SWDHC Ancillary Care And Services

Ancillary care includes those services that support the work of primary health care providers such as family doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and specialists such as cardiologists, surgeons, dermatologists and so on.

What Is The Most Misunderstood Thing About Brushing Your Teeth?

What Is The Most Misunderstood Thing About Brushing Your Teeth?

Here are the truths that need to be better understood: We only have to brush twice daily to reduce the risk of decay. Brushing more frequently does not help any more. If we brush after breakfast, we have to wait 20 to 30 minutes after eating to allow remineralization to occur and the pH of the oral cavity to return to normal otherwise we will be brushing away demineralized enamel that will be lost forever We are not trying to remove all dental plaque or kill all dental bacteria. We are simply disrupting its growth and maturation. If our toothpaste does not have fluoride in it, it is not proven by the preponderance of evidence to be beneficial in lowering our risk of decay. Fluoridated toothpaste is proven. Over and over. We only need to brush for two minutes....

According To Dr Mehmet Oz and Dr. Mike Roizen Obesity Makes Flu Threat Worse

According To Dr Mehmet Oz and Dr. Mike Roizen Obesity Makes Flu Threat Worse

Obesity Makes Flu Threat Worse By Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Mike Roizen, MDs The influenza pandemic of 1918 infected and affected almost everyone in the world. An estimated 50 million people died as a result, making it three times more deadly than World War I, which claimed 16 million lives. As horrible as that was, an unchecked flu pandemic today could have even more devastating results. Special: This Toxic Vegetable Is the #1 Danger in Your Diet A new study funded by the National Institutes of Health found that “obese adults with flu symptoms and laboratory-confirmed influenza shed influenza A virus for 42 percent longer than adults with flu who were not obese.” Meaning that they can infect others for much longer than normal-weight people. The study...

FORBES: Telemedicine Is A Game-Changer For Patients, The System

FORBES: Telemedicine Is A Game-Changer For Patients, The System

Article From OnForb.es While 87% of Americans now have health insurance, overwhelming co-pays, high deductibles and a lack of primary care doctors still stand in the way of healthcare for many. An average GOLD level plan—one of the more expensive, “better” insurance plans—still has a deductible of $2,000 for an individual, which approximately 40% of Americans cannot afford. Thirty-five percent of Americans already struggle with medical debt despite that 70% of those struggling have insurance. And by 2025, the United States faces a potential physician shortage of as many as 52,000. For many, new health insurance is not providing access to affordable care, and the ACA will not address the physician shortage. To bridge that gap, we must find innovative ways...
