Hi there!

 

During the last six months Ila has been going
through a lot of stress, and suffering from anxiety.
Her mother was seriously ill and dying, and her
marriage was falling apart.

It was impossible for her to sleep at nights any
more, and during the days she was struggling
to get by and survive.

Her one and only consolation was food.
Utterly confused she kept on eating …… eating
anything, especially sweets    and the weight
was piling on.

It’s so unbelievable how much food I can eat
in a day she thought one evening.
She started feeling ashamed of herself, and awfully
guilty for eating so much.

Then suddenly she realized that there were many
advantages being overweight.
For starters, she felt protected, and not so vulnerable,
defenseless and exposed any more.

In human history, being fat was always a sign 
of prosperity and affluence.
Nowadays, being fat is considered a great health
danger.
But latest research reveals that being moderately
overweight is useful and beneficial for you in
many ways.

According to these latest studies, although being
highly overweight or obese you are at a higher risk
of 
developing certain chronic diseases, at the same
time, being moderately overweight you will
enjoy a longer life.

It all comes down to your genetic make-up, how
much physically active you are in your daily life,
your diet habits, and certainly it depends on your
overall lifestyle, 
how healthy or unhealthy it is.

There are numerous health enhancements you 
will enjoy if you are moderately overweight.
Some of the most unexpected benefits are the
following:

a)     Stronger Immune System

Fat around the various body organs interacts
and 
aids the immune system’s response.
Damaged tissue is repaired rapidly and
heals better.

b)     Faster Recovery Time

When you are ill your body needs much more
energy to rebuild and cure.
Fat tissue provides the extra energy needed
to recover as quickly as possible.

c)     Protection Against Senility

Being overweight will defend against any mental
disorders and brain deterioration.

d)     Alleviation Of Arthritis

Abdominal fat helps prevent the onset and
consequent attacks of chronic arthritis.

e)     Delayed Ejaculation For Men

Abdominal fat carries female hormones that
inhibit the male orgasm, giving you an extra
eight ( 8 ) minutes.

f)     Overall Body Protection

support all important organs in the event of
various accidents.

Having extra fat around the body is much more
important for older adults.
Plentiful studies during the last years have revealed
that being overweight after the age of fifty (50 ),
offers serious protective effects against all

illnesses.

Also, being overweight is particularly beneficial
and guarding against any bone problems, as well as
assisting with better recovery should any health
trouble arises.

In addition, if you are a menopausal woman,
if you have excess fat all over your body, you will also
have higher levels of estrogen circulating in your
blood;    because estrogen is produced and stored
in the fat tissue.
This can be advantageous in the alleviation,
relief and delay of the menopausal symptoms.

Therefore, for any person above the age of fifty
it is absolutely crucial not to restrict his/her
nutrition in any way in order to lose weight;
because keeping your weight up, you will definitely
increase your chances for a healthier and 
longer life.
Weight loss after that age signifies the general
decline of the individual.

Anhydrous!

 

Hi there!

 

For the last eight months she has been going
through a difficult and very stressful divorce.
She was feeling worried, continuously tense
and extremely scared of the future.

Once again she woke up in the middle of the
night totally distressed.
She started tossing and turning  —  and the
time was passing without her being able to go
back to sleep again.

For some time now she has been feeling complete
discomfort in her private parts.
As the time was going she found out that her
vulvae had become dry as a bone.

It’s unbearable.   I can’t go to my gym anymore,
I can’t walk properly, I can’t sleep at night ……..
I must get some
advice as soon as possible ,
she thought.

And so she did, although she was feeling extremely
embarrassed to discuss this delicate issue…………

Vaginal dryness is the quiet plague.
It is the widespread problem most women
hesitate to discuss with anyone because they
feel nervous, afraid and embarrassed.

It can affect any woman between the ages
of
18 to 45 years for various reasons;
but 
it is much more prevalent in women above
the age of 45 years old, when female hormones
start declining and menopause usually starts.

According to surveys an average of 55% or more
of all menopausal women have experienced
vaginal dryness.
Unfortunately this is an extremely uncomfortable,
painful, frustrating and depressing condition,
which needs to be handled properly.
