Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which you stop breathing for at least 10 seconds during each hour you sleep.
It occurs when your throat muscles relax and the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses and closes, blocking in the airway.
As with snoring, you won't know if you're experiencing sleep apnea. You'll wake up but won't know the difficulty you experienced while trying to breathe. Here's how to tell if you suffer from this dangerous sleep disorder…... ››› more
If you feel your muscles are losing their strength you must know that this doesn't necessarily mean you need more exercise. The latest research shows that muscle loss can also have a biological cause.
Regardless of your fitness level, muscle loss can occur when you least expect it. in fact, it even happens to r athletes like professional rugby players. A research conducted at the legendary Tufts University in Boston by Dr Irwin Rosenberg showed that everyone loses muscle at the exact same rate, from athletes to couch potatoes, no exceptions. We lose about 1% a year starting at the age of 45!... ››› more
In the past century, healthy eating has become more like a luxury rather than a necessity and a winning ticket for a healthy life. Think about it. These days, we're too busy to cook, we think eating healthy is too expensive, we don't exercise enough and we definitely lack sleep. Not to mention the amount of stress we put on our shoulders every minute of the day and the unhealthy sugary snack we chew on throughout the day.... ››› more
Since the dawn of time, people have never stopped believing that there is a strong connection between our mind, body health and the Universe around us.
Remember when you were a kid and every time you couldn't fall asleep your parents would tell you to start counting sheep? Mine used to tell to count to 100 but I only reached 20 because the more I counted the more awake I felt. Strange, isn't it? But I remember another thing that my grandma used to tell me when I couldn't sleep. She used to say that she could never sleep properly when it was a full moon. I didn't believe her for the longest time, , But one day I realised that I started feeling a bit too energised with every full moon. So I began to do some research and here's what I found.... ››› more
It's 6:00 a.m., another working day. The alarm goes off, you scrabble to find your clock, stop the alarm and try to get back to sleep. Five seconds later, it goes again. You've got no way out so you begin to crawl out of bed, force yourself to have a quick bite, put some cloths on in slow motion and start dragging yourself to work. You hate your job but you have no choice. There are a ton of bills that need to be paid - you desperately need your salary, even if the only thing you feel like doing is ... sleep.
Does this scenario look familiar to you? If so, then it's highly likely you are experiencing a particular type of stress: Job burnout.... ››› more

Our integrative doctor, Dr Craige Golding, revealed an astonishing new study that found a strong link between antibiotic use and breast cancer.
Given that breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer, and doctors have long prescribed and over-prescribed antibiotics for numerous conditions - from the flu to serious infections - it may shock you to learn that scientists first suggested there might be an antibiotic/breast cancer link more than 25 years ago!
You can't help but wonder: If women had been using natural forms of antibiotics all these years, would breast cancer stats have been lower?
Seems like antibiotics are doing more harm than good.
Here's what the research has to say...... ››› more
Since the late 70s, the Banish the Fat Revolution hit. And just about everything that contained fat went onto the “do not eat” list.
But just last year, Time Magazine had a swirl of butter on their front cover. And their article inside said “Eat Butter”.
This alone was a significant statement. But it was in more ways than one.
Here's why…... ››› more
A good few years ago, I started a job that, for all intents and purposes, was my dream job. It was my big break and I wasn't going to mess it up.
While I may not be the smartest or most gifted person, I have always earned my spot with my impressive work ethic.
So, I got in early, stayed late… When the job demanded more manpower, I worked weekends… All this while I obsessively worried about my performance and my future. And when that wasn't enough, I stepped it up some more!
Looking back, it's obvious that lifestyle wasn't sustainable. But I wore my workaholism like a badge of honour. As far I was concerned, I had a great job and I would work as hard as it took.
It wasn't until I was in the throes of a burnout that I realised what was happening.... ››› more
