Why Heartbeats make Noise

Why Heartbeats make Noise

 

The circulatory system is responsible for breathing in human. The system comprises of the heart which is at the centre and blood vessels which are veins, capillaries, and arteries. All combine in the distribution of blood to other parts of the body, with the heart being the pump that sends the blood and nutrients. The heart keeps the body in good shape by pumping blood to every part of the body and removes the waste that is not needed by the body and carbon dioxide. The human heart is the engine room of the body and should be taken care of properly.

There are specific signs to observe for a failing or malfunctioning circulatory system, and they include migraines, pain in the leg, cold hands and feet, varicose veins, numbness, and dizziness. When failing circulatory systems is not taken care of, it might lead to health-threatening conditions such as stroke, kidney disease, high blood pressure and other death threatening situations. When the heart is functioning well, blood flows only in one direction; this is achieved by the synchronising of the valves and the pumping action of the heart. The valves ensure that blood flow is in one direction by opening and closing synchronously with the pumping action of the heart.

When the heart is performing its blood pumping activities, the valves opens as well as closes as this action continues. The opening and closing of the valve produce the sound of a heartbeat. The sound of heartbeat shows that the heart is doing its job. When you pay attention to the noise originated from heartbeat, you will notice there are two types. The first sound is as a result of the closure of a pair of valves which are known as mitral and tricuspid valves, while the second sound is gotten from the closure of another pair of valves called pulmonary and aortic valves. Both pairs of valves open to admit blood in a single direction and close to avoid the backing up of blood.

The heart has two chambers, the upper and lower chambers, the tricuspid and mitral valves separates both chambers of the heart. The valves are like the door through which blood passes through to the heart as well as the lungs. Contrary to what most of us used to think that causes the sound of a heartbeat, the noise from the functioning of the heart is not as a result of the beating of the heart or contracting but the functions of these mentioned valves. So now you know why you hear the sound of a heartbeat.

It is imperative to observe the nature of your heartbeat, because it may help you to identify any circulation malfunction. When detected early, circulatory system condition can be treated, and however, when they are not treated early, it may lead to a total system breakdown which may cause permanent damage and ultimately death.

It’s never too late, before addressing any issue related to your smile, gums, teeth, and other oral or in general health issues, consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai. A dental prophylaxis or cleaning as previously mentioned including our check-up every three to four months will allow Dr. Edderai to keep a watchful eye on your oral health and prevent cavities or minor problem before they start.

The Importance of Chaperoning in General Medical Practice

The Importance of Chaperoning in General Medical Practice

In medical practice, a chaperone is a middle person between a medical professional such as a doctor and a patient. They are adequately trained to act as an observer in a medical process performed by a professional on a patient. They are responsible for strengthening the doctor and patient relationship, as well as improving the standard of medical practice generally.

 

 

Chaperoning is an essential part of medical process and doctor because more than ever before, medical examinations has become more challenging for all the parties involved, the patient as well as the doctor performing the analysis. Chaperoning will help a patient to make the right decision, improve the communication level of doctors and their patients and they also enhance the autonomy of the patients.

Though this situation hampers the transparent communication that should exist between doctors and their patients hence affects the typical relationship that doctors share with their patients. This changes the ideal healthy doctor-patient communication making it more difficult and challenging for doctors to carry out proper consultation. In all, chaperoning is vital to doctor in general practice because it smoothens and afford doctors and patients to maintain a good relationship. This is because a professional chaperone works to strengthen an already established communication stronger and trustworthy.

There is no doubt that medical consultation is a challenge faced by both doctor and patient, no matter where it may be, whether in the hospital or community. To further create a smooth doctor to patient or vice versa, the need for more explicit communication with patients. This goes along with their ever increasing demand for autonomy and right to make personal decisions regarding their medical care and treatment; this has created a gap in the traditional role of a doctor-patient relationship. With such a scenario, sustaining an appropriate professional limit in the consultation process of doctor to patient becomes more difficult and challenging. Moreover, it is the responsibility of medical and health practitioners to ensure proper consultation between professionals and their patient exist, that is why chaperoning is very important to the general medical practice of doctors.

Chaperoning comes handy in various medical conditions which may include anxious and patients with vulnerability, a state where the patient cultural and/or religious view is different to a physical examination. Another situation where the role of a chaperone is inevitable is where a patient has a prior problem of recollection, or there is a misunderstanding between both parties. Patients that are rotated among medical professionals as a result of practices duty responsibilities and patients who are allocated to student or trainee doctors. Patients that find themselves in such situations and others need the service of a chaperone so as to receive the best medical care.

It’s never too late, before addressing any issue related to your smile, gums, teeth, and other oral or in general health issues, consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai. A dental prophylaxis or cleaning as previously mentioned including our check-up every three to four months will allow Dr. Edderai to keep a watchful eye on your oral health and prevent cavities or minor problem before they start.

Calcium at all Life’s Stages

Calcium at all Life’s Stages

At every life stage, there is a given amount of calcium that is needed because bones form the living part of the body, and as such, they need to be taken proper care of to help keep the body in shape. Having the right composition of calcium at every stage of life and a healthy balanced diet will help to enhance bone health no matter how old or young. A balanced diet contains the right quantity of calcium and other nutrients, and it is imperative to make sure you get the right amount of calcium at any specific stage of life because it plays a vital role in your daily routine.

 

 

At any stage of life, it is essential to know the amount of calcium that is required, and this is because if the body does not get the needed amount of calcium at a particular time, it will have to get from somewhere in the body, which happens to be from the bone. This action can lead to calcium deficiency which causes bone thinning, weaker teeth and ultimate decay of the teeth at later stages of life. Regrettably, most individuals especially children and adolescents don’t get the right or needed amount of calcium, and this calls for worry because calcium deficiency increases the chance of developing bone fractures as well as osteoporosis.

Having the required proportion of calcium during child’s development supports proper density of the bone. The function of calcium in the body is only for building healthy bones and teeth; however, calcium plays more roles in the body than just the bones and teeth. Calcium is needed for the development of a child’s heart, organs as well as nerves. This is because it aids in the control of contractions of the heart as well as the functioning of the muscles. Calcium also plays a significant role in metabolism and determines the movement of nerves impulse. The function of calcium is also felted in blood clotting.

Proper calcium intake helps in maintaining healthy blood pressure in pregnant women below the age of twenty-five, this is because their bone density is still increasing at this time. Calcium is needed explicitly at this stage of their life because the rate of developing hypertension increases in pregnant women, so taking the right calcium quantity can help to reduce their blood pressure and reduce the chance of experiencing hypertension. After achieving the highest level of bone density, the human bone begins to lose bone density, and all these occur during the later stages of life. The consumption of calcium can minimise this loss of bone mass in the later stages of life. Calcium intake also decreases the chance of developing osteoporosis later in life.

Calcium is among the most abundant minerals in the body, and it is needed at every stage of life. Make sure you maintain the required amount of calcium intake on a daily basis. Working with a nutritionist can be of great help to ascertain the needed amount of calcium.

It’s never too late, before addressing any issue related to your smile, gums, teeth, and other oral or in general health issues, consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai.

Vitamins B6 and B12 with increase in Risk of Lung Cancer

Vitamins B6 and B12 with increase in Risk of Lung Cancer

Supplements are consumed on a regular basis by a large number of the world population. Most times, these supplements help in protecting the body against harmful substances that may be fighting against its wellbeing. However, it becomes even more worrisome when what you once thought was helping to protect against a condition like cancer becomes the primary cause of such illness.

This is what happened in the case of vitamin B. Before now; the vitamin was thought to fight against cancer, which was why most adults consumed it as part of their regular multivitamin. However, with the result of a study that shows that taking vitamin B6 and B12 will increase the chances or risk of lung cancer it calls for worry.

 

According to a study carried out at Ohio University, the risk of lung cancer was seen to be doubled to quadrupled by the consumption of vitamins B6 and B12. The study also showed that the risk is higher among men that smoke and it is a concern in men only as it was not reported to have an effect on women.

The researchers involved in the study said it was clear why a high dose of B vitamin supplements would increase the lung cancer of smoker rather than reducing it because the vitamins were supposed to strengthen the immune system and being the most important means of preventing lung cancer as well. They concluded that small unnoticed tumours might grow faster and cause the condition because the excess B vitamins might be feeding on them.

The primary cause of worry is among smokers because, during the study, it was found that men that stopped smoking for ten years back before the study were found to have no increase in the risk of lung cancer; instead the risk was the same with men that never smoked. This goes a long way in determining the fact that smoking is the primary determinant why vitamin B consumption in men increases the risk of lung cancer.

However, if you are a lover of multivitamins, you have nothing to worry about, because according to the researchers, the number of doses involved was well above those found in a daily multivitamin tablet. So you can take your vitamins at the usual dosage and still get the health benefits of the supplement so far you are not a smoker. There is no doubt that smoking cause’s lung cancer, it will be great if as a smoker, you give up smoking especially if you consume vitamin B as well. Staying alive is the ultimate goal, it’s better to do everything possible to maintain a healthy life.

It’s never too late, before addressing any issue related to your smile, gums, teeth, and other oral or in general health issues, consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai.

Stevia, a Healthy Sugar Alternative

Stevia, a Healthy Sugar Alternative

Stevia has become a healthy alternative to sugar. The natural sweetener possesses no single calorie which makes it an excellent option especially for individuals treating diabetes. Stevia has been considered an ideal choice for sugar for so many reasons among them is its ability to control the level of blood sugar. Stevia is gotten from a South American plant known as Stevia rebaudiana also known as sweetleaf.

Over the years, the plant extract has been utilised in different diet drinks and foods such as yogurts, soda, desserts and candy among several others. It is believed to be sweeter than ordinary table sugar and has been considered a healthy substitute for most foods and beverages. Besides stevia being a healthy alternative to sugar, consuming the plant extract releases a protein known as TRPM5, a content that participates in the release of insulin as well as in taste perception.

 

There are a lot of benefits why stevia offers a better alternative to sugar; it aids in weight loss and a perfect option for those on a diet as well as those that have diabetes. Stevia is an essential option for people with diabetes because in such a situation, sugar is possibly their worst enemies, and they need to satisfy their craving for sweet things. There are so many other health benefits that stevia is known to offer besides the known ones.

When talking about the natural sweetener what comes to mind is its ability to lower blood sugar levels. The plant extract contains a compound known as steviol glycoside. This compound cannot be broken down or absorbed by the body, so as such it can only be flushed out of the human systems. Stevia increases the insulin resistance of the body, thereby stabilises the blood sugar, it also inhibits the absorption of glucose as well as enhances the health of the pancreas.

Using stevia as an alternative to sugar will aid in healing wounds even faster than normal, this is another great benefit of the wonderful plant extract. It does this by inhibiting the growth of certain dreadful bacteria. It is also believed to be very useful in healing athlete’s foot as well as sores. A compound known as retinoic acid is contained in stevia, this compound is very active in thwarting the development of wrinkles. The process is done by stopping the breakdown of the cells of the skin primarily elastin and collagen. By doing this, it reduces the production of sebum thereby enhancing skin cells lifespan.

These are among the several benefits that stevia offers to the human system. However, in everything, moderation is the key. So it is essential to consult your doctor before consuming the plant extract.

Remember………Before treating gum, tooth, or other oral problems consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai.

Longevity and Coffee Drinking

Longevity and Coffee Drinking

A lot has been said about the health benefits of drinking coffee. Recently, the advantage of the daily consumption of coffee was backed by studies that were done to examine the health benefits of drinking coffee. Several benefits have been associated with the constant drinking of the coffee brew. This explains why people that favour the frequent consumption of the drink live longer and has a lower death rate compared to non-drinkers of coffee.

Researches have been carried out, and studies have also shown that daily and frequent drinkers of coffee have reduced risk of heart problems, fewer stroke risk as well as decreases risk of diabetes. It also exposes the fact that taking coffee on a more regular basis will reduce the chances of certain cancers. However, the studies that have been done in regards to coffee consumptions have only focused on selected races (Asian Americans, African Americans, and Latinos), the probability of the brew having such similar effect on other races remains to be seen. According to a recently concluded study, it shows that people that consume more than four cups of coffee a day have a lower death rate compared to individuals that don’t drink coffee.

 

Before now, the negativity that surrounded coffee is the caffeine content in the brew; however, it has gone to show that the caffeine constituent of coffee does not inhibit in any way the health benefits of drinking coffee. It was shown that individuals that drank both the versions with caffeine and those without caffeine got similar health benefits from the consumption of coffee.

Though drinking coffee and longevity have something in common, this is not saying that non-drinkers will die early, and it does not necessarily support the over-consumption of the drink. It is also advised to drink in moderation. Also, non-drinking of coffee does not mean you have lesser chances of fighting heart-related illness, as there so many other significant aspects of healthy living that affects our overall life.

Coffee is a complex mixture of compounds that possess biological effects that aid in living a healthy life, this has been proven by several studies as well as researches. It contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties that aid in fighting illnesses such as the Parkinson disease and several others. Due to coffee comprising such compounds, regular and frequent drinkers do have an enhanced glucose control level of the systems, they will have a lower level of inflammations as well as possess a healthier lipid profile.

It is paramount to incorporate moderate coffee consumption into a healthy diet, and if you happen to be a non-lover of the brew, that’s alright because what is most important is not the coffee it’s about having a healthy lifestyle. But if you don’t have any problem drinking coffees, drinking a few cups of coffee a day will do you no harm; instead, it will be doing you a lot of good.

Remember………Before treating gum, tooth, or other oral problems consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai.

All about Chiropractic Care

All about Chiropractic Care

A Chiropractors is a trained doctor that work in the field of alternative or complementary healthcare. Chiropractors specialise in detecting and reducing misalignments of the vertebral subluxation that interfere with central nervous system function. They treat their patients by the adjustments of specific joints to assist in the restoration of posture, the functioning of the nervous system, proper maintenance of health as well as the alignment of the spine. Subluxations in the body can lead to inflammation of the joint and nerve root, and it can also lead to lack of motion which causes the degeneration of the joint. The best instrument a chiropractic doctors could have is his or her hands. They are professionals that are trained to utilise their hands carefully to adjust the joints of the body.

 

Chiropractic care has been in existence for over two thousand years; however, the practice has gained much recognition a little over hundred years ago. Ever since its popularity, chiropractic care has been known to be an active form of medical care. The chiropractic medical care practice did gain high reputation because according to many studies that have conducted regarding the method, it has been shown that it’s more financially feasible as it is safer compared to the usual conventional medical care that most individuals are used to. A lot of people have had or known who has had a chiropractic care, and there are known facts about this Medicare that most individuals may not be aware of. Contrary to the public perception of chiropractic care, evidence has shown that the benefits of the practice can be applied to not just neck and back pains, but can be used to alleviate many other symptoms not related to the spine.

Some of the possible symptoms a patient should look out for to know if he or she needs a chiropractic care include:

Asthma

Acid Reflux

Back pain

Back pain due to pregnancy

Bell’s palsy

Brain and central nervous system dysfunctions

Colic

Dental and visual issues

Epilepsy and other neurological problems

Frequent headaches

Frozen shoulder

Heart-related matters

Injuries due to trauma or accidents

Joint pains

Neck pain

Upset stomach

Sciatica

The duty of a professional chiropractor is to carry out an adjustment on the spine to move the misplaced vertebrae through the use of high techniques to free the pressure exhibited on the nerves. They are able to achieve this due to the intensive years of training in locating any spinal vertebrae that is misplaced such that it tends to inhibit the nerves that move through the spinal cord and as well as the spinal columns touching the glands, muscles, and some other organs of the body.

Chiropractic care is a highly technical form of medical care, as you wouldn’t allow a novice to treat you of any medical condition, so you should not let your not-trained friend carry out any form of chiropractic care on you. The chiropractic care is a worldwide known form of medical care and has been proven to be very active.

Kidney Stones

 

 

The kidneys are the organ that is responsible for removing waste from the blood before passing it back to the body while the waste is passed out from the body through urine. The kidneys are situated just behind the abdomen on either side of the spine. They are two bean shaped organs that measure around 4 inches in length. Kidney stones known as renal colic, nephrolithiasis is a kind of disease that affects the kidneys. It occurs when hard deposits made of minerals and salts form inside the kidneys. This condition has many causes, and it can affect the urinary tract, which starts from the kidneys to the bladder. The stones are formed when the urine becomes concentrated which then allows minerals to stick together after they’ve been crystallised. Kidney stones can affect one or both kidneys and are most prominent among people between the ages of 30 to 60.

While small kidney stones may go unnoticed and be passed out through urine without pain, however, a more severe condition may block the ureter and the urethra. This blockage may cause a stern pain in the groin or abdomen and may even develop into a urinary tract infection. The other main symptoms of the disease include experiencing blood in your urine (haematuria) which is caused by scratching of the kidney or ureter by the stones, constant urinating, feeling restless and inability to lie down still. Other notable symptoms include persistent back pain in the lower back region that is sometimes felt in the groin while the scrotum and testicles of men may hurt.

The presence of certain substances in urine, taking some medication and not taking enough water are some of the primary causes of kidney stones. The waste removed from the blood by the kidney can sometimes form crystals that collate inside the kidneys, with time, these crystals may develop to form a stone-like substance. When these elements are formed, the human system will try to pass it out through the urinary system, which is the kidneys, the kidney tubes as well as the bladder. People who consume low-fibre diets, diets rich in protein are more likely to experience reoccurring kidney stones. Individuals with a kidney stone history in their family, had only one functional kidney, treating conditions that are affecting the small intestine have a higher chance of developing kidney stones.

The smaller kidney stones can be passed out in urine, and with proper medication, its symptoms can be treated at home. However, the bigger and larger stones may require being broken into pieces with the aid of laser energy or ultrasound, they can also be removed directly through keyhole surgery. It is quite important to avoid having kidney stones in the first instance because it’s a kind of condition that resurfaces within five years of treating it. To avoid developing kidney stones, develop a habit of consuming plenty of water daily to avoid being dehydrated. It is also imperative to keep your urine clear in other to prevent the formation of kidney stones by waste products from the blood.

It’s never too late, before addressing any issue related to your smile, gums, teeth, and other oral or in general health issues, consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai. A dental prophylaxis or cleaning as previously mentioned including our check-up every three to four months will allow Dr. Edderai to keep a watchful eye on your oral health and prevent cavities or minor problem before they start.
