4 Little-Known Causes of Restless Legs Syndrome

Restless legs syndrome is a seemingly simple condition, but the cause is often difficult to pinpoint. Find out four potential contributing factors and how to address them.

Acupuncture and Herbs Relieve Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)

Acupuncture and herbs alleviate restless leg syndrome (RLS). Researchers tested two forms of treatments and the findings indicate that acupuncture combined with herbal medicine is both safe and effective for the treatment of RLS. The total effective rate for acupuncture plus herbs was 95.24%. 

Sifrol | Drugs.com

What is Sifrol? Sifrol is a medicine that contains the active substance pramipexole. It is available as ‘immediate-release’ white tablets (round: 0.088, 0.7 and 1.1 mg; oval: 0.18 and 0.35 mg) and as ‘prolonged-release’ white tablets (round: 0.26 and 0.52 mg; oval: 1.05, 1.57, 2.1, 2.62 and 3.15 mg). Immediate-release tablets release the active substance immediately, and prolonged-release tablets release it slowly over a few hours. What is Sifrol used for? Sifrol is used to treat the symptoms of the following diseases: Parkinson’s disease, a progressive brain disorder that causes shaking, slow movement and muscle stiffness. Sifrol can be used either on its own or in combination with levodopa (another medicine for Parkinson’s disease), at any stage of disease including the later stages when levodopa starts becoming less effective; moderate to severe restless-legs syndrome, a disorder where the patient has uncontrollable urges to move the limbs to stop uncomfortable, painful or odd sensations in the body, usually at night. Sifrol is used when a specific cause for the disorder cannot be identified. The medicine can only be obtained with a prescription.

How to Perform an Enema at Home (with Pictures) - wikiHow

An enema is, by definition, the injection of liquid through the anus to motivate evacuation. Enemas are great for cleansing your colon and have many additional benefits. But how can you perform an enema at home? The simple truth is that it's easy and relatively safe. If you want a quick, simple, and effective way of cleansing your colon and liver, or you're sick of being constipated, follow this advice to freedom. This article will show you how to perform two different types of enemas — the cleansing enema and the retention enema.

Could Coffee Enemas and Vitamins Save Your Life?

June 15, 2000 (Arlington, Va.) -- After months of delays and years of debate, researchers are finally enrolling patients for a study designed to see if an unorthodox treatment regimen, including vitamins and coffee enemas, can shrink the tumors of patients with cancer of the pancreas. The controversial method already has kept nine of 11 patients who took part in a preliminary study alive for a year, while another person survived for five years, says Nicholas Gonzalez, MD. Gonzalez has received $1.4 million from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, in partnership with the National Cancer Institute, to do a three-year study of the treatment. Gonzalez is director of the Nutritional Research and Educational Foundation in New York. If the FDA were to approve the method for treating pancreatic cancer, it would be "a major revolution," Gonzalez tells WebMD. "This would be the first time that an alternative therapy went through the testing process by the best and most stringent of academic criteria, and got approved as a treatment." Chemotherapy and surgery are the standard treatments for this very aggressive type of cancer, but they're often ineffective.

Traditional Herbal Medicine Kills Pancreatic Cancer Cells, Researchers Report -- ScienceDaily

An herb used in traditional medicine by Middle Eastern countries may help fight pancreatic cancer. Researchers have found that thymoquinone, an extract of nigella sativa seed oil, blocked pancreatic cancer cell growth and killed cells by enhancing programmed cell death. The findings suggest that thymoquinone could eventually have use as a preventative in those who have had surgery and chemotherapy or who are at risk of developing cancer.

Acupuncture Treatment For Parkinson’s Disease with Tuina and Tong Ren Therapy |

Acupuncture is used around the world as a complementary treatment for Parkinson’s. Due to the ability of acupuncture to work on a broad range of body systems, it has a valid role in the treatment and maintenance of Parkinson’s. Research has shown that acupuncture provides symptomatic improvement in many cases and some studies have shown that it could be effective in greatly slowing the progression of the disease if treatment is offered early enough in the disease course. As reported in my June 30 (2009) Research Synopses, acupuncture was found to create significant effects in motor function even when using distal points (points away from the scalp, in this case). This study shows how acupuncture can create and foster deep connections within the body and brain.

Acupuncture for Parkinson’s Disease – Mechanisms Explored, Safer Than Rapamycin |

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a common condition to be seen by an acupuncturist and there is much that can be done to limit the affects of the condition and slow the progress. I have written previously about some of the basics of our particular approach to Parkinson’s. That article also includes some more general information about Parkinson’s from both western and eastern aspects. That there is benefit from acupuncture and other aspects of Chinese Medicine is fairly clear based on practitioner/clinical outcomes and recent research. What isn’t entirely clear, is “how” acupuncture specifically may help. In a recent study by researchers from the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and other area institutions, the point GB 34 was explored specifically for its role in modulating the biochemistry behind Parkinson’s.

How can I find my friends in Skype?

Skype is better with friends. You can search and find friends using the search bar in Skype.  You can search your friends' names, Skype name, email address or phone number. We then help you narrow down your search results by displaying the number of mutual contacts you share, making it even easier to find the right people.  Find your friends by their location Too often your friends may have common names. You can zero in on them by using a location as well. For example, just "John Smith London" or more specifically "John Smith in London". Keep in mind your friend would need to have their location information in their profile for Skype to find them.  Manage your profile settings You may add or edit information in your Skype profile such as your location, email, or phone number to make it easier for your friends to find you. If you prefer not to be included in the public search directory or suggested friends, then you can opt out here. Opting out will make it more difficult for your friends to connect with you. If your friends have your verified phone number or email address in their address book, they will still be able to find you on Skype.

BBC World Service - The Documentary, Breaking News

The media in the United States is broken. Most journalists and media organisations dismissed the possibility of Trump Presidency. Many backed Hillary Clinton to win. It has left them in a precarious position with serious questions about their credibility, fuelled by the president and his inner circle who have branded them ‘enemies of the state’. Kyle Pope, editor of the Columbia Journalism Review asks how the media should respond to a hostile administration and more importantly how can they gain the trust of the vast numbers of people who think they are hopelessly biased.

The depressed brain in Parkinson's disease: Implications for an inflammatory biomarker

The Need for a Biomarker in Parkinson's Disease Parkinson’s disease (PD) is an increasingly prevalent neurodegenerative disorder currently diagnosed solely on the presence of motor symptoms (i.e., tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, and postural instability) and their response to dopamine replacement therapy. A major unmet need is the limited number and failure of clinical trials with putative neuroprotective agents intended to halt or delay disease progression. Three main reasons account for this development: (i) At the time of the clinical diagnosis >50% of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra have degenerated (1) and other neurotransmitter systems (e.g., norepinephrine, serotonin and acetylcholine) have been affected, indicating that the disease is already at an advanced stage (2); (ii) some reports suggest low accuracy for a PD clinical diagnosis, with up to 50% misdiagnosis in early disease (i.e., within 5 y of diagnosis) (3); and (iii) there is still no objective meaningful endpoint for clinical trials for early PD other than the Unified PD Rating Scale (UPDRS), a rater-based assessment of symptom severity. Thus, there is a need for objective biomarkers that either are neuropathophysiological manifestations of the disease (marker of state), track the speed of its progression (marker of rate), or are present in at-risk PD (marker of trait) (4). Adding complexity to this endeavor is the fact that PD is very heterogeneous in its clinical, neuropathological, and probably also pathophysiological presentation, with various subtyping strategies based on motor and also nonmotor symptoms recently proposed (5). Given the disease’s complexity and …

Connection between gut microorganisms and Parkinson’s disease

A new connection between the microbiome of the gut and human health and disease has been made. Here Parkinson's disease, along with the medications to treat Parkinson's, alter the composition of the trillions of bacteria that make up the gut microbiome.

Fecal Microbiota Transplantation: Current Applications, Effectiveness, and Future Perspectives

Abstract Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is the infusion of liquid filtrate feces from a healthy donor into the gut of a recipient to cure a specific disease. A fecal suspension can be administered by nasogastric or nasoduodenal tube, colonoscope, enema, or capsule. The high success rate and safety in the short term reported for recurrent Clostridium difficile infection has elevated FMT as an emerging treatment for a wide range of disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, myoclonus dystopia, multiple sclerosis, obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and autism. There are many unanswered questions regarding FMT, including donor selection and screening, standardized protocols, long-term safety, and regulatory issues. This article reviews the efficacy and safety of FMT used in treating a variety of diseases, methodology, criteria for donor selection and screening, and various concerns regarding FMT.

Link between microbiome in the gut, Parkinson's discovered -- ScienceDaily

There is growing evidence showing a connection between Parkinson's disease -- a neurodegenerative condition -- and the composition of the microbiome of the gut. A new study from researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham shows that Parkinson's disease, and medications to treat Parkinson's, have distinct effects on the composition of the trillions of bacteria that make up the gut microbiome.

Amazon.fr - Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body's Most Underrated Organ - Giulia Enders, Jill Enders, David Shaw - Livres
The key to living a happier, healthier life is inside us. Our gut is almost as important to us as our brain or our heart, yet we know very little about how it works. In Gut, Giulia Enders shows that rather than the utilitarian and let s be honest somewhat embarrassing body part we imagine it to be, it is one of the most complex, important, and even miraculous parts of our anatomy. And scientists are only just discovering quite how much it has to offer; new research shows that gut bacteria can play a role in everything from obesity and allergies to Alzheimer s. Beginning with the personal experience of illness that inspired her research, and going on to explain everything from the basics of nutrient absorption to the latest science linking bowel bacteria with depression, Enders has written an entertaining, informative health handbook. Gut definitely shows that we can all benefit from getting to know the wondrous world of our inner workings. In this charming book, young scientist Giulia Enders takes us on a fascinating tour of our insides. Her message is simple if we treat our gut well, it will treat us well in return. But how do we do that? And why do we need to? Find out in this surprising, and surprisingly funny, exploration of the least understood of our organs.
