Regaining Your pH Balance

BSTKIT_500x500Acidification of the body’s internal environment is responsible for many illnesses, which is why it is necessary to reduce or eliminate acidification. This is the surest way to regain pH balance and make all the problems that create imbalance disappear.

The treatment plan to counter acidification aims first to reduce the amount of acids the body takes in. This is a crucial step as long as large quantities of acids are entering the body. Diet is adjusted so that alkaline foods and drinks predominate over acid foods. Dietary reform is a simple step; however its effect is considerable. Improved oxidation of acids is obtained by introducing or increasing physical activity (exercise). Eliminating the acids already present in the tissues is accelerated by consuming medicinal plants that increase the flow of urine and those that enhance the production of sweat. Continue reading

Euro tub safety improvement from Teknomek

image0011Teknomek recently announced the launch of its new Euro Tub Safety Handle for pushing and tipping Euro Tubs safely without bending. The Safety Handle fits both 200lt and 300lt sizes and has been designed to clamp a Euro Tub firmly first time, whilst being easy to attach and remove.

Teknomek’s Managing Director Tom Worth commented: “We have been receiving feedback from customers that the standard industry design Euro Tubs can be difficult to handle when full. In particular, the 200lt Euro Tub handles are very low. However, their standard shape is compatible with mechanical lifting machines and therefore needs to remain the same. Teknomek have applied their design expertise to the problem and have produced a cost effective, safe and hygienic solution. Our Safety Handle has been ergonomically designed to allow a firm grip for handling heavy bins, whilst being immediately detachable when no longer needed. We know how important Health & Safety is to our customers and we are very pleased to be able to assist with safe designs.” Continue reading

Sunset launches “Inside Out”, a digital book on pelvic floor problems & exercises

Summary: Sunset Digital Books has just launched an eBook on pelvic floor problems in women. Worldwide, women worldwide, over 40 years of age are potentially damaging their pelvic floor region through inappropriate exercises and use of certain gymnasium equipment. With the correct advice on the right kind of exercise, these women can address their pelvic floor problems and exercise with confidence and control.
Brisbane, Australia. 18 May 2009. Experts Michelle Kenway (physiotherapist) and Professor Judith Goh (Uro-gynecologist) have teamed up to produce Inside Out, a comprehensive guide to pelvic floor problems & exercises that explains safe, effective exercise for good health, fitness and pelvic floor support.
Some exercises that are commonplace in gyms and exercise classes, including sit-ups, are contributing to distressing pelvic floor problems in women at risk—especially women over 40 years of age, after childbirth, in menopause, or following commonly performed surgical procedures such as hysterectomy and vaginal repair. Women in various at-risk groups are encouraged to exercise, but repeated inappropriate exercise and poor technique can cause catastrophic pelvic floor problems such as vaginal prolapse where, literally, their insides fall out. Similarly, incorrect exercise can result in bladder control problems. To rectify these issues, pelvic floor exercise is recommended, but many women are embarrassed by their condition and lose confidence in their ability to perform even the most fundamental exercises to maintain fitness and well-being.
“Some ladies actually present to the gynecologist after joining the gymnasium because they find that they now leak urine with exercise or feel that there is a vaginal prolapse. Many of the exercises and gymnasium machines are designed for those without risk of pelvic floor problems,” Professor Judith Goh said.

As an essential guide for women at risk, Inside Out is an illustrated and professionally produced digital book (eBook) that provides females with:
• essential everyday understanding of a woman’s pelvic floor anatomy
• innovative and comprehensive exercise workouts with expert tips and safety guidelines
• understanding of potentially unsafe, popular classes (yoga/pilates/circuit) and gym exercises
• skills and understanding for effective abdominal and pelvic floor exercise
• stories from women who have overcome pelvic floor problems.

Inside Out: the essential women’s guide to pelvic support is designed to be user-friendly and readily accessible. Priced at US$19.95, the eBook can be purchased online only at: http://www.sunset-digital-books.com/health-fitness/pelvic-floor/index.html

Following the advice in this eBook, at-risk women can address their pelvic floor problems and exercise with confidence and control. In some cases, the symptoms can even be reversed.
