"Please teacher, may i go out?" (INCONTINENCE)



Do you find that you experience the urgency to urinate very frequently, even when the urine that you release is just a trickle or sometimes none at all?
These urinary symptoms include frequency, urgency, and burning. This is Incontinence.
For women, incontinence is a common side effect of childbirth. In men, most often it is a side effect of treatment for prostate problems.
Visit the doctor to be examined. If you have determined that it is not a case of UTI (urinary tract infection), then it is time not to take bladder control for granted. 
These are steps you can take to lower the chances of incontinence:

  1. Watch your weight kilos.  Just losing that excess weight can do wonders for women especially. Extra abdominal fat weakens the pelvic floor muscles and lead to stress incontinence (leaking when coughing, laughing, sneezing, etc.).                                           
  2. Smoking is a No-No. Smoking doubles the likelihood that a woman will develop stress incontinence. Nicotine is also linked to urge incontinence.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
  3. Be active. This is proven in the Nurses' Health Study where middle-aged women who were most physically active were least likely to develop incontinence.
  4. Minimize bladder irritants. Caffeine, alcohol, carbonated drinks, artificial sweetener aspartame, spicy foods, citrus fruits and juices causes incontinence urges.
  5. Don't strain with bowel movements. As this can weaken the pelvic floor muscles. If your stools are frequently hard or take considerable effort to pass, ensure that your hydration is adequate with 8 to 12 glasses of water daily. Eat high fibre foods like whole grains and fruits and vegetables which helps with bowel movements against constipation. 
Yours always in good health and happiness,

What to do when you have a "Simpul Biawak"  or Leg Muscle Cramps

The Truth about Norwegian Salmon

I was asked the other day - how safe is Norwegian salmon for consumption?  Farmed salmon  against wild salmon? The Truth About Norwegian Farm-Raised Salmon
Here's the facts about farm-raised salmon. Do you know that Norway is the second-largest exporter of seafood? Thus it is not only extremely important  for Norway to  safeguard its environment and fish stocks for its economy - the future and sustainability - it is their priority.  The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set the standard for high-quality and safe farmed salmon.
Looking at the quality of the fish stock of Norwegian Salmon: First year of their life, norwegian salmon spends in the safety of a hatchery tank on land until they are large and strong enough for life at sea.  Maximum freedom to grow and no overcrowding -Checked! The salmon are thereafter carefully transferred to spacious, protected ocean pens that allow maximum freedom for growth. The Norwegian law requires that salmon make up less than 2.5% of an aquacultur…
