We’ve probably all experienced a sensation of ringing our ears...a brief, steady, high-pitched sound that seems to come from inside our ears and we might even use an old wives’ tale saying to comment that someone is talking about us. While most people experience this phenomenon a few times a year, for others, a much more profound and chronic condition plagues them. It’s a disorder called tinnitus. Despite being one of the more common medical conditions, it often baffles medical specialists. Due to its complexity, there is rarely a straightforward treatment.

In the season of holiday celebrations, food tends to be a front and center focus. For people with eating disorders, this time of year can be especially unnerving. Eating disorders cause distorted thinking as it relates to the individual’s own body image, coupled with a great desire to lose weight. Bulimia Nervosa is one such disorder where sufferers indulge in overeating that is followed by purging through self-induced vomiting, use of laxatives, diuretics, enemas, extreme exercise and/or fasting.

It’s been long believed that there is a corresponding concern that tooth and gum health is indicative of heart health. This is due to the fact that inflammation is a significant problem of each disease. Plaque, whether on teeth or in arteries, is an advancement of inflammation itself. Also a common denominator for both diseases is bacteria. The most regularly found bacteria in dental plaque can, technically, make its way into the blood stream and travel through the arteries.

Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers in the United States, and getting screened beginning at a certain age is of utmost importance.

Resistance can be a beneficial thing when it comes to exercising with weights or standing up for yourself or someone else when it relates to bullying or outright injustice.
