  • Botox Risks

Botox injections have a loyal following, from people seeking relief for severe eye blinking to those wanting to smooth out wrinkles. While Botox provides many benefits, it is important to remember there are some risks. Some of the temporary side effect include droopy eyelidor facial muscles, headaches, nausea, and flu-like symptoms that can last for up to a month. As with any medical procedure, the Harvard Women's Health Watch system suggests you make sure to select a qualified doctor who regularly treats patients with Botox.

  • Tea Health

A cup of tea can hit the spot on a chilly day, and can also help lower your cholesterol. Studies indicate that tea may reduce LDL Cholesterol, the "bad cholesterol" and that's not all. Tea has been credited for decreasing DNA damage in smokers, and has been linked with a 60% decrease in Rectal Cancer among women. It is believed that the anti-oxidant properties of tea flavenoids are the key healthy ingredient for this beverage.

  • Walk for Heart

A study involving over 70,000 middle-aged and older women showed that the more they walked, the healthier their hearts were. The study in the New England Journal of Medicine states that walking helps counter obesity, lower blood pressure in some people and reduces stress. Walking also helps control cholesterol levels. If you are current heart patient, talk to your doctor first, but otherwise, get your sneakers on and take a hike.
