Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

The Best Review Of Arm Exercises For Women

By Katherine Crawford M.S.

Are you looking for the best arm exercises for women? Well, you are in for a roller coaster ride!

You see, there are so many different view points out there as to which exercises are best, that the general public is stuck in a perpetual state of analysis paralysis.

Most women do not have the educational resources to figure out what is fact and fiction. It can be a confusing world, especially with all the quacks out there. But I have already gone through this

I have committed to undertaking the most massive review ever of every single arm exercise I can find. It will be gruesome, but I'm willing to do it in the name of all those souls searching for sexy arm stardom. So here is today's review of wrist curls:

1. Summary: Wrist curls are great for your forearms, but not great for getting rid of your jiggly arm flab. This exercise is simply way too specialized and focused on the upper forearm muscle.

2. Technical overview: Grab a barbell, sit on a bench and rest your wrists on your knees. Keep your abs tight and raise said barbell. Then lower it in a controlled fashion.

3. Most common errors: Not going all the way up and all the way down with the barbell which makes the exercise more ineffective. And grabbing the barbell with a vice-like grip which can be very painful!

4. Conclusion: You should not be doing this exercise unless you have a special condition that requires strong wrists and/or forearms. It does not tone your upper arm area. And you need to tone your upper arm area if you want to get rid of the jiggle. Period.

So what are the best upper arm exercises for women? Well, you are going to have to read my other reviews to get the big picture here. And the more you learn, the better off you'll be!
