A minimally invasive technique for aortic valve replacement has emerged as one of the most exciting innovations in heart care in decades.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) allows doctors to insert a prosthetic valve inside a damaged valve in the cath lab. It’s a lifesaving option for patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS), for whom surgery is considered too risky. But it’s not yet ready for everyone.
The mobile health industry has been revolutionizing the way both doctors and patients approach medicine today. When it comes to addressing health issues, mobile health consumers are moving toward preventing disease and increasing fitness and wellness. Through fitness trackers and wearable devices, more patients are now focused on exercise and diet.
The company Research Now conducted a survey that looked at how mobile health applications and the mobile health industry is affecting patient care and physician workflow. Research Now polled a total of 1,000 mHealth app users and 500 medical professionals. The results show that 86 percent of healthcare professionals believe mobile health apps increase their knowledge on a patient’s medical condition.

If products containing asbestos are disturbed, the tiny fibers are released into the air. When they are breathed in, they can become trapped in the lungs and stay there for many years. Over time these fibers can accumulate and lead to serious health problems, including:
* Asbestosis, an inflammatory condition of lungs that can cause shortness of breath, coughing, and eventually scarring of the lungs that makes it hard to breathe.
* Mesothelioma, a rare cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, chest cavity, or abdomen.
* Lung cancer.
* Other lung problems, including pleural plaques (changes in the membranes surrounding the lungs), thickening of the membranes that surround the lungs, and pleural effusions (abnormal collections of fluid between the lungs and the inside wall of the chest.
Simple dietary adjustments such as boosting omega-3 fatty acid, olive oil and nut intake have all been associated with significant, positive changes to heart health in a short time, say the researchers in an editorial in the journal Open Heart.

“It’s one of the most rehabilitating supplements I’ve ever come across”, he told me.
ENADA has actually changed names and is now known as Co-E1 NADH. It’s an unwieldy name, but a terrific product. People who love it have called it “: biological rocket fuel”. A number of studies have shown that it can significantly improve at least four recognized symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, including unexplained tiredness, difficulty thinking, sleep disturbances, and headaches or sore throats.
Researchers at the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center, Weill Cornell Medical College, found that it significantly improved measures of cognitive performance following a night of total sleep deprivation. Athletes use Co-E1 NADH to increase muscular energy supply. My friend Oz uses it all the time before he goes running.
