Help For Persistent Or Recurring Swelling

Like the arteries, veins and capillaries that transport blood through our bodies, our bodies also contain an extensive drainage system that returns water and proteins from our tissues back to the bloodstream.

Healing Heartburn Holistically

Everyone at some point in time has experienced some form of heartburn. Often, what we notice is a bitter, sour or acid taste in our mouths. At times, we may feel as if partially digested foods or liquids are moving from our stomach back towards our mouth. Sometimes we may also experience chest pain that increases when we lay down. Each of these is an indication of heartburn.

'Heart Attack Gene' Discovered at Cleveland Clinic Exists in 1-2% of U.S. Heart Attack, Coronary Artery Disease

New Clinic Research Advances Efforts to Understand Genetics of Heart Disease. In November 2003, Cleveland Clinic researchers announced the discovery of the first gene confirmed as a cause of coronary heart disease in humans. Less than a year later, their studies indicate this "heart attack gene" is more prevalent among Americans than expected.\n

Is your heartburn really heartburn?

If you rely on medicine for relief of persistent heartburn, acid regurgitation, excessive burping or belching, increased abdominal bloating, nausea, feeling of abnormal or slow digestion or feeling full early on during a meal, you might be one of eight million Canadians who suffer from upper gastrointestinal symptoms and underlying disease.

Teaching the Person with Alzheimer's Disease

Men and women with early Alzheimer's disease may learn new skills from mental training exercises, a new study reports. The benefits may help them to recall important information and better go about their daily tasks, improvements that may ease the burden somewhat for caregivers, at least in the short-term.

Alzheimer's May Preserve Certain Memory Skills

The ability to retain rote memory skills may remain more intact than other kinds of memory in persons with early Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports. The findings could lead to improved strategies for tending to and caring for a loved one with the debilitating memory-robbing illness, report researchers from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Signs and Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) can be a frightening and unpredictable disease. It is a disease that affects an estimated 50,000 Canadians and three more are diagnosed every day. MS signs and symptoms may differ greatly from person to person and over the course of the disease depending on the location of affected nerve fibers.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) can be a frightening and unpredictable disease. It is a disease that affects an estimated 50,000 Canadians and three more are diagnosed every day. Multiple sclerosis is commonly diagnosed in young adults between the ages of 20 and 40 - the years when most are beginning their careers or building a family. It is a disease that can strike without warning and symptoms can often go unnoticed for several months or years.

Although symptoms vary, listed below are symptoms that people with MS usually experience over the course of their disease:

Alzheimer Disease and Antioxidants

At the present time, one out of ten adults have some form of Alzheimer disease. According to Dr. Greengard, Director of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research at the Rockefeller University, that number is expected to strike up to three times as many in the coming decades. Alzheimer's is considered a disease of the elderly and with the average lifespan of the US population rising to 74, a solution to the medical problem is being sought.
