Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant made naturally by the human body. It has two forms, the active R form and the inactive S form. Studies do not provide any clear evidence supplementing with alpha lipoic acid provides any benefits. However, new research may indicate that supplementing with this antioxidant can greatly increase the body's own insulin sensitivity and MAY help with weight loss. I personally am a strong proponent of alpha lipoic acid supplementation and take it post work out and before high carb meals. Anecdotal evidence can be your friends when determining if certain supplements and methods work for you. Try it. See how you respond. Give it time. If it works, great. If not, move on. Keep in mind when supplementing with alpha lipoic acid if your supplement contains both R and S forms or only R. If it contains both you will need a higher dosage than if it contains exclusively R.

I don't know why I tried to save you 'cause, I can't save you from yourself, when all you give a shit about is everybody else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You need a taste of your own medicine ‘cause I'm sick to death of swallowing. Watch me take the wheel like you, not feel like you, act like nothing's real like you.

La *metatarsalgia* es una afección que produce dolor e inflamación en la bola del pie (metatarso). Podrías sufrir esta afección si participas en actividades como correr o saltar. También existen otras causas, por ejemplo, deformidades del pie y zapatos demasiado ajustados o demasiado grandes.
Los síntomas de la metatarsalgia pueden comprender:
Dolor fuerte, continuo o intenso en la bola del pie, la parte de la planta justo detrás de los dedos del pie
Dolor que empeora cuando te pones de pie, corres, doblas el pie o caminas, en especial descalzo sobre una superficie dura, y que mejora cuando descansas
Dolor agudo o punzante, entumecimiento u hormigueo en los dedos del pie
Sensación de tener una piedra en el zapato
I can't believe PA school started FIVE months ago😱😱😱 And that somehow, I've managed to cram 200+ powerpoints into my brain. PA school being fast-paced is such an understatement 💙
This semester, we have:
- A&P 2 - Pathology - Sonography - Neuroscience - Clinical Lab - EKG - Health Promotion 💙
Admittedly already feeling a bit overwhelmed (duh, what else is new?)😂 but I'm so happy for this fresh start and the opportunity to hit the ground running. I'm also excited because our basic sciences semester is OVER and now our classes are super medically-focused. Having classes that are more applicable to us in practice honestly gives me so much more enthusiasm and interest in what we're learning 😍
On of our very first courses of 2019 AND it kicks of on Valentines Day!
This six week program is based on the popular book “Healing your Life: Lessons on the path of Ayurveda” by Dr Marc Halpern.
In these fascinating, fun and interactive classes, learn how to bring the ancient teachings of Ayurveda into your life for better health.
Ayurveda is the oldest system of medicine in the world, the sister science to Yoga, and addresses healing at the root.
Ayurvedic medicine is based on the human body’s own ability to rebalance itself and prevent disease. We too often overlook this inbuilt capability to rebalance our own bodies in favour of quick-fix cures that often deliberately frustrate the body’s inner wisdom. When bedrest is the recommended way to handle influenza, we often go looking for a medication that promises to keep us on our feet. When a change to a healthy diet is recommended to prevent or combat diabetes, medication is sometimes prematurely prescribed to “control” it without first readjusting lifestyle or diet.
In the past 5,000 years of Ayurvedic medicine’s existence, natural means of coping with both minor and major health conditions have been developed through the experience and enlightened thinking of many generations of practitioners. Hippocrates, the founder of Western medicine, learned many of his skills from Ayurveda – which, by the way, means “the science of life” in Sanskrit.

Note: Cost includes a copy of the textbook (valued at $30). Students will need a neti pot and tongue-scraper for the course – available from ebay.com.au

Prednisone: fights inflammation by shutting off your immune system, leaving you powerless against foreign invaders. Most common side effects: confusion, restlessness, headache, nausea, vomiting, acne, weight gain, thinning skin, insomnia, increased appetite, increased sweating, dizziness, bloating, muscle weakness. More serious side effects: depression, anxiety, eye pain, high blood sugar, infection, changes in vision, dangerously high blood pressure, organ failure, thyroid problems, personality changes, diverticulitis, seizures/convulsions, confusion, uneven heart beats, chest pain.
Turmeric/Curcumin: fights inflammation by naturally boosting your immune system. Stimulates the production of the body's own natural steroids from the adrenal glands. Has been found to be just as effective for reducing inflammation as prednisone, cortisone, indometacin, and phenylbutazone without any of the serious side effects.
- 1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 cups raw apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 1/4 cup California Gold Dust
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend on low speed. Store in the refrigerator. When ready to drink, mix 1/4 cup elixir with 1 cup warm water. Drink every morning.
PS. In order to effectively absorb the curcumin in turmeric, it MUST be combined with black pepper. That's why I like California Gold Dust. It's already got all the good stuff in there.

Babies with ectopia cordis are born with their hearts partially or completely outside of their bodies. There are usually other organ structures that also develop abnormally. Ectopia cordis often coexists with additional heart defects as well as abdominal wall defects.
Types of ectopia cordis
There are four ectopia cordis classifications or “types” based on the position of the heart:
Cervical (3 percent of cases)
Thoracic (64 percent of cases)
Thoracoabdominal ectopia (18 percent of cases)
Abdominal ectopia (15 percent)
The type of ectopia cordis your child has can also depend on whether the heart is totally uncovered, covered by a serous membrane or covered by skin.
What causes ectopia cordis?
Ectopia cordis is extremely rare, affecting around one in 126,000 births. The cause of ectopia cordis is unknown, but males tend to be affected more often than females. There has not been a reported case of recurrence of ectopia cordis in a sibling.
For the past several weeks, many of the patients under our care had a feeding tube or were getting one placed during their hospitalization. Initially, I kept quiet about my own feeding tube not sure how much I can really share with patients while caring for them, even though many looked in curiosity. But as I saw fear, frustration and stress in many of these patients and their families I started telling them while lifting my tubes, “I also have a feeding tube”. Their reply was usually a smile, with a sense of relief and, “You understand how we feel”.
After we’d round I’d visit with these families for as long as they needed. Answering their questions, educating them on what is normal/abnormal, telling them how it is going to feel, sharing tips and tricks I and many others use, how to carry all their supplies when they go somewhere, what they will need and then at the end they would thank me for taking my time with them while telling me they are grateful to be cared for by "a doctor" who also has a feeding tube and understands.
Having a feeding tube is life changing, but I always say we can look at our feeding tubes in two ways, either as a burden (I am at times guilty of this) or we can look at it as a gift (when pertinent). There are so many people who are being kept alive by feeding tubes, myself included. If you were to remove it we wouldn’t survive.
When my surgeon went in, he found my entire stomach was stuck together. To even do the surgery he had to literally tear apart my stomach. Although now I can eat some food, it still doesn’t digest. My stomach is only working at 4%, it’s basically paralyzed. I have two feeding tubes, one goes into my small intestine which is where I receive my feedings and the other goes directly into my stomach which is where I use a syringe to pull out the food I do eat for pleasure that is just sitting in my stomach bc it doesn’t digest.
While I continue to be hooked to my lifeline I consider myself blessed to be in a position where I can help with, both, my patient and provider perspective. We all have unique gifts. I’ve been given an amazing opportunity to make a difference and I hope I’m doing it justice.

Imagine looking into the mirror and seeing a worm in your eye 👁😱 How would you react?? It can be painful due to the worm moving around your eye but it does not affect vision. .
Loiasis is known as ‘African Eye Worm’, and gets its name from its most infamous tell tale sign; the visible passing of the Loa loa worm through the eye! It is passed on to humans through the repeated bites of deerflies (also known as mango flies or mangrove flies)
Infection with the parasite can also cause repeated episodes of itchy swellings of the body known as Calabar swellings.
