Caffeine in Green Tea Vs Coffee - Health Effect

Your Best Friend

A natural friendship involves loving and being loved. It means knowing that someone is on your side, wanting to help you, cheering you on, and always keeping your best interest in mind. A friend is someone you value, a comrade, a partner, someone who is dear to you, someone you want to spend time with, and someone you enjoy. You become someone’s friend by investing time in them and with them, and by sharing your life with that person.

Do you know God as your friend?

If we do not know God as a friend and if we are not confident that He thinks of us as His friends, we will be reluctant to tell Him what we need or to ask Him for anything. If we have a stiff, distant relationship with God, our prayers can be legalistic. But if we go to Him as our friend, yet without losing our reverence and awe of Him, our communication with Him will stay fresh, exciting, and intimate.

I encourage you to see God as your friend. Treat Him with respect and honor, but treat Him as your friend and learn to communicate with Him as openly and easily as you would with an earthly companion. He’s the best friend you’ll ever have.

“There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” #PROVERBS18:24

Steroids

The word steroid may scare you because of one reason or another. Steroids in general means a lot of things to people based on what they’ve heard, their job or their lifestyle. In the public eye the word steroid has a bad rap for some reasons but many people still can’t explain why. What comes to your mind when you hear the word steroid? Do you know that steroids can be very useful when used appropriately? What do I mean by using steroid appropriately? Let me explain myself; Steroids are really chemicals, often hormones made naturally by the human body and they work to help the organs, cells and tissues function properly. There are available synthetic steroids which are commercially made unlike the natural ones produced by human body. 

Steroids are generally classified into two types; you may have heard about corticosteroids and the anabolic-androgenic steroids. These are the two types known and I will explain the difference between them.

Corticosteroids are referred to as the “medicine” that fight inflammation in your body. They’re like your defense and fighter against any inflammation that attacks your body to make you sick. These corticosteroids are made in the labs but they do a wonderful job like the hormone cortisol. They basically stop the immune system process that trigger inflammation that causes human sickness. In medicine they can be used in treating asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema and other rash or skin diseases. Unfortunately, there are bad side effects that come from the use of corticosteroids. These side effects vary and depends on the dose used and how long a person was on it. Some of these undesirable side-effects are excess weight gain, puffy face, nausea, mood swings, insomnia, acne, thinning of skin, unusual hair growth, increased blood sugar. One of the serious side effects that deserves special mention is that corticosteroids will turn down your natural immune system if used for a long time. This will make you susceptible to infection because your natural immune system is weak to fight off and defend you against infections. If you’re on corticosteroid longer than three (3) months they will cause your bones to become brittle and susceptible to breakage, this problem is referred to as Osteoporosis. When steroids are used in children for too long it slows their growth and brings the risk of stimulating diabetes. After reading all these it’s scary to mess around with steroids without proper medical supervision.

Anabolic steroids are the man-made version of testosterone which is a male sex hormone that acts to help in building bigger muscles. Basically, anabolic steroids have performance and muscle-boosting powers that is why people misuse and abuse them. Unfortunately, the abusers are so ignorant of what they’re doing to their health because they take one hundred times (100X) the usual dose prescribed for medical problem. Their ignorance shows because they think more is better for them without any consideration to the adverse effects to their own health. Let’s consider some of the side effects of anabolic steroids: There are fluid retention, acne, blocks the body from making natural testosterone leading to smaller testicles with lower sperm count, infertility and breast growth. In women they cause irregular “periods” that changes and stops at random, development of male-pattern baldness, facial hair and deep voice. The consumption of very high dose will lead to mood swings, anger and aggressive behavior sometimes called “roid rage”. There is the possibility of liver, kidney and heart damage, increased low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol which leads to massive heart attack. This can happen to anybody at any age so don’t abuse steroids, just think and be kind to your own health. Your life is very precious and worth everything to you and your family and friends to be wasting in the pursue of vanity and temporary satisfaction.

If you’re getting this information for the first time and you happen to be on steroids already there is an important warning for you now. Listen, don’t stop the steroid abruptly. Doing that will try a major health problem for you. You will “crash” into restlessness, fatigue, mood swings, depression and other adverse effects. The way to stop the use of steroids is by tapering the dose down slowly over several days. You need to contact your Physician and Pharmacist who are knowledgeable about the appropriate way to taper and stop the use of steroids.

I hope the information in this article has helped educate you about the dangers of indiscriminate use of steroids. It is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent that should only be prescribed for a legitimate medical use and only under the supervision of a trained medical professional.

Heath Therapy (Thermotherapy)

HEAT THERAPY

Nature has provided us many things to live a healthier life but we tend to overlook many of the available resources because of ignorance or our belief that science is better than nature. I’m not saying that science is not good but what I’m trying to emphasis is that nature is filled with many things that can keep us healthy. In the developing countries of the world many people still look for the things in “nature” to heal them even though some of them overuse natural products to their own peril.

Heat is something that doesn’t need to be described for anybody but do you also know that heat can be used to treat certain ailments? The use of heat for treating illness is known as thermotherapy. There is also a process call “Cryotherapy” which is the use of cold to treat illness. But in this article my focus will only be on thermotherapy which I already explained is using heat to treat illness.

Heat can be very therapeutic in certain conditions but we need to know which conditions because it is not useful for every kind of illness. There are two kinds of heat we’re talking about; dry heat and moist heat. How does heat work for the healing process? Heat can help in treatment of certain diseases by raising the body temperature of the affected area and thus improving blood circulation, dilating the blood vessels and improving the flow of oxygen and nutrients to thereby healing the damaged tissues. Heat also stimulates the sensory receptors in the skin and decreases pain signal transmission to the brain making the patient feel less pain. Heat therapy facilitates the stretching of soft tissues around the spine, connective tissues and adhesion and decreases stiffness while increasing muscle flexibility. A research was conducted that found patients with lower back pain reported significant less pain with heat therapy (Morteza, D., Farahbod, F., 2014).

When using heat treatment, it is important to remember to keep it warm and not hot temperature to avoid burning yourself or someone else. Dry heat comes from sources like heating pad, dry heat packs and saunas while moist heat are from steam towels, moist heat packs or baths. There is also professional heat therapy from ultrasounds which is also therapeutic. Heat treatment works best when used in combination with other treatments recommended by your doctor or physical therapist. It is better to have a sustained longer treatment until the pain or problem goes away. Each treatment should last at least 10 to 30 minutes.

What kind of condition is heat therapy good for? The major benefits are for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neck and shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, stiffness, back and shoulder pain, hip and foot pain, muscle tension, spasm.

What is heat treatment not recommended for? You should not use heat on open wound, bruised or swollen injury, people with diabetes, dermatitis, vascular disease, multiple sclerosis, and deep vein thrombosis.

Heat therapy is very inexpensive and convenience and it works if done consistently. But if it doesn’t seem to help you after several trials you should contact your personal physician for more evaluations of your medical problem.

A new season with great potential for the Los Angeles Lakers with LeBron James. The last few years has been total disappointment as the Lakers has missed the playoffs. But the the signing of James with few supporting players this season looks to see the Lakers back to the NBA playoffs. I say go Lakers!
