Many new moms fear that eating the wrong foods while breast-feeding will make their baby fussy. However, no sound scientific evidence exists to support claims that certain foods or beverages lead to fussiness in infants, according to Gina Neill, a Loyola University Health System registered dietitian.
“One of the many reasons women stop breast-feeding is because they believe they have to follow restrictive dietary guidelines,” Neill said. “However, a nursing mom’s food and beverage intake does not have to be as regimented as you might think.”
Dr. Elizabeth Mueller, medical director of Urogynecology at Loyola, explains how Botox, which is often used to prevent wrinkles, actually is a very effective treatment for muscle spasms.
With this in mind, doctors established a clinical trial to study the effect of Botox injections in urinary incontinence treatment. They will compare this treatment against the present standard of care, which involves oral medication.
They’ve become a part of our everyday wardrobe, but has this trend in highest of high heels been to the detriment of our feet?
They aren’t just for runways anymore. Stilettos used to be reserved for special occasions and maybe girls night out. Now, it seems women are doing everything from running after toddlers to taking casual strolls in them.
Recent studies have shown that up to a third of women suffer permanent foot problems as a result of prolonged high-heel wear.
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the No. 1 killer of American women, across all ethnicities. This heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. And CAD that doesn’t result in death but is untreated can interfere with the ability to do everyday tasks. So the message is this: Start taking action against heart disease now. Later may be too late.
With coronary artery disease, the blood vessels that bring essential oxygen and nutrients to heart muscle cells are narrowed by deposits called plaque. Plaque can narrow the artery enough that blood flow is reduced to the heart muscle, resulting in angina (chest pain) or a heart attack. Also, plaque can rupture and form a blood clot.
