Convenience or habbit?

We have it made these days, with all of the conveniences our grandparents couldn’t even dream of!

But with cell phones, overnight delivery, texting and the like, it seems the latest time-saving technology increases expectations and makes us busier than we were before we had all these “conveniences.”

AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM DYSFUNCTION

Posted on March 3, 2014

 

AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM,(ANS) is an involuntary division of the nervous system that functions to regulate the basic organ processes needed for the maintenance of normal bodily functions.

Our homeostatis is effected controlled by autonomic nervous sytem, immune system and endocrine system. If one of these is out of balance, we become vulnerable to disease.

Lifestyle factors such as staying up late at night, stress and hormone imbalance can lead to autonomic nervous system dysfunction (Dysautonomia).

DVT AND FLYING

What is DVT and how does it relate to flying?

Deep Vein Thrombosis, DVT is a condition in which a blood clot or ‘thrombus’ forms in the deep veins of the legs.

 

 

DVT can result in no symptoms, or it can cause swelling and pain in the affected leg, for example, pain in the calf when the foot is flexed upwards. 

An ongoing investigation by the World Health Organization (WHO) — WHO Research Into Global Hazards of Travel (WRIGHT) Project on Air Travel and Venous Thromboembolism — has found that the risk of DVT approximately doubles after a long-haul flight (more than 4 hours). This increased risk also applies to other forms of travel (such as car, bus or train) where people are exposed to prolonged seated immobility. The risk increases with the duration of travel and with multiple flights within a short period.

 

Small or long travel flights can leave negative stress build up in between the joints and the spine. Leaving the muscles to tighten up and shoulder pain and back pain to raise up. DVT is another condition that should not be taken lightly.Try these simple stretches in between your flight and always remember to go for a walk down the aisles to stretch your legs.
