by: Cathy Taylor

Creating a “quality” menopause transition requires following certain guidelines to minimize its effects on women’s health. You probably know that this condition wrecks havoc on female anatomy creating chemical imbalances and overall discomfort for a period of time (both short and long).
Bouts of anxiety, physical symptoms such as hot flashes and vibrations ripping through the body, vaginal discomfort, relationship issues, and the realization that women are stepping into the next phase of their lives are critical changes one must face. Menopause and exercising proper women’s health can easily go hand in hand with a little extra effort...

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone Breast Implants

by: T.Going

Silicone Breast Implants
First used in the 1960’s, silicone breast implants provide what millions of women have desired throughout history; a fuller and shapelier chest. Prior attempts to change the size of breasts included fat transplants, paraffin implants and even direct injection of silicone. All of those attempts had fairly predictable results, but the new surgical silicone implant offered both safety (relative) and acceptable results.
Silicone is made by man and has had many uses including lubricants, adhesive sealants, silly putty and gaskets. When used in a breast implant silicone resembles the natural look and feel of real breast tissue. It was an obvious choice when the first breast implants were created.
However, problems with silicone ...

Lip Augmentation – The Raw Facts

Lip Augmentation – The Raw Facts

by: J O’Neal

Lip augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Last year, approximately 264,000 people underwent lip-plumping surgery. With fuller lips one can create a more youthful, vibrant look. This is primarily achieved through injections and grafting.
Injections: using small needles, the lip is filled with a soft substance to create a fuller appearance. The most widely used substance is collagen, which is found in cow skin. Although purified, collagen can cause allergic reactions in some patients.
A sensitivity test should always be performed prior to the actual procedure. Because the body slowly absorbs the collagen, results usually only last one to three months although the procedure can be repeated as many times as desired.

Vitamin C Can Prevent Pregnancy Complication

Vitamin C Can Prevent Pregnancy Complication

by: By Maureen Williams, ND

Women who supplement their diet with a small amount of vitamin C during the second half of pregnancy reduce their risk of one contributor to premature birth, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2005;81:859–63).
The end of pregnancy and the beginning of the birth process is marked by rupture of the walls (membranes) of the sac that holds the growing fetus and the amniotic fluid. A healthy pregnancy usually lasts about 40 weeks. Premature birth occurs when the membranes rupture and birth begins before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Smoking, vaginal infection, and poor maternal nutrition can all increase the risk of premature rupture of the membranes (PROM)...

Smoking During Pregnancy

Smoking During Pregnancy

by: Beverley Brooke

If you have been drinking up until the point when you become pregnant or smoking it is also vital that you stop doing so immediately.

Chances are that everything will be just fine as long as you stop immediately. At this time there are no recommended safe limits of alcohol to consume during pregnancy, thus it is best that you avoid alcohol all together.

History of the Baby Shower

History of the Baby Shower

by: Cathy Cripps

Although the exact history of baby showers is unknown, what we do know is that they are all special and the ideal way to celebrate new life. Historians have not been able to pinpoint the exact beginning of this custom but evidence has been discovered that leads us to believe that some type of baby shower took place in many ancient cultures to include the Roman and Egyptian eras.
During this time, newborn babies and the parents were presented with various types of handmade gifts. Even though we find “baby showers” occurring centuries ago, the baby shower that we know today was not popular until the end of World War II. Modern day baby showers are a wonderful time for family and friends to gather in celebration of new life.

The Fountain of Life Exercise

The Fountain of Life Exercise

by: Sam Stevens

An etheric body, also known as the aura, surrounds every human being. This energy field is thought to be made up of you’re the emanations of your life force, what the Middle Eastern religions call Prana, the Chinese call Chi and the popular religions call the Soul. An entire New Age cottage industry has sprung up around the idea of taking electromagnetic pictures of these phenomena using Kirilian or electromagnetic photography. Psychics and Channelers take cues from the colors revealed in these photographs to diagnose and interpret physical, spiritual and emotional conditions.
The most prominent element of Etheric Body, or soul-structure as it is also known, is said to consist of the aura itself, which is said to typical extend about three fe...

5 Things You Shouldn’t Do If He’s Cheating on You

by: Ruth Houston

This may be the most important article you’ll read about dealing with your husband’s affair. There’s plenty of information available on what to do if your husband is cheating. But very little has been written about the things you shouldn’t do.

7 Mistakes That Will Ruin a Professional Image

7 Mistakes That Will Ruin a Professional Image

by: Sheila Dicks

Some of us are aware of it and some us are not. What is it? Image mistakes. A successful career depends on good grooming and self-care.

A polished look means being polished from head to toe not neck to toe. A neatly groomed person wearing a great, well-fitting suit can commit image suicide when she forgets to attend to her hair and makeup. Hair, makeup and wardrobe should be in harmony or professionalism is brought into question. By harmony I mean the hairstyle should be the same style as the clothing, sporty clothing – sporty hairdo, professional clothing – professional hairdo. For example, long, straight hair when worn down will look good on most occasions...
