Lessons at Indian Hospital About Births
By DENISE GRADY
A small, underfunded hospital in Arizona, with about 500 births a year, is outperforming richer institutions when it comes to keeping Caesarean rates down.

My Take: Technology sometimes need to take a back seat. While we have more data in our labor and delivery units from all of our technology we may not be improving outcomes. Natural birthing methods should be encourage whenever possible. The rush to deliver often produces increases in the cesarean section rate.

My Take;

Improving one’s memory should be done all during your life. Proven methods of reading and stimulating your mind throughout childhood, adulthood and beyond should be promoted daily. When early dementia sets in, it is really too late to undo change.

My Take:

Food borne illnessses (FBI) are prevalent. Imagine between 1998-2007 there were 470 outbreaks of FBI in the nations schools. This contributed to 23,000 children getting sick! Imagine ….. in the USA….. as a parent I AM CONCERNED!!!! A a physician I AM APPALLED! As a US citizen, I AM EMBARRASSED AND DISGUSTED!!!!

CALL TO ACTION: Contact your Representative and Senator in Congress and ask that the bill sponsored by Kristen Gillibrand, D-NY, be supported and pushed through ASAP.

All of our children are at risk,…. it is just a matter of time before they will be affected if not already.

Peace and blessings for the New Year!

My Take:

Healthy living includes getting regular exercise as well as good nutrition. It is important to get outside and reap the benefits of the sunshine and air around us. Constantly staring at a computer screen in a work module is not helping our bodies maintain the best of health.
