http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgMenopause can be such a challenge. There’s the whole “fuzzy brain” scenario—you know, that “where is my car/my purse/my mind” experience.

Or maybe it’s your body that’s pooping out. You know exercise would help but you just don’t have it in you to work out.

And let’s not even talk about your sex drive. Right now, you feel like you have a starring role in “Sexless in the City!” You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling and you don’t know where to find it!

Is this just part-and-parcel of the whole menopause/low estrogen issue or could something else be going on—like a case of low testosterone (Low “T”)?

Dr. Michael Krychman, Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine in Newport Beach California explains, “While estrogen is critical, it is my belief that there is interplay between lowered estrogen and lowered testosterone levels in women as they age.”

What you need to know about testosterone:

  • It’s part of our hormonal makeup.Not just a guy thing, the steroid hormone testosterone is produced in smaller amounts by body—one place is our ovaries—and is essential for muscle tone, a healthy libido, and strong bones.
  • Enter menopause abruptly and testosterone can nose-drive.While women can start experiencing low “T” during their menopausal journey, which may begin a decade earlier than when menstrual periods stop, a quick jump into “the change” can send testosterone levels plummeting. According to Dr. Krychman, “Many feel that surgical or abrupt menopause can cause more severe and abrupt symptomology rather than a gradual decline. It seems that when science or disease interferes with Mother Nature, she retaliates by sudden withdrawal and plunging testosterone.”
  • Low-T symptoms are wide-ranging. When T levels drop, women can experience depression, fatigue, weight gain, bone and muscle loss, and cognitive dysfunction. Then there is the whole “low libido” issue, which can be dramatically decreased. As for orgasms, if we have them, they can be more “ho-hum” than “woo hoo!” if our “T” level is down, according to a report from The North American Menopause Society.
  • Boosting testosterone levels can help. Supplementing with testosterone can benefit your heart, mood, energy, and bone and muscle health. Additionally, testosterone can sustain skin elasticity and tone, encourage heart health, boost libido, help prevent osteoporosis risks, decrease body fat and increase muscle strength.

You think you have low “T.” Now what?

  • First, rule out other medical problems by scheduling a visit with your health care professional, or menopause specialist. Underactive or overactive thyroid, for example, can also affect your energy level, libido and general physical health or well being.
  • Ask about testing your testosterone level. Typical tests will measure and calculate your total testosterone and “free” testosterone. (“Free” testosterone measures the active portion—the levels of bioavailable testosterone that is not bound by the blood proteins. Ranges vary between post-menopausal and premenopausal women, with a gradual decline as we age, says Dr. Krychman. However, he adds, “I advise treating symptoms, not lab values. A comprehensive assessment with a good differential is the rule. Testosterone supplementation is not the panacea. It is important to remember that this there is also approximately 40% placebo effect!”
  • Discuss treatment options. If your testosterone levels are below norm and you have the symptoms, your health care professional may suggest an “off-label use” of testosterone, with or without estrogen. (Why “off-label? Because the FDA has yet to approve any testosterone drug for women.)
    According to WebMD, oral testosterone (taken by mouth) is processed by the liver—which can result in a change of cholesterol levels. But that same effect doesn’t occur when testosterone is administered by skin patch, gel or cream (aka transdermal) or in pellet form (the size of a grain of rice) inserted under the skin. “What form to use depends on many facets including patient tolerability, patient price, side effects and clinician preference,” says Dr. Krychman.
  • Weigh the risks vs benefits with your health professional or menopause specialist. Dr. Krychman has a frank and candid conversation with his patients about the benefit versus the risk – safety and efficacy are always balanced, he states. Make sure you understand the pros and cons of the treatment options, and, once you start therapy, have regular blood work to keep track of your levels. It is important to monitor your blood count and lipid panel, coupled with testosterone levels.

Bottom line? Don’t blame Mama Estrogen for all your menopause miseries. Papa Testosterone could be partly responsible for your brain fog, exhaustion and crashing libido! Get the info you need to take charge of dealing with your symptoms. Evaluate the risks and benefits, to determine what is best for your body and your quality of life.

Suffering in silence is OUT. Reaching out is IN.

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgTake a deep breath and relax! Nudity is more at this stage of life than just taking your clothes off…thankfully! Here are some suggestions for turning National Nude Day into something that will help you become more mindful, shed negative feelings about your body and enjoy the fact that now that you’re in the empty nester category, it’s time to leave the bedroom door open for when you really want to go au naturel!

Nudity and Menopause

Menopause usually translates into covering up rather than taking it off, but if you’re good with an itsy bitsy teeny-weeny bikini, then that’s good, too! Many women breathe a deep sigh of relief at this stage of the game and learn to ignore that airbrushed perfection on magazine covers touting the most perfect person in the world. We’ve got bigger and better things to think about!

So, next time you’re standing in line at the store gazing at those perfect 10’s on the cover, think about what a trusted friend your body has been to carry you this far. Appreciate it! Live in the present and get ready to spend your time…exactly as you please! Feel better, already?! Continue reading »

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgIf you’re looking for any excuse to indulge in chocolate without feeling post-pleasure guilt: you’re in luck! July 7th is National Chocolate Day and studies show this sweet indulgence is loaded with flavonoids and anti-oxidants known to open clogged arteries, keep heart disease at bay and even improve your mental acuity. What’s not to like?

Columbus Discovered America…and Chocolate!

When Christopher Columbus was offered a sip of chocolate drink or ‘xocoatl’ by the Aztecs, he didn’t like the taste, but Spanish conquistador Don Hernan Cortes not only loved the drink, he knew he had a valuable commodity on his hands and loaded his return ship with cacao beans. He was right: people loved the chocolate drink, but it was a pleasure afforded only the very rich. Eventually, the secret recipe got out and before long chocolate was all the rage in Europe and America.

Popular Food with Healthy Benefits

The popularity of chocolate has prompted hundreds of medical studies to examine the effects on the human body. Dark chocolate, containing at least 70% cacao, possesses seemingly magical powers in opening arteries, minimizing insulin resistance and reducing morbidity. And that’s just for starters.

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgYes, the Constitution gave us freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms (or, in our menopausal state, the right to bare arms).

But think about it. Are you emotionally free? Do you have freedom from a negative self-image? From a lowered sense of worth? Freedom from the word “can’t”?

If not, it’s time to free yourself from the negative chatter (both internal and external) that holds you back from doing what you want to do or simply being who you want to be.

You know what I mean. As women in the throes of perimenopause and menopause, we constantly have to filter out those subliminal messages that make us feel less than fabulous.

I am reminded of the record album (yes, that dates me and I’m proud of it!) and book titled Free to Be… You and Me by Marlo Thomas and Friends back in ’72. Although the overriding theme was gender neutrality — promoting individuality, tolerance, and comfort with one’s identity — a major message was that anyone can achieve anything. That’s a concept we can take to heart as women truly in the prime of our lives.

Our knee-jerk reaction is to blame the media, the entertainment industry and advertising campaigns that — while perhaps not blatantly disparaging older women — glorify youth and, by association, cast a negative light on the natural process of aging. Continue reading »

Anyone involved in the lawn care industry will know that the carburetor is an integral component of your mower, so it is of the utmost importance that it is kept running smoothly. Many of the most common ride on mower repair and maintenance tasks involve the carburetor, so it is important that you know what you are doing when issues arise. We also recommend that you consult your owner’s manual for specific safety precautions and instructions.

31387dadMower Carburetor Cleaning and Adjusting

Performing regular carburetor maintenance is a sure-fire way to save yourself money, headaches and hassle down the track. Keep in mind that most carburetor problems are due to blockages (dirt, varnish and fuel deposits). It’s incredibly easy for the main fuel jet to become blocked, but the good news is that this issue is also incredibly easy to repair. Undertaking regular carburetor maintenance will ensure that issues such as this do not occur often in the future.

To clean the main fuel jet (which is found in the carburetor’s fuel bowl nut), you will need some carburetor cleaner and compressed air. The cleaner will dissolve any deposits present in the carburetor and choke, whereas the compressed air will blow the loosened debris out of the engine. Cleaning can actually reduce your mower’s need for maintenance, repair and downtime, as well as improving how 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines start. Continue reading »

Have you been considering the use of promotional bags to market your business? If so, we are sure that you have a number of concerns regarding how successful these items are for marketing. The good news is that bags are actually quite an effective promotional item and there are a number of reasons for this (including public display, variety, cost effectiveness, usefulness and custom designs). We have outlined many of these reasons in this article, but there are plenty more that we are sure you will discover for yourself!

  • Public Display
    One of the great things about promotional bags is that they are constantly spreading the word about your business. You will receive maximum exposure, as your logo will be displayed to the world wherever the bags travel. Going grocery shopping, the daily commute to school or work, and going on holidays or for a day trip are all situations in which these items may be used (and displayed to the world).
  • Variety
    Another great thing about these bags is the wide array of types to choose from. The range at many companies often includes: backpacks, backsacks, bamboo, calico, conference and satchel, cooler, enviro, jute, laptop and sleeves, paper, PET, shoe, sports and duffle, toiletry, tote, wine, travel and luggage. This ensures that you find a type to suit the purpose of your business and that your recipients will enjoy.

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgMom probably told you to act like a lady, but did she ever tell you to eat like a lady? This breakthrough book does.

Men and women are different. Period. (We get periods; they don’t.)

So it makes sense that we gain — and lose — weight differently from men. That’s exactly what author Staness Jonekos emphasizes in her latest book, Eat Like a Woman.

Jonekos is not only an author, but also a women’s health and empowerment advocate and one of the original executive producers who launched Oprah Winfrey’s first network, Oxygen Media. She spent time researching these gender differences and pulled all this fabulous info together for us in Eat Like a Woman.

She teamed up with Dr. Marjorie Jenkins to medically review the Eat Like a Woman 3-Week 3-Step program. Dr. Jenkins refers to herself as a “womanologist” and is a 2013 Texas SuperDoc. She is a professor of medicine and associate dean for women in Health and Science at Texas Tech University Health Science Center, where she holds the J Avery “Janie” Rush Endowed Chair for Excellence in Women’s Health. She created the Laura W.

When it’s time to worry about elderly care, assisted living is one of the most common choices. So, what is an assisted living facility? It’s a housing facility that provides disabled and elderly residents, who aren’t able to live independently, with personal care, meals and other supportive services.

Assisted living facilities, in short, care for your elderly loved ones in ways that you might not be able to. This may be due to the demanding expectations from work or daily family life. Keep in mind, however, that not all assisted care facilities are equal.

Some provide lighter care, while others provide care for those who are bedridden and need more assistance. In such cases, some states may require a higher degree of licensing for a facility with more required care.

Assisted Living Homes VS Nursing Homes

People often confuse assisted living facilities with nursing homes. They are not the same. Here’s why.

  • Assisted living residents mostly live independently, but may require some help with daily activities. Nursing home patients require 24 hour care.
  • Most of the time, nursing home patients have a single or semi-private room. Assisted living residents typically have a studio, a one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment.

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgResearchers now know that women are 70% more likely to suffer from depression than man and menopause’s hormonal roller coaster can aggravate the problem. Experts say it’s time to slow down and realize that the mind-body connection is a powerful one. And, much as we hate to admit it—we’re not in charge of the universe—even though sometimes we like to think so!

Taking care of parents and kids while simultaneously chasing a paycheck wears you down. Stir in a few menopausal hormones and you can easily find yourself overwhelmed, stressed and depressed. However, psychiatrist Dr. Harry Croft, principal researcher at Clinical Trials of Texas, says learning to put yourself at the top of the list is critical to restoring a healthy balance.

“Women suffering from depression outnumber men by a two to one ratio and menopause can be the tipping point for seeking the help you need,” says Dr. Croft.

“Stress and menopause can make for an endless anxiety-riddled loop, requiring women to examine whether their current approach to managing their health is really working. For example, low estrogen can make you feel crummy and you won’t function as well. Throw in lack of sleep due to insomnia or waking in the middle of the night and boom—you’re super stressed,” explains Dr. Croft. Continue reading »

Why is food safety an important part of a health routine, especially after age 55?

  • Nutrition factors, medications, and the natural aging process can weaken the immune system.
  • A slower digestive system means bacteria such as Salmonella spends more time there.
  • Changes in the sense of smell and taste may make it easier to accidentally eat spoiled food. (However, not all dangerous food smells or tastes spoiled!)
  • Compared with their younger family members—older Americans are 10 to 100 times more likely to get a food-borne illness.

Safest Choice™ Eggs, pasteurized to eliminate the risk of Salmonella, are a convenient way to make safe, economical meals for breakfast and beyond. Pasteurization means peace of mind when you’re cooking. Continue reading »

Manage stress Live happy & healthy

Manage stress Live happy & healthy

Everyone in life comes across stressing situations at one time or another. It is essential that everyone be equipped with the necessary strategies for managing stress. This is because left on our own to control our life stress can be a slow killer.

One of the best ways of controlling stress is finding time for relaxation and having fun. It is recommendable to allocate time for rest and leisure activities in your daily schedule. Spend this time doing the things that make you happy and relaxed. It could be watching a comedy, taking a shower, chatting with a friend or many other things.

Adopt a healthy lifestyle

Adopting a healthy lifestyle is one of the ways of increasing your resistance to pressure. In order to be healthy, one should eat nutritious meals. Reducing the amount of caffeine and sugar in your diet leads to better sleep. Regular physical exercise plays a vital role in lowering the effects of stress. One should ensure that he/she gets enough sleep so as to allow the mind and the body to relax. It is not advisable to seek relief in alcohol and other drugs as their relief is temporary.

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgYou may feel like you’re going through perimenopause or menopause all alone, but if you’re married, your husband probably feels like he’s going through it with you! Every night you toss, turn and throw off the bed covers, is probably an eye opener for him. Literally. Every time you complain about hot flashes, he sweats it out. No doubt he’s been the brunt of your menopausal mood swings. And sex? It’s a good test of his memory.

So this Father’s Day promise hubby you’ll take care of yourself… to show how much your care for him.

Find excuses TO exercise

Exercise is important at any age. For women in the midst of perimenopause and menopause, however, exercise is more important than ever. If your ever-tightening waistband isn’t enough reason to get you moving, these facts should:

  • Exercise will help you sleep better at night.
  • Weight-bearing exercises help stave off osteoporosis.
  • Exercise can help improve your posture, giving you more confidence.
  • Exercise raises your metabolism, which can help shrink your expanding waistline.
  • According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, exercise can reduce stress and anxiety, improving your overall mood.
  • Yoga has been credited with improving sexual enjoyment, but any kind of exercise increases blood flow and can boost your libido.

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgThe days are longer, the temperatures warmer, the sky seems bluer. If — despite all this — your mood seems bluer, too, it’s probably because you dread donning a bathing suit for the first time this season.

Let’s face it, it’s inevitable. Like the changing of the seasons, during perimenopause and menopause our bodies change too (and not always for the better).

All is not lost (especially those pesky extra pounds). Seriously, you can either wallow in self-loathing or do something about it. Here are a few ways you can make the best of — and take control of — the situation:Find a swimsuit that’s flattering for your body. One size does not fit all. However, it doesn’t mean you’re relegated to a style of bathing suit your mother might wear. (That goes for the bathing cap and nose plugs, too.) You can find a swimsuit that’s flattering and fashionable. I love the Spanx swimsuits! They are brilliant! You also can camouflage a lot with a stylish cover-up.

  • Maintain good posture. Holding your head high, tummy in, shoulders back and tatas out projects an image of self-assurance… and makes you look taller and slimmer, too. Instead of flats, wear sandals with a bit of a heel to give you a longer, leaner look.
  • If you’re not already exercising on a regular basis, start NOW. Weight-bearing exercises are not only important to stave off osteoporosis, they tone your muscles. Flab is flab (not fab), whether you’ve got a slender physique or a little more meat on your bones.
  • Drink lots of water. During the summer months, it’s especially important to hydrate. If you’re spending time outdoors, don’t wait until you’re thirsty. Take a filled water bottle with you wherever you go. Sipping throughout the day is easier than chugging your daily intake all at once. Keeping hydrated will result in healthier skin and hair… and a more beautiful you. Ice-cold water will also cool you from the inside out when you’re experiencing a hot flash. Stay away from carbonated beverages, as they can cause bloating.

car-rental-france

I was finally going to Sydney and I was super excited. I had bought new summery clothes, matching accessories and even a new pair of sandals. The ticket to my latest holiday trip was a gift from my dad so I did not have to worry about getting one. The only thing left to do before my departure was the booking of a rental car. No one wants to restrict themselves to public transport in a foreign city. You never know the ways, the routes and the timings. To avoid the hassle, it is always necessary to get a personal rental car deal. This way one can move around without stressing out about finding the right bus or metro station. With a limited budget, I needed a good car at a minimum price. Getting an affordable car deal is not too hard if you look at the right places on the internet and know the right shortcuts but I will admit it can be frustrating at times. During my hunt for a rental car, I discovered many different new ways and tricks which have now made me an expert in bagging cheap car rental deals.

Online Sites                                                                                 

My search for affordable car deals started from the internet. The search engine Kayak helped me figure out which company had the best deals. Other helpful online agencies include Orbitz, Expedia, FairOair and Travelauto. All these online companies offer cars for rent at extremely competitive rates after negotiating with car rental companies. Anyone who is looking to directly interact with the service provider to seek additional information should check out Travelauto. Continue reading »

roofing_idealpergolasanddecks.com.auA pergola is a kind of structure that is usually attached to your dwelling and also helps in providing some kind of covering for the deck or even a patio. In a few cases, it is a kind of self standing building with huge entrance for open air, and it can even be used for several kinds of different purposes. Many home owners who generally put up their beautiful pergolas usually find out that they are not using them because they do not give the right type of protection from rain or sunlight. And that is the reason home owners are using different types of materials for the roofs of their pergolas which can provide protection from these kinds of environmental conditions. Many of these materials are often made up of fibers, metals, plastic and fabrics.

Using fiberglass for your pergolas

Either fiberglass or plastic is proven to be the best choice for the roof of your pergola. These materials are totally durable and can be good to have during extreme weather conditions, and they also offer you a more fool-proof pergola roofing choice than other types which you generally find in the market. Roofs that are made up of these materials are usually designed in such a manner that they have the capability to block the harmful UV rays from the sun and also help protect your house from heavy rain, but you must want your house to have sunlight coming into the rooms. It is really easy to find plastic panels and they are really inexpensive to buy and quite simple to cut in order to make it fit the area of your pergola roof.  Fiberglass may be hard to find, but it is a good choice because it is generally made up of recycled materials.

http://www.shmirshky.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Ellen_Dolgen_Menopause_Monday.jpgFor many women in their teens and twenties, seeking the perfect 10 of a tan used to be a full-time job on hot summer days. However, those of us going through menopause need only glance at the age spots on our hands to wish we had a ‘do over!’

Skin cancer incidence is up by an alarming rate and according to the Mayo Clinic, it has increased eight-fold overall in middle-aged women since 1970, with women in their late forties showing a marked increase in melanoma. That information has prompted studies of a menopausal hormonal connection to this disease with mixed results.

Spot Skin Cancer

First line of defense is you and the knowledge of your own body. It’s wise to spend one morning a month carefully looking at your skin armed with a hand mirror to see those hidden areas such as under your arms and behind your ears and even between your toes.
