Beans, Beans, The Magical Food

It was discovered that my eight-year-old daughter is full of poop. Literally, full of poop. At a check-up appointment the doctor discovered that she doesn't empty everything and stool is sitting inside her little body that is causing problems. Shortly after this revelation I too went to the doctor. After x-rays were run, I was told I suffer from "chronic constipation" and was also full of crap. Yep. I only poop about every three to four days. While I can openly talk and write about pooping, I have an issue with actually going number two in front of people. Anxiety sets in if I have to go in public or, heaven forbid, at a friend's house, even worse, my boyfriend's house. My daughter and I were both told we have to up the fiber to increase our trips to the bathroom. I admit I've always been lucky and eaten pretty much whatever I want. In an effort to keep things balanced I try to put a protein, starch and vegetable on the plate at dinner, but am clueless as far as what has higher levels of fiber. Bran muffins? Broccoli? Beans? My daughter's go-to is mac and cheese so bran, broccoli and beans probably aren't going to go get a thumbs up. As I was trying to come up with innovative ways to increase our fiber intake, my new friend Kim sent me some samples from TOLERANT foods. She assured me they were packed full of protein, low sodium and ta-da! Fiber! Intrigued I looked things over. TOLERANT apparently turns one-ingredient legumes (that means beans) into the ...

ConclusionET-PD and ET-plus (PK) can be clinically difficult to differentiate  as they have overlapping motor and non-motor features.Beta-blocker use did not predict development of ET-PD or ET-plus (PK); however, anosmia and constipation may be helpful non-motor distinguishing features. DAT scans and levodopa trials may be valuable in clarifying the diagnoses.

Abstract Historically, the use of colonic irrigation or transanal irrigation (TAI) has been viewed as an alternative therapy for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions not relating to bowel dysfunction, including nausea, fatigue, depression, headache, anxiety and rheumatism. However, these days it is viewed as an effective treatment in individuals who may present with bowel dysfunction and related symptoms of constipation and faecal incontinence.

Authors: Kim KH, Seo HJ, Abdi S, Huh B Abstract From the perspective of the definition of pain, pain can be divided into emotional and sensory components, which originate from potential and actual tissue damage, respectively. The pharmacologic treatment of the emotional pain component includes antianxiety drugs, antidepressants, and antipsychotics. The anti-anxiety drugs have anti-anxious, sedative, and somnolent effects. The antipsychotics are effective in patients with positive symptoms of psychosis. On the other hand, the sensory pain component can be divided into nociceptive and neuropathic pain. Non-steroidal ...

SummaryFunctional constipation (FC) is a chronic disease that significantly affects the life quality of patients. Acupuncture has been used for the treatment of FC for many years, but its effectiveness has not been scientifically assessed. The present study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of electro-acupuncture (EA) in relieving the symptoms, mental states and quality of life (QOL) of FC patients. A total of 96 FC patients were randomly allocated into EA, mosapride&sham EA group (MS) and mosapride control group (MC). In the EA group, patients were treated with 16 sessions of needling at Quchi (LI11) and Shangjuxu (ST37)...

Therapeutic yoga (TY) gently supports the body in therapeutic positions and may include relaxation breathing, comforting touch, and mindfulness meditation (MM). Evidence suggests that yoga, relaxation, and MM can help reduce anxiety, pain, nausea, and constipation. We piloted a feasibility project at a large New York teaching hospital to expand an established palliative care TY/MM program to include supportive cardiology patients. These are patients with advanced heart failure who are often awaiting (or have received) cardiac transplant, ventricular assistive devices, or total artificial heart support.
