And the only answer was a very big surprise! with an investing standpoint and as the member of a society, we aware what illnesses are the most common prevalent, where the graph of these diseases are rising. And what the medications are being prescribed to treat these diseases. High Blood pressure, for instance, is a disease that affects more than 55.7% of the Indian population.

Why OPD Health Plans ? Nowadays OPD Medical Health plan is inevitable in today’s inflation hit-age. Medical expenses are increasing at an unabated pace but have you ever thought your health plan might as well have considerable gaps. Even a proper mediclaim policy will not pay for a seasonal illness or a broken finger. Moreover, the cost of periodic doctor consultation, preventive check-ups, medicines and called as out-of-the-pocket expenses, can erode your hard-earned savings. Also, is it really fair to pay Rs.15000 more every year towards your health policy to avail OPD (out-patient department) benefit just only of Rs 12,000? Insurance is a costly affair: There are so many mediclaim policies on the market that cover both hospitalization and OPD treatment costs on a cashless basis but in-network hospitals and…

vitamins amid claims they can increase the risk of heart disease? Both are found in many multivitamin capsules or can be taken on their own.

Healthcare, Heart Disease
Scientists are warning against the use of certain vitamins amid claims they can increase the risk of heart disease.

7 Fun Ways to Exercise As A Family

7 Fun Ways to Exercise As A Family

Asthma, Breast Cancer, Child Care, Healthcare
I remember how easy it was to “work out” in college. For one thing, I was walking miles each week just to get to class, and whenever I got stressed and needed a mental break from homework, I could just go to the gym on campus (for free) and get a workout in. I didn’t really understand people who “didn’t have time to workout.” And then… I became a mom… and I understood perfectly how difficult it is to find time to workout when most days, you are doing good if you can find time to go to the bathroom without your kids following you. The Importance of Family Exercise Unfortunately, while it gets tougher when we become parents, exercise remains just as important. In fact, with little ones watching…

Best Probiotics for Infant baby

Child Care, Healthcare
I’ve mentioned before how important gut health is for adults, kids, and babies. Much of our immune system resides in the gut, so making it as healthy as possible only makes sense. We try hard to optimize our guts by eating fermented foods, eliminating sugar, and taking a quality probiotic, but a baby’s sensitive gut needs a special approach. I get so many questions about if babies should receive probiotics, what type and how much. Fortunately, there are several quality baby probiotics for infants on the market to help improve digestive health even when baby hasn’t had the best start. Please note that I am not a doctor and this is in no way medical advice. Especially if a baby has a specific digestive challenge, I recommend working with a qualified practitioner…

A nine-year-old girl's fatal asthma attack has been linked to illegally high levels of air pollution. A nine-year-old girl's fatal asthma attack has been linked to illegally high levels of air pollution. Ella Kissi-Debrah lived 25m (80ft) from London's South Circular Road - a notorious pollution "hotspot". She experienced three years of seizures and hospital stays before her death in February 2013. During that time, local air pollution levels breached EU legal limits. No individual death has previously been directly linked to air pollution. According to a report by one of the UK's leading experts on asthma and air pollution, Prof Stephen Holgate, there was a "striking association" between Ella's emergency hospital admissions and recorded spikes in nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and PM10s, the most noxious pollutants. His report said there…

Why does it become Getting Harder to Care for low income earner Patients?

Allergy, Asthma, Cancer, Child Care, Healthcare, Heart Disease, HIV/Aids, Pre Existing, Seasonal Effects, Women's Health
We have been unable or unwilling to include social factors in how we support and pay doctors. In my more exasperated moments of residency, I must admit I was envious not only of what my supervising doctors knew, but also who they treated. Residents in our clinic, doctors in training just out of medical school, generally picked up patients they cared for in the hospital — with lots of medical problems, little medical care and often without a place to stay. The attending physicians who supervised us, it seemed, built their patient panels handing out business cards in luxury suites at Patriots games. Over time, as we transferred patients from one graduating resident to the next, our panels came to embody the city’s deepest and most recalcitrant social challenges. Symbol…

Healthcare, Men's Health, Women's Health
Not long after researchers discovered the benefits of probiotics—gut-friendly live bacteria—stores began teeming with products claiming to improve your microbiome. But experts caution that the powders, refrigerated pills, and yogurt and kefir with added strains won’t work for everyone. Are they right for you? Yes…for specific conditions. Gastrointestinal ones, namely. “The strongest evidence is for people with inflammatory bowel disease, and occasional abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea,” says Mary Ellen Sanders, researcher and founding president of the nonprofit International Scientific Association for Prebiotics and Probiotics. Other promising areas include treating allergies, anxiety, and obesity, though more research needs to be done. “Probiotics interact with your gut’s immune cells to help prevent infections and inflammation,” Sanders says. “They also create more microbes, which improves intestinal health.” Different strains are more effective…
