Living alone with safety - Medical Alarms

Unlike India, in the US, people like to live independently and also alone. In India, the parents and grandparents are taken care of by the family and they live with them. However, this is not the case in all other countries. People live alone even when they are in their late 60's or 70's, where they might need some physical help. Do you know someone who lives alone and you care about them? There are a lot of ways you can protect them.

There are new medical products which help to keep the life of elderly intact. Fall alert detector is one that alerts the emergency personnel that the person has fallen and is unable to push a button. This is a very useful product. Why? because, there is a high chance that when we fall we might break our bones. The bones of the old people are even more tender and has a high chance of getting injured. This being the case, it is difficult for the injured person to call for help.

Another helpful product is a GPS Tracking Bracelet with 2-way speakerphone. This helps them to call for help. When we are attacked, either by others or our own body, the first thing we do is panic. We go blank. This device is handy and calls can be made easily without any problem. Medical Alarm has become a necessity for many and if you have anyone living alone, it is better to insist them take precautions. After all, we love them!

Finding difficult to track your goals?

New year is in 2 weeks. Hope you have your next year's goals in mind. I have quite a few from loosing weight to saving money. It is not that we have to wait till New year to set our goals. We can set them whenever we want. The major issue is tracking them. Most of us, including me will be all excited and set unrealistic goals sometimes or even set goals and completely forget about them. But it is not going to be the case this year.

'Goal for it' is a website which helps us track our goals online. Not only for adults, it also helps us track the development of our kids through their kids goal charts. This is very inspiring and helps children learn their duties in a very fun way. I am pretty sure parents will love this. Not only New Year's resolutions, you can set any goal and track your progress. It is always helpful when someone is behind us and Goal for it is one such program, I would say.

You have free tools to set, manage and achieve goals. The process is very simple and they also have helpful video tutorials for teaching the beginners. You get support, motivation, the opportunity to work together and more. It is always easy when you do something in a group. All for free. Don't you think you should give it a try? This is perfect for people like me, who forgets their goals and find it difficult to track their progress. Let me know what your experience, it is always more room to learn.

What do you think of Online Pharmacy Escrow Service?

It is always good to know that there is a service which guarantees you something. Especially when you buy something online, you want to be pretty sure that you will get what you have paid for. Online transactions have become very common now a days, that we even try to do most of our grocery shopping online. Then why not our medicines? When it comes to medicine we need a trustworthy person to believe in. Online Pharmacy Escrow services are those which helps you connect with your favorite pharmacy online and assures you that you will receive what you have paid for.

One such service is Canadian Online Pharmacy. They provide the service world wide and accept the most popular method of payments. Sometimes I do feel that purchasing online is more comfortable. You can shop at your own pace. You can get medicine for almost any type of ailments through this service, as they just help you connect with your usual pharmacy.

Refills are also easy through this services. To make the ordering process simple, they have ordering through phone or live chat. Considering the shipping costs, I personally feel that it will be more profitable if we order in bulk. Not only shipping, ordering in bulk saves a lot of money in many ways. With online shopping becoming more popular I think we must give it a try and avail these services if it satisfies our needs. Do you agree?

Pregnancy and Men

It is very clear that men, now a days, want to get involved more with the pregnancy. When a couple finds that they are pregnant, men are even more proud and happy than women and it is true. They get a sense of accomplishment and a living proof of their manhood. It is very important to them. Is it enough? Not at all.

They want to be a part of the pregnancy. They try to get involved in any way that is possible to show that they care and are equally anxious about it. Most of the women are sensitive and very expressive unlike men. Men keeps their anxiety with themselves. This doesn't mean they don't care.

Possible ways that men can participate in this journey of pregnancy

Before conception:

Every women wants to be cared for and spoken to when they are in pressure. And when a couple decides to enter the parenthood, more pressure is on the women. They are more obsessed and if at all they had to try more than one time, they get easily frustrated. This is where men plays an important role. It is very important for him to console and promise that he will be with her this entire process and they are in this together. Such love talk soothes women for sure.

First Trimester:

The important phase of Pregnancy. Most of the women will have morning sickness and it is very important that they take ample rest if required. So, men pitch in and cook for your lady. Do the laundry, she won't complain on the unwashed stain on her dress. She will be very happy and so will your child. Help in the household chores and make her feel comfortable. Talk to her whenever possible. Ask her how she feels.

Second Trimester:

Your baby is grown a little. You can see your lady with a big tummy. Make her feel that you love her however she looks. Most of the women feel very bad when they go out of shape. They think that this might make the relationship grow apart. But make her understand that it is not the case and you love her even more. Continue helping your lady with household chores and start to have a light walk with her. Be with her in all her ultrasounds and express how much lucky you are to have her as your wife.

Third Trimester:

Continue doing the chores and make sure that she does her regular pregnancy exercises. Make sure you are in the labor ward when she is giving birth. Hold her hands and soothe her. Make all the arrangements for your baby and be proud father!

Lung Cancer- The most common cause of cancer deaths

When I was browsing through the net, I came across an article describing the struggle of a pregnant women from cancer. I was shocked. How could this even happen? I felt proud of her for being so brave. Then I started reading about different kinds of cancer and their effects. Did you know? Lung Cancer is the most common cause of cancer deaths.

Over 1/3 cancer deaths in US is because of Lung Cancer. This is huge! Lung cancer is a disease of uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. This growth may lead to metastasis, which is invasion of adjacent tissue and infiltration beyond the lungs. There are mainly 2 types of lung cancer namely mall cell lung carcinoma and non-small cell lung carcinoma. Both are different in the way they are treated.

There are many Lung Cancer Symptoms but, we all know Smoking is the main cause for Lung Cancer. Exposure to harmful chemicals and environmental conditions play a major role in causing this type of cancer.

As any other Cancer treatment, Lung Cancer Treatment also includes Chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In addition to this Surgery and Drug treatments such as erlotinib (Tarceva) are also prescribed.

For Diagnosing Lung Cancer, X-rays and CT scans are used. Sometimes doctors also conduct 'A bronchoscopy', to identify the cancer stage. A bronchoscopy is a hospital test in which a narrow tube with a light and lens on the end will be passed down the trachea and into your lungs.

These are just introduction to Lung Cancer. Do enlighten yourself with numerous articles and information found in the web and be well informed about this disease. Knowledge is power.
