When a powerful earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday, many of those injured by collapsed buildings lay in the streets pleading for help. Even for those with open fractures and head injuries, there was little else they could do.

Haiti is not prepared to handle disaster.

By every measure, it’s the poorest country in the Western hemisphere and it has a health care system to match.

There have been improvements in overall life expectancy and infant mortality, and vaccination programs have helped largely eradicate some diseases like polio, but the country remains desperate for affordable health services. What few services existed declined in the last two decades because of political instability.

The country spends less than $85 per person on health care every year, and much of what is actually delivered is done by a patchwork of agencies from around the world.

Haiti has a public health crisis, according to Mdecins Sans Frontires (MSF)/Doctors Without Borders, one of several foreign medical aid groups that operate free emergency health services in the country. MSF’s own clinics are often overwhelmed by people who can’t afford to pay for private care. Public hospitals and clinics are plagued by management problems and shortages of medications, says the organization.

“The reality of what we are seeing is severe traumas, head wounds, crushed limbs, severe problems that cannot be dealt with with the level of medical care we currently have available with no infrastructure really to support it,” said Paul McPhun, operations manager for the group’s Canadian section. The country’s health indicators are grim. The average life expectancy is about 52, and Haiti has the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the region.

More than 138,000 children under five die of preventable diseases every year, and women routinely die terrible deaths in childbirth because they live too far away from medical help, in rural areas without services or simply can’t afford to pay for services.

UNICEF says that out of every 100,000 live births, 670 women died of pregnancy-related causes in 2006. That’s five times the Latin American average.

Diarrhea, respiratory infections, malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS are leading causes of death. There is poor sanitation and increasing malnutrition, brought on by growing poverty.

In rural areas, only 14 per cent of residents have adequate sanitation, and most rural Haitians lack even basic health care services.

For many years, access to sports supplements in Thailand has been very limited and expensive. The cost alone has been prohibitive for the average Thai to gain access to quality supplements. Fortunately today, there is a wide variety of imported sports supplements such as whey protein available in Thailand at prices similar to that in Europe and Australia.

The registration process for food products in Thailand is notoriously complicated and expensive. For example, a whey protein product needs a separate registration for every size and flavor of essentially the same product. The entire process to register one product can end up costing several thousand dollars and there is no guarantee that the product will even be accepted. Another issue lies with supplement ingredients. The English ingredient needs to be checked against an approved ingredient list which is in Thai. Even though the ingredient exists, if its not in the Thai approved ingredient list chances are the product will be rejected. Fortunately today, the Thai FDA appears to be relaxing their registration process for sports supplements.

Companies such as Dymatize Nutrition and Optimum Nutrition now have official distributors in Thailand and their products are officially registered with the Thai FDA. Prior to this, sports supplements were often smuggled into the country and sold illegally usually at very high prices.

Musashi, an Australian supplement company, has been trading in Thailand for several years and had essentially cornered the market for supplements such as whey protein. Because of this, the company was able to charge extortionate prices giving them a bad reputation in Thailand.

Many new sports supplement retailers have emerged in the past year in Thailand making the market competitive. One such retailer, Phuket Health Shop, now has over 300 imported sports supplements in stock making them one of largest retailers of supplements in Thailand. Phuket Health Shop carries the worlds most popular brands of whey protein and sports supplements such as Dymatize, Optimum Nutrition, BSN, Gaspari, USP Labs, AST, and CytoSport. As a high volume retailer, Phuket Health Shop offers extremely low prices and provides nationwide delivery of its products.

The sports supplement market in Thailand is set to explode. Thais are showing an increased interest in bodybuilding and sports such as mixed martial arts where events are often sponsored by supplement companies. Top quality whey protein can now be purchased at an average serving cost similar to that of a regular meal. Professional bodybuilders have become celebrities in Thailand and many young Thais idolize them. These are just a few of the many reasons this emerging industry is set for amazing growth.

Does meditation work… or is it all just a scam, fraud and foolish way to tap into your inner “Zen”? Are you searching for a way to be more grounded, centered, philosophically “freer” or simply more connected to yourself and those around you? If you have… there is no question you’ve at least contemplated the art and science of meditation.

As without… so within.

I know, I know. Sounds silly to quote some sort of estoric cliche after such a a powerful promise in the article title. But I did it anyway. Want to know why? Because when the Buddha said this so many centuries ago, it was as true then, as it is today. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner. Your actions are driven by your thoughts. The serenity you seek is NOT “out there”…..it’s actually “in here”..:-) And once you find it, the bubbling, bursting and brimming external world becomes as soothing, and silent as the world within.

That is the amazing discovery in human consciousness….and it’s available to ANYONE who chooses to look for it. (because it’s NOT far..:-) As a matter of fact, some would argue that peace, serenity and PERFECTION are your natural condition. Mine too. That stress and anger and anxiety are manufactured emotions that are truly not necessary, or important….or even, depending on what you believe, even really “there” at all.

Meditation, is the perfect state that brings EVERYTHING back into balance. It’s the staring into the void of emptiness that becomes bountiful (and beautiful) rather than lonely and alone. Once you learn to quiet your mind, and to CONCENTRATE on everything and nothing at all, the world sings an entirely different song. And to me, that’s an idea worth spreading!

(and there is NOTHING that will give you the freedom of thought, mind and spirit than learning there is FAR more to your life than meets the eye!)

Simply START by opening your mind, spirit [] & enhanced AWARENESS and ride the supernatural surfboard into the wild, wacky and wonderful world of the unknown..:-) It WILL rock Your WORLD…I promise..;-)

Laughter Therapy and Weight Loss

According to scientific researches, 15 minutes of laughter every day can burn up to 30-40 calories. The more force you put while laughing, the more calories you are able to lose. Laughter has immense ability to decrease the norepinephrin and cortisol levels that contribute to weight gain. It is one of the best aerobic exercises that can unwind the entire body, thereby decreasing the stress levels of hormones, which also cause weight gain.

If you wish to lose certain pounds, laughter therapy is one of the most natural solutions for you. Its results may not be instantaneous but if you follow the therapy regularly, you can find significant results in your body. Besides basic regular exercises for reducing calories, you can include laughter therapy as a powerful exercise of shedding extra weight. When you bring humor as a regular exercise, the goal that you set to lose weight will be easier and more enjoyable. Laughing for around 10 to 15 minutes each day can uplift your spirits to see life from an optimistic perspective. A tremendous slimming effect can be achieved if your mood is elevated during the laughter therapy.

Therefore, laugh for your own well-being. Even when you are not attending a laughter session, you can find ways to laugh with your friends, family members and so on. Laughter not only helps you lose good amount of calories but also gives you confidence to deal with life in a more positive way.

How to Choose an Abortion Clinic in NYC

Making a decision whether or not to have an abortion is a difficult decision for any woman or couple. When this difficult decision is made, it is very important to locate the best of the abortion clinics in NYC. There are different factors to determine when selecting from abortion clinics in NYC.

Certification

Possibly the most important aspect to look into are the certifications of the different abortion clinics in NYC. It is very important to know the doctor is fully licensed inside the state of New York, as permanent internal damage may occur, should the operation be performed in haste or by an inexperienced individual. The abortion clinic should have the information readily available at any request. If not, it is best to continue the search in order to make sure the very best facility is selected.

Health Insurance

Before anyone looks at an abortion clinic, it is important for them to check with their insurance provider to see if the abortion is covered. Some insurance companies do cover this, although it may require a specific reason, such as the health of the mother or other health side effects. If the insurance company does cover it, it is important to check with the different abortion clinics in NYC to see if the facilities accept health insurance coverage. This is the same as any other medical service, as some only stick with certain HMOs and insurance providers.

Comfort

Once the expectant individual has located different abortion clinics in NYC that have the appropriate certifications and, if possible, healthcare coverage. From there, it is all about the comfort level of the individual and this is why they need to have a comfortable location to have the procedure performed at. The location can make it much easier to undergo the abortion. In order to ease the patient’s state of mind, ideally the location is quiet and the offices themselves are comfortable and welcoming.

This isn’t a choice that is made lightly, but if abortion is chosen as the final decision, the women or couple must locate an appropriate facility for the procedure. There are different aspects of a facility to look for, ranging from certifications to the acceptance of insurance and how comfortable the women is in the building. All of this is there to help the pregnant women and give her piece of mind.

Now that youve achieved healthy weight loss dont be sucked in to gaining back the pounds; if you are throwing a party in your home take the time to plan delicious food that is healthier than those normally found at such soirees.

So treat yourself to a few items on the table, the important thing is that you know when to stop.

4.Remember to Check Why Youre Eating

Its important to check that youre not eating because you are bored or stressed. If youve had a bad day, dont reach for the biscuit tin, go for a walk instead or meet a friend for a chat. You may not feel like exercising at the time but you will feel so much better afterwards.

5.Plan Your Meals

By making a healthy breakfast each morning, packing a healthy lunch for work and having a planned healthy meal each evening, you will minimise the potential for snacking on junk food. Make sure that you bring plenty of fruit, nuts and seeds for snacking on in work. If you know youre going to be home late some evenings make a healthy meal the day before and pop it in the oven when you get home from work.

If you follow all of the above easy tips you will be on track to maintain your amazing new figure, good luck!

Muscle Building Supplements for Seniors

Very few muscle building supplements are developed with seniors in mind. Bodybuilding sites focus on the young and overly muscled. Experts also promote supplements as if they are effective regardless of age. The often ignored issue is the age-related limitations on supplements.

This issue also seems to be the case with the increasingly popular use of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) as muscle building supplements. However, a key metabolite of leucine, which is one of the BCAAs, is turning out to be an exception. This metabolite, beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) does, indeed, have a comparable effect for building muscle mass in older vs. younger adults.

Key Research on HMB

The following key study is one of the very few that entail senior subjects. It addresses the effects of HMB in 70-year old adults. Here are the reference details of the study:

Vukovich MD, Stubbs NB, Bohlken RM. Body composition in 70-year-old adults responds to dietary beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate similarly to that of young adults. J Nutr. 2001 Jul;131(7):2049-52.

Fifteen men and sixteen women, average age 70 years, were randomly assigned in a double-blind study to receive either capsules containing a placebo or HMB at 3 grams per day for 8 weeks. At the end of 8 weeks, HMB supplementation tended to increase fat-free mass gain, increased the percentage of body fat loss. CT scans also indicated a greater decrease in the percentage of body fat with HMB supplementation.

The authors concluded that changes in body composition can be accomplished in 70-y-old adults participating in a strength training program, as previously demonstrated in young adults, when HMB is supplemented daily.

Key Age Comparison for Senior Fitness

The authors of this study provided a comparison that is often missing in published studies. It is one thing to say that results have been comparable across several studies. However, these authors provided an analysis of several other studies and showed that results with 70-year-old adults were comparable to studies of subjects in their 20s.

All of the studies in this comparison showed a net weekly increase in percent Fat Free Mass with HMB supplements. The current study shows that 70-year olds might even expect a little bit better than average increase in comparison with the 20-somethings.

That, dear readers, is a rarity regarding aging. And quite a pleasant one for me as I approach that milestone in the next few years.
