Your Sexual Health – Do You Know How Sexual Abstinence Harms Your Health and Happiness?

Doctors tell us that sexual abstinence can harm the physical and psychic health of men and women. Find out how you can reverse the harmful side effects of abstinence with or without a sexual partner.

How can sexual abstinence harm your health?

You may be grieving the loss of your romantic partner or a loss of sexual intimacy in a relationship, and the process of grieving takes a huge toll on your health. When your thoughts turn to loss and dis-ease, you lose the health benefits of feeling love and gratitude — our two healing emotions.

You may feel content on your own without a sexual partner, yet the lack of sexual activity takes its health toll.

Men and women who abstain from sex for long periods can develop problems with sexual function.

Men may experience issues concerning erection and ejaculation. Testosterone levels may fall and reduce desire.

Women may suffer a loss of arousal, vaginal lubrication and an inability to climax. Estrogen levels may fall and bad cholesterol may rise.

Fortunately, these conditions may reverse and return to normal after you resume sexual activity.

Men and women who abstain from sex miss out on these health benefits of sexual activity:

- ease in handling stress

- speedy cell repair and regeneration

- increased intimacy hormones that elevate mood

- greater blood flow to brain that improves memory

- stronger immune system and less fatigue or illness

- younger skin and less body fat from human growth hormone produced during sex

- extended longevity

If you don’t have a sexual partner, is there another way to gain these health benefits?

Researchers report that our sexual health must be maintained by a regular and active sex life.

If you don’t have a sexual partner, there are several ways to avoid or reverse the side effects of sexual abstinence:

* Substitute sex with masturbation

- Men often masturbate, even when their sex life is in order.

- Many women do not masturbate, even when deprived of sex.

- Some religions view it as sinful, unacceptable behavior.

- Sexual researchers report that masturbation is one way to maintain sexual and psychic health. Here is another:

* Use sex toys

- They are used by adults who cannot make love with a beloved partner, yet they don’t want to sleep around.

- There are vibrators, realistic dolls, dildos that are safe tools for sexual release.

- Unlike casual sex with a partner, the sex toys cannot expose you to STDs.

- They stimulate the health benefits of an active sex life.

* Develop sexual intimacy in a relationship

- Improve your existing relationship so that you revive the spark of sexual fire for an active, healthy sex life.

- Find a compatible match for a loving, passionate relationship through matchmaking services or online dating sites.

- Health studies confirm that you will age better and sustain healthy vitality when you enjoy an active sex life.

Hoarding Clean Up and the Health and Safety Issues That Need to Be Understood

Junk haulers and eager business men earning to make a quick buck around the country have taken advantage of the new hoarding clean up need that is now being exposed. What they don’t think about is the hazardous problems that occur and the legal and health issues that the employees of junk haulers and the hoarding occupant face when those who are not qualified take on the task of hoarding clean up.

Hazards of hoarding are as follows:

Animal and human feces and urine
Actual human body fluid and blood that can contain biological hazards such as aids, hepatitis, other deadly diseases.
Mold and mold spores
Forgotten guns, knives, and sharp objects
Rotten food that now carries diseases
Dead animals that carry diseases
Live animals that may be living in between the piles of clothes, trash and food.

Most junk haulers and well meaning clean up guys, don’t realize what trouble they can get into with the following hazards listed above. Removing body fluids and animal waster without proper training and state licensing can create a legal issue with the homeowner. For example transporting these hazards without a license and if they get caught can get the homeowner and the contractor in legal trouble. Please also be aware that if an employee of a clean up company or trash removal doesn’t have actual certificates from their insurance company that they have workman’s compensation insurance and an employee gets hurt, the homeowner is legally liable for the employees health and any lawsuits.

Mold is another issue. In many hoarding clean up situations mold is growing areas never seen before. When items are removed mold growing on items, walls, and floors can be disturbed. It is a scientific fact that when mold is touched in any way, the mold colony will release mold spores that will get in the air effecting the occupants of the house and the employees of the clean up company. Hoarding clean up companies have to be certified and trained and have years experience to prevent mold becoming a worse issue.

Live animals including rats and other rodents will have made a home in the hoarders home. Live rodents have become accustomed to the environment and have been left alone. Two issues are created by live animals.

One is the massive amounts of rat feces and rat urine that has piled up in between the clothes and on the floor. Home occupants and employees of a hired cleaning service will soon find that this situation is a bio hazard issue and will create all types of illnesses that can be caught by employees.

Experienced hoarding clean up company’s that are also certified and licensed bio hazard clean up and disposal companies are the best choice due to their insurance coverage and knowledge of correctly disposing the feces and urine.

Two is the actual meeting of the cleaner and the live animal. Live rats are not expecting the inexperienced junk hauler to open up their homes and will defend their homes at any chance. As you can imagine, rats will bite and inject rabbis and other deadly diseases.

Hopefully you learned that although the hoarder home may look like an easy task ( not physical easy ), there are many health and safety issues that need to be addressed, especially when it comes to hiring a contractor that doesn’t have correct insurance.

Health and Fitness Level: What Is Your True Level of Health?

Article 4 of 7

This article is about the completion of a key element of the proposed medical information system–the national research center.

To realize the most from this article you need to read the 3 previous articles. However, I will try and summarize some of the key points of those articles here.

The most effective means of evaluating a person’s health would of course be through some direct means of looking into the human organism to see what is truly taking place. Fortunately, as strange as it may seem, the human body does provide such a window in the form of its biochemical makeup. Furthermore, even more encouraging, there is a science already fully developed that is taking full advantage of that body phenomenon called clinical laboratory science. These are major factors in the success any advanced health care system.

I highly recommend that you take a minute here to read what the experts have to say on that matter by clicking on the link (called page 18) at the end of this article. These experts are from text books located in the University of Michigan’s Medical Library.

As described in the link reference on page 18, the advantages of the biochemical makeup of the body is very impressive indeed. Clinical laboratory science is a highly computerized and a very rapidly moving industry. Hundreds of critical tests are now available for use. That industry is an important part of the current health care system. The blood or tissue tests that your doctor orders for you when he or she is suspicious of a given medical condition that needs verification usually involves clinical laboratory science.

The key difference between the proposed national medical information system and the current health care system lies in the difference in the use of these data. The current health care system primarily uses it to evaluate a disease condition whereas the proposed system would apply it on a broader scale basis to include disease prevention and wellness–taking advantage of far more of what clinical science has to offer.

To get a good feel of some of the amazing success in clinical laboratory science click on link (45-47) at the end of this article.

The proposed medical information system would use a completely new and far different type of application of clinical laboratory data. Far larger test profiles (100 blood constituents taken from one blood test) would be used in conjunction with a very sophisticated national research system for massive correlation to human health–including disease prevention and wellness.

Following is a remaining key element of the proposed system.
Article 3 was discussed with the use of handout A. A link to handout A is provided at the end of this article and should be referred to again here. This article will discuss the underlying technical strengths of that system by showing briefly how and why the health data fed into the national research center is so effective in its correlation to human health and wellness.

Referring back to the 100 test profile pattern discussed in article 3, it was shown that the 100 individual bits of test information along with patient environmental and patient data would be fed to the national research computer center (marked case #1). The research computers would record the profile pattern results and correlate that particular combination of test results to a particular health related condition. With the size of this 100 test profile pattern, as discussed earlier, there would be literally trillions of possible combinations involved. Of those trillions of possibilities, there would conservatively end up being at least millions of what we would call significant combinations that would represent significant health related information. The National Research Center would then relate that data to the individual’s current health condition, history, family history, the individual’s environment, and also to the same data of tens of millions of other patients. This is an enormous amount of health information for the supercomputers to pull together and relate to human health conditions!

In addition, there would no doubt also be smaller sets of tests of interest within that overall 100 test profile, such as separate groups of hormones, enzymes, antibodies and other special tests that could also be read and analyzed as separate group combinations as well. Many of us realize how very important these various groups are to our well being.

Let me stop here and review this for a moment. We talk about millions of significant health data combinations. So why is it necessary for such a breadth of examination capacity? Basically, because of the extreme complexities involving our environment, our health and of course their complex inter-relationship. For example, if we (as individuals) try to determine what it is in our environment that is having an effect on our health, either positive or negative, we know it’s usually very difficult to do. We know there are literally dozens of elements (variables) in our personal environment that could affect our health. So how do we go about narrowing it down to determine what it is in a person’s environment that is likely affecting his or her health?

The system described here does it in two ways, it uses the extreme reading breadth of the profile pattern (as discussed in article 3), to read an individuals test results along with the input of the environmental and doctor’s medical examination report. It was shown that this data was then fed into the national research center system and compared to millions of other patient’s health conditions, environments and test results.

This comparison, to the millions of other patients, would soon be very effective in narrowing the unknown element, or elements, down to the common denominator (or denominators) of what it is in the environment that normally affects people’s health in certain ways. Very few patients would have the exact same environment and health conditions. Comparing millions of patient’s health to their environmental exposures would provide a very effective screening process. The results of this research would then be fed back into the state diagnostic computers to diagnose specific individuals based on their individual profile pattern results and their individual environmental and physical examination reports.

This article discusses the key to success for any highly advanced health care system, and also the sophisticated features of the proposed medical system’s research center.

The Importance of Health and Wellness Including the Proper Use of Herbal Products

The significance and magnitude of health and wellness has positively come to the forefront of the health business in the preceding decade. With the baby boomer generation approaching or entering their senior years, strained health and medical services, and the understanding by greater numbers of individuals of the limitations of medical science, humanity has urbanized an increasingly outstanding attitude of responsibility towards one’s own health and wellness.

The meaning of health and wellness is reflected by the fact that diets,, fitness facilities, spas, weight loss programs, exercise programs and equipment, nutritional supplements and leisure groups of all sorts are now routine in our everyday lives. A number of of these changes are motivated by the great demands and long waits for treatment in the health care system, but also by the desire of the working generation for a more active lifestyle after retirement, with the hope of being fit and well enough to partake in their special activities. For these goals to manifest into realism the foundation of good health must be developed throughout life, not just to try to fix the damage after it’s been done.

On the other hand, herbal products are everywhere but before you start taking herbal products, ensure that they won’t act together with any other medications that you are already taking. You can inquire to your physician about that. For instance, some herbs will thin your blood and the other will thicken your blood. If you are one of those who need blood thinners to cope with the present health problem, adding either one will not skew your numbers, but may be life-threatening.

If you are using herbal products to deal with an illness, you may also want to be sure in relation to your diagnosis so you’re receiving the right herbal products for your health problem. For example, if you may want to combat bad breath, and then a visit to your physician tells that bad breath is caused by an infection in the sinus cavity. Therefore, a sinus infection will need a different product than bad breath.

Moreover, if you choose to use a processed herbal product, either for convenience or because the ingredients are not those found in your local supermarket, go after the directions and dosages vigilantly. Too much intake is not good for your health. Herbs are nature’s adaptation of drugs, and in bigger quantities they may have negative effects just like an overdose of pharmaceutical drugs will cause problems.

In summary, herbal products can be utilized both as therapy and as prevention for an existing health problem. Knowing the reasons you want to make use of herbs will help you decide on the exact products once you’ve found a highly regarded company. Ensure that the herbs you want to employ won’t cause interaction problems with existing medications that you need to take. It is very important to go after the directions to use herbal products carefully, so read the label.
