Relief beyond cold compresses

While I won’t tell you that you’ll never need to see a doctor or take prescription medication again, I can say with confidence that for me, Migraguard has been a total game-changer.”

— Jon

GALENA, IL, USA, June 24, 2019 / — The makers of a new migraine relief product are pleased to announce they are providing an alternative treatment option to individuals suffering from debilitating headaches.

The product, called Migraguard, can provide headache sufferers with a safe and effective natural roll-on solution to help relieve pain. It combines the powerful benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy to quickly relieve headaches.

“It’s no secret that chronic headaches are disruptive,” says Jon, one of Migraguard’s developers. “The crippling pain will put you down for hours, keeping you away from your job and family while you grapple with the discomfort.”

With Migraguard, however, it can be possible to ease the discomfort of headaches through local application to the head and temples. As the product is absorbed into the whole body, it penetrates deeper to attack migraine pain without the use of drugs or narcotics.

Migraguard provides users with a host of benefits and features, including:

• The Migraguard formula uses the best in all-natural Peppermint, Spearmint, Lavender, and Roman Chamomile essential oils, along with fractionated coconut oil.

• Migraguard’s quadruple-action formula takes effect within minutes. Molecules from the essential oils interact directly with the nerve cells and block head-pounding pain signals.

• The body quickly absorbs Migraguard’s active ingredients, reaping the benefits of its anti-inflammatory and anti-pain properties. Newfound comfort is simply an added bonus.

• Simple application enables users to carry product around without the hassle of pill containers for on-the-go relief. Migraguard is applied in seconds to the temples, forehead, back of neck, ears, wrists, and even bottoms of feet.

• Can be used day or night. Since Migraguard is made from 100% therapeutic-grade, natural ingredients, it is highly effective and non-drowsy.

“As someone who suffers from migraines myself, I have certainly used this product,” states Jon. “While I won’t tell you that you’ll never need to see a doctor or take prescription medication again, I can say with confidence that for me, Migraguard has been a total game-changer.”

Dr. Frank Roach Atlanta

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, June 24, 2019 / — A seasoned dentist in Atlanta, GA, Dr. Frank Roach has spent decades providing state of the art solutions to meet his patient’s varying oral care needs. Striving to offer only the most effective whitening solutions, he provides industry-leading GLO teeth-whitening treatments from his offices.

Dr. Frank Roach stays at the cutting edge of tech advances in the dental hygiene field to ensure his patients receive top-quality care for their teeth. He’s seasoned in breakthrough dental implants and revolutionary office tools such as the Omnicam, which delivers 3D models of patients’ teeth and eliminates the need for impression trays. When delivering the best results for a patient the best results possible, most patients require a teeth whitening procedure.

To deliver the most specialized, efficient, and convenient teeth-whitening solutions for his patients, Dr. Frank Roach offers GLO treatments at his Atlanta offices.

“The GLO series of teeth-whitening kits and solutions acts faster than typical over-the-counter kits and provides outstanding results,” says Dr. Frank Roach. “The treatments require very little from users and almost always there is no discomfort.”

Through GLO, Dr. Frank Roach helps his patients control the shade of their teeth whitening so that results never look unnatural or blotchy. Between a series of liquid solutions and the advanced GLO device, patients can reveal whiter, healthier teeth in minutes.

The GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening Device is a Class 1 Medical Device and has been registered with the FDA, so users know they’re getting a quality, safe product that has undergone thorough testing.

The GLO Vial whitening gel used in treatment is 6% hydrogen peroxide, which is equivalent to 18% carbamide peroxide and leaves out the harmful breakdown byproducts. The hydrogen peroxide solution dissolves safely into oxygen and water as it evaporates in the mouth during treatments. Certified and experienced dentists such as Dr. Frank Roach may offer higher concentrations of GLO whitening gel depending on each specific case and desired results.

The GLO brand has even created offshoots of their own product to meet diverse needs and deliver easy, user-friendly applications that can be performed at home or in a dentist’s office. The latest in the line, GLO Lit, is the next generation of GLO Brilliant, which is the brand’s original teeth whitening device. Both devices use the same patented teeth whitening light & heat acceleration technology, mouthpiece, and GLO Vial whitening gel. However, GLO Lit adds a new Bluetooth-enabled Power Pack that pairs with the GLO Whitening App so users can control the process right from their smartphones.

“Whether they want to perform teeth whitening at home or in-office, GLO offers a fitting kit that’s as user-friendly as it is effective at revealing brilliant teeth,” says Dr. Frank Roach.

Laura Powell Earns Ayurveda Certification After Years of Coursework

Laura Kathryn Powell Texas

Laura Kathryn Powell Texas

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, June 24, 2019 / — Laura Kathryn Powell, from Austin Texas, is a professional event planner with a passion for yoga and wholesome methods of attaining peace, exercise, and happiness. She earned her Ayurveda certification after many hours of practice and course instruction to professionally apply teachings with clients.

In addition to a vigorous yoga schedule, Laura Powell balances her professional life by practicing Ayurveda, a whole-body system of living. Through this practice, she is able to manage the stress of day-to-day life easier and better prepare for her duties as a professional and as a mother.

Through Ayurveda, observers learn to naturally eat healthy, strengthen their digestive system, and live a more wholesome life. Ayurveda and yoga teachings together can encourage a much healthier state of being than the average individual experiences with increased core strength alongside a range of physical and mental benefits.

She’s learned that combining Ayurveda with yoga is a resourceful tool to rid the body of impurities and achieve a healthier well-being. From that, she says, flows a more peaceful mind, body and spirit. The practice has survived for thousands of years as a holistic form of medicine with millions of people around the world regularly practicing today. By following Ayurveda, people often overcome common illnesses and achieve a happier, more positive life.

After following Ayurveda instruction and discovering real results in her own life, Laura Powell decided to officiate her expertise through a certification course that would prepare her to help others achieve the same wholeness.

“Not all health solutions require expensive medications, especially if people just want to be healthier in general,” says Laura Powell. “With Ayurveda, we learn things like how sleep affects our overall health and how what we put into our bodies will have direct effects on how we feel.”

To earn her certification, Laura Powell spent hundreds of hours in a program where she learned the fundamentals of the approach to wellness and completed required training to work independently with clients. Half of her program was dedicated to presentations and course readings totaling dozens of lessons, which was necessary before moving onto the second and more specialized half of the teachings. Once students completed fundamentals, they enter a period of clinical mentoring where they take on clients in paced and observed teachings.

The program is hands-on and intensive to ensure that each graduate can successfully practice as well as teach Ayurveda to others. It required students like Laura Kathryn Powell to apply practical knowledge of the fundamentals such as diet, sleep patterns, lifestyle choices and more. In addition, they learned about various herbs that can be used to achieve a healthier digestive system and a clearer mind among other benefits.

“As a certified instructor, I use Ayurveda to help others achieve the wholeness and healthy living I’ve achieved,” says Laura Powell. “The course opened my eyes to the health potential in Ayurveda’s teachings, and I’m glad to share what I’ve learned with my clients through tailored instruction.”

CHANDIGARH, PUNJAB, INDIA, June 24, 2019 / — An intern serving the neediest at NRS Medical college, Kolkata, Dr. Paribaha Mukhopadhyay, suffered depressed skull fracture. This was result of an attack by a 200 strong mob; consisting of the relatives and acquaintances of an elderly gentleman who died while receiving treatment at the NRS Hospital. The brutality of this incident lead to more than a week long impasse of medical fraternity going on work strike seeking stringent laws and safe workplace environment. This disrupted the health care again for the most needy and vulnerable who depend on Government funded healthcare centers. It is imperative to note that the employer in this case State Government is required to provide a place of employment that is free from recognized hazards. We explore violence against health-care practitioners in India to understand its reasons and prevention.

Violence against physicians: Is this problem specific to India or a global issue?

Health care system in India is rife with infrastructure and human resource constraints. The charge for Governmental facilities initially was to help with disease prevention, vaccination, and maternal child health and they have done a great job at achieving these goals. The expectations are changing with aging of populations, and a growing population and economy. One would probably assume that violence against healthcare providers is more common in India or similar developing countries.

A WHO Publication, indicates that more than half of health care providers around the world faced at least one incidence of violence (physical or psychological) in the past year: Brazil (47%), Thailand (54%), South Africa (61%) and United Kingdom (65%), Australia (67%), and Israel (74%). In the United States, 3 out of every 4 cases related to workplace violence are reported from the health care set up. The severity and consequence of these incidents in countries excluding US with high gun violence. About 3 out of every 4 reported workplace violence in the US of nearly 25,000 reported each year occurs to workers in healthcare settings.

An Indian Medical Association study came to a conclusion that 75% of doctors in India have faced violence at some point or the other in their careers; most cases being reported form ICUs (Intensive Care Units) and the perpetrators commonly being patient attendants. In conclusion, violence against medical practitioners is fairly prevalent across the globe and is not confined to India or the developing nations.

Possible Reasons for Such High Rates of Violence

1. Mismatch between expectations from healthcare system, and reality leading to frustration may play a large role. Frustrations start with long wait times, crowding in clinical areas, delay in treatment due to access to diagnostic and treatment modalities.
2. Lack of healthcare infrastructure to support the needs of a growing population in cities as well as human resources affecting the emotional wellbeing of healthcare provider’s esp. those in training who may be spread too thin.
3. Lack of healthcare education among patients and their relatives about the health condition
4. Financial constraints on family members and lack of transparency and forthrightness about expenses can be a source of frustration.
5. Poor settings and communication in breaking adverse news to family members including lack of proper training among trainees who may be the only ones available in odd hours at night in ICU settings.
6. Lack of proper channels for expression and resolution of patient grievances
7. A general sense of corruption and mistrust in both healthcare justice systems
8. Lastly, a lack of basic (well trained and equipped security personal, unrestricted access of guests to clinical areas, screening of guests), strong deterrents (stringent laws) against work-place violence and mob violence.

The immediate enabling factor is the poor security measures at most government hospitals. Unlike other public places with high-footfall, there is hardly any screening or checking of entrants from a security point of view in hospitals. The very fact that a mob of 200 odd could reach right where the doctors were working, without encountering any resistance, speaks volumes about the inadequacy of security provisions. During the course of the current protest, one got to hear repeatedly, that doctors are considered soft targets, who can be attacked without fear of any consequences. It is a debatable point of view, because most attacks on doctors, are carried out in the heat of the moment and not premeditated. Since the crime is one of passion, it is doubtful if the doctor or other medical staff being thought of as a soft target has much to do with such incidents.

Legal protection against violence towards health care providers in India. How does it compare to other countries?

Queensland, Australia has one of the harshest laws to deal with violence against healthcare professionals, with provisions of imprisonment of up to 14 years. The National Health Service in United Kingdom has a ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy towards violence against health professionals. The Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act provides for imprisonment up to 12 months. Even in the much more federal United States of America, with provisions differ from state to state, of late, there have been calls to move towards more uniform policies to deal with and prevent violence against health-care professionals, an example being the Health Care Workplace Violence Prevention Act tabled in 2018. Many states designate assault on healthcare workers as third-degree felony which can carry a sentence of 5 years in prison, and five years probation.

One of the demands of the protesting doctors (which in principle was accepted by Dr. Harsh Vardhan, the Hon. Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare), is a strong law to deal with perpetrators of violence against health care professionals. It is interesting to note, that there already exists, in as many as 19 states of India (including West Bengal), a Protection Of Medicare Service Persons And Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention Of Violence And Damage To Property) Act, also known as the Medical Protection Act (MPA). As per provisions of the Act, attacking a health-care professional or causing damage to property in a health-care facility can attract a fine of Rs. 50,000 and a jail term of 3 years. Additionally, there are the general provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) dealing with assault, injury and grievous injury (the fracture suffered by Dr. Paribaho would have been one). Protection of patient rights falls under the Consumer Protection Act (COPRA).

There are problems with the implementation of the MPA, as it is as yet not included in the IPC or CrPC (Code of Criminal Procedure) and the law enforcement system in India is ill-famed for its tedious, slow moving pace. Moreover, in many cases (possibly including the latest one in Kolkata), the perpetrators of violence against the health-practitioners are linked to the party in power at the local level or enjoy its patronage. In such cases, the law enforcement machinery can hardly be expected to be unbiased and efficient in bringing to book the perpetrators.

A new law promised by Dr. Harsh Vardhan (Hon. Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India), comes close- with 12 years of imprisonment in such cases, envisaged to be made part of the law.

Possible Preventive and Deterrent Measures !

Though, harsh and swift punishments of any offender will deter violence and assault. The issue is complex and needs attention at multiple systematic levels. Providing more resources including security at workplaces to avoid overcrowding may be an immediate step. Training of healthcare professional in identification and de-escalation of conflicts will be next important step. Simulations and mock-drills could be carried out from time to time to check the systems at hand and plug loopholes, if any. The broader and important issue of more resources to health care system, priorities, and checking waste, reduce out of pocket expenses, as well as building trust and respect in the system should follow.

Telehealth Pioneer Craig Linden Awarded "Top 100 Healthcare Leaders Award"

Physically Augmented Telemedicine Visits

RemoteRx Dispenser Home, work and kiosk dispenser coming soon

Advanced functions and features of the planned RemoteRx home, work, kiosk and wearable devices

Real Time Touch and RemoteRx founder recognized for contribution to "Advancement in Physically Augmented Telehealth".

Physically augmenting video healthcare visits is the missing link for telehealth and clinical trials, globally.”

— Craig Linden, founder Real Time Touch

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 / — Craig Linden, founder of Real Time Touch, was awarded the prestigious "Top 100 Healthcare Leaders Award" by the International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare(IFAH). The award was "In Recognition Of His Contribution to Healthcare" and for "Advancement in Physically Augmented Telehealth". Linden gave a presentation to the inaugural event for InterCon held at Caesars Palace. The Internet Conference ("InterCon"), is a gathering of some of the leading minds in the tech space to help drive the new global economy by sharing ideas, innovation and things that shape the future of technology.

Linden is recognized as a pioneer and advocate of advanced telehealth technologies that will help move the clinic into the home, workplace, vehicle, kiosk or the outback. An inventor with granted and pending patents, Linden founded Real Time Touch (TM) and the RemoteRX (TM) Telemedicine and Telehealth platform.

RemoteRx is Real Time Touch’s medication adherence dispenser envisioned with advanced IoMT hardware, monitoring, biometric ID, cloud and physically augmented capabilities backed by Linden's patents. View more RemoteRx information: A limited example of future Real Time Touch's based and/or wearable products are remote-controlled devices for pain-relief, laser, electronic, light, and magnetic treatments/therapies, imaging, sonograms, sample collections, adjusting implants and drug delivery.

Important healthcare sectors could benefit from Real Time Touch technology:

* Clinical Trials: According to Linden, a RemoteRx “reboot” for clinical trials could "multiply the capacity of the limited number of clinicians, it’s integrated AR and AI would drive broad efficiency improvements with associated returns incentivizing more and more effective trials, it could speed the release of new critical drugs."

* Helping Seniors: Millions of seniors can benefit fromo remote assistance. Senior caregivers could remotely release their scheduled medications, monitor their vitals and access their general status during the virtual visits.

* Reducing Readmissions: Unnecessary readmissions cost hospitals billions of dollars. Remote release of critical medications during virtual nurse-to-patient interactions could help home-based patients stay home while they recover. Caregivers can monitor vital signs remotely and verify the correct medication is taken at at the prescribed time.

* Reducing Opioid Dependence: It's a US Federal Government priority to reduce opioid abuse. The advanced RemoteRx design is envisioned to include multi-level user/caregiver alerts, AI coaching, voice activation, gesture recognition, biomarkers, highest-grade HIPAA-compliant security, AR and Augmented Virtual Reality (AVR).

* Emergency Telemedicine: Millions of people live or work in remote areas and could greatly benefit from remote healthcare interactions.

A growing number of companies have announced recent telehealth initiatives, funding and/or deals including Apple, Google, Amazon, Philips, Cisco Systems, Mercy, Kaiser Permanente, American Well, AMD Global Telemedicine, TeleDoc and IBM. FCC recently announced $100M in new funding to help rural providers offering remote healthcare to low-income patients, and the FCC will be attending the South Central Telehealth Forum, August 19 & 20 in Nashville. The FDA and it's international government-base equivalent organizations are seeking innovative solutions to decentralize clinical trials to help reduce development costs of new drugs.

Real Time Touch is actively seeking partners to assist development and obtain FDA approvals of the initial four use cases set forth in the above 4 short videos.
