10 Must Haves of Medical Website Design

Medical website design is not much different from designing other websites like that of a school or a boutique hotel, but it is different. These are apparently contradictory statements, but let us explain.

You can’t go wrong with medical website design if your website has these elements:

Services Tab: This should be prominently displayed towards the upper part of the website; after all, your target audience has the most interest in what you have to offer.

10 Must Haves of Medical Website Design

Before and After Photos: These will serve to substantiate all that you have claimed under the Services column and thus strengthen the target audience’s belief in you.

Physician Photograph and Biography: This is an often neglected feature of medical website design. But if you put yourself in the shoes of your patients, you will realize that it is often the credentials of a physician that inspires confidence among your target audience and motivates them to give you a call.

Contact Form: Many among your target audience may access your website at work from where they cannot make a call. Include a contact form in your medical website design to make it convenient for them to schedule an appointment or request information.

Blogs and Other Relevant Bits of Educational Resources: Including educational resources like blogs and articles in your website will not only ensure that your target audience turns to you when they are in need of medical information but also help your search engine optimization cause.

Social Media Bar: A social media bar prominently displayed on every page of your website will encourage and prompt visitors to share your content.

Patient Testimonials and Reviews: In an industry where the word-of-mouth is still the best advertising ploy, patient testimonials and reviews are the most effective alternative promotional measures.

News and Media: If you have been …

Cat Health – Treating Your Cat at Home

Basic Wound Care

Trim the fur around the affected area and clean the wound carefully, using a damp washcloth and antiseptic soap. This must be done each morning and evening for five days. The wound should remain uncovered for approximately three days, allowing it to drain. This helps to prevent abscess. Licking is a natural part of healing, so allow your cat to lick his wound for three days. After three days it is helpful to apply an antibiotic cream and outfit your cat with an e-collar to prevent licking. If your cat is lethargic or stops eating, he could have blood poisoning. See your veterinarian immediately.

Ear Mites

Ear mites are tiny white parasites feed on the skin debris of cats and may chew on the tissue within the ear canal. Your cat may find them itchy or even painful and typically responds with excessive scratching of his hears or tilting his head to one side. Ear mites leave behind a waxy brown substance that looks like coffee grounds.

Cat Health - Treating Your Cat at Home

To treat ear mites at home combine a clove of garlic with a cup of olive oil and let it sit overnight. Discard the garlic and put a few drops in each ear every third day, for three weeks.

Cat Flu

Cats can get the flu, and it makes them feel miserably. Their little noses and eyes run and become swollen, and they typically begin sneezing.

It is important to keep your cat eating while she recovers. You may need to warm his food or add a little garlic to make it more palatable. Take him into the bathroom with you when showering, so he can breath in the humidity. Using a soft warm cloth, wipe his eyes and nose as needed. Each day give him 250 mg of vitamin …

Online Health Business Helps Stay at Home Mum Holiday in the Caribbean

Janice, a stay at home Mum had been eyeing up a holiday spot in the Caribbean for months and months. The spot had everything her family would ever want in a special holiday as it was a Flintstones Themed Hotel with swimming pools and a golf course across the road. But she did not know how her two children aged 7 and 10 and husband were going to afford this. Then one day it hit her…. and she has never looked back.

Her 10 year old daughter needed help with homework on healthy eating. The pair of them were looking online for inspiration. After searching for a while they finally came up with suitable information for this homework. Once the daughter was in bed Janice decided to do some further research on “health” and found that there was a huge range of topics that people were searching for answers on. For example, how to loose weight, acne products for teenagers, advice and products for a huge range of illnesses and symptoms  all of a sudden it appeared; an online health business. She could not believe her eyes. She was thinking a health business could be a good idea to help those in  to be online as well. You can reach people all over the world instead of just locally.

Today, many people are buying and selling goods and services online. People choose this concept because the goods and services reach people all around the world, are generally cheaper and you can buy and sell whenever you want – even in your pajamas if you like!!

Janice read and re-read this business idea, thinking about it for days. Then she decided to buy it and try it. She has made a steady income and her whole family have reaped …

So, if you want to be successful and have continuing motivation throughout your journey to reach your weight loss goals, whatever they may be, then I strongly recommend you do the following on the very first day…

First, Make The First Day…

The best day! What I mean by that is you must put forth maximum effort to make your first day of your journey the most successful in terms of you doing everything there is that is healthy…

This means waking up at a time that would have given you a full nights rest (7-8 hours), making sure you eat a healthy breakfast, thoroughly following whatever diet plan you downloaded, drinking plenty of water throughout the day (I recommend 1/2 your body weight in ounces), doing a good workout, and then going to bed at a reasonable time.

When you make the first day the most successful day, this sets the stage for ongoing motivation to stay consistent with reaching your goals!

On the other hand, if the first day of your plan is not successful because you skipped your workout, you skipped breakfast, you gave in to …

What Exercise Does to Keep Your Body Healthy

A cheap way to increase your life span and get better help is aerobic exercise. It does not have to cos you thousands of dollars or many hours of your time to keep fit. A half an hour of aerobic exercise about three to four times a week might be enough to stay in shape. Below are some ways regular exercise makes your health better.

It exercises your heart! Your heart is like any other muscle in that it becomes stronger and larger thanks to exercise. It gains better ability to pump blood through the body with every beat and has less strain keeping up with its higher levels.

It assists you in losing weight. Your cholesterol levels go down. Overweight people who have trouble losing weight can still get many heart benefits thanks to exercise. Just few hours of training each week can give you huge benefits.

Regular aerobic exercise will also lower your risk for type 2 diabetes since it lowers blood sugar, improves your sensitivity for insulin and makes your heart much stronger.

It strengthens your muscles and tones your entire body. The exercise not only helps your heart, it reduces blood pressure and increases your ability to store molecules of energy like fats and carbohydrates within the muscles. This makes your body more enduring. It also dilates the blood vessels in the fibers of your muscles which makes the blood flow better.

Since your lungs are also muscles, they receive big benefits from this. Also, regular exercise increases the amount of red blood cells in your body. Red blood cells transport oxygen, so people who exercise often have low risk for heart disease.

So be sure to follow a training program that is fun and beneficial for you – and remember that a little …
