Antibiotics Side Effects on the Mitochondria

Science is just beginning to understand how important your mitochondria are to warding off the diseases of aging. And, as usual, mainstream medicine is lagging way behind. Along with your telomeres, the cellular time keepers at the ends of your chromosomes, your mitochondria are another key component of the anti-aging equation. You see, these tiny organelles in your cells are the power plants that turn fuel into energy for your body. Healthy mitochondria keep you young and energetic.  Research shows that damaged mitochondria can lead to: Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease; Epilepsy, migraines, and nerve pain; Loss of muscle control and balance; Strokes, heart disease, and coronary artery disease; Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia; Blindness; Diabetes; Hepatitis C and cirrhosis.1 Now new research reveals that antibiotics smother your mitochondria. I’ve been warning about the side effects of antibiotics for years. Yes, they’ve saved many lives. But rampant overuse of these drugs has left us with a slew of health problems. Antibiotic Side Effects on The Gut Antibiotics destroy the good bacteria that make up your gut’s flora. They impact digestion, the immune system, and the endocrine system. Now a study in the journal, Cell Reports, has raised the alarm about tetracyclines.2 These drugs are used for bacterial infections. They treat urinary tract infections, acne, malaria, Lyme disease, r...

Carotid stenosis is a major risk factor for stroke and surgical treatment is key in preventing recurrent ischaemic events. Previous randomised trials have demonstrated the net benefit of surgery for significant symptomatic carotid stenosis but, with present day medical treatment, there is limited evidence on the risk of late ipsilateral ischaemic stroke (IS) and its main risk factors.

Patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) often experience intraoperative and postoperative blood pressure lability and postoperative headache. Postoperative headache and hypertension after CEA are thought to increase the risk of developing postoperative cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS). Although fortunately rare, CHS spans a wide spectrum of signs and symptoms, with patients usually presenting with an unrelenting ipsilateral headache. Temporary or permanent neurologic deficit, seizures, intracranial hemorrhage, and, sometimes, death can follow the initial headache 3 to 7  days after discharge.

There is a local ortho group that wants to bring me on, versus going out and hiring someone. We already have a mutual relationship and referral pattern of patients. I like my independence but also like the idea of having strength in numbers. They have one PMR guy that is in the twilight of his career and just wants to do lumbar ESI all day. If I do not join, they will go out and hire someone else. Not a threat, just a fact. They want to address a need in their practice. So my... Read more

Cervical artery dissection is a common cause of stroke in young adults and can lead to significant disability. Clinicians should be able to recognize the clinical presentation and diagnose this condition to prevent cerebral ischemia and its complications. Consider cervical artery dissection in a young adult with new-onset, unilateral head pain with or without neck pain with antecedent neck trauma, with or without neurologic deficits or risk factors for dissection. Early diagnosis can lead to better outcomes but the overall prognosis is good for young adults with cervical artery dissection.

AbstractPurposeEvaluating the current health state in chronic otitis media (COM), audiologic results are complemented by subjective outcomes, such as health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Two disease-specific instruments assessing HRQoL in COM in German-speaking patients exist, i.e., the chronic otitis media outcome test (COMOT-15) and the Zurich chronic middle ear inventory (ZCMEI-21). Since the psychometric properties of these questionnaires in a concurrent application are unknown, the aim of this study was to compare the COMOT-15 and the ZCMEI-21.MethodsHRQoL was assessed in adult COM patients using the COMOT-15 and t...

ConclusionPatients who had OSA had a higher prevalence of stroke compared to non-OSA patients by 16% with almost three times higher odds. The difference was statistically significant in bivariant but not multivariant analysis. The rate of hospitalization, emergency visit, and blood transfusion were not affected by OSA status. Screening for OSA in high-risk patients such as SCD children and early management could prevent the risk of SCD complications.
