The Sweet Way to Heal Your Wounds

We enjoy outdoor activities. My family will be coming over this year and I will fire up the grill for a delicious BBQ grass-fed beef. We’ll play games like badminton and horseshoes. Now while these games can be fun, they can lead to cuts and bruises. I want to aim you with an unconventional solution for those wounds.  For years now, sugar’s been a dirty word. It’s been blamed for everything from obesity, heart disease and diabetes to tooth decay and acne. But there’s something they don’t know.  Sugar’s better for you than all those artificial sweeteners and substitutes out there today… especially the ones you’ll find in so-called “diet” products. In one study of nearly 2,600 people, those who drank diet sodas had a 47% higher body mass index (BMI) than those who didn’t, and their risk of obesity was doubled.1 I’m always suspicious of things that aren’t natural. But there’s another reason you should keep sugar on your shelf. Did you know that sugar can heal your cuts, scrapes, burns and even large wounds without leaving a scar? It kills germs and repairs tissue better than any antiseptic or disinfectant on the market.2 Long before all these Johnny-Come-Lately naysayers started telling you how bad it was for you, sugar was valued as an antiseptic. For more than 4,000 years, since ancient Egyptian times, people have known about sugar’s miraculous properties. But it fell out o...

In conclusion, a debate exists on whether aging is a disease in itself. Some authors suggest that physiological aging (or senescence) is not really distinguishable from pathology, while others argue that aging is different from age-related diseases and other pathologies. It is interesting to stress that the answer to this question has important theoretical and practical consequences, taking into account that various strategies capable of setting back the aging clock are emerging. The most relevant consequence is that, if we agree that aging is equal to disease, all human beings have to be considered as patients to be treat...

DISCUSSION: Five studies met the inclusion criteria and were included in the systematic review. The average Jadad score was 1, the average level of evidence 3. In two studies, infection and revision occured more often in obese patients. Patients with morbid obesity had a higher risk of wound revision and periprosthetic joint infections. Three studies showed that obese patients had significantly lower scores for clinical outcome measures in function and pain. The legal aspect was not discussed in any of the five studies. Overall, published data are sparse and very heterogeneous. Therefore comparing these five studies is dif...

Authors: Somfai GM, Gerding H, DeBuc DC Abstract Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the leading causes of vision loss globally with a severe burden on all societies due to its high treatment and rehabilitation costs. The early diagnosis of DR may provide preventive steps (including retinal laser therapy and tight carbohydrate, blood pressure, and cholesterol control) that could in turn help to avoid progression of the pathology with the resultant vision loss. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables the in vivo structural imaging of the retina, providing both qualitative (structure) and quantitative (thickness) ...

Roughly half of patients don ’ t take their high blood pressure medicine as they should, even though heart disease is the leading cause of death in America. Now, a drug test can flag whether a patient is taking the prescribed medication and is meant to spark a more truthful conversation between patient and doctor.Kaiser Health News
