    Tips For Getting A Good Night’s Sleep

    Following some of the helpful guidelines below can help you get a better night’s sleep:

    Set A Schedule
    Go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. This will help your body get used to a sleeping pattern. "Sleeping in" on the weekends can cause insomnia because it is interrupting the sleep cycle that your body is used to.

    Get Some Exercise
    Try to get 20 to 30 minutes of exercise no sooner than 6 hours before bedtime- any exercise just before bed may cause you not to sleep that well.

    Avoid Caffeine, Nicotine, and Alcohol
    Avoid things that contain any caffeine such as coffee, soda pop, teas, and candy. Smokers usually sleep very lightly at night and will wake up at the slightest noise, sometimes not being able to fall back asleep. The same goes for people that drink alcohol just before going to bed.

    Do Something Relaxing Before Going To Bed
    Doing something that relaxes you before bed is good such as a warm bath, reading a book, or watching your favorite TV show.

    Do Not Over Sleep
    Be sure to wake up and get out of bed at your normal time frame. Sleeping more hours than you are used to will throw off your sleep cycle and cause sleeping problems. It may cause you to not be tired at night and then go to bed later, thus resulting in sleeping in even later the next morning.

    Control Your Room Temperature
    Extreme cold or warmth can cause you to sleep poorly. Be sure to maintain a comfortable room temperature that won't aggravate you during the night. If you have a waterbed be sure to set the water temperature at a comfortable temperature as well.

    When It Is Time To See A Doctor

    If your sleeping problem persists for more than one month then it may be time to visit your family doctor. Your doctor will be able to give you advice for your particular needs and can prescribe stronger sleeping aides that are not available over the counter.

    Dietary supplements to treat Insomnia treatments are available online at eVitamins

    Weight Loss

    More Americans than ever are losing their battles with weight loss as the number of obese men and women in America has doubled in the past 30 years. Nearly 60% of Americans are overweight or obese today. Listening to all the weight loss methods and messages out there can confuse you and make you forget about the very important basics to keeping your weight down. If you are one of the many struggling to keep your stomach from overlapping your belt, this information might well be exactly what you’re looking for.

    Causes For Weight Gain

    It is very easy in this day and age to fall into a lot of habits that can contribute to that dreaded weight gain. Below are a few of the many reasons why so many Americans are becoming overweight:

    We are consuming 300 more calories per day then 20 years ago.

  • We are eating out at a greater frequency.
  • We are eating larger portions.
  • We make the mistake of believing that all low-fat foods are healthy and we can eat as much of them as we want.
  • And the big reason… we do not get enough exercise.

    Before heading out to the grocery store and loading up on low-fat, low-carb convenience foods, be sure to read the labels. Many low-fat, low-carb foods have more calories than the “normal” food.

    Weight Gain Prevention

    Physical activity is a big factor too. Approximately one third of Americans do not get enough physical exercise. Instead, we spend most of our time sitting at our computers, watching TV, driving instead of walking, taking the elevator instead of the stairs, or taking any other kind of short cut that allow us to work less. It is recommended that you get 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day such as a brisk walk or a bike ride.

    By sticking with the basic guidelines profiled above, weight loss and maintenance can be achieved, and with only a few minor changes to your lifestyle! There are no quick fixes or magic methods. Losing weight and keeping the pounds off does not come easy for many people. The idea of eating less and moving more should be the common approach.

  • Bad Breath

    A lot of things can cause bad breath whether it be from eating spicy foods, smoking cigarettes or drinking coffee or tea. One of the most common causes is the buildup of bacteria in your mouth, usually in the form of plaque which also is the main cause for gum disease. Some people believe that bad breath is caused from having a lot of yeast in your intestinal tract from baked food and cheeses. Bad breath can also be caused by tooth decay, nose or throat infections, and even stress.

    Treatment Of Bad Breath

    It is important to replace your toothbrush every month, as well as after any mouth infection that you may have had to help prevent any bacteria build up. You should also floss your teeth at least three times per week. Try to avoid commercial mouthwashes. Most of them contain nothing more than flavor, dye, and alcohol. Although they can initially destroy the bacteria and get rid of your bad breath, it is only temporary and the bacteria will return later in greater force.

    Here are some other things that may be helpful in fighting bad breath:

    Brushing
    You should try to brush your teeth after every meal. You may need to carry around a travel sized toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste. Make sure you brush your teeth, tongue, and gums for at least two minutes.

    Foods
    You should increase your fruit intake while decreasing foods that are high in sugar, alcohol, and vinegar.

    Helpful Supplements
    The following supplements will help you when fighting bad breath:

    Super Papaya Enzyme Plus - Good for taking after your meals.

    Vitamin C - You should consume 2000-6000 mg per day.
