Repost from Nuffnang Email

Repost from Nuffnang:

Hey, Nuffnangers!

We'd love to hear about your dieting experiences! Tell us and you may get a chance to win a consultation from Belo Medical Group’s In-Store Consultant & Fitness Expert Edward Mendez, plus Sexy Solutions by Belo treatments! Here are the mechanics of our contest:

1. This contest is open to all member bloggers of the Nuffnang Network with at least one (1) valid ad unit.

2. Contest period is from May 11 to May 31, 2012.

3. Write a blog entry about your most interesting diet story to date. Tell us if it worked or not; if it made you lose weight or if you just lost your mind. The more entertaining and informative your story, the better!

4. Aside from your story, discuss also what else you need help with. Perhaps something that Sexy Solutions can help you out with.

Sexy Solutions ( is a non-invasive fat reduction clinic that has machines that can (1) melt fat in stubborn places, (2) tighten loose skin and (3) tone muscle. After doing your diet, perhaps you might have ended up with another problem that sexy solutions can solve. Examples are: “My diet worked but.... the fat in stubborn areas can't seem to go away,” or “skin is loose after I worked out and lost all the weight.” 

Sexy Solutions also has in-house consultants that can help you with your nutrition and fitness regimen. A concern that you might have after your diet is: “The diet worked but I was weak the whole day so I don't think it was healthy for me to do and it was certainly not sustainable. Perhaps, Sexy Solution's nutritionist can point me towards a healthy way of losing weight.”

Financial Situation

With The Financial Situation For Many People Becoming Increasingly Unstable

With the financial situation for many people becoming increasingly unstable, earning extra online income is becoming ever more popular and sought after.

There are many ways to earn an income online, such as selling products or services or participating on sites that offer payment for completing surveys or clicking on advertisements. Online auction sites are perhaps the most well-known sources of online income, allowing people to sell products from the comfort of their own home.

Less familiar to many people are sites such as PTC (pay to click) or forums and blogs which offer payment for quality content. A number of freelance jobs are also available online, particularly in fields such as editing and translation.
Niche marketing is a further option for those looking to earn an income online and a great deal of advice is available on the internet for this, covering topics such as SEO and garnering income from allowing advertisements to appear on your own blogs or other websites.

Causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

No one will give you a specific cause of IBS. Some experts think IBS is a Motility Disorder. This suggests that IBS patients have an oversensitive or hyperactive gut and will react to changes influenced by stress, food, and hormones.

With the typical chaotic bowel habit of IBS, it is not surprising that it is thought of as a motility disorder. The transit time from ingestion of food to excretion is abnormal.

Sometimes it is slower than normal causing constipation and other times it is faster causing diarrhea. IBS is generally divided into two groups, diarrhea-predominant or constipation predominant. Some have diarrhea and constipation alternating.

As a general rule, however, the transit time in IBS is unpredictable and at any time can be faster or slower, and explains why stools vary in frequency and consistency from hard pellets to watery and unformed.

Some say IBS is a dietary problem.
Certain foods will trigger IBS and others seem to help.
IBS gives a list of food that triggers IBS and others that are beneficial. Some items are mentioned in both lists. This is the nature of IBS.

Just eating food stimulates intestinal muscle activity. This is a normal action and the most common is the Gastrocolic reflex. This reflex is strongest after breakfast. In IBS, large meals, fatty meals or just the wrong meal can trigger a very strong gastrocolic reflex. This results in abdominal pains and or diarrhea.

There is no evidence that food causes IBS but certain foods and the volume consumed at one time can trigger symptoms.

One suggestion is that the fault that results in IBS resides in the Nervous System. The gut has a complex network of brain cells called the Enteric Nervous System. It has more nerve cells than the Spinal Cord. This "Brain of the Gut" is connected to the Brain. Some researchers believe that to understand IBS, we have to understand the workings of the Enteric Nervous System.

The Gut has the richest supply of serotonin in the body. This chemical is closely connected to the nervous system. At present, a lot of research is focused on gut serotonin receptors.

Serotonin affects the nerves in the intestine and controls contractions of the smooth muscles of the gut. This result is peristalsis, a smooth rhythmic contraction along the gut that facilitates the movement of fecal matter along the large bowel. 

Low levels of serotonin lead to constipation and higher than normal levels cause diarrhea.

If the gut and the brain is interconnected by the Gut-Brain Axis, then various factors that affect the Central Nervous System (Brain), can affect events in the gut. This includes psychological factors such as anxiety, stress, and depression. In addition to psychological trauma such as physical, emotional and sexual abuse can affect the gut. Statistics show that there is a greater incidence of psychological trauma and disturbances in IBS. It is suggested that in addition to treating the IBS, treating the other issues will give better long-term results.

Gastroenteritis and IBS: Between 20-30% of patients who develop severe gastroenteritis will go on to develop IBS. The common infective organisms are Campylobacter jejuni, Salmonella Shigella, and Escherichia coli. Gastroenteritis results in inflammation of the gut lining resulting in an overproduction of serotonin. In the thirty percent that develops IBS, the serotonin imbalance continues.

In some women, symptoms fluctuate during the menstrual cycle. The two hormones that control the menstrual cycle are estrogen and progesterone. These hormones can affect the colon and the passage of residue along the gut. In some women, IBS is worse at a certain stage of their cycle.

Prof. Jonathan Brostoff of Middlesex Hospital believes that yeast is involved in some cases of IBS. These patients have reduced levels of friendly bacteria, Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria in their large bowel. This results in overgrowth of Candida

Low yeast diets have been promoted for IBS. This diet involves stopping cheese, all cheese not just blue cheese, and change bread to soda bread, scones, chapattis and any other unleavened bread. Sugar should be avoided. Avoid alcoholic drinks but spirits are distilled to a high level and have little or no yeast. Consume in moderation.
