The Ranch Treatment Center Hosts Open House in Honor of its 15th Anniversary


Nunnelly, TN (PRWEB) March 26, 2014

On April 4, 2014, The Ranch treatment center in Tennessee will celebrate its 15th anniversary with an open house featuring exhibits, food, live music, job information and a close-up look at its state-of-the-art facilities on a working horse and cattle ranch in the rolling hills of Nunnelly, Tenn.

Founded in 1999 with just 10 beds in one building, today the campus has more than a dozen buildings, with another on the way, and more than 100 beds. The Ranch offers gender-specific residential programs with a primary focus on emotional trauma, as well as conditions that frequently accompany trauma, such as chemical dependency, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and sex addiction and intimacy disorders. It also features experiential therapies, such as equine and adventure therapy.

Weve come a long way from the little mom and pop operation we started with, said Cheryl Brown, The Ranchs Director of Marketing/Outreach.

Dede Beasley, M.Ed, an equine-assisted psychotherapist at The Ranch, was there at the beginning when the center had just a few horses and equine therapy was a new idea.

Initially, I was just having people groom and lead the horses, she said, and I realized that what I saw between people and horses was similar to what happens between people.

Over the years she incorporated a variety of creative therapeutic interventions into the program as she found more and more ways that working with horses offered a common language for working on trust, attachment and boundary issues. Today, The Ranch has 18 horses and a 30-year-old donkey named Albert, one of the original four-footed founders.

Dawn Zurlinden, LCSW, was also at The Ranch in the early days.

Its amazing how much The Ranch has grown, said Zurlinden, who draws on experiential techniques as well as EMDR and brainspotting (advanced forms of therapy that involve eye movement) for deep trauma therapy. The Ranch was considered a model program even in the early years, and that was when we didnt have an eating disorders program or formal sex addiction program or state-of-the-art detox facility. Today theres so much more.

As for the programs 15th anniversary, she said, I celebrate it. Were serving a lot more clients in so many more ways.

The 8 Most Serious Cialis Side Effects

Cialis is hailed as a wonder drug for men who suffer from issues with erectile dysfunction, and truthfully it is a very formidable medication for combating sexual dysfunction. However, it is important to remember that Cialis is a medication, and should be treated with the same care and respect as any other prescription drug given to you by a doctor. Whilst not common, side effects when taking Cialis have been observed. What follows is a breakdown of some potential uncommon side effects you may suffer.

 

1. Cognitive Dysfunction

 

When taking a medication such as Cialis, one of the more common side effects relates to the cognitive portions. Side effects such as headaches, dizziness and fainting and drowsiness can be experienced when taking the drug. Of course, if taking multiple medications, or dangerous drinking alcohol whilst on the medication, these negative side effects can be exacerbated – always speak to your doctor about other long or short term medicine you are taking if you are prescribed Cialis.

 

2. Vision Defects

 

Much like the legend of the blue vision when taking Viagra, Cialis is another erectile dysfunction medication that affect your vision. Potential seeing problems are generally very minor – most common is the blue or green colour tint to your vision, however blurred vision and sensitivity to light have also been observed in some cases. The good news is that these sorts of vision problems are all temporary, and will generally subside after halting consumption of the medication or shortly after.

 

3. Stomach and Digestive Issues

 

As with any medications that hit your stomach lining, Cialis can have a negative effect on the digestive systems of some patients, especially those with sensitive guts or on other medications. Symptoms such as minor stomach discomfort, pain and indigestion have been recorded, but also noted are symptoms such as burping and acid reflux. Of course, if you experience any of these symptoms, patients should immediately stop using the medication until they speak to their doctor.

 

4. Body Aches

 

Another uncommon symptom experienced by those taking Cialis is irregular aches and pains throughout the muscular tissue of the body. These aches can either be a general pain of the muscles, or occasionally more targeted pain (generally around the back and lower back area). These pains can be exacerbated by intercourse, so it is suggested that you do not complete intercourse if you experience these symptoms.

 

5. Flushing

 

As with many erectile dysfunction medications, occasionally patients taking Cialis can experienced flushing and skin redness. Generally this occurs in the face, which can be a bit disturbing for patients taking the drug – however, it’s not a concern. The dilating of the blood vessels to fill the penis with blood also has an effect on the cells in the skin, causing it to flush red.

 

6. Fractured Penis

 

Of course, there are stories of more serious problems when taking Cialis. Many of these stories are pure urban myth, however there have been recorded instances of penis fracture. This is not necessarily due to the effects of Cialis though – many men who have not experienced such erect penises since their youths are almost unfamiliar with the flexibility (or lack thereof) and damage themselves during intercourse. This can cause immense pain and bruising, but is thankfully reversible. However, if not treated, damage to the shaft can become more dangerous – one incident is recorded in which a man suffered a fractured penis due to a Cialis overdose, but failed to seek immediate medical aid. Unfortunately, gangrene set in, and the damage was so bad that the penis in fact had to be amputated to prevent further risk.

 

7. Nonarteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (NAION)

 

A major vision issue, NAION is basically a stroke in the optic nerves, sometimes causing permanent vision loss or complete blindness. while some believe drugs like Cialis play a role in the syndrome, it is in fact more likely that the need for using erectile dysfunction medication can predict the occurrence of NAION, as many of the risk factors are the same (such as hypertension, diabetes and smoking). If you have any concern about your vision, or believe you fall into a risk category, it is very important to speak to your doctor before taking Cialis.

 

8. Heart Attacks

 

Unfortunately, for those with a risk of heart attack, taking erectile dysfunction drugs like Cialis is not a good idea. Studies have found that impotence drugs could potentially lead to blood clots by encouraging the platelets in the blood to clump together, raising heart attack risk. The research did however continue to clarify that impotence drugs by themselves are ‘not sufficient to cause a heart attack in healthy people’ and rather is mainly a risk to patients with pre-existing conditions. As always, if you have any concern about your cardiovascular health or genetic predispositions, it is very important to discuss these with your doctor before beginning Cialis as a treatment for impotence.

 

As with any medication, there are risks involved with taking Cialis. However, if you discuss your current condition, pre-existing illnesses and concerns with your doctor, whilst taking the prescribed dosage of Cialis in a sensible manner, you have little to worry about.

 

Do Statins Help Stop Thrombosis? Online Clinic Uk-Med.co.uk releases an article looking at the latest reports.

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 September 2012

Dr Kazem Rahimi, a consultant cardiologist and senior clinical researcher with the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, in the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford led the team of researchers reviewing the data. They reviewed reports and some unpublished papers, which enlisted more than 100,000 patient volunteers. The comparison between those taking statins and the ones not taking the medication was that 0.9% receiving the medication and 1% of those not taking statins experienced venous thrombosis. This took into account people taking differing dosages of medication and showed that there was very little variation whether they took it or not.

In the previous Jupiter trial, the outcome of the results published in 2009 used Crestor (Rosuvastatin) made by AstraZeneca plc a British/Swedish pharmaceutical company. They claimed that is reduced the risk of blood clots by 50%, this was in healthy adults, so it was suggested that it should be used as a preventive.

The number of people on whon the original study was based (17,800 Volunteers) was quite low, so possibly a larger group should have been studied.

During the original tests carried out on these 17,800 volunteers, some were administered Crestor and others placebos. In the two year review it was found that 34 of the statin takers and sixty within the placebo group had gone on to form a blood clot.

Dr Rahimi could not find evidence of this occurring. As a director of the British Heart Foundation and an expert in cardiovascular medicine, Professor Peter Weissberg said that ‘An earlier study suggested that one statin, Rosuvastatin, might reduce the risk of blood clots in deep veins and lungs, known as venous thromboembolism. However, findings in single studies can sometimes happen by chance. By pooling a large amount of data on several different types of statin, this analysis shows that any significant protection against blood clots is highly unlikely.’

Almost seven million high cholesterol sufferers in the UK take statins, which prevent certain enzymes found in the liver from forming fats that can clog arteries. This bad cholesterol causes a plaque to form in blood vessels and this can cause erectile dysfunction. As a good blood flow is a key to combatting ED, Viagra and Cialis are useful medications in helping with this problem as it relaxes the arteries.

A recent genetic link has been made between cancer and cholesterol by the New York, University of Rochester, by Dr Hucky Land, which means that a daily dose of statins could be a preventative against cancerous tumours developing. This medication could be as inexpensive as 40p a day to prescribe. Even though the newest review of statin benefit has been found in certain respects, not to be working as the study showed. With the long term use of statins proving that there are fewer strokes or heart attacks and adding cancer prevention to this equation, it can only be of good to the many millions of patients that take them on a regular basis.

Laboratory Sperm Creation Available Within Two Years: British Online Clinic Uk-Med.co.uk Releases a report that looks at the latest findings

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 12 October 2012

In her capacity as Director of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research at Stanford University in California, Dr Renee Reijo Pera is hoping to have viable human sperm in two years, to be followed within five years by human eggs.

The inability to conceive a baby can have many reasons which affect either the female or male or both, that are involved in creating an offspring. Where actual fertility is concerned there are stages throughout a woman and a mans life when their ability to conceive easily occurs. The younger you are when you attempt to have children, the better. With a lot of couples establishing their careers and leaving it till later to start a family, there is bound to be more couples that will require investigating, which leads to fertility treatment.

Worry involved with infertility can cause other side effects, such as erectile dysfunction and stress can be a key factor in ED. Viagra or Cialis are good treatments for this possibly temporary problem.

This research is highly controversial as it uses embryonic stem cells because they provide the best start. Stem cells are part of multicellular organisms that via mitosis can form any cell type. This makes them so versatile when used to grow cells for bone marrow, body organs, repairing nerves or actually any cell in the human body.

There has always been objections to this medical research as cells are harvested from embryos. Dr Reijo Pera obtains the stem cells from the extra eggs that are not needed after IVF treatments. IVF clinics in America make 1 to 1.5 million ova a year and of these, 500,000 are disposed of. Seemingly many are concerned over the 500 being used to enhanced medical procedures and the health of the overall population, instead of the yearly disposal of 500,000 eggs that could be used in lifesaving treatment.

With the ground breaking achievements made by Japanese scientists in making baby mice from sperm and eggs that were grow with stem cells, it has given the US team a boost for their studies to go to the next stage and create a human baby in this way. Being able to produce a viable fertilised egg to be implanted by this method would help so many childless couples. Also the implications as to extending the length of childbearing years of women could be of benefit for those postponing parenthood.

All this said there are factors of opposition to stem cells being used and should women be able to have a baby in later years. So who is going to be brave enough to allow general use of stem cells recovered from embryos and decide how old is too old for a woman to give birth.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab St. Catharines Introduces Program to Help Adults, Adolescents Stop Cocaine Addiction

St. Catharines, Canada (PRWEB) January 13, 2014

A St. Catharines alcohol and drug rehab center is introducing a program geared toward helping adults and adolescents stop their cocaine addiction through services available at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

Based on facts collected from the National Anti-Drug Strategy, Cocaine and crack cocaine are addictive. There is no antidote that can reverse cocaine’s effects – an overdose can be lethal. Physical signs of snorted cocaine and crack cocaine use may include a red, chapped and runny nose. Used regularly, snorted cocaine can cause a hole in the wall between the nostrils causing frequent nosebleeds. Psychological signs of regular use include poor school and job performance and increased preoccupation with buying and preparing the drug. Short-term adverse effects of cocaine and crack cocaine use include increased blood pressure, breathing difficulties, anxiety, paranoid thinking, hallucinations and more. Long-term effects include depression, mood swings, violent behaviour, difficulty sleeping, a loss in the sense of smell, a lack of interest in food, potential impotence and more.”

Getting adults and adolescents to follow an organized plan of healing and wholeness from the destructive nature of cocaine is part of what Drug Addiction Treatment Centers does each day. From morning to night, a structure is in place that includes detox (early on), counseling, therapy, physical activity and learning about healthy eating habits.

Drug rehabilitation allows adults and adolescents a chance to get clean from their drug of choice, whether it is cocaine, heroin, marijuana, or prescription drugs. A part of this process is detoxification, cleansing out the physical body filled with mind-altering substances. Drug detoxs main goal is to rid the body of chemical toxins.

Once this process takes place, then counseling and therapeutic methods can enter into play. More times than not, there are real-life issues that a person has used drugs to hide, repress or deny within themselves. Some issues might include physical, emotional, spiritual or mental abuse. Drug rehab allows clients time to discern and figure out what is their truth around these situations.

Counselors and therapists with many years of experience in the field of substance abuse treatment and addiction can help make the transition from addiction to recovery easier. These drug rehab staff members can rely on their personal and professional experiences with addiction to offer compassion and support to recovering individuals working to overcome their addictions.

Staff and clients are able to exchange stories of shared experiences, which will let recovering individuals know they are not alone in their journey. The relationships formed between recovering individuals and staff members of the St. Catharines drug rehab center provide a strong support network that offers strength and guidance during the recovery journey, throughout the transition to life outside of treatment and as recovering

individuals adjust to sobriety.

Help Yourself and Treat Prostate Enlargement & LUTS at Home with Dr. Allens Device Avoiding Nasty Side Effects of BPH Drugs, Recommends Fine Treatment


London, UK (PRWEB) January 21, 2014

Fine Treatment recommends Dr. Allens Device as a long-term independent treatment for enlarged prostate (BPH). Its use protects men from common health problems caused by treating this condition with BPH drugs. Having this treatment option available is especially important, highlights Fine Treatment, as a new hype promotes the combination of tamsulosin (-blocker) and dutaseride (5 reductase inhibitor) to be prescribed for life to help to ease lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).

According to the article Combination therapy may improve urinary tract symptoms in BPH, dated January 9, 2014, a study published in the British Journal of Urology, which had lasted for 48 months, says: a combination of an -blocker (tamsulosin) and 5 reductase inhibitor (dutaseride) was shown to be superior to monotherapy for improvement in lower urinary tract symptoms for those with moderate to severe benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

However, it is worth reminding of the outcomes of another large study discussed in The New York Times article, Common Drug for Prostrate Is Ineffective, Study Finds. It stated, The first direct comparison of two main drugs approved for treating an enlarged prostate gland, a common condition in older men, has shown that one is no better than a dummy pill or placebo. But the other relieves the urinary symptoms caused as the swollen gland constricts the urethra. Furthermore, it was shown men taking Proscar (5 reductase inhibitor) alone or in combination with Hytrin (a-blocker) experienced impotence and decreased sex drive more often than those in the other two groups. Dizziness was the most frequent side effect of Hytrin and was experienced by 79, or 26 percent, of the 305 men who took it in the study.

Sadly, men do suffer from the side effects of prostate drugs tremendously. Addressing this pressing issue in 2011, the FDA required the label of all 5-alpha reductase drugs, including Propecia, to carry the warning about the increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer, while the latest lawsuit case against Avodart manufacturer, Case No. D193-889, filed on February 4, 2013 in Jefferson County District Court, raises the profile of the matter.

In contrast to medications, Dr. Allens therapeutic device improves the condition of the prostate gland naturally by enhancing blood circulation at the capillary level. No magnets or batteries are involved. This video gives more details about the enlarged prostate treatment with Dr Allens Device for Prostate Care: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5xidswhxJM.

Its not right to subject a man with enlarged prostate to taking BPH drugs for the rest of his life, comments Dr. Simon Allen. In most cases, the Thermobalancing therapy will work well. The users of Dr. Allens Device do achieve a notable lower urinary tract symptoms relief naturally as they terminate and ultimately reverse BPH.

Dr. Simon Allen, MD, PhD, Academician, member of the ATA, is a highly experienced medical professional. His specialty is in internal medicine.

Nighttime - soap opera

Name: Audrey
Location: Curitiba, Brazil

                Carrossel is a mexican soap opera I watched (dubbed in Portuguese) when I was a kid in 1991 and that has been rewritten and retaped (with Brazilian actors now) by a Brazilian TV channel since last year. Now my daugther watches it every night and she loves it. It is about a loving teacher (professora Helena) that goes way beyond the classroom to teach good virtues to her kids in the most different, dramatic, fiction filled ways. Don't tell anyone but we cried when professora Helena left the school for a better paying job. Of course she returned to her old job about 10 chapters later...
                It really can be cute and I must admit I have learned to enjoy wathcing it again. It is on every night at 8:30 pm and she (we) can´t miss it. So, like every good Brazilian, our nighttimes include soap opera watching. But at least this is a 'good', decent one.
