A New Study on Nicotine E-Liquids

Published

on

A recent study on​ nicotine e-liquid juice has been conducted by Vapoureyes, covering aspects on the production, consumption and general risks associated with the product.

Nicotine E-Liquid has a range of different flavours and levels of nicotine, it’s developed and created using a mixture of pure food-grade vegetable glycerine (VG) and/or USP-grade propylene glycol (PG) and of course, nicotine to ensure maximum taste and satisfaction.

Warnings about nicotine e-liquids

Nicotine e-liquids should be seen an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes. Numerous independent agencies and companies all promote the concept of not marketing or selling to anyone who is not of legal tobacco smoking age in their state or territory and they reserve the right to enforce this if we need to. If you’re not old enough to smoke – or even if you are but never took up the habit – you don’t need to vape.

Doctors and numerous medical organisations would advise you to think twice about vaping if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have (or are at risk of having) heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other blood-related illness. You may also want to think twice if you are taking medication for depression or anxiety, have a history of chronic upper respiratory tract irritation or illness, or are otherwise sensitive to nicotine. If you’ve got any of that going on and need to quit smoking, we recommend you speak to your GP first.

How much nicotine do I need in my nicotine vape juice?

The amount of nicotine you need in your nicotine vape juice will come down to how many cigarettes you smoke per day. Many vapers will slowly taper their nicotine levels over time, but you want to start at a level that will kick your cravings and be enough to stop smoking altogether.

If you’re just starting out with vaping, you can use this as a guide:

Ultimately, your preferred nicotine level will be what you feel comfortable with. You may need to start with more milligrams than you normally get in your cigarettes, but with some experimentation you will find your level.

How to Help Your Child if You Think They Might Have Autism

mm

Published

on

Do you suspect your child might have autism, but you’re not sure? While only a professional diagnosis can tell you for sure, there are many ways you can support your child while you get a diagnosis and create a plan. 

Here are some of the best ways to support a child you think might have autism. 

  1. Try a variety of therapies

While you’re in the process of getting a formal diagnosis, start trying different therapies with your child to see if anything resonates with your child. Every child with autism is different, so what works for one person may not work for another. There are several types of therapy you can try that are low-cost or free, including play therapy, speech therapy, floortime, ABA therapy, and more.

Although your child will need a formal Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis to get ABA therapy, it’s worth noting that once you have a diagnosis, you can get in-home therapy, which will make things easier on you and your child. Organizations like Golden Care Therapy in New Jersey will send an ABA therapist to your home to work with your child in their own environment. Getting in-home therapy will reduce the stress your child may feel from being in a new and unfamiliar place.

The more therapies you try, the better chance you have of getting a head start in supporting your child, whether or not they get diagnosed with autism. 

  1. Get your child some sensory toys

Kids with autism need to stim, which is just a fancy way of saying they need something to stimulate their senses in a way that allows them to mitigate and disburse the sensory overload they’re feeling. Without toys, kids will find ways to stim using just their bodies and their surroundings, but toys can be extremely helpful and less damaging depending on your child. 

Every child is different, so it might take a bit to find toys they like. However, you can find some excellent suggestions from The Aspie World on YouTube. Some toys spin, squish, make noise, or are a series of magnets that can be reshaped. If your child is already fixated on certain types of toys, try to find something that matches their existing interest. For example, if they like soft textures, find some plush toys with a velvety-smooth texture. Try all types of toys to see if they help your child.

  1. Seek a professional diagnosis

Getting a professional diagnosis is the best way you can support your child when you think they might have autism. Once you have a diagnosis, that opens the door to getting services that will help them immensely. Not just while they’re young, but it will help them in their adult life, too. For example, if your child moves out on their own, and they struggle with self-care and household chores, they’ll need a professional diagnosis to get in-home services from the state.

A professional diagnosis will tell you if your child is on the autism spectrum, or if they have a different disorder. Depending on the therapist you choose, they’ll likely be able to diagnose your child with any relevant comorbidities, which are common with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). 

  1. Learn about autism

Next to getting your child professionally diagnosed, learning about autism will help you support your child in many ways. There are many misconceptions about autism that can make it hard to spot the signs of autism. One of the best people to learn from is Tony Attwood. He’s considered the leading expert on Autism Spectrum Disorder and is extremely knowledgeable.

One of the most important things you can learn from Attwood is how to spot Autism in girls. For various reasons, it’s harder to spot autism in girls and some girls don’t get diagnosed until they’re in their 40s. Attwood gave an excellent talk about Asperger’s in girls back in 2015, and you’ll learn a lot from this speech.

Although Attwood’s speech focuses on Asperger’s, it is part of the autism spectrum. As a diagnosis, Asperger’s has been officially merged into the diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

Support your child in every way you can

When you suspect your child might have autism, it’s important to support them in every way possible. While you’re seeking a professional diagnosis, start trying simple solutions, like play therapy and toys for stimming. See how they respond. Once you get a diagnosis, your child’s therapist will suggest next steps to help your child long-term.
