Tech Crunch – by: 

Health tech startup Cardiogram has raised $2 million in a seed round led by the a16z Bio Fund for an app that screens users’ cardio health and gives them help improving or maintaining it.

The company started out with an Apple Watch integrated app, initially. But it is ultimately planning to be a “device agnostic” business, and to make its app utilizable with all manner of wearables such as Android Wear watches, or various fitness bands and activity trackers from the likes of Fitbit or Garmin.

Ask Dr. Ezeugwu – Faith – #YourHealth

Expect Quality, that’s what we stand for!!

ASK DOCTOR EZEUGWU | July 21, 2016

DEAR DOCTOR EZEUGWU: Can my Faith affect my healing from sickness and disease?

DEAR PATIENT: Absolutely, Yes!! ….How? You may ask; Because your Faith is dependent on your thoughts and beliefs!

How you think about your illness impacts your healing process.  When your thoughts are predominantly negative, your healing process is hampered.  For an instance, even when your doctor has prescribed the right medicine for your illness, you will very likely not take the medicine, especially, if you have no faith in the doctor or the medicine. You may develop some unusual fear about taking the medication. You may even begin to avoid seeing the doctor altogether.  In fact, treating a patient who has no faith in the doctor or medicine is very difficult.  You should know that when it comes to your healing, from any sickness or disease, there is no doctor or man-made medicine that is more powerful than your Faith. Remember what Jesus said to the woman with issue of blood, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.”  (Matthew 9:22, NKJV) #Ask Dr. Ezeugwu.
