Stress

Stress could become the leading cause of disability within the next 20 years. Stress-related workers’ compensation claims are rising dramatically. People stay at home “sick” because of worries about the pace of work and fears of layoffs, workplace violence and, since September 11, 2001, working in high-rise buildings. Our culture believes that every ailment can be treated, and many medications are effective against stress symptoms. Better: Accept stress as normal, but don’t let it rule your life. Take steps to relieve it. Examples: Exercise, massage, a hobby, deep breathing.

The decline in our ability to quickly recall names, dates and other memorized facts is known as Age-Associated Memory Impairment (AAMI). It is due to chemical changes in die brain cells as well as a general shrinkage of brain mass—a phenomenon that occurs in everybody, starting at about age 40. That’s the bad news. The good news is that, unlike Alzheimer’s Disease (which strikes a relatively small percentage of people and is largely untreatable in its later stages), AAMI can be minimized and/or delayed indefinitely. How? Through a mix of mental and physical exercises combined with daily supplements of a remarkable compound called phosphatidylserine—more commonly referred to as PS. What…

The Secrets of Happiness

To pessimists, the “movie of life” is a documentary that has an unchangeable script. Optimists, on the other hand, grab the storyline and become directors. They edit, refocus and add color to concoct a brighter, happier picture. This hopeful, in-control attitude shields them from outside influences and inner emotional turmoil. The good news for pessimists is that they can train themselves to think optimistically. Steps to Happiness Fake it—even if you don’t feel like it. Acting happy—even when you are not— makes you feel happier. Try smiling to improve your mood. Sitting up straight will make you more aware of your surroundings and feel more alert.Consciously relaxing your muscles helps…

The Truth Behind Myelodysplastic Syndromes

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a group of several related disorders characterized by bone marrow dysplasia and dysfunction associated with peripheral blood anemia, thrombocytopenia and or leukopenia. Anemia is the most common finding in patients with MDS. The peripheral blood smear can show macrocytosis of the red cells and hypo-granular neutrophils. The neutrophils can also show Pelger-Huet nuclei and other abnormal nuclear patterns and rarely you can see circulating micro megakaryocytes. The myelodysplastic disorders can evolve over time into acute leukemia. There are nine defined myelodysplastic syndromes: Age is a very important risk factor for the development of MDS. Smoking is associated with a three to five-fold increase in the occurrence…

Transfats aren't always easy to spot.

There are 7,000 deaths and more than 20,000 heart attacks per year and experts state these numbers could be severely reduced if trans-fats were eliminated from the food supply. However, you have an uprising of people who don’t like the government telling them what to do and what is good for them to eat. “It’s my body, my choice,” said one visibly obese woman. While it may be your body, when it comes to health care and putting unneeded pressure on a system that is already busting at the seams (no pun intended) isn’t what is best for society. Obesity is at an all-time high and we are in an…

Defective Blood Clot Filters

No one wants to have a health procedure done to them only to have the problem turn into something worse. Far worse. Often the issue is just a problem that wasn’t known. Something unforeseen. Unfortunately, there are other times when the problem was known and nothing was done because the big company saw a greater expense in pulling the product than settling lawsuits. You read that correctly. And while this article isn’t going to “name names” of big companies who are engaged in this practice, the purpose is to make you aware so you can ask the right questions before a procedure, or even do the research yourself to ensure…

autism teaching aid in a classroom

The number of autistic students entering the private and public school systems has skyrocketed over the last ten years, prompting the CDC to do a full study on how having autistic children in the classroom change the dynamics. Teachers who are not well prepared can feel frustrated or overwhelmed. Administrators can also feel frustration or the sense of being overwhelmed for different reasons as it is estimated that the cost of just one autistic child in the school system can cost $25,000-$100,000 more than a non-autistic child, for a single school year. That can be difficult for schools with tight budgets and the sharp increases in autism. The findings prompted CDC director, Dr. Colleen Boyle, to respond, “It…
