Women's Health Advice: Discover Anti Aging Vitamins™

Image
Women age as their body cells die and when new healthy cell generation is hindered simultaneously. Premature aging can result from inadequate nutrition caused by years of poor dietary habits. Why? Because our bodies need certain amounts of vitamins to produce healthy cells and repair damaged cells. For many women, healthy cells can promote anti aging more than anything elseFree Radicals: Enemies to Your Anti Aging EffortsWhen your diet lacks the vitamins needed for healthy cell rejuvenation, it will produce high amounts of free radicals, or highly reactive oxygen molecules. Free radicals will attack your healthy cells, thus, accelerating the aging process. Foods high in fat content, pesticides and ultraviolet radiation exposure can also contribute to free radical production and hinder your anti aging efforts.Vitamins for Anti AgingVitamins have been a source of good women's health for years, but new discoveries through the cutting edge science in genomics reveal that certain amoun…

Early Menopause Linked to Smoking™

Image
Women who smoke are likely to undergo menopause at a younger age than nonsmokers, according to the findings of two studies involving more than 3,500 middle-aged women in seven countries.In fact, the studies showed, the more a woman smokes, the earlier her menopause is likely to occur. The average age for menopause in women who have quit smoking was found to fall between that of light smokers (half a pack a day) and that of women who never smoked.Most women in developed countries stop menstruating between the ages of 44 and 54, with the average age around 50. In one of the studies, the researchers found that at ages 48 to 49, a woman who smokes a pack or more a day is nearly twice as likely to be past menopause as a woman who never smoked. At ages 50 to 51, 79 per cent of the women who smoked a pack or more a day were past menopause, as against 56 per cent of those who never smoked.This "striking association" between smoking and the onset of menopause was accidentally discove…

Wedding Hair Style – Achieve The Perfect Beautiful, But Formal Look™

Image
With formal hairstyling trends taking a step back from the rigidly crafted styles of yesterday, today's wedding hair styles are free, natural and a great deal easier to attain than they were a few years ago. But even though this is true, the bridal hair style is probably the most important style that you are going to choose for quite a while so it is best served by a little research and practice before the big day. On your wedding day, hundreds of eyes will be on you, and your chosen bridal hair style can either complete the picture or detract from it. That is why it is so important to choose the perfect formal hairstyle well in advance of the big day so that you and your stylist can get it right and make custom additions to your wedding hair style. Nothing is worse than a hastily crafted coif decided upon only minutes before the ceremony. You can begin your search for the perfect bridal hair styles and bridesmaid hair styles by browsing through style books that highlight formal u…

The Engagement Ring Etiquette Survival Guide Offers Advice for the Smoooooth Brotha™

Image
Engagement ring etiquette is oh so important, because your chick will be retelling the story of all the details related to her engagement ring and proposal over and over and over....i'm not joking. Here are some common questions that guys have about engagement ring etiquette.

1) Who pays for the ring ?

Sorry guys, but you are supposed to foot the entire bill. Plus, you can use this as leverage for the next fifty years when your wife asks you what you've done for her lately. You can point to her ring and recount the many hours you toiled saving up for it. If your financial situation sucks, consider gettting a less expensive ring now and upgrading later or taking out a loan. Is it fair? No, but life isn't always fair.

2) Must the engagement ring be a surprise or does the bride pick out her own ring ?

The ring does not necessarily have to be a surprise. In the past, engagement ring etiquette dictated that the man choose the ring, and then presentit if the woman accepted his marri…

Short Hair Style ? Make It Stylish, Sexy And Chic™

Image
Short hair style ? Make it stylish, sexy and chicIn all of its transformations and variations, the short hair style has always been numbered at the top of the list when it comes to versatility, style and manageability. No other style catches the eye quite like the short hair style and no other style makes the wearer look as professional, chic and sexy as the short hair style Short hair styles worn by women are a fairly new style trend when compared with women's hair styles in general. In fact, cropped styles only came to the forefront of fashion a little more than 50 years ago. Since that time, the short hair style has given women the freedom to express themselves in numerous ways. From the funky and spiked to the soft and feminine, the short hair style can be worn by any woman of any personality, style and age. Short hair no matter what the ageIt has long been a held belief that an older woman should wear a short hair style to make her appear younger. While there is some truth in…

Menstrual Cycles And Ovarian Cysts™

Image
In the post-menopausal group, I would say 50 percent of those are going to have a cancer risk associated with the cyst, and certainly as one gets older than 50, that increase goes markedly up. Certainly if a 75-year-old woman came in with any type of cyst, that should be looked into aggressively. So the problem in management really is when you have a prepubital girl who comes in and has a documented large cyst, you're going to operate. The post-menopausal woman is going to be followed very aggressively and most likely, she's going to be operated on. The key in management is, the challenge is, well how do you manage the reproductive age group? Which is the majority of where these cysts show up and we'll talk about here, that in a minute.

But I want to say something about the size of cysts. And a cyst depends on your definition. We've already said that a cyst is a fluid filled sac, but how big is it? Clearly it's any size, but most likely a cyst is going to be visible…

Vaginal Odor May Cause Serious Problems If Left Untreated™

Image
Vaginal odor may limit sexual activity in a relationship; the woman feels uncomfortable, and the man becomes a little distant. However, the vagina has a distinct smell that is not a problem. Each girl has a particular vaginal smell; it is natural. Even when you notice a recent difference in its smell, it is not necessarily an infection. That change may be linked to a specific moment of your menstrual cycle because the smell of your vagina can vary depending on the time of the cycle.A healthy vagina always emerges a discrete odor at one time or another. It is normal that it has a certain odor sometimes. Whether this natural smell is neutral or not, it is a matter of personal judgment. In fact, some women notice their odor when there is no notable odor detected by their partners. However, if the odor changes and becomes strongly unpleasant (repugnant fishy vaginal odor), this change deserves attention because it is perhaps a sign of a serious vaginal infection. Left untreated, this cond…

Pine Wood Furniture is the Most Elegant Furniture™

Image
Pine trees could be the most abundant tree species in the world. Using and patronizing pine wood furniture is environmentally sustainable because it does not threaten the extinction of this species. Some companies manufacturing it label themselves as "Carbon Neutral" because they support and maintain tree plantations that help absorb ozone-depleting gases.Pines are endemic in the northern hemisphere and the tropical regions just above the equator. Nevertheless, some pine trees are found across the border of the southern hemisphere, specifically in Sumatra. Today, pine trees have become an invasive species in the southern hemisphere after massive plantations are established in the Latin America region, in Africa, and down beyond the equator until New Zealand and the Australian continent.A pine tree could grow as tall as 80 meters (average is 15-45 meters height) and could live in thousands of years. The oldest known standing tree is the Pinus longaeva, popularly known as the …

It adds a whole layer of new memories to the place where you feel most at home.Many brides also think that having a wedding at home will be more affordable than at a country club or other venue. Actually, the opposite is usually true, because you have to rent or purchase each and every thing at your wedding, whereas venues will provide you with many of the basics, such as china and linens. You may find having a wedding planner to coordinate the many details to be an invaluable investment.One of the biggest (in size and price) items at a backyard wedding is the tent.
