Probiotics Improve Cognition for Fibromyalgia

Posted by TyH Team on 8/30/2018 to Fibromyalgia
Can a probiotic help you think if you have fibromyalgia, a disorder known for its cognitive issues? Perhaps so says a new study.

As probiotics continue to gain their deserved recognition in helping to alleviate and mitigate various issues originating in the GI tract, they are now also being considered for therapeutic use for a range of other conditions. It appears that this enteric system with a "brain" of its own has more influence over brain processes – which include thinking – than previously believed. For instance much of our neurotransmitters are manufactured in the GI tract. This fact alone means your GI health is linked to the health of your brain and nervous system.

With this knowledge in mind, a team of researchers in Spain hypothesized that fibromyalgia (FM) may benefit from probiotics, stating their use "might be a new treatment that could improve the physical, psychological and cognitive state in FM."

Molly tells us why she wanted to win this book...

I would like a copy of this book because I’m always interested in new and/or pertinent information about Fibromyalgia as my three sisters and I have this condition, in varying degrees and in similar but varied ways. The book would benefit all four of us as we regularly share information about this topic and others.
...and she won! Congratulations!

While the thought of cancer is a scary one, ignoring the risk is hazardous to your health! Best to take the wise advice of applying an ounce of prevention as liver cancer is preventable says Dr. Xu, one of the study authors of this latest health concern.  
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) raised the red flag on liver cancer in their July 2018 published review. Their report shows an alarming increase in liver cancer mortality from 2000 to 2016. Men had a 43% increase, women 40%. For men, their risk still remains higher as statistically their overall numbers are 2 to 2.5 times that of women.

Breathing Exercises ‘Real and Effective’ for Fibromyalgia

Peaceful CanyonJust breathe...
A new study from the April 2018 Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine reports breathing exercises produce "relevant benefits" on pain tolerance thresholds in a group of fibromyalgia (FM) patients. In layman's terms, doctors put pressure on their tender points at the start of the study, measuring how much pressure pain could be tolerated. The patients were split into 2 groups; one group performed the breathing exercises and the other group did not.

What's so special about Mom? Gloria tells us...

Mother’s Day is very special to me.  Mother taught me so much. Two words always come to mind and they are respect and consideration.  These words have been my mantra.  

Being respectful and considerate to people, places and things can have a great effect on one’s life.  It makes all the difference in the world.  The rewards are endless.

All Mothers deserve a place in sainthood.   May God bless.
