Senior Health – Making Sure Seniors Are Protected

Hass Mohammed asked:

Senior health is far more volatile than most of us would like to admit.  Whether you are a senior citizen yourself or you have one you want to take care of, finding proper protection in old age is vitally important to the protection of life in general.

The easiest way to get protection is to find a health insurance plan that will accommodate all of the senior’s needs and more. The information below will show you how to go about doing that so you can make sure your health or the health of someone you love is protected at all times.

One of the first things you need to think about as a senior is what you will likely need the senior health insurance for.  Some policyholders need their plans to cover doctor’s visits extensively, emergencies, and others need to get good deals on prescription drugs.



Assess your needs so that you may be able to find a policy that is most fitting for them. Chances are you will opt for some kind of Medicare plan. When you do, you can look into supplemental insurance plans to cover those special needs.  You should be able to setup an affordable insurance plan that works for you.

When you have an idea of the kind of plan you want to get, the next thing you need to do is generate some quotes online so you can see how much money you may have to pay.  Then you can get the policy right there so that you are protected as soon as possible.

You can change supplement plans or even insurance companies if you find a better deal out there. Just make sure you check everything before you sign up so that you know you are getting the coverage you need.

Senior health may be a little more fragile than the health of younger generations, but that does not make it harder to insure.  There are plenty of insurance providers out there that are willing to work with seniors, even those on a fixed budget.

You should never assume that you are out of options for your insurance plan because there is always a new one out there to take into consideration. With a little bit of research, you should be able to find a plan that is tailor fit to your needs.  You can reap the benefits of your protection after that.

Resveratrol is cool

Michael Jozefiak asked:

RESVERATROL is the latest ‘cool’ discovery in a growing list
of natural antioxidant chemicals produced by our indispensable
neighbours on this planet, plants. Let’s hear it for the plants! When will
we learn that one cannot beat Nature’s systems, evolved over billions of
years, when it comes to fighting disease. Everything wants to be at the
top of the evolutionary pile, to guarantee survival of the species and
survival requires combat, in one way or another.

When humans are well nourished, both physically and spiritually (and I
don’t necessarily mean religion), we can survive most attacks from
invading micro-organisms, but when we are run down we seem to
succumb easily.



And so too with plants. Resveratrol in the grape (Vitis vinifera) is
found in the roots, seeds & stalks but much higher concentrations are
found in the skin of the grape, which protects it against fungal and
micro-organism attacks. Resveratrol is found in much higher quantities in
red wine than in white, due to there being not much if it in the white skins,
which are discarded before vinification; I wonder whether Bacchus
preferred red or white wine?! Maybe he didn’t care!


Other food sources of resveratrol include peanuts and mulberries and it
is found in quite large amounts in the dried roots & stems of the
Japanese Knotweed (Poligonium cuspidatum), obtainable mainly
through health stores. The Japanese Knotweed is commonly used, in
traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine, as a tonic for the circulation.

Peanuts contain around 1 micrograms per gram and red grapes about 80
but a glass of red wine storms into the lead with a whopping 600-700
micrograms! That should expunge any guilt next time you visit your wine
shop! “Just following doctor’s orders”!



In fact, the relatively high wine intake amongst the French seems to
reduce incidences of cardiac disease, despite their love of good food.
Though this French Paradox seems to have some admirable health
benefits, it does not seem to protect them against liver disease, which
may be bad news for all of you about to fill up your third glass this
evening. The perceived wisdom amongst scientists who have studied
the beneficial effects of resveratrol say that two glasses daily are
optimum. I can now see people rushing out to buy 1/2 litre glasses – no,
that’s cheating! Ah, what the heck, please yourselves!

Resveratrol also has antiproliferative actions, inhibiting cancer cell and
tumour growth, and is involved in inhibiting an important enzyme in
tumour growth. This clever little compound also reduces deposition of plaques on
blood vessels, stimulates the immune system in fighting cancer, inhibits
oxidisation of LDL-Cholesterol and, if that were not enough, also is a
good anti-inflammatory. Research continues and more beneficial
characteristics are being discovered daily.

ANTI AGING – The Holy Grail

Is there no end to what Resveratrol can do! As well as being a powerful
antioxidant it seem that there is great interest in it’s anti-aging antioxidant
properties. According to an article in The Times. “…”It works by
binding to a class of proteins called sirtuins which regulate the
repair of cells and dramatically boosts their efficiency. Studies have
shown that it has an impressive anti-inflammatory action which, in
animals, has delayed the process of ageing and increased lifespan by up
to 50%.” Just before you rush out to stock up with your favourite
‘Chateau Colostomy’, I would like to point out that tests on mice, fed a
reduced carbohydrate diet, also showed an increase in life span of 50%! The
report doesn’t say if red wine was part of their diet!!

At the end of the day, to my way of thinking, as with everything in Life
moderation is the name of the game. Enjoy a glass or two with your
evening meal while your chat with your family and catch up on
everybody’s daily events. Eat as much organic fruit & vegetables as you
can, take organic food supplements, exercise in moderation and learn to
be at peace with, and love, yourself. If you don’t love yourself, how can
you love anyone else?

Arthritis – A Deadly Disease

Navodita Maurice asked:

Arthritis is the disease basically associated with the old people but the children may be affected by this disease.  People of the age group 65 are mostly affected by arthritis in North America and they together constitute 70% of the total population.

Women are at the major risk of getting affected by arthritis as compared to the men and this disease is more prevalent in the women of all ethnic races and cultures.  According to an estimate about 46 million of people USA are suffering from this disease and the number increases every year.
About one million people are admitted to the hospital just because of the problems they face because of arthritis.


All the persons suffering from arthritis complain the problem of extreme pain.  The pain may be different according to the location and the individual.

Rheumatoid arthritis is very worse in the morning and is characterized by stiffness.  In the earlier stages the symptoms cannot be easily recognized.

In the old individuals and the children pain may not be the major diagnostic feature as the old people move little and the children refuse to move the limb when it is paining.
Important features of arthritis include speed and time of onset, pattern of joint movement, symmetry of symptoms, early morning stiffness, locking with inactivity, tenderness and other systemic factors.

Physical examination and the radiography may be helpful in the diagnosis of the disease.  Arthritis has been known from prehistoric times.

Extra articular features of arthritis or joint disease include cutaneous nodules, oedema, ocular inflammation, diarrhea, bursitis, lymphadenopathy and urethritis. Blood tests indicate the presence of rheumatoid factor, antinuclear factor (ANF) and extractable nuclear antigen.


Malady of Arthritis

In USA arthritis is the major cause of disability among the individuals and 20 million people are dependent upon the doctors and the physicians for their survival.

It has been found that the 50% of an individual’s salary who is suffering from arthritis is lost in the treatment of arthritis.   The ability of a person to remain active is lost completely.
Some also suffer from obesity, high cholesterol and risk of heart disease. Depression may also be found in such individuals.


Indications of Arthritis

Apart from the type of arthritis the common symptoms are pain, joint stiffness and swelling and a persisting pain around the joints.
Other symptoms include inability to walk and move hands, malaise and feeling of tiredness, fever, weight loss, poor sleep, muscle ache, tenderness and difficulty in moving the joints.

Types of Arthritis


Rheumatoid Arthritis

It is a disorder where the body starts destroying its own tissues for some unknown reasons.
The attack is not only restricted to the joints but also to other parts of the body.

The major damage is caused to the lining of the joints and the cartilage resulting in the erosion of two opposing bones.

The joints of the fingers, knee, wrists and elbows are affected in the rheumatoid arthritis.

The disease is having symmetry and causes severe deformity in few years.
It basically affects the people of age group 20 or more.
This disorder in children causes pain, fever, skin rashes and limitations on the day to day activities.
Actual cause rheumatoid arthritis is not known till present but the scientists are very actively engaged in finding out the treatments as possible for this disorder.

The drugs that are administered against rheumatoid arthritis include intravenous injections of either corticosteroids or monoclonal antibodies.

Remicade is a drug which is presently being used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and can be effective for short term only.

Surgery can be done to replace the affected joint but there is no complete cure of the disorder.

Other dangerous symptoms can also develop in later stages which include heart problems, gait abnormality and skin nodules.



It affects the larger joints of the body like that of the back, hip or the knees.
This is generally the result of the wear and tear of the joints.
It begins in the cartilage and results in the erosion of two opposing bones.
It starts with a minor pain which is experiences while walking and the pain becomes continuous during the night.

The pain causes hindrance in the daily activity of the individual. 
It is basically a disorder very common among the old people especially the women of the age group 65.

Osteoarthritis cannot be cured but can be prevented from becoming worse. Weight loss is the most common feature of this disease.

Physical therapy of the joints may be helpful in getting some relief.  Joint replacement may be of little help.

Severe Arthritis

Arthritis is a dangerous disease and in more intense cases it can result in severe deformities.  
The majority of the individuals suffering from the rheumatoid arthritis have deformed fingers.
The deformity may also be seen in the wrist joint so it cannot be moved properly.

Other problems include appearance of carpal tunnel syndrome due to nerve entrapment.
In later cases the sensation of the fingers also gets lost.

Infectious arthritis is another form of severe arthritis.  It is characterized by appearance of sudden chills, fever and joint pain. This condition may be caused by bacteria. 
This disease can be easily diagnosed and prevented from becoming intense.

Psoriasis is another form of arthritis.  In this case first the patient develops skin problems followed by arthritis.
Symptoms include joint pain, stiffness and swelling. There is no cure for this disease and this occurs on a small scale.

Lupus is a collagen vascular disorder that can be frequently found associated with arthritis. 
The symptoms of lupus include skin rash, extreme photosensitivity, hair loss, kidney problems, lung fibrosis and constant joint pain.

Another problem that has been found associated with arthritis is gout which arises due to the deposition of uric acid crystals in the joints leading to inflammation.  The joints lose their activity and often swell.



Rheumatoid and the osteoarthritis are not curable but one can prevent himself from being affected by physical therapy, losing weight and eating healthy.

The individuals who feel pain in the joints must immediately consult the physicians so that the treatment can be started as soon as possible in order to prevent the disorder from becoming intense.



Once arthritis is diagnosed treatments are available for a number of symptoms that are frequently experienced.

Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis are not curable. 
The treatments used against them can help in relieving pain for a short period but complete relief is not possible.

Treatments include physical therapy, changing the lifestyle, orthopedic bracing, medications and dietary supplements.

Arthroplasty also called joint replacement surgery can also be performed. Physical exercise has given better results in treatment of arthritis.



Physicians generally start the treatment with the use of drugs. 
The first choice of drugs is the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Ibuprofen and tramadol are the general pain killers which are basically used.

The drugs although effective are also associated with a number of side-effects like the abdominal pain, bleeding, liver and kidney damage and ulcers.

The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs cannot be used for prolonged periods without the prescription of the physician.

Corticosteroids are presently being used for the treatment of arthritis.  They help in reducing the inflammation and also prevent the joint damage.

Corticosteroids are associated with a number of side effects like ulcers, hypertension, cataracts, diabetes, skin bruising, and weight gain. Disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) is generally used for the treatment for the rheumatoid arthritis as they are helpful in preventing the joint damage.

The commonly used DMARDs are methotrexate, hydrochloroquineand minocycline.
They are also having many side effects in the form of liver and kidney damage, bone marrow suppression and possibility of other infections.

Immunosuppressants like cyclosporine and cyclophosphamide can be taken for getting relief from inflammation.
These drugs make an individual more prone to other infections.

Tumor necrosis factor inhibitors have been used for getting relief from inflammation and joint pain.
They are also having some side effects as a person becomes susceptible to the risk of heart disease and other infections.

Occupational therapy and the physical therapy can help the people suffering from arthritis.

Physical therapy can teach an affected individual how to relax the limb without damaging the joints.  It can also provide splint and braces for the joints.

Physical therapy also teaches how to drive the car, take bath and perform household work.

Occupational therapy teaches how to reduce on the joints and perform the daily activities. 

Physical therapy also makes use of ice, heating pads and ultrasound guided massage therapy.
Both these therapies help an individual to remain free from some of the difficulties of arthritis. 
It can be concluded that arthritis is a very painful disease affecting the joints and there no complete cure for it only one can practice the use of physical and occupational therapy.

Drugs can be helpful with treatment of arthritis but not without at risk and make an individual more prone to other infections.   .
