Advantages of a Walk in Clinic

A Clinic for Common Injuries

According to Shawn Evans, MD, an emergency medical physician, it’s common to see people go to the ER for after-hours care on minor injuries without realizing there is another option available.

A walk-in clinic is available for injuries that need immediate care but are not considered serious enough to warrant a visit to the emergency room. Most injuries that are treated at an urgent care center include minor burns, minor fractures, falls, accidents, infections, sprains, cuts, and common illnesses such as a cold or flu. Many clinics also provide diagnostic services that require the use of X-rays, and lab tests. A person should go to the emergency room or call 911 if their injury or illness is possibly life threatening or requires immediate attention, such as a serious head injury, or a possible heart attack or stroke.

Ma Huang

The Ma Huang plant is an evergreen shrub that grows to an average of 50 cm tall and is native to desert regions in the countries where it can be found. Characterized by its variety of colors, the shrub has tiny leaves that remain green only briefly and tough yet flexible stems. Dependant upon the particular species, Ma Huang shrubs can display colors including green, yellow, red, or brown-gray.

Ma Huang works as a stimulant. Biologically similar to methamphetamines, the substance derived from this plant has an effect similar to Epinephrine, only far stronger. A variety of stories concerning the use of Ma Huang exist in folklore, including its use by guards of Genghis Khan as a way to remain awake while on duty, and the consumption by early Mormons in Utah as a replacement for caffeine-loaded coffee and tea.

Worst Prescription Pharmaceutical Drugs

 

The first worst prescription pharmaceutical drugs are Vicodin and Oxycontin. These are listed here not because they have the worst side effects, but because they are the most freely available and the most abused. In fact, Vicodin and Oxycotin account for more deaths than ALL of the illegal drugs, like cocaine, meth, heroin, LSD, etc., combined. The reason is because alcohol should never be mixed with either Vicodin or Oxycontin. Yet almost all of those who abuse these drugs combine them with alcohol. The amount of pills taken should not be more than 1 or 2 at a time. There are those who will take 4 or more pills at a time. Combine those 4 pills with alcohol and you have a recipe for disaster.

There are certain ratings used by research facilities which rate drugs based on their benefit versus risk ratios. What is difficult to understand is …

Selenium

Selenium and Glutathione

Our bodies use Selenium to produce glutathione peroxidase, which is a part of the body’s natural antioxidant defense system, manufactured in the liver. Some glutathione is released into the bloodstream, where it helps to maintain the integrity of red blood cells while protecting your immune systems white blood cells and contributing to the body’s natural defense

Research Suggests that Selenium Supports Immune Health

Selenium is a requirement for a healthy, well-functioning immune system, and in a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers investigated the effects of beta-carotene and selenium supplementation in patients who had deficiencies of selenium and vitamin A.

The researchers concluded that glutathione plays an important role in the natural enzymatic defense system in detoxifying hydrogen peroxide in water, therefore selenium supplementation could be of great interest in protecting cells against oxidative stress.

Cholesterol Solution

So what are these compounds, and why hasn’t the doctor told me about them? Well, there are a couple of them. The first is Pantethine. Pantethine is a compound in your body that is created from vitamin B-5. Although your body produces it through enzyme metabolism, supplementation of Pantethine has been shown to significantly improve your cholesterol levels. As your body uses Pantethine, it slows down cholesterol production in your liver. It also increases the rate at which your metabolism uses fats. Because of this effect, Pantethine has been clinically demonstrated to increase your level of good cholesterol (HDL) while lower the level of bad cholesterol (LDL) in your body.

Where is the proof? Japan has actually been using Pantethine for over 30 years. There are a number of clinical trials that demonstrate its effectiveness on cholesterol levels, as well as improved liver function.

In addition to Pantethine, the mineral …

Green Pharmacy

The Green Pharmacy has also been translated into many different languages, so no matter what part of the world you live in the Green Pharmacy should be available. Hopefully eventually we will see doctors and pharmacists read the book and perhaps even use the information to help their patients. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful day? One day “green pharmaceuticals” may be part of daily life.

There are several reasons why interest has peaked with herbal medicines. There is more fear of synthetic pharmaceuticals and the unknown factors associated with those drugs. We worry about the dramatic side effects as well. In just ten years, over half the drugs that were approved by the FDA have been recalled because of unanticipated side effects.

There is another reason for the growing interest in green pharmaceuticals. People are beginning to understand that all living herbs contain thousands of chemicals, and when you choose …

L-Methionine

Methionine is lipotropic. That is, it is a chemical substance that helps the liver to process fats (choline, inosol, and betaine). It prevents fat from accumulating in the liver and maintains normal liver function.

It is used to make creatine that is naturally found mostly in muscle tissue. This gives the muscles the energy to move. Athletic performance is boosted in short and intense workouts. Creatine is necessary for all muscle function. It supports heart and circulatory systems.

Methionine is very important for the development of healthy collagen. This helps to make skin, nails, and connective tissues. It helps to reduce inflammatory histamines in the body.

Conditions that may benefit from treatment with methionine include arthritis and chronic allergies. AIDS, pancreatitis, Parkinson’s, urinary tract infections and some forms of depression may also be treated with methionine as a supplement.

Antioxidate Supplement List

Antioxidants are a classification of several organic substances, such as Vitamins A, C, and E, selenium, and carotenoids. These substances are formed together to create the name “antioxidant,” and are effective in helping to prevent cancer, stroke, and heart disease. At the molecular and cellular levels, antioxidants serve to deactivate certain particles known as free radicals. In humans, free radicals usually come in the form of oxygen. The oxygen wants to be oxidized and this process can be carcinogenic. Free radicals are the natural by-products of many processes within your cells. They are also created by radiation, cigarette smoke, and other harmful environmental factors.

One of the biggest uses of antioxidants for bodybuilders is its role on the metabolism. In the body, energy is produced safely in the presence of antioxidant intake, which are able to be neutralize any excess of free radicals. Free radicals destroy muscle tissue in search …

Prescription Drug Coverage

Most people obtain their prescription drug coverage as a part of their overall medical insurance plan. Most medical plans include some form of prescription drug coverage, and some states actually require employers to include this coverage in the medical plans that they offer to employees. Whether purchased independently or in combination with other coverage, the available types of coverage are similar.

Traditional, or fee-for-service coverage is the most common form of prescription drug coverage. This type usually has an annual deductible amount in addition to the amount of the premiums. In general, the lower the premiums, the higher this deductible amount will be. This type of policy pays a percentage of your overall drug bill once the deductible has been met. This percentage is usually around 80%. This type of coverage usually requires you to pay for your prescriptions up front, and you are reimbursed by filing claims. Another aspect …

Copper Gluconate

A book we recently read on copper stated that copper is “one of the most important blood antioxidants and prevents the rancidity of poly-unsaturated fatty acids.”

Copper can also help keep cell membranes healthy and is “active in the storage and release of iron to form hemoglobin for red blood cells.”

Copper acts as an immune system booster, and it also plays a role in keeping nerves and bones healthy.

More potential benefits of copper gluconate include: helping reduce high cholesterol levels in humans, osteoporosis, wound healing, cardiac arrhythmia, hypoglycaemia, peripheral vascular disease, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis to name just a few.
