Plantar Fasciitis: Overcoming Heel and Arch Pain Naturally

One of the most common foot maladies people suffer from is plantar fasciitis.
Like most people, doctors typically think of the foot as somehow separate from the rest of the body–they focus on treating only the foot and don’t look at the other physiological systems or diet and lifestyle factors that go into creating these problems in the first place.
If you want to heal a chronic foot problem, you need to treat your whole body.
So, my job as a holistic podiatrist is to stimulate the pathway to healing (primary inflammation) and block the pathway to plantar fasciitis and other forms of foot pain (chronic inflammation).
The most common treatment for the condition is cortisone, a powerful steroid that blocks inflammation.
Treating Your Feet from the Ground Up: Diet/Lifestyle Changes to Heal Plantar Fascitiis There are two factors we need to consider when treating plantar fasciitis.
The second is identifying burdens on the immune system that make primary inflammation less efficient.
Proper hydration facilitates cellular repair, and most people don’t get enough water.
The goal is to work with, not against, the immune system so we can effect a complete healing.
I have been treating patients who come to see me with plantar fasciitis using the steps above for over 30 years.

Teen moms at risk of heart disease

Teen moms at long-term cardiovascular risk The new study found that women who had their first pregnancy before the age of 20 had a much greater long-term risk of cardiovascular disease than women who became mothers after that age.
She explained: Women who participated in our study came from five very different study sites.
We observed a relatively consistent association in which early childbearing was associated with greater cardiovascular disease risk across study sites, which supports the validity of our results.”
Strengths and limitations of the study In addition to the diverse sample of the study, Prof. Pirkle spoke to MNT about its other strengths, such as the researchers having used the laboratory-based version of the FRS to measure heart disease risk. “Because this version of the [FRS] largely uses biomarker measures (e.g., blood test results) and clinical measures (such as blood pressure),” Prof. Pirkle explained, “it is less prone to the biases often encountered in observational epidemiological studies that rely on participant self-report.”
This puts the study respondents at risk of memory loss, which may have biased the results, says the team.
Prof. Pirkle shared with us an additional potential limitation, which also has to do with the advanced age of the participants. “Because the IMIAS includes study sites from middle-income settings,” she explained, “especially Brazil and Colombia, where premature mortality was high when these women were younger, there is a possibility that we only selected ‘survivors’ for our study.” “The first mechanism,” Prof. Pirkle went on, “relates to the consequences of adolescent pregnancy and childbirth […] Adolescents who have children early in life may have [fewer] opportunities to finish school and to earn sufficient incomes over their lifetimes.”
Future research “This suggests that the consequences of adolescent childbearing,” said Prof. Pirkle, “such as less social and economic opportunities, are driving the association that we observed in our study.”

Who Should Design Tools for Older People?

“The idea is that by the end of the fellowship the teams will build an actual thing for people to use,” says KT Gillett, who does community outreach for Blue Ridge Labs.
Last year, the fellowship program tackled issues of social justice.
Helping older adults is this year’s theme.
Seniors Innovating for Seniors At 71, the second-oldest fellow in this year’s program is Eileen McGinn—an “expert” because she is living older age.
Though McGinn’s team is not exactly sure what shape their project will ultimately take, she says that rather than just starting with solutions on a white board, they’ve decided to jump in and actually form Second Act, a NYC support group for women “seniorpreneurs.” She explains that other city programs that train entrepreneurs are geared toward younger people willing to work insane hours; unlike those programs, Second Act is for older women who want to use a skill to supplement their Social Security by $500 to $1,200 a month “so they can live like human beings.” All of the ideas the teams are presenting today are devised to tackle issues faced by older adults.
“To me, going into Blue Ridge Labs was like going into a different culture.
Get McGinn talking about the project that her team is building, and she positively lights up.
Since late June, they’ve been holding regular workshops with seniorpreneurs, including a cake baker, a woman who imports crafts from Africa and a children’s book writer.
They needed somebody to pay attention to them.” McGinn isn’t just helping to lead Team Second Act.
After doing a life inventory, she has decided to return to a previous career teaching English as a Second Language—that is, after the Blue Ridge Labs fellowship is over.

Study: Assaults go up when daylight saving time ends

While more sleep sounds good to most people, a new study is saying that more assaults are committed once the clocks fall back.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania say the number of assaults go up by nearly 3 percent right after the country sets their clocks back one hour, CBS Philadelphia reports.
The surprising findings added that assaults actually went down by three percent when daylight saving time starts in March as Americans lose an hour of sleep. “Sleep problems have previously been associated with increased antisocial and criminal behavior, so we were surprised to find that increased sleep was associated with increased offending,” said Richard Perry University’s Adrian Raine in a press release. “You think, ‘If I don’t get a lot of sleep, I’m going to be cranky and angry.’
Your intention is to act more aggressively, but your behavior does not reflect that because you’re tired.
You’re too lethargic,” doctoral student Rebecca Umbach theorized.
Although the study found that moving the clocks back resulted in an uptick in violence, leaping forward comes with its own side effects.
Car accidents, workplace injuries, and suicides all reportedly increase the Monday after clock moves forward in March.
Given the reported negative impacts at both ends of daylight saving time, a number of states have debated if the practice should be stopped forever.
