Mobile units to expand Campbell’s health care reach in the state | News | Campbell University – Campbell University News

Posted: May 13, 2021 at 1:47 am

In one of his first appearances as new dean of the Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Brian Kessler laid out the main goals of the school at Wednesdays dedication ceremony for the Universitys new mobile health clinics.

Provide holistic, evidence-based osteopathic medical education that is patient-centered. Develop outreach sites in rural and underserved areas of the state. And collaborate with hospitals to provide health care and education services to the region.

The two mobile clinics each a veritable hospital and medical school on wheels will go a long way in helping Campbell achieve two of those goals.

Theyre pretty lofty goals, said Kessler, who assumed his new role on May 1. I can tell you, the vehicles sitting out there Im elated. The words on the side of each clinic say Leading With Purpose which means to exemplify community and to live a life of faith and inquiry. I know with these mobile clinics, Campbell can lead with purpose by extending our reach further into the communities that need us and really look for the support we provide.

Wednesdays ceremony marked a public introduction for the two 40-foot-long vehicles, while a third smaller vehicle (26 feet) is expected to join the fleet in the coming weeks. According to Bob Schmid, assistant professor of simulation medicine and technical director of the medical schools simulation center, the capabilities of the mobile clinics are mind boggling.

What can these vehicles do? What cant they do? Schmid said. Each unit has two exam rooms, fully equipped with everything a physician needs to do primary care procedures and practice. We have lab space, we have refrigeration for immunization materials, and we have educational systems to provide information on primary care issues, health care concerns and in this particular part of the country diabetes, obesity and smoking cessation.

Schmid said the third vehicle will allow Campbell students and faculty to better reach local migrant farms and other locations with greater ease. The mobile units have their first major event appearance scheduled for May 30 through June 4 in Mount Olive. There, a team of medical students will provide immunizations and vaccinations for migrant farm workers.

The mobile units were made possible by the $6 million grant Campbell University received from the North Carolina General Assembly in 2020, according to Dr. Britt Davis, vice president for advancement. Davis thanked Lisa Outlaw and John Lekovec of the North Carolina Pandemic Recovery Office at the ceremony.

The NCPRO employs 20 to 25 individuals responsible for more than $3.6 billion in COVID-19 relief funds, Davis said. Its an incredible task, and were grateful for the small part Campbell is playing.

Campbell President Dr. J. Bradley Creed said the mobile units are helping Campbell make a difference in the lives of its students and in the communities they serve.

A school like Campbell has a moral obligation to the area in which its located and beyond that, like concentric circles moving out, Creed said. And so we do this as an educational institution to help our state make life better for people who are lacking primary care.

He pointed to Campbells efforts to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in recent months as an example of serving others through its growing health care programs.

And while respecting human freedom, we have work to do with education about the role of vaccines, said Creed, pointing out that roughly 20 percent of residents in Harnett County are vaccinated. I think about in my lifetime, of all the vaccines and the good that theyve done with measles, rubella, mumps, diphtheria, whooping cough and various strains of hepatitis. On and on, we could go. And so many people have had better lives and healthier lives, and longer lives because of that.

So I thank all of you for the role that youve played in this. And not just the million dollar-plus merchandise that we see out there. But also by helping us extend our mission of education and health care to those who are most in need, or as Jesus would say, the least of these.

Why holistic view is needed to treat COVID-19 long-haul symptoms – American Medical Association

Posted: at 1:47 am

Many people who have tested positive for COVID-19 continue to experience symptoms that require care months after recovering. These patients, known as COVID long-haulers, often have symptoms that linger 30 days after SARS-CoV-2 infection. To address the needs of these patients, Atlantic Health Systema member of the AMA Health System Programcreated a recovery center focused on COVID long-haulers.

In August, Steven Sheris, MD, senior vice president of physician enterprise at Atlantic Health and president of the Atlantic Medical Group, walked into the office of Scott Lauter, MD, an internist and chief medical officer of the group, and proposed developing a COVID-19 recovery center. Dr. Lautner agreed, organized a working group of clinical stakeholders and the Atlantic COVID Recovery Center opened six weeks later in October. To date, the recovery center has seen about 300 patients with COVID long-hauler symptoms.

We had been seeing a lot of these patients back from the initial wave of COVID-19 and trying to help them, but really looking at it more from the pulmonary standpoint, said Federico Cerrone, MD, a pulmonary critical care and sleep medicine specialist with Atlantic Medical Group and center co-director. Especially in the beginning, a lot of these patients were lost.

We are seeing patients with PTSD, anxiety, depression, brain fog, headaches and overwhelming fatigue that lasts for months," said David Sousa, MD, a pulmonologist and critical care physician at Atlantic Medical Group as well as center co-director. Weve also seen some persistent tachycardia as well as patients who seem really healthy, but desaturate in the final minutes of their six-minute walk test.

Patient-centered approach

When Dr. Lautner and Dr. Sheris started talking about opening up a COVID recovery center, we started looking at taking it as a more patient-centered approach, said Dr. Cerrone. Its not just looking at the pulmonary issues, but really looking at cardiac, neurocognitive and behavioral issues while helping the patient navigate the system.

We do an intake that looks at all the systems, screens people for all the things that we know post-COVID recovery does, gets you appropriately referred and timely seen, said Dr. Sousa, adding that they have a feedback circle to create a plan that is unique to the patient because with COVID, people experience this differently.

Mental health has affected everyone

We've all had COVIDwhether or not we had the virusbecause we've all been impacted emotionally, said Dr. Sheris. Theres a subset of people who are manifesting as either behavioral issues or somatic body complaints that are a result of the COVID trauma, if not from the COVID virus itself.

General post-ICU syndrome is the cognitive behavioral health and physical symptoms that the patient experiences, but there is a component called PICS-F, which is really the family, friends, their social network and what they feel, said Dr. Sousa. Doing a lot of these conversations with families over Zoom, not being able to be there at the bedside, theres a tremendous impact on peoples support structure.

Peer support groups for behavioral health

Whether someone is a COVID long-hauler or a family member, the Atlantic COVID Recovery Center offers a virtual peer support group that meets every Wednesday. Made up of peers as well as physicians and other health professionals, individuals are offered support on how to manage emotional and psychological challenges that accompany COVID-19.

When you have these patients, who have confusing chronic conditions that are poorly understood, the one thing they need most of all is a place to call home, a place that they can be seen, they can be listened to, they can be taken at face value, said Dr. Lauter. And then the team will act on what they hear.

In the beginning, it was really important to reassure patients that they weren't alone, and other people were experiencing it and going through the same thingit goes a long way, said Dr. Cerrone, adding that our peer support groups have done a great job with helping them.

Easy access to the program

It's all about access, availability and removing barriers to care, said Dr. Sheris. If anything, COVID has created a lot of medical uncertainty, but it's also laid bare a lot of the fragmentation, inequity and access to health care.

Even in non-COVID illness, patients often select the specialist they think corresponds to the symptoms that they're having, he said. And they go from specialist to specialist until they find the right one. That's the normal order of business in a fragmented health care system. That's not coordinated.

Now you take COVID where patients have vague symptoms that are not clearly attributable to a specific specialist, Dr. Sheris added, noting that with COVID long-haulers, they are left to arrange an appointment with a specialist who they think they need.

But with the Atlantic COVID Recovery Center, we just tell patients, If you think you're sick and you think it's from COVID, come see us first. We'll help you figure it out, he said. It's a very empathetic program and thats the nature of making it patient-centered.

Resources are also available from the AMA to help physiciansmanage their own mental healthand well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic. The AMA also providespractical strategies for health system leadership to considerin support of theirphysicians and care teams during COVID-19.

Future Of HealthcareFocus Should Be On Preventative And Holistic Care For All: Viren Shetty – Forbes India

Posted: at 1:46 am

Illustration: Sameer Pawar

What if this pandemic never goes away? I ask a computer screen dotted with pixels somewhat resembling managers and doctors from across our network of hospitals. No response. Nine months into this pandemic and our videoconferencing skills were abortive at best.

What if the world never goes back to normal, and this is what our future looks like? I could sense the mood in the room shift a little, but still no response. I check the audio settings and curse the UX choices of the developers behind our videoconferencing app.

How will our business thrive in a world permanently scarred by Covid-19? I ask as loud as is possible in a professional setting.

The session did not go the way I had hoped it would. Everyone I spoke with maintained that the pandemic was almost over, and that business will get back to normal. I found this hard to believe. This rogue strand of RNA had already humbled the smartest people to ever face a television camera and brought the world economy to its knees. If there is a simple narrative, it would be that the coronavirus controls the world, and we need to do its bidding. The more nuanced narrative is that we will never wake up to a pre-Covid world, and we need to adapt our business to succeed in a new world order dominated by uncertainty. I was hoping we would come up with a better solution than copy-pasting the 2019 business plan for 2021 and hoping for the best.

Nobody knows for certain what this new world looks like, nor do they know how to succeed in that new world. But people like me are paid by their investors to predict the future and we need to have bold and confident strategies like The Future is Digital or We will SaaS our Blockchain on an Electric Cloud. There is footage of me telling news channels quite confidently that masks are not necessary, the coronavirus will be contained to East Asia, and lockdowns will flatten the curve, so my credibility as a Covid expert is quite low. But I have a library full of books which use the words disruptive innovation a lot, so I know exactly what companies that are nothing like mine did 30 years ago to survive in a country with a high ease-of-doing-business score. With the spirits of Harvard strategy professors whispering in my ear, my predictions for Indias future are: 1) Businesses will get disrupted; 2) People will still need health care; and 3) Magazine editors will still want Future of X articles from business leaders.

India has highly skilled doctors, but the pace of their emigration is likely to skyrocket after the pandemic as the West faces a shortage of staffImage: Amarjeet Kumar Singh / Sopa Images / Light Rocket via Getty Images

There are enough beneficiaries of todays technology industry singing paeans to the benefits of technological innovation, but none from the past. I have sourced some of my favourite historical quotes on the topic: Why is that hairless ape carrying a stick twice his size? Last thoughts of the first woolly mammoth to meet the pointy end of a spear.

These printed Bibles sure seem to be getting popular. Should we ban them? Pope Leo X, right before the Protestant Reformation.

What do you mean the ghost people are carrying metal tubes that spit lightning and thunder? Montezuma, last Emperor of the Aztecs.

As history shows us, time and time again, the benefits of disruption usually accrue to the ones doing the disrupting. We do not know what kind of disruption the health care industry will see, but we know that when books are written about us decades from now, we will belong to the Can you believe they used to do this? chapter.

The next decade will see an explosion of software that will help doctors make better clinical decisions

Health care is still very hospital-centric and hospitals are the most expensive places to deliver health care because they have to account for every minor contingency. A hospital in India and a hospital in Germany are made of 90 percent similar components, even though their patients come from two completely different worlds. The cost of delivering health care has increased dramatically, led by higher input costs for drugs and consumables, followed by higher salaries to doctors and nurses working in a riskier clinical environment.

As Indian hospitals become even more specialised, they are leaving poor patients with regular ailments further and further behind. To make things worse, the spend on public health care is not growing as fast as the disease burden. This will keep increasing the quality gap between health care delivered in public hospitals versus private hospitals, which in turn will push the out-of-pocket health care spend, already among the highest in the world, even higher.

Narayana Healths mission is to make high quality health care accessible to everyone. We made a name for ourselves by becoming a focus factory for low-cost surgical procedures and driving down costs through process innovation. We have now reached the limit of how low we can safely drive down costs and every incremental improvement we have rolled out has faced diminishing returns. The flaw lies in the current model of delivering health care, which Dr Robbie Pearl from Kaiser Permanente instead calls delivering sick care. Hospitals focus on delivering surgeries, medicines and procedures to patients in the most efficient way possible. But what if that is the wrong model? What if instead of lowering the cost of a medical procedure, we focus on preventing that procedure from having to take place?

Narayana Health has always looked up to health systems like Kaiser Permanente that manage the entire spectrum of care for their patient members. We believe that a fully integrated health care system that incorporates preventative medicine, primary, secondary and tertiary care in a coordinated manner is more relevant to developing countries like India with a younger and poorer population. This is the only way to ensure that hospitals are completely aligned with a patients long-term incentive to live a healthy life. Narayana Health has begun the process of becoming a fully integrated health care provider and we will know over the next 10 years whether this was the right call.

Digital technology has wreaked havoc across massive industries like transportation, hospitality, food, media, retail and finance, and transformed those industries into something my grandfather would scarcely recognise. There is nothing to suggest that the health care industry will be immune to disruptive innovation coming from non-traditional health care companies catering to the aspirations of a digital-native customer base. There are several billion-dollar health care startups that are bypassing hospitals and offering primary care directly to patients. The largest technology companies in the world have expressed an interest in building a health care vertical and are partnering with health care providers to build solutions that bend the cost/quality curve.

Tech companies need large amounts of patient data and clinical insight to build technology solutions that can automate medical decision-making. The next decade will see an explosion of software that will help doctors make better clinical decisions or empower patients to take care of their own health. It will be interesting to see if tech companies continue working with hospitals once they realise they can sell their products directly to patients or doctors and cut out the intermediary. They do make lovely presentations about being together forever, but we have built a large software development arm of our own. Just in case.

The medical field has benefited immensely from scientific progress and cutting-edge technology that has made it possible to cure diseases that were previously thought incurable. Technologies like CRISPR have the potential to eliminate certain types of cancers and genetic disease. Newer classes of drugs and medical implants can extend the average persons lifespan. None of these were developed in India, and we are completely reliant on universities or companies from the developed world for cutting-edge innovation. Despite our size, we do not have enough specialists available for treating complex diseases and recording their results in a searchable electronic format. The few specialists who are available are too busy treating patients to spend any time doing unremunerated clinical research.India will need to rapidly scale up the medical education and health care infrastructure to 10 times the present size, to have the critical mass of health care professionals required for innovation to flourish. Clinical research is one field that India can dominate because we have the most critical raw ingredientmillions and millions of sick people. Over the coming years, most major Indian hospitals will run large clinical research divisions in partnership with multinational drug companies or foreign universities.

The future holds great promise, but there are several worrying signals for Indian health care in the near term. Our public finances are stretched thin, and the government will be severely constrained in its ability to ramp up health care spending to fund a national procedure reimbursement scheme and a national Covid vaccination programme at the same time. Procedure reimbursements from government programmes have not changed in over seven years, and most hospitals have huge accounts receivable from government payors. Private equity investment into new hospitals has stopped as the ten-year return on capital is less than the cost of capital for greenfield projects. Most of the investment coming into the Indian hospital sector is being used to fund M&A deals, not add more beds.

The part that worries me most is the growing shortage of skilled manpower. The pace of emigration of Indian doctors and nurses will skyrocket after the pandemic as health care systems in the West face staffing shortages from early retirements of their stressed-out health care workers. Medicine is not a preferred option for students from developed countries, and their governments will relax the visa requirements to encourage a large number of skilled doctors and nurses from Asia to fill the gap. India has some of the most highly skilled doctors in the world working in an environment that does not always value their output. Relatively few doctors who graduate become specialists and earn enough to live in a nice neighbourhood, drive a nice car and put their kids in a good school. Those who dont get into artificially scarce postgraduate training programmes will get disheartened and start looking abroad.

History is littered with examples of pandemics reshaping society. The Justinian plagues split the Roman empire and ended the Mediterranean dominance of Europe. The Black Death tilted the feudal compact in favour of the peasants. The Spanish flu spurred the creation of national health care systems and influences hospital design up to the present day. The Covid pandemic has laid bare the fragility of our health care systems and been an equal-opportunity destroyer of rich and poor lives across the country. Through the darkest days of this pandemic, I console myself with the hope that millions of people who have lost someone to Covid are going to find their voice. They will rise up to the people in power and say, Never again. They will demand a better system that provides health care for everyone, because until all of us are safe, none of us are safe.

Country Ever After Star Criscilla Anderson Seeks Alternative Care in Cancun for Stage 4 Colon Cancer: Im Combining Western Medicine with Natural Cures…

Posted: at 1:46 am

Covering Her Bases

Reality star Criscilla Anderson, 41, has taken a break from family life in Texas to pursue alternative cancer treatment in Cancun.

The wife and mother has been battling stage 4 colon cancer, and has been flying from her home base in Dallas to Los Angeles for traditional chemotherapy treatments. She announced on Instagram Tuesday that she was adding alternative therapy to her conventional treatment.

Hello Mexico! Today I started my 3 week journey @hope4cancermexico An all natural treatment facility for cancer patients. An alternative to chemo and conventional medicine, she wrote on Instagram. As you all know Im combining western medicine with natural cures. And this battle isnt a one trip or one place cure type of fight. Its life long and continuous.

Alternative medicine has not been shown to improve cancer outcomes. According to a study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, patients who chose to treat common cancers using only alternative medicine had a 2.5 times higher mortality rate than patients receiving standard cancer treatments.

Criscilla, however, explains that she wholeheartedly believes in this treatment facility, and will be doing everything from diet to IVs, hyperthermia to massages. All of it.

Criscilla stopped her first round of chemotherapy treatment last year to try an alternative approach, which was ultimately not successful. She and her husband, Coffey, 43, went to Spain for alternative treatments, and in April 2020, Criscilla reported her tumors were shrinking. Although she was convinced that she would be healed by her next scan, that is not what happened. Criscilla started chemo again early this year.

At her last scan, she received good news.

Great scan results! she wrote on her Instagram stories a couple weeks ago. All tumors shrunk to normal lymph node size.

She also shared that her blood work was within the normal range. Im taking it in, she said. My Dr. reminded me this chemo doesnt eradicate cancer, but this is the best I could have asked for. My God is bigger than chemo.

Criscilla first started noticing symptoms in May 2018. She was doubled over with stomach pain.

An emergency colonoscopy revealed a blockage, and then she wound up in the hospital for immediate surgery. Doctors removed two feet of her colon and at the time, Criscilla was diagnosed stage 3 colon cancer.

Then after a brief remission, she received the devastating news that she had stage 4, or metastatic, colon cancer. The cancer has spread throughout my para-aortic region and has begun growing up my back, she announced via Instagram.

Experts say that there are multiple treatment options available for patients with advanced disease, and there have been improvements made in survival.

Dr. Heather Yeo from Weill Cornell Medicine explains advanced colon cancer with SurvivorNet.

Stage 4 colorectal cancer means that the cancer has spread away from the colon to a distant part in the body or to another organ nearby, she says. Sometimes with different chemotherapy and surgical treatment, you can get patients to have complete cure. Their chance of survival is lower than stage 3. But we still get cures even in stage 4 patients, which I think is really exciting.

Many people, patients included, are often confused by the term alternative when it comes to medicine.

Dr. Jason Westin, an oncologist at MD Anderson Cancer Center, explains alternative vs. complementary medicine to SurvivorNet.

Integrative medicine is an approach to care that puts the patient in the center of care and everything flows from that, Dr. Westin explains to us. It emphasizes lifestyle behavior, like diet, stress management, nutrition, and it also blends the best of conventional medicine and complementary therapies. So its not about throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It very much believes in the power of conventional medicine, but its trying to bring in other evidence-based approaches, and to optimize peoples health and well-being.

Related: Magic Mushrooms Go Mainstream: Can They Really Help Cancer Patients With Depression & Anxiety?

Alternative medicine is thought about therapies that are in place of conventional care, Dr. Westin says. Complementary medicine, which came out of Europe, is really a wide variety of therapies and approaches, from mind-body approaches, to Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, diet and nutrition. And then integrative medicine is a combination of the best of conventional medicine and complementary medicine, but places the patient in the center.

Interestingly enough, roughly four in 10 Americans (39%) believe cancer can be cured solely through alternative therapies such as enzyme and oxygen therapy, diet, vitamins and minerals, according to a national survey conducted by the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

However, a study from the Yale School of Medicine in 2018 found that people who use complementary methodswhich is usually a term for vitamins, herbs, special diets, Reiki, acupuncture, and meditationare more likely to refuse standard cancer treatments, and sadly, more likely to die because of it. Other experts say this study is flawed because integrative medicine is really just added to standard treatment to cope with side effects.

Stronger, more resilient: Hospitals respond to pandemic with growth, change – Daily Herald

Posted: at 1:46 am

When COVID-19 first emerged, few could have predicted its far reaching and devastating impact or how long the pandemic would last. 2020 and early 2021 tested everyone's resilience, patience and strength, but possibly few were tested more than health care workers and the hospitals in which they serve.

After a long, difficult period, local hospitals have emerged with not only greater knowledge of how to treat and manage COVID-19, but also how to continue improving care across all aspects of their systems.

Just over one year after the pandemic began, hospitals reflected on what they've learned and the resilience of their staffs and are looking ahead to the new and innovative ways they're serving the community.

Treating COVID-19 looks very different today than it did a year ago. Hospitals have gained an immense amount of knowledge about the virus and how to care for those affected by it.

"We have learned how variable this virus can be -- not only in terms of exposure risk and contracting the virus and the severity of symptoms, but also the duration of symptoms," said Jean Lydon, Chief Nursing Officer at Elmhurst Hospital.

Patients are now treated by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals working closely together to address physical and emotional needs of patients and families.

"The treatment of COVID-19 positive patients continues to evolve. We have a consortium of physicians and other clinicians that meet regularly to review the latest science and treatment protocols," said Polly Davenport, senior vice president and regional operating officer, Amita Health, and president, Amita Health St. Alexius Medical Center Hoffman Estates. "We've learned what it takes to contain the spread of this illness, protecting our associates, physicians and other patients."

Advocate Aurora Health, which includes Advocate Condell Medical Center, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and Advocate Sherman Hospital, acknowledged that health care providers now understand COVID-19 far better than they did in March 2020 and have scaled new clinical best practices to treat patients in the system's hospitals as a result. Advocate Aurora Health also found ways to deliver important care and support to noncritical patients suffering from both COVID-19 and other illnesses. The system rapidly expanded consumer-first offerings, including telemedicine, self-management tools and an AI-powered COVID symptom checker.

Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) in Arlington Heights noted that treatment of COVID-19 changed frequently. They adapted quickly as understanding of the disease progressed and what was once a very frightening and labor-intensive situation has now become almost the norm with standardized protocols that are now part of NCH's daily routine.

As a result, length of stay for these patients has decreased along with the need for ventilator support and intensive care. Most importantly, the mortality has decreased significantly.

"We are in the process of transitioning from the care and treatment of COVID-19 to prevention as we roll out the largest vaccination effort in history," said Alan Loren, M.D., Ph.D., NCH Chief Medical Officer.

As soon as the pandemic hit, it became clear that hospital operations across the country needed to change to meet the growing crisis. Hospital systems drew on all the knowledge available within their networks to share best practices and lessons learned more than they ever have before, with the result often being developing even more efficient ways to operate as a cohesive system overall.

"There's not an area of care or process that hasn't been touched. For all the challenges faced through this pandemic, we have learned to be nimbler as we've dealt with a great deal of ambiguity and uncertainty," said Davenport.

Staff at Edward-Elmhurst Health (EEH) adapted operations in response to COVID-19.

Employees were quickly dispatched to work remotely with little to no interruption in business processes and productivity, communication among hospital staff became more robust, and telehealth was employed almost immediately following the outbreak and has continued to expand exponentially since then. In another operations change, testing tents were pitched adjacent to Edward-Elmhurst Emergency Departments and drive-through testing in the parking lot of their Corporate Center in Warrenville.

"It was so successful and well received by patients that we opened a new health center in Downers Grove and are piloting drive-through services for procedures not related to COVID," said Mary Lou Mastro, System CEO, Edward-Elmhurst Health.

COVID-19 affected Advocate Aurora Health at every level of the organization. The system responded quickly by shifting use of clinical space to expand ICU capacity and used predictive analytics tools to respond to the operational challenges introduced by the virus to best predict and respond to patient surges.

Creating predictive models of COVID-19 test positivity, infection control and bed and ventilator utilization helped Advocate Aurora Health allocate critical supplies and staff across sites to accommodate surges. While the past year undoubtedly tested the system in unthinkable ways, their COVID-19 response has allowed them to grow into a more flexible operation that is positioned to provide best-in-class care well into the future.

Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital also recognized the need for individuals and teams to be flexible not only in the face of the pandemic, but in preparation for whatever else the future may bring. The hospital cross-trained staff for other roles or departments, which promoted engagement, professional development, collaboration, efficiency and versatility. Changes to workflow helped the hospital manage the pandemic and now allows the facility to care for even more patients.

"Our ability to flex to take additional patients has been greatly enhanced post-pandemic. The ability to flex both staff and beds has allowed us to safely care for additional patients when historically, we may have chosen to go on bypass," said Suzanne T. McCoy, DNP, RN, Flinn Family Chief Nursing Executive at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital.

The second patient in the nation identified with COVID-19 was treated at Amita Health St. Alexius Medical Center, as was the nation's first confirmed person-to-person transmission of the illness. Even in the face of the unknown, nurses, physicians, respiratory care specialists, infection control practitioners, environmental services associates came together as a team to take on a seemingly endless challenge and never missed a step.

"When all this began, we had no idea we would still be in the midst of it more than a year later. But, due to the resilience and dedication of every associate and physician who cares for our patients, COVID-19 care and precautions have simply become part of our normal operations," said Davenport.

Mastro has worked in hospitals and health care for more than 45 years and has never witnessed anything like the Edward-Elmhurst Health team's remarkable response to the pandemic. She said team members demonstrated incredible creativity while identifying solutions for patient care, safety, and infection control. They learned new roles as well as how to pivot at a moment's notice to keep up with constantly evolving CDC and IDPH guidelines, and through it all, they always supported and cared for one another.

"Although our team's dedication came with personal sacrifice, there was never a doubt that they would pull together to do whatever necessary to provide skilled and compassionate care for our patients, families and the community," said Mastro. "They are heroes who will forever be remembered for their unselfish and dedicated commitment to others."

Northwestern Medicine has always prided itself on having great teamwork and a staff committed to caring for their community, and the pandemic took those elements to the next level. At Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva, staff stepped out of traditional roles, work hours and their comfort zones to meet the challenges the pandemic presented, while keeping staff and patients safe. The relentless pace taught the hospital that they could make changes quickly and could utilize the creativity of staff members to navigate challenging situations.

"Allowing our staff to be part of solutions to situations we had never faced before was paramount to our success," said Gina Reid Tinio, Ph.D., MS, MPH, Flinn Family Chief Nurse Executive, Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital.

Now over a year into the pandemic, Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield knows the full strength of its team. Each team member's tireless efforts new relationships and collaborations between departments were fostered and are here to stay.

"Our team is committed to providing excellent care in our community and have demonstrated time and time again that they will rise to any challenge presented with a 'can do' attitude," said Kate Matousek, vice president of operations at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital.

The pandemic reminded leaders at hospitals that are part of Advocate Aurora Health just how resilient and dedicated the system's team members and physicians are. All team members came together in an environment full of uncertainty to provide exceptional patient care.

Dr. James Keller, chief medical officer at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, part of Advocate Aurora Health, was impressed by how team members and physicians went well beyond their duties to continue serving patients, despite not knowing the risk to themselves when the pandemic first hit.

The team at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, part of Advocate Aurora Health, rallied around one another to not only provide care to patients, but ensure that colleagues had the support they needed to continue the fight against COVID-19. Patients needed team members' and nurses' strength and emotional and mental support more than ever, especially when visitor restrictions prevented friends and family from being physically present for loved ones.

"I'm proud of the many ways we pushed ourselves to find better ways to care for our patients -- from virtual visits to staying on the leading edge of COVID-19 treatments. The lessons and experiences of the last year will leave a lasting mark on our approach to health care, and on our hearts," said Mary Roesch, chief nursing officer at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, part of Advocate Aurora Health.

Although hospitals focused on COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021, they haven't stopped providing exceptional and compassionate care to patients suffering from other conditions. Even amid uncertain and stressful times, hospitals continue to innovate, expand services and find even more ways to connect with patients.

Edward-Elmhurst Health has launched several initiatives to support and educate the community about the pandemic, including a virtual six-week complimentary COVID-19 Loss Support Group for those 18 and older who lost a loved one during the pandemic and opening a new location at 2205 Butterfield Road in Downers Grove that provides COVID testing for patients and COVID vaccinations for EEH employees. This fall, EEH will open the Woodridge Health Center in Woodridge at Route 53 and 75th Street. Patients will have the opportunity to see primary care and specialist physicians at the new location. In addition, Woodridge Health Center will feature a walk-in clinic for weekend and after-hours care, behavioral health services, diagnostic radiology (X-rays, mammography, ultrasound and MRIs), lab services, physical therapy and a weight loss clinic.

Advocate Lutheran General Hospital also developed innovative ways to support the community throughout the pandemic, including distributing nearly 40,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at the site's COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic and working to launch a post-COVID Clinic to support patients experiencing long-term or lingering health effects associated with the virus. In October, The Comprehensive Stroke Clinic opened at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital's Brain & Spine Institute (1700 Luther Lane, Suite 1170, Park Ridge) to provide patients with a multidisciplinary, comprehensive approach to stroke care. Additionally, the Center for Health and Integrative Medicine at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, recently opened to support patients' wellness journeys using a holistic, evidence-based healing approach. The center offers specialized yoga classes, therapeutic massage, acupuncture and nutrition counseling, along with personalized coaching. In addition, a Health Management Resources (HMR) program launched last year to help patients lose weight and keep it off through a structured, medically supervised program that combines diet plans, health education and behavioral change.

NCH is also looking to the future with the May opening of the new Women's Center, located on the hospital campus in Arlington Heights. The Center will offer breast health services, including a complete offering of screening and diagnostic services, as well as a Pelvic Floor and Bladder Program that includes pelvic floor physical therapy, bladder treatments, biofeedback, urodynamics and minimally invasive surgical treatments, with more offerings planned for the future. Additionally, NCH's newest Outpatient Care Center is also scheduled to open this fall at 15 S. McHenry Road in Buffalo Grove.

"Our goal is to make expert care easily accessible to all. This center will house a number of primary care physicians as well as a selection of specialty services. By consolidating all these services in a single location, it serves as a health care hub for the entire community, and a direct extension of our hospital services already available on our Arlington Heights campus," said Loren.

Throughout the pandemic, Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital continued providing vital services in addition to its COVID-19 response. The hospital was able to continue removing brain tumors thanks to a new same-day brain surgery program, launched by neurosurgeon Dr. Osaama Khan. In addition, Northwestern Medicine expanded access to outpatient behavioral health services for adolescents and adults at 7 Blanchard Circle near Wheaton's Danada Square, bringing partial hospital outpatient programming to the same building that houses Northwestern Medicine Immediate Care and medical offices. No matter the need, the hospital wants the community to know that it's safe to return to medical settings.

"I would like people to know that it is safe to return to our hospital setting. We have seen many patients delay preventive tests and/or delay in seeking health care which has led to patients being sicker than what we usually see," said Angela Black, MSN, RN, vice president of operations, Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital.

Amita Health System is also happy to welcome patients and visitors back for their recommended testing and screenings. Throughout the system, exciting technology is being used, including true augmented reality for spine surgery at Amita Health Alexian Brothers Medical Center Elk Grove Village and the latest generation of robot-assisted technology for general surgery and gynecologic and urology procedures at both Amita Health Alexian Brothers and Amita Health St. Alexius Medical Center Hoffman Estates, among other technological advancements.

"In addition, we're happy to welcome Dr. Michael Rezak, neurologist, whose focus on movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, will allow us to begin deep brain stimulation treatment at Amita Health St. Alexius Medical Center this summer," said Davenport.

2. A holistic approach that includes social and physical activity

Aging may bring changes to the nature of social and physical activities, but they are more important than evercommon areas, events, group dining, classes and recreational offerings help maintain a culture of connection and wellbeing.

At Grand Traverse Pavilions those porches and courtyards are more than just attractive amenitiestheyre instrumental in creating an environment that fosters interaction and time spent outdoors. Benches, bird feeders and garden beds fill the courtyards, and ADA-accessible walking paths connect the varied buildings to the Grand Lawn.

Residents work with professional life-enrichment coordinators to help craft their own plans for recreation, dining and more. A shuttle bus takes residents to baseball games, the theatre, concerts or group dining outings in the surrounding community.

Dining is a social affair, with a communal atmosphere and restaurant-style menus. Meals are made from scratch under the direction of dining services director James Hunter, whose famous chocolate bread pudding is a fan favorite. Chefs provide monthly cooking classes for residents, and there are plenty of foodie-friendly events like wine tastings, birthday celebrations or special happenings such as the annual strawberry social, where residents get in on the meal prep.

Social events are designed to be shared with friends, family and the community. Each summer, the Great Lawn surrounding the campus has been home to open-air concerts that began as an outlet for residents to enjoy but soon ballooned into a beloved community event drawing up to 5,000 attendees at a time, including family members, grandchildren, dogs, neighbors and any music-loving community member.

Decoding the Pandemic Impact – WTMJ-TV

Posted: at 1:46 am

This past year has been a testing ground. These exceptional times have revealed new things about us, some of them good, some of them hard to acknowledge. I personally found myself wondering how I could keep going many times over. This struggle was only further complicated by the guilt of knowing many people were much worse off and even fighting for their lives.

It took weeks and months to fully grasp the fundamental shifts and changes in how our world was operating. Adaptation seemed to be a necessity, but the information was unclear, and the path forward felt equally obscured. For many, technology became a lifeline. Almost everything became remote and virtual as the world moved on. Some felt a slowing down and others an acceleration in the pace of life, heightened by the need to perpetually multi-task. For those expected to work from home with children virtually schooling, life became increasingly unmanageable. The posts via social media that boasted creative and innovative home/school/work solutions were admirable but somehow unsustainable. Some people celebrated the deviation from their routine and opportunity for more "together" time as a household; for those struggling, watching others navigate with apparent ease only added a layer of guilt and inadequacy.

Reflecting on the impact of the last year is a necessity, and yet, this time of uncertainty is not over. So many individuals are still holding their breath. The question is: are you?

Feeling responsible for remaining functional and knowing people might look to me for guidance, I took stock of my own system and how I was managing the stress. I spent the initial days of the pandemic becoming more and more aware of one thing: my body. I could feel my nervous system cycling at a higher frequency. I became aware of my heart beating and my stomach tightening. A perpetual sense of anticipation settled over me but the typical release that comes after a presentation or a difficult conversation with a colleague never came. As a biofeedback practitioner, I was lucky to have some frame of reference for the nervous system and the way to read my somatic signals. Clearly my body was communicating and encoding a sense of threat: fight or flight. I found myself holding my breath, noticing my shoulders perpetually creeping up, in a bracing hunch. Remember, you teach this to clients: breathe into your belly, slow down your breath, exhale anything that you do not need. Then came the question: did I really believe breathing could help? And the bigger question: Did I actually believe what I had been telling clients for years?

There was literally no rule book on "How to handle a global pandemic." We are seeing the undeniable impact of the trauma and profound loss many have sustained during this time in both the inpatient and outpatient therapy arenas. My accumulated experience in treating individuals has often revealed when more insidious and subtle forms of disruption are neglected the implications can be seismic down the road. Several colleagues of mine have echoed this sentiment through their concise explanation of what can cause trauma: too much, too fast. What comes next is an innate human reflex to stop what is coming towards us. How can "too much" manifest in the mind? That feeling of not thinking straight, not tracking, and being unable to focus. Another variation can involve daydreaming more or zoning out," a cognitive reflex that provides temporary relief. In more severe circumstances, dissociation can become a profound barrier to healing. Unfortunately, for so many, the demands of our lives did not decrease but rather escalated, hence the mismatch between what our body was needing and what our lives demanded.

This is another way to think about how we get stuck internally when our body systems do not have the time or capacity to process what is happening. Its like eating a full meal without the ability to digest it or attempting to drive a car that is completely on empty. The fascinating aspect of this conundrum is whether you pay attention to your body or not, it's still responding to the threat.

So how can we interrupt this cycle? The first step is the willingness to explore how your body may be communicating valuable information about what has happened and may hold the keys to understanding what is now needed. Next comes the careful and deliberate steps in paying attention to what you notice in your breathing, your muscles, your stomach, your heartbeat. This self-curiosity can be extended to cues signaling the emptying of your emotional "gas tank:" irritability, quickness to anger or tears, impatience. Simple breath awareness and diaphragmatic breathing exercises ("belly breathing") can begin the process of nervous system regulation. Education can be another critical gateway to becoming more aware and connected: The latest movement in the field of trauma treatment places its focus on how bodily responses are associated with thoughts and emotions (for further reading: The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel Vanderkolk). When we start paying attention to these somatic/bodily clues, we can begin the journey towards healing.

Destination Health Village Proposed for Fort Tuthill – Flagstaff Business News

Posted: at 1:46 am

NAH reimagines health care with state-of-the-art hospital, ambulatory center and wellness hub in the pines.

Were embarking on an ambitious program to enhance the quality of care we provide, said NAH President and CEO Flo Spyrow. This will not only be the biggest project in Northern Arizona, but likely the biggest project for years to come in all of Arizona, bringing jobs and economic viability as well as amazing health care to citizens of Northern Arizona, she said in a news conference delivered through Zoom.

Chief Administrative Officer Josh Tinkle called it a momentous occasion as NAH began the process of making the vision a reality by submitting its application for zoning modifications to the City of Flagstaff in late April.

You can work in health care your entire career and never have the opportunity to reimagine what health care should be delivered, said Tinkle. What we envision is not only an acute hospital with an ambulatory campus, but really a wellness village thats a destination for all of Northern Arizona. Some of the new features that we expect to see on the platform itself, being the hospital and ambulatory clinic, will be more open spaces, more natural light, more modern infrastructure and technology to take care of all the patients, [with] more respite spaces for families. And then on the broader campus, we expect to see more wellness offerings such as yoga, healthy food options, eventually some residential development over our commercial spaces, etc.

NAH Vice President of Construction and Real Estate Steve Eiss says the project, expected to be approved by the end of the year, will be a huge economic development engine for Flagstaff, starting with the development process.

We are anticipating at peak, 750 to 800 construction workers on site at any given time, he said. That is not inclusive of engineering and architecture staff that we feel will be in the 50 to 60 jobs range. So, were talking about four to five solid years of construction creating not only jobs in that industry, but also dollars to be spent in the Flagstaff community by these workers.

That doesnt include the other 120 acres that will be developed into the future and the construction and businesses that will locate there and begin to contribute to the economic viability and thriving, quite frankly, of Flagstaff, added Spyrow.

Officials say a Health and Wellness Village is a relatively new concept in health care, bringing onto one site clinical and hospital-based health care, outpatient services, rehabilitation, sports medicine, and residential and patient or provider housing. Amenities such as spas, gyms, health food stores and restaurants also could be in the mix as all of the experiences are designed to have a central location for services, and to focus on keeping populations well.

We are developing a healthy lifestyle destination in Flagstaff that will take care of Northern Arizona residents with an emphasis on wellness, innovation, virtual and world-class care, said Tinkle. We will create a gathering place for the community. This will be a sanctuary highly integrated with its natural environment that helps community members relieve stress and engage in healthy lifestyle choices.

NAH officials say the concept for the health village is being influenced by the impact of COVID-19. Through the pandemic, we went through some really tough times with our staff and all the patients that we take care of. The facilities did not meet the needs for all of the communities that we serve in a global pandemic situation, said Tinkle.

He described the challenges and heartbreak doctors, nurses and families faced. Initially for the patients, families could not visit because we did not have appropriate ventilation systems for them to come in and see their loved ones. So, oftentimes, the nurse was the one enabling that final good-bye to the loved one through an iPad as they held their iPad in front of them and watched the loved one pass away on a screen. This is not the way we want to deliver health care in the future, he said. We envision in the new facility, well have better technology that we can get people more integrated in the care delivery and if we ever get in a situation where we cant allow visitors, the technology will be in the room.

HKS Architects, a Phoenix design firm, has been engaged to work on the hospital design. Some of the things well be focusing on and some lessons learned from COVID are specifically centered around single occupancy rooms, making sure that we have that space for our patients and then specifically the HVAC for the building and having some flexibility in that HVAC system to be able to create negative pressure environments and exhaust our buildings more efficiently than we can in our older facilities, said Eiss.

Spyrow says some aspects of the care delivery industry will never be the same. Telemedicine has expanded, virtual care has expanded, and so as we design these facilities, we have an opportunity to connect to more people than we ever have before and to design facilities that facilitate that connection and care close to home for many, many communities across Northern Arizona.

The Health Village also is intended to incorporate cultural values of the region. This is really an opportunity for us to look at who we serve and one of those major populations is the Native American population and really look at how we can bring some of their culture and healing into our buildings and bring the outdoor in so people feel like theyre close to nature, even as theyre sitting in a patient room or maybe an exam room, she said. We intend for this to be really holistic in our approach.

NAH expects to announce the builder for the project in early June. Most likely that contractor will not be located here in the Flagstaff area because of the size and complexity of this project, but we have made a commitment to use, as much as we can, local workers and local businesses as they subcontract work out over the next five years for this project, said Spyrow.

The anticipated Health and Wellness Village, advanced technology and healing environment is expected to help NAH recruit and retain top physicals, nurses and technicians.

Officials had explored options for updating the aging Flagstaff Medical Center, but determined the space was too constrained. We have an inability to grow in any direction outside of having to cannibalize our space, which was looked at early on and it involved so much trouble and rework within the existing facility and would be such an impact to patient care that it was deemed as a project that couldnt be successful for our patients, said Eiss.

As NAH makes the transition from Flagstaff Medical Center, there will be a time when both campuses are operating. Eiss says NAH will be working with the city as it updates its general plan to determine the best use for the FMC property to meet community needs. FBN

Nehi Bali’s Hoslistic Health Courses Land In The UAE – About Her

Posted: February 25, 2021 at 6:49 am

The global health crisis caused by COVID-19 is slowly altering how people manage their physical and mental wellbeing, including an accelerated demand for immunity and holistic wellness. Holistic healing, which considers the whole person - body, mind, spirit and emotions - is certainly not new. However, more people of all ages are embracing alternative coping techniques to combat the pandemic, which has caused panic, stress, depression and anxiety.

As substance abuse, fatigue, sadness and anger are being felt at alarming rates, wellness company Neha Bali has launched in the UAE to help residents cope. Founder Neha Bali, who has over 20 years experience as a practitioner and coach of healing modalities, uses unique healing tools. And they adopt a holistic approach to keep ones mind, body and emotions connected in the spirit of positivity and hope. The natural, non-invasive and safe techniques like meditation, emotional freedom technique, ThetaHealing and therapy and family constellation aim to remove the root cause of all problems and restore balance and a sense of wellbeing.

We all need to stay accountable for taking care of ourselves in any given circumstance. It is absolutely essential to adopt holistic healing methods in our lives to keep our sanity and increase our emotional, mental and physical immunity in Covid-19 times, the well-travelled Bali said. As these methods are non-invasive, safe and holistic in nature they help us increase our resilience and ability to cope with unexpected challenges like the pandemic, job loss, health issues, death, relationship problems, lack of purpose, poverty, anxiety and stress in a calm way without panicking.

The expert, who wants more people to benefit from the message of wellness, added taking up and learning holistic healing methods arms us with skills no one teaches us, and they can help us face life with ease and a vision. She also said by letting go of old beliefs we can start the amazing life we are meant to live.

You have the superpower to create the life that you are meant to live! A life of wonder, purpose and fulfillment, Bali, who has lived in various countries like India, Germany, Russia and the UAE, said.

All therapy sessions and courses, which can benefit groups and individuals, are online so people can attend from the comfort of their home. Neha Bali also offers an initial free 20-minute consultation session to understand clients requirements, as well as personalise and tailor make the therapy sessions. Packages with discounts and offers are available seasonally too.

About Holistic HealingHolistic wellness, renowned to be a well-founded specialty as evidence of the connection between mental, emotional and physical conditions, is one of the fastest growing industries. The World Health Organization estimates that between 65 to 80 percent of the world's population (about 3 billion people) rely on holistic medicine, which also works as a complementary tool to modern medicine, as their primary form of health care. The global harmonising and alternative medicine market size is projected to reach USD 296.3 billion by 2027.

Holistic Child Development, where children are taught vital skills early in life that prevent the development of risk behaviour and underachievement, is also on the rise. It encourages children to learn how to deeply connect with themselves, explore all their intelligences and make choices that are in their highest interest.

Combine Fasting & Holistic Health With This Four-Week Program – mindbodygreen.com

Posted: at 6:49 am

One of the main benefits of fasting has to do with autophagy, which you can think of as your own personal, accelerated, anti-aging treatment. The word autophagy was coined by a biochemist named Christian de Duve in 1963, but we've only recently begun to understand just how much this process affects our health on a daily basis. Autophagy (auto meaning "self" and phage meaning "eat") is a mechanism that jumps into gear during times of fasting where the body starts to gobble up, recycle, or destroy damaged cells and proteins. At first, this may seem like a bad thing, but the ultimate goal of autophagy is to make room for new, healthy cells to grow and take over. It's been described as "a process of cellular housekeeping," and it's absolutely critical for optimal health.

This is especially true when you take into account the onslaught of stressors cells are exposed to in modern life. Intermittent fasting has been shown to improve cellular function, increase the healing of stem cells, and improve resilience against a wide range of stressors, including metabolic, oxidative, traumatic, and proteotoxic stressors (which include things like damaged proteins).

Autophagy is important no matter our age, but it's particularly critical as we get older since aging hinders our ability to clean our old cells and proteins, and all this debris can start to build up. Reductions in autophagy have been linked to a range of diseases. The authors of one study wrote that autophagy's main job is to protect us from anything from infections and cancer to neurodegeneration, accelerated aging, and heart disease. Whenever I talk about fasting to live longer, I'm often met with a lot of raised eyebrows and skeptical looks. But the truth is, until about a decade ago almost all studies on intermittent fasting focused on aging and longevityand most of them concluded that fasting can, in fact, increase life span.

Need an example? One of the first studies on fasting reported that the life span of rats increased by as much as 80% when they were put on a fasting plan where they were given food only every other day. In a study on worms, a fasting diet increased life span by 40%; in another on male mice on an alternate-day fasting program, they observed an increase in longevity.

OK, but rats and worms are not humans. Well, there is also substantial evidence that fasting increases longevity in humans as well. For starters, it's known to prevent many age-related diseases, including the top causes of death. There are many theories as to why fasting has such a positive impact on life span. One has to do with "blue zones," such as the one on the island of Okinawa. The isolated population there typically maintains a regimen of intermittent fasting and has extremely low rates of obesity and diabetes, as well as extreme longevity.

As we already know, extended fasting produces ketones; well, ketones also regulate the expression of specific molecules and proteins that play a known role in aging. A few examples of these include NAD+ and sirtuins. You may have heard of NAD+ because there are a growing number of nutritional supplements said to promote NAD+ and, subsequently, a healthier cellular aging process. How, you ask? NAD+ levels decline as you age, and, as is explained in an article published in Trends in Cellular Biology, that "may be an Achilles' heel, causing defects in nuclear and mitochondrial functions and resulting in many age-associated pathologies."

It's thought that restoring NAD+ levels, especially as they decline with age, may ameliorate age-related issues and counteract age-related diseases. NAD+ does this by supporting cellular energy and helping you maintain healthy DNA, but it also does this by activating sirtuins. I'm at risk of diving too deep into the science of aging, but sirtuins are a class of proteins that occur in all types of living organismseverything from yeast to bacteria to mammals. In humans, sirtuins play a key role in the body's cellular response to stressors, including oxidative stress and DNA damage. Some studies have pointed to the idea that sirtuins could play a direct role in extending life span. The good news is that NAD+ supplementation isn't the only way to increase the level of sirtuins. In fact, physical activity and dietary changesincluding fasting and ketogenic dietshave been shown to increase sirtuins. Even specific compounds, such as curcumin, are being studied for their ability to increase sirtuin levels.

Another longevity pathway that researchers are exploring is mTOR. Increased mTOR is associated with accelerated aging and age-related disease. The mTOR pathway is especially stimulated by protein consumption. Both fasting and fasting-mimicking diets like the ketogenic diet have been shown to be beneficial at balancing mTOR.

Importantly, intermittent fasting has also been shown to stimulate mitophagy, which is essentially just the autophagy of the mitochondria. Finally, fasting has also been shown to inhibit pathways that create proteins, pressing pause on creating new material so that the body can conserve energy and resources while it cleans house. You don't want your cells to always be dividing and replicating because that has been linked with an increase in oxidative stress.Research has also confirmed that when you are constantly snacking, overeating, or living a sedentary lifestyle, these beneficial pathways are left untapped or even suppressed. This is why giving yourself periods of time without food, regardless of the specific protocol, appears to be overwhelmingly beneficial.

Why fusion of modern, alternative medicine is unfeasible – Hindustan Times

Posted: at 6:49 am

Doctors across the country have decried the concept of mixopathy, which refers to the integration of different systems of medicine such as ayurveda, homeopathy, unani, siddha, yoga and naturopathy with allopathy (modern system of medicine).

The debate began when provisions under Section 50 of the National Medical Commission Act, 2020 mandated that educational modules for interface between the modern system of medicine, homeopathy and ayurveda be prepared through joint meetings of the Central Council of Indian Medicine, Central Council of Homeopathy and National Medical Commission. These provisions aim to promote pluralism in medical education.

The National Education Policy, 2020, in its medical education component, lays emphasis on a holistic approach. The government think-tank NITI Aayog is perusing through a variety of reform ideas in the health sector, including aligning traditional and modern approaches for the larger good, for which the Aayog has formed four committees. These committees are in the areas of medical education, clinical practice, public health, medical research and administration.

No common ground

However, this concept of integrating different systems of medicine raises serious questions about its practicability as each medical system has its own unique method of diagnosis, reasoning for causation and protocols for treatment.

The modern medicine system is an internationally recognised system of treatment whereas other systems have regional acceptance and dominance. Just as different regional languages cannot be integrated to make one language, it is similarly not possible to formulate one common system of treatment.

Case in point: How can the anti-microbial concept of modern medicine system be integrated with the tridosha theory of Ayurveda? Or the homeopathic concept, which says dilution increases the potency of a biologically active substance be reconciled with modern pharmacology? The homeopathic principles that substances retain memory on dilution has not stood the scrutiny of biology, chemistry, physics and related sciences. It would be difficult to explain the logic of the yogic concept of alternate nostril breathing (anulom vilom) to a student of modern anatomy and physiology because both nostrils have identical structures?

More research needed

Furthermore, it is not possible to treat one patient with different systems simultaneously. Scientists and clinicians are yet to study drug interactions between medicines from different systems inside the complex human machine, which may be undergoing different metabolic changes due to the stress of trauma, operative procedure or recovery from anaesthetic agents apart from the onslaught of infections and immune factors. All such issues need to be sorted out through scientific research, both in experimental laboratories as well as in clinical practice before any type of integration exercise is put into action, by independent expert groups. Or else, we shall be putting the proverbial cart before the horse.

Unlike the modern system of medicine, the indigenous systems of therapy are not evidence-based. And hence, have no common grounds to meet and mix.

Shortage of qualified doctors has often been cited as one reason for such integration. However, as nearly 80,000 MBBS doctors are now being trained by 642 medical colleges every year such an argument may not be valid anymore. Rather, there may be many unemployed MBBS doctors few years from now. There is no dearth of postgraduate doctors too, 36,192 doctor of medicine (MD) and master of surgery (MS) seats were available for the year 2020-21. Over 44,000 specialist doctors are also being prepared by medical colleges and 60 exclusive post graduate medical institutes every year.

Better infrastructure needed in rural areas

Another argument made in favour of the integration is that doctors of the modern system of medicine are not keen on providing services in remote or underdeveloped areas. However, the non-availability of qualified doctors in rural areas can be attributed to non-availability of other essential services as well. Qualified doctors would love to serve the ailing masses in rural areas if infrastructure and social milieu to practice modern medicine is made available by the government.

Policy makers must work on correcting the basic lacunae in infrastructure first, rather than making stop-gap arrangements to meet the demand and supply gap, if any, by either integrating different systems of treatment or by imparting modern surgical training to ayurveda graduates, as per the CCIM notification, (Amendment Rules 2016) dated November,19 2020.

Let each system of treatment be developed in an individual manner by established scientific research methodology, to make it evidence-based and acceptable to those with scientific temperament. Mixopathy is unscientific, unrealistic, unreasonable, and an onslaught on the uniqueness of individual systems of treatment. Let diversity of different systems prevail and flourish.

Indiana Regenerative Medicine Welcomes Annamarie Salyer to the Practice – Zionsville Monthly Magazine

Posted: at 6:49 am

February 2021

Indiana Regenerative Medicine (IRM), a cutting-edge and innovative clinic specializing in the latest nonsurgical interventions to treat chronic joint pain and other neuropathic pain syndromes, announced that Annamarie Salyer, NP, is joining their team. Annamarie adds her vast professional experience to the IRMs team of Leann Emery (nurse practitioner), Charrissee (registered nurse), Dr. Preston Peachee II (chiropractic physician) and the therapy staff.

Annamarie Salyer is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner who partners closely with Dr. Preston Peachee.She received Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in nursing from Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana.

As a registered nurse, Annamarie worked in intensive care, progressive care and medical/surgical care. As a nurse practitioner, she has worked in internal medicine, functional medicine, acute care and addiction medicine. She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Annamarie and her husband, Jason, reside in Indianapolis. She loves spending time with her two daughters, Josephine and Gabriella, traveling, and being outdoors. Annamarie is currently practicing in the Castleton location and will be seeing patients in IRMs new office when it opens this summer.

Annamarie is a caring and compassionate practitioner who takes the time to individually evaluate and educate her patients, discussing their concerns to deliver the best care for her patients. She is excited to be part of a team that offers regenerative medicine, a holistic approach to the body healing itself with one of the safest methods of recovery for patients with neuropathy.

Fortunately, Annamarie also has great expertise in treating those who suffer chronic knee pain that is otherwise unresponsive to care. Many patients who have osteoarthritis of the knee and are bone on bone respond well to IRMs treatments, including specialized therapy and rehab, laser therapy, hyaluronic acid injections (which lubricate the joint and act like a shock absorber for the bone-on-bone pain), stem cell therapy and now exosome treatments. This protocol has been used to help thousands of patients to find relief from knee pain without cortisone injections, surgery or pain meds. In most cases, the pain can be eliminated or reduced to the point where patients can walk again without pain and return to simple things, like going up and down stairs, cleaning the house and enjoying the grandkids again.

Neuropathy is weakness, numbness and pain, usually in the hands or feet, caused by damage to the peripheral nerves (nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord). It can be caused by diabetes, chemotherapy, physical injury or chemical exposure. The condition can become so severe that patients are unable to walk, develop wounds that dont heal or, even worse, may be facing amputation of toes, the foot or the leg.

Diabetic and other forms of neuropathy are very difficult to treat because they usually do not respond well to care. Many who suffer from neuropathy pain find little or no relief with conventional care, such as physical therapy, pain meds or the drugs used in treatment such as Neurontin and Lyrica. These drugs can sometimes cause side effects which can be worse than the original problem and increasing doses are needed to maintain the benefits, if there are any at all. People struggle with this condition as there is usually no cure, and it will continue to progress with fewer options for relief as time goes on. Eventually, it results in there being no other treatment options.

Neuropathy patients may feel as if they have fallen through the cracks of the health care system and dont know where to turn or who to trust. It is easy to give up or become depressed with chronic pain, but there is hope. IRM uses a combined approach to effectively treat the condition and not just mask the symptoms.

IRM specializes in helping the peripheral nerves to heal, which removes the pain, numbness and tingling, as well as the burning and prickling sensations their patients experience. This helps to halt and even reverse the effects of neuropathy. Most patients respond well to the treatment that holistically treats all facets of the condition and addresses the nutritional component, the physical degeneration of the nerves, poor circulation and lack of blood flow. Additionally, it addresses the physical symptoms, such as poor coordination, falling and wounds not healing properly or slowly.

The IRM clinical team addresses neuropathy by truly treating the source of the problem, which is nerve damage to the smaller nerves, generally accompanied by poor blood flow in the small arteries. This is why most people will lose the hair on their legs, have tight and shiny skin, have discoloration or itching, and eventually develop wounds that do not heal correctly or at all. Many will even develop edema, or swelling to the legs and feet, and will eventually have pain, difficulty walking, and may start to trip, fall or have their legs give out on them.

As IRM improves the circulation to the feet and toes, it restores oxygen to the tiny arteries. This improvement in circulation aids in getting the proper nutrition to the nerves, allowing them to heal.

IRM uses a very specific, innovative therapy to reestablish communication between the toes and the brain, which promotes healing of the nerves, helps to remove the pain and allows the damaged tissues to begin to heal and repair themselves. Once the damaged nerves have adequate oxygen and the proper nutrition to heal, most patients will see relief of their symptoms with specific rehabilitation.

New treatments like this are often not covered by insurance, so IRM is excited that this neuropathy treatment, as well as their knee pain protocols, are covered by most insurances, including Medicare in most cases. They can now help even more people than before.

Neuropathic conditions did not happen overnight,and IRM cant fix it all in one treatment, but with the right steps, relief is possible. Most people will see a positive change after just one treatment. The longer and the more severe the damage, the more intense the treatment will be, but if you want to get better, IRM has a solution for you.

Every patient is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution, so the clinic staff always start with a thorough exam to determine if you are a candidate for care and how they can tailor an individual plan for you. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill that will make neuropathy go away, but if you are willing to get help, Indiana Regenerative Medicine can help you to get better and start enjoying life again!

IRM is currently accepting new neuropathy pain patients as well as knee pain patients, and they look forward to helping those who suffer.

Call (317) 653-4503 or visit indianaregen.com to set up your free consultation and start the road to recovery with Indiana Regenerative Medicine Institute.

BJP deems Rajasthan budget disappointing, ruling Congress says its presented a holistic one – Hindustan Times

Posted: at 6:49 am

The BJP termed the state budget as disappointing claiming that it did not live up to the expectations of the people of Rajasthan whereas ruling Congress leaders said every section has been appropriately focused in the budget presented by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday.

BJP state president Satish Poonia said the budget is not more than a cut and paste job as new schemes have been announced just like past budgets, which hardly get realised on the ground.

"There is a huge contrast in announcements and their realisation. The budget is just like a cut, copy and paste job. It is a cosmetic budget, which has a good face but intentions are not good," Poonia said.

He said that the budget did not mention anything about regularisation of contractual workers and protesting unemployed youth. Overall, the budget has failed to live up to the expectations of people, he added.

Leader of Opposition Gulab Chand Kataria said old announcements made in previous budgets for his own constituency have not even started and new ones have been announced.

"It has become their hobby to make announcements. They are only misleading people as they do not have a proper budget. This budget is nothing more than a bundle of lies," Kataria said in a press conference.

On the other hand, Congress leaders have termed it a holistic budget, which has taken care of all sections of the society.

Medical and Health Minister Raghu Sharma praised the budget, saying that it is an unprecedented one for overall development. He said the budget dedicated to health will fulfill the dream of a healthy Rajasthan.

Sharma said several innovations in medicine and health have been announced in the budget. We will present a unique example in the country by bringing a bill in the Assembly to provide Right to Health to All.

He described the Universal Health Care scheme as unprecedented from the point of view of health rejuvenation at a cost of 3,500 crore from the upcoming financial year. Under this scheme, each family of the state will get the benefit of medical insurance scheme of 5 lakh.

Congress state president Govind Singh Dotasra said that a commendable budget has been presented by CM Gehlot, which is all-inclusive and development oriented.

To take forward the state on the path of progress, announcements have been made in the budget keeping the public interest paramount, he said in a statement.

Cannabis Brand Cookies Enters The CBD And Mushroom Medicine Game With Caps Line – Forbes

Posted: at 6:49 am

The healing power of plantsfrom cannabinoids CBD, CBG, and CBN, to mushrooms Lions Mane, Reishi, Shiitake, and Cordyceps are the focal-point of the new Cookies CBD capsule line called Caps.

Caps marks Cookies first foray into the CBD industry. Founded in 2012 in the Bay Area of Northern California by the legendary duo of grower Jigga and rapper Berner, Cookies has grown its clout and cannabis brand to reach nearly every legal marketplace in the country. Today, Cookies stores can be found across California as well as in Denver, Oklahoma, Michigan, and even internationally, in Tel Aviv and Barcelona.

Humans have used mushrooms as food and medicine for centuries, but more recently, theresbeen wide spread stigma around mushrooms as medicine, says a Cookies representative. Thats why many who may be intrigued dont know where to start or who to trust.

Bed Head is one of the offerings from the new Caps line made by cannabis brand Cookies.

Your initial question may be do these contain psychedelic mushrooms? The answer is, not yet. Caps hopes to include psilocybin mushrooms, otherwise known as magic mushrooms, in its proprietary blends once they become legal and accessible to the wider marketplace. This hinges on legalization and decriminalization. California is inching closer than ever before to this reality with SB 519, a bill that would legalize psychedelic drugs like ketamine, MDMA, psilocybin, and LSD in the state.

100%that is our hope, anyway, says a representative of the Cookies team. Of course, it comes down to legislation, but we launched with CBD, are expanding into THC, and hope to create a psilocybin product when the time comes. Our team has been experimenting with plant medicine for years, and we see so much value in what mushrooms can do for consumers health and wellness, so it was only natural to go this route.

The Caps offering, as it stands today, is filled with legal mushrooms, cannabinoids, and plant-derived terpenes. The bottles cost $55 for 30 capsules and are available nationwide.

3 keys to quality, head-to-toe… – Bothell-Kenmore Reporter

Posted: at 6:49 am

As a family medicine physician, Dr. Ashu Verma is a generalist and thats the way she likes it.

I like the variety of medical issues I can see in one day. From physicals and preventive care to management of depression and anxiety. Simple procedures like laceration repairs and mole removals, acute care like diagnosing appendicitis or treating acute back pain, or managing chronic conditions like diabetes, cholesterol or blood pressure. Its different every hour! says Dr. Verma, who practices Family Medicine at Pacific Medical Centers (PacMed) Canyon Park.

Not only does family medicine give her variety, it also gives her a stronger bond with patients.

Im grateful that families entrust me in their care for the long term, and I really enjoy building relationships from age five and up, she says. Holistic health means taking care of the full person and establishing a long-term relationship. I manage my patients healthcare from head to toe so nothing gets missed, and help ensure continuity of care, she says.

Looking for connections

Dr. Verma may refer you to a specialist for your heart, your skin or a muscle strain, but shell continue to coordinate your care and look for connections between issues. You are more than just a collection of bones and organs, and a generalists view is often the best way to see how all the parts interconnect. It takes time and patience to develop that bond with patients, but thats what Dr. Verma is good at.

I hope after their visit with me that patients feel, first and foremost, that they were heard. That their concerns and issues were listened to in a compassionate way. And hopefully theyll walk away feeling that Im part of their team in supporting their health.

3 keys to quality primary care

Dr. Verma believes physicians need three things to give patients quality healthcare:

Someone who combines all these skills creates a comfortable environment where both doctor and patient are working towards the same goal. A physician who takes the time, is compassionate and has up-to-date medical knowledge helps patients feel theres someone on their side thats supporting their healthcare concerns.

Dr. Verma is accepting new patients at Pacific Medical Centers (PacMed) Canyon Park, 1909 214th St. SE, in Bothell. Make an appointment by calling 425-412-7200 or booking online.
