Online Natural Health Center Meets Pain Relief Needs of Millions of Arthritis Sufferers Left Reeling from Vioxx Recall

Online Natural Health Center Meets Pain Relief Needs of Millions of Arthritis Sufferers Left Reeling from Vioxx Recall










(PRWEB) October 5, 2004

Natural Health Center, an online natural health products resource and online store has announced its preparedness to assist arthritis sufferers who had been taking Vioxx for arthritis pain prior to the drug’s recall on September 30th.

In response to Merck’s recall, Natural Health Center (NHC) has put together a variety of arthritis pain relief packages for those who now find themselves without a safe means to relieve arthritis pain.

“What many people don’t realize is that popular prescription drugs only manage symptoms, they don’t actually address the underlying cause of the disease,” said Dr. Dan Nuzum, Naturopathic doctor at NHC.

“So what you get is simply pain management, without improvement of the condition itself. But with natural treatments like herbal supplements and homeopathic remedies, both the root cause of the disease is addressed as well as the pain and discomfort it causes – and its all done safely and naturally.

One of the main causes for arthritis is a parasite called Protozoa. Arthritis is also caused by a virus. Once the body is rid of the offending parasite or virus, the natural healing process can begin.

Millions of people suffering from arthritis worldwide are today scrambling for an alternative to Vioxx and other arthritis prescription medications. Natural Health Center provides an effective solution by offering a safe, proven method to treat the painful disease.

Natural Health Center (NHC) has arthritis relief packages available to those who are looking for a new, safe form of relief. We offer the highest quality herbal and natural products available. To learn more about how we can help relieve your arthritis pain, stop by:

Emergency Grants and Mental Health First Aid Training Available to Meet Mental Health Needs after Haiti Earthquake

Emergency Grants and Mental Health First Aid Training Available to Meet Mental Health Needs after Haiti Earthquake











Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 19, 2010

The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare (National Council) is offering small emergency grants and free Mental Health First Aid training to support mental health efforts in the wake of the devastating Haiti earthquake.

“Our thoughts are with the people of Haiti and with their loved ones in the U.S. We commend the efforts of many agencies and individuals that are providing disaster relief. Our pockets are not deep but we are standing by to help in any way we can,” Linda Rosenberg, president and CEO of the National Council said.

Through its Project Helping Hands, the National Council offers small grants to organizations working to meet the mental health needs of Haitian survivors and loved ones in the U.S. Since 2005, Project Helping Hands has supported behavioral healthcare organizations responding to emergency mental health and addictions treatment needs in the wake of disaster — hiring treatment staff, setting up emergency outreach offices, and purchasing medications and emergency equipment.

It is estimated that up to 25 to 30 percent of people in the most vulnerable communities experience the onset of trauma and mental disorders in the wake of disaster. These needs usually manifest several weeks to months after a disaster, as the reality of loss and displacement sinks in. Those with pre-existing serious mental illnesses may be traumatized anew or displaced and need extra care and support.

Haitian populations in the U.S., concerned about the safety and whereabouts of any loved ones in Haiti, may also be experiencing acute anxiety and stress reactions. Further, it is likely that the U.S. will see a significant influx of surviving Haitians over the coming months and a good number will likely experience mental health issues, in addition to the challenges of settling into a new culture.

Free Mental Health First Aid USA (http://www.MentalHealthFirstAid.org) training is available for volunteers headed to help in Haiti in the coming months and for community groups and caring citizens working with Haitian populations in the U.S.

Mental Health First Aid USA — a collaboration of the National Council, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Missouri Department of Mental Health — equips members of the public with skills and resources to help someone developing a mental health problem or save someone experiencing a mental health crisis. Those trained in Mental Health First Aid can recognize the risk factors and warning signs of mental illness and connect persons in need with appropriate professional or other help, including peer and family support.

Those who wish to support the Haiti disaster mental health response may donate to the National Council’s Project Helping Hands at http://www.thenationalcouncil.org/cs/project_helping_hands.

The National Council is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) association of 1,700 behavioral healthcare organizations that provide treatment and rehabilitation for mental illnesses and addictions disorders to nearly six million adults, children and families in communities across the country.
