Exactly what Functional Medicine doctors have been saying for a long time! #Antibiotic usage/ #infections may contribute to manic episodes in people with #mentaldisorders. Disruption of the #gut #microbiome and thus the gut-#brain axis can have far reaching effects. #FunctionalMedicine

http://www.news-medical.net/news/20160720/Antibiotic-usage-infections-may-contribute-to-manic-episodes-in-people-with-mental-disorders.aspx 
In research using patient medical records, investigators from Johns Hopkins and Sheppard Pratt Health System report that people with serious mental disorders who were hospitalized for mania were more likely to be on antibiotics to treat active infections than a group of people without a mental disorder.

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a devastating #neuroinflammatory and #neurodegenerative disease. The progressive disease process can be slowed down, and even halted/ reversed in some cases if we get to the root cause of the #inflammation and #oxidativestress (which causes degeneration of the #neurons or nerve cells in certain areas the #brain) and get rid of those causes. A new urinary #biomarker -- a phosphorylated protein that correlates with the presence and severity of #ParkinsonsDisease -- has been found. I'm sure this will be very helpful, especially in #hereditary/ #genetic cases of PD.

The #microbiome in your #gut controls how you feel daily and has far reaching effects on our human body. #Dysbiosis or bacterial/ yeast/ viral/ parasitic imbalance in the gut can lead to a whole host of diseases from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , autoimmune diseases of all kinds - ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Grave's disease, to name a few-, depression, anxiety, diabetes, insulin resistance and many more. A comprehensive digestive stool analysis and/ or an organic acid test to look for effects changes in your gut microbiome may be the most important tests for you if you suffer from any of these conditions. A #FunctionalMedicine physician can help you get to the #rootcause of your chronic disease. Don't settle for less and certainly try a #FunctionalMedicine evaluation before destining yourself to toxic drugs. I'm so glad to see more and more research coming out on the #gutmicrobiome!! http://neurosciencenews.com/chronic-fatigue-microbiome-4581/

In these U.S. cities, at least 1 in 7 kids have unsafe levels of lead in their blood, indicating exposure to a toxic metal that can lead to lifelong physical, mental and behavioral health problems.

When is this insanity, this carnage going to end!! I feel so sad, and so angry, and so helpless, all at the same time. My heart aches and I'm so sick of seeing these incidents occur every few weeks!! Is this really the new normal? And if so, why!!?? How many more need to be murdered??!! When are the world leaders going to come together and stop this! I don't know how people ever recover from this tragedy, but with a heavy heart, I send compassion, love and healing energies...and I pray tonight for our world and that which we will leave for our children....

It saddens me to know that there are some couples who are choosing Cesarean Section birth for non-emergent reasons (and yes, I know a few!) . ..And ofcourse I have said enough over the years about the longterm risks of giving #antibiotics to #infants and #children. We run at a risk of altering their gut #microbiome drastically and sometimes permanently and increase their risk for chronic diseases. I feel very strongly about these 2 issues and certainly, I do walk the talk. I had to have an emergency cesarean section due to fetal distress during my first pregnancy but I chose to have #VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Ceasarean) for my 2nd & 3rd child. I encourage all pregnant couples or who are planning to seriously consider weigh their options. These decisions could have lasting impact on the health and wellbeing of many generations of their families.

Surgical delivery and antibiotics in the first two years seem to have negative effects.

Is your air-tight #home #toxic?
Levels of pollutants can be five times higher indoors than outdoors and when vents and windows are kept closed, the chemicals have nowhere to go.
Common #pollutants include carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (#VOCs)from carpets and soft furnishings, #formaldehyde in MDF and plywood, and #phthalates which are used in #plastics.

Americans could prevent roughly 50% of all #cancer deaths by doing these four things: quit #smoking, cut back on drinking #alcohol, maintain a healthful #weight & get at least 150 minutes of #exercise each week.

Roughly half of cancer deaths in the United States could be prevented or forestalled if all Americans quit smoking, cut back on drinking, maintained a healthful weight and got at least 150 minutes of exercise each week, according to a new report.

“No other industry in the world is more adept at marketing products to its customers than #food and #beverage companies––except apparently when it comes to informing them about the possible presence of a #toxic #chemical linked to #hormone disruption and #cancer,” #BPAfree #endocrinedisruptors #metabolicsyndrome #diabetesmellitus #Insulinresistance #PCOS #functionalmedicine

Exposure to BPA has been linked to cancer, infertility, brain, nervous system and cardiovascular abnormalities, diabetes, obesity and other serious disorders.

Our goal at "Praana" IMHHC is to encourage, assist and empower our patients in developing and sustaining the proper flow of this vital energy within themselves, thereby supporting the immense natural intelligence of their body and allowing it to unfold its infinite potential. We strive to provide personalized patient-centered care rather than disease-centered care.
