Keep Your Healthy Smile Happy

Teeth are funny things. I found that out the hard way after looking for dental implants in Greenwood Village after slipping and falling off a ladder while trying to clean out my gutters. I fell in such a way that I broke my jaw and lost a couple of teeth. There are few horrors like spitting out a mouthful of blood and teeth and seeing them sitting there on the pavement. Scary. I think my wife took it harder than I did though since she fainted right off when she saw the mess on the ground. Poor woman.

When she finally came around she helped me look for a clinic online that could take me in right away.…

Reading Muscle And Fitness Book And Magazines

The Muscle and Fitness Magazine, the contents here has never failed to fascinate its readers. For this reason, many are purchasing it, wishing they might also get the same body shapes of the personalities featured inside of it.

But how credible are the contents of these magazines really? There are some people who are claiming that the magazines’ features are merely lies. That instead of guiding people to the appropriate fitness exercise they needed, they mislead them.

According to these people, the muscle and fitness magazines only lure the readers to aim for physical perfection.

Though there is nothing wrong about the said matter. The mistake starts to appear as they present limitless opportunities for body development, corrupting a bit of truth.

These people believe that there are several ways to develop the body. One needs not to become a total hard gainer. Constant workouts and proper diet are the only things to be followed.

There are some cases which they have stated wherein these magazines are only good for reading. The information only serves as for entertainment and forget about the results, they are usually not achieved.

They justified all the said claims by saying that these magazines are in the form of corporations, a business. Hence, these magazines share on one goal, be it muscle and fitness, bodybuilding, or health magazines. And that goal is to make an income.

So, for them to gain more profit, they need a buying public. And to have a buying public, they needed to satisfy their wants. Then, the fabrication of lies comes in. They feature new angles, and sometimes reaching the state of a bit of exaggeration. Sales will follow after.

Although these people do not claim that every article and information are deceptive. There are, of course, some true ones. But they are rarely informative.

What the magazines actually do is delimit the progress of a person when it comes to muscle development and the like. They make their readers dependent to them. In this way their customers will keep on buying their prints.

This is the business strategy. If the reader is really aware on the aspects of fitness exercise, they won’t become a patriot of this type of magazine.

Their features only over train a person in an ineffective way of gaining the necessary progress. For this reason, they concluded that constant purchasing of these sorts will only build a wall from needed improvement.

So, if you are one of these magazines patriots, think again if you will buy this kind of magazine the next time.

Now, if you are worrying where to get credible information, you still have lots of choices. Do not confine yourself from the magazines’ sheets alone. Explore.

However, do not fear all the guides regarding fitness that are presented in print. Do not forget that there are really credible ones. You just need to be wise enough to assess if they are not telling lies.

Los Angeles Dental Malpractice Attorney – When to Hire One

Why might someone need to hire a Los Angeles dental malpractice attorney?  Easy.  Because everyone understands that in a city like Los Angeles, the home of all things Hollywood – including the glitzy and glamorous world of beautiful actors and models – physical appearances matter.  Dentists don’t just clean teeth anymore, no.  The profession has expanded into a lucrative field of “cosmetic dentistry” and the varying types of procedures that are offered by dentists in Los Angeles have quadrupled.

So, too, have the instances of so called “Dental Malpractice” where one suffers significant loss or pain at the hands of a negligent dentist.  It’s a numbers game.  The more people in Los Angeles go to a dentist for major procedures, the more procedures are done.  The more procedures that are done by more dentists, the more the chances are that end up with someone who is not qualified and something goes wrong.  When something does go wrong, it’s time to call a Los Angeles personal injury attorney who specializes in dental malpractice; also known as a Los Angeles dental malpractice attorney.

Los Angeles resident Guy Terry went to a Los Angeles area dentist in 2006 to get three teeth extracted as a result of crowding of his teeth.  The dentist mistakenly extracted eight upper teeth, believing that the “3” was an “8”.  The restorative surgery to fix the damage was estimated to cost about $60,000.  Guy Terry found a dental malpractice attorney in Los Angeles, sued the dentist and won a large settlement that was later challenged on an unsuccessful appeal.

What is significant about dental malpractice is what it shares in common with legal malpractice and medical malpractice, which is this:  Dental malpractice concerns an action that a dentist does to cause harm to his dental patient – something they did or should not have done.  But dental malpractice also concerns a dentist’s failure to act, such as failing to diagnose a serious problem that eventually causes injury or death.

Sally Newton was an aspiring actress in Los Angeles.  Over two years she paid several visits to a Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, who bleached her yellowish teeth to a bright white, straightened her teeth gave her a movie star smile.  Why the dentist didn’t see the brown spots on her tongue, caused by years of chewing smokeless tobacco is a mystery.  By the time the oral cancer was diagnosed a year later, she had to have part of her tongue removed as well as parts of her gums and cheek.

Her Los Angeles dental malpractice attorney subpoenaed the cosmetic dentist’s records and proved the obvious; this dentist has been negligent for failing to diagnose Sally’s oral cancer.  The dentist’s malpractice insurance carrier was quick to offer a large and fair settlement before the case even went to trial.  Not that they weren’t prepared to fight it out.  Sally located a Los Angeles personal injury attorney that specialized in dental malpractice cases and she was successful.

If you live in …

A Closer Look at Medical Supplies Your Clinic Needs Most

Starting a new clinic is something that definitely takes a lot of determination and spirit, but when you really feel called to start your own practice there's really nothing stopping you but your own doubts and fears. One of the largest concerns that new clinicians have when they start opening their practices is that they are not quite sure where to get the quality medical supplies that they need, as well as how to get them at a price that's affordable. Contrary to popular belief, doctors really do have to worry about the cost of medical supplies, especially when there are so many patients to think about. A new community clinic definitely gets attention, as residents will have somewhere to bring their many aches, pains, and stresses to.

The first step in finding quality medical supplies at an affordable price is generally to find a great manufacturer and then see about bulk pricing from there. If you're not sure who to choose as your primary manufacturer, you really can not go wrong with Medline Products, a great supplier of fine durable medical equipment. Getting all of your equipment under the Medline products really really is not difficult at all.

Now that you've decided on getting the right manufacturer, you will need to fill your initial product order with the most essential items that your new clinic will need in order to really begin treating patients with the care that they deserve.

Sometimes, the supply list has some pretty run of the mill items, like tongue depressors and trash receptacles, but these items are strictly necessary. After all, you certainly can not use the same tongue depressors over and over again, since this could spread disease. Your patients are coming to your clinic because you use sterile medical equipment, and having more than enough to use definitely helps you keep things clean.

As mentioned before, bulk pricing is really the best way to go when you're trying to establish your clinic. The biggest reason why most new clinicians owners do not pursue as aggressive of a bulk pricing discount as they would like is because they feel that type of discount. However, that's not true at all – you can indeed get a deep discount as long as you really go over your purchase order and really make sure that you are indeed ordering everything in bulk. Your first purchase order should least you at least a month, even under heavy traffic.

It goes without saying that getting quality medical supplies can be an investment, but quality products from Medline will definitely help you get your patients the service that they unfortunately need. Ordering online is the best way to make sure that your medical supplies come to you quickly and that you have the best selection. Since every clinic is different, you will most likely need to customize your initial purchase order to make sure that you are covering everything required of your specialty or focus. So, if you really …

Acupuncture – What’s The Point?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical procedure, in which needles are inserted into the patient along well-defined meridian points. Stone needles have been discovered that date back over four thousand years. Later needles were made of bronze, silver, or gold, while the modern needle is usually made of stainless steel.

There are more than 360 known stimulation points. These points are, according to the theory, direct access to stimulate the meridians, which are thought of as channels where vital energy flows. The insertion of needles, or other stimulation of these points, is said to interrupt, or to stimulate, the energy flow. This will then cause either an analgesic effect to reduce or eliminate pain, or will stimulate stronger energy flow to heal various conditions.

A variation of this is called acupressure, where the practitioner uses physical pressure to stimulate the meridians. This pressure is applied with the hands, fingers and sometimes the elbow or even the knee. This treatment is very popular in Japan and has many enthusiasts in the United States as well, where it is commonly called shiatsu.

The use of acupuncture is very common in Chinese hospitals for the blocking of pain during surgical procedures. Most Chinese doctors will agree that this is very effective for about thirty percent of patients, while western doctors studying this phenomenon put the number closer to ten percent. Today, applying a small electric current into the needle often provides the stimulation, as opposed to twisting and shaking it by hand. It has been shown quite effective for brain surgery and is claimed to be superior to drug induced anesthesia as it does not disrupt the bodies’ normal functioning and thus leads to fewer side effects.

Doctors in China have recorded good success using acupuncture to treat heart disease. In one study of six hundred patients suffering with chest pain due to decreased flow of blood to the heart, almost all were able to significantly reduce their need for medication and a large majority was able to return to active work. Other conditions, such as high blood pressure, appendicitis, asthma and ulcers have also been shown to respond well to this treatment.

In 1998, the United States National Health Institute, (NIH), reviewed several studies of the effectiveness of acupuncture and concluded that it is quite helpful in the reduction of nausea caused by chemotherapy, as well as that caused by pregnancy or drug induced analgesia. NIH also found it an effective treatment for post-dental surgery pain.

How this works from a scientific standpoint is not yet clear, but is undergoing continued study. An experiment conducted by both western and eastern scientists, which produced analgesic effects in rabbits, indicates that this is not just due to the power of suggestion as some had postulated. Enkephalins and endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers and were discovered in 1978. Many doctors now feel that acupuncture may increase the production of these substances and therefore produce the pain killing effects.

This is an area of study …

The Medical Record

The medical record is one of, if not THE, most important documents within the delivery of healthcare services.It is what tracks the course of a patients care. It allows medical providers to review a patients medical history as well as plan a course of care for the future.

It is a communication tool that not only provides clinical data regarding a patient’s current and past medical history, but is also used in the reviewing and reimbursement of insurance claims, and to review utilization and quality of care.

The Contents of a Medical Record

* Face sheets, encounters for each visit

* Vital Signs

* Physician’s orders

* History and Physical forms

* List of Medical Problems

* Medication Lists

* Progress Notes

* Discharge Summary

* Authorization Forms

* Diagnostic Testing

* Laboratory Testing

* Operative Reports

* Pathology Reports

Documentation

Documentation is the most critical function regarding keeping accurate medical records, as it records all of the important details and facts regarding a patient’s care.

Documentation:

is legal documentation

includes a patient’s medical history

chronologically documents a patient’s care

allows physicians to plan and evaluate a patient’s care

provides continuity in care

allows all physicians involved in a patient’s care to communicate with each other

provides evidence of care provided in legal cases

assists in claims review and reimbursement

assists in meeting accreditation requirements

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations regarding documentation

Documentation MUST include:

evidence of a physical examination performed no more than seven days prior to admission or within 48

hours of admission

results from patient consultations and the findings from such evaluations

all orders, progress notes, medication records, radiology procedures and results, laboratory results,

and vital signs

the admitting diagnosis

a patient’s medical complications

any relevant risk factors

information that reflects the CPT/ICD-9 codes that were submitted to the patient’s insurance

consent forms signed by the patient

the discharge summary which summarizes the outcome of the admission, disposition of care, and

plans regarding follow up care

The S.O.A.P. Model

Subjective

Subjective information includes information given directly by the patient, such as how they are feeling, their opinions on their care, and why they made the appointment. It represents the patient’s point of view of their condition.

Objective

Objective information represents the physician’s point of view. It includes information that was observed and measured by the physician during an examination or test.

Assessment

The assessment identifies the main diagnosis that is specific to the visit, and includes the physician’s interpretation of that condition. When a patient has multiple diagnoses, a physician will dictate their assessment based on the patient’s complaint that particular day.

Plan

The “Plan” segment is when a physician makes a plan of action for a diagnosis, usually the condition specific to the visit of that day.

Challenges within Documentation

Every organization should ensure that each page within the medical record contains the patient’s name or identification number (the patients first and last name, first initial and last name, social security number, or …

Medicare and Medicaid, Who Pays For It?

Medicare is the national health plan that most people upon turning 65 years old, will qualify for it. It consists of parts A, B, C, and D. You will have worked 40 quarters in your lifetime in order to obtain it. Others below age 65 will qualify due to a Federal definition of disabled and then after 24 months after the declaration.

Medicaid is simply welfare for poor folks who fall below a certain income level. It is administered by the state in which you live and the minimum income requirements vary by such. It pays the balance of what Medicare does not.

Ideally, Medicare was set up in a trust fund, like Social Security and the anticipated result was that the money would stay there until you turned 65 and the interest as well as the principle would pay for your health care. Unfortunately, the current beneficiaries medical claims under the program are being paid for by the taxes being deducted by the current workforce. The money that was held in trust was simply spent for whatever the Congress decided to pay for other stuff. Why Medicare and Medicaid are going broke is this: You can not sustain the money being paid for claims when the workforce is declining and the beneficiary rolls are increasing. Think of it this way: Not enough people are working, having the tax deducted and the baby-boomer population is increasing at the rate of someone turning 65 every nine seconds, getting on Medicare and going to the hospital. One decreases, the other increases.

As far as Medicaid is concerned, you have even more of the 65 year old population being poorer due to the economy meltdown and when someone is poorer, they get sicker. So even more stress is put on the state's budgets to pay that portion of what Medicare did not cover. No wonder the state's are going broke as well as the Federal government program!

What the focus of the solution should be is that more jobs need to be created so more people are paying into the system to accommodate the increasing turning 65 population. Also, the emergency room should stop being used as a doctors office. People go there when they get sick, because they know that they will not be denied medical care and therefore the social workers at the hospital have the people enroll in Medicaid so the hospital can try and recover some of the costs from the state.

Solutions can not happen overnight, but the turning 65 baby boomers start in 2010 and continue a aggressive increase for the next 10 years. We have to be prepared for that, otherwise Medicare will definitely go broke. …

How To "Read" Your Fingernails To Prevent Heart Disease, Lung Cancer And Liver Damage

You’ve heard of reading palms and reading tarot cards… but reading fingernails? This may sound like a really weird gypsy sideshow at a carnival, but reading your fingernails is a scientifically proven way to detect certain illnesses that may be brewing in your body. And if you can develop your eye and spot the signs, you could save yourself a whole lot of trouble.

You see, a variety of diseases produce telltale changes in the nails. In the most extreme cases these can include heart disease, respiratory problems including lung cancer and liver damage. Doctors should check your nails as part of a physical examination but in reality few of them do so. So we’ve compiled a quick checklist to help you keep an eye out for abnormalities yourself…

Clubbing: This is where the nail and skin around the nail bed becomes rounded and bulbous. This can indicate respiratory problems such as lung cancer and emphysema, or heart disease.Try this self-test: place your index fingers together so that the surface of each nail is pressed against the surface of the other nail and the first joint of each finger are touching. When viewed from the side, normal nails leave a small diamond-shaped gap at the nail base. Clubbed nails leave little or no gap at all.

Spoon-shaped nails: A healthy nail has a convex shape to it, curving over the nail bed. If the nail dips in the other direction, concave, then it is possible that there is an iron deficiency or anaemia. Nails that are very pale can also indicate anaemia.

Oncholysis: In this condition, the nail separates from the underlying nail bed and can be evidence of an over or under active thyroid.

Red cuticles: Bright red coloration of the skin around the cuticles can be evidence of lupus or other connective tissue disease. Red nails, on the other hand, can be another sign of heart disease.

White spots: White spots on the nails often reveal zinc or vitamin A deficiency. Whiteness all over the nails, however, can be a sign of cirrhosis of the liver.

Dark splinters: The appearance of dark specks in the nails that look like splinters can be a sign of endocarditis – an infection of the heart valves.

Yellowing: Yellow nails that occur in conjunction with swelling of the face and legs can be evidence of chronic sinusitis or persistent lung disease.

Horizontal or vertical ridges

After injury or infection, nails can develop horizontal ridges. Vertical ridges are most often related to old age, possible due to the mal-absorption of vitamins A, B complex and C, calcium, magnesium, zinc and essential fatty acids.

What else can your nails tell you?

Modern palmists believe that as well as the length and course of lines on the hand, knuckles and nails can also be an additional source of information for hand reading. By studying the nails, palmists and chiromancers predict health and future events in a person’s life. …

Macrobiotic Diet – The Anti Aging Benefits

Learning the ins and outs of the macrobiotic diet might seem overwhelming when you first begin eating this way, but as with any other way of eating, it soon becomes natural for its followers.

Proponents say that people who eat a macrobiotic diet are less likely to get cancer and other diseases, will live longer lives and usually have more energy and vitality, even as they age.

The basis of the macrobiotic diet is that followers focus on natural foods that are produced locally. They eat largely vegetarian, but also eat fish and seafood and sometimes meat that been raised naturally or is organic.

An additional cornerstone of this diet is that when you eat this way, you eat with the seasons. So, for example, you do not eat corn in the winter. If you are eating corn, it means that either that corn was not produced locally (if it's winter in your neck of the woods, it is summer somewhere else but that means your food was shipped a distance to get to you) or you're eating frozen corn. Both are not recommended.

So getting a true idea of ​​a day in the life of a macrobiotic diet follower is tough. Much depends on where you live (what locally grown foods are available at any given time?), What season it is and your personal preferences.

Each meal should ideally contain the following:

A grain
A protein
A sea vegetable
Vegetables (both cooked for a time and those that are raw)
Pickles
Dessert (optional and only sometimes)

There should also be a mix of crunchy, soft, sticky, smooth and other textures and tastes in the meal. This provides the "yin and yang" contrast that macrobiotic eating is founded on.

Let's look at a sample menu. Let's assume it's winter where you live. Here's what you might eat for dinner one night:

For your grain – Sticky rice
For your protein – Fried fish with ginger for flavor
For your sea vegetable – Shio Kombu
For your vegetable – Sweet / sour beets
For your pickles – A Takuan pickle
For dessert? How about winter squash pudding?

Now, let's look at a summer menu. Most people who eat a macrobiotic diet find that summer is the easiest of seasons in which to plan menus. The produce is plentiful and it's easy to find locally raised protein sources and locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Here's a sample summer menu:

For your grain – Polenta made with fresh corn
For your protein – Red lentils that are made creamy and rich
For your sea vegetable – Arame made with sunflower seeds and diced chives
For your vegetable – Green salad with carrots
For your pickle – Chinese cabbage with lemons and red radishes
For your dessert – Lemon pudding

Do you see how the daily meals combine creamy, sweet, sour, crunchy and other textures and tastes? This is the hallmark of the macrobiotic diet, other than the emphasis on fresh, whole foods and …

Lifetime Fitness Equipment – How Do I Pick the Right Equipment That Will Last?

When you want to start your lifelong fitness journey, you want to have the right fitness equipment to accompany you. After all, it’s always better to have gym equipment around to give you the best intensity while doing cardio or resistance training while you maintain your ideal body weight.

Lifetime Equipment Defined

When somebody refers to lifetime equipment, it simply means that the machine will function within its serviceable life. Of course, this assumes that the proper use is exercised so that only normal wear and tear occurs.

For the most part, workout equipment will have a maximum life of 10 years. When it reaches that age, you might want to retire the equipment due to excessive wear and tear, technological obsolescence, unattractive looks and safety concerns.

Choosing Fitness Equipment to Last a Lifetime

With that said, choosing an equipment to last a lifetime can be relatively easy. The trick is in knowing what to look for in lifetime fitness equipment, which can include:

o Durability – Obviously, the more durable an equipment is, the longer it can be used. With the variety of alloy metals used in fitness equipment today, from lightweight aluminum to alloy steel, users are virtually swamped with durable choices. Always opt for the stronger material, which in most cases involve steel for the equipment body.

o Functionality – Workout equipment is only as good as it fits into your fitness goals by providing for functional features. If you cannot use a fitness equipment for various reasons (i.e., non-enjoyable, non-functional, etc), then you have no business even contemplating its purchase.

o Beauty – Well, of course, lifetime fitness equipment must have form! After all, fitness is also about physical form. Besides, you want to be motivated when exercising especially when intermittent pain makes itself known. And you simply can’t stay motivated by monstrous equipment! Of course, attractive design is an afterthought but a good afterthought, nonetheless.

Needless to say, choosing fitness equipment can be a very subjective affair. This is due to the differences in fitness goals, lifestyle preferences, body type and mental approach from one individual to the next.

Still, you might want to consult a fitness expert about the type of equipment that’s right for you. And don’t forget to consult with your doctor either to rule out pre-existing medical conditions that can be worsened by certain exercise activities.

Without a doubt, choosing the right fitness equipment depends on many personal factors. However, the criteria of durability, functionality and beauty must remain regardless of your personal preferences since these are largely objective factors.…
