Spend ten minutes and listen to Dr Marvin Anderson as he speaks with Dr Sandra Cabot about his extensive experience with autistic children and nutritional therapies he has used with very good results. This 4th video of the 4 part series provides valuable insight on how nutrition and nutritional supplements work to ward off and reduce inflammation. Attention is primarily directed to the gastrointestinal tract and on the now-demonstrated connection with experimental animals between damaging inflammation in the intestinal tract and inflammation in the brain. Oftentimes, this inflammation is caused by food intolerances (especially disaccharide carbohydrates and gluten-containing foods such as wheat, rye, barley , and some oats) in concert with intestinal overgrowth of harmful bacteria, yeast (as Candida), viruses, and parasites which thrive on a damaged intestinal lining (mucosa). Dr. Anderson's training included graduation with honors from the University of Notre Dame. He graduated from Georgetown University School of Medicine. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons (Harlem Hospital Center), and is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Clinical Nutrition. He was appointed a Research Associate in the Department of Microbiology at Columbia University and also in the Carcinogenesis Branch of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD. Dr. Anderson was the Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School (Henry Ford Hospital campus). He is the author of the book "AUTISM -- Prevention Care and Management" which is available as a paperback and e-book from Amazon.com The book is also available in Australia from www.cabothealth.com.au Visit Dr Anderson's website for further information - www.autismatabbasplace.com Additional information on liver health and nutrition can be found at www.liverdoctor.com and www.sandracabot.com

"Hold on. Be strong. Can you feel it getting better?" These words are the chorus of the original song "Hold On, " written and performed by Greg Lizee, Ph.D., associate professor in MD Anderson's Melanoma Medical Oncology department. The song's message is simple: Hope. It's about positivity, patience and faith -- faith that things will get better. You have to hold on through the bad times to reach the good. The song is dedicated to cancer survivors, anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, from the time of diagnosis and treatment through the remaining years of life, as well as family members and caregivers who have been affected by the diagnosis. According to the American Cancer Society, there are now more than 13.7 million cancer survivors in the United States, and each one had to hold on during their cancer journey in order for things to get better. The full-length version of 'Hold On' is now available for download through iTunes and Amazon. A majority of the proceeds will be donated directly to fund cancer immunotherapy research at MD Anderson. iTunes: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=649592346 Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Hold-On/dp/B00CUNFP46 Learn the origins of "Hold On" from Dr. Lizee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EawEs2HTAGw

Researchers in Japan say playing arcade video games may be the answer to preventing senility. They say the hand-eye coordination and fast responses required to play the games help stimulate the brain. Having lots of fun in a games arcade. But these Japanese senior citizens are not harking back to their childhoods. They are part of a joint research project between the Kaikaya Elderly Day Care Centre and the Kyushu University Hospital that claims playing arcade video games might be a good way to prevent senility in old age. Miyuki Takahashi, a nurse at the day care centre, says it's the reactionary effect game machines have that stimulates the brain. "They must hurry up to hit or step on their targets and because of that, their cerebral blood flow increases. In reality, solving mathematics quickly has nothing to do with preventing senility. Playing video games involves the brain so much more, so we believe this is a much better exercise." The machines have been designed specifically for elderly users - built to be lower, to have more grips and to enable wheelchair bound individuals to play too. They are the result of constant feedback from a team led by Doctor Shinichiro Takasugi from the Kyushu University Hospital, to whom Kaikaya provides its data. Previous results indicated an improvement of physical mobility of the subjects over seven months of playing arcade games, but now researchers are convinced the effects of interactive exercise also leads to increased blood flow in the frontal cortex of the brain. 83 year-old Yaeko Sasaki could not walk when she came to the facility three years ago. "I had never played with games before. But I came to Kaikaya and I discovered them, and realised they were good for the muscles at my age, so now I play a lot," she says. Takahashi says they had to overcome many hurdles to get the elderly people to play games on a constant basis, which is important to study their progress. She says not being able to attract the attention of elderly users long enough was the primary reason previous attempts, dating as far back as 1999, had not given convincing results. "This is a generation that may have experienced the war. So they do not associate themselves with games, let alone playing with games. For them, game machines are only toys and they think of them more as harmful things that distract from work. Our challenge was to try and come up with ways to lower the threshold," she says. Staff at the day care centre record game scores and put up the results for all to see. They say this cultivates incentives to continue playing the brain-simulating games with other users. Limiting the risks of falling over and sustaining injuries are important, because they are one of the main reasons elderly people become confined to a bed and stop moving - which in itself can lead to senility. Takahashi says that most elderly people harbour a fear of becoming completely dependent and confined to a bed, so another incentive is a regular health course explaining the connection between playing games and staying healthy. It's been a year since these strategies and better monitoring methods were introduced. The centre's "small experiment," as Kaikaya President, Yoshiaki Kawamura describes it, is finally showing some promising results. "The number of elderly people is only going to increase, and a generation that has grown up with games will become elderly soon. The centre of consumption will indeed come from this generation, so it is indispensable to answer to this need with the according services and products," he says. University of Tokyo professor, Akira Baba agrees that there is increasing potential for the use of video games in the medical sector and beyond.

We acquired a C-MAC on loan today, to play with for a while. We have had a GlideScope on loan for quite some time, but that model lacks the ability to easily record the video - the C-MAC does it direct to an SD card. Lacking a suitable patient to try it out on, I decided to spray myself with a little local and have a look-see...

Each year the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation holds their Annual Western Round Up event that celebrates and honors oncology families, both past and present. 2013 marked the 19 year, with the help of Miracles for Kids and National Charity League Juniors Newport Beach, PCRF hosted over 400 people, including 100+ critically ill children, their families, and several hundred donors and supporters of all three organizations. This western themed picnic set in the scenic location of Oak Canyon Park provides these children with a safe, fun environment where they can enjoy themselves during a very trying period in their lives. With the help of volunteers we are able to create an opportunity for the kids to experience a care-free day to enjoy the many normal facets of childhood they don't get to experience every day. With activities from bounce houses, fishing, pony rides, a reptile show, carnival rides and games, arts and crafts, face painting, raffles and a dove release ceremony, attendees are able to appreciate the excitement of the outdoors -- far away from the walls of a hospital room. This is by far our most favorite event each year, and we are grateful for the support of the many volunteers and donors that made this year's event possible.
