Known as pes planus in medical terminology, collapsed arches or flat feet is a foot problem that is caused when small bones, ligaments and tendons on the bottom of the feet are unable to support the body properly and eventually collapse. In newborns and toddlers, flat feet are a normal phenomenon; however, most of the times, tissues beneath the feet tighten with age and form a shock-absorbing arch. Flat feet are caused by many factors like improper footwear, obesity and even hereditary predisposition. Flat feet don’t lead to any negative consequences or symptoms in most adults. However, some people may experience pain in foot, back or leg and their ability of walking, running or playing sports may be restricted due to flat feet. Therefore, collapsed arches are an important issue that should be rectified.

Here are tips that will help you ensure safe clinical waste management.
This is the time for healthy living. Everyone is conscious about weight loss and nutrition, healthy eating, exercise and many other health topics. However, there are still some people who hate vegetables and take pride in eating meat. I don’t say that eating meat is bad. After all, meat provides a sizeable dose of pure protein. What I want is to change the viewpoint of these people that vegetables are bad (not from the health point of view but from the taste point of view). I want to promote a food here called smoothie to these vegetable-haters because they can easily see that they don’t have to cook vegetables, don’t have to spend much time in eating them and still they can get all the tremendous health benefits of vegetables through smoothies.

Panic disorder takes place when our body’s natural alarm system goes wrong. In normal cases, our body’s security system alerts us to give a fight or flight response in situations which are actually fearsome; but when this system goes wrong, it gives us this signal even if we are totally safe. Panic attacks are not dangerous. But they keep the person always under stress and bodily symptoms like shortness of breath, pounding heart, tingling skin etc which are just the usual fight/flight responses and not of a dangerous disease like heart attack or stroke. If you understand that it’s a false alarm, you can recover quickly and successfully.
