How to Naturally Eliminate the Side Effects of the Mirena IUD, Such as Bleeding & Weight Gain, and Overcome the Mirena Crash WHAT IS MIRENA? Manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Mirena is a small flexible, T-shaped plastic IUD device. This device is placed in the uterus where it slowly releases the synthetic female hormone levonorgestrel, a progestin birth control hormone that has been proven effective 99% of the time in controlling pregnancy for up to 5 years. Mirena was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000, and in 2009, the FDA expanded Mirena’s approval to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in women already using an IUD. With their approval, women thought it was safe and would also make menstruation less of a nightmare. Unfortunately, for most women, the FDA’s approval was premature. The Mirena IUD not only created discomforting symptoms like heavy bleeding, cramps, hair loss, skin eruptions and weight gain but for some severe anxiety, mood … [Read more...] about How to Eliminate Side Effects of the Mirena IUD Such as Bleeding & Weight Gain

Catching up on sleep over the weekends won't make up for the negative health effects of sleep deprivation during the week, a new study has found. (Stock photo) Catching up on sleep over weekends could cause weight gain, according to a new study. The research, published Thursday in Current Biology, found that people who are sleep deprived during the week — getting fewer than 5 hours of sleep every night — but try to make up for it on weekends don’t actually see many benefits. “Our findings suggest that the common behavior of burning the candle during the week and trying to make up for it on the weekend is not an effective health strategy,” said senior author Kenneth Wright, an integrative physiology professor and director of the Sleep and Chronobiology Lab at the University of Colorado (CU).

HERE’S WHY YOU MAY BE PRONE TO SCARY DREAMS Wright and his colleagues monitored the food intake, light exposure and … [Read more...] about Sleeping in on weekends causes weight gain risks, research shows
By Jason Mastrodonato | [email protected] | Boston HeraldPUBLISHED: February 13, 2019 at 5:17 pm | UPDATED: February 13, 2019 at 5:30 pm FORT MYERS — Chris Sale is going to need two healthy shoulders to carry all that weight into the upcoming season. The Red Sox still haven’t called him about a potential contract extension, he said, leaving the 29-year-old without a contract beyond 2019 as he attempts to come back from an injury-plagued season to help the Sox defend their World Series title. “But like I said, I don’t have time to worry about that,” Sale said Wednesday, speaking after the team’s first official workout of the spring. “We’ve got another championship to go for and that’s where my head is at. That’s where my head has always been at. “Those are the things that I feel have personally helped me be successful. It’s not worrying about any of that. I get the ball.

HUFFPOST PERSONAL 01/25/2019 09:00 am ET By Latoya Shauntay Snell, Guest Writer Last year, I completed two 50Ks and four marathons ― three of which were done within a two-month span. And just a week before I participated in the New York City Marathon, I also completed my first 100K ― the Javelina Jundred event in the Arizona desert, which involves running roughly 62 miles. This year I signed up for 10 marathons and a 50-miler, and I intend on running in my first 100-miler. Still, despite earning over 100 finisher medals and completing close to 200 running, cycling and obstacle course racing events over a span of five years, the internet police continue to remind me to lose some weight. I’m an unapologetic 5’3, 242-pound road and trail ultra runner from Brooklyn sponsored by HOKA ONE ONE running shoe company, and I am continuously fat-shamed. On Jan. 3, I posted a video on my Instagram account of my fitness regimen. … [Read more...] about I’m Running 10 Marathons This Year And I Still Get Fat-Shamed. Here’s My Response.
