Prevention 6 December, 2019

Because of its antioxidants that fight bad cholesterol and promote good cholesterol, wine can prevent heart disease.

When consumed in moderation, this beverage can reduce the risk of different types of cardiovascular disease. This is due to the resveratrol it contains, an antioxidant that slows aging and prevents coronary artery disease, damage to blood vessels and blood clots. With these benefits, people often ask, “What is the most recommended type of wine?”

As the Saludalia website states, there actually is not any evidence that proves that red wine is better for your health than other types of wine, such as white wine, or beer. However, throughout its production process, red wine absorbs more resveratrol because it ferments longer with the grape’s skin. If you want to receive the benefits of antioxidants without consuming alcoholic beverages, as the Mayo Clinic recommends, include peanuts, blueberries, cranberries and juice made from natural grapes part of your daily diet.

How to treat microtia

Harmony in health 2 December, 2019

This congenital condition prevents the external ear from completely forming, either through deformities or by not forming at all.

Microtia mostly affects newborns and its main cause is associated with a combination of inherited traits and environmental factors that make the ear malform. It is usually diagnosed along with aural atresia, which is the absence of the external ear canal. While this condition can occur in both ears, according to a study conducted by the Institute of Human Genetics at Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogota, 90% of cases only affect one ear.

Some aesthetic treatment alternatives include prostheses and reconstructive surgery, as well as auditory stimulation by bone conduction to treat hearing loss. Non-surgical options include using headbands or elastic bands with ear sound processors. Most importantly, a specialist should be seen in order to determine the degree of microtia and the appropriate procedure for each patient.

The pacifier, a companion for your baby’s wellbeing

The pacifier, a companion for your baby’s wellbeing

Small giants 22 November, 2019

By nature, small children feel calm when they suck their thumb or hands. A pacifier can be an alternative option to encourage this feeling.

It is normal for small children to have a need to suck after breastfeeding or being fed from their bottle, because it gives them greater peace of mind. However, it is important to know when it is appropriate to give them a pacifier in order to prevent this from becoming a substitute for meals or a convenience mechanism for parents who, on occasion, use it to manage uncontrollable temper tantrums.

The website Healthy Children from the American Academy of Pediatrics offers some advice for choosing and appropriately using a pacifier when raising your baby:

  • Avoid using honey, sugar, or other sweet substances to bribe your child to use the pacifier. It is best not to force them.
  • Pacifiers come in various sizes and shapes, so opt for one that has a base wider than your child’s mouth.
  • Clean the pacifier periodically, boiling it before its next use, as this will prevent your baby from being exposed to infections.
  • The recommended age to stop using a pacifier is between six months and 1 year. Using a pacifier after 2 years of age can cause dental problems.
