Whether it's the love that partners feel for each other, the love between a parent and a child, the sometimes difficult love that siblings can bear for each other or even the love between a human and a pet, love is a powerful healing emotion.
The old saying “love heals all” has been used as a motivational mantra during hard times. This elusive idea that love, one of the most powerful emotions of them all, can bring about a sense of peace is overwhelming; in the best way possible.
Unfortunately, it takes a deep understanding of yourself and the world around you to grasp the concept that love really can heal a majority of the things we go through. Let’s consider how.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) can be devastating to men (and their partners) and unfortunately, millions of men suffer from the condition.
If you go to the doctor to talk about the issue, you’re likely to get put on one or more of the popular medications used to treat the condition.
While they can be effective (temporarily), these medications come with a raft of side effects, some of which are decidedly unpleasant. Even worse, these medications aren’t really a cure, they’re more like a temporary workaround. And in fact, can make the problem worse in the long run.
"When he retired, I suddenly realized that I didn't want to spend the rest of my life with this man. The thought of constantly having him around just made me shudder."
Unfortunately, this seniors divorce scenario is not uncommon. A couple can grow apart without realizing it until an impending retirement brings home how much time they'll be spending together, relying on each other almost exclusively for company. Perhaps for the first time ever, they gradually (or even suddenly) understand that's not an attractive deal.
Seniors divorce can affect both women and men.

This was the result of a fitness level test that I did yesterday. And although it says I'm 74 years old, I'm only 3 days away from my 75th birthday, so it's reasonable to say I've knocked 43 years off my fitness age.
Here are 5 essential rules to follow with any anti aging workout routines:
If you’re a man or a woman who is serious about looking younger, you need to be taking action every day. The good news is that you don’t have to spend hours beautifying your skin and fighting the visible signs of aging. In fact, an effective daily anti-aging regimen takes just a few minutes each day.
An effective daily skincare routine is essential if you want to keep looking young as the years pass by. Every night before bed, make sure you cleanse and tone your skin, exfoliate and moisturize.
This will remove dead skin cells and toxins from the skin and encourage the growth of fresh and youthful new skin cells. To get the maximum anti-aging benefit from your daily skincare regimen, make sure you use organic skincare products or natural solutions.
For 7 days to smoother, firmer, younger looking skin, I recommend Ageless Glow from BioTRUST. It's non-GMO, free of harmful chemicals, made with the highest-quality natural ingredients and is never tested on animals.
While often thought of as an exclusively female hormone, estrogen is an important factor when considering a skin care routine for men and women over 50.
With the drop-off in estrogen production that naturally occurs as you age, your skin becomes dry and is irritated more easily. It loses its resilience and youthful appearance.
At this stage, you should consider restocking your bathroom shelves with products that reflect these changing conditions.
Statistically, as we reach middle age and beyond, our risk of heart disease increases dramatically.
It is in fact the leading cause of death in most Western countries, particularly the United States, Britain and Australia.
For men, the risk of a heart attack increases greatly after the age of 45 and for women, after the age of 50. The average age for the first heart attack in men is 64 and for women is 70.
Clearly, there are many, many factors that come into play, and your doctor is the first person that you should turn to for advice.
But diet is one of those factors. Obesity, eating too much of the wrong kinds of food and a large sugar intake all contribute to an increased danger of heart attack.
Many questions are asked about shrimp and cholesterol online. In general, many people are concerned about cholesterol levels in foods such as meat, eggs and dairy products. In the case of the shrimp, the story about cholesterol is different, because a number of studies have shown that the high percentage of ‘good fats‘ in shrimp reduces the influence of cholesterol and that the vast majority of people can simply eat shrimps as part of a balanced diet.
Years ago shrimps were seen as a taboo for heart patients or for people who had to watch their cholesterol. This is because a small portion of, for example, 350 grams contains about 200 mg of cholesterol. For people at high risk of cardiovascular disease, this is their maximum recommended daily allowance. (For a healthy person, 300 mg is the recommended daily amount.)
Shrimp, however, have a very low total fat (about 1.5 grams per portion) and contain virtually no saturated fat. Saturated fat is known to be particularly harmful to the heart and blood vessels, partly because our body can efficiently convert it to LDL (or bad) cholesterol. But the LDL level is only a part of what affects your risk of cardiovascular disease.
The ketogenic diet has been proven to be a very effective method of weight loss. Thousands of people all over the world have tried it and the results have been amazing.
It’s not as stringent and unforgiving as the paleo diet, but it’s also not as lenient as the Mediterranean diet. There are a few rules to follow with the ketogenic diet to ensure that you lose fat.
Usually when people face setbacks with the keto diet, they’re probably flouting one of the rules without realizing it. In this article, we’ll look at a few reasons why your weight loss is not happening even though you’re on a keto diet.
The ketogenic diet is one of the fastest ways to lose weight. When your diet is mostly comprised of fats with a low amount of protein and carbs, your body enters a state of ketosis. During this state, your body will burn fat for fuel and your stubborn fat stores will be depleted.
Despite the effectiveness of the keto diet, most people want even faster results. In this article, you’ll be given 5 tips that when combined with the keto diet will accelerate your weight loss.
