How much proof is enough proof? That’s the question telemedicine advocates must be asking themselves as they watch the wheels of bureaucracy slowly grind to put the infrastructure in place to make remote patient monitoring and Continue reading
Ovarian cancer is one of the most deadly diseases out there. It is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among U.S. women — an astounding 14,000 out of 23,000 diagnosed each year, die. Ovarian cancer tends to be aggressive and generally has very few symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage. Fortunately, several natural remedies have proven to be exceptionally useful in both preventing and curing this silent killer. Ginger, ginkgo biloba, green tea and flaxseed are all remarkably effective Continue reading

There is a condition called pica, which triggers the cravings — and it is caused by mineral deficiencies.

Do you know why you lose some of your memory function when you age? It’s because the brain actually shrinks. This, you are no doubt thinking, is something that most definitely can’t be reversed. Everyone should just accept that an agile brain and an excellent memory are things of the past once they hit middle age. But not so, according to a recent study done by researchers in Columbus, Ohio. Results show that a one-year period of exercise doesn’t only slow down brain shrinkage — it could also actually reverse it! For the study, Continue reading
Two emergency medicine physicians with wartime experience have developed a weapon against one rapidly lethal war injury.
Insurgents commonly aim just below a soldier’s body armor, where the trunk and legs join, to injure the body’s largest blood vessels, causing soldiers to bleed to death within minutes.
“There is no way to put a tourniquet around it, so soldiers are getting shot in this area and dying within several minutes,” said Dr. Richard Schwartz, Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine in the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Health Sciences University. Police officers wearing chest protection as well as automobile accident victims can sustain similar injuries.
Efforts to externally compress the injury have been largely ineffective; the inch-round aorta runs parallel to the spine, so it can’t be approached from the back, and is several inches Continue reading
Mustard seeds are not a big part of the North American diet. In Japan, however, they are frequently added to many meals and are eaten in abundance. Researchers have noted that the Japanese also have the longest life expectancy in the world. In a recent health breakthrough, researchers have discovered that mustard seeds may play a small but important part in the robust health of the Japanese.
Mustard seeds contain a number of potent phytochemicals to boost your nutritional health. In fact, many of these antioxidants have yet to be fully discovered by scientists in the medical community. Chinese researchers set out to solve some of this mystery by performing a clinical trial.
They used a specially prepared extract made from mustard seeds and applied it to a collection of human colon cancer cells to see if any beneficial effects could be seen. They found that the mustard seed extract helped to prevent the growth of the tumor cells Continue reading
Researchers at a breast cancer conference stated that up to one-third of breast cancers could be avoided by making different lifestyle choices, such as the foods you choose to eat.
There is one food you may be surprised to learn, that is directly linked to breast cancer—and that is pasteurized dairy in the form of milk or milk products.
The risk lies in consuming milk from cows treated with a synthetic, genetically engineered growth hormone called rBGH, and unfortunately, this applies to about one third of the dairy cows in America.
When you consume dairy products from these cows, every product made from their milk Continue reading
