why medical tour

Examples why you would go abroad for treatment.

  • Your health insurance does not cover the specific treatment.
    • For example, for your annual physical exam the insurance only covers only the blood test of small numbers of disease. If you want test of more than cholesterol and blood sugar levels, for example test of 200 possible diseases, you can go to somewhere cheaper to have a screen test. If the test is positive, you may double check that specific disease in your home countries again.
  • Patients wish to access treatments not available at home
    • Chinese medicine
    • stem cell therapy
    • termination of pregnancy
    • unlicensed medications
    • gender re-assignment surgery
  • Waiting lists may be too long. A Chinese may have to wait for a match of his kidney forever in US.
  • Plastic surgery medical skills relying on their experiences. In certain countries, such as Bolivia and Colombia, plastic surgery has also become quite common. According to the “Sociedad Boliviana de Cirugia Plastica y Reconstructiva”, more than 70% of middle and upper class women in the country have had some form of plastic surgery.
  • Experience of the doctor: with China and India’s large population, doctors there have seen a lot more patients.
  • Combine your luxury travel with treatment.
  • Patients wish for greater confidentiality than may be feasible at home (e.g. HIV/AIDS treatment, infertility treatment, gender re-assignment surgery, face lifts)
  • New challenges arise from time to time, such as new medical developments which are not universally accessible.

The Beijing 24 form has many names including the 24 step form, the Peking form, simplified tai chi and even just the 24 postures.  This simplified tai chi form was created in 1956 by the National Physical Culture and Sports Commission of the People’s Republic of China as part of the drive to document and standardise Wushu training and introduce competition forms.

The Beijing 24 is aimed at the beginner and uses 24 representative moves from the Yang style. Although it has been simplified by reducing the repetition of moves and some of the more difficult kicks it contains the important and traditional characteristics and features of Yang style forms.

The short form enables beginners, old and young, to concentrate on, and appreciate, the essential principles of Tai Chi of effortless movement, relaxation and awareness of the mind and body as one.

Depending on how fast or slow you like to do your form the whole form takes between 4 and 8 minutes to do.

Windshield crack repair experiment

Windshield crack repair experiment 1:

Welcome to http://CarTrek.com
I hope you can learn from my mistakes. This should save your time and money. This is an attempt to repair a windshield crack with glue from a windshield repair kit.
1. The suction cup that came with the repair kit is not used. The suction cup is used for bull’s eye, small hole type of repair. If you have long crack type damage, you may just buy the glue without the suction cup to save money.
3. park the car in a place without sunlight, because you don’t want the glue harden as soon as you apply it.
4. I drilled a hole to stop the crack extension, but failed: it melted a drill bit from a rotary tool, broke a regular drill bit in half, and made the crack longer.
5. Crack can be outside layer, inside layer or the sandwich layer. If the crack is due to a flying rock or stone from outside, it is likely the crack is at the outside layer. My crack started from the back mirror stand, , thus it is difficult to deter
mine whether it is inside or outside.

Windshield crack repair experiment 2:

Continue from part 1 above


1. not sure whether the crack is inside or outside, so applied the glue to both inside and outside.
2. outside: fist apply glue to the cracks on windshield, and then cover the crack with curing strip.
3. inside: because of gravity, apply glue to the curing strip first, and then stick the curing strip to the windshield.
4. move the car to a place under sunlight.
5. Only a few minutes later, the outside glue hardened.
6. Inside glue still wet after an hour, because the ultraviolet light is blocked by the windshield glass.
7. clean the inside wet glue with paper towels.
8. use razor to clean outside hardened glue, be careful, razor is sharp.
9. I hope you learned from my mistakes. This should save your time and money.
