University to study cancer patients' mental health
USA TODAY
Cancer doesn't attack just the cells of the people who have it.
Palle Gutierrez's insight:


With the modern medicine we have created in the twenty-first century, we can start seeing much more improvement in illnesses like cancer. But medicine is not the only factor involved with helping healing illnesses. Mental health also plays an important factor. Doctors and researchers are working together to find the best treatments for cancer patients with both medicine and mental factors. It is truly amazing to see how people come together from all over the world, working together for a better cause for humanity.

Brian Goldman: Doctors make mistakes. Can we talk about that?

http://www.ted.com Every doctor makes mistakes. But, says physician Brian Goldman, medicine's culture of denial (and shame) keeps doctors from ever talking a...
Palle Gutierrez's insight:

No one is perfect, not even the doctor that is in the emergency room trying to treat the sick people for whatever condition they might have. Doctors make mistakes, but no one wants to admit it. Dr. Goldman talks about how he, being a honor graduate from medical school, has made mistakes in the emergency room, not just once nor twice but many times. Every doctor has made a mistake, and he explains how he feels when he does. No one talks about doctors making mistakes mistakes, but in reality, doctors are not suppose to be making mistakes that could endanger someone’s life.

Doctors Use Their Medical Superpowers For AIDS Baby Cure

Doctors Use Their Medical Superpowers For AIDS Baby Cure | medical | Scoop.it
How did the doctors do it? They used their amazing powers of medical science and targeted the virus with “very early treatment,” just four hours after the baby was born. The girl baby was born in Los Angeles last April, just a ...
Palle Gutierrez's insight:

The way medicine has revolutionized our world is truly remarkable. Aids is one of the most horrible disease in the world. Now doctors are able to cure babies that have this dreadful disease. If we could cure all the new generations from aids, then it won’t be long till we exterminate this disease once and for all. Thanks to modern medicine and the knowledge of doctors, they can now target the virus at an early stage and start treating it. Just like the child in Mississippi that is now aids-free!

Is medicine killing you? Lissa Rankin, MD at TEDxFargo

Lissa Rankin, MD is a physician and New York Times bestselling author of "Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself", and the founder o...
Palle Gutierrez's insight:

The video is mainly about how we, as Americans, are getting the wrong medications for our needy body. Lissa Rankin believes in curing illnesses the natural way. Without thousands of pills being poured into our bodies but instead, by releasing stress. Stress is a major contributor to many diseases and sicknesses. Stress, doesn’t let someone live their life the way it was meant to be. In order for Americans to get better, we need to get rid of stress and all the negativities it brings. We think that by taking a bunch of pills, we are going to feel better, but Dr. Rankin believes that just by relieving the stress we will feel better.

Will: Good health vs. medicine - The Columbian

Will: Good health vs. medicine
The Columbian
So as we wallow waist deep in the muddy debate about health care, we should remember that the relationship between increased investment in medicine and improvements in health is complex and tenuous.
Palle Gutierrez's insight:

This article explains the differences between good health and medicine. Sure medicine was created to help sustain a healthy life, but they are not the same. Good health is more like a choice for a healthy lifestyle that someone makes rather than a easy way to become healthy. One has to make good healthy habits like never smoking tobacco, eating healthy, and not dealing with a lot of stress. Medicine is something given by doctors to help establish a healthy body. But if you lives a healthy lifestyle, then you won’t really need any medication with useful chemicals. The way healthcare is going and with all the expenses of medication, its much better for one to maintain a healthy life then depend on medicine to do it for you.

The Dirty Little Secrets of Doctors Requests for Medical Records ... | medical | Scoop.it
What's a medical scribe? Just as the title sounds, it's a person who records everything the doctor does or says into your medical record. Sometimes the person is in the room. Sometimes not. There are definite pros and cons to ...
Palle Gutierrez's insight:

Not all professionals are truly "professionals." In this article, Trisha Torrey talks about how medical scribes and doctors work together to gain an extra profit. It sickens me that a professional person like a doctor would lie for more money. We as patients should be careful with what the doctor does and always check our medical bill. There are things that doctors may not really do but would tell a medical scribe to wright down so it can show up in our medical bill. Medical expenses are already high enough where we can not afford such cost. We must have trust in our doctors but with acts like that you can't trust even the person that is suppose to make you better.

Doctors and Nurses Use Holistic Medicine… So Why Won’t They Share it With YOU? by Sylvia Anderson - Holistic - InsidersHealth.com

Doctors and Nurses Use Holistic Medicine… So Why Won’t They Share it With YOU? by Sylvia Anderson - Holistic - InsidersHealth.com | medical | Scoop.it

We are so used to believing that traditional medicine is the only answer for our health care. But in more recent years, alternative and holistic medicine is taking center stage. Is there validity in these “new” methods of treatment? If so, why are doctors and nurses using these practices but not recommending them to us?


Via InsidersHealth
Palle Gutierrez's insight:

This article is about how doctors and nurses have an inside scoop on true health care. They know the secrets for living a healthy and disease free life. Medical workers are aware of the benefits of complementary and alternative medicine. We as patients should also take advantage of the secretes which are nurturing relationships, exercise, whole foods, adequate sleep, and sun blocks. The lifestyle choices we as humans make daily will affect our future and body.

UPDATE — 9:07 p.m. ET: The drug company has reportedly reversed their decision and will now provide the much-needed medicine to 7-year-old Josh Hardy. — He's survived four battles with kidney cancer, heart failure and ...
Palle Gutierrez's insight:

This is a prime example of how doctors and scientists have risk the life of one person to save millions of other lives. Although the drug companies have a big influence too.They are more concerned with making money than saving just one child. In this article, 7 year-old Josh has cancer and a particular drug will cure it. His family, friends, and even strangers want to help him. They offered the drug company money to pay off the medicine for Josh, but the drug company denied it, saying that they can’t make an exemption. This is a crude example of reality in the medicine world.
