March 24, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

The evaluation has many steps, so make sure you child knows that they might be there for a little while. The audiologist will use an otoscope, like those found in most doctors’ offices, to look inside your child’s ears. He or she might pull on their ears to get a better view, but this is an easy and painless process overall. It is usually followed with a tympanometry test, which is used to test how the eardrum moves. To complete this test, the doctor will simply place a small plug in the ear for a few seconds to then see what is recorded on a screen.

The next step of the process may be a little more daunting for children. You may be asked to do what is called a pure tone threshold test, which involves sitting in a specially designed room and listening to beats of different frequencies through …

Fix Flat Feet

March 20, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0
  • Keep them straight. Take a minute to evaluate your standing position. Stand up and walk around the room for a minute. Stop and look straight ahead. Now, without changing the position of your feet, look down and see which way your feet are pointing. For most people, if they were to draw an imaginary straight line out of their pinky toe they would find their feet are pointing outward – almost to the point of “duck feet”. If that’s the case with you, turn your foot at the ankle so that the imaginary line goes straight out in front of you – so that the lines from both feet are parallel and headed toward any object in the distance in front of you. Remember that position. Every time you stop to stand still take notice of your foot position and adjust accordingly.

Before Orthopedic Surgery

March 20, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

For instance, for pain radiating from the neck to the little finger, a doctor might suspect an injury at the level of the eighth cervical nerve (C8)-the lowest in the neck-but would want to be able to see that injury on a scan and verify it with an EMG/NCS (Electromyogram/Nerve Conduction Study), since it might call for nonsurgical treatment or be caused by a condition not related to the disks, such as thoracic outlet syndrome. Plain X-rays are one step in diagnosing an injury but are not as informative as CT scans (Computed Tomography), or an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), which provide extremely detailed information about the examined area. These may be accompanied by the EMG/NCS, which sends electrical impulses through the patient’s affected nerves and muscles. Ideally, the data from the tests should conform with what a doctor observes on physical examination, the outcome of conservative treatment, and the …

About Proper Fasting

March 16, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

Studying the body, we know that the skin is the largest organ and second is the liver. The function of the liver is multifaceted but its largest task is detoxification. This is important to understand because it is not necessary to buy products, take supplements or flush anything out of the body with a particular substance. The liver has the ability to breakdown any and everything that enters the body. It can get overwhelmed like any other organ. So, for the liver to do an exceptional job at detoxifying our blood and tissues, the abstinence of ingesting food decreases its burden. When you buy any type of product to detox, understand that the liver is still the main laborer in the process of ridding the body of toxins. Nothing can take the primary position that the liver possesses in the body. The spleen and kidneys are also detoxifying organs but …

Vitamin D Affects Thyroid Conditions

March 16, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

Vitamin D Production

Vitamin D is unique compared to other vitamins, because it is nearly impossible to get what you need from food. Instead, your body produces it naturally in the skin when you’re exposed to natural or artificial UVB light.

Once your body produces vitamin D or you take it as a supplement, it’s sent to the liver. The liver transforms vitamin D into 25(OH)D and sends it various areas of the body and activates it. Once activated, it is ready to perform its duties.

Autoimmune Conditions

Autoimmunity occurs when the immune system treats a person’s healthy tissues and cells as a threat. When this happens, their body produces an immune response and attacks. This response can cause damage, inflammation, and chronic pain in many parts of the body.

Vitamin D deficiencies may reduce the body’s ability to fight infection and may link to or cause autoimmune diseases such …
