Rebecca’s journey to health and youthfulness
Rebecca shared her photos and experience living the Wheat Belly lifestyle: “Eliminating wheat has made such a huge difference in my health and, surprisingly, my appearance. I am 42 and have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I’m also a single mom of four and was told that it was ‘normal’ for me to be tired. But I was miserable. I was so tired it hurt despite having thyroid levels that were in the normal range. I also had brain ‘fog,’ anxiety, depression, and trouble sleeping. Doctor after doctor kept prescribing me more medicine: medicine for my mood, medicine to help me sleep. And despite all that, I still felt terrible and my symptoms continued. “I finally found a doctor who switched me to Armour thyroid, educated me on leaky gut syndrome, and developed a diet for me. One component was eliminating wheat. Since his recommendation, I have bought your book and cookbook. I expected to have fewer gastrointestinal issues. I never expected, however, to have less brain fog, more energy, and less anxiety/depression. Moreover, I frequently hear comments about my face and eyes being less puffy. I never knew that was related to wheat inflammation. Since all the changes – I have been able to stop my antidepressants, sleep medication, and lower my ADHD medication. I have lost 22 pounds and I feel like I’m slowly getting my life back. Thank you. “The pictures show the difference in my face over the past few months. I didn’t ev...

For most of us, springtime marks the return of life to a dreary landscape, bringing birdsong, trees in bud, and daffodils in bloom. But if you work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the coming of spring means the return of nasty diseases spread by ticks and mosquitoes. The killjoys at CDC celebrated the end of winter with a bummer of a paper showing that infections spread by ticks doubled in the United States from 2004 to 2016. (Tick populations have exploded in recent decades, perhaps due to climate change and loss of biodiversity.) Lyme disease The most common infection spread by ticks in the US i...
This article reports a retrospective case series of five patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with prolonged vaso-occlusive episodes (VOEs). Patients were treated with a continuous-infusion of low-dose ketamine (up to 5 µg/kg/min) after insufficient pain control with opioid analgesic therapy. Outcomes studied included impact on opioid analgesic use, a description of ketamine dosing strategy, and an analysis of adverse events due to opioid or ketamine analgesia. Descriptive statistics are provided. During ketamine infusion, patients experienced a lower reported pain score (mean numeric rating scale ...
Unrelieved pain caused by invasive procedures in early life is associated with detrimental outcomes in all major organ systems and has lasting implications for impairment of biobehavioural and neurodevelopment outcomes in neonatal period and later life.1 2 However, 40% –90% of infants still do not receive effective pain-relieving interventions.3 4 Non-pharmacological interventions, especially those incorporating …
ARTHRITIS pain affects about 10 million people in the UK, and symptoms include joint pain and inflammation. Cutting back on this food ingredient in your diet could lower your risk of arthritis signs.
In conclusion, poorer task performance (especially inattention) and neurophysiological results in ADHD demonstrate a possible impairment in the interconnection of the association cortices in the parietal and temporal lobes and the prefrontal cortex. Also, the motor control problems in ADHD may arise from neural deficits in the frontoparietal and occipitoparietal systems and other brain structures such as cerebellum.

In conclusion, current evidences suggest that CBD has the ability to reduce psychotic, anxiety and withdrawal symptoms by means of several hypothesised pharmacological properties. However, further studies should include larger randomised controlled samples and investigate the impact of CBD on biological measures in order to correlate CBD's clinical effects to potential modifications of neurotransmitters signalling and structural and functional cerebral changes.

CONCLUSIONS: Most studies examined occupational PMIEs in military samples and additional studies investigating the effect of PMIEs on civilians are needed. Given the limited number of high-quality studies available, only tentative conclusions about the association between exposure to PMIEs and mental health disorders can be made.Declaration of interestNone.

Authors: Das-Munshi J, Thornicroft G Abstract SummaryIn this issue, Lorant et al. confirm a social gradient in risk of suicide, across 15 European countries, over a period of marked social change. Understanding contextual and life-course factors, and acknowledging under-funding for mental health and failures to implement national mental health policies, may provide the reasons for these disparities.Declaration of interestNone. PMID: 29786494 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: The World Health Organization (WHO) plan for 'Fair opportunity of mental wellbeing' is not likely to be met.Declaration of interestNone. PMID: 29786492 [PubMed - in process]
