Fins Attached Partners with Dr. Peter Klimley for a Biology of Sharks and Rays Program: Course to Take Place on the Expedition Vessel Sharkwater

Fins Attached, Marine Research and Conservation non-profit, is excited to announce a partnership with well-known Marine Biologist, Dr. Peter Klimley, a scientist known lovingly as Dr. Hammerhead. An educational marine biology course on sharks and rays will take place on Fins Attached expedition vessel, the Sharkwater in the Eastern Tropical Pacific in the summer of 2019.

Dr. A. Peter Klimley has studied sharks for over three decades and has written over 60 scientific articles on the behavior and ecology of sharks and rays. The topics of his studies have ranged from the complex social habits and keen navigational abilities of hammerhead sharks to the feeding tactics and communication behavior of white sharks. Dr. Klimley realizes that the partnership with Fins Attached is an ideal way to help students learn about sharks and rays, studying in their natural habitat.

"Although I am now retired from UC Davis, my passion for sharks and marine biology has not waned,” stated Dr. Klimley. “Partnering with Fins Attached is a way for me to continue to contribute to the study and conservation of sharks and rays." During his graduate career, he spent many a day free diving among hammerhead sharks, and placing electronic tags on sharks to follow their movements around a seamount and away into the surrounding depths. Dr. Klimley’s pioneering studies of sharks, which in a sense is a manual on how to study sharks, “Secret Life of Sharks,” is available for purchase on Amazon.

Fins Attached has had a busy year since April 2017, when Fins Attached, acquired and launched the vessel Sharkwater, named after the documentary Sharkwater in honor of friend and award-winning filmmaker, the late Rob Stewart. Since then, the Sharkwater has hosted a few private research expeditions and even hosted the remaining Sharkwater filming crew to finish shooting Sharkwater Extinction. Hosting a college-level course on the Sharkwater vessel is a natural next step for Fins Attached.

“We are very excited to have Dr. Klimley on board with us,” began Dr Alex Antoniou, founder of Fins Attached. “This will help fulfill a key mission for Fins Attached, to educate future marine scientist to ultimately help protect these vulnerable animals."

Another Dr. Klimley book, “Biology of Sharks and Rays,” is also available for purchase on Amazon.com and it is the textbook for the upcoming course. If the public would like to learn more about marine conservation, visit finsattached.org. Dr. Klimley will be in attendance at the annual Fins Attached Gala in Denver on February 9, 2019. Donate today and help save ocean wildlife by contributing to the fight against sharks being mercilessly finned. Sharks play a vital role to the health of the marine environment, which ultimately affects all life on earth. To become a sponsor of the course and support marine biology students to enroll, contact info(at)finsattached.org.

As Rob Stewart once put it, "Conservation is the preservation of human life on earth and that above all else is worth fighting for."

Safe & Effective Treatment of Facial Veins Large or Small - A Guide To Treating Face Veins

‘A Guide To Treating Face Veins,’ by Ronald Bush, MD, FACS, and Peggy Bush, APRN, is the first book dedicated solely to the treatment of facial veins. In the book they explain their vast clinical expertise in this widely misunderstood field of venous disease. Just published, it is essential for all practitioners considering treatment of even the smallest veins of the face.

With emphasis on the complex vascular and communicating venous network of the face, safe and effective methods of treatment are discussed in a step-by-step process and ample guidance is given to help avoid complications.

The majority of larger blue (reticular) veins of the face are resistant to laser applications. Surgical approaches leave bruises for weeks and are unsuccessful in many patients.

Sclerotherapy, in the foamed state properly administered, is the most effective treatment of larger veins and minimal sequalae occur after treatment. As outlined in the book, by controlling the flow and direction of the injected foam sclerosant, facial veins can be treated in a safe manner. In most patients, only one treatment is necessary.

“This concise book should be studied by anyone who treats or desires to treat veins of the face.” Stephen F. Daugherty, MD, FACS, FACPh, RVT, RPhS, Veincare Centers of Tennessee.

“For any clinician considering treating veins of the face this illustrated treatise is an excellent resource for the proper and safe treatment of facial veins.” Joseph Raffeto, MD, West Roxbury, Massachusetts.

Gulf Breeze Recovery on a Common Medication Becoming a Threat for Overdose

Gabapentin, on the market since 1993 and sold under the brand name Neurontin, is a nonopioid medication approved to treat seizure disorders and nerve pain like that commonly associated with shingles. Recently gabapentin has been showing up in a disturbing number of overdose deaths.

In an all too familiar story, a drug initially viewed as safe is being abused and contributing to overdose deaths. Once considered a substance that had little potential for abuse, gabapentin is being recreationally abused with sometimes deadly results. As opioids become harder to access, individuals are using and misusing gabapentin. Doctors, looking for alternatives to prescribe for pain due to stronger regulations on opioids, are prescribing gabapentin for pain but are sometimes unaware of the drug’s abuse potential. Kentucky became the first state to classify gabapentin as a Schedule 5 drug after it was detected in one-third of overdose deaths in 2016. Unlike opioids, no antidote is available for an overdose of gabapentin.

People often mix gabapentin with other drugs, saying that, when used in conjunction with opioids, it will increase their high. Research estimates show that between 15 to 25 percent of opioid abusers also use gabapentin.

In 2004, Warner-Lambert, the company who originally manufactured gabapentin, pled guilty to charges that it promoted gabapentin for multiple unapproved uses. Their aggressive marketing encouraged prescribing gabapentin for migraines, attention deficit disorder, bipolar disorder, and Lou Gehrig’s disease. The company agreed to pay over 0 million to settle those charges.

Pharmacy giant Pfizer purchased Warner-Lambert in 2000 and continues to sell gabapentin under the brand name Neurontin. In a statement, the company says that they recognize the importance of preventing misuse and will work with health officials to monitor safety. In addition to Kentucky’s action of classifying gabapentin as a schedule 5 drug, several states including West Virginia, Minnesota and Ohio use their prescription databases to track gabapentin prescriptions. A federal response, including possible nationwide reclassification of gabapentin, is being suggested by some researchers, but no federal action has been taken at this time.

Top Woodland Hills Dentist Unveils Revolutionary Method of Combating Tooth Loss

Dr. Kanani is well known as one of the most popular family dentists in Woodland Hills and one of the top reasons for this is because he has engineered a revolutionary way to permanently solve the problem of tooth loss.

All patients have to do is to undergo dental implants and they never have to worry about suffering from missing teeth again. According to an article published on 1 June 2013 on Nature World News, “3.9 billion people suffer from dental problems” (http://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/2220/20130601/3-9-billion-people-suffer-dental-problems-report.htm). The article goes on to say that "tooth loss is often the final result when preventive or conservative treatments for tooth decay or gum disease fail or are unavailable.”

According to Dr. Kanani the statistics clearly speak for themselves. Bad oral health is rampant throughout the world and the United States is no exception. According to this general doctor in Woodland Hills, there are certain oral surgery methods that can be taken to combat tooth loss, one of which is getting dental implants. Here is some information on undergoing dental implants with Dr. Kanani.

What Are Dental Implants? 
Commonly known as the long term solution to tooth loss, a dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into the patient’s jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. According to Dr. Kanani, the ideal candidate for a dental implant should be in good general and oral health. However, some patients who have been living with missing teeth for extended periods of time suffer from moderate to severe bone loss. This means that they have to undergo block bone graft surgery before getting dental implants. A small block of bone will be removed from another part of the body, typically from the ribs, and placed into the jaw to form a solid base into where the titanium dental implant is placed.

Dental Implants With Dr. Kanani 
Dr. Kanani has designed a brilliant technique of inserting dental implants without requiring the patient to undergo block bone graft surgery. This reduces the total dental implants cost by up to ,000. The significantly reduced rate gives many patients the opportunity to afford this expensive and lengthy procedure. Dr. Kanani’s new method is called the Flap-Less/Drill-Less Surgery method. This family dentist in Woodland Hills will use a series of dental instruments to expand the jawbone. The dental implant will be placed into the gap that is formed. As opposed to conventional methods of getting dental implants, Dr. Kanani’s way does not involve cutting and drilling, thus significantly reducing his patients’ healing time. Not only that, patients who choose to undergo oral surgery with Dr. Kanani will be treated to some of the finest dental equipment and staff in the country.

Dr. Kanani is offering a complimentary consultation for first time patients. Additionally in line with Mother’s Day, he is also offering dental implants starting from the very affordable rate of 9.00. Make an appointment with this Woodland Hills dentist by calling (818) 579-9899 or heading to http://www.woodlandhillsdentalspa.com.

Top General Dentist In Woodland Hills Dr. Kaveh Kanani Unveils an Innovative and Affordable Method To Insert Dental Implants

Dr. Kaveh Kanani D.D.S. is the head of Kanani Dental Group, the most popular family dentistry clinic in Woodland Hills. This well established general dentist has recently unveiled an inventive method of inserting dental implants.

The goal of dental implants is to replace missing teeth. When a tooth is missing for an extended period of time, the jawbone that used to hold the root of the tooth suffers from moderate to severe bone loss. When this happens, the jawbone is not able to support the implantation of a titanium dental implant as this requires drilling into a significantly eroded and weakened jawbone. The patient will then have to undergo what is known as a block bone graft surgery where he or she is placed under anesthesia and a small piece of bone is removed. The bone is typically taken from the ribs, chin, hip or cadaver. This block of bone will then be placed into the jawbone to create a thicker platform where the dentist can then drill and place the dental implant into.

This is when Dr. Kanani’s method showcases its superiority. Known as the Flap-less/Drill-less Surgery Method, it allows patients to forgo the need to undergo block bone graft surgery. There is no need to drill into the jawbone to place the dental implant as Dr. Kanani uses a series of dental instruments to expand the jawbone until a sufficient pocket has formed. All this is done without losing any bone tissue as Dr. Kanani has figured out a way to condense the outer bone into a thicker wall which creates more support for the implant. He will then place the dental implant into the gap, suture it close and give the patient several months to recover. Once the gap has healed, Dr. Kanani will place a replacement tooth over the implant, giving the patient a perfect set of teeth.

The innovative aspect of this method is that its creator has successfully engineered a way to insert dental implants without the need to drill into the jawbone and cut the gum open. This promises the patient a much shorter healing period, less pain and a less hefty dental bill. When it comes to Dr. Kanani’s method, patients need not undergo block bone graft surgery and this saves them thousands of dollars in dental implant costs.

There is no doubt that Dr. Kanani has significantly transformed the way that dentists and patients alike approach dental implants. The Flap-less/Drill-less Surgery Method is a clever solution to a worldwide problem as it offers patients the chance to recover a full set of teeth again at a fraction of the cost and pain that it is usually associated with.

Currently, Dr. Kanani and his team at Kanani Dental Group are inviting new patients into their fold by offering complimentary appointments to first timers.

Aeroflow Healthcare, a leading durable medical equipment (DME) provider and Inc. 5000 fastest growing company, today announced the acquisition of Wheelock Home Medical's continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) resupply program. This line of business ensures much-needed medical devices are replaced regularly to fully adhere to patients’ sleep apnea treatment.

Over time, CPAP supplies can deteriorate as oil from patients’ skin can cause CPAP masks and other parts to break down, allowing air to leak. As a result, patients are unable to receive their prescribed air pressure for effective treatment and need replacements. In older CPAP supplies, harmful pathogens, mold, and allergens can collect, making regular replacements crucial for overall health.

The acquisition of Wheelock Home Medical’s program allows CPAP resupply patients in Michigan access to Aeroflow’s advanced resupply process, providing patients with new, sanitized equipment based on their individual replacement schedules. Wheelock Home Medical has planned the transition of care for these patients as a function of closing its business.

“By acquiring Wheelock Home Medical’s CPAP resupply line, Aeroflow expands its geographic reach and is now better equipped to continue its ongoing mission of improving patients’ quality of life,” said Andrew Amoth, Corporate Development Associate, Aeroflow Healthcare. “The transition of Wheelock’s patient base was executed in a very patient-friendly manner, and Aeroflow will ensure the patients are provided with the service and attention required to support their sleep therapy.”

In order to provide more patients with exceptional care, Aeroflow will continue to expand via mergers and acquisitions with a strategy mutually beneficial to Aeroflow and the companies and lines of business it acquires. Most importantly, smaller businesses will receive resources to improve care for future and existing patients.

About Aeroflow Healthcare

Aeroflow Healthcare was founded Asheville, NC in 2001 as a home oxygen provider, and has since grown to become one of the leading durable medical equipment providers nationwide. For three consecutive years, Aeroflow has been ranked on Inc. Magazine’s List of 5000 Fastest Growing Companies.

How Microscopic Remedies Called Liposomes May Reduce Painful Toxins and Inflammation in Neurological Lyme Disease Infections

Two Frogs Healing Center, a natural treatment clinic for getting rid of persistent tick infections like Lyme disease, will be hosting the Getting Rid of Lyme Disease Issues with Liposomes Evening Lecture on Wednesday December 5th from 6pm - 9pm at the Frederick Innovative Technology Center Inc. (FITCI)

Lyme Disease is the number one vector borne illness in the US and in the US armed forces. Lyme Disease bacteria have developed multiple methods to become resistant to antibiotic treatment. Despite taking antibiotics or other remedies for months or years, these patients diagnosed with Lyme disease continue report relapsing symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, inflammation. Fortunately, research has shown that specific essential oils are more effective at killing persistent forms of Lyme disease in lab studies. Delivering these oils in microparticle remedies called "liposomes" are having promising clinical results in reducing neurological Lyme disease symptoms. Due to their tiny particle size, liposomal remedies are able to penetrate deeper into the brain, inside cells, and under biofilms where pathogens like to hide. At the recent International Lyme Disease and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) 2018 Conference, liposomal essential oils were identified as one of the remedies that were helping Dr. Horowitz's chronic Lyme patients to recover more quickly. For over eight years, liposomal essential oils have been more effective at significantly reducing neurological and toxic symptoms in our patients diagnosed with Lyme disease.

At our clinic, we have successfully treated hundreds of patients diagnosed with Lyme disease and multiple tick borne co-infections. At the "Reducing Lyme Disease Pain by 75%+ with Liposomes" lecture we'll also be sharing how innovative treatments like electrical frequency scans help to identify the real underlying issues, enhance the effectiveness of treatments and remedies for each person.

"Liposomal essential oil remedies have the unique ability to penetrate into the brain, cells, and through biofilms to relieve pain and toxins from Lyme disease and co-infections," - Greg Lee, President Two Frogs Healing Center. He will be sharing about the huge improvements that patients have received through liposomes and other treatments at the "Reducing Lyme Disease Pain by 75%+ with Liposomes" talk on Wednesday December 5th.

About the Two Frogs Healing Center 
The Two Frogs Healing Center has been a provider of natural microparticle "liposome" remedies and treatments for helping patients to stop their persistent infections including Lyme disease, viruses, mold, bacteria, and parasites. Using advanced electrical scanning technology, The Two Frogs Healing Center is able to identify the signatures of underlying pathogens that are causing relapsing symptoms.

Two Frogs also produces targeted, customized microparticle remedies to address multiple chronic infections, toxins, and painful symptoms. Its treatments and remedies encompass Frequency Specific Microcurrent, cold laser, acupuncture, cupping and bloodletting, craniosacral therapy, targeted Liposomal remedies, essential oils, homeopathic remedies, antimicrobial herbs, and detoxification supplements. The Two Frogs Healing Center has served the Lyme disease community since 2006 and has a clinic in the Frederick Innovative Technology Center Inc.
