The changing of the seasons adds richness and beauty to our lives. Tensions between Dr. Anthony Fauci and the White House were building after the nation’s best-known infectious disease expert had kind words for Joe Biden and warned that the U.S. is in for a whole lot of hurt” from COVID-19 this fall and winter. Fauci, in an interview with the Washington Post, also said he had “real problems” with White House pandemic adviser Scott Atlas, saying Atlas failed to take the virus seriously despite the sharp rise in daily cases nationwide. Atlas appeared on Russian state media Saturday, criticizing lockdown measures as “an epic failure” he said were “killing” Americans. You’ve likely read about former president Bill Clinton’s dramatic heart-health makeover and about superstar Beyoncé’s substantial weight loss with a vegan diet – but did you know a plant-based prescription can be 20 times more powerful than today’s leading drugs in treating and reversing heart disease? With 1 in 6 cases of heart disease that start in utero, and with a heart attack occurring every 45 seconds, it’s never too late or too early to adopt a fiber-packed, heart-healthful diet. The Mediterranean diet, the DASH diet and the Ornish diet support overall health and well-being. Even though these plans are not specially designed for weight loss, they promote the consumption of whole, natural foods and can help you get leaner. The key is to control your daily calorie intake. The effects of night eating have led to the speculation that eating lighter dinners could be better for our weight too. Some health professionals advise eating most of our kilojoules during the day and eating a smaller dinner as a way to lose weight. Researchers had 34 younger men exercise two to three times a week for 24 weeks. Concurrent training led to an increase in both physical fitness and muscle mass. Interestingly, exercise order didn’t alter training adaptations. Cancer has long been known to be a disease of aging, with 60% of cases and 70% of deaths occurring in people over age 65. The new findings by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health researchers, published Sept. 4 in Cancer Discovery and Oct. 23 in Clinical Cancer Research, reveal new mechanisms common in aging that contribute to melanoma spread and resistance to treatment. The more medical and technical name for leaky gut is intestinal permeability. This occurs when substances such as incompletely digested food particles, chemicals from a variety of sources, especially those found in foods or added to foods, fungi, bacteria, viruses, food allergens, metabolic by-products and bacterial toxins escape the normal intestinal channels into the body. This escape of these various substances occur when the so-called tight junctions are loose and open in the lining of the the small and even large intestines. These tight junctions can be considered as spaces between the intestinal cells. The body’s immune system encounters these substances and goes into action. The body’s response can be immediate or delayed. This intestinal wall is supposed to protect the body from foreign materials and pathogens while allowing the absorption of water, electrolytes, and nutrients into the body. Because of the variety of substances that can leak with the leaky gut, the current testing methods is only able to partially measure the full number of leaks.

Charlotte Cho, founder of Korean beauty and lifestyle website Soko Glam and author of “The Little Book of Skin Care,” suggests this concoction for treating and soothing acne-prone or sensitive skin. Jan 13, 2020. For years, the skin care industry has relied on this same high frequency, oxygen molecule producing technology to aid in lymphatic drainage, gently exfoliate the skin, increase blood, circulation, assist in the production of collagen and elastin and promote healthy cell metabolism. Vitamin D is an important vitamin that you get through some of the foods you eat and through sun exposure. When skin is exposed to the sun, it can make vitamin D. Vitamin D also is available as a dietary supplement. For onychomycosis, topical treatment options include ciclopirox olamine 8% and efinaconazole 10% solutions. Often, topical treatments alone are not sufficient to eradicate the underlying infectious agent and cure the nail infection, so systemic medication is frequently indicated. Oral antifungal agents that may be used to treat onychomycosis include itraconazole (Sporanox) and terbinafine (Lamisil) (Kreijkamp-Kaspers 2017). The cure rates for systemic medications range from about 50% to about 75%. Side effects of oral antifungal agents used to treat onychomycosis include flu-like symptoms, gastrointestinal distress, infections, headaches, elevation of liver enzymes, and altered metabolism of other drugs (Bodman 2017; Westerberg 2013; Kreijkamp-Kaspers 2017). In another study, researchers assessed how incorporating walnuts into an individual’s usual diet would improve inflammatory biomarkers. Previous studies have found that regular nut consumption is associated with lower heart disease risk and lower overall cholesterol; however, there has been limited research linking nut consumption with less inflammation in the body. A total of 634 participants were assigned either a diet without walnuts or a diet with regularly incorporated walnuts (about 30-60 grams per day). After a follow up period of two years, those who ate a diet with walnuts showed significantly reduced levels of inflammation in the body in 6 out of 10 of the inflammatory biomarkers tested. Foods contain two types of iron — heme iron found in animal foods and non-heme iron found in plant foods. Heme iron is more bioavailable than non-heme iron. In addition, its absorption is less affected by other dietary components. For example, the non-heme iron in spinach may be poorly absorbed because it contains plant chemicals called polyphenols that inhibit iron absorption.

Like getting active, tracking your mental health can benefit by adding small moments of mindfulness to your day. Studies have shown that a mindfulness meditation practice not only helps reduce stress levels, but also correlated with decreased gray-matter density in the amygdala, which plays an important role in anxiety and stress.

Results indicated that vitamin D regulates the immune system and the production of keratin and sebum from the sebaceous glands. Furthermore, research suggests that vitamin D benefits the skin with its antioxidant properties that may inhibit the blocking of pores in the skin. Your skin is constantly protecting you. Your skin keeps infections out of your body and keeps you from getting sick. When you take care of your skin, you’re helping your skin do its job. And taking care of your skin today will help prevent future problems, like wrinkles and even skin cancer. Good skin care also has tremendous social and mental benefits. By looking good it makes a great first impression on others in an interview, a date, or even just making new friends. The mental benefits may even be greater – it keeps you feeling good about yourself. Nothing gives you more self-confidence and an extra bounce in your step more than knowing you look good. Proper skin care, being that skin is the most noticeable part of a person’s body is the #1 way to get that feeling.

Over half (53%) with a chronic condition who deferred care expect to significantly increase their use of health care services when the pandemic ends. Actinic keratosis is a precancerous lesion caused by ultraviolet light exposure from sunlight or tanning beds. It manifests as rough, scaly skin patches, typically on the face, ears, backs of the hands, forearms, scalp, and neck (Mayo Clinic 2017a). In addition to older age, risk factors for actinic keratosis include a history of outdoor work, male gender, baldness, fair complexion, tendency to develop sunburns, evidence of sun damage to skin (eg, wrinkles), and prolonged immune weakness (Flohil 2013; Green 2015; Speight 1994; Cox 1994; Trakatelli 2016). Unlike benign skin growths, chemical or surgical treatment is strongly recommended for actinic keratosis (Cantisani 2013; Costa 2015). Importantly, a small percentage of actinic keratoses may develop into skin cancer, so consultation with a dermatologist is important (Mayo Clinic 2017b). For more information about protecting skin and preventing skin cancer, please refer to the Skin, Hair, and Nail Health and Skin Cancer protocols.

So far, Poland, with a population of 38 million people, has 649 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and seven deaths. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition affecting up to 20% of children and up to 3% of adults, and research suggests its prevalence worldwide is increasing. A family history of atopic dermatitis or allergies is a risk factor (Wollenberg 2013; Nutten 2015). Do you know how important sleep is for us? Doctors say, 7-9 hours of sleep each night maintains blood pressure, reduces cholesterol levels, and breaks the cycle of stress and counteracts its effects on our body, thus making us feel fresh and happy each day. After a good night’s sleep energy levels are higher. Your mental awareness is more acute and you are likely to smile more. A good night’s sleep also makes us more productive. A California county has reported a case of COVID-19 and flu co-infection – at least the third reported instance of a person having both viruses in the U.S. A Solano County resident under 65 tested positive for both, the Solano County Department of Health and Social Services confirmed. A vitamin is a chemical compound that is needed in small amounts for the human body to work correctly. They include Vitamin A, many B vitamins (like B 1, B 2, B 3, B 6, and B 12), Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K. For example, citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons contain vitamin C. Always consult your medical health care provider if you plan to start alternative or herbal therapies or treatments. Consult a licensed herbalist or dietitian if you are incorporating herbal treatment or changing your diet. This is especially important if you are currently under medical management for prescription medication or being treated for a medical condition. “Food is medicine” is an initiative around integrating specific food and nutrition interventions in, or closely coordinated with, the health care system These interventions include medically tailored meals, medically tailored groceries, and produce prescriptions. According to the authors, clinicians should be knowledgeable enough to recognize a patient’s nutritional needs and understand the impact of available services. However, this is not the case in many countries, including the United States. Body treatment brightens the appearance of skin with age spots.

At a news conference, President Donald Trump praised how quickly the research had progressed. Fauci noted that 65 days have passed since Chinese scientists shared the virus’ genetic sequence. He said he believed that was a record for developing a vaccine to test. These nutritional compounds (and probably others) work together to help reduce the risk of chronic diseases and control weight. For example, an analysis of studies published in 2017 in the International Journal of Epidemiology found that every 7 ounces of fruit eaten daily was linked to a 10 percent reduction in heart disease risk and an 18 percent drop in stroke risk. Because many skin disorders involve inflammatory processes, getting the right amounts of vitamin D can help support the body’s inflammatory response for helping to keep skin healthy. Garlic is a natural immune system enhancer and an important endocrine system nutrient. Chewing one or two garlic cloves each day may help maintain normal levels of blood sugar which assists the pancreas in generating correct amounts of insulin. It also may act as a blood thinner and cholesterol reducer as well. Certain herbs such as ginkgo and ginseng may also keep the endocrine system healthy by regulating release of hormones throughout the body. Garlic, ginseng and ginkgo are all available as supplements. It normally takes a few years to development a vaccine , but in the face of the coronavirus, biotechnology companies and regulatory agencies are taking aggressive steps to make a COVID-19 vaccine widely available sooner than that. In March van der Gaag received a great deal of publicity from a variety of newspapers, journals, magazines, and radio and television programs for the results of her study into the effect of unprocessed and natural food on children’s health. Van der Gaag also carried out several intervention studies on children (1-4 years old) with constantly recurring colds and coughs—”sniffly kids.” The dietary introduction of four foodstuffs—full-fat milk, butter, beef and green vegetables—yielded a significant reduction in the number of upper respiratory tract infections, days off with a cold, coughing and the use of antibiotics. The children also made fewer visits to the family doctor , suffered less fatigue and slept better. Note: The author specifies which nutrients and foods help methylation. Previous research found that people with psoriasis suffer more often from somatic and mental diseases compared to individuals without psoriasis. A new study confirmed this. The study also investigated how psoriasis skin symptoms and associated somatic diseases impacted mental health, considering anxiety, depression and suicide together.
