How Does Infertility Affect You?

You never think that you will be the one to be an infertility statistic. This only happens to other people, not to you. But what happens when it does happen to you? How do you handle it?

Infertility can be a tough pill to swallow, metaphorically. Finding out that it is you that is unable to have children can have a deeply emotional effect on you. Although, it affects different people in different ways, you don’t have to be ashamed about it. There are many people going through the same thing you are going through. Think about it… if it was not that common how can there be fertility clinics that specialise in infertility. If there is a clinic and a doctor that is dedicated to infertility full time then there must be many people that have this issue. Therefore, you are not alone.

That being said, it doesn’t make the reality go away. It’s still a difficult situation to be in. You might feel sad, depressed or anxious. You could pity your situation and not want to talk to anyone about it because it feels like a low point for you. It is not a low point. There are alternative options to consider so you should talk to someone about your situation in order to find a solution.

You could feel indifferent and distant. Many people try to distance themselves from the reality and don’t want to think about the bad news. They go on living their lives and suppress all these emotions. It is healthier to deal with your emotions otherwise it can grow into deep rooted problems in the future. Find a confidant that you can speak to. Speak to someone who won’t judge you and will be able to guide you and your emotions.

Infertility affects many people in different ways. However, there are medical advancements that can help you. There are various fertility treatments available. Visit a fertility clinic to find out what is the cause of the infertility. Once all the tests have been run and the fertility doctor knows what the cause is, a course of treatment can be recommended. You will be given a plan and a schedule. The fertility doctor may recommend possible lifestyle changes in favour of your fertility. You may need to cut out certain bad habits or include specific foods in order to improve your chances. If you want to have a baby then you will need to make the necessary changes in order to improve your fertility.

Remember that finding out about infertility does not have to be the end. There are other options available if you want to have a child.

Basic Health Tips for Women

The other day as I was talking to a friend about some women health related issues and I had a bit of a minor epiphany. You see my friend asked me what things she could do that were simple to implement and didn’t require a major lifestyle change to try and stay healthy. I told her that it seemed like a strange question coming from her, since I’ve always known her to be a fit individual. But, she wanted my opinion. She later confessed that she was picking my brain to get ideas for a book that she wanted to write about fitness for women. Anyhow, this got me to thinking that she was right. There are probably many people who just overlook the simple things, not because they don’t know, but because we get so busy that we forget. And, sometimes we need to be reminded. So, I decided to write a brief article myself.

So here are my basic health tips for women to remain fit and healthy in this busy age:

1. Trying to remain fit and healthy begins with a balanced diet. You should, of course, be aware of and monitor the correct weight for your age. Consult with your doctor to learn what foods you ought to avoid and follow your eating discipline routines. If you are attempting to shed some pounds, then it goes without saying that those favorite foods that are high in calories must go, no matter how convenient. Be sure to include foods with high fiber and low fat. If it has been a while since you have eaten cereal in the morning because it is kids’ food, then be a kid again and eat cereal. Of course, not the high sugar variety, but a good quality whole grain cereal. I prefer the organic cereals myself.

2. Another health tip that we sometimes need to be reminded of is to drink plenty of water. You should strive to drink at least eight glasses of water everyday. This could also be water obtained from sources like soup. If you can afford it, try some of the high quality filtered waters like Penta water. Drinking water cleanses the body from harmful impurities and keeps the keep the body hydrated. It also helps to keep your skin looking younger.

3. If you smoke then STOP! Yes, everyone knows that smoking is a horrible habit that ages you faster and, of course, can kill you, so why are you still smoking? If you happen to be pregnant that do everything you can to stop smoking for the sake of your child. Smoking will affect the health of the baby. The harmful content of cigarettes may be passed on to the child to the baby through the bloodstream. Here is another interesting tidbit of information for you women smokers. Did you know that there is research that suggests that female smokers are more susceptible to diseases than male smokers? Female smokers have a elevated threat of getting breast cancer. In addition, you ought to limit your alcohol intake and quit drinking entirely if you are pregnant.

4. Okay, here comes the one obvious health tip that so many people do not want to hear. You must include daily exercise of some kind. Try taking your dog for a walk. So many people have dogs and never walk them. It is a great way to get in some exercise for the both of you. Buy some kind of home gym and use it! For many of us that live in a big city it is sometimes a hassle to get to the gym everyday. Besides dealing with the traffic on the road, we have to deal with the traffic on the machines. And, for some, going to the gym becomes a social event more than a workout. Having a quality piece of fitness equipment in the home can save time. And, unless you must have the social activity at a gym, or need a spotter, you can get a great workout from home. You just have to be disciplined about it. Nowadays, there are even virtual personal trainers. You can get a customized workout plan and motivation via the virtual world.

5. I’m often amazed by this one because we live in an age where vitamins are everywhere. However, so many people seem to not use them, or buy them only to never take them. Use high quality Vitamins and Supplements. If you are an athlete this is even more important. Women especially should take a quality Calcium supplement. Supplementing with Calcium may prevent having cramps and Pre-Menstrual Period (PMS) Symptoms. It may also help prevent Osteoporosis. Another valuable addition is Vitamin E. Vitamin E helps to boost the immune system. Moreover, Vitamin E is said to be help avoid wrinkles that are commonly associated with aging.

Women and Depression or Beauty

Is the fight to reach the top bringing women to their knees? Has the fairer sex really become the weaker sex? Are we depressed or are we just experiencing what men have always known concerning pressure, but because we are women we are a push over for analysis ultimately ending in medication that calms “what ails us”? We must remember that we are still living in a predominately male operated society. Men have the natural instinct to want to “fix it” when anything they perceive as a problem arises. If our reaction to a problem is not to handle it in the strict male fashion, we must be falling apart and need to be fixed by medication, counseling, or both. You are by now asking what do men and their view of our reactions to problems have to do with us being depressed. Well, I’ll tell you.

Women are not men. No matter how short you cut your hair, Madam President, (sarcasm intended) or the fact that you wear pants will ever make you a man. But every day we are told that having the feelings and reactions associated with women is wrong. There are some popular theories going around that say women are making men gay by expecting them to have emotions that are prevalent to women, but these same men will deny that telling women to subdue their emotions, or natural reactions, will have any mental effect on them.

Women are trying to fit into a society built and operated by men. We have certain attitudes about how things should be. For too long we have been told we are wrong and to do something about it. So what do we do? We put it in its place. Somewhere deep in our minds where we don’t dare go. Not knowing what to do with this unnatural act, our hearts and minds are bogged down. There’s no where for it to go. It has no outlet. This is labeled depression.

I guess this sounds like a “let’s get men” attack, but it really isn’t meant to have a negative connotation to it. It is just the natural order of things. Women are smart humans and will learn to adapt in this harsher world in order to survive and one day to thrive again. I am not saying that we will not bring our own form of problem solving to this dilemma, eventually. But for now we must find a way of coping. Fortunately society has given us a way out by giving the monster a name, depression. And because it has a socially acceptable name, it’s okay to have this reaction called depression. I don’t think so!

Women must start to realize that just because we may not be able to have it all right now (emphasis on the may) does not make us any less “of a man” then our hairy counterparts. The female sector must never stop fighting for what is rightfully theirs in equal pay and other rights. But at the same time, we must stop beating ourselves up over the fact that we haven’t arrived yet in the eyes of a society that doesn’t know any better (at least for the moment) then to react in the status quo fashion.

Females have always been overachievers. You know our labels: perfect wife, great cook, and super mom. And now, let us place the added burden of breadwinner to our long list of “must dos”. Unfortunately being an overachiever means that we have to “out do” to be called successful. And we will “out do”, won’t we? What will we get if we aren’t at the top? We get to face that beast that goes by the name of depression. I am the world’s worst for this one. In everything I do I must be the award winner, the highest paid, the fastest runner, whatever. Talk about major self-appointed stresses! But seriously, does this not sound familiar to you?

But we need to find a way to shrug off some of the anxiety and self-appointed stress. Slay the beast by means other than anger or mood altering antidepressants. Why must I now add anger to our problems of emotional out cries? Now more than ever, women are venting their frustration through the use of anger. Road rage by women! Ever seen that one? Ever been on the receiving end of one of those fingers? I am not even coming close to suggesting that women own this one exclusively or even as a higher degree than men. But ask your mom how many times she was cut off, cussed out, and all those other glamorous actions we have come to see all too often, being initiated by a female when she was young. Perhaps you would use the explanation of more female drivers. Could be, but doubt it. We are programming ourselves to push, push, and push to get ahead. Our natural instinct is to react emotionally and unfortunately this is coming out as anger in a lot of situations.

The women I talked with stated they truly believed that women are angrier than they were in the past. The media has put so much pressure on us to be thinner, always look our best, and many times with unreasonable expectations to what is called excepted. Anorexia is at an all time high among women. Health issues are not at the heart of the attack, (no pun intended) on women to be skinny. You are unattractive and not appropriate for a career, marrying, or any other number of outside the home social activities. If you have any excess weight on you, you had better do something about it. But when you can’t reach, for one reason or another, these unreasonable goals, you become depressed.

Career goals, physical appearance, and respect are but a few of the reasons women become depressed. My main concern is for women to find a healthier, more positive way to handle these socially inflicted stresses then becoming depressed, angry, and ultimately becoming addicted to antidepressants. We know that historically men have used alcohol as a means to cope. We see how that faired, don’t we? Let’s not follow their lead but learn from their mistakes. I’ll let you in on a little secret if you don’t tell men. We are actually stronger than they are, as a whole. Men may find this funny and hard to prove, but I am 51 and have seen my share of tragedy. I have watched a lot of men go down the tubes when life smacks them down once or twice but at the same time have seen many women still standing after life has punched them in the stomach many times. Don’t let them tell you that because they are willing to go to war and die for a great cause makes them the stronger sex, either. There ain’t no such thing as a good war as a reason to die. Yes, I know that men start these wars, but you can’t use that against them. Crazy men are the ones starting wars. I just don’t think they should use their patriotic duty as a cause to say they are stronger, but if you ask them why they think they are stronger this seems to be their answer. That’s all I’m saying.

I was on antidepressants for 5 years and I smoke 1 ½ packs of cigarettes a day. I can say I was on them because I, not my doctors, took myself off them. I want to handle life through my own thoughts and strengths. As for the cigarettes, I have currently cut out ½ pack with the hope of quitting. Neither one of these actions has been easy. I will still “slap you into tomorrow” if I am aggravated enough, so I started my own home based business to keep me calmer during my transition. Whatever it takes. But my point is that I have become aware that I am stronger then this and want to be me, just me, and all the good or bad that comes with it.

Come on ladies, do a self-inventory. Are your reactions to situations over the top or are you coping in a positive manner? Pay attention to how you react and don’t excuse it if it’s not exactly lady like. It is not good for your health or your own self-image. When you screamed and yelled at that driver, did it do you any good? Bet not. Bet your blood pressure went through the roof. Why do you think more women are dying from heart attack and stroke then men are now? As we always have in the past, we must come up with a constructive way to stop “the madness”. Our society is mean to each other. You see it and you know it’s true. We are on a path to self-destruction. Take a deep breath, exercise more, try some natural products, become more spiritually involved, or go slower in your climb to the top, whatever it takes. Slow down and smell the roses! You can do it if you will just put a little effort into it. We are overachievers but we are also over comers, go for it with all that makes you a woman!

Women and Alcohol

If you are stressed do you like to have a drink after work to relax?

Alcoholism is different for men and women, although both can suffer from this disorder there are often different reasons why drinking becomes a problem.

Women also metabolize alcohol differently and hence suffer unique health consequences as a result of drinking to excess. They are often more secretive and more harshly treated by society so are often in denial of their habit. Sometimes women feel too ashamed to seek help and therefore sadly they tend to show a much more rapid progression of the disorder than men.

It is estimated that almost one third of alcoholics in the uk are women, health experts also insist that the problems from excessive and long term consumption of alcoholic drinks affect women in more serious ways than men.

Metabolic rates are different in Men and women and this means that because of a higher ratio of body fat in a women’s body they have higher concentrations of alcohol in the blood. Women also have less of the stomach enzyme that breaks down alcohol before it reaches the blood stream so that means that women also absorb as much as 30% more alcohol than a man of the same height and weight.

It is thought that as many as 40% of people who start drinking before the age of 15 years will develop alcoholism in adulthood. Those with a history of Depression, Anxiety and other mental health disorders are more at risk. there is also evidence of hereditary tendency. Alcohol dependency in women is greatest between the ages of 34-49 yrs.

Low self esteem, confidence, Divorce, Bereavement, loneliness and stress are all triggers. Women dependent on alcohol can develop medical complications much sooner than men despite consuming less. They develop liver disease after a shorter period of heavy drinking. There are also hormonal problems for women.

Warning signs of alcohol dependency are:

Cravings, loss of control or being unable to stop once drinking has begun, physical withdrawal symptoms such as shaking and sweating after a period of heavy drinking. Tolerance of alcohol also increases over time and there is often a need for larger amounts to feel the same effect. As alcoholism progresses the user may neglect family, social or work related activities and commitments due to drinking. A person who is dependent on alcohol will often carry on drinking despite concerns from friends or family. They will also continue to drink even in the presence of physical or psychological problems.

Women’s Sexual Desire

A women’s sexual desire can fall for a number of reasons but the good news is you can increase libido and sexual satisfaction, by taking some time tested herbs which will work safely and naturally. Let’s take a look at these herbs in more detail and why they work.

Before we look at the herbs lets take a look at some common problems which cause sexual desire to fall. All women need two key chemicals for optimum sexual health and they are testosterone and estrogen. If the body does not produce enough of either, libido falls and intercourse can become painful. Another common cause of loss of libido is poor blood circulation into the sex organs. Both libido and sexual satisfaction, rely on the sex organs filling with an increased volume of blood.

The above are common physical causes but the mind also plays a key role and it must be free of stress, anxiety, worry and have correct hormonal balance. If your spirit is low or you are worried your body will simply not have enough energy to think about sex.

We will now look at some time tested herbs which taken regularly will increase libido and sexual satisfaction.

This herb increases blood flow around the body and into the sex organs and also acts as a heart tonic.

Avena Sativa

Avena Sativa increases testosterone production in the body, the herb also calms the mind and body which leads to increased sensitivity in the vagina region.

Dong Quai increases estrogen production, boosts blood to the sex organs, helps to keep blood sugar levels steady and is packed with nutrients to help restore hormonal balance. This herb is seen as an essential one for womens health and is frequently taken to alleviate the symptoms of PMT and the menopause.

Damiana

Damiana produces a feeling of mild euphoria which relaxes the whole body in addition, it reduces stress, anxiety and enhances sensitivity in the sex organs. This is another herb which also helps to fight the symptoms of PMT and the Menopause.

Methika

Methika extract contains estrogen-like saponins which help to reduce levels of cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides safely and naturally.

Kumari (Aloe)

Aloe helps the digestive process, increases blood and lymphatic circulation, and also works to keep a number of vital organs healthy which include – the kidneys, liver and gall bladder.

Easy Boosts For Women’s Health

This article focuses on ‘womens health’ and offers a small feast of REALLY USEFUL information gleaned from many years of case work. So, ladies and girls.. here’s where you can start the new year resolution to improve your own day to day energy and fortify your immune system at the same time.

To start with I’ll give you FOUR tissue salts that are REALLY useful for general tiredness. Use them regularly to support yourself through life’s stresses.

Read them through, choose one or two that fit you. You can find them at most health food shops. A good place to keep them is on your bedside table. Have a dose before sleep and when you wake up. They dissolve instantly on your tongue and taste sweet but not in an artificial way.

TISSUE SALTS THAT FOCUS ON TIREDNESS
KALI PHOS: Tired out, feeling weak and irritable. A dose before sleep and on waking.
MAG PHOS: Tired, foggy brain, crampy pains, full of wind.
NAT MUR: Weak and weary, feeling cold, leave me alone to have a cry, ” no. I’m alright really!’, ” every little thing seems to upset me!”
KALI CARB: Back-ache, weakness and sweating. Feeling really cross and hypersensitive. “Feel like I’m giving-out.. back, knees, legs.. uurrgghh”

FOUR REMEDIES FOR A NEW YOU

Next I have four homeopathic remedies for you to consider. All of these are used successfully for women’s health all over the world. I have had occasion to use all of them at one time or another and can highly recommend them to you.

Read them through and see which one fits you and purchase it from your local health food store or pharmacy. Once you have chosen one, have one dose, in the middle of the day for THREE days.

Then review how you are feeling. It helps to keep a diary. Give a little boost to your energy with these short bursts every now and again.

SEPIA: The Sepia mental and emotional ‘state’ can be seen in hundreds of millions of women around the world. She copes with the pressures of being a wife, mother AND income provider. OR she may be a modern woman who hasn’t had a child and is giving all of her energy to a very demanding boss. Then, over time – she finds herself in a state of.. nothingness! ‘can’t feel anything’, ‘can’t be bothered any more’, ‘leave me alone’, I don’t fancy sex’ ( but I guess I’ll have to put up with it!), “I’ve become a rat-bag, I’m irritable with every one and everything,”, “I cry and feel sad but can’t talk about it. I feel defeated and dependent and stuck!”

PULSATILLA: She is a sweet, kind affectionate woman with a mild temperament. She can’t refuse anyone, anything! She loves to please people. She cries easily but her mood changes quickly, sunshine and showers. She needs plenty of support and can hold family members responsible for her own emotional wellbeing… so a little bit ‘needy’, just now and again.

ARS. ALB: This woman is bright and chatty, she looks wonderful and pays a lot of attention to her appearance. The house has to be tidy and she worries about cleanliness – not a bad thing of course – but that worried state extends to being anxious or even feeling fear about all kinds of things. She worries about her health and the health of her family, about death, disease, cancer, being alone, poverty.. and she really needs to have at least one strong person ( usually her partner) who she can really depend on. She’s a restless soul who can’t sit still for long.

CALC CARB: Hard working, not particularly ambitious, this woman is the bedrock of her family and many administration departments in big companies. Her work is steady, and she herself is steady, even passive. She likes organization and order, she is practical and economical. She protects herself and her family from outside influences and has a few niggly fears that she keeps to herself.
