Having an allergy to peanuts is characterized by serious anaphylactic reactions, which usually has a lifelong persistence. In the United States of America, tree nuts and peanuts are among some of the most common food allergens that produce an anaphylactic reaction in humans. This fact is concerning, because seemingly harmless substances like dust, gluten, milk and shellfish should not be of concern to people. If one were to also look at the difference between rates in the United States versus the rest of the world, they will notice a drastic difference in the prevalence of allergies between the two.

On Monday, July 27th I attended the two o’clock meeting for the Friends in Recovery over zoom. The style of this meeting was democratic. It was well structured, yet very laid back. There were two co- hosts who structured the meeting so that they fit in the reading of the twelve traditions and twelve steps, prayer, new member introductions, an individual’s journey to sobriety, comments and questions for the speaker, and then some last words to wrap everything up. The origin of this group is in South Africa and welcomes those from all over the world. They meet every single…

History

The history of child protective orders has evolved throughout the decades and child protective services has transformed to what they are in today’s society. Prior to 1875, there were very few interventions in place to protect children from abuse or witnessing abuse. The emergence was after the case of Mary Ellen Wilson who was beaten and neglected as a child. The abuse she endured was brought to the attention of Etta Wheeler, a religious missionary, who contacted local authorities that declined investigation into the claims. As there were no programs in place for abused children, she turned to the…

1.) Restrict Calories Naturally, our first instinct is to limit the amount of calories we consume through out the day. For a week or so, you will begin to see results and think that this is the plan for you. Then suddenly our body adapts and goes into a plateau. Thus, weight loss is stalled and fat storage is in progress. Your body is amazing in respect to how quickly it is able to adapt. When you are not supplying yourself with enough calories, you begin to store fat for protection and insulation. We require certain macro/ micronutrients to live…

Introduction

“One new approach for treating mood and anxiety disorders is hatha yoga, a form of yoga that uses physical postures in combination with breathing and/or meditation practices,”(Vollbehr et al. 2018). The leading cause of long-term disabilities within the older adult demographic is osteoarthritis which affects approximately 33.6% of people above the age of 65 years (Park et al. 2017). In the past twenty years, metabolic syndrome (MetS) has become a pandemic, which is rapidly increasing (Lau et al., 2015). Metabolic syndrome has become a growing problem across the globe. The research on how yoga can benefit one’s health is…

The purpose of this literature review is to communicate the state of evidence regarding pediatric obesity, specifically in relation to predicting obesity, interventions, and long/short term health implications. …

Abstract

A central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is a prominent issue in the healthcare field, most commonly seen in intensive care units (ICU). The CDC reports an estimated 41,000 deaths caused by CLABSI each year in the U.S. Many researchers across the world have studied on how to best prevent these infections from occurring. Most of the studies consisted of improving hand hygiene, proper aseptic technique, donning sterile gloves and gowns, etc. Placing these guidelines into practice have shown a significant drop in CLABSI rates. The proposed solution of this paper is to create core measures that are standardized throughout…

We have all experienced an “Uh oh” moment at the gym or getting ready for a workout. Every girl can relate to some, if not all, of these struggles.

1.) Sports bra malfunction You are pumped for this workout you are about to demolish and as you start to get dressed your sports bra twists behind your back… talk about a buzz kill. Suddenly, you become a professional contortionist twisting and turning trying to unwind it. But lemme tell ya, once that puppy is on the right way boy is it a relief and on to the gym you go…
