Apidextra reviews

May 24th, 2012 | Posted by Cynth in For Cynth | Health - (0 Comments)

Here we go again, another diet pill out in the market and another product to try and see if it works. It really is becoming hard to check one from the other so I decided to search for apidextra reviews online to ensure that this new product will indeed work with minimal side effects for anyone who want to lose weight. Losing weight as I have always mentioned before is quite difficult for me, I tried generally everything to no avail but this new product seems to hold a lot of promise and I do hope that it is that one “miracle drug” we are all waiting for. Well, with all the products that have come out, what makes this new one different? Well they say that the ingredients in this product is known to do everything that is needed to lose weight, burn fat, increase metabolism, suppress appetite and increase energy as well and that it’s not just all hyped up ingredients that actually do nothing for you. Well, yes we are all hoping for the best and hoping that indeed this new drug will do as it promises so that our search will really finally be over. I have ordered my first bottle, so let’s just wait and see where it leads us in the end.

yoga exercise yoga  Will yoga exercise help me lose weight? pictureI recently took up a yoga class since I really wanted to be in tune with my body. Of course lose weight and be a bit more flexible, so I took up yoga and of course it’s cool to have those yoga mats too but it’s hard to carry them to class just rolled up like that. So I also bought for myself a yoga mat bag. The bag is made of sturdy material so I know that my yoga mat is safe inside it, plus my extra shirt and towel fits right in as well. Losing weight was never easy for me and it has always been a big fight, but I know with a little bit more perseverance I can deliver. Eating and sitting all day lead me to this voluptuous body and I’m hoping that a little exercise and a little diet will help me get to the body I want, I don’t want to be skinny nor muscled. I just want to reach my “chubby” weight, way back when I was single. It will not be easy, I’m around 60 pounds away from it and I’m a long, long way from where I want to go but I really am optimistic that this time I can do it.

Chemo, Oh chemo

August 27th, 2011 | Posted by Cynth in For Cynth | Health - (0 Comments)

My sister in law finally started her chemo, her blood tests and stuff were strong enough for her to undergo the treatment. We went to the hospital for an overnight stay and she is in good spirits. During her treatment she is not allowed to go near anybody as her immune system is down and she is prone to infection. She said that for around 5 months she will be in a cocoon and she will emerge as a beautiful butterfly after her treatment. We are glad that she is keeping optimistic towards these ordeal. It’s not easy I know and not easy to stay positive, but through it all she has endured and for that I am glad. She also realizes how many people loves her as so many are praying for her and some even gave a helping hand financially, people she know to also just have enough have taken it upon themselves to help her out and for that she is completely blessed.

Her chemo would last to 6 cycles with 3 weeks intervals so it will be around 5-6 months before she can be well again totally. Well we just continue to pray for her to be completely healed and be cancer free. It will be great celebration when that comes about. God is good we know and we all just entrust our lives to him.

My Eyes, My Eyes!

headache head ache eyes eyeglasses eye glasses  My Eyes, My Eyes! pictureMy head has been throbbing for a while now and I really haven’t discovered the cause until now that is. I have worn glasses ever since I was in high school and well it’s not easy wearing glasses but I’m used to it since I’ve been wearing it for so long and it never really occurred to me that my pain was due to my eyes. I was hurting so bad that I just kept sleeping it off. Imagine me waking up well and good and wearing my glasses like there was no problem and a little while later, the throbbing starts again and no pain reliever is able to make it all go away. I would have to sleep it off again and take off my glasses… My glasses, oh my, I think that’s it, that’s why my head have been throbbing. I need to go to the eye doctor soon… My eyes, my eyes, you have betrayed me yet again but that’s okay, I’ll take care of you, you’re precious to me, without you, I can’t see, without you I can’t work, so I’ll take care of you, soon, I promise…

Well, whether I would like to admit it or not, I am not getting any younger and I am needing more and more help to stay fit and healthy these days. I have tried many supplements to help supplement my health and maintain it through these busy, stressful days. I remember taking in so many supplements, up to 5 pills a day just to ensure that I don’t get sick and can continue working through the day. Until I found HGH supplements that is, now I am able to maintain a healthy body, show a youthful looking skin, increase energy and I find that I am revitalized in a way no other supplement has done for me before and I only need to take this one pill and not 5. I was able to save up on just needing to buy 1 pill rather than buy all 5. It really is a wonder.

I used to be afraid of getting older, of my skin wrinkling and myself withering, but now I’m more confident and more at ease with adding age simply because I now have a partner in getting old, one that will help me age gracefully and beautifully. I cannot ask for anything more.

Anyone who ever drank alcohol, puffed a joint or took a pill knows that you can easily get pulled into the relief, the elation, however temporary, these brews can provide. And anyone who ever had a loved one or perhaps even themselves caught in the web of drugs, alcohol or even prescriptions pills knows the battle that they wage through, the pain they suffer as they go through their addiction and when they try to quit it.

Now undergoing rehab is never easy, not only for the victims themselves but for their loved ones as well. One of the more effective treatment programs is the Residential Drug Rehab, experts agree that it allows the individual to reintegrate into his/her native community easily as he learns to let go of the addiction and live a normal, healthier life.

Generally these drug rehab programs have different durations, some may be as short as 30 days while others can last up to a year. Duration will depend upon the degree and depth of the individual’s problems as rehabilitation programs tend to work on the problems of the individual that led to the addition in the first place as well as working towards weaning them off the addiction.

Now Drug Rehab Utah tends to focus on residential rehab treatments as these tend to be more effective that the more stringent facilities that strangle the patients’ individuality which they tend to rebel against as well making the treatment ineffective. The same thing goes for drug rehab San Jose. If you are looking for a good rehabilitation center for yourself or a loved one who needs help, then you might want to seek residential drug rehabilitation facilities in order to allow for a more effective treatment for you or your loved one.Anyone who ever drank alcohol, puffed a joint or took a pill knows that you can easily get pulled into the relief, the elation, however temporary, these brews can provide.

Get rid of blackheads

May 12th, 2011 | Posted by Cynth in For Cynth | Health - (0 Comments)

Most women, even someone like me, a married woman, always wants to look my best. Whether it is to put on makeup or to just to ensure that my face is clean, clear and blemish free. Blackheads on nose is quite a devastating site especially for someone who is quite conscious of how she looks, just like I am. But indeed blackheads are quite hard to get rid of, especially those deeply imbedded ones on the nose. Oh let me tell you, I’ve tried countless products from nose pads to strips to what have you, just to make them go away. Yes, most of them are effective although some more than others, and you do have to keep on using to ensure that they don’t come back and that in itself is taxing but well, to keep my beauty intact, I have to ensure that there are no blackheads anywhere on my face and if putting in products and applying nose strips are the way to do it, then I’ll gladly continue to do so. I think some of the best ways to get rid of blackheads include keeping clean inside and out. Taking in vitamin supplements as well as making sure that my face is clean is indeed a good way to go.

scrubs nursing scrubs nursing nurse medical nursing scrubs buy medical scrubs online  Medical Nursing Scrubs Online pictureWhenever I see someone wearing medical nursing scrubs I really am awed by them. It’s just when I see someone wearing scrubs, I always equate them with surgeons, doctors or someone who works at a hospital and these people are well, respectable and it seems that they have spent a lot of time in school studying, and well I am awed by people who spent their good time learning their craft and doing a great service to others. It will really be a thrill to wear one of those one of these days.

These days a lot of people are wearing scrubs that are not really doctors although most of them are in the healthcare business. But no matter what their position, it is still a thrill to see people wearing them. Perhaps one of the greatest things that the internet has brought about is the ability to shop online for things you want easily and these scrubs are not an exception. You can actually buy medical scrubs online. Can you imagine? I can live my dream of wearing these scrubs easily by ordering one for myself online and it will be delivered straight to my doorstep, perhaps you’d like one too?

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

smoking Smoke Gets In Your Eyes smoke quit smoking  Smoke Gets In Your Eyes pictureWhy is it that, its so hard to quit that habit? Who would’ve thought that I’d end up rivaling smoking! I have never been addicted and I really call it that, smoking. I know how to smoke and do so occasionally, whenever I want to ‘relax’ and have a little fun or during social occasions when I spend time with my friends, but I never really got into the habit of smoking just for the heck of it so to speak. My hubby on the other hand has been smoking for as long as I remember and I have been urging him to stop and well I thought he did. For the longest time I thought he did, but it seems that it was all a perfect lie! He was just very good at hiding his habit and I hate it, I hate it that and it seems that I’m fighting a losing battle, a battle I can’t win no matter what. I’ve threatened and I’ve cursed (so to speak) and I’ve balled my eyes out of crying because he can’t seem to understand my fervent desire for him to quit. For health reasons, his, mine and our kids… but it seems that no matter what I do or say, nothing goes into his thick head. Or perhaps he just refuses to? But well, what can I say, what can I do? I’m a beaten foe. I yield to this adversary that is so strong it envelopes my entire being and chokes me to my core. I hate that I have to yield, have to give up, but if I don’t then I think it will be sanity next that will be attacked. I’d rather keep my sanity for my kids. I’d rather fold to unbeatable foe than risk an even greater danger of falling to despair because I can’t seem to win against a burning stick. So if you see my eyes water because of this despair, I’ll just say, smoke gets in your eyes…

breast cancer clothing breast cancer clothes breast cancer  Breast Cancer Clothes And Accessories pictureNow I have never really thought about breast cancers and its effect on many ladies who have been inflicted with this disease, although an aunt is a survivor I really haven’t realized how much the disease has affected her. That is until recently when I saw a documentary about breast cancer survivors and their struggles with even the most basic things in life. A radical mastectomy is a great way to kill the disease yet deciding to lose one or two breast can be quite debilitating to the emotional and psychological well being of anyone who has to undergo such procedures. I myself cannot imagine not seeing the two bumps in front of me.

Perhaps the good thing is that many people are now getting more aware of the disease and many manufacturers are seeing the value in providing breast cancer clothes for these women, an assortment of beautiful dresses designed to bring confidence back to these women. There are even breast cancer bras that can help women survivors feel more normal and more at ease with themselves whenever they wear these clothing lines. According to one website these breast cancer clothes and accessories allow the women to be comfortable, feel confident and get back to their old lifestyles before the cancer and allow them to feel sexy and beautiful again even without an asset or two.

summer getaway summer camping camarines norte calaguas island package tours and packages calaguas island calaguas beach camping beach  Calaguas Island Summer Getaway 2011 pictureSummer has arrived and I really have been hankering for some rest and relaxation. The summer season is really the time to commune with nature and get one with Mother Earth, if you get my drift. The kids has also been requesting for at least one summer getaway before school starts again in June and well, that’s just over a month from now, so I’ve really been thinking of where to go and what to do to let the kids enjoy their summer while I get me a relaxing day on the beach perhaps. And well, my birthday is coming up and it might be nice to go for a short summer vacation, a beautiful beach to enjoy the sand and surf so to speak. A friend suggested we go to Calaguas Island in Camarines Norte, the place is untouched by human hands, so it’s a very good place to feel one with nature. I think we’ll take that trip next weekend. It will be a treat to see the kids cope with beach camping, I sure hope they enjoy it as much as I know I will.

holistic theraphy herbal medicine alternative medicine  Alternative Medicine pictureAlternative medicine are what you can call medical techniques outside of regular medical procedures, and this method often use natural procedures and herbal medicine to cure common ailments and debilitating diseases. Now these procedures may include holistic therapies, meditation and yoga, even acupuncture and acupressure as well as herbal concoctions to allow your body to align itself with nature or with its spiritual being and attempt to heal itself with the assistance of these alternative therapies.

It seems that more and more people are becoming interested with this method of healing perhaps because of the idea that some of the methods are quite cheap and that there pose to be very minimal to no side effects of herbal medications and holistic interventions. So, who gets sicker with meditation or yoga? Perhaps the answer to the will be no one. So it is quite normal for people to begin to try these alternative health methods and try their hand at healing naturally.

holistic theraphy herbal medicine alternative medicine  Alternative Medicine pictureI myself have opted to go for natural therapies, aside from being less costly than regular medical intervention, holistic therapies also include a host of other benefits not limited to me being healthier and happier, but I have more strength, and the will to do more and be more. But it wasn’t easy finding someone who can help me with my quest, good thing there was Jasmine directory, aside from showing me various business listing of persons and companies offering what I wanted, it was an online business web directory that directed me to everything I needed and more. They also provided me with various articles that help me get to know alternative medicine even more and for that I am really glad that I found Jasmine directory. So if you’re looking for something on the web, whether it’s about alternative therapies or something else entirely, you will surely not go wrong with Jasmine.

According to a recent study, Chromium can actually help make us feel full, and crave for food less, it also says that taking chromium supplements can actually lead to reduced cravings for food that are rich in both fats and sugars. Isn’t that interesting enough for you? It is for me, it’s like great news, because if you eat foods or take supplements that contains Chromium, it can actually help manage weight and cravings, plus it’s easier to slim down. The research also showed that taking the supplement also significant improvements in countering depression.
So, knowing this, I made a quick research. Aside from the supplement itself, what food can I eat that contains Chromium? I found out that the most common fruits and vegetables we eat from day to day, actually contains the said element. And few of them are the ff:

Nitrix – workout supplement

February 23rd, 2011 | Posted by admin in Health - (0 Comments)

My friend Julius is happy and gay, but he looks very manly, and you wouldn’t have a clue that he is what he is, if you don’t know him personally. If he wouldn’t talk, you would really mistake him for a straight guy. A lot of people do. We’ve been friends since college days, so I can say, I know him pretty well now. He even tell me about his crushes, etc.
Anyway, he’s really attracted to men who are not only good looking but also possess a great muscular body. I told him that he should also workout and take supplements like nitrix, then work on having a great skin complexion. For sure, he would gain the attention of those guys, who might also have the same preference as him. I am supportive of his sexuality, because I believe in equality, and all people should be treated with respect. Whatever his preference may be, may it be a girl or a man, as long as he is happy, that’s all that matters. His parents have learned to accept him, the way he is too. I hope he would be successful in improving his image, most especially with achieving the kind of physique he long wanted to have.

prenatal vitamins for pregnant women

January 24th, 2011 | Posted by admin in Health - (0 Comments)

Our neighbor was advised by his doctor to take a leave from work to make sure that she and the baby will be safe, because she’s having a high risk pregnancy, and any stress could possibly endanger her or the babies life. She is also advised to take supplements, drink milk, and have a regular prenatal check-up to monitor her pregnancy.
Taking care of a baby while he or she is still developing as a fetus is just as important as taking care of him/her after he or she is born. Actually, it’s the more crucial stage, because how healthy the baby would be when he comes out, would depend on his development while inside the womb. Pregnant women should be encouraged to take prenatal vitamins to ensure that the baby in their womb will be strong and healthy, and to avoid any possible birth defects. It’s also proven that moms who nurture their baby even before they were born, are likely to have more intelligent and healthier kids when they grow up. So, no matter how scarce the budget may be, or how hard life is, it should not be a reason to neglect all the necessary check-up and supplements that a pregnant woman should be taking.

fear of needles and blood

November 26th, 2010 | Posted by admin in Health - (2 Comments)

thyroid problems thyroid gland thyroid phobias laboratory exam blood samples biopsy  fear of needles and blood pictureI guess just like me, you also have phobias. Actually, I have quite a few of them, but one thing that I’m scared of is getting confined to the hospital, blood extraction for laboratory exam, etc. But there were instances that can’t be avoided. I had to go to the doctor because of my thyroid problem. It was worsening then, and I was already feeling worse.
My mom took me to the doctor for some series of tests, which included laboratory exams. I passed out when they took blood samples from me, it was so embarrassing, but it’s alright, because they don’t know me anyway.
But when it was time for the biopsy, it was really different. I felt like it was few levels higher, because the doctor needs to take samples to determine the level of toxicity in my thyroid gland.
I felt scared when I saw the doctor and the nurse coming our way, most especially when I saw the syringe and the size of its needle on the medical cart. I got really nervous and I think the doctor was aware of it and told me that it’s okay, and it will last longer and hurt if I won’t relax. They then performed the biopsy and inserted the needle right into my neck. Imagine how scared I was. I tried to relax but I was shaking, and my sweat felt cold on my forehead, then suddenly I felt dizzy, and I passed out. I couldn’t remember anything after that. When I woke up, I saw my mom’s worried face as they were trying to revive me from fainting by making me sniff that cotton with the strong smell of ammonia.
It was really embarrassing, but at least, I’m well now, and I did not have to go through any surgery. Imagine the worst thing that could happen to me if ever I had to be cut up like that on the neck. Whoa! I know patients get sedated and they use anesthesia, but still…. :P

My friend Dondon called me up today. I’ve always been wondering how he’s been. We haven’t spoken for such a long time, since he went back to school, and then started working too.

He used to work as my assistant in our small office, but after we closed our business, he went back to school. I’ve heard that he stopped schooling again and got employed in a a big mall’s appliance center.

zits treatment skin therapy skin problems dermatologist best acne treatments acne  How can you face your problem if the problem is your face? pictureTo my surprise, he suddenly called asking for help. He was asking what best acne treatments I could recommend because he’s been suffering from severe skin problems. He recently got promoted, and he doesn’t feel too confident with his looks, because of the zits. I told him that he should try to consult my dermatologist, because she was the one who helped me out when I had the same problem, early this year. He was worried it might cost him a lot, because payday is still on the end of the month. I told him that it won’t really cost too much, besides it will take a few sessions before the skin therapy is over.
He thanked me and said that he will drop by sometime, because we have so much to catch up on. I’m also excited to hear his stories, especially the things happening at work.

How can I encourage my mom to go on a diet?

November 26th, 2010 | Posted by admin in Health - (0 Comments)

new year mommy mom lose weight hypertension Health ephedra diet pills diet pills dad christmas celebration birthdays  How can I encourage my mom to go on a diet? pictureMy dad and I keep on telling my mom that she’s getting fat, and needs to go on a diet. She would always say that she is contented with the way she looks. But we are concerned about her health because she has hypertension. So, dad bought her some exercise machines which she hardly even use.

My mom loves to cook, especially during special occasions like birthdays, Christmas, New Year, and other occasions that calls for a celebration. And because Christmas and New year, plus her birthday is coming soon, she said that she’ll just go on a diet next year. We really hope that she’s serious about it this time.

Her old friend who used to be so fat took ephedra diet pills and started doing ballroom dancing early this year, has gotten really fit and curvy now. Her kids even call their mom, sexy mommy. We keep on encouraging mom to follow her footsteps, so next time that they will have a reunion, they won’t say my mom is fat or something like that. We want her to be fit, healthy, looking and feeling confident as always. Not that she doesn’t feel confident now, because she always feel like she’s the prettiest woman ever lived in this planet, but it’s still different if she goes back to her original weight and body structure when she was younger.
