When Period Pain is Not Normal

DISCLAIMER: This is an article about endometriosis. There are some detailed stories of my experience with endometriosis in this article. I felt that this needed to be an article with a certain amount of honesty and transparency in order to bring about greater awareness of this disorder and for readers to have a better understanding. I recommend to readers who may not be comfortable with the use of certain medical terms, at times gory descriptive language or for those who just don't want to get to know me that personally, hit the home or back button now. Things I have written in this article are not to be taken as medical advice. I do not have the qualifications for that....

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the...

Shaving for the Modern Man

As someone who doesn’t have much time for myself, I find the idea of a full scale shaving regime enough to make my head spin.  I normally leave five minutes or so each morning for my facial routine (cleansing, moisturising and so forth) and same each night before I sleep.  A proper shaving procedure would take a good twenty or so minutes.  In essence, shaving can be quite time consuming and is just not always a feasible task. In the effort to save some time, I did a little research on the evolution of shaving for the modern gentleman.  After a little intense reading and product analysis in the current market, I discovered that I can combine both my facial...
