An Eagle’s Eye View Of Chicken Allergy


Lisa was at a birthday party of one of her dear officemates. She has not been fond of attending parties at her age, which is 23. As a child, she was not really into attending parties even of her friends, neighbors and relatives.

No, don’t get it wrong. It is not that Lisa is virtually and practically not sociable. She is very friendly and very outgoing. Lisa admits that she has been afraid of attending parties, especially children’s parties when she was still a kid.

Lisa has a deep dark secret. Don’t get it wrong again. This girl is not a character to judge. Lisa has chicken allergy. It means she can never take in chicken meat because adverse reactions occur in her body whenever she does that.

So that explains why she was not fond of parties, especially when she was just a kid. Most children parties cater or serve fast foods and one of the most popular food served is chicken meat.

It is because more people prefer chicken meat than any other because it is considered to have less fat.. Besides, it is one of the more flexible edible meat around.

Chicken allergy

If you have the symptoms that would be described later, then, you are positive to have chicken allergy. Take note that allergy to chicken is somehow similar to allergy to other meat.

Just like there are people allergic to pork and beef, there are also people allergic to chicken meat. Some people, however, are allergic to chicken but are not allergic to chicken eggs. There are those, on the other hand, that are allergic to both.

In the United States, statistics have it that about 0.6% to 5% of overall reported food allergies annually are chicken meat allergy.

Manifestations of chicken meat allergy

Among the most common and prevalent manifestation or symptom of chicken allergy are frequent infections like ear infections and bladder infections; asthma attack; bed-wetting; eczema; skin rashes; acne; unusual fatigue; insomnia; migraine; depression and chronic disturbance in the gastrointestinal system.

Some people with chicken allergy even develop sinusitis which is somehow unusual if they don’t really have the history. Hives and joint pains are also prevalent to them.

Symptoms of chicken meat allergy occur or show up after several minutes of in take. To some people, the reaction could surface in as fast as at least ten minutes, while in others it can be as slow and prolonged to take up to 24 to 48 hours.

Treatment and prevention of chicken allergy

Chicken meat contains allergens or allergy-producing substances that are called purines. These substances are mainly cited for the onset of several other diseases like gout. Gouts are characterized by the formation or onset of kidney stones.

Purines in chicken meat may lead to excessive uric acid accumulation in the body that can possibly lead to what is called kidney stones.

Thus, if chicken allergy symptoms show up, it is important to immediately consult or seek your doctor’s help. That would prevent further ailments or disease from coming out.

The doctor will have to prescribe several medications to treat or help curtail chicken allergy.

The best prevention would be to avoid eating chicken meat. Allergies to substances, you should remember, is not curable but only treatable.

There are a lot of other meat that could taste better than chicken meat, right?

 

A Smoker Needs His Rest

Smoking and Sleeping
I’ll come clean: I smoke. I know, I know, it’s a bad habit, and I’m the process of quitting. But, I like having a cigar with my dad on special occasions, and after writing for hours, a cigarette break can be exactly what I need. Besides, I smoke cloves, which unlike regular cigarettes, actually smell and taste good.


But I do realize the health risks of smoking: increased heart disease, lung cancer, and emphysema, plus a whole lot more. Here’s the thing, though. I’m young. I just turned 23. At this age, it’s easy to write those things off; even if they do happen, it won’t be for another 15, 20, 30+ years.


So why am I quitting? I’ll get to the point: smoking and sleeping don’t mix. It took me a while to figure it out, but after smoking a lot and not sleeping, I began to put two and two together. The problem is nicotine is a stimulant; it will keep you up. You wouldn’t drink coffee or a coke before trying to go to bed, so why smoke? I guess if cravings were making you jittery and keeping you up, it might make sense, but that just brings me to my next point.


Nicotine is extremely addicting, and like any addictive substance, heavy users start experiencing withdrawal as soon as that last cigarette is snubbed out. In fact, heavy smokers probably won’t be able to sleep much more than 4 to 6 hours because of withdrawal symptoms.


In short, nicotine affects sleep: you get worse sleep, and less sleep when you smoke.


I’m not writing this to try and make anyone quit, or to say that smoking is bad. You’re an adult, you can make your own decisions, and you don’t need me telling you what to do.


My goal is to educate; if you smoke and can’t sleep, maybe it’s time to think about cutting back or quitting all together. If you’re in the process of quitting, congratulations. Perhaps we can quit together.


Sleeping is good, and you deserve to sleep better and longer.

Anabolic Hormones - A Two-Edged Sword

When I was a young boy, emerging muscles were the coolest thing. If a vein popped out a little, that was even more awesome. There were no fitness centers or body building gyms to amount to anything back then (Stone Age). If you aspired to brawn, Charles Atlas paraphernalia advertised in comic books was guaranteed to help you turn the cards on the guy who kicked sand in your face on the beach last summer.


Back then, muscles seemed more legitimate if you earned them from work on the farm or from other labor. Muscles from exercise were thought of as sort of “artificial”. So I did lots of farm work and construction in the summers. But leaving nothing to chance, I also cheated by building my own weight set with a pipe that I would insert into the holes of cement blocks.


My dad was of the school that I had better be careful or I could get all “muscle bound” if I exercised too much. I guess he must have worried as he saw me in the back yard hoisting my pipe with blocks dangling from each end. But I loved the exercise and reveled in the pumped feeling in my biceps.


Sorry to sound so narcissistic. But it’s the way all of us “guys” thought. We would even compare bumps on the school bus every morning and banter about who could do the most push-ups. This is not to say muscles and fitness are still not important to me, but now I focus primarily on exercise that will help me stay healthy, in shape and trained for the competitive sports I play.


I bring this up not to brag or appall you, but as a backdrop for the current situation in the sport and bodybuilding worlds. Now that society is off the farm, exercise has become a perfectly legitimate way to replace the physical activity lost with modern living. The use of hormones to force the body to grow in a way it would never do naturally, however, is a perversion of what should be clean and healthy personal development. Anabolic hormones totally miss the point of it all. The freaky bodies that can result are aberrations, yet magazines are filled with their photo spreads as if drug induced bodies are icons we should emulate and aspire to.


Aside from the fact that only people with natural bodies and developed talents should compete in sports (otherwise drugs are competing, not athletes), the real tragedy is the toll on health any hormone can take. Of all the drugs I used in medical practice, hormones scared me the most. They could create dramatic and immediate results (and that is their allure), but hormone treatment continued for any length of time always seemed to come back to harm the patient and haunt me.
An example in humans is the use of testosterone patches in women to increase libido. Take them very long and although your passion may be triggered, your voice will deepen and a beard will start to grow (not so good for the libido of the husband). Corticosteroids for allergies can result in extremely serious adrenal gland diseases, immune suppression and vulnerability to infection. In veterinary medicine the same things can happen. One situation I am reminded of that occurred many years ago was related to hormones given to dogs for birth control. Years after discontinuing the drugs, treated dogs would present to veterinarians with life threatening illness, extreme thirst and white blood cell counts off the charts. When their enlarged abdomens were surgically explored, a gigantic uterus would be found filled with pus – quarts of it! All this just because a little ole hormone was given years ago without a hint of an immediate ill effect.


You see, the body is extremely wise. It is not fooled or endlessly forgiving. If you break your arm and put it in a sling, the muscles don’t grow bigger, they atrophy. Why? Because the body is also efficient. Why grow muscles or even maintain them if they are not needed? When the sling is removed, the arm will have lost much of its strength. The body shuttled its resources into building bigger muscles in the arm that had to do double duty. It’s a very pragmatic thing. The body doesn’t pay attention to your agenda; it just does what it must to stay alive, make do and meet stress.


The same thing would happen to both arms – to your whole body – if you had servants do everything for you as you reclined in an easy-chair. Then, if all of a sudden you had to get out of the chair and run a mile or lift 200 pounds to survive, you wouldn’t make it. Your wasted and weak body could not rise to the challenge.


Hormones are like a metabolic sling placed on the hormone producing glands—testicles, ovaries, adrenal, thyroid, pituitary, etc. They replace the hormones that the glands normally produce. When this happens there is a negative feed-back: the more hormones from the outside that are introduced into the body, the less the glands do what they no longer need to – synthesize hormones. So the metabolic “muscles” (glands) that create hormones atrophy. If all of a sudden the outside source of hormones is withdrawn, your weak and withered organs may then not have the strength to take up the task again and supply hormones. Since about every function in the body is hormone-influenced, and every hormone interacts with every other hormone in some way, catastrophe results. Is it any wonder that modern anabolic body builders are also racked with heart disease, cancer, immune disorders, digestive failure and metabolic disorders in their (early) later years? The use of anabolic hormones is most certainly a case of desire being a ruinous tenant of its landlord, the body.


Consider this also with regard to anabolics. A normal body weight of 170 lbs. can be changed to 250 lbs. of solid muscle. To get there, massive amounts of food have to be consumed. Yet digestive “muscle” is not being built to keep pace, So the digestive tract and associated organs (liver, pancreas, gall bladder) suited for maintaining a 170 lb. body is forced to digest and assimilate extremely large amounts of food? The result is digestive exhaustion and resultant damage that can last a lifetime. Most of us suffer some digestive problems and intolerances as we age due in large part to eating abuses when we were young. Note the number of television commercials hawking stomach remedies. Body builders force feeding can exaggerate this damage leaving a ruined digestive system tolerant of little more than Maalox..


A huge number of high school kids are trying to “get big” with steroids. What an incredibly dangerous proposition for them. Parents, be aware that this is not innocuous. If the plea is that a little won’t hurt, particularly if they are “cycled” properly, don’t buy it. If the argument is that taking them is the only way to excel in a sport, then change sports. Insist.


For you adults who are toying with the idea of taking hormones for one reason or another, think long and hard. Read the contraindications and cautions on the drug insert sheets. Take heed. Find other ways to stimulate your body’s own natural ability to enhance or improve itself through exercise, lifestyle and nutrition. Don’t put your organs in slings and then expect long-term benefit.


The piper will always be paid.

An Isagenics Body Cleansing System Will Help You Get Healthy

When you stop and think about the old saying, “You are what you eat,” it stands true. Certain foods that you eat have a way of staying with you, longer than you’d prefer. How many times have you gone out to dinner and come home to indigestion and heartburn? Or how many times has the food you’ve eaten caused you to be irregular? The chances are it happens on a regular basis. However, by adapting a Isogenix body cleansing system as part of your life, you will feel healthier, have more energy, and reduce any digestive problems you may have been experiencing.

Unfortunately, there are numerous toxins that break through and get caught up in our systems. While our bodies can do miraculous things, unfortunately, they are not able to cleanse themselves completely of the toxic waste that builds up. When these wastes do not get eliminated, they cause damage to the cells in our body, which in turn, do not allow the organs in are body to work properly. A Isogenics body cleansing system will help your body’s elimination system to function in a more efficient manner, allowing it to rid your body of more waste. As you get older, your body’s ability to effectively cleanse itself slows down and a body cleansing system is important to maintain your health.

When starting your Isogenix body cleansing system, you’ll want to begin with your colon. The colon, unfortunately, does not always fully eliminate the waste. This can cause problems with the digestive system such as diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, heartburn, gas, and even bad breath. If the colon becomes clogged, you may feel these symptoms, as well as feeling a lack of energy and possibly headaches. These toxins come from the air you breathe, as well as the foods you eat. Processed foods and those with artificial flavors, as well as those grown with the assistance of pesticides and fertilizers can also leave behind toxins in your body.

Your isagenix body cleansing system should also include the cleansing of other organs, such as your kidneys and liver. However, one of the most important organs in your body is often left out of the body cleansing system that most people set up for themselves. This organ is the skin. The skin is the body’s first defense against germs and bacteria. The skin also eliminates toxin waste through the sweat glands. If your skin is not fully functioning, it can cause health problems, as well. To cleanse your skin, you should be eating foods rich in antioxidants, as well as using cleansing products that contain antioxidants.

The most important thing that you can do when setting up a body cleansing program for yourself is to manage your diet to help your body to properly function in between Isagenics cleansings. Drinking plenty of water, eating healthy foods and those that are low in both fat and additives, as well as eating foods high in antioxidants will help you to keep your body functioning at top level. A body cleansing system will help you to not only feel healthier, but look healthier.

 

An Insight Into PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

I was cruising the "net" just recently, when I came across "PCOS". I had never heard of this but I found it very interesting because for years I have suffered with blood sugar problems. So as soon as I come across an article that relates to blood sugar, I research it further. This is very interesting because so many women suffer with this condition. And, like many blood sugar conditions, it also can go undiagnosed.


What you’re about to read will give you a greater understanding of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and how to reverse its underlying condition, Insulin Resistance. This information is not about fad diets, magic pills or fantasy claims to transform the way you look and feel overnight. It is about accurate scientific information that can help you to effectively change the way your body responds to food and help reverse your PCOS.


INSULIN RESISTANCE IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF PCOS http://syndromex.stanford.edu/InsulinResistance.htm The above is a link to more detailed information from the stanford.edu website. Are you one of the millions of women with PCOS who have failed to reverse the symptoms of this condition no matter what you’ve tried? It may not be due to lack of willpower. Instead, you could be Insulin Resistant, the root cause of PCOS.


Scientists at the National Institutes of Health, Stanford University and other research centers have clearly identified the existence and effects of Insulin Resistance, a biochemical condition that causes excessive weight gain and PCOS, which is also known as polycystic ovaries. If you are among the 65% of the overweight population with Insulin Resistance, your ability to reverse your PCOS and lose weight may not have been within your control - until now.


This breakthrough in understanding the body’s biochemistry remains relatively unknown, even though Insulin Resistance has reached epidemic proportions. Your doctor may not have explained the crucial link between Insulin Resistance and PCOS. You need to understand this link in order to reverse your condition.


The Insulite PCOS System is the first scientifically-designed method that restores your body’s ability to conquer PCOS by reversing Insulin Resistance. You can also read more here: http://www.pcosupport.org/living/nutrition/insulinre.php PCOS AND INSULIN RESISTANCE PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is a hormonal imbalance linked to the way the body processes insulin after it has been produced by the pancreas to regulate blood sugar (glucose).


The underlying cause of PCOS, Insulin Resistance, has many factors that contribute to its presence in the body. In essence, our environment and lifestyles have evolved too rapidly for our bodies to keep pace. We are still genetically “wired” to thrive on the entrenched habits of our ancestors, who consumed different, nutrient-rich foods, a diet low in carbohydrates and who sustained greater levels of movement and exercise. Some people may also have a genetic predisposition to Insulin Resistance, while others develop the condition through high stress and unhealthy lifestyles. Also check Dr. Barry Sears Books on Hormonal Balance. INSULIN RESISTANCE NEGATIVELY AFFECTS GLUCOSE AND INSULIN LEVELS SYMPTOMS OF PCOS Doctors very often misdiagnose PCOS. This became an issue of critical concern after a study in 2000 found that women suffering from PCOS have a higher risk of coronary heart disease.


Researchers found a link between PCOS and other metabolic conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure and high levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol, all of which are risk factors for coronary heart disease.


Studies have also shown an increased link between PCOS and atherosclerosis, which occurs when fatty deposits called plague cling to the interior walls of the arteries, leading to blockages that can cause heart attacks or stroke. Not only do PCOS sufferers have higher rates of plaque buildup but those over 45 have thicker deposits of plaque.


Another report indicated that up to 40% of women with PCOS have either impaired glucose tolerance or Type II Diabetes by the age of 40. Many conditions can be managed by ourselves. It is well worth it to check the information available on the internet.

An Introduction to Gambling Treatments

Gambling is a form of entertainment for many people, but in some cases gambling can become an addiction leading to financial problems, relationship stress, and even attempted suicide. It is estimated that 6 percent of north america's population will have a gambling problem sometime in there life. Gambling addiction is a serious problem. Pathological addictions to gambling are more common in men then women or specific ethnic groups. Gambling can create a rush when you lose and win, and sometimes the user is unable to control their impulses to gamble. This is when it becomes a problem. There are different degrees of gambling addiction. All of which are treated differently, depending on the specific needs of the addict.


Signs of gambling addictions include, but are not limited to: Constantly thinking/talking about and, or, preparing for gambling sessions, gambling during work or when you are expected at home, getting into debt from gambling and lying to borrow money. Using illegal means to finance gambling and neglecting family or other personal responsibilities. Feeling a need to gamble to relieve stress and or 'escape reality'. Of course, there are also many more signs that could point towards a problem gamble, though gambling addiction is usually blatently obvious.


Treatment programs can range, and are specifically designed according to the addicts needs. Usually the most sucessful therapies combine both professional counselling and user support groups. Medication can be used to combat mood swings, depression and anxiety that addict' may experience during withdrawl. Pyscho and cognitive behaviour therapy is also used, to replace the negative effects of gambling with positive ones, in turn promoting a healthy and positive attitude towards gambling. Group therapy is also good place for user support and feed back.



 

 

Anabolic Steroid


Anabolic steroid is natural or synthetic endocrine, which regulates the body functions. Anabolic Steroid is also called ‘Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid.’ Anabolic steroid helps to build muscles and body mass.

Anabolic steroid was discovered in 1930. Since then, anabolic steroid drugs have been used for several medical purposes comprising bone growth stimulation, appetency, puberty, and muscle development. The most far-flung use of anabolic steroid is for chronic wasting conditions including AIDS and cancer.

Presently, anabolic steroid drugs are one of the most controversial drugs. These drugs are often used as performance & stamina enhancing drugs. There are a number of side effects and serious consequences linked with the abuse and overuse of anabolic steroid drugs. Some of the anabolic steroid side effects include giddiness, early hair loss, mood swings (anger, depression and aggression), delusion, feelings of fear and suspicion, sleeping problems, vomiting and nausea, trembling, joints pain, yellow fever, high blood pressure, problems in urinary system, heart problems, stroke, liver damage and many others.

The anabolic steroid drugs affect males and females in different ways. The major “anabolic steroid side effects” in males include increased breast or nipple size, enlarged prostate gland, powerlessness and reduced sperm count. The major “anabolic steroid side effects” in females include excessive hair growth on body and face, decreased breast size, deepened voice and menstrual problems.

These anabolic steroid side effects have made the drugs category, which is usable only by prescription, in order to deal the conditions, which occurs when human body produces lesser testosterone quantities such as delayed puberty and impotence. According to a 1988 US federal law, the use and distribution of anabolic steroid drugs is illegal. These drugs were put under the category of controlled substances in 1991.

The anabolic steroid drugs have an anticoagulant effect. Used with extreme care in combination with other drugs, these drugs have the same effect, including warfarin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and aspirin. Simultaneous use of anabolic steroid drugs and corticosteroids may increase the risk of foot and ankle swelling. The combination is very likely to cause acne. The anabolic steroid drugs may also help lowering blood glucose levels. These drugs should be used with extreme care in patients taking insulin or other antidiabetic drugs.
