Jennifer overcoming the mental health impairment of grains
You may remember Jennifer from her story describing her first 3 weeks on the Wheat Belly lifestyle: http://www.wheatbellyblog.com/2015/06/wheat-and-grains-make-you-sick/ Jennifer now provides us with an update on her progress: “The difference 9 months makes. The top two are from last year. The bottom two are 4 weeks ago and 2 weeks ago. I wanted to give you an update. “I am still dealing with some underlying health issues, however doing much better. I no longer have to take a slew of prescriptions –no Symbicort, rarely have to take nasal allergy spray or Zyrtek, have completely titrated myself off of psych meds (MDs had me on 5 or 6 psych meds for a decade, rather than checking my thyroid and checking underlying health issues that I discovered on my own). “I now only take one script and that is for hypothyroidism (I suspect Hashimoto’s, as it runs in the family)–levothyroxine. I am by no means completely healed BUT I have hope and know I am on the healing path. It is nice to no longer be shackled to my prescription medicine cabinet as it was HUGE. When I started solving gut issues and thyroid issues, my mood has become so much more stable. Along with the thyroid hormone, I supplement with magnesium/potassium, selenium, iodine and have been trying ashwangandha for a bit more energy and mood stability.” Jennifer’s experience highlights an important issue: the improvements in mental health with wheat/grain elimination and with ...

AbstractPatient expectations of the scar after Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) are often not realistic, leading to subsequent psychosocial sequelae such as anxiety, depression, and avoidance of social situations. When patient expectations are not met, this may also contribute to a decrease in patient satisfaction after surgery. Therefore, altering expectation levels may change patient satisfaction and psychosocial distress levels after surgery. To assess whether patient satisfaction improves in patients after MMS when patients view the surgical defect prior to reconstruction. Patients undergoing facial MMS between December...
“As a mother, a physician, and an educator, I refuse to accept this as normal. It is not! What should we tell the parents of these young physicians? How do we explain to them that their dream of being a doctor became a nightmare with a tragic ending? What do we tell their children whenRead more …Physician suicide: Where are the leaders?

ConclusionParental dispositional mindfulness is associated with better well-being in parents of children with psoriasis or eczema, and their children. Mindfulness-based interventions for parents may be beneficial for improving well-being in both children with skin conditions and their parents.Trial Registration:https://aspredicted.org/xf429.pdf (see Supplementary MaterialsA).
ConclusionsMBIs may help adolescents with behavior disorders at the attentional level. Further research is needed to determine the potential benefits of mindfulness on externalizing and internalizing symptoms in this population.
ConclusionsIndividuals who have higher levels of mindfulness and those with greater life satisfaction experience significantly less depression, anxiety, and stress over time, during both uncertain and emergency conditions such as during the threat of COVID-19. The finding of anxiety and stress reduction during lockdown may be specific to New Zealand, as conditions differ in many ways from those in other countries. Preventative measures which increase mindfulness and satisfaction with life could help alleviate depression, anxiety, and stress during uncertain and emergency conditions.
ConclusionsIdentifying the mechanisms by which emotional insecurity is associated with adolescent mental health problems over time has potential value for prevention and intervention.
