Why Tai Chi Works So Well For Pain Relief

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:43:14 +0100

There are more questions than answers when it comes to fibromyalgia, or chronic pain. What doctors know is that it causes muscle pain throughout the body, fatigue, sleep problems and even psychological impairment and depression. What they don’t know is what causes it and how best to treat its generalized symptoms. In a new study published in the BMJ, researchers report encouraging results involving one way to reduce the painful effects of fibromyalgia: with tai chi, an ancient practice originating in martial arts that has since become part of traditional Chinese medicine. The mind-body practice involves both physical and psychological exercises that promote health. While small studies have suggested that tai chi could help reduce symptoms of fibromyalgia, no rigorous trial has compar...

You Asked: Should I Exercise When I ’m Sick?

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 13:00:10 +0100

If you want to protect yourself from colds and flu, regular exercise may be the ultimate immunity-booster. Studies have shown that moderate aerobic exercise—around 30 to 45 minutes a day of activities like walking, biking or running—can more than halve your risk for respiratory infections and other common winter maladies. There’s some evidence that very intense exercise—running a marathon, say—can briefly suppress your immune function, says Dr. Bruce Barrett, a professor of family medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. But in general, physical activity is a great way to shield yourself from illness, he says. Other experts agree. “Your immune system needs activity to do its job better,” says David Nieman, a p...

When I was traveling in India, I had the privilege of studying Ayurvedic medicine with traditional Master Healers. Surrounded by lakes, oceans and mountains, Kerala, India, is the birthplace of Ayurveda medicine. My plane landed in Mumbai. From there, I made the 800-mile trip to Kerala down on the southwestern-most tip of the Indian peninsula. With origins dating back 6,000 years, Kerala is the birthplace of Ayurvedic medicine. I spent a lot of time at the AyurMana or “ancient healing house.” This is the oldest existing school of Ayurvedic medicine in the world. It was there that I observed how quickly Ayurvedic doctors brought the conversations with their patients around to the gut. In fact, the most common Ayurvedic prescription in India today is a gentle but powerful herbal...

Stop Your Body Attacking Itself

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 19:49:33 +0100

Modern medicine has no cure for autoimmune diseases — and, sadly, most doctors don’t understand them. I’m talking about disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis (MS) and more. In all, there are about 80 autoimmune diseases affecting organs throughout the body. They occur when your own immune system becomes overactive and attacks your body instead of diseases and foreign invaders. The standard mainstream treatment for most autoimmune disorders relies on Big Pharma drugs that cover up symptoms or suppress your immune system, and make you vulnerable to life-threatening infections, like pneumonia and colitis. Nature has a better solution… Exciting new research reveals that a single molecule ha...

But in the past hundred years, our environment has changed faster than we can evolve with it. We weren’t designed to live in a modern world of manmade chemicals, toxins and pollutants. That’s why purging your body of pollutants is more important today than ever. Environmental toxins have become a major health threat. These toxins have linked with many of today’s chronic diseases including: • Cancer • Diabetes • Alzheimer’s • Asthma • Liver disease • Chronic fatigue syndrome • Kidney disease • ADHD • Parkinson’s • Thyroid disease In fact,...

Lightning Process 'could help children with chronic fatigue syndrome', study claims

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 17:00:00 +0100

Conclusion The results from this very small randomised controlled trial showed that people having LP therapy in addition to usual CFS/ME care had improved physical function, fatigue and anxiety symptoms at six months, and improved school attendance and depressive symptoms at 12 months. However, there are a number of limitations to this research that need to be considered: Participants in both groups improved, so both treatments were effective to some extent. This was a very small trial, and the results analysis involved fewer than the 100 people recruited. It would need to be repeated in a much larger group to demonstrate more robust findings. A number of outcomes were looked at, so it was very likely that some of them would return positive findings by chance – the improvements mig...

I still wonder how much of the key information was retained. This is a constant theme in all my classes. I still remember being on the other side of the table: in uniform struggling to stay awake. Leading EMS organizations are finally addressing the problems of fatigue and shift work, so change is coming.  In the meantime, we still have to take care of ourselves.

'Contaminated air' on planes linked to health problems

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0100

Conclusion These findings indicate that on rare occasions, pilots have not been able to perform as usual due to poor air quality in the cabin. Also poor air quality has been linked to health problems in the long term. However, there are some limitations of the study that need to be considered: The authors claim they have demonstrated a cause-and-effect relationship based on certain criteria. But with the exception of the acute air toxicity incident investigation reports in the second study, these types of study cannot prove causality. While it is likely that exposure to chemicals is toxic, this study did not link many of the symptoms with on-board air samples. There is still a possibility that the acute symptoms experienced by the pilots and crew were brought on by other things too, not...

The Battle For America Is The Battle For Science

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 15:32:53 +0100

The man who popularized Greek-style yogurt, Hamdi Ulukaya, is probably one of the only, if not the only, billionaire of recent years who does not owe his fortune to the government. Jeff Bezos does, Bill Gates does, Mark Zuckerberg does, along with dozens of others who have amassed fortunes in the digital age. They are smart men all who have exploited opportunities, which would not have existed but for the government’s presence in science. I applaud individuals who build on government discoveries to make their fortunes. But government-backed science, which has brought us everything from GPS to the internet, is in for a radical reversal, as laid out in the Trump administration’s budget proposal. It was greeted with derision when it was released, with many hoping Congress will rev...



I Suppressed My Periods To Save My Health

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 20:30:35 +0100

This piece by Michelle Marie Wallace originally appeared on The Establishment, an independent multimedia site founded and run by women. “Maybe I should stop my periods.” It wasn’t something I had ever before considered and I had, in fact, wondered if there could be potential, unknown, long-term ramifications when friends of mine stopped theirs. I had never considered my periods an inconvenience or gross or annoying; in fact, I had liked the rhythm of them. The times I had been on birth control I resented how it made me feel divorced from my body. When I asked this question, I was sitting in my doctor’s office, nine months into antiviral treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome, 11 years after starting treatment for Lyme disease. The previous year had be...



Paying it 26.2 miles forward

There is a spot on the Boston Marathon route called “The Liver Mile.” It’s where the grind begins, where the storied course starts to tests runners and where legs often weary from pounding 16.8 miles of punishing roads. Yet, it’s also where 21-year-old Tom Williams, a liver transplant recipient from Dracut, Massachusetts, first fell in love with the idea of running the Boston Marathon. “I wasn’t thinking about the difficulty of it,” he says. “I was just thinking, I want to run for other people who are sick.” Located in front of Newton-Wellesley Hospital, “The Liver Mile” is where volunteers hand out water and gather in support of the Run for Research team, which raises money to benefit the American Liver Foundation. For years, while someone else ran for him as pa...



Trauma: Then and Now

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 13:45:45 +0100

How do I know that I’m suffering from the sequelae of a traumatic event? Trauma happens. It happens in everyday life. If not discharged properly it sleeps in our bodies and in our souls. When it sleeps, it morphs and over time the symptoms of which become far removed from the trauma of origin, so much so we might not identify the connection. Without that connection, symptoms cannot truly resolve. That is the course of the aftermath of a traumatic moment or event. If you agree that we are comprised of energy and matter, then you will understand that trauma is in our bodies and in our souls. How does trauma create symptoms? When trauma occurs, we fight, flight or freeze. With the first two, we become mobilized — that is, we move into some engagement of the energy. Neither is great, b...
