How to prevent eye damages from tanning bedsWritten by Guido Stiehle
While most people think tanning beds are completely safe, truth is that there are two issues to consider with indoor tanning. First, indoor tanning can lead to skin cancer and you can experience eye damage from tanning beds. The key in both cases is to make wise choices and take appropriate measures to ensure you are safe when using a tanning bed.
Keep in mind that tanning beds are big business - so big that about $2 billions dollars a year is spent by people wanting to get a dark, golden tan. One of main problems seen in tanning industry is that too many are so interested in money that they make exaggerated claims just to get business. The problem is that obviously, people are being put at risk and have no idea. Therefore, remember that tanning beds and eye damage can go hand-in-hand.
Now, to avoid both skin and eye damage from tanning beds, I want to give you some easy to follow instructions. First, always visit a reputable tanning salon that uses quality beds, disinfects them carefully after each person, changes out bad bulbs, and monitors amount of time people use beds. It can be far too tempting to go with a cheaply priced salon but in this case, you do not want to skimp on quality.
Color Therapy and its effect on health and attitudeWritten by Joseph Then
Color is perhaps one of most wonderful experiences that we take for granted. Take a look around. Color is everywhere, surrounding and embracing us. We interpret life as much through color as we do through shape, texture and sound.
Colors affects our daily life in many ways. For example: - The red light at traffic catches our attention and signals danger. - We feel refresh when we visit green pastures - We feel relax when we visit blue seas - A dark room (black color) gives us a feeling of mystery and fear - A painted white room gives us a feeling of newness and cleanliness
If color has an effect on our lives, what therapeutic effect will it have on patients?
Color Therapy is a holistic and non-invasive therapy that involves use of colors for treating various physical ailments and emotional disturbances. Color Therapy uses a set of principles to create harmonious color and color combinations for healing. Color Therapists believe that each organ and body system has its own characteristic energy, and disorders can be healed by applying color of corresponding energy, either to whole body or to organ concerned.
Colors are visible light energy of certain wavelengths. Photoreceptors in retina, called cones, translate this energy into colors. The retina contains three kinds of cones: one for blue, one for green, and one for red. We perceive other colors by combining these colors.
