Botox for Migraines and Other Health News

Botox the substance injected to make fuller lips and aid anti aging treatments has been found to be successful at lessening the frequency of migraine episodes suffered and those episodes lasted for fewer days too. Allergan Inc. is the drug making company behind the findings. It funded the study in which researchers compared a group injected with botox and a placebo group. Both groups of people were classified as having chronic migraine and normally suffered from the headaches for 15 or more days every month. It will be a year or so before the research findings are published. Earlier this year it was reported on United States news that five categories of drugs are commonly utilized in the fight against migraine and a further report noted that a hand held device may be successful in relieving migraine pain. It was also investigated whether people having a hole in the heart and migraines could be cured of migraine by repairing the hole in the heart. Alcohol Processing Enzyme may Protect the Heart from Harm Alda-1 is an enzyme already known to aid the body in dealing with alcohol. But a recent study published in the journal Science says that the molecule can also protect the heart from harm. The enzyme protects the heart from damage caused by particles known as free radicals. This may be the reason why it has previously been noted that moderate drinkers’ heart attacks are normally less serious than people who do not drink. It is thought that taking moderate amounts of alcohol regularly hardens the heart to fight off damage. Although before these findings the actual method of protecting the heart was unknown.

In another research study it was seen that women tend to be slow to accept that assistance is needed, they do not respond very well to symptoms indicating a heart problem. The answer could be detecting problems early through oral hygiene inspections according to the report.

How to have an Intelligent Baby – Eat Lots of Fish

It appears that eating fish whilst pregnant can increase your unborn child’s intelligence levels. Published in the periodical the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition is the result of a Harvard University study which found that women who ate fish more than three times a week had a 30% increase in their chances of having a baby with increased developmental indications when the child was 18 months. This is when compared to other mothers who ate only one serving of fish a week.

The Danish women involved in the study tended to eat fish from the seas around Denmark which included salmon, herring, cod and mackerel. This way they avoided the fish known to contain higher levels of mercury such as shark, tuna and king mackerel, a much bigger cousin of the local mackerel.

It is also known that genes have an input to factors including intelligence.

How Athletes Change their Training Schedule as the Big Competition Nears

Athletes in any sport must train regularly and also with a plan. They do not want to train too much or not enough, all training must be matched with competition. Bob Alejo is the strength coach for Todd Rodgers and Phil Dalhausser who are the Olympic Gold Medalists at beach volleyball.

He says that before a competition the pair trains regularly doing about one hour of weights, which also consists of squats. They also build up their ‘explosive power’ by doing plyometrics, these exercises can include things like jumping onto a box. If no competition is pending then they train at from 80% to 100% of their capacity, but just before competition the rate drops to about 70% to 85%.In another research study it was seen that women tend to be slow to accept that assistance is needed, they do not respond very well to symptoms indicating a heart problem.
