A fungus among us may tip the body toward developing asthma. There’s mounting evidence that early exposure to microbes can protect against allergies and asthma (SN Online: 7/20/16). But “lo and behold, some fungi seem to put kids at risk for asthma,” microbiologist Brett Finlay said February 17 at a news conference during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Infants whose guts harbored a particular kind of fungus — a yeast called Pichia — were more likely to develop asthma than babies whose guts didn’t have the fungus, Finlay reported. Studies in mice and people suggest that exposure to some fungi can both trigger and exacerbate asthma, but this is the first work linking asthma to a fungus in the gut microbiome of infants. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/common-fungus-may-raise-asthma-risk http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

According to a new study, African-American children who experience discrimination are at a greater risk of having asthma. One in 10 children in the United States have asthma. But the condition disproportionately affects African-American and Latino children more than white children. Dr. Luisa N. Borrell said in a press release, "Discrimination is a common and everyday experience for minority populations in America. People can be exposed to it at the individual and society levels. This constant stress gets embodied into our biology or DNA to change our bodies' responses to diseases and medical treatments. Our findings support this biological embodiment for asthma and its control among African-American children and among low-SES [socio-economic status] Mexican-American children." http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/04/20/Discrimination-linked-to-increased-pediatric-asthma-rates/6711492709188/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

9, 2016 -- Insomnia is common in adults with asthma and tied to worse asthma control and other health problems, a new study finds. University of Pittsburgh researchers found that 37 percent of adults with asthma also had significant insomnia. Those with insomnia had worse lung function. Insomnia was also linked to a reduced asthma-specific quality of life. People with asthma and trouble sleeping had more depression and anxiety symptoms, the study found. They also said that evaluation and treatment of insomnia should be considered for people with asthma. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/12/09/Study-finds-link-between-insomnia-and-asthma/7381481299762/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Allergic Inflammation and Asthma Possibly linked to Pseudomonas Bacteria Could some cases of asthma actually be caused by an allergic reaction to a common environmental bacteria? New research findings published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology suggests that this is a possibility. In a research report appearing in the February 2012 print issue, researchers show a link between common environmental bacteria and airway inflammation. Specifically, their research suggests that some strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa cause white blood cells to produce very high levels of histamine, which in turn leads to inflammation, a hallmark symptom of asthma. In this five minute interview with Dr. George Caughey, M.D. Chief, Pulmonary/Critical Care/Sleep Medicine Section San Francisco VA Medical Center and Professor of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine we discuss the key studies findings, potential treatment options and laboratory test for Pseudomonas Bacteria.

Story highlightsDrugs used for depression and urinary incontinence had the highest risk for new-onset dementiaAnticholinergics used for gastrointestinal and respiratory issues did not have an increased dementia risk, study found (CNN)Many older adults know that long-term use of certain medications can negatively affect cognition and increase one's risk of dementia. But a new study suggests that some classes of anticholinergic drugs -- particularly those used to treat depression, Parkinson's and urinary incontinence -- carry a higher risk than others. Anticholinergic drugs function by blocking the effects of acetylcholine, a chemical released by nerve cells to send signals to other nerves and muscles. They are prescribed to 20% to 50% of older adults in the United States to treat a variety of neurological, psychiatric, gastrointestinal, respiratory and muscular conditions, according to a 2009 study. In the UK, 34% to 48% of older adults take them, another study found.The new study, published Wednesday in the British Medical Journal, looked at the risk of new-onset dementia among nearly 350,000 older adults in the United Kingdom. The researchers found that people who used certain types of anticholinergics, such as those used to treat depression, Parkinson's and urinary incontinence, for a year or more had about a 30% increased risk of developing dementia down the road. But those individuals taking other classes of anticholinergics -- including those used for asthma and gastrointestinal issues -- were not at an increased risk of developing dementia compared with matched controls, the study found. Read More"Previous studies had really only said that anticholinergics were associated with dementia incidence," said George Savva, researcher of health sciences at the University of East Anglia and a lead author on the study, in a news briefing. "But we broke it down by class, which is where our study really has its novelty and power."Common over-the-counter drugs can hurt your brainThe study relied on data from from the UK's Clinical Practice Research Database to identify 40,770 patients aged 65 to 99 who were diagnosed with dementia between April 2006 and July 2015. Researchers compared how many daily doses of anticholinergic drugs these patients had been prescribed between four and 20 years earlier with a control group of almost 300,000 matched individuals. "In total, there were 27 million prescription events that we were looking at over that period," Savva said. "And we found that about 9% of our (dementia) cases had taken anticholinergics in the past, compared to about 6% of our controls."This means those patients with a new dementia diagnosis had significantly more exposure to anticholinergic medications during the study period than those without dementia, according to Savva. Specifically, those anticholinergics used for depression (e.g. amitriptyline), urinary incontinence (e.g. oxybutynin) and Parkinson's disease (e.g. procyclidine) were associated

This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is a life-threatening condition commonly caused by years of smoking. Doctors say that over time the damage interferes with the natural exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the lungs. COPD is not curable but treatment can extend a patient's life. Doctors often treat it with steroids. Now, a study shows that low doses of the medicine given by mouth are equal to, or better than, a heavy dose administered into the blood.Researchers studied patients treated at four hundred hospitals in two thousand six and two thousand seven. The patients received steroids either intravenously or by mouth. The study found that those who received lower doses of steroids by mouth spent less time in the hospital. Also, their risk of side effects such as glaucoma, high blood pressure and edema, or swelling in the legs, was reduced. Peter Lindenauer from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, led the study. The findings are in the Journal of the American Medical Association.The World Health Organization estimates that more than two hundred million people have been found to have COPD. Most live in low and middle income countries. COPD blocks airflow in the lungs. Patients have to think about their breathing. They also have to exercise. And they have to learn to calm themselves, especially when they are short of breath. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis, as well as asthmatic bronchitis. One sign of it is a wheezing sound when the person breathes. Another symptom is a cough that produces yellow mucus and does not go away. Miners and chemical workers are at risk of COPD from breathing dust and harmful chemicals. But the most common cause is long-term smoking or years of breathing other people's smoke. Francis Welch is a retired dentist, former smoker and now a COPD patient. He stopped smoking more than ten years ago. He also persuaded his son to stop. Mr. Welch says his son quit smoking when he saw his father walking around with a can of liquid oxygen.And that's the VOA Special English Health Report.

Now there's some intriguing evidence about connections between asthma and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Researchers from Australia found that women who have PCOS are also more likely to have asthma. The study also showed links between asthma, PCOS and excess weight. PCOS is one of the most common hormonal disorders in women, according to the PCOS Foundation. The condition is known to increase the risk of insulin resistance, heart disease and high blood pressure. Women with PCOS may have high testosterone levels, excessive hair growth, acne and fertility problems.The researchers found 5.8 percent of women ages 28 to 33 had PCOS. Of the women who had PCOS, 15.2 percent also had asthma. Among women without PCOS only 10.6 percent had asthma. For dailyRx, I'm Shelby Cullinan.

Click on the link below for a free video guide to shopping for dietary supplements. http://utahtexans.com/ In this video I'm going to share some of the major side effects of the drug symbicort and I'm going to share a few better options. Breathing is important right? Symicort does help someone breath by reducing inflammation in the airways. It's commonly prescribed to people with asthma or lung disease. If you don't have insurance this inhaler is going to cost around $300, which is expensive. It lasts about 30 days if you take 2 puffs a day. The main ingredient in this drug is Formoterol. Researchers from Cornell and Stanford universities have looked at 19 trials with over 33 thousand patients and have concluded that the ingredient in this drug called Foroterol may be causing 4 out of 5 U.S. Asthma related deaths per year and should be taken off the market. You might be wondering how does this ingredient kill. The answer is according to the researchers is that the medication relieves asthma symptoms, however it promotes inflammation without warning. Almost like they relieve the symptoms for the short term, but make them worse overall. I'll share just 1 study and that is researchers found that 53 of 3,083 patients inhaling this ingredient were hospitalized for an asthma attack, compared with 12 of 2,008 patients who received a placebo. Let's talk about some of the most common side effects and that would be headache, throat irritation, nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, diarrhea, back pain, stuffy nose, muscle or joint pain, or changes in your voice. Of course there are many other side effects that you could experience depending on how your body reacts to the drug. At this point you might be wondering if there are better options. I would highly encourage you to look at bee pollen for allergies. According to the “Journal of Allergy” 78% of asthma patients averaged a 75% improvement after taking bee pollen. Another great idea that is often overlooked is vitamin D, which you can get in a multivitamin. In the September issue of the “Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology” researchers reviewed nearly 60 years' worth of literature on vitamin D with asthma. They found that a vitamin D deficiency is linked to increased airway reactivity, lower lung functions, and worse asthma control. To learn more ideas click on the link below. http://utahtexans.com/

For some or the other reasons, clinicians have to prescribe antibiotics to women during pregnancy. Some are OK to be administered, but many are not. Antibiotic use in pregnancy and the risk of wheeze is a widely debated topic. Antibiotics such as tetracyclines should be avoided during pregnancy since it can damage pregnant woman's liver and discolour the baby's teeth. Similarly, trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole, generally used to treat urinary tract infection are linked with an increased risk of birth defects Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/drzulfiquar Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drzulfiquarahmed Google+: https://plus.google.com/+ZulfiquarAhmed Website: http://www.drzulfiquar.com

One in every 14 Americans uses a proton pump inhibitor (PPI)— the most common type of heartburn drug— in any given year, but new research that links them to an increased risk of heart attack has prompted scientists to re-evaluate their safety. Visit http://www.vivahealthylife.com/acid-reflux/ A study by Stanford University researchers, published Wednesday in the journal PLOS One, linked PPI use to an about 20 percent increased a chance of heart attack in patients diagnosed with heartburn.
Although doctors have suspected there are links between asthma and cardiovascular disease, new research suggests patients with late-onset asthma are especially at risk for heart disease and stroke. According to UPI, researchers at the University of Wisconsin report in the Journal of the American Heart Association that patients with adult-onset asthma are at significant risk for developing cardiovascular disease. The findings suggest links between the combined inflammation caused by both conditions adds up to a greater health risk. Overall, late-onset asthmatic patients were found to be 57 percent more likely to have a cardiovascular health event than those without the condition. Women and people with higher BMI were also found to be more likely to have a heart health event. However, early-onset asthma patients had no significant difference in cardiovascular disease health events when compared to those without asthma. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/08/24/Late-onset-asthma-linked-to-cardiovascular-disease-risk/1121472064066/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Some people who have type 2 diabetes can achieve their target blood sugar levels with diet and exercise alone, but many also need diabetes medications or insulin therapy. The decision about which medications are best depends on many factors, including your blood sugar level and any other health problems you have. Your doctor might even combine drugs from different classes to help you control your blood sugar in several different ways. 1. Metformin Generally, metformin is the first medication prescribed for type 2 diabetes. It works by improving the sensitivity of your body tissues to insulin so that your body uses insulin more effectively. Metformin also lowers glucose production in the liver. Metformin may not lower blood sugar enough on its own. Your doctor will also recommend lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and becoming more active. 2. Meglitinides These medications work like sulfonylureas by stimulating the pancreas to secrete more insulin, but they're faster acting, and the duration of their effect in the body is shorter. They also have a risk of causing low blood sugar, but this risk is lower than with sulfonylureas. Weight gain is a possibility with this class of medications as well. Examples include repaglinide (Prandin) and nateglinide (Starlix). 3. Thiazolidinediones Like metformin, these medications make the body's tissues more sensitive to insulin. This class of medications has been linked to weight gain and other more-serious side effects, such as an increased risk of heart failure and fractures. Because of these risks, these medications generally aren't a first-choice treatment. Rosiglitazone (Avandia) and pioglitazone (Actos) are examples of thiazolidinediones. 4. Sulfonylureas These medications help your body secrete more insulin. Examples of medications in this class include glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase), glipizide (Glucotrol) and glimepiride (Amaryl). Possible side effects include low blood sugar and weight gain. 5. GLP-1 receptor agonists These medications slow digestion and help lower blood sugar levels, though not as much as sulfonylureas. Their use is often associated with some weight loss. This class of medications isn't recommended for use by itself. Exenatide (Byetta) and liraglutide (Victoza) are examples of GLP-1 receptor agonists. Possible side effects include nausea and an increased risk of pancreatitis. 6. SGLT2 inhibitors These are the newest diabetes drugs on the market. They work by preventing the kidneys from reabsorbing sugar into the blood. Instead, the sugar is excreted in the urine. Examples include canagliflozin (Invokana) and dapagliflozin (Farxiga). Side effects may include yeast infections and urinary tract infections, increased urination and hypotension. 7. DPP-4 inhibitors These medications help reduce blood sugar levels, but tend to have a modest effect. They don't cause weight gain. Examples of these medications are sitagliptin (Januvia), saxagliptin (Onglyza) and linagliptin (Tradjenta).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x75jr1zDgSk The bones need vitamin D because it encourages the use of calcium in the body. It is usually connected with rickets, a disease caused by the deficiency of vitamin D, which results in softening bones and bow legs. But, recently, studies have shown that this vitamin is crucial to the fight against many health issues. Subscribe and watch this video until the end to know the complete information. If you have a vitamin D insufficiency, you’ll feel pain in the bones and muscle weakness. But, often you can feel no pain and yet be subjected to many health risks. Scientists have connected these 8 illnesses with chronic vitamin D insufficiency: 1. Asthma. While the main cause of asthma remains unknown, it is proven that lack of vitamin D has a great part of it. This vitamin decreases the fierceness and predominance of asthma symptoms. Also, it defeats the infections that cause narrowing of the air passage, thus hardening the breathing. 2. High blood pressure. The Journal of Investigative Medicine has published a study that claims that people with hypertension live better with the increased value of vitamin D. Moreover, a marker of this vitamin is known to balance the inflammation of the blood vessels and other signs of high blood pressure. 3. Gastrointestinal diseases. The deficiency of vitamin D is often connected with some conditions like Crohn’s disease and another disease of the gastrointestinal tract. Studies have shown that the Inflammatory bowel disease rates are higher in the places where the natural exposure to sunlight is lower and vice versa. 4. Viral infections. It is common knowledge that the viral infections are more frequent in winter when the sunlight and ultraviolet B ray’s exposure are at their lowest rate. This, together with a number of studies, indicates that vitamin D increases the immunity and the flu-fighting potential of the body. 5. Type 2 diabetes. A study, published in the journal AIDS, has shown that the symptoms of metabolic syndrome are noticeably worse as the case of HIV when there is a lack of vitamin D in the system. Also, this study has shown that if you expose yourself regularly to the natural sunlight, you will have lower chances to develop diabetes type 2. 6. Dental cavities. It was known for years that the lack of sunlight exposure causes health problems. Recently, scientists have connected the vitamin D deficiency with poor dental health such as dental caries. 7. Rheumatoid arthritis. A study in Canada has shown a connection between vitamin D deficiency and rheumatoid arthritis. People that have the lowest blood levels are the most exposed to this kind of disease. So, if you have this condition, you should expose yourself more to the sunlight. 8. Cancer. Any type of cancer is more eminent with people that have a lack of vitamin D. On the other hand, those who have the optimal level of this vitamin are considerably less likable to develop cancer. Foods that provide vitamin D include. Fatty fish, like tuna, mackerel, and salmon. Foods fortified with vitamin D, like some dairy products, orange juice, soy milk, and cereals. Beef liver. Cheese. Egg yolks. So, these are some foods you can include in your daily diet to increase your vitamin D Values. Thanks for watching. Please like, comment, subscribe and share with your friends and family.

Major asthma breakthrough as scientists discover root cause of the condition - and say a new treatment is less than 5 years away http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3050951/Major-asthma-breakthrough-scientists-discover-root-cause-condition-say-new-treatment-5-years-away.html Scientists claim to have found the root cause of asthma, a breakthrough which could pave the way for a new treatment within five years. Most of the millions of asthma sufferers are able to regulate their symptoms with inhalers, but a minority - about 5 per cent of patients - do not respond to any treatment. Now scientists have found a protein within the airways which they believe triggers all asthma attacks. Remarkably, a drug already exists which they think could deactivate the protein, raising hopes for a treatment which may be effective for any asthma patient. The team, led by Cardiff University, has already shown that the drug works in mice and in human tissue samples in the laboratory. They have now designed the first clinical trials, which could start within two years. Lead investigator Professor Daniela Riccardi said: ‘Our findings are incredibly exciting.’ The discovery came quite by chance when Professor Riccardi, formerly a bones specialist, switched from the study of osteoporosis to the study of the lungs five years ago. She realised that a protein that triggers the growth of calcium within bones also plays a role in the airways.

A new study suggests that pregnant women with the highest levels of exposure to magnetic fields are more likely to have a child who develops asthma, compared to pregnant women with low exposure levels. The study was conducted by the same researcher who made waves in 2002 with a study that suggested magnetic fields could boost a woman's chances of miscarriage. But many experts aren't convinced the risks are real and the medical field remains sharply divided over the presence of a link between health problems and exposure to electromagnetic fields. Magnetic and electric fields are areas of energy around electrical devices and, in combination, are referred to as electromagnetic fields. Previous research has suggested EMFs may be linked to some types of cancer and other health problems, such asmiscarriages, poor semen quality and immune disorders. EMFs emitted by power lines and home appliances, such asmicrowave ovens, hairdryers and vacuum cleaners, are referred to as "extremely low frequency" and should not be confused with devices such as cellphones, which emit higher-frequency EMFs called radiofrequency. http://www.emfnews.org/articles/ http://www.emfnews.org/products.html http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meters.html

Older adults may consider their breathlessness to be a frustrating but natural consequence of ageing, unaware that respiratory disease might be the cause. Yet the prevalence of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) both increase with age. The risk of dying from asthma also increases with age, and acute asthma attacks are more rapidly fatal in older adults. However, up to one-third of elderly people with asthma are not identified as such by their doctors through a combination of under-reporting of symptoms and complexity of diagnosis. COPD is also under-diagnosed in the elderly. This program will cover the differential diagnosis and management of asthma in older adults with breathlessness, with interrelated discussion of COPD. The distinction between asthma and COPD is important, even when they co-exist, as there are significant differences in the optimal management of each condition. Clinical case studies will be used to frame the discussion. Produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation http://www.rhef.com.au/

Today's Alternative News Channel - SCIENTISTS CALL FOR RESTRICTIONS ON IBUPROFEN & OTHER OVER-THE-COUNTER PAINKILLERS AFTER DEADLY RISKS DISCOVERED Another study has emerged linking Ibuprofen, the popular over-the counter pain-killer, to harmful and life-threatening health effects in those with cardiac conditions. This time it’s from researchers in Denmark, who found that taking the over-the-counter drug caused a 31% increased risk of cardiac arrest, among other things. It wasn’t just Ibuprofen, but common painkillers that also fall under this category, known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). In fact, they found that other drugs in this category, like Tylenol, present an even higher risk. The study outlines how painkillers are considered completely harmless by the general public, and that few people think twice about hitting the drug store shelves the moment they experience slight pain or a headache. It’s time to start really paying attention to what we are doing here, especially given the fact that NSAIDs are among the most commonly used drugs in the world and easily available to anybody over the counter. According the the study’s lead author, Dr. Gunnar H. Gislason, a professor of cardiology at Cophenhagen University Hospital Gentofte: Allowing these drugs to be purchased without a prescription, and without any advice or restrictions, sends a message to the public that they must be safe The findings are a stark reminder that NSAIDs are not harmless. Diclofenac and ibuprofen, both commonly used drugs, were associated with significantly increased risk of cardiac arrest. . . . NSAIDs should be used with caution and for a valid indication. . . . The current message being sent to the public about NSAIDs is wrong. If you can buy these drugs in a convenience store then you probably think “they must be safe for me.” Our study adds to the evidence about the adverse cardiovascular effects of NSAIDs and confirms that they should be taken seriously, and used only after consulting a healthcare professional.” Professor Gislason does not think these drugs should be sold outside of pharmacies, where there would be no professional available to advise how best to take them and when to avoid them. The study collected data from all patients who had a cardiac arrest incident outside of a hospital in Denmark between 2001 and 2010, identified from the nationwide Danish Cardiac Arrest Registry. Data was collected on all redeemed prescriptions for NSAIDs from pharmacies in Denmark since 1995. The study, which examined a total of 28,947 patients who had an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Denmark, found that 3,376 of these patients were treated with an NSAID up to 30 days before their event. Ibuprofen was one of the most common used NSAIDs, making up 51% of total NSAID use. “NSAIDs exert numerous effects on the cardiovascular system which could explain the link with cardiac arrest. These include influencing platelet aggregation and causing blood clots, causing the arteries to constrict, increasing fluid retention, and raising blood pressure.” Not the Only Study The amount of literature available on this subject can be overwhelming. It really makes you question what science is allowing companies to get these products onto the market without the proper safety measures in place. Dr. Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s most foremost body in assessing medical evidence), hopes to make clear this very problem. He is currently working to inform the world about the dangers associated with several pharmaceutical grade drugs. Based on his research, he estimates that 100,000 people in the United States alone die each year from the side-effects of correctly used prescription drugs, noting that “it’s remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs.” Gotzche’s two main areas of focus are painkillers, like Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Celecoxib, and Diclofenac, and Vioxx, which was actually withdrawn after it was discovered that it caused more than 100,000 cases of serious heart disease in the United States during the five years that it was on the market.

CBD packs a serious punch when it comes to the treatment and prevention of many common ailments and diseases. AND it accomplishes all this without any sort of psychoactive high, hallucinations, paranoia, laziness, or other negative effects. Sooo… What is CBD? CBD is a cannabinoid that is commonly used in the form of an oil. It can be ingested or applied to the skin to receive the positive effects. There are a variety of ways in which people can benefit from CBD oil treatment. Some may surprise you. Let’s dive in. Anti-Inflammatory Properties CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory. When injured or defending itself against foreign invaders, the body naturally responds by sending extra attention to the affected area. This is known as inflammation. Short-term inflammation is helpful , but long-term or chronic inflammation can be extremely damaging. Chronic inflammation has been linked to several diseases such as arthritis, asthma, emphysema, and heart disease. CBD oil treatment can reverse and prevent those symptoms by reducing inflammation at the source. Acne Treatment and Prevention A lesser known benefit of CBD is its ability to treat and prevent acne. when your body over produces oil, it can cause acne. CBD slows down the production of that oil, making it less likely that you will overproduce it. This can nip the acne in the bud. Cigarette Addiction Treatment A recent study showed that CBD may have a valuable purpose in fighting nicotine withdrawal. In a double placebo study smokers were given an inhaler to use when having the urge to smoke. Those who used the inhaler that contained CBD, ended up decreasing consumption of cigarettes by almost 40% after only a week. Anxiety Disorders and Stress Management CBD oil treatment reduces the body’s natural response to fearful circumstances like public speaking. The reduction in anxiety can be attributed to the reduced heart rate and blood pressure caused by CBD. This creates a calming effect on the body, even in the face of stressful circumstances. A Cure For Insomnia Since CBD can be so beneficial in combating anxiety, it’s no surprise that it can help our bodies calm down and get a restful sleep. With no habit forming qualities or known side effects, CBD oil treatment may be one of the safest ways out there to cure insomnia. And, these are just 5 of the medical issues that CBD can help you with, but the list continues to grow. If you are interested in cannabis distribution including CBD oil, we’re here to help.

http://www.rxwiki.com/news-article/asthma-childhood-may-increase-shingles-risk Ever had chickenpox? If so, you're at risk of shingles. But you may be at an even higher risk if you also have this common condition. In a new study, researchers from the Mayo Clinic linked childhood asthma to an increased risk of herpes zoster, more commonly known as shingles. This itchy, painful rash is caused by a reactivation of the chickenpox virus in the body. Anyone who previously had chickenpox can develop shingles — even young children. However, it is more common among older adults. Nearly 1 million shingles cases occur every year in the US, with an estimated one-third of all US adults affected by age 80. Despite the prevalence of shingles, it is still unclear why some people develop shingles and others do not.

Descriptions of Signs of Vitamin B12 Deficiency: Why is vitamin B12 important and where can i get vitamin b12? Vitamin B12 is vital for the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body. It is also needed for the proper functioning and health of nerve tissue, as it is involved in producing the protective myelin sheath that covers the nerves and conducts nerve impulses. It works together with folate in the metabolism of cells, especially affecting DNA synthesis and fatty acid and amino acid metabolism. This particular B vitamin also helps our bodies absorb folic acid, which facilitates the release of energy. Since your body doesn’t make vitamin B12, it is important to get it from food sources (especially animal-based foods, fruits with vitamin b12) or supplements on a regular basis, vitamin b12 serum, b12 energy or vitamin b12 supplement. Always consult your doctor before starting any supplement regimen. Here are the top 5 signs of vitamin B12 deficiency. review : 01:02 Fatigue and Low Energy 02:05 Numbness and Tingling Sensations 03:08 Low Blood Pressure 04:06 Skin Lesions 05:11 Depression 1. Fatigue and Low Energy This vitamin plays a prominent role in energy metabolism, hence its deficiency has a direct impact on your energy and endurance levels. Vitamin B12 enhances your body’s ability to make DNA for new cells to provide energy. It is also needed to form healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen to the whole body. Without proper oxygen levels, you feel tired and lethargic. Plus, B12 is needed to turn the food you eat into energy to power your metabolism. Low metabolism prevents you from feeling your best and performing at your highest energy level. 2. Numbness and Tingling Sensations Vitamin B12 plays a key role in keeping your nervous system healthy. Thus, neurological signs like numbness or a tingling sensation in the hands and feet can indicate its deficiency. Vitamin B12 helps in the manufacturing of nerves and, moreover, it has a key role in helping oxygen reach different parts of the body. Poor oxygen supply is one of the main causes of numbness and tingling sensations. Its deficiency can also cause balance problems. 3. Low Blood Pressure Deficiencies of vitamin B12 and folic acid can cause anemia, which can lead to low blood pressure, also known as hypotension. Vitamin B12 helps your body produce red blood cells so that adequate oxygen reaches each and every part of your body, including the heart. A 2012 study published in the Texas Heart Institute Journal reports that vitamin B12 deficiency is well known among neurologists but is often overlooked by cardiologists when treating low blood pressure. If you suffer from low blood pressure, opt for a B12 test. Even moderate forms of low blood pressure can cause shortness of breath, dizziness, weakness, fainting and risk of injury from falls. 4. Skin Lesions Low vitamin B12 can also cause skin lesions and hair changes. A 2008 study published in Canadian Family Physicians reports that vitamin B12 deficiency is linked to skin lesions. Unexplained and non-resolving skin lesions can signal vitamin B12 deficiency, hence you need to visit your doctor as soon as possible. Along with skin lesions, its deficiency can cause hyperpigmentation of the skin, which leads to uneven skin color and dark patches on the skin. 5. Depression This particular B vitamin is also essential for mental health. Its role in forming red blood cells in turn helps support a healthy nervous system. Plus, it helps lower the level of homocysteine, a by product of protein metabolism. A high level of homocysteine in the body can lead to depression. This is why it is important to consider the possibility of B12 deficiency, especially among the elderly suffering from depression, according to a 2009 study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry emphasis upon. In fact, a 2013 study published in the Open Neurology Journal shed light on the importance of vitamin B12 supplementation in the treatment of major depressive disorder. The study found that people with depression experienced significant improvement in symptoms when treated with vitamin B12 supplementation as well as antidepressants.

26, 2016 -- A common genetic variation significantly boosts the odds of asthma in children who've had a severe respiratory illness at a young age, researchers report. "Our findings suggest that genetic influences on asthma might be more pronounced in the context of early life environmental exposures, especially viral respiratory infections," said Dr. Rajesh Kumar, an allergist at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. It focused on a variation of the Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) gene. Asthma risk was 17 times higher among children with this variation who had a common illness called bronchiolitis by the age of 2, the researchers found. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/08/26/Early-virus-raises-asthma-risk-in-certain-kids-Study/4371472238459/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Moises is author of the best selling book, An Epidemic of Absence: A New Way of Understanding Allergies and Autoimmune Diseases. He seems to have unearthed the reason why inflammatory diseases are so rampant today: our immune system has a broken off switch. Parasites used to be the “brakes” of our immune system. “We’ve outsourced our immune tolerance to them,” he says. (In order for parasites to thrive in our bodies, they tricked our immune system into thinking they weren’t there.) But, now they’re gone… Asthma, allergies, autoimmunity and neuroinflammatory diseases are on the rise. Parasites even make the microbiome more diverse, according to new research. Learn more: Moises is is the author of a best selling book on microbes called Epidemic of Absence. His research and book cleared up many missing links in my mind about immunology and microbes, I’m sure you’ll feel the same. Here are some key takeaways: 02:16 The Role of Parasitic Worms (Helminths): 06:20 T-Reg Cells as a Mechanism: 08:27 Parasites & Helminths and Hormone Regulation: Chronic infection is costly to the body’s energy stores to keep the immune system at strength. There is less energy to invest in other areas like procreation. In animal studies, as soon as a rat is infected with helminths, sex hormone levels drop. 12:31 How Did Humans Get So Clean? before it is evicted from our bodies. Crowd diseases came with agriculture and settled living. The past 15,000 years of human history has been a gradual buildup of pestilence and filth, which culminates in the industrial revolution with huge migration into cities with little to no sanitation. In the 19th century we began the sanitary revolution with sewers, clean water, and a basic understanding of germ theory. Suddenly this genome that had been exposed to ever increasing quantities of filth, parasite load and crowd diseases, 26:32 Hookworm Study: A small study of hookworms theorized that the pig whip worm was never meant to reside in the human body and would not work. 28:03 Parasites and the Gut Microbiome: The hookworm study also looked at changes in the gut microbiome. With the introduction of the hookworms, diversity of the microbiome increased. Generally people with celiac have an impoverished microbiome. When ecosystems are more diverse are generally healthier, more productive, less prone to disturbance or invasion. In rodent studies, helminth infection seems to increase diversity and increase metabolites (fermentation byproducts) of the microbiome that are thought to be healthy.
