I would have a vacation after vacation

Complaints about post-holiday stress are a common reason for seeking medical attention today. 

Meanwhile, experts note: a decadent mood after rest is a frequent and natural phenomenon. The person returns to the usual rhythm of life and ... begins to experience stress, as well as unwillingness to go to work.

It is as active a hobby as football or hockey for avid fans and amateurs.

Memo for Citizens: Free Medicines or Cash Compensation?

The Health Department of the Vladimir Region has prepared a memo for citizens making a choice: free medicines or monetary compensation.The provision of state social assistance, including the receipt of drugs on preferential terms, is guaranteed by the state. It is extremely important to make the right choice of the form of such assistance.At a time when a person's well-being does not cause much concern, chronic diseases do not aggravate and do not progress, it is easy for him to succumb to the temptation to replace natural benefits with a monthly cash payment (MAP). As soon as the condition worsens and the disease becomes protracted, monetary compensation is clearly not enough. Such a burden for the family budget can be overwhelming. This is especially true for patients suffering from diseases such as diabetes mellitus, bronchial asthma, epilepsy, ulcerative forms of gastrointestinal diseases, oncological diseases and others. The average cost of treating patients with such diseases is from 5 thousand rubles and reaches more than 300 thousand rubles per month.

Be carefull! Heat (sun) stroke.

Spending a lot of time outdoors in the hot season, a person is constantly at risk of heat or sunstroke, which are very often interrelated. Heatstroke itself is a painful condition resulting from prolonged exposure to high temperatures on the body. Simply put, it is overheating of the body. Naturally, it can be obtained by being under direct exposure to sunlight for a long time, but heatstroke occurs even easier than solar heat - it is enough to spend several hours in a stuffy room or work for a while in too tight clothes, while for solar requires almost spa conditions. What is the mechanism of the harmful effects of heatstroke on the body? For its normal functioning, the temperature of the human body should not be higher than 37 degrees, and as a result of overheating in the body, the processes of heat generation intensify and at the same time the processes of heat transfer slow down. As a result, all vital functions are seriously impaired, up to cardiac arrest in especially difficult cases.
