Health issues in Old Men

Getting older has its own disadvantages. With age, health issues creep in and begin to affect the day-to-day routine of the elderly. It is observed that the organs of the body work efficiently till the age of 60. However, as the age progresses further, bodily functions slowly decline, and visits to the doctor become inevitable.

Health Concerns in the Elderly

Elderly people are susceptible to a wide range of health problems. In older people, the numerous biological processes work below their optimum level. So, following are the elderly health issues observed after the age of 65.

Vision Problems
With age, one may notice decline in eye function. Aging can bring undesirable changes in the eyesight. Vision problems is one of the most common elderly health issues that require urgent medical treatment to prevent further deterioration of the eye. Minor eyesight problems are often corrected by wearing spectacles. Read more on eye problems. The most common age related eye disorder is given below:

Cataracts: Also referred as clouded vision, cataracts affects the lens of the eye, thus leading to impaired vision. Cataracts is a condition in which the part of eye lens gets covered with a white film, making the lens opaque. As we all know, the lens of the eye is a transparent elastic structure that allows light to enter through it. This lights falls on the retina, that is exactly behind the lens. The light signal thus received by the retina, helps to produce clear images, which is interpreted as vision. However, as the lens becomes opaque due to formation of white film, the passage of light is obstructed, making it difficult for the person to view things clearly.

Cataracts is a progressive condition that eventually affects the entire lens. Disturbances in vision are noticed when the eye lens affects significant area of the lens. Blurred vision and sensitivity to light are some of the most common symptoms of cataracts. Fortunately cataracts can be safely cured using a surgery.

Hearing Loss
As a person ages, his ability to hear and discriminate sound diminishes. It is naturally for elderly people to be upset and anxious, as it interferes with normal communication. ‘Hard of hearing’ or partial deafness are the common complaints among the elderly. However, with the advancement in science and technology, a wide range of hearing aids are available today, to treat age related hearing loss effectively. Programmable hearing aids are the latest devices that can make understanding people easier. Keep in mind, that this is one of the health problems for seniors and elderly, that has to be addressed early to avoid complete hearing loss. Read more on hearing loss.

Osteoporosis
With increase in age, a significant decrease in bone mass or density is observed. Loss in bone density that makes the bones brittle and weak is referred as osteoporosis. It is rightly said that elderly have a higher chance of developing bone fractures. A minor fall or even coughing can put elderly in the risk zone of bone fractures. Although more common in women over 65, men too can develop osteoporosis at an early age due to inadequate calcium intake.

Osteoarthritis
Wear and tear of joints with age, often manifests in the form of osteoarthritis. As we all know a joint is a place where two bones meet. In other words, the joint is a connecting point between two bones. The ends of the bones are covered with a tissue, known as cartilage. This covering of the end points of the bones prevent friction, that may occur during joint movement. However, over time the cartilage wear away. As the layer of cartilage depletes, the bones rub against each other, causing inflammation and pain in the joints. Joint problems such as morning stiffness in the elderly are warning signs of osteoarthritis. In this condition, the joints are less flexible and cause pain during normal movement. Read more on joint pain.

One can always slow down the progression of these elderly health issues, by leading a healthy lifestyle. Habits like smoking can lead to early manifestation of cataracts. Calcium deficiency in the diet can make a person prone to bone diseases. So, following a healthy diet and an exercise program can prolong and even prevent the occurrence of these elderly health issues.

Remember, an actor like Clint Eastwood who is more than 75 years old, even today, directs movies. Sounds incredible, isn’t it? Even at this age, he has ventured into film direction, which is not an easy task. He has been successful in keeping elderly health issues at bay, thanks to his healthy lifestyle, his overall health is in good shape.

Warning Health Hazard! Ingesting Low Grade Zeolite Can Be Fatal Purchase Only High Grade Zeolite Fo

Hi my name is Louis Scuffil. Some consider me an expert on water. So this is an article about Zeolite what does water have to do with Zeolite you may ask? Well that is another article in itself. a quick synopsis: I discovered Zeolite when I went to find an effective way of removing toxins from our bodies.
To start with I sell water filtration systems commercially and occasionally for householders. When people see their water is very polluted, tap or bottled water. They have many emotions none of them are positive. The water is full of heavy metal contaminants and chemicals. Some bottled water is clean , but acidic. If you drink bottled water, the chances that it is NOT contaminated is slim and none.
Many people once they realize they have been drinking contaminated water. They ask me what can they do to cleanse the toxins out of their body. (As I am in the water filtration business and initially I was unable to answer them).

I then decided to find the best detoxification method. I already understood that Glutathione is the very essence of our immune system, however, I did not realize that it is also responsible for disposing of toxins at the cellular level. The bad news is that the amount of Glutathione in our bodies is dropping sharply. Why, I can only speculate, I am not a medical doctor so I do not know for certain why that is.(Nor do the doctors)
The little that I know seems to lead me to believe it is the overloading of our bodies of these toxins that are bombarding us daily in the air, in our water and in our food. We can take some supplements that will raise the Glutathione levels in our bodies. I understand all these products have to go via a precursor that then enables the body to increase our levels of Glutathione.

The problem is that it is a slow and steady process. I am not saying we should not take these products, on the contrary I think we should all be on these products for prevention. This does not solve the problem of detoxifying our bodies of these contaminants quickly and effectively. So I continued my quest. I had many set backs until I discovered a relatively new discovery, namely, Zeolite, which is a volcanic mineral that has the ability when cleaned and processed to suck out all the volatile chemicals and heavy metals from our body. Ironically, these volcanic mineral is literally full of heavy metals and volatile substances. It was discovered that by using a certain process; the mineral properties that sucked in the pollutants in the first place could have the reverse effect when processed using a patented method.

Literally Zeolites properties that caused it to be full of contaminants could be reversed and used to suck out the toxins from our body.

I have never come across such an effective product as Zeolite. Only one catch because the method of extraction is patented. Others who see a huge potential for making a quick buck on this product. They bypass the extraction method and mine the Zeolite without any thought of the consequences. Zeolite without the extraction process is known as low grade Zeolite.

If the extraction method is bypassed, you can literally die from ingesting low grade Zeolite.
High grade Zeolite brings to mind an old Buddhist saying “Turn poison into medicine”. That is exactly what a company named Waiora did back in 2005.

The following is a description of Zeolite:

The Zeolite molecule is shaped like a bee’s honeycomb and carries a natural negative (-) charge. When this type of Zeolite is ingested into the body all of the positively charged (+) toxins, heavy metals, and harmful chemicals bond with the Zeolite and are flushed out by your bodies natural functions within 7-8 hours.

Zeolite’s sensational success discovery is in the use of Natural Chelation Therapy and is one hundred percent Safe and one hundred percent Effective!

CAUTION: Waring, Danger DO NOT purchase “Low Grade” Zeolite The use of low grade Zeolite being sold as “Knock Offs” can be fatal! Read below.

Zeolite succes in removing heavy metals has led to unscrupulous companies producing their own forms of Zeolite right now. There is a specific costly process that has to be followed to ensure high grade Zeolite. Many people have been taking in by these unscrupulous companies. You are being cheated by these dangerous cheap Knock Offs. low grade Zeolite is full of deadly heavy metal you will end up becoming even more toxic than you were before and it could be fatal.

When looking for Zeolite it’s very important to purchase high quality Liquid Zeolite that has been thoroughly cleaned and processed is one hundred percent pure and safe to use. Only Waiora’s Natural Cellular Defense Zeolite product can truthfully make this claim.

Waiora is the only company that has the rights to sell the Original Liquid Zeolite that’s been purified through our patented process. Waiora’s Zeolite is the only Zeolite with approved clinical trials and the scientific process to enable safe and effective use.

Since 2005 there have been fourteen clinical studies conducted over the past three years and the results are amazing!
The first official study will be published by the end of this year (2008) and the rest of the studies will follow very quickly.
Since the discovery Zeolite has become a sensational success. and the official study will prove scientifically why it works so effectively.

Natural Cellular Defense miracle is the only Activated Zeolite in the world. It’s pure and the product has not been modified since it became available in July 2005. Natural Cellular Defense miracle is listed on the FDA GRAS list .

*Data is compiled from several laboratory sources – Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Inc., Watson Analytical Services LLC, Microbac Laboratories, Inc., and AnalytiKem Services, Inc.

**VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) are organic chemical compounds that have high enough vapor pressures under normal conditions to enter the atmosphere. Ex ( formaldehyde, sulfide,methane, artificial VOC’s like paint thinner, , petroleum and dry cleaning solvents).

The Process of Activation of Natural Cellular Defense properties:
Step One: It starts with raw clinoptilolite Zeolite that comes directly from the Zeolite mine site. This Zeolite is crushed to a very fine powder; for easy absorption into the bloodstream. The average Zeolite cage size is brought down from 40 microns or more in size to: ( 20%) to less than 5 microns –( 80%) to less than 1 micron

The Cleansing Process

Step Two: The micronized powder is mixed with ultra-filtered water in a specially designed vessel, Natural acids and heat are then added to start the purification process. The heat eradicates all VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) and begins to work on the heavy metals and other harmful pollutants.

Step three: The solution is then cooled very quickly which then separates the heavy metals from the material. This serration forms a layer of heavy metals that is then disposed of. This process is repeated over a period of four days, it usually takes at least ten applications until all the harmful pollutants have been removed.

Step four: The heavy metals have now been removed, then an air-forced and vacuum filtration system removes all the soluble heavy metals and neutralizes the solution. The final filtration stage has produced the activated Clinoptilolite with an average particle size of 1 micrometer. What remains is pure cleaned out Zeolite in an ultra-filtered water solution.

Caution! Warning! Danger! Only Waiora can use this unique system to detoxify your body. There are numerous heavy metals found in natural Zeolite. Beware of All Zeolite in a powdered form or any other liquid form other than Waiora.s can be detrimental and in some cases cause death

At Waiora we could offer any type of Zeolite product that is on the market, after intensive study and research it was very clear that nothing even compares to the Pure, Activated Liquid Zeolite that Waiora offers with their Natural Cellular Defense miracle.

What is the recommended daily amount of Zeolite? How much Zeolite Should I Take?

Each bottle contains 15ml of Liquid Cellular Zeolite. The recommended dosage is 10 drops three times per day for the first 30 days, then take 3 drops three times per day each day after that for the rest of your life.

The amount of Zeolite you should take will depends on how much heavy metal build up that has accumulated in your body, If you have a lot of heavy metal in your body then you should double or triple the normal dosage until your body has been thoroughly cleansed.

Do not worry about overdosing on Zeolite. It is all natural and within 7-8 hours, all traces of Zeolite will be completely flushed out of your system

The Health Advantages And Disadvantages Of Herbal Tea

The herbal tea is different to normal tea in that it is an infusion of herbs and is not made out of leaves of the tea bush. Herbal tea may be prepared out of fresh or dried leaves, seeds or roots, most often by pouring boiling water over the parts of the plant and letting them steep for a few minutes.

Some Herbal Teas can be Dangerous to Your Health

In the case of seeds and roots, it is also possible to boil them on a stove after which they may be strained and sweetened, according to your own personal taste. There are also herbal tea bags being sold by many companies for infusion, if you prefer.

There are very many different types of herbal tea and these include that of: Anise tea, Bissap, Catnip, Chamomile, Chrysanthemum, Citrus, Echinacea, Essiac, Fennel, Ginger, Hibiscus, Honeybush, Gentian, Horehound, Kava, Labrador, Lapacho, Lemon, Licorice, Lime blossom, Mate, Mint, Nettle, red Raspberry, Rooibos, Rose hip, Sage, Sassafras, Skullcap, Thyme, Tulsi, Valerian, Vetiver, Wong Logat, Woodruff, Yarrow, Yuen Kut Lam Kam Wo Tea (from Hong Kong) and Tan Ngan Lo Medicated Tea.

Herbal tea is often drunk for both physical and medical effects and their stimulant, relaxing and sedative properties are highly appreciated by tea drinkers all over the world. However, in spite of the fact that most herbal teas are safe to drink, some do have toxic or allergenic effects and the most worrying are: Comfrey, which contains alkaloids which may permanently damage the liver; Lobelia, which contains toxins that are considered to have the same effect as nicotine; and Pineapple Weed, which can cause violent allergies causing anaphylactic shock and even death.

Even Hercule Poirot, the famous detective from Agatha Christie’s novels was known to be an avid herbal tea and hot chocolate drinker and in many stories drank herbal tea to soothe his nerves as well as to recover from the ill effects of weather.

The use of herbal tea is as old as the hills and has been imbibed somewhat since writing first evolved and has been in use for centuries, at first primarily for medicinal purposes and later to enjoy and relish. There are many health benefits that can be derived from drinking herbal tea, even though not all herbal teas are healthy.

Drinking herbal tea is one way to avoid the ill effects of drinking especially caffeine laden beverages and sometimes spices may be added to get that extra zing, or even for a particular medicinal benefit. From the many studies conducted on the effects of drinking herbal tea it has been found that this tea’s polyphenols can actually lower the risk of gastric, esophageal and skin cancer, simply by drinking four to six glasses each day.

Health benefits of butter An ayurveda perception

Dictionaries define butter as “a solid emulsion of fat globules, air, and water made by churning milk or cream and used as food”. Butter is known as “Navaneeta” in Sanskrit. It is referred as navaneeta in texts of ayurveda too. Butter is usually made from cows or buffalos milk. But it can be made from milk of other mammals like sheep, goats, camel etc.

Butter prepared out of cows milk contains saturated fats, monosaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, plenty of Vitamin A, Vtamin D, Vitamin D and Cholesterol.

Texts of ayurveda consider butter prepared from milk of cow, buffalo and sheep for medicinal use. The health benefits of butter are very well explained in ayurveda.

Butter prepared from cows milk has the following medicinal properties.

It acts as a body coolant.
This butter nourishes body tissues and increases body energy level.
The complexion of skin and strength of body increases when butter is consumed.
Butter increases appetite.
It alleviates vata and pitta.
Very effective in piles or hemorrhoids.
Reduces cough.
Elderly people and infants are benefited by butter. It acts like an elixir when administered to infants and elderly.

Butter prepared from buffalos milk has the following medicinal properties

It increases vata and kapha.
Butter prepared from buffalos milk is heavy to digest.
Consumption of this butter alleviates pitta, burning sensation and tiredness.
It increases quality and quantity of semen.
Body fat or medho dhatu gets increased by consuming this regularly.

Butter prepared from sheeps milk alleviates vata, pitta and kapha and is superior to all other types of butter.Texts of ayurveda eulogize the medicinal properties of sheep’s milk.

Sheep milk is treasure of nutrients. It is richer in vitamins A, B, and E, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium than cow milk. The chains of fatty acids in sheep milk have many health benefits. They have little effect on blood cholesterol level of humans. It is easy to digest fat portion of sheep milk.

Butter mixed with sandal wood paste is usually massaged over babies body to cleanse its skin and soften it. This improves complexion and glow of skin. Butter massage also helps to prevent drying of baby skin.

Health Note:

If you have atherosclerosis, heart disease, high cholesterol ( hypercholesterolemia) in the upper range 200-239 mg/dL or high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia), the American Heart Association recommends a maximum daily limit of 200mg of dietary cholesterol, and advises no more than 7 percent of calories be eaten in the form of saturated fat.
A new study shows that exposure to a chemical called diacetyl, a component of artificial butter flavoring, can be harmful.

Home Health Care A Few Figures

You don’t have to make the terrible decision to send one of your loved ones to a hospital or nursing home; there is always the home health care option! Just think, you might even be able to save money by having a professional come to your home to take care of someone who has been hurt.

Home health care, in the most basic sense, is where a trained agent will come in and do all of the things that a patient would have needed at the hospital, but in the convenient setting of a home environment, where friends and family can be around as well to help things.

Some of the options for this type of care include things like wound care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and patient and caregiver educational information. People can also deal with IV’s, injections, nutrition, and the monitoring of serious conditions that just require a watchful eye, and not scrutiny by high-paid hospital staff.

There are all sorts of agencies that have home health care options. You’ll find companies ranging from tiny neighborhood ones to major corporate ones, and the options that you need will be clearly defined when you talk to any of them for the first time. Just don’t be scared to ask questions.

The home health care staff will take care of a patients eating and drinking, check on vitals like temperature, breathing, pain levels, amount of sleep they get, heart rate, and blood pressure. In addition, they can take care of things like basic cooking and cleaning, depending on the program you’ve set up for them.

You’ll always be made aware of your plan of care as well. Essentially, this is just a list of every detail of your health and how it relates to an agent. Time frames, equipment use, medication details, things like that. If anything changes in your condition, your plan of care will indicate that, so you can keep a record of how things have progressed over time.

Conditions for the home health care service should be constantly improving as well. Every new day will have something that happens, and each challenge should be approached as a way for them to make the overall service better. Staff should always be polite and well-informed as well, giving everyone in the system a chance to be as happy as possible.

Now that you have a basic understanding of how home health care works, do a little homework to find if there are local places that fit you needs, and you know that you’ll be ready to make the right decision if you’re ever put in the position to make a call.

Going through Home Health Care

For people who are in need of rehabilitation, home health care seems to be the best answer or solution. This is also becoming a popular choice among families with senior elders living at home. The good thing about home health care is that it is actually a pretty flexible setup.

There are different types of services under the umbrella of home health care. It all depends on what the patient needs. So it is important that the patient, together with their doctor, actually be assessed first so that you can plot out and find a program that would suit them best.

In general, skilled nursing is what home health care is all about. It can be administered as either full-time or part-time, depending on the program. Aside from assisted living, there are other services offered by home health care agencies too such as physical and occupational therapy.

In addition to these, home health care is also rendered by different types of professionals. They would also be assigned by the agency depending on the patient’s actual condition. In general, these care professionals can accomplish some light housekeeping duties. But they could also accomplish more complex tasks for the patient.

Depending on the case of the patient, a nurse may also be assigned to your home. However, nurses for home health care often follow a specific schedule and visit on an intermittent basis. But there are also agencies where hiring a nurse, who lives with the patient, is made possible. Rates of this kind might be more expensive but worth it.

However, the agency would not just hire a nurse or an aide all on their own. As much as possible, they would involve the client in the sourcing process. They would provide their qualified people and the client often gets a hand in to pick whom they prefer to become part of their family member’s life.

Agencies are an integral part of home health care. They are the ones who provide and train the care practitioners who tend to different types of patients. The thing about agencies is that they are also affiliated with the government and were given due licenses to operate.

Because home health care is a long term thing, you should consider making this plan first with your family. You need to make sure that this is something that you can also have plenty of budget for because it would take years and not merely months.

Demand for High-End Health Care on the Rise in China

The original health care system cannot meet the demands of the wealthy market. This is an opportunity for investment, especially as the government is now encouraging and promoting the development of high-end health care” – Ministry of Health Medical Services Regulatory Secretary Chen John Jiu, July 2012

China is home to the 4th largest number of millionaires in the world and Beijing is home to the greatest number of wealthy people in China, including 179,000 millionaires and 10,500 people considered super-rich. Those with higher incomes, thanks to a rich diet, urban living, and less reliance on manual labor or exercise, often suffer from a higher incidence of chronic illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, liver disease, respiratory illness, diabetes and stress. These people are increasingly concerned about their health and finding access to health care services that meets their needs.

INVESTMENT & IMPROVEMENTS IN HEALTH CARE
On June 3 2012 Research Institute Fortune issued a white paper titled “China Wealth Health” stating that although wealthy Chinese are paying more attention to their health about 68% of them are suffering from sub-health conditions. The paper concludes that there are over 30 million individuals of high net worth and emerging wealth in need of improved medical services.

Director of the Chinese Doctor Association, Yin Dakui says, “Most people want to be able to enjoy better medical services. Chinese and foreign capital investors are coming together to meet the needs of the population with a higher standard of medical care.”

To help meet this demand, in November 2012 the international company WA Optimum Health Care established their new specialty health care facility in Beijings Fragrant Mountain National Park. Their Chairman, Dr Shu Li, Harvard PhD comments “The location, architecture, quality of medical care and standard of service were all designed with the needs of patients in mind. Privacy, discretion and excellent follow-up care are crucial. Of course the most important factor is the level of personal medical attention given to each patient, which is why we have invested in bringing the best doctors from within China and around the world here.”

With a flagship center already operating in Shanghai for over 2 years, the international management and medical teams of WA Optimum Health Care are very familiar with the realities of meeting the demands of the market as well as navigating the regulations and licensing issues that have historically challenged other international health care providers that have tried to enter Chinese market. WA Optimum Health Care Vice Chairman Derek Muhs said, “With the implementation of recent health care reforms in China, we are pleased to be one of the first foreign companies providing a gold standard of health care services in this market. The growth opportunities over the next 5 years in the health care sector in China are very exciting.”

The WA Center in Beijing is a multi-discipline medical center of excellence specializing in the treatment and prevention of serious chronic conditions such as infertility, diabetes, liver disease, joint degeneration, chronic pain and sexual dysfunction, among others. There is also an advanced cosmetic medicine department that offers rejuvenation and cosmetic improvements performed by leading cosmetic surgeons from Switzerland, USA, South Korea and China.

At the WA Beijing private opening event Mr Wang, President of the “China Industry-University-Research Institute Collaboration Association” presented WA with a plaque endorsing them as a “China Clinical Research Center for Functional Anti-Aging Regenerative Medicine”.

Countless Chinese people go abroad annually for health care services, especially for anti-aging and cosmetic treatments, cancer screening, to give birth and to get treatment for chronic diseases. But with the governments health reform and support for private health care facilities, more and more Chinese are opting to stay home, where they can now have an international standard of health care in their own language and essential follow-up maintenance program with their personal doctor.

According to a September 2012 report by McKinsey & Company, Chinas health care spending is projected to grow from $357 billion in 2011 to $1 trillion in 2020. China remains one of the worlds most attractive markets, and is by far the fastest growing of all the large emerging markets.

Mr Muhs, quoted earlier, disclosed “We are looking closely at some exciting new opportunities for expansion and acquisition in the health care sector in China. With our 3-5 year IPO on the horizon this will be a very strategic expansion so as not to compromise the medical service that the market is demanding, and that we envision is the future of a new standard of health care in China.”
