HERE’S HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE!

A California dentist teaches us all how to do it.
He offers free Sleep and Welfare screenings in Health Fairs and in his office.
He scores these benefits:
  • Helps these people discover their underlying causes of sleep dysfunction.
  • Spreads a huge awareness of the dangers of Obstructive Sleep Apnea 
  • Creates recognition that he is a generous, caring healthcare professional
  • Builds a Dental Sleep Medicine practice

We applaud you, Dr.Thuy Nga Le Vu
Now you ask, “Why didn’t I think of that?”  If you think it’s a good idea, DO IT NOW! Contact your mall administrator and local Chamber of Commerce and discuss the nearest opportunity.

Roseville, CA   California Dentist, Dr. Thuy Nga Le Vu and staff were recently trained in identifying, diagnosing (with physicians) and offering treatment for patients with the deadly disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnea.  Trained by Sleep Group Solutions, Galleria Smile Designs, and all three of their locations, will bring their turnkey protocol to three different health fairs to spread the awareness of sleep apnea and ways to treat it. Galleria Smile Design will also provide Sleep Apnea screening and treatment in-office, by appointment.

Upcoming health fairs are open to employees and some public members, at the California Correctional Health Care Service on August 26, The Department of State Hospitals Health and Wellness on September 8th, and the UPS Health and Safety BBQ on September 11th.  Dr. Vu and staff are looking forward to raising awareness, as well as offering a solution.  “We are honored to help spread awareness that this treatment can save lives, not only for themselves but others around them that may be affected.”  says Dr. Vu.  “It affects everyone around us, even when sharing the same road with someone falling asleep at the wheel due to OSA, they may not even be aware of it.”  Dr. Vu’s staff will do an initial patient screener with the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, and schedule appointments for any sleep apnea red flags.

“We find an enormous amount of patients and employees who suffer with high blood pressure,  obesity, gerd, and scalloped tongue.  These are all implications that OSA may be present.”  says Dr. Vu.  Snoring, along with many of the symptoms Dr. Vu’s practice is suffering with are commonly connected with OSA.  “Many of my patients are currently on CPAP, but are non compliant, so we are happy to offer a solution.”  Oral Appliance Therapy is an effective way to treat mild to moderate OSA, and are saving lives with non compliant CPAP users.

For patients who suffer with snoring, high blood pressure, daytime fatigue, morning headaches, and even Type 2 Diabetes, relief may come from Oral Appliance Therapy.  Sacramento area patients can reach Dr. Vu’s friendly and knowledgeable staff at 916-787-1232 or online at  Galleria Smile Designs.

Although Obstructive Sleep Apnea is nothing to laugh about, this funny parody serves a useful purpose in increasing public awareness of this serious disease. You will laugh so hard that you may cry…… but you won’t forget what you saw.   https://youtu.be/ZU4-Ge7PJr0

ARE YOU AT CAUSE OR AT EFFECT WITH YOUR HEALTH CARE?

Are you in control (“at cause”) of your conditions or believe that you have little or no control (“at effect”). 
Who controls us?
Do you believe that “the economy” can determine your success?
Do your friends’ opinions sway your better judgement and your needs?
Do dental “Insurance” companies control your acceptance of needed treatment?
Do you ignore your personal health needs because other people do the same?
Do you know people who continually place themselves at effect of other people and situations and feel they are victims of circumstances?  They have the idea that other people are responsible for how they feel and act : “That  person made me angry.”, or “My car is costing me money.”, or “People don’t want to spend money on dentistry today.” or “Sure I snore; doesn’t everyone?” Those who live their lives at effect often see themselves as victims with no choices whatsoever. The irony is that they do have choice and they have chosen not to choose but to be responsive to whatever is given to them.
At Cause
Putting yourself at cause is about taking responsibility – recognizing that you have the ability to respond rather than just react to whatever life throws at you. If you are at cause you can make things happen; you have the power to change things.   You always look for the opportunity and you move towards achieving your desired OUTCOMES. If things are not unfolding as you would like, you take action and explore other possibilities. Above all, you know you have choice in what you do. This is the time to do something different- stand out from the crowd – by taking an action.
At Effect
People who think they are at effect use words like “I can’t” and  “I tried.” When you say “I can’t,” the computer in your brain steps right up and supplies you with lots of reasons why you can’t, and it also blocks the creative part of your mind from figuring out how you can. Thus, the fact that you can’t comes true, further reinforcing your belief that you really can’t.  Instead of saying “I can’t”,  begin to ask “How can I?” and keep asking until your brain supplies you with the answer you want.  I once heard a “motivational speaker” say, “After you think you tried every possible method, and still haven’t succeeded, try another method.” You could have asked Thomas Edison about that.
Persistence
“If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.”
~Thomas Alva Edison
10-14-11 EDISON
“Genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration.”
“I tried” is another favorite of people who feel they are at effect. The entire presupposition behind “I tried” is failure. No one who succeeds ever says “I tried.” They say “I will do it.” Trying begins with the belief in failure. To try, you must make pictures in your head of failing. My suggestion is to make pictures in your head of accomplishing whatever it is you want to accomplish. When you do this, you give your brain a signal to figure out how to do it. When you “try,” you give your brain a signal to figure out a way to fail.
Get in the driver’s seat.
In the first of the Star Wars episodes, Yoda instructed Luke Sky Walker (Harrison Ford), “There is no ‘try’… There is either ‘do’ or ‘do not.” Why would someone focus on what they don’t want and see themselves as being at effect of causes over which they have no control?   Fear? Laziness?
Scientology and NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming are controversially at odds with each other on this issue but it remains that you can take control of your responses to whatever situation you find yourself in.  And you can consciously control the choices you have in any situation. Choose to be successful.

ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT DOING SOMETHING ….?

IF IT’S A GOOD IDEA, DO IT NOW!

“I’m thinking of doing it…..”
How many great ideas have you had in your life that were exciting… seemed like “sure things”… that had to be done… that could improve the world….that could improve YOUR world?  You thought about it, talked to a confidant about it, and then, fssst! Gone! Forgotten, or worse, watched someone else do it and get the credit for it. You’re in good company; we are all procrastinators to some degree.  Me, too.
When there’s a good idea, it’s in “the air”. A lot of people will think of it at the same time; but the person that takes action will be called the genius.
 “Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.”
Mark Twain
What have YOU been “thinking” of doing? Find a piece of paper right now and make the list. Were you “thinking” of getting that laser… registering for Dental Sleep Medicine training… writing an Office Manual… going to Italy for two weeks? Make the list and put in target dates for completion.  Then get it done! You’ll feel so good about your self.
Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off until the day after tomorrow what should have been done the day before yesterday.”
