There is a new study that concludes that diabetes is directly related to the onset of Alzheimer s disease This is a huge breakthrough in elder care and could prove to be extremely helpful when treating either of these two diseases Doctors have long suspected that there was a relationship between the two but now they are claiming that they have hard proof of the connection In fact the study went on to say that the results are striking In brains with diabetes there was increased amyloid beta peptide pathology This also happens to be a hallmark trait of Alzheimer s disease When there was no diabetes present this pathology was not present in the brain The study also looked at eyes considered an extension of the brain More specifically researchers looked at the retina The retina is far more accessible for study in living patients and researchers used this fact to their advantage What they found is that because there were amyloid beta peptides in the retina in diabetes patients too scanning the retina might be a useful and easy tool for diagnosing Alzheimer s in the near future This might be the early warning sign that scientists have been looking for Detecting Alzheimer s early makes quality of life a whole lot better for people with the disease as this increases the amount of time doctors have to try and slow down the degenerative process Usually the proteins that are deposited in the brain are not found until much later in the life of an Alzheimer s patient The brain is a hard to access organ in living patients and by discovering these toxic compounds much earlier bigger and more effective steps can be taken in the treatment and possible prevention of this disease There has been little evidence to suggest why these toxins appear in the brain Fortunately now doctors have a better grasp on their roots Diabetes increases the neurotoxins in the brain and retina and these are a distinct feature of Alzheimer s By connecting these two it is not decisively clear as to whether early treatment of diabetes and diabetes prevention will prevent or reduce the likelihood of the onset of Alzheimer s In the past it s been observed that insulin plays a role in memories If the brain becomes insulin resistant then memory functions might decrease This is a vicious cycle and may be one of the key components of how these two seemingly different diseases are related at their core These observations will likely play a large role in the future of pinpointing and treating Alzheimer s disease Again the better the knowledge we have of the disease the closer we come to effective treatments for it By Matthew G Young Article Source http EzineArticles com 7186911 03

YOUR GUIDE TO N AT U R AL LY HEALING YOUR BODY Let s be honest with all the prescription drugs in combination with unhealthy diets it makes sense that we get sick or develop medical conditions It s amazing that we don t get sick more But we don t have to live like this You can take steps to heal yourself naturally before medication is an absolute necessity Just think for a second your body can naturally heal itself If you fall and scrape your elbow it will bleed scab and then your skin will repair the wounded area Think of the poor diets and overconsumption of unnecessary medications as a fall that we have taken Our bodies have the abilities to repair themselves but we need to take actions to naturally help the process DIET AND LIFESTYLE Your diet is the thing that can make or break your health If you are eating a lot of sugar salty foods junk foods processed foods meat or dairy products frequently you can develop health problems such as obesity heart disease or diabetes All of these are continually rising health issues in America Add little to no exercise on top of a poor diet and it s a recipe for disaster The problem is that people aren t aware of the damaging effects of the foods they are eating Staying healthy can be as simple as eating a lot more fruit and vegetables cutting out high quantities of meat limiting dairy consumption and avoiding processed foods Let food help you on your quest to health If you eat real food veggies fruit whole grains and nuts seeds you don t have to take vitamins and minerals which may have added chemicals you aren t aware of These foods deliver you the essential nutrients your body needs Combine that with about 30 60 minutes of exercise five days a week and you ll be well on your way to a healthier life HEALTHY IS A MINDSET Living healthy is more than just eating an apple or salad once a week It s more than doing a cleanse and then reverting back to old habits While a cleanse helps detoxify the body it doesn t mean that you ll be healthy even if you start eating fried foods and things like candy or chips again Being healthy is about understanding how you can use food herbs and natural remedies to your advantage For instance eating dandelion greens can help cleanse the liver and decrease inflammation cranberries help cleanse the blood and apple cider vinegar can be used to take off moles and skin tags It s amazing what you can do with what is naturally available to you LACK OF MOVEMENT IS CRIPPLING Unless you are walking around through the eyes of your phone and playing Pokemon Go people have no problem sitting down and watching television or movies for hours everyday Exercise becomes a lingering thought in the back of your head but gets flushed away with the release of a new TV series In addition to this for instance sitting down at a desk job for instance can take a toll on your health Your posture can suffer and can cause chronic neck and back pain Sitting can also promote laziness which means you aren t getting outside and absorbing muchneeded vitamin D We at Dherbs believe in our products They are 100 plant based and don t contain any chemical additives They are designed to set you on a path to a healthier life They are a way for you to rethink your way of life and discover what healthy living truly means We wouldn t sell our products if we didn t believe in them In a world of distorted health views and misinformation about medicine we assure you that our products are genuinely natural and can aid in your path to proper health 04 By Vinnie Stevens Article Source http EzineArticles com 9489260

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT CBD Cannabidiol or CBD as it is commonly known is a very interesting chemical And it is responsible for many people changing their views on marijuana use for medicinal purposes While everyone has heard of THC not many are aware of CBD The two chemicals are both contained in marijuana but they serve very different purposes While the THC in marijuana is going to get you high CBD is something that poses huge benefits from a medicinal point of view and it does not have the same side effects on the body as THC Here are some facts to know about CBD KEY INGREDIENT IN CANNABIS When we look at the main ingredients in cannabis we immediately note the relevance of THC and CBD These chemicals are present in the highest concentrations in cannabis crop no matter how it is grown Even recreational marijuana breeders have noticed that there are high levels of CBD in their crop Some have even managed to grow cannabis with a lot of CBD but very little THC and these strains are becoming more and more popular each year People want the benefits of CBD without the negative side effects of THC CBD is NOT Psychoactive Contrary to popular belief products such as CBD oil or CBD capsules are not going to get you high The CBD in these products or the CBD you find in cannabis is not going to make you feel the same as the THC does It is THC which is a psychoactive substance CBD is not It does not act in the same manner when it comes into contact with your brain s pathways It does not interfere with your psychomotor or psychological functions either For those who want a simpler explanation CBD is 100 percent safe and is not going to get you high left to right CBD rich hemp oil CBD rich cannabis bud CBD extract resin Medical BenefIts There are so many different health benefits to taking CBD For example it can help people who are experiencing excessive nausea and vomiting because they are going through chemotherapy or some other type of treatment It is also great at suppressing the seizures some people get on a regular basis Another benefit to CBD is how it helps combat inflammation and neurodegenerative disorders It is also great for depression and anxiety sufferers So if you are suffering from one of these conditions you may want to talk to your physician about the possibility of getting on CBD oil or CBD capsule supplements for a few months CBD Limits THC Effects It is interesting to note that strains of cannabis that only contain a lot of THC are the ones that cause people to feel sleepy disoriented and high Many users who use the cannabis strains that contain a high amount of CBD comment that they do not suffer the same symptoms In fact some claim to feel more alert This is because CBD is counteracting the impact of the THC on your body rendering those strains of cannabis relatively harmless too 06 By Edmund Brunetti Article Source http EzineArticles com expert Edmund_Brunetti 456890

TYPE II DIABETES Two New Medications for Treating High Blood Sugar Both tetrahydrocannabivarin THCV and cannabidiol CBD are phytochemicals similar to the active ingredient in marijuana but without the psychoactive effects According to a report published in the journal Diabetes Care in August 2016 both molecules could be helpful in treating high blood sugar levels in people who have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes Scientists at the University of Nottingham in Derby and several other research institutions in the UK looked at 62 participants with a Type 2 diabetes diagnosis It was found THCV decreased their fasting blood sugar levels when compared with a placebo and improved the ability of their pancreas to make insulin CBD improved their insulin sensitivity and helped their pancreas to make insulin in response to their food intake From these results researchers concluded both substances might be useful and safe as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes CBD is also under investigation for treating various other medical conditions including 1 Inflammation According to the National Institutes of Health in the United States the drug CBD shows promise for treating autoimmune diseases in which the immune system can attack the heart and other organs 2 Psychosis Schizophrenia According to Schizophrenia Research CBD shows promise as an antipsychotic 3 Seizures According to Seminars in Pediatric Neurology May 2016 CBD is in clinical studies for treating childhood seizure disorder 4 Spasms Painful spasms of multiple sclerosis might yield to CBD 5 Cancer The researchers at Sheba Cancer Research Center in Israel are studying CBD as a treatment for neuroblastoma or nervous system tumors 6 Alcholism Studies are currently preliminary 7 Multiple Sclerosis According to a 2013 study in Neurobiological Disease CBD could well be an effective treatment due to its anti inflammatory abilities 8 Depression Researchers in Spain are optimistic about using CBD as an antidepressant according to the online version of Neuropharmacology 9 Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD According to the New York School of Medicine in the United States CBD can be used for a short time to treat anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder panic disorder social anxiety disorder obsessive compulsive disorder and post traumatic stress disorder 10 Seizure disorder In May 2016 Pharmacology Research reported CBD could be a safe and efficient treatment for seizure disorder after more and larger clinical studies have been conducted 11 Acne CBD s anti inflammatory properties could make it an excellent candidate for treating acne 12 Alzheimer s disease In July 2016 Behavioral Pharmacology reported CBD could be the ideal treatment THVC is under investigation for treating post traumatic stress disorder PTSD Its calming effect could help relieve suffering in conditions that include anxiety Time will tell the consensus among the medical establishment seems to be more testing is needed Although managing your disease can be very challenging Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you need to just live with You can make simple changes to your daily routine as well as lowering both your weight and blood sugar levels Hang in there the longer you do it the easier it gets For nearly 25 years Beverleigh Piepers has searched for and found a number of secrets to help you build a healthy body Go to http DrugFreeType2Diabetes com to learn about some of those secrets The answer isn t in the endless volumes of available information but in yourself By Beverleigh H Piepers Article Source http EzineArticles com 9517102 07

CRPS THE D I SEASE YOU VE NEVER H EA RD OF Imagine someone lightly running a feather over your skin yet your brain interprets that feeling as if someone is holding a torch to your skin causing a very intense burning sensation Imagine breaking your arm and developing chronic pain and swelling that never leaves Just think of someone simply touching your skin and because of it being so hypersensitive to touch that it makes you want to crawl out of your own skin The disease name is CRPS Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and the McGill Pain Index rates it as the most painful form of chronic pain that exists Triggers of the condition are usually the result of a surgery or trauma yet what s going on within the body is anything but simple As of today there is no known cure for CRPS and patients are having to live a life of chronic pain What are the symptoms that present themselves with CRPS There is burning swelling and chronic pain Patients suffer from other symptoms such as muscle spasms loss of mobility discoloration temperature sensitivity and abnormal sweatiness to name a few can present themselves It s a complex illness because often no two cases display themselves in the same way According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke the disease itself affects both men and women although it is more common in women It is more common in people around the age of 40 If you ask someone diagnosed they would most certainly tell you that CRPS is one of the most debilitating illnesses there is today What makes the condition so hard to diagnose is that several of the symptoms that are present with CRPS are invisible Therefore people sometimes refer to it as an invisible illness This can make it very difficult for this very reason for a physician to diagnose So what s going on within the body That s really difficult question to answer because no two cases are the same What I ve heard some physicians and specialists say is that an individual s nervous system is in a heightened state of awareness There are tiny peripheral nerve endings or fibers in the tissue of the skin that carry pain signals that communicate with blood vessels In individuals with CRPS specialists have found abnormalities in these nerve endings When these tiny nerve fibers become damaged through trauma or injury they can set off all the symptoms of CRPS These abnormal peripheral responses can then trigger abnormal neurological responses in the spinal cord and brain leading to more complex disorders The condition can also affect the immune system which is why we see the swelling redness and the change in temperature of the skin CRPS also fits into the category of being an autoimmune disease How is CRPS treated According to the Mayo Clinic treatment for the patient is through medication and therapy The two most common types of medications used in my opinion would be intravenous ketamine a strong anesthetic drug and antidepressants used for neuropathic pain such as Gabapentin or Amitriptyline As far as therapies that are used in trying to treat the condition in my opinion there are three that yield the best results Physical therapy gentle guided exercise that help range of motion and to decrease pain Biofeedback relaxing your body to decrease pain and Spinal Cord Stimulation electrical stim along your spine to decrease pain What are the signs that you may have CRPS According to the NIH National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke if you suffer from pain that has gone on for a prolonged period of time and is severe and constant This pain can present itself in the form of a burning sensation that can affect a limb or other part of the body Another sign can be a constant experience of temperature changes between the affected limb and the opposite limb Ultimately if you are showing any of these symptoms it s recommended to seek a physician s attention By Ross McCreery 10

Every patient knows that finding a doctor who believes in his or her ability to return to a semi normal life is a rarity I longed for the day I would find such a doctor until I had the privilege of speaking to Dr Vincent DePasquale a true patient advocate While being very naive at first to the subject of Stem Cell Therapy I found myself to be a true believer that this is the best kept medical secret out there It s something the drug companies and insurance companies do not want you to find out about why because it s using your own body to heal It s called core medicine Dr DePasquale can help anyone from a diabetic to someone with traumatic brain injury If you re looking to get a new lease on life give his office a call I know I made my appointment What examples have you witnessed firsthand Dr Vincent DePasquale NSI C o f o u n d e r Stem cells are present within all of us and they are responsible for healing regeneration and the maintenance of tissues Therefore we can harvest these cells in abundance and apply them in such a way to supply to damaged and dysfunctional tissues within the body This application is an effort to combat many chronic and degenerative conditions associated with the aging process Personal Office Location 5311 Spring Hill Drive Spring Hill FL 34606 Phone Number 352 398 1231 NSI O f f i c e L o c a t i o n s Clearwater Florida Spring Hill Florida Brandon Florida Boca Raton Florida Website https nsistemcell com What NSI and Dr Vincent DePasquale have to say about stem cell therapy an interview by Victoria Gandy What made nsi and yourself want to do stem cell therapy We have always treated patients with one thing in mind providing safe medical treatments with the sole purpose of promoting health and not just palliating symptoms As a patient advocate I am always and will continue to always look for as many tools that will improve patient outcomes Therefore I attend many conferences and continuing education programs to add tools to our practice I had a basic understanding of stem cell therapy and the benefits and was following the progression of this technology very closely While at a seminar I happened to meet an individual that was the catalyst for implementing stem cell therapy in our practice She happens to be the 1 stem cell scientist in the world ranked by the academy of regenerative Practices and I was absolutely floored by the science and what is possible in the treatment of many chronic illnesses I immediately immersed myself and our practices in implementing stem cell therapy and have been doing it ever since 12 We see amazing responses every day and it s easy to get caught up in the day to day where those responses become the norm We recently had a 24 year old who was paralyzed from the waist down as a result of a stray bullet One week following his first treatment he began to move his legs It was an amazing moment at the office He came in for his post op visit and was discussing his improvements with a big smile on his face and when he showed us that he could actually move his legs for the first time in over a year I looked over at my office manager and she began to cry It was a really great moment What are the health benefits of the therapy What are some of the conditions that see the greatest benefits What we do is mitigate the healing process by obtaining the products necessary for healing and applying towards damaged or dysfunctional tissue Therefore there are many conditions that can be treated such as joint arthritis and COPD Even more complex conditions such as diabetes autoimmune conditions and neurological conditions such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries and Multiple sclerosis can be treated in this manner We are seeing more and more literature showing great promise for many new and unique conditions with this treatment Remember anywhere there is damage or dysfunction within the body we can apply stem cells in an effort to promote healing Where would you like to see stem cell therapy go in the next few years Personally I believe that using the body s innate ability to heal is the future of medicine and at its core that is what regenerative medicine is In the future I would love to see stem cell therapy become a part of the standard of care in both a therapeutic and preventative application Palliating symptoms with drugs and surgery rarely provides a long term solution for chronic illness By Victoria Gandy

The primary and most well known pharmacological action of ketamine is NMDA antagonism This is the main rationale for the use of ketamine infusions to treat chronic pain and psychiatric conditions that are not responsive to conventional therapeutic options Many studies have shown increased NMDA expression and activity in animal models of chronic pain Furthermore subsequent studies have shown that NMDA antagonism is useful in these same models of chronic pain The most studied of these NMDA antagonists is ketamine and is the subject of many current CRPS research endeavors Ketamine exhibits extensive polypharmacology that has yet to be fully understood in the context of CRPS This has led some to regard the drug as a pharmacologist s nightmare because there is not one clear defining mechanism of action However we believe the multiple pharmacological actions of ketamine may produce an entourage effect This effect is uniquely beneficial for the management of many treatment resistant psychiatric conditions CRPS and other pain conditions that are refractory to opiate therapy or in patients where opiate narcotics are contraindicated A s st a t e d o n no pa i n han n a co m Ketamine may be used for relief of acute or chronic pain A single intravenous dose of the medication prior to skin incision was found to decrease postoperative pain and reduce morphine consumption Ketamine can also be used to counter postoperative pain in patients with a tolerance to opioids increased sensitivity to pain and pain caused by stimuli that are not usually painful A Korean study concluded that a small dose of ketamine provided pain relief proportional to fentanyl a very potent narcotic pain reliever in the management of acute postoperative pain A study done in India concluded that low dose ketamine provided superior pain relief resulting in less sedation and less nausea and vomiting than intermittent morphine in patients suffering from musculoskeletal trauma Ketamine s use for acute pain is recommended as an addition to traditional narcotic pain relievers It is not meant to be used alone for acute pain relief The optimal dose of ketamine for control of acute pain has not been established But it is known that a narrow window exists between the optimal dose for pain relief and the dose for anesthesia causing loss of consciousness Most of the clinical trials exploring the use of ketamine in the treatment of chronic pain have been related to neuropathic or nerve pain A s st a t e d o n k etamin e co m 15

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 100 people die every day from prescription drug overdose The overall number of deaths due to opiate painkillers have quadrupled compared to the number of deaths from cocaine and heroin combined In a report issued by the National Library of Medicine nearly twenty percent of the U S population recreationally abuse prescription drugs Taking Action Now the federal government has taken up the war on prescription drugs Many individual states have followed suit in an effort to make prescription drugs a little more difficult for physicians to prescribe and not so easily accessible for individuals to abuse However a large question looms in the air regarding whether or not the efforts by the government are really going to be effective or if they are living in a pipe dream One of the goals of the U S Drug Enforcement Administration has been to prevent the mass quantities of prescription drugs that flood the black market every day The black market allows individuals to purchase opiates stimulants and other sedatives from the street and or from the internet where there seems to be no regulation While the efforts have paid off in stopping hundreds of fraudulent pain clinics responsible for writing WAR ON thousands of prescriptions no questions asked as well as a number of unscrupulous Internet pharmacies There is a growing concern from honest doctors and pharmacies if the new regulations are to make it more difficult for patients with legitimate need to receive their medications In other words is the government throwing the baby out with the bath water In recent years the DEA has applied the same tactics against pharmaceutical chains that have failed to abide by the strict record keeping guidelines and security procedures to prevent black market supply Among the chains to be caught in the middle are CVS and Walgreens both cited for a breach of regulations Same Strategies Different Cartel According to Michele Leonhard a DEA Administrator the agency employs the same strategies used to go after the drug cartels and drug lords in the war on prescription drugs There is no doubt that prescription drug abuse is a real and present danger in the U S however many believe that the tactics will ultimately hurt the patients who need the drugs and in the end may very well create a shortage of the prescription medications Congress Demands Action The National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that in the last decade opiate painkiller prescriptions increased from 75 5 million to 209 5 million According to a former DEA agent an important contributing factor to the increase are wellmeaning physicians who prescribe too freely Now the DEA has fallen under extreme pressure from Congress to do something about the problem In addition to changes implemented by the federal government in 2012 many states including Michigan Tennessee and Colorado have placed strict laws on physicians and pharmacies regarding prescription drugs These laws went into effect in 2013 Whether or not the war on prescription drugs will be a victory is anyone s guess We will just have to wait and see PRESCRIPTION 16 By Lara Schuster Article Source http EzineArticles com 7674448 DRUGS

f unky diabetic THE LINK BETWEEN DIABETES AND KIDNEY DISEASE If you re a 90 s Hip Hop fan like I am then you ll likely think immediately of A Tribe Called Quest and hear Phife Dawg s voice in your head Maybe he didn t give much thought to it at the time when he wrote the lyrics but he deserves major props for speaking out He bravely did so several times over the years as his battle with diabetes progressed and like so many other diabetics led to kidney disease and ultimately kidney Failure The link between diabetes and kidney disease is not recognized by most people and let s be frank kidney disease itself is rarely talked about So would it surprise you to know that diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease accounting for 44 of patients newly diagnosed with kidney failure How about the fact that 35 of adult diabetics 20 years or older have kidney disease Or that kidney disease kills more people each year then breast cancer or prostate cancer What about the fact that in the United States alone 26 Million Americans 1in9 adults have kidney disease and 90 don t even know it If these statistics shock and alarm you they should As we continue to see diabetes on the rise you guessed it we see an increase in those with kidney disease Although it was high blood pressure that caused my husband Raymond s kidneys to fail 19 years ago at the age of 29 he developed diabetes in 2002 as a side effect to antirejection medications from a transplant in 2001 The transplanted kidney failed 5 years later and I now administer his hemodialysis treatments from home 5 days a week Our own journey coupled with seeing the impact on so many other families inspired us to found 1in9 a documentary and movement to create hope and change the trajectory of kidney disease We believe that with a progressive and collective movement we can raise public awareness of risk factors promote preventive practices and influence public policy that will spark new solutions in the field of regenerative medicine March is kidney disease Awareness month and 1in9 is hitting the road for an RV tour across the East Coast which will include a stop in New York City to pay tribute to Malik Phife Dawg Taylor on the one year anniversary of his untimely death at the young age of 45 from complications of diabetes and kidney disease Artist Kris Rhymes of KRhymes Artistry in collaboration with 1in9 will showcase the Funky Diabetic a piece from his new Cover to Cover Collection at the tribute event I wanted to bring support to 1in9 through my art and pay tribute to Phife Dawg not just because A Tribe Called Quest is my favorite Rap group but to shine a light of awareness on kidney disease and diabetes Kris Rhymes It s time to bring kidney disease out of the shadows and into the light Who do you know with kidney disease Could it be you By Analyn Scott Founder of 1in9 To learn more and join the challenge to change the trajectory of kidney disease go to www 1in9kidneychallenge com and follow 1in9 on FaceBook Twitter and Instagram under 1in9kidneyChallenge 1in9kidneyChallenge Iam1in9 whoisyour1in9 17
