    Gastrointestinal Issues and Feeding Tubes in the CHD Community

    in Health

    According to Corience: An Independent European Platform on Congenital Heart Defects, " As many as 40–60% of children with congenital heart defects are undernourished. 


    Healthy babies double their weight in 6 months; however, children with congenital heart defects put on weight more slowly. Their growth is also affected by the heart defect.


    Why do children with congenital heart disease not grow as other children do? The answer is because the heart defect makes them need more energy. Their diagnosis might also complicate feeding for several different reasons. Heart failure makes them too tired to feed. Some of them might have trouble keeping down their feeds. Others seem to have difficulty in coordinating breathing and nursing.


    This episode will investiage what kinds of equipment might be needed to help a babe with a congenital heart defect if that baby cannot nurse or feed normally. Listen as one mother shares her experience with her baby -- who needed a feeding tube. We'll also talk with a clinical psychologist who specializes in early infancy and childhood as well as eating disorders and tube feeding. She works for the NoTube Limited Liability Corporation, which was founded to help children all over the world to overcome the severe condition of tube dependency. Discover how one mother and a company over six thousand miles apart helped one little boy wean successfully from his feeding tube without ever leaving home!

    How can Selenium improvement keep you from developing Cancer?

    in Health

    Selenium is an essential mineral. Your body needs it to function. It protects your cells—and DNA—from free radical damage. But you may not be getting enough.


    Selenium levels in soil vary from region to region. Poor soil quality and gastrointestinal illnesses put you at risk for low selenium levels. The problem is there are no clear signs of deficiency. Your first symptom could be low immunity, high blood sugar… Or worse. Don’t wait until you know you need more to start paying attention. Tune in Wednesday March 4, 2015 for the rest of the story.

    GMOs and Genetics - Roundup Behind Our Health Crisis

    in Health

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. Why should this matter to you? Because she has found the link between genes and the severity of health problems following GMO exposure. The best of all is that the genes she'll uncover are available on both 23andMe and Sterling's App. Her belief is that perhaps the worst problem with GMO foods it that they lead to increased use of toxic herbicides. The widespread adoption of Roundup Ready crops has directly led to much greater use of Roundup, which is making its way to our dinner table.  Contrary to popular belief, Roundup is toxic to humans. A remarkable number of modern diseases are rising in incidence in step with Roundup's increased usage on crops, and she believes she can explain the underlying mechanisms by which Roundup is contributing to these disease epidemics. To emphasise the seriousness of this, some might react to Roundup with only small effects, while others with a different gene profile experience life threatening health conditions and autoimmune reactions.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff's background info:


    Stephanie Seneff has a Bachelor's degree from MIT in biology with a minor in food and nutrition, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, also from MIT. Her research over the past decade has focused on understanding the effects of certain environmental toxicants, such as aluminum and glyphosate, on human physiology. She proposes that a low-micronutrient, high-carbohydrate diet, combined with excess exposure to environmental toxicants, and insufficient sunlight exposure to the skin and eyes, play a crucial role in many modern conditions and diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, Alzheimer's disease and autism.

    The Owners' Manual for the Human Body--HEALTH SOLUTIONS: Blood Thinners

    in Education

    THE SHOW AUDIO IS NOW AVAILABLE!! PLEASE ENJOY, SORRY FOR THE DELAY...We appreciate each of you immensely... <3


    BLOODTHINNERS”-do they really thin the blood?
    It has become common practice to give elderly human, baby aspirin daily for the purpose of thinning their blood.
    Now what does it mean:  “thinning the blood?”
    How can aspirin thin the blood? Well, it does not. What we call blood thinners are medi-sins that prevent blood from coagulating.
    What are the side effects of daily aspirin usage?
    Stomach ulcers, intestinal bleeding, increased risk of pancreatic cancer, kidney damages, eye damages…
    The benefits of blood thinning therapy taken from Dr. Mercola site;
    Study Comparing Blood-Thinning Therapies to no Antithrombotic Therapy
    • Participants included 279 patients who were diagnosed with heart failure that required diuretic therapy
    • Participants were divided into three groups, aspirin therapy, warfarin therapy and no antithrombotic therapy
    Results of the Study
    • Aspirin and warfarin didn't provide the patients with any valuable health benefits
    • There didn't appear to be any substantial differences of incidences of death, nonfatal heart attacks or nonfatal stroke in the three groups of the study
    • Patients in the aspirin group had increased chances of experiencing serious gastrointestinal problems
    • Patients in the aspirin therapy group were twice as likely as the patients in the warfarin group to face hospitalization for cardiovascular complications, particularly worsening cases of heart failure during the first 12 months following the study


    If you want to thin the blood isn’t it normal that you reach for water first?

    Getting to the Bottom of Gastrointestinal Complaints

    in Health

    On this week’s show Joyce and Mike welcome Ricky Safer (CEO) and Joanne Grieme (Board Chair) from PSC Partners Seeking a Cure, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis.  PSC is a chronic liver disease where the bile ducts become impaired, eventually leading to deterioration of the liver.  It is commonly associated with inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis.
    We will discuss the difficulties patients often encounter in getting an accurate diagnosis of this condition.  Until it is properly diagnosed, it is not possible to set out a reasonable treatment plan.
    People with PSC often need a liver transplant.  One young man has had three liver transplants and is doing well.  We talk about liver transplants.
    As with so many rare diseases, the patient becomes responsible for navigating the medical system, arbitrating among the advice of many specialists, and keeping track of appointments and records.  Ricky and Joanne share what they have learned about dealing with the complexity of gastrointestinal complaints.
