Is he someone who, if you have different symptoms, would remain involved until you two could wrap around the problem and determine the best treatment plan? When you develop this relationship you forge a bond with someone who has invested in your long-term well-being – and that you will follow so you can take preventive screenings that are right for you.

Strength of TheraHoney HD allows it to be easily cut, easily placed and easily removed from the wound in one piece, even in the tunneling wounds. It is porous and permits the passage of exudate into the secondary dressing. Fenestrations permit this passage of exudate to help reduce the risk of maceration in the wound bed. TheraHoney HD features 200% more Manuka honey than TheraHoney Sheet and is indicated for use on wounds with any drainage level.

You too, at some point in your life may find yourself taking care of aging parents or elderly members in your family, in the same way they cared for you.

Remember, it’s not easy for your elders, who were once independent, to become dependent on you or on others for their basic care.

You can never say what turn life may take. God forbid if a parent has a sudden accident or slips in the bathroom – would you really be in a state to handle such a situation?

I guess like me, you too might scramble to find emergency numbers or call the insurance company, and locate old hospital bills.

With all this chaos, you also need to handle your daily work, family and kids. Life can surely be tough at times, so you need to be geared up to face it – isn’t it?

Every wonder how families stay healthy, fit and thin? We asked Dr. Oz for his tips on how to build a healthy family strategy. Dr. Oz says families (like the Carroll’s, pictured) that make healthy lifestyle choices together, stay healthy together. Here’s his game plan for your family.

To stay at a healthy weight, you have to eat, not starve yourself. “If you don’t fuel up regularly, you’ll become insatiably hungry, causing the ‘hunger’ hormone, ghrelin, to spike,” Dr. Oz says. “The problem is, it takes a half-hour for that hormone to return to normal once you start to eat, but in that 30 minutes you’ll likely chow through many more calories than if you hadn’t eaten on an empty stomach.”
