10 Everyday Things That You ’re Doing Wrong
There are many things that we have done every single day since the day that we were born that have become part of the routine. We sleep, eat, drink and poop but we might be doing these routine things the wrong way. Holding a drink When it comes to holding your drink the first thing to remember is that your hands conduct heat and as a result, they may warm up your beverage if you are holding your bottle or glass in the wrong place. It is most natural for us to hold the largest part of the bottle or glass but that is the wrong way to do it. You should hold your bottle by the neck and you should hold your glass by the stem. P...

What Are Lectins? The Health Implications and How to Avoid It
Over the past few years, there has been so much hype and speculation around gluten, with many people considering it the number one gut health enemy. While you could genuinely be having gluten intolerance or any other health condition linked to gluten, sometimes this protein isn’t the real menace. Individuals claiming to have gluten intolerance may actually be suffering from lectin sensitivity.

Frangollo – Spiced Almond & Millet Pudding. Vegan & Gluten Free.
  I’m really excited to share this recipe which I have designed for the Monarch Island Cookbook to celebrate the food of Lanzarote. I’d never heard of Frangollo before, until researching the traditional foods of this beautifully unspoiled island. When I came across it, I knew I had to make a version of it. I am, after all, a sucker for comfort food and this looked mighty cosy. Frangollo is made across the Canary Islands and is traditionally made with millet flour or maize, enriched with butter and eggs and sweetened with hints of citrus and spice. It’s like a thick, creamy semolina pudd...

Speaking at the event, Dr Alan Desmond, Consultant Gastroenterologist at South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, UK, suggested that active Crohn’s Disease (CD) can be successfully reversed by adopting a Whole Food Plant Based Diet (WFPBD). He cited data from two trials which have shown diets like the WFPBD, which restricts animal protein, animal fat, omega-6 PUFAs, dairy, emulsifiers and food additives while providing dietary fibre can bring improvements in people with Crohn’s in just six weeks. Patients in the trials obtained 50% of caloric intake from an enteral formula (an artificial ‘complete nu...

Western diet depletes artery-protecting immune cells
  New research from scientists at the La Jolla Institute For Allergy and Immunology shows how a diet high in fat and cholesterol depletes the ranks of artery-protecting immune cells, turning them into promoters of inflammation, which exacerbate atherosclerotic plaque buildup that occurs in cardiovascular disease. The team has also found that high density lipoproteins (HDL) — more commonly known as “good cholesterol” — counteract this process, helping the protective immune cells maintain their identity and keep arteries clear. The study published March 15, 2018, in the journal Nature Communicat...

What is complete heart block?
An abnormal heart rhythm is a change in either the speed or the pattern of the heartbeat — the heart may beat too slowly, too rapidly or irregularly. When the heart beats too slowly, too little blood is pumped out to the rest of the body. When the heart beats too quickly, it cannot fill completely so the body doesn’t receive the blood volume it needs to function properly. Slow heart rates are called bradycardias. Fast heart rates are called tachycardias. A heart that beats too fast or too slow can cause lightheadedness or dizziness, palpitations (skipping, fluttering or pounding in the chest), fatigue, chest pr...

I was reading some medical records the other day and came upon a condition known as Behcet’s syndrome. It is actually a rare disease, but more frequent and severe in patients from the Eastern Mediterranean and Asia. Inherited (genetic) and environmental factors, such as microbe infections, are suspected to be factors that contribute to the development of Behcet’s. The syndrome is not proven to be contagious.

Conjunctivitis
Pinkeye is another name for conjunctivitis and is a condition that causes inflammation and redness of the membranes inside the eyes. It causes the whites of your eyes to appear reddish or pink. The disease can be caused by a bacterial or viral infection in addition to an allergic reaction. Pinkeye caused by infection is highly contagious. Many children will develop pink eye at a daycare and spread it to others. For this reason, early diagnosis and treatment is extremely important. Pinkeye can affect one or both eyes. Many times it will start in one eye and then spread to the other. The most common symptoms of pink eye are ...

Aquagenic urticaria
Urticaria (hives) is a vascular reaction of the skin marked by the transient appearance of smooth, slightly elevated papules or plaques (wheals) that are erythematous and that are often attended by severe pruritus. Individual lesions resolve without scarring in several hours. Most cases of urticaria are self-limited and of short duration; the eruption rarely lasts more than several days, but it may be recurrent over weeks. Chronic urticaria is defined as urticaria with recurrent episodes lasting longer than 6 weeks. Aquagenic urticaria is an extremely rare form of physical urticaria. It appears in response to any type of w...

Yeast versus fungus
There seems to be a lot of confusion with yeast and fungus. Both fungus and yeast belong to the taxonomic kingdom fungi. Yeast shares some similarity with the mushroom, which is a type of unicellular fungi. Hyphae are a constituent part of fungus. These are tube like structures forming many branches and covering many arenas. The fungus consists of 80,000 known species. A fungus lacks vascular tissue and chlorophyll. Since chlorophyll is not present in it, fungi cannot process their own meals through the process of photosynthesis. Also they lack the presence of vascular tissues and hence they have some limitations in the nu...

Eczema – what you need to know
I had the weirdest rash on my legs and I was afraid it could be an autoimmune disease like lupus or possibly psoriasis. I went to the dermatologist and found out that it was a very common rash which was eczema. Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that makes your skin red and itchy. It’s common in children but can occur at any age. Atopic dermatitis is long lasting (chronic) and tends to flare periodically and then subside. No cure has been found for atopic dermatitis, but treatments and self-care measures can relieve itching and prevent new outbreaks. For example, it helps to avoid harsh soaps and other irritan...

Diverticulosis is a condition that describes small pouches in the wall of the digestive tract that occur when the inner layer of the digestive tract bulges through weak spots in the outer layer. When these diverticula become inflamed, that is called diverticulitis. Diagnosis of diverticulosis/diverticulitis is made over several methods, including a physical exam which includes a digital rectal examination, blood tests, x-rays or CT scans of organs in the abdomen, a colonoscopy or a flexible sigmoidoscopy. Treatment for diverticulosis includes a diet high in fiber, fiber supplementation if needed, plenty of fluids and exerc...

There are seven cervical vertebrae in the neck that support your head and connect it to the shoulders and body. A fracture (break or crack) in one of the cervical vertebrae is called a cervical fracture or sometimes, a broken neck. A broken neck is defined as a fracture in one or more of the seven vertebrae that make up the neck. Most people think a broken neck is a catastrophic injury resulting in paralysis.

Cpr saves lives!
Years ago, not too long after nursing school, I was in the mall and a gentleman in front of me suddenly collapsed on the escalator. I knew what to do, but I had never done CPR before in real life. We had practiced numerous times in school and even took a course to be sure that we all knew basic life support. CPR, also referred to as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack. I was successful in saving the man’s life; continuous CPR until help arrived. Back in those days, we did the chest compressions along with the breathing for the patient, but that h...

The main symptom is a rash with numerous small bruises, which have a raised appearance over the legs or buttocks. Although HSP can affect people at any age, most cases occur in children between the ages of 2 and 11. It is more common in boys than girls. Adults with HSP are more likely to have more severe disease compared to children. HSP ...
