Yoga Can Naturally Heal Crippling Injuries Without Surgery

When you feel her calming energy, you would never guess Kata went through a crippling car accident that left her in constant pain. At the time, the damage to her neck and spine was so severe, her doctors started preparing her for multiple surgeries. They told her she’d be in a neck brace for the rest of her life. But today, Kata is living pain free. Her spine is long and relaxed, and she has full range of motion in her neck. And she did it without surgery. Instead of going under the knife, Kata turned to yoga. What is yoga? Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines stretching exercises, controlled breathing and relaxation. It can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve heart function. This 5,000-plus-year-old pursuit not only repaired the damage to the curve of her spine and freed her of pain, it changed her life. Within months, Kata, a former accountant, became an optimist again. Yoga also gave her sharper mental focus, the skill to better handle everyday challenges, and the ability to respond to life in “a more joyful way,” as she puts it. Most doctors think of yoga as “light stress relief,” and a way to stay flexible. But yoga not only heals your injuries, it reverses the biological age of your cells, tissues, and organs. Today, I’ll introduce you to the anti-aging powers of yoga, and show you an easy but very effective position you can practice at home right now. East Meets West for a More Energetic Life In her own ...

Authors: Silvagni E, Giollo A, Sakellariou G, Ughi N, D'Amico ME, Scirè CA, Huizinga TWJ Abstract Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) management is driven by evidence, and new 2019 EULAR recommendations help in refining the relevant place of different disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) in treatment schedules. At present, new drugs are in phase of development, mainly Janus Kinase inhibitors (JAKis), however, specific treatment strategies seem to count more than individual DMARDs in terms of treatment responses, given the substantial lack of head-to-head comparisons between specific biological (b) and targe...

Conclusions: While this is a very small sample, asenapine appears to have a beneficial effect on both depression and anxiety in depressed bipolar I patients compared to treatment with placebo. Due to the large fraction of subjects with the short form, the hypothesis that the SF-5HTTR might increase asenapine response could not be adequately tested. PMID: 32214517 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Papachristou SG, Iosifidis E, Sipsas NV, Gamaletsou MN, Walsh TJ, Roilides E Abstract Introduction: Osteoarticular fungal infections (OAFIs) complicate the clinical course of high-risk patients, including immunosuppressed individuals. Their management, however, despite being intricate, is governed by evidence arising from sub-optimal quality research, such as case series. Guidelines are scarce and when present result in recommendations based on low quality evidence. Furthermore, the differences between the management of immunocompromised and immunocompetent patients are not distinct. This is a narrative re...

Authors: Rudy HL, Cho W, Oster BA, Tarpada SP, Moran-Atkin E Abstract Study Design: Retrospective cohort study. Purpose: To determine the effects of massive weight loss on perioperative complications after lumbar fusion surgery (LFS). Overview of Literature: Patients who are obese are more likely to experience low back pain, which would require LFS. Nonetheless, they have a higher risk of perioperative complication development compared with individuals who are not obese. Methods: Patients who underwent LFS at hospitals that participated in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database withi...
