Sleep disruptions are associated with many brain disorders, including anxiety, dementias, and traumatic brain injury. While these disruptions are sometimes viewed as a side effect of brain disorders, new findings presented today suggest that aberrant sleep-wake cycles can also drive brain pathology.
Senescent cells are classified as cells that are not older and deteriorated but also compromise the function of cells around them. Studies in animals have shown that the removal of these particular cells can improve some of the effects of aging; including delaying the onset of cataracts.
It is easier to move health care to a phone than it is to move hospitals to remote communities. In fact, I believe we must get care to where patients are instead of getting patients to where care is located. That is a revolution that is starting now. To help power this new disruptive platform … Continue reading Dispatch from Davos: Hospitals of the future will not be traditional hospitals
But people also underestimate their impairment due to drowsiness when it comes to other mental and physical activities. When there’s been chronic sleep-deprivation, individuals actually reset their baseline so that their state of sluggishness, ill health and mental fatigue becomes their new “normal.” If you think you’re getting by just fine on four or five hours … Continue reading It’s time to wake up to the fact that a general lack of sleep is severely and negatively affecting all of us

Scientists have reported that the gut microbiome plays a key role in the development of severe food allergies, and could be exploited to prevent their development. Previously, scientists have identified that infants allergic to cow’s milk had different compositions of gut microbes than non-allergic infants. Research has also shown that some microbes are associated with a lower … Continue reading Gut microbiome helps body against food allergies

Precision medicine flips the script on conventional medicine, which typically offers blanket recommendations and prescribes treatments designed to help more people than they harm but that might not work for you. The approach recognizes that we each possess distinct molecular characteristics, and they have an outsize impact on our health.
Wellness is essentially about finding our best energy, weight and emotional mindset—our power. It’s not about the latest trend. When we lack the key nutrients or hormone balance to feel good, our best efforts are only representative of half of our true potential, not a true reflection of all we could do and accomplish.
But perhaps the most well-studied part of anti-aging is the role of telomeres, the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes that naturally get shorter as we get older. As we age, telomeres shorten naturally, but there are some things we can do to slow, or even, in small part, reverse that process. Endurance exercises reversed the shortening of … Continue reading DNA researchers pinpoint the type of exercise that could extend life
