Trichotillomania Children

Are your children trichotillomania children? Yes? No? Maybe? Or maybe would it be more appropriate to expect a response like, “I really have no idea!” or “What on Earth are you talking about?” Let’s begin at the beginning, with an explanation of what “trichotillomania” is, shall we? The word has its roots in Greek; the morphemes vouch for its meaning being “pulling hair madness.”

But trichotillomania children don’t just pull their hair; there may be times when they actually pull it out! And if you believe that those who suffer from hair pulling disorders only pull out the hair on their head – and their own hair – well, there is not really any less blunt way to say this, but you are wrong! If you have children, then stop worrying about the loss of your own hair and keep the cat in a safe place for long enough to take some sort of action, because the worst cases can be really ugly! Read on.

Hair pulling children, trichotillomania children – whatever you want to call them – when not being players in dramatic emotional episodes that Amy Winehouse would find it hard to ignore or dispel, have mostly normal lifestyles, even if they will be seen with bald spots in the most unexpected of places. It is just too bad that clinicians have classified it as a habit behaviour, right up there with nail biting and compulsive skin picking (onychophagia and  dermatillomania respectively). OCD and physical disorders, for example stereotypical movement disorder, can be attributed to trichotillomania children. Furthermore, hair pulling children may also feel the need to note that people with hair pulling disorders pull hair because of how it looks or feels at a certain area.

But studies have shown that hair pulling children may suffer not only from social estrangement / alienation, but also decreased cerebellar volume (and who’s to say that the latter, unlike the former, is immediately evident?). NB anxiety and depression – it may be worth pointing out to children that hair pulling children showing these things are likely to be or become trichotillomania children. Children who happen to be hair pulling children should also be warned against developing trichophagia (that is, eating or chewing the hair pulled); while extreme cases of this could be a prelude to Rapunzel’s syndrome and even death, according to some sources. (I suppose tearing hair out violently enough is not that unlikely to result in something like brain haemorrhaging caused by relocated arteries).

…Big Question: how to treat it, get therapy? Drug therapy is an option; look for names like Fluoxetine (Prozac), Fluvoxamine (Luvox), Clomipramine (Anafranil) and Sertraline (Zoloft). Or you could go for hypnotherapy, but the best idea would Habit Reversal Training of psychotherapy which can stop hair puuling children from becoming trichotillomania children.

Discover how you can join over 432 trichotillomania ex-sufferers who have already ended their years of pulling hair disorder, and had completely stop pulling hair using an easy 3 step therapy treatment system.

Endangered Sea Turtles Set For Release Today by the South Carolina Aquarium

Charleston, S.C. (PRWEB) March 06, 2015

Four additional sea turtles have been successfully rehabilitated by the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program and are ready to return to the wild. The turtles, all Kemp’s ridleys, the most endangered of the sea turtle species, are being released this afternoon at Cape Canaveral National Seashore in Titusville, Fla. A representative from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is driving the turtles to Florida where the water temperatures and habitat are suitable for the juvenile Kemp’s ridley sea turtles this time of year. This release marks 154 threatened and endangered sea turtles successfully treated by the Sea Turtle Rescue Program.

About the sea turtles:

Ryder, Teeter, Beech and Scarlet: These four sea turtles were all part of a massive stranding event along the New England coast in November 2014, during which time more than 1,000 sea turtles were found near death from hypothermia after a severe cold front hit Massachusetts’ coastal areas. The turtles were flown to Charleston via a private flight generously donated by Will and Margie Dorminy, local residents and owners of Southern Eagle Distributing. The turtles were treated with antibiotics, fluids and vitamin injections. Ryder also suffered from frostbite and injuries were treated with antibiotic ointments to prevent infection and aid in healing. After three months of care, all four are ready to be released in the warm waters off Florida’s coast.

About cold-stunning:

Sea turtles are cold-blooded reptiles that depend on the environment to regulate their body temperature. Typically, sea turtles migrate to warmer waters when the water starts cooling in the fall. If they don’t make the migration before coastal water temperatures drop, they suffer from hypothermia, also known as cold-stunning. Symptoms of cold-stunning include a decreased heart and respiration rate, decreased circulation, and lethargy, followed by shock, pneumonia and, in worst case scenarios, death.

What can you do?:

You can help protect threatened and endangered sea turtles. If you find a sick or injured sea turtle, contact the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR) sea turtle hotline at (800) 922-5431. You may also help care for sea turtles in recovery in the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program by going to scaquarium.org and making a donation.

About the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program:

In partnership with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR), the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program works to rescue, rehabilitate and release sea turtles that strand along the South Carolina coast. Located in the Aquarium, the Sea Turtle Hospital admits 20 to 30 sea turtles each year. Many of these animals are in critical condition and some are too sick to save.

According to SCDNR, during the past 10 years the average number of sea turtle standings on South Carolina beaches each year is 128. Of these, roughly 10 percent are alive and successfully transported to the Sea Turtle Hospital. To date, the South Carolina Aquarium has successfully rehabilitated and released 154 sea turtles and is currently treating 15 patients. The average cost for each patient’s treatment is $ 35 per day with the average length of stay reaching nine months.

UV Skinz team members hope to spread the word to dermatologists about their Medical Partner Program, where they offer doctors 50% off all UV Skinz brand products ordered through their website. “We offer this discount to all dermatologists, as we know that the best way to recommend products to patients is by having a personal experience with them, and we stand behind our products 100%. You won’t find higher quality for a better price than with UV Skinz,” explains Rhonda Sparks, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of UV Skinz. Rhonda adds, “Sun protective clothing can be expensive, not to mention unfashionable and often times uncomfortable. This isn’t the case with UV Skinz products.

UV Skinz attendance at the 2015 AAD Annual meeting marks their fifth appearance and another step forward in the company’s mission to protect children and adults from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV radiation.

Recording and Remembering Important Revelations Received through Dreams and Visions

Shippensburg, PA (PRWEB) February 28, 2015

In the Old Testament, one of the signs that someone was filled with the Spirit was their ability to dream, and in turn, interpret that dream. Consider the fact that people spend a significant portion of life sleeping. Yet, even as they sleep, their hearts and spirits are awake – they are still receiving. Every moment that a person is sleeping is a potential opportunity for God to be speaking directly to them. Whether awake or asleep, He wants to communicate with His people. He wants to reveal things to their hearts. He wants to open their eyes in a greater way — to see the unseen. Two of the most common and biblical ways God speaks—and that we tend to miss—are in visions and dreams.

Dreams and visions are important parts of a person’s inheritance as a child of God filled with the Holy Spirit. Whether they are dreams in the night or visions birthed in one’s heart as they co-labor with God while they’re awake, it’s important to record and remember the important revelations being received. The purpose for this journal is to provide a place to record revelations and dreams from quiet time with God.

The authors encourage their audience to posture their hearts in a place of expectation to hear from Heaven and prepare to receive and record all that God wants to speak. By using the “Dream Journal” readers will receive daily inspirational quotes from Bill and Beni Johnson, Danny Silk, and other leaders of Bethel Church, encouraging the discovery of their ability to hear God’s voice and live a supernatural lifestyle.

This journal is not an exhaustive resource, providing different biblical strategies on dream interpretation. There are other materials and teachings available to provide instruction in those subjects. Rather, before beginning to receive interpretation and learning some of the practical ways to understand symbols, images, visions, pictures, and other such dream language, the authors encourage the importance of beginning a personal practice of writing down dreams and visions.

Interviews, review copies and giveaway copies are available upon request.

State Attorney Dave Aronberg attended in support of the event and spoke about how important the work that PTC does. “Many ‘standard’ cable television networks will run programs with graphic sex and violence with little or no concern about the hours of broadcast or if children could be watching,” said Gary Lesser. “The PTC lets the public know about the content of these programs and works with the networks, companies, and advertisers to make sure our children are not exposed to graphic, inappropriate content, especially earlier in the evening. I am proud to be part of the team that is helping on these issues.”

Gary S. Lesser was unanimously voted onto the board of Parents Television Council in August of 2014. “We are proud to welcome Gary Lesser to the Parents Television Council’s Board of Directors. Our Board, and indeed the entire organization, will benefit greatly by his wisdom, experience, energy, enthusiasm and unwavering commitment to philanthropic causes that serve children and families,” said Michele D’Amour, Board Chair, Parents Television Council.

The Parents Television Council (PTC) is a Los Angeles, California based censorship advocacy group founded in 1995. As their mission states, the PTC strives to protect children and families from graphic sex, violence and profanity in the media because of their proven long-term harmful effects.

MMI Launches Aquatic Exercise Classes at Frederick Kids First Swim School

Frederick, Maryland (PRWEB) January 24, 2015

The Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal Institute (MMI), local experts for things related to muscle, bone and joint care, has a unique way to help succeed with New Year’s resolution to get into shape in 2015.

In conjunction with the Kids First Swim School located in the FSK Mall, MMI now offers Aquatic Exercise Classes. This marks the first endeavor of its kind for the orthopaedic practice as it joins forces with a local sport facility to offer a fast growing and popular exercise option to residents of the Frederick area.

All exercise has a range of health benefits, but water-based work-outs can be a fun way to bring variety into exercise routine while taking full advantage of the benefits that the buoyancy of exercising in water provides. MMI’s Aquatic Exercise Classes build cardiovascular fitness and strength. Just like swimming, water exercise classes are easy on joints, yet challenging enough to help reach new levels of fitness.

Instructor, Jennilee Ambush, Occupational Therapist with MMI, teaches the classes Monday and Wednesday mornings. The 10:00 AM class Low-Impact Water Exercise is designed for those with limited mobility or injuries, while the 11:00 AM Cardio Fitness class is designed for those looking for a low impact, high cardio exercise option. When asked, Ambush said “Because of their low-impact format, our Aquatic Exercise Classes are ideal for those who have pain when doing most land based exercise such as people suffering from low back pain, arthritis, or injuries to the lower extremities. It’s also beneficial for those preparing for, or recovering from hip, knee, or back surgery. Without the limitations of gravity, the water helps you to become stronger, reduce pain, and provides the ability to do more in the pool than on land, resulting in a faster recovery.”

The association for the two organizations began in 2014 with the launch of an Aquatic Therapy Program for patients at MMI. Ambush works with many developmentally delayed children and found that the benefits of therapy in a warm water pool allowed for increased participation, range of motion, strength, endurance, and balance. The idea to expand to exercise classes for the general public seemed to be the next logical step for the energetic Ambush who is a former swimmer and lifeguard. Ali Fox, manager of the Frederick location noted that “Kids First Swim Schools offer these classes at most of their locations but they are operated by staff of the swim school. The opportunity to have an occupational therapist like Jennilee managing and teaching the classes is a real bonus for our Frederick patrons.”

The Aquatic Exercise Association reports that one can expect to burn 400 to 500 calories per hour when exercising in the water. Additionally, water offers 12 times the resistance of air, which helps to improve muscle strength. Ambush utilizes simple devices such as hand-held paddles, foam noodles and kickboards in the classes to add further resistance increasing the intensity of the aquatic workout.

The Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal Institute offers a full range of services for muscle, bone and joint problems and is ocated at 86 Thomas Johnson Court in Frederick, Maryland as well as 1829 Howell Road in Hagerstown, MD and 3280 Urbana Pike in Ijamsville, MD.

Protecting Your Children

If you are a parent then you will be aware that there are different regulations in the car for that of adults, but how do you make sure that your kids are safe at all times when they are strapped into your vehicle? With eight thousand children dying in car accidents in America every year, it’s important to be sure how to keep your children safe. The roads in the UK are no safer, and we need to implement a few rules to make sure that we keep our children safe and sound.

Firstly, don’t even consider drinking and driving. Not only does it put your life in danger, but it endangers the life of your children, who don’t have the choice.

Make sure that your kids have their seatbelts on. instil in them the need to keep the belt on, and if necessary move the buckle so they cannot reach it from their car seat as little fingers get into everything while you are concentrating on the road.

Don’t answer the phone when you are driving, as it leads to distracted behaviours that could put your children’s lives in danger. Wait till you are stopped to make that call. It’s actually illegal to use a mobile phone behind the wheel in the UK, so you will be teaching them valuable lessons too.

If your children are fighting in the back of the car then make sure that you pull over to tell them off. There is no point trying to act as a mediator and a chauffeur at the same time, it will just result in you being distracted and having a car accident.

There is no illusion that you might be tired if you have children sapping your energy levels on a daily basis, and this is all the more reason to not drive when you are suffering from tiredness. It will make you distracted, and therefore mean that you may have an accident when you normally would be safe. Pull over, have a nap and then carry on.

If you are looking for Car Insurance Online then you will find a far cheaper deal.
