      Nebulizing: A ‘FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE” TOOL FOR YOUR HOME MEDICINE CABINET

      Nebulizing: A ‘FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE” TOOL FOR YOUR HOME MEDICINE CABINET

      Think for a minute about your favorite handyman who knows just how to fix problems in your home.  He probably wears a tool belt and has a truckload of essential tools.  Once he assesses what your job needs, he knows exactly what tools he needs to get the job done right.  Every good carpenter carries multiple tools, but his training is what enables him to do the job right.  In a similar way, to be effective and even exceptional in caring for our own health, we not only need the right “tools” on hand, but we also need to educate ourselves on how to use them effectively, especially if we know our health has been compromised.    

      A “first line of defense” tool everyone should have in his or her home is a nebulizer.

      HANDLING STRESS DURING COVID-19

      As individuals, many of us feel we have lost control.  Someone else is dictating what we can and can’t do, where we can and can’t work, how we can and can’t conduct our daily lives.  It is uncomfortable to some and paralyzing to others.

      Where are you on that stress meter?  How can we bring a sense of calm back to our lives that don’t look at all normal right now? 

      First and foremost, contrary to what the media would have us believe, realize YOU ARE NOT HELPLESS!

      OXYTOCIN AND ITS LITTLE KNOWN BENEFITS

      OXYTOCIN AND ITS LITTLE KNOWN BENEFITS

      Oxytocin, the “cuddle hormone” which we discussed in the last blog (click here to read), has for years been relegated only to the OBGYN’s office for its relationship to childbirth and breastfeeding.  Ignored by doctors and researchers alike for years, its other amazing abilities have only recently been studied, and to date there is still no medical description of a deficiency in oxytocin. Beyond its sexual benefits as previously discussed, oxytocin has come on the scene with several newly found roles.  Below we will discuss several of the more researched benefits of oxytocin.

      Oxytocin also plays a role in mood stability, aiding in the treatment of schizophrenia, lowering blood pressure in women since it is a vasodilator, increasing milk supply in lactating women, mental alertness, neuroplasticity of the brain, appetite reduction, inducing labor, pain control during labor, and stopping hemorrhaging after delivery.
