This, in addition to a full market review and sourcing exercise, resulted in the selection of IQNavigator as the company’s VMS provider.

“Cameron is synonymous with quality in the oil and gas industry, and our software will enable the company to manage its growing workforce more effectively across the globe,” said Joe Juliano, president and CEO, IQNavigator. “Cameron runs its business on technologies like SAP, and IQNavigator’s configurable SAP integrations, enabled via our industry leading IQNtegrator platform, will significantly streamline Cameron’s business processes.

NutritionInstructorMD Presents New Ways on How to Manage Cholesterol

(PRWEB) February 18, 2015

The Importance of Cholesterol Management

Cholesterol is one such substance that should be taken seriously. Proper cholesterol management can make the difference between a full active lifestyle and one plagued with avoidable health problems.

Cholesterol is a waxy fat-like substance in the cells of the body. Cholesterol contributes to the structures of the cell walls and helps to make up some of the digestive acids that break down the food that’s eaten. It also helps produce Vitamin D and some hormones. The body naturally makes cholesterol, but it’s also in the foods eaten.

There are essentially two kinds of cholesterol to be concerned with. High density lipoprotein, known as HDL, is often referred to as the good cholesterol. Low density lipoprotein is called LDL, and it is considered to be a bad kind of cholesterol. Excessive LDL in the blood stream cause the buildup of plaques in the arteries. This can lead to complications from high blood pressure. Over time, high cholesterol levels contribute to heart disease, stroke, coronary artery disease, and heart attacks. HDL helps to flush the LDL from the system.

It is important to consider cholesterol levels and have them checked by a doctor. While a doctor may prescribe medications to aid in cholesterol management, these drugs often have significant side effects that may lead to weight gain, higher blood sugar levels and type two diabetes. It is better to control cholesterol levels through lifestyle changes whenever possible.

Getting sufficient exercise helps to reduce unwanted weight gain and levels of stored fat in the body. Maintaining proper hydration levels also purges toxins from the body, but the most important factor to consider is your dietary strategy. Changes in eating habits can reduce the amount of unhealthy cholesterol one consumes. Avoid foods that are high in saturated fats, and eat more things that are high in fiber. Foods that are high in unsaturated fats like avocado, nuts, and olive oil are beneficial. Add green vegetables like broccoli and spinach. Include fish in a diet at least two times a week.

Even if not at risk now, take each diet seriously. The long term consequences of avoiding healthy eating habits can impair ones plans for the future.

Vital Health Details How To Recognize Early Warning Signs Of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Provides Tips To Manage Symptoms


Orland Park, Illinois (PRWEB) December 05, 2014

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disease of the autoimmune system. RA occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the synovium — the lining of the membranes that surround the joints. Joint erosion may follow.

Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC, Certified Gluten Practitioner, and director of Vital Health, Inc. explained, “Early RA tends to affect the smaller joints first, such as the joints that attach the fingers and toes feet. As the disease progresses, symptoms often spread to the wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, hips and shoulders. RA can affect the organs as well.”

RA signs and symptoms may vary in severity and may even come and go. Periods of increased disease activity, called flares, alternate with periods of relative remission. Over time, RA can cause joints to deform and shift out of place.

“Through early detection, proper management of RA can be used to optimize the health status throughout the body. If a person has early warning symptoms of RA along with a family history of RA, or already has a diagnosed autoimmune disease, it is essential they start supporting the body in order to prevent progression of the disease,” remarked Dr. Griffin.

Early Warning Signs and Symptoms of RA

1. One or more finger-knuckle joints will swell. Redness and warmth of the knuckle joints may be present.

2. Tenderness on the balls of feet, even swelling under the foot. Pain may be worse when first getting out of bed.

3. Flu-like symptoms such as low-grade fever, fatigue and possible weight loss.

4. Bumps on the elbows. Firm bumps of tissue under the skin on the arms (rheumatoid nodules).

5. Joints are stiff for more than one hour in the morning. Stiffness that lasts for several hours is generally a symptom of inflammatory arthritis, and is typical of RA. You may also feel stiffness after any period of prolonged inactivity like napping or sitting.

6. Inflammation of tendons creating pressure on your nerves. This may cause numbness, tingling, or a burning feeling in your hands referred to as carpal tunnel syndrome or in the feet as plantar fasciitis.

7. Other symptoms can include dry mouth or dry itchy inflamed eyes, chest pain when breathing and difficulty sleeping.

Prevention and Symptom Management

1. Avoid Foods That Trigger Inflammation

While some foods seem to ease inflammation, compounds in others have been found to increase it. The following foods have been attributed to raising inflammation levels in the body and should be avoided:

    Fried and processed foods
    Dairy products
    Sugar and refined carbohydrates
    Salt and preservatives
    Corn oil
    Alcohol and tobacco
    Eating hamburgers, chicken, or other meats that have been grilled or fried at high temperatures can raise the amount of advanced glycation end products (AEGs) in the blood. High levels of AGEs have been detected in people with inflammation (1)

2. Gluten’s Connection With RA

“RA is an autoimmune disease. Gluten is one of the most common food sensitivity linked to autoimmune disease,” explained Dr. Griffin who is a Certified Gluten Practitioner and trained expert in gluten and the harmful effects it can have on the body. “Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease linkage needs to be ruled out if a person has an autoimmune disease. The elimination of gluten in the diet can be so powerful that there is hope to lessen the systems of RA, possibly eliminate the need for multiple medications, and most importantly prevent other autoimmune disease.”

Symptoms of arthritis, which include joint pain and stiffness, are also symptoms of the immune response caused by celiac disease. People who are gluten sensitive or who have been diagnosed with celiac disease may experience joint pain, swelling, and stiffness if they eat foods with gluten.

These similar symptoms make celiac disease difficult to diagnose. In fact, it’s commonly confused with other conditions, such as arthritis. It is important to discuss with your doctor all of your symptoms even those that may seem unrelated. In addition to looking at the joints, especially if you have a family history of celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, it is important that the intestines are not overlooked for they are often the root cause.

3. Nourish the Body With Nutritional Supplements

Dr. Griffin explains, “Certain nutritional substances can help alleviate RA. Addressing nutritional deficiencies that have been genetically linked to RA and other autoimmune diseases can help prevent the diseases or slow down its progression. The most commonly observed vitamin and mineral deficiencies in patients with RA include:

    Vitamin D deficiency has been linked with autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and type 1 diabetes. Try ProVitality Vitamin D.
    Zinc alleviates joint swelling and morning stiffness associated with RA. Many people with RA are deficient in Zinc.
    Vitamin B12 deficiency does not cause arthritis but may worsen anemia in patients with RA. Anemia is a common problem in patients with RA, according to the National Anemia Action Council. RA patients may experience anemia because of gastrointestinal bleeding caused by the chronic use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. (2) Additionally, B6 can help elevate inflammation. Vital Essence offers B-12 Folate and Methyl-B12 Lozenge. Autoimmune conditions frequently have the MTHFR gene link, which inhibits the methylation (absorption) of B12/folic acid/B6 necessitating the need for the methylated forms of B12 and folic acid.
    Folic Acid is a B vitamin that promotes health and supports the body’s metabolism. Some common RA drugs interfere with how the body uses folic acid. As a result, many RA patients become deficient in folic acid.
    Coconut Oil appears to reduce damage caused by the overactive immune system. Try ProVitality Coconut Oil, its rich antioxidants formula can help reduce inflammation associated with arthritis.

Vital Health, Inc. suggests talking to physician before beginning any supplement regimen.
