Botox and Dystonia
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Long before it wiped out worry lines and age wrinkles, Botox was originally created to stop muscle spasms in the eye. Besides its fountain-of-youth qualities, it’s being used to relieve exhausting and sometimes debilitating effects of a neurological disorder called dystonia.

The real story behind the Amazing Curb Climber
I want to be an author or librarian when I grow up. I like to read all kinds of books — fiction and non-fiction and fairy tales. I want to write fairy tale books for children and young adults. You can imagine I love the library, but going to the library can be tough for me. I have cerebral palsy, which means I don’t get around as well as some other kids. I rely on a walker for support. In some places, like the library in my town, the ramps are far away from handicap parking and the entrance to the building. It would be SO much easier if my walker was more like an all-terrain vehicle and could go over curbs or s...

Emotions in the age of Botox
(International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA)) Botulin injections in the facial muscles, which relax expression lines and make one's skin appear younger as a result of a mild paralysis, have another, not easily predictable effect: they undermine the ability to understand the facial expressions of other people. This consequence, as SISSA scientists explain in a new research study, depends on a temporary block of proprioceptive feedback, a process that helps us understand other people's emotions by reproducing them on our own bodies.

How to Take a Holistic Approach to Health
So much of American medicine focuses on treating the illness, rather than the whole person. Oftentimes, it seems easier to throw medicine at a cough or a cold, without exploring further to make sure the cough isn't a result of a chronic post-nasal drip because of allergy or sinus issues. If you're tired of treating symptoms to make a condition better, rather than treating the condition as part of your whole body, you're not alone. The latest data from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) shows 4 of 10 adults and 1 in nine children are using some form of complementary medicine. This is not t...

A Look at Chronic Disease
Our first challenge is to obtain a suitable definition of the term "chronic disease." The World Health Organization asserts that the term is synonymous with "noncommunicable diseases," noting that they are of long duration and generally slow progression. WHO further identifies the four main types as cardiovascular diseases; cancers; chronic respiratory diseases; and diabetes. Given this roster, it is hardly surprising that chronic disease is the leading cause of mortality worldwide -- representing 60 percent of all deaths. The CDC's list is slightly different, and includes obesity and arthritis. Accord...
