Small medical offices are in a bind. What can they do when they depend on Medicare reimbursements that usually don't trickle in until let's say March for the beginning of the year? It has taken a toll on those who are employed in these offices because rent, usually as much as a mortgage on a house per month is quite expensive. Then there's the overhead or workers who seem to be over their heads when it comes to this. And of course supplies which includes everything from paper, toner, vaccinations and practically everything else you can think of. When things get old and worn they have to be replaced and this happens. Even discount supplies still cost money. Then there's the workers comp, federal tax and other taxes, electronic health record software, bills, bills and more bills all over the place. I have no answer for this as many physicians do merge to offset the cost of rent and malpractice which usually creates a hostile working environment. Why? You should know me by now, if the money ain't right then I'm usually upset. My question is: should merging a medical office into a larger one be the answer? What if a physician wants to keep their medical identity, haha and really does not want to blend it into a larger practice and invite other problems of people and differences into it? Yes, my job is filled with many a task enough and when things don't add up you strongly consider not coming in. I don't make those decisions about what to open and close except for the ones about myself, just saying! But you cannot work, if you don't get paid by way of currency. If that should happen then it may be time to look for another livelihood. I do feel however that small business especially medical offices should be allowed to practice as is but be given a government stipend to allow them finances to pay for things like rent, utilities and other necessities. Medicaid, which many physicians do not like should be an insurance or health insurance that should offer such a stipend to small medical offices so that the physician's can continue to stay in practice. For example: Brokedown Medical just could not make it in the big world of medicine. This was due to high rent, supplies,the medical staff and the cost of running a medical office. A Medicaid representative informed the physician's that if they began to accept Medicaid patient's along with all of the other health insurances they would automatically receive up to a $3,000 a month stipend or incentive per provider. This was a lot of cheddar for a small office that could at least now not have to worry about rent and other supplies and necessities and the use of equipment to keep the office functioning. They enrolled in the Medicaid reimbursement program and received the stipend each and every month. It was great knowing that by participating in a government program that they could keep their office as they wanted it without the huge worrisome merger of other establishments. Government reimbursement stipends through Medicaid for small medical offices, saved the day or rather patients from having to find another physician!
Throat problems or infections make it difficult for people to eat, swallow and basically enjoy life. Many a time throat problems can be due to tonsillitis. The tonsils are tissues located on both sides of the throat and they are responsible for removing germs and toxins from your airways that can cause infection and the tonsils also crate antibodies to fight off infection. Tonsil stones can also occur due to years of taking medications that have side effects. The problem becomes difficult in trying to treat tonsillitis with people on medications and the fear of removing the tonsils because they are a defense against toxins and may also prevent people from developing diabetes, due to insulin reservoirs. As we get older it takes the adult body longer to recover from having tonsils removed than it would a child. This is largely in part because of the foods we eat and our health overall. Adults become sedentary and if they drink, smoke and eat all the wrong foods and the tonsils are removed then the body is greatly affected by the damage that is done because there are no tonsils as a line of defense to protect the body. It is not the best thing to do by constantly prescribing antibiotics over and over because eventually the body develops a resistance to them and they no longer work. Constant throat pain and tonsil stones can really cause many a complaint and unhappiness. What can be done with an adult in this situation who also is on many a medication? Without compromising the immune system by removing the tonsils unless they are obstructing the airways, then it will be necessary to remove them; is there a way to reduce tonsil discomfort or throat pain? Yes, this often occurs after much thought and distress. A water massage(oral) that enables someone to gently reach the throat area where the tonsils are located is what is needed. Just plain water? No not exactly, when you use herbs such as oregano and fenugreek, because these herbs help remove mucous and have antimicrobial properties to reduce bacterial infections from the effects of taking medications if they are the cause of tonsil stones or tonsillitis. Just fill the water massager (oral) with water so that it will dilute the oregano and fenugreek. You then take the water massager(oral) and spray the water onto the tonsils in attempts to relax them and to remove the excess mucous and tonsil stones that cause the tonsils to become enlarged or infected. Doing this on a weekly basis will allow the tonsils to do their duty in preventing germs from entering the body and thus removing buildup in or around tonsil area that causes the discomfort. Consult your physician or herbalist. If you are able to use a water massager (oral), it will be best to keep your immune system intact and prevent your tonsils from affecting your throat soreness!
Life is full complications. If I had a Tic Tac in dollars for every "tic" that has occurred in my lifetime I'd be able to stay home every day. Tic's are medically described as repetitive sound making due to urges or sensations. Motor induced tics exist too. These involuntary movements eg. vocal tics happen when an autistic person or one who is developmentally or mentally disabled feels that by "making a constant" noise, grunt or odd sound he or she is improving something or that they like the way something is afterwards. Which results in them being happy after all of this is very said and done. Tics are caused by the developmental dysfunction of dopamine neurotransmission, which results in low synaptic dopamine levels and inadequate amounts of dopamine in the basal ganglia. This contributes to the mental disorder of an autistic person. The tic or tics are caused by the abnormal dopamine function in the brain and thus the tic can be considered a neurological disorder. The underlying problem or one of the problems is that people with autism and who often use "throat clearing" tics as a mechanism of function may be affected by "globus hystericus" or in layman's terms "lump in the throat". Gosh, all of this due to neurological anxiety and distress from autism! Because the tic as expressed is sometimes pyscohosomatic since physically they can find nothing medically wrong such as a chronic throat ailment or digestive problem; it can be difficult to diagnose in an autistic person without doing many a test. The throat clearing process is a way of expression for an autistic person who otherwise can't express deep concerns about themselves or the world in which they live. Throat clearing is a way of relieving this anxiety or stress. Since autism also affects a person neurologically, anxiety and stress causes such tics. How can this madness be stopped? Always consult a herbalist or physician before using herbal remedies if using other medications. If you're at wits end and trying to cope with tics in someone who has autism, herbal relaxers may improve relaxation in a person with autism so that they can function and express themselves as humanly as possible. Such remedies include: cedarwood and lavender and can be used to reduce the intensity or frequent urge of tics. Yes, tics occur every day and have created their own start-up. Reduce the bug and get rid of tics by trying cedarwood and lavender!
Pink eye, conjunctivitis and stye eyes are awful and contagious. Patients usually visit their primary care physician for medications to help relieve the discomfort and infection to the eye. An ophthalmologist can also prescribe the same medications, but some patients like that extended wait in a primary care facility. Primary care usually consists of everything related to the human species so as patients go on and on about each and every body part, other people who intend to go in and make the same complaints are probably why visits go beyond a certain time. But, if you're looking for a remedy without the wait or spending money because you have health insurance with a high deductible then here is one you may want to try if you have this kind of problem. Plantain leaves also come in the form of tea bags. Yeah, like plantain tea! The plantain leaf is one that is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. When you have an eye infection the plantain leaf helps reduce the irritation and eye discomfort and if it is a mild one the plantain leaf may avoid a visit to any primary care physician or otherwise. By putting a plantain tea bag that had been soaked in warm water over the eyes or eyelid can help reduce any infection present. In doing so, you can avoid the spread of infection to other people such as co-workers or the medical office staff. Why? Because, to assist with patients many of us cannot be out due to ailments and if one occurs then we must keep remedies such as this, that will enable us to continue working. The plantain leaf is also essential to eye health as they contain vitamin C and antioxidants. Keep those eyes as healthy as the rest of you by using plantain leaf!
