UA researchers find physicians' adherence to H. pylori guidelines low
(University of Arizona) It was long thought that gastric ulcers and other digestive woes were brought about by stress. But in 2005, clinical fellow Barry J. Marshall and pathologist J. Robin Warren were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for recognizing the role of Helicobacter pylori in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. Now physicians can point their collective fingers at H. pylori when it comes to a host of gastric maladies in their patients. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Galangal: Boost Your Brain Power and Memory
Of the top 10 causes of death in America, Alzheimer's disease is the only one that can't be prevented, cured or slowed. At least that's what mainstream doctors in the West will tell you… But try telling that to the people of Bali. The galangal root is similar to ginger, but it has a bit more bite. Some people describe it as "piney" or "woodsy." You see, Alzheimer's disease (AD) is extremely rare in Bali. And the majority of people living on Bali who DO have Alzheimer's are expats from the West. Part of the reason why the Balinese don't get AD may lie in one incre...

Feline Pancreatitis
Feline pancreatitis is inflammation of a cat's pancreas that can disrupt its normal functions and cause other symptoms as well. An inflamed pancreas is a serious problem, because the organ serves two vital functions in the body. It produces hormones -- insulin and glucagon -- that balance blood sugar. It also produces digestive enzymes such as amylase, lipase, and proteases, which enable the body to use carbohydrates, fats and proteins for energy. Symptoms of Pancreatitis in Cats In cats with pancreatitis, there are few overt symptoms. The most common signs are lethargy and lack of appetite. Since cats naturally sleep a ...

The War On Bacteria -- Who Are We Really Harming?
This study was not an anomaly. There have been many papers published supporting these same ideas and it is not just confined to antibiotic use. Heartburn medication called Proton pump inhibitors are one of the most over-prescribed drugs today and absolutely wreak havoc on both human health and the health of intestinal bacteria. NSAIDS are another such drug. Of course there are situations where antibiotic use is justified and necessary but I have found the conventional medical community to be guilty of gross overprescription of these drugs. Patients are often given prescriptions for cold and flu when the reality is viral i...

My Favorite Natural Heartburn Remedies
Every time I come back to Africa, I’m reminded just how natural the health care is here. I recently watched one local herbalist cure a patient of chronic heartburn with a tea made from a popular root (more about that soon). Heartburn is a common disorder of the stomach caused by the overproduction of stomach acid. In America, mainstream medicine is likely throwing Big Pharma’s “treatments” at you — like proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs), which block the production of stomach acid. You might know these better as Nexium, Prilosec and Prevacid. But these PPIs have some pretty BIG downsides you&rsquo...

Helicobacter pylori infection leaves a fingerprint in gastric cancer
Several bacterial infections are now suspected to play a role in the development of cancer but for none is the link so conclusively proven as for H. pylori, which can induce chronic gastritis and ulcer disease, and ultimately lead to the development of cancer. After an infection with Helicobacter pylori, gene activity in the gastric cells resembles the activity of cancer cells, scientists report. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Having and Fighting Ebola: Public Health Lessons From a Clinician Turned Patient
While treating patients with Ebola in Guinea, I kept a journal to record my perceived level of risk of being infected with the deadly virus. A friend who'd volunteered previously had told me that such a journal comforted him when he looked back and saw no serious breach of protocol or significant exposure. On a spreadsheet delineating three levels of risk -- minimal, moderate, and high -- I'd been able to check off minimal risk every day after caring for patients. Yet on October 23, 2014, I entered Bellevue Hospital as New York City's first Ebola patient. Though I didn't know it then -- I had no television and was too wea...

What is H. Pylori Infection?
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacteria responsible for many peptic ulcers and many cases of chronic gastritis (inflammation of the stomach). This organism can weaken the protective coating of the stomach and duodenum (first part of the small intestines), allowing damaging digestive juices to irritate their sensitive linings. About half of the world's population is infected with H. pylori.

(University of Veterinary Medicine -- Vienna) Helicobacter pylori is found in the stomach of humans, where it may cause chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers. An international consortium coordinated by Yoshan Moodley at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna has discovered that the Baka pygmies of Cameroon, a community of hunter-gatherers, have a surprisingly low rate of Helicobacter infection. The findings are reported in the online journal PLOS Genetics and cause us to question how the bacteria are maintained in human populations. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

How Common Are Gastric Ulcers?
Discussion The exact cause of gastric and upper intestinal inflammation and ulceration are not entirely understood. Imbalances between irritative factors and mucosal defenses underlie it. Gastric acid production is at adult levels by 3-4 years. Actual ulceration is associated with a lower acid secretion for gastric ulcerations but are increased in duodenal ulcerations in both adults and children. In adults changes to the mucus layer of the stomach and duodenum and bicarbonate secretion play a part in upper GI inflammation and ulcerations. Genetic studies have been linked to differences in both acid production, and mucosal ...
