How do I improve the health and fitness of my boyfriend and I?

Friday, September 24th, 2010

My boyfriend and I are both wanting to lose some weight and improve overall health. We don’t live together, but I want to plan some sort of fitness challenge for us to do at the same time. Any idea of how to do this when we live an hour apart? We see each other on weekends, so that is easy, but I need something for the weekdays.

First let me ask. What are your activity levels like? and how much weight do you want to lose? The reason why I ask is because I’m a Beachnody coach and we have programs designed for all different goals, like loosing weight, to getting fit and having toned muscles.
Next is how much time and effort are you willing to put into it? Reason being I can help get you in shape within 3 months. My wife an I done it, and I’ve helped dozens do the same.
There’s a science to it but you have to dedicated to see maximum results. Now even if you were to "cheat" meaning eat junk food every now and then you can still lose weight but it will just take that much longer. As for the being apart you both can do the same workout routines and make it a competition like what my wife and I do. We’re very competitive and we push each other everyday trying to out run or do more crunches than the other.It makes it fun. I’ll tell you what here’s a link to my website take a look at the programs and if you decide that this is what yo want to do, just email or call me and I’ll walk you through it. Deal? Well I wish you and your BF good luck and I look forward to hearing from you.

How are illegal immigrants getting free health care?

Friday, September 24th, 2010

I heard in a lot of debate about illegal immigrants and how they care free services such as health care. I became a U.S citizen two years ago and I’ve been trying to find cheaper and quality health care, but I couldn’t. I researched free health care online, but can’t find it. I don’t have health insurance, so whenever I visit the doctor, I either pay upfront if it’s about $200 or they send me the bills if its way higher. So how are illegal immigrants getting free health care?

First off, illegal aliens are not immigrants. Immigrants follow laws. They get free health care by not paying bills when going to emergency rooms, giving false names and addresses etc… It also cost American taxpayers over $6000.00 per birth for each anchor baby born. That is if there are no complications.

In a recent year in Colorado, the state’s emergency Medicaid program paid an estimated $30 million in hospital and physician delivery costs for about 6,000 illegal immigrant mothers – average of $5,000 per baby. Those 6,000 births to illegal aliens represent 40% of the births paid for by Medicaid in Colorado. Those 6,000 babies immediately became U.S. citizens and qualified for full Medicaid services, with a cost yet to be tabulated.

The federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) mandates that U.S. hospitals with emergency-room services must treat anyone who requires care, including illegal aliens. Medical service for Americans in affected communities is being severely damaged as hospitals absorb more than $200 million in unreimbursed costs. Some emergency rooms have shut down because they cannot afford to stay open. Local tax-paying Americans are either denied medical care or have to wait in long lines for service as the illegals flood the facilities. In California, the losses are calculated to be about $79 million, with $74 million in Texas, $31 million in Arizona, and $6 million in New Mexico.

These costs are staggering. The Cochise County, Arizona Health Department spends as much as 30 percent of its annual $9 million budget on illegal aliens. The Copper Queen Hospital in Bisbee, Arizona, has spent $200,000 in uncompensated services out of a net operating budget of $300,000. The University Medical Center in Tucson may lose as much as $10 million and the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, also in Tucson, has lost $1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2002.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION HEALTHCARE COSTS AFFECT YOU!
Published 06/01/2010 – CST By Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.

In both Tucson and Dallas where I have practiced medicine, hospitals are struggling under massive costs of uncompensatedmedical services for uninsured people who, by federal law, cannot be turned away for lack of insurance or ability to pay.

How much does this uncompensated care actually cost taxpayers? The incredible answer: no one knows.

We only have “estimates” of the costs to taxpayers to treat illegal immigrants because hospitals and public health clinics do not ask for proof of citizenship before providing care.

What are consequences to taxpaying citizens?

1. Increased cost and reduced access to trauma care. Tucson has lost all but one Level I Trauma Center to serve all of southern Arizona, in large part due to massive, unsustainable losses from uncompensated care. Auto accidents involving overloaded vans of illegal aliens happen regularly in southern Arizona. Injured are flown by air ambulance to University Medical Center’s Trauma Center and treated with state of the art care….all at taxpayer expense.

2. A registered nurse involved with the Pima County health system since the 1970’s who must remain anonymous because of her role, said she has never seen any staff member at either El Rio Clinic or Pima County Health Department ask for proof of citizenship before providing free medical services (immunizations, Well Baby checks, food stamps, WIC services, birth control, and even elective abortions). Costs are paid by taxpayers. When funds are depleted, low income American citizens have fewer services and longer waits as a result.

3. This same RN also said: “I personally know Mexican men who married 16 year old girls, got them pregnant, brought them to Tucson for the baby to become a US citizen. They livein Mexico but come here for their health care. Taxpayers pay for this medical care many ways, at the Public Health Department, and with school nurses who provide care.”

4. Uncompensated medical services for illegal immigrants mean higher premiums for all of us due to cost shifting among all third party payers. To cover the deficits from “free” medical services they provide, the administration at University Physicians Health System Kino campus is analyzing how much to increase employeehealth insurance premiums as of July 1.

5. Obamacare cuts benefits to American citizens: $500 billion in Medicare cuts and slashing the Medicare Advantage program. Medicare Advantage, chosen by one in five seniors, is the most popular plan for low and moderate income seniors, and covers about half of our Hispanic or African-American elderly. My patients on Medicare have worked and paid into the system over their working careers, yet these cuts mean less health­care available to them now. We certainly cannot afford to cover those here illegally.

6. Hospitals in Tucson and Dallas also provide uncompensated (“free”) maternity services to pregnant women here illegally. Their babies then become US citizens entitled to all of the services available for low income American families – food stamps, WIC, immunizations, office visits, medications, etc. This drives up costs to all of us: higher premiums for private insurance companies, and higher taxes for government insurance like Arizona’s Medicaid (AHCCCS).

7. Professional estimates are that over halfof the pregnant women served at Parkland Hospital in Dallas are in this country illegally. With over 16,000 deliveries a year, Parkland is one of the nation’s busiest maternity services with prenatal clinics for low income women to receive free prenatal care, nutrition, medication, birthing classes, child care classes, and free supplies (formula, diapers, bottles, car seats). Taxpayers pay the bills.

Can HGH injections make you grow taller if your leg bones have fused?

Friday, September 24th, 2010

I heard a study that said HGH could still make you gain some height at any age somewhat because even if your leg bones have fused HGH would still stimulate the spinal cord bones to grow longer could be up to 2 inches of added height since they never fuse. Is there any truth to this? Thanks

NO.
Once the epiphesil plates have fused thats your lot.
The only way to become taller is with Orthopaedic intervention which involvess breaking your bones and wiring you to a device which you twist every day to make the gap bigger. Bone fills in the gap.
A veruy painful, time consuming and expensive procedure.

What are good scores for the Presidents fitness challenge for army rotc for a 17 year old girl?

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

I am a 17 year old female and I am applying for an army rotc scholarship. My scores for the presidents fitness challenge are 31 sit-ups, 20 push-ups, and 6:44 mile. Are these scores good enough for a scholarship? I’m getting really nervous about this.

You’re scores are great. Just work on your sit-ups. I’m 17 (female), did 21 push up, 52 sit-ups, mile in 9:30 and earned a full scholarship. You’re definitely in the clear as long as you have the academics and extra curriculars to back you up. You’re interview is also incredibly important. They won’t rule you out based on one thing.

You’re scores are definitely good enough for a scholarship.

How does Universal Health Care motivate individuals to adopt healthier lifestyles?

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

At a time in our country when two out of three adults are overweight, how does providing state-run health care encourage people to take better care of themselves? Look how unhealthy Americans are when health care is at a premium. Imagine our condition when it’s doled out like welfare.

Because the quality of care within the Universal system is so bad you certainly don’t want to have to use it. Therefore you will live longer by taking better care of yourself.

What steps should I take or what HGH do you recommend for height growth?

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

I’m 18 and I’m 5ft 8 inches and I feel like I’ve been cheated and deserve to be at least 6ft like most people in my family. I have the intensity and personality of a 6ft person. I must be taller, what should/can I do?……Any personal experiences etc just let me know. Thanks… HGH ( Human Growth Hormones) for those who don’t remember or just don’t know.

I wouldn’t recommend human growth hormone at all, it’s side effects are nasty. Once you’ve stopped growing unfortunately you can’t really make yourself taller. There is a strategy that involves an intense stretching routine that increases the length between the vertbrate in your spine, i’m not sure on specifics, but from what I recall it can add an inch or 3 if done regularly, but you’ll lose the height if you stop the routine for too long.
