Proactiv Solution - Squidoo

If you suffer with acne, you have probably heard of Proactiv Solution. Here is some info you may not know:
About Proactiv Solution

Proactiv Solution is the world's best-selling acne treatment. Proactiv Solution was developed by two dermatologists, Dr. Katie Rodan Dr. Kathy Fields in the early 1990s and introduced to the public as an acne treatment in 1995. The multi-med* topical treatment for mild to moderate forms of acne has been marketed by Guthy-Renker infomercials since 1995. However, if you don't happen to catch an infomercial, Proactiv can be hard to find since it is not sold in stores. Here is more info on Rodan + Fields Proactiv Solution

November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month

 

November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. Since I lost my own father to this cruel disease, I am intimately familiar with how it slowly steals your loved ones from you.

President Reagan is one of the most famous public figures to have suffered from the disease. After leaving office in 1989, he publicly announced that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 1994. In 2011, country-gospel legend Glen Campbell announced he is fighting Alzheimer’s disease.

What is Alzheimer’s?
The Alzheimer’s Association defines Alzheimer’s as “a brain disease that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.” Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia. According to Wikipedia, Alzheimer’s is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050. Since many of the normal signs of aging can be confused with Alzheimer’s, it is important to know the signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s
The symptoms of Alzheimer’s tend to develop slowly, with symptoms increasing over time. Besides becoming forgetful, which is usually not a sign of Alzheimer’s, an individual with the disease forgets things and misplaces items and cannot retrace steps or thoughts to retrieve the info. While many older people without Alzheimer’s strugle to remember a word, Alzheimer’s causes people to forget the meaning of common words. As the disease progresses, Alzheimer’s patients loose the ability to converse, and eventually they may forget how to speak at all.
The personality and moods of an Alzheimer’s patient change, usually for the worse. They may no longer remember loved ones. If a patient survives these stages, he may eventually forget how to eat, smile, and otherwise interact with his or her environment on any level.

Alzheimer’s Research
Most of what we know about Alzheimer’s has been discovered in the past 15 years as researchers have discovered links to genetics, brain injuries and brain structure. Drugs have been developed to slow the disease. Research is ongoing into treatment and a possible cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

Nashville Alzheimer Resources
Nashville has several resources to help residents with Alzheimer’s. When my own father reached the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s, we turned to McKendree Village in Hermitage, TN, which has 150 beds of skilled nursing care including Alzheimer’s care.
In Nashville the Mid South Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association serves Tennessee and Alabama.

Do Skin Care Home Remedies Work? Why Natural Skincare Remedies Can Be Deadly | Skin Health Beauty





I have always been fascinated by home remedies and natural skin care remedies. My mother swore by natural remedies, subscribed to “Prevention” magazine, and was an avid user of anything handy around the house, from olive oil to aloe vera leaf to baking soda and bacon grease. I naturally followed her example… to a point, and have frequently used aloe vera for burns, baking soda for insect bites, olive oil on my skin, but I never could bring myself to experiment with bacon grease.

What Is Acne?
Acne is an equal-opportunity skin problem. It hits people of all races and backgrounds, both male and female, and can be a problem from the pre-teen years in some people into retirement age in others. It is most common in the teen years and is seen more often in boys than in girls. However, approximately 40% of adult women develop breakouts and blemishes at some time during their adult life, and some women suffer from adult acne for up to 20 years. Men can also be victims of adult acne.

As reported in What is salicylic acid?, salicylic acid is the beta hydroxy acid (BHA) used in many skin care products, and as shown in What is glycolic acid?, glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) which is also used in numerous skin care products.

Salicylic Acid
Salicylic acid is the only beta hydroxy acid found in cosmetic products, so when we discuss BHAs, the term beta hydroxy acid is interchangeable with salicylic acid.
