WOMEN'S HEALTH: Strictly 40 And Above by sandyo: 11:48pm On May 23, 2018

My name is Sandra Okocha, I am a Health and Wellness Consultant and a blogger.

Over the past 3 years, I have had quite a number of people, mostly women above 40, reach out to me with complaints that are more or less the same.
I have since concluded that a lot of women, especially above 40, suffer greatly because they were ignorant about the symptoms to look at for to help them overcome impending health challenges as the age.

Some others are already going through serious health challenges with absolutely no solution in sight.

I am starting this thread primarily for the above-stated class of women with a view to providing SOLUTIONS to health challenges, answering whatever questions you might have and providing a platform where experiences can be shared.

Please feel free to reach out to me either through this thread or privately using 09083813724 or info@healthandbeauty102.com.

Healthy Aging

What's Normal Aging?

You have a lot of say-so in how you feel as you grow older -- from your heart and eyes to your skin and bones.

You can enjoy a better body by knowing what’s natural as you age and what’s not and by learning simple steps you can try to delay or lessen the changes.

Your Heart Works Harder
As you get older, your blood vessels and arteries become stiffer. Your heart has to work harder to pump blood. This can lead to high blood pressure and other heart problems.

Try this: Stay active. Walk, run, swim -- even a little moderate exercise each day can help you stay at a good weight and keep your blood pressure down.

Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to keep your heart healthy. Manage stress. Get enough sleep. 7 to 8 hours of rest each night can help repair and heal your heart and blood vessels.

Your Skin Feels Different
You might notice that your skin feels drier and less supple than it once did. That’s because your skin makes less natural oil as you age.

Also, you sweat less, and you lose some of the fatty tissue just below the skin. This can make it seem thinner.

You may also notice wrinkles, age spots, and skin tags, or tiny growths of skin.

Try this: Hot water dries skin out, so take warm baths and showers.

Wear sunscreen and protective clothing when you’re outdoors. Check your skin often and tell your doctor if you notice changes, such as moles.

If you smoke, this is another good reason to try to stop. It can cause wrinkles.

You Find It Harder to See and Hear
You may find it hard to focus on objects up close. You might need reading glasses for the first time. Perhaps you see more glare or find it hard to adapt to abrupt changes of light.

When it comes to your hearing, you could have a hard time following conversations in a crowded room or hearing at high frequencies.

Try this: Get your vision and hearing checked regularly. Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes outdoors. Wear earplugs to protect against or block loud noises.

There are tested and proven supplements that can help to manage your health effectively as you age. But I can't share that on this platform because they did not pay for advert... smiley

Re: WOMEN'S HEALTH: Strictly 40 And Above by sandyo: 11:23am On May 24, 2018

Picking up from where we left off yesterday on HEALTHY AGING

Your Teeth and Gums Change

You might notice your gums seem to pull away from your teeth. Some medicines make your mouth feel drier. Dry mouth might put you at higher risk for tooth decay and infections.

Try this:
Each day, brush twice and floss once to get rid of food and plaque between your teeth. It’s the best way to help prevent infection. Also, see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.

Your Bones Become More Brittle

As early as your 40s and 50s, your bones begin to weaken. They become less dense and more brittle. This increases your risk of fracture.

You might even notice you seem to be shorter. In fact, beginning in your 40s, you might get shorter by 1 to 2 inches.
That happens when the disks in your spine shrink.

Your joints might feel stiffer.
That’s because your ligaments, the cords that bind your joints together, often become less elastic. As the tissues between your joints break down, you may develop arthritis.

Try this:

Make sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D. Good sources of calcium in your diet include dairy products, almonds, and vegetables such as broccoli and kale. Your doctor may also recommend calcium supplements.

Vitamin D is vital to bone health:
Some people are able to get enough of this nutrient by spending time in sunlight. You can also get it from tuna, sardines, egg yolks, and milk. Ask your doctor whether you need a supplement.

Going to the Bathroom:
You might find it harder to control your bladder. This is called “urinary incontinence.” It happens to an estimated 10% of people 65 or older.

Many of these people get a little leakage when they cough or sneeze, but some lose a large amount of pee before they can get to the bathroom. For women, menopause can be a factor. For our husbands, an enlarged prostate might be the issue.

You might also notice that you’re not as regular as you used to be. Some conditions, such as diabetes, can slow down your bowels.
Some medicines might make you constipated. These include diuretics, which help you pee, and iron supplements.

Try this:
If you get the urge to “go” a lot, see your doctor. In most cases, symptoms can be controlled or even cured.

Try to avoid caffeine, alcohol, sodas, and foods high in acid. These can make the condition worse.

Kegel exercises can tighten your pelvic floor muscles and may help with bladder control. Squeeze as if you’re holding your pee. Wait five seconds, then relax for five seconds. Do this four or five times in a row several times a day. Give us a call for a tested and proven solution, contact at the end of the post.

To avoid constipation, eat plenty of high-fiber foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Drink lots of water. Try to exercise every day. It can help get your bowels moving.

It’s Harder to Keep Your Weight Down
As we age, muscle turns to fat, and that burns fewer calories. So even when we eat fewer calories, we stay at our current weight.

Try this:
Get some moderate exercise every day, such as a brisk walk or lifting light weights. It will help you keep your weight steady. Check with your doctor to see how much activity is right for you. follow our other thread operation weigh less on naira land or give us a call or DM-contact info at the end of this article

Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins such as fish. Stay away from sugar and foods that are high in saturated fat. And eat smaller portions. You probably don’t need as many calories as you once did.

Your Sex Life Changes, Too
During menopause, a woman’s vaginal tissues become drier, thinner, and less elastic. It might make sex less pleasurable. Her breasts tend to lose muscle and might begin to sag. Contact us for a tested and proven natural solution to help you with these challenges... contact is at the end of this article.

Also as our husbands' age, their levels of the hormone testosterone go down. They make less sperm and may have a lower sex drive. They might also find it harder to get or keep an erection.

Try this: Talk to your health consultant or better still contact us. we can prescribe tested and proven natural solutions to ease physical symptoms and ramp up your desire for sex.

We can’t turn the clock backward. But with patience, care, and smart lifestyle changes, we can make the most of our bodies as we age.

Eating just This One Thing Daily; will Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease

A new study published in the journal Heart has found that eating one egg every day;

can significantly reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases.

If you're worried about heart disease, there’s a lot that you can do to give your cardiovascular health a boost.

Cutting out smoking, even if it’s just one a day, is one of them.

Walking for just 40 minutes several times per week is another (especially for post-menopausal women).

Going to the sauna on a regular basis helps, as does eating the right food.

Now, a new study, published in the journal Heart, has found that eating one egg every day;

can significantly reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases.

While eggs have long been considered a staple in a healthy diet;

they’ve also gotten a bad reputation as of late due to their high cholesterol.

And previous research on the link between heart health and eggs have had relatively small sample sizes.

On the other hand, study, led by Canqing Yu, associate professor at Peking University School of Public Health in Beijing.

Analyzed the results of a whopping 416,213 Chinese adults between the ages of 30, 79 over the course of  9years.

A little over 13% of these participants said they ate an egg every day, while 9% abstained from them altogether.

The results found that the daily egg eaters had a 26% lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke,

a 28% lower risk of dying from this type of stroke,

and a 12% reduced risk of ischemic heart disease.

The study has its drawbacks, most notably that it’s purely observational;

therefore does not control for other factors that might have impacted the heart health of its participants.

Yu herself noted that translating the results to an American audience is complicated;

by the fact that the Chinese have a very different overall diet than ours.

Still, the results suggest that eating one egg a day, or slightly less, is beneficial to a healthy heart,

because they are packed with high-quality protein and other disease-fighting nutrients.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends eating one a day as well in order to get all of the benefits;

while limiting your daily cholesterol intake to 300 mg.

Re: WOMEN'S HEALTH: Strictly 40 And Above by sandyo: 4:06pm On May 25, 2018
7 Amazing Health Benefits of Saunas
Saunas have long been known to have mystical healing properties, and in places like Scandinavia and Eastern Europe;

their popularity is so widespread that many people have them installed in their homes or backyards.

A brief history:
Saunas were once very popular all over Europe, but when plague spread in the 1500s;

its popularity died out everywhere except Finland (which was spared of these communicable diseases),

which is why the sauna is now so closely culturally associated with that country.

A traditional Finnish sauna is a small, wooden room, in which wood is burned for several hours,

and the smoke is released, leaving behind an arid, extreme heat that hovers between 160 and 220 degrees Fahrenheit.

One would sit in the sauna for no less than five but no more than thirty minutes,

sweating and occasionally throwing water from a bucket onto a pile of hot rocks to give off steam and a sense of increased temperature,

then emerge to either jump into an ice pool, rinse off with a cold shower, or, if you’re very traditional, jump into a mound of fresh snow.

While it may look a bit bizarre to an insider, the process is not only fun, but it has several incredible health benefits.

1. It Increases Blood Circulation
The study used 102 people in their 40s and 50s who did not have heart disease but did have risk factors for it,

such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or obesity, and exposed them to a single Finnish sauna session.

They found that the just one session made an average participant’s blood pressure drop by seven points,

elasticized their arteries, and helped their heart rate go from 65 bpm to 81.

Dr. Joshua Liberman, a cardiologist, and governor of the American College of Cardiology’s Wisconsin;

said that the long-term cardiovascular benefits of frequent saunas sessions can be attributed to the way in which extreme heat in small doses causes the blood vessels to relax and blood flow to increase.

2. It’s Good for Your Heart
According to a new study from the University of Eastern Finland,

a 30-minute sauna session can have the same effects on your heart and blood vessels as moderate exercise,

which is why those who frequent the sauna tend to have lower blood pressure, an increased heart rate, and lower risk of heart disease.

The sweating, researcher Tanjaniina Laukkanen explained, has “a natural diuretic effect —

lowering blood pressure and decreasing the workload of the heart.”

3. It’s Relaxing

Anyone who’s ever stepped inside the sauna at their gym knows lying with your eyes closed in this warm,

the dry room can be extremely meditative, and that’s part of what makes it so therapeutic.

It helps that you can’t really bring electronics with you into the sauna as well,

allowing you to truly escape and unwind from the outside world.

4. It’s Good for Your Skin
The sauna can help “open up your pores and increase blood and lymphatic circulation, which will effectively aid in softening your skin.

“You will notice a healthy pink glow in your skin, which will make you look younger,

so not only will you feel good but you will also look rejuvenated.”

A single session can also get rid of blackheads, and flush out toxins, thereby leading to smooth, healthy skin.

5. It Can Help You Lose Weight
While it won’t make you burn fat, the sweating that you do in the sauna does help you lose a bit of water weight,

which will make you feel considerably lighter, especially after a weekend of heavy drinking.

6. It Keeps You Sharp
In a more surprising discovery, Laukkanen’s team found that sauna regulars had lower rates of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia,

thanks in large part to the fact that the sauna lowers your blood pressure.

“Both the heart and the brain need good blood vessel function,” Laukkanen said. And for more instant health fixes

7. It’s a Cultural Experience
Many different cultures have their own version of the sauna.

You’re probably already familiar with the Turkish Hamam, or steam room, in which

ambient steam is used to help open up the mucous membranes in the body, thereby helping you breathe.

In Korea, you’ve got the jjimjilbang, a segregated public bathhouse filled with hot tubs and kilns (thermally insulated chamber)

filled with jade, salt minerals, and other healing properties.

Russians have the banya, or bathhouse, which is similar to the Finnish sauna, apart from the fact that;

there is a wooden cauldron inside, with a ladle that you use to pour warm water over your body.

Commercial Russian “banyas” take a cue from Roman thermaes in that they consist of a complex that includes;

swimming pools, a wet sauna, a dry sauna, and even a restaurant, so that people may congregate and spend the entire day there.

6 surprising things that are actually aging you

Wear sunscreen, don’t forget eye cream, avoid cigarettes: We all know the drill when it comes to feeling (and looking) our most youthful selves. But what if we told you that late-night binge-watching session wasn’t doing you any favors either? Here, six surprising things that are actually aging you (and what to do about them)

1. our Office Happy Hour
Of course, this won’t stop us from getting our groove on come 5 p.m. Friday.
But alcohol is a natural diuretic, and long-term dehydration can lower skin’s elasticity, thereby causing wrinkles.
But the bad news doesn’t stop there: According to a recent study from the Research Society on Alcoholism, drinking too many cocktails can also cause harm on the cellular level and lead to “age-related illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and dementia.” (We’ll have a lemon water this time, thanks.)

2. Your Daily Commute

Nope, it’s not just the fact that the guy texting and driving from the car with the “MUSL BODY” license plate in front of you is making you pull your hair out.
Traffic-related pollution (think: the giant puffs of exhaust coming from the semi truck two cars up) can actually cause an increase in age spots, says a study from the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. Windows: rolled.

3. Your Job Stress

You have a huge report due tomorrow, your toilet decided to stop working this morning and your bank just called to say they noticed some weird activity on your card (maybe we will have that rum and coke after all).
Everyday stressors take a toll, but not just in the short run.
According to one Umeå University study, stress steroids released in the brain can accelerate the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, while another study found that job-related stress can cause harmful changes to our DNA that are linked to a multitude of degenerative diseases.

4. Your Posture

We’ve told you some super-easy ways to improve it, but in case that wasn’t enough motivation, here’s some explanation for why you should sit up straighter.
Aside from giving you back and neck pain, poor posture can lead to a weakened spine and increased spinal curvature down the road.
Further, a study published last year from the University of Idaho found that older adults with better posture actually showed increased cognitive function, while those with worse posture had a more difficult time recalling memories.

5. Your Lack Of Sleep

We know, we know: House of Cards is calling your name, and you’re already aware not getting enough quality zzzs each night is linked to numerous health problems in the long run, from increased risk of heart disease to obesity.
But did you know that your rough nights could also make you appear older as well? According to one study from University Hospitals Case Medical Center, patients who defined themselves as poor sleepers showed increased skin-aging effects such as “fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and slackening of skin.” Well, looks like it’s our bedtime.

6. Your Devices

It’s not just wreaking havoc on your 10 p.m. bedtime goal (curse you, Instagram!). Y
our smartphone is also causing damage to your eyesight, says a University of Melbourne study that found links between long-term blue light exposure from screens and age-related macular degeneration.
Hey, we’re not saying you have to go off the grid from now on. But you might want to rethink cuddling up to your iPhone before bed every night.

There are supplements that can help bring back your youthful days and enable you to do all the things you use to do when you were in your late 20s.
It can also help fix the problem of Macular degeneration, heart disease to obesity, cognitive function and Alzheimer’s Disease etc.

Just imagine yourself waking up to have the body of a 28 years old lady when you are above 40! That could be you...
No woman wants to get old not even the young ones, and it is very possible to be forever young.

You want to know HOW

First all before I go on with the Topic for Today, I want to wish all our Fathers and husbands in the house Happy Father's Day. Thank you for loving and taking care of our every need as your Kids and thanks for loving, caring and accommodating our excesses as your wives. God's blessings are upon you to protect you and provide for you in Jesus Name Amen...

Back to Business lolz...

We want to discuss briefly one of the key factors that affect HEART HEALTH, BRAIN HEALTH, VISION/EYE HEALTH,
In fact virtually all organs in the body!

What could it be?

Let us focus on Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly the two most important types—docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

“Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.

Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance)

and behavioral function.” – University of Maryland Medical Center.

Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial to the development and function of the human body like the heart health, brain health, and vision or eye health.

Additionally, Omega-3’s deliver some powerful health benefits that make omega-3’s an important part of our daily diet.

When this important type of fatty acid is not consumed regularly, different types of symptoms can surface.

These symptoms range from cognitive (e.g. depression and memory loss) to physical (e.g. inflammation and arthritis.)

It’s worth noting that the degree to which this vital fat source is neglected often coincides with the severity of symptoms.

Let us take this a little step further:

EPA and DHA—Which Do You Need?

Let us focus on Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly the two most important types—docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties.

They have been studied for the treatment and prevention of many diseases, several of which are related to inflammation,

including heart disease, stroke, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.

They have also been shown to be extraordinarily helpful in preventing and treating other brain conditions such as;

depression and other psychiatric disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and concussions

While the omega-3s DHA and EPA have different functions in the body, both are important for optimal health.

Benefits of EPA

There is still confusion, even among experts, as to the individual roles of EPA and DHA—especially given the fact that EPA can be converted to DHA.

That being said, much of the data supports the role of EPA as a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting compound.

How does this work?

Well, there is a family of inflammatory compounds, collectively known as eicosanoids, derived from the omega-6 fatty acid arachidonic acid.

EPA lessens the production of these eicosanoids and their resulting inflammation in a number of important ways.

First, EPA inhibits the enzyme that produces arachidonic acid.

Second, EPA impedes the release of arachidonic acid from cell membranes (where it is stored) and its metabolization once it is released.

Without this release and metabolization, your body can’t make eicosanoids.

The result is a lower risk of the inflammation that would have been caused by all that arachidonic acid going to eicosanoids.

What about blood clotting?

Circulating cells called platelets are critical in causing your blood to clot. When platelets are activated, they aggregate and cause clots.

If these clots occur in particularly sensitive regions of your body, they can lead to a heart attack or stroke.

EPA reduces platelet activation, an early step in platelet aggregation to help to reduce clotting.

One study found that EPA was superior to DHA in decreasing platelet activation, a precursor to blood clotting.1

While the anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting properties of EPA are instrumental in many areas of health,

You can’t talk about EPA without talking about DHA…

Let's stop here for now, in our next post we will look at the Benefits of DHA and we will decide on which one to choose.

so keep a date with us...

What is Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acid

Hello there.

I am very happy to be here today with everybody and want to say thank you to all our readers and subscribers.

Today will be about Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, the difference, its importance, and benefits to our heart.
Before I dive in, something very funny happened recently at home smiley.

My four-year-old son went to school with my Omega 3 supplement and started giving a health presentation.

He was a scientist on the day of their school science and art's exhibition.

I was surprised to hear what he said during his talk, he taught his classmate and teachers,

-a little of what he knows about my omega 3 supplement (don't want to name the product cus they didn't pay me for the advert).

"he said my mum's omega 3 is the only soap that can wash butter and cheese away from the water pipe inside our heart

so that we don't die like a heart attack" lolzzzz smiley smiley smiley.

when you hear my rendition of the presentation you will laugh and roll on the ground.

That is why we advise parents not to say or do the wrong things in front of their toddlers, they are very smart and sharp.

Back to the Business of the day what is omega 3?.

Back to Basics: Essential fatty acids defined…

The body can make most of the fats it needs to function.

But certain fats—known as essential fatty acids (EFAs)—must come from the diet alone.

Our bodies don’t have the necessary enzymes to make them. Both of these fatty acids are needed for growth and repair.

Such is the case with the omega-3 and omega-6 families of fatty acids.

Both omega-3 (ω-3) and omega-6 (ω-6) fatty acids are important components of cell membranes and are-

-precursors to many other substances in the body such as those involved with regulating blood pressure and inflammatory responses.

There is increasing support for omega-3 fatty acids in protecting against fatal heart disease and it is known that-

-they have anti-inflammatory effects, which may be important in this and other diseases.

There is growing interest in the role of omega-3 fatty acids in the prevention of diabetes and certain types of cancer.


Within each family of fatty acid, there are specific fatty acids that come from different parts of our food supply.

For example, there are a few types of omega-3 fatty acids; the most common omega-3s are alpha-linolenic

acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

ALA is found in plants, primarily flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts, and their oils.

EPA and DHA are called long-chain omega-3 fatty acids because they have 20 or more carbons in their structure.

These fatty acids are found in fatty fish such as albacore tuna, herring, salmon, mackerel, sardines, and trout.

Most scientific and clinical studies carried out to date have examined the effectiveness of this long-chain omega-3s found in fish.

Consequently, most scientists who work in this area believe these are the omega-3s that have the greatest anti-inflammatory

-and brain-protective benefits.

click this link to get the best scientifically proven Omega 3 supplement https://healthandbeauty102.com/what-is-omega-3-and-omega-6-fatty-acid/

ALA is a plant-based precursor to EPA and DHA, meaning your body in some cases can convert it into EPA and DHA.

However, some research has shown that this conversion is not all that effective, and credible studies indicate that individual humans

-have dramatically different capacities to carry out this conversion.

So to be safe, most studies indicate that you are better off getting your omega-3s from fish rather than plant sources.

There are also several commonly found omega-6 fatty acids that include linoleic acid (LA), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA),

and arachidonic acid (AA). LA is by far the most common fatty acid found in the human food supply.

It is a primary fatty acid found in cooking oils, including vegetable, corn, canola, peanut, soybean, safflower, and sunflower.

GLA is in less common oils—mainly borage, black currant seed, and evening primrose.

AA is found in red meat, eggs, and poultry products.

The proper omega-6 and the omega-3 ratio

Do we need both omega-6s and omega-3s in our diet? The short answer is, yes, we do.

Our body requires both of these fatty acids for proper growth, immune response, repair, and brain development.

However, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids have very different functions.

Omega-6 fatty acids are the precursors of several molecules that cause Inflammation, which we now know is

-the primary driver of most human diseases. In addition to inflammation, omega-6 fatty acids impact blood clotting and cell growth.

In contrast, the omega-3 fatty acids—and especially the long-chain omega-3s—reduce inflammation and blood clotting

-and are critical for brain development and function. When both families of fatty acids are in balance, good health results.

click this link to get the best scientifically proven Omega 3 supplement https://healthandbeauty102.com/what-is-omega-3-and-omega-6-fatty-acid/

But herein lies the problem.

The standard western diet is very high in omega-6s, particularly LA and today we are imbibing this diet!

Especially in the past several decades, with the rise of LA-enriched cooking oils and processed foods,

our intake of omega-6s has skyrocketed.

In fact, the amount of omega-6s we ate 50 years ago represented about 1.5 percent of our calories.

Today, it’s an astounding 7-10 percent.

There is no single nutrient in the modern Western diet that has increased so dramatically over the past

50 years as omega-6 fatty acids.

Since omega-6 fatty acids are converted to pro-inflammatory molecules, several studies suggest that this high omega-6

-(and, comparatively speaking, low omega-3) intake is increasing our risk of systemic inflammation and inflammatory

-diseases—Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and asthma, to name a few.

Today, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is typically 10 to 1 or greater.

Ideally, your ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids should be closer to 2 to 1.

But with vegetable oils and processed foods so common in the standard American diet,

-even the most diligent dieter tends to consume way more omega-6s than necessary.

This imbalance both reduces the amount of omega-3s in circulation and in tissues and overrides the powerful

-and important benefits of omega-3s that you do get in your diet.

To tip the scales in favor of anti-inflammatory omega-3s, you need to limit processed foods and vegetable-based oils,

while at the same time consuming more of the omega-3 rich foods listed above.

As an extra insurance policy, I take an omega-3 supplement everyday brain traumas such as concussions.

So you really need a good balance of both to reap their full health benefits.

I take an omega-3 formulation (taken every single day) that contains both compounds,

DHA and EPA in the right proportion, with confidence that I’m doing my heart, brain, and entire body a world of good.

The best formulation of Omega3 in the market to reverse Blood Omega 3 deficiency and begin to correct Omega 3: Omega 6 ratio

Why you need to take a good quality Omega 3:

Not all Fish oils/Omega 3 are equal. You need a high-quality one like the one I use, (don't

-want to name the product cus they didn't pay me for the advert)

Omega 3 made from the Arctic sea/Cold water fish which have fish with low mercury level and high omega 3 content...

It is produced using the cold process (unlike most commercially produced Omega 3 made with the hot-

-process that is faster but low-quality yield)!

The higher the BLOOD Omega 3 level, the lower the heart attack risk! Over 90% reduction!!!

A study was done and published in New England Journal of Medicine!!!

It is scientifically proven!

Lagosians wake up to high blood pressure

In Nigeria’s megacity of Lagos, lifestyles resemble those of developed countries and hypertension is increasingly becoming a problem.

Motunrayo Bello reports.

Bulletin of the World Health Organization.

Joseph Otu (not his real name) found out about his blood pressure problem the hard way.

Woke up in the middle of the night with a headache, he had difficulty speaking and

felt weak on one side of his body.

The 54-year-old Nigerian professional driver had no idea what was happening to him but feared the worst.

His family took him to a clinic near his home in Ibafo in the sprawling megacity of Lagos,

where a nurse checked his blood pressure.

Blood pressure readings are comprised of two values: one for systolic and one for diastolic pressure;

anything equal to or above 140 over 90 is considered high.

Otu’s stood at 175 over 110, a level at which he faced an increased risk of stroke, heart attack,

and kidney failure. “We started praying,” says Otu.

The fact that Otu had no idea about his blood pressure status before the clinical diagnosis is not unusual.

High blood pressure requires the heart to work harder than normal to circulate blood through the blood vessels.

The symptoms of high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, are not always obvious, which makes regular check-ups essential.

Need for Creating Awareness For The Dangers Of High Blood Pressure
Nigeria is one of many developing countries where the health services have focused on treating infectious diseases,

such as malaria and tuberculosis, but in recent years, noncommunicable conditions have become an increasing problem.

One of the most prevalent noncommunicable conditions worldwide, hypertension is responsible for an

estimated 45% of deaths due to heart disease and 51% of deaths due to stroke globally.

Of WHO’s six regions, the African region has the highest prevalence of hypertension estimated at 46% of adults aged

25 and above, according to WHO’s Global status report on noncommunicable diseases 2010.

Moreover, the problems caused by hypertension are made worse when people are not aware of the necessity for

– or unable to afford – regular blood pressure checks.

This year’s World Health Day, on 7 April, the aim was to promote more awareness of the causes and consequences

of high blood pressure, as well as how it can be prevented, and to encourage national and local authorities to

do more about this growing problem.

“We hope this campaign will encourage more adults to check their blood pressure but also that health authorities

will make blood pressure measurement affordable for everyone,” says Dr. Shanthi Mendis, a medical officer at WHO.

In many developing countries few people go for routine medical check-ups to monitor the risk factors associated with

noncommunicable diseases. And Nigeria is no exception.

remove all cholesterol in the arteries and veins;  https://https://healthandbeauty102.com/lagosians-wake-up-to-high-blood-pressure-2/

Dr. Kingsley Akinroye, executive director of the Nigerian Heart Foundation, a nongovernmental

organization (NGO), says that “the health system offers diagnosis and treatment only to those who pay for it”.

Even when people do go for a medical check-up, diagnosis of such chronic conditions can be

unreliable at primary health level.

Toyin Ogunde, a shopkeeper living in Lagos, another Lagosian that wakes up to high blood pressure,

she went to the doctor reporting headaches and dizziness,

says she was prescribed medication for typhoid and malaria before her family finally persuaded her

to go to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for a second opinion.

“I didn’t know anything about hypertension before I came here,” says the 58-year-old hypertension patient.

WHO/Motunrayo BelloWoman has her blood pressure taken as part of the free hypertension screening programme in Ikorodu, Lagos

Money a barrier to blood pressure check

According to Dr. Olayinka Ogunleye, who works in the hypertension unit at that hospital, it costs around 1000 Nigerian Naira

(US$ 6.36) for a patient to have his or her blood pressure checked.

Ogunleye says that although this fee may deter some people from finding out their blood pressure status,

many others are simply unaware of the health consequences or indifferent to the risks of untreated hypertension.

“People don’t think it is important to spend money and time on their health; they would rather spend more

money on luxuries,” he says.

Currently, fewer than 4% of Nigerians are covered by health insurance.

These include civil servants working for the federal government and women and children under the Maternal and Child Health-

-Project, which is funded by the US government (USAID).

There are plans to roll out coverage for such basic and essential health services including access to diagnosis and

treatment of hypertension under a national health bill, which the federal government is currently considering.

Given the lack of routine blood pressure checks in Nigeria, it is not surprising that the country’s statistics

on hypertension are unreliable.

“Most data are outdated speculation based on mathematical models and surveys that are scanty and unrepresentative with

low validity,”

says Dr. Anthony Usoro, national coordinator for noncommunicable diseases at the Federal Ministry of Health in Abuja.

“The lack of reliable data has made it very difficult for policy-makers to concentrate efforts to control the

emerging health burden of the disease.”

Worse, says Akinroye, the lack of hard data has sometimes been used to deny the existence of the problem.

But for all his concerns regarding the lack of adequate programmes at both the state and federal level,

Akinroye does see signs of a change in attitudes.

He points out the federal government is currently putting together a national policy on noncommunicable diseases.

“The policy is due to be out later this year and will aid the response to hypertension,” he says.

While Nigeria’s plans to tackle the problem, yet to be announced, the factors that are making it worse are clear.

“The high prevalence of hypertension is explained in part by lifestyle changes, many related to changing environmental and social

factors” says Dr. Obinna Ekwunife, a lecturer at the University of Nigeria in the south-eastern town of Nsukka.

Factors Causing High Blood Pressure

Ekwunife cites factors such as increased


*fat intake from the consumption of processed foods,

*cholesterol in the food we eat causing plaques in the arteries,

*increased tobacco use, and sedentary lifestyles.

“An increasing number of Nigerians are driving to work and participating in jobs with minimal physical activity,”

he says. Nowhere are these problems felt more acutely than in the country’s burgeoning urban areas.

Lagos is a rapidly expanding city that is home to an estimated 10 million people, and, according to a recent

United Nations Habitat report, is projected to overtake Cairo to become the largest city in Africa with 12.4 million

inhabitants in 2015.

As Lagos state commissioner for health, Dr. Jide Idris spends a lot of his time thinking about the particular

heart health challenges faced by the city’s residents, challenges which,

he says, is by no means limited to poor diet and lack of physical activity.

click the link to get the best scientifically proven solution that brings High Blood Pressure back to normal and

remove all cholesterol in the arteries and veins;  https://healthandbeauty102.com/lagosians-wake-up-to-high-blood-pressure-2/

“Urbanization brings risks other than sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy diet.

City life has implications for levels of stress and loss of family cohesion as well,” he says.

Idris is also keen to point out that hypertension is not just a rich man’s problem.

“Hypertension cuts across gender and socioeconomic status,” he says.

Idris emphasizes the importance of traditional prevention efforts, which he says are the main focus of his

strategy in Lagos state.

Free Blood Pressure Checked In Lagos

In recognition of the fact that prevention and diagnosis of hypertension can be weak at primary health care level,

a key aspect of these efforts is to strengthen such services in the state’s 277 clinics.

“We are providing the diagnosis in public health facilities and there are some financial mechanisms that

can support the poor people,” Idris says.

For tertiary care, he says that a new, high tech cardiac and renal center is currently under construction

in Gbagada district in the north of the city.

A key element of Lagos state’s preventive approach is raising public awareness about hypertension

through sponsored advertising in Nigeria’s national daily newspapers.

Lagos state government is also investing in safe walkways alongside roads to allow people to walk without fear

of accidents, encouraging more physical exercise.

Idris says he hopes that state-wide campaigns, using resources such as local government councils,

community-based organizations, and NGOs. are making a difference.

“I personally believe that the awareness is much better than when we started,” he says.

Akinroye too expresses qualified optimism;

Noting that more Nigerians are aware of basic information regarding the dangers of consuming high fat, salt

or tobacco use on blood pressure.

Joseph Otu is one of them. “My doctor told me of the contributing factors,” he says,

“I am now encouraging my friends to eat and live healthier lives so they don’t fall victim like

other Lagosians that wake up to High Blood Pressure.”

Re: WOMEN'S HEALTH: Strictly 40 And Above by sandyo: 12:27pm On Jul 02, 2018
Good Morning and a happy new month to all the Mummies, wives, anties and grandmumies in the house.
It's another beautiful Monday, the first day of the week and first Monday in the month of July.

Today I am sharing another fresh testimony from one of our client that used our product.

Good morning.
My name is John Badmus (real name withheld).

My sexual performance was okay to a large extent- I could last up to 10 minutes (sometimes though... lol) on a normal session. I know how to control my performance to last up to 10mins if I choose to.

I only began to use this "supplement" because I wanted to make myself as a control experiment for my parents who I initially bought the "Supplement" for. Sorry, I had to remove the name of the supplement because they didn't pay for advert... lol cheesy

So, I started using it twice a day as it's prescribed on the pack.

But in the morning, I took it as early as 5:45 am when I normally take my one glass of water therapy before leaving the house for my office and I took it at night after dinner before I slept. Because my parents were at that time taking it twice daily as well.

I was on it for two months. But the result started showing only after three weeks. I just discovered that my libido had gone through the roof.
Also, I was staying much longer before I came out of cloud 9 if you get what I mean wink.

I suddenly began to notice my wife's beauty like never before. She too began to get concerned because I kept commenting on her beauty anytime she passed by. My desire for her suddenly increased o shocked.

And while on it, she would wonder that even after 20mins I was yet to get there, you know na!!!

I was enjoying it sha o. I cannot lie smiley. Of course, I get her there first so she will not accuse me of selfishness and every two days I am ready again.

She is getting concerned o. I thought women wanted men that stay longer. My wife said mine has become too much...hahaha (this is somebody that used to complain that I was a 2-minute man ooo hahahaha)

All of this happened after two weeks when our dear consultant Sandra advised that my parents should increase their dosage. So, that meant I also had to increase mine, since I was the control experiment.

It was after one week of starting this new dosage, I noticed that my libido had suddenly skyrocketed.

I began to desire my wife as if we were not married or touched her before- I can't explain the feeling properly. But we have been married for almost 12 years now with two children and, of course, I began to last beyond 15 mins per session.

Even if I tried to make it quicker, it was just enjoyment galore without coming out of cloud nine. My wife began to complain a bit when she noticed all this and was asking if I had discovered another way of extending my pleasure. I told her nooo.

But I later confessed to her, it was since I started using the "supplement" that I also discovered the changes. Even now, whenever she comes close to me in the living room, she is very careful not to arouse me, because mere touching her body with my hand, she knows that I will become hungry for her suddenly, and she does not have all the time for my desires ����

As for my parents, my mother now goes to the toilet regularly. Before she started using (the same supplement), her bowels used to be tight for as long as 3 days, which is not good for her age.

She informed me last Saturday that all her supplements have finished. So I am going to order another batch today.
Madam Sandra, I will call you later for more ooo.

What Is The Heart?

According to wikipedia.com. The heart is a muscular organ in most animals,

which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system.

Blood provides the body with oxygen and nutrients, as well as assists in the removal of metabolic wastes.

In humans, the heart is located between the lungs, in the middle compartment of the chest.

Good day everyone.

I am very pleased to be alive and healthy knowing my heart is well nourished and taking care of properly.

like the saying goes; knowledge is Power!!!

I am also very pleased talking to everyone that will read this post and listen to the podcast because;

It's going to be information packed I promise you...

The reason for this Heart series is to create more awareness of the alarming rise of Heart-related issues.

The statistics are scary... We will soon get to that.

I like to describe the Heart as a pumping machine;

Imagine this scenario;

You live in an apartment  8 flats and just one pimping machine pumps water for everyone.

What do you think will happen?

Guess your answer is same as mine- the machine will need frequent replacement but unfortunately, the Heart can't afford that.

The Heart is the centre of our lives and we have been giving our hearts more work than it can carry unknowingly.

Facts about the Heart:

Let's end it here today. In our next post, we will continue our exposition of the heart.

Take care.

Heart Disease Causes, Symptoms, and Factors

Hello beautiful people, it's another wonderful day to be alive and Healthy and believes we are all in good Health.

Yesterday we started an interesting and information packed series on the HEART.

The major aim of this series is to bring the knowledge home and to our faces to enlighten us on the importance of having a Healthy Heart.

Before we delve into the matter of the day lets first all understand how the Heart works.

Understanding How the Heart Works

The heart is the hardest working muscle in the body.

The average heart beats 100,000 times a day, day and night, to supply oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.

Blood pumped by the heart also shuttles waste products such as carbon dioxide to the lungs so it can be eliminated from the body.

Proper heart function is essential to support life.

According to WHO;

Statistics has revealed that 150,000 Nigerians die annually as a result of heart-related diseases and alarmingly,

the number is expected to increase to 23 million by the year 2030 if adequate measures are not taken.

While Heart disease is the leading killer in the United States and affects an estimated 14 million adults.

Heart disease is responsible for more deaths in the U.S. than the 2nd through 7th leading causes of death combined.

Also, 34 per cent of the adult population in Nigeria live with ‎High Blood Pressure especially cardiovascular heart disease

before the age of 50 and the number is said to be on the increase as a result of poor diet,

the absence of healthy lifestyle, lack of exercise, and others.


What is Heart Disease?

Coronary artery disease (CAD), commonly known as heart disease.

Heart disease develops when a combination of fatty material, calcium, and scar tissue (plaque) builds up in the arteries

that supply the heart with blood.

What is Plaque? - "plaque is like a firm shell with a soft inner core containing cholesterol"

Through these arteries, called the coronary arteries, the heart muscle (myocardium) gets the oxygen and other nutrients it

needs to pump blood.

The plaque often narrows the artery so that the heart does not get enough blood.

When a coronary artery narrows due to plaque buildup or some other cause, the heart muscle is starved for

oxygen and a person experiences chest pain known as angina.

If plaque completely blocks blood flow (like the 3rd artery in the picture above), it may cause a heart attack

myocardial infarction) or a fatal rhythm disturbance (sudden cardiac arrest).

How Does Heart Attack Happen

When a piece of a fatty plaque (plaque is like a firm shell with a soft inner core containing cholesterol) in a coronary artery breaks off or ruptures.

When this happens, a blood clot forms in the area in response to the injury.

click on this link https://healthandbeauty102.com/heart-disease-causes/ to get what will dissolve the plaque and restore the Heart back to Health.

The clot may block the flow of blood through the artery, causing a heart attack.

Sadly, some heart attacks lead to the heart-stopping completely, a situation known as the sudden cardiac arrest.

The heart may also start to beat in a very dangerous rhythm called ventricular tachycardia, which is potentially fatal.

Guess we have said a lot today and it's probably a good place for us to stop for now.

Look out for our next post on the symptoms and signs to look at for as it relates to Heart disease.

How Blocked Arteries Can Lead to Erectile Dysfunction ED.

Hello everyone, today is another beautiful day to live in our best health and just be beautiful.

Also, want to say happy holiday to all our kids and to our parents the lord is our muscles �

Let me share;

Little tips to keep our kids healthy during this holiday; eat a lot of veggies, drink natural juice eg smoothies, eat a lot of fiber base food.

Make sure they are free from germs and bacteria or give them kids supplements that will increase their immunity to enable their body to defend and heal itself.

Before I divert from today's Gist. We love you kids...�❤️��

Taking off from our last post on heart-disease-causes, we will be looking at "The Heart And Erectile Dysfunction ED"

So, I will like to show us how a Blocked Arteries Can Lead to Erectile Dysfunction ED.

You might think that ED (erectile dysfunction) has nothing to do with your heart.

But if you have ED, it could be a sign that your arteries are clogged.

It’s all about blood flow. To get and keep an erection, blood needs to have no problem getting to your joystick.

Blood needs to have no problem getting to your joystick.

If you have ED, it can mean that one or more of your blood vessels have narrowed or are blocked.

Plaque in your arteries can make that happen.

Doctors call it “atherosclerosis,” which means the hardening of the arteries due to plaque buildup.

click on this link � https://healthandbeauty102.com/the-heart-and-erectile-dysfunction-ed/ to get our MACHO MANPACK �� that will restore your pride as a MAN �️

What Happens in The Heart And Erectile Dysfunction ED

When your heart pumps, blood goes through arteries to get to different parts of your body.

To get to the joystick, blood first goes through arteries in the belly and then branch off.

When it's time for an erection, these arteries widen or dilate. More blood flows into the joystick, making it swell. More blood flows into the joystick, making it swell.

Erectile dysfunction can mean that at least some of the blood vessels on that path aren't in perfect health.

Even if you don’t have a blocked artery yet, the lining of your blood vessels might not work as well as it should.

Atherosclerosis isn’t the only reason that ED can happen. See your doctor find out what the cause is in your case.

6 Things That Make Atherosclerosis More Likely

Most men with ED have risks that make them more likely to get atherosclerosis, such as:

1. Atherosclerosis in family members
2. High cholesterol levels
3. High blood pressure
4. Diabetes
5. Obesity
6. Smoking

Let's call it a day from here, we will be looking at "the heart and stroke" on our next post, remember we are still on our Heart series.

So look out for our next post because it's going to be information pack, I promise.

Re: WOMEN'S HEALTH: Strictly 40 And Above by sandyo: 11:39pm On Jul 13, 2018
I got this question "is it normal to menstruate during pregnancy?" from a client today.

I decided to write about it as a blog post for the benefit of those that might have the same challenge... not to worry we will continue our heart series in our next post.

Hello guys, I believe we all had a great day.

So, the question ❓ is:

Can you get your period while you're pregnant?

No. You can't have your menstrual period while you're pregnant.

Some women do have vaginal bleeding during pregnancy.

Some even report intermittent bleeding that seems like a regular period to them.

But vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is not the same thing as menstruation.

Menstruation only happens when you're not pregnant:

Each month, your uterus grows a thick blood-rich lining in preparation for an egg to embed there.

If you don't get pregnant that month, you shed this tissue and blood – that's your menstrual period.

But once an egg embeds in the uterine lining, hormones tell the blood-rich tissue to stay intact to support the growing baby.

And you won't shed it and start having your period again until your pregnancy is over.

Bleeding occurs during pregnancy for various reasons, some serious and some not.

Some women have light bleeding or spotting in the week before their period is due and they may mistake that for a period.

It's generally a lot lighter than a typical period and lasts just a day or two.

This spotting has been called "implantation bleeding" because of the idea that it might be caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the blood-rich lining of the uterus.

But no one knows what really causes it.

You may have spotting after a Pap smear, vaginal exam, or sex.

This is because there's more blood going to your cervix during pregnancy.

Bleeding can also be a sign of something seriously wrong, such as an infection, placental problems, miscarriage, or an ectopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening.

If you notice bleeding while you're pregnant, call your doctor or midwife right away, even if the bleeding has stopped.

Many women who bleed a little during pregnancy deliver without complications, but you may need an evaluation to rule out a serious problem.

If you're actively bleeding or have severe pain of any kind, head straight to the emergency room.

[center]STROKE: Signs, Symptoms, Causes, Types, and Treatment[/center]

In continuation with our HEART SERIES; we are looking at STROKE: Signs, Symptoms, Causes, Types, and Treatment.

Let us refresh our memory again from our last post on

STROKE; When the brain's blood supply is inadequate, a stroke results.

Strokes are brain attacks.

They occur when the blood supply to the brain becomes blocked.

A stroke is a medical emergency that needs immediate medical attention.

Stroke symptoms (for example, loss of an arm or leg function or slurred speech) signify a medical emergency because, without

treatment, blood-deprived brain cells quickly become damaged or die, resulting in brain injury, serious disability, or death.

This Health and Beauty 102 article will explain why strokes occur and how they are treated,

as well as exploring the different types and the steps a person can take to prevent a stroke.

Signs of a Stroke

The F.A.S.T. test was designed in 1998 to help ambulance staff in the United Kingdom quickly assess stroke.

It takes into account the most common symptoms of stroke and is designed to help quickly assess a stroke

with very little training.

F.A.S.T. Test
F means face -- If one side of the face droops, it's a sign of a possible stroke
A means arms -- If the person cannot hold both arms out, it's another possible stroke sign
S means speech -- Slurring words and poor understanding of simple sentences is another possible stroke sign
T means time -- If any of the FAS signs are positive, it's Time to call 9-1-1 immediately

Stroke Symptoms

What are the warning signs and symptoms of a stroke?
There may be no warning signs of a stroke until it occurs.

It is why high blood pressure (hypertension), one of the risk factors for stroke, is called the silent killer.

There may be no warning signs of a stroke until it occurs. It is why high blood pressure (hypertension),

one of the risk factors for stroke is called the silent killer.

Initial symptoms of a stroke can occur in someone suddenly. Know these signs of a stroke:

The Difficulty speaking
They have Difficulty understanding or confusion, especially with simple tasks
There is Difficulty with muscle strength, especially on one side of the body
Difficulty with numbness, especially on one side of the body
Severe headache
Vision changes (in one or both eyes)
Also Difficulty with swallowing
Facial droop on one side

What Causes a Stroke?
Common causes of stroke come from blood vessels both outside and inside the brain.

Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) can occur when plaque (deposits of cholesterol, calcium, fat, and other substances)

builds up and narrows the vessel making it easy for clots to form and further occlude the vessel.

The clots can break free only to occlude smaller vessels inside the brain.

The blood vessels inside the brain itself can accumulate this plaque.

Occasionally, weakened vessels can burst and bleed into the brain.

Diagnosing Types of Stroke
There are two main types of strokes (ischemic and hemorrhagic) and they are treated differently.

They are often emergently diagnosed by a head CT scan (or an MRI scan).

Ischemic Stroke[/b]

This slide shows a CT scan of an ischemic stroke, which is responsible for about 80% to 90% of all strokes.

Ischemic strokes are caused by clots that reduce or stop blood flow to the brain.

The clot may develop elsewhere in the body and circulate to become lodged in a blood vessel in the brain,

or the clot may originate in the brain.

Ischemic strokes are usually divided into two main subtypes: thrombotic and embolic.

[b]Thrombotic Stroke

Nearly half of all strokes are thrombotic strokes.

Thrombotic strokes are caused when blood clots form in the brain due to a diseased or damaged cerebral artery.

Embolic Stroke

Blood clots also cause embolic strokes.

However, in the case of embolic strokes, the blood clot forms in an artery outside the brain.

Often these blood clots start in the heart and travel until they become lodged in an artery of the brain.

The physical and neurological damage embolic strokes cause is nearly immediate.

Hemorrhagic Stroke[/b]

The circle insert outlines what composes a hemorrhagic stroke.

A blood vessel in the brain breaks open and blood escapes into the brain under pressure, compressing other blood

vessels and brain cells causing damage and death.

This bleeding into the brain is difficult to stop and is more likely to be fatal.

There are two types of hemorrhagic strokes: intracerebral and subarachnoid.

[b]Intracerebral Stroke
 means “within the brain,” and it refers to a stroke caused by a diseased blood vessel bursting within the brain.
Intracerebral strokes are usually caused by high blood pressure.

Subarachnoid Stroke
A subarachnoid hemorrhage refers to bleeding immediately surrounding the brain in the area of the

head called the subarachnoid space.

The main symptom of a subarachnoid stroke is a sudden, severe headache, possibly following a popping or snapping feeling.

Many factors can cause a subarachnoid stroke, including head injury, blood thinners, bleeding disorders

and bleeding from a tangle of blood vessels known as an arteriovenous malformation.

Mini-Stroke (TIA)

"Mini-strokes" (also termed transient ischemic attacks or TIAs) are temporary blockages of blood vessels in the brain.

TIAs can produce mild stroke symptoms that resolve.

TIAs often occur before a stroke happens, so they serve as warning signs that the person may need stroke preventive therapy.

Mini Stroke Symptoms[/b]
Facial Droop
Vision loss

[b]Mini Stroke Treatment

Treatment for a mini-stroke may include medication, changes in lifestyle, and possibly surgery to reduce the

chances of another stroke occurring.

Guess we can pause it here and continue in our next post where we will talk about;

Lifestyle Changes
Uncontrollable Stroke Risk Factors

Good morning and complements of the season.

I saw this post by my friend Female Badass and want to encourage you with it.

" Start today creating a vision for yourself , your HEALTH and life.
Bounce back from adversity and create the lifestyle and confidence you want for yourself .
Tell yourself its possible along the way, have patience and maintain peace with yourself during the process. Its not easy though. I was sick of being miserable and never wanting to take any pictures when I've always had confidence - at that time, not enough.

I was sick of being insecure Unclad. I was sick of how slow I always felt and how long it took me to get out of my car seat because it wasn't easy to lift myself up.
I made a choice to CHANGE!!

If I can do this, you can.

I'm not just special or unique when it comes to the process of self care. I just put in the work and wanted it bad enough.
Everyday, I continue to strive to become the best version of myself and its a lot of work.

Attitude is everything and controlling your reactions and actions take discipline ,daily inventory and owning my poo when I make a mistake while embracing the change. "

Aspire to be inspired and inspire others ��.

Make you body the Sexiest outfit you own this Christmas...

Mrs Loko: discussing with hubby about her plan for tomorrow being Monday.

Phone ringing:

Mrs Loko picks up her phone, the voice at the other end sounds desperate

The voice : Dad just slumped and we have rushed him to the hospital now, the doctor said he had a stroke.

Mrs Loko: scream What! When? how did this happen?, but he was ok when I saw him last week. Can he talk?, oh my God!

The voice: No, his mouth is bent and the doctor has fixed drip on him. He was just sitting in the living room, watching football when it happened.

Mrs Loko: Ok, I will be coming home tomorrow.

Plan cancelled, quickly called her boss to take permission for a few days.
That is how she started running up and down because of her dad's health.

6 Sure Ways to Prevent Hypertension

Making an effort to prevent high blood pressure can reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, erection issues, and other serious illnesses.
If you are at risk for hypertension, take these steps to help prevent it.

High blood pressure, which is also called hypertension, increases your risk of developing many serious health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.
It is estimated that nearly one out of every three Nigerians has high blood pressure. Some are not even aware...

Hypertension Prevention Factors You Can Control
Your age, along with a family history of hypertension and ethnicity are among the hypertension risk factors that are out of your control.

When it comes to preventing high blood pressure, the idea is to focus on the risk factors that you can change.

"We can't do anything about our age, but we can do something about our lifestyle," says Gbenga Ogedegbe, MD, MPH, a clinical hypertension specialist, director of the Center for Healthful Behavior Change, and associate professor of medicine for the division of general internal medicine at New York University School of Medicine in New York City.

To avoid a hypertension diagnosis, make these healthy lifestyle choices:

1. Maintain a healthy weight. When it comes to hypertension prevention, your weight is crucial, says Dr. Ogedegbe. People who are overweight should try to lose weight, and people of normal weight should avoid adding on any pounds.

2. Eat a balanced diet. Eating healthful foods can help keep your blood pressure under control. Get plenty of fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in potassium, and limit your intake of excess calories, fat, and sugar. Consider following the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, or DASH, diet, which has been shown to help manage blood pressure.

3. Cut back on salt. For many people, eating a low-sodium diet can help keep blood pressure normal. "The higher the sodium intake, the higher the blood pressure," says Ogedegbe. You can cut back on your total salt intake by avoiding high-sodium packaged and processed foods and not adding extra salt to your meals. "I tell people to stay away from salt shakers.

4. Exercise regularly. Get moving to prevent hypertension. "Physical activity is crucial. The more exercise you get, the better, but even a little bit can help control blood pressure. Moderate exercise for about 30 minutes three times a week is a good start.

5. Limit alcohol. Drinking too much alcohol can lead to high blood pressure. For women, that means no more than one drink a day, and for men, no more than two.

6. Monitor your blood pressure. Make sure that you have your blood pressure measured regularly, either at your doctor's office or at home. High blood pressure often occurs with no symptoms, so only blood pressure readings will tell you if your blood pressure is on the rise.
If your doctor determines that you have prehypertension — blood pressure in the range of 120-139/80-89 millimeters of mercury (mmHg) that puts you at increased risk of developing hypertension — your doctor may recommend extra steps as a safeguard.

Take a look at your lifestyle habits and decide where you can make changes to help prevent hypertension.

Conquer small goals, such as snacking on fruits and vegetables instead of junk food, and continue to practice these good habits until they are a part of your daily routine.

Adopting these lifestyle changes can help prevent high blood pressure if your blood pressure is currently under control or lead to lower blood pressure if your numbers are already elevated.
