Do not engage the clamp poster (https://pastebin.com/aYNv0zFc).

Don't start discussing pro- and anti-vax shit because it degenerates and takes a lot of replies.

One of the main issues with curcumin is there is plenty of evidence that it works but the bioavilability if very low.

What can I do to be more empathetic to patients? I've found that when they lay some heavy shit on me I just don't know what the fuck to say. For example I asked a patient how he was and he pretty much said 'not good' and that he had a bunch of shit on his liver and was in his late 40's. I didn't know how the fuck to respond and just muttered something about being sorry before doing what I needed to do. I really wish I could've shown more empathy to the poor bastard but I just didn't know what to say. I'm mostly used to dealing with fat boomers complaining that their legs hurt for some mysterious reason and displaying fake empathy to that.

i suspected hyperhidrosis, hence the question

moisture-wicking socks, absorbent soles, wearing non-occlusive footwear (avoid boots and sports shoes, leather shoes are good) are good measures that aren't pharmacological

like the other anon said, there's aluminium-based antiperspirants, and anti-cholinergics are available but bad side effects (dry mouth, urinary retention, blurred vision, constipation)

other specialist treatments like iontophoresis, botulinum A toxin and eta (endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy) are all viable options but the side effects are numerous, and are undesirable. before going down these routes, I would suggest starting with changing your socks and shoes, and then on drugs if need be. i will also post this reply in the new thread, in case you're active in that thread. best of luck anon

Forgot to address this.

Do you have any evidence that ibuprofen for example offers any advantages over natural medicines beyond cost effectiveness?

Because lets all be honest. A lot of these drugs are only used because extractions are already being done on poppies to make morphine. It is very cost effective to use the other chemicals instead of just throwing them away even if there are better options.

Don't forget artificial breaking of the water which begins lung changeover before the child has even begun to leave the womb, followed by early clamping of the umbilical cord. Maybe all this happened after pitocin, which uses the child's head as a battering ram against a birth canal which is not prepared, net reduces total transplacental blood flow, and causes repeated cranial blood pressure spikes in the infant. Which causes the blood vessels to constrict, further reducing cerebral blood flow.

Then they clean out the eyes with vaseline and or silver nitrate, preventing the child from seeing its parents. They inject vitamin K. They inject hep B vaccination. They take the males and strap them into a circumstraint then amputate parts of their penis, putting its cortisol etc way up.

This is incompetence to the point of evil. Failure to acknowledge our barbarism means inevitable collapse. Birth trauma is quite real, and it's not the birth itself, it's the fucked up shit they do to us during and after. Perinatal period = ideal window for traumatizing an animal.

Unfortunately I know a bit too much about the history of human organizational and control structures to delude myself into thinking there's a single clear solution, especially when you have centralized formulation and enforcement of some system. In an ideal world, with legitimate and rational human beings free from corruption and personal hangups, a massive review of every step of the birthing process and the associated literature would be conducted and evaluated against common sense, historical practices and documents (dating back to ancient Greece, which say eg not to clamp early), and knowledge of neonatal anatomy and physiology. Multiple guidelines branches would be formulated for common aberrations.

The penalty for failing to do your job would be loss of ability to practice and a wide open door for state subsidized criminal prosecution. The issue is systems like these are always corrupted and weaponized over time, so in actual practice I have to fall back on my earliest idea, which is increasing the awareness and intelligence of the general population and crafting a culture of disgust over tolerance. Where certain functional standards not being met will evoke pity and disgust. We don't have that now, we have pretense and blanket acceptance of mediocrity.

Your actual question I think refers to how a birth should be done, and you've used the correct term "overseen" as the only one delivering a child is the mother and to an extent the father. Subject is too broad to go into deeply and it can only devolve into "yeah but what if X?" and indirectly justifying existing practices instead of a focus on creating or refining methods and mindsets.

>>10911982
Cesarean section has its own issues. You avoid compressing the skull and creating vascular microhemmorages etc, but there's a tendency to use epidurals which do often make it into the child, and proceed to suppress breathing and heart rate. Therefore they will immediately clamp the cord.

Look at the vague and distancing language used in the press release. It says it all.

>Delayed umbilical cord clamping appears to be beneficial

"Delayed" (veruses what, "done correctly"?)

>which may have a favorable effect on developmental outcomes
"may"
could, may, might. (Does)

>There is a small increase in jaundice that requires phototherapy in this group of infants.
This is false. Refer to the cochrane review I've linked before, or do some reading. The aspects measured and reported in those studies are inadequate to determine causes. Here's some other things associated with neonatal jaundice.
-Pitocin
-Lack of colostrum consumption
-Trauma such as that of circumcision
-Hepatitis B vaccination.

>The ability to provide delayed umbilical cord clamping may vary among institutions and settings;
More justifying. Not clamping the umbilical cord involves not clamping the umbilical cord, like we did for our entire history.

They've essentially said "well you shouldn't, but you can..." Let's get real, they had their way with us and fucked up, and continue to do so to the very instant. They don't want liability or being found out, so they're in a fix. We have among the highest maternal and infant MORTALITY in the developed world. We're like 37th or something.

35 years old. I've got pain at the site of the injury and also neurophatic pain radiating from the injury to my abdomen and also circling around my chest.
The neuropatic pain worsens considerably when I turn my head down and when I sit, and it is at is worst if I sit and simultaneusly turn my head down. If I lie on my back and I use a pillow, causing my neck to bend forward, the pain worsens too. Thank you for your attention, and sorry about my english, it's not my primary language

Disk hernias are shitty. From what I've heard conservative treatment is mainly symptomatic. Surgery is advised only when everything fails.

I would take some ibuprofen (or meloxicam if you can get it since it's once daily) and do yoga and see if it helps. If you find that your symptoms do not get better, talk surgical options, they may be able to simply remove the part of the disk that's herniated and leave some intact sparing you the shittiness of having a fusion.

If you find that the pain at the site gets better after stretches and taking NSAIDS, you may be able to simply have them destroy the nerves that handle cutaneous sensation to your chest and not have to worry about the nerve pain anymore. Fortunately dorsal roots only handle sensation.

Anon, I've been on Isotretinoin for 2 months now. At the beginning of the treatment, I got a big cystic pimple, which to this day hasn't gone away. It's gotten smaller, a little bit of shit has come out of it, but it's fucking still there despite my face getting pretty much clear now.
Dermatologists over here in my shithole suck, it's my fifth one, and literally none of them even mentioned Isotretinoin, so I had to google and read about it myself and then ask the doctor to prescribe it to me.
I'm honestly getting depressed at this point (no, I don't think it's one of Isotretinoin's side affects in this case) because I'm so over this. Can I apply benzoyl peroxide? Will it do anything? My skin isn't super dry, so I think I should be fine. I'm actually considering going to someone to remove it surgically since facials were the only thing that would remove those big underskin zits form my face.

I'm a 34 yrs old male. Starting when I was 22 years old until I had 34 I suffered the following injuries approximately every 1.5 years:
-hip coxo-femoral impingement
-broken ribs from a mild fall
-frozen elbow from a mild fall
-cervical disk herniation with pain and weakness in my right arm
-two lumbar disk herniations with lumbalgya due to lifting a 3kg object
-symptomatic thoracic disk disk herniation due to stretching my back (the occurrence of such injury in the general population is one in a million)

Actually, I had found a possible underlying cause, despite apparently not manifesting any symptoms, two blood serum tests taken 5 yrs apart from each one, showed a vitamin C deficiency. My result in both cases where a value of 1 mg/L, the normal result being 4 - 20 mg/L. Supplementation with 2000 mb of vitamin C raised the value to 8mg/L but didn't help my two active herniations heal, still. Vitamin C is used as a co-factor for the synthesis of collagen, which is why scurvy damages tissues composed of it

am I a big wasted potential, I have a neurodegenerative illness

last year in fall I finished my biochemistry class in college with an A and I could see that my grades were the best because the professor posted our student ID next to our grades. I have returned to college this fall despite great difficulty with my painful fatigue and heat intolerance.

If I stay outside too long in college i will get extremely sick from fatigue, insomnia, and heat intolerance. I have been unable to hold my weight and also have shortness of breath, my body is failing all over, the only thing that isn't failing is my grades not yet it seems.

most of the time I am unaware of how happy everyone else is in life I'm not emo but I feel indifferent to my existence after getting brain damage this is typical of brain disease, it is called apathy and it makes me suicidal.

tI must have had a huge potential for science, that was robbed from me by the horrible disease, I assume it is almost like a child prodigy who is smarter than all the teachers despite being handicapped by their young age, I am a good student despite the massive handicaps imposed by the aphasia and the dementia from the disease.

It might be true that I had amazing potential for science that was never found because the disease struck at a very young age of 16 and destroyed the genius or any potential for success that existed.

does a very strong athlete have a longer life expectancy with cardiovascular disease?

In high school I was a track and field runner and I could run a mile in 6 minutes, I could run 6 miles without breaks in mountainous terrain and 80-90 degree weather.

I was "running at the speed of dark" even black boys on sports teams were like damn... (the speed of dark is faster than light)

in the past year my heart disease has turned me into a shadow of myself I need doors to be held open for me because pushing open a door can exacerbate my breathing and heart condition, my resting heart rate was 113 today. and it has remained at around 100 for almost a year now.

Hey /sci/, I feel in a pickle, see I am the assistant to someone who works at a University who is doing research with these medical machines, they are in a way experimental, in the sense that while they got all the certifications such that anyone, regardless of any degree could take it home and use it there still isnt' any research done with them.

Bottom line is, I am not a doctor, I can legally use these and there is no danger whatsoever for the person being analized but I still want to understand more about what I am doing, so what kind of textbooks should I read to get into Medicine? Is Khan academy a good starting point?

Start with the basics. Anatomy + Biochem -> Physiology + Pharmacology -> Pathology + Pathophysiology -> Clinical/Surgical specs

For every fracture you have to do an approximate allignment to minimalise the bleeding and pain. My question is have any of you done that? Seems scarry as fuck. What if you damage a vessel or nerve?
