When I told my father that I would need to get senior home care in Queens for him, he was against it. He didn’t want anyone else but me taking care of him, but I couldn’t do that, because I was at work for most of the day. I couldn’t quit my job, because then I wouldn’t have any income, and then we would both be out on the street. After a long talk, we agreed that home care was the best option.
I heard some good things about a local home care company from one of my coworkers who has it for their grandfather. I called the company, and we were able to make arrangements for my father. I made my father make a promise that he would be as agreeable to the home care assistant as possible, and wouldn’t do anything to make their job more difficult than it probably already has to be.

The following tips may help you, because the actions and foods they suggest, contrary to many alternative views of cancer prevention. They are supported by a strong research, – from the lab, with animals, and in the long-term human studies. Thus, each of these tips has a strong scientific basis, unlike the assertions made by their intention to sell their products to you and ask for opinions.
Start one of these suggestions will definitely lower the risk of breast cancer. Use them all the better.
- Be more active
A healthy lifestyle by finding people who exercise or work on a regular basis is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
For breast health I walk every day for 30-45 minutes, take a weekly yoga class, and doing tai chi twice a week.
- Eat more unrefined seed foods
All seeds provide phytoestrogens. Women who eat the most phytoestrogenic four times more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than those who ate the least. Grains such as wheat, rice, maize, millet, quinoa is a food and raw seeds. Legumes such as lentils, black beans, peas, and beans are seed on its uncooked foods. Including beans, walnuts, almonds, and pecans. And edible seeds such as sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin.
Fruits and vegetables are eaten directly with their seeds – such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, summer squash, tomatoes, and cucumbers – count the grains as refined foods. Even seeds used as spice flavor, such as cumin, coriander, caraway, anise, and dill seeds.
For breast health, I have replaced all refined carbohydrates – including white rice and white / unbleached flour products such as pasta, bread, cookies, crackers, pretzels, donuts, and cakes – with whole-grain products.
- Reduce the meal with vegetable oil; improve animal fat, especially from dairy products
If you are dubious about eating more animal fat and dairy products to reduce the risk of breast cancer, consider. 1gram(about one tea spoon) of vegetable oil consumed per day, the risk of breast cancer increased by 70%. Conversely, forevery10grams of fat from meat and dairy products in the daily diet, the risk of breast cancer decreased by55%. For breast health I use yogurt, cheese, milk, butter, and olive oil daily, and eat meat.
- Eat less tofu and soy beverage; eats more miso and tamari.
The active ingredient in soy – isoflavone – when given to breast cancer cells in petri dishes causes them to grow rapidly. (Extracts of dong quai and licorice have a similar effect.)
Miso and tamari – fermented soy foods – are the exceptions. Both are very prevention of cancer, no matter when you start eating them. Animal studies have found both miso and tamari highly effective in preventing cancer, and the more you eat, the more you reduce the risk of cancer.
- Eat foods rich in antioxidants; but avoid supplements of vitamins C and E
A diet that contains plenty of food rich in antioxidants definitely lowers breast cancer risk. But supplements seem to do the opposite. One new “chemotherapy” links a deadly form of zinc for ascorbic acid molecule; when the cancer consuming ascorbic acid, zinc is set free to kill cancer cells.
For breast health I eat 5-7 servings of food a red / orange, dark green and sunny every day.
These five tips are easy, much will increase your chances of living to be a wise old woman with healthy breast.
Who would not enjoy coming to the house, kicking off their shoes, and spent the rest of the day barefoot? Especially here in the summer, cooling the feet and go barefoot quite enjoyable. But if barefoot? Like most such questions, the answer is a definite “maybe”
First of all, if you have a history of diabetes, you should not go barefoot. Advanced diabetes can cause progressive numbness legs, called peripheral neuropathy. Decreased sensation may prevent you from feeling something that you tread, such as nails, wood or glass splinters. Often this will lead to infection and can develop to put a foot at risk of amputation. People with diabetes should always protect their feet with shoes, house shoes, or sandals anti-slip.
If you do not have diabetes, there is some leeway again with this issue. The answer depends more on the type of floor you walk on. For example, a house with soft flooring, plush carpeting very good to walk on barefoot. Carpets will absorb the shock of your feet and provide a cushion for a long time standing.
However, at least have a thick carpet throughout the house. In fact, it is a well established fact that most families spend the most time in the kitchen. It is no coincidence that many meetings in the house ends gathered in the kitchen. With a few exceptions the kitchen is not carpeted.
So what if we walk on the tile floor? When we are standing or walking on a hard surface, there are two types of forces involved. One is the impact strength of your feet on the ground. There is then an equal and opposite force, known as the “land of the reactive force” sent from the ground back to your legs. For that reason, measures that are not covered in, unforgiving hard floor would double the power in your legs. Running will increase the power of the fourfold.
Shock absorption can be effective in reducing these forces. We usually call it “footwear.” A rubber soles, for example, will absorb some of the shock of foot impact on the ground as well as a portion of the reactive force.
Back to “kick” your shoes when you get home. You generally okay to do it, as long as you are in tile or wood surface that is hard, protecting your feet with some good, cushioned footwear. That is, of course, unless you have diabetes or other conditions that have reduced sensitivity in your feet. In this case, better to be safe with shoes or sandals.
Hair is the habit of pulling the bad things that can provide headaches for many people especially cause hair loss. We speak about the hair disorder known as trichotillosis and observed in approximately 2% of the population states of America. However, the number of people affected by this disorder may be higher because many people are not aware of these problems or do not want to discuss it with other people.
Trichotillosa (also known as trichotillomania) is a medical condition in which people tend to pulling or repeal your hair regularly and lasts longer. Behavior such as this, can be intentional and have different causes including obsessive compulsive disorder, mental illness and many other psychological conditions. Doctors noted that typically a genetic condition that is usually triggered by infectious depression, stress or excessive anxiety. And despite the fact that many people are affected by it, there is not much information about this issue and not as extensively studied as other psychological disorders.
The signs trichotillosis
Pulling hair under trichotillosis can be done either by intentional or expedient for giving gratuities to the person affected. The most obvious sign of this disorder is appealing his own hair and bald spots that were not typical for natural hair loss. In most cases people are exposed to pulling on the head in one or a set of specific points, but it was observed that some patients repeal and pulling their eyelashes, eyebrows and pubic hair even under the same conditions. Repeal and pulling hair usually begins in high stress environments or when a person experiences anxiety. Are under stress, no trichotillosis usually not manifested.
Diagnosis, action, and treatment
As said before, it is quite difficult to diagnose this condition in many patients without direct observation because the affected person usually does not claim to have such a habit. In addition, many people who repeal their hair forcibly without realizing it, so it’s really difficult to make a diagnosis without the aid of additional witnesses. If not, dermatologists and trichologists analyze the pattern of hair loss and the search for other factors that could cause such an effect.
Selecting the right treatment depends on the patient’s age and actual condition. In children, the disorder is usually ignored because of depleted with age. In adolescents and young adults of this disorder become very sensitive because it may trigger an emotional response. In older adults it is usually caused by excessive stress, so instead of trying to use the medicine to stop hair loss, it is advisable to evaluate your stress first.
Both medicine and psychological therapy used to treat the trichotillosis. Successful treatment depends on the severity of the condition and the patient’s willingness to get rid of the disorder. There is no point in using other hair loss remedy when dealing with trichotillosis because it provides a mechanical failure outside rather than nutrient or hormonal imbalances inside.
