4 Ways To Avoid Constipation In Your Diet

Author: Anonym
Constipation is a very common problem. Each year more than 2.5 million Americans visit their healthcare provider. They do this for relief from symptoms. This condition refers to a change in bowel habits, but it has varied meanings. Stools may be too hard or too small, difficult to pass, or infrequent (less than three times per week). People with constipation may also notice a frequent need to strain and a sense that the bowels are not empty. Many factors can contribute to or cause constipation, although in most people, no single cause can be found. In general, constipation occurs more often as you get older or as a side effect of medications. Diseases like Diabetes Mellitus, Hypothyroidism, Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis are also associated with constipation.

Is Your Heart on Fire or Failing?

Author: Anonym
Heartburn or heart attack?  Both conditions have the word heart in them, but they are different clinical entities.  Heartburn is due to digestive acid from the stomach that may reflux back into the esophagus.  Reports indicate that up to 15 million Americans have symptoms of heartburn daily.  A heart attack occurs in the setting of coronary artery disease leading to diminished blood flow to the heart.  Coronary artery disease affects up to 20 million individuals in the United States and close to one million individuals will have a heart attack each year.   Since the stomach and heart are both in the chest area, both can present with chest pain or to some even as acid reflux.
