Johns Hopkins researchers looked at yoga and the health benefits for people suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee or rheumatoid arthritis. The results were so good, that they were recently published in the Journal of Rheumatology. Turns out that 8 weeks of yoga classes improved the physical and mental wellbeing of their subjects. This study was the largest one so far focused on Yoga and the health benefits for arthritis. To learn more go to http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/09/150915141149.htm

Fight Depression With A Better Diet

Posted on: Wed, Dec 02, 2015, at 12:00 pm

In a study published in the open access journal BMC Medicine, looked at over 15,000 people and found that eating a diet high in fruits, veggies, nuts, and legumes, such as the Mediterranean can prevent the onset of depression. Basically, the study results show that depression is most likely linked to nutrient deficits, something that we have seen in our practice as well.

Posted on: Wed, Nov 25, 2015, at 12:00 pm

A new study from the Journal of Family Psychology shows that men who do their fair share of housework have better sex lives. Interestingly enough, the study didn't define fair share. That was defined by the couples. So our advice is to take up your significant other on an of those 'Honey Doos' around the house. It's a win-win.

How Much Television Are You Watching?

Posted on: Wed, Nov 11, 2015, at 12:00 pm

How much television are you watching? If you are like 80% of Americans, you are watching 3.5 hours a day – which is far too much. A new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine shows a link between television watching times and the 6 leading causes of death. Heart disease, diabetes, influenza/pneumonia, Parkinson's disease, liver disease, and cancer risks are all increased with the number of hours dedicated to time in-front of the tube. The study looked at over 200K people and found that 3-4 hours of television watching per day was linked to a 15% more likely to die, and at 7 or more hours, that risk increased to 47%. My advice to you – plan your television time, don’t surf. Get in and see what you want to see, and get out. To learn more go to http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/10/151027154939.htm

Some New Developments Regarding PPI

Posted on: Wed, Nov 04, 2015, at 12:00 pm

If you are taking a PPI – Proton Pump Inhibitor, the medications used to treat ulcers and acid reflux, you need to hear this. Two new studies have emerged that show PPI class drugs can actually cause damage to the kidneys. These drugs were never intended to be used on a long term basis, but many people have been on them for years, causing irreversible damage to their kidneys. A study out of Johns Hopkins University followed over 10K adults with normal kidney function from 1996 to 2011. They found that PPI users were between 20% and 50% more likely to develop CKD than non-PPI users, even after accounting for baseline differences. This discovery was replicated in a second study with over 240,000 patients who were followed from 1997 to 2014. This is significant!
