The thyroid function to iodine, so the disease itself is directly related to any lack of this mineral. The most important sources of iodine include iodized salt, and red and white seafood, milk also. The mineral is used as fuel to produce thyroid hormones, which are the regulating body metabolism. The thyroid may stop making these hormones, causing hypothyroidism, or produced in excess to trigger hyperthyroidism.
The symptoms of the disorders are precisely opposite each other, because while the first condition that the person’s metabolism to slow down, the second at speeds up to the end. Thus, when both hypothyroidism is constipation, bloating, fat, sadness or depression and intolerance to cold. And when it comes to hyperthyroidism, a person goes to the bathroom too many times a day even with diarrhea, lose weight, without apparent reason, you feel anxious or accelerated, and suffers from sweating. Hyperthyroidism is caused by a goiter and abnormal thyroid growth, once seen more people with güegüecho without knowing it was caused by iodine deficiency, was said to be too heavy for carrying luggage or something. With the thyroid must be careful because its symptoms can be confused with other conditions, including obesity, also with anxiety disorders or depression. Read the rest of this entry »
PLANNING METHODS OF REPRODUCTION
To carry out family planning, contraceptive methods exist. Such a method is used with a very specific purpose which is to prevent pregnancy.
But it must be adjusted to the needs of each partner, advised, ie obtaining an accurate and detailed information on how to use, efficiency, cost, advantages, disadvantages, etc., and medical monitoring, consulting a professional.
There is no ideal contraceptive method, therefore, to increase its effectiveness, some experts recommend a combination thereof.
Contraceptive methods cover a variety of user needs, are safe and offer many health benefits and may provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases.
The most common contraceptive methods are:
Condoms: Male condoms are thin sheaths of rubber, vinyl or natural products that are placed over the erect penis. Condoms can be treated with spermicide for added protection. They stop sperm, ie removed the semen during ejaculation be retained there and not have access to the female reproductive system, also prevents microorganisms (STDs, including HIV and HIV and AIDS) from passing from one member of partner to another. The way you use the condom is placed over the erect penis before starting sex (carnal knowledge between men and women he) should leave a space at the tip for the semen is deposited there. After ejaculation, the condom should be held securely in place while withdrawing the penis from the vagina to prevent sperm from coming in contact with it. Condoms are disposable and can be used only once, one for each sex. The advantages of this method is that it is safe when used correctly. The disadvantages that can bring the use of condoms may be that these are broken while being used, but this does not happen you have to use condoms that are new and have been stored properly, use those condoms with reservoir tip or let sufficient space at the tip for the semen has nowhere to stay when ejaculation occurs, use condoms come lubricated with spermicide, this combines with a latex barrier effective action of the chemical to kill sperm. The effectiveness rate is 88% approximately. Condoms can be purchased at doctors’ offices, commercial establishments, including supermarkets, convenience stores, pharmacies, etc., are easily and requires no prescription. It is inexpensive and has no contraindications.
Condoms: The female condom is a thin plastic coating with polyurethane rings at opposite ends. These are inserted into the vagina before intercourse. Like male condoms, female condoms prevent sperm from gaining access to the female reproductive tract and prevent microorganisms (STDs, including HIV and HIV and AIDS) from passing from one partner to another.
VAGINAL DIAPHRAGM The diaphragm is a flexible dome-shaped latex cup that is inserted into the vagina before intercourse and covers the cervix. This prevents sperm from gaining access to the upper reproductive tract (uterus and fallopian tubes) and serves as a container for the spermicide destroys (the sperm). It can be used more than once. The woman inserts the diaphragm into the vagina, this must be lubricated with jelly, before intercourse. Must remain in the vagina for 6 to 8 hours after intercourse, but must be removed within 24 hours. After each use the diaphragm is washed with water, dried and stored in its case. The advantage provided by the use of this element is that once learned its proper use, requires medical control, except after pregnancy, childbirth or weight change in women. For this technique to be effective and avoid pregnancy, must be placed correctly and used every time the couple have sex. This method requires prior review by the physician to prescribe tailored to each woman. The diaphragm is available in a pharmacy with a prescription.
Withdrawal: This method consists of removing the penis from the vagina before ejaculation occurs. This prevents much sperm from entering the vagina. This technique requires man to identify the time before ejaculation and withdraw the penis before semen is. The disadvantage is that there is a high risk that the woman becomes pregnant. Using this method requires great control of oneself. Couples often find that the practice of this technique leaves them physically and emotionally unsatisfied, so it is little used as a permanent method of contraception. It is a technique to use occasionally, when no other method available.
Many people do diet foods by reducing fat and increased protein. The man who wants to have big muscles also intentionally expand the protein in food intake. Though the concept was wrong, the excess protein is precisely the source of the disease for the body.
Protein is necessary to build body muscle, skin tissue, hair, nails and more. But be careful, mostly eating protein could endanger health. There have been many scientific studies that prove the dangers of excess protein for the body.
“The number of proteins that more than 30 percent of calories your body needs could endanger health”. Unlike fat cells that can be stored in fat tissue if the excess, the body does not have a place to store excess protein. Therefore, most of the protein is converted into fat body first to be saved. This is the key of the dangers of excess protein.
The more protein that is converted into fat in the body’s fat stores to grow, and that means the risk of disease will come from fat, ranging from high cholesterol to heart disease
Excess protein is not good for the kidneys, liver and causes the body to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Excess protein is also closely linked to osteoporosis and cancer.
Excess protein can produce compounds that are toxic ketones. These compounds will cause the kidneys work harder to get them out of the body. As a result, the kidneys will need more water and hence dehydration appear.
If the body is dehydrated, weight can be decreased due to muscle and bone mass decreases. As a result, there is the risk of osteoporosis. Dehydration also causes the kidneys to stress and its effects will impact on the heart.
Ketone compounds and dehydration also causes the body to become weak, dizzy, bad breath and others. Protein can also cause allergic reactions, such as dermatitis topic, chilblain, collagen disease, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Excessive animal protein can damage DNA and cells change into cancer cells.
Ideally someone needs 0.72 grams of protein for each kilogram of body weight. So if you weight 80 kg, the protein that is required is about 57 grams.
If someone reproduce the consumption of protein without carbohydrate intake, the body will turn protein into glucose that should be the task of producing glucose carbohydrates.
But the changed proteins are not able to build muscle. Needed to build muscle is to exercise regularly with a sufficient protein intake. However, the body still needs protein synthesis to enzymes, hormones, and others against infection.
For that, should act in balance if they want to consume high protein foods like meat, cheese, milk and eggs.
