The Dynamic Duo for Dementia Prevention

By |September 29th, 2022|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: , , |

Are Omega 3 + B vitamins - the dynamic duo for dementia prevention? There are many factors that increase a person’s risk for dementia, such as age, but very few that are ‘disease modifying’. A risk factor such as age is obviously not modifiable. You can live to any age without getting Alzheimer’s. That means that Alzheimer’s is not a natural function of age. Age might ‘predict’ increased risk but it tells you nothing about how to prevent it.

Signs and Symptoms of Osteoarthritis

By |July 27th, 2022|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: |

Osteoarthritis tends to creep up on you, gradually increasing over months or years. Stiff and painful joints are the main symptoms. The pain tends to be worse on exercising the joint and at the end of the day. Joints tend to be stiff after resting but this usually passes in just a minute or two as the joint gets moving again. A joint may not move as freely or as far as normal, and often 'creaks' or 'cracks' when moved.

In the past, many more men than women died from heart disease, but in recent years the numbers have evened out, with more women than men dying from strokes. For most people over 50, having cancer or losing one’s memory holds the greatest fear, but in fact more people die prematurely from diseases of the heart and arteries than anything else – roughly half from heart attacks and a quarter from strokes.

By |November 14th, 2021|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: , |

Are you tired, overweight, anxious and despondent? Do you believe that no one can help you get better? Are you depressed because no one understands your condition?

Urinary Tract Infections – causes and treatments

By |October 20th, 2021|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: , , , , |

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the second-most common infection in women and as such their causes and treatment options deserve attention here. Most cases of UTIs can be cured by a course of antibiotics aided by increased fluid intake. The problem lies with those sufferers who have recurring infections, often due to poor inner self-healing. These are more likely to develop serious kidney problems if the chronic infection is not dealt with effectively.

Osteoporosis and your Skeleton – use it or lose it

By |September 5th, 2021|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: |

The word osteoporosis (from the Greek for ‘bone’ and ‘pore’) tells us that the affected bones have holes in their structure. Osteoporosis has been called the ‘silent disease’, progressing without any outward sign, sometimes for decades, until a fracture occurs. Today, regular bone mineral density (BMD) tests have broken this silence – the disease is now in the open, a challenge to be overcome with specific nutrition, supplements, medicine and exercise.
