What To Expect During an Open MRI

What To Expect During an Open MRI

If you need digital x-ray imaging, you may be worried about the process. MRIs are loud, enclosed and can create feelings of claustrophobia. Fortunately, more and more providers are offering open MRIs. Open MRIs are as effective as traditional MRIs at diagnosing injuries, disease, and tumors without the drawbacks.

What To Expect During an Open MRI

Open MRIs are a particularly good choice for children, larger adults, and individuals that are nervous about undergoing the traditional MRI testing. Talk to your digital x-ray imaging provider to see if they offer open MRI options.

Preparing for your MRI

You do need to relax and remain still during the MRI, so it makes sense to avoid caffeine or alcohol before your procedure. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing, but be prepared to change into a hospital gown if needed. Remove any jewlery or other metal before the procedure. If you feel you will have trouble relaxing during the procedure, ask if you can bring your own music, audiobook or other form of distraction.

You may have to ingest or be injected with a contrast material before the procedure. Depending on the testing being done, adding contrast can make it easier to make a diagnosis, as it enhances the clarity of the images produced. Once you are ready for the procedure to begin you will lay on a bed that will be moved into the machine. The technictian will place a coil around or over the area of the body that is being viewed.

While the MRI is working you will hear thumping noises from the machine. This is normal. Try to relax and remain as still as possible during the procedure. You should expect the entire process to last less than an hour.

Once the procedure is complete, you can immediately resume normal activities. There is no downtime associated with an MRI. If you were given contrast solution, increase your water intake to help flush it from your system. The technician will forward your MRI results to your doctor, who will discuss the diagnosis with you.… Read more ...

#1: Shisha pens are portable

Given the fact that shisha pens are healthier than tobacco cigarettes, you may think that they must be some heavy device which needs to be carried with you wherever you go. But this is not the fact. The shisha pen is of the size of an ink pen and it looks pretty much similar to a cigar. You’ll be able to carry it inside your pocket or purse and also in a small bag. Due to this portable nature of this e-cigar, people find it extremely convenient.

Five Ways to Find a Good Dentist for Your Family

Ask People You Know About Who They Recommend

It’s a great idea to ask your loved ones, partners, co- workers or even your associates about their experiences at their dentist and who they think is best. Their advice is not only priceless and helpful, but it’ll also steer you in the right direction when you finally decide to choose your desired dentist.

Go to Their Office

Before you decide to pick a dentist for your family, try taking a visit to the dentist office of the dentist you are considering. Talk to them about their procedures, practices and policies. Ask them about their: 

  • Training and educational background
  • What do they specialize in?
  • What insurances they accept and payment plans
  • How much experience they have?
  • Emergency care options 
  • What their business hours are
  • The experiences the staff has had with the dentist

Do They Accommodate Your Personal Needs? 

Do you have a fear of needles and drills? Do you have a really hard time staying still while your mouth is being picked with? If so, you are going to need s dentist that specializes in sedation dentistry, especially if you have a child who has these problems. Every person is different and not every family dentist caters to the same demographic. Sit down and talk to your dentist about the needs of your family and make sure this dentist can work with them. 

Look Out for Their Reputation!

9 Tips for Overcoming a Meth Addiction

Meth addiction is one of the hardest addictions to kick. However, people do it every day, and you can learn a lot from their habits and strategies for recovery. If you’re ready to live a clean, sober life, here are just nine tips and tricks for overcoming your meth addiction.

9 Tips for Overcoming a Meth Addiction

1. Throw Out Your Stash

This is easier said than done,of course, but it’s one of the first steps that you’ll need to take to beat your addiction. Not only will it get the meth out of your immediate reach, but it will also be an important and symbolic gesture for your recovery. The drugs don’t control you anymore. You don’t need them in your home. You can live without them.

2. Consider Rehab

Some people can kick the habit without rehab. Others will need all of the help that they can get. If you’re in the latter category, there’s no shame in admitting it and checking yourself into a recovery facility. A good meth addiction rehab center can help you with everything from detoxes to cravings, and they can turn your vague wishes for sobriety into concrete plans for the future.

3. Understand Your Triggers

Speaking of cravings, it’s rare to be hit with them out of the blue. There’s usually some kind of trigger that makes you think about drugs. It might be something obvious like driving by your dealer’s old haunt; it might be something subtle like the color of the room where you first got high. No matter what sets you off, it’s important that you learn to recognize and control your response to it. Otherwise, you’ll be a slave to your cravings whenever they strike.

4. Start a Journal

It isn’t always easy to gauge your own progress when you’re stumbling down the deep, dark tunnel of addiction. The good news is that a journal can help. In addition to giving you an outlet for your stress, it can also serve as a tangible reminder of how far that you’ve come. Every page will be one more day that you’ve remained sober.

5. Talk About It

With meth addiction on the rise, more and more people are starting to realize that drug addiction isn’t something that only happens in the movies. It’s areal struggle that their friends and family are facing. Don’t be afraid to open up about your addiction with your loved ones. … Read more ...

A Personal Trainer - Anywhere In the World

A Personal Trainer – Anywhere In the World

You like to workout either late at night or early in the morning, like most people? You have tried the personal trainer in town and you aren’t a fan? You’re schedule is always changing and you can’t nail down a set time to train everyday? Well, you are in luck, I know just the solution for you. Online Personal Training.

Sounds gimmicky, right? Well, think about having a program tailored specifically to you that you can do on your own schedule. No need to think about what to do in the gym, no need to be concerned about making progress towards your goals, no need to coordinate schedules with someone else. Just head to the gym, pull out your program and get to work.

Online personal training is great for those who are already motivated to put in the work and reach their goals, but need a little bit of guidance on the programming. Maybe you aren’t sure how exactly to get to your goals, or maybe you just want to take the guesswork out of it. Either way, online coaching is going to give you just that. I write your program based on your goals; whether that be building muscle, losing fat, training for a race, or just maintaining your current fitness level!

I also work with my clients on things other than fitness. Health is broad topic that emcompasses a lot of different things. We talk about nutrition and how to eat for your goals, as well as how to eat for your future self. We talk about sleep and recovery because NO workout program is going to get you to your goals without proper rest periods! I also like to shed light on things like mindset, overall wellness, supplementation and much more!

Online personal training is more than just a cookie cutter program written by someone who is a “health coach”. These are well thought out programs that are designed with a scientific approach using how the human body reacts to exercise! Finding someone who has similar values as you, knows the WHY behind what you are doing and has the passion to work with you as closely as you will allow is what I strive for. That is the beauty of online personal training – finding a coach that aligns with you but doesn’t have to be physically near you to Read more ...
