This has been a great day. I’ve been in a good mood most of the day and i haven’t lost my temper (much) or my mind today. I actually played with both kids and enjoyed it. I set up an obstacle course for Kage and giggled while i climbed over boxes, under his little table, under Mia’s swing and stepped over the footstool with him. He enjoyed it. I was able to smile and revel in my baby girl’s laughter as I tickled and nuzzled her. I haven’t enjoyed her very much since her birth, so today was particularly sweet as I was able to appreciate my daughter while not getting angry at her for being a baby.

Some days I wondered if I would survive. I did not have time to dwell on my worries, however, because I was raising my grandchildren. Thankfully, I have good coping skills. Though my grandchildren are brilliant and have some coping skills, tragedy hit at a vulnerable time of life. My granddaughter worries about being alone in the house, an understandable feeling after a house up the street was just robbed.

There are very few sources of fluoride in people’s diets except water or products where it is an additive. The source of the fluoride doesn’t really matter as most inorganic fluorides hydrolyze to form fluoride and bifluoride ion in water. Many toothpastes use stannous fluoride. Many countries add fluoride to salt or even to milk as tooth decay is considered to be a much more serious health risk than fluoride exposure. The exposure from all sources should be kept below 1.0 pm so those who have fluoridate water or salt should not use other fluoridated products or toothpaste. If you are worried about fluoride in you water, there are water filters that remove it from drinking water and it is easy to avoid it from other sources.

Real trouble arises when you have what is known as chronic insomnia. This is the kind of insomnia that lasts for more than six months, possibly even for years. Chronic insomnia can be caused by variety of psychiatric or medical illnesses. In women in particular hormonal shifts can cause drastic sleep disturbances. But sometimes chronic insomnia comes about of its own accord.

Following up on one of last week’s posts, the case was laid out that budget cuts can ultimately hurt the public health. An article this week in the Sacramento Bee puts further force behind that assertion. The Department of health and human services annually offers free influenza shots to the poorest children in Sacramento elementary schools. However, due to state budget cuts, the Department had to end the services to the poorest of local children.

Choose a diet moderate in sugar. A diet With lots of sugars has too many calories and too few nutrients for most people and can contribute to tooth decay.

Unfortunately, I have succumbed to this disease more often than I would like to admit. Compassion Fatigue is not just a “fuzzy” word for burnout. This syndrome occurs commonly in those who are long-term caregivers, and it depletes, not just the mind and body, but the very core of a human being. I found my own core values of care and compassion eroding after dealing constantly with sickness, disease and trauma in the emergency room environment.

Walking. That’s right walking those calories and fat cells off right in or near your home. The cost is absolutely free, except for a few minutes of your time. Walking is the most basic and simplest form of exercise anyone can do. Start off slow at first, walking only 10 to 15 minutes. Eventually build your endurance up to 30 minutes or greater gradually over time. Walking is a cardiovascular type exercise that is essential to maintaining a strong healthy heart. You will experience enhanced lung capacity in the process.

Long Term Care – Who’s Going To Pay For It?

Each of us has some insomnia some of the time. We all have days (nights) where worries, stress and/or illness of us or those we love keep us awake at night.

Two days ago I swore I would not set myself up for a fall by fighting with him about a nap. And what did I do? I tried to force him to take a nap. He fought, Mia cried, and i blew my top. I began throwing things – the box of diaper wipes, Kage’s little TV tray, the plastic measured cup Kage has been carrying around, a Styrofoam cup – anything to keep me from losing my temper on my kids.

Last night I was pleased, thinking I was well on the road to recovery. Maybe I just needed to be reminded that it is a long road with lots of bumps and potholes.

So if you seriously think you will never need LTC and thus have no plans of preparing for your future healthcare needs, you might as well start planning which of your assets should go first. Is it the house, or perhaps, the commercial property and apartment that you rent out? If it’s your entire nest egg, ask your state’s Medicaid program about the asset limit as this could be around ,500 to ,000.

I began writing letters to the media, politicians, and the Department of health and human services and i took pictures of the bruises and conditions that I witnessed on my camera phone. It was only after I was terminated for this and went to the local T.V news station that my concerns got any attention. After airing a segment on the local news, others came forward and DHHS did a thorough inspection.

Oral Cancer (mouth cancer) is included in a specific group of cancers called oral and head and neck cancer (OHNC). It’s estimated that between 70 – 80 percent of all cases of OHNC are due to tobacco use and heavy alcohol consumption.

There is no “one stop shop” for data security within an office. Why? Simple. No two offices are the same. Each office has different needs and different constraints. Things to debate at this stage are economic feasibility, facilities constraints, staffing desires, adaptability from current security models, and countless other obstacles. Fight through them. It’s worth it.

Kathleen Sebelius, the U.S. health and human services Secretary, refused to change the rules to save the little girl’s life. Sarah Murnaghan’s parents contacted Kathleen Sebilius and plead for their daughter’s life. Lawmakers have also urged Kathleen Sebilius to act.

All smokers harbor the secret hope that they will be spared the disease and death that follows nicotine addiction. We tell ourselves we’ll quit in time and somehow dodge the bullet that smoking is.

It is at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights where you can find her working. She moves in any department depending where they need her as she is a floating nurse. Many hospitals are still running on tight schedules despite the us economy showing signs of slowing down. Patients expect more from hospitals these days she says. Many hospitals operate at lightning speed as the public demands are increasing and the patients are getting sicker.

This second time was different. I felt tired – actually exhausted – nauseated, moody and just plain awful. In addition, I constantly felt this sense of dread – a feeling of impending doom. It was like a black cloud that hung around my shoulders and my head.

Fats, or lipids, have gotten a bad rap. They are blamed for everything from bulging bathing suits to life-threatening heart attacks. However fat can be used as energy by the body when glycogen (stored glucose) is depleted, or in the absence of carbohydrates. We can’t live without fat in our diets. But because fat supplies twice as many calories as do protein and carbohydrates, eating too much fat packs on the pounds.

First, define your goals. Don’t just think, “I’ve got to lose some weight.” Pick a target, even if it’s a moving target. Some dieters like to think in increments, for instance, losing 20 poinds, then then reestablishing a new goal until they arrive at a weight level they feel most comfortable with. Other dieters-to-be are more daring. Choosing a weight loss goal of 100 pounds might seem impossible for some, but for other dieters, it’s their best and most direct strategy. Set a goal that you feel most comfortable with and stick with it.

Someone put the body of Bascher Davon Moyd Jr. in Christ Hospital’s morgue after he was stillborn Dec. 21, the state Department of health and human services said. The remains were then discarded.

Focus on the cluster of questions around stem cell research and cloning for a moment. One group of “dedicated and committed researchers” considers the human embryo a ball of cells and nothing more. Because it is undeveloped and would not survive out of the womb, any research is permissible, including the new proposals. The medical benefits, remote as they may be, wholly justify the action. At the opposite pole, many of us Christians (I only wish I could say the majority) believe that from conception onwards the embryo has the full status of humanity. On principle, this allows no research or use not for the benefit of that particular embryo, including both present and new potential uses.

Apart from these health-related risks to being overweight, these teens tend to have more problems making friends, getting dates, and finding jobs than do their thinner friends.
