Good Reasons To Choose Roadside Assistance

Good Reasons To Choose Roadside Assistance

It is a dark night, the kind where the moon and the stars go missing. A young couple is driving along an unlit highway with nothing between them and total darkness but the stretch of light beaming from the headlights. There is a clash of thunder, a flash of lighting, and rain falls in sheets, streaming so fast down the windshield that the view before the man whose driving becomes a collage of wavy distortions. He leans forward, squinting, as his new wife beside him starts begging him to pull over. He ignores her, focusing all of his concentration on the road. Suddenly, a figure appears in the lights. He slams on the brakes. He swerves. The car spins out of control. His body braces for impact, but they are lucky. The car slides into a ditch. As they emerge from the vehicle, they spot a deer gazing at them from the opposite side of the road. Twenty miles have passed since they last saw any sign of life. The next town is fifteen miles ahead on the map. Thankfully, he gets a signal on his cell phone and is able to call roadside assistance.

Accidents like this happen every day. No one knows exactly when they are going to need help. Where psychic ability falls short, it helps to be prepared. Roadside plans can deliver a number of useful services. Most insurance companies offer this beneficial option. It is also available through credit card companies, or can … Read more ...

Bodybuilding Nutrition - Eat Your Way To A Great Physique

Bodybuilding Nutrition – Eat Your Way To A Great Physique

Often food and how it affects the body are the last thing on a bodybuilders mind, but the simple fact is that bodybuilding nutrition is super important. No truer word has been spoke than when people say that you are what you eat. I’m sure you know the feeling of being bloated when you’ve had too many carbs, or sluggish if you’ve eaten just too much. Those are just small examples of how your body is affected

While just eating intelligently won’t build your muscles, it will fuel your body so that you’ll have enough energy to really make a difference. This tiny fact is something that many bodybuilders overlook.

And when I say ‘intelligently’ it’s not just about the food you’re taking in, but when you’re doing it. And I’m guessing that 50% of everyone who lifts weights to get ripped wouldn’t even have considered such a thing. And if they have, the confusion is immense:

  • Should I eat just before I workout?
  • Should I eat afterwards?
  • When should I have carbs?
  • And when should I eat all my protein?

To answer these questions is simple. The best time to ingest the nutrients that best aid in muscle growth, such as

  • Protein
  • Carbohydrates
  • Creatine

Is after your workout. Preferably within the hour. During this time the body will process these nutrients at its maximum efficiency, building lean muscle and metabolizing the carbs.

Secondly, ingesting a similar amount of carbs, protein and/or creatine before you workout can have … Read more ...

What To Expect During an Open MRI

What To Expect During an Open MRI

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 … Read more ...

The Stages of Addiction and How to Begin a Successful Recovery Process

Whether someone is addicted to drugs or alcohol, their thoughts and behaviour are likely to go through a particular process. Known as the Cycle of Change, it is highlighted by the addiction relief charity Adfam, which also notes how an addict might begin on the road to recovery.

The cycle has six stages – at each of which, you can help relieve issues. Those stages are…

Pre-contemplation

This is where the substance user does not even want to change, as they do not discern a problem with their usage – even if other people do.

If you notice someone in the pre-contemplation stage, you can still help by limiting harm which the substance poses to the user and other people. You can also encourage the user to transition to…

Contemplation

Through cautioning the user about their behaviour and potential consequences of such, you could lead them to both consider their situation and assess whether they wish to change it.

At this stage, they may decide that they indeed want to change, but be yet to make that change. With that user, you can explore the treatment options available to them.

Preparation

Here, the user not only decides to change their behaviour of substance use but also begins preparing to relinquish the habit. However, they may still be anxious about changing.

If you are the substance user in this situation, rest assured that we acknowledge this anxiety. However, you can still benefit from help and encouragement in making the changes … Read more ...
