Whether your employees enjoy work or treat it as an afterthought, one thing is clear: They’re spending lots of time interacting and socializing with each other. But spending time together doesn’t always mean sharing intimate details about their lives – especially when it comes to health, because ...
Stop ignoring your vagina. It could be trying to tell you something important.
If you've ever experienced thin, milky vaginal discharge that may also have a strong, fishy odor, you may have had bacterial vaginosis (BV). It's the most common vaginal infection in women of childbearing age.
If you're a woman in midlife and find yourself tossing and turning, waking up multiple times each night (that is, if you're lucky enough to have fallen asleep in the first place), there's a likely reason: hormones.
Aging has many perks, and if we’re doing it right, we’re reaping its many benefits. We are wiser. We’ve gained experience and confidence; we care less about what others think and more about what’s important, like enjoying life and living each and every day to its fullest.
While we feel more comfortable with the skin we're in, changes due to aging are inevitable, so it is important to understand your skin, and tailor your skin care routine to its current needs. The products you loved in your 20's and 30's may not meet the needs of your skin today. “With each decade, there’s a more significant loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, and our repair mechanisms to fight off the damage get weaker,” explains Tanya Kormeili, M.D. a board-certified dermatologist in Santa Monica, California.
If you’re one of the lucky ones living on a secluded island, where it’s quiet, calm, and always perfect, OR you never have worry about your health, money, job or, um life… you probably don’t have a lot of stress.
But in case you haven’t noticed – and we’re betting you have – stress is a reality of everyday life.
It’s time for a reality check: You may already be doing all the things it takes to be healthy, but are you really as healthy as you can be?
When you stop to consider that half of all American adults have one or more chronic health conditions, according to the Center for Disease Control, it’s easy to see why there’s almost always room for improvement.
“Being aware of your habits – and rethinking those habits – can help you curb the worst of your behaviors,” explains Susan Blum, MD., assistant clinical professor of preventive medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai in New York City, and author of The Immune System Recovery Plan. Sometimes, it’s those small — yet consistent — changes that have the biggest bang for your buck.
The most common form of diabetes, Type 2 (once called adult-onset or non-insulin-dependent diabetes), affects 90 to 95 percent of the 26 million Americans with diabetes. But a diabetes diagnosis isn’t inevitable, according to Gayl J. Canfield, Director of Nutrition Research at Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami, Fla. It comes down to living a healthy lifestyle and doing all the things you already know you should do: keep your blood glucose (blood sugar) under control, eat healthy, exercise and monitor your blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
Want to make 2017 better than 2016?
Yeah, I thought so. This past year has been so tough on so many fronts. I dare not touch on them specifically—I like to stay out of controversy's way—but I have no doubt that you'll agree.
Americans gulp down 1 billion-plus glasses of tap water each day, so most of us likely know: All tap water is not created equal (as the residents of Toledo, Ohio have sadly seen).
Some mouthfuls taste mountain-spring fresh; others are all-out unsavory.
Some things seem to be a given when it comes to your health: fruit and vegetables are linked to healthy aging; a good night's sleep goes a long way to making you happy and productive and calcium is key for healthy bones.
But while there's no arguing with the first two, there's been quite a bit of confusion lately when it comes to calcium. Are calcium supplements dangerous to the heart? Are we getting enough calcium — or too much? And is dairy the best source?
