For most people who snore, the biggest concern that accompanies it is how it will affect their partner’s sleep. If you’re well-read on health issues, or even just a very cautious person, you may have also considered that your snoring could be a signal of an underlying issue, such as sleep apnea. What you may not have considered is the link between snoring and your physical fitness, but research suggests that the two are more closely related than you might imagine.
Most women will begin menopause in their late 40s or early 50s. The process will usually last for several years, during which time the majority of women will experience symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats, and fatigue. Every woman’s journey through menopause will be personal and unique, but there are some common factors and areas of significant overlap, so today we’re going to look at some of the best ways to manage menopause.
If you sleep next to someone who snores, you know exactly how frustrating it can get in the long run. We can all handle being kept awake or woken up by the occasional noise, but going to bed every evening facing the threat of another sleepless night is not sustainable. Since a good night’s sleep is crucial for your mental and emotional health, this is an issue that can quickly become explosive after a few nights of being kept up. For this reason, we have put together a few tips to help you cope with a partner who snores.
Ahead of International Men’s Health Week, which kicks off on the 11th of June, we are going to look at men’s attitudes towards their health. There is a longstanding stereotype that men don’t like to go to the doctor. Many believe this is why women tend to be healthier, and have longer life expectancies than men. There are of course other biological and environmental factors that come into play, but closely monitoring your health is one of the best ways to improve it. So is there any truth to this, or is it just an outdated generalisation?
We all know how rough we can feel after having just a single night of bad sleep. It’s harder to stay focused, easier to get annoyed, and even the simplest of actions can seem like a huge chore. If we sleep poorly for a longer period of time, say a whole week, then these symptoms just get worse and worse. But poor sleep can do a lot more to us than making us tired or cranky. In fact, sleeping patterns can be directly linked to our mental and physical health in many different ways.
Premature ejaculation is when a man ejaculates within the first few minutes of sexual contact. While most men will experience this at some point in their lives, some men experience it every time they have sex. Both biological and psychological causes can be the cause of premature ejaculation. In this blog, we will examine the causes of premature ejaculation, as well as the treatment options available.
Urinary incontinence is the loss of control over your bladder. It can range from leaking small amounts of urine when laughing or sneezing, to a sudden, overwhelming need to urinate that can result in accidents. In this blog, we’re going to look at some of the risks and symptoms of urinary incontinence, and tips to prevent it.
Physiotherapy is one of the best and most effective treatments for urinary incontinence. Not only is it a low-risk solution, but a good physiotherapist can help you retrain your bladder and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles to help resolve the problem.
