The topic for the April webinar is "The Role Diet & Hydration Play in Health & Wellness."  The session will be hosted by Lou Paradise, company president, chief of research, and pain management expert.

"Many people are unaware of the importance of diet and hydration to health, wellness, and pain management," says Mr. Paradise.  "Proper hydration is vital to good health, but not all beverages are created equal.  In fact, some actually cause the body to become dehydrated.  Also, certain foods can cause inflammation, which contributes to pain issues.  Moreover, a poor diet can contribute to diabetes, heart and respiratory problems as well as compromise the immune system." 

During the webinar, participants will learn to make healthy choices:  what to eat and drink, what to avoid, and why.  This will enable individuals to take a more proactive role in their health, and discover how changing their diet can affect the way they feel.

Topical BioMedics' Pain Management Workshop series was launched in February 2015, and takes place the second Tuesday of every month.  Topics covered will include discussions on pain and the body's healing chemistries, inflammation and the immune system, and how lifestyle factors such as exercise, hydration, and nutrition affect our health.    In addition, specific conditions and ailments will be addressed, including:  diabetes; fibromyalgia; arthritis; carpal tunnel; sports injuries; Plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, and more.  Future workshops will also feature guest speakers from various health modalities, including chiropractic care, acupuncture, and nutrition.

Doctor gives tips on how to live better and happier

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Who doesn't want a life filled with thriving positivity and high-life satisfaction? Do you seek meaning and purpose in life with a healthy balance between work and life, and positive friendships and relationships?

Dr. Marsha W. Snyder explains how to do this in her new book, Positive Health: Flourishing Lives, Wellbeing in Doctors.

With a focus on solving the epidemic of ill-being in the medical profession, often beginning in the first year of medical school, Positive Health is a must-read for all professionals, student-professionals and administrators in the medical field.

"The addition of a Positive Health curriculum in medical school and as continuing medical education for doctors, will eliminate the 40 to 60-percent rate of ill-being in doctors worldwide and will encourage doctors to teach positive health to their patients, resulting in a thriving population," said Snyder.

Increasing positive health in doctors and healthcare personnel will lead to increased employee and patient satisfaction, decreased cost of care, fewer employee sick days, decreased staff turnover, more efficient and effective healthcare teams, and decreased medical errors, among numerous other benefits.
