Bad Breath?

Bad Breath?
When is bad breath most likely to occur?
Everybody has bad breath from time to time, especially first thing in the morning. You also may have bad breath when you are hungry, when you are dieting, or after eating foods with a strong odor, such as garlic, onions, or pastrami.
What causes bad breath?
Many things can cause bad breath. A major cause is decreased saliva. Saliva has a cleaning action that helps reduce or eliminate bad breath. When saliva decreases, bacteria can grow, causing bad breath.
Bad breath caused by a decrease in saliva may be especially noticeable:
- In the morning. The flow of saliva almost stops during sleep. The reduced cleaning action of the saliva allows bacteria to grow, causing bad breath.
- When you are hungry. Bad breath is more common in people who miss meals or are dieting. Chewing food increases saliva in the mouth. When you are not eating, saliva decreases and bacteria growth increases, causing bad breath.
- When you are dehydrated. When you become dehydrated, you do not produce as much saliva. The reduced cleaning action of the saliva allows bacteria to grow, causing bad breath.
- From diseases that affect the salivary glands, such as Sj?gren's syndrome or scleroderma.
- When you are taking certain medicines.
- After drinking alcoholic beverages.
Other causes of bad or changed breath include:
- Eating foods with a strong odor, such as garlic, onions, or pastrami.
- Smoking or using smokeless (spit) tobacco, such as snuff or chewing tobacco.
- Bacteria and plaque buildup in the mouth from food caught between teeth, dentures, or dental appliances.
Mouth and throat problems that can cause mouth odor include:
- Throat or mouth infections, such as strep throat.
- Dental problems, such as cavities.
- Gum disease (periodontal disease), which may cause a metallic breath odor.
- Tonsils with deep tunnels (crypts) that trap food particles.
- Throat or mouth cancers.
Problems in other areas of the body that can cause mouth odor include:
- Problems with the nose, such as a sinus infection, nasal polyps, or an object in the nose.
- Diabetes. A symptom of very high blood sugar is a strong, fruity breath odor (similar to nail polish remover or acetone).
- Digestive system disorders, such as reflux (gastroesophageal reflux disease), bowel problems, or cancer.
- Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.
- Liver disease.
- Lung problems, such as an infection or cancer.
How is bad breath treated?
To help improve your breath:
- Gargle with water.
- Brush your teeth, tongue, roof of your mouth, and gums at least twice a day with toothpaste.
- Floss your teeth once each day.
- Eat a low-fat diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
- Eat less meat.
- Do not smoke or use other tobacco products, such as snuff or chewing (spit) tobacco.
- Avoid foods and drinks that cause bad breath, such as garlic and alcohol.
- Eat at regular intervals. Dieting or missing meals can decrease saliva and cause bad breath.
- Chew sugar-free gum, suck on sugar-free mints, or drink water, especially if your mouth is dry. Try using breath sticks, which contain the ingredients found in a mouthwash and dissolve in your mouth.
- Remove dentures, removable bridges, partial plates, or orthodontic appliances and clean them once each day or as directed by your dentist. Pieces of food and germs can collect on these appliances and cause bad breath.
- Use a mouthwash for temporary relief of bad breath. Swish it around in your mouth for 30 seconds before spitting it out.
- Have regular dental checkups.
- Make an appointment to see an ear, nose, and throat specialist (otolaryngologist) if you have frequent problems with mouth odor.

Carpal tunnel syndrome? Arthritis?

Carpal tunnel syndrome? Arthritis?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is pain, tingling, and other problems in your hand because of pressure on the median nerve in your wrist.
AyaCise will work on your hand and wrist to loosen up the syndrome. Try AyaCise classes near you for several weeks.
The median nerve and several tendons run from your forearm to your hand through a small space in your wrist called the carpal tunnel. The median nerve controls movement and feeling
What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?
Pressure on the median nerve causes carpal tunnel syndrome. This pressure can come from swelling or anything that makes the carpal tunnel smaller. Things that can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- Illnesses such as hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes.
- Pregnancy.
- Obesity.
- Making the same hand movements over and over, especially if the wrist is bent down (your hands lower than your wrists), or making the same wrist movements over and over.
- Wrist injuries and bone spurs.
- Smoking, because it can reduce blood flow to the median nerve. (information by Kaiser)
What are the symptoms?
Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause tingling, numbness, weakness, or pain in the fingers or hand. Some people may have pain in their arm between their hand and their elbow.
Symptoms most often occur in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger. If you have problems with your other fingers but your little finger is fine, this may be a sign that you have carpal tunnel syndrome. A different nerve gives feeling to the little finger.
You may first notice symptoms at night. You may be able to get relief by taking Ki Flow exercise classes regularly.

Cold


Cold
Two easy ways to prevent from catching cold.
1) Follow AyaCise regularly (Ki Flow has detox movements for cold)
2) Wash hands often
Hand-washing is a simple and effective way to help prevent diseases, such as colds, flu, and food poisoning.
When to wash your hands, Washing hands:
- Often, especially during cold and flu season, can reduce your risk of catching or spreading a cold or the flu.
- Before and after preparing or serving food reduces your risk of catching or spreading bacteria that cause food poisoning. Be especially careful to wash before and after preparing poultry, raw eggs, meat, or seafood.
- After going to the bathroom or changing diapers reduces your risk of catching or spreading infectious diseases.
Wash your hands after:
- Touching bare human body parts other than clean hands and clean, exposed parts of your arms.
- Using the bathroom.
- Coughing, sneezing, or using a handkerchief or disposable tissue.
- Eating, drinking, or using tobacco (for example, smoking).
- Handling soiled kitchen utensils or equipment.
- Handling other soiled or contaminated utensils or equipment.
- Handling or preparing foods, especially after touching raw meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, or eggs.
- Changing diapers, handling garbage, using the phone, shaking hands, or playing with pets.
Proper hand-washing

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend the following steps for handwashing:
1. Wash your hands with hot running water and soap. Children should use warm running water.
2. Rub your hands together for at least 20 seconds.
3. Pay special attention to your wrists, the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your fingernails.
4. Leave the water running while you dry your hands on a paper towel.
5. Use the paper towel as a barrier between the faucet and your clean hands when you turn off the water.
If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizers or alcohol-based hand wipes containing 60% to 90% ethyl alcohol or isopropanol. Most supermarkets and drugstores carry these products. Carry one or both with you when you travel, and keep them in your car or purse.
If using the gel sanitizer, rub your hands until the gel is dry. You don't need to use water. The alcohol in the gel kills the germs on your hands.

Constipation

Constipation
Constipation occurs when stools are difficult to pass. Some people are overly concerned with the frequency of their bowel movements because they have been taught that a healthy person has a bowel movement every day. This is not true. Most people pass stools anywhere from 3 times a day to 3 times a week. If your stools are soft and pass easily, you are not constipated.
Constipation is present if you have 2 or fewer bowel movements each week or you do not take laxatives and have 2 or more of the following problems at least 25% of the time:
- Straining
- Feeling that you do not completely empty your bowels
- Hard stools, or stools that look like pellets
- A feeling of being blocked up
- You cannot pass stools unless you put a finger in your rectum or use manual pressure to pass a stool.
Constipation may occur with cramping and pain in the rectum caused by the strain of trying to pass hard, dry stools. You may have some bloating and nausea. You may also have small amounts of bright red blood on the stool or on the toilet tissue, caused by bleeding hemorrhoids or a slight tearing of the anus as the stool is pushed through the anus. This should stop when the constipation is controlled.
There are three types of constipation: normal movement (transit) of stool through the intestines, slow transit constipation, and outlet delay.
Normal and slow transit constipation
Two of the most common types of constipation are normal and slow transit (functional) constipation. Lack of fiber is a common cause of functional constipation. Other causes include:
- Irritable bowel syndrome.
- Travel or other change in daily routine.
- Lack of exercise.
- Immobility caused by illness or aging.
- Medicine use.
- Overuse of laxatives.
- Pregnancy.
Constipation is sometimes a sign of another health problem, such as diabetes, hypothryoidism, or hypercalcemia.
Constipation is more common in people older than 65. People in this age group are more likely to have poor dietary habits and increased medicine use. Older adults also often have decreased muscular activity of the intestinal tract, which increases the time it takes for stool to move through the intestines. Physical problems, such as arthritis, may make sitting on the toilet uncomfortable or painful.
Constipation is also more common in rural areas, cold climates, and among the poor.
Psychological problems, such as severe anxiety, depression, eating disorders, or obsessive-complusive disorder, also can cause constipation.
Women report problems with constipation more often than men. (information by Kaiser)

Depression?

Depression?

Gas Releasing Pose

Gas Releasing Pose
What is gas?
Gas (flatus) is made in the stomach and intestines as your body breaks down food into energy. All people pass gas, some people more than others. It is normal to pass gas from 6 to 20 times per day.
Intestinal gas is made up of oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and methane. The foul smell usually is caused by small traces of gases such as hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and methane. Gas that forms after eating meat and eggs tends to smell bad, while gas derived from fruits and vegetables usually does not have an odor.
What causes gas?
Common causes of gas include:
- Swallowed air. If swallowed air is not burped up, it passes through the digestive tract and is released through the anus as flatus. Excessive air swallowing may cause hiccups.
- Foods and beverages. The amount of gas that different foods cause varies from person to person.
- Constipation. This can cause bloating but generally does not increase gas.
- Medicines or nutritional supplements. Both prescription and non-prescription medicines, as well as dietary supplements, can cause bloating and gas as side effects.
- A medical condition, such as a bowel obstruction or Crohn's disease.
- Changes in hormone levels. It is common for women to have bloating right before their periods because their bodies retain fluid.
Can I treat or prevent gas?
You may be able to prevent gas by changing your eating and drinking habits. Occasionally gas is a symptom of a medical condition that requires treatment.
Examples of gas-producing foods are:
- Vegetables such as artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers, green peppers, onions, peas, radishes, and raw potatoes.
- Beans and other legumes.
- Fruits such as apricots, bananas, melons, peaches, pears, prunes, and raw apples.
- Wheat and wheat bran.
- Eggs.
- Carbonated drinks, fruit drinks, beer, and red wine.
- Fried and fatty foods.
- Sugar and sugar substitutes.
- Milk and other dairy products, especially in people who have trouble digesting lactose, the main sugar found in milk.
- Packaged foods that contain lactose, such as breads, cereal, and salad dressing.(information by Kaiser)

Healthy Aging?

Healthy Aging?

Getting older is a natural part of life.
How you will feel as you get older depends on many things, including what health problems run in your family and the choices you make. If you take good care of your body and learn positive ways to deal with stress now, you can slow down or even prevent problems that often come with getting older.
