Hydrocolontherapy is a perfect complement to any program of weight loss, and patients can lose up to seven pounds in the first session. The treatment has many other benefits, including improving vascular and lymphatic circulation, stabilizing bowel functions, removing gas and improving digestive functions.

Hydrocolontherapy is also very useful in the removal of toxins such as anesthetics, antibiotics, drugs, alcohol and cigarettes and can be a great tool in rehabilitation programs. The treatment is also ideal before any cosmetic procedures, including both facial and body treatments.

Over time, toxins can adhere to the inner wall of the colon and cause auto-intoxication. Symptoms of auto-intoxication can include indigestion, constipation, hemorrhoids, migraines, ulcers and more. Hydrocolontherapy eliminates the toxins that cause auto-intoxication and leads to a healthier digestive system.

Nucleus Medical Media and Gwinnett Medical Center Launch New Healthcare Website Featuring Animated Patient Discharge Instructions

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

Nucleus Medical Media, Inc., the Internets leading creator of 3D medical animations, and Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville, Georgia, have launched a new patient education website featuring animated patient discharge instructions.

The Caring for Yourself After Surgery site features videos on seven common topics, including checking blood flow in the arms and legs, caring for surgical drains, and removing a Foley catheter. Gwinnett Medical Center uses the site as a resource before surgery and after patients are discharged from the hospital.

Gwinnett Medical Center PACU Clinical Resource Nurse Pamela Bear says the discharge animations are helping both families and her fellow nurses, Families state they feel more confident after watching the videos and like being able to access the website to reinforce the instructions after they have returned to their homes. Nurses feel the videos actually make their job easier. After the family and/or patient have reviewed the videos, discharge instructions have more meaning for the patients and their families.

Along with detailed 3D animations and narrations, each video features a downloadable PDF with comprehensive instructions and images to reinforce patient understanding of post-surgical care. Like the animations, the companion PDFs were created strictly following the principles of effective patient communication and health literacy.

“Our goals were to improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes,” said Lynne Sycamore, Patient and Family Education Coordinator with Gwinnett Medical Center. “First, our staff shows patients the discharge animations in the hospital and follows it up with a teach-back session. We discover what questions they have, and ask patients to explain the content in their own words. Afterward, patients receive a printed handout with a link to the website so they can review the material at home.”

Sycamore believes video animations help patients understand information since they can pause, rewind, and watch parts again. “It’s a beneficial element because often, when patients leave our care, they’re still feeling the effects of anesthesia, or they may be on pain medication. Patients may not remember everything we’ve told them. If they prefer the paper form, they can follow those instructions, and if they need more direction, they can go back to the website and watch the animations again,” she says.

Ron Collins, CEO and Cofounder of Nucleus Medical Media believes the website will help reduce hospital readmissions. When patients receive more health information before, during and after care, they are more likely to comply with medical treatment, he says. These narrated medical animations are perfect for health literacy because they require no reading and have moving graphic demonstrations of how to perform key tasks related to aftercare.

Gulfside Dental Celebrating Seniors Mardi Gras at Beaumont Civic Center

Beaumont, TX (PRWEB) February 09, 2013

It’s Mardi Gras time in the US, but you didn’t have to be in New Orleans to have some authentic Mardi Gras fun! The sights and sounds of a Mardi Gras celebration were plentiful at “Celebrating Seniors Mardi Gras Style” at the Beaumont Civic Center. Live zydeco music, dancing, and a host of vendors were there to celebrate Mardi Gras with the senior community of Southeast Texas.

The team from Gulfside Dental was there to bring in the festivities. “It is a great opportunity to talk to senior citizens about the overall effects of aging on dental health,” says Dr. Ashley DeMarco DDS of Gulfside Dental. “The older population-persons 65 or older-is expected to represent 19% of the population by 2030. As we get older, our oral health becomes more important than ever. Maintaining proper oral hygiene is not just for your teeth and gums, and senior citizens have unique dental needs and challenges.”

Oral health problems can hinder a person’s ability to be free of pain, discomfort, to maintain a satisfying and nutritious diet, and to enjoy interpersonal relationships and a positive self-image. A visit to the dentist allows for a comprehensive evaluation of teeth, gums, and soft tissues, and for prevention, early detection of oral health problems. Oral diseases and tooth loss are not inevitable with aging, and teeth can be expected to last in good condition all of a person’s life. As more aging people keep their teeth, more will be at risk for dental diseases and will need more preventative, restorative, and periodontal services.

Dr. DeMarco recommends, “regardless of age, brush twice a day with a flouride-containing toothpaste, floss at least once a day, and visit your dentist on a regular schedule for cleaning and an oral exam. Proper oral hygiene and regular visits to a dentist will ensure that you will enjoy that Mardi Gras gumbo and ettouffe well into your senior years.”

Gulfside Dental is a full-service dentistry practice now accepting patients from 6 months old to adults, located at 4179 Dowlen Road in Beaumont, TX.Gulfside Dental accepts most PPO insurances, Medicaid, CHIP and major credit cards. Office is open from 9am-6pm Monday thru Friday, and 9am-3pm on Saturdays.

Chinese Drywall Complaint Center Warns Healthcare Costs & Other Costs are Going up for the Feds Being AWOL for the Toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster in Florida & US Gulf

(PRWEB) February 13, 2012

The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, “Because we are talking about hydrogen sulfide contained in the imported toxic Chinese drywall, we fear in a decade or so, exotic cancers, exotic pulmonary issues, or exotic neurological disorders will start popping up in former, or current families, that have lived in toxic Chinese drywall homes. In a decade or so, we also believe the healthcare costs associated with long term exposure to toxic Chinese drywall will shoot up into the billions of dollars per year, in places like Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Southeast Texas, and Virginia. Because, President Obama, and various federal agencies have never showed up with a plan, to help these current, or former homeowners, and their families, we think the toxic Chinese drywall disaster in the US Southeast just gets more costly each year.” According to a April 9th 2010 USA Today news article discussing proposed US Consumer Products Safety Commission remediation protocols, “The guidelines recommend that electrical wiring, outlets, circuit breakers, fire alarm systems, carbon monoxide alarms, fire sprinklers, gas pipes and drywall need to be removed.” The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, “What part of this sounds good for a child’s health, or the health of a homeowner, a renter of a toxic Chinese drywall home, or their family members? If you are a HMO, a hospital, an appliance maker, or an insurance company does this sound good for your future business, in Florida, or the US Gulf? We know we can replace the microwaves, refrigerators, air conditioning coils, and smoke alarms. How do we replace someone’s child, who dies of cancer because they were exposed to toxic Chinese drywall off gassing hydrogen sulfide, in one of these homes, or condos?” http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com

Aside from the obvious healthcare costs, what are the other costs associated with toxic Chinese drywall?

The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, “How do effected communities like Fort Myers, or Cape Coral, Florida, the North Shore of New Orleans, Conroe, Texas or other communities throughout Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Southeast Texas, or Virginia ever recover, from the toxic Chinese drywall disaster, if it is never addressed by the federal government? In many to most cases we have observed, most homeowners simply walk away from their toxic Chinese drywall, home, or condominium, it becomes a foreclosure, the bank, or Fannie Mae, then simply resell the home AS IS, no disclosure about the toxic Chinese drywall. As soon as the new homeowner becomes aware of the toxic Chinese drywall, the home becomes a foreclosure all over again, or the current homeowner rents the home out to a renter-with no disclosure. Why have a US EPA? After three plus years of knowing about the toxic Chinese drywall disaster the US EPA has yet to come up with a uniform remediation protocol for fixing a toxic Chinese drywall house, and there are no mandatory federal disclosure rules? How is this a win for anyone?”

The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, “We guarantee the health effects related to toxic Chinese drywall off gassing hydrogen sulfide are going to be super bad for peoples health, including renters. Doubt us? Simply Google health effects to hydrogen sulfide. In the instance of renters, renting Gulf States homes, or condos, and not being told about the toxicity of the rental property, we fear a gigantic liability issue has been created for the landlord, and their homeowners insurance company. Once again, we think down the road, as severe health related issues become better defined with respect to toxic Chinese drywall, the liability to landlords, and their insurance companies, is going to be in the billions, and billions of dollars.”

The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, “At some point someone has to take charge of the toxic Chinese drywall disaster, and the sooner the better. We are not going to back down as a passionate advocate for victims of toxic Chinese drywall, it is an election year, and we will take care of our own. The Obama Administration, the US Congress, and a multitude of federal agencies need to take this disaster seriously, and there must be a meaningful federal response, that includes remediation protocols, health studies related to long term exposure to toxic Chinese drywall, and mandatory disclosure to potential buyers, or renters of the presence of toxic Chinese drywall in a home, or condominium, in all effected states.” http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com.
