Stroke Victim Calls Neurosurgery and Yoga a Life-Saving Combination
When Jamie Falstrault’s undiagnosed brain aneurysm ruptured while in his Manasquan home, he and his family feared for his life. “I was having bad headaches and was diagnosed with a sinus infection three times,” Jamie recalled. “The next thing I know, I’m disoriented and nauseous – and being rushed to the hospital.” At Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Overlook Medical Center, Jamie began seeing Dr. Ronald Benitez, a board-certified neurosurgeon at Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists and specialist in brain aneurysms and strokes. “Sudden, highly severe headaches are a telltale sign that an aneurysm has – or soon will – rupture … and that you should seek immediate medical attention,” advises Dr. Benitez. During Jamie’s five-month-long hospital stay, Dr. Benitez performed multiple procedures, including surgery to clip his aneurysm, insertion of a shunt and several angioplasties to relieve the narrowing of cerebral arteries. While in the hospital, Jamie suffered a massive stroke that paralyzed the entire left side of his body. Jamie spent six months in outpatient rehabilitation but continued to struggle physically. “Despite my best efforts, I was weak, and I was having terrible tremors, making it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do everyday tasks — from writing my name to […]
Sinus Congestion by Advanced PMR
Have the variations in the weather recently been causing your allergies to flare up? Are the people around you sharing their germs? Did you eat so much cheese and dairy over the holidays and now your head feels like a slice of brie? If so, consider Acupuncture to help you breathe again! Acupuncture can be a very effective way of relieving sinus congestion, however it is imperative to go beyond relieving the symptoms to discover and eliminate the cause of the problem. If you have chronic sinus problems, it is important you consult a doctor. Constipation, a poor diet, or lack of exercise can contribute to sinus problems. The elimination of dairy and sugar from your diet for two weeks (or more) can help you decide if dietary changes may help you manage your sinus congestion. Sinus congestion can be the result of stress, worry, grief, or guilt. Strong emotions that are unresolved can lead to muscle tension within the body. Acupuncture can help relieve this tension in your face, chest, and neck allowing your sinuses to clear. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, sinus congestion can be relieved for varying periods, with just one treatment. Structurally, the sinuses […]
Instant Confidence Ramp up your smile with Zoom Whitening.
Scientists say our brains are zapped with an instant mood boost when we smile, and that boost is reinforced when others smile back. Further, whiter teeth can have a direct effect on our social and professional interactions, and they’re now easy to achieve through our Zoom! Whitening procedure. In study results transcending gender, age, income, education, employment and marital status, 58 percent of participants were more likely to be hired after whitening their teeth, while 53 percent received higher salary offers. Sixty-one percent were deemed more confident, and 54 percent generated more interest from others in terms of further interactions or dating. What Is Zoom! Whitening: Zoom! teeth whitening is a process that uses a gel that is activated with a special UV light. Your eyes, lips and gums are completely covered and protected throughout the entire procedure. The procedure consists of three 15-minute sessions. A fresh layer of whitening gel is applied after each session as the old gel is removed from your teeth. What results can you expect? Dr. Friscia will measure your initial shade and final shade after the procedure. There’s no real way to predict how many shades lighter your teeth will get as many factors […]
Simple, But So Often Overlooked, Advice: Listen to Your Body
Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists (ANS) urges you to listen to your body. Don’t ignore your symptoms. Today, an increasing number of Americans are doing just that – with potentially devastating results. It’s not uncommon to ignore a sudden, severe headache; dizziness; tingling; or loss of balance. These are just some of the symptoms – that when disregarded – can lead to significant medical problems. To highlight this simple, but so often overlooked, advice, ANS doctors and their patient Ann Thompson, are speaking out. Ann, an assistant nurse manager in a New Jersey hospital emergency room, listened to patients nearly every day for the past 40 years … but she didn’t listen to her own symptoms. Generally healthy, Ann suddenly began experiencing what felt like a headache and a toothache. Then, when she was driving, she lost vision in her left eye for a few seconds. Several days later, the same thing happened. At work, she noticed flashing white lights in her eye. Ann meant to call the doctor, but didn’t. Two days later, Ann felt tingling in her hand and began dropping things. She knew something was wrong, but refused to admit it. “My brother insisted I go to the hospital,” […]

5 tips to get in front of the pet hair in your home
(BPT) – From their loyal ways to their silly antics, pets bring so much joy to homes. While you wouldn’t trade any of the cuddles and welcome-home slobbers, one thing most pet owners don’t find quite as lovable is all the pet hair! When you live with a furry friend, it’s inevitable that there will be pet hair everywhere—hiding under tables, collecting in corners and clinging to clothes and furniture. Cleaning up after it all can be hard work—but the good news is that there are some ways to keep it under control. With a few simple steps, you can keep your home clean and free from pet hair (at least until that next shake). 1) Embrace your inner groomer. The best way to deal with pet hair in your home is to stop it even before it starts. Regularly grooming your pet will help control pet hair and shedding. Get into the habit of brushing your pet each day. Chances are, they’ll enjoy the extra attention, and you’ll be able to collect and dispose of their hair before it gets everywhere else. If your pet needs extra care, take them to a groomer every couple of months to really […]
5 cold-weather hacks for winter driving
(BPT) – As drivers bundle up to take on Old Man Winter this season, having a few tricks up your sleeve can be a big help in keeping your cool on the road. Here are five hacks for battling the elements and staying safe on the roads. Got stuck? Snow problem! Hazardous winter weather requires that drivers take additional precautions. According to the latest Hankook Tire Gauge Index, 72 percent of drivers indicated they would not want to drive in icy conditions. Further, 84 percent of Americans recognize the dangers of black ice, the most dangerous weather condition for driving. If you find yourself stuck in the snow and ice, apply a bag of cat litter or sand under your wheels to provide much-needed traction to get out of a snowy situation. As an added bonus, the additional weight over the rear axle (especially for trucks and rear-wheel-drive cars) will further add traction. Floor mats can also come in handy. Place them under your tires in the direction you’re looking to travel. The mats create a mini runway of traction for your vehicle. Here comes the sun When the snow starts to pile on the driveway, nearly a quarter of […]
Starting a Career as a Medical Assistant
Want to break into the medical field but don’t necessarily have the time or resources to get a full medical degree? You’re in luck, because there are plenty of options available for people in your situation. Medical Assistants are one of the fastest growing professions according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. In fact, between 2016 and 2026, there is an expected 29% increase in job growth for Medical Assistants, which is much higher than the average across all occupations. In this article, we will break down what it takes to be a Medical Assistant and what roles you might expect to fill at a Medical Assistant job in a variety of work environments. Education and Training While a job as a Medical Assistant typically only requires a high school diploma or GED, employers are much more likely to select job applicants who have had hands-on training with real medical equipment. This type of experience can be achieved through an accredited Medical Assistant certification program. Another important part of Medical Assistant career training is the completion of an internship at a medical facility. An internship is a perfect chance to get […]
Start the year strong with this high-performance vegetable
(BPT) – Chasing a place on the podium isn’t possible without the proper fuel for your body. Whether you’re going for the gold or just passing the pigskin in honor of the big game, athletes and amateurs alike need the right combination of nutrients to take on their training, and sports nutritionists across the nation are recommending one vegetable in particular to get them there — potatoes! Here’s why: * Carbohydrate — Potatoes are a nutrient-dense vegetable with 26 grams of quality carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are important for optimal physical and mental performance as the primary fuel for your brain and a key source of energy for muscles. And, because your body’s own stores of carbohydrates are limited and may be depleted — even in a single session of intense and/or prolonged exercise — it’s important to replenish them. * Potassium — Did you know a medium-sized potato with the skin has more potassium than a medium-sized banana? A medium (5.2 ounce) skin-on potato contains 620 mg of potassium, an important electrolyte that aids in muscle, cardiovascular and nervous system function. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines mention potassium as an under-consumed nutrient of concern, and recommend consuming foods with high levels of […]
Say goodbye to winter blues with vitamin D-rich foods
(BPT) – Winter got you down? Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is estimated to affect 10 million Americans, according to Psychology Today. Another 10 percent to 20 percent may have mild SAD. Even if you don’t have diagnosed SAD, it’s not uncommon to have bouts of the winter blues. There are many reasons people experience a “winter funk:” cold weather, little sunlight, shorter days, limited outdoor activity, etc. Additionally, between the months of November and March, the lack of vitamin D absorption from the sun can be taxing on your immune system and may also be contributing to your winter blues. Dubbed “the happy vitamin” by some researchers, vitamin D could be the key to turning seasonal frowns upside-down. Maintaining vitamin D levels during the cold winter months may help keep you healthy during cold and flu season while also boosting your mood. What’s more, vitamin D may help you maintain a healthy weight. It’s no secret that many people experience weight gain due to the flood of comfort foods available during cooler months. This, paired with lower physical activity, causes many people to put on a few winter pounds. According to a study quoted in Men’s Health, a University of […]
Hacks for healthier holiday entertaining
(BPT) – Decadent meals are often part of celebrations, but for those looking for a healthier holiday, it can feel like you must choose between your nutrition goals and the foods you love. Swearing off your favorite seasonal foods could make you feel like a Scrooge, but a few simple cooking and entertaining hacks will let you enjoy the treats you love while keeping your health top of mind. Amazing appetizers It might seem counterintuitive, but eating before a big meal can be a smart step for healthy living. Try creating a crudité platter with a variety of fresh veggies. If you make dip, swap mayonnaise and sour cream for Greek yogurt, which provides similar flavor and texture without the calories. Fill up on this healthy pre-meal snack and you’ll eat less during dinnertime. Better baking Replace half the sugar in baking recipes with Stevia In The Raw Bakers Bag, a zero calorie sweetener made with extracts from the sweet leaves of the stevia plant. By keeping half of the regular sugar, you still achieve the proper browning, rising and caramelizing only sugar can provide, but the swap allows you to cut calories without sacrificing sweetness. In fact, up to […]

Chelsea Bringing Cloud Technology Innovations to Resident Care in Assisted Living
Change can be slow and painful in many corners of our lives, but perhaps nowhere is change simultaneously feared and welcomed as it is in patient care. Whether it’s in a hospital, long term care or assisted living setting, new innovations in the way we care for people both disrupt our established protocols and improve them. Chelsea Senior Living, a New Jersey based company with 16 assisted living properties and several more on the way, has phased-in cloud-based record keeping for everything from residents’ prescriptions to their medical history. The electronic Medical Administration Record (eMAR) system Chelsea uses has been implemented over the last three years in all of its buildings. It allows nurses to interactively keep tabs on each resident’s medical profile using a wireless tablet anywhere in the building or off site through a secure internet connection. “They can instantly see each resident’s last vital signs, medications and certain medical assessments,” said Pat Banta, Regional Health Services Director for Chelsea Senior Living. “They can pick up new orders and discontinue old orders do it without being tied to a desk. If something changes, they can make the change do it instantly on their tablet.” The eMAR system has […]
Make ‘em & Break ‘em (it’s just something we do)
MAKE ‘EM & BREAK ‘EM (IT’S JUST SOMETHING WE DO) It’s another New Year and that means it’s time for our annual ritual, Making Resolutions. It also means that whatever resolution you make, you will surely break, although I am not sure about the timing. Some resolutions last one month, others as long as three months, but not too many extend much longer, barring a miracle. And, as if you need a reminder to participate in this annual make a resolution insanity, you will surely be inundated to this ritual with tons of advertising. Newspaper ads, radio and TV commercials will continually bombard us that “It’s time to start anew, it’s time to make your New Year Resolutions” (as if your life will drastically change by making a resolution). As we have seen, most of these reminder advertisements come from various weight reducing products, quickly get-in shape programs and lots of feel good gyms. All setup to tell you that the best way to begin a New Year is to reduce your weight and get into shape. Of course, this is not a bad resolution to make. Rather this is important and many of these wellness programs and products truly […]
