Five Things To Consider When Choosing Health Clubs Mon, 14 Dec 2015 12:22:37 +0000 Read more]]> Although most people buy them with the best of intentions, gym memberships often go underutilized, even unused. According to industry data, only 18 percent of members visit their health clubs on a regular basis. Why would anyone pay for something they rarely or never use? One possible explanation is that they don’t like the club they signed up for, but they can’t quit because they’re locked in a long-term contract. With that in mind, here are five things you should consider before selecting a gym.

The Staff

Ever wonder how some health clubs get away with charging cheap monthly fees? More often than not, they do this by cutting their staff to the bone. By keeping what is essentially a skeleton crew, these gyms can lower their membership fees to attract cost-conscious consumers. Of course, these cutbacks invariably come at a cost. With fewer employees to run the facility, users should not expect much personal attention. And while this might be just fine for the average gym rat, the new member who wants to learn how to use the equipment may have to take a number. If you fall into that camp, it’s best to look for a place that has a full staff of fitness experts, including certified trainers, instructors, and nutritionists.

Child Care Services

As we mentioned at the outset, most folks join gyms with the best of intentions-but sometimes life gets in the way. For members with small children, finding time for exercise can be all but impossible. A facility that offers childcare services is a simple solution to this common problem. Although some high-end clubs provide free child and daycare, most will charge extra fees by the hour.

Operating Hours

One of the biggest differences between competing clubs is their hours of operation. Some focus on the early crowd, opening long before dawn; while others cater to night owls, closing up when most folks are asleep. As a prospective member, it is important to find a facility whose hours work with your schedule. Trust us; you don’t need another excuse for not working out! A gym that has hours you have to rush to make pretty much guarantees you’ll rarely work up a sweat.


Even when members follow the rules and clean the equipment after each use, health clubs are sweaty places. If the gym does not have a dedicated, industrious cleaning staff, the place could get gross in a jiffy. On your initial visit, make sure you take a tour of the entire facility. Are there people cleaning up, mopping, and washing? If you don’t see a single member of the cleanup crew on a 20 or 30-minute visit, odds are they don’t make cleanliness a priority.

Locker Rooms

One fairly consistent difference between low and high-priced facilities is that the former will not offer many amenities in the locker room. More often than not, these gender-specific spaces will contain lockers and a bathroom. But in a higher-end gym, odds are there will be showers, a sauna, maybe even a Jacuzzi in the locker room. So if you want to relax a bit before or after your workout, you might consider a club with a full-service locker room.

Use these simple suggestions to find a great club that meets all of your needs

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: Symptoms and Treatments Tue, 10 Mar 2015 13:09:20 +0000 Read more]]>

Spinal stenosis is a condition affecting the nerves in the lower portion of the back. The word stenosis is of Greek origin, meaning to choke. In essence, this explains what is happening to the nerves (the nerves are compressed). Lumbar spinal stenosis is most commonly associated with sciatica, characterized by numbness and/or tingling of the nerves from the lower back into the buttocks and legs.

Symptoms of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Suffering from this condition can be quite painful, debilitating even. With more activity, the symptoms and pain can worsen, causing the patient to decrease physical activity. Some of the typical symptoms are:

Numbness in legs

Numbness in buttocks

Tingling feeling in legs

Tingling feeling in buttocks

Lower back pain

What Causes Lumbar Spinal Stenosis?

In many cases, this condition is simply a reality of aging. As we get older, our joints may deteriorate, causing arthritis. This degeneration can cause weight transfer as the body adjusts itself to the deteriorating joints, putting more and more pressure on the facet joints and narrowing the openings where nerves pass. The result of which is direct pressure on the nerves, causing the symptoms mentioned above.

Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Treatments

Surgery is an obvious option but can be invasive. Techniques are dramatically different from even a decade ago, but this surgery is still considered invasive and can require significant recovery time and physical therapy. The surgery consists of an incision of up to five inches along the midline of the back. The doctor will then “approach the spine.” Once the doctor gains access to the facet joints, he or she will trim the joints to create more room for the nerves, alleviating the pressure.

For those not wishing to have surgery, there are non-surgical methods to deal with this problem. The first recommendation may be to modify your current activities to alleviate the pressure on these joints. For instance, walking with the assistance of a cane might help. There are also exercises and stretches that can be prescribed by a doctor or physical therapist (in most cases, this “therapy” will be prescribed prior to any surgery). An Inversion table is another great options to try!

This condition may also be managed with medication. Doctors will often prescribe anti-inflammatory medications and/or steroid injections. Again, these treatments may be required prior to any surgical procedure. In some cases, spinal manipulation with a chiropractor can help alleviate the pain. While not proven to be a long-term solution, acupuncture has offered some temporary relief to some patients.

Joint Pains? Try Eating Crushed Egg Shells Thu, 05 Feb 2015 12:29:59 +0000 Read more]]>

You’re probably in the habit of throwing away your eggshells, right? Well, perhaps after you read this you’ll want to save some. As we age the body is less able to produce GLUCOSAMINE, which decreases joint inflammation, cushion joints against impact and assists with cartilage repair. Eggshell membranes contain this glucosamine, as well as other beneficial substances for joint health. In eggshell membranes we find HYALURONIC ACID, which helps to absorb shock and promotes joint elasticity. Eggshell membranes also contain CHONDROITIN that promotes cartilage elasticity and fights enzymes that damage joints and last but not least COLLAGEN, which is a protein found in connective tissue.

This is a natural and affordable remedy that is guaranteed to work. Add to this regular soft exercise and appropriate nutrition to reduce inflammation and you’re well on your way to feel that much younger as you are able to move your body without severe debilitating pain accompanied with moaning and groaning.

In a few words your diet should be free of meat, if possible more chicken and fish, better still a vegetarian diet. Eat lots of green vegetables: Avocados, cabbage, celery, cucumber, kale, spinach, broccoli, green salads, on a daily basis, and lots of fruits. Eat raw food or juice the vegis and fruits. Minimize your intake of coffee and black tea, try cereal coffee and herb teas instead; avoid champagne, white wine, and cigarettes all of which promote acidity; red wine is fine. No sugar. Believe me its all a matter of habit and very doable.

Here’s how you prepare your eggshells, also known for CALCIUM content by the way. One half of a teaspoon of powdered eggshells contain about 400 mgs of absorbable calcium. Calcium as you know is responsible for your bone health. So this recipe will also be beneficial for you if you suffer from arthritis, gout neck and back pains.

· Collect organic eggshells.

· Boil them in water about five minutes to remove bacteria. Make sure that all the eggshells are fully submerged in the hot water.

· Heat the oven to about 200 degrees.

· Place the eggshells on a cooking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes until they are crisp.

· Remove from oven and cool.

· Grind the eggshells in a grinder or by hand to fine powder.

To make sure that I get my health share of all the God given natural remedies that exist for us without bothering about how they taste, I have acquired the habit of sprinkling a ½ teaspoon full of ground flaxseed powder, the wonder food for heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer; a ½ tea spoon of raw gold millet for healthy hair growth, a secret recipe I received from my family doctor; plus a ½ teaspoon of eggshell powder, on top of all my salads, yoghurts, desserts and everything else where I think it would blend with the taste. I make sure that all ingredients are organic.

What can I say, I like to be in charge of my own health, as much as I possibly can and when I look around me at people my age I am convinced I am on the right track. You can never start too early to take responsibility for your own health, in fact the earlier you start the healthier and happier you will be as you age. Having said that, I might add that it is also never too late to start, you will feel immediate results. Teeter Hang Ups might be helpful as well.

Benefits Of Using Spinal Stretch Tue, 10 Jan 2012 12:51:50 +0000 Read more]]> Lower back pain has always been a problem among many people. Different treatments and devices have been used to alleviate this pain that is mostly caused by the Earth’s gravity. The latest among these devices is the spinal stretch.

Spinal stretch is a device designed to alleviate lower back pain by means of spinal decompression. This device works by stretching the lower back, relieving the spine tension caused by daily activity such as sitting and walking, allowing the spinal discs to thicken by absorbing moisture, and provides enough padding on the vertebrae.

Spinal stretch benefits include stretching the lumbar spine by pulling it with approximately 40% of the body weight. This reduces pressure on the spinal discs and spinal nerves, which causes lower back and leg pain. Improvement in the alignment of the lumbar vertebrae is also one of spinal stretch benefits, as well as relief from herniated discs, sciatica, muscle spasms and scoliosis.

The spinal stretch is very portable and easy to carry, weighing only at about 4 lbs, so you can bring it along and use it anywhere conveniently. It can be used while watching TV or reading a book. And, most of all, all you need is a floor, and you are good to go.
