Breast cancer patients can benefit from yoga
Posted by : Michelle CampbellWednesday, March 5th, 2014
A study has revealed that patients suffering from breast cancer can benefit from practicing yoga several times a week.
One of the side effects of radiation therapy is fatigue, and new research has suggested that this particular side effect can be managed more easily if stress hormones are brought under control. Yoga is one way to help accomplish this.
The results of the study were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. 191 women experiencing various stages of breast cancer took part in the study. They were divided into three groups. One group practiced yoga, a second did simple stretching and the third did nothing. The two groups with an activity to carry out had to attend three one-hour classes each week. The classes were designed for those with breast cancer. Read More

A study has shown that students are now eating healthier school lunches since the new guidelines for healthy eating were introduced in 2012.
The US Department of Agriculture issued the guidelines amid concerns that school meals were less than healthy. New standards for vending machines and snack bars in schools were also introduced. The Harvard School of Public Health carried out a study that shows the consumption of fruits and vegetables has now increased in schools, particularly for students who come from low-income backgrounds.
The results of the study were published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. It is the first study to look at the impact of the new guidelines on students diets. The research shows that around 32 million students have school meals, and for those from a low-income background, this meal could total up to 50 percent of their energy intake. The new guidelines suggested more whole grain foods, fat-free or low-fat milk, different fruits and vegetables every day and a reduction in saturated fats. Read More
Allergy covers not worth the money
Posted by : Michelle CampbellTuesday, March 4th, 2014
The allergy covers that many people spend a great deal of money on have been proved by research to be useless.
The covers are designed to fit onto mattresses and are supposed to offer protection from allergies caused by dust mites. Many doctors recommend that asthma sufferers buy one of these allergy covers. However, an analysis of a number of studies from all over the world concluded that they offer no health benefits at all.
The analysis was carried out by scientists at Tulane University in New Orleans, and the results were published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. The covers are thought to reduce a person’s exposure to the house mites, but the reduction is only around one fifth and there are no discernible health benefits. Read More

If you have impaired mobility and find it difficult or impossible to walk, getting enough exercise can be a challenge. Weight lifting can work for most people even if you can lift very little, it is the effort that does the body good but this does little to help with aerobic fitness, which requires the speeding up of the heart and breathing rate. Aerobic fitness is vital to good long-term health, reducing the risk of developing several major diseases. This article looks at things that wheelchair users can do to preserve their health.
Wheelchair users who still have good upper body strength can engage in a variety of sports, from straight out racing to wheelchair basketball and wheelchair soccer. Those who can only move their own chairs at a gentle pace can still benefit from the equivalent of going for a gentle stroll, and may want to try sports like wheelchair bowling, in which the element of competition itself can get the heart racing. Wheelchair sports not only help with fitness, but can provide a big psychological boost for those who still want to be able to prove themselves physically.
For those in good enough health to use pools, water exercise can be enormously beneficial. Because the water helps to support the body, it is much easier for many people to be active. Simply swimming is a good natural form of exercise, but better still are aqua fitness programs specifically designed for the particular needs of individuals, to make the best use of their healthiest muscles in energetic movement, as well as building up weaker muscles and maintaining tone.

The secrets of getting a good night’s sleep
Posted by : Hailey WilsonMonday, March 3rd, 2014
In the busy world of today, many people struggle to get enough sleep. It is easy to end up compromising on sleep in order to prioritize other things even things like a morning run that is ostensibly part of living a healthy lifestyle. Sleep itself is, in fact, one of the most vital components of healthy living. If you frequently suffer from stress, tiredness, and irritability or have difficulty focusing on day-to-day tasks, you might not be getting enough sleep. The following simple tips can help.
Getting up and going to bed at the same time every day can do a lot to help sleep come more easily. The ideal times will differ from person to person, as people have different natural body rhythms. If work and other such commitments are not an issue, it is best to find your own rhythm, even if that means getting up at noon or at four in the morning.
Doing some aerobic exercise every day, even if it is not much, can significantly improve the quality of sleep that you enjoy. Eating in regular patterns can help your body to get into a comfortable rhythm, helping you to feel tired at consistent times. It helps to avoid eating heavy meals late in the evening, and cutting down on alcohol consumption usually improves sleep quality. Staying well-hydrated can also make a positive contribution, although you should not drink much immediately before going to bed. Read More
