Can Hormone Imbalance Cause Digestive Problems?

Hormone imbalance due to perimenopause comes with a long list of physical and emotional ailments. Some more embarrassing than others.

If you’re dealing with constipation, diarrhea, bloating and excessive belching, you may be wondering: “Can hormone imbalance cause digestive problems?”

The answer is, yes. Fluctuating hormones due to perimenopause can absolutely cause digestive issues.

Take belching, for example.

Many perimenopausal women experience increased discomfort after eating. They may even experience an allergic reaction to certain foods and have difficulty breathing after. Other times, eating comes with excessive amounts of gas and belching.

And I when I say belching, I mean lots.

So much so that it can be hard to control. All that belching can make dinners out with friends embarrassing to say the least…

So what do you do?

Well, one option is to stop going out to dinner with friends all together. Just avoid the situation entirely and … Read More

How Will Plastic Surgery Impact Your Health?

Plastic Surgery can improve your breathing and the flow of oxygen.

A patient with a deviated septum can get this corrected by means of rhinoplasty. Usually, a deviated septum makes it difficult to breath, causing too much snoring. The moment this is corrected, both the patient and his/her partner can sleep better. When we get a good night’s sleep, we wake up feeling much better.

We have to keep in mind that most medical problems have something to do with not getting a good sleep, so offering a patient a better sleep is a catalyst in itself to correct other health issues that are brought about or affected by not sleeping well.

Plastic Surgery Can Improve Vision

Blepheroplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can instantly correct droopy eyelids, which in turn, improves vision. In addition, dry-eye problems can likewise be corrected by blepharoplasty. The positive effects of correcting both droopy … Read More

Leadership – Our Unhealthy Organizations

An organization’s health can determine its ability to remain competitive. Since so much of our reaction to organization’s well being is based on the relatively small time frame of a quarter of a year, we have often ignored the signs of an organization in trouble until it is too late. Unfortunately, our leaders, for the most part, are better trained in (and better rewarded for) evaluating the static financial and product information than the real health of the organization.

Studying an organization as if it were a person can yield some very interesting information.

Most of us, if asked about our health, would not think of assessing health by looking at the balance on our personal bank account.

And yet, when we talk about organizations, we make the mistake of thinking that an organization’s health is mostly reflected in its revenues, profit margins, assets, cash flow, and the immediacy of … Read More

Keeping the Mouth Healthy With Oral Probiotics

We can define probiotics as healthy bacteria that are mostly known to have a positive impact on our digestive health. According to research, it has been noted that the probiotics are also important in keeping the mouth healthy as well. Even though the relevant bodies have not yet approved the use of the oral probiotics medicines, there are studies which suggest that they could help oral health significantly.

The possible effects of using oral probiotics include:

  • Plaque prevention

Our mouths have different kinds of bacteria. Some of these are responsible for the occurrence of plaque. There is a bacterial strain that can actually fight the bacteria that causes cavities. The bacteria stop the growth of the bacterium thereby preventing growth of plaque.

  • Fighting bad breath

Studies have also been conducted to see how possible it is for probiotics to deal with bad breath. In most cases, bad breath comes as … Read More

Loss of Penis Sensitivity May Cause Delayed Ejaculation

At some point in their lives, most if not all men experience some penis function issue of some kind, which may be related to penis health or may be due to other factors. The most common tend to be erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation, but there are other issues that can arise that impede sexual satisfaction. One of these is the problem of delayed ejaculation, which can have several contributing factors, but which tends to focus around a loss of penis sensitivity.

A legitimate problem

As the name may imply, delayed ejaculation describes a situation in which a man has difficulty ejaculating within what he might consider a reasonable amount of time. Some men, especially those who experience problems with premature ejaculation, may scoff at calling this a problem, but to those who experience it, it is a problem indeed. It can be extremely frustrating, often leading to men disengaging … Read More

Does a Bent Penis Indicate Possible Cancer?

Few things make a man more nervous than the possibility of something seriously wrong with his penis – and things rarely get more serious than cancer. Where penis health is concerned, worry about cancer is way up there. Fortunately, penis cancer is rare, responsible for only about 1% of all cancer cases in men. But that doesn’t decrease its ability to strike fear in a man. And some men may have become especially concerned recently when articles began appearing that seem to link a bent penis to an increased likelihood of contracting cancer.

The study

These articles were largely based on a study published in the medical journal Fertility & Sterility. The data was first presented at the American Society for Reproductive Cancer Scientific Congress.

Entitled “Increased risk of cancer among men with Peyronie’s disease,” the study examined whether there was a clinical link between Peyronie’s disease and genetically-linked conditions, … Read More

Jockstrap Use Might Provide Penis Protection

A boy’s first jockstrap is something of a rite of passage, indicating that he has taken 1 step closer, physically at least, to becoming a man. It may be the first time that a boy becomes aware of what might be termed adult penis health issues. Sure, he has (hopefully) been carefully washing his penis for years, but wearing a jockstrap brings up the whole concept of penis protection – and that’s something he may not have had reason to investigate. (Hopefully he has been spared any nasty and unfortunate zipper accidents.)

But if a jockstrap provides penis protection, there are also some ways in which it can be somewhat, shall one say, problematic. Below are some of the pros and cons associated with the jockstrap.

Pros

– Athletic support. There’s a reason it’s called an athletic supporter, and wearing a jockstrap while playing sports can indeed provide some penis … Read More

Ways to Help Men Recover From Divorce

Marriage is one of the most sacred institutions and divorce can be a serious emotional dent on a person. Though it can have a debilitating effect on both the partners, most people offer advice to women on how to cope with the loss. Men, on the other hand, are no less the sufferers of this legal and emotionally draining battle. They too are at the receiving end.

Sometimes, the signs of a marriage not working are there, but the couple overlook them and continue to the point of breakdown. Here are some tips for men to navigate through the divorce and salvage their self-esteem:

  1. Stopping to live in denial – If the wives initiate the divorce, most men are taken by surprise. This is because they have been living in a state of denial. It is important to accept the situation, only then one can face it with will and

The Importance of Getting Enough Sleep

Many people don’t get enough sleep at night because they’re “too busy” doing other things. Getting enough sleep is critically important to maintain good health, and to help you heal if you’ve got health issues. It’s also a major factor in preventing future health issues.

Facts About Sleep

More and more scientific research is coming out showing the importance of sleep, and how detrimental lack of sleep is to your health. Recent research has found that people who routinely sleep less than seven hours per night have 21-26% higher chance of dying of any cause, than people who routinely sleep more than eight hours per night.

Every single animal sleeps. There are no animals that do not sleep. Biologically, that means sleep is as important as breathing and eating.

There’s been some fascinating brain research recently that found out more about how the brain works and what it does at … Read More

Men have always had issues and it has always been a struggle in explaining their vision and ideas in life. Health is the most common issue for men that is often overlooked by both sexes. It is important to appreciate one’s health and well being as a man in order to prevent the body from being infected with various diseases and illnesses.
