My Trips to the Hospital

Hi, I'm Cari. When I was a teenager, my best friend Claire's mom got cancer. I started offering to take Deb (the mom) to the hospital for her treatments to help give the family a break. They had all been in and out of the hospital so much, and since I'm basically family to them, it was nice to support Deb and Claire. Not to mention, I was able to learn a lot about different medical topics just be listening and watching while waiting in the hospital. It was fascinating. To everyone's joy, after a long and hard two years, Deb finally beat cancer! I decided to start this blog as a memorial to all those who have struggled with health problems and as a resource to for anyone who needs to know more about hospitals and treatments.



Three Breast Enhancement Myths, Busted

Everywhere you turn, someone claims to have an age old remedy for making your breasts larger. Most of these methods make little, if any, sense from a scientific standpoint, and they only lead to disappointment. Knowing what some of these myths are before you try them can help you save a great deal of time and unnecessary stress. Here are just some breast enhancement methods that are anything but successful.

Gaining Weight

When someone wants to build muscle, they will often increase their food intake to put on extra weight that they can eventually transform into muscle. Unfortunately, increasing your calorie intake isn't going to help you enhance the size of your breasts.

The main problem is that you can't tell your body where to store the extra weight. It could end up in your stomach, thighs, or another undesirable area. Even if some of the extra weight ends up in your breast area, it will likely be loose and flabby.

Breast Massaging

Another breast-enhancing myth is the idea that frequent massaging will make the breasts grow larger. The bad news – any results you experience will be temporary. When you massage your breast with oil, you could say you're irritating the area. The pressure, constant rubbing, and manual manipulation of the area causes the breasts to swell.

Obviously, the swelling will make your breast appear larger. However, once the swelling goes down, so will your results.  If you're just looking for larger breasts for the night, this option might work, but if you're looking for long-term, real results, this isn't right for you.  

Lifting Weights

When you lift weights, your muscles expand, making you appear larger. Some people assume that if they build up their chest muscles, the size of the breasts will also increase. This is inaccurate. Although your chest muscles and breasts seem like one cohesive part on the surface, they are two separate entities.

The size of your muscles have absolutely nothing to do with the size of your breasts. No matter how much you build your chest muscles up, the size of your breasts will remain the same.

Breast enhancement myths are everywhere. Make sure you don't fall for one. As a general rule of thumb, if the idea sounds too good to be true, you can assume that it likely is. Only consider those enhancement methods that have a solid scientific background for the best results.
