    People are relying on vitamins and dietary supplements for keeping good health. Though these vitamins do not cure any disease, however they make the body capable of fighting the infections. Many vitamins are produced in our body; however, there are certain vitamins which need to be supplied from outside.
    The dietary supplements cannot be an alternative to the diet; however, they help people become strong and healthy. With doctors prescribing vitamins and supplements, the demand of Halal Vitamins and supplements is rising among the Muslim communities. The Islam forbids anything which is Haraam. The religion stresses on having pure, clean and healthy body and according to the religion, only Halal food and eatables should be taken. Realizing the need to have Halal Vitamins and Islamic Halal Vitamins D, many pharmacists have come up with Halal products.

    The Vitamin D is one of the most useful nutritional tools and helps in improving health. Most of the people suffer from deficiency of vitamin D and therefore, doctors or nutritionists often prescribe Vitamin D capsules. Muslims usually avoid taking these capsules which are made of gelatin, a product made from pork. Even the Vitamin D has certain ingredients which are Haraam and are disapproved by Islam. Similarly Omega 3 Fish oil pills are usually prescribed by nutritionists for various health benefits, but, the Muslim community hesitates in taking the pills because these pills contain Haaram ingredients. Knowing that Omega 3 Fish oil prevents heart diseases, lowers Cholesterol and reduces blood pressure, many companies have come up with Omega 3 fish oils pills made with Halal ingredients. These pills increase growth hormones, reduce blood clotting, and suppress inflammation.

    As many companies are offering Halal Vitamins and Omega 3 fish oils pills, it become difficult to choose a supplier that offers genuine Halal products. Halal Nutritional Center, HNC, is a registered producer and distributor that supplies 100% Halal products, which are made as per Islamic guidelines. The company is providing Halal dietary supplements; Omega 3 fish oils pills, prenatal supplements, Islamic Halal vitamin D, and other health supplements. All these products are manufactured by using Halal ingredients and processes. These products do not have any animal derivatives such as gelatin and alcohol. The materials and ingredients are derived from vegetables, fish, and Halal bovine sources. HNC is approved and certified by the Islamic Society of North America and American Halal Foundation.

    One of the things I worry about when a foreign patient comes to town is accommodation.
    Singapore offers a wide variety of accommodation types to suit different budgets, needs and preferences. These range from budget and boutique hotels, to 6 stars hotels and fully furnished serviced apartments in good locations.
    Despite these choices, it is sometimes a challenge to find the right combination that pleases a fussy patient.

    However this problem may be alleviated when a new integrated hospital complex is scheduled for completion towards the end of 2010.
    This 19 storey Mediplex comprises a medical centre with specialist suites, hospital, and a hotel. This concept is believed to be the first in Asia and the objective is to capture a big slice of the estimated S$100 billion medical tourism market.

    The medical centre has 189 consultation suites to house a wide spectrum of medical specialists. The hospital next door has 11 operating theatres, three day surgery units with 60 attached beds, an intensive care unit with 23 beds, radiotherapy unit, clinical laboratories and a full-service pharmacy.

    Connected to the hospital is the hotel and guests have a choice of standard hotel rooms, serviced apartments and villas. All accommodations feature large bathrooms with rain showers, bay windows presenting floor to ceiling view.
    The hotel is designed to offer a lush tropical garden ambience, with large spas, gymnasiums, six pools, ballroom, banquet hall, seminar and conference rooms, and a floor dedicated to retail food and beverage outlets.

    A patient can check into the hotel in the morning and walks over to the medical centre to consult the doctor. Then he goes for lunch in one of the many restaurants and proceeds to do some investigative tests in the afternoon. He returns to the hotel a few steps away, does some window shopping in the evening after which he has the pleasure of a good massage in the spa. The next day he goes to the hospital next door for surgery and returns to the hotel to recuperate. All these activities are done in the same medical complex without leaving the building.

    Family members and companions can stay in the same hotel, and enjoy the comfort and convenience of world-class facilities and at the same time provide emotional and physical support to the patient. This is healthcare and wellness at its best.

    I am eagerly looking forward to the pleasure of showing this new integrated medical complex to my next patient.

    Since so many people develop eye problems because of the too long hours spent in front of the computer screen, the popularity of the eye vitamins has increased a lot over the last decade. Taking eye vitamins is presently considered a remarkable way of staying healthy for a longer period of time, protecting our sight from the radiations we come into contact with. Though a balanced diet is essential to the proper body functioning, sometimes it may not be enough to meet all the requirements for healthy eye sight. Eye vitamins are over the counter products that can be purchased from any drug store, and they are usually a combination of vitamins A, C, E and lutein.

    Minerals and the B2 vitamin are also part of the supplements that carry the name of eye vitamins; their main action is antioxidant, meaning that they prevent the accelerated decay of the retina and the lens tissues. Even if there are hundreds of brands that sell eye vitamins, it is definitely good to follow some very critical selection criteria before buying a product. You may actually ask for the advice of your health care provider to learn what the proper dosage of eye vitamins should be used to match your health condition.

    Eye vitamins usually prevent or slow down the degeneration process of the macula. Vitamin E is most often associated with incredible successes reputed in the fight against sight problems. Moreover, studies conducted on thousands of patients have also revealed that zinc is also an important mineral in the limitation of the vision loss disorders that are so common in our times. Many of the eye vitamins we take as supplements should come from a normal diet; this means that someone who has a correct fruit and vegetable intake would be less exposed to eye health problems.

    Carotenoids or the unprocessed forms of vitamin A are present in carrots, oranges and all colored fruits and vegetables; hence, one may very well support the administration of eye vitamins with enough salads and fresh juices that contribute to the maintenance of the vision integrity. Given the fact that antioxidants are the supplements usually prescribed for eye problems, most doctors have come to refer to these products as eye vitamins. Nevertheless, even if highly positive in action in case of vitamin deficiencies, supplements can also lead to overdosing, which may prove just as dangerous as lack of nutrients.

    The Shocking Truth is that you will only realize 70% of the value of a traditional health plan.

    The reality is that for the small businesses (especially the sole owner type), monthly health benefit plans are designed to yield around 30% in profit for the Providers when it comes to routine health care expenses. On average, for a small business, you will only get out 70% of the premiums you put in – the traditional monthly plans are designed that way. And, if you claim more in one year, your premiums or limitations will normally increase to maintain that 70/30 ratio.

    A Health Spending Account is a great alternative for entrepreneurs.

    In contrast, a Health Spending Account (HSA) is far more cost effective for these routine health care expenses, without the artificial percentage and coverage limitations imposed by the insurance carriers. For example, most monthly health plans cover 80% for routine cleaning, up to a fixed annual limit per person. HSA’s have no percentage limits imposed – 100% is covered.

    Monthly health plans typically cover only certain services. Few monthly plans cover things like glasses, massage therapy, orthotics, contacts, laser eye surgery, etc. A Health Spending Account allow entrepreneurs’ and their dependents to gain access to a full spectrum of health care services.

    The final good news is that Revenue Canada (CRA) allows incorporated Canadian businesses to write-off 100% of the costs of a Health Spending Account, and all claim reimbursements to employees (and dependents) are completely tax-free.

    Is it any wonder that today the majority of small Canadian incorporated businesses are now looking at a Health Spending Account, as either their primary, or secondary form of health coverage.

    The bottom-line is that it is more economical to cover the routine costs, and the broader range of health care services through a Health Spending Account. In these situations, the monthly benefits plans are more restrictive, more costly and far less flexible.

    You hear a lot about vitamins and minerals, but do you have any idea if you are getting what you need? You probably are, for the most part. There are times when we don’t however, and this direct us to a very interesting theory. My mom offered me a book she had read a while back, and it stated that those who don’t get the right vitamins and minerals each day might get sick easier and also might walk around with unusual cravings.

    I read the book and it got me thinking about a teacher I had in seventh grade. This person was your classic teacher, even if he was not very animated. Many times he would eat the chalk he had in the classroom. Though we thought it was funny at the time, I never thought there was a reason why he did it. May be it had something to do with the amount of vitamins and minerals in his diet? I am not sure, but this book told me it was. It’s a fascinating theory. But would it makes us eat chalk if our body craves for vitamins and minerals it is not getting?

    So this might explain why you crave certain foods. That’s certainly not as awful as eat chalk, but this could elucidate odd cravings, especially during pregnancy. Pregnant women require more vitamins and minerals than anyone else, and they must to be sure they get them. Do they have to ask for Italian dressing and hotdogs in the middle of the night if they aren’t getting the vitamins and minerals for themselves as well as what they need for their growing baby? I don’t know.

    I {really don’t know if a lack of important vitamins and minerals might explain cravings, even though the man who wrote the book made some excellent points. What I do believe is that if you are dieting you deal with cravings every day, and perhaps if you make sure your amount of vitamins and minerals is what it should be might just stop a few of those crazy urges that make you over eat. Even though it’s just a theory, maybe if you make sure you take a daily vitamin it might help you to stop your cravings just in case it works. If you take up a diet plan that ensures you get the right foods each and every day, perhaps that, along with the vitamins, might give you the head start you need to keep on track. Just don’t eat chalk, ok?

    A health and balanced diet should always provide the necessary vitamins and minerals that someone requires. Despite this it seems that many people still take vitamin and mineral supplements to compensate for their diet, for anyone that does so it is important to note that taking these supplements on a long-term basis can have some damaging effects. There are of course some instances where individuals might need to take these supplements, for example pregnant women or those trying to conceive might be advised to take folic acid supplements, which help to reduce the risk of spina bifida. For people that do not get as much sun as they should due to environmental factors might benefit from vitamin D supplements, and children from six months to four years old can find that vitamins A, C, and D are beneficial during growth.

    There are two main types of vitamins, water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins. As you would expect fat-soluble vitamins are typically found in fatty foods that contain animal fats such as butter and lard, dairy foods, vegetable oils, liver and oily fish. Fat-soluble vitamins are used in the body every day, however this does not mean that they need to be included in a daily diet. Your body will not require thee vitamins immediately, instead they are stored in the liver and fatty tissues for future use. Fat-soluble vitamins can be stored up and left until they are required but having too much of them can also be harmful. Fat-soluble vitamins include vitamins A, D, E and K.

    Unlike fat-soluble vitamins water soluble vitamins are not stored in the body and therefore have to be replenished more frequently. An excess of water-soluble vitamins in the body is easily resolved as they are passed when urinating. Because their vitamins can be stored they are typically not harmful, although large amounts can still come with implications. These vitamins are found in foods such as fruit, vegetables and grains. They can be destroyed through exposure to air or heat, and can even be lost in water when cooking. The most effective technique for maintaining these vitamins when cooking is to simply steam or grill the foods rather than boiling them. Water-soluble vitamins include vitamins B, C and folic acid.

    Minerals are also essential in a balanced diet, they allow us to build strong bones and teeth, control body fluids inside and outside cells, and turn food into energy. Minerals can be fluid in foods such as meat, bread, cereals, fruit, (especially if it’s dried), vegetables, nuts and various dairy products. Vital minerals include calcium and iron.

Remember what the purpose for the language activities are, focus on that, and not just having fun. Also do not be a stickler for how long your child should be doing the activity, otherwise it becomes a chore instead, and he will not be motivated to do it again.

    Speech Therapy Activities Part 1

    Using PECS or Picture Exchange Communications System uses pictures as an alternative way of communicating with your child. Naturally, you will need some practice with this because for a child, a picture of a sandwich could mean he’s hungry but not necessarily for a sandwich.

    You can go around the house tagging items with a picture and the word spelled out. Eventually, from practice, your child will recognize the word and not just the picture. By then you can take away the pictures and just have word tags.

    Speech Therapy Activities Part 2

    Use of music to teach pacing and pauses between words. The music therapy is a great way to introduce sounds and how they can be used. It works in conjunction with language therapy activities in many instances because of its universal appeal. There are special CDs for young children with Apraxia that you can buy as part of your language therapy activities at home.

    With singing, children with Apraxia can enjoy speech therapy activities by learning how to elongate their vowels.

    Speech Therapy Activities Part 3

    Why not play Go Fish or the Memory Game using cards as your game tools. Cards are very good as part of your speech therapy activities as well as in helping develop dexterity and hand-eye coordination. These are just 3 language therapy activities that you can do without special tools. It will not work though if you do it a couple of times a month.

    There has to be some form of schedule, 5 to 10 minutes a day, to make it work.
