• CPR Training Why You Need To Take It Seriously

    More and more jobs in this day and age require people to have a CPR license. Of course, anyone in the medical field, no matter how low-level the job, should have their CPR licenses in case of emergency. CPR licenses are also recommended for people working in very physical fields, like sports or even manufacturing. Many parents seeking babysitters rightfully want the person they’re paying for childcare to be capable of performing CPR, and thus lots of people take CPR classes before becoming babysitters or nannies. With that being said, a lot of people still don’t understand what CPR requires, and what the classes entail. They might be slack about getting recertified, thinking that they know all they need to know — or they might avoid taking CPR classes in the first place, simply because it seems l Continue Reading

  • Stay Migraine Free

    Scientific diet

    A migraine headache can be debilitating. According to the Migraine Research Foundation more than 90% of sufferers are unable to work or function normally during their migraine. For many individuals, this has become an accepted way of life and they deal with the pain as best they can using pain medications and preventative medications. Over half (54%) of migraineurs experience one or more attacks per month and 13% claim one or more attacks per week. Beyond the burden of a migraine attack itself, having migraine increases the risk for other physical and psychiatric conditions. Migraines can cause depression (it is 3x more common in people suffering from severe headaches)and this can negatively affect relationships with friends and family too.

  • The Importance of Activity As We Grow Older


    As our parents grow older we worry about if they are happy and healthy. We want them to be because they raised us and took care of us when we were small and weak. Its only fair that we take care of them as they grow and ironically become smaller and weaker. That said, the key towards making sure that our parents are happy and healthy is to make sure that they stay as active as possible.

    Being active is actually the key to being happy in our older age. For instance, studies have found that senior citizens in their 70s or later feel less lonely. The numbers showed that only 12% felt lonely when they were staying active. Conversely, 22% of elders who weren’t as active felt lonely.

    The reason for this, included in the need to remain physic Continue Reading

  • The Explosion of Proton Therapy

    Proton therapy for cancer

    The way that we treat cancer is going through a massive change, and hardly anyone?s heard about it. Proton therapy, a new, highly targeted form of radiation therapy, has become so a sought-after that there simply aren?t enough clinics to accommodate the demand.
    While proton therapy has been around as early as the mid-nineties in the US (and even further back in Europe), it has only recently begun to become widely known, if it is still not widely available.
    What separates proton therapy from the older, more conventional forms of radiation therapy is the ability to zero in on a small number of targeted malign cells while doing comparatively little damage to the surrounding cells. This makes it an ideal procedure for people with cancer in sensitive areas, and is a great method of eye, spinal c Continue Reading

For this reason, the government sets high regulations and standards on the way that pharmaceutical companies do business. The following aspects of the medical pharmaceuticals are important.

    Does the drug do more good than bad?

    You have finally been getting a good night’s sleep.

Although the statistics indicate that as many as 18 million Americans suffer from this condition, the reality is that the family of a sleep apnea sufferer is only worrying about one person Continue Reading

    Oxycodone addiction

And while there are astounding advancements in so many areas of society, there is a significant gap between the norms that society expects of typical, law-abiding citizens who function in their communities and those who need a bit of guidance.
