Some causes of this disease according to Gerard Burrow, are “Diseased heart muscle, chronic high blood pressure, a heart attack, and major cardiac arrhythmia”. The causes that are listed above actually cause congestive heart failure. With having congestive heart failure, patients are examined every six months or so depending on the severity of the disease. During that examination, there may be signs of the disease, according to Gerard Burrow: “In the Heart: 1) heart enlargement, 2) Increased heart rate, in the Lungs: Crackling noises (rales), leakage of fluid from the lungs, [and] in other areas: Swelling of the skin, edema of the lower back, buildup of fluid of the abdominal cavity, increased size of liver, ascites” (181) . This disease has its own ways of revealing itself to doctors.
Here we can clearly see how Fadiman wants to show how people should treat others from a different religion. She says that she needs to “more like a Hmong” to understand their culture, religion and traditions. Doing so will help her understand why it is that they do what they do and why they have little trust on American doctors and medicine. If the doctors at the Merced hospital had tried to put themselves in Lia’s parent’s shoes to try and understand their culture they would of been able to come up with solutions that would of helped Lia more in the long run. Simply ignoring the fact that they are dealing with a completely different and trying to do what they can under the circumstances they should of been able to work with the parents.
They are less likely to seek help when ill unless the illness is encompasses their overall health such as the body, mind and the spirit.

Additional high risk behavior are also included methamphetamine, Marijuana, and oxycontin that are highly used in that
One of which being pregnancy. The article suggests to readers not to consume royal jelly while pregnant or breast-feeding because its effects have not been fully researched. Topics such as asthma and skin irritation are also brought up due to the use of royal jelly.

My grandfather is socially active and if ever he becomes socially disengaged the health care sector will try and help him find a solution where he could prevent becoming more disengaged to the public. Also, the health and social care sector still encourages elderly who are active to stay active in order to prevent social disengagement. To conclude, old age people feels that sometimes society shuts them off because they have limited set of skills but they need to make sure that they would try to avoid being socially withdrawn by being more active to prevent them from being fully disengaged.
The elderly might have a mistrust of modern medicine and due to their cultural use home medicine (Nagata et al., 2013). Furthermore, the belief in some culture and religion is that , healing comes from God and people should not have blood, chemicals, or other animal tissue placed inside the body is another barrier (The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, 2017). . Moreover, a common misconception of the flu vaccine is that it causes people to get the flu, therefore as a provided it is important to provide education to patients about common misconceptions. In educating my patient, I will state that the flu vaccine does not cause flu, although one kind of vaccine is made of the flu virus, the virus has either been weakened or killed, therefore
Besides influencing our perception of mental illness, culture also influences whether or not people seek treatment, and who they decide to seek treatment from. Who people will go to for treatment, will depend on what the cause of mental illness is perceived as, e.g. if the cause for the disorder is seen as being due to God’s wrath or evil spirits, people may be inclined to go to religious heads for treatment. Asian American mainly look to their extended family and folk healers for help during difficult times, and so professionals will probably not be visited.
SUMMARY Although cognitive behavioral therapy is known as an effective treatment for patients suffering from clinical depression. Despite this, cognitive behavioral therapy is found to not be as effective on religious patients partly due to the emphasis on values like personal autonomy and self-efficacy as necessary for mental health whereas most religious people want to depend on only God for everything. This value discrepancy is a reason why many religious individuals do not seek mental health services and why there is not a reliable sample size of religious populations in most clinical studies. A study performed by graduate professionals L. Rebecca Propst from the Department of Counseling Psychology, Graduate School of Professional Studies as well as Richard Ostrom, Philip Watkins, Terri Dean and David Mashburn from the Western Baptist Graduate School of Psychology examined how the values of cognitive behavioral therapy could be aligned with the values of religious individuals in order for them to reap the benefits of the treatment. Propst discovered that by
Similar reductions were estimated to occur in influenza-related mortality and economic costs. Why Some Parents Are Against It A number of parents fear the government forcing them to vaccinate their children. These parents are anti-vaccine for a variety of reasons. Parents built their arguments against immunization on the strength of the naturally acquired immune system. Childhood diseases were not perceived as a threat but as part of the natural way to reinforce the body.
Purpose The purpose of the study was to test whether a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of congestive heart failure could reduce the rates of readmission in elderly patients. The study focused on elderly patients because these patients have an increased risk of readmission. This increased risk of readmission is associated with factors such as social isolation and non compliance with dietary and medical prescriptions. Method The study screened patients who were admitted to the Jewish Hospital which is located in the Washington University Medical Center. All the patients who were screened for the study were 70 years or older.
Vaccinations have been promoted since 1781, vaccinations are injected for Americans to maintain a healthy life and not become ill due to disease caused from measles, mumps, polio and several other diseases. However, there are those that do not agree with getting their children vaccinated due to religious beliefs and there are some people believe vaccinations can cause birth defects. Although, those are their beliefs; however there are those that enter our nation without being vaccinated and it is ultimately putting our children at risk for contracting various diseases, for example the Disneyland measles outbreak of 2014. The United States have been promoting vaccines since 1781, when Cotton Mather, a Puritan minister, encouraged smallpox vaccination. In 1796 an English physician and scientist named Edward Jenner created the first smallpox vaccine he called it the cowpox vaccination he then used it on an eight-year-old boy.
The government should repeal the ban on marijuana in Hawaii for the sake of people’s health, to treat patients, and to cure sickness. Marijuana is not only seen as a drug, but seen as a vital medication. To some people, it’s used as a cure. They don’t use it to get “high” or to relive their teenage years, but they use it to keep themselves out of pain and suffrage. Some patients spend hundreds of dollars on medication
In the United States it is estimated that there are approximately 24 million adults with COPD (Pietrangelo, 2015). COPD is one of the leading causes of hospital admissions and one in five COPD patients who are discharged from the hospital will be readmitted within 30 days. In the United States COPD is the third most common cause of death and in 2010 it cost the United States $49.9 billion (Pietrangelo,
