The tumult of a sound (estimated in decibels, or dB) and the length of introduction are connected. The louder the sound, the shorter the introduction can be before harm happens. For instance, 8 long periods of presentation to 85-dB commotion once a day can start to harm a man's ears after some time. Utilizing power instruments (at around 100 dB), tuning in to uproarious stereo headsets (at around 110 dB), going to a stone show (at about l20 dB), or hearing a discharge (at 140 to 170 dB) may harm the becoming aware of a few people after just a couple of times. 

Side effects of commotion instigated hearing misfortune

Regardless of whether there are no more side effects, a portion of the cells in the internal ear may have been obliterated by the commotion. Your listening ability comes back to typical if enough sound cells are left in your internal ear. In any case, you will build up an enduring hearing misfortune if the clamor introduction is rehashed and more cells are annihilated.

Huge tubes loaded up with liquid encompass the delicate tissue of the internal ear. Hearing misfortune happens when the internal ear is harmed. 

Visit presentation to boisterous or respectably uproarious clamor over a significant lot of time can harm the delicate tissue of the internal ear.

Kegel Exercises for Your Pelvic Muscles


At the bottom of your pelvis are layers of muscles known as your pelvic floor. They are shaped like a hammock and connect to the front, back, and sides of your pelvic bone. Your pelvic muscles support the bladder, rectum, and sexual organs. They hold them in place and help control the flow of urine. For women, pregnancy and childbirth can weaken the pelvic muscles. For men, prostate surgery can weaken the pelvic muscles. Your risk also increases as you age and if you are overweight.

Weak pelvic muscles can cause you to leak urine. Luckily, there are exercises that can strengthen your pelvic muscles. These are called Kegel exercises. They can help you regain control of your bladder.

Path to improved health
You can do Kegel exercises almost anywhere, at any time. It is easiest to start off doing them lying down. As they become easier, you can do them while driving, working, or watching TV.

Before you start the exercises, you’ll need to locate your pelvic muscles. They are the same muscles you use to stop urine flow or hold in gas. To exercise, pull in (contract) or squeeze your pelvic muscles. Hold this for 3 to 5 seconds, then release and rest for 3 to 5 seconds. As you continue, you can increase the amount of time you hold and rest up to 10 seconds. Do 10 to 20 exercises 3 times per day.

You may not notice change in your muscles right away. As with other muscles in your body, it can take 4 to 8 weeks of daily exercise. Keep a log of your exercises to track your progress.

Things to consider
If you struggle with incontinence, try contracting your muscles after going to the bathroom. This can help ensure you have gotten all the urine out. Be careful though. Doing Kegel exercises mid-urination can cause a bladder infection.

You also should tighten your muscles before certain movements. This includes sneezing, coughing, laughing, jumping, or lifting a heavy object. The contraction can prevent pelvic muscle damage and urine leakage.

Talk to your doctor about Kegel exercises. They can help make sure you are doing them correctly. Keep them informed of your progress or if your problem isn’t improving. You may need another form of treatment, such as pelvic floor physical therapy or surgery.

Questions to ask your doctor
Is a weak pelvic floor associated with other health issues?
What does it mean to contract or tighten my pelvic floor muscles?
Should Kegel exercises be painful?
Will I always have to do Kegel exercises?


Herbal Medicine And Medicinal Herbs


What Is Herbal Medicine?
Herbal medicine, also known as herbalism or botanical medicine, is a medical system based on the use of plants or plant extracts that may be eaten or applied to the skin. Since ancient times, herbal medicine has been used by many different cultures throughout the world to treat illness and to assist bodily functions. While herbal medicine is not a licensed profession in the United States, herbal remedies in the form of extracts, tinctures, capsules and tablets as well as teas may be recommended by healthcare practitioners of many different disciplines as a practical way to address a wide variety of medical conditions.

Herbal medicine blurs the line between foods and medicines – a line that, in many cultures, was never drawn in the first place. Using herbs and spices that have disease-preventive effect in foods is one of the best ways to take advantage of their healing power. For example, it appears that the daily use of the spice turmeric in curry dishes is one reason elderly people in India have one of the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s disease in the world.

What Conditions Is Herbal Medicine Used For?
Herbal medicine has been used to treat or alleviate virtually every possible medical condition. Some of the most popular herbal remedies and the conditions for which they are used include:


aloe used topically for minor burns, sunburns, skin irritation or inflammation
arnica used topically for bruises, sprains, sore muscles and joints
chamomile tea ingested for upset stomach, heartburn, indigestion and colic
comfrey, in a topical poultice only, for bedsores, diabetic ulcers, certain spider bites and staph infections contracted on tropical beaches
dong quai for women and ginseng for men and women, ingested to improve general health and stamina – in this application, these are known as tonics. Other tonics include eleuthero and rhodiola.
echinacea ingested for colds, flu, sore throat
garlic ingested to possibly reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, treat fungal infections and colds
ginger ingested for nausea and motion sickness and as an anti-inflammatory
mullein ingested for chest congestion and dry, bronchial coughs
passionflower ingested for non-sedating relaxation
peppermint tea ingested for indigestion, nausea and other digestive problems
peppermint oil (in enteric-coated capsules) ingested for irritable bowel syndrome and other chronic intestinal ailments
tea tree oil applied topically for fungal infections such as athlete’s foot and fungal infections of the toenails and fingernails
turmeric ingested to combat inflammation and protect against cancer and Alzheimer’s disease
valerian ingested for sleeping problems.
This is only a brief overview of some of the many safe and effective herbal remedies.

What Should One Expect On A Visit To A Practitioner Of Herbal Medicine?
What to expect depends on the type of practitioner you’re consulting. A medical doctor, osteopathic doctor, or naturopath may recommend an herbal remedy in the course of an office visit if you have made a specific complaint. A practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine or ayurvedic medicine may recommend an herbal remedy in the course of a consultation for a specific health problem or to address whole health from a holistic perspective.

According to the American Herbalist Guild, herbalists can practice either as primary health care providers or adjunctive health care consultants. The Guild explains that most visits to an herbalist begin with a consultation about your past and current health history, your dietary and lifestyle practices, or other factors related to your health issue. Then, according to the Guild “the herbalist, with your involvement, should develop an integrated herbal program that addresses your specific health needs and concerns.”

Are There Any Side Effects Or Conditions Where Herbal Medicine Should Be Avoided?
Yes. When taking medication, you should investigate possible interactions with an herbal remedy you may be considering. Be careful about mixing herbs and drugs that have similar actions. For example, it may not be a good idea to mix anticoagulant drugs with ginkgo, a natural blood thinner; the herb valerian, a sedative, probably shouldn’t be mixed with prescription sleeping pills. Similarly, avoid mixing herbs and drugs that have opposite actions. Other agents may alter the way a medication is handled by the body. For example, St. John’s wort, a natural remedy for depression, may reduce the effectiveness of some drugs by causing them to be metabolized too quickly. When in doubt, check with your pharmacist about herb/drug interactions. In addition, herbs that can thin blood, such as dong quai, feverfew, supplemental garlic, and ginger could cause problems if taken before surgery as could herbs such as ginseng and licorice root that affect heart rate and blood pressure. Sedative herbs like kava and valerian may increase the effects of anesthesia. It is best to stop taking any of these herbs at least 10-14 days before surgery, and be sure to tell your physician that you’ve been taking them.

Pregnancy:  It is best to avoid taking any herbs during pregnancy, especially the first trimester, unless you’re under the care of a knowledgeable practitioner. Exceptions: it’s considered safe to take up to 1,000 mg of ginger in capsule or candied forms for morning sickness; short-term use of echinacea also seems safe for pregnant women who develop colds or flu.
Nursing: Apart from herbs that can stimulate breast-milk production (fenugreek, blessed thistle, and alfalfa), women who are breastfeeding should avoid most medicinal herbs for the first four to six months of a baby’s life.
Children: Herbal remedies that are safe for adults may not be safe for children. For guidance, see Healthy Child, Whole Child, by Stuart Ditchek, M.D. and Russell Greenfield, M.D (HarperResource, 2009).
Is There A Governing Body That Oversees Or Credentials Practitioners In Herbal Medicine?
No. The practice of herbal medicine is not a licensed profession in the United States. Because herbs are sold in the U.S. as dietary supplements available to anyone, consumers should educate themselves before buying. Good resources include the American Botanical Council, the Herb Research Foundation and HerbMed.

How Does One Get In Touch With A Practitioner Of Herbal Medicine?
Anyone can claim to be an herbalist, so be sure to look for someone with extensive training. Practitioners of both Traditional Chinese Medicine and ayurvedic medicine rely on herbs for treatment. You may be able to find a knowledgeable practitioner through the American Herbalist Guild. Keep in mind that professional herbalists who advise clients on the use of medicinal herbs are typically not licensed to diagnose or treat disease.

Herbal medicine is also a mainstay of naturopathic physicians (NDs or NMDs) who use natural approaches to promote wellness and treat disease. Naturopaths typically cannot prescribe pharmaceuticals, and not all practitioners have attended a four-year naturopathic medical school, so prospective patients should ask about training. You can locate a practitioner via the website of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians. While some MDs and DOs (osteopathic physicians) are learning about herbs and other natural remedies, it is unlikely that herbal medicine was included in their formal training.

Cat Food For Urinary Tract Health


The average cat with urinary tract disease (FLUTD) – such as straining in the urine of an estimated 40 to 44 percent of all healthy dogs and are not a cause for concern unless accompanied by signs of a urinary tract infection. According to the Merck Veterinary Manual (2005), “Struvite crystals are commonly observed in canine and feline urine.

 Struvite crystalluria in dogs is not a problem unless there is the surprisingly high amount of salt. What the heck is up with the dried egg product and powdered cellulose? Turns out, after some surfing around… “dried egg product” is a nonsense term that really doesn’t describe anything (duh – obviously).

 The ‘egg product’ could be produced from whole properly stored eggs and then, I assume, dried (dehydrated?). It could be just whites or just yokes, really it can be anything related to eggs and it could be made from broken, damaged eggs, and/or not properly stored and inspected eggs, or it could be made from broken, damaged eggs, and/or not properly stored and inspected eggs, or it could be any kind of egg (platypus lay eggs…).

 I wonder if eggshell is considered egg product too? The powdered cellulose is just weird… see Wall Street Journal Humm… tree bark? I may have found a gold mine source!
