Custom Probiotics - Highest Potency Probiotic Supplements Maybe Dairy Fat Isn’t So Bad After All | American Council on Science and Health A recent study challenges the recommendation that we should avoid dairy fat. Advice to limit all dietary fat, and to drink only 1 percent (low fat) or skim (non-fat) milk has been a cornerstone of dietary guidance for years. Yet, at least with respect to the occurrence of new cases of diabetes, full-fat dairy products just might have a preventive edge, according to the report. The researchers examined blood levels of dairy fatty acids in participants in two long-term prospective studies. Samples from the Nurses’ Health study were collected in 1989-90, and those from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study were obtained in 1993-94. In all, the samples from 3,333 adults aged 30-75 years were analyzed. The researchers found that higher plasma levels of particular fatty acids derived from dairy foods were associated with a lower risk of developing diabetes — by anywhere from 44 to 52 percent — and these differences were statistically significant.

Psicosis La psicosis es un término genérico utilizado en psiquiatría y psicología para referirse a un estado mental descrito como una escisión o pérdida de contacto con la realidad. A las personas que lo padecen se las denomina psicóticas. En la actualidad, el término «psicótico» es a menudo usado incorrectamente como sinónimo de psicopático. Las personas que experimentan psicosis pueden presentar alucinaciones o delirios y pueden exhibir cambios en su personalidad y pensamiento desorganizado. Estos síntomas pueden ser acompañados por un comportamiento inusual o extraño, así como por dificultad para interactuar socialmente e incapacidad para llevar a cabo actividades de la vida diaria. Una amplia variedad de elementos del sistema nervioso, tanto orgánicos como funcionales, pueden causar una reacción psicótica. Definición[editar] Una correcta apreciación del término implica circunscribir la psicosis como una situación de enfermedad mental que presenta un desvío en el juicio de realidad.

Green tea health risks: Could green tea actually be bad for you? Green tea has received a lot of positive media attention in recent years. But is it really good for everyone? Not necessarily. There is a group of people for whom green tea may be hazardous. And given green tea’s popularity these days, it’s critical to share this information with anyone interested in health. Green tea has a wealth of research behind it demonstrating a number of health-promoting benefits including anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic and antioxidant properties. Many of green tea’s benefits are due to its effects on the immune system, which is also where it can cause problems. But before telling you how green tea impacts the immune system, let’s take a quick look at a simplified version of how it works. Should you banish this harmless-looking substance from your pantry? A primer on the immune system The immune system is composed of white blood cells, which are then differentiated into five different type of immune cells. Let’s say you cut yourself with a dirty knife. Conclusion

Neuroléptico Origen[editar] En el argot psiquiátrico, los antipsicóticos, también llamados antipsicóticos clásicos, típicos o tranquilizantes mayores, se identifican bajo el término de neurolépticos, del griego neuro, "nervio", y lepto, "atar". Su descubrimiento fue accidental. Se suele decir que su descubrimiento fue accidental. En 1952 Jean Delay y Pierre Deniker, dos de los psiquiatras más reconocidos de su época, comenzaron a ensayar la clorpromazina, administrándola a algunos de sus pacientes. En las décadas posteriores se sintetizaron numerosos compuestos antipsicóticos con eficacia equivalente y con pocas diferencias en su toxicidad. Farmacología[editar] Clasificación[editar] Clasificación clínico-farmacológica[editar] Antipsicóticos típicos (clásicos) Su acción antipsicótica se ejerce al bloquear los receptores dopaminérgicos D2.Son eficaces sobre los síntomas positivos de la esquizofrenia.Tienen muchos efectos adversos, sobre todo extrapiramidales.

Endocrine System | Endocrine Awareness Center for Health The body’s internal environment is monitored and regulated by a chemical communication network. Working alongside the nervous system, endocrine glands produce hormones that control and coordinate many bodily functions. These hormones regulate the body’s growth, metabolism, sexual development, emotional responses and mental processes. The major glands of the endocrine system are the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, pineal, ovaries and testes. The pancreas is also a part of this system; it has a role in hormone production as well as in digestion. Hormones are powerful chemicals that work by altering the activity of their target cells. Although hormones come into contact with essentially all cells of the body they produce an effect only on certain cells called target cells. A hormone can have several different target cells, though these do not all react to the hormone in the same way. Different factors stimulate the production and release of hormones.

Dr Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Diet Food Pyramid HEALTHY SWEETS How much: Sparingly Healthy choices: Unsweetened dried fruit, dark chocolate, fruit sorbet Why: Dark chocolate provides polyphenols with antioxidant activity.

Feeding Time // Diabetes Reversal // Weight Maintenance | Dan's Plan Here is a recap of some of the most interesting stories in science and health that we’ve been reading and discussing over the past week – focusing on regulation of body fat and blood sugar. First, a group of Japanese researchers demonstrated how circadian misalignment, caused by shifted feeding patterns, can wreak metabolic havoc. Perhaps more importantly, they uncovered what precisely is happening inside of the brain and body to at least partially cause this. Next, we look at an English study, which revealed a way to that we might be able to put diabetes in remission – without drugs. Finally, we all know that losing weight is hard, and keeping it off can be even harder. Eating at the wrong time throws the biological clock out of sync – leading to overconsumption and metabolic derangement from Yasumoto Y, et al. As we’ve alluded to in a prior blog post, research suggests that when you eat can make a surprisingly big difference in metabolic health. From Steven S et al, Diabetes Care, 2016

Dopamina La dopamina (C6H3(OH)2-CH2-CH2-NH2) es un neurotransmisor producido en una amplia variedad de animales, incluidos tanto vertebrados como invertebrados. Según su estructura química, la dopamina es una feniletilamina, una catecolamina que cumple funciones de neurotransmisor en el sistema nervioso central. En el sistema nervioso, la dopamina cumple funciones de neurotransmisor, activando los cinco tipos de receptores celulares de dopamina – D1 (relacionado con un efecto activador), D2 (relacionado con un efecto inhibidor), D3, D4 y D5, y sus variantes. La dopamina se produce en muchas partes del sistema nervioso, especialmente en la sustancia negra. Como fármaco, actúa como simpaticomimético (emulando la acción del sistema nervioso simpático) promoviendo el incremento de la frecuencia cardíaca y la presión arterial, a su vez, puede producir efectos deletéreos como taquicardia o hipertensión arterial.

Bioplant Research Bioplant® - Clinical Applications Replacement Therapy Concepts Socket Grafting/Ridge Preservation Simply stated: "When you take something out, you should put something back." Socket grafting/ridge preservation is the immediate replacement of an extracted tooth or teeth because: When you take something out, you should put something back. Bioplant HTR Synthetic Bone used in Replacement Therapy procedures is the way to prevent the 40-60% bone loss after tooth extraction which occurs in all people within two to three years. Stages of Jawbone Atrophy Post-Extraction Bioplant® - Extraction Socket Therapy According to the American Dental Association ("ADA"), 80 million teeth are extracted annually, 50 million of which should be treated. It has been shown that after a tooth extraction, the surrounding jawbone tends to recede and atrophy, eventually losing nearly 40% to 60% of its original height and width within two to three years.
