Winter Skin Care Tips

Content about Skin care

Invest in a humidifier or for an inexpensive solution, place plants around the room. A humidifier can add much needed moisture to dry air. Plants with large leaves can also effectively increase moisture in the air (after you water them, the water diffused up the stem and out into the air). Another solution is to place bowls of water in the room that you spend most of your time in. The water will evaporate and add moisture to the air. Protect your skin from the cold and the wind with scarves, hats and gloves. Clothing can make a big difference but avoid wearing wool and other rough materials next to the skin.

Cleanse your digestive system the easy way by eating kitchari

If you’re one of them, use this to your advantage and start to play around with eliminating certain of your usual options for a week at a time to see how symptoms are affected. I’d prioritize highly-processed or functional foods (cereals, bars, shakes); anything with added sugar or sweeteners; and foods containing bean family ingredients including soy. If dairy is a staple, try swapping in lactose-free versions for a week to see if that makes a difference. Resist the temptation to eliminate multiple foods at a time; otherwise, you’ll be hard-pressed to identify the smoking gun if your symptoms spontaneously improve. [Read: IBS? Could be the FODMAPs .] Pay attention to timing. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of a written food and symptom journal that captures times of both food eaten and symptoms experienced.

Getting In Touch With Your Inner Digestive Detective

Science Activity Assessment Creating a digestive system tee shirt is an activity that can be assessed with a variety of methods. Self assessments and peer assessments allow students to examine how well they did both to their own standards and by evaluating each other’s work. Analytical rubrics provide more detail than a grade alone and allow for assessment not only of their anatomy knowledge but also creativity, drawing skills, and attention to detail. Another part to the assessment is a display, not on the bulletin board but with living models. Encourage students to all wear their digestive system tee shirt to school on the same day. This active modeling is a fun way to share their project with the school and demonstrate their understanding of the digestive system.

Mental Health Officials: Focus On Funding, Priorities

Mental Health America of McLean County sponsored the event that explored the future of behavioral health care in Illinois and its impact on local services. Among those who came to Fridays event at the Osborn Room of the Bloomington Police Department was Bloomington Assistant Police Chief Clay Wheeler, who said a majority of police calls deal with mental health-related problems. I wish there was a better way of dealing with people other than having them arrested. If they could receive some form of standardized care, we probably would not be dealing with them so often, said Wheeler.

The need for help: Social boundaries, premiums hinder mental health treatment

We are big compared to other nonprofits, but in the big scheme of things, we still feel really small up against the big social issues, said Hoyer, the executive director. This year, the agency had to institute a waiting list for the first time in 12 years. In past years, Pathways, MI provided about $100,000 worth of free and reduced service. Were getting close to double that, Hoyer said. Hoyer said many Pathways, MI patients make too much money to qualify for services at Community Mental Health, but have such high deductible for mental health coverage that they cant afford private care. They come in and theyre insured, but for all intents and purposes, they are not, Hoyer said.

Thousands march over mental health unit in Galway

It was the latest demonstration of public anger across east Galway and the midlands at the controversial move by the HSE to instead use the 2.8 million refurbished building primarily for administration purposes. The Psychiatric Nurses Association criticised the decision and pointed out that the Ballinasloe facility had been custom built to specific requirements for acutely ill patients. This was constructed as one of the most modern mental health facilities in the country. It is a ligature-free environment and was built with acute patients in mind, said PNA National Secretary, Noel Giblin . Mr Giblin added: All of the fixtures and fittings are sledge-proof, meaning they cannot be broken even by a sledge hammer, and I understand that there is bullet-proof perspex in the nurses stations. It beggars belief that this would be used for anything else other than an acute mental health unit. If effectively means that there is no high dependency unit for mental health patients in the Galway-Roscommon region.

Alopecia: For Women Experiencing Hair Loss, Effective Treatments Are Available

The reasons for alopecia are varied and can be related to heredity, hormone levels, medications, autoimmune problems and just plain aging, she said. Stevens assumes her hair loss is hereditary since both her mother and sister experienced it. Treatments for alopecia include pharmacologic drugs such as minoxidil, known as Rogaine, which helps stabilize the hair cycle; steroid injections; surgical hair replacement; wigs or weaves; and cosmetic products such as temporary dyes to camouflage thinness. Stevens said she had tried nearly everything, but nothing helped.
