This study is the first to provide a direct link between this inflammation and plaque development - by way of IFITM3. Scientists know that the production of IFITM3 starts in response to activation of the immune system by invading viruses and bacteria. These observations, combined with the new findings that IFITM3 directly contributes to plaque formation, suggest that viral and bacterial infections could increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease development. Indeed, researchers found that the level of IFITM3 in human brain samples correlated with levels of certain viral infections as well as with gamma-secretase activ...

The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of physical activity and mortality in people with selected non-communicable diseases (NCDs). We aimed to define the dose-response relationship between post-diagnosis physical activity and mortality rates for nine NCDs with a high global burden of disease, including low back pain, type 2 diabetes (T2D), osteoarthritis, depressive disorder, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), breast cancer, lung cancer, stroke, and ischemic heart disease (IHD). In total, 28 studies were included in the meta-analysis: 12 for breast ...

CONCLUSIONS: Qigong research publications have been increasing gradually. Reports on study types, participants, Qigong Intervention, and outcomes are diverse and inconsistent. There is an urgent need to develop a set of reporting standards for various interventions of Qigong. Further trials of high methodological quality with sufficient sample size and real world studies are needed to verify the effects of Qigong in health and disease management.

Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...

Listen to L Susan Wieland of the  Cochrane Complementary Medicine Field talk toDr. Mark Porter on Inside Health about Cochrane evidence on Yoga (start at 23 minutes). Yoga originated thousands of years ago in India as an integrated physical, mental, and spiritual practice based on ancient Vedic philosophy, and is connected to Ayurveda, the system of traditional Indian medicine.

People who practice yoga claim it leads to a state of physical health, relaxation, happiness, peace, and tranquility.Some evidence shows that yoga can lower stress, increase strength, and lessen lower back pain, while providing exercise. And according to a report from the National Institutes of Health, there is also some evidence to suggest yoga may be helpful when used alongside conventional medical treatment to help relieve some of the symptoms linked to ca...

By STEVE FINDLAY Earlier this month the Center for Public Integrity (CPI) published a sharp-edged piece on PCORI—the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute.  The piece raised some salient issues and it’s timely to take stock of PCORI at the half way point of its authorized funding.  (Unless renewed, PCORI sunsets in 2019.)  The Affordable Care Act created PCORI as an independent nonprofit (non-government) entity.  But PCORI’s funding and structure makes it more or less quasi-government.  It gets its money from the Medicare trust fund, treasury general funds, and a tax on pr...

Too many doctors refuse to think outside the narrow confines of the mainstream medical establishment – especially when it comes to chronic back pain. Back pain is one of the most common reasons Americans go to the doctor, which explains why it’s also one of America’s biggest businesses. But I never cease to be astounded when patients come to my wellness clinic with back pain and tell me they’ve already had a barrage of dangerous Big Pharma prescriptions pushed at them. These drugs include highly addictive opiates like Vicodin, Percocet and OxyContin. Meanwhile, big bucks are also made when doctors p...
