Change Your Diet

VegetablesIf your daily diet consists of nothing but junk food and sugary drinks, then there’s going to be a need to change your diet. The burgers and chicken wings are great, and a beer or a soda will accompany them entirely, but at the same time, your body won’t thank you for this.
A poor diet of junk food and sugary drinks have been proven to certain diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and even depression. If you want to have a healthy lifestyle, consider changing your diet, start slowly, and soon you can completely change your entire diet.

Exercise

If you’re not doing much exercise, you have to squeeze in some of it to your schedule. The fun thing about exercise is that there are exercises for any problems, for example, Kegels are perfect if you feel like your vagina is loose, and yoga is another perfect choice if you don’t like heavy activities. Make sure to hydrate as well when you’re exercising. If you’re too busy working, make sure to take a break at least to stretch a minute or two every once a while, this will get the blood circulating to your body.

Lack of Sleep

RestIf you sacrifice sleep to watch your favorite series, you might have to think about it again. Lack of sleep is proven to crankiness and can lead to even more serious diseases such as heart disease and depression, so make sure to get enough sleep, especially when you don’t want your skin to sag.
Our tip is to steer clear of caffeine and try not to touch any electronics at least half an hour before you go to bed. Aromatherapy candles with lavender scent can also help as well.

Ways to Ease Your Foot Bunions

Bunions also known as hallux valgus is a defect of the base joint of the big toe. The actual cause of this defect is not yet known, and the imperfection causes the foot to rub against the shoes being worn. This causes foot pain and inflammation of the skin surrounding the area. It’s always recommended to wear good shoes in order to manage the symptom, but a surgery to correct the normally is also an option. A bunion is best described when the big toe is inclined towards the second toe resulting in a bump on the outward side and at the base of the big toe. This leads to the skin and the tissues at this location around this joint to become thick which might become reddened, puffed-up and painful. In some instances, the swollen area may result into a bursa which is a fluid-filled sac that is extremely painful.

The deformity causes the big toe bones to be pushed towards the direction of the smaller toes making the skin around the area rub against the shoes being worn causing pain. Bunions may be developed as a result of genetic predisposition, or it might be associated with joint complication for example rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Irrespective of the underlying cause, it is advisable to wear shoes that are not tight fitting or loosely fitting as these have a tendency of making the condition worse and more painful.

The symptoms associated with bunions include

  • Difficulty walking straight as a result of foot pain
  • Swelling and inflammation at the base of the toe that might end up being infected
  • Widening of the foot making it difficult to find the right size that fits
  • Arthritis at the toes
  • Deformation and displacement of the toes

Treatment for foot bunions

1. Wear good shoes

Wearing suitable footwear will not necessarily cure the deformity, but it goes a long way in easing the pain and discomfort.

2. Medication

Ingesting painkillers may minimize the pain and where the bunion develops as a result of other complication for example arthritis. It is advisable to use other medication as well. Antibiotics may also be prescribed in situations where the skin and tissues underlying the area become infected.


3. Surgery

A surgical operation may be carried out if observing good footwear wearing does not relieve the pain symptoms. Surgical operations are carried out to strengthen the joint so as to relieve pain and improve the appearance of the feet. The patient usually leaves the hospital within a day. The type of operation is dependent on how serious the bunion is, the shape of the foot and other factors e.g. presence of other diseases such as arthritis.
