Help for your Menopause Symptoms!


Menopause Help
 
Menopause is an important transition in women's lives. The intensity of symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, and mood swings that accompany menopause varies among women. Hormonal changes can cause havoc. Quality of life can be affected. However, there is hope for women who suffer during this important transition in their lives. A good start is to consider these fitness tips for dealing with menopause. Exercise during and after menopause offers many benefits:

·      Helps to prevent weight gain. Women tend to lose muscle mass and gain abdominal fat around menopause. Regular physical activity can help prevent weight gain.

·      Risk reduction of cancer and other diseases

Staying Hydrated can offset Mental Confusion in the Elderly

 

Never Underestimate the power of staying hydrated! 

Especially if you are a "Senior".

SeniorDrinkingWater

 Article Written By: Arnaldo Liechtenstein, physician
 
Whenever I teach clinical medicine to students in the fourth year of medicine, I ask the following question:  What are the causes of mental confusion in the elderly?
 
Some offer: "Tumors in the head". I answer: No!
 
Others suggest: "Early symptoms of Alzheimer's". I answer No!
 
With each rejection of their answers, their responses dry up.
 
And they are even more open-mouthed when I list the three most common causes:
- uncontrolled diabetes
- urinary infection
- dehydration
 
It may sound like a joke, but it isn't. People over 60 generally stop feeling thirsty and consequently stop drinking fluids.
 
When no one is around to remind them to drink fluids, they quickly dehydrate.
 
Dehydration is severe and affects the entire body. It may cause abrupt mental confusion, a drop in blood pressure, increased heart palpitations, angina (chest pain), coma and even death.
 
*This habit of forgetting to drink fluids begins at age 60, when we have just over 50%of the water we should have in our bodies. People over 60 have a lower water reserve.
This is part of the natural aging process.*
 
But there are more complications. Although they are dehydrated, they don't feel like-drinking water, because their internal balance mechanisms don't work very well.
 
*Conclusion:*
People over 60 years old dehydrate easily, not only because they have a smaller water supply, but also because they do not feel the lack of water in the body.
 
Although people over 60 may look healthy, the performance of reactions and chemical functions can damage their entire body.
 
So here are two alerts:
1) *Get into the habit of drinking liquids*. Liquids include water, juices, teas, coconut water, milk, soups, and water-rich fruits, such as watermelon, melon, peaches and pineapple; orange and tangerine also work.
 
*The important thing is that, every two hours, you must drink some liquid. Remember this!*
 
2) Alert for family members: constantly offer fluids to people over age 60. At the same time, observe them.
 
If you realize that they are rejecting liquids and, from one day to the next, they are irritable, breathless or display a lack of attention, these are almost certainly recurrent symptoms of dehydration.  Inspired to drink more water now??
 
Send this information out to others!  Your friends and family need to know for themselves and help you to be healthier and happier.  It's good to share!
 
*For people over 60*.  Sent to DPR Wellness from Steve Hughes of Body Wise.  Body Wise as a company is committed to health and wellness through educational blogs and newsletter.

'Tis the Season!

 'Tis the Season to be Mindful and Enjoy!

 
Here we go. We begin the season of OVERINDULGING. Stores are filled with an abundance of sweet treats. Brightly packaged in red, green, and gold foil are a variety of chocolates, fudge, cookies, and truffles. It’s amazing the variety of food items that can be covered with chocolate! Miniature Santas are made of marshmallow, caramel, mint creme, peanut butter, and toffee. Bells, balls, and trees. Sugar, fat, and calories. What a temptation it is to purchase bags of such treats and keep refilling the pretty bowl on the coffee table or on our office desk. We rationalize our actions: “It’s the holiday!”  or “It’s part of our tradition!”

At what point in our holiday celebrations did Hershey, Reese, Nestle, Ghirardelli

Wesley Miller Lost 50 Pounds in 68 Days.
 
Q: Congratulations, Wesley. A lot of people talk about losing weight but you took action and made it happen. What finally convinved you to to lose the weight?

Wesley: Labor Day 2020 weekend I was looking at myself in the mirror after getting off the scales weighing in at 228 pounds. This is when I decided to do something about it.

Q: Did you work with anyone to help you?

Wesley:  Yes, I did.  My consultant showed me how to follow a regimen (program) that kept me feeling full, eating healthier foods while steadily losing weight.  Having someone help you with accountability was also important.

Q: How long were prepared to try the weight loss program?

Wesley: I informed her I would give it 60 days. I started it on September 14th and ended on November 21. The skeptic in me was wrong about Elance. I lost an average of seven pounds a week. Staying consistent and focused on my 60 day timeframe helped me stay on track.  

Q: A lot of people would love to lose weight as quickly and easily as you did. Tell us how you accomplished it.

Wesley: I followed my given regimen that she created for utilizing Body Wise products for weight loss. I did a shake in the morning, followed 90 minutes later with a snack consisting of either apples, celery sticks with peanut butter and/or carrot sticks. I would eat a normal larger meal midday then I would have a shake in the evening at around six followed by the same snack protocol. I also increased my exercise timeframe.

Q: I heard your weight loss produced other health benefits, too.

Wesley: Even though I was ecstatic about my weight numbers there were other numbers that really won me over.

AUGUST 2020
LDL   160
Cholesterol   298
HDL   49
Triglycerides   327

NOVEMBER 2020
LDL   47
Cholesterol   122
HDL   60
Triglycerides   82

Q:How do you feel after your amazing weight loss experience? 

Wesley: I have never felt better in my life. I achieved my weight loss goal but my other numbers had me winning the lottery. On top of that, it tastes great and helps with skin elasticity. This skeptic highly recommends the Elance product line. It delivers!
