Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods To Autoimmune Disease

Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods To Autoimmune Disease | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

Another of the study’s authors, Professor David Hafler, from Yale University, said that nature had clearly not intended for the immune system to attack its host body, so he expected that an external factor was playing a part.

 

He said: ‘These are not diseases of bad genes alone or diseases caused by the environment, but diseases of a bad interaction between genes and the environment.

If you have an autoimmune disease, you should not be eating highly-processed foods. #autoimmunedisease #chronicpain

A recipe for homemade deodorant that REALLY works! ("tired of commercials; go natural & homemade")

A recipe for homemade deodorant that REALLY works! ("tired of commercials; go natural & homemade") | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it
The perfect combination of oils and dry-enhancing powders make this deodorant surprisingly effective all day long.

Recipe for Homemade Deodorant

3 tbsp virgin coconut oil
2 tbsp shea butter
3 tbsp baking soda
2 tbsp cornstarch
5 drops essential oil (lavender, orange, etc.)

Make a double boiler by placing a half-pint glass jar in the middle of a small pot of water. Bring water to a simmer. Add coconut oil and shea butter to the jar and let melt. Turn off the heat, add baking soda and cornstarch, and stir until completely smooth. Mix in the essential oil of your choice. Let cool.

At room temperature (which is about 67 degrees Fahrenheit in my house) the deodorant is hard. I scrape out ~1 tsp, roll it into a ball with my fingertips, and apply it directly under my armpits, where it melts and soaks in. In the summer, I’ll keep the jar of deodorant in the fridge, since coconut oil liquefies at 76 F. Some people transfer the deodorant to an old anti-perspirant tube to make application easier.

When you’re living with any type of chronic illness, just getting out of bed can be difficult and the thought of exercise almost impossible. Those living with autoimmune disease and chronic pain can still get the health benefits of exercise by taking it slow and doing them at home. Exercise for those with chronic illness is designed to maintain muscular function, improve health and well-being, and minimize pain.

Whooping Cough Outbreaks Among Vaccinated Older Children Increasing | Health Impact News

Whooping Cough Outbreaks Among Vaccinated Older Children Increasing | Health Impact News | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it
Southern California Public Radio reported last week that health officials are becoming worried at the number of older kids who are coming down with whooping cough in Los Angeles County. Most of these are children who have received 5 vaccines for pertussis between the ages of 2 months and 7 years. The vaccine clearly doesn't work: The effects of the vaccine does not seem to last as long as we had hoped, said Jonathan Fielding, director of the L.A. County public health department. There is a lot of work going on to understand why it is waning. And for the first time, they are admitting the fault is the vaccine, and not the small percentage of unvaccinated children: Of the pertussis cases in Los Angeles County, 8 percent were individuals who had never been vaccinated. Experts say the number is not a significant factor in the spread of pertussis.
askdrmaxwell's insight:

More and more reports are coming out stating that the pertussis vaccine is doing more harm than good. Which way do you swing in the vaccine debate?

Integrative approach reduces chronic pain and boosts quality of life, mood, stress and wellbeing | Arthritis Research UK

Integrative approach reduces chronic pain and boosts quality of life, mood, stress and wellbeing | Arthritis Research UK | Healing Chronic Pain & Disease | Scoop.it

Integrative approach 'reduces chronic pain and boosts quality of life' Published on 23 July 2013

An integrative approach to treating chronic pain, using therapies such as acupuncture, mindfulness, massage and nutritional guidance, can help to reduce pain and improve quality of life, research has shown.

Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco's Osher Centre for Integrative Medicine followed 252 patients at nine different clinical sites, all of whom were being treated for chronic pain.

There was no pre-specified treatment course; instead, each patient was assessed individually and given a specially tailored care plan, including interventions such as acupuncture, mindfulness, yoga, massage, manual therapy, diet and nutrition, psychological therapies, healing touch and other energy therapies.

In particular, the researchers wanted to see whether an integrative approach brought about improvements in pain, quality of life, mood, stress, sleep, fatigue, sense of control, overall wellbeing and work productivity.

Analysis revealed that after 24 weeks of integrative care, nearly 30 per cent of patients saw a greater than 20 per cent decrease in the severity of their pain.

There were also significant improvements in pain interference, mood, stress, quality of life, fatigue, sleep and wellbeing, according to a report in the journal Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Lead researcher Dr Donald Abrams, who specialises in cancer and integrative medicine, observed that chronic pain can be "very difficult" to treat.

"While there have been some therapeutic advances, many patients with chronic pain become resistant to conventional medical treatments or suffer adverse effects from widely used prescription medications with high addictive potential," he revealed.

"The results from this study are particularly encouraging as chronic pain is the number one condition for which patients seek care at integrative healthcare clinics."

We've produced a report about living with long-term pain and how you can help yourself. It includes information on different approaches to pain relief, who you can ask for support and self-help tips. It also includes activities for you to complete to help you record and assess your experiences - See more at: http://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/news/general-news/2013/july/integrative-approach-reduces-chronic-pain-and-boosts-quality-of-life.aspx#sthash.IR60TVzC.dpuf
