Complementary therapies for neck pain
This study is making news because of its major finding: when the participants were assessed a year after the start of the study (that is, 6 to 7 months after completing treatment), those assigned to acupuncture or Alexander Technique lessons reported significantly less pain and disability than those receiving usual care alone. No serious side effects due to treatment were reported. Of course, there are caveats Before we declare victory over neck pain, we should mention some important limitations of this research. They include: More than half of the patients with neck pain originally considered for the study were excluded....

Use of flumazenil and naloxone in poisoned patients
4 out of 5 stars Flumazenil, naloxone and the ‘coma cocktail’ Sivilotti MLA Br J Clin Pharmacol 2015 Aug 7 [Epub ahead of print] Abstract This very smart paper reviews factors affecting the clinical use of two antidotes that reliably reverse  coma caused by two major classes of poisons: flumazenil for benzodiazepines, and naloxone for opiates. Both these antidotes are specific, rapid-acting, short-lived, and titratable. However, significant adverse effects have been associated with each of them. Unwise or overly aggressive administration of flumazenil can cause acute benzodiazepine withdrawal, agitation, seiz...

Natural Way to Suppress Your Appetite and Shrink Your Waistline
On a recent research trip through the rainforest in Bali, my friend Westi showed me a tree called Cananga odorata (also known as ylang-ylang) that’s highly valued for the pleasing scent from its flowers, which are widely used in perfumes. Ylang-ylang is a sweet-scented oil made from the flowers of the herb Cananga odorata genuina. But traditional Balinese healers like my friend Westi know it has far more to offer. Ylang-ylang has been used for centuries to suppress appetite and control food cravings, along with helping to reduce anxiety, depression and stress. Ylang-ylang does this by stimulating your brain’s “satie...

Low-fat diets 'not the best way to lose weight'
Conclusion This review has aimed to answer the question of whether low-fat diets result in any greater weight loss compared with other diets, as has often been speculated. It showed they didn't. Most diets worked, and the low-fat ones weren't particularly better than the rest. The systematic review design has many strengths. It has identified a large number of studies, with almost 70,000 participants, all of which were randomised controlled trials. This should balance out any non-diet-related health and lifestyle characteristics between participants. It also only included trials of at least one year's duration to look at l...

Men are from Venus?
One of the most talked about speakers at my recent 2015 Palm Beach Anti-Aging Summit was New York Times bestselling author Dr. John Gray, who wrote the groundbreaking book “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.” Dr. Gray is an expert in understanding the differences between the sexes and teaching men and women to live in harmony by acknowledging them. During his speech, Dr. Gray revealed that those differences even extend to how environmental factors (including stress) can impact men and women differently. I’ve seen this phenomenon in my own research. The most obvious example is how our modern environment has in...

Tele-patients use tele-health service to receive advice or treatment from another location. I’m delighted for all my new patients that have already registered to become “tele-patients” from acros...

Men’s virility… much more than low-T
A low level of testosterone (“low-T”) is a huge problem for my older male patients… and it goes far beyond a decline in sexual drive. How low-T affects your health… Low-T associated with aging also causes decreased muscle mass and bone density, reduced insulin resistance and energy, and even depression. But going to a “low-T” clinic is not going to help you. These places are often fly-by-night operations that hand out “prescriptions” for testosterone that are rubber stamped by doctors who don’t even see the men coming into the clinics. Even worse, they don’t understand the testosterone protocol you M...

Depression and Complementary Health Approaches
Many individuals with depression turn to complementary health approaches as an adjunct to or in place of conventional treatment. Although these approaches are commonly used and readily available in the marketplace, many of these treatments have not been rigorously studied for depression. For this reason, it’s important that you understand the benefits and risks of these complementary approaches to advise your patients. A Task Force on Complementary and Alternative Medicine of the American Psychiatric Association conducted a review in 2010 of complementary approaches in psychiatry and found that, based on the quality of ...
