Digital vs Text Book?

Today’s students see themselves as digital natives, the first generation to grow up surrounded by technology like smartphones, tablets and e-readers. We’ve seen more investment in classroom technologies, with students now equipped with school-issued iPads and access to e-textbooks. The question is, do we learn better from printed books than digital versions? The answer from researchers is a qualified yes. Print books are tangible; the act of turning pages, dragging highlighters across information, and seeing progress has been shown to leave spatial impressions on your mind that help absorb content. And print books don’t have online distractions!

Whether you are late for your tee time, focused on your first big drive, or catching up with your friends, it is easy to forget the importance of a good warm up.

Pets and Bee Stings

Warmer weather, blooming plants and buzzing insects can all spell trouble for your pets. If your curious pooch or pouncing feline gets stung by a bee, here’s what you can do: Scrape away the stinger if you can find it. Pulling the stinger with fingers or tweezers could rupture the poison sac allowing toxin to enter the bloodstream. If no medical history or treatments contraindicate, administer 1 mg Benadryl® per pound of your pet’s body weight and apply a cold pack for short periods at a time. If swelling is severe or if ANY breathing difficulties develop, do not delay—seek veterinary attention immediately.

Focus on the Positive

Few, if any, are thrilled with having become amputees and having to rely on a prosthesis to live their lives. Those who do well accept their situation and make a conscious decision to not let it get in the way of living life to the fullest. Not every day as an amputee will be a walk in the park. Often, you’ll need to exhibit an immense amount of patience and perseverance. However, if you focus on the positives versus dwelling on the negatives, with sincere effort and determination, you will live a fulfilling life as a prosthetic user.

Balance Your Hormones

What does hormonal imbalance look like? Hot flashes, night sweats, bloating, pain, irritability, brain fog, irregular cycle, and fatigue are just some of the symptoms. If you suffer from any of these symptoms and haven’t been able to find relief, why not try balancing your hormones naturally. Biofeedback testing and treatment helps to detect imbalances and stimulates hormone producing organs to balance the body. Another effective option is to get your body tested to see if it is lacking specific hormone related nutrients. If you are, natural nutritional formulations can be taken to correct the hormonal imbalance and relieve your symptoms.

Why Do I Have Shoulder Pain?

Our shoulders are amazing joints that provide a great range of motion. The rotator cuff, a group of four muscles, provides much of this control, along with many other muscles that connect to the shoulder blade. Injury and pain can happen here, whether an acute injury or pain that develops over time. Current evidence would suggest that strengthening the shoulder is the best course of action for many shoulder injuries and shoulder pain. Your physiotherapist is a highly trained professional who can guide you to getting your shoulder stronger so you can get back to doing what you enjoy.
