Shiva GopalVasishta, MD has been a practicing Neurologist for over 40 years. He currently practices in Voorhees, New Jersey at Eastern Neurodiagnostic Associates. The complicated, yet promising field of neurological study has always fascinated Vasishta. He’s dedicated his entire adult life to advancing the medical treatment and care of patients suffering from various forms of neurology trauma and conditions.Dr. Shiva GopalVasishta attended Government Medical College and graduated in 1979. His residency was completed at Boston City Hospital. Among his neurological focus, Dr. Shiva GopalVasishta also specializes in Psychiatry. His New Jersey practice also supports the Spanish language.
Something very dear to Vasishta’s career is the clinical trial results of a revolutionary therapy treatment for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The new evidence suggests that high-dose immunosuppressive therapy along with an immediate transplant of the patient’s own blood-forming stem cells could induce sustained remission of relapsing-remitting MS. MS is an autoimmune disease that causes the body’s immune system to attack its central nervous system.
The trial was operated over a five-year period. The end results showed that 69 percent of trial participants that received the high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (HDIT/HCT) survived without experiencing progressive disability, relapse of MS symptoms, or any brain lesions. Another interesting fact is that none of the participants took any kind of MS medications after the HDIT/HCT treatment. Based on other studies performed by numerous other institutions, MS drugs have a lower success rate the HDIT/HCT.It’s important to remember that these results are only suggestive. There’s no definitive evidence that would suggest that this is a cure in any way. HDIT/HCT is the first step finding a cure.

Being successful as a solopreneur or entrepreneur, you need to be very strategic. Some days will be hard and others smooth and on such days, you will need inspiration from entrepreneurs who have gone through the same challenges.

Be Patient and Persistent
Being successful at entrepreneurship requires that you are very patient. According to Milstein, there are no shortcuts to success and success cannot be achieved overnight. Milstein learnt this the hard way, but you don’t have to, you can simply learn from his story. Milstein told Ideamensch of a time when he was selling art to temples in Israel. At that time, he was in campus and needed to make some quick cash. So when he started out and sold every last art on his stock, he knew that that was it for him. He went ahead and bought more art with the goal of selling it overnight. But this did not happen. He ended up a frustrated man as his art took more time to sell.
Don’t Put Your Eggs in One Basket
Adam Milstein advices entrepreneurs not to put all their eggs in one basket. The story discussed above taught him that. The best strategy to acquiring success is to diversify. Do lots of different stuff and identify one that is successful. At that point, you can add more money to grow the product line or company.
Milstein advises entrepreneurs to always follow up on leads. According to Milstein, if one does not follow up on contracts or leads, for fear of failure, they lose even better chances of success.

It is common for marriages to run into problems. However, one of the major downfalls of marriages is the approach to the problem. Many couples allow the issue to destroy their marriage slowly. While some couples may tackle the issue, they may actually be taking on the symptoms of one underlying problem in the marriage. Often times, they are not aware that there is a root cause to all of the issues. While couples may take care of the issue that springs up, many other issues will arise in that one issue’s place. This is one of the reasons that it is important to find the root cause of the issue.
The interesting thing is that it can be very hard to find the underlying behind marital problems without the help of a counselor. Fortunately, there are tons of marriage counselors that are qualified to help couples get to the root cause of all of their marital issues. However, there needs to be the right touch of friendliness. The counselor has to be good at building trust in this relationship so that they can be able to get the couple to open up about what is going on.
Among the counselors that have such a talent for getting people to open up is Patty Rocklage. She knows how to get people to admit what it is that is troubling them. Often times, one person in the relationship is dealing with some kind of issue that the other person is unaware of and this could cause a lot of confusion. Another thing that Patty Rocklage is good at is fixing communication breakdowns. Often times, one person tends to shut the other out in a marriage. This is often the cause of a lot of frustrations in the relationship. Therefore, it is very important to get counseling in order to save the marriage.
