What Services Does an Ocular Allergy Clinic Provide?

What Services Does an Ocular Allergy Clinic Provide?

Health
If you habitually suffer from itchy, red, or watery eyes, particularly if these symptoms come and go with the seasons, you will probably benefit from a visit to an allergy clinic. There, a specialist can talk to you about your symptoms, run some tests, and determine whether you are suffering from ocular allergies. If so, you and the doctor will then discuss treatment options. Ocular Allergies People who suffer from eye allergies experience inflammation of the tissues in and around the eye in response to an otherwise harmless substance in the environment. In addition to itching and redness, vision can become blurry, and sensitivity to light can increase. Pollen, pet dander, and mold spores are common causes, so as you might expect, eye allergies often occur alongside hay fever t...

Four Effective Natural Treatments for a Herniated Disc

Health
A herniated disc is something almost all of us wish to avoid, but many will suffer from at least one point in our lifetimes. It occurs when the jelly-like discs separate, or vertebrae push out from the space between the vertebrae where it is meant to be contained, often causing an excruciating amount of pain in the process. While the conservative or “wait-and-see” approach is often recommended prior to seeking surgery for a herniated disc, many doctors ultimately recommend surgical intervention as the ultimate solution for herniated disc treatment. Unfortunately, surgery is associated with a variety of risks that vary in their likelihood and severity. From a long recovery time to have a negative reaction to the anesthetic, to the risk of worsening the injury instead of resolving it,
Dental Gold and the Cremation Process

Dental Gold and the Cremation Process

Health
Dental work is required throughout the lifespan of any person. Extractions, fillings, and implants are just some of the work that may have been done to a person's teeth. When a person dies, the body may contain implants. Fillings and implanted teeth form part of the implants that a person may have had during living years. The family of the decedent or the person himself may have already decided what to do with the implants after death. Although many types of materials for fillings and implants exist, gold is a highly valuable compound sometimes used in repairing teeth. Removing gold from the teeth Whether a person is buried or cremated, they may wish to have the gold removed from the mouth. Dental gold and cremation go hand-in-hand since the gold must be removed from the teeth ...

Chiropractic Care for a Herniated Disc

Health
Herniated discs, also known as ruptured discs, are severe injuries that cannot be ignored or merely treated with painkillers. A herniated disc occurs when some of the soft tissue inside of a spinal disc leaks out due to a rupture in the disc. While herniated discs are sometimes caused by auto accidents or other major trauma, they are usually caused by ongoing wear and tear from sports, poor posture, lifting heavy boxes, and or other movement and activities. Genetic factors can also increase your risk of herniated disc injuries. Typically, herniated discs are preceded by bulging discs, which are inflamed spinal discs that are at risk of rupturing. Spinal discs are critical to your body’s movement and provide protection for the nerves that communicate with your entire body. If left un
The Importance of Medical Cart Power Supplies

The Importance of Medical Cart Power Supplies

Health
Medical carts have become increasingly specialized over the years. The range of available peripherals has also expanded over time. All these changes have depended heavily on one important aspect: the power supply for the electronic equipment used on medical carts. In fact, power supply issues could be considered to be the greatest challenge ever faced by medical cart manufacturers and users. The supply of power, or lack thereof, to a medical cart can make or break its functionality and economical viability. A Highly Charged Situation The first concern has been that the medical cart power supply needed to be sustainable. Enormous problems could result if a battery on an emergency cart were to run out of power in the middle of an emergency medical procedure. Workload and frustratio...

Every year on April 22, Earth Day is celebrated worldwide to encourage people to “think green” and promote awareness of the importance of being environmentally friendly.

How to Treat Acid Reflux without Artificial Ingredients?

Health
Do you constantly feel discomfort or a burning sensation moving from your stomach area to your chest and sometimes into your throat? Chances are you may suffer from acid reflux. Acid reflux, commonly known as heartburn, occurs when acid from your stomach flows backward (essentially up) into your esophagus, the muscular tube that joins your stomach to your throat. It can happen when the lower esophageal sphincter (think of it as a little door) becomes weakened and can’t close properly to prevent the backflow of acid (Figure 1). It is important to note that it is not the acid or amount of acid that causes it, you need the acid in your stomach to aid digestion and keep the food moving quickly. Certain foods can cause acid reflux, but it can be a common occurrence in people who need to m
