Now regenerate your degenerating joints 16.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As we age, degeneration of cells hastens. Many of us experience the ill effects of degenerating bone cells. Bones can weaken over a period of time, because of age, inadequate nourishment, or absence of activity and movement. Degenerative joint disorders like osteoarthritis can bring about the decay of the ligament tissue. The most commonly damaged joints are those of the knee, hip, ankle and shoulder. Treatment of such ailments are, unfortunately, often done with physiotherapy or surgical techniques. However, now there is a revolutionary new approach, which aims at reversing the disease by regeneration of damaged cells. Magnetic resonance therapy works in the same way as the MRI technology. It stimulates hydrogen protons through the use of radio waves, by putting them into a state of high energy. As the therapy introduces energy into specific cells or groups to stimulate their regeneration; it can often lead to increased functioning of the joint and significant pain reduction.

Steroid intake can cause early cataract 16.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Steroidal medicines are life-saving, and are prescribed by doctors for conditions like chronic inflammatory illnesses, allergies such as asthma, eczema and various skin diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid and other arthritis, neurological and eye diseases, etc. Prolonged steroid intake, even in the form of inhalers, skin creams, nasal or eye drops, could result in cataract and glaucoma.

Knowing the secrets of the microbiome 13.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Modern technology is making it possible for medical scientists to analyse inhabitants of our innards that most people probably would rather not know about. But the resulting information could one day save your health or even your life. Im referring to the trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi that inhabit virtually every body part, including those tissues once thought to be sterile. Together, they make up the human microbiome and represent what is perhaps the most promising yet challenging task of modern medicine: determining the normal microscopic inhabitants of every organ and knowing how to restore the proper balance of organisms when it is disrupted. Proof of principle, as scientists call it, has already been established for a sometimes devastating intestinal infection by the bacterium Clostridium difficile. This infection, popularly called C diff, often occurs when potent antibiotics wipe out the normal bacterial inhabitants of the gut that otherwise keep it in check. When all else fails to clear ...
