The Importance of CPR Training for Parents

A chiropractor is defined as a health care device with a professional touch for the diagnosis and intensive treatment of neuromuscular disorders. Their emphasis is on neuromuscular disorders, especially spine.

Most of the chiropractors are used as a pain reliever for the patients. That is why it has been given the title of being an alternative medicine to the subjected treatment.

Chiropractors firmly and honestly believe in the kind of relationship that developed between our nervous system and spine, this does not come as a surprise as we have already mentioned that the major area of focus for the chiropractor is the spine.

Here is the listing of few of the benefits received from Chiropractic health care

1. A great boost for stress reliever

It is a well known fact that too much of stress will always result in a bad outcome. Neither is it good for health nor is it good for our well being. When our nervous system moves out a bit from the track and our skeletal system seems to have shaken off from their proper position, there are very high possibilities that your entire body will feel out of balance as well. This is what will lead to stress in your entire functioning of the body. Here is when the functioning of a Chiropractor comes into use. It helps in balancing that stress and your body is immediately made to come back to its normal balance. Once you are made to adjust to this functioning you will feel much more equipped to manage this stress if it happens to arise again.

2. Posture perfection by Chiropractor usage

By using this chiropractor over a considerable period of time, these chiropractor adjustments can help in the alignments of the spine and brings a noticeable change in your posture. This is distinctly helpful when it comes to aligning the curve on your neck. As soon as you get into your working in an office phase, you have to spend hours after hours in front of a computer. Due to this from a very young age, people are seen to be having neck issues. If you continue a regular and dutifully maintained use of the chiropractor, you can improve your body posture in no time.

3. Moods are taken care of automatically

When with time your body gets adjusted with the working procedure of the chiropractor, your entire body gets balanced. The entire chemistry of the body is brought back on track. A lot of people who have not had the best of luck in chemical balance gain a lot from the chiropractic care. Depression which is a very serious mental condition also sees an immense improvement in the moods of the sufferer. So you see how a chiropractor is creating wonders in your mood related cases as well which are in a way related to the functioning of your entire body.

Thus we provide you with a gist of all that you can mainly expect from the usage of a chiropractor. It is efficient and it is useful and it is interlinked with many a thing's improvement.

Is the Olive Oil in your Cabinet Real?

There was a study done at UC Davis Olive Center in 2010 that discovered that 69% of the olive oils tested were not exactly what they said they were and did not meet legal standards in the United States.

There have been several additional studies done since then, that have shown the same thing, that a good amount of the olive oils in the united states market are mislabeled and are not what they say they are.

There are oils on the market that have been blended with older, lesser grade oils or they have been blended with vegetable or seed oils and then chemically colorized, flavored and deodorized before bottling. Some oils aren't olive at all, they are seed or soy oils that have had beta carotene and chlorophyll added to make it taste like olive oil.

Most recently, in 2016 there was a 60 Minute program aired that showed that almost all of the olive oils on the shelves are somehow mislabeled.

So how do you know whether the oil that you are buying is good? Well, there are a few ways to tell.

One way to determine a good oil, is to read the bottle and see where it comes from. Most of the time, the bottle will say that the oil is a blend from several countries, you don't want that oil, put it back on the shelf. You don't even want to buy the oil if the bottle just lists one country. What you are looking for on the bottle, is an oil that says it came from a family farm, in that case you can be reasonably sure that it is real.

Make sure it comes in a dark bottle, this helps to shield the oil from light that can cause it to become rancid.

Good brands will also put a harvest date on the bottle, this helps to ensure that it is fresh. Make sure that the harvest date is not any more than 15 months out, which means it is starting to get old.

Also look for a certification seal on the bottle showing that it passed sensory and chemistry testing.

The oil should be extra virgin olive oil and say it is a 1st processing or 1st press.

What are some good brands to look for?

California Olive Ranch, McEvoy Ranch and Cobram Estate are a few good olive oils that you can try.

The experts at the Human Nutrition Research Center tested different fruits and veggies in order to find out their ORAC, which refers to the antioxidant power. If you want to find out the results of the research, you may want to read on.


Research showed that black plums offer an impressive amount of 4,873 antioxidants. On the other hand, half a cup of dried black plums contains 7,290 antioxidants. So, you may want to consume prunes on a regular basis.


In the same way, each serving of red grape comes with 2,016 antioxidants. Moreover, raisins have 2,490.


Blueberries offer a lot more antioxidants. For instance, eating just one cup of blueberries will give you 13,427 antioxidants. On the other hand, the framed blueberries contain 9,019 in just one cup.


As far as antioxidants are concerned, blackberries are on top of the list. However, you should keep in mind that they also have polyols that are known to cause abdominal problems.


Just like raspberries and blueberries, strawberries contain a lot of antioxidants that protect your cells from different types of cancers.


If you want to boost your protein, you may want to go for fruits and veggies that have a lot of ellagic acid, such as raspberries.


You should choose the black plums because they offer 4,873 antioxidants in just one serving. However, prunes offer a bit more of it.


Oranges, peaches, mangoes, and watermelons have a lot of beta-cryptoxanthin that lower your risk of arthritis by 20 to 40%.


Cherries are on the list of an ideal source of melatonin. It protects your skin from the UV radiation of the sun. Moreover, this nutrient also repairs your sunburned skin as it boosts the growth of new skin cells. Moreover, cherries also come with vitamin C that develops collagen, which prevents wrinkles.


Kale is heavy with cancer-fighting vitamins and antioxidants. Besides, it contains beta-carotene. It is also the best combination of both zeaxanthin and lutein.


Rich in carotenoids, spinach boosts the health of your eyes in addition to help you prevent macular degeneration. So, you are less likely to have blindness.

Brussels Sprouts

Brussles sprouts come with lots of sulforaphane and the compounds known as isothiocyanates. It detoxifies the substances that cause cancer. A study found that consuming Brussels sprouts on a daily basis for 3 weeks reduce 28% of genetic damage.

Alfafa Sprouts

Alfafa sprouts have a lot of beta-carotene, which protects you from lung cancer and promotes healthy hair, skin, gums, teeth, bones and glands. Aside from this, it's a great source of vitamin E that prevents heart attacks and reduces the risk of death due to bladder cancer.

So, if you have been looking for a list of fruits and vegetables to get antioxidants in a natural manner, we suggest that you check out the foods given above. They will provide you with the required amount of antioxidants and you will be able to prevent a lot of diseases down the road without any problem.

People get hickeys on all sort of places but the real problem arises when the Hickey is such a place where it is visible. It might not be that big of a medical problem but it can certainly develop into one social problem. It may cause you a lot of embarrassment especially if you are a teenager or have cheated on your partner. And by my reckoning, a kiss mark on your neck certainly falls into that category. What prompted me to write this guide was the question How to Remove Kiss Marks from Neck? on and a lot of people seemed to be worried. You need to remain calm and if you use your head right, it's actually not big of a problem.

Without further talking, let's discuss what ways and methods can be used to easily get rid of the love bites.

Biologically speaking, a hickey on a neck is similar to a hickey on any other part of the body. So, all the conventional methods can be applied to get rid of love bites from the neck as well. If you want your hickeys to go away, you should try to hide them. Because no matter what, it would take time for it to be cured. It's like any other bruise, and bruises take the time to heal.

Ice the hickey - If you got the hickey less than 12 hours ago, the recommended method to use is cold compress method. You have to ice the Hickey to get the redness away. You can do that by putting an ice-cube in the spoon and rubbing the back of the spoon around your Hickey first in the clockwise direction and then in the anticlockwise direction for 2 minutes. Read the complete guide on getting rid of a hickey you got less than 24 hours ago.
Apply the toothpaste to get rid of kiss mark - Now get a tooth past and apply the layer of it. It would tingle a bit so do not be worried. Remove it after 10 minutes with a warm towel. It would help to remove the kiss mark from the neck.
Eat Vitamin K rich food - Eat nutrition rich food especially the food which is rich in Vitamin K. It is believed that Vitamin K helps in getting rid of a hickey.
Apply the Heat Pack to the Skin - If the kiss mark has stuck for more than 2 days or so, you should apply the heat pack method. The rationale behind using this method is that the blood vessels heal within 48 hours and penetration of blood in that area can make the hickey on neck disappear.
Place the heat pack on the hickey mark for several minutes i.e. 10-15 minutes.
Apply the concealer to blend the redness into the skin.

Make sure that the heat pack or the towel is not too hot as it can give skin burns. You have to be careful with this method.

Best Method is to Hide the Hickey - If you are in deep trouble the best advice for you is to hide Hickey. Read the complete guide on covering up hickeys.

Around new year 2017 I made a pledge: To quit the gym and get fit.

I know this sounds like a slightly odd inverted new years resolution, but for around 5 years I had been a committed gymphile (not sure that's a word but there you go). My physique hadn't changed radically except for slightly better arm definition and on occasion slightly better pecs. But for the effort I was putting in, not to mention the money, it wasn't really worth the return on investment.

And what's happened since I've quit the gym? Well, I've drunk a lot of beer, eaten a lot of cheese and done some very half assed exercise regimes.

The result. I'm about the same as I was when I was going to the gym.

The response from many gym go-ers will undoubtedly be, well you weren't putting enough effort in at the gym or else you've been quite good with your self motivation.

Neither of those statements are true.

I used to go to the gym three times a week and put in an hour at a time - working hard on each set and making sure every minute in there was put to good use. I walked out of the gym dripping with sweat every time I went. Literally. Every. Time.

So my self motivation post gym has been good? Well. I used to run home from work on a weekly basis (about a 5 mile run). Aside from that and some runs around the park. That's it.

So why do I think you should quit the gym?

First of all, if you're one of those people who does about 2 hours, 4 times a week in the gym and posts selfies on Instagram of you in gym gear - this does not apply.

If you're one of those people who goes for the social and seems to know everyone in the place and is full of tips and stuff... Probably doesn't apply to you either.

I'm talking to the other 90% of the population - the people who go because they feel like they should. The people who when they get to the gym just go through the motions and do a few sets of this or that, or worse still just SIT on an exercise bike.

You've probably been sat at a desk all day eating cake and you're watching the calories tick up on the digital display, waiting til it gets to the same number as that Krispy Kreme so you can go home.

Or, you've got to lose a stone so you can go on that beach holiday/get in that wedding dress/eat more cake on your birthday.

Or you saw a photo of Kate Middleton in a bikini on holiday somewhere glamorous again and decided you hate your flabby body and you really should do something about it.

Don't get me wrong these are all noble reasons to get exercising - and exercise you definitely should. But in the gym? Not necessarily.

The gym is made for those body sculptors - the people who have actual fitness regimes and programs and have an end goal. And they will get to that end goal because, well, that's what they really really want. When they're not in the gym they're planning their next visit to the gym and ACTUALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

Is that you? If it isn't do yourself a favour and cancel your gym membership now.

What do I do now then?

Cancelled it? Saving yourself £60 a month already? Go you! Have a doughnut.

I'm joking don't have a doughnut, that's a terrible idea.


First things first - it's your diet. Hate to break it to you but that's probably why you're a bit flabby around the edges. If it comes in a packet and has ingredients that you don't really understand - avoid it. If it claims boldly on the cover to be packed full of minerals and vitamins and to make you at least 6 times more attractive to the opposite sex - avoid it. Those 'healthy' breakfast bars and cereals or those low fat thingumyjigs. Swerve it.

So what to eat? Eat natural food. And not loads of it either.

Also drink water. Don't go crazy, 2 litres is the recommended amount - about 4 pints of water.

But, you know when you're thirsty? Have some water.


When you're taking in decent fuel for your body and not pumping it full of additives, you won't have to work so hard to process it. This makes the exercise bit relatively easy.

My routine was this.

Every day I'd walk to the nearest tube station, which is about a fifteen minute walk away. I'd then get to my very sedentary work, get to lunch and then on my 45 minute lunch break I would walk as much as possible. Some days that was 5 or 10 minutes. Other days it was my whole lunch break. And then when I got home I'd either walk back home or I'd go for a run.

Total active time daily was around 1 hour 30 or more.

To amp up any exercise regime it is often a good idea to have fun while you're doing it.

I've recently discovered parkour. Yes, parkour is famous for the people doing backflips and jumping across roofs but at it's foundations it is simply a way to get from a to b in a slightly more interesting way. I'll be honest, I'm not backflipping or rolling yet, but what I am doing is jumping onto things, pulling myself up walls or trees or doing press ups and sit ups in the park.

Basically, I'm doing resistance exercise. Trying to use my body for the things it was meant to be used for - climbing, jumping, lifting. But... Without paying a hefty monthly fee to do so.

Ways to get free exercise

There are plenty of ways you can exercise and not pay a penny. Parkour, for me, is a good one as it literally involves running outside and when I get to a bench I jump on and off it for a bit. Or if I see a tree or a fence I climb or vault it.

If you live in the country - or a smaller city nearer the country - good for you. You can probably run up hills, climb trees, swim in the sea or a river and so all kinds of free things.

In the big city it can be harder.

Running is a good start but some people find this can impact on their joints, especially without proper warm ups.

The simplest one is walking. Just walk as much as possible, as fast as possible and do it every day. Supplement it with some exercise outdoors and if you can do maybe ten or twenty sit ups and press ups too, you'll find some good results.

Taking up a sport is probably the best way to stay in shape. Football, volleyball, dodgeball, cycling, tennis, yoga, pilates, swimming, gymnastics, hide the sausage... OK maybe not hide the sausage, but basically anything that keeps you moving and having fun.

Actually yeah maybe hide the sausage.

However you do it, get some exercise and crucially, don't do it at the gym. Unless you NEED a weights rack to sculpt those tight buns of yours, you're only wasting your money.

When the arteries and veins of the sinuses swell and expand, there is nasal congestion and sinus which becomes worse as days pass by. A lot of unwanted material thus remains entrapped in the nasal passage resulting in blockage like mucus, air and pus. A person having this sinus problem experiences pain and extreme discomfort and the pain usually starts from under the eye region and moves towards the jaw and can also be mistaken as either a headache or toothache.

Sinus be caused due to many reasons like allergies, bacterial, fungal and viral infections and the mucus that accumulates in the nasal passage and inflames the nose. Also, people experience runny nose along with headache and jaw ache and also fever and flu, sometimes along with bad breath as the nasal lined with thick secretions and becomes a cause to congestion. If these conditions are not treated at the right time, serious complications can develop.

Although, because of the advancing science and technology, there are many antibiotics and medicines that can help in reducing this problem. However, these medicines if used for a prolonged time can really be threatening as these medicines can also have an adverse effect on your health and well-being. Therefore, there are some natural remedies for relieving sinus problems and they can work positively and can help in the removal of this problem.

Cause For Nasal Congestion:

Nasal congestion can occur when a person is allergic to something or has a kind of allergic reaction. It can also be caused from flu, fever and influenza. Some people tend being allergic to hay, pollen and grass, and this type of allergy is known as hay-fever. Some medications and antibiotics can as well result in nasal congestion. Sinus infection in a person is the major cause of nasal congestion. There are different names what nasal congestion is given, such as stuffed nose, stuffy nose, nasal blockage, nasal obstruction, blocked nose etc.

If not treated properly at its early stage, nasal congestion can become dangerous.

Not only it blocks the nose and hinders our smelling sense, but also it can interfere with our ears, hearing ability and thus can also make it difficult for us to deliver an eloquent speech. During sleep, a person who has nasal congestion is likely to snore and can also result in breathing difficulty which arises when there is lack of oxygen levels, and this can affect the working of the heart too, resulting in heart dysfunction.

Surgery is a treatment option which can help overcome this problem as the doctors remove tonsils and adenoids, which can cause a great deal of discomfort in a person's life, with frequent complains of facial and head pain. Although, an operation should always be the very last option as any operation is a risk factor.

Sinus Natural Remedies

One major step to treating sinus problems through natural means is the nasal irrigation method in which the inflaming nasal passage is rinsed and all the allergy developing materials and pollen as well as other bacteria are effectively removed from the nasal passage.

Another treatment for sinus is inhaling of steam. Breath in steam vapor, steam inhalation will break up thick mucus. Essential oils can help infection.

A few drops of eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender, tea tree, oregano, sweet basil or peppermint oil in steamy hot water can give excellent results. Put a towel over your head and inhale the steam. Or you can use a humidifier by adding a few drops of any of the oils to the water.

Horseradish will help to clear up mucus from your nose as well congestion from the chest. Use a chunk of horseradish root, grind or use rasp and shred fine. Two tablespoons apple cider vinegar, less or more depending on the amount of horseradish, add one tablespoon of water. Pinch of natural salt or to your own taste. Stir the ingredients together. Eat one teaspoon of this three times a day. Refrigerate the rest in a glass jar.

The most efficient way to end this sinus problem and prevent its recurrence is to kill the allergy or sinus causing agents present in the nasal passage and also take care of your immunity system. This is why people mostly opt for natural remedies. Working on your nasal passage by alternate hot and cold compressing is also effective and repeatedly done five or six times a day can really ease your problem.

Apple cider vinegar: Add about three tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar to a cup of hot water and drink two to three times per day. As well apple cider vinegar has many other benefits besides reliving sinus pressure.

Airborne allergens in the house such as animal dander, dust, mold as well as carpet which is one of the worst culprits.


Inflammation and congestion of the sinus can come from a dietary irritant like gluten, dairy, sugar and many other artificial additives in processed foods. Medical profession treats sinus infection with antibiotics, steroids, anti-inflammatory medication, and even surgery. Most of these treatments have a high potential to become more harmful than not.

According to a recent study, published in Stem Cell Reports on April 6, a new set of improved tools are here to advance stem cell researches. The study was led by Dr. Kelly Frazer, the professor of pediatrics and director of the Institute for Genomic Medicine at University of California San Diego School of Medicine. The team described the collection of "222 systematically derived and characterized iPSC lines generated as part of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's NextGen consortium."

The Stem Cell Reports is one of the four studies, published by four different teams of researchers. But Frazer is the common factor in all four as he is senior author for all of them. The fourth study concentrated on iPSCORE, whereas the other three studies utilized the iPSCORE resource in order to explore answers to different questions related to human genetics. Some of the studies also focused on developing new tools to analyze iPSC lines.

The study confirmed that the induced pluripotent stem cells or iPSCs are collected from human adult cells. These cells are able to be differentiated in order to transform into a variety of cell types. By using this attribute, the scientists will be able to use the tool for all critical medical trails; from analyzing molecular processes that cause diseases to genetic variants that lead to human phenotypes.

According to Kelly Frazer, the iPSC Collection for Omic Research or iPSCORE is a collection that will be capable to address various issues that are currently disturbing iPSCs use as a standard system to study human genetics.

He mentioned in the study, "The iPSCORE collection contains 75 lines from people of non-European ancestry, including East Asian, South Asian, African American, Mexican American, and Multiracial. It includes multigenerational families and monozygotic twins. This collection will enable us to study how genetic variation influences traits, both at a molecular and physiological level, in appropriate human cell types, such as heart muscle cells. It will help researchers investigate not only common but also rare, and even family-specific variations."

Frazer and his team utilized the entire genome sequencing and gene expression analyzing 215 human iPSC lines, derived from different donors. The idea was to identify genetic variants related to RNA expression for 5,746 genes. The study highlighted that iPSCs are valuable to analyze genetic association investigate gene expression genetic regulation in pluripotent stem cells (PSCs). The team also showed important analysis and insights into aberrant methylation patterns in iPSCs. The patterns are helpful to use these cells in various studies as well as to treat diseases.

Another important thing to note in the study is, Frazer and his team built a set of easy-to-use techniques to decrease the cost and at the same time increase the production of effective iPSC lines. In other words, the group of scientists has invented a less expensive technique to develop highly effective iPSC lines. So, the invention will not only help the doctors to detect the source of the disease effectively, but also will help the medical teams to opt for it.

Parenting is not an easy task, and you'll need to be committed all the way. Whether you have a newborn or a toddler, you need to be prepared on how to respond to an emergency situation that may arise.

Why Get Trained?

As a parent, the first step into learning how to handle any situation that may occur regarding your child or even your neighbor's kid is to get enrolled for training and obtain a CPR Certification as well as a First Aid Certification. The training gives all parents, the knowledge and skills much-needed about CPR and how the procedure should be performed and when it's actually required.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) involves chest compressions and ventilation (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation). Be sure to note that CPR is a fundamental part of the First Aid procedures and every professional or parent caring for children should be trained and obtain the knowledge in the method.

Learning CPR and first aid can, in turn, save someone's life especially the little ones (babies) that you adore and love. The CPR course for parents involves learning the proper techniques required to perform CPR procedure on an infant or child correctly. By doing so, it increases the rate of survival. Why is that? It ensures that enough blood is flowing to the heart, brain, and other vital organs to prevent further damage such as brain injury or heart failure to your kid.

By having a CPR Certification as a parent can make a lot of difference. Why? Not only does it boost your confidence, but it also ensures that you take a quick action when a child emergency arises without much hesitation. Also, aFirst Aid Certification will be useful for a life-threatening situation because you can perform first aid action like stopping your child's excessive bleeding before the professional medical arrives.

When to Perform CPR on your Child?

Most adult cases, CPR is needed for SCA (sudden cardiac arrest) due to heart attack, while infants and kids need CPR because of respiratory issues. This issues can further lead to cardiac arrest, and if not noticed, it can be fatal.

As a parent be sure to take CPR measures when you see that your baby's breathing or heartbeat suddenly stops. Some emergency situations include:

Near drowning
Obstructive apnea
Smoke inhalation
Severe asthma
Electrical shock
These are just, but a few emergency situations that need CPR and when performed immediately, it can be most successful in saving your kid's life. You ought to perform CPR when the baby or infant is unconscious or not breathing normally. In other words, when you notice minimal signs of life.

Child safety experts argue that most kid's accidents are preventable. Most children (below the age of 14 years) die almost every year due to lack of knowledge in administering first aid or basic emergency CPR by their parents or caregivers.

Do you want to be that parent that ignores your kid and later on regrets when the undone has happened? I bet you are not. So, get yourself an Online CPR Certification or a First Aid Certification and start saving children lives no matter where you are.
