Your stools reveal whether you can lose weight

Your stools reveal whether you can lose weight

Faculty of Science – University of Copenhagen

Something as simple as a feces sample reveals whether you can lose weight by following dietary recommendations characterized by a high content of fruit, vegetables, fibers and whole grains. This is a finding of a new study conducted at the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The bacteria we all have in our gut may play a decisive role in personalized nutrition and the development of obesity. This is shown by several studies that have delved into the significance of these bacteria.

The Boot Bomb, Where We Take Outdoor Footwear Very Seriously!

The Boot Bomb, Where We Take Outdoor Footwear Very Seriously!
12 May

BY: Brian Bradshaw CEO of Boot Bomb

Do you think all footwear is created alike? Think again! Hiking boots are a completely different beast than your average walking shoes.

I have learned the importance of good footwear many years ago, when I gave myself plantar fasciitis by walking around on worn down budget boots for too long. I’ve gone through weeks of pure agony with every second I was standing up straight (which was most of the day). But I was quick to learn my lesson. I have since owned many different kinds of boots, such as KEEN, Ahnu, Merrell, Columbia and New Balance.

Bad Discs and Sciatica: How To Fix Them Yourself

Bad Discs and Sciatica: How To Fix Them Yourself
11 May

By Dr. Jolie Bookspan| Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation

Dr Bookspan is a military researcher. Harvard School of Medicine clinicians have named her “The St. Jude of the Joints.” A degenerating disc, or one that is slipped (herniated) can be painful and frightening. Despite the fact that discs usually can heal quickly and easily, people are commonly told that a disc problem is a difficult and long-term condition.They are told to accept and “live with” pain and reduced ability. They may stay on pain and anti-inflammatory drugs for long periods. Recent news reports from Time Magazine and The New York Times quote spine specialists as saying that back pain is mysterious, and that commonly used modalities like acupuncture, strengthening, surgery, massage, chiropractic just aren’t working. However, the case is that back pain is usually simple to understand, and simple to fix without surgery or special beds or equipment.

Alcoholism’s “Leaky Gut” Syndrome

Alcoholism’s “Leaky Gut” Syndrome
11 May

William Silkworth, wrote in the preface of The “Big Book” the following: “The action of alcohol on chronic alcoholics is a manifestation of an allergy: that the phenomenon of craving is limited to this class and never occurs in the average temperate drinker.” Alcoholics often eat poorly, limiting their supply if essential nutrients and affecting both energy supply and structure maintenance. Furthermore, alcohol interferes with the nutritional process by affecting digestion, storage, utilization, and excretion of nutrients.

Whole-body vibration may be as effective as regular exercise

A less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration (WBV) can mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of regular exercise in mice, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s journal Endocrinology.

WBV consists of a person sitting, standing or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform. When the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body, and muscles contract and relax multiple times during each second.

Many people find it challenging to exercise regularly and that is contributing to the obesity and diabetes epidemics. These disorders can increase the risk of bone fractures. Physical activity can help to decrease this risk and reduce the negative metabolic effects of each condition.

The Signs and Symptoms of Gout

The Signs and Symptoms of Gout
28 Mar

By Mayo Clinic Staff

The signs and symptoms of gout almost always occur suddenly — often at night — and without warning. They include:

Intense joint pain. Gout usually affects the large joint of your big toe, but it can occur in your feet, ankles, knees, hands and wrists. The pain is likely to be most severe within the first four to 12 hours after it begins.
Lingering discomfort. After the most severe pain subsides, some joint discomfort may last from a few days to a few weeks. Later attacks are likely to last longer and affect more joints.
Inflammation and redness. The affected joint or joints become swollen, tender, warm and red.
Limited range of motion. Decreased joint mobility may occur as gout progresses.

BREATHING DRILLS: MAXIMIZE FORCE AND OXYGEN

BREATHING DRILLS: MAXIMIZE FORCE AND OXYGEN

Man can survive weeks without solid food, days without water, but only mere minutes without air. Ancient traditions knew the importance of breathing. Breathing technique drills were a necessary component for guarding both one’s health as well as developing on mental and spiritual levels. Breathing drills are also essential for success as a StrongFirst practitioner, and here is why.

Breathing Drills Increase Force Production

In the years during which I lived in Japan, Masutatsu Oyama – the founder of Kyokushin karate – used to begin and end his lessons with a special breathing exercise. The instruction was to start with the inhalation breath at tanden (three fingers beneath the navel) – the area that is considered the center of force in the world of martial arts. The ratio between inhalation and exhalation was 1:2 (in other words, if the inhalation lasted four seconds, the exhalation lasted eight seconds).

Columbia University Medical CenterSummary:Drug-eluting stents, a less-invasive alternative to bypass surgery, are as effective as surgery for many patients with a blockage in the left main coronary artery, a major international study has found. A major international study has found that drug-eluting stents, a less-invasive alternative to bypass surgery, are as effective as surgery for many patients with a blockage in the left main coronary artery. Findings from the EXCEL (Evaluation of XIENCE versus Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery for Effectiveness of Left Main Revascularization) trial were published this morning online in the New England Journal of Medicine and presented at the annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics conference in Washington, DC. The trial research team included interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons from 126 centers in 17 countries.
