Diet and lifestyle in the treatment of prostate cancer Prostate cancer treatment may include: • watchful waiting • hormone therapy • surgery • chemotherapy • radiation • other forms of treatment *********************************************************************** https://youtu.be/RdmiVBu4bAA - Diet and lifestyle in the treatment of prostate cancer http://best-pills.site/en/products/erectile-dysfunction.html - Erectile Dysfunction Pills - Cialis Black, Viagra Gold, Kamagra Effervescent, AVANA, Extra Super Lovevitra, Kamagra Chewable, Kamagra Polo, Levitra Plus, Levitra Super Active, Malegra DXT, Malegra FXT, Sildalis, Super Kamagra... Pills for erectile dysfunction (ED) are classified as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors and help increase blood flow to the penis. More specifically, these drugs increase the amount of nitric oxide in the body. The nitric oxide works with other substances to relax and open blood vessels so that blood can flow more freely, leading to a satisfactory erection. *********************************************************************** Some of these treatments may have side effects, such as fatigue, nausea, or loss of appetite. Maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle during treatment may sometimes be challenging. But it is achievable and may help to avoid recurrence of the disease. Diet is only part of a healthy lifestyle. Here are a few other action items to keep in mind: • Keep active by maintaining a social calendar or attending a support group. • Maintain a healthy weight. Obesity has been linked to adverse outcomes in men with prostate cancer. • Find an exercise you enjoy and make it part of your regular routine. Walking, swimming, and lifting weights are all good choices. • Eliminate or reduce use of tobacco products, such as cigarettes. • Eliminate or reduce alcohol consumption.

This video explains the benefits of writing therapy for people dealing with cancer. This video introduces writing exercises designed to unleash the therapeutic process through expressing feelings that were otherwise unable to be expressed. Studies and clinical trials are showing that writing about traumas and difficult experiences results in better outcomes for people dealing with chronic and serious illnesses. Both physical and mental health can be improved. Writing therapy can also be very helpful for caregivers or loved ones who are also dealing with the emotional trauma of cancer.

Enjoy this presentation which took place at our Second Annual National Caregiving Conference which happened November 10 and 11 in Chicago. (Want more? Purchase our package of recorded sessions: https://www.caregiving.com/ncc17/session/ In 2015, nearly 16 million caregivers provided over 18 billion hours of unpaid care to those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Despite these staggering figures, a majority of caregivers lack training and adequate skills in dementia care. Recent reports cite that 75% of caregivers feel frustrated and overwhelmed, 92% need information related to the use of non-medication approaches for managing behavioral symptoms2, and that training in communication and person-centered approaches are required3. Despite the availability of numerous training and educational programs, less than 3% of person-centered intervention and training manuals are evidence-based. In this discussion, panelists will explore innovative approaches to activating caregivers of people living with dementia early in their caregiving journey. Solutions to activate these caregivers should provide value not only to those who receive care but also protect caregivers against burnout, stress and mental health concerns, such as depression and anxiety. Three learning objectives: 1. Understand the various challenges caregivers confront in supporting those with dementia 2. Discuss an evidence-based approach to activating caregivers that positively impacts dementia care 3. Learn about innovative approaches and therapies in dementia care Panelists: --Jay V. Patel, Clinical Transformation Officer, Seniorlink (moderator) --Ted Fisher, Vice President of Business Development, Hasbro --Sharon Hall, Caregiver and Blogger at CareGiving.com

This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish In June of nineteen eighty-one, public health officials in the United States reported on the first cases of what came to be known as AIDS. Thirty years later, there is growing progress against the epidemic of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. But today an estimated sixteen and a half million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS. Most of these AIDS orphans live in sub-Saharan Africa. And millions more children live with adults who are sick from AIDS.Lucie Cluver from Oxford University in England has studied AIDS orphans and children living with sick adults in South Africa. She says the mental health of children in these situations can be deeply affected. For example, AIDS-orphaned children have higher levels of depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder than children whose parents have died of other causes.Lucie Cluver wrote about this problem in the journal Nature to mark the thirtieth anniversary of AIDS. She says children have to live with the stigma, the sense of shame connected to AIDS. Many are bullied at school or excluded from the community. At home, children living with a sick adult are more likely to live in poverty and face physical and emotional abuse. Also, Lucie Cluver says the children often become the caregivers. They worry and feel responsible for the health of the sick person. "They're missing school to go and get medication. They're washing the sick person. They're often taking them to the toilet, cleaning their wounds or washing their bedclothes." Close contact with sick adults can sometimes spread tuberculosis or other diseases. And Lucie Cluver's research suggests that psychological problems increase as AIDS orphans get older.Writing in Nature, she called for testing more children for tuberculosis. She also called for giving more parents the drugs needed to keep them healthy longer with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. There are programs to help children, but Lucie Cluver says there is "far more to be done." She says interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy and support groups are "urgently needed" for those orphaned by AIDS or living with sick adults. But the evidence for which interventions are effective "is still thin," she says.For VOA Special English, I'm Alex Villarreal.

Understanding and Supporting Children Struggling with Anxiety Dr.Vanessa Lapointe, Wishing Star Clinic, Surrey, BC As parents, teachers, and other “big people” become increasingly concerned about their children and the functional daily impact of anxiety, our efforts can turn almost frantic as we try to glean helpful, supportive information that seems to be available everywhere! Too often this results in ‘quick-fix’ approaches to ‘solving’ anxiety, rather than inviting a gentle, contemplative approach that is informed by the science of child development. This talk will focus on making sense of the world of anxiety and use our understanding to inform knowledgeable responses and supports for the children who are growing up who might be struggling with too much worry. The goal will be to provide participants with a developmentally-sensitive approach to understanding the worry and transforming it to wonder.

Jessica Goldberg, MSN, adult gerontology nurse practitioner, fellow in palliative medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the results of a study where a cancer self-management intervention was created for patients with breast cancer. Goldberg says this multiyear study started out with needs assessment interviews with cancer patients who had breast and ovarian cancer to gather what their self-management needs were. Goldberg and her colleagues created modules based on the feedback from the interviews and other research. Once the modules were created, a focus group of 6 patients was selected to give feedback before using the modules in a series of other studies, Goldberg says. Goldberg says the results showed that the self-management needs of the patient differed depending on their stage. The results showed that stage IV patients used the the care options module the most while the stage I, II, and III patients most frequently used the “managing transition” module. Goldberg says this shows that patients’ needs differ depending on where they are in their trajectory of cancer.

Pakistan is one of five countries with the highest projected increase in prevalence of dementia in the Asia Pacific region (Access Economic, 2006). There is a lack of structured support network for caregivers in general and for dementia caregivers in specific. The caregivers and other related individuals predominantly rely on traditional familial support for caregiving. This approach places immense burden on the familial caregivers (Shaji, 2009). In Pakistan, there is paucity of research evidence on care of dementia patients and the need of caregivers dealing with such patients. This study explores awareness among caregivers, their attitude towards family members suffering from dementia and their experience of burden. In-depth interviews were conducted with twelve caregivers of diagnosed patients of dementia in Rawalpindi/ Islamabad, Pakistan. There was a considerable lack of awareness about dementia as an illness among the caregivers. They reported a conflict between the emotional and religious commitment to nurture the elderly relative and their experience of psychological, physical and economic burden, resulting in occasional episodes of carelessness and violence towards them. The study indicated that women, particularly those who were employed outside of the home, reported higher levels of stress. It is suggested that support from extended family in all forms was perceived as a concrete form of stress relief by the primary caregiver. The findings of this study imply that the social and financial burden of dementia on families of caregivers in Pakistan may be exacerbated if they do not have support. This indicates a need for multipronged intervention from the government and non-government organizations as well as the community to develop programs for caregivers which are nested within the cultural context of filial piety in Pakistan. These strategies should also be gender sensitive, giving priority to more at risk groups.

Would you be more active if you knew it could help you to live longer? A recent study found that people who engaged in leisure-time physical activity lowered the risk of premature mortality and increased life expectancy by as much as 4.5 years. Other recent surveys have shown that not only does regular physical activity benefit overall health, improve sleep, help to maintain a healthy weight, manage stress and improve quality of life, it can also have a large impact on reducing risk of long term health conditions and chances of some cancers occurring by as much as 20%, including breast and colon cancer, and helps reduces recurrences during and after treatment. According to Cancer Research UK, around 3,400 cases of cancer in the UK each year could be prevented by keeping active. The more active you are, the better – whether that’s walking, taking the stairs or jogging… brisk walking, cycling and even housework can all count as ways to be active.” Keeping active is easier than you think. Any activity is better than a doing nothing. Start off with low impact activities like walking, cycling and swimming, and build up your fitness over time into a regular pattern of exercise. Regular activity is also a vital part of keeping well before during and after treatment for cancer. Macmillan Cancer Support states that “Physical activity is important for cancer patients at all stages of the cancer care pathway. There is evidence to support the role of physical activity for all stages of the cancer care pathway. We have a wide range of activities available through the Cancer Information Centre at Ipswich Hospital which can be tailored to your individual needs.Please contact us on 01473 715748 if you would like more information.

There are nearly 2.6 million people in Australia who are carers. Carers provide unpaid care and support to people who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness or who are frail. These people may not call themselves 'carers'; they are partners, parents, siblings, relatives, other family members and/or friends. Carers come from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. They may be working or studying, as well as providing care. They may be any age. Caring can be a demanding role that requires mental and physical energy, commitment and dedication. Carers in outer regional and remote areas experience higher rates of disability or a long-term health condition themselves, and are more likely to experience financial hardship than carers in major cities. Indigenous people in rural and remote Australia are also more likely to be carers than non-Indigenous people in these areas. Caring for a person with a mental illness has particular challenges. The episodic nature of mental illness, the stigma still associated with it, the symptoms of the illness, and the struggle to obtain appropriate treatment and care for a family member or friend, can all contribute to a carer feeling overwhelmed. Carers need strategies to manage these challenges. Their experiences can predispose carers to mental illness themselves. In 2007, carers were found to have the lowest wellbeing of any large group recorded by the Australian Unity Wellbeing Index in The Wellbeing of Australians: Carer Health and Wellbeing. This program covers two main areas. Firstly, it discusses the experiences and particular challenges for carers supporting a person with mental health problems. The importance of carers as part of the care team, and useful strategies for supporting a person with a mental illness are included. Secondly, the program acknowledges the impact of caring on the carer's physical and mental health. It assists health practitioners to develop practical ways to support and encourage carers to look after themselves. Support, counselling and respite services are also examined. The program is introduced by Joan Hughes, CEO of Carers Australia. Produced by the Rural Health Education Foundation http://www.rhef.com.au/

The MIND diet: 10 foods that fight Alzheimer's (and 5 to avoid) Doctors have been saying for years that what you eat can affect the health of your heart. Now there's growing evidence that the same is true for your brain. A new study by researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago shows a diet plan they developed -- appropriately called the MIND diet -- may reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by as much as 53 percent. Even those who didn't stick to the diet perfectly but followed it "moderately well" reduced their risk of Alzheimer's by about a third. Diet appears to be just one of "many factors that play into who gets the disease," said nutritional epidemiologist Martha Clare Morris, PhD, the lead author of the MIND diet study. Genetics and other factors like smoking, exercise and education also play a role. But the MIND diet helped slow the rate of cognitive decline and protect against Alzheimer's regardless of other risk factors. The study, published in the journal Alzheimer's & Dementia, looked at more than 900 people between the ages of 58 and 98 who filled out food questionnaires and underwent repeated neurological testing. It found participants whose diets most closely followed the MIND recommendations had a level of cognitive function the equivalent of a person 7.5 years younger. The MIND diet breaks its recommendations down into 10 "brain healthy food groups" a person should eat and five "unhealthy food groups" to avoid. It combines many elements of two other popular nutrition plans which have been proven to benefit heart health: the Mediterranean diet and the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. (MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay.) But the MIND diet also differs from those plans in a few significant ways and proved more effective than either of them at reducing the risk of Alzheimer's. Green leafy vegetables The MIND diet recommends frequent servings of green leafy vegetables. Kale, spinach, broccoli, collards and other greens are packed with vitamins A and C and other nutrients. At least two servings a week can help, and researchers found six or more servings a week provide the greatest brain benefits. The Mediterranean and DASH diets do not specifically recommend these types of vegetables, but the MIND diet study found that including greens in addition to other veggies made a difference in reducing the risk of Alzheimer's. Other vegetables Like other diets focused on weight loss and heart health, the MIND diet emphasizes the importance of vegetables for brain health. The researchers recommend eating a salad and at least one other vegetable every day to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's. Nuts Nuts are a good snack for brain health, according to the MIND diet study. Nuts contain healthy fats, fiber and antioxidants, and other studies have found they can help lower bad cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. The MIND diet recommends eating nuts at least five times a week. Berries Berries are the only fruit specifically recommended in the MIND diet. "Blueberries are one of the more potent foods in terms of protecting the brain," Morris said. She noted that strawberries have also shown benefits in past studies looking at the effect of food on cognitive function. The MIND diet recommends eating berries at least twice a week. Beans If beans aren't a regular part of your diet, they should be. High in fiber and protein, and low in calories and fat, they also help keep your mind sharp as part of the MIND diet. The researchers recommend eating beans three times a week to help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's. Whole grains Whole grains are a key component of the MIND diet. It recommends at least three servings a day. Fish The MIND diet study found eating fish at least once a week helps protect brain function. However, there's no need to go overboard; unlike the Mediterranean diet, which recommends eating fish almost every day, the MIND diet says once a week is enough. Poultry Poultry is another part of a brain-healthy eating plan, according to the MIND diet. It recommends two or more servings a week. Olive oil Olive oil beat out other forms of cooking oil and fats in the MIND diet.

September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana. Khelsilem Rivers is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw language revitalization activist from Vancouver.
