Is there such a thing called 'sub-optimal health'? Is there science to back it up?

Is there such a thing called 'sub-optimal health'? Is there science to back it up?

The term is used: in the United States, but seemingly not as formally as in China where sub-health is a synonym. It attempts to describe a state of being neither healthy nor ill, but not feeling really well; not a precise condition.Symptoms include fatigue, chronic aches/pains, trouble sleeping nervousness, poor mood. Criteria (such as increased BMI, blood sugar, etc) have been developed/used principally in China. ...Read more

Does someone have some useful tips to help me remember what I learn in my human anatomy course and in my future health science classes?

Does someone have some useful tips to help me remember what I learn in my human anatomy course and in my future health science classes?

Remember Anatomy: Not strictly a medical problem, but it is an old medical school challenge. Go to Amazon and look under "Anatomy Mnemonics" to find a whole range of cram tools that people have used to remember obscure terms, concepts and associations.

Good luck. ...Read more

Some scientific studies say red wine 1 glass is good for health! Some say any alcohol is bad! What's truth? How can it be science if its conflicting?

Some scientific studies say red wine 1 glass is good for health! Some say any alcohol is bad! What's truth? How can it be science if its conflicting?

This is a great: example of how many things in life, especially health, are not totally black or white in spite of applying a rigorous scientific method.Best evidence to date suggests that red wine contains substances,i.e. reservatrol that are healthy.Medical guidelines say 1 drink a day for men/2 for women is fine.Those who say "drink nothing" worry folks can't stop there and are at risk for alcoholism.

I will be volunteering at a mental health institute I have to receive CPI training what is that? I know its crisis prevention is that restraint?

CPI training: CPI training is used to help staff learn how to effectively defuse anxious, hostile, or violent behaviors as early as possible. It is designed to reduce harm to patients and staff. CPI is not always restraint techniques. The key word is "defuse". CPI training is a good idea for you if you are volunteering.

I'm considering buying the health and ancestry package from 23&Me. On a likely scale from 1-10, how much of a scam is this for health planning?

I'm considering buying the health and ancestry package from 23&Me. On a likely scale from 1-10, how much of a scam is this for health planning?

Not sure: Hi Willie, I don't know much about these DNA testing services so I can't provide an opinion. I personally haven't created treatment plans for patients based on information from any of these types of tests, I only take a standard verbal family history to give insight to genetics of a patient. Perhaps some other health tap doctors can weigh in. ...Read more

What is a good health ?

What is a good health ?

It's all in the mind: Good health is a general sense of well being and freedom from illness, injury or pain. Health is often defined differently by doctors and patients. I think it entirely possible to have many illnesses and injuries yet remain "healthy." I have seen many patients who refuse to become ill or sick despite severe adversity. Health care providers love to see patients like that! ...Read more
