Exercise: Is it a Breeze or a Wheeze?

Have you ever been out on a great walk or run, when you were interrupted by wheezing? Or perhaps after your workout you started wheezing and/or coughing. This is frustrating, and it can be serious! If this has happened to you, you’re not alone! Over 14 million people in the United States are affected by a chronic lung disease asthma. Contrary to popular belief, asthma is not just for kids. Adults in their 30s and 40s, and even seniors can (and do) develop asthma. Asthma is characterized by three airway problems: obstruction, inflammation, and hyperresponsiveness. Airway obstruction is responsible for the wheezing and coughing associated with asthma. It is believed that airway obstruction is initiated by inflammatory events in the airway. Airway inflamation is brought on by the release of histamine from the mast cells, and causes the glands within the inner walls of the lungs to produce excess mucus…

About D.O.’s

If you’re like most people, you’ve been going to a doctor ever since you were born and perhaps not aware whether you were seeing a D.O. (Osteopathic Physician) or an M.D. (Allopathic Physician). You may not even be aware that there are these two types of complete spine physicians in the New Jersey. The fact is, both D.O.’s and M.D.’s are complete physicians. They are both licensed to perform surgery and prescribe medication in all 50 states. Is there any difference between these two kinds of a doctor? Yes and No. How are D.O.’s and M.D’s alike Applicants to both D.O. and M.D. colleges typically have a four-year undergraduate degree with an emphasis on science courses. Both D.O.’s and M.D.’s complete four years of basic medical education. After medical school both D.O.’s and M.D.’s can choose to practice in a specialty area of medicine such as psychiatry, surgery, or obstetrics…

Todd’s Personal Fitness History

I decided to take on working out with weights, learning about nutrition and performing regular cardiovascular exercise as a way of life. The energy and vigor that I gained from making this my lifestyle fueled my desire to help others gain the same results I was reaping. I quit my stressful job (at one of the largest insurance companies in the world) and returned to Boise State University. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Health Promotion in 1997. We do not offer one standard plan, as we are all individuals with individual needs. Although bodybuilding is my primary hobby, I understand that it probably is not yours. My job is to design programs and provide sensible dietary suggestions that work best for each person we work with, regardless of age, size or gender.This education and experience has helped me to literally change the lives of hundreds of people…

Shooting Rover: Tips for Great Pet Photography

Who doesn’t love capturing great shots of their pets—whether dogs, cats, ferrets or parrots? But let’s face it, animals have a mind of their own, and getting good pictures can be a challenge. If your pets are anything like mine, the instant you point a camera in their direction, they either run up to explore the lens, or take off for their favorite hiding place. However, if you use our techniques, you’re sure to get at least one great photo of your favorite critter. Stock up on your pet’s favorite treat. Professional animal trainers don’t keep a pile of treats around for nothing! Use a treat as an enticement to stay put, or as a reward for posing like a pro. Get close, but not too close. Most animals are small when compared to humans. If you shoot them from across the room, you won’t be able to tell that…

Gator’s Byte – Taking a Byte Out of Search Engines

We must say a word of warning before we start our top 10. These ranking are The Gator’s own humble opinions and you may agree or disagree but isn’t that what makes life fun? Also spots 10-8 may not be as well known as some others but once again my show, my rules. A couple of sites you won’t see here especially from most SEO experts and why. Magellan. If you can’t directly submit to it you can’t control your ranking therefore it’s not worth ranking. Open Text isn’t here either. Any engine that goes down for half of 97 ain’t down with the Gator. Perhaps in our next ranking we’ll give it a look. I’ll also welcome any other sites you really like that I have missed in my next ranking. At number 10 we have Jayde Online. The folks at Jayde have worked very hard to build relationships within…

Making a List After Surgery

In addition you will need a walker or crutches to use before you are allowed 100% weight bearing. Usually these are provided at the hospital where the physical therapy department will instruct you on their proper use. I’m often asked what activities I’m allowed to do after back pain. Only sky diving and bunging jumping were completely ruled-out, but I was told to avoid recreational, competitive sports such as basketball and to not “overdo” activities such as cycling. Regardless of what the patient is allowed by their doctor, there is no avoiding that hard use accelerates wear. It is often said that the lifetime of an implant should be measured in “miles” rather than years. So as you would with a new set of tires, you might consider some common sense ways to avoid excessive wear on the implant(s). The following are presented as suggestions without being scientifically proven: Avoid…

CREATE A “LAUNCHING PAD”

How many attempts does it take for you to herd your brood out of the house in the morning? As you steer everyone toward the door, a small voice says, “I forgot my lunch.” You go back, finding the stray lunch bag on the kitchen counter. On your second time out, someone else pipes up, “Where are my library books?” A short search locates them under the sofa. You try a third time, only to hear the words, “I left my homework on the dining room table.” This can go on for days! Some mornings seem like a comedy of errors – the Three Stooges in miniature. But it’s not particularly funny when you find yourself running 45 minutes behind, the kids have missed the bus, and you have to drive them to school. Now they are going to be late for class, your schedule is thrown off for the…
