The Wheat Belly Cruise 2016

The Wheat Belly Caribbean Cruise for 2016 sets sail December 4th through 11th. The time to sign up is now! The cruise includes some glorious Caribbean ports of call, including St. Thomas and St. Maarten. Here is a photo of St. Thomas: There is no shortage of unique eating opportunities here with numerous specialty restaurants. I found the chefs and waitstaff on the Celebrity Silhouette exceptionally accommodating to our dietary needs. This ship is a floating city with numerous swimming pools, walking track, huge exercise facility, cafes, bars, and plenty of other activities. The 2015 Wheat Belly Cruise was a blast and 2016 should also be a lot of fun with plenty of head-on Wheat Belly discussions. For 2016, we are going to conduct a similar program to the 2015 cruise that runs through the history of wheat and grain consumption a la Wheat Belly, the original book; the Wheat Belly Total Health concepts that maximize your chances of reversing numerous health conditions and achieving the weight loss you desire; and Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox to show you the ABCs of following this lifestyle as quickly and assuredly as possible. We are going to add cooking demonstrations and other unique content not covered last year. In 2015, Wheat Belly Facebook regular, Betty (Elizabeth) Klub, fearlessly rode the zip-line over the ocean: There’ll be plenty more opportunity for fun and excitement on this coming cruise!

BackgroundBased on 122 cases reported in China, data mining indicated that Sini Powder (SNP) and the Zuojin Pill (ZJP) are both widely used as the basic recipe for treating Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).ObjectivesTo evaluate the intervention effects of Sini Zuojin Decoction (SNZJD) in patients with GERD.MethodsA comprehensive collection of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) using SNZJD in patients with GERD that were published in domestic and foreign journals was made by computer retrieval. RevMan 5.3 software was used for meta-analysis and bias risk assessment, Stata 14.0 software was used for sensitivity analys...

Uterine fibroids affect up to 80% of reproductive-aged women. Although many women are asymptomatic, fibroids can cause pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, anemia, urinary frequency, infertility, and adverse pregnancy outcomes that can impair quality of life. Fifty percent of women with symptomatic fibroids report a detrimental impact on their mental and physical health (1). Fibroids appear to have a greater impact on quality of life than other chronic conditions, including asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (2).

Abstract Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 1 (TRPV1) plays an important role in pain and inflammatory responses. Previous studies have shown that the expression of TRPV1 increases in the sensory neurons of the esophagus during the development of gastroesophageal reflux disease and esophagitis, but the response of TRPV1 in esophageal epithelial cells (EECs), which directly confront the refluxed acid, is still unknown. Here, we found that acid reflux triggered esophageal damage, which was accompanied by increased expression of TRPV1 in EECs and TRPV1 channel activity in these cells. Furt...

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-3402437 Introduction Current practice guidelines in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) often require invasive diagnostic testing. Objective The aim of the present study was to evaluate the significance of extra-esophageal symptoms and reliability of a screening risk score that is simple to use. Methods A longitudinal retrospective single-institution cohort study. Setting: A university clinical hospital tertiary referral center. The present study enrolled pediatric patients with symptoms suggestive of GERD: epigastric pain, occasional nausea, regurgit...

Authors: Meuret AE, Tunnell N, Roque A Abstract Anxiety disorders are debilitating psychological disorders characterized by a wide range of cognitive and somatic symptoms. Anxiety sufferers have a higher lifetime prevalence of various medical problems. Chronic medical conditions furthermore increase the likelihood of psychiatric disorders and overall dysfunction. Lifetime rates of cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and other medical problems are disproportionately high in anxiety and panic/fear sufferers. The heightened comorbidity is not surprising as many symptoms of anxiety and panic/fear mimic sympt...

By ANISH KOKA, MD Mr. Smith has a problem.  He can’t see.  Even this cardiologist knows why.  The not so subtle evidence lies in the cloudy lens in front of his pupils.  He is afflicted with cataracts that obstruct his vision to the point he can’t really do his job refurbishing antique furniture safely.  His other problem is that he hates doctors. He hasn’t had reason to see one for more than a decade.  He’s 68, takes no medications, smokes a pack of cigarettes a day, and is a master of one word answers. He’s in my office because he needs a medical eval...

AbstractPurpose of reviewHigh resolution esophageal manometry (HRM) has expanded understanding of esophageal motor function. The Chicago Classification scheme has allowed systematic categorization of the myriad of manometric parameters identified during HRM. Multichannel intraluminal impedance pH has enhanced ambulatory reflux monitoring through complete assessment of esophageal content transit. However, the clinical implications of identified minor esophageal functional disorders remain unclear.Recent findingsEsophagogastric junction outlet obstruction is defined by esophagogastric junction obstruction with preserved peri...

By HANS DUVEFELT, MD Many patients make this or similar requests, especially in January it seems. This phenomenon has its roots in two things. The first is the common misconception that random blood test abnormalities are more likely early warning signs of disease than statistical or biochemical aberrances and false alarms. The other is the perverse policy of many insurance companies to cover physicals and screening tests with zero copay but to apply deductibles and copays for people who need tests or services because they are sick. It is crazy to financially penalize a person with chest pain for going to the ...

A former resident texted me this ECG, done for epigastric pain in an 18 year old.  The pain resolved immediately with treatment for acid reflux, and in the clinician's opinion was clearly GI in origin, but he wanted to know what the strange waves in the QRS were:See the unusual notching in II, III, aVF, and V2-V4.I had no idea what they were.  They reminded me of theDelayed Activation Wave associated with circumflex acute MI.See this case: https://hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com/2018/05/is-there-delayed-activation-wave.html.But they are clearly different from this.I put it on Facebook EKG club and this is the ...

Abstract CASE PRESENTATION: A 64-year-old man presented for consideration for lung transplant. He had a history of previous tobacco use, OSA on CPAP therapy, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. He worked as a design engineer. The patient had a 4-year history of dyspnea on exertion, followed with periodic CT scan of the chest. Nine months prior to his evaluation for lung transplant, the patient developed worsening of dyspnea, dry cough, poor appetite, and weight loss. At times, the cough was violent and associated with chest pressure. He was prescribed systemic corticosteroids and antibiotics without improvement. ...
