You probably know by now the extent of damage that heart disease has done on our modern society.
A stagnant lifestyle, bad eating habits, and constant stress have taken effect on us and our bodies. Men over 50 are the ones who used to be considered at most risk, but this has now changed. Young men, and young and old women, especially after menopause, are also becoming at risk of cardiovascular disease, be that heart attacks, chest pains, or stroke.
Some heart conditions are congenital (you are born with them) and they might go undiscovered if you don’t have regular check-ups, but most problems come later and can largely be avoided; they usually involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels - but other heart conditions, such as those that affect your heart's muscle, valves or rhythm - also are considered forms of heart disease.
The most common and known problem is heart attacks. You hear about it happening all the time, and sometimes it comes undetected; but most of the time, and because you might expect the chest pains and numbness everyone talks about, subtler symptoms your body gives you go unnoticed, such as shortness of breath, weakness in the legs, pain in the neck or jaw, stomach pain and indigestion.
It’s true that some people who are usually very healthy individuals can still end up having heart attacks, but that’s the exception and not the norm. Normally, a vegetable based diet, with fish about twice a week and meat once or twice, combined with 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise, are great for the heart’s health - provided you don’t smoke or have other unhealthy habits. You should know though, that if you have family history, are overweight, diabetic, have high blood pressure or cholesterol, then you are more at risk and should be much more cautious.
If you feel that you fit the description, or that you have any of these symptoms, please don’t hesitate to contact your doctor! It’s always better to be safe than sorry.Read More
You might have been dreaming about having children your entire life; maybe you decided to have them after you fell in love and got married. You tried to conceive, but it just wasn’t working. The doctor told you that there might be a problem. You tried many methods, from meds to surgery, and nothing worked… what now?
In this day and age, we are really fortunate that science has come up with a way to drastically increase the chances of pregnancy, and it’s called IVF, which stands for In Vitro Fertilization.
Do you know how it’s done?
Your doctor will assess you and your husband, and determine your reproductive health and if you’re eligible for IVF. What IVF does is combine eggs and sperm outside the body in a laboratory. Once an embryo or embryos form, they are then placed in the uterus. Since its introduction in 1981, IVF and other similar techniques have actually resulted in more than 200,000 babies!
IVF success rate depends on your body, your husband’s body, and your cycle; but it usually ranges from 20% to 40%. However, it does take a toll on you and your emotions. This is why you’d want to do everything you can to help it work, by making sure your body and your husband’s are ready, and by being honest with your doctor about your lifestyle habits to see if any of them can affect your chances of conceiving.
When it comes to emotions, they really might affect your chances either positively or negatively, so try to reduce stress before, during and after your IVF treatment, as stress can lower your chances of getting pregnant - so get massages, emotional support, and be around people and situations that make you happy and make you laugh!
With all said and done, and if you do choose to go through with IVF, what you should understand is that when you are going through the treatment, you are doing everything you can possibly do. You should feel really good about that, and you need to realize that there is very little – besides taking care of yourself - you can do that will make a difference in terms of the outcome, but there is a lot you can do in terms of how you feel about the process.Read More
