Undoctored: Health Should Be (Almost) Free
Follow the current debate on “healthcare reform”–which has NOTHING to do with healthcare reform, but healthcare insurance reform, by the way–and you will hear comments about the escalating and uncontrolled cost of healthcare and how people need access to it. What you will NOT hear is that fact that, because the healthcare system fails to deliver genuine health, real health is actually quite easy, straightforward, and inexpensive–nearly free. We achieve a life of being Undoctored, not becoming a profit source for the healthcare industry, not being subjected to the predatory practices of Big Pharma and the medical device industries, by adopting a handful of simple practices that make, for example, type 2 diabetes or many autoimmune conditions just a distant, unpleasant memory. Let me be absolutely clear: Undoctored is NOT about diagnosing and treating your own rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia. It is about correcting the factors that are prevalent in modern life that allow such conditions to emerge–a big difference. Correct these factors–regardless of whether the starting label was irritable bowel syndrome, seborrhea, or depression–and the overwhelming likelihood is that you will no longer have these conditions within days to weeks (longer with autoimmune conditions). It means being freed of having to take three drugs for type 2 diabetes, a drug for acid reflux, a drug for “high cholesterol” (a semi-fictitious di...
ConclusionsBleeding requiring transfusion is an under-reported complication of hemorrhoids. Increased recognition could lead to expeditious surgical treatment and less costly diagnostic workup.
CONCLUSION: Hypervitaminosis B6 remains a possible cause of peripheral neuropathy and it may be caused by self-administration of over-the-counter vitamin-containing drugs. PMID: 31796339 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The analysis of the presence of 5T polymporphism in CBAVD patients may add information when predicting the outcome of assisted reproductive techniques. PMID: 31797807 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Park MG, Cho MC, Cho SY, Lee JW Abstract OBJECTIVES: To compare the antibiotic susceptibility of Escherichia coli (E. coli) between community- acquired acute bacterial prostatitis (CA-ABP) and ABP following transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (Bx-ABP). METHODS: A total of 4,383 patients underwent prostate biopsy from January 2005 to June 2014. Among these patients, 34 had Bx-ABP; of which 22 patients had E. coli identified in their urine or blood culture. E. coli was also identified in 91 out of 209 patients with CA-ABP in urine or blood culture. We investigated patient and microbiological ch...
CONCLUSION: Remote ischemic preconditioning did not modify irisin or troponin I expression, independent of the time of collection. PMID: 31799981 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: In this group of peritoneal dialysis patients, cystatin C did not correlate with the metabolic or inflammatory status, nor cardiovascular disease, after adjustment for residual renal function. PMID: 31799980 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Abstract For successful infection, viruses must recognize their respective host cells. A common mechanism of host recognition by viruses is to utilize a portion of the host cell as a receptor. Bacteriophage Sf6, which infects Shigella flexneri, uses lipopolysaccharide as a primary receptor and then requires interaction with a secondary receptor, a role that can be fulfilled by either outer membrane proteins (Omp) A or C. Our previous work showed that specific residues in the loops of OmpA mediate Sf6 infection. To better understand Sf6 interactions with OmpA loop variants, we determined the kinetics of these inter...

[From Claude Bernard to Telémaco Battistini: experimental medicine in the birth of the Scientific Journal of the Peruvian National Institute of Health]. Rev Peru Med Exp Salud Publica. 2019 Jul-Sep;36(3):530-534 Authors: Romaní F Abstract The Peruvian Journal of Experimental Medicine and Public Health (RPMESP) was first published in 1942 under the name Journal of Experimental Medicine. Since then, it has been the official scientific dissemination vehicle of the Peruvian National Institute of Health, which was founded in 1936. Telémaco Battistini Sánchez was directly involved...
