Five Alternatives To Medicine To Control Seizures

Five Alternatives To Medicine To Control SeizuresControlling seizures naturally should be the goal of everyone who has ever suffered from a convulsion. The side effects of anticonvulsants are horrible. No one should be taking prescription drugs long term. I was convinced by my doctor that the trade offs were worth it. Then I experienced double vision and vertigo at the same time. Now I question everything about the doctors advice. Neurologists give advice based on their own training. They are trained in prescription drugs. Often they do not give alternatives to medicine the credit that they deserve.

There are some things that you can do on your own to reduce seizure activity. Some of these things actually have medical research supporting them. The others have very limited research, but are extremely safe and will not harm you or give you terrible side effects.

First, start listening to Mozart. There have been studies that report listening to Mozart reduces seizure activity in the brain by thirty percent. How can this naturally control seizures? Listening to the complex compositions that Mozart put together puts your brain in a theta state. Seizures are much less likely to occur when you have theta brain wave activity.

Second, start practicing deep breathing. This is a little trickier than it may sound. Most people will get an EEG done and hyperventilate. The doctors have you do this because many people with seizure activity are chronic shallow breathers. Breathing using your full lung capacity in and out of your nose will help reduce some seizure activity.

Third, start taking Coral Calcium. If you are currently on anticonvulsants, they are blocking the absorbtion of calcium. It is quite likely this is showing up as cavities in your teeth or a decrease in your bone density. Coral Calcium is the most natural form of calcium supplementation available.

Fourth, supplement with vitamin E. There have been studies that have shown vitamin E supplementation increases the effectiveness of anticonvulsants. It is probably correcting a vitamin deficiency that people with epilepsy have which makes them succeptible to seizures.

Finally, try some alternative therapies such as acupuncture. There was a study done in Germany that used acupuncture and found it to be effective in over eighty percent of the patients after a year of treatment. What acupuncture does is ensures that the blood is flowing to the brain and the energy is moving throughout the body effectively.

You will also want to get support from people who have succeeded at controlling seizures naturally. Also, read books and articles from people who have conquered epilepsy without medication. There are people who have done it successfully. Don't let your doctor tell you otherwise.

Fantastic Grand Canyon Trips Start with Maverick Helicopters

Fantastic Grand Canyon Trips Start with Maverick HelicoptersThere are several tour companies that offer helicopter flights over the Grand Canyon. However, if you want to ensure you have a great experience and a comfortable flight, then you should fly on Maverick choppers. They offer some of the best tours around.

Maverick's South Rim helicopter rides take off from Tusayan, Arizona. Flights over the West Rim take off from Vegas. Vegas helicopters do not fly all the way to the South Rim. However, you can book a tour package with Maverick that includes an airplane flight from Las Vegas to the South Rim where you can then transfer to a helicopter to tour the rim. It only takes an airplane a little more than 45 minutes to fly from Vegas to the South Rim. The only other way to get from Vegas to Tusayan is by ground, and that is a 5 1/2 hour bus ride each way! You'll save a lot of time by booking one of Maverick's airplane combo tour packages.

Vegas Flights

The helicopters used for West Rim tours depart from a couple of locations in Vegas. The departure point is determined by the tour package you book, but you'll either take off right from the Vegas Strip or you'll take off from the Henderson Executive Airport. Even Henderson is only 15 minutes from all the big Strip hotels. This is a huge advantage, especially when you consider that most of the other tour operators fly out of Boulder City Municipal Airport. It's a 40 minute ride to get to Boulder City from Vegas.

Maverick is also the tour operator with the most EcoStar 130 choppers. They're superb and specifically designed for sightseeing. The cabin has more room than traditional helicopters, and the windshield wraps around the aircraft for spectacular views. The best part is the seats are arranged in stadium style, so no one has a bad seat with a poor view.

When you book a helicopter tour out of Vegas, you can choose an air-only tour or one that lands at the canyon. Creativity in its tours is what sets Maverick Helicopters apart from its competitors. For instance, you can add on an aerial tour of the Vegas Strip, a view of the Valley of Fire, and a fun champagne picnic at the bottom of the canyon (choppers can fly down to the canyon floor at the West Rim but not at the South Rim).

Touring The South Rim

The Maverick tours that fly over the South Rim are thirty or fifty minutes long. If you're short on time, you'll see a lot on the shorter tour, but the longer one is best if you can swing it. You'll get to cover a lot more ground when you book the longer tour and that means you'll see a lot more beautiful sights.

Maverick tours are all-inclusive, so they come with transportation to and from your hotel, lunch with the landing tours, a tour guide, and all fees and taxes. I love these all-inclusive tours because I don't need to do any planning - everything's taken care of.

Maverick isn't the cheapest choice you could make, but I think it's the best. You'll have a superior experience, so the money is well spent. And, if you book your flight directly on the company's website, you'll get a great deal. The Internet rate you get when you book online is usually a lot cheaper than the retail price you pay elsewhere.

Final Tip

You should book your Grand Canyon tour in advance. A lot of travelers are interested in 5-star luxury helicopter tours and most of Maverick's flights sell out pretty quickly. Avoid booking your flight the same day if at all possible. If you can find an open seat, you'll have to pay much more, just like you would if you booked a commercial airline flight at the last minute.

Exploring Barcelona With A City Trip

Exploring Barcelona With A City TripThere are many culturally diverse cities in Europe that are easily accessible with budget airlines, particularly Barcelona.

Often hailed as one of the best cities in the world, Barcelona is a fashionable location to come into contact with the old and new alongside each other and where all your senses will work overtime.

It is easy enough to see why Barcelona is so popular with its unceasing variety of attractions and sights tempting tourists from all walks of life. Stretching from La Ramblas covering the old port of Barcelona and the Plaza Catalunya, an entire day can be dedicated to walking around the Barri Gothic Quarter without venturing any further as there plenty to see and do. Wander around the labyrinths of the narrow streets that meander between old buildings which open out into quaint squares, and then have a break in one of the alfresco cafes full of bustling tapas bars in the vicinity. Find out something about the chronicle of the city and its Roman roots, or visit the Cathedral of Santa Eulalia that is constructed throughout the 13 and 14 century.

Initially planned by Catalan publisher Joseph Bocabella, who wanted to achieve Catholic Church triumphs via the guard of St. Joseph, this monumental assignment eventually came in the hands of Gaudi when he was just thirty one years old. Barcelona is truly blessed with his wonderful designs, he could be indeed, and the main reason the city attracts so many sightseers. This famous work by Gaudi will be the most incredible church you will ever see.

Barcelona is still the birthplace for many progressive architects such as the award winning Ricardo Bofill, the man behind the iconic W Barcelona, shaped like a gigantic boat sail. Born in Barcelona in 1939, Bofill is celebrated for his architectural structures that blend with different cultures. It will also be difficult to miss the perfect geometric block of ME Barcelona Hotel, a glass building designed by French architect Dominique Perrault. Barcelona is widely celebrated for its innovation planning in accessible open spaces; hence there are plenty of places to stroll such as the beaches and gardens. Two of the best are, that goes without saying, Guell Park, another Park de la Ciudadella, a park in Ciutat Vella famous for its museums and boating lake.

In the city centre there are several places that you can take a walk and admire the sceneries, or enjoy fresh coffee in Las Ramblas while watching pedestrians, musicians and performers. Bars in Barcelona start to fill up from 2am onwards. There are plenty of late licensed bars that may stay open as late, or as early as 10am. These bars are not dance clubs but you can either wind down or party some more, depending on your state of mind at that time. There are plenty of live music jam sessions, jazz, blues, burlesque and clubs to choose from particularly in the Las Ramblas boulevard but do not expect crowds until 2 or 3am.

Maremagnum will be the ideal location for families as it is a huge waterfront mall with plenty of walkways and bars before the dark hour starts. As the families depart and the party animals arrive you will find everything here from stylish bars to Irish pubs, it is quite easy to party here till morning as some of the clubs stay open until 6am.

Obviously holiday time depends heavily on either work schedule or budget. Many hotels and airlines give discounts on Friday to Sunday reservations and this gives you plenty of time to enjoy the attractions, shop and have a good night out.

If you want a simple way to Travel then think about staying in holiday apartments since Barcelona has a large number of apartments for any requirements. An apartment in any city can help save money and give you a more unique experience of living in a different culture. The internet is the best source for landing yourself the appropriate rental apartment.

Entertainment NewsWhat Gives

Entertainment NewsWhat GivesWhen I was younger, I used to sit in the kitchen with my grandmother and watch Entertainment Tonight I could not wait to get the latest entertainment news from them. The only problem was that you had to wait a whole day just for them to come on, so that seemed like a lifetime back then, but now I am able to log onto my phone, tablet, laptop or desktop and get the latest headlines in a minute, so that lets you know just how times have changed immensely.
Admittedly, entertainment news draws me into a world that I sometimes do not want to go in, because I feel as if that is their life and their business, but a lot of times they will make it the publics business when they start posting things on social media sites, which they know are followed by their fans, so why I would feel bad for constantly being in love with entertainment news and the drama that comes along with it I have no idea.

It was so funny to see Kim Kardashian get on Instagram and post an almost naked picture of herself, trying to prove to the world and her fans that she is back on track and in shape after giving birth to the daughter of both she and rapper/producer Kanye West. While I thought that was a bit extreme, there is no one better at knowing what entertainment news will go viral, better than Kim Kardashian and the whole Kardashian tribe. That picture got the socialite starlet a lot of flak, flak which she seemed to have enjoyed, as long as it did what she set out to do, and that was grab headlines on every website, every blog and every radio personalities mouth had her name in it, before that day was over. That is what people who know the importance of an entertainment news headline does and how it converts to dollars, ultimately.

While there is no doubt, some entertainment news portals are better than others at dishing the facts, we all cannot help but pick up a National Enquirer or an InTouch Weekly, knowing that their facts about some celebrities are a bit distorted. Nonetheless, it does what an entertainment news piece should do ENTERTAIN! Well, I will keep being a news connoisseur not of world news, but of news in the entertainment sector.

Elder Care - Keeping Your Marriage Strong While Caring For Aging Parents

Elder Care - Keeping Your Marriage Strong While Caring For Aging ParentsThe Situation: Aging Parents

Many couples are readjusting their lives and schedules so that they can be more attentive to the needs of their aging parents. A whopping 44 million adults in the United States are providing unpaid care to another adult, according to a recent study by the National Alliance for Caregiving and others.

Taking care of an aging parent that lives nearby could be as small as making an extra visit each week, helping with chores or driving to a doctor appointment. A more dramatic change could be your parent moving in with you or relocating to the town you live in. Alternatively, you might find yourself traveling long distances back and forth between your home and your parent's home to assist with their needs.

Effects on the Relationship

So how does this new situation affect a relationship? Each partner may be affected in a different way. The one with the parent will feel a new sense of responsibility and may feel guilty for having someone take up so much more of their time. The other partner may feel resentful of the time his/her partner is spending away from the household and the relationship; he/she may feel guilty about not being more supportive.

Here are some of the changes that may occur.

Household chores may need to be transferred from the partner attending to the parent to the other partner. If this does not occur, the partner with the parent may begin to spend extra time at night and on weekends fitting in chores.
There may be new expenses related to local or out-of-state Travel to and from the parent's home and doctors' offices.
Even when there is no long distance Travel involved, there is less time for nurturing your relationship. For example, you and your partner may have had a Sunday brunch tradition that now has ended as one of you goes off to spend Sunday with Mom or Dad.
All of the above can add stress to both partners, resulting in moodiness and or resentment.

Tips for Coping

Use your best you: is the care giver feeling overburdened with her new responsibilities? Is the other spouse finding it difficult to take over household tasks the caregiver does not have time for anymore? Does anyone feel unsupported or abandoned? Plan ahead: It is about your life.

When you know that a change is imminent regarding an aging parent, create the time to discuss it with your partner. Discuss how this change will affect both of you. Here are some things to be addressed:

How to avoid burn out trying to do too much alone.
How can you help your partner with the caring for his/her parent
How will this change affect your family finances.
How can your children contribute to helping with the caring for Grandma or Grandpa.
What boundaries will you put on the type of and amount of care you will provide to your parent. What can you do to keep your relationship intact with your new responsibilities.

The Happy Result

One woman shared the following: "When my husband is supportive of my role as care giver of my mother, inside my heart opens up and I feel deep love and appreciation for him. I feel the essence of my femininity being honored and that is quite simply "soul food."

The husband said, "I am using some of the time that my wife is spending caring for her mom to catch up on projects and interests I have had for a long time and have not been able to get to. Instead of focusing on the fact that she is not available, I am grateful for the time to work on my projects.

It is powerful to be in solution mode when dealing with life's situations. There are solutions for couples who are faced with caring for an elderly parent. It is possible to keep a relationship strong and loving during this time.
