The Most Common Cause of Blood in Stool: Hemorrhoids

March 25th, 2016

Despite the fact that you were probably worried about cancer, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, the most common cause of bloody poop is hemorrhoids, commonly known as piles.  The majority of the adult population will suffer at some point although some will have worse discomfort than others.  It is not unknown for women to first have them when they are pregnant and still be suffering when their grandchildren are born.

A pile is formed when something goes wrong with the veins in your anus.  It is similar to what happens when you suffer a varicose vein in your leg.  The vein swells up and as there isn’t a lot of room in your anus, this is one reason why even small piles can cause problems.

Hemorrhoids treatment includes everything from taking salt baths to having surgery.   You can help yourself by drinking more water and eating a high fiber diet.  This will not cure an existing problem but it will help to soften the stool and also relieve constipation.  In turn this will prevent you straining to open your bowels and making the problem worse.

If you find that the itching is driving you crazy, you can apply some ointment or insert some suppositories.  There are some which should only be used at night which is when the itch is likely to be the worst.  Personal hygiene is always important but particularly when you have this problem.  Hemorrhoids treatment involves touching your anus and it goes without saying that your hands need to be properly washed afterwards.

Some treatments are effective at reducing the annoying itch and relieving the pain.  Others will actually cure hemorrhoids.  If you suffer from piles, check out how people just like you got rid of their hemorrhoids here.

Black mold is also known as toxic molds and you can find this to be a major problem in households.

You can feel musty odor that signals that mold is present in your house and it leads to many health risks in the present days. If you find out these molds late, it will lead to hazardous conditions.

Due to increase in population, too many of them will become vulnerable to black mold health risks. The risk factors vary in accordance to the black mold type as well as human responses.

For example, the risks are more severe for toddlers and infants to get infected than adults; based on reports, it can reach to incurable levels like respiratory problems.

There are several other health risks like allergy, skin irritation, and invasive diseases that are actually selective depending on the health issues.

Fungi produce volatile organic compounds during degrading process of substance to obtain nutrition. Moldy condition is primarily due to VOC, which is commonly due to fungal contamination.

Irritation of central nervous system and mucous membranes are caused due to high level exposure of volatile organic compounds that can in turn lead to loss of focus, aching head, and dizziness.

Mold Allergy

Whenever mold gets in contact with any sensitive part or skin on our body, allergic reaction occurs. Coughing, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, and itchy eyes are the symptoms caused by asthma and sinusitis, which are the conditions that occur constantly yet discontinuously. Consistent medical attention is required in the event of distrust.

It’s Almost As Dangerous As Being A Chronic Smoker: Having Little To No Friends

January 15th, 2016

While I can see that people who are socially inadequate might have fewer friends, I don’t think this is true of all people. I think that it’s the quality of all of the relationships that you do have that makes the difference in health. If you have 1 or 2 great friends, a romantic partner, colleagues, and family, and all of those relationships are satisfying, I don’t think it matters healthwise what number of friends you have.

What constitutes as “poor social connections” and “strong social connections”? The title says Having Little to No Friends. But what about people with lots of “friends,” but secretly, they can’t stand them, and are posionous to eachother? Is that a “strong social connection” simply because they have more friends? What about the people with fewer friends, but have strong, caring, and true friendships with them? Is that a “poor social connection” simply because they have fewer friends?

I think “social connections” in this context refers to a meaningful social life (family, great rapport with friends, going out a lot.. it is variable due to different individual needs). While some extroverts may need quantity, a great family may be sufficient for the introvert (no stereotyping intended). It is based on the individual reflection of the person interviewed/surveyed and their social needs in accordance to their culture. In some cultures, people tend to have better familial ties, while others focus more on friendship.

I totally agree with this. I am happier and feel better when my social needs are met… which is quite a basic idea.

Caroline nailed it.

Quite frankly, the people that I know with “lots” of “friends” are the ones who are constantly having some sort of drama. It’s always the classic, “he said, she said” type of situation.

My take on it is, the less people you allow into your personal space, the less mess there is to clean up later.

Pinched nerve in neck, what about it

May 13th, 2015

Have you been experiencing neck pain in the recent past or for a long time now? Then you may have to consider the possibility of a pinched nerve neck. I now think the main question you have right now is, what is this health problem?

First, I think it is important to establish what a nerve is; a nerve is a strand that is responsible for the conduction of impulses in the body and they are thousands of them in the body. Nerves’ main responsibility is to connect the brain, which is like the processor of the body, with the rest of the body. These strands are the ones in action when you touch, feel pain as well as when hunger pang bite. How do you therefore distinguish a pinched neck pain from any other neck pain? The symptoms mainly are pain which originates from the neck but then seems to be extended to the rest of the body. It can be a single part of the body or the entire body depending on the pinched nerve cord.

If it is the nerve from the arms to the neck, then your arms, palms and finger will be affected. Actually, this is the main symptom that should cause ring an alarm of a pinched neck nerve. The other signs to look out for are numbness or a pricking sensation, failure of the sense of touch and weakness in the affected area. It is therefore advised that, should you experience these symptoms, it is only right to seek expert advice, in short, consult a doctor. At the doctor’s place, make sure you answer all the questions the doctor will ask right as they will be the pathway for the doctor to establish if it is a pinched in the neck. To ascertain if it is pinched, they might also vary out an x-ray or other test like the magnetic resonance imaging, MRI.

Cause and treatments

There are several causes for this condition. Here we will only go through some, which are the most common. The first is herniated disks. Nerves are contained in the skeletal bones, in case one of the cervical disks slightly moves out of place, then the result is pressure on the nerve cord. The spinal cord is the main housing for the nerve cords in the neck, sometime; this housing can be narrow hence squeezing the nerves. Sometimes, these bones of the spinal cord can abnormally grow. This will also result to pinched neck nerves. The treatments include rest, medication, physical therapy and for the most complicated cases, surgery. It is the duty of the doctor to prescribe the method appropriate and it is dependent on the severity of the condition. So, to be on the safe side, make sure you visit a doctor as soon as you register any of the symptoms. This is based on the fact that, as the condition remains unaddressed, the more severe it gets.
