Medical Specialists Pharmacy explore the catastrophic health risks of alcohol abuse


Bury, Lancashire (PRWEB UK) 1 August 2014

Its been a long, stressful day at the office, and for many people this means one thing having a drink to unwind. Maybe a few pints at the pub with work mates is appealing after a gruelling day, or perhaps a few glasses of wine in the evening each night with a meal is how others choose to relax.

One or two drinks each evening may seem innocent enough and simply a customary part of ones evening. After all, there is no harm in kicking back with a few beers each night after work right? Wrong

There are multiple hidden dangers of long-term alcohol consumption, and what seems like a few harmless drinks every night is actually disastrous for the body both inside and out.

Everybody knows about the staggering number calories contained in most alcoholic drinks. Simply put, those who consume alcohol are consuming empty calories with no nutritional value.

It may be shocking to learn that just a single glass of wine contains around the same number of calories contained in four cookies, and a pint of lager is roughly as calorie-laden as a slice of pizza.

For the heavier drinkers, it will be frightening to learn that the NHS Livewell websites alcohol page states that just drinking five pints of lager each week can tally up to 44,200kcal over the course of a year or eating about 221 doughnuts. This may go some way to explaining Homer Simpsons rotund belly. After all, the Springfield native has a penchant for both beer and doughnuts!

It is suddenly easier to understand the role alcohol plays in the increasingly problematic UK obesity crisis and why the health problems linked to being overweight or obese are costing the NHS over

Dr. Joel Block Reports How New Study Reveals That Erectile Dysfunction Can Be Deadly

Long Island, New York (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

Dr. Joel Block, former supervisor of a New York hospital-based Sexuality Center and creator of a mens sexual health program, known as Mind over ED, is now reporting on new findings in the area of Erectile Dysfunction.

His report this week is about a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. In this study, titled “Depressed Men with ED at Risk for Cardiovascular Problems”, researchers found that the presence of depressive symptoms in men with ED constitutes a risk factor for a major cardiovascular event. (http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/PressRelease/pressReleaseId-78237.html)

Erectile dysfunction and depressive mood are often associated, and both are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and death. To investigate clinical correlates further, researchers led by Elisa Bandini of the University of Florence studied approximately 2,000 male patients in a clinic for sexual dysfunction using a structured interview while also scoring for depressive symptoms.

Dr. Block, reviewing the report, states that depression in itself, apart from other factors, can be a cardiovascular risk. In fact, the researchers found that even the use of antidepressant medications did not alter the relationship between severe depressive symptoms and adverse cardiovascular events.

The take away is clear: men with ED often are either depressed as a result, or perhaps their depression is a factor, that is interfering with their erectile function. In either case, treatments for erectile function are not optional if cardiovascular health is to be protected.

Further, since many men tend to avoid talking about their erectile dysfunction, and instead avoid being sexual, there is a role for the woman in his life. Considering that erectile dysfunction is often associated with depression, and untreated depression is a cardiovascular risk, there is a pressing basis for a woman to encourage her partner to seek psychological help; as both partners work together to discover how to fix ED.

For men with ED, depression is quite common; either as a result of their erectile dysfunction or as one of the symptoms of ED. Now, according to this new study, the link between depression and cardiovascular problems virtually demands that treatments for overcoming ED be sought by these men, and those who love them.

Joel D. Block, Ph.D., is an award-winning psychologist, practicing couple therapy and sex therapy on Long Island, New York. Board Certified in Couple Therapy by the American Board of Professional Psychology, Dr. Block is a senior psychologist on the staff of the North Shore – Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and an Assistant Clinical Professor (Psychology/Psychiatry) at the Hofstra North Shore – LIJ Medical School. Dr. Block is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (Couple and Family Psychology), and for twenty years was the training supervisor of the Sexuality Center at Long Island – Jewish Medical Center. Dr. Block is the author of over 20 books on how to fix ED and, his specialty, Love and Sex. For more information visit http://www.MindoverED.com.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 01, 2014

Building on the success of the 2014 Sleep & Wellness conference, the American Sleep and Breathing Academy (ASBA) has officially announced its 2015 Sleep & Wellness conference: A Conference for Healthcare Professionals. The event will be taking place at the DoubleTree Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona on April 10th and 11th. This years event promises to be yet another educational and enjoyable experience delivered by the ASBA.

In recent years, Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA) has worked closely with the ASBA to offer something different than the common sleep conference. Together with PPHA, the ASBA is the only academy able to deliver big name former NFL players to speak on their experiences dealing with the life-altering effects of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). With the 2015 Sleep & Wellness conference just over seven months away, PPHA has already confirmed several speakers that will be presenting at this years conference. Hall of Fame defensive back Mike Haynes, two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Roy Green, Super Bowl Champion offensive lineman Derek Kennard and former Cardinal tight end Mark Walczak are among the lineup to present this year. The ASBA has proven to be a great partner for Pro Player Health Alliance; PPHA President David Gergen, is set to be on the cover of the fall edition of the Sleep & Wellness magazine offered by the academy.

Taking a brief look back on the 2014 conference, speakers like William Dement, MD and Emmanuel Mignot MD, PhD brought sleep medicine star power to the American Sleep & Breathing Academy. There is no doubt the ASBA will have yet another impressive speaker line-up in store for 2015. In addition to the members of PPHA that will be presenting, the academy is pleased to announce that Dr. John Tucker, lead lecturer for Henry Scheins Sleep Complete program, will be presenting at this years conference. Dr. Tucker is considered by many to be one of the nations foremost authorities in dental sleep medicine. You will not want to miss Dr. Tuckers presentation, his ability to keep the audience engaged and command the room is top-notch, says David Gergen, Executive Director of the ASBA Dental Division. Another newcomer to the ASBA this year will be Republican nominee for the Attorney General seat of Arizona, Mark Brnovich. Mr. Brnovich will be speaking about the importance of a good nights sleep and the direct correlation to day time performance and functionality. As a former Federal and State prosecutor, Mr. Brnovich is well aware that sleep is a vital ingredient to success in your professional life. Returning to the 2015 conference, will be former ASBA contributor Congressman Marty Russo. People are still talking about the presentation he delivered last year that was eloquently delivered to a standing-room only crowd of over 400 medical and dental professionals from around the country.

I don't really believe that having regrets is helpful. I'm more of a peacemaker than a pot-stirrer. I only regret not addressing the issue when it could have been dealth with. The impact of not speaking up has impacted relationships and will probably continue to do so.
Best of luck, it's been lots of fun. I've loved having an opportunity to share my photos and thoughts. -AJHT

Theme - just want you to know....

I think we probably all have those moments when we wish we could have said.....(fill in the blank) to someone before we didn't see them again. Before we left that event. Before we parted. Before it ended....

If you could say it today - what would you say? 
" I just want you to know...." 
That's our theme this week as wrap up our project for the year. It's been a great 8 months. Life is calling us to other endeavors and we are going to take the journey and see where it leads us!
BUT not before say, "I just want you to know...."

What's In My Purse...no, really, what's in there?

Name: Annette
Location: Kuwait

Clockwise, from left: my favorite Fossil purse; a pile of receipts from the grocery store; underpants, shorts and wipes for my recently potty-trained son; a ribbon of unknown origin; Dramamine; my husband's necktie, my sunglasses and a wiper thing; a pouch with personal items; lipsticks; chapsticks; eyedrops (it gets dusty here); a pen that I can NEVER find when I need; a handful of photos of family; a tiny green truck; my phone (ok, that's just the case, I used the phone to take this photo); a bundle of business cards from the doctor's office, my husband's office and my eldest son's school; the brown and purple wallet that I don't really love but haven't gotten around to replacing; several photo id cards (civil identity card, Kuwait driver's license, Idaho Driver's license (with an AWESOME picture), private medical insurance card, government medical insurance card);  Kuwaiti fils (the coins) and dinars (the notes). In the center you can see two sets of keys with my Ron Weasley Lego keychain (Weasley is our king!); a small piece of beach glass for my collection; a black bat ring from Halloween and a pink plastic ring from my daughter's bling collection; an inordinate amount of sanitzing hand wipes and hand sanitizer; two packs of TERRIBLE chewing gum that a cashier recently gave me as change when he didn't have any small coins; and a string of prize coupons from a local fun place and the cards from the same.
Not pictured: several handfuls of sand and crumbs, a wad of chewing gum in a piece of tissue, twenty-thousand smaller receipts, twenty-two thousand identity cards for the children and tissue (because no matter how many packs of tissue I put in, there is never any in my purse when my kids have got drippy noses.)

 NAME:  TRINITY
LOCATION:  MS GULF COAST

My bag is pretty much the family's, in that at least one of them is always asking:  "Hey, could you stick this in your purse?" It's normal to find my husband's phone, or keys, or the kids' favorite toys or lip gloss, or a dozen other items.

Today, I give you all a rare glimpse into said purse.  I know, exciting stuff I'm sure!  We have the following items:  wallet, bracelet 
{that I wore to work last Thursday}, Bath & Body Works Lotion, bobby pins, kids' nail polishes, BC Powder {it works!}, and more.  Plus, you may have noticed my new craft punch {arrow} or that I have a 10% off coupon for one of my favorite shops {Mindy Mae's Market}.  I even have a Littlest Pet Shop brochure, highlighted with all the pets my oldest would like {Wasn't that sweet of her....to make sure I knew, lol}  

So.....that's it for my purse.  What's in YOURS?

Theme - what's in my purse

Oh this is a fun one! As women we tend to carry purses. Some large some small. Sometimes they are jammed full of crazy stuff! And sometimes we just have a few items. We are going to spill the contents of our purses this week. It will be fun to see what they "reveal" about our day to day lives.


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.
