Researchers Compare Exercise, Drugs as Cardiovascular Treatments

Researchers Compare Exercise, Drugs as Cardiovascular Treatments | Health and Wellness Digest | Scoop.it

Structured exercise programs may be as effective, or even more useful, than medication to treat cardiovascular conditions. The authors evaluated and synthesized the results of 305 previous studies to compare the benefits of drug and exercise regimens on disease outcomes.  

After identifying four conditions for which exercise has been studied as a preventive technique—coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and type-2 diabetes—Naci and Ioannidis compared the efficacy of drugs used to treat these conditions to previously-reported effects of exercise.

 They found that structured physical activity was more effective than drug use in the treatment and prevention of strokes, and equally effective in the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease and diabetes.  Diuretic drugs were more successful than exercise, however, in treating heart failure.

“[Our study] will trigger debate, which is really important,” said Naci. “In cases where we have evidence of exercise, exercise seems to do really well in comparison to drugs, but there are still a lot of instances where we don’t know how exercise fares against drugs.”

Exercise Back Pain Away

Exercise Back Pain Away | Health and Wellness Digest | Scoop.it

"I am not the first person to try and exercise back pain away. According to past research and studies, nearly 80% of all Americans will experience some type of back pain in their lives. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons believes this as well, as they say 80% of us out there will encounter some type of problem with our back before we die.

 

Traditionally, the treatment for lower back pain is increasing core strength to increase flexibility on muscles that are tight, which will provide better stabilization of the spine and exercises to correct the imbalances of the muscles. The muscles that surround the spine will provide stability and support of the spinal column." http://bit.ly/18xlHOX

Fasting regenerates the immune system

Fasting regenerates the immune system | Health and Wellness Digest | Scoop.it

une 06 2014. The June 5, 2014 issue of the journal Cell Stem Cell published the finding of Valter D. Longo and colleagues at the University of Southern California (USC) of a rejuvenating effect for fasting on immune system cells.

"When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged," stated Dr Longo, who is the director of the USC Longevity Institute. "What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when youre-feed, the blood cells come back. So we started thinking, well, where does it come from?"

Dr Longo and his associates determined that the reduction in these immune system cells triggers the stem cell-based regeneration of new cells. Fasting was found to reduce an enzyme known as PKA, which, when lowered, extended the life span of simple organisms in previous research conducted by the team. "PKA is the key gene that needs to shut down in order for these stem cells to switch into regenerative mode,” Dr Longo explained. “It gives the 'okay' for stem cells to go ahead and begin proliferating and rebuild the entire system.”

“The good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting,” he continued. “Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system."

"We are investigating the possibility that these effects are applicable to many different systems and organs, not just the immune system,” he added.

You probably weren't aware there were guidelines to drinking water, and eating food. These 10 Ayurvedic tips help your body be happier while being hydrated. And when your body is happy, then you feel better.

 

Are you sitting down to drink same as in eating food? Are you sipping, not gulping, Sip, swallow, breathe, repeat - simple but powerful. Are you sipping throughout the day, not chug a lugging because your body won't absorb all of it?  Maybe this is why you have to use the bathroom all the time.  Are you drinking room temp water, not cold or ice water. Cold or ice constrict your muscles and put a damper on the digestive fire. Are you just sipping a small amount with your meals to leave room for the digestive juices to work?

 

These are just some of the many tips in this informative article. Please read the entire post to get all the juicy details on why it is critical for you to change the way you drink water.
