Being Single Has Its Advantages!

Being single today is a far cry from being single years ago. There were many single women who wondered if something was wrong with them if they were not married by a certain age. Many still seem to identify with and get totally wrapped up in the concept of “marriage”. For some, it is the social and family pressures that are put upon them from the day they are born. However, there is a trend of women who are realizing that being single has its advantages.

Broken Heart Syndrome

It is sometimes difficult to imagine that we can go through our lifetimes without experiencing the pain of a broken heart. Perhaps it is a part of living our lives and forming relationships with others. Being that Valentine’s Day is upon us, patients often ask whether it is possible for someone to die from a broken heart. Unfortunately, the answer can be yes. Even in the medical world, there is a syndrome that is called the “broken heart syndrome” or “stress cardiomyopathy”. This is when the heart suffers a sudden or abrupt heart failure that comes from, believe it or not, an emotional trauma...

Ask Dr. Christina: Heart Disease – What Are the Real Symptoms That Are Killing Women?

Dear Dr. Christina, I am so distraught. I took my wife Amy, who is only 40 years old, to the hospital over the weekend when she was complaining of extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, indigestion, and nervousness. The doctor told my wife she had a virus and that she probably ate something that did not agree with her. He gave her what he called a “GI cocktail” to help with her indigestion and told her that it would help settle her upset stomach. He told her to drink plenty of fluids, get some rest, and gave her a shot to help calm her nerves. He sent her home with instructions to be seen by her private doctor on Monday. -- Two hours later, she threw up and fainted. I called 911 and she died in the ambulance on the way back to the hospital. I was told she had a massive heart attack. -- What happened? I thought she only had indigestion, felt tired, and was only having a panic attack. That is what the doctor said and I believed him. Now she is dead. -- I feel so betrayed, lost, and guilty. Could I have done something different? ~ Bill

Earning Employee Trust and Loyalty Can Increase Profits and Productivity

How businesses and corporations can become more profitable and productive is not really that complex. Oftentimes it is the little things that we have the tendency to overlook that can enable you to treat not only your customers with respect, but also your employees. It is important for you and your employees to serve your customers—and as an employer it is just as important for you to make the working environment more pleasant to serve your employees. Some ways to do this include fostering the feelings of your employees when it comes having a voice, asking them for an opinion, and making them feel that they are actually listened to and heard. This in itself can make a difference.
