Today’s Breakthroughs: Tomorrow’s Cures

     Calling bingo at the Mayflower is quite a treat…everyone is over 85 years old and every single one of them thinks they are my boss! Thank heavens, I find it very entertaining…I encourage you to try it at a nursing home near you because the residents love the attention and you just might enjoy it as much as I do.

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      When an MRI revealed a tiny cyst in her brain on the pineal gland, Kim Frasca finally found Dr Dong H. Kim at UT Health Medical School in Houston. Neither her neurologist nor her endocrinologist knew anything to help her so she found Dr Kim on her own and she says “Dr Kim saved my life!”
  •      Ben Lee has also had a long time to deal with his health trouble. His aortic valve stopped working properly and he found Dr J. Kevin Harrison at my alma mater, Duke University, to use the CoreValve to place over his own diseased valve. The FDA has now approved it for exteme risk patients as well as high risk patients.
  •      Dawn Lichtenberg is very happy with the treatment she received from Dr Craig Vander Kolk at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. It is called Ultherapy and uses ultrasound energy to heat up layers of tissue which then shrink and tighten. It is totally non-invasive and works on the neck, cheek, jawline and eyebrows.

     Every parent should read our report, “Over-Caffeinated Kids?” to remind themselves to avoid certain drinks for their kids. Dr. Metee Comkornruecha at Miami Children’s Hospital warns about the power of advertising and also how caffeine can be an appetite stimulant. Every medical professional may want to visit Deborah Sutherland, CEO of USF Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS). They train on every type of new procedure that comes out and have had 4,300 visitors from 60 countries so far. More training might mean fewer medical mistakes that kill people…

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesReset Your Face Premium Content in ArchivesNot Enough Vitamin B1 Can Cause Brain Damage. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     Keep an eye out for a remarkable young man in case he comes rolling through your community. His name is Thomas Cantley and he started an education movement called I Am Ballsy to document his journey of survival after having stage three testicular cancer. This is a good video to watch on our YouTube channel

And there's more where that came from...
