Natural looking wig

Posted in Articles on July 8th, 2011 by admin – Comments Off

There are two methods of attaching hair to wigs. The first and oldest is to weave the root ends of the hair onto a warp of three silk threads to form a sort of fringe called a “weft”. The wefts are then sewn to a foundation made of net or other material. In modern times, the wefts can also be made with a specially adapted sewing machine, reducing the amount of hand labour involved.

In the 19th century another method came into use. A small hook called a “ventilating needle”, similar to the tambour hooks used for decorating fabric with chain-stitch embroidery at that period, is used to knot a few strands of hair at a time directly to a suitable foundation material. This newer method produces a lighter and more natural looking wig. High quality custom wigs, and those used for film and theatrical productions are usually done this way. It is also possible to combine the two techniques, using weft for the main part of the wig and ventilating hair at the edges and partings to give a fine finish.

With the world population reaching 7 billion you could be forgiven for thinking the human race has an easy time reproducing. While this is true for many people, some couples have problems conceiving yet do not want to go down the route of artificial fertility aids

In terms of human medicine, acupuncture is by far the oldest formalised method of treatment spanning back some 5000 years in China. The acceptance of acupuncture has increased in western medicine over recent decades and many advocate the use of it as an aid to natural fertility.

Acupuncture works on the theory that the body has energy flows, or chi, along recognisable and consistent pathways around the body, called meridians. The insertion of acupuncture needles helps stimulate flow along the meridians, assisting in areas where chi has become blocked or stagnant.

By improving the energy flow, or bio-chemical balance in modern terminology, the whole body is in better health which in itself is an important factor in being able to conceive. Added to this, acupuncture has a long history in reducing stress, stress being a known factor to conception difficulties.

There are possible links with acupuncture to increased health of sperm, helping blood flow to the uterus, increasing the chances of ovulation and also the regulation of ovulation. Acupuncture can be part of a naturally healthy approach to preparing yourself for pregnancy.

Use it as part of a natural fertility approach that can include among other things specific herbal remedies, regular exercise, monitoring the fertility cycle, and making sure your body has as much healthy nutrition while eliminating toxins from your diet. Yoga has a positive effect on all the body systems with programs specifically designed for fertility and pregnancy.

Improve the well being of your mind and body naturally while you prepare yourselves for bringing new life into the world, giving you all the best chance of healthy development at natural fertility Queensland.

Why Do I Need Drug Tests in My Home?

Posted in Articles on September 13th, 2010 by admin – Comments Off

Are your teenager’s grades suddenly slipping? Are you noticing radical changes in attitude and behavior, a change in former hobbies and friends or a sudden secretiveness and disinterest in family activities that didn’t formerly exist?

Many parents may attribute these changes to the normal trials and tribulations of puberty, but there may be something more serious occurring. Some parents are reluctant to believe their child may be experimenting with drugs or alcohol, but the age of initial experimentation is getting younger for teens and even pre-teens. Parents should consider giving their child a drug test to rule out the possibility the child is experimenting with mind-altering substances. Many home drug testing kits are available and can easily be obtained over the internet. Though alcohol is easier to detect because of the smell and obvious behavior changes directly observable while under the influence, some children are very sly about concealing their breath and may not return home until after the obvious effects of alcohol have worn off. Breath tests for alcohol are also available and can detect alcohol consumption several hours after the physical effects have subsided.

Several drug testing kits are available to test either urine or saliva. Certain drugs, like marijuana and benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax stay in the system for up to four weeks and can be detected long after use has occurred. Many of the drug testing kits available screen for use of several drugs at once and give rapid results. If you already know your teenager is experimenting with drugs, these drug tests can also help determine what drugs are being used. Don’t let experimentation get out of hand. If you suspect your child is experimenting with or continuing to use drugs, don’t delay. Get a drug testing kit and find out for sure. There are drug abuse hotlines that can offer assistance and answer questions if you have them.

Heartstart Defibrillator

Posted in Articles on September 13th, 2010 by admin – Comments Off

An automatic external defibrillator (AED) is a readily available life insurance policy that should be installed in any publicly accessible building. By having an AED on hand, a victim of heart troubles, who might have died waiting for an ambulance can be saved by a layperson using a defibrillator.

The heart is a muscle that works by electrical impulses controlling the rhythmic pumping of the chambers. When there is a problem, an inefficient fluttering, known as fibrillation, of the ventricular of the heart can result in oxygenated blood being sent to the brain. After 4 minutes without oxygen, the brain begins to die. The only way to remedy the beating of the heart is to reset it with a strong electric shock delivered by a defibrillator. Immediate action is needed in any case of fibrillation, and it might be too late when an ambulance arrives. Having an AED in the building does not guarantee that it will be used, but if it is needed to save a life, its cost will be more than worth the price. There can be no price high enough to place on saving a human life.

Sudden cardiac events can occur anywhere, and an AED is a means to allow even a layperson without medical training to save a life. AEDs, such as the Heartstart defibrillator, guide the user through the necessary steps to check for vital signs, apply the electrodes, and administer a shock if it is needed. The ease of use of the Heartstart defibrillator is similar to that of other brands. The best AED device will be the one that best fits into the budget and demographic of the place where it will be installed.

Some traveling nurses are very knowledgeable and useful because they are always being placed in different areas and hospitals. What this does is exposes them to a variety of different people and doctors with their own ways of doing things.  Traveling nurses may find that one procedure may work better than another, and from that moment on they are able to share their knowledge and experiences with every hospital or office they go to after. Another benefit to the traveling nurses is that they are truly dedicated to their jobs and are not looking to do anything but provide the best service they can wherever they are needed. They are not going to be competing with the staff for promotions or attention, instead they are just there to do what is needed of them by the doctors and nurses who are there all of the time.

Bracelets for Advertising

Posted in Articles on September 13th, 2010 by admin – Comments Off

I just love rubber silicone bracelets. Maybe that’s because they’re so comfortable and colorful. My favorite silicone bracelet is purple with pink letters that say “Girl on the go.” I have worn this bracelet for the past two years, and everyone who knows me, knows that I don’t go anywhere without it.

Something funny happened recently, that until now I didn’t associate with my rubber silicone bracelets. There is a local club in town that I frequent on the weekends, called “Go Go girls.” My friends and I always go to this club, because that’s where all the cool people go. There is a bouncer at the door, and he always stops us at the door to ask what the password is. The password is good for one week. The next week the password changes. This strict code is only enforced to keep the strays out of the club. Only the cool people know the password.

Last week, Tommy, the bouncer at the door, kept letting me in, and I didn’t even know the password! I thought that was mighty nice of him. It wasn’t until the week was over that someone told me the password was “Girl on the go.” I guess my rubber silicone bracelets turned out to be the password for that week!
