And Now for some news ….

 

Gut Microbiome and Visceral Fat

Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. lactis GCL2505 (B. lactis GCL2505) is able to survive passage through the intestine and then proliferate, leading to an increase in the amount of gut bifidobacteria.

In a study published in the journal Bioscience of Microbiota Food and Health, the Authors evaluated the impact of B. lactis GCL2505 on abdominal visceral fat storage in overweight and mildly obese Japanese adults.

This clinical study was a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group comparative trial performed for 12 weeks.

The study concluded that the results indicate that B. lactis GCL2505 reduces abdominal visceral fat, a key factor associated with metabolic disorders.

This finding suggests that this probiotic strain can potentially serve as a specific functional food to achieve visceral fat reduction in overweight or mildly obese individuals.

As always, discuss all Nutritional recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

Low Back Pain Amongst Health Professionals

Work-related musculoskeletal system diseases are commonly observed among nurses, physiotherapists, dentists, and dietitians.

The objective of a recent study published in the Journal of Back and Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation, was to assess working postures of nurses, physiotherapists, dentists and dietitians, to identify whether low back pain (LBP) is present, and to put forth the correlation between LBP, working posture, and other factors.

Twenty seven physiotherapists, 34 nurses, 30 dentists, and 16 dieticians were included. Impairment ratings of cases with LBP were analysed with Quebec Back Pain Disability Scale (Quebec).

Working postures were analysed with Owako Working Posture Analysis System.

Results of the study found that LBP was observed in 70.09% of healthcare professionals. Of the individuals suffering from LBP, 57.2% were working with a risky posture. 40.63% of individuals without LBP were using risky working postures.

The study concluded that considering that head-neck and trunk postures are changeable factors that are among the factors affecting LBP, correcting the working posture gains importance.

And Now for some news ….

 

Multivitamin Use and Cardiovascular Disease in Men

A study published in the American Society for Nutrition journal, investigated how multivitamin use is associated with the risk of CVD in initially healthy men at baseline.

Although multivitamins are widely used by US adults, few prospective studies have investigated their association with the long- and short-term risks of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

The study concluded that in this long-term prospective study in initially healthy men, multivitamin use for ≥20 y was associated with a lower risk of major CVD events.

As always, discuss all Nutritional recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

Chiropractic and Gastrointestinal Disorders

The purpose of a study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association, was to provide a narrative review of the literature of studies describing the management of disorders of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract using ‘chiropractic therapy’.

Chiropractic Therapy is broadly defined here as spinal manipulation therapy, mobilizations, soft tissue therapy, modalities and stretches.

Search limiters include access to full text studies published between 1980 and November 2012 in peer-reviewed journals, English language only involving human subjects.

Twenty-one articles were found that met our inclusion criteria. Retrievable articles varied from case reports to clinical trials to review articles of management options.

The majority of articles chronicling patient experiences under chiropractic care reported they demonstrated mild to moderate improvements in presenting symptoms. No adverse side effects were reported.

This suggests chiropractic care can be considered as an adjunctive therapy for patients with various GI conditions providing there are no co-morbidities.

Knuckle Cracking and Hand Osteoarthritis

Previous studies have not shown a correlation between knuckle cracking (KC) and hand osteoarthritis (OA).

However, one study showed an inverse correlation between knuckle cracking and metacarpophalangeal joint osteoarthritis.

The authors of a study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, conducted a retrospective case-control study among persons aged 50 to 89 years who received a radiograph of the right hand during the last 5 years.

Patients had radiographically proven hand osteoarthritis, and controls did not.

Participants indicated frequency, duration, and details of their knuckle cracking behavior and known risk factors for hand osteoarthritis.

The study concluded that a history of habitual knuckle cracking —including the total duration and total cumulative exposure—does not seem to be a risk factor for hand osteoarthritis.

Listeners are advised to contact your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about Habitual Knuckle Cracking to see if there are any contraindications in specific situations.

Consumers Drive Complementary and Alternative Medicine Movement

An article in the December 14, 2016 issue of Hospitals & Health Networks, discussed how Consumers are shifted their health care to more complementary and alternative medicine practices.

A growing number of hospitals are adding complementary or integrative therapies to their menu of services. One reason for the growth is the rise of consumerism in health care. “As patients want this, providers are being forced to help deliver some of these services…”

Another factor is growing acceptance among clinicians of various nonconventional therapies as an adjunct to traditional medicine, he says.

In addition to Reiki, complementary therapies include acupuncture, massage therapy, deep breathing exercises, meditation, guided imagery and yoga.

Some quick facts include the following:

· An estimated 59 million U.S. residents ages 4 and older had at least one expenditure for some type of complementary health approach in 2012.

· The average individual out-of-pocket expenditure was $433 for visits to a complementary practitioner, $368 for natural product supplements and $257 for self-care approaches.

· Spending increased with income. Average individual out-of-pocket expenditure for complementary health approaches was $435 for people with family incomes less than $25,000 and $590 for people with family incomes of $100,000 or more.
