Need A Doctor In A Hurry? No Worries, There’s An App For That!


(PCM) Smartphone and tablet users are now able to take advantage of a new app called Doctor On Demand, which they can use to access a doctor who can then diagnose their symptoms and prescribe any needed medications all directly from the phone/tablet app.

The cost of the service runs $40 a month, but is an ideal solution for those individuals who don’t have the time to go to the doctors office or happen to be in need of a doctor when they are traveling far away from home.

The app is available to users in 47 states and the app boasts a pool of over 1,400 board certified doctors that are available on-call to the app. The app itself feature real-time video that connects the patient and the available doctor.

It has been stressed by Doctor On Demand that the app should not replace primary care physician visits or be used for any urgent emergencies or hard to diagnose illnesses. It should only be used to treat minor illnesses such as respiratory infections, fevers, allergies or minor infections

Currently, the Doctor On Demand app service is not linked to any health insurance plan so all cost associated with the service are the full responsibility of the patient. The use of smartphone and tablet technology to connect doctors with patients is becoming increasingly popular, as it is very convenient and is a true time and cost saver for both doctors and patients.

Bikini Pic Of Former Model With Colostomy Bags Has Gone Viral


(PCM) British make-up artist and former model Bethany Townsend is making headlines after she posted an image of herself in a bikini laying out with her colostomy bags in full view.

Townsend has been suffering from Crohn’s Disease since the age of three, but was not officially diagnosed until the age of 11. Because of her misdiagnosis, she was forced to have 16 inches of her bowl removed at a young age and has been on steroids, infliximab, methotrexate and every other drug going as well as being tube fed for 4 years.

After five additional surgeries, Townsends’ bowl burst four years ago and she ended up with two colostomy bags. After that incident Townsend gave up her modeling dreams.

Back in December, Townsend was vacationing in Mexico with her husband and he was always telling her that she had a great body and wanted her to wear a bikini. Finally, Townsend agreed and figured that it didn’t matter because she would most likely never see any of those people again anyway.

Townsend eventually decided to share the vacation bikini picture with the Crohn’s and Colitis UK Facebook page and it almost immediately went viral.

Townsend claims that “I felt like I finally had the confidence after three-and-a-half years of having them that I wanted to give other girls the confidence, the guys the confidence, to be like, ‘we have nothing to be ashamed of.”

We certainly think that Townsend’s act of sharing was both incredibly brave and definitely inspiring!  What do you think?

Sponsored Post: Have A Delightful Day With International Delights Iced Coffee

While I don’t want to brag, I have to say that I consider myself to be a coffee aficionado of sorts and while I adore coffee at anytime of year, I especially enjoy trying all of the new iced coffee drinks when summertime rolls around.

However, what I don’t enjoy is going out to the local coffeehouse and having to wait in exceptionally long lines, as frantic baristas scramble around yelling out names and throw drinks together to move customers in and out more quickly. And then of course there is always that one person (who happens to always be in line in front of me) who has the most complicated and drawn out coffee order on the planet!  Where is the relaxation in that?

Also, don’t even get me started about the cost! I can hardly believe how expensive it can be to order a specialty drink, hot or cold, at many of the popular coffeehouse chains nowadays. It truly makes you wonder if all the hassle for that cup of delicious joe is really worth it, but that leads me to one of the newest discoveries.

I have found a way to enjoy that delicious coffeehouse flavor straight from my own refrigerator in the comfort of my own home. International Delight Iced Coffee provides all the taste and flavor of your favorite coffeehouse favorites without all the hassle that can go along with visiting one of these coffeehouse chains.

Grab a cup and some ice and you are good to go!  International Delight Iced Coffee is ready to drink right from the carton and will definitely leave you with more time to take a few moments, enjoy some coffee and of course relax!
