Patient discussion about organization

Q. i'm going on an organic diet for fibromyalgia does anyone know if this will help this awful pain

A. Couldn't find any research proving that organic diet improves fibromyalgia. On the other hand, couldn't actually find a research that contradict it (or even dealing with it), so no one can give you any established answer for your answer, so it's your decision.

Anyway, remember to consult a professional (e.g. a doctor) before you start any diet or any other intervention.

Q. Can a Chiropractor tell if your organs are shutting down?

A. She told me that because my spine is out of line so much, that it's causing my organs to shut down. I have been having bladder problems. I really think she is just trying to scare me.

Q. I'm looking for natural/organic ways to deal with carpal tunnel syndrome. My Boss has Carpal Tunnel syndrome. I'm looking for some natural remedies to help her ease the pain.

A. I have found that MSM (GNC brand) 1500mg per day works for me. I talked to an Orthopedic Surgeon asking him why it works... he said "they really don't know why it works, but it works for many of my patients". When I stop taking my MSM the symptoms return so it is not a cure.

I have tried other brands of MSM and found the GNC brand works the best for me. It takes about 2 weeks to begin to see the results and several more weeks to get the full affect.

In this model of brand and reputation, identity is how an organisation wishes to be seen, and reputation is how an organisation is seen.
- managing identity: Identify the "values" that will best enable the organisation to fulfil its business objectives (e.g., ensure sound investment, successful recruitment, a licence to operate and competitive advantage).
- managing performance: Embed the values and image within the organisation's operations to ensure that the way an organisation operates lives up to the values it endorses.
- managing reputation: Organisational reputation is formed by stakeholders reassessing their "image" of an organisation based on the individual's experiences of its operations.
This in mind, does it matter if an organisation separates the management of its brand and reputation between different functional divisions?
