Bone Loss in Menopause

Bone Loss in Menopause

Bone loss in Menopause The word ‘Osteoporosis’ literally means ‘porous bone’. It is a condition where a person gradually loses bone material so that his or her bones become gradually more fragile. As a result, they are more likely to break. Bone is made of fibres of a material called collagen filled in with minerals- mainly calcium salts – rather like reinforced concrete. The bones of the skeleton have a thick outer shell or ‘cortex’, inside which there is a meshwork of ‘trabecular’ bone. Osteoporosis is a major public health concern worldwide. Although osteoporosis is more prevalent in women, it can also affect men. This disease can occur at any age and in any racial or ethnic group. However, it is more common in postmenopausal women, especially Asians and Caucasians. In Malaysia, it is estimated that by year 2020, about 3.3 million Malaysians will be above 65 years of age.…

Acid Reflux and Gastric Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Acid Reflux and Gastric Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

  Acid Reflux and Gastric Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) What is GERD? One of the most common conditions affecting many people today is termed ‘GERD’ or gastroesophageal reflux disorder. This condition is characterized by a burning sensation in the chest, throat or upper abdomen that includes the common term “heartburn.” Many prescription drugs have been created by the pharmaceutical industry that suppress acid secretion as an answer to what is truly a systemic problem. This results in raising factors that add to inflammatory events in the whole body, - thereby contributing to further diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and autoimmune disorders. An anti-inflammatory lifestyle has been shown to reduce acid reflux and it is important we make attempts to change our diet toward foods that are less reactive with the immune system.

Health Benefits of Water

Health Benefits of Water

The Health Benefits of Water Do you know that your body weight is approximately 60 percent water? Your body uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate its temperature and maintain other bodily functions.

There are always 101 foods in your list. Therefore, having someone on the outside tell you “these are the most important things to start with” and holding you accountable, is the shift that you have needed to help get you back to track.
