Copy of "MIRACLE" DRUG LOW DOSE NALTREXONE HELPS MS, CANCER, & AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES, AIDS AND MORE!
 
02:28
Low Dose Naltrexone is a "miracle" drug that is saving the lives of so many with immune diseases. Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is a form of Naltrexone, a drug used to treat drug and alcohol addiction. Dr. Ian Zagon, a brilliant researcher at Penn State, made the discovery that LDN in lower doses was a remarkable treatment for diseases that invoke a hyperactive immune response. LDN helps to quiet the system down. LDN boosts the body's endorphin levels in the brain. It was found that those who suffer from numerous, immune deficiency disease have low endorphin levels. These naturally produced brain chemicals are released by the body in times of stress or to induce mood elevations. Every cell of the immune system has receptors for these agents. Studies with rats and humans has shown cancer cells to be inhibited by LDN. Many disorders such as MS, cancer, AIDS, fibromyalgia, IBS, chronic fatigue, ALS, autism, etc. are helped by LDN. There are approximately 50 diseases that can be helped by LDN. LDN must be filled by a compounding pharmacy in a non-time release formula. It is highly recommended that one of the pharmacies on lowdosenaltrexone.org fill the prescription. My prescription is filled at Skip's Pharmacy. LDN is safe, effective, non addictive, virtually no side effects, and inexpensive, about $1.00 a day. The reason that most, including doctors, know nothing about it is because the patent has expired and the drug industry cannot make hugh profits. Therefore, they will not spend the necessary funds to do studies or promote the drug. Nevertheless, for those of us who take this miracle drug, it is a lifesaver. The blonde lady in the video, Lori, came to my hometown from Florida and she happened to read my story about LDN in our local newspaper. Her brother died from MS at age 42 and she had MS and was going downhill fast. She took the story back home to her doctor and at first, he would not prescribe it to her. But she persisted and he finally gave her a prescription. Now, she can walk with the aid of a walker and she can use her hands again. My father-in-law had 2 precancerous lesions on his pancreas, which the surgeon stated that he must have immediate surgery, as they would turn into cancer. We said, no way. He was placed on LDN, watches his diet, takes supplements, and digestive enzymes. This has been over 3 years, he has had 3 mri's, and his lesions are shrinking and almost gone. This year, 2012 the doctor told him that he didn't need anymore mri's. Another LDN miracle! For nearly 8 years, I have been on LDN for numerous health issues. I only take LDN and not the standard, black-box warning drugs that were prescribed to me. I too am doing just fine! Check out http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/ and join the LDN support group at Yahoo. Ask others on the site who will prescribe LDN in your town, as this drug may save your life or the life of a loved one! There is a free book entitled, Those Who Suffer Much Know Much that can be read online. Any one interested in making donations to LDN research may contact the Penn State's donor program. Who knows what other remarkable discoveries are waiting to be discovered by these wonderful scientists with your help! Any LDN group would welcome your support too!

PHAR10400 University of Manchester - Alcohol Misuse by Group 6

Group Members: Bianca, Fatema, Kypros, Lewis, Matthew and Sirmad. Pharmacists are trained healthcare professionals, pharmacies are also conveniently located, so pharmacy has an important role in the public for dealing with one of the biggest public health challenges in UK- alcohol misuse. What pharmacists can do to reduce the consumption of alcohol is about brief interventions. There are four main types of brief interventions- alcohol education, simple advice, simple advice plus brief counselling and continued monitoring.(Rich, 2015)Also community pharmacists have good access with different professions and communities so they are prepared to provide alcohol support.(Pharmaceutical Journal, 2008) Music: "String Jam" by Cory Gray From the Free Music Archive CC BY NC References: 1.

Tangled up in Blue: The Complexity of Chronic Pain
 
01:37:55
Chronic pain constitutes a serious health, social and economic issue worldwide. A 2011 Institute of Medicine Report noted that more than 100 million Americans meet the criteria for a chronic pain diagnosis, which leads to more than 500 billion dollars in direct and indirect medical costs annually. Beyond the numbers, chronic pain is an enormous burden on quality of life for the individual. Moreover, treatment options are often characterized by an incomplete efficacy and/or dose limiting side effects. Neuroscience can contribute to better understanding the mechanisms that turn acute pain into chronic pain, assessing the long-term impact that chronic pain has on the brain, and the benefits and risks of various treatment options. This event reports on recent findings from neuroscience and medicine that are influencing views on pain management and helping guide decisions on treatments, better approaches to educating health professionals, and in policy making.
