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.

By Steve Esquire

Panasonic provides a full line of massage chairs. There are two basic levels of massage chairs offered by Panasonic. On the high end of the line, they offer the Real Pro Ultra line. This consists of their model numbers EP-30003 to EP-30007. They also offer on the entry level side the new Urban Collection. This consists of a variety of more contemporary style massage chairs. These two lines are offered by Panasonic.

Panasonic has now redesigned its line to be much more contemporary and stylish. These recliners have much bolder lines then their predecessors and feature sloping armrest. You may get a version with a built-in leg rest or with a separate leg ottoman. The new urban collection also includes the Swede Atsu massage technique.

The model that comes with the separate leg ottoman is the Panasonic EP 1082. The leg ottoman comes equipped with a system of eight airbags. You get quite a variety of massage therapies included in the EP 1082. There is also a new massage technique integrated into this recliner called the chiropractic style massage. This is to help with more thorough muscle relaxation.

The model in the urban collection that has a built-in leg rest is the EP 1285. The EP 1285 comes with the same feature set as the EP 1082 but has a built-in leg rest. The EP-1285 comes with more airbags in the leg rest. There are a total of 14 airbags to provide more sufficient coverage when providing massage therapy to your legs.

The new urban collection by Panasonic includes some of their more effective technology. They include their floating massage head that provides a realistic feeling of a hand massage. They also provide technology to identify your individual acupoints for the acupressure massage.

Panasonic has designed a separate leg ottoman for the EP 1082. This gives you the versatility to use it for massage or not. The simple design incorporates a flip mechanism to obtain a massage. The eight airbags provide for a kneading of the calf and shin muscles.

Panasonic has also introduced their new high-end line called the Real Pro Ultra. The Real Pro Ultra contains many new advanced features over the real Pro elite line. The models of the Real Pro Ultra start with EP 30003 and end with EP 30007. Each model has slightly different features then the next but are all manufactured on the same platform.

The Real Pro Ultra line starts with model EP 30003. This massage chair recliner has the quad style roller mechanism included. Panasonic has designed this roller system to compensate for the curve of the spine. It is also able to perform a grasping motion for relieving sore muscles.

The Real Pro Ultra line comes with three the body scan technology. The roller mechanism will scan up and down your back. It then creates a three-dimensional virtual map of your back. It locates the top of your shoulders and will adjust the program to follow the curve of your spine. This provides a much more tailored massage.

As you move up in the Real Pro Ultra massage chair line to the EP 30004, it now includes upper body stretching and an arm massage. The armrests contained a top which can be opened. The arm can be inserted inside in the air compression system activated. This provides for soothing relief of tired wrists and arms. There is also an upper body stretching system utilizing the arm airbags.

The Real Pro Ultra line also consists of models 30005, 30006 and 30007. These models come with a more penetrating roller mechanism called ultra deep. The shoulder and hip airbags for the EP -- 30005 have been removed compared to the 30006 and 30007. The only difference between the EP 30006 and the EP 30007 is that the 30007 is made in Japan. This is the lineup for Panasonic's high in massage chair line the Real Pro Ultra.

A good massage can do wonder for unbinding pain and stress. Massage is a relaxation treatment which includes a variety of gliding, kneading, smooth strokes and other movements on the exterior layer of the muscles, but a therapeutic massage is not always expedient and available. While it is still good to have a massage from a skilled therapist, but a service from a professional masseur can be very costly and ranging over $60-$130 depending on the level of the spa. This expense is not budget friendly for a middle-class person. Although an alternative electronic product is available that can provide some of the profit of human touch and we call it massage chair, and all of these chairs in market are not up to the mark. But most eligible massage chair for America’s market position is kept by Panasonic massage chair because of its few unique features and first of its feature is the movable armrests because it provides an efficient massage of to the body parts like lags arms and hips, even when the chair is totally reclined. Your hips, thighs, shoulders and feet are surely more relaxed after this massage session, but the most popular feature is heat massage and because of this massage technique one can enjoy the worm muscle relaxing massage and it also heals injuries by releasing pleasant warmth in all your body, with the help of the heated heads. This technique also improves your blood circulation, important especially if you suffer from high blood pressure.
