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.

Fresh Lobster is a Healthy Treat for All

By Shannon Linnen

Finding a protein that's good for you and tastes great can be hard. Everyone wants to diet, but no one wants to give up on good taste to do it. Red meat has been out for years, and many are cutting meat from their diets all together. Some have turned to fish, but with mercury level's rising, that may not be safe, especially if you're trying to have children. So where is a dieter to turn for a healthy protein alternative? Fresh lobster is a great option.

You may think of lobster as a special, high in fat, bad for you food, but in fact the opposite is true. Lobster tastes so good it feels like it must be bad for you, but three and a half ounces of the meat has only 90 calories, making it lower in calories than even chicken! And it's a great source of protein, just like the other, higher in calorie meats. So by indulging in lobster, you're actually doing something good for yourself, and you don't have to feel guilty about including fresh lobster in a healthy meal.

You may be thinking to yourself that lobster must be unhealthy, because that's what you've heard and thought for years, but it's simply not true. What is true is that most of the ways in which lobster has been prepared and enjoyed have been unhealthy, masking the fact that the fresh lobster meat itself is quite healthy. Of course, a creamy and rich lobster bisque isn't good for you, and dipping any meat in butter wouldn't make for a healthy meal, but on it's own, because it is steamed in preparation, lobster is better for you than other proteins.

Lobster is not only a low calorie food, it's also good for your heart health. Like many other crustaceans and types of fish, lobster is high in heart healthy omega three fatty acids. These fatty acids help to promote the healthy of your heart, and are recommended by doctors. Many other food producers are even adding them to their products like milk! Fresh lobster is a great way for you to get the benefits of omega three's in a natural way. it's also a great source of protein to keep your energy up on long days.

How can you enjoy fresh lobster in a healthy way? Lobster makes a great addition to a salad, in chunks, it's rich taste is a wonderful way to use less dressing and add a kick to what you're eating. You can also try a few pieces on a slice of quality bread, like rye or pumpernickel, to mix the strong flavors. For dinner, try some whole wheat pasta dressed with a little oil and some lobster meat. It's sure to be an instant family favorite.

Want to spice up dinner tonight? Try some healthy fresh lobster? It's a great way to eat something that's good for you, and tastes delicious. So go enjoy!

Don't skip courses ith attendance policies hich are
not necssary. Treatment for hemochromatosis can reverse
most of the symptoms and prevent damage to the organs. If you make
a decision to perform in phlebotomy, then holding a Phlebotomy certification will give you an edge
and absolutely distinguish you from some others.

I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I have been browsing on-line more than three hours as of late,
but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It is pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all
webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you did,
the web can be a lot more useful than ever before.

News and sports sites in addition have a percentage of their webpage space dedicated for streaming advertisement video clips.
Online users are taken care of to a total

Many educative organizations provide free streaming videos involving lectures, presentations, and demos.

Other agencies even provide videos regarding documentaries.
