Asthma Rates Among Children In The United States Are Dropping

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 22:47:23 +0100

BOSTON (CBS) – Asthma rates among children in the United States are dropping. According to the CDC, the percentage of children with asthma fell from 9.4% in 2010 to 8.3% in 2016. Hospitalizations were cut in half over a decade. Asthma is the leading cause of chronic illness in children and can be deadly, so declining rates of disease are encouraging. That means fewer missed days at school, fewer missed days at work for parents, and fewer kids dealing with the difficulties of managing a chronic illness. That said, half of kids with asthma had an asthma attack in 2016 so more work needs to be done. We need to continue to educate parents about avoiding triggers like tobacco, smoke, mold, and pet dander, reduce air pollution and teach parents and kids how to use medications properly. (So...

Researchers discover new enzymes central to cell function

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 05:00:00 +0100

(Case Western Reserve University) Doctors have long treated heart attacks, improved asthma symptoms, and cured impotence by increasing levels of a single molecule in the body: nitric oxide. The tiny molecule can change how proteins function. But new research featured in Molecular Cell suggests supplementing nitric oxide--NO--is only the first step. Researchers have discovered previously unknown enzymes in the body that convert NO into 'stopgap' molecules--SNOs--that then modulate proteins. The newly discovered enzymes help NO have diverse roles in cells. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

6,000-year-old track record for healing leaky gut

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 19:06:06 +0100

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...
