*  How To Achieve Excellent Health and Wellness…
... One of the most important choices you will ever make is to GET A SECOND OPINION from an Alternative Health Care Provider before you ever consider having surgery or taking prescription drugs for anything. Most drugs either inhibit or stimulate functions in your body. But if your body has a problem and you take an over-the-counter or pharmaceutical drug to FEEL better, guess what? The problem is not better, you just put a chemical band-aid on it! Do that long enough and something will certainly break down. Taking pills, powders or potions for pain or to counteract visible symptoms, won’t address the CAUSE of your health condition . Drugs create a distorted illusion of health, they don’t make you better, your self-healing body is the only real miracle-worker. Drugs and surgery should be avoided at all costs! Once the energy flowing through you is balanced and flowing freely, except in severe cases, your body will naturally heal and repair all by itself… NO DRUGS OR SURGERY ...

As in other regions, health status within the South also varies by race and ethnicity, and Blacks in particular, are more likely than Whites to report having fair or poor health. 1 /6 Section 3: ...

Study: Women Abused As Kids More Likely To Have Children With Autism. Studies showed that mental illness and autism may share genetic risk factors, therefore, the perpetration of child abuse by grandparents and experience of abuse in childhood by the mother may be indicators of genetic risk for autism in the child, the study authors write. Childhood abuse is associated with a wide array of health problems in the person who experiences it, including both mental health outcomes like depression and anxiety, and physical health outcomes like depression and anxiety, and physical health outcomes like obesity and lung disease, said senior study author Marc Weisskopf, an associate professor of environmental and occupational epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health, in a statement. This article accurately demonstrates the correlation of instant gratification of the InterWebs and immediacy of "news" with lousy proof-reading: “Childhood abuse is associated with a wide array of ...

Despite being bombarded with advertisements about dentures, the truth is many people maintain their natural teeth in old age. In fact, more people than ever before are in a position to keep their natural teeth. Advances in oral health care, education and personal habits probably account for this trend. But for people who naturally lose their teeth or live with advanced tooth decay, it's perfectly normal to want dentures and even advisable to get them if they enhance the ability to chew food and maintain confidence.

Naturally, if somebody is not well, we should have sympathy and wish the person well, but getting more information will make it easier to get that kind of public sympathy”.

The first is that his call indicates he has not been keeping himself abreast with the pronouncements of President Mills. President Mills has been bold enough to make public his health condition. That person must however also be ready to be tested too. Why will the NPP not accept this challenge if they are so eager to know the President's health status.

“Over the life course, coping strategies that are effective in ‘preserving’ the mental health of blacks may work in concert with social, economic and environmental inequalities to produce physical health disparities in middle age and later life.”. The relationship between stressful life events and depression varies by the level of unhealthy behaviors. Controlling for the extent of stressful life events a person has experienced, unhealthy behaviors seem to protect against depression in African Americans but lead to higher levels of depression in whites. Since negative health behaviors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, drug use and overeating especially comfort foods also have direct and debilitating effects on physical health, these behaviors—along with the difficult living conditions that give rise to them—contribute to the disparities in mortality and physical health problems between black and white populations. These disparities in physical ...

The principal factors responsible for increasing life expectancy from less than 50 years to more than 70 years in wealthy countries are to be found outside the health care system as it is traditionally defined and, instead, in the broader socioeconomic environment. There are substantial differences in health status among wealthy countries today. So the differences in health status among the wealthy countries of the world are actually quite substantial. 3 Differences in health status among wealthy societies, and among regions within them, are a function of differences in the character of the socioeconomic environment and civil society, and in societal investment in the early parts of the ...

Why Good Health Is Important. Good health.. it’s something that everyone’s heard about and been told about, repeatedly. The very mention of it conjures up images of the doctor recommending your five-a-day and exercise; seemingly the answer to most issues. Not that we would wish to go to the doctor unless near death, very British that. But good health is genuinely important, both the physical side and the mental. That said, not always in the way one expects. Physical. Everyone knows what the result of eating too much with not enough exercise looks like. If you’ve sat on a plane beside a big example, you’ll know all too well. The dangers of obesity are well documented; death is a pretty good example of such. Yet, often it is social pressure that influences change and illustrates why good health is important. Today’s society claims to be much more tolerant and understanding, but we’re not really, if we’re being honest. Judgements are made on people in split seconds, be it for an ...

... By Diane Swanbrow News and Information Services U-M researchers from the Institute for Social Research ISR will examine how everyday stress affects health and well-being in a new study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. For the study, researchers will be asking 100 residents of Ypsilanti about the stresses they face and how they cope. Participants will receive a total of $150 for talking with interviewers and having their blood pressure, pulse and weight measured. The project is part of a larger research program on mental health. "We're not only interested in major life stresses," says David R. Williams, professor of sociology and senior research scientist at ISR. "We're also interested in learning more about the effects of relatively minor stresses, like having car trouble, not having enough time to spend with family and friends, and having someone 'cut' in front of you in line. Do these types of everyday stresses lead to poorer health and, if so, how does ...

The dose for acne is a low dose usually 50mg twice a day or 100mg once a day - you don't have to take 2 the first day.

(1/4815) Good health care: patient and professional perspectives.

Many health needs assessment exercises are professionally led, employing complex epidemiological methods. An alternative method that gives valuable information about patient preferences is a forced-choice questionnaire, which this study used in five practices in the West of Scotland. In each practice, patient-centred care was the most highly valued attribute of service provision.  (+info)

(2/4815) The use of targets to improve the performance of health care providers: a discussion of government policy.

The aim of this discussion paper is to examine the advantages and drawbacks of employing targets, or performance indicators, to improve the performance of those delivering health care services. The paper is based on an examination of two target-setting policies initiated by Government: the 1992 Health of the Nation strategy and the 1990 General Practitioners' Contract. It is argued that the introduction of both the General Practitioners' Contract and the Health of the Nation have indeed been accompanied by improvements in performance, however, there are a number of problems with targets. They tend to focus on those things that are most easily measured, and they may foster complacency on the part of providers who have already achieved upper target limits, and defensiveness on the part of those performing badly. National targets may skew local priorities; they may also be unrealistic and unattainable for particular, less privileged population groups. They may serve to widen inequalities in health, and can exacerbate the 'inverse care law' by encouraging providers to direct their efforts at the more advantaged sections of society, where such efforts are more likely to pay off in terms of overall improvements in the target level achieved. Finally, the achievement of some targets will not necessarily result in better health outcomes. The paper concludes that a target-setting approach to improving the quality of care must be based on the use of appropriate indicators, and must take account of differences between more and less advantaged sections of society.  (+info)

(3/4815) Rider injury rates and emergency medical services at equestrian events.

BACKGROUND: Horse riding is a hazardous pastime, with a number of studies documenting high rates of injury and death among horse riders in general. This study focuses on the injury experience of cross country event riders, a high risk subset of horse riders. METHOD: Injury data were collected at a series of 35 equestrian events in South Australia from 1990 to 1998. RESULTS: Injury rates were found to be especially high among event riders, with frequent falls, injuries, and even deaths. The highest injury rates were among the riders competing at the highest levels. CONCLUSION: There is a need for skilled emergency medical services at equestrian events.  (+info)

(4/4815) Patterns of care and survival for adolescents and young adults with acute leukaemia--a population-based study.

We report a population-based study of patterns of care and survival for people with acute leukaemia diagnosed at age 15-29 years during 1984-94 in regions of England and Wales covered by specialist leukaemia registries. There were 879 patients: 417 with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and 462 with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). For ALL, actuarial survival rates were 43% at 5 years after diagnosis and 37% at 10 years. Survival improved significantly between 1984-88 and 1989-94 for those aged 15-19 at diagnosis. Patients entered in national clinical trials and those not entered had similar survival rates. Survival rates were similar at teaching and non-teaching hospitals and at hospitals treating different numbers of study patients per year. For AML, survival rates were 42% at 5 years after diagnosis and 39% at 10 years. Survival improved significantly between 1984-88 and 1989-94. Patients entered in the Medical Research Council AML10 trial had a higher survival rate than those who were in the earlier AML9 trial. Survival did not vary with category of hospital. We conclude that survival has improved for adolescents and young adults with acute leukaemia but that there is at present no evidence that centralized treatment results in a survival benefit for patients in this age group.  (+info)

(5/4815) Where do people go for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases?

CONTEXT: Major public health resources are devoted to the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) through public STD clinics. However, little is known about where people actually receive treatment for STDs. METHODS: As part of the National Health and Social Life Survey, household interviews were performed from February to September 1992 with 3,432 persons aged 18-59. Weighted population estimates and multinomial response methods were used to describe the prevalence of self-reported STDs and patterns of treatment utilization by persons who ever had a bacterial or viral STD. RESULTS: An estimated two million STDs were self-reported in the previous year, and 22 million 18-59-year-olds self-reported lifetime STDs. Bacterial STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, nongonococcal urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease and syphilis) were more common than viral STDs (genital herpes, genital warts, hepatitis and HIV). Genital warts were the most commonly reported STD in the past year, while gonorrhea was the most common ever-reported STD. Almost half of all respondents who had ever had an STD had gone to a private practice for treatment (49%); in comparison, only 5% of respondents had sought treatment at an STD clinic. Respondents with a bacterial STD were seven times more likely to report going to an STD clinic than were respondents with a viral STD--except for chlamydia, which was more likely to be treated at family planning clinics. Men were significantly more likely than women to go to an STD clinic. Young, poor or black respondents were all more likely to use a family planning clinic for STD treatment than older, relatively wealthy or white respondents. Age, sexual history and geographic location did not predict particular types of treatment-seeking. CONCLUSIONS: The health care utilization patterns for STD treatment in the United States are complex. Specific disease diagnosis, gender, race and income status all affect where people will seek treatment. These factors need to be taken into account when STD prevention strategies are being developed.  (+info)

(6/4815) The just provision of health care: a reply to Elizabeth Telfer.

Dr Hillel Steiner in this reply to Elizabeth Telfer takes each of her arguments for different arrangements of a health service and examines them--'four positions which can be located on a linear ideological spectrum'--and adds a fifth which could have the effect of 'turning the alleged linear spectrum into a circle'. Underlying both Elizabeth Telfer's article and Dr Steiner's reply, the base is inescapably a 'political' one, but cannot be abandoned in favour of purely philosophical concepts. Whatever the attitude of mind of the reader of these two papers to the provision of a health service, the stimulus to more careful assessments of our own National Health Service and its problems can only be good.  (+info)

(7/4815) The present state and future prospects of occupational health in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh is a relatively young and developing country. At the present time, like in most developing countries, a clear demarcation between occupational health care and general medical care is difficult to be recognized in Bangladesh. Occupational health is a fairly new field, as the country is undergoing industrialization and occupational health activities are operated by several ministries, such as Labour, Health, Industry and Transport. Legal foundations of the occupational health-care system based on British India and Pakistani era, were adopted and amended by the Government of Bangladesh after the liberation of the country in 1971. Most of the Labour laws have been rectified by the Government of Bangladesh according to the ILO Conventions. Reconsideration of the occupational health service system avoiding duplication for the 'occupational health' component in several ministries might be helpful to achieve the successful provision of an occupational health service in the developing Bangladesh.  (+info)

What are some issues that can affect the health care delivery system?


  • Can someone help me with examples. Like Race can affect the health care delivery system, and explain why in short. Thanks!! I just need topics to write my paper.
  • The main issue affecting the delivery of health care is stupidity, institutionalized stupidity. Both the "medical" and political/social components are stuck in the the 3rd century. The bases of the present system is the treatment of symptoms not the curing of disease, please do not take my word for it check it out fully. I discovered this in 1986 http://www.hubpages.com/hub/Speed-healing-of-trauma-injuries-through-self-directed-regeneration and no "official" person will touch it because it works. Sadly there is no money in healthy people so the parasites/system keep you sick and paying for the doctors upper class life styles.


What is a health care delivery system provider?


  • I have an assignment where I have to choose a website for a local health care delivery system provider and answer a bunch of questions about it but I am not quite sure what exactly they mean by a health care delivery system provider. Can I just choose my local hospitals website? I am confused!
  • Anyone who provides medical services is a health care delivery system provider. Nurse, hospital, doctor, EMT, chiropractor, and others that give you treatment


what are the characteristics of a good health care provider.?


  • what are the characteristics of a good health care provider.? how does the lack of these affect the delivery of health care?
  • Personally what I look for is staff and a doctor who are attentive and through, who take the time to examine me and listen to what I have to say. My Mother`s life has been saved twice by going to a doctor who took the time to investigate a seemingly harmless little blip on a mamogram or ultra sound, yet it turned out to be cancer (one time breast cancer, another time Uterine cancer). When she was transfered to another hospital for surgery, the doctors there said they never would have even noticed it, yet because it was caught in very early stages, her survival statistics were incredibly increased. I have been to doctors who have been too prideful to realise they are wrong and insist on treatment or not give me or my child treatment on things they are VERY wrong about (my kid broke out in a rash after I put baby oil on her..the doctor didn`t even look at the rash, but assumed it was breast milk and told me to stop breasfeeding, eventhough I INSISTED it had to be the baby oil. I was right and completely ignored what he told me. I got cream from another doctor. I will never go back to that doctor, he is completely useless). I have also had doctors who have performed things on me without giving me forwarning or letting me know the risks involved. I hate being kept in the dark about things that involve my body. I have lost trust with these doctors and am very weary of going to somone who does not take the time to find out how to properly treat me. If I feel something ain`t right, I am getting a 2nd or even 3rd opinion and being sure to consult every well known medical encyclopedia or web site I know until I get to the bottom of what is really going on!!


How will health care be affected by legalizing marijuana?

How does the current health care system in America work?


  • I know there is a huge debate about universal health care and such on health care reform in America. But what is it that makes sparked this reform? How does the current system work and what it wrong with it? I'm trying to find the answers online, but I can't find anything that can answer my question. Thank you for all responses!
  • The real answer will be too long to post here, but a few highlights. Health care used to be under the control of doctors. In WWII the US government unconstitutionally froze wages and prices so in order to obtain and retain the best employees, employers had to add benefits as they couldn't adjust wages. One of the benes added was health insurance which was not really needed (not anywhere as important as it is today). After WWII the link remained--in peoples' minds and in fact. Come 1966 and the feds decided to take their unconstitutional Social Security program a step farther and create Medicare--now the feds were in health care big time. Medicare has grown over time and was always supposed to ensure that no doc or hospital ever got a profit from treating Medicare patients--unfortunately docs have been taken to the cleaners on the deal which is why it's getting harder and harder to find one who takes Medicare. Also premiums are on the rise, particularly in the last decade: In the US, Medicare is going bankrupt. In 1998, Medicare premiums were $43.80 and in 2008 will be $96.40--up 120%. "Medigap" insurance is common because of the 20% co-pay required for service. Medicare HMOs are common because they reduce that burden without an extra charge in many cases. HOWEVER, many procedures which used to have no or a low co-pay NOW cost the full 20% for the HMO Medicare patient. ALSO the prescription coverage they tended to offer has been REDUCED in many cases to conform to the insane "donut hole" coverage of the feds. Doctors are leaving Medicare because of the low and slow pay AND because the crazy government wants to "balance" their Ponzi scheme on the backs of doctors. "That dark cloud lurking over the shoulder of every Massachusetts physician is Medicare. If Congress does not act, doctors' payments from Medicare will be cut by about 5 percent annually, beginning next year through 2012, creating a financial hailstorm that would wreak havoc with already strained practices. Cumulatively, the proposed cuts represent a 31 percent reduction in Medicare reimbursement. If the cuts are adjusted for practice-cost inflation, the American Medical Association says Medicare payment rates to physicians in 2013 would be less than half of what they were in 1991." http://www.massmed.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=vs_mar05_top&TEMPLATE=/CM/ContentDisplay.cfm&CONTENTID=11037 In the very early 1970s, others looked at the growth of health care as we made more scientific advances (DNA was only discovered in 1953, for example) and decided that being able to have control over life and death should be pretty profitable, so the concept of "managed care" based on the LIE that doctors were making "too much money" was born and embraced by those who couldn't get into or through medical school. The door was open for the hijacking of medical care and the skyrocketing of prices. As you see with Medicare payments, doctors would NOT be the beneficiaries. Since that time the boldness of insurance companies to ignore their contracts as well as antitrust laws has grown wildly and the government sits and twiddles its thumbs wasting time and tax dollars on "investigating" Microsoft and baseball instead of enforcing laws. Hospitals have decided that they'll charge the uninsured about 3 times what they charge the insured and have become aggressive in going after CITIZENS who don't pay their bills in full. As always, the government has ensured problems will exist with their mandates that everyone be treated at an ER if he has a life-threatening condition, regardless of ability to pay. Sounds good on paper. Hospitals deliberately misinterpret the mandate to mean "treat all illegals no matter how little they need medical care and bill the heck out of the taxpayer." Combine this with the stupid governmental mandate of "compassionate entry" (the Border Patrol is instructed to let in everyone who is ill so they can be treated here, knowing full well in many cases the taxpayer is going to eat the bill), and you have hard-working Americans paying more and seeing portions of their hospitals shut down because of governmental meddling and their inability to do their job: secure the borders. A few things that should be of interest to any thinking man on the subject of health care in the US--in other words, the pols won't discuss this and the media give it short shrift: When 75% of the people who declare bankruptcy over medical bills ARE INSURED, then insurance is CLEARLY not the answer. "Aldrich’s situation is "asinine" but increasingly common, said Dr. Deborah Thorne of Ohio University. Thorne, co-author of a widely quoted 2005 study that found medical bills contributed to nearly half of the 1.5 million personal bankruptcies filed in the U.S. each year, said that ratio has likely worsened since the data was gathered. ... Like Aldrich, Thorne said, three-quarters of the individuals in the study who declared bankruptcy because of health problems were insured. " http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20201807/ Linda Peeno, MD testified that SHE had often denied treatment JUST to save the insurance company money http://www.thenationalcoalition.org/DrPeenotestimony.html Furthermore: "the vast majority of health insurance policies are through for-profit stock companies. They are in the process of “shedding lives” as some term it when “undesirable” customers are lost through various means, including raising premiums and co-pays and decreasing benefits (Britt, “Health insurers getting bigger cut of medical dollars,” 15 October 2004, investors.com). That same Investors Business Daily article from 2004 noted the example of Anthem, another insurance company. They said the top five executives (not just the CEO) received an average of an 817 percent increase in compensation between 2000 and 2003. The CEO, for example, had his compensation go from $2.5 million to $25 million during that time period. About $21 million of that was in stock payouts, the article noted. A 2006 article, “U.S. Health Insurance: More Market Domination, More CEO Compensation” (hcrenewal.blogspot.com) notes that in 56 percent of 294 metropolitan areas one insurer “controls more than half the business in health maintenance organization and preferred provider networks underwriting." In addition to having the most enrollees, they also are the biggest purchasers of health care and set the price and coverage terms. “’The results is double-digit premium increases from 2001 and 2004—peaking with a 13.9 percent jump in 2003—soaring well above inflation and wages increases.’" Where is all that money going? The article quotes a Wall Street Journal article looking at the compensation of the CEO of UnitedHealth Group. His salary and bonus is $8 million annually. He has benefits such as the use of a private jet. He has stock-option fortunes worth $1.6 billion." --Save America, Save the World by Cassandra Nathan pp. 127-128 "Insurance Companies Robbing Patients Robbing patients to pay CEOs leads to unprecedented medical insurance corporation greed.

What do you think is the cause of runaway health care cost?


  • Health Care professionals say it is the high cost of malpractice insurance? Is it that the insurance companies are too greedy or the patients are too litigeous? So, who is zooming who here? Would state purchase of cheap foreign doctors help? or GI bill(state sponsorship) for med students who praqctice at state hospitals.
  • Healthcare cost is rising because we the people don't have a say so. Insurance companies have taken over health care. Physicians don't have the power in what they can do or not do. It is completely controlled by the insurance companies. Here is a scenario, plastic surgery or laser eye surgery. They do not cost near as much as a basic surgery in the hospital. Why because they are not controlled by innsurance plans. Most insurance don't cover these types of surgery. so the doctors are left to provide QUALITY service and competitive prices to keep clients coming back. Therefore, they are providing quality and are affordable. The customers are able to choose and select who they want to go to because they are paying for it.


What parts of the health care system in Canada is already privatized?


  • Are hospitals, doctors offices and emergency rooms part of the health care system that are already privatized? If so, what other parts of the health care system is already privatized? Thanks for all your help!
  • About 75 percent of health care services in Canada are delivered privately but funded publicly. The government does not run most of the hospitals and clinics; it only pays them for the services they provide, and sets the fees they can charge. Some things are not covered by the government system, including prescription drugs and dental care. To cover those needs, most Canadians have supplemental private insurance, which is usually paid for by their employer.


How can we reduce Health Care costs without Federal Insurance?


  • National Health care is a financial disaster waiting to happen, in my opinion. Since we need a solution that the majority can agree upon, not just one mandated by one political party, what can we do to reduce health care costs other than a National Health care system. The Federal Government is notoriously inefficient. There must be a better way than letting them take over 10% of our economy!
  • I agree with a lot of what Nemisis said, but I think I can simplify it even further. Insurance is gambling. How do we keep Casino's from getting more and more corrupt, like the insurance industry is? Caps on profits. If an insurance company had to pay out 90 cents of every dollar that it takes in, it would have to lower premiums. Pass transparent billing, enforce contract law and anti-trust laws. That is very important too, but if insurance companies were obligated to return a percentage of what they take in, not a percentage of net, but a percentage of each and every dollar they touch, health care costs would come down to a realistic level. One law, enforce the others. Done!
