Violence and Intentional Injury – Health

Violence is constantly in our consciousness as we go about our daily activities. Acts of violence include assault, homicide (murder), sexual assault, domestic violence, suicide, and various forms of abuse. Each year in the United States, intentional injuries account for 50,000 deaths and more than 2 million nonfatal injuries. All these events have the potential to touch the lives of the college student regardless of the school, gender, or ethnicity. This section deals with one aspect of violence-personal and sexual assault.

Safety at the Automated Teller Machine

An increasing number of people are using automated teller machines (ATMs) to carry out various banking transactions. These machines serve as a convenient way to make deposits or withdrawals in a variety of locations and when banks are closed, during holidays, evenings, and weekends. Unfortunately, over the last few years many violent crimes have been committed at ATM sites. If a transaction is necessary, the following rules should be kept in mind at all times:

Use the ATM during daylight hours whenever possible. If you must use an ATM at night, take someone with you and use only a machine in a well-lighted area.

Before using the machine, check to make sure no one is acting suspiciously or hanging around the area. Trust your instincts if you feel uneasy. Seek a machine in another area if you sense something is not right.

Make sure no one attempts to crowd you while using the ATM, and take all receipts with you. Do not discard your receipt in a nearby trash can.

Do not write down your personal identification number (PIN) or carry it in your billfold or purse.

If you drive to the ATM, park in a highly visible location and under a light at night. Always lock your car and hold your keys.

Do not assume that a drive-up ATM is free of assault potential. Always be alert to the surroundings.

Date or Acquaintance Rape

The terms acquaintance and date rape have been brought to the national consciousness over the last decade. Acquaintance rape is forced sexual intercourse between persons who know one another well. Date rape is a form of acquaintance rape that involves forced sexual intercourse between people who are in a dating situation. Statistics indicate that 50% of rapes are committed by someone the victim knows or is dating. 2 ,3 Researchers have found that 24% of college women reported that they were victims of attempted rape, and 17% had been forced to have sex against their will.

In the college setting, poor communication is associated with behavior that results in attempts at seduction. One survey of 600 college men and women found there was substantial agreement among both genders that aggression and coercion usually occurred when one partner felt “led on” and the other did not make it clear “how far” she or he was willing to go. Obviously, one solution is for couples to learn that “no” really means “no” regardless of the tone or hesitancy with which it is stated.

Researchers also point to a special problem on some college campuses in which there are strong fraternity or sorority organizations. This certainly isn’t an attempt to ostracize any campus groups because athletes and other campus groups have allowed inappropriate actions on the part of their group members. The concept, however, is the “house party.” With its drinking, intimacy, sexual teasing, and competitiveness, the house party may provide a social setting that encourages aggressive sexual behavior. Today many sorority and fraternity organizations have classes that educate members in an effort to improve mutual understanding and avoid date coercion or rape.

When a traumatic experience occurs, such as acquaintance or date rape, the victim usually experiences a great amount of enduring and substantial psychological damage. Date rape victims are particularly vulnerable because they are the victims of misplaced trust. Once the trust in a relationship is broken because of forced sex, developing new relationships becomes much more difficult for the victim.

Regardless of how psychologically strong a rape victim is, most are likely to experience shock, anxiety, depression, shame, and a host of other psychosomatic symptoms. The psychological reactions following a rape are referred to as rape trauma syndrome. The syndrome is characterized by fear, night mares, fatigue, crying spells, and digestive upset. Sexual function and desire may be impaired. The victim of violent sex may want her partner to be warm, tender, affectionate, and understanding, but she may not desire sexual intercourse for a long time after the rape. Sometimes lengthy counseling is necessary to help the rape victim reestablish a trusting attitude toward her relationships and sexuality.

Another common problem facing rape victims is self-blame (the victim blames herself for what occurred). The victim tends to go over every single aspect of the attack to understand what she could have done differently to have prevented the rape. Although most victims are blameless, self-accusation also is quite common. Self-blame is particularly prevalent in the case of acquaintance or date rape because the victim believes the event occurred because she created the situation that allowed the sexual coercion. The frustration is enhanced because the victim tends to view her friends as being successful in the dating situation and believes she has failed. The rape victim tends to perceive herself as having permitted a social occasion to turn into a painful event. Here again the victim will need the understanding of friends, family, significant others, and possibly professional counselors to understand and work through these feelings.

The best protection against date or acquaintance rape is preparation and remaining aware that the potential always exists for unwanted sexual advances and potentially traumatic sexual experiences. Planning what to do if faced with unwanted advances and acting assertively can prevent or terminate many potentially devastating situations before leading to the rape situation.

Healthcare Tips – Why Your Health is Important

The answer is obvious. It is a fact of life that medical problems will be faced by us from the day we were born until the day we die. We cannot run away from medical problems but we can learn why these medical problems arise. Questions like “why did it happen?” or “what caused it?” are common amongst patients. Once these questions are answered, the next question invariably becomes “what should I do about it?”.

The more you know about your health, the more involved you can be in taking care of your health and the better overall result it would be to your life and lifestyle. Generally, there are three areas which you can look at where healthcare is concerned and these are “Keeping Fit”, “Health and Nutrition” and “Mental Wellness”.

Keeping Fit
Do you keep yourself fit? What is keeping fit? “Fitness” is much thought of as something related to some form of physical activity – mostly the rigorous kind. The standard of “fitness” varies between individual to individual. Some see walking 400 metres around the park as an achievement in itself whilst some would only be satisfied after running 10 kilometres daily. Some consider themselves fit when they are free of disease or other major health problems.

Being fit relates to every aspect of your health, whether it is physical, emotional or mental. They are all interconnected. You cannot have one without the other to be truly fit. Consider the following aspects of being fit:-
1. When you are fit, you have the stamina and positive outlook to handle all forms of mental and emotional challenges daily.
2. When you are fit, you have a reduced risk of major health problems.
3. When you are fit, you feel and look your very best and you are mentally confident about it.
4. When you are fit, you are at the peak of your physical strength and endurance at the material time.

Health and Nutrition
What is nutrition? It basically means how the food you are taking nourishes your body. Being well nourished depends on you ensuring that your body gets enough nutrients. It is not just plain eating but healthy eating that one should strive for. In this connection, good nutrition cannot be overemphasised. Healthful feeding aids fitness. Studies have shown that children who were well nourished tend to do better in growth and mental development.

The “danger in eating” which many people fail to realise is that when one eats, one is being satisfied by the senses – the taste, aroma, texture and sight of beautifully cooked and presented food. The focus on the said senses as against the focus on the nutritional value of the food to the body sometimes leave a person having an unbalanced nutrition. A person may be fond of eating steak but having that for most meals would be a recipe for health problems to occur. What is required is a balanced eating habit and ensuring that the food that you eat contains the main groups of nutrients – carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water. Ensure that you are eating right and that your diet is varied.

Mental Wellness
Research has shown that a healthy mind affects the overall health of a person and more so, during treatment of disease and recovery therefrom. We all need a healthy mind to have a quality life so that we can face up to the challenges of life, keep a positive outlook on things happening around us, seek intellectual stimulation and make creative use of time through work and volunteer services.

Practise good self-care for both your body and mind. Get plenty of rest, eat right and exercise regularly. Have regular medical check-ups and talk to your medical doctor about any anxieties or stress which you might be facing. Do not be afraid to reach out for help. Keep your mind busy with positive learning and interacting with others through appropriate socialising.

Keep and maintain a healthy lifestyle for your health very much affects how well you are living.

Health and Lifestyle

Staying alive is called living a life and the quality of life you live is your health. Life and health are closely related words if you want them to portray a positive outlook. This is because, if you want your life to be good then you should stay healthy. This is not something you can get by just imagining it. Health comes with great sacrifices and struggle, like everything else in life. There are forces all around you that make you unhealthy. You should learn to say yes to things that promote health and no to the things that do the opposite.

There are many things you can do to make your life healthy. Your diet plays a major role in your health. Eating a balanced diet is very important as it contains all the necessary nutrients and vitamins. Eating breakfast is something that should not be missed as it is the energy that keeps you active everyday. It also reduces the risk of over-eating. Including sea food in your diet is also beneficial. This type of food does not contain saturated fats and they store huge amount of proteins. Fish oil is also very good for the health. Sleeping for the minimum hours as specified by professionals is also very important. Staying socially active and taking part in social events also keeps our mind motivated and psychologically healthy.

Exercising is the king of all these tips. It does wonders to the body. It helps in keeping us fit and our muscles in shape. Exercising increases the blood flow to different parts of the body which helps in making us more active. Exercising also cuts short the risk of developing life-threatening diseases such as diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure etc. Keeping your teeth clean and flossed increases your life span. Healthy teeth help in chewing the food more efficiently. Protecting your skin is also beneficial. As long as your skin remains healthy and protected you will look younger and confident. It is common to wear sunscreen to protect skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. All these tips can help in creating the healthiest lifestyle.

3 Easy Tips to Change Lifestyle Habits For Better Health

Since problems with a person being overweight include diabetes and heart disease, it is vital that we make changes in our lifestyles to reverse this trend. Traditionally, when a person makes the decision to lose weight, it is typically starting a diet. If exercise is included, a membership to a gym is often purchased.

These are all good plans. However, they fail so often because it is too much drastic change at one time. Anybody can tough it out for awhile. But changing too many old habits all at once is overwhelming. Also, to get through a diet, a person may have thoughts of how good the forbidden foods will taste once the weight is lost.

If you’ve tried and failed and are afraid starting another diet will lead to more failure, here are some easy lifestyle changes you can make to help you get ready to live healthier and lose weight.

Television

As our obsession with television, computers, and video games have increased, our time spent in physical activity has decreased. Fortunately, fitness shows by health gurus like Jack LaLanne have been steadily increasing over the years. Wii fitness programs are the newest addition to exercise videos while seeming like a game. Although exercising along with these programs is a great step to better health, more is needed.

We must restrict television time to 1 to 2 hours a day. It is far too easy to hear something that catches interest on the TV and sit down to watch…just for a little bit. An hour later you’re still sitting and got nothing done. How many times have you been watching a favorite program and been influenced to eat because you saw a food commercial? Turn off the tube and use the time to organize the closet, go for a walk, garden, or do anything that gets you moving.

Processed Convenience Foods

Processed foods are loaded with fat, salt, and sugars. Additionally, the processing often destroys a large amount of nutrients and enzymes. Without vital enzymes we cannot digest our food and make use of the nutrients we need. When our bodies are not getting the nutrients we need, we start craving more food and overeat. Pay attention to how much processed food you are buying because it is convenient to throw into the microwave.

Modern microwaves are better at cooking a wide variety of foods. Some even have browning elements. Microwave cookware has also evolved solving the old problem of having parts of the food hard and parts uncooked. It is possible to cook fresh foods from all food groups in the microwave.

Family Structure

Our family lives are rushed and stressed. Eating habits and mealtimes have deteriorated and the consumption of processed convenience foods have increased. In the last decade or two, we have learned just how important traditional family routines are. Commit to making time in your schedule so you can gather as a family during mealtimes. Eating together gives families an opportunity to talk about their days and model to children how to eat more slowly and chew their food.

Choose two or three days a month to prepare snacks and meals ahead of time. Make fruit and veggie choices convenient to access and ready to eat in Ziploc baggies (to go on the run) or plastic containers. Cereals like Frosted Mini-Wheats, crackers, pretzels, nuts and raisins can be packaged in baggies (together or separately) for easy to go snacks. Try mixing meatloaf recipes, making hamburger patties, casseroles, and trays of enchiladas and freezing them raw. A main meal can easily be popped into the oven or microwave on busy days.

Lifestyle changes are difficult to make. People like to keep doing things that are familiar to them. It’s safe. If you make changes gradually, just one at a time, and practice the new habit consistently, you will find you are living a different lifestyle in a year’s time.

Cat Health – 5 Tips to Help Keep Your Cat Healthy From Kittenhood Through Old Age

Cats are meant to be wonderful and treasured members of the family. Many cats are enjoying long lifespans, into the teens, twenties, and even up to thirty years. Receiving good care, proper food and clean water, and regular veterinary checkups along with living indoors can add many years to the life of your cat. Here are five tips that can help your kitty to live a long, happy, and healthy life.

1. Take your new kitten or newly-acquired cat to your veterinarian right away for a check-up. He or she will check your kitty for any possible problems and will set up a schedule for important vaccinations against diseases. Rabies vaccinations are required and others can protect against upper respiratory infections, gastrointestinal infections, and feline leukemia. You will want to check your new pet for any autoimmune problems as well as health in general, especially if you have other cats in order to avoid exposure for them. Also find out how to protect your kitty from fleas and ticks. Warning: do not use dog products on cats; the results can be deadly!

Once your vaccination schedule is set up, you will want to keep careful records to remind yourself when vaccines are due, when the next fecal sample should be checked for internal parasites, and anything else that might be needed. Regular grooming can make kitty happy and will give you the chance to watch for any problems that may develop.

2. Feed the best quality food you are able. Your vet can help guide you in making the right choices. Make sure your kitties always have access to fresh drinking water. Choose a litter box and litter that your cat likes. Hooded boxes give privacy, which may be important to your cat. If you have a dog, please avoid any litter that clumps and try to place the box where dogs cannot reach it. If your dog consumes clumping litter, you will be facing major surgery and big vet bills!

Cats often do not drink enough water. Feeding them canned foods can increase their liquid intake. You may have noticed that your cat likes to drink from the water faucet when it is turned on. Cats do like to have fresh water, and now you can even get water fountains that continuously provide streams of running water for your kitty if you wish.

3. Indoor-only cats generally live the longest lives. They are not exposed to diseases, dangerous animals, vehicles that may hit them, and other outdoor hazards. Be sure that any house plants you have are not toxic to your pets. Some “people foods” are also toxic to cats and dogs (lists can be found by searching the Internet). Also guard against access to any poisonous chemicals and be sure that any paper shredders are turned off-or better yet, unplugged-when you are not actually shredding something. Pets have had serious accidents, sometimes even resulting in death, from licking or pawing paper shredders.

4. Provide safe toys and activities for your kitties. Cardboard boxes, climbing poles, and a safe place to hide when they want to get away from it all will be welcomed by your feline family member.

Because a cat’s tongue catches string and similar materials, they often cannot spit these out and end up swallowing them. This can cause intestinal blockages, resulting in surgery. Only use toys with string, such as feathers on a stick, when you are actually playing with the cat and can prevent any problems. Also avoid toys with glued-on eyes or other small pieces that can be chewed or broken off and swallowed. Not-too-small balls that they can bat and chase and even plastic drink bottles with the lid tightly screwed on can provide lots of entertainment for your kitty. Remember that pet toys are not checked by the government for toxic materials, so be careful of those made outside of the United States.

5. Watch for any changes in behavior. Drinking more water and urinating more frequently can, for example, indicate kidney disease. If your cat stops eating and becomes lethargic, a quick trip to the vet is needed. Other behavior changes can also signal medical problems which should be checked out by your veterinarian.

As cats age, they can develop many of the same problems that people do. Animals are very good at hiding illness and disease, so problems may become serious before your cat shows any real signs that they are ill. Arthritis, obesity, hyperthyroidism, and cancer can affect your kitties, especially as they get older. Any weight gain or loss should be immediately checked by your vet because these can be signs of serious problems. Bathroom accidents can be a sign of bladder or kidney problems, diabetes, parasites, or other problems. If you have a geriatric cat (14 or 15 years old), watch for changes of any kind, no matter how small, and have your vet check him or her out. If needed, provide ramps or steps to give your older kitty easier access to litterboxes and favorite napping spots. Look for other ways to help keep your aging kitty comfortable as well.

Cats of any age can make great companions. They can give love, provide plenty of amusement with their antics, and create a calming effect for the person petting them. Petting a dog or cat, for example, tends to cause the blood pressure to go down. Pets that visit nursing homes have been able to get responses from some otherwise unresponsive patients. Seniors who want a kitty may find that adopting a senior cat can be the perfect solution. Older cats tend to be more laid back and be content to be doted upon. Whatever age your cat may be, continued good care and careful observation can help you and your feline companion to enjoy many happy years together.

Make Sense Living Healthfully – 5 Tips For Saving Your Wallet and Waistline

I always giggle at the category of “health food section” because it just naturally makes me wonder “As opposed to the diseased food section?” “Health food” and its role in losing weight is probably as misunderstood as Michael Jackson. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be expensive, bland or sacrificial. These valuable tips will keep your wallet fat and your body fit:

1. Understand how your food choices set you up for your next meal. When you eat an apple versus a Tastykake or a bland Lean Cuisine (i.e. whole food vs. processed foods), your appetite decreases since you are receiving more nutrition. Eating less = saving money while losing weight. Nutrients fill you because your body has what it needs to perform. After all, the original purpose of food was (and still is) to nourish your body. Processed foods lack significant nutritional value leaving you over-fed and malnourished – and feeling insanely hungry.

2. Visit the bulk food section. Foods like nuts, whole grains, and beans are many times cheaper because there are no advertising, packaging or marketing costs. Processed foods like Lean Cuisine, Weight Watchers, “fat-free” and “sugar-free” claims cost millions to market (and they are bogus). Companies like to keep you confused which not only results in failed weight loss, but keeps you obsessing over food. The more packaging and advertising, the less likely it’s nourishing food that will help you with your wallet or weight. Find the quieter foods that don’t need to convince you of anything.

3. Think of cooking as assembling. Eating healthy involves cooking, which saves you a bundle. Many of my clients cringe at the idea of cooking because they imagine elaborate three course meals with non-stop dishes. But once I introduce them to recipes that feel more like assembling (think of creative salads, scrambled eggs with salsa, etc., they see how easy and fun it is). You can easily have an extra $50 in your wallet at the end of every workweek just from cooking at home. Plus, it helps you connect to your food. And bonus: cooking makes you appreciate your food which leads to natural portion control.

4. Real food decreases your toxic load. The chemicals in processed foods make it much harder to lose weight. Your body fat stores the toxins your body cannot process. More toxins = more stubborn fat. The mainstream media is finally covering how toxins cause us to gain weight. Check out this recent article on yahoo.com about plastic contributing to weight gain: http://shine.yahoo.com/event/loveyourbody/why-you-cant-lose-those-last-10-pounds-1964849/ (by the time something’s made it to Yahoo! news, you know it’s practically written in stone by those of us who aren’t paid by big corporate companies for at least five years!).

5. Visit the grocery store Whole Foods’ website: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com Learn how to shop their aisles on a budget, and to implement their monthly specials and recipes into your meal plans.

I understand we all have different values. Some people balk at paying for good food but will think nothing of buying the latest trend in clothing, or over-priced products that promise to make you beyond beautiful.

But remember this: when you eat well, you are comfortable in your body, your skin glows against shiny hair, there’s a huge smile on your face, and you have a je ne sais quoi about you. So the woman in the elevator who has a Chanel bag swinging from her arm, over-priced tank-top, bumble-bee Gucci sunglasses, and is comparing herself to you, is still going to think you’ve won because you look way better and, most importantly, you feel healthy.

And beyond the superficial, eating well is an investment in yourself. Yes, free-range meat costs more than conventional, and organic foods can sometimes be pricier. But while you may have to spend a bit more upfront, the people who get ahead in life do this all the time. It’s why people invest in real estate or further their education – it pays big bucks!

But with food, it pays in the short run too. You need to think of food as energy and the higher quality you ingest/invest, the more you and your life will be worth.

Healthy Living Tips For Good Heart Health

Heart disease is one of the leading killers of Americans today. The fact that most of us live very hectic lifestyles with many demands on our time and attention sometimes results in us losing site of the things that we can do in our lives to help assure that we are taking the best care of our hearts as we can. We are going to examine some healthy living tips that may appear to be common sense but can easily be overlooked.

EAT A HEALTHY AND NUTRITIOUS DIET

Eat 4 to 5 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. These foods are not only low in calories but they also contain vitamins, minerals and fiber that are essential to a healthy heart. If you feel that your diet leaves you lacking in some essential nutrients consider supplementation as an alternative.

In order to control high blood pressure and cholesterol eat whole grains. These are low in fat and high in fiber and vitamins that will help you do this. The risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity has been shown to be reduced by eating as little as three servings per day. Start your morning off by eating oatmeal (not instant) with whole grain toast. In the afternoon instead of snacking on a bag of chips substitute granola or even air popped popcorn.

Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water each day. This will do two important things to help your heart health. First it helps you keep your weight down. The body will sometimes confuse dehydration with hunger and you will tend to eat more than you should. It is also good for your skin. The second way it helps is that doing this will help prevent your blood from thickening. As your blood gets thicker it puts a strain on your heart because it has to work harder to pump blood to areas of the body where it is needed. By drinking an adequate supply of water your heart has to work less.

EXERCISE REGULARLY

Exercise is a very important component of heart health. Aerobic exercise such as walking, bike riding, dancing or running is the best. Remember that when you are considering an exercise program take a moment and think about what you truly enjoy doing. If you enjoy something it is much easier to stick with it over the long run. Regular exercise will help control blood pressure and cholesterol numbers and make your heart and lungs stronger. Along with reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke exercise will also increase stamina and mood.

GET ENOUGH REST

Many sacrifice sleep in order to make more time in their busy day. By doing this it limits the body’s ability to control blood sugar. People who have diabetes are well aware of this. What this can do is lead to inflammation in the veins and arteries. This can cause scars to form in the arteries and increase the possibility of plaque buildup. This buildup can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Your goal should be to get eight hours of sleep each night in order to protect your heart as well as keep blood sugar levels under control.

QUIT SMOKING

If you are a smoker it is important that you speak to your doctor and find a way to quit. Nicotine increases the amount of blood that is needed by the heart thus reducing the amount that can flow through the veins to other parts of the body where it is needed. Carbon monoxide will also knock oxygen molecules off red blood cells thus limiting the amount of oxygen which the heart receives. It is important to realize that nothing about smoking is good for heart health.

Remedy for Gallstones – Keep Your Gallbladder and Avoid Colon Cancer with 7 Tips

Did you know that approximately 500,000 persons will undergo surgery to remove their gallbladder this year? And this is considerably low, considering that between 10-15 percent of Americans have been diagnosed with gallstones sometime in their lifetime.

But unfortunately, removing your body’s organ (the gallbladder) is not a cure-all solution to this disease. Because without your gallbladder, bile will drip continuously into your digestive system. The constant dripping will cause nausea and diarrhea in some people. And far worse, removal of the organ drastically increases your risk of colon cancer, bowel cancer and may lead to higher levels of blood cholesterol because of the dripping bile. And as you know, cholesterol is a leading cause of heart attacks.

Are you considering gallbladder surgery for your gallstone treatment? Would you consider a remedy for gallstones which uses healthy living tips to dissolve and flush your stones naturally if it was guaranteed? Keep reading!

Why You Need Your Gallbladder?

In a recent study, researchers from the UK found that gallbladder surgery may increase your risk of developing colon cancer because of bile excretion problems. Though the risk is low, researchers have discovered a noticeable amount of cancer cases resulting from the surgery.

Should you be concerned? I would contend ‘yes’. Specifically, because your gallbladder was designed with a purpose and losing your gallbladder could be disastrous to your body. And in some cases, fatal!

The gallbladder’s job results from blood. Blood flows to every part of the body to bring nutrients and waste to and from every single cell in the body. The liver’s (the gallbladder’s neighbor) job is to filter the blood and eliminate the waste/impurities/toxins in the blood. This waste produced by the liver is called bile. The gallbladder then uses the bile to break down fats and cholesterol that you digest.

With the missing organ, the dripping bile can cause serious problems including: leaving cholesterol to build up in your arteries, colon cancer, bowel cancer and body malfunctions including consistent nausea and diarrhea. Is this worth paying thousands of dollars for all of these possible complications? Of course, not!
