*  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. ...

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.

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.

“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 ...

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 ...

Our expert says: CyberDoc Dear Lisa, Yes finish the Co-amoxyclav first - both are antibiotics and can cause severe diarrhoea if you take it together. 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.

(1/10025) Health status of Persian Gulf War veterans: self-reported symptoms, environmental exposures and the effect of stress.

BACKGROUND: Most US troops returned home from the Persian Gulf War (PGW) by Spring 1991 and many began reporting increased health symptoms and medical problems soon after. This investigation examines the relationships between several Gulf-service environmental exposures and health symptom reporting, and the role of traumatic psychological stress on the exposure-health symptom relationships. METHODS: Stratified, random samples of two cohorts of PGW veterans, from the New England area (n = 220) and from the New Orleans area (n = 71), were selected from larger cohorts being followed longitudinally since arrival home from the Gulf. A group of PGW-era veterans deployed to Germany (n = 50) served as a comparison group. The study protocol included questionnaires, a neuropsychological test battery, an environmental interview, and psychological diagnostic interviews. This report focuses on self-reported health symptoms and exposures of participants who completed a 52-item health symptom checklist and a checklist of environmental exposures. RESULTS: The prevalence of reported symptoms was greater in both Persian Gulf-deployed cohorts compared to the Germany cohort. Analyses of the body-system symptom scores (BSS), weighted to account for sampling design, and adjusted by age, sex, and education, indicated that Persian Gulf-deployed veterans were more likely to report neurological, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiac, dermatological, musculoskeletal, psychological and neuropsychological system symptoms than Germany veterans. Using a priori hypotheses about the toxicant effects of exposure to specific toxicants, the relationships between self-reported exposures and body-system symptom groupings were examined through multiple regression analyses, controlling for war-zone exposure and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Self-reported exposures to pesticides, debris from Scuds, chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents, and smoke from tent heaters each were significantly related to increased reporting of specific predicted BSS groupings. CONCLUSIONS: Veterans deployed to the Persian Gulf have higher self-reported prevalence of health symptoms compared to PGW veterans who were deployed only as far as Germany. Several Gulf-service environmental exposures are associated with increased health symptom reporting involving predicted body-systems, after adjusting for war-zone stressor exposures and PTSD.  (+info)

(2/10025) Socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population: the contribution of working conditions.

BACKGROUND: The aim was to study the impact of different categories of working conditions on the association between occupational class and self-reported health in the working population. METHODS: Data were collected through a postal survey conducted in 1991 among inhabitants of 18 municipalities in the southeastern Netherlands. Data concerned 4521 working men and 2411 working women and included current occupational class (seven classes), working conditions (physical working conditions, job control, job demands, social support at work), perceived general health (very good or good versus less than good) and demographic confounders. Data were analysed with logistic regression techniques. RESULTS: For both men and women we observed a higher odds ratio for a less than good perceived general health in the lower occupational classes (adjusted for confounders). The odds of a less than good perceived general health was larger among people reporting more hazardous physical working conditions, lower job control, lower social support at work and among those in the highest category of job demands. Results were similar for men and women. Men and women in the lower occupational classes reported more hazardous physical working conditions and lower job control as compared to those in higher occupational classes. High job demands were more often reported in the higher occupational classes, while social support at work was not clearly related to occupational class. When physical working conditions and job control were added simultaneously to a model with occupational class and confounders, the odds ratios for occupational classes were reduced substantially. For men, the per cent change in the odds ratios for the occupational classes ranged between 35% and 83%, and for women between 35% and 46%. CONCLUSIONS: A substantial part of the association between occupational class and a less than good perceived general health in the working population could be attributed to a differential distribution of hazardous physical working conditions and a low job control across occupational classes. This suggests that interventions aimed at improving these working conditions might result in a reduction of socioeconomic inequalities in health in the working population.  (+info)

(3/10025) The meaning and use of the cumulative rate of potential life lost.

BACKGROUND: The 'years of potential life lost' (YPLL) is a public health measure in widespread use. However, the index does not apply to the comparisons between different populations or across different time periods. It also has the limit of being cross-sectional in nature, quantifying current burden but not future impact on society. METHODS: A new years-lost index is proposed-the 'cumulative rate of potential life lost' (CRPLL). It is a simple combination of the 'cumulative rate' (CR) and the YPLL. Vital statistics in Taiwan are used for demonstration and comparison of the new index with existing health-status measures. RESULTS: The CRPLL serves the purpose of between-group comparison. It can also be considered a projection of future impact, under the assumption that the age-specific mortality rates in the current year prevail. For a rare cause of death, it can be interpreted as the expected years (days) of potential life lost during a subject's lifetime. CONCLUSIONS: The CRPLL has several desirable properties, rendering it a promising alternative for quantifying health status.  (+info)

(4/10025) Thiamine deficiency is prevalent in a selected group of urban Indonesian elderly people.

This cross-sectional study involved 204 elderly individuals (93 males and 111 females). Subjects were randomly recruited using a list on which all 60-75 y-old-people living in seven sub-villages in Jakarta were included. The usual food intake was estimated using semiquantitative food frequency questionnaires. Hemoglobin, plasma retinol, vitamin B-12, red blood cell folate and the percentage stimulation of erythrocyte transketolase (ETK), as an indicator of thiamine status, were analyzed. Median energy intake was below the assessed requirement. More than 75% of the subjects had iron and thiamine intakes of approximately 2/3 of the recommended daily intake, and 20.2% of the study population had folate intake of approximately 2/3 of the recommended daily intake. Intakes of vitamins A and B-12 were adequate. Biochemical assessments demonstrated that 36.6% of the subjects had low thiamine levels (ETK stimulation > 25%). The elderly men tended to have lower thiamine levels than the elderly women. The overall prevalence of anemia was 28.9%, and the elderly women were affected more than the elderly men. Low biochemical status of vitamins A, B-12 and RBC folate was found in 5.4%, 8.8 % and 2.9% of the subjects, respectively. Dietary intakes of thiamine and folate were associated with ETK stimulation and plasma vitamin B-12 concentration (r = 0.176, P = 0.012 and r = 0.77, P = 0.001), respectively. Results of this study suggest that anemia, thiamine and possibly vitamin B-12 deficiency are prevalent in the elderly living in Indonesia. Clearly, micronutrient supplementation may be beneficial for the Indonesian elderly population living in underprivileged areas.  (+info)

(5/10025) Diabetic peripheral neuropathy and quality of life.

The quality of life (QOL) of 79 people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and 37 non-diabetic controls was assessed using the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP). The NHP consists of six domains assessing energy, sleep, pain, physical mobility, emotional reactions and social isolation. Symptomatic diabetic neuropathy was present in 41 of the patients. The neuropathy patients had significantly higher scores (impaired QOL) in 5/6 NHP domains than either the other diabetic patients (p < 0.01) or the non-diabetic (p < 0.001) controls. These were: emotional reaction, energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep. The diabetic patients without neuropathy also had significantly impaired QOL for 4/6 NHP domains compared with the non-diabetic control group (p < 0.05) (energy, pain, physical mobility and sleep). This quantification of the detrimental effect on QOL of diabetes, and in particular of chronic symptomatic peripheral diabetic neuropathy, emphasizes the need for further research into effective management of these patients.  (+info)

(6/10025) Why do short term workers have high mortality?

Increased mortality is often reported among workers in short term employment. This may indicate either a health-related selection process or the presence of different lifestyle or social conditions among short term workers. The authors studied these two aspects of short term employment among 16,404 Danish workers in the reinforced plastics industry who were hired between 1978 and 1985 and were followed to the end of 1988. Preemployment hospitalization histories for 1977-1984 were ascertained and were related to length of employment between 1978 and 1988. Workers who had been hospitalized prior to employment showed a 20% higher risk of early termination of employment than those never hospitalized (rate ratio (RR) = 1.20, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.16-1.29), and the risk increased with number of hospitalizations. For workers with two or more preemployment hospitalizations related to alcohol abuse or violence, the rate ratios for short term employment were 2.30 (95% CI 1.74-3.06) and 1.86 (95% CI 1.35-2.56), respectively. An unhealthy lifestyle may also be a determinant of short term employment. While it is possible in principle to adjust for lifestyle factors if proper data are collected, the health-related selection of workers requires careful consideration when choosing a reference group for comparative studies of cumulative occupational exposure.  (+info)

(7/10025) Economic consequences of the progression of rheumatoid arthritis in Sweden.

OBJECTIVE: To develop a simulation model for analysis of the cost-effectiveness of treatments that affect the progression of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: The Markov model was developed on the basis of a Swedish cohort of 116 patients with early RA who were followed up for 5 years. The majority of patients had American College of Rheumatology (ACR) functional class II disease, and Markov states indicating disease severity were defined based on Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) scores. Costs were calculated from data on resource utilization and patients' work capacity. Utilities (preference weights for health states) were assessed using the EQ-5D (EuroQol) questionnaire. Hypothetical treatment interventions were simulated to illustrate the model. RESULTS: The cohort distribution among the 6 Markov states clearly showed the progression of the disease over 5 years of followup. Costs increased with increasing severity of the Markov states, and total costs over 5 years were higher for patients who were in more severe Markov states at diagnosis. Utilities correlated well with the Markov states, and the EQ-5D was able to discriminate between patients with different HAQ scores within ACR functional class II. CONCLUSION: The Markov model was able to assess disease progression and costs in RA. The model can therefore be a useful tool in calculating the cost-effectiveness of different interventions aimed at changing the progression of the disease.  (+info)

(8/10025) Risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon.

OBJECTIVES: To identify risk factors for injuries and other health problems occurring during or immediately after participation in a marathon. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was undertaken of participants in the 1993 Auckland Citibank marathon. Demographic data, information on running experience, training and injuries, and information on other lifestyle factors were obtained from participants before the race using an interviewer-administered questionnaire. Information on injuries and other health problems sustained during or immediately after the marathon were obtained by a self administered questionnaire. Logistic regression analyses were undertaken to identify significant risk factors for health problems. RESULTS: This study, one of only a few controlled epidemiological studies that have been undertaken of running injuries, has identified a number of risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. Men were at increased risk of hamstring and calf problems, whereas women were at increased risk of hip problems. Participation in a marathon for the first time, participation in other sports, illness in the two weeks before the marathon, current use of medication, and drinking alcohol once a month or more, were associated with increased self reported risks of problems. While increased training seemed to increase the risk of front thigh and hamstring problems, it may decrease the risk of knee problems. There are significant but complex relations between age and risk of injury or health problem. CONCLUSIONS: This study has identified certain high risk subjects and risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. In particular, subjects who have recently been unwell or are taking medication should weigh up carefully the pros and cons of participating.  (+info)

what are the difference between health status today and the past?


  • can you compare the health status, nutritional status, activities jobs etc. of adult, elderlymen and woman before and until now?
  • 30 years longer and lots more teeth! 200 years ago, people lived shorter lives but they were more functional (could walk, have sex, eat what they wanted) right up until they died. Now, we live a lot longer, but a huge percentage of our added life is in a nursing home. That being said, modern dentistry is amazing. There are 90 year olds with their own teeth - whereas 200 years ago, you'd be lucky if you still had your own teeth by the time you hit 40. Of course ... you'd be lucky if you hit 40 at all!

If the USA has the best medical technology in the world, why is our health status ranked so low?


  • Compared to other countries the US ranks approximately #40th in health status. Simply put, we are the 40th healthy nation.
  • My Opinion.. 1. Medicine and Medical procedures are too expensive for many American's. They go untreated or don't get the best care money can buy 2. Health insurance is not always available or too expensive 3. More education; proper diets and health issues should be addressed, advised, etc. I have others but I have to go....


What does the color of human waste tell about your health: I know black can mean blood, but what about green?


  • I am curious to know if I can get some insight on a person's health status by the color changes in human waste. Is it a good indicator of an underlying health problem, ie., too much fat, too much whatever, or not enough of something in the diet?
  • Usually the lower and upper GI tracts will absorb as much (and sometimes less) nutrients available in the food source, depending on the body's needs. When you injest a lot of items such as really green leafy veggies (Spinach, etc), or have "blue corn" chips, these can make your stool a different color. Sometimes your body doesn't need all the nutrients, and pass them, making stools look diferent than "usual". I'd suggest a fasting of food (but drink plenty of water and fruit juice) of 24-36 hours to cleanse the system. By that time, the stools should be more frequent, but back to a light brown. Then you'll have an idea if the color isn't correct, you may have a problem. Darker stools are indicative of blood loss occurring in the stomach or colon, or gastritis (common amongst alcohol drinkers, especially on empty stomachs). Green stools are usually indicative of diet. Get to a doctor for a hema-cult test to see if there's hidden blood in your stool! This could be benign, or as serious as colo-rectal cancer. Should you be of concern, please visit your primary care Physician, and ask for a stool exam. They'll swipe you, put it onto a test strip, and let you know of blood in your stool. If so, I recommend strongly that you proceed with further tests I'd rather have your doctor advise you about. Remember: "brown fluffies prevent the proctologist". Good luck! :)


The impact of the interrelationship between health, human development and sustainability on the health?


  • Describe the impact of the interrelationship between health, human development and sustainability on the health status of population groups. Is this the right answer? Or am I completely wrong? This is for Health and Human Development (Aust.). The physical, social, emotional and intellectual development that is related to the individual is at one end of the continuum and human development focusing on populations is at the other end of the continuum. In order for human development to continually improve, the initiatives, policies and strategies employed must be sustainable. If the practices leading to improved levels of human development are not sustainable, the level of human development currently being experienced may decrease for future generations. Development that will not jeopardise the opportunities for future generations to lead a productive and fulfilling life is referred to as sustainability. NEED TO KNOW FOR A TEST TOMORROW. Thanks in advance :)

How do you check up on restuarants for violations,food poisonings ?

  • This is a certificate they have to have showing in a place that you can see. You can also go to the health department, the County where they're located and ask. If it's food poisoning your going to have to be hospitalized and then you'll have a record. Just getting Ill isn't going to do it, you'll have to prove where you got Ill.


nurses should regularly involved in health education because?


  • Which one would it be 1-Nurses are a valuable resource of skills and knowledge that can affect health status 2-The Standards of Nursing Practice dictate that client education is the ultimate goal of nursing. My book has both of the answers however, because its NCLEX type therefore, which one is the BEST answer for it. Please don't just answer it do explain why you choose that answer.
  • The answer is clearly Number (1). Why? Number (1) is more true than Number (2). Re: "client education is the ultimate goal of nursing." That is a falsehood. Nursing is holistic in it's approach and education is a part of nursing but not it's "ultimate goal." So by default, I would select the first answer which happens to be the right answer as well. Could I be wrong? Oh sure. Nursing has gone to the academic dogs in recent years...
