Itching, scratching, itching, scratching....

The phenomenon of itch is fascinating from the point of view of evolution.  Our bodies react to bites and chemicals by releasing a chemical called histamine: basically a big highlighter that says "over here" to our immune system, alerting it to send other cell fighters to help combat the offending insect, or toxin.

Which is great, except when there is no toxin or insect.  In that case, itch is just something that ends up driving you nuts.

The causes of skin itching range from dryness, to bites, to eczema, psoriasis, and more dangerous internal situations like liver disease, cancer and diabetes.

Lubdub lubdub.....PALPITATIONS!

Most of the time , we are completely unaware of our faithful heart, which beats tirelessly over 100,000 times a day.  It is only when its rhythm becomes disrupted that we notice it: as a skipped beat, a racing heartrate, or we experience symptoms such as dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain or fainting.

Most palpitations are benign, meaning not life-threatening.  Sometimes, however, the electrical circuits of the heart are damaged and the rhythm becomes erratic and even fatal. 

Honor your heart. And watch the KUAM Healthy Living video below to learn more about palpitations.

Tics and Twitches

We all have moments when we feel our muscles are "doing their own thing":  feeling weak in the knees, or having a random spasm or twitch somewhere in our body.  Things get more serious when these twitches are frequent and uncontrollable.  Hallmarks of a tic are that it can be temporarily suppressed, but then "erupts" in an uncontrollable twitch.  Sometimes they are even verbal, such as in Tourette's syndrome.  Thankfully, treatments are available.

For more information about pesky twitches and tics, see our healthy living videos below!
