Home Health Care La Jolla Firstat Nursing Services Supports Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month; How Home Health Care Can Help Families Cope
La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
A debilitating condition requiring physical assistance, frequent medication and special care, Juvenile Arthritis affects an entire family, said Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services in San Diego, CA. Families supporting a loved one affected by the disease face unique challenges and often find it difficult to provide physical as well as emotional support without help Hiring a professional in home care provider can help by providing assistance, lending support and creating peace of mind for children and family members.
Physical Assistance for many children suffering with Juvenile Arthritis, regular, everyday activities can be painful and difficult. Having a trained professional available to assist with activities of daily living makes the seemingly impossible less challenging. From help dressing to personal hygiene, even eating, a trained and personable in home care provider lends a hand safely, efficiently and with the least amount of inconvenience and stress for all involved. Families choose the most appropriate times to have assistance- in the early morning before leaving the house for the day or in the evening when preparing for bed. With flexibility and dependability, the right in home nursing service can fit any schedule.
Support Framework Caring for a child with special needs takes an emotional toll on every member of a family. While most homes are filled with love, its a tremendous challenge to stay positive, energetic and carry out responsibilities day after day without a support system. The right in home care professional provides more than physical assistance, but offers a necessary support framework, bringing loved ones the emotional assistance they need to cope with a stressful situation in a healthy way. Many families find that employing the services of an in home care provider is like having a breath of fresh air- positive, encouraging and friendly.
Peace of Mind Proper management of Juvenile Arthritis requires a unique commitment to understanding and administering several different types of medication. Many families find having a professional in home care provider with experience using these medications creates peace of mind. A trained provider efficiently and effectively administers prescriptions and other treatment safely and on time. Knowing that a loved one is getting the treatment they need when they need it is reassuring.
Families dealing with Juvenile Arthritis face challenges that lie beyond keeping a loved one comfortable and pain free. Having a trained and professional in home care provider visit the home makes difficult activities easier, provides an important support system for family members and gives loved ones the peace of mind they deserve, continued Goodrich.

If ever a disease deserved a new name, peripheral artery disease is it. “Peripheral” smacks of something on the sidelines. Nothing could be further from the truth. Peripheral artery disease affects at least 12 million Americans, more than heart disease and stroke combined. It kills some, maims others, and makes life disagreeable or unbearable for countless more. The condition is often overlooked or misdiagnosed in women, according to the April 2012 Harvard Women’s Health Watch.
Although peripheral artery disease usually affects the legs, it can also affect the arms. Symptoms include:
pain, cramping, or heaviness with exercise or movement that subsides with rest
painful, cold, numb, or tingling legs or hands
sores on the legs, feet, arms, or hands that don’t heal.
Any of these symptoms warrant a closer look. Peripheral artery disease is generally diagnosed with a test called the ankle-brachial index, which compares blood pressure in the arm with blood pressure at the ankle.
Lifestyle changes are often the first step in fighting peripheral artery disease. Exercise can help open arteries and improve blood flow. Managing cholesterol and blood pressure, and not smoking, are also important. Some people with peripheral artery disease need to have bypass surgery or artery-opening angioplasty, which may include placing a stent to improve blood flow to the affected arm or leg.
Women tend to develop symptoms of peripheral artery disease in their 60s and 70sa decade later than men. By then, women may have other conditions like arthritis or nerve damage that can mask the symptoms and delay diagnosis until the disease is fairly far advanced. If you have any of the symptoms listed above, ask your doctor if you should have a workup for peripheral artery disease. Early action can make you feel better, and keep your arms and legs functioning.

New Acidosis Reducing Supplement Added to Liberty Health Network’s Online Product Offerings As pH Plus Supplement Debuts On Amazon.Com
Tampa Bay, FL USA (PRWEB) June 09, 2012
Liberty Health Network, LLC announces the release of pH Plus Nutritional Supplement on Amazon.Com
ACIDOSIS is a scary-sounding word. Perhaps that’s because “Acidosis” (too much acid waste in our body), is considered by many researchers to be the basic foundation of all disease. It’s a real silent killer. The simple process of alkalizing the body and the important role a properly alkalized body plays in restoring and maintaining overall health, is paramount in any serious pursuit of wellness. That’s because glands and organs function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in the system.
Because of today’s environmental pollution, chemical-based farming practices, the air breathed, the water drank, over-processed, enzyme-dead food, medicinal drugs, stress, vaccinations, etc., it is estimated that eighty to ninety percent of what goes into the human body is acid-forming, dramatically impacting the body’s pH. The result of this is decay and putrefaction in the colon, which in turn stimulates the formation of dangerous acids that affect cells, organs, glands and body functions. As the aging process continues, the entire metabolic process becomes progressively more acid, organ tissues begin to show the signs of stress and damage, and dis-ease becomes the norm. Researchers believe every sick person is over-acidic. The overwhelming majority of not yet ill are also over-acidic (perhaps to a lesser degree), and will become sick, in time, unless decisive and persistent action is taken to counteract this acid condition.
More than just an Antacid, pH Plus Alkaline Capsules contain :
Calcium is needed by the body for healthy bones, muscles, nervous system, and heart. Calcium carbonate also is used as an antacid to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion, and stomach upset.
Potassium is a mineral that is found naturally in foods and is necessary for many normal functions of your body, especially the beating of your heart. Potassium bicarbonate is used to prevent or to treat a potassium deficiency (hypokalemia).
Sodium bicarbonate is an antacid that neutralizes stomach acid.
It is used to relieve heartburn and indigestion. Sodium bicarbonate is also used to make the blood and urine less acidic.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Is a Native American medicinal plant. Echinacea contains active substances that enhance the activity of the immune system, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and have hormonal, antiviral, and antioxidant effects.
Is a plant that is nutrient rich and contain the following, Ascorbic-acid, Beta-carotene, Calcium, Coumarins, Genistein, Gamma-linolenic-acid, Flavonoids, Hentriacontanol, Magnesium, Niacin, Oleic-acid, Potassium, Riboflavin, Rutin, Selenium, Triterpenoid saponins, Thiamin, and Zinc.
Chamomile is a flowering plant. It has a long history of use in Europe for digestive ailments. The active constituents of chamomile have anti-inflammatory properties, and ease spasm and discomfort in the digestive tract. It is also very relaxing!
Dandelion is a natural diuretic that increases urine production by promoting the excretion of salts and water from the kidney. Dandelion may be used for a wide range of conditions requiring mild diuretic treatment, such as poor digestion, liver disorders, and high blood pressure. One advantage of dandelion is that dandelion is a source of potassium, a nutrient often lost through the use of other natural and synthetic diuretics. Studies have also reported that dandelion root may help improve liver and gallbladder function.
Gentian is an herbal medicine used to treat digestive problems, such as an upset stomach, heartburn, flatulence, and colic. It is also used to improve appetite and is a great anti inflammatory
Burdock root has often been used to purify the blood by removing toxins that can build up in blood. Traditionally, burdock has been used as a remedy for measles, arthritis, tonsillitis, viruses like colds, throat pain, and as a diuretic. In modern times, burdock is also used in oncology and to treat many other serious health problems.
Protease is the digestive enzyme needed to digest protein. The proteins are broken down to their basic building blocks – amino acids. It is also valuable in assisting the body to fight infections from viruses, fungi, parasites and bacteria.
If pH is really important to good health, then pH Plus is essential to establishing and maintaining pH balance in the body. And effective immediately, this cutting-edge product is now available on Amazon.Com. The product is also a perfect complement to O2 Plus Stabilized Oxygen Drops, available from Liberty Health Network on Amazon.Com.

A Health And Fitness Company Out Of New York Has Just Released A Brand New Video On Different Home Remedies For Acne
Thornwood, NY (PRWEB) June 25, 2012
Home remedies for acne is a growing and popular trend among people who are looking to cure this annoying issue once and for all and to hopefully prevent any future outbreaks as well. The reason for this is the vast amount of prescriptions being filled by doctors throughout the U.S. and the world for people who visit them in the hopes of getting rid of their acne. Sadly, a lot of these medications can cause a host of problems for these people and in reality, is only treating the symptom and not the root cause of the issue.
For example, according to the DiCarmine, a lot of doctors will issue the prescription Accutane if the patient is looking for ways on how to prevent acne. But, there are numerous potential side effects with this popular drug, for example severe aches and pains in the lower back and large joints, severe allergy reactions that include moderate rashes and difficulty to breath, vision problems, hearing loss, permanent liver damage, persistent migraines and headaches and skeletal hyperostosis which is an excessive bone growth that occurs along the sides of the spine.
But perhaps, the two most bothersome of all Accutane side effects are its potential to cause severe birth defects if taken by pregnant women or women that became pregnant while taking the drug and the suggested link between the intake of Accutane and the changes in mood, severe depression and suicidal thoughts.
As one can see, the side-effects from taking the prescription drug Accutane can be quite pronounce and troublesome for that person over the long term, especially if they are female and pregnant. Now if one is looking for natural ways on how to get rid of pimples, then he or she only needs to look at their diet. The reason for this, according to DiCarmine is that diet is one of the major causes of acne outbreaks. This is usually because of food allergies that the person is not aware of. A lot of these foods that will produce acne and outbreaks are wheat based products, processed foods and dairy.
Another great home remedy for acne, according to DiCarmine are steaming and lemon juice. The reason for steaming is because it helps in removing dirt, dust and oil from the skin pores without aggravating pimples. Lemon juice is great because it will help to dry up the acne and pimples when applied right before bed time. Another natural and home remedy without the use of medications.
Another clever and slightly odd natural remedy would be a mixture of honey and cinnamon. Simply mix the two together into a paste and apply where the pimples are. The next morning, one should wash their face with cold water and he or she will notice the dead and dried pimple. But the most quirkiest method out of all of them is toothpaste. Supposedly, the fluoride in the paste is a great drying agent so if one wanted to dry up a pimp over night, then all he or she has to do is dab a little bit on the effected area and rub in until dry and gone.

Prostate Treatment and Lower Back Pain Relief with New Thermobalancing Therapy in 21st Century Health TV Series Starting from June 2, 2012, Highlights Fine Treatment
London, UK (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
The new natural approach to the treatment of lower back pain and prostate enlargement with Dr. Allens therapeutic devices will be featured in 21st Century Health TV series starting on Fox Business Network on June 2nd, 2012 and later on other channels, Fine Treatment reveals. Conventional treatments for lower back pain, such as painkillers and surgeries, as well as for BPH, like drugs and removal procedures, may cause a number of serious side effects. This is unacceptable nowadays as the new Thermobalancing Therapy can treat these conditions naturally. Furthermore, with the price under $ 150, this treatment is the most cost-effective on the market.
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), chronic lower back pain is most likely caused by degenerative conditions such as arthritis or disc disease. Certain medicines may lead to side effects, including drowsiness and even liver damage. Since invasive back surgery is not always successful, it should be performed only on patients with progressive neurologic disease or damage to the peripheral nerves. As for the price, the American Medical Association (JAMA) states, annual medical costs for lower back pain treatment have increased from $ 4,695 per person to $ 6,096. However, money hasnt helped to reduce the number back pain cases; in 2005, 15% of U.S. adults reported back problems up from 12% in 1997.
The Health-Day Reporter S. Reinberg (USNews) reviewed existing studies on BPH medications in March 2011, and stated: the use of dutasteride (Avodart) and finasteride (Proscar and Propecia) were linked to erectile dysfunction, depression and loss of libido. According to the Mayo Clinic, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) risks can include urinary problems, retrograde ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and need for follow-up treatment after surgery.
Unlike drugs and surgeries, Dr. Allens devices improve the blood circulation in the affected area relieving pain and other symptoms. They work on the capillary level addressing the underlying causes of lasting diseases. Watch a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCFy_jZgCLw
The Thermobalancing Therapy helps to treat lower back pain and enlarged prostate naturally, says Dr. Allen. 21st Century Health TV series discuss the fenominal results of the new natural treatment enabled by Dr. Allens therapeutic devices.
