Nurse Shammy

Nurse Shammy is an African native who had dreams of becoming a nurse in the United States. One day, a friend of hers suggested that Shammy check out the weekly NCLEX High Yield zoom meeting. The problem was that the weekly Zoom meeting took place every week at 2 in the morning Kenyan time. This wouldn’t stop Shammy though. She woke up every week and was alert and attentive during each meeting, making sure she was absorbing all of the information Dr. Zeeshan shared with her and the others in the weekly meetings. When Nurse Shammy was prepared, she got on an airplane for the first time ever and flew down to South Africa to take the exam. When she passed, Shammy became the first RN in her family, and she didn’t spend a dime. Even when you’re on the other side of the planet, you can make your dreams come true and NCLEX High Yield is here to help you do that. You can check out her story here.

Nurse Rita

Nurse Rita is 68 years old and began her journey to becoming a nurse over 30 years ago when she became a BSN in 1991. Since then, Rita has attempted to pass the NCLEX 21 times. While most people would give up at this point, Rita refused to give up. Rita worked two jobs and didn’t have much money to spend on things that weren’t essential. One day she went out and applied for a credit card and was approved with a limit of $500. She used that money to take an NCLEX High Yield test. After trying to pass the NCLEX for years, she decided to give Dr. Zeeshan’s courses a chance after discovering his videos on Facebook and Youtube. Discovering NCLEX High Yield changed the course of Rita’s life. Dr. Zeeshan broke down concepts in a way that made more sense to her than any other class she’s taken since leaving school 30 years ago. Once Rita was prepared, she booked her exam and finally passed on her 22nd attempt. Even when life got her down, Nurse Rita refused to give up and after 2 and a half months of taking an NCLEX High Yield course, she finally achieved her lifelong dream of becoming an RN.

Simple Tips to Prevent Midlife Weight Gain

Many American’s struggle with weight gain, particularly during their middle-aged years. This can be due to natural changes in the body, more dormant lifestyles, a natural increase in stress as we take on more and more responsibility, and many other factors. But how do people counter gaining weight as they get older? Here are some tips and tricks for naturally keeping a trim figure as you age and avoiding unnecessary weight gain.

Protein, Protein, Protein

One tried and true method to help keep pounds off is by naturally curbing your appetite by increasing the amount of protein in your diet. Protein is an essential macronutrient and is known to keep us feeling more full for longer periods of time. Because of this, you naturally desire to eat less often, putting your daily calories consumed at a lower number. When you burn more calories than you consume in a day, you will naturally lose weight. Adding protein into your diet is an easy way to keep yourself healthy and extra pounds off of your body. You can read more about protein and midlife weight loss here.

Make Sure to Hydrate

One thing that is very commonly overlooked is hydration. Making sure to get enough water during the day can help you to feel full and also helps with almost all of the body’s processes, such as digestion. Talk to your doctor about the appropriate amount of water that you should be drinking per day. Drinking enough water per day has an immeasurable amount of benefits, and will have you looking and feeling your best while at the same time fighting midlife weight gain.

Add in Some Extra Steps

As we age, we tend to be less and less active in our everyday lives. This can lead to overall sedentary lifestyles, which leads to fewer calories burnt throughout the day. Over time, if you continue to eat the same amount of calories as always, while also decreasing the amount of movement that you are doing, you will naturally gain weight. By adding in simple exercises like a light walk or a quick jog before or after work, you can increase your steps and in turn, increase the number of calories that you are burning.

All around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a tremendous need for nurses and the NCLEX exam remains one of the most challenging exams for graduates to pass despite having years of schooling, training, and hands-on experience under their belts.- ADVERTISEMENT –

“Dr. Zeeshan teaches these students more than they learned in nursing school, prepares them for the boards and the floor,” said Nurse Claudia Downs, former student and now Director of Nursing Education at NCLEX High Yield. “I work one on one with many of our students and 95% of our students say they learn more with our program than they did throughout their formal Nursing Education.”

Dr. Zeeshan sees it as his duty to do everything he can and leverage his experiences and failures to create innovative programs that highlight the skills and abilities of current and future nurses.

“For me, I left the opportunity to do Residency when I realized what a larger impact in this world I could have by providing education to future nurses,” Dr. Zeeshan said. “My work is so much more to me than just a job – it truly is my life’s passion; the feeling of helping a Nurse become licensed never gets old!”

Reinvesting back into the program, Dr. Zeeshan has hired nine former students to lead the program for the next generation of nurses. The company prides itself on promoting female leadership and diversity, with staff members who identify as Trinidadian, African American, South Asian, Caucasian, and Hispanic.

When asked about why she loves working at NCLEX High Yield, Nurse Ayanna, Director of Student Development stated, “Honestly, being able to relate to students and letting them know they are not alone. I once walked in their shoes and it’s the full circle moments that life has for you. Watching them bring out the best in themselves without even realizing they are doing it.”

Currently, students have the option of enrolling in courses for free by being part-time interns. Samiyah Hoodbhoy PA-C, Dr. Zeeshan’s younger sister, heads the scholarship program to make getting licensed affordable for those who are struggling financially. Each course has a committee that decides on one beneficiary of the scholarship each month and in return, the recipient must do three acts of kindness to pay it forward.

NCLEX High Yield is one of the hottest and fastest-growing Nursing Education companies that provides an extremely comprehensive service for the NCLEX exam. They are described by students as “a breath of fresh air.” In a stagnant industry, Dr. Zeeshan is starting to make his name known and shaking things up with an entirely new nursing culture.

Pain’s Role in Curbing Opioid Addiction

Originally published on DrZeeshanHoodbhoy.com

Opioid addiction has become an increasingly serious issue in our country. The Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018 recognizes addiction as a health problem more than a legal problem. Both the Senate and President Trump’s appointed commission agree that we should focus on treatment rather than punishment.

One question we should all be asking is, “What is the root cause of our current crisis?” It has been found that pain plays a huge role. Understanding how pain and opioid addiction are connected is the first step to finding effective treatments.

Primary Prevention

Much of the Senate bill calls for “secondary prevention,” such as prescription monitoring programs, illegal drug seizure protocol, improving drug disposal systems and training healthcare professionals in proper prescribing practices.

Primary prevention is mentioned a few times in the bill, but it is not covered extensively. What it does mention is school and media programs that will inform children and parents about the dangers of opioid use. However, this plan only scratches the surface of what needs to be done.

These are all great steps, but what is arguably more important is addressing reasons people turn to opioids in the first place.

Why Start Taking Opioids?

Most people begin taking opioids because of mental or physical pain. Former abuse and improperly treated ailments are two common culprits. If your employers, family members and healthcare providers aren’t helping you with the pain you’re feeling, you might think that opioids are the only way to feel better.

Facing America’s pain epidemic is crucial to curbing the painkiller epidemic. The Senate bill addresses how the National Institutes of Health will make efforts to improve the scientific understanding of prevention, treatment and management of pain. This is a step in the right direction.

Other Considerations

Opioid addiction has affected some communities more than others. It is a widespread problem, but data on the opioid epidemic indicates that the addiction especially impacts males in working class and low-income communities. It is also rapidly expanding to Hispanic communities.

Addressing low social capital, social isolation and weak community ties and economic issues could help solve the root cause of opioid addiction.

Helping people manage their pain without opioids could curb the addiction epidemic in our country. We have a long road ahead of us, but recent research and policies have put us on the right path.

Dangerous Medication Mistakes to Know

Originally published on DrZeeshanHoodbhoy.com

Medication is used for a variety of different purposes, whether to improve ailments or offer pain relief. Unfortunately, many mistakes can be made with taking medications, which can lead to adverse and potentially dangerous effects. If you want to protect yourself and use your medication safely, there are a few common mistakes to avoid making.

Picking Up the Wrong Prescription

In some cases, patients may pick up the wrong prescription and take medication that they may not need. To avoid this mistake, ask your doctor to write down the name of the prescription during your appointment to ensure that it matches the medication you are picking up at the pharmacy. You also want to read the name on the bottle to confirm that the details are accurate.

It’s important to avoid visiting multiple pharmacies when you’re taking different prescription drugs because the pharmacists won’t be able to determine if everything can be mixed. Visit one pharmacy for all of your medication to protect your health and have the aid of a pharmacist who can look out for your safety.

Mixing Medications

Many people make the mistake of mixing their prescription drugs, which can interact adversely by increasing the sedative effect of one another. Avoid mixing painkillers and different supplements, even if some of the medications are over-the-counter. Antibiotics are also known to reduce the effectiveness of oral contraceptives.

Consuming Alcohol While Taking Drugs

Consuming alcohol while taking medications is not recommended by health experts because it can create an additive effect. You’ll find yourself falling asleep at the wheel or having a lack of energy, which can be dangerous when performing different types of activities. Alcohol and painkillers should also not be paired together, as it can lead to liver damage over time.

Failing to Ask Questions

Many people fail to get enough of their questions answered when their doctor decides to prescribe the medication. Not knowing when to take the medication, how frequent, or the dosage can all lead to complications if you fail to get clear directions from a medical professional. You can consider asking the pharmacist for help if you’re unsure of the instructions to protect yourself. The doctor may also say that a family member needs to assist with the dosage for certain individuals.

Tuberculosis: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment

Many people mistakenly believe tuberculosis (TB) is a thing of the distant past. Believe it or not, 1.7 million people have a latent form of TB right now, and many of them don’t even know they have it. In this article, we’ll go over what TB is, the symptoms you need to look out for, and standard treatment procedures.

What Is TB?

TB gets its name from the bacterial strain Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Most often this bacteria works its way into a TBpatient’s lungs, but it could also get into other vital organs like the kidneys and brain. This disease mainly spreads from active patients to other people via airborne bacteria.

There are two major types of tuberculosis: active and latent. People with latent TB don’t have symptoms and can’t spread the disease to others. Active TB, on the other hand, is contagious and life threatening if not addressed quickly. It’s important to note, however, that latent TB can change over to active TB at any moment. This is why people who believe they’ve been exposed to TB must get an appropriate scan at their doctor’s office even if they don’t have obvious symptoms.

Frequent Symptoms Of TB

Since the most common kind of active TB infects the lungs, patients tend to report symptoms like an intense, long-lasting cough, chest pains, and coughing up phlegm or, in more severe cases, blood. Other general symptoms of TB include a lack of energy, decreased appetite, and sudden weight loss. If you or a loved one experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to see a doctor right away.

Standard And Alternative Care For TB

Thankfully, tuberculosis is treatable and there are many treatment strategies you can use to overcome this serious disease. The most common treatment is a round of antibiotics that usually lasts a few months. Depending on the severity of your TB, you might also have to get special antibiotic injections to overcome it.

Of course, taking antibiotics over such a long time could wreak havoc on your gut flora. That’s why most doctors today recommend taking a high-quality probiotic supplement alongside your antibiotics. It’s also extremely important to cut out foods and drinks that aggravate TB. This means eliminating smoking and alcohol from your life, as well as limiting your coffee and sugar intake.

If you’re interested in the more alternative care route, some naturopaths have helped TB patients using colloidal silver, oil of oregano, and/or acupuncture.
