Understanding Cancer and it’s Treatments

Cancer Sucks

Cancer Sucks

A diagnosis of cancer isn’t a death sentence, and the 5-year survival rates continue to climb.  In 1975, the 5-year survival rate for breast cancer was 75%.  In 2016, it’s currently 89%.  Prostate cancer had a 65% survival rate, which is now up to nearly 100% survival rate.  But, just because the prospect of survival continues to climb doesn’t mean it’s not going to …

Healthcare Spam

Does This Product Really Kill Cancer (or Diabetes, Arthritis, or Other Diseases)?

It’s amazing how much spam some people get everyday.  Some of it ends up being for miracle cures for cancer, diabetes, arthritis, sexual dysfunction, and more.  Do these products you can order online really work?  If they’re selling them, obviously someone must be buying them – do they know something your medical professional doesn’t, or is hiding from you?  While …

Changes to the Site, Both Large and Small

You might or might not have noticed a change to the website: the domain name.  We moved from AdvancedMobileHealthcare.com to AMHCare.com a week ago, for a number of reasons. First off, in this day and age of mobile devices, long names are a lot harder to deal with.  Let’s face it, the more you have to type in a website’s name, …

Be Careful What You Read About Healthcare On Facebook

You’ve probably seen the posts you’re weird aunt makes: coconut oil cures cancer. Farts cure cancer. Leaving half an onion in your bedroom will cure any airborne ailment. Eucalyptus oil is as effective as commercial bug repellent. Some of them are repetitions of old wives tales of medicine or folk remedies, and some of them are brand new. Of course, …

MRSA

What Are “Superbugs,” And How Likely Are You To Be Affected?

Superbugs is a topic that makes the news off and on again, particularly strains of MRSA.  While it’s not part of your daily health concerns, the idea of contracting an infectious disease that is incredibly difficult to treat is worrisome.  But, what are they?

Davis Ray Sickmon, Jr, ADHD Sufferer

A Little Bit About Adult ADHD

Typically, when someone thinks about ADHD, one of two things comes to mind:  hyperactive children, or a forgetful adult.  Both mental images tend to miss the complexities of ADHD, particularly when dealing with it as an adult. Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder is a poly-genetic disorder (meaning it’s controlled by more than one gene), and if a parent had it, …
