I don’t know what is wrong with my skin, but it doesn’t seem right, and I think that I should see a Manchester skin specialist to see what is going on with it. I have had these areas on my hand that have been losing skin and they are not healing. It has been going on for 8 months or more and they are still not healing.
But anyway, I am not really sure what to do about this. I hate to go see the doctor, but I am not sure that I really have that much of a choice at the moment. I am pretty sure that it has been too long though and this isn’t healing so I need to figure out something to get done with it. Continue reading
I need to find a dentist in Monterey and I really do not know how I should go about picking one. Of course in my home town, back in Las Cruces, New Mexico I have had the same dentist for the past twenty three years, aside from the three and a half years it took me to graduate from New Mexico State. When I was there I went to the dental students at the school of dentistry. I was not sure it was a good idea, but they never had to do anything dramatic. The Monterey dentist is probably going to have to do something pretty significant. When I was in college they just looked at my teeth and told me that they were fine, after I got them cleaned because I like having sparkly teeth for the swarms of beautiful young ladies you find on any college campus. I moved back home after graduation and got a great job in the insurance industry just like my Mom and my Dad. Continue reading
I had enough of pain in my back. I would go to the doctor and they would do tests. I have had x-rays, MRIs, nerve conduction tests and you name it. My back shows that I have some degeneration of the discs. My mom had it too. What I would not face was the part I had in my own pain. That is until I chose a chiropractor in Alexandria who helped me see my role in the cause of my own pain, and then went a step further to show me what I could do to fix my own pain.
Fortunately, for me, I was adamant about not having back surgery. I had a surgeon tell me he could operate. I looked at the real numbers of what my chances of living pain free after the surgery would be. Continue reading
I am definitely kind of annoyed by the fact that I have to deal with back pain every day of my life now. About 6 months ago, I fell down a flight of stairs and really messed up my back. I actually spent a day in the hospital, but the pain has not gown away. I am going to look at chiropractor in Alexandria to go see for my back problems and hopefully they will be able to do something to fix it for good. I would be very happy if I could stop dealing with back pain. I don’t think they will be able to get rid of it all the way, because the pain is pretty pervasive, but maybe they do a good job at getting rid of it.
I am really excited about the fact that I was just able to schedule an appointment tomorrow. Continue reading
It is not as though I am crippled by it or anything, but I think that I might be getting bursitis or arthritis in my joints lately. At first it was in my elbow, the left one mainly and I was thinking that I had done something to my bursa sac. Not really sure what that is or what it does, but that is where it hurt. I started to feel better after a friend of mine said for me to try these curcumin or turmeric supplement pills. I was skeptical and I am still, but it does appear that the inflammation has gone down. I suspect it is just as much a natural thing as any other cause. Of course so long as the thought is that it might be working I will keep on taking the stuff. You can be as skeptical as you like, but it is not as though I have much to lose by taking the stuff. Continue reading
I have lived here since I was a teenager, and I have probably passed by this Sacramento chiropractor clinic hundreds if not thousands of times. I never in a million years thought I would need a chiropractor. However, my wife and I took a ski trip and I hurt my back. I have always been in great shape. I have good genetics and an interest in physical activity. If you had asked me prior to going to a chiropractor what type of people I thought would use their services, I would have guessed most to be overweight and out of shape.
Don’t get me wrong. I do not tell anyone how they should look or how active they should be. Everyone can make their own choice. Most of my friends have plenty of extra padding. I do not look down on them for it. I just thought that people who hurt their backs were more likely to not do any athletic things. I was wrong. It turns out that people in great shape who are highly athletic have a lot of injuries. Continue reading
I have been planning this summer vacation since last winter, and I want to make sure that it is a great vacation. I think that my family will have a good time, but I am worried about myself. I am kind of fat right now, and it makes me feel ugly. I need to lose some weight, and even losing 10 pounds would help my confidence a lot. I have been reading the reviews for http://www.amazon.com/garcinia-cambogia-extract-potassium-capsules/dp/b00clrusf2/ for the past hour, and it looks like a product that could help me out. Continue reading
I like tea. My favorite is the stronger British blend of black tea. I like the orange pekoe and black blends too. However, my teeth do not like it. I have an iced tea container that is plastic. The drink stains the plastic so bad that I cannot even scrub off those spots that look rusty with stains. Now my teeth are even more porous than that plastic picture. Since I cannot scrub away the stains, I looked for the best teeth whitening system that I could use to keep my pearly whites shining.
I wanted something that would not damage my teeth or make them sensitive. I already had to use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth. I did not want to give up my favorite beverage I have been drinking it since I was a child. I used to drink it with sugar and then artificial sweetener when I got older. Now I just drink it without any sort of sweetener. I just like the taste of it. Continue reading
I heard that there is a new craze about this extract from a tree that is called Moringa, I suppose it is native to Africa, or something like that. I had never heard of it, but to be clear, that is just the genus name, I am not sure what the species name is. Anyway, I would like to make sure that I am able to purchase some of this stuff, because I am very curious to try it out, and to see what sort of health benefits it could confer upon me.
It apparently has a whole lot of nutrients in it, and that is what makes it so interesting to me at the moment. Continue reading
When I was given organic Rosehip Oil for face, I was admittedly skeptical at first. I’ve tried a lot of different cleansers over the years and for the most part I have found that they don’t work. As someone who has had to deal with acne as much as I have, it’s pretty common to desperately seek out some kind of product with the hope that it is going to be the cure that finally ends the frustration and stress which acne causes. Anyone who has had to cope with acne into their adult lives will tell you just how stressful it can be.
That’s why I was skeptical. I’ve no doubt spent over a thousand dollars in my lifetime on just acne products with little to no success to show for it. Continue reading
Anyone who has visited supermarkets or watched late night infomercials has probably heard of some product that claims to use herbs or other alternative medicine to treat something. The legitimacy of these may be questionable at best, but the actual practices behind Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are much more legitimate. In fact, many of these treatments and philosophies have been put into practice for over 5000 years now. Anything that stands the test of time for that long is worth taking seriously, which is why some extremely reputable physicians have started a singapore tcm clinic.
This is great news for the general public, because it makes this medicine available to almost everyone. Continue reading
Of course I am off this semester and I am spending some time in Singapore. That is where my girlfriend’s parents live. Her mother is a big shot at one of the banks here, has a office in the top of the Bank of America Plaza in Raffles Place. She has been real busy talking up how good a student I am and telling her parents that I am here to study tcm or traditional chinese medicine before I head off to Med School. Of course she is really trying to talk me, because every single person in her family is a real over achiever. She is two years younger than I am and we are both ready to go medical school, so I have to wonder if she is going to be finishing up her internship before I graduate to be honest. Continue reading
I am just the art guy’s intern. I am learning how they set up the ads, what you would call framing the ad. For instance the ad iwill have a caption, something like super argan oil for hair and skin. That is the message you are trying to convey, it tells you what you are selling and why you should pay for the stuff. Then you need to get the buyer’s attention and that is not so easy, obviously an American consumer sees and ignores thousands of ads in any given day. They are going to ignore just about anything that is like every other ad they have seen and it is pretty difficult to come up with some new idea. Continue reading
You probably have seen the TV commercials for those things seniors wear around their necks to call for help. One of those commercials has been even used in humor of all things! However, the situation is very serious. Many seniors benefit from the immediate access to medical help that a medical alert system provides. You just press a button and emergency services are dispatched. However, more than just seniors can benefit from the technology.
Diabetics who have difficulty with low blood glucose levels, and those with seizure and other disorders can benefit from having a medical alert system. Continue reading
I am starting to think that I am going to go bald if I do not do find out what to do. Of course there is only one type of balding which can be remedied to my knowledge. If you have male pattern baldness, then you can fix it with Rogaine. The active ingredient in that is apparently something which is called Kirkland minoxidil. I am not positive that it is the type of baldness that I am getting, but it seems to be the most likely solution based on what I have read. I am wondering if you need to get a prescription for that stuff. It sort of seems like you might need to do it, because this stuff has some relatively serious side effects. Most of what I have heard indicates that you should be careful with the stuff. Continue reading
I think that I am going to try to improve my appearance and make it so I looked a bit younger than I do right now. I do not like the thought of aging, but I guess that it is something that everyone has to go through. Eventually, I think that they will understand the genetics of aging to the extent where they will be able to stop it. But it probably won’t happen in my lifetime. Anyway, I am looking into this laser clinic in Singapore that a good friend recommended to me. I want to know more about it, to see if it is something that I would do.
I must admit that on the surface, the idea of using lasers on my body does scare me. Continue reading
That is an interesting question. I asked it myself when I was down there on vacation and this shop keeper tried to sell me some. Of course I was with my girlfriend and she thought it was absolutely hilarious that he was trying to sell me this stuff. Jamaican Black stone is apparently made from tree sap and it is a herbal remedy which is supposed to make you last longer sexually. You rub it on your penis and that is supposed to stop premature ejaculation and obviously it is supposed to prolong the act of sex as well. One thing is pretty much the same as the other thing to put it bluntly. I could not really understand the guy exactly, he was Jamaican and while he was speaking English, it was not English as they speak it in High Point NC or any other place where I have been before.
He was obviously laying it on thick and having some fun too, probably trying to entertain Emily. Continue reading
If you want to do something nice, you should send your wife on a spa adventure at an aesthetic clinic. I would recommend that you just get her some sort of gift card or certificate for her to get what she wants. This is because a clinic like this is a place where real makeovers are done. It is not just massages and stuff. No, they have procedures to remove fat from one area or put it into a place she thinks looks lean. Being a guy, and you know how guys are, I’m thinking lips and hips. You get the lipo injections in your lips, and you get liposuction from your hips. Of course, I would not make jokes like that in mixed company. Continue reading
Warts are ugly. If they show up on skin that is normally out there for public view, you will want to cover up all the time if you can’t get the them removed. I wanted it removed. It is like a bullseye target directing people to look right at it. Warts can really make you self-conscious. Though they have absolutely nothing to do with your personal hygiene practices, people still associate them with that. This is why I was looking for a detailed Wartrol review to see if it was a product worth buying to get rid of this wart.
I considered the stuff in the pharmacy section and home remedies for easy wart removal. I considered how well that freezing product would work, and I looked at using plain old duct tape to pull it off. Continue reading
Recently, I feel like my husband has been growing more and more distant. I am not sure what is wrong with him, but he does not act like the same man that he used to be; I am afraid that he has become someone different than the man that I fell in love with and married. I do not know what to make of the situation, but I think that I should look into marriage counseling in Fort Collins as it might be the only way to save our marriage.
I really do not want the marriage to fall apart, because we have a child together, and the kid is still pretty young. I think that it is important for a child to be raised by both of their parents. However, I am just worried about what my husband might be doing. Continue reading
I have a short stay down here. It is a nice place to stay, but this is a tropical country and there is a risk of tropical diseases. I have come down here to replace the guy who had been doing the job. He contracted malaria down here, but he seemed to be better the other day. He was taking some stuff called artemisinin which is called some thing else in traditional Chinese medicine. I guess it works faster than other treatments for malaria. At any rate I have not found it very difficult here. Things are very relaxed and I like it a lot. The job itself was nothing, because everyone seems to know exactly what they are doing. In fact I suspect that they could have done just fine with or without me. It was a bit boring to get there and realize that they did not seem to need me or the guy who was out sick. Continue reading
I found a good dentist in Castle Hill that I am comfortable with my whole family using. Our old dentist was not really the best for those of us, me to be specific, who are afraid of dentists. I suppose he meant well, but humor when you are scared out of your wits is not very helpful. Our new dentist understands the fear some people have of dentists, and accommodates it. He is very patient putting you at ease as soon as you see him. Over time I have been able to do more without the anxiety I used to have when seeing the dentist. Our daughter is the same way as me.
Some people are afraid of clowns. Some people are afraid of spiders. I am afraid of dentists. It is not even the occasional discomfort. Continue reading
At the moment all I can do is wait for the book to arrive, but I have my first commission as a professional write. It is a pretty simple job that does not pay very well. I have to write a Reverse Diabetes today review for an online magazine. Of course they will have to accept it before I get paid and so this depends upon how well I can do it, and I do not have a lot of time to do it. So I need to have the book get delivered very soon so that I can start reading it, make my notes and then start forming the content of the review.
