Preventing your patient from falls in bed

When working in hospices or home care for invalid patients, all caution should be taken that the patient is safe. One of the commonest things that happen with these patients is that they either fall in their sleep or are feeling too much contained in the bed space that they end up falling as they wander away. This especially happens in the morning. So getting a bed rail for these people is of extreme importance.

Advantages of bed rails in hospital bed

Bed rails help prevent patient from falls. Dementia patients love wandering away all the time. So they will wake up and want to go away. As they do so, they might end up falling from the bed to the hard floor causing injuries and this could lead to more time in bed than you had thought it would take them.

Bed railings for seniors prevent wandering away. Picture this: you have a patient who wants to go away from you. Maybe they are having mental problems and they feel entrapped or caged with you. So they are looking for a way out. With rails, they are able to be withheld temporarily before you come and see to it that they do not leave the house.

Rails create independence in toddler who are just leaving the cot and starting to sleep in an adult bed. With the rails, they will not fall and still enjoy the comfort of a bed.

Disadvantages of bed rails

They might lead to entrapment. A condition where when the patient gets entrapped either between the rail spaces or split rails as they try to stand. Entrapment can even cause death or heavy injuries.

At the same time, bed rails especially when they are metallic and bare can cause injuries to seizure patients who are having head tremors. As they get the seizure fits, they will tremble hitting their heads and body parts against the rails and become injured.




The dangers of taking male enhancement pills

As people pop Viagra, Cialis and all forms of quick erect pills, they ignore the fact that these pills affect their cardiac activity. I have read through studies showing that taking Viagra increases your heart rate and all that, yet you still see men with high blood pressure, hypertension taking the blue boner pill.

Could it be because of ignorance or is it that they just want to enjoy the moment and just ignore the repercussions. Interestingly, most of the Viagra pill takers are educated and well to do off so the must have information at their fingers tips. They take the pills just out of desperation to get their libido up.

At the same time, there are those genuine takers who only take it because they do not know the consequences. In this post, I write to them informing them of the Viagra side effects.

They are:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Stomach upset
  • Impaired or blurred vision
  • Injury on the genitalia because of too much hardness

So how do these sex pills work

When you are sexually stimulated, a man produces nitric oxide by the brain to the erectile muscle of the penis. The nitric oxide stimulates enzyme that produces messenger cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).

The cGMP on the other hand causes the penis to dilate so that the tissue fills up with blood causing an erection. When Viagra and Cialis are taken, they cause the cGMP effect to continue for a long time so that more blood flows to the penis.



Will Caffeine in Phenq cause me insomnia

So a user who has been thinking of phenq shoots me an email and they sound desperate for an answer. The email arrives in my inbox on Sunday and I have a tendency of not answering emails on Sundays till Monday since I am with family. But the person seems to be in a fix.

They want to use phenq diet pills but they are worried that they might get all sorts of side effects from using it after reading that it contains a high amount of caffeine.

Caffeine is a good thermogenic fat burner. However, it should also be noted that it could cause a myriad of problems such as insomnia, anxiety as well as red blood shot eyes during the day.

The caffeine in phenq is so much that you are warned against taking the pill after 3.00pm

Other side effects of phenq

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Diarrhea
  • Low appetite. Remember it works mostly by suppressing appetite.

Who should not use phenq

  1. Pregnant women
  2. Underage kids no matter how obese they might be
  3. diabetic people since they need to eat and phenq might make them feel full even when their blood sugar is rock bottom.

Do male Enhancement Pills Help those with erectile Dysfunction

In our earlier post on Ed, we looked at the causes why a healthy man might just find themselves battling with this ugly situation of not pleasing their women simply because they are not able to get or maintain an erection.

In today’s post, we watch a video on whether male enhancement pills do work to improve a man’s erections as well whether you should buy them.

Refuting Dr. Leroy’s answer on male enhancement pills

Now Dr. Leroy says that male enhancement pills do not work to alleviate erectile dysfunction. But has anybody ever told him of aphrodisiacs such as ashwagandha or great sex pill such as testogen. My favourite and best male enhancement pill got to be male extra since I have seen that it is very effective.

It has worked for me and I believe that it should work for you too.

You will find that this pill works by increasing your level of blood going to the phallus.

According to, increasing your testosterone levels is also important if you are to get any enhancement benefits. But why?

  • Testosterone is great in making men horny
  • It gives them more libido
  • Makes their bodies active such that they are able to spring to attention very fast.



What does your bra color say about you?

We already spoke about pumps for moms and today we talk about another topic surrounding the same, bra color.

Apparently, there is much more to bra colors than we think. Personally, I have always preferred black bras because they work so well with almost everything I wear. Furthermore, they do not appear so visible from the outside when worn with brightly colored tops and dresses.  But that is just me. You probably like another color and I am sure you have your own reasons.

I will start with black because it is my favorite. Research shows that a black bra is liked by the ambitious and mysterious women. Yes! You got it, and it sounds like my true definition. These women are go getters and their sense of smile is quite sophisticated. It also signifies elegance. You can never go wrong with a black bra. Whether you wear it with a red, yellow, white or blue panties, it compliments well.

White bras are liked by the fairly innocent women. These women are always on a go slow mood and them like simplicity more than anything else. White bra is also a certified symbol of purity. Al least now you know the color to wear on your wedding day.

A red bra is a sexy bra. It is commonly loved by women whose personalities ooze with passion. From a different angle, the red color also signifies dominance. Individuals with this trait always try to take the lead position in everything they do. From simple household duties to career and bed moments, they are always at the top of their game.

Pink color is feminine and so are pink bras. I am sure you have seen women decorate the bedrooms of their baby girls with pink items (Teddy bears, drawings, blankets, etc). Pink nurtures girlish tendencies. It makes one feel playful, soft and tender. It also symbolizes hope and optimism. Now you know which bra to wear and when to wear it.


How to care for leather shoes

Leather is very durable but without proper care of leather shoes, it shortens the durability and also distorts the general appearance of the shoe. Leather makes the best shoe to wear with walking boot. Lack of conditioning and care makes leather dry out resulting to cracks then falling apart making the shoes unsightly. Coating them with a layer of polish once in a while helps but you also have to keep them clean and protect them from harsh weather conditions.

Most of these products can be purchased at your local shoe repair shops, hardware stores and shoe stores. Make sure to buy good quality products that won’t be harsh on your shoes. Shoe shiners can also help you out if you are afraid of messing them up but for a fee.

For a shoe cleaning session you will need the following items;

  • Gloves
  • Soft shoe brush
  • Newspapers
  • Soft cotton cloth
  • Shoe polish
  • Leather conditioner
  • Weatherproof product (leather protector)

After you are done cleaning, allow them to dry then shin them using a soft cotton cloth like an old t-shirt.


Conditioning leather shoes

Ingredients found in the conditioner moisturize the leather membrane preventing it from cracking which is caused by drying out. When purchasing the conditioner, choose one that is designed for soft leather mainly a natural conditioner which gets fully absorbed by the leather. Synthetic conditioners basically sits on top of the surface of the shoe thus getting wiped off after a while.

Rub in a generous amount moving in circular motions until the whole shoe is covered. Then wipe the excess polish from the shoe and let it set for the leather to absorb a much as it needs for dehydration.


Polishing leather shoes

Shoes polishes exist in three forms: liquid, pastes or creams. Liquid polishes have the shortest durability and also in limited colors while the pastes last longer but are really messy to work with. So basically opt for creams because they have the longest durability, are available in many colors and are really easy to work with. Select the appropriate color for your leather shoes then apply a little amount to see whether it matches. If it does, rub in some more till the whole shoe is covered and move to the next. Allow it to fully dry then buff using a cloth or soft brush to shine.


Protecting leather shoes

Weatherproofing leather shoes generally protect them from water and other harmful elements which break down the leather shortening its durability. Beeswax products and spray protectants are ideal for protecting the leather from mild or moderate wet conditions and dirt.

Why am I struggling with Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile Dsyfunction (ED) is the worst condition that I would wish on my worst man enemy. It makes you feel worthless and useless to your wife.

Causes of ED

Doctors say that ED can be caused by various issues such as injury on your private parts, low testosterone levels or even emotional stress.

Whatever the cause, ED can break marriages apart and even lead to suicide on the part of the victim.

For one, you feel as though the whole world is against you. Whether you were talkative and chatty, you find yourself keeping mum like someone whose tongue has been split. Why?

It steals off your dignity and that is why I would wish no enemy of mine to be faced by the condition.

ED is self diagnoseable according to Gstatic. You do not need to go for imaging. No, you can tell that your dong is not rising to the occasion. Or maybe its rise is feeble and flabby.

So, how can it be treated?

Doctors say that ED caused by low testosterone levels can be averted by using certain medicine such as tribulus terrestris and d aspartic acid. A study reported by showed that men with low testostene levels and ED as one of the symptoms were healed after taking d aspartic acid and tribulus terrestris extracts.

Emotional stress

Be it domestic or work related, stress can make a man impotent and worthless down there. But how? Stress is caused by ahormone called cortisol. Now cortisol and testosterone are never friends. They are in constant fight. So, if cortisol goes up, testosterone goes down.

Testosterone is the sex hormone in men and helps them erect longer and harder. It is also responsible for their manly looks.


Sleep has been found to be a cure for many psychological and even physical ailments. When asleep you body is able to relax, recharge and get to optimal levels. During the day, you work out and this leads to lowered hormone levels. When asleep on the other hand, your hormones go their normal level.


Eating foods rich in magnesium, zinc and boron will help in controlling ED

Lower anxiety levels

Men with ED were also found to be very anxious during sex. They wanted to have a hard on but when it didn’t happen, they felt weak and unworthy and this led to emotional stress. And as such, recovering from ED would require that you stop being anxious.

Alcohol and drug abstinence

According to mayoclinic, drug abuse could lead to ED. So avoid them.


Acne: What you Need to Know About this Skin Condition and How to Treat It

What is Acne?

Acne is one of the most devastating skin conditions.  It is characterized by painful inflammations that mainly attack teenagers and adults. In most victims, it begins during adolescence and prolongs up to many years in adulthood.

About 90% of adolescents develop acne across the world.

Although the rate at which the disease manifests in men and women is almost the same during teenage years, more women continue to experience the condition until they get into their 40’s. The neck, face, back and upper arms are the main target areas of acne pimples.

What Causes Acne?

The pathogenesis of acne is linked to increased production of sebum in the human skin.  When excess sebum accumulates in the skin pores or hair follicles it leads to the formation of comedone.

Once bacterial action occurs in the sebaceous glands, it triggers the release of enzymes that cause an inflammatory response. Further research shows that there are numerous factors that can contribute to the formation of acne pimples. The main ones include are lifestyle choices and beauty products.


Basic factors such as the food we eat, exercises and water consumption are lifestyle choices that influence the condition of the skin. Excess proteins and oily foods can damage the condition of the skin. This is true especially for individuals with sensitive skin. Overdoing foods such as eggs can lead to severe breakouts. Exercises and consumption of enough water contributes to healthier skin.

How to Treat Acne?

Dermatologists advise people with acne-prone skin to combine relevant treatment methods with a healthy lifestyle. For example, eating foods that are rich in fruits and vegetables and drinking enough water daily can be very helpful. The most common treatment methods for acne include; use of skin care products such as healing clays, creams and essential oils, topical retinoids and antibiotics, and hormonal therapies.

Clays and creams are used to treat mild acne.
