Freedom Wand for Obese People Having Trouble Wiping

Would we Recommend the freedom Wand to our readers?

The freedom wand is a butt wiping aid used by obese, handicapped as well as people with short arms who might be having difficulty reaching their bums after visiting the toilet and doing their number 2s. So they want some assistive device that will be able to reach their butts and so they try out the freedom wand.

According to hosiped, a caregiving blog that exhaustively discusses this topic in depth, the freedom wand is not only good for wiping but will also prove invaluable for reaching out to wash your back, apply ointment to unreachable areas as well as shaving your legs. It adds length to your hands so that you are able to reach those parts that you are unable to reach because of maybe a surgery, obesity, pregnancy or short arms.

However, there has been debate that the freedom wand is rather brittle and will break after short use. It is also one of the most expensive butt wipers out there and therefore some people look for cheaper alternative where they do not have to cough out so many bucks to buy the toilet wiping aids. Some of the most prefered products include the bottom buddy, the juvo toilet aid with caddy as well as the long reach comfort wipe.

The pros of the freedom wand

Different from all its competitors, the freedom wand will help you do the following:

1.Wash your body with ease, even the back parts. All the other products do not have this functionality; they only help wipe your buttocks after a number 2 in the toilet.

2. Shaving. With the freedom wand, you can shave off your legs and all other parts that would have proved unreachable were you to do it with your hands.

3. Applying ointment. You can use the wand to apply ointment to hurt parts.

The cons of the freedom wand

There has been a hygiene debate going on in the caregiving space where some people feel that using the butt wand to wipe your bum and later using the same device to shave, wash your body or apply ointment is rather unclean and even filthy. Well, I cannot agree with these people more. Even when you wash the butt wand after using it to clean your bum, I feel that there could be some debris that will not be cleaned out. I would also feel uncomfortable using the wand to wash my back after using it in the toilet. It is disgusting.

The wand is one of the most expensive hygiene products out there and the price could be rather inhibitive for some low income earners.

Time and time again, I have seen in the freedom wand reviews that the product is rather fragile. Some people said that it broke after short use and you would really feel conned after spending an arm and a leg to have the freedom wand breaking in a record 3 months. Who wants that really? Nobody!


Taking Care of Parkinson’s Patients

Parkinson’s disease is a neural degenerative disorder where your central nervous system refuses to produce dopamine since the neurons responsible for this have either gotten denatured or destroyed. It mostly affects people at the age of 60 and above. However, there have been cases of people who got the disease at a tender age for example Michael J Fox who got the disease at the age of 29.

The most obvious symptom of Parkinson is tremors where the patient will  be trembling uncontrollably. Those who have the disorder say that it usually starts with a simple twitch of one finger and this goes on and on to develop to full blown tremors of the entire hand. Another symptom is dyskinesia which has been said to be involuntary movement and fidgeting of the whole body. So for example a Parkinson’s patient will find it hard to sleep since their limbs and body parts will move uncontrollably and they can do nothing to stop it.

Parkinson could also lead to slurring of speech, imbalance when one is walking as well as falls especially when the patient wakes up from their bed. In this post therefore, we will examine some of the ways that caregivers can help take care of of their patients. Caregiver Trizah Wanja of hosiped says that love and understanding are the most crucial things that the PD patient needs.

“When you love and understand them, they feel less anxious, stressed and depressed and they are therefore able to share their fears”, says Trizah Wanja.

  1. Medicine to curb the symptoms 

Parkinson has no known cure. There are however drugs to help curb the symptoms. Some of these drugs include Sinemet and Levodopa that introduce dopamine into your body therefore helping you recover and be able to control the symptoms.

Of late CBD oil which is still being researched on has also been said to help people alleviate anxiety and therefore have better sleep.

2. Spoon for tremors

Parkinson’s patients usually have a hard time eating since they have tremors. They will therefore shake visibly to the point of pouring their food. Caregivers can get them spoons for tremors that help with less spillage of the food.

3. Exercise

Parkinson’s patients should get alot of exercise as this helps them with movement. If one is not exercising, they will suffer more from dyskinesia. Some of the exercise you can do is swimming, boxing as well as jogging. You can also do some light weight lifting as all this helps with voluntary movements of the limbs.


Toliet hygiene tips you need to have

At a young age, we are all taught how to use the toilet. You know how your mom or guardian tells you from a young age that you ought to flush the toilet, wash it clean with the best detergent and all that. Well, our moms were not that experienced in telling us that and though their advice was sound, they left out so much tips that we will be looking at in this blog post.

Toilet plume

This is without a doubt something that they never told us. About the toilet plume which is more dangerous that the poop itself. But why. According to Wikipedia, toilet plume is the dispersal of microscopic particles that occurs when you flush your toilet. Figure out this: you want to get rid of poop because it is nothing but well, waste. However, what you did not know is that the same waste could get into contact with you when you flush the toilet. And you need not notice this plume. Why?

Because it is microscopic in nature. And if your teacher taught you right, then they told you that microscopic particles cannot be seen with the naked eye. Well, if you do not want to get into contact with this toilet plume, the only way to do so is to place the toilet cover before flushing. This way, the plume only hits the cover lid and not you.

Rather squat than seat

In my village setting, we have those pit latrines where you have to squat rather than sit. And when I came to the urban centers, I thought that those toilets of our village are old fashioned and all that. Well the truth is that I was wrong. Research shows that it is better to squat rather than sit on a toilet for better bowel movement and emptying.

Cleaning up the toilet seat

Cleaning up the toilet is something that we all know. But do you always wash out the toilet seat? Well, if you have not been doing so then you need to start doing it. And wash with antiseptics and any other cleaning detergent that you might have so that you are cock-sure that the toilet is not only sparkling clean but also hygienic to use.

Using wet wipes instead of toilet paper

I always thought that using wet wipes for cleaning your bum was something disgusting until I found out that using it is the best thing ever. Do not use tissue paper because it has been found to be ineffective. The wet wipes though wash out everything and every dirt that you might be having after using the toilet to empty your bowels.

Toilet help for disabled and aged

Elderly people, obese and handicapped might be having problems while using the toilet. You need to be there for them and do not feel disgusted about it. At the same time, they might want help with wiping their butts. Well, guess what, there are actually some bottom wiper for obese tools that they can use.

Equipment for Abs: What Gym machines will make me lose love handles?

So, I was going through some of the emails that have been sent by you readers. And there was this particular woman who wanted to know the equipment for abs that she should use in order to lose her love handles.I sent her an email asking how much she weighs and her height and she replied telling me that she weighs 120kgs and measures 1,5m. I knew that her BMI was having a problem.

But since we know that BMI is not the best measure of obesity, I asked her to measure her waist circumference and when she did, it came to 90cm and I knew then that we were having a problem.

Love handles or obliques come about when you have very high fat deposits around your waist. The best way to rid yourself is through weight loss regimes as well as going to the gym and doing exercises that target on the abs.

Since I had read of these best equipment for abs, I knew that I just needed to recommend them to her. So here is the list that I sent her.

  1. Swiss stability balls
  2. Bench press machine
  3. Keto bells
  4. Ab carver rollers
  5. Twister and ab shaper.

With these equipments, you will be able to do these exercises:

  1. Crunches
  2. Sitting on the swiss ball
  3. Rolling to lose tummy.

Other than exercises, I told her to check her diet. She could start with a detox followed by eating only healthy fats, lots of veges and proteins, less carbs and more water.

I hope these article on equipment for abs to lose love handles will help even those having a problem with obliques.

Viagra and cialis are not the safest male enhancement

Lets face it, Viagra is great only if you want to die young. Yes, nobody refutes that it is going to give you great boners and all that. But the thing is that you become a slave of the drug. You will have to pop the blue pill every now and then.

Cialis is  no better and that is the reason why I would never advise even my worst enemy to take either of these two pills.

But what should one take if they are hell bent on improving their boners and getting rid of erectile dysfunction.

Well, amazon has great products such as alpha male, testofuel and testogen xr that are great in increasing testosterone as well as improving a man’s libido. Studies have gone on to show that d aspartic acid, tribulus terrestris and ashwagandha are great in giving you better hard ons. And that is why I would advise anybody to try them because they are so effective that you will not believe it after they start taking effect on your body.

At, I found out these great pills that are going to revolutinize your bed life as they do the following:

  • Give you better boners
  • Make your dick longer
  • Give you better orgasms.

How yohimbine burns stubborn fat

If you are not yet in the know than you should now grasp that yohimbine is an alpha 2 receptor blocker and since alpha receptors make fat burn a difficult thing, yohimbine makes it possible.
So if you have been battling with stubborn fat that will not go despite everything you do, try yohimbine.

So, what are alpha 2 receptors

Alpha 2 receptors are found in the human cell and they receive fat and bind to it. When this happens, the body blood pressure goes down so that you have low metabolism. With that, no matter how much you do exercises, you still find that you are not losing weight as you would expect. You have hit a weight loss plateau where the much you are losing is equal to what you are eating.

Remember if you are trying to lose weight, then the following equation must hold

Weight Lost> Weight Gained

If that is not the case and you have

Weight Lost=Weight Gained

Then you should know that you are not doing anything and you will never see progress.

The worst though is when you have

Weight Lost<Weight Gained

In such a case, you will find that you are always gaining weight and you will surely never see a breakthrough

This video explains the concept so well that I fell in love with it immediately.

I also found a good article that explains how weight loss happens. In this article, you will find a drug called performix which has been said to contain both eviodamine and yohimbine which are both alpha 2 receptors. The article is Best Fat Burning Gnc Pills Reviewed [UPDATE 2018]

The opposite of alpha 2 receptors is beta 2 receptors. These ones are good because they lead to enhanced fat burn. Fortunately there are drugs such as phenq which activate beta 2 receptors helping you burn fat.

Choosing a hospital bed for sale

So a friend’s grandfather is involved in an accident and he gets badly hurt. He is taken to the hospital and treated. He has fractured bones and all that. The doctor do their part and three months down the line, he is discharged. He is however walking with crutches and the physiotherapist says that he needs at least 6 months bed rest so that he can recuperate. He says that his bones are weak and that he will have to either go to a rehabilitative center or get personalized home care.

Since they are a closely knit family and the want to shower the old man with love and attention, they take him up for home care. The physiotherapist has however warned them that it will not be easy since the elderly man will be dependent for that duration of time. Why? He is not able to take himself to the toilet, eat or even wash his body. The home care giver has to do all this.

They are also advised to get the best hospital bed for the old man so that he can have comfort. So, they are looking for hospital bed for sale and they come to me for advice. So as a good family friend this is what I advice them.

Go for full electric bed

The full electric bed is easy to use since to adjust it all you need is press the pendant control and voila, you get a change of bed height, a change of the head and the feet position done quickly.

At the same time, if the old man is able to outstretch their arm, then he can do it since all they need to do is make sure that the pendant control is on top of the rails where he can simply stretch out his hand and adjust the bed position to whatever height they want. When the lights go out, the bed has a crank at the foot so that all these can be done manually. It also has a 9volt battery that helps you raise the bed for at least 9 times before it dies and needs to be recharged.

Look for bed entrapment compliance

The FDA in 2006 announced that it had gotten so many reports of bed entrapment deaths and injuries that they would not want to hear them again. So they introduced some standards that manufacturers should abide to. Home care givers should check to make sure that their bed manufacturers are abiding to these rules lest you injure or kill your patient.

Safety bed rails

Bed rails are a must if at all you care about the well being of your patient. You do not want them to fall from the bed in their sleep further injuring themselves, do you. No, you want them to be protected using safe to use rails. With rails, the patient feels confident and secure. However, if they are seizure stricken patients, you need to have foam paddings so that the patient will not hurt themselves even when they get affected by the seizures.

Get a heated mattress pad

Since the friend was buying the bed during the cold season, I advised them that they should also get a heated mattress pad if they could afford. With a heated mattress pad, the patient does not feel as though you are heaping a ton of blankets on top of them. No, the pad does the warming and they will require only one blanket. There are also electric blankets that will also solve the problem. With these electric beddings, caution needs to be taken lest you start a fire and burn up your patient.


Gnc weight loss pills

Out of all weight loss eCommerce stores, there is one tiny store that has been ignored for such a long time. Incredibly, after reviewing their products in relation to our Thai story, I found out that Gnc prides in providing nothing but the best weight loss pills.

But why has it been ignored?

Weight loss is a mega-million dollar industry and the big fish such as amazon try as much as possible to sell that which is selling quickly and at awesome prices. That is a good thing considering that they have a huge staff to pay and high technology to maintain. Plus, who would hate to sell that which is hot and selling quickly?

Honest answer; nobody.

In avoiding the small brands though, amazon as well as the other ecommerce giants are missing out on some vital weight loss products that are focused on the following:

Appetite suppressing

When you are losing weight, you want all that which you eat to be used up in your body. However, we always find out that people eat more that they are craving. So the body has so much to waste.

Excessive eating is mindless. You are watching tv and grabbing some pop corns from a bowl. You are tense or nervous and sipping one bottle of juice after the other. Someone wrongs you and you find yourself eating one packet of biscuits after the other.

Gnc fat burning pills

Fat burning is all about thermogenesis. Your body usually generated internal heat that burns up all fats in your body especially around the midsection; what causes a paunch or a pot belly.

Postnatal weight loss pills

After baby delivery, women find out that they have gained so much weight, they need to take postnatal pills that will not alter their milk supply or reach the baby. Gnc weight loss pills are ideal since they are safe to use as well as being very effective

Fat burning supplements you will find at gnc

Some of the popular fat burning pills you will find at gnc include:

  1. Garcinia Cambogia
  2. Burn 60
  3. Gnc total Lean
  4. Hydroxycut
  5. MuscleTech among others

How to find the best running shoes

Finding fitting running shoes that are of good quality offers you comfort and serves you for quite a long time without having to replace them. It also protects you from pain, aches and injuries. Before going to find a suitable pair of running shoes, you should know what type of feet you have to narrow down to some specific styles meant for your type.

Below are some major considerations you should put in mind when finding the best running shoes for yourself or best boots for walking on concrete.


  1. The heel

Basically, your heel should fit comfortably and the shoe should offer protection against cold to prevent numbness. You should be able to slide your feet out when the shoes are laced up but not tired.

  1. Length

Sometimes your feet might swell and lengthen when you run for long distances so ensure that the shoe leaves a thumb’s width between your longest toe and the front part of the shoe. Your toes too should move up and down freely.

  1. Flex

Press the tip of the shoe on the ground to note where it creases and bends. This exact point should be aligned with the point at which your foot flexes to prevent pain and plantar fasciitis. These problems hinder flexibility resulting to calf strain and Achilles-tendons.

  1. Width

You should be able to move your foot side to side without any difficulties. To know whether the shoe is too narrow, you will feel the base of you last toe sitting on the edge of the shoe.

  1. Running surface

Bear in mind the type of terrain you will be running on mostly. Road shoes or treadmill are designed for both hard and smooth running areas like paved trails and roads. Trail shoes are for uneven surfaces to boost your stability and prevent your feet from dangerous roots and rocks. Racing flats take time before the feet fully adjust to them and have little pudding but are very flexible.

  1. Foot pronation

  This is simply how the foot rolls in or out when it gets into contact with the ground. Over pronation is when the feet rolls inwards and may cause strains on both your feet and legs. Under pronation is when it rolls outwards which tends to cause high arches on the toes. Normal pronation is the most common and occurs when the feet pronates normally, best suited with stability shoes that are more flexible.

Battle ropes workout routine example

A battle rope also known as a conditioning rope or a fitness rope is basically a weighted rope usually between 30ft and 50ft long. It also has handles on both ends where one holds, but not with all workouts, in order to carry out an exercise with the rope.

For most of the workouts with a fitness rope you need to anchor it at its midpoint. Anchoring is pretty easy and you just need to ensure that the anchor point is well fixed such that it does not come off during workouts.

Below we’ll look at the waves exercise routine, which is done with a battle rope. The most important thing is to have fun with the workouts and you can even modify an exercise to your liking.

Waves fitness rope exercise

Have you ever thrown a stone in a pool of water and seen how waves move away from the stone’s point of hitting the water surface? That is what we’ll be recreating, with a fitness rope, in this routine.

With the rope anchored at its midpoint, hold the end points of the rope with both hands while at a squat position. However, you can also sit on a chair if for instance you have a knee injury or you feel your fitness level is a little low.

There are two ways to do the waves workout. One, moving the hands up and down together to create the waves. Two, you can do the alternating waves. This is where you move one hand up and the other down, while holding the rope’s handles. This creates alternating waves as well.

The video below shows what muscles get help when you use a battle rope.

To increase the level of difficulty for this routine, do side lunges simultaneously with the waves. Also keep doing the waves for durations of between 30 seconds and 60 seconds, then rest for a short duration, about 30 seconds. Then repeat the waves for about four more sets.
