Adventure treatment therapies: Recreational activities involved

When making reference to integrative treatment therapy, we are alluding to the fact that all alternative treatment approaches are also given a chance in the administration of treatment to health complications. That is why Adventure treatment therapies are experiential psychotherapy in which participants complete challenging activities within a safe and closely supervised environment also comes in. Under this arrangement, nothing is left out, ropes courses, problem-solving activities, outdoor experiences, and trust-based activities are just but a few examples of adventure therapy. And speaking to doctor Dalal Akoury, MD, President and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, doctor Akoury registers that adventure treatment therapy is interwoven into all the treatment programs at this facility, with residents typically alternating between a therapeutic adventure activity and equine therapy periodically. These are all group activities, though some have an individual component to them that requires the rest of the group to offer encouragement and support to one member.

At this facility, it is important to appreciate that we give all the residents an opportunity to participate in adventure treatment therapy via 16 elements on our challenge course, as well as numerous indoor adventure therapy activities including.

  • The challenge course and adventure activities provide the perfect opportunity to face interpersonal issues.
  • Residents gain a heightened awareness about behavior and consequences, acceptance, and trust.
  • They also may discover personal limitations or that they have greater reserves of strength, capabilities, and courage in the process.

Adventure therapy is voluntary

Though effective adventure therapy is accomplished in a safe, nurturing, and closely supervised environment, some residents may still be hesitant to participate. Those who prefer not to take part in certain activities always have the option of simply observing or attending another AWAREmed Health and Wellness Center group in which they feel comfortable. In all these our therapeutic recreational and activities program are all designed to promote recovery and encourage residents to make healthy lifestyle changes even after their time with us during the residential treatment.

Comprehensive fitness assessment

Each resident at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Center receives a thorough Fitness Assessment, which is used in planning activities to enhance the individual’s treatment process and to facilitate continuing care recommendations pertinent to recovery. The attending physician assesses his or her appropriate level of activity throughout the course of treatment. We emphasize the importance of health and wellness by teaching residents how to practice self-care on a daily basis.

Benefits of therapeutic recreation

In addition to the many therapeutic benefits that can be gained from participating in these activities, therapeutic recreation also allows residents to discover new and productive ways to fill their leisure hours, as well as process everyday stresses and pressures. For individuals who previously spent much of their days acquiring and using drugs or who responded to stress by engaging in self-harming activities learning healthy new pursuits can be a key element in promoting recovery and preventing relapse.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver complications

Nonalcoholic fatty liver

Nonalcoholic fatty liver complications are very common with overweight people and this demands that we take weight management seriously

Nonalcoholic fatty liver complications: Steatohepatitis

Having looked at the causes and consequences of nonalcoholic fatty liver and steatohepatitis previously, we want to find out possible treatment solutions for this health condition. Whereas prevention is the best approach of all possible health conditions, we often find ourselves suffering from certain health conditions which could have otherwise been prevented. If you are struggling with any weight related condition, help is on the way at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under Doctor Akoury’s care. Doctor Akoury is an expert of several decades with experience in matters relating to being overweight, obesity addiction and beauty among many other disciplines. She has been of great help to many people across the globe and your situation will be very safe in her care. You can schedule for an appointment with her even as we get into the discussion about treating nonalcoholic fatty liver and steatohepatitis diseases in this article.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver complications: Treatment solutions

Losing excess weight is the best for treating nonalcoholic fatty liver and steatohepatitis diseases. In one of the studies it was established that among obese individuals with elevated transaminases, weight gain led to an increase in the level of the liver enzymes. The good news is that even with a minimal weight loss of 10% can impact significantly to the decrease in the levels of the enzymes even to the point of being normal. The decrease in enzymes happened at the rate of 8% for every 1% loss of body weight. In another study where patients undergoing stomach (gastric) reduction operations for morbid obesity were involved, substantial weight loss is accompanied by a marked reduction in transaminases and a regression (improvement) of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Besides that, medical professionals are also using certain medications to treating nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Like for instance, insulin-sensitizing agents, like:

  • The thiazolidinedione’s
  • Pioglitazone
  • Rosiglitazone
  • Metformin

These medications do not only help to control blood glucose in patients with diabetes, but they also improve enzyme levels in patients with Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Remember that medications in the statin class of drugs like atorvastatin/Lipitor decrease the bad LDL cholesterol and, improve enzyme levels among patients with atorvastatin. However a lot more needs to be done to establish the accuracy of these medications if they can also reduce the amount of fat and inflammation in the liver.

Even though a lot more is being done towards treating nonalcoholic fatty liver and steatohepatitis diseases, the most appropriate, effective and accurate treatment for obese people with Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is to simply losing weight through good nutrition diet and meaningful engagement in physical activities. Much as one may be willing to effectively lose weight, committing to the weight loss assignment may not be as easy as people may want to believe.

But with sincere conviction, losing weight is very possible. Up on consenting then you can begin the weight loss recovery journey by scheduling an appointment with the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center for the commencement of your recovery process. And in view of the harmful effects of fat in other liver diseases, losing weight forms part of the treatment of other liver diseases which are not necessarily as a result of fat such as hepatitis C. Eventually nonalcoholic steatohepatitis possibly can be prevented and eliminated all together by promoting healthy feeding habits and active lifestyles in children at a tender age.

Addiction

Drug addiction disorders and cancer

Drug addiction disorders

Drug addiction disorders and cancer have nothing good in common

Drug addiction disorders and cancer: Alcohol use and alcoholism

In dealing with drug addiction disorders and cancer disease one patient one asked “does the type of drink matter?” in responds doctor Dalal Akoury says that, it is important to appreciate that ethanol is the type of alcohol found in alcoholic drinks, whether they are beers, wines, or liquors (distilled spirits). These drinks contain different percentages of ethanol, but in general, a standard size drink of any type 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor contains about the same amount of ethanol (about half an ounce). Of course, larger or ‘stronger’ drinks can contain more ethanol than this. Overall, it is all about the amount of alcohol consumed over time, not the type of alcoholic beverage, seems to be the most important factor in raising cancer risk. Most evidence suggests that it is the ethanol that increases the risk, not other things in the drink.

Drug addiction disorders and cancer: How alcohol raise cancer risk

From the experts’ point of view, doctor Dalal Akoury having been in this practice for well over two decades reiterates that, as things stand now, the exact way alcohol affects cancer risk isn’t completely understood. In fact, there might be several different ways it can raise risk, and this might depend on the type of cancer complication in question as we are going to see following. And as we make that progress, it will interest you to note that in order to effectively help addicts recover from their difficulties, Dr. Akoury made a decision to create a medical center whose main objective is to transform each individual’s life through increasing awareness about health and wellness and by empowering individuals to find their own inner healing power. Matters of this magnitude needs serious and professionalism in treatment and that is why doctor Akoury’s practice focuses on personalized medicine through healthy lifestyle choices that deal with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of patching up symptoms. You can reach her on telephone number 843 213 1480 for an appointment and any other concerns you may be having.

Drug addiction disorders and cancer: Damage to body tissues

Finally, alcohol can act as an irritant, especially in the mouth and throat. Cells that are damaged may try to repair themselves, which could lead to DNA changes in the cells that can be a step toward cancer. In the colon and rectum, bacteria can convert alcohol into large amounts of acetaldehyde which is a chemical that has been shown to cause cancer in lab animals. Alcohol and its byproducts can also damage the liver, leading to inflammation and scarring. As liver cells try to repair the damage, they can end up with mistakes in their DNA, which could lead to cancer. We are going to continue this discussion in our subsequent postings and we want to take this opportunity to encourage you to stay with us on the link and learn with the experts.

stem cell therapy

Stem cell therapy can restore function after stroke damage

Recently scientists discovered that a patient could recover, and his or her function can be restored after suffering stroke for a longer period. For this to happen, stem cells in his or her brain have to be stimulated.

Some scientists from UC-Irvine discovered that Transforming Growth Factor-Alpha often abbreviated as TGFa can activated adult stem cells that are in the affected area of the brain to differentiate, move through the brain and last bit not least, repair the damage caused by the stroke.

To prove this can happen, scientists tested a rat that was affected. The Transforming Growth Factor-alpha protein was then injected directly into its brain four weeks after the stroke damage. The recovery was 99%.

Darius Gleason who is a graduate student who was also working on the project mentioned that it is becoming clear that brain isn’t different from any other organ. We just assume that it is somehow superior given to what it can do. The brain is, without a doubt, the organ that decides what the body should do and what it shouldn’t.

Unlike many other organs, a damaged brain is more devastating, in fact, it means the end of your functioning as a human being. However, the latest findings have shown that the brain can indeed repair itself just like any other organ in the body if the stem cells are introduced into it.

A new study recently published that nasal administration of the Transforming Growth Factor-alpha can result in a recovery by 70%. The nasal passage is one of the non-invasive routs that is quite useful for this kind of therapy.

 

stem cell therapy

In the previous years, researchers from Germany proved that administering adult stem cells through the nose was one of the most effective methods. The new finding is proof that using a stimulating factor can also work best to stimulate differentiation of adult stem cells that are already there.

However, there are several trials still going on in Houston that involves infecting the stem cells into the bone marrow of the patients and their circulatory system. The cells have been seen to move to the area of the brain that is affected and immediately they reach there; they activate the repair process. There are still findings not yet confirmed; the existing results are more promising especially for future stroke patients.

The bottom line

A lot is going on in the stem cell world. The discovery of stem cells has opened the eyes of scientist to another level of medicine. Unlike the past, there is a hope that diseases such as cancer that were not curable in the past can now be cured. And now that it can work on the brain to restore functioning after stroke, it is becoming clear that it holds answers to many other fatal complications.

embryonic stem cell

Reasons other countries need stem cell therapy

The claim that embryos are formed in a culture dish from which stem cells are harvested is a big lie no one should fall for. The truth is, stem cells are obtained from the fetuses that are aborted or eggs that are already fertilized but are leftovers obtained from in vitro fertilization. These are issues that were to be thrown away simply because they were not going to become human beings.

Embryonic stem cells however how much politics is trying to put it down, has made future medicine quite hopeful. The moment a patient is diagnosed with cancer whether pancreatic or liver, he or she is unlikely to make it past one year if the traditional methods are used.

If treated using embryonic stem cells and in a good fertility such as Beijing Great Wall International Cancer Centre, he or she has an 80% and above chance of survival. This is one of the things that makes the debates around it quite questionable?

God gave use everything, and now he is giving the world a chance to beat some of the fatal diseases such as cancer that previously had no cure. Why not take it? How the morals are applicable in eliminating what could save millions of lives?

 

embryonic stem cells

The good news is, there are some countries that have taken keen measures to ensure that the patients going through the procedure are safe. Here are some of the reasons it should also be practiced in other countries.

  1. No side effect has been reported since embryonic stem cells stepped into the medicine world. The Beijing Great Wall International Cancer Centre has been using this technology for the year 2003 and had saved up to 10, 000 lives.
  2. The cells are only manufactured under surgical conditions that are sterile and obtained from eggs that are aged between 15 to 56 days.
  3. The processing and testing of each stem cells take up to two months when they are genetically tested for side effects, defects, and any other complications. If found unsuitable for use, they are discarded.
  4. These cells are frozen at a -196 degrees and kept in liquid nitrogen to prevent them from mutating and restored to the normal temperature of the human body before they are transplanted.
  5. Patients are taken through a thorough clinical, diagnostic treatment and medical counseling right after the procedure. One of the good things about embryonic stem cells is that they are hardly rejected by the body.

If you are looking for more information, you can get in touch with the Beijing Great Wall Cancer Centre whose services are now offered in the English language. The portal is named Stem Cell China.
