Accreditations of Avalon University School of Medicine

Avalon University School of Medicine is a U.S. based medical program and our graduates are geared for a career in medicine in the United States. Avalon University School of Medicine has taken all necessary steps to ensure that its graduates are eligible for U.S. medical licensure. For a Medical University to be approved, it must be chartered. Avalon University School of Medicine is chartered by the Ministry of Education in Curacao. This charter entitles Avalon University School of Medicine to grant a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree to students who have successfully completed the medical school’s approved curriculum in medical education, which includes an emphasis on USMLE preparation.

Avalon University School of Medicine is also recognized by the United States Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). The ECFMG is an organization that promotes excellence in medical education throughout the world. Requirements for graduate certification in the U.S. are outlined by the ECFMG and followed by students graduating from any international medical school. This endorsement means our program is structured so graduates of AUSOM are eligible to take all phases of the USMLE and subsequently apply to U.S. residency programs.

Eligibility for U.S. residency programs recognized by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requires Caribbean Medical School students to obtain a certificate from the ECFMG. Certificate eligibility depends on whether a school is listed in the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research’s (FAIMER) International Medical Education Directory (IMED). Avalon University School of Medicine is currently listed in this publication. Medical schools are listed in FAIMER’s IMED when they receive recognition by the appropriate local agency within their country, for example, a Ministry of Education. Additionally, to be eligible for the USMLE, a student must attend a medical school listed in the IMED.

Avalon University is also recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and can be found in their most recent World Directory of Medical Schools. The WHO is an agency of the United Nations that serves to help coordinate and monitor international medical education programs. The WHO recognizes a medical school if it is deemed an appropriate education or training institution for healthcare workers.

Additionally, the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) considers AUSOM a recognized medical school. This recognition permits AUSOM’s graduates to pursue Canadian residency positions and Canadian medical licensure. This includes taking the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE), which is the Canadian equivalent of the USMLE.

At Avalon University School of Medicine, our goal is to ensure that students and graduates of the medical school program are prepared and successful in all aspects of their medical career endeavors. The faculty at Avalon University provides a unique and modern medical education experience; while continually focusing on the preparation for the USMLE.

Lyme Disease & Biofeedback

Lyme Disease is the silent epidemic of the 21st century. Like AIDS in the early 80’s when our understanding of HIV was in it’s infancy, Lyme Disease is missed, ignored, feared and lacks a coherent protocol by the CDC. Today, most physicians accept that Lyme Disease is caused by a deer tick and is prevalent in specific geographical areas of the country. If a person doesn’t fit the specific criteria of the typical bulls-eye rash or live in the accepted areas of infection it’s not always considered as the potential cause behind many chronic illness and symptoms. If a physician does test for Lyme Disease the possibilities of being told you don’t have Lyme are very high unless the non CDC protocol for test analysis is followed. The Western Blot test has the highest accuracy for determining if Lyme related pathogens are active. In all fairness to the medical community and the CDC, Lyme Disease is very difficult to detect. The responsible spirochete bacteria are so small they are not easily found with standard testing.

Quantum Biofeedback is a technologically advanced human interface computer program and device developed out of traditional biofeedback that has had success in assessing for Lyme Disease. It can deliver highly focused, specific therapy to reduce multiple kinds of stress, such as pathogens like the Lyme Disease spirochete. It can detect the pathogen utilizing frequency therapies that have the frequency “codes” of the various Lyme Disease pathogens. A trained Biofeedback Specialist can then analyze the feedback data to help determine if the resonance with a particular issue or pathogen like the Lyme Disease related spirochetes are resonating for an individual. Besides providing specific stress reduction related to the Lyme Disease symptoms, it can also assist a person in determining if it would be prudent to have a Lyme test done. While the analysis is not considered a diagnosis, the resonance patterns can provide a person with enough information to pursue a diagnosis with a physician.

The Quantum Biofeedback uses a highly sophisticated device called the EPFX/SCIO to read the body’s physiological reaction at the subconscious level to the frequencies of over 10000 different items. The client is “linked” to the EPFX/SCIO by way of a safe, comfortable headband and a chair pad that rests where the client is seated for the duration of the session. Because the EPFX/SCIO is communicating with the subconscious mind, the effect of the therapy can be very deep and incredibly powerful in assisting a person to cope better with daily stressors as well as the specific issues and stresses related to any type of chronic illness like Lyme Disease.

If you have Lyme Disease, regardless of the level of the disease you may have, you will need medical attention and anti-biotic therapy. However, natural therapies and related alternative medicine today offer more solutions to assist in reducing not only the long term effects of such an insidious infection but in paving the way to long term recovery.

Guava As Medicine

Guava (Psidium guajava) is a delecious fruit with medical efficacy. Commercially, world production of guava fruit is estimated at about 500,000 metric tons, with Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela producing significant quantities. Processed guava products include beverages, cheese, ice cream, jams, jellies, juice, syrup, toffee, wine, and dehydrated and canned products.

Guava is known to have antiamebic, antibiotic, antidiarrheic, antihyperglycemic, antimutagenic, antispasmodic, and sedative effects, as well as anticough and narcotic-like activities of the plant species.

Medicine for diarrhea:

Guava leaves have antidiarrheic property. Quercetin present in guava affects smooth muscle fibers as a calcium antagonist, inhibits intestinal movement, and reduces capillary permeability in the abdominal cavity.

Take a handful of fresh guava leaves and rinse them in clean water. Chop the leaves. Boil them in about two cups of water with a pinch of salt, strain and cool. You can keep the leaves in the water for hours ahead of drinking. The medicine is stronger if the leaves are allowed to soak into the tea for several hours. Drink half a cup every three hours as needed for diarrhea. This will slow the diarrhea down and give you more energy.

Medicine for constipation:
Ripe guava can be eaten when you are constipated to help you have a bowel movement.

Medicine for toothache:
When you have a toothache or painful gums, you can place washed leaves in your mouth on the sore spot. Chew the leaf a little bit to release the medicine into the painful tooth or gum.

Medicine for Cataracts:
Quercetin which is an antioxidant that blocks enzymes that are responsible for building sorbitol, the sugar that forms the cloudy white clusters that cause cataracts.

Other Medicinal uses:
Guava leaves decoction is recognized for its effectiveness to cure several ailments, including the treatment of uterine hemorrhage, swollenness of the legs and other parts of the body, of chronic diarrhea, and gastroenteritis, among others. The most common use of the leaves is for cleaning and disinfecting wounds by rinsing the afflicted area with a decoction of the leaves. In the same way, such leaves are being used to aid in the treatment of dysentery and the inflammation of the kidneys. The bark and leaves can be used as astringent. It can also be used as a wash for uterine and vaginal problems, and is good for ulcers.

Glossary of article
Antiamebic (kills amoeba), Antibiotic (kills bacteria and other microbes), Antidiarrheic (cures diarrhea), Antihyperglycemic (cures high blood sugar), Antimutagenic (reduces the frequency of mutation), Antospasmodic (cures muscles spasms), Sedative (reduces irritability or excitement)

Organic Food Benefits – Cancer Risk Reduction

Organic food benefits our lives in many ways, but I want to address a singular health issue today. In the US cancer rates have risen over the last decade. Many of the pesticides used in typical farming procedures are listed by the EPA as either possible or probable cancer causes. The insanity has to stop. Each and every one of us is responsible for our own health, and we need to start thinking more clearly about how our diets impact our health.

One way to reduce your risks of cancer is to increase the antioxidants in your diet. This isn’t new information, it has become a well established fact, supported by many studies done by the National Cancer Institute. These studies have shown that antioxidants slow, and in some cases may prevent the development of cancer. Higher antioxidant loads is just one of the organic food benefits.

Organic food benefits us again though, environmentally. Organic farms do not use the chemicals, and hormones found on feed lot farms to enhance the growth of the animals. These chemicals can be excreted by the animals and find their way into water supplies. While the effects of these chemicals on humans is largely unstudied, or understudied, they may be a factor in many of the health problems we experience. Again, organically grown livestock, vegetables and fruits are not treated with these chemicals so there is never a worry about the chemicals used becoming a health risk.

We see that organic food benefits us with reduced cancer risks; through higher antioxidant levels, and environmental risk factor reduction. I encourage you to do more research on your own. The National Cancer Institute and the President’s Cancer Panel have much more detailed reports that can help. For myself, I find I feel better when I eat more organic foods than when I eat foods produced normally. I’m aware that’s merely anecdotal, but perhaps you should try for yourself and see if you feel better as well. The worst that will happen is you eat a few more vegetables for a few days while deciding.

The Holistic Health Care Brings Catalyses The Wellness Of Body

The holistic health care focuses on the overall improvement of the condition of the body. Holistic health care is not restricted to only one kind of disease. Instead, it considers the overall condition of the body and then works for its improvement. The very foundation of holistic health care is different form the conventional medicinal forms. The holistic health care, works by bringing out the hidden spirits of spirituality within the body and then connecting it to nature. The kind of treatment that the holistic health care works on is based on more of healing the disease with the mental strength than the physical strength. The power of this mental strength is then incremented by the very special and unique plants that heal the body. The overall structure of the body is improved by the endless energy within human mind.

The holistic health care is very deeply associated to the concept of wellness. The basic coverage of this concept includes stress management. The healing of the diseases and overall deployment of these techniques are based on how happy does the body feel. The holistic health care ways are very unique and a novel concept. The overall happiness that the body feels drives the positive vibes into the body. This positive energy is the very requisite for improvement of the bad condition of human body. The mind should be satisfied for the therapy to work properly.

The newer concept deals with the integrated forms of the medicinal cure. It includes a blend of the pharmaceutical medicines and the holistic health care ways. A happy brain with lots of positive energy flowing into the veins will definitely cure the diseases that hit the proper working of the body. Medicines have come up today, with the best combinations to heal the body. However, it is a very well known fact that the effect of these medicines becomes multiplied and far faster if combined with the holistic health care. These ways make the body ready to take up the fast changes for the overall improvement of the body. The integrated form of treatment combines the drugs which suffice the requirements of the body and the holistic health care which brings out the effect of these drugs in the body with ease and pace. The final result is very much influenced by the holistic health care, and hence it must not be treated as a secondary mode of healing.

Disability Tax Credit For De Vivo Disease

In people with De Vivo disease their brains do not receive the right amount of the molecule called GLUT1 or Glucose transporter type 1. The GLUT1 ensures that the human brain gets the right and enough amount of glucose needed for its function. The lack of this molecule leads to insufficient amount of glucose in the blood, which in turn will not be able to transport the adequate amount of glucose to the brain. This will then lead to a blood brain barrier resulting in mental retardation and neurological problems.

Cause of De Vivo disease
The cause of this disease is the onset of blood barrier in the body. The glucose in the blood is being barricaded from getting into the brain and if the brain is not able to receive the glucose, there will be no glucose molecules to be transported in the body. This will then result in De Vivo disease.

Some of the symptoms of De Vivo disease are
Delayed development
Small head
Seizures
Low glucose level particularly in cerebrospinal fluid
Ataxia

Complications of the disease
The most common complication is post spinal headache, which often leads to nausea. It is also characterized by delayed development or intellectual disability wherein the person has slow developments. Speech difficulties are to be expected as well. The disease is very rare and only 1 out of 10 people acquire the disease. That is why there are not too many resources about the disease and it is not widely talked about.

Disability tax benefit
De Vivo disease is really hard and a person who suffers from this needs to undergo therapy and ketogenic diet which can help with the seizures and ease the other symptoms as well. It is very obvious that a person who has this disease will not be able to study or work. However, there is a solution to that problem. You will be able to get a disability tax credit with the help of Canadian Disability Corporation (CDC). To benefit from the disability tax credit all you have to do is pass some requirements and your application will be evaluated by the professionals. The CDC is known for their fast compliance to those who wish to apply for the tax credits in order to get the benefits that will really help them a lot financially.

Skin cancer treatment without surgery with BEC5 Curaderm

Skin cancer that is non-melanoma can be easily and more importantly effectively be treated with BEC5 which is also branded as Curaderm. BEC5 Curaderm cream is particularly powerful when spread over Basal cell carcinomas. Consisting of a specially purified plant extract means BEC5 Curaderm is successful on Basal cell carcinomas ( BCC ) or Squamous cell carcinomas ( SCC ) which are the most widespread forms of skin cancer. Curaderm cream applications are also effective on benign tumours such as age spots, Keratoses, sun spots and Keratocanthmoas.

Taken from Solanum Sodomaeum this is a plant that is discovered in Australasia. This plant includes an important extract – Solasodine Glycosides. This is an active ingredient that is also discovered in smaller quantities in the eggplant and aubergine salosodine Glycosides and has been established as being very effective for treating cancerous skin conditions. As a result it is incorporated into BEC5 curaderm cream. BEC5 curaderm cream is a renowned sun spot cream, age spot cream that treats skin cancer at the source. Regressing non-melanoma skin cancers It is calculated that more than 80,000 people have applied BEC5 cream, with numbers continuing to grow as a lot more people are trying non-invasive treatment. Clinical trials carried out in Great Britain and Australia have investigated and established BEC5’s power to treat and regress skin cancer that is non- melanoma. One particular study showed how 72 patients being treated with curaderm BEC5 cream ended in the regression of all treated lesions that included 29 SCCs, 39 BCCs and 56 actinic keratoses. Within 1 to 13 weeks of treatment they were healed 100%. Recently 10 UK hospitals discovered how using BEC5 cream twice a day was able to offer total remission to 78% of the patients in as little as 8 weeks. The remainder 22% of patients had improved but required a slightly prolonged treatment time of 13 weeks. This was all made easy without radiotherapy, surgery or chemotherapy.

Royal London Hospital dermatologists have cited the efficacy of BEC5 curaderm cream as being -safe and effective’ skin cancer treatment along with being a perfect therapy for outpatient treatment. This is thanks to BEC5 being affordable and versatile. Approximately 95% of skin cancer are not the Melanoma type and eliminate the need for invasive and expensive operations. For both secondary and primary skin cancer this is proving a highly practical treatment.

Ovarian Cancer Treatment And Surgery In India Is It A Need

Any cancerous growth arising from the ovary is termed as Ovarian Cancer. Most of the ovarian cancers are surface level of the ovary, rising from the skin. Another source is the fallopian tube, which since it is connected to the ovary has similar effects as ovarian cancer. Egg cells and supporting cells also cause gynaecological cancer. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are bloating, pelvic pain, frequent urination, etc. In India, during 2001-06, incidence rates for ovarian cancer varied from 0.9 to 8.4 per 100,000 person years. The highest incidence was noted in Pune and Delhi areas. With such increasing rates, Medical Tourism India is trying to go to all means to come up with easier, safer and most economical methods of treatments for ovarian cancer.
The exact cause of ovarian cancer is still unknown. There can be hereditary causes as well as physiological and biological causes. Women with endometriosis and post menopausal estrogen replacement therapy are at a higher risk than others. The more number of times a woman gives birth, the lesser is the risk for ovarian cancer. Another study shows that the women who use more of oral contraceptives have lesser risk of developing ovarian cancer. The most obvious way of preventing ovarian cancer is the removal of the ovaries via surgery. Ovarian Cancer Treatment and Surgery in India has been improving throughout the years and has reached a remarkable stage where India is looked upon as the first choice for medical treatment by foreign nationals. India provides high quality medical treatments at economical rates and this attracts many countries. Millions of people come buzzing to India to avail the low cost and high quality services. The rising hospitals and the multi-faceted doctors are the reason all this has been possible.
It is very easy to detect ovarian cancer. A physical examination and a blood test is enough to diagnose it. An inspection of the abdominal cavity along with biopsies can confirm the diagnosis. Ovarian cancer is a little hard to diagnose at the earlier stages. Ovarian Cancer Treatment and Surgery in India has advanced to such a level that it has been classified into many categories according to the tumours associated. Ovarian epithelial carcinoma is the most common type and is a surface tumour. Germ cell tumours are generally benign and tend to occur in young women and girls. Sex cord-stromal tumours are generally malignant and occur mostly in post menopausal women.
