How Plastic We've Become        

Our bodies carry residues of kitchen plastics

Food for Thought

In the 1967 film classic The Graduate, a businessman corners Benjamin Braddock at a cocktail party and gives him a bit of career advice. "Just one word…plastics."

Although Benjamin didn't heed that recommendation, plenty of other young graduates did. Today, the planet is awash in products spawned by the plastics industry. Residues of plastics have become ubiquitous in the environment—and in our bodies.

A federal government study now reports that bisphenol A (BPA)—the building block of one of the most widely used plastics—laces the bodies of the vast majority of U.S. residents young and old.

Manufacturers link BPA molecules into long chains, called polymers, to make polycarbonate plastics. All of those clear, brittle plastics used in baby bottles, food ware, and small kitchen appliances (like food-processor bowls) are made from polycarbonates. BPA-based resins also line the interiors of most food, beer, and soft-drink cans. With use and heating, polycarbonates can break down, leaching BPA into the materials they contact. Such as foods.

And that could be bad if what happens in laboratory animals also happens in people, because studies in rodents show that BPA can trigger a host of harmful changes, from reproductive havoc to impaired blood-sugar control and obesity (SN: 9/29/07, p. 202).

For the new study, scientists analyzed urine from some 2,500 people who had been recruited between 2003 and 2004 for the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). Roughly 92 percent of the individuals hosted measurable amounts of BPA, according to a report in the January Environmental Health Perspectives. It's the first study to measure the pollutant in a representative cross-section of the U.S. population.

Typically, only small traces of BPA turned up, concentrations of a few parts per billion in urine, note chemist Antonia M. Calafat and her colleagues at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, with hormone-mimicking agents like BPA, even tiny exposures can have notable impacts.

Overall, concentrations measured by Calafat's team were substantially higher than those that have triggered disease, birth defects, and more in exposed animals, notes Frederick S. vom Saal, a University of Missouri-Columbia biologist who has been probing the toxicology of BPA for more than 15 years.

The BPA industry describes things differently. Although Calafat's team reported urine concentrations of BPA, in fact they assayed a breakdown product—the compound by which BPA is excreted, notes Steven G. Hentges of the American Chemistry Council's Polycarbonate/BPA Global Group. As such, he argues, "this does not mean that BPA itself is present in the body or in urine."

On the other hand, few people have direct exposure to the breakdown product.

Hentges' group estimates that the daily BPA intake needed to create urine concentrations reported by the CDC scientists should be in the neighborhood of 50 nanograms per kilogram of bodyweight—or one millionth of an amount at which "no adverse effects" were measured in multi-generation animal studies. In other words, Hentges says, this suggests "a very large margin of safety."

No way, counters vom Saal. If one applies the ratio of BPA intake to excreted values in hosts of published animal studies, concentrations just reported by CDC suggest that the daily intake of most Americans is actually closer to 100 micrograms (µg) per kilogram bodyweight, he says—or some 1,000-fold higher than the industry figure.

Clearly, there are big differences of opinion and interpretation. And a lot may rest on who's right.

Globally, chemical manufacturers produce an estimated 2.8 million tons of BPA each year. The material goes into a broad range of products, many used in and around the home. BPA also serves as the basis of dental sealants, which are resins applied to the teeth of children to protect their pearly whites from cavities (SN: 4/6/96, p. 214). The industry, therefore, has a strong economic interest in seeing that the market for BPA-based products doesn't become eroded by public concerns over the chemical.

And that could happen. About 2 years after a Japanese research team showed that BPA leached out of baby bottles and plastic food ware (see What's Coming Out of Baby's Bottle?), manufacturers of those consumer products voluntarily found BPA substitutes for use in food cans. Some 2 years after that, a different group of Japanese scientists measured concentrations of BPA residues in the urine of college students. About half of the samples came from before the switch, the rest from after the period when BPA was removed from food cans.

By comparing urine values from the two time periods, the researchers showed that BPA residues were much lower—down by at least 50 percent—after Japanese manufacturers had eliminated BPA from the lining of food cans.

Concludes vom Saal, in light of the new CDC data and a growing body of animal data implicating even low-dose BPA exposures with the potential to cause harm, "the most logical thing" for the United States to do would be to follow in Japan's footsteps and "get this stuff [BPA] out of our food."

Kids appear most exposed

Overall, men tend to have statistically lower concentrations of BPA than women, the NHANES data indicate. But the big difference, Calafat says, traces to age. "Children had higher concentrations than adolescents, and they in turn had higher levels than adults," she told Science News Online.

This decreasing body burden with older age "is something we have seen with some other nonpersistent chemicals," Calafat notes—such as phthalates, another class of plasticizers.

The spread between the average BPA concentration that her team measured in children 6 to 11 years old (4.5 µg/liter) and adults (2.5 µg/L) doesn't look like much, but proved reliably different.

The open question is why adults tended to excrete only 55 percent as much BPA. It could mean children have higher exposures, she posits, or perhaps that they break it down less efficiently. "We really need to do more research to be able to answer that question."

Among other differences that emerged in the NHANES analysis: urine residues of BPA decreased with increasing household income and varied somewhat with ethnicity (with Mexican-Americans having the lowest average values, blacks the highest, and white's values in between).

There was also a time-of-day difference, with urine values for any given group tending to be highest in the evening, lowest in the afternoon, and midway between those in the morning. Since BPA's half-life in the body is only about 6 hours, that temporal variation in the chemical's excretion would be consistent with food as a major source of exposure, the CDC scientists note.

In the current NHANES paper, BPA samples were collected only once from each recruit. However, in a paper due to come out in the February Environmental Health Perspectives, Calafat and colleagues from several other institutions looked at how BPA excretion varied over a 2-year span among 82 individuals—men and women—seen at a fertility clinic in Boston.

In contrast to the NHANES data, the upcoming report shows that men tended to have somewhat higher BPA concentrations than women. Then again both groups had only about one-quarter the concentration typical of Americans.

The big difference in the Boston group emerged among the 10 women who ultimately became pregnant. Their BPA excretion increased 33 percent during pregnancy. Owing to the small number of participants in this subset of the study population, the pregnancy-associated change was not statistically significant. However, the researchers report, these are the first data to look for changes during pregnancy and ultimately determining whether some feature of pregnancy—such as a change in diet or metabolism of BPA—really alters body concentrations of the pollutant could be important. It could point to whether the fetus faces an unexpectedly high exposure to the pollutant.

If it does, the fetus could face a double whammy: Not only would exposures be higher during this period of organ and neural development, but rates of detoxification also would be diminished, vom Saal says.

Indeed, in a separate study, one due to be published soon in Reproductive Toxicology, his team administered BPA by ingestion or by injection to 3-day-old mice. Either way, the BPA exposure resulted in comparable BPA concentrations in blood.

What's more, that study found, per unit of BPA delivered, blood values in the newborns were "markedly higher" than other studies have reported for adult rodents exposed to the chemical. And that makes sense, vom Saal says, because the enzyme needed to break BPA down and lead to its excretion is only a tenth as active in babies as in adults. That's true in the mouse, he says, in the rat—and, according to some preliminary data, in humans.

Vom Saal contends that since studies have shown BPA exhibits potent hormonelike activity in human cells at the parts-per-trillion level, and since the new CDC study finds that most people are continually exposed to concentrations well above the parts-per-trillion ballpark, it's time to reevaluate whether it makes sense to use BPA-based products in and around foods.

Enzymes dramatically increase the rate of biological reactions. How long would the reactions necessary for life take in the absence of enzymes?
          Glutathione Select the Best Antioxidants for Anti Aging        
It has long been accepted and practiced that eating food with antioxidants slows down aging. This has been practiced even before the term antioxidants was used. Ancient Chinese (and even the Chinese of today) prescribe special food that will enhance an attribute, cure an ailment,  improve metabolism, or increase vitality and vigor. In India, certain herbs are mixed with their foods,  similar to what the Chinese do. The same goes with Brazilians and Peruvians.


While almost all plants have sterols that are good for the metabolism in the body, foods that are generally known to contain high concentration of antioxidants are usually those that are present in plants  and other fruits containing amino acids, omega 3,6, and 9, and other useful fatty acids. The category also includes those that contain high concentrations of resveratrol and glutathione. The presence of antioxidants in diets will help protect the cells of the body from free radicals and toxins.


This is so because antioxidants work in a way that its molecules slow down and in some conditions, prevent the oxidation of other molecules. Anti-aging treatments that contain antioxidants often come in the form of capsules, tablets and energy drinks and other forms of dietary supplements.


Oxidation, while crucial at maintaining life, could be damaging. Animals and even plants maintain a high level and need complex anti-oxidant systems in multiple types. Many of these types come from plants in the form of sterols and enzymes such as superoxide dismutase, catalase and other peroxides. The most common and readily available antioxidant though is the Vitamin C and the Vitamin E.


One of the tangible reasons that a person lacks antioxidants in the body is tiredness and stress. A body that lacks antioxidants results to oxidative stress which damages and kills cells. Aside from anti oxidants being effective as anti-aging agents is their capacity to prevent a host of illnesses from occurring. Some types of antioxidants have demonstrated capacity to prevent the development of certain cancer cells, diabetes, heart ailments and other maladies. This is one of the reasons that foods that are high in anti-oxidant properties are highly sought after. Others are even in such a demand to command high prices.


Examples of foods that have vast concentration of antioxidant properties are coffee, grapes and berries. In fact the grapes in red wine have been known to have impressive anti-oxidizing properties that are usually attributed to the cause of the French being more fit in spite of the cholesterol rich food that they consume.  The skin of the grape is the part that is truly rich in antioxidants. Coffee has vast concentration too although what is mixed with the coffee is what causes the worry. The acai berry of Brazil is also widely advertised to have vast concentration of anti oxidant properties, pity that it is not consumed fresh in the rest of the world except Brazil.


In addition to its ability to repair and preserve cells making it an excellent anti aging agent, anti oxidants are also widely used as preservatives in food and cosmetics. Anti oxidants are also widely used in industrial applications where prevention of degradation is important.

          Batch enrichment of anammox bacteria and study of the underlying microbial community dynamics        
Batch enrichment of anammox bacteria and study of the underlying microbial community dynamics Connan, Romain; Dabert, Patrick; Khalil, Hassan; Bridoux, Gilbert; Béline, Fabrice; Magrí Aloy, Albert The anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) consists on the biological conversion of ammonium (NH4+) into dinitrogen gas under absence of oxygen. Nitrite (NO2-) is a substrate of the anammox reaction, but also an inhibitor at high concentrations. This study investigates the effect of nitrite on the microbial community during the batch enrichment of anammox sludge. Six inoculums collected from different environments were enriched after a conditioning pretreatment and under controlled conditions during 4 months. Concerning the mineral medium used, two different nitrite supply strategies were applied; i.e., (i) initially low concentration at 25 mg NO2-–N/L and progressive increase to 150 mg NO2-–N/L, and (ii) constant high concentration at 150 mg NO2-–N/L. All tested inoculums developed anammox activity but only when the enrichment was started at low nitrite concentration. In such case, the specific ammonium conversion rates finally obtained ranged from 21 ±1 to 118 ±1 mg NH4+–N/g VS/d (VS, volatile solids). Abundance of the functional gene encoding for the enzyme hydrazine oxidoreductase (hzo) was assessed using the real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (q-PCR) showing positive correlation with the anammox activity finally reported. In addition, high-throughput DNA sequencing helped to elucidate the underlying microbial community dynamics. The raw inoculum source, the conditioning pretreatment, and the cultivation conditions applied were jointly determinants of the final microbial community structure of the enrichments despite a clear convergence at the end of the experimental period. On the other hand, the cultivation conditions alone determined the selection of anammox species belonging to the genus Candidatus Brocadia.

          DIET RASULULLAH SAW…        

Rupanya tanpa kita sedari, dalam makanan yang kita makan sehari-hari, kita tak boleh sembarangan. Hal inilah penyebab terjadinya berbagai penyakit antara lain penyakit kencing manis, lumpuh, sakit jantung, keracunan makanan dan lain2 penyakit. Apabila anda telah mengetahui ilmu ini, tolonglah ajarkan kepada yg lainnya. Ini pun adalah diet Rasullulah SAW kita juga. Rasullulah tak pernah sakit perut sepanjang hayatnya kerana pandai menjaga makanannya sehari-hari. Insya Allah kalau anda ikut diet Rasullullah ini, anda takkan menderita sakit perut ataupun keracunan makanan.

Jangan makan SUSU bersama DAGING
Jangan makan DAGING bersama IKAN
Jangan makan IKAN bersama SUSU
Jangan makan AYAM bersama SUSU
Jangan makan IKAN bersama TELUR
Jangan makan IKAN bersama DAUN SALAD
Jangan makan SUSU bersama CUKA
Jangan makan BUAH bersama SUSU CTH :- KOKTEL

CARA MAKAN

  • Jangan makan buah setelah makan nasi, sebaliknya makanlah buah terlebih dahulu, baru makan nasi.
  • Tidur 1 jam setelah makan tengah hari.
  • Jangan sesekali tinggal makan malam. Barangsiapa yang tinggal makan malam dia akan dimakan usia dan kolesterol dalam badan akan berganda.
Nampak memang sulit.. tapi, kalau tak percaya... cubalah..... ......... . Pengaruhnya tidak dalam jangka pendek.... Akan berpengaruh bila kita sudah tua nanti.
Dalam kitab juga melarang kita makan makanan darat bercampur dengan makanan laut. Nabi pernah mencegah kita makan ikan bersama susu. Kerana akan cepat mendapat penyakit. Ini terbukti oleh ilmuwan yang menemukan bahwa dalam daging ayam mengandung ion+ sedangkan dalam ikan mengandung ion-, jika dalam makanan kita ayam bercampur dengan ikan maka akan terjadi reaksi biokimia yang akan dapat merosak usus kita.
Al-Quran juga mengajarkan kita menjaga kesihatan seperti membuat amalan antara lain:
  • Mandi Pagi sebelum subuh, sekurang kurangnya sejam sebelum matahari terbit. Air sejuk yang meresap kedalam badan dapat mengurangi penimbunan lemak. Kita boleh saksikan orang yang mandi pagi kebanyakan badan tak gemuk.
Rasulullah mengamalkan minum segelas air sejuk (bukan air ais) setiap pagi. Mujarabnya Insya Allah jauh dari penyakit (susah mendapat sakit).
Waktu sembahyang subuh disunatkan kita bertafakur (iaitu sujud sekurang kurangnya seminit setelah membaca doa). Kita akan terhindar dari sakit kepala atau migrain. Ini terbukti oleh para ilmuwan yang membuat kajian kenapa dalam sehari perlu kita sujud. Ahli-ahli sains telah menemui beberapa milimeter ruang udara dalam saluran darah di kepala yg tidak dipenuhi darah. Dengan bersujud maka darah akan mengalir keruang tersebut.
Nabi juga mengajar kita makan dengan tangan dan bila habis hendaklah menjilat jari. Begitu juga ahli saintis telah menemukan bahwa enzyme banyak terkandung di celah jari jari, yaitu 10 kali ganda terdapat dalam air liur. (enzyme sejenis alat percerna makanan)

          Zesty Dairy Free "Cheese" Ball        
Zesty Dairy Free Cheese Ball
I can't take credit for this one! My Mom and Sister came up with it quite a few years ago to take the place of the cream cheesy ball that Mom always made when we were kids that everyone loved.

I made this 5 or 6 years back at Christmas and now my husband asks for it every year. It has become a tradition!

It's very good with veggies or crackers! I love that our family feels like it's a special treat when in reality it is super duper healthy with mainly raw sprouted almonds packed full of whole food nutrition and enzymes that well help you digest those maybe not so much whole food treats! ;)

I love to make this up just before Christmas and have as part of all our fun dips with our finger foods. I make enough that we have some leftover for New Years too.

Healthy Cheese Ball without Dairy


Zesty Dairy Free "Cheese" Ball
2 cups almonds, soaked for 8 hours
1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked for 4 hours and sprouted for 4 hours (or just add 3 cups of soaked almonds instead of 2)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cups chopped green onions
1/4 to 1/2 cup Tahini
1/4 cup Shoyu
3 slices sweet onion, cut in small chunks
1/2 medium green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
6 Tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
2 to 3 medium cloves garlic, minced
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch of ginger powder
pinch of cumin
pinch of paprika
1 can crushed pineapple, drained very well
1 cup finely chopped pecans


Place the soaked and drained almonds and/or sunflower seeds, lemon juice and water in a food processor and process until smooth. Scoop into a large bowl. Stir in the chopped green onions, tahini, shoyu, onions, parsley, bell pepper, garlic, cayenne, ginger, cumin, and paprika. Add the crushed, drained pineapple into the mixture till well blended. Shape with dampened hands into a rounded ball shape and place carefully on a plate or dish (approx. eight inch diameter) Press the chopped pecans onto the ball with your hands so that the ball is covered with nuts. Can garnish with a parsley leaf and dried cranberry if desired.

          Bacterial Vaginosis Natural Treatment Probiotics        
The research into probiotics and the understanding of beneficial bacteria within our bodies is growing rapidly. It has become very obvious that probiotics play a tremendous role in our daily health from vitamin absorption to fighting off common and uncommon diseases and problems that afflict us on a daily basis.




Health Benefits of Probiotics




* Studies have found that probiotics may improve nutrient bioavailability, for B vitamins, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, magnesium and phosphorus, among others.
* Pediatric studies have found that certain strains (such as Lactobacillus GG, found in Culturelle capsules) may aid in significantly decreasing the rate of acute diarrhea and rotavirus shedding. Parents also reported a 25% decrease in diaper rash among babies drinking formula containing probiotics.
* Probiotics and active bacteria culture may improve lactose intolerance. The bacterial strain commonly used in yogurt can produce lactase enzymes. Therefore, people with lactose intolerance and children suffering from intestinal infection can usually tolerate yogurt with an active culture.
* Some studies have shown that by regulating intestinal transit time, probiotics improve constipation among the elderly.
* Other studies have shown that probiotics, especially acidophilus, promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon and reduce the conversion of bile into carcinogens (cancer- causing substances).
* Some studies have found that probiotics may enhance immunity by regulating lymphocytes and antibodies.




What can probiotics do for women and their health?





Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14 are the worlds most documented probiotic strains for women’s health. They were selected for their ability to interfere with infectivity of a range of bacteria and yeast in the vagina, as well as confer benefits to the intestine and reduce the risk of bladder infections.




Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 has been shown to adhere to cells in the bladder, vagina and intestine. Some people believe this is key to its ability to promote health, but in fact, it is only one of the important attributes. The organism displaces and prevents adhesion by intestinal and urogenital pathogens, inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and yeast, can kill HIV and other viruses through its acid production, and stops pathogens from forming clumps or biofilms that are very difficult for drugs to eradicate. It is innately resistant to vancomycin and spermicidal nonoxynol-9. The strain induces an anti-inflammatory effect and modulates factors that would otherwise increase a woman’s risk of preterm labor.




Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14 adheres to bladder, vaginal, and intestinal cells displaces and prevents adhesion by intestinal and urogenital pathogens, inhibits the growth of these harmful organisms and can kill HIV and other viruses through its acid production. It produces hydrogen peroxide that many believe is important in vaginal health. It also produces signaling factors that disarm toxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus, the bacterium that causes so many hospital infections and deaths (the “superbug”). Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14 also possesses immune modulatory activity.




Probiotics are completely safe and fall into the category of natural treatment in the home. They are commonly available and inexpensive.

Enzyme Development for Human Islet Isolation: Five Decades of Progress or Stagnation?

Rev Diabet Stud. 2017;14(1):22-38

Authors: Brandhorst D, Brandhorst H, Johnson PRV

Abstract
In comparison to procedures used for the separation of individual cell types from other organs, the process of human pancreatic islet isolation aims to digest the pancreatic exocrine matrix completely without dispersing the individual cells within the endocrine cell cluster. This objective is unique within the field of tissue separation, and outlines the challenge of islet isolation to balance two opposing priorities. Although significant progress has been made in the characterization and production of enzyme blends for islet isolation, there are still numerous areas which require improvement. The ultimate goal of enzyme production, namely the routine production of a consistent and standardized enzyme blend, has still not been realized. This seems to be mainly the result of a lack of detailed knowledge regarding the structure of the pancreatic extracellular matrix and the synergistic interplay between collagenase and different supplementary proteases during the degradation of the extracellular matrix. Furthermore, the activation of intrinsic proteolytic enzymes produced by the pancreatic acinar cells, also impacts on the chance of a successful outcome of human islet isolation. This overview discusses the challenges of pancreatic enzymatic digestion during human islet isolation, and outlines the developments in this field over the past 5 decades.

          Anti-Cellulite Healthy eating plan - These are definitely The Foodstuff That Struggle Cellulite By natural means & Detoxify Body!        
Anti Cellulite
The ideal diet program should be at the coreof any anti-cellulite treatment. Any remedy, no matter how effective, can only provide you with short-term results, if it is not combined with theright diet regime.

But,
what's the proper diet programfor women who suffer from cellulite?

The
diet program should be based primarily on food itemsthat promote the elimination of excessive fluids, strengthen the capillaries and improve the circulation of blood. It is also essential to eliminate foodstuff that cause water retention. A eating plan rich in flavour, but low in sodium (no more than 1.5 g per day) is without doubt the most effective solutions to the issue of cellulite. Here are somepowerful anti-cellulite food items:

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries: berries are rich in bioflavonoids,
vit c and salicylic acid, substances that help maintain strong capillary walls and have diuretic properties.
Pineapple and papaya: they contain special enzymes that can
combat even the most stubborn water retention. However, these substances are mainly concentrated in the less edible parts of the fruits, like, the stem of pineapple and the leaves of papaya. For this reason, it would be a good idea to make a tea by mixing these parts of the fruit in their dried form.
  • Citrus fruits: oranges, lemons and grapefruit are full of vitamin C, which protects the capillaries. Lemon is also rich in citrates, substances that help circulation and eliminate toxins.
  • Cherries: they have powerful diuretic and detoxifying properties. The fruit is useful to combat constipation and hydrate the body.
  • Kiwi: it is full of vit c, which strengthens the capillaries and combats constipation.
  • Banana: it includes a lot of potassium that reduces fluid retention, caused by sodium.
  • Asparagus: this vegetable contains substances, called saponins, that contain a quick and efficient diuretic effect.
  • Tomatoes they contain anthocyanins, factors that promote healthy capillaries.
  • Peppers: they are rich in bioflavonoids and improve the state of blood vessels and the proper functioning of the intestines.
  • Chicory: it's rich in substances (like vit c and chlorophyll) that combat water retention.
  • Radicchio: it includes lots of vitamin C and minerals like potassium that have a slightly laxative action, which is essential to eliminatetoxins.
  • Fish: its containing more protein and omega3, which promote good blood and lymphatic circulation and may help you tomaintain strong muscles.
  • Cucumbers: this vegetable in the ideal anti-cellulite food, due to its high water content (it contains greater than 96.5% water).
  • White meat (chicken, turkey): it contains a lot of iron and is rich in monounsaturated acids, which promote good the circulation of blood.




          Phenterex - Raising The Standard In Diet Drugs        
Up to now, this info about diet capsule has been used with fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine in a drugs known as Fenfen to achieve optimal effects. Nonetheless, this best weight loss pills have been stopped in the year 1997 because improvement of heart-valve problems has been related with the use of fenfluramine.
These days, Anoxine-am is used to induce info. If you find yourself taking this weight loss plan capsule, make sure that you observe your physician's prescribed dose to the letter as a result of it may trigger withdrawal signs and symptoms. Typically, this weight-reduction plan capsule is bought fast phentermine or capsules and perhaps taken three times each day half-hour before a meal or in a separate dosage throughout breakfast. If you see this, you can learn that whether it is taken through the later methodology, it is better to take this medicine an hour before dinner or roughly 2 hours after breakfast with a full goblet of water to improve urge for food suppression. It ought to by no means be taken a few hours before bedtime as it might cause sleeping difficulties.
Anoxine-am, also sold as fat loss remedy for losing weight in a month, was first established within the mainstream market after it was accepted by the Meals and Drug Direction in the year 1959. It turned a preferred treatment for obesity and has been the topic of many research and articles at this Phentermine site in UK beginning in 1990.
Sometimes, Obephen is used on a short-term basis and it ought to never be extended without the doctor's advice how to lose excessive weight fast as it might cause dependence. So as to achieve optimum outcomes, see site and it should also be linked with a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle.
While you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. You can also try alli free delivery. However, never take an extra dose to compensate for a dose you missed as this will likely cause an overdose. In addition, individuals using antidepressants, insulin or oral medications for diabetes and drugs used to lower high blood pressure ought to by [1] take up weight-reduction plan capsule due to tablet interactions. Consuming alcohol can be averted when on this tablet to avoid rising the unintended effects of this weight loss tablet.
The growing request for Phentermine free delivery UK will be attributed to the stereotype set by the storage devices by way of beauty. Magazines, television and the internet have set skinny folks in the maximum pedestal of beauty. Happily, Adiphene exists. It is a widely used anti-weight problems treatment within the United States that's much like amphetamines and activates the combat or flight response, in the manner "je veux maigrir vite" releasing epinephrine and norepinephrine.

          A Clear View in Sight        
        As you all know I have been away for awhile because of my eyes. I have literally been sitting doing nothing most of this time. I totally de-stressed. I slept a lot. I lost 20 pounds on my elimination diet and that was not intentional, but happily received! I took a lot of time to sit and stare at the hillsides around me. Listen to the countryside. Enjoy my little spot on the mountain. And I healed. My eyes are not 100% yet but I can say there has been a 90% improvement if not more. I am not sure why this problem keeps rearing its head. The doctor says it is caused by fatigue and stress but I don't live a particularly tiring or stressful life. She also said there is no cure so whatever is causing it I hope my lifestyle changes help to keep it away.
      My main change I have made these last two months is my diet. I didn't change it because of my eyes, I went on a strict elimination diet to determine what kind of food sensitivity I am having. I still haven't located the culprit, though I still haven't added back all foods. All I really know is that this diet has made a clear difference in my health. I lost the 20 pounds and that is wonderful but that wasn't the greatest benefit. My headaches went away. My constant stuffiness and post nasal drip is gone. My insomnia barely shows it's presence anymore. My knees don't hurt going up the stairs (I am sure this is because of the weight) and my arthritis pain is almost completely gone. The stomach and intestinal problems that have been plaguing me for many years now are practically non-existent. All because of my food. I also added some fermented foods. Mainly fermented vegetables and probiotics and I added digestive enzymes. I haven't went back to the doc to have my tests done to see how well this worked against my cholesterol but I know I am healthier. I don't doubt it for a minute. I FEEL healthier.
      So I am coming back to my blog. I will go slow. I refuse to tire myself out and get back in the same bad situation. I can only sit for so long though. I must do something. While I rested many things have gone on here at the house. We have had workers in and Frenchie has been working hard on his days off. I did do a little here and there but I watched myself and didn't overdo. I do have some things to show you though. I will try to update you in the next few weeks.
      I do have one slight problem though,  I lost my camera. We went on a visit to see friends in Zurich and the bag I took was left behind at a train station. Of course it was the last train that night so no going back to retrieve it. So for the moment the only thing I have to take photos is my tablet. I hope the pictures don't hurt your eyes too much!
    I do have a few projects in mind to begin my activity. So be on the lookout. I will post again soon.

                       

Until then take care and the weekend is soon upon us, have fun!


          Emotional yo-yo!        


Sunday night Jadon was admitted to the cardiac critical care unit because of severe lethargy and low blood pressure.  On Monday morning after a blood transfusion and some time on a blood presser, he was doing much better.  He was followed up with several ultrasounds and x-rays and since he was doing so well, was moved up to the cardiac floor early Tuesday afternoon.  It was nice to have such a short stay in the CCCU.  

Our relief however was very short lived.  In the evening, Jadon's blood pressure was extremely low once again.  Less than 8 hours after leaving, Jadon was once again admitted into the CCCU.  This time he was put onto 2 different blood pressers and ended up on a morphine infusion due to his obvious pain and discomfort.  He has had several other diagnostic tests to help figure out what the issue is.  The telescoping of his intestine has corrected iteslf, but tonight he sits in the CCCU, lethargic and uncomfortable.  The medical team is not exactly sure as to the source of the issues, but are currently querying pancreatitis, given his pancreas enzymes are elevated.

Through this all, Jadon has been able to remain on room air, which is encouraging.  One of the tests was an echo-cardiogram (heart ultrasound).  It shows that there may be some small improvement in heart function through this all.  We will take whatever positives we can during this difficult past 2 weeks.

On a positive note, Jadon is featured on some huge monitors around the hospital as part of an advertisement. The woman in the picture is was awarded a "Smile" award and asked for Jadon to be in the photo with her. To bad he had just woken up and did not smile. ( The pic was taken in the summer when he was more fluid overloaded)



          Not exactly the way we envisioned it!        
Jadon turned 3 today.  This was the first birthday of his that he had with mom and dad around.  It was the first birthday he had with a family and friends that are behind him and supporting him.  Unfortunately, it was likely not the first birthday he spent with multiple health caregivers surrounding him.
When we first adopted Jadon, we thought his heart issues had already been fixed with the Tetrology of Fallot surgery.  As it turns out, he had only received a temporary fix, buying him some time until he could get the complete surgery.  When we went into the hospital on Feb 11 for his complete Tet repair, we had absolutely no expectations that his birthday would be spent in the hospital.  Even during the summer, we and the kids were so looking forward to this day.  We were hoping that after Jadon's G-tube insertion and fundoplication on Wednesday, that he would be recovering well, taking his feeds, and be upstairs in his own room on the cardiac floor.  We were hoping that his birthday would be only days before he would be able to come home.

Unfortunately, due to the cardiac arrest on Wednesday evening, and the liver and kidney complications, Jadon is still intubated in the Cardiac Critical Care Unit.  This is where he celebrated his third birthday.  The nurses from both floors, the CCCU and the Cardiac floor were absolutely wonderful.  They helped Rykauna decorate Jadon's crib area, made and signed cards, brought gifts and a cake, and sang Happy Birthday to Jadon.  We could once again see the love that so much of the staff have for Jadon.

Jadon's liver enzyme numbers are looking much better.  His kidneys are working better and he is starting to get rid of the excess fluid (which is currently his biggest problem), he is on minimal ventilator settings and he is tolerating significant feeds through his newly inserted G-tube.  Once again, our little warrior is fighting through yet another setback!  We are so proud of him and we love him so much.

Happy Birthday Jadon!
          Chia Power        
Chances are if I say the
word "chia
" to yo
u, it con
jures up this image:


Amazingly, it turns out that this same little seed that gave us not only the Chia Pet, but also the Chia Mr. T, Chia Britney and Chia Obama - I know, quite a miracle seed! - is also a serious nutritional powerhouse. But why eat something that you can grow into a decorative piece of greenery? Here's a few reasons:

1. It's a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids (including the famous omega-3 and omega-6) that our body needs to survive but can't produce itself. There are very few plant foods that fall into this category, so it's a fantastic food for vegans or anyone looking to decrease their meat and dairy intake - or just anyone looking for low-cal, high-energy protein source. Chia has been reported to contain twice as much protein as any other seed or grain.

2. It has more iron than spinach! Again, great for those who don't go to red meat for iron.

3. Chia is really high in those good old antioxidants, which we know help fight free radicals and keep our lovely cells stable and cancer-free. It is reported to have three times more antioxidants than blueberries! Further, all those antioxidants help keep chia really stable at room temperature, and can be stored in the cupboard for years without going rancid (unlike flax and many other seeds and nuts).

4. It contains way more calcium than milk (and none of the dubious hormones found in conventional dairy). Don't get me started on the dairy = calcium myth! Let's suffice it to say, it's a big industry with a powerful lobby and a long, strong history. Getting calcium from chia is a much better choice for many reasons. For starters, it also contains the trace mineral boron that helps our bones absorb calcium.

5. Chia has more potassium than bananas. Mix these two together in a smoothie and you'll be cramp-invincible!

6. It slows the release of sugars into the bloodstream, helping to prevent energy spikes. Great for diabetics or anyone, really. Add some chia into your sweet foods or drinks, and the chia creates a barrier between the carbs and the enzymes that digest them. It also means your carbohydrate energy becomes longer lasting, so you feel stronger for longer.

7. As above, because chia slows the release of carbs, it seems to be a great exercise food. If I eat chia and go running or practice yoga later that day my endurance and strength seem to be increased. Perhaps this is also due to chia's water absorption capacity, which keeps the body hydrated and full of electrolytes during exercise. In Mayan tradition, chia was eaten by runners carrying messages over far distances - they always had a little pouch of this "running food" with them.

8. Chia is great at cleaning out your intestinal tract. It acts like a little broom, sweeping into those out-of-the-way corners and removing accumulated waste (yuck, I know, but so much better to get it out of there!).

Chia is one of my favorite superfoods because it is not only packed with nutrition and a source of endless energy, but it is also incredibly versatile in terms of culinary creativity. Here's what the little salvia hispanica seeds look like when dry:


And here's what they look like when soaked in water:


They go all gell-y when soaked and can absorb up to 10 times their volume in water (or juice, or any other liquid). Chia doesn't have much flavor of its own but has a kind of tapioca-like texture, which makes it great to use in recipes. I especially like to create all kinds of puddings using chia as the base, or add the gell to smoothies or juices for some extra slow-release energy.

Black Sesame Chia Pudding

Chia Pudding, Three Ways
Serves 4 for a light breakfast or dessert, or 2 for a hearty breakfast

Basic Recipe
5 Tbsp chia seeds
2 cups almond milk*
1-2 Tbsp raw honey, agave or maple syrup (adjust to taste - sweetness is a very personal thing!)

For Middle Eastern Chia Pudding
1 tsp rosewater
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Add the vanilla, rosewater and cardamom to the basic recipe. Stir well and set aside for at least 10 minutes. Stir again. Serve in shallow bowls, sprinkled with cinnamon.

For Vanilla and Nectarine Chia Pudding
4 nectarines
2 Tbsp agave nectar, honey or maple syrup
1/2 vanilla pod

Cut nectarines in half and remove the stone. Drizzle with sweetener and place, cut side up, on dehydrator screens. Dehydrate for at least 4 hours, or overnight if eating for breakfast.

Scrape the seeds from the 1/2 vanilla pod and add to basic recipe. Stir well and let sit for at least 10 minutes. Serve in shallow bowls, topped with 2 nectarine halves each.

Variation: Omit the nectarines. Mascerate 1 cup of berries in orange juice to cover for 1 hour. Spoon on top of pudding to serve.

For Black Sesame Chia Pudding
1/2 cup +1 Tbsp black sesame seeds
2 cups water
1/4 cup dried coconut

Omit the almond milk from the basic recipe. Instead, grind the black sesame seeds in a spice mill or coffee grinder. Blend the ground seeds with the water in a blender. Add the black sesame milk to the chia seeds and sweetener. Stir well and set aside for at least 10 minutes. Just before serving, mix through the dried coconut. Serve in shallow bowls, garnished with a sprinkle of black sesame seeds and a dusting of dried coconut.

As you can see, chia is highly adaptable. For more sweet chia inspiration check out:
Chia can also be added to savory recipes. Carmella's (of The Sunny Raw Kitchen fame) Chia House Dressing is so beautiful, and it has inspired me to being adding chia to all of my favorite salad dressing recipes to thicken them without adding more oil. I recently created the following adaptation and served it tossed through a salad of raw rocket, zucchini and red onion mixed with cooked millet.


Sweet Sunny Chia Coriander Dressing
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp tahini
2 Tbsp honey
1 1/2 Tsp himalayan salt
1/4 cup (packed) coriander/cilantro leaves
1 cup water

Place everything into the blender and blend away. Mmmmmm. This would also be lovely over sweet potatoes, or any salad really.

Chia are really one of most versatile, remarkable and nutritious foods I've ever come across. I eat the slippery seeds nearly every day, and I suggest you give them a try. And if by some off chance they don't do it for you, you can always use them to do this:

"I pity the fool who don't like chia"


          Coconut Lucuma Cake with Mango and Coconut Vanilla Creme Swirl        


I've been having fun creating superfood recipes lately, and this one was inspired by a box of ripe mangoes and a dinner party invite. Almonds, coconut, lucuma, honey, mango, banana, macadamias, vanilla - this cake is more chock-full of nutrients than most people's meals. Protein and mineral rich almonds, immune-system and weight-balancing coconut, vitamin-C packed lucuma and mango, enzyme-rich raw honey, and much more.

All that goodness and three delicious, complex textures and flavors to tantalize the taste buds to boot! The bottom layer is a dense, cakey coconut lucuma extravaganza, topped with smooth mango puree swirled with a beautiful coconut macadamia vanilla creme. This is why raw desserts are amazing. Every bite is packed with yumminess and vitality.

Coconut Lucuma Cake with Mango and Coconut Vanilla Crème Swirl

Cake Layer:
1 cup almonds, ground to powder
1 cup dried coconut, ground to powder
½ cup lucuma powder

          Comment on SPIRULINA by CROATIAN CENTER of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES        
The most powerful foods on earth are Spirulina Plantensis and Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. They complement one another in many ways because they are completely different foods with different nutrients. Spirulina is an extremely pure food, 95% digestible, extremely high in the Vitamin B-complex, iron, calcium and essential fatty acids such as Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is excellent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis or bursitis. Spirulina is an excellent food to consume before a workout because of the explosive energy it provides to the body. Chlorella has incredible anti-cancer properties. Its unique fiber is great for the digestion (make sure the cell walls are broken) as well as heavy metal and synthetic toxin removal. It has large amounts of nucleic acids (RNA/DNA), which, along with amino acids (protein), are the building blocks of our cells. Chlorella can even be used topically on cuts, scrapes, infections, even serious wounds, as can Spirulina. Spirulina and Chlorella are perfect whole foods, true superfoods. They have perfect compliments of protein (60%) carbohydrates (19%), fats (6%) bio-available minerals (8%). They are not extracts, concentrates or amalgams of vitamins and minerals that look good on paper such as the vitamin and mineral supplements that people generally believe to be healthy. In reality, the body does not absorb 90% of these vitamin supplements because they are dead, void of enzymes. On the other hand, eating Spirulina or Chlorella is like eating any other whole food such as a banana, apple or broccoli.
          Nutrition of Wound        
Describe the process of screening to identify nutritional problem/ concernsAnswer:
The screening process should identify risk factors for the development of pressure ulcer as well as identify those individuals who are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition:
Significant weight loss
Disease states and condition (diabetes, dementia, malnutrition, cancer, renal disease, obesity
Immobility and inactivity (hip fracture, spinal cord injury, stroke)
Chewing and swallowing problems (dysphagia, stroke, parkinson disease, cerebral palsy)
Poor food and fluid intake
Medication adverse effect

Identify the parameters involved in completing a nutritional assesment
Answer:
Anthropometry (the measurement of body size, weight and proportions) is used to evaluate a patient`s nutritional status. Because a change in anthropometric value can signal problems such as wasting or edema, reflecting nutritional excess or deficit.

Describe the role of nutrients in wound prevention and healingAnswer:
There are six major classes of nutrients:
Carbohidyrates; Carbohidyrates provide energy and prevent gluconeogenesis from protein store. 50%-60% of the patients total caloric needs. An inadequate supply of carbohidyrates results in muscle wasting, loss of subcutaneous tissue and poor wound healing.
Protein and amino acids; is responsible for repair and synthesis of enzymes involved in wound healing, cell multiplication, and collagen and connective tissue synthesis. Protein is a component of antibodies needed for immune system function (20%-25%). Protein requirement for patient with pressure ulcer is debatable, but it`s higher than the adult recommendation of 0.8 g/kg/day. The elderly patient ranges between 1.2and 1.5 g/kg/day.
Fats and Fatty acids; Fat is the most concentrated source of energy and provides a reserve source of energy in the form of stored triglycerides in adipose tissue (20%-25% of the total calories)
Vitamins; Vitamins are organic compounds that the body requries in small amounts for proper functioning. Vitamin A, D, E and K (fat soluble vitamins), Vitamin A is responsible for epithelium maintenance, stimulates cellular differentiation in fibroblast and collagen formation, Vitamin E is an antioxidant and responsible for normal fat metabolism and collagen synthesis.
Vitamin C and B, play a role in wound healing. Vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis. Vitamin B are necessary for the production of energy from glucose, amino acid and fat.
Minerals; zinc is a cofactor for collagen formation, also metabolizes protein liberates vitamin A from storage in the liver, interacts with platelets in blood clotting and assists in immune function. Copper is responsible for collagen cross linking and erythropoesis. Iron is a constituent of hemoglobin, collagen transport, and oxygen transport.
Water; 60% of the adult body weight, water is vital functions in the body for: aids in hydration of wound sites and in oxygen perfusion, acts as a solvents for minerals, vitamins, amino acids, glucose and the orther small molecules and enables them to diffuse into and out of cell, and water for transport vital material to cells as well as waste away from cells.

Define the role of nutrition management for malnutritionAnswer:
Nutritional support is the variety of techniques available for use when a person can not meet his nutritional needs by ingestion of food. It`s include such strategies as providing additional liqiud nutritional supplements or various snack foods to the person`s oral diet, feeding via a tube placed in the GI tract or the most invasive method-giving nutrients via the venous system as a total parenteral nutrition when GI tract isn`t functional. Nutritional support is used to place the patient into positive nitrogen balance, according to the goals of care and whether it`s compatible with the patient`s and family`s wishes.

          PERISTOMAL SKIN PROBLEMS AND TREATMENT        
By.Nyoman,S.Kep,Ns,WOCN
A. INTRODUCTION.

The skin plays an important role in ostomy care, providing the surface on which the pouching system is adhered. Intact, dry epidermis and a well-fitted pouching system enable a sustained, predictable wear time. When skin integrity is compromised or when drains or an open incision infringe on adhesives, potential for pouch leakage exists . The cyclical pattern of pouch leakage/skin erosion/pouch leakage must be broken to enable epidermal resurfacing and restoration of an intact seal. People with Ostomys are more prone to skin problems such as rashes, infections caused by moisture accumulation, reaction to different glues, and build up of normal fungi. Prevention is the key, early detection can catch serious complications, and unnecessary discomfort. The incidence of peristomal complications that can compromise that integrity cannot be easily determined; a review of literature indicates a complication incidence ranging from 18% to 55%. Peristomal skin complications are very common and are seen in 80% of persons operated on with an ostomy. This complications include erythema and leakage, irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact eczema, folliculitis, infections, pseudoverrucous epidermal hyperplasia, dermatologic diseases and special wounds . Many the complication happen at home. Prevention is the key, early detection can catch serious complications, ET nurse can use a assessment tool. The assessment on stoma can be help to identify the complication so it will be treatmented.

Stoma; Stomal type (Can not be determined by inpection, Review the operative report, leostomy, Colostomy, Urostomy, Etc), Stomal viability ( Normal Color and turgor, Moist and beefy red, Eterostomy and vesicostomies often pale pink, Oedema, taut, shiny, translucent,Pale intestinal stoma, low hb, level, Dark stomal/purple, early ischemia, Brownish stoma, melanosis coli long term laxative, Stomal height (Assessed degree of protrution, Ideal stoma : 2,5 cm, Flush stoma : below skin level, Long stoma, Prolaps, Construction ( End, Loop, Double barrel, Bradge / rod, Stent / catheter), Location ( Righ / lift side, Upper / lower kuadran, Peristomal contour : smooth surface), Size (Accurately cm / mm, Oval stoma should measured at both widest and narrowest point)
2. Mucocutaneus line; suture line should be neatly close to the dermis with evenly placed
intermittent sutures, bleeding points, gaping areas, contusion, extrudingserosal tissueor attachments, or disruption of sutures should be noted.
3. Peristomal skin; peristomal skin should resemble the normal abdominal wall (Normal : intact,
Maseration, Foliculitis, Erythema, Ulceration, Reason : alergic reaction, fungal rash, chemical / mechanical damage. Note hematoma collected in the peristomal tissue, small skin abrations or diathermy burns.


4. Genitourinary fungtion ( Immediately upon construction, Mucus is normal, Ureteral stent / catheter should be documented )
5. Gastrointestinal fungtion ( Ileostomy : 48 hrs, proteolitic enzyme and bile salt, Effluent : dark, green, odorless, 500 -1500 ml, Colostomy : 3 - 5 day after surgery, output stomal depending on the location ).
Another assessments include; Nutrion / hydration ( Maintain fluid balance chart, Nil by mouth, Ice chips, clear fluids full fluids and soft diet as bowel fungtion returns, Record output from drains /
NGT. Hygiene / skin integrity : Day 1 : assist shower – mobile, Day 2 : Shower – mobile, Day3 : Shower – mobile, Note perineal skin redness or excoriation. Pain management ( Assess pain score hourly, Reinforce need to push button for PCA Observe acess sites for leakage and redness each shift ( epidural fom PCA), Attend to discomfort from wounds and flatus by ecauranging frequent position changes, bdominal splint pillows . Mobility ( Day 1 : walking with assistance, Day 2 : usually mobile)

B. PERISTOMAL SKIN PROBLEMS & TREATMENT .

Peristomal skin complications and it is treatment are:
1. Dermatitis Inflammation to the skin, two common types are irritant or allergic reaction.Allergic Dermatits (Figure 1 )is a allergic reaction to skin barrier, tape collar, adhesive remover or skin prep and paste. Presents with itching, burning, stinging and red rash
Treatment :Discontinue use of adhesive remover or skin prep, Change paste to type with lower alcohol content such as Coloplast Strip pasteCalamine Lotion painted over red area will act as a barrier and prevent further irritation,
Sween cream can be used to moisturize dry red area,
Cortate (steroid lotion) can help decrease redness (If rash or redness persists longer than 2 weeks contact ET or Doctor).
2. Iriritant dermatitis (figure 2 )occurs if the pouching system has leaked. Presents as weepy sores with possible bleeding. Causes discomfort. This can occur if there has been leakage or skin stripping by frequent pouch removal or removing the barrier in a rough manner.Prevention :Remove skin barrier slowly, Dry skin well after cleansing area, Examine skin, Use water only to cleanse area if skin is irritated. If there has been stripping of skin Duoderm may be used to protect the open area. Stomahesive Powder may also assist to dry weepy areas, If skin irritation persists longer than 2 pouch changes contact ET or Doctor


3. Folliculitis (figure 3) is an inflammation of the hair follicles which is caused by removal of hair by when skin barrier is removed aggressively. Inflammation of hair follicles in the peristomal area is a caused by bacterial invation of a traumatized follicle. Common in hirsute males, it may be induced by adequate shaving of the site or trauma to the hair follicle when the hairs are pulled out of damaged by appliance removal. Poor personal hygiene and careless removal of appliances may be a contributing factor. Shaving the peristomal skin with the blade razor is deemed to be one cause of foliculitis by some writers who recommend hair clapping with scissors

Prevention of Folliculitis :Clip or shave hair (Mustache trimmer is effective)
Dust affected area with Nystatin (antifungal powder) This is an antibiotic therefore should be used sparingly. (Contact Doctor or ET if condition persists after 2 applications. Nystatin may be purchased without a prescription)
Treatment :Teach patien the importance of hair clipping / trimmingat regular intervals to preven skin inection at base of the hair follicle, appliance with gentle skin barrier and moulable shallow convexity e.g. Curvex, Mouldable seal e.g. Eakin, Barrier wipe with no alcohol
4. Candida Albicans (Fungal Infection) Figure 3 ; Candida is normally found in the GI Tract, it is a yeast-like fungus that can cause an infection around the stoma. People with stomae are prone to Candida because area around stoma is warm and moist and covered. This infection may spread to the groins as this area may be moist.
Presents as redness and itching.
Treatment
Nystatin powder may be sprinkled on affected area as well as 3M No Sting spray
Use a cotton cover over pouch to keep area dry
Use hair dryer on low setting to dry area as well as cloth cover of pouch
5. Ulceration (Figure 4 ); peristomal skin ulceration can be caused by efflux from any tipe of stoma remainding in contact with the skin for too long, or by shearing of the skin through over frequent or incorrect removal of retention tape and appliance. Common causes ; The appliance is changed too often, Careless pouch removal, Leakage through an unsatisfactory seal between the faceplate and the skin, Exposed skin surrounding a retracted stoma, Seepage under the faceplate from abowel stomal spout with the orifice at or below skin level, An opening in the faceplate that is too large. The etiology :Hyperpigmentation probably due to ill fitting bag and faecal irritant


Treatment
Use mouldable seal with soft convex appliance.
Application of water soluble lingocaine (0,5%) in chlorhexidine to painfull denuded skin surfaces reduces the discomfort generated by application of skin protection agents containing isopropyl alcohol, for example skin sealant or protective paste. Leave for one minute then wipe away before applaying skin protection agents. A skin protection wipe that does not cause a stinging sensation when a contact with denuded skin is a available commercially.

C. Assessment tools for home care
Home care nursing is the provision of nursing care to acute, chronically ill and well clients of all ages in their homes while integrating community health nursing principles that focus on health promotion and on environmental, psychosocial, economic, cultural and personal health factors affecting an individual’s and family’s health status. For improve quality of live patient’s stoma in community.The most of important for ET nurse in community is needed a tool for asses patient’s stoma. Assesement of criteria are such as patient of activity, type stoma, viability of stoma, stomal height, construction, location, stoma shape, size, peristomal skin, stoma disorder, stoma surface, shape of abdomen, output stoma , education.6

CONCLUSION.
Improving and maintaining the integrity of peristomal skin is an important objective for both ostomy patients and ostomy care professionals. Peristomal skin integrity plays a fundamental role in the improvement of quality of life of a patient with an abdominal ostomy. Having a way to classify peristomal skin disorders provides a tool for an objective assessment that, in turn, offers a new guideline for the correct interpretation and diagnosis of skin disorders. Additionally, the pocket ruler guide for peristomal skin disorder classification enhances the practicability of the guidelines.
The quality of professional service always must be supported by scientific research and professional ethics. An objective classification system is fundamental to proper diagnosis and characterization of peristomal skin disorders, standardization of terminology, and incidence or prevalence studies. Finally, As a nurse we have to aware on early signs of peristomal skin complications during home care visit, so it is important to re-evaluate patient understanding and ability to perform both daily stoma care and peristomal care.

          PRUEBAS DE DETECCION DEL VIH        

¿en que consiste la prueba del vih?

La prueba del VIH es un sencillo análisis de sangre. Es gratuita, voluntaria y confidencialSe trata de una prueba del VIH específica Ningún análisis de sangre que se realice con otro fin detectará el virus: debe solicitarse específicamente la prueba del VIH.
El organismo tarda un tiempo, diferente en cada persona, en generar anticuerpos específicos frente al VIH. Hay personas que los tienen a las dos o tres semanas, sin embargo, estadísticamente se sabe que a las 8 semanas (2 meses) la gran mayoría de las personas (95%) ya los han generado. Para cubrir ese 5% que falta, se alarga el tiempo hasta 12 semanas (3 meses), momento en que se considera un negativo concluyente y definitivo. Lo de los 6 meses, o un año es un protocolo antiguo que no responde a las pruebas actuales.El protocolo sanitario actual, establece que a los 3 meses un resultado negativo del test de anticuerpos se considera concluyente y definitivo.Es cierto que existen casos especiales en los que el médico especialista podría recomendar repetirla a los 6 meses: en el caso de padecer enfermedades inmunodepresoras como el cáncer, el lupus…el estar tomando medicación inmunodepresora para evitar el rechazo de algún injerto o transplante de órganos, la radioterapia o la quimioterapia etc. son casos muy especiales que podrían en algún caso, retrasar la aparición de los anticuerpos.Si ninguno de los expuestos tiene relación con el paciente , se considera negativo y concluyente el resultado negativo obtenido a  los 3 meses. Sin embargo aquí en veneuzela aunque No existe posibilidad de positividad después de 3 meses. Se aconseja una nueva prueba a los 6 meses como parte de una contraprueba de seguridad. 



Tipos de exámenes para el VIH actualmente disponibles

La serología tradicional existe desde 1985 y es conocida como ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunoabsorbent Assay). El ELISA puede ser usado para varias enfermedades además del VIH, y es una técnica que permite la detección de anticuerpos específicos en la sangre. En este tipo de examen no se investiga directamente la presencia de virus, mas sí la existencia de anticuerpos contra el mismo. Existen otras metodologías además del ELISA para detectar anticuerpos contra el virus VIH, como el MEIA, EQL y ELFA y CMIA, pero el ELISA es el método más popular, por ello hablaremos del mismo.
El tiempo que transcurre entre el momento de la contaminación por un virus y la producción de anticuerpos suficientes para ser detectados en la serología es llamado de ventana inmunológica. Por lo tanto, cuando decimos que un examen tiene una ventana inmunológica de 3 meses, eso significa que el examen sólo dará positivo 3 meses después de que el paciente haya entrado en contacto con el determinado virus o bacteria.

En las últimas décadas, la serología para el VIH evolucionó mucho. La primera generación, usada en la década de 1980, demoraba hasta 6 meses para conseguir detectar hoy día estamos en la tercera y cuarta generación del ELISA, que son superiores a las generaciones antiguas por el hecho de identificar anticuerpos contra el VIH más precozmente.

  • Elisa de 3ª generación
El organismo tarda un tiempo, diferente en cada persona, en generar anticuerpos específicos frente al VIH.
Hay personas que los tienen a las dos o tres semanas, sin embargo, estadísticamente se sabe que a las 8 semanas (2 meses) la gran mayoría de las personas (95%) ya los han generado. Para cubrir ese 5% que falta, se alarga el tiempo hasta 12 semanas (3 meses), momento en que se considera un negativo concluyente y definitivo.


  • Elisa de 4ª generación o Prueba combinada
Actualmente, se realiza la llamada Elisa de 4ª generación o prueba combinada. Consiste en la detección, en la misma muestra, de los anticuerpos y del antígeno P24 del virus.Esta prueba, realizada a partir de la 3ª semana de la posible infección, permite en muchos casos la detección precoz de la presencia del VIH. Por tanto un resultado positivo, que siempre se ha de confirmar (generalmente con la Western Blot), permitiría el acceso al tratamiento de forma temprana.No obstante, un resultado negativo, aunque tiene bastante fiabilidad (80% / 85%), requiere la repetición de la prueba al concluir los 3 meses del periodo ventana, para que sea definitivo. En algunos países como Francia y el Reino Unido, la dan por definitiva al mes y medio (45 días).el antígeno P24, es una proteína existente en el virus VIH. El ELISA 4ª generación es, por lo tanto, un examen doble que busca anticuerpos y al propio virus. De este modo, la ventana inmunológica es mucho más corta y el examen logra detectar infecciones en menos de 4 semanas (en algunos casos en hasta 2 semanas).Las serologías actuales buscan la presencia de anticuerpos contra el VIH-1 (subtipo más común y agresivo) y VIH-2 (subtipo menos contagioso y menos agresivo).
  • prueba de antiguenos 4ta generacion: 
esta prueba consiste ne la deteccion del antigueno p24 proteína directa y principal del virus del vih que desencadena reacciones inmuologicas anticuerpos esta prueba es bastante fiable y en muchos casos permite la deteccion precoz del vih sin embargo  esta prueba solo detecta el antigueno p24 para que el negativo obtenido en esta prueba sea fiable y definitivo tiene que ser confirmado con un tes de anticuerpos concluido el periodo ventana de 3 meses 
  • PCR
Es una prueba de detección directa del virus. A partir de los 15 días de la exposición de riesgo, tiene una alta fiabilidad.Se trata de la demostración de genoma vírico mediante técnicas de biología molecular (PCR). Este método se reserva para situaciones especiales: estudios de variabilidad genética, diagnóstico de recién nacidos, screening de donantes, seguimiento de pacientes VIH positivo, etc.Sin embargo, como en los casos anteriores, no es concluyente y se debe hacer una prueba de detección de anticuerpos cuando hayan pasado las 12 semanas, para considerar el resultado negativo definitivo.Esto se debe a que en algunas ocasiones se han descrito falsos resultados, tanto negativos como positivos.
Esta prueba no se realiza habitualmente en la Sanidad Pública, excepto en los hospitales en casos muy concretos..
  • Pruebas rápidas
Son analíticas de detección de anticuerpos, que se pueden realizar en sangre, tejido gingival (saliva) y orina.En la actualidad, algunas de ellas son combinadas, detectan tanto los anticuerpos como el antígeno P24 (aunque no siempre).La rapidez de la prueba se refiere al hecho de que los resultados se obtienen en unos 30 minutos.Sin embargo, es importante saber que un resultado negativo obtenido antes de los 3 meses, no es concluyente y se debe repetir la prueba cuando hayan pasado las 12 semanas (3 meses), para considerarlo definitivo.Cualquier resultado positivo se debe confirmar con otra analítica más específica, generalmente la Western Blot. Hay distintas farmacéuticas que fabrican pruebas rápidas (no todas son exactamente iguales) y se venden en todo el mundo.

  • WESTERN BLOT 
esta prueba es obligatoria en terminos normativos generalmente se usa como prueba confirmatoria ante un resultado positivo (reactivo) obtenido por una prueba elisa de 3sera o 4tageneracion,El Western blot, o inmunoblot, es una técnica analítica usada para detectar proteínas específicas en una muestra determinada (una mezcla compleja de proteínas, como un extracto tisular). Mediante una electroforesis en gel se separan las proteínas atendiendo al criterio que se desee: peso molecular, estructura, hidrofobicidad, etc. Hay casi tantas posibilidades como tipos de electroforesis existen. Luego son transferidas a una membrana adsorbente (típicamente de nitrocelulosa o de PVDF) para poder buscar la proteína de interés con anticuerpos específicos contra ella.1 2 Finalmente, se detecta la unión antígeno-anticuerpo por actividad enzimática, fluorescencia entre otros métodos. De esta forma se puede estudiar la presencia de la proteína en el extracto y analizar su cantidad relativa respecto a otras proteínas.
Esta técnica es hoy en día imprescindible en varios campos de la biología, como la biología molecular, la bioquímica, la biotecnología o la inmunología. Existe toda una industria especializada en la venta de anticuerpos (monoclonales y policlonales) contra decenas de miles de proteínas diferentes.


¿Dónde se realiza el examen de detección del VIH?


El examen está disponible en establecimientos de salud de atención del sistema público, tales como: Establecimientos o Centros de atención primaria, Centros ambulatorios de especialidad, Centros de Enfermedades de Transmisión Sexual, (UNACESS) y Unidades o servicios clínicos de los Hospitales.

Asimismo, el examen se puede realizar en el sector privado en: Clínicas, laboratorios clínicos, Mutuales, Centros médicos, Hospitales clínicos universitarios y Hospitales institucionales.

Steve Wright: Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening. You are listening to the Revolution Health Radio Show. I'm your host, Steve Wright, co-author at SCDlifestyle.com. If you're struggling with digestive issues, poor sleep, high stress, maybe some mood swings or energy issues, or even chronic nasal congestion, I want to let you know that Chris has put together a program that's just for you. It's called 14Four.me. What this is is a 14-day healthy lifestyle reset program. It's for someone like you who's dealing with those issues, who wants to do the different pieces that Chris talks about that go into great health. I'm talking about diet, sleep, movement, and stress. Now, trying to tackle all these issues one at a time can be daunting, and so Chris has put them together in a step-by-step, hand-holding formula, where you can basically build these habits into your daily lifestyle. It's really helpful when starting healthy lifestyle habits that you have a program to follow, so that's what Chris did when he created 14Four.me. If you haven't checked it out yet, I would highly encourage it. With me is integrative medical practitioner, healthy skeptic, and New York Times bestselling author, Chris Kresser. Chris, how's your day going? Chris Kresser: It's going pretty good, especially because you sound like a big-shot radio host over there! Steve Wright: Well, you know, who knows? We could go on from here.
          MTS31 - Frances Arnold - Engineering Microbes        

Dr. Frances Arnold is a professor of Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry at the California Institute of Technology (most of us know it as Caltech).  Dr. Arnold’s research focuses on evolutionary design of biological systems, an approach she is currently applying to engineer cellulases and cellulolytic enzymes for manufacturing biofuels.

 This country’s energy security can look pretty bleak when you think about it: the need to address global warming, strife in oil-rich nations, and depletion of fossil fuels combine to paint an uncertain future, and although ethanol has a lot of friends in Iowa and D.C., ethanol isn’t going to end our energy woes.  In the future, our energy supply will probably be cobbled together from a number of different fuels and sources.  

Dr. Arnold is interested in engineering microbes that can grant us a biofuel that packs more of a caloric punch than ethanol.  She likes isobutanol, which can be converted into a fuel that’s more like the hydrocarbons we currently put into our fuel tanks.  To develop proteins that make the comounds she wants the way she wants, Arnold and her team take a gene that needs tweaking to do the job, introduce directed mutations into it, and select the mutant proteins that do the job best.  

In this interview, I talked with Dr. Arnold about how she got into alternative energy during the Carter administration (and got out again during the Reagan administration), what she sees in the P450 enzyme, and how she explains her work to people outside her field.


          MTS20 - Roberto Kolter - Bacillus Subtilis and Bacteria as Multicellular Organisms        

Roberto Kolter is a professor of Microbiology andMolecular Genetics at Harvard’s Medical School.  Dr. Kolter’s research interests are broad, but he says his eclectic program boils down to an interest in the ecology and evolution of microbes, bacteria in particular, and on how these forces operate at the molecular level.

Although he’s worked in a number of different systems, lately Dr. Kolter is spending a lot of time with Bacillus subtilis, a modest little bacterium that doesn’t get the headlines of a wicked pathogen like Salmonella or a useful industrial workhorse like yeast.  What it lacks in notoriety,  B. subtilis makes up for in usefulness.  According to Dr. Kolter, B. subtilis is an important source of industrial enzymes (as in laundry detergent) and, as a bacterial model, a prolific source of information on how some bacteria make spores and other diverse cell types.  This ability to form different kinds of cells is intriguing to Dr. Kolter: B. subtilis cells can wear any of a number of different hats, depending on what is needed at any given moment.  From spores to swimming cells to cells that wage chemical warfare on their neighbors, B. subtilis can do it all.  Dr. Kolter and his colleagues are looking at the how and the why of this multiplicity.

In the interview, Dr. Merry Buckley talks with Dr. Kolter about what he finds interesting about B. subtilis, why we should start thinking about bacteria as multicellular organisms, and how he got involved in producing a book of poetry (poetry about microbes, that is).

Dr. Kolter also provided the photography for the book Germ Stories by Arthur Kornberg. To see a full description and pricing details, click the ASM estore and pick up your copy today.


          MTS2 - Seth Darst - RNA polymerase        

Seth Darst is a professor of Molecular Biophysics at the Rockefeller University in New York city, where his research centers on RNA polymerase, the enzyme at the heart of a cell’s ability to make protein from a set of DNA instructions.

In this interview, I talk with Dr. Darst about how he got his start in research, whether computers will eventually be able to predict complex protein structures, and why eager young scientists shouldn’t miss their chance at postdoctoral training.

          Eight cold facts        
This week, New Scientist will be telling you all about the common cold: why researchers are treating it with new respect, and what the chances are that we will ever cure it (hint: humans could be walking on the moon again first). But in writing the article, I ran into a staggering amount of mis- (and myth-) information people swear to about colds. In fact some beliefs that had previously been dismissed may be true: for instance, "catching a chill" might make you more likely to succumb to a cold virus. Then again, some really are nonsense.

1. Colds are caused by a weakened immune system. NOT NORMALLY
Some people with perfectly robust immune systems get colds every winter. Others contract cold viruses but suffer nary a sniffle. Cold symptoms are caused by your immune reactions to viruses that infect your nose and throat - "stronger" reactions might even make you sicker. But really weak immunity can allow cold viruses to spread further, and kill.

2. Colds happen in winter because central heating dries out your nose. NO
Experiments show that once a cold virus gets in your nose humidity makes little difference. Inhaling steam may or may not help, but warming your nose to 43°C might, and if you have a rhinovirus, spraying your nose with acid (pH4) might help. Some think rhinoviruses, which are related to the enteroviruses that cause diarrhoea, are gut bugs that lost their acid tolerance so can no longer get past the stomach. But some do both: hence, the combined misery of "stomach flu".

3. Stress causes colds. YES
If you get a cold virus in your nose, you will become infected and develop symptoms, or not, depending on your immune system, which is affected by stress and emotions. Colds are more likely if you recently had a big life event - job loss, death in the family, marriage - and if you were poor as a toddler, because your immune system triggers inflammation reactions more readily. If you are usually happy and calm you may be three times less likely to get sick than if you are anxious, hostile and depressed. And if you are the famous American composer Leonard Bernstein, the symptoms disappear when you're absorbed in conducting Mahler's fifth symphony, only to return for the curtain call.

4. Feed a cold and starve a fever. MAYBE
Colds rarely give adults fevers. Other diseases that do, such as malaria, might get better faster if you stop eating minerals and vitamins that the germ needs even more than you do. But the muscle pain of even mild colds is caused by muscle wasting, as the body recycles proteins into defensive chemicals. Eating more protein instead could help, and hurt less. So between its warming effect on your upper respiratory tract (and your mood), and the protein, it's true: chicken soup should help.

5. Blowing your nose helps clear out the virus. NO
Opinion is divided as to whether a runny nose or indeed any cold symptoms actually eliminate viruses: relieving symptoms with painkillers, antihistamines and decongestants (not antibiotics!) doesn't seem to hurt and more of it could save lots of money in lost work and useless doctor's visits. But a blocked nose is usually down to dilated blood vessels, not snot, and blowing won't help. Blowing your nose forcefully however can drive viruses and inflammatory substances into your sinuses and spread the misery.

6. Green snot means you need antibiotics. NO
Mucus turns yellow or green whenever you have a bad respiratory infection, viral or bacterial. The colour comes from myeloperoxidase, an enzyme in white blood cells which uses an iron-containing haem molecule, which is green, to catalyse chemical reactions that kill germs.

7. Large doses of Vitamin C prevent colds. NOT UNLESS YOU RUN MARATHONS OR WORK OUT IN THE SNOW
This idea, first put about by Nobel laureate Linus Pauling in the 1970s, has been repeatedly disproved but refuses to die. Still, there may be a bit to it: last year a review of research to date, found vitamin C had little effect on most people, but it halved the risk of getting colds for marathon runners, skiers and soldiers on subarctic exercises. It does not cure colds. And while we're here, the herb Echinacea may shorten colds a bit but it has side effects and doesn't prevent colds. Zinc lozenges work better.

8. Red wine helps. YES
Finally, some good news. Contrary to some people's optimistic beliefs, red wine doesn't cure colds, though it may (initially) dull the pain. But a study in Spain found that people who drank more than 14 glasses of red wine a week (but not spirits or beer) cut their risk of getting a cold by almost half. ¡Salud!

          How To Lose Those Man Boobs        


Embarassed By Man boobs?
Feeling Fat & Ugly?
Want To Gain Back That "Shirtless Confidence?
Want To Develop Ripped Abs?

Go Here Now for How To Lose Those Man Boobs

The question, How To Lose Those Man Boobs. Hard to believe but man boobs are a humiliating reality for many men today. These men are looking for a solution to this humiliating problem. The embarassment that it causes can be very painful, especially during the warm weather times.

There are two components that cause breast swelling in men: imbalances in estrogen levels and excess body fat. Estrogen can fuel the growth of breast tissue. Left untreated, this particular type of breast tissue can become very solid and painful to the touch.

Excess body fat, on the other hand, will not be rock solid or painful. Instead, it will just be a cosmetic nightmare. How can you tell if your man boobs are due to tissue growth or excess body fat? Very simply. Just squeeze the area around your nipple. If the area feels as though there is a hard ball under your nipple, then you likely have tissue growth. If it is soft and pliable, then you have excess fat on your chest. In many cases, you will have a combination of the two.

The goods news is that there is a solution.

First, let's address the estrogen levels. Aromatase is an enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen in the body. Needless to say, we want this conversion to take place as little as possible. What can we do about this?

Eat plenty of cruciferous vegetables daily. Cruciferous vegetables such as brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage contain a substance named indole-3-carbinol (I3C). This substance has been shown to positively affect estrogen metabolism. In other words, they block the estrogen receptors in your body. This reduces the negative effects of the testosterone to estrogen conversion that occurs naturally in our bodies.

In addition to the natural estrogen in our bodies, there are many environmental estrogens that should be avoided as much as possible. Here are seven ways to avoid common substances that can increase estrogen levels:

1. Avoid all pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Wash all produce well to get rid of the pesticides.

2. Have a good water filter for your source of water.

3. Use organic, whole foods and purchase hormone free meats and dairy products where possible.

4. Do not microwave food in plastic containers, and especially avoid the use of plastic wrap to cover food for microwaving. (The estrogens found in plastics have been shown to leech into foods and liquids when heated to high temperatures.)

5. Use glass or ceramics whenever possible to store food.

6. Do not leave plastic containers, especially your drinking water, in the sun.

7. If a plastic water container has heated up significantly, throw it away - do not drink from it.

Now that we have our estrogen levels under control, let's address the excess chest fat. No matter what some people say, you can't target the fat on your chest specifically. Instead you must follow a program that emphasizes total body fat loss. You need to follow a sound nutritional program, perform a well-designed resistance training program and engage in high-intensity cardio activities.

The How To Get Ripped Abs system is the most-effective program you can do to lose that excess body fat. How To Get Ripped Abs does not include long boring cardio workouts, and lame circuits that don't work. Instead it emphasizes precise intervals, with unique chest exercises that help shape and chisel your pecs.

You don't have to endure a life sentence of man boobs. You can: Be confident in the bedroom. Feel comfortable in the gym locker room. Take off your shirt with pride on the beach. Women love a chiseled chest.

          BEETOLOGY PRESENTS 5 HEALTHY REASONS TO DRINK YOUR BEETS        






NATURE’S SUPERFOOD PACKS A NUTRITIONAL POWERHOUSE INTO DELICIOUS COLD-PRESSED BLENDS



  • Beetology Craft Beverages, in Five Varieties, Answer the Call for Healthy Farm-to-Table Refreshment
  • Beetology Helps Re-fuel, Re-energize & Refresh 
  • Studies Indicate Beet Juice has Been Shown to improve:  Blood pressure, Energy Liver function, Eye and Skin health
I have to say I do eat my beets occasionally. Beetology Craft Beverages are so delicious. There are so many great reasons to drink a Beetology. Read all the reasons listed below. 
Bayonne, NJ, JULY 13, 2017– It’s a good bet that our ancient ancestors sat down to an infinitely simpler and more nutritious lunch than the tuna sandwiches and chips on our plates today. They used whatever ingredients nature brought their way, “straight up,” with minimal processing if any. And they discovered that certain foods from Earth’s pantry had properties that somehow seemed to make life a little better.
Today, of course, we know that different foods contain specific cocktails of nutrients associated with almost every aspect of wellness. And while superfoods have been around for ages, the demand for easy, tasty ways to embrace their powers has never been greater. Moreover, sophisticated consumers are interested in ingredients they can pronounce, served as close to farm-to-table as possible. But not everyone has time to grow and prepare a healthy diet from scratch.
That’s where Beetology’s new line of craft beverages comes in. These sweet, organic, cold-pressed juices are made from nothing but beets and a handful of other 100% natural, good-for-you ingredients like ginger, veggies, and fruit.  Beetology has created a delicious way to drink your beets for optimal health benefits.  According to many sources, beets may improve your health in the following ways.


1. Lower Your Blood Pressure
Drinking beet juice may help to lower blood pressure in a matter of hours. One study found that drinking one glass of beet juice lowered systolic blood pressure by an average of 4-5 points.3
The benefit likely comes from the naturally occurring nitrates in beets, which are converted into nitric oxide in your body. Nitric oxide, in turn, helps to relax and dilate your blood vessels, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure.

2. Boost Your Stamina
If you need a boost to make it through your next workout, beet juice may again prove valuable. Those who drank beet juice prior to exercise were able to exercise for up to 16 percent longer. The benefit is thought to also be related to nitrates turning into nitric oxide, which may reduce the oxygen cost of low-intensity exercise as well as enhance tolerance to high-intensity exercise.

3. Fight Inflammation
Beets are a unique source of betaine, a nutrient that helps protects cells, proteins, and enzymes from environmental stress. It's also known to help fight inflammation, protect internal organs, improve vascular risk factors, enhance performance, and likely help prevent numerous chronic diseases.

4. Anti-Cancer Properties
The powerful phytonutrients that give beets their deep crimson color may help to ward off cancer. Research has shown that beetroot extract reduced multi-organ tumor formations in various animal models when administered in drinking water, for instance, while beetroot extract is also being studied for use in treating human pancreatic, breast, and prostate cancers.

5. Rich in Valuable Nutrients and Fiber
Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.

6. Detoxification Support
The betalin pigments in beets support your body's detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins are bound to other molecules so they can be excreted from your body. Traditionally, beets are valued for their support in detoxification and helping to purify your blood and your liver.

Beets are also “a goldmine of health-boosting nutrients that you may not get anywhere else,” according to Health.com. And while scientists have yet to find the key to eternal youth, they’ve long known that beets contain antioxidants like lycopene, which boosts the production of collagen – associated with firmer, younger-looking skin.

“Beets are the new pomegranate,” said Charles Herzog, Chief Beetologist and VP of New Business Development at Kayco, producer of Beetology beverages. “Chefs, foodies, health-conscious folks, and even athletes have been tapping into the versatile beet in creative new ways.” Even Martha Stewart is getting into the act, he added. “Her latest cookbook has a Chocolate Beet Cake! She says pureed beets made it extra moist and not overly sweet.”

Consumers can feel good about serving Beetology anytime, anywhere. Every grab-and-go bottle of Beetology is 100% non-GMO, U.S.D.A. Certified Organic, and Certified Fair Trade. Each variety is non-soy, non-dairy, and certified kosher, with no preservatives, additives, artificial colors, or flavors.

  Beetology is a great way to refuel after a long hike, hard work out or a great yoga class.
Delicious, refreshing Beetology comes in five tantalizing blends:
  • Beet + Lemon + Ginger
  • Beet + Veggie
  • Beet + Tropical Fruit
  • Beet + Berry
  • Beet + Cherry

          Patient leaving Hospital against Medical Advice (LAMA). No negligence can be attributed to Doctors        

Patient leaving Hospital against Medical Advice (LAMA). No negligence can be attributed to Doctors (Patient)Leaving Against Medical Advise, popularly also known as LAMA, is the scenario which might be seen in various hospitals routinely. This Judgment is a lesson for patients and for Doctors as well, as it yet again emphasises the importance of proper treatment and maintaining the record. Case details – TARLOK CHAND MATTU V/s. M/S. VASAL HOSPITAL & ANR. REVISION PETITION NO. 2369 OF 2016. Decided on 31 Jan 2017 Allegations of the Complainant in short : 1. The Patient in this case i.e. the wife of the complainant, was admitted in the Hospital and was shifted to ICU. Certain tests worth Rs.1900/- were conducted, but reports were not shown to the Complainant nor the ailment details were shared with him. The complainant, who is a handicapped, had to run from pillar to post for seeking medical assistance. 2. The Complainant and the Patient were pushed out from the Hospital in a very inhuman manner. The Ambulance was also arranged by the Complaint at his expense and not by the Hospital and on way the Patient passed away. 3. Hence the Complaint was filed for Rs. 10,50,000/- Patient leaving Hospital against Medical Advice (LAMA). No negligence can be attributed to Doctors Defense of Hospital : 1. The patient with symptoms of fever, nausea, body ache, vomiting and weakness was admitted in ER and was attended by the emergency doctors and was treated properly. 2. After certain tests, it was diagnosed that the Patient had Leucopenia (Low White Cells), Thrombocytopenia (Low Platelets Count), High SGOT, SGPT (Liver Enzymes) and viral fever with hepatitis. 3. Due to then existing epidemic of dengue fever in the city, a provisional diagnosis of dengue fever was made. 4. However after few hours, the patient’s condition started worsening, may be due to Dengue Shock Syndrome (DSS). The patient’s attendants were also informed about her condition and the treatment given. In this course, the patient left against the Medical Advice. However, both the lower forums on evidence, dismissed the Complaint and hence the Revision was filed in national Commission. Patient leaving Hospital against Medical Advice (LAMA). No negligence can be attributed to Doctors Held : The National Commission after perusing the evidence on record and after hearing of the parties on merits and relying upon landmark judgments of Hon. Supreme Court, dismissed the Revision and observed as : 1. The Complainant failed to establish as to exactly what the Doctor ought to have done. There was no iota of evidence to buttresses the allegation that the patient was not given proper treatment. 2. All the necessary treatment to prevent the Dengue Shock Syndrome (DSS), which is a common complication of such viral fever, was given. 3. If the Patient had left against medical advice and there is no material on record to establish that the care, which ought to have been taken, has not been taken, no negligence can be attributed to Doctors. The Doctors colleagues must have faced such situation at least once in their practice. As it is said “Nor record is no defense and poor record is poor defense”, this case exactly emphasises this aspect. If the patient is not satisfied with the treatment, he has every right to change the Doctor / Hospital and in such cases, proper documentation, consents are essential, that may in turn protect Doctors if the cases are filed.

          Dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup Including List of Products        
Look at the list of ingredients on one of your drinks or products. I guarantee you will most likely find High Fructose Corn Syrup as one of the ingredients.

HFCS is now commonly found in almost all processed foods, including:
  • soft drinks (Coca-Cola, Pepsi)
  • fruit juices (Snapple, Ocean Spray Cranberry) and canned fruits
  • breakfast cereals (Kellogg’s cornflakes)
  • ice cream and dairy products (Dreyer’s, Yoplait yogurts)
  • cookies and crackers (Nabisco Ritz crackers)
  • soups and sauces (Campbell’s vegetable soup)
  • condiments and salad dressings
  • baking products and baked goods
  • candy bars and gum (PowerBar)
  • jams, jellies and syrup (Smucker’s grape jelly)
  • cough syrups and low-fat diet foods (Robitussin, Vicks)

Food manufacturers embraced High Fructose Corn Syrup because it is cheaper than sucrose (table sugar) and mixes well with a variety of products, including beverages, baked goods, jams and jellies, candies, and dairy products.

Excess fructose intake has been associated with adverse health effects such as:
metabolic syndrome, elevated triglyceride levels, hypertension, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, excess uric acid levels (associated with gout), and elevated levels of advanced glycation end products (linked with aging and complications of diabetes).


Excess fructose intake may contribute to hypertension. High blood pressure is a well-known comorbidity associated with obesity, hyperinsulinemia, and hyperlipidemia

Reasons why you should avoid HCFS:
  • Travels straight to the liver where it is metabolized to fat. Fructose converts to fat more than any other sugar.
  • Contributes to the development of diabetes and tissue damage. A recent study presented at the 2007 national meeting of the American Chemical Society found new evidence that soft drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup contains high levels of reactive compounds that have been shown by others to trigger cell and tissue damage that cause diabetes.
  • Does not stimulate insulin production or enhance, leptin, a hormone involved in appetite regulation. Because insulin and leptin act as key signals in regulating how much food you eat, this suggests that dietary fructose may contribute to increased food consumption and weight gain.
  • Contains no enzymes, vitamins or minerals; instead, it takes micro-nutrients from your body. The fructose in HFCS is different from the natural fructose you get when you eat a small piece of whole fruit, which contains the nutrients needed for your body to assimilate sugar.
  • Increases your triglyceride and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels. Triglycerides are the chemical form of fat found in foods and in your body. Studies show that elevated blood levels of triglycerides increases your risk of heart disease.
  • Is almost always made from genetically modified corn, which may increase your risk of developing corn food allergies. The problem with corn allergies are that once you have a corn allergy from GMO corn you will have an allergy to even healthy organic corn products.
  • Corn based products such as HFCS have also been shown to increase osteoporosis, tooth decay, anemia and osteoarthritis.
  • Fructose interacts with birth control pills and can elevate insulin levels in women on the pill.
  • Fructose inhibits copper metabolism leading to a deficiency of copper, which can cause increased bone fragility, anemia, ischemic heart disease and defective connective tissue formation among others.
If you want to lose weight and drastically improve your health, stop drinking soda and processed fruit juices. These beverages are sweetened with almost eight teaspoons of fructose per serving. Drink pure water instead and you will be well on your way to improved health. You should also severely limit your consumption of food that contains high fructose corn syrup.
I advise you to check the ingredients when you are shopping.

Here is a list of products that contain HFCS. **PLEASE NOTE** This list can change. The manufacturers of these products can change their ingredients at any time. I will try to keep up with the list. If you notice a product that has changed, please contact me. If you have products that can be added to the list, please contact me. worldevolved at gmail dot com.

          New Research Advocates Tea Is Healthier Than Modern Drinks for Children        

Researchers say polyphenols within the tea suppress or kill the bacterial growth as well as to prevent an enzyme accountable for transforming carbohydrates into the tacky coating plaque that usually stick to teeth. Tea also avoid some plaque germs from clumping together, which promote the bacteria cleaning.

Fairhope, AL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/13/2015 -- By the 90's the number of young kids drinking tea had dropped to around a third and nowadays the NDNS (National Diet and Nutrition Survey doesn't even record it.

As children's' tea intake has declined, their waistlines have broadened. The latest Health Study for Britain discovered that one out of three kids aged 10 to 11 were overweight or obese and over a fifth of kids going reception classes were pudgy.

Tea, in comparison, is low-acidic and a natural source of fluoride, which strengthens gums and teeth, also medical tests show tea may also help prevent gum infection and cavities.

Increased intake of sweet beverages isn't the only reason behind the obesity crisis, but several specialists think their popularity is an essential factor to unhealthy weight in both adults and kids, that's why some are now calling to get a health tax to control sales.

However, a study just published within the Journal of PHN (Public-Health Nutrition) confirms that the moderate consumption of caffeine isn't just safe for kids but a couple of cups of tea each day can increase brain-power and sporting efficiency.

          Resent Research: Chamomile Tea Can Regulate Blood Sugar, Prevents and Manages Diabetes        

A recently available research within the Journal of Agricultural & Food Biochemistry discovers that chamomile can greatly help in stabilizing blood sugar levels and control Diabetes.

Fairhope, AL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2015 -- The importance of controlling body sugar is obvious, because stabilizing blood sugar levels can avoid several health issues, one of which is diabetes that happens because of years of unstable blood sugar levels. Luckily, for many people it's inside their capacity to manage their blood sugar by staying active and eating a health and balanced diet. Still, most people don't know that blood sugar can also be stabilized by drinking chamomile tea.

The scientists at the Toyama University in Japan and the Institute of Grassland and Ecological Research in the UK have analyzed the result of chamomile tea on diabetic rodents. Nearly half of the rodents were given a dosage of chamomile extract for 3 weeks. Another group of diabetic rodents was given an ordinary diet without any inclusion of chamomile.

The researchers noticed that after chamomile extract was given to the rodents, a smaller quantity of glucose was converted into sorbitol (a sugar liquor). Extra sorbitol may cause harm to the eyes, kidneys and nerve cells. This enzyme mainly accountable for this sort of harm in diabetics were also controlled within the chamomile rodents. The rodents who were given chamomile extract also confirmed a general reduction in blood-glucose as compared to other rodents.

The research stated that there's a definite link between everyday usage of chamomile tea and avoiding the development of hyperglycemia and diabetes. Still, more research needs to be done to find out how efficient this therapy could be, but to anybody trying to find an all-natural method of controlling blood sugar levels, the outcomes of the research are far more than enough support to begin drinking chamomile tea.

For diabetics, regulating blood-sugar is extremely important for overall health, however the fact is, even non-diabetics can take advantage of sustaining regular blood sugar. Blood sugar level shifts are related to exhaustion, sugar urges and insulin-resistance, with other symptoms.
