Need is to create a universal healthcare model for the country – The Hindu

Healthcare Global Enterprises Ltd. (HCG), Indias largest provider of cancer care, believes that introduction of universal healthcare model like those of western countries can provide relief to cancer patients whose number is set to grow in the coming years. Chairman & CEO Dr. B.S. Ajai Kumar speaks about the challenges, and his vision to provide quality oncology healthcare across the country. Edited excerpts:

Very serious. It is increasing by the day. India reported 1.5 million cases but I think it will be 2.5 million or three million cases in a few years. Going forward China and India will have the highest numbers in incidence of cancer. So it is very important that we treat it properly. Prevention is always better. So we have taken up the issue of smoking, we have filed a case in Supreme Court and have sought a ban on smoking. We have taken up preventive measures like early screening. We want to focus on early detection and prevention. But not all cancers can be detected. So when they come in advanced stage, if treated properly, the patients can have a good quality of life.

Because of environmental and life style related issues. We have seen lot of people having style and dietary changes. Every one is eating outside and having junk and oily food. We are using herbicide, pesticides and all these will contribute. Smoking and pollution are adding to the problem. Cancer is something that does not happen overnight. Now even 25-year-olds are getting cancer and this is a matter of great concern.

You must focus on lifestyle. Do good exercise, have proper diet and preferably organic food. If there is a family history we can look at the genomics criteria to see whether the patient will get cancer. One can predict. A saliva test can prove if someone has a higher chance of getting breast cancer. We are now getting more into genomics. So in future genomics will tell us who is likely to get cancer.

Today we have 24 centres in India, Africa, Middle East and Vietnam. But most of them are in India. We have an opportunity to grow. Currently we are establishing a big centre in Delhi, possibly in Kerala. We have opportunity to grow in the Middle East and Africa. But right now we want to consolidate. Because we have grown too much, we want to consolidate first and then get into the growth phase again. We would like to go for the asset light model. We dont want to own real estate. And we are also coming with models wherein we will not own the equipments.

In India the problem is that we dont have provision for universal healthcare. We have certain healthcare scheme for poor people. Today over 50% of the patients are paying from their own pocket. So naturally it becomes very expensive. In U.S. if you get a cancer treatment done it would cost $30,000 to $40,000. Here we are doing it in less than $8,000. The problem is that even if people are paying 5 lakh, they are paying from their pocket. But if you go to Singapore or Middle East the 5 lakh here is going to be 50 lakh. So it is very cheap here but people cannot afford that. That is why we have recommended universal healthcare.

The government has to be open and say let us create a universal healthcare model for the entire country. My frustration is that we have not done that yet. Unless we do that and measure the outcome, the existing schemes will not help. People are dying because they do not get the right kind of treatment. We have to bring that quality. Like I am a medicare recipient and have a medicare card in the U.S. When I was young I contributed for this. India has so many youngsters. Why can they not contribute? Their contribution can go towards universal healthcare pool. So billions of dollars will be there and people can benefit from that. There will be uniformity in care. When you become old you can benefit. That model has to be created. I dont know what is coming in the way of that model.

Very good. For breast cancer the success rate is 90%, colon cancer is 80 to 90%. The only challenge is lung cancer, but with new treatment the patients are living longer. We can have better control on brain tumours, head and neck cancer if we can detect them at early stages. Late stages are also treatable. The cancer field has changed now. It is now more of a chronic disease.

We have close to 650 crore debt. We are planning to reduce it. We have put an end to the capex cycle. We are now working on improving cash flow. Most centres are on the verge of breaking even. The whole idea is to improve the EBITDA and improve profitability. Then slowly we will reduce the debt.

All our centres should achieve full capacity utilisation. Then we will look at opportunity at asset light models. We are looking at operate and manage models and also areas where in we can provide our expertise. The entire Africa is a huge opportunity for us to provide good quality treatment. We have a centre in Nairobi and we want to build on this. We are looking at the partnership model like we have in Nashik and Ahmedabad. We want to grow through partnerships. Since we grew rapidly, I want to consolidate first.

How to Mix HCG Injections: The Ultimate Guide – Science Times

Are you trying to learn how to mix HCG injections? If yes, you should check out this guide with everything to know and do.

The fertility and weight-loss industries are massive. And both put a lot of pressure on their clients financially and medically.

Not to mention financially - the weight-loss industry in the U.S. generates $72 billion a year and the fertility industry generates around $15.6 billion.

A common product between the two is HCG, a compound that's used to help people have a baby and lose the baby weight. These may seem to be strange to pair. But to both industries, HCG is a vital component.

And if you eventually patronize these industries for common procedures, you will eventually have to learn how to mixHCG.

Learning What to know How to MixHCG

HCG stands forhuman chorionic gonadotropin. It's a hormone that the uterus excretes during the early stages of pregnancy. It's what most pregnancy tests are trying to detect.

In treating fertility, the injections are used to help the ovaries develop and release and egg. It is also used in men to help increase sperm count.

In weight loss, it's paired with the eponymous HCG diet. It's believed to impact how people experience hunger. It is also paired with a radical daily calorie count reduction, in some cases down to 500 calories a day. This is about a fourth of the calories that most healthy people are recommended to eat.

Mix It Up

If you get a low-cost HCG mixing kit, you will get a few key things: bacteriostatic water, a sterile vial, injection prep pads and a large mixing syringe

You will have to have the HCG prescribed to you by a provider. It often does not come with a mixing kit. Also, your doctor will give you a specific dosing needle and syringe.

Step one:Assess the situation, make sure that you read all the instructions provided to you by your health care provider and the prescribing pharmacist. If there are conflicts in the instructions, call your provider and reconcile them.

Step two:Figure out where the HCG is stored and where it needs to be mixed. In some cases, the HCG will come in the vial that it will be mixed in; in other cases, you will need to use the empty sterile mixing vial.

The HCG will also likely be in a powder that needs to be reconstituted. It also may come in a condensed liquid. Both will need thebacteriostatic water to appropriately dilute and mix.

Step three: Grab the mixing needle and syringe. Attach if need be. Open the lid for the HCG and the water. For powdered HCG, measure out about half of the water needed in the mixing needle and inject it into the HCG. Gently swirl until dissolved. Remove the mixture and inject it into the empty mixing vial. Add the remaining water needed. Gently swirl.

For the concentrate, you will simply add the prescribed amount ofbacteriostatic water in most cases.

Then What?

From there, you use it as you need it for up to 72 hours. Store in a dark refrigerator. Some recommend wrapping the stored vial in foil to help prevent light degradation and to help ensure the vial stays cool.

Learning how to mix HCG is just one point in the collision of life and science. See the articles below for more on what you need to know about the scientific world around you.

More than Nerve-Racking – Business Today

If you are looking pale and feeling tired all the time, if your skin (especially the knuckles) is darkening, if you have severe joint pains, pins-and-needles sensation or feel a numbness while walking, you could be suffering from vitamin B12 deficiency. There could be other symptoms too, such as mouth ulcer (glossitis), blurred vision, a tendency to fall, dizziness or short breath.

But most of the times, we tend to google a remedy or pop a vitamin pill, hoping that the symptoms will go away. Well, they won't, until you visit a doctor and get proper medication. Worse still, a severe deficiency can lead to deep depression, paranoia, delusion, memory loss, loss of taste and smell, and more, according to an article in Harvard Health Publishing. Why is this vitamin so vital for our health? Well, vitamin B12 is essential for the proper functioning and development of the nervous system, red blood cells and even our DNA. But just like most other vitamins, the human body cannot make it. You will find it in dairy products like milk and all sorts of animal proteins such as seafood, meat, poultry and eggs.

An average adult only requires 2.4 micrograms a day, but there lies the problem. Either our intake is not adequate or many of us cannot absorb it. According to medical practitioners, vitamin B12 deficiency cases are on the rise, mainly due to poor dietary habits and lack of awareness.

"However, more and more people are testing now for B12 deficiency (it is a blood test) as they become aware of this condition. A decade ago, there was hardly any testing," says Dr Manoj Chadha, Consultant Endocrinologist at P.D. Hinduja Hospital and Medical Research Centre in Mumbai. Even then, addressing the condition is not easy. For one, the symptoms may take years to show up, and when they do, they can be easily mistaken for folic acid (vitamin B9) deficiency or other related ailments.

"I have seen a doubling of these cases over the past decade and it is a problem that we cannot ignore," says Dr Jeevan H.R., Consultant Medical Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist at HCG Hospital in Bengaluru.

Eating the right food is essential, he says, and a vegetarian diet does not help here as most plants do not grow vitamin B12. You need not be a meat-eater, though, as milk and other dairy products contain this vitamin. Those who consume too many pills to fight gas and acidity are also open to risk. Prolonged intake of these drugs often reduces gastric acid secretion and hinders vitamin B12 absorption. Long-term and heavy use of alcohol is another big risk. Stomach conditions such as atrophic gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) and pancreas problems also lead to malabsorption of vitamin B12.

Can veggies absorb B12?: Based on several independent studies conducted in different states and regions (Northern India, for instance) and also drawing from their personal experience, doctors say that vitamin B-12 deficiency is quite rampant in the country and becoming a growing health risk. But it is difficult to arrive at a few direct linkages with clearly correlated cause and effect.

Globally, research is on to understand how vitamin B12 deficiency is linked to ailments other than red blood cells or nerve-related diseases. For instance, could it lead to heart conditions, osteoporosis, depression and some cancers? Does the prolonged use of certain drugs trigger lower vitamin B12 absorption? Besides, efforts are on to develop new solutions to help vegetarians and vegans. For example, could plant structures be tweaked to help them absorb vitamin B-12. Last year, scientists at the University of Kent reportedly discovered that certain plants have the potential to absorb this vitamin. This could go a long way in making plant-based foods which will be rich in vitamin B12.

Monica Gavin M.D. – HCG Diet Philadelphia – HCG Lehigh …

Pennsylvania HCGDiet Specialist Monica Gavin, M.D. believes Age Management is the great model of health for the new Millenium. Age Management focuses on preserving quality of life and youthful looks, making every effort to modulate the process of aging. To this end, Azani Medical Spa provides medical services to include anti-aging, weight control, bio-identical hormonal replacement, genetic testing, wellness programs, and the finest aesthetic medical treatments and plastic surgery procedures in the Philadelphia Lehigh Valley and Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Pennsylvania areas.

Monica Gavin, M.D. has a passion for helping people achieve their wellness and aesthetic goals. Many people are struggling with weight and the chronic diseases and associated with extra weight. Men and women that are seriously committed to losing weight and becoming healthier can greatly benefit from the HCG medical weight loss program. Patients that are 20 pounds or more above their ideal body weight can be candidates for the HCG Diet.

A doctor named A.T.W Simeons discovered the HCG Diet in the 1950s after he travelled to India. While in India, Dr. Simeons noticed that malnourished Indian mothers were giving birth to healthy babies. He wondered how this could be possible, and then, he discovered the mechanism of the HCG hormone.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or the HCG hormone, is naturally produced in womens bodies during pregnancy. The hormone is released into the bloodstream in order to protect the fetus in the event of a famine or food shortage. The hormone allows a fetus to obtain nutrients from a womans locked away fat stores if the mother is unable to take in enough nourishment to supply its needs.

When a person is not pregnant and the HCG hormone is put into the bloodstream, the body responds the same way it would as if a fetus were present and needed nutrients. While the hormone is produced is a womans body, it works the same way metabolically for both men and women. Men and women that are overweight can take the hormone in order to release stored up fat. While ingesting the hormone, people must maintain a very low calorie diet, which consists of no more than 500 calories per day. Because 500 calories is well under the bodys daily-required amount of calories, the body begins to release fat stores in order to meet the bodys needs.

Because many nutrients are being released into the bloodstream because of the hormone, most people do not feel hungry while on the diet. Typically people lose from 1 to 2 pounds per day, and most of the time, men actually lose weight more rapidly than women. This is because womens bodies need more fat for healthy hormone production and for reproduction functions. The HCG Diet is a natural way for men and women to lose weight and meet their weight loss goals.

Under the direction of Dr. Monica Gavin, Diplomate of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the team of caring and licensed health care professionals is dedicated to helping people look and feel their best. Treatments are safe, effective, affordable, and FDA approved. With each visit to the beautiful and soothing medical spa, Patients will renew themselves.

HCG Diet Food List Phase 1 – HCG Weight Loss

People tend to fail at dieting for a number of reasons, including long-term deprivation of their favorite foods, not enough variety of items to eat, poor planning, not following dietary guidelines, and poor results. The HCG diet food list Phase 1 helps to conquer all of those concerns by laying the groundwork for a program that is easy to follow with a clear beginning, middle, and end. The HCG diet lets you start out by consuming all of your favorite foods especially the not so healthy ones before bringing rapid weight loss of up to 30 pounds in 30 days into your life.

The four distinct phases of the HCG diet will lead to success. Omit one and you probably wont see the desired results. Each phase has its purpose. Phase 1 of the HCG diet plan may be the shortest lasting only two days but it is by far the most important. You see, HCG targets the fat stored in the body. We want to make it easy to find, so we start by loading your bloodstream up with fat that can be readily accessed to get the process rolling.

The HCG Diet food list for Phase 1 will show you how to maximize this process by making the right choices for what to eat during these first two days.

Get ready to eat. That is the advice given to people embarking on the HCG Diet. Day one is when you begin HCG injections, but this is not the time to think about losing weight. That will start on day three. The first two days we get HCG and fat into your bloodstream. To accomplish that goal, you must set your target food consumption at a minimum of 2,000 calories. What you choose to eat makes a difference, so take a look at the HCG Diet Phase 1 approved food list for guidance.

These options on the HCG Diet plan food list Phase 1 will help you increase weight loss success:

Think about all of those times when you knew you were eating something bad for your diet, and go ahead and eat them again now. This is also an excellent time to go to a buffet.

What you eat during these first two days of HCG injections will make a big difference in your results. This is not the time to think about dieting. You must saturate your body with high-fat foods. If you do not, the HCG will not have ready to use fat on day three. That is why the HCG Diet menu Phase 1 is filled with your favorite food choices.

One key point to make is that these two days are about consuming foods with high-fat content. That does not mean lots of added sugar. We do not want you to waste your calories on jelly beans and sugary candies. This will not help the process. These items do not have fat only sugar. When your sweet tooth hits, reach for cheesecake, eclairs, donuts, full-fat ice cream, and other desserts that feature both sugar and fat.

When looking at the HCG Diet foods list Phase 1, you will also notice that this is not the time to skimp, so heap on those creamy salad dressings, load up the nachos, fries, and baked potatoes, and put lots of toppings on your ice cream sundae. Choose fattier cuts of meat that you would normally avoid. The more fat you consume, the quicker you will lose weight starting on day three.

For additional information about weight loss with the HCG Diet, contact Weight Loss Medical Center for a free consultation with a weight loss specialist.
