HGH Or Human Growth Hormone, A GlimpseWritten by Travis
HGH is an abbreviation for term Human Growth Hormone which is a treatment for people who are severely behind in growth. It is mainly used for children, although there are many benefits associated with adults taking hormone as well. This hormone is produced by pituitary gland. While years ago it was necessary for hormone to be supplied from a pituitary gland, science has developed HGH that is synthetic and just as high quality.
HGH is a protein based hormone that helps with growth and production of cells. It has been shown to show significant improvements when injected into children who are severely behind in their growth. There are many advantages and very few and rarely occurring side effects. The hormone is injected into muscle or subcutaneous tissue. In most cases, injection is painless and done with same type of syringes used for insulin. In children, there are many different ways in which HGH works. It can help them to grow faster and they will have increased strength and better motor development as well. Body fat may lessen as a sign of development. Probably best benefit to this treatment is that children will emotionally and socially reap rewards as they grow and become more capable of meeting goals of children their age.
In adults, HGH can help in a number of ways as well. It can give enhanced energy and even strength. It can also improve bone density as well. Muscle mass increases may be at risk of adipose tissue, though. It is undetermined whether mortality of adults taking this hormone will be affected, though. A basic injection will be three injections per week. The doses are usually only 25% of what children receive. Many adults who experience human growth deficiency (the cause for needed HGH) do not get treatments that can benefit them for a number of reasons. First, cost is high and many insurance companies simply do not cover it. Or, they may fear injections or simply will refuse to go see a doctor.
Suffering from vaginal drynessWritten by Anonymous
Question : MY friend, who is 55, complains that her vagina is very dry, and that she is unable to have sex with her husband.
Answer : VAGINAL dryness refers to a lack of moisture of skin in vulva and vagina. It usually results from an oestrogen deficiency, which causes thinning, shrinking of tissues of vagina and decreased lubrication.
However, it is a natural condition and can affect all women over age of 18. Factors that may lead to oestrogen deficiency are pregnancy, childbirth, nursing, hysterectomy and use of fertility drugs. Emotional stress, rigorous exercise and fatigue can also cause vaginal dryness. About 10 to 40 per cent of women who've reached menopause suffer from vaginal dryness due to lower oestrogen levels.
The healthy vagina includes a small amount of bacteria and organisms. When vaginal balance is disrupted by overgrowth of these bacteria, another protective bacterium-lactobacilli is unable to perform its normal function. Sometimes sexual intercourse helps spread these anaerobic bacteria. Other things that can upset balance are antibiotics, diabetes, pregnancy, vaginal douching, wearing damp underwear, tight pants and synthetic pantyhose during hot weather, a poor diet and vaginal products (sprays, lubricants, steroids and birth control devices such as IUD).
A good urogenital health supplement to take is probiotics specially formulated for women's health. It helps to promote healthy vaginal flora. Look for a supplement that contains two clinically proven strains, Lactobacillus GR-1 and Lactobacillus RC-14 which have been shown in clinical trials to prevent urogenital problems in women.
