CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) –

La lucha en contra de la prescripción de opioides epidemia continúa en todo el país, y la de Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center está trabajando para frenar el consumo de opiáceos entre los veteranos locales.

“En una escala de uno a diez, algunos días puede ser un uno. Algunos días puede ser un quince,” veterano de la Fuerza Aérea de la Rae Carlers dijo de su dolor de espalda crónico.

No es un candidato para la cirugía, Carlers fue puesto en un nuevo programa de manejo del dolor, sin la ayuda de pastillas para el dolor.

Ese plan incluye un viaje a ver a Jefe de Clínica del Dolor, el Dr. Robert Friedman.

“Mira mi carta y dice ‘estás en esto y estás en esto y estás en eso. Quiero que deje de tomar todo de él”. Miré alrededor de la habitación para ver qué universidad se graduó de la,” Carlers dijo, agregando que ella no podía imaginar una vida sin opioides para tratar el dolor espontáneo.

Sin embargo, Carlers seguido el Dr. Friedman plan, que no incluye ninguna de las recetas.

“No escribo recetas,” Friedman dijo. “Ellos dijeron: ‘¿qué vas a hacer para el dolor crónico?’ Yo dije, bueno que podemos hacer mindfulness, podemos hacer la acupuntura, podemos ver en la dieta, podemos mirar en el ejercicio. Podemos ver cosas que la gente ha estado mirando para el dolor crónico desde principios de la década de los 70, pero tenemos un poco olvidado como los opioides epidemia se desarrolló.”

Según Friedman, la crónica, la terapia con opioides pueden tener un efecto perjudicial para algunos pacientes, especialmente los veteranos que lidiar con el trastorno de estrés postraumático o TEPT.

“Con base en que, VA cambiado su enfoque general para el dolor crónico, comenzando en 2009, de mirar muy cuidadosamente la manera en que los pacientes estaban haciendo en la crónica de la terapia con opioides y también, en la búsqueda de alternativas, en la crónica de la terapia con opioides para el dolor,” Friedman dijo. “Los veteranos, por desgracia, tienen un montón de cosas diferentes que hacer que su dolor más difícil, más difícil de controlar su dolor de la gente fuera de la VA que no son veteranos”.

En su lugar, Friedman recomienda un plan de cuidado basado en la dieta, el sueño, la fisioterapia y la acupuntura para controlar el dolor. Él dijo que los pacientes se inician por medio de la acupuntura de socorro.

“No he cambiado su imagen de resonancia magnética. No he cambiado el disco de la enfermedad. No he cambiado de su desgarro del manguito rotador, pero he cambiado de la forma en que el cerebro y el cuerpo es el procesamiento de la información. Casi como la fijación de un virus en un super equipo,” Friedman dijo.

Según Friedman, el mindfulness y la meditación, el yoga, incluso clases de tai chi ayuda a mantener acupunturas’ efecto.

Como resultado de Friedman del programa, Ralph H. Johnson VA ha reducido el consumo de opiáceos por más de 30 por ciento en los últimos cuatro años.

Según los datos proporcionados por la administración de veteranos, de todos los ambulatorios de la farmacia de los pacientes, sólo el 7.2 por ciento de Charleston VA pacientes se dispensan a los opioides. Eso se compara con un 11,6 por ciento a nivel nacional.

“La medicina no es una solución, es una banda de ayuda,” Carlers dijo. “Usted necesita para irse que de band aid y averiguar lo que el problema es”.

Ingrid Macher premieres Of Chubby to Mamacita – People – Culture … – ElTiempo.com

There is a colombian that reaches more than 13 million people a day without being president or a singer. Ingrid Macher, a woman in this city of 43 years, conquered the u.s. market with its message that ‘fitness’ and their motivational speaking.

Your routines and nutritional advice we have been around the world and have become one of the ‘influencers’ most powerful of Colombia. Now, with his second book, ‘From Chubby to Mamacita’, Macher seeks to continue to grow in the continent and around the globe.

@adelgaza20, as it’s called on Instagram, went from being a few minutes away from dying to be an icon of the exercise and the healthy life. After a strong attack of asthma, Macher was proposed and lost 50 pounds in 90 days. Started ‘Slimming 20’, the plan of power that it shares with its more than 15 million followers.

His second book arrives in Colombia after conquering the u.s. market. ‘Chubby at Mamacita’ has been led by eleven weeks, the list of ‘best sellers’ in the category of Dieting and weight loss on Amazon, beating other ‘influencers’ as Sascha Fitness.

Under the message “everything is possible for one who believes”, Macher, invites all women to set goals and fulfill their dreams.

Why build your business based on social networks?

I start my life as an entrepreneur, because there are many ‘youtubers’ and influencers in social networks that don’t do anything with your followers or do not have a clear message. I told myself that I had to write books and travel to other countries to carry this message of nutrition.

How prepared you are for this whole process?

I studied nutrition and all issues relating to the exercise and the management of the mind. I also learned how to monetize and pay my bills. People think that because you’re an ‘influencer’ you have to give them everything for free and don’t remember that one also pays for their own services.

You mention in your book the term ‘programming neurolingüistica’, what is it and why is it so important in your life?

I started to study neuro-linguistic programming because I thought it was great how you can receive orders in the brain without paying a psychologist or a specialist. With words and procedures are very simple, we can change the perspective of all and take away a lot of excuses from above.

What is it that you like most about your new book, ‘Chubby at Mamacita’?

There are books that say many things and don’t have the solution. ‘Chubby at Mamacita’ yes. There is No excuse. The routines can be done at home, in the park or in the office. In addition, the book not only invites you to become irresistibly healthy, but also to be very nice inside.

Throughout this process I learned the power of know how to wait and that things are not when you want to, but when God has predestined. Is not to write a book for writing, but to give you a sense.

Meditation may cause negative feelings for some, study finds – Today.com


Meditation is widely touted by wellness experts as a means to reduce stress, increase self-awareness, and encourage a healthy lifestyle. But it’s not all zen and self-actualization. In fact, a new study says the practice can result in distressing and potentially impairing experiences along the way.

The study, released Wednesday by Brown University researchers who interviewed nearly 100 meditators and meditation teachers, revealed frequently reported side effects, including hypersensitivity to light or sound. Insomnia and involuntary body movements was also reported, in addition to feelings of fear, anxiety, and panic.

Meditation can help relieve stress and provide calmness, but also brought up fear and anxiety for some people.

“We’re not trying to scare people away from trying meditation,” Jared Lindahl, a visiting assistant professor at Brown’s Cogut Center for the Humanities and co-lead researcher of the study told TODAY. “There is data that many people find tremendous benefits from meditating.”

With so many different types of meditation, teachers, and apps, people who want to meditate need to understand their goals and find a teacher or form that matches what they’re looking for, Lindahl said.

The duration of the negative effects — like insomnia or a loss of emotions —varied from person to person, anywhere from a few days to more than a decade, according to the study, which was published Wednesday in the science journal Plos One.

“Sometimes experiences were ostensibly desirable, such as feelings of unity or oneness with others. But some meditators reported them going too far, lasting too long or feeling violated, exposed or disoriented,” said Britton. “Others who had meditation experiences that felt positive during retreats reported that the persistence of these experiences interfered with their ability to function or work when they left the retreat and returned to normal life.”

It’s important to note that the researchers sought out meditators and teachers who have had challenging experiences because there isn’t much research on the subject. During their five-year process, they talked to practitioners from the three main types of meditation: Theravada, Zen and Tibetan.

Unexpected experiences

Willoughby Britton, the other co-lead researcher, explained the purpose of the study was not to determine the rate of negative experiences but to document them and find potential influencing factors. Some of those potential red flags which warrant more study, he said, include frequency and type of meditation practice, psychiatric and trauma history, and the relationship the meditator has with his or her teacher.

The science behind meditation is still in early stages. Previous research has found that mindful meditation, which focuses on breathing, can reduce pain. Certain types of meditation, combined with exercise, can ease symptoms of depression, according to a recent study.Sharon Salzberg, a meditation teacher and co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, acknowledged that unexpected or uncomfortable experiences can sometimes arise during meditation and applauded the study for examining an under-researched area.

“Certainly people at different times may go through some degree of difficulty. But it’s not everybody,” said Saltzberg. “I wouldn’t go into meditation thinking it’s going to be dreadful. The quality of instructor, the nature of the community and the ongoing support system makes a difference in how we handle the feelings that arise.”
