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.

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.

 

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

The Deadly Anorexia Nervosa

The Deadly Anorexia Nervosa

As much as it is a self-imposed starvation, the effects of Anorexia nervosa can be deadly. Anorexia may appear not to be dangerous; however, the symptoms develop over a certain length of years. People with life experience predisposition, emotional issues as well as individuals with specific genetic situations are more susceptible to the medical condition. Anorexia nervosa often develop among females during their teenage years, though some eating disorder symptoms have been discovered in boys and girls in their pre-teens development years. The medical condition often occurs when an individual is overly concern about food intake to maintain the shape of their body and weight loss that leads to starvation.

 

Distinguishing the early signs of Anorexia nervosa with dieting and eating habit can be difficult because often, the symptoms can be attributed to other medical conditions making it more difficult to diagnose in the early stages. However, some physical examinations can review eating disorder symptoms some of them include; abnormal blood count, fatigue, amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), severe loss of weight, hair breakage, dehydration and loss of bone calcium resulting in broken bones. Other notable symptoms include abnormal heartbeats, heightened liver enzymes, constipation, inability to tolerate cold, low blood pressure, seizure as well as dizziness. Anorexia nervosa condition also has this signs, brittle nails, appearing thin and development of dry skin. It takes a professional to observe these signs and distinguish it from other medical conditions.

People with Anorexia nervosa will resist a change in eating habit, exercise excessively as well as restrict intake of food in a bid to continue weight and to prevent weight gain. Often, people with the condition engage in binge eating or purge soon after eating regular meals, and when the situation is not adequately treated, it might lead to being skeletal and they will also perceive themselves of being overweight. The causes of the condition are more alarming than an obsession with the shape of the body or having an unhealthy view of food. Though Anorexia is a self-imposed form of starvation, the process the medical condition takes is much more than just food. Someone suffering from the disease believes achieving a certain thinness or controlling the body and appetite is the means through which they can gain recognition and self-worth.

Though Anorexia is a psychological condition, if it is not curbed early, it behaves like a physical disease. Anorexia tends to worsen when the thoughts of foods are continually overshadowed by the feeling of being in shape. The effects are different depending on the severity. The worst impact of the condition is death, and other physical effects are often non-reversible, and these effects often lead to death among people with Anorexia. People with Anorexia usually have a disruption in career, and there is also the possibility of suicide. Other effects include loss of connection to religion or faith, a shutdown of vital body systems, and they might be forced to withdraw from school. It can lead to brain damage, infertility as well as heart attacks and isolation from family and friends.

Remember………Before treating gum, tooth, or other oral problems consult with Dr. Jean-Jacques Edderai. A dental check-up every three to four months will allow Dr. Edderai to keep a watchful eye on your oral health and prevent cavities before they start and add to your physical wellness.

Surprising Foods That May Raise Your Cholesterol Levels

Surprising Foods That May Raise Your Cholesterol Levels

 As we age, the food we consume becomes more important to us than ever before. At a younger age, we certainly don’t think about the harm consuming particular food can cause, however, this start to fade away as we get older. The reason is that most conditions that humans suffer as they age are as a result of what they consume, which is why it is paramount to monitor the things we eat because some of these foods may aggravate certain health conditions that are present in the human as well as bring in new ones.

One of such conditions that require watching the things we consume is high cholesterol and heart disease. These conditions are a serious concern to a lot of people around the world and as such proper care should be taken to avoid the occurrence or to maintain the already existing condition. Many foods that we take tends to raise the blood cholesterol levels, and to be on a better side; such things should be avoided. It becomes even more troublesome when some of the foods we usually believe are good for our health is now culpable of raising our cholesterol levels.

We already know that consuming some specific food such as high-fat meat and butter raises cholesterol levels, but what we don’t know is that there are other foods that we think are okay for consumption that increases our cholesterol levels. Some of these foods will be discussed briefly below.

Whole-Fat Diary Foods

There is no doubt that dairy foods are rich in nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, proteins, and calcium; however, it becomes an issue if you go for a full-fat choice. You will be getting a dose of saturated fat when you opt for whole fat dairy food which is a red flag if you don’t want your cholesterol level to rise.

Liver

Liver can be a healthy food for a lot of individuals because it is a type of food that is high in iron. However, liver can be a source of increasing the cholesterol levels of others because it is the body’s principal source of cholesterol. Cholesterol is stored in the liver hence it is capable of increasing the cholesterol levels when consumed by some individuals.

Applesauce

It is said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, not when the apple is conventionally grown. Apples that are grown conventionally contains high amount of pesticides that can cause metabolic syndromes as well as obesity. Also, most applesauce makers often rip off the fibre-rich back of apples and add sweeteners which makes it a processed food; such foods are incredibly high in sugar which reduces its fibre content making it a culprit to increase cholesterol levels.

Nuts

Nuts are often known to be a good food that can be taken instead of snacks; however, not all nuts are good. It is paramount to know that all nuts are created differently and there saturated fat levels are also different. It is essential to choose the nut you consume because you may be increasing your cholesterol level when you consume nuts such as Brazil nuts which are very high in saturated fats.

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.

Dietary Fibre – For Diabetes, Heart and General Health

Dietary Fibre – For Diabetes, Heart and General Health

Dietary fibre is the part of a plant that the body cannot absorb or digest. They are also called roughage. They are not like other food components that the body can absorb, instead, when we take fibre, it passes through the stomach, small intestine, and colon straight out of the body. There are two types of fibre, soluble and insoluble fibre. The soluble fibre is the type of fibre that dissolves in water while the insoluble fibre does not dissolve in water. The soluble type of fibres dissolves in water to form a material like gel, and they help in lowering glucose level in the body as well as blood cholesterol level.

The foods that soluble fibre can be found include apples, carrots, oats, psyllium, beans, barley, peas, fruits, and citrus. The function of the insoluble type of fibre includes promoting the movement of materials via the digestive system and helps individual’s that are battling with constipation by increasing stool bulk. The sources of insoluble fibre include vegetables, beans, whole wheat flour, nuts and wheat bran. Though they are not digested by the body, consuming dietary fibre is beneficial to the human body in so many ways.

One of the ways that fibre benefits the body is by normalising the movement of the bowel by increasing the weight and size of the stool we pass out, hence also helping in maintaining a healthy bowel. Fibres contribute to decreasing the cholesterol level of the body. They contribute to decreasing the blood cholesterol level by lowering the low-density lipoprotein, and they also have so many other benefits related to the heart such as reducing inflammation as well as blood pressure.

In individuals with diabetes, soluble fibre has been found to slow the absorption of sugar and assist the blood sugar level, while the insoluble fibre reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Foods that are rich in fibre tend to occupy the stomach more than fewer fibre foods, which means it reduces the quantity of food that we consume, therefore, helps in maintaining a healthy weight. Meals with a high composition of fibre possess a lower amount of calories compared to its low composition meals, which also is a gain towards maintaining a healthy weight.

A fibre rich diet especially the insoluble type gotten from cereals can minimise the risk for type 2 diabetes. Diets rich in a high-fibre meal are linked to a reduced risk for other common digestive system cancers, including pharynx, mouth, and stomach. Fibre, particularly soluble fibre, is a significant part of any healthy heart diet. A high fibre consumption can reduce your risk for metabolic syndrome, a group of risk factors linked to coronary heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Eating a diet high in fibre improve cholesterol levels by reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol.

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.

The Basics of Bell’s Palsy

 

The Basics of Bell’s Palsy

 

 

 

Bell’s palsy is a health condition that affects the muscles on one side of the face. It causes the weakening or paralysing of the muscles on the part of the face it affects, making the part of the face to become stiff or droop. This condition is usually caused by trauma to the facial nerve also known as or called seventh cranial nerve. Bell’s Palsy can affect anyone; however, individuals recovering from viral infections and those that have diabetes are more susceptible to the health condition. The symptoms of Bell’s Palsy appears like that of stroke; however, this medical condition is not something that should be a problem to anyone, because most of the time the symptoms are often temporary with very few percentage having a permanent trait.

 

 

The symptoms of Bell’s Palsy should not be mistaken for a stroke, though it may appear alike, however, in the case of stroke, which causes weakness of muscles on the face may also cause muscle weakness in other parts of the body. The primary cause of the condition has been believed by doctors to be due to damage to the facial nerve that causes swelling. The facial nerve moves round the skull through a tiny bony area, when the nerve gets swollen, it affects the skull because it pushes hard against it and causes the nerve to malfunction and leads to the restructuring of the face. Another notable culprit is viral infections, which have been tipped to be one of the leading causes of Bell’s Palsy. The herpes simplex 1 virus, a virus that causes cold sores has been noted to be responsible for the infection.

Bell’s Palsy is a medical condition that its symptoms come out suddenly. It can happen overnight, you may be all right the night before going to bed, but will wake up with the symptoms of the disorder. However, before the actual sign may surface, some individuals may experience pain in the back of their ear two days before, while some people may hear sound louder than normal some days before they experience the main symptom of the infection. The usual symptoms include drooling, twitch of the facial muscles, inability to blink or close the eyelid, pain or numbness behind the ear. Others include decreased sense of taste, lesser or more eye water, difficulty chewing.

The typical recovery period of Bell’s Palsy in some individuals is just a couple of weeks, the symptoms, drooling and weakness of the facial muscles get to their peak within two days. Some people who develop the condition may take up to three months to completely recover from the condition while some other will require a longer time before they recover fully from the infection, while in few scenarios the deformation may remain permanent. Diagnosing Bell’s Palsy is not easy as there is no proven method of testing for it, in most cases, your doctor will only determine if you have the infection after ruling out other conditions.

Since there are no definite ways of testing for the Bell’s Palsy, there aren’t any medications to stop it yet. However, if a condition is caused by the herpes virus of by shingles, antiviral drugs may be administered, though there is no research backup to the potency of the medication.

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.

Consuming Red Meat is it Good or Bad for Your Health?

Consuming Red Meat is it Good or Bad for Your Health?

In the history of nutrition, red meat remains one of the most controversial foods.

 

Despite the fact that humans have been consuming red meat throughout evolution, some reasonable portion of individuals still believes that it can cause harm. The red meat our ancestors ate back in the day, is so different from the meat we consume today. In time past, animals ate so much of natural foods, they roamed free and ate grass, insects and everything green. They were free to feed on their own, and they ate green grass and various other edible plants.

The meat gotten from these animals of days before now are entirely different from the meat derived from most animals of now. The red meat from a naturally feed cow cannot be compared with the meat gotten from a cow that was born and raised in a factory and consumed grain-based feed. This processed animals have received different chemical alterations and most importantly, growth-enhancing antibiotics and hormones.

One notably disease that has been associated with consumption of red meat is heart disease. The reason is that some red meat contains high amount of saturated fat which happens to be a primary culprit to increase of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL)levels as mentioned in our last week blog. It has also been said that consuming red meat increases the risk of cancer especially colorectal cancer. Red meat contains heme iron (The iron-containing molecule in hemoglobin that serves as the site for oxygen binding), and this compound can damage cells, which leads to cancer. The saturated fat that this meat contains has also been linked to causing cancers of the breast and colon. And when red meat is cooked, carcinogens are formed; also, all these have been attributed to cause or aggravate cancer in humans.

It’s not all bad about consuming red meat; it does have health benefits. Red meat gives protein that helps in building muscles and bones. Not only that, the heme iron that red meat contains is easily absorbed by the human body, and this iron is needed by women during childbirth. Red meat is also rich in Vitamin B12, which is responsible for producing DNA and keeps the red blood cells and nerves healthy. It is also very rich in zinc that helps the immune system to perform well. Red meat may contain some amount of calories, however, consuming it gives you more than ten other nutrients other than the calories.

Red meat contains numerous vitamins and minerals that are essential for our health and can work as a well-balanced diet. That red meat has been associated with some health threatening diseases does not mean you should give up on eating it. You just need to make a better selection and portion decisions. Avoiding any form of processed meat such as bacon, deli meats, sausages, ham, and hot dogs is a great way of choosing the right red meat to consume.

Properly cooked and unprocessed red meat is very healthy, as long as you’re choosing grass-fed red meat employing healthy cooking methods avoiding charred pieces, there is nothing really to worry about consuming red meat.

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.

What you need to know about

……What you need to know about

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.
