This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Handicapped people requires extra special care. That is why NMEDA gives information on road safety and correct consciousness towards travel. In many occasion, NMEDA been help people get that right information. My uncle was a handicapped for about 12 years already. The doctor told him that he has to be stationed in a wheelchair due to a road accident that badly injured his left leg. He was severly injured because of that accident. The bone doctor told him that walking would be a problem for him because of the accident.

We were supposed to acquire a wheelchair using the catalogs in the Internet. But the doctor told us to better get a QAP assurance that the wheelchair is fit for my uncle. The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is like a testing program that certifies that the product that you are acquiring is bestfit for a handicapped person. The assurance that the QAP provides is very good for a product, such as a wheelchair. The biggest advantage in buying in a NMEDA qualified dealer is that they conduct on site evaluation to custom fit vehicles to your specific needs.

Every time we travel, we are assured that my uncle is safe and sound in our car. It would take more years before my uncle can start to walk again. That was his physical therapist told him. With the NMEDA information and QAP assurance, we know that we are buying the right thing for my uncle's special condition.

Heart attack cases right now is rapidly increasing and the age is getting younger. My classmate died because of an heart attack when we where just 17 years old.

Doctors right now are doing their best to solve the problem. New medicines right are being developed to fight heart attack or heart related ailments. But the best way to prevent a heart attack is just to take the daily medicines are prescribed by doctors. Aside from medicine, people with heart problems should avoid staying up late or engaging in activities that can lead to stress.

Sleep early as possible and eat fresh foods, vegetables and fruits are very ideal to avoid heart problems later on. Prevention is better than cure. Be healthy and be smart in taking care of your health.

Garlic's health benefits and medicinal properties have long been known (1). Garlic has long been considered a herbal "wonder drug", with a reputation in folklore for preventing everything from the common cold and flu to the Plague! It has been used extensively in herbal medicine (phytotherapy, sometimes spelt phitotherapy).

Raw garlic is used by some to treat the symptoms of acne and there is some evidence that it can assist in managing high cholesterol levels. It can even be effective as a natural mosquito repellent.

In general, a stronger tasting clove of garlic has more sulphur content and hence more medicinal value it's likely to have. Some people have suggested that organically grown garlic tends towards a higher sulphur level and hence greater benefit to health. In my experience it certainly tastes better so I buy organic whenever possible whether or not it's best for my health.
