Chilling Out with Forward Bends

I glanced at a weather map of the United States today and it’s orange, darker orange, and red all over. In other words, it’s hot.

I tend to have a high tolerance for 90 degree weather, so I revel in it, but my yoga teacher says the heat makes a lot of people irritable.

She thought we should focus on cooling poses in class today.

We worked on variations of Downward Facing Dog – using a chair, then a wall, then the regular way – and then spent some time in Child’s Pose, Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend), and Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend*).

“Forward bend poses are great for settling you down when you’re feeling agitated,” the teacher said. “You may sweat while you’re in the pose, but they’re calming on the nervous system.”

I must say, it is amazing how as the class continued I felt myself grow into silence as I streeeeeetched out, my heart resting peacefully inside.

So if you find yourself snapping at people (including yourself) or not tolerating the traffic or noticing that things that you usually don’t mind are bugging you, take heart. It might simply be the heat. Try breathing a few times . . . and don’t forget to bend.

*In Seated Forward Bend, I have to sit on two blankets and lasso a strap around the balls of my feet to hang onto and pull myself forward because I can’t reach my arms to my toes. The teacher looks just like the lady in this picture when she’s in the pose, but she mentioned that 18 years ago she had to use blankets and straps too. So. By my calculations I should be able to do Seated Forward Bend without props in 15 years. I wasn’t discouraged by this. I was excited. The human body is amazing. Anyway, I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to think about those things in yoga class, but sometimes I can’t help it!

Generic Medications like Finasteride are Equally Effective as their Branded Cousins

When it comes to generic medications, most people usually view them as low grade alternatives that are intended only for the impoverished.  Sadly, this is somewhat true for a lot of generic medications as some manufacturers try to cut cost on certain aspects of their generic products so as to increase or better their profits.  However, this is not always the case with generic medications.  Personally, when it comes to generic medicines, I try to see if the effect of the drug is visible or not, even if the result is only noticeable after a few months.  Take for instance finasteride generic, the generic form of the hair loss treatment drug Propecia.

Finasteride generic is actually the best alternative to the drug Propecia for those who are looking to save money.  Let’s make it clear, finasteride generic is not for the impoverished, but for those that want to save money.  Since this form of hair loss treatment needs to be taken on a daily basis and continuously throughout, it can really cost the user a lot of money if he continuously take the branded medication.  Fortunately, generic treatment drugs like finasteride generic exists that have virtually the same effect as its branded cousin.  Basically, finasteride generic are equally as effective as Propecia.

Propecia is a hair loss treatment drug that was developed and released by Merck.  However, when their royalty over the drug has expired, it allowed generic drug manufacturers to reproduce the drug.  For this reason, finasteride generic is made using the exact same ingredients that Merck uses to produce their male pattern baldness treatment drug, Propecia.  Perhaps the only differences that finasteride generic has over its branded cousin are the manufacturing process and quality assurance.  Nevertheless, finasteride generic is simply as effective as Propecia.
