When you think of a brain, you probably imagine that pink, wrinkly organ in your skull, but we don’t have to stop there! Neither the brain’s functions, nor its cells, are confined to the organ we normally think of as the brain.

5 Basic Tips on Working Out

When it comes to working out, the “right” way to work out varies from person to person. However there are a few basic tips that most people who work out follow. I will list out 5 basic tips that are used as common guidelines when starting to workout.

Seniors: Strategies For Preventing Falls and Remaining Independent

Falls among seniors are at epidemic proportions. Nearly one-third of people over age 65 will fall, and nearly two-thirds of those who fall will fall again within six months. And these are just the reported falls. For those 85 and older, one fall in 10 results in a hip fracture, and one-fourth of those die within six months of the injury. 25% of those who fracture a hip require life-long nursing care, and the cost is prohibitive; roughly $75,000 and more per year. Pretty sobering statistics.

Human health has long been an issue of great interest and curiosity besides the subject of vast research and studies. What makes us tick? The human body is like a well-oiled machine and functions well when all the systems are carrying out their ‘duties’ properly in conjunction with each other.

Body Fat – How It Affects Our Health

Bursitis: Causes, Symptoms, & Treatment

First things first… there are about 160 bursae throughout the human body. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac lined with special cells which secrete a lubricating fluid rich in collagen and proteins. It functions as a gliding surface to decrease friction between the bones, tendons, and muscles near the joints. Bursitis, then, is inflammation of a bursa, and it can cause mild, moderate, or even severe pain.
