So what do we do when our animals can’t stomach their dog food any longer? What does it mean when they are getting sick from kibble?  Everything else looks fine according to the veterinarian, yet a bland diet may be recommended she said. So that belies the question, what is good for my dog to eat, and what would not be good to feed my beloved canine?

At this point I was determined not to go back to the kibble. Kibble was first developed in 1945 by Purina. It has been shown to be a problem for animals over that time, and some people do believe it leads to animals having various illnesses such as cancer. Research from the University of Helsinki would say an affirmative to that statement...

General

The hair extensions market is inundated with many different styles, brands, and types. With hundreds of online hair extension stores and companies, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when making any purchasing decisions.

Why topical nail fungus (onychomycosis) treatment needs a device

Penetration

For the medication to penetrate and reach the infection through nail keratin (which absorbs water and repels water insoluble drugs) the treatment must be at least partially water soluble.

Companioa is a Caregiver’s New Best Friend

Anti-Aging, Diseases, General

There’s a caregiver crisis out there that almost no one is talking about.

According to the California Master Plan for Aging, recently released by the California Dept. of Aging, nearly five million Californians are unpaid family caregivers, helping their parents, spouses, and friends who need assistance with everyday tasks to live well in their homes and communities. Of these, almost 1.7 million are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia

Those caregiver numbers will only increase alongside the growing number of aging Baby Boomers and Gen Xers. By 2030, 10.8 million Californians will be an older adult (60+), making up one-quarter of the state’s population – and many of those individuals will need caregiving help.

Yet, more often than not, care...

General, Health and Wellness, Supplements, Weight Loss

Though most tea contains less caffeine than coffee, even a little bit seems to be able to boost your metabolism to burn calories. In green tea, it gets an able assist from antioxidants known as catechins, says Healthline.

Green tea’s secret catechin weapon is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which prevents the production of an enzyme that breaks down the fat-burning hormone norepinephrine...

Face Mask Sensor to Detect COVID-19

Diseases, General, Good products - Bad products

Our breath holds a multitude of biomarkers, including potentially those indicating the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. Those infected with the virus are prone to exhale proteases, enzymes that speed up the breakdown of proteins, related to the new virus. This has led researchers at University of California, San Diego to work on developing a wearable sensor that can be attached to masks to detect the presence of these proteases and therefore the COVID-19 virus.

“In many ways, masks are the perfect ‘wearable’ sensor for our current world,” said Jesse Jokerst, professor of nanoengineering at UC San Diego, who is the lead researcher of this project, in a press release...

Remarkable Benefits of Collagen-Peptides

Anti-Aging, Beauty, General, Good products - Bad products

Perhaps you just want to have beautiful skin or see fewer wrinkles in the mirror. One way that movie stars like Jennifer Aniston maintains her beautiful skin is through collagen peptides. One reason is because that collagen is a major component of skin and plays a role in strengthening skin. Collagen may benefit elasticity giving your skin some bounce back. It also is important to hydrate your skin and collagen does just that. Another beauty tip that I share with Jennifer Aniston is the use of hyaluronic acid. The product that I love of hers is Aveeno Absolutely Ageless restorative night cream. I’ve found great results with this product as well. In my case it visually stopped the progression of  wrinkles before the jar was even gone; although similar results may vary...

Spudtacular Healthy Potato Recipes

Weight Loss

Are you a potato lover? The truth is potatoes get a bad rap but they actually offer many wonderful nutrients that can make them a great addition to a healthy diet. They’re packed with vitamin B6, vitamin C and fiber, says Healthline. Plus, they are a great source of potassium. Make those potatoes sweet potatoes, and you’ve got even more vitamin C, B6 and fiber, plus an abundance of vitamin A. Despite being nutritious, those health benefits can quickly become negated when potato recipes are fried or prepared with butter, full-fat sour cream or cheese. For those reasons you might want to consider an air fryer. That’s the best way to still enjoy the taste of the deep-fried foods that you love without having to cook in fattening oils...
