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.

A Review of Winsor Pilates

By Steve Estes

If you haven't heard of Winsor Pilates before it is one of the best fitness programs around and has an excellent reputation with the worlds top flight exercise trainers. I doubt there will this big of a breakthrough in the world of offline AND online health systems for quite some time.

Many of the top Hollywood and business luminaries are seen exercising and sweating to Winsor Pilates routines in the posh health clubs of the country. There has developed a whole cottage industry revolving around this popular form of exercise. You have available at your finger tips such products as Winsor Pilates DVDS, books, videos, and even internet home study courses.

Just like all forms of popular exercise, Winsor Pilates has those who love it and those who don't. Although I haven't found many critics, Take a look at some selected features and try to tell id this system is the right one for you.

It shouldn't be hard to find a large number of Pilates bloggers giving out their opinions on such things as Pilates machines like the Pilates Reformer or the Pilates Power Gym. Almost evey one that you will read speaks glowingly about using this equipment. I was hard pressed to find many negative reviews.

Pilates really works the core of your body while improving your posture and helping tone your muscles. Some have reported improved digestion as well because of the way this system is designed.

Although most of these positive reviews focus on your total body development, they specifically mention how well they improve your thighs, butt and back. Obviously they include how well it tones your abs as well. Ive heard people mention that going through this workout helps them center their mind, body, and spirit, so you might look for those benefits.

I had a hard time finding any negative reviews of Winsor Pilates. There just doesn't seem to much much bad to say about it. If there was anything it was that the home equipment can run into some money. But that said, those that DID buy it were extremely satisfird with their purchases.

Also some of the lose weight fast crowd didn't like the fact that you have to actually put in time and effort in order to lose any pounds off your middle. Well, guess what? This is the safest way of doing it. I guess some folks would rather just take some potentially dangerous pill rather than actually work for their progress, Winsor Pilates is just not for them anyway.
