Honouring Your Folks

Hounouring your parents means looking after them during their old age.It clearly means not to let your parents down when they depend on you.As this is their time of need the most, as previously they have cherished their life and love for us, to nurture to whom we are now.Its not only part our responsble to take care for them but also moral obligations.below are some quick ideas how you can cultivate an honouring relationship with your parents:-

Parenthood is a calling that lasts a lifetime.Parents are still deeply concerned when,as an dault, on thinghappen to you or around you.Learn to appreciate and share things that occur in your life as appropriate and be willing to embrace the truth that regardless your age, you are still their baby.

Parents are human being too.They do have interest, hobbies,friends,siblings and emotions.Spend time talking to them, ask them about their liking and their wish.Do give them room to express themselves or offer to join them in important activities.

No matter how irritating their behaviour or words,be polite to them.Talk to them in the same way you want to be spoken to.Treat them with patience and understanding.Do not ever raise your voice or be impatient at their slowness to understand.

You should never ever slander your parents.No matter what they said or done, you shoul never let them down even in fromt of your spouse, friends or siblings.You harm their character or ingrain a rejection of your parents by speaking negatively about them.

When we leave our parents to our spouses, a great union is created.But do bear in mind that when you leave home, you leave the ones whom poured their whole life into developing you and caring for you.Be sure to call,turn around regularly and share your love,concern and gratitude.Initiate calls rather then for them to call you.

As you share your difficult situations with your parents, you can expect them to be concerned about you.There are times they will about your well being.Let them know that know you appreciate their concern.Initiating conversation will help validate their feelings and quell their fears as well.

Train your children to speak to their grandparents, regularly, with respect even they are teenagers.At home talk to your children abut grandma and grandpa often.These little thing that can bridge the gap that distance created.Your effort will be appreciated and it helps your parents connect to your children.

The above suggestion will not be helpful unless your heart desires to honour your parents.Think of will you feel when your children do not appreciate or honour you.So let it start from you, be the lead of example..

Hair Loss

Is hair loss normal?
Everyone has some hair loss every day. In fact, it is normal to lose up to 100 strands of hair a day. However, some people lose a lot of hair early in life because it runs in their family (inherited) or because of disease, medications, stress, injury, or damage to the hair.

What causes hair loss?
The most common cause of hair loss is genetic—you inherit the tendency to lose hair from either or both of your parents. This is called male-pattern or female-pattern hair loss, or androgenetic alopecia. (Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss.) About half of all people have this type of hair loss by about 50 years of age.

Other common causes of hair loss include:
Ringworm of the scalp (tinea capitis), which is common in children.
Mental stress or physical stress, such as recent surgery, illness, or high fever.
Chemotherapy, the use of medication to destroy cancer cells.
Pulling your hair back too tightly, wearing tight braids or ponytails, or using curling irons or dyes.
Age. As you age, you grow less hair. It is also thinner and tends to break more easily.

What are the symptoms?
Hair loss can occur as thinning (you may not notice hairs falling out) or as shedding, with clumps of hair falling out. It can be general,you lose hair all over your scalp or focal, which means you lose it in one area only. In inherited hair loss, men generally develop bald spots on the forehead area or on the top of the head, while women have an overall thinning of the hair throughout the scalp.
Because hair is an important part of appearance, hair loss can result in loss of self-esteem and feeling unattractive, especially in women and teens.

How is hair loss diagnosed?
Hair loss is diagnosed through a medical history and physical examination. Your health professional will ask you questions about your hair loss, such as whether your parents have hair loss, when your hair loss started, and how much hair you are losing. He or she will also look at the pattern of your hair loss, examine your scalp, and may tug gently on a few hairs or pull some out.

If the reason for your hair loss is not clear, your health professional may take a sample of your hair or scalp to examine under a microscope, or do a blood test to identify a disease source.

How is it treated?
Some people choose to treat hair loss with medications or surgery, such as hair transplantation. Others choose to wear hairpieces (wigs or toupees) or use different methods of hair styling (dyeing or combing). The approach you use depends on the cause of your hair loss and how you feel about it. Some people feel they need treatment, while others are not as concerned about thinning hair or baldness.

Hair loss that is caused by a controllable factor, such as stress or a medication, is treated by eliminating the cause.

Will my hair grow back?
Whether your hair grows back depends on the cause of your hair loss. If you have inherited hair loss, you would need treatment to regrow your hair. It will not grow back naturally. However, treatment to regrow hair does not work for everyone. If your hair loss is caused by medication, stress, or damage, hair often grows back after the cause is removed, although sometimes treatment may be needed.

beauty and BOTOX

The desire to maintain a youthful appearance drives us to seek treatments that correct or slow down the signs of aging. Wrinkles or lines, drooping eyebrows, down-turned mouth and sagging neck are just some of the typical features associated with aging. As this era has been giving a great pressure for ladies to look good regardless the age, BOTOX has been a great solver for this problem, hence this treatment can reduce deep wrinkles and lines especially in the forehead and around the eyes,most of all it can provide a total facial rejuvenation.

What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a purified preparation of botulinum toxin, obtained from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.It is a non-surgical treatment to treat facial lines, correct asymmetry and reshape the face and neck to achieve a natural aesthetically pleasing and youthful appearance.

Why people opt for BOTOX treatment? To treat facial lines caused by muscle over-activity.
Correct asymmetry of the face.
Reshape the facial features without surgery.
Provide facial rejuvenation of the face and neck and improve self-confidence.

How does BOTOX work?
It causes a temporary paralysis of the treated facial muscles and this allows the lines to soften over a few weeks to months. The duration of action is 3 to 5 days after injection and the paralysis usually lasts for approximately 3 months. Iterate injections lead to gradual weakening of the muscles.

How is it used as TREATMENT?
Clinic procedure. Fine needle injections into the muscles of the affected areas. Topical local anaesthetic cream can be applied 50min before treatment to reduce the pain of the injections.

What are the affects of BOTOX?
Slight burning sensation with injection.Itchiness may be felt the next 3-4 days. Bumps on the skin might occur and, weakness of nearby muscles if BOTOX spreads unexpectedly.

What are the RESTRICTION?
Pregnancy or breast feeding.
Allergy to BOTOX.
Disorder of muscle activity
Avoid if taking certain antibiotics.

A clear understanding of your concerns and careful examination of your face is vital in order to achieve the optimum result of the BOTOX treatment. The type of treatment required to achieve the best result for you will depend on your goals and should be discussed at the time of your consultation.Remember BOTOX treatment will not change you or solve any life crises, but only help you to boost your self-confidence and enjoyment of life.

It is a sacred but unique feeling yet powerful.It creates so much magic.It can change a mr nobody to somebody.There is no special guidance or rules on how to love but love has to be be shown, in order for the other party to feel it.Or else what is the point to love the person in the inside, but do not show it.No matter how you love that some one, hence it has to serve it purpose, make the other party feel happy and belonged. Love the person as how you want to be loved and treated, as it is very unfair if you get all the attention and love from your partner but do not do the same back to him/her.

You do not have to buy expensive gift or say "i love u" 24/7 to show your love.Just use the tips below if you could...

- appreciate your partner for every little single he/she does for you...

- tell your partner how important is he/she in your life

- if you do not have much time to talk to your partner on the phone,then send sms,that is much more fun and meaningful

- surprise your partner with little gift such as his/her fave chocolate, flowers, or fave scent, once in a while, you don't have to wait for occassions to give gift

- praise your partner's charm, how he/she look gorgeous even in the plainest jeans in the world

- write love letters or cards and post mail to your partner even he/she is just working two cubicles after yours

- leave little notes saying "I Love You" in your partner's car, in his/her organizer or even in the bathroom

- say "I Love You" promptly especially, at the time you feel it the most

- always caress your partner as touching is an expression of love

- call your partner at an odd time of the day or midnight and tell how much you love your partner

- when your partner is in need, just pat him/her and confront him/her to say you are there for him/her

- love your partner with all your heart and soul,do not be afraid to love him/her utmostly as you have to love to love

... Love is all about giving and anticipation , there should no be selfishness...
