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.

Your Personal Hair and Skin Products Made Easy

By Art Gib

Many factors contribute to how your skin ages. Natural aging and outside environmental factors all have a hand in how your skin ages. There are products that can help you keep track of your skin's health?

You can still go to your dermatologist for problems, but most of us don't have severe enough difficulties to warrant a trip to the doctor. You just want your hair and skin to glow, be healthy and shiny, and not have gone through hours worth of regimens to get it.

When you're young, your skin is still fresh and new and bounces back because the collagen is replenished. Natural rejuvenation wanes as your body becomes older. Natural genetic factors and environmental factors all contribute to your skin's aging process.

They know their products, but they don't know you. Unless you have a particular person that has attended to your needs for many years, but that doesn't happen as often as you want. They may go to another store and start touting other products that don't work for you. Or they may move away. Or you may move away and have to start all over.

Back to not having to go to a store or a beauty shop. The makers of all these wonderful products are coming out with handy online surveys that ask you particular questions about your hair and skin type, the problems you experience, and the kind of climate you live in.

There are several tools that are available for clinicians and cosmetic consultants, such as Toshiba's Portable Skin and Hair Analyzer, or personal products like Overstock's offering of a skin analyzer tool, GlowVista's Skin Analyzer Machine, and the more advanced sleek and practical product NuSkin's ProDerm.

With such handy tools available at your fingertips, taking care of your skin has become more personalized and easier to control and slow the aging process despite your genetic factors or environmental exposures.

Professional Workout Programs That Can Help You Shed Pounds

By Damyan Lagina

Starting from the premise that one needs comprehensive guidance and step by step directions to come up with a workout exercise program could be detrimental to one's achievement of fitness. Yes, personalized training is an option but it surely doesn't represent the only one. There are plenty of tips available online that can help one improve any workout exercise he/she chooses.

Let's take walking, for instance as a workout exercise, you may consider some suggestions to improve the impact the training has on the health condition. Thus, keep the stride short and the abdominal muscles tight and preferably pulled in. In order to save energy or recover it, try to alternate brisk and slow walking intervals. Plus, by bending the elbows, the arms will swing more rapidly which will have a positive impact on the speed of the legs too.

Then, you can improve any workout exercise by considering changing the fitness training routine every other month in order to prevent the creation of a workout plateau that doesn't allow the body to progress any further. In addition, when you alternate core and strength training with stretching and cardio exercises the full body benefits will be considerably higher.

In case you are curious about the intensity of a workout exercise, you can evaluate that by a talk test, a rating of perceived exertion or the heart rate analysis. Each of these methods can be used in a professional gym or with a bit of guided assistance. Never ignore the importance of stretching since each workout exercise will be a lot more efficient when you warm the muscles up making them looser and ready for performance.

The use of workout machines such as elliptical trainers may affect the quality of the workout exercise, which will result in a lower caloric consume for instance. Such situations are explained by a deficient use of the machine and a too heavy leaning against the handrails which reduces the amount of effort and thus the body stimulation.

The importance of diet for a good workout exercise routine should be our final word of advice here. You should eat quality food, full of nutrients that are burned as energy and don't get stored in the form of fat deposits. Read some professional informative materials too, so as to understand which foods are good and which are bad for a physical training routine or for a weight loss program.

Extreme Results with P90X

By Austin Mcgonigle

This topic came to me this evening, while I was talking with a friend of mine. He was telling me how he can't get into working out and exercising, because he never "notices" the results in the mirror. Now people, you might be under the illusion that getting results is all about how much weight you can lift, or how many reps you can do, P90Xers how many pull ups/ push ups you can knock out, but the truth is, that's a small part of it. The ONLY way to get results is to set up some kind of diet plan. P90x and Tony Horton set up a nutrition plan, to go along with the videos. Now I'm not saying that in order to get results you have to follow the P90X nutrition guide, but you will have to put some kind of plan into action.

You can exercise all you want, and lift all you want, but if you're not doing some kind of nutrition you're not going to get true visible results***RIPPED ABS!, don't get me wrong you'll get in shape, but you're not going to have the amazing definition. When I started P90X I went a little far, I completely cut out soft drinks, processed foods (for the most part), sugars, fast food, and anything else I thought was junk. Now I know that's not realistic for everyone, but everyone can make little changes to get them on the path. So I thought I would lay out what I eat, not saying what I eat is right, but it is what works for me.

Ohhh yea.. One more important thing, and this is probably one of the most important keys to a successful nutrition planare you ready????? Pay attention hereEAT BREAKFAST!!!! I'm sure a lot of people think they're doing themselves a favor by not eating breakfast, or just don't have timewell, the truth is you're probably sending your body into fat storage mode. Ideally you should stop eating 3-4 hours before you go to sleep, now assuming you do that, and most people get at least 6 hours of sleep, and you miss breakfast and eat lunch at 12:00, went to sleep at 10 and stopped eating at 7, that's 17 hours you went with out eating. That sends you body into starvation mode, slows your metabolic rate, and you body becomes very picky about the way it burns calories, and ends up storing more fat. The purpose of that huge run on sentence was to stress the importance of eating breakfast, so eat something in the mornings!!!

For me breakfast doesn't change much, the only thing that really changes are the days I that I eat certain things on, it always pretty much consists of: Turkey sausage, some kind of fruit, slice of wheat toast, and a glass of juice **the rest of the day it's nothing but water** Protein shake and fruit 8ox Oatmeal, fruit, and juice 3 egg whites with chopped onions/mushrooms/ham, slice wheat toast, and a glass juice. And that pretty much takes care of breakfast, those for things on a repeating cycle.boring I knowbut as I said before it's what works for me, and that's what's important. Sometime after breakfast but before lunch I'll have a snack, now by snack I don't mean run out to the gas station and load up on a 44oz soda, and hoho's, snack's are fruit, nuts, turkey jerky, or a protein bar/shake.

Sadly to say lunch never changes for me, I'll have a can of all white albacore tuna, I don't mix it mayo and pickles and all that, I just eat the tuna right out of the can, sometimes I'll put a little balsamic vinegar on it, and have a salad. If I can't get home, and have to eat lunch out, I'll normally find a deli, have a half of some kind of sandwich on wheat, along with a salad.

Dinner is the most important meal of the day, by this time of the day I'm really looking for a good meal, that is going to last me till morning, so I really try to do something good for dinner. For example I would do a grilled chicken breast, maybe through some vegies on the grill with it and some wild rice. Something along those lines would be a good dinner that would keep me happy till morning. I cut a lot of red meat out of my diet now, so it's mostly tuna, pork, chicken. Now I'm not saying red meat is bad, it was just a personal decision, and I still love a great steak, just not as many as I used to love. Do whatever works for you, like I said this is what works for me, the important thing is to put some kind of plan into action, and follow through..GOODLUCK and STICK WITH IT!!!!!
