The orofacial clefts are congenital deformities, which manifest at birth. The meaning of cleft is a crack, split fissure or a gap. The congenital cleft lip and/or cleft palate anomaly has a very important place in Health Sciences because of epidemiology, racial-ethnic variation, etiology, surgery, orthodontics, speech pathology, and prosthetic rehabilitation. The children afflicted with this anomaly are handicapped right from birth for breastfeeding, deglutition, recurrent Naso-bronchial infection, defective speech, improper growth and development affecting the total personality of the individual. The present-day society demands from the medical and health profession the total personality development of such an individual so that he is not a stigma as well as a burden on the society. This book presents detailed information regarding management and different treatment protocols in cleft lip and palate in orthodontics.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the practical aspects of contrast echocardiography. It also covers all the material in the guidelines published by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) in 2018 and the recommendations set out by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) in 2017. Contrast echocardiography at present is only used in 5-10% of cases, but this is expected to grow rapidly following the recommendations of the ASE and EACVI. The chapters cover the approved indications and provide practical advice on how to administer the contrast agents and how to optimize the recordings as well as how to deal with the pitfalls. The reader will find all the information on how to use contrast agents for assessment of shunts, LV volumes and function as well as myocardial diseases and masses. Detailed protocols are included for stress echocardiography and myocardial perfusion imaging. Other topics covered include the use of contrast agents for coronary sonography and transesophageal echocardiography. Contrast Echocardiography: Compendium for Clinical Practice comprehensively covers all aspects of the clinical use of contrast echocardiography and has been written by two cardiologists who share their experience from their high volume echo laboratories. One of the authors has been a member of both the ASE guidelines and EACVI recommendation writing groups. It is therefore, a critical text for echocardiographers and sonographers who perform echocardiography.
Each year, more than 50,000 US families receive an autism diagnosis. On top of turmoil and worry, they share the same urgent question: What can we do to help our child? The answers parents find can be contradictory...even dangerous. The conventional approach (employed by too many pediatricians) is to medicate difficult behaviors into submission - suppressing symptoms while leaving underlying health challenges untouched. Surfing the Internet for alternatives just leads to confusion. Now, Dr. Janet Lintala, founder of the Autism Health center and an autism mom herself, shares the natural protocols used in her practice to dramatically improve the function and well-being of children on the spectrum. Drawing on the latest research developments, as well as personal and clinical experience, she targets the underlying issues (chronic inflammation, oxidative stress, gastrointestinal dysfunction, immune dysregulation) associated with the behavior, bowel, and sleep problems so common to autism. Correcting these overlooked conditions with digestive enzymes, probiotics, antifungals, and other nonpsychiatric treatments brings transformative results: less pain, less aggression, and a child who is more receptive to behavioral and educational interventions. While the medical profession is slow to change, autistic kids need help immediately. The Un-Prescription for Autism provides clear explanations, detailed protocols, and examples to help parents act quickly to restore their child´s health, self-control, and language - paving the way for reaching their full potential.

Steve Dimon believes that 80% of heart attacks, strokes, and cancers, as well as diabetes and obesity are preventable, treatable, and beatable through proper diet, nutrition, exercise, supplementation, and lifestyle change. And he´s living proof of that. On April 22, 2012 he suffered an Ischemic stroke. Paralyzed from head to toe on his left side, he spent a month in two different hospitals and three months in outpatient therapy. To look at Steve today, you wouldn´t believe that he had a stroke. He has literally turned back the clock and reversed all of his metabolic syndrome symptoms. His doctors use two words to describe his recovery: miraculous and amazing. Or, how Dr. George Shannon put it: He´s an example of how hard work and determination can help overcome seemingly impossible odds. In his handbook Health, Wellness & Longevity, Steve Dimon, for the first time, takes listeners through various occurrences, causes, and signs of a stroke as well as outlines the roots of other modern diseases, before outlining a detailed protocol, allowing us all to take control of our health. Reaching far beyond the usual stroke treatment options and stroke recovery programs, Steve Dimon´s plan is based on his own experience transforming from a morbidly obese 64 year old to a healthy, young 67 year old with a 32-inch waistline and 6.5% body fat. But Steve Dimon doesn´t stop there. A strong believer that average isn´t good enough when it comes to your health, he has dug deep into the current scientific research to provide listeners with a cutting edge solution for disease prevention and reversal, which includes: A formula for early recognition of stroke symptoms; innovative ways to reduce stress; easy to prepare recipes for weight loss; simple but effective workout routines that will get results; the psychology behind a lifestyle change; immune system basics and supplement guides and much more.

Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50. Even as opiate addiction skyrockets, more people than ever before are hooked on alcohol, sedatives, cigarettes, and even screens. The face and prevalence of addiction has changed and evolved, but our solutions to addiction are stuck in the past. We’ve been treating addiction as a black or white issue, a disease you either suffer from or from which will never suffer. The problem with this model is that it doesn’t account for the incredible forces working against all of us, pushing all of us toward addiction: stress, undernourishment, sleep deprivation, vitamin D deficiency, and isolation, not to mention a flawed medical system and corrupt pharmaceutical companies doling out prescriptions at every turn.The truth: Addiction is a disease that, like many others, exists on a spectrum. We are more vulnerable to becoming addicted to substances at certain points in our lives and, based on the evidence provided in The Addiction Spectrum, most effective at kicking addiction when we take a holistic approach. With the help of the 13-point plan and individual protocols detailed in this audiobook, you have the power to change your destiny. No one understands this more than Dr. Paul Thomas, who recovered from alcohol addiction early in his career and founded one of the most effective rehabilitation centers for teens and young adults in his hometown of Portland, Oregon. Named one of the top family doctors and one of the top pediatricians in the country, Dr. Paul is also board-certified in both integrative medicine and addiction medicine. This unique combination of specialties is intentional: Dr. Paul has devoted his entire life and career to saving lives.Using the best conventional medicine alongside the new science of alternative health, Dr. Paul has treated thousands of patients with the life-saving solutions provided in The Addiction Spectrum.
