Do you know someone you wish would have surgery? Weight-loss surgery results in positive changes in social life

Do you know someone you wish would have surgery? Weight-loss surgery results in positive changes in social life | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it
New research shows that people who have bariatric surgery to treat obesity report an overall improvement in quality of life issues after surgery, from their relationships to their medical conditions.

 

Dr. Veronica Note:

After having seen multiple patients who have undergone bariatric surgery, I've noted that there seems to be an immediate change in personality. People suddenly feel they are able to have control over something they have felt helpless about.

 

Relationships likely improve as post-surgically the receipeints are more pleasant to deal with because they feel better about themselves and better physically.

I think we laugh because we are scared. What do you think?Mental illness sans cliches

I think we laugh because we are scared. What do you think?Mental illness sans cliches | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it
DENNY CRANE calls it "mad cow," but viewers of "Boston Legal" know William Shatner 's character is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

 

Dr. Veronica Note:

Mental illness whether is be Altzheimer's or OCD, depression or schizophrenia is scary to everyone. People are less scared of the murderous rage and more afraid of seeing themselves or a family member as that person walking down the street waving their hands in the air wearing 3 pairs of glasses. Deos anyone want to be that old person who is running away and getting lost and doesn't even know who they or their children are?

 

Its much easier to make mental illness into a laughing matter. We laugh at issues that we feel we have no control over to lighten the situation.

 

Perhaps we need to acknowledge more like these televesion shows that many who have a mental condition are quite productive and sometimes the productivity and creativity springs out of the mental differences.

LHow do we get people to actually exercise though? =>ife with Cancer Improves with Exercise

Exercise improves quality of life for both cancer survivors and patients currently undergoing treatment, researchers found.

 

Dr. Veronica Note:

Exercise should be prescribed for every chronic condition. The issue is getting people to actual comply. Perhaps every hospital and cancer treatment facility ought to have a fitness center. When the patient is cleared for activity, part of the regimen should be a visit to the fitness facility after each visit and before going home.

Infographic: Are prescription drugs taking over the classroom? | Articles | Main | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it
Learn about the rise in prescription drug use among students and see some of the dangers.

 

Dr. Veronica Note:

Kids are taking ADHD drugs to get better grades. Does this mean that parents who are not medicating their kids are putting their children at a disadvantage?

 

Is ADHD actually increasing or are there other factors that are going on to make it look like this condition is a problem? Interesting that ADHD is a condition of Western classroom culture.

 

ADHD drugs are gotten mostly from other kids who have the prescription rather than from a doctor. We have spawned a new generation of drug pushers in the upper eschelons of society. And along with that a different type of drug addict.

 

Taking ADHD is akin to steroids for the brain. Why is it not considered cheating like steroid use in sports by students?

 

The dangers of ADHD drugs have been well laid out yet 81% of student feel amphetamines are only slightly dangerous and only 2% perceived them as very dangerous.

Were you a test tube baby? =>Test Tube Babies Reach Major Milestone: 5 Million Born Since 1978 | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it

Dr. Veronica Note:

Although fertility assistance has become main stream, few people admit that they are a test tube baby and parents still do not neceassarily openly discussed their use of assisted fertility.

 

Even a bigger discussion is how this has become a designer industry only available to those with means. The right to have your genetic child seems to be only a right of the few who can afford to foot the bill. This means that women with known lower rates of fertility such as African-American women are in essence much less likely to be able to birth a child.

I would like to see the complete demographics of these SuperAgers. More screening needs to be done to find more and more SuperAgers so we can quickly see what are the comonalities of this group. Then we can make recommendations to try to have more and more people become SuperAgers
