Una prueba antidoping puede ser requerida antes de una contratación laboral, o realizada bajo algún motivo justificado, de ahí la importancia de priorizar un resultado negativo en ella.

Una prueba antidoping es un examen químico que apoya en el procedimiento de detección, prevención y control de uso métodos y sustancias químicas, ya sean drogas ilegales o medicamentos controlados. Regularmente el termino antidoping es asociado el uso de sustancias prohibidas, por ello, también es llamado examen toxicológico, lo que hace referencias al muestreo que se le realiza a una persona para detectar su consumo.

Diversas instituciones actualmente están recurriendo a este tipo de pruebas para asegurarse de no enlistar en su equipo a personas que tengan antecedentes o predisposición al consumo de drogas.

Existen diferentes procedimientos que ayudan a efectuar si una persona consume o no sustancias tóxicas. La prueba antidoping por medio de diferentes muestreos sirve de apoyo en la detección del consumo y se ha catalogado como uno de los análisis más efectivos. Algunos de los más comunes en el campo de la medicina son los siguientes:

Prueba antidoping de orina: Analiza y mide el consumo de sustancias que una persona ha ingerido recientemente, alrededor de tres a cinco días, esto debido a que la mayor parte de las drogas tiene un promedio de vida de 48 horas.

El consumo de drogas se ha acrecentado en México alarmantemente, por lo cual realizamos programas para prevención y detección oportuna en Abuso de Drogas y Alcohol. Es por ello que nuestro Protocolo de Cadenas de Custodia apoya y asesora a las instituciones educativas e industrias en general para su detección oportuna y con ello evitar riesgos que signifiquen costosos eventos futuros como: baja productividad, accidentes, daños a los activos, rotación de personal.

Para Industrias: Contamos con el programa global de empresa Integrado por prevención, detección y tratamiento oportuno.
Toma y recolección de muestras con cadena de custodia en exámenes toxicológicos y de alcoholemia, esto se puede llevar a cabo en sus instalaciones o en nuestro laboratorio.

Online Retailer Launches New Website in Partnership with Creators of 100% Water-Soluble Nanoized CBD Product

Life Infused Pain Relief+ CBD Bottles

The current lineup of SGT Nutraceuticals Life Infused Pain Relief+ organic water-soluble CBD products

Online store Franny4U is pleased to announce its new spin-off site promoting the first & only 100% water-soluble, organic, whole-spectrum nanoized CBD product.

NIAGARA FALLS, NY, UNITED STATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Franny4u.com, a seller of exclusive limited-edition apparel, decor and other fun items, is pleased to announce the launch of its new health-specific sales channel Franny4U.org, launching out of a partnership with SGT Nutraceuticals, creator of the first & only 100% water-soluble, organic, whole-spectrum nanoized (not "nano-enhanced") CBD product. The partnership came into being from a Franny4U co-founder's constant search for better products in this broad industry.

Franny4U was co-founded by young digital marketer Alexander Velitchko with a mission of continuing his late mother Francine's tradition of sharing creative, memory-making gifts with the world; now, as a lifelong purveyor of healthy living and eating, Velitchko is extending the store's scope to selling health & medicinal products that himself & his family have personally approved.

The first of these products is Life Infused Pain Relief+ Industrial Hemp Extract, the first 100% water-soluble and zero-THC CBD on the market composed of true nanoparticles (10-25nm) for 20X the absorption rate of regular CBD — which enables the highest and best use of medicinal CBD and hemp to date. The nano-size of Life Infused CBD provides calming pain relief within minutes of consumption rather than hours, and without the side effects of psychoactive substances.

Franny4U has chosen to promote Life Infused as part of its founder's partnership with the product's manufacturer & distributor, SGT Nutraceuticals, and offers exclusive discounts for the company's CBD products.

Life Infused Pain Relief+ is a 100% organic nanoized hemp extract containing zero THC, which means it has no psychoactive substances. Because the product is made of nanoparticles and is not simply nano-enhanced, it is twenty times more easily absorbed by the human body as opposed to conventional CBD oil, allowing 95-100% of the particles to be fully absorbed by the body within as fast as only 90 seconds. This CBD is also 100% water-soluble and can be added to beverages of your choice. Life Infused Pain Relief+ is whole spectrum CBD as designated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Alexander's partnership with SGT Nutraceuticals came about as a result of his dad's search for a fast-acting and consistently effective CBD product. In 2015, he was involved in a car accident that seriously affected his health. Pain, anxiety, and severe muscle cramps led him to turn to CBD oil for relief. He tried products from six different CBD providers, but he still was not seeing the results he had hoped for.

After doing some research, Alexander's dad learned that the human body can only absorb a maximum of 5-15% of regular CBD oil. However, he also discovered that nanoized CBD allows for significantly more absorption and typically takes effect in only a few minutes. Then, he came across SGT Nutraceuticals. After using their products, he experienced several nights of good sleep. He also noticed the benefits of the Life Infused CBD almost immediately; the six other brands he tried took at least an hour and a half to give him relief, and would not stop him from waking up well before his alarm.

Franny4U's new project is also in part an extension of Velitchko's new blog vulner-able.com — a website about "New Concepts in Medicinal CBD and Healthy Eating," where he shares tasty recipes from his 15+ years experience on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (more restrictive than just gluten-free), and where his dad examines myths & secrets of the broad CBD industry, dissects health claims of conventional CBD products (in addition to other CBD oils that claim to be "nano"), and discusses the science behind what has made Life Infused nanoized CBD more effective for him than any of the other products he has tried.

To claim the exclusive discounts on Life Infused Pain Relief+, visit the new Franny4U.org site: "Get Life Infused Pain Relief+ Water-Soluble CBD Extract." Shoppers save an additional 5% off on top of other discounts that shoppers are already entitled to as customers of SGT Nutraceuticals.

As of this release, SGT Nutraceuticals is offering a sitewide sale of its 2019 stock at up to 76% off retail price while supplies last. By shopping through Franny4U.org, you will get an additional 5% discount on top of this. Prices will go up when new stock arrives.

Dollar-for-dollar, even at full price, Life Infused beats every other brand on the market for dollars per milligram of pure CBD. For instance, a 5ml bottle containing 1000 mg of nanoized CBD will cost you only $19.99 while on sale, a price unheard of in the industry — and don't forget, it's water-soluble!

ABOUT FRANNY4U

Franny4U is a unique online gift store that sells limited edition apparel, home decor, natural health products, and more. The store connects people with original items so they can find the perfect gift for themselves or their loved ones. Dedicated to the memory of the store founder's late mother, Franny4U offers fun products for passionate people nationwide and internationally.

Alexander Velitchko, co-founder & owner of Triple Agent Digital Media, is launching vulner-able.com, a blog on new concepts in medicinal CBD & healthy eating.

As huge proponents of alternative medicine and healthy eating, my dad & I are excited to share our research and experience on the best practices of these topics to a wider audience.”

— Alexander Velitchko

NIAGARA FALLS, NY, UNITED STATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alexander Velitchko, award-winning speaker & bestselling author, the co-owner & founder of Triple Agent Digital Media Inc., is pleased to launch a health & nanoized medicinal CBD-inspired blog, vulner-able.com. Velitchko envisions this project as a way to widen awareness of new & untapped concepts in healthy living, as well as his observations on the health solutions that have worked best for himself and his dad.

A self-described “marketer by day…baker by night,” Velitchko has learned, over the years, how to enjoy the tastiest foods on a diet that's more restrictive than just gluten-free. After having an allergic reaction to wheat & gluten as a toddler, he went on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Having been on this diet for over 15 years, Alexander has learned how to create culinary dishes that are both diet-friendly and delicious. Many of the recipes he has enjoyed over the years will be showcased on the vulner-able blog, starting with an almond flour-based vegetable cake, which is a long-time staple of his everyday diet.

After many sleepless nights, Alexander and his father have also partnered with SGT Nutraceuticals, the creators of Life Infused Pain Relief+ CBD, the first & only medicinal CBD product of its kind. Life Infused is a 100% organic nanoized (not nano-enhanced) hemp extract containing zero THC, which means it has no psychoactive substances.

Because the product is made of nanoparticles and is not simply nano-enhanced, it is twenty times more easily absorbed by the human body as opposed to conventional CBD oil, allowing 95-100% of the particles to be fully absorbed by the body within as little as only 90 seconds. This CBD is also 100% water-soluble and can be added to beverages. Life Infused Pain Relief+ is whole spectrum CBD as designated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The partnership between vulner-able and SGT Nutraceuticals came about as a result of Alexander's dad's search for a fast-acting and consistently effective CBD product. After a 2015 car accident and the resulting pain, anxiety, cramps, insomnia – and anything & everything that comes from a car accident injury – he has been approved to use CBD treatment since January 2019. He tried more than half a dozen providers without consistent results.

After extensive research, Alexander's dad learned that the human body can only absorb a maximum of 5-15% of regular CBD oil. However, he also discovered that nanoized CBD allows for significantly greater and faster absorption and typically takes effect in only a few minutes. Then, he came across SGT Nutraceuticals. After using their products, he experienced several nights of sound uninterrupted sleep, and many other benefits. He also noticed the benefits of the Life Infused CBD almost immediately.

The vulner-able blog was the perfect opportunity to couple Alexander’s passion for healthy eating with his dad's passion for continuous research. This pairing will enable blog readers to take advantage of resources that will help them not only cultivate a healthy, thriving lifestyle, but in a way that facilitates the highest and best use of the tools, resources & ingredients to do so, above and beyond conventional wisdom of the topics covered.

In addition, the partnership with SGT Nutraceuticals will allow vulner-able to offer exclusive discounts on innovative CBD products as a gift to readers.

vulner-able readers can have SGT Nutraceuticals products for additional discounts on top of deals & perks they're already entitled to.
To claim these additional discounts, use the coupon code SGBXG6 in checkout at SGTNutraceuticals.com.

Mental Health Watchdog Calls for Investigation into Psychiatric Drugging of Millions of Children

Children are being drugged simply because psychiatry has pathologized normal childhood behaviors, and repackaged them as “mental disorders.”

Millions of children are given psychiatric labels for normal childhood behavior and prescribed psychiatric drugs that drive them to commit violent acts and suicide.

Psychotropic drug use is much higher in America compared to other countries according to researchers who found that drug use was 3 times greater in the U.S.

Currently more than 7 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs and hundreds of thousands of these children are between the ages of zero to five.”

— Citizens Commission on Human Rights

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to researchers the use of psychotropic drugs in children was significantly greater in the U.S. compared to the Netherlands and Germany. Use of antidepressants and stimulants was 3 or more times greater in the U.S. (6.7%) than in the Netherlands (2.9%) and Germany (2.0%). Even more alarming is that these researchers found that, “stimulants were used at rates 10–25 times higher in American children 0–4 years old compared to the two Western European countries.” [1]

In response, the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to protection of children, is calling for an investigation into the heavy psychiatric drugging of children.

Currently more than 7 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs and hundreds of thousands of these children are between the ages of zero to five. [2] Children are being drugged simply because psychiatry has pathologized normal childhood behaviors, and repackaged them as “mental disorders.” The result is that millions of children are being drugged for behaviors reclassified by psychiatry as “disease.”

In 2015, the research arm of Florida's child-protection system released a report revealing that foster children are being put on psychotropic medications without caregivers following proper procedures and that 11 percent of the children in foster care had active prescriptions for at least one psychotropic drug. While a review of 140 children's files showed just 20 percent of these children met all the key requirements for administering such medication. [3]

Following the tragic death of 7-year-old Gabriel Myers in 2009, who was found hanging from a shower fixture in his foster home after having been prescribed two “black box” drugs intended for adults – the Florida policies for using psychotropic drugs on foster kids were updated but this has not solved the problem.

The psychiatric drugging of children is not just confined to the foster care system. In 2011 a two-year investigation concluded that kids in Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, Oregon and Texas were “prescribed psychotropic drugs at rates 2.7 to 4.5 times higher than other children in Medicaid in 2008.” [4]

CCHR hopes that the December 2019 “groundbreaking” settlement of a civil rights lawsuit filed in Missouri, which alleged "a longstanding failure by the state to provide adequate oversight in the administration of powerful psychotropic medications to children in foster care", will also bring about much needed reform in Florida. [5] Individuals are invited to the center, located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater to learn more about the dangers associated with psychiatric drugs. To learn more, please call 727-442-8820 or visit www.cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Immersive education counters the systematic barriers that impede the application of effective education strategy in Nigeria and opens up new horizons for enabling sustained access to quality education”

— Dr. Sana Farid ( CEO & Co-Founder ) Munfarid – Mulhimat – VRXOne

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — VRXONE: INTRODUCTION TO THE HOTTEST IMMERSIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM

VRXOne is a state-of-the-art Immersive Education Program created by Munfarid, an innovation firm specializing in Artificial Intelligence (Ai), Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR). This program targets K-12, higher education, non-formal education, and even special education requirements.
The primary objective is to facilitate training, learning, and skill development across various industries. Immersive education includes the incorporation of immersive and creative technologies to impart high-quality education – that adds real value in terms of increased engagement, enhanced knowledge retention, and eventually better results.
The prospect of cutting-edge, customizable solutions tailored for specific training environments is exceptionally efficient and effective. The onset of technology has its pros and cons. While access to specialized information has increased, distractions are on the rise too. VRXOne’s Immersive Education Program helps raise the bar on classroom learning and consequently brings back lost attention to classrooms.
The bottom line is that Immersive learning presents a medium that makes learning an enjoyable process, rather than a cumbersome one. The ingenious experiences help students understand intricate concepts easily and also promote the practical industry-level applications of theoretical knowledge.

SPECIFIC INSTANCES OF THE USEFULNESS OF IMMERSIVE LEARNING

1. BRINGING LESSONS TO LIFE WITH GOOGLE EXPEDITIONS

Google set out to make the impossible possible: Assimilate all the world's information and present it on a single platform. Google Expeditions is the result. This project successfully impacted the lives of over 8 million students.

Expeditions aid teachers teach better by spiking curiosity in students about lessons that are otherwise perceived as boring.

The ambition is to leverage this groundwork that Google has laid for the future of education. The aim is to make Google Expedition accessible to millions of students by providing a comprehensive program in classrooms. And has successfully reached the dream figure of 1,000,000 VR expeditions for students in the Middle East.

“VRXOne equips learning with the scorching power of VRAR and rich in value content curated by the leading scholars.”

As VRXOne is the official Google Expeditions partner (in the regions of the Middle East, Africa, and the Sub Continent), this premium and copyrighted content that Google offers is now provided as a first-hand experience to a myriad of schools. Another fascinating feature is the ability to create virtual field trips wherein students can get transported to all kinds of new locations for learning and exploration – be it the Himalayas or the coronary artery of the human heart.

2. TARGETING SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS: EVERYBODY DESERVES PREMIUM EDUCATION

Students with intellectual or cognitive disabilities often struggle with communication, focus, and concentration. Fortunately, Immersive Learning is here to turn the tables around.
VR helps create safe environments for students with special needs to improve instrumental motor and intellectual skills. This is the most noteworthy capability of Immersive Learning: Make education accessible to everybody willing to learn.

“The onset of Virtual Reality (VR) means that high-quality education is no longer a luxury that students with special needs can only crave after.”

All in all, VR helps special students to focus on individual abilities, strengths, and learning preferences that would be otherwise be hindered in the case of conventional educational systems. The result is a surge in self-confidence and self-esteem – both of which tend to take a hit when students feel bogged down by their disabilities.
Moreover, the happiness that these students feel thanks to the intervention of VR is just indescribable. What once seemed impossible is now very much possible through 4IR technology like Extended Reality.

3. SPACE VIRTUAL TRAVEL TO MARS ISN’T A DREAM ANYMORE

Well, Immersive Learning helps conduct VR Field Trips to Mars: Something that still seems surreal but is possible. This makes the study of space and astrophysics so much more exciting and engaging. VRXOne joined hands UAE schools to host virtual reality trips to Space, including the Red Planet.

“The giant red planet of Mars is suddenly within grasp, thanks to the virtual reality stardom”

Additionally, VRXOne is also prepping up the young minds of UAE to get up to speed with the covetous Mars Mission featuring the Hope Probe set to reach orbit in 2021.

4. FOSTERING STUDENTS FOR THE BUZZING EXPO 2020

The Expo 2020 is the grand stage for all different kinds of scintillating technology, and VRXOne aims to increase the exposure of Dubai students to connect better with millions of students worldwide.
Consequently, students will plan VR based journeys to better appreciate the essence of the massive technology extravaganza that Expo 2020 is all about.

IT’S TIME TO REACH OUT TO THE WORLD

VRXOne is aggressively expanding worldwide to help students and teachers harness the ground-breaking innovation of Immersive Learning.
The new target regions are interesting choices for a variety of reasons:

– India is home to the world’s third-largest education system and is a perfect platform to pitch the revolutionizing technology of Immersive Learning and popularize it.
– Egypt welcomes technological advancements into their schooling system. Interestingly, the demand for education is impressive due to the steady population growth. This country has regularly acknowledged education as the sole means of economic and social mobility. Additionally, the culture of embracing change and wanting to evolve will undoubtedly foster the sophisticated onset of Immersive Learning.
– Oman places high emphasis on accessibility to education as all three levels of school are free of charge. This realization of the essence of education will definitely welcome Immersive Learning to improve the teaching and learning efficiencies of schools.
– Pakistan’s constitution has a unique law that provides free and compulsory education to all children between the ages of 5-16 years. This nation is consistently endeavoring to achieve greater success in the education frontier. Spreading awareness about the potential of Immersive Learning could define a whole new perspective to education.

The underlying objective behind this expansion is subtle and crisp: Educate educators to improve the learning experience using immersive learning.

“The geographical expansion to other countries of the Middle East and prominent countries of Asia is bound to exponentially increase the popularity of XR in the field of education.”

This isn’t the first expansion opportunity that VRXOne has had.

Here’s Dr. Sana Farid on the expansion to Nigeria earlier this year: “Immersive education counters the systematic barriers that impede the application of effective education strategy in Nigeria and opens up new horizons for enabling sustained access to quality education."

Nigeria faces an acute shortage of teaching workforce, and VRXOne looks to expand training and empowerment opportunities for the teachers in Nigeria.

IMMERSIVE LEARNING: A DISRUPTIVE EQUALIZER FOR EDUCATION

The benefits of Immersive Learning are immense, and the consequent impact on the education system is magnificent, not to mention making education accessible to slum schools and refugee schools.

Students are learning and assimilating complex concepts with ease. Moreover, when students combine their learning potential by connecting with other participants of Immersive Learning platforms, great value is added to everybody.

The future is here in the form of Immersive Education, and this is certainly a giant stride towards ensuring Education Equality.

The hurdle of healthcare accessibility is overcome with remote monitoring and telehealth, and catapulted further with the introduction of 5G.”

— Dr. Sana Farid – Pioneer X-Reality & Ai Strategist

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The definition of healthcare has long been restricted to providing for people after their sickness has been diagnosed. Of late, however, the focus has slowly been shifting towards prevention.

“It’s time to move from reactive sick-care to proactive healthcare by default.” Koen Kas, Healthcare Futurist.

This change in attitude has largely been fostered by technological advancements. Thanks to technology, healthcare experts now have access to previously unavailable data. This makes it possible to monitor patients remotely, fill patient charts faster and optimize diagnosis and treatment time-frames.

The HealthTech industry has grown very rapidly since 2015, and the number of venture-back HealthTech financings has grown by 25%.

HEALTHTECH IN 2020: WHAT’S AWAITING YOU

Technology can do exciting things for healthcare especially through Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR).
In the coming year, here are the top five trends in HealthTech to look forward to!

Extended reality is no longer restricted to making video games and CGI for movies. Over the last twenty years, it has evolved vastly and helped develop learning and workplace training.
“Education has found a new dimension with AR/VR technology in the 21st century.”
In the healthcare industry, immersive tools help naïve as well as experienced healthcare practitioners improve their skills without any risk. Learning anatomy is simplified and doctors can perfect difficult procedures in a safe space.
“In 2020, the revenue for VR/AR for education is geared to increase to $300 million, rising to $700 million over the next five years,” suggest reports from Goldman Sachs.

2. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE THAT ENABLES EFFECTIVE DIAGNOSIS, PROCESS, AND SECURITY

Often, there is a big lag in disease diagnosis. Artificial intelligence has reduced this manifold through deep learning and image detection. This will allow doctors to spend time treating patients rather than handle automatable tasks.

”Over the last decade, AI has become more accurate in its diagnosis, being nearly as perfect as healthcare professionals.”

The healthcare industry deals with big data regularly. Processing this manually is difficult and time-consuming. When AI is used, large chunks of data are analyzed rapidly, speeding up processes.
AI can also help win over patients’ trust by improving data security. Many patients are reluctant to give information because they don’t know who can access it. AI can be used to increase data protection through firewalls, authentication, encryption and the prediction of unusual behavior.

3. TELEHEALTH: CONNECTING CARE PROVIDERS ANYTIME AND ANYWHERE

One of the challenges of healthcare is geographical accessibility. Urban residents can access healthcare easily, but people in rural and remote locations cannot.

“The hurdle of healthcare accessibility is overcome with remote monitoring and telehealth, and catapulted further with the introduction of 5G.”

Telehealth and home monitoring make it possible for healthcare practitioners to provide their services without having to meet the patient in person. Although not a holistic response, it can allow doctors to make recommendations and even submit prescription requests.

Augmenting this with AR and VR can bring the doctor’s room to patients’ homes. Thus, they can experience the comfort associated with being in the same physical space as their doctor without leaving their home.

The technological barriers here have been slow network speeds and demanding imaging tools. These congest the network and create a lag in communication that can potentially hurt outcomes.

“5G will hasten image transfer, reduce lag in video appointments, increase the reliability of real-time monitoring and provide rapid access to AI tools.”

With this, as 5G rolls out worldwide, it will make healthcare practitioners more accessible. Patients can look forward to faster diagnosis and treatment, while doctors can optimize their time and prepare for the patient even before arrival.

4. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF VIRTUAL REALITY IN HEALTHCARE

Virtual reality has applications beyond education in healthcare. The imaging capacities of VR have been used innovatively in medical science.
Some patients cannot be sedated or anesthetized because of their age or health condition. For such patients, more and more hospitals are employing VR headsets. The headsets are fitted with immersive reality, which distracts patients from the pain.

“VR reduces anxiety for patients undergoing complex procedures, and makes the experience less frightening.”

In the coming year, we will see VR expanding to help patients deal with different physical and psychological pain.
Burn patients are very likely to benefit from VR, as their pain cannot be mitigated easily medically. Using immersive reality games such as SnowWorld can help distract them, leading to a 50% reduction in their perception of pain.

Patients of PTSD and phobias often find it difficult to cope with situations in daily life. VR helps with exposure therapy to these triggering stimuli, which hastens the recovery process. Slow exposure has also been found to minimize phobia.

5. GENOMIC ADVANCEMENTS THAT HELP COMPREHEND GENETIC INTRICACIES SWIFTLY & ACCURATELY

Studying genes and their components can be very tricky, as they are difficult to visualize. Not being able to interact with complex data visually slows pattern recognition in the brain.

Genomics is particularly important because it helps detect genetic disorders early. Diseases like thalassemia are linked to genetics, and early detection helps improve the quality of life for patients.

Dr. Maryam Matar from the UAE Genetics Association asserts the role of technology here, saying, “Genetic testing and newer technologies provide an opportunity to understand our genes better and allow us to take action to help subside those genes by following a healthy lifestyle, sleep and exercise pattern.”
VR and AR are helping researchers view these complex structures in a 3D format. With even simple tools such as headsets, they can interact with their data in a new form.

“With VR, you can walk through the genes, examining them part-by-part and detecting interactions.”

AR takes this a step further by projecting these images, allowing multiple people to access this information at once.

THE GLOBAL IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHTECH

On a global level, these emerging trends have prompted large organizations to focus on technology. Several healthtech events are being organized worldwide, to bring together experts and encourage innovation. The largest health conference in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region, Arab Health, is making the tech revolution the focus for its 2020 event.

With its immersive solutions partner, Munfarid, the conference will bring Futuristic Healthcare experiences in Training, Diagnostic, Therapeutic, and Wellness programs to its attendees. Through initiatives such as #VRforGood and #VRforImpact, these organizations aspire to help the elderly with chronic illnesses and are spreading happiness through improved quality of life for people all around the world.

IN A NUTSHELL

Technology has been the driving force behind innovation in healthcare and will continue to be so over the coming years. It has made procedures safer, more reliable and optimal.
Through recent advances in AR and VR, patients and practitioners can look forward to a brighter, healthier, and happier 2020!

YOUNG GIRL TRAVELS FROM THE AMAZON TO GRAND CAYMAN FOR LIFE CHANGING SURGERY

Dr. Sripadh Upadhy, Pediatric Cardiologist, Health City Cayman Islands

Health City Cayman Islands treats first patient from the Amazon at its state-of-the-art Hybrid Catheterization Laboratory

CAYMAN ISLANDS, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An Amerindian mother in Bolivia knew there was something wrong with her daughter when she was a baby but she could not afford to go to the city to receive medical attention.

Fortunately, the charity Samaritan's Purse arranged transportation from the emerald banks of the Amazon to the sandy Caribbean shore s of the Cayman Islands.

Pediatric cardiologist Dr. Sripadh Upadhya of Health City Cayman Islands recalled that young Nelly Maldonado lived deep in the Amazon with the nearest medical facility a three-day boat trip away. Nelly's parents were deeply worried because she suffered from tiredness, fatigue, and repeated infections, so they arranged for Nelly and her mother, Carmen, to go to Health City Cayman Islands, far away from anything they had experienced in the Amazon.

"So when I arrived to the Cayman Islands, I was afraid and when I met the doctors I was afraid, too, because (everything) was new for me." But Carmen relaxed when she saw how well her daughter was being treated by the attentive Health City staff.

Dr. Upadhya immediately observed Nelly had a hole in an enlarged heart and her lungs were flooded, severely limiting her physical ability to do anything. "And then over a period of time she would have dealt with pulmonary hypertension (or) high lung pressures, which would be irreversible."

He was pleased, however, to note Nelly's condition did not require open heart surgery, so to correct the anomaly Dr. Upadhya carried out a procedure called a percutaneous device closure. "It's not open heart surgery. It's a cath procedure … we punctured the groin, and then we plugged the hole with a special device."

Dr. Upadhya said the procedure, which took about an hour, went well – the hole was sealed shut and Nelly was discharged the following day. This was made possible because Health City possesses the Caribbean region's only state-of-the-art Hybrid Catheterization Laboratory.

Nelly happily concurred with the doctor: "Before the surgery I got tired a lot. Now I feel better."

Nelly's mother observed the patience of Health City's staff with children. "And they are also patient with the moms," she added.

Dr. Upadhya was delighted to see the marked improvement in his little patient: "She's a changed girl now. She's jumping around. She's playing. So it makes me feel good to see that kind of change."

He lauded the special relationship between Health City and Samaritan's Purse: "It's a blessing for us that we at Health City have been able to do these kinds of procedures for children from most parts of the globe … I thank Samaritan's Purse for giving me an opportunity to do this, to give wonderful life back to children."

Dr. Upadhya said Health City's excellent relationship with the charity helped to provide treatment for young children with congenital heart disease in many of the least developed countries around the world.

After working with them for more than three years Health City has now increased the number of children it receives from the charity. "This year we are targeting about 100 patients. Last month was the busiest month for us, with about 20 patients being admitted from all over the globe."

One of them was Nelly, who with her healed heart and lungs left on her long journey back to the embrace of the mighty Amazon, a region commonly referred to as the heart and lungs of the planet.

Dr. Srini Pillay, Best-Selling Author, Examines Healing Your Body With Your Mind for the New Year in "Psychology Today"

Srini Pillay, Best-Selling Author and Neuroscientist

By Dr. Srini Pillay.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New Year's resolution: Stop ignoring how your mind and body are connected. "Psychological problems" are generally managed by experts of the mind, brain, and behavior (e.g. psychiatrists). Other medical problems are managed by experts of the body in general (e.g. primary care physicians) or people with specific expertise in one particular organ (e.g. cardiologists when there is a heart problem).

On the surface, this may make sense. Yet, historical and emerging research indicates that this makes no sense at all. More and more, we are seeing that your body's wellbeing is inextricably linked with your psychological wellbeing. And by addressing your psychological wellbeing, you can change your body too.

Psychosomatic problems: asthma, gastrointestinal upset, cancer, and other conditions: Prior to the dominance of "evidence-based" approaches to medicine, Sigmund Freud noted four situations in which the psyche and the body appear to be connected: conversion syndromes, in which people may, for example, develop fake paralyses that they are unaware of; neuroses like panic attacks, where patients may develop dizziness or palpitations; hypochondriasis, where patients are almost paranoid that they have physical symptoms; and actual organic illnesses like cancer, where the psyche plays a role (e.g., via health-relevant behaviors that increase risk). In all of these conditions, deep psychological factors likely play a significant role. For example, at "The Paris Psychosomatic School," preliminary studies have indicated that there is a correlation between basic personality structure and the risk of developing cancer.

Action to take: If you have a physical illness, see a therapist to explore whether it may be helpful to investigate the psychological underpinnings of your physical condition. Don't delay psychological examinations. They are not necessarily as disconnected as they may seem.

Depression and your heart: People who have suffered from a cardiac event are more likely to develop depression. While lifetime prevalence rates of major depression are in the order of 17 percent, in those who have suffered a major cardiac event, up to 40 percent of patients meet the criteria for major depressive disorder (MDD). Also, MDD itself places you at a greater risk of heart disease. In fact, the more severe your depression, the greater the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD).

Action to take: Do not assume your depression is "all mental" or that your heart disease is "all physical." Ask your primary care physician (PCP) to check your baseline heart function, and then follow-up as regularly as you both see fit.

If you have heart disease, explore whether you have depression and whether it should be treated. Also, explore the factors common to both. This may help your depression and your heart too.

Anxiety and your heart: It is well-known that symptoms such as palpitations may arise from heart conditions such as arrhythmias, or psychological conditions like panic disorder (PD). However, people often act less on the data that demonstrates that 32 percent of patients with heart failure experience elevated levels of anxiety, or that in a study of nearly 80,000 individuals without pre-established CAD (and half with PD), PD was associated with a nearly two-fold increased risk of incident CAD.

Action to take: If you have heart disease, you must decrease your anxiety. The idea is not to panic even more about this association but to be proactive about protecting your heart. Do regular checks with your PCP, and do not ignore cardiac symptoms by assuming they are always due to panic disorder. Also, ask your mental health provider to connect you with a PCP so that they can help you to discern when to be concerned about your heart. Worsening symptoms or new additional symptoms may, for example, help you decide when to go to an emergency room.

If you have heart disease, explore whether you have conscious or unconscious anxiety and whether this should be treated. This may help your anxiety and heart too.

The gut-brain connection: While the precise bacteria implicated in depression are not certain, there is increasing evidence that abnormal gut bacteria are linked to depression. Bacterial composition may also affect how your body manages stress, and abnormal gut bacteria are associated with greater anxiety.

Action to take: Certain probiotics may reduce anxiety or depression. While conclusive studies are lacking, work with your PCP to see how dietary changes may help your anxiety and depression. A higher quality diet is associated with a lower risk for the onset of depressive symptoms and eating too many refined foods puts you at risk for depression and anxiety too.

If you have an upset GI system, address your diet, anxiety, and mood. They are all connected.

Your immune system and depression: There are many studies that connect poor immunity with depression. Some studies indicate that depression itself may be the result of dysfunction of the immune system. And many studies show that the immune system is impacted in anxiety disorders as well.

Action to take: Discuss the connection between anxiety and immunity with your PCP. Ask, "could my autoimmune disease be linked to anxiety?" or "Should I also be treated for anxiety?" Also, simply getting a better night's sleep can improve your immunity and anxiety as well.

If you have an autoimmune disorder, address your sleep and mood too. This could not only help your mood but also your immune system.

Summary: The argument about whether your mind and body are connected is mostly unnecessary. They are most certainly connected. As to what causes what, the jury is out. Still, from the above associations, we know that your brain, heart, gut and immune system are all implicated in depression and anxiety. You can't ignore your body while attending to your mind, or vice versa.

The functional medicine model of care is based on reversing illness, promoting health, and optimizing function by addressing the nuances in functional imbalances in interconnected biological networks. This model of care that integrates nutritional and lifestyle recommendations also takes into account the fact that your entire body is connected. Recent research suggests that this approach to health is superior.

Mental health probably influences your physical health and vice versa. In the new year, strive to integrate the two. Remember, just because your illness is physical does not mean that a mental or lifestyle intervention is irrelevant. A happy body relies on having a mind that is settled, kind, and compassionate to yourself.

Teen from TN Meets Up with Rising Singer in VA To Film EMOTIONAL TERRORIST an Explosive Music Video about Mental Illness

Billy Mercury & Evan Hurst during the filming of Emotional Terrorist

Complete Strangers around the Globe Collaborate to Send a Powerful Message about Mental Illness

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA, USA, December 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — 17 year -old Evan Hurst traveled from Knoxville, Tennessee, to Virginia Beach, VA, for what Hurst called “a life changing experience”. He was welcomed by the professional film crew TCFVA and joined by vocalist Billy Mercury and actress Brittany O’Neill to create the music video EMOTIONAL TERRORIST.

Executive Producer and Lyricist, Amy Havens Selleck, reflects on the crazy way this video came to fruition.
“Evan’s father had shared the teen’s music with me via text. His instrumentals were exemplary. One of his songs wouldn’t leave my head. It stuck. I asked permission to test run some lyrics and the rest is history.’
‘Ironically, the next day, I spoke with a friend who was in an abusive relationship with her bi-polar partner. That same night, I was involved in a heated exchange with a loved one. It hit me that EVERYONE has been on the giving and/or receiving end of mental illness. No one asks for it. No one wants it. Mental illness strikes unannounced like a terrorist in the night.EMOTIONAL TERRORIST was penned from feelings of utter frustration, anger and desperation.”

Evan’s response after first glancing at the lyrics is a testament to the depth of this young man’s spirit. “I now know what I want to do with my music. I want to use my music as a voice to reach more individuals and bring awareness to people and issues that are overlooked or forgotten.”

Cetre Pegues, Director of “Emotional Terrorist” stated that the project literally landed on his lap at the same time he learned about a friend who had been living in “emotional terror”. “When the project received the ‘green light’, I went into research mode. That is how the scissor scene came to be. I had no idea how many people cut themselves until I interviewed a friend.
I had been trying to work with Billy Mercury for a few years but the right one kept missing us. When Amy told me the sound she was looking for, I knew Billy was the perfect match.”

“I wanted someone who could sing raw lyrics with a smile on his face. I guess it was my subliminal message that no matter how bad things can get, you just have to keep going with a smile. Billy was a direct ‘bulls-eye’.”

Billy Mercury’s sound is the epitome of “feel good music.” The multi-faceted rapper/soul singer is known to be the “hidden gem” of the DMV music and Hip-Hop culture.

Recently, Mercury earned his spot on BET’s premiered music competition show, “The Next Big Thing”. Music magazines have likened his sound to such heavy hitters as Jay-Z, Anderson .Paak and the late J Dilla.

“When Cetre first presented the project to me, my first thoughts were, 'I’ll just sing what was written when I get it…' but when I heard the instrumentals, read the lyrics and realized a 17 year- old wrote the music, I was ALL in.”, exclaimed Mercury.

Evan recounts the moment when he first heard Billy singing the song during filming. “I thought to myself, Wow. This was just something I played on my guitar in my room. It’s not just music anymore. We created a MESSAGE. “

During production, it became apparent that all involved had their personal stories of how mental illness has affected their lives.

Lead actress, Brittany O’Neill was forthcoming in admitting that expressing herself through the character of Serenity was a therapeutic process for her own personal struggles. “This project was a humbling reminder that I can still reach those dark places as an actress. I really connected to the extreme ups and downs of this relationship.”

While diving into the research process, Selleck was shocked to learn the amount of people affected by mental illness. “Our society is suffering behind closed doors seemingly as our relationships crumble while the problem continues to grow.
One can clearly witness in our video how Billy and Serenity truly love each other. They are both desperate. They are both hurting. Billy doesn’t understand. Serenity feels hopeless.
These are not uncommon struggles in many of our households today. 80% of marriages end in divorce where addictions, major depression and anxiety are factors.”

Statistics shared by MentalHealth.gov are startling:

• One in five American adults have experienced a mental health issue.
• One in 25 Americans live with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, bi polar disorder or depression.

What were Evan’s final thoughts when asked what impact he hopes EMOTIONAL TERRORIST will have on the general public? “I would love for this song to shed light on the urgency of finding better resources to help those with mental disorders and also to help the loved ones affected living through the terror with them. There is such a negative stigma on this topic but it can’t get better until we can openly talk about it and be honest with ourselves and others.”
