Can You Think Yourself Into A Different Person?
For years she had tried to be the perfect wife and mother but now, divorced, with two sons, having gone through another break-up and in despair about her future, she felt as if she’d failed at it all, and she was tired of it. On 6 June 2007 Debbie Hampton, of Greensboro, North Carolina, took an overdose of more than 90 pills – a combination of ten different prescription drugs, some of which she’d stolen from a neighbor’s bedside cabinet. That afternoon, she’d written a note on her computer: “I’ve screwed up this life so bad that there is no place here for me and nothing I can contr...

Miraculous Comeback After Stem Cell and PRP Therapy
Are you a baseball fan? Even if you’re not, you have to admire New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon. His comeback has been nothing short of miraculous — thanks to the amazing healing power of stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP utilizes platelets from an athletes’ own blood to rebuild a damaged tendon or cartilage. I began offering PRP therapy at my Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine a few weeks ago and the results I’ve seen from this therapy have just been incredible. Five years ago, Colon was considered washed-up at age 37. His pitching arm was shot. He had severe ligament damage and a tor...

Dems grill FDA nominee Califf on industry ties
(Reuters) — President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the FDA defended his ties to the pharmaceutical industry yesterday during a U.S. Senate committee hearing that included questions on soaring drug prices. Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) was among the Democrats who grilled Dr. Robert Califf, 64, who joined the FDA in January as a deputy commissioner. If confirmed, Califf would oversee an agency whose regulatory reach covers 20 cents of every dollar spent by U.S. consumers and includes food, drugs, tobacco, dietary supplements and cosmetics. Obama nominated Califf in September. Califf previously...

Yoga and meditation offer health care savings—and you can do them at home
A new research study shows that a little yoga or meditation a day might just keep the doctor away. Stress-related health problems are responsible for up to 80% of visits to the doctor and account for the third highest health care expenditures, behind only heart disease and cancer. But as few as 3% of doctors actually talk to patients about how to reduce stress. Mind-body practices like yoga and meditation have been shown to reduce your body’s stress response by strengthening your relaxation response and lowering stress hormones like cortisol. Yoga has been shown to have many health benefits, including improving heart hea...

Nutritional psychiatry: Your brain on food
Think about it. Your brain is always “on.” It takes care of your thoughts and movements, your breathing and heartbeat, your senses — it works hard 24/7, even while you’re asleep. This means your brain requires a constant supply of fuel. That “fuel” comes from the foods you eat — and what’s in that fuel makes all the difference. Put simply, what you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain and, ultimately, your mood. Like an expensive car, your brain functions best when it gets only premium fuel. Eating high-quality foods that contain lots of vitamins, minerals, a...

The Guardian view on homeopathy: the NHS shouldn’t pay | Editorial
Placebos can work magic. But that’s no argument for the health service to privilege a form of mock medicine that defies science and common senseWestern medicine doesn’t know it all. There are treatments that don’t work at all well, others that work for reasons that nobody can fathom, and all sorts of others again that are still to be discovered. It is also true – as western medicine itself has firmly established – that the sugar pill can sometimes be a wonder drug. The administration of anything with the form of a treatment can do real good, and remarkably this applies even where the patient knows that “treatme...

Cleaning the House of Medicine
A recent report in JAMA Internal Medicine highlights prevailing medical practices that should be "reconsidered" in 2015 based on the weight of evidence. The paper, appropriately, is written in the matter-of-fact style customary for the peer-reviewed literature. To some extent, that semblance of analytical calm belies the storm swirling between the lines of the report, and the mess it has long been making in the House of Medicine. The authors, for instance, note that excessive zeal for cancer screening results in "unnecessary surgery and complications." As a statement, that is rather bland, and even when statistics are atta...

Next Generation of Anti-Aging Medicine is Here
Do you know your biological age? How about the reserve capacity of your lungs? Or the length of your telomeres? These are important questions, but who do you ask? Unfortunately, your typical internal medicine doc probably can’t answer them. But the technology is here to answer all of these questions — and more. As a regular reader, for example, you probably know that telomeres are the tiny strands of DNA at the end of each chromosome that determine how healthy and long your life will be. And it’s very important that you know how long your telomeres are and how you can maintain them. But a typical doctor’s visit wo...

(Wiley) Although there are anecdotal reports indicating that cannabinoids, especially marijuana (or herbal cannabis), may be of therapeutic benefit for some patients with rheumatic complaints, a new review published in Arthritis Care & Research, a journal of the American College of Rheumatology, finds scant scientific evidence supporting any use of cannabinoids in rheumatic diseases. Furthermore, not a single controlled study has examined herbal cannabis in the rheumatology patient population. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
