Endometriosis, in which the lining that’s grown inside the uterus each month also mistakenly grows outside the uterus, can cause debilitating pain that affects everything from your work life to your sex life to your fertility. The condition affects about 11 percent of American women, primarily during the childbearing years. Also known as endometrial implants, it can cause pain and inflammation throughout the pelvic area and, rarely, in other parts of the body and result in painful urination or bowel movements, pain during or after sex, long and heavy periods, digestive problems, chronic pain, and fatigue. For some women, endometriosis is also linked with infertility.

When you think of stress relief, you may be imagining a day at the spa, a relaxing weekend getaway, or just an evening to yourself to unwind in the tub. But de-stressing doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming — and often when you need it the most is when you only have a minute or two to spare.

I think we all agree that a dog is the best training buddy you can ever have. This is the animal which will always be eager and excited to spend more time with you, who never complains, and who makes sure that your time spent together will never be boring. However, even if your buddy does not complain, the workout can still be a little intense, so you should always remain cautious.

Before you put a leash and take your dog out for running and training, always acknowledge that your activities should be fun and productive instead of tiring and stressful.

Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States, affecting more than 16 million men and women (almost 6.7 percent of the adult population) and 3.1 million adolescents.

It is a serious mental illness in which feelings of sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest, anger, frustration, or other negative emotions like irritability (especially in adolescents) last for weeks or years and interfere with daily life.

All people experience moments when they feel sad or blue, but these feelings usually pass within a couple of days and are not indicative of depression.

Depression can cause deep emotional pain both to the person experiencing it and, often, to that person’s close family and friends.

Depression is a significant public-health issue. It is the leading cause of disability in the United States for people between ages 15 and 44 and is the number one cause of injury or illness for men and women around the world. People with depression are more likely to die from suicide as well as from other illnesses, such as heart disease.

Modern society is a sad state that produces many over-processed livers. When we overeat or eat processed or fried foods, or anytime we are exposed to environmental pollutants or stress, the liver becomes overworked and overloaded. When the liver is taxed, it can’t process toxins and fat in an efficient way. There are many foods that can help cleanse the liver naturally by stimulating its natural ability to expel toxic waste from the body.

When a liver is working well, it cleans the blood, helps digest food and fights infection. It is also a bit of a bodily superhero — much like Wolverine and Deadpool, it has the power to regenerate when it has been damaged, replacing old tissue with new cells.
“Anything that keeps your liver from doing its job — or from growing back after injury — may put your life in danger,” the American Liver Foundation warns. That can be inflammation, scarring, cancer or even using too much Tylenol. Although the liver lies on the inside of the body, the body shows outward signs when something is wrong.
