Research Findings: Effects of CBD on Cirrhosis

What is Cirrhosis? For those who have hepatitis or have abused alcohol for many years, cirrhosis is a real concern. It is even a concern for people who have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease associated with obesity and diabetes as these can also cause cirrhosis down the road. The liver is responsible for detoxifying your body from harmful substances, keeping the blood clean, and making nutrients that are important for your body to function.

The Healthy Mom: How Having Kids Can Enhance Your Wellness Lifestyle

When you become a Mom, you give over a part of your life to the raising of your children. There's a lot of societal talk about "having it all" - Moms that retain their identity and their life while raising kids. It's a seductive thought, too - and most of us strive to keep something that makes us, well, us. It's not the best idea psychologically to completely absorb yourself in the task of raising your children. For one thing, you're just setting yourself up for a nasty future case of "empty nest syndrome." Nevertheless, what are the reasons you became a Mom?

But, if you want a workout that shocks your body, works you hard and is a whole lot of fun, any of the dozens of dance styles would be an excellent choice. Cycling If you’ve done spin before, then you’ll know just … [Read more...]
