Ketchum, ID (PRWEB) January 31, 2005
Healthsearches, a division of HC Search Corporation, announced the creation of B, a new magazine-style newsletter, and an educational website, http://www.healthsearches.org, to empower women on issues about breast health, breast cancer, and other important women's concerns.
According to Tilden Sokoloff, M.D., Healthsearches' President and co-founder, ÂHealthsearches came alive to educate, engage, and empower women in their own healthcare. Many women have an intuitive sense that there are healthy ways of healing themselves. However, some women who are interested in supplementing their healthcare with complementary medical approaches may be reluctant to ask their mainstream physicians about alternative medicine. To provide a user-friendly, comprehensive source of helpful information on breast health and breast cancer, we developed a newsletter and novel website for optimizing womenÂs wellness.Â
A unique feature of B, The Newsletter on Breast Health & Breast Cancer, and the Healthsearches website, is their focus on both contemporary mainstream and integrative medical approaches to breast health, cancer diagnosis and treatment, and womenÂs wellness. B, an online, color magazine-style newsletter, is designed to provide helpful information, alleviate fear, and empower Âwalking worriedÂ women who want to maintain wellness and prevent cancer. Also, B is of interest to integrative medical physicians. The intriguing articles in B include:
Â Interpretations of new findings on breast health and cancer
Â Commentary on standard, experimental, alternative, and integrative medical approaches to prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment
Â Controversial issues in womenÂs health, such as hormone replacement therapy and alternatives, nutrition, supplements, and botanical medicine
Â Alternative and integrative medical approaches for overall well-being of body, mind, and spirit
Visitors to the website may view the cover article in each issue of B. Subscriptions to B may be ordered online at the Healthsearches website. Subscribers receive B by email and can access all articles of each issue of B online.
Kiril Sokoloff, co-founder of Healthsearches and well-known publisher, said, ÂOur website incorporates an extensive Question and Answer (Q&A) format, which is an effective way for women to understand and learn about improving their optimizing wellness.Â The novel Q&A format of our website makes it easy to find medical information that is presented in an understandable and interesting way. A goal of the Q&A section of the website is to allay the concerns of Âwalking worriedÂ women, breast cancer patients and their families, and survivors.
Users of the Healthsearches website can find information 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&As they desire. The search function allows users to enter key words and phrases to search the Q&A collection of information. The ÂAsk Us A QuestionÂ section allows users to email a question that was not covered in the Q&A library.
Also, the Healthsearches website contains a link to the homepage of the website (http://www.komen.org) of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, an education, advocacy, and support group for patients and survivors, and features the phone number of Komen's National Toll-Free Breast Care Helpline.
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. Holly Abrams, Ph.D., Healthsearches' Scientific Director said, ÂHealthsearches was founded to inform 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 we are developing that will enable people to take charge of their health.Â Future websites will focus on illnesses such as autoimmune diseases and lifestyle approaches such as nutrition.
