Stop Your Body Attacking Itself
Modern medicine has no cure for autoimmune diseases — and, sadly, most doctors don’t understand them. I’m talking about disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis (MS) and more. In all, there are about 80 autoimmune diseases affecting organs throughout the body. They occur when your own immune system becomes overactive and attacks your body instead of diseases and foreign invaders. The standard mainstream treatment for most autoimmune disorders relies on Big Pharma drugs that cover up symptoms or suppress your immune system, and make you vulnerable to life-threatening infections, like pneumonia and colitis. Nature has a better solution… Exciting new research reveals that a single molecule has shown hope in “reversing” autoimmunity. It’s called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) — and it’s completely natural. NAD+ is found in every cell in your body. It’s important because it allows the transfer of energy from the foods you eat to power your body’s vital cellular functions.1 In fact, NAD+ is vital for every process in the human body. It affects metabolism, hormone regulation, and immune system function. It also helps with DNA repair. And Harvard researchers recently discovered that NAD+ can fine-tune your overactive immune system.2 They tested NAD+ in mice with an autoimmune condition similar to MS, which causes n...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health)—Lower doses of cannabidiol (CBD) failed to provide any meaningful reduction in pain when added to other analgesic therapy in patients with hand osteoarthritis (OA) or psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in a randomized, placebo-controlled study from Denmark.1 Writing in the journal, Pain, Jonathan Vela, MD, and colleagues of Aalborg University note that CBD...

ConclusionsDorsal urethral diverticulum in women, particularly when very proximal, can present a diagnostic and surgical challenge for reconstructive pelvic surgeons. The robotic approach to urethral diverticulectomy is feasible for a proximal dorsal urethral diverticulum which lies cephalad to the pubic symphysis. This or other laparoscopic applications may also be considered as an adjunct to the standard vaginal approach for complex urethral diverticuli with a proximal dorsal component.
Dr. Nkengasong will be the first person of African origin to oversee the U.S. government program combating H.I.V., which has ravaged the continent.
ConclusionThe anticoagulant effect of statin initiation in patients treated with VKA is likely to be of limited clinical relevance but should be evaluated individually.
ConclusionsLD-RT is not only an encouraging option for COVID-19 pneumonia patients, but a convenient and feasible procedure if performed in a coordinated way by reducing procedure times.
Among women with a history of gestational diabetes, alcohol intake of half a drink to one drink daily was associated with a 55% lower risk for subsequent type 2 diabetes, a study shows.Medscape Medical News
DIABETES remains one of the unmet challenges of the 21st century. Characterising the early stages of the condition, however, could potentially help dodge a host of complications further down the line. One sign on the neck could warn levels are out of control.
