30% Of All People Suffer From Sinus Infections
by: Paul Hood
Have you ever felt like your head is going to explode? Felt intense pressure behind your eyes making it next to impossible to concentrate. Had headaches, pain in the upper jaws, fever, coughs and runny nose? If your answer is yes, then you could be suffering from Sinus infection.
According to Mark Cichocki, our sinuses are air pockets located inside the bones in the skull. They are located to either side of the nose (maxillary), behind and in between the eyes (ethmoid), in the forehead (frontal), and there is one much further back in the head (sphenoid). These spaces contain mucus that drains by way of small pin holes in the sinuses. When these sinuses grow swollen and prevents the proper drain of mucus, sinusitis is the result. Sinusitis attacks may last until 12 weeks or more depending on the gravity of the infection. Unlike colds which is viral, sinusitis may sometimes be caused by bacteria. The accumulated mucus from the plugged sinuses serves as the breeding ground for these microorganisms. At least 30% of the population suffers from sinusitis each year.

by: Anthony Meijers
Sourcing medical equipment is an important task for people such as physicians, doctors and organizations such as refurbishers, manufacturers, dealers and leasing companies.
Some websites specializing in locating medical equipment, both new and used, will carry catalogs... both online and physical catalogs. Subscribing to several catalogs will enable you to locate the precise medical equipment you're looking for as well as give you a comparison on the prices for the items, shipping costs and delivery times.... all of which can vary tremendously.

If You are tired of losing the same weight over and over, and feeling like a failure because your last "diet" didn't work, try these tips to not only lose weight, but lose it for good. I have watched hundreds of clients over the years and almost without exception, those that lose their weight once and for all have mastered these tips and made their weight loss Stress Free
ē Be Responsible for What You Eat -Studies show that people who are 20 or more pounds overweight underestimate their caloric intake by up to 1000 calories per day, while people of a normal weight under estimate by only several hundred, There are 2 main culprits for this. First, many people are unaccustomed to "true" serving sized of most foods. For a start, begin paying attention to the Serving size information on the foods that you eat. Also, it helps to use a measuring cup and food scale to acclimate yourself to what 1/2 c or 1 tbs. of something actually looks like. Second - Start paying attention to your unconscious eating habits -- at the television or the computer, in the car, while you're cooking or cleaning up -- and focus on consciously enjoying the foods you eat, while being aware of the calories you consume.
Yes, You Can Lose Weight!
by: Kristine Peterson
Weight loss is one of the biggest industries in the world! And for those of us that need to lose weight it is the biggest struggle of our lives! The industry takes advantage of the fact that we donít want to give up our ďlittle pleasuresĒ by telling us we donít have to. They also know we donít want to get all sweaty, out of breathe, and feeling pain, so they tell us we donít have to exercise. ďAll you have to do is take this pill every day and the pounds will melt away, as if by magic!Ē they tell us. But, if you look at the small print they go on to say, ďdiet and exercise will make it work even better.Ē But, come on, when you really stop and think about it realistically, of course it isnít just going to happen by taking a pill. We have to put more effort into it than that just because of physics and gravity if for no other reason. How is a pill going to make your body go against gravity? It isnít. It may help us burn fat, but the fat only comes back if we keep eating the way we have been and if the pill burns the new fats that we put into our bodies the old fat is still there. And besides all that what side effects is the pill having that isnít good for us? And just look at all the money we spend to lose weight and then frustratingly it doesnít happen and we could have spent that money on a cruise!
Well-known mental health people tell us that being overweight begins with the way we feel about ourselves. For some that might be a clue as to why they are overweight and give them a starting point. But I have found that losing a few pounds is what starts me feeling better about myself.
