As we learn more and more about the world around us, we become aware of new diseases as well. These discoveries can be seen as a good thing, as the discovery of its existence marks the point that working toward a cure can begin.

    If you are looking for a way to be more energized and more productive in the new year, you might start by making sure that you get a good night’s rest. For the 18 million Americans who suffer from sleep apnea, getting that good night’s rest might rely on using a CPAP machine. Unfortunately, a sufferer of obstructive sleep apnea may experience as many as 60 apneas in a single hour. This interrupted rest can lead to not only being less productive in work and in everyday tasks, it can also lead to an increase in even greater health risks. In fact, studies indicate that untreated sleep apnea sufferers are three times as likely to have heart disease and face a risk of stroke that is four times as likely as those who are not afflicted.

  • Holiday Surgeries Can Put a Glitch in Your Christmas Schedule

    This will probably not be your oldest daughter’s favorite winter break. Just three days after she comes home from college she is scheduled for a shoulder surgery that should help her not only relieve the pain from a torn ligament, but make it possible to compete with her college gymnastics team again by her senior year. This surgery means, however, that instead of returning to campus that day after Christmas and starting workouts with the rest of her teammates, your daughter will spend the entire winter break at home. She is still a ways off from getting to talk physical therapy for orthopaedics, but she will be staying home to attend follow up visits with the surgeon. And though she will Continue Reading

  • Urgent Care and Emergency Care The Differences

    In the United States, the average American knows very little about how the medical industry works. Surely there are people who are not doctors that understand when they are supposed to take prescribed medicine and what the medicine does to them but that does not mean they have any degree of awareness to how the actual medical industry works. There are plenty of examples to look to for evidence of this concept.

    For instance, the average person has probably never heard of the National Health Interview Survey, which is also referred to as the NHIS. The NHIS revealed in 2014 that just about 8.4% children suffered from hay fever, 5% had to deal with food-related allergies, 10% suffered from respiratory allergies, and that 11% of all children had to deal with skin based allergies. Another great exampl Continue Reading

  • You Can Prevent Skin Cancer with These 6 Tips

    Women?s health services

    Many people live with the fear of developing cancer. The bad news is that nearly 40% of us will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during our lives. The good news is that a lot of cancers can be prevented. Skin cancer is one such form of cancer. It is one of the most common yet preventable cancers around the world.

    Tips to Cut Your Risk of Developing Skin Cancer:

    1. Remember, all sun tans and burns are damage to your skin. There is no such thing as a “safe” tan. That means going to the salon to lay in a tanning bed is going to do as much damage to your skin as a day at the beach. While we may have it in our heads that heathy equals tan, it is not true. If you simply must get that “healthy glow,” the best way to do that is to get a spray or other artificial tan. Continue Reading
