With so much time spent as an alternative Health practitioner, a book by a patient turned practitioner and a friend is in my opinion a great testimony to the efficacy of traditional or as the author puts it in the book “Food is Gods own prescription for prevention and cure of Diseases” as the way to everlasting health and wealth. A good understanding of the basics of wellness is what the book strives to achieve and that if grasped will ultimately be of immense benefit to both the practitioners and patients as the cost of ill health is prohibitive in terms of finance, energy and time to both the care givers and community. A healthy population is a productive and happy population.
The world is experiencing at the moment and years to come to an influx of data from the available connected devices. As we welcome new gadgets especially connected to the Internet, we release more data into the cloud. Cloud computing is a phenomenon that also revolutionalized our lives. It was once we had to move our data such as pictures, music, etc over some portable disk or USB drives but not anymore. All the digitized mediums have hugely contributed to the large volumes of our private and public stored in the cloud. How do we approach the data related to our health acquired through various Electronic Health Management systems or most popularly, smartphones, smart watches or smart bands? This piece of review document endeavours to study the research that has been conducted by other school of thoughts and review them to understand how health data in the cloud has been approached.
ABSTRACT A research to investigate the prevalence of urinary tract infections in sexually active women (18 – 41 years) from selected health care centres in Abakaliki was carried out. Attempt was made to fined out the number of treated cases, aetiologic agents and age range with highest inc dence o urinary tract infections over the study period (2004 – 2005). Medical records of urinary tract infected women from the selected health care centres were reviewed. The prevalence of urinary tract infections was high (1232) among the study group and Escherichia coli was implicated as the principal causative agent of these infections. The high prevalence recorded in this study makes it necessary for women to be adequately educated on matters affecting their reproductive health. There is also the need for government of the state to provide improved, adequate and affordable health care services in the communities.
