You’ve probably seen medical alert bracelets and necklaces that have buttons on them that allow the person to simply press it to call for help when needed. These pieces of jewelry often have important medical information about the person as well, such as allergies or medications that are taken. A medical ID dog tag necklace is an option as well. The dog tag hangs on the necklace and has the person’s name, phone number, address, and pertinent health information in the event of an emergency. There are numerous benefits as to having a dog tag on a necklace compared to only have a slender piece of metal or plastic with only abbreviations or a few words of information.
If the person is in a car accident, then emergency workers can look at the tag to see the name and allergy information as well as other details that can include medical … Read the rest

Scoliosis is a condition which I am personally hugely passionate about. Scoliosis is most prominent in teenagers, and particularly for the young girls. And as a parent, I can’t imagine what it’s like to realize, and to be sat in the room when you get the diagnosis that your child has scoliosis.

Your future well-being depends on how you take care of your body now, so why not start early?

Here are a few easy prevention methods to get you started.
