HEAR WHAT OPRAH WINFREY HAD TO SAY ABOUT MEN
If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behaviour.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that's not meant to be.
Slower is better.
Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can't "be friends". A friend wouldn't mistreat a friend.
If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is
Don't stay because you think "it will get better"
You'll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who've got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women..
He didn't marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?
Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up..
Never let a man know everything.* He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man's behavior.* Change comes from within.
Don't EVER make him feel he is more important than you are...
Even if he has more education or in a better job.
Do not make him into a quasi-god.
He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else's man.
If he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending...
Compromise is two way street.
You need time to heal between relationships. ..
There is nothing cute about baggage...
Deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you...
A relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals. ..
Look for someone complimentary. ...not supplementary.
Dating is fun...even if he doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.
Make him miss you sometimes... when a man always know where you are, and you're always readily available to him - he takes it for granted
Never move into his mother's house.. Never co-sign for a man.
Don't fully commit to a man who doesn't give you everything that you need.*
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.
Scared of being alone is what makes a lot of women stay in relationships that are abusive or hurtful: Dr. Phill
You should know that:
You're the best thing that could ever happen to anyone and if a man mistreats you, he'll miss out on a good thing. If he was attracted to you in the 1st place, just know that he's not the only one.
They're all watching you, so you have a lot of choices.
Make the right one.
Ladies take care of your own hearts....
Share this with other women and men (just so they know)...
You'll make someone smile, another rethink her choices, and another woman prepare..

THE NEW EFFECTIVE SELF-THERAPY FOR LOSING WEIGHT
EVOLUTION OF AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE
2 small magnets to be applied to the ear at any time during the day
It does not waste any of your precious time because it works by itself
without the need to consult doctors or specialised centres
There are no contraindications or side effects
It can be used alone or at the same time as other products or dietary regimens designed for reducing body weight
Makes it possible to lose from 4.1 to 9.8 Kg per month
It is an innovative patented therapy that combines the advantages of valid systems that have already been used in auricular therapy and acupuncture with a technology that is yielding excellent results for WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENT with no effort on the part of the user.
It is well known to medical science that when acupuncture or auricular therapy stimulate certain points on the ear this induces the neurotransmitters to produce endorphins; the same ones what we produce when WE FEEL SATISFIED WHILE EATING.
The ZeroDIET uses two biomagnets made of natural material which, when positioned as described later on, create pressure that noticeably reduces hunger and appetite.
The two magnets used in the ZeroDIET therapy stimulate two neurotransmitters that carry out two activities simultaneously:
the second at the brain level with the production of a particular kind of endorphin that accelerates the satiety process.
and the second at the physical level in the digestive system, giving
the sensation of food saturation and hence causing the
individual to eat less than what would have been eaten
without these stimuli,all achieved without difficulty and effort on the part of the individual.
Tested and recommended by the I.S.I.A.
Higher Institute of Food Hygiene
and by specialised medical centres in the USA and Canada.
Global research on obesity that is not caused by medical disorders attribute the cause of excess weight to overeating by approx. 30%.
Using the ZeroDIET pmagnets will help you to eat from 25 al 39% than what you would have eaten without them, and hence lead to a weight loss of from 3.6 to 5.3 kg. All in 30 days without sacrifices and without following a particular dietary regimen.
The ZeroDIET also be an important aid when following controlled eating regimens or programmed diets, leading in this case to even better results, up to 9 kg of weight loss in 30 days.
The magnets are covered with gold, a precious noble metal, long known for its conductive properties and the fact that it does not cause any kind of allergy.
How to use the magnets
To start the ZeroDIET therapy position the two magnets on the left ear 3/4 times a day for about half an hour at a time, as explained in the attached instruction leaflet.
YOU DO NOT MAKE A HOLE IN THE EAR, and the magnets are able to stay in the correct position by attraction.
The operation should be repeated every day for the first month and then as often as needed.
As you can see from the illustrations, the magnets are of different size and shape. They should be positioned on the front protuberance over the entrance to the ear canal: one on the outside (the smaller one with the hole in the centre) and the other on the inside (the larger one). Just position them so they do not fall off and then after a few minutes they will find the exact position by themselves.
The induced reaction will be a sensation of fullness even on an empty stomach and this will increase at the table or as you open the fridge door, causing you to eat less and hence reduce your body weight.
1. You can easily carry out the therapy alone at home without having to visit doctors’ surgeries or specialised centres.
2. Unlike other systems, you do not need help from other people to carry out the therapy.
3. You do not have to take any pills or potions and you do not need to change your eating habits. There are no electric shocks, no injections, so that you will not experience any discomfort or side effects.
4. You decide for yourself when is the best time of day to use the magnets.
5. There are no contraindications.
6. You do not have to take any time off from your other activities.
7. It costs only 49 euros, which you spend once and for all, because the magnets can be re-used, having a charge that lasts about 100 years.

You will find qualified staff who will give
you all the information you need.
You have taken the first step towards losing weight
by entering this website and reading its contents.
Take the decisive step! Order now and in a few days
you will be able to say:
I am losing weight!

Torsade de pointes is a distinctive polymorphic ventricular tachycardia in which the QRS amplitude varies and the QRS complexes appear to twist around the baseline. Torsade de pointes is associated with a prolonged QT interval, which may be congenital or acquired. It is usually not sustained and terminates spontaneously but frequently recurs unless the underlying cause is corrected and may degenerate into sustained ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. Torsade is a life-threatening arrhythmia and may present as sudden cardiac death in patients with structurally normal hearts.
- The corrected QT interval is longer in the white population than in the black population, and longer in females than males. Therefore torsade de pointes is more common in white races and in females.
- Torsade occurs at any age. If it occurs at an early age, the cause is usually due to congenital long QT syndrome. In later years, the cause is usually due to acquired long QT syndrome.
- Congenital long QT syndromes, e.g. Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome, Romano-Ward syndrome
- Acquired long QT syndromes:
- Acute phase of acute myocardial infarction
- Drugs; e.g. antiarrhythmic agents of classes 1a and III, erythromycin, ketoconazole, tricyclic antidepressants, antipsychotics
- Electrolyte disturbances; hypokalaemia, hypomagnesaemia, hypocalcaemia
- Metabolic; hypothyroidism, anorexia nervosa, starvation
- Bradycardia; sinoatrial disease, AV block
- Toxins; heavy metals, insecticides
- Episodes of torsade in patients with congenital long QT syndromes may be triggered by stress, fear or physical exertion.
- Patients with torsade usually present with recurrent episodes of palpitations, dizziness, and syncope. Sudden cardiac death can occur with the first episode.
- Nausea, pallor, cold sweats, shortness of breath and chest pain also may occur.
- Physical findings depend on the rate and duration of tachycardia and the degree of cerebral hypoperfusion. Findings include rapid pulse, low or normal blood pressure or transient or prolonged loss of consciousness.
- Other physical signs depend on the cause of torsade, e.g. features of a congenital disorder.
- Polymorphic ventricular tachycardia
- Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia
- Supraventricular tachycardia with aberrant conduction
- Other causes of syncope or sudden cardiac death
- Paroxysms of 5-20 beats, with a heart rate faster than 200 beats per minute. Sustained episodes are occasionally seen.
- Progressive change in polarity of QRS about the isoelectric line occurs with complete 180 degree twist of QRS complexes in 10-12 beats.
- Usually, a prolonged QT interval and pathological U waves are present, reflecting abnormal ventricular repolarisation. The most consistent indicator of QT prolongation is a QT of 0.60 s or longer or a QTc (corrected for heart rate) of 0.45 s or longer.
- A short-long-short sequence between the R-R interval occurs before the trigger response.
- Electrolytes; hypokalaemia, hypomagnesaemia and hypocalcaemia.
- Cardiac enzymes; rule out myocardial ischaemia.
- Chest x-ray and echocardiography; rule out structural heart disease if any clinical suggestion is present.
- Although torsade frequently is self-terminating, it may degenerate into ventricular fibrillation, which requires defibrillation.
- In an otherwise stable patient, DC cardioversion is kept as a last resort because torsade is paroxysmal in nature and frequently recurs after cardioversion.
- Discontinuation of any offending agent and correction of any underlying cause such as hypokalaemia, hypomagnesaemia and bradycardia.
- Suppression of early after depolarisations:
- Intravenous magnesium is the drug of choice for torsades de pointes. Magnesium is effective even in patients with normal magnesium levels.
- Acceleration of the heart rate can be achieved by using beta 1-adrenergic agonists such as isoproterenol or overdrive electrical pacing.
- Isoproterenol is used as an interim treatment until overdrive pacing can be started:
- Can be used in bradycardia-dependent torsade that is usually associated with acquired long QT syndrome. It is given as a continuous IV infusion to keep the heart rate faster than 90 beats per minute.
- Isoproterenol accelerates AV conduction and decreases the QT interval by increasing the heart rate and reducing temporal dispersion of repolarisation.
- Beta-adrenergic agonists are contraindicated in the congenital form of long QT syndrome.
- Temporary transvenous pacing:
- Pacing can be effective in terminating torsade by increasing the heart rate and so reducing the QT interval.
- Atrial pacing is the preferred mode because it preserves the atrial contribution to ventricular filling. In patients with AV block, ventricular pacing can be used to suppress torsade.
- Patients without syncope, ventricular tachyarrhythmia or a family history of sudden cardiac death can be observed without starting any treatment.
- Congenital long QT syndrome:
- Beta-adrenergic antagonists are used as a first-line long-term therapy in congenital long QT syndrome. Propranolol is has been the most extensively used.
- Beta-blockers are contraindicated in acquired cases because bradycardia produced by these agents can precipitate torsade. They should also be avoided in those congenital cases in which bradycardia is a prominent feature.
- Permanent pacing benefits patients who remain symptomatic despite receiving the maximally tolerated dose of beta-blockers and can be used in addition to beta-blockers.
- High left thoracic sympathectomy is effective in patients who remain refractory to beta-blockade and pacing.
- Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) are useful in rare instances when torsade still continues despite all of these treatments. Beta-blockers should be used along with ICDs because shock can further precipitate torsade by adrenergic stimulation.
- Acquired long QT syndrome:
- Long-term treatment in acquired cases is usually not required because the QT interval returns to normal once the predisposing factor has been corrected.
- Pacemaker implantation is effective in cases that are associated with heart block or bradycardia.
- Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are indicated in cases that cannot be managed by avoidance of any specific precipitating factor.
- Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia
- Ventricular fibrillation
- Sudden cardiac death
- Patients may revert spontaneously or convert to a non-polymorphic ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation.
- Torsade is a life-threatening arrhythmia and may present as sudden cardiac death in patients with structurally normal hearts. In congenital long QT syndrome, the mortality rate for untreated patients is 50% in 10 years, which can be reduced to 3-4% with treatment.
- In acquired long QT syndrome, the prognosis is excellent once any precipitating factor has been removed.
- Avoid offending drugs that prolong the QT interval.
- Prevent predisposing conditions such as hypokalaemia, hypomagnesaemia, and hypocalcaemia, especially in patients shown to have long QT interval.
- Screen families of patients with torsade for whom the cause for prolonged QT is suggested to be congenital.
