Product Description

Das Buch vermittelt sowohl die Grundlagen als auch vielfältige Anregungen für die praktische Umsetzung des biopsychosozialen Modells in seiner aktuellsten Form: der Theorie der Körper-Seele-Einheit. <br />Diese ermöglicht der wissenschaftlichen Medizin die gleichzeitige Erfassung und Nutzung von körperlichen, psychischen und Lebenswelt bezogenen Wirkfaktoren. Für die Praxis bedeutet dies eine parallel organisierte Diagnostik („Simultandiagnostik“) und eine damit verbundene parallel organisierte Therapie („Simultantherapie“). Eine solche multidimensionale Behandlung setzt nicht nur auf die medikamentösen und chirurgisch-technischen Interventionen, sondern auch auf eine gelingende Arzt-Patient-Kommunikation, welche als sprechende Medizin die dritte Säule der Humanmedizin bildet. <br />Damit entwickelt sich die wissenschaftlich begründete Medizin von einer vorwiegend biomedizinisch orientierten Ingenieursmedizin zu einer Humanmedizin, in welcher der kranke Mensch sowohl als Objekt („der Organismus als komplexe Maschine“) als auch als Subjekt („der Mensch als denkendes, fühlendes und handelndes Wesen“) Beachtung findet. Dies wird als biopsychosoziale Medizin bezeichnet und bildet die Vorlage für eine integrierte Medizin des 21. Jahrhunderts.

Whether you're planning to travel through Mexico for pleasure or business; making plans to move to Mexico; making plans for your future retirement; a patient in need of affordable medical care, a disabled US Veteran, or an expatriate already living and working or retired (full or part-time) in Mexico, The English Speaker's Guide to Medical Care in Mexico contains a wealth of valuable and up-to-date knowledge that will help you to understand and navigate the healthcare systems and medical culture of Mexico. <br /><br />This comprehensive 256-page guide, now in its 4th edition, is a wide-ranging compendium of information, facts, contacts and local knowledge concerning healthcare matters in Mexico.<br /><br />Topics include an introduction to and history of medical care in Mexico, the Mexican public health system (IMSS & Seguro Popular), private medical care, finding physicians and specialist, clinics and hospitals, dental care, pharmacies and buying medicines, healthcare costs and insurance, medical tourism, programs for US Veterans, Medicaid and Medicare, elective surgery options, vaccinations, types of insurance, retirement options including assisted living and nursing care, alternative medical treatments and more.<br /><br />In addition to the thoroughly comprehensive range of healthcare topics, the book also contains a dedicated section with healthcare advice for travelers in Mexico, alerts about current disease risks in certain areas, alcoholism, procedures for complaints about the healthcare you may receive, and a section about the 'dark side' of healthcare in Mexico--pointing out the lesser advertised risks and cons associated with healthcare and how to separate the genuine healthcare options from the hype.<br /><br />As healthcare and its costs become an increasing concern for millions of people living in developed economies, this guide explains what Mexico offers. It is an indispensable guide that shows you what healthcare options are available now, and how to access them, whether you are in Mexico on a visit, planning to live in Mexico or living there now part-time or full-time.<br /><br />Early Reviews<br /><br />“This comprehensive, well-organized, thoroughly researched and eminently readable book demystifies the complexities of medical care in Mexico.

Highly recommended.” —Patrick Goodness, CEO, World Medical Guides<br /><br />“The English Speaker’s Guide to Medical Care in Mexico contains an absolute treasure-trove of information for the person seriously seeking comprehensive information on medical care in Mexico. In fact, it provides answers to literally dozens and dozens of questions that my clients ask every day. Now all I need to do is direct them to your incredible "Guide" and viola! I can go on about my other tasks….  Congratulations on a job very well done.  —Carrol Flood Delano, La Paloma B&B, Ajijic, Mexico”<br /><br />“This Guide to Medical Care in Mexico provides an encyclopedia worth of useful information clearly and concisely. Its full of practical and well researched information on how best to take advantage of Mexican health services. As a resident of Arizona it is a welcome and much needed resource. So many in my area can’t afford health care and I’ve been recommending this book as an easy way to gain the confidence needed to seek treatment options across the border.”  —Diana, Tucson, AZ<br />

It is estimated that Anxiety Disorders are some of the most prevalent mental conditions in the world today, and also the most undiagnosed and untreated.<br /><br />While many of us do suffer from anxieties and worries from time to time, how and when do you know that the anxiety, worry and fear that you are feeling have long since ceased to become “normal” anxiety and grown to a full-blown Anxiety Disorder?<br />Anxiety Disorder Explained by Frederick Earlstein brings together many of the current information, news and research that we have regarding diagnosis, symptoms, treatment methods, types, and causes pertaining to Anxiety Disorders. The aim is to spread information about this disorder so that ultimately, the appropriate treatment will be provided for those individuals who are in need of it.<br /><br />Left undiagnosed and untreated, Anxiety Disorders can severely intrude into a person’s day-to-day activities and limit his or her ability to grow and develop, whether at school, at work, or in social relationships. It is hoped that the spread of information regarding this disorder can help those who suffer from Anxiety Disorders but are unaware of it or do not know how to deal with the anxieties they are feeling.<br /><br />Anxiety Disorder Types, Diagnosis, Symptoms, Treatment, Causes, Neurocognitive Disorders, Prognosis, Research, History, Myths, and More!

Can you remember, pronounce, and spell the active ingredient in the last medicine you took or gave your child? If you’re an administrator, can everyone in your facility who provides patients with medications spell and pronounce those medications correctly?<br /><br />If you have any doubt—whether you’re reading this book in a doctor’s office, a pharmacy, or a hospital room—I wrote this book for you. <br /><br />A revolution is happening in health care. In the past, nurses, pharmacists, and doctors spoke together at length with families about their concerns and medicines. <br /><br />But now, patients receive only distracted attention as their health professionals tangle with billing, electronic records, and insurance obstacles. This shortened communication frustrates doctors and patients who want to connect. Patients find themselves isolated because they don’t speak the language of medicine. This book teaches you that language with plain English words.<br />
