Rather sizeable fibroid and my recovery – Anne-Marie ’ s story
The post Rather sizeable fibroid and my recovery – Anne-Marie’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. I underwent an abdominal hysterectomy on 14th June this year having had problems for the last two years due to a rather sizeable fibroid – everything was taken out with the exception of my ovaries. There seems to be very little information available generally with the exception of what is provided through the Hysterectomy Association and the forums and information they provide which have proven invaluable and very reassuring. I was really quite anxious in the days leading up to the operation &...

Luteolin: How To Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
More than 100 women die of breast cancer in the U.S. every day. It's the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women. But in my opinion, many of those women really die of a tragic medical error. Let me explain… Millions of women in the U.S. have taken Big Pharma's hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Their doctors prescribe it to try to relieve the symptoms of menopause. Like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and weight gain. But what the drug companies try to pass off as hormones are actually synthetic concoctions. They are fake versions of the estrogen and progesterone that your body makes ...

TAH hysterctomy, large fibroid – Lisa ’ s story
Conclusion – I do not regret my decision to have a hysterectomy at all. For me, it was the right decision so far. I didn’t think the big lump that was very noticeable in my stomach was an issue as I was used to it but now I cannot feel that or my cervix (which was 2 inches above my belly button) it is lovely. I have, by no means, a flat stomach now but I hope with healthy eating and daily exercise the swelling will go down and I will regain feeling in my lower stomach. I think you have to expect a certain amount of pain and discomfort at the start and I would definitely recommend whatever pain relief you feel y...

CUNY researchers seek to improve welfare in captive birds of prey through olfactory enrichment
(The City University of New York) For the first time, researchers are exploring ways to improve welfare in captive birds of prey through olfactory enrichment -- or using scent cues to alleviate boredom and encourage species-appropriate behavior. A new study appearing in Zoo Biology found that birds of prey, which had learned to associate the presence of food with the scent of peppermint oil, interacted more with peppermint-scented 'sham' packages (i.e. without food) than unscented 'sham' packages.

I Gave Up Coffee For A Month -- And Here's What Happened
Photographed by Alice Gao. The idea to give up caffeine came to me when I was -- per usual -- up very late one night. I drink a lot of caffeinated beverages, and I started to wonder whether I might get more rest without it, and what it would be like to not have the nervous buzz of caffeine so frequently at my fingertips. Although Gilmore Girls tells me being hyper-caffeinated is a positive and quirky state, health professionals do not. I'm far from unique in my sleep-deprived, artificially energized norm. The vast majority of the population is living on less than adequate sleep, according to Christopher Drake, PhD, direc...

How to Make Something You Don't Really Enjoy a Habit
Something amazing happened this morning.

What's amazing isn't that I've done this once, but that I've been doing it for months. Even more amazing is that I love it.
