Controlling Weight After 50

Written by
Most people over 50 and especially women, struggle more with weight gain than when they were younger.
Prevent Blindness is the nation's leading volunteer eye health and safety organization dedicated to fighting blindness and saving sight. This month of August, observe Children's Eye Health and Safety Month along with Prevent Blindness America. 
Check out the basic problems if you suspect your child has a vision concern. Really, you simply can't just look into a child's eyes to see if anything is wrong. Having your child's eyes checked is something just as important as a yearly physical checkup when your child starts school this school year. 
This special eye health and safety organization has been helping in this area for literally decades, founded in 1908, supporting the importance of eye health. It rallys for the prevention of blindness through numerous extensive programs based on community services, public education and ongoing research. With all the new advances in medicine in this area, it seeks to advance eye health relating to more practical services to the public such as vision screening and educational projects for the detection of vision problems in young children and adults. 
Speakers and educational materials are made available to include parents of elementary school children, senior citizens, nurses, and agricultural workers. Special services related to more recent treatments and available facilities, research findings, and medical knowledge in eye health care, and eye safety are available upon request. The Prevent Blindness Program specifically provides health professionals and health service groups with eye care resource materials and educational programs related to services in local communities. Additionally the group conducts relevant studies on the causes of blindness and funds laboratory and clinical research projects related to the prevention of blindness. 
As a nutritionist I also promote healthy eating for everyone to insure overall good health, and usually when you are eating for that reason, your eyes also benefit. The basis of good health, always starts with what you eat everyday. Here are some specialized foods to include for eye health, whether for children or adults! Eat for your health and eat to maintain you and your child's vision!

Self-Respect is Taking Care of Yourself

Written by
Many women don't feel as they deserve the time to take care of themselves, especially when their children are young. They constantly put their children's needs over their own.
