Diabetes And The Risk Of Major Health Issues

by Head Health Nutter on October 21, 2016

Diabetes is becoming more common. I’m pleased to present to you today’s guest article by blogger, Eric Johnson, to help inform us of the dangers of diabetes and how to prevent developing it.

To some people, diabetes is a disease that affects blood sugar and requires one to alter their diet. However, there’s much more to it than that, and because it does affect the blood–which flows to all parts of the body–it can lead to damage in just about any organ or part, including the eyes, gums, heart, and kidneys.

Diabetes can be caused by a number of things; for people living with Type 1, it’s an issue with the immune system, which attacks the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Without insulin, the body can’t break down the glucose in our blood. People with Type 1 diabetes require insulin medication daily in order to maintain their health.

Type 2 diabetes affects many people–nearly 30 million have been diagnosed with it in the U.S.–and involves the body being unable to process insulin correctly. For some–particularly in the early stages of the disease–the symptoms can be controlled by diet and exercise. But for others, diabetes requires medication and, if left untreated, can negatively affect the blood vessels throughout the body.

Damage to these blood vessels can cause problems with various organs, (including the skin), feet and lower legs, and the eyes and mouth due to circulation issues. Some of the most serious problems can occur when the heart gets involved; individuals with diabetes are at much higher risk of strokes and heart attacks than the general population, as well as heart disease and high blood pressure.

Because diabetes affects even the tiniest of blood vessels in the eyes and mouth, it’s important to see a doctor and dentist regularly and practice good oral hygiene. Gum deterioration can lead to heart disease, as well, so fighting decay is imperative.

It can be difficult to change your diet radically, especially if you’re not sure what to look for. Cutting back on refined sugars — which are found in everything from white rice to soda, fruit-flavored juice, and carb-heavy breads and sweets–can help lower your blood sugar dramatically. Stick with water, fiber-rich foods, and whole wheat when it comes to bread and pasta. Even spaghetti sauce and condiments like ketchup contain high amounts of sugar, so choose these carefully.

Eggs, meat and poultry, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables, and whole grains are the best bet for a diabetes-friendly diet. Avoid too many processed foods; even pre-packaged oatmeal has added sugar. Instead, grab a box of plain oats and doctor them up with some honey, granola, and raisins.

Depending on how long you’ve had diabetes and what your blood sugar levels are, it may be acceptable to dampen your cravings for sweets with sugar-free candy or even fiber bars that have a bit of chocolate in them. Ask your doctor what his thoughts are first. It could be that easing away from chocolate and sweets will be less difficult than quitting cold-turkey, especially since sugar is addictive.

Diabetes is a disease that can be manageable for many, but the problems arise when people don’t take the initiative to eat better, get more exercise, or see the doctor regularly. When you take the necessary precautions, you greatly increase your chances of living a long and healthy life.

How to Develop Organizational Skills & Become More Productive

by Head Health Nutter on October 17, 2016

Who doesn’t want to do more in less time? We all have a ton of things to do and while we want them done, we also want to have our free time to play! Keep reading today’s article by blogger Kate Simpson for a tons of tips in how to be more organized and productive so we can lead more balanced lives.

Take a look online and you will see plenty of hokum about productivity and organization. You will see figures such as how 30% of your day is wasted looking for misplaced items. This may be true for blind jugglers, but most people suffer from macro-productivity problems rather than micro-issue problems. For that reason, here are a few fundamental changes you should make to hone your organizational skills and become more productive.

Employee Out of OrderPlanning Pays the Piper

Even the hardest skeptics have to admit that more gets done in 24 hours if a day is planned out. Even if a plan doesn’t work, a worker is more productive because he or she is more aware of the time and what needs to be done. People are easily able to spin their wheels all day without getting much done and still feel like they have had a hard day and productive day. People that promote via social media will tell you that waste a lot of time if they do not start work with a plan (especially since social media is such a sneaky time vampire). The mistake that most people make is to create incentive plans because behaviorists have proved it only creates temporary compliance. Create simple plans full of targets and deadlines without punishments or rewards, and you will find yourself becoming more productive as the day goes on.

Start Earlier Rather Than Later

Not only are people that start early happier and healthier, they are also more productive. There is a lot of talk about people staying up later if they are intelligent, but there is no genuine scientific proof that staying up late means you are more intelligent, but there is proof that starting earlier makes you more productive. If you start earlier, you will also be more tired at night, which means you may get a better night’s sleep at a reasonable hour. Let the others believe that staying up late means they are more intelligent, meanwhile, you can be productive, organized, and you can snag that promotion before your competitors are still in their Cookie Monster slippers.

Track Your Time and Analyze Your Performance

Later in the article, you will find two tools that will help you track your time. If you wish to become more organized and more productive, you need to figure out where you are getting it wrong and where you are getting it right. Before you patch the leak in the boat, you need to figure out where the water is coming in.

If you log your productive time correctly without cheating and without missing sessions, you may figure out why you are more productive at some times and not at others. If you discover that you are unproductive during a certain time of the day, then you may use one of the stop clock tools listed mentioned on the “Online Stop clock" website and give yourself time limits. Giving yourself a time limit may help push you a little harder so that you are not as unproductive.

Be Creative – In Other Words – Cheat!

There are no links to scientific studies under this header because it is a personal tip. Cheating can be used as a productivity tool. Yes, it shifts the work to other people sometimes, and it sometimes it doesn’t work, and it is not a great long-term solution… but sometimes it is a massive time saver and productivity tool.

For example, you have a new client visiting your office, but your office is a mess because you told the cleaner not to work in your office until you have re-installed your shelves. Now, you could spend the day fixing up your office and miss out on a day’s worth of productive work. Or, you could ask a clean and well-organized co-worker if you can borrow his or her office and pretend to the client that it is yours.

For example, you have an unimportant written task and an important written task. If you do not complete the unimportant written task, then the issuer will be upset. You may spend your time on the important task and you may outsource the unimportant written task to another person or another company. The person that issued the important task will never know, and you avoid having to send him or her a muffin basket as an apology.

Handy Tools for Writers and Office Workers

Online Stop Clock

This website is amazing because it is filled with every type of stop clock you could ever wish for. You can use them online, or you can save the tool itself (not the software or app) on your desktop and open it with a web browser offline. Time yourself and have it ding when your task should be finished, or set up a clock that lets you know what task is next and how long you have for it. You can even set a clock that shows how much you are earning per hour, so you can see how much of your productive time you are using and how much you are wasting.


Outsource your work to another person if you cannot complete it yourself. Even if you can finish yourself, it may be more productive to allow an expert to complete your work because an expert can do it better, faster, and/or cheaper. The Assignment Masters team is full of academics who are able to produce well-researched and credible content very quickly.

Rescue Time or Toggl

Both are time tracking tools, and both are massively overpriced, but both have a free option that may be worth your while checking out. They allow you to record how much time you spend on different tasks and log the time. If you use the tool religiously, you are able to see which days you are the most productive, what times you are the most productive, and you may analyze your performance to help root out any productivity problems you have.

5 Juicing Mistakes You Must Avoid

by Head Health Nutter on October 10, 2016

Have you heard about all the health benefits to juicing? Are you already into or getting ready to juice? If so, you may really appreciate today’s guest article by Mauricio Prinzlau. Keep reading to avoid any potential juicing mistakes and reap the most benefits from juicing.

Juicing seems like a convenient solution for people who are burdened with excessive work pressure and deadlines. A quick and scrumptious breakfast option, a glass of fresh fruit juice keeps you charged up all day long!

Juicing has its own fair share of dos and don’ts. Please have a look at 5 mistakes which are very common.

1. Do: Proper Juicing RecipesCouple Blending

Juicing is not just about blending different fruits and vegetables and drinking the concoction it involves systematic planning and proper recipes. If done the right way, it can really boost your immunity and help increase your longevity, but juicing comes with its own set of rules, and not following them can lead to some very unpleasant consequences. For instance, you might start gaining weight or suffer from some other painful side-affects. Read on to know more about the common juicing mistakes and how to avoid them.

2. Don’t: Adding loads of fruits

Rich in glucose, fructose and other natural sweeteners fruits are a popular choice among people when it comes to juicing. And while fructose is necessary, excess of it can be really harmful for the body, especially the liver. Adding fruits can really enhance the taste of the otherwise bland juice full of green veggies and other healthy stuff, but what one fails to realise is that an excess of fruits can drastically lower the nutritional content as well. That doesn’t mean you compromise on the taste though, but remember too much of a good thing can sometimes be harmful.

3. Don’t: Drinking it all down at once

I’ve seen that most people simply dump the entire contents of the glass down their throats at once. That is not the correct way. It needs some time if you want to enjoy your glass of juice in the morning. Swirl the contents inside your mouth savouring the taste before swallowing it, this enhances digestion and gives your body the time required for absorbing the nutrients. You can use a transparent glass to keep looking at the quantity. You’d feel the difference yourself. You’ll get maximum results.

4. Don’t: Repeating the same fruits and vegetables over and over:

Replete in many vitamins and minerals, vegetables such as spinach, cabbages, carrots, beetroots, kale and bitter gourd are considered the healthiest options for juicing. These veggies are high on antioxidants and low on calories, thus cleansing the body and preventing many deadly diseases. They also are very good in fiber, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, etc., as well. Consuming similar fruits and vegetables every day is not only boring but impractical as well. Variety is the spice of life, try different recipes and ingredients to enhance the nutritional content of your juice.

5. Avoid Being gullible to the many artificial brands in the market:

In order to maximize their profits many brands out there trick innocent customers by offering harmful chemicals, artificial flavours and preservatives under the guise of popular brands, that they claim are “100% natural fresh and organic". Reality check: they’re not. Better that you get a blender instead for juicing fresh fruits and vegetables at your home. Compare the different types of juicers out there and buy one that best suits your needs.

To conclude, I’d suggest to start juicing today. It’s a great way to maintain a healthy life. Buy a good juicer and this will make it easier for you to try out different recipes.

Dealing with Detox Headaches

by Head Health Nutter on October 7, 2016

Are you planning a fall detox to help recoup from the summer partying? Then you’ll love today’s article by guest blogger, Henry Kingston, who shares with us the low-down on detox headaches and natural remedies for them!

Going on a detox spree requires you to be both intrinsically and extrinsically motivated as it requires a lot of patience to resist your cravings and not give in to your rumbling tummy. You need to train your thoughts and condition your mind to stay away from unhealthy foods or drinks and also deal with the after-effects that come with it.

Do not go overboard with your detox as it may develop into mild to severe headaches depending upon the intensity of your detox. It is never a wise option to start something and then leave it mid-way as it may have more negative repercussions rather than benefiting the person in the long run.

MigraineWhy do detox headaches generate?

Detoxification is like fasting that tells you to stay away from the food and drinks of your choice and this abstinence may lead to chronic headaches that need to be taken care of. During the detoxification process, your body cells release toxins that have long been accumulating inside them. As your bloodstream gets polluted with these harmful toxins the result is often a debilitating headache.

However, the intensity with which your headache escalates depends on the method of cleansing, the toxicity of the toxin and the way your body reacts when encountered with that toxin. Your detox headache may be confused with other types of headache so be sure to consult your physician.

There is a direct relationship between detoxing and the emergence of headaches that usually occurs in the first few days after starting your diet particularly, for people who have taken this initiative for the first time. Your body needs to come to terms with the changes it is undergoing and therefore it may react in the form of giving you tension headaches, cluster headaches or a possible migraine attacks. Your headache could be as minor as lasting for a few minutes or may go on for hours.

Remedies for your detox headache

The most immediate and outright remedy to cure your headache is using massage therapy. The logic behind it is that improves your blood flow to the brain, easing the tension and physical or neurological pressure. Furthermore, there are several things that you could take up to soothe your pounding headache, usually those associated with the sudden cut down in food and narrowing down of your appetite.

However you can at least tone down your headache or make it vanish before it becomes several hours long.

  • Sleep is a miraculous cure to headaches. Ensuring that you get proper sleep can shut your mind off from the perplexities of life. Take power naps and rest whenever you get time. You need to understand the struggles of your body and help it cope with the stimuli that you have induced.
  • Simply sweat it out by doing cardio exercise. Find natural cures to your detox headache.
  • Load yourself up with lots of water to help your body effectively tackle the body’s situation to expel toxins. Adding lemon to luke warm water can serve as the perfect detoxifying drink.
  • Use ice as an effective remedy to cut pain. The coldness of the ice reduces the swelling in the vessels that’s creating pressure on the brain nerves, curbing muscle contraction.
  • Listen to what your body has to tell you and do not be rigid in your principles. If your headache is killing you then you need to relax and go easy on your detox.
  • Do not create hindrance in the detoxification process by taking any external medication for your headache.

The fact that you are experiencing headaches is a sign that your efforts to detoxify are finally bearing fruit, so do not stress over it, in fact take it as a positive signal and continue your detoxification process proudly and with determination.

How to Positively Affect Your Brain with Writing

by Head Health Nutter on October 4, 2016

Did you know that writing with pen and paper has benefits? I didn’t either until I read today’s article by guest blogger, Rachel Bartee. Keep reading for why it’s a good idea to purchase a stack of pens and a notepad!

Writing is not something you do just because you’re expected to submit a report, article, or anything else at school or work. It’s time to put this activity into new perspective: as an investment in your intellectual growth.

In our digital era, the practice of writing seems to have changed, not necessarily in a positive direction. When you want to write something, you simply look for information online and you paraphrase it to compose something that expresses your own opinions. The genuine practice of writing differs from that routine.

Research Proves It: Writing Makes You Smarter and More Creative

When people write down the ideas that come from deep within, the process activates a broad network of regions in the brain, which work together in a symbiosis. Researchers from the University of Greifswald in Germany found that the brain became very active during the creative process of writing. During copywriting, the brain did not show such an activity.

This leads us to a conclusion: it’s important to maintain a regular writing practice in order to support the creative processes in the brain. But, what kind of practice are you supposed to commit to?

If you’re into research, here is another study for you to consider: researchers from UCLA found that students who took notes in longhand achieved much better results than the group of students who used laptops to take notes by typing.

At one point, the scientists told the students who used laptops not to transcribe the lectures word-by-word, but the students failed to show some creativity. This experiment showed that the computer led people to mindless processing. Ink-and-paper writing, on the other hand, supports brain processes beyond mere hearing and recording information.

Handwriting: the Ultimate Writing Exercise

There are several reasons for you to go back to the old-school pen-and-paper method:

  • Handwriting activates thinking processes. It makes everything easier to remember, since it stimulates the brain to think while writing.
  • Although it takes more time to write the same sentence in handwriting when compared to typing, you shouldn’t perceive that as a disadvantage. In fact, it’s the perfect time you need for thinking as you write. Researchers found that note-taking with a pen gave people a better grasp of the presentation they were listening to.
  • Handwriting keeps your brain sharp. Since you have the time to form a visual impression of the things you write by hand, it’s easier for your mind to process and memorize more data.
  • Handwriting is important for cognitive development. A 2012 study showed that handwriting had an important influence over the brain activation when compared to typing. It is crucial for the early letter processing that leads to successful reading.
  • Writing on paper develops your fine motor skills. People with beautiful handwriting have impressive control over their hands.
  • One of the greatest benefits of handwriting is its autosuggestion effect. Do you remember how Bart Simpson had to write autosuggestions on the chalkboard? Well, the technique works. When you repetitively write down sentences like “I will work harder" or “I will stay calm," the suggestions tend to stick into your subconscious levels.

From Practice to Progress

Here are few methods that will help you introduce handwriting practice back into your life:

  • Get a lovely notebook and a great pen. You can write about your daily experiences, but don’t limit your practice there. When you’re writing in cursive, you have an opportunity to explore the ideas, thoughts, and feelings deep inside. Give yourself a random topic for thinking and write something on it.
  • Write notes by hand! Evernote is such a lovely app; it allows you to capture your ideas at any moment of the day or night. Be honest, though: do you really remember the ideas you note down in the app? Do you review them from time to time? If you try writing them in a notepad, they will stick in your memory. Try this practice for a day and you’ll immediately notice a difference.
  • It’s not possible to write everything in cursive. However, you can still maintain a handwriting practice that will keep your memory sharp. As a writer for EduGeeks Club, I have to present my work in print or as an electronic document. Still, I spend at least 15 minutes a day writing random entries in a simple notebook. I write down quotes I found impressive, ideas I would like to work on, or deep thoughts about something that inspired me.
  • If you get stuck when typing projects, try going through the writer’s block with handwriting. Take your notebook and think: at what point did you get stuck? Write a brief review of everything you’ve written so far, and try to think of different alternatives for proceeding with the content. You can map out the goal different directions will guide you to. Then, choose one of those plans, and it will be easy for you to carry on.

Handwriting is not only for hipsters, you know. People have always been doing it not only because they didn’t have technology back then, but because they knew it was beneficial for their intellectual growth. We don’t want to lose that legacy. Get a nice notebook and start filling it page by page, every single day.

I’ve been trying ancient grains over the past few years and have been pleasantly surprised time and again! I cannot wait to try some of them mentioned in today’s article by guest blogger, Jon Baner.

Whether you’re an old hand at choosing the most nutritious foods for yourself and your family, or whether you’ve just started looking into how to create a more health-conscious diet, you’ve probably come across the term “ancient grains." If so, you may have some questions. Just what are ancient grains? Are they really more nutritious than more commonly used grains like wheat and oats? Do they have a place in a healthy, balanced diet?

If you’re asking these questions and trying to decide whether or not to include ancient grains in your diet, read on! This article will answer all the questions you have about ancient grains, and maybe even a few you didn’t even think to ask.

Closeup on pile of organic quinoa grain in bowlWhat are ancient grains? The term “ancient grains" (also called “heritage grains") refers to a group of grains and seeds that were first cultivated for use as foods in the ancient world. The Whole Grains Council takes the definition one step further by stipulating that these are grains that have remained “largely unchanged" over the past few hundred years.

Ancient grains originated all over the globe: Quinoa, for example, was first grown by the Incans in South America; farro once fed Rome’s mighty army of legionaries; and amaranth was a staple of the Aztec people. Some ancient grains can still be found in abundance in the modern diet and may sound familiar to you, millet, for example.

Others were nearly lost to history. Kamut, or khorasan wheat, was saved from obscurity when a U.S. airman sent a handful of seeds he found in Egypt home to his father who just happened to be a wheat farmer.

What health benefits might come from a diet rich in ancient grains? Ancient grains offer all the health benefits of more traditional whole grains. All whole grains, according to WebMD are “packed with nutrients." Their naturally occurring fiber, protein, antioxidants and B vitamins can help reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, weight gain and cancer.

Ancient grains bring all of these benefits “to the table” while also adding variety to our diets. Since most of the whole grains found in the average American diet come in the form of wheat, corn and oats, these grains can become over-represented. They can be found in as diverse a range of foods as catsup, canned soups, chili, salad dressing and soy sauce. Including ancient grains in your diet adds diversity. [click to continue…]

by Head Health Nutter on September 28, 2016

Who doesn’t have stress and anxiety? Check out today’s article by guest blogger, Santanu Majumdar, for some info on anxiety and natural remedies to alleviate it.

The best way you can make your body healthy is being physical and eating right. But even then, there are several complexities that persist in life to which many do not pay much attention. One among them is chronic anxiety which is known to be in every person. But, anxiety levels differ from person to person.

herbal-remedies-anxietyWhat does chronic anxiety mean?

Firstly, chronic anxiety is a condition which happens to exist in almost every person in varying degrees. The reason for this is the various challenges that each one in the population faces. There might be some condition in a person’s life to which he/she is not ready to deal with and when it happens, you are dumb struck. You remain shocked, not able to understand how to react and get through the situation.

At this stage, you face several biological reactions like increased heart palpitations, brain freezing and many more. Imagine you are watching a horror movie and suddenly you hear rustling outside the window. Imagine when you have a stage fear and out of nowhere you are called onto the stage without any prior preparation, you are asked to deliver a speech. What is going to be your reaction?

Of course everything in life happens for the first time but, here the discussion is about the unwanted and challenging situations which causes severe fear-based reactions, mentally and physically. Here, you need to reconcile fast and if you fail, you enter into the condition of chronic anxiety. [click to continue…]

Yes, There is a Need to Take Care of Our Veins

by Head Health Nutter on September 25, 2016

As a server in a restaurant for many years now, I’m well-aware of the changes in the veins in my legs. But, honestly, I haven’t really paid much attention to them because they don’t cause me pain. I’m happy to present today’s article by guest blogger, Mason Brown, who shares with us some information about our veins and their care.

Veins play a crucial part of our body as they are blood vessels that carry our blood towards the heart. Without them, our body will not be able to operate. It is very important that we take good care of our veins to avoid circulatory problems, pain, cardiovascular conditions and swelling. We need to be familiarized with different type of veins for us to be able to take care of it.

Yes, There is a Need to Take Care of Our VEINS IMAGE
Types of vein problems: Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

Varicose veins are veins under your skin that have become swollen, enlarged and twisted which often appear as red or blue in color. They are popularly known as appearing in the legs, but they can also occur in other parts of the body. They are more common on women than men, and mainly do not cause problems for most people except for being a cosmetic problem. Spider Veins on the other hand, are common among children and pregnant women and they are usually smaller, appear to be red, blue, and purple that also twist and turn.

They get their name from the red or blue veins which form a web which often starts to spread across your legs as we age.
