Steroids are man-made hormones derived from male sex hormones, androgens, produced in your body. Steroids are mainly derivatives of testosterone, an androgen that is instrumental in body growth, growth of sex organs, maturity, growth of body hair, and deepening of voice. Steroids are available as pills, capsules, injections, creams and gels. These are often used by weightlifters, bodybuilders, athletes, and other sports persons to enhance their strength, stamina, and performance levels. However, steroid abuse or over dosages have serious side effects or dangerous consequences. Dr. Gary Wadler, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the NY University School of Medicine, says, Although there are many types of steroids with varying degrees of anabolic and androgenic properties, it's the anabolic property of steroids that lures athletes. They take them to primarily increase muscle mass and strength. The reason for that is that the side effects associated for the oral form were discovered to be especially worrisome for the liver. But the injectable steroids arent free of side-effects either. There is no free ride and there is a price to be paid with either form." Dr. Gary Wadler is currently serving in the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA).There are many negative effects of steroids. The negative effects of steroids are on both sexes (male and female); some of the common negative effects of steroids include wooziness, early loss of hair, sleeping troubles, nausea, depression, mood changes, joint pain, hallucinations, paranoia, urination problems, yellow fever, stroke, increased risk of heart disease, trembling, high levels of blood pressure, increased chance of injuring muscles and tendons.Steroid abuse or over dosage may have serious effects on reproductive systems of males as well as females. Some possible negative effects of steroids in males may include testicular shrinkage, powerlessness, hair loss, sterility, development of breasts or nipples, urinary problems, increased size of prostate gland and reduced sperm count. Some of the possible negative effects of steroids in females may include development of male features, increased facial hair growth, breast shrinkage and increased size of the clitoris. There are also psychological dangers of steroids including aggressiveness, depression, anxiety and uncontrolled bouts of anger. There are also many other negative effects of steroids on humans. The users who inject steroids with the help of a needle are at higher risk for infection with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), which causes AIDS. The steroid user who share needles with others or use infected needles are also at high risk for developing hepatitis, liver disease, or bacterial endocarditis, a heart infection. The only way to avoid the negative effects of steroids is stopping their abuse or over usage.
More often than we want to, instances happen wherein problems of almost every kind simultaneously pour in; piles of workload to finish in a short span of time, rare illness or death in the family, inadequate money to pay for bills, and the like can occur all at the same time. In times like these, you just want to hide under your sheets and pray that the gods transport you in a utopian dream and be back only until everything is settled. Since teleportation to paradise is highly improbable, you really have no choice but to face the reality (no matter how distasteful it may be). But, after the storms have passed, you're too stressed beyond imagination. On top of everything, you notice how your skin looks incredibly dull and lifeless and how your energy level and immune system has dropped. What should a sensible person do? Well, for one, you should boost your youthful glow once again by using certain detox products aimed at improving your damaged skin. Following a detox diet, on the other hand, can help you in regaining lost vital nutrients.Did you know that detox products are no longer seen as paraphernalia for vanity's sake but are for legitimate needs? Since it is a need, you should not feel guilty for purchasing stuff that can revive your energy and make you feel well. Detox kits, which are available in wide array of varieties, are made of select herbs and other organic ingredients with cleansing and purifying properties. If you are a habitual drinker, you should definitely try detoxification diets or products specifically aimed at eliminating traces of alcohol in your system. But you should also make sure to avoid, as much as possible, drinking alcohol after your detox program. Detoxification diets and products are available not only to cleanse our systems, but also to teach us a thing or two about self-discipline.A particular nutritionist, who has an article published in the internet, said you should not wait until your body sends telltale signs (such as problems pertaining to digestion) before doing something about it. Excessive amounts of alcohol in the body, if not thoroughly eliminated, can cause serious dysfunction of your internal organs, especially the liver and colon. Detox diet programs for alcohol drinkers include staying away from liquors for a certain period of time. Aside from following a specific diet, you can try taking detox products in order to cleanse your system even if you are not a habitual drinker. Nutritionists want you to remember that there are several causes of impurities aside from alcohol and cigarettes. Everyday, people encounter all kinds of pollutants that bring harm to their bodies. That is precisely why you need to undergo detoxification no matter how 'healthy' you think you are.
There are many types of therapy for stuttering available these days, in this article I describe life after overcoming a stutter. I hope you enjoy the read.My name is Steve Hill and I had a speech impediment known as stuttering from the age of four. The stutter continued to have a damaging affect on my life for eighteen years. At the age of twenty-two, I had had enough and started looking into different forms of stuttering therapy. In the end, I formulated my own stuttering cure techniques and after nearly a year of practice and dedication, managed to overcome the stutter.I was then able to order food and drink for example, without the fear of stuttering, speak on the telephone with confidence and am able to enjoy going out with my friends and family on social occasions. I have become a much happier and positive person, life which was once a struggle is now a pleasure. I now appreciate my new found fluency and am talking far much more than I ever did in the past. I have even been accused of talking too much, but this is something I will never apologise for as I am sure people will understand.A few years ago I met my present girlfriend, Sharron, who has an eleven-year-old daughter, called Taryn. Together we have a son who is five years old, called Ethan.During the years when I had the stutter, I always accepted second best. I left school because of the stutter, dated girls which to be truthful, not only did I not feel attracted to, but did not particularly find interesting and certainly did not love. My stuttering mind convinced me that I could do no better. I was unhappy where I worked, but just accepted it; I did not feel able to put myself through the interview process again.I now only accept the best and my life has improved tremendously.In general, what fluency has given me is:1. Confidence 2. Happiness 3. Contentment 4. Optimism 5. Success 6. Relaxation

Traditionally, family doctors have consulted face-to-face with patients. There are advantages in this approach communication is enhanced, vital signs can be elicited and management plans are easier to discuss and implement. But there are also drawbacks not least of which are the use of doctors time and the inconvenience for the patients.Let me give an example. Let us say you are a patient and you have a cough and cold. You feel unwell so you make an appointment to see your doctor. The appointment is at 3.30 and you work 10 miles away. This means a round trip of 20 miles (if you are going back to work) and 10 or 15 minutes at least in the doctors office. In the end, he may not treat you except with his expert advice. All this time your workplace has been without you.Change the scenario. You PHONE the doctor and he asks you questions. He may still wish to see you depending on the situation. However, as in this case, he might simply say you have a cold or you have the flu and give you help, advice and guidance over the phone (with a caveat that you can always be seen if you want to or if you get worse). The saving for the doctor is time (for a consultation that did not need face-to-face consulting) and the saving for you is time and inconvenience. It is a win-win situation which lends itself neatly to consultations for conditions that are thought to be self limiting and which affect people that have a modicum of common sense about them.I am doing this now. It has worked well. There have been no upsets, no complaints and no difficulties (of note). There has been a lot of time (and therefore cost) saving and patients like the fact they can speak to their doctor without having to visit.We will be continuing this new process and will be further evaluating 9over and above our initial evaluations) in the future.
