If I actually make effort I lose weight easily, I just need to make that effort! I...

Don't dismiss holistic medicine

I was only 24 and my son just learned to walk but something wasn't just quite right. I had to set alarm to wake up at 1pm and during my day I consumed ridiculous amount of calories. A lot of food, a lot of sugar, a lot of soda and candies BUT I wouldn't gain weight. First, I thought nothing of it. But as things progressed I became increasingly uncomfortable. My heartbeat was so strong...

Biological Age, Chronological Age and Telomere Analysis

The difference between biological and chronological age is simple. Biological age refers to the health of our cells while the chronological age refers to the years one has attained. Lets say, an individual's bilogical age is 33.9 and his chronological age is 61. A bilogical age is 33.9 suggests that the cells of that individual are as healthy as those of an average 33-year-old, even though his actual age 61. Everyone loves to hear people...

Just wanted to add that Melatonin doesn't always work.  I've tried it, and it has bad side effects (the kind of interactions that Ambien has) with me ... sleep walking, sleep eating, memory loss, doing things I don't remember (when I tried it I ended up having to go through my email to see if I had sent or answered anything that I hadn't remembered). I know many people though who take it and swear...

Was wondering, does walking with sneakers negatively affect your joints like running in sneakers does? Or is walking in sneakers similar to walking in high heels (in terms of affecting the joints)?   Melissa.
