One of the most common problems affecting the elderly is dementia. It is often mistakenly seen as a disease, rather than a collection of symptoms. Those symptoms occur when the brain is damaged and that can happen due to different diseases, such as Alzheimer’s. Depending on what caused the damage, people experience various symptoms of dementia.

What is also important to know is that dementia usually develops gradually, which makes it very difficult to be recognized early on. Another problem is that many symptoms are identical to those that aging people experience, such as mild forgetfulness, but that doesn’t mean that they suffer from dementia.

Furthermore, dementia symptoms also include impairment in thought and communication, which could be symptoms of a number of conditions, which means that diagnosing dementia and being right about it is not easy. Here are some of the signs that can help you realize whether your aging partner, family member or friend might be suffering from dementia.

The world is addicted to coffee. Consumption is going up every year, and it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. So, whether your morning starts with a premium, single-batch brew at home or a caramel macchiato at Starbucks, there’s a pretty good chance you are one of the millions who can’t get their day going without a fresh cup of Joe.

But what exactly is the effect of coffee on the body? Avid drinkers will say that caffeine and coffee are perfectly healthy when taken in moderation and that it can easily form part of a balanced lifestyle. Others, however, are left jittery or uneasy after consuming even a single cup, and they often consider coffee to be unhealthy, sometimes even going as far as to say it’s a drug.

However, countless studies released recently have found coffee to be harmless when consumed in moderation. And regular consumption may even help reduce the risk of some conditions such as Parkinson’s, depression and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Some of this research comes from Harvard Medical School, so it’s not like we’re talking about some blogger telling the world coffee is good for you in the face of strong evidence it is not.

So, then, why is there still so much debate? As with anything, misinformation is the main culprit. Some assumptions have been made, and people with bigger microphones are able to get their voice heard more than the little people, and this has led to coffee getting a bad name. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why the health benefits of coffee are still up for debate.

Illness is inevitable. The human body does not always work as it should, and sometimes we need to use medication and physical therapy to get it back on track. Obviously, that is nothing to be ashamed of. However, when it comes to mental illness, many people do not see it that way. Instead, they consider it a problem with who they are as a person. People who suffer from anxiety tend to blame themselves. If only they were stronger. The same is true of depression. They should be able to snap out of it. With more complex mental illnesses and personality disorders, the self-judgment only gets deeper.

There are two main reasons for this. The first is that most societies do not really understand mental illness. They tend to see it as a weakness of will, rather than an actual disease. To those who haven’t experienced mental illness, “snap out of it” might seem like good advice. The second reason is that self-judgment is a symptom of most mental illnesses. When one is feeling anxious, hopeless, despairing, it is hard to see oneself from an objective perspective. We see ourselves as weak because the illness affects our thought patterns and feelings.

Things You Should Do In Blepharitis

We often suffer from various sensory diseases, the most common being the ones that affect the eyes and the skin. Ocular problems are quite prevalent if you have the certain type of allergy or if you are sensitive to chemicals or other stimuli such as perfumes, medicines or cosmetics. Inflammation in the eyes can be quite uncomfortable and most of the time, it leads to watery eyes with redness and puffiness. One such problem is Blepharitis where the eyelid swells along the lashline. Clinically it can be cured if precautions are taken at the right time. However, no matter how meager the problem is, this eye infection is bound to cause irritation and discomfort. Hence, adequate measures should be taken to treat the symptoms of this condition at the right time to ease the pain and discomfort that arises in blepharitis. This condition may be brought on by bacterial invasions which affect the functioning of meibomian glands. As a result, the glands become blocked and lead to swelling at the base of lashline. Some mites inhabiting the eyelashes are also known to offset this condition. Those suffering from dandruff are also at greater risk of contracting this condition as the dandruff flakes settle on the eyelids and eyelashes which leads to clogging within pores and meibomian glands and leads to swelling on the eyelid.

Blepharitis is treated after conducting a thorough evaluation of symptoms accompanying this eye condition. However, there are some ways you can adopt at home to reduce the swelling and pain it causes. We have put together a list of things you should do when blepharitis strikes you.
