What Can I Do To Become A Healthier Person?

If you’ve realized that great health is one important key to optimal living, now is the time to make the behavioral changes necessary to generate wellness. Below you’ll find just three of many strategies you can implement to become a healthier person:

1. Schedule Your Annual Dental Appointment.

Oftentimes, people don’t think about dental health when they contemplate how to pursue wellness. But you should. Practicing good oral hygiene is the key to preventing gum disease. Also note that taking care of your teeth makes them more physically appealing, and this factor can boost your self-esteem. With all of this in mind, make sure that you’re scheduling an annual dental appointment to ensure that you can have your teeth cleaned by an industry expert.

2. Develop A Workout Routine.

In addition to scheduling your annual dental appointment, make sure that you develop a workout routine. This approach is important because it ensures that you will reap the benefits that result from regular physical activity. Some of those benefits include better sleep, enhanced immunity, and improved functioning of the circulatory system. There are numerous types of exercises you can integrate into a workout routine, and some of them include yoga, pilates, running, cycling, and swimming.

When you start thinking about how to put together your workout routine, remember that it should include exercises from all three of the following categories: cardio, stretching, and strength. An example of a workout routine that would fulfill this requirement would be a program that included cycling, yoga, and weight-lifting.

3. Enhance Your Diet.

Most Americans consume a substandard diet that lacks fiber and contains too much processed food. This type of substandard diet can make you susceptible to numerous unwanted conditions, some of which include obesity and depression. Luckily, eating a well-balanced diet which contains a wide range of fruits and vegetables can keep you on the road to optimized mental and physical well-being. One great way to get started is to have a huge salad for dinner every night for the next 30 days. After this point, you may find that you love salad and crave it all the time!

Get Healthy Now!

If you want to optimize your level of well-being so you can lead an extraordinary life, now is the time to implement the behavioral changes that will generate the desired outcome. Three strategies that can work wonders for you include scheduling your annual dentist appointment, working out regularly, and enhancing your diet!

Children Wearing Lab Coats

ID-10036453You’ve probably seen adults wearing lab coats while they are working in a hospital or doctor’s office. Some wear them while they are in a lab or while teaching a chemistry or biology course in school. Children can also wear lab coats, but they often have fun designs on them, such as cartoon characters or animals. They cover most of the body to protect the clothing and the skin. Some children might wear kids lab coats for Halloween so that they can look like a doctor or nurse while others might wear one to school to give an example of what a parent does for a job.

One of the main reasons to wear a lab coat is protection. While children might not be using chemicals or items that are dangerous, they might want to protect their clothing when they are painting or helping cook in the kitchen. The coat will keep liquids from staining the clothes and make them feel like they are professional instead of simply playing or doing a chore for parents.

There are times when children might need to stay in the hospital because they are sick or they have had surgery. A lab coat can help prevent the spread of germs that could make children sicker. Adding a mask can further decrease the spread of germs that are sometimes found in hospitals and doctor’s offices. The coat can also be used if the child is visiting a friend or family member in the hospital, protecting against taking home germs and bacteria if the coat is thrown away before going home as some are disposable.

Older children might take classes in school that deal with some liquids that could damage the skin or clothing. A lab coat, goggles, gloves and a mask can help prevent these liquids from splashing on the skin or the clothing. Most lab coats are now made with materials, such as cotton, that won’t melt if they are on fire. This will help protect the child if they are in that kind of situation as some clothing will melt to the skin.

Why Health is a Global Problem?

ID-100198593

Health in perspective of global scenario or “global health” is not a discipline in itself, but it is a collection of problems (health related problems as well as economic, technical, administrative and other non health related problems). A single review of global health can only find out and lay out the major problems that by the global community and chalk out the application of modern medicine in settings of great poverty or across national boundaries.

There are many international bodies, which are engaged in tackling of major global health issues like AIDS/HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, influenza, major communicable diseases etc. to name a few. Some of the major international bodies engaged in global health problem are WHO (World Health Organization), UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) and many more. These international organizations are trying to solve some basic issues in health care. But unfortunately health may be a subject of health care professionals and health care administrators; the issue of health is also an issue of social justice and social and community development. Without social justice and comprehensive social development (economic development, educational development, social development etc.) the global health problems can not be addressed successfully. Finally the issue of health, including global health is a political issue and without political will the issue of health and health related problems can not be solved or curved. Read more…

Global Health And Economy

ID-100216632Economy and health are intertwined and entangled to each other. As the phrase goes “health is wealth”, the economy of and individual as well as that of a nation and of the whole world itself is to a large extent dependent on health. And many a times political and economic concerns have often guided global health interventions and investment on health generally depends on political will. For example the control of yellow fever, was directly related to completion of Panama Canal, because of economic burden of yellow fever, the disease was tried to control (if the Panama Canal was not constructed yellow fever control might have taken much longer time if ever tried to control).

Some economists and demographers argue that economic development is the key to improving the health status of a nation or a region, but many others argue that that ill health is the main barrier to economic development in poor countries. May be the view which combines both these arguments is the correct view and improvement of health status as well as economic development are equally important. But investment in health care, especially by controlling communicable diseases in poor countries can lead to increased productivity and consequently economic development. But many countries and economists are unable to find the necessary resources to start the predicted “virtuous cycle”. Read more…

3 Healthcare Tools To Manage Patient Medications

ID-10022007Oral medications for the treatment chronic conditions have seen unprecedented growth in recent times. Patients with chronic/life threatening conditions are dosing on multiple medicines each day to reduce symptoms–but without tracking medication times or following a particular routine. This is especially difficult for the patients who see multiple doctors.

Dealing with multiple medications can indeed be a confusing process, for patients as well as medical professionals. Following a blatant pattern can also lead to increased health risks for the patient. Medical professionals therefore need to adopt a proactive approach to assist patients in managing their medications.

The confusion can also lead to harmful medicine interactions. It has been estimated by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists that above 34% senior citizens have received a prescription from more than a single physician, and 72% of them are using medicines that were received as prescriptions 6 months ago.

Moreover, several patients have jumped on the ‘pharmacy shopping’ bandwagon as they are considering it to be a frugal approach towards healthcare. The ALARIS Center for Medication Safety and Clinical Improvement reveals that errors in medication administration have resulted in 7,000 deaths a year. The statistics make the problem of medication management apparent.

Thankfully, due to the recent advancements in the domain of health care, medical professionals can utilize certain tools to manage patient medications. Read more…

Positive Thinking and Health

ID-10097419Healthy mind is essential for healthy life and in modern scientific perspective there can be no good health state without good (peace) thinking. Positive thinking affects health positively and negative thinking can have effect health negatively and adversely. Health as defined by WHO (World Health Organization) is a state of physical and mental well-being and not merely absence of disease. The definition of health by WHO explain, why positive thinking mind is essential for a good healthy life. Many experts are advocating adding the term “spiritual well being” in the WHO definition of health, as it is seen that if you are spiritually healthy, you are healthier physically, but many experts are there who do not agree to this addition.

Let me explain about positive thinking in my own ways. One day you find food prepared at your home is not palatable or not to your linking (you dislike that particular food prepared). If you have positive thinking mind you will “diet” that day and not be unhappy that you can loose few calories without planning it, but if you have a negative thinking you will get annoyed and make an issue of it and disturb peace of family and home. Now you should think if peace of family members is absent can you or your family members be healthy? Think the other way; the person who lost some calories, he/she will be happy to lose a few calories (skipping one meal does not a lean person leaner or thinner) and healthy as a result. Read more…
