The best way of course is to try to prevent cancer from even occurring and the first thing to do is to change to a healthier lifestyle.

Most health experts commonly agree that emotions does have a profound effect on health with some even claiming that developing a sense of joie de vivre is important in maintaining an effective and strong immune system.

Here are guides on how to change your lifestyle for prevention and even recovering from the devastating cancer disease.

o Positive thinking

Time and time again, it has been proven that attitude is an important factor in the healing process. Patients who has a positive outlook usually recover more rapidly compared to those who are depresses, negative and always ridden with anxiety.

o Relaxation

Take some time out for yourself and find some enjoyable things to do such as baking or gardening. Adopting some relaxation techniques such as meditation and autosuggestion can also help greatly to bring out the best in us and in maintaining a positive state of mind.

o Brighten up your living quarters

A bright and well-ventilated apartment or house can do wonders to the mood and help in stimulating the lymphatic and immune systems.

o Exercise

Make time for exercise as regular exercise not only help protect against cancer, it is also beneficial for prevention of other ailments such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, obesity, osteoporosis, back pain and non insulin-dependent diabetes. The ideal exercise should be a minimum of 20-30 minutes of active exercise up to 3 or more times per week.

o Stop smoking

It is common knowledge that smoking is bad for health so stop smoking if you are addicted to cigarettes.

o Saunas

Saunas are really beneficial for patients suffering from arthritis and cancer as saunas can help to eliminate a large number of toxins from our body through perspiration. If possible, take at least 2 sauna baths per week.

Lifestyle for Leisure and Pleasure

Swinger lifestyle was a part of the American society, and came into its peak during the Second World War. The major part of the society following this was pilots as it was not possible for them and their wives to accompany them on every posting.

Earlier, swinger advertisements were published in magazines and newspapers, from where people gathered information about this lifestyle.

Now, due to e-browsing one can easily involve himself in such societies without rendering here and there. There are many online sites which are there to help one. Even one can gather a lot more knowledge and engage themselves in such pleasurable experiences.

Lifestyle Pharmaceuticals The New Wave of Recreational Drugs

Thirty or forty years ago, “recreational drug” meant something illicit that was probably concocted in a secret lab somewhere. Something illicit like LSD, heroin or cocaine. Timothy Leary in his wildest dreams could never imagine a world in which recreational drugs were marketed with multi-million-dollar advertising campaigns and available to order online as easily as the latest bestseller on Amazon. If only Timbo had lived a few years longer…

More and more recreational drug users are choosing their chemical diversions not from a street menu, but from an array of well-known brands like Ambien, Xanax, Vicodin and Viagra (no, I’m not kidding about the last one).

The National Institute on Drug Abuse says that approximately 20 percent of the US population age 12 and over has used prescription drugs for non-medical use. According to Nora Volkow, The Institute’s Director, “While we do not yet understand all of the reasons for the increasing abuse of prescription drugs, we do know that accessibility is likely a contributing factor.” The rise of online pharmacies dispensing medications without a prescription means that even minors are able to order the medications easily over the Internet.

As reported by Body-Philosophy a few weeks back, Ritalin and Adderall, intended to treat ADD, are being used by college students hoping to improve their SAT scores or ace their finals. And of course painkillers like Vicodin and OxyContin have been famously abused by a litany of celebrities including former First Lady Betty Ford and talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.

But painkillers are old hat! These days, trendy abusers in the know are choosing Xanax, Ambien and Viagra to take the edge off modern life.

Xanax: A Quaalude for our times. Developed as an alternative to Valium, alprazolam, branded as Xanax, is widely prescribed as a sedative, particularly to reduce anxiety and panic attacks. Xanax works by depressing the central nervous system, enhancing the effects of a chemical in the brain that slows down the firing of neurons and reduces brain activity.

It takes the scratchy edge off the day and leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy, inside and out. I have friends who take it before long plane journeys to eliminate air travel jitters. And if you need to get a good night’s sleep after a stressful afternoon and before an even more stressful morning meeting, Xanax is like a couple of top-shelf margaritas without the salt or the hangover. Of course, there’s a downside too.

Xanax can be addictive, and continued high doses can cause a reaction called rebound anxiety. When heavy users stop taking Xanax, they may experience the same or more severe symptoms than before, such as changes in mood, anxiety or sleep. Rebound anxiety is usually a result of abrupt discontinuation – tapering off slowly is less likely to cause these symptoms.

Xanax is sometimes used in combination with other harder drugs to relieve the panic or distress generated by psychedelics such as LSD and also to promote sleep in the “come-down” period following the use of uppers like cocaine and amphetamines. It is also often used by heroin addicts to suppress withdrawal symptoms, because in conjunction with methadone, Xanax produces a high similar to heroin. People can overdose on Xanax alone, although usually they get into trouble by mixing it with other drugs or alcohol, says Dr. Richard Saini, medical director of the chemical-dependency unit for Orlando Regional Healthcare in Florida.
