The best place to get special offers! t's free as well! https://barbaragrubbs.mykajabi.com/p/vips-get-it-first Let's stay connected! Let me know what you want to learn from me ! Please visit http://www.SeekingSpoons.com for autoimmune related info and the rest of this Plaquenil blog. www.spoonmeter.com has the spoon meter tool for spoonies. Plaquenil was originally developed in the 1940's and used most often for treating or preventing malaria, which is spread by mosquitoes and can cause fever, chills, and a flu like illness. You still may hear Plaquenil being referred to as an antimalarial drug but nowadays it is most often known for treating certain autoimmune diseases, especially the connective tissue diseases such as lupus, RA, Sjogren’s syndrome, and scleroderma. It also treats other inflammatory and dermatological conditions so many people are on it! Plaquenil belongs to a class of medications known as DMARDs. That’s D M A R Ds and it stands for Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs. They are considered "disease modifying" because studies have indicated that they decrease pain, swelling, and joint damage and reduce the severity of long-term disability related to some of these diseases.  There are two other DMARDs besides Plaquenil but they are associated with more or worse side effects so they are not used as often. Plaquenil seems to be a good baseline drug to start when first diagnosed with inflammatory connective tissue disease and one that many people will probably stay on for continued disease management. It won't prevent the disease from progressing but it should help slow it down. It also seems to be good at restraining the immune system without increasing the odds for infection. That's a strong plus for Plaquenil since many other drugs that work on the immune system also weaken it and can thereby increase the risk for infection substantially. Plaquenil is a slow acting drug. It can take up to 6 months for full effectiveness. So give it time. Most people, however, notice some improvement after about two months. It’s thought to suppress the overly active immune responses that occur with autoimmune conditions but no one seems to be sure how it does this. I found a long list of symptoms that Plaquenil has been associated with relieving. Let me just sum them up for you by saying that Plaquenil can help reduce the incidence and severity of symptoms related to the autoimmune condition it's treating. Many people find that it helps with pain and joint mobility specifically. In fact, I’ve heard a number of people say that they didn’t realize just how much Plaquenil was helping them until they had to come off of it for some reason and all their symptoms and pain returned or worsened. That’s all I’m going to share in this video but if you are on or considering Plaquenil please go to seekingspoons.com for more very important information that you need to know about it. Also, if you are a spoonie i hope you’ll look on FB for the private seeking spoons support group. That’s all I have for now, until next time I wish you all 5 spoon days!

Disease Modifying Anti Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDS) | Third Age
 
02:43
Disease Modifying Anti Rheumatic Drugs, or DMARDs, are a common treatment option for Rheumatoid Arthritis patients. Once considered a "last resort" for the treatment of RA, DMARDs are now the primary method of early RA treatment as they have since proven to halt disease progression before the onset of permanent damage. Though it may take a month or more before the medication begins to work, DMARDs suppress the immune system that is under attack by RA, and alleviates the inflammation causing the pain and swelling symptoms of the disease. DMARDs can also slow the progression of RA, prevent permanent bone damage, and even push the disease into remission. Methotrexate, also known as Rheumatrex and Trexall, is the most commonly prescribed DMARD for the treatment of RA. Other DMARDs commonly prescribed for RA treatment include Leflunomide (Arava), Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil), and Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine). Side effects of DMARDs may include liver damage, lung infection, and eye damage. Always be sure to talk to your doctor about any changes in your body while taking DMARDs to allow for proper testing and careful monitoring of the medicine's effects.

7 Treatment Options for Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
 
06:38
7 Treatment Options for Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis 1. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) Upon receiving a juvenile rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis, many patients will be prescribed medications to help them cope with the often painful condition. The first and most accessible type of medication prescribed to these individuals is nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, otherwise known as NSAIDs. As the name suggests, NSAIDs are designed to alleviate the symptoms associated with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation, in this case of the joints. Many NSAIDs are available over the counter, meaning they don’t even require a prescription. Examples include ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve). Side effects, which are generally minimal, include nausea and issues with the liver. 2. Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) Should a young patient dealing with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis require something more powerful to combat the pain associated with this condition, their family doctor may prescribe disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, or DMARDs. Examples of DMARDs include methotrexate (Trexall) and sulfasalazine (Azulfidine). Sometimes a physician will encourage their patient to take DMARDs in addition to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. And while DMARDs are generally more potent than NSAIDs, the side effects are fairly similar: upset stomach and, should they be taken in excess, liver issues. 3. Tumor necrosis factor blockers (TNFs) Tumor necrosis factor blockers are often prescribed by doctors to patients suffering from the effects of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. That’s because TNFs can effectively restrict many of the symptoms associated with the condition, from stiffness in the morning hours to the late-day pain of swollen joints. Unfortunately, tumor necrosis factor blockers have more significant side effects than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which can cause nausea in some patients. Unlike NSAIDs, TNFs increase the chance that a patient will suffer from even more substantial health problems, including cancers like lymphoma. For this reason, doctors may not prescribe TNFs unless the case of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is considered particularly serious and painful. 4. Immune system suppressants You could hardly blame someone for wondering why on earth a physician would prescribe medications designed to actually suppress the activity of a person’s immune system if they’re fighting a painful condition like juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. But there’s a good reason physicians turn to these types of medication: because they can effectively limit the chance that the immune system of a juvenile rheumatoid arthritis patient will attack healthy cells and intensify the condition. There are a number of prevalent immune system suppressants, including abatacept (Orencia), rituximab (Rituxin), anakinra (Kineret) and tocilizumab (Actemra). Like TNFs, they do come with some significant potential side effects, including general infection to cancer. 5. Corticosteroids A far more potent way to counteract the symptoms of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis involves using corticosteroid medications, such as prednisone. Corticosteroids are often prescribed by a doctor while their patient waits for disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs to take effect. Should corticosteroid medications be prescribed, chances are they will be in use for only a short time. This is because these drugs have been shown to cause growth difficulties and increase the chances of infection. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis patients using corticosteroids will receive these drugs orallyy or through an injection into a problematic joint. 6. Physical therapy Many older adults struggling with rheumatoid arthritis find that physical therapy can help in alleviating joint and muscle pain. The situation is no different for those dealing with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, which affects children under age 17 — physical therapists and occupational therapists have a variety of exercises that can improve range of motion, enhance muscle tone, and help young patients overcome restricted flexibility and reduce pain and swelling. Additionally, a physical therapist or occupational therapist may provide a child with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis with protective equipment or exercise equipment that can help them build strength when at home; for example, joint supports and splints can help protect painful joints and improve overall functionality.

Frankincense: The Mind-Blowing Uses of This Ancient Oil For Cancer, Anxiety and Arthritis
 
05:32
Frankincense: The Mind-Blowing Uses of This Ancient Oil For Cancer, Anxiety and Arthritis Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11 The traditional medicine has used frankincense oil in the treatments of various ailments for millennia. It has been known since Biblical times due to its antiseptic, anti-cancer, expectorant, and anti-neurotic properties. It contains boswellic acids which give it potent anti-inflammatory properties and make it beneficial in the case of almost every sickness or disease. This oil can boost the health in numerous different ways, and we present the 5 most important ones: 1. Relieves Arthritic Pain. This oil has powerful anti-inflammatory properties which inhibit the production of the main inflammatory molecules related to conditions such as arthritis, and it can also help to protect from a breakdown of cartilage tissue. The initial two pillars of Ayurveda (the 5- millennia old healing system of ancient India) depict the anti-arthritic activity of frankincense extracts. While non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) lead to side effects such as accelerated joint damage, a raised risk of heart failure and gastrointestinal damage, experts have found that the boswellic acids in frankincense can provide the same effects but not cause any adverse effects. To soothe the symptoms of arthritis, apply 2-3 drops topically to the painful area of pain. You can also add 10 drops to a warm bath and thus alleviate the pain in the joints and muscles. Note that you should dilute it with some other carrier oil in the case of sensitive skin. 2. Relieves Gastrointestinal Discomfort. It effectively relieves digestive distress like pain, gas, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome. According to a study published in the European Journal of Medical Research, its effects in the treatment of the symptoms of ulcerative colitis are impressive. Namely, the intake of 350 milligrams of frankincense oil three times daily for 6 weeks induced remission in 80 percent of patients. Scientists claim that it is similar to sulfasalazine, which is a common chemical drug in the treatment of irritable bowel disease. It boosts the function of the digestive system and accelerates the digestion of food. 3. Supports the Respiratory System. This oil has been traditionally used in baths, massages, and steam inhalations, as a natural remedy for respiratory conditions like coughs, bronchitis, and asthma. The European Journal of Medical Research published a study in which patients with chronic bronchial asthma were treated with 300 milligrams of frankincense three times daily for 6 weeks. Afterward, even 70 percent of patients had a significant improvement of physical symptoms of asthma, including the number of attacks, difficulty breathing, and the hissing lung sound. It, therefore, provides amazing effects in the case of bronchial asthma. 4. Fights Cancer and Relieves Chemotherapy Side Effects. Frankincense oil successfully destroys cells of certain types of cancer, like colon, prostate, breast, brain, pancreatic, and stomach cancers. Studies have shown that it activates genes which lead to cell cycle arrest, cell growth suppression and apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells. Moreover, this oil makes a difference between cancerous and healthy cells, according to a study which found that frankincense oil-suppressed cell viability in cancer cells of the bladder does not lead to the breakdown of DNA, which is a hallmark of apoptosis. It prevents inflammation, strengthens the immune system, and causes the proliferation of white blood cells. 5. A Natural Oral Hygiene Product. Frankincense oil has potent antiseptic properties which make it a perfect oral hygiene tool. You can add a few drops to your toothpaste or simply rub them into the gums to prevent dental health issues such as cavities, infections, tooth decay, or bad breath. Scientists have confirmed that its anti-inflammatory effects prevent the plaque-induced gingivitis, which is a gum disease manifested by swellings, irritations, and redness. Yet, this potent oil can be used in various other cases, in the fight against infections, to treat skin issues, scars, treat anxiety, and much more. Note that for topical use, you should always use organic, 100 percent pure one. We also advise you to consult your doctor before you start any treatment with this oil. ============================================== frankincense ,home remedies ,essential oils ,cancer treatment ,cure for cancer ,frankincense essential oil ,frankincense oil ,natural remedies ,natural health ,anti aging ,healthy living ,frankincense uses ,frankincense essential oil uses ,frankincense oil benefits ,natural cures ,natural treatment ,myrrh essential oil ,frankincense oil uses https://youtu.be/DM1c013bcgc Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11

What is Methotrexate?
 
03:27
Methotrexate is a type of medicine called a cytotoxic antimetabolite. It is used in the management of active rheumatoid arthritis in adult patients and severe forms of psoriasis vulgaris, particularly of the plaque type. It is also used in the treatment of some cancers such as acute leukaemia and carcinoma. Methotrexate is also available under various brands, such as Matrex and Trexall. In rheumatoid arthritis, it is thought that methotrexate suppresses excess activity of the immune system. The immune system is involved in the inflammatory response, so this in turn reduces inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis. In cancer, methotrexate works by inhibiting the production of an acid essential for the synthesis of new genetic material. Due to this cells are unable to divide, in turn inhibiting cancer cell growth and killing it. In psoriasis, methotrexate also slows down the production of cells, preventing the excessive scale and plaque growth seen in individuals with psoriasis. If you would like to find out more visit: http://www.lynchspharmacy.com/medicine/methotrexate-tablets http://www.lynchspharmacy.com You can also visit Lynch's Pharmacy in Broadale, Maryborough Hill, Cork.

* Mistake at around 7:30: Said Chron's instead of Ulcerative Colitis Welcome to LY Med, where I go over everything you need to know for the USMLE STEP 1, with new videos every day. Follow along with First Aid, or with my notes which can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/m55dzy5jjuahmav/AABZGpqvdSytIuEmxIjyt5V0a?dl=0 This video is going to be on some more intestinal pathology! Here, we will talk about a group of diseases called inflammatory bowel disease. The two major subtypes that you need to know is Chron's disease and ulcerative colitis. While no one is sure what exactly causes IBD, it seems to have an autoimmune component, as well as environmental factors and bacterial factors. Whatever the case may be, you need to know the two and how to differentiate the two. Ulcerative colitis: this is a continuous inflammation that starts at the rectum and moves up the colon. Chron's skips around, causing skip lesions but most commonly affects the terminal ileum. This can lead to b12 deficiency and megaloblastic anemia! Because of this difference in location, UC more commonly causes bloody diarrhea, LLQ pain and can be resected to cure the disease. The two also differ due to the nature of inflammation. UC usually involves the mucosa and submucosa. Chron's is usually transmural. In UC, due to it's superficial nature, it can affect the haustra and lead to straight pipe on imaging, ulcers and pseudopolyps. In Chron's due to it's transmural inflammation it can lead to fistulas and strictures, as well as perianal disease. Now just a quick run down. There are extra-GIT manifestations of IBD. These include things like pyoderma gangrenosum, erythema nodosum, uveitis, aphthous ulcers, and ARTHRITIS! Never forget IBD is associated with HLA-B27 arthropathies! Unique complications to UC include primary sclerosing cholangitis. The main lab finding is this is that it's P-ANCA positive. Unique complications seen in Chron's is calcium oxalate stones. Pharmacology includes things to suppress immune response. This includes corticosteroids, MABs against TNF-a, antibiotics and drugs like sulfasalazine.

What Triggers Psoriasis Part 2 - What Triggers Psoriasis Flare Ups
 
02:19
http://oaksmail.com/psoriasis - Discover Unknown Tips to Eliminate Psoriasis Forever! What Triggers Psoriasis Part 2 - What Triggers Psoriasis Flare Ups This video forms part of a full video series on understanding psoriasis. There have been many breakthroughs in the last decade of understanding how psoriasis might develop and it's treatment. But why does it occur? Psoriasis is caused by many factors and is a complex disease. There is no single cause known for psoriasis, clearly genetics, environmental factors and the immune system play key roles in the cause of this disease. Psoriasis has a very strong genetic bond, and complex numerous genes will require environmental triggers to start psoriasis. There are numerous ideas why psoriasis occurs in certain people, but no one has been able to figure out the exact cause. Currently we understand, that there are several major steps in the process, and that the immune system plays a important role. For a long time the theory has been - 1) With psoriasis the skin cells growth is more rapid 2) Skin cells separate a lot faster than skin cells normally. The number of cells multiplying is doubled, in turn this leads to scaling skin and the thickening of skin. 3) The immune system is vital to the development of psoriasis. Essentially the thick red and scaly changes within the skin are a reaction to a incorrect signal sent from the immune system to the skin. Therefore the inflamed plaques of psoriasis are created from a series of abnormal reactions in the skin. The Immune System The immune system is the front line defense from foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, and foreign substances called antigens that guards our body. A chance clinical observation found an improvement in psoriasis symptoms in patients treated with cyclosporine for arthritis. At the time cyclosporine was not being used for the patient's with psoriasis. However the unexpected improvement opened the door to using cyclosporine for psoriasis, and to a new understandings about the causes of psoriasis. Cyclosporine is a drug essential to prevent the rejection of transplanted organs. It works by suppressing the immune system, as a result that leads to improvements in psoriasis. This showed a link between the immune system and psoriasis. Now there is a much clearer understanding of the exact way psoriasis starts, providing scientists with the possibility of creating new medications that can target essentially the immune system and eventually leading to use new medicines to treat this disease. Immunology for Everyone A key part in the immune system is a cell group called white blood cells, these help defend the body against foreign substances and micro-organisms. A particular type of white blood cell that is understood to be of crucial significance in causing psoriasis is the T lymphocyte. The T lymphocytes are very "smart" cells because they have amazing memories. In fact, once they are exposed to a foreign substance, they remember it forever. With continued exposures, the T lymphocytes they will recognise the substance and multiply to attack it. Hence, they are known as memory T cells. Triggers Whilst psoriasis has a genetic component, environmental issues can also play a key part in the out come of disease. There are many such factors that will trigger the onset of psoriasis or aggravate it in someone already affected. These include: . stress . skin injury (Koebner phenomenon) . medications . climate . infection . smoking Want to learn more about what triggers psoriasis?

Cosmelite Cream Full Review in hindi
 
05:31
Uses Cosmelite Cream (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin/Mometasone Furoate) is primarily used as a skin bleaching agent, to lighten the appearance of the skin. Hydroquinone inhibits an enzyme known as tyrosinase, which lowers the amount of skin pigment formed in the skin. Another active ingredient, Tretinoin, then helps with the elimination of any melanin that has been dispersed. Cosmelite Cream also contains Mometasone Furoate, which is a corticosteroid that is used to suppress the permeability of the membrane as well as any potential immune response. Dermatologists frequently advise patients affected by hyperpigmentation to use this combination cream. Dosage and Administration Always use Cosmelite Cream (Hydroquinone/Tretinoin/Mometasone Furoate) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

10 Ways to Treat Psoriatic Arthritis ( 8 of 10 )
 
00:59
10 Ways to Treat Psoriatic Arthritis ( 8 of 10 ) Immunosuppressants Names: Azathioprine (Imuran, Azasan), cyclosporine (Sandimmune, Neoral), leflunomide (Arava) How it helps: Similar to methotrexate, these drugs suppress the immune system. They are also DMARDs, as they slow joint destruction. What you should know: These are typically used only in very severe cases. Side effects include a risk of infection, anemia, and liver problems. Azathioprine and cyclosporine require monitoring every one to three months to check the liver and blood counts. Dr. Fohrman says he does not often prescribe cyclosporine because it also requires regular blood pressure and kidney tests.
Rheumatoid arthritis
 
45:44
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that results in a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs, but principally attacks flexible (synovial) joints. It can be a disabling and painful condition, which can lead to substantial loss of functioning and mobility if not adequately treated. The process involves an inflammatory response of the capsule around the joints (synovium) secondary to swelling (turgescence) of synovial cells, excess synovial fluid, and the development of fibrous tissue (pannus) in the synovium. The pathology of the disease process often leads to the destruction of articular cartilage and ankylosis (fusion) of the joints. RA can also produce diffuse inflammation in the lungs, the membrane around the heart (pericardium), the membranes of the lung (pleura), and white of the eye (sclera), and also nodular lesions, most common in subcutaneous tissue. Although the cause of RA is unknown, autoimmunity plays a big part, and RA is a systemic autoimmune disease. It is a clinical diagnosis made on the basis of symptoms, physical exam, radiographs (X-rays) and labs. This video is targeted to blind users.

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis: Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management
 
01:08:22
In Australia, at least 5,000 children are affected by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis JIA at any one time. The prevalence is between one and four cases per 1000 children. It is a chronic, autoimmune, inflammatory joint disease and the most common rheumatic disease in children and adolescents. JIA carries the potential for longer term inflammatory activity and complications, leaving a lasting impact on the child's function, growth and quality of life. Accurate and early diagnosis along with appropriate management and referral are essential for maximising patient outcomes and quality of life. With good treatment, most patients with JIA are able to lead an active life. Deaths due to JIA are rare, but the condition may have considerable effects on quality of life because of the psychological impact of long-term illness, the effects it imposes on family life and the side effects of medications used to treat it. It is important that children presenting with JIA are diagnosed early and GPs commence initial management and refer promptly to a paediatric rheumatologist. Because of the relatively low prevalence of JIA in the general population, GPs often have little experience with its diagnosis or management. Guidelines have been developed to fill that gap and reflect the current evidence based approach to managing children with JIA. This program covers the recommendations for the early diagnosis and multidisciplinary management of JIA in the primary care setting. It examines the practice points related to early identification, referral, prevention of complications, minimisation of pain and joint damage and improved quality of life. This program is one of four in the Musculoskeletal Guideline Series. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has developed national musculoskeletal clinical guidelines for general practitioners and other primary care health professionals for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and osteoporosis. The guidelines are approved by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). Produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation http://www.rhef.com.au/
