The brain is one of the most important part of the body. Since it’s so important, keeping it healthy should be a priority. The following is an outline of the ways one can keep the brain healthy. Exercising Aerobic training has been found to increase connectivity in the temporal lobe in a year, in a group of college-aged young adults by simply walking. Meanwhile, a more vigorous intensity aerobic exercise, like running for 30 minutes, led to faster reaction times and vocabulary learning. Women who were aged 65 and over were less likely to develop cognitive decline if they were physically active.
The mental benefits of exercise are not just for adults, but for kids, too. Exercise is crucial for kids’ developing brains. Those who get more exercise tend to get better grades, have better concentration, and even get a better night’s sleep. Exercise also spurs the development of new nerve cells and increases the connections between brain cells (synapses). This results in brains that are more efficient, plastic, and adaptive, which translates into better performance in aging animals. Exercise also lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol levels, fights diabetes, and reduces mental stress, all of which can help your brain as well as your heart. Continue reading →
Everyone at some point in life has felt stressed, stress can be considered part of life. All animals have stress response, which can save their lives.
The nerve chemicals and hormones released during stressful times, prepares the animal to face a threat or flee to safety.
However, with chronic stress, those same nerve chemicals that are life-saving in short bursts can suppress functions that aren’t needed for immediate survival. Your immunity is lowered and your digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems stop working normally. Once the threat has passed, other body systems act to restore normal functioning.
Examples on how the Internet of Things will revolutionize Medicine
The U.S. healthcare system is in transition from a doctor-centric model to a “smart patient” disease prevention and wellness self-care system that increasingly is empowering patients to monitor and help manage their health status. Many individuals pursue a daily health and fitness regimen with the help of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) – one of the important facets of the better-known Internet of Things (IoT). Smart patients, armed with advanced body sensors, will revolutionize the medical industry in patient care and reduce rising healthcare costs by plugging into today’s widening array of digital wireless smartphones and sensors.
“Globalization” increasingly is about the converging environmental crises of the 21st century instead of about the world’s ever more globally interconnected economy.
Cases in point: Anthropogenic climate change, the continuing avalanche of the human population explosion, the looming global food crisis, intensive chemical farming practices and soil depletion, and California’s long-term drought. As these crises and challenges worsen, they are accelerating creative solutions — in the case of agriculture and food, the aeroponics-enabled water-wise and soil-less vertical greenhouse farm-in-the-city trend. Urban farmers are growing herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, and more in soil-less aeroponics tower gardens in small backyard and spacious warehouses, on balconies and high-rise rooftops, and in high-tech greenhouses.

While these terms are often used to mean the array of health care approaches with a history of use or origins outside of mainstream medicine, they are actually hard to define and may mean different things to different people. Continue reading →
