A full-color guide to using crystal wands in bodywork and energy medicine

• Explores the healing properties and indications for more than 70 crystal wands
• Explains how the shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal’s energetic effects and provides long-lasting results
• Provides step-by-step instructions for crystal-wand techniques in massage and reflexology, in energy work such as aura tuning and chakra balancing, and for protection, power, and relaxation

The healing powers of crystals and gemstones were known more than eight hundred years ago by the mystic Hildegard von Bingen and as far back as two millennia ago by the Greek physician Dioskurides. In this full-color illustrated guide, Ewald Kliegel explains the benefits of incorporating crystal wands into your bodywork and healing practice and details the techniques of doing so.

Exploring the energetics of crystals and their interactions with the physical and energy bodies, including the overall sense of well-being they impart that underlies their other beneficial effects, the author explains how the versatile shape of a crystal wand amplifies the crystal’s energetic effects and offers advantages in massage and reflexology over other shapes of crystals and stones. The larger rounded end can act as a crystal sphere for massaging knots or large areas, whereas the tapered end is ideal for stimulating reflex zones, targeting acupressure points, and tracing meridian lines.

The Handbook for Credentialing Healthcare Providers

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on The Handbook for Credentialing Healthcare Providers
Feb 142018
 

This handbook enables your organization to systemize the tedious, ongoing, and mandatory process of credentialing your medical staff and to understand why you must! Healthcare organizations lose substantial revenue when providers on their medical staff are not properly credentialed. Payers have unique requirements for providers to satisfy before they will pay for services. Hospitals often face difficulty in getting the information from the provider and are challenged by a lack of systems for initial and ongoing verification and documentation. Administrators must weigh the cost benefits of in-house or outsourced credentialing and evaluate the options for software and other tools. Readers who use this handbook will feel confident and secure in their knowledge. Expanded description for online store: Healthcare organizations must have credentialed medical staffs to deliver their services. The reasons are two-fold: First, educated, licensed, experienced, and proven caregivers ensure that a hospital or medical practice is capable of delivering quality care. Secondly, payers require that the physicians and other licensed healthcare professionals are qualified and licensed to work with their patients. Before receiving payment for services, the provider must have specific credentials for providing that service. Verifying and documenting the credentials of a healthcare provider is tedious, ongoing, and mandatory. An organization with a large medical staff may struggle with keeping the credentialing function current, as many licenses have rolling expirations. Credentialing ensures that clinical practitioners are duly qualified, licensed, and board certified. It reports the history of malpractice claims, state-instituted sanctions, or other undesirable professional circumstances of providers. Credentialing and privileging of healthcare professionals protects patients and hospitals by minimizing the risk of medical errors that may result from the work of incompetent providers. It also undergirds the reputation and credibility of the institution in the eyes of providers and across the healthcare community. Further, credentialing with insurers forms the basis for reimbursement for professional services. Without the acceptance of the professional credentials of a provider, insurers and other third-party payers will not compensate his or her claims. The purpose of this book is to explain the necessity and to provide the process for the official documentation of each practitioner. The information presented in these chapters will serve as a practical resource for strengthening your organization’s credentialing function. Book Features! -Outlines the necessity for credentialing in the delivery of care and in attaining reimbursements for services provided -Explores options for in-house and outsourced credentialing function -Provides systematic process for ongoing credentialing operations Table of Contents Chapter 1: Credentialing The Foundation for Quality and Safety Chapter 2: Types of Credentialing Chapter 3: The Pros and Cons of Outsourcing Credentialing Chapter 4: Regulatory Requirements Chapter 5: Automated Payer and Medical Staff Credentialing System Chapter 6: Training for the Credentialing Function Chapter 7: Conclusion The Importance of the Credentialing Process

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on The Leishmaniases: Old Neglected Tropical Diseases
Feb 122018
 

Out of the 20 neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) prioritized by the World Health Organization, the leishmaniases rank in the top 3 among those caused by protozoa. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with a comprehensive and updated overview of all the aspects of leishmaniasis with a worldwide perspective – authors of many chapters include eminent scientists from both the Old and New Worlds. The chapters cover a wide range of topics, classically organized into biology and epidemiology, followed by clinical and control aspects. Following an introductory chapter intended to take the reader into the leishmaniasis complexity, a chapter on Leishmania taxonomy reports on the most recent advances in molecular and phylogenetic data. Parasite biology is then described in detail by means of two separate chapters devoted to phlebotomine vectors and reservoir hosts, respectively. The medical part of the book begins with a chapter on basic immunology and immunopathology associated with Leishmania infection, followed by a classical chapter on clinical aspects of different disease entities. The complexity of disease case management is presented by means of 3 chapters, respectively on diagnosis, treatment of visceral forms and treatment of tegumentary forms. Finally, the last chapter deals with the available approaches to control leishmaniasis and related public health issues.

Dysmenorrhea and Menorrhagia: A Clinician’s Guide

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Dysmenorrhea and Menorrhagia: A Clinician’s Guide
Feb 122018
 

Dysmenorrhea is estimated to effect upwards of 70% of women during their lifetime and “heavy menstrual periods” is one of the most frequently given reasons for hysterectomy in the United States. Despite the dramatic growth of dysmenorrhea treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSADs) in the 1980s, young women continue to go undiagnosed and under treated. The diagnosis and management of heavy menstrual bleeding has even poorer general understanding because of its more complicated etiologies. With a working knowledge of the underlying pathophysiology, all clinicians should be able to establish both the diagnosis and a credible treatment plan that will result in a significant chance of clinical improvement for most patients.
This book addresses the pathophysiologic underpinnings of both dysmenorrhea and menorrhagia and provides clinicians with practical approaches to establishing the diagnosis, proven tactics for successful therapeutic interventions and dealing with the challenging atypical case, and effective patient counseling. It teaches principles, including the role prostaglandins play in both conditions, as well as procedures, like surgical options and TENS, providing a balance of the practical and the esoteric. The inclusion of patient education and counseling materials additionally increases its usefulness for the busy clinician. This is an ideal guide for ob/gyn clinicians, residents, and trainees caring for patients with these common, but often misunderstood diseases.
