The “annual physical” can be an important part of your health maintenance program, yet many people skip it, notes Dr. Matthew Bogard in a new article.

Matthew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

Regardless of whether or not there are any problems with the results of your medical examination, visiting a doctor will help you understand the changes that you need to make to your lifestyle”

— Matthew Bogard, MD in Iowa & Nebraska

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, January 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s unfortunate that many people only see a doctor when they are in pain or sense a serious ailment. It’s quite curious, as many people regularly bring their car in for maintenance and an oil change, have a technician check the air conditioner at home, and pre-treat the lawn with chemicals. Isn’t your health more important than your car or air conditioner or lawn?

Many chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease take a long time to develop, and their development can easily be discovered and treated during a routine exam with your medical doctor. If that alone is not enough to convince you that an annual medical exam is a good idea, read the newest informational article by Dr. Matthew Bogard, available on his blog at https://matthewbogardmd.blogspot.com/

We all have busy lives. We spend more time at the office than we would like, the drive to the office in congested traffic can rob you of significant time, and then the kids need help with homework. There simply is never enough time. Thus, seeing a doctor when you are feeling well is probably the last thing on your mind. Though most people don’t see the doctor unless they feel like it is absolutely necessary, this approach can literally be hazardous to your health and can delay diagnosis of developing conditions.

Since the symptoms of most chronic conditions and diseases do not appear until the situation has become considerably worse, getting an annual medical exam is a great idea to know what exactly is going on with your body and help make the right changes to your lifestyle to prevent complications.

If you are still not convinced of the importance of annual medical examinations, here are a few more reasons that might help change your mind about medical examinations and convince you to see your doctor for an annual physical examination.

Have a professional screen your health

Many people resort to self-diagnosis – “if it feels really bad, I should probably see a doctor.” While this approach may work fine for the common cold or a sore elbow, other situations such as prolonged stomach pains or chest discomfort should not be ignored. The most debilitating illnesses, diseases, and conditions often appear in the form of symptoms that could easily go undiagnosed or mistaken for other, less severe ones. It is best to see a medical doctor to ensure that you are in the clear.

Picture of your health

Even if the results of your medical examination turn out “normal,” seeing your doctor regularly is a great way of ensuring that you’re not at risk of developing serious conditions or illnesses down the road. A simple example are routine blood tests for cholesterol and sugar which give the doctor an indication of diseases you are at risk of.

Even if there aren’t any anomalies in the results of your medical examination, getting a thorough checkup once a year can help both you and your doctor understand the true status of your health.

Review your vaccinations

Nothing lasts forever, including vaccines. Vaccinations are not just for children. It is important for adults to receive recommended vaccines. Additionally, since the type of vaccination that you might need depends on a number of different factors including your age, it is apt that you visit your doctor on a yearly basis for the right examinations and to update your vaccinations.

Review your lifestyle

Regardless of whether or not there are any problems with the results of your medical examination, visiting a doctor will help you understand the changes that you need to make to your lifestyle in order to remain healthy and active for years to come.

Additionally, since letting go of certain dangerous habits such as smoking or binge eating can be difficult without the intervention of a professional, your doctor will also be able to provide you with the right resources to change your life for the better. And since your health depends on a number of different factors, visiting a doctor regularly for checkups will ensure that the doctor has complete understanding of your medical history and all conditions that you may have, allowing him or her to provide you with the best advice to achieve or maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What does the Annual Physical involve?

While there really isn’t a fixed standard that decides what will and will not be included in an annual physical examination, there are some things that you should expect in every annual physical examination.

When you visit your doctor for your annual physical examination, it goes without saying that your doctor will specifically ask you if you’ve been facing any problems with your health in recent weeks or months. Depending on your response, you will be thoroughly checked to ensure that the doctor fully understands and assesses the situation and pinpoints any underlying problems or conditions.

Next, the doctor will check your vital signs to get an idea of your overall health and wellbeing. Once your blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and respiration rate are checked, the doctor might start asking you some more basic questions about your health and physical state in general. By doing so, the doctor will not only figure out what they need to regarding your responsiveness and mental quickness, but the doctor might even throw in a question or two to test your memory.

Once this is done, your doctor will get into more thorough testing and examinations of important organs such as your lungs and heart. Using a stethoscope, the doctor will listen to your heartbeat to check for irregularities or any signs that could potentially be caused by cardiac problems or diseases. Your lungs, too, will be checked for any wheezing, crackles, or abnormalities that could be an indicator of respiratory issues.

The overall health of your skin, sinuses, eyes, and teeth may also be checked in a physical exam so that the doctor gets a clear picture of your overall health. Finally, your doctor may check your lymph nodes, thyroid, tonsils, and ears to ensure there are no issues.

In conclusion, an annual physical is a comprehensive physical exam that can help you and your doctor understand your physical health and well-being. It will not only be possible for your doctor to detect or diagnose many of different health problems, conditions, and diseases, but also help you regain health and stability in your daily life.

Men's Sexual Health Program Focused on ED Treatment for BC Men

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pollock Clinics is proud to announce the addition of a Men’s Sexual Health and Wellness Program focused on the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED).

Pollock Clinics approaches the diagnosis of erectile dysfunction by conducting a comprehensive initial assessment. A personalized treatment plan can then be developed based on your specific circumstances.

The initial consultation and assessment are covered by MSP of BC with a doctor’s referral.

Erectile Dysfunction – Causes & Solutions

The Canadian Study of Erectile Dysfunction identified that 49.4% of men over 40 have some experience with ED (from the Canadian Urological Association erectile dysfunction guideline 2015). Though all men may experience an occasional lapse of sexual function, ED is the persistent inability to achieve an erection, despite being sexually aroused. Erectile dysfunction is a potentially treatable medical condition that is not related to masculinity or sexual prowess.

At Pollock Clinics, they are dedicated to providing our patients with the latest innovative treatments to erectile dysfunction. The men’s sexual health program focuses on erectile dysfunction treatments and any associated issue with low testosterone.

Vancouver ED Treatments & Services

Pollock Clinics offers both physiological and psychological treatments for erectile dysfunction. Options include:

Erectile Dysfunction Shockwave Therapy (EDSWT)

The application of low-intensity shockwaves (like sound waves) to help re-establish proper blood flow to the penis. EDSWT is a non-invasive treatment that requires no drugs and can potentially offer long-term benefits. This same method has been successfully tested and regularly used in other areas of medicine including Orthopedics, Aesthetic Medicine, and Sports Medicine. The aim of EDSWT is to trigger regeneration of blood vessel in the penile shaft to support stronger, longer, and more satisfying erections.

PRP Therapy – Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Using the patient’s blood, platelet rich plasma is separated and injected into the penis, with the goal of revitalizing muscles and tissues and improving circulatory function. PRP Shot injections are safe and approved by Health Canada.
Plasma-rich-platelet therapy (PRP) has also been a successful treatment modality in orthopedics, plastic surgery, and sports medicine.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

TRT is a hormone replacement therapy that can counter the effects of low testosterone production. TRT can help men with low testosterone regain sexual function (including quality of erections), support overall health and energy levels, as well as mood and mental function.

At Pollock Clinics the goal is to carefully select patients with erectile dysfunction who may also have signs and symptoms of low testosterone through detailed history taking, focused physical examination, and proper biochemical laboratory findings to determine the appropriateness of TRT.

Your ED Treatment Centre in Vancouver

Sexual wellness is essential to your health and happiness and should continue to be as you age. Many scientific studies have shown the numerous benefits of a healthy and active love-life which include: living longer, greater well-being and a happier and longer lasting relationship with your partner.

Author Adah Kennon Ph.D. to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Adah F. Kennon worked for 30 years plus as a top notch school psychologist and counselor. She is the owner of Sheba Enterprises, the author of Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? and creator of www.247lightheartedcaregivers.com. She holds four advanced degrees including a Ph.D. and three Master’s Degrees in psychology, education and counseling.

Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? is a survival manual and a self-empowerment tool. “My husband was tragically stricken with kidney disease,” says Dr. Kennon. “ I never had to take care of anyone on this level. Suddenly due to medical errors my husband became ill and my life totally changed. New issues surfaced daily, and I realized that there wasn’t anything suitable to address my unique responsibilities as a caregiver. So I decided to take control of my situation and to assist others by sharing what I learned.”

“The most critical issue facing us was how to get access to life-saving prescription medication,” says Dr. Kennon.

Encouraged by her husband, Dr. Kennon wrote her book out of anger and frustration with big pharma, the healthcare industry and the federal government. Her husband is an 88-year-old WWII and Korean War honorably retired African American Army veteran. He enlisted in 1948 and was promised free health care. Instead he became the victim of bait and switch when that promise was broken. The book chronicles their journey to overcome the prior authorization process. Readers learn how this happened and how they fought back.

“Health Care is the number one issue in America,” says Dr. Kennon. “ No one can argue the benefit of low health care costs and having a lot of heath care plans to choose from. But what difference does it make if in your hour of need you don’t get what you thought you paid for. Most people know more about the details of their grocery lists than they do about the fine print in their health insurance plans. And to make matters worse, distractions are being used to keep people ignorant of what they really need to know. That worries me, because I know what this can do to the quality of a person’s life.”

“There are some good health insurance plans out there. However, my book presents strategies to counter the misuse and abuse of the prior authorization process by those using it to further their profit and not patient welfare.”

Her website and blog are designed to empower caregivers by sharing knowledge and encouragement.

“I have had tremendous response,” says Dr. Kennon. “ In fact, my book was profiled in “The ROCKET Newsletter” (Summer 2018), a publication of The ROCKS, Inc. which is the premiere and largest professional military officers’ organization for Army Officers, Warrant Officers and Department of the Army Civilians.”

Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? Is available via the author website (complementary autograph included), and Amazon.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Adah Kennon in an interview with Jim Masters on Monday January 21st at 3 p.m. EST.

Bedford Massachusetts Drug Delivery Company Integral BioSystems Announces New Zealand Patent Grant on OcuSurf™ Invention

Specialty drug delivery company Integral BioSystems LLC has won a broad patent allowance by the IPONZ for its platform delivery innovation OcuSurf™

OcuSurf™ presents new opportunities for developing new and improved drug products”

— Dr. Shikha Barman

BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, US, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Boston-area hybrid CRO/innovation company Integral BioSystems, has won a patent allowance from the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand on one of its flagship inventions, OcuSurf™, a novel, patented, differentiated and improved formulation approach for medications to treat disorders of the ocular surface and the anterior chamber of the eye. Products formulated in OcuSurf™ are highly bioavailable and tissue-permeating, due to its ability to rapidly absorb into tissue. OcuSurf™ variants for other routes such as oral, dermal, rectal, and urology have been enabled with multiple small-molecule drugs. Due to the high tissue permeation enabled by OcuSurf™, this innovation is an excellent 505b2 strategy for drug reformulation, either to bridge the revenue gap for patent-expired products or to offer a path to render insoluble, impermeable drugs bioavailable.

The Details
A substantial number of ophthalmic drug products for disorders of the ocular surface are hydrophobic, or sparingly soluble in water, and formulated as suspensions. This results in less than 5% of each eye-drop actually being absorbed by the target tissue. Such formulations typically contain a high concentration of drug to achieve a therapeutic effect. OcuSurf™ nanostructured emulsions are formulated into mucosa-penetrating, tissue absorbed nanoparticles, melting at body temperature to release dissolved drug at the requisite tissue site, allowing much less drug to be administered for equivalent or better therapeutic effect.

Integral BioSystems is developing an ophthalmic pipeline utilizing this technology. As a business strategy, Integral invites licensing-based collaborations for other potential applications in ophthalmic, dermal or other routes that can benefit from this technology.

About Integral BioSystems
Since its formation in 2011, Integral BioSystems has established credibility in drug formulation, CMC consulting, analytical method development and methods qualification, as well as scale-up process engineering. Along with its strong presence as an ophthalmic product development CRO, the company also has expertise in other routes, including injectables, infusions, topical dermal gels/creams, and nanocrystals. Integral BioSystems provides expertise and know-how in developing both front-of-the-eye and back-of-the-eye products, offering complete development services in pre-formulation, including bioanalytical.

For companies seeking to develop a new product that is using a re-purposed drug, Integral offers its innovative delivery systems as licensable technologies to build value into prospective clients’ drug products through a 505b2 regulatory strategy. For companies seeking product life cycle management, Integral can help them quickly ascertain if Integral’s innovations can provide the desired improvements. With multiple billion dollar drug products going off-patent, this presents a cost effective way to develop an extended product life cycle with novel IP. In this manner, Integral will offer its insight and technological innovations in drug delivery to strategize and improve the customer’s product portfolio. To this effect, Integral BioSystems has been a development partner for both innovative and generic companies.

LATITUDE Pharmaceuticals Receives Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Covering Stabilized Aqueous Glucagon Formulations

Patent Application Covers Glucagon Formulations for Use with Insulin Pumps and Artificial Pancreas

SAN DIEGO, CA, US, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — LATITUDE Pharmaceuticals Inc., a specialized formulation developer for the biotech and pharma industries, announced today that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) related to its patent application covering a stabilized soluble glucagon formulation (“Pumpagon”). Thus, a USPTO patent examiner has determined that LATITUDE’s Pumpagon formulation is entitled to a patent under US patent law. Other Pumpagon-related international patent applications are pending.

“We are highly pleased the USPTO has recognized the novelty and industrial utility of our simple and inexpensive approach for keeping glucagon solubilized and stable in an aqueous pumpable solution,” noted Andrew X. Chen, LATITUDE’s President. “Since Pumpagon is more stable than presently marketed glucagon formulations and because it does not contain any new, irritating or unapproved ingredients, our formulation could have a very short development path to become the glucagon formulation of choice for use with the dual hormone insulin/glucagon pumps (artificial pancreas), as well as for mini-dose glucagon administration to treat children with Type 1 diabetes, two emerging diabetes therapies that will be enabled by the multi-day stable Pumpagon.”

About Pumpagon
LATITUDE’s Pumpagon can be prepared using common approved injectable ingredients or by combining a marketed dextrose solution and a lyophilized glucagon, which are both FDA-approved and have decades of proven clinical safety. Given the extensive familiarity and proven safety of its components, Pumpagon may have immediate utility for a greatly accelerated FDA approval process for use in treating diabetes.

About LATITUDE Pharmaceuticals Inc.
LATITUDE is a developer of innovative drug formulations and drug delivery systems for the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The company is highly regarded for its intellectual property-generating and innovative approaches to developing pharmaceutical formulations for problematic and/or highly insoluble drug molecules.

Licensed MFT and EMDR Clinician Dr. Irit Goldman to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Growing up in Israel, Irit Goldman knew she wanted to be a psychotherapist, and also wanted to focus on children. She never dreamt that a few years as a special education teacher, to help her align with counseling children who have special needs, would grow into a lengthy career. When Dr. Goldman retired after 37 years in education (13 of it in Israel), she finally had the time to focus on her other great passion: diagnosing and healing patients using a modality known as EMDR. Dr. Goldman is one of only three clinicians in her part of California certified in this bilateral brain stimulation technique, which helps people cope with trauma and avert PTSD. That is why she was requested to counsel responders to the raging wildfires this fall, and why she volunteered to be on the frontlines of a war in Israel a few years back.

In her radio show, Dr. Goldman is going to explain just what EMDR is, how it was discovered by Dr. Francine Shapiro, and how useful it can be to unlock the brain section that stores memories. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing, which is a mouthful to say, but not that hard to understand–especially when Dr. Goldman uses the analogy of the digestive system to explain how things get processed and eliminated by the human body (or when they get stuck and can’t be processed). By activating the two sides of the brain to work together, with eye movements similar to those in our REM sleep mode, people are able to process traumas—like being in a car accident, witnessing a crime, or suffering physical/sexual abuse—and to feel safe, confident and whole again.

EMDR is a complex process and Dr. Goldman knows it is not the counseling tool for everyone. She chooses what to use in her treatment sessions–which involve individuals, couples and groups—based on the patient and his/her distinct needs. Sometimes she will use traditional talk therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy, to help resolve patient problems. Those may include depression, stress management, phobias, anxiety, relationship issues, ADHD and grief.

Irit Goldman received her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) in 2002 and then a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2004. She pursued training in EMDR in 2009 and frequently uses, or speaks about, this unique therapeutic modality. Listeners who want to know more about EMDR can watch a video up on Dr. Goldman’s website, or read the book The Body Keeps the Score (by Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk) that discusses how we store the memories of traumatic events inside.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Irit Goldman in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on Friday, January 19th 2019, at 3:00pm EST.

Youth for Human Rights advocates celebrate after the signing of the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act

This is a bill that has the potential to help so many victims of trafficking and prevent future generations from falling captive to this illegal slave trade”

— Erica Rodgers, National Director for Youth for Human Rights

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Youth for Human Rights advocates celebrate after years of hard work leading to the signing by President Trump of the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act

In the midst of the longest Government Shutdown on record, human rights advocates across the country took a moment to celebrate when President Trump signed the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (S. 1862) along with the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act, authorizing $430 million US Dollars to fight sex and labor trafficking.

Last spring youth, human rights advocates and leaders from the United States, Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean Islands converged on the US capital for the 1st Annual Youth for Human Rights North American Regional Summit to come up with solutions to human rights abuses devastating millions across North America. One of the key topics covered at the Summit was Human Trafficking and on that topic in addition to supporting education efforts, Summit youth took to the Hill to meet with Members of Congress and the Senate to encourage them to support the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act, to help fight trafficking across the country and beyond.

It is outrageous that still today, in the 21st Century, there are nearly 25 million victims of human trafficking worldwide. In the United States, more than 8,500 human trafficking cases were reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline last year alone.

After years of successful grassroots lobbying efforts, human rights advocates from across the country and the aisles working to end human trafficking and bring solutions for those abused, were gratified to see their hard work pay off as the bills they helped fight for were signed into law.

In recent weeks President Trump has signed four bills that demonstrate the bipartisan commitment to end human trafficking. These new laws will strengthen programs supporting survivors and increase resources for combating modern slavery, as well as making sure US laws are fully enforced to ensure human traffickers receive the full measure of justice they deserve.

“It is very exciting as a young person to see a bill you have worked hard for get passed into law, especially when it is a bill that has the potential to help so many victims of trafficking and prevent future generations from falling captive to this illegal slave trade,” said Erica Rodgers, the National Director for Youth for Human Rights in Washington DC. Ms. Rodgers further added “We shall continue to advocate and work to bring a final end to the crime of human trafficking. With everyone knowing and respecting each other’s human rights, people will be more aware and work to end this criminal conspiracy.”

To encourage further support of grassroots lobbyists and activists fighting to end human trafficking everywhere, January 2019 has been proclaimed National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month by the Trump administration. When signing the bills, the President called human trafficking “an urgent humanitarian issue” and further stated, “My administration is committed to leveraging every resource we have to confront this threat, to support the victims and survivors, and to hold traffickers accountable for their heinous crimes.”

Modern Day slavery is a horrific problem. Raising awareness on human rights is the necessary undercut to this and so many other human rights issues. Article four of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.” To read all of the human rights as listed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights go to: http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/ or for descriptive videos of each of the 30 human rights go to https://www.youthforhumanrights.org

About Youth for Human Rights:

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace.

Since 2001 he has split his time between Vernalis and York (fragment methods for chemical biology and industrial biotechnology). In addition, he works with UK Research Councils and consults with pharmaceutical and technology companies around the world.

On his personal invitation he mentions:
“The drug discovery field continues to undergo rapid change in response to the increased pressures of developing new therapies, reducing costs and avoiding late stage drug failure. As an industry, we continue to look for innovative methods to provide access to new target classes and to speed up and improve the drug discovery process. Although these new methods always sound compelling, it always takes some time and experience to realise their potential.

This Drug Discovery Chemistry Conference will feature presentations from scientists with expertise in many of the emerging methods and disciplines:
• Opportunities and applications for AI across the drug discovery process
• Hit ID –encoded libraries, fragments, PROTACs, macrocycles, antibodies
• Optimising the process and enabling drug discovery for challenging targets

PLUS you can also attend the post-conference workshop (20th March 2019) on Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery, which is led by Dr Nick Camp, Drug Discovery Consultant at Nick Camp Consulting Ltd
