Grains are creating havoc in our brains. IT ’ S NOT YOUR IMAGINATION!
Something’s just not right: lately you are forgetful, stressed, and tired all of the time. Symptoms can vary from mood swings, to lack of concentration, to feeling chronically tired, and anxious. To top it off, no matter how healthy you try to eat, you still aren’t losing weight. So let’s add frustrated to the list. And you’re finding that all of this is affecting your performance at work, as a parent, and even as a partner/spouse. It’s not your imagination. Grains are behind it all… The grains you consume may have numerous damaging effects on your brain and nervous system, not just your gastrointestinal tract. Wheat, barley, and rye are the main offenders, all sharing the same gliadin proteins. These gliadin proteins are digested into to smaller (4 or 5 long) amino-acid peptides, which are small enough to penetrate the brain and bind to opiate receptors. These peptides, dubbed exorphins or exogenously derived morphine-like compounds, are responsible for various ill-effects on the brain. Other non-wheat grains also have potential brain health implications by creating high blood sugar levels which lead to dementia. Remove grains from your diet and your brain is released from the control of their mind-active components. It is liberating, wonderful, and empowering. Your brain can be restored to its normal alert, energetic, calculating, and creative state. The brain/mind effects of banishing all wheat and grains from you life include: &n...

Authors: Lin L, Xu X, Yu Y, Ye H, He X, Chen S, Chen X, Shao Z, Chen P Abstract Objective: There were some clinical studies on GLP-1R agonist liraglutide therapy for psoriasis patients with type 2 diabetes, but there is a lack of randomized controlled trials and the mechanism of which remains unclear.Method: A total of 25 psoriasis patients with type 2 diabetes were randomized 1: 1 divided into the control group (n = 13) or liraglutide group (n = 12) for 12 weeks. We determined the PASI, the DLQI, histopathology of psoriasis skin, and the expression of IL-17, IL-23, and TNF-α in th...
Authors: Marques E, Paluch Z, Boháč P, Slanař O, Běláček J, Hercogová J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Understanding how different comorbidities and epidemiological factors are related to psoriasis severity can help us estimating patients' clinical outcome. AIM: Establish possible prognostic factors of severe psoriasis. METHODS: Three groups of patients were included: 118 were on topical therapy, 83 used conventional systemic drugs and 112 were treated with biological agents. Based of the fact that patients on topical therapy have a lower grade of disease severity than patients treated syst...
Authors: Lam PH, Hon KL, Leung K, Leong KF, Li CK, Leung TF Abstract BACKGROUND: Atopic eczema (AE) is a common relapsing inflammatory skin disease in children which is often associated with chronicity and poor quality of life. Unlike atopic asthma, control of AE is seldom assessed in therapeutics. AIM: To investigate the utility of a Traffic Light Control (TLC) system as a measurement/assessment of self-perceived eczema control. METHODS: This is a prospectively study of all Chinese children (aged 6 to 18 years old) with eczema attending the paediatric dermatology clinic of a tertiary hospital from Jan to J...

This initiative aims to support the development and testing of systems-level interventions targeting high-risk youth to reduce or prevent suicide and suicidal behavior in these populations. Populations identified with high suicide risk and high unmet service need include but are not limited to: youth in public service systems, racial/ethnic minority youth, sexual and gender minority (SGM) youth, rural youth, and youth with intersectional risk. Relevant settings include but are not limited to: education or training programs, housing programs, juvenile justice, and child welfare.
The primary objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to advance translational research to better understand risk and resilience for suicide in the context of the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) framework and the Positive Valence Systems (PVS) domain.
This FOA seeks to encourage research addressing major gaps identified in the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation statement concerning interventions to prevent perinatal depression.
To solicit pilot effectiveness projects that apply a mechanism-based approach to the development and evaluation of deployment-focused preschool Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) interventions. Relevant interventions could consider the unique challenges associated with treating ADHD symptoms and impairments in children under the age of six Interventions may also focus on preventing or forestalling the emergence of co-occurring disorders or additional ADHD symptoms and impairments that predictably emerge later in development.
