What's the difference between a cold and flu?

When you wake up in the morning sneezing with a sore throat and bunged up nose it can be difficult to tell whether you have a common cold or flu. It's common to think that flu (or influenza, to give it its full name) of just a very bad cold, but they're actually different conditions.
There are many different types of viruses that can cause a cold, whereas for flu there are three types: A, B and C. You can also catch a cold at anytime throughout the year, whereas flu typically only spreads during a two month period starting in late November.
Colds rarely pose a severe threat and you can usually carry on with your daily life without too much inconvenience. Flu, on the other hand, is more severe and can often mean you need bed rest until it passes. Along with the symptoms you'd get from a cold, flu can cause body aches, nausea, loss of appetite and chills.
The clearest way to identify whether you have a cold or flu is to check your temperature. With a cold your temperature wont go above 101ºF whereas with flu it can reach 102ºF or higher, particularly in small children.
Despite being slightly different conditions, both colds and flu are treated in the same way – plenty of rest and fluids. If they haven't reduced within 2 weeks or the symptoms worsen then it's a good idea to visit your doctor.
If you'd like to avoid the risk of catching flu this winter then you can pop down to your local pharmacy for the flu jab. It's quick, relatively painless and will protect you against flu for six months.

The Window to Your Soul---Eyes

By: tracy
As adults, everyone of us understand that the eye is the most important organ in our body; while the eye is also the most vulnerable part, it will be easily hurt if you so not pay more attention on the protection of it. Would you please tell us whether you have child? Have you ever attached any importance on their eyes? Have your children become myopia?

The myopia can be divided into two categories; one is endogenous, which is caused by hereditary, and another category is caused by various social conditions after you were born, such as the society, environment, and your habits in using the eyes. In fact, most myopia is caused by the social conditions, therefore, we need try our best to prevent the myopia happens on our children. There are four key points to protect them:

1 Protection from society
According to the survey data, it shows that the mild myopia most occurs in early childhood; besides, with the increase of the children's cultural degree, the myopia occurrence rate will also become higher and higher. In the modern society, the school, the parents always hope their students or their children gain great success, so many children are forced to participate in those various training classes; even as children, they had to undertake great pressure from all aspects of life. As a result, the myopia occurrence rate among children has increased a lot. For children's eye health, please give them more freedom so that they can enjoy their childhood.

2 Protection from school
Teachers and parents should pay more attention on school's environmental facilities. The classroom should be wide and bright enough, and the lighting distribution in the classroom needs to be scientific and reasonable. These desks and chairs should be designed suitable for the height of the children. Besides, the teachers should give their students more eye-using education, such as, doing eye exercises during the spare time.

3 Protection from home
First, create a good study environment for the children, especially the light bright conditions; it is advisable by using 8-15 tile fluorescent lamp or 25-40-watt bulb, and the distance from the bulb to desk should keep in 50-67centimeters.
Second, as parents, you need teach your children to cultivate correct use eye habit, and you need to remind them sit up straight continually. When they have read book for 1 hour, for the rest of the eyes, please take 10-15 minutes to relax.
Third, receive enough nutrition; children are young, and they need receive nutrition to build body, and the eye health comes from body health. So they need to eat the vegetables and fruits which are rich in vitamins and microelement; besides, they also need to eat the meat, eggs, milk which is rich in sugar, protein, and fat. Because the eye health comes from body health

4 Protection from themselves
The children can also protect their eyes by themselves. In order to enhance their physique and improve the accommodation of eyes, they can take an active part in the exercise. Develop a good eating habit, and willing to eat different foods to avoid the malnutrition; develop a good life habit, sleep at 9, pm and get up at 7 am.

I believe that there is no parent who does not care about their children. Therefore, dear parents please try your best to prevent your children from myopia as earlier as possible, or you will feel regret when they can only see the world clearly with the glasses ( ) on their noses.

The Importance of Proper Sleep for Teens

The teenage years are often wrought with stress, confusion, and plenty of change. In order for the body to keep up with the teenager's increased pace, it must sleep in order to recharge, revive, and grow. Sleep is the body's way of feeding the body and the mind. When sleep is sacrificed, basic motor functions begin to suffer, including concentration and coordination. The longer the body goes without sleep, the more of a toll that will be taken on the teen's mind and body. This is of particular importance during the school year, when concentration and coordination are paramount to high school success. Without sleep, grades can begin to suffer, athletic abilities can begin to suffer, and personal relationships can begin to suffer. Along with concentration and coordination, a lack of sleep can also have a negative impact on a person's emotional stability. Those who force themselves to function throughout their day, fighting back yawns and struggling to keep the eye lids open, often come off as moody, aggressive, or generally rude.

Many teens believe that they don't need as much sleep as their peers because, for some reason, they just don't feel tired earlier in the evening anymore. The reason for this is actually biological. During adolescence a teen's internal sleep patterns actually shift. This means that the body does not start producing the necessary chemicals to put the body to sleep until later in the evening, which is why most teens can't fall asleep before 10:00 or 11:00 pm. This kind of shift in sleep patterns is normal, but it is not an indication that the teenage body is meant to stay up all night. It also does not mean that the teen must remain up until their body tells them they are tired. Just like every other amazing thing that the body can do, it can also be trained, over time, to fall asleep when the person chooses. This is the same theory that makes it possible for folks to work graveyard shifts.

Experts recommend that teens get just over nine hours of sleep per night. Not just on weekends or during summer vacation, but every night. For some teens, about 8 ½ hours will be enough sleep to function at the top of their game, but for the rest, an additional 45 minutes will be required. Irregular sleep patterns can hinder a person's efforts to regulate their sleep cycle, so teens should aim for getting the same amount of rest (just over nine hours), every night, even on weekends. Over time, teens who are able to regulate their sleep schedule will notice less of a desire to sleep in and more of a willingness to get out of bed in the morning ready to start the day fully rested and refreshed.

If a teen is having trouble in school, at work, or with any other responsibilities in their lives, parents are encouraged to inquire about sleep patterns and possible sleep problems.

Parents should do what they can to encourage a regular sleep schedule for their teen. If the teen hasn't mentioned anything about sleeping problems, but they consistently display symptoms of a sleep-deprived person, parents should approach the issue non-confrontationally and in a way that makes the teen feel secure and comfortable. Approaching the problem together, instead of making the teen solve the problem on their own, will help everybody get to the root of the problem. Once the source of the problem is pinpointed, possible treatment options can begin. If sleep regulation doesn't remedy the situation, contact your pediatrician for further guidance, as specific tests may be required to determine what kind of sleep disorder, if any, is causing the teen's problems.

Unhindered blood circulation: A key to good health

By: Shaily
People often experience their legs, feet or hands going numb or a feeling of prickliness and tickling. This is a result of inadequate blood supply to the particular area. This is a common problem and is also known as Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD). In this disease, the circulatory system is unable to supply adequate blood to the limbs. This happens when the arteries in the limbs are thickened or hardened resulting in blood blockage. Blood vessel blockage happens if you have a metabolic disorder or high cholesterol levels. The blockage of blood flow results in lesser nutrient and oxygen supply to the limbs.
What causes this problem?
Almost every individual has experienced this once in their lifetime. The chances of having this condition increases if you have higher cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. People who are obese, diabetic, smokers, alcoholics, people with low physical activities can be prone to circulatory disorders. Genetic factors are also one of the causes for PVD.
The way out
Circulation boosters can treat this problem with complete effectiveness. A variety of them are available on the market but the best one you should go for is Bioenergiser Electro Flex Circulation Booster. It is a very popular product in the United Kingdom which gives you an easy way out of this problem. Bioenergiser Electro Flex circulation booster not only enables smooth and unhindered blood circulation but also provides relief from acute or chronic pain.
The working
The Electro Flex circulation booster is an electronically operated device that works with an AC adaptor. It can also be operated with three C cell batteries. The device produces electrical impulses that are sent through the pressure points on your feet and stimulates the blood flow to relieve pain or swelling. It uses the clinically patented TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Technology. The TENS technology gives relief from problems such as sleeping disorders, joint pain, mobility problems, arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, stress and tiredness.
The value addition
Bioenergiser Electro Flex Circulation Booster comes with 10 preset programs and 2 channels for various muscle types, a far infra red massage function for optimum stimulation and relaxation, and 4 gel pads for use on other parts of your body. These pads can be attached to the desired areas for better results.
The final verdict
For instant relief from problems such as pain in the limbs and tiredness, the Bioenergiser Electro Flex circulation booster works like magic. A 25 minute session everyday would give instant relaxation and a feeling of rejuvenation. There are also some caution points to be taken care of. Pregnant women, patients diagnosed with epilepsy, heart problems, sensory nerve damage or multiple sclerosis and varicose veins should not use the Electro Flex. Also, do not use the muscle stimulation pads on areas that have cut wounds, injuries or swollen areas. It shouldn't be used on areas that are infected or inflamed, over the rear and front of the neck or mouth or on the chest area. In a nutshell, the Electro Flex is a magic wand for circulation problems.
