Unless you’ve been holed up in a cabin in the Siberian outback, it’s been hard to miss the avalanche of research and associated press coverage ballyhooing the connection between microbes and human health and disease in 2013 – and 2014 will be no different, as fecal transplants become the new black! Name just about any ailment plaguing humanity and you will find some researcher, somewhere, working the microbial angle for a causal or correlative connection. More federal funding please! But reading between the lines of the near breathless and optimistic reporting on the human microbiome, sits a sobering fact: scientists know very little about the connection between disease and the potential microbial culprits (these are early days). Science is hard and the human gut is a vast and diverse ecosystem. As with any ecosystem, it’s the community as a whole that’s likely more important, not single members per se. That said, projects like American Gut (think about joining the project!)

By Maria Popova The startling physiological effects of loneliness, optimism, and meditation. In 2013, Neil deGrasse Tyson hosted a mind-bending debate on the nature of “nothing” — an inquiry that has occupied thinkers since the dawn of recorded thought and permeates everything from Hamlet’s iconic question to the boldest frontiers of quantum physics.
That’s precisely what New Scientist editor-in-chief Jeremy Webb explores with a kaleidoscopic lens in Nothing: Surprising Insights Everywhere from Zero to Oblivion (public library | IndieBound) — a terrific collection of essays and articles exploring everything from vacuum to the birth and death of the universe to how the concept of zero gained wide acceptance in the 17th century after being shunned as a dangerous innovation for 400 years. As Webb elegantly puts it, “nothing becomes a lens through which we can explore the universe around us and even what it is to be human.

Obamacare Explained: A Guide for Californians. Buying Health Insurance Today Before the Affordable Care Act, if you bought insurance for yourself or your family, it may have been hard to find a policy with comprehensive benefits. Health insurance companies were generally not required to cover specific areas of care. If you had an illness, the health plan might have charged you a very high premium to get the care you wanted, perhaps more than you could afford. Or you might have found an affordable plan, but the company would not have covered the care you needed. For example, the company might have excluded specific illnesses based on your health history. What Changes With the Health Law? Under the Affordable Care Act, the state has set up a new marketplace, called Covered California, where insurance companies offer plans.
The headline is that the average premium, statewide, for a "silver tier" plan (more on that in a minute) is $373 per month. The 11 plans are each offered by a different insurer. How Much Will I Pay? I'm 28 and Healthy. A doctor is humbled about chronic pain. We recently spoke with Marta Meyers, MD, FACP, who works as an internist in a group practice in New Jersey. “I unfortunately became a patient when I was 52-years-old,” she told us, “and I was diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease I had always feared I would get.”
Dr. Meyers was found to have multifocal disease and underwent a right mastectomy and lymph node dissection. “Ever since I had seen mastectomies when I was in training, I dreaded ever having to get one,” she said. During the first week after her surgery, she began to feel a burning sensation in her arm, axilla, chest and back. Evaluation with electromyography and magnetic resonance imaging of the axilla and cervical spine were both unrevealing. The pain was presumed to be due to a chest wall nerve injury, and it progressed to the point where “it felt like a match was being lit to my arm and axilla and chest wall,” said Dr. This went on day after day. Dr. Dr. People have an extraordinary capacity to adapt. Dr. Still, Dr. Doctors who call patients hypochondriacs are committing malpractice.
Zackary Berger, MD, PhD | Physician | November 25, 2013 There’s one question I get asked a lot: “I research my health problems on the Internet. Am I a hypochondriac?” First, we should ban that word when talking about ourselves. No one wants to be called that, and doctors who use that word are committing malpractice. Everyone has some range of complaints and worries in life, often physical and mental together, and this is our job as doctors: to hear them out. I firmly believe that no complaint is illegitimate. Nor, for that matter, is looking stuff up on the Internet a problem. I think the relationship between physical symptoms and worry actually go in another direction, at least as I see it. In short: physical complaints are never to be dismissed, no matter what their cause, and having recourse to publicly available information is not to be looked down on either.

At the Human Performance Institute, Division of Wellness and Prevention, Inc., in Orlando, FL, our clients are high-performing professionals from a variety of industries. These men and women face incessant demands on their time, along with the pressure to perform at high levels and balance their careers and personal lives.
From our work with elite performers, we have learned that managing energy is the key to sustaining high performance. However, when facing seemingly infinite demands, one’s ability to manage and expand physical energy can be severely compromised. This can result in persistent fatigue (physical, but also emotional and mental) and a growing level of disengagement with one’s career, family, friends, and personal well-being, which can ultimately lead to performance failure. Traditionally, resistance training often is performed separately from aerobic training — typically on two or three nonconsecutive days each week.
