Swallowing difficulty and Huntington's disease
Posted August 3, 2014, by LaVonne Goodman, M.D.
Dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, is a big problem in Huntington's disease (HD), but surprisingly little is known about it. It is not known how early it begins, or how symptoms and swallowing dysfunction progress over the stages of HD. Further, even less is known about techniques that might prevent, alleviate or treat it. As such, we welcome the recent attention given this symptom by investigators from Europe.
READ THE ARTICLE -- LISTEN TO THE SHOW...
Tonight we will talk about preimplantation genetic diagnosis or (PGD) for Huntington’s disease with Dr. Goodman. Read her article on www.HDDrugworks.org titled: PGD for the Prevention of HD. http://hddrugworks.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=336&Itemid=30
“For more than a decade, couples at risk for Huntington's disease have had the option to conceive an unaffected child by utilizing the reproductive process of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). If PGD became common practice in HD, it could eliminate the majority of disease for the next generation. So if PGD has the potential to mostly "wipe out" HD for the next generation, why is it so rarely utilized?”
We will discuss the pros and cons of this novel approach to eliminating HD for every in the generations to come. Tune in to a very interesting and informative program with Dr. LaVonne Goodman.

Over eleven years at Emory she transitioned from fellow to faculty to medical director of the HDSA Center of Excellence, with involvement in several HSG studies. More recently, to enhance her skills in human disease based research she completed a Masters in Clinical and Translational Research (2012) while a faculty member at Emory University. Between Emory and VCU, she has over 13 years’ experience as an HD clinical study investigator, working with symptomatic, pre symptomatic, and HD at risk research participants. Her current research interests are in genetic causes and risks for essential tremor, Huntington disease pre-motor physiology changes, and Huntington disease observational and treatment trials.

This week you will find out how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges, and reverse myriad health problems. Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to my guest this week, Dr. Davis, excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: It’s due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch. After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic—and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. Tune in to find out how you can transform your life without wheat.
William Davis, MD, is a preventive cardiologist whose unique approach to diet allows him to advocate reversal, not just prevention, of heart disease. He is the founder of the Track Your Plaque program. He lives and practice cardiology in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For more information on Dr. Davis, please visit: www.WheatBellyBlog.com

Personality disorders are of many types. They range from self -consciousness, and inferiority, to disorientation and mal adjustment in thought.A sick mind can be as real and distressing as a sick body, and at sometimes even more than the body, as the mind replays the past events of life, it becomes so real and alive to the individual who has done nothing to alter the disorder, or confusion, that keeps them so occupied in thought. each moment is spent in flames of anger, or to have revenge of that particular situtation or condition.Understanding the mind cannot be released of its passions, until it is voiced of this errort thought, man continues to live in a consciousness of total dissater trying to figure out the outcome of their error thinking.The personality then becomes adjusted to accomodate this attitude of mind,as each error thought enters the sub-conscious mind, and hides itself, many find themselves in need of psychiatric help.They can often help themselves if they come face to face with their thoughts about their condition, and uderstand that Love for themselves, is the key to forgive and let go.There are many reasons why many people go through these situations in life and some never get to experience the joy in living and loving LOVE is the medicine for this DIS-EASE.
