Why Do You Need to Treat an Ear Infection?
(http://ow.ly/ALXr30kIccD)

Ear infections, which may be caused by either a virus or a bacteria, should be treated for several reasons.
1. In some cases, infections (if left untreated) can spread deeper into the ear
2. Your eardrum may rupture
3. Chronic ear infections can cause speech delays in children

5 Best Exercises for People with Diabetes
(http://ow.ly/aoYQ30kIccz)

Exercise is good for the human body; there is no denying that, and it can be especially good for individuals with diabetes. Exercise doesn't have to be boring, and it doesn't have to be just time logged on a treadmill. Exercise can be fun. Spend an hour practicing tai chi? Awesome. Finally taking that water aerobics class? Great. Taking your spouse out for a night of dancing? That counts too! Whatever exercise you choose to do, have fun doing it!

PS. Just be sure to talk to your doctor about starting a new exercise routine.

Are Antibiotics Always Needed for Ear Infections?
(http://ow.ly/N63A30kIccx)

Not necessarily. Sometimes the best approach is a "wait and see" approach. In fact, it is estimated that about 60% of children will have a marked decrease in pain within 24 hours, and many ear infections resolve on their own. However, that's not to say that antibiotics are off limits. There are some cases where antibiotics would be prescribed right away without "waiting and seeing." If your doctor advises the wait and see approach, you can make your child more comfortable with heating pads, ear drops, and sleeping upright. You can learn more about ear infections by clicking the link above.

Let's be honest; parents are superheroes in disguise. How they manage to raise children, go to work, and have a social life is one secret we won't discover until we become a parent ourselves. But, today is the day we recognize them for all their hard work. We appreciate you parents!

How will you show a parent you care today?

Can Pineapple Juice Help Soothe a Cough?
(http://ow.ly/vf1P30kIccu)

A glass of freshly squeezed pineapple juice won't cure your bronchitis but it may just soothe your cough. Pineapple juice contains the enzyme bromelain, and the research shows that bromelain reduces inflammation. Drinking fresh pineapple juice can also help thin out any mucous, which helps to make your cough more productive. Just be sure to grab real, 100% pineapple juice - not just the syrupy juice at the bottom of the canned pineapple.

8 Natural Ways to Prevent Yeast Infections
(http://ow.ly/nC8q30kIcco)

Fact: Your sleep schedule may affect how often you get yeast infections. When your body gets enough sleep, your immune system is better equipped to fight infection. According to an OBGYN from Every Day Health, "you need to get restful sleep in order for the body to do its jobs; like keep the acidity levels in the vagina stable and lower the rate at which vaginal yeast grows, both of which prevent infections." Other ways to prevent yeast infections include wearing breathable, cotton undies (no thongs!) and eating plenty of probiotic-rich foods.
