Women and Heart Disease
Tuesday, 01 February 2011 00:00

hearthealthy This year The American Heart Association presents "Go Red for Women" a movement providing information to women about cardiovascular disease.

Traditionally, we think about men being the primary victims of heart disease, but each year, it claims the lives of hundreds of thousands of women. The older you are, the more likely it is that you will get heart disease. But healthy living at any age is the foundation for disease-free later years. 

While some people are genetically predisposed to heart disease; high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, tobacco use and second hand smoke are associated risk factors for this condition which can be reduced or controlled. No matter what your age, there are ways that you can significantly reduce your risk for heart disease.

Besides the added stress those extra pounds put on our joints, if you're a joint pain sufferer, a poor diet can indirectly have a negative effect on your joints. Fortunately, this is not a situation that is without hope.

If you're presently suffering with acute or chronic joint pain, you can ease your pain by first cleaning up your diet and adding healthy foods to your daily meal plan. Even if you only eat a small salad with every meal, it will make a positive impact on your overall health and can go a long way in improving the way you feel.

Stretching May Reduce Back Pain
Monday, 10 January 2011 00:00


Stretch out your muscles each and everyday to get them ready for action and reduce back pain.

We've all been there. You go to lift something and feel a pain halfway between the starting point and the destination. Or you were running around hitting a tennis ball, shooting buckets, tossing around a football, or anything you might not do very often and your back goes out.

We have many muscles that make up our body, and some of those muscles support the spinal column in your back. Having strong muscles in your back as well as your abdomen will work wonders to help ward off back pain. But, having flexible muscles in your back is just as important as having strong muscles.
