Medicinal tourism is a pretty well new term used to detail an awesome amount of people universally that go abroad world-wide for healthfulness care. Why these people travel and for what differs Cheap Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys , but in essence there are two types of medical tourists 鈥?the regular tourist that adds a visit to the medic for some minor treatment, as part of his or her holiday, and the tourist travelling generally for medical treatment.

Before there even was a term ‘medical tourism’, it was common practice among the well-to-do in third-world countries to travel to the USA, Switzerland and Germany for medical care. However, since the year 2000 Cheap Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys , this trend has been reversed and now countries such as Thailand, are attracting patients from the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom.

This new market has grown as modern health care systems all over the world are struggling to meet the medical needs of their own populations. In the United States, the price of health care is beyond the means of most and there are an estimated 40 million people without health insurance. While in Britain, Canada and Holland, socialised health care ensures affordability Cheap St. Louis Blues Jerseys , demand for medical services far outstrips supply and waiting lists for surgical procedures or specialty medicine can be as long as two-to-three years.

Today, governments, insurers and employers are carefully looking at outsourcing medical treatments as a way to improve access and lower health care costs for their citizens, policy-holders and employees.

Thailand’s health care services are about one-half the cost of similar services in Singapore, one-third the cost of Hong Kong and one-tenth the cost in the United States.

Who are the medical tourists and what are they coming for?

By and large, medical tourists are travelling for specialty surgical and medical services. The recent upsurge in the popularity of plastic surgery Cheap San Jose Sharks Jerseys , however, has led to a new wave of medical tourists and headlines like “Sun, sea and surgery” or “Scalpel tourism” have helped create the buzz for this growing phenomenon. Medical tourism destinations, such as Thailand, promote the benefit of high-quality medical care as just one more reason to visit the kingdom.

Elective out-patient procedures like check-ups, dental care Cheap Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys , and LASIK eye surgery are becoming increasingly popular and there is a growing interest on the part of the tourism industry to include these services as part of their travel packages. Higher intensity medical services, like spinal and cardiac surgery, pose a greater challenge because these medical services are not as easily packaged and require significantly more knowledge about medicine.

Bumrungrad Hospital, located in central Bangkok, is a major player in the medical tourism field in Thailand, attracting over 360 Cheap Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys ,000 international patients every year from over 150 countries worldwide. But Bumrungrad is not alone. There are quite a few other hospitals in Thailand and also in out-lying regions that are aggressively marketing their hospitals to capture a slice of this fast growing market. Both Bumrungrad Hospital and the India-based Apollo Hospital were recently featured on the CBS award winning news program “60 Minutes” as medical tourism destinations for a growing number of Americans.

Reliable figures on the size and growth of medical tourism are hard to come by, as government and immigration statistics do not yet categorize inbound travellers coming for medical care. That said, the Tourism Authority of Thailand is actively promoting medical tourism as medical tourists on average spend more and stay longer than leisure travellers.

So, whether you are the casual visitor that will take advantage of some minor medical work while in Thailand, or you are planning your vacation around your surgery, Thailand is the place to go and get it done professionally and at an extremely good price.

When a man discovers manhood bumps on his equipment Cheap Ottawa Senators Jerseys , he often worries about what this might mean in terms of his male organ health, and with good reason. Sometimes bumps can indeed mean a condition exists which needs attending to. But in the case of Fordyce spots, the bumps are benign and don’t really require attention medically.

Nonetheless, some men (and some partners) don’t like the look of Fordyce spots on and around the manhood and may want to do something about them. There are many DIY remedies floating around the internet for removing Fordyce spots – but should a man use them to get rid of these harmless manhood bumps?

What they are

The body has a network of glands known as sebaceous glands. There are many of these in the member, and they provide an important function. They create and transport the body’s natural lubricating oils to the skin, where they help keep the skin moisturized and keep skin from drying out. On the manhood Cheap New York Rangers Jerseys , this helps keep male organ skin from becoming dry, flaky and cracked – a look that no man really wants.

Sometimes, however, the sebaceous glands work harder than they have to. They become overactive. When this happens, they can be seen on the top of the skin as tiny little dots, often white or another color that is somewhat paler than the skin surrounding them. This is all Fordyce spots are - overactive sebaceous glands. They are not dangerous and pose no real danger to a person. And they are very common Cheap New York Islanders Jerseys , with some doctors estimating that some 80% of men have these manhood bumps. (Some people may get them on their lips as well.)

Removal

Nonetheless, some people find them aesthetically unpleasing and wish to have them removed. Since Fordyce spots have been around for thousands of years, many folk “remedies” exist for them.
