The Healthy Way to Lose Weight

1.   So what is the truly healthy way to lose weight? Whether you are looking for teen weight loss advice or women's weight loss tips, one fact remains the same. There is a healthy way to lose weight and an unhealthy way to lose weight.

2.   Healthy weight loss happens steadily. That does not mean that it cannot happen fairly quickly, but drastic, sudden weight loss is not healthy. Look for healthy weight loss tips that will help you lose weight at a rate of about one to two pounds per week. This is not extremely fast, but the weight that is lost in a healthy manner is kept off much more effectively.

3.   Diet tips that help you lose weight by fixing your food intake and increasing your exercise are the best ones to follow. If you choose to use a commercial program to help you lose weight, you need to find a program that incorporates a balanced diet with increased exercise. All natural weight loss tips that you will find will incorporate these two items.

4.   Focus on What Caused Your Weight Problem. Another way to find effective weight loss tips is to focus on what caused your weight problem in the first place. Sure, you can blame pregnancy, medications, or other life changes, but what really caused you to gain weight?

Did you overeat?

Did you eat to soothe your emotions?

Did you suddenly cut down your level of physical activity due to a career change or some other life factor?

Did the quality of the food you are eating change?

The awareness of own health can benefit a woman to perform her roles & responsibilities more efficiently & smoothly. Here in this article of women health care education we are discussing different problems related to menstrual cycle (menses) like Dysmenorrheal (painful menses), menstrual hygiene, amenorrhea (absence of menses), menorrhagia (excessive bleeding), metrorrhagia (irregular bleeding) & menopause (cessation of menses).
DYSMENORRHEA: Dysmenorrhea is menstrual pain means the pain which occurs during menses, it is normal for most of the women to have mild pain during menses but some of the women have severe type of pain, here the most important thing is that this pain interferes with the normal daily life activities means these pains decrease the daily life activities efficiency by interfering with them. As by splitting the word Dysmenorrhea we can come to know the meaning that is dys + menorrhea, dys means difficult & menorrhea means menses so in simple terms it is difficult menses.
Definition of Dysmenorrhea: “Dysmenorrhea is a medical condition characterized by the pain during menses which is of severe type & interferes with normal daily life activities.”
TYPES OF DYSMENORRHEA:
1). PRIMARY DYSMENORRHEA
2). SECONDARY DYSMENORRHEA
1). PRIMARY DYSMENORRHEA: Primary Dysmenorrhea is the painful menstruation without any pelvic pathology means in this type woman is not having any gynecological problem (any reproductive tract problem). This is the most common type of dysmenorrhea which affects many women. It is characterized by pain that begins before or after the initiation of menstrual flow & continues for 48 to 72 hours. As women become older, primary dysmenorrhea decreases & resolves after child birth.
2). SECONDARY DYSMENORRHEA: Secondary dysmenorrhea is the menstrual pain that is because of some kind of pelvic/gynecological problem or disease such as endometriosis, gynecological tumor or Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. In this type pain starts several days before menses & prolonged to more days as compared to primary dysmenorrhea.
CAUSES OF DYSMENORHEA
The causes of dysmenorrhea are different for the primary & secondary type of dysmenorrhea.
CAUSES FOR PRIMARY DYSMENORRHEA: The main cause of primary type of dysmenorrhea is excessive production of prostaglandin hormone that is responsible for causing the uterine contractions during menstruations & because of these uterine contractions, blood vassals constrict & there will be low blood supply to uterine muscles means low oxygen supply to muscles as blood is carrying the oxygen to the different organs as a result of this there will be vasospasm of uterine vassals as well as the ischemia of the uterine muscles which cause the pain called as primary dysmenorrhea. Anxiety, stress or tensions are also contributing factors for the development of primary dysmenorrhea.
CAUSES FOR SECONDARY DYSMENORRHEA: The cause of secondary dysmenorrhea is the presence of other pelvic pathological conditions such as Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, endometriosis, tumors, uterine fibroids or the use of any Intra Uterine Device (IUD) as a contraceptive method. This type can be treated with medications as it is not auto resolved.
