Ketchum, ID (PRWEB) January 27, 2005
Healthsearches, a division of HC Search Corporation, announced today the launch of a new, educational website, http://www.healthsearches.org, and newsletter to empower consumers and patients on issues about health and wellness issues including breast health and breast cancer. The novel Question & Answer (Q&A) format of the Healthsearches website makes it easy to find medical information on breast cancer that is presented in an understandable and interesting way.
Another unique feature of both the Healthsearches website and, The Newsletter on Breast Health & Breast Cancer, is their focus on both contemporary mainstream and integrative medical approaches to breast cancer health and treatment.
The Healthsearches website and newsletter encompass the latest information on standard and experimental cancer diagnostics and therapies, controversial issues in womenÂs health, hormone replacement therapy and alternatives, nutrition, supplements, botanical medicine, and alternative approaches to health and well-being.
Due to Healthsearches' editorial and financial independence from outside commercial interests, the organization is able to provide the public with an objective view on a wide range of medical and lifestyle approaches to wellness. According to Holly Abrams, Ph.D., Healthsearches' Scientific Director, "Healthsearches was founded to educate and empower the public about vital health and lifestyle issues. Breast health and breast cancer are the focus of the first of a series of websites and newsletters that Healthsearches is developing that will enable people to take charge of their health."
Featuring a Q&A database that is geared toward allaying the concerns of an audience of men and women (sometimes termed Âwalking worriedÂ), breast cancer patients and their families, and breast cancer survivors, the Healthsearches website on breast health and breast cancer allows users to easily find the information they seek by using any of the following three, simple methods. The Q&A section allows users to scan an index of topic categories (e.g., prevention, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, side effects) for the specific Q&A's they desire. The search function allows users to enter key words and phrases to search the Q&A collection of information. The "Ask Us A Question" section allows users to email a question that was not covered in the Q&A library.
In addition to the Q&A library of information, the Healthsearches website contains a link to the homepage of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation website http://www.komen.org, which serves as an education, advocacy, and support group for cancer patients and survivors, and features the phone number of KomenÂs National Toll-Free Breast Care Helpline.
B, The Newsletter on Breast Health & Breast Cancer, is an online newsletter designed to provide helpful information, alleviate fear, and empower Âwalking worriedÂ women who want to maintain breast health and prevent breast cancer. Also, B is of interest to integrative medical physicians. The intriguing articles include:
Â Interpretations of new findings on breast health and breast cancer
Â Commentary on standard, experimental, alternative, and integrative medical approaches to prevent, screen, diagnose, and treat breast cancer
Â Alternative and integrative medical approaches for overall well-being of body, mind, and spirit
Subscriptions to B may be ordered online at the Healthsearches website.
