How you can become a healer.

In one of my earlier post, I wrote about the book, ‘The Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle.

I have the habit of marking with a pencil, whenever I read something which touches my heart.

But while reading this book, I simply was not able to keep down the pencil. Every word, every sentence that was written had profound impact upon me.

Here I recount about our healing power.
“Compassion becomes healing in the widest sense. In that state, your healing influence is primarily based not on doing but on being.
Everybody you come in contact with will be touched by your presence and affected by the peace that you emanate, whether they are conscious of it or not.

Your peace is so vast and deep that anything that is not peace disappears into it as if it had never existed.

Animals, tress and flowers will feel your peace and respond to it.”

I will write more about the book in due course.
Now speaking about healing without medicines, Health Care professions may disagree with me.

By the way do you know about a leading online Drug and Health Plan Formulary Product Developer called Epocrates.

They declare that clinicians and support staff can now access an online version of its free and trusted mobile drug and formulary guide, used by more than 500,000 healthcare professionals.

For example, if a clinician wants to find the application of Potassium Chloride, they can get instant information by accessing the website of Epocrates.

Epocrates Online provides clinicians with access to critical information about more than 3,300 drugs, including dosing, pricing, potential drug interactions and Medicare Part D formulary coverage from any computer with an Internet connection.

Healthcare professionals can quickly and easily obtain formulary status, drug coverage and alternative and generic drug options for their patients’ health plans with Epocrates Online.

“I’ve been using Epocrates products on my PDA for years and find them indispensable to my practice. I think it is wonderful that my colleagues and staff that don’t yet use a PDA can now access the same information online to help them improve patient care,” said Jacob Wood, MD, assistant professor, UAB Selma Family Residency Program.

Epocrates products are designed by practicing physicians to deliver the most clinically useful and relevant information that healthcare professionals need at the point of care. This enables clinicians to focus on their patients rather than having to reference multiple websites or search through medical texts for information.

“The new online offering will help us grow our network beyond the healthcare professionals that currently use our PDA-based applications,” said Kirk Loevner, Epocrates chairman and chief executive officer.

Clinicians who want a more comprehensive web reference can subscribe to the Epocrates Online premium product. The premium version boasts additional content and features such as more than 400 alternative medicine monographs, patient education handouts, pill pictures, pill identifier and hundreds of medical tables and calculations.

The company has built a clinical network connecting nearly 500,000 healthcare professionals, including one in four U.S. physicians and one in two U.S. medical students, with other healthcare stakeholders.

Epocrates' products have shown a positive impact on patient safety, healthcare efficiency and patient satisfaction.

Epocrates was recently ranked 257 in the 24th annual Inc.500 ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. For more information, please visit Epocrates.
