Stem cells to Treat AIDS and Diabetes

stem cell aidsAirlangga University, Surabaya, managed to develop stem cell utilization methods in the treatment of AIDS and diabetes mellitus. The research team invited the doctors to test them to the patient.

Lead researcher stem cells University of Airlangga (Airlangga University) Fedik Abdul Rantam said stem cell research utilization began in 2007. Unair to start with the development of bone and tendon reconstruction. "Then we developed for the reconstruction of cardiovascular and immune systems. The results of in vitro (preclinical testing in the lab) fine. Now we also are preclinical testing (testing to animals) and so far is quite positive, "said Fedik, Friday (6 / 11) in Surabaya, East Java.

The research is believed to be to treat, among others, AIDS and diabetes is known no cure. Their research allows the body to form healthy new cells. With stem cells, the body can create new immune cells in people with AIDS. As for the people with diabetes, stem cells can form more pancreatic beta cells of normal.

Professor of Virology Unair said, the key lies in the methods that allow adult stem cells back into stem cells young. Young stem cells can develop into anything, depending on what will be used for.

The method is important because the team only took stem cells from adults. Stem cells was not likely to thrive again, except to follow their home network. "Only embryonic stem cells that can develop into anything. Ethics does not allow the team to take embryonic stem cells because the same of killing, "he said.

Embryonic stem cells could be obtained only when the fetus was only a few days. Obtaining embryonic stem cells will be the same as fatal fetus.

"As doctors, we are bound by oath to save lives, not eliminate it. This method (reversal development of stem cells) allows us to save lives without losing another life, "he said.

Fedik invited the doctors and clinics to take advantage of their research results to patients. The government is also expected to facilitate the utilization of these.

"So far, stem cells are already dimudakan we tidurkan not to develop. Too bad if the research results put to sleep just like that, "he said. Chairman of the Diabetes and Nutrition Center Dr Soetomo General Hospital, Surabaya, Askandar confirmed, it waited for the development of research Fedik team.

Parties Diabetes and Nutrition Center is hoping there is a method of treatment that allows people with diabetes actually cured. "The drugs currently available only to control the impact. Can not truly heal because there are damaged cells, "he said.

Askandar agree, there should be encouragement from the government so that research results can be applied. Moreover, the research process undertaken was not unethical. "If you can, and successful clinical trials, this will be a history of treatment," he said.

Smoking benefits are only myths!

Five Tips Prevent Memory Losses

Tips Prevent Memory LossesMost of the time memory losses can be triggered by too many tasks at once (multitasking) or effect from menopause, but do not give up by accepting it as a natural thing. This article will explain to what you should do so memory losses can stay away from you longer than you expected:

Flossing every day
. The formation of plaque on teeth is not good for our brain, and then the memory. According to Michael Roizen, MD, co-author YOU-The Owner's Manual: An Insider's Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger, plaques that form between the teeth can trigger an immune reaction that attacks the blood vessels, so blood vessels can not send nutrients to the brain. The solution? Do not forget flossing every day. Keep forgetting? Then keep your floss in your makeup case, it would be easily seen.

Multitasking at the gym. Just as body exercise that keep your body in good shape, so does exercising your brain, it will be in good shape too. Do both it will bring a double benefits. How to multitasking at the gym? Try to fill in a crossword puzzle while pedaling stationary bikes or listen to language lessons or iPod while running. Scientists say, train your body and mind at the same time can rejuvenate brain cells. Do not like multitasking? Fill out the crossword puzzle right after the exercise, when the brain is still really energetic.

Consume more fish. Omega-3 contained in fish such as salmon and fortified foods such yogurt for instance, is a super food for memory which is the DHA, a type of omega-3, effectively reducing inflammation and improving arterial nerve protective layer. Again, according to Roizen, will reduce memories losses due to age factor, reducing the risk of dementia, depression, and accelerate the intellect.

Sports. Increasing the heart rate 3 times a week for 20 minutes, even just walking, will increase the oxygen in the brain that helps the growth of new cells. According to Sam Wang, Ph.D., associate professor of neuroscience at Princeton University, aerobic exercise is as effective as the other brain training activities. You don’t even have to go to the gym. Studies show that physical activity of moderate to strong, even just once a week, proved to be able to help you maintain cognitive function up to 30%.

Use chopsticks. According to Maoshing Ni, PhD, author of Second Spring: Dr. Mao's Hundreds of Natural Secrets for Women to Revitalize and Regenerate at Any Age, studies show that engaging in activities that involve the fingertips will directly stimulate the brain. Activities with your fingertips, such as using chopsticks, spinning, or even twirling a pen or pencil between the fingers can also help the brain; all this fingertips activity helps blood circulation to brain. As we all aware good blood circulation will help remove waste products which prevent nutrients reaching the brain.

Anger management everyone can practice

Anger ManagementOne of the ways used to manage anger is a method of distraction. When the heart is controlled by anger, just do things that can confiscate your concentration, like writing letters or doing tasks that are not yet settled. You can also listen to music, washing cars, cleaning houses, visiting malls to shopping activity.

For those who are aggressive, they can get over the anger through sports, or something like boxing. Provide sandbags as a target and pretend it to be the object of your anger is one powerful alternative. Meanwhile, cleaning up your house will help your mind to organize things, and the side result is neatly place.

Perhaps at first, it will turn out to be a bit difficult, because your heart and mind are still controlled by anger. But, do keep exercise. Let your concentration torn between doing something and thinking about the anger. After quite some time, you will get used to it and be aware that anger is just something natural that does not need the act of yelling, screaming or punching.

But, if one day you're really angry, the first step to remember is to take a deep breath, and exhale slowly. Do it several times and always bear in mind that anger is always preceded by unconscious and ended with regret. So, if you want to be controlled by the consciousness, and do not want to experience regret, why should you angry?

8 Foods That Help You on Fat-fighting!

Fat FightingFat-fighting is something we hear almost everyday, if you are dealing with fat fighting right now or just want to have a good and healthy life, it is strongly recommended always to have the following items added into your daily meal.

Almonds, yummy nuts that are high in alpha-linolenic acid, which can accelerate your metabolism of fats. In fact, dieters who ate 3 ounces of almonds daily slashed their weight and body-mass index by 18 percent, while those who skipped the nuts reduced both numbers less— just 11 percent—a study in the International Journal of Obesity revealed. Chomp almonds à la carte (limit yourself to 12 per serving to keep calories in check). Go nuts!

are nature's candy! Turns out they're also your body's best friends. Strawberries, raspberries and other vitamin C–spiked fruit can supercharge your workout, helping you burn up to 30 percent more fat, research from Arizona State University at Mesa has found. If they're not in season, buy the little gems frozen in a bulk-sized bag so you'll always have them on hand to whip up a Berry Bliss Smoothie or Strawberry-Sunflower Pops, regardless of whether berries are in season.

Adding 1/4 teaspoon to your plate may prevent insulin spike—an uptick that tells your body to store fat. Sprinkle it on your morning cereal or coffee or on your yogurt in the A.M., or savor it in Apple-Cinnamon-Raisin Oatmeal.

, it's heaven on a soft pretzel, but mustard may also be a weight loss wonder. Turmeric, the spice that gives mustard its color, may slow the growth of fat tissues, a study in the journal Endocrinology finds. Use it on sandwiches instead of mayo, or sprinkle turmeric on cauliflower pre-roasting to give it a kick. Try it on tuna salad—I promise it adds zest.

Oranges, this citrus fruit, which contains fat-blasting compounds known as flavones, deserves to be your main squeeze. Women who ate the most flavones had a much lower increase in body fat over a 14-year period, a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition notes. Eat oranges sliced or swig fresh OJ (including pulp!) to get the best benefit from the fruit.

Soybeans, reason to toss a half cup on your salad? Soybeans are rich in choline, a compound that blocks the absorption of fat and breaks down fatty deposits. Oh, and they're addictively delish! But if breast cancer runs in your family, experts suggest you should talk to your doc before adding soy to your diet.

Sweet potatoes, the colorful spuds' high-fiber content means they keep your insulin steadier than their white sisters, which means less fat packed on your hips, research finds. Top a small baked tater with lowfat cottage cheese for a tempting side dish, or whip up Miso Soup With Sweet Potato Dumplings.

Swiss cheese, Calcium-rich foods reduce fat-producing enzymes and increase fat breakdown, and Swiss has more calcium than many of its cheesy peers. Choose the reduced-fat variety, such as Sargento. Slip it into your sandwich, put it on top of high-fiber crackers or use it for a healthier grilled cheese. Yum!

Improve your memory!

Although future medical advancements will hopefully find a cure for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, most folks will be left to fend for themselves. So, to keep your mind and memory sharper than the rest, below is a short list of secret memory enhancers

Believe it or not, chewing gum can actually improve alertness and memory. At least that’s the conclusion that two medical studies reported in the journal Appetite back in 2002 and 2004, respectively. Although the exact reasoning behind why gum would enhance memory isn’t yet clear, one simple explanation said that chewing gum increases heart rate, which subsequently increases blood flow to the brain.

A slew of research over the past decade has confidently shown that exercise can be a secret memory enhancer. In fact, just cutting calories may help you remember where you left your keys. According to a 2008 study in the journal PNAS, eating a calorie-restricted diet had beneficial effects on memory performance in healthy elderly subjects. Even a simple exercise is a better secret memory enhancer than none at all. Better yet, it’s free.

As one of the most hotly contested food items, caffeine has strong backers on both sides of the health debate. Some swear by its benefits while others vilify caffeine for its unhealthy effects. However, almost no one can argue the effect of caffeine on alertness (and consequently memory). According to various studies conducted in the last five years, caffeine boosts short-term memory, protects older women against memory loss and may even reverse Alzheimer’s memory loss (at least in mice).

Daytime naps

Our next secret memory enhancer might actually contradict the last. After all, it’ll be hard to catch a little daytime shut-eye if you’re all hopped up on java beans. If you’re into daydreaming, you’ll be happy to know that science strongly supports the idea that daytime napping improves your declarative memory. That’s the memory you use to store facts (for example, the memory used when cramming for a final exam).

Rounding off our list of secret memory enhancers is alcohol, a substance that men are probably familiar with. Although this list is sounding more and more like justification for a bunch of bad habits, alcohol make that moderate levels of alcohol may actually enhance memory. Recent research has found that having a daily drink or two may improve memory and may even help prevent dementia. However, higher levels of alcohol may actually impair memories or may even reinforce negative ones!

Electronic Stimulation of Muscles to Fight Wrinkles

Fight WrinklesWhen considering the methods available to fight the most troublesome signs of old age, wrinkles and saggy skin, we all know that they are quite limited: either Botox, which freezes the muscles of the face, or fillers that add more volume to the face, making it plumper. However, as of late, a third option has started gaining more ground: electronic stimulation of the facial muscles is supposed to fight wrinkles and other signs of aging, a piece in the Daily Mail reveals.

Electronic stimulation of the muscles is definitely not a new technology, as some of us have probably already used it on parts of our bodies that needed more toning, thanks to home products that work the abs, bums and thighs. However, it’s just now that it’s starting to be used for the face, after research has shown that, by working out the muscles, wrinkles and saggy skin appear later on and are less obvious than without the extra “exercise.”

“Latest research has shown that it’s loss of volume, as much as wrinkles and sagging skin, that contributes towards making us look old – hence the explosion in the number of women opting for plumping fillers. […] Experts believe working the facial muscles regularly can do just that. But while exercising muscles in the body is relatively straightforward, giving facial muscles a good workout is harder. This is where electronic stimulation, or electro-stim, comes in. Essentially, it involves running a micro-current to the facial muscles, which causes them to contract, firming the muscles and consequently making them bigger.” the Daily Mail writes.

Of course, this is a procedure that beauty salons all over the world have been using for years. Still, it’s just now that it’s becoming widely accessible, with home options being released, which means any woman (or man) in need of a good facial electro-stim can do so for a fraction of the cost – and hope that what some doctors say about plumpness and volume being the closest thing to the fountain of youth holds water. In the UK, for instance, Slendertone Face comes out next month at Harrods and women are so hyped about the product, that there is already a waiting list of more than 2,000 customers.

“For [£299] you get what looks like a pair of high-tech headphones and a rechargeable headset system with a hand-held controller. The idea is that the two pads, which transmit electrical current through the skin, sit on either side of the face, in front of the ear. At this point is a specific nerve that has branches to all of the major muscles of the face, treating the whole face in one go.” the Mail writes. Studies say this device, along with the many others like it, works wonders: to determine if this is actually true, all those interested have to get in line and brace themselves for a long waiting.

Better Mood Fast

According to a recent study, less than a half-hour of moderate exercise can substantially improve your mood. In the study, which was conducted at the University of Vermont, “everyone in the exercise group showed significant positive effects on mood—regardless of age, gender, or fitness level—for up to 12 hours after only 20 minutes of moderate-intensity cycle exercise,” says lead author Jeremy Sibold.

The participants worked at 60% of aerobic max capacity, which is the equivalent of light cycling or brisk walking. Some evidence suggests that exercise may boost feel-good endorphins, relieve muscle tension, help you sleep, and reduce the stress hormone cortisol.

According to the Mayo Clinic, it also increases body temperature, which can have a calming effect. If nothing else, it gives you a break from thinking about the things that are making you depressed or stressed. It may even be helpful just to get out and interact with other people. So, the next time you’re having a bad day, go for a walk with friends or work out to your favorite music.

Diet Myths Exposed

If you're so committed to losing weight that you refuse to eat a baked potato for fear of eating empty carbs, you might be missing out on important nutrients and backing your diet into a corner. Open your mind to the truth behind these diet and weight myths and learn how to enjoy some of your favorite foods again.

Myth 1: Potatoes and bread are fattening.
Actually: It's just the opposite. Starchy vegetables and bread (whole-grain bread, that is) are quality carbs needed to fuel every part of you, from your brain to your muscles. What gets you into trouble is how you eat them: Smear butter on a slice of whole-wheat bread or deep-fry potatoes and you can double, triple, or quadruple the calories.

Myth 2: Drinking a glass of water before a meal curbs appetite
Actually: Yes and no. Water tames appetite if it's incorporated into food, such as soup, or a thick drink, like V8 100% Vegetable Juice. Apparently, when water is bound to food, digestion is slower, explains Elizabeth Somer, RD, author of 10 Habits That Mess Up a Woman's Diet.

That's why women in one study found chicken-rice soup more satisfying than chicken-rice casserole and a glass of water -- even though the soup had 27% fewer calories! One exception to this rule: It's easy to confuse hunger and thirst, so if you find yourself craving something -- but what? -- drink a big glass of water and wait a few minutes. You may find that's what your body really wanted.

Myth 3: Shellfish is high in cholesterol.
Actually: On the one hand, it's true: Just 3 ounces of shrimp delivers more than a third of your daily cholesterol. But there's a surprising flip side to this story: Shrimp is low in saturated fat -- the kind that becomes artery-clogging bad cholesterol -- and has a smidgen of heart-healthy omega-3s. In fact, University of Southern California researchers discovered that eating shellfish, such as shrimp, every week reduced heart attack risk by 59 percent!

Myth 4: The occasional burger and fries won't kill you
Actually: It depends on your definition of "occasional." If occasional means every Friday night and then some, well, you may be pushing it. But if it means every few months, and you're fit, and you've got good numbers (i.e., weight, waist size, cholesterol, blood pressure), AND you're chowing down on vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and other nutritious fare most other days, hey, you'll live. But few of us are that perfect. If you do occasionally indulge, offset the effects of a fat fiesta with a brisk 90-minute walk afterward.

Six Moves That Help You Save Money

While everyone manages his money differently, there's value in trying strategies that have been successful for other people.

Here are some moves that helped many:

Trash Your TV

The average American watches more than 30 hours of TV a week. Getting rid of my TV helped me find the time to become a freelance writer. The same idea applies to video games and Web surfing.

There are also the upfront costs for the TV itself, cable service and all the extras. The financial impact of TV can be significant.

Get Organized

I had far too much junk in my house a few years back. The closets and storage areas were full of stuff I hadn't used for years. I needed more space and buying a bigger house wasn't an option.

I made a simple rule: For every new item I bought, five had to go. Eventually, I lowered the number to two. Some went to charity or in the trash. I sold others on eBay and Craigslist. In the process, I became more selective about my purchases and made a decent amount of money selling stuff I didn't need.

Start a Part-Time Business

Many people aspire to be part of a profession that's outside of their current field. For most people, the only way to get that job is to create it yourself. I started writing on the side while working full-time in a different job. Eventually, my writing became the primary source of my income. If there's something you enjoy doing that could be turned into a business, there's no harm in giving it a try.

Anticipate Big Purchases

Saving used to be a struggle for me, particularly for large items, such as washers and dryers. I used them without thinking that one day I would need to replace them if they broke down.

To solve the problem, I started setting aside a little bit of money each time I washed a load of clothes, like you would in a laundromat. This tactic ensures that I have money when it's time to replace these appliances. It has also encouraged me to wash my clothes less because I'm paying each time I use the machines.

Take a Tax Class

When I first got out of college, I tried to do my taxes myself. Dealing with income forms from three states proved too frustrating, so I went to an expert. A friend suggested I take a basic tax class to get a better handle on my filings. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I've done my own taxes since then. I save more just by knowing the deductions and credits for which I'm eligible.

Drop a Habit

It's not just bad habits, like smoking, that cost you a ton of money; everyday expenses that seem marginal can also cut into your budget. For example, I was able to wean myself off soda and sports drinks, a habit that cost $1,000 a year. Drinking tap water has been good for my wallet and my health.

Green Tea Booster

Green Tea BoosterDid you know that most of the free-radical fighters in green tea never make it to your bloodstream? But there's a solution.

To get a better grasp on the healthy catechins in your green tea, flavor your cup with a squeeze of citrus juice.

Green Tea Booster
Catechins -- the antioxidants in green tea famous for lowering your risk of chronic disease -- quickly lose their power in your intestine. In fact, as much as 80% of the catechins in green tea are never absorbed. The solution to boosting absorption, researchers recently found, is as simple as flavoring your tea with freshly squeezed and strained lemon, orange, lime, or grapefruit juice.

Taking Tea with C
The vitamin C in citrus may help with absorption by increasing the acidity in your small intestine. Other unidentified substances in the juice probably lend a hand, too. Researchers found a 50-50 mix had the greatest catechin-preserving effect, and lemon did it best, closely followed by orange, lime, and, in last place, grapefruit.

If you do take steps to boost the power of your green tea, you may even get a few added benefits.

* It may help you lose weight. At least one study shows green tea can stimulate moderate weight loss.
* It may help keep your knees young and strong catechins fight inflammation and arthritis.
* It can help your skin look great if used in conjunction with an antioxidant cream. Dab it on.
* It can help you stay sharp -- try 2 cups a day to see benefits.

Benefit: Getting the right amount of antioxidants through diet or supplements can make you 6 years younger.

Condoms protection against sun

Condoms Condoms must have heat or strong sunlight protection. Because of the heat, they are porous and therefore unusable, said the professional association of women doctors in Munich.

Similarly damaging is continuous pressure, such as for storage in purse or pocket created.

A condom should also not be used if its packaging is damaged or the expiration date has expired. It helps more then not in contraception or protection against STDs.

Cheeky Girls Talk Anorexia with Closer Magazine

Anorexia Cheeky GirlsThey say this duo’s biggest hit to date, the aptly called “The Cheeky Song,” is a classic example of brainwashing earworm. They also say that the Cheeky Girls, the Romanian twins who managed to break on the international European market with the above-mentioned single and who are now pursuing other aspects of their career, are also the worst act ever put together in the history of showbiz. Still, that doesn’t stop them from going on with their stuff and at least trying to help other young girls in terms of battling anorexia.

Speaking with Closer magazine, the twins, Monica and Gabriela Irimia, reveal that, although they now boast extremely fit and toned bodies, it wasn’t always so. Back when they were still getting tons and tons of negative media, for anything from their music to their fashion choices and their personal lives, and when they had reached a financial dead-end with their label collapsing and their not selling anything anymore, the girls succumbed to pressure and, to put it simply, stopped eating.

Their weight plummeted under 44 kg, while their waists contracted to just 22 inches. Moreover, being twins and always doing things together made it harder for Monica and Gabriela to come out of anorexia, they now say. “We negatively supported each other to stay ill. Gabriela came out of it, but it was hard for me to stop. You don’t want to go out because you might be tempted by food, so you just stay in and drink Diet Coke.” Monica tells Closer.

Even if they’re now in extraordinary shape, going to the gym everyday, taking dancing lessons and eating healthy, the girls say anorexia is not something that you can just cure and then forget about it. Having this disorder once means you’ll have it for the rest of your life, which, in turn, means you’ll have to live the rest of your life making sure you don’t fall victim to the same temptations again, the sisters add for the aforementioned magazine.

“Once anorexic, you’re always a bit anorexic. You always have to hide a sense of guilt. Even when you’re cured you still have it in your mind.” Monica explains. Her sister, Gabriela, seems to agree, although she does explain that circumstances in one’s life also play an important part in developing the dangerous eating disorder. “We didn’t have any control. We’d never even heard of anorexia and became sick without realizing it.” Gabriela adds.

Swine flu in Majorca: Without protection for the mouth Ballermann

Majorca swine fluThe first swine flu deaths in Mallorca, and many German returnees with flu symptoms upon the Balearic island of negative headlines. But organizers and authorities left to react - after all, much is at stake.

The first death, the number of infected people increases, and in Germany there is news about vacationers who are on the island of Majorca with the H1N1 virus have infected. In the middle of the season, such headlines highly inconvenient, especially as the tourism industry given the economic crisis is already going through difficult times.

The government in Palma pacifies "The Balearic Islands are a safe holiday destination. We are totally prepared to pig flu to the forehead", said spokeswoman Joana Barceló at the weekend. Even the chairman of the Majorcan and the Balearic Hotel Association, Antoni Horrach and Aurelio Vazquez, warned of serenity. Cancellations have so far not given.

"Ballermann infection"

The Robert Koch Institute in Berlin and various health authorities reported infected by Spain and Mallorca-returnees. The authorities in the Balearic Islands from wiegeln. "We are in the phase of a pandemic, the H1N1 virus now circulating worldwide," says the Health Ministry in Palma. The relevant federal public would be just as well somewhere in Germany have infected. From a "Ballermann infection" could not speak it. Measures such as controls at the airport was useless.

Furthermore, Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca with currently 26 confirmed cases of swine flu in the country-wide comparison - in Spain there are almost 1300 infected and four dead - is hardly affected. The Balearic Ministry of Health, there are 17 cases in Mallorca, Ibiza and eight to one on Menorca. The subjects were 18 to 40 years old. Their condition was good. Mallorca Spanish tourists were in contrast to non-German tourists increased by flu symptoms.

Precautions in holiday fliers

Also, the German tourism industry would have much to lose if the summer because of the pig business flu cases would burglarize. The airline Air Berlin, the day with several aircraft holidaymakers to the island and bring back zurückfliegt, the precautions since the first cases of swine flu in Mexico, and since then not changed. "We keep the provisions of the Health Ministry, the staff is adequately trained," said a spokeswoman for Air Berlin. If symptoms during a flight with a passenger up, the pilot informed the German authorities. Increased demands of worried vacationers or cancellations had not yet registered.

This is also the tenor of the two largest tour operators TUI and Thomas Cook. "We have since the weekend a few more requests at our call center," said a spokeswoman of the Tui. The need for information but was not as high as for the outbreak of the disease in Mexico. The pig is Tui flu as a global problem, travelers to Spain are not as vulnerable tourists in other countries.

The customers of the tour operator Thomas Cook has its own well-informed and read. Inquiries or requests cancellation, there is not, as a spokeswoman. Locally, the tourists through the guide to be kept. The Flight of the Condor staff was well trained, it should give an anomaly aboard.

Doctor: First cases only 'tip of the iceberg "

The Nigerian woman died in Majorca worked as prostitutes, according to police. At the doctor they had insured the card presented to another woman, said on Sunday in the press. Thus, the physician of a false medical history and had assumed they can not adequately treat. The 32-year-old succumbed to an acute pneumonia.

Doctors like Jaume Orfila from Son Dureta Hospital in Palma, the known cases in the Balearic Islands only "for the tip of the iceberg" because the virus rapidly spread. In the newspaper "Diario de Mallorca, it was pointed out that the pig flu should be no more dangerous than the ordinary seasonal flu.

Criticism of health authorities

After the death of the Nigerian woman last Thursday in Palma criticism is expressed. Friends and a cousin of the 32-year-olds, in Calviá worked as a prostitute should have accused the health authorities Balearic a lack of information. They had only learned from the newspaper that most H1N1 virus died. Similar accusations came from the staff of the hospital, although the young woman on several stations of the hospital has been treated, doctors and nurses had not been warned, special precautions must be taken to avoid contagion.

"The attempt, in pig flu something to hide or downplay, would be a gross mistake," warned the newspaper "Ultima Hora". This would only speculation, rumors and half-truths nurture. "It could be an explosive cocktail created, and stoking the unrest of our competitors in the tourism business would be."

How do we get infected with hepatitis B?

alnect komputerThe risk is through unprotected sexual intercourse, an HIV infection in it, is well known. What many do not know: the causative agent of hepatitis B can be transmitted this way. Estimated that this country plays in more than two-thirds of new infections to sexual transmission of a role.

The only natural reservoir for hepatitis B virus is man. An infection through contact with animals is practically impossible. The transfer of pathogens carried by blood or other body fluids.

Transmission through blood - even the smallest quantities sufficient

Hepatitis B virus in the blood reach a high concentration. For this reason even the smallest quantities of blood in order to transmit the pathogen. The prerequisite is that the infected blood on injuries of the skin or mucous membranes in the body. It does not have to be a major violation of act, already small area of skin or mucous membrane can crack the entrance gate for others with hepatitis B infected blood.

Former canned risk blood is now considered safe

Particularly at risk for infection are those with allogeneic or with objects, in which allogeneic there may come into contact. A common transmission route for hepatitis B was until the early 1980s, treatment with blood or blood products in the form of blood transfusions. Through the introduction of specific tests for viral components in blood donors, the risk of infection significantly reduced.

Today, the residual risk that an undetected infectious blood donation is performed, at 1:250.000 and 1:500.000 estimated. Products, which contain components of blood plasma, are due to new testing and inactivation as virtually 100 percent virus free.

Source of infection contaminated injection equipment

Another frequent source of infection in the transmission of hepatitis B are infectious agents with blood contaminated items. Even the smallest quantities of blood sufficient for infection. Therefore, as the common use of syringes and needles by drug addicts to an infection if the instruments after each use is not carefully cleaned.

It is suspected that poorly cleaned cutlery for tattoos, piercing or Ohrlochstechen and operating medical and dental procedures, where health conditions are not met, a potential source of risk for infection with hepatitis B show.

What risk of dialysis patients?

A particularly vulnerable group for hepatitis B infections are dialysis patients who are due to renal disease undergoing regular Blutwäschen need. Thanks to new dialysis techniques, the use of disposable materials for single-use cleaning and elaborate procedures of this machine is also used in this medical field, the infection risk significantly lessened.
Today the most common: the sexual transmission

Not only blood, other body fluids such as semen, vaginal secretions, tears, saliva and the so-called Colostrum, the first milk after birth, which can contain viruses.

Here is the concentration of pathogens, however, are generally lower than in the blood. However, a contagion of these body fluids is possible. Estimated that even 60 to 70 percent, so the largest proportion of all new infections with hepatitis B, now on a sexual transmission, although sexual intercourse without the use of condoms is probably the biggest role.

Moreover, a possible contagion, when a contact of infected body fluids with broken skin or mucous comes about, eg within the family, in institutions for children or disabled Wohngemeinschaften.

Transmission during birth and pregnancy

Also the transmission of hepatitis B infection in newborns through the mother immediately during birth is possible. If a pregnant woman infected with hepatitis B is an infection of the child very likely. An infection of the child but can almost always be prevented, if immediately after the birth of a preventive vaccination of the child takes place.

Salt is addictive!

salt crystalAt a congress of the American Heart Association at the University of California, the scientists demonstrate that cardiovascular diseases can be avoided, would the daily salt consumption by only a single gram reduced. Who salt consumption as much as three grams daily reduced, then the risk of heart disease and a resultant decrease significantly earlier death.

The salt consumption is too high

There is still too much salt is eaten. Especially in the industrialized countries, the consumption of salt is too high. As expected, the population of the United States in salts in the first place. Here are daily 9-12 grams consumed. Also in Germany the proportion of salt in the diet far too high. There are even different consumption levels by sex known: men take an average of 9 grams, women an average of 7 grams of salt per day to themselves.

Salt is widely available, is not expensive and is usually considered "basic spice" use. Why? U.S. scientists found a new, surprising reasons.

Salt is addictive!

U.S. researchers found in another test series with rats found that the salt effect of an addictive drug has. If the experiments the salt was removed, they changed their behavior from active to passive and positively depressed. "Salt true positive, depressed withdrawal mach. That is in summary form the results of the study conducted at the University of Iowa, and recognized in the journal Physiology & Behavior has been published

The researchers assume that the functional processes in the brain of animals during the withdrawal of salt in the human brain comparable to expire. More than that: The withdrawal of salt leads to the same brain responses as the withdrawal of drugs.

Attention - Ready Meals!

From a human behavioral addiction is when a drug - in spite of the knowledge of their risk - will be used. And that is exactly what happens in the use of salt.

That too much salt is harmful, hear and read a long time and frequently enough. Despite changes in the much too high salt consumption does not. Even if the freshly cooked meals less salt would have to be taken into account that absolutely each finished dish, each sausage, cheese, etc. everyone already has a high proportion of salt. Only he who renounces this food - or at least severely restrict - his salt intake may be even more determined.

The correct quantity in the right quality

Salt is just in too large quantities and in a poor quality (zBraffiniertes salt) unhealthy. A fundamental waiver is therefore not meaningful. However, the high proportion of salt already spiced food supermarket, and when cooking very little salt, and instead many fresh or dried herb seasoning.

Also on the quality of the salt should be strictly respected. Avoid consistently on the refined table salt - especially those who artificial iodine has been added - and use only natural stone, crystal or Ursalze. These salts are essential for your body and contribute to the health of your body.

Swine flu: Pensioners get vaccination later

alnect komputerIt looks almost as if when the plans for the vaccination against swine flu in Europe, the pensioners in each country, a disadvantage, because if you believe reports of different magazines, so be retired later than other population groups against the flu be vaccinated.

As is known, the manufacturer of the pharmaceutical industry with great zeal in the next vaccine against the virus of swine flu.

In particular, the multi-manufacturer, Novartis Pharma of Switzerland makes himself here and is regarded as one of the pioneers, but just in Switzerland are now published information which indicates that only retired once before other layers of the population to be vaccinated.

Most importantly, the vaccine after delivery initially not for all people in every country there are sufficient, which is located on the hand and by many reports and information is confirmed.

The fact that governments and health authorities of each country in the world now think about how to design a sensible plan for the vaccination against swine flu, and up through, especially when the vaccine is not sufficient for all residents, is clear and reasonable.

Presumably, even the thoughts of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) rational, that pensioners, a group which is allegedly not as fast with the virus of swine influenza infection, later than others to be vaccinated. Perhaps only when the vaccine will be replaced ..

First, presumably, just as the World Health Organization (WHO) calls for people of the medical staff and the public service (police, etc.) in each country will receive a vaccination. Under the scheme, which, as it views the magazine titled, infantry vaccinated.

It should be straight, as mentioned earlier, retired under the ordinary citizens is primarily the worst cards, because that group is far less rapidly with the virus as an example to young people and children.

Perhaps these considerations are really reasonable and the choices you have to understand, because if retirees are actually slower than infected children, it may well give no other considerations.
In addition to discussions about the so-called vaccination in the different countries of Europe are also voices which say that vaccination is not already started in August, but only in the autumn of this year can begin.

One can only hope that the worst horror scenarios of the various health authorities of this world do not occur and that the flu virus of swine flu itself is not mutated or evolved, as some experts predicted.

A miracle chocolate from Switzerland?

alnect komputerIt sounds incredible: the Swiss manufacturer Barry Callebaut has developed a chocolate, the heat-resistant and low in calories yet to be.

The internal "Vulcano" called product melts, according to "mirror" only from 55 degrees Celsius and has only about a tenth of the calories of conventional chocolate. This would be a dream of many sweet tooth but also the manufacturer will be fulfilled.

But critics munkeln now that the taste is on the route could remain. The company Barry Callebaut, which mainly supplies Nestle and Cadbury, will "Vulcano", however, a brittle character.

Obviously, the Swiss also know another problem: Although the body temperature around 37 degrees Celsius is, the candy, according to the Austrian online magazine "" still melt on the tongue. Instead of body heat is so taken by Barry Callebaut, the saliva in the mouth of the chocolate-lovers assume.

With "Vulcano" plans in the world market leader in Switzerland, according to "", the new markets in China and India to conquer. There is obviously an advantage if the cocoa dainty not already at 30 degrees Celsius liquefied.

"The idea sounds fascinating," says Daniel Bürki, financial analyst at Zürcher Kantonalbank the "mirror". But nor is Bürki skeptical: "Past experience has shown that heat-resistant chocolate taste with conventional products could keep up."

On attempt to create heat-resistant chocolate, many companies have already failed. For example, received U.S. producer Hershey "mirror" in the Second World War, according to mandate, as nutrient and temperature resistant panels produce. Since the production up to this point had been geared, liquid chocolate into molds to pour Hershey got tough with the newly developed mass apparently his problems. Finally, the Hershey employees the material with the need to manually edit.

Thus came the "Mirror" that rock hard, rectangular bars agreement, their taste and consistency of the U.S. firm over time, continuously improved. Thus, Hershey but no commercial success landing.

No wonder then, that a financial analyst Bürki has his doubts: the market and hence the critical test for chocolate lovers is "Vulcano" before.

New method for treating infarcts using Ultrasound

ultrasound stem cellPhysicians have presented a new method for stem cells into damaged hearts to conduct. Their results indicate medium to better treatment of infarcts hope, the researchers report in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology ".

A heart attack is not only acutely dangerous. Even if the original seal treated successfully could be life-threatening late complications. These include, for example, serious arrhythmias. Also, often days or weeks after the myocardial infarction scar tissue to be rebuilt. As a result of an irreversible threat Pumpschwäche.

Therapy with stem cells
With conventional medicines these complications can be only partially addressed. Promising, however, is the opinion of the researchers with stem cell therapy. This option is still in its infancy. So it is extremely difficult, the stem cells to infarct scar conducting.

"If we, for example, 100,000 bone marrow stem cells into the bloodstream inject find themselves an hour later only 3,000 in the heart again," explains Dr. Alexander Ghanem of the University Hospital of Bonn. "The remaining 97 percent of land to a large extent in the liver and spleen."

Stem cells are the heart "lured"
The staff of the Medical Clinic II, will together with colleagues from Munster and Cologne change. In addition, the researchers tested a method by which continuous bone marrow stem cells into the heart "lure" can.

"We have in the bloodstream of rats microscopically small gas bubbles injected," said Ghanem. Once you have these bubbles of a suitable ultrasonic pulse suspends, it is the sound box to vibrate. It irritated the surrounding tissue, so that inflammatory mediators ausschüttet. These messengers lure including on stem cells.

Researchers complained all the peripheral zone of the infarct scar
"By selectively the vital edge Zone of the infarct scar complained all the stem cells can be specifically conduct there," says Professor Dr. Klaus Tiemann of the University of Munster. "So at least in theory."

The practice gave the scientists right now: The number of stem cells, which after an hour in the heart again, settled by the sound of nearly 40 percent increase. There they left the blood vessels and migrate into the injured tissue. It is the first time that such a process could be demonstrated.

Good news for heart attack patients
For heart attack patients are the good news. Firstly, the cells that help to improve the pumping. Even more important are probably the so-called paracrine effects of stem cells. Thus, they can already in very small numbers the risk of dangerous cardiac arrhythmias significantly reduced - at least in animal studies.

"Stem cells also seem to prevent the infarct scar more and more magnified," says Ghanem. "The continuing weakness of the heart muscle can be possibly slowing or even stopping."

Still smell like everyone else?

perfumeThe era of Prada, Dior or Armani fragrances verweht. Eccentric, novel or imaginative creations mini runs of small independent perfume labels are the big trend in business with the fragrance. The extraordinary fragrances find more and more fans, despite the crisis and twirl the entire industry.

Fashion and trade fairs - especially in the Berlin Fashion Week has come to an end, before the men's fashion week in Milan, will soon be in Paris haute couture shows. So it continues, with fashion through the year. Always somewhere is fair. Even in Dusseldorf. But the perfume fair there has as yet not heard. Anyway: While owe the big fashion brands, a significant part of their sales transactions with the license smells, but perfumes reporting falls compared with those on the collections from puny. The fact that a newspaper like the New York Times perfume critic even a busy, seems so bizarre to.

He says Chandler Burr. The industry says the new verdict on Burr'sche fragrances was feared. Recently he came to Dusseldorf. Likewise, Karen Dubin, Founder of "Sniffapalooza", the world's largest perfume community with 500,000 members. The occasion was the first German exhibition scent. Around 50 companies exclusive crowd in the exhibition room, rose and jasmine notes combine with musk and vanilla flavors, cinnamon, mint, bergamot, cedar buzz about, moss and Sandelholzakkorden. The air is thin. And no haze of Guerlain, Gucci, Prada, Dior, Armani. Here are the names of the Stars: Mona di Orio, Humiecki & Graef, Profumi di Firenze, Les Parfums Suspendus, Andreas Liberec, Canali, Emeshel, Esteban, Hierbas or de Ibiza Histoires de Parfums. All of 'niche brands "and being part of the most successful trends in the Morning Post Online fragrancy. Complaints major international fragrance houses on sales difficulties, so there is a growing "niche": 34 percent of industry sales going to their account. 2000, there were still three percent.

Creations with limited edition
What we called niche scents (yes, the child had a commercial-industrial property name), is in the U.S. euphonious with "indie-Scents" means. These are creations with limited edition (usually limited), only very selectively distributed. Made of small, private, independent firms.

So far still not exciting. What fragrance freaks however bliss can sneeze, the noses and their creative visions. They are in niche perfumes in the foreground, next to the pure "juice" of course. Designers and Parfümeure like James Heeley, Mona di Orio Michel Roudnitska or see their work as an homage to the traditional art and craft of Parfümeurs to each its own unique scent character, coupled with a unique modern twist. Here they can be guided by nothing other than personal preferences, emotions and memories. And they use rare and precious natural resources in high concentrations. "The average price for a kilo of base used is now $ 20. We use oils that cost ten times. Even 3000 per kilo come before, "says Geoffrey Newman, creative mind behind Parfums M. Micallef.

And the smell is - at best, even overwhelming. For example, when Christophe Laudamiel, a great "nose", feeling as melancholy moments ( "Skarb"), anger ( "Askew") or foolish devotion ( "Multiple Rouge") for the cubist bottles of Humiecki & Graef composed.

Niche fragrances tick differently
The secret to their success: Niche fragrances are absolutely ruthless. They are created without a thought to what the employee Parfümeur a major fragrance company now mainly in mind when he for example, a new fragrance concept for a fashion label is to implement: Is it the global mass taste of Buenos Aires to Seoul, are high volume of the same quality for years to achieve, does it all at the lowest possible cost? Niche fragrances tick differently.

"A smell, the world in huge run for years at a reasonable price must be available to, can not with the most expensive jasmine or rose oil produced. However, because the quantity does not exist and the quality varies. The risk for large companies is too great, "says Thorsten Biehl, in Berlin" Biehl. Perfume artworks "operates. A gallery for niche perfumes, the perfume of your opportunity, without regard to limits in expressing their creations. These include, for example, Geza Schön, who with his "Molecule 01" already fragrance junkies from all over the world has become addicted. Schön plays favorite with only a single material with Iso E Super, a substance that is as similar to the Sexuallockstoffen traded.

For trend experts, the success of the niche as no surprise: "For decades fragrances reflect social aspirations. They stand for the things that are desirable and their carrier status recognition. Today it is the desire for individuality, the celebration of the personality with all its facets, which characterizes our society, "says trend expert Susanne Köhler from Zukunftsinstitut in Kelkheim. So now travel lovers from all over Germany regularly in private to perfumeries, like Albrecht in Frankfurt or Hamburg Lubner, browse in search of secret Internet portals such as "For Love of the scent."

The price always plays less a role. "More and more customers are ready for a unique fragrance experience a lot of money," confirms David Albrecht, Associate Chief of perfumery Albrecht in Frankfurt. To sell, for example, the perfume of eau de Cognac heir Kilian Hennessy especially in the "Fountain", a shiny black one-liter kegs, as self-liter Price: 2000 Euro.

Good smells come from anywhere

Fragrances are a niche per se, but not always better than the big houses. "Even from the most expensive ingredients, expensive crap you can make," commented expert Chandler Burr in Dusseldorf the current hype. "Good smells come from anywhere. Again, there are companies that are easy to jump up and Trendzug on the ticket of the exceptional ride. And there are large firms that smells artificial shortage to the appearance of niche to awaken. "

So continues: Nose to receive and curiosity ran to each of the approximately 500 new bottles, per year. You should note, however, sometimes the March 2010. Since fragrance is the next trade fair in Düsseldorf. Even now, one thing is clear: it is very, very much bigger.

The Intimate Shaving is now available for men

man pubic hairMaintain your beards men quite blithely, even with pride. Shaving remote areas of the body, however reluctantly discussed. But now, the industry trend toward intimate shave the man up. Now it provides a device for the most sensitive region of the body - because where hair is shaved also.

Today we speak about virtually everything. And not just in party mood. And: Did you have fun with provocations and moving - everything must satire - like too far away from decency and tact? Then do you casually and just blithely following customers: "I have just yesterday Intim shave performed. Very useful, das "

"Oops!", The group of those who have such things like the cloak of silence, in parry. But at least you reap a reliable laugh, if you sort the cat out of the bag can be.

But times seriously. Suddenly namely: serious interest. "You rasierst you?" Then, after a pause: "Untenrum?" Above all, it seems the how of general interest: If you "see" the girlfriend of the leg shaver? Or even one's own Nassrasierer, for the face? Preparatory work with the scissors? Already, a veritable, mainly a full-length shoptalk of broken fence. You are now at the center of the party. It depends on your lips: "With or without the foam?"

Even Bayerns Striker Luca Toni understood it, this trick with the attention: He does not shave the chest, he was in a "gala" interview to be recorded. A kind of Outing, because now is the shaving and plucking of breast and body hair in men for good sound. With its commitment to the Wild Striker Toni growth appears not only anachronistic but even wrinkled.

For some time now the trend has to shave on the findings from hydro-and aerodynamics in sport. Swimmers need to shave, na klar, then flow through the dam chen they like fish. Professional cyclists discard also consistently annoying leg hair, but masses of bare-chested was particularly merciless in the beauty of Light gyms. For bodybuilders, the hair should not be an Adonis-like appearance disturb.

From the chest hair until Schameshügel are really only a few centimeters. Meanwhile, industry has taken up the trend and also delivers to male customers device: The BodycruZer von Braun, for "KeinOhrHasen 'Til Schweiger advertising, is the current leader of this fledgling branch of the personal hygiene industry. The shaving device to be approaching it with due respect - after all, the ultra-sharp blades reinforced apparatus for use in ultraempfindlichen points. It outweigh skepticism, and - you hear so much! - Fear of bloody scenarios that night in the emergency room at the embarrassing interrogations. Unfounded, incidentally. Who the BodycruZer turns on, hear a hum, the sovereign, with its precision and uniformity as well as promises of work value.

Naked in front of the mirror we decide for the essay "Sensitive". That sounds cautious, brings confidence and it will - but who reads the already - from the Instruction Manual for the most sensitive areas is recommended. And for particularly sensitive stops in doubt until all times who is using this machine erogenous zones near the body. Smooth initial contact on the tibia. Is that even possible? Surrender raspelt apparatus of a few hairs away. Na bitte. We summarize confidence. Intimate! As should now finally upscale aesthetic standards prevail. Boldly applied, and a pile of hair falls to the ground. Aha. But it's not faster? Ah, so we set the machine wrong, too much like a razor. In the jungle you have to work diagonally - memories of television reports from the mohair shearing in Australia. Gently with the hair trimmers cut, in some regions does the built Nassrasierer. Who mere removal or socket not enough, the attack on the hair mask. The company has Bikinelle like this even a separate unisex line up, because men also increasingly accessed. My favorite hairstyle: the simple stripes.

In the year 2000 Robbie Williams for discussions. In the video for "Rock DJ" was clear to see: the man shaves. "Nothing new under the sun!", We think these questions philosophers. Concealed not even the famous "Venus" by Botticelli, at least from the year 1485, with her pubic hair flowing?

Maintenance "below the belt line" is no longer offensive

The mid-90s was Frank Schaefer of Berlin as "Intim Friseur known. His boss had Marketinggag as the Intimate Hair praised. Against expectations came customers. If we look past most shrill, remembers Schäfer, one would now prefer to halt proliferation of natural form, in the best sense: cultivate. That and how the women deal with "Brazilian Waxing" discard their hair growth, manufactured pop-cultural, the U.S. series "Sex and the City".

It is a very important finding and a final step of the Enlightenment, that the care "below the belt line" is not exactly what same expression suggests: offensive.
But beware: "About every five or ten years, a shift in fashion in one direction or the other place," says Dr. Kevin Powell, laboratory manager at Gillette. In the 70s we have chest hair worn like today is just glattrasiert in. Sure, the opposite trend is also in shave just a matter of time.

But, and this we do not want to hide: How often is shaved, it grows a bit faster - at least it feels like that.

Just Sleep to Solve Your Problem

Sleeping on a problem really can help solve it, say scientists who found a dreamy nap boosts creative powers.

They tested whether "incubating" a problem allowed a flash of insight, and found it did, especially when people entered a phase of sleep known as REM.

Volunteers who had entered REM or rapid eye movement sleep - when most dreams occur - were then better able to solve a new problem with lateral thinking.

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has published the US work.

In the morning of the test day, 77 volunteers were given a series of creative problems to solve and were told to mull over the problem until the afternoon either by resting but staying awake or by taking a nap monitored by the scientists.

Compared with quiet rest and non-REM sleep, REM sleep increased the chances of success on the problem-solving task.

The study at the University of California San Diego showed that the volunteers who entered REM during sleep improved their creative problem solving ability by almost 40%.

The findings suggest it is not merely sleep itself, or the passage of time, that is important for the problem solving, but the quality of sleep.

Lead researcher Professor Sara Mednick said: "We found that, for creative problems you've already been working on, the passage of time is enough to find solutions.

"However for new problems, only REM sleep enhances creativity."

The researchers believe REM sleep allows the brain to form new nerve connections without the interference of other thought pathways that occur when we are awake or in non-dream-state sleep.

"We propose that REM sleep is important for assimilating new information into past experience to create a richer network of associations for future use," they told PNAS.

Dr Malcolm von Schantz of the Surrey Sleep Research Centre at the University of Surrey said: "Whatever the importance of the dreams themselves are, this paper confirms the importance of REM sleep, the sleep stage when most of our dreaming takes place."

3 Lifestyle Habits That Can Boost Your Sex Drive

Boost Your Sex DriveAll the usual healthy habits are good for your sex drive—even if your low libido is caused by a condition such as diabetes or hypertension. Remember, sexual health and general good health are profoundly interconnected.

1. Get plenty of exercise
If you want to be "hot-blooded," then improve your circulation. Physical fitness can increase blood flow, which in theory can make sex more pleasurable since sexual arousal for both men and women involves increased blood flow to the genital area. And that can increase desire itself—if it feels great, you tend to want to do it more.

Exercise boosts endorphins, which lift your mood, and it can increase your energy. Not to mention that being toned makes some people feel sexier.

2. Eat a healthy diet
Arteries clogged with saturated fat don't bring as much blood to the genital area for arousal purposes. Hence the correlation between heart disease and erectile dysfunction.

But excess weight also messes with your hormones. "Obesity can shift the balance between estrogen and testosterone," says Michael Krychman, MD, executive director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine in Newport Beach, Calif. And low testosterone can bring down your sex drive.

Nutrition counts too. For example, an iron deficiency can lead to fatigue, which in turn can lead to low libido. (Eat your broccoli!)

3. Manage your stress
"How about a simple vacation? How about communicating with your partner?" suggests Irwin Goldstein, MD, director of San Diego Sexual Medicine and editor in chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine. "People are overworked and stressed, and they translate their overworked, stressed lives to a lousy sex life."

Control Pain with Mind

control painScience is beginning to investigate and support the role of therapies such as biofeedback and meditation in pain control. The idea that the mind has power over the body may be especially useful to chronic pain patients who often find themselves without satisfactory medical treatments.

The emotional response to pain
Pain travels along two pathways from a source, such as an injury, back to your brain. One is the sensory pathway, which transmits the physical sensation. The other is the emotional pathway, which goes from the injury to the amygdala and the anterior cingulate cortex—areas of the brain that process emotion.

"You may not be aware of it, but you're having a negative emotional reaction to chronic pain as well as a physical reaction," says Natalia Morone, MD, assistant professor of general internal medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Mind-body treatments that involve meditation and relaxation probably affect these emotional pathways. However, Dr. Morone admits that many doctors don't put much stock in this theory. "Anything to do with mind-body medicine around pain is going to be controversial. This is all very new."

Research is beginning to show the connection
In a 2005 study, researchers at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), which measures activity in different areas of the brain, to see whether subjects could learn to control a brain region involved in pain and whether that could be a tool for altering their pain perception.

Laura Tibbitts, 34, an event planner from San Francisco who severely injured her arm, shoulder and back when she was thrown off of a horse, participated in the study. In describing her pain, she says: "My muscles and nerves feel like a bunch of snakes that are all intertwined, but then I also get a stabbing and shooting pain. So you have that horrible, achy, uncomfortableness, but then you get these jolts of pain."

In the study, Tibbitts was asked to increase her pain and as she did, an image of a flame on a computer monitor became stronger and more vibrant. Then she was told to decrease her pain, which caused the flame to die-down. "Sometimes I would imagine that the pain was literally being scooped out from me, taken away and carried off. Other times I used water imagery, like it was flowing through me and taking it away," says Tibbitts. After the test, she learned that she had been able to produce a 30% to 40% reduction in her overall pain.

Giving control to pain patients
For Sean Mackey, MD, director of the pain management division at Stanford University School of Medicine and one of the study's researchers, the research revealed a striking element of empowerment. "Patients would say, 'A-ha! For the first time I could see the pain in my brain, and I could control it. And that was a very powerful experience," he says.

Dr. Mackey believes pain medicine is moving away from the concept of strict mind-body separation toward a more unified—and ancient-sounding—view in which "mind and body are really one."

The bottom line for pain patients is that they may want to pursue pain-control techniques such as biofeedback, yoga, and meditation. But they also need to be on the alert for scams and beware of claims made by therapists seeking to exploit their desperation. Before turning to one of these therapies, it's best to thoroughly research the practitioner you choose.
