Looking Younger with Less Work

As I get older, my face starts to show more noticeable signs of my age. I thought about having surgery once, but the thought of looking like some kind of plastic monster really turned me off. I’ve seen too many cases where celebrities get plastic surgery done and their faces make them look totally unrecognizable. There are a few cases where the surgery has worked out in their favor, but most of the time it looks terrible. There is a better option that doesn’t involve surgery. A simple botox spa treatment eliminates the signs of aging without a lot of complication.

I received my first treatment a couple of months ago. Read the rest of this entry »

I Fell Down on Ice

My family has teased me about being accident prone ever since I was a child. The sad part about that is they have always been right. If there is just one speck of ice on a sidewalk, I am the one who will step on it and fall. That is what happened not that long ago. It was more than a speck, but not by much! I stepped on it, and down I went. I knew that I was going to have trouble though when I could not get up on my own. A chiropractor in San Jose was definitely on my bucket list that week, even though I had never been to one before.

The reason I wanted a chiropractor is because I had landed on my back. My tailbone and lower back were extremely sore, and the heat that I was putting on it was just not doing the trick. After two days of constant pain, I finally went to a chiropractor. I did not want to take prescription pills to eliminate the pain, because the problem would still be there. I also had to make sure that I did not do any damage that was going to stick around. Read the rest of this entry »

Had to Get My Back Worked on

I have been laid up for a couple of months now, I made a mistake when I saddled a horse while I was on vacation and it bucked me off for my trouble. It has been pretty tough, but I think that I have the issue under control now. I have been to see a Mesa chiropractor three times so far and he seems to have made the correct adjustments, although I am worried that his work is not going to be permanent. It is not as though you can be sure that you are going to get the right result and have it last indefinitely. You have to be pretty happy if the result that you get is going to be good enough to last a long time and you want to make sure that you pick a chiropractor that is going to be able to do the job, and not give you something terrible along with the bill. Of course the way that this works is more than a bit scary. The chiropractor is going to try to move your bones so that they are all in the right position relative to the rest of your bones.

Alzheimer’s Disease Home Remedies, Causes, Symptoms

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the brain and results in disorientation, with impaired memory, thinking, and judgement. People with Alzheimers also undergo changes in their behavior. This combination of symptoms is also called dementia.

People with Alzheimer’s disease have an atrophy of the cortical tissue within the brain. When examined at autopsy the brain shows abnormal fibers that appear to be tangles of brain tissue filaments (neurofibrillary tangles) and senile plaques (patches of degenerative nerve endings). This damage is believed to cause disruption to transmission of impulses amongst brain cells. It is this damage that is thought to produce the symptoms of the disease.

Acne Treatment that Never Fails

There are different ways of doing the same thing. They say that what is important is that you get to the finish line, and in this case, that is having acne free skin.

There are acne treatment methods out there that the holistic. This means that they try to come up with a solution that will not require medication other than home remedies they have tried for themselves. While they may have certain effects on some, these do not have a valid proof of efficacy, and they are not considered as a serious form of acne treatment. There is also surgery for those who want to remove acne easily. But of course you have to invest lots of money into it. This kind of acne treatment is not recommended for those who do not have any savings at all. Unless you are really desperate to remove acne now, and you have the means to do it, then surgery is not for you. Also take note that surgery may help you now, but there is no guarantee that it can help you prevent another influx of acne without repeating the costly procedure. If you want an effective and continuous form of acne treatment, using an acne cream is best for you. This is recommended for those who are ready to add another product to their daily beauty regime and who do not want to invest in a one-time big-time approach at clearing their skin. This is the best treatment by far.
