What is an Ankle Sprain?
An ankle sprain occurs when the ankle suddenly twists. It causes damage to the soft tissues and ligaments surrounding the ankle joint.
The ankle ligament stabilizes the ankle joint. A ligament consists of several strands of tissue all compacted together to form a strong structure. Sometimes, an ankle sprain may cause a partial or complete tear of a ligament.
When an ankle sprain occurs, the patient may hear a pop or snap.
An ankle sprain is a common walking and sporting injury.
Symptoms of an Ankle Sprain?
Some of the most common symptoms of an ankle sprain are:
* pop or snap sound at the time of injury
* inability to walk or apply pressure to the ankle
Types of Ankle Sprains
* Grade 1: Mild tear or pull of ligament. Painful but can bear weight. These types of ankle sprains can usually be self-treated.
* Grade 2: Larger but incomplete tear of ligament. Pain is severe and ankle won't support much weight.
* Grade 3: Complete tear of ligament or ligaments. Very painful. Can't touch or move ankle without pain. Treatment may require surgery.
What causes an Ankle Sprain?
Most ankle sprains are caused by a sudden twist of the ankle. The sudden twist may be caused by:
* sports activity (running, jumping)
* abnormal walking condition
How are Ankle Sprains treated?
If you believe you have sprained your ankle, apply ice or an ice pack on it immediately. The ice will help decrease the swelling. Next, visit your doctor so he can take an x-ray to make sure that it is not broken.
You should also follow the R.I.C.E. theory. To follow R.I.C.E, Rest, Ice, Compress and Elevate the wounded area.
In severe cases, surgery may be needed to repair the tendons supporting the ankle.
It usually takes about 3 to 7 weeks to fully recover. It may take a few months for swelling to completely go away.

Twitter is becoming the fatest growing social networking tool available. Find out exactly what it is and how to use it. Send a "tweet" in minutes.
How Twitter was Created
Using a Twitter Account
Twitter can be linked to other social networks, blogs, and websites. For instance, post a blog update and use the Twitter button. The blog entry will be sent to the people specified by the sender. This only works when logged into the Twitter account.
As a few of you will know I have been “tweeting” on Twitter over the last few weeks (Follow me here). Several people have asked me what is Twitter or how can I use it so I thought I would write an explanation.
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered will increase the concentration of CO2 (carbon dioxide) and decrease the concentration of O2 Oxygen) that may lead to the brain damaging effects.
8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.
The main causes of liver damage are:
1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food colouring, and
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil.
Try to reduce the use of cooking oil when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming raw (overly done)
Foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.
We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary
chemicals according to "schedule."
Here comes the reason.
Evening at 9 - 11 PM:
It is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (detoxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes).This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on health.
Evening at 11pm - 1 am:
It is the detoxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.
Early morning 1 - 3 am:
The detoxification process in the gall is ideally done in a deep sleep state.
Early morning 3 - 5 am:
It is the time of detoxification in the lungs. Therefore, there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the detoxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.
Morning 5 - 7am:
The time of detoxification in the colon, so you should empty your bowel.
Morning 7 - 9 am:
The absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time.
Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30 am, for those who are sick.
Breakfast before 7:30 am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit.
Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 - 10 am rather than no meal at all.
Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4:00 am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.
