Lifeline Screening: Leading The Nation In Preventative Healthcare

Founded in 1993, and based in Austin, TX, is the privately ran prevention and wellness company, Lifeline Screening. This company is the leading provider of preventative health screenings to detect early risk for health problems. Across the nation this company operates community-based health screening services.

There are 3 types of preventative health screenings that they offer. All of the ultrasound and EKG screenings are easy, affordable, painless and convenient. So convenient in fact, that they require little to no preparation.

The ultrasound screenings, often referred to as a sonography, is a technique that produces image structure in the body through the use of sound waves. This is done by transmitting high-frequency sound waves to the area of interest in the body, and recording the returning echo’s. Lifeline Screening uses state-of-the-art Doppler color flow ultrasound technology. Bone mineral screening, ankle-brachial index screening, carotid artery disease screening, and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening are all done effectively and accurately by this equipment.

Another type of screening offered in some locations is called finger-stick blood screenings. These help to identify important risk factors for diabetes and heart disease. They are conducted by gently pricking the soft pad of the finger and taking a few drops of blood. The instruments used are FDA approved, lab-accurate and used across the country in major hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and laboratories. Results from this screening are usually provided in less than ten minutes. There are four types of blood screenings available by Lifeline Screening.

These are:
Complete lipid panel screening to measure cholesterol
Glucose screening to measure blood sugar levels
High sensitivity c-reactive protein screening to measure levels of a protein that is an indicator for cardiovascular disease
Elevated liver enzymes screening to measure levels of certain liver enzymes which are an indicator of liver injury.

Lastly, but certainly not least, is the limited electrocardiograph. An EKG is conducted to detect an irregular heartbeat. This screening is non-invasive, quick, and requires no removal of clothing or preparation.

Lifeline Screening prides itself and is committed to detecting early risk for healthcare problems. They use the best equipment to provide the best results, resulting in satisfied patients nationwide.

The Success of Organo Gold

The coffee industry is an exponentially growing business that has been popular among individuals for thousands of years. With the industry still growing, new companies are finding new niches to fit themselves into and to grow a new company. One new niche is the niche of healthy coffee that provides that energy boost as well as a healthy overall feeling in both the mind as well as the body. Coffee is currently one of the most popular drinks in the world not just for the regular energy boost, but also for the many tastes, textures, and even temperatures that it can be consumed in.

In 2008, a new company called Organo Gold created a new type of coffee that would reinvent the idea of coffee. Organo Gold had the idea to fuse together hot beverage products such as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate with a four thousand year old ancient Chinese herb known as Ganoderma. This herb has been incorporated with Organo Gold products because of its unique property of eliminating and mental or physical diseases. This elimination can be applied to weight, low energy levels, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, asthma, kidney dysfunction, as well as migraines.

All these beneficial aspects of Ganoderma make Organo Gold not only a delicious product, but the product to choose in order to have a healthy living life. Ganoderma is traditionally used in Eastern medicine and has been broken down in such as way in a natural process to be of a powder substance to be added to Organo Gold products. Bernardo Chua, CEO and co-founder of Organo Gold, is proud to say that Organo Gold has the only organic Ganoderma plantation in North America.

In recent news, the Organo Gold company has continued to grow on the international level. Organo Gold has recently announced its new branch located in Turkey which now marks Organo Gold’s access to Europe and Asia through Turkey. Bernardo Chua states that Organo Gold was created as a simple and delicious way for the world population to live a healthy and happy life. Bernardo Chua has more plans to expand his company and is proud of his team that continues to demonstrate integrity, leadership, as well as excellence in every business deal made.  Bernardo talks the future of the company on Twitter very often.

California’s Premier Spot To Spend Your Golden Years

Choosing to move from your apartment or home to a senior living facility can be contributed to many factors. Most seniors choose to move because their house has gotten too big for them to care for and the large space is unnecessary, but by that time in their lives many seniors are in need of daily assistance. The negative reputation given to assisted living facilities can create a sense of uneasiness, but these facilities all require a standard of living across the board. However, like apartment buildings and neighborhoods there are premier spots to spend your golden years, and one particular residential community has stood the test of time since it opened its doors.

The Manse on Marsh has become a coveted and sought after community for seniors in California. Located in San Luis Obispo this lively community has received twelve awards from 2001-2010 ranging from Best Retirement Community two years in a row to winning an outstanding contributions award. Owned by Chris Skiff, Manse on Marsh has gone above and beyond the general standards of senior living by offering a wide variety of added services as well as traditional ones. After graduating UCLA with honors Skiff teamed up with a major developer and helped build affordable apartments for seniors at the age of twenty-three. Since then he has been involved in 20 seniors communities and has run Manse on Marsh for fifteen years.

Manse on Marsh offers two activities for those wanting to become residents. They offer an independent living program as well as an assisted living program, but no matter which program you enroll in every resident gets an assistant pendant they can use at any time 24/7. With the assisted living program the assistance given is dependent on the individual, and it can be increased or decreased at any time upon request. Their staff includes a registered nurse available 24/7 as well as a certified medical technician if needed. Regular “check-ins” are performed five times a day with discretion along with general services such as the delivery of meal tickets, bed making, and evening trash removal.

The housing options at Manse on Marsh sets them apart from traditional communities as the blog outlines. Residents can choose attached studio apartments, one or two bedroom suites, private cottages, and even detached homes with up to three bedrooms. Outside their luxurious homes they offer two Bistros where you can use your meal tickets, a home theater, nail and hair salon, rooftop patios, and a library with computer and internet access.
