5 Ways to Know a Good Eye Specialist

How do I know the best eye specialist for my eye treatment? I decided to write a post on the different ways to know a very good eye specialist just because a friend of mine almost lost his sight when he encountered a fake or quack eye doctor for his astigmatism treatments. The eyes are the chief organ in the body apart from the brain which controls all the activities of the body. The eye is the only organ of vision in the body that helps us to see things around us. And the best way to take care of our body must start from the eyes. 



An optician is the name of the eye specialist that helps in the treatment of eyes diseases, cure to eyes defect or general matters of the eyes. Either young or old, or in the case of eye defect, we will definitely see an optician but the big question here is that "how do we know the best eye specialists" which is explained as you read on with this post.

Eye Specialist

You can know the best eye specialist or an optician through the following ideas: 


1. Recommendation: if you have problems with your eyes or you have some eyes diseases or defect such as shortsightedness, cataracts, astigmatism or you noticed you can see clearly, then you need a very good eye doctor which is best selected by recommendation from your doctor. The doctor is in the best position to recommend an eye specialist based on the doctors examination and test on your eyes.


2. Care: the best eye doctors are the caring and careful types. I got to know this when a female optician was testing my eyes and she was caring and careful to the extent that i was happy with the professional ways she handles the eye examination. I think this is an important way to know the best eye specialist or optician.


3. Modern Facilities
: the office of a good eye specialist or  the eye clinic should have modern facilities for eye treatments or eye surgery. Modern eye tools and equipment should be one of your criteria in selecting your eye specialist. This you can observe simply by looking round on your next eye appointment date by your doctor or optician.



4. Certification: this is also a way of knowing or identifying the best eye specialist or an optician based on his certificates, professional qualification and awards. All these are usually placed on the table of any doctor or any specialist while some people still make a duplicate of their certificates posted on the wall just to let people know that they are not quacks but they attended school and that they are expert of their field.

5. Past results
: Past result of the eye specialist should also be something we need to consider. This can be gotten through word of mouth, asking people who once visit the specialist, people who had successful eye treatments from the eye specialist or you can equally search on Google about the specialist to know if he is really good in his eye treatments and surgery.

In conclusion, all the points stated above should be considered so as to choose or select the best eye doctor for your eyes. The eyes are delicate, don’t just consult any eye specialist if he or she is not recommended by your doctor, if he or she doesn’t have successful past result or some of his certificate or license is not displayed in the office for everyone to see and the eye specialist must be the type that is caring and careful when handling the eyes for treatments or surgery.

8 Best Exercises for Stroke Recovery

In our previous post or update, we discussed about the various ways to get recovered of stroke very fast which I believe you must have learn some ideas on this is treating the stroke or getting a quick recovery which makes you get back to normal in walking, talking and body balance as quick as possible. But today, we will be discussing the best exercises that help in stroke recovery which I believe you will also learn a lot from it as well.



What are the exercises for stroke recovery?
When someone suffers a stroke, there is a blockage of blood from the brain to other part of the body, it’s not the end of life for such person or patient but there are some exercises that make people recover fast from stroke which we will be describing as you read on with this post.


The best exercises for stroke recovery which is efficient and fast includes;


1.  Walking: One of the best exercises that work fast for stroke recovery based on my experience with stroke victims is walking. Recent research claims that walking is the best exercise in the world which doesn’t only work for weight loss but also work fast for people who had stroke and recovering from it. Walking is easy, cheap and can be done at home, in the compound or on the street. Because stroke is caused as a result of blockage of the transport vessels from the brain, heart and other part of the body but when someone recovering from stroke do some minutes of walking every day, the blood vessels gradually go back into operation and blood is circulated to other part of the body and every paralyzed body part are recovered gradually or with time. 

Stroke Recovery

2.  Cycling: This is another exercise I recommend for people recovering from stroke because it has proven to be very effective and fast for recovery of paralysis like stroke. Cycling is a good exercise which can be done at home using fitness equipment like the electrical or manually controlled cycling machine. I think this is common is most homes these days and if you have anybody suffering from stroke, you can include a gradual exercise of this and later increase it for the stroke patient, with time, blood will be circulated around the body and the stroke symptoms vanishes fast.


3. Stretching: this is another good exercise for stroke recovery which can be very effective especially when the hand or the leg is paralyzed. I got to know this when a close person to me had stroke. We consult a physiotherapist who gave us a hand stretcher device because the hand was paralyzed but as soon as this woman start to use this hand stretcher, she soon move her hands and the arteries and veins in that region began to work along with the muscles and since then, she has moving the hand as if nothing happened. Any stroke patient can also get this device and do some stretching which I believe is effective for stroke. 


4.  Light Jogging: After stroke treatments, the doctors will also recommend some exercises for you that will speed up the recovery process which light jogging is part of this exercise. Because the body is recovering from paralysis, it may be hard to do some jogging but you can do light jogging without putting so much energy and it still work. Do this few times per day and I bet you that you will experience a speedy recovery process of the stroke.


5. Yoga: Yoga is also a very good and effective for people who suffers stroke, people who are undergoing some stroke therapy for fast recovery. Yoga involves stretching the body into different directions and for people who really don’t know much about yoga, you can search through Google videos or YouTube for more information about this. 



6. Standing exercise: stroke victims are advised not to sit for too long on a sit but walking around or standing exercise is preferred for fast recovery. Standing is also a form of exercise which helps in circulation of blood from the heart to other part of the body but it must be done in moderation, not for too long for people recovering from stroke. 

7. Speed walking: Another good exercise that work best for stroke recovery based on my experience with stroke victims is speed walking. Recent research claims that speed walking is also one of the best exercises in the world which doesn’t only work for weight loss but also work fast for victims of stroke and recovering from it. Speed Walking is also easy, cheap and can also be done at home, in the compound or on the street. Because stroke is caused as a result of blockage of the transport vessels from the brain, heart and other part of the body but when someone recovering from stroke do some minutes of speed walking every day, the blood vessels like the arteries, veins, muscles etc gradually starts operation and blood is circulated to other part of the body and every paralyzed body part are recovered gradually or with time.

8. Sitting with leg straight:  Lastly, it makes a lot of sense for stroke victims to sit straight on the chair and not in a bent position or sleeping position. The sitting posture for people recovering from stroke also matters a lot but when they sit straight on a chair balancing their back on the chair, there is no cause to worry about fall or injuries.

10 Fastest ways to recover from a Stroke

What are the fastest ways to recover from a Stroke? I will like to share my candid health tips and ideas on various things to do so as to recover from stroke as fast as possible due to the fact that I singly support my uncle who has stroke sometimes ago and he recovered very fast from the stroke and now, he look fine without anyone knowing he once has stroke. You also or anyone you know can also have a speedy recovery from stroke using the ideas we will be sharing on this articles.



What is a stroke? Stroke is a condition where there is partial or total paralysis of some part of the body due to inability of the brain to send signals and messages to other part of the body. This also affects circulation of blood from the heart to other part of the body due to inability of the brain to function on that area. It happens when the blood pressure rises above the normal which affect the brain and cause this paralysis.


Immediately some is been attacked by this paralysis called stroke, there are various things to do after a stroke which gives a fast recovery for the victim to stay normal with all the body functioning properly. People recovering from stroke can use the stroke treatments which includes;


1. Proper Care: one of the things or conditions that can make someone have a fast recovery of a stroke is to have a proper care. People who have stroke should be properly taking care of during and after the stroke. This can be inform of sitting around the person, making the stroke victim feel loved, giving food at regular time, giving water and assisting the stroke patient to move round or go to the toilet at when due. All these are common things that make people who have stroke recover very fast from the stroke.

Stroke

2. Consult the doctor: There is no shortcut to a faster way to recover from stroke without seeing a doctor or cardiologist because the doctor is in the best position to recommend a good physiotherapist that will ensure the body muscles and veins and exercise to go back to normal, the doctor also knows the best drugs that can cure the stroke and what the stroke patients to do that will reduce or stabilize the blood pressure.


3.  Stroke Exercises
: what I have seen as the fastest way to recover from a stroke is to exercise the body by stretching, walking or by light jogging or moving around the house or neighborhood. If you see any stroke patients walking along the street, don’t think the family or the doctor is bad but for the man or woman to walk down the street multiple time per day helps to improve circulation of blood to the affected areas through the veins and arteries which are formerly blocked and has led to paralysis of the hand or leg. So, exercise is a fast way to recover from stroke and I recommend anyone suffering from stroke should use exercise as a mean to recover fast and get back to the normal state of health.


4.  Be Happy: Happy people are healthy people but this still work for people suffering from other diseases as well. For any man or woman suffering from stroke to recover very fast, people should make such person happy, make him or her watch comedy series because happiness easily drop the blood pressure when its high. So, one of the best stroke treatments or therapy for anyone is to be happy and feel loved just like I have said earlier.


5. Avoid Salt and Sugar: you can also get a fast recovery of a stroke simply by eating less or avoiding salt and sugar consumption at that critical time. Too much of salt is bad for the heart because it contains sodium which when accumulated in the body may cause the blood pressure to be high and may lead to hypertension or stroke but for people who need to recover fast, they should be given less of salt so that the circulatory organs can work properly for faster result on stroke.


6.  Avoid fatty foods
: a stroke patient or victim can also get a fast recovery of the stroke simply by eating less or avoiding fatty foods like snacks, junks, fried foods at that critical time. Too much of these fatty foods is bad for the heart because it can cause high cholesterol is bad for stroke, it can also reduce the body metabolism rate and blockage of transport materials through the blood vessels. 



7.  Use stroke drugs: When my uncle had stroke then, the doctor prescribed stroke treatments and drugs that really work fast and also make the recovery period faster. You should consult a physician for more information on drugs that are actually good for fast stroke recovery. 


8.  Fruits and Vegetables: I mentioned fresh foods the other time which I said is good for stroke recovery. After a stroke, it is advisable for stroke patients or victims to eat more fruits and vegetables. The fastest way for things to work out is to eat more fruits and vegetables which contain vitamins and minerals that builds the body, fight against diseases and increase the body digestion and metabolism rate for faster recovery of stroke.


9. Eat Snails: the best meal for both hypertension and stroke patients and people is to eat more of snails or drink it water. Snail meat or water contains active substances that reduce the blood pressure fast and not only that, it also helps to regulate the blood pressure counts. It does not contain fat, sugar, salt, cholesterol which makes it the best for stroke or for treatments of stroke.

10. Stretches:  After a stroke, I will recommend the stroke patients or victim find fitness equipment like hand and leg stretcher which wills helps contract the dead cells in the muscles, arteries and veins to get back to works. The more stretches a paralyzed person can do, the faster the rate of recovery. If it’s a hand paralysis, use a hand stretcher and it’s a leg paralysis, get a leg stretcher.


In conclusion, the fastest way to recover from stroke are discussed above, practice some of these ideas, do some stretches, do some exercises, reduce your salt intake, reduce sugar intake, consult your doctor, eat more snails, eat more fruits and vegetables, get proper care, be happy and do not forget to check your blood pressure regularly.

Does Bleaching Cream work for Stretch Marks?

I have written some health tips and ideas on stretch marks and how to remove stretch mark but a question came to me via inbox that "can bleach cream cure fat stretch mark? Which I believe you will learn one or two thing as you read on with this post that answers the question and also give possible solution to stretch mark cure and prevention.



What are fat stretch marks? These are line on the skin that shows on the body when someone is gaining excess fat. Stretch mark due to fat are not caused by bleaching cream but the skin stretches around cheat, armpit, thing, waist or butt when excess fat are accumulated around that region.

The answer; the best answer to the question on if bleaching cream can actually cure fat stretch mark is a capital 'NO' This responds was based on the questionnaire I sent to cosmetologist, dermatologist and doctors which all these experts all said no. Instead my doctor said a bleaching cream will even cause more stretch mark or other severe skin diseases when applied.

Stretch Marks?


This is because some bleaching cream can also cause stretch mark and it can prevent it. So according to research, the chemicals in bleaching cream really doesn't cure or treat stretch marks but if you have fat stretch marks in your body, I suggest you do the following which includes;

1. Reduce your fat; You don't need a bleaching cream to treat your fat stretch marks instead you should just find any possible ways of getting rid of the excess fat in your system. This includes eating fiber foods, doing cardio exercise and eating of fruits. You may also add other weight loss tips which works best for you and as you start the weight loss plan, the stretch marks gradually reduces compared to thinking that bleaching cream can cure it.

2. Do exercise; exercises like walking, stretching, running, jogging, yoga, etc all works well for weight loss which may also reduces stretch marks instead of bleaching cream. The best way to burn off excess fat or calories is to exercise the body through different workout method.

3. Change your diet; wrong diet like eating of fatty foods, junks, cholesterol foods, etc all add excess fat to Tue body which result to fat stretch mark but this can be cured and reduced if you change to foods that support weight loss.

4. Stretch mark cream; instead of thinking that bleaching cream will cure your fat stretch mark, it is better get a cream that really work for stretch marks which can be gotten online or in stores around you.

10 Nigerian Foods with High Calories

What are the Nigerian foods that are high in Calories? Sometimes ago, I posted an article on low calories Nigerian foods which I believe many people benefited from the post due to the nutritional and health benefit of these low calories foods but I think we need to know and identify some Nigerian foods that are high with calories so as to eat less of these foods or avoid them if you want to maintain your weight and live healthily.

High calories foods contain heavy substance like carbohydrate or other food recipes that gives energy but for people with low metabolism, it will make them grow fat which is not good for the health. Eating too much of high calories food can result to weight gain, high cholesterol, hypertension, obesity, and it produces fat that disrupt the activities or circulation of blood throughout the body due to excess calories of food in the body.

High calorie food takes time to digest and when you eat more, the body digestive system develops slow digestion or metabolism which is later converted to fat and an individual begins to get overweight which brings about some diseases but all these can be ignored if you eat less of these Nigerian high calorie foods.  So, the Nigerian foods with high calories include;
 

1) Yam: yam is one of the high calories foods eaten in Nigeria and people even eat this in huge quantity and they still claim they are not losing weight.  Yam belongs to classes of foods called the tuber crops with complex carbohydrates. It takes some time to get digested and it is recommended you eat few quantities if you want to maintain or lose weight. 
High Calories

2) Coco yam;  Just like I said for yam above, Coco yam is also one of the high calories foods eaten by Nigerian and people still eat this in huge amount and they still claim they are not losing weight.  Coco-yam belongs to classes of foods called the tuber crops with complex carbohydrates. It also takes some time for cocoyam gets digested and we recommended you eat this food in small quantities if you want to maintain or lose weight.


3)  Bread:  If we are talking about Nigerian foods with high calories, I think we need to mention bread because it is made of flour which is also a complex sugar which makes it high in calories and not only that, most bakers in Nigeria will mix their bread with fatty substance like industrial margarine and high amount of sugar. If you continue to eat this bread every time, you might end up adding extra weight which I believe is not healthy for the body. 


4)  Eba: Eba is a popular Nigerian food which is common among the Igbo and Yoruba tribe. It is a local food made from cassava which is a tuber crop with complex starch in it. It is served with vegetables or soup but excess intake of this food will make the body accumulate excess calories in the body which will make the body add more weight. 

5) Fufu: This is a local food high in calories, produced also from cassava after it’s been left to ferment for some days. It contains lot of starch, the food is thick and can make you full easily. Not only that, it cause weight gain when consumed excessively, this was the reason why fufu was named as one of the Nigerian food with high calories.


6. Pounded Yam: This food is thick, nutrition, give energy but it is high in calories. Pounded yam is gotten from yam after being cooked and pounded to a solid meal called pounded yam. People with slow metabolism rate not find the digestion of pounded easy thereby causing weight gain for them. If you want to stay slim and fit, you just need to eat this food served with vegetables or you only eat once in a while.


7. Potato: Either sweet potato or Irish potatoes are both high calories food which are healthy but can also make you grow fat when consumed in excess. This is due to the fact that potato is also a complex carbohydrate which takes time to digest because of its high calorie contents which are mainly starch.

8. Cake: Cake is good, delicious and recommended for children but adults that love to eat cake might begin to increase in weight because it contains high amount of flour (a polysaccharide), high amount of sugar, salt, margarine, chocolate, oil and many more in which the combination of these results to a high calorie foods.


9. Snacks: in the same way, snacks like doughnut, puff puff, egg roll, burger etc are also Nigerian foods with high calories which also could cause slow digestion, slow metabolism, weight gain, obesity, and blockage of blood vessels in adult but for children, they will burn it off.
 

In Conclusion, these foods listed and discussed above are few Nigerian foods with high calories but I will post more high calories Nigerian foods in our next update. Just keep your fingers cross and stay updated on the site. But know that food items like Yam, coco yam, potato, cassava, eba, pounded yam, snacks, cakes, fufu and bread are high calories foods.

How to have a younger looking skin

How do i have a youthful skin? Many times i ask myself if there is anything i can do to make my skin look neat, smooth and have a younger looking skin. I did my research and i came up with some ideas which are discussed as you read on with this post on how to have a younger skin.

What is younger skin? Younger skin is skin that is smooth, babyish, free of spots and wrinkles. As someone get older in age, so the body get older and the skin also get older with old age signs like wrinkles, spot and other discoloration.


The sure ways to make the skin look younger includes;
1. Healthy eating: i think one of the best way to have a younger looking skin or a smooth skin is to eat balance diet (which contains all classes of foods), fruits, vegetables and many more. All these foods contain vitamins and minerals that keep the skin younger and fresh.


2. Use moisturizer: one of the good ways to make the skin look younger is to use moisturizer cream on your skin or face which contains some mild chemicals that replaces dry cells and keep the skin from aging. Moisturizer cream removes dirt on the skin, heals dead cells and keeps the skin young and fresh.


younger looking

3. Plant oil: some plant oil are very  good for the skin and makes the skin have a youthful look. Some of these oil are coconut oil, peanut oil, peanut, almond oil etc which has vitamins, minerals and substance that helps revive the skin and make it have a smooth, fresh and younger look.


4. Toning cream: some toning cream also helps the skin have a very young and smother look because these creams contains chemicals that removes wrinkles, dirt, aging spot, burns etc from the skin surface and still make the skin light or toned.


5. Honey; honey is also a very good and active substance that makes the skin look neat and young, free of skin diseases like rashes, blemishes, and many more. I noticed this effect when a asked the secrets to the smooth skin of a woman who is 65yrs and above and she said, she only substitute honey for sugar. That means anytime she want to drink tea, she uses honey instead of sugar which is not even healthy for a woman at that age and she look fine and the skin is just as smooth as if she is her early 30s. So, you too can also do the same and help your skin look fine and beautiful.


6. Avoid sun: i noticed that the best way to have a smooth skin and younger looking skin is to avoid exposing your skin to excessive rays of the sun. The sun contains ultraviolet rays that makes the skin go older, it could lead to heat rash, rashes, wrinkles and many more. So, you can protect the skin from all of these by reducing you spend time indoor or under shade during hot sun just to protect the skin.

7. Eat fish: if you look at the lifestyle of people that eat fish compared to meat, you will notice that people that eat fish usually have smooth and younger skin than people who eat meat. It means fish contains substance that rejuvenates dead skin cells and making the skin have a younger look.
