A Fat-Loss Solution for Trouble-Areas
(http://ow.ly/UqHS30lByjP)

Even those of us who eat right and exercise regularly find that we develop "problem areas," or fatty deposits that won't respond to conventional fat-reduction methods. SculpSure is an innovative, no-needles procedure designed specifically to treat stubborn fat areas that won't go away no matter how much you work out. The technology inside SculpSure heats up fat cells and kills them – up to 24% in a given area – and your body then begins to naturally excrete the dead fat cells over the following weeks.

Problems in the Bedroom? The Root Cause Might Be Your Blood Pressure
(http://ow.ly/WO3c30lByjO)

When we think of our blood pressure being too high, we tend to think of things like high stress or poor diet choices or not getting enough exercise as the culprit. When we think of erectile dysfunction, some individuals may attribute it to a mental issue, but the truth is that hypertension and erectile dysfunction have more to do with one another than most people realize. Erectile dysfunction is most commonly caused by a condition called atherosclerosis, which is a narrowing of the blood vessels. This narrowing makes it difficult to get and maintain an erection, and high blood pressure can exacerbate the issue. Make sure you're getting your blood pressure regularly checked so as to avoid further complications.

How Do My Hormones Affect My Weight?
(http://ow.ly/Om8i30lByjN)

When you think of hormones, you probably think of all the wild chemicals running amuck in a teenager's body that cause all sorts of changes (remember puberty?). However, hormones affect much more than just the sound of your voice in your early teenage years. Hormones like cortisol and testosterone regulate our hunger and can influence how fat is stored on the body. This means that for some individuals, weight gain may be partly due to a hormonal imbalance. Hormone replacement therapy offers ways to correct these levels so your body can become more efficient at losing weight, and you can try a hormone-harmonizing plan found on the link above.

What Is Tai Chi, And Can It Help People With Arthritis?
(http://ow.ly/8D2y30lByjK)

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese martial art, a physical activity that evolved from a form of self-defense, that includes gently moving your body in a controlled manner. Tai chi is a great choice of exercise for people suffering with joint pain such as arthritis because of its low impact on the body. Additionally, many individuals who take tai chi do so for health reasons, whether it's to strengthen their muscles and get better balance or to ease the pain of joints and increase their range of motion.

Does Eating Right Mean I Can't Eat the Foods I Like?
(http://ow.ly/d41N30lByjH)

Good nutrition is important not just to lose weight, but to support your bodily health with nutrients and minerals that keep you and your family strong and disease-free! Of course, eating healthier doesn't mean abandoning all your favorite foods and eating salads all the time: A balanced diet includes foods you enjoy with foods that are good for you. If you don't like kale, you don't have to eat kale; alternatives like chard, baby spinach, and even broccoli offer many of the same nutritional properties and might be more versatile in the food you eat every day.

What is Body Contouring? How is it Different from Weight Loss?
(http://ow.ly/FuAx30kZ3N2)

Achieving that "hour-glass" isn't as simple as drinking a fruit smoothie every morning. In fact, there are multiple ways to achieve a slimmer body shape, and it depends mostly on the current physical state of the individual. Weight loss will always be one of our top choices to get and stay healthy, and we offer customized plans for everyone regardless of their goals. Body contouring is different, however. Individuals who have specific areas they would like to get treated may find that SculpSure can offer them the results they want. To see if SculpSure is for you, schedule a consultation with your doctor.

Do I Need to Be An Athlete to Be Healthy?
(http://ow.ly/N5pq30kZ3N1)

Each body is different: some of us have allergies that others embrace, and some of us have rounder or thinner natural body shapes than others. This means that your overall health isn't dictated strictly by the number on the scale, but by the lifestyle choices you make every day. These include things like what you typically eat for lunch, how many steps you might get in a day, your stress level following a day of work, and so on. By focusing on consistent, healthy choices rather than a specific body shape, you can find the balance of a healthier, happier life. Ask your doctor about simple steps you can take to get on a journey to better health.

Why You Need to Get Your Heart Pumping to Make it Work Better
(http://ow.ly/j2w630kZ3N0)

Your heart never takes a break. It is always beating, moving essential nutrients all throughout your body and keeping your brain alert and working. Because of this astounding reality, it's important to keep your heart working as efficiently as possible, and one of the best ways to do that is by exercising. Exercise does get your heart rate up, but in the long run, healthier individuals' hearts beat fewer times than overweight individuals, and this is because of cardiovascular training. Your heart is a muscle, and for it to work more efficiently, it needs to be worked and exercised. Aerobic activities are super effective for this goal.
