Smart Fats to OutSmart Aging with Steven Masley, MDIn Smart Fats to Out-Smart Aging, Steven Masley, MD, brings years of research based results – and success with patients – to public television viewers once again. The bottom line is that Smart Fat to Out-Smart Aging is a proven program to help transform people’s lives, so they are healthier, and feel fantastic. Read More Eat Fat Get Thin with Mark Hyman, MDMany of us have long been told that fat makes us fat, contributes to heart disease, and generally erodes our health. Neurobiological research using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has begun to identify brain networks associated with reading stories.
While prior studies suggest that connection to a story told in the first person may be more captivating (everything else being equal), the researchers chose the book due to its page-turning plot.
As we learn and experience, the connectome, or map of neural connections within our brain, changes.
Increased connectivity was also found in the central sulcus of the brain, which is located at the boundary between the motor and the sensory centers.
The use of fMRI scans to study changes associated with experience offers a number of interesting possibilities. Come to a FREE 2 hour talk on Monday 14th October 7-9pm at the Little Escape, Crystal Palace.
Hypnotherapist Simon Pimenta will talk about techniques you can use to train your mind, and change your brain, based on discoveries in Neuro-Science. For more health and wellbeing tips and strategies, plus a free copy of my report ‘Six Steps To High Self Esteem’, visit my website homepage and subscribe to my blog. SIMON PIMENTA is a hypnotherapist, coach and trainer working with people to boost resilience and performance, and minimise stress. After working in a demanding job as the Director of a Housing Trust, he went off sick and remained unable to work for the next 8 years. He discovered a pioneering approach to resolving health issues and quickly got back his health, and now trains others using these same techniques, to help them become happier, healthier and achieve their goals. A wave of pain swept across June Camden’s* head, steadily gaining strength and speed like an impending tsunami. More than three million women in Canada have had a migraine, the most debilitating form of headache.
Women are three times more likely than men to suffer from migraines, and most experience their first around puberty. Experts believe a migraine begins in the brain, where waves of electrical activity, moving at about 3 mm a minute, spread from the visual cortex, building momentum like a storm at sea. With this pain centre activated, pain presents in the head, with repercussions everywhere else. June saw countless neurologists, migraine specialists, chiropractors, naturopaths and allergists as she searched for answers. Just like June, migraine sufferers worldwide (from 30 countries and counting) often seek out Cleary’s alternative approach as a last resort. June almost didn’t make it to her appointment with Cleary because her migraine that day was so severe, but eventually she managed to stumble in. He tested her ear for referred pain (her migraine discomfort often radiated down her shoulders and back) and then taped a mustard seed on the most painful spot on her ear.
June floated home after her 30-minute session and slept soundly for hours — her first full night in years.
One reason complementary therapies can work so well is that they inspire a sense of personal control.
Migraine Meter is the first smartphone app designed to help people monitor their migraines. A new Dutch study suggests women with migraines may have structural differences in their brains, including little lesions caused by restricted blood flow to certain areas.
Hello there…Well honestly this post is life saver for me, I am so frustrated with this migraine pain and probably this is because of office work load.

1.1 Students learn to identify the role of enzymes in metabolism, describe their chemical composition and use a simple model to describe their specificity on substrates. Most people would know that some animals (like frogs, snakes and lizards) are a€?cold-bloodeda€? and that when the weather is cold, these animals are less active than when ita€™s warm. Each enzyme has a unique shape - it is this shape that means it will make just one reaction go. Enzymes are not usually used up in chemical reactions - they can be used over and over, so they can be present in tiny amounts. Enzymes are difficult to study in high school but there is one in saliva that we can study. Explain why our bodies need to make large amounts of digestive enzymes (like pepsin) but only tiny amounts of other enzymes (like hexokinase, which is present in every cell and catalyses the breakdown of glucose to glucose 6-phosphate). This experiment is important to addressing the skills outcome H11 (a€?A student justifies the appropriateness of a particular investigation plana€?). I hope you have a picture of many chemical reactions occurring in your own body right now, each one occurring because of the presence of tiny amounts of enzymes. So, it is important that the temperature and acidity in your body has to be kept at the right level.
Maybe you can think of some changes that occur in your body when the temperature gets too low! The first step to prevent your death is for your body to recognise the change in your body temperature.
I have only considered what happens when there is a danger of you over-heating but there are many aspects of your body that have to be kept constant - for example, oxygen, sugar and water levels in the blood.
Nerve impulses travel very quickly, and travel from one small part of the body to another small part.
Hormones travel relatively slowly in blood, from an endocrine gland to a number of target organs. An example might be the hormone adrenalin, travelling from the adrenal glands above the kidneys to skin (constricting blood vessels), the pacemaker in the brain (increasing heart rate), the liver (increasing the level of glucose in the blood) and many other organs.

At the Mid-Atlantic ridge, a€?black smokersa€? raise the temperature of the ocean above 100oC without the water boiling (because of the very high pressure).
There are other organisms that thrive in temperatures close to the freezing point of water. The temperatures at which organisms are found and the range over which they can survive is because of the enzymes in their bodies. A Grylloblattid - (Grylloblatta bifratrilecta) an insect related to crickets and cockroaches that lives in snow. Leta€™s make our ectotherm the impressive but relatively harmless (if left alone) Red-bellied Black Snake (Pseudechis porphyriacus). Comparing our ectoderm (Black Snake) and endoderm (Wombat) it is clear that both have behaviours and bodies that help them to survive extremes.
Your textbook does not give any examples of plants responding to temperature change - only adaptations to temperature extremes -so Eucalypts have drooping leaves which helps them to avoid overheating when the Sun is high; deciduous trees drop their leaves which helps them to avoid frost damage. Responses of plants to temperature change are not common but there has been great interest from horticulturalists over several hundreds of years in the ability of Rhododendron spp to curl their leaves in response to temperature change. Most people would know that some animals (like frogs, snakes and lizards) are a€?cold-bloodeda€? and that when the weather is cold, these animals are less active than when ita€™s warm.A  Why is this?
Enzymes are not usually used up in chemical reactions - they can be used over and over, so they can be present in tiny amounts.A  But most importantly, they only work under special conditions - a narrow temperature range and a narrow pH (acidity) range. That usually doesna€™t happen because things happen in your body to cool your body.A  You sweat, surface veins open up so that blood flows closer to the cooling air, and you breathe more often releasing warm our from your lungs. This is a practical investigation involving second-hand research.A  Before you start it, you should read these notes. I have only considered what happens when there is a danger of you over-heating but there are many aspects of your body that have to be kept constant - for example, oxygen, sugar and water levels in the blood.A  For each, there are receptors that detect the changes and a control centre (usually in the brain) that counteracts the change. Nerve impulses travel very quickly, and travel from one small part of the body to another small part.A  An example might be from a fingertip to a very small part of the brain when we touch something. There are other organisms that thrive in temperatures close to the freezing point of water.A  For example, there are bacteria-like cells that grow on snow turning it red (to produce a€?watermelon snowa€?). On the other hand, individual organisms can generally survive in a fairly narrow range.A  For example, tropical fish die in cold water, yet antarctic fish would die in tropical waters. Choose an ectothermic animal species, an endothermic animal species and a plant species.A  Dona€™t forget the advice about second-hand research, especially to acknowledge your sources.

One of the things I?ve been accused of is trying to pack too much information into my presentations. Included on the DVD, but not shown on TV, is a special live question and answer section filled with insightful audience comments and valuable information not contained in the basic program.
Far more than a book on tape ? this is an actual live seminar, nearly 6 hours in length, packed with vital information about how you can customize your personal brain health.
Imagine spending your drive time in the car developing, stretching and restoring your brain, instead of numbing it with meaningless ?noise?.
Based on your results it will give you personalized suggestions on how to balance your brain. Daniel G Amen, MD is an award-winning physician, psychiatrist, best-selling author, international speaker, and brain enhancement expert. The brain, of course, figures in everything we do – our work life, our relationships, the way we feel and the way we perceive the world. Amen, MD demonstrates how to optimize mental performance and overcome self-defeating behaviors like depression, ADD and anxiety.
Amen has been helping people heal common mental issues like Depression, Anxiety, Attention Deficit Disorder, Impulsive Behavior and other problems by addressing the health of the brain. Masley offers his audience proven, simple lifestyle changes to help them lose unwanted weight and keep it off, feel and look better than ever, control blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol profiles, and prevent and reverse heart disease. Now a growing body of research is debunking our fat-phobia, revealing the health and weight-loss benefits of a higher fat diet rich in eggs, nuts, healthy oils, avocados, and other delicious super-foods. Mark Hyman introduces a new weight-loss and healthy living program based on the latest science and explain how eating fat can help promote weight loss and optimum health.
A strong narrative can resonate with your personality and experiences, and help set a framework for your future.
Most previous studies have focused on the cognitive processes involved in short stories, while subjects are actually reading them in the fMRI scanner. For the first five days, the participants came in to the lab every morning to obtain a base-line functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) measurement of their brain at rest. This historical thriller follows its protagonist through his arrival in Pompeii as the new "aquarius," or hydraulic engineer, to run the aqueduct for the area surrounding the Bay of Naples. The neurons in this area are not only activated when the body is active, but also when you think about being active. At this point the study stopped, leaving the duration of their persistence an open question at present.
One of the more interesting to me is the possibility of increasing the strength of the effect using transcranial direct current stimulation or transcranial magnetic stimulation.

By noon, it had surged severely enough to partially blind her: the result of a migraine no combination of drugs could soothe. Reaching for her emergency stash of instant ice packs, she’d lie across the back seat with her eyes closed, willing the torment to end. Despite the prevalence of migraines (rates exceed those of diabetes, asthma and osteoarthritis), stigma runs high and sympathy low, which explains why 49 percent of women with migraines suffer in silence. Symptoms include sound and light sensitivities, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, numbness, tingling sensations and difficulty finding the right words. A visit to a fruit stand while cottaging with her family one summer when she was 14 ended in disaster.
It lets them track their history (date, duration, severity, impact on daily life) so they can review it with their doctor. The lesions appear like tiny freckles on brain scans but don’t cause long-term damage. However, because it can maintain its body temperature within a narrow range, wombats can remain active over a much wider temperature range.

By owning this DVD you can refer to it again and again, gaining new insight and information every time you watch it. He is widely regarded as one of the world?s foremost experts on applying brain scan imaging science to clinical psychiatric practice.. Any damage to the brain, through aging, substance abuse, trauma or other surprising factors – can affect our quality of life adversely.
His many tips and tools to help make your brain as healthy as it can be – that he dispenses liberally throughout the program – are all easily done by anyone, sometimes startling in their “I can do that” simplicity. Offering practical tools, meal plans, recipes, and shopping lists, as well as step-by-step, easy-to-follow advice, Eat Fat Get Thin with Mark Hyman, MD is a cutting edge way to lose weight, prevent disease, and feel good. The Berns study, published in the journal Brain Connectivity, focused on changes in brain connectivity occurring between reading chapters of a novel, and the fading of those changes once the novel was finished. Then for the next nine days, they were assigned a section of a novel to read at night, returning the next morning to take a quiz covering the material in the latest section, and then taking a new fMRI scan. When the flow of water suddenly stops, he suspects a blockage near its sources on Mount Vesuvius. First, heightened connectivity was seen in the left temporal cortex, and area associated with understanding language. For example, thinking about running produces very similar changes in this region to those which occur when actually running.
It would be fascinating (or frightening) if the reading of a book could be transformed to a real-seeming experience in an internally visualized fantasy world. June’s daily headaches were as powerful and unstoppable as any force of nature — and they were destroying her life.
You quietly stop living the life you want and instead live according to the level of your pain,” she says. An attack can last four to 72 hours, says Purdy, and may be preceded by an aura, a visual disturbance such as temporary blindness, blurry vision or seeing stars or zigzag lines.
Headache Network Canada says 92 percent of sufferers miss work and major family events because the pain is so severe.
She figured she had nothing to lose, and Brendan Cleary, this supposed shaman, was only a short drive away. The kit contains 6 high quality audio CDs and a Companion Handbook filled with interactive self-tests, illustrations and Dr. Amen guides you through a series of mental exercises to sharpen your focus, improve your memory and enhance relaxation. At the same time, making an effort to maintain a healthy brain through activities and protective behaviors that keep it youthful and vital can make every other aspect of your life more positive and more enjoyable. Amen shows us in simple language how our brain works, how damage (through bumps, falls, substance abuse, diet, aging, and other factors) can reveal itself in our negative behaviors, and how to improve brain health and achieve optimum results. When the novel was finished, the participants returned to the lab each of the next five mornings for an fMRI scan to track the evolution of any changes observed during the experiment. Investigating, he becomes embroiled in a a fraudulent plan to cheat the Roman government of its water fees. Remember that the students were not reading while the fMRI scans were being taken, which shows us that the brain remained "at alert" to continue this activity. Because no two migraines are alike, identifying and treating them is a game of trial and error.
Chiropractic massage offered temporary relief, but it also brought on bouts of blindness (usually 30 minutes after a session), and her practitioner advised against it. Always check with your province and insurance company about regulations and reimbursement prior to treatment. Please check your email, click the link to verify your address, and then submit your comment. Amen teaches you how to break anxiety and depression by killing the ?ANTs? (automatic negative thoughts) in your head and replace them with healing, rational thoughts. Amen?s ?One Page Miracle? that can put you on the path to a better brain and a better life starting today.
Amen has been aware that most people will not be able to get their brains scanned, either because they are not near one of his clinics or because of the cost. A recent study led by Emory University's Gregory Berns has demonstrated that reading a novel produces physical changes in the brain similar to those that would result from living as one or more of the characters.
Finding the proof, with the aid of a noblewoman, seems less important when the volcano decides to erupt. Always physically active in the past, June soon found exercise only aggravated her symptoms. Not all therapists are recognized by all insurance companies, depending on their credentials. If you can't find this email, access your profile editor to re-send the confirmation email.
In some studies, the technique on this CD has been found to be as effective as anti-depressant medication. He rushes into Pompeii to rescue the noblewoman, and they both escape through the lower portions of the once again active aqueduct. And she’s more active than ever, riding horses, kayaking, kick-boxing, cycling and running. Amen developed three wonderful questionnaires to help people see how their own brain functions. She also worried about their highly addictive nature and potential effects on her liver and kidney function. And the good news is there?s compelling proof that you can fix what?s wrong for many problems! This book can teach all about the brain systems and what mental disorder correlate with each different part of your brain, for a more individualized treatment plan. Amen as he takes you through each case study and shows you how each disorder can affect each person differently.
