Short Circuit Ion Channels Cause Pain

  New research shows that the pain signal may be simply an "electrical leak" from an ion channel.  As previously written there is a connection between the opening and closing of ion channels and electrical polarity charges.  The new finding by a team of scientists at KU Leuven indicates the actual pain message is electrical and is short circuited due to chemical changes in the ion channels.  The ongoing research is showing the chemical and physical relationship of pain and electrical polarities.

Weight Loss Supplements

    Weight loss supplements and weight loss vitamins are becoming more important in disease and injury prevention.  Many knee replacement procedures are not a result of the knee joint actually failing but more of prolonged stress on the joint due to extra weight supported by the joint.   Often the knee replacement surgery can be prevented by simply relieving the physical demands on the joint.  Even being overweight for knee joint replacement has some benefits.  The muscles supporting the joint are stronger due to the weight increasing the muscle bulk and strength over time.  Remove the weight and the musculature still remains.

     There is a plethora of products and advice about what works to "lose weight" and many are not supported by credentialed research.   Below are 4 supplements and 1 medicine reported on  by WebMD.

List Of Herbs For Pain Print E-mail

 

Pain-relieving Herbs

    Historically herbs, being known as "useful weeds", have been used for pain control.  Herb tinctures, creams, teas, herbs ingested in foods are primarily indicated to be used for pain.  The pharmaceutical industry tries to find the natural botanical herbs that are being used for pain control and model synthetically the compounds found for a marketable pain control drug.   Even today in many parts of the world certain societies are dependent upon using herbs medicinally simply because they do not have access, or money, to purchase synthetic drugs.  A chronic pain patient, or a patient who was recently injured, should consider as part of their nutrition the addition of fresh or dried herbs to the diet.  

   The list below is a very small part of the herb plants used for pain control.  Many, if not most, topicals use capsicum ( makes the peppers hot), or menthol (mint oil) as the primary ingredient in the topical pain relieving gels.  Capsicum isused for heat therapy and mint for cold therapy, depending on the process of inflammation going on.

    This video by Dr. Ross explains how some of the "cleansing diets" can or can not be beneficial and why.   He cautions to use the information supplied and tailor it to your specifics.   As is our mantra so often on nutrition, many times it's not the new foods you eat that help you, but the simple elimination of certain known bad foods that bring about healthy living and weight loss.   Garden or walk each day and healthy living becomes just part of the routine to staying fit and disease free.

   Are The Ingredients Of The Paleo Diet the Magic, or Is It What Is Not Eaten?

     The Paleo, or Caveman, diet is followed by many looking to lose weight, rectify digestive disorders, and to maintain good health and prevent illnesses.   One of the premises behind the diet is the use of food staples that were used by early human ancestors and those ingredients, because our body is accustomed to the foods, will be able to digest easier and keep us healthy.   With the advent of better food storage and preparation, refrigeration, mobility of food all over the earth,  we've added ingredients in those processes that our body has not evolved to for digestion.   Humans, like all evolutionary creatures, evolve over time to adapt to the environment and the adaptive process enables all living creatures to continue to live and propogate, that including our digestive system.

Foods To Prevent Hypothroidism Print E-mail

 

 

    Often we can use our daily food intake to avoid illness as many believe the best "medicine cabinet" is found in your garden or produce cabinet in your refrigerator.   Hypothroidism is often referred to as the most undiagnosed disease in the U.S. and menopausal age women tend to be more prone to it.   If you suffer from lethargy, overweight or recurring episodes of depression then you may want to see your dietician and doctor to rule out hypothroidism.   The below guide is intended to help you choose foods that will minimize the occurrence and help you stay healthy.  

   There is some concern that cooking may reduce the chemical aspects of goitrogenic foods you see listed below however the term "cooking" is relative to boiling, baking, parbroiling so use good judgment in determing the best preparatory mehods for your menu.
