When we sustain an injury, our body responds in a few ways. One of the most common initial responses is to more or less shut down as a form of self-protection. People who are badly hurt often report some sort of adrenaline rush that makes it so they can’t feel the pain, or they at least can’t feel all of the pain. It’s why you sometimes hear about people who were just in horrific car accidents calmly talking to paramedics even if they have a bone sticking out of their leg. It’s why athletes injured on the playing field may not really recognize the pain until they’re loaded into an ambulance... Read More
Taking different medications regularly, and as recommended by your clinician, is utmost important. It provides you with the best chance to attain the goal of optimal health: no side effects and no interactions.

However, there’s a point at which not speaking at all does more damage than saying something well-intended but not exactly correct. We can’t resolve... Read More
Nutritional ketosis revolves around a high fat diet, and this can potentially ease the symptoms of diabetes. Though a low-carbohydrate diet wouldn’t usually be recommended, if nutritional ketosis can reverse type 2 diabetes, it’s worth experimenting.

Research is in the early stages, so it’s important to introduce changes gradually if you intend on sampling this approach, and you might want to contact... Read More

Hair loss affects people of all races. And like any other race, Black men may experience hair loss for the same causes. Although Black men are known for their Afro-textured hair—which appears to be denser than Caucasian hair—they are reported to actually experience balding and hair thinning before the age of 30.
