Migraine patient handout

Migraine – More than a Headache Introduction Migraine is a common clinical problem characterized by episodic attacks of head pain and associated symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to light, sound, or head movement. It is general y thought of as a headache problem, but it has become apparent in recent years that many patients suffer symptoms from migraine who do not have severe headaches as a dominant symptom. These patients may have a primary complaint of dizziness, of ear pain, of ear or head ful ness, "sinus" pressure, and even fluctuating hearing loss. Fortunately, treatment regimens long established for the treatment of "classic" migraine headaches are general y effective against these "atypical" symptoms of migraine. How Common is Migraine?

Topical steroids for children with asthma Topical steroids for children with asthma Professor, overlæge, dr. med. Dansk BørneAstma Center Gentofte Børneafdeling Steroids are the most effective preventive medication for the treatment of asthma in children. The inhalation of steroids helps asthmatic children to lead normal lives and has no relevant side effects in recommended dose. Therefore, pediatricians recommend that children with regular symptoms of asthma should be treated with inhaled steroids.

EMBARGOED: NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR CITATION UNTIL 9.30 AM KENYA TIME, JULY 12, 2013 Education and Health Services in Data for Results and Accountability Launch edition Service Delivery Indicators: Data for Results and AccountabilityThe Service Delivery Indicators provide a set of metrics for benchmarking service delivery performance in education and health in Africa. The overall objective of the indicators is to gauge the quality of service delivery in primary education and basic health services. The indicators enable governments and citizens to identify gaps and track progress within and across countries over time. It is envisaged that the broad availability, high public awareness and persistent focus on the indicators will mobilize policymakers, citizens, service providers, donors and other stakeholders into action. The ultimate goal is to sharply increase accountability for improved quality of services toward the ultimate end of improving human development outcomes, along the lines originally proposed by World Development Report 2004: Making Services Work for Poor People.

Original Research Oseltamivir resistance among infl uenza viruses: surveillance in northern Viet Nam, 2009–2012Hoang Vu Mai-Phuong,a Nguyen Co Thach,a Nguyen Le Khanh Hang,a Nguyen Thi Kim Phuongb and Le Quynh MaiaCorrespondence to Hoang Vu Mai-Phuong (e-mail: [email protected] or [email protected]). Introduction: Antiviral resistance has been reported in seasonal influenza A viruses and avian influenza A(H5N1) viruses in Viet Nam, raising concerns about the efficacy of treatment.Methods: We analysed specimens from two sources during the period 2009–2012: influenza-positive samples from influenza-like illness patients at sentinel clinics in northern Viet Nam and isolates from patients with confirmed A(H5N1) infections. Pyrosequencing was used to detect mutations: H275Y [for A(H1N1) and A(H5N1)], E119V [for A(H3N2)] and I117V [for A(H5N1)]. A neuraminidase inhibition assay was used to determine the Inhibitory Concentration 50 (IC )


PD Dr med WP Bieger NeuroStress Guide EINLEITUNG Der vorliegende NeuroScience-Guide ist als Anleitung für Patienten, Ärzte und Therapeuten gedacht. Er soll einen Einblick in die Funktionsweise des Neuroendokriniums und in die Grundlagen neuroendokriner Funktionsstörungen und deren Behandlung vermitteln. Die von uns entwickelte „NeuroStress"-Diagnostik wird vorgestellt und physiologische Behandlungsformen besprochen. Schon lange gibt es hochwirksame Substanzen für die natürliche Behandlung psychoneurovegetativer Störungen, die allerdings durch die Entwicklung der modernen Psychopharmaka verdrängt wurden. Die unbefriedigenden Ergebnisse der Antidepressiva haben die traditionellen Behandlungskonzepte jedoch wieder ins Bewusstsein gerückt. Unser aktuelles ganzheitliches diagnostisch-therapeutisches Konzept greift die bewährten Verfahren auf und verbindet sie mit innovativen Diagnose- und Behandlungsformen aus den USA. Eingangsüberlegungen: 1. Die Zahl neurovegetativer Störungen und psychischer Krankheiten nimmt weltweit stark zu. Damit auch die Nachfrage nach neuen diagnostischen Möglichkeiten und effzienten, gut verträglichen Behandlungen. Seit Jahren steigt die Zahl psychischer Störungen in den westlichen Industrieländern. Man geht davon aus, dass bis zu 60% der Krankheitsfälle in der täglichen ärztlichen Praxis psychischer Natur sind bzw. eng mit psychischen Belastungen verbunden sind. Schon heute entfallen viele Krankheitstage auf psychische Störungen, ihre Zahl nimmt ständig zu, während die Gesamtzahl krankheitsbedingter Fehltage seit Jahren zurückgeht. Besonders gravierend ist die Zunahme der Depressionen. Während Herz-Kreislauferkrankungen, Herzinfarkt, sogar die häufigsten Krebserkrankungen (Lungen-, Brust- und Prostatakrebs) seit einigen Jahren abnehmende Tendenz zeigen, nimmt der Anteil von Depressionen ständig zu. Die WHO geht in einem ihrer jüngsten Gesundheitsberichte (2006) davon aus, dass bereits in den nächsten 5-10 Jahren Depressionen die zweithäufigste medizinische Krankheitsursache überhaupt sein werden. 2. Psychopharmaka werden heute in enormem Maße eingesetzt, sie sind mit >65 Mrd € die umsatzstärkste pharmazeutische Präparategruppe. Ihre Wirksamkeit, vor allem die der Antidepressiva, ist jedoch begrenzt. Die Nebenwirkungen sind zahlreich und zum Teil lebensbedrohlich. Immer wieder werden Zweifel am Aussagewert von Psychopharmakastudien geäußert, die Publikation von klinischen Studien mit Antidepressiva erfolgt offensichtlich nach willkürlichen Kriterien (NEJM, 2008). In einer kürzlichen Metaanalyse wurde die fehende Wirksamkeit von Antidepressiva bei leichten bis mittelschweren Depressionen konstatiert (PloS Medicine, 2008). Nur bei schweren Depressionen findet sich ein Vorteil von Antidepressiva gegenüber Placebos. 3. Die Neurobiologie psychischer Störungen wird seit Jahren intensiv untersucht, neue Untersuchungsverfahren wie MRT, PET, SPECT, Immunologie oder Molekulargenetik haben das Verständnis der zentralen Prozesse enorm verbessert. Neue Diagnose- und Behandlungsverfahren können daher stärker auf Wissen und weniger auf Zufallsbeobachtungen wie bisher basiert werden. STRESS Als eines der zentralen Geschehen gilt chronischer Stress, der vielfach zu bleibenden psychovegetativen Störungen führt. Ein kürzlich erschienenes Buch des Bonner Psychiaters Prof. Benkert (2006) hat den Begriff der „StressDepression" geprägt und damit „Stress" als ganz wesentlichen Grund für psychische Störungen einschließlich Depressionen in den Mittelpunkt

Envenenamiento hormonal negligencial

¿Reemplazo Hormonal? Diga ¡No Gracias! 1 Lógica de Sistemas y Autopoiesis Donnato de la O. Consultor Holonómico Envenenamiento Hormonal Negligencial • Salud; El mejor afrodisíaco Entre las diferencias que distinguen a los individuos de los dos sexos está el hecho de que, mientras el varón lanza su mente al aire y se entretiene con las cosas "importantes"; la brega, la conquista, los ideales, los descubrimientos y, a lo que finalmente todo esto conlleva, el esquilme de fortunas, la mujer se mantiene más aterrizada en el día con día, haciendo posible que las "triviali- dades" ordinarias de guarida, crianza, alimentación, amparo y salud, sucedan. Es un hecho, que yo corroboro con las estadísticas de mi clientela, el 80% de ella es femenino, por lo que es obvio que la mujer está más consciente de su cuerpo que el hombre. Todo hombre tiene la mente de un conquistador, esto lo hace un poco depredador. Todo hombre está orientado al poder, esto lo hace líder o sumiso. Nuestro sistema de castas está basado en esto. Hay gente "de casta" y descastados, vencedores y vencidos, jefes y subordinados, por la sencilla razón de que todavía pesa sobre nosotros la tara del instinto animal, del imperativo territorial, en donde el macho más poderoso y astuto controla y define su territorio, sometiendo a su voluntad al resto de la manada y aparece entonces el dulce encanto de la burguesía, la burocracia con sus jerarquías y sus privilegios.

What are hormones?Hormones are chemical messengers that flow through our bloodstream and enter tissues where they turn on switches to the genetic machinery, affecting the action of every cel in our body, either helping or ruining our lives depending on their balance, quantity, strength and body's reaction! Hormones are made in the ovaries, testes, adrenals, pituitary, pancreas, brain, thyroid, parathyroid and hypothalamus, just to name a few. These organs are also known as glands and belong to the bigger and more complex system: the endocrine system, which is like a symphony with several glands working both alone and together to orchestrate bodily functions. To put it in an analogy, "Touch one strand and the whole web trembles."

Historia de la concordia

RECOPILACIÓN HISTÓRICA DE CONCORDIA Luis María Medina PALABRAS INICIALES (primera edición 1977) Esta no es una historia de Concordia. Apenas si pretende ser una cronología de hechos, en la mayoría de los casos ya publicados. Es por ello que hasta el título de este trabajo aspira a ilustrar claramente al lector sobre el contenido del mismo. Consideramos que este trabajo es, simplemente, una recopilación histórica de nuestra ciudad. Desde fines del año 1969 y hasta principios de 1971, apareció en Concordia una revista semanal –"La Calle"- que incluyó en cada número una sección destinada a hacer conocer hechos y personas del pasado de nuestra ciudad. Volvieron del ayer, entonces, páginas agotadas de la historia lugareña, lo que contó con la aceptación unánime de los lectores. Esa labor se vio respaldada ampliamente, lográndose la colaboración espontánea de numerosos vecinos que aportaron revistas, libros, documentos y recuerdos, material que tuvo cabida en cada número de la citada publicación. Aparecieron también historiadores locales que volcaron sus estudios y conocimientos a la difusión general de un tema tan interesante. "La Calle" se transformó, entonces, en el medio más adecuado para hacer conocer retazos de la historia concordiense. GRAFELCO hoy puede ofrecer una recopilación cronológica de todo ese material, llenando algunos vacíos lógicos con el fruto de sus consultas en otras fuentes no directamente relacionadas con esta ciudad. Sin embargo, quedan aún muchos claros. Es por ello que reiteramos que ésta no es la historia de Concordia. No obstante, puede convertirse en el motivo fundamental para escribirla definitivamente, corrigiendo errores que seguramente existen en esta edición. Conocemos la labor silenciosa de algunos estudiosos de nuestro medio, que vienen gestando, desde mucho tiempo atrás, una obra de esta naturaleza. Y aunque no ignoramos que, además del tiempo que demanda dicha tarea, también deberán vencer el problema de su publicación –que malogra muchas veces las mejores inquietudes- aspiramos a que la presente sirva de acicate para quienes están empeñados en una obra similar. A ellos les auguramos el mayor de los éxitos. GRAFELCO
