Aging And Skin Health

In 50 years, the synthesis of collagen type III is completely stopped. With age, the reduced solubility of the collagen molecules, and change their mechanical properties. Fibroblasts produce and elastin fibers, the quantity and quality of which decreases with age, they become rough and start to collapse. However, in the fibroblasts themselves destructive phenomena occur – it contributes to the accumulation of these non-oxidized products of metabolism. In addition, fibroblasts produce and enzymes such as elastase and collagenase, which destroys the fiber.

Thus, together with the aging process worse regenerative characteristics of the skin, skin thinning progresses, decrease in elasticity and skin tone, increase the stratum corneum, impaired pigmentation. The main change in the age connective tissue is an increase in collagen type III and type I collagen reduction and the amount of water, and a reduction ratio of "important stuff – the fibers." Violation of this ratio associated with a reduced concentration glycosaminoglycans. These changes lead to the formation of first fine wrinkles, and then deeper. However, when aging is also significant changes in blood vessels and skin appendages. Reduced the number of vertical capillary loops in the papillary dermis, as well as reduced synthesis of heparin.

Changes in the morphology and functional activity of the sebaceous glands and sweat glands leads to dry skin changes in the composition hydrolipid film that breaks the barrier of skin quality. Photoaging is different from the physiological aging of the skin more expressive negative signs. On exposed skin photoaging begins to be observed before the first signs of senescence.

Womens Health

Women and children is an indicator of the health of society as a whole. It is no accident in the civilized countries women's health – is the subject of special concern of governments and the strong media attention and Internet. Educational programs have raised awareness of women in women's health, beginning with adolescence. Every woman in the U.S. or European country knows what is needed annual Pap test and mammography after age 40, and almost every gynecologist – a personal doctor. My friend young American in frank conversation admitted that after moving to another state it once a year, continues to fly to their doctor for routine inspection, because only trusted this doctor and do not want to look for another.

Because of this relation to women's health in the community cases of advanced malignancy of the reproductive system are uncommon. In Russia, the vast majority of cases of cervical cancer, which is completely preventable, it is found in an incurable stage, and the number of abortions is highest in the world. What's the matter? To clarify the relationship Russian Women for Women's Health Service website "VebGinekolog" conducted an independent survey of 209 women, which showed the following: Of all those surveyed only 56% visit a gynecologist regularly, and only a third of these, prophylaxis, while the rest – of necessity, ie, due to pregnancy or disease. 28% refer to a gynecologist at least once a year and only when needed, 18% do not attend at all. It turned out that most women (52%) experiencing negative emotions at the thought of a visit to a gynecologist: the fear to hear from them that something is wrong, and even shame and fear.

After the visit, a third of women remain unsatisfied with the results. On the question of the relation to These doctors, only 50% of participants rated it as polling friendly, respectful and interested, and only a tenth of that number said that experiencing pleasant feelings when communicating with your doctor. 35% rated relation to them a doctor, as indifferent, and 8% – as arrogant and degrading. Do not believe in the necessity of regular medical surveillance, and accordingly, are showing their ignorance in matters of health 17% women, while the rest belong to their health very responsibly, but only 47% fully trusted the doctor, while 36% believe the low qualified physician and to some of the recommendations are in disbelief. 89% want to better themselves situation with the service of women's health in the country can improve such government measures as improving the quality of education in medical schools and the development of a free public health care system, 22% believe that women should increase their civic participation, to something better, 12% believe in the development of private medical insurance and, while 7% think that over time will improve by itself. So who care about women's health? It is not necessary whether to take on the world: the government to make women's health a priority, obstetrician-gynecologists think of his high calling of the healers of body and soul, medical web sites to improve the quality of information and women to become more active with regard to their own health?

Effective Remedy

Above all it should be clear that acne is not contagious. But is the skin condition most common and affects up to 80% of the population. Comes produced by segregation of excess oil by the sebaceous glands. It occurs mainly in young people aged 11 to 30 years and there are many factors that cause: hereditary factors, poor diet (especially from eating fatty foods), obstructions in the canal tissues, hormonal changes (espeialmentre prolific at the start teens), bacteria … not easy to cure acne, however, however, processed in a timely and appropriate way can we combat the outbreak and ensure that leave no marks. This is essential to tackle it from its first outbreaks, follow these two basic tips will help prevent it: 1) maintain good hygiene in areas prone to acne (face and back) because acne usually extends due to a bacterial infection going from one brand to another if we do not keep the affected area well clean.

And 2) care for the food and limit intake of fatty foods (chocolate, sausages, dairy products, refined flour …). Fat no acne. Excess fat production of our glands often accompanies the vast majority of processes with acne, unfortunately at puberty activates all hormones, also responsible for producing sebaceous fat. This process is more prevalent in males, it is associated with male hormones (androgynous), hence prime acne is more in men than in women. The most visible symptom is the dreaded acne pimples. They are produced by the accumulation of cells attached to the skin, the sebaceous gland is obstructed its natural outlet to the outside and the disruption produces a small clot that called shin. This alteration can submit two forms: a grain of white head, when not associated with hair follicle, and a black head or shin open when associated with a hair follicle. Evil may become entrenched treated pimples, pustules or infected lead, mainly due to the effect of bacteria, which as we proliferate uncontrollably when tallow segregation increases.

Machine Healthy

If the machine is not broken, then wash the linen, it just really bad. The second commandment of healthy eating – it's natural products. Only natural products are beneficial to health and body. No vitamin-mineral supplementation and dietary supplements can never compensate for the lack of food legumes, cereals, fresh vegetables, fruits and berries! On about vitamins and nutritional supplements, my advice to you: treat them like a drug, ie, they can be taken only if absolutely necessary (clinical indications and the appointment of a physician). As natural products there is absolutely everything needed for a full life of our body.

The third commandment of healthy eating – the food should be varied. You can not eat only a few products, no matter how useful they are. In nature there is no product that encompasses all, even essential, components of food! The fourth commandment of a healthy diet – refined foods are harmful. Purifying products from 'ballast substances', our food industry removes from them all biologically valuable ingredients: vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, essential amino acids, etc. Refined white premium flour, potato (or any other), starch, refined vegetable oil – it's all 'energy Dummy'.

In refined products, there is nothing vital to our body! The carbohydrates and fats in its purest form. All cells in our body are constantly updated, die and are removed alone, in their place are others. Check out endocrinologist for additional information. To ensure these processes are not needed fats and carbohydrates, but the very 'ballast substances': amino acids, vitamins, minerals, etc. The fifth commandment of healthy eating – eat only those products, which are useful for your body you are sure.

The average life expectancy of our men, according to official figures dropped to 57.8 years, and in fact up to 52 years. Mortality is 1.6 times the birth rate, many children are not healthy. Science has succeeded in combating infections fast – diseases which arise shortly after infection, and to which the body reacts very sick: fever, pain, vomiting, sneezing, etc. In this case it is necessary to help a man drugs that stimulate the body's defenses, and he is recovering.

But medicine has proved incapable of Suppression of slow infections because, as the patient and she misses the point of human infection and its carriers not to notice the initial stages of the disease. And when the disease manifests itself with numerous symptoms, she is virtually incurable. Medicine is known about the slow infections, but it is primarily concerned with viruses that are constantly seeking refuge in the cells, including single-celled parasites. That's just the latest medical absolutely no interest, but these are very simple: Trichomonas, Giardia, Chlamydia, fungi, roundworm, worms of the brain, reproductive organs, pinworms, intestinal worms of the gastrointestinal tract, trichina (muscle) – are slow infections. Almost all the parasites are "gourmand", which like all the vitamins, minerals, hormones, protein-carbohydrate foods, sugar and other eating lacquer substance, they produce toxins, swallowing the red blood cells, weakening the immune system. Reaching a certain stage of development, the parasites block the immune system, thus affecting species organ tissue: epithelial, connective, glandular and lymphoid. Immunodeficiency caused by microorganisms that live in the human organism (viruses, cocci, chlamydia, fungi, trichomonads, mycoplasmas, etc., and also the simplest – amoebas, Giardia, etc.) is the leading cause of severe diseases of the human body: atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, veins and blood vessels, diabetes, etc.

Get Ready To Retreat

Very often we are fighting with such areas of life that we absolutely no control. See more detailed opinions by reading what SAGE offers on the topic.. We are angry, fighting, dreaming that it was different. We complain, we are afraid, moan. And yet, in spite of our anger and resentment result remains the same: something with which we struggle, remains as it was. As much as we clenched teeth, no matter how clenched their fists, nothing changed, we can not. See James A. Levine, M.D. for more details and insights. In fact, we only add fuel to the fire and making this problems. Quiet retreat does not mean that you have surrendered and laid down their arms.

Does not require it of laziness, apathy and indifference. This is only a manifestation of our desire to stop rebel, trying to subdue his life requirements. The wisdom of this strategy is simple: even though you and I want life to be different, it remains the same. This does not mean you should give up and not try to improve what needs improving. This strategy addressed to the irritation we feel when we fail to achieve the desired result.

To learn how to retreat, to begin with may be small. For example, you wash the dishes and suddenly smash a plate. Instead of scream and stomp their feet, think about how you can take at this point, which includes a broken plate. Do not be scared, do not panic. Only a calm acceptance of what happened. Before you lies shattered on the floor plate. Question: what to do next? Plate is broken. You can throw a fit and split another one, and try to relax and take a humorous addition to what we are all clumsy. Let me give another example, based on the will Your altercation with his wife. If she says something that makes you irritated, think, and do not answer whether you are in a different way. The situation is the same as in the previous example: comment spouse has already sounded. And as you choose how to react to it. If you are able to change their old habits to react emotionally, you will be able to steer the conversation in a peaceful course. Once you start experimenting with this strategy, you will notice amazing results. Calmer than you become, the easier it will be your life. Ceasing to focus on the negative, you will not have to unwind the spiral of negative emotions. After a while you begin to have a different attitude to the chaos and confusion, stop over-dramatized it. Very often, the retreat is suitable for the process of the phrase 'all that is done, all the better. "
