My sister is living abroad for a year working in the healthcare industry. She calls me all the time. We email, video chat and stay in touch about pretty much everything. I was really fascinated about all the interesting products she was showing me that are available in stores where she is at. She is a civilian contractor, and tells me how she has to dress when not at her work site. Out in public she wears a head covering to not be offensive to local customs. She showed me a product she bought called Crystal X. No, it has no association to the same word used here in the States. The product is cylindrical and is like stone. You will never guess what it is used for. I could not guess when my sister showed me. When she told me it was for yeast infections, I could not even wrap my head around that. Continue reading
I have been stretching for close to an hour right now and my back still feels pretty awful. It is like I just can’t do anything to make it feel better, and it is starting to be very frustrating to me. I wish the pain would go away and never come back. Who knows, maybe it will. But I want to go see a chiropractor in Santa Rosa to have a look at my back and maybe figure out why I am in so much pain. I also want to get some treatment on my back, of course, because it does not do me a lot of good to find out what is wrong with my back, if nothing is done to fix it and make it feel better.
I have never been before, but apparently I have a few friends who have and they gave me a number to call. Apparently they all go to this same chiropractor. Continue reading
When my husband was riding his bicycle in the past, he was always careful to wear protective gear, especially a bike helmet. He was always really good about obeying traffic signals and not doing things that would upset vehicle drivers on the road, too. But when he was hit by an angry driver who used their car as a weapon of anger against my husband, everything changed for us. My hubby has now been going to Glendale physical therapy appointments for the past two months in the hopes that he will one day have the ability to stand and walk as normal.
The man who hit my husband does not like cyclists. He purposely hit my husband because he thought he was riding too slowly. Many witnesses saw it happen. Continue reading

Cholesterol levels are associated with heart disease. To better assess your risk of heart disease, it is important to know not only your total cholesterol, but also your HDL. Total cholesterol is made up of HDL (high density lipoprotein), LDL (low density lipoprotein) and VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein). LDL is bad. HDL is good. The LDL cholesterol sticks to your walls of your blood vessels and may lead to obstruction. VLDL is the precursor of LDL. HDL goes around in the blood, collects the bad cholesterol and it carries to the liver where it is down. It is desirable to maintain the levels of total cholesterol below 200mg/dl. Values above 240 mg / dl are considered significantly elevated. If you know your LDL value, it is desirable to have this type of cholesterol below 130 mg / dl. LDL values above 160 are considered significantly elevated. Because HDL is good, you want this high level. Values below 35 mg / dl are indicative of high risk of heart disease. It is more desirable to have HDL levels near 50 mg / dl or more. HDL is a good indicator
A career in medical coding can be very rewarding and satisfying. Students who undertake training in the field have an excellent chance of getting regular employment when they are qualified.

With all of the slang names, scientific terms, and regular terms for the myriad of drugs available to the population on the black market, mephedrone is a name that often lacks popularity in the world of heroin, cocaine and marijuana abuse. So what is mephedrone and what does it do? Is it dangerous?
Mephedrone belongs to the cathinone family, a group of drugs that are closely related to amphetamines, including meth, ecstasy and speed. It is a powerful stimulant, and although not much is known about the long term effects from abuse, Mephedrone often produces immediate effects of euphoria, alertness and feelings of affection for the people around. On the downside, mephedrone, also known as ‘meow,’ can produce sensations of paranoia, anxiety and can over-stimulate the heart, blood circulation, and the nervous system of the body.
Mephedrone can be found as a powdery white, off-white or yellowish substance, closely resembling cocaine. Because of the similarity in appearance between mephedrone, cocaine, meth, and heroin, it can be hard to tell if mephedrone is exactly what it really is; in other words, it can sometimes be mistaken for another drug. Even more difficult to be sure of, is the chemical composition of the
