Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 Certain risk factors may predispose a person to prostate cancer. These include: Age: Sixty percent of cases of prostate cancer arise in men over 65 years of age. The disease is rare in men under 40. Race or ethnicity: African-American men and Jamaican men of African ancestry are diagnosed with prostate cancer more often than are men of other races and ethnicities. Asian and Hispanic men are less likely to develop prostate cancer than are non-Hispanic white males. Family history: Prostate cancer can run in families. A man whose father or brother has or had prostate cancer is twice as likely to develop the disease. If several family members have had prostate cancer, and particularly if it was found at a young age in those relatives, the risk may be even higher. Nationality: Prostate cancer is more common in North America, Europe especially northwestern countries in Europe, the Caribbean, and Australia. It is less common in Asia, Africa, and South and Central America. Multiple factors, such as diet and lifestyle, may account for this. Genetic factors: Mutations in a portion of the DNA called the BRCA2 gene can increase a man's risk of getting prostate cancer, as well as other cancers. This same mutation in female family members may increase their risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer. However, very few cases of prostate cancer can be directly attributed to presently identifiable genetic changes. Other inherited genes associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer include: RNASEL, BRCA 2, DNA mismatch genes, and HoxB13. Other factors: Diets high in red meats and fatty foods and low in fruits and vegetables appear to be associated with a higher risk of developing prostate cancer. Obesity is also linked to a higher risk of the disease. Smoking, a history of sexually transmitted diseases, a history of prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), and a history of vasectomy have NOT been proven to play a role

Balanced Health Today Call Now 1(888)277-4980 There are many different causes of prostatitis. Some of them are related to the prostate but many of them come from problems completely unrelated to the prostate itself. That is why it is important to look at the patient and his lifestyle holistically to find out what is going on. We can divide up the myriad causes into two categories: • Bacterial prostatitis causes; and • Chronic nonbacterial prostatitis causes Bacterial prostatitis causes are related to bacterial infections. Bacteria are responsible for both acute and chronic types of bacterial prostatitis infections. Most commonly, Escherichia coli (E. coli) is responsible, but there are other types of bacteria that are involved as well. About 80% of acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis infections are caused by gram-negative bacteria such as E. coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Enterobacter, Enterococcus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Proteus mirabilis. The other 20% of bacterial prostatitis causes involve sexually transmitted diseases and can be harder to identify and culture. Nonbacterial causes of prostatitis are usually associated with chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). These cases make up 90 to 95% of all prostatitis sufferers. And it is estimated that about half of CPPS causes are due to problems with pelvic floor muscles or pelvic tension disorders. A patient’s lifestyle, including his sexual habits, can contribute to causes of this disorder as can diet, allergies, immune disorders, and environmental factors. Even the way one manages stress can cause pelvic tension, inflammation, and pain. Other medical problems present in the body or even complications from past surgeries or injuries can all contribute to chronic prostatitis causes. It may be challenging to determine the causes of your CPPS symptoms. That is why it is important to work with your doctor when diagnosing prostatitis to consider your lifestyle, diet, and habits.

The intrauterine device (IUD) is an effective contraceptive for many women. The copper-releasing IUD can be used for 10 years before replacement and is a good choice for women who cannot, or choose not to, use hormone-releasing contraceptives. However, some women experience an increase in menstrual blood loss and dysmenorrhea. The progestin-releasing IUD can be used for five years. It may reduce menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea, although some women have increased spotting and bleeding during the first months after insertion. The ideal candidates for IUD use are parous women in stable, monogamous relationships. Pregnancy, unexplained vaginal bleeding, and a lifestyle placing the woman at risk for sexually transmitted diseases are contraindications to IUD use. Insertion of the IUD can take place at any time during the menstrual cycle provided the woman is not pregnant. Before insertion, a bimanual examination and a sounding of the uterus are necessary to determine the uterus position and the depth of the uterine cavity. The IUD is inserted into the uterus according to individual protocols, with the threads cut at a length to allow the patient to check the device's position. Expulsion may occur with both types of IUDs.

Valid points as why women or men have it harder in life. Men: We have to face rejection. Even though it's the 21th century, girls still don't make the first move. We have to think about pick up lines. Women: Girls get hit on so many times a day by the ugly and classless guys. Women can't even ride the subway without the fear of being molested. Alot of times, crimes don't reported so it just slips by. Alot of girls are stalked and even raped. It's happens often but it's not noticed by the public. Alot of girls keep it private because they feel embarrassed to report it to the police/law enforcement. Men: On the first date, guys always have to pick up the girl, open the car door for her, pull the chair back and they men always have to pay for the first day Women: When girls get married, they have to cook, clean, do the laundry, take care of the kids and take care of the husband. Men: Guys have to worry about getting kicked in the balls(nuts). It's happens often and we get into a lot of pain. At the same time, women don't even have something sticking out of their pants. Women: Girls feel like they are getting kicked in the balls every month for 5 days straight. Men: Alot of females are looking for a guy with a college degree from a top tier ivy league university/college like Harvard, Brown, Yale, Colombia. Our occupation determines us and our social status. On top of that, women can hired based on their appearance(beauty). All women have to do is push up their and wear short skirts. Women: Women get paid a lot less for the same job that the men performs. The hourly wage/salary doesn't really compare. Men: Guys have to deal with guys on their periods. Some girls are full time PMS'ers(Premenstrual syndrome). Guys have to get into arguments/fights when girls are on their periods Women: Girls have to experience being on their period first hand. They have to bleed from their private part. While on their periods, they have to deal with cramps for five days. Men: Guys have to deal with getting a boner in public. It's embarrassing for to have to something lift from their pants in public with many people around. Guys have also worry about their penis/johnson/wang/piece. Women: Women have to be perfect. If they have small boobs/breast, they have to spend a lot of money to get bigger ones. If they have a small ass/behind, they have to spend more money on getting a bigger one. If the girls boobs or ass is to big, people end up calling them fake or fat/chubby. Men: It's in the man's nature to spread their seeds and deal with many STD's(sexually transmitted diseases). Women: If a women sleeps with a hundred dudes, she is considered the worst thing in the planet. She is considered a hooker, prositute, bitch,whore, tramp but if a guy sleep with a many women, they are considered the man, pimp, king, that dude, the man, stud. Men: Women are correct about the hardship about dealing with being pregnant. There is nothing harder in life that men have to deal with than women who have to deal with pregnancy. I was in sex education class at six grade and I saw a baby get born and blood was slipping out and I fainted. Women: We have to carry another human being in our stomach for almost a year. Women have to eat the correct way to take care of the child. After 9 months-1 year of suffering and panicking, a human starts kicking in their stomach and comes out of their vagina.

*******balancedhealthtoday****/ellagica.html A yeast infection, also known as candidiasis (pronounced: can-dih-die-uh-sis), is the name for a common infection caused by a yeast called candida albicans (a type of fungus). Yeast infections usually occur in warm, moist parts of the body, such as the mouth and moist areas of skin. When they cause an infection in the vagina, it is known as vulvovaginal candidiasis. Candida can overgrow for many reasons. Stress, pregnancy, and illnesses that affect the immune system may allow yeast to multiply, as can certain medicines. These include some birth control pills and steroids. Or if you're taking antibiotics, such as for strep throat, the antibiotics can kill "good" bacteria that also live in the body and normally keep the growth of candida in the vagina in check. Yeast also can flourish if a girl's blood sugar is high. Girls who have diabetes that isn't controlled are at a higher risk for yeast infections. Many girls find that yeast infections tend to show up right before they get their periods because of the hormonal changes that come with the menstrual cycle. Clothing (especially underwear) that is too tight or made of materials like nylon that trap heat and moisture might make yeast infections more likely because yeast can thrive in this type of environment. Using scented sanitary products can irritate the vagina, and douching can upset the healthy balance of bacteria in the vagina. Both can make yeast infections more likely. Yeast infections can happen to any girl, and they're not considered sexually transmitted infections — although they may be able to be spread from one sexual partner to the other. This is rare, though, and the partner of someone who has a yeast infection does not automatically have to be treated unless symptoms appear. A doctor won't be able to tell how you got a yeast infection, but will be able to tell you if you really have one and, if so, how to treat it. *******balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******balancedhealthtoday****/ellagica.html Bacterial vaginosis (BV), formerly known as nonspecific vaginosis, is the most common vaginal infection for those of reproductive age. It should be thought of as a problem related to the balance of bacteria in the vagina which may cause symptoms on and off for months or years. It is caused by the overgrowth of several bacteria in the vagina. Bacteria that cause BV include Gardnerella vaginalis, Mobiluncus and Mycoplasma hominis. It is normal to have a small amount of these bacteria in the vagina so it is only when there is an overgrowth that it’s considered to be BV. These bacteria do not cause permanent damage. How is it spread? BV is not considered a sexually transmitted infection (STI). While BV is not an STI, having sex can sometimes create the conditions where BV can develop. What are the symptoms? Approximately 50 per cent of people who get BV do not have any symptoms. For those that do, they may include a watery, grey or yellow vaginal discharge as well as changes in odour which may include a fishy smell. BV can also cause itching, irritation and soreness on the vagina and vulva (the outside genitals). What are the complications While BV is not an STI, it can still, in some cases, cause some complications. If you are pregnant and have BV, you may be more likely to have a pre-term birth or have a miscarriage. If you are having an abortion or any other gynecological surgery, there is a possible risk of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) if you have BV. Like any vaginal infection, having BV can also make it more likely to get infected with HIV if you have unprotected sex with someone who is HIV positive. BV has been linked with UTIs (urinary tract infections) and cervicitis (an infection of the cervix). *******balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html Symptoms of urinary tract infection The symptoms of urinary tract infections might differ based on sex, age and area of infection in the tract. Some people will have mild symptoms or no symptoms and will be able to get away from infection in about two to five days duration. Sometimes, the symptoms do not appear until the elders become weak and confused. But, most of the women will show the symptoms like • Sensation very often to urinate • Burning sensation or pain while urinating • Urine appears reddish or non-transparent, if blood is present • Bad smell in urine • Discomfort in the lower abdomen is seen • Bloated feeling • Sensations of filled bladder • Vaginal discharge is seen if the infection is present in urethra or if they have sexually transmitted disease Symptoms in men are • Urgency to urinate • Urinate many times • Dysuria • Pain in the rectum, testis, abdomen and penis • Those with sexually transmitted disease might have the discharge from penis which is pus like Symptoms in children are • Bloody urine • Fever • Vomiting • Pain in the abdomen • Sensation to urinate very urgently Symptoms in newborns and infants are • Hypothermia and fever • Poor feeding • Diarrhea • Vomiting • Jaundice Symptoms that are shown by the infection at the specific location of the tract • Dysuria is seen in urethral infection • Pus like liquid is drained off from the urethra in the case of sexually transmitted diseases • Supra pubic pain is the symptom seen in cystitis. This is not accompanied by fever • Flank pain and fever accompany the infections seen in ureter and kidney These specific symptoms may not be extremely specific, but will certainly help the doctor to identify to some extent the location of the infection in the urinary tract. Causes of urinary tract infection are • About 80 percent of urinary tract infections are caused by the bacterial strains like Escherichia coli. These bacteria usually live in the colon region. • Other than E. coli, there are other bacteria that can cause urinary tract infection like Pseudomonas, Proteus, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Staphylococcus, Mycoplasma, Serratia, Neisseria, and Chlamydia Sps. • These bacteria are found to be not causing urinary infections as often as E. coli causes it. • There are many fungi that cause urinary infections like Cryptococcus and Candida. • There are some parasites that cause urinary infections like Schistosoma and Trichomonas. • Majority of urinary tract infections are caused by E. coli. • Any blockage in passing of urine can also be the cause for infection in the urinary tract like kidney stones, enlarged prostate, abnormalities anatomically present and urethral strictures. • Women are said to be more susceptible to the infection in urinary tract as their urethra is very short and its exit is also very near to the anus and vagina from where pathogens might get transferred. • The people who have internal catheters also are at higher risk of getting the urinary infections. • Using conceptions like diaphragm, menopause, pregnancy sexual intercourse, holding the urgency to urinate, having more than one sexual partner are some reasons for spreading of infection. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/

*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html Urinary tract infections are caused as a result of a bacterium, Escherichia coli or E. coli, which enters the urinary tract. Bacteria enter through the opening of the urethra and then move into the urinary tract. An infection in the lower urinary tract is known as cystitis and the infection in the urethra is known as urethritis. Urinary tract infections are a combination of both these conditions. Holding back urine for too long is amongst the main reasons for urinary tract infections since the bladder is stretched beyond its capacity and the muscles become weak. Therefore, the weakened bladder has more difficulty in emptying itself which eventually leads to infections. Women are a lot more susceptible to urinary tract infections because they have a smaller urethra as compared to men and their urethral opening is closer to the vagina where the bacteria generally reside. Pregnancy also increases the risk of infection since the uterus puts a lot of pressure on the bladder. In men, an enlarged prostate, a bladder stone or a sexually transmitted disease such as gonorrhea are amongst the possible causes for urinary tract infections. Diabetes, intercourse, or menopause could also be some of the causes for urinary tract infections. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****
