An article in the Daily Mail refers a new study that comes to the conclusion that Homeopathy “is no better than a placebo”. The article mentions a recent Australian study where the impact and effect of homeopathic medicines and treatments had been looked at.
According to the study by the Australia’s National Medical Agency, homeopathy shows no beneficial effects whatsoever and is “no better than a placebo”.
The president of the Australian Medical Association Dr. Choong stated his opinion that “Homeopathy is not a science. It is not based in science.” He furthermore added that in a lot of cases homeopathy can be considered dangerous and can risk people’s lives.
Not unlike the alternative health therapies of acupuncture or acupressure, magnetic therapy is one of those holistic treatment methods that can help with the relief of various health conditions and problems. The advantage here is that magnetic therapy has no known side-effects and it is very easy and at the same time very affordable.
The most known form of magnetic therapy may be the use of magnetic jewellery. In this case, the beneficial magnetic fields are created by magnets that are attached to the jewellery.
Common forms of magnetic jewellery would be magnetic bracelets or armbands but you can also find pendants, charms and other types of magnetic jewellery today.
Similarly as is the case with acupressure, magnetic therapy means that certain points on the human body are stimulated for various beneficial effects. The only difference here is that in the case of magnetic therapy this stimulation happens with magnetic fields as opposed to acupuncture needles or applying pressure.
How sound is the theory behind magnetic therapy and its positive effects on our health?
It has been theorized that applying magnetic fields on the human body can influence the alignment of blood cells. It is generally assumed that the application of magnetic fields can improve the blood’s ability to carry oxygen to the body. Several studies have been conducted in the past where magnetic fields had been successfully applied and showed effective in the treatment of arthritis pains or pelvic pains. While the exact way how magnetic jewellery benefits our health may still be debated amongst some health professionals, its effectiveness is now proven.
If you are thinking about trying out magnetic jewellery for yourself, you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Magnetic bracelets and armbands are rather affordable and you will find them in numerous appealing designs and styles today.
Tech companies Cisco and Juniper suggest that the security vulnerability named Heartbleed is much more widespread and dangerous that initially thought. In an article by Time they say that the vulnerability may affect a lot more routers and systems in many companies.
Both companies are now checking their own equipment and devices and have alerted customers in regards to the security thread.
On Friday, the Department of Homeland Security stated that its systems are not affected by Heartbleed.
Mattresses come in several varieties today. The simplest form of mattress is the foam mattress. Those type of mattresses normally only consist of one block of foam without any special properties or health benefits. Since those mattresses do not offer any support they are more than questionable for long-term use. They can lead to back problems and other health issues. I would not recommend a simple foam mattress except as an emergency mattress to have around.
Memory Foam Mattress
A much better type of mattress is the spring mattress. Those are available in two variants.
There are simple spring mattresses where metal springs are embedded throughout the mattress and “pocket type” spring mattresses where each spring is embedded into a pocket within the mattress. The better quality mattresses are usually the pocket-type spring mattresses.
Memory foam mattresses are another type of mattress that can help with the prevention and relief of various health problems.
As compared to normal foam mattresses, memory foam mattresses can adapt to the human body’s shape. This means that those mattresses will not cause any pressure on the body. The sleeper will be able to lie straight with his or her spine aligned correctly. Less pressure on the body from the mattress will also promote better blood flow and circulation.
If you intend to get cheap mattresses today you should always do diligent research before you buy. A cheap mattress can be wasted money if the mattress is of pure quality and will lead to health problems down the road. On the other hand, you might be fortunate and get a quality cheap mattress from a reliable and reputable mattress and furniture vendor. Have the seller advice you in regards to the right mattress to get. They can tell you whether a spring mattress or memory foam mattress would be better for you. If you buy online, read customer reviews before you buy.
