*  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 REQUIRED. More than 90% of us are ...

While measures of health status vary by state, Southerners as a group are generally more likely than those in other regions to have a number of chronic illnesses and experience worse health outcomes. For example, most of the states with the highest rates of obesity and diabetes are in the South, and many southern states are among those with the highest infant mortality rates and cancer death rates in the country.

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 health problems in the person who ex...

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. Like bones in the body, teeth lose their density and strength with age. Gum diseases can also cause tooth loss, resulting in lower self confidence and quality of life for older people who don't seek medical t...

Around 1950, the United States had among the best health outcomes measured by mortality indicators, but 60 years later, it ranked behind the other rich countries and a number of poorer ones. The differences in mortality outcomes between the United States and the healthiest nations today represent substantial inequalities in health.

*  AKUFO-ADDO TOO MUST DISCLOSE HIS HEALTH STATUS
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”. However, there are two crucial points that we would want to make about the call of Dr. Arthur Kennedy on President Mills to make public his health status. 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. Arthur Kennedy that the President's health status must be made public. But so also must be made public the health status of all those who are seeking the highest office of the land. They would want to know if the NPP flag-bearer suffers from cirrhosis of the liver. Ghanaians would also want to know if Nana Akufo Addo has prostrate cancer a...

Youth facing greater health risks today than in past; those in developing world face increasing challenges, Lancet series suggests Published on April 27, 2012 at 12:48 PM. Young people today face greater risks to their physical and mental health than generations past, new research has found, with adolescents in the developing world rapidly acquiring the unhealthy habits of their wealthier counterparts, the Financial Times reports. A series of studies published on Wednesday in the Lancet present a general portrait of increasing hazard due to drug and alcohol abuse, unprotected sex, violence and inadequate employment opportunities, the newspaper writes Rowland, 4/25.

“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 health and mortality are greatest at middle age and beyond, Ja...

Through this research we have come to understand how the health of a population as a whole is influenced by social and economic conditions and the "psychosocial" environment on the one hand, and by experiences during sensitive periods in early biological development, on the other. 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 life course. Overall, higher mortality was clo...

(1/5472) Design and trial of a new questionnaire for occupational health surveys in companies.

In this article we present an example of our method for instrument development. This method is called the Development Cycle. It consists of four main stages: (1) defining the requirements for an instrument; (2) research, design and pilot testing; (3) implementation and (4) evaluation. An application of the Development Cycle was realized within a project for the development of a basic questionnaire about work and health, to be used at periodic health surveys. This questionnaire had to identify work and work-related health problems in employees with divergent occupations and working conditions. The design of the instrument and the results of its trial in 517 employees is presented. The evaluation of the test results and the modification of the questionnaire are discussed. From 1995, the questionnaire has been implemented in the Dutch OHS services quite successfully.  (+info)

(2/5472) Clinical experience and choice of drug therapy for human immunodeficiency virus disease.

To determine if providers experienced in the management of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease preferred different treatment regimens than providers with less experience, we analyzed data from a national survey of primary care providers' preferred regimens for the management of 30 HIV-related medical conditions. We mailed questionnaires to 999 correct addresses of providers in > 20 cities in the United States in May 1996. We received 524 responses (response rate, 52%). We found a statistically significant association between the number of HIV-infected patients cared for by the provider and the likelihood that the provider would report prescribing highly active antiretroviral therapy and multidrug combinations for treatment of opportunistic infections. Providers with few HIV-infected patients were substantially less likely to report using new therapeutic regimens or new diagnostic tools. We concluded that the preferred regimens of experienced providers are more likely to be consistent with the latest information on treatment for HIV disease than are those of less experienced providers.  (+info)

(3/5472) 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)

(4/5472) Women's interest in vaginal microbicides.

CONTEXT: Each year, an estimated 15 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV, occur in the United States. Women are not only at a disadvantage because of their biological and social susceptibility, but also because of the methods that are available for prevention. METHODS: A nationally representative sample of 1,000 women aged 18-44 in the continental United States who had had sex with a man in the last 12 months were interviewed by telephone. Analyses identified levels and predictors of women's worry about STDs and interest in vaginal microbicides, as well as their preferences regarding method characteristics. Numbers of potential U.S. microbicide users were estimated. RESULTS: An estimated 21.3 million U.S. women have some potential current interest in using a microbicidal product. Depending upon product specifications and cost, as many as 6.0 million women who are worried about getting an STD would be very interested in current use of a microbicide. These women are most likely to be unmarried and not cohabiting, of low income and less education, and black or Hispanic. They also are more likely to have visited a doctor for STD symptoms or to have reduced their sexual activity because of STDs, to have a partner who had had other partners in the past year, to have no steady partner or to have ever used condoms for STD prevention. CONCLUSIONS: A significant minority of women in the United States are worried about STDs and think they would use vaginal microbicides. The development, testing and marketing of such products should be expedited.  (+info)

(5/5472) Pregnancies averted among U.S. teenagers by the use of contraceptives.

CONTEXT: The personal and social costs associated with teenage pregnancy in the United States concern many policymakers and researchers, yet the role of contraception in preventing these pregnancies has not been adequately quantified. METHODS: Published estimates of contraceptive effectiveness were applied to 1995 National Survey of Family Growth data on sexual and contraceptive practices in order to estimate the number of pregnancies averted through the use of contraceptives by U.S. teenagers. Four scenarios of contraceptives access--from current levels of access to highly restricted access--and teenagers' sexual and contraceptive practices in response to such restrictions are used to project the potential impact on pregnancies among teenagers. RESULTS: Current levels of contraceptive use averted an estimated 1.65 million pregnancies among 15-19-year-old women in the United States during 1995. If these young women had been denied access to both prescription and over-the-counter contraceptive methods, an estimated one million additional pregnancies (ranging from 750,000 to 1.25 million) would have occurred, assuming some decrease in sexual activity. These pregnancies would have led to 480,000 live births, 390,000 abortions, 120,000 miscarriages, 10,000 ectopic pregnancies and 37 maternal deaths. CONCLUSIONS: Contraceptive use by teenage women prevents pregnancies and negative pregnancy-related health consequences that can disrupt the lives of adolescent women and that have substantial societal costs. Continued and expanded access to contraceptives for adolescents is a critically important public health strategy.  (+info)

(8/5472) Residents' exposure to aboriginal health issues. Survey of family medicine programs in Canada.

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Canadian family medicine residency programs currently have objectives, staff, and clinical experiences for adequately exposing residents to aboriginal health issues. DESIGN: A one-page questionnaire was developed to survey the details of teaching about and exposure to aboriginal health issues. SETTING: Family medicine programs in Canada. PARTICIPANTS: All Canadian family medicine program directors in the 18 programs (16 at universities and two satellite programs) were surveyed between October 1997 and March 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Whether programs had teaching objectives for exposing residents to aboriginal health issues, whether they had resource people available, what elective and core experiences in aboriginal health were offered, and what types of experiences were available. RESULTS: Response rate was 100%. No programs had formal, written curriculum objectives for residency training in aboriginal health issues, although some were considering them. Some programs, however, had objectives for specific weekend or day sessions. No programs had a strategy for encouraging enrollment of residents of aboriginal origin. Eleven programs had at least one resource person with experience in aboriginal health issues, and 12 had access to community-based aboriginal groups. Core experiences were all weekend seminars or retreats. Elective experiences in aboriginal health were available in 16 programs, and 11 programs were active on reserves. CONCLUSIONS: Many Canadian family medicine programs give residents some exposure to aboriginal health issues, but most need more expertise and direction on these issues. Some programs have unique approaches to teaching aboriginal health care that could be shared. Formalized objectives derived in collaboration with other family medicine programs and aboriginal groups could substantially improve the quality of education in aboriginal health care in Canada.  (+info)

----------

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."

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. "

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."

Thus many have decided UHC like much of the rest of the world has must surely be the answer little regarding the FACT it does not work.

US can't pull it off. Hillarycare can't work--one of her problems is her refusal to deal with the massive illegalities of the handful of insurers who rip us off. However, Romney of Taxachusetts put her basic plan into place. Result: "Massachusetts announced that spending on its health care plan would increase by $400 million in 2008, a cost expected to be borne largely by taxpayers."

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.


What is the difference between Health Insurance and Health care Program?


Is it OK to have just the health care program and not have the Health Insurance Plan? I can get Health care program for half the monthly premium as compared to the Health Insurance Plan. Please advise? Is it advisable?
----------

Health insurance is the one that pays for your medical expenses should you incur one. While health care program is designed for the continuity better living despite health disability.. Long Term Health Care Program is best be planned ahead.

If you find it suitable for you, then it's fine. Otherwise, seek for a medical/legal health expert for a better advise.


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!
