Many couples experience issues with having a baby. With some couples, it is determined that the woman has infertility issues, while in others, it is the man. In other cases, both partners may have problems or there is an unexplained issue. It’s been shown that 1 out of every 8 couples that want to have a child will experience difficulty with becoming pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy.
Age is often a contributing factor with becoming and sustaining a pregnancy. The most fertile time for women to conceive is when they are between the ages of 20 and 24. This period of fertility begins to decline when women are 30, and even more so when they are 35. When wom
Although embarrassing, sweating is a natural part of the body?s functions to maintain balance. When the brain determines the body is overheating, the nervous system sends the neurotransmitter acetylcholine to the sweat glands, which then releases sweat to the skin. Sweat moistens the skin and then cools it when evaporation takes place, effectively keeping the body from overheating.
According to Dr. Robert Sallis in an interview with LiveScience, ?The normal range for sweating is very wide. Some people may only sweat half a liter during an hour of intensive activity, while some may sweat three or four liters, and both are still within a normal range.?
While the average person sweats up to six liters a day,

These conditions are pleural effusions, which is the build up of water in the lungs and malignant ascites that refers to the accumulation of fluid within the peritoneal cavity.

Sleep apnea is a killer. Many people do not even realize they have the condition until it is too late. There are stories by the dozens of two spouses going to sleep and only one waking up. It is a very serious situation.
Many just go through their lives thinking they simply have a severe snoring problem, and that as long as people are outside of earshot, nobody is getting hurt. But, sleep apnea is more than just loud snoring.
Sleep apnea is a relatively common disorder in which the sufferer has pauses in their breathing, sometimes one, two, or more, or where their breath goes very shallow during the night, where they are barely breathing at all. These pauses in breathing can last for just a few seconds to a minute or more and may occur up to 30 times or more per hour. Typica
Most of us have a paradoxical relationship with our health. On the one hand, we want to be healthy and do all that we can to ensure a life without illness or injury. But on the other hand, we often avoid things like routine check-ups, even if they’re relatively quick and painless. There are a few possible reasons for this. Some people are so self-conscious they don’t even like when a doctor fully examines them.

These exams aren’t necessarily harmful, but they’re not always pleasant either. Others still might simply be afraid of what their doctor will tell them. No one wants to hear they have high blood pressure, need to change their diet, exer
