Remove addiction stigma to enable disease recovery

There has been much work done to separate stigma from the disease of addiction. It is important to remove stigma associated with the disease because stigma stands in the way of talking about it and solving it. Recently, I interacted with someone who apparently has a large family, lives in a nice community, and has a job. He is deeply addicted to opioids.

Looking back: This week in eastern Idaho history

A “moonshine party” turned ugly this week in 1921, with one man charged with shooting and killing another in a field on the west side of the Snake River on July 28. According to the report in the Idaho Republican of Blackfoot, Elmer E. Dory, proprietor of the U.S. Feed Barn in Idaho Falls, and his employee, Roy Pernell, had gone to Blackfoot the previous evening to look at some ponies. On the return trip Thursday, they picked up a man named D. Saunders, and the three men managed to buy some liquor from an unidentified source. “They drove their car into the weeds a short distance from the road, where the shooting took place,” the newspaper report said. “Two boys heard the shot and saw a man throw a gun toward a canal. They rushed immediately to police headquarters and notified the officers, who rushed to the scene and placed the two men under arrest. A physician was called, but Dorey apparently died a few moments after being shot. According to Chief of Police Carlson, Pernell admits firing the shot, claiming that Dorey had made a remark about his wife.”

Infographic: Maternal Microbiota Has Lasting Effects on Offspring

During pregnancy, the body is subject to numerous changes. The composition of the gut microbiome shifts, metabolism changes, and the gut epithelium becomes more permeable. These alterations facilitate interactions between the immune system and gut microbiota, leading to the production of microbe-specific antibodies that are transferred across the placenta to the developing fetus, and later via the milk to the nursing offspring.

House Rejects AOC Amendment To Promote Research Into Psychedelics’ Medical Benefits

The U.S. House of Representatives rejected an amendment on Tuesday that was designed to free up research into the therapeutic potential of psychedelics. The body also addressed several other amendments related to cannabis. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) filed the psychedelics measure, which would remove a 1990s-era provision that’s long been part of spending legislation for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The congresswoman attempted to eliminate the language via an amendment in 2019 only to have it defeated by Republicans as well as a majority of her own party members in a resounding vote of 91-331. Our amendment allows research on whether Schedule I drugs can treat disease. MDMA helps some vets with PTSD. Ibogaine may treat opioid addiction. Marijuana helps cancer & epilepsy patients. But these treatments aren’t available b/c related medical research is effectively banned. pic.twitter.com/4TMcK2fizf — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@RepAOC) July 27, 2021 This time around—amid a growing national movement to reform laws around psychedelics—the chamber rejected it with a narrower 140-285 tally for inclusion as part of a large-scale funding package covering multiple federal agencies. Most Democrats supported the reform in the most recent vote, but enough still sided with the vast majority of Republicans to defeat it. “The United States has and continues to uphold an obsolete provision from the war on drugs,” Ocasio-Cortez said on the floor before the vote. “This provision specifically has for a very long period of time presented and acted as a barricade to federal research on certain substances— psilocybin, MDMA and marijuana—and allowing us to research the potential therapeutic applications of these drugs in the treatment of diseases such as PTSD, addiction and depression. We are long overdue.” Rep. Lou Correa (D-CA) also spoke in support of expanding psychedelic research, saying the substances can “help veterans deal…

Sick Sinus Syndrome Treatment Market Dynamic, Supply and Demand, Revenue Growth 2025

Global Sick Sinus Syndrome Treatment Market: SnapshotSick sinus syndrome is a common type of arrhythmia and is generally an indicator towards a set of signs and symptoms that can tell a doctor whether or not a patient’s sinoatrial node is functioning. The sinoatrial node, or the SA node, is more commonly known as the heart’s original, natural pacemakers, and it releases electrical impulses to the heart’s upper chambers to make them contract at regular intervals. The actual cause of sick sinus syndrome is not known, but common demographics of patients include those above 50. As for treatment, doctors take a symptomatic treatment approach that includes discontinuing medications, foods, and lifestyle choices that can worsen the symptoms. In the event a patient’s sick sinus syndrome causes bradycardia, they are fitted with a pacemaker and are generally prescribed anti-arrhythmic medication. In case a patient suffers from tachycardia through sick sinus syndrome, they may be treated using medications. In some instances, radiofrequency ablation has also shown positive results.
