CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Prompted by new information on the use of psychotropic drugs to treat childhood difficulties in school, the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), is hosting a seminar on ADHD with Child Education Specialist, Sharon Hillestad.

During the seminar Ms. Hillestad will cover the tests used to diagnose ADHD, alternative treatment options, the signs of a child who isn’t doing well in school and how all of this can be addressed with healthy, safe methods.

Currently there are approximately 1.8 million children between the ages of 12-17 in the United States who are taking prescription psychotropic drugs, largely to treat difficulties with study.

One of the common psychostimulants used to treat ADHD, methylphenidate is a Schedule II drug, meaning the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has classified it as having a high potential for abuse. Additionally, the DEA warns that methylphenidate produces many of the same effects as cocaine. Psychotic episodes and severe psychological addiction have all been associated with methylphenidate abuse. The side effects for Ritalin (methylphenidate hcl), include nervousness, agitation, and anxiety as the top 3 listed effects, as well as psychosis. [1] [2]

Glen Alex to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For most people who want to look like a thin or buff celebrity they will tend to emulate their diet and lifestyle hoping to capture their same body type and image. When one fad diet doesn’t work they try another and another, generally to no avail. What is the ideal way to become our healthiest, most authentic selves where we can finally accomplish our best selves inside and out?

Glen is a Speaker, Health & Wellness Coach, Clinical Social Worker, and Author of “Living in Total Health.”

“Living in Total Health” is about each individual’s unique path to their optimal level of health,” says Glen. “Everyone should take into account their own personal situation including lifestyle, finances, needs, and recognize what works the best for them on an emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical level. People tend to focus way too much on diet and exercise but the fact is we are comprised of much more than our size and metabolism Total Health integrates the whole person.”

Glen’s straight forward, no nonsense approach encourages clients to authentically take a new perspective on connecting to their core rather than their ego. She affirms how every choice has a positive, negative, or neutral outcome. For instance if a person has diabetes in their family and that person chooses to consume excess sugar, then their choices are leading them to a potentially negative consequence—diabetes and kidney disease for examples. Through her expert coaching, Glen methodically and skillfully seeks out her client’s motivations and goals then provides much needed information, guidance, and clarity.

“When a person is “aware” of what they are doing, thinking and feeling then they are better able to accept the consequences,” says Glen. “Making conscious choices places you in a more powerful position than making them “blindly.”

Glen’s insightful message includes how people must be sincerely open to new ideas and genuinely accept responsible for their own decisions.

“When people aren’t proactive in their lives they leave it up to chance and then get upset when things don’t work out in their favor,” says Glen. “Living in total health requires a level of awareness that provides the learning opportunities for overall improvement.”

“When people simply focus on diet and exercise ignoring those other components of who they are they are limiting themselves. By living in total health we become aware of the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual parts of how we live and not just what our bodies look like”

According to Glen, people are not aware of who they are because they are living from their ego and not their core.

“Everything we need is within and connecting with our personal truth provides the insights that lead to total health and well-being.” says Glen. “Since health is more than just physical, our mental, emotional, and spiritual selves must unequivocally be addressed in any health program. When we are linked with our core the truth of who we really are has a powerful peaceful flow that helps us evolve and progress. Live consciously and you will be find joy and be connected to your true selves.”

CUTV news will feature Glen Alex in an interview with Doug Llewelyn Wednesday September 19th at 10 a.m. EST.

New Anti-aging Serum Hailed as Skin Care Miracle

Molecular Biologist’s Discovery Proven to Reverse the Aging Process – RevolutionaryTAM-818 molecule is rocking the multi-billion-dollar anti-aging industry.

I have been involved extensively in the skin care industry for over twenty years and I can say, without a doubt, that One Truth 818 is the closest thing to a true miracle that I have ever seen—ever.”

— Sherry Moxley Seaman

RENO, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Internationally-acclaimed molecular biologist Dr. Bill Andrews, Ph.D.—founder of Sierra Sciences in Reno, Nevada—recently introduced the TAM-818 molecule, his latest invention that is rocking the multi-billion-dollar worldwide anti-aging industry. It has been proven in extensive laboratory testing to significantly slow down and even reverse the shortening of our telomeres, the caps on the end of our chromosomes that shorten as we age.

Introducing One Truth 818

One Truth 818 anti-aging skin serum is formulated in New Zealand using the TAM-818 molecule as its active ingredient. Clinical trials on 100 volunteers at the renowned Abich Scientific Laboratories in Italy showed the most dramatic improvements in skin texture, firmness and elasticity ever discovered by the scientists who have tested many hundreds of other skin products.

That clinical testing was backed up by a series of tests on volunteers in New Zealand over a period of two months. Just like the Abich Labs tests in Italy, the New Zealand trials produced remarkable results. Abich Labs also tested One Truth serum for toxicity and adverse reactions. It found One Truth 818 produced zero adverse reactions.

More about TELOMERES

There is one primary reason why One Truth 818 anti-aging serum is so effective at real anti-aging. It all comes down to telomeres, the ‘caps’ on the end of our chromosomes. A telomere is like the little plastic tips on the end of a shoelace. As our cells divide, our telomeres get shorter and shorter. Eventually, our chromosomes can no longer replicate themselves. And we die. However, the human body can produce an enzyme called Telomerase, the miraculous enzyme that can slow down and even completely stop the shortening of our telomeres. But it needs help to be activated. That’s where TAM-818 comes in. TAM-818 is the strongest Telomerase-Inducing Molecule so far discovered by science. And One Truth 818 is the only skin serum in the world to contain TAM-818.

Precision medicine: Cap Digital and Medicen Team up with Oncodesign, Servier and Intersystems on Hu-PreciMED Project

Backed by 2 clusters and 45 innovative companies, the project will gear the French precision medicine industry toward new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches

The Hu-PreciMED project has taken shape thanks to the Medicen and Cap Digital clusters, which are deeply rooted in the French technology ecosystem”

— Philippe Genne, CEO of Oncodesign and VP of the Medicen SME body

PARIS, FRANCE, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Medicen Paris Region and Cap Digital, two competitiveness clusters from the Greater Paris region, today announce that they are rallying their members to support the Hu-PreciMED project (Human Precision MEDicine) in order to structure the precision medicine industry in France. The project was jointly launched by Oncodesign, Servier and Intersystems. With more than 45 innovative digital and medical companies already participating, Hu-PreciMED aims to bring together all public and private players working in the field of precision medicine and connect them efficiently to medical data from patients. This is important in order to improve available therapeutic and diagnostic tools, as well as to develop new predictive and preventive medical approaches; all the while building on the latest progress in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

Precision medicine relies on the analysis of molecular and genetic characteristics to allow individualized or personalized treatment and monitoring of patients. It is a booming global market, expected to reach $96 billion by 2024 . This area of research is seen as key for the pharmaceutical industry to develop new therapeutic solutions and for patient care. Other criteria for organizations involved in this flourishing market include anticipating scientific, technological, regulatory, economic, ethical and digital developments. The precision medicine industry also requires support for patient data generation and easy access to this data.

The project consists of three main areas, each led by one of the three coordinators. Intersystems will focus on "target resolution", using patient data to identify subgroups in order to adapt treatments or discover new therapeutic targets. Servier will take care of "investigating new molecules", new therapeutic targets making it possible to identify biomarkers and to create and produce new compounds. Oncodesign will lead the third area with preclinical and clinical development of new drugs associated with biomarkers. To accomplish this project, two digital platforms will be set up, one for the integration of multi-source data and the other for data analysis.

The 45 public and private organizations already working on the project include the Paris Hospitals (AP-HP), the Transimmunom and Inflamex Laboratories of Excellence (LabEx), the Lille University Hospital and the Frédéric-Joliot Institute for Life Sciences – CEA.

While all therapeutic areas will be addressed, the pilot phase will focus on immuno-inflammatory diseases, which affect 5-7 per cent of the Western population and for which cohorts of referenced patients already exist or can be generated. The goal will be to identify the most relevant targets and to provide guidance for new drug development.

The project has a total of four phases and will run until 2023. The first phase runs until January 2019 and will focus on the design and development of the project. Between 2019 and 2020, the coordinators plan to develop and organize the industrial sector, before moving to a consolidation phase between 2020 and 2023, with more emphasis on business development. The final phase will run in 2022 and 2023, aimed at widening the range of addressed pathologies as well as geographical reach through international partnerships. The project was initially funded by the three industrial coordinators. Plans for further funding will aim primarily at the European level.

"The Hu-PreciMED project has taken shape thanks to the Medicen and Cap Digital clusters, which are deeply rooted in the French technology ecosystem, and have served as neutral and trustworthy third parties. They will continue to have a pivotal role in coordinating the collaborations and giving the project members access to their networks and their work methodology," said Philippe Genne, CEO of Oncodesign and vice president of the Medicen SME body, speaking on behalf of the three companies driving the project. "The call for interest was initiated last July, following the preview of the "Health Data Hub" project launched by French Health Minister Agnès Buzyn in June 2018. It showed that French organizations from this sector are very interested in this approach. By joining forces, we will be able to reach a critical mass and rely on French scientific excellence to shine internationally."

Will the Internet of Things Change the Future of the Healthcare Industry?

Technology and Healthcare Provider

Despite adoption of electronic healthcare records, consumers still finds it difficult to transfer their medical records to a new healthcare provider. Read more!

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the 30th annual Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo gets underway here in Austin, Texas, we take a look at the intersection of technology and healthcare to ask some tough questions: Are digital health solutions reaching their full potential? Is virtual reality in healthcare just hype? Will the Internet of Things (IoT) advance the delivery of quality care?

In an era when the Internet is upending industries, from hotel accommodations to grocery sales and transportation services, many healthcare industry analysts and entrepreneurs have been championing a similar revolution in digital healthcare.

Let’s take a survey of the progress that’s been made in advancing technology and healthcare since the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010.

ARE MORE STREAMLINED IT APPS FOR HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS AND PAYERS COMING?

Whether you are a supporter or detractor of the ACA legislation, some of its lesser-known provisions (lesser-known outside the healthcare world that is) have tried to steer the big ship of healthcare away from the traditional “fee for service” model by offering healthcare providers new financial incentives (such as those offered by Accountable Care Organizations, known as ACOs) to focus on the quality of patient outcomes. (There have also been major reimbursement penalties for obvious care lapses, such as re-admitting patients within a few days after a hospital discharge.)

The ACA has also incented providers (by tweaking reimbursement rates) to adopt electronic healthcare record (EHR) systems — as long as they can provide a paper trail demonstrating what is known as “meaningful use.” This comes at a time when new coding standards for categorizing treatments, known as ICD-10, have been rolled out — much to the delight of “big data” evidence-based medical researchers but to the chagrin of care providers who have had to scramble to train personnel to learn the new coding procedures.

From a digital health perspective, these changes have been a golden opportunity for EHR software vendors (particularly for Minneapolis-based EPIC, the 800-pound gorilla of EHR systems), but those hoping that electronic healthcare records would be a springboard for consumer convenience and choice have generally been disappointed.

Despite widespread adoption of electronic healthcare records, the average consumer still finds it difficult to transfer their medical records to a new healthcare provider. While regional Healthcare Information Exchanges (HIEs) try to badger the healthcare systems to participate in record sharing, they’re often reluctant to let go of their captive markets. Interoperability is also a low priority for many EHR vendors as well (and from their perspective, why not?) — many of them use lowest-common-denominator methods, e.g. dumb data “screen scrapes,” to transmit records between their systems and those of their competitors.

Given all this complexity, it’s been difficult for entrepreneurs to enter the healthcare market and create apps that are the “UBER of healthcare.” And this is before talking about the Federal government’s stringent patient privacy regulations, collectively known as HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). HIPAA has been a final nail in the coffin for many digital health entrepreneurs contemplating entering the healthcare market, as the penalties for data breaches are quite onerous. (Consequently, as we’ll see below, most consumer product companies, such as Apple and FitBit, have focused their efforts on fitness apps, which operate outside the reach of HIPAA regulations.)

Entrepreneurs and marketing-types who move into the healthcare realm are also surprised to learn how much sway the reimbursement rules from the Federal government’s CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) have over what can or cannot be offered to healthcare patients. You can’t offer free toasters for changing doctors in the CMS world – nor can you offer incentives for seemingly benign items either, such as tokens to pay for garage parking.

Low CMS reimbursements are also causing structural changes in the primary care segment. More and more physicians, frustrated by low reimbursement rates, are electing to convert their practices to what is known as “concierge care.” Concierge practices require patients to make hefty annual upfront cash payments — typically ranging from $1,000 to as much as $3,000 annually. Those who can’t afford it (which includes most Medicare/Medicaid patients or those with insurance plans) are left behind to find care elsewhere.

In light of all these complexities, is anyone even trying to bring an “UBER”-like digital health experience to healthcare delivery? One bright spot is Oscar, the healthcare insurance company that is trying to brand itself as a digital health community.

PHYSICIAN EXTENDER TECHNOLOGY AND HEALTHCARE DELIVERY OUTSOURCING AND AUTOMATION

Given all these barriers to entry in the healthcare market, are there any other opportunities for digital health innovation?

With primary care providers stretched thin by low reimbursement rates, most have ramped up the number of patients they see each day by using what is euphemistically known in the industry as “physician extenders.”

In many cases, physician extenders are real live human beings, with job titles such as Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) who can take patient histories, make diagnoses and, in the case of NPs, prescribe medications (under the doctor’s supervision).

A new job category has also emerged, the medical Scribe. Scribes, who are trained in medical terminology, shadow the physician, NP or PA to capture and enter patient information (and survey data mandated by the ACA) into the EHR systems.

In time, it’s likely that advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language systems will assist or even replace the role of the human scribe. Other resource-intensive tasks that are mandated by ACA regs, such as providing diabetes counseling, could also be handed off to robotic counselors.

What about apps to extend the reach of the physician?

Telemedicine is a great example. Why should you even come into the office when you could Skype or Facetime the doctor instead?

It turns out the widespread adoption of telemedicine is held up by regulations to some extent. For example, patients must have an established relationship with a doctor before they can use telemedicine (e.g. they must have already had at least one in-person visit). Another requirement: Communication software and hardware vendors have to assume responsibility for maintaining HIPAA patient privacy — yet major software companies (Microsoft with Skype) and (Apple with Facetime) have declined to do so, despite the fact that their apps are sufficiently encrypted for the task. Without a clear industry leader, telemedicine adoption rates have been slow to take off.

Interestingly there have been more advances in first responder systems that connect a remote physician to EMT personnel at the scene of an incident.

Houston’s Project ETHAN leads the way for telemedicine solutions that allow emergency responders to focus their resources more efficiently.

What about AI systems interpreting x-rays or providing differential diagnoses for patient illnesses? We’ll talk about that in the “Big Data” section below.

ADVANCES IN DELIVERING ON THE PROMISE OF PERSONALIZED MEDICINE AND GENOMICS

Many analysts believe the future of healthcare lies in personalized medicine.

And why not?

Hearing Health Foundation Launches New Website Focused on Ménière's Disease

The website will inspire hope among those who live with Ménière's disease, share research updates, and provide a channel through which individuals can give.

These ‘invisible conditions’ affect patients an emotional level. I was completely isolated from the world and was frustrated because I couldn’t do anything or go anywhere.”

— Nicolle Cure, artist recently diagnosed with Ménière's disease

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hearing Health Foundation (HHF), the nation’s largest charity funder of hearing and balance research, unveiled today a new microsite dedicated to Ménière's disease, a chronic vestibular (inner ear) condition with no known cure. The content is accessible at www.menieresdisease.org as an extension of the foundation’s primary website, www.hhf.org.

HHF’s www.menieresdisease.org seeks to build awareness of and bring clarity to the “mysterious” condition with simple, informative pages. The goals are to inspire hope among people who live with Ménière's disease and their loved ones, share updates about Ménière's disease from scientists funded by the foundation, and provide a channel through which individuals can donate to life-changing Ménière's disease research. HHF is fortunate to have all administrative expenses covered by its board of trustees and endowment, so 100% of gifts will directly support life-changing research programming.

Ménière's disease affects approximately 600,000 people in the U.S. The most prominent symptoms include a sensation of ear fullness, dizziness, vertigo, nausea, fluctuating hearing loss, and tinnitus. Some patients benefit from treatments, but far too many remain completely debilitated, bedridden, and unable to work. Episodes of vertigo can strike at any time without warning and this uncertainty offer triggers anxiety and depression.

Ménière's disease has long been an area of interest for the HHF’s long-standing research programs. Inspired by supporters with personal interests in Ménière's disease and gravely concerned by the general lack of research on the subject, HHF declared a greater focus on the condition in 2017 through the establishment of the Ménière's Disease Grants (MDG) program. MDG is exclusively focused on the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of Ménière's disease. MDG awards scientists up to $125,000 for a two-year grant period is governed by the Ménière's Disease Advisory Board, comprised of senior researchers and physicians throughout the country who review each application for scientific merit and program relevance.

The face of the new website is Nicolle Cure, a celebrated visual artist diagnosed this year with Ménière's disease and whose life has been devastated by sudden hearing loss and crippling vertigo. Nicolle describes her reactions to the onset of her symptoms: “These ‘invisible conditions’ affect patients an emotional level. I was completely isolated from the world and was frustrated because I couldn’t do anything or go anywhere.” Nicolle is grateful to have art as a most powerful coping mechanism when she feels well. “I wish to use my art to help people be open about their conditions and find treatments and relief and know that they are not alone in this journey.”

HHF encourages our supporters to visit www.menieresdisease.org to learn more about Ménière's disease and to share with friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, or others who may benefit from the reminder that they are not alone and find inspiration in the groundbreaking research that will one day transform lives.

Hearing Health Foundation’s mission is to prevent, treat, and cure hearing loss, tinnitus, and related conditions and to promote hearing health. Learn more at www.hhf.org, email HHF at info@hhf.org, or call HHF at 212.257.6140 (voice) or 888.435.6104 (TTY).

Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy Addresses Worldwide Thyroid USP Hormone Prescription Deficiency

Recently, there has been a worldwide deficiency in Thyroid USP causing many suppliers to desperately find a replacement source for thyroid disorder sufferers.

There are a couple of good options now to replace the Thyroid USP deficiency. Our pharmacy formulated and offers a unique option.”

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recently, there has been a worldwide deficiency in Thyroid USP causing many chemical suppliers to desperately find a replacement source for thyroid disorder sufferers. Over 7 years ago, Armour Thyroid, the largest supplier of Thyroid USP in the country, changed the fillers in their product. Almost immediately, many people began to complain about the side effects and sensitivities they were experiencing. Within months, the company had to discontinue this new formula, but it took over two years before the original formulation of this product was available again. It was during this time that many patients switched to Thyroid USP compounded. One supplier began dispatching a Thyroid USP from China only to have it recalled by the FDA due to product contamination. For many years now, Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy has been able to get the Thyroid USP from a very reliable source until last year when it became extremely rare and then quickly became impossible to find.
Carrollwood Compounding Center set out to find a solution and is now successfully providing another source to their patients in the Tampa Bay Area without contamination or adverse side effects. First, Carrollwood Compounding Center makes sure they only use the highest quality ingredients on the market. They purchase their chemicals from only two trusted, reliable chemical wholesalers. The reason Carrollwood Compounding Center only works with these two companies is because these wholesalers never distribute a product until it goes through rigorous analysis testing to determine the purity and potency of the chemicals. After 32 years in business, Carrollwood Compounding Pharmacy is proud to say they have never had to recall a product and plan to keep it that way by not sourcing through cheaper, lower quality distributors.
Carrollwood Compounding Center also only uses an inert filler, PH-105 Avicel, and they have never experienced a negative reaction. Some patients have switched to a combination of both T3 and T4 synthetic to find a harmonious balance for their thyroid. Since Thyroid USP is a natural product, it is derived from pig thyroid and is desiccated. Carrollwood Compounding Center uses the alternative combination of T3-liothyronine and T4-levothyroxine as a synthetic drug replacement. They also formulated it with a sustained release by adding an inert ingredient called Methylcellulose. Although this medication is not natural, it mimics the T3 and T4 hormones exactly as your body would make it.
“There are a couple of good options now to replace the Thyroid USP deficiency” says Dan Fucarino, owner and lead pharmacist of Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy. “One option would be to try using the commercial thyroid prescriptions now available like Armour Thyroid, NatureThroid, NP Thyroid and WP Thyroid. I would say these are good options because all these companies are aware of the history of Armour Thyroid and have made their product as inert and hypoallergenic as possible. Most patients are still hesitant to try them again because they are afraid they will have the same reaction as they did before which is why our pharmacy formulated and offers a unique option.”
Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy is located in Tampa, Florida. They feature a State-of-the-Art compounding center with complete sterile facilities. They specialize in prescriptions, female and male hormone replacement therapy, and veterinary compounding. Carrollwood Pharmacy is a family owned, independent pharmacy that has been in business since 1965.
