Both these processes act synergistically to impair the functioning of our cells and may also increase the risk of certain types of disease.
Previous research has found that levels of something called NAD+ (oxidised nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) decline with age and that this seems to result in an impairment of DNA repair mechanisms.
My physiotherapist: "You've got a knot, a trigger point in you calf muscle. Here let me stick a needle in it, that will make it feel better!"
Me: “Oh, you mean like acupuncture”? (I’ve had that done and there is no pain involved!)
My physiotherapist: “Oh no, acupuncture is for meridians. These needles go DEEP into the muscle!”

I’m not sure if this has ever happened to you, but I’ll be honest, it has happened to @papa-pepper. You may have heard the saying, “Not all that glitters is gold.” Many of us are very familiar with that saying and its meaning, but I’ve got a new one to share with you.
Yeah, that’s a hard lesson to learn. Interestingly enough, Calamine Lotion is also pink, but does not have the same effect.
Good day Steemers! I wanted to share a few simple techniques for beating the winter blues, because it still feels like winter here :( I'm guessing there are a few of you who are wishing for sunnier skies and warmer days. If there is one thing we have to accept it's what the weather is doing. So, we can either mope around feeling bummed and lethargic, or we can bring ourselves back up to a healthy, happy level internally.
The environment has a DRAMATIC affect on our bodies. Whether it be not getting enough Vitamin D (such is the case here in Vancouver) or the air quality, or the cold temperatures. All have a direct link to how we feel in our bodies, our energy levels and what we chose to do with our time.
First of all, the earth and the universe have a certain rhythmic flow, and so do our bodies. When our internal rhythm becomes unbalanced,
*Hangry*has become quite a popular term in the last couple of years.
hangry describes this feeling of moodiness/anger some of us experience when they're particularly hungry.
We all probably know someone that gets pretty hangry when they haven't eaten in a while!
But why exactly do we get in such a bad mood when we're hungry?
Hangry-Phenomenon, and researchers are still arguing about the true cause.
When we eat something, the food gets broken down into nutrients (amino acids, glucose...) that then circle in your bloodstream and nourish your organs.
**When time goes on after you've eaten a meal, the level of those nutrients in your
My grandmother is currently 95 years old. She lives with us. She is a wonderful person, and has done so much for me during my lifetime and while I was growing up. We used to live next door to her, and we had a small gate in between the two yards; so we used to slip over to her house to go and visit all the time.
She had an enormous yard with lots of fruit trees full of beautiful peaches. One thing I can remember very clearly was these big square tables with the white nets, where she dried the fruit when there were too much fruit to eat. In her kitchen on the top shelf she had these bottles full of peaches, that we were not allowed to touch.
일생 중 어느 시점에서 최대 2명 중 1명이 실신(syncope)을 경험 합니다. 이에 따라, American College of Cardiology / American Heart Association / Heart Rhythm Society (ACC / AHA / HRS)에서는 최초로 실신 관리법 및 평가 가이드 라인을 발행하고, 모든 사람에게 유용한 대처법을 제공하였습니다.
이 가이드라인은, 부정맥, 심혈관 관련 구조, 유전학, 반사 상태, 마약 관련 실신, 거짓실신증 (pseudosyncope)을 포함한 실신의 광범위한 원인을 다룹니다.
기본적으로, 심장문제에 의한 실신인지, 비심장성 실신인지를 구분 하는 것이 중요합니다. 심장문제 여부 판단을 위해, 최초 신체검사 시, 누웠다가 앉은 후 3분간 직립했을 때 기립성 혈압변화 및 심박동의 변화를 체크해야 합니다. 심박수와 리듬뿐만 아니라 구조적 심장병의 존재를 나타내는 잡음, gallops, 또는 마찰음이 있는지 주의를 기울여 체크해
I'm proud to say that I did my homework and phew, it's been awhile since I've said that!
Previously, I posted that I was starting the "365 Days of Self-Care" challenge and as a part of that challenge, I would be working through the national bestseller Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy.
Well, I made it through the first chapter of the book and I've decided to do a short review/rating after every chapter in order to hold myself accountable. You see… depression has a way of stripping people of their motivation and concentration. So I have transformed over time from an avid bookworm to a lazy couch potato. I have been unable to read an entire book for months... my mind wanders and my eyes glaze over. It is incredibly frustrating to lose touch with one of my favorite hobbies. But I'm still trying... even if it is o
There are very nice various foods. They had new menu when I went there on Saturday. There were more wild greens called Na-Mul in Korean, rice juice called Sike, traditional Korean snack to make by myself with the ingredients on the table. I'm currently looking for many healing foods and taking a walk many times. Refresh me! Clarify it! That's like my life slogan now. I have helpers, healing foods, walking and self confidence.
I appreciated your advice @haphazard-hstead
Thank you for your warm comfort and sharing. @noganoo
Scientists can grow human tissues, bones and even whole organs. A problem with tissue regeneration is in establishing a vascular system to get blood deep into the developing tissue. Fabricating a branch network of blood vessels to deliver oxygen and nutrients can't be done with 3D printing (it's too intricate).
Researchers have now turned to plants for the answer, specifically spinach, and published their findings in the May issue of Biomaterials.
Plants work, despite fundamental differences in how they transport fluid compared to animals, because they share similar vascular structures. Plants like spinach can be decellularized (stripped of plant cells) and have cultured beating heart cells introduced. This is a proof of concept that can lead to significant advancements in tissue regeneration.
Spinach veins are
Spring finally arrived back home in Germany and it is natures way to say "Lets party“. Do you also feel the energy flowing through your body? You feel satisfied and exited for the day. You want to plan great adventures outside or you´re motivated to try new things…
That has a simple declaration. When the sun rays reach your skin, your body pours out hormones of happiness which let you feel the energy and positivity around you. One of these hormones is serotonin. It is responsible for various tasks in the body like the feeling of fullness, sugar metabolism and the setting for our day-night rhythm. Furthermore it
In Fresno for example, they found 13.6 percent of blood tests for children who were under 6 years old had come back positive for having high for lead.
According to the data that Reuters obtained, it's alleged that at least 29 different communities showed children having elevated rates of lead in their blood, rates that at least matched or surpassed those found in Flint.
Did you know that your body produces it's own cannabinoids similar to CBD and THC? We have a system of naturally occurring cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor sites throughout our entire bodies! These endocannabinoids (
endo meaning inside) and their receptors are called the Encocannabinoid System (ECS). They are primarily located in the brain and immune system but can also be found in organs, connective tissues and glands.
The ECS was discovered by an Israeli Organic Chemist, Dr Raphael Mechoulam, in the early 1990s and it's discovery shed new light on our health. The overall function of the ECS appears to be regulating homeostasis: the ability to maintain stable internal conditions. Disease or illness may be the result of failed homeostasis, so researchers are studying the ECS as a potential target for a variety of medical appli
Any time you have physical discomfort of any kind, whether you call it emotional, or physical pain within your body, it always, always means the same thing:
I have a desire that is summoning Energy, but I have a belief that is not allowing so I've created resistance in my body. The solution, every single time, to the releasing of discomfort or pain — is the relaxation and the reaching for the feeling of relief.

Hooters Restaurant, the location many people frequent “for the wings”, is iconic. No matter if you have ever been in a Hooters Restaurant or not you probably know where one is. For one customer if in Roswell Georgia his love of “wings” saved his life.
At the Roswell Georgia Hooters is a special waitress. Her name is Mariana Villarreal. She now is more because she gave part of herself for a frequent customer.
Don Thomas (no known relation to Dave), the frequent customer that loved the reportedly loved the “wings”, was well known to the staff at this particular Hooters. It became known to Mariana that Don was going to stop coming soon. When Mariana found out why Don was going to stop visiting she stepped up and offered help in the most special way.
Don was suffering from a malignant cancer. This cancer had infected both of Don’s kidneys forcing them to shut down. The sadder part is, he knew he did not have much longer to live.

Nothing remarkable happened but I spent it with the people I love doing beautiful, healing things. I can't imagine my heart being fuller than it is right now.
Love & All is Coming: Immersion30 day yoga challenge.
Ali is a beginner when it comes to yoga and I have been lazy with my practice recently, so we were both challenged in our own way by the class.
I've been putting off starting Talia's program so it was especially fulfilling for me to get back on the mat and finally tackle day 1. By the end I felt calm and grounded and proud of myself.
What a Week for Science first the Spinach Leaf Transformed Into Beating Human Heart Tissue and now this.
A blood test for cancer can now show where in the body a tumour is growing, without the need for a painful biopsy.
It is simple enough to be included in routine annual health checks alongside other tests such as for high blood pressure or cholesterol.
The test, called CancerLocator, has been developed by the University of California, and works by hunting for the DNA from tumours which circulates in the blood of cancer patients.
The Team found the DNA patterns for 10 different types of tissue, including from the liver, lung and kidneys. And they used those DNA patterns to analyze Tumours. And they found out that Tumours leave a distinctive ‘footprint’ which a computer can spot.

LITTLE SWITCHES THAT MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE: I've been trying to teach my children to let go, move along- essentially to deal with the sometimes unexpected changes that we encounter in our daily lives.
I want my children to grow into the kind of adult who rolls with punches, who can weather the storms and twists and turns of life. I want a child who can take whatever lemons life has handed them and make the best gosh darn lemonade on the market- and turn a profit too! You get my drift. But they're just one and five years old so I have to start small. Those of you with little kids know how difficult it is to make even tiny changes in their routine. After all, we are conditioned and condition them to create and maintain routines and schedules with little room for spontaneity or creativity.
So where do I start? I began by making a few little switches here and there- the old switcheroo!
World TB Day is designed to build public attention that tuberculosis today stays a virulent disease in a whole lot of the arena, inflicting the deaths of almost one-and-a-1/2 million people every year, more often than not in developing international locations. It commemorates the day in 1882 while Dr Robert Koch astounded the clinical community by using pronouncing that he had discovered the reason of tuberculosis, the TB bacillus. At the time of Koch's statement in Berlin, TB become raging thru Europe and the Americas, inflicting the demise of one out of every seven humans. Koch's discovery opened the way towards diagnosing and curing TB. The theme of World TB Day 2017 is "Unite to End TB."
Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the top 10 causes of dying worldwide.
