Severe Morning Sickness – The Royal Treatment

If there was one thing about pregnancy that expectant mom Melody Ariza couldn’t stomach, it had to be morning sickness.

“It was horrible. Horrible. From I mean the moment I would walk up until when I was going to bed,” Ariza says.

A common complaint from soon-to-be moms – between 70 and 90% will get a taste. For some, it gets much worse.

“There is a small percentage of women, anywhere from about 1-3% of women, who have excessive amounts of nausea and vomiting – called hyperemesis gravid arum,” explains Tammy Luettich. She is a certified nurse midwife with Lee Memorial Health System.

Hyperemesis gravid arum or severe morning sickness recently got the royal treatment when Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was hospitalized for the condition. The extreme symptoms can be dangerous.

“Especially if they start having a significant amount of weight loss, changes in the electrolytes in their blood counts, then we might want to consider hospitalization,” says Luettich

In most women, morning sickness subsides after the first trimester. That’s not the case with hyperemesis. It typically lasts throughout. The challenge is to stay hydrated and maintain proper weight. Last year the FDA approved a drug that may allow severe sufferers to stay home.

“It’s called Diclegis. It’s actually considered a category A, meaning there have been studies to show that it is safe to take for the baby during pregnancy. It’s simply vitamin B6 and an over-the-counter antihistamine.”

Part of a conservative management plan that includes eating several small meals and avoiding smells that bring on nausea and consuming low-fat, easy to digest foods. Diet tips many moms try.

“If it wasn’t like a piece of bread, some toast or something I was just scared to eat it.,” says Ariza.

Likely linked to hormones, severe morning sickness seems to run in families. And once you have the title, you own it.

“It has about an 80% recurrence with every pregnancy. So there’s a small chance they might not have it the next time but most likely they are going to,” says Luettich.

While you may not be a future queen, it’s possible to spend your pregnancy like a royal.

Laser Treatment To Get Rid Of Acne & Acne Scars We are going to talk about how our multiple modality approach to get rid of acne and acne scars utilizing a combination of laser technologies and other treatment options will achieve the best possible results for your skin.

We have performed 1000s of treatments for acne and acne scarring on the face, neck, shoulders and back over the past 15 years. From mild acne that appears as pimples or white heads prior to a woman’s period then suddenly disappears, to severe cystic acne on the face, neck, shoulders and back that was truly destroying the patient’s skin leaving behind deep scars. We have worked with the most advanced medical lasers as well as every conventional acne treatment option there is, including pharmaceuticals such as Accutane. Our exploration into the best way to get rid of acne and the subsequent scarring has also lead us to explore non-conventional acne therapies such as acupuncture, herbs, essential oils, diet and homeopathic treatments. We have even investigated the old wives’ tales about how to cure acne that our grandmothers taught us. Unfortunately, few of these various treatments for acne are scientifically developed or medically proven. Many, if not most of these treatments, do not work at all. Fortunately, we have discovered what treatments work and what treatments do not. By combining these conventional, alternative and laser acne treatments into a coordinated multiple modality protocol, we have been able to get rid of acne and acne scarring for nearly all of our patients. The best treatment we have found for acne are treatments that utilize lasers. For nine years we have tracked our patients that have undergone laser treatments for their acne and most have not had a recurrence.

The treatments for acne are amazingly quite simple, though the discovery of the most effective protocol took years of research. 3-5 laser treatments are typically needed depending on the responsiveness of your physiology, the severity of the acne and the depth of the acne scars. During treatment, 3 different lasers are used to get rid of your acne once and for all.

The first laser targets sebaceous glands. This shuts down the over production of sebum. When these glands become overactive they grow too many sebum producing cells which causes large numbers of these cells to die. These dead cells are the white gunk that comes out when you squeeze a pimple.

The second laser targets inflammation. An inflammatory immune reaction is the body’s natural response to bacterial infection. This is what causes pimples to appear red and swollen. Much of the scarring that is associated with cystic acne is caused by this inflammation. Healing of the cystic acne is greatly accelerated when the immune response is shut down.

The third laser targets the uppermost dead skin layer of the epithelium. By removing this layer of skin the pores are able to breath and expel any trapped sebum. Treated sebaceous glands will often purge their excess contents so this is particularly important following the first laser treatment. This will also stimulate the renewal of your entire epithelium revealing a bright new acne free epithelium underneath.

Photodynamic therapy may also be used for those with severe cystic acne. We have found that PDT combined with other specific acne treatments will cure even the most severe cases of cystic acne on the face 95% of the time. Photodynamic therapy is based on a natural biochemical reaction that is already taking place in the sebaceous glands. PDT shuts down the hyperactivity and overgrowth of sebaceous glands by amplifying this biochemical reaction. The Porphyrin molecule is at the heart of this biochemistry. When activated by specific frequencies of light, porphyrins present in sebaceous glands release a singlet oxygen atom that quickly kills other living cells.

What is CANKER SORES? Causes, Signs and Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment.

Canker sores is a common condition characterized by the repeated formation of benign and non-contagious mouth ulcers (aphthae) in otherwise healthy individuals. The informal term canker sores is also used, mainly in North America, although this may also refer to any mouth ulcer.

The cause is not completely understood, but involves a T cell-mediated immune response triggered by a variety of factors. Different individuals have different triggers, which may include nutritional deficiencies, local trauma, stress, hormonal influences, allergies, or genetic predisposition.

These ulcers occur periodically and heal completely between attacks. In the majority of cases, the individual ulcers last about 7–10 days, and ulceration episodes occur 3–6 times per year. Most appear on the non-keratinizing epithelial surfaces in the mouth (i.e. anywhere except the attached gingiva, the hard palate and the dorsum of the tongue), although the more severe forms, which are less common, may also involve keratinizing epithelial surfaces. Symptoms range from a minor nuisance to interfering with eating and drinking. The severe forms may be debilitating, even causing weight loss due to malnutrition.

The condition is very common, affecting about 20% of the general population to some degree.[1] The onset is often during childhood or adolescence, and the condition usually lasts for several years before gradually disappearing. There is no cure, and treatments aim to manage pain, reduce healing time and reduce the frequency of episodes of ulceration. The term is from Greek: αφθα aphtha meaning “mouth ulcer”.

What is Diarrhoea? Causes, Signs and Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment.

Diarrhea, also spelled diarrhoea, is the condition of having at least three loose or liquid bowel movements each day. It often lasts for a few days and can result in dehydration due to fluid loss. Signs of dehydration often begin with loss of the normal stretchiness of the skin and irritable behaviour. This can progress to decreased urination, loss of skin color, a fast heart rate, and a decrease in responsiveness as it becomes more severe. Loose but non-watery stools in babies who are exclusively breastfed, however, are normal.

The most common cause is an infection of the intestines due to either a virus, bacteria, or parasite – a condition also known as gastroenteritis.[2] These infections are often acquired from food or water that has been contaminated by feces, or directly from another person who is infected. The three types of diarrhea are: short duration watery diarrhea, short duration bloody diarrhea, and persistent diarrhea (lasting more than two weeks).The short duration watery diarrhea may be due to an infection by cholera, although this is rare in the developed world. If blood is present it is also known as dysentery. A number of non-infectious causes can result in diarrhea. These include lactose intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, hyperthyroidism, bile acid diarrhea, and a number of medications.In most cases, stool cultures to confirm the exact cause are not required.
