How To Develop A Healthy Body Image

Developing a positive relationship with ourselves is difficult, but not impossible.  In fact if we spent even just 10 extra minutes in our day dedicating it to accepting ourselves as we are now, loving ourselves enough to improve, and taking action-, wow.  Where would we all be?  Let’s find out!
Self- worth:
First, we must believe we are worth this time and energy.  We were all given one body, so we must have acceptance that this is our own – it is a gift.  Rid the mentality of “Ugh I wish I had skinny legs like her” or “Damn I really wish I had big biceps like him”, just allowing these thoughts in will pollute your self worth.
Yes you may have the mentality of always wanting to improve, but the root, the base where I encourage you all to begin with is the belief that you are beautiful and handsome and worth the entire world, because of who you are, not what you look like.  Not if you have large breasts, small thighs – even if you do!  Great body types are all different,  this is how we are sure our bodies are gifts, because hey are unique in their own way.  If that’s not something to smile about…

The objects connected and know-how Big Data is about to transform medicine as we know it. Ecosystem Analysis which may well ensure your health by 2030

An increasingly connected patient
The analyzes are formal, connected objects will multiply: they will, according to the predictions 25 billion (Gartner) 50 billion (Cisco & Ericsson), or even 75 billion (Morgan Stanley) to accompany our daily by 2020.

In its report "Disruptive Technologies", the consulting firm McKinsey envisaged that the health sector represent between one third and half of the global economic impact of connected objects 2025. The connected objects will measure our welfare data health and to assess our health and we make personalized diagnostics. At the hospital or at home, we'll all become connected patients. Here, for example, some objects connected to the boundary between the connected health, Quantified Self and welfare, which promise to support our lives:

- A strap connected Google for physicians allowing them to track the health status of their patients       via the real-time measurement of the heart rate and other constants.

- A surgical robot developed by Google and the pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson               providing surgeons with less invasive and more accurate tools.

The smart button Pill'up that sticks on medicine boxes to remind patients to take their treatment.

The cognitive supercomputer and drugstore chain CVS are partnering on a preventive health platform to reason through 70 million health records.
According to Fortune, “IBM and CVS are going to work together to create Watson-powered solutions that will then be monetized.”
The partnership aims to transform health care by providing pharmacies, nurses, and physicians with quick responses and best practices for treating patients who endure chronic illnesses such as obesity, heart disease, and hypertension. These conditions are the leading cause of death and disability in the U.S. and account for 86 percent of the nation’s $2.9 trillion in annual health spending.
CVS has over 1,000 walk-in medical clinics, 7,600 retail stores, and some 70 million members with assorted medical plans, making Watson the perfect candidate to deliver new insights and unlock hidden patterns in a massive web of patient-data, CVS says.
Watson’s cognitive computing differs from conventional linear methods because it’s able to make sense of dynamic systems, similar to the way humans do. What makes Watson remarkable, according to IBM, is its ability to stay current by sifting through and interpreting millions of sources, from medical journals to Twitter, within seconds.
Those who are wary of machines learning everything there is to know about a patient’s health ought to know that Watson is heavily reliant on humans to interpret data. Here is how Watson’s cognitive system will interact across various fields in health:
First, Watson builds what’s called a “corpus,” essentially compiling a gigantic literature search on any given subject of interest. Next, with the help of humans, the corpus will be “curated” so only the most up to date and relevant information is stored. Watson then “ingests” or organizes the data by building indices of metadata for fast and efficient retrieval. The last step requires special human attention, where Watson is trained by human experts to interpret information, allowing it to find patterns using a technique called machine learning.
Additionally, CVS will make use of the IBM-operated Watson Health Cloud. It’s a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform for researchers, physicians, and insurers to access individualized patient data. The Watson Health Cloud de-identifies patient information so the privacy and security of individuals remains protected.
“The capabilities of the IBM Watson Health Cloud, when coupled with CVS Health’s insights into medication utilization and patient behavior, could prove transformative for the industry,” said Mike Rhodin, senior vice president at IBM Watson, in a press release.
“Together, we are moving aggressively to design, develop and introduce this new approach to care management—we anticipate that the first version of the solution will be available in early 2016,” a CVS representative said.
Watson is expected to offer health-care providers a holistic view of each and every patient, and its concentration on preventive efforts hopes to save millions in future costs.
