While I am not a doctor, I have an intense interest in health and keep up to date with the latest health news. Today I wanted to discuss Forward Head Posture because it greatly affects quality of life, a value I think is important.
What is Forward Head Posture?
As someone who works by a computer often, I have familiarity with the topic of forward head posture, which refers to incorrect postural alignment of your head being in front of, instead of above, your spine as it should be. Hours of sitting at a computer, text messaging, driving, and other daily activities exert a lot of pressure on your neck and spine, and the result is often having Forward Head Posture. Most people I come across indeed exhibit some degree of the condition.
Vitamin D is one of the most misunderstood vitamins, yet one of the most important. Vitamin D helps your body absorb Calcium, regulates minerals in your bloodstream, and has been shown to improve immune system function. Lack of Vitamin D has been linked to Rickets (soft bones).
Some doctors want you to take a supplement to get enough Vitamin D. Others recommend eating Catfish or Sardines, which naturally have some Vitamin D. But the reality is that Vitamin D is only readily available in enough quantity through the Sun.
You’ve heard before that eyes are the window to the soul, I’m sure, but did you know that eyes can actually be important indicators of your health? Many general health conditions appear with symptoms that are visible on the eyes. I’ve gathered up some tips below for what to watch for.
This occurs when your sclera gets yellow. Yellow eyes are generally not an eye problem; rather, they tend to indicate a liver problem, such as hepatitis, or the result of alcoholism. It is important to go see an internist.
In a previous post, I explained how to manage your sleep. The seventh step I discussed was hypnotizing yourself into a deep relaxed state to be able to enjoy your sleep, and in this post I will discuss the method for doing so.
Once you get the steps memorized, you can do this nightly, weekly, or just when you are feeling particularly stressed.
1) Lie down on your back in a dark room.
2) Close your eyes and try to focus on the shapes of light that you will “see” when your eyes are closed.
A new study at LiveScience has shown that your microwave oven is capable of killing germs. The best use of this would be taking your dish cleaning sponge, which is a haven for bacteria, and soaking it with water, since microwaves act on water and excite the particles. Then place the sponge in your microwave for two minutes to kill or inactivate 99% of all germs. To kill the most elusive type of bacteria (Bacillus cereus spores) keep it on for four minutes. Do this once every couple of days to keep yourself safe.
Do you sleep enough? Chances are you don’t. It’s probably related to one of the following:
Uncomfortable bed, kids, work, friends and lastly (you guessed it) Internet.
While we read on a regular basis that people are supposed to get 8 hours of sleep or even more, some recent research shows just the opposite. It is well known that adults need less sleep than children, but no one was advocating cutting your sleep.
“people who get only 6 to 7 hours a night have a lower death rate than those who get 8 hours of sleep.”
