Incredible Facts to Note on Human Growth Hormone A fact that is worth stating is that some people use human growth hormone with the purpose that it will keep them feeling and looking youthful but according to health experts state that these claims are unfounded and if used they can be harmful. An obvious fact is that human growth hormone is natural hormone produced by the body by the pituitary gland and it is responsible for growth in children by helping to regulation the body composition, fluids in the body, the growth of muscle and bones, the metabolism of fat and sugar and even affects the function of the heart but it can also be synthetically produced in factories as a part of prescription drugs and in other products. According to history the hormone was discovered in 1985 and approved for mass production for specific uses in children and adults and the hormone is approved for curing short stature caused by unknown causes and poor growth because of many medical causes such as Turner’s syndrome that is a genetic disorder that interferes with a girl’s development and Prader-Willi syndrome which is a rare genetic disease that causes poor muscle tone, low amounts of sex hormones and a constant hunger feeling. Other disease that can be cured by human growth hormone is chronic kidney insufficiency, the deficiency of human growth hormone and children that are born with a small weight for their gestational age. Its uses in adults include it’s used in treating short bowel syndrome which is a condition in which nutrients are not absorbed properly because of a severe intestinal disease or the surgical excision of a large part of the ileum. The other adult uses for the hormone include the treatment of human growth hormone deficiency due to rare tumors of the pituitary and muscle-wasting associated with HIV/AIDS. There are some uses of human growth hormone that are not scientifically approved such as using the hormone along with performance-enhancing drugs such as anabolic steroids so that they can build muscle and improve athletic performance but this effect has no scientific evidence. Due to the fact that the human growth hormone normally decreases with age and this belief that the hormone has anti-aging effects and some anti-aging experts have suspected that human growth hormone products can be used to reverse age-related bodily deterioration. Some people get injectable human growth hormone from physicians that prescribe it for uses that are not medically approved and through other channels like internet pharmacies, anti-aging websites and clinics. A known fact is that other people purchase human growth products or products that claim to boost the production the body’s own human growth hormone that come in the form of sprays and pills and companies that market these products claim that they can turn back the aging process, build muscle, reduce fat and restore the colour of hair and its color.A Quick Overlook of Resources – Your Cheatsheet

High Deductible Vs Low Deductible – How to Choose?

Note: If you need definitions of health insurance related terms, simply click “Free PA Quotes” at the end of this article.

The average consumer tends to assume that low deductible health plans (LDHP) are more benefit rich then their high deductible (HDHP) counterpart. You may be surprised to find that in most cases, both forms of health coverage are equally comprehensive. It is important to consider your individual situation to determine what is ultimately best for you. Knowing the relative strengths and weaknesses of each type of plan will put you in optimum position to maximize savings.

Since becoming a licensed agent, I have worked with a large array of prospective customers who, for a lack of better words, love their health plan. That is aside from just one thing – the cost. Usually, the story goes something like this:

“I love my health plan; there is no deductible, I only pay $10 to see the doctor, my labs don’t cost me anything, if I go into the emergency room it only costs me $50, and if I go into the hospital – I only pay $200. If I only have one issue, it is a bit expensive at $850 a month.”

The reason why some consumers have a virtual love affair with their health plan (in spite of the cost) is they feel that their health plan is in some form, the envy of those around them. This is little more then a false perception about one plan being better then another.

The reason why this perception exists is that HDHP’s tend to receive the bulk of consumer complaints. Are the complaints justified? Let’s look a little bit closer…

Usually, the HDHP story goes something like this; “The other day, my son fell off the swing. We were concerned that he broke his arm and decided to take him to the emergency room. As it turns out, it was little more then a deep bruise. Unfortunately, we just got the bill in the mail and we had to fork out $250. Do you believe that, what’s the point in having insurance if I still have to pay so much money? I didn’t know a bruise could be so expensive.

In another case, we might hear of a friend who has to pay $1500 dollars for an MRI – OUCH! But it gets worse. In the event that they have to use their insurance again, they still would have to pay $1000 out of pocket before reaching their annual deductible. To add insult to injury, even after they reach their high deductible, they still have to pay 20% coinsurance for who knows how long…and on and on it goes…

When the proud owner of a low deductible health plan hears of such horror stories, they wipe their brow and with a sigh, write another $850 check for this month’s premium.

But does the seemingly enviable low deductible policy holder have cause to feel the way they do? When you take …

Detox Diet Recipes- Learn A Better Way

One diet trend that is all over TV, radio and the web is detoxification.  There are many selling this supplement or that detox diet plan that is supposed to ‘clean out’ the impacted matter in your colon.  Their theory is that this causes health issues, and contributes to your belly fat.

Truly, detox diet recipes don’t help you lose weight, and they can be dangerous.  You really don’t have ‘impacted’ matter in your colon – ask anyone who has had a colonoscopy.  This is a myth that is what I call ‘sham science’.  It sounds good and reasonable, but is just not true.

Your quickest way to weight loss is to enroll in a reasonable and proven diet program that does not put your body in danger.  You’ll lose weight fast and won’t have to eat all of the unpleasant foods and fluids that are part of typical detox diet recipes.

Try one of the new internet-based diet plans instead.  You’ll get step-by-step instructions for diets that are proven to work, without starving or eating too much of any one food.  Try one of these plans instead of a potentially dangerous and avoid the bogus claims made by those in the ‘detox’ diet area.
