Top Ten Tips for a Healthy, Glowing Skin

Many of us are skin conscious. We often want our skin to look young and healthy and we really do something just to protect our skin from whatever possible harms there may be in our environment. Well, our skin is our largest organ performing several functions.

Examination and Diagnosis

You can prevent much suffering and serious sickness when you notice and treat problems early. Whenever you hold a health clinic, try to find out how healthy each person’s mouth is. Ask if she is having a problem now, or has had a problem recently Always write down what you find out, so you remember what treatment that person needs.

Low-Fat, Low-Salt, Whole-Food Vegan

Since my days as a medical student, I have been keenly interested in nutritional impacts on health. In particular, I have been studying for years in an effort to determine why many Third World societies, as long as they maintain their traditional diets and lifestyles, are relatively immune to so many of the disorders that take a devastating toll on the health and finances of elderly Americans.

Low-Energy-Dense Foods and Weight Management

Yes, calorie intake can be reduced while controlling hunger. This research brief investigates the impact of eating lowenergy-dense foods on calories consumed, satiety, and body weight.

Dietary Fiber

The term “dietary fiber” is familiar to most Americans. Many people, however, do not fully understand the nature of dietary fiber and its role in a healthful diet. In this report the American Council on Science and Health reviews current scientific knowledge about the role dietary fiber plays in the prevention and treatment of human diseases and explains the potential benefits and risks of increased fiber intake.

Dietary, Functional, and Total Fiber

Dietary Fiber consists of nondigestible carbohydrates and lignin that are intrinsic and intact in plants. Functional Fiber consists of isolated, nondigestible carbohydrates that have beneficial physiological effects in humans. Total Fiber is the sum of Dietary Fiber and Functional Fiber. Fibers have different properties that result in different physiological effects. For example, viscous fibers may delay the gastric emptying of ingested foods into the small intestine, resulting in a sensation of fullness, which may contribute to weight control. Delayed gastric emptying may also reduce postprandial blood glucose concentrations and potentially have a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity. Viscous fibers can interfere with the absorption of dietary fat and cholesterol, as well as with the enterohepatic recirculation of cholesterol and bile acids, which may result in reduced blood cholesterol concentrations.

Emergency Management of Acute Apical Periodontitis in the Permanent Dentition

Acute apical periodontitis (AAP) is an inflammatory condition of the periapical tissues of the periodontium, usually resulting from irreversible pulpitis and pulpal necrosis. Although chemical and physical factors can cause pulpitis, most cases have a microbial cause, usually secondary to caries or trauma.1 Although the presence of some bacteria in the periapical region of an affected tooth has been demonstrated,2 AAP is predominantly an inflammatory, rather than an infectious, process.

Sleep and Sleep Disorders

Although the precise purpose of sleep remains obscure, there is no question that adequate sleep is essential to normal function. Sleep disorders are among the most common human maladies, they commonly compromise daytime activity, and in some cases they may be completely disabling. By and large, they are treatable. Nevertheless, patients seldom volunteer that they are having trouble sleeping, and health care personal seldom ask.

Somatic Symptom Disorders

This group of disorders is characterized predominantly by somatic symptoms or concerns that are associated with significant distress and/or dysfunction. Somatic symptoms are common in every day life and medical practice. Such symptoms may be initiated, exacerbated or maintained by combinations of biological, psychological and social factors. The diagnostic criteria are applicable across the lifespan, even though developmental differences in the presentation and phenomenology of somatic symptom disorders may exist.

Autologous Serum In Eye Disorders

Tear film is very important in the maintenance of an intact ocular surface and thus pathologies of the conjunctival and corneal epithelium are intimately related to tear film dysfunction. When tears are depleted various changes like squamous metaplasia, epithelial defects and infections of corneal epithelium can occur. It is with this objective in mind that ophthalmologists in the world over started searching for substances which could act as replacement for tears.
