    Healthcare sector is India’s one of largest sector which comprises of an extensive network of hospitals, medical or healthcare institutes and other medical services. Initially the healthcare sector in India remained in public domain but now many private players are also playing significant role in health-based services.

    Raising the consciousness towards nutrition in India, maintaining public health and improving the standard of living of the Indian people are some of the main responsibilities of the State and Centre government in India. A large number of government hospitals that provide healthcare facilities at subsidized rate are operating in different states in India. These hospitals are set up with an aim to provide adequate medical facilities to both a patient living poverty line as well to another prosperous patient.

    Primary healthcare in India is provided by the city and district hospitals and rural healthcare centers. Very often, these medical centers provide healthcare facilities free of cost. There are special provisions to handle grave healthcare issues such as malnutrition, immunization against various deadly diseases, pregnancy, child birth and postnatal care.

    In the recent times, India has witnessed major success in eradicating mass famines, however the country still suffers from serious problems of malnutrition and lack of health consciousness among Indian people. Improper sanitation facilities and inadequate water supply are few other problems which are adversely affecting healthcare in India.

    Fortunately, despite of all these perennial problems, the healthcare sector in India is growing at a rapid pace. In 2007, the healthcare market in India was estimated was estimated at US $35 billion. It is expected that the healthcare sector in India will double and reach US $70 billion by 2012. Rising income levels and a growing elderly population are some of the factors augmenting growth of healthcare sector in India.

    India has also carved a niche for itself as an excellent medical tourism destination in the past few years. Every year thousands of international visitors come to India to get adequate medical treatment in India. Some of the most common treatments are heart surgery, knee transplant, cosmetic surgery and dental surgery. In order to remain competitive, healthcare providers in India are looking at improving their operational efficiency and are providing value added medical experience to patients.

    ASA Opts for True Customer Service Over Phone Recordings
    The Pittsburgh-based health care company Automated Security Alert has a shockingly good record for taking care of their clients. The health care technology company is devoted to keeping senior citizens and physically disabled persons in their own home instead of in assisted living – and their clients have a 46.42% lesser rate of hospitalization. Far from using only push button medical alarms to care from their clients, they also offer electronically monitored medication dispensers, monitored smoke detectors, fall detectors, and many other advanced products. So for a company that embraces so many forms of advanced technology it is quite surprising to think that they would refuse to use any form of modern technology, but Automated Security Alert has a firm belief that when someone calls them on the phone they owe them the right to speak to a human being. In an era of frustrating and time consuming pre-recorded telephone menus, Automated Security Alert refuses to conform to the idea that people should be forced to communicate their needs to a computerized system. However, this does not only apply to office business hours only, it applies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Jason Seyler, director of Life Safety commented on the refreshing policy, -With many companies using Interactive Voice Response technologies, consumers are rarely ever able to speak with a live person during the first few minutes of the call . . . Automated Security Alert does not use these technologies due to the importance of our consumers. Live people answer our phones at all times, day and night. Subscribers can call our office at 1-800-338-7114 at any time with any questions or concerns that they have.- Automated Security Alert, Inc., has provided freedom and security since 1988 to over 60,000 consumers through the use of technology and services that enable seniors, physically-challenged persons and recovering patients to maintain an independent lifestyle in their homes.

    For those with aging loved ones in Denver, Colorado, you may be in a situation where a parent or elder has been living at home, but suddenly has a medical condition, such as a heart attack or a stroke, from which he or she needs time at home for recuperation. Many seniors who have their own homes wish to remain in them for as long as possible as they age, but this can be dangerous if they need special care during times of ill health. If family is in Denver, they are often a primary source of the care needed, but if the family resides out of state, or if the local family needs a bit of time to rest and take care of themselves, it makes sense to utilize the services of a Denver home health care provider.

    Wheelchair sports were first recognized in 1957, with the first Wheelchair Games taking place in New York City. Since then, the sport has evolved from wheelchair basketball and wheelchair soccer, to extreme sports that are utterly unpredictable. That is why Wheelchair Extreme Sports have earned such respect and are emerging as competitive sports that are to be taken seriously. The best thing about Wheelchair Extreme Sport is that it doesnt demand a crazy amount of media attention or ask to be recognized, but simply continues to make its mark by achieving incredible feats never believed to be possible.

    The thrills of 4-wheel downhill mountain biking is mind-blowing. Its secret is a 4 wheelers low centre of gravity and stability, which proves to be phenomenally useful on the bends. The scene is rife with techno-weenies, who know all the ways in which to invent and re-invent faster 4-wheelers, guaranteed to show any gravel track what real speed feels like. The fitness of wheelchair athletes is remarkable, not to mention their outstanding upper body strength and relentless endurance on epic 4-wheel races. If seeing is believing, is a phrase that applies to you, then the UK is where its at. The recently founded, Rough Riderz club, aims to promote downhill biking whether its on 2 or 4 wheels and to create an all-inclusive sporting environment, because, lets get real whether youre going to jet down a steep dirt track at a speed where only tunnel vision is possible, on 2 or 4 wheels, youre still pushing the limits of, extreme, and thats what its all about.

    August 26 2010, was an unforgettable day for the wheelchair sports arena: Aaron Fotheringham completed the worlds first-ever double backflip in a wheelchair. It was sick. The 18 year old from Las Vegas earned himself the nickname, Wheels, because of his unrelenting passion for all things extreme. For athletes like Aaron, its always about conquering a higher ramp and performing the ultimate power-slide while churning the maximum amount of adrenaline through his system. Wicked.

    Extreme sports are the driving force behind the evolution of the sporting world because its an environment that redefines and recreates itself over and over again. The disabled mobility sports arena is doing just that defying physical limitations, staring danger in the face, and saying, bring it on. Although Wheelchair Extreme Sports havent emerged as prominently in South Africa, as in Europe and the USA, I hear that the adrenaline-bug travels fast. So watch this space

    Quinoa is an ancient, South American grain that has recently become popular all across the United States. And with good reason as we will explore in this article all about quinoa nutrition facts. Here’s a little historical titbit for you. Quinoa was prized by the ancient Inca in Peu. That’s not surprising since it sustained them for over 5000 years.

    One of the reasons why it has always been so popular is the fact that it is packed with protein. This means that it has all the amino acids we; including one names lysine. Quinoa actually has plenty of this vital amino acid. The reason we need amino acids is that proteins are made up of them and your body needs them to make and maintain muscle tissue. In our current diet, we get most of our protein from animal products. Only a handful of grains and other plant based foods contain all the different types of protein blocks we need. It is one of the reasons Quinoa is called the mother of all grains and is classified as a superfood.

    Quinoa is also good for you because it is full of fiber and low in sodium and cholesterol. It also contains plenty of Iron, Magnesium, Phosperous, Manganese, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E and Niacine. All those nutrients make it a very healthy whole grain choice that also happens to be low-calorie. NO wonder it’s a superfood.

    Quinoa is perfect when you are trying to lose weight since both the fiber and protein in it will keep you full while you are enjoying a low-calorie dish. You can cook it instead of rice, potatoes, pasta and other white starches. It’s better for you and you won’t have to worry about sugar cravings later.

    If you need to stick to gluten free foods, quinoa is your best friend. You can make anything from breads and puddings to risotto-like side dishes and even breakfast cereal (similar to oatmeal) out of it. It’s also delicious on salads and gives a plain old plate of lettuce and vegetables some extra texture and flavor.

    Still not convinced this is worth a try? Let’s see what you can expect to gain from it. Here are some of the benefits that speak for incorporating this super food into your diet. It can improve your heart health and is a great source of antioxidants which may prevent cancer. Lignans can also be found in quinoa which have been shown to protect your heart from and keep it strong. Last but not least, let’s not forget that it is also a whole grain food which I don’t have to tell you is an important part of a healthy diet.
