A luz solar aumenta o bom humor. 😁🌞 Os lugares bem iluminados animam as pessoas, dando mais energia e bem-estar.
A nossa glândula pineal libera um hormônio chamado melatonina quando há menos luz solar, em maior quantidade na penumbra e na sombra, produzindo sensação de fadiga e sonolência. Já na luz intensa essa mesma glândula libera menos melatonina, deixando a pessoa mais ativa e empreendedora, porque a melatonina induz à sonolência.
A luz solar é energizante, melhora o humor de todas as pessoas. A escuridão deprime, levando a inatividade. Ilumine seu ambiente para iluminar sua vida.😊✌🏼 O livro "A incrível história dos remédios" diz que a penumbra das regiões setentrionais do planeta produz depressão, que cura com a exposição à luz.
Immune System May Mount Attack in Parkinson's
Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/immune-system-parkinsons-7187/
Drs. Sulzer and Sette, along with their colleagues, collected blood samples from 67 individuals with Parkinson's disease and 36 healthy controls. Immune cells were extracted from the samples and mixed with portions of the alpha-synuclein protein, which accumulates in the brains of people with PD and can result in cell death.
The research is in Nature. (full access paywall)
An interesting opinion from a guy who has experienced a lot. And it sounds way better in a serious Russian accent! In the past 5 years I have encountered a few really young athletes that told me they were working with a sports psychologist🤔. The parents thought it was a good idea and they had big expectations for their kid. I don't have anything against it really. However, none of these kids could even balance on one leg.😳 One thing I have noticed with athletes of all ages is that they often have "to many cooks in the kitchen." So be aware - are you trying to gain the advantage in one place without being prepared in another? Consolidate your efforts. Know what you need and have relentless accurately! #tmptipoftheday#burdenkomethod 🤓💪🏻
If you’ve been practicing medicine for 5 years and you think you have all the answers, you’re in the wrong profession. Patients get understandably frustrated when one year we say one thing, and the next year it appears we’re saying the exact opposite…But you shouldn’t be frustrated. Medicine has always been about trying to think logically, based on the best available data. And thank goodness that data changes. Jonathan LaPook, MD
#ProjectRun - Schedule Day #90
DAY #90 : THURSDAY, July 27
LOCATION: Intersection of Aikey Rd and Cold Run Rd - Hartleton, PA
DESTINATION: Kaseville, PA
MILES TO GO: 195 (*Reason for mileage jumping from 325 yesterday to 195 today is that Mike & Joey realized the distance from PA to NYC puts them at about roughly 2,907 miles rather than 3,000!)
MIKE HAS RUN 2712 MILES!! Let’s cheer him on and show him lots of support as he runs through #Pennsylvania , #TheKeystoneState !
Mike and his brother Joey launched #ProjectRun in honor of their grandmother, who passed in 2014 from Bulbar ALS. They are currently on DAY 90 on a 3,000-mile, 100-day journey running across America raising funds and awareness for ALS.
Please show your support as they make their way back home (fewer than 10 more days to go!) and help #ProjectRun reach its $100,000 fundraising goal (currently at $34K).
No donation is too small. $5. $50. $500. Every penny raised goes directly to vital @projectals research. Let's all do our part to fight ALS and end this degenerative disease forever.
***And join us on Friday, August 4 to celebrate Mike & Joey as they complete their 3,000 miles and make their final lap around Citi Field during a pre-game ceremony before the N.Y. Mets take on the L.A. Dodgers. (Visit Mets.com/tickets to purchase tickets to the game.).

Did you know malfunction of cranial bones and their connections (sutures) can cause muscle imbalances throughout the body? Many hidden imbalances are due to cranial faults. Concussions, TBIs (traumatic brain injuries), etc can cause problems with the nervous systems control of muscles. Very common for me to see people come in for a knee or shoulder problem only to discover during the testing that an old head injury they thought wasn't affecting them any longer ("because that was 20 years ago doc!") caused the muscle dysfunction around the painful joint. I also find cranial nerves, the nerves that control things like vision, speech, digestion, heart rate, blood pressure, affected after a head trauma. These things can all be corrected, but have to be FOUND first. You can't fix what you can't FIND.
What's going in that gut of yours today? Make sure it's nutritious, colorful, flavorful, and judgement-free!
Research conducted by Dr. Pasricha (2014), director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Neurogastroenterology, suggests that the enteric nervous system (ENS) consists of two thin layers of over 100 million nerve cells lining the gastrointestinal tract from esophagus to rectum.
Dr. Pasricha further explains that for years, researchers and doctors thought that anxiety and depression contributed to gastrointestinal ailments. However, more recent studies suggest that it may *also* be the other way around.
So eat well and feel well! 🌱🍎😋
In 2012, the drug abiraterone (Zytiga) was first made available on the NHS to treat men with advanced prostate cancer that has stopped responding to standard hormone treatment.
Now, a strong case is being made for the drug to be made available to even more men with prostate cancer.
According to results from the Cancer Research UK-funded STAMPEDE clinical trial, offering abiraterone plus prednisolone in combination with standard therapy to men with prostate cancer earlier, before the disease becomes resistant to standard hormone therapy, can help boost survival.
That’s the take home message from new findings presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago in the US. Read more http://bit.ly/2vLMkhb
Starting my day with a new health coaching client! I love when patients ask for help in changing their lifestyle towards the better. This client is looking for strategies to stop stress eating and incorporate a more nutritious diet. Have you ever tried to make a health change and had a hard time making it happen? Try integrative health coaching! If you have any questions I would love to talk to you about it! #nutrition#mindfulness#healthcoaching#dukeintegrativemedicine
Brethren, how una dey? So still on #medicaledutainment , this week I'm sharing a poem titled "COLLICULUS". While studying Neurology earlier in the year, I wrote this. In simple terms, there's a structure in our brain that does some quick processing when we hear loud bangs or see something coming at us (to mention a few), I was just "greeting" it. Got any Neurology friends? Tag them.
I've teamed up with some amazing friends to bring this to you. Enjoy and have a fantastic weekend.
