Skinny Female Dog

Have you read the book Skinny Female Dog yet? (That’s not the real title, but I don’t like to cuss on blogs.) I laughed my way through it with advice like “All carbs are not created equal. There are two types: simple and complex. Simple carbohydrates suck and are as nutritionally beneficial as toilet paper.” The authors’ big tip throughout the book was to “use your head” when you make choices about eating. They are proponents of no meat and no dairy. I’m of the mindset that I need a little of those food groups for a well-balanced diet (my head says there’s something not quite right about a replacing meat and dairy with soymilk, soy “cheese,” soy “meat,” etc. – BUT that’s just me. The book has some great info in there and is worth the read.)

Moving on, the point I’m trying to make is that I visited the authors’ website the other day. Watch their Video Interview. I loved it. It took one of the author’s seven years to transform her eating habits. The other one – ten years. Their message is so clear and true: the goal is to eat well and do the best you can, but no one is perfect. It’s takes time to change your diet. Taste buds need to be retrained. Moving towards healthier foods is a progression. You give up what you can and don’t beat yourself up when you eat something less than ideal.  Š

Yoga Facial

I slouch too much.

At times – pecking away on my laptop, eating a meal, relaxing on the couch – I’ll catch myself and try to fix it.

Lately, I’ve noticed another habit I’ve developed over the years: frowning. Well, maybe not frowning exactly, but holding a tense face.

Opening the yoga practice, I am sitting with my legs crossed mid-shin. The teacher tells the class to close our eyes and place the back of our hands on our knees with our palms facing the ceiling. Then she tells us to relax our face.

“Relax your jaw,” she says.

“Relax the muscles around your eyes,” she continues.

“Relax the space between your brows . . . your eyelids . . . and even the skin underneath the eyelids.”

She tells the class that relaxing the face is one way to help quiet the brain.

As we continue the practice – sun salutations, standing poses, and core exercises – she gently reminds us about the muscles in our face. And every time it feels amazingly nice to relax them.Š

There are two types of bald men – those who willingly to have their hair cut short and those who unwillingly suffer from the condition as their issue is genetic in origin.  Male pattern baldness is a condition wherein men who have inherited the genetic trait develop hair loss that progresses into baldness over time.  The problem with this is that some men are particularly fond of their overall appearance with a full hair on their head; the types who are embarrassed about their appearance as they slowly grow bald.  Sadly, there is really nothing they can do as their condition is embedded in their genetic code.

Male pattern baldness has always been an issue for many men.  This is the reason why toupees have been invented.  Although there are many hair loss treatment products in the market that are currently being sold, none of them are really effective in treating the issue.  They more of like just delay the progression of the hair fall issue that occur.  This was in the past.  These days, the most effective way of treating male pattern baldness is through the use of Propecia.  What this hair loss treatment drug does is that it inhibits the creation of the hormone that is the root cause of the hair loss issue.

There are three factors required to trigger male pattern baldness – age, genes, and hormones.  What Propecia does is that it acts on the hormone trigger part wherein it prevents the creation of dihydrotestosterone, the hormone that makes the hair follicles grow thin.  Controlling the production of this hormone is actually very effective in stopping the progression of hair loss as the hair follicles are able to recover and grow back to being healthy.  Sadly, those hair follicles that have completely died from thinning can no longer be recovered.  Nevertheless, through the use of Propecia, you will be able to stop hair loss from progressing and thus not turn out becoming bald.
