Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of both men and women in the US. Coronary heart disease kills almost 700,000 people each year. Coronary heart disease occurs when arteries that supply the heart become narrowed and may cause a heart attack. Dr. Dahlman's video describes how coronary heart disease can be reversed or prevented by a healthier diet.

From Michigan - Over 49% of pre-hurricane residents of New Orleans showed symptoms of an anxiety or mood disorder in the months after Hurricane Katrina struck. Most also reported experiencing at least one hurricane-related stressor. Slow government response was cited as a factor which contributed to abnormally high mental illness rates when compared to similar studies conducted after other natural disasters. From Waterloo - Males with a twin sister could be up to ten times more likely than other men to develop anorexia. While most men are at significantly lower risk for anorexia than their female counterparts, this does not hold true for men with a twin sister. The result points to a potential in-utero risk factor for anorexia in pregnancies involving a female child. And finally, from California -- A commonly-prescribed drug for type 2 diabetes could be interfering with new bone formation. Rosiglitazone, also known as Avandia, seems to change the balance of bone-destroying and bone-forming cells in rodents. Earlier this year, the drug was also linked to an increased rate of heart failure. For Insidermedicine in 60, I'm Maria Radina.

https://phoenixvitamins.com/product/best-cholesterol-support/ Cholesterol has become a national obsession! It seems that everyone either has elevated cholesterol or is worried about having elevated cholesterol. As a result there is a great demand to find ways to natural cholesterol lower. Natural cholesterol cures abound, from special diets to supplements and many of them are very effective. In order to determine the most effective natural cholesterol treatments, it is important to understand how the body makes and uses this extremely important substance. As we will soon see, natural cholesterol remedies involve the use of key dietary supplements and increased fiber. The most effective natural cholesterol supplements combine both into one convenient formula for the user. Medicine approaches elevated cholesterol as if it were a disease and attacks it with powerful and potentially dangerous drugs called statins. There are many forms of statin drugs on the market and all have the same dangerous side effects, as we will see soon. For this reason, methods to naturally lower cholesterol have become increasingly popular. To get your bodys natural cholesterol lower, is not that difficult and the best part is that the natural cholesterol supplements pose no threat to your health and have virtually no side effects, even with long term use. Before we can discuss the natural cholesterol cures that are available, it is important to discuss the myths surrounding cholesterol. Cholesterol Myths In an attempt to find a cause for the heart disease epidemic, medical researchers examined the remains of those who had died and discovered that within their arteries, deposits of a yellowish fatty material was lining the arteries, cutting off blood flow. This substance was identified as cholesterol. Hence this natural and essential substance was blamed for causing the heart disease epidemic. Not true! In fact, there is not one article or study in any medical journal in the past 50 years that has ever been able to link cholesterol as the actual cause of heart disease or more specifically atherosclerosis or the narrowing of the arteries, reducing blood flow. Atherosclerosis starts years before cholesterol ever becomes involved. The real cause of atherosclerosis is damage to the inner muscle wall of the artery by chemical compounds known as free radicals. These free radicals attack the muscle cells of the artery wall, altering their DNA structure and cause them to over multiply. This process over time weakens the artery and the body then must place chemical bandages over the area to prevent hemorrhaging. Once this portion of the process has been completed, calcium, which normally floats freely in the blood, begins sticking to these specific sites only. This condition is called calcification of the arteries and is the second phase of atherosclerosis. Cholesterol, also naturally present in the bloodstream, is attracted to the calcium-lined areas of the artery and begins to build up. This is the final stage of atherosclerosis. By the time cholesterol sticks to your arteries, 90% of the disease process is already over. By attacking cholesterol, the actual cause of the problem is never addressed. The relationship between cholesterol and heart disease is weak at best and is only a concern in the final stages of the disease process. The amount of cholesterol is also relatively unimportant as the majority of those who suffer from a heart attack or who need to undergo bypass surgery have normal levels of cholesterol at the time! Your body manufactures the vast majority of cholesterol found internally at any given time. Cholesterol is vital to so many functions within the body that to blame cholesterol and heart disease is absurd. Cholesterol is essential for brain function. The insulation around every nerve in your body is primarily made up of cholesterol, and what your doctor has likely never told you is that total cholesterol levels below 150 increase your risk of a stroke by almost ten times!! Cholesterol is manufactured in the liver. #Cholesterol #HeartDisease #stroke #CholesterolGuidelines

http://www.lasergumdentist.com/ Patient was told by his previous dentist to remove his front teeth. Laser gum therapy was completed. After a week it appears he will be able to keep his teeth. Gum Surgery Los Angeles Dentist Downey Ca This case has been published in the Prestigious Peer reviewed Journal Compendium http://www.compendiumlive.com/article.php?id=2791 More information http://lasergumdentist.com/ http://www.johndds.com/ http://www.lasergumdentist.com/ Periodontal disease according to The Guinness Book of world records is the most common infectious disease affecting mankind. The surgeon General has estimated that 80% of adult Americans have some form of gum disease. Healthcare costs could be reduced by focusing on the mouth. Medical insurance companies are saying we can save 4 to 1. That is, for every dollar invested in dental care they are saving $4 in medical costs. The cost for treating diabetes is around $174 billion in the U.S. annually. Extrapolate what Columbia University and Aetna Medical found in their research that costs for diabetes care could be reduced by as much as 16 percent by treating gum disease. Take into consideration the Surgeon Generals estimate that gum disease affects approximately 80 percent of the U.S. population. Thus the potential savings by treating gum disease are approximately $22 billion. This does not include the savings for cardiovascular disease, a probable savings of 11 percent, or another 9 percent for cerebral vascular disease or stroke. The same Aetna and Columbia University studies found that treating gum disease can reduce preterm low birth-weight babies by 50 percent. Preterm low birth-weight births account for more than 12 percent of all births, $13 billion annually in hospitalizations and uncounted social costs since babies born prematurely often require years of care. The whole total of dental expenditures in the U.S is approximately $75 billion annually. Only 3%, according to Dental Insurance statistics, is spent on periodontal disease. In other words only $2 Billion is spent on gum disease annually. The important thing to take from this is to know your periodontal score. Unfortunately, gum disease does not hurt. When you visit your dentist make sure your gum pockets are being measured. The dentist needs to take six measurements per tooth. This score has been shown to be more important to your general health than your cholesterol level, body mass index, or blood pressure. Remember that your gums should never bleed when you brush and floss thoroughly, no more than your hands should bleed when you wash them. A new breakthrough in the treatment of Gum disease is Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure LANAP. The Laser gum treatment has been found to regenerate the attachment around the tooth. Complementary Evaluation Downey Dentist Laser Gum Treatment also known a s laser gum surgery LANAP, WPT, laser gum therapy, laser periodontics, laser periodontal treatment, laser gingivitis treatment, Annapolis periodontal technique has been proven scientifically to be able to reverse gum disease. Gum disease is classified as Gingivitis, Early, Moderate and Severe Periodontitis. The "laser Gum Treatment" does not require bone substitute materials to be used. These bone substitutes are known as gum bone graft. By avoiding "Bone Grafting" you minimize the risks involved in regenerative periodontal treatment by utilizing laser energy to promote ones own natural healing. Laser Gum Treatment Laser Gum Surgery

http://www.PreOp.com Monitoring and tightly controlling your blood sugar level can significantly reduce the risk of complications due to diabetes and provide you with a higher quality of life. Knowledge of your blood sugar levels at different times of the day is an essential input into your diabetes care plan and allows you and your medical team to work out and modify your plan for medication, diet and exercise. The heart of the system to monitor your blood sugar is the blood glucose meter and the automatic lancing device used to obtain your blood sample. There are many types of glucose meters with varying degrees of sophistication and abilities to store test results. Your doctor or nurse will recommend the type best for you. You will need to be familiar with the manufacturer's instructions for each unit. This program will provide you with general guidelines that apply to all units. The equipment you will need to assemble includes: * the glucose testing meter, * a packet of test strips, * an automatic lancing device, * and facial tissue. The meter will have a display with blood sugar readings are shown, an on/off power button and a slot into which the Test Strips are inserted. In the back of the meter will be a compartment for batteries. The Automatic Lancing Device has three components: the body with a release button, lancet holder and cocking device, the removable end cap and a separate short lancet. The first step is to code the meter to match or calibrate the meter to the reactivity of the Test Strip. This is done by following the manufacturer's instructions and matching a number on the meter's display to a number on the Code Strip or on the test strip package. Coding is done: * whenever a new package of Test Strips is opened * and daily to ensure the meter is coded correctly. In addition, a control test can be run: * if you need to check that the whole system of the meter and the test strip is working correctly * and to practice your good meter techniques. * Follow the manufacturer's instructions, which usually involves testing a control solution of sugar that is provided with the meter. Wash your hands vigorously with soap and warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly with a paper towel. Remove the Test Strip from its individual package. With the meter off, insert the correct end of the test strip into the test slot of the meter, according to the manufacturer's instructions. This usually turns the meter on. Remove the end-cap from the lancing device. Insert a short lancet into the lancet holder according to the manufacturer's instructions. Twist off the protective cap and save it for the disposal of the used lancet. Replace the end-cap. The depth of the puncture depends on the end-cap used. Re-cock the lancing device. Choose your puncture site. The sides of the end segment of the finger are the best sites. Stroke down the finger to push blood toward the puncture site. Place the end-cap firmly against the chosen puncture site on the side of the fingertip. The more pressure you use, the deeper the puncture. Push the lancet release button without moving your finger or the device. After the puncture, remove the lancing device. If a drop of blood does not form on its own, stroke down the finger toward the puncture site without going as far as the site itself. Hold the tip of the test strip in the drop of blood until the meter tells you the test strip is filled, usually by beeping. Remove the test strip from the blood. Put the device and the strip aside until the reading is complete. Wipe the puncture site with a clean, dry facial tissue and use the tissue to hold pressure on the puncture site until the bleeding stops. Remove the end-cap from the lancing device and remove the used lancet. Replace the used lancet back into the protective cap by pushing it into the open end of the cap which is placed on a firm, flat surface like a counter top. Once the blood sugar reading on the meter is complete, use the tissue to grasp the test strip and pull it out of the meter. This usually turns the meter off. Discard the lancet in its protective cover and the used strip into a glass or puncture-proof container with a screw top or a "Sharps" Container purchased from your local pharmacy. Replace the cap on the container. When the container is full, cap it and discard it into the trash. * Clean the lancing device weekly according to the manufacturer's instructions. * Only use a lancet once. * Do not use the same end-cap on another person. * Teach another person to use the whole system so that you have a backup when you need assistance.

Testimonial for Arthritis. Arthritis - a term that means joint inflammation - is the leading cause of physical disability in the United States, affecting about one in every six Americans. While the medical cost annually is estimated to be $51 billion and the total cost is $86 billion, by far the greatest cost is in the pain and suffering which greatly diminishes the quality of life of millions of Americans. Since there are many treatments for arthritis available today, trying to determine the best course of action may be difficult to pinpoint. As food allergies affect almost everyone with arthritis, treatment in these areas should be initiated first. It is most important to note that drugs are not the long-term answer because they do not get to the root cause and can have dangerous side effects.

http://www.PreOp.com Patient ED @ 617-379-1582 INFO Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a biopsy procedure - or lumpectomy. But what does that actually mean? Biopsy is a general term which simply means "the removal of tissue for microscopic examination." Your doctor intends to remove tissue from your body, not because you're necessarily ill, but because biopsy is a very accurate method for analyzing unusual growths or other suspicious tissue. Because it provides such accurate diagnostic information, biopsy is an important diagnostic tool in the fight against cancer. In your case, you have a suspicious lump or other tissue which needs to be examined. It may have been felt by you or your doctor... or spotted using other diagnostic tools such as x-ray. Let's take a moment to look at the reasons why lumps or growths form. The body is made of many different kinds of tissues and those tissues are all subject to change during the course of a normal lifetime. Usually, a thickening or lump turns out to be benign, or harmless, and often requires no treatment. In some cases, lumps are malignant tumors, caused by the growth of cancerous cells. These growths need to be treated as rapidly as possible... In order to learn more about the nature of the suspicious tissue, your doctor would like to surgically remove it.

From Boston - While cutting calories by 30 to 40% has been shown to increase longevity, Harvard researchers may have now found the reason why. Studying the livers of mice who had fasted for a few days, the researchers noted the activation of 2 genes, SIRT3 and SIRT4. These genes influence the mitochondria to become more efficient. The research could lead to a pill that slows aging and prevents ailments such as cataracts, heart disease, and Alzheimer's. From Washington - While cell phones don't raise the risk for brain cancer, they may affect hearing. In a study comparing 100 cell phone users to those who didn't use them, those who used their phones for more than 60 minutes per day for over 4 years had a noticeable loss of hearing at higher frequencies. Signs of damage include warming of the ear or a sense of fullness or ringing. From Rochester - Unfortunately, many who have suffered from a heart attack are not being referred to cardiac rehabilitation, despite the fact that it can lower the chance of death from another heart attack by 25%. Cardiac rehab includes evaluation to identify and modify risk factors, the supervision of exercise, nutritional modification, and counseling. And finally, from Israel - A glass of pinot noir may be just what the doctor ordered for those with type 2 diabetes. Researchers showed that diabetics randomized to drink a 5 oz glass of red wine per day had a 15% reduction in their sugar levels. No effect was noted in the control group.

From Washington - The prevalence of obesity in the US is nearly twice that of European countries, with over 30% of Americans having the condition. The high rate of obesity is believed to cost the US over $100 billion as it contributes to cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. From Wisconsin - A new test may make colonoscopy unnecessary for those being screened for colorectal cancer. The new non-invasive test, known as virtual colonoscopy or CT colonography, is as good as colonoscopy at detecting cancers. The paper is adding to the controversy as to who should be screening for colorectal cancer: gastroenterologists or radiologists. From New York - A 35-year old woman who underwent a bilateral mastectomy for a diagnosis of breast cancer is suing the lab responsible for reading the biopsy. It turns out she never had breast cancer in the first place. The error has been traced back to a technician who is said to have cut corners and is no longer with the lab. And finally, from Ohio - Children and adolescents can get heart attacks. Researchers noted 9 cases in which otherwise-healthy adolescents developed heart attack after noticing chest pain that radiated into the arm or neck. All had a rise in enzymes that confirm the diagnosis. Unlike adults, the episodes were believed to be caused by spasm, as opposed to a blood clot. For Insidermedicine in 60, I'm Dr. Susan Sharma.
