Love Your Liver And Turn Back The Years
Today, I want to talk to you about how important it is to be nice to your liver – especially if you want to keep your body younger than your years. And I’m not talking about cutting out that nice bottle of Bordeaux you might share with a special dinner companion on a Saturday night or depriving yourself of that fine, 18-year-old single malt you love to savor every now then. Of course, I recommend that you always drink responsibly. But if you really want to look after your liver, my advice is to drop excess fat. In fact, at my wellness clinic, taking good care of your liver by staying lean is one of my key anti-aging strategies. Don’t worry… I’m not getting up on my soapbox to berate you for being victimized by food companies. But I do want to you to understand the importance of keeping yourself trim for the sake of your liver, which will help you live better and keep your body young. Of course, this is the kind of advice you’re unlikely to get from your own doctor, but the patients I see at my clinic are proof of the link between excess fat, a healthy liver and “staying young.” I’ve been proving this crucial link with a new system I devised called “Age Quotient,” or AQ for short. This helps my patients track the real, biological age of their bodies – and it allows them keep improving it over time. As your biological age grows younger, your AQ increases. What I’ve found with my patients is that exce...
This study aimed to assess the prevalence and variables related to perceived stress associated with the COVID-19 pandemic in a sample of Colombian adults using a designed online cross-sectional survey. Adults answered a version of the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS-10) modified for COVID-19 (PSS-10-C), with Cronbach alpha equal to 0.86. In total, 406 individuals aged between 19 and 88 years (M = 43.9; SD = 12.4) agreed to participate in the survey: 61.8% were females, 90.6% had a university degree, 44.1% were health professionals, and 45.7% considered public health policies for preventing the spread of the disease inconsisten...
CONCLUSIONS: Simultaneous CRC and CRLM resections seem to be safe when patients are carefully selected, also considering the risk of recurrence concerning oncologic outcomes. The pre-planning of simultaneous resection is mandatory to plan trocar positioning, procedure sequencing, and patient position. PMID: 32490901 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the in vivo response of photobiomodulation therapy associated with norbixin-based poly(hydroxybutyrate) membrane (PHB) in tenotomized calcaneal tendon. METHODS: Thirty rats were randomly allocated to six groups (n=5 each): LED groups (L1, L2 and L3) and membrane + LED groups (ML1, ML2 and ML3). The right calcaneal tendons of all animals were sectioned transversely and were irradiated with LED daily, one hour after surgery every 24 hours, until the day of euthanasia. At the end of the experiments the tendons were removed for histological analysis. RESULTS: The histological an...
