Godly gift for arthritis pain

Thu, 10/05/2017 - 17:53
Big Pharma is at it again… Creating and selling a drug that causes thousands of heart attacks and strokes each year. In 2015, the FDA asked drug makers to strengthen their warning labels. Since then, most have listed their dangerous side effects on the bottle. But one manufacturer thought they didn’t have to warn people about their dangerous drug. They marketed their product as a “unique” breakthrough. They even published studies promising it was “safe for long-term use.” 1 The drug is a 7-year-old arthritis drug called Actemra. It’s made by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Roche. But a new investigation has linked it to at least 1,128 heart attack and stroke deaths. Thousands more have suffered serious side effects. These include heart failure, st...

Two weeks to bowel cancer?

Thu, 10/05/2017 - 02:50
There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in your gut, antibiotics kill off good bacteria along with the bad. When that happens, your immune system gets weak. Your risk of obesity and heart disease goes up. So do ra...

Complicated Recovery Awaits Victims Injured in Vegas Attack

Wed, 10/04/2017 - 13:44
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Their concert turned into a siege, and now their lives may become a battle. The staggering count of people injured in the shooting at a Las Vegas music festival means their recoveries are likely to be as varied as the victims themselves. Some injuries are as simple as broken bones, others gunshot wounds involving multiple surgeries and potential transplants, and all come with the added emotional scars of enduring the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history, with 59 killed. At least 130 people remained hospitalized Tuesday, with 48 listed in critical condition. Hospitals said 185 others had already been released. At Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center alone, the count of those treated included 120 people who were struck by gunfire, a glimpse of the amount of ammunition ...

A biventricular repair for Jayce ’s one-of-a-kind heart

Mon, 08/14/2017 - 13:00
Amanda Mattioli was working in Afghanistan as a government contractor and had just completed a whirlwind round of travel to three separate continents when she learned she was pregnant. The helicopter unit that took her back to the main base so she could return home for her pregnancy gave her a unit sticker to commemorate her baby’s first helicopter ride. Little did she know it would also mark the beginning of a much longer journey for her and her son, William “Jayce” James. Amanda got her first hint the ride would be bumpy at her 20-week ultrasound, when she learned Jayce’s heart was on the right side of his chest, rather than the left side. She was sent to a hospital in nearby Pittsburgh for a level 2 ultrasound, where doctors discovered Jayce had three other major heart defects: ...
