’re looking to quit smoking, you could look to purchase a few vape liquid sample packs and a vape pen; if you’re hoping to exercise more, a personal trainer might be a wise choice; or if you’re looking to cut sugar, you could explore sugar alternatives. Again, breaking a bad health habit shouldn’t feel like self-denial or even a challenge, so utilize whatever you can to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.

 

Make it possible to monitor your progress

 

It’s always helpful to have hard data to affirm that breaking your bad health habit has benefited you. Returning to the examples discussed so far, this could mean taking an exhaled carbon monoxide test if you’re a smoker, take a blood sugar reading if you’re cutting sugar, or time yourself running 1k if you’re looking to exercise more. Whichever habit you’re trying to break, there should be a similar metric that you can establish as a starting point. You can then refer back to this baseline metric once you’ve broken your habit, allowing you to see how much good breaking your habit is doing.

 

Hopefully, the guide above should assist you in breaking your bad health habits once and for all in 2019 – good luck!

What is the Right Time to Visit an Orthodontist?

source

An orthodontist uses tools similar to ones that your dentist would, such as braces, Invisalign, and retainers. However, orthodontics can help bring your teeth into physical alignment with the jaw. Getting them in the right alignment can affect how well you can chew, sleep, or talk. More importantly, if you want a perfect smile for yourself or someone you care about, you should have the number of a skilled and capable orthodontist on your phone!

Keep in mind though that only knowing a good orthodontist won’t be enough for the sake of your dental health. It is equally important to know the right time to visit them. Below we have gathered the recommendations from dentists for guidance:

Dentist Recommendation for Children

You should consider visiting an orthodontic clinic if your kid is experiencing any of the following problems:

  1. They have crowded or misplaced teeth or ones that protrude
  2. You have often caught them clenching/grinding their teeth
  3. The teeth enamel is in a bad condition
  4. Your kids suck their thumb or fingers or used to do so
  5. Biting, chewing, and/or speaking is problematic for your child
  6. They are missing some teeth
  7. Your child is losing their baby teeth earlier or later than they should
  8. They have an overbite, which means they end up biting their cheek or mouth palate. Not treating an overbite could result in other dental issues.

Benefits of early treatment

It is best to have your children visit the orthodontist as early as possible. There are many advantages to early treatment or as it is known as phase one. For instance, if their teeth are growing in a crowded manner, a skilled orthodontist could create space in your child’s mouth. When the remaining adult teeth come in, there would be ample space for them to grow.

Similarly, crooked teeth or an overbite may lead to low self-confidence children and young adults. The emotional trauma associated with poorly positioned teeth can be prevented with timely application of orthodontics. Early treatment could also reduce or prevent physical trauma associated with orthodontics later in life. Moreover, misaligned teeth could prevent your kid from brushing properly and affect their dental health. Finally, improperly positioned teeth are at a higher risk of injury on the playground. Keep your child safe from such an injury by getting them treated at the earliest.

If they are suffering from any of the problems mentioned above, then the orthodontist will follow phase one with further treatment, but only when your child is old enough.

Even though timely treatment is important, you might be wondering what that means regarding your child’s age. There is no right age for receiving orthodontic treatment. That applies to children, young adults, as well as adults. It is always better to visit an orthodontist and get a better idea about the timing of the treatment.

Dentist Recommendation for Adults

Think you are too old for braces? Chances are that you aren’t! The right time for adults or young adults to visit an orthodontist is once their teeth have been set. Since we regularly use our teeth, they can face wear and tear. Some areas of special wear though arise from incorrect teeth alignment. If that is the case with you, go see your dentist. They could recommend the orthodontic treatment you’d need.

The action you can take

The good thing about seeing an orthodontist is that you can do so whenever you feel the need. That’s because there isn’t a need for a referral. One problem solved, but other things might concern you. Only visit or let your child visit an orthodontist they are comfortable with. Look for a professional who will take the time to listen to your concerns and have satisfactory answers to them.

After you have found the right orthodontist for you – or your family – make an appointment to see them. During an initial appointment, you will receive a full examination and a discussion of any problems that might be present. Besides that, the orthodontist will also give you an estimate of the cost of the procedure that is best for your condition. Finally, they will also let you know how long it will take for the treatment to be completed.

If you’ve already started searching for Orthodontics Near Me, you know where to come for high-quality dental treatment. On the other hand, if you are still thinking about getting it, don’t waste time thinking about whether this is the right time to do so or not. When it comes to orthodontics, the answer to that question is whenever you are having alignment issues. Go visit your orthodontist if the quality of your bite could use some improvement as well. An orthodontist has the right skills and training for treating such issues. So, why not take advantage of their expert opinion?

What To Do If You Suspect You Caught a Hospital Bug

We all end up in a hospital once or twice in our lives. Whether it is an accident that causes our hospitalization or we need a major operation, it is stressful enough to be stuck in bed and not seeing our family all day. If the inconvenience is topped by a bad infection or a bug, this can lengthen our stay and make us miss more of our lives. If you suspect that you got an infection at the hospital, you will need to act. Find out below what you can do.

Ask to See the Records

One of the rights of patients is that they can see the hygiene records of the hospital and ask the right questions. After all, your health insurance is paying for the treatment and your stay might cost hundreds of dollars each week. You need to find out whether there are enough risk prevention measures in place, so you can ensure that you are safe and cannot be a subject to infection.

Talk to Patient Liaison Officers

If your hospital is not willing to show you the records and give you more than general information, you will need to contact the patient liaison officers. This will help you negotiate the meetings and get more information. If you suspect that you caught a salmonella or e Coli bug while in hospital, it is your right to find out about the hygiene rating of the kitchen

Get to Know Your Rights

You also have to familiarize yourself with the health care law and regulations, so you know exactly what your rights are. Whether you decide to make a formal complaint or ask the department to investigate, maybe get in touch with your local politician, you will be able to find the right route to put things right and prevent the same thing happening to other patients. You might want to consult with personal injury lawyers to make sure that you are not missing out on compensation.

Talk to Other Patients

To gather evidence, chances are that you will also need to talk to other patients, to see if anyone else has been affected. If it is a major outbreak, and the management is trying to silence you, it is important that you gather other people around you, as it will be harder for the hospital to ignore a dozen or so patients.

Find Out What You Can Do to Make a Change

Apart from holding people responsible for the infection, you will also have to get in touch with nonprofit organizations that can help you persuade the health care company to introduce new preventive measures and change their ways, so they get better at protecting patients in their care in the future.

 

If your hospitalization caused you an infection and made you stay out of work and away from your family for longer than your treatment required it, you should make sure that this doesn’t happen again to you or other patients.
