The skin condition called Acanthosis Nigricans fortunately is uncommon, but pseudo Acanthosis Nigricans unfortunately isn't. If you were formally schooled in Latin, you know exactly what I'm talking about. But if you weren't, stay tuned! Let's start with what Acanthosis Nigricans, which I'm going to refer to as AN in this episode. Start with what it looks like, which'll then make you want to know more. And just to make it a little more interesting, the real Acanthosis Nigricans and faux Acanthosis Nigricans, which is the more common Pseudo Acanthosis Nigricans, look essentially identical.
Since Acanthosis just means a thickening or overgrowth of the upper layer of your skin and Nigricans really means dark or black, if we put this together its really a descriptive term from which you expect to see a dark overgrowth or thickening of your skin. Acanthosis Nigricans appears as tan to dark brown velvety surfaced plaques with parallel lines which when even deeper look like velvety parallel ribs like the nap of carpeting. You usually get it on the parts of the body where skin tends to rub against skin,.
Such as underarms, neck and upper inner thighs, but it can occur in other areas as well. Because these brown, raised, unattractive patches and plaques don't itch or burn or in any other way bother you except cosmetically, which is personally important and a real quality of life issue, the medical importance of Acanthosis Nigricans is why it occurs and whether it reflects something important internally. Most cases of Acanthosis Nigricans are not true Acanthosis Nigricans, but fortunately the Pseudo form which occurs from being overweight. The real Acanthosis Nigricans comes from certain endocrine diseases.
Such as diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, other less common hormonal imbalances, But and most importantly, Acanthosis Nigricans can be a reflection of an internal cancer which most commonly are malignancies of the gastrointestinal tract, uterus and sometimes even the lung, prostate, breast or ovary. And last there are some people who have Acanthosis Nigricans with no apparent associated disease and are not overweight. For the first group whose Acanthosis is associated with obesity, endocrine problems or cancers, treating the underlying condition will result in a remarkable improvement of the Acanthosis, but what about those people who fortunately don't.
How to Prevent Neck Pain Massage Monday 207
Hi everyone. This is Yasuko and it's time for Massage Monday. When you have a neck pain, neck massage is awesome. But what if you can prevent your neck pain This week I'm going to share a really neat technique that I just learned to prevent the neck pain. So one of the major causes of neck pain is a bad posture. Did you know that when you push your head forward by 1 inch, it adds 10 extra pounds on your skinny neck That's a lot of weight because your head is already heavy. In order to keep your head up straight.
And not moving forward, this is what you do. You push your tongue against the back of the upper teeth and part of the upper jaw. And as you do this, you will notice the front neck muscles get slightly tight. While these muscles are tightened, it's very hard to push your head forward. You can try this with and without pushing your tongue against the upper roof of your mouth and back of your teeth. I think this technique works because I just drove from California to Arizona and I drove.
Flaxseed Oil Why You Should Never Eat Flaxseed Oil VitaLife Show Episode 60
Welcome to the Vitalife show. I'm doctor Janine Bowring and today's topic is flaxseed oil and is this something that's healthy that we should be taking. Well my personal opinion is that flaxseed oil is not a healthy supplement to be taking in the daily diet and there are few reasons for this actually the research is supporting my viewpoint on this showing that people that are supplementing with flaxseed oil actually have a higher risk prostate cancer and my question is what other types of cancers are actually heightening the risk.
By taking flaxseed oil now one of the problems with flaxseed oil you know it is a vegetarian source for the important omega 3's the conversion of flaxseed oil into the important DHA and EPA is not that great so in women it tends to be a little bit better because of our natural estrogen but really its only 21 percent conversion of ALA which is the alphaLinolenic acid into EPA and only nine percent conversion into DHA which is the important omega3 for a brain and spinal cord as well for our vision.
So I mean that's really concerning and then it's even lower so imagine 8 percent conversion ALA from flaxseeds into EPA and only zero to four percent conversion into DHA now again I always recommend the better way to go to get our omega 3's is of course a fish oil supplement and it always needs to be a high quality fish oil supplement that is contaminant free which isn't guaranteed in all fish oil supplements so that is something you really have to look into but also higher in the DHA because as humans we tend to be more deficient in.
The DHA and this is something that needs to be again supplemented on a daily basis so the best fish oil supplement on the market VitaFish Oil higher in the DHA less on the EPA but there's still a little bit in there which is very important as our antiinflammatory effects but again higher in the DHA for the brain and spinal cord as well as for memory DHA actually concentrates at the back of the eye which is really important for not only treating and preventing vision loss and macular degeneration but also to keep the moisture in our eyes which a lot.
Of people don't realize so when they start supplementing with something like the VitaFish Oil what they notices that the moisture comes back to the eyes evision improves again I encourage you to look at the VitaFish Oil on vitatree again easy to take small orange capsules no fishy taste kids absolutely love them and and it's really important that kids are actually supplementing with the VitaFish Oil on a daily basis because again it's so important as a natural antiinflammatory helps to keep their immune system strong but more importantly again for their brain and cognitive abilities so things.

Patient Dies 1 Day After Gynecologist Perforated Colon During Laparoscopy NY Attorney Explains
She lost her life all because her gynecologist failed to recognize that he perforated her colon during the course of a laparoscopy. Want to know what this is about Come join me for a moment as I share with you this remarkable story. Hi, I'm Gerry Oginski. I'm a New York medical malpractice and personal injury trial lawyer practicing law here in the state of New York. She was going to have a laparoscopic GYN procedure. The doctor told her this was a simple procedure. She'd be in and out shortly. You know what.
She went ahead and had the procedure. She trusted her gynecologist. During the course of the laparoscopy the doctor perforated, made a hole in her colon, but the tragic reality was, he failed to recognize it. Now he does the procedure, he finishes it, he closes her up, sends her off to recovery and then after a couple of hours she goes home. A few hours later, at night, the doctor calls the patients and says, How are you doing. The patient says, I'm not feeling well. My abdomen feels really strange.
He says. Don't worry about it. It's from all the air that we put into your belly in order for me to see during the course of this laparoscopic surgery. Well guess what happened During the course of the night she got worse and worse to the point where her son found her dead on the floor in the morning. They tried to revive her. It was no good. No use. Now only on autopsy when a doctor did a clinical examination of what happened to her inside to look to determine what was the cause of death why did you die.
After the surgery only one day, within 24 hours. It turns out that the medical examiner was able to find that the colon which was near where he was operating had been perforated. As a result of that everything from within the colon was leaking out. She suffered a massive infection that spread throughout her body, that's known as sepsis, and that overwhelmed her and caused her to die that morning. During the course of my question and answer session, known as a deposition, during the course of the lawsuit I got the doctor to.
Acknowledge and admit that during the laparoscopy he has an obligation to make sure that there are no organs nearby, adjacent have suffered any type of injury before he closes the patient up. This doctor could not explain to me how this perforation occurred and how he'd missed it during the course of this procedure. The only answer is that he violated the basic standards of surgical and medical care, and that if he was careful he would have recognized the fact that this patient suffered an intraoperative injury to her colon. Had he recognized it.
At that time he could've called in a general surgeon to come in and try and fix that problem. If it were a minor problem he simply would've oversewn it. If it was a significant problem then now the surgeon would have cut off the ends of the offending injury, connected the two ends together that's known as an endtoend anastomosis, and now this patient would be alive today. Why do I share this great information with you I share it with you just to give you an insight and an understanding of one case.
Where I was able to help the surviving family obtain compensation for the loss of their mother as a result of a doctor's incompetence and carelessness. I realize you've got questions or concerns about your own particular matter. Well, if your matter did happen here in the state of New York, and you've got legal questions what I encourage you to do is pick up the phone and call me. I can answer your legal questions. You know, this is something I do every single day and I'd love to chat with you. You can.
