In his recent article “What You Need to Know Before Getting a CAT Scan,” AC content producer Scott Kessman provides a clear, well written explanation of what a patient will experience while undergoing a Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT) scan.
Medical tests and procedures are hardly fun, and the anxiety that a lot of patients feel before having a new health care experience can be as or more troublesome than the visit itself.
For many of these patients, however, much of the trepidation they feel can be eased if they know what they’re in for before showing up and putting their scribble on the sign in sheet.
In my opinion, articles like Scott’s are valuable assets to the writing community, and they go a long way to provide those patients who feel more comfortable facing new experiences when they are properly informed with the information they need to achieve that comfort level.
His article is a clear, well written, informative description of what the process of having a CAT scan will entail, what the patient can expect to experience before during and after the scan, and a little basic information about the scan itself.
No stranger to the topic of Health and Wellness, Scott has written articles on a variety of topics helpful to the health conscious reader. Check out his take on the health benefits of herbal teas, or read about the claims that consuming a bowl of Miso Soup a day can help to reduce the risk of cancer.
AC content producer Midwestgirl discusses the DAT program in which children with mental and physical disabilities, as well as terminal illnesses, are brought to participating marine parks to spent time swimming with dolphins in aquatic tanks.
It is believed that there is some healing and restorative value to these dolphin swims, and that there have been studies conducted that show promising results.
I thought Midwest girl’s article was a very interesting and nicely written piece, and described a fascinating topic.
The use of dolphins, long known to possess superior intellect and high capacity for empathy with other species, for the improvement of the wellness of sick and disables children was a new topic to me, and I enjoyed reading about it. You may want to give it a read too.
Midwestgirl has also contributed widely to the topic of Health and Wellness. Some of her other articles published here on Associated Content include looks at magnet therapy and reflexology, and discussions about angina, anxiety disorders, anorexia nervosa, and endometriosis.
She has also written about ways to effectively reduce the amount of money patients spend on health care costs and about the power of prayer to heal. You may want to take a look at some of her other articles.
Whether you’re looking for specific information about health concerns or for some ideas about preventative medicine and healthy living, it’s been and interesting week for submissions to the Health and Wellness section of Associated Content.
I look forward to the opportunity to spotlight more interesting and informative submissions from AC’s content producers in the weeks to come.
