Preventing Falls by Dementia Patients

When people get Alzheimer’s dementia, they are highly likely to do things that they would never attempt were they doing okay. Alzheimer’s dementia mostly affects old people and is a neural degenerative disease. One of the biggest risks that they have to live with is the risk of falls from the bed when they are getting up. They also risk getting lost since most of the times they want to wander away and this could lead them to easily getting lost.

While working at an elderly home, I have found out that medical caregivers and nurses can avert this dangers by getting some bed leaving alarms or even pagers that will alert them whenever the elderly person is at the brink of getting lost or falling off from the bed.

According to Hosiped, the bed alarm should be placed under the mattress pad where the patient is sleeping and anytime they are attempting to get out of the bed, the bed alarm will detect such movement and alert the caregiver who should then promptly head over to where the elderly person is lying and help them out of the bed without causing any dangers.

How to minimize risks of bed falls

  • Make sure that the elderly has gone to pee before bed so that they do not feel the urge and go to the toilet unsupervised.
  • Make sure that the bed has bed rails
  • Make sure that the patient is comfortable
  • The bed room should be kept moist free to avoid falling
  • Have motion sensors in the patient’s bedroom that are going to detect any movement that might cause a fall.
  • Have pets near the patient as they tend to make them feel loved and have companionship around them—which is a thing that most demented person do crave.
  • Have them well fed because they might want to get out of bed and grab some food and in the process, they might fall and injure themselves.

How to treat erectile dysfunction using natural methods

Let me point out this: I hate Viagra and Cialis. With a passion. They are unhealthy and hazardous. I would never recommend these two pills even to my worst enemy. Why give a boner pill to someone that will serve them for only a few minutes and cause them cardiac problems in future?

Viagra and Cialis are not permanent ways to cure erectile dysfunction. They only work for a while and then stop. You have to take them through and through if you still want to get a boner.  They are also expensive and the guy selling you these drugs is smiling all the way to the bank because they know that you will be a repeat customer. It is a rat race.

Fortunately, there are natural ways to cure erectile dysfunction permanently. Infact, there are enhancement pills such as testogen and male extra that work fast and are more permanent when taken over time as shown in the article: [BEST] 2 Male enhancement pills that work fast and permanently in 2018

But before we go into that, let us understand how the penile erection happens.

How an Erection happens


Your penis contains a spongy chamber called the corpora cavernosa that is responsible for getting hard and long. While at the gym or doing other things, the space is empty

When you are sexually stimulated either by talk or touch, your brain releases nitric oxide that goes to the erectile tissue in the penis. The erectile tissue on the other hand opens up the blood arteries and closes the veins so that blood comes into the penis and does not flow out. This maintains your erection.

What causes ED?

People with erectile dysfunction do get aroused but the arteries do not open up fully and thus their erections are flaccid or non-existent. Causes of Ed include:

  • Cardiovascular disease.
  • Diabetes.
  • Hypertension.
  • Hyperlipidemia.
  • Cancer.
  • Obesity.
  • Age.
  • Stress.
  • Anxiety.
  • Drug use.
  • Excessive alcohol.
  • Smoking.
  • Certain medications.

So what are the natural ways in which they can cure this erectile dysfunction?

Exercise regularly and lose weight:

People with obesity and high weight are more likely to suffer from Ed as opposed to those who are lean and do go to the gym often.

Reduce stress: when you are stressed, the brain might not send the nitric oxide that brings about erection. People with depression and stress are therefore advised to have a sound mind before they try any ed medication

Quit drugs: Durgs such as alcohol and cigarettes make you unable to get or maintain an erection.

Eat healthy food: Foods rich in zinc, magnesium and boron such as oyster, fish and chicken have been found to boost testosterone levels and therefore end up making you sexually active.

Take natural supplements: such as l-arginine, horny goat weed and yohimbe.



Why I didn’t Like Performix Sst

So I come across this performix weight loss sst review that was praising performix as a diet pill that would help me lose all the stubborn fats around my love handles and torso area and I completely sold.  I was to reap from these benefits and I therefore go ahead and buy the supplements from amazon.

performix sst

My weekly results using performix sst fat burner

Week 1:

I do my gym, take the performix as shown in the pack. I know that results will start showing in week 2. However at end of week 1, I feel lighter and more stronger to exercise.

Week 2:

Really sweating it out in the gym. My appetite is also suppressed. Feeling full most of the time.

Week 3:

My sleep has been affected. Checking the scales though, I feel motivated, I have lost 19lbs so far. My love handles are almost non existent.

Week 4:

Final week and I have lost 21lbs. Performix is indeed great in thermogenesis.


Performix sst is indeed a strong thermogenic fat burner that gets you really ripped. It does this by its unique blend of ingredients such as theacrine, eviodamine, yohimbine, kinetiq and caffeine. It however have very strong side effects such as lots of sweating which I think is because of the much heat generated from your body during thermogenesis.

You will also feel dehydrated after all the sweating and I would therefore advise anyone who is about to take it to be ready to take lots of water for hydration lest you pass out in the gym or feel a dry mouth.

What I loved about it

I was able to lose 20lbs in the 1 month. That is crazy considering that other weight loss supplements take so long before you see any tangible results.

What I loved most about performix however was the fact that I was able to lose my love handles. You see I had tried doing everything to get rid of those ugly obliques but unfortunately, nothing seems to work. All the supplements I tried made me lose weight but the stubborn love handles remained. It is then that I found a study about alpha 2 receptors and how they can be effectively blocked using yohimbine. Since yohimbine is in the performix, it saved my day.

What I didn’t like about performix sst

For one I did not like the much sweating that I went through the one month.

Due to too much caffeine in the product, I was not able to sleep for a long period. I should have read that I ought to take it only during the afternoon hours and not anything past 4.00pm.

I suffered from diarrhea, nausea and a dry mouth. This was not any good for me despite the large amount of weight I lost using the supplement. I would never go for it again, not unless the manufacturers do something about such side effects.


Why you should not NEVER buy phenq from amazon and what to do instead

We have already pointed out that there are a lot of scammers in the weight loss industry. Interestingly, people seem not to get this because everyday I am faced by people who have been scammed after buying phenq diet pills from unscrupulous sources. It seems that people just like being scammed because the only source of information I trust on this diet pill is phenq reviews 2018.

So how does the scam work

It works through amazon. Yes, I just said that. But I am not blaming the giant ecommerce site in any way. If anything, amazon is just a marketplace and they get so many suppliers that they are not really able to know the best from the scammers.

That said, how are the scammers ripping off people on amazon

In a post titled Phenq from Amazon, Gnc and Walmart, the writer clearly indicates how you get scammed off phenq.They are selling phenq right but when you check the ingredients, they are nothing but placebos or will have adverse side effects. All that they are doing is branding the placebos as phenq owing to how reputable the brand is. Call it identity theft and I am sure the manufacturer is doing some litigation. But that should not make you just relax. No, do your due diligence any time you buy weight loss pills.

The real phenq contains

  • Caffeine
  • Capsimax powder
  • Nopal
  • Calcium carbonate
  • Chromium piccolinate

The fake supplements lack these ingredients or are made with other ingredients and have therefore not been tested for their efficiency.

Again if you buy your diet pill from these stores, you fail to get the following

Money back guarantee

If you buy your supplement from you get a 100% money back guarantee in case the product does not work or comes in wrong packing.

Free Shipping

Phenq website does not charge for shipping. Amazon, gnc and Walmart might charge for this.

Offers and discounts

The official phenq website gives very tempting offers, coupons and discounts which gives you value for your money.

Quality guarantee

As we have mentioned, buying at phenq gives you an assurance of quality. Buying at other stores does not guarantee this.

Customer support

The phenq website is structured in such a way that when you arrive, you are met by this awesome and well layout website that lures you. They also have a support chat system incase you want to ask any kind of question.




Tips when choosing the best hospital bed

When you have a senior or invalid to take care of from home, you want them to feel that they are loved and that is why you will sacrifice everything you have got just to show them this. Buying a hospital bed is one of them. The question that most people seem to be asking me though is how to choose the best hospital bed. In this post, I will talk about what you need to check.

Patient needs

If the patient is completely immobile, I would advise that you buy them a full electric bed since all that you need is use the automatic control that adjusts the bed from one position to the other. If the patient is somehow independent, then you can get them either a semi-electric or manual bed. With the manual bed, the crank at the foot of the medical bed does all the dirty work of adjusting the height, foot and head positions. With a semi-electric on the other hand, the only thing that you do manually is adjusting the height since the other parts are taken care of by the electricity. When the power goes off as it normally does in my country, all these beds are manual unless they have a back-up motor battery installed.

Non slip mattress

I have seen so many patients complain that their mattresses were moving on the bed and were not stable. Others said that they were too tough and would cause discomfort on their bums. You do not want this; do you? Well. You can get non-slip mattresses that do not cause bed sores, are cozy to sleep on and offer you value for your money.

Noiseless and trail less casters

You do not want casters that make so much noise as well as leave a trail of dark soot wherever they go, do you? No, I just hate the screeching sound of casters and I always make sure that I get rubber casters everytime am buying a hospital bed. The problem with this though is the leaving of a dark trail. Luckily, there are some good casters out there that are not going to leave any trail behind them when you use.

Padded rails

I always advice those that come to me that they should make sure that their rails are foam padded. You do not want to leave non-padded rails because they can cause all sorts of problems from bed entrapment between the rails, under the rails or within the split rails. At the same time, padding prevents the patient from getting hurt lest they hit their heads on the rails when they have a seizure.

Flexible mattress

Since the hospital bed adjusts anytime the patient wants to take their meds, take meals or just watch telly and hang out with friends, they will need a flexible mattress that will be able to fold when you adjust the bed. With normal mattresses, you will find that it begins to crack but with an innerspring mattress such as the invacare hospital bed mattresses, it is able to withstand all that folding and what-nots.

Why You Need Diabetic Shoes

The CDC recommends a good homecare regimen for diabetics, which includes wearing the right socks and shoes. The right shoes are diabetic shoes.


Why would the CDC recommend diabetic shoes?


Relieving Plantar Fasciitis

diabetic shoes

Plantar Fasciitis is more common in diabetics.


The condition occurs when painful inflammation develops in the plantar fascia, a fibrous band of tissue supporting the arch at the bottom of your foot.


A good diabetic shoe features an orthotic insole which supports your foot arch in an anatomical posture. This keeps your plantar fascia from overstretching and being overloaded, the contributing factors that cause painful inflammation.


Managing Diabetic Neuropathy


Diabetic neuropathy occurs in 60% to 70% of diabetics.


According to the National Institute of Health, this form of nerve damage to your feet can:

  • make injuries take longer to heal due to restricted blood flow
  • make you lose sensation so you can’t easily detect injuries, which go untreated
  • lead to infection on the unnoticed and untreated injuries


Therefore, well-cushioned diabetic shoes will prevent injuries in the first place, so you don’t end up with nasty and costly infections. In fact, you should never go barefoot even indoors, to avoid injury. And always check your shoes before wearing, for any pebbles or harmful objects.


Preventing Blisters, Corns and Calluses


Considering the importance of avoiding injuries which lead to infection, even the simplest of injuries must be avoided. These include blisters, corns and calluses.


Shoes that don’t fit can cause blisters. Hence, shoes for diabetic people are always roomy inside and well cushioned to avoid such a scenario.


Also, corns and calluses occur due to too much rubbing or pressure on one spot. Therefore, proper shoes for diabetics according to are designed with interior foam padding to cancel out all pressure points.


Important Note


Although shoes for diabetics offer great benefits, you must first get used to wearing them. This means wearing them for about an hour a day initially, before you feel completely comfortable.


Overpronation running shoes

overpronation in shoes

You are trying thick and thin to lose weight, right? So you get some good shoes for running so as to beat off those excess pounds of weight. However, another problem arises. You get overpronation of the feet.

Overporonation is a condition whereby the feet roll inwards as one steps on the ground. With this condition, your running efficiency is greatly reduced and you also stand a chance of injuring yourself during a run.

To get us started, here’s a few ways of determining if you are overpronated or not.

Overpronation tests

  1. You can visit a podiatrist for purposes of having him analyze your gait. This method will give you the most accurate results of the pronation test.
  2. Another way to go about this is to have a look at your shoes, which you use when walking or running, and see where they have worn out the most. If the shoes are worn out on the inner part of the sole, then you are over-pronated.
  3. Lastly you can do the ‘foot print test’. For this test, dip your foot/feet in some shallow water to wet the sole of your feet. Then you step on a floor or a piece of paper that will show your footprint once you step on it. If the wet strip is more than half the width of your foot, chances are you over-pronate.

Overpronation running shoes features

  1. The pair of shoes should have more support and better cushioning that those of a person of neutral pronation.
  2. Availability of added cushioning and a means of absorbing shock at the heels. This can be provided by, for instance, by having a heel wedge.
  3. The midsoles should be firm for better arch support.

These are not all the features that you should look out for. Moreover, manufacturers will have varying technologies and go on to give them fancy names. This can be even more confusing.

However, a review such this one for best running shoes for treadmill will point you in the right direction towards getting a pair of overpronation running shoes. Therefore, it becomes much easier to make your decision on which pair of shoes to buy.

At the same time, you need to make sure that the shoe is diabetic healthy.

Weight Loss

I started reading this awesome blog on and bumped on this compelling set of information that I just can’t consume alone. I really need to share it. The blog centred on one thing, do not just trust information. Only trust great info from relevant people.

Weight Loss Scammers

The worst thing about being overweight in the 21st century is not being ridiculed, feeling out of place or have self-esteem issues. No, the worst thing is being scammed right, left and center. You see, we are in a generation where everyone pretends to be a guru in what they do despite the fact that they know zilch.

So you will bump into these bloggers who call themselves weight loss experts who are going to advise you to buy a certain weight loss supplement but my dear friend, most of those know nothing about nutrition. They know nada about weight gain and should therefore advise no one on how they can slim or get ripped.

They will advise you about products to buy but they end of hurting you. Say for example that someone asks that you buy shoes but they end up getting you a problem like feet overpronation.

In this age of the internet and where every Tom, Dick, Harry, their dogs and grandmothers have a blog, you should look out from whom you are reading.

So, how do you differentiate the chaff from the wheat?

  1. Certification

Any serious fitness blogger should post their certification on their blog so that we can trust them. The diploma should be from a highly reputable institution of higher learning or otherwise, they will scam you.


Look at the comment section and see who else has bough the product being marketed. Are they satisfied

  1. Positive reviews all through

If the writer is doing a positive review of every product and claiming that they have used them all, that is scam written all through. Do not touch their products. Even in the most natural markets, the seller has not tried everything and therefore cannot vouch for all.


  1. Linked out

Check who is linking to the blogger. If authority sites, then they are good to read from. If they are linked out by low quality blogs, then they could be spammers who have paid little for the low quality links. By authority sites, we are talking of sites such as Forbes, Webmd, Medicinenet etc.

Arch Sleeves and braces


Protective apparel is very important especially if you are talented in sports and like to show and share your skills with the world. As much as sports are interesting, they can lead to severe injuries in the feet, legs and hands. This statement does not imply that are sporting activities are dangerous. However, most of them including simple exercise such as the aerobics can lead to severe injuries. There is a wide range of protective gears that are used to prevent various parts of the body from injuries. The common ones include: mouthguard, shoulder stabilizer and support, back braces and stabilizers, elbow sleeves, wrist wraps, thumb stabilizers, knee braces, and arch braces and sleeves.  Good support apparel is made if sturdy and lightweight material, that protects the body from injury without impacting the weight during performance. Furthermore, each type of apparel serves a specific purpose.


Arch braces and sleeves are specifically designed to protect the feet and ankles.  They are essential for preventing conditions such as planter fasciitis, edema, heel pain and ankle contracture. In most cases arch braces and sleeves are made of strong compression material that enhances blood circulation in the feet. This enhances metabolism thereby preventing swelling.  The other benefit of compression material is that it does not constriction. Constriction can lower blood circulation thereby inducing pain and swelling.


The compression material is also important for preventing joint injuries. They enhance joint stabilization by covering all the necessary areas appropriately.  Some sleeves and braces are padded and infused with medical grade gel that relieves pain. Arch sleeves and braces should be used during sports activities. You do not have to be a professional athlete to use them. Injuries can occur anytime and it is important to avoid them at all costs. Some of the factors to consider when buying these products include quality, reviews, brand, material, cost and design.
