Dishing out more drugs won ’t stop the pain. Doctors need new tools | Ann Robinson
As a GP, I know opioids have their place. But we shouldn ’t be complacent about a US-style crisis happening in BritainGrowing concern about the prescription of drugs that cause dependence has been backed up by a recent report from Public Health England (PHE). The agencydiscovered that in 2017-18, 13% of adults in England received at least one prescription for opioids such as morphine or oxycodone (although this represented a slight downturn in prescribing after a long upward trend). Other drug classes were implicated too, with 25% of adults prescribed one or more of the following drugs: benzodiazepines (such as Valiu...

What is the Dosing of CBD Oil?
Discussion Cannabis sativa makes small fruits which are usually named “seeds” although they are not technically a seed. Hemp oil is derived from the hemp seeds by cold-pressing or other means of macerating or squashing the seeds. Cold pressed oil is high in polyunsaturated fatty acids including various omega-3 and linolenic acids and antioxidants. It is used by some people for its nutritional value and “[a]ccording to an old legend, Buddha (Prince Siddharta Gautama) founder of Buddism, was able to survive eating only one hemp seed each day for six years.” The seeds themselves do not contain any psyc...

Why America Is Failing To Feed Its Aging
Army veteran Eugene Milligan is 75 years old and blind. He uses a wheelchair since losing half his right leg to diabetes and gets dialysis for kidney failure. And he has struggled to get enough to eat. Earlier this year, he ended up in the hospital after burning himself while boiling water for oatmeal. The long stay caused the Memphis vet to fall off a charity’s rolls for home-delivered Meals on Wheels, so he had to rely on others, such as his son, a generous off-duty nurse and a local church to bring him food. “Many times, I’ve felt like I was starving,” he says. “There’s neighbors that...

Researchers Say That Acupressure May Relieve Chronic Back Pain
BOSTON (CBS) – Michigan researchers have found that a traditional Chinese medicine technique may reduce pain in patients with chronic back problems, and it’s not acupuncture. Unlike acupuncture which involves needles, acupressure uses a finger, thumb or device to apply pressure to specific points on the body to treat ailments, including pain. Researchers at the University of Michigan studied 67 volunteers with chronic back pain and found that those who applied acupressure themselves for 27 to 30 minutes a day over six weeks reported less pain and, in some cases, less fatigue. Many people with chronic back pain ...

BOSTON (CBS) – Some good news when it comes to the opioid crisis.

One way that people are first introduced to opioids is after dental procedures and researchers in Michigan say thousands of kids a year could become new chronic opioid users after something as simple as having their wisdom teeth removed. Despite the fact that a combination of ibuprofen and Tylenol can effectively treat pain after a tooth extraction, many dentists still off...
