I Had Some Stubborn Love Handles

I worked really hard to lose 35 pounds. That might not sound like a lot, but I am not a tall person. At five foot two inches, that extra 35 pounds was really obvious! I thought that losing the weight would mean that I would be more toned, but I quickly discovered that my methods were not working at all on my love handles. They were smaller, but they were still there. I had no idea how to get rid of them, so I did a search for aesthetic Singapore to see if I could find a clinic that could help me.

I was not taking the easy way out. I tried for several months to get toned. I tried different exercises that were supposed to target that area, but nothing was working for me.…

Florida Healthy Kids Program – Helping Families Stay Healthy

Florida Healthy Kids Program - Helping Families Stay Healthy

The rise of children who are uninsured is rising in the state of Florida. This is why the Florida Healthy Kids program is now in effect. If your child is from age 5 to age 18, they could possibly be covered with this great program. Healthy Kids is not only for those families with low income, but for any family who is having a difficult time insuring the children in their family. To get started all you need to do is call them or go online to their website and fill out the application. From there you will be contacted by a representative within a few weeks and they will inform you of the assistance that the children of your family are eligible for.

With the Florida Healthy Kids program, there are multiple payment options. The first is for low income families who are approved for the no premium (amount paid to have insurance) option. This means that no money will be sent directly to the state for your child to maintain health insurance. However, you may have to pay some low cost fees (co-pay) when you visit the doctor or hospital. Another option is for families who can afford to pay fifteen or twenty dollars a month. Your representative will work with you on which of the two suits your family according to your income.

Finally, some families need their children covered with insurance, but their job will not cover it or it is too expensive to purchase from a private insurance company. The full-pay option may be suitable for you. With this selection you will pay a low premium to the Healthy Kids program on a monthly basis to maintain coverage. Both the partial pay and full pay options may have co-pays or fees charged for emergency services, surgery or other high cost medical needs, but the fee will be minimal compared to private insurance costs. No matter what payment plan you are accepted for, keep in mind that you must re-apply every year for the program. This is needed to make sure your child is still in need of the program and that your income level has not changed.

Overall, it is important to weigh out all of your options for health care for your child. With whatever choice you decide on, make sure that you are always paying your fess, you renew after the year and …

Sunbeds Should Have Healthcare Warnings

Sunbeds Should Have Healthcare Warnings

This often involves buying a face tan or the considerably more expensive option of traveling to an overseas climate where the weather is sunnier, but for many people the local tanning salon is a quick-fix solution to the problem of pasty skin. Recent evidence shows that what many medical health insurance customers have come to rely on for their bronzing regime is actually a harmful and potentially deadly exercise, however. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has declared that sunbeds are definitively carcinogenic, meaning those who use them are putting themselves at risk of developing skin cancer.

This research has been backed up by Rebecca Freeman, a spokeswoman for the British Association of Dermatologists, who said that the apparatus should be viewed in the same light as other potentially harmful factors such as cigarettes and alcohol. “Many salons are currently free to advertise somewhat spurious health ‘benefits’ of using sunbeds, but offer no advice on the health risks of using a sunbed,” she explained. Ms Freeman added that people with affordable health insurance should be subject to adequate cautions before they use the equipment, with attendants outlining any potential hazards.

Furthermore, other studies show that some sunbeds are not maintained correctly and are known to emit very high levels of UV that are not regulated through frequent monitoring. “Perhaps more worryingly there is also evidence that children are able to access sunbeds in a number of salons. There is most certainly a need for strong regulation of sunbed salons,” the representative explained. After the authors of the IARC report stated that young women are particularly at risk from tanning salons due to their high usage, Ms Freeman says the government should move to implement compulsory measures to protect people with private health cover from the harmful effects of tanning booths.…

How to temporarily treat TMJ syndrome in the absence of a doctor

How to temporarily treat TMJ syndrome in the absence of a doctor

Temporomandibular joint disorder or TMJD is one of the most common facial syndromes and affects millions of people. This is called Temporomandibular or TMJ joint syndrome by others. TMJ syndrome is a collection of acute and chronic signs and symptoms related to the structure and function of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the entire skull.

Many people say TMJ is related to discomfort in the area but technically, TMJ itself, or the Temporomandibular joint are two joints on the opposite side of your face right in front of the ear. Our TMJ helps us open, close and move our mouths and that is where our jaws attach to our skulls.

Signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders depend on what causes these signs and symptoms to occur but the most common of them is pain. The pain can be short term or it can be long term depending on the reason why there is pain. Activities where a person moves the muscles and bones in the joints can also produce popping or grinding noises. In some cases there may even be pain in other areas of the head such as migraines, headaches and earaches especially in the morning.

Many health conditions can damage the structure of the TMJ and can cause it to fail to function. TMJ syndrome can be caused by something as simple as a sports injury or by something serious like depression. Because Temporomandibular joint syndrome can be caused by a variety of health conditions, treatment can also be approached in various ways.

In other words, TMJ treatment depends on your doctor’s diagnosis of all the signs and symptoms that you experience. In cases when you don’t have access to a doctor, you can temporarily overcome the pain with these simple tips.

Keep your jaw rested

Having your jaws rested is a good start to relieve the pain. Eating tough chewy food must be prohibited to rest the jaw muscles.

Cold or warm compress

Using warm or cold bags on the affected area may help lessen the pain for a while.

Medication against inflammation

Another possible fast acting relief is to use anti-inflammatory medications that you have used in the past. This article explains what Temporomandibular joint disorder is and gives some suggestions on how you can temporarily relieve the pain in the absence of a physician.…

Autism – Help With the High Cost of Therapy

Autism - Help With the High Cost of Therapy

Having a child diagnosed on the Autism spectrum is difficult and heart breaking for parents. There are so many unknowns with which to contend. How functional will the child be as an adult? How severe is their specific diagnosis? As a spectrum of developmental disorders, diagnoses can range from classic autism to high functioning autism, from Asperger’s syndrome to Pervasive Developmental Delay. Each has different challenges and potential outcomes in terms of a child’s development and later independence. Once the initial shock of the diagnosis wears off, however, there are additional challenges in terms of paying for treatments and therapies.

For a young family without healthcare insurance, an autism diagnosis can be even more difficult to face. Treatment for autism includes occupational therapy, play/socialization therapy, behavior modification therapies, visits to developmental pediatricians, neurologists, psychologists, and even psychiatrists when needed. Children on the spectrum may need a variety of medications at different times in their development to help with things such as anxiety, impulse control, and other challenges. It often takes a team of medical and developmental professionals for a child on the spectrum to reach their full potential and learn to overcome some of their challenges. These multidisciplinary teams and their suggested treatment options are expensive for someone without insurance.

Even those families who have health insurance often struggle with overwhelming costs not covered by medical insurance. Adaptive toys, therapeutic equipment, and home safety devices are often not covered. Children with autism are characteristically wanderers, requiring parents to invest in specially designed home security systems that warn them if their child opens a door or window during the night or while the parent isn’t looking. These systems can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. Likewise, therapeutic tools such as weighted clothing and sun lamps for sensory issues are not covered by every healthcare insurance plan.

Numerous organizations and charities can assist with out of pocket expenses relative to an autism spectrum diagnosis. There are loaner programs for equipment, charities which help find donated equipment, toys, and home therapy tools. There are also nonprofit organizations that can assist with respite care, play therapy, and appropriate day care arrangements for children on the spectrum. For families who are uninsured, underinsured, or simply cannot bear the burden of out of pocket expenses, the best place to start is your local community health agencies. The health department, department of human resources or family and …
