Today's hottest diets is mainly divided into two groups: low-carb diets and low-fat diets.  And over the years, the low-carb approach has gained popularity over the low-fat approach.

But the question is, is a low-carb diet, without consideration of the amount of animal fat intake, the best approach to achieving healthy weight loss goals?  We must remember that a low-carb diet isn't always good for everyone.  Healthy eating is all about consuming sensible amounts of complex carbs, proteins,  fiber.

Practice What You Preach in the Sanctuary of Health Care

2013-01-09T16:02:25.986+08:00


If you haven’t encountered it already, the day will come when you will be advising patients to get tested for STDs. But are you safe? There are many STDs that don’t have any noticeable symptoms, or they may have minor symptoms that are often confused as being brought on my something else like a urinary tract infection. Get tested for STDs in California and have some peace of mind so you may go about your day and help other’s with their health care needs.






Total Confidentiality

Although you study and work in the health profession and you have the resources at hand to get tested, most health care workers tend to have intimate testing conducted from an outside source, as they don’t want to give the impression to lab technicians who know them, that they may or may not be burdened with such an affliction. Ordering a test online and going to a lab located outside the sphere of your workplace, will offer total and complete confidentiality. By avoiding labs run by technicians, nurses and doctors who know you, or who may become your future colleagues, you are practicing total discretion.



The Process

The process is easy. The order can be conducted online, or over the phone with a nurse. You can get a general test, or test for specific things like Herpes, Chlamydia, or HIV. After your order has been completed you can go to one of many labs located across California. Selecting one outside your area of networking might be best if you are really concerned about having total privacy.

When is the Right Time to Get Tested?

Depending on your age and how sexually active you are, this answer varies. According to the Mayo Clinic, you should get screened annually if you are a sexually active woman under the age of 25, or if you are a woman over the age of 25 and are having sex with a new partner or multiple partners. If you are a man who has sex with other men, you will also want to get tested annually. The article stresses that screening is important, because if you don’t have signs or symptoms, you can be unaware of having certain infections such as Gonorrhea or Chlamydia. The tests are done in multiple ways. You can be screened by providing a urine sample or through a swab inside the penis if you are a man, or from swabbing the cervix if you are a woman.

Some Final Thoughts

Don’t think you are immune to the horrors of STDs just because you train or work in the health care industry and you use protection. Don’t hesitate in getting screened if you meet the criteria for people who need to get annual tests. Having an untreated STD plaguing your body is too important of a thing to risk ignoring. In fact, if you have a healthy active sex life that warrants an annual STD screening, why not treat yourself to a nice annual frozen yoghurt after you leave the lab. Make it a special day.

Considering a Career in Nursing

2012-12-01T11:26:40.406+08:00

If you’re considering a career in nursing, you’re considering a rewarding, well-paying career that you’ll enjoy every single day. While a career in nursing isn’t for everyone, the select few who decide on this career end up becoming very passionate about their jobs. In addition to the high pay and rewarding aspects of a nursing career, the United States is currently facing a nursing shortage, meaning the demand for nurses is at an all time high. Choose a career in nursing, and you’ll be almost guaranteed to have employment once you finish school. But before you buy new dorm bedding and run off to college just yet, you need to decide what kind of career in nursing it is that you want. Check out this list of different careers in nursing and see if there’s one that is appealing to you.Licensed Practical NurseA licensed practical nurse (LPN) is essentially the basic entry into the field of nursing. As an LPN, you’ll be performing basic medical procedures while under the supervision of a superior nurse or doctor. These procedures include administering medications to patients, dressing wounds, taking different measurements of patients, maintaining records, and collecting samples. To become a certified LPN, you usually need to attend school for up to two years and study physiology, pharmacology, anatomy, and practical patient care. The median salary for an LPN is just over $40,000 a year, so it is definitely a lucrative career choice. Registered Nurse Becoming a registered nurse (RN) typically requires more schooling than it takes to becoming a licensed practical nurse as the responsibilities are much greater. A registered nurse usually supervises the work of a LPN. RNs also are responsible for the overall care of patients, which is a very big responsibility. There are many different schooling paths that lead to becoming a certified RN, the most common being obtaining a 4-year bachelors degree in nursing. There are also hospital programs that lead to becoming a certified RN. Once you have your RN certification, you can go into a career working for attorneys, insurance agencies, hospitals, or even become your own boss by being a medical consultant. The median salary for an RN is just below $65,000 a year. Nursing Assistant Becoming a nursing assistant is a good career choice if you want to get into the field of nursing but lack the time and resources to go back to school to obtain a degree or certificate. Nursing assistants help with the entire range of nurse duties, including working directly with patients and doctors. Usually, nursing assistants will help the patients eat their meals, complete proper hygienic techniques, and monitor different things like blood pressure. Patient Care Technician As a patient care technician, you’ll be working to ensure that therapeutic programs remain running as they should. You’ll likely spend a lot of time assisting doctors with bedside care of patients, performing CPR as needed, along with preparing patients for surgeries. There are plenty of opportunities working with hospice organizations, and especially rehabilitation centers if you decide you want a career as a patient care technician. [...]



Get Better at Better Hospitals

2012-10-26T11:08:56.446+08:00

At some point in your life, you may have to visit or stay in a hospital room. This may never be something you're looking forward to, but with recent and upcoming developments, things are getting better. A hospital is a vast space to manage, and over the years some institutes have let certain things fall by the wayside. Not anymore. In an effort to keep patients safe, healthy and comfortable, many hospitals are revamping and reevaluating their infrastructure. The hospital room is a place of health and healing, and to maintain this status, certain things have to be kept up to par at all times. From the simple things, like providing a patient with a microfiber Twin XL comforter, to complicated things like a caregiver screen, that shows a digital documentation of the patient's situation; hospitals are bucking up.  For those who work in the hospital industry, the changes being made offer them the opportunity to be better care providers. This isn't exclusive to doctors, as some may think. The technologies and supplies coming to market now will help facilitate the jobs of nurses, orderlies, students and administrators, equally. The point is that we want patients to get better sooner, and to be comfortable when they have to stay in the hospital. The only way this can happen is if the facilities are modern, and focused on making the jobs of the staff go smoothly. Here are a couple of the most recent developments in hospital technology that are being utilized in institutions around the country and world, today: Technology for easier medicine administration. Especially when children and the elderly are involved, administering medication is often a long and error-prone process. Dependant on if the medicine is ordered in milligrams, if it has to be diluted, and if the patient's weight and age have to be taken into account, things can get mixed up when this process is done manually. Through technology like the Artemis System, the software can sync with the barcode of any medication and deliver the most accurate conversion for medicinal administration. Easier fracture mending procedures. Children are notorious for being very active, even when in pain. Specific to setting and mending fractures, it can sometimes be impossible to get them settled. Other times, they may endure additional pain during the process, rendering them non-receptive. Some hospitals won't do this procedure at all, and prefer to refer the patient to another hospital. With the use of Ketamine, which has been proven safe for child use, things are changing. In the simple process, Ketamine is administered and the child becomes mildly sedated but feels no pain. The cast is then set and the patient is allowed to leave. Much, much easier than it was before! These are just two of the many changes being implemented in hospitals around the country today. Every year, more research is being conducted to help create products, services and technology to help patients feel better, faster.  To find out more about these developments, you can always peruse the publications on the New England Journal of Medicine website.[...]



Tips for New Nurses

2012-09-06T02:07:51.740+08:00

One of the most exciting fields that is constantly in need of new members is the field of nursing. Just as important as doctors are to the field of medicine, nurses are part of the lifeblood of the field. It is difficult to summarize in totality the full extent of notable contributions that nurses make to the medical field, but without them, the entire health care delivery system in both private and public medical facilities would not go smoothly.Nurses often act as liaisons between doctors and patients and while they must possess the proper formal technical training they must also have a love for the provision of care at an emotional level. For new nurses, there is a certain amount enthusiasm and anticipation that comes with finally turning your credentials into experience. Because there will be lives literally in your hands you have to make sure that you're ready to take your nursing career to the highest level while still being in touch with the human needs of the most debilitated of your patients. Here a few tips that new nurses on the block can use to make their first foray into the field one that is fulfilling and memorable: Keep up on the latest on medicines, treatments and supplements.Every year new drugs and supplements hit the market and it is very important that you as a nurse are aware of the things people are trying on their own or being subscribed. As far as treatments are concerned, these evolve constantly and you should be abreast of what advances are being made so that you can provide the best care to patients. A good place to start is by going to sites like Medix Select to see what supplements are popular and being used by the general population. When you know what people are taking, you can assist in creating helpful profiles that can speed up things like nursing assessment and patient teachings. Take care of yourself with that first paycheck. While you may find it easy to get into responsible adult mode with your first nursing job paycheck it is important that you treat yourself to something you really want.  Nursing is often a demanding job and long, arduous and consecutive hours can leave you with little time for yourself that can lead to discontent and burnout.  Treat yourself to a weekend spa suite of treatments, buy yourself a piece of jewelry to commemorate your first check or even take yourself out to a fancy dinner. You worked hard for that money and once you stick to the nursing field, you will work even harder in the years to come.  Trust your instincts when they are trying to get through to you. As a nurse, you are trained to think critically and trust your judgment. This is an independent career field and there will be many times where you will have to make difficult decisions based solely on your knowledge.  If something isn't sitting right, do not proceed to ignore it. Do some research and investigation! Conscientiousness and analytical skills can help you save lives.  Image: TIPS FOR NEW NURSES PHOTO  Source: superstock.com [...]

Getting Personal with Injuries

2012-08-22T03:51:56.052+08:00

A personal injury can manifest itself in several different ways and produce several different outcomes. One of the most harrowing of all of them of course is when the injury is fatal and the victimized party dies. Even with the best medical care or the most timely response some personal injuries can result in death and so it is very important to understand what comprises a personal injury so that you know what to do after not only to recoup your health but also to recoup your finances.Being injured in this country, with our without insurance, is a very scary thing.  If you're a single person with no next of kin or anyone to lend advice or support, it can be a very disorienting experience to undergo. If you're a part of a family or you have dependents, it is equally scary because your concern is often if you'll be able to contribute meaningfully to your life and their lives after.There are several types of personal injury that you should be aware of.  Knowledge of them will help you prevent them from happening and act accordingly should they occur. When you are injured, especially at work, what happens before, during and after the injury are all very important not just to your recovery but also to the process of responsibility thereafter. There are many employers who take advantage of the fact that their workforce may either be ignorant of their options or may feel threatened or intimidated that their job security may waver, should they be injured at work. Some injuries also occur outside the workplace and can involve private citizens and these too require a delicate hand to ensure that the legal processes which are incumbent occur smoothly and accurately.Getting a good personal injury lawyer or law firm like www.davidsinderbrand.com is also an important facet of the success of one's legal mitigation. Injuries at work may include work-related illnesses for example, diseases that are caused by working with harmful substances such as asbestos. There are also illnesses that are psychological in manifestation which can be caused by work-related or work-incited stress.A private citizen's issues may include injuries caused in traffic accidents which can be truly devastating. The use of faulty or substandard goods or services may cause personal injury as well as injuries caused by, for example, tripping over a paving stone. So the general idea is that there are personal injuries which can affect your body and those that affect your mind.No matter what an injury affects, there are certain precautions that must be taken to ensure that you do not do further damage by not doing certain key things on your end. Record and document everything as soon as possible. You may not be able to do it yourself, but have someone record everything that was done by you and by everyone involved in the accident so that when the time comes to determine responsibility and compensation, you'll know exactly what to do.Image: GETTING PERSONAL WITH INJURIES PHOTO Source: mensickness.com [...]



The Alcohol Among Us

2012-08-22T03:41:05.090+08:00

When we think of the term alcohol treatment, many of us have images of pop stars binge drinking at night clubs or beloved cartoon characters just having one drink too many. For millions of Americans however, alcohol abuse is nothing to laugh about or to gaze at from afar because it impacts them in a very tangible way. Some of them have family members that are afflicted with alcoholism and others suffer with the disease personally - either way, alcohol is close to home. For those who live outside the grid of alcoholism, it is a hard concept to understand. The average human has a certain inherent sense of reason and willpower that operate in tandem with logic. They know that too much of anything isn't good and so moderation is key, but the mind of an alcoholic is impervious to this seemingly obvious reasoning. Alcoholics function on a different plane of existence whereby the person you think you know, basically doesn't exist any longer. When someone becomes addicted to alcohol, the body and mind go into a very dependant, very aggressive and a very myopic state where the only focus is the sourcing and consumption of the libation. Alcoholism stems from different places and some within the medical community even tout it as hereditary. Some people literally fall into the alcoholic state because drinking is a part of their job or domestic lifestyle - years of habit, be it social or cultural places an emphasis on alcohol as something of a social lubricant or a means by which things are celebrated. Even in this honest or seemingly mundane sphere, any dependency is not good. Further evaluation of alcoholism as a disease and the roots that spawn it have found that just like any other drug or psychological buttress, alcohol has effects on the mind and body that people who are struggling to deal with emotional issues find very alluring. Alcoholics find comfort in the drink because it offers them an escape from sometimes very unfavorable realities. These explanations that we offer you are in no way meant to excuse the behaviors of the alcoholics that you know or encounter, but to help give you a better understanding of how the alcoholic mind works. Trying to reason with someone who is so deeply addicted to any substance is a moot exercise, unless you are professionally trained to wane them off both the physical and the emotional dependency. The alcoholic's body is another issue that should be carefully investigated and understood. For someone who drinks habitually, the body actually becomes dependent on the alcohol to carry out regular, day to day activities. When the alcohol is removed or denied to the system, the results can be near fatal. This is one of the saddest addictions to behold because the person is usually not lucid enough to realize just how much harm they are doing to themselves or to others. Working closely with professional at rehabilitation centers may be your best; if not your only bet to making things take a turn for the better. Image: THE ALCOHOL AMONG US PHOTOSource: guardian.co.uk [...]



Teen Crisis - The Drinking Epidemic

2012-08-01T21:18:21.802+08:00

As adults, we are expected to maintain the highest standards of behavior not only for ourselves but for the children in and around our lives. In a social humanity sphere, how we behave can impact and influence the behavior of others and the children in our midst. When it comes to substance abuse, specifically alcohol and alcoholism, we have really given the kids the shortest straw from which to draw. We see it every day portrayed in fictional media and in documented accurate reports the growing number of youngsters involved in drinking - and not just involved but also full alcoholics as well. Would you believe that there are children who begin drinking as young as the age of twelve, rendering them seasoned alcoholics by the age of thirteen? This startling and upsetting statistic for teenage drinking is the driving force behind many teenage rehabilitation programs. It is sad that this is the state in which we are currently. There are many reasons and causes for teenage alcoholism and most if not all of them are preventable at both a domestic and external level. Another really terrible art about teenage alcoholism is that many of them do not survive beyond their teenage years. The teenage body is still young and very fragile and with the amount of alcohol that is being consumed, death rates for teens with alcoholism are very high. There are many things that we can do as parents and guardians when it comes to alcoholism but we have to be committed to a preventative movement where teenage alcoholism is concerned. While Valleyhope alcohol treatment centers are equipped to provide the necessary treatment of the disease, wouldn’t it be better if the disease didn't occur at all? While there are many documented and undocumented reasons for teenage alcoholism, the following is one of the most prominent. To understand the why behind teenage alcoholism is to understand the how of preventing it all together. Let's have a look:ExperimentingPeer pressure as well as the combined glorification of alcohol consumption are key perpetrators in teens experimenting with drinking alcohol. There will always be a natural curiosity where adult behavior is concerned but this experimentation has some truly dire repercussions. We treat with drinking socially as a rite of passage and a means by which we can lubricate the wheels of social interaction. To a young person just learning about themselves, this sort of heavy suggestion is dangerous. What it is construed as often is that "I cannot function without the help of alcohol." All humans are susceptible to influence and innuendo, but for kids and teenagers, it is even more prominent a factor. They do not necessarily seek to use alcohol as a coping mechanism but sometimes it is just curiosity and a forced sense of "I'm supposed to like this because everyone around me does." The tragedy then lies that the child or teenager doesn't even realize that he or she has become addicted just through their experimentation phase and by then it is too late - but not too late to repair through treatment.Image:  TEEN CRISIS - THE DRINKING EPIDEMIC PHOTOSource: hometestingblog.com [...]



Get Your Headache to Hit the Road

2012-08-16T14:08:18.580+08:00

Headaches are scary things. Considering your head is the home of your brain, it is not such a stretch to believe that people often worry when they get headaches. Well, they worry after the agonizing pain is gone. Ranking high on the list of most excruciating body pains – up there with a sore throat and kidney stones – headaches are not fun stuff at all. They can be downright debilitating, rendering the individual, immobile, unable to see and unable to function in any normal capacity. Moderate headaches are very common and their big brother, the migraine is not something you ever want to experience if you never have before.  There are many causes for headaches, some are serious and others are mild and easily treatable. Some of the most common factors that contribute to the onset of a headache are – stress, long, uninterrupted work hours, allergens (food and otherwise), dehydration, oxygen deprivation and sleep deprivation just to name a few. Some headaches can be cured with small dosages of painkillers or natural supplements that can be found on websites like PureFormulas.com. Some don’t even require the help of painkillers and just require a change of breathing pattern and maybe a tall glass of water to rehydrate your body. Whatever the reason for your headache, if it persists beyond normal, natural remedies, please have a visit with your doctor as the headache may be an indication of something more serious.Have a look at some of our easy headache squashing tips and tricks to give you some ease: Stretch it out: Bad posture causes tension headaches and general body aches, for that matter. If you sit at your work desk for hours on end or even if you have a more physical job, one that is singularly repetitive, you’re probably creating a lot of tension in your body. This may stay fixed in your muscles and limbs or, more commonly, it will radiate towards your noggin. A good, hearty stretch will release tense areas and increase blood flow and circulation – this will help alleviate the pain of a tension headache.   Ice it down: When you have a headache that’s particularly nasty, the pain may feel like it’s glowing out of your head, all over your face and down the back of your neck. This description is pretty accurate because with pain often comes heat which may make things even more uncomfortable. Grab a good old fashioned ice pack not just to bring your temperature down, but to soothe throbbing muscles and tissue. A few minutes with a cold compress will work wonders on clearing up the painful symptoms of a mild to moderate headache. Place it on the back of your neck or on your forehead, take deep breaths and let the chill work its magic! Shut your eyes: If possible, when you feel a headache coming on or you’re already in the throes, get some shut eye or at least, confine yourself to a cool, dark, light-free room. Headaches are pain that can radiate exclusively at the top and back of your head, but sometimes, especially with tension headaches, they happen behind the eyes. When you have a headache, you’ll probably experience some light sensitivity and it will be difficult to do work or to do simple things like read or watch tv.  Image: GET YOUR HEADACHE TO HIT THE ROAD PHOTO Source: http://pinoytutorial.com/lifebytes/top-ten-natural-tips-for-headache-relief/ [...]
