Experts to attend Women’s Healthcare expo
Dubai, January 21, 2009
Women’s Healthcare, the UAE’s most comprehensive exhibition dedicated to the well-being of women in the Middle East, will be held on the sidelines of the Bride Show Dubai.
Both the shows will be held from April 8 to 11, 2009, at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
Women’s Healthcare will have representatives of Tawam Hospiatal Breast Care Centre and The London Breast Clinic on hand to discuss any issues related to breast cancer, provide education and arrange screenings.
Another important element of the exhibition is homeopathic treatment. Homeopathic medicine is a key strand of complementary and alternative medicine and is specifically used to target hormonal issues, helping women with menopause, menstruation and skin complaints.
This form of treatment, like the exhibition itself, represents a shift to a more reactive and patient-orientated form of medical care. The trend has been identified in the US where doctors, initially responding to patient pressure, have started to integrate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into a standard course of treatment.
For instance, all 18 hospitals on US News’s most recent 'America’s Best Hospitals' provide CAM of some type. Also 36 US teaching hospitals are blending CAM with conventional care. The UCSF Medical Centre, the Stanford Medical Hospital and the UCLA Medical Centre, now implement complementary medicine as a part of their healthcare provision.
According to statistics released by the National Institute of Health in the US, CAM is one of the fastest growing features of modern medicine with 43 per cent of women and 12 per cent of children using it on a regular basis.
UltraMed’s Dr. Behjat will be on hand at the exhibition to provide answers to queries on all forms of homeopathic and complementary medicine.
Other exhibitors include Del Monte and Health Factory, companies dedicated to the provision of healthy food to women as a part of their non-stop schedules.
Del Monte has recently started to supply prepared fruit and vegetables at McDonalds and at service stations across the UAE in a bid to encourage a regular intake of vitamins and minerals that only these foods can provide.
Health Factory provides weight loss programmes to help people to change their lifestyle and food habits in order to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. – TradeArabia News Service
